Cure for Gossip.
We clip the following from the
Hartford Post, and recommend it to
the careful consideration of all those
afflicted with the loathsome habit:
What is the cure for gossip? Simply
culture. There is a great deal of
gossip which has no malignity in it.
Good natnred neonle talk about their
neighbors because, and only because,
they have nothing else to taDi about.
As we write there con-es to us a pic
true of a family of young ladies. e
have seen them at home; we have
seen them at the galleries of art; we
have caught glimpses of them going
from a book store or library, with a
fresh volume in their hands. W hen
we met them they are fall of what
they ha-e seen and read. Iney are
brimming with questions. Oue topic
of conversation is ciroppeu umj w
Kive place to another in which they
are interested. We have left them,
af tera delightful hour, stimulated and
refreshed, and during the whole hour
not a neighbor's garments was soiled
br so much as a touch. They had
something to talk about. They knew
something and wanted to know more.
They could listen as well as they
could talk. To speak freely of a
neighbor's doings and belongings
would have seemed an impertinence
to them, and, of course, an impro
priety. They had no temptation to
gossip, because the doirigs of their
neighbors formed a subject verv
mucli less interesting than those
which grow out of their knowledge
and their culture. And this tells
the whole story. The confirmed
gossip is always either miiieio-is
or ignorant. The one variety needs
a change of heart, the other a clu.i.j t
of pasture. Gossip is alwavs a mr-
sonal confession either 6f malice or
imbecility, and the young should
not only shun it, but by the most
thorough culture relieve themselves
from all temptation to indulge in it.
It is a slow, frivolous and dirtj'
business. There are countrv neigh
borhoods in which it rages like a
pjst. Churches are split in pieces
ly it. Neighbors are made enemies
by it for life. In many persons it
degenerates into a common disease
which is incurable. Let the young
cure it while they may.
The Profits of a Dairy
An exchango says, "If a farmer
keeps 30 cows that average $30 a year
each for milk, and he can increase the
average to -10 a year by the use
of a thorouhgh bred, bull, of a good
milking breed, he cau afford to pay
a good price for such a bull. And
3-et better results than this have been
accomplished. If he is raising cat
tle for beef, and he can 4idd 200
pounds to the carcass of each by the
time that it is ready, by the use of a
short-horn bull, it will certainly be
profitable for him to pay a good
price for such a bull. And yet this
is the average result of using thorough-bred
bulls on the native cows
of the country, as is estimated by all
the best stock-breeders. And thi3
200 pounds is clear grain, for it is
produced with no greater consump
tion of food. If the use of a thor
oughbred ram on a flock of common
will increase the weight of fleece
one pound on the average, certainly
more than five in a hundred could
make it pay; whether more than
one in the five would not, is another
question. And so with hogs. The
difference between the common
"woods" breed of the past, and the
improved breed of to-day, is beyond
Had a Cjcestiox. In one of the
union schools theother day a teacher
departed for half an hour from the
usual programme and asked her
scholars such questions as might
interest them. After she had asked
"What makes the wind blow?"
"What causes rain ?" "Who invent
ed the locomotives ?" and so forth,
and helped to explain them, she said.
"Now, children, any of you wdio
so desire can ask me questions."
No one seemed to think of anything,
except, a freckled-faced boy about
fourteen years old. He raised his
hand, and the teacher said:
"Well, Robert, have you a ques
tion?" "Yes, mum. I'd like to know
what they mean when they say to a
feller: Oh, pull down your vest!'"
The teacher had to admit that she
was behind theae.
Clarence Hartley is the name of a
six year old lad residing with his
parents at Lincoln, Nebraska, who
lias excited the. wonder of the people
and caused his name to appear in the
papers as a very prodigy of a whis
tler. This lad, so the papers say,
can whistle any tune after hearing it
once either sung or played, in the
most faultless manner, both as to
time and the scale. In fact whistling
seems natural to him, and he is ac
customed to whistle an accompani
ment to his sister when uhe plays on
the piano. Detroit Free Press.
Uiir devil can beat that. He is
continually whistling tunes nobody

A Vermont genius is trying to
manufacture false hair from bass
wood. It is to be hoped he will
succeed. It will be ruore pleasant
for a fellow to gaze from his pillow
in the morning upon the switch
hanging over the back of a chair and
and wonder what tree it came from,
then to speculate upon what dead
woman it was once attached to.
