Feeding Cattle. A oorreepondent of the Rural Bun gives hil experience in feeding cattle as fol lows: "If they arc sonictinics stttlled and at others starved, they will soon go through the process of "eating off their heads." In feeding meal, I always want it ground fine, as my experience is that three bushels of line meal Is equal to four ground coarse, though an over feed of tine meal will sour worse than the coarse; this tho feeder must guard against. Al ways give each one a box to himself, so you know ho eats what you feed him, and always accustom them to being tied up from calves; if this is not convenient when you begin to feed, tie them up at night and let them run loose in the lot of a day. Keep them well bedded, and never allow a hog in their stalls, or you will lose much of the manure they make, anil that with them is a big item. When your stalls begin to get too hot to bo healthy, clean out and haul direct to where you want the manure. In commencing to feed, if you intend ...

Why is an angry man like a camel? Because he has his back up. HOWEVER hard the times nre, lazy people are always sure of their loaf. * Why is a spider a good correspondent?

The Independent. TIU'KSUAY, FEHHI AKV 14, ISTf. THE EASTERN WAR. The Ptimo Tiirlrith war is about at an end, ami the war is very likely to be turned another way; England and Austria against Russia and Turkey. The English have been threatening for a week to send their ironclad vessels of war up the straits to Constantinople in spite of the protests of both Turkey and Russia, which two powers are now ne gotiating- a peace, regardlessalikeof the beligereut attitude of England. The latest advices represent the English cabinet as having given positive orders to take the fleet to Constantinople, even if it has to tight its way, which action is equivalent to a declaration of war by England. Russia gave notice a short time since that if the fleet was ordered into the straits the Russian army would occupy and hold Constantinople; and it is reported that quarters for the Russian soldiers have already been selected in the city, and the troops are now taking possession of Constantinople.

Destiny. lt\" LRTITIA r. STIMSON. We parted! and the hand of fate. With iron will and stern decree. Still held our destinies apart, While sailing o'er life's troubled sea. We drifted on through weary years, Through days of gloom and summer shine, And broken ties aud filling tears Have been thy 10l as well as mine. And bygone mem'rv -lumbered deep. Buried, rnethought, 'netith l.ethe's stream; The future but a dreary waste— The past a brief but happy dream. In fortune's smile, or darker frown, Fond mein'ry struggled to be free, But fetters held the captive down— The mighty power of Destiny. And now "thou'rt near and yet so far," Sweet friendship's tie may bind us yet; The past is but a troubled dream That each must struggle to forget. The Twelve O'clock Man. Every day, for many years, just before noon, a man used to come into the space before the Brooklyn City Hall, and stand looking up at the clock, feith the air of one who had ma le an appointment to meet s 'me oue there at that hou...

Winter Titles. I kkom TliK (.ki;m ax.' The earth doth sleep. With garment white, Hath winter folded her about. She Is not dead, she slumbering waits, Till spring shall come and call her out. As fearlessly the little child Lies folded to its mother's breast, So sll the sweet (lower children sleep, Rocked safely to their winter rest. They dream of mildly blow ing airs Of sunshine and the crystal dew, Elate willi winged sweets they see Green woods again and meadow new. They list to what the bird lings sing. To wh.it the wave and brooklet say, They prattle with the butterfly. The wild bee greeteth them, "Good-day." And stretching up, they fain would see The splendor shining far and near; Then comes the fair dream to an end, Kor lo! the spring herself is here. —IVtMSisitd by Irene Connell. Loaning a Lover.

A Doctor in Court. A.joke, well told, is never inopportune, and tor th«t reason we cannot withhold from publlcetion a story that is going the rounds oi the press, concerning the experience of a Georgia doctor in a court of justice demanding payment for his professional services. The case is stated about as follows: A doctor named Royston had sued Peter Bennett for bis bill, long overdue, for attending the wife of the latter. Alexander 11. Stephens was on the Ben nett side, and Robert Toombs, then Sen ator of the United States, was for Dr. Royston. The doctor proved his num ber of visits, their valt:e according to local custom, and his own authority to do medical practice. Mr. Stephens told his client that the physician had made out his case, and as there was nothing wherewith to rebut or otfselt tho claim, the only thing left to do was to pay it. "No," said Peter, "I hired you to speak to my case, and now speak." Mr. Stephens told him there was noth ing to say jhe had looked on to s...

The Independent. THURSDAY, FEBRUARY St, 1878. THK ARMY. At last the military committee in the House of Representative* have reached a conclusion on the proposed reduction of the United States army, a subject that has caused a vast am mount of discussion. The committee has pronounced against any reduction whatever and will so recommend to the House, a very wise and sensible con clusion. Because Southern members and ultra Bourbons have been the leaders in this movement of reduction, much ohliquy has been heaped upon them, and the Southerners have stood in for most of the abuse, This ele ment in a gnat measure controls the legislation of Congress, ami to them must he given the credit at last, for this evidence of returning reason and exhibition of good sinse. If the nom ocracy Aero to always act thus on all important questions before the people, they would soon have undisputed con trol of public utt'airs, but where they do one good piece of legislation they com mit a dozen serious blun...
