A HURAIi OAIIT VISIT.
I.kt them tnlk or llio bliss of n chariot,
With four pinticlng horses before,
With n liveried conchmnn to drive It,
Ami 11 lackey to open tlic door;
Thesott yielding down or lis cushions
May enso imd enjoyment Impart,
Hut for fun nml for frolic there's nothing
Mko n rough, wholesome rldo In tho curt.
Mcm'ry rnrrles mo back to tli.it mornlns
When, hooded nnd shawled for n rlile,
Wo entered tho curt (wllh n donkey)
And im escort to walk by our side;
How funny to sco tho fair driver,
When ronxlng tho crenturo to go,
Willi " (Jet up, sweet donkey, Rood follow,
You'll enrry us safely, I know."
Through tho old solemn wood wo slow wandered,
I.lued thick with It ecntlnel trees,
And heard tho low musical breathing
Of lenses played upon by tho breezol
Wo Brew sad an wo heard that sweet music,
A shado seemed to full on tho heart,
Ami wo truly beeamo sentimental,
Whllo ridlng'n,bout In tho curt.
Tell mo not pleasuro dwells In the hall-room,
Whero vanity stalks In Its prldo,
Where deceit nml conlompt, lllto twin slslcrs,
Companioned, are seen stdo by side ;
Whero tho bodleo or silver nnd sntln
Conceals Iho deep rankling durl,
Whero bright eyes, llko Jewels, aro flashing,
But hu eyo sees tho grlcf-shadcd heati,
Tell mo not In tho proud halls of fashion
Thai gayoty only la found,
Thai tho polka's tho summit of pleasure,
And there's bliss In tho wall?, round j
I would freely glvo up tho enlnyiuent
Tho wultz or quadrlllo can Impart
Tor n bright siinny heaven abovo me,
And n rldo through tho wootls lu a cart.
When they talk of the bliss of a chariot,
Willi four horses prancing before,
I will think of that quiet old donkey, '
Whose pace, though so slow, was bo suro;
When they tall: ot tho downy silk cushions
That Riich happiness teem to Impart,
Remembrances will point to tho morning
When wo took n rough rldo In tho cart.
"Massachusetts Hams" writes :
" I euro and smoko ilfty thousand toone
hundred thousand pieces per year, and
know my business. Meat cured in pickle
mailo of water Is not as good, and only
used bceaubO moro profitable and less
laborious. 'The flavor of cured meals
depends mainly upon tho kind of molas
Hes used. Tho best temperature is forty
tlcgrces, frozen meat will not cure, and
ir abovo fifty degrees will be liablo to
taint. For ono hundred pounds of meat
take eight pounds of salt, ono quart best
molasses or two pounds of sugar, one
fourth pound saltpetre, two ounces
ground alum ; mix nnd rub on the fleshy
sido of the meat, placed in pans so ns to
keep all -tho mixture; repeat tho rub
bing every three days, rubbing in thor
oughly. For largo pieces, and cold
weathor, sixty days will bo required ; if
mild weather, fifty days, and fifteen days
less for small pieces. Tho skin and flit of
hams should bo cut clean from tho face,
03 far down as the second Joint, to allow
the salt to enter. Tho receipt for keei
ingmeat, viz. : In ashes, given in Septem
ber JffnViiMiWsfi, is good. Smoko is of no
benefit ; it is only a quick way of drying.
Most people would prefer drying with
out smoke. If you tunokc, uso only
walnut or yellow birch wood, or mahog
ony saw-dust. Bo sure your meat is
well cooled off beforo salting; ten days
niter killing is better than ten hours."
Thk nursury man heels-ln his trees or
