Heathful Food.

Origin of "He's a Brick. Plutarch, in liis life of Agesilans, Kiug of Sparta, gives us the o.i.jin of the quaint and familiar saying. O.'i a certain occasion an ambassador from Epirus, on a diplomatic mission, was shown by the king over his capital. The ambassador knew of the monarch's fame—knew that though only nominally king )f Sparta, he was ruler of Greece —and he looked to see massive walls rearing aleft their embattled towers for the defense of the town; bat found nothing of the kind. He marveled much at this end spoke of it to the king. "Sire," he said, "I have visited most of the principal towns, and 1 find no walls reared for defense.— Why is this?" "Indeed, Sir Ambassador," replied Agesilans, "thou canst not have looked carefully. Come with me to-morrow morning and I will show you the walls of Sparta." Accordingly, on the following morning, the king led his guest out upon the plain where his army was drawn up in full battle array, and o pointing proudly to the serried host...

Politeness. A group ol' boys were on a street corner discussing their respective chances ofjsnccess in answering an advertisement for an errand-boy in a wholesale dry-goods house near by. Their names and .addresses had already been registered, aud they were s«nt off with thft remark that the "best boy would be sent for when wanted." While they thus stood talking an old man, with hair white as snow, bowed back and trembling bauds, came slowly and unsteadily down the stieet, th« only support to his feeble limbs being his stout cane.— Wheu a short distance from the boys the cane dropped from his hand and rolled into the glitter. "Look there, Billy," said one of the boys, "the old man's swamped." At this all the boys but one broke out into a loud, uncouth laugh. "lie's shivering as if the winter wind was blowing." joked another.

There are many phases to the subject, and these numerous conditions must bo thoroughly understood. If the tanner would realize the most from his feed; quantity of food, warmth and quiet of stables and many oth er important items must be taken into consideration in fattening stock. As in many other departments of farm labor, there is a great lacking here ofsj stematio work. Some are ignorant as to the best methods, while others are careless of their real interests, and have no regularity in their work. Every farmer seems to have his own way, and it is too often chosen with regard to the convenience of feeding rather than economy. Ten chances to one he never knows whether he has gained or lost on the animal he has sold to the butcher.
