October. A through the night the Subtle Frost hath plied its Mystic Art and in the Day the Golden Sun hath wrought True wonders and the wings of morn and even touched with magic breath the changing leaves. And now As wanders the dilating Eye athwart the varied landscape circling for what Blaz onry what pomp of colors burst Nob the ravished i . What a change1 has come of the face of nature t the waving forests lately Robed in deepest Green have assumed the gorgeous colouring of october the Foh does not fade brightens into the inst Days of the leaves Are their Best in Beauty Violet Pink Scarlet Crimson As if their life blood were oozing from every pore nothing but observation could teach us that All this brilliancy and glory Herald death. It would that they were entering upon a life instead of being pushed off the stage to make Way for a new generation. The year has culminated in Field and for est Ond the Farmer is gathering in his har the first frosts have come and you Aee the Small Hoar crystals glittering in the morning Sun upon the grass and along the fences. The pumpkin and Squash vines Are the first to feel its Power and the Broad eaves Droop and turn Black As the Bui comes up leaving the yellow globes and the Crook necks jail exposed. T the Farmer hardly knew How Rich he was until the Frost cleared away the luxuriant mass of foliage. Now the potato patches and the edges of the Cornfields and the gardens Are Pelow with the Row material a of pump Kins pies and thanksgiving. The Orchards eel the chill breath of the Frost and you Bear the apples dropping under aty the Trees us if seeking warmer quarters in the thick grass beneath the branches. Tho Ripples Are abundant in almost All parts of the country and the poorest families can Lay in their Winter stores of Greeni Iura pippins and Spitzenberge. An Orchard loaded with Fri Iti ripening in the october Sun is one of the finest sights in the Here is a tree blushing in every Bough with the Crimson fruit and there they hang in Long yellow Buntos waiting for the baskets. The Winter fruits Are not banned by the Early frosts and they will adhere to the branches until i is to remove them by band. The Fin going touches to the flavor of the Lite fruits Are Given in the last few Days of the season. If plucked too Early they shrivel and do not Ripen Well in the cellar or fruit room. This is the reason Rhy some condemn certain very Fine win Ter pears. In some cases the season is too Short for them to reach maturity in others they Are removed from the free foil two weeks before the close of. The season. Most of the Winter varieties of Penis and apples Ore furnished with a thick foliage which and acres longer than on the summer varieties o afford Protection to the fruit we have sometimes left the gout Morceau As Lute As the Middle of november with the Best re Cults. The picking storing and ripening of Winter fruit is an Art that cannot be Learned Bam season. With the Harvest Moon come Apple a rings and words full of meaning to the old men if not to the boys. We see of the ample Farmer s Kitchen and the Bushel baskets heaped with applet and the merry group of and lassies Wated for their work. There were at least a dozen o them gathered from the neighbors to Lew a helping hand in preparing the Apple it is now called Apple butter and by some very proper people a barrel at least was to be prepared from the Green or rather fresh pared Sweet apples and Large stores of dried apples were to be Laid up for Winter use. The head of the household As was used the paring machine with three lined Fork and knife that Cut the Akin As thin As a wafer. The pared apples Fel with wonderful rapidity into a Large tub and were thence distributed among the Young folks to be halved quartered cored and Strung upon twine about two Yards in drying. The strings of apples As they were finished were put upon Hooks in the ceiling or upon poles ready to be re moved in the morning to Adeol the House where they Bung in Graceful fes Toons the special Delight of wasps and flies. Couple the work went on merrily if not rapidly jokes flew Back and Forth some times emphasized with Apple seeds and sometimes yith something softer. Rustic awkwardness in company was happily Over come for there was a Pines for the hands and the hands had something to do. The tongues were a loosed first about the work and the company and then about some thing that might have been very hard work under other circumstances. Wholes in the pan were and disconsolate halves out of it were eventually made work and wooing went together in those Good eld times when the Kitchen was bet Ter known than the parlor and the presence of 1he old folks at Home did not spoil the Freedom and frolics of their children. The last Apple being pared and the last festoon Hung up duly in its Placer there was a resort to Fortune telling. The Rind of the Apple being passed three times round the head and dropped invariably gave the first letter in the name of the successful Lover. As the Coil of the Rind almost always made in a or something that squinted that Way it was easy to worm the secret out of the most Swain and Point out to him Bis intended Sarah and Sophia. These us ii Sci turned out Correct and were Fol Lowed by new Homes. The bookings in the Long evenings Harvest Moon were larger gatherings and not unusually cheered by the presence of the fair until supper time. From Many a old farm hons and Hamlet without Nair their m liking and their Home Tauke done the merry huskers came. Swung o or the heaped up Harvest from pitchforks in the shone dimly Down the lanterns on the pleasant scene below the growing pile of husks behind the Golden ears before. And laughing eyes and Busy hands and Brown Cheeks glimmering o or. Half hidden in a quiet Nook. Serene of look find heart their old times Over the old men sat apart while no and Down the in hiked pie or nestling in its Shade at hide and seek with Inagh and shout the Happy children in the warm fro Sticks evenings such As we often have in this month the scone was not Laid upon the barn floor but under the open by the full Moon giving plenty if Light for the buskers. When the work was done the company adjourned to the House and cakes and cheese were served up in rustic style. These bees As they were sometimes called were tiddly in their influence. They often Tiel cd a Short handed neighbor in his Harvest and were Happy social gatherings. The Modem Dan Ces already becoming too popular among our Rural population Are poor for these primitive and Ampler but More Nat ural and enjoyable festivities of the Olden time. For these there needed no display of expensive dress and dazzling jewelry which Are too often the regalia of idleness and vice. The Apple paring and the nuking Are pleasent october memo Ries with us. With a Little remodelling to adapt them to the1 changing times they ought to perpetuated among the Cher shed institutions of farm life. With our Joon Tifful nipple crop and almost unprecedented yield of Corn in All the North and have ample material and Joy us occasion to show up these institutions. Agriculturist. _ a Good anecdote is told of an old methodist preacher who Rode a circuit a to years ago. While going to one of his appointments be met an old acquaintance who was one of the magistrates of the coun try. He asked the minister Why he did not do As the Saviour an said the.

Now Kitty hurry and get Kitty needed no bidding. The Tittle table was covered As if the Lucious butter the Snow White bread he tempting reserves soon invited the Trio to dinner.

Child said her where have you been f Kilty made no reply but seeking her own Little chamber she threw herself of the bed and wept for almost an hour she wept for almost an hour she wept and then said he will come again Row. That night wild dreams flitted through Kitty Clyde s head she dreamed she was Bride but there was no bridegroom. So overpowered was she by her emotions that the awoke just As the Sun came peeping in the Little window. Kitty was More than usually brisk that morning for she longed for the time to come for her to meet Harry again. Takin Down her Bosket from its porch and her Rod from behind the door she wandered through the Meadow toward the there she sat waiting till noon and Harry bad not come. Well hell be Here at Sunset thought Kitty As she sauntered toward Home. Sun set brought no Harry but on the Rock Lay a note which Kitty hastily opened. It was Short and precise. F do not me.

Kitty soon found pen Ink and paper and wrote this note me at the Rock to mor Row at Sunset Kitty. Folded and dispatched Kitty soon went to net. The next evening arraying herself in a Blue Muslin with Quick Steps she reached the Rock. Soon As she was Harry was there before her. She sprang to Bis arms and Hying her head upon his Manly som wept the Moonlight discovered them sitting together and talking very ear what they said i do not know that Jarry did not go to sea and that Kitty Joyde changed her name to Kitty Jones. Walking leaves of Australia almost everybody has heard of the won Kerful walking leaves of Australia. For a Ong the discovery of that Island Many people really believed that the leaves of a certain tree which flourishes there could walk about the ground. The Story arose n this some English sailors landed m the coast one Day and after running it until they were tired they Sot Down under a tree to rest themselves. A puff of wind came along and blew off a Shower of eaves which after tin n the air As leaves c oing Over and Over generally do finally reste.1 upon the ground. As it was mid Zinmer and everything appeared quite teen the circumstances puzzled the sailors anal Demauy but their Surprise was much renter As you Well suppose when of or a Short time they saw the leaves crawl no along the ground toward the trunk of be tree. They ran at once for the vessel without stopping to inquire into the matter at and and set sail from the land where everything seemed to be bewitched one of m men said that be expected every moment to ree the set to and dance a subsequent exploration of Australia Tave taught As that these walking leaves Rei Secta. They live non the heir bodies Are very thin and Flat their forming Large Leaf like Kuben they Are disturbed their legs Are Foi led away under their bodies leaving their base exactly like a loaf with Stem and nil Complete they Are of a Bright Green col or in ton summer but gradually change m. The fall with the leaves to the Brown of Frostbitten vegetation. When shaken for m the tree they lie for a few minutes ground As though they were de presently they begin to crawl along the tree which they ascend again rarely use their although they Are pretty Well supplied in this keeping. Cider. There Are three stages of fermentation i which cider is subject Viz the . Aretous and the Putre Active. When doer has passed the vinous fermentation if left. Unchecked it soon posses into. fermentation becoming ropy and is word less. Most of the cider put up by i Armera. Passes into the second or Aretous or less sour Andine. Bring and when drank by Many producing a flushed face and headache n d what is worse producing grossness and in temper in Many of those that use it a a common beverage and guzzling it Down in arge quantities. It would be far better convert All puch cider into vinegar. To a making a Man a cider cask is a poor Ness. If new cider is fermented in an open cask after a time longer or Shorter de Pei Dong upon circumstances All die heavier jux tons of extraneous matter pomace Etc will Settle to the Bottom of the cask arid the Flocculent matter will Rise to the fur filae forming a spongy Brown crust. Just an soon As the vinous fermentation hat end Al rocks or fissures will appear in the crush and Small White bubbles of carbonic acid will fill the fissures in the crust the grand secret of having cider equal to pure wine s to Check any further fermentation. If the cider is left to itself Tho Aretous Fermen tation sedentary Mother of the of the East rises and die liquor comes acting As yeast Cei a second Anil More violent ferment at on resulting generally in Bard when die White bubbles begin to appear he crust should be removed and the liquid drawn off without disturbing the sediment at the Bottom of the cask. Pour three Pai Fuls of die liquor into Strong tight barrel then rom Gate Lave prepared a Long tapering Bung win looped wire inserted in the smaller end it in the lower end of the Loop fix strips of Cotton or Linen cloth dipped in melted i Hur.
