To Gardeners : It will soon be time
for gardening. Where to get your seed
may bo of good advice to a few garden
ers in every district. Lawyer Parrish
of Ilillsboro has shown us sixteen pack
ages of seeds of all kinds thai he has
just received from Commissioner Watts
of the Agricultural Bureau in Washing
ton city. He wrote on to him and re
ceived by mail, bags of corn and peas
and beans, and papers f onion seed,
beets, parsnips, and vegetables of every
description. Among them the "Gen.
Grant tomato." The. commissioner
wrote a very polite letter and requested
to be informed of the result of the
planting. That was all he charged.
M. Houzeau says the mule is suppos
ed to be able to count as far as five at
least, and this is considered to be estab
lished by the following observation :
There is a short branch line of omni
buses in New Orleans, where each mule
makes the journey five times success
ively before being changed. The vet
erinary surgeon of these animals called
attention to the fact that at the end of
each of tho first four journeys they are
silent, but as they approach tho end of
the fifth they neigh. But this is not
satisfactory. The end of the fifth trip
may bo marked by preparations for
feeding the animals, which they hear or
smell at a distance, and these may have
produced responsive neighs. Scribner's
Read about the good cow: Perfect
Number and condition of Teats. If one
teat is wanting, about a fourth less milk
will be the result. A cow's udder is
not, as some suppose, a barrel with four
taps, but is divided into four different
compartments, called " milk glands,"
each of which has its own tap or teat.
It is not only important that the full
number of teats be present and in work

be well placed, not crowded together,

the following in the Chicago Post : Just
at the conclusion of a recent circus per

clown stepped forward and informed
the vast assembly that they had taken
in about 600 that day more money, he
ventured to say, than any minister of
the Gospel in that county would receive
for a j-ear's service. He then plainly
tjld them that a large portion of the
audienc were church members, who
would plead their poverty when asked
for nioney to support the Gospol, and
severely exposed their inconsistency.

who acts like this : While the bill giving
pensions to soldiers of tho war of 1812,
who resided in t4e rebellious States
during the late civil war, was being
considered in the House this afternoon,
Gen. Butler made a brief but eloquent
speech in advocacy of the measure. He
said these old veterans should have their
dues, even if during the rebellion they
were led by circumstances to sympa
thize with treason. They had won the
right to be wrong once in their lives,
and the government should deal gener
ously with them. He ended by hoping
that the time was near when the New
Orleans of 1S12 would be remembered
and the New Orleans of 1SG2 forgotten.
He was loudly applauded several times
by the members who gathered around
him, and the Speaker made no attempt
to suppress tho demonstration.

Read this : John Wilson is a brakeman
on a Minnesota railway. Theother day
ho heard of a train snowed in seven
miles distant, and, not being on duty,
procured a large quantity of crackers
and cheese, enveloped himself in a cloak
with a hood, and with the wind blowing
a ga!o and the thermometer twenty
seven degrees below zero, started out a
foot to relieve the hungry passengers.
Although ho felt his face and ears freez
ing, he trudged on until he reached the
train almost exhausted and unable to
speak distinctly. The grateful passen
gers thawed him out as well as they
were able, and one of them, John Law

some ladies under his care, took from
his own neck a massive gold chain, and
putting it around Wilson's neck, re
marked : " It's a pretty good man that
has worn that chain, but I've found a
better, and lis shall have it."

hitherto inert now recovered its self
possession, aud took hold of the mon

other, with a piercing cry, rushed to the
roof of the building, clinging to a cord.
The crab continued to maintain its
hold, the monkey frantically endeavor

struggle, he suspended himself to a bar

poor animal became motionless. He

in a suicide. He let go the bar to which
he had been suspended, and falling

nose still in the claws of his persecutor."
