He postponed his visit and returned to Cabot. CADY'S FALLS. Sam. Kimball is now the occupant of Dexter Place's riverside cottage. A family by the name of Williams has moved to the Uncle Moses Terrill house. He is an employe of C. S. Page, which vouches for his respectability, as Page employs none but strictly reliable men On the bridge question, about every man we meet with nas some new idea or scheme of his own, and it is hard to tell how the Cady's Falls vote will stand on the question of removal up stream. A new road laid out in connection with the new bridge from Cottage street, connect ing with the old road on the hill above Glasheen's, would make this part ol the town solid for removal. Byron Sabin, for several years past a resident of the city of New York, has returned an invalid to the old homestead, now occupied by Azro Durkee. His mal ady is a disease that has settled in his left leg, below the knee, and the bone is badly affected, which makes him nearly helpless. Byron has lots of pluck, and bears his affliction with fortitude, and ap pears cheerful and happy while convers ing with his old neighbors. He is a great sutterer. and it is a great relief to him to be transferred from au operating hospi tal to the tender care of a loving sister. He has the sympathy of the entire com munity, and invites company to aid him in passing away the dreary hours in cheerful conversai"n. The story of his sufferings aud how he has withstood the pain incident to hisJone confinement is a marvel. Mrs. Alraatia Watts is reported on the sick list. O. & A. H. Buck, with their army of drivers, armed with pikes, are stationed along the West Branch. L. E. Griswold, of Elmore, was in town a few days since, taking orders for phos phate. After a trial of five years the town sys tem of schools has been superseded by the district system, and the annual school meetings were held in due time. In dis trict No. 13 the prudential committee are William Warren, Henry Adams and Au gustus Adams. J. T. Stevens met with a sad accident Thursday afternoon, in his lower mill. Being near the edging saw the mitten on his right hand drawn on and fearfully lacerated. Dr. Bacon, after removing a part of the metacorpal bone connecting with the fore ifinger, shaped the rest of the hand as best he could, and hopes are entertained that he may save it. Mitchel Wescom recently lost his wal let containing five $5 bills and some change, among which was a five cent sil ver piece bearing date ot 1827. and car ried by Mr. Wescom since 1861. There was also a note for $78 against O. & A. II. Buck, which can be of no use to the finder. Mr. VV. intimates that the wallet was taken from his pocket. The Mills district is having an excit ing debate relative to the erection of the new graded school building. The public spirited people are working for it, and vice versa, 517 having already been sub scribed for the purpose. A vote to build was taken at the annual meeting, and a locating committee were appointed at a meeting called for that purpose. Any object that is really a public benefit should be aided by all good citizens. NORTH HYDE PARK. Bluebirds have come. Luther Griswold is better. Mrs. Ephraim Foss is improving. N. A. Robinson has leased his lartn to Arthur Leach for one year. John Blake is moving 011 to Water Street. The sugar makers are jubilant over the recent fine flow of sap. There is quite a number sick in this village. Mrs. E. W. Smith are anions the afflicted. F. M. Allen has sold what Is known as the Woods farm iu Johnson to O. A.

Give the wood-work of the plows a coat of paint. Tnere is always a market for the best of anything. Good butter cannot be made from poor pasturage. Don t give thin sheep a liberal amount of grain. They can't stand it. The tendency of agriculture is to the cultivation of more grass. The farmer ha3 no use for inferior stock, under any circumstances. Ihe United States imported seeds this year to the value of about four million, five huLdrettthousand dollars. Do not Jet mamireheaps heat; work them over and, get them under ground. Do not attempt to filter impure water through a cow and expect to get pure milk. There is no use in milking a cow unless she has some merit as a milk er or a butter maker. The only cer tain indication of a profitable cow is to see that she gives a large mess of rich milk. The best time for plowing under green crops is when they are flower ing, as they then decay rapidly. 1101-oeus tor starting plants should be begun about six weeks before it is safe to risk the plants in the open ground. A bill has been introduced into Congress appropriating $15,000 year ly to each State for agricultural ex periment stations. It is a bad plan to lend tools. If you do lend them, always make a minute of the fact, what tools and to whom loaned, An KngUsh farmer remarket that he "fed his land before it was hun gry, rested it before it was weary, and weeded it before it was foul." A gardner claims that by planting squash seeds in earth that has a layer of coal ashes above and, below it, the vines will not be molested by cut worms. It is very injurious to colts, as well as to any horses, to give them all the clover bay they will eat. This kind ol feed causes heaves.
