A Clerical Wood Sawyer.
A Hull Fight In Tesas.
Dr. Pecehcr depended upon constant
manual labor lor keeping up his own
7 health ; and in Roston, where he "could
not enjoy the luxury f a garden to dig
i in, he was often puzzled to find means to
keen hiinselt in irood wnrkuc or.ter. i

The consequence was that he saw CM ail

often fir.diiig that too little, would heg

opposite house, V. said, '"You live there?
Work for the old man?" "Yes." ' What
sort'oFan old fellow is he?" "Oh, pretty
much like the rest of us. Good man
enough to work for." '-Tough old chap,
aint he?" "Guess so, to them that try to
chaw him up."
So the conversation went on, till the
wood went so fast with the. new comer
that VV. exclaimed, '-first rate saw that
of your'n." This touched the doctor in
a -tender point, lie had set that s:iw as
carefully as, the articles of his creed;

said W.j "where can I get a saw like
that?" "I don't know unless you bny

ask" "I don't know. I'll think about
it. Call at the house to-morrow and I'll
tell you.''' s

of Ills claims. This year, we planted the
three kinds the same day, and can fully
test their merits. Keyes's tomato has no

How to Make Shi.ncles Last.
Shingles that are painted will last much
longer than when put on in the usual
way. Some advise the use of tar, either
dipping in tar before using, or tarring
the upper end of the shingles after each
course is laid. Mr. Emerson, of Hollis,
Massachusetts, says, in a communication
to the New England Farmer, that
shingles laid in whitewash will last twice
as long as if they had not been treated
with the lime. II is plan is sometimes
to soak su ingles in thin whitewash made
with brine instead of clear water. At
other times he laid his shingles in white
wash. When this last course is adopted,
he lines each course of shingles, as laid,
with red chalk, then whitewash the last
course laid down to the line, ;i:id after
the builJing is shitih.-d the whole roof is
whitewashed. He speaks of a nmf cov
ere 1 with sappy and shaky shingles that
had lasted twenty cirs, ami would last
several years longer. In nailing, he puts
the nails about two incites apart, :md
does not drive them down, but leaves -the
heads out so as to keep-up the bats nf
the next row of shingles to allow a cir
culation of air.
To Make Cows Give Milk A

If you desire to get a large yield of

in which bran has been stirred at the rati'

You will find, if you have not found this
by daily practice, that your cow will ga'ti
