. FICTITIOUS CONFESSIONS.
Moat persons when they hoar that a
culprit has confessed his crime consider
that, of course, lie must be guilty.
" What is the need of any proof if the
man has confessed?" Many novels and
stories are written upon the idea that
an admission of guilt is abundantly suf
ficient to warrant punishing the person
who makes it. But lawyers and judges
have observed that confessions are very
This is well illustrated by the strange
story of Colvin and the Booms.
Seventy years ago there lived in
Manchester, 'L, a family named Boorn,
composed of father and mother, two
sons, Jes.se and Stephen, and a
daughter who was married to a man
named ( olvin. This Colvin was of
weak and gradually decaying ruiDd;
did but little to support himself and
wife; was wont to ramblR away, no
one knew whither, for days and weeks
at a time; and Jcs-o and Stephen
Boom found fault with him and treated
m unkindly for his idle ways and be
cause he and his wife depended on the
Boorn family for much of their sup
port. At length Colvin disappeared on one
of his erratic ex Mirsions, and failed to
return. Some months afterward the
mystery was explained by finding that
he had strayed, in a demented way, to
New .Jersey; but at the time when our
dory opens In; was missing, and the
neighbors uere beginning to inquire
wnat n.iu i-ccomo 01 111111, and to dis
cuss whether the Itoorn boys could
have carried their ill treatment of him
so f:-r as to kill him. No wonder that
when people were ta'kinir of such an
affair some of them .should.olream of
it; and ui.uwj4rffK.tn -dnfttnied "three
that be kindled the fire to J a bribe
which had been paid him i doing so;
and ho was executed for t.ic supposed
crime. Probably he had become weary
of life, yet could not quite resolve to de
stroy himself. Some persons have such
a diseased ambition to be talked about
that they will make false confessions.
About twenty years ago there was a
mysterious murder in New York City,
of a dentist named Burdell; and while
police and people were making every
effort to detect the otienders, a person
avowed himself guilty. But inquiry
showed he had no part in the crime: ha
only said so to obtain the temporary
notoriety. The like has been done in
many instances. A fit of insanity, or of
drunkenness, may lead a person to con
fess something which he has not done.
Sometimes, no doubt, persons make
fictitious confessions in order to dis
grace or injure others whom they charge
with having taken art in the o ense.
and sometimes the opposite happensa
relative or friend will as-umie a crime in
order to shield the real offender. For
example: In England, once, two bro'h
ers were suspected of a highway rob
bery. They were in fact guilty, but a
third brother, younger than they, con
fessed that he committed it, upon which
he was seized and they were let alone.
They escaped to America, after which
the younger brother retracted his con
fession and made clear proof that he
was innocent Of course he could not
be punished for the robbery which he
did not commit; and his guilty brothers
could not be, for they were out of reach.
Suppose a man enters the police office
in a Massachusetts town and says:
"Several years ago I stole money" in
Boston, and-my conscience troubles me
bo much about it that I have come to
give myself up to be punished." If the
officers are not shrewd if they take it
for granted that because a man has con
fessed he must be guilty they will very
likely send the man to Boston to be
tried; and of course they must feed him
and pay his car fare on the journey
When the party reach Boston the otli
cers find that no one knows anything
about any such theft as their prisoner
confessed, and they have to set him at
liberty. Thus he "has b en carried to
Boston without having to pay anything,
which is just what he wished.
Whenever we hear or read that a per
son has admitted himself guilty of a
crime, we aie not to be absolutely sure
at once that he is so, but must remem
ber that fictitious confessions aie not
uncommon. Wide Awake

Advice to a Young Man.
Don't bo mean, my boy; don't do
mean things and say mean things.
Cultivate a feeling of kindness, a spirit
of cha'ity broad and pure for tneo and
things. Believe the best of everybody,
have faith in humanity, and ui you
think better of other people, you vill be
better yourself. You can, with aome
accuracy, measure a man's character by
me esteem in which lie holds other men.
When I hear a man repeatedly declar
ing that all other men are knaves, I
want a fc.rong endorsement on that
man's paper before I'll lend him mon
ey. When a man assures me that all
the Temperance men in the town take
their drinks on the sly, I wouldn't
leave that man and my private demi
john if 1 had one together in a room
five minutes. When a man tells me that
he doesn't know one preacher who
isn't a hypocrite, I have all the evi
dence I want that that man is a liar.
Nine times in ten, and frequently oflen
er, you will find that nion endeavor to
disfigure all other men with their own
weaknesses, failings and vices. So do
you. my boy, think well ami haritablv

Perhaps there is no part of the care of
cattle which exerts a more important
influence in maintaining: a healthy and
thrifty condition, than a proper selec
tion and apportionment of food. Tact
comes into requisition here as fully as
in any portion of the management of
cattle that are housed for feeding.
Cattle that arc housed, getting no ex
sreise, require to be fed with no little
discretion. The art of feeding properly
in such a case i3 not mastered in a day.
iTeither does it follow that every man
who can dig a good ditch, or build a
tack of hay that will shed ra;n, will
necessarily be competent to apportion,
combine, and deal out food to valuable
cattle. The methods by which this is
done successfully are acquired by
studiously watching the habits of bodv
of each beast, giving to one a different
mixture of mod from that given to an
other. Cattle, like men, iepresent
quite diverse conditions, as to tendency
to obesity or the opposite, as they do also
in ttie tendency winch food has in ren
dering the bowels loose or otherwise.
Certain cows habitually become loose in
the bowels when fed "freely upon such

A less perfect digestive power will
generally be found to be the cause of
certain cows becoming loose in the bow

capabilities of such require to be care
fully studied, and herein lies one of thj
strongest objections against frequent
changes of men where the health and
thrift of valuable animals are involved.
As stated, stock that is housed, having
little exercise, and kept in a fairly even
temperature, if not in an actively grow
ing state should be fed with a great deal
of judgment Discretion, in this case,
has reference not altogether to quantity
of food. The demands of the system of

and the combinations that should he at

herdsman can practice his art upon each

As a rulo, a combination of wheat
bran and oil-cake meal will accomplish
more in maintaining a lot of closely-
stabled breeu ng and growing cattle
stock in a satis'a -tory condition than
any other two articles whatever. Bran,
which was formerly supposed to be the
mere refuse part, bearing a relation to
the inner portion of the grain like that
born by the shell of the nut to the meat
within, of about as much value as the
straw upon which the grain grew, is
lound to contain no small portion of
the constituents required by both grow
ing and mature animals. The laxative
tendency, objected to by some, depends
upon mechanical action, and is readily
modified by combining the finer descrip
tions of mill reruse with it, in propor
tions required by the habits of body of
different animals in the herd.
Oil-cake meal, whi'e having a laxu
tivc tendency if fed somewhat liberally,
nevertheless is one of the best combi
nations with bran, when skillfully han
dled, as its mucilage and oil allay irri
tation of the mucous surface, and the
constituents of these two article.--, com
bined with good hay, take, perhaps, a
wider range than any other two arti
cles. Oats, of course, are alwa- s suit
able, for either young or aged stock ;
but in considering the claims which
b-an has upon our attention, economy
cuts quite a figure. This, togethe
with the fact that it is infinitely sa ei
for breeding animals than corn meal,
renders it one of the best aids in the
feedinir stable, provided, always, tha' it
is seconded by other foo!s, according
to the varying requirements mentioned!
as these occur from day to day. All
fanners who occupy advanced ground

posed to occupy this position will bear

in phosphates, and these are of special
value to lauds long in use. for crop
growing and grazing. There is no mis

I have had thoroughbred fowls on
the brain so long that I don't know
whether I can tell the truth about
common fowls or not, but I'll try. Now
don't imagine that I am going back on
the thoroughbreds, for I shall do noth
ing of the kind. I admire the pure
breeds; I believe in them, but I recog
nize the fact that there are many
farmers who cannot afford to stock up
with thoroughbred fowls to begin with
any more than they can a lo d to start
a dairy with a $500 cow. If a farmer
had but $500 to stock a farm with, it
would be the height of folly to spend
the whole sum on one cow; so if he had
but $5 to stock his poultry yard it
would hardly pay to spend it all'on one
thoroughbred rooster. A $5 rooster
might take a premium at the county
fair, and the owner might take pride iii
the ownership of the bird, but when it
conies to producing eggs, one old 25
cent common hen will beat ail the $5
roosters in creation. The best breed
ers of thorough-bred poultry ask from
$3 to $5 for a sitting of eggs, aud any
where from $7 to $25 a trio for fowls,
and I think that eggs and fowls from
such yards are worth the prices asked
to those who desire lo raise fowls for
special purposes; but the beginners on
a larm in a place where theie is no mar
ket for poultry, where eggs sell for
8 or 10 cents a dozen, and where ready
money is the scarcest imaginable ar
ticle, cannot at.ord to indulge in $3-a-dozen
eggs, and $10-a-trio fowls.
In many small country towns in tho
West $3 will buy ten common hens and
a rooster, amLthat number of fowls will
furnish all the egg3 and chickens need
ed for home consumption in a family of
six. Ten common hens will, with only
ordinary care and food, lay 1,000 eggs
and raise 100 chickens in a year; amf I
venture to say that for the farmer who
only desires to produce eggs and fowls
for home use. a tlock of common hens
will, if given the same food and care
that one would feel obliged to bestow
upon more expensive fowls, prove quite
as profitable as any of the pure breeds.
I know of one flock of twenty common
hens that produced $15 worth of egga
during the months of May, June and
July. They were fed with wheat bran
dough in the morning, oats or corn at
night, all the sour milk they could
drink, had free range over as much of
creation as they chose to travel over,
and roosted under a rickety old shed-at
night. It would not be an "easy matter
tor some of our fancy fowls to show a
better record under the circumstances.
Our common hens may be irreatly im
proved in point of size by always taking
care to select the largest and best to
keep for breeders. The laving quali
ties can also be improved by setting
eggs from the hens that are known to
be the best layers. On farms where this
course has been steadily pursued vear
after year, the fowls have greatly in
creased in size, and rival the Leghorns
and Ham burgs in egg production.
Our common fowls are extremely
hardy, often escaping the ills that af
flict their aristocratic relatives, good
foragers, good sitters, excellent moth
ers, and remarkable for early maturity;
these are good qualities that" we cannot
afford to lose. Believe me, it will pay
to care for and improve the common
fowhj. Fanny Field, in Prairie Farmer.

grandpa, and turned about.
The wagon was empty; no Bab' Belle
'She has jumped outto hide for fun,"
said grandpa. 'Here, Be le! Belle!
But there was no an-wor. The child
could scarcely have climbed out without
assistance: but they searched the gar
den aud the house, in which she might
hae hidden herself, though she had
never played such a joke before.
Grandpa being questioned, admitted
that Belle had olVcuded him. and thai
he had not spoken to her all the way
home, to punish her, and repented in
dust and ashes; but that did uot tell
them where Baby Belle was to be found.
The consternation of the household was
terrible. Everyone went out. The toad
was searched inch by inch, back to the
very gate of Belle's home, and no tra:-e
of her was found. Every one who lived
along the road had been s; oken to, and
there seemed to be an awful mystery
about her disappearance.
The most terrible idea occurred to the
old gentleman. She had fallen into the
lake which he had passed, as we have
said; and his fit of temper had been the
death of his darling.
And now the parents were aroused,
and the awful story was told to them.

father, choking with grief.

up his hands, "no use at all."'
But what was that that struck his
fingers? He looked up.
Overhead hung a bundle of some sort.
He gave a shout Every one rushed to

big plaid shawl, full of something solid

And down she came into fond, tender
arms, that held her close wlfle tears fell
over her. But the first Hush of joy
being over, curiosity was aroused.
Who hung you there. Baby Belle?'
the asked her.

child, in her own solem.i little way. I

How Maine Lumbermen Live.
An interesting souvenir comes from
the lumber woods of the North in the
form of a communication written very
legibly on a fine sheet of lreh bark and
incased in an en elope composed of the
.-ame material. The letter is dated

As it is the fate of most of the women
of to-day to have charge of a house, is
it not proper that each should under
stand the duties entailed by her posi
tion? Housekeeping should soften the char
acter, and while attending to the wants
of others, we should learn pattern e and
charity. "That charity that thtnketh no
evil." I am not one of those who think
that because a woman has a husband
who is inclined to be disagreeable, she
should constitute herself h s meek and
humble servant. Yet we all know that
there is work to be done that can only
be done by a woman, but there is no
necessity for fretting about it. How
many faces once lovely, how many
amiable dispositions become entirely
transformed from constant repinings at
what can not be helped.
Domestic avocations, if properly en
gaged in, will not injure the doer. Such
a life affords opportunities for excellent
discipline, ami every woman should
make it the aim and purpose of her life
to attain perfection in her home. A
day for mending, a day for washing,
another for ironing, for sewing, and so
on, and at ouce the work becomes sim
plified and less of a hardship. ' Oh.
clear, to-morrow is wash-day! How 1
hate it!" This is a common saying,
and there is nothing very wrong about
it, for no one will assert that washing is
an agreeable pastime. Yet it must be
done, so it is worse than useless to fret
over it; as a consequence every sensi
ble woman should determine to'look on
the bright side of the wash-tub and
soapsuds. Make a few good rules and
keep them. Determine not to put the
whole house 111 disorder and to make
every one else miserable, because the
clothes must be washed, the bread

As he is in a lively mood, cold meat and
sauce will not in the least cool his ardor,
and he will 1 nd as much enjoyment iu
the meat as though it were "nice and
warm. It is also most probable that
the stimulating effects of the home
ward journey are all sullit lent without
any addition" from a "woman's tongue."
We all know women who are constantly
linding fault with something or other,
and who are never happy unless there is
something to scold about. But every
such little worry, every harsh word,
even disagreeable look", makes life
harder, and but deepens the lines of
trouble about the eyes aud mouth.
There are plenty of real troubles to be
met with, without allowing household
cares to become a source 01 torment.
A well-ordered home and a happy one
is oue of the blessings of earth, and it
is a blessing easily obtained. A well
ordered house does not necessarily im
ply a place where the chairs and tables
are never dusty, the tloors never soiled.
A place, in fact, where a man cannot
walk without doing some damage.

place too awfully nice for common mor
