It was on the 2oth of December that father and Ichabod had to go to Loft's Corners, as the hamlet was called, on business. Mother wasn't feeling very well at the time, and I could see ,he didn't like to have father go, although she didn't say so, but looked brave and sweet as she bade him good-by- e and said: 'God bless you, and keep you both,' and then father held her iu his arms a moment, and ' Ichabod 'hugged her like a bear,' Zeke said, and they were off.

The butter globule iie to the top of the mixture because their specific gravity is less than the solution in which they "are suspended. Now the separation of tho butter globules by centrifugal force is based upon the principle of increasing their sjiecific gnnity: If new milk is cooled to a low degree the watery solution spoken of is cooled sooner than the butter globules are, and the difference in gravity is thus increased in favor of the globules. Hence the cream rises up quickly. The of centrifugal force, therefore, U intended to increase this difference of spec-ilk-gravity, and it does it very much more quickly than any other means.

At the end of our late war, a ywittK man was graduated at the top o", his class, at W.-- t Point, and a friew said to him: "Well, X.. your career of course." "I am not so sure of that," was the reply; "I have graduated at tlie top of my class, it is tre, but there is Grant, you know, who graduated at the bottom of his, and lie toft quite a failure in life." Moreover, and apart from all this, the fact remains that some minds niatMe more slowly than others, and .ome acquire much more slowly, while acquiring with admirable certainty, and knowledge most profitably. Thes? miss examinations frequently, and are not the worse, but tho better for missing them, because there is prolit for such minds in going twice over given ground. In any case a failure in examination is not disgraceful, and k is false and hurtful for pareuls and teachers to treat it as if it wore iu some way shameful. That way disaster lies. --V Y.

An .- a girl ctv making for a farm having SOU rods of fence, a waste of 200 square rods, or l acres, and for the State, 200.000 acres, which, at 10 an acre, make an investment in land occupied by fences of $8,000,000. Look at it as wo will, fencing is an expensive luxury, and a little thought bestowed upon the subject must make it apparent to every reflecting farmer that the most, important question in regard to fencing is how to get along with the least of it. If fences must be built it pays to make good ones, and withal ag cheap aa possible. A jioor fence, like a broken beam, is a deception and a snare, having the appearance of protection but without any. There is no single kind of fence which would be best everywhere. The style to be preferred must depend oi localit3', and the materials that can bo made available. Where rails of lasting timber are within reach they are the cheapest and best, but they are not to lie had everywhere. In other localities posts and boards are the best that can be used, and failing of these, posts aud wire must be resorted to. However, the real question as already said is not so mueh how fence can best le made as how one can best get along without it. Fences, as shown above, are expensive convenience to lie avoided wherever this is possible. Some feneo, farmers who keep stock think they must have, but it is wise to reduce the necessity for the smallest possible rtfliount,' especially permanent fences which become a nuisance by being rigjdly.in the wav, and a fruitful resort for.propagatiiig all sorts of trees and buShc'sY and foul weeds to grow and ripen their seeds to scatter over tho adjacent fields. By having fences movable so that their site may le cultivated occasionally, such unsightly and contaminating accumulations may be wiped away. Prof. L. IS. Arnold, 'in N. Y. Tribune. 100-acre fences of $20,180,000, to say nothing about the 10,000,000 acros of woodland? and othor lands included in the farms. If the fenccs along the highway are counted with the rest it would probably be s tfe to say that one-ha-lf the fences in the State are continued from the force of habit rather than from economy, making a leak from the pockets of New York farmers of some S10. 000,000 a year, the waste of ground the fences occupy, which is no inconsiderable item. Tho waste of land will vary with the sU le of fence. The average is a strip of land of a rod wide, s for interest and repair of m PORK-MAKIN- 1". Independent. G.
