"I gueM I'll borry the Bishop's hay-rick to-morrer, nn' go after a load o' hay, an' you youngtters kin come along an^ help stsmp it, ef you want to." The children set up a joyful shout, for this was a treat to t ^ m , as it would be to any one, to tumble about in the long grass, to flah for minnows in the coo^ migliog creek, to wade into it knee-decp for watercress, to pick tart, wild straw* berries, and to eat all these delicacies wiih the sweet home-made brmid and country butter.

Caddie t'tared at him scornfully, not because she was offended at his free lan-guage, she was quite used to that; but this-uncouth creature had as much nat-ural coquetry as any other 16-year old girL "How much be you pain' fer tip-top butter nowf" she atked; "I II let TOU her' this here, ef you'll giv' me six bits a roll fer it." "Oh, come now," he said, "you don't want to do me out of all my profits like that Eeein' it's you, Til let ye hev two bits a pound fer it, and that'K more'n I'd do fer anybody <el se." "Well," said the girl, "I gtiess I'll jest look at some shoes, and if I kia see a pa'r I like, I'll jest take 'em for the butter." Caddie's mother had gone with her numerous offspring to visit a friend, and Caddie was l1e ft a'one to do ber trading. Her elderly admirer took advantage of I this fact to plead ^ case with the hand- ' some girL I "Ton've ^ t a purty face fer a gal of ' your aize," he ssio, as she tried on a pair ot calfskin shoes, decliniog all help ftom him. m •-Huh!" said the lady, too engrossed wifli her task to notice the compliment; "tke«e here shoes fiU kinder slick, but I don't b'lieve they'll hold water when the anowcomes." "Oh, they'll ho}d water f u t enough," ha answered; "but they ain't half nice < enough fer such a handsome gaL Now I here's a pa'r o' kid shoes I'm sarin' fer my wife.''

A raw, mellow apple is digested in an hour and a half, while Lolled cabbiwe requires five hours. The most healthful desert that can be placed on the table is baked apple. If taken freely at break-fast, with coarse bread, and without meat or flesh of any kind, it has an ad-mirablceTect on the general systism, often removing constipation, correcting acidi-ties, and cooling off febrile conditions more effectually than the most approved medicines. If familiea could be induc^ to substitute the apple—sound, ripe aqd luscitftis-forthe pies,cakes, candies and other sweetmeats, with which children are too often stuffed, there would be a diminution of doctor's bills suSicient in a single yeat to lay up a stock of this de-licious fruit for a season's use. Lanndry Uetboda In Holland. The washerwomen of Holland and ;!um, so proverbial for their clean beautifully white linen, U3e raQned borax as a washing powder, in the pro-portion of a half pound of borax powder to ten gallons of water.

Borax being a neutral salt does not in the smallest degree injure the tex-turo of the linen. Next comes starching.

The skirts of this season's dresses«are very simple, and not intricate in the way of drapmes. The foundation skirt is from two and one-quarter to two and one-half yards wide, and it always has a pleating at the edge. Bat this is not much seen, as the upper drapery is so long that it neariy covers i t use of ft being munly to keep the plain drapery from setting in too flatly over the feet The newest way of making the back drapery is to sew it into the back, with large plaits, which hang down in folds, the drapery falling atraigbt to the edge of the akirt The only variation to this arrangement is that the back breadth is lifted up and caught here and there with a stitch, to add slightly to ita fullness. The foundation skirt consists of a gored front breadth, a gored breadth on each side, and a stnught w'.dth at the back ungored. A small mattress about seven inches square is worn, and one or two steels. T^ese last are no longer put in in a straight line, but form an arch upwards; the top steel coming,about six incho3 below the waist in the center, and about twelve inches at each end. This is a much more com-fortable way of puMng in the steels than the <o ld one.—-H oweaife. Reclpea.

DASTBB, a French physiologist, who has been experimenting -with ani-m ^ to determine the nature of sea-sickness, reports that after they had been subjected to various kinds of mo-tion, corresponding to the rolling and pitching of vesaela, he found their in-testines stranguly displaced. He con-cludes that a similar disturbance pro-duces seasicknesn on board ships. Cocaine is said to be an excellent rem-edy. Another French phyaioian, who agrees 'with Dr. Dastre as to the caases of seasickness, claims to have discovered two infallible remedies, one a mature of atropine and strychnine, and the other caffeine. AN ofBcer of a French regiment con-demned several soldiers for breaches of discipline to run for three hours, car-rying their rifles and full equipments. A corporal named Vallad at the end of two hours fell down' exhausted. The sergeant wished to let him rest, but the superior officer insisted that he be made to get up and finish his task, saying that he should run imtil be dropped dead.
