Van Hosac says that every woman in Chicago will have a hoopskirt by fall.) Backward, tarn backward, Oh, Time, in your flight And drag the old hoopskirt again to the light; Oh, Phyllis, come back from the echo less shore And don those old titters so stylish of yore, And we shall have room in each shop and each store For one or two women, but scarce any more. Backward, turn backward, and that very soon; Then woman shall look like the buoyant balloon, And float down the street and just one at a time, While man, oh, poor man, when he secs her will climb, Lest he should got wedged between hoopskirt and wall And never be able to move at all. Backward, turn backward, and bring the balloon; The lean one will think it a very groat boon, But ah, tho poor fat one, as round as a ball, Won't think very much of tho fashion at And short ones will sigh as they view the new fad, But the tall ones won't think that the style's to the bad. Backward, turn backward, and bring us the hoop, And also the bonnet that's built like a scoop, But long before that, it would be a good plan To thin out the women to make room for man, For streets are too narrow and flats are too small If hoopskirts should come into fashion this fall.

Method By Which Plea Vine Hay Can Be Saved Successfully. Editor Gazette: llow can peavine hay be cured so as to prevent tho loaves from falling off'/ G. W. Knkiiit, Laurel, Miss. Itake into windrows as soon as willed and bunch with forks, putting into very small piles. If weather is favorable, these small cocks will euro out bright without loss of leaves. If there is any considerable quality of poa hay to be saved, I think tho best treatment is to cut and let the hay lie as it falls from the mower until cured; then rake and haul immediately. II a rain falls it will not spoil tho hay. It will turn dark and will lose some of the leaves, but will still be good feed. Remember not to rake until ready to haul. PROF. J. W.
