When Mary sits u-kuitting
Beside the cozy lire.
Her bending '»«> so happy
With motherhood's desire,
It makes the room seem holy,
A consecrated place,
With God's smile in tlie firelight
That flickers on her lace.
The clicking of the needles,
The crumble of the coals,
Blake such a quiet music
For our two quiet souls!
Aud when the little mother
Spreads out the garments small,
The look, the touch she gives it
Like saintly blessings fall.
Wo sit until the twilight
Her snowy weaving blurs,
Aud in the creaking shutter
A little night-wind stirs.
Then Mary's face sinks lower
Unto the little gown.
Until she seems to kiss it
Befoie she lays it down.

They used to make fun of him at
the office.- He was a queer old fellow,
with a solemn face and what we thought
ridiculously polite ways. He would
take off his liat when he came in and

And some of the boys would nod
and some wouldn't do anything; but
I never could help standing up aud
bowing, perhaps because I knew that
my mother would have said I ought
to do it.
And, you see, it was gentlemanly of
him, I said; aiul if he was a little
creature, with a queer little wig, why,
he looked something like a gentleman,
too. I said so once to Merrivale, next

Old Dumps. "When that lady asked

belief that you were a gentleman, Mr.

"Thank lienven for jt, then, my
young friend," said Dumps, as lie sat
After that Merrivale was never
■even half way civil to Dumps,aud the
boys followed Merrivale's lead. But
I liked the old fellow. When we met
iu the street I'd take off my hat and

me to say. And I wrote of bini to

I had written to my mother that I

You'd have to understand our par

They urged me to confess. I was
innocent, and I said so. Then they
told me they did not wish to be hard
on me. I was young. The city was
a bud place for boys. They would be
merciful and only dismiss me without
recommendation. All I could say had
no effect. They proved me gnilty be

at last I staggered out into the office.

his little snuff colored overcoat and
held out his hand.
"Mr. Forrester," he said, "I've

heart from breaking under this dis

"Don't tell her yet," said he.
"Wait. Others shall think of you as
I do soon."
Then be went on in silence. He
took me to his own room, where he
kept bachelor's hall. He made tea
for me and served me with sliced
potted beef and thin bread and butter.
And it was not until we had done
tea that he said to me, very apologet

"Mr. Forrester, excuse me, but I
am not named Dumps. That is the
name by which the young men at the
store consider it witty to call me. I
confess I could not see the wit, but it

I was so much ashnined of having
used the nickname,innocently as I did

triumph, and took both my hands and
shook them hard, and said:

PENMAN'S WONDERFUL FEAT.
An Australian Addii-sne* Knvelupe* With
Both Hands at Same Time.
Wrapper writing is, it would seem,
a popular way of earning a livelihood
with the iumates of Kowtou house,
London, u six-penny hotel. Here is
ail amusiug story of the perfection to
which it may be brought by practice
and a strong will.
"There is a tradition lingering
among the elder brethren of the wrap
per writing profession to the effect
that once upon a time when the work
was better paid than now, a young
man from Australia turned up and
ventured as a last resource into their
sphere of labor. He spent his all and
found himself stranded until funds
should arrive from the antipodes. So
011 the suggestion of an acquaintance,
he applied for a job at the world-famed
firm of Hchmidt & Co. On being duly
installed aud supplied with 500 en
velopes and some pages from a direc
tory he looked around aud asked for a
"'But you have one already,' said
the youug man iu authority.
" I want two,' said the Australian,
and an obliging fellow scribe supplied
his need. The scene which thereupon
ensued baffles description, for the col
onial. separating the pile of envelopes
into two equal lots, began copying the
addresses by writing simultaneously
with both hands. So runs the legend,
at least, and, furthermore it is averred
that his rapidity was such as to put
the 'sloggers* to shame. Fifty pens
dropped from the nerveless grasp of
those who but a minute before had
been writing against time and as if
for dear life. A hundred eyes were
fixed iu astonishment ou the uukuowu
one. Presently the young overseer
who superintended the labors of many
old enough to be his grandfather rose
and timidly said he would consult'the
governor.' The latter arrived, and
the situation being explained, the
Australian was turned into a loose box
all by himself and fed with another
thousand or so of envelopes. At this
rate he earned enough in two or three
weeks to enable him to last out com
fortably till his remittances arrived,
then he went home and Schmidt's
knew him no more. We asked the
old gentleman who told us this yarn
to fill his pipe and have another cup
of tea, for we thought he deserved

claiming, "They won't buy it,mother!'"

that the girl's head was closely shorn,

How to Cultivate Artichoke*.
Answering the inquirer who asks
how to plant and cultivate artichokes,
Farm, Field and Fireside gives au ex
tract from a letter from a Missouri
reader. He says:"l plant them in
drills eighteen to twenty inches apart
one way aud two feet and six inches
the other, and cultivate the same as
potatoes. When the hogs root them
out through the fall and winter, the
ground should be plowed and har
rowed in the spriug and left alone, as
there will be enough remain in the
ground for seed. Should they be too
thick, take a one-horse plow and plow
up strips, leaving rows from twelve
to sixteen inches wide."
! In pruning trees the branches re
moved should be sawedjoff close to the
main trunk or limb on which they
grew. If a long stub is left the
wound will not heal over, but remain
open subject to the attack of disease
germs, which, when they have once
gained entrance, are sure sooner or
later to produce "black heart," which
may extend through the whole tree.
In cutting back small branches or
"leading-in" the cut should be made
just above a good strong bud so that
uo stub is left to die back and invite
All large wounds should be painted
over to prevent "checking" and to
keep out germs while the healing pro
cess is going 011. When smaller
branches have been removed or cut
back, it is well to spray the whole
tree with Bordeaux mixture, which
not only prevents germs from enter
ing the wounds, but also checks their
growth on other parts of the tree. —

The saw was first used in dehorn
ing and I always had an aversion to its
use, but when the knife came I at
once had my herd dehorned.
Theu I commeuced the use of chem
icals 011 my calves to prevent horn
growth, aud for years have had 110
horns except in cattle we have bought
or where we made a partial failure in
stopping their growth.
With neither knife nor the use of
chemicals can there be any charge of
cruelty or causing suffering any more
than clipping a lamb or pig's tail,
which everybody believes is right.
I have never had any special trouble
with horned cattle, but the dehorned
ones are so much more peaceable that,
especially in a new country where ac
commodations for stock are so lim
ited and so much more crowding
necessary, thnt I very much prefer the
hornless ones, they housing together
under the shed or drinking at the
trough as closely as hogs.
I would strongly advise that no
horns be allowed to grow.—J. M.
Infectious Difteaiies Among Poultry.
Drs.Smith and Moore of the bureau
of animal industry, Washington, 1).
C., have made important investiga
tions on above subject. They find
that "black head" iu turkeys, diph
theria, cholera and roup in fowls are
contagious. They also believe that
so-called roup, influenza and some
times cholera are different stages of
the one disease—diphtheria. How
ever this may be, it is stated that
diphtheria is infectious, and it may be
transmitted to children. Therefore,
the great importance of separating all
sick fowls and confining them to some
outbuilding, keeping the children
away. Doctoring sick fowls is very
unprofitable business, and there is
seldom any reason why the fowls
should be sick, provided you have
done your part. Your part is to keep
the roost clean and free from lice.
Give clean water daily. Fill up all
low places where water is apt to col
lect and clear away all rubbish—burn
ing it is the proper thing. Furnish
good sharp grit for the fowls, and
don't get the poultry so fat that the
organs will be so clogged that they
cannot perforin their normal duties!
Make the roost tight and dry and pro
vide convenient dusting places. Make
the fowls exercise by scratching in
litter. In fact, this last point and
clean, fresh water will go a long way
toward keeping the fowls in good
health. There is no kind of stock on
the farm that is more healthy than
fowls when they have proper care.
Too many people try to crowd 100
fowls into a small house. Thhi not
only lessons the number of eggs, but
is apt to breed disease as well. The
fowls in the centre of a crowded
perch will get too warm, aud there
fore colds will follow. A hoAsa twenty
by thirty feet ia not a bit too large for
100 fowls. The proper way is to di
vide the fowls up into smaller flocks
of say twelve to twenty fowls each,and
separate them during cold weather at
Pegging Down Plants.
An admirable way, according to
Vick's Magazine, to grow most any of
the hybrid perpetual roses is by peg
ging them down in the garden. Plants
grown in this way furnish many more
flowers than when raised in the regu
lar way. The young shoots of each
season's growth are pegged down in
the fall by the use of small sticks
placed often enongh to keep the
branches fastened solid. In laying
the branches down, leave none nearer
than eight or ten inches; after a bush
lias been pegged down for several
years the spa';e will become crowded,
and then the old wood cau be cut
away to give room for the new branch
es. The new shoots should never
be pegged down when in a growing
condition, but when the woocl has
ripened off and become dormant in
the fall is the proper time to do the
Should it happen, as it sometimes
does, that some of the old wood must
be left, because too few new shoots
h&Ti grown to take its place, the old
wood should be pushed back to two
eyes or buds on each branch; the
shoots will then start out in the
spring,making new wood for blossom
The reason for this pegging down
process is this: The rose bush lias a
latent bud at every joint of the plant,
which is only waiting for a good chance
to grow and produce blossoms; planted
in the ordinary way only those at the
top of the bush have much of a chance
to develop, but when laid down every
one of the latent buds w'ill stand an
equal chance with every other in the
distribution of the sap, moisture and
sunshine and few of them will fail to
grow and bloom. A bed of roses
■grown in this way presents a grand
appearance, as the surface of the soil
is nearly hidden by the foliage, above
which the lovely roses are growing
thickly. These bushes need enriching
often, as they are being forced so
hard, aud a good dressing of well
rotted stable manure is almost a
necesity every fall. Some of the
shoots that have become covered with
earth will root,especially if the branch
becomes partially broken or hurt in
layering. Nature, in her effort to heal
the place, will callous it over aud then
roots are quite likely to form.
Many colonies will l)e reduced
down very weak from coming through
the winter. It is very desirable to
save every colony that is in a healthy
condition and that have good qtieeus.
We can very materially help out such
colonies by giving tliein some atten
tion nt the right time ami in the light
manner. A weak colony will always
do better in a small space, and this
can be arranged by fitting a board
down in the Live, one on each side of
just the number of combs the bees can
occupy, thus contracting the space,
with these division boards.
Weak colonies may thus be tucked
up in small quarters, and surrounded
thoroughly with warm protection so as
to confine as muoh heat as possible,
and in this shape, with good food at
theii; disposal, it is surprising to see
how rapidly they will build up and
need more territory to accommodate
their increase of business.
Strong colonies may be drawn up to
strengthen weak ones, and this is very
frequently done at almost all seasons
of the year. It is done bv taking a
frame of brood bees, or brood without
bees, from a strong colony and giving
it to a weak one. It has been found,
however, that to do this iu early
spring proves more of a detriment
generally than to allow the strong
ones to keep what they have. In
building up in epriug a strong colouy
will rear mot e brood alone than both
colonies if the brood i»divided,theoue
being a weak colony.
It is only by good management that
we can get weak colonies built up
strong by the time the honey season
is on, for if they are not strong at
this time, it will be at the expense of
the honey crop that they will reach
their fullest capacity.
A good, fertile queen is capable of
producing enough bees in a very short
period to make an immense colony of
bees, but she is altogether governed
in this respect by the number of bees
in the hive, and she lays only the
number of eggs that the bees are
capable of taking criYe of. She occu
pies just the amount of brood combs
that the bees cover well, uud in this
she does not venture too close to the
outside line, and as the number of
bees increase and more space on the
combs is occupied, she extends her
territory in laying eggs.
A queen bee is capable of laying
3000 eggs iu a single day uuder the
most favorable circumstances, so that
if 35,000 bees are a good colony she
could produce it in twelve or fifteen
days, if it were not the case that she
is governed by being thus limited.—

How Fast Do You Write?
Seeking for information, certain
questions were asked of an expert
whose profit lies, as a manufacturer,
in producing one of the most popular
self-feeding pens on the market. This
authority said that "a dip of ink ought
to write 100 words. That in an hour
about thirty drops of ink were used,
aud that in 60 minutes the pen trav
eled some eighth of a mile. It all de
pended ou the idiosyncrasy of the
In order to test this a number of
"habitual and hardened" scribes
were asked to take one dip only
of ink and they were to work oil
their copy iu their usual elegant
or slovenly manner. As far as
averages went, the result was dis
heartening. One man wrote 144 words
with the one dip and another 14, and
the characters of the 144-word man
were much more legible than those of
the 14-word man. There was a lady—
a graceful contributor to journalism—
and in her Italiau hand slie wrote eight
words to the dip, and the faster she
produced copy the less words she
wrote to the single dip.
It is the measurement of the writing
—one-eighth of a mile to the hour—
which is curious, aud to think it pos
sible that there ftiuy be industrious
scribes who write every day of their
lives more than a nule of copy. We
wheel faster, wo cover a mile in a trot
ting sulky more speedily, or we play a
finer game of billiards now than ever,
because the machines, or the track or
the table aud the bulls are better con
structed. With improved pens, ink,
inkstands aud paper, do we -write any
more speedily than in ye olden time?
The probability is thnt we are faster in
our writing, the mechanical impedi
ments having been diminished; yet the
penman, even with the typewriter,
never kept pace with the rapidity of
his thoughts.—New York Times.
