Afe tho in^ernafriomvl sheep show iir Philadelphia, one of the most interest- ing features of the exhibition was a trial of the^akill of sheep dogs in' managing their fleecy charge. The dogs were ex. pected to take five sheep from a pen, drive them around a course about a quarter of a mile long, and put them in another pen provided for the purpose. The first attempt was made by an Eng- lish dog called \ Lad,\ which, in Shef- field, England, is said to have carried off -fiie first prize from twenty-eight competitors. A correspondent of the ** New England Farmer\ thus describes \the scene: ,. . Everything being in readiness, the bars were taken down, and at a' word from 'his master \Lad\ jumped into the pen and sent the sheep out in a hurry. They were very wild, and the large crowd present had a tendency to make them worse, They^ at. ance started around the: north side of the course, followed by the dog and his rnaster, but had not gone a third.of the distance when the ram _atthe lead made a break, and went through the crowd on the outside of the ring, closely followed by the others, with the dog at their heels. In a short time the dog, returned with four of them, but the fcfth was still missing. After bringing -them back,, he went in search of the absent one, which he soon found and brought inside the enclosure. But instead of going toward its companions this re- fractory ram started -in the other direc- tion, but was not followed.by- the dog, who wont again after the stray four. After getting these started, another broke away, but was soon brought back, when all' four again started around the course, the intention of the dog beingevidently 'to pick np the stray ram when he came up with him. \When the dog went to get Jha ram, it showed fight, and took refuge between two stone slabs. The dog barked furiously, and in vain, at- tempted to dislodge the stubborn ani- mal. The dog was about giving i t up, when his master instructed him to go back and fetch the ram with him.

Mr. lie Eoy, or \Prince Charley'? as he was called, was the greatest catch of the season. His parents were dead, and he the inheritor of their reputed vast possessions. Handsome scarcely describedj him, and as Daisy felt the spell of his bril- liant conversation, as well as admired his beauty,, she acknowledged Amy was right in all she had said in his'praise.. The acquaintance begun that night developed very fast.' Amy's parents, pleased to gratify their daughter; soon threw open their house or a magnificent entertainment . Daisy's pride suooumbed t o the strong desire* to be beautiful and charming, and she yielded to Amy's coaxing and con- sented to wear one of her cousin's 60s. tumes. Dr. Allen would not hate re- cognized his little, daughter as she glided through the brilliantly-lighted rooms on Mr. Le Boy's arm. Her dress was of silk, the color of the palest petal of the musk-rose, with a film of point lace falling in soft folds down to the end of the sleeping—train- Her hair ^was- parents where the happiness of hor they charged the infuriated ram. Instead of the ram running away, it lowered its head and repelled the attack of the canine. After being repeatedly butted, the \dog caught the ram by the ear, and by dint of sheer force Jed the animal to the pen. This trial consumed about twenty-five minutes. A Scotch collie named \ Oscar \ did not have so severe a tussle as '•' Lad,\ and'occomplished his task in twenty-one minutes. Other dogs were also put on trial test, and the awards were made later in the week. All of the dogs are endowed with in- credible intelligence and sagacity. i, Ac, dee. Orders SIM tot woks* Genuine Esquimau Dogs. Lieutenant Doane, of the United States amy, who_wenk,out- with the Gulnare, brought back with him two cute little Esquimau pup- pies, which „ he has presented to Captain Howgate. They are interesting little creatures, and as frolicsome as kittens. They are covered with fur, as soft and fine as Saxony wool, and they are as fond of petting as children. The headB are black, and the bodies a dingy white, which is, however, gradually yielding to soap and watier, and promises in time to rival the snows of their Arctic birthplace • in whiten.ess. Their eyes beam*with^»teiligence, and their ears IB^^uBeo^-Tike those of foxes. They are extremely 'good-riaturedv and mani- fest a great fondness for human society, which proves that they are an important factor injiie domestic circles of the Frigid Zone. They were fed meat on their arrival, anch not being accustomed to diet of that kind, it nearly ended their lives. Then the weather Was very- • warm in the middle of the day, and the poor creatures panted as vigorously as a United States member of the genus canine in the dog days. When the writer saw them they had just dined on raw oysters, which they had enjoyed immensely, and were trifling over their dessert—a twehty-pound block of ice, that they caressed with all the apparent fondness one bestows on an old tod familiar friend. If they survive such extremes of climate and' are not so many -y>tmdr~of fcydre|*o\%_foTlh4> wrotee w^ttoasleages drawnby Ewjminau i will become one of the vagaries of le metropolitan .life in the near future. :<mxu \Sol have yon at last, Daisy! To tell the truth,. I hardly thought Uncle Eiohard wouid dare to expose you to a winter of city dissipation.\ \Oh you know you promised papa we should be very quiet,, as is suitable for a minister's daughter, so he felt no fear.\ Two girls were seated together in a room, which might have been designed by an artist, so perfect it Was in all its luxurious details. They were cousins- one a wealthyxity broker's only child, the other' the daughter Of a country minister. Amy was a vivacious bru- nette, whose every motion was. so quick as to remind one forcibly Of a brilliant humming bird. Daisy was a sweet rose- bud of a girl, with sensitive mobile lips and deep gray eyes. It was her first winter in New York, and the firht time she had ever been away from home. \ Now, Daisy,'•'continued Amy, \you have been quiet for three days, and to- morrow I'm going to take you out. .Show me your party dresses.\ Daisy flushed a little as she rose, for she knew the almost limitless extent of Amy's wardrobe.' —AmyVpeHtenesswas severely taxed Ss she looked at the three prettily-fash- ioned costumes which were Daisy's, party dresses. It amused her to think of going through a season of city gayety with only three white dresses ; but she only said : \ They are lovely, Daisy—just lovely ! and when they aro soiled I will supply you; we are of the same height.\ Daisy's flush deej^ued as she rather proudly said: \1 didn't expect to go to many par- ties, Amy; and when they • are soiled I shan't go t;o any more.\ Further speech was impossible, for Ainy seized her in her strong young arms, and, gently shaking her, ex- claimed : * \Daisy Allen, take that! I mean you shall make a winter of it.' What if uncle is a minister? Make up your mind to do everything and anything, and if you thwart me, woe be to you.\ TJalsy was only eighteen, and full of life and fun, and once having cast scruples aside, she entered- heartily into all Amy's projects for their amusement. But Amy could not overrule her cousin, when, the following evening, she found her determined to wear a white dress to a \ German \ they were to at- tend. So she had t o content herself, When her offer of a ravishing \ciel-blue\ silk was refused, with looping and dot- ting here and there the simple dress with pure white rosebuds.\ She herself was attired in cream silk and black laee: Daisy had formed great anticipations of pleasure, as what yaung_girl fresh from aqamt home would not; and they were abundantly gratified. She did not do injustice to Amy's boudoir lessons in waltzing, and the graceful white-robed girl was the most conspicuous of the many belles who saw with envy their complexions fade beside her fresh loveli- ness. Vis-a-vis to Daisy in a \Landers\ wa« a gentleman, whose eyes had a mesmeric influence, in that they made hers droop. She watched him in the pauses of the dance, and tried to make out the dark, stern face. Was it stem because he did not approve of the glittering scene in which .he mixed, or aijnply'indifferent? Such were Daisy's thoughts. But he was soon forgotten when Amy intro- duced to iter an Apollo in modem garb, and took.an opportunity to whisper in her ear: * Charley, Daisy!\ It seemed as._if_ fill the blood is his body rushed to his face as he replied : \Daisy forgive me, but I dread, as I dread pain to mvself, seeing it in others. I will seek out the boy, and do all ihat money can dp, but I couldn't have stopped.\ \ ' \ ' , It was a terrible beginning of Daisy's love romance, but she had to be satis- fied with his .wonts. It turned put.. the boy was not seriously injured^-so Mr. Le Eoy told 5 her the next day; and Daisy soon forgot everything else, savo that she loved and was loved. It was now time for Daisy' to return home, and so alio had postponed telling her parents of her engagement till she should see them; she was anxious to go. Amy -had enjoyed jthe eclat of intro- ducing a new star, and of bringing about the most conspicuous match of the sea- son; and, bosido -that, she dearly loved her cousin, so she was sorry to nave her go- Mr. Allen and his wife wero wholly unprepared to find their daughter had grown in three short months to the dig- nity of a lover; but they were indulgent » ,<M powdered, and a duster \of pale pink buds, just the color of the dress, nestled in the soft,puffs just bdow the little ear. Charles Le Boy, whose taste in such matters was considered faultless, pro? nouneed her the most beautiful of all the beauties he had seen. He scarcely left her side, and many were the signifi- cant looks as one and another noticed lm attentions. He had hitherto been particular to single no one lady for at- tention, but had been courteous to all. \ Now Prince Charley's caught at^last,\ was the comment of ufs circle. Daisy was in the conservatory, resting after_a long^ waljz, and_Mr. ..Lo\ Koy hat! gono to\ bring her an ice. Somewhat wearied, she leaned back among the perfumed foliage, which . entirdy screened, her from view, when some words she overheard made her start erect and listen with a compression of tho sensitivo lips. This was what she heard: \.I only know that she is Miss Amy Egbert's cousin—a Miss Allen. Yes, \shVls beautiful. ~ I thought, when T first saw her, a man would deem himself lucky who won tho love of such a woman. Among that frivolous throng she conducted herself in such a natural, unaffected manner. It \made one enjoy .oneself only to watch her.\ A few words were said she did not catch, and the deep voice went on. \ Yon see now, Adde, what a change a few weeks in this kind of lifo makes. -Look at her to-night—0U6 of godoty^ most worldly Votaries, exerting herself to win a smile from ilto_l beau-par-ex- cdlence.'\ - Tho yoico stopped, \ and looking around the orange tree which Jstood be- fore her, Daisy saw the tall, dork, stem- looking man she had noticed before, and by his' side a slight, youthful, figure--\ probably his wife. When \ Prince Charley \ roturnedhe for 8omo time found a rather distrait partner. But he had noticed tho costli- ness of her attire, and tho superb dia- monds in her .ears and on her neck, and he had made up his mind here Was a girl whose beauty satisfied him and who must be correspondingly wealthy, so he exerted hjmsolf to please, and was soon, -successful. * Amy was highly delighted with Daisy's success, and being herself engaged, made up her mind her consin should be, too, before she returned to her country home. And who as eligible as Charles Le Roy. So that young man found things play- ing right into his hands, and ho made the most of his opportunities. -Daisy was swept along m a dizzy whirl of E leasuie. Her imagination was dazzled, er ambition pleased, and she thought her heart was touched. She wrote home frequently, but her letters were cautious. She knew in her inmost -beart-her parents- -would not ap= prove of the course she was pursuing. One afternoon—one of thoso when the snow king smiles with tho greatest approval, an degant cufter, with a team of clipped bays, Was drawn up in front of the Egbert mansion. Daisy, muffled in a soft seal mantle lined with blue, •which Amy had-wrapped around her in the hall, descended the steps, and was carefully lifted in by \ Prince Charley.\ Then, with a courteous bow and a gay good-bye to Miss Amy standing in tho doorway, away they went. It was the first snow of the year, and all the avenues were alive with innu- merable sleighs with their gay occu- pants. It seemed to Daisy like the carnivals she had read of^ as they glided swiftly along. \ Prbptce Charley \ was used t o it all, but not evidently to the sweet beauty of the face beside him,-as his ardent looks testified. And before a very great while he had read in the frank eyeshot his hopeis were not in vain, and under the cover of the robe had held for an > instant the little trembling hand. But suddenly Daisy's eyes dilated with horror, for right before the fiery bays, endeavoring to run across the road, was a little boy, A scream, and the biysreared high in the air, and then dashed on, held by a firm hand, and urged faster and faster by a firm voice. Looking bads, Daisy saw a little dark object in the road, and beside it, lifting it tenderly, was the gentleman whose harsh criticism upon herself she had heard. The whole occurrence took but a few moments, and they were out of sight Ckrftarvag down in her seat, Daisy lifted an awe-arrudtaiace to her com- panion. ' \On» Sir. Le Roy-Charley—why did you not atop r loved better than themselves was eon* corned, and did not check her enthu- siasm as she,-told them about him. fie was to visit them in a week, Daisy said, and they waited till then to express an opinion. :.\' One day, a week later, a hack drove through the little' village, to the parson- age gate. Charles Le Roy gave a blank look arounA ns ho alighted and stopped to pav tho driver. As. ho walked sjowlv up the garden path the - blank look changed to a contemptuous one, and he with difficulty smoothed away both ex- pressions as he readied the dpor. The prirsonSgirwas a small, neat house -—nothing- elegant,* indeedj'but to~his eyes, expecting to see an imposing struc- ture, it seemed Very plain and insignifi- cant. He had not \known Daisy's father was a -minister,. having never cared to ask about hor family; for ho bad thought and truly, that only immense wealth could procure tho magnificent costumes he daily saw her attired in. Daisy was conscious, of a^ something, she could not define what, in his man- ner, as ho'greeted her and was presented to her parents. She watched him curiously, too, at the snppor-table,' wondering _ at his strange manner, and disappointed with the* impression ho was making, which sho saw was not favorable. But she soon knew what was tho trouble. Just before, the meal was finished the servant brunght in a letter to Dr. Alton, which he laid beside his plate to read at his leisure. „ AvDaisy and Mr. LoKoy walked from the supper room together, he turned to her and said' \ May 1-Hee you alone, a few niin.utes, Miss Daisy ?\ Daisy looked quickly np, and started to see m his face tho same oxjirossioji which it had worn when he explained to her why he had not stooped his flying horses. She led him to the library, and the door had scarcely closed when he turned and hurriedly said: \Miss Daisy, instead of coming to ask'your parent*' consent to our engage- ment, I have come to givo you back your freedom Daisy gavo a faint cry, and looked into bis face with piteous eyes. For »a in- stant the, selfish nature of the man wavered; but he went on . \ I did love you- I do!\ hero he drew her to him,, which Daisy passively suf- fered him to do, \ but It in only Just to tell you, I have lost all my fortune—1 am a poor man, and I would not doom one so bright and fair to poverty.\ - \Oh Charlev,\' with a glad Littlo laugh, \ is that all !\ He saw the situation at a glance, and changed his tactics. Withdrawing his arm he said, coldly: \ All! it is enough. Poverty is bad enough fur one, hut far two—\ The trembling, piteons-eyed maiden changed to a majestic woman, as Daisy suddenly in a lightning flash read the truth in the cowardly, eyes which evaded hers. The glamour fell from her eyes as she confronted him with tho gestnre of a queen. \ I see it all, Mr. Le Roy. Nay—let me spook (as^he tried to interrupt her). You saw me with my cousin's costly dresses and diamonds, and deemed me rich; you needed a fortune to mend your broken one, and you pretended to love me! I see-*-! see it all !\ Sho drew the gleadfing solitaire from her finger, and laying it in his hand calmly awaited his next movement. There was nothing for\him to do or say, and, ho > inimediately took'his de- parture. • ... . If he felt a momentary shame it soon passed away, as Jio- looked back on the little parsonage, -and thought how nearly np had compromised himself. As soon as .the door closed on him, Daisy wound her way to her n other's room. What was hor surprise on open- ing the door to find her m tears, and her husband* Vainly trying to comfort her. The mystery wa/f mado clear as. her. father handed her a letter, which was' from London, and ran thus: \ BKV. DB. • ALLEN: DEAK Snv-I have learned that a person by the name of Payton, alias Le Boy, is to be at your house this week. I have just lately dis> covered his whereabouts, and knowing you a minister, will wish to further the ends of justice, delayed operation until sure of success. Heis the famous forger who so suwseeafully fcrged the names of five of our wealthy merchants, and dis- appeared with the money. I mvself, with two officers, will visit yon Thura- day, and as you are a lover of justice, I ehsffge-yeu-to detain, him—hef he' friend or foe,\ '. \ .,\/._ The name signed was Roger Ponton- ! gall, ahd~Dr. Allen had heard of hini as a celebrated detective. The paper dropped., from Daisy's hand as she realised what she had escaped, and then and there she .qonfessod all t o her parents, taking to.herself the blame of appearing what she was not; Of course when the gentlemen came there was no prisoner t o capture, Dr. ABen explaining to them that ho had hot known of his departure in time to pre- \ vent it. They had told hini how tney had learned ho was to bo there that week. Two dotectives, disguised as farmers,. with ^prodnco...:ta..-.Bell-r-»h«d'' wormed themselves into the favor of Mr, Egbert's sery&aits (knowing Le Roy was intimate there), who had easily fallen into tho trap, and told all they knew froni hearing the family conversation. They thought that to arrest him in quiot Doauloigh would avoid giving unneces- sary pain to his many friends; and as they wero acting under such instructions, had laid their plans in that way. ^ Daisy's first winter she did not soon forget. And when the news came of Mr. Le Roy's arrest, and the scandal it had caused in society, sho shuddered anew at the awful peril she had so gid- dily courted.. ..Amy. Egbert came tho next summer, full of romorse; butane soou became her own gay self as sho saw the bloom on Daisy's \faoe as bright ftsjever. There was ah elegant place called Rockmount, a littlo out,of the village, which had stood vacant for years, and it was rumored it had found a purchaser. Extravagant stories were told of hia wealth,- \Rieh as Craisus\ he was called, and^hen J* check come to Dr. Allen of one thousand\ dollars, \for the poor of the village,\ it made them all tho more believed. r Four uneventful years quietly passed away. In that time Daisy changed; more in mind and character than in per- son, - When Mr. Delmar, the owner of Rockmount, called with his sister at tho pfttsonago and nwtihf seriousf yea looks - nig into bis, he know ho Imdsoen the \face before, and he suddenly remem- bered where and how. Daisy, too, felt the same mesmeric influtmoo.\ that had once attracted- her attention, stronger than ever. It was soon evident how tilings were tending, and Daisy's parents wore happy —not olono with their daughter's mak ing a good match in a worldly point of view, but that every new meeting showed them something more noble and manly in Philip Delhiar's character. . . When ho asked-Daisy if she would bo his wife sho told him about /Mr. Le Roy, not sparing herself in thp recital, and then with her hands folded one in the other, and downcast eves, waited. \ My darling !\ was all Philip said ; but the word was accented «s if in that all the past wore wiped away ; ftntlDaisy, lifting her lips for tho betrothal kiss, saw tho graveness all gone out of thb dark facie, and. in its stead a vivid light, whose source she know. 8o it was that that first winter of city life, which had worked her so much sor- row, was now remembered with pleas- ure, for tiion it was she had first met tho one whg wajyn3jjking-h< realm of auxnmine. rnj t'ontaglon. consists physically of Sortlnr Beans, A farmer's wito was busy Sorting beans.

Contagion minute solid particles. The process of contagion consists in the passage of thoso from tho bodies' of tho sick into tho surrounding atmosphere, and in tho inhalation of one or more of them by thoso in the immediato neighborhood. If contagion were a gaseous or vapory animation, it would be equally diffused through tho sick roonij and all who on- tored it would, if susceptible, suffer alike andjiicvitably. But; stioh is. not the case ; for many pooplo are exposed for weeks and months without suffering. Of two persons situated in oxactly tho same eireumstancos, and oxposed in ox- actly thesamo degree to a givon con- tagion, one may suffer and the other escape. The explanation of this is that the littlo particles of contagion aro irregularly scattered about in the atmosphere, so that the inhalation of one or more of them is purely a matter of chance^ such chance bearing a direct 'relation to tho number of particles which exist in a givon cubic space. Suppose that a hundred germs were floating about in a room 'containing two thousand cubic feet of air. There is ono germ for every twenty crtbio feot. Naturally the germs wilt be most ntimer-' ous in the immediate neighborhood of their source, the person of the sufferer; but, excepting this one place, they may be pretty equally''distributed through the room; or tbey may bo very un- equally'distributed, A draught across tho bed may carry thorn now to one side* now to the othor. The mass oV thom may bo near the ceiling, or near tho floor. ?In a given twenty cubio feet there may b e a dozen germs, or there maybenono at all. Ono who enter* the room may inhale a gorm before he has boon in it ten minutes, or ho may remain there for an hour without doing so. Double the number of germs and you double tho danger. Diminish the size of the room by one-half, and you do the same. Keep the windows shut, and yon keep the germs in; open them, and they pass out with the changing air. Hence the importance of free ven- tilation ; and hence one reason why fever should be treated, if possible, in large, airy rooms. Not only is free ven- tilation good for the sufferer, but it dUminiahec the risk to the atiamdanto.- A growing industry--Farming.
