HOUSE, FARM AND GARDEN.
Farmer's Families. '
Mucli baa been said and written on
this subject, poets have loved It and al
most every artist lias his oor.y little
farmhouse nestled among the trees, cov
ered with climbing-roses, and surround
ed by the " necessary outbuildings."
Many a time have we forgotten while
gazing at such a picture, or reading one
of these amorous effusions, that we were
born In the country, and that we lived
in a farmhouse and followed its tire
some monotony from morning till night,
varying from laundry to dairy, feeding
the poultry, rising before the lark was
astir to milk the " patient klne," " shod
like the mountaineer," and so on with
but little variation, save on those days
on which there was house cleaning or
some "extra job " to be done.
Then when evening came and we Bat
down, thoroughly wearied, what an un
utterable longing came over us for some
thing more. If (and the tantalizing
picture would present Itself ) there was
a paper to be picked up after this was
over, or some interesting and instructive
volume we were weary, very weary,
and the very sight of a pile of patching
made both fingers and eyes ache we
were disinclined to touch it.
And just here is one of the great
wants of our modern farmhouse. , There
will be found, If the case be investigated,
that in by far the largest portion of them
there is but the one weekly paper, and
in very many none at all. In these
houses the library may easily be counted.
And here men and women in embryo
spend those years that will so much in
fluence their future lives. Let this be
emedied. Let the fathers supply their
ildren with those grand educators,
public press; gather around their
,'des the classic author, the hlsto-
and mingle with them the best
iid some well-assorted novels, and
ugurate a new era in our farm-

Method of Measuring Land.
Iiformed farmer in one of the
f, ricultural journals gives the
simple method of measuring
ectly, which may be of use to
the farmers throughout this
fer counties of the etate :
(e two slats about bIx feet in length,
sharpen one end of each, lay them on
the floor like a pair of open compasses,
bo that the points shall be exactly five
feet six inches apart ; now nail the two
other ends together and a piece across
the middle, so that it will resemble the
letter " A," and the the measure is fin
ished. To measure land, place one
point at the starting place, and the other
also on the ground in a straight line for
destination ; stand alongside of the ma
chine with one hand on top of it; take
one step forward, tip up the point that
is behind, swing it around ( from you )
on the other point and set it in the line
also. A person in this manner can
measure correctly as fast as he can walk.
Three spaces make a rod walk straight
without stopping, count the spaces, di
vide these by three and you have the

How To Catch Hawks.
On the last day of March 1880, one of
these pests killed one of my best hens
and the next day I set a steel trap with
. the dead chicken and in less than twenty
minutes I had Mr. Hawk, by the foot.
On the eleventh of the same month I
caught another hawk that measured
four feet across the wings ; it is as large
as any hen I have, so I caught two of
these pests with one dead chicken and

and applying a handful in a hill, will
keep the striped bugs from cucumbers.
It is not the bugs who recommend the
recipe, but the people who have tried it.
It is said to be more effective than a
Legislative enactment. '
It has become so common to write the
beginning of an elegant, interesting ar
ticle and then run Into some advertise
ment that we avoid all such cheats and
simply call attention to the merits of
Hop Bitters in as plain honest terms as
possible, to induce people to give them
one trial, as no one who knows their
value will ever use anything else.
