they were readily exchanged for Itis
winter ilores. The Captain was the
proprietor of a wootlcn leg, with which
lie diltlv punched the vines into their
placet) and made them stay thero. The
result wan that the pioneer of cranber
ry 111111111) in this Stale (New .Tertiey),
all in due time, became a man of means,
and he ha refused 11,5110 an acre for
his bogs. 1 met the Captain a fovr
days ago, swinging along on hie) wood
en leg, as rosy-ebeeketl ar.d vigorotis
lookiug as a school-boy just let out for
a holiday. Ilo is popuhtrlv known as
the "Cranberry King." The tirst at
tempt to cultivate this fruit was mado
by Capt. Ucni y Hall, of Dennis, Mttsn.,
on Capo Ctxl, in the year 1812, and
the vines from which tho first crop
was gathered hare homo a good crep
ever since, and will afford a lair yield
this autumn. The cranberry -growing
district of New, Jersey Includes parts
of the counties of Ocean, Hnrlingtnn
and Atlantic, although some small por
tions of Monmouth, Middlesex, Cam
den, Cape May, and perhaps one or
two other counties, are adapted to the
cultivation of the Iruit, Tho greater
portion is located in what is known as
tho "Pines," wherein also lie tho char
coal regions, a tract containing about
1,20(,0U0 acres. Just now. tho cran
berry pickers are as busily at work as the
musijiiiltHjs are at work at them. Jn
walking over tho bogs tho ripo crimson
berries are so numerous that they con
stantly mash and nop beneath your
leet, while tho still more numerous
mosquitoes pop away at your face,
bonds and neck. I passed over a bog
of 100 acres in llurlington county
where the pickers wore as busy as
lices. There have been 400 men, Key
men and children at work at the same
time on this singlo hog. Each nick
from two to five bushels a dttv, for
which they aro paid 50 cents a bushel.
Tho men nverugo about four days a
week, and generally get drunk tho
rest, although of course they make a
better showing in some soetions. After
tho vines have been pretty thoroughly
gone over, tho water is let in, alio
bushels of berries rise to the surface
and float down to tho gates, where
they aro ruked out.
Tho cranberry, like all cultivated
fruit, is developing numerous varieties,
the principnl of wliicb. are the bell, of a
deep moiled crimson and somewhat
pear-shaped j tho white, which ripens
tho earliest and rots the soonest, and
tho common round borry, which is the
least liable to rot, and will koep longer
than the other two together. 'Hie
fruit, like all others, has its enemies,
the most destructive of which is that
popularly known as the scald or rot,
though some separate these two blights.

spread-out mass of rottenness, pulls
bis but over bis eyes, jams uis nanus
into his Dockets, and irocs home to fig
ure how he can economise enough to
trv some now oxnerimonls noxt year.
This scald business haa kept up so long
that it is becoming monotonous, and
not the Icutt remarkable peculiarity is
thu fact that no living mortal has buen
able to find out a preventive for tho
plague. Every imaginable experiment
was made ; water litis oeen lev on aim
oil sooner and later than usual ; all
sons ot fertilisers were tried, and many
and many a time It was bclievetl that
the remodv had been found. Finally,
I'rnfessor 't ay lor, tlte unueu mates
Microscopist of the Agricultural De
partment at Washington, was called
111 and ho visited the Cogs here and at
Cate Cod, and swnt weeks in probing
litr tho cause. Uis thorough investiga
tions showed that tho mot of tho evil
lay in the root of tho fruit, or rather
in the ground, which, in all cases of the
rot, wan lound lo be sour, causing fer
mentation amMecay in the berry.
This was established beyond a doubt,
and the annaruntlv aimnlu problem re
mained ot determining how the soil
should be sweetened. Tbe I'rulvssor
recommended lime, sand ami various
furtihxun. and never did the cranberry
season open Uton a mora bopelul set
of men than w ere the irrowcis a low
months ago.; Professor Taylor came
down in this county U hear the results
of following bis advice. Then was
something amusing lo occupying the
poslUOO 01 epexnavur inn mnarr,
Old Captain Webb, the "Cranberry
King," stumped in and sut near the
door, anil was made an honorary
member of the Cranborry Growers'
Association before ho could fairly
comprehend what was going on. Lime
had been used more than ever before,
and tho rot among tho cranberries this
autumn is greater than ever was
known. One grower recommended
snnd, and bis neighbor at bis elbow
announced that it wasn't worth a con
tinental; anothor gentlemen bad tried
plaster of Paris, and not a berry was
tainted ; -a rod-faced cultivator tried
the sum thing and declared his crap
wasn't worth gathering. The most
famous grower in the Association in
formed the audience that somebody
hail recommended jialt, and he bad
Btakod out a portion of his bog and
sowed it with that savory fertilizer.
.Some time ago he went out to see how
the vines liked it, and he'd be banged
if thero was a vino left. They had
been completely cleaned out by the
suit, and ho regretted very much that
ho couldn't romombcr tho name of the
gentleman who advised him to mako
that experiment. Auother enthusiast
solemnly asserted that ho had sat up
with and nursed a small bog for seven
or eight years, and he bad not as yet
gathered a sound berry from it. lie
is still at it, and, as ho has children
growing up, thero Is no telling how
much longer the bog will stand it
Now Jersey raises one-half the cran
berries in tlte country. Tho area an.
tier cultivation is about 6.000 acres.
The crop lor 1873 was some 125,000
bushels ; for 1874, 90,000 bushels, and
this year the yield is estimated at tun
or twenty thousand bushels less. This
steady deereaso in tho face of tho in
crease of area is duo to tbo devastation
of the rot and scald, which is still un
controllnblo, and is likely to continue
to rage until, liko tbo potato blight, it
shall have run its course and ex
ITS UTILIZATION FOR MANL'FACTt'RINU
PL'RPOSKH A.I IMPORTANT ELEMENT
IN THE PRODUCTION OF IRON THE
GREAT BUTLER "SPOCTER."
From an elaborate article on "Natu
ral (ins,'' published in tho Pittsburgh
Evening Tdcgrap A, of October 20th, we
gather tho lollowing which will doubt
less provo interesting to many of our
renders. Iie'crritig lo the enterprise
of tirutr. Bennett & Company, and
Spang, Cltnlfant it Company, in eou
ducting the gas from nxonhiirg, llut
ler county, to their works at Sharps
burg, Allegheny county, and utilising
it lor manufacturing purposes, the
writer says that it will provo that "the
discovery of petroleum has bocn to
Pennsylvania, and the wholo country,
a mine of untold wealth," and that the
introduction of "natural gas, which
lies in inexhaustible quantities in na
ture's mighty reservoirs throughout
the suction of Western Pennsylvania,
known as tho great oil-belt country,"
will work a revolution in manutactur
ing enterprise, especially in the great
"industrial center (Pittsburgh), with
its hundreds of rolling mills and work
shops." Although natural gtia wells
have bosii burning in various place in
the oil country for tbe past two years,
it was not until a few months ago that
capitalists could be induced to put
money id the doubtful experiment of
conveying the gas any distance lor
fuel purposes, for tho obvious reason
that they did not know but that the
flow would cease about tlte time the
machinery .would be ready to put it
into practical One.
A partnership was formed under the
general laws of the State, entitled thu
"Natural Gas Company, Limited," enpi
tul 1100,000, and the following well
known and enterprising firms and gen
tlemen comprise theC'ompany: Messrs.
Spang, Chalfunt A Co., of the .Etna
1 rou Works ; Messrs. G raiT, Dennett A
Co, of the Millvale Iron Works; Henry
llarley.Esq., of Titusville; J. J. A W. K.
Yandegritt, of Oil City ; and Captain
C. W. Itatchelor, President of the Ma
sonic Deposit Savings Bank, of Pitts
burgh. James I. Bennett, Esq., ia
President, and Capt. Batchelor Treas
urer ol the Company.
The distance from tno gas well to
Graft', Bennett & Cu.'s mill, at Millvale,
is nearly nineteen miles, as the lino Is
laid. Tho main is of six-inch wrought
ron. It will thus bo seen that one
hundred thousand feet of pipe were
required to reach the mills. Tho
capacity at tho well has a pressure,
upon a partial tost, ot uu pounns to
On Wednesday, Nov. 3, tho gas was
introduced into ono of the puddling
furnaces at the mill of Messrs. Hpang,
Chalfunt 4 Co., through a thrce qnar
tor inch pijic. Tho lurnaco was per
fectly cold, bill in twenty minutes alter
tho gas began to flow into the furnaco
a whito heat was obtained. With the
ordinary method of heating with coal,
five hours would have been required
to have produced a similar heat in tbo
Professor Wulh, Ihocelebrated chem
ist, who bas analysed tho gas, says its
heating power is 25 per cent, higher
than that ol good bituminous coal of
equal weight. Tho velocity of the gas
into the air is about ono minion cuiiic
feet pot hour from the woll, or consid
erably over a thousand tons per hour

The beauteous days through which
we are passing have a counterpart in
nights that are equally bewitching,
tbo former to be devoted to tbe delight
ing of the senses, the latter to ho given
up to tho enrichment of the intellect.
To exist simply is to enjoy tho first;
to bo profited by the last, one must be
wise and willing. Tho day 1 satisfy
ing enough as we find it, filled with the
placid glory of earth and sky, bracing
with cooling winds, gonial with mellow
sunshine It come on with sharp
frosts and reluctant suns, ripens into
noons of summer splendor, and wanes
into twilights gray with melancholy.
We regret each day ; yet, arrivod upon
its threshold, wo welcome every even
ing, tho cheerful radianco of it fire
etiiles. its pleasant household commu
nions, its social privileges and hours of
study and revelry, lapsing into the sun
products of slu mbi Various indeed
aro ,tho cmpliyytmn'tsrMI which those
precious evenings may bo wisely passed,
lor there ia wisdom a woll as pleasure
iu all tbo simple diversions that bright
en tbe homo and mako it joyous to the
occupants, aud they commil a grave
error who would regulate tbo step of
innocent youth and contented age to
the pace of a funeral tntin. But of all
these there is none to supply the place
of books. Those, in their multiplicity,
fulfill all desires, quench all t hirsts,
feed all appetites. Their entertain
ment is constant, their cost trifling,
their benefit coextensive with tho
memory. As a moral physician wo
should preseribeforthedisrdcr which
this or that fond parent remarks in hi
boy a brain-wash ot books, tobetnkon
hourly between supper and betllimo.
It is very much more effective than
morning cocktails, precisely as the
ounco of prevention outvalues the
ound of cure. But books, liko all
medicines, should be taken with dis
cretion. Wo Should tear for tho pa
tient who consumed Ned Buutlino and
Shakespeare in equal proportions, and
wo should despair of one who inter
preted literature as chiefly tho stories
of Mrs. South worth. For the same
reasons wo should expect much of
youth spent in the society ol such
books as Hawthorne wrote, and in the
study of the great master works of our
language. A century ago it was the
case that most men who rend were
scholurs, since books were rare and
trash seldom found a publisher. Now,
however, thought having become large
ly morchrfndiso, many who are vast
reader are in no sense scholars. Itis,
therefore, of the utmost importance
that youth should not ho left to read
ut random, but should Imvo ncciiratc
information as to what is worth at
tention and what had best bo omitted.
Parents can tlo no wiser thing towards
assuring tho future of their children
that, to provide them with good books;
"good," not in the sense in which the
word is applied to the trash that is fre
quently collated in Sundny school li
braries, hut good in their information,
style and power to entertain. Than
this wo may be reasonably sure there
ia no better nor easier method of keep
ing young men and some young wo
men, too within tbe influence of the
lamily and away from the evil associa

it is worthy of remark that few tastes
aro so readily acquired a that for read

Tho song of a bird is uttered solely
for tho pleasure of listening or being
listened to on the part of tho songster,
and beam no relation whatever to any
preceding or subsequent movement of
tho bird ; and we tuerolbro claim that
the song of the bird is an expression
of melody that gives pleasure to itself

which induces mankind to cultivate

exclusively vocal. A bird, when ting

something clso at the same lime. If
busy feeding, it quits work, and taking
up a position that hotter suit it, the
bird commences its song, and repeats
tbe same until weaned with lis repiti

place. When, however, it is busy feed
ing, tho low chirp and an occasional
twitter indirato, if alone, that it is talk

it is talking to thorn ; for a bird sur

Walking vs. Trotting Horse.

plains that all the premiums offered at
agricultural fairs for Ihe porlormance of
burses go lor trotting or running ana
nono for walking. Ho says the various
agricultural societie suy nothing of
walking, which the tarmurs are most
interested in. I have often wondered
why that was overlooked, and had
hoped that ome one would bring it
bolbro the societies. What benefit is
raco horse to a farmer? If be want
to run or trot him for premiums or
stakes, it will not do to work him a

Artificial flower are one of those
characteristic feature of our modorn
civilization which it is nut only diffi
cult but almost impossible to trace to
their exact origin. At least, their
muniilacture bas introduced a want
that people now feel as strong a they
do the need of coal. It tueras that
they were first made by ladies and in
stituted as an amusement as much for
profit as pleasure, having for it ob
ject the cutting of artificial flowers
from Swiss muslin nainsooks, a nne
material resembling linen. Imagina
tion can depict the fine ladies of two
hundred years ago congregating to
gether and industriously Betting to
work over what was then but a pas
time, but ha since grown into one ot
the gival industries. The ladies of old
used these artificial flowers for much
the same purpose a they are applied
to-day, for bead dresses of different
kiuds and ornament to hats, and also
the dress generally. In addition to
these uses, they aro largely used at
present in tho Roman Cat bolic churches
in Europe and this country, and where
one might havo supposed he saw a
great abundance of elegant real flow
er heaped up in bountiful profusion on
the altar, there was, in reality, only
colored and painted Swiss muslin or
the well known naiusooK. lit tue
Catholic church, also, girls taking their
first communion wear a handsome
wreath of artificial flowers, while the
boys going for the first time to th
same ceremony carry largo boquct of
similar flowers in their hands.
Boon after the ladies Commenced lo
do tho work with their scissors, the
leniand for tbe new flowers became
all tbo rage, so much so that tools were
invented and tbe mapulacturo ol arti
ficial flowers was actually established, j
In a well organized establishment ot
fair proportions there aro at least not
less than 1,500 of these tools, and the
entire number of them is constantly
employed in the onlinary daily routine
Tbo muslin is laid in several thick
nesses on a block ot lead, and cut out
with thoso dies ; each flower, leaf and
sprig necessitate a separate die. Tbe
next process is the coloring, a most
delicalo task, a all the fine tint and
shade of the flower depend upon the
result of this work. Tbo leave, when
dry, aro ready for curling, or the giv
ing to them of the requisite shape pre
paratory to the next stage in the man
ufacture. When all the different sizes
ot tho flower' leaves are curled into
the proper shape, the heart or seed of
the flower is formed as a base, and then
tho leaves or piece tied around with
fine floss silk, or else posted in their
proper positions until the flower is fin
ished. Stem are made by winding
cotton and paper or gauze around a
wire. Spirals aro the result of twist
ing paper together and arevry pretty
combination with loaves and flowers,
esecially among vine. The number
of bands employed in a factory, taking
a it basis one giving occupation to
thirty girls, would be about in the fol
lowing ratio: A forewoman, to gener

receives the same wages ; one cutter,
who has 112 to 115 por week ; some
six branchers, who get from 1 8 to f 12;

1UR VESTIXQ POTA TOES.
Various opinions exist as to when is
the propo time to harvest potatoes.
Some believe that it i best to let them
remain in the ground at long apmi.
bin before digging, thinking thai l bey
keep better than after they are dug.
Upon dry ground, provided the wea
ther continues dry, quite likely this
would be a good way to manage, but
almost alway in autumn we have
beavv rain which thoronirhly wet the
ground and keep it saturated much of
tbe time. In such coses the potatoes
would be likely to decay. If, more
over, they were uon a wot clayoy
pioce of ground, the danger of decay
would be far greater.
Other persons practice digging their
potatoes aa soon as thoy are ripe, and
Elace tbem in a cool dry place. We
ave tried this method for sevoral years
and met with better results than by
the old method of letting them remain
till lato in the ground. We have dug
tbem the last of August or the first of
September, and during tbe rest of tbe
month, and put them in the cellar.
They kept well, and decayed but very
Iittlo, and were nearly at good the next
summer as when first dug. One ad
vantage in Jigging them before the
autumnal rains como on, is that the
potatoes aro smooth and bright, and
the dirt does not stick lo thorn, and if
dug and housed in a pleasant day, there
i very Iittlo dirt or moisture carried
in with them. If left in the ground
after they are ripe, they become wet
by the rains, and the dirt sticks lo
them, and they do not look so nice nor
are they so mealy a when dug earlier.
If the weather should be warm very
likely they will rot badly, and those
which remain will bo sodden, misera
ble things to eat. If potatoes are left
in tbe ground after they are riiie, it
should' be no longer than till they bo
conveniently dug, unless they aro upon
dry land, and tbo weather continues dry
Some may be afraid to dig potatoes
so early, lest thoy should ret. We
feared that this would be the case bo
fore we tried it, but after a thorough
trial during sevoral years, we feel con
vinced that they koep tar better and
aro of superior quality. It looks rea
sonable that tho time to dig potatoes
is as soon a they are ripe, the same as
we harvest all ether products. Apples
are not benefited by remaining on the
tree after tbey are well ripened. Af
ter riiwning. the noxt ttago is to begin
to decay, and they koep the better if
gathered .before quito luliy ripened.
Our grains and vegetables gonorally
we gather as soon as ripe, or a soon
astheycensctogrow. Now, we would
advise all to dig their potatoes as soon
a they are ripe, and house tbem in
shallow bin or casks. If any feel
afraid to risk all their crop, let them
try part of tbem and ee which lot
keep tbe best. A writer last year
recommended that potatoes should be
kept in the ground, not only as late as
possible, but even all winter, claiming
that the earth wo their natural ele
ment, and beat preserved them. All
that we nee that 1 objectionable in this
view, is tbe proposition to keep them
tin the ground all winter, or till late in
the tall, even. It the earth coma re
main dry, we do not doubt that, if pro
tected from the frost, they would koep
well. We thought his suggestion that
tbe earth ts the natural element of the
potato and it preservative, worthy of
remembering and trying. Now, would
it oot be woll to try potatoes packed
in dry earth in boxes or barrels, and
even upon tbe bottom of the cellar?
We have noticed that potatoes which
hsppened to ho covered with dirt upon
the bottom of the cellar, kept nicely,
and appeared much fresher in the
spring than others) which were uncov
ered. This suggestion is worth acting
upon, and may be of considerable val
uo. Exchantt. '

Your once-loved daughter,
Upon reaching this village, Mis
Russell was met by Horlon Hurst.
They proceeded to the house of Mrs.
William Fillcy, a sister of Hurst's, and
about 3 o'clock in tbo afternoon were
married by the Rev. Mr. Young, of the
Methodist Church. Afterwards they
went, in company with Mrt. Fillcy
and a young gentleman, a friend of
Hurst's, to the village tavern, where it
had been arranged to take dinner.
They wore nearly through the ropast,
which bad been very liko a wedding
least, when tbo door of the dining
room was burst in, and farmer Russell,
pale with rage, and a singular glitter
in his eye sprang into tho apartment.
Hit duugbtur esosu hastily and ran to
wards him with outstretched arms, but
he threw her ashle and sprang upon

He grasped Hurst by the throat, but
tbe young man threw him off and com
menced backing toward tbe door.
Russell seized a knife from the table,
and getting between Hurst and tbe
door, attempted to stab tbe, young man.
Hurst received tbe thrust in bis arm,
and seeing that tbe old man was bent
on murder, drew a revolver and warned
him to stand back. Russell did not
beed tho warning, and continued to
make deadly lunges with the knife,
llui-st received many ot these in his
arm and shoulder. Hurst't sister es
caped from the room during the melee,
and the young men present seemed
paralyzed with terror. At last Hurst
pushed his assailant back from bim
and levelled tbo pistol at bim. Hi
wife at that instut sprang between tho
men just as her husband's pistol wa
discharged. Tho ball entered her brain,
and she fell to the floor and expired
without saying a word. The report
of tho pistol brought a number of per
sons into the room. Hurst had fallen
on his knee beside his wile's body,
and after several times frantically ap
pealing to her hy name to look up and
sieak to bim, bo rose to bit feet, and
before a band coultl bo extended to
him, shot himself through the head,
and he fell dead try the sido 01 his vrif'e.

SOME PHILOSOPHICAL HE
FLEC710SS. There is a famous line in "Virgil"
which may bo freely translated thus :
"Perhaps hereafter it may delight u
to remember evon these things also."
It was spoken to the weary band of
.F.ncas, who had sailed so long over
stormy sess, mot to many baffling dis
asters ; but it belongs to us, aa well a
to thoso old heroes. Thore is scarcely
any trouble so dire that there la not a
certain balf'-molancholy pleasure in re
calling it when it is all over. While
they aro passing, our woes aro very
apt to seem interminable ; but tbo slow
days goon tbo weeks, and the months
and, at last, we have ceased to suffer,
and happiness bas spmng up like a
flower in our pathway. Human pain
it a hard thing to contemplate, and
yet if it endure but for a night, and
joy comoth in' tho morning, we can
moot It nravoiy. Aor should an Im
mortal soul lie conquered by any mor
tal woe. Wo bar nover been cheated,
ays Emerson, by tny other every,
man who is cheated bat cheated bim
elf; and we can never bo wronged
unless we ourselves consent to it
These sentences seem unlruo to tho
hallow reader; for their truth lie
deep in the foundation of things. Itis
because the immortal part' of us is all
which seems lo the philosopher of val
ue, that any merely temporal lorn ap
pears not worth reckoning. Does

left all that behind us, and gon on.
