OVER A SEW LEA?.''.
And Walter Gray did turn over a new
leaf. On the very next day did two
things, (hereby . astonishing , twq parties,
lie had a new gate mads for the, entnmce
to tlio gsrdcn, and thereby astonished h's
wife; and ho refused to "toss up" for the
als, aud thereby astonisnsd a crowd ot
csrecUut thirsty ones.- ,Fcr,a. month he
pursued this, course, apd by the expira
tion of that time he could fully appreciate
the j blessings that were dawning upon
him. lid discovered that he could afford
everything which the coiafo.t ofbis fam
ily demauded; and in arriving at this re-
suit he had only to cut loose those things
which he really eoal.d not afford.- . It was
a wonder to him WwJic could hare been
so fooluh.1 Whiia,'' at the end of' tba
year, he had paid h:s note, and Bad ninety-two-
dollars left, he felt ' at first as
thcrugh : there' must be 'i?ome ; mistake;
but when his wife went over their honse
hold expenditures with hiar, and shotred
him that all they had ' needed ' had - been
bought and paid for, he saw jast how it
was. ' lie saw that for years he had been
wasting his substance, aud rlepriv'ng' him
self and the loved ones of the comforts
they needed not intentionally, but thro'
the strange mistake that leads thousands
in the same oourse. But he' did so no
more. -'-' "," -. ..
Some times, even now, Welter Gray
says ''Can't Aipord it," snd ho- says
it very emphatically; too. Eut it is not
when his wife or children auk for comfort
and joy, nor yet when the needy poor
ask for help au& charity for he can well
afford that :' but it is when the wild peo
'u'atiorf, or the loose companion1 ask hiai
to engage in some game of hazard which
may TtA himself and fkrniiy of their sub
stance. Then he says -and he'reneafi it

.Tnn. n h. n,.nl nT.il 1 .
always to be found useful articles applies- "
ble to the dailj necessities of farmers.
In a late cunibtr is the following, which"
every hog raiser, who knows anything
about the business must confess ts be
dbrrect:''-' " '"' ' ,M " "
.MPigs hare the reputation of a reel lit.
I ror Uirt; aud, cexumly, tfio way m
I 1" tIieJ kP on some .'arms wou!4
show th tnefr owners are determined to
give ttem pla opportunity for carryisg :
i ou thi ,iking- " No notion can, however,' '
be mora erroneous than this, as. none is
certainly - sa iroduotive of 'lose to the
keeper.- Let' any one cot convinced of
this try the two modes of pig keeping :
the dirty and the clean the food in both
cases, and other peafcrad treatment awing . -the
same, and the result will show him,
which o the two k the best. ; A great
deal depends upon the mode in which thej
are housed., Mr. Raines, of Mills, adopts
the fallowing : A large out-house is en
closed at the aides so as to be warm and
dry. The floor is paved and sprinkled .
with burnt clay and ashes obtained by
burning Weeds. In this the pigs are fed ;
while for resting and sleeping they have
a cosamoa eompartrcent railed off at ths
other end, amply provided with clean
straw. In another case box feeding has
been applied, the pigs being kept in a pit- .
icto which the manure from the ox and
the sow stables aad the horse stables is
put.' The pigs tread this down and kcem
to enjoy themselves amazingly . In one
case, where this-plan has been adopted,
the farmer states that his pigs have 'given
him a profit by their meat, aad left the
dung as good as guana for nothing.'" "
1 ' GATE3-
; Good gates are a great convoaience.
They save, no small amount of trouble, and
whan properly constructed, will ..epdura
for years. IlFery passage way, pathlane,
abd rcai, should be secured by a good
substantial gato, bung on durable pests,
and attached thereto by firm, iron hinges,
capable of sustaining the weight without
tie dacger cf breaking, even when rough
ly weed.-. True, it costs more to construct ;
and hacg good gate properly, than it
docs to construct a pair cf bars, but when
it is once accomplished, you have a de-
fenae which will not require replacing or :
repairing for years, and which will nub- .
ject you to but little troubles or loss of
lima in.opsning or shutting au item of
no small consequence when ono has to
paa some dozen or twenty times a day,
If you desire .that these should yiold
liberally to the pail yoa mvut feed thenx
with something better suited to the secre.
tion of rich milk than dry provender.
Roots or moal slops of some kind should
be given them twice a day, at least, say
morning aad evening. They should have
