Death Valley. .
Tho Bcsvcr (Utah) Entervrht has
the following respecting a rocent visit
to this noted valley : The Valley of
wcain a spot almost as torn bio as
tho prophots -alley of dry bones lius
tisl north ot the old Mormon road to
California, a region tbir .y miles long
by thirty broad, and surrounded, ex
cept at two points, by inaccessible
mountains. It is totally devoid of
water and vegotntion, and tho shadow
of a bird or wild beast never clurkons
its white, glaring sands. Tho Kansas
Pacific itnilroud engineers discovered
it, and also some papers which showod
tho fate of the lost Montgomery train,
which come south from Bait Lake in
1800, ('uidud by a Mormon. When
near Luath Vulley, sotno fa mo to the
conclusion that tho Mormons know
nothing about the country, so thoy
appnintod one of their number a loud
er, snd broke off from the party. Tho
loader turned due west; so with tho
pvoplo, wagons and flocks ho traveled
three days and then descended into
the broad valley whoso treacherous
mirago promises water. Thoy reach
ed tho cciilro, but only the while sand
bounded by scorching pcuks mot thoir
gsr.o. Around the vulley they wan
dorod and ono by one the mon diod,
and the panting flocks strolohud them
selves in death under tho bot sun.
Then the children, crying for water,
died at thoir molhors' breasts, and
wilh swolcn tongues and burning
vitals, the holploss motliern'followud.
Wagon after wagon was abandoned ;
And strong men tottered and died
Alter A week's wandering a dozen sur
vivors found some wator in tho hollow
of a rock in tho mountain. It lasted
bat short time, when all diod but
two, who escaped out of tho valley
and followed the tiral of their former
companions. ' Kighly-sevon families,
wilh hundreds of animals,? porished
bore ; and now, after Iwotily-thrco
years, tho wagons stand still completo;
tho. iron work and tires are bright,
and tho" shriveled skeletons liosido by
sido . . ... ,
A littlo knot of ladies wsre discuss
ing the subject of marriage, Ono of
the party, singlo young lady, said,
"Matuhrs are made in heaven."
"Very likely," was tbe) quiet rejoinder
ol a niarrivd lady ( "aod thoy axo of
ten flipped in the other pines.
Food for Children. -
"She Is such a dainty little thing 1
don't boliove sbe'll eat it," said the
mothor, as a plute of roast beef and
nicely mashed potato was placed bo
fore her child. So a piece of pound
cake and of rich pastry was provided
for the "dainty lilt's thing," of which
she made herdiunor. I Ins was at an
open-air picnic, or carapmecling rather
where everybody hue, or. ought to
navo, a wholcsnmoand sharp appetite,
both for spiritual and physicul aliment.
Ad hour after this occurranco, as we
sat under the sermon, a brisk crack
Hing in tho rear cuuscd us to look bo
hind for a momont, and thoro sat th
"dainty littlo thina" devourine candv
nt a rate that would give dyspepsia to
an ostricn, aim wa wondered if that
mothor did really possess L'ood coin
mon sense. When a child has no ap
.:.-C ! I I. r "
peine lur jiiuin, wiioicsomc loou, some
thing is wrong in, the brain of the
mother. Why, look at tho facts of
tho Caso. lor tho first six or eirli
years of a child's lifo it doos nothing
out sieep, est, piuy ano grow. Tho
vory law of crowtUumd assimilation
L'lvcs it a sharp craving for aliment.
and the craving is fed by sound sleep
and by constant activity j unless its
digestive organs nave been tampered
wiiu uy ecus aim uijuuictouB nanus,
thero will nothing ail iis appetite
Just hero is tbe difficulty. To secure
a unci respite candy or cake or pastry
is put Into the hands of tho baby, on-
til it cries for it, and will be sutisfied
with nothing else. It may bo that
tho foundation of this longing for
sweets has been laid in infancy by
mixing that abomination, soothing
run, with the baby s milk, as it is
iometimes done by ignorant mothers
si that tho child s digestive organs
lave been bewitched from its earliest
rilar-ry, und il nevor knew tho bite of
lormitt hunger, or the sutmlaction of a
'good square meal." Uno can toll
such children by a glance at the teeth,
is quickly as a jockey can tell the ago
( a horse by Its teeth. A shining row
a unstained pearls in a juvemlo mouth
11 quick witness ot wholesome and ree
ulur food, of early and long sleep, of
sound and easy digestion, und every
child ought to huvo just such an ivory
; Tbe growing food is milk ; this wilh
wgotables, fruit, bread, nnd much of
U10 various grains should constitute
ihe principal portion of a child's nu
triment. Many parent, we think un
visely, allow their children abundance
cf meat. This makes the child rest
less nnd Impatient of control: il has,
ii fact, the same effect on children
llint corn has on young animals. It
nukes thorn chalo to and fro within
their narrow bounds just as bears and
tigers do in their iron cagos. Gram
inivorous animals, tho horso, tbo cow,
tho sheep, aro mild and docile, wbilo
tho carmvora aro nerco, agilo, and
lean. Children wbo live on bread and
milk and vegetables will, as a coneral
rule, he rnoro amiablo, more obedient
nnd fuller in flesh than those who eat
large qtiantics of moat. Kcgularily in
feeding ehildren Is grout importance.
A child may form a habit of eating six
or eight times a day, or it may learn
to saiislv its appetite at tho thrco rcg
ulur meals. If these however, are
more thsn fivo hours spart tbore should
be a slight lunch between, long enough
bcloro the succeeding meal not to take
tho edgo from tho appctilo. Sitting
up late at nirht, unduo excitement,
and activity just before rotiring, will
get almost any child into a nervous
condition, nnd thus crcato a morbid

Karly to bed Is a sate rule lor every
body, especially for the young, nnd if
they wakon early, vory woll, but by

those who attain their growth slowly

wakon a growing child out of sound
sleep. As many parents depend on
tho services their children are able to
render, if the boys and girls must be
up surly in the morning, they should
bo compelled to retire bctimos. Uno
reason why children clamor for cako
and pie so much is doubtless because
the bread to which they aro accus
tomed is so poor. It Is tasteless, or
sour, or stalo, or heavy, or something
besido swcot, light, and appetizing.
We are sorry to believe that in the
majority of families the bread Is, as a
rule Inlciior in quality, snd often posi
tively bad. Those mothers who will
have on their tables the best of bread
will bear testimony that their children
do not clnmor for cake or dainliva.
Wo may profit by the example of
royalty. The little princes and prin

lor heavier prouw than aro expected
by the English cattle-feeder, wbo ia
satisfied if ho obtains the same price)
per pound ns he gives, basing bis pro
fit solely on the increased weight
which bo is able to put on tho animal.
Tho present high prico of beef in
England docs not much increass ll a
profits of the feeder, for tho animals
cost him a proportionate increase on
old prices. . liven with tho present
low prices, our farmors can obtain a
littlo more per pound than tbey gave,
and it is an open question which each
cms must decide lor himself, whether
the murgin will pay for the Pasture '

it is bsd policy to allow an animal
lo fall off in flesh before going into)
Clio burn-yard lor the winter, for it
will take twico as much food to re
place it as would have been roquircd
to keep it there. After Iho first few
heavy frosts, tbe grass will have lost
much of its nutritious taluo, and al
though tho animals may bavo as
much as ll.cy want to eat, yet il will
not umiak tho needful nourishment
to supply the waste of tho sysloin.
Al such a time a littlo extra food will
pay much better than during the win
ter. A small portion of meal or bran
ted each day, will prove a good invest
ment for eithor dairy or laUoning
stock. Independent of tho loss in tho
oondiion of the stock, there is a losa
