Short Talks Willi Firnitri on Farm Topics. nAR VESTING OAT.s. The dry spring has made, oats very low, and difficult to cradle and save. The recent rains may develop good heads, and these, being the most important part, it ia very desirable to seenre them. Where the land is smooth and free from trash, the oats may be mowed like grass, raked np with hors rake and cared like hay, withent being tied in bandies. This is, in deed, a very excellent plan. Con sidering the decrease in cot of harvesting, the mowing machine and horse rake taking the place oi ci ftdler and binder, we are rather Inclined to think it is the best mode of harvesting oats, eyea when tall enough for the cradler. If the weather is good they will enre qaickly, and do not run the risk ot moulding under the band. Cut one day, they can be honied the next, and that is a very great advantage. Bat where trash U in the way, or one does not own a mower, low oats can be saved very satisfacto rily with what is sometimes called the 15 fingered cradle. At first made with wire but now much im proved with wooden fingers, they do excellent work. We are now having some oats, scarcely u foot high, cut with these cradles, and in a motit satisfactory manner. Two conditions shonld be observed cut before fully ripe, and keep blade very sharp, that the cradler may make his cut without a lunge. A lunge will scatter and throw off the short heads. Catting before dead ripe makes better forage, and quite as good grain for feed, if not quite so good for seed. The straw is too short to tie in bandies, to do so would be too troublesome and much would be lost. The hand fnlls are simply gathered np as in tieing and loaded at once in a wagon. It behooves the farmer to save his oats, and whenever he can, to save labor too. The change from slave to free labor has im posed new conditions on us and we must adapt ourselves to them. Machinery must take the place of moor on rne larm, as wen as in tne shop. Aside from the saviDg of oats that are low and thin, it is better to cut them just as they begin fairly to turn. The plant has then reached its maximum development. It will gain nothing from soil or air by remaining uncut longer, and the straw will make decidedly better forage when cut at that stage. Such oats, well cured and fed in the sheaf, supplemented by a little corn, is unsurpassed horse-feed. But they should be fed sparingly j when first harvested. They then possess a laxative power, and in I dace excessive perspiration. A couple of months' caring will re I move these objectionable qualities. What has been said about the j harvesting of oats applies equally j to that of wheat. It may be cat ' w ith mower and gathered with rake. In this shape it is not quite so convenient to thresh, but it can be run through thresher, as every , uue miu s, irom caving seen ine loose wheat from broken bundles threshed. On a cotton faxm, har vesciDg grain comes in at a very busy time, and it is quite a disturb ing affair. These quick expeditious methods may afford some relief. They are certainly worthy of atten tion and examination. W. L. .!., in Atlanta Constitution. A Real Compliment. The ready wit of a true-born Irishman, however humble, is ex. cetdedonlyby his gallantry. A few days since we observed a case in point. Asudden gust ot wind took a parasol' from the hand of its owner, and before one had a chance to recollect whether it would be etiquette to catch the parasol of a lady to whom he had never been in trodced. a lively son of Erin drop Ied his hod of bricks, caught the parasol in the midst of its gyra tions, and presented it ttfthe loser, with a low bow. "Faith, 'rnadam." said he, as he did so, "If you were j as strong as yoa are handsome, it; wouldn't have got away from yon." Which shall I thank you for: first the service or. the comnli- nrsi me sen ment?" asked the lady, smilingly.

The people were u hispering: "The gods are threatening us with another eruption, withmoie earthquakes, and with something perhaps more terrible than befoie," lhey said solemnly, "and there is I but oue way to appease them. We I all know w hat they want, but tho M1 in vain.' ! N) hat the Lr v i ( 1 s wanted, these people of Honolulu belu-M-d was the saeuliee the uluntary sacri fice, ol one of the roal lamih. Never would those muttering be at rest never would the danger cease to threaten, until the gift of, a royal life had been made. Once, centuries beitu e, an old king had' offered himself tor h is people. J They adored his luemor . .Iway.i. j Later a prince, who was already , very ill, gave up the remnant ol ) his life to satisfy the angry gods. But now ah! there were none who would do it: none. The royal peij souages had gone to keep tliemj selves sale, if possible, at a long distance from Honolulu, under the protection of some Kuropean friends: and what the gods chose must happen. Tlwy offered them everything else they could think of, but the creatures were ruthless. Their stone faces, with the crooked eyes and noses, and straight cut. cruel mouths, glared, two toward the ocean, two toward the land, but never noticed the fruits, or the young arMtnals, or the jewels heap ed--at their feet. So the givers took them back, and waited Toe royalty to come home and be killed for the sake of its people. Itoyahy remained absent; the gods grumbled. Perhaps they felt that these people would have been only too glad to offer them what they asked for. and gave time, as generous creditois do when they feel that their debtors would pay il they cpuld. Still, patience docs not endure forever in gods made of stone, with cruel months and almond eyes and clenched fists doubled on their breasts. Heathern gods are sure to have what they want at last, or to deal out vengeance. The muttenugs giew: the earth shook a little, and the sea had be neath its roar a rumble, and its waves beat high upon the shore. The sky, too, was lurid, as though distant worlds were burning. Per haps they were, who knows? And there were many who eo.dd not riy. or who had no hope of escap ing from the wrath of gods so angry as these growlers seemed to le. A crowd gathered without the house a crowd of men, women and children, of old people and young, all waiting lor that which the gods would send, and all as fond of life as you or I would be, and more afraid of death, especial ly under such evil circumstances. They besought the gods as earnest ly as we pray to our God in time of peril, and still the tin eats grew fiercer. But now ailow n the lo.tdway came a iignre that of a young woman a dark and graceful beauty in the full flush of eai ly womanhood. Her dress was that of one who had means sufficient. Her life was plainly not empty ol delight. She had rings of gold in her ears, and a belt with gems m it about her waist. A young man followed her, imploring her, with tears to turn back, but she kept on her way unil she stood in the midst of the crowd, aud commanding silence by a wave of h.-r hand, then addressed them: "My brothers and my sisters, gnat troul ile has befallen vou. The gods aie angry ; they are call ing lor a sacrifice. Only royal blood will appease them. I hear them as well as you. Very well. Listee to me. Your king and queen have tied.

The gods hali have what they desire I will die I will sa e Behold me shout arose he man fell and kissed lor you. l love you. you. It is spoken, ready to die." As she ceased, a from the people, and t at her foot in tears, them. "My beloved, I save you with the rest," theyoung wile w hispered; and sometimes 1 w come toyou u liftm Kir1 .mil .-in i. .,,1 I .v jiit.ii. uiim nuii riii: to ou. ltjl sometimes you will hear me whis ler to you m your drwams, and doubt not the gods will teel that 1 have done well; and when your spirit passes, it will be into" my heart. This is not the last of love, beloved only the last of it ou earth. Good-bye. good-bye.'' She kissed him and embraced him. aud then arose, strong in her beauty and in her faith in the efficacy of her voluntary death. "Lead me to the toot of the god who gazes a; the sea." she said, '.and there let me die as painlessly as may be, but slowly, that I m ay hear them cease to threaten."' Tin' men of Honolulu obeyed: thev wreathed the vomitr princess with white flowers: t hev bore her to uie 1001 s iooi; tney sang the songs ofsaeri lice, and they bled her to death. Slowly, painlessly, the blood left her veins, and her strength grew less and less, tjup- ported iu her husband's arais. she lay and listened, and those who witnessed all thia say that, just as slowly as those red drops fell the1 THE PRINCESS WHO PEOPLE. ang'i tureen of the earth dimin-' ishtxi'- the roars and iimtteriTigs of ' the vo'caiio grew less, the great waves epon theshoie diminished to tiieir ususl sic.

Another extensive and severe epidemic ol diphlhenu iu Hugland, which was distinctly traceable to the milk supply ot the district in which the outbreak occurred, leads the I. unci t to renew i'.s recommen dation that milk should be boiled beloro it is used. If allowed to stand in a cool place for sometime after boiling, the peculiar taste im parted by the cooking process will almost wholly disappear. The idea thai there is any such thing as an equinoctial gale can hardh prevail much longer, in view of the lostilts of careful investiga tions on the subject in various paits ul the earth. Xo evidence can be found that the time of the vernal or autumnal equinox are stormier than other portions of the year along the German coasts of Europe; and a like e inclusion so far as tho Adriatic Sea is concerned has been reached by a study of weather iceoius kept at the Aus trian poit of Pola for the last ten years. It is iiequently argued that muz .ling dogs has very little effect as a safeguard against hydrophobia. Viscount Cranbrook, however, re cently stated iu Parliament that while the number of deaths from ' hydrophobia in and about London was tweuty-eight in 185, there were only two cases in the year fol lowing, after tho police regulations in regard to muzzling went into effect. He also mentioned the re markable fact that rabies was con stantly prevalent in those paitsof the country where lighting dogs were kept. A man named Cetti, in Berlin, re ct-ntly fasted for eleven days in or der that the physiological effects of thus going without food might he observed by men of science, among whom was tho distinguished Pro fessor Vircbow. t'etti proposed to fast for thirty days, but the inves tigators informed him that the pur poses of science would bo as well subserved if ho shorteued the period to eleven. He drank water and smoked cigarettes, and kept in good condition throughout. lie says he experienced no hunger un til informed on the tenth day that he might eat tomorrow. Then the pangs of hunger kept him awake a part of the night . The annual Congrens of German Physit ian met this year, in April, at Wiesbaden. Many distin guished medical men were present. One of tho subjects discussed was pulmonary consumption, and the general opinion was that no real remedy had been discovered as yet, and that existing methods of treat ment were only palliative. The question whether rest or exercise is to be recommended for patients suffering from diseases of the heart was also debated. Dr. Leyden, the president of the Congress, insisted that many practitioners are too anxious concerning the safety of such patients, and referred to the statement of Sir Andrew Calrk, the eminent English doctor, that he had seen six hundred cases ol heart disease without any bad symptoms for live vears.

"No, it is not," answered the farmer, and j then pointing to the bottle of wins-: key, he added, "but that is!" A woman hastily stepped up to a brakeman of a train on the New Haven railroad, at Stanford, and screamed out; "Is this the right, train!" "Where to?" politely isio-il the iirakeman. "in, you fool!

A Confederate Opinion r Grant! Wilderness l'uuiiasLrii. from the C'enwry war papers for dune we quote the following: When General Grant was appoint ed to t he command of the I'nion armies and established his head quarters with the Army of the Potomac, w e of the Army of North ern Virginia knew very little about his character aud capacity as a ; commander. Even 'old army' officers, who were supposed to ! know all about anyone who had been iu the army before the war. seemed to know as little as any body else. The opinion was pretty freely expressed, however, that his Western laurels would wither in the climate of Virginia. His name was associated with Shiloh, where it was believed that he had been outgeneraled and bad ly beaten by Albert Sidney John scon, aud saved by Bnell. The capture of Vicksbnrgand the battle of Chattanooga, which gave him a brilliant reputation at the North, were believed by the Confederates to be due more to the weakness of the forces opposed to him and the bad generalship of their command ers than to any great ability on his part. That he was bold and ag gressive, we all knew, but we believed that it was the boldness and aggressiveness that arises from the consciousness oi strength, as he had generally managed to fight his battles with the advantage of large ly superior numbers. That this policy of force would be pursued when he took command in Vir ginia, we had no doubt; but we were not prepared for the unpar alleled stubbornness and tenacity with which he persisted in Ins attacks under the fearful losses which this army sustained at the Wilderness and at Spotsylvania. General Grant's method of con ducting the campaign was frequent ly discussed among the Confeder ates, and the universal verdict was that he was no strategist and that he relied almost entirely upon the brnte force of numbers for success. Such a policy is not characteristic of a high order of generalship, and seldom wins unless the odds are overwhelmingly on the side of the assailant. Jc failed in this in stance, as shown by the result at Cold Harbor, which necessitated an entire change in the plan of campaign. What a part at least of his own men thought about General Grant's methods was shown by the fact that many of the prisoners taken during the campaign com plained bitterly of the 'useless butchery ' to which they were sub jected, some going so far as to prophesy the destruction of their army, 'He fights!' was the pithy reply of President Lincoln to a deputation of influential politicians who urged his removal lrom the command of the army. These two words embody perfectly the Con federate idea of Qeneral Grant at that time. If, as the media-val chroniclers tell us, Charles Martel (the Hammer) gained that title by a seven days' continuous battle with the Saracens at Tours, Gen eral Grant certainly entitled him self to a like distinction by bis thirty days' campaign from the Wilderness to Cold Harbor." (ieiicral fee hi the 'WiJdenn ( ji iii- paigrii. From an illustrated description from the Wilderness tojCokl Harbor, in the June Century, we quote as follows: "Geueral Lee held so completely the admiration and con tidence of his conduct of a cam paign was rarely criticised. Few points present themselves in his campaign from the Wilderness to Cold Harbor upon which criticism can lay hold, when all the circum stances are considered. His plan of striking the dank of Grant's army i as it passed through the Wilderness , is above criticism. Fault can be , found only with its execution. The1 two division of Longstreet at Gor donsville, and Anderson's division of HilP s corps left on the Upper : Rapidan, were too widely separated from the rest of the army, and, as the event proved, should have been in supporting distance of A. P.Hill on the Orange Plank road on the afternoon of the 5th of May. That he did not strike Grant adamagiug blow when he had him at such dis advantage on the North Anna may seem strange to those who had witnessed his bold aggresssiveness at the Wilderness and on other fields. He was ill and confined to his tent at the time; but, as show ing his purpose had he been able to keep the saddle, he was heard to say, as he lay prostrated by sick ness, 'We must strike them a blow; we must never let tuem pass us again.' Whatever General Lee did, his men thought it the best that could be doue. under the circum- j stances. Their feeling towards him i is well illustrated by the remark of' a 'ragged rebel' who took off his j hat to the general as he was pass ing and recieved a like courteous l salute in return.

I wish ho was emperoir of j this country and I was his carriage- driver-'" ' Another new system of using petroleum for fuel iu sea-going steamers has been successfully tested at Newcastle-on-Tyne.
