becomo excited, and their rage found

the weak-minded Murud V. on the

The powera managed to hitvu it pro
claimed, through Tchernayetr oppixed
it und made hia army procluim Milan
King. Run-da, her propoHition tor it
joint occupation having been refuse:!,
demanded a inonlh'H armixtice. Thu

tilitica were re-hegiin, and dcnpilu
Tchenmyefl' nkill and tho gulluntry
of tho liuhniun nlliccra and volunteern
who did all tho fighting for Serbia, thu
Turks took Djuni and Aleximitx. Af
ter thia an armiHtice ot aix week had
been practically arranged between
Turkey and tho other poworn, when
Ruaaiu interjected (probably at tho ui
pculof Milan) her ultimatum, and the
dineuKione. ending in the abortive con
ference of Conatantinoplo wo precipi
tated. Thcro waa a diplomatic duel
between Englund and Huhbiii in which
Gorlschukofl decidedly remained a vic
tor. Kngktnd'a potdtinn wus thut the
treaties of 18S7 and 1871 (that idler
tbe Crimean war and thut uflur the
r'ruiico-1'rinu.iun wur amending it) con
tinued to ho tha bunis of her policy,
and that, if it were necessary, alio
would eo them respected ; the Cuur
maintained thut he hud no sinister in
tentions towards Constantinople, but
wished guarantees Inr the Eastern
Christians, being prepared to act ulone,
oven in arms to secure these. Austria's
position was one of neutrality so long
us her interests should not be menaced
by the creation of new autonomous
Siaten. Duly and Franco took no di
rect interest in thu dispute, (lurniuny
declared her willingness to let Russia
act within tho hounds of lion Interfer
ence with Prussia or Gerniun interest.
We recapitulate thu positions ol the
great ponersutlhe conference of Con
stuuliiiople as of interest now. The
conference ended in thu powers agree
ing upon recomtneiiilul iona which thu
Sultan rejected ns wholly incompati
ble with his dignify or even existence,
lie, however ordered analogous re
forms, prepared a constitution and
called a parliament. After this it be
como only a question of time when
war would break out, Husia complain
ing that Turkey either could not or
would not cany out her reftnms liir
the bcnelil of tier Christian subject ;
Turkey that Ilussia was lomcnting in
surrection in province and makingpro
text lor inimical interference. Both
romiilainta were probable well liiund-
ed. The moral dilferenoo in the value
of the complaint of the two powers,
however, ia considerable and obvious.
Russia complaiua of what she doc not
tie neve that Turkey will uo. mrs-ey
of w hat' she believes that Russia bus
done. Russia coca to war to compel
the Tnrka to behave towards their
Christian subjects as Russia thinks
Turkey ought to behave, lurkuy
goes to war to confute the right of
Russia or any other power to adtninia
ter ber government tor ber within her
Till BThKNOTII OF THE TWO.
Tbe general power of each of the
nations now arrayed against each other
irst demands attention.
Ilussia goes into tho w ar w ilh a popu
lation of 8ti,u86,000, a deceptive total,
of coarse, since it Includes the Kirghii,
Orientals, tc., that, so fur from con
tributing to tha naltou's strength in
t as of a war, form an element of weak
ness, demanding rare or even repres
sion. Her debt la placed at 11,604,
000,000. Her finance bare bad to be
nursed for aoreral yeara baek. and in
tho ovc.t of a war, upon bo slender u
balsuco docs her budget hinge, thut
Russia would hnvo to borrow largely
to meet tho interest of her debt und
supply deficiencies. Iter lust popular
loun waa not a success, it is true, but
thu duclurution of thu leading Russiuti
journalist, Kulliol!', " Wu must have
wur," counts for a great dettl us un as
surance thut popular feeling supports
tho Czar. In the essential mutter of
railroads, Russiu is belter situated than
she wu during the Crimcun campaign,
but the single trucks are not expected
by such good critics a II err Wickede
to stand thu strain of a cunipaign with
Thu inhabitants of Russia from twen
ty to liirty from the army, six yours'
service with the active army und nine
years in thu reserves being demanded
in r.uropcan Kiissiu. 1 nu regular

Total 44,467 l,04l,!ll l,04,7H
The army ulso hus 11)5,1-18 iioii-coin-butuiils,
240,838 horses und 2,G0ti gun.
To this niuy bu udded thu irregular
urtny (Cossucks, &u.), coiiluitiiug H,5U5
otlicers, Yil'l'JO men, und 5,(!'J8 non
eomhuluiits. These, as u mutter of course, ure
figures upon paper. It should ulso bu
staled that there uio doubts whether
the enfranchisement ol the surf, giving
the soldier something to livo for, has
made him more amenable to discipline,
to say nothing ol the spread of supping
sociaiislio conspiracies. Again, the
new army oigutiiznlion only dates
buck to October 1, 1871, ami after de
ducting from the strength of theurmy
tlie forces in tho Caucasus (10,000 men)
utid the armies of Orenburg, Siberia
and Turkestan (511,000), nuii mulling
ullowuticu tor gitrrisoiis thut must be
kept up, there can hurdly bu counted
upon lor service more than 500,000
mon. (A few year hence, when thu
system hus been gotten into working
order and the reserve tiro lull, there
will, ol course, ho another story to toll.)
The cunnon are remarkably good ; the
small anna are yet to bu tested.
Thu original pluu contemplated the
mobilization of lour corps, say 130.1100
men, with two more, or 05,000 men, in
reserve, and a cooperating force of
some 80,000 men working towards
Constantinople from thu snlu of thu
Cuiicusiib. Now, "including therein
torceuieiils und lenervou ut Kiev, the
the army proper contains 300,000 men,
with 120.000 mon in Ihu second line,
forty miles behind." (Such ure latest
mail advices ; wu think thu estimates
excessive.) Thu point is muile that
lionerui Nepokoitcliilnky, thu luinou
slrutegist, charged with the conduct.
ol the campaign, w ill not move w ithout
al IcusldlO.OoO men, In us uvoidiug tlie
error ot previous campaigns, where
the offensive wu assumed with an in-
Fucing thesu forces, Turkey hus in
thu Iront line, in thu 1'ohi uischu (in
Sileslliu, Vumu, Schiinilu, Ae.), some
thing over 100.000 men, somu 50,0110
along the Danube and 35,000 more near
Widilin, an array in the first line of
nearly 200,000 men. A lim e usstrong
is pluced upon the second line ot the
Balkans, aided materially (a it was
not half a century ago) by proper forti
fication Of Ilia duliles,the third line pass
ing from Adriunoplo to Philipopolis,
und forming a sort of intrenched camp.
As to the Turkish army, statistics
ure moro ahiindunt thun sutisluctorv.
Probably thu most trust won hy report
is that of the Allgimeine Xntung. It
due-lures tho pity to be small and much
in arrcur, hut the- food usually ample,
and thu barracks clean, spacious and
well ventilated. The artillery is strong
und the arsenals are upon tho whole
tolerably well orguui.ed. Resides her
heuvy purchuses of cuunon mid stnull
arms in Gormany, Kngluiid and the
United Status, Turkey run depend
upon two gun powder factories, an
artillery arsenal and a cust-steel luctory.
Tho engineer force is very eflicient.
Tho war strength of tho Turkish
army is pluced ut 203,700 men, with
105,000 in thu final reserve, 21,000 in
the second reserve, 32.800 in the mili
tary police and 120.00 in the third re
serve, a total of 48(5,100, The irregu
In ret are estimated ut 50.000 and ihu
auxiliaries ut 80,000. Of thu latter,
how muny could be counted upon, with
Kgyptuiixiotis to bo rid of ullegiance to
its suzerain and the principalities in
revolt or discontented ? On thu other
hand, the Sultan holds hi trump curd
us commander of the fuithlul, und hy
preaching, or thienlcning tu preuch, u
holy war, may compel the ussistunce
of Englund, assistance even more to he
desired than thut of the whole Ma

the root of a tree, where bis mother
had "holed up" in a atato ol partial
hibornulion when the first heuvy snows
came, and tho cold Iroze up tho spring-
holes. Tho old bears go into these
winter caves excessively tut, and aecm
so when they come out; but their long
fust and the nursing of the young soon
reduce them, so thut they often huve
a hard rub to keep ulivo if ho spring
is slow and their diet ot roots una hums
is held tightly locked by late frosts.
At such times they frequently become
vury bold, making repeuled attacks
upon tho farmers' sheep and calves.
Enos llrown lust spring bad five sheep
taken off in rapid succession. He there
fore stopped his farm-work, applied i
himself to trapping, and soon five bear
skins graced Ins shanty's wulls. His
sheep were avenged. During the spring
and early summer tho bears live by
their wits rather poorly ami are lit
tle hunted. They are shedding their
hair, so that tho fur is not in good
plight, their flesh is leun, and their
young accompany them about tho
woods, t he time to Degin to mini
them is when tho woodland berries
begin to ripen.
In the lute autumn bears are also
hunted wilh dogs, and although the
sHirt is not vury exciting, it ia tho
hardest imaginable work, llio moun
tains are rugged and Bleep in the ex

not easy at tlie best, when ono is ham
pered by a rifle, ammunition, and other
"lixin's." and is trying to keep up with
the excited dogs, tho undertaking re
quires a man of steel. When a bear
linds itself pursued, it takes off up the
steepest, most inaccessible places, and
over ihu very loftiest points in the
whole region, keeps on Irom peak to
peak across tho worst ravines and
through the densest jungles, fully
awuru that thus it will soonest ex
haust its pursuer, and finally escapes,
if ut all, through its superior endur
ance. The hunter, knowing this, fol
lows as best bo can with one or two
tough little dogs, meru whiffets, which
dash up und nip tbo bcur behind. When
Bruin turns around in amazement and
indignation, the Utile dog is not there,
but returns tho instant tho bear starts
on, and thus worriea it into stopping
and attempting to fight its minute and
pertinacious tormentor until the hun
ter con cs up and can shoot. A largo
dng will utluck tho bear boldly, and
bold on until bo is bugged to death
tho speedy and almost inevitable re
sult of his incautious courage. A bear
hunt of this kind ia full of adventure
and fuscinution tor the sportsman, yet
thu chancu of getting the bear in the
end Is a doubtful une. You are (tiro,
however, of a sinew-testing chase and
a nerve-testing struggle ut the end. If
an enraged beur is not a pleusunt fel
low to meet on his nutive hills, a
wounded ono is still less so, and tho
hunter must bu self-possessed and agile
to escapo tha formidable antagonist
that hus failed to full at bis first shot.
Enos llrown tells a story of an adven
ture of this kind bo and his "woman"
(Shokaniler nevei say wife) had when
a very largo bear submitted to bo shot

head down hill, and havo his throat
cut, and then suddenly revived, and
made exceedingly lively and sanguina
ry work for tho llrown family bclbro
consenting to yield up tho ursi.ie ghost.
Sometimes, moreover, a bear ia lost
through a provoking accident, such as
stupid dogs stopping to tree a porcu
pine, entirely losing truck of tho nobler
game, to the vexation ot the breuth
less hunter, who rushes up convinced
from tho tings' racket that a whole
den of bears awaits his conquest.

liasing tlie answer to " 1 s question
on tho proportion of digestible fodder
constituents in these several articles of
tedder, aa determined by numerous
experiments in Germany, we should
have the following results: caning me
feeding value of 100 pounds of cum

bo 175, ol barley 190, and of bran 175.
Therefore 8 pounds of bran would be
about equal tu 7 pounds, or 4 quarts ot

bran may not come so near thut of j
corn as is indicated by theso calcula
tions, but atill there can be but little
doubt that wheat bran at 65 cent per
cwt., ia a much cheaper fodder than
corn at 12, provided that the animals
thrive equally well on bolb. As to
the comparative effect of outs and
corn on the soil, in answer to"Farmer,"
it ia sufficient to consider that whilo
the weight of an average crop of oata
is but about 1,600 pnunds of grain,
that ot a crop of corn is about 2,750
pounds, and therefore, even if we do
not tuko into account the much greater
wuiifhl of the sulks and leaves ot tho I
corn as compared with tho oats, it is
evident enough that tbu eorn crop
must make a heavier draft on the sup
plies of plant food in tho soil than the
oats. Tho oats would, therefore, in
your orchard, rob tho apple trees of
much loss nutriment than would mo

Old Families. A very searching
investigation was carried on a lew
years ago in the North ol England by
twe lumilies who wero searching up
their respective ancestry. The strife
was great between bum, each deter
mining to look into antiquity further
than the other. One ot tbo families,
whoso name was Spencer, employed
an artist to paint an historic scene,
representing tho building ot the ark
and the loading up of the ship by Noah
and his sons with its multifarious and
various cargo. On tho gang-plank
leading to the deck ot tho ark two
men wore seen rolling up a lurge box,
on ono side of which was printed in
