Henry Wnnl Hceclior's Farm.
Mnrk Twain has written of Mr. Bccch
or'fl old farm on Jlio Hudson Itlvor na
Mr. Jlocohcr's fnrm consists of thlrty
bIx ncrc-i, nntl is carried on on strict
Wontlfio principles. Ho never puts in
finy part of it crop without consulting
tin hook. Ho plows, and rams, and
-digs, and sows ncconllnjr to the nest nu
tiliorltics, and the authorities cost moro
diiin tliu other fanning implements do.
Aa soon as the library is complete tiio
farm will begin to bo' a profitable invest
ment. Hut Ijook-farming lias its draw
backs. Upon one occasion, when it
flcemed morally certain that the liny
ought to bo cut, tlifi hay-book could not
be found, and before it was found it was
too late, and the hay was all spoiled.
Mr. Hecclier raised some of the finest
orops of wheat in the country, but the
unfavorable dillerence between the cost
of producing it and its market value aft
cr St is produced has interfered coiihIiI
oraUly with its success as a commercial
.enterprise. His special weakness is
hogs, however. He considers hogs the
Viostganioa farm produces. He buys
the original pig for !?1.C0, and feeds him
$40 worth of corn, nml thou sells him
for about $9. This Is the only crop ho
over makes any money on. Jfe loses on
lho corn, hut he makes $7.fi0on tho hog.
Ho does not mind this, because lie novcr
oxpects to make anything on corn. And,
.any way it turns out, ho has tho excite
ment of raising tho hog, whether lie gets
the worth of him or not. His straw
Ijorrles would be a comfortable success
if tho robins would eat turnips, hut they
won't, and lienco tho dilliculty.
Ono of Mr. Ikechor's most harassing
ilillleulllos in his fanning operations
iomos of tho closo resemblance of dif
ferent sorts of seeds and plants to each
oilier. Two years ago his far-sightod-ncfls
warned him that thero was going
to 1)0 a groat scarcity of watermelons,
and therefore he put in a crop of twenty-seven
acres of that fruit. Hut when
tlioy camo up they turned out to bo
pumpkins, and a dead loss was the con
Hcquouco. Sometimes a portion of his
crop goes into tho ground the most
promising sweot potatoes, and comes up
tho infurnalost carrots though I have
never hoard him express it fust in that
way. When ho bought his farm h6
found ono egg in every hen's nest on the
jilaeo. Ho said that hero was just the
ixniflou so many farmers failed; tlioy
scattered their 'forces too much; con
centration was the idea. So ho gath
ered those eggs together, and put
them all under ono experienced
old hen. That hen roosted over
that contract niglit and day for eleven
-weeks, under the anxious personal su--porvision
of Mr. Needier himself, but
tsho could not " pliaso" thoso eggs.
lVhyP Uoeauso they were thoso infa
mous porcelain tilings which arc used
by ingenious and fraudulent farmers as
" nest-eggs." Hut porliapsMr.Booolior's
most disastrous experience was tho time
lie tried to raise an immoiiHocropof dried
apples. Ho planted $1,600 worth, but
iiovor ono of them sprouted. Ho iias
jiovor boon able to understand to this
day what was tho matter with thoso ap
plos. Mr. Heooher'a farm is not a triumph.
It would bo easier on him if ho worked
it on shares with some ono; but he can
not lind anybody who is willing to stand
half tho expense, mid not many that aro
nblo. Still, porsistonco in any causo is
bound to succeed. Ho was a very in
ferior farmer wlion ho first began, but
i prolonged and unflinching assault up
on his agriouitural dilllculties has had its
clVoot at last, and ho is now fast risim
from aflluonco to poverty.

"'for honors and titles; whenever ho saw a
decoration on tho breast of an Ambassa

not it was an order," an association,

Ibis disquisitions on tho-ordors of Russia.
His importunities to bo created a Princo
wore wearisome. Catherine was not in
tho habit of conferring this rank on any
of her subjects; slio therefore besought
Josoph of Austria to ennoble her favor
ite, who nt tho tlmo had performed no
juiblio service to excuse his elevation to
.such rank. Tho Emperor, with a sense
of shame and degradation, slimed the
-patent of nobility. Anxious to coneill
.tito ono whom tho Empress delighted to
honor, Prussia decorated him with tho
order of tho Hlaok Eagle; Denmark fol
lowed with that of the Elephant, ami
Svodou witli that of tho Soraphim, It
-was a bitter drop in tho cup of life that
. -all Catherine's entreaties could not so
ouro for him tho orders of the Garter, of
tho Holy Ghost, and of tho Golden
'Flcoco. In spito ofiis vast wealth and
occasional prodigality, he was avari

-of weary waiting, returned to Vienna
without recoiving so much as hh travel

wlieu tho whim seized him, was bound

. over given by a subject in honor of a
sovereign than that Potemkiu gave in
honor of Catherine a year be lore his

entered tho saloon to amuse tho guests
whom the Prince had assembled m the
sovereign's honor. Tho company was
thereafter ushered into a second saloon
hung with tiio richest tapestry; in tho
center of it stood an artificial elephant
draped in robes interwoven with emeralds
and rubies. After a pause a signal was
given, and a curtain was drawn expos
ing to view a mnjrnllicent theater, to
grace tho stage of which tho first actors
of tho day had been engaged, the en

An Old Farmer's Jfnrrw liNcapo from
Parties who came in from down tho
Ho.cman road yesterday morning wero
startled to find a wagon and team be
longing to Mr. Filson, of Heaver Creek,
standing in tho prairie about four miles
from town, tiio owner not being in
sight. The horses had boon unhitched
from tho wagon, and it was evident
that they had been thoro the groater
part of tho niglit- It was known that
Mr. Filson started for Helena witli a
load of oats in tho afternoon, and it was
surmised that in tho storm ho had got
oil' tho road, and in tho endeavor to find
it had wandered away from his team
anil lost his way and probably his life.
Tho night had been severely cold and
the storm blinding. It appears, how
over, that in this tlioy wero partially
wrong, as on reaching town Mr. Filson
was found comfortably ensconced at
ono of tho hotels. Ho had left homo
tho nrovious day with about 2,500
pounds of oats in his wagon, and on
reaching Woolfolk hill his team refused
to pull. There was a fierco storm blow
ing, and rather than spend time in a
vain oflbrt to start tho horses, ho took
tho oats, sack by sack, and carried thorn
up tiio hill.
After reloading tho wagon, ho started
on again, but his team soon got into a
snow-drift and could go no farther. Ho
then uuhiteliod tho horses and getting
onto ono of them and leading tho other,
again started for town. Again tho
horses got into a deep snowdrift and
Mr. Filson was unablo to 'make them
movo. Ho was now becoming benumbed
with cold and also became very sleepy,
a dangerous sign. He resolved to go

it, as he had left some blankets there.
Fortunately for him, he was unable to
find tho wagon; wo say fortunately,
for tho reason that if ho had succeeded
in finding it thero is small doubt but
(hat ho would have frozen to death dur
ing tho night. Finally in despair ho
turned toward town, becoming moro
sleepy ami numb every moment.
After a struggle of two or three hours,
which only tho greatest exertion of will
power enabled him to sustain, ho
reached the lower end of Rodney street.
Hero overstrained nature gavo up, anil
tho dcsimiiiiiir man fell to the rmmd.
where ho lay in an almost unconscious
condition. Ho knew that ho was freez
ing to death, but was unablo to longer
fight off the overpowering desire for
sleep. Strango visions appeared before
him and strange sounds rang in his ears.
At ono moment thousands of sleighs
with their jingling bells scorned to pass
round and ovor him. Ho seemed to
hear nuisio and songs in tho distance
and bright, many-colored lights sliono
before him. Providentially at about
this time two men passed along tho road,
and, although believing him to bo drunk,
tlioy rubbed him, got him on to his feet
and managed to got him to a hotel. Mr.
Filson, who Ts seventy-four years old,
has now entirely recovered from the ef
fects of his unpleasant adventure, but it
may bo truthfully said that ho does, not
hanker for any moro oxporionco in freez
ing to death Helena (At. T.) Independent.

It Is Saturday afternoon, and I will
tell you in confidence, my dear reader,
(of course witli tho understanding that
you won't sneak of it,) a littlo of my
personal, private experiences during tiio
On Sifuday morning last I thought I
would try for tho week the experiment
of living cheaply.
Sunday breakfast", hulled Southorn
com, wltii a little milk. My breakfast
cost three cents. I took exactly tho
samo thing for dinner. Food for tho
day six cents. I novor take any supper.
Monday breakfast, two cents' worth
ooatmeal, in tho form of porriihjo,
with ono cents' worth of milk. For
dinner two cents' worth of wliolo wheat
boiled with ono cent's worth of milk.
Food for Monday six cents.
Tuesday breakfast, two cent's ortli
of b6ans, with half a cents' worth of
vinegar. For dinner, ono quart of rich
beau poi-ridjjo, worth one cent, -.villi
four slices of coarse brea l worth two
cents. Food for Tuesday five and a
Wednesday breakfast, hominy mado
of Southern corn (perhaps the best of all
food for laboring men in hot weather)
two cents' worth, with ono cents1 worth
of sirup. For dinner a splendid beef
stow, tho moat in which cost two cenls.
A litlo extravagant you see. Hut then,
you know, " a short life and a merry
one." Perhaps you don't believe that
the meat was purchased for two cents?
Hut it was, though. Tho fact is that
from an ox weighing eight hundred
pounds net, you can purchase certain
parts weighing about ono hundred
pounds, even in this dearest of Ameri
can markQts, for three cents per pound.
Two-thirds of a pound mado moro stew
than I could cat. Thero was really
enough for two of us. Hut then, you
know how careless and reckless wo
Americans are in regard to our tablo
expeuscs, always getting twice as much
as wo need. 1 must not forget to say
that these coarse, cheap portions of tho
animal aro among tho best for a stow.
Tho very genius of waste seems to have
taken possession of me that fatal day. I
poured into my stow all nt once, slap
dab, a quarter of a cent's worth of Lei
cestershire sauce, and us if to show that
it never rains but it pours, I closed that
gluttonous scene by devouring n cent's
worth of hominy pudding. Food for
Wednesday eight and a quarter cents.
Tiio gross excess of Wednesday Ipd to
n very moderate
Thursday breakfast, which consisted
of oatmeal porridge and milk, costing
about two and a half cents. For dinner,
cracked wheat and baked beans, two
cents' worth of each, milk ono cent's
worth. Food for Thursday cost seven
and a half conts.
Friday breakfast, Southern hulled
corn and milk, costing three cents.
For dinner, another of tlioso gormandio
surlieits which so disgraced tho history
of Wednesday. Expense for the day,
eight and a quarter cents.
This morning, when I went to tho
table I said to myself: "What's the uso
of this economy?" and I made up my
mind for this day. at least, I would sink
all moral restraints, and givo up reins
to appetite. 1 have no apology or de
fense for what followed.
Saturday breakfast, I began with ono
cent's worth of oatmeal porridge, with
a teaspoonful of sugar worth a quarter
of a cent. Then followed a cent's worth
of cracked wheat, witli half a cent's
worth of milk. Then tho breakfast
closed with two cent's worth of milk
and ono cent's worth of ryo and Indian
bread. For dinner I ato 'half n small
lobster, which cost three cents, witli
ono cent's worth of coarse bread, and
ono cent's worth of hominy salad, and
closed with two cents' worth of cracked
wheat and milk. Cost of the day's food
twelve and three-quarter conts.
In all of thoso statements only the cost
of material is given. The cost of cook

as health and strength aro concerned,

days I ate too much altogether, and

then I may plead that my habits aro vory

odd pages of this book during tiio week,
but I have done a largo amount of hard,
Hy tho way, I weighed, myself at tho
beginning of tho week and found it was
just two liundred and twelve pounds.
Since dinner to-day I weighed again
and found I balanced two hundred and
twelve and a half pounds, although I
liavo had unusal demands for exertion
of various kinds.
Hut let me feed a family of ten in
stead of ono parson, and I will givo
thorn tho highest health and strength
upon a diet which will cost hero in Hos
ton not moro than two dollars for tho

fer my experiment to town, where
wheat, corn, oats and beef are so cheap,
and tho cost of fooding my family of
ten would bo so ridiculous that I daro
not mention it lest you laugh at me.
And so far from my family group be

gago that they shall bo plumper and
stronger, hoalthicr and happier, witli
clearer skins, brighter oyes, sweeter
broaths, whiter teeth, and, in addition,
tlioy shall llvo longer than your Dol
monico dinars, each of whom spends
enough at a single dinner to feoil my
family of ton for a week. And last,
but not least, they shall enjoy tholr
