—In the good old Puritan times in
New England the following was the
rule and practice in some of the
churches: “That such brethren or
sister, as shall any way hereafter intend
to change their calling or condition of
life by marriage or otherwise do propose
their cases to the elders or ablest breth
ren of the church to have council from
before they make any engagements,
end in all difficult eases, an<I before all
marriages, the churches council be taken
therein.” How would the ?ouag peo
ple of the present day relish having
‘'the ablest brethren” advise or control
them in their matrimonial m Hers?—

Not long ago I had the pleasure of attend
ing one of Mr. Booth’s performances in
which ho took the part of Hamlet with great
credit to himself, as I afterward learned
from a member of the orchestra who saw the

a seat at the Hamlet performance, because I
had met Mr. Booth once in the Rocky
mountains and bad made a deep impression
on him. 1 had also told him that if he ever
happened to lie in a town where I was lectur
ing I would dismiss any audience to come
and bear him, and he might do as he thought
best about shutting up on the following night
to come and bear me.
Well, I noticed at first, when I went in,
that the row before me was unoccupied, and
I gathered myself up in a strong, mairiy em
brace and hugged myself with joy. The cur
tain humped itself, and the first act was about
in the act of producing itself, when a meek
little gentleman, with an air of conscious
guilt, came down the aisle in advance of a
woman’s excursion, cowsisring of four female
members of his family, I judged. He looked
about over the house, timidly took off bis
coat and .seemed to be preparing himself for
the vigilance committee. Then be sat down
to see whether executive clemency could do
anything for him.
The first woman of the four was jlrobably
over 4 ', and yet with her almost beardless
face she looked scarcely 38. She wore a tall,
erect hat, with a sort of plume to it, made by
pulling the paint brush tail out of an iron
gray mule and dying it a deep crimson.
She wore other clothing, but that did not
incense mo so much as this hat. which I had
to examine critically all the evening.
She moved her head also and kept time to
the music, and breathed hard in places and
shuddered once or twice. She also spoke to
the miserable man who brought her. Her
voice was a rich baritone, with a low xylo
phone action, and she breathed like the pas
sionate exhaust of an overworked freight en
gine. When she spoke to her escort I noticed
that he shortened up about four inches and
seemed to wish he bad never entered society.
The other three women had broad hats with
domes to them, and the one who sat on my
right also sat on her foot. This gave her a
fine opportunity to look out through the sky
light of the opera bouse now and tLcii. The
next one to her wore a deceased Plymouth
l^ock rooster in her hat. Tlie fourth one sat
in front of an oldub gentleman who went out
between the acts and came in with a pickled
olive in his mouth each time. He could not
see anything on the stage, but he crawled up
under the brim of this woman’s hat. with his
nose in the mashes of her hair, and his Lot,

noses that they keep above ground.
They won t mind it after a little, and
it makes them better graziers; but he
does not stint them to grass alone,
unless it be a very good clover lot. At
all times and places his hogs hogs
have access to salt, and he occasion
ally gives them a little bituminous
coal, mixed with lime, at the rate of a
bushel of coal to a peck of lime, or
some crushed charcoal in the slop. If
he has fed much charcoal he has

I bis man keeps his breeding stock
in good condition, but never fat. His
young sow goes to the boar at seven
or eight months, and if she is a good
br eder, careful mother and heavy
milker, after the first litter he lets her
run six months before coupling again.
He knows it pays better to sacrifice
some size for a better mother, a better
milker and a better breeder. He keeps
his boars and barrows in a lot by
themselves, out of sight and hearing
of sows. If there is cholera within
reach he will give some of his less par
ticular neighbors a young boar for
service sooner than let strange sows
come on the premise«, no matter what
fee may be offered.
And he is always on such terms
with his stock animals that they will
step up and speak whenever they
meet him. This the good “hogman”
will do, and more, his herd will be
“cholera” proof, and he be paid double
for it all.
globules are first broken up, and thus
sot at liberty. They are gathered to
gether first in the form of granules,
and if the churning is still further
carried the whole is gathered into a
solid mass. The proper temperature
for churning is about 60 degrees
Fahrenheit. Too violent churning
produces excessive friction. The but
ter is produced more speedily, but at
the expense of color and flavor. If
the temperature is too low the expan
sion of the fat globules is not perfect,
and increased friction is required.
Here again deficient flavor is the re
sult, and the butter is soft and will not
keep. The action of the air upon the
cream in churning is to oxydize the
coats of the fat globules and thus as
sist friction in the separation. It
makes no difference what kind of
churn is used so long as air can be ad
mitted. Speed in churning is easily
controlled. It should be such as to

All who try to raise chickens in the
old-style way know how hard is is to
get enough for the little ones to eat.
Whenever food iB thrown out to them
the old liens rush and pick it up,
crowding or driving the little ones
away. In such feeding, a pen which
the chickens can enter, but which will
not admit the old hens, is a necessity.
This is really the only way to enable
the little ones to get enough to eat.
Such pens can be easily made by any
one who can handle lumber. One is
made by laying poles up in log house
fashion. The space between the poles
are just large enough to let the
chickens run through. Boards are
placed over the top and held in place
by stones or blocks.

thing a little more elaborate is made

placed in the inside of either of these
coops will go to the chickens.
