sonally superintends its exhibition. 1 Ie

county, showing that that benighted
region can turn out something more
than coal and Mollie Maguires. Mr.
Frontman is a German, but speaks
English tolerably well. He says lie
cul down a tree ami sawed it into
boards to procure lumber for the dock,
which he made with a penknife in sev­
en years. The clock reaches from
floor to ceiling, ami at its widest is
neatly five feet. Around ami below
the main dial are groups of automaton
figures that move with wonderful accu­
racy. At the top is a representation
of Napoleon and his horse that ate ap­
ple dumplings. A figure seated ¡seat­
ing dumplings, ami at intervels the
horse indulges as naturally as a wood­
en horse can be expected to do. Be­
low this is a figure of Captain Jack,the
Modoc chief, who strikes the hours
upon a gong that brings forth a pro­
cession of his warriors. Below the
main dial is a representation of Jonah
being swallowed by the whale. Jonah
at regular intervals is thrown over-
Ixiard, the whale ascends and opens its
ponderous jaws, ami Jonah is swallow­
ed. At the base of the dock is a large
scene representing Christ walking on
the water. A large ship appears with
a deck-load of apostles. The scriptur­
al account of the event is narrated
by Mr. Troutman, and the picture, is
represented automatically to the mi­
nutest detail. There are a number ol
other scenes that may be worked sep
irately or together. Noah’s ark is rep­
resented with the dove ami olive
branch, and there is a “good fairy ami
the poor women.” These automaton
figures work smoothly and posent in
foresting pictures. A music box ou
the inside of the clock plays a variety
of tunes.— Heading (Pa.) Times.

“Yes, yes; go on.”
Well, continued the lawyer, one
time a raven ami a nightingale had a
dispute as to which had the most mu­
sical voice. The raven said he pos­
sessed the finest voice, the nightingale
thought she had. As neither could
decide the dispute they decided to
leave it to a judge. The raven then
suggested the jackass as a judge, and
the nightingale consented. At once
both visited the jackass. First, the
raven displayed his vocal power, He
croaked, ami sefeamed , ami cawed for
some^ time; then, satisfied with his
trial, he ceased, and the nightingale

ORIGIN or rill' hlin.KIM HHEEON.
It is an Interesting study to con-
sider the various breeds of fowls and
note their origin. Tireir names arise
from some other peculiarity in their
form or appendage. For instance the
Dorkings are named after Dorking in
England; the Black Spanish, or as they
are otherwise known, everlasting lay­
ers,after Spain; the Polands came from
Poland; the lloudans, (pronounced
Iloudor), from Houdan, France; thd
Shanghais are named after Shanghai
in China; the Buff and Partridge Coch­
in Cliinasalso take their name from
Cochin China; the Siberia or Russian
fowls, from Russia; the Waylays, Ja­
va, Columbian?, Barbarvs, Dutch fowls,
all from their respective countries.
Phere are also the Guilders from Guil­
derland, Holland; the Bolton grays
and bays from Bolton, England, and
the Shakebag, named from the fact
that they were carried to cockpits iii
bags which the owner shook as a chal-
1 nge for some other bird. There are
many others, such as tho Creve Coe-
urs from France, silky fowls from Chi­
na and Japan, Hamburgs, Leghorns,
Brahma Pootras, all of which indicate
whence they are named. Then there
are creepers, a small variety of the
Bantams, with short legs; the jump­
ers mentioned by Buffon, another of
diminutive races, are so short-legged
that they are compelled to advance by
jumping instead of stepping. Rump­
kins, or tailless fowls, came from the
wild breed of Ceylon.— American Stock

P runing F ruit T rees .—Much*
butchery is committed by unskillful
hands under the delusive idea that
they are judiciously pruning. A
young orchardist told us a few years
ago tb it “in the thorough pruning ho
gave his apple trees tile previous spring
he had cut off more than he left on.”
Is it ¡my wonder that the orchard re­
fused to bear any considerable quantity
of fruit for several years? A skillful
prutier, by taking a glance at a young
tree, can easily see what buds should
be removed and what should be left,
and can prune it with liis thumb-nail
so that the tree will require little more
care for the season. Trees managed
thi-? way will have few large limbs re­
quiring to be cut away. Sometimes a>
limb is cut oil’ leaving a stump two or
three inches long on the tree. Aside
from the unsightly appearance, such a
wound can never heal over. If it is
necessary to remove a limb, it should
be sawn off as closely as possible to tho
stem and then smoothly trimmed off
with a sharp knife or chisel.
