Tbe mother was wrinkled snd gray,

the oldest bor was fifteen. So laid
the gruff old broker who had the
party in charge and who seemed anx
lonsto dittpoM of his wares. The
broker told us that tbe husband and
father was fn California, aad bad nee
leoted to pay bis oolo given for hie
nnaMaon. and that hia fnmilv Waa now

hoped to bo able to pay Ibe debt with

No Chinaman would dispute the pur

He sneered st that, and said tbat
Koclishoien always talked io that way
when they wanted to buy. While we
were talking a part; of blue robed Chi-
orse aritoerats came up snd began to
inspect the family. Ihey opened the
mouth of the oldest girl, rspped on ber
white teeth to tee it they were sound,
pulled open ber dress, thumped her
rib, laughed at her little feet, told her
to show the whites of ber eyes, ordered
her to sing, sod to show them tbe
trinkets which the fond mother bad
given ber as a parting gift. All Ibo

Time .pressing we pasted on, learlog
tbe parties disputiag about the price
sod dlaeusHiogibe probabilities of their
running awty. -
Wa returned the 'earns day to ss-
eertaio the result of the sale. Only
tbe inothor sod ber boys were left.
The debt was ooly 1300 and 950 of it
still remained unpaid.
I Rave otten been told or tbe reti-
deo.s of China that the parents would
as toon sell their children as a eow or
ajrig. And I bad begun to think
tbat such was the esss upon passing
the group tbe first time. But tbs
seen bad changed. 1 be girls wer
gone, and now a boy mutt go also
Tbs mother sat in tba dirt, with her
arms around tbe youngest, wailing in
s most piteous manner, and, aa Ab
Huog said, cursing tbe men tbat sold
ber b unhand a tii kct to Ameriea for
1300 which coat them but ItO. Tho
broker sat listlessly by, smoking bis
pipe aod twining bis osne. looking as
if it wa tbe smsllest mattter of busi
nee with blm.
Tbs boya were erring, and seemed
very muoa slraid of as, now it was
certain one of them most go. Bat we
passed oo aad left tbara io their mts

was sold to a ehildles mao to be treated
aa a son, to a Portuguese to be carried
to tba West Indies under a nominal
eootrsct, or to a native laodovner to
be hia slavo. But tbat on of tbem

150 there can be ao doubt Tbe girls
were doubtless pnrchaied for th vilest
purposes, unless thejbed tbs rare lusk
to fall into tbe baada of some native la
search of a legitimate wife.' I am told
that tbe price of girla baa gone up
witbia a fsw months, owing, perhaps,
to tbe faet that a less on rubs r of ami

Tbird, have a good cloao floor to feed
upon, and never, on sny account.throw
their food ioto a muddy or Glthy place.
A wet, muddy bed and 6lthy feeding
place render the meat always more or
lots strong sod unwholesome food for
num. Fourth, four bushels of eorn fed
now will produco more flesh than sis
will io December.
The fattening properties of (he dif
ferent grains, and tho canacitv of the
breed to take on fut, to convert grain
into the greatest amount of pork, have
been experimented upon auOiaiently
to form established fac ts
Ws uod thst corn, the best train for
fatteaing, will yield ten to twelve
pounds of pork to th bushel whsn fed

pounds more are gsined. When It is,

bushel ofeoro on to tweott ootind

when fed in th car, much of which

rcKiilurly, snd eaten clean, with easy

to get tbe slrength of the corn. The

this ia of little eonteqtieoee. It may
be expensive to steam food to scald it

Whttbsr it is cheaper sod more nro-
fitable to fatten spring pigs, 1 believo

This makes the beit aod ehcnicst

of rest not only by lUiEoitot sleep at
