THE HANEFM. CllKDIT HYHTEM.
My exrience had taught me that the
crwlit nynti'in mn much to do with einbar
rament of th farmer. It causes him to
he-come cnrelem ami "inconsiderate. He
rtitia an account at the store from "prititf
until he can hn crop in the fall, paying
more in contefjutftici", and as he has not to
t.ny as lie Inns he gets many things that he
Htid his family could do without. In the
miiio way lit) runs an account with mechan
ics, and consequently he pays for many
small jolm that he could juat as well do him
himself. 1U plow mower or binder needs
trpalrt it is forgotten or neglected until
near the time it mint he used. He takes It
to town for repairs, and the mechanics are
so driven with work that the job is delayed
until the crop suffers. Hence a tool that
unnld do sprviee for some vears vet with
i'J or $4 worth of repairs Is laid aside, and
a debt is contracted for a new article. So
ileht after debt accumulates until it be
comes necessary to mortgage the farm to
pav them oil
This is no eness work with me. I have
had experience. Tnere was a time up to
ten years'ago that I ran an account at the
stores, and when I came to settle up in the
fall I was always surprised at the amount,
What I supposed to bo $75 would often be
$KM) or $12o. Then by helping others, en
dorsing their poprf I found an indebted
ness of atwut .2(X)0. consequently a mort
iraire. I struggled under it for a long time
until I had an opportunity to sell 80 acres
of my 1(10 acre farm. Itcleared meout of
debt and gave me $1000 besides. I felt like
a bird let loose from a cae. I could breath
the pure fresh air, which improved my
health, for I had no worriment. I soon
lought 20 acres more and paid the money
down I now have all the land I want and

have something to sell every month and

HOW TO CAKE FOR THE Via.
The little pig, taken from its mother,
muMt be confined In a very tight enclosure,
or it will find a hole through which it will
crawl, or it will climb very high In its ef
forts to get home. io animal has the bom
iug instinct stronger than the pig, unless
it be the carrier pigeon. A little pig will
find its way miles to its former nest. As
soon as weaned, which will take a couple
of weeks, it may be let out into a yard con- ,
nected with its weaning place. In a few
days it should have the run of a grass plat,
or it should be fed grass. A pig enjoys the
sunshine as much as a baby, and it will lie
in the buii and grow. The pig is an out'
door animal. It only needs a dry and
warm bed to go to. This, in summer time,
is all the 8ort of an enclosure it requires.
If it must be kept in a yard with a bed
room attached, let it be fed in the yard and
ho keep its sleeping place clean. There
should be a shaded or cool place in the yard
for the pig to utilize when it Is hot. Gen
erally there is a foul mud hole to which a
pig will resort to cool itself. There should
not be any mnd holes. If there are they
should be filled up, and the water turned do
that it will not settle in hollows so as to
make such places. A shed in one corner of
the yard will afford the needed protection
to the pig, and here it will lie in comfort
when it is very hot, aud grow. It should
be the business of a nig; to grow when it is
not eating, aud it will always do so if it is
comfortable and has enough to eat.
HOW TO MANAGE GATE TOSTS.
Of all the inconveniences atwut the farm
there are few more annoying than sagging
gates, while a well balanced, nicely swung
gutu is a pleasure to the owner and a guar
uutee 'of welcome to the guests. Gates,
barn doors and fences are certificates of
character by which the public estimate the
landlord. Among the contrivances to se
cure a good gate, nouo have been found, in
our experience, to surpass the following:
Dig the post holes three and one-half feet
deep, letting the earth be level aud Arm at
the bottom. Use medium sized posts, with
good ends sawed wjuare off. We usually
place the posts 11 feet apart, although a
wider gate will not sag if set in this way.
Fill the holes with well-tamped earth.
Take a piece of hard wood (locust preferred)
just, long enough to fit nicely between the
poits, and six or seven inches in diameter.
A round piece of wood is best. Dig a little
trench deep enough to bury this piece of
wood three inches below tho surface. Set the
posts perpendicular, and no ordinary gate
will pull them over. The ground should be
high enough under .the gate to carry the
water away and secure good drainage.
Gravel or mill cinders or iounded stone
will make a good roadbed for the approaches
so that no ordinary hauling will cut a rut
deep enough to bring the wheels into con
tact with the buried brace. Gates on this
farm feet in this way have been iu use ten
years, and uow Bwing so easily that a child
large enough to reach the fastenings can
open and close them with ease.
A WOIU) FOIL THE WIVES AND DAUGHTERS.
At Millerton, X. Y.( Miss A. A. McAu
liffe delivered an address from which the
following is an extract: "Wo need a high
er apreciation of the iinjtortance and dig
nity of housekeeping. This is to be an at
taiument worthy of any woman's ambition
und an occupation which should afford more
pleisure and profit than a great deal of
work that girls spend their time over. The
husband should make bis wife au intelli
gent partner in all his business, so that, if
she should be left to manage for herself,
she would not be so dependent on his rela
tives, who are usually ready and willing to
step in with advice aud management. If
left alone, by and by she will be able to do
almost us well as her husband, if well
trained, and there ought to be pleasure aud
profit In this mutual life. I have never
seen women more self-sacrificing, more sen
sible, more independent, than those who
are real farmers. It is always, with them,
utility first and ornament last. The farm
er sits dow n to rest with his pipe his tired
wife rests darning the stockings. Why do
we not hear more about attracting the girls
to the farms, as well as the hoys! Are
boys of more real value on a farm f I have
known girls whose helpfulness and sunny
presence on a farm were a perpetual bene
diction. You offer them no special induce
ment; yet they stay by you and aid you
with a heartiness and self-denial that should
nut their more favored brothers to the
blush. The agricultural depression is, I be
lieve, only temporary. The tide is now
toward the cities ; it will come back before
long, It is well that some farms are de
serted. It were better they had never been
cleared, and the sooner they grow up into
forest lauds the better for themselves and
posterity. The western tide will be turned
in good time, aud demand come for our
farms. We have natural advantages that
the West does not possess. Our hilly lands
make the best butter, aud our soil and wa
ters are said to be specially suited for live
stock. We have th? best home markets
und are the nearest to markets. Why
Bhould not our agriculture Bucceed f"
Am Iulrrrilui Vrirrlnnrr Operation.
Dr. W. 21. Simpson, the veterinarian,
on Sunday, May IB, )ierformed the difficult
operation of abdominal section on a two-year-old
heifer belonging to George E. Ly
ons, for the purpose of removing a calf
which was in the right fallopian tube. A
large dose of chloral was administered and
a long incision (15 inches), running diagon
ally, was made iu the right side of the ab
dominal wall, dividing successively the
skin, muscles and peritonaeum. Then the
fallopian tube was drawn up to the abdom
inal opening und an incision of about ten
Iches made in this, through which a fine
lively calf was extricated. After the mem
branes and placental remains were removed
the several incisions were closed up with
continuous silk sutures, idofortu being free
ly applied to each line of suture. The op
eration was done in accordance with the
rules of antiseptic surgery. The heifer has
made a rapid recovery, has not had a par
ticle of fever, eats and drinks freely and
chews her cud complacently. The caff was
lively and well for three days and then,
probably through some error hi feeding,
sicken and died. As fur as t an be seen
at present the operation is entirely success

Whnl la Truck In the Public Hchln.
At a recent meeting of the Cumberland
county (Me.) Pomona grange, the proxi
lion to tench agriculture in tne mimic
schools was oposed by W. J. Oorthell, the
lecturer of Gorham giauge and principal
of the Gorham normal school. Some of
his suggestions were the following : Agri
culture fs a practical art. There is no sci
ence of agriculture. Practical art can be
taught only in schools especially orgnnized
for teaching such art. The so culled agri
cultural colleges do not, have not, and
probably never will teach agriculture. The
public schools are for the whole people,
therefore nothing should be taught in them
save what all the people need to know.
The art of agriculture is a special art, all
the people do not need to know it, there
fore it should not be taught In tho public
cliools. All the people need to know how
to experiment carefully, to observe accu
rately, patiently, exactly, to judge cor
rectly i the neonle not only need to know
how to do these things, but they must have
such Dower and habit of experiment, ob
servation and reasoning to prepare them
for successful life. No studies In the
schools as now taught give such training;
the elements of natural sciences, rightly
taught, would give such power and habit.
therefore the elements of the above named
sciences should be taught in the public
schools of all grades, because all the peo
ple need the training which they give and
which can be obtained from no other
studies. Such subjects, properly taught.
while not the art of farming, give the
knowledge of nature which is specially
needed by the farmer. The elementary
study of chemistry, physics, botany, zoolo
gy, etc., is all the public schools can do for
These studies, to be of any value, must
be taught objectively by experiment; sci
ence can in fact be taught in no other way.
A book between nature and the student in
the study of nature is a dead wall over
which the student can not get to see nature
at all. It Is not enough that the teacher
make the experiments and the pupils look
on, the aim of such studies can bo reached
only when the pupils do the work,
As this work must be done by the pupils
under the direction of the teacher and car
ried on by the pupil, without book, but by
investigating nature herself directly, it is
obvious that the teachers must know what
to teach and how to teach. This the ma
jority of the teachers in elementary schools
ilo not know ; tnere must tw therefore in
the schools, before this kind of work can
1)0 well done, better trained teachers.
Time enough can be obtained for such
teaching. All study of technical English
f;rammar should be excluded from all pub
ic schools below the grade of High school.
Geography should be reduced one-half. All
the minute details of natural forms and po
litical divisions, as the 15 rivers of South
America, the various supposed states of
Africa and Asia with their supposed capitals
and chief cities, and a vast amount of such
stuff which the poor children are compel
led to memorize, only to forget, and which
no intelligent man or woman pretends to
know or wunts to know, should be rigidly
excluded. With the exclusion of such
worse than useless stuff, plenty of time
can be had for thoroughly teaching the el
ements of botany, chemistry and physics.

Those who are unfamiliar witn the pine
clad slopes of the Rocky mountains can
have but little conception of the destruc
tion wrought by fire which passes through
these forests. The g.'ound is covered to a
depth of a foot or more with the pitchy ac
cumulations of centuries of forest growth.
Piue needles, cones, dead branches, and the
resinous trunks of fallen trees form a for
est floor that catches fire like tinder and
burns like n furnace. A spark from a
camp fire, pipe or cigarette may ignite this
forest floor, which may smoulder for hours
or days before bursting into flame. This
llame once started, the fire moves rapidly
before the wind, constantly finding, as it
moves along, new food in the dfhris upon
the ground. The foliage of the evergreens
burns as readily as bay soaked in kerosene
oil. Etch tree, as the fire touches it. be
comes a huge torch, which Hares up for a
moment aud then goes out, but in that mo
ment the tree's life has been destroyed, aud
the thousand trunks of the forest are left
to stand for years, black monuments of the
fire's destructive force. Before a gale, such
as often rages in the mountains, a fire
which has got into the thick timber rushes
onward with a fury which is indescribable,
and destroys in un hour timber that a cen
tury of growth cannot replace Forest and

The fault with the roads iu too many
American cities and towns is that the)' are
only temporary makeshifts, they are not
roads. The)' are built for the time being,
and should they last while their builders re
main in office, they have done all that was
ex pec t e 1 of them. And this has been go
ing on in many American towns for the
past hundred or more years. Is it to be
wondered at, then, that the roads of today
are but little if any t fetter than those over
which the "one horse shay" first traveled I

CllrU U the Onirr VrM,
The Intense hashfuluefts u filleting1 many
girls when they go out Into the outer world
comes often from a self-eonscloumcss. For
this there is but one cure ; forget yourself,
and do not Imagine nil eyes uinm you. In
fact each one of us forms a very small
part of the world, though one can hardly
think fo in her secret thoughts.
Study repose of manner; do not play
with Jour lingers, twitch your feet, or
move about when talking. If uti blush
do not Imagine it a fault when it is really a
sign of modesty. Learn to be good listen
ers if you would be thought bright, but do
not lw afraid to give jour opinion when
asked for ft. Kespectful attention to older
people, patience with little ones, and n
kind I j consideration for those of her own
age are charming traits in n young girl.
Do not be in a hurry to become a fully
fledged woman ; "youth has charms of its
own unknown to maturity."
Half your awkwardness disappears if
you know what to talk alnrnt, and in order
to do this keep jwsted on the current topics
of the day. These can be gleaned from
newspapers, magazines, and from mingling
with intelligent people. It Is not necessa
ry to read the sensational uews contained
in the papers we "cannot touch pitch and
remain tiudefiled" but glance over the na
tional and state news, reviews of the latest
books; know whether we have a Demo
cratic or Republican president, yet do not
hold forth upon such subjects like an em
bryo politician. Altove all things cultivate
a low, sweet voice, one of woman's charms,
and a persuasive style of speaking. If nat
urally sarcastic, regard it as a fault to be
eradicated. In general conversation speak
kindly of all, and be not too fond of the
pronoun "I." Personal experiences are
not specially Interesting unless to an inti
Consider a day lost when you do not ac-
complish a kind act or learn something new
of persons, places or things. If you can,
secure a college training; but if not, be
come through personal study an intelligent,
well-bred, unselfish woman and faithful
friend, and with such among us this world
grows nearer our idea of Arcadia. Some
times I think that a trulv unselfish woman is
the "pearl of great price" that we read of,
Probaldj' you are tired of hearing about
the use of slang; but in regard to itn
coarseness there can be no doubt, and a
true woman is never coarse. Refined
thoughts and actions bring a refined look,
which redeems a positively plain face, so
that by yielding to our personal vanity
and we all have it or we would not be hu
man we may cultivate a desirable trait,
which otherwise muiht be too much of an
effort, and a modicum of vanity causes us
to make ourselves pleasing to others. lAt

In Germany they have a pretty custom,
when a girl baby comes, of beginning on
her lirst birthday to form her trousseau
Her godmother gives the big, handsomely
carved hatching chest, and in this goes
gradually the the bed linen, the napery, and
the silver that, as an industrious fraulein,
she will later carry to her own home. The
American mother is beginning to see the
value of this custom, and the hatching
chest now makes its apfearance and is
carefully filled. Grandmamma, wisely
enough, begins a set of tablespoon, and
when the little girl is twelve years old she
will have a full dozen of them, each bear
ing her initials. From an aunt will have
come the teaspoons, from an uucle the
forks, and from mamma the handsome na
pery. After the twelfth year come the
bed linen, and heavier pieces of silver and
choice hits of china. These things cost a
lot of money, but as they are given so grad

Oh, hut she will keep a home for herself

American women are not, as a general
thing, accumulative. She who keeps

can be generous, and it is pleasant to live
in the memory of one's friends, even if the
thought comes with the fragrant tea out of
the fat silver teapot, or the delicate-handled
old-fashioned spoons which have been
yours. In any case, start a hatching chest
for your small girl, and conclude that she
will use its contents in her own household.
