And in the sun the Mystals
Were sperkling white and elem.

What do you in the snow there.

"lElcangel-like and mild.
She called them—oh. the wonder I'
Theyknew the word. she said.
And came until they covered .
Her shoulders and her head. -
Upon . her month they ►iesed her,
As if it were a rose,
And in her 'golden ringlets
TanglAi theirlittle toes.
Her fingers clasped and held them,
Hat never gave them pain,
And when she loosed them, gladly,
They flew to her again.
We called her in, the darling,
And closed the cottage, door;
The snowbirds,, pleased with petting.
Came atter her for more.
So tenderly they loved her,
Those brig': and blithesome things,
That they can make us jettiona
With chirps and whirling wings.
And carefully we watch her,
With wonder. fear and doubt,
Leat from her snowy shoulders .
Wings•white and far should sprout!

Last year I watched while the waves of gold
• Bose gently and fell with twilight's tide,
A barque sailed off from life's gateways cold,
Bearing the one I have loved from my side.
And I watched for the snowy sails-once more
I'o collie back again o'er those azure seas,
The precious freight they had ta'eq to restore
And quiet my longings, my sad heart ease.
. But they never came back again, _
No, never came back again. -
I watched through; the winter icy and chill,
And my heart-seemed as cold as-the clouds
in the gloom;
Through the light of the spring 1 waited still,
With the buds all glowing with beauty's
bloom;
And still I watched through the fsvered heats
Till all of the':roses of summer were put;
"On the shore'Of the future," my heart re
peals, •
• "I shall find the immortals when life is
past." •
But they'll never come back again, g
No, never conic) back again.

She is dangerowly beautiful just now,

POULTRY NOTES. —lt is generally con
ceded by the . majority of poultry breed
ers that a meat diet is essential during
cold weather, when worms, bugs and
insects are not to be found by the birds.
Bnt though considered necessary to
atone for the lost insect food, it should
be used sparingly and not feed too of
ten to young fowls. _
In - winter and early spring, to- keep
up egg production, the fowls must have
something to wont on. The hest way
to supply them, if there is not enongh
of waste meat soaps from the breeder's
table to meet theveguired demand, is to
get serapsfrom the butcher or slaughter
house. The, waste meat, offal and the
bloody pieces which are unsalable, can
be bought for a cent or two a pound.

son kept 14M a day or „two- and 'then

peared to be under the impression that
his father having spent moat of his mon

care for, him. The affectionate', son.
finding that Myers would not assume
charge of his father, took him as far as
Lucius Curtis' and threw the old man,
in a dying condition, into the road and
went on. Mr. Curti" tool4im into the

death took place the poor authorities

PUTT DAYS Our OF SIGHT OF LAND.
Only think—fifty days since we were
shot out from the sight of land except
a short piece of the broken levee in
front of our cabin. All we can, _see ie
water and driftwood. Large' breaks
have been made in :the levee here,
through which•the water is beiiringlogs
and all manner of drift that is covering
our farms. The distressed condition of
stock in many instances is, too painful
to relate. Hogs have taken refuge on
floating logs, which they have walked
and gnawed; or a week. Cattle are
starving in herds on little knolls, which
they have tramped into quagmires in
which they,sink up, to theit Bides. If
you go in reach of them in your dug
out, they will endeavor to eat your
clothes off you. A- few have reached
he levee at this place, anti lam feeding
them along with mine twice a day out
of my scant crib and small rick of hay.
They will not last much longer, bat I
esonot bear to have an animal to starve
to death' st my door while I ,have, any
thing to 'save its life. I have not en•
joyed a meal in a month, owing to the
fluttering that I know is around ine.--

RAFFLIXO.OFF A Pmq.SYLVANIA EARN.
+We have heard of the grand rattle for
the 'foine fatvpig,' and the '4lpuble
barrelled gun,' but we have not 'seen
the dice thrown for a big faim. Such
a raffle, however, an exchange says,
took place in this State ,a short time
ago. A Pennsylvania farmer, living
near a railroad station, wanted to sell
his farm and adopted a novel method.
He sold 188 tickets at $5O each, making
a total of $9,400. The farm was cutup
into 188 lots, varying in value and size.
the larest and most valuable being the
farm b iildings, with twenty-three acrea
of land; worth about $3,000. At a stated
time the ticket-holders assembled at the
farm. The tickets were numbered and
corresponded with the number of lots,
hence there were , no blanks. Every
holder drew a lot. The wife of the
proprietor of a hotel drew the lot of
twenty-three acres with,the farm build
ings. One gentleman was the lucky
Winner of a corner lot suitable for a
store. The gathering - was an
.raccasion
that will long be remembered in the
place whet() it manned.
It because a woman is exactly
afraid of a cow that she runs away and
screams, but it is because gored dresses
are not fashionable.

as to the crops for this purpose. *e

reply: - -
Winter rye sowed the previous an-

crop. Clover, started the previous
year, is also excellent. Orchard grass,
when established, is one of the best
crops for soiling. After these corn and
corn fodder crops, :the smallest and
earliest sorts to: be sown first. Amber
cane is excellent for a late fall crop.

about, two bushels or more per acre, and

rays: -. !Like the rand of the sea, the
stars of heaven have ever been used as
effective symbols of number, and the
improvements in our methods of obser
vation have added force to our original
observations. We now know that oar
earth is but-a fraction of one out of at
least 75 000 . 000 worlds. but this is not
in additional to this luminous heavenly
bodies, we can not doubt that; there are
countless others, invisible to us from
their great distance, smaller. size, or
feebler light; indeed, we know that there
are many dark bodies which now emit no
light or comparatively little. Thus as
he case pi Procyon. the existence of an
invisible body is proved by the move
ment of the visible star. Again I ' may
refer to a curious phenomena presented
by Algol, a bright star in the head of
'Medusa. This star shines without change
for two 'days and thirteen hours; then
in three hours and a half, dwindles from
a star of the second to one of the fourth
magnitude; and then, it another three
and a half hours reassumes its' orignal
brilliancy These changes seem,certain
' iy to indicate the presence of adoptive
body which intercepts at regular inter
vals part of the light emitted by Algol. •
