“If Brudder Shindig Watkins am in
de hall to-night he will please step dis
way,” said Brother Gardner, as every¬
body except Bed Rock Taylor drew in
his feet and ceased coughing.
Brother Watkins had jammed himself
into the northwest corner and was rub¬
bing down a bunion with a fragment of
grindstone, but he slipped ou his shoes
and made his way to the President's
desk with a look of keen expectancy on
“Erudder Watkins,” continued the
President, “abont a y’ar ago I Lad a few

A Woman’s Will.
A woman's will lately before a Phila¬
delphia court illustrates the mmtakos
made by testators who push philanthrop¬
ic hobbies too far. By this will the
daughter of the testatrix was to receive
the income of oertain real estate till the
age of 30, and then to have the princi¬
pal, unless she had a husband who used
tobacco and intoxicating drinks. In the
latter event the property was devised to
a Presbyterian Home Missionary Society
to support an indigent preaoher, who
was not to indulge in or teach such prac¬
tices. “A mortgage and notes of $990
were also left to the most trustworthy
committee to be found in the city for the
suppression of iutomperauoo and to¬
bacco.” To the wife of her nephew
the testatrix bequeathed liei “dear little
dog Frisky, with 8100 to care for him
during his life, and at his death to bury
him in Aunt Bally’s lot in Mount Moriah
Oc-metery.” By the deoisiou of tho
Oourt the little dog fared bettor than
the cause of temperance, the bequests
relative to rum and tobacco being held
void for vagueness. Yet the testatrix
had directed her executors to be careful
to see that none of her property should
be iu any way used to encourage the use
of rum and tobacoo through which she
had reached her orowuing sorrow.
The Colured Man in Polities.
Mr. George T. Downing appears in
the New York Freeman, the organ in
New York of the colored people, in a
lengthy letter addressed to Messrs. Dors
heimer, David Dudley Field, Algernon 3.
Sullivan and others, iu which he desires
the attention of the democratic party to
the position of t he colored man in politics.
Mr. Downing states that in his judg¬
ment the colored vote may be divided,
and a goodly portion of it won for the
democratic party, and he indicates as
one method of accomplishing this ’polit¬
ical end that a few competent colored
persons might properly be “appointed to
some prominent positions of honor and
trust in the North.” Mr. Downing is of
the opinion that “ it would have a molli¬
fying influence upon the whites of the
South tending toward a fuller acceptance
of the results of the war. It would ele¬
vate, attach and feed patriotism in the [
colored man.” The writer concludes as 1
follows:—“Gentlemen, believing that the j
incoming administration may relieve the !
country from an embarrassing and ex- j
citing question and leave the colored I
iteople more free to consider material
i 1 like questions of public policy, may |
1 beg of you to give yonr enlightened 1
mfinenoe in that direction ?”
Keeping Winter Vegetables.
It is too late to do some things for onr
winter supply of vegetables, yet as the
proper preparation began in the spring
we may give some hints of value.
Onions must be well ripened, secured
without much frost, and stored in a dry,
oool place; shallow boxes, like old
orango boxes do w ell in a cool cellar.
Squashes, well ripened, gathered be*
fore severe frost and stored in a chamber
near some fire, so as to be kept warm
and dry, will keep till midwinter or
Beets, late sown, so as not to get too
large, and pulled before much frost, to
check growth, and before the warm au¬
tumnal rains have started the new
growth, indicated by numerous little
rootlets—if topped not too closely and
stored in a cool cellar in barrels, with a
few potatoes on top to prevent shrivel¬
ling, wid keep lit for use all winter.
Carrots need not be harvested quite
as early, and will keep in the same way.
Parsnips ntay be left in the ground all
winter, to be dug as soon as the ground
thaws, but this gives but a short season
of use. Dig a part before the ground
freezes and store in barrels. They are
not injured by shrivelling, and by Jan¬
uary will be fit for nse. The quality
improves in the cellar as much as in the
ground, and next to the potato it is the
most generally appreved winter vegeta¬
ble; plain boiled, mashed or fried, it is
always toothsome and healthful.
Common field turnips must be pulled
before much frost, topped closely, and
stored in barrels as beets. Though im¬
proved for immediate nso by frost their
keeping qualities are injured and they
speedily become soft and “pithy.” The
rock turnip, white French, and yellow
sweet, turnip, all of the rutabaga family,
will bear quite hard freezing without
Cabbages for winter nse should be
pnlled before the heads are touched by
liaral frost and planted in earth in a
damp cellar. For spring use bury heads
down in a trench in a dry, sheltered
place, where thore is good drainage and
the snow gives protection.
Celery is more difficult to preserve.
Prtoked upright in barrels or boxes with
fresh earth or sand, sometimes it keeps
well. Remove' any decaying outer
stalks and trim off a part of the leaves.
If loo wet aiul warm it- will rot, if too
dry it will wilt. Tacked upright in
trenches, covered with earth, sheltered
with leaves and hoards to keep out wet,
it sometimes winters well, and the green
plants oome out beautifully blanched.
Gardeners, of course, have special
facilities lor keeping their vegetables—
as pits and root cellars—but these jn.
strnctions are for the common farmer or
villager who cultivates a garden and de¬
sires to benefit by it the whole year.
Potatoes, as well as the above named,
keep best in the dark, in a temperature
just above freezing, in a damp cellar.

When roasting a chicken or small fowl
(here is danger of the legs browning or
becoming too hard to be eaten. To
avoid this take strips of cloth, dip them
into a little molted lard, or even just rub
them over with lard, and wind them
uronnd the legs. Remove them in time
to allow the chicken to brown delicately.

How a Prize Ham was Cured.
J. R. Woods, of Albemarle county,
Va., who received the first premium for
a Virginia ham at the State agricultural
fair, describes his process of curing as
follows: “I cut out my hogs when the
animal heat is out, and to 1,000 pounds
I apply about one bushel and a peck of
salt. I put on the flesh side of my hams
between a tea and a tablespoonful of
saltpetre, before applying salt; if large,
I take them up and resalt where needed,
doing this sooner or later, depending on
the weather, whether mild or cold. I
hang up my hams in four or five weeks,
before which I apply as mneh fine
ground black pepper as can be made to
adhere to the flesh; do not nse any
sugar or molasses. Light should be ex¬
cluded from the house, especially during
the fly season. Smoking should be done
in damp weather, and a part of the time
the wood should burn in a blaze to dry
the meat somewhat, being particular in
not having the fire too warm. If the
meat in the fly season is given out after
dark and before light in the morning,
the pepper will be ample protection
against the fly; but if the house is
0 |>ened during the day, it may be neces¬
sary to use paper bags. No one can
have first-class hams without having the
right sort of hogs. The common biack
iiog furnishes excellent hams, but the
Berkshire, or Berkshire crossed with the
black hog. makes as good as lever saw.’’

Seven men sat down to dinner recent¬
ly in Chenango county, New York State.
They were between the ages of twenty
and thirty-five years, and not one of tha
seven had ever used tobacco in any form,
had never tasted liquor of any kind, and
had never gone to a theatre or played a
game of euchre.
It is ecareely three-quarters of a cen¬

From a single grain of wheat planted
in 1881, says the Grass Valley (Cal.)
Record, grew twenty-two stalks, each
bearing a full head. These yielded 860
grains, 760 of which were planted the
next year, producing one-fifth of a
bushel of splendid wheat. This was
planted last spring, yielding seventeen
bushels, making 1,020 pounds of wheat
from one grain in three years.
Jcst now there seems to be a fancy
among fashionable people to nse owls—
stuffed owls—as ornaments to set on the
tops of bookcases or other suitable
places. Common owls stuffed sell at $3

dealer in Boston says: “I have been
cleaned out of owls entirely, the demand
has been so large of late, and I have sev¬

Travelers out on the red hills, says a
California paper, have often shuddered
at the sight of horned toads, which are
as numerous as blackbirds. The ugly
creatures are as much dreaded as rattle¬

he made a shipment of two thousand of
the toads to San Francisco, from which
place they will be sent to China. The
toads are converted into various kinds ol
medicines, which sell very high. For
the cure of chills ami fever they are said
to be the finest things known. A toad

Forty-five years ago the Britannia
was considered a remarkable ship. She
was 207 feet long and her tonnage 1,155.
The new Cunarder, the Etruria, is 520
feet long and her tonnage nearly 8,000.
The Britannia had engines of 850 horse¬
power ; the horse power ot ilie Etruria
is 14,000. Tho Britaunia carried 220
tons of cargo and 120 passengers; the
Etruria 5,000 tons of cargo and 1,500
passengers. The Britannia carried 500
tons of coal and her speed was 8| knots
per hour. Five years ago the Arizona
made the passage in seven days and
seven hours. The builder of the Etruria
says she will do it in one day less, and
in another five years it will be done in
The Meanest Man Yet.
He got on the front platform of a
Woodward avenue car yesterday morn
ing and had a brief conversation with
the driver before entering. When he
sat down the subject of conversation
had already been opened. It was about
the state of the thermometer.
“I looked at mine as Heft the house,”
remarked a shivering passenger, “and
it marked 12 degrees below.”
“What! only twelve below?” ex¬
claimed another. “Must he something
wrong there. Mine showed fifteen and
was going down at that.”
“Your’s must have been in a wain,
place,” said a third passenger. “1 have
a very reliable thermometer, and it
showed a little over sixteen degrees
below as I took the car.”
Two or three others had their say,
and when the cold had been brought
down to twenty below the moan man
rose up and said;
“Gentlemen, please wait a moment.”
He opened the front door and the
thermometer he hung u-p was handed in
to him. He took it aud passed it from
man to man, that all might see. It
registered exactly 6even below. Not a
word was 6aid for a long time, but the
silence was at last broken by the shiver

Ireland’s Improved Condition.
HER FEOrLE NOT LIKELY TO BE AGAIN
COMPELLED TO BEG FOOD.
An English correspondent says be had
on interview with Mr. William O’Brien,
editor of United Ireland and member
of Parliament lor Mallow, in the county
Cork. In answer to a question by the
correspondent as to the condition of the
people in Ireland, Mr. O’Brien said :
“The prospects of the Irish peasantry
were never better than they are at the
present moment. There have been many
winters before this when it has required
desperate means to get food and fuel.
Thank God, that is over. The Irish
peoplo are now so situated that they can
take care of themselves and each other,
aud that is about all they have ever
asked. Como what may, there will be
no more famines in Ireland to appeal
to the benevolence of the rest of the
world. The farmers have learned the
lesson taught for so many years by
Charles Parnell that they must secure
Tor themselves and for their children a
decent means of support, they are as
a rule striving to support themselves
properly. The landlords now recognize
the fact that the support of the family
is the first charge upon the rental of a
farm, and their claims upon the farms
are gradually slipping away from them.
Their interest in the farms is worth but
little now, and It is decreasing year by
year. The level of comfort in Irish
farmers’ homes has been distinctly
raised within the past few years, and
Ireland will never again be compelled
io go, cap in hand, to ask America 01

Neglect of Horses.
AN ILLINOIS FARMER TELLS HOT? HE
TREATS HIS ANIMALS.
Shall I be far -wrong in saying that the
horse is often a neglected animal on tho
farm? Sometimes a farmer practices
economy by stinting the work horses
in food during the winter for the reason
that they are doing oomparatiYely no
work. The houses stand idle perhaps
for weeks, receive little care and scant
food. In the spring they come out very
weak, and if put suddenly to hard work
are injured by it.
Of course there is danger in overfeed¬
ing. But the best farmers give a steady,
good diet the year round. It may be
expedient to feed less for a time, when
the horses cannot be properly exercised,
but in that case do not forget to gradu¬
ally increase the quantity of food as the
time approaches when the horses must
be put to steady work, Also endeavoi
to begin with short days’ work and ac¬
custom them gradually to severe labor.
The horse is keenly affected by harsh¬
ness and neglect. To drive or work a
dispirited, unkempt animal whose ribs
can be counted tells a tale of shiftlcse
ness, to say the least. Nor must the
quality of food be forgotten. Oats are
a highly stimulating foci. For work
horses I like a mixture of bran and oats.
