'Nonsense,' Raid Mildred: 'You'll

'Were there many people about ?'
asked mamma. •
'Yes,' I sighed.
Papa clinched the decision, 'The only
way you can recover it will be by bdver
tiaing the full }aloe of the ring as
ward. • I'll itusgrt an advertisement in
to-morrow's issue.'
So the advertisement appeared in due
time and form:

small ruby in s old-fashioned setting.
The finder will be rewarded with full

Qf course I watched • from the win
dows, and listened .for the door-bell
with rapt attention all the day following,
and part of the next. My vigilance
was rewarded the'next day, by the ap
pearance of one individual. Now there
was a remarkably low tete-a-tete in the
reception-room,' with a remarkably
feeble set of springs in possession. We
kept it in a corner-sad • did not banish
it entirely, because really it was a COM
fort to such of us' fetninines as did not
chance to be very 'ample or- lengthy.
But - I will notdeny that.we petite femi
nines were aware certain individuals were
victimized for our reference. An awk
ward person invariably finds.his way to
a remote corner—and awkward persons
showed to least advantage on that sofa.

structure was lost to view. - -
This afternoon, then,, -after quickly
observing that no prominent occupiable
seat presented the expected human
presence; I was not' unprepared to find
my visitor entrapped, and making fran
tic struggles to emerge as I advanced.
The -first impression I received, was
what a remarkable length of limb the
person presented below the knee; for I
bad accustomed myself to measure the
height of the individual by.this snare,
and either that person was remarkably
short above the knees, or had dropped
suddenly to sleep. My first impression
was correct.- The person cfma remark-,

He allowed me a ring 'with a large

the ring, cleared her throat, and out

He looked at her, took up his bat and
advanced' to the • door, propelling his
heavy shoulders as if they were distinct
from his body.
'Hell enter the house. this week with
another villain, and steal the silver,' I
said to alumna, when the door hid
closed on him. 'I saw thief stamped
all over his mustache; and where his

cattle could no longer graze, *ere just
what the sheep-preferred. Every, hole

costly foreign manufactured' articles'

The little girls in a familywere taught
to knit as soon as they were able to

of the supply of stockings for the family
was quite Inconsiderable—in fact; it

Now, the keeping of , sheep is exten

sheep-husbandry„ better and better

it be „introduced. 'Our - western and
northwestern farmers, where this branch
is rapidly increasing beyond other sec

many , respects the flock of sheep is' , the.
best helper, not only 'in filling the
purse, but in keeping up the .conditiou
of the land, without really any actual

The pmduction of eggs is, a thing ,
desired by - every ; poultryma n, and is
one of the most profitable branches of
the poultry bushiesi: Ordinarily every
hen will lay h certain amount of eggs in
the year, but with proper food and

great drain on the hen. Darinf laying

of_ highly concentrated food is secreted

is the average amount consumed daily,
which shows almost an equal amount
needed for egg production and toy sup

and few persans, keeping poultry, whO

and desirous of gaining Some things by

A desirable food for lasing bens must
consist 'of grain in variety, wheat, grass

wheat and buckwheat being best. But
to keep up flesh, muscles and heat, oats,
barley and corn are necessary to keep
them thrifty at all times. Corn should
be used sparingly, particularly in sum

blood and tisanes, but with other grain
in cold Weaiber-it is desirable and cheap,
and fowli i i like it much better than other
grain: ;Vegetables. 'and calcateoug
