slightly coquottish, in thoughtless,

catch her daughter's eye, but tho gay
uniforms wore too attractive, and tho
llttlo Princess paid no attontion to tho
silent ondenvors of hor mother. At

climax of misdemeanors by dropping
lior handkerchief ovor tho side of tho
carriage, and tho Queen saw that it
was not an accident. Immediately two

horses to return it to hor, butthohnnd
of roynlty waved them off.
'Thank you, but it is not necessary,"

All plants that are set out in the fall

What are called pour apples aro really
sweet, though their tartness hides the
saccharine properties they contain. Some
of the richest sour apples, as the Itusset,
make very strong vinegar, which thoy
could not" do if they did not contain a
good deal of sweetness.
Ti tiinl!m nS1nr fftc vinotrni1 if ia n tillU

rior apples for that purpose. Good vine
gar can only be made Irom ripe and
sound apples, and where it is difficult to
ship apples to market it will pay lo con

The rich black liquid that flows off
from the barn-yard contains the wealth
of the farm. Use absorbent material,
and save it. The loss of liquid manure
is groat, and if saved would not only add
fertilizing matter to the farm but In
creases tho value of the solids.
Asparagus beds may bo mado now.
Placo the roots two fcjt apart, first mak
ing the bed very rich with manure. I
is usual to have the roots closer, but as
the roots will thicken in tho bed in tho
course of time, it is better to allow
plenty of room in tho beginning.
Rose slugs will do damage if the
bubhea nre not. guarded. A solution of
an ounce of pyretlirum powder in a gal
lon of water, sprayed on the bushes, is
excellent, but a stream of water from a
force pump, applied daily, is ono of the
best remedies tliat can be used.
Keep something growing on the land
and you will then keep down the weeds.
It does not pay to take off a crop and
then allow tho laud to grow up in weeds.
It ia better to plow the laud frequently
if no crop is on it. The aim should be
to not allow a single weed to grow.
Tho quality of milk cannot be fixed by
law. The milk from some cowa will
contain a lower percentage of solid mat
ter than others. It is oven impossible
to obtain the same quantity of milk from
ono cow. Her food, duration of milking
period, facilities for obtaining water and
the manner of being milked influences
tho quality. The milk of cows from
young grass will vary greatly from that
produced from ground grain.
As soon as the coupling season is over
he breeding ewes should be separated
from' tho flock and fed on nourishing
food. They should not bo made too fat,
for fear of milk fever at lambing time,
but they require good feeding if they are
to produce strong lambs. Plenty of hay
mith a mesa of ground oats once a day
should keep them in good condition
without liability of the ewea becoming
Do not make the earth in boxes and
flower jots too rich. All plants pro
tected during the winter by Betting them
on a stand in a warm room, such as
geraniums, should not muse heavy
growth, but be kept in good condition
for slipping, as the spring and summer is
the proper season for having them to per
fection. The nie.dy bug must bo
guarded against when the plants are
kept in warm atmosphere.
Frozen milk cannot only be trans
lated with ease, but as long as it can be
kept frozen will come out perfectly fresh.
Experiments iu this line showed that in
cooking qualities and in yield of cream
aa well as in other respects, frozen milk
corresponded with quite new milk, and
butter and cheese could be prepared
from it quite aa well as from now milk.
Theso results are detailed in a paper by
M. Guerin, of Grandvihes, Vosges, be

It is proposed to try the idea on a large

Now that horses will be stabled at
night or should be, the most perfect
cleanliness should be observed. The
floor, if of wood, should bo frequently
drenched with water, and then sprinkled
with finely ground, gypsum (plaster), by
which tho etrong, pungent odor common
to stables will bo neutralized and ab
sorbed. This strong odor of ammonia,
which often pains the eyes and nostrils
of a man, is exceedingly injurious to
horses. It rota leather and corrodes
varnish, and what must bo its effect on
the eyes and lungs of the horses confined
in it during whole nights ? Foul air pro
motes glanders, farcy, blindness, influ
enza (epizootic), pneumonia, heaves, all
coiuiirn diseases of horses; and tho
acrid manure in which horses are com
pelled to stand causes not only the in
jurious vapor but rots the hoofs and irri
tates the skin.
The blunders and carelessness of
liorse-shoers often subject "tho noblest
of all auitnals" to needless discomfort if
not cruelty. A recent writer remarks
that tho proper form of tho ahoo can bo
adapted for relieving concussion in
horBea subjected to hard and fast work.
It allows the frog and probably a portion
of the solo and bars to come in contact
with tho ground, so that the weight of
tho animal is distributed over a greater
surface of the foot, and not confided en
tirely to the wall, as in the case of the
seated shoe. The elasticity of tho horn
may to somo extent relievo the foot and
leg from concussion, but tho frog, if al
lowed to come to tho ground, acts much
better Tho same authority suggeMa or
advises, on another point, in thi wise:
To prevent horses utriking th shoe of
tho forefoot with tho shoo of ih- hind
foot, shorten the toe of tho 'nrnt shoes
and lengthen those o. the himlfoot, and

Bomo other protection in the barn-yard.
A temperature of from M to 0 ' is nec
essary in churning, and lis the weather
becomes cold the churn and cream must
be warmed. Tl.e ""i.porature can be
easily regulated by tuo aid of warm and

MISTAKES IN GRAMMAR. I
niutiiler. Tlint Are FreqnentlT Srndff
Through Flieer ClnrplMsncs.
Faults nro pardonablo In conversa
llon which nro not pardonable In wrlt
:en compositions. But wo must bo
unroful not to tnko too much leoward
In this regard, and not to make mis
takes in grammar and pronunciation.
Somo people aro guilty of grammatical
blunders, through sheer carelessness.
Thus, a lady of my acquaintance, who
understands trigonometry, and can
translate Virgil, often says to mo
"you was." and yot sho knows per
fectly well that this is an inexcusable
Other people, who ought to know
better, say "hodon't" for "ho doesn't,"
'I don't know ns I do," Instead or "l
don't know that I do." "Aint" nnd
"taint" aro not often used now by ed-.:aU-d
people, unless in a jesting way.
It is an unwiso thing, however, to bo
careless or inaccurate in one's
pronunciation or uso of language,
t;!nco tricks of speech nro easily
cnught, nnd very hard to get rid of.

What shall bo Enid of tho woman
who says "I done it?" Sho has cer
tainly placed herself botweon tho horn
cf n dilemma. Hor hearers will infer
either that hor early education was
neglected, or thnt sho associated with
uneducated peoplo during her child
hood. And yot this is a grammatical
fault, which seems hard to got rid of.
Persons who never say "I seen It," oi
"ho has went," or "thorn, things," will
occasionally betray themselves by lot
ting slip tho fatal "I dono it."
It is quite as incorrect to uso "ho"
and "1" for "him" and "mo." or vice
versa, as it is to say "I dono it," and
vet the first-named class of faults that
of using tho wrong pronouns is some
times committed by educated people.
Indeed, I havo heard tho phraso "it
is mo" justified, on tho ground thnt It
was a literal translation of tho Fronch
"c' est jjioj." But our English gram
mar does not. like its French name
sake, justify tho employment of certain
pronouncial forms, merely for tho valuo
of euphony. "Hois older than I" may
not sound so well as "ho Is older than
mo," yot tho former Is tho correct form.
It la a vory common mistake to say
"Between vou and 1," nnd yet a mo
ment's reflection should convinco any
ono who has ovor studied grammar
that ho should say "Between you and
me." Florence Howo Hall, in Ladies'
HOW TO SAVE TIME.
It Cim ltd Ilnuo ly Milking Kvi'i-y Word

Time is money, says tho old ndago.
Millions of people do not seem to think
so, or else aro exceedingly profligate in
tho uso of monoy. Tho wasto of the
precious moments is boyond computa
tion, and wo do not mean to touch up
on tho generally recognized mothods
of wasting time which tho idlor and
drunkard, for instance, mako uso of.
Wo desire particularly to call atten
tion to tho wasto of time, of which so
many of us aro guilty, in ordinary bus
iness affairs. Wo lack strict method
in many things that we do every day.
Tho man who builds an inconvenient
houso or barn makes tho wasto of time
a necessity. Every unnecessary stop
wo lake is a waste of time. Perhaps tho
averago man wastes a quarter of his
life by practicing jioor mothods or no
mothods at all. Frequently old cus
toms aro greatly to blamo for tho
profligacy. Wo too often insist in
kcoplng in old ruts although It re
quires much longer to arrive at a
certain point by tho old rut than if wo
go out and cut across lots. It is said
that leaving out tho letter u in words
iiko honour is equivalent in saving to
tho world tho productlvo capacity of
llvo hundred mon every year. That is
it took all tho timo of fivo hundred
men every year to mako that letter In
such words as tho ono named. Tho
old system of teaching In our schools
was another Illustration of tho wasto
of timo through imperfect mothods
and old customs. It required weeks
and months for a child to learn the
alphabet. It required other weoks
and months for it to learn tho multi
plication table. Now many a child
is taught to road, who could not ro
pe. ,t tho alphabet to savo Its life, and
is quito prolieiont In arithmetic with
mt being ablo to repoat tho multipli
cation table. A child Is taugnt to
road iu a short time. Hla textbook Is
not a book at all. Perhaps a crass
hopper is put Into tho hand of tho llt
t;o six-year-old and ho handles and
ftudtes that grasshopper for days and
Aooks, and from It ho learns to road,
icarns tho uso of figures and a good
deal of natural history. Without go
ing Into tho dotalls of tho systotn, tho
child learns more from that system of
teaching lu a few days than ho would
learn in weeks from tho old systotn. It
Is a great saving of time.
Timo is an important elomont in all
