He had a little shop in the out skirts of the village, whci'c ho shaved açd thumped away, early and late. A more honest man never lived—or, at least, he was as honest as man need be. lie owned a respectable dwelling and a few ivcrcs of land, and he kept a pig, and some hens, and a cow—this bi nte property being under the especial j: are or Mrs, Jo.scpl\i\s Allen, It was generally acknowledged that nobody's pig was so sleek and fat as was Mrs,. Allen's, nobody's eggs were so li^rge and so snre to be fiesh, and nobinly's butler was so fresh and so yellow. 'This is ^frs. Joseph us Allen's pork.' This is Mrs Ji^ephus Allen's butter." "Mrs, Allen brought these eggs in," Let the shopkeeper thus announce, and the things Were bouj^ht immediately. And Josephus hitnself occupied a place oqu.Vlh' firm ifi the conlidëïicè of îns fellows. His word was as good as a bond, arid his Work was in demand.  One spring Josephus met, With a sad misfortune. Ilis cow b>'okè through the floor of the barn and broke her leg -broke it so badly that mending was out of the question. What should he do for .another cow?  "You must go and buy one," said his  "But cows must be high at this season.  "Nevermind. A cow we must have; You ought to get a good one for fifteen dollars—a good new-milch cow."  "Ah-but the fifteen dollars, Mrs. Allen.  /'l ean let you have ten of it-ten dollars that r have laid up from the sale of butter and eggs."  Thus furnished with the "sinevvs" of trade, Josephus started forth in search of a cow, and after tramping a! whole day without fiudinc: what he sought, he finally brought up at Mr. John, Pot-' man's. He had seen many just such cows a3 he wanted, but they were nôt able to be bought, lîe had thus far avoided Mr Potman, because he had no very ffood opinion of that individual's honesty. In fact he new that John Potman Was a man who cheated when he could. But he concluded to take a look at Potman's stock, trusting that he new enough about cows to take care of himself.  John Potman was a farmer, and did considerable business in -buying and selling cattle, and he also loaned money to needy men at exorbitant rates  Tjfintercstr—--—  OonsTimption, Rheumatism,  £cr0fula  Hior.MAS StCo'R (ÎKNriKBMKninvM.

When he loaned money he wanted a right-out-bill-of-sale of some good property, and thus did mtich stock, in horses, oxen and cows, fall into liis hands.  It was in the morning when Josephus called upon Mr, Potman, and wlien he had made known his want,  Jo^epjitia walked around tho^ çow âeveràl times, and finally asked her price.: . • .. ^  -i ought tû have dölläfsi  îïr.

Joaephüa  [)aid the tnoney, and drove the cow iome. H^o did not want the calf, bo that y^ry night he sold it to ajneigliljor, who wanted to mate onó that ho al-rettdy-owBéd?  On tho foljowuig morning tho cow wasMlked^ the  pasture. Tho quantity given du tliis momiiig was remarkably smallf bwt then, it wag not to bo womlered at. The cow probably missed her calf and had eaten nothing. At night however, after cropping tholtender grass all day, she would be saro to give a good account of herself.  During tho afternoon Amos Bean dropped in at tho cooper'a shop. Amos was a neighbor, and a very warm friend.' He was a farmer in a small way, sometimes working at liotrse building. He soon learned that Josephus had purchased a cow of John Potman.  "I don't uniierstUnd it," said Amos "Potmgn is buying good cows. I heard him 8aj% only two days agoj that he wanted ioiir inor-e tnore good milkers for his dairy. What did you pay him "Fifteen dollars."  "Cheap enough at thiP, season for a good coW. MowcVeri it may bo all  right^^------------------  In the evehihg tho cow camo fiotti tho pasture Avtth abotit as latik aii udder as she had carried away in the ihofhiiig, and riot over a quart of milk could be obtained from her. Mrs. Josephus was horror-stricken, while Josephus himself stood aghast,,  What could it mean ? The pasture was one of the best in the country, and the grass was green and tender.  Just thyi A^ Bean camc along again. He had feared sopiethiiig wrong from the first. He instituted thorough examinatioUj and pretty soon an exclamation of astonishment signified that he had found the "mice."  "Look here i" said he, pulling open the. cow's tnouth.  Jos^phiiE! looked, and found the animal aliildGt toothless 1 Tho frOnt' teeth were all gone !  "But." hs gasped, ."it can'J. bo her age. Her horns don't show it."  "Don't they ?" echoed Amos ; "look a little closer The upper ends have been scraped down, and the surface colored 1 The ¿at is out. The cow has been a good milker, but she's got bravely over it now. She must be along towards twenty years old ; and I guess tlmt for some years she's been fed on swill."  Josephus was beside himself with pain and mortification.  "By the jumpin' Johnathan 1" ho swore; "I'll go hack to John Potman directly. I'll make him take the cow and return my money, and I'll tell him just what I think of him 1"  "Don't do any such thing," said Amos, "Potman would orily laugh at you. It was jvhat ho would call a fair trade; and if you got cheated he would say it was your own faujt I know him very well. If there's a way which we can come jjp.,_jiiiUUlia-old rascal, I'll study it \)ut. Just keep o(uiet until to-morrow, and let me think the matter over. Don't say a word to anybody."  Josephus promised that he would obey the instri'ictions of his friend, and  had not gone biit a few steps,however, when ho heard his name pronounced. ; "Mr. Bean .Ah—stop a moment. You spoke of a cow."  It was John Potman, Amos had jj|f^cqtofl| thisj fpr.ho know tU^ttho .old, rascal etill wanted two or three gdod milkers. "Yea, sir," said Bean. "What have you got "A cow that has been left with me by 4 friegd \vho wants money." "What isQhe r "Oome and see for yourself." " "Wiieft'ia she?"- T- -- -"She will be in my Jard atiianddifrn  "I'll come and see her." That evening, when Amos drove liia cattle up from the pasture, he turned the old cow out into tho yard witb them. A handsomer brindle, in the fading daylight, was ncVer seen; her horns were dark and glossy» and her bag was so full that the milk ran out from the teats in streams. In a little w]iilo„Mrul PMman_camo.-_ J^^  Tte imr-eeoper did not sleep a wink all that night. The loss of his money was something to one in liiS situation; but that %vas as. nothing comparea with the' outrage which he felt had been put upon him. Ilis wife, too, worried a great deal; for she supposed the purchase money of the cow was al-  fe was informed fhat hp had-etime  at the cow and was favorably impressed. He looked at the distended lidder, and nodded with satisfucÎioEr  "How old is she ?" he asked.  "I think. sho is eight this Spring," replied Amos.  "What is the price ?"  "Twenty-five dollars."  "That's too much."  "Very well—I didn't ask you to buy."  "But—I should like just such a co^, if I could got her at a fair price. Let's have a look at her mouth." .  "There it is," said Amos, and he felt perfectly safe saying so ; for he had handled the cow's inouth" until she Would . hdve it handled no uiorc. In short slie Was afraid of pain.  Potman made several attempts to look into ter muwtli, ijut was forced to give it up as a bad job.  ^ "I guess you'll find it all right," said Amos, as he drew up the stool and prepared to milk the aged animal.  Mr; Potm an stood by ami—saw^ ihtr cow milked. He saw <a largo wooden pail filled to the brim, atid then a small tin pail fillëd besîdës." It was tlietarg^ est quantity of milk he had ever seen from one cow at one milking.  "Does she usually give aa much aa that?"  "I don't think I ever milked less from her at aii evening's liiilking," > replied Anma, as ho ttfdse. and kicked the stool back.  "But twenty-five dollars is rather high." ^ ^  "Well—what of it ? You ain't got to pay for lier. I don't think Setïi r^olsom will grumble at the price. If ho does, he ain't the man I take him for."  Amos had turned to go in the house, when Pofman called htm back.  "Is twcniy-live dollars tile least you'll take for that cow ?"  "Yes, .sir."  "And I can have her for that ?"  "I said so."  "Then she is mine." -  And John Potman gave Bean twen-five dollars, and drove homo the cow. After tea Amos went to the village and gave Josephus the money ho obtained tor the cow, —  "But,", said the cooper, opening his eyes with wonder, "I can't tato all this."  "It's all yours," returned AmoSi "It's just what Potman paid me for the cow. I told him I was selling it for a friend."  By nine o'clock the story had leaked out in Stanley's store ; andf?i>efore the villagers separated for the night it had been pretty thoroughly circulated. It was as good as a holiday ; for the people knew Potman's deceitful, niggardly character, and it was refreshing to imaw^thàt-fbr-oTice-bè'had-ireen-forced-to put on the tight boot.  The following day was a rainy one and when Mr, Potman's cows came in from the pasture, he fancied that his new purchase had changed color moet marvelously.

From the first day of Apnl 1864, to iJie aame date 1865, the products sold from the fowls amounted .to forty three dollars and ihirtcen cents. Wo used in the family about half the chick-eus. and all the eggs we wanted. .1  put tho hen manure ,pn corn, ab'oiit half a gill to each hill) without^ any other fertillizer87 liavThg enduglT to go over foUr acres and a hcd^ rows \vVtb6ut any manurenEhrdiigh the field for the purpose of satislying my-^ self of its eflicacy. I harvested it separate, and then weighed what grew on a like area of manured and unmanured grownr^for the- purpes^f testing it. The corn with manure ona rod weighed 36^ lbs. Thaf on a rod without ma-nm e wmglftd iT i^^ rod with manure weighed 16J Iba., without manure 13 lbs.

Come and look at her."  Juscplju.s followed Mr, Potman to the bar, v/hen the cow was pointed out. She appeared to be all that she had been represented. She had a large good fcame; was of a light red color and was in respectable flesh. The udder was a.mple, and when Josephus tried tho teat« he found that thej yiijjilod the,milkicedy.  "Of course," said Potman," there's no jnilk now, for tho calf has taken-whatbe wiin^ ami the wornan folkij LaVe got tlie rest. But you can see what she is. Did j oii ever see a better bag?"  "How much milk doe.g sho ^ give?" ask Josephus.  "I haven't had a chance to find out exactly," replied Potroan. : "rvCf .only h^ her a ft} w days, a^n run with her all of the time; biit the man I got her of told me she would give on an arerage twelve quarts at a milking, in the heiglit of feed. \f 1 hadn't already more-stock, that I can feed I wouldn't sell her at any price.

On the following morning Amos Bean came and »announced that he had thought of a plan by which Mr, John Potman could be corrected.  "I owe _the old skinflint a punishment," said he, "and if you will trust your cow in my hands, I think I'll pay him off for both you and myself. In the meantime you may take one of my cows, and use her until we can malee arrangements for getting another,"  Josephus did not stop to ask many qucHtions. He allowed Amos to take tbe-aii44q«ated^4ii«mal4uvay,aud-in -re-tiirn he brought back a good cow belonging to his friend.  Amos Bean put the old cow into a close stall, where she could not be seen by the passers-by, and one of his first manipulative operations wa?> to saw off the tips of her horns, and dark en what was left with a mixture of potash, aher v/hich he rubbed them down  of dye stuff, made of logwood and iron, carefully applied, changed the cow's color from> a light red to a beautiful brindle.
