Extermnlating Weeds. But few fields are exempt from all kinds of weeds, to say nothing of the coa:rse and inferior grasses that occupy the place of the better herbage. Thus not only is the quantity of tae feed less ened, and greatly, but the quality is hurt, the great variety of weeds impart ing their taint to the milk; this is worse with hay than with pasture, as the objec tionable flavor is disseminated through it when in bulk. What are we to do to get rid of the weeds? A complete eradication is per haps impossible, as the germs are in the soil, where they often remain un harmed, for many years, till some fa voring condition of the season brings them forth, not all being influenced alike, some requiring warm dry weather to start them, others appearing under a lower temperature, but the greater part responding to heat and moisture com bined. Thus weeds will appear what ever the season or weather, often sur prising the farmer by their novel and varying character. It is.not, therefor...

THE CHRONICLE. COLFAX, - - - LOUISIANA. SLUMBER SONG. In the winged cradle of sleep I lay My darling gently down: Kissedd an cloned are his eyes of gray, Under his cuis' bright crown. Where, oh where, will he fly and float, In the winged cradle of sloop? Whom will he meet in the world's remote, While he slumbers soft and deep? Warm and sweet as a white blush-rose, His small hand Iles In mine, Bunt I can not follow him where he goes, And he gives no word nor slgn. Keep him safe, ye Heavenly powers, In dream-land vast and dim! Let no ill, through the night's long hours, Come nigh to trouble him. Give him back. when the dawn shall break, With his matchless baby charms. With his love and his beauty a!l awake, Into my happy arns! -- 'rlla Thluxtrr, in St. Nichdols. SOME SELLS.

"Dea't Tell Wether.' Not long since we passed two little girls, perhaps eight or nine years old. Iheir arms were thrown around each other in a simple, loving, unaffected manner that quite enchanted us. But the first words we heard them utter dis pelled the charm and left a very painful impression. SI'll tell you something that I am going to do, May, if you will promise not to tell mother a word about it." If at that early age boys or girls be gin to have secrete from their parents, especially from the mother, it does not require a prophet's skill to form a tol erably correct judgment of what the character will be, and the results springing from such tendencies when they arrive at mature age. A disposi tion to deceive is bad enough. but when a little child arranges to conceal her ac tions from her mother the outlook is sad indeed. Whatever may be taught or believed about natural depravity it would be very dillicult to imagine that a little child naturally inclines to conceal its acti...

Nlamumer mnnelry. The latest midsummer styles in hats are simply immense!-that is the only word that will give any adequate idea of the size to which they have attained. Imagine hats with conical crowns from seven to nine inches in height, straight brims from seven to eight and, in some of the more ultra, ten inches in width! and these not intended for sun hats, but for carriage wear and to be worn with dressy costumes. The most pronounced of these styles is very apropriatelv known as the ' Obelisk.' and is in fact an almost ex act reproduction of the hat usually seen on the pictures of "Mother Goose," of nursery fame, but with a more exagger. ated brim. This design comes in coarse straws-dark-red, blue, green, old gold, black and white-and is always trimmed with ostrich feathers, some. times long plumes, or again a profusion of tips, a lovely cardinal-colored rough and-ready in this shape being trimmed with ten tips, shaded from cardinal to light red, placed closely around the cro...

Ierniag Casss-Their Useles Co and Worry. It appears that our present mourming customs impose upon usa great amount of cost and worry, at an especially in opportune period. And from this the inquirer proceeds to ask what is the reason why the unwelcome expese sad bother are inourred? why aliHtio of mind more than that of the body should be proclaimed by attire? why It should be more important to associate a par ticular color with grief than with rheu matism. biliousness influenza or any other illness? Natures, of course, dif fer widely, and there are those who (probably in consequence of having been accustomed from their earliest years to regard black as the emblem of death and sadness), find some amount of relief and comfort in wearing mourn iný when a friend dies, and feel a satis faction in marking the especial event with especial garments. But all are not of this way of thinking, and there are many whose inclinastons are just the reverse. The sort of self-consaous ness and stran...

[We have reoelved perml ssion, says the Lon dion Speatfor, to print the following beautiful lines by the late Dean of Wostminster, which can randy, we think, be read without, to some extent, alleviating the pain which attends so great a loss:) "TiU Death us part." So speaks the heart, When each to each repeats the words of doom; Thro' bleasing and thro' curse, For better and for worse, We will be one, till that dread hour shall come. Life, with its myriad grasp, Our yearning souls shall clasp, By ceaseless love, and still expectant wonder; In bonds that shall enure, Indissolubly sure, Till God in death shall part our paths asunder. Till death us Join. O, voice yet more divine! That to the broken heart breathes hope sub lime: Thro' lonely hours And shattered powers We still are one, despite of change and time. Death with his healing hand Shall once more knit the band Which needs but that one link ...

It as considered, but not talked oL It is the basin of everymam's future, good or bad. Yet nobody, oddly o discusses It ezeept the young. oe, who know nothing of it but by hearsay. Their contemplations and arguments upon it are interminable. There are fewer early marriages in this country now thalm n any previous generation. One reason tot this is that women are more self-supportinag now, and lee likely to marry young and without due consmideratio for a main tenance. The other is that the style of living in each class is so much more costly than it was fatty years ago that young men will not venture to marry on as small incomes.
