,Two ears like hairy wind-mill sails; .
A hoof to mark each lightning paw:
A voice like the sting of a saw ;

That sees for half a mite behind, . •
And never falls—with glances quick—
To guide the well-directed kick
That lays the luckless driver low,
And whelms him with Its weight of woe;
lie lives on thistles, weeds and sticks,..
With stubborn spells and titeless tricks
Caught-up in nature's slyest school, • .

The Greatest Conibination of Valuable Improvements Ever Presented
After the flattering experience of the past year, having ht , l a very large and extended sale. we
find that the THE RANSOM el/TTAIIL IA - universally conceded ti, be the most desirable Range of its
class In the market. Its' general features are the same as In the celebrated Ransom Range. which has
for years been - consttlered the finest Range made. It contains the Patent Expansion Broiling
Chamber, which Is universally acknowledged-to be the only sueeessrtil anti practical broiling attach
ment In use. It Is also furnished with Smylh's Patent Duple% Grate. This celebrated
Orate Is extremely simple in Its construction. It has Ytow been in active tr..' for Inclm than five years,
and In view of the universally successful experience of Its operation and duraldlity during that time,
as welt as the highly satisfactory results obtained by us in our own thorough trial of Its dualities, we have
no hesitation In pronotinclui it the only complete and successful arrangement for removlng.ellukers
and retuse front the tire-box Instantaneously, thoroughly and - eleanly,', while the degree of combustion
obtained has never. in our opinion, been equaled with any other style of grate.
TIIE:RANSOM COTTAOK is A thoroughly first-clime Range In all its portions and appointments,'l
while the price is extremely low. It is so constructed - that it can be changed from a Low Closet to a
Single Oval Range, by merely lifting the upper part /f the Range front i-ho Loa 12/met and placing It
nisei a set ororuamented legs. All sixes can also furnished with the tirnaniental Eleiated Shelf.
The large Baled Ash ran is taken out at the end of t e Range instead of the front—a much more eon.
veulent and cleanly arrangement—and [lei caps• lolls Warming Closet extends untlereeath the whole
Range. The lint Water Reservoir Is heated entirely froth the bottom. and is of a larger capacity than
will be found on any other Range of. this class.' All the minor details In the construction of this
Range have received the closest attention. It has highly burnished ends, Illekle.platen knobs of a new
antibeautiful pattern, nickle-plated panels, 'tickle-plated Towel Racks, and the niountlng and fittings'

Teething in the liorse—Molf
' In connecting' the teeth e withAle
*teased eyes we are not following the
foolish prejudice which attributes all
trouble of sight to the wolf teeth.
These teeth are harmless enough ;
yet the popidar prejudice-has a found
ation which it would be well for
horsemen f not to l ignore Most;di
.seases otthe eyes occur at the period
of life when the milk teeth are being
most rapidly shed and permanent
teeth are eoming up: To suppose
that a horse suffers nothing in cut-,
ting his teeth is a great mistake, - as
is shown by the frequently slow and
painful mastication of some young
animals by the occasioned dropping
of food in a lialtehewed condition,
and by the heat, redness and swelling
of the palate and. gums. - That red,
swollen and tender state of the roof
of the mouth behind the front teeth,
familiarly known as " Lamps" is
but an indication of this teething
trouble, and in not a 'few instances
it renders the animal feverish, weak
and by virtue of the general conges
tion of the bead, strongly predispos
ed to inflammation of the eyes. The
wolf teeth are in the mouth during
the greater part of this period, of
teething, and are usually shed toward
its completion'; so that °nee it is
hinted that these are the cause of the
trouble with the. eyes, the owner,
looking into the mouth seems to find
ample confirmation of the statement.
the - wolf teeth are, however,, the
most harmless in the mouth; hati ng
long ago reached their full develop
ment, and are but slightly inserted
in their sockets, while the great and
dangerous irritation attends on the
cutting of the large grinding teeth,
and, in the, male, of the tushes. The
presence of the wolf teeth in the
mouth at this time is an accident, and
not an injury. The temporary recov
ery often following their removal
would, have taken plade all the same
had they been left in the mouth, and
a later attack is just as likely as if
they were present. The excitement
attendant on teething is natural;
what we should ,guard against is its
excess. Any costiveness of the bow
els should be corrected by the feed
ing, or, if necessary, by one ounce of
Glauber's_, salts daily. Teeth press
ing painfully beneath tense, resistant,
painful gums indicate the need of the
lanCe ; teeth entangled on the Crowns,
of their successors should be romov- I
ed ; all excessive swelling, redness
and tenderness of the gums demand
lancing; and, filially, all unnecssary
excitement or exhaustion should'be
avoided.-=National Lice Stock Jour
al, Chicago. '")*
Pruning Fruit and Ornamental
Wp read a great deal about the
proper time of-pruning trees, and
pecially the apple tree. Sonic pre
ferfall,some mid-winter, some early
spring, but scarcely One recommends
the very best time in our humble
opinion Mid-summer: Doubtless
-sonic old fogies will epen their eyes
And .hold up their hands at such an
innvoation, and denounce it as an ab
surdity; but we'think we will be sus
by a majority of 'the 'live"
men of the day.
If .We desire- to iinpiove the forth
of a fruit tree and get 'rid of some of
the superflous wood, we should prune.
in winter; but if we desire fruit and
a perfectly hea!ed stump, we shouldt
prune from the fifteenth of June to
r the twentieth ofJ uly. Wp have done
this often with the happiest-results.
The fruit-beds form after this, and
opel.ation in, suddenly eating off its
growth produces buds, while the win
ter or early spring pruniug will pro
duce only wood.
In pruning ornanental trees in
midsummer, the bark, instead of re
ceding from the stump, grOtvs, over it,
and in a, few years completely
cover it and make a perfect amputa
tion. We have noticed. ' this; upon
our own premises as well as upon
those of others many times., This
pruning is done when the tree is ,tak
ing its mid-summer. " siesta," and
then wakes up, refreshed for another
start : , and the' bark gradually steals
over the stump as ifiaslnitned of the
shabby looking exposure. •
.When the tree is in full leaf, and
presents its .full form to us, - we can
see exactly where the pruning should
he done, in order that while the-over
growth may be removed, thi symme
try of the tree may. be .pxeserved.
Especially in mid-summer 'Nutting to
be preferred, first, to predisce buds
on fruit-bearing trees as; before stat
ed ; and second when laige limbs are
:Many gardeners already appreciate"
the valuable services of the common'
toad, and 7 adord them protection for
their insect,desttoying propensities,
while as many more, perhaps, are icr
norant of their usefulness. To' the
latter class it may be interesting to
know that toads live almost wholly
upon sluggish caterpillara,.`beetles,
and other insects, making the rounds
at night when the farmer is asleep--
-and the birds, too—and • the insects
are supposed to be having it all their
own way. English gardeners under.
stand these facts so well that toads
are purchased at so much a dozen,
and turned loose, and the best of it
is the toads generally stay at home,
so tlMt the gardener is not troubled
with dying his toads over again
very few days.
The toad can be tarried, and•will
even learn to know." its master."
and will come when called ; the,writ
er has not only bad such pets him
self, but could give other instances
of taming that have come under his
observation. Toads can be . made
very useful about the house, and will
do no little good in .destroying cock
roaches, flies :and other household
pests.—N. Y. Tribune.
' Plowing by Electricity.
Some interesting experiments of
plowing by electricity took. place the
other day at Noisiel, in- France, in
the park of the well-known Deputy
and chocolate maker, M. Menier.
The motive power was supplied to
the plow by a Gramme 'machine, it
self set in motion by water power,
which is abundant on M. Menier's
estate. The plow did about the same
work as if it were drawn by four.ox
en. It was a. Fowler plow, ivithix
shares. The motive power was sup
plied by a wire at a distance of near
ly half a mile. To a profane looker
on it was amazing to see a plow pro-
I Veiled by an unseen agency without'
teams or steam .: The Gramme ma
chine employed was the same that,
supplied- M. Menier's• manufactory
with electric light.
