Sam and Joe. BY SAIXIK A. UKOCK. My heart is strangely bad to-night; The past hangs o'er me like a dream; And ax a bark with fresh trimmed sails, My thoughts arc gliding down the stream. Ah, those were jocund days, Iny friend, The old, old days of long ago, Though sometimes shadowed by a cloud, When you were "Sam," and I was "Joe." I sec our homesteads side by side Gleam white amid the leafy shade; I hear the brawling of the brook, I smell the perfumes through the glade; I feel the dear ones all around And some have crossed death's stream, you know, But sorrow lightly touched our hearts, For you were ' 'Sam, ' ' and I was ' 'Joe. Our tutor's form appears again His clear, calm eyes, his frosty hair; His checks all seemed like withered fruit; His lips on which a smile was rare. Those truthful lips but time, to him, Was cruel in its ebb and flow; Yet little recked we of his griefs, For you were ' 'Sam, ' ' and I was ' 'Joe. ; Of discipline we ill approved, And ill approved of Latin ver...

Fry to a nice brown ; beat 3 eggs with 3 teaspoonfuls of flour, dfo each slice in the batter, and fry afpiri, until the batter is cooked. This is very nice. Steamki Apples.

The true way to cook a beet is to bake, not boi! it. Thus treated, and sliced either in vinegar or butter, it is exceedingly palatabfe and nutritious.

THE FAIR PLAY. SSITII WATI1EN. PbMIiAmb. STE. GENEVIEVE, MISSOURI. Skeep Raising on the Pacific Coast. One of the most profitable branches of husbandry carried on in California is the keeping of sheep. They are kept upon farms where cultivated erops are produced, and upon ranches and Gov ernment lands, where it is the only in dustry. Sheep raising is produced here under different conditions from those of the East. The barns, sheep sheds, racks and fodder, that with us are in dispensable and so costly, are here en tirely useless. The climate is so mild that sheep thrive without any shelter the year round. They find enough to eat in the pastures even in winter, and continue to grow and make wool throughout the year. It is estimated that a sheep born and bred here is at two years old as heavy as one at three years born and bred in the Atlantic States. The ewes are much more pro lific. The increase of a well managed flock of sheep'is seldom less than 80 per cent., or more than 110 per c...

FlopI was one of a colony of Ameri cans wlm left the pine forests of Maine, in the United States, some ten or a dozen years ago, to settle in the Holy Land, to there be ready to greet the blessed Redeemer at His sccondcoming. But dissensions, bitter and irreconcila ble, arose among them in Jafl'a ; they were looked upon with hate and suspi cion by Jews, Arabs, and Mahommc dans; their crops were stolen as fast as they ripened, and many of the men fall ing out with work took to drink. They lost their lands, bordering the plains of ftliaron, near Jafl'a, by a fine point of Turkish law, and through the combined effects of death, ill luck, and lic...
