Written for THE CHRISTIAN WITNESS. MIDNIGHT AND NOONDAY. BY ECCE FRATER. CHAPTER VI. " As you ask me what is my mind, 1 will reply by revealing a long fixed impression, the real secret I have been trying to make known to you for some time." " Before you proceed, let me inform you that the constable arrested several boys, down town, on the charge of pilfer ing. They had been loafing around Wilson's grocery for a long time, and were under the eye of the clerk, on suspicion, and yesterday he came up with them and found several bills on their persons, stolen from the money-drawer." "I am sorry to hear of such I hint's; those boys are ruined !'"! life. Oh, how their parents must feel!" " Yes, and you call me cruel when I keep Will in of nights, and make him work ; and if he had boon let run, he too, would have been perhaps as bad as (he boys under arrest." " No, no, my dear husband, I never blamed you for keeping the boy off the streets, and from loafing about the stores. I could not expect any good end for Willie if he followed such a wicked and idle course, for boys almost invaribly come to some bad end who run about the town after night, and loaf in stores by day.". " I knew that you would, by and by, give me credit for my course with the lad, aud you will find out that I am always about right." "Again, husband, you know that our boy never wants to be found in bad company, nor is he inclined to lounge around the shops and stores of tho vil lage." . " Yes, I give him sredit for that." "But I must return' to the object I had in view at the com mencement'of our conversation. My mind concerning Willio can be stated thus : 1. That ho is naturally in clined to piety, always was re ligiously inclined, and I believe he knows what it is to bo iu continual favor with God. 2. lie is a apt scholar, and Mr. Wood says, will be a fine literary adept if ho has a chance. 3. He is a natural orator, as his declarations before the large crowd at the exhibition evinc ed." , ; 4. He loves the Bible and religious books, beyond all oth ers.' : , '.,1 5. He says himself that : he would rather be a minister, than own all tho world, j Thus I , approach my , Jong settled impression, that it is our duty to assist preparing tho hoy for the work of the Church." u You astonish mo wife. I i- J i ! ii , Mr''-1 ' ' ' ' never : thought ii such: a .thing, i i Tr ' 1 . 'if -X . arid besides alllhat,'ir will re quire more expense ;than I anj disposed to - waste on other people's children." ( .' ". You do not: suppose that you would be-wasting money in using it for the Lord ? No, I know that you do not, and it would be devoted to the glory of God if expended preparing a minister for the Church." " I don't think there . is any use talking, if this is the 'strange thing,' you had to tell me, I must confess that it is passing strange, aud would -so interefere with my plans that I cannot entertain the suggestion for n moment." ' - " What were, and are your plans then ; please inform me? for I have freely expressed my senfe of duty." " Well, to be plain, and not waste precious time, for I must be going; it is my intention to pursue the following course with the boy." TO BE CONTINUED. Buying Poultry. Few housekeepers, and fewer cooks, are as good judges of the age of poultry as they ought to be. We all know when poultry comes to the table, whether it is tender or tough ; and there should be no difficulty of know ing just as certainly, whether a chicken, duck, goose or turkey s old or young, when it is of fered for sale. Now the follow ing is offered as a rule by which poultry, can be safely judged which if read over" for a few times, and then laid away for ready reference when needed, no person need purchase old, tough poultry unless from choice. ;Jf a hen's spur is hard, and the scales on the legs rough, she is old, whether you see her head or not but the head will corroborate your observation. If the under bill is so stifT that you canuot bend it down, and the comb thick and rough, leave her, no matter how fat aud plump, for some one less particular. A young hen has only the rudiments of spurs; the scales on the legs are smooth, glossy and fresh color ed, whatever tho color may be ; the claws tender and short, the nails sharp, the under bill soft, and the comb thin and smooth. An old hen turkey has rough scales on the legs, callosities on the soles of the feet, and long strong claws ; a young one is the reverse of all these marks. When the feathers are on, the old turkey cock has a long tuft or beard, a young one but a sprouting one ; and when they are off, the smooth scales on the legs decide tho point, he side the difference in size of the wattles of the neck and in the clastic shoot of the nose. Au old goose when alive is known by tho rough legs, the strength of the wings, particu larly at the pinions, the thick ness and strength of the bill, and the fineness of the feathers; and when plucked by the legs, tho tenderness of the skin un der the wings, by tho pinions and the bill and the coarseness of tho skin. Ducks aro distinguished by the samo means, hut there is this difference that a duck ling's bill is much larger in pro portion to the breadth of its head than the old duck. A young pigeou is discovered by its pale colors, smooth scales, tender collapsed feet, and the yellow, long down interspersed among its feat he rB. 1 A pigeon that can fly has always red colored legs and no down, and is then too old for use. ' The present number of Gran ges in Wisconsin is 220. Mrs. Bacon's Neighbors. It was a block of. yellow, brown houses iu south Boston, looking as much like a sheet of gingerbread as anything. An express wagon had just backed up to No 21 in that block, and the driver unloosen ing ropes here and there, pro ceeded to unpack tho, luggage. ' "What have we here?" ex claimed Mrs. Bacon, the down stairs tenant. A menagerie, I do believe." Come here John." There was, indeed, on the very top of the load, a gray horse that in the twilight look ed very - real till one noticed trie :icitef sfatir whi-cb it'stood. Sat there was a kennel with a live terrier's head at the window a bird cage with its fluttering tenant, a crib and high chair besides, suggesting : that the folks in the other Dart. might, in the lauguage of . Mrs. Bacon, "make music." Now the down-stairs tenants, Mr. and Mrs. Bacou, were pre cise orderly people, living like many other city; people, in' des ert-island fashion, and only hoping that everybody else would mind their own business. It had been for weeks their groat comfort that the "other part" was unoccupied, and now this load of household goods brimming over with pets and their belongings was an unwel come sight. There were no young Bacons thank heaven ! Plants did not flourish in their shaded window, nor canary birds splash water from their tiny baths upon the clear glass. No dog bark ed a noisy welcome when his master returned at night. No catpurred in its mistress' lap. the houskeeping of the Bacons was a fight against dirt, dust, sunshine and noise. Somehow pets bring all these. "WellJohn," said Mrs. Bacon, as she turned from the window and pulled the shade over the sacred glass, "there's an end to peace and quiet. We must just keep tho entry doors lock ed, and don't you be whistling or singing round to attract a child. 'Give them an inch and they'll take an ell.' If folks must have rocking-horses and what goes with them they ought to move into the country where they won't be pestering other people." But, to the surprise of the Ba cons, they were not "pestered," only by the patter of little feet overhead, or a woman's voice singing cradle songs or joining in her child's laughter. Crying there was, too, sometimes, but it was so soon hushed iu moth erly caresses, that it seemed a sort of rainbow grievance only. At night, when the father returned, there was, indeed, quite a joyful noise up stairs, at which times John's face was a little wistful. But the new family did not intrude for ever so small a fa vor. Mrs. Bacon , took good care to keep out of sight whenever tho new tenants were passing through the entryway. One small pair of boots had consid erable traveling to do up and down the stairs for a stroll up on tho sidewalk, or to old "Dor chester Heights'', just beyond, for fpoils of spring flowers. One day little boots came back from this favorite resort, and instead of climbing up stairs,' as usual, strayed hesitatingly toward Mrs. Bacon's kitchen door.' "Smells the gingerbread I" soliloquized Mrs. Bacon grimly. "Glad tho door is locked." She glanced toward it lo bo sure Yes, it was locked, though tho key had lieen transferred to an other door. But shining through the keyhole was a very bright and sweet looking star of an eye. Only a moment it twink led, and then there was thrust in very gently , tho stem of a dandelion, and the small boots scampered away up tho stairs. "Little Mischief 1" exclaimed Mrs. Bacon, and she would have pushed the intruding stem outsidev4)ut her hands were in i the dough, j 'If he wanted a piece of ginger-bread why did'nt he say so? Mebbe he was afraid of me. Cats run like all possessed when they see me. I can't have my key holes chok ed up with dandelion steams that s so I Soon s I get my hands out of this, it will walk into the stove that dandelion will." But the dandelion was so fresh and perfect and brought right back the ohl childhood days to Mrs. Bacon so clearly that she changed her mind. There was an old horse-radish bottle on tho pantry shelf, which, filled with water, receiv ed tha dandelion. There. rest- ing in the kitchen window, it smiled all day. There was quite a commotion up stairs that night, and John and his wife drowsily hearing it, thanked their stars that they were not routed by children's ails. The next day Mrs. Bacon's watchful oar caught the sound of "Little Boots" on the stairs, and again the blue eyes twink led at the key-hole. This time the door opened in response. "Well, child, what is it ? Want some gingerbread ?" "Oh, no, thank you dear," said the iittle voice a verv hoarse little voice it was and the throat was all wrapped in flannel. "I wanted to know ifi you liked my fower." "See !" Mrs. Bacon pointed to the glorified horse-radish bottle. "Ally! Ally, child!" cried the rjnther anxiously. "Come back, darling, you'll get cold." "I'll take him up," responded Mrs. Bacon ; and taking with unwonted tenderness the three years' old darling, she landed him safe up-stairs. "It's the croup," explained the mother. "He got cold yes terday out for dandelions his favorite flower, ma'am calls 'em preserved sunshine saw me put up fruit last fall there's where he got the idea, though as to telling where he gets all his ideas that beats me 1 The doctor says he's that kind of a child croup is likely to go hard with scares me to death to hear that cough." "Goose oil is good," remarked Mrs. Bacon. . "Did you ever try it ?" asked the new neighbor innocently. "Me ! No use for it. Got a bottle though. Have it if you like." Alas ! tho doctor's prophecy was true. The fatal disease de veloped that very night. Littlo hoots are still and the starry eyes shine far off now. As ho lay iu his beautiful, last sleep a flower amid the white llower a woman's brown hand slippled a few dandelions tenderly, oh I 60 tenderly, into the dainty, cold fingers. "That is right,. Mrs. Bacon, dear," - said the poor mother. "'Preserved sunshine 1' That is what ho is for us." Tho new tenants have moved into tho country, and No. 21 4mnmftnr iu i.if ' l i IVIIVIUVUK Id l Mrs. Bacon hopes the land lord will add to his advertise- ment, "No objection' to chil-1 drcn."

It will color cotton and wool. Have the bark shaved off, and chop ped in small pieces, and put in a brass kettle or tin boiler with soft water enough to cover the bark, and boil till the strength is out ; then skin out the chips and put in Alum. Have it pounded pretty fine. For a pail ful of dye I should put in two good handsful, and wet the goods in warm water so there will be8 not dry spots on them ; wring them as dry as you can, shake- thenu out ; and put them in the dye. Have a stick at hand to push them down and stir them immediately so they can have a chance all over alike. If the color is not deep and bright enough to raise the goods out ol the dye, lay them across a stick over the kettle and put in another handful of alum.- Stir it well and dip again. It will want to be kept in the dye and over the fire to a scalding heat about an hour, and keep stirring and airing so they will not spot. The Home Journal thus dis courses on the etiquette of bow ing. The difference between a courteous and a familiar bow should be remembered by gen tlemen who wish to make a fa vorable impression. A lady dislikes to receive from a man with whom she has but a slight acquaintance, a bow, accompan ied by a broad smile, as though he was on he tmost familiar terms with her. It is far better to err on the other side, and give one of those stiff ungra cious bows which some men in dulge in. Those gentlemen 1 - M i 1 At wno emue witn tneir eves in- stead of their mouths, give the most charming bows. As for men who bow charmingly at one time and with excessive hauteur at another, according as they feel in & bad or good humor, they need never be sur prised if the person thus heated should cease speaking altogettw er. A man should always lift his hat to a lady. The suspense is over at last We have now a final summing up of the achievements of the Ohio election. The Democrats elect a Governor,and the Repub cans the remainder of the State ticket. Ms. Little, the gentle man who was marked for de feat as the candidate for Attorney-General, is a Republican politician of cross-roads caliber, who has a local name and hab itation in Greene county. He distinguished himself in the last General Assembly by engineer ing a measure known as the Little Lottery Bill, with a viw to "making himself stout in certain newspaper quarters. It is not to bo presumed at all that his connection with that remarkable piece of legislation had any thing to do with his Cincinnati Enquirer. I no 6tate ot education in France is discouraging.
