He came to this country over twenty

Hibbert's last illness waa very pathetic.

blow at the great red comforter with
which his wife had covered him, and add
"It'a too bad, but it'a got to come aome

expected to be Unsold."
The plain place which Hibbert sailed
home, the place where he bud lain down to
die, is the top floor of a building juat below
Thirty-first atreet, in Sixth avenue. For
years he had gone up and down the
narrow stairways there, to and trom his
work, stocking making. He was to the
folks who saw bim just a plain, white-
tieardod old man, with a keen eye and quiot
ways. They never knew that that eye of
the old man's had looked through smoke
into the holching mouths of tho Russian
cannon at llalaklava, and that under liis
unpretentious old coat ho wore the precioua
modal which told he was ono of the
seventy-four heroes who came hack 011L of
that awful charge of the Light brigade.
He never displayed the treasure which
any soldier in Britain would givo hia anna

Hires of the fainoua charge, and yesterday,
pointing with his shaky, old finger, he said,
in h voice scarcely oudibla :

Hibbert sighed and si k his head,'' it waa
a   pity,    a sinful, terrible thing,   I can
remember-   It is as plain as if I saw it. now,
aa Nolan rude up and gave llie order.
"Cardigan turned on him   and   cried:
- Nolan,wlio Bent that order '!' No answer.
Thon he asked again: 'Who sent that

what waa happening except that ho waa

aaid, Three miles away. 11 looked like a

Would have been crazy. The four men next

Itut I give just one jab o' lhe spur Into

the shell took her nigh hind leg. I went
tumbling. When I picked myself up there
was a horso without any rider. I got Into
the saddle, and went on with lho rush. j(t
was terrible."
Aa the eld man went on with hi** atory j
hia pale face took on color, and his wife,

"He quiet," aaid the veteran, "I'll ho

"The Captain looked at me and says,

the laat 1 saw of him.
"Well, when we got up to about three

Russians buck an' cut 'em down an' spiked
the guns. That was what we went for, ye
?ee. We all 'had litllo spikin' mallets,"
and as he said thia the old fellow's hand intuitively sought his belt, but there waB no
mallet there, nothing save the thick plaid
shawl which was pinned tiglitahout him.
"There," he said, after coughing feebly,
"there's the picture of the oomin' back.
Ve cau see it was awful, ouly seventy-four

Close beside the bed lay the otd soldier's

The Care of Young Poultry.
To insure a succession of eggs next winter, set the first lu ns early iu the spring,
then, cue or two months later, set again,
and so on. Hens' eggs will require twenty.
une daya for incubation, it not enough
hens ate broody at once, wait until there
are more, for in setting several at once,
two broods of chicks can often be put with
one hen, and the other ben will soon again
be laying eggs. Also, aslhechicka grow,
there can bo moro of ihem in one pen, as
all the chicks in any onc pen must he uf
nearly tho samo age ��� otherwise tho larger
will crowd out tho smaller, finally killing
them. When lhe chicks are hatched, thoy
should not ho disturbed for at IcaBl two
days. Have ready for them a small pen, a
good-si/.ad hox or barrel laid on its aide, in
a warm place, out of doors, if not too oarly
in the spring. Connecting wilh tho pen,
there ahould bo a yard or um, four by six
feot will do, covored with wite netting, or
slats, top and sides, to keep out cats and
otl.or animals, but so arrpnged that tho
top can be easily removed for oloanieg out,
or spading up. A part of this run should
bo roofed over with looso boards to keep
out tho rain, and, until the chicks are a
month or aix wcoks old, tho whole pon
should be covered witli boards during any
continued rainfall. Celling wot kills more
chicks than all other causes combined, If
the weather he warm ami clear, tho mother
and chicks can ho put into thoir pen, when
the chicks aro a week ohl, ami kept thore
until lhey are two mouths old. Then lake
the mother hen away from them and put
them in a larger pen, which need uot have
a covered lop, unless it ia impossible to
otherwise keep oft' cats, skunks, or hawk
Until lho chicks are fully feathered,
they ahould be fed six or eight times'a day,
f/iving them bread, the host portions of
table refuse, oatmeal, or com meal mush,
with aB largo a variety of other food as
possible. They will oat, and should have,
a green food after they are two to four
weeks old. Iu feeding them meal, it muat
bo woll cooked aud cooled. Keep fresh
water where thoy oan get it at all times.
After the chicka are half grown, thoy will
get along with about what lho older fowla
got in tho way of food, but will cat and
gain faster on thc especially prepared food
abovo described. At any timo after the
young chicks are a week old, thoy will he

Young chicks should never be put in tho
same pen or yard witli those much larger
thau themselves. After they are nearly
grown, the cockerels will become quarrelsome, and should he removed by themselves
to other quarters entirely separated from
tho pullets. If i here should bo any ailing
chicka, put the suilerors in a pen by themselves, and feed a more tempting grade of
food than used ordinarily, -Medicine may
sometimes save a sick fowl, hut oftener it
will not. A certain number of the Hock
may die each year in spite of all precautions
or medicines. If the poultry raiser will
persistently observe system in feeding and
watering, iu cleaning houses and yards
and havo a watchful interest iu his flock,
ho cannot foil of reasonable success from
lhe start. Poultry-raising requires very
close attention to details, and proves most
profitable with small flocks and abundant
food and space.

A fashion item saya that coats will bo
worn bmger than usual this Spring. This
is rather odd, considering that moat people
are shorter than usual,
should be brought gradually iuto full work
iu the spring. Do net put the horses at a
hard day's plowing at first, but rather let
them do lighter work for the firat few daya.
Their shoulders will need watching, to aee
that tho collars fit well, that they do not
gall. Loose collars are the most frequent
cause of son shoulders. Sponge the ahoul
ders night and morning with a strong de
coctton of white oak bark until they get
hardened. Many farmers think it too
much trouble to remove the collars at noon,
but I think it would well repay the trouble
in added comfort to the horae. It is like
taking off your hat when you come in at
noon, tired and heated by your work.
Removing the collars at noon while the
horses arc eating gives the shoulders a
chance to become ��� ml. Wheu a gall does
come, bathe it at least threo limes a day
with cohi water. If possible, leL the animal rest until the phee ia healed, hut by
all means try to arrange by winding cloth
around tho collar to relieve the pressure
upon that spot. Oo not hurry the team too
much, but let it take its own natural pace,
and it wilt not need lo rest so often, and
will leavo tho field fresher than if hurried
along with a whip.
In marking out ground for corn or potatoes, if one horse is used it is not so easy
to drive in a straight line as when two horses
are used. If a single horso is used it will
go straighter and better if it is allowed to
go slowly, A horse that is jerked and
yelled at becomes nervous and does not
know what it is about, and cannot do hall
mo woll as wheu ho ia unexcitcd. Give ii
horso a looso rem when he is at work. Hu
cannot use his full strength if his head ii
drawn up with a tight check rein. Perhaps
it is not beat for all kinds of work lhat
there be nu check rein at all, for a horse
will bo reaching down lo the ground wheu
standing still, but it ahouhl certainly allow
tho horae lo get his head down to a level
with the reat of his body. Snme burses
naturaliy carry their heads high, even when
at work, but most of them do not need to
get their heada down to throw all their
weight into the collar to move a heavy load.
Care of Harness for Farm Horses.
The capacity of thc horso for work do
pends much upon hia harncts. Stiff harness
tires and worries him. Oiling the harneas
wiil mako it flexible and will also make it
more durable. There is no hotter time for
oiling harness than some stormy day on
which outdoor work is forbidden by tho
weather. A mixture of three parts neat's
foot oil to one part of beef tallow, is a
splendid application. A little lampblack
may be added, to blacken the leather ; and
also a little castor oil, to prevent the mice
from nibbling. Hut tho heal way to pro.
vont the mice from nibbling the harness jb
to iiai.g it in a tight closet and keep two
or three good mousers about the bam.
When the harness is being oiled is the pro
per time to make any needed repairs. This
work also can be done indoors on stormy
days. It ia certainly much better to do it
then, and not to have vexatious breaks
when plowing is pressing to ho done. Very
nearly all the repairing that is necessary
can he done at home. It will pay to have
on hand at all times a supply of linen thread,
wax, a half dozen assorted needles, awls,
and especially an assortment of copper riv
eta. Strengthening weak places will not
only avoid vexatious breakagea when one is
very busy, but may also avoid runaways,
not a fow of which aro caused by the
breaking of the harness.

Balloon and wagon have formed a j unction
and are ready to start with the troops.
A wuy goea the wagon with tho balloon
hanging on to its tail, whilo the attendant
sappers on each side keep it steady, says a
writer in Good Words. The train moves
along at a good round pace, easily keeping
up with or even passing the infantry, and
makes for tho particular spot at which it
has been determined to commence balloon*
ing operations, which is usually on the top
of a good high hill.
An ascent is an easy enough matter, and
is soon accomplished. The balloon is securely fixed to the end of the wire rope,
and the two men who are to ascend take
their places. At the word of command the
men who havo boen holding down the car
let go, and up shoots the balloon, unwinding the ropo as it rises, and allowed some,
times to ascend to a height of 1,000 feet.
And suppose the officer receives instructions
to movo the position of the balloon, is it
necessary to haul it down? Not a bit of
it. A man is placed at the end of the wagon,
who carefully guides the connecting rope bo
that it cannot get entangled or run risk of
being cut, away goes the wagon, sometimes
at a trot across fields and up and down hill
until tho balloon itself is a long distance
away from ita original station. Next, sup.
pose that it is irceasaryto lower the hai
loon. Ia it needful to wind in all the wire
rope that has heen paid out from the reels
Xo such thing. The. balloon is brought
lo earth iu a much more expeditious man*
A long, stout pole, in the middle of which
is a pulley wheel, ia laid across the ropo.
Half a dozen men sei/o tho polo and 1*1111 it
aloug the rope, and their weight soon brings
the balloon down to the ground. Passengers
can then be exchanged or any other operation cm be carried on, and then tho men
run the pole back and up shoots tbe balloon
again many hundreds of feet into the air,
without having been away from ita exalted
poaition more than a few minutes.
But it is not necessary to lower the balloon in this or any other way whenever it is
required that messages should be exchanged
between thoao below and those above. There
aro various contrivances for doing thiB,
Sometimes, for instance, a wire is attached
through which messages can be sent to u
telephone. Another plan is to send messages
down the wire cable. A littio wire hook is
fastened around the cable and the letter or
paper, weighted with a small sand bag, ia
sent fluttering down. Tho human voice, it
may also be added, can bo heard both from
a considerable height and depth, so lhat
verbal communication is not difficult if
there is no wind.

A Four-Cow Dairy,
Many young fanners propose to become
dairymen some day. Tliey havo learned
that dairy products havo no unprofitable
years, unlike wheat, corn, cotton, beef,
pork, and other farm products. It is a cash
business, or nearly so, and the authorities
aay that dairy products have not aold below
the cost of production but ouco in twenty
years. Tho first thing to do ia to examine
tho market. How can tho milk or butter
bo aold 1 Find out how much can he sold
and thc prices. Hegulato thc si/e of the
dairy to tho amount of milk to he disposed of,
(Ino had better start with four cows thm
wilh more. Hear in mind that a cow cannot pay unless she It well housed and well
fed winter and suihmer. Cet boards if
possible; if not, build four good stalls of
pules and straw. Make the cow-house so
warm that water will never freeze in it.
Have the bottoms of the stalls high
enough to ho always dry. Havo a ditch
aix inches deep and two feet wide behind
lhe cows, and bed them wilh dry lea vi
Koep the cows and stable cli an. The first
lesson in successfully handling cows is the
control of human temper. Never, under
any circumstances, strike a cow and particularly have patieucj with the heifers. They
do not know about the work required of
tliom,aml nothing teaches them morequick-
ly than kindness. Make pots of cow's aud
there will bo plenty of milk. The most
important part of all is to feed the cows
properly. The dairyman must make a
study of this; he must learn how to  mix a
Iu'opcr ration with the feeds at command,
t will not do to depend upon
one thing alone for cow feed. The ordinary mixture is corn meal, bran, a little oil
meal, and buy or fodder. Kvery cow requires a certain amount of feed for the support of her body, and tbe profit depends on
tho amount of food she digests beyond
this. That is,overy cow must bo fed almost
up to a point -vhcro she fails to digest the
food profitably. Do not be afraid of overfeeding her. Not ono cow in a thousand is
overfed, while about ODS in 1,000are underfed. This means with good cows. It does
not pay to keep poor cows. A cow that
makes less than 17-~> pounds of butter in a
year doea not pay, oven if one docs all the
work himself, and raisea most of her food.
Unless there is au ice house and extensivo
apparatus on the farm, it is easier to mako
butter in winter than in summer, while the
prices are very much higher. Indeed, it is
hard to sell either milk or buttor in
summer at any price, but in win-
tor there ia alwaya a top prico demand.
Therefore, havo your cows drop their calves
in tho fall mid yc dry in hot woather.
Butter making ia a business thut noeds care
and study, nnd no one can succeed with it
unless he is willing to give it this kind of
attontion, If one loves tho work, it is the
most Interesting, and hy far the most profitable occupation on tho farm, hut, tiko all
good i hini*.., it means hard work. For the
young man just beginning his biiaitioas life
tlioro is not bin** about the farm that promises so fair a future for him as ibe dairy.
Preserving' the Grain of Btittor.
Thoro is no part of tho process involved
in making an extra quality of butter that
is of equal importance with properly working it. That the but lei milk and wator must
bo taken out of it and tho salt put into it,
aro matters of necessity, and the man who
can invent some cheap method hy which
this can ho done without working tho butter
will be tho dairyman's benefactor. To make
fino butter we must retain the grain iu it,

From the St. Thomas Journal.
"The Angel of the Lord onca-npeth
round about them thai fear Him, and
delivereth tbem." Such in a verse ot holy
writ made familiar to very irtany residents
of St. Thoma*. by the well-known evangelist, Rev. J. K. Hunter. In letters of (-old
on the staine.l glass fanlight over the door
of his residence, No. LIS Welliraston street,
iB the text '* Psalm xxxiv, 7." Though we
live in an ai*e noted for its energetic, zealous Christian endeavor, this idea of Mr.
Hunter's to impress the triiiln of the
scriptures upon ihoso who read though
they run, ia altogether so original and so
novel that it at once oxcites t e curiosity. Tnose not familiar with the text
make a mental noto of it, aud at the first
opportunity look it up. Thia ia just
what was done by a representative of the
Journal, who had occasion to visit Mr.
Hunter's reaideuco tho othor day. But
with the object nf tho visit and lhe information obtained the reader will bo moio
onni'orned, Tht* reporter waa assigned to
investigate a marvellous euro aaid to havo
h en ellectod in tho case of a young lady
employed in -Mr. Hunter'a family, by that
wi-ll<kuawn and popular remedy, Ur, Williams' Pink Pills. Ami it waa a wonderful
siury that the young lady hail to toll, and
ia undoubtedly aa true its it in wonderful.
Laat June the samo reporter interviewed
Mrs. John Cope, wife of thotollgale-keeper
on the London aud Port Stanley road, who
had been cured by Pink Pills of running
ulcers on tho limbs after years of sulleriug,
aud after having been given up by a number of physicians. The old lady had entirely recovered, and could not Bay too much
in praiae of Dr. Williams' Pink Pills, which
had given her a new lease of life. Aa it was
with Mra. Cope, so waa it with Mias Edna
Harris, the young lady in tho employ of
Mr, Hunter's family who has been restored
to health and strength hy Piuk Pills. Mis -
Harris has just passed her twentieth yoar,
and is a daughter of Ceorge Harris, who
lives at Varmou [ h Heights, and is employed
by Mr. Coo. Boucher,floristandphintanian.
"I believe Dr. Williams'Piuk Pills saved
my life, and I am quiio willing that everyone should know it," was the reply of Misa
Harris when asked if she had beon benefitted by Pink Pills, and if so would she make
public ber atory. Continuing, ahe said,
" ���Alien I waa twelve or thirteen years of
age I was first taken sick. The doctors
said my blood had all turned to water. For
five years I suffered terribly, and was so
weak that I could barely keep alive. It was
only my grit and strong will, the doctors
aaid, that kept mo alive at all. If I tried
to stand for a abort time, or if I got the
least bit warm I would fall over in a
faint. My eyes wero white and glaasy,
and I waa so thin and pallid that overy
one helioved I was dying of consumption.
During the five years I waa ill, 1 was attended by five physicians in St. Thomas,
two in Detroit, one in London and one
in Alymcr and none of ihem could do
anything for mc. I was so far gone
that they bad no hopea of my recovery.
Towarda the laat my feet and limbs
swelled so they had to be bandaged to
keep them from bursting. They were
bandaged far three mouths, and my whole
body was swollen and bloated, and the
doctors aaid there was no', a pint of blood
in my body, and they held nut no hopes
whatever, Two years ago I saw in tho
JiHiriinl about a man in Hamilton boing
cured by taking Pink Pilla. I thought il
tbey could cure him they would help me,
nnd I dceided to try thom. Beforo I hail
finished three boxes 1 felt relieved ; the
swelling wont down and the bandages were
removed. I continual taking Pink Pills
until I hail taken seven boxes, then irregularly I took three more, ono of which Mr.
Hunter brought back from Brockville. I
am perfectly cured. I havo not been ill a
single day sinco I finished the seventh box
of pills. I camo to Mrs. Hunter's a year
ago, and she will tell yon I have never been
ill a day since coming here, and I always
feel strong and ablo to do the work. I cau
and do strongly recommend Dr. Williama'
Pink Pills," aaid Mias Harris in conclusion.
Her appearance ia certainly that of a strong,
healthy young woman,
Mrs. J. E, Hunter, wife of tho evangelist,
told the reporter that Miss Harris waa a
good, reliable and truthful girl, and that
perfect reliance could be placed in her statements. "She looks like a different girl
from what sho was when she came here a
year ago," said Mrs. Hunter.
The facts above related aro important to
parents, as thero arc many young girls
just budding into womanhood whose condition ia, to say the least, moreoritical than
their parents imagine. Their complexion
is pale and waxy jn appcaranco, troubled
witli heart, palpitation, headaches, shortness

When I look back ut the earlier days of
my life, I wonder why i did not fellow the
example of Bimpfylue Moore Carew, and
run away with tne gypsies. -Many of them
came through our parish ou their way
backwards and forwards between the south,
and Exmoor and Dartmoor in the north.
Ossulstou waa I think, the moat miserable
village in all North Devon, For milea and
mites there was not a hedge���nothing but
heavy, squat, stone walls. The river ran
through the parish, and there waa a mill,
of course, and a mill-dam with trout in it,
which uaed to lie under the shadow of the
old stone bridge ; you could lean on the
parapet ami watch them hanging lazily
about tho stream, each in its own especial
My father was iho Vicar of Ossulston, and
I was bin ouly child. The Vicarage was a
atone house of eight rooms, roofed with
atone roughly chipped iuto heavy slabs. We
kept a couplo of cows, some pigs, and of
course poultry and ducks. I need scarcely
say we nnil an orchard, but the trees had
not been grafted for years, and were long
past their prime. We burned wood and
turf���being many miles from the nearest
railway station, and oven from the canal.
Our roof was thickly covered with yellow
atoneornp, houseleok, and other such
parasitic plants. In the garden my fa*
ther allowed'old gooseberry and currant
trees to run to waste, and there were a few
wall-(lowers. Onco or twice a year my
father wont to Exeter, coming back with
clothe*] for himself, a supply of tobacco and
spirits and rough stuffs, flannel, callco,print,
aud serge, to be made into garments for bis
daughter. He mod to bring back some
ready-made boots and a few other domestic
necessaries, not to be procured at tho village
Of myself, and my education, with the
exception of ("reek and Latin whioh he
taught me more or less thoroughly, and of
anything that might concern me, he took
no heed whatever,   Except that I had to
f;o to church twice on Sundays, 1 was as
ittle looked after as an Exmoor colt,
1 was happy, however, in my own way.
For I could not even remember the loss of
my mother, and there was nobody to care or
trouble whero I went or what I did When
I was six years old, I recollect that I used
to steal the fresh eggs early iu the morning,
make little holes iu them with a pin, suck
out ths contents, and carefully pulverize
and bury the shells.
My father often wondered why his hens
did not lay as regularly as they ought to
have dono, but he never seemed to trouble
himself as io how I got my breakfast, or,
indeed, whether I got nny breakfast'at all.
Iu summer there wore apples and plums.
After dinner 1 could forage for myself in
tho kitchen, for my father dined alone.
Sometimes I did not see him for several
days together. When hiB own dinner was
over, he used to sit in an arm-chair in his
room, smoke a long clay pipe and drink
spirits and water. When he had enough
tobacco and enough spirits, ho used to go to
His great occasions were whon a neighbouring farmer asked him to dinner. He
always accepted such invitations.
" We must ho all things to all men," he
used to say solemnly. I fancy he gave this
precept a somewhat liberal interpretation,
for I know now that the peculiar condition
iu which ho used to return home was due
to strong waters, and that hia late hours
the noxt morning, with his anxiety for dry
toast and weak tea, had the same explnna-
I have since heard that be was a disappointed mau. He ought to have taken high
honors at his university, but instead of
that he somehow failed to take a good degree. He ought to have hail a Fellowship
and a College living, hut his claims were
passed over. As ho got on in life, or rather in years, his friends persistently gave
him the cold shoulder. Tlie livings he had
been positively promised, and which had
lieen given to other men, wero moro numerous than the number of pounds in his owu
wretched stipend.
He onco in desperation thought of writing
a book on antiquities, county history, and
natural history of Devonshire, but he never
got further thau ordering several reams of
foolscap and a big jar uf ink, for both of
which ho was ultimately Bued in the County
Court, when an order was made against him
to liquidate the amount by monthly instalments of four shillings each.
My father was now perilously close upon
sUtyyearaofage.buthad a pleasant habit of
telling everybody that he was annewhere
between forty-six and fifty. Age had certainly put a* vory few traces upon him.
Like all selfish mnn he was thoroughly well
preserved, nud if he had been a duke, with
the medical resources of a duke, and with
ducal opportunities for travel, ohango nf
climate, and special attention to every minute detail of comfort, might, perhaps, have
lived on into his tenth decade. With
nothing to worry you, and with plenty of
money, it is perfectly possible to trifle with
Providence up to an immense age.
His own views of life and his arrangements, so far as thoy concerned himself,
wero simple enough. He had hia income
as Vicar and his bit ol glebe, which he prudently tot out. Duringthe summer months,
when London was empty, he made a clear
profit. Some fashionable London preacher
would come down and take the Vicarage
for threo mouths, undertaking nil the responsibilities of parochial service. Out of
this temporary transfer my father used te
make a comfortable annual sum. In fact
he farmed his Vicarage, and tho summer
months in which he let his house were the
season of his fat kino.
Always struggling to make both ends
meet, he somehow contrived to satisfy the
problem from his own point of view. For
my own part I know no more dull,
wretched, miserable boing than a stupid
man with a few worthless and fourth-
rate university credentials, on the strength
of whioh he believes, or has onoe lio-
lieved, that ho can take the wirld by
My father had forgotten all that he ever
kuow, if, indeed, he had ever known anything ; and iu the private bar-room of tho
village inn he was, at 1 know perfectly well,
the gonoral tnitt of tho company. They
pretended to listen to him, thoy treated him
la whiskey and water; and when tho time
came for closing, he was, in consideration
of his position, aunt homo in charge of the
I table- hoy.
That youth had a very fair alto voice, iu
virtue of which he sang in tho parish choir.
It was unpleasant to soo him put his tongue
in his cheek when my unhappy father
stumbled through the words " manifold
Theso were a few of my youthful trials.
So tho years slipped away until I was
twenty. I kept no account of time ; why
should I have done su 1 There wai nothing
in the past to which Icould l��nk back, nor
nothing in the future to which I could iook
Andromeda, chained up by lior hands to
the rook, was not more helpless. Hut she
had a chance whicli I boa not. At any
moment tho sea monster might put in an

merciful end to my sufferings, There I
was���chained. Twenty years from now
I should bo an old woman. And lhe
twenty years showed no hopo, prospect, cu
even chance of release,   H was horrible.
One day there oame ,i break iu thi

Evidently it was none of theae thingB.
Equally clear wot it that it meant something, and aa the something in question
could not possibly be for the worse, I was
content to wait.
That afternoon, my father, at an earlier
hour than usual, betook himself to the
room which he called his study. Let me
give the inventory of this apartment.
There were several battered volumes of
Bohu's Translations of the Classics ; there
were some odd volumes of South, Barrow
and Tillolaon. There waa Stanley's "Sinai
and Pal'.-fltine," an old edition of the
"Enoyolopiodta Kritaunica ;" Alford's
"Greek Testament," Harold Browne ou
the Arcticles, I'aley's "Evidences," and a
few stray, novels in yellow pasteboard;
" Barchestor Towers," " The Last Chronicles of Barset," "Dr. Thorno," "Tom
Jones," " Peter Simple," and other such
ecclesiastical and uuecclesiastical romances
On the mantelpiece was a tobbacoo jar, and
by it were one or two clay pipes; there
was 'a shelf with bottles white aud black,
most of them empty. On rails against the,
walls, hung in various stages of dilapidation, overcoats, leggings and water-proof
f'arments. There was also an old double-
larrollcd guu, a powder flask, und a shot
bell, for my father, being on terms with
the surrounding farmers, considered rabbits
a lawful part of the tithe nl which thc
State had iniquitousty despoiled bim,
I entered this sanctum sanot-orum without terror. I was too old for my father to
smack me, and thero was really nothing
else of whioh I need be in the least degree
afraid. Hut I knew it was hiB habit to
transact important business in the study.
Unimportant business, suoh as the bill of
the baker, he used to transact at the garden gato ; and so, when summoned to tbe
study, I knew that there was something
more Important on hand than the weekly
accounts, or the   pros,pouts   of the potatoe
Eatoh, or the precise reasons why the old
rown Cochin hen should hive left off laying.
My father was in an old wooden armchair, in whioh he looked almost venerable.
It was closo to the table, which gave him
an appearance of having that very moment
abandoned his work. Thett must have
been in him, at some timet: ether, some
vague instincts of art, for llie pose and
the surroundings were really clever. As I
opened the door I almost seemed to hear a
small bell jingle for the rising of tho curtain.
My parent arranged his necktie, and
ri-.ii his Angers through hia hair ; theu he
twisted his only ring round upon his little
linirer, bringing the small brilliant diamond
held in its claws into prominent play. Then
he cleared his throat and begin.
"Tako a seat, Miriam," ha commenced
Then, when 1 had obeyed, iie proceeded
cheerily, and in a tone of assurance,as if he

it lay with him only to hold up his little

And herewith my excellent parent strolled away down the village to visit his
senior churchwarden, intimating that hu
wished to accompany him. By a singular
and happy coincidence it was one o'clock.
Mr, Thaeker, a prosperous blacksmith and
wheelwright, was just about to dino off
bacon and broad beans, with a treacle
dumpling to follow. Tiie call of the Vicar
was positively opportune. My father and
I stayed to dinner, and after it ho smoked
a pipe with Mr. Timelier, over which they
djsoussed the present average prices of
market produce. Ho also intimated the
name and rank of his expected visitor,
whereat Mr. Thaeker put aside the tobacco
air, and produeod a box of cigars, together
with a choice bottle of old Hollands.
"Hehadalways himself," said the church
warden, "been a hard working-nun who had

This was a home thrust which mado my

To forego a very doubtful debtof seventy
shillings for the prospect, however remote,
of un advantageous loase, Ib not, aa things
go, a bad speculation. Evidently Mr.
Thicker did not think so; for, as hia Vicar
left, he pressed a sovereign upon him, with
somo incoherent remarks about the number
of turnpikes upon tho road. He must have
forgotten, in his excitement, that his
reverend visitor had been a foot passenger,

The gold in his waistcoat pocket imparted

operatic airs as we walked back. He had

How is It that the eyes of some portraits
seem to follow a spectator around the room?
It is thus explained: Suppose a portrait
have its face and eyes directed straight in
front, ho as to look at tho spectator. Let
a straight line be drawn through the tip of
the nose and halfway between the eyes, On
each side of this middle Hue there will be
the same breadth of head, of cheek, of chin
and of neck, and each ina will be in the
middle of the whole of the eye.
If one now go to or.e aide, the apparent
horizontal breadth of every part ot the
head and face will he diminished, but the
E,irts on each side of the middle line will
e diminished equally and at every position, however oblique, thero will be the
same breadth of face on each sido of the
middle line and the iris will remain in the
centre of the whole of the eyeball, so that
the portrait will preserve all tho character
ot a figure looking at the spectator and
must necessarily do so wherever he stands.
In portraits the apparent motion of the
head is generally rendered indistinct by
the canvas being imperfectly stretched aB
thc slightest concavity or convexity entire,
ly deforms the face ofttimes the obliquity
is considerable. The deception ia, therefore,
seen best when the painting is executed on
a flat board and in colors sufficiently vivid
to represent every line in the face with
tolerable distinctness at great obliquities.
Distinctness of outline ia also most necessary to a satisfactory exhibition of thia
optical delusion.

Encourage the Children.
Mothers, do not do everything yourselves. Teach the children to help you;
they will be acquiring kuowlodge for thorn*
selves at tlm same timo. Call those who
me old enough around you in tho morning,
and say to then : "Now, children there is
this much to do and I have only ono pur
of hands; if you will all take hold and
help all you can, maybe mother cau tiud

brought wood into the oity to sell, A favorite game was to play that some grand
personage was coming to dinner or to spend

hurrying here and there to have everything
in readiness before the illustrious visitor
should arrive ! And when the time came,

Use the ex^ra time you have gained by

they are particularly fond of ; a ramble in
the woods for Bowers or mosses, a gsmo of
croquet or whatever else they chouse. Make
yourself one of them for awhile,and aee how
you will enjoy it. Study their dispositions
carefully and their likes and dislikes, and
try to accommodate their surroundings,
their work and their play, so that all will
be congenial. You know how much easier
itis for you to do work that you liko, and
are iuterested in, and how much more contented you feel if your surrounding are
pleasant to you.
We are all children, only of different
sizes, aud the younger onea cannot reason
away what iB unpleasant to them as we
older ones can, ao we muat smooth out the
rough places for them, afford them ull the
pleasures we can, and do not let any trifles
stand in the wiy. Plan for their little
pleasures as you would for your own larger
ones. Look at the matter from every point
of view and reason it out with yourself,
before you deny any reasonable request,and
be very sure that you are right even then.
After you have decided talk it over with
tbem, explaining your reason to them as
far as possible. Vou will be astonished to
soe how they will listen and ask questions
and how much more pleasant the result
will be than if you snapped out a "No, you
can't 1" without oven stopping to think if
you were right in your rofusal or not. They
will think you cross unjust and unreasonable, and yon won't feel any too pleasant
yourself after such a remark. If for good
reasons you muat deny them some coveted
pleasure, try to mako it up to them in some
other way. They will appreciate and remember it long after you have forgotten it.

very fond of having school-room theatricals,
as woll as of visiting the theater-which
means their father's private  performances,
off the west coast of Cape York peninsula,
south of the Latavia River, ou Thursday,
the I Mb of January, the Kanahooka encountered a tremendous gale. The after-
deck house and skylight were carried away.
TremendcuB seas wa-died aboard, and lhe
crew were ordered to batten down the large
hole in the deck made by Lhe loss of the
deckhouse. The men hud to be lashed to
the rails when at this work. They wore
frequently washed overboard and hauled
aboard again. The water continued to find
its wuy into the hold, and was soon soaked
up by the guano, the extra weight causing the vessel to settle. The pumps
were worked continuously from Thursday night lill Friday night, when
they wer ��� abandoned. As the sea burst
into the h ild tho fires were extinguished,
and the vessel sank. The crew hail meanwhile lowered and manned two boats, which,
in the darkness, The OAI tain's boat arrived off Mitchell River on the sixth day ; but
when near lho shore she capsized, and one
nf the crew, named .Murray, waa drowned.
The remaining seven men swam nine
hours towards the shore taking the boat
with ihem. The craft then righted, and
the captain and three men went ashore in
search of fond, leaving three men in the
boat, which kept withic hailing distance.
The boat, however, was eventually caught
by the wind and the ourrent, aud was
tat en to sea again, aud after drifting
fifty hours was sighted by the steamer
Victoria, which was unable to rescue the
occupants owing to the shallow water.
The Victoria, however, reported the matter at. Normanton, aad the Government
steam launch Vigilant went out and rescued
the throe men. The oaptain and the three
men ashore
and the captain and chief engineer were
eventually drowned, the two remaining
survivors being picked up by a atockman.
Meantime the rest of the crew in the mate's
boat had experienced terrible hardships.
They left the sinking ship In an open boat
18ft. long, with only two oars aB a meanscf
propeltln? it, and they drifted tor two
nichts and days before the wind and sea.
They then struck the coast near Duyfhen
Point. The boat capsized nearly a mile
from shore, but the wind drifted her ashore.
Two of the men were unable to swim, but
got ashore iu safety with tbe assistance of
the others. The party then started to walk
towards Batavia River, feeling it hopeless
to try to pull the boatagainstaea and wind.
They could see Duyfhen Point in the distance, and travelled some miles towards it,
when thoir route was blocked by dense,
Impenetrable scrub, and they wore compelled to return to the boat. They noxt
found that the natives had stolen tho oars
and rowlocks, and they had no sails. For
several days the party kept traversing the
scrub, a distance of nearly fifteen miles, in
hopes of-jetting through. For eight days
they had nothing to eat but occasionally
sand oralis and berries. Some of the latter
nearly killed them.   Some of
came and were friendly, but desired the
survivors' clothing. Shortly afterwards
three young men who had been in contact
with the mission station and traders took
tho part of the survivors, and the natives
handed over thc oars and described the
mission station as being so many days'walk
away, with so many rivera to swim. The
natives all along proved of great assistance,
helping all thoy could, although thty had
no food to givo, Mr. Bradley, the chief
officer, considers their survival due to the
influence of the missionaries with the
natives. When the oars were returned the
party started to pull along the coast, but
made little progress owing to weakness,
want of sails, head wind and tides, finding
it almost hopeless to battle against tha
adverse elements. During the timo the
men woro on the beach they lived on little
else than water, and they dug holes and
partly buried themselves at night aa
mosquitoes, and sandflies. It was arranged that the second eugineer and
aecoudjmaie, who were the strongest swimmers in the party, should push on ahead.
Thia thoy did, and after severe trials, swimming rivers, dodging alligators, living ou
raw heche denier, rotten apples, rotten
cocoanuts, and fresh cocoanuts which were
washed ashore, they reached tho mission
station on the 4th of February. One of
thom had nothing but a shirt on, and his
legs were terribly burnt and wounded. At
the mission station thoy were most hospitably treated. Constable Thomas Smith,
the special officer stationed at the mission,
then left with five natives in a whaleboat
.n quest of tho other men, and found them,
but had great difficulty in landing. The
boat swamped. Their provisions were
washed ashore, but the boat was so much
ijured that it had to be left behind ina
creek, Smith and his men eventually
escorted tho Kanahook a survivors in
safety to the mission.

Hirongly urges the construction of a railroad to the cnast, aud the draining of the

The roport strongly recommends the retention by Ureat Britain uf its protectorate

Can Spiders Hear ?
There has been an interesting discussion
of the question whether spiders can hear.
(Experiments recently made with a tuning
fork have convinced Mr. l'ocock, an English
naturallBl, that some spiders, at least, really
hear the aound produced by tho fork. Indeed, the conduct of spiders when a vibrating tuning-fork is held near their welwis
quite remarkable.
Some species, as, for instance, the ordinary garden spider, Kpeira diademata, will
run at the fork and Btrike or snatch at it
with their fore legs.
The Amaurobius, a spider which builds
tubular weba in holes in walls, runs about
in great excitement when the tuning-fork
ia held near it. This spider cau be enticed
out of its hole by holding the fork near the
entrance, and it will even climb upon the
vibrating instrument.
Another species of garden spider, which is
smaller'and handsomer than the Kpeira,
always, according to Mr. Pocock, drops
from its web in terror when u tuning-fork
ia held over it. These spidera are tho prey
of wasps and as they alwaya drop from their
webs on tho approach of their insect
enemy, it has been suggested that they
mistake the sound of the tuning-fork for
the humming of a wasp's wings.
But some observers do not assent to the
conclusion that it i-i the sound of the fork
which attracts the attention of the spiders.
They think the vibration ia conveyed
through the air to the webs, uml that tho
alight motion thua imparled is perceptible
by the spiders.
As this is an experiment that any one
can easily try, perhaps some of our young
readers will endeavor to settle the question
for themselves,

Agriculture in Britain
British agricultural returns for ISA.1*! show
the remarkable fact that during last year
some 150,000 acres of land in Great Britain
were withdrawn from cultivation and
turned into pasture. This is spoken of as
"actual abaiidoment of cultivation" of this
area. Tho main point deducted is that
Great Britain is rapidly ceasing to be a
wheat-producing country. Comparing the
present wheat area with that of 187.1 the
decline is l,8M,O0O acreB. The returns nlso
show lhat fruit farming and market gardening are largely increasing. In 1SD3 there
were 05,-187 acres in this kind of cultivation
as againit 62,148 acres in 18112, Argument has been largely made of lato that ii
English farmers would give their attention
to truck-farming and fruit raising thoy
might retrieve thoir almost ruined fortunes.
They cannot compete with America and
India in wheat-growing and they lose more
money every year. At the Bamu time Immense quaiitilios of fruit, vegetables,
butter, chceso, eggs and even milk, arc
imported from abroad. Butter and eggs
oome in ship-loads even from as far as Australia. I,a*u year butter, cheese, and eggs

well to say that Congress must not be

horde of politicians angling for votes?
