Tcachluu Calves to Kat.
Wo havo always had considerable
trouble to got our calvoa to oat dry food,
as soon as is deairabh. Wo usually
tako them from tho cow al from three
to five days old, and givo them frcsb
milk until two weeks old, when we be
gin to mid skim milk to their rations.
At ttils period wo should liko to havo
them begin eating bran, abort or
shelled corn, or better all together, to
make up for tho diminished quality of
tho milk. But bow to got thorn to eat
ing baa boon tho dilllculty. As tho
easiest way out of it wo usually prac
ticed tho plan of stirring tho bran or
aborts into the milk and letting thorn
drink what they would of it. Hut for
various reasons wo don't liko that moth
od. Wo profcr that they should oat it.
If you think that a mere "notion," wo
shall not quarrel with you about it.
Tho past winter wo accidentally discov
ered a way out of tho dilllculty of tdacb
iug them to eat. When tho first calf
put in an appearance wo had no sepa
rate stall or shed to put it in. Onr
ahoopsbed being of good dimensions
for tho number of sheep, wo concluded
to turn it in thoro. About tlio timo wo
flxod for feeding skim milk and shorts
wo happened to visit tho shod soon af
ter the boy hod fed tho sheep thoir
morning feed of corn and aborts, and
to our surprise wo found tho calf occu
pying a place at tho trough, and catiug
wiUi avidity. Tho uoxt one that came
wo disposed of in tho aamo way and
with the aamo result. Tho third fol
lowed, it littlo bit of a half-blood Jer
sey, that wo could pick np and carry
under ono arm, almost as easily as n
lamb; and it could not havo been more
than ten days old wheu wo observed it
beginning to imitate tho sheep and
other calves iu going to tho trough,
and at least " going through tho mo
tion." of taking tho feed. Now wo ore
not going to ad vise you to raiso sheep
to tcaou your calves to oat dry feed 4
(perhaps ours didu't), but if you havo
tlio sheep and want your calf to lcaru
early to eat without taking the trouble
yourself to teach it, yon might try tho
plan. Ohio 1-hrmtr.

A Kevolution in Mexico.
A year without a revolution in Mexi
co, or an attempt at ono, at least, wonld
lo liko a summer without rain in other
countries. It is not surprising that ono
is in progress now. President Diaz, it
will be remembered, owes his office to
a revolution. In 187G President Lerdo,
a Liberal, was chosen to succeed Senor
Jnarcx. Tho rival candidato was Gon-
oral Porflrio Diaz, who on pretenoo that
tho 'election nod been irregular,
marched on tho capital and proclaimed
himself provisional President. But ho
was at once plunged into difficulties.
Honor Iglesios, Chief Justico of tbo Su
premo Court, had aided Diaz in over
throwing Lerdo. According to the
Mexican Constitution, tho Chiof -Justico
suoceods to tho Broaidenoy whenever
thoro is a vacancy or failure to elect.
Igloahu, thorefore, claimed tho lresi
dency, and whon Diax usurped it, with
drew from tho capital and declared
against him. It was uot until tho olose
of 1877 that tho opponents of Diaa
woro conquered and ho became firmly
seated in tho Presidency, to which Lo

and influential clwse who had been

Weston's performance in covering &M

be oi no particular impoiianco from a

on a now man tho fact that ho had

would havo fnrnishod an occasion for
tho Amorican oaglo to display himsolf,
bnt Weston bos ongagod in so many
matches that bis victory will not croato
noarly tho same oxcitemont in Now

Weston a weakness to set his mark a lit
tlo higbor than ho could reach, and his
romarkablo performances havo boon
overrated simply becauso of tho impos
sibilities ho has nndortakon. Never
theless, what ho has now dono is a very
romartaijlo acniovomont. Kowell in

Howell's than between Howell's and
that of tho second man in this race.
Howell mado barely 500 miles andEnnis
mado 475, whereas tho winner in this
raco in making 550 miles has beaten
Howell by something liko fifty miles.
Thoro is every reason to expect that
witnin a very few years a IonK-distanco
walking match of six days will bo won
witu a record oi not Joss than Cw miles,
or 100 miles a day. This would Ixran
excellent performance for a horso. In
fact, so faros we remember, it has never
thus far beon oqaaled or even ap
proached by a horso. Pcoplo who havo
studied ho powers and performances
of horses and men have long been of
tho opinion that in point of endurance
the biped Was much to bo preferred to
the quadruped. Thoy aro justified by
tho result of tbo recent long-distance
matches. The owner of iv horso who
should subject bis animal to the extreme
tests to which Weston and Brown have
submitted themselves would probably
como undor tho official notice of Mr.
Borgh. The record of any six days'
walk is regarded with consternation by
every man who has walked enough to
know what fast walking moans, and who
has yet not walked enough to know how
much exertion tho human system will
bear. Thcro is no reason to believe
that any professional pedestrian coald
como nearer to Weston's record than
his opponent in tho present match has
heretofore dono, but there is reason to
believe that professional pedestrians
will hereafter succeed in beating wea-
toae tiaae'evea saore tbaa Weston has
beaten the time of his predecessors.
At ail oventa. if tho dreeent race ia re
peated in this city, there is reason to ex
pect that tho record wilt be beaten, and
that tho winner will be obliged to sur
pass a feat of pedestrianism which now
seems to bo tho limit of human perse
verance and endurano. 2Tao York

Tho novelty which attracts most at

daring tho ovening performances of
Lothian's band aro tho new and strange

trance to the piazza on the inner court
a light is suspended on high, and from
its single radiance the entire length of
that sido is illuminated with a wonder
ful brilliancy, yet without that glare
and heat consequent upon tho employ
ment oi gas. diagonally opposite at
tho other end ot tho conn yard, a simi
lar light is placed, and by virtue of tbo
two tho entire lighting ot tno court is
accomplished. Tho piece derttulance,
however, and that which attracts so
much attention is tho throwing of vari
ously colored lights upon the central
fountain by means of colored electric
lights placed on the piazza at tno mr
tber end. Tho result is magical. One
moment you see the fountain playing
waters of a delicate rose color; the next
momont they deepen into the richest
crimson, and change alternately into
orange, pale yellow, green, purple or
blae. AU these, and other colors which
I cannot think of at present, are in

this, but oftentimes three and four aro
simultaneously united with incredibly
beautiful results. Then again, oil aro

indeed, being a cunning device, since

Thoy drift away from the hive in a wide

her as a pivot, over orchards and

woods and deep valleys, straight tor tho
