THE FISHER BOY'S STRATAGEM.
n .(jijiniiunrmnj, omcom wiw- month -OYlloceoiber, 175, thai ,BD.aea stO'-d ubo liancock'g wharf, iu the town of Boaipa. Seax thein, upon n old cask, 8at a youth of not more tba '.sixteen years, vrhr seemed intent upon nothing inure than the occupation of keeping his hands warm by slsppine uicih upon ma Knees, ne naa ueen en ting thus about fifteen minutes, when the elder of thj two men turned and beckoned .him to approach. . 1 " , ' " Your "name is Maxwell, is it!" asked the gentleman, as the youth drew near. " Hugh Maxwell, sir." Mr. Ross tells me that you think yon .can run. your shallop out of the harbor!'' Yes. sir. I think I can " H On you understand the nature of your - errand !",---. -.- . - Only that I must go out of the harbor to do it. that's all," replied the youth. ' Then," said- the gentleman, whose name was Greene "you are not aware that you may have- to remain outside for several. days?" " Nor do I care," answered the youth, if i remain out forever, only that my work shall be for the good of the colo nies" - "'"There "is a large Tessel on her way "' from Glasgow to this place, and our peo , pie are in much want of her, so much so . that some risk must be ran to get posses sion of her. . Now if the information could only be conveyed to Captain Mauley that she is daily expected, "we will be on the watch for her, and if . John Manley once - gets his eyes on her, she is sure to be the :' property of "Washington. Stanley's ves sel, the Lee, is -somewhere between here and Plymouth, and we want the informa tion, conveyed to him as soon as 'possible. lo you think you can do it ? " ? " Yes, sir,", emphatically .answered the - coy. - .- ' . " When can you leave the harbor n T. This very evening if you wish." . But yoti re ware that every "precau tlon is taken by the vessels in the harbor . to prevent even the smallest boat rrom go .in out,".- : ." - - ' ' r'I know it dir." answered Hugh t " but if you will place your instructions in a .. letter, x will deliver them to Uapt. Manley, . U bis vessel u in Jl&gsachatetts Kay " It was soon aereed that Hugh Maxwell ,' should call at the house of Mr. Greene after dinner, at which time and place he should receive the necessary instructions, and an the two gentlemen turned to leave . the wharf. Hush followed them till he came to the street, and then turning down ..- Ship Street till he came to a small dock just south of Grant's shipyard, where lay moored a handsomely built shallop of not " less than fifteen tons burden She was "slightly ice-bound, but with the assistance of twu men, who stepped on board, he soon had her in good sailing order, and be fore long he he had everytning in reaai . ness for the adventure. He .had obtained a letter for Captain Manley. whieh he very carefully rolled up within a piece of , sneet lead, so tnat in case 01 acciaeni ne might sins, it, and he bai also obtained the .aooisuuice of four fishermen, who were nothine loth to ret out of a place where thir daily avocation "was placed under such an uncompromising embargo. . It was drawing towards dusk, when an x,ugluh nudshipmau came running aown Battery Alley, and stopping the sentry, whose post extended from Grant's to Burrouiihs' wharves, he asked : " - Sentry, is there a boat anywhere about here that can be .very easily and very quickly cast off?" - -"Nothimr smaller than Maxwell's shal lop, sir," replied the soldier, as he gazed - in wonder upon the excited countenance - of the young officer. . ".Never mind the-size," hastily cried the midbhipman, 'only show me where she lay. Be quick, too, or the" rebels will have the start of us." The sentry immediately led the way to . tne dock where the shallop lay, ana as soon as he had pointed it out, the midship man hailed one of the men that stood upon the deck. "ilallo, there, on board that snailop how many meu have you on board f - " Tnere's three of us, sir," was the re ply from the vessel.. .. ". ; "Then start np smartly, all ofyon, and Ijet on board the Commodore's ship as soon as possible ' " . ' "" ' ." - " But, sir," urged the man thus ad - dressed, " this vessel belongs to another man, and we have no " --.Z "Silence, sir, hastiyinterrupted the of- ficer; "I tear the King's commission, and if you -dare to disobey me I'll shoot you the moment you do it 8tart up your ' men, and cast off your shore fasts. Bear "a hand, now."- Then turning to his com . panion, the officer continued : : v " Here sergeant, yon cast of that head line, while I jump on board and start up those lazy rebels!".; . . ' - - - : .' - As he spoke he caught' hold of the mains ay and slid down upon the-deck, and then drawing the pia ol from his pock et, hr sat the three men about the desired work. As soon as. the sargnt had cast off the line, he also slid down upon the deck, and in a f w minutes the- sails were loosened, and lha vessel started out. r"or the first " ime the sentry began to think that thcefflcer ought to have a pass, and as the thought found room among ihe ex cited imagin ions of his brain, he hinted the fact to the officer. - - --"Ah,-ye; I -had forgotten? renrrntd the officer., " Here. - you man there, for ward, get out a boat hook and stop her," ana taking a piece. 01 Jolqed paper irpm his pocket he passed it -mr to' the sentry, saying as he did so:" Thertf is General Howespass, and when -Col. Sutherland comes he wilL be here in ten miuutt s tell him I have obtained a boat, and shall immediately pass the General's commnni ca ions 10 the Admiral. C - ' i-.r : x - The half-bewildered. sentry said he would, and as the shallop put off he very naturally opened the paper h held in his hand, but it had got. so' dusky that .he could not r. ad, and so, as tbepuper looked - all right, he very confidently- placed iV in his -atridge-box, wondering very -much what impor ant thing had turned up, and I. also mu it- ring something about being glad thai the officer made them " Fankees " stir their stumps. .' The wind was blowing briskly from the northward, and the shallop had it fair, and with flowing sheets she started down the harbor. As she neared the Admiral's ship, which lay just off Noddle's Island, . the midshipman had the sheets hauled in, and shoving the helm down," the small p vessel very gracefully -came up underline ship's stern. ; l " ; -?4 - ' Boat, ahoy !" shouted the officer of the deck from the poop of the ship. ' "The General's yacht,", answered' the middy. is Admiral Graves on board?" " No he is at the General's quarter?," answered the officer of the ship.' . " No; he left there over an hour ago," replied the middy, " and forgot his orders, so I've had -to bring -them off. Can you eatrhtbem? - . "Yes.". ! -' -.'.; 1 ;-'?:? "iuok -out then," and so saying the - midshipman threw a sealed packet tip, which the lieutenant easily caught. - .','- "JTow," continued the young cora mander of the shallop, " will you have the goodness to point out to me where, the Viper lays?" The -lieutenant ran. his eyes over -the flower end of the harbor for a moment, and then pointing down towards Specta cle Island, he answered:' . . 1 ".' ' " Do you see that low light just to the ' northward of Spectacle Island ?" -" Yes," returned the middy, as he went to the bow of the shallop, and gazed in the direction pointed out. - , ; --"That is the Viper. "VThat is In the wind, now?"- -. ."I don't know," replied the "midship. i man. " All I can tell about it is that Gen- eral Howe and the Admiral have concoct- ed some plan for an expedition for some . of these small fry, and I have orders far the Viper and Spitfire to join it Good- - night" " ' ' ' -- ; "Goodnight," returned the officer of . the ship, and in a few moments the shallop . was off before the wind. - .- The little vessel, however, did not get . anywhere near Spectacle Island, but as - - soon ss she was out of reach of the ship she hauled her wind, and standing on to the northward of Governor's Island, she . passed out through Broad Sound, and ere '. lone she stuck her nose into the free waters of Massachusetts Bay. . . . 1 1 - "Ha, ha, ha!" laughed out Hugh Max- - 1 immediately replaced it by an wester, say n 2, that is a eOod extern tUe Admiral will he u wfl, Ashe threw tie 'rold-'Werl rap'of iae c.ngiia miaay aown Dy nw siae, ana old sou - one .

Hugh Maxwell run across the Lee the next day, and safely delivered his charge to Captain Manley, after vhich .he ran into Plymouth. In -one week after that time the -colonists -were in possession of tne ncniy laaen ship rmm Glasgow, and for this " streak cf luck" they were solely lnueoiea to tne nsaer-ooy s stratagem. A Word About Early Rising. A medical gentleman who gave years i uivraupuius tne Subject to interview ing old folks, and rummaging among fam- y nistories -states thst he never came across a case of remarkable longevity un accompanied by the habit of early rising, from which testimony it might be inferred that they die early who lie abed late ; but we hold this to be a f&lacy. The medical gentleman started with a theory already formed, aud, after the manner of partisans. looked at but one sice of the question. That most elderly people are early ria ers is due to the damaging fact that they cannot sleep o mornings. They necessa rily rise betimes, and unjustifiably make a monstrous virtue of it Alter a man pastes his fiilieth bi."thday he usually awakess at sunrise, though perhaps he used to let the breakfast bell ring in vain when he was yonnger. As our theorist confined his observations to aged people who could not slumber after the gray dawn had tapped at the window-pane, he came easily to the conclusion that men live to be old because they do not sleep late, instead of seeisg that they do not sleep late because they are old. Having with a great deal cf trouble secured this lop-sided diUum, cur friend started off with his theory of rising with the lark. Not being a lark ourselves, w,e decline to regulate our movements on any ornitho logical principle. We believe in a gener ous allowance of sleep. We believe that too little sleep is core injurious than too mach. Unless a man s business or pro fessional engagements obliges him to turn out very early, ha does his physical nature injustice by delracdrag nimsell ot those delicious morning naps winch so refresh and strengthen one. For men who do brain work there is no medicine like plen ty. of sleep . - - Sleep, that knits np tbe ravell'd eleevejof care, The de&th of eacn cult a life, sore labor's bath. Balm of hurt minds, great nature's second course. L niei noarisner in lile's Run " Cervantes' humble hero did not misplace his benison in showering it on the man that invented sleep; bat the man that in vented waking up much before seven o'clock in the morcizg was no friend to tne Human race. There is an immense amount .of non sense on record in defense of early rising: this has been written cbieny by poets who break tasted wnen they did breakfast at twelve o'clock. Thomson, who gave birth to the atrocious sentiment embodied in the line Falsely luxurious, win not man awake !" was one of the laziest men. of his century. tie generally lay in bad until noon (medi tating verses on sunrise), and did not often get fully awake until later in the day, for ne was frequently observed strolling in his garden at Richmond, after breakfast, eating peaches on a tree, witii Doth bands in his waistcoat pockets .' . We would like to snow what induce ment there is for early rising in the city. W nat is more snaDDy cna dispiriting than a city street before the shop window-shutters are taken down, when nobody is astir but the milk arid-water man, and Mary washing off the front stsps ? In the coun try there is a kind of bloom in the morn ing, that wears off in an hour or two ; this is worth enjoying. Daybreak on the sea coast or up among the mountains is a glo rious spectacle; but familiarity with it breeds-contempt, it is your habitual late riser who takes in the full richness of nature on- those rare occasions when he gets up early. It is well enough to rise with the sun (we won't say with the lark, because we know nothing about its eccentricities) two or three times in the course of the summer, if for no other pur pose than to be prepared to combat the in tolerance of the professional early riser, who, if he were in a state of perfect health, would lie abed until nine o'clock. There are few small things more apt to be exas perating than this early bird with the worm of his conceit in his bill. How he scorns you for your indolent habits I Here he has been up " these three hours," he has read the morning paper, been to the post-office, seen Smith in the distance. conversed with Jones, came near meeting Brown, while yoc you were snoozing away the best hours of life. Let the old fellow prattle on, for come day you will grow restless yourseit alter tne clock has struck five, and will want the privilege of jeering at your son-in-law, or your grand son, or any ot the younger drowsy .heads of your household, vho may chance to come down late to breakfast The old fellow would sleep later if he could, " but he can't and if he wants to make a virtue of it, what's the harm ? Maybe he hasn't as many virtues as you have. He certainly has not had "out-refreshing sleep. Eoery Saturday. , Canal Traveling. " Hallo, there, canting ! " said a Brother Jonathan to the captain of a canal packet on the Erie Canal, " what do you ; charge for passage?" - . tj inree cents per mile and boarded." said the captain. Waal, 1 guess 111 take passage, canting seeing as how I'm kinder gin out walking so far." , Accordingly he gt on board a the steward was ringing fov dinner. Jonathan sat down and bean demolishing the ".fixins," to the utter consternation of tbe captain, until he ha had cleared the table of all that was eatable, when he got ud and went on deck picking his teeth very comfortably. . " How far is it, captlag, from here to where I got on board ?"' - - " Nearly one and a half miles," said the captain. ' " Let's see," said Jonathan, "that would be just four and a half cents; but never mind, capting, I won't be-" small ; here's five cent 8, which pays my fare to here; I guess I'll go ashore cow ; I'm kinder rested eout" - Sunstroke. r TtrE early a lvent of hot summer weath er has brought to the notice of the public the fact that sunstroke ias already proved fatal in more than one case. Whether society at large,' particularly men, wear head gear adapted to resist the solar solstice and tropical heat like that experienced last summer, is a matter 'cf hygiene, and worthy of , consideration. Last year the Commiasioners of Charities and Correction ; established the hospital for the reception of sunstroke patients, in Centre street The treatment there was eminently suc cessful during the exceptionally hot sum mer of last year. The number of cases re ceived for treatment was seventy, of which nineteen only proved fatal. Large ai the proporuon may appear, it is in reality small with the usual results. Over forty of the cases brought in had been drinking heavily. The diagnosis of sunstroke is congestive apoplexy, and also exhaustion, but the ma jority of the casts combine the two. The mode oA treatment is substantially as fol lows: Application of ice to the head, which is regulated by toe heat of the body, the idea being to reduce the compression of the blood vessels of the head. Mean while an axillary thermometer is applied On arrival the patient is divested of all un necessary clothing, sod placed on cool In dia rubber sheeting on a bed in one of the coolest wards. People of lymphatic tern perameht are those who succumb the more readily. The change" for ' the better or worse almost invariably takes place within twenty-four hours, but one case in opposi tion to this stands on record, where a man remained in a comatose state for forty -eight hours, when death ensued. Bromide of potassium and stimulants are also part 01 the treatment, added to which ceaseless at tention is necessary. N. T. Standard.- Anecdotes About Over-Eating. t ... - To ehow What gluttons people may un consciously make of themselves, produc ing derangement in the system which tbey cannot account for, the following conver sation between Abernethy and a gentle man farmer may be introduced : " Do you make a good breakfast?" inquired Mr. Abernethy. " Pretty good," answered the patient "You lunch?" "Yes, I take luncheon." " Do you eatahcarty dinner? " Pretty hearty." "You take tea, I sup pose?" "Yes, I do." "And to wind up all, you sup, I suppose r " Yes, I si ways sup." "Why then, you beast," said the surgeon, " go home and eat less, aud there Will be nothing the matter with you." . This eminent but eccentric physician was remarkable for the stress he laid upon over-eating as a cause of disease ; and wis fond of addressing his patients in such words ss these : " Your stomach being out of order, it is my duty to explain to you how to put it to rights again ; and in my whimsical way I shall give you an illus tration of my position, for I like to tell people something that they will remem ber. The kitchen, that is your stomach, being out of order, the garret (pointing to the head) cannot be right, and every room in the house becomes affected. Repair tbe injury in the kitchen, remedy the evil there, and all will be right in parlor and chamber; this you must do by diet If you put improper food into your stomach, you play the deuce with it, and with the whole machine besides" The Duke of Yoik once consulted Aber nethy, who treated him with the greatest indifference. The Duke, astonished at his conduct said, -" I suppose you know who I am?" -'Suppose I do, said the surgeon; "what of that? If his High ness of York wishes to be well, let me tell him he must do as the illustrious Duke of Wellington often did in his campaigns cut off the supplies, and the enemy will quickly leave the citadel." -. Strict as Abernethy was in regard to the "diet of others, he was not very par ticular as to his own; hence, in common with other physicians at the present time, he was often asked why he did not prac tice what he preached. To such taunts he would reply by reminding the inquire r of the sign post; it points the wsy, but does not follow its course j it is none the less useful for that The exact opposite of the gluttons are the hypochonuriac . men -and nervous women, who almost starve themselves to death for fear of injuring themstlves by eating improper food. To such persons the advice of Sir Richard Jebb may be recommended ; he says : " My directions will be few and simple. You must not cat the poker, shovel, or tongs, for they are naTd of digestion; nor the, bellows, because they are windy: but anyunng else you please." The above advice, both to the too great and the too little eaters, is applicable to other countries than England, to other cities than London, and is just as true in this, as in the last century. Good Jlealtk. To Drudging Women. It is said to be " heart weary and full of care." but to add to that constant labor be yond one's strength, and you find a pain fully sensitive, nervous, overwrought nat ure, steadily wearing out as last as possi ble. - Why not take a little time for rest and recreation ? Is there nothing in life but drudgery ? That the body may be fed and clothed. why starve and let the mind wither? There are women all over the land who think they never have time to read even the newspaper. Only the one theme of work, work, work tor tne mina to aweii upon. . . - - No wonder the little vexations assume alarming proportions that many pretty. merry, laughing maids forget how to laugh in womanhood that these women become fretful and garrulous. Men wonder at the change time has wrought ; often time has less to do witn tne matter tnan tney mem selves. Many a husband who means to be' kind allows his wife to work and slave herself almost into the grave, thinking he cannot afford to hire be id in the Kitcnen. - In the fields the farmer has men. to help him to enrich and prepare the sou lor planting, bnt in a few years strength and vegetation is exhausted. If that tired 'and over-taxed wife only had somebody to save her a few steps in the day, it would do ncr mucn good. Her heart would be glad and light, too, at such an unexpected evidence of affection and tender care, and her health which is failing fast might be fully restored. Slop work early enough in the day to take a little ride in the country, that is, if you happen to be the happy possessor of a turnout, otherwise walk out and let the fresh breezes blow away all petty cares while you enjoy the sunshine and sweet song ot birds. . Then go home and read for half an hour or longer, and see if you do not feel like a new being. Beautiful thoughts will fill your mind, and kindness will take the place in the heart where long lingering resentments have been. You cannot hope to prosper and be hap py, if you abuse your strength or mind. The Bible says that God rested after six days labor, so ought not a woman to rest when she is tired Elm Orion. Hints to House Builders. Many people are about beginning to build a house. Avoid such lots as will re quire your house to face north. - Have your living rooms face south, always, if possi ble. -Put your hall on the north side of the house. . Don't spoil your sunny win dows by stretching a piazza outside which will keep the sun away. .Live in your pleasantest room. Build no parlors to shut up; what is good enough for you, is good enough for visitors. Have a bow window in your living room. Make your windows large and enough of them. Have plenty of closets. A goodly pantry and a closet should be connected with the kitchen. Build a fireplace in your living room. The height of your rooms should be one third .the. sum ot the width and leneth of vour living room If vou build of wood, use tarred paper under the clap boards. Whatever else you may not avoid, don't have a cellar kitchen. The seven years' itch is a blessing to one of these. Paint the exterior in three shades of browns, grays or drabs making blinds darkest shade. Avoid gimcranks in trim mings. They cost and get out of repair easily. Paint sanded outside is most economical. Never build a flat-roofed building. Large panes of glass are better than small, as they clean more easily and obstruct vision less. . Finish a house inside with native woods; if you cannot afford ash. take pine and spiuce and don't paint them, but shellac and varnish, or merely oil. They look mucn better, ana, 11 only oiled, improve by age. Never build a house without providing a bath-room, opening into your sleeping room. - You can pump hot and cold water into it with slight expense, having a couple of pumps over your bath tub, one connected with your cistern and another with your hot water tank on your stove. LeanMon (Me.) Journal. A Mohtreal young man has written to the papers that he thinks it should be pro vided that an action for breach of promise of marriage should not lie unless the be trothal had been formally acknowledged by the passing of a gift between , the two parties, in the. presence of two or more witnesses. A ladt advertises herself in a morning paper as a teacher for "persons of newly acquired wealth and deficient education. USEFUL AND SUGGESTIVE. Lo'bkua, it is said, has been successfully administered by a Cleveland physician In three trell marked cases of lock-jaw. The Ohio Farmer says' you can stsrt a balky horse by filling his mouth with dirt, the philosophy being that it gives him something to think of J. H. Cooper says, In the Journal of the Franldin Institute, " A good adhesive for leather belts is printer's ink., I have the case of a six inch belt running dry and smooth and slipping, which was entirely prevented for a year by one application of the above." Rekbdt fob thk ak-Achb. My wife was once suffering intense pain from ear-ache caused by a tumor tnsit'e, and after our remedies all failed to ghe relief, I called in. a neighbor, who poured vin egar upon "a hot brick, and with a funnel conducted the steam into the ear. Relief was quick and permanent Exchange. ; A ladt writer remarks that if the mis tress of a household would expend the earueamountof time in the kitchen, kindly and patiently instructing Bridget in her duties, that she spends m the parlor gos siping with her neighbors about Bridget's faults and shortcomings, a marked im provement would soon be visible in do mestic affairs. There is a very simple process by which muslins used for ladies' and childrens' dresses can be prevented from catching fire. Dissolve a small piece of alum in the water in which muslins are rinsed. When dry, if a light be put to them, they will smoulder slowly away, but not break out into a blaze. And this so far from being injurious to muslin, improves its ap pearance greatly. Liveb as Food. The California Seien tifio Fre says : " We cannot too stroBgly denounce the use of liver and kidneys as food for man. These organs are constantly charged with the worn out, excrementi tious matters of the system, the presence of which, when rightly understood, are disgustingly offensive to he taste. Their presence is evinced by the fact that these portions of an animal" are always the parts first subject to decomposition. Tbey make very good food for hens anddogs, but for man never!" Destroying Burdock. The St Louis Journal of Agriculture thinks that August is the time to attack and destroy burdock. It says the old sterna with burrs on them should be cut with a spade or mattock just below the surface, and piled carefully together while green. After a few days of dry weather, set fire to them and stand by till the last burr goes to ashes. This done, the young plants that have grown from the seed this year should cither be pulled up or the roots cut off below the collar, and thrown upon the manure heap. Cure fob Stammering. The effectual cure mainly depends upon the determina tion of the sufferer to carry out the fol lowing rule: Ktep the teeth close to gether, and before attempting to speak, inspire deeply ; then give time for quiet utterance, and after very slight practice tbe hesitation will be relieved." No spasmodic action of the lower jaw must be permitted to seperate the teeth when speaking. This plan, regularly carried out for six months, cured me when twenty years old. I was painfully bad, both to myself and others. Without determination to follow out this plan, it is of no use attempting it Ex cliange. Plaster for Corn. A correspondent of the Rural JViie Yorker says : " The past season I used plaster alone on one piece of corn, skipping two rows, which 1 harvest ed, and also two rows on each side of the nn plastered. This was a triangular-shaped field of one acre and one-fourth. The corn on the two not plastered weighed 132 pounds; shortest rows, plastered, 224 pounds; longest rows, plastered, 274 pounds ; or about 100 pounds of corn by using plaster to 73 pounds where not used. There was 150 bushels of corn on this piece. - Ammonia and borax are both excellent articles to have in a house for washing purposes. - They will unite promptly with any kind of oil or grease, and form a soap. Wasning tbe nair witn borax in the water will develop a fine lot of suds, and prove a good tonic So also hair brushes may be thus cleansed. Many are the purposes for which these articles will be found very useful. Borax is very commonly recom mended for extirminating cockroaches, but after some experience we are satisfied that it is not so certain to expel this nui sance. Excnange. When to Cut Hay. Timothy Hat is much more valuable when cut early than when permitted to become ripe. If seed is needed, leave a portion for that purpose ; but the main crop for hay should be cut when in blos som. At this period the plant contains much gum, sugar and starch, which later become changed into dry, harsh, unnutn tious, woody fiber. For this reason, cut early in July. There is a very prevalent idea that the blossoms causes the hay to be dusty, and productive of disease to horses fed on it Heaves are said to be caused by it This is an error. Any dust made by the dried blossoms must of necess ity be shaken off during the handling of tne nay, and it it were not so, tne dust it self would be harmless unless taken into the lungs, which continued, of course. would be hurtfuL There is no necessity for the hsy to be fed in such a manner as to allow this. The injurious dust is that caused by damp and moid, this is hurt ful, in a high degree, and care must be taken to have the hay put in the barn free from moisture. Timothy hay is very easily cured ; we have cut it in the forenoon, and had it well and safely housed' before night by Having it well-spread and turned dur ing the day. Hay so gotten in will come out green and fragrant, will spend. well, and sell well. It is a common idea that Timothy is hard on the land. When per mitted to ripen its seed, this is true, as of any other grain crop: but when cut early. is not exhaustive. Cutting early, spares tne son, gets the nay out ol the way ol the wheat harvest in good time, and gives the farmer more nutritious feed for his .stock. Try it Hearth and Home. The Management of Clover Hay. Clover should be mowed as soon as it is well, in blossom. There is no necessity to wait for a brown head ; there will be plenty to be seen .before the crop is well down. Cut when the dew is off, and al low to dry until afternoon, wh n it should be shaken up and turned before the dew falls. If a tedder is employed, its con stant ute will fit the clover to be put in cocks the same day. If turned by baud, 11 may lie until tne noon 01 next day, wnen it may be put in cocks, made as high and narrow as possible ; th y will shed rain better in this shape, and. if caps are used. a yard square will be sufficiently large to cover them. Caps are to be strongly recommended, and the above size is suf ficient, as the top only needs protection. Put up, and, thus protected, the hay may stay in the field until it is all made, when it may he hauled together. If any cock should be damp inside, spread for a few minutes; it will dry rapidly. Clover cured in the cock is much more valuable than that dried in the sun, and wastes less in handling, fut away the first cut hay by itself, in a place convenient for use in the spring. Cows comirg in early in the spring will thrive on this hay: the milk will be largely Increased in quantity, and be richer iu quality, while the butter will come easily, be free from white curdy specks, and in color will not be far behind that from June grass. American, Agriculturist. Cultivate the Corn. Constant cultivation cannot be too strongly urged for the corn crop. As soon as the blade appears above ground, pass through the rows with a harrow made for the purpose, or with the cultivator. Con stant stirring of the soil will destroy the young weeds and push the corn ahead. A week thus gained may save the crop from an injurious frost when near ripening. An excellent implement lor tbis purpose is Shares' horse-hoe ; with it a careful hand mav cut out the weeds to within an iuch of the growing corn. By going twice in a row the crop may be encctuaiiy hoed, and much hand weeding saved. - The aoTTdoes ' not need stirring detply; one inch is sufficient ; deeper-would injure the corn roots, which : love to spread -near the sur face. Fur this reason all deep cultivation should be avoided. The surface should be kept level; the crop --will 'thrive better than by burying the roots under a ridge of soil ; therefore, keep the plow out ol the cornfield. This crop requires heat and moisture, and a level, mellow, porous' sur face will secure these. A soil packed with rain and baked by the hot sun,1 cannot be endured ; therefore, If a heavy rain should occur, followed by dry weather, turn in at once to the exclusion of ail else, and break up this trust This may be done safely even after the" corn lain tasseL"-"With level and shallow cultivation no check will be given, and good results wul follow. The roots will be uninjured. It is the dis turbance of the roota, when the plant is in blossom, that checks the growth and in jures the corn. - Corn need not be laid by until the rows become so close that the horse can no longer pass through without breaking down the stalks.- Permit only three stalk to a hill. If planted three feet apart each way, with one fair ear to each stalk, seventy bushels of shelled corn per acre may be counted on. Better cultivate five acres -well, than to work and grow weary over twenty, acres aud get but fif teen bushels per acre for yourpny. Amer ican Agricultural.- : The Childless Home. Mart newly-married people consider childlessness a peculiarly fortunate cir cumstance. It relieves them from many cares, annoyances and vexations. It abol ishes the nurse, 'sleepless nights, " Mrs. Winslow," and tbe cradle. It gives op portunities for parties,, balls, the opera, and sundry trips to the mountains and sea-shore, which would be ex'-eedingly inconvenient if a little trouble-maker had to be taken along or left - behind. . There is nobody to litter the floors, turn the show articles upside down, and make con fusion generally ; and there are no sobs nor squalls, which those may call "music" who have an ear for such sounds, " which our childless people have not And then, the landlords are always so civil when they are told, "No children;" that is the "open sesame" to any desirable suit of apartments or love of a cottage. Indeed, many of our newly married people -look upon no children as the universal panacea for the ills of life, and the infallible re cipe for connubial, and, indeed, all other happiness. ' ' But after awhile the brightest and most engaging couples tire of receptions, tnea tres, concerts, and the like. The appetite for excitement becomes sated. The relish for artificial enjoyments gets cloyed. The desire for comfort and quiet tikes the place of the feverish craving for active pleasures. ' To sit down at home over an entertaining book : to break the monotony of an evening by a pleasant -chit chat , a lew toucnes 01 music, or ui amusing 'game; to be; warned of! to bed by velvet-footed ""dreams, stealing over the senses and fining' the ' fancy with drowsy delights these things in variably come in time. . And then comes a yearning for something the heart has not, a looking for what the room does not con tain, a feeling after what no provision has been made for.- But the cradle does not come. The aversion to "care, infantile cries, and confusion of ail sorts, has be come chronic; but little Two Shoes is a tvrant and wherever he sets CD his small despotism insists that the " laws of dis order "shall prevail.- The aestre lor some body to pet, and play with, and dote upon, grows to a hunger, which, alas, does not feed itself, and only gives way to the more painful need of that sympathy, affection, friendship, solace, and support which none but a child can supply. There may be wealth; yet who but a child shall keep at bay the great brood of vultures and cor morants which peck remorselessly at the life of whoever has a purse? .There may be social position, and even fame; but how empty and barren are all honors that must dissolve with the breath of their wearer ? The home may be a palace ,- but its splendid halls will be cold and cheer less as the rorecourt ot a sepuicnre, 11 tney are -not made the portcls of Heaven by the prattle, the merry laugh,, and innocent hilarity of children, through whom the Divine Paternity bestows perennial youth, and hope, and earthly immortality upon Darcnts here. Of all cheerless, unnatural places in the world, a childless home is quite the most uncomfortable. There is something op pressive in its vacancy. Its stillness is sti fling. The heart faints and cries for what is not there. The home into which the Great Father has once placed one of His little ones, for however short a stay, is transformed by that visitation, and can never lose the charm of that mysterious coming, - nor the light that streamed through the door of the noiseless depart ure. That door is open, and no hand can shut it ; and just on the other side the un seen child engages in gambols, or is busied with tasks, which it needs but a little im agination, blended with faith, for a parent's heart to hear. ..No . home can ever be the same again into which one immortal being rose to conscious life, and saw a heaven of love in a mother's eyes. Birth is the great sacrament But the home that has had no such baptism, cold, dull, and dreary is it at the best with none f the poetry of life in it, no legends of angels trailing about it, and no star shining over it to indicate that it is favored of Heaven. The Golden Age. '" :! . '. '' ' The Van Wert (O.) Bulletin chronicles two cases of injury by falling down stairs, both the result of wearing high heeled slippers. The first case was that of Miss Florence Baker, who fell while carrying a lamp and some glass tumblers down stairs. She broke her collar-bone and sustained other injuries. The other was that of Mrs. Davis Johnson, who fell down stairs with a child in her arms, and was severely bruised, though the child was not injured. Yo Cemeteries.
