tann and pfuotbold.
The following beautiful lines from Mrs.
Sigourney, give a lively and truthful picture
of life upon a farm:
Saw ye the farmer at his plow,
As ye were riding by?
Or wearied 'neath the noon day toil,
Whendbe summer suns were high;
And thought you that his lot was hard,
And did you thank your God
That you and yours were not condemned
Thus like a slave to plod?
Come, see him at his harvest home,
When garden, field, and tree,
Conspire with flowing store to fill
His barn and granary.
His healthful children gaily sport
Amid the new mown hay,
Or proudly aid with vigorous arm
His tasks as best they may.
The Harvest Giver is his friend,
The Maker of the soil,
And earth, the mother, gives them bread,
And cheers their patient toil ;
Come join them round their wintry hearth,
The heartfelt pleasure see;
And you can better judga how blest
The farmer's life may be.
Destruction of Rats
Several years ago, we took possession
of an ancient mansion, in which the rats
reigned supreme. The nights were made
hideous to us by their nocturnal rambles
and gymnastics. The revels that they
held banished sleep from all but young
eyes. A council of war was held on the
side of the bipeds, and several remedies
were proposed—but cats, were considered
the only means of defence; so two good
sized grimalkins were procured and the
conflict raged during a whole season. Many
of the aged of the tribe went the way of
all animal flesh, but the prolificness of the
females was too much for their enemies, the
cats. Another remedy was sought and
found : copperas or sulphate of iron, is very
obnoxious to rats. Mix it with white
wash, prepared in the common way, and
add the copperas until it is quite yellow.
Whitewash the whole cellar wall, sides and
ceiling, giving two coats of it if the un
derpinnig is not well covered at first.
Scatter the green crystals of the copperas
in every crevice and chink: in the walls;
throw it broadcast into the corners of the
rooms, and your rats will make a grand
stampede for other and more agreeable
quarters. At least that was the result from
our application of it. All night there was
hurrying and scurrying in ratdom ; a new
home must be sought. The next morning
the cats had rare sport in the wood-house
and barn; the rats were attacked, and for
ced to surrender hors ducombat. The
cats could not eat all their spoils in one
It is now six years since the copperas
whitewash, or rather yellow wash, was ap•
plied. Every Spring, crystals of copperas
are thrown broadcast about the cellar, and
no rat dares show his wiskered head. Oc
casionally a timid squeak or a feeble gnaw
ing is heard in the walls. The sounds are
from new corners, who soon beat a retreat.
There is no gamboling among the old raf
ters—no playing ball with butternuts, as
of yore, in the midnight hours. One
huge cat, of masculine gender. keeps watch
and ward era, thn promlara, but with all
his watching and prowling around, he can
not feed himself, and is forced to seek his
meals in the kitchen. In a closet where
wee mice delighted to creep and steal jel
lies and sweetmeats, bits of the copperas
were scattered, and not a trace of them is
now to be seen.
Last Autumn our neighbors were sadly
troubled with rats ; apples, parsnips squash
es and potatoes disappeared mysteriously,
or were devoured on the spot, but the con
tents of the boxes were untouched, The
copperas does not seem to poison them ; no
dead ones were found, except those brought
int by the cats ; but it appears to be obnox
ious to them, and so they "vamose the
Before this remady was applied the rats
were very bold—bad learned not to fear
us at all. They were everywhere ; and a
fond couple even dared to make a soft nest
in a Wheeler & Wilson sewing machine,
which was not in daily use. The click of
the wheel, as his ratship descended the
treadle at midnight to procure food for his
wife, revealed their hiding place, and they
were food for the cat. This occurrence
made us desperate; if our sleeping-room
was not free from their tread, something
must be done. Search was made for their
way of ingress and egress and behind a
huge wardrobe a large hole was discovered.
A zinc was nailed tightly over it, and since
then no rat has been heard within our
The copperas is an excellent disinfectant;
no better can be found for purifying old
cellars, drians, vaults, &c. It is used every
spring to sweeten the milk cellar, and a
saucer of it always sits in the wash-stands
and sinks. It is very cheap—only three ,
four or live cents per pound—Cor. Cour.
For Flies on Horses.
The Journal of Chemistry gives the fol
lowing as a preventative of horses being
teased by flies : Take two or three small
handfuls of walnut leaves, upon which
pour three quarts of cold water, let it infuse
one night, and pour the whole nest morn
ing into a kettle, and let it boil for a quar
ter of an hour. When cold, it will be fit
for use. The way to use it is to moisten a
sponge, and before a horse goes out of the
stable, let those parts which are most irri
table, be smeared over with liquor, viz :
Between and upon the ears, and neck, and
flanks, etc. Not only the gentleman or
lady who rides out for pleasure will derive
pleasure from the walnut leaves thus pre
pared, but the coachman, the wagoner, all
others who use horses during the hot
INFLUENCE OF LIGHT UPON PLANTS.
—The influence of light upon plants has
always been well known, and recently
some experiments made in France give us
some further knowledge of its influence
in its less obvious phases. A climbing
plant placed in a dark place continued to
grow, but did not twine in the usual way. Th e
experiment was repeated several times and
always with the same results, thus showing
that light was essential to its power of
tor the pith tolko.
The Right Kind of a Boy,
Tom dropped a large, fine red apple out
of the front window, which rolled pretty
near the iron railing hetwe..n our grass
plot and the streets. Tout forgot to pick
it up. Pretty soon two boys came along.
"Oh ! my," cried one, "see that bouncer
of an apple; let's book it."
The other boy urged him with a whis
per, "Shut up : the folks are looking," and
on they went.
A little girl next passed. She spied the
apple, and stopped, looking very hard at
it, then put her hand through the rails
and tried to reach it; her fingers just touch
ed it, she looked around, a man was com
ing down the street; the girl withdrew
her hand and passed on.
A ragged little fellow passed by soon
after. "That boy will grab the apple," I
said to myself, peeping through the blinds.
His bright eyes at once caught sight of
it, and he stopped; after looking at it a
moment he ran across the street, and pick
ed up a stick, he puked the stick through
the rails and rolled the apple near enough
to pick it up. Turning it over in his grimy
hands, I could not help seeing how lie
longed to eat it. Pic: he pocket it and
run ? No.
He came up the step and rang the door
bell. "I found this big apple in your yard,"
said the boy, "and I thought may be you
dropped it out and didn't know it was
there, so I picked it up and fetched it to
"Why did you not eat it ?" asked I.
'Oh !" said he, "it isn't mine."
"It was almost in the street," I said,
"where it would have been hard to find
"Almost is not altogether," replied the
boy, "which Mr. Curtis says makes all the
difference in the world."
"Who is Mr. Curtis r
"My Sunday school teacher. He ex
plains the eighth commandment, and I
know it ; what is better, I mean to stick
to it. What's the use of knowing unless
you act up to it ?" Here he handed me
"Will you please take the apple ?" I
said. "I am glad you brought it in, for I
like to know honest boys. What is your
He told me; I need not tell you, only I
think you will agree with me that he is
the right kind of a Sunday school scholar.
He squares his conduct by the faithful
Christian instruction that he gets here.—
A Beautiful Allegory,
Once on a time a litte leaf was heard to
sigh and cry as leaves often do when a gen.
tle wind is about. And the twig said :
"What is the matter, little leaf ?"
'The wind," said the leaf, "just told me
that one day it would pull me off ; and
throw me to the ground to die."
The twig told it to the branch and the
branch told it to the tree.
And when the tree heard it, it rustled
all over, and sent word back to the leaf :
'Do not be afraid, hold on tightly and
you ahsN not go off till you want to."
And so the leaf stopped sighing, and
went on singing and rustling. And so it
grew all summer long till October. And
when the bright days of autumn came, the
leaf saw all the leaves around becoming
very beautiful. Some wore yellow and
some were scarlet, and some were striped
with colors. Then it asked the tree what
it meant. And the tree said :
"All these leaves are getting ready to
fly away, and they have put on these colors
because of their joy."
Then the little leaf began to want to go,
and grew very beautiful in thinking of it,
And when it was very gay in color, it saw
that the branches of the tree had no colors
in them and so the leaf said :
"0, branch, why are you so lead-colored
and we golden ?"
"We must keep on our work clothes,"
said the tree, "for our work is not yet done,
but your clothes are for a holiday, because
your task is over,"
Just then a little puff of wind came, and
the leaf let go without thinking of it, and
the wind took it up and turned it over,
and then let it fall gently down under the
edge of a fence among hundreds of leaves,
and it never waked to tell what it dreamed
A little robin red-breast built her nest
in one of the shady trees just in front of
the house of Mr. S . Soon four
little robins filled the nest. Day after day
the mother fed them, and seemed to love
them very much, She used to sing them
such nice little songs, and sometimes ycu
could believe she was telling them pretty
stories about the beautiful green fields,
where she was going to take them as soon
as they could fly.
One day Mr. S 's house caught
fire; the tree was so near the house that
all said the nest, and the little birdies in
it, would be burned up if they did not fly
out. Yes, the old bird saw it too ; but her
little children were not quite old enough
to fly. The mother would fly to the nest,
and then start off, and seemed to say ,
"Come, come; try to fly, or you will per
ish." But her little ones could not fly.—
At length she saw it, and what do you
think she did ? You will hardly believe
me when I tell you ; but it is Trite true ;
she seemed to think that if she could go
and put her wings over her little chicks it
might keep off the fire, and save them.—
But whatever she thought, I will tell you
what she did. She took her place upoi
the nest, and covered them all up, and in
a few moments the flames grew so hot that
her and her little ones were all burned
alive. But do you think that robin loved
her little ones as much as Jesus has loved
you? Did she do as much fur them as He
has done for you ? Oh, no, no, no. Jesus
has loved you ten thousand times more,
and done ten thousand times more for you,
and yet, if you are not a Christian, you
have never loved Him for it—never,
NEVER attempt to form an opinion of a
a woman by her sighs.
BE good boys and girls.
