Sruns TRKHR. —PIant shade trees, ex
cept evergreens, as soon as tlie leaves
fall; if done carefully they will hardly
feel the efleots of their removal.
Mrmvs.—One teacup of yeast, three
eggs, teacup of flour, pint of sweet milk,
teaspoon of salt ; let it rise until it is
light, and thou take in muffin nags.
Cnuuirra AXD GOOHKBUUUISH. —Bet
out in rows five feet apart each way.
Make catting* as soon a# the leaves fall
off, and plant in good #oll.* Prune old
bushes in good shape.
FKDKRAI. OAKX. —I pound of sugar :
1 pound of flour; 1 pound of butter ; 1
gill of wine ; 1 gill of brandy ; t pint of
cream or rich milk; 1 nutmeg; 1 pound
of mains; 4 egg*; 1 toa-apoouful of
soda.
Ctoruxats. —J pint of flonr; 1 j pint of
sngar ; 2 pints of milk ; 5 tea-spoonfuls
of baking powder; cinnamon, a little
nutmeg. Flour enough te mil out; but
they are better not very stiff. Boiled in
hot lard.
MAXCRK. —If the orchardist wishes for
a good crop of fruit, he will find it ne
cessary to give ifis trees a liberal supply
of manure. Manuring not only pays iii
the larger quantity of fruit, but also in
the finer quality.
GRATES.— Prune as soon as the leaves
have fallen. The vineyard ought to be
shallow plowed, and if any fertiliser is
used, apply ashes or ground tauc. Re
move tender varieties from the trellises,
and cover with earth before the ground
freezes.
FRENCH LOAF CAKE.—I pound of
sugar ; | pound of butter; , pound of
door ; 8 eggs ; 3 table-spoonfuls of milk ;
t tea-spoon of soda; the rind and jnice
of a large lemon. Mix sugar, batter,
yolks—then the whites—then lemon and
dour. Last, the soda in milk.
Bonus BOXES.— An inquiry was
made of the Fanners' Club as to the
value of bone ash manure. Mr. Curtis
stated that while bones lost some part of
their value by burning, the ease with
which they could be crush xi afterwards,
made this mode of preparation advisable
in some cases.
Brxx CAKE.— Cream together one
pound of sugar and one cup of butter ;
when very light, add six eggs, beaten
very light. _ Beat all together, pour in a
teacup of rich cream, sour is best, with
one- half a teaspoonfnl of soda. Mix with
a light pound of flour ; one-half a tea
spoonful of cream of tarter ; season to
Tors BABN.— Make your barn tight,
especially about the top. and yoor cattle
will eat leas, lie in a better condition,
and bring a larger return in milk or
meat. Radiation from their bodies be
ing reduced, health, comfort and hap
piness will return to them, and monev
t 4 ' you. A barn full of cracks is an
offence against science and your pocket.
Lmc STOCK.— The present low prices
are only temporary, and now is the time
to prepare for the reaction which is sure
to follow. Select the beat cows and
sows for breeding; use only thorough
bred males ; feed liberally, and take good
care of the yon ng stock ; when the market
changes for the better, you will have
something that will bring a good price.
HCSKIXG Coax.—Where a fanner and
iis boys do the husking, it is a good
plan, at any rate for the first day or two,
to husk for only a few hours at a time
and then go to some other job. In oar
own case, we find it cheaper to let ont
the wor 3- by the bushel —taking care to
see thai Che corn is husked clean, that
the stalks are properly tied, and the
bundles made into compact good-sized
steaks, with two bands on top.
CHANDLERS' SCRAPS. —A gentleman
asked the Farmers' Club about scrape
for fowls. He had understood that they
were unwholesome. Mr. Brnen had nse
ed them for his fowls witbont any bad
effect; he hod cooked them with the
other food. I>r. Smith explained that
tlieee scraps supplied the natural demand
of the fowls for animal food whieh they
got ordinarily in the shape of worms"
bug*, etc. Without this they would not
produce egg*, as their food would be de
ficknt in albumen. Mr. Ely provided
his fowls with a aerap-emke,' which he
placed on a raised platform, where they
could hcipthemaelvee when they wished
PRJMKBVTXO Eoc.s nt WlNTEß —Apiece
of lime, as large as a quart-dipper, u put
into five gallons of water, and salt added
until an egg will float. This is strained
and put into a clean keg, into which a
loose bead is made to fit easily ; a knob
is fitted to the head for a handle. The
egga_are put, as they are gathered, into
the liquid, and the loose head placed ou
them to keep them below the surface.
The keg should be kept in a cool place
in the cellar. The liquor will not freeze
except at a lower temperature than
freezing point. Eggs thus preserved
will sell readily as "limed eggs" until
fresh eggs come, and are almost as good
as fresh ones.
WATEB.— A proper supply of water is
an absolute necessity. Animals con not
thrive if compelled to drink from a hole
chopped through the ioe on a pond or
creek. They are ohilled through by the
freezing water, nor will they sufficiently
slake their thirst, unusually increased by
the dry feed they consume. A sis tern
made will be filled by a few rains
and will furnish a supply of water of a
proper temperature through the winter.
It will without any doubt, in many in
stances, save its cost the first season.
Besides the barn-yard will not bs a mad
hole after every rain, and the manure
pile will not have half its value washed
•at on to the road.
FATTIHO HOGS should be pushed for
ward rapidly, and sold early. We ah all
probably be obliged to accept low prices
this season. In our section wo are feel
ing at a decided loss. With good pigs,
it requires from seven to eight bushels
of corn, judiciously fed, to make 100 lbs.
of p< rk. If a fat hog is worth one cent
per lb. more than a lean or half-fat one,
it will pay us better to make him fat
than by selling him lean. We shall
probably lose money in either cases, but
less by making the hogs fat than by sell
ing them lean. This is emphatically
true in the cheap corn sections of the
West. Besides, meat is very high in
Europe, and wage* are advancing, and
there may yet be sufficient foreign de
mand to give us fair prices for our pork.
QUICK TlME.— During the late confla
gration in Chicago two fire engines were
sent from Bloomington, Illinois. in
two hours and forty minutes from the
time they started, in a special train, over
the Chicago, Alton and St Louis Rail
road, they were throwing water on the
fire. The train made the run, one hun
dred and twenty-six miles, in two hours
and ten minutes ; aud the run from
Bloomington to mile*,
was m*de in eighty minutes.

A Curion> Matrimonial Question.
The San Jose (CaL) Mrrctay contains
this singular story :
There resides with his mother in San
ta Clara, Charles VV. Hikes, a young
man of good reputation, worthy ana hon
est, but of huinhle circumstances in
life. There also resides in the same
town, with her parents, Miss Hat tic Bur
nett, a granddaughter of Governor Bur
nett, an estimable young lady of eight
een, of fine accomplishments and un
sullied character. These young people,
it is asserted, formed an attachment for
each other, against the wishes of the
girl's parents, who sought, by various
means, to break the intimacy between
them, and fhey had to meet clandes
tinely.
This state of iiflairs existed for many
months, until the 4th of September last,
when Mr. Hikes, aecom units! by a
young lady who gave her name as Hattie
Burnett, called at the law office of C. C.
Stephens, of this city—an acquaintance
of both parties—apd stated as their ob
ject in calling the intention of living
united in marriage. Justice Stewart
was called in, and the parties were duly
married. They returned to Santa Clara,
remained throughout the day at the
young man's home, and then the lady
went to her own home. Now comes in
the mystery, romance, or what you may
call it, of the whole affair. The fact of
the marriage leaked out—for Hikes made
no secret of it—ami soon reached the
ears of the girls parents. They asked
her if it was true. She said "no. and
seemed greatly surprised at the intima
tion.
Hikes claimed that she was his wife,
and the girl was brought to confront
him in the presence of Mr. Stephens.
Here she denied everything relating to
the alleged marriage—had only kuown
Hikes as a passing acquaintance—never
intended to marry him—the whole thing
was a frand—some woman bearing a
resemblance to her had la-en procured
to personate her, Ac. And in this she
firmly persists at the present time. The
parents believe the girl—the public,
mostly, sympathize with Hikes. Some
think that her fears hare been wrought
upou until she dare not own the troth.
Others don't know what to think-

MASSABP ROOFS. —lt Is stated of the
Chicago conflagration that the heavy
Mansard roofs invited fire and added
material to it. This, we hope, will check
the passion for Mansards which has con
trolled the architectural mind of this
country for several years, and which has
resulted in the most astounding medley
of bnilding abominations conceivable.
In a certain class of very large edifices,
with suSeient stretch to warrant them,
these roofs, if proof against fire, are
sightly; but when it come to a Man
sard for everything from a ehnrrh to a
woodshed, the generul effect is rather
tedious.
THE WHALE FISHEKHRS. —The Regis
ter of the Treasury makes the following
statement in regard to the wliale fisher
ies of the United Statea : In 1868 there
were 328 vessel* ; in 1869 311 vessels ; in
1870 299 vessels; in 1871 249 vessels,
'rhere appears telie a gradual diminu
tion in this onoe important national in
dustry, due to the discovery of petro
leum and the manufacture of coal-oil.
The whaling vessels of the country are
entirely owned at eight porta, viz: New-
Bedford, 187 vessels ; New London, 22 ;
Barnstable, 20; Edgartown, 5 ; Aalem,
5; Nantucket, 5; San Francisco, 8, and

A PANIC EN A CHDBCH. —A column
supporting the main floor of the African
Baptist Meetiiig-Houae, at the corner of
Fifth and York streets, Louisville, Ky.,
gave way, creating a panic in the con
gregation, who all rushed down two nar
uow stair-ways on either side of the
door, the men, in their fright, trampling
upon the women and children, 11 of
whom were killed outright—nine women
aud two ohildren. The column which
eve way was set upon the lower floor,
tween joists, and with nothing to sup
port ft but an inch flooring.

A IHmble Outride.
A Lswistewn ( Maine) paper aay* that
Mr. Cobb nw two young iodic* sitting
on the Auburn shore of the rivor, on
| the very verge of West Pitch Mr.
Cobb'a daughter also notieed the girl*,
| and thought it very strange that
they should he tutting so near the
! wry dangerous place. The more notioe
ablc bociNno the fact when he saw I Item
jump up and trip lightly and carelessly
down the precipitona, rocky, and slip
pery tank, where thev removed their
; outer garments. Miss Cobb then said to
her father that she believed they meditat
ed drowuing themselves, and *o jswumsstsl
with Una nh-a was she that she roaolicd
to still wateh them and see what they
were prx>|sising •* do. After rrmoiing
their outer garments, including their
hnta, she saw the girls return to the sjtot
where they had lieen sitting and resume
tlicir si'Sls. la a few minutes, not far
from 1 o'clock, the train ftoin Bangor
eame thundering by, the track being
about 'JOG or lUkl feet from where they
*at, Mwa Cobb says that while the
train was passing that point she saw the
girla rise, each throw her arms around
the other'a waist, and in thia omliraoc
lln-v, with ap|Mirently ouecsmseut, leap- 1
i d from the shore into the falls. Miaa
Cobb turned to her father, " Father,
they have jumped together into the
falls." Mr. Cbbo, who a moment tafore
tad seen them sitting on the shore,
talked at ones out of the wiudow. com
manding a full new of the scone. No
girls were k Ih< seen—nothing but the
garments they had left on the shore.
The facts SJSHSIIIV became known, and
crowds gathered in the vicinity of the
scene of tlie terrible tragedy, but noth
ing could bo seen but the garments,
bearing silent and at the same time and
witness of the tragedy.
An examination by Mr. Cobb, who
saw the movements of the girls, and by
one or tw o other gentlemen, who noticed
where the sat, but did not tap|x-u to see
them when they took ttie fatal leap, es
tubhshed that the two suicides—as they
stvine A to have leaned from the iwiint
where they first sat down—threw them
selves from the tlat rock which forms a
level platform close to tlie water's edge,
near the foot of the first descent of \Y *t
l*iteh, which, as everyIHHII hereabout*
knows, consists of two falls. The first
is a alight plunge upou a table-rock ;
then a light fall of a hundred feet, more
or less ; then a great cataract, with,
present, a fearful fall of water, rolling
down into a chasm many feet from tlie
base of the first fall. Here, just beyond
the liase of the tin t fall, they soeut to
have thrown themselves into the river.
.Miss Cobb saw them no more. Late in
the afternoon, Miss Starbird, from Au
burn, and others, idtutificd the clothing
left by the suicides on the West Pitch
stone as la-longing to Ada Brown of
Huckfield, and Anna Wood of Hartford,
young girls 14 and 16 years of age.
Miss Brown's eldest sister has la-en at
work in the rity, and is frantic with
grief at the sad tragedy. She left IU the
afternoon to earrv tlie sad news to her
parvuts. We nndt n-taml lath the Wood
and Brown girls were at Ada Brown's
room, on the Bates Corporation, 'l'hurs
day night, reaching there ut ten p. in
Friday morning the elder sister of Ada
carried Ada's breakfast to her room,
where both the girls then were. She
left Ada with the umh (standing thai '
she would be in the mill at Sj o'clock.
Ada did not go into the mill as protnis 1
ed. As she did uot make her appear
ance at dinner, the elder sister became '
alarmed, and going ont learned of the
suieide of two girls, whom she at once J
surmised might be Ada and Miss Wood.
A party of lumbermen, in a battenn*, 1
dragged the river for tlie bodies Friday
afternoon, but discovered no traces of 1
them. The cause of the sad suicide is
only conjectured as being tlie " old
story" but will lie more definitely known
when there shall be an inquest over the
bodies on their discovery.
Panic in a School Building.
A panic occurred among the scholar*
of a Louisville school that made the
whole neighborhood temporarily a scene
of wild excitement. One of Miss Jen
nie Howe's scholars, in the third story,
named Minnie Barton, was taken sud
denly with aspam. The teacher un
derstood the nature of the attack, and
called to some of the girls for water.
The girls, too, commenced calling for
water, as several of them ran hastily
toward the bucket Others in the room,
not understanding the muse of the con
fusion, rushed into the hall and called
" water," and " fire." Theory of " fire "
was instantly caught up by the pupils
in the adjoining rooms, nud they rushed,
panic-stricken from their seats, and pell
mell down the stairs, screaming as they
went. Before they hAd reached the
landing of the second floor, the scholar*
there had caught the alarm, aiul they
too went rushing headlong for the stair
case. joining the affrighted crowd from
the third floor, all screaming at once,
the cry of "fire" rising above the din
from about 300 throats, as they all went
tumbling down the steps together. The
scholars on the ground floor, when they
heard the tumult on the stairs, ami the
screaming of their school matey, terrified
at the thought that the house was falling
in npon them, ran for their lives out in
to the street, closely followed by the
head of the panic-stricken column of
girls and boys still rushing headlong
down the stairyray. During the excite
ment most of the teachers seemed to
preserve their M>lf-|oßse*siou, and en
deavored to calm the tumult, and pre
vent the precipitate flight of the scared
youngsters. But oil efforts to Unit end
were in vain.
A HINPOKTAN HOTKI..— The following

THK CANADIAN Miurru. —A* asserted
by a cotemporory, the chief object in
devising a militia system i* to discover
a method whereby tue whole ahle-l>odi<sl
male population may lie trained to the
use of arms without any leogtiiened de
tention of the men from their industrial
pursuits. The people of Canada aeeui
to have come nearer to the attainment
of that end than any other. The real
militia of the Dominion is organised un
der a law which orders the enrollment,
discipline and pavmont of forty thous
and men. The law requires of these
men but sixteen days" drill in the year,
hut tin l siiirfl of competition among the
men lead* them to drill fit least once a
week, while they spend the whole of the
time for which they are paid under the
canvass. The officering of this force is
provided for hy military school*. One
of the lest features of this system is the
constant target practice to which the
men are subjected. The expense of
maintaining this force amounts to a little
less than twenty-eight dollar* per man.
The majority of the men drop out of the
rank* when their terms of service have
expired, leaving their places to lie occu
pied bv others, *o that at least five thous
and men are added to the drilled force
every year.
A MIXED IT FAMILT.— A sufferer by
alliances between connections by mar
riage thus explains his position : "I
married a widow who had a grown-up
daughter. Mv father visited our house
very often, and fell in love with my step
daughter, and married her ; so my fa
ther became my son-in-law, and my
step-daughter my mother, lieeause she
was my father's wife. Rome time after
wards mv wife had a son—he was my
father's brother-in-law and my uncle,
for he was the brother of my step
daughter. My father's wife, i.e., my
step-daughter" had also a son ; he was
of course my brother, and in the mean
time my grandchild, for he was the son
of my daughter. My wife wna my
grandmother, because alie was my mo
ther's mother. I was my wife's husband
and grandchild at the same time. And
as the husband of a person's grand
mother is the grandfather, I was my
grandfather."

in the ice. The captains of the whaler*
Arctic. Gavhead, Menerva, Elixa Kwift,
Reindeer. Eugenia, and Dacia. who had
arrived at Houoluln, furnished the fol
lowing details of the disaster :
The vessels commenced arriving on
the Ist of May. and on the Ist of June
the ice ajx-ned and let the fleet up with
in sight of N'avarin, the fleet
working northward. Found some whales
crossing the sea of Anadyr, and in the
Behring sea morn, bnt experienced much
trouble from tbc ice. aiul when the fle t
arrived at t'ajw Ilehring and Plover Bay,
the wind CM had jpawx-d through into the
Arctic t)cran, whither the fleet follow
ed. meeting with fair success, until alxmt
the Ist of September, when ice floe# and
liergs b a great extent, commenced
drifting down, and by the Ibth a num
ber of vessel# hail Iwwn sunk, and the
bulk of the remainder hemmed in by the
drifting ice, er driven ashore. On Bei

the 7th the lbnnan was drifted Ixxlily
out to M by two floes, and crushed like
*n egg-shell. The rretr narrowly escsp

{September 13, the captains of the fleet,
hemmed in between Point lteleher and
Wainwright Inlet, held a meeting, and
resolved to al>atidon the vessels in order
to save the linw of the crews, which was
done, ami 1 .900 sailors took refuge on
the remainder of the fleet, which hail
Iteen fortunate enough to escapeontaide
before the ire closed iu on the vessels.
Nearly 600 of the wrecked sailor*
were Kanakas, and will remain at Hono
lulu, leaving as many more there, nianv
of them nnprovided for. The bark
Comet will bring as many as she etui
carry, and the American consul was ne
gotiating for a hark to carry another
load to Son Francisco. The officers
think n naval vessel should lie sent to
bring the remainder. The whole 1,900
were brought from the Arctic Sea on aix
whalers, in addition to their rrews and
cargoes of oil. The loss by the destruc
tion of tlie fleet is about $1,500,000.
The catch destroyed foota up to 18,065

100,000 pounds of lame.
HOME CONVERSATION.—ChiIdren hun
ger perpetually for new idea*. They
will leant sith pleasure from the lips of
parents what they deem it drudgery to
study in 1 Hioks : and even if they have
the misfortune to lie deprived of many
educational advantages, they will grow
tip intelligent if they enjoy in childhood
the privilege of listening daily to the
conversation of intelligent people. We
sometimes see people who an- tlie life of
every company they enter, dull silent,
and uninteresting at home among their
children. If they have not mental ac

place from which they will escape if
they can. How much useful informa

TIME TO PAnrr— The bast time to do
out-door painting is tho present. Coal,
dry weather permits the paiut to harden
and form a tough surface. In hot
weather the pores of the wood soak up
the oil, which rendered more fluid by
the heat, is rapidly alntorbod In-fore it
has had time to harden. The lead is
then left adhering only very loosely, and
is brushed off at the least contact. Be
sides a great objection to painting in
summer is found in the numerous fliea
which find a premature grave thereon,
and in the cool autumn months this
is avoided. .
WHERE THEY COME FROM,— Our do
mestic animals, according to Mr. W.
Boyd Hawkins, including the sheep, the
horse, the dog, and the pig, were pro
bably derived from the East, and
brought Westward by a pastoral people
from the central plateau of Asia. It is
only in the East that tho wild descend
ants of the ancestors of the domestic
breeds are to be found at the present
day.
