?AX A. ZEYEI/1T. FublUher.- ? PARKK-USBU RG, " : <! W. YA. LOVE. Asleep or waking, visions of your face. With nit its quiet srruce Auci cold perfection, all the calm surprise Ami passionless great beauty of your eyes. For ever mark my spirit's loneliness In all my dreams of you iu ev'ry place. Ah, sweet, you dirt not and you cannot guess How much your love could bless My whole poor lire that is so sad and strange? How one mere word its bitterness could j chan.; e ! Yet wherefore should I moan for my despair j Since, if 1 could, 1 would not love you less? The very thought of you makes sweet the air With yrtunios rich and rare: The bare fields blossom into garden bow" rs. The sun shines forth as in departed hours. And all the summer land is red and white With that delicious flower whose name you bear I O dear imaginings of day and night. Ye vanish soon from sight, Y et. with your fleeting fancies, serve to show How sweeter than all other things below. How goodly, great and gracious Love must be. That with a thought can bring so muchd^elight. THE SWISS GLACIERS. There are more than four hundred "stream glaciers " in Switzerland and 'the adjoining Tyrol, which have made those countries farnou*. No scene is more striking: or beautiful than these great ice-rivers, placed often amid fer tile and wooded valleys, where there are growing grain lields, fruit trees in bloom, smiling meadows and human habitations. Many ages ago, a greater part of the surface of the earth was covered with a sea of snow and ice, just as Greenland and certain parts of Switzerland are to day. All the minor ridges and valleys of Greenland are constantly concealed under huge layers of ice and snow. The broad wastes of Greenland ice go on slipping forward and down to the sea, where, breaking loose in mountainous masses, they sail away as icebergs? the terror anil dread of the northeru Atlan tic seas. Not many months ago, a great steamship, the "Arizona," ran into an iceberg and broke away a portion of her bow. Indeed, in many eases, ves sels have been utterly wrecked by ice bergs. These floating mountains of ice are often of enormous size. Some of them have been grounded in Baffin's Bay, where the water is 1,500 feet deep. Another, seen by a French explorer in the South Sea, presented a mass of ice nearly equal to the greatest of the Swiss glaciers, it being thirteen miles long and with walls 100 feet above the water. As ice floats with but one-ninth of its bulk raised above the surface of the sea, the term floating mountain does not seem to be an exaggeration. In 1842 the steamer "Acadia" passed one in tiie Atlantic ocean that was 400 to 500 feet above water, and therefore, on a moderate calculation, some 3,000 feet below the surface ? a total height equal to that of the highest peak of the Green Mountains. Glaciers are produced by the gradual changing into ice of the peculiar granu lar snow that falls in the high Alpine region, above the snow limit of 18,000 feet. The height at which vegetation ceases in Switzerland is about 6,000 feet, though Professor Aga3siz found a tuft of lichen growing on the only rock that pierced through the icy summit of the Jungfrau mountain, nearly 13,000 * feet above the sea. The snow, as it showers down, is as perfectly dry as so much tine flour, and the ice formed from it is very different from our pond or river ice, or sea ice, called ice-floe. The snow not only falls in winter but from time to time" throughout the seasons. Melting during the day it is at night frozen into a kind of pudding-stone ice, in rough cakes, which gradually or sud denly slip below to form the first por tion of the glacier. As they collect in very loose order they move slowly down, melting and freezing together, until they become changed into a mass of clear blue ice at the lowest point of the glacier. It is curious to examine one, starting upward from where the ice is transparent and blue, and find it gradu ally becoming less compact, less clear, more light and granular, until at the highest point, where it is snow, it is as light and shifting as down. Very large quantities of roct and broken material from the tops of the Alps are carried down by the glaciers, either quite into the low valleys or to the ledges along the way. These accu mulations on the side of a glacier ap pear, like the embankments of a canal or river, as if built to prevent the glacier from spreading. In the lower portion of Switzerland, called the Jura, are to be found blocks of stone, some of them as large as cottages, transported there by glaciers from a distance of fifty miles. The rocks, broken material and dust are so thickly spread over the tops of most ice-rivers tnat their true character is concealed, and at a little distance, or even in walking over them, not a strip of ice can be seen for some distance. The surface of others, however, are clear like the Rhone glacier, and dazzling to the eyes in a strongsiialight. Strange sights appear in plenty as you wander over onej of these huge ice rivers. Large slabs of stone, supported on legs of^ce, are frequently to oe met with, the leg of ice having been saved from melting by the stone. (These blocks of ice make very convenient ta bles, too, on which to spread out a lunch.) Whenever a glacier's course takes it over a precipice or sharp de cline. the surface is split up into innu merable huge ice-needles and ice-pyra mids, some standing at an angle, ap pearing just ready to topple over and crush auy one rash enough to approach thenar Occasionally, at a sharp decline, the ice river will break in two, the for warikpart shooting ahead and the rear portion graduallv, or as quickly, closing up the gap. A hamlet in the St. Nich olas valley has been, on several occa sions, partially destroyed by the falling of the Bis glacier. At one time 360, 000,000 of cubic feet of ice fell in an in stant toward the hamlet, the agitation of the air causing houses to be twisted around and their roofs torn oft", while many others were crushed like almond shells. In speaking of a scene like this, an eye-witness savs: " It made its pres ence known by a frightful noise; every thing around "ns appeared to move of itself. Rocks, apparently solidly fixed in the ice, began to detach themselves and dash against each other; crevasses [cracks in the ice,] ten and twenty feet wide, opened before our eyes with a fearful crash, and others, suddenly closing, drove to a great height the water which they contained." When these cracKs do not close up, or, as is frequently the case, do not extend to the bottom of the glacier, the melted ice-water Hows down their sides, to col lect at he bottom, and, in doincso, pol ices the ice to a beautiful marine green. I saw a guide on the Groner ^lacier pause over a crevasse many yards wide and nearly filled with water; and such was its depth that, after he had hurled his heavy alpen stock down through the water, some time elapsed ? in fact, I thought it lost ? before it shot up through the green surface. If the water flows into a well from between the layers of ice, a weird sound may be heard coining up from the depths, that has been well com pared to the tinkling of a silver bell. The smaller cracks in the ice become light ly covered by frost or snow, and the careless traveler ruus the risk of break ing through these frail snow-bridges, and losing his life. Such accidents are prevented by the members of a party linking themselves together with a strong, light rope and in case one poi son breaks through, the others prevent him from falling any distance. Several lives have been lost in Switzerland, j during the past season, through the neg lect ot this precaution. It is at the lowest portion of a glacier however, that more signs of its destruc tion are to be seen than elsewhere. The : melting ice at the end of the Glacier des Bois otten forms an ice- vault, or portico one hundred feet high from the bottom of which rushes out the yellowish, ! frothy glacier-water. When the vault becomes top-heavy, it breaks in upon the stream with a thundering crash. One winter one of these vaults was sup ported by a regular and beautifully : fluted column composed of icicles. The lower part of an ice-river sometimes forms a delightful picture, with its flower-covered banks, a rve-field, per haps growing at one side, and the ears of ripening rye nodding over the ice. On one of the most beautiful Alpine routes, the bridle-path leads over green pastures and alps decked with rhodo dendrons and patches of vivid and countless wild-flowers; passing in view of a magnificently scarred and broken I wall of ice and snow twenty-five | miles long, which pierces the I clouds, and increases in grandeur almost throughout the whole distance. About the middle of the sec 1 ond day of the journey we would find j ourselves, after a good dinner, seated ; in a comfortable chair within a seeming i stone's throw of that majestic mountain, the Jungfrau, its summit and higher | portions covered with snow of the most brilliant purity, while one of its minor peaks, called the silver horn, is perfectly dazzling. Here, seated in safety and J ease, we might, on a warm day, be greeted by the rush and bomb of an avalanche. At the distance, though seemingly near, it would appear like a i small white cascade curling up white i puffs of snow, but in reality it would consist of many tons of ice and snow ! powerful enough to cut its way through any obstacle, though there harmlessly ! hurling itself into a deserted valley, i There are many celebrated Alpine i points from which to view the glaciers. In descending from one of these higher overlooking mountains, the ascent to | which had led us a half hour over ice j and snow, the distance was considera bly shortened by a safe and exhilarating slide on the smooth ice covered with downy snow. It reduced the half hour to a few minutes, but I had no wish to repeat the experiment. We simply had I to take a seat on the snow near the : edge of the incline, give a slight push, ' ana before we knew what happened the ! bottom of the snow-field was reached. The drawbacks were shoes and garments filled with snow, followed the next day by frosted toes? in August, too. Near Mount Rosa, in 1861. some mem bers of the Alpine Club discovered a peculiarly grand and beautiful crevasse, hollowed out into a long cavern formed like the letter C. The walls were of a i transparent blue color, arched over I from the sun, 44 while from the roof i above hung down a forest of long, clear icicles, each adorned with two or three laoe-like fringes of hoar frost." They were seeking shelter from a sudden gale of wind, and to enter the cavern : were forced to sweep these beautiful decorations down with their poles. The Rhone glacier is imbedded be ! tween the Gersthorn and the Galcn stock and extends backward like a huge | terrace for a distance of fifteen miles. As its name denotes, it is the source of i the river Rhone. At the foot of this ' glacier, an ice-grotto is hewn into the j mass of clear blue ice. To the right is I seen the Furca road ascending the ! mountain in lon<* zi^-zags. The Grand Millets is 10,000 feet above the level of the sea, and is the point reached by travelers on the first day's ascent of Mont Blanc. During the sec ond day, they reach the summit and re turn to Grand Millets and on the third ! they descend to Chamounix. It was in j the vale of Chamounix that the English poet, Coleridge, wrote his beautiful "Hymn before Sunrise," containing these lines about the glaciers: "Ye ice-falls! ye that from the mountain's brow Adown enormous ravines slope amain ? Torrents, methinks, thatheard a mighty voice, And stopped, at once, amtd their maddest plunge. Motiouless torrents ! Silent cataracts ! Who made you glorious as the gates of Heaven Beneath the keen full moon! "Who bade the sun | Clothe you with rainbows? Who, with living flowers i Of loveliest hue, spread garlands at your feet? [ God! ? Let the torrents, like a shout of nations ] Answer! and let the ice-plains echo, God!" Mont Blanc, you know, is the highest mountain of Europe, and on its side, in an icy desert 9,143 feet above the sea. I is to be found a little oasis of grass and flowers celebrated all over the world as the 44 Jardin." A more strangely placed j ''garden" is not to be found anywhere; j it is the delight of travelers, and there ' are to be seen, in many American homes, carefully pressed flowers from j this lofty garden, preserved as souvenirs j of a visit there. During certain states of the atmosphere, in passing over the upper portions of a glacier, gleams of beautiful blue light issue trom every I hole made by the feet or staff in the ' snow. At that elevation, the snow as . it falls is presented to the naked eye as J showers of white, frozen flowers, all of them six-leaved, but of many different arrangements. When, from a high I peak, the wind catches up this new i fallen snow in light clouds, and spreads , it out like the graceful tail of a comet, ' the Swiss say the peak is smoking a ; pipe ; The glaciers assume many other Strange appearances, sometimes look ing like a pure water-fall, as in the case of "the Palii glacier, which is claimed by i many to be the most beautiful of all. i Sometimes they look in the distance like fleecy clouds resting in the hollows, and sometimes, at sunset, like gorgeous (plains of many-colored crystal. The singular effect called "red" snow," to be lound among the glaciers, is really a curious plant, springing up in such abundance as to redden large patches, just as small plants m;ike green the sur faces of our ponds in summer.? J. B. Marshall, in St. Nicholas. ?Prof. Levi, in lecturing at King's College, London, on the value of a good harvest to trade and manufactures, said that every dav of sunshine during forty or fifty davs after July 15, St. Swithin's day was worth about $5,000,000 to the country. FARM AND FIRESIDE. ?Seventy different species of vegeta bles with over 400 varieties, are grown in the gardens of the United States. ?Farmers should make their home so attractive that the affections of the children will cling to it and return to it often during their wanderings, as the sweetest place on earth. ? To Turn a Horn. ? A country paper thus tells how to turn a horn: Rasp the horn on the outside if you wish to turn the horn in. It will give life to that part and increase its growth won derfully on the side rasped. You can give the horn any shape you please by scraping. ? Sauce Robert.? Put two medium sized onions, chopped very line, with a large lump of butter, in a stew-pan; let them brown well, constantly stirring; add a teaspoonful of tlour mixed with half a pint ot good stock; salt and pep per; cook about live minutes; add a tea spoonful of mixed mustard and one of vinegar. ? For storing onions, there is no bet ter place than a dry, cool and airy loft, where they can be spread out thinly and often looked over for the removal of those which may have begun to de cay. Warmth and moisture are fatal to the keeping of onions and much hand ling is almost equally so. ? The Country Gentleman says it has been fully proven by chemical examina tion and otherwise", that plants in liv ingrooms, or in bedrooms, rather purify the air than otherwise. Yet they may in some cases prove injurious in sick rooms, when the odor is offensive to in valids, Whatever annoys the sick does harm to a greater degree than healthy persons can understan d. ? Black Leg in Calves. ? There is no cure for the disease in calves known as black leg or carbuncular erysipelas, when the swellings on the flanks and legs have appeared. In fact, cure may be said to be impossible at any stage, but prevention is easy. Just at this time the disease is imminent with calves taken from a poor pasture and taken on to good feed or into corn stubble. To prevent danger, give each one ounce of linseed oil daily for three days, and do not let the calves overfeed themselves. ? A delicious tilling for layer cake is made in this way: Take a cup of white sugar, put it into a tin basin with enough water to dissolve it, let it boil until it will harden iu cold water, have a cup ful of stoned and chopped raisins ready, then beat the white of one egg to a still froth, put with the raisins into the boil ing sugar, stir briskly, and while warm put it between the layers of cake, which should be all ready, having been taken out of the tins and laid on a cloth, so that you may easily select one which is nicely browned for the bottom of the cake, and another very smooth one for the top. Corn Smut and Cattle. In the fall of the year there is always frequent complaint of cattle dying after being turned into the corn field, when husking is done. Usually this fatality is attributed very erroneously to the fungus or smut so common on the stalks. One fanner will affirm that he knows this to be the cause, having seen the re sults so plainly, and so many times, that there is no possible room to doubt it. Another testifies with equal energy and certainty that his cattle have eaten corn smut time and time again, and that not the least injury has happened. If this fungus is a poison, it must always operate in the same way. Poisons do not work differently in different cases. Arsenic will poison one man just as quickly as another, and one animal as soon as another animal; and if corn smut can be eaten with impunity by one herd of cows, it can be eaten with im punity by all cows. That cattle do eat it without injury, we know, and so do many of our readers. So we conclude that it is not a poison. The trouble in such cases is not caused by the smut but by the stalks themselves, which cause an impaction of the third stomach. The cattle are turned among the stalks, and without sufficient water, are permitted to eat their fill of the dry over ripe, indigestible fodder. The re sult is death and the smut gets the credit. The same result often happens from other causes. A sudden change from dry food to the stimulating frush grass of spring, from soft to hard water or the taking of lead into the system will cause it. The symptoms of the impaction, in acute cases, are drowsiness and stupor, accelerated pulse and breathing hard ness and tenderness under the right short ribs and tremor of the muscles. At a later stage the eyes glare, the ani mal moves about regardless of obstacles often breaking its teeth and horns against the more solid impediments to its course and bellowing fearfully in the meantime. Death often results in a few hours. So far as feeding upon corn stalks is a cause of this trouble, it may be pre vented by not allowing the animal to feed until it is gorged and by giving it free access to plenty of water. We al ways followed this rule, and never had any trouble with cattle that had eaten stalks or smut. ? Western Rural. A Ladies* Bonnet With a Blush-Pro tlucing Attachment. It is not every maiden, in these pro saic days, who can summon the 44 tell tale blood" to her cheeks at will, or si lently reveal by an opportune roseate flush, those inward feelings to which many young ladies experience such dif ficulty in giving verbal expression. But as the value of the blush, as a high ly effective weapon in the feminine armory, is still universally recognized by the sex, although it would appear to have somewhat fallen into desuetude. French ingenuity has been at the pains of devising a mechanical appliance for the instantaneous production of a fine natural glow upon the cheek of beauty no matter how constitutionally lym phatic or philosophically unemotional its proprietress may be. This thought ful contrivance is called "The Ladies' Blushing Bonnet," to the side ribbons of which ? those usually tied under the fair wearer's chin? are attached two tiny but powerful steel springs, ending in round pads, which are brought to bear upon the temporal arteries by the action of howing the head, one exqui sitely appropriate to modest embarrass ment, and by artificially forcing blood into the cheeks cause them to be suf fused with " the crimson hue of shame at a moment's notice. Should these ingenious head coverings become the fashion among girls of the period, it will behoove ?' young men about to marry" to take a sly peep behind the bonnet-strings of their blushing charm ers immediately after proposing, in order to satisfy themselves that the heightening color, by them interpreted as an involuntary admission of recipro cated affection, is not due to the agency of a carefully adjusted 44 blushing bon net." ? Lo?i<hn Telegraph. the dairy. The New York Tribune says that the habit of holding up the milk, _ when once formed by tlie cow, is very difficult to break. A mess which so gratifies the cow's appetite as to make her forget the inclination as often proves successful as anything. Regular, quiet, quick and comfortable milking is essential. W. 1). Hoahi>, of the Fort Atkinson Wis., Union, gives a bit of wholesome advice in relation to breeding cows, in his last issue, and states in language plain that it is nonsense to breed for color, or any other points, except for milk. Speaking of the manner of Jer sey breeders, who arc ruining the milk ing record of their cows, lie says a good, forty-dollar native cow can discount their high-toned colored squabs a year in advance. According to the statutes of Illinois anyone who manufactures or offers for sale any article having the semblance of butter, which is not wholly made j from pure cream or pure mi'k, unless ! manufactured under its true and ap- ! propriate name and unless each pack- I age or parcel is distinctly branded in legible letters, shall be lined not less than $10, nor more than ?300, or im prisoned in the county jail not less than ten nor more than ninety days, or both in the discretion of the court. Purifying Rancid Butter.? One of our foreign contemporaries gives the following mode of clarifying rancid and tainted butter: 44 Let the butter be melted and skimmed, as for clarifying; then put into it a piece of bread well toasted all over, but not .burnt. In a few minutes the butter will lose its of fensive taste and smell, but the bread will become perfectly fetid." We have serious doubts with regard to the above process producing the results claimed. Still, it is so simple that any one can try it. ? Excliungc. How to Choose a Good Cow. ? The crumply horn is a good indication; a full eye another. Her head should be small and short. Avoid the Roman nose; this indicates thin milk, and but little of it. See that she is dished in j thwlace, sunk between the eyes. Notice that she is what stock men call a good handler? skin soft and loose like the skin of a dog. Deep from the loin to the udder and very slim tail. A cow with these marks never fails to be a good milker. There is more difference in cows than usually supposed and but few really good cows are ofl'eredinour mar kets. If a farmer has a 14 No. 1 article," he won't sell her unless obliged to do so. Now Push Buttlr Cows.? It pays to feed cows giving milk liberally. But ter is high, and now is the time to feed profitably. Every cow should be made to produce as much butter as possible. Whenever butter is twenty cents per pound or more there is money in the dairy business, and the man who feeds most liberally and judiciously will make the greatest profit. Meal, boLh cotton seed and corn, roots, pumpkins and fodder corn, should all come in for a share of attention as profitable food for dairy cows. Whatever kinds of food are used the cows should have all the}* can px-olitably turn into milk. Many men feel that the}* cannot afford to buy grain for feeding "to cows at this season of the year. Let them take a different view and ask themselves if they can afford not to buy grain to feed cows when butter is as high as it is at pres ent. ? Lcwiston Journal. Butter Making Year Round. The public taste for fresh made but ter at all seasons of the year has been steadily growing for several years. There are several good reasons for this change. In the first place the art of keeping butter which is made in dairies under favorable conditions and of line quality is understood by but few makers, and even a less number of purchasers. A vast quantity has been spoiled every year in holding it for a higher price and subsequently sold for grease. This depreciation has represented an im mense loss of money, and the progress which the last five or six years have witnessed plainly indicates that it is only a question of time when all of the butter manufactured for market will be made in creameries. Dairy butter is under a cloud and it is only a question of time when it will not be known ex cept for private or home use. It is im possible that the hap hazard, hit-or-miss plan of the old time (and the misses were far more numerous than the hits) can exist iu competition with the cream ery system. Organization and improved methods ? the result of experience and scientific investigation? make it possi ble to produce an article very uniform in flavor and quality during the entire year, and the public taste is demanding this kind of butter, preferring it even to that made in June. Fresh butter the year round is demanded b}' a large class of consumers whose numbers are being constantly augmented. The art of but ter-making, as now practiced in the best creameries, produces an article which is very line, but to enjoy its high est excellence it should be used within a fortnight after it is made. Tho differ ence in the value of fine butter used in this way, and that made in the summer by ordinary methods represents many thousands of dollars. Now it is as easy to carry out the " all the-year-round plan," as to confine the butter-making period to the summer months. As a matter of economy in labor we believe it is easier. To carry out the plan it is necessary to have half of the cows drop their calves in Octo ber or November and the other half in spring. There is, then, the same num ber of cows to milk the year round and the same quota of "help" necessary all the time, instead of a double force during the summer or the period of butter-making, if all the cows are to milk. That winter dairying is more ex pensive than summer is, we believe a mistake, although that opinion is gen erally held, being based upon the sup position that pasturing is cheaper than stall-feeding." Yet the cows have to be fed whether they give milk in winter or not. But one acre of good meadow gives sufficient hay to winter a cow upon, while three at least are required to past ure her in summer. The cost of cut ting and storing one acre of hay is not more than the use of two acres of past ure. A judicious system of winter feeding will not increase the cost much if any over that of summer dairying. At all events the increased returns received for fresh butter throughout the year provided it is well macle and has in Jan uary the golden tint of June butter ? will more than compensate for the dif ference, should any exist. There is no danger that the business will be overdone. The domestic re quirements for fresh butter in winter are large and increasing and the foreign demand is absorbing larger quantities all the time. ? Prairie Farmer. ?
