POETRY. *4Mc£ Merilles is Dead*” BY MBS. S. M. B. TIATT. Remembering Ellangowan’s Light, The little maid looked up, and said (Ah me, the little maid was right!), “See here—Meg Merrilies is dead. “I wonder why she loved him so, That Henry Bertram? Ho was rich, I guess, and handsome, too, you know, Aud she was nothing but a witch.” Ah, nothing but a witch, indeed! Hide not her grave in common flowers: Such dust as hers can never need These foreign violet-dews of ours. The weirdest woman ever found Outside the world of shadow, she In the north w izard’s charmed ground Should sleep, wheie hills of heather be. Meg MerrilieR it was who died; Aud iu a child’s half-saddened heart, A child’s hall-conscious words could hide, 1 think, the truest praise of art. ^ —Harper's Bazar. THE FAIIM AND HOUSEHOLD. Laying out a Nmall (Harden, Vick’s Floral Guide contains the following: “How shall 1 arrange my little front yard, of less than thirty feet square, to make it look beBt?” writes a new correspoudent. Having given our friend from Connecticut the Eng lish plau desired, we will now give a simple plau of our own, and we would like to see them made, side by side. It is not well to have every little garden an exact copy of its neighbor, for there is beauty iu diversity. In gardening, it is best not t o attempt more than we can accomplish, but todo everything in the best possible manner. In so small a place the plan should be simple. Much has been written against straight walks and, in consequence, there has for some years, been a mania for curved paths, aud rnauy little front yards have been sadly disfigured by a desperate attempt to make a graceful curve in a,little walk leading from the street to the front door, and perhaps not more than twen ty feet in length. All such walks should be straight, and.the attempt to make them oth erwise is ridiculous. With a good, neat, and broad walk to the front door, from this a narrower one leading to the rear ol the house, you have all the walks necessary, and all that will look well. In a lot only thirty leet in width, the walk leading to the front door will be, of course, only a few feet from one side of the lot, leaving space for a little unbroken lawn, about twenty by thirty ieet, if the house should stand thirty feet from the street. The space on the other side of the walk will be only a narrow border. Have all the space not used for the walk graded nicelv and covered with grass, either by sodding or sowing seed. Seed must be sown in early fail or spring, and sodding should be done at the same seasons. Keep the grass in perfect order hy frequent cutting, and it will look well at all times, except during severe droughts in the middle of summer. If it can have a soaking of water once or twice a week it will be as green as emerald in the northern States from April till November, and in some places nearly or quite the whole year. Ken tucky blue grass, or lawn grass seed, which is about the same, is the best seed to sow. Now we have the foundation of all orna mental gardening, a good walk and a well kept lawn, and there is little more to do—on ly just a little ornamenting or gilding. This must be done sparingly. Profuse ornamen tation outrages all good taste, so we will make a bed in the middle of the lawn, of some simple form, a circle or an oval. This would look well filled with caladiums and cannas. If these should be too expensive, ten cents worth of striped and blotched pe tunia seed would give plants enough for two such beds, and would be exceedingly showy, and endure all summer. Thanks to a kind Providence, beauty is cheap, almost, and of ten entirely, without money or price. A few shrubs around edges of the little lawn, per haps to screen the fence or any other object, some climbers over the front door, like the astrolochia, and a climbing rose at or near the corner of the house farthest from the front door, and you have done about all that can be done to beautify so small a space. In deed of the flower bed in the centre of the lawn it would not be a bad plan to substitute a fine, well-filled vase, with a small bed of flowers near each corner, or a few half-moon shaped beds near the fence. The Uad-Fly. It may be that the presence of a few grubs is not a source of serious damage; but it is an undistputable fact, observed quite often, that numerous giubs, or larvae, cause always considerable emaciation and, in some cases, even loss of life. I myself had once an op portunity to make a post-mortem examina tion of a heifer killed by these larvae. The hide for at least a foot on each side of the vertebral column, was not only perforated by a large number of grub holes, but also per fectly separated from the body; for the tum ors or cavities containing the larvae or mag gots were so close together as to make them confluent; and at least one-third of the whole surface of the body presented after the skin was removed, an uninterrupted, suppurating field. As no other morbid changes of any consequence presented themselves, there can wo uv uuuui/ uic tauac ui iuc auiuiai s death. Of course, alter the larva; or grubs have made their exit, and after the tumors have healed, the usually emaciated cattle will improve rapidly and almost visibly; for then the food consumed is for their exclusive good. This observation has probably led to the mis taken idea that the grubs at the gad fly exert a sanitary influence upon their abode' animals. That the constaut irritation and Ihe continued suppuration caused by these larvse, and their feeding upon matter and expudation proceeding from the body of the abode animal must be very injurious to the latter, must interfere with its natural growth and development, and, in conse quence, be a source of loss to the owner, is too self-evident to need any further proof. The question is, How can such losses be pre vented, and how can the gad-fly, or its brood be destroyed ? To find the pupae, to catch the flying insect, or to prevent it from depositing its eggs, is a matter of difficulty, and almost impossible; but to destroy the larvse before they have arrived at maturity, is quite easy,—for their exact place beneath the skin is indicated plainly enough by the presence of the tumors, and is of easy access on account of the openings in the skin. The simplest way to get at these larvae, and to kill them, is to enlarge the opening of each tumor with a narrow-bladed knife, and to draw out the larvse by means of pincers, or with a small hook. Even a large herd of cattle may thus be freed very easily from the larva; in one day by one person; and if every farmer would do it a few years in suc cession, the gad fly would very soon become too scarce to do any damage. Bracy Clark recommends another method. He advises to destroy the larvsB by injecting into each tumor some corrosive fluid,—for instance, a solution of corrosive sublimate or of sulphate of copper; or to kill the same by pricking them with a red-hot needle. If injections are to be used for that purpose, I would pre fer carbolic acid diluted with about one or two parts of glycerine, and two or three parts of water. Still, the former method, consist ing in enlaring the openings and extracting the larvse, deserves the preference, as the consequent suppuration will be much less and the healing much quicker if the larvse have been removed.—Chicago Tribune. Poultry Hints. Chicken coops should be kept dry and wholesome. It is not necessary to clean them often if they are kept well littered with dry earth, ashes or dry sawdust. Give the fowls liberty to roam at large, if possible; if not, supply them with animal food in some shape, also lime, ground bone and green vegetables. A box containing pulverized charcoal should always be within reach of the fowls, as it is a great preventive of dis ease. Do not be afraid of snow water. Fowls will always drink it whenever it is convenient, and I have never seen any ill ef fects from it. xour supply ot eggs will depend very much on the quantity and quality of food furnished. Never over-feed. More fowls are ruined by being over-fed than by being fed too sparing ly. I have often heard people complain alter this style: “My hens do not lay worth a cent, and they have all the corn they can eat.” Some fowls that have a large range, and ex ercie smuch, may lay well it they are stuffed day after day with corn; but it’ is very poor policy and economy to feed in that way. Give fowls light food and not all they can eat. A variety of hard food (corn, barley, wheat, buckwheat, &c.,) given once a day sparingly is necessary; but the principal supply should be soft food, thoroughly scalded. Corn and oats ground together, such as is commonly used for horse feed, and wheat bran (the coarsest), mixed in equal portions by meas ure, well scalded, is the best and most eco nomical food that can be used. Give this in the morning, and grain sparingly at night. Never feed old fowls oftener than twice a day, and, it they have fields to roam over, feed no more than half what they would nat urally eat. Occasionally give them a little ground mustard, ginger or pepper in their food, but do not always be doctoring them. Follow these roles, and if your fowls do not lay, you may reasonably expect they never will. The food recommended above is also suitable for young chicks, young ducks and old ducks, and, in short, all kinds of poultry. Never feed raw mush; do not confine your young chicks to a steady diet of raw meal and cold water. On a farm, where they have unlimited range, they may do well; but cracked corn is far better, and should be al ternated with the soft food. Boiled eggs for young chicks can be dispensed with; they are too expensive, and the scalded lood answers every purpose. Remember that much de pends on the proper manner of feeding.— C. Gentleman. Home-Made Soap. For four pounds of tallow, oil, or lard, take two pounds of soda, one ot unslackcd lime, half an ounce of beeswax, quarter of an ounce of rosin, half a leaspoouful of borax. Put the lime and soda in a vessel with six quarts ol water, stir them well, and allow tt,e liquid to settle till clear; then pour off and strain the clear lye, and pour into the lime aDd soda a gallon of water; when clear strain into another vessel. Melt the grease, and when it is boiling hot pour in the weak lye,5a cupful at a time till the whole is saponi fied. Continue to boil, and add the strong lye till the whole is in; keep boiling aud stirr ing till the soap is so thick that the spoon will stand in the middle without holding. Now add the rosin aud borax pulverized, stir them in well and pour the soap into a mould, from which cakes can he cut to suit when it is cold. From this may be made any kind of perfumed soap by melting it and adding honey, oil ot rose, bitter almonds, lavender and other perfumes used in the manufacture of toilet soaps.—Mrs. Mason: Hollow-Horn. A. I. Patchin asks for the cause, cure and prevention of hollow-horn. The surest pre vention is to breed only polled (muley) cattle, as all others (bulls excepted), have the bony support of the horn hollow after three years old. It seems impossible to persuade many cattle owners of this, however, and almost every disease is attributed to the horns. Ev ery sick cow has to be tested with the gimlet, and if it happens to strike one of the bony pillars in the hollow cavity, the cause of dis ease is looked for elsewhere, but if these pillars are missed, then the malady is hollow horn, and all sorts of irritating agents are rubbed into the tender cavity, promptly de termining irritation and discharge lrom the nose. The real disease is most commonly some disorder of the digestive or respiratory organs, or a slight febrile attack which will pass off with a warming laxative drink and comfortable clothing and stabling.—Prof Law, in N. Y. Tribune. LOST AND FOUND. -3 Lost A ROLL of Bills, containing about $30, between Forbes Street, on lower road to Morrill’s Comer and city.
