THE IIOYIE CIRCLE. BY NEWELL LOVEJOY. Some time in the earthly hereafter, An angel will whisper to ume And say with a face full of pity, ' Thy loved one is passing from thee. " The new year--aye, and sooner May tind me in life alone; In my bosom the blossom of sorrow, On my lips at grief-laden moan. I am nerving myself for the hour When God's message shall sound in my ear; I am praying for strength from my Maker To pass through the tiial severe. But alas, when the Heavenly Sower Shall utter the words that bring woe, Be it sooner or later, I shall be Unready to hear them, I know. Ah! 'twill prove to have been no fancy, The throbbings that then stir my heart; The sobbings--the terrible sobbings That ever of grief are a part. But as by her couch I sit holding The hand growing icy the while; My eyes resting on the dear feature-, Lit up with so saintly a smile; I shall know, after all, through the darkness That leads to the beautiful day, That never shall end, since immortal, Miy mother ...

Rocky IoantaiJ Hlsbanllmaln R. N. SUTHIERLIN, Editor. THURSDAY, MARCH 30, 1876. WE are glad to see such a lively" iterest being taken in thoroughbred stock:. Our farmers are beginning to learn that it pays to produce the best. Those who have large herds and keep continually in advance of civilization, have become very successful with common natives and half-breeds, and it-has been claimed ,by many that this class of stoek are better,adapted to this mode than fihr grades. Aso o ti, corectness of their theory we will not attemtpt to say, but it is notliceable that many of our largest stock groWers are supplying :themselv·es with irp proved breeds, while among those who live in the thickly settled valleys where range is getting to be an objection, and where farm ers feel the necessity of turning it to the best possible account,' thoroughbi.tas 'are in de mand.

STOCK RAISING. HOiESE4TABLE FLOORS. J. Wilkinson, in the Germantown (Pa.) Telegraph says: I notice in a late issue a brief article un der the above heading. My well-protracted experience as a rural architect has convinced me you are correct in condemning clay floors for horses. They are cold, filthy, un comfortable and unwholesome; in short, clay is the worst material for stable-floors that 1 have tested. I have given the subject much thought and have experimented with a great many varieties of materials and forms of construction for floors. Bome years ago I hit upon the plan of making the floors level "fore and aft," but gave them a slope from each side to the Center of one inch to two feet six inches, the half of the width of stall that I prefer to one of greater or lesser width. I lay the length way of the plank across the stall and cut them in the center, and in laying them leave an opening between the ends of the plank in the center of the stall of a scant quarter of an inch, t...

THE HOME CIRCLE, PICTURES TWAIN. BY ELEANOR BURR. She leaneth from her window high, With redder heart than a red, red rose, And a bosom of drifted snow; And sayeth with a long, long sigh: The seasons come; again they go; And I,-poor 1! am but a moth That fluttering 'gainst each breath that blows From East or West, or North or South, Wist not my lot: He, only knows. Over her folded arms she gazed, Enwrapped of a sunset c1'-" i With dre:hny eyes, and drooping lash, And resting ',hcck upon the sash, Harkening to nature's anthem To its tuneful rise and swell Lists she with ears like the listening shell That harkens the soundmng sea: That weird and and ancieut minstrelsy. Down about the. maidenst' wain The twilight draweth apace, And dusky grows each window pane; But dimly seen each lovely face! And I wonder if by other sashes Girls are sitting, dreaming out the day; And if other drooping lashes Are shading eyes both blue and gray. - liseisern Rural MOODY AND SANKEY IN NEW YORK. One of t...

IINES AND MINING. CURIOSITIES OF PRECIOUS METALS. The prices of many of the dearest may be considered as " fancy prices, " and actually a whole pound of some of the metals named could hardly be obtained at even the extrav agant figures annexed. In the following table the San Francisco Chronicle takes the prices of the rarer metals from Tromms dorffs and Schuchard's price list. An inspection of the tables shows that the prices of the metalls bear no relation to the rarity of the bodiesuwhence they may be de rived, for calcium; the third in the list, is one of the most abundant elements. Even that excessively sparingly distributed metal, indium, the most recently discovered ele ment, stands tenth in the list, below stranti um. The metals of alk4lies seem to occupy a remarkably low place in the table. The figures indicate the gold value per lb. avoir dupois: Metal. Value. per lb.

R. N. SUTHERLIN, Editor. TIIURSDAY, APRIL 6, 1876. FARMERS will bear in mind that seed time approaches again. Another winter has gone by. The sun is nearer to the earth, and soon the earth will teem with vegetation. We know many of the farmers feel discouraged. For two successive years they have seeded their lands, with bright hopes have seen it put forth from the ground only to be dwarfed or destroyed, and they have failed to realize to any extent from their labor. Yet they have raised a aufficiency to-meet the demand. We have reason to hope that the misfortunes will not laat always. We must sow or else we can not reap. The 'hoppers will be bad enough in every valley, and in some places, if we may judge from present appearances, will be very numerous. Hence, the greater ef fort required on the part of the farmers. Every preparation should be made for their destruction. Preparations should be-made to run large heads of water around grain fields in order to prevent the myriads of you...

STOCK RAISING. S.ORTHORN BREEDING. She following concluding remarks of Judge Jones in his address delivered before the American Shorthorn convention, recent ly held in Toronto, will be of interest to our shorthorn breeders a I beg the indulgence of the convention for a moment longer, to add a word or two in reference to the public registry of pedi grees, because I conceive it to be so inti mately connected with the main point I have attempted to urge in these observa tions, to-wit: The practical utility of our vocation as breeders of shorthorn cattle. As we have seed,, a succession of good an cestors insures excellence in our stock, and the account of such succession is furnished by the pedigree. The written pedigree and its registry, though of recent origin, have been found very important aids in the imn provement of live.stock. The idea that the publisher of such register had the right to determine what was and what was not thor oughbrcd, is quite modern ; and it is amnaz ing that...

THE IHOME CIRCLE. MY SCHOOL DAYS. JOHN G. WHITTIEIR. Still sits the school-house by the road, A ragged beggar sunning; Around it still the sumach grows, And blackberry vines are running. Within the master's desk is seen, Deep scarred by raps ollicial; The warping floor, the battered seats, The jack knife's carved initial. The charcoal frescoes on its walls; Its door's worn sill betraying The feet, that creeping slow to school, Went storming out to playing. Long years ago a winter's sun Shone over all at settingi Lit up its western \window panes, And low eave's icy fretting. It touched the tangled golden curls, And bro va eyes full o' grieving, Of one who still her tceps delayed When all the school were leaving. For near her stood the little boy IHer chilid'i favor singled, Ilis cap was l:ule I down on his face, Where pride and shamne were mingled.

On the night of the 29th ult., a fire origi nated in the house of Leopold Thompson, 31 Annette street, 3d District, which was totally destroyed. The flame then extended to an adjoining house at tile 'corner of An nette and Morales streets, and owbng to the total absence of water, and a high northern wind blowing, the fire spread with great ra pidity. Half the block bounded by Annette, Morales, Urqtuhart and Anthony streets, comprising about fifteen small buildings, were consumed. The loss is roughly esti mated at $20,000.

THE POULTRY YARD. DARK BRAHMA FOWLS. The time has now arrived when fowls ought to be mated for the next sea son. In selecting breeding stock, great care should be taken to procure fine cock rels, or cocks, if not already in the breeder's yards. Select the required number of hens, as uniform in color as possible, with fine heads, short and broad, bodies long and deep, carried out well behind the legs, breasts finely rounded, and legs short and stout. Should hens be considered too short bodied, they only require to be mated with a long bodied cock to prevent that objection in the offspring. Length of body is an im portant requsite in breeding, if fowls of good weight are desired. If breeding-hens have very long bodies, thin or flat in form, with long legs, they should be mated with a male bird that is short, very deep and broad, having short, stout legs. These are the main points to be observed in breeding to insure finely proportioned progeny. Having given you some hints upon the se ...
