It was his vacation, anil they were
seated under the branches of a great ap
ple tree, contented with each other's so
ciety aud silently eommuuing with na
ture. His arm had inadvertently found
its way about her slender form, and her
head had gradually found a resting place
upon his manly padded shoulder. They
were dreaming of the happy days to
come, when together they should walk
over the varied pathway of life, when
she suddenly turned her meltiug eyes
upon him and half whispered ; "Shall

Popular Tints In London Fashion*.
Copper-color is just now in great de
mand as a fashionable tint. It is mixed
with brown or black, and worn in walk
ing-dresses. The copper-color is much
less in quantity than the brown or black.
The color itself is suitable only to a bru
nette with a good complexion, but can be
made becoming even to a blonde by a
skillful mingling with chocolate, brown
or black. We have seen a velvet dress of
rich shade, called cigar-brown, trimmed
sparingly with a copper-color satin, the
brown velvet bonnet being trimmed with
copper-colored lace aud feathers. A cos
tume of black satin merveilleux was
trim met! with copper-colored cord and
l>eads of the same reddish-orange tint.
A wreath of autumn leaves, shaded from
I wile vellow through gradations of orange
tinted with red,encircled the small black
chip bonnet. Venetian red is another
favorite color. Beautiful it itself, it
needs extreme care to combine it with
For evening wear' old gold on amber
is admirable for this purpose. Even
young girls can now wear this combina
tion, which at one time would have been
considered suitable only for chaperons.
Lemon and cream color also look well in
connection with Venetian red, the pur
plish shade in which forbids the proxi •
jjiity of any very decided tint.
FRKMXG HURRIED. --Probably Rothiug
tires oue so much as feeling hurried.
When in the early morning the day's
affairs press on one's attention beforehand,
and there comes the wonder how in the
world everything is to be accomplished,
when every interruption is received im
patiently, and the clock is watched in dis
tress as its moments flit past, then the
mind tires the liody. We arc wrong to
drive ourselves with whip and spur in this
way. Each of us is promised strength for
the day, and we must not wear ourselves
out l,y crowding two days' tasks into one.
If only we can keep cool and calm, not
allowing ourselves to le flustered, we shall
lie less wearied when we have reached the
even-tide. The children have leen frac
tious, the servants trying, the friend we love
may fail to visit us, the letter we expect may
not arrive, but if we can preserve our trail •
quiliiy of soul sud of demeanor, we shall
get through everything creditably. Especi
ally is this good advice for warm weather.
Who feels the most heat? Who is most ex
hausted and prostrated by its severity? Why
the person who flies from fan? to lee-water
bemoaning herself, who changes her dress
a halt/lozen times a day, who laments that
it is so warm, and watches the thermome
ter witli despairing certainty that it never
was so hot before; who, in short, inten
sifies her own discomfort and adds to that
of others by constant thinking of it. Wo
men who can stay in-doora have the ad
vantage of men iu warm weather. It
is wise to air a house thoroughly in the
early morning, and keep it, as tar as possi
ble, closed and darkened through the mid
dle of the day. Dispense with a great
tire iu the kitchen range, and let the cook
ing be moderate. Fruits, salads, ami
simple, easily-cooked cereals are the prop
er foods for summer. A gas-stove is an
economv and a comfort. Find the coolest
place to sit, go quietly about your work
and make as little fuss as may be about its
being warm. lx't the children have fre
quent baths, and do not encumber theui
with heavy clothing. Common sense and
an easy mind help one over most of life's
rough places with little fnetiou.
RENEWING GRASS LAND.— When grass
land gets run out, as the phrase goes, the
best way to renew it unless it is very rocky
or rough land, is to break it up, ami, if it
is not available or desirable for cultivation,
to manure heavily and leseed. This month,
after the hay is cut, is the .best time for
breaking up sod. It can then be manured,
thoroughly harrowed aud re-seeded with
grass, or sown with rye. the last of the
month. Iu sowing grass seed, only those
kinds should be sown together that mature
together. Herds-grass and red top go
well together, but orchard grass, June
grass and the other early varieties, should
be sown by themselves. Twelve quarts
of herds-grass and three pecks of red top
make a very good seeding for an acre. If
herdsgrass is sown alone on very heavy
laud, it should be sown more thickly, so
ihat it will not grow too rank aud coarse.
Orchard giass should be sown very thickly,
or it will grow in clumps. From a bushel
aud a half to two bushels of seed to the
acre gives a good result.
THE milking qualities of cows are the
results of the arts of man. The cow in
its natural state gives as much milk as will
keep a calf about two months, then for
four months as much as will partially sus
taiu it after that it takes care of itself. On
the other band, the cow which art has pro
duced gives as much milk for four mouths
in the year as will support four or five
calves, and for five months more as much
as would support three, two and one.
Thus we find that almost every breed has
its milking strains. The Durham has its
milkiug qualities ju9t iu proportion as man
has induced them. The Hereford is also
a noted beef-producing breed; but there
are strains which are deep milkers. But
man has not .succeeded so well in conver
ting butter and milk-producers into heavy
beef animals. The Ayrshire, the Jerseys,
the Guernseys, are not easily converted
into beef animals ; yet it may be said that
man changes the characteristics of animals
almost at will.
BUTTER EASILY SPOILED. --Of all the
products of the farm, butter is the most
liable to be tainted by noxious odors float
ing in the atmosphere. Our people laid
veal in the cellar from which a little blood
flowed out. and was neglected until it had
commenced to smell. The result was that
a jar of butter we were packing smelled
and tasted like spoiled beef. We know
of an instance where there is a pond of
filthy, etagucnt water a few hundred feet
from the house, from which an offensive
effluvium would he borne on the breeze
directly to the milk-room when the wind
was in a certain direction, the result of
wLich was that the cream and butter wou'd
taste like the disagreeable odor coming
from the pond. As soon as the pond was
drained there was no more damaged butter.
It is remarkable how easily butter is
IN young horses, sweeny or wasting of
the mufcles of the shoulder is often a con
sequence of unsteady pulling with an ill
fitting collar. In such a case relieve the
animal from work, and apply for some
time, once or twice a day, a portion of
equal parts of tincture of canthandes and
oil of turpentine. The contents of the
bottle should lie shaken while applying the
same. Liberty outdoors, on pasture, will
be of additional benefit. Subsequently,
give only light work in breast harness or
in a soft-padded, well-fitting collar, until
the animal becomes used to pulling.
CERTAIN interesting facts have been noted
by M. Delaunay with regard to the in
fluence of etrychnine as a poison, and the
state of the animal operated on. Strych

strong frogs lather than weak ones ; frogs
well fed than those which had been lasting;
frogs that had been in vigorous exercise
than those which had been at rest, and
frogs which had been exercised after
injection than those which were not.
Further, a frog when hung by the leg
showed the influence of the poison sooner
than a frog suspended by the head ; an
intact frog than one that had bean bled,

A FARMER who has had much experience
in draining lands says that when quicksand
or unsound ground occurs drains should he
cut wide and in some cases deeper, with
their sods trampled down along the bottom,
before either tiles or stone conduits are in
troduced. Fods thus placed always admit
water freely, and the subtratum, in conse
quence very soon becomes solid.
IT has been well demonstrated that in
the case of all live stock, a clean and open
condition of the skin is conducive to
health and economical feeding, and no
labor in the barns is more profitably ex
pended than that which is employed in a
thorough cleaning, not only of horses but
also of cattle.

PI.AIN* TYOD. — An appetising repast
does not necessarily depend upnu expen
sive viands : but it does depend upon the
thought and care and skill in the prepara
tion of the cheapest dishes. 1 can imagine
a young couple with a very limited income
entertaining two or three fiiemls most
pleasantly, if only the hostess and cook—
perhaps her maid-of-all-work would take
counsel together and market wisely, and
then devise and carry out a dainty wir/oq
consisting of soup, flsh, meat and pasti v.
Excellent soup can be made from ox
check, and the tender meat eaten after
ward with haricot lieatis and gravy-—a
toothsome dish. 1 think one reason of the
coarse, unsatisfactory dinners we often see
in middle-class 'houses is the falsj notion
that "made dishes", as they are called,
are expensive, and that the most econom
ical food is "good plain roast and boiled."
This ia quite a mistake, ami either arises
from, or leads to. an amount of careless
laziness in our kitchens that is un\n>wn m
the humblest French establishment, where
the first business of the day is to go to mar
ket to choose suitable materia'fl for the da> 's
consumption and not to shrink all respon
sibility by entering a leg of mutton or a
surloiu of beef, weighing about ten or
twelve pounds, and which, of course, is
expensive. A clever house-keeper sixm
finds out that the cheaper cuts of good
meat make dishes as dainty and nice when
properly treated, as the moef expensive ;
but they wont cook themselves, or permit
of biing put down to the fire aud luen left
till they are roasted. They must be del
icately and carefully prepared ; and cook

the vegetables a nice brown ; lay the ven

steak, n>t quite so much as will cover the
venison, sprinkle some salt over it and
braise it slowly for four hours, but that
will depend on the venison—it must be
braised until tender, but not to let the
tenderness out of it. When done, take the
venison out, and strain the stock it has
been braised in, and put the stock on to
reduce quickly, taking care to have all the
fat skimmed off the at >ck. Have ready
some well finished brown sauce, in which
two tablespoonfuls of currant jelly and
two glasses of port wine have been mixed *,
then put in the reduced stock ; mix well,
and let it boil up; pour the sauce over the
venison, and serve with French beans

leaf, and through to the front again just
above where it was last put through.
When the star is worked, edge it round

feeling that the information conveyed will be of
material benefit to many of your readers. One
of our oldest citizen*, Captain C. W. Boynton, the
Government Light-hwu*e keeper at this point, is
probably one of the oldest seamen in America,
having 'sailed twenty-six years on salt water.
After this forty-six years' service his eyesight
tailed him and he kept the Light at Chicago until
the Government built the Gross Point Light here,
when he was transferred. While seated in rnv
store this morning the Captain volunteered the
following written statement: "This is to certify
that I have been afflicted with rheumatism for
twenty (joi years, l*>th in mv side and limits. 1
atn happy to say that,after using less than two bot
