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

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. E., Monroe, Ct.

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. Matteson in Country
Gentlemen.
" 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. Each
may start with equals condition of flesh
and health, but the one dropped in win-

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

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

clusive diet of slops and swill, can a hog
be reared into a healthy specimen of
good pork, or resist tbe attacks of dis
ease, should disease germs be conveyed
to it by winds, by Logs, poultry, cats or
rats, by water, or by contact with other
hogs that are diseased.
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
