"I hold tbat Christian grace abounds,
Where charity is seen; that when
We climb to heaven, 'tis on the rounds
Of love to men.
'Tis not the wide phylactory,
Nor stubborn fast; or stated prayers,
That makes us saints; we judge the tree
By what it bears."
Our behavior, our daily actB and
deeds, much more than our words,
are continually revealing to all
around us, what wc are. And we
ought to practice more love and
charity towards onr fellow mortals
than we do, rather than talk so much
about iL Christ tells us to let our
light shine, and if it does, we will
not need to tell anybody that it does,
tor the light will be its own witness.
Lighthouses don't ring bells and fire
cannons to call attention to their
shining, but just shine; and there ere
no lives so humble and lowly, if they
are obedient to God,. but that they
can and will ebine with brilliancy.
And though most of their triends
may, like their shadows, only cling
to them while the sun shines, yet, in
adversity as well as in prosperity, in
Hickness as well as in health, God
their best friend, will not forsake
them, nor cease to love lhani, for
love is the burden of this earth, and
of his blessed and glorious gospel.
Here is love's climax, its interest
flame, and following so divine a
light, no one need go astray.

Mothers will find that, if they con
stantly display their infants as
prodigies of fweetneps aud smart
ness, those infants, grown to seven,
or twelve, will be apt to be an af
fliction to all with whom they come
in contact. The modest, quiet and
deferential manuer of children in
England or France never fails to
make an American traveler very
grateful and very thoughtful indeed.
For the boisterousness and audacity
of the young of this land affect not
only society and personal comfort,
but have an important bearing on
the future of this country's welfare.
This prevalent londnes should be
reformed altogether and that at

Experiment im Pig; Feed lag.
One of our Agricultural Colleges
made some valuable experiments
last fall in the matter of feeding pigs
that farmers having hogs to fatten
this year will do well to consider.
The object of the experiments was
to determiue the influence of pro
tection from, or exposure to the
weather in the cost of meat produc
tion, aud the respective value of corn
and bran as food for fattening the
The experiment begau November
1, 18S0, aud continued eleven weeks.
Ten Berkshire pigs were taken, and
each put iu a pen by himself. The
previous care and feed having been
Five of the pens were placed in a
; basement of a warm stone barn, aud
five ou the south side of a five foot
board feuse with plenty of straw,
but no other protection.
The result was as follows:
In the pens in the barn where the
pigs were fed bran alone, 100 pounds
increase of live weight required 416
pounds of corn.
In the pens in the yard, fed corn
alone, 100 pounds increase live
weight required 549 pounds of corn.
In proteced pens where corn and
bran were fed together, 100 pounds
increase iu live weight required 4S1
ponds of corn, and 70 pouuds of
In nnprotected pens where corn
and bran were fed, ICO pouuds in
crease of live weight required 517
pounds of corn, and 82 pounds of
A noticeable feature in the experi
ment was, thepigs outside consumed
much less food than those inside as
well as gave less increase for what
they did consume. As the bog is
valuable in proportion to his ability
in converting grain into pork, this
was, of course, an additional inci
dental loss connected with feeding
in exposed pens.
Two lessons are very clear as the
result of these experiments. Bran
is not a profitable feed to use in fat
tening hogs, and it don't pay to have
pigs exposed to the weather.
Taking the experiment in which '
the pigs outside did the best, and
comparing it with the pigs inside,
and the farmer who produced 10,000
pounds of pork would lose 61 bush
els of corn in the operation.
It was found that 8X pounds of
corn were abont equal to 754 pounds
ui coarse no one set or expert-J
ments can settle a matter of this
kind, but these experiments point
very clearly in one direction, and
this year when corn and pork are
both high, and it is desirable to pro--dn.ee
t as many pounds of pork as
: poesible from a bushel of corn, far
. mere' will do well to note these facts
and consider if it will not pay well
to give the fattening hogs the warm
est and most protected quarters pos
sible. Live JPatron.
One of the most disagreeable of
American characteristics is the im
pertinenco and noisy obtrusiveness
of children. In no other civilized
country do children behave half so
badly. In other lands children are
restrained, suppressed, and taught
that their clamor is not agreeable,
and tbat respect for elders requires
them to keep silence until they are
asked to speak. In no other land
do children ever think of joining in
conversation unbidden, or of ex
pressing opinions and intentions in
a confident tone and manner, as is
common among us. And in no
other land are all infants and grow
ing children regarded as prodigies
to be exhibited like educated parrots
and rare Madagascar poodles. It is
thig habit of exhibiting children
as precocious that does more to spoil
them and make them intolerable than
any native faults of their own ; for
a child of seven naturally findB dif
ficulty in understanding why the
impertinences and personalities
which were considered so 'cunning'
at four have become improper and
a nuisance iu such a very short time. I
How sadly settles down upon the
human heart the sorrowful truth
that the brightest and best of exist
ence baa fled. Those dear, delight
ful years before we trod the rough
and rugged road of experience and
bit off more than we could masticate.
One by one wo count the priceless
bits of knowledge we have gained
and look ever the store as the miser
reckons his treasure.
We call to mind how the cold,
clammy truth was revealed to us at
one time that, in gathering the full
blown roses of life, too oft we gath
er also the feverish and irritable
bumble bee nestling in its petals.
How freshly comes back to us the
memory of that bright autumnal
day, when the sky was one vast sea
of billows and the spicy aroma of
decaying vegetation pervaded every
thing ; that day when we made some
scientific experiments with what is
called three card monte and went
home without our overcoat.
That was a long time ago, but how
fresh it is in our memory and bow
fresh it seemed to our parents when
we made some scientific experi
ments. Yes, we are not so frolicsome now
as wc were forty or fifty years ago,
but we know more. It is true we
cannot go in swimming all day with
impunity, or walk around a billiard
table all day, aud then glide through
the Blue Danube waltz all night as
we once could, but we have acquired
some high-priced experience and
put it whore we can get at it.
We were making an estimate last
evening of the value of a few items
of experience which wc have now
ou hand, aud among the more valu
able ones we will name the follow
ing: Cost of experiments with mixed
Expense of calling a large, healthy
man a liar, $50.
Experiments in going without un
Experience with ostensibly dis
abled hornets, $365.
Cost of winning the love and con
fidence of au orphan mule, $500.
Little lessons in investigating dif
ferent games of chance, with a view
to making them a business, $2,500.
Experience with watermelons,
guarded by irritable bull-dogs $525.
Cost of unavailing efforts to pre
vent baldness, $783 20.
Expense of personal investigation
of lotteries, $93526.
Actual cost of obtaining $13 worth
of fame, which is now for Bale at the
above price and still in good work
ing order, though slightly tarnished,
There are other expensive little
nuggets and gobs of ripe experience
that we have on hand, and we can
not look on them without a pardon
'Tis true tbat what we have learn
ed is not very valuable to others,
but it is a good thing to have, and
we can nse it right along in our bus

The gross earnings of the Union
Pacific railroad company for the
year 1881 reached the enormous to
tal of $29,617,000, against $25,494,

RAILROADING FIFTY YEARS AGO.
Fifty years ago the railroad sys
tem in this country was a weak in
stitution. Of the proposed 250 miles
of the Baltimore and Ohio railroad,
sixty miles were completed and in
operation Jan. 1,1832; the Albany
and Schenectady had twelve of its
fourteen miles in operation. The
road next in importance to the Bal
timore and Ohio At that time, the
old Charleston and Hamburg, which
was to be 135 miles in length, had
twenty miles iu operation aud was
carrying the United States mail, it
being one of the first, if not the very
first, railroad to have a contract with
the government for carrying the
mail. The Mauch Chunk had nine
miles completed and iu use, and the
Quincy, a stone-quarry road near
Boston, generally known as the first
railroad in the country, had nine
in use. Work was begun on the
Ithaca and Oswego 29 miles, the
Lexington and Ohio 75 miles, the
Camden and Amboy 50 miles, and
the Lackawaxen 16 miles. Among
other railroad enterprises about be
ing undertaken were the Boston and
Albany, the Boston and Providence,
and the Philadelphia and Norris-
town. Iu 1832 applications were
made to the legislature of New York
for charters for twenty-five railroads
iu different parts of the state, with
an aggregate capital of $42,000,000.
The most important of these projects
were the Lake Erie and the Hudson
River railroads, the former being
described as "from Lake Erie
through the southern tier of coun
ties to the Hudson river, crossing p
ferry, aud then down on the east
side to the city of New York."
There was considerable opposition
to the construction of railroads in
this state, and of this road in partic
ular, the opposition coming largely
of course fromthoBe who looked up
on the railroad as the destroyer of
the canal, then one of tho chief
prides of the state. The bill incor
porating the New York and Erie
railroad was passed April 24, 1832.
It looks as big as an ordinary-:zed
floor. It i9 really ten feet long,
wide in proportion, and about twice
as high as a common bed. The
magnificent dressing case is also a
huge afi'iir, with a glass upou it
nearly as big as the side of a house.
Iu the sitting room is a piano of
ordinary size itself, but it is mounted
on blocks two feet hteh, so that the
instrument is away up in the air, out
of the reach of sommon folks. There
are two rocking chairs in this room
that are so big that the reporter had
to climb up into one of them 'the
same a6 au infant would clamber up
into a "high-chair." It is very, ex
pensive for the giants to live as they
have to pay such an exorbitant price
for everythiug they wear. For in
stance, it costs the Captain $30 for a
pair of boots.
Our wheat should be manufactur
ed into flour and shipped to the
west instead of shipping the grain
to Chicago. Sugar and syrup, the
production of which is so rapidly
gaining importance in the north
west, will find a ready market in the
mountains. Linseed oil, besides the
home consumption will be used in
large quantities in the west. Paper,
which necessarily accompanies the
oil manufacture is always in de
mand Corn and hay will find an
unlimited market. Coarse woolen
goods, such as can be most profitably
manufactured here, will find this
market at our doors. Butter and
cheese will always command the
highest price. Kearney can and
should be the distributing point of
au immense trade. But it requires
au enlightened foresight, energy and
public spirit in her citizens to bring
it about. We can raise and man
ufacture agricultural products,which
are just what are required by miners
and manufacturers of the various
mineral products. The first neces
sary Btep towards the accomplish
ment of these results is to bring un
der control tho power of thousands
of horses and men, which is sweep
ing past us iu the Platte river, and
with It double the value of our
products in their manufacture, and
donble the production of our soil
with the water which has done its
work iu ruuuing our mills. Kear

The subject of water works for
Madison is being discussed by our
citizens. The project we think a
good one, and is as follows ; A res
ervoir is to be built somewhere up
above M. F. Thomas' residence and
the water forced into it from Mill
Lake. The power to run a force
pump can be obtained of Fritz and
Wolf without charge. About a four
inch pipe would be required to con
duct the water to the reservoir, and
from there it would be carried down
Main in another and larger pipe,
with hydrants at different places, to
which a hose, kept for tbat purpose,
could be attached. It is supposed
that the pressure from the reservoir
would be suflbient to throw the
water a distance and height suffi
cient to make a most excellent fire
protection. The cost is estimated at
from $1,500 to $2,000. This matter
should be tilked up and if it can bo
procured rov toy such figures, it
would be zhe best thing Madison
could do to secure it. It could be
easily ascert erred what the cost
would be and also if the pressure
would be strong enough to answer
the purpose. Chronicle.
Mr. Sankey believes that the sing
ing in churches should be led by a
choir. That the choir should be at
the same end of the church where
the minister is, either behind him or
beside him. The choir and minister
are not independent performers
the one to preach and the other to
sing. They unite in leading the wor
ship of the congregation, and ought to
be in harmony with each other; and
in order to be in harmony, the sing
ers ought to be Christians. How
can a man praise God acceptably
when there is no love for God in his
heart ? A great deal of the proverb
ial trouble with church choirs grows
out of the fact that the singers are
not Christians. Mr. Sankey does
not object to quartette choirs but be
would have a large chorus choir
around the quartette, to join it inccr
taiu parts. He liked solos and spec
ial pieces by trained singers, yet be
would have only one or two such
pieces during any one service, and
would have at least two hymns in
which the whole congregation could
join. He says that the minister
should join in the singing, and not
be fumbling over his notes as i'f
he had nothing to do with praising
God. The minister should not only
sing himself, but urge all to sing.
Choirs ought to behave like ladies
and gentlemen. They have no busi
ness to be whispering, or flirting or
reading newspapers while the minis
ter is preaching. They ought to
sing distinctly, so that the congrega
tion can understand the words. The
church is not an opera, to gratify a
taste for artistic music. It should
furnish the music that will please
and edify the majority of the wor
shipers and not merely a cultured and
fastidious few. The children should
be brought to the church and accus
tomed to take part in the singing.
In Mr. Spurgeon's church the chil
dren all sit together and great pains
are taken to train them in singing.
Ministers ought to pray for a special
blessing on the singing. It is a
means of grace as well as the Scrip
ture reading and the sermon. And
finally, the byras and the sermon
ought to bo in harmony.

D. Augustus De Plongeon, now
examining the ruins of Yucatan,
writes as follows to Marshall P.
Wilder, of the New England histo
rical genealogical society : "I have
discovered among the ruins of May
apau the guomon used by the
astronomers of that city, also a com
plete Masnuic temple with symbols
and hieroglyphics. I have found
the portraits of the founders of the
cities and interpreted the meaning of
certain ornaments that have been
misunderstood by other travelers. I
have ascertained that the key to the
ancient Maya. alphabet is the true
one, and by its means Mrs. De Plou
geon and myself have been able to
read the names of the founders aud
those of the cities. I have found
that this alphabet contains letters
and characters belonging to the
Egyptian, Etruscan and Chaldean
alphabets, and also that the Maya
language is akin to all the ancient
languages spoken by men in ages
long gone by. My studies have
caused me to believe that the found
ers of the first Chaldean monarchy
were Maya and probably the people
who colonized Egypt aud brought
civilization to that country. You
must remember that the Egyptian
priests always pointed to the west
when asked concerning the birth
place of their ancestry."

She can see how cheese can be lively,

Captain Martin Van Buren Bates,
who lives on a farm near Seville,
Ohio, is 7 feet 11) inches high and
weighs 478 pounds. Mrs. Bates is 7
feet 11 inches high and weighs 413
pounds. It is a difficult matter to
convey an adequate idea of the pro
portions of such a dwelling as the
one occupied by the Ohio giants. A

U a large-sized opening in the side
of a house that is, a dwelling house,
not a cathedral. But the doors in
the domicile of the Bates giants are
ten feet bigb, and the knobs are
nearly as bigb as the reporter's
head. The house was built by Cap
tain Bates in 1876 and is elegantly
furnished. In the main building on
the ground floor are, besides the
spacious hall, the bed-chamber of
the giants, a sittiag room and a par
lor. The couch upon which the big
couple sleep was made especially for
them, and it is a curiosity to look at.

Moral decay in the family is the
invariable prelude to public corrup
tion. It is a false distinction which
we make between public integrity
and private honor. The man whom
you cannot admit into your family,
whose morals are corrupt, cannot be
a pure statesman. Whoever studies
history will be profoundly convinced
that a nation stands or falls with the
sanctity of its domestic ties. Some
mixed with Greece, and leaned her
morals. The Goth was at her gatc3
but she fell not till she was corrupt
ed and tainted at the heart. The
domestic corruption preceded the
political. When there was no long
er purity on her hearthstone, nor in
tegrity in her senate, then, and not
till then, her death-knell was rung.
Nothing is easier than fault-finding.
No talent, no self-denial, no
brains, no character are required to
set up in the grumbling business.
But those who are moved by a
genuine desire to do good have little
time for murmuring or complaint.

it, cured a horse of lameness caused by
a spavin. Lnst season my horse became
very lame and I turned 'him out for a
few weeks when he became better, but
when I put him on the road he grew
worse, when I discovered that a ring
bone was forming, 1 procured a bottle
of Kendall's Spavin Cure and with les.
