The Hungarian Plains.
At first the plains softly undulating
are dimpled here and there with shady
hollows; while like golden island? in an
ocean of vivid green lie long stretches
of yellow colza and ripening corn. On
the gently rising upland yonder a dark
round speck appears against the sunlit
.sky; gardually it elongates, and we hear
a voice sinfnnsr in a quivennsr treble
some national ldvi. it is a
- - -
man emerging from the hollow and
trudging homeward along the crest of
the undulation. Then all is silence and
once more, till cominir to a
standstill at one of the primitive wells
by the roadside, we hear the distant
rumble of a wagon as its wheels grind
heavily along, the driver of it sing ng,
as it goes, a melancholy ditty in the minor
key. Then one by one the villages
and solitary farms lying on the horizon
die away, and we enter the boundless
plains. How lonely Ave feel, and what
tiny atoms of creation, with no objects
to measure ourselves by save birds of
prey, and the white clouds sailing far
up in the great, blue, glorious sky! Qur
carriage, though imposing only in the
matter of size, proved very comfortable,
its ponderous hood shielding us from the
heat of the sun, save where, taking
mean advantage of weak places in its
constitution, it shot fiery arrows in upon
us, scarcely less piercing than those
that pour down upon the liead of the
traveler in the desert. The sun reflects
itself in the white and dusty road.
Above the soil on either side there is a
flickering motion of the air like the haze
from a lime-kiln. Everything is hot and
dusty; not an insect is seen hovering
about the low bushes which now
and then skirt our pathway. All
nature is taking its siesta in the dreamy
noontide, and nothing is awake but the
scarlet pimpernel that "with wide-open,
unblinking eye looks straight up at the
blazing sun. We now come to a marshy
distinct, where a lonely heron is contemplating
its lovely image in a small
still pool, and then away we go again
out into the broad purble patches of
newly upturned soil, bands of emerald
corn, and speckled streaks or tobacco,
with its large red and green leaves, and
on through cool labyrinths of maize,
till we come to vast tracts of uncultivated
land, where wild horses with Hying
manes go scampering across its surface
with the natural grace of untamed
things. As day advances and the
shadows of the clouds begin to lengthen
across the plains, a breeze springs up and
plays about us softly, rustling the Jarge
white, surplice-like sleeves of the driver's
garmeut, but not sufliciently strong to
stir his black and flowing locks, which,
weighted with some unctuous matter,
rest calmly on his shoulders. Our
nearest town is Veszprim, but at the
pace we are at present going we are
scarcely likely to reach it before nightfall,
if then. But what does it matter,
when we have th whole of to-morrow,
and the next day. and the day after that,
aTe, and our whole lives, to do the
distance in if necessary? How delightful
to enjoy for once the true feeling of
rest in this world of where
we are but too often compelled to live
at high pressure! Let, oh! let us for
once take life easily under the broad
and peaceful canopy of heaven, and reduce
the dolce far niente to a science.
A literary man writes to the Lon

and with less, fatigue, by an
hour's tricycling than by three hours'
walking. There is an exhilaration ajiout

The. "Smartness" of Worms and Fish,
'I have made some of my most interesting
studies of nature in the morning,"
said Seth Green. "That is tho
time to see the insects at their best to
see the mud wasps stinging the spiders
without killing them, and packing them
away where they are kept alive for
weeks to be used when needed. I have
seen a small green worm hanging down
on a web. An ant, stationed on the limb
above, pulls up the web, and just as the
worm comes in reach of his tiny claws,
down drops Mr. Worm. The ant pulls
up again and again, and worm lets out
another reef and goes down. This sort
of thing continues until finally the ant
grapples the worm and both go down
together in a grand scramble, in which
the worm manages to shake off the ant.
This leaves the worm on the ground.
His web is so strong that it is still
fastened to the limb above. What does
Mr. Ant do? Give it up? No, sir. I
have seen him go up the trunk of -that
tree, crawl out onto the same limb, and
go to work again pulling up the
same web. Then after another battle,
I have known the ant to get the better
of the fight and lug the womi off tohis
hole, three rods away.
41 Why, talk about reasoning powers !
The perseverance and instinct of these
little creatures is wonderful. People
go out to fish. They splash around,
stand up in their boat, drop their lines
three feet away, and wonder because
they don't catch trout They forget
that trout can see. Fish learn that
tackle and fish are, as a rule, local in
their habitation. There are not as
many gypsies among fish as among
men. Any man who will take the
pains to study fish or who will remember
a tithe of what he reads about
them can catch them. They are
smart, but our brains will beat them.
I remember once of fishing for salmon
troutfora long time and taking nothing.
Finally I concluded to get down and
look into the water, ana so, throwing
my coat over my head, I got the required
shade and peered down. The
salmon would sail up and look at the
minnow. Then, with a quick dart, he
would close his teeth round one-half
the minnow and open them again like a
flash. He did not attempt to eat the
minnow, and half of the severed body
would drop to the bottom. When it
had fallen to tho bed of the lake the
salmon would go down leisurely and
eat it. The next time when I dropped
my hook and felt the quick bite of the
trout I let out enough line to send the
hook to the bottom, and the result was
that when the salmon went down for
his meal he was fooled and I had him."
Vtica (N. Y.l Observer
There are over sixty corn-canning
establishments in the State of Maine,
and tho number of cans of corn annually
put up is nearly twelve million. The
farmers are paid about 3 cents per can
for the corn, the tin and solder costs
about 3 cents, and the remaining 4 or
5 oents goes to the manufacturer for
Kutting up and marketing. The cans
old about twenty-six ounces of corn,
and fanners are able to grow from 1,000
to 8,000 cans per acre, the average being
not far from 1,50J cans, of a cash
value of 4o. There are several factor- '
ies in Med way and Franklin, Mas., and
others further south, but Maine puts up
about one-third of the corn in tins -country.
