B R A T aX iE B O B O , Y T . evening as we sat beside my poor mother in the garden of her pretty dower house at Twickenham. My mother joined us all three together, taking ahand of each and, looking out npon a star which had just risen, she said, in the tender, loving way she had; “ I want you two promise me something, and it is that in none of the chanccs or changes of life yon will either of you say no to a requ«st of tiie other. Bemembar my star shall be the witness between yon when I am gone.” ]fy mother had fancies of her own about the stars, and had singled oat this one as having some especial influence onheraud thoa^ she held deaieat Tiien she knew that I waa apt to be morose, aad that Alice had a high spirit, so she wisfied ns to aasore h e r ^ wovld never beeome estranged. We have both kept the pledge that we made to her. was among tho last her gentle sijirit ever asked of us. So whou Mr. Jones bounced into my study ono moruing, after tumbling over my nuiu-!scrvaut, and a folio of priiit<s which was IcAuing against the writing-table ; and when he made known to me that he was in sore distress for money, got it into my head that Alica had drawn uixtn me at sight for a thousand jiounds and that I must honor my sister’s aignatore. For it was a thousand poimds he wanted. I oould make out as much as tha‘. from his confused talk, which had a strong rosemblance to rigmarole cut into short lengths of gaejis and exclamations. I t was only when he saw me silently take out my oheck Ixjok and write a draft f tr the money that he began to grow profuse nnd almost iutelligible iu his language. He also pulled from the recesses of a hard, stiflf gieat-coat a packet of greasy parchments and threw them on the table witli a loud tliud. Tliey are not worth much,” ha said, growing crimson to the roots of his hair, but they are all I have got, and so brought them. I can go through the legal formalities of conveyancing with your solicitoTH if you will inatruct them to x>repare the necessary papers.” “ There is no need of anything further,” I answered, coldly. “ Oh, but there is, though. Suppose I should d!ti; you must have what L^ve, if there is anything,” remarked the man. I liked Mr. Jones still less than before after this sjieech. He siMke in such bluff, aoarse voice, aod was so loud and so biunptious that his pretending to take care of my interest only appeared to me a piece of gratuitoua impertinence. If the image of my mother and sister, almost tlie last time wa met togetlier, had i<ot started up before my imagination vith strange vindness, 1 should have eaid something rude. The fellow’s veiy hair was antipathetic to me. I t waa wiry, it was tousled, it was obstinate hair, going the wrong way all ovar his pate aud forehead. I felt a real sense of relief when he blundered out of mj( tranquil library, and left me to my pursuits. I was making notes for a naw edition of “ La Bochefoucatild's Maxims,” which interested mo very much just then, and I asked myself, with a wiy nnile, whether I should be much grieved if Il&. Jones had a fit of apoplexy before he could tumble his way to the street door. Still, however, my mother and sister seemed te look reproachfully at me, and I could not shake off a secret preaenti-ment that my conduct would appear to Alice as that of a churl. We have all some soft spot in our nature, and I held to my sister’s esteem not leaathan to her affection. Still a thousand ponnda was a round sum, and Mr. J<»ies lia<l got the money when he asked for ii. What more oould he want Ineverex-pected to aee it again, but in this part o( tbe busineaa I waa disappointed. He paid the money. Ittunkheerenwanted to pay iaterest, bnt H at m i retained to him iu a lawyor’a letter, wiikh moat have cost ma Ca. 8d. I lost aight of Ifr. Jonaa lor oMoy a day. Hahadgotoot«( m7 dUM,MdI no misgiving that he considered it convenient to forget he ever was in it. ’Tis the way of the world, according to many a proverb. There is no such thing aa gratitude. If you want to make an enemy of a man, put him under an obligation. I had fall leisure to ponder over these OThilnrating truths, for experience taught me they were of very general application. First the Turks, who had got ever ao mudi of my money, went unblush-ingly into bankruptcy. Then a philanthropic establishment, in which I had allowed myself to be mixed up, oame to signal grief, and I was the only responsible person among tiie directors. The others had been all ruined in a bank failure. I liked my reputation better than my money, and did what the share-baldec^ attofQfya a^liyed n i^ w a s |^ ^ An evening paper, which had first cwed me to account, printed a leader contrasting my conduct advantageously with that of a man who had carried off some money belonging to other x>eople, and settled in America. But I waa ruined. The little I had left dvrindled to nothing in tbe beginning of the land panic. Even my father’s house was sold by auction, and one foggy morning in Jj'ebruary I walked out of some temporary lodgings I had ♦aVcn in Bury street, iutending to »h1ta my name off my dubs. I could no longer pay tho subscriptions, and was wondering (Roomily how I should manage to live. I had received the usual education of an English gentleman, and oould do absolutely nothing. Those “ Notes on La Rochefoucauld ” had only brought me iu debt to my publisher, and besides I had neither, taste nor^talenta for literature. Few people have. I had just turned into S t James’s square in this disconsolate mood wheu I noticed a fat, awkward man with splay feet rolling down the street as though it belonged to him, and I was at once re-minilixi of that abominable bore, Jones. Before I oould avoid him, however, he stopped abruptly to tie his shoe, and we unavoidably carromed against each other. Ugh!” exclaimed my old debtor, trying td recover the breath which I had wellnigh knocked ont of him, and then he s e i ^ me by both hands, shaking them heartily. “ Who would have thouglit of seeing you,” he then remarked, as though my being in London was the moat marvel- OHS thing ho had ever known ^ t h e course of his life. “ I heard,” he reaomed ot^entially, still holding me Iqr both hands, “ that yoa had fallen among thieves. . Is there anything I can do for you? Say the A P s iflOM Pttritiea. A BmnniibacaB of the tebbikb aioux OF 1862. Matilda Boelter, a step-daughter of Michael Boelter, who lives in the town word, Mr. Crabbe; only say the word and it ia dene.” I t vaa with a feding of absc^te oonfi-dsBoa iit'iay views ot life, and with a depth of scorn I could not have put into lauguage, that I answered grimly, “ Oh, yes, lend me a thousand pouud.s.” I had hardly flung my mockiug words at him, when the man’s face was lit up with a smile so sunny aud genial that its homely features grew miraculouisly beau-tifuL Come along,” then said Mr. Jones, without further parley. Ransom’s is hard by, and my agenta paid in thirty thousand |x>unds yesterday for gold dust only. There will be the proceeds of my meat sales next week. You shall have it olL There is plenty more where that comes from. My squattings have been looking ap these three years; mines, woods, grass, com, w’harves, are all paying now. Thank Ood! Fm so glad to have met you. I don’t know what to do with myselt I would have called on you before, bnt I was told you had gone abroad, and I was afraid to make soboldas to write; though I should have done it if I had known I oould have been of use, sir.” I declare that although Mr. Jones is a large man and the houses of St. James’s square are larger, such a mist came before my eyes that I could not see either him or them. His manner was so boisterously cordial, yet so respectful aud delicate, it was so unlike anything I had ever read or heard of that it upset my composure. When I hastily answered his obstreperous generosity, by saying I only spoke ia est, aud had no need of his help, his countenance grew quite blank again, and all the glorious light that had burst over and illuminated it f^ e d away. He was pained and humiliated that I was obliged, in pity for his manifest concern, to accept a thousand pounds, which I returned to him next day, with a civil noto aud the usual compliments. I could uot think of touching the fellow’s money. I did not even dream that he was iu earnest, and oould never have slept in peace as anybody’s debtor. Besides, a few days subsequently I was offered the chairmanship of a railway which ran through the estate that once was mine. I t gave me fifteen hundred a year, and au inexpensive man can vegetate on th a t I never saw any more of Mr. Jones. When I thought of him, which waa but seldom, I rememl>eied him merdy a vulgar man, who was rude and clnmsy, but not unamusing, though I still waa at a loss to understand what my sister oould have found in such a creature to have recommended him to me. At last she herself gave me an explanation, by cablegram. I t waa very short, but oertainly to the purpose, and it ran thus : Mr. Jones has left his immense property to be equally divided between you and me. I t indodea your old estate, which he bought He says in his will that he made all he had by a thousand pounds you gave him when he was a beggar. He had neither kith nor kin.” So the vulgar man had died. And in the place whidi he once filled on earth, there was the fair and lovely form of gratitude.—Zomfon Iruth. of Holden, Qoodhneooonty, Minn., came to her death by the accidental disdhai^ freon .a gun. This painful accident recalls other tragic events in the history of the &mily to whieh she belonged. Previous to the Sioux massacre of 1862, the young lady’a mother and her step-father lived in one of the counties bordering on tha Minnesota river, she having a husband (who was a brother of her presen hiuband) and twodiildren, theyoungeat but a feir months old, and he having i wife and two young children. The IndiMs killed his wife, while he and hiaidujtUen escaped and saeceeded in'making their way fb Fort Bidgely*, and afterward went to S t PauL His brother was killed, but his sister-in-law and her two ehildren fled to the woods near her home, where she secreted herself, hoping to find a place of safety when the fiendish Sioux had completed their work, but to her dismay the savages went into camp near her hiding place: During the daytime she could see all their movements, as they rode about ou the prairies, and often passed near her in going through the woods, and at uight she could watch them in their dances and hear their horrid yells. Sometimes after they had gone to sleep she would%teal back in the darkness to her house and get a little food, as long as it lasted, but for the most part of nine long, weary, dreadful weeks, whose every moment must have been filled with a terror worse than deatli, sh» subsisted on the scanty supply of wild grapes, roots, leaves and the bark of trees that her limited range afforded. At length the Indians went away, the frost had come and destroyed her subsistence, her breast refused to yield nourishment, and her babe died of gradual starvation. Then she and the remaining child crawled to their old home to die. Some soldiers who were out burying the victims of the massacre found them and they were sent to S t Paul, or some other point, where her brother-in-law, wlio supposed her to have been killed, found her, and at length married her. They settled on East Prairie, where they have lived imtil the present time. , The young woman whose sad fate is here recorded was tha little three-year-old child whose escape from the hands of the bloody Sioux was so marvelous.

The oddest tMng about it, perhaps, is that^ i t -«•; not certain, or even likdy, that the person who is afflicted with color-blindness is aware of the defect. Color-blindness is au inability to dis-ting^ uish colors. Those who are wholly color-blind can see no more than the fonaa- of. thiags; but c p ^ of total absence of the power to percelve'colbr are very rare. In most jiersons w^ho are lacUng in this respect, the infirmity extends only to certain colors. One man cannot perceive a red color; another green; another blue, aud so on. The partial color-blindness is not uncommon. Examinations by cxi)ert8 seem to show that about one iu every twenty meu is defective in the perception of color; and it is asserted that the defect is not so common iu women as in meu. Probably not fifty readers of this pajier are couscious that they are colorblind. Yet, if oculists are correct, and four or five iu every hundred persons are detlcient in this respect, the defect assumes proportions that command attention, for the reason that there are many occupations in which a quick and accurate perception of colors is necessary. The lack of it may render success impossible. There are many ways of testing the eye to find out if it is color-blind. The best is, to put iu the hands of a person, worsted, of various colors, aud ask him to separate the pieces into red, blue, green and other colors; and then to shado them from light to dark. A man who is color-blind will usually make a mistake iu assorting the colors, in the first four or five pieces given him for examination. Another test is to see if a person can rend red letters printed on a black ground. A third is to cover a blue sheet printed with black letters, with thin wlute tissue paper. To the perfect vision tho letters will appear a yellowish brown. If they are black letters printed on a red sheet, they will appear green under the paper. Tho causes of color-blindness have been sought by scientific men, and very plausible theories have been formed with regard to them, which we have not space to give. The defect is incurable. A person who does not know colors can never be taught them, aud there is no operation or instrument that will remedy the defect FARM ASP OARDEt. To HAVE plenfy of the very best of fodder through the season, sow it regularly every two weeka until the middle of August Begin os early as practicable. Do NOT turn cows on the pasture until there is a full feed of grass. I t only spoils their appetites for dry feed, and is too watery to produce much milk. Besides, it hurts the stand of giass. Thb a v ^ g e cow drops in a year about 20,000 pounds of solid, and 8,000 pounds of liquid manure. The solid is slightly the more valuable. This is ten tons, and multiplied by the current price will tell you how much your cows are paying in this product; whether stalled or runiung in the pasture. EooNoiir in seed, and increased product in merchantable potatoes, lead ns to ca t alliobeta idanied, to pieoea oi one or two eyes; the advantage of tbis is now so well established that it is not worth while to here give reasons or arguments in its favor. Thk peach borer, if looked after in spring and fall, is not a serious euemy. lf_the lower part of the tnmk is protected with paper or a mound of earth, extending a foot up the trunk, it is safe. If left to itself the worm is liable to kill the tree in northern latitudes, though south of Ohio the growth is so vigorous that the long season allows it to grow faster Vian the worm can eat it, though tliey often weaken the trunks until the tree is easily blown down. Mr. W.A. WheeIiEB, Worcester, Mass., cites a remarkable illustration of the value of mulch. The surface under alternate rows of old apple trees on a dry, rocky hillside, was covered in July a foot deep with swale hay as far out as the limbs extended. The next season, “ the bearing year,” those thus favored were loaded with large fine fruit, and showed, he says in The American CuUivalor, “ a great growth of new wood and the leaves had a beautiful green and spring-like appearance,” while the unmulched rows were b a rr^ , though of the same varieties. At t h i s season of the year do not forget the poultry house. Remove all dirt and filth from every p a rt Tdce out all the old nests, and, where it can be done, the nest boies too. Now provide yourself with a sufficient quantity of petroleum, crude or refined, aud a good whitewash brush and apply it to the whole interior surface—^floor, walls, ceiling, nest boxes and perches. Rub, spray or smudge it iuto every crack and comer, aud on the bearings of the perches. When this has penetrated every point where a nit or louse could be deposited, apply a thorough coat of whitewash. Go ov6r the nest boxes ii^ihe same way, and put new neste of clean, soft hay or straw in them, and you need not fear your fowls will be troubled with lice for a while at any rate. Coops, too, that were used last year for yoang broods, ahoold be rimilariy treated before being bronght into leqoisitian for this season’s campaign. T h is is the season for transplanting as well as planting and sowing.

Some unknown but tre-mendoiu leak was the cause of tliis terrible catastrophe. The hold had already fifteen feet of water wheu it was discovered, aud no cause assignable or visible. The 28th of February was the fatal day on which the unlucky ship went down.

Nurserymen often recommend fiJl trans-plautiug, as it gives them both a fall and a spring market, bnt tbe observation of most farmers leads them to favor the budding month of April for this work. In Central New York formerly, the average cheese made per cow per annum was 300 pounds, giving a net profit of $15 a head. The record of a herd of cows in 1876 showed 635 pounds of cheese per cow, in Herkimer county, with a net profit of 831 per head, for a dairy of 85 cows. Another dairyman in the same county made 800 pounds of cheese per cow. The Gardener's Monthly approves of the whitewashing of stem and branches of fniit trees, as tending to keep them healthy and aiding them to get rid of the old bark. In a Box. The jauitor of the Lime Kiln Club announced that Fauntleroy Wahoo, the Alabama sage and orator, had arrived in the ante-room aud desired to make a Rj>eech before the club. The Committee on Reception brought him iu, and after he had been introduced he mounted the platform and began: “ Ladies and gem’len, I iz here befo you to-night—” Perhaps he noticed the absence of Indies at that point, for he stopped, grew embarrassed, and finally started off with: “ As we look back inter de dim past we see—we see—^we—^we----- .” No go. He stuck right there. He took a drink of water, moved to the other end of the platform, aud tried it again. By this time his knees were shaking and his chin quivering, and Sir Isaac Walpole gentiy escorted him back to the anteroom where he soon recovered sufficientiy to slip down stairs. When he was out of the room Brother Ctardner arose and said: "Oemlen, de bizness of makin’ speeches am one fing an’ de bizness of sawin’ wood am anoder. Make no mistake in what you do.

The former were mostly for ahort trips, while many of the latter ware for eonddendde distanoea. A B om ber of Bepreaentativea got aa mmxf aa 100 paaaea daring tha only region whose inhabitants are demoralized by the northeast wind. (Governor Rosas, of Buenos Ayres, who waa successful in subduing tha Indians of the pamx>as, never treated witb them wheu the wind blew from the northeast He foim<l from experience that during rach periods the savages were morose and indisposed to suteoit to reason or force. When, however, the wind came from the southwest they became reasonable, and -t^yro the QovenMar found- little difficulty inioaaldng ficyiotdbla.'aRngMM^'iiitk them. This Rosas was a remarkrihle man. Hie was a splendid horseman, and even the ggufshos, tl^g. modem representatives of tho centaurs^adiuitfe'd'tha^ ha excelled them in riding and throwing the lasso. Once, at a public celebration in the d ty of Buenos Ayres, he gave an exhibition of his skill Stationing a gaucho, with a lasso, at* a comer of the public square, Rosas rode at full speed down the street. Aa he entered the square the gaucho threw his lasso and caught Rosas’ horse by the fordeg. The animal fell headlong and broke its neck. But Rosas leaped from the saddle, alighted on his feetand walked off, raising his hat in acknowledgment of the cheeis of the people. The leader of the aristocratic party was Lavalle. Rosas shut him up in Buenos Ayres and then besieged the dty. The war was a shocking one, no quarter being given on either side. LavaQe’s supplies giving out, he determined to come to terms with Rosas. One day he rode out to thegauchos’ samp, under a flag of truce, and asked to see Gen. Rosas. As he was absent, La-valle accepted an invitation to enter the general’s tent, remarking that he had had bnt little rest for a long time, and would, if there was no objection, sleep imtil Rosas’ return. Stretching himself on the ground, ha fell adeep in a few minutes. When Rosas entered the camp he was informed that Lavalle was in his tent. To what good fortune am I indebted for this news ?” asked Rosas. “ He came under a flag of truce,” replied the officer, “ aud asked permission to repose until your return.” Do not allow him to be disturbed,” said Rosas. “Any one who can sleep in the tent of his most deadly enemy must be a brave man. Let hia fate be what it may, he shall have a peaceful dee|( to prepare for i t ” When Lavalle awoke he and Rosas had a conference. I t resulted in the termination of the dvil war, and both sides wd-oomed peace. « Biracd ia Hla Ow Bara. William Rolf, a well-to-do farmer, living in the village of Union, a suburb of Elizabeth, N. J ., was burned to death in his bam, together with four valuable horses and two or three milch cows. Rolf visited his bam for the purpose of earing for his animals aud fastening the doors for the night He carried, according to his usual custom, an old-fashioned lantern, the bottom of which had become partially insecure, owing to long use. He had been in the bam but a few minutes when his wife heard his eries, and running oat in her night dothea, dia-eemed the building to be in flames, bnt could only stand by and see her husband burned to death.

'O N L Y A SOLDIER."
Unarmed and nnattonded walks tlie Czar,
llirongh Hosoow's bnsy street one winter's day.
The crowd nnoomr u his fkce they aea—
•< God greet the Czar!" they lay.
Along his path there moved a fonenl,
Gray spectacle of poverty and woe.
A wretched aiedge, dragged by one weaty nan,
Slowly across tbe snow.
And on the sledge, Uown by the winter wind.
Lay a poor ooffin, very rode and bare.
And he trtio drew it bent before hia kwd.
With doll and snllan air.
Tlie Emperor stopped andbedconedtotbeman ;
“ Who is t tfaon beaiesttotfae grave?” heaaid.
» Only a soldier, sire!“ the shoti reply,
“ Only a soldier, dead.”
<• Only a Kddier!” musing, said the Czar;
“ Q^y a KoMian, who was poor and brave.
Move on. I follow. Sndi a one goea not
Unhonoted to his grave.” ^
He bent his head, and silent raised bis eap;
The Czsr of all the Sosaias, pacing slow.
Following the cofllii, aa again it wSti^
Slowly across the snow.
The passers o f the street, all wondering,
Looked on that sight, then followed silently;
Peasant and prince, and artjuan and derk.
All in one company.
StiU, as they wont the crowd grew ever more,
Till tboosands stood around the friendless
Led by that princdy heart, wbo, royal, true.
Honored the poor and brave.
