IN THE CATACOMBS.
DV It. It. BALLARD.
Never lived Yankio yet,
But was ready to liet
On the U. S. A.
1 you speik of Italj 's sunny clime,
"Maine kin beat it, every time 1"
Ii you tell of Etna's fount of fire,
You route his ire.
In an injuied way
He'll probably ay,
"I' don't think much of a smokiii' hill,
We've got a moderate little rill
Kin make yer old rolcaner still;
Pour old Niagary don the crater,
'N'l guess 'twill cool her fiery na'.u-."
Yonhava doubtless heard of those o-ieientlke,
Manufactured for a prize;
The roputation nf each rose higher,
At he proved himself the bigger liar.
Said an Englishman "Only 'tothcr day,
Bal inc from Dover to Calai',
I saw a man without float or oar,
Swimming across from the Knglish shore,
Manfully breasting tlio angry sea "
'Fritnd," said the Yankee, "that was mo 1"
Mindful of all these thrice-told taltr,
Whenever a Yankieto Europe aails,
The boys try every sort of plan
To route his astonishment, if they can.
Sam Brown wan a fellow from way down East,
Who never was "staggered" in tho least.
No tale of marvellous beast or bird,
Could match the stories ho had heard.
No curious place or wondrous view

They showed him a room whero a queen had
Twan't "Unto the tavern daddy kept."
They showed him Lucerne. Hut he had drunk
rom tho ueautilul MollichunkamuiiK.
They took him at last to ancient itomc,
And inveigled him into a catacomb.
Here they plied him with draughts of wine,
(Though he vowed old cider was twice as fine),
Till the fumes of Kulernian filled his head,
And he slept as sound as tno silent dead.
They removed a mummy to make him room,
And laid him at length in the rocky tomb.
They piled old skeletons round the stone,
Set a "dip" in a candlestick of bone,
And loft liim to slumber thero alone,
Then watched from a distance the taper's
Waiting to jeer at his frightened scream,
When he should aako from his drunken
After a time the Yankeo woko,
But instantly saw throutrh the flimsy joke ;
So novir a cry or a shout lie uttered,
But solemnly rose uinl Blowly muttered,
"I see how it is; it's the judgment day,
We've all been dead and stowed nway;
All these atone furrcncrssletpiu' yet,
An' I'm tho fust one up, oii bit I

ger of the best and laigest factories. In
most villages or towns theio is a limited
demand for really choice butter at good
prices. We have known cases in which
small butter dairies wcio made vciy piof-
itablo, when they formed a pait of a gen-
ci.d system of fanning. On the other
hand, few branches ol larming aie more
uiisatisfactoiy than is butter l.iising as
carried on on the majority of faims.
Most of tho butter iu such cases is made
in tho summer niont s, when prices aie
lowest, and all bands on the f.uui aiomost
busy. Whether good 01 bad the butter is
tiadcd at tho stoio for gioceries. Vast
quantities of butter do not bung the
makers nioio than liom ten to twelve
tents a pound.
Oncgieat advantage of butter making
over cithei of the other blanches is that
the skimmed milk is let.iincd at home.

BEES IN OKtdON.
Complai.vt is made that bees are not
doing well this' year, and the honey crop
will bo short. It is said that white clover
was killed by the winter, and this causes
a scarcity of provender for the bees.
Whether this is mciely true of some local
ities or of all Western Oiegon wo do not
know, but it seems certain that the late
winter caused a scries of disasters, and
farmers will long have cause to remember
it. The leaden skies continue, without
any pro-pect of rain soon, and the time is
almost gone by when rain can bring help
to grain fields or gardens. The Hillsboro
Independent says :
Mr. A. H. Garrison cut a bee-tree near
Hillsboio lately, and although tho colony
was a large one, he found scaicely any
honey. Wo had noticed several weeks
ago that our own bees had killed off the
diones and dragged them out ol tho hive
before they had hatched, and couldn't ac
count for it, and the season is said to be
the scarcity of honey food for bees. A
large apiarist near Portland informed an
Oregonian reporter that the honey yield
near Portland will bo veiy small. The
white clover, which Usually furnishes an
abundant yield of honey, was nearly all
killed last Winter; and the weather also
being cool has not brought out the nectar
m such other lloweis as have put loith.
Two weeks ago the bees commenced kill
ing off tho diones, which is never done
until late in the fall, after the honey sea
son is over and the bees have commenced
uncapping the (hone cells and to drag
out of the cells the unhatched diones,
which shows that the workers are econo
mizing to save stores to cairy them
tlnough the winter.
A friend at Salem who visited Mr. Sei
dell Biooks' bee faun in the foot hills on
Silver cicek.tlnce miles above the falls, in
Marion county, says that out of 300
stands Mr. Brooks had only forty remain
ing ; the lest died in tho winter, and those
remaining had to bo fed, as they had not
strength to foi age for food. It is probable
th it he took too much honey fiom them.

I injurious to the plants common to that
region that usually piovides tho bees with
honey. That is in the famous "honey
belt," of which so much has been told in
the past. The plants piobably bloomed
in Maich, and the cold lains of April
acted on them unfavorably.
About Handling Bees.
Tho Indiana Fanner says that the
great danger of being stung deters many
a ono fiom the pleasiuo and piolit of bee
keeping, and while it is impossible to
aveit all stings, the danger fiom this
soiuce is eiy much magnified. Bees
seldom sting except in defense of their
rights and homes. They aie not unlike
the human race; at times they miscon
stiuo intentions, jet their attacks are
alw.rjs tiaccablo to a inestimable cause at
ler.st. Tho fust object, then, is to study
theii natiuc. With this knowledge they
may bo handled without much danger of
being stung. A boo vvitli honey seldom
stings without gie.it agitation. Beginneis
should cover their faces until theyacquiie
confidence in themselves This is easily
done by a light bobinet veil made to
cov ci the face and tucked in under the
clothes mound tho neck. Gentleness
and fiimnes aie necessary qualities in

as possioie. i lining a good honey now
there i scarcely any danger of being
stung, with anything like fair treatment
for the bees. With not much honey com
ing iu, they aie much moie liable to resist
inteifeionco. By tho judicious use of
smoke they may bo managed without
niuch trouble, and whilo it is not neces
sary to icsort to this under all circum
stances, it is best to have tho smoke ready
so that it can be used if tho occasion re
quires it. The eoustiuction of hives, too,
has much to do with the handling of
bees. Tho frames should be hung so that
they maybe taken out without first hav
ing to piy them looc, fortheie is nothing
that aioii-cs their anger sooner than till
sudden jar and breaking loose of a fi.imc.
Wheio tho frames must lie pried loose
ono should have a strong bladed knife, or
small screw timer. Vrj the frames loose,

A Large Turtle.
Capt. Augustus G. Hall and the crew of
the schooner Annie L. Hall vouch for the
follow ing : On March 30th, while on the
Grand Bank, in latitude -10 deg. 10 mill ,
longitude 3IJ deg., they discovered an im
mense live trunk turtle, which vvos at
first thought to be a vessel bottom up.
The schooner passed within twenty-five
feet of the monster,, and those on hoard
had ample time to estimate its dimen
sions by a eonipiiison vvitli the length of
the schooner. The tin tie was at least
40 feet long, 30 feet wide and 30 feet from
the apex of the back to the bottom of the
ut.der shell. The flippers were twenty feet
long. It was not i.ecnicd advisable to
attempt its capture.
Moie farm machinery is injured by
needless exposure to weather than by use.
A machine that will last ten j-ears with
careful housing will be ruined in three
seasons if left out during the winter sea
son. A eoat of paint, fust well oiling the
woodwork, will greatly add to the duia

should procure some paint, and learn to
