SUNSHINE ON TIIE IHLLS.
I stooh upon the lilll, wlion Ilcnvcn'j wide nrch
Wn ((lotion wltli tho uti' returning march,
Ami woods wero brightened, nnd soft gales
Went forth to Ul the min-clnd vnle.
Tho clouds were fnrbencnth me! tntlie.1 In IljtTit,
Tliey gathered mld-wny round the wooded height,
And In their fudlnit glory Rhone
Ltko liosli In bitttlo overthrown,
An many n iilnnncle. with nhlftlnpr alance,
Through tho gray mist thrusts up Its shattered
lance,
And rocklna on the elln" was left
The dark lilno blasted, bare, and cleft.
Tho veil of cloud was lifted, and below
Glowed the rich valley, and tho river's flow
Was darkened by tho forest's shade,
Or glistened In tho whlto cascade;
Where upward, In tho mellow blush of day,
The noisy bittern wheeled his spiral wuy.
I heard the distant waters dash,
I saw tho current whirl and flash
And richly, by the blue lako's silver beach,
Tho woods wero bending with a silent reach.
Then o'er the vale, with gentlu swell,
The music of tho vlllago bell
Camo sweetly to the echo-giving hills.
And the wild horn, whoso voice the woodland fills,
Was ringing to the merry shout
That faint nnd far the glen sent out,
Where, answering to the sutWen shot, thin smoke,
Through thlck-lcavcd branches, from tho illngi
broke.
If thon art worn and hard beset
With sorrows that thou wouldit forget;
If thou wouldst read a lesson that will keep
Thy heart from fainting and thy soul from bleep.
Go to the woods nnd hills 1 No tears
' Sim the sweet look, that Nature wears.

The ntmlerpcst.
This terriblo scourge still holds nl
most undisputed sway among tho herds
of Great Britain, so far n.s It lias pro
grossed. Tho latest reports give over
thirteen thousand cases per week, ns
known bv tho Government ofllcers. Tho
Inoculntion nnd other remedies prov
ineffectual. Eirorts to prevent Its spread
have been imperfect nnd weak, while
tho cupidity of some individuals, and
the heedlessness and ignorance of other
has spread the seeds of tho contagion far
and wide. Thero was nbuntlant knowl
edge in tho country how to stop tho dis
ease, but their Government was nfraid to
act with energy, and all that 'has been
done la sheertriiling. In the year 1857 tho
Itoyal Agricultural Society of England,
with tho Agricultural Societies of Scot
land nnd Ireland, nnd receiving tho co
operation of the Foreign OIHco of the
Government, sent Professor Simonds, of
tho Koyal Veterinary College, to the
Continent, to investigate this disease.
The very fullest opportunities wero af
forded him, and ho made an extended
nnd valuabla report. The conclusions
at which ho iirrlvcd nro of especial In
terest now that we, as a nation, are In
exnetly the same condition that England
was then.
He found tho disease restricted to com
paratively narrow limits this sldo of tho
Steppes of Russia, from whence it occa
sionally escaped in tho ordinary course
of cattlo traffic into Austria, Hungary,
Gallcia, and Poland, where it is usually,
ns thej'say, "stamped out" being sur
rounded by a military cordon, and all
traffic in cattlo stopped within or out
from tho district thus shut up from the
rest of tho world. This practice is so
perfectly effectual where tho disease Is
understood that Mr. Simonds regarded
it as entirely improbable that the dis
ease would ever atlllct tho English farm
er. Ho says: "No fear need bo enter
tained that this destructive pest will
reach our shotes. Its present great dis
tunco from us would of itself ull'ord a
fair amount of security ; but when we
tuld to this that no cattlo llnd their way
thenco to tho English market ; and that in
tho event of the dheaso spreading from
Gallcia it would have to break through
hundreds of military cordons, one-after
the other, before it could possibly reach
tho u-estcrn side of tho German btates
nnd moreover, that for years past com
merce has been unrestricted, with re
gard to tho importation of skins, hides
bones, etc., of cattlo from Russia and
elsewhere, all alarm, we believe, may
ceaso with reference to its introduction
into tho British Isles."
This is very instructive showing us
our great danger and warning us not to
rest in fancied security, ns did our broth
cr farmers of England, until herd after
herd is swept away. It does not prove
that this cordon principle is not effect I ve
but only that some carelessness allowed
tho escapo of diseased animals, or in
Bomo way tho transit of tho disease fron
tho countries wliero it is domesticated
to tho coast, and to England. Tho fact
remains, that perfect Insolation of the
diseased and infected cattle, and of all
persons, animals, nnd things which hav
been in close proximity to them, or their
excretions, is perfect security ngainst the
disease. And wo want tho Legislatures
to empower tho Executives of the differ
ercnt States to act with all power and
promptness, should any case occur i
this country, even to tho using of the
militia. American Agriculturist,
X,oug Cut Feci better ttinn Short.
A correspondent reasons as follows
When a boy wo wero taught to cut
straw and hay for horses ns short ns pos
eible, nnd tho reason assigned was that
horses would eat it sooner, nnd with
greater avidity. In nfter life wo ob
served tlmt it was not so good for the
horses. Straw and hay cut ono inch
long, for animals that do not chew tho
cud, is far better that if cut to one-fourth
inch. When straw is cut very short
much of it goes into the stomach without
being crushed. For this reason a great
deal of it does not digest, ihough tl
Juices of tho stomach would liavo di
solved it, lind it been properly mastica
ted. When n liorso begins to eat tho
wdlvnry glands send a stream of saliv
into tho animal's mouth, tomolsten and
eoften tho feed, nnd to preparo It for more
easy digestion. Therefore it is impor
tnnt that every plcco of straw or hay
should bo crushed nnd macerated bo
twecn tho teeth nnd tho saliva thorough
Jy mingled with whatover is eaten be
fore it Is swallowetl. As saliva is a pow
crftil solvent, tho organic structure of nil
feed should bo broken up by tno teeth
nnd the salivannd till tliosinall fragments
brought in coutuct with the liquid.
