Health of Cows.
E. W. Stuart, of New York, has this
to say, that the health of the cows may
be promoted by studying the effect of
different foods. A fruitful cause of dis
ease in cattle is tho steady feeding of
dry, woody, fibrous food. This pro
duces impaction of the manifolds and
a general derangement of the system.
Oil meal seems to have a similar effect
upon the system to turnips or other
roots. It produces a general relaxation
of the bowels and counteracts the effect
of dry, fibrous food. In many dairy
districts flaxseed is purchased at a
moderate price, say from $1,13 to $1.00
per bushel, and it will pay the dairy
man or feeder of cattle or horses, to
buy a few bushelsof flax seed and grind it
with his other grain. One bushel of flax
seed mixed with twenty bushels of corn
and oats, and all ground fine together,
will, by reason of its oil, render slightly
laxative and assist materially in giving
a proper action to the digestive organs.
This will answer instead of oil meal.
It will show its effect by giving a soft,
mellow skin and a glossy coat. By
studying the effects of foods the feeder
may prevent most of those diseases that
render the services of the farrier neces
sary. Food is all the medicine that is
One of the strong points in favor
of the much praised ensilage, is that
animals eat it with a relish. No food,
however rich it may be in food elements,
will prove profitable if the farm stock
cannot be made to take to it kindly.
It is on this account that a mixing of
feed has been so successful. Sameness
palls upon the appetite—a change of
diet encourages and sharpens it. A
fow roots cut, or better, pulped, and
given to the animals, will make them
cat the corn-fodder or cut straw with all
the greater reliah. Try and make a
little change in diet of the animals,
even though it be only once a week,
with some roots, potatoes, apples, etc.,
it will pay. The more an animal eats,
and healthfully digests, the more profi
table it is.

Most readers are no doubt acquainted
with Bonaparte's superstitions regard
ing the breaking of a looking glass.
During ono of his campaigns in Italy he !

he thought, ominous occurrence, that t
he never rested until the return of the
courier whom he had forthwith des-. I
patched to convince himself of her !
safety, so strong was the impression of ,
her death upon his mind. i
In Cornwall, breaking a looking-glass i
is believed to insure seven years of sor- '
row , and a Yorkshire proverb informs '
us (hat such an unfortunate occurrence j
entails "seven years' trouble but no ]
want." In Scotland, to smash a look- •
ing-glass hanging against a wall is re- ;
garded as an infallible sign that a mem
ber of the family will shortly die. ,
Grose, alluding to this superstition, |
says it foretells tho speedy decease of '
the master of the house. It has been
suggested that this popular fancy dates
very many years back, and probably
originated in the destruction of the re- '
fleeted human range—an interesting il
lustration o(- how the association of
ideas in the formation of superstition is
often determined by more analogy.
In the south of England it is regarded
as highly unlucky for a bride on her
wedding day to look in the glass, when
she is completely dressed, before start- -
ing for the church. Hence very great
care is usually taken to put on a glove
or some slight article of adornment,
after the last lingering and reluotant
look has been taken in the mirror.
The idea, we are informod, is that
any young lady who is too fond of the
looking-glass will be nufortunate when J
married. This is not, however, tho
only way in which superstition inter
feres with tho grown-up maiden's peep !
in the looking-glass. Thus, Swedish ,
damsels are afraid of looking in the 1
glass after dark, or by candlelight, lest -
by so doing they forfeit tho good will
of the other sex. On the other hand,

ally holds a prominent position in love

Whom Sot To Marry. <
Women who love their husbands are ■
happy and at rest. Those who do not
are disturbed and restless. They are J
always seeking for some means of kil- j
ling time. They are ready to flirt at (
any moment. Their children are, ac- <
cording to their means, either hidden [
in nurseries under the caro of French j
bonnes, or handed over to Sally, the |
slatternly nurso, to skake, and slap, and
stun" with sugar, as her wisdom dictates, i
while society and amusements of all |
sorts occupy their mother's time. Home
is not happy to the poor woman, because ,
she has chosen her mate foolishly—be- i
cause she trusted to that " love after i
marriaco" which mercenary old people
promise those who make what they call
a sensible match.
Sad as a neglected wife, who loves
her husband well, must be, I believe
she is happier than this poor rostless ;
creature, though she be worshipped.
The love of one we do not love becomes
simply a bore, especially in the close ,
intercourse of home life ; and she who
does not give her heart to her husband '
is not likely to care much for his chil- '
dren. So, girls, if you do not lovo your
lover, don't marry him. llomomber '
that marriage is a serious step, and that
when you givo him your hand that he (
may encircle it with a wedding ring, t
you seal the happiness or misery of l
your natural life. Don't marry unless j
you aro sure of your lovo for him, and i
his for you. (

A train of fifteen oil tanks belonging
to the Union Tank Company, on the

a few rods from tho bridge and an en

across the bridge and out of danger. As
the cars exploded one by the volumes
of flames shot up hundreds of feet into
the air, and fragments of the tanks were
thrown fully one thousand yards. Re

oil to escape, thus preventing explosion
and permitting the fire to exhaust itself.

perforated, and no explosion occurred.

The ease of tho men who robbed the
passenger train on the Iron Mountain
Railroad on the night of September
2nd, and who were captured Septembor
28th—one in Texas and two in the
Indian nation—and brought to Wash
ington, assumed a new and sensational
phase in tho special term court held on
Friday, when each of tho robbers
pleaded guilty to fourteen indictments,
Auiking the term of punishment seventy
years to each man. The pursuing paTty
that captured two of the robbers—
Stephens and Delany—consisted of
four men named Hutldlestone, Belvines,
Moore and Dollahade. When arrested
the robbers had about $9,000 in their
possession. Belvines objected, sayiDg
the money ought to be returned to the
railway company, but he finally agreed
to its being equally divided among the
four officers in the presence of Stephens
and Delany. In consideration of the
latter two keeping the matter secret,
each of tho four officers took an oath
that he would annually pay to the
family of the train robbers $100, and
leave no means untried to secure their
release from the penitentiary after con
viction. The party reached Hope, turned
ovor the prisoners to the authorities
and came to this city, where they re
ceived $1,000, the reward offered by the
state for their capture. All tho captors
appeared at the trial, when Belvines
divulged the whele matter to Superin

made affidavit that he knew nothing of
