Smith was asking me to-day," said Mr. Itowser, as he laid down his even lng paper, "it we wouldn't drop over some evening and havo a four-handed game of euchre with them." hy, I should like to go over any evening," replied Mrs. liowser. "Ho and his wife play most every evening." "Yes?" ' "If you only knew how to play we murht have a gamo now and then." "I have been told that I play fairly well, bhe quietly replied. "Havo, eli! I imppose we might have apame or two, though of course I can play my cards with my eyes shut Have you got a pack around?" "Mr. Howser. I am perfectly willing to play, but you must promise me not get mad if you are beaten-' "Mad! What are you talking about! The idea of me getting mad over a game of cards! "Do you promise?" "My dear woman, in about ten mln titcs from now yon will begin to turn red and white and pet so mad that a yoke of oxen can"t hold you. You are the one to make promises. Get the cards, and if you win one game out of ten 1 11 buy you a twenty dollar hat" "If I win more frames than you do you won't you won't feel put out?" she' asked as they sat down to the table. .. "Good lands! but what is the woman talking about? Mrs. Bowser, I've played more games of euchre than you've got hairs in your head, and no one ever knew mo to feel anything but serene. A husband who can t play game of cards with his wife without getting mad had better hang up. Go ahead and deal. The poorest player always has the deal. Hearts is trumo. eh? Ah, ahl I will proceed to lead this." Mr. Bowser had a good hand and scored a march, and after counting up ho leaned back and laughed and asked "Any other little game that you can play better than thia. Mrs. Bowser?" He dealt and scored another point and chuckled some more, and when the game was finished she had scored only one point' "Beginning to get red in the face al readyha! ha! ha! he laughed. "You hare promised not to get mad, though, and I shall hold yon to it She had nothing to say, but scored a march on the new game. Mr. liowser tried hard to laugh, but three or four minutes later, when the game was fin ished and she clapped her hands and shouted "Chicago!" there wasn't a sign of a -smile on his face as he replied: ."Do you want to wake up the whole town?

He brightened up a little when he scored one, but that ' nil he cot on the game. "That's even games, and I'm a Chi extra ahead!" she exclaimed, as she "O, it Is, eh?

"O. well, go ahead and see how you'll come out!" bhe came out by winning the game. while Mr. liowser had scored only two points. "That's a game and a Chicago ahead. Mr. Bowser! Instead of one game out of ten, I've won two out of three!" "Yes, but how did you win 'em? If you'd played honestly, yon wouldn't have scored two points on a game! There's the trump. What do you do?" "1 order you up, said Mrs. liowser. "Order me up! You can't do it!" "Of course I can." "Not much. No one ever heard of such a thing!" 'Hoyle says that If you have a strong hand and think" "Hoyle! Hoyle. he shouted, as be rose up and waved his arms around. 'Who is Hoyle? Does Hoyle run this family? Is Hoyle playiug this game of cords or are we?" "But my dear, Hoyle is authority on cards." "Never! I allow no man to make rules for me! You either say you'll pass or I don't play any more." To preserve tbe peace Mrs. liowser passed and he turned it down. She then made the trump hearts. "But yon can't do it" he protested. "When I turn down diamonds how can you make it hearts?" "Can't 1 make it what I wish?" "No, ma'am, you can't not In this game! If you were playing with some two-year-old baby you might play a baby game, but you've either got to play a straight game or quit!" "Mr. liowser, Hoyle says that when your opponent " "Hoyle againl I tell you Hoyle has nothiug to do with it! There! We don't play any more! I knew how it would end when we sat down!" "Don't be foolish, Mr. Bowser." "Foolish! Do you suppose I'm going to sit here and be cheated out of my siir ohderkd inn CP. eye teeth? It's mighty funny that a woman can't play an honest game of cards!" "I'm afraid, dear, that you don't really understand the game of euchre," she replied. "I don't eh? I, who was playing euchre forty years before you were born, don't understand the game! That settles it, Mrs. Bowser; settles it forever! If I should live to be ten thousand years old I'd never play another game with you! I see now why so many husbands are driven from home why so many go to de struction. It's because they can't find any comfort at home!" "Mr. Bowser, you promised me be fore we sat down that " "And who raised this row? Who set out to deliberately swindle and cheat?

DURATION OF LIGHTNING Tha Length of a Flash Less Than tha 10,000th Fart of a Kecond. Authorities differ as to the time of duration of the lightning flash; hut all agree that it is less than J,he 10,000th part of a second. The experiment which establishes this fact is due to the late Sir Charles Wheatstone. A disk, divided into alternate sections of black and white, is caused to rotate very rapidly on its axis, and by daylight it appears of a uniform gray. If light ning occurring in the dark render the separate sectors visible it is plain that the duration of light must be less than the time of revolution through the breadth of one sector. The experiment was tried with a disk of sixty sectors and making 180 revolutions in a second, so that the time of turning through tbe space of one sector is the 10,800th part of a second. When the disk, rotating, with this velocity, is rendered visible by lightning black and white sectors are seen with gray ones intervening. This shows that the flash is not absolutely instantaneous, for in this case the sec tors would be seen sharply defined without any alternation of gray. Chambers Journal. Dae to His Creditor.

Recently while attending a county fair where a good many gardeners were exhibitors I was struck with the clumsy and Inconvenient eontrivauces for extending th) carrying capacity of spring wagons. Many were made of. odds and ends of thick boards and without reference to convenience in unloading. By the side of them my own looked as airy and frail as em broidery compared to sail cloth, yet it la sufficiently strong to carry 1,400 pounds in market baskets, and I can unload the whole load without hand ling more than six baskets twice, and aometimes not then, if I chance to sell these six baskets last My wagon Is platform spring, 90 inches by 30, inside measure of box, with a falling hinged endgate. To make a deck I took two pieces of pine board 1 inch thick, 4 inches wide and 6 feet long. These were for bed pieces, to rest upon the sides of the box, which is 8 inches high. This gives room for half-bushel baskets under neath. For platform I bought a dry goods box, 5s inches long and about 20 inches square, for which I paid 10 cents. The material of the sides was X of an inch thick, and of these I used what I needed, nailing the boards on to the edge of the bed pieces and leaving vacancies between of about S Inches. I do not grow radishes, onions or celery for market, so it was not necessary to have the deck boards close together. The nailing was done with long, slender wire nails, driven slight ly on a slant and not all in line with the Li jL center of the bed piece, as that would have a tendency to split it and weaken the hold of the nails. A railing of inch stuff Vi Inches high was nailed around the edge of the sides and back, aetting 00 top of the deck. The widest board was at the forward end, as the deck ia used without a scat and the driver sits among the baskets. Bits of iron screwed on to the inside of the bed pieces project downward Into the clips which hold the seat in place and hold the deck in position on the wagon. Where a wagon has a seat rail on the Inside end holes for iron dowels, the aame kind of dowels must be used in the bedpieccs of the deck. Four triangular wooden pieces are fitted in outside to serve as braces. I am sorry to say that my deck proved too much for the cupidity of some one and 1 shall have to build another, and in this I shall leave off the clumsy, outuiile braces and have four pieces of strap iron, 10 inches long, bent at right angles S inches frian one end and punched for screws. These will be fastened underneath on inside of bed pieces, the long ends projecting down and entering the seat fastening to hold it in place. On the first day of the fair I put the deck under horticultural hall, expecting to get It when the fair was over, but when I looked for it it was gone. It cost less than 20 cents for material and less than two hours' labor to make, so I am not out of pocket very much; but I pity the man who was so hard np as to take it The accompanying drawing, showing end view, will make the way of construct ing the deck more plain. A is tho end of the wagon. The space above A should not be obstructed, as this per mits taking out baskets when the tail board is down. Baskets can also be taken out of the forward end. There are many times when farmers as well as gardeners find such an attachment to a spring wagon a great convenience and worth much more than its small eost L. B. Pierce, in Ohio Farmer. USEFUL SUGGESTIONS. A wooL-GHowEB says that tobacco water used as a sheep dip does not give so good a luster to the growing fleece as some of the 'dips that are to be bought already prepared.

Do not expect any hens to lay eqnaHy well in summer and In winter. If you insist on a good supply of eggs from November till February, then select a breed noted for the ability to lay in the winter. Do not expect every thing of one breed. Fruit men say tbat when fruit is barreled, and is to be hauled several miles by team before being shipped, the barrels Bhould be laid down on their sides so tbat they will not be shaken closer together and thus be left looser in the barrel than when pocked.

It Caa Be Vsaa Be Vsoa I M.y Way A bowl Faxons aad Bousea. Concrete may be turned to many val uable uses about farms and rural dwell ings, and any ordinary workman caa manage it It is made np of the com mon hydraulic cement or waterlime, one part; clean and sharp, rather coarse saud, three parts, and broken stone or coarse gravel, five parts. The lime and sand are mixed dry and evenly as pos sible; thia is necessary, because If mixed wet it will quickly harden and be spoiled. A mixing-board or table is Bade and the cement and sand are spread oa it Water is then added to make a thin mortar. The broken stone or gravel, which should be clean and free from earth, is kept wet, and the required quantity is added to the mortar, the whole being shoveled over and over until each fragment is com pletely covered with the cement. This is important; the strength and solidity of the concrete depend upon it To lay floor, the bottom is first graded and made level, and should be well rammed to get a solid foundation. As much of the concrete is then mixed as can be spread while a second batch is mixing, and is spread on the floor and beaten drown. More of the con crete ia then spread and a cleam joint is made, so that no cracks will be left la the floor. The whole floor is thus laid and made as smooth ss possible by a rubber of plank with a handle, by which the stu face is smoothed and leveled. After the floor is laid it Is covered with fin ishing coat of the cement and sand mortar alone, and this is well rubbed, as before, to get a good surface. It must be left a few days to harden before it is used. It will be impervions to rats, and if coated with hot gas-tnr or asphaltuin, it will be perfectly water proof. The floor should be at least three inches thick, and the finishing coat need be no thicker than Is neces sary to make the surface smooth. This Is the best Door for stables and dairies, The quantities of materials required may be calculated on this basis: A barrel of the cement and three of sand will make 13 cubic feet of mortar, and the 5 barrels of stone or .gravel will make 'M cubic feet This quantity of concrete will make 120 square feet of floor three inches thick. To find the quantity required, the length and width of the floor are multiplied together, this giving the number of square feet in it N. Y. Tribune. CATTLE STANCHIONS. V New Hind Invented by aa Ingenlool Western Farmer. Some improvements on the common stationary stanchion are herewith shown. They are in use in the stables of a Minnesota subscriber and give good satisfaction. Being cheap and easily made, they are adapted to the wants of those who feed cattle in the winter and during the summer or who another year want this space for some thing else. The stanchions are made of two by four Inch scantling and, be ing put together with wooden pins or bolts, they may be readily taken apart and stored away when necessary. The bed piece is mado of two by four inch scantlings and so is the top piece, but IMPROVED. CATTLE STANCHIONS. in the illustration one is removed to show how they are fastened. A A are tho stationary parts; C C the movable ' sides that hold the cattle in; E E are automatic fasteners which hold the stanchions shut In stall A the stan chion is shown open. The space 11 is filled with a triangular board to keep the animal from putting its head in the wrong place. When the animal puts its head in place a push on C closes the stanchion. E drops auto matically in place and holds it shut, as shown in stall B. As seen in the en graving, the movable part C has no pin in the lower end to hold It in place, but one on each side of it A pin at the top keeps it down when it is shut In stall C is shown how the movable part is taken from its place when tak ing the stanchions apart. Stall D shows a simple contrivance by which the cattle can be shut In it they know their places and let out, too, without going In between them. A strong string 8 is tied to the staple N, passes through the staple I and to any con venient place. Pulling on this will close them, and on the one attached at W and E will open them and let the cattle out American Agriculturist Excellent Tonic for Fowls. Iron in any shape is beneficial to fowls. Copperas is sulphate of iron, and if a little copperas is added to the drinking water or ground flue and mixed with their food, the benefit will soon be seen in the reddened combs and healthy look. If an old iron pot is used in which to keep the drinking water gradual oxidization of the iron by the water will cause particles of oxide of iron to be given off, which will be taken up by the fowls when drinking. A handful of nails or other pieces of iron, iron fillings or even iron cinders, if placed in the vessel contain ing the water, will more or less afford iron to the poultry. Iron Is Invigor ating, stimulating aud assists in guard ing the system from disease. Iron is in the system of every living creature, and any deficiency thereof causes weakness and debility. - The use of copperas is beneficial in another re spect It is a remedy for a great many diseases; It is a good disinfectant and sv sure remedy against contagion of a certain character. Do not be afraid to use it A tablespoon fui of solution of copperas in the drinking water for a dozen fowls is sufficient and it is cheap in price; the expense of its use Is but a trifle.
