This day there had been a battle
noar her home. Tom. the old negro,
hidden in the woods, had limped back
nnd forth to brTTI5-ier reports, always
con ucd and contra-Peton'. Not that
she cared much, in one way, how mat-
tcrs went. The worst had happened
for her: that six-foot Virginian llich
was her country, her wor.d: and she
had lost him! Her passion for ven-
ceance was not crcater than her grief:
although it was a certain satisfaction to

her to know that scores of Northern
mothers' so?s lav dead.
On she went through the woods, out
on a lonely road, a mile or so along it,
across another patch of forest, then
along its edge where it skirted the
highway. The sun was now down, but
it was 3 et light. She saw many strag
glers, heard there had been a brief,
indecisive fight, with small loss on
eilher side. She did not show herself.
Indeed, she had no definite object in
view: she had not thought to find her
son among the dead. Sometimes she

The question of food is an important

a statement who.-e erroneousness can

foundation for a hue quality of beef.

nature never in'ended to produce such

kind of lood its digestibilitv is tho fir-t
thing to be taken into consideration,
the reasons for wh eh wo need hardly
stop t ) explain, simpiv ! iting that the
"ore digestible a food is. the better it
is. In the next place it will be neces-
san to remember that cnaree fodders,
roduced under dilTorciit circum
stances and in dil!crcnt locations,
are not always chenrcnllv the
same. Soil of natural qualitv and
fertility, for instance, will have a very
marked influence upon the chemical
properties of coarse fodder. Tharaud
made an analysis of hav- from a ma
nured meadow, and of tho same kind
of hay from one ha was unmanured,
finding in the first, twelve per ctnt. of
protean and from the second only nino
ner cent. Moekorn analyzed rank
plants of wheat, bar.cv, oats and ive

are what thev are. The conditions tin

taken into coiiidciation, and the lesson
learned that the. most j erfee' grasses
arc produced upon the best soils. Un
der such circumstance-, all of the grass

The mode of curing hay has a vast
deal to do with its digestibility and

Iv is the percentage of crude fiber, and
tho more digestible the crude fiber is.
This certainly appeals to the judgment,
and if it d d not. experiment has dem
onstrated it. Yet it is a lact that ninny
persist in cutting grasses long after
they have obtained a reasonable ma
turity, and, what is more. the3' argue
that it is host to do so The same proc
ess of reasoning would otabl sh in a
dying tree more vitiditi' than athrift3,
growing tree i obsesses. After cutting,
the grass is frequently cured to death,
a large portion of its value dried and
burnt out of it. Grass never should bo
allowed to dry a moment longer or to
a degree further than is absolutely nec
essary to insure its preservation. It is
not only a waste of time to do more
than this, but it is a waste of nutritive
' material. Western Jlttrul.
Fruit Trees for Ornament-
Can any one tell me why a grape
vine is not a suitable ornament for a
front porch, or what would be the ob
jection to a fine standard pear or grand
wide spreading apple tree in the lawn?
Was ever a blossoming shade tree more
beautiful than either of thess when the
flowers come out? and is not the r.ch
green of the leaves a thing of beauty a.l
Thc tpvon' AVhen tho ournlo clusters

files and juicy pears shine through the

It is asserted that much of the failure

Hon between the two roots, aud the

possible this heaving of the soiL This
solidity acts in two ways, keeps the
drill hoes from running too deep and
reta'ns moisture longer than loo'e s iil.
So far as the preparation of the soil in
fluences thc grow th of the wheat, it is
upon the side of deep breaking of the
soil and thorough pulvcr zation. But
two things must be avoided in even
this, theihrow:ng of thc raw, tinwork
ed earth from below oa top; and when
fined and made thoroughly mellow,
again compressing it so as to hold
moisture. The old idea of plowing
deep for corn and shallow for wheat is
radically wrong, for the roots of each
do not mar the surface, an J at th":?
Sioint the fertilizers should be applied,
