AT THE LAST.
The stream is oalmcst when it ncars the tide
The flowers are sweetest at the eventide,
And birds raost musical at close of day,
And saints divinest when they pass away.
fornlng is lovely, but a holier charm
Lies folded close in evening's robe of balm
And weary man must ever love her best,
For Morning call3 to toil, but Night to rest.
She comes from Heaven, and on her wings
A holy fragrance,like the breath of pray'r;
Footsteps of Angels follow in her trace,
To shut the weary eyes of Day in peace.
All things are hushed before her, as she
O'er earth and sky her mantle of repose ;
There is a calm, a beauty, and a power
That morning knows not, in the evening
" Until the evening" we must weep and
rio w li fe's stern furrow, dig the weedy soil,
Tread with sad feet our rough and thorny
And bear the heat and burden of the day.
O, when our snn is setting, may we glide
Liko Summer evening, down the golden
And leave behind U3, as we pass away
Sweet, starry twilight, round our sleeping
most excellent way to dry pump
kin." After it is nicely stewed,
put in a tin pan, set it over a kettle
of boiling water, and stir occasion
ally. The same process is good
fur drying sweet corn, after being
boiled and cut from the cob. She
also says: When you have more
material for minced pipes than you
wish to use immediately, prepare
it all as for pies, but "much more
wet; put it in a clean brass or
porcelain kettle, cook it an hour
or two no matter how long, if
you stir it occasionally, and not let
it burn then pack in ajar, cover
it with melted butter, or molasses
of sugar, and then it will keep all

A correspondent of the Dee
Journal plants catnip along the
fences and out of the way places,
where weeds ordinarily grow, for
forage for bees. lie says bees
work on it in all kinds of weather.

does other flowering plants, and it
is in bloom from the time it first
makes its appearance until killed

- English stew is the name giv
en to the following preparation of
cold meat : Cut the meat in slices ;
pepper, salt, and flour them, and
lay them in a dish. Take a few
pickles of any kind, or a small
piantity of pickled cabbage, and
Fprinkle over the meat. Then take
n teacup, half full of water ; add to
it a small quantity of catsup, and
any gravy that may be set by tor
use. Stir all together, and pour it
over the meat, feet the meat be
fore the fire, with a tin behind it,
or put in a Dutch oven, or in an
oQcn of the range, as may be most
convenincnt, for about half an hour
before dinner time. This is a
cheap and simple way of dressing
cold meat, which is well deserving
Another direction for stewing
consists in subjecting meat, for a
considerable time, to a very mod
crate heat, in a small quantity of
water. No good stew for an early
dinner can be made the day it is
wanted. The plan recommend is
to cut the meat in pieces of the re
quired size, pack them closely to
gether, covering them with cold
water, or, what is preferable, broth ;
place the stewpan where it will
gradually warm, and keep it for
some hours at a heat considerably
short of boiling. The albumen is
thus dissolved, and the fibres so
far softened and separated that the
toughest parts become tender and
digestible. 8 The stew should be
put away in an open vessel until
the next day, when the fat should
be removed from the top, and veg
etables and seasonings added ; it
may be thickened with flour or
meal, if required.

An English farmer has been
Fent to prison for a month -for
sending bad beef to market.
Among the great industrial
interests of this country the horse
may be considered as standing in
the foremost rank of animal pro
ductions. For many years he has
been constantly increasing in num
bers and value so rapfdly, and
with such constant accretions, that
the number of horses now in the
United States will fall little short
of 8,000,000 in the aggregate, and
representing in money value the
enormous sum of upwards of $2
000,000, nearly equal to the whole
amount of our national indebted
ness, and more than the whole gross
amount of the gold product of Cal
ifornia, and probably of the world
during the time which has been
occupied in raising these animals.

Unfailing Yeast. Boil two
ounces of the best hops in four
quarts of water for half an hour,
strain it. and let it stand until luke
warm then put into it a quarter of
a pound of salt, and halt a pound
of moist sugar; beat up one pound
of fine flour with some of the li
quor, and mix all well together.
Let it stand for two days. Then
add three pounds of potatoes, boil
ed and mashed. Let it stand one
more day. Then strain, put it
into bottles, and it is ready for use.
Do not cork the bottles till the
yeast has done working. While
making, keep it near the fire, and
stir frequently. Before using,
shake the bottle well. If put in a
cool place, it will be good for two
months. The bread requires lon
ger time to rise in the sponge, and
in the dough, than with common
yeast, and is best baked in tiny.
Gjteen Pka Sour. Shell a peck
of peas and boil them until quiet
tender in two quarts of water.
With a little cold milk, stir two
half spoonful of flour, very smooth;
add a little salt, black pepper, and
and a dust of cayenne pepper, and
stir that into the boiling peas, un
til the whole boils again, and you
will have a cheap and wholesome
Summer dish. Green pea soup
may also be made by using broth,
instead of the milk and water.

quarts of sour milk or cutter milk,
six eggs, one pound brown sugar,

The following from flic Chicago Dal
ly Republican, contains runny truths which
the people of Oregon in porticular seem
to be. in a rreat raeasave, strangers to.
Hence we give it a place in our crlumns,
and commend it to the careful considers
tion o t our readers :
" What tells us sc readily the standard
of a town cr city as the appearance of
its paper? And its youth, or age can as
well be defined by the observing as by
personal notice. The enterprise of its
citizens, is depicted by its advertise
ments, their liberality by the looks of the
paper. Some papers show a good, solid,
healthy foundation., plethoric purses, and
a well to do appearance generally ; others
show a striving to contend with the grasp
ing thousands around them, trying hard
to wrench out tvi existence from the close
fisted community around them. An oc
casion metoric display in its colums of
telegraphic or local, or of editorials shows
what it can do if it had the means, but can
not continue ia the expensive work until
support comes, which ought to be readi
ly granted. A newspaper is like a church ;
it wants fos'ering at the early commence-
m?at, and for a few years ; then, as a gen
eral thing, it can walk alone, and reilect
credit upon its location. Take your home
paper, it elves you more news of immedi
ate interest than the New York or other
papers : it talks for you when other local
ities belie you ; it stands up lor your
rights : you aiways have a champion m
your home paper ; and those who stand
up tor you should certainly be well sus
tained. Your interests are kindred and
equal. 3-011 must stand or fall together.
Therefore it is your interest to support
your home paper, not grudgingly, but m
a liberal spirit, as a pleasure, not as a
disagreeable duty, but as an investment
that will amply pay the expenditure."
jES Newspapers, by enhancing the
value of property in their neighborhood,
and giving the locality in which they are
published a reputation abroad, benelit all
particularly if thev are merchants or real
estate owners, thrice the amount yearly of
the sum they pay lor their support. Be
sides, every spirited citizen has a laudable
pride in having a paper of which he is not
ashamed, even though he should pick it
up in New York or Washington. A cjood-
looking, thriving, live newspaper helps to
sen property, gives character to the lo
cahty, and in all respects is a desirable
public convenience. If. trom anv cause
the matter in the local or editorial columns
saould not be quite up to vour standard
do not cast it aside and pronounce it of no
account, until you are satisfied that then
has been no more labor bestowed upon i
than is paid for. If you want a good read
able sheet, it must be supported. The
local press is the " power that moves the

"The Gang How made by J. C. Pffil,'
Arenzville, Cass county Illinois, is received
with no little favor in the west., Almost in
credible stories are told of its excellence
and efficiency in plowing the prairie litl.ia
if Illinois and other States.
. " The depth of the furrow is regulated by
the crark-axle, which is so arranged that
the ploughs can' be driven deeper or shal
lower at the pleasure of the driver, when the
team is rooming, by means of the lever.
We also manufacture sulkey plows for
Small boys, or infirm persons who are unable
t'o manage a team cf three or four horses.
This gang or suikcy plow, will cut a fur
row from 2 to 10 rnches deep.
"The committee' y;ho tested the dranpht
of this plow with a f ynamometer state, that
it ran lighter by 140 pounds, than other plows
when running" at th j 3'amc depth, and held'
by the plowman vhih on foot."

more work than t,co' men can do with
walking Plows, anct the same amount
of team. Hence, it will be seen that
