I HEAR 271' VOICE.
I hear thy voice
In the mocking bird's low tiill
At dewy eve, w'en all is still:
li the gentle zephyrs' niching
When t tic golden day is dying.
I henr thy voice
in the brooklet's rippling flow,
In the pines' sweet murmurs low;
And e't'ii the silent flowers tell
Of tender tones I know so well.
I hear thy voice
From singing bird, from smiling flower,
At blushing morn, at twilight hour;
From sighing winds, from flowing streams
I hear thy voice? All nature beams!

The French Coach Horse.
Amerieau Rural Home.
We are asked whether the French
Conch horse is an all-purpose horse for
the farmers of this country and do
they breed with any regularity and
evenness upon the common stock of
mares. The French Coach horse,
from what we know of his character
istics and history is about as well
adapted to all-purpose horse as any
breed with which wo are aquainted.
hey are of good Bize, are strong, en
ergetic and courageous, and would
walk off with a plow, drill, cultiva
tor, mower or harvester . at a rapid
pace. They would also, before the
wagon, haul out manure and in grain
or hay or potatoes and take them to
market as Quickly as any other horse
bred. And then wheu you wished
to go to town or to a neighbor's or to
visit another neighborhood, in bug
gy, carriage or lumoer wagon we
know of no other horse, unless it be
the trained trotter, that would carry
you quicker and with less signs of
exhaustion. They are also gentle and
docile, hence less dangerous and
awkward than some breeds of hor
In regard to their breeding with
evenness upon ordinary mares; hav
ing been carefully bred under the
surveillance of the French govern-
mentfor about two hundred years.the
type must be pretty well fixed and
their prepotency would bo likely to
cause their colts to resemble them
more than their dams.
We would recommend careful se
ction of breeding marcs. We would
choose those with considerable good
blood in their veins and which pos
sess characteristics such as you may
wish to perpetuate. We-have known
marcs of no decided pedigree, that
were very estimable as individuals
and that, through a lonir series of
years, would foal coJts that would
sell high onjtheir own merits, when
old enough for service. Such mares
you should select for breeding mares.

Beating the Egg Tariff.
The Tombstone Prospector says:
Since the duty on eggs has been the
rule many devices have been thought
of for manufacturing them. The
idea of a Xogales man is, however,
the only feasible scheme up to date
His proposition is to feed liens on the
cheap grain of Mexico and have
them lay in the United States. For
this purpose a long building will be
placed on the line, half in Mexico
half in the United States. They will,
feed and water in the Mexican end,
and when they want to jay they go
to the further end of the building.and
in that way escape paying the duty.

you wish a becoming lit. Odd basques
of black lace over black silk will bo

justable, und worn only when some
thing more dressy than the, ordinary
collar is wanted. They end at the
throat or extend to tho bust, leaving
an open V space or showing a plastron
having a high collar attached. The
flaring collar is wired all round, top and
bottom, and has cross pieces of the
milliner's wire here and there. It may
be of tho dress material, velvet or lace,
edged with passementerie, or entirely
covered with a net-work. Vests of
corduroy are worn with striped cheviot
suits, after the English fashion. A new
arm-size trimming shows a point under
the arm at the waist-line, which forms
a half moon on each side, ending at the
top of the shoulder in a point Sleeves

DreHsIng for the Table.
Table linen has never been of the im
portance that it is to-day. Less than a
hundred years ago country people spun
their own linen, and before that time
the dinner napkin was almost an un
known luxury. As late as 1GGU the
amenities of the social board were so
imperfectly understood that in a man
ual issued for the instruction of
"ladies" the following caution appears:
"A gentlewoman being at table, at
home or abroad, must observe to keep
her body .straight, not to bend her el
bows, nor smack her lips, nor eat food
so hot that it will bring tears to her
eyes, nor drink hastily." As may be
imagined, the table covers and napkins
of to-day are works of art, of which the
housewife of one hundred years ago
had not dreamed. Pure, fine damask
is tho chosen fabric for table linen.
Tints of yellow are introduced very
daintily through all-white embroidery
or the lacy draw work that is so popu
lar. Small detached flowers are work
ed, as if strewn carelessly, over linen
surfaces in fine silk, eare being taken
to reproduce as nearly as possible the
artistic Dresden coloring. Chicago
Air-tight bedrooms are among the
evils of civilization. We do not mean
to say they are quite air-tight, but they
come bo near to it that health is much
impaired by sleeping in them. The
poorest economy is to have large, airy
parlors, and small, ill-ventilated bed
rooms; and yet nTthing is more com
mon. In the bedroom we spend from
seven to eight consecutive hours on an
average one-third part of our lives. A
person govs into one of those rooms
with the door closed. How long will
this air last him'.' Even if we suppose
the sleeping room to contain onu thou
sand cubic feet, it would last its occu
pant two hours and a half. What is he,
to breathe the other five or six hours?
laruonic-aeia gas m otner words, a
deadly poison. Though people do not

eases induced by sleeping in such con-
iraciea auu lii-ventuateu rooms.

stopping place of a coach and photo
graphs the vehicle and passengers at
about 11 o'clock in the morning. About
5 in the afternoon on the return journey
the passengers are met, it is said, with
a supply of mounted prints made from
the negative taken only a few hoHrs
earlier. A fact worth noting in photog
