HIS - POLICS-; \.
I can't stand it, and, what's 'more, I
won't," said little Mrs. Hinkle, clutching
the bars of- her uncomfortable old cage of a
rocking chair. '
- Mr. Hinkle placidly hung up his. almanac
and went out to sow the early peas. He
could stand almost anything and yet remain
as serene aa'a cabbage head—which, indeed,
his ,wife often said he resembled. • Laviny's
tantrums troubled him about as muck a
,musquito's buzzing would trouble ati ele
•phant; but be thought they were kind of
wearing toiler, and that she "came to" a
little quicker alone.. So be left her swing
ing herself sea-sick in the rocker, and shuf
fled off to the garden with a hoe and a pint
'dipper of peas. At the gate he met Miss
Niddlins. • ,
"And how's your, poor, wife?" said she,
sniffing. She suffered with a--chronic cold
in the head, which gave her an extremely
"Able to be stirring," replied Mr. Hin
kle, shuffling on in his brown leather moc
casins.. Even a cabbage head may be, as it
usually is, ruffled inside; and deep in his
slow-beating heart Mr. Hinkle was annoyed
at the sight of, Miss Niddlins and the em
broidered bed-ticking bag which betokened
a week's visit.
"Laviny:s putehiky enough without be
ing set on," said he r leaning-on his hoe ha
the favorite attitude adopted by scarecrows.
" Yes," I really think she is,," he went on,
weihing - the proposition deliberately.—
"Not that Imind her being , spry-tempered,
and . spitting out at me. It's only .a way the
has,- and,cemes 'of her enjoying Such poor
eitioth::,_:_she.eLeeol down: but that old maid ,
ha'n't any call to rile lierr•uutl-brs-.- litre
kle gave the hoe handle a resentful poke, as
if it personated the spinster aforesaid. Like
many men not gifted in public speaking, he
was much given to talking aloud when
alone. Indoors his wife claimed exclusive
right of speech.
"And here I've stuck, like a dab of put
ty, from • the day I married with Reuben—"
Mrs. Hinkle was saying to Miss Nidillins.—
"I've had to walk on eggs, or his folks
would be in my hair. They've bad their
remarks to make about all my, doings, and
you may depend upon it it grinds."
Mrs. Hinkle must have been ground very
sharp, indeed, judging by her sharp, cutting
" Poor thing!" groaned Miss Niddlins,
using her handkerchief just then because
it would produce the effect of pity.
" See how I was put upon this morning
by his sister Phebe," said .Mrs. Hinkle, mov
ing the end of her nose rapidly back and
forth with her forefinger, as if she was play
ing on a jewsharp. "That woman had the
impudence to twit me of neglecting Reu
ben because I leave him to get his own sup
per sewing -circle nights!"
" Don't tell me so!" sniffed Miss Niddlins.
"Did Mr.' Hinkle complain to her?"
Y." Catch him complaining!" cried Mrs.
Hinkle; "he hasn't got spunk enough.—
Why he's no more grit than a haystack, and
he's as sot. I couldn't make him break with
his"folks if I was to suffer. = Wish Iwas sin
gle, then I wouldn't be nosed 'round by'em.
Now here you are, free to go whenever you
Miss Niddlins sighed an affirmative. It
was her peculiar trial that her relatives nev
er opposed her going. - II
" If you were to separate, I suppose . you;
have got enough to live on," suggested she,
Mrs. Hinkle's rocker jerked itself ihto a
, full stop. She had often said that " Reu
i ben must choose betwixt his folks and her,"
that, she "would take herself or," and the
! like; but to have a third person hint at a
separation startled her.
"Well---yes," said she hesitatingly. "I
have got the property I brought with me
when I was •married; "--I won't deny but
what Reuben has done the fair thing there;
but-then, if he'd been some Then, he might
have doubled it by this time. The long and

turned Miss Niddlins; " he'd begin to, real
ize what a smart wife he'd lost."
" He'd clutter the kitchen with his greasy
harnesses and camp down on the lounge in
his boots—that ' s & what he'd do—the minute
I was off'' snapped Mrs. Hinkle.
" He couldn't manage . without :you, to
save his life,"•declared Miss Niddlins Confi
dently, .``,lle'd go• down on his knees to

There was a Public Baby on the curs the
other day. On starting from the depot I
felt a strange nense, of a missing presence.
wondered at this. Soon all was explained;
the Public Baby` was not on board! But it
came ,at the next station; the little fiend
never misses a train nor pays a cent. This
Public Baby at first criedird howled on
general principles; it bad no as yet discov
ered any special cause for grievance—be
cause of this it cried. Its little bands were
sticky with some"manner of saccharine
stickinels; its little face was sticky with the*
13 ame,•especially its little but' noisy mouthy
It rubbed its little sticky face with 'its little
sticky hands; the general stickiness of its
face was amalgamated with that of its little
hands, and ace versa. When it bad pre
pared this mixture it wanted to rub it over
all who sat near. It clutched at a lady's
bonnet ribbons, and succeeded in transfer
ring a spot of molasses-colored brown to
Pie bright blue of the silk. The lady turn
:ed; she noticed the Public Baby; She looked
as if swished King Herod was alive and
doing a iVievely business in that particular
car. The parents withdrew their allay off
spring from the front., Then it howled with
renewed anguish because it couldn't have
that lady to paw. They gave it more col
ored candy and a little cake. With such
material the little " well-spring' of pleas
ure" worked itself into an uneasy lump of
saccharine and mucilaginous matter. It
studded its countenance with cake crumbs.
Soon the receptacle for candy within that
bat g was full; it cried because it could hold
no hiore. It wanted to go to its father—it
went; then it cried to go back to its mother
. then it howled to go back to its
fatherlagam. He went into the smoking
car. Men have some rights which cannot
be invaded. The Public Baby then de
manded in its expressive' way that it should -
,re-paw the lady's blue bonnet strings.. The
mother tossed it aloft—it cried; she held it
lower—still it cried; -she held it sideways—
it cried sideways; she held it topside down
—topside down it cried; it became red in
the face—people around hoped it might
burst; some moved away. Unfortunately,
the mother discovered Its danger, and the
child was preserved—preserved to howl for
years, until it ceases to be a Public Baby.

The winter travel of the Kamtchadals is
accomplished entirely upon dog sledges, and
in no other pursuit of their lives do they
spend more time, and exhibit their native
skill and ingenuity to better advantage.—
The present Siberian dog . is, nothing more
than nhalf-domesticated Arctic wolf, and re
tains all his wolfish instincts and peculiari
tiPa.- There is_probably no moreliArdy, en ,
during animal in the world. You may com
pel him to sleep out in the snow in a tempe
rature of 70 degrees below zero, drive him
with heavy loads until his feet "crack open
and print the snow with blood, or starve
him until he eats his harness, but his spirit
and his strength seem alike unconquerable.
I have driven a team of nine dogs more than
a hundred miles in a day and a night, , and
have frequently worked them hard for more
'than forty-eight hours, without being able
to give them a particle of food. In general
they feed once a day, their allowance being
a single dried fish, weighing perhaps a pound
and a half or two pounds. This is given to
them at night, so that they begin another
da,y's work with empty stomachs. j
The sledge to which they are harnessed is
about ten_ feet in length and two in width,
made of seasoned birch timber, and com
bines to a surprising degree the two most
desirable qualities, strength and lightness.
It is simply - a skeleton framework fastened
together with lashings of dried sealskin,
and mounted on broad, curved runners.—
No iron whatever is used in its construction,
it does not weigh more than twenty pounds,
and endures the severest shocka of rough
mountain travel.- The number of dogs har
nessed to this sledge 'varies from. seven to
fifteen, according to ,the nature of the coun
try to be traversed and to the.weight of the
load. Under favorable circumstances eleven
dogs' will make from forty to fifty miles a
day with a man and a load of four hundred
pounds. They are 'harnessed to the sledge
in successive couples by a long central thong
of sealskin, to which each individual dog is
attached by a collar and a short trace.—
They, are guided and controlled entirely by
he voice and by a lead-dog who is especial-

ries no whip, but has instead a thick stick,
about four feet in length and twit:, inches in

armed at one end with a long iron spike,
andis used•to check the speed-of the sledge
in descending hills; and to stop the dogs
when they leave the road,,ris they frequently
do, in pursuit of reindeer and foxes. The
spiked end , is'•theu'thrust down in front of•.

from monkish times, that a student or learn

eating and drinking,. This is a grave popu
lar error; the very reverse comes nearer the
truth. Scholars and savants are not always
aesthetic feeders,- but, unless prevented by
sheer poverty, they are usually_ right hearty
feeders—the principle being as true in the
Study as elsewhere that good work requires
good eating. A senior wrangler may not
be able to stow away quite so large a plate
of beef as - a coal-heaver, but lie can dispose
of a portion big enough - to terrify any one
in the habit of dining with Dio Lewis.—
"By their fruits ye shall know them." In
all the literature born of American asceti
cism we see a thinness, a lack of color—pro
duced by a lack of learning—beyond what
the rest of our literature shows, inferior as
even that may be when judged by a Buro-:
pean standard. Nor is the matter mended
when the writer or speaker endeavors to
Supply this want by a' display of sonorous
and incoherent bosh, whichhe and a por- '
Lion of his public have the 'fatuity to take
for poetical sentiment' and oratorical orna
ment.. But still more striking is the vulgar
ity of ourlaseetie literature, from the high
est,in point of reputation and pretension,
to the lowest. A large number of the 41d
world saints used to derive- in former titnea
much of their odor , of sanctity from posi
tive dirt. The holy friar Pi pretty sure also
to be the dirty friar. -In like manner there
is a largely.eireulating ascetic or semi-ascet
ic literature among us, permeated by that
most 'offensive kind of- Philistinism which,
though narrow and ignorant., is, above all
things, essentially and hopelessly vulgar.—

. - , , The Dairying Interest».
—At the recent meeting of the New Tot* •
State Agricultural Society Mr. X' A. WM- ----
arcl read an interesting paper on- the , milk
and daily interests of the' United State&
containing - statisties,of,the production: dr
milk, cheese and butter;and the money val
ue thereof. , Mr. Willard holds that the fan.
tory F,ystern of cheese making in warm wea
ther is grossly defective, and wasteful of - the
hard earnings of the, dairymen._ Cheese
making is the proper 'development of 'a pe
culler_ species of fungi; good milk. and i
proper curing aro necessary to the produc
tion of good cheese. With proper curing
and sufficient storage room the quality and
flavor! . Of the cheese_ is improved. ' With
sufficient storage room in the factories apor
tion of. the stock can he withheld during .
warm weather, and the - dairymen will be, '
able to mintain dectnt prices for what they
do sell. 3 ilk is som times tainted by cows
inhaling bad odors in the pasture, a fact as
certained by experiment.
He said the fine flavor of English cheese
was attributable to the clean milk, which is
attained by clean pastures, stables, drinking
places, and dairy houses. in England bet- ,
ter milk is obtained than with us, aall
thismeans the Englishmen, with qesi
thee Aniericans, are enabled to ilaake a su
perior production of cheese. 14' seve
Mire - peen, countries our factory stem''sy
being adopted. In conclusion, ifir. Will
referred to a branch of dairying but little
known to the dairy public—condensed milk
—the refits on which are enormous. The
proce s consists in taking 78 pir cent. of
water rom pure milk and placing the-bal
ance before the consumer. ' The process
kills those organisms which are often cause
of disease in impure fresh milk. One pound
of condensed milk sells at 29 eents t the cost
of ,which was only 13 cents, includlngsmilk,
sugar, condensing and canning, leaving a
balance of 16 cents. A cow producing 12 .
quarts per day, by this process, will yield a
_profit to the farmer of $1',28 per day, and
to the factory $1 for each cow after paying
the fariner 3 cents per quart for the milk.
The export demand for.condensed milk is
constantly increasing, and in China there is •
an immense demand for this, article. Mr.
W. stated that he had no 'doubt that the
time was near at hand when the great cheese '
and butter interests of the country will ,be
greatly promoted by this branch,,of the bu- '
siness i i and that dairy goods of all descrip
tions will be highly remunerative.
' How to Cook a Parsnip. ,
A badly-cooked parsnip is neither eatable
nor digestible; but cook it properly and it is
a delicacy worthy of a place on an epicure's
table. I shall endeavor to show how to
make the best of this nourishing root, and - .
hope that many readers who have cared lit
tle for parsnips hitherto will, after a fair
trial, appreciate them as they deserve. NO
matter what the size or shape of a parsnip,
it is invariably, good throughout, and very
little, indeed, shbuld be wasted in prepar
ing it for the table. The best are those of
medium size and even outline, with few ? '
brown specks on the bark._ They should J.
come into the cook's hands quite clean, and
to prepare them . thus far it is generally
necessary to scrub them in cold water.
From the moment they are taken is hand .
for cooking until they are served on the ta;
ble there should be no delay of any kihd ;
for the more they lie about after being( %.
scraped, and especially if they soak in wa
ter, the more they lose in flavor and tender- i
ness, 'for the most precious qualities are i
soluble, and are soon soaked out, the fibre
only being left. Cut out the crown without '
waste, remove the extreme tail and any
small side roots, and then scrape off the
brqk and carefully cut out the brown specks
and streaks. It is better to scrape than to
r l re'thent, for the outside is rrejily flavored
M n_highly..nutrifioba. _,lt is scarcely possi
-1 re to cook parsnip whole, and, of course,
there need be no directions given how to
cut them. But it s very important to bear
in mind that they s ould always be cooked
whole if possible, and, when they must be
cut, the less cutting the better. The more
they are cut, the more surely the goodness
"flies away, flies away." Now, we want
for the cooking a snudt, quantity of boiling
water seasoned slightly with salt, in an iron • '
pot sufficiently Marge for the parsnips.
Throw them in, shut them down, and put .
the pot on the' fire. As soon as it boils draw
it to, the side, and there let it simmer for full
three-quarters of an hour, and then try the
parsnips with a fork. If quite tender, pour
the water off, arid shut them down, and
keep them on the bob until they are wanted,
They may stand au hour without harm, if
close shut down; on a, hot plate or hob with
steam enough of their own to keep them
,from burning. If cooked slowly in scarce- ,
ly water enough to cover them, they will be -
as soft as butter, and of the most delicious -
flavor. If cooked in a large quantity of
water, and especially if put on iu cold or ,
even warm water, they will be comparative- -
ly worthless, for the goodness will be soak
ed ont of them, as too often it is-soaked out --,
of pbtatoes and boiled joints of meat.—

• Everlasting. Pence Posts.
clscoVered many pears ego that wood
could be made t. last longer than iron in
the ground, but thought the process so sim
ple and inexpensive that it was not worth
while making any stir about it. I would as
soon have poplar, basswood, or quaking ash
as any other • kinds of timber for fence posts.
I have taken out hspswood posts after hav)
lag been set seven yearl, that werens sound
when taken up as when‘they were first put
in the ground. Time rind weather seemed
to have no effect on there. The poits can
be prepared for less than two centrepiece.
"For the benefit of others, I will give the
recipe: Take boiled linieed oil and stir in
it pulverized charcoal to the consistency of
paint. Put a coat of this' over the timber,
and there is not a Man that will live to see
it rotten."—Cur. lV.s&'rn Rural.
Tree seeds should be either sown or pre
pared for sowing in the fall. Hard shell
seeds require Ihno,to soft©n their coats, or
they will_~lie over a year in the ground. It
used to be popular to mix with boxes of
sand ;Alm, unless there be very few seeds tg
a very largo quantity of sand, the heat givefi
out, through perhaps imperceptible to us, is
sufficient to generate fungus whichwill des
troy the seed. It is much better to soak the
seeds in water, and then dry just enough to
keep from moulding,and keep as cool as poss
ible all winter.—Gardener's Monthly.
Tradeleto Boys and Ciime.
It is a fact no less significant than 'start
ling that of 17,000 criminals in the United
States in MS only three out of every hun
dred had learned a trade. And . yet peoble
wonder why there is so much crane in large
cities, where trades unions absolutely . ex
elude boys from the privilege of becoming',
apprentices. The Philadelphia Star says
there is something so appalling in this terri
ble statementappealitig to the sympathies
—that it would seem impossible that nine
tenths of the boys of the city to-day are in
a fair way to be classed with the 17,000 con
vict's above referred to.
