A 'LIFE BLIGHTED. (BT "YV. S. H., PETERSBURG. Continued from No. 8. CUAPTEE III. Tile neighborhood was early . astir that bright July morning. Arthur Menz had conducted himself so as to he a model of everything proper and correct in his conduct. 80 much so indeed that not even his attention to Janet excited the scandal so easily aroused. And now that Mrs Lappington had been persuaded to cast aside the habiliments and appearance of care, and commence in a new sphere of life there were plenty of willing, eager bands and voices to help and congratulate. The ceremony was to take place at an early hour, but long before the time arrived the bells of the village church were pealing forth" their strains of joy and gladness, and yet, that joy was not echoed in the heart of the bride. She had never, ceased to hope that Richard would return, and now .to marry a*iain seemed to be crushing that hope for ever. It was not - as though " her' heart went L wholly-with her hand.

THE MARKS ON A COW'S HORN. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 14 October 1887
THE MARKS OK A COW'S HORN. The marks upon the h'orns of a cow indicate her age and not, as some mis guided person would have us believe, the number of ealves she may have had. As these marks or rings are the same on the horns of an ox or bull 3s upon those of a cow it cannot be the calves'that cause them. ' At two years old a wrinkle may be found forming at the base of the horn,' and as the horn grows next year this wrinke is easily :seen. :' This t&drks three years' growth. At five years a second wrinkle appears. After that one appears every year until at the .gge.-pf -eleven or -twelve,.^ the wrinkles are smallerand closer and less conspicuous, and some of the earliest will have been worn away. The horns are no guide to age after thirteen years, nor are ,th6 V teeth, as the condition of these depend " upon the amount of pasturing done^-the goodness or 'the badness of the pasture and the sandy or clayey character of the soil, - .. . i .

SKILFUL CULTIVATION. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 14 October 1887
SKILFUL. CULTIVATION. Skilful cultivation should be the aim of every one who raises plants or -crops. To make gardening and . - fanning profitable, it is necessary to have dome thing in return for every stroke that is made, and for eveiy shilling invested. Even when 9nly a few house plants are cared for, we expect to see growth and bloom ill repay, for our care; if not, our interest in them would soon be lost. We devote an acre of land to a certain crop; it costs for a. season the interest, for. a year on the investment made for it, beside the expense of preparation, man uring, cultivating* harvesting, market ing, etc. Our .crop is but half what it might be, or what good cultivation has proved might be obtained. The time and expenseof preparation, of sowing'and of cultivation, have been as much as for a full crop,- and the cost of harvesting and other expenses but little less; but" a part of the land was too wet, and the planting could not be done early, as it should have been, and ...
