Farmers and Farm Help. , As thoro nro "books nnd books" moaning good and bud ones so thoro nro "men nnd men." Some farmers never have any troublo w'th their help and tlio farm work moves as steadily and with as littlo friction as clock-work: othors aro incessantly in troublo and everything goes wrong. Wo aro acquainted with men who nro laborers by the month or year on the farm, and who mako thoir employers' interest their own. Thoy work as well when tho boss" is away as when ho is near, nnd, in everything thoy do, thoy consider how they would not if in their employer's position. There aro others, also, who labor simply for tho monoy thoy receive; they have no interest in the work, but listen with a keen oar for tho dinner horn and watch with eager oyo for thu sotting of tho sun. To do tho work somehow not necessarily well is tho principle which governs them. Tho farmer who is p Articular as to whom ho employs; who nas tho bargain well understood, who pays well, pays willingly and pays promptly; who appreciates good service and fairly fulfills Lis part ot tho agreement, need have littlo fear of being troubled by his help. For such employers there is always some one to oiler service; such emplovers aro sought by ''hired men," and in nine cases out of ten, satisfaction is mutual. But, unfortunately, not all employers are thus careful as to whom they hire or how thoy treat their help. Thoy select from tho "rough scuff" class, from tramps and those who never have had a steady situation, simply becauso they can Inro them for twenty-five cents less per day though, in reality, they roceivo a half dollar per (lav less in return for services. Tho usual result is. that tho farmer has to oversee all his work personally, look after tho implements when not in use, go here and go thoro to give instruqtions, nnd thus lose largely his own time which, with intelligent, industrious help, could bo elsowhcro more profitably employed. In fact, each is intent on getting tho most possiblo from the other, neither having tho welfaro of the other at heart. Such a condition of things is neither agreeable nor profitable. We aro awaro that tho samo differences aro liable to arise' between employers and employed in other occupations, but tho effects aro more striking and moro noticeablo on tho farm than in the work-shop or store where tho routine of duty is moro easily marked and the labor is moro mechanical in its nature. Farm work can never bo reduced to such exactness in detail that tho workman can perform it satisfactorily unless ho is thoroughly interested in it, nnd in hearty sympathy with his employer. So much for tho hired hand, and on tho other hand, to keen this in terest alive, thero must bo on tho part of the employer tho approval and appreciation of work faithfully done. But thero is something moro in this than tho baro fa ts of work well done and well remunerated. There is a genuine satisfaction on tho part of both employer and employe, and tho resultant happiness which accrues to tho men themselves and to thoir respective families is a thing to bo sought for and prized. But when tho men are continually at "loggerheads," their families feel tho reactive influence, and even society is, in a degree, affected adversely by it. Whatever, then, will br ngj about mutual contentment and good will among farmers and their help should bo fostered, and while "hired men" aro fallible, the farmer should remember that it is largely in his power to make their mutual relations agreeable.- Caro of Carriage Tops in the Summer. Tho hot sun during tho two or thrco summer months does moro injury to carriage tops than all tho changeable weather during the remainder of tho vear. This is not necessarily tho case, but is rather tho result of carelessness or ignoranco in caring for the leather. The black, bright surface of tho leather becomes very hot, and, although it may never reach the samo degree as when being manufactured, tho enamel softens after a time, and crawls or scales oft; dust also settles on tho leather and adheres to the soft enamel, injuring its appearance and tending to cause It to dry out more rapidly than it otherwise would. This difficulty is often increased instead of being corrected by carriago repairers, who, in order to restore tho appearance of tho top, varnish it with a coat of common copal varnish; this becomes sticky, and when tho top is let down tho surfaces adhero to each other, and when cold, on lifting tho top the varnish 6cales off, carrying with it tho original enamel. The best method of preventing this is to sponge oft' tho top with clean cold water immediately after using. This will remove all dust and tend to keep tho enamel solt and elastic, and prevent its sticking. It should also bo oiled occasionally with sweet oil, applied with a cloth, and afterward rubbed with a linen or silk rag. Tho top should always bo kept up when standing in tha carriage-house, and bo covoreil with sheet. If tho enamel has cracked or turned gray, tlio top should bo washed oft with castile soap and soft water, and well dried with a shammy." All parts whore tho lcathor is exposed should bo colored with vinogar rubbed over with a coat of blacking, prepared by mixing a small quantity of ivory black with a sufficient quantity of brandy to reduce it to a paste, and thinned with cream or sweet oil; apply with a cloth, and allow it to stand until nearly dry, then nib with a woolen cloth until all surplus color is removed; apply a thin coat of sweet oil, and polish with a silk rag. This will restore .tho color, soften the leather and prevent the enamel sticking. Household. ' Whorover ho goes, Oscar Wildo tramples ruthlessly upon tho hearts of tho people.
