Rread is the staff of life, but a stafl
khould be well varnished. Therefore,
with bread we should have butter, and to
put poor butter on good bread would be
little less than sacrilege. Good bread,
with good butter, of the natural color, is a
bill of faro fit for a King or a free Amer
ican citizen, which are, really, correspond
ing terms. People could live years on
oread and butter alone, if they were with
out any other articles of food, and the
better the bread and the butter, the more
wholesome and muscle-making would he
We have in former times, made repeated
and bitter complaints of the poor quality
of butter brought to th-s market, and hae,
oc.cjsioni.llv-, been almost persuaded, by
the arguments of alleged butter-makers,
(or the makers of alleged butter),
that the producing of a good article is an
impossibility in this climate. Rut we are
now fully persuaded that the climate is
uot to be saddled with the sins of slovenly
or ignorant farmers or dairymen, and that
the exercise of proper degrees of care and
skill will produce a good quality of butter
in this county of Clark at any season of
the j ear. For, let it be understood that
there has been, during the past few years,
a great improvement in the quality ol but
ter made in this vicinity und sold in this
market, and we take pleasure in saying
that we now find as good butter, made here,
as can be found anywhere in Chautau
qua, or Orange county, New York,
o in France or England, and
the statement that the French and English
make excellent butter, must be accepted.
But, fortunately, we are not left to give
our testimony, to stand simply on.its own
strength, as we hare, in an editorial utter
ance of the American Dairyman, of New
York, the central and leading organ of the
dairy interest of the United States, evi
dence from the highest source of the truth
of our assertion. The editor of the Dairy
man speaks of some specimens of Clark
county (Ohio) butter as follows:
"We have lately been the recipients of two
baskets of butter addressed to the proprietor
and editor of this paper, that were the finest
simples of winter butter we ever put into our
fathomless editorial maw. The latest style,
you know, for butter ou the table is in small
lumps, fashioned after strawberries or otbei
convenient forms. ell, in te center ot
these baskets was one large lump, slightly
figured, wliile surrounding it, like a basket
of nuts, were two or three pounds ot doable
cones, containing about an ounce of butter
each, fresh, crisp, nutty-flavored, hard
and dry as rocks, and with an aroma
almost as rich as June butter. It was worked
perfectly dry, and yet the grain was
perlection. The color was a light straw,
natural, we take it, as the butter was mad
from Jersey milk, and there was just a trace
of salt in it. It reminded us more closely ot
the ussalied b'utter we ate in the best res
taurants of Paris, than any butter we have
ever tasted outside of tbat heaven of high
"That butter," says the editor of the
Dairyman, "was made by Mr. Edward
Harrison, Springfield, Ohio, from his herd
ot Registered Jerseys," and the editor lets
Mr. Harrison tell bis own tale as follows:
with the best dairy rules, from healthy and
tentle Jerseys that are kindly treated, being
ted with the best tl at can be given them, and
in the maLing neither milk, cream, nor but
ter ever comes iu contact with the hands.
The sample I send was made priicipsl' trom
the granddaughters and great granddaughters
ol 'llatchles,' a cow of some considerable
time Mr. Hardin will remember her and
her daughter Dimple."
To this the editor of the Dairyman re
sponds, as follows:
"Ah! well, we do remember old Matchless
and ber beautiful daughter Dimple. She. was
the first imported or registered Jersey we
ev er owned, and the best. We bought her off
shipboard at Baltimore, and got her cheap
because she had a white tail. We always
felt grateful to that white tail. The old cow
djed the property of Mr. Burden, ot Troy, X.
Y., and we know ber blood tingles now in
the veiiis of a number of offspring high up in
the fourteen-pound list. Dimple, that we be
lieve has made over fourteen pounds a week,
wa bred exactly after our choice; but, alas I
for us, the Club would not register her sire,
Wallace Barnes.' We sold the bull, and
nevtr had the lack to get so good a one
again. The Club subsequently relented and
allowed him to be registered, but too late to
save our system ot breeding."
But there is, now, much other cry good
butter besides that made by Mr. Harrison,
or rather Mrs Harrison and her accom
plished daughter, Miss May, made in this
county, and sold in this city, and it is sold
for nearly twice the price of ordinary but
ter, and paid for, at high rates, without
grumbling, by persons who accept the fact
that really good butter, as well as cheese,
has nourishing qualities to a ten-fold degree
abov e those possessed by poor articles of
this kind. And good bntter can always
be sold, in any state of the market, at any
time of the year. There is an important
financial bearing in these facts for those
who wisli to give them practical develop
ment. It requires not much more labor
or time to make good butter than to make
poor butter, and the profit realized from
the genuine article is much greater than
that from that which is bad.
Boston is now suffering terribly, from
lacerated feelings. As if what Howells
and James are printing about her in their
novels were not enough Mr. Amos A.
Lawrence, one of the Lawrences and a
citizeu of Boston, says of her: "If there is
any place in the world that represents
Sodam and Gomorrah it is Boston." Mr.
Lawrence should travel about some, and
visit Cincinnati and Chicago. He might
change his mind.
It is not because Cincinnati has nothing
to expose that she is to have no exposition
this year. There are Tom Campbell and
Beresford, yoj know.

has been quite a stride toward reform

reach the city and my business It is
by no means a pleasant matter, under
any circumstances, to have one's move
ment regulated by a tmie-t ible, and to
be obliged to ri-e to bieikfist anil to
leave home at a certain hour, no mat
ter how strong the temptation to
delay may be. But sometime- the
horrible puiietu ility of the tram is pro
ductive of ab-olutc suffering For in
stance: I look at my watch when I
get out of bed. and (mil that 1 have
apparently plenty of time, so I dress
leisurely and sit dow n to the morning
meal in a frame of mind which is calm
and serene. Just as I crack my first
egg I hear the down train from Wil
mington. I start in alarm, and taking
out my watch I compare it with the
clock and find tint it is eleven minutes
slow, and that 1 have only live iu nutes
left in which to get to the depot.
Just as I get to the gate 1 find that I
have forgotten my duster and tho bun
dle my wife wanted niototake up to the
city to her aunt. Charging back I
snatch them up and tear dow n the
gravel walk in a frenzy I do not like
to run through the village; it is undig
nified and it attracts attention; but I
walk furiously. I go faster and faster
as 1 get away from the main street.
When half the distance is accomplished
I actually do hear the whistle; there
can be no doubt about it this tunc. I
long to run, but I know tbat if I do I
will excite that abominable speckled
dog sitting by the sidewalk a little dis

just as the tram begins to move. I put
on an extra pressure, re-olv mg to get

as the last car is going by. I seize the
hand-rail, I am jerked violently around,
but finally, after a desperate effort, I
get upon tho step with my knees, and
am hauled in by the brakeman, hot,
dusty, aud mad, with my trousers torn

she had changed her m nd. What fol

and a number of other members, most

"I don't know whether you ever

party, "but they have a law out in Ken

There were a number of parlor-cars
and twoordinarv paenger coaches on
a train which left New York for Phila
delphia at 7 o'clock a few nights ago.
Every scat in the passcngcr-cojch.es
was "occupied in one way and an
other when the List boat arrived from
New York. Among tho people who
camo at the last moment was a fiery
and untamed Irishman, who-e face was
frir."ed with a wealth of ecru hair. He
walked through the smoking-car, found
every scat occupied by two men, and
then" burst into the next car impetuous
ly. The air at once became redolent
of rum. Ho ca-t his oy cup and dovvn
on either side of the car and saw that
every scat was occupied by parcels,
lugg'age, feet, or the sprawling forms of
passengers. One or two seats had been
turned, and one gray-haired man w ho
had a specially lank complement of
legs, succeed, d in occupy ing tvvo bench
es by dint of stretching himself out like
an octopus, and ingcnioiislyfilling intho
spaces not occupied by himself on the
benches with bits of luggage. The Irish
man directed toward bun a glare of un
usual ferocity. Ho walked the long
length of the car twice, but tho passen
gers carefully avoided his gaze. Appar
ently they were all sleeping serenely.
Then lie "leaned against the door and
carelessly placed his hand on the stove.
He removed tho hand, walked to the
other end of tho car, and washed his
hands carelc-sly with water from the
ice-tank. The train was now speeding
across tho Jersey meadow s. Still no one
offered to share his scat with tho latest
arriv al, and the Irishman went back and
leaned against the door once more. Fin
