THE FABMEB'8 WIFE.
Up with tho birds In the early morning
Tho dew-drop glows like ft precious gem j
Beautiful tints In tho skies aro dawning,
But slio's never a moment to look nt them
The men nro wanting their breakfast early i
She must hot linger, sho must not wait i
For words that nro sharp and looks that aro surly,
Aio what men glvo when meals aro late.
Oli, glorious colors the clouds aro turning,
If sho would but look over hilts nnd trees i
But hero nro tho dishes nnd hero Is tlio churning
Thoso things nlways must J icld to these.
Tho w orld is filled with tho wlno ot beauty,
If she could but pauso nnd drink It In i
But pleasuro sho says must wait for duty
Neglected work Is committed sin.
Tho day grows hot, and licr hands grow weary i
Oh for an hour to cool her head,
Out with tho birds and wlnd3 sO cheery I
But sho must gel dinner nnd bako her bread.
Tho busy men In tlio hay-tleld working,
It they saw her Bitting Tfltli Idle hand,
Woirld think her lazy, and call It shirking,
And she never could mako them understand.
They do not know that the heart within her
Hungers for beauty nnd things sublime ;
They only know that thoy want their dinner
Plenty of It, Mid Just "on time."
And after tho sweeping and churning and baking,
And dinner dishes aro nil put by,
She sits nnd bows, though her head Is aching,
Till time for supper and "cTiorcs" draw nigh.
Her boys at school must look like others,
She says, as sho patchas their frocks nnd hoso,
For tho world Is quick to censuro mothers
For tho least neglect of their children's clothes
Her husband comes from tho field of labor,
He gives no pralso to Ills weary wlfo ;
She's dono no luoro than has her neighbor;
TIs tho lot of all in country life.
But after the strlfo and weary tusslo
With Ufa H done, and Bho lies at rest;
Tho nation's brain and heart and muscles
Her sons and daughters shall call her blest.
And I think tho sweetest Joy of heaven,
Tho rarest bliss ot eternal II te,
And tho falreet crown ot nil, will be given
1'nto tho way-worn farmer's wife.

THE MISSING JEWELS.
BY r.TTli: ROOERS.
"It hath a plan, but no plot.
Life hath none."
Anno IJardulpli was not very voiith
ful, nor was sho particularly handsome;
and sho was housekeeper for tho ailing
This invalid lady resided in a fine
wooden house of many rooms, through
which ran a wido hall with walls of
Ponipeiian red, and a gilt edged ceiling
that was painted in soino curious and
uncertain tint of pale, pinkish brown.
Tlio lloor was tessellated in brown and
red, and tho dark, sarved doors opened
upon .1 columnar portico with broad,
brown steps leading down upon a great
lawn flanked with thick trees of beech
Across tho greening lawn in tho sweet
yellow April sunshine, walked Anne
Bardulpli a slim, straight woman with
regular and sovero features, and won
derfully largo eyes of darkest gray. She
had an abundance of neatly-arranged
dark hair, and sho was neatly attired
in a serviceable suit of some clinging,
dull bluo fabric, with collar ami cults
of linen while, prim and immacu
late. Two young men coming upon tho
portico saw her an interesting and not
unlovely figure moving under tho grim,
"Tho new housekeeper of inadamo
pleases you her you admire, perhaps,"
one remarked rather qui.zingly.
"Would you suggest that Miss Uar
dulph may not merit admiration t" re
turned the other evasively, nnd with
some perceptible irritation.
"I now do nothing suggest," was the
protest, in sharp foreign necents. "I
hero am conio to seo much, to much
think; but I nothing say until the how
say you to it? till tho ono exposure
Tony Dorinan smoked thoughtfully,
for several silent minutes. Finally ho
tossed away his cigar and turned toward
"D'Uazelly," ho began pleasantly,
"you are here ostensibly only as my
guest and intimate friend "
"On tho what do j ou call tho ostensible
Iimposonot," interrupted Louis D'Uaz
elly, quickly and proudly. "I but the
detective am tho servitor hired of
madainc to her diamonds of value find,
and tho thief to discover."
"Yes, I know,"interposed tlio young
gentleman, "but. I have become awnro
of your worth as r. man. and I really
regard you-as 11 friend. No friend will
over bo more warmly welcomed to my
homo than you. If I did not feel like
this I should not bo likely to confess to
you that I havo been refused by Miss
13ardulpli for whom "ho supplement
ed gently and with hesitation "I fancy
you havo a tender preference, even
though you would appear to disparago
Tho young Frenchman winced, and
in his bright black eyes was an expres
sion of trouble nnd distrust, as ho (raz
ed steadily toward tho stately pities
that loomed in sharp spires against tho
sweet bluo April sky.
"It is so," ho acknowledged, present
ly, a hot color reddening his swnrthy
face. "For her I have the ono liking
that is very tender ; but also havo I tho
doubt that is much and not good.
What of this do you think"
D'Uazelly who had become a de
tective only because ho had an odd nnd
inborn fondness for what he considered
an exciting and most delcotable voca
tion opened whnt ono would presume
to be, from its exterior appearance, 11
quaintly-bound book and nothing more.
It was, however, a "detective camera,"
by which ho hud shortly before obtain
ctl, and without her knowledge, several
striking photographs of thu women of
whom ho had been speaking so dub
iously. "What of this do you think 1" ho iter
ated, exhibiting r. pictcro of .Miss liar
dulpli as she was standing in a curious
altitude of eager and fearful interest
beneath ono of tho great beech trees
beyond the lawn. At her feet, besido
a pilo of imm and stones, opened n
small cavity, over which bIiii was bond
ing, while holding low in n loosening
grasp, what was quite surely a number
of jeweled ornaments,
"I do not know what to think,"
enunciated Mr. Dorinaii, in tones of
dismay. "It would Becm that my
mothers jowels havo been secreted in
that placet and I should say that Anno
lias accidentally discovered tho deposi
tory." "If that is so, why to you or to tho
inadamo honored, sho comes not nil
so glad, so animate and tell tho ono
discovery so so happy nnd not so to bo
understood t" D Itiuclly demanded,
"Hut good lioavcns, Louis I do you
mean that you suspect Miss Dardulph
of nny wrong doing t" was the pained
exclamation. "I must absolutely re
fuse to believe thnt Anno that ingen
ious nnd serious girl, with her pure
oyes and Innocent brow is a thief t
Although there may bo something in
definable nnd inystcrlous nbout her. I
could never nssociato with tho mystery
of crinio niiylhing sho might do.
Sho was but his mother's house
keeper! she had refused his love, and
the naino nnd station ho would havo
given her; yet was ho n right royal
friend, nnd would not listen unmoved
or acquiescent to any accusations mado
While D'Uazelly, who professed for
her a tender liking, although he doubt
ed muoli, sliruggctl Ins snrttce shoulders,
sighed, and looked vastly consequential
and melancholy, albeit he was not .1
sentimentalist, mid had dctormintd to
bo austerely practical, as befits a pro
fessional of his kind.
"I nothing know of tho mystery, not
evil, that you do mean," ho said, impa
tiently. "And to ine it docs seem that
the diamonds of much vnltto must now
to tho inadamo so disconsolate bo re
stored, and the woman of the eyes pure,
nnd tho wnys that so puzzling" are,
must to the custody go."
"Hut sho never entered this houso
until days after tho diamonds were
missed," remonstrated Tony Dorman,
Bhuddcring; "I am decidedly mystified.
Whnt is your theorv, or your explana
tion, of it all f'
"Sho tho nccomplico of ono other is,
I do think," announced tho detective,
with grandiloquence of manner.' "Slio
no longer hero will stny. Sho will an
illness feign, as it may be, and thqn to
tlio other sho will go nwny, tho dia
monds with her takinu, if her we not
"That is all very plausible," returned
her defender, unconvinced. "Hut wo
will at once secure my mother's prec
ious ornaments, nnd then I really must
havo positive and irrefutable evidence
against Miss Bardulph beforo I shall

The early dusk had already suffused
the lawn with a purjilo haze. The cool
air was delicious with tho fresh odors
of violets and hyacinths, and sweet
young grasses. Ihe new, rosy moon
and a great golden star glittered in the
blue Western sky; and out among the
gloomy, complaining pines tho night
uirus were tuneiuny calling.
Tho two young men crossed the lawn
and entered the dim grove, full of resi
nous scents, strange, dreamy noises,
nnd unoasy and fantnstio shadows.
Mutely and with soundless steps they
followed tho grassy, winding walk that
led to tho umbrageous beach of D'Raz
elly's singular photograph.
Suddenly both started, and simultane
ously retreated around a curve of the
path where they stood as silent and
motionless ns the shndo in which they
were hidden. Heyond, in the pearly
effulgence of starlight and moonlight,
they saw tho suspected young woman
bending over that odd repository, from
which sho removed tho moss and peb
bles until her intent watchers beheld
tho cold, inextinguishable firo of the
precious gems gleaming within the

Oare of Manure,
Not less important than tho making

care to bo taken with it after it is ob

manure upon somo farms Is allowed to
wasto simply through neglect ; this too
after great labor and expense is in
currcd in its making or procurement.
This neglect may not be n wilful one,
but it may bo tho result of custom

havo gone through a fierco heat and
become lire fanged to such an extent
ns to be of very little value compared
with what it might' havo been if prop
erly cared for in time. Again 'wo have
seen such as was brought from distan

Wo aro convinced by experi

tho care of manure. Wo havo all

Ono thing is very clear, fresh manitrej'

Wo havo but little faith in tho prac
tice of hauling fresh, unfermeuted ma
nure trom the stable or barnyard and
spreading upon tho land, for the
reason that it is then in a raw unde
compobcd condition, nnd not in
a Btato ready for aiimilnticn

nure be coarse, a largo part is lost, to
tho immediate crop, and requires time
for its natural decomposition. This
decomposition or preparation for plant
food goes on quickly if it is allowed to
ferment before applying ; besides, tho
formation of such gases and chemical
changes givo additional value to ma
