David C. I'aync is not only a good
constable, but also a first-class horse
jockey, and very seldom ever lets
anyone get the bestof him in any ex
change for liorso flesh. A few days
ago we learn he made an exceptional
good trade, and brought home what
ho called a "spanking good boss."
The next day Dave concluded he
would tcfjf, the working qualities of
his new horse. He took him to the
field, and when there the nnimnl pos
itively declined lo pcifoim and finally
made a vicious plunge at David, so
tint he let the horse go and ran for
the nearest fence, the spanking horse
after him. lie reached a ten-rail
fence which lie cleared nt one leap
out of the horse's reach. His son,
Clarence, a young man came to the
rescue: he entered the field and the
boss dashed for him and another race
took place, the young man to the
front for the nearest point to the
fence. In the mean time, Frank liar
man, a near neigiibor, came along.
He proposed to bring that boss to
time, and into the field he goes. A
minute later Frank was scon running
like a blue streak on a bee line to
wards tlio house, and tlio boss, with
head and tail erect, clo3o in his rear.
Frank cleared the fence and so did
the boss, a few hounds moro and
Frank landed in the house jiiat in
time to close the door on the boss.
In the meanwhile Dave and Clarence
were cut off from the house, so they
cacli took to a tree in tho yard. The
boss viewed matters a moment, and
looking somewhat disgusted, went to
bis st?.ll in the stable as gentle and
docile as a lamb as if nothing had oc
curred. Dave now talks like adver
tising for a scientific horse trainer.
Tlio Klston correspondent of the
Tribune speaks of a bung llylug out
of a cider barrel while 'being drove
into town, creating unite a sensation,
and which raised Adam instead of

years, and was ina.le lo.bung old

"Buy thcIBcst and Breed Rctler,"
is the heading lo an editorial in the
Jersey Bulletin. It is cxiomatic and
good enough for a motto, without
comment. The man who obeys tho
injunction is on the great highway of
progress and cannot fail to succeed.
Every animal needs plenty of

Put white butter and yellow butter

Tho mild weather is of advantage
to the farmer in reducing the amount
of food necessary for stock. Young
stock should thrive and grow and
ndult animals should fatten very
readily. The regularity of fcading
and care of tho stock should not,
however, be in any manner neglect
ed. It i'i more important to mulch the
strawberry bed in a mild winter sea
son than during the seyerc cold
weather, as the ground is subject to
more frequent freezing than thawing.
A mulch docs not keep plants warm,
but assists in keeping them tit an even
temperature, rendering them less
liable to changes.
Lime has the advantage of being
beneficial nt all seasons, thonjjh il
effects in tho soil may not be imme
diate. It never injures land if prop
erly npplicd, and though its results
may bo unsatisfactory at first, yet tho
effects are lasting, Ihe lime supplied
this year proving beneficial in the fu
ture . Lime is cheap and should be
used freely.
The saving of the various substan
ces Hint are supposed to possess no
value, by adding them to the manure
heap, amounts to a large item in the
course of a year. There is nothing
grown on the farm, cither by seeding
for the crop or voluntary growth of
weeds, that will not contribute some
thing to tho fertility of the soil if the
materials are appropriated to the pur
poses for whicli they are adapted.
Even weeds can be made useful iu
