What man or beast doe not enjoy it T Ery
wild animal, from tbe lordly lion to tbe insignifi
cant mouse, bestows careful pains irpott iu nes
ting place. The universal instinct whick prompts
thu case, indicates that it is a matter of no small
importance in t he physical economy. About one
tbird of an animal's whole life is passed in res
ting, and nsinro intended that during this time
its condition sbonld be the most favorable for re
storing and building up the organization. In
tbe care of domestic animals, kept for profit, this
point is worthy of special attention. Comforta
ble bedding directly favors the increase of fat and
muscle by helping to retain the animal heat, and
also by adding to quiet and comfort. In this way
a bundle of straw on the outside may be equiva
lent to a feed of grain inside. Horses are usually
well cared for iu this respect, with a view to
keep their muscles in goad order, as every tyro
must know that sleeping upon a hard board will
scarcely gite pliancy to tbe limbs. But good
bedding is of littU benefit to cattle. If it be
doubted, experiment for two weeks -with milch
cows; give them comfortable litter the first w eek
aud allow them to lie npou the frozen ground tho
second, then note tbe difference recorded in the
milk pail ; it will be very great.
Straw and refuse hay are generally used, and
are wellsuitedforbrdding. Cuttiug into lengths
of say six inches, ha some advantages, though it
would hardly pay if required to be cut by hand.
Where these can not lie had cheaply, as is often
times the case in villages, an excellent substitute
may be found in leaves. They possess oue advan
tage orer straw, in making the very best manure
for gardening, when mixed w ith animal excre
ment. Spent tan bark, wall dried, is another
good substitute, also valuable as a mulch. A
layer of dried muck, six inches thick, serves a
cood uuniosc fur beddinir. It is a most excellent
absorbent, and will remain iu good condition fori
some lime wimoui ueing cnauged. When well
saturated it is. just the article fur the garden or
the field. With proper care in. furniahinir abnn.
dant bedding fur stock, a largo accession to the
manure heap will be made, sufficient of itself to
pay for tbe trouble. ""
In one respect, farmers commoulr show tbe
worst of their management in fjttenine- hoes.
Theso animals appreciate and enjoy cleanliness,
yet their on ers make them live in dirt, and then
charge tbcm with a fondueis for filth. This is
oppression and slander combined. Kvcry person
laminar witu thur lubits knows that when clean
straw beds and other comforts are given them,
they are scrupulous to keep them clean. When
shut up in a narrow pen, whero they mnst rat,
sleep anu live iu one apartment, tliry cannot but
lie uncomfortable; ami such a condition

We bear farmers who raise grain say they hate
more straw'than they can use. while at the same

Animals can -never thrive well nnless kent

In all common fires, a large portion of ths fuel
used escapes nnconsuraad, becauso of the lack, of

smoke which we see disperse in the air. A small
part of this bulges continually in our chimneys,
n the form of "soot," until its accumulation
causes it to take fire, and we all know with
what intensity it barns.
When this smoke escapes into tbe onen air. it
meets oxygen enough indeed; bnt by that time
it has cooled beyond the point of inflammabil
ity, aud floats off. It is also generally so atten
uated that one particle bunting dues not inflame
its neighboring particle, and tbns keep np the

elsewhere, A burning wood is an immense im
perfect furnace. In the process of burning, a
large amonnt of nuconsnmed carbon (smoke) was
evolved, that filled tho air to complete satura

of wood gas, and in the case of pine forests, with

Tills loatnaoina disease Bade it appearance in
several of oar cities aad large towaa dnring tbe
past summer, and many ease, bothof eeoiueut
small-pox and of varioloid, were reported. In
tbe city of Lowell it raged for several months,
aud many deaths occurred from it. A strange
feeliug has been engendered in England, and to
some extent in this country, against vaccination,
which is a most uujust and absurd prejudice. It
is born of ignorance and vulgar conceit, and
where it exists, small-pox will exist. The author
ities in all cases should insist npou thorough vac
cination in communities where the disease pre
vails. The following instructions for controlling
small pox contagion, enforced at Lowell, proved
effective in arresting the spread of the disease:
1. Persons attacked with small-pox or varioloid,
and all infected clothing of the same, must be im
mediately seperated from all other persons liable
to contract or communicate the disease.
2. Nurses aud the infected clothing of such
persons mnst be treated as in quarantine.
3. None but nurses and the at tending physicians
will be allowed access to persons sick with small
pox or varioloid.
4. Patients mnst not leave the premises until
they, together with the bedding and clothing.
have been disinfected, and permission' given by
some physician of tbe Board of Health,
I. All bedding and personal clothing infected
with tbe small-pox contagion, which can without
injury, mnst be washed in boiling water.
i. Infected feather-beds, pillows aud hair-mat-tre-weu
must have contents taken ont and thor
oughly fumigated, and" ticks washed iu boiling
3. Infected straw and excelsior mattresses must
hare contents removed and bunted, and ticks
washed in boiliug water.
4. Infected blankets, sheets and pillow-cases,
aud all articles in contact with or nsed by the
patittitmiist be" washed iu boiliug water.
5. Persoual clothing and bedding, particularly
comforters, which cannot be wet without injury,
mnst be disinfected by baking or fumigation.
C Iustead of using boding watsr as the disin
fectant, tbe following chemical -process with cold
water may sometimes be conveniently substituted.
Dissolve into a wash-tub containing eight gallons
of cold water one pound of tbe hyposulphale of
soda. Immerse all the articles of clothing and
bedding nsed by or around the patient, and when
thoroughly saturated add half a pint of sulphuric
acid, first diluting it with one gallon of water.
Stir the whole, and allow the clothe to soak an
bonr; then wring them out, rinse three timet in
cold water, and hang tbcm ont to dry.
7. Disinfection of houses, clothing, and bedding
by fumigation may be effected by filling the
closed room with the fumes of sulphurous acid,
or of chlorine gas. The first can be accomplished
by pouring half a pound of sulphur, in an iion
dish, ponring on a little alcohol and igniting it,
thereby causing the sulphur to burn aud give off
Sulphurous acid fames. The second can be ac
complished by moistening with water four pounds
of chloride of lime, contained in an earthen or
wooden vessel, and adding thereto a pint of mu
riatic acid, to liberate the chlorine gas. Clothing
and bedding, to be well fumigated, must be se
arated as much as possible, and bung upon the
wans ana inruiinre 01 toe room, so mat every
thing will be thoroughly permeated. The rooms
should be kept closed an hour or two after being
charged with gas by either method, and then
thoroughly vsntilUted. So attempt should be
made to fumigate tbe sick room in this manner
while It is occupied by the patient.
8. On tbsreooverv. removal, or death ofaverv
case of small-pox or varioloid, the clothing, bed
ding, and premises will be disinfected, in accor
dance with tho above rules, under the directions
of oue or more physicians employed for the pur
pose by the Board of Health.
9. The physicians employed in disinfecting
may, cause removal, destruction, or burial of such
infected beddinir and clothimr as nur. in their
juuguieni, saem to require it, or wlucli tbev shall
keep a correct record, with date, kind of article,
wuetnerueworoiu, estimated value, name aud
residence of the owner. No person shall bnm
any contagioned articles unless authorized by the
Board of Health.
10. The sick room should be kept well ventil
ated, with snch precautions as not to expose the
patient to direct currents of air, and should be
occasionally fumigated, slightly, by throwing
upon a heated surface a few traxpuonfuls of a
solution of carbolic acid, made by dissolving one
ounce of crystalized carbonic acid inaqnartof
rain water. Pieces of cloth may be soaked iu this
solution, and snspended iu the room, also iu the
hall-was adjoining. All vessels for receiving
discharges of any kind from patients mnst lie
emptied immediately after use and cleansed with

weaiuer invites tliem to ijnit their cozy homes
and begin their destmctixe oierations for the

nne toothed, to lie an excellent tool in rasping off
the superfluous bark. It accomplishes it more
uniformly than a hoe, trowel, or a short handled
hoe, however, is very good, when the other may
not be HMcd.. -.After the hark is removed,
the trunks should b washed thnmiicldv with a.
preparation of w halo oil soap and nater. say in
proportion of a pound of tho soap to four gallons
of water. It can bo applied to larce trees with a
Uickorj- broom or a stilt whitewash brush, and to
small trees, epfcinlly dwarfs, with the hand
scrub brush. Sickly trees, w hich cau at this sa
son lie easily deducted by being covered with a
sieciesof fuiig or jicrhapa more properly a pe
culiar insecti emus deposit should be scrubbed
so as to completely remove this. The mixture
will of itself benefit tbe tree, while tbe removal
rrom the stem of all extraneous and injurious
siilwtauces will give to it new health aud vigor

A French chemist states that tbe best way to
treat such stains is by an application of tbe sul

caustic potash. By this means the coloring mat

converted into a soapy, substance, which can be
scratched off with a small piece efwood, the nail,
or nibbed off with sand. By washing with a little
