It would seem ns though enough had
already been said about the importance of
saving nil fertilizing material about the
arm, nnd especially that from the poultry,
molt experience has abundantly shown to
be worth as much as the artificial fertilizers
mt cot us three cents a pound and upward.
'cry few fanners would allow their wheat,
orn, or oats to he scattered and wasted as
much as their hen manure is, vet the latter
s worth as much ns the former, pound for
mud. Poultry should always have a tight,
ell-liglitcd and watni apartment for their
winter quarter.! and the roosts should be so
rranged that the droppings can be saved,
roe Ironi dirt and rubbish, llic best way is
to have a large tray under the roosts, made
f boards. This should bo cleaned out fre-
piently and sprinkled with plaster or dry
earth. The manure should be kept in boxes
or barrels, perfectly dry, and will then lose
none of its valuable properties. Neither
me nor ashes should ever bo mixed with it,
Inch is best done by adding about double
ic quantity of drv earth to the mixture,
mixing it well with the shovel, moistening it
moderately, and shoveling it over every
iree or four days until ready to tie. It
hoiild be moistened sufficiently to allow of
its being broken up and well mixed witli the
earth ; but when so moistened it is apt to
lent, and the shoveling over is necessary to
prevent this and the consequent loss of vnlu-
iblc properties. A handful of this compost
n a hill of corn will give it a powerful start.
A barrel of hen manure so comported will

The mantle of charity ought to be thrown
around the faults of our f.dlow-beincs.
'Thy sins be forgiven thee" should be the
answer for us to give lo those who have sin
ned against us and wish to be taken back to
our bosoms and be as they once were, pure
and sinless. Forgive and forget ; memory
will not let us forget, but it is in the power
f exalted human benevolence. Saddening
scenes will often press themselves upon our
ttcntion, even when we do the best to pre
ent them. So scenes of harmony between
ourselves and our human relations will arise
in the soul, notwithstanding tho presence
and influence of that principle of christian
charity which should inspire every human
soul with its divine effulgence. Yet memory,
however faithful to her trust will not prevent
us from being lenient towards the faults and
follies of others and to forgive their depar
ture from a true life.

CHASED IIY WOIiVES.
It is scarcely ono year since, tho events
which we relate occurred upon tho northern
steppes ol Russia, An Englishman, named
Iltirbert, had accepted an invitation from n
young nobleman to visit him nt his frigid
northern home, whero he promised him
among other Inducements some excellent
winter hunting, tho game being bean and
wolves. The Russian was of noble family,
and enjoyed an immense estate covering
thousand of acres among the wlldi of tho
steppe?. Within tho pacious mansion nil
was luxury nnd comfort, but outside the
long weary winters of tho north were gloomy
It was midwinter when tho young Eng
glihinan joined his Russian friend nt his
home. The rigor of tho season was cxtremo
nnd for the first tlmo in his life he realized
what the word winter reallysignified. How
ever, whin there is an abundance of pecuni
ary means, comfort can bo realized nearly
anywhere, nnd young Hurbcrt was never
more agreeably entertained than hero in this
frigid Bpot. Every modern luxury nnd
means of amusement were at hand, nnd his
friend, tho Count Sknrinski, was tho best of
companions, nnd a good billiard player, a
capital shot with a pistol or rifle, and in
short a highly accomplished man in all
games and sports of the'day.
On a clear, cold January day tho two gen
tlemen made their preparations fora hunting
excursion, and young Hurbcrt was some
what surprised to observe tho very elaborate
arrangement which was entered into ns it
regarded the supply of arms and amunition.
Considering that there wero but threo per
sons, himself and friend, and the driver .of
tho sleigh, he thought that the number of
double-barreled guns and revolvers, with the
stuir to put into them was singular.
There were six double-barreled guns and
as many revolvers, all loaded and laid hand
ily in tho bottom of tho vehicle, besides
each of the gentlemen carried a revolver in
a leather case at his waist, and a long hunt
ing knife. The driver also had a pair of
pistols in his leather belt, as well as a hunt
ing knife. y
"We arc a moving arsenal," remarked the
Englishman, p'easantly, as lie regarded
"Yes; in hunting in Russia we sometimes
come in such close quarters that there is
little time for loading."
"Ah I did not think of that."
"It is the quick and sure hand only that
is safe where wild animals sometimes come
in large numbers."
"What will probably be our game to
"We will try for bears."
"Arc they plenty 1"
"It is not so easy to find them now ns it
will be in the spring They keen stowed
away mostly all winter."
Two, large, handsome horses were har
nessed to the sleigh, both so full of life and
spirits as to require the whole attention of
their experienced driver, who remarked that
they would get some of the fire worked out
of them before the close of the day. At the
suggestion of the count, n third horse, or
leader, making what is familiarly termed a
spike team, was added to tho sleigh, as he
remarked that they might have a long pull
of it. Thus equipped, with some luncheon
in a basket, and well covered with furs to
exclude the biting cold, the count and his
Lnglish friend started off on the hunt.
They sought a somewhat famous locality
in a well wooded neighborhood as the first
point of search, but finding no signs of game
here, they started for one still farther uway,
but with like want of success. Indeed, it
became pretty clear that bears were not
abroad, and that there was not much chance
of their getting bight of any. In the mean
time they had come a long distance, the day
was already drawing to a cloc, and the
count gave tho word to turn tho horses
toward home. Tho party paused, however,
to give the horses each four quarts of cracked
corn, and also to partake of their own lunch.
Half an hour sufficed lor this, and, men and
beasts refreshed, then commenced tho home
The sun had set, but the pale face of the
moon was creeping up into tho sky, and
reflected from tho shining surlaco of the
snow, all was as light as day.
"We shall probably knock over a wolf or
two as the evening comes on," said tho
count, "hut I iuu sorry not to show you some
Scarcely had the words left his mouth
when a iioi.-e behind tiiem attracted the at
tention of both, and turning they saw a
small pack of wolves, rendered desperato by
hunger, pursuing the sleigh. Ihey came
nearer and nearer. As they were in so large
a number twenty or more the count told
the driver to keep up his speed, nnd he
would pick oil' one at a time. They were
soon within reach, and, lifting one of tho
guns, he fired each of tho barrels, and two
wolves dropped in tltcir tracks.
Then followed the singular scene which is
instinctive with these wild animals. As
soon as one is wounded and rendered help
less, his companions fall upon him and
devour his body at once. These creatures,
crazed with hunger, tore tin) carcasses to
pieces in an incredibly short time, fighting
over the body to secure a mouthful, nud
were soon rushing alter the sleigh with
renewed ferocity, excited by tlio tasto of
blood. The young Englishman soon tried
his hand and dropped threo of the wolves nt
two shots, one having evidently gone entirely
through the body of an animal and entered
that of another before its Impetus was lost,
The same sceuo was repeated which wo
have just described, but tho pack had in
creased by the addition of another score of
animals, which had been attracted by, the
smell or noiso of those already in the field
It began to look serious, and the count
remarked that ho had no Idea the wolves
were in such numbers this season.
They llrcd again, each timo killing a wolf;
but that retarded tho pursuers but foe ft few
momenta so many starving mouths devour
ed tho wounded creatures instantaneously.
In the meantime tho horses were kept at
steady and lively gait. It would not answer
to Uic them up by n desperate ilasu ot speed;
lor if they were to give out, the travelers
would bo torn to pieces in five minutes, as
well as the horses themselves.
"Keep a steady hand, Ivan" said tho
count to tho driver. "Don't Iret the team
but keep them well up to work. We liav
u long rout beforo us,"
"Now, .Mr, Hurbcrt, we shall give you
cliauco to show your marksmanship, Here
comes nuotker puck ou our flank,"
"Twico ns largo In numbers," said tho
"True. You blaze away nt them when
they get near enough I sco you arc nn
excellent shot and I will keeptlicso fellows
behind busy with each other's carcasses."
Curo was taken to load tho guns ns fast ns
fired, for fear that the time might be near nt
hand when they could not spend timo for
thnt purpose. Tlio wolves had not yet got
near enough to uso tho revolvers upon them.
More than a dozen wolves had been shot
nnd devoured up to this timo, serving to
keep them back by the consequent delays
each time that two of them fell by the un
erring aim of tho count and his companion.
Tlie largo pack that came down in n quar
tering direction were now quito near, and
tho Englishman aimed nud fired. It was
Impossible to miss thorn, they wcro so closo
together, and two instantly dropped, rolled
over, and stained tho snow with their blood.
The pack halted and toro them in pieces,
while tho sleigh kept on its steady course
throwing them far behind, and they joined
those immediately in tho rear. Tho crowd
of ravenous and ferocious creatures now
numbered sixty or more, two or threo fresh
wolves joining them every few moments
from diflercnt directions.
Tho count kept busy with his guns but
said not a word. Tho expression upon his
features, however, was one of considerable
anxiety, nnd ho was careful to re-load at
Tho wolves now spread themselves out, all
the while on tho run, in the shape of a half
moon or crescent, so that the two ends of
tho pack, now numbering a hundred at least,
nearly came on a range witli the sidc3 of
the sleigh, though somo rods distant.
Tlie count and his companion kept busy,
nnd at each fire of the double-barrel guns, a
couple of wolves wcro suro to drop, when nil
tho pursurers would stop for a few minutes
to devour their comrades, and again com
mence the chase.
It was impossible in tho partial darkness to
tell where the additions to the mad creatures
camo from, but that tho pack was rapidly in
creasing was very manifest, and in order to
keep them from coming near enough to leap
upon the sleigh and Its occupants, and the
two gentlemen were compelled to firo rap
idly, and to distribute their shots all along
the curving line of tho pmraucrs.
"This is terrible," said tlio count at last.
"Is there no end lo their numbers ?" ns he
reloaded bis gun after killing a couple of
"I suppose they would devour us instantly,
if they reach us," said the Englishman.
"Undoubtedly I" replied the count.
"Hold pour revolver ready. They arc
coming close now, and wc must blaze away
all nt once, dropping ns many as possible,
and this will give them a good check, at
least for a few minutes."
The horses seemed to realize the exigency
of tho case, and though panting severely at
the long-continued exertion, still kept press-
ng forward at a swift pace. Though more
than forty wolves had been shot, and de-
oured by their comrades, it seemed that the
taste of blood had only fired the appetites
tho rest of tlio pack, the numbers of
hieh had increased continually until more
mn a hundred and fifty were now howling
nfter the sleigh.
As the count had said, they wero drawing
ery near now, and the guns were rapidly
cmited into their ranks. ICach drew his
revolver for closo action, tho gentlemen
taking a revolver in each hand just in time
ifty open mouths were besido tho sleigh on
thcr side, and a hundred behind I
"Now, altogether," said the count; "let
them havo it right and left."
Ivan, who was perfectly cool, fired his six
charges with deliberate though rapid aim,
ropping a half-dozen wolves, while the
count with both hands fired down their
iroats on his side, and the Englishman,
though with less coolness, yet with equal
fleet, shot down the ravenous beasts on his
de. More than n dozen of them rolled
over on their sides, while the rapid dis
charges of the revolvers nearly together,
btarted the horses to fresh .exertion and they
separated from tho wolves, who paused to
ovour the bodies bleeding upon the snow.
Tlio delay among the pursuing beasts, who
fought wildly over tho bodies which they so
quickly tore in pieces, gave the party in the
leigh a breathing moment, though a brief
one. 1 ho tlmo was Improved to reload nil
the revolvers and tho guns, while the horses
were eased a little in their rapid gait in order
to save their strength for a crisis which was
doubtless to follow. It was four miles at
least to the shelter of his own grounds, as
the count was compelled to admit. Whether
they could keep tho ferosious beasts at bay
ong enough to travel that distance was a
The pack now turned again to pursue the
"Thauk heaven for this respite, short as it
s," said the count, drawing a long breath,
and disposing tho guns for ready use, now
The young Englishman aid little. Ho
md felt the hot breath of these wild crea
ture-s in his very face, nnd tho frightful situ
nttoti was something appalling. However
he braced himself to do his best in fighting
the terrible enemy, wiio wcro again drawing
closer and closer to tho tleigh.
Onco mora tho count nud his companion
began dropping them two nt a time, so dense
were their numbers that every shot told, but
notwithstanding these brief checks they
were gaining on tho sleigh, their numbers in
no perceptible degrco lessened, though so
many had been killed. Indeed, mora now
joined them, coming; from a piece of wood
which they wero now passing. The horses
labored painfully. They had been terribly
tried by tho long and continuous drag upon
"Our revolvers once mqre," said tho count
as he emptied tho lust loaded gun Into tho
savago enemy. "It is to bo a closo nction
again. Get ready your revolver, Ivfti."
' "It is all right count."
"Lay your knife loose, for it may como tu
that," said the count.
On camo tho legion of howling dcvil,
their eyes gleaming in tlie dim light, and
onco more they wero upon tho sleigh.
"Rhino nwny together," said the count.
As before wolf niter wolf rolled over
bleeding upon the white snow crust, but
blood only seemed to madden the army of
ravenous beasts crowding forward, nud now
the count having, emptied his two revolvers,
took his lung knife, ami slashed right mid
left, giving death wounds at every stroke, to
the wolves that crowded one upou another,

until ho had almost Iot his breath. Hut
such a hecatomb of slaughtered creatures lay
nil nrotind that the wholo pack was checked,
while tho Mcigh, dragged slowly on by tlio
drooping horses, crept nwny from them.
Tho count had only been saved from tho
teeth of those on his side by the thickness
of his fur clothing, while tho Englishman
had only used tbo revolver, two extra ones
of which he managed lo get from tho rack
in tlio bottom of the sleigh.
He camo to his coolness and courage at

They had only time to load their guns
beforo tho howling pack started for them

They were still two miles from home.
"Tho horses nro doing nil they can ?"

Tho intelligent driver did as he was bid.
The horse died lustantly. The driver was
back in his scat and tho sleigh was moving
homeward again The count now turned
onco more and emptied gun fter gun into
tho crowd that stopped nbout tho horse,
while thg Englishman reloaded.
"Goodl another mile nnd wc are safe,"
said tho count.
Rut the horses could hardly move faster
than a smart walk, now and then trotting a.
few rods. Thev wero completely used up.
Tlio arms were onco more all loaded, and
ono by one, then by twos, nt last altogether,
the wolves left the carcass of tho horse. Ah I
those precious moments in which they had
been thus engaged had been tho salvation
of tho party in the sleigh. Tho houso was
in sight. Tho horses mado an extra effort
at the cheering view beforo them. The
count stood up and delivered a dozen shots
one after another among the wolves, causing
still further check to their progress, and the
servants in the house, aroused by tho noise,
threw wide the gates, through which tho
horses crept and fell at once in tho snow.
The gates wero closed, and the well-armed
household poured volley after volley among
the ravenous creatures until there wcro nono
left lo devour the wounded The horses
were carefully rubbed and tended, and by-and-by
judiciously fed, so that they wcro
soon in a way to recover their expended
energies. But how about the two men?
Immediately on entering the ground, be
hind tlie high walls of which they were
safe, the count sent for brandy and hot
water. The Englishman had fainted at last
from excitement and exertion. He poured
out a half tumbler with tome honey, and
made Ivan drink it ns hot as possible but to
his companion he gave it clear, and in small
ipoonfuls at a time, until lie brought him
quite to himself again.
His own nerves and system seemed mado
of iron, and lie was quito ns well as ever in
a few moments after entering the house.
"It was that poor horso that saved us after
all," said the count, as they sat smoking nt
last before tlie broad, well-filled firo place.
"And it was providential that yon put
him into the team after it came up to the
door," said his friend.
Then it was explained to the visitor that
this was n remarkable instance. The heavy
snows had cut off all sources of food from
the wolves, nnd had thus rendered them
ravenous. At most seasons of the year,
they were very shy, and were hunted witli
perfect safety, it being only necessary to
avoid them niter nightfall, when they were
apt to herd in pack, in order to fight such
animals as were Miperior to themselves, .
unless attacked by numbers at tlio same
Young Hurbcrt never forgot that fight
with wolves upon the steppes of Russia.
Two men had a quarrel in a public house.
They adjourned outside to settle the dispute.
The first man seized a stone and let fly at
tlie head of his opponent, who dipped, and
missed tho stone, which went through nn
expensive plate-glass window, and did much
damage. An Irish magistrate was called
upon next morning to determine which of
the two should pay tho cost. Tho evidence
clearly showed that the aim was a good one,
and that if the second man had not dipped
is head ho would have been struck. "There
fore," said the magistrate, "he must pay tho
damages, as it is certain the first man didn't
ntend to injure the window, and tho window
would not have been injured if h had not
been for the act of the second man."
