J. M. Smith, a market gardener at
Green Bay. Wis., furnishes some inter
eating statements of his experiments in
high culture- He ha* found the rule
invariable, not a single exception to it,
that the more he lias spent rultivatiug
and manuriug the greater have been the
net profit* per acre. Last season he
cultivated fourteen acres, and began
with a more thorough aud expensive
cultivation than aver before. The result
was that, although there wa* a "ter
rific drought," one of the dry set seasons
ever known in that region, after spend
ing £3,&k\ or $lB4 per acre, he had a
better balance than for any previous
He appears to regard constant cultiva
tion, especially through droughts, in
connection with copious manuring, as
all-important Stable manure* is the
standard, with such use of superpho*
phates, plaster, lime, ashes ami other
manures as experience and good sense
point out " After you have learned
now to spend money to the best advan
tage," he remarks, "a larger profit may
be made by laying out 8800 per acre than
with loss. After the second year if your
land does not pay all its expense*, taxes
and teu per cent on SI,OOO per acre,
there is something wrung somewhere. I
have some seres of land that did not pay
expenses for two years, but for a num
ber of years past have not failed to pay
ten per cent, ou at least SI,OOO per acre.
1 expect my whole garden to do more
than that in a short time."
He adds that he is now aiming at
1,000 bushels of ouicus per sere, then a
crop of carrots or turnips, or 500
b labels of early potatoes ; or, if straw,
berries, 12,800 quarts, or 400 bushels
per acre.
Earth u a Pri<rirr.
Slops from the kitchen can be ran
upon a heap of dirt, which may be oc
casionally shoveled over and changed
after it has absorbed a good deal of filth.
It is then well worth removing to use as
a fertiliser. It is better than running
nnieigrouud into a pit, where the odors
generally find some way of escape, often
into the kitchen, on account of some de
fect or stoppage of the pipes. The use
of dry earth is vastly better than to wash
the filth into a sewer, thence into a
river, to contaminate the air and water.
A little mouse, a dead frog or squirrel,
or a few dead worms will spoil the water
of a well so every one will smell it and
refuse to drink it. The same subjects
ar.> completely deodorized by a small
sh jvelful of dry earth.
Haw (• Rake Hay.
There are many more tons of hay lost
an inaliv than farmers are aware of from
rating it the wrong way. When cut
with a maehiue the grass falls back and
if you rake it in the same direction that
you cut you will get all the grass, as it
ali lays hack with the tops over the
butts shingle fashion. But if yon rake in
th* opposite direction it shingles the
wrong way and instead of the grass
ba -k gathering that in front, it slides
over and loses constantly. But few
farmers ever think of so small a matter,
bat the millions of grass spears lost by
raking the wrong way make hundreds
of tons.
( OHru ad U far Petal* Rao,
B. F. Phillips, of Ashtabula county,
Ohio, gives the following aa his plan for
tie ;troving the potato bag : Take equal
parts of copperas and slacked lime. I
us d five pounds of each to twenty gal
lons of water, and put it on with a white
wash brush. One haud can dop an acre or
m ;re rn a day. I reduced a small quan
titr about one-half, and it had the same
efiT *ct; and so far from injuring it seem
ed to improve the vines. My field of
Eoiatoes were literally alive with the
ugs; I gave the potatoes one doping,
and next day not a live bug could be
found in the field.

Several substitutes may be used in the
place of new milk in raising calves. In
batter dairying, skim milk will answer
every purpose. When the calf is a week
old, begin to substitute skim for new
milk, giving it warm, and in two weeks
m ire the entire feed may be skim milk.
Where milk is sold or made into cheese,
when the calf has been led a week on
new milk a gradual change may be made
by aiding a mucilage made by steeping
oil meal in hot water and mixing with
the new milk—a spoonful of oil meal
for the first few days, and increasing by
a spoonful at a time until a half-pint is
reached in four weeks, when the milk,
having been gradually reduced, can bo
dispensed with. A little scalded meal
or flour can be also gradually introduced
with the oil meal, making a gruel of the
mess. Hay tea is also successfully used
by many as a good substitute for milk.
TTxe hay must be fresh and green.—
Hint* on Poultry Krepta*.
In keeping fowls healthy we have
found nothing equal to onions chopped
fine, and thoroughly mixed with meal,
or meal and miiifeed. They eat it readi
ly. Iu the incipient stages of most of
their common diseases, including chol
era, we have always found this an effec
tual remedy. As sulphur enters largely
into the formation of the feathers, it
should be frequently fed to them. In
winter, 01 when kept confined, hens to
lay well must have meal often, and
pounded bones, the fresher the better,
or oyster shells. If fed with these plen
tifully, with such variety of grain as they
like best, and well housed and watered,
they will lay nearly as well in winter as
in summer, and wiil seldom if ever eat
• their own eggs.
America at the Exhibition.
In referring to the Centennial exhibi
tion the New York 7 ribuw sagaciously
says: No doubt there will be American
exhibitors of all kinds in plenty, bnt the
danger is that they leave the work
to l>e done until the eleventh hour, pre
cisely as tliey did in Paris and Vienna,
and that whomever commendation their
skill miglit command will be dampened
by the too evident display of'the national
lack of system and headlong habit of
hurry and incompleteness. The build
, ings promise to be all that is required.
The commissioners are zealous and trust
worthy. Now it is time for our manu
facturers and craftam n to do their part
with Order and dispatch.
Fishermen should always take a lunch
along, with them, for they may not be
able to get a bite during the day.
The Cure <r.' Children.
At a meeting of the medical lioard of
the Eastern Dispensary, one of the
largest institutions of the kind in the
city of New York, l>r. Fuller-Walker,
the attending children's physician to
the dispensary, read a pajx>r on en kern
colitis, or Uie inflammation of the
mucous membrane of the intestiual
canal, some portions of which are eon
denaed and given below:
Of the two hundred oases which last
year occurred betweou April 1 and De
oembcr 81, nine-tenths were in children
between the agee of seven m on the and
two and half years, or at that period in
life when dentition is in progress, and
the mother begins to fesl the infant
other food than is offered by the breast.
With the majority of mothers the notion
prevails that teething causes bowel com
plaints, and if a disturbance of the ali
mentary canal manifests itself coinci
dentally witli the appearanoe of teeth in
the child's moutli, the mother imagines
that slie discovers iwiw ami effect at
once. Severe dentition, where the gums
are greatly swollen ami the month in
flamed, may cause a alight disturbance
of the digestive amiamtu*, leading in
the end to a gentle diarrhea; but my ex
rience confirms the views held by Dr.
ls>wis Smith, that the doctrine tliat
dentition is the cause vd a large propor
tion of infantile diseases is erroneous.
Undoubtedly the gravest error commit
ted by parents is in the mstter of giving
food to their children. I find it to b*
almost always the fact that a child suf
j faring front inflammation of the bowels
has lieeu fed with corn starch, coffee and
lea, aour or poor milk, bits of bread,
meat, cake, and a tut of everything
there is going about the house. Not
more than teu oses out of the two hun
dred OMVnd iu infants below the age
of six mouths, and not more than
twenty-five in children over three years
of ago. These facts show that t*wel
complaints commence in chihireu from
the time those having them iu charge
begin to stuff them with a great variety
of food, much of which is totally lUl
suited to their little stomachs ami tiieir
tender bowels. Recoguuiug tlie fsot
that errors in diet are the chief cause of
bowel complaint*, I always endeavor to
regulate these matters, and, as a rule,
insist that all forms of solid food shall
be withhold from infants; only warm,
pure milk being given. This is bland,
soothing, nutritious, and will he received
l*v the stomach and bowels, if any form
ol food can be taken, it ahould l ever
be kept iu an ioe box with meat and
vegetable*. Where it is difficult to get
pure, freah milk, Borden's condensed
milk, properly reduced, is recommend
ed; and it is sometime* a good plan to
mix the uiilk with barley water. The
milk treatment I have found to be very
successful. Light is as essential to hu
niau as to vegetable life, and growing
children ueed it far more than adults.
Errors in clothing are almost as bad iu
their effect as errors of diet; especially
in a climate so changeable as the Ameri
can. Soft flannel shirts ahould be
worn dnriug both summer and winter.
The dress should never form a ligature
about any portion of the body, since it
interrupt* circulation and promote* con
gestion. If the physician can properly
control the hygienic conditions sur
rounding a child, he will find that in
most case* very little medicine Af any
sort need be given.
A Wrestling Match.
Olive Hsrper, in the St. Louis Globr,
gives an account of a wrestling match in
Albania : The men were stripped entire
ly naked. Their bodies were rubbed
with oil, and they entered the lists.
Two stepped out aud they were soon
locked in an embrace that seemed most
loving, but for the twist in gs and eoutor
tions and fierce looks of the wrestlers.
The force, the strength, the magnificent
structure of form, the great, straining
muscles and the lithe, sinuous twisting*
of the body was something to rememlier
forever. I watched, breathless, with
every nerve tense,admiring the beauty aud
strength of the men, when one gave way
a little and the other threw him heavily
on the ground, where he lay for a mo
ment apparently dead. My sympathies
had, like those of any other woman, been
with the handsomer of the two, but now
I was all for the one who lay helpless ;
but sympathy he did not need, for in
five minutes he was ready again, and the
strainings aud bending! commenced
anew, and in a short time the other lay
upon the grass, and he stood triumphant.
The third trial was to be definite, and the
struggle was fiercer and lasted longer
than either of the others. Then the
strong muscles stood ont on the broad
backs ; tbeu the white legs were pillars
of irou ; then the grand chests heaved
with the deep breathings of these two
strong wrestlers—gladiators of living
marble, with necks like the " tower of
Letianun." Not a sound from the multi
tude to break the silence ; ail were as
breathlessly anxious as I, watching the
two splendid athletes. When the one
who had fallen the first took the other,
somehow, around the waist and bent
over him and bore him to the ground,
then the shouts tiiat arose made the very
mountains tremble.
A Serious Religious Outbreak.
The Herzegoviftian insurrection is as
■uming threatening proportions. On
account of the nearness of the province of
Herzegovina to Austria, that empire is
supposed to have a deep inteiest in the
welfare of the people, especially as
Christians form a considerable element
in the population. The insurrection be
gan with troubles lietweeu the Moslems
and Christians; it lias gradually drifted
into a rebellion against Turkish domina
tion. Servia, a semi-independent State,
sympathizes with the Herzegovinians,
and the Servians are aiding the insurrer
tionists by subscriptions. Prince Milan,
the reigning sovereign of Servia, is mak
ing a pilgrimage to Vienna for the pur
pose, it is said, of ascertaining what
position Austria proposes to occupy in
this latest complication. Anstria, at the
first outbreak, hastily dispatched troops
to the frontier, but has preserved a strict
neutrality. Serva is interested to know
if this attitude is to be preserved, or if
Austria will interfere iu the interests of
peace in case the insurrection shall long
continue. Meantime, Servia, which has
been under the rule of native princes,
but nominally subjects to Turkey, sinoe
1815, may drift into the current and be
come actually independent.
In a Detroit Police Court.
" F.rust us Washbnrue Harrison, the
police say that yon are a drone-lee in
the great hive of industry," said the
court to the next prisoner.
"I can prove my cliaracter," replied
Egastns, settling back on his dignity.
"I don't want auv proof—proof sticks
oat all over yon. See the whib-wash on
your back ! Gaze at that head of hair,
which hasn't been ambled over with a
comb since you can remember ! Behold
that soiled shirt—those old clothes
your general dilapidated look. It's no
crime to be poor, Mr. Harrison, but it's
meaner than pizen for a poor man to be
"I haint lazy," replied the prisoner.
"Ah ! Erastaa, don't talk to me! I
see no ambition in yonr eye—uo resolu
tion in yonr face—no dust around in
yonr actions. Yon wouldn't crack a co
coanut for the sake of the milk ami
meat. Go to the ant, thou sluggard,
consider her ways and be wise."
"I haven't got any aunt," said Mr.
" Well, you've got to ante out of this,
my humble friend. I'm going to make
it sixty days."
Erastus marched back with stern and
deliberate step.
Human Nature.
A Detroit commercial traveler walked
down the aisle of a passenger coach the
other day, having on an outlandish linen
duster and an old straw hat, and seven
women, who had seats by themselves,
piled their baggage on the spare half
and looked out of the windows to avoid
(feeing him. While he was sitting on
the woodbox and chewing the bttter end
of reflection a man with a brass watch
chain and a three dollar set of glass
diamonds entered the car, and six of the
women lifted their satchels down and
moved close up to the side of the car.
Such things are not right, but they
always will be.
The Story of a Wreck.
There were one hundred and three
women on board the ill fated Schiller,
and of all this number only one was
saved. She tells the story of the wreck
as follows: We were in the cabin at the
time. As we started to go up the stair
way 1 felt a sudden shock, and in an iu
slant I appreciated the terrible fact that
the vessel had struck. I was almost wild
with terror, but my husband hurried tue
up the stairway only to find that our
worst fears wore realised. All was con
fusion, but our personal safety was the
first thing to l>e thought of; so I Jump
•si into a iifctioat which was hanging ut
the aide of the ship, swung from the
davits. There was some'thing the mat
tor with the gear, however, and we were
compelled to get out again, and wore put
into another of the I mat*. They were
full of water, and the |a<opl wlio had i
jmu|Hsl or got into them the liest way
they could were crushing and even
traiupliug on each other. 1 had Usui
severely bruised from my leap into th*
first boat, ami was still more seriously
injured while in the second. As I told
you, the Uat* were full of watar, ami
the second one whieli we got into had n
great' deal of trouble in getting away
from the aide of the ship.
It acctiled doomed not to eaoajte the
fury of the nioriu, for we wore ti<aeod
aUnit iu the darkness for nearly two
hours, the Uat all tlie time lieing iu a
sinking condition. Finally we fell ttt
with auother U<at, which took our party.
For ten hours more our fate hung in the
balance. So for twelve hours, bruised,
faint aud terror stricken, 1 sat huddled
Ul> 111 an o|x-u Uat. if I were asked
which was the sweetest moment of ifly
life 1 should say it was when luy feet
touched the shore of tlie island when we
landed. 1 want to say that the treatment
we received ou landing was of the kind
est and moat hospitable character, oven
more so than our reception at I'lymouth.
One thing I forgot to mention. I am
the only lady survivor of the Schiller, |
but iu the second boat which we got into
there was another lady lying in the but
torn of it, but she was dead when we
landed. In tlie crush ami horror of the
scene she was trampled ii)ou ; hut
whether she die*! from fright, or flrrur,
or exiiaustiou, 1 am unable to say.
A reporter subsequently learned from
the husband of Mrs. Joeti* that after
they ha*l part sally recovered from the
effects of the terrible ordeal through
which tlicy had (tassed they went to
their native town ui Schieswig, where
they s{>ent upward of seven weeks iu
recuperating their strength. Naturally
enough his wife had a strong reluctance
to agaiu crossing the ocean, ami it was
ouly after tlie most earnest persuasion
that she could he induced to undertake
the voyage. All of their material inter
ests were iu Davenport, lowa. They
were possessed of coDsidt-i side property
uesr there in real estate, ami so, finally,
his wife wa* prevailed upon to cross the
ocean again. All the way over, how
ever, she wa* in constant dread and did
not sleep an hour duriug any night. Mrs.
Joeus is a ruddy, pleasant looking
lady, apparently about thirty-five year*
of ago. While she told her story, it was
evidently more with a desire to oblige
than from any wish to dwell upon a sub
ject which must be replete with pain
ful recollections.
The Late I. X. Singer.
In the dentil of Inane M. Singer, an
nounced from London, Rays the Toledo
(Ohio) Cormmtrvial, a strange life dosed.
The deceased hnd a checkered history.
Of his early life we know little beyond
the fact that he was a young man of
bright talents and tneutal promise, with
a special tendency to development in
mechanic arts. Milieu al>out thirty six
years of age (in 1*46), under the name
of I. S. Merritt (substituting his middle
for his last name), he ap]M-ared in Ohio
as the proprietor of a " Omit Moral
Drama," designed to illnstrute the vice
of drunkenness, and enforce the princi
ples of total abstinence. The success of
the enterprise stvms not to have met his
expectations, for in a short time he
found himself at Fredericksburg, Wayne
county, bankrupt, and compelled to sus
peud operations and sell out his concern.
Thus situated, he set aland looking for
other business. Having some knowl
edge of WIHHI type manufacture, he soon
found in Mr. Day (afterward well known
to the j>riuters of Ohio) s partner for
the prosecution of that business in Fred
erioksburg, under the firm name of Day
.V Merritt A limited establishment was
improvised, with tools and machiuery
driven by hona- power. The next spring
Mr. "Merritt" started out with a one
horse wagon loaded with types, which
he sold cliiefiy to country printers in
Northern Ohio. Encouraged by the re
sults of this trip,-the firm went on and
manufactured so hi>erally that the next
spring Mr. " Merritt " set out with a
double team and a larger load. The re
sults of that trip were not known for
many years, for the peddling jMirtuer
failed to return to make report, having
decamped with load, team, and the avails
of the trip. The type business was con
tinued for many years at Fredericks
burg, and subsequently at Cincinnati by
Mr. Day and a brother, but "Merritt 1,
" returned uo more." Subsequently, as
already indicated, he turned np under
his proper name, Isaac 31. Singer, the
sewing machine patentee, in which char
acter he has long been known to the
world. To what extent he was the real
inventor of the machine I tearing his
name is disputed, it having been alleged
that it was chietly the work of other
brains ; but he became the patentee, and
as such secured an enormous income,
which for many years j>ast has contri
buted li!h-rally to the gratitication of his
tastes aud desirea, most of liis time of
late lieing spent in Eurojte. His lffe
was a suooess in respect to p*cuniary
gain and notoriety ; but in other re
spects, which most men regard as higher
attainments of human ambition, he was
not much kuown, and his record can
hardly be held np for the emulation ol
young men.
The Tobacco Crop.
The July returns to the department of
agriculture show that the acreage of
tolmoco is greater than that of last year,
tho increase being in the great tobacco
producing States. Maryland lias in
creased her area fonr per cent.; Virginia,
thirty ; North Carolina, thirty-three;
South Carolina, seven ; Florida, twenty
three ; Mississippi, sixteen ; Arkansas,
ten ; Tennessee, two hundred mid three ;
Kentucky, two hundred and twenty
three ; Ohio, twenty-five; Indiana,
forty-nine ; Illinois, fifty-six ; Missouri,
sixty. New York, Pennsylvania and
Texas rejiort the same area as last year.
New Hampshire ltas reduced her small
acreage thirty jnr cent.; Massachusetts,
twenty-five ; Connecticut, two ; (ieorgia,
fifty ; Alabama, ten ; Louisiana, seven ;
Wisconsin, seventeen ; Kansas, eleven.
The condition of the crop is most satis
factory iu the larger tobacco Stab s, and
is two i>er cent, above an average on tho
whole. Kentucky, which produces two
fifths of onr whole crop, is thirty-four
per cent, above the average. The other
large producing Btab>s sre either very
tear a full average or alsive. The re
markably depressed condition is noted
mly in the smaller producing States.
Clly Criminal l.ife.
An illustration of the way they do
things at the Tomlts iu New York citv
is from the World : " Say, Eugene, '
said an officer at the Tomlm to a clerk,
" how many prisoners have I got on the
sheet?" " Officer Smithkins, of the
Twenty ninth —nine," was the answer.
" Well," replied the officer, "l'v( got
my accounts sorter mixed; 1 know I run
in ten, but I cau only find eight in the
cage." "Well, what are you going to
do alsmt it ?" snavely asked the clerk.
" Blest if I know. Say, Hlenkinship,
how many nriaoners have you got?"
(This to another officer). "0, I've only
got seven, but our precinct 'll be called
last." "Well, lend me a she one till
after I get my cases done, and I'll go out
on CeDter street and run one in to return
to you." "Keerect. What sort of a
one'll yon have ?" "I want a vagrant
of about sixty, Irish, tliat was very
drunk andahusire, and took four offi
cers to run in." "Then I've just got
your fit. Here, you, Mary Fitzgib
bons, there," and he loosened an inmate
of the bull pen. " Thanks; I'll do as
much for you Another time."

A Minnesota Love Story.
A mther curious tale of romance
comes from Miniienpolts, Minn., and is
thus told by a local jmper: A gentleman
of mature age and somewhat well known
in musical circles l>oarded in the same
house with n lady teacher, aud is apt to
be the cose, fell in love with her. He
Cid attentions so assiduously that the
ly's affections were seemingly won at
last, and a marriage engagement was
entered into. The parties were w hat is
known as worldly wise, as well as affec
tionate, and wluie discussing tlie future
they incidentally compared assets and
liabilities. Tlie gentleman had alxnit
s6oo,and the btdv held balances amount
iug to $1,400. It was then determined
that tlie head of the houae should pur
chase a lot in an eligible |>oaitiou, the
fiancee agreeing hi contribute her $1,400
toward the construction of a $2,000 resi
dence. The agreement seemed satisfac
tory in every respect, and the gentleman
at once consulted au architect, had tlx
Elans drawn, and engaged a will known
uihlcr to do the work on the new house,
which was to cover any amonut of do
mestic and unalloyed felicity. When
the building operations were well under
way, however, the lady concluded she
would visit friends nt the Host, and her
"future husband " having no objection,
she started off, taking the sum of $1,400
with her. Now comes the thrilling
clause in this brief but too solemnly
true narrative of love and distressed fi
nance.. Since the lady's departure she
hns persistently declined to answer tlie
appealing missives of her affianced, and
the work on the new house has been sua
lx-lided on occonut of n failure to pay
for the labor of the industrious aud
anxious contracting builder. He wanted
his money, but owing to the sudden
withdrawal of the £1,400 in partnership
assets the unfortunate gentleman could
only offw to throw the uncompleted
house back on the hands of the contrac
tor; but that gentleman is in no need of
a new habitation, and this Minneapolis
love story is left in very complicated and
emtarrassing shape.
The United State*.
The statistics furnished by the United
.States department of agriculture reveal,
in startling figures, the vast natural
wealth of the country. Less than one
fifth of the entire area of the United
States is occupied by farms, of which
only one-fourth is under tillage. Not
withstanding the enormous wheat crop,
the land which produces it is not equal
in extent to the surface of South Caro
lina. The national crop, corn, covers a
territory not larger than Virg ; nia, and
the potato crop could grow in less than
the urea of Delaware. In view of these
figures, who can question the boundless
resources of America, or look with mis
giving upon her steady tide of immi
gration i
The practice of pinning back the
skirts of ladies is said to account for the
sudden change of purpose that is often
noted nowadays when a lady sits down.

name suggestive of romance, yet ahe
waa withal a gvutle mnl a loving girl,
mnl had maiden fancied that gave the
deep color of romance to one of tlie iu
cideiitn of her life iu the wilderuenn.
She waa juat turueil uf sixteen. The
other girla, younger by two yearn, were
Fmmy Callaway, fairer than her sister
ltetny, and Jemima lioone Though but
fourteen yi-ara counteil the lives of tlie
two girla each hud a lover who waa a
hardy pioneer. Aa eveuiug drew near,
one of the girla proposed that they
ahoulil go a abort diatauoe la-low the
fort to where a canoe wan lying, and
drift out upon the river U> catch tlie
riding oooloesa of the eveuiug.
Hardly were they Rented aud prepared
to puah from the ahore, when they de
tected a alight rustle in the bruah, and
in a moment more live atalwart aud
ludeoualv (minted Indiana laapad to tlie
aide of the canoe. What girl of sixteen
could lie eipiai to aueh an emergency I
lietny Callaway, witliuiit a moment a
hesitation, determined to defend tlie
houor mnl tlie liven of herself aud her
young iviiijanioua, aud wrote bar name
iu the auuala of Kentucky. Standing
erect ill the canoe, ahe acioed the (toddle,
and at a single blow laid o|>eu to the
tdiue the head of the foremost aavage.
The i>ther Indiana pressed ou, but, atill
nudauuteil, tlie brave girl fought them.
Filially exhausted, she sank to tlie bot
loin of the cwnoe, and with her trembhug
nidt-r aud friend waa dragged ashore,
mid hurried off to meet whatever fate
might be iu attire tor them.
The couateruatiou at ths fort can well
lie imagined. The fathers of tlie girla
| soon returned, aud before the night
I cloned in Daniel Boone, at the head of a
party ou foot, and ltiehard Callaway, at
tlie head of a jiarty on horm-tiack, were
off in pursuit. Iu Boone's party were
Samuel Henderson, John Holder, aud
Flanders Callaway. AH Henderson dtroile
alutig he wan thinking of the olive
clieeked heroine, Betsy Callaway ; aud
Holder clenched hia hands and ground
| hin teeth when he thought of poor, little,
frightened Fauuy ; and Flanders Calls
way a!uioat forgot hin kith and kin for
thinking of hia captured Jemima lhsjue.
j We can eanilv smile over it now, but let
' any man put hitnaelf in the place of these
young men and oak himself how he
would feel iii such a pursuit.
YVhen tlie Indiana started with the
girls they made tli> younger once take
off their ahoee ami put ou tnorcaitiua,
but Betsy refnml to take off her shoes,
and as she walked along she ground her
heel into the soil to leave atrial. Noticing
this, the Indians made tlie whole party
walk iqmrt and deviate from the ootirae,
no as to wade through the water aud ile
strov the trail. Then the uudaunted
Betsy broke off twigs aud dropped them
along the road ; and when the savages
threatened her with uplifted tomahawk
if she persisted in thi*, she secretly tore
off portions of her dreaa and dropped
them ou the road.
Boone's (suiv aoon found the trail and
followed it rapidly, fearing that tlie girls
might grow weary aud be put to death.
All Sunday night and alf Monday tlie
pursuit wan kept up. On Tuesday morn
ing a slender column of smoke wan seen
in the distance, and the experienced eve
of the huuter detected the camp of the
Indians. A aerioua difficulty now pre
sented itin-lt. H<>w were tlie captives to
lie rescue 1 without giviug the captors
time to kill them f lucre wan hut little
time for reflection, an the Indians must
quickly discover llieir presence. The
white men were sure shots and so they
picked tlieii men, fired upon them, and
then rushed into tlie cnnip to their
rtvtcuc. At the momcut of nttack tin
girls wren* sitting at the foot of a tree;
Betsy with a red Inuidauna handkerchief
thrown over her head, while the heads
of Fanny and Jemima were reclining in
her lap. Betsy's olive complexion came
war serving lier a bad turn at thin jnne
inre, for one of the rescuing party com
ing suddenly upon her mistook her for
an Indian, and was alsuit to knock her
brains out with the butt of his rifle
when a friendly hand intervened and
saved the girl from meeting her d<*th
just at the moment when she ssw lilierty
within her reach.
The fathers aud gallants carried their
loved ones home in triumph, and this
romance of real life in Kentucky a ecu
turyago would not lie completed without
the information that tho dreams of love
and happinoHA that were so cruelly dis
turlied were sulMcqticutly all realised.
Brave Betsy Callaway became Mrs.

story of her capture to her children and
her children's children. Little Fanny

Oranges anil Lemons.
Ornnge and lemon plantations, in tho
Mediterranean countries, are ml led gar
deus, and vary iu size, the smallest con
taining only a small numlier of trees,
and the largest ninny thousands. The
fruit is gathered in baskets similar to
ts'iich baskets, lined with canvas, the
Imsket Is-ing held by a strap attached
and passed around the neck or shoul
ders. From the gnrden the fruit goes
to tho repacking inng.izine, where it is
removed from the Isixos, in which it was
(Nicked in tlie gardens, aud repacked for
shipment by experienced female pock
era, after having been can-fully assorted
by women, and wrapped in separate pa
per* by young girls. As uianv as 500
l>crao!is, mostly women and children,
are employed by some of the fruit
growers in their gardens and magazines,
for gathering, sorting. And repacking
for shipment, tlie wages paid them vary
ing from nine to sixteen cents a day. A
full grown orange I roc yields from five
hundred to two thousand fruit annually,
and arrives at the henring state in three
or five years, as draw the lemon tree.
In sorting, every fruit that wants a stem
is rejected. The boxes are then secure
lv covered, at rapped,'and marked with
the brand of the grower, whan they are
ready for shipment. Twenty years ago
this trade was nothing in its commercial
characteristics, or the inducements it
off.-red to capitalists. Now it is progress
iug with giant strides into prominence,
and iH a considerable source of revenue
to the government.

The aggregate expenses of the United
States government for the fiscal year
ended June 80 last, exclusive of interest
on the public debt, were in round num
bers $274,500,000. In his annual report
to Congress in December last, Svretary
Bristow estimated the ordinary expenses
for the year at $275,314,000. This osti
mate is said to lie the closest approach
to the actual expenses ever made. In a
dispatch of June 17, it was stated that
the aggregate ei|>enses would not exceed
9276,000,000, and that the total receipts
for the year would lie at least $289,000,-
000. The actual receipts for tho year
from customs and internal revenue were
$260,267,1 Kit. The receipts from mis
cellaneous sources liave not yet I wen as
cortained, but it is safe to any they will
aggregate at least $23,000,000. Tlie es
timate of the secretary put the receipts
from that source at $2•.000,000. It is
now certain that the excess of receipts
over exjxjinlitures for the last fiscal year
will IK* at least $15,000,000, and may
feach $17,000,000. In the fiscal year
ended June 30, 187-4, the excess of re

in the neighborhood of French OH tup,
near Stockton, Cal., end prey upon the
wheat fields, from which they are with
ering their winter's supplies. Ho in
forms us that there is nn nrmy of the
pests constantly on the move tran*(n>rt
ing the wheat from lire fields to their
dens. One of the most active of the
army of transportation, whose jaws were
distended with plunder, was shot, and
from his mouth was taken a small hand
ful of choice, plump wheat. Kallcnhaeh
had the curiosity to count the grains,
and found they numbered fif2 and
weighed a few grains over one ounce. It
is calculated that an able-bodied squirrel
that will attend strictly to business will
steal and transport to his underground
warehouse a pound of wheat per day.
With his relatives, he would get away
with a ton, worth to-day ?4'-. A person,
from this, can form some idea of the
damage the millions of rodents are doing
in the oountry, for they are all industri
ously at work.

We ought not to judge moo'a merita

When a man seems to be wise, it is
merely that his follies are proportionate

Young men are apt to think tbarn-
I aelvea wise enough, as drunken men are
: to think themwlroa nober enough.

Different minds incline to different

attributes, but mercy is the only one in
which we cau pretend to equal Him.
We cannot, indeed, give like God; but
surely we may forgive like him.
Happiness depends on the prudent
constitution of the habits ; and it ia the
j business of religion not so much to
extinguish our desires as to regulate and
direct them to valuable and we 11-chosen
i objects.
Whatever be the cause of happiness
may also be likewise the csnse of misery.

the farmer filled one egg with cayenne
