CRIMINAL NEGLIGENCE,

What might have proved a very serious accident occurred at an early hour last Friday morning. he Citizens” Band having fulfilled an engagement at the Belleville fair on Thursday were returning home to Dege- ronto in one of Thomas Gault’s rigs, They were driving aloag in the darkness when

suddenly the whole party, with one solitary | formed their task admirably. exception, were hurled from their seats and, Geel attendance, te t

with their valuable instruments, found themselves struggling in a confused mass in a deep ditch. It appears that the county officials had been repairing the culvert at the foot of the hill near James Maracle’s, A deep excavation had been made and the earth piled up, but with a negligence criminal in the extreme the workmen when night came departed leaving the work unfinished but without a lantern or anything else to warn the traveller of his danger. The night being dark the band had driven into the big ditch thus excavated ; the horses were thrown down to one side and seriously injured, while the rig also was much damaged, Several of the members of the band, and more especially Mr, C. Macdonald, sustained severe bruises and other injuries, instruments were smashed, and it was little short of a miracle thas some of the men were not killed. The members of the band aroused Mr. Maracle to see the real condition of things and also came to town and got several citizens to go out and see the danger- ous state in which the road had been left. Mr. C. Macdonald, who was severely shaken up and whose valuable musical instrument was broken, has instructed his solicitor in Belleville to proceed against the county ofliciafs for damages, and, no doubt, the other members of the Citizen's Band, and Mr. Gault will take similar action, he council will be mulcted in a nice sum for damagesin connection with this affair, It seems that Messrs, Lenderoth, O'Connor and H. B, Rathbun came'within an ace of finding themselves in the same predicament as the Band but escaped by the sagacity of their horses.

METHODIST SABBATH SCHOOL.

Last Lord’s day was devoted to the review of the lessons of the past quarter in the ditferent Sabbath schools of the town. The exercises in the Methodist Sabbath School were on an elaborate scale and of a Very interesting character, The work had been assigned to the lady teachers who per- ; bis. was a achers and pupils e number of 340 being present Hi hota occasion, Mrs. A, Campbell, of the Parson. age, presided in the capacity of temporary superintendent of the school. The pro- Roars opened with the hymn ‘*Pasy Me ot, O Gentle Saviour” sung by the whole school, after which Mrs, Catnpbell led ina prayer of great spiritual fervour. A number of scriptural quotations were then given and the school again united in singing ‘Work for the Night is Coming.” Mrs, Campbell after some introductory remarks then pro- ceeded to a review of the first two lessons of the quarter, The other ladies who took part in the review were Mrs. J. E. Richard- son, Miss Porter, Mrs. Baldwin, Mrs. Haight, and Miss Scott. Mrs, B. W. Wash- burn gave some object lessons to the infant classes by means of a blackboard containing some elaborate drawings which conveyed easily grasped and important lessons. A!l the ladies performed their parts admirably and it was evident that careful study and analysis of the different lessons had char- acterized the work of the school during the previous quarter. The review exercises were varied by musical pieces given by the girls’ classes and readings of a propriate selections by Mrs.l.C. Fraser ren Mrs. R. E. Northmore, At the close of the Review Miss Wartman submitted the regular easterly report which showed that durin he term 3,964 verses had been learned an $37.31 collected, an excellent showing when it is remembered that the past quarter embraced the vacation season when so many teachers and pupils of the school are aWay from home. During the past three quarters the verses learned were as follows, Ist, 7,562 ; 2nd, 6,470; 3rd, 3,964 ; total 17,996. The collections during the same period were : Ist, $40,84 = 2nd, $41.95: 3rd, $37.31 5 total $120.10. To this amount must be added proceeds of entertainment in the sprin| $28.00 and excursion $38.95, making a peed total of receipts thus far of $187.05, figures which Bisel more eloquently than words. Although the exercises were continued rather too long, the interest was sustained throughout. The exercises from beginning to end were conducted by the ladies, the pastor and regular superintendent being relegated to a back seat for the time being. Miss Cumspbell fulfilled the duties of organist and a young lady was organ blower ; ladies

TREATMENT OF MILCH COWS.

dairy has its quotum of

Nearly every s 'y cow in the land is

kicking cows, and every land { liable to sawiteh her tail across a milker’s face during fly time. The human irritation aroused thereby rebuts on the herd, to its positive injury. There are two classes of kicking cows—-those habitually inclined that way, like a balky horse, and those that only use their rear hoofs in an offensive manner to resont fancied or real provocation, Nothing-but the gentlest and kindest treat ment should rule in the dairy ; 60, to cure & cow of this disagreeable habit, a brusque manner should be avoided, ‘Yo milk an inveterate kicker, treat her as you would a heifer, Give her no chance whatever to use her heels, Put a broad strap around her hind legs over the gambrels, and, drawing them snugly together, buckle it tight, Place her in a stanchion next to the wall, and from a ring in the latter let o long strap depend, which, after passing around her right flank, draw taut to the stanchion braces near her head, The cow is then practically helpless so far as any vicious manifestations are concerned. Sit down quietly to milk her, and speak soothiayly and reassuringly’ If the cow struggles to free heeselt, calm her fears by a gentle pat of the }and and a persuasive tone of yolve. Milk her in the same restraint day after day, and in a few weeks or months she cau be cured of kicking. The meekest cows sometimes temporarily contract the habit of kicking in defense of abuse from some senseless milker. Treat them impussionately and be perfectly indifferent to their tendency to be light heeled. In a very short time they will be permanently cured, If cows sWitch their caudal appendages in your face in an attempt to brush off flies, don’t amputate the otlending members, _as some do, but affix to the side of the milking stool a short strip of tough wood, divided by a spring slit, after the manner of a strictured clothes-pin, Have the opening of the slit turned backward, and into it ; when sitting down to milk, draw the brush of the cow’s tail. Cow’s tails should never be cut: off, as it is a wicked, brutal custom, depriving the animal of its means of self-defense aguinst insects. Humanity and kindness go as far making a dairy profitable as nutritious food. —Amvrican Agriculturist for October.

Have you ever, at house cleaning time, coming to the bureau drawers, thought thus: “Til let them go until some other time; they don’t show,”—leaving the contents of those drawers in the same chuotic state? Let me tell you how to do the next time: Before you commence the regular Sleanligs put the drawers and boxes all inorder, If the chambers are cold, take your work to the kitchen or sitting-room ; it is easy to remove a drawer from its place. Put your best gloves in one box, the worn ones in another; the same with collars, laces and ribbons. Each box should be labeled plain- ly, then you will know at a glance what the contents are. Following this method of “putting to rights,” you will be surprised to see how easily the dreaded cleaning can be managed, Men's colored cotton shirts make excellent wash cloths for cleaning wood: work. When considered too badly worn for other use, they should be laid aside for this purpose. Wo not try to clean more than one room ata time, for it is very wearisome to

THE BRIGHT SIDE OF SOAP,

Soap has its attractive side, which ie al- Ways its clean side. A dirty piece of soap ora dirty soap-dish is repulsive, and one naturally shrinks from ablutions which are to be performed with such aids, A certain habit of observation (which is one of my failings) has sonvinced me that the soap question, unlike ‘Is marriage a failure ?,” is ove which has not forced itself to any extent upon the minds of the people. It may seem like carrying estheticism a little too far, to wish to reforu the soap-dish at the kitchen sink, but this is just where it is most im- portant to begin. Have two tin or granite

anging soap-dishes, with holes in the bottom to let off the water, so that y our soap is not always of the consistency of a jellyfish. In one of these keep laundry soap for scrubbing, and like purposes; in the other a piece of Castile soup. ‘Themen who work in the fields come home with hands roughened, and often wounded, by their toil, and it is simple cruelty to force them to wash with common yellow soap, which adds to their discomfort. Induce each member to always rinse off the soap before laying it down, | for dishwashing, there comes a little tin box with holes in it and a long handle, It is much neater und more eco- nomical to keep w bit of soap in this, and shake it about in the dishwater, than to use a large piece, which the servant will let lie in the water while washing her dishes, with the general result of flavoring your soup or meat with yellow soap, a bit of which has been carelessly left on the spoon or the tine ofatork Receptacles for soap in sleeping apartments should be cleansed as reguiurly as the beds ore made, It is better to attend to this oneself than to leave it to o servant who is often burried, if not forgetinl, The writer overcame the ayersion to soap-and- water in her little boy, which most children seem to shure with kittens, by giving him a Pretty piece of pink toilet-soap, molded in the form of ashoe, and promising him one in the shape of a little girl's head and face when he had used the former, if in the mean. time I never suw him at table with soiled hands,—Arerican Aqriculturist for October,
