HOUSE AND FARM.
Hints For the Season.' 0
Don't let a lew sunshiny "*days*"decerve
you in the Jetting up on the care of your
stock. -February and Marcli are hard
months, especially lor growing anf trials.
The appet^tfe )ias^ flagged somewhat, land

(t changes of weather are ve^y
trying. & little neglect will surely cause
them to get a set-back a few set-backs

meanswell, the butcher or the stock
buyer will tell you that this means, in
language that you ought to unaers^nd.,,,
viz., dollars and cents.

In-coming cows or*ewes need the best
of care as to feed, dry, pure air^warmth,
and bedding. Slippery watering places,
too high feeding, injuries from crowding
and exposure, are all to be guarded
against. Colonel Waring says that he
does not fear ever again to lose a cow bv
milk fever. "Judicious starvation just
before and after calving," is relied on to
prevent it*
The hensand especially the pullets,
are beginning to sin in their cheerful,
contented manner on the snnny side of
the barn, or in the comfortable coops.
This means more eggs and unless you
expect to get something from nothing
you know what the biddies require. Only
don't forget the shell-making material
fresh water, clean nests and warm break
fasts.
Barn Notes- We must be careful now
a days while the barn-yaid is wet and
mussy, or a great deal of fodder will be
wasted. It is now too late in the season
to feed strawr but plenty of it will be re
quired for beds. The calves and young
animals must be kept clean i.f they are ex
pected to be healthy a foul stable will
cause a young thing to lose its appetite.
This is one of the common failings on a
farm to put off cleaning stables and it is
a most unprofitable form of shiftlessness.
It makes pigs scurvy and lays the founda
tion lor mange it gives calves the diarrhea
and makes sheep and lambs sick. The
cows are suffering for lack of the curry
comb and brusti soap-suds and a sponge
are needed back of the horns and on the
withers and on each side of the tail, to
clean out the dirt which has accumulated.
The cattle cannot reach these places them
selveshence they should often be
cleaned. -The itching must be almost in
tolerable and if the cattle could speak
after a good currying and sponging there
would be loud-spoken tnanks.
When calves are three weeks old they
will eat a little meal. We begin with a
handful stirred into their milk. At the
end of the week they may be given two
handfuls, and when six weeks old they
will eat a quart and do with less milk.
Sweet milk is costly feed to give to
calves. Veal calves are not worth at
tending this spring as there is no sale.
They used to bring $10 when four weeks
old, and giadually dropped down to $4
and $5. This year, no demand at- *any
pi ice. Cows keep up in price as
high as they have been tor several years.
This is one oi the anomalies in trade,
which it is hard to understand. It must
be that the low price of gram is causing
farmers to increase their dairies. This
is a mistake often made to rush from
one thing to another. Better stick to one
trade. A few years aero almost everyone
went into hops and after a considerable
outlay were glad to hop out. vs
Deodorisers,A pai) of clear*water in a
newly-painted room will remove the
sickening odor of paint. Coffee pounded
in a moitar and roasted in an iion plate,
sugar burhed on hot coals, and vinegar
boiled with myrrh and sprinkled on the
floor and furniture of a sick-room, are ex
cellent deodorizers. 'fejO/"'***
The Uses of the Lemon.- A piece' of
lemon bound upon a corn will relieve it
in a day or so' It should be lenewed
night and morning. The free use of lemon
juice and sugar will always relieve a cough.
A lemen eaten before breakfast^very day
for a week or two will entireM prevent
that feeling of lassitude pefculitr to the
to tne approach of spring. Pefhaps it&
most valuable property is its| absolute
power of defecting any* of the injurious
and even dangerous ingredients entering
into the composition of so very many of
the cosmetics and face powders in the
market. Every lady should subject her
toilet powder to this test. Place^a tea
spoontul of the suspested powder in a glass
add the juice of a lemon. If effervescence
takes place it is an infallible proof that the
powder is dangerous, and its use should be
avoided,|as it will ultimately injure the
skin anadestioyjhfibeaiity of the com
plexion.^ f$^***f*

**t*r* Attics and l^el.aM.
ltusTa good plan for a, hou .ekeeper to
make a weekly vilit to every1
part of her
dwelling from garre*t to cellar." The
attic is often the repository of articles
of little value, such as worn-out garments,
beding, etc. If such articles must be
kept they: can be neatly packedtin drawers
or b6xe$, ..wrapping woolens" of any value
in linen or {hick brown paper to protect
tuem from moths. Attics %ihd. cellars*
should be sp arranged that they can]be
perf ectF^ ventilated." To some" persons
the thought of Spiti ng the- cellar is
anything but pleasant, $f because,

us this part of our house requires closer
attention.
Vegetables must be examined, and
those showing signs of decay, removed.

From the Sutro (Nev Independent.
The heat in the Sutro Tunnel for sev
eral thousand feet back from the face is
very considerable, ranging fiom 95 to 100
degtees Fahrenheit and feels all the hot
ter for being partly depuved of exygen.
At the face where the men are at work,
two stieams of fresh air, geneiated at
shaft No. 2, two miles away, and 1,045
feet above the tunnel, are constantly dis
chargedone from the blower, the other
from the compressorpipe and though the
air at that point is 108 degrees Fahren
heit, it is quite coniforta'ble.
One switch-mule is employed on each
shift, which is used for bringing a car at
a time from the switcha thousand ieet
backto the face of the headei it is
then taken back with the loaded car to
bring othei empty ones forwaid, in which
manner trains of fifteen oi twenty cars
aie made up. This, mule fiom the time
it is unhitched from the empty cars, and
while it is waiting to be hitched up to
the one being loaded, manages to put its
nose up to the air-pipe, and keeps mov
jng its head up and down, in older to get
all the ah possible in the fevv minutes
allowed if."
One day last week a man iifcha'rge ot
the switch-mule was seen coming out of
the tunnel,^in the middle of the 'shaft,
and on inquiry why he made his appear
ance ai4his^unusual hour, he said he had
coinjp Out after .another jmule to do the
switching, for his regur|t,r switch! mule
had become rebellious ana utteily refused
to do any duty. He declared the mule
was standing in fiont of the airrpipe, near
the face, and no amount of coaxing,
whipping or pulling could induce it to
leave, and. he was compelled to start out
after another mule, in ord.er to. permit
the work to proceed. *t
After a few hours, by sheer dint of
force, the refractory mule was. biought
out, ha^ a dezen men being required to
pull and push it along. It has since been
put to work otitsi-le, for it would be use
less to put it at switching any more, for
it would repeat the same performance at
each shaft. -vk i/t
The intelligence of mules is displayed
in a wonderful-degree when used under
ground, and in dangerous places. They
gradually learn to understand every com
mand the driver gives them, and in the
header when the signal fire is given,
they instantly wheel around, with their
backs toward the blast. One day a mule
neglected to wheel quite around, but
stood at right angles wittiNhe tunnel, and
tnough* over 400 feet from the face, a
rock four inches in diameter struck it in
|oe side, producing an ugly wound,
I^bnx,which Hie intestines protruded. He

^eas^n horses cannot ~be used under-

that manner.
The switch mules, when the men are
eating, go from man to num begging for
something to eat, and they will eat cook
ed meat, pies, drink cofTee in fact, any
thing the men have. Some of the mules
when the men arc not looking, are in the
habit of upsetting the men's lunch pails
and helping themselves. They have also
taken to drinking ice water, and are not
satisfied except they get their regular al
lowance.
The mules which pull the rock-trains
are driven three 6r four tandem, each
having a torch upon its head, which
bobs up and down as-
they move along,
and they present a very novel appearance
as seen from a distance in the darkness.
All the mules in the tunnel woik eight
hour shifts, the same as the men. Not
withstanding this short duty, they
rapidly wear out, a it is a pity to see
them panting and blowing in the con
fined air, with perspiratioe streaming
from them.
The mules have a cloth fastened to
their bridles, which is to put over one
eye befoie they emerge into daylight.
The cloth is removed* as they enter the
tunnel on the return trip. The object is
to have them reserve one good eye, ex
posed to daylight, is incapable of seeing
anything for some time after entering
darkness. Whenever it is neglected to
bandage and eve on the outside, the mule
staggers and stumbles about in the dark
ness, and refuses to go ahead.
The mules of course, all have their
names, and Jane, Nell, Fan, Tom. Bill,
Jack, Frank, are sure to be amongst the
lot One mule has been facetiously
christened Susan B. Anthony. They are
great favorites with the miners, especially
when underground, and they answer the
call of their names, like pet dogs and
strange to say in that heated atmosphere,
they soon lose their proverbial tendency
for kicking. The oriver generally stands
on a small platform in the rear of the
first car, and since he could not reach the
mules, dnyen in tandem, with a whip, he
shies smaU stones with the greatest dex
terity, of which he has a good supply be
foie him.
Two trains generally follow, one be
hind the other, for should an accident
happen from caves, breaking of wheels,
or of cars getting off the track, one diiver
assists the other in overcoming the diffi
culty.
The most durable mules are those witti
short legs, large bodies, compactly built,
and weighing about 900 pounds.
There are altogether about thiity mules
employed in the Sutro Tunnel, though a
greater number is kept on hand.
Sam's Birthday,
On the nineteenth day of last month,
Sam could and would have testified, from
information and belief, that he v*as
"eight yeahs ol, swine on nine i"1
the morning of the twentienth. that inter
esting infant of color was infoimed by
his mother that lie was ''nine yeahs ol',
gwine on ten."
"Hoo ee!'' he cried, "whut a powTul
while I mus'ha' slep'! Or else I giows
wus an* dat ar Jonus's gourd you tol' me
'bout, whut wuz only a teenchy leetle
simblin at night, and got big as de hen
house afore mornin' early sun-up. Him'
hey! look heah, mammy, is I skipped
any Christrnases?"
"No, chile," replied bis mother "you
ain't skipped nufiin. Dis is yo' buff-day
de 'fects ob which is, dat it's des so many
yeahs sence yon wuz fust borned. I don't
know how't'll be, Sam,folks is sim'iar
to de cocoa-giass, whut grows up mighty
peit, tell 'long come somebody wid a hoe
to slosh it down,but et you libs long
enough, an' nufiin happens, you'll keep
on habbin a buff-day ebry yeah wunst a
yeah till you dies. An' ebry time you
has one, son, you'll be one yeah older."'
Fine way to git giay-headed," said
Sam
At this moment a mighty crash re
sounded from the kitchen down stairs,
and Aunt Philis descended the stej.&
with gieat precipitation. Then Sam
heaid her shouting angrily
You, Bose! Oh, you oettah git. you
mean ole no-'count rascal! I do 'spise a
houn'-dog!'
Sam went on with his toilet, musing,
the while, upon the piobabihty of his
ever getting to be as old as Uncle
Afri-
kin Tommy," who was the patnarch
of the plantation, and popularly supposed
to be cluss onto two hundred years of
age and who was wont to aver that
when lie ailived in that pait of the coun
try, when he was a boy, the squirrels all
had two tails apiece, and the Mississippi
River vcas such a small stieam the people
budged it, on occasion, with a fence-rail.
Thus meditating upon the glorious pos
sibilities of his iuture, Sam got ready for
breakfast, and went down. It was not
until he had absoi bed an enormous quan
tity fried pickled pork and hot corn
cakes, and finally with leluctance ceased:
to eat, that his mother told him what
had caused the-noi^e a little while before,
how old Bose, the fox-hound, had with
felonious intent come into the kitchen,
and surieptitiou-sly supped up the
chicken-soup that had been prepared for
Sams Tjirthday bieakfast and farther,
how the said delinquent had added in
sult to injury, by contemptoasly smash
ing the bowl that he had emptied.
Sam,however, was too true a philosopher
to cry long over spilt milkor soup. He
reflected mat the breakfast he had just
taken would prevent his eating any soup,
even if he had it. "I isn't mjy-rubber,"
said he to himself, with which beautiful
and happy thought his frown was super
seded by a smile, the smile developed
into his normal grin, and be began to
chant an appropriate stanza from one of.
his favorite lvrics:
"O-o-o-old Uncle John!.
A
A-a-a-aunt Sally Goodin! ?j ^S*'
When you got enough eorn-o*read"!^*i
I's des as good as puddin.'."
The excellent Aunt Philhs ^as much
affected.by this saint like conduct on the
})art of hereon. She sighed fearing that
the boy was to good to live.
'jNemmind, Sam," said she "you need
n't tote no wood to-day, orfotch no water,
or dq nufiin. Go down to de quarters,
an' git Pumble to play wid you."
Pumble was a boy who in age and
tastes qorresponded closely, with Sam, as
he did in complexion. His real name, at
full length, was Pumulechook,he hav-
ing been so christened at the instance of
Mahs'r George, in honor ot the immortal
corn-and-seedsman. Off went Sam in
search of this boy, and he found him at
the back of the maternal mansion, split
ting up pine-knots for kindlings. Sam
approached him with a very slow digni
fied step, and a look of commiseration.
"Hey, nigger!" said Sam, "dat's all
you fit for, is to work. Why don't you
be a gemman like me. whut ain't a-gwinc
to do a licko' work dis whole day?"
"Done runned away, is you?" answered
Pumble.
"Well, I'll come 'round dis ebenin,
when de ole ooman gibs you a dose ob
hickory-tea.''i
"Dat 11 do, boy said Sam. "Let you
know dis is my buff-day, an' I won^woik
tor nobody, on my buff-day. Go ax yo'
mammy kin you come up an' play wid
mc tell her my mammy sent word for
you to come."
Pumble dropped the hatchet, stared
ecstatically, and ran in to obtain the
desired permission. It was granted.
Then this dialogue occurred:
"Be a good chile!"
"Yes'm."
"Don't forgit vo' manners!"
"Nome."
'Member vou's my son!"
tlYes'm."*
but on
"Don'r you git into no mischuf!"
"Nome/' "Ef you dose, I'll w'ar you out, sah
Now, go 'long!"
The boys trotted merrily away together.
But they had not gone fifty rods before
they heard Pumble's mother calling hitu.
They stooped to listen.
"Takekeer- ob yoyclones!"
she shout-
ed, and then went back into ner house.
Under a great pecan-tree, on the lawn
befoie the "big house,'" Sam and Pumble
sat down to consider and consult, or, as
they expressed it, "to study up what us
gwine to do."
Shill I tell a story?" asked Pumble.
Does you know a good one?" inquir
ed Sam.
Dis story's gwine to bp a new one,"
said Pumble, beakase I'll make it up as
I go 'long.'
"Tell ahead," said Sam.
"Wunst apon a time?" interrepted
Sam.
Shut up! Wunst apon a time. Dey
wuz a man. An' dis heah man lighted
up he pipe, an' started out on de big
road. An' he went walkin' along.
Right stret along. An' walkin' along,
an' walkm' along, art walkin' along. An'
xoalkirC along An' walkin' along, an'
walKin' along
Dat man wuz gwine all de way, wuz
n't he?' interjected the listener.
He had n't got no way, hardly, yit,'
said Pumble, "b ut he kep' a-walkin
along. An' walkin' anlong, an' walkin
along, an' walkin' along, an' walkin
along an' walkin' along, an' walkin
along
"Stop dat walkin' now," said Sam,
and tell whut he done when fie got froo
walkin'."
"He come to de place he wuz a-gwine
to," said Pumble.
"Did he, sho' enough?"' exclaimed Sam
"I uz kinder sseered hevudn't neber

"De nex' ing he done," said Pumble,
impiessively, "wuz to turn right 'jound
an' go back -vvhar he come from. An' dat's
all'"
As was his invariable custom when
deeply impiessed, Sam began to sing,
Pumble joining in:
"Jaj-bird a-settm

Stephen wink at him
Stephen pint de gun,
Pull on de trigger,

All About a Bncjv.
To the Editor of the New York Evening Post
A well-known citizen living not many
blocks fiom Union Square relates an in
cident somewhat in this wise:
One blight morning in the month of
November, some years ago, I was pre
paring to go dow% town, when the ser
vant informed me that a man was waiting
at the fiont door to see me. "Tell him
I'll be down in a moment,"' said I. On
going to the door a man ot tall stature
and lobust appearance, calling me by
name, requested assistance, saying that
he had a large family, a wife in delicate
health, and no means to procure food for
them. "You appeal to be strong and
healthy why don't you woik?" asked I.
"Simply, sir. for the reason that I cannot
procure work."
Not having work to give him, I
thought I would test the sinceirty ot his
intentions. If I give yon work, what
pay do you want?" Anything, sir, you
choose to give me, so long as I can ob
tain means for my suffering family."
"Very well," said I, I will give you 23
cents an hour if you will carry a brick
on your arm around the block: for five
hours without stopping." Thank you,
sir I will do it." After hunting a while
I found a biick, placed it on the man's
arm, startel him on his walk, and then
went down to my business.
Not having the least faith in the man's
promise, 1 thought but little more of it,
yet as I knew I should be back within
five hours I determined t$ see if he per
formed his work. My business kept me
away rather later than I expected, so I had
to forego my usual walk home, and took a
Fourth avenue car tc be back within the
five hours.
As I approached the corner of the street
where I reside I found a great crowd of
persons gatheredtwo fire engines, a
hose-cart, and a hodk^and-ladder truck.
Upon inquiring where the fire was, I was
informed that it was a false alarm, and
that what brought the people together
and occasioned the/ agitation was the
spectacle of a tall man carrying a brick on
his arm aiound the block tor nearly five
hours. The neighbdrs were looking at him
form the windows and the doors as he
passed along some thought he was crazy,
but when spoken to his answer was: "Do
not stop me it's all right." As he inter
fered with no one, he was allowed to walk
on undisturbed. "Where is the man how?"
I asked. "There, you can see him at the
other end of the block, walking with his
head down," was the answer.
He was just about turning the corner,
and I waited till he had performed the
circuit, then, taking him quietly by the
arm, I marched him ti my house, follow
ed by a lot of boys. In the meantime,the
firemen, engines, and hose-cart rattled
off. The man was thorougnly tired out
when I took him into my hall and seated
him on a chair, while my servant went
for a little wine and something to eat. I
paid him foithwith a dollar and a half.
He informed me that, while making one
of his turns, a lady came out of a house
and inquired why he was carrving that
brick, and on his giviag her the reasons
he received a dollar. The object soon
became known, for as he passed the
houses small sums were given to him by
different persons, and he was well satis
fied with his day's work. "But," said he
what shall I do to-morrow?",
"Why," I replied, go early in the
morning to the houses fiom which you
received the money and ask for work, and
no doubt you will find some one who will
put you in the way of getting it: then re
port to me." The following afternoon he
informed me that he had been sent to a
German, who kept a pork establishment
in Third avenue, and who wanted a clerk
to keep his books. He was to get $5 a
week if his work proved satisfatory, and
his duties began on the following dav.
Before leaving me he asked for the brick
which had brought him such good luck,
and I gave it toliim. Within the year I
ascertained that the man had been "trans
ferred to a larger establishment of the
same kind, with a salary of $1,000.
Three or four years after this I was rid
ing in a strepf-car, when a well-dressed
man accosted me with a smile, and asked
me if I knew him. Seeing me hesitate,
he said- "Don't you recollect the man
who carried the brick?"
He then informed me that he was doing
a prosperous business on his on account,
had laid up money, and expected soon to
build himself a house up town.
What became of the brick?"' I in
quired.
That brick, sir, has always occupied
a place on our mantelpiece, and we value
it as the.most preoious of our little pos
sessions.* It has made our fortune."
I Was Alive.
N
He was rather an uncouth-looking in
dividual, and as, he sauntered into the
store the crowd sitting on the barrels
winked at each other, and made remarks
about his person.
Where did it come from?" asked one,
pointing at him.
Somebody left the door open' and it
blew in," said another.
I don't think it's alive," said a thirds
Touch it and see," remarked a fourth.
"Yes, its a mansee it move?"' que
ried the first. All hands laughed boister
ously.
I'm a poor man, and I don't want to
have any trouble with anybody. I'm a
Chnstian, and don't believe in turmoil
and strife, and can't participate in it. I
pray you, worldly-minded people, that
you will allow me to depart in peace,"
said the new arrival.
One of the crowd, more daring than the
rest, hammeied the man's hat down over
his eyes, and another dabbed his nose
full of molasses from a bairel standing
Then the poor Christian took a small
volume fiom his pocket, and began read
ing the Scripturers in a drawling, sing
song tone.
While he was engaged at this, the
crowd played all soits of tricks on him
One put some eggs in his pocket, and an
other mashed them. Then the biggest
man in the house poured some oil on his
hat and lighted it. Then the clerk hit him
under the nose with a codfish. Then that
man quietly put the little volume in hia
coat-tail pocket, and the clerk went head
first into the molasses barrel. When the
biggest man in the house picked himself
from under the countei, it wa next to an
