I will be still to-day and rest;
" I' will be sJiilW lk life 'dWft
I am so tired that it is.jbest
Neither my, hancls nor eyej to
I am'sbtired itiis ni iise, ' !
My will cannot' my need obey
0 Care. I ask . few.hours' truce,
I pray thee let me rest to-day.
And so, shut np in restful gloom,
I let my, hands drop listlessly 9
WithirTniv dim andiilent room
I would not move,lr iiear,' or see,
Oblivion dropped on me her balm.
I fell on slumber deep and sweet, (va
And when I woke was strong and calm,
And full of rest from head to feet.
So, toiler in life's weary ways,
Pity thyself, for thou must tire 5
Both body, mind and heart have days
They cannot answer their desire.
Birds in all seasons do not sing,
Flowers have their time to bloom and
There is not any living thing
Can answer to a ceaseless calL
1 Sometimes, tired head, seek slumber
Tired hands, no burden try to lift;
Tired heart, thy watch let others keep,
Pity thyself and let life drift.
A few hours' rest perchance may bring
Relief from weariness and pain ;
And thou from listless languors spring,
And gladly lift thy work again.

Chop six apples fine, grate six

washed carefully and floured; mix
all well together with six ounces of

Beat up three or four eggs with
one or two tablespoonfuls of grated
Parmesan cheese, and pepper and
salt to taste. Put a piece of butter
the size of an egg into a frying pan ;
as soon as it is melted pour in the
omelet mixture, and, holding the
handle of the pan with one hand,
stir the omelet with the other by
means of a spoon. The moment it
begins. t6. Jset, cease, stirring, but
keep on shaking for a minute or so;
then with the spoon double up the
omelet and keep shaking the pan
until the under side of the omelet
has become of a golden color. Turn
it out on a hot dish and serve, with
plenty of grated Parmesan cheese
strewn over it.
A pickle which will keep a few
weeks, and which is very appetizing
and will help to save the other more
expensive, t'pibkles, i is imade, of 'red
cabbage. Choose firm heads, cut
into quarters, and after removing
the stalk cut the cabbage across
the heads into very thin slices;
spread it upon large platters, scatter
salt with a liberal hand oyer it. The
next day drain through a colander.
Then put the cabbage into a jar
and pour vinegar heated to the boil

pepper, and if you ehboso, a - little
cayenne pepper or curry powder or
ginger may be put into the vinegar
and heated with it.
It is stated that experiments have,
been made in keeping fruit in jars
covered --.only? with cotton batting,
and at" the, end of two yers the
fruit wassound The fbUowitig
directions are given -for the process ;
Use crocks, stone butter jars, or any
convenient dish. Prepare and cook
the fruit precisely as for canning
in glass jars; fill your dishes with

faction is, caused by r the? invisible
creatures irf the? air. w. Cooking thb'
iruit expels all these, and as they
cannot pass through the cotton bat

keep an indefinite period. It will be
remembered that Tyndall has proved
that .the atmospheric germs cannot
pass through a layer, of cotton.-

The Pkogeessive Farmer is a live, and as its name .indicates,, a progressive
paper, devoted to the, interests of the farmers of North Carolina, and will be tilled
each vveek with twenty-five columns of reading, matter, -editorial, qorrespondence
from leading farmers and others, farm notes for the farmer, household receipts tor
for the housekeeper, stories for ; young and old, miscellaneous matter, mirth, wit,
fcc, for all. ' ' " ' ' , ' . . ' , ." ",
It will be kept up to the full standard of modern agricultural journalism.
We propose to make it a paper that North Carolina farmers may not only read
with profit, but one of which they may be proud.; - . i .. . . , '
We hope in the near future to see it become a weekly visitor in the households
of thousands of farmers. , . , . , . , : . , ,
In this work we have the sympathies and good wishes of many tnends, who
send us cheering words arid write us encouraging letters, all of which we appre-
CiaVe want our friends to help us extend the circulation of this paper. We do
not expect nor ask them to give us their time for nothing, and accordingly we
offer as compensation for the service that may be rendered us in securing clubs o
subscribers for one year, the following ,' ' f
embracing articles of real value to the farmer, to the farmer's wife, to the boy and
to the girl. . .
There is no chance work, no prize lottery business, in this, and no Cheap John
goods are ottered.
i , Erery, one who workffor us is sui-e of getting either one of the premiums offered,
'and every thing offered is guaranteed by us and by the responsible parties who sup
ply them as being up to the standard and of full value as represented. '
The premiums will be securely packed, addressed to the getters up of clubs and
placed on the cars at Winston free of cost.
Clubs of over sixteen may be divided between two or more post offices, but clubs
of sixteen or under must be addressed to one post office.
The otter of this premium list will hold good for three months, that is to the first
of June next. Now here is a chance for active men, good women, boys and girls,
to help us extend the circulation of The Progressive Farmer, get a substantial
and valuable premium, and benefit themselves.
The receipi of lists for clubs will be duly acknowledged in our columns from
week to week ; . , . , ,
