LAST WEES, .- BIO 8600 Around, the Fireside. EN ROUTE TOR THE WHITE MOUN TAINS. The journey from Boston is made via the "Eastern Shore Road," which affords many pleasant glimpses of the ocean and maritime towns. We pass Lynn.the city of shoes, surrounded by thrifty melon catches ou the outskirts, balem is approached with an involuntary sbud' der as we recall the tragic events or 1C92. Gallow's Hill la a conspicuous eminence overlooking the city and sur rounding Bhore. Whether the fathers who laid out Marblehead intended to perpetrate a standing joke cannot now he determined. The peculiar head shaped rocks irregularly placed, evident ly were designed by nature to be left to themselves. They simply defy all at temDts to lav out a village with a street that shall intersect another at right an glc. Head shaped rocks, houses, gar dens, cattle trying to find a livmg, are intermixed in a unique and amusing jumble. Many queer houses are still standing that were built before the Revo lution. The old historic town of ew buryport is built on an abrupt declevity of the -derrimac. Portsmouth, the only seaport of New Hampshire, is almost entirely surrounded by water. It is beautiful from every point at which we see it. "Continental Island," on which is located the United States Navy Yard, is easily distinguished, as are its build ings. There are many islands in the harbor. We eaze oceanward hoping to catch the outline of the Isle of Shoals, longing especially for one bit of the blue ppledore, the picturesque house, of Ce lia Thaxter, who interprets the bong or the Sea as if she were the daughter of Oceania. We cross the Piscataqua and take a flvinc look at Kittery, where was planted the FIRST PERMANENT COLONY IN MAINE in 1U24. From tnis point, we circie around and fly northward through New Hampshire. From Rochester onward the change in the character of the eoun try becomes apparent. Steadily we are ascending the plateau from which the White Mountains rise. The farms ap pear sickly, the corn short and ears small, the hay yield 13 less than half that of Connecticut to the acre. At Milton we reach the foot hills, which re semble the Berkshires in the Western nart of Massachusetts. Small hut-like houses rest at the foot of the bills. Lit tie graveyards seem to be in the very back yard3 a3 if, hopeless of a future, the villages are tenderly protecting the oast. The mountain sides are ciothed with junipers and ferns. How the coun try rolls as we speed on. Two starved looking cows gaze at us from a table rock. The traveler beside us recalls the sheep and goats he has seen on the Scotch HighlaLds, and in the bwiss mountains, and bewails the fact that while the Switzer is thrifty and content ed in bis craggy chalet, and gets his but ter, cheese and fresh meat from his flock fed on the patches of Alpine verdure, the New Hampshire farmer has settled down in a wasting despair. It seems as if the introduction of sheep and goats would bring in a new hope and a paying industry. From North Wakefield, where is a beautiful island-gemmed lake, encir cled by mountains, the train stops at all the little desert places to accommodate the summer boarders. The stations are bricht with happy life, coaches four-in hand, and less pretentious carriages come with eav parties to welcome the newly arrived guests. So clear, 80 cool, so neaceful. the weaitn 01 tne cities ought to "turn poverty out," and indeed the further we penetrate into the moua- tains, we see evidence that this is being done. THE NATURAL PRODUCT of the mountains is also utilized, as the stretches of cord wood, railroad ties, lumber mills, spool factories, shingles, stacks of bark ready for the tanneries and mountains of saw dust testily, There is wealth in the forest. At North Ossipee we see the original of the country store, which spices the stories that detail New England life. It la a tiny cuue, iuu&iug as 11 uau uccu rolled in weak bluing ; pale green shut ters guard the windows. We peer with in at the slender stock and are sure there is "no ribbon, no stationery, not even an onion" there. We pass Bear Camp wa ter, where Whittier locates a tender, idyllic romance. It Is overshadowed by Chocorua, a peerless mountain, setting in individual splendor. The clearness of the streams has often been described, but they must be seen to be understood The intervals of the Saco and tributary streams are suggestive of Westmoreland, says our traveled friend. The pebbled bottoms, the stretches of gleaming yel low, exposed sand, the encircling of the stream as clear and limpid as if just dis tilled from the dews of heaven present a picture which will ever remain on "mem ory's wall." At North Conway our friends, the three Misses F., leave us with many regrets, to take a leisurely tour through the moun tains. They hand us their cards with a pleasant "au revoir," jocosely assuring us we will remember them as "ladies in waiting." Our conductor takes us to the rear of the car that we may be aware of the sensation In passing over the cele brated Tranklestein trestle bridge that spans Willey brook In the notch. It is one of the most beautiful mountain passes in the world. Between one and two hundred feet beneath us Is the brook. . THE BRIDGE lg as light and as graceful as if spun from a web, and from tbe botel it Is easily im agined to be the work of some giant spi der. It Is twilight when we reach the Crawford House. We cast a look back ward at tbe deep, glorious Notch, and tbe Imposing mountains, darkening In tbe gloaming, when of a sudden, the botel door opens and we are ushered out of the cloud that is settling over us into a vision of fairy like beauty. We enter a spacious room trimmed in flowing tracery of green and brilliantly lighted. A motto over the reception hall door bids us "welcome." From the farthest parlor come strains ol softest music, ladies and gentlemen in evening dress are pro menading or dancing, distinguished looking elderly people join in the tempt ing walk through the spacious parlors. The social atmosphere is choice and le- fined. We eDjoy a supper fit for the gods; berries, so delicious, they seemed bathed in mountain dew and filled with some mysterious nectar, creamy butter, water, superlatively the best. We en joyed an evening promenade on the piazza becoming acquainted with the Hon and Mrs M. of Pennavlvania and MrandMrs B.of Providence,membersof our party. In front of us were the dark slopes ofMt Pleasant. The murmur of mountain cascades filled the air with soft est Bound. We waited for the forthcom ing of the belated moon which shed a ten der radiance through the cloud that en veloped us. We walked as in a dream whose awaking would not be realized un til therisingof the morrow's sun. 'Hen rietta Smith Munson. A PILGRIMAGE TO SARATOGA Dear Bee: According to promise, I will endeavor to give. an account of our excursion to Saratoga, to attend the 81st conclave of the- Knights Templar. It was fortunately a perfect day, the pour ing rain of the day before having settled the dust and cleared up the atmosphere, and it was just warm enough to be pleas ant. We started at 9.30 a. m. on a special train mad up of 16 cars all packed full. The St George Commandery and two fine bands, the remainder every one who war ted to go. As seen through a car window, the country is rather flat but pretty. The fields are greener since the rain, but corn is small and spindling. A gentleman called my attention to an immense apple orchard, trees all of same size and quite closely set ; I thought it had an odd look at first but discovered that the trees were loaded with red apples. We saw canal boats with great loadl of lumber drawn Dy patient mules apparently with no driver. We arrived at Saratoga about 10.30 a m., and marched in tne wake or the crowd to the United States hotel, where the commandery was quartered. Then we scattered, three of us going to the park, tasting of the springs etc., until noon, when one of our party, having eat en nothing for breakfast, became too faint to proceed without something to eat, and as the Ln'ted States' dinner would not be served till at leaf-t 1 30, we hunted up a hotel where dinner was to be at 12. On stating we belonged to the commandery our dinner tickets were only 75 cents a piece, and we were ushered in to the dining room the very flr9t ones were served first and were nearly through before the rest had fairly commenced, I should think as much as six, perhaps more, courses. At 1 o'clock we stepped nto a Pullman double decker or two story electric car, all plate glass win dows, opening at the sides instead of the end, and we had a delightful trip to Sar atoga lake and back. At 3 o'clock we took seats on the piazza of the United States to view the procession, which did not really start till 4 30. I omitted to state that Saratoga was in gala dress very beautifully decorated every wh re I never saw so much bunting of every de scription, with flags of all nations. The Masonic Temple, nearly opposite the United States, was especially fine ; in the center was a large banner with a picture of a Crusader on horseback. But what seemed very strange and noticeable was to see the Odd Fellows building, next to the Temple, with no decoration whatev er on it, the only one I saw without flag ; even the stages had flags and ban ners with "Welcome, knights," on. After what seemed an interminable hour, band after band formed in the ho tel and marched out, down and around in to some other street to form into line, with others from different hotels. The Sara toga commandery were drawn up in line near the curb stones, till the chiefs had gone past, a number on horseback, and one four horse and several two horse carriages. Twenty-one commanderies were in line, each with a band ; three di visions, each headed by their commander on horseback. It was a splendid sight They were over half an hour passing the United States. The commandery march ed some distance in the form of a cross After the parade everybody scattered in I an directions, visiting the shops for sou J venirs, etc. A grand ball was held at the convention hall, and ladies in exquisite costumes were flitting about in the grand parlors of the United States, and passing out to the carriages in waiting. A band of music played in the court yard back of the United States, where we had supper, and it seemed rather fanny but the first course on the bill of fare was baked apples, and stewed i runes at tbe last, but of course there were all sorts of nice things, stewed oysters, meats, sal ads, etc. After supper a string band witn cornet ana -piano, rendered some yery line music in one of the parlors. Everything must come to an end,- and so must our delightful day, and it was with reluctance we left the brilliant scene for the depot at 10 p. m. There was such a throng of people that we had to walk through at least a dozen cars before rind ing a seat. There were 2G cars in there turn train. We arrived at S. at 11.30 and there being no electric cars at that hour. we were obliged to walk nearly a mile to the house up grade, every one of the par ty completely tired out but not regret ting the fatigue.

A Gentleman Who formerly resided In Connecticut, but who now resides 111 Honolulu, writes: "For 20 years past, my wife and 1 have used Ayei-'s 'Hair .Vigor, and we 'aHtiinitetoittliedark ' hair which she and I now have, while hun dreds ofour acquaint ances, ten or a dozen years yomigerthau we, are ell her gray-headed, white, or bald.

"In 18G8, my affianced Wfis nearly bald, and the hair kept fall ing out every day. I I n d u ced her to use Ayer'a Hair Vljror, and very soon, it not only checked any further 4oss of hair, but produced an entirely new growth, which has remained luxuriant and glossy to this day.

AYER'S R VIGOR Live Farm Topics WINTER AND SUMMER DAIRYING During the last month I have found in my papers oftener than almost anything else articles in regard to whether the dairy cow should come fresn in milk in the fall or sprine, or in other words which is the more profitable, the eo- called winter dairyme or tbe more commonly practical way of having the cows fresh in spring and so having your flush of milk in the summer months. iow these questions, while ot great im portance to the dairyman, are such that it would be impossible to answer them affirmatively in either case ; in fact it is like the larger number of matters per taining- to the dairy industry ; circum stances must govern and decide which of the two is the more profitable. There are special rules', such as clean liness, kindness and tegular ky, that can be laid down and no dairyman will ever make a mistake in following them to the letter. But location, help and ability to handle a dairy have very much to do in deciding for a dairy which winter or summer dairying- shall be the most profitable. All through the country are dairymen who live far back from rail roads and of course can not ship milk and many of them are a long way from a creamery and have not suitable barns or dairy apparatus to handle milk in winter, and to get these things would be a great expense. Besides, there are a large number who must have help in the summer months to get their crops iu and harvested, but who do not need or keep any help except during f om five to eight months, and can manage their farms alone through the winter months. Now tbey must have this ex tra help in the summer months, but do not need it in winter unless tbey have a large amount of milking to do, and can save in the matter of wages, board, etc., enough to balance up quite a large difference in price of butter or milk that the winter dairyman is supposed te have in excess of the summer dairyman. But this matter of difference of price of butter at least in a great measure is a mistake ; and there are all through the dairy sections scores, yes, hundreds, of dairymen who are, and have been year after year, making a class of butter that, although made from June to November, will go into tne market in January or February and sell for the same price that butter fresh made at that time brings. Now this is not simply anas sertion, for the thing has been done year after year in the past, and it will be done winters again. I have seen one firm of butter dealers weigh off three tons of this summer butter in the month of January, at the same price they paid that same day for butter fresh made ; and the fresh-made butter was of a top q uality, as was the three tons of sum mer-made butter, and each went into the same market to sell. Now do not decide from what I have said that I am opposed to the plan of winter dairying, for I am not. There are dairymen who cannot, or at least do not, maKe a class or Dutter that can go on the market after it has two weeks age and bring a top price; and as to making butter that would keep months, and sell at any price except for grease, they never did it. Such men had better get Into winter dairying as soon as possible, or perhaps, better still, out of it entirely. , But the dairyman who has made and does make the kind Of butter I have referred to, had best carefully count costs of Increased help and extra feeding before making the change. Of course, the summer dairyman has heat drought and flies to contend with, while the winter dairyman will have cold and other things, such as extra work of feeding and care. But, say some, why discuss this matter? ; You believe , in summer dairying, and another is just as positive for the winter dairy. Well, if it were not for the fact that almost every month rinds men beginning in the dairy business, and others who, because they have not made it pay, are watching for the experiences of others, it would be folly to discusss the matter, and hearing only one side ' wouldJe i misleading And I fell safe to assert, after over forty years' work in the dairy, that the matter of when you do it, or what you have to do" with, is of very little importance com pared with how you do it, in order to attain the greatest success in dairying- more so perhaps than in almost any other industry II- S.

" IN FAV0E OF WINTER CALVES. i Calves dropped during the fall and winter will, if provided with warm quar ters, grow and thrive much better than those dropped in spring and summer. Files and heat, combined with short pas turage, are greatly against a rapid growth of any young animal. At six months of age, the summer calf is apt to be pauchy and rough. At the same age, the winter calf that has been carefully fed and cared for is sleek and fat.

This requires judicious treatmeut on the part of the feeder, however. Too much milk must not be fed while it is young. A Jersey calf cannot properly assimilate as much milk as the beef breeds. Two or three quarts at a time is sufficient. Dry hay, bright and sweet, sbuuld be kept where it can get it after it is two weeks old. Turn it over, or take out and put in fresh after a day or two, as only the very best of it will be eaten while the calf is so young. About this time it is well to begin put ting a little flaxseed jelly with the milk. Tbe quantity, beginning with a table s poonful, can be gradually increased un til a pint or more is consumed at a time. The calf will surely thrive under this food if not too much milk is given at a time. Bowel tiouble is sure to result if it is. A single time overfed will give scours, ODe of the worst diseases a calf is subject to. It is invariably caused by overfeeding. The milk fed to a young calf should be of a proper temperature each time, and that is the same as new milk. Too hot milk is binding to the bowels, and too cold is loosening. Ex tremes should be avoided. It pays to give the best of care to the calves. Look after their wants in the way of warm stables and dry bedding. Newspapers tacked to the walls inside will keep out lots of cold in case there is nothing else procurable. Building pa is ohean. and the stables can be r ' quickly made warmer by using it freely. Warmth and proper food will keep the winter calves thrifty. E. E. Rock wood in Country Gentleman. . HOW TO PREVENT HOG CH0LEEA- I will not say that no hog, under the conditions I shall name, will ever have the cholera, but I do assert that the cases of cholera and all other diseases as well will be reduced to the lowest possible minimum by such conditions. My position i3 this : . The hog, to be healthful and sound, must be surrounded by healthful conditions. This applies to all domestic animals, and it is the viola tion of this rule that entails disease upon stock and loss to the owners. - Hogs that are permitted to range at will over the commons, gathering a large part of their food indiscriminately, feed ing on wild fruits and roots, snakes, mushrooms and dead animals, perhaps a dead horse or cow itself diseased, and mingling with the hogs of the entire neighborhood, all perhaps following the same life, and perhaps more or less taint ed with disease, and receiving but little attention of any sort from their owners and none as to their sanitary conditions, are certainly more apt to- imbibe the germs of disease than hogs that are rear ed under better conditions, and excluded from such unfavorable V surroundings. True, the hog needs exercise and a variety of food, but its range should be restrict ed to its own pastures and-'eaeh herd should be isolated from all others, and only such food should be allowed it as is known to be conducive to health, and tbe formation of solid muscle and flesh and good tat.

To prevent disease is better and cheap er than to have to cure it after it once assumes a virulent form. Tbe way to prevent hog cholera is to have every farmer keep his own herd isolated from all others, and supply them with a variety of food such as is conducive to sound health. Enclose land containing some open pasture, some meadow and some up land or wooded hillsides, and adjacent to the fields of the farm, or to orchards of apple, peach, plum and other fruits; also, if possible, to groves of white oak, chestput or other nut-bearing trees. A living stream of water IS" a desideratum. Sow rye, clover and field peas, and grow such trucks as turnips, squashes, cucum bers, melons, cabbages, etc., for the hogs ; and have a large iron boiler, set upon brick-work, to cook the latter for them As often as seems to be necessary, put into their cooked mess a dose of condit ion powders, of which there are several brands in tbe market, or else copperas or quinine, or powdered red oak or dog wood bark. Look daily to their sanitary condition, and suffer them to eat no unhealthf ul food. Keep off lice by smearing, tbem often with any sort of crease. Hoes that eat greasy cooked food are never infested with vermin Change them about frequently from woodland to meadow, from meadow to orchard, and f.rom orchard to clover or grass. , Give daily a very small quantity of sound corniust enough to form bone and harden the flesh. . With these precautions, and such com- monsense conditions ' as will suggest themselves - to. every farmer, and for which he must always be on thevratcb, disease among hogs would be rare in deed. Good sanitary regulations, a variety of the natural food of the hoe and iso lation from other herds, and from sick animals of your herd, will insure exemp tion from disease, if anything i will. When cholera breaks out, it is better to kill all diseased animals, burn their bodies, and change tbe range to new ground. B. W. J., in Country Gentle man. In Fairfield County. WESTON PERSONAL CHAT.
