A Blary frane "We. Brace."
A friend says tlie Colntnbna Sam, sends u tbu
folIuwiDj; story "Xed Brace," the famous hnmur
ist of "Oeorgia Scenes." We do nut remember to
bare beard it before, aiid ilo uut lliiuk it hasetcr
been in print:
Mr. Dacon, of Edgefield, South Carolina, tbe
hero of tbe Georgia scenes, under tbe uuuiu of
Ned Brace, was ouce courtiug a lady citber in
Georgia or Carolina. Sbe bad refcined Lira fre
quently, and be as often renewed bis suit. At
one iiiterrien' sbe became exceedingly annoyed at
his importunity, and told bim sue could not
marry bim, tbat their tastes, opinions, likes and
dislikes nere totally different; "in fact" said sbe
"Mr. Bacon, I dun't think there is one subject on
earth upon which we agree."
I assure you, Madam, that you are mistaken,"
said Mr. Bacon, "and I can prove it."
"If you will mention one thing which we
agree," said sbe, "I will marry you."
"Well," said Mr. liacun, "I will do it. Sup
pose, now you and I were travelling together, ue
arrive at night at a hotel, and there are only two
beds.vacaut, in one there is a man and in the oth
er a woman, which bed-would you select to sleep
She arose indignantly and replied, "With the
woman, of course; sir."
"So would I," earnestly replied Mr. Bacon.
"Haw Cam I Caamr"
The following story is good because it is true.
We had it from tbe lips of a good woman, who
was told it by the -principal actcr herself. " Veil
I first come to Filadelfy to serve, I was very un
civil," said Katrine, now a tidy servant in a res
pectable family; "I laugh mooch, and I feel
ashamed to remeinlwr bow I behave veu I know

not any harm. But now I pluses red every
times I tinks mid it."
A well known Democratic lawyer of this city
the other day undertook to convince a former
slave, and now the deacon of a Boston church,
tbat it was bis duty to vote fur Greeley.
"Yon know Mr. Sumner and Mr. Greeley have
been your friends," said he.
"Yes, 111 allow all dat."
"Then is it not your duty to be grateful to Mr.
"Ob! yes, yes, I'm berry grateful to Massa
"Then why cannot you vote for him V
"Oh! I'm 'fraid of his friends, dem old reus."
"You are a praying man, deacon!"
"Yes, I hope so, sir."
"Dou't the Bible tell you to pray for your en
miesf" "Oh! yes; and I does pray for 'em, hard."
"And you should forgive them the barm they
have done you and the country."
"Oh! I dues all dat; I forgive 'em all the Bible
tells me; but it doesn't tell me to let 'em hate a
cbauce to do it again!"
The lawyer will henceforth confine his mission
ary labors to another class of his subjects. Ihm

We clip the following extracts on fruitgrowing
iu Kansas, from a communication in the Ottawa
Our country has been settled so recently that
we have no old orchards, and but few of them
bearing; so that we cannot sieak of its fruit
growing qualities with the same confidence tbat
we could of older settled districts, but I think
enough has been done to show clearly that most
fro its that grow in the eastern and middle States
will succeed well here. Eastern Kansas has
soil and climate almost 'identical with western
Missouri, which grows nearly all the choice
fruits iu great abundance and of superior qual
ity. The first settlers of Kansas planted some
orchards, mainly of apple tress, but during tbe
troubles of latter times most of them were neg
lected and of course failed. Some have also
failed from being planted on low damp grounds,
aud iu otherwise bad situations. But so far as I
have observed, all tbat have been judiciously
planted aud had reasonable care have been a suc
cess. The apple makes a better irrowth here than I
have ever seen in any part of the country east of.
iue iigsiaipui trees oi tne same age oeing larger
than on tbe rich' prairies of Illinois, with a clean
golden bark and well ripened wood.
Perhaps the trees do not begin to beanajnite as
soon as in some parts of the east, though
I have seen trees of the "Missouri pippin," and
aome other early bearing sorts loaded with
fruit four and five years from tbe graft.
I think the tardinea of trees in bearinz is often
more fancied than real. An orchard three or four
years planted will be as large as. one in tbe east
at six or eight or niue. veai s with tbe same caro
aud we are apt to look fur as much fruit on our
lour year oiu orcnaru as we would ook upon rue
older one of tbe same size -cast, aiid to be dis
appointed il we dont tret it.
The few orchards in this section that have been
planted six to teu years are now bearing heavy
crops of fruit, equal in quality aud superior in
size and appearance to that growu iu the east.
Tbe peach is less certain than the apple, and
except "in favored localities wo cannot depend
npun a crop oftener than oue year iu three or
four; yet some growers in Franklin County have
bad large crops nearly every year.
The iwar has been tried but little in this sec
tion of Kansas, but it promise well, and I have
seen some fine cropi as handsome fruit as I have
Cherry, the tender sorts, are not reliaabi; but
tbe hardy sorts, as "early Kichnioud," " hjtglish,"
"Marello," iV.c, produce abundantly. ?
Blackberries, rasphernrs, aud small'" fruits
generally succeed ell, but should be planted iu
rather cooly partly xhaded situations.
Grapes appear to lie at home in Kansas, and
seldom, if ever, fail to produce immense crops of
tuu nnest lruit, not a nnit interior to mat gronu
in the Iwst grape lauds of Mismmri.
With proper care iu selecting varieties, plan
ting, and tending, no one need bo many years
without a supply of guod.frmt for his family and
friends, and soma to spare to thriftless neighbors
who would not triaut because they could not wait
so long for tbe fruit. To make it pay well fur
growing, it only requires a good market, i he
rapid settlement of Kansas by people from the
east, attracted hither by our cheap prairie lands,
will insure a good home market for some years
while our railroads are opening communication
with the north, south and west, which must make
a market for us equal to any in the United
Sheep aa Fertiliser.
Jnrian Winne communicates to the Country
Gentleman his exiierience in feeding sheep from
which we take the following interesting para
graph: As to the valne of sheep roannre, and the
effects resulting from its liberal application, I
have never kept much other stock, and I may be
permitted to aud mat tweuty-sevru years ago.
wbeu I came on tu this farm, I cut from about
GO acres of land the first year 25 tuns of hay.
Yearbeforcla&tlcut from precisely thesamenum
ber of acres 100 tuus, and last year (a isexson of
severe drouth 90 tuns. When I begun on the
farm I had one barn 32 by 40 feel, which held all
the crops it produced. I now have one barn 4-1
by 52 fret, 20 feet posts; one shed 21 by 36, 18
feet posts; one 21 by 24, 16 feet posts; one 30 by
72, lti feet pusts, aud oue barrack that will bold
1? tons of hay. Summer before last they were
all full. Two rules I laid down, never to lose
sight of, when I commenced farming for myself:
1. To deal honorably with mother Earth that is,
to plow well, harrow well, give ber all the ma
nure I could, and never sell m'y atraw, but keep
it all for the laud, and I assure you I could soon
see an improvement. 2. Neer to buy anything
(except manure) I conld possibly do without, un
til I bail the money to pay fur it for manure,
when it could be had, I was never afraid to run
in debt. These tu o rules I have strictly adhered
to, and roust attribute much of my success to
their benign influence.
Celery for Winter Use.
Yon can preserve celery fur uiuter uso iu a
cold cellar, by folhiwiug direction 'as given, but
the most feasible plan, and tbe one must usually
followed, is to select a dry spot in the garden, dig
a trench eighteen inches wide and one foot deep.
Iu this set the celery on its own roots, as closely
together as possible, and allsnv the packing of
earth about the. stalks. In doing this the earth
should not be allow ed to enter the crowu. . The
celery being plant' d tbus closely, and earths 1 to
within a few inches of the top, place a roof of
boards overall, in short sections, so they may
not press on the celery, aud yet so that a section
may be removed to get to the plants when wan
ted. Cover all secure from frost with litter,
manure, etc., allowing ventilation until extreme
cold weather comes, when all must be closed
tight. Wbeu wanted, remove a section of
boards, take what is wanted and store iu the
cellar iu sand for use, covering all secure again
outside. Market gardeners follow much the
same plan, except that, being taken out in quan
tities, they are not particular as to tbe covering
of boards. Rural.
Nothing is prized more highly by horsemen
than corn lelf fodder asa rongkneM, a substitute
for bar. it -Is considered excellent. tThe Arkansas
I farmer tells ns how aud when it should be .gath
As soon as the shuck ripens, begin to strip tbe
blades. Do not put the fodder oil the ground,
leaving it until evening to bind. The method of
tying in small bundles as it is stripird, and ban
ging it on the stocks to dry, is best. WlieL about
three-fourths cured, gather and thruwMii good
sized close heaps, late in the evening, aVl let it
go through a healing process during tbe night ;
uetdsv throw open the heaiis the irjats tti.l
dissipate the remaining moisture, cure the fodder
sooner, and git e it, at tbe same time, a tender
ness and flavor much relished by the stock.
Spare no pains to cure it well if moldy and dus
ty, it may prove more thau worthies.
KEErtxo ClDKlt. A good method for keeping
cider is, first, to just bring it to the boiling point
in a bright brass kettle or clean tin boiler, skim
and barret tightly. WkefiT wanted, draw off oue
to ten gallons, according to the number using it
and let tbe air have access to it for a day or two.
It will then be in fiue condition for use. After
the new cider has settled so ns to be perfectly
clear, draw off and poor into new barrels through
the bungs. Add two quarts of- pure alcohol to
the barrel aud cork tight. In all cases put in the
faneets before filling the barrels, so that thrre
need be ne shaking or moving of tbe cider after
it is once stored.
A correspondent of theJrica JjArtt
suggests as a convenient bag-holder, It barrel
with both beads knocked ont and a fef nail
driven in one end. The open end of the bag is
hung over these nail. When the bag is filled,
tbe barrel maybe lifled-off. Many grain bags
are too small to be fasteued to opposite sides of a
barrel. Hooks extending some inches from one
side of the barrel wonld remedy this trouble.

THIS triaiDEBLIQ JEW.
A rumor comes from a village near Antwerp
tbat the historic "Wandering Jew" has been
seen in that neighborhood, lie is reported as
having passed rapidly through tbe market place,
and as baviug, ou tbo outskirts of tbe village, ad
dressed a few words to some children, who, buider
than their companions, had followed in his path.
He was dressed iu worn and dingy antique gar
ments, carried a long staff, and with his protuse
beard streaming in the wind, presented such an
awe-inspiring appearance that the terrified villa
gers lied from bim in fright. Wben.ho paused
aud spoke to the children, lie told them to go. back
and inform tbu people that a new ruler had arisen
io-Europe, who would bring Belgium, Holland
aud other countries nnder his sway, that many
strange vicissitudes would be witnessed, and that
many proittl heads would be brought lo.v. On
being questioned as to bis name, be replied :
-"Seek not to know. I have been here before in
the past, I shall be here again in the future.
Until the end oftiinerBhaH Iwaikthe earth un
ceasingly.'1 Theapparition,theu wavingitsbaud,
turned from the children and resumed his plod-
uiug waiE, ana disappeared in tne uisiauce.
Thereport'of this appearance of the "Wander
ing Jew-" has caused great excitement among
the believers of tbe legend, and t lie truth of the
story iscredited throughout Belgium. The legend
of the Jew who had witnessed the crucilictiun,
and bad been'enndcinned to live and wander over
tbe earth uutil tbe time of Christ's second coming,
originated iu the middle ages, and cau be traced
back to tbo chronicle of the Abbey of St. Albans,
which was copied and continued by Matthew Paris.
This climuicle relates that in 12j a certain Arch
bishop, of Armenia Major, come to England ou a
visit to sacred places, and while enjoying the
hospitality, of tbe Abbey of St. Albans, among
otner Btrauge stones, rtinm inai mere was a
man Joseph, living in Armenia, ho bail witness
ed tbe crucitktiou. This man, originally called
Bataphilus, was a porter iu Pilate's serv ice, and
while Jesus was passing out from the judgment
hall impiously struck him on tbe back, saying.
"Go quicker, why do you loiterf" Jesus looked
back ou bim with a severe countenance, aud said,
"I am going, but you will wait till I return."'
And accordingly Cataphilus is still waiting liis
return. After Christ's death be was converted
and baptised, and bis name was changed to Joseph.
In 1-12 tbe Wandering Jew appeared at Ham
burg, telling a story similar to the alme. He.
bun ever, said that his name was Abasucrus, and
tbat he was a shoemaker, who struck Jesus on tbe
back while on the way to Golgotha.. This partic
ular person is described as a tall man, about fifty
years of age, with long hair hanging down to his
sboulders7barefooted, and weanng a strange cos
tume, consisting of sailor's trousers, a gown reach
ing to his kneesand a long mantle flowing down
to his feet. He spoke good German in the Saxon
dialect. Iu 1575, the Wandering Jew appeared
ou the Netherlands, and this time used the Span
ish lamniaze. A few Tears later tbe Wanderine-
Jew arrived at Strasbourg, and going before tbe
magistrates, iufomied tbem tbat be had visited
the city just two hundred years before, which
statement, it is asserted, was proved to be tree
by a reference to some, town records. He next
was heard of in tbe n est Indies, and again iu
France, where in 1604, be caused a considerable
sensation, his presence being accompanied by
On April 22d, 1774, au indivdual claiming to be
tbo Wandering Jew appeared in Brussels, aud
told his story tu tbe common people; be, however,
had changed the popular name of bis character,
aud called himself Isaac Laquedem. This legend
has formed the subject of numerous popular bal
lads in the difierent languages of Europe, and
also of poems, tales aud novels, by distinguished
authors. It may here be remarked that this cu
rious myth seems to have originated iu the
passage of tbe Gospel of St. John, twenty
first chapter, and twenty-second verse, where
Jesus says of John. "If I will that he tarry till
I come, what is that to thee t follow thou me.
Then went thissaying abroad among the brethren
that tbat disciple should not die," forgetting the
additional words. "Yet he said not of him he
shall not die, but if I will that he tarry till I
come, what is that to theef"

His manners were courtly and elegant, without
pretension and without affectation, aud no mau
could be more charming to those admitted to his
society. He was always liked by bis employes
and assistsuts, but be never sought fur advice,
and those who pressed their counsels upon him
never gained much from their efforts.

upon. Mr. Bennett's .moral courage was also
equal to'every test. The Herald was neverafraid,
and never cowed before tbe most formidable ad
versary. Oue of the most striking instances of
this was its adherence to Fremont and tbe Re
publican party in 1856. Up to that time Mr. Ben
nett bad rather supported tbe Democracy, and
had advocated tbe compromises of lfSO, including
the fugitive slave law, but when the Republican
party entered upon that surprising canvass they
found to their astonishment that tbe great power
of tbe Herald was enlisted on their side. Every
body supposed that the prosperity of the paper

was not so. Its right to liberty and to its own
course of action had been maintained in too many
deadly fights to be disputed now. The Demo
crats continued to read it as much as ever, and
doubtless many of them were induced by its fresh,
brilliant, aud often noble articles agaiust tbe ex
tension of shivery, to give their suffrages to tbe
candidate of tbe new party. -Vor Fortran.

mometer wonld doubtless have saved both those
valuable lives. The merenrv in tbe tobe should
never be permitted to stand above seventy. If
that temperature is not sufficient to give warmth,
it is an indication that tbe person does not take
sufficient exercise, and tbe cure for it is more
miles and more flannel. In the coldest weather,.
wbeu tbe ground is like stone nnder tne leet,
and there is no drip from tbe eaves, when snow
lies on the roof, rooms should be ventillated.
Pure air should be admitted through open doors
and windows so that the oxygen consumed by
flame and by respiration may be replaced, and
the effete and poisonous matter thrown off by
the body thoroughly driven off. As one of our
best writers on household science remarks, ven
tilation is a question of dollars and cents. But
how much wiser he is' who chooses to pay a large
coal bill and enjoy fresh air in bis winter sitting
room than he who keeps everything .shut ni,
that heat may not be lost, and has a long doctor's
bill to settle in the spring, and mayhap a grave
to cut through the frozen turf.

Says a. physician in Health and Horn:
It is surprising how eagerly everybody rushes
at a fainting person, aqd strives to raise him np,
and. especially to keep the head erect. There
mutt be an instinctive apprehension that if a per
son seized with a tainting' or fall fit into the re
cumbent position, death is more imminent. I
must have driven a mile to-day while a lady,
fainting, was held upright. I found her pulseless
white, and apparently dying, and I believe if I
had delayed ten minutes longer she wonld really
have died. I laid her bead down on alewer level
than her body, and immediately color retained to
ber lips sod checks, and. she became, conscious.
To tbe excited group of friends I said: "Always
remember this fact namely: fainting is caused
by a waut of blood in the britn;-lbe heart ceases
to act with sufficient" force' to -send the nsnal
amount of blood to the brain, and hence tbe per
son louses consciousness because the functions of
the brain ceases. Restore the blood to the brain,
and instantly tbe person recovers. Now, thongh
the blood is propelled to all parts of the body by
tbe action of the heart, yet it is still nnder the
iuduenceof the laws ef gravitation; In tbe erect
Knitiou .the Wood ascends to tbe head against
gravitation, and the supply to the brain is dimin
ished, as compared with theccnmbent position,
tbe heart's pulsation beiDg-'eqnal. If, then, you
place a person in a sitting position, whose heart
has nearly ceased to beat, his brain will fail to
receive tbe blood, while if yon lay him down,
with tbe head lower than the heart, blood will
run into the brain by the mere force of gravity;
and in fainting, in sufficient quantity tb restore
ennciousuess. Indeed, nature teaches ns how to
manage faintiiigpersons, fer.they always fall, and
frequently are at once restored by the recumbent
positsou into which they are thrown.

chester physician, Dr. Crompton, "who lyis patch
edor the true cause, thinks differently. He at
tributes the, first-mentioued distortion to a habit
some youngsters delight in, of nibbing the soles
of one foot agaiust tbe other. Some will goto
sleep with the soles pressed together They'ap
pcar to enjoy tbe contact only when" the feet are
naked. They don't attempt to make it when tbe
feet are socked or slippered. So the remedy is
obvious keep tbe baby's soles covered. Knock

ish habit, that of sleeping on the side, nithone
leg tucked into the hollow behind the other. He
has found that where oare leg has been bowed in
ward more than the other, the patient has slept
ou one side. 'and the uppermost member has been
tbe one inftst deformed. Here the preventative is
to' pad tbe inafdas of the knees, so as to keep thrni
apart, and let the limbs grow freely tbeir owu

To Restore Scratched Fobxitcrk. Scrane
one pound of beeswax into shavings in a pan ; add
half a gallon spirits of turpentine, and one pint
linseed oil. Let it remain twelve hours, then
stir it well with a stick into a liquid; while stir
ring, add one-quarter pound sbelac varnish and
oue ounce alkauet root. Pht this mixture into a
gallon jar.-and stand it before, the fire, or in the
oven, for a week (to keep it jnst warm;) shake it
up three or four times a day. Then strain it
through a hair sieve and bottle it.. Ponr about a
teaspoonful on a wail or baize, go lightly over tbe
face and other parts of mahogany furoitnre, then
rub briskly with a similar wad dry, and in three
Ax exchange gives these directions for cut
ting off tbe neck of a bottle: With a strong
twine a yard or less in length, make one turn
around the neck, rapidly move the bottle from
one end of tbe string to the other, tbat the fric
tion may heat the part; while hot, dip in cold
water and the glass is cracked off as clean and
smooth as if cntby a diamond. A few strokes or
movements with the strinc are all that is rennired.
A bottle may be cut in two by the same process,
if strips of,paper are pasted around it to keep tbe
string from slipping from the place desired.
. Felons ox the Finger. Many persons are
liable to extreme suffering from felons on the
finger. These afflictions are not only painfnl but
not nnfrequently oecasson permanent crippling
of the members affected.. The following simple
concoction is recommended as a sure cure for
this distressing ailment! Take common rock salt,
such as is used for salting pork and beef, dry it
in an oven, 'then Doand it fine and mix it 'with
spirits of turpentine in eqnal parts. Pnt it on a
rag and wrap it around tbe thumb, and as it gets
dry pnt on some more, and in twenty-Tour hours,
we are assured the felon will be dead.
Hints to Housekeepers. If your flat Irons are
rough and smuky,rab them well; it will prevent
tbem from sticking to anything starched and
make them smooth.
Rub your griddle with fine salt before yon
grease it, and your cake will not stick.
Cedar chests are best to keep cIothingshi, for
moths are never found in them,
When clothes have acquired an unpleasant
odor by being kept from the air, charcoal laid in
tbe folds will soon remove it.
