    A nce-Refl Home.
THK Governor-General's sanctum in
the regal residence at Ottawa is a cheery
apartment lighted by two windows. A
narrow door close to the desk gives ac
cess to the private working-room and
atelier of the Princess Louise. Portraits
of the late Duchess of Argyll and the
splendid Duchess of Sutherland adorn
either side of the mi rror. On the man
telpiece were two photographs of the
Princess Louise, ons representing Her
Koval Highness in her wedding dross.
A wondrous piece of Gobelinc tapestry
hangs on the southern wall. His Ex
cellency's inkbottle is constructed from
the hoof of the charger that carried Lord
Clyde through the Crimean war. The
portraits of his Princess-wlte confront
the Laird of Lorne as he writes, and
between them stands a miniature of
Queen Victoria on ivory in a ruby-vel
vet open case. Inverary Castle holds
its own on the western wall, and the
India-ink drawing of the "Home Com
ing," done by Her Royal Highness, is
admirable in its every detail. There
are also paintings in oil from the brnsh
of the royal lady, displaying masterly
execution, Bonnie Scotland being espe
cially favored by the gifted artist. A
tabic in the centre of the room is dedi
cated to an immense morocco-bo urnd
volume, containing the various ad
dresses presented to His Excellency
upon assuming the reins of oftiee; while
a case of salmon-flies, flanked by boxes
of cartridges,tell their own tale of flood
and field. The drawing room Is a charm
mgly proportioned apartment, all dead
blues and dead grays. Here is a wealth
oi costly knick-knacks, an El Dorado of
bric-a-brac. The walls glow with oil
paintings and water-colors, the most
noticeable a life-size portrait of the
Princess Louise In her bridal robes;
"A Passage from Elaine," by Dore,
with Tennyson's words.Hn Do re's writ
ing, underneath; a half-lengtli of
Prince Albert, "Inverary Castle,"
" Glen Slnvra," " Windsor Castle,'
"Como," and "Venice." On entering
Her Royal Highness' boudoir the first
object that strikes the eye is the branch
of an apple tree in leai and fruit,trailed
against the panels of a white door. A
closer inspection reveals the "counter
feit presentment," for, in order to kill
the dead glaring white, the Princess
conceived the happy and aesthetic idea
of thus decorating the obnoxious portal.
This she has done with her own hand,
and the apples are ripe and rosy enough
to cause a seeoud fall. A large photo
graph of Her Majesty holds the place of
honor, the background being a superb
specimen of gobelinc. The escritoire
of the Princess, with its gorgeous blot
ter of red and the royal arms in gold,
is a prominent object; as is alsoa paint
ingof a brick wall covered with peaches,
finished by the Princess two days before
the fire at Inverary Castlo. Only think
of it! not a single plaque , but ?i con
servatory,one great tuft of ferns of the
most vivid green stands on the right
hand side of the fireplace and opposite
the blazing fire--it was twenty below
zero outside. Within hand-reacli of
caressing fauteuils, in dainty little
frames especially constructed, lay the
ieading English, French and German
newspapers of the latest date,while the
newest Fiencli novel and the last quar
terly occupied a gypsy table all to
themselves. A portrait of the late
Duchess of Kent is conspicuous, to
gether with the photographs (with
autographs appended) of the heir to the
throne and his beautiful and interesting
wife. Lord Lorne sets great store by
three engravings, representing Quebec
prior to its storming by Wolfe, picked
up by hira in St. James Street. The
frames, too, are remarkable from the
fact that they are constructed from the
timbers of a vessel sunk during the as
sault, and only recovered within the
last few months. Tiiere is an atmo
speere of supreme luxurious ease In the
bojdoir everything is in complete har
many, and wears the appearance of
being occupied. Evidences of the tes
thetic tastes of its royal mistress are
everywhere visible, from the dead-gold
panels and their blood-red flowers, to
the linnets and canaries warbling in
quaint and picturesque cages, from
choice and elegant literature in many
languages to the quantity of woman's
work lying on ottomans and lounges
and chairs that seem to invite one to
press them.
"That's the luncheon-gong,"merrily
exclaimed the Governor-General, add
ing, as we proceeded to the dining
room : "this is a hungry climate."
Portraits, after Winterhalter, of the
Queen and Prince Albert adorn the
walls of the dining-room at either end.
The buffets are of black walnut with
game subjects in relief; two specimens
of Van Goyen overhang sideboards
standing in recesses. Stuffed wild duck
shot by the Marquis hang on the centre
panels of the sideboards—very fine
birds, 100.
The Han-like Ape.
The life of Mafuka, who lived some
time at Dresden, Is among the most in of ape biographies, as the an
thropoid to the human mind. Know
ing how to unlock her cage with the
key, she stole and hid it for future use;
she took the carpenter's brad-awl and
bored holes with it through her own
table; when pouring drink from a jug
Into a cup, she would carefully stop
short of overfilling it. Her death had
an almost hum&n pathos; she threw
her arms around the neck of the direc
tor, kissed him, and then putting her
hand in his, lay down and died.
The Foundation "of Health
Without a substratum, a foundation oi
vigor, there can be no true health. The puny

Bitters supplies deficient energy by enabling

this is ths distribution of stores of vitality to
the remotest parts of the system, an increase
of muscular energy and the disappearance of

a doubt green grass is the best general
food for stock during the season of the
year that it can be eaten when it grows.
No stock-raiser or dairyman, however,
should rely entirely on his pastures
for supplying food for his animals from
April to November. If he does lie will
not realize from them all the prottts it
is poosible to obtain. The soil is some
times too wet and at other times too
dry to afford either a large quantity or
a good quality of grass. But cattle
relish a change of food, even when the
feed of pastures is at its best, llorses,
cows and sheep will eat a few pounds
of old hay each day, even when the
grass in the pastures is "up to their
eyes." All dairymen, especially those
who are engaged in butter-making,
find It to their advantage to give cows a
ration of dry corn meal, bran, or shorts
during the entire time they are kept in
pasture. They find that it increases
ihe ilow of milk, and keeps up the con
dition of the cows. The increase 111
the amount of the butter made more
than compensates for the outlay for the
dry food. Grass is the cheapest as
well as the best food to rely 011 in
fattening cattle, but they will gain
much faster if they are allowed some
grain duriug the time they are feeding
on grass. They will also be in a better
condition to gain when they are taken
up for the purpose of stall-feeding.
The change from green grass to hay
and grain is too violent for the good of
the animals. They should become ac
customed to eating and digestion dry
food during the surtimer. The time is
past when good farmers endeavor to
see 011 how small amount of food they
can keep their animals. They now de
v'se means to encourage them toeat ail
the food they will. The greater the
variety the more food will stock con
MANURES. —We observe that a large
portion of our farmers (111 some places
nearly all) draw out in spring the win
ter accumulations of their cattle yards.
It is spread as well as can be easily
done with a manure fork and then
plowed under. Much of it remains in
unbroken lamps, and when covered
with soil coutiuues thus in a mass un
derground, where months are icquired
lor it to become even partially diffused
through the soil, and it is never thor
oughly incorporated till the ground is
plowed and harrowed for the next
year's crop. The importance, there
lore of fine pulverization and of thor
ough inter-mixture is obvious. On
stubble ground it should be lirst well
broken to pieces with a brush harrow,
and then more or less mixed with the
soil with a common harrow, before
plowing under. Manure treated in
this way will tell most distinctly on the
eoming crops. Our own observations
show mat the value of manure is at
least doubled by such treatment. On
grass land, this inter-mixture with he
soil cannot be effected but if the pul
verization with the brush harrow can
be done quite early, the spriug rains
will wash the soluble parts. If the
manure is allowed to lie in lumps on
the grass, a part of the plants will get
none, and a part will have more than
they need. Manure which has been
drawn out and spread iu winter 011
either grass or stubble, should be brok
en finely with brush harrow as early
as the ground will admit, before sub
sequent plowing and harrowing.
Farmer* anxiously inquire how they
can obtain more manure. If they can
double the efficacy and value of what
they have, they will secure what will
be equal to a double amount in quan
FARM ACCOUNTS. —When a farmer,
at the end of the year, settles his store
account, pays his smitli bill, with that
his teacher, doctor and preacher—
which tax is generally In the rear—and
if anything is left Irom the amount
realized by the sale of his produce, that
amount is called tho profit; but it it
falls short them he has made nothing.
That is not a correct estimation of re
sults, for the bills have 110 connection
with the cost of planting, except the
smith bills. A merchant doing busi
ness on a capital of SIO,OOO, wanting to
obtaiH the result of the 3 T ear's opera
tion, takes an inventory ol the unsold
stock; the amount of available ac
counts, with money on hand after pay
ing his store rent, his clerk hire, inter
est on borrowed money and other ex
penses incidental to his business, but
does not include the expenses of sup
porting his fatniiy, which might, if ex
travagant, absorb all the profits,
though it might be from 30 f o 40 per
cent, on the capital. There are a large
number of farmers whose real estate,
with all the working stock and farming
implements, cannot be valued at more
than $3,000, yet by their profits realized
have raised, clothed and educated from
five to ten children, and to do this the}-
must make a profit of 30 to 50 per cent,
on the capital.

The best material for cleaning coat Col

pure benzine. The article is sold at
the principal drug stores in cities.
That used by painters Is not pure
enough, and has a very unpleasant odor
which the pure article has not, and the
Utile which It has soon disappears. If
this cannot be obtained, strong alcohol
(ninety live per centum) wltl clean
collars very well. A mixture of equal
parts of strong alcohol and water of
ammonia Is also used. The trouble
with all these liquids is tliat not enough
is used; a small quant li> only softens
and spreads the grease spots; they
should bo applied In sufficient quantity
and repeated to not only dissolve the
foreign matter, but to wash It out. (2).
