These were , the *Ords which the
General of . the -- Franeiseans had
spoken to the young iFreneh monk,
Brother Eupltrastua, when the latter
had-applied to be sent as a missionary
to China ; and as the two were alone
in 'the confessional, the good but
shrewd old man added gently 'I
have watched you, tupltrasius, and
love you as a son ; ,that t f is why I
should like you, to: know yourself.

'That's it,' said ,the old man in a

do by the desire of being revenged
on her. You could 'not endure to

'I will pray for strength, Father,'
faltered Euphrasius, almost inauli

for some minutes longer, till, having
received absolution for the sins he
had confessed, he arose and walked
off slowly to his cell.
As there'are many forms of human
weakness, so the methods-.of proba
tion must be many and divers. Some
have to be tested in the self-denial
of creature comforts, some in endur

seemed to be not much need for try

Henri de,Garderoy, as his _ name was
in the- , orld, had been one of the
most dashing-officers in the French
army. He had won his' captain's
epaulets in the Crimea; but, then
coming home, he had learned; that
the girl to whom he bad plighted his
love had, during his absence, become
affianced to another man. The blow
had well nigh driven him mad.' An
gelo de Montcroix, young'• lady
in question, was of higb birth, beau
tiful, fliscinating, and gifted in-many
ways. Henri. would'have Staked his
life on her constancy ; and yet, in
spite of her plighted troth, and even
as he was risking his life in war, win
ning laurels which were only precious
to him because he hoped to lay them
at her feet, even thin she was untrue
to him and'gave herlkind to a man
of no great merit, all for money!
The contempt he felt for the girl
who had betrayed him did not serve
to cure Henri of his love. Angelo
appeared to be indifferent for his re
proaches. At the one interview
which they had after-his return 'she
offered no excuses lor her condua

NM dead, and she bowed her head
to his - scorn ; but this did not wipe
out" - her image from his heart. He
lost all pleasure in his career and left
the service, to go and wander in an
aimless way-over the world. Whilst
on his travels he read in_the papers
of! Angele's marriage to her new
lover, the Barob do ROsenlieim, a,
banker nearly twenty - years older
thOr herself, and soon afterward he
learned - that she was becoming one,
of the gayest leaders of fashion in:
Paris. Thereupon he_ returned to
France, capitalized his fortune, and
entered a seminary to' study for
priest's orders. Angele had been
callous to the lustre of his military
glory, he „would now shame her by
his renunciation of all wordly things,
and be.constant -to her in the en
forced celibacy or priesthOod. Such
were the thoughts uppermost in, his
mind when he prepared for ordina
tion; .such were the thoughts which
still inspired him when; a - year after
taking, priest's fall orders, he gave
up all he possessed to the Franciscan
order and assumed the tirown'eowl
'and sandals. Truly, by that time
there was no more in , him of rancor,
as men usually understand rancor.
He prayed morning and night that
Angelo might be happy,but the Gen-,
eral of his order had rightly divined
that his ;sound was not 'healed, and
that the sentiments he cherished to
ward his faithless love, generous as
they might seem to 'men, would to
the scrutinizing eye of God appear

should pardon those who wrong ass;

. While Euphrasius wus preparing
himself for , the career of a missionary,
Angelo de Rosenheim was leading a
by no means happy life in Paris.
Little as the desolate monk suspected
it, she loVed , him as deeply as 'he
did hut and she had suffered, as much
is he from this love,. though her
pings were of another kind. In her
case there was remorse and the bitter
humiliation of 'feeling that she was
despised for her mercenariness. Poor
girl, she had never given a tliought
to money matters as long as she her
self bad been_concerned ; but there
had been heavy trouble in her amily
on account of a scampish brother.
And she had been compelled to seed
fide herself for-this scapegrace. An
geles father, the Count de lifonteroix,
was a squire orno very large estate,
who enjoyed amlonorable compete'',

resources that he hoped to give . , his

TOWANDA, BRADFORD CO
spendthrift, who, from the day when
he got a commission in a cavalry reg
iment, started at a gallop down the
road to ruin. He ran into debt, and
had to be paid out again and again.
First his own portion was swallowed
up, then his sister's.; after this the
Count had' to mortgage his esiiites -to
meet another disgraceful scrape. At
last, there came a day When Philippe
de litontcroix, in order to obtain
_money which his father could no
longer give him, committed an offence
which might have brought him with
in reach of the criminal law. He had
to be saved-once more, and the only
way to do this now was by his sister
making a rich marriage. The Baron
de Rosenheim ' the Count's banker,
who had seen Angele, and admired
her, declared himself at this juncture
and preposed for the girl's hand.
He had heard of Philippe's .scrape,
and with considerable delicacy he
adVaneed the Count a large sum of
money without any security at the
very moment when it was most need
ed. Angelo, for her father's sake and
her brother's, responded to this gen
erosity_ by consenting to become the
Baron's wife; and when the marriage
seti,lements were-drawn up shortly
afterward, the banker cleared all the
mortgages off her father's property,
gave her penitent brother a fresh
start in life by sending him as man
aging agent to a cotton plantation in
Louisiana, and settled a million of
francs on Angele herself.
-It was under these circumstances
that Angele !clad t 6 meet Henri de..
Garderoy i when he returned froth the
Crimea. Her: love for ow had never
abated a moment • on 'ate contrary,
it had expanded till it filled her whole
being and tortured her. How hand

came back to her, having heard no

did so at length without faltering. -
Nor would she accuse any but her
self. Having chosen heeown : part,
she had the fortitude to 'take sill the
blame on herself ; :she - did not dis
close, her father's and her brother's
trouble; and not a word escaped her
to show:that she looked' upon her
coming Alliance as a sacrifice. ' Her
husband's honor was now to be her
'own, and she would not suffer him to
appear odious or ridiculous in any
man's eyes. So when Henri, in the
paroxysm Of his despair and anger,
flung at her the words, 'Jilt! ,you
.yourself for money!'- she
answered ::'I shall at all events be
the taithful wife of a man whom I

her husband in the latter's splendid
Paris Mansion. Then came -the news
that Henri de Garderoy had thrown
up his commission to become a priest,
and this added another .weight to
Angele's load of secret misery.
For she had been hoping and pray
ing that he might forget her. Some
may think that women 'lover make
such..wishes in real .earnest, but al
ways derive ;some consolation from
the constancy of those whom they
had wronged'. Angele de Rosenheim,
however,.had not wronged. Henri in

that vaiich his' lips (tared never. re

in her dutY by not making full avow

One morning, when 'Angelo had
been ;breakfasting with her husband
and children, the Baron, looking a
his watch, said, 'lshall not go to th
office just yet, for I expect the visit
of two monks, brothers of the Church
Mission, who are coming to me for
My yearly subscription.
'How much do you give?' asked
Angele, whose attention was not yet
quite awakened to the'subject. _
'A thousand francs generally.'
'And do the monks always,come
for the money themselves?' -
"Yes, it's their rnle, I believe. ,The
Superior of the Missionnry College

''Does the Superior say to what or

!Yes, Franeiseans—Brother Baboi

herself. was beeutifully at
tired_ in a gray silk trimmed
with - pink satin,and lace. Her beau
ty was then in its prime, full of
youth, sweetness., and matronly dig
nity. Nevertheless, her face blanched
or all color, and her eyes were almost
haggered, as she rose to her feet on
recognizing Henri de Garderoy.
Henri, too, knew her at once, and
stood as if transfixed near the door.
He bad thrown back his hood, and
his thin, pale face, surmounted by
his shaven crown and small fringe of
brown hair, looked like that of a - man
,risen 6om his grave or descended
frOm the picture of a saint. For a
moment his wan cheeks became tinged
with pink itt.d a flash vivid as light
ning in the night shot through his
eyes: - But he promptly remembered
his vow of humility,and with lowered
glance and arms folded, stood mo
tionless, though his head swam.
Poor .EuphraSius ! this shock had
come - upon him more heavily for be
ing unexpected. Ife had gone out
with his' brother; Babolinus,
dience to his Snperior's orders; but
as it was Babolinus who had, to col
lect the money, Euphrasius had not
asked;where they were going. Monks
do not 'converse' with each other in
the streets, and Euphrasius had en- -
tered two houses before this one with
out knowing, or indeed caring, who
be owners were.
Luckily for him, it was Babolinus
who did the talking, and very expert
he was at the woik7for he was a friar
of the jocose order. Not all the ab
stemiousness of convent life, 'or its
rigid discipline, had been able to
freeze the source whence his good
humor flowed in a - limpid ,stream.
He tasted-as much as other monks,
prayed like them, toiled like them,
but be was dlways cheerful ; and he
had been ordered now to go out to
China because men like himself, bub

with its church, its school, its dbmen

Brother Babolinos was the nominnl
director Of.these institutions, but the
real, fictive manager of them all was
who had more-energy,
culture and knowledge of the world
than his senior. He bad found Seiho
a wilderness, spiritually speaking; in
two years he had raised it to a con

order which , made it enviable in the
sight of surrounding. Chinese comma
. One man may work wonders when
there breathes in him a sacred fire.
Euphrasius had practically converted
the whole population 'of Seiko, to
'Christianity,-and . in doing so had
stripped them of many prejudices
which kept them backward In the
management of their worldly affairs .
He taught them improved methods
of agriculture, enterprise and honesty
in - trade, cleanliness, sanitary laws ;-
he -made them des'Foas of useful
knowledge, and instilled into them
all sorts of ideas tending to their
general enlightenment. His school
was crowded with children • his did
pensary and: hospitals helpe d to stifle
in the , germ many of , those fearful
epidemics which are continually dec

in. his Chnrch, Sunday

he addressed large and eager congre

Babolinus had . never - been able. to

_ Alone with Brother labolinus in
a hostile country, two hundred miles
away from the nearest European set
tlement, Euprasius had to cope with
these difficulties and dangers as he
could; b.ut, his very weakness was in.
some way a protection to him,
on the whole he got on very fairly
till a fellow-countryman of his, a cer
tain Monsieur Rigobert, came, and
settled in the village as- a general
dealer in European wares, a cook,
publican, fiddler, dentist; surgeon,
and performer of conjuring tricks;
This Rigobert was not at all_a bad
fellow ; so far as heart and intentions
went. He wanted to =lke money,
and would have been content to make
it honestly so tong as thii was possi
ble.. A small, crop-headed, daplier
little fellow, nimble as an ape, garru
lous as a magpie, and always smiling;
he boasted a hundred ttlents, and
would °never scruple to lay claim to
a hundred others which he bad not
got. This - unprejudiced genius had
tried all. sorts of trades in France
Without much success, and had at

board a merchant= vessel. But being
horribly seasick 'on board, he had

ceitinA, and a box of conjuring im
plements-, including an inexhaustible
bottle, out of which -he lost no - time
in dispensing liquor to the natives.
This marvellous proceeding had its
due, effect on the Chinese mind, and
in a very short time, by dint of his
fiddling, conjuring, quacking and
fortune-telling, Monsieur Rigobert
became a popular character in the

The Feeding Value of Cornfod
T,here has always ikon a great dif
ference of opinion as .to the feeding
value of cornfodder after the corn
has been taken from it. While one
will declare that it is , almost worth
less, that his cattle Will eat only the
leaves, another will assert that it is
- . Werth as muchlper ton as the best of
English hay, , and that his cattle will
eat up both
,the stalks and the leaves.
Among a very large number of ex
periments that have been 'made by
thoie who — undeistand how to feed
cattle so asste make them eat it, - -ao
far lase know, every one has 'found,
that cornfodder very much improves
he milk, and where 'careful experi-,
bents have been made it has been
found that it is worth as much where
one or two feeds have been given a
day as, the same weight of good En
glish hay, and that cows keep in
quite as good condition, giving rich
er-milk, and making butter, of a bet
ter color and flavor. Last winter,
to more thoroughly test the value,
and to aseertain_to what extent corn-.
fodder could be fed • out, two cows
were fed entirely on eornfodder and
a daily ration of two quarts of Indian
meal each; not a single pound of hay '
of any kind was given 'the entire
winter, the fodder was cut and most
. of the time wet with hot water, but
not always; the result was the most
gratifying; not only did the cows
improve in condition, but did not
consume any more, if as much as
they would of — good English hay;
sometimes the fodder was weighed,
giving sixteen pounds to a cow.
the quantity of any material requir
ed to keep a cow in 'good condition
depends very much on .i the man who
feeds them, it it but fair to say that
the man who tried ' this experiment
will keep .cows on a much smaller
qutintikp of hay than the most of
men. It is al well-known fact that
one man will keep his cow on twen
ty-five pounds of hay a day in no
better, if so good,conditien as anoth
ertwlllon sixteen pounds. In mak
ing comparisons it is always neces
sary to' take this - fact into considera
tion. there are but few who ever
learn how to feed cattle to the best
advantage. Thoie.wLo fail to make
their cattle eat cornfodder up clean
bave yet something to learn in cattle ,
feeding. E If it be a fact and there ap
pears to be the best of evidence to
prove that it is, that cornfodder is
equal to. English hay, ton for ton,
then the corn crop not only becomes
an important but also a very profit
able one;` for if fifty bushels of °env
and two tons of foddpr equal tOzga-.

more than it will cost. Cornfodder
proves. to be not only a good healthy
food formilch cows, bat it produces
better milk than the - .best of hay.
The difference is so crest that pro
ducers say that their regular custo
mer can tell when .they,ichange from

Growing, Cabbage Seed
Cabbage seed is almost invariably'
procurred from seedmen, and to the
credit of 'the growers of such seed
they are very reliable as a class, and
especially are the Philadelphia seeds
men regarded with confidence in the
matter of sending out the hest.
They take great pains to improve
the quality every, year, and we are
really indebted to them for their et .
forts. What the few seedsmen do in .
that respect, with the disadvantage
of being few in number, the farmers
could better improve by reason of
being more numerous. •
Fhe cabbage has passed the time
of being considered a "collard" and
is now grown true to name and quali
ty every season. If _the - process of
selection was persisted in, for a fewt
years by the farmers as a clasi, in
conjunction with the seedsmen, there
is - a. wide field for improvement.
Cabbage seed is not grown on a sin
gle farm in the hundred, the farmers
relying entirely on dealers. Every
farmer should know just exactly what
he is-doing when he sows cabbage
seed for plants f and this applies not
only to the preparation of, the bed
-but also to the seed. It 'is no mis
take to state that it would puzzle a
great many farmers if they were re
quested to give the 'method of grow
ing , cabbage . seed, especially if the
seed is to be --gird pure , and true to
There are several local methods,
but the preferable way is to select
froth afield of cabbage that has been
grown from seed furnished by a relia
ble dealer and fully tested on the
farm. The heads so chosen are taken
up from the field and carried to a
special location that has been pre
pared for the phrpose. The cabbage
from which the'seed is to be grown
is pulled up with its roots and before
putting in the ground should have
the lower portion of the stalk with
the roots attached, cut entirelyff
leaving to the head only small por
tion of the stalk. This is. put in a
dry location of the soil; stalk down-,
ward, and well covered - hp, leaving a
mound over it to turn away the wa
ter.. Do not bury it too deeply, but
leave about half of the head above
the surface line, trough the whole'
head shoulg be well covered and pro
tected against extreme cold. The
cabbage will remain in such condi
tion until spring., when the earth
forming the mound should be remov=
ed. Often the cabbage will begin to,
grow before being uncovered, if the
spring is early and mild, when, a
cracking or bursting of the mound
may be noticed. As soon as it is uri
covered it begins to bulge out, some
times from the centre, and again
from the sides of the head-. When
this is seen the - head is relieved by,
cutting across the protruding.parts
with a knife, and the shoot will im-.
mediately, make, 'its appearance._
Shoots will grow ,out from' different
parts of the cabbage, but they should
be pulled ofrind not allowed to grow
as such - shoots : yield seed that will
not fill the expectations Of the farmer
producinganterior heads.- Only the
shoot, that grows directly from the .
centie of the head or as near as pos
sible thereto, should be allowed, and
care should I be exercised in keeping
cabbage of different varieties apart.
Quite a large numbertof seeds can be
procured from a head, and they bear
a strong resemblance to those of the
turnip. It is but very little trouble
to grow cabbage seed, as a single
head of cabbage usually provides•the
ordinary farmer with more.than suf
ficient for his wants, and the advan
tage is that by selecting the best cab
bage every year and allowing no side
shoots when growing, much annoy
ahee is ;avoidedfrom imperfect stock
and spurious -weeds. •J.
