A Story or tfceCnnneetlCBt State Prison Appropos of amelioration of discipline in the ConnecticutSta(% prison during the last thirty years, the story of Pool, of New Haven, sentenced for life for burning his .Acre. is told once more. Another man on his deathbed eon fess‘’id the crime, but Pool did not live to reap the fruits of the confession. Naturally of fine sensibilities and noble manhood, he became at last frenzied by cruel treatment, and forfeited his life.

First door south of the People’s Store, Broadway, Albert Lea* “ Hardly, but you must do it or lose his custom some other day.” “ I shall have to accommodate him, j I suppose. II he will be cheated, it can’t be helped ” On the very first bill Baker paid to his new tradesman, he obtained an abatement of one dollar and ninety cents, odd money, and actually paid three dollars more than was justly due Still he was well satisfied, imagining that he had made a saving of one dol lar and ninety cents The n*>t overscrupulous tradesman laughed in his sleeve, and kept his customer. Having withdrawn his support from Leonard, it was the candid opinion of Mr Baker that he was “gung to the dogs,” as he expressed it, about as fast as a man could go. Ile often passed tho shop, but rarely saw a customer. “ No wonder,’ he would say to himself “ A man like him can’t expect, and don’t deserve custom.” In the eyes of Mr. Baker, the very grass seemed to grow upon the pavement before the door of the declining tradesman. Dust settled thickly in his window, and the old sign turned grayer in the bleaching air. “ Going to the dogs and no wonder/’ Baker would say to himself, as he went by Ile appeared to take a strange interest in watching the gradual decay ol the mechanic’s fortunes One day a mercantile friend said to him : “ Do you know anything about this Leonard ? ” “ Why?” asked Baker. ** Because he wants to make a pretty large bill with me.” “ On time ? ** “ Yes, on the usual credit of six months.** “ Don’t scil to him. Why, the man is going to the dogs at railroad speed.” “ Indeed I ** Lv Yes. I’m looking every day to see him close up. He might have done well, for he understood his business.

Transplanting Cabbages.—Tho best cabbages we ever raised in this State were transplanted on the 8th day of July. We notice that in many instances there is a disposition to set out cabbages for wiuter use early in the season. It is better to transplant the first week in July. The time then will be ample for the plants to reach maturity iii the northwest, and they will keep through the winter without de eaying to such an extent as if transplanted so early in the season.—Farm-ers L » am. other and nerved immediately.
