occupy llie offices  which they supposed they had  won  in many cases by their won  derfully perfected system of bii  bery and intimidation  It must  be bitterness it sclf to see the  fruits of that hard earned butdee   h  stained victory snatched away  at the very moment when th ey  were about to enter upon the en  joyment of   them  But Mi  Blaine should endeavor to contain    liimsclf  lie has too much serious  business on hand  if he would  save Ins party from Grantism  to  waste his streiif th in idle lamen  tations over an accomplished fact  or foolish protests against the  verdict fashioned and shaped by     bt   C   TTstitution and laws of the  State  He should  at all events   not seek to shelter in  that refuge  of lies  erected for the benefit of  the conspiritors who engineered  the Presidential Brand  It is  frail protection   and nobody  looked upon it  while it was in  process of construction  with  more profound contempt than Mr  Blaine  He did some tellinj  work for Hayes in the canvass   but he did it manfully and honor   ably  He had nothing to do  with the Fraud beyond voting  with his party to count the false      returns for Ha  es  It is no se   cret that he believed the votes o   Louisiana belonged to Tildcn   but he never agreed  like Mr   Conkling  to say so in the Senate   nor did he find it nece ssary to  skulk in the cellar while the crimt  was being enacted above stairs  He was but a silent  and  we  firjBli   i iJi ve   a somewhat re  luctant helper in that great iniqui   ty  and there is no good reason  why he should now stoop to soil  himself  further with the filth ol  it  He understood it at the time   as he understands it now  and he  is as false to himself as he is re   creant to the truth when he  shouts such w retched wash as  this from his Augusta speech     hich he dignifies with the title    nth point     Lthe Democrats who  late over this infa   I ish to come out  of it  are in  it off against  allege  the   Rcpubl          tffe  Demo   crats  Well   Certainly  Maine  Republicans did not cheat Louisi   ana Democrats  and even if some  body else had done so  Maine  Republicans ought not to be  made a vicarious sacrifice  But  there was a cheat in Louisiana   the bulldozers anil murderers of  that State w cre warned by law  that wherever they wrought vio   lence in a parish  and destroyed  the right and power of peaceful  voting  the parish should be  thrown out  This was the law   whether wise or unwise was not    for us to determine  But it was   the I AW  and the enforcement of  that law defeated Mr  Tilden and  elected President Hayes  But  where on earth is the analogy to  sustain a fraud in Maine  unless  you consider it good morals to  steal my purse because you tlhnk  an acquaintance of mine robbed    our friend in Louisiana     Nobody knows better than Mr         Blaine that the eight to ten thou   v     sand Tilden majority in Louisiana  was  lo  wiped out in accordance    with the law  The law did  to   be sure  give the Returning Board  power to determine judicially con    __  C   ning the validity of polls where  intimidation or violence prevailed  and materially affected the result   But no such questions arose in re   gard to that election  No such  question could arise e xccpt upon  the certificate of the supervisor   supported by the affidavits of  three electors  transmitted with  and attached to the returns  and  in no single instance w ere such  certificates or affidavits made   The election was absolutely peace   ful  There was no charge or sus   picion of riot or bulldozing   There w as not even a knock  down reported from end to end  of the State  Although the State  and Federal officials and the elec   tion officers were all Republicans   and were supplemented by depu   ty marshals and soldiers  not a  single arrest w as made on that    day  The returns  ma de out by  Republican officials  were regular   formal  and uncontested  and they  footed up from eight to ten thou   sand majority for the Tildcn elec   tors  TnVfeUirning Board had  no power or right to institute any     of we  ilth niul office  and the   jromise of pioleglion  were held  out to the four knaves who had  the votes in their clutches   and  ten thousand citizens of Louisiana  weie disfranchised by a tribunal  w hich had no jurisdiction to hear   i charge  much less to e xclude a  vote    There is no kind of similitude  between that case in Louisiana  and this case  in Maine  Wells   and the notorious rogues as socia   ted with him threw out the Til  den votes arbitrarily  corruptly   and in the very teeth of the law  which made them a Returning  Board  Gov  Garcelon and hi    Council  on the other hand  reject   Mr  Blaine s returns because they  are  latally defective   not mere   ly irregukir  but illegal  against  the statute  and barred by the  Constitution  What else could  they do   Were they to admit  returns which were not returns   W ere the Constitution and laws  of Maine to be set aside in order  to put Mr  Blaines friends in of   fice   Or were the State officers  bound in this  as in all other in   stances  to obey their oaths and  do their sworn duty   They did  not  like Wells and Anderson   undertake to inquire into the char   ges of bribery and intimidation   because  like Wells  they had no  legal right to do that  Had the  case been otherwise  however   and had the law directed them to  deal judicially with these ques   tions  the judgment would cer   lainl   have cut deeper and hurt  worse  Mr  Blaine should be  thankful that he comes off so easi   ly   he should  at all events  com   pose himself sufficiently to speak  ihe truth when he has so little to     AVII   T A   MtTAlN  MAX WOU

Dairy Max vge me nt ix Win   ter    Dairymen are learning  every year more and more about  their business  It used to be  considered good management for  dairymen to get through the win   ter with as little expenditure of  food as possible  It was a coiri   mon thing for a smart one to  boast how cheaply he had carried  his herd through the cold season   principally on straw  saying     They are a little thin  but they  will pick up when the grass  comes   This man did not seem  to realize that the  picking up   would all be e xpendcd on the re  covery of lost condition  and that  very little milk would be produc   ed while this was going on  Most  dairymen have learned ere this   that a cow in poor condition in  spring will yield a comparatively  poor return of milk through the  season  They have learned that   something never comes from  nothing   and that no policy is  more suicidal for a dairyman than  to winter his cows on innutritious  food  so as to reduce their flesh   Every dairyman  who has observ   ed the effect of condition on the     faults in our management  The  s  yfing effected would be found  large  The influence exerted by  so doing would accomplish great  good  It should be borne in  mind  that time is money  What   ever tends to take up your time  unnecessarily is realy a waste of  money  The amount of loss  will be just as much as we could  earn in the time needlessly e x   pended at the current rates paid  for such kind ol labor      EDUCATIONAL       Eiom the Xiitloniil Elve Stock  louniol j   Keep Teats Dry    In the case  of late  or early  calves and foals   a warm stall or box should be se   cured  if the dam is allowed to do  the nursing  In the same way  the bands should be kept dry in  milking cow s in the cold season   and the filthy practice of flipping  the hands in the milk cannot be  too strongly condemned  Wet   ting of the teats means evapora   tion  chilling  inflamation  chap   ping   followed by trouble in  milking

encouraging superior quality  in our beef cattle  mutton sheep   and in our hogs  for comparative   ly few American feeders have as  yet gone too far in this direction   Some have  probably  already  carried the refinii  g process too  far  but these are mainly among  the breeders of pure bred stock   rather than among the feeders for  our meat markets  The great   majority of the latter could add  to their profits by looking to fur   ttlier improvement in the form and  quality of their feeding  stock    LifiimxG Stai I p s    Stables  should be moderately well lighted   but we should avoid throwing the   Jirect rays of the  sun on the  ilioriM   s eyes in front  If too  dark  the eyes become habituated  to this and in the absence of the  customary stimulus of light  be   come less abe to bear it   and  when suddenly taken into the  glare of sunshine  and e pecially  of sunshine reflected from the  winter s snow  they are liable to  suffer from Mi ritation and inflam   mation  If  on the other hand   the light falls directly on the  ho  se s eyes from a window in  front  the constant glare may of  itself injure the eyes  In the one  case  we have the condition of  horses in mines  where the dark   ness and inevitably accompanying  damp  lead to an extensive prev   alence of blindness   in the other  we have that  of the glass blower  or iron puddler  whose bleared  eyes betray his occupation  The  light should be abundant  but  should fall from windows placed  behind or to one skic of the sta   bles  and not in front    Vermin on Stock    Dnlcss  the stock is kept in good condi   tion and cleanly  vermin are far  more liable to accumulate in win   ter than in summer  This is not  only the case in reference to hen  lice  which swarm in dirty hen   roosts  and by their attacks on  birds and quadrupeds worry their  victims out of all grOwth and im   provement   hut certain other  acari attacking the legs of horses   cattle  and sheep  often suspend  active operations  ascend upon  the hairs and give rise to no ir   ritation during the warm season    and it is only on the return of  winter that they return to the  skin and produce their character   istic form of mange  The closer  and the filthier the barn  the  more troublesome will be these  pests   while cleanliness and a  wash with a weak solution of to   bacco will usually put a period to  their ravages  So it is with lice  and ringworm  which increase in  proportion to the closeness and  uncleanliness of jjic buildings     FOR COMMONWK U TII  S  VrroRNEY  r ii r l   1   We me authorizrd to announce lion    J  fl    of milk after Calvillg  kllOWS   that e xtra flesh represents an e x   tra yield of milk  It is not diffi   cult to determine  very closely   how much milk every pound of  extra flesh and fat represents  A  deep milker is very apt to draw  SO heavily upon her own flesh as  to become thin at the end of the  season  having used all the extra  food consumed during the sum   mer in the secretion of milk  be   sides her extra flesh during the  spring  If a cow has accumu   lated lOO lbs  of extra flesh or  fat during the winter  she will  yield  if a good milker  at least  500 lbs  more milk during the  season  or 5 lbs  of milk for one  of e xtra flesh or fat   Vc think  6 lbs  of milk to one of flesh is  nearer the actual yield  The dai   i   m in  therefore  who docs not  feed his cows well through the  winter  is not only unmindful of  the comfort of his cow s  but is  cheating himself out of the profits  of the next  season      JAe  Jam      Needless Inconyeniences       Vc think  perhaps  some   of our  readers have seen thiiig s  similar  to those described in the follow   ing  from the experience of a  writer in the Country Gentleman   Any person possessed of ordi   nary powers of observation can   not fail to discover a great deal  of unnecessary work  which  bj   a little forethought  might be  dispensed with  I do not now  speak of those who tail to pro   vide themselves with proper im   plements for doing work  and in  this way waste time enough each  year to more than replace them  with the best and most improved  patterns  I intend to speak ol  inconveniencics  some of which  exist on almost every farm  All  are said to have their failures in  some particular  no matter how  well arraged their business may  he as a whole  I have seen  premises apparently well or   dered otliewise  which were pro   vided with neither post nor hook  where a visitor could hitch a  horse  Not one in a hundred is  provided with a horse shed  I  know an old man  now fourscore   who has always drawn his man   ure and produce through a deep  slough between his barn and field   Ten dollars expended in labor        d have made a good road   The saving in a single year would  have more than repaid the outlay   to say nothing of the increased  comfort of all concerned  A  neiglibo r has four years drawn his  hay on wood wagons which would  not carry more than half a load   The extra time wasted in loading  and unloading  every year  would  furnish good hay racks    I knew a man who drew all  the water for Ids stock in a leaky  milk can attached to a rope   More than half of the water es   caped before reaching the trough    I once knew a whole neighbor   hood who depended on one long  cart which went the rounds as  each one hauled out manure  or  did any work which required a  cart to be tilted  1 have walked  hundreds of miles out of my  way  when tired  to avoid a  stream which lay between the  house and pasture  We after   ward bridged  it at few dollars  expense  I have kno vvn a whole  highway district to turn out for  years to avoid a stone  which  has since been removed at  an expense of only eight cents   These arc only a few of the mark   ed instances which have come  under my observation  No one  can fail in looking about him to  detect a mulitude of similar cases   Although each may be only a  trifle in itself   he aggregate is in   ormoivs  The  remedy ith   each and all otj us to c      Valiio of lliis Yoiir  s Ci oii s    The Commissioner of Agriculture  has finislietl and will publish in a  few

 300 000 00 1  The  total corn crops is about 1 700 000 000  busliels against 1 430 000 000 last  year  Tlie wheat yield this year   while larger in busliels than last  year  rec  ives its increased

evening than  any of them  She is about si x  feet in height when in repose  but  when her frame is charged with  emotions  or she gets mad or ex   cited  she seems to raise right up  out of the stage and telescope un   til she is eighteen or nineteen  feet high  and others on the st age  look like dwarfs    She is the most versatile actress  we ever sat in frc nt of  At times  she would put on a sweet  lovely  look and you would have to be  held by two persons to keep you  from rushing on the stage and  telling her you loved her like a  steam engine   and then she would  put on a dying look  and a wild   scared  desperate expre ssion  so  you would want to rush out after  a doctor    At times we would give a mil   lion dollars   in notes   to be in  the place of Clifford  who didn t  seem to know that she wanted  him to hug her  and then when  she got sassy at him  and began  to roll her e  es  and her breast  began to heave  and she began  to swallow something  and look  as though she was d  ing for a  drink  we would not have been in  reach of her for eight hundred  dollars    It was a singular study when  her breast got to heaving  She  must have a suit of lungs like a  blacksmith s bellows  and when  in her excitement  she would ex   haust them  she would  look so  thinthatyou could trace her wish  hone with the naked c  e  but  when in her passion  her lungs  became inflated  her bust round   ed out and her dress fitted her  like the paper on the wall  and  all she lacked was her own natu   ral Mary Anderson  smile to make  the average man give a Pacific   railroad if she were his    Again  in the matter of weep   ing she holds over them all  It  is said that Mary has never been  in love  and knows nothing of  that holy passion e xccpt what  she has been told  If such is the  case she has had the best teacher  in the world  tor her love making  is the most perfect ever seen upon  any stage    If we have said enough to  show that we consider Mary An  derson the best on the stage  in  our awkward way  then that is  all riglU  That is what we start  ed out to do      WKKK OF l KA JAMARY   4 Ki  1   The following is the programme  adopted by the

  From     Sterling  Kentucky      RKSTITl IION    it is stated that there is great  destitution prevailing in the  mountain counties of this  State   especially about the head waters  of the Kentucky River  There  has not been water sufficient in  the river to bring out the produce  of that section  and as a conse  qucnce there has been no demand  for labor  The result is they  have nothing with which to buy  their meager supplies  Children  are barefooted  thinly clad  and  half fed  while their mothers and  fathers are almost in despair  The  present rise in the river will bring  them some relief  but not such as  will keep them from perishing  should the water become severe   An effort should he made here in  this city to aid them in supplies   Cast off clothing  old sliocs  or  any of

      This novel is chiefly remarkable  for the dramatic impetuosity of pas   sionjand ol action which pervade it  It i r  sents scarcely more than two  characters of novelty to those who  are acquaintetl with the many  works of this prolitic author  Sir  Henry ljt e can be said to rt semble  the Baron of Bradwardine  without  the broad shade s of his eccentricity   and the lovely maid  his daughter   Alice  is moulded in many respects  on the engaging character of Flora  Mac Ivor  without that intense and  elevated enthusiasm by which the  Scotish heroine was distinguished   The most prominent iiersons in tin  story are decidedly Cromwell and  Roger Wildrake   one the rej resen   lation  if an individual  the other of  a class  The character of the form   er is portraye l in a masterly style   The author follows the best author   ities in representing Cromwell a  an enthusiast  whom the sincert  proli ssion of  pertain religious tenet  and the political activity springing  out of them  had tirst raised to emi   nence among his equals  but who  then  becoming fired by ambition  and success  followed up those ten   ets  and exagerated his i rofession  of them  not because they tifforded  him any sidritual happiness  but as  they supplied him with the most  efficacious insliuments for the pro  mofioMofhis power  Some of the  I  s ser fwituns in Cromwell s char   acter are also developed in  Wood  stock   with great felicity  such as  his confused style of eloquence   when he wished to mystify his au   ditors  and to refrain from commit   ting himself  that occasional men   tal inebriety that urged him him to  issue orders  of which  in a cooler  moment  he repenterl   and that se   cret remor se  which  even in the  height of his power  perpetually re   minded him of his share in the trag   ical death of his King    Wildrake is a perfect picture of  his class  with not a singjt ouch of  exaggeration  He is one of the loy   al  im  overished  gay  liffffious  gentlemen of that day  wakc  from  the tomb  and presented to uVa t the  most racy period of his TM  nce   Faithful under every circuOdance   to young Charles  and yet accepts  favors from any one who is disposed  to offer them  and ready to under   takeany service for friend or enemy   provided it will afford him the  means of renewing his inveterate  habit of di s8ipation  Scott  in this  work especially  shows a thorough  knowlerlge of Sluikespear  Many  of the idioms  which contribute to  give the language its peculiar tone   are traceable to the Poet of Avon   To our mind the introduction of the  Restoration disturbs the unity of the  story  It is quite a new  scene has   tily gotten up  and requires the im   agination to pass in an instant from  the year Ki    to 1060  It does not  harmonize with the train of feelings  which had been awakened by the  previous current of the  story    The beauty and grace of Alice are  ina great measure  disenchanted of  their effect  by the new situation in  which we find her at the close of  the book  surrounded by chubby  children  and herself no longer that  fair vision whom we met in the  early part of the work  and followed  with  so much interest until she dis   appeared from the Lodge  the guide  and protector of her sovereign  Be   fore leaving this book we feel dis   posed to give a brief sketch of the  character of  Sir Henry I  ee  The  portra yal of this old cavalier is more  worthy of consideration  as it seems  to be an attempt at the union of the  rediculous with the sublime  which  has been so successfully accomplish   ed by this author  With many  writers a rediculous character is al   ways rediculous  and laughter must  still accompany his exits and en   trances  But the author of Wood   stock understood his art better  and  had real human nature to more pur   pose  and in this regard he has evi   dently taken Shakespear as his  guide  Men are not all weakness  or all fortitude  all folly or all wis   dom  all dignity or all absurdity   According as circumstances sum   mon their different qualities into  action  their conduct and demeanor  may at one time be laughable and  rediculous  and at another noble  and magnanimous  It is this blend   ed character  whose opposite pecu   liarities contrast each other  that  most sensibly affect a reader  The  freaks of a man from whom we  look for nothing but what is redicu   lous  are stale and tame  compared  with the exhibitions ol vanity  self   importance  or irritability  which  e scape from men of sober tempers  and dignitied demeanor  On the  other hand  manifestation of feel  ing by the morose or light hearted   ofilignity and fortitude on great oc   casions  by persons at other times  I rwliculous  are jirecisely what a    reader of human jr ature likes and  j appreciates  The unexpected de     velopment of a better heart over     powers our prejudices  and conduct  that is great in itself becomes yet  greater from
