human beings. Of course all it not lost by

J Keeping Pampkins.
Pumpkins for stock are best kept in a dry loft
with the flooring quite open, so as to allow airto
circulate as freely as possible between them.
Were it not that they take much room we should
prefer storing them in a single tier; but usually
for want of this when a large crop i. to be se
cured, they must be piled on each other. In
this case we would recommend their not bsing
placed more than three or four feet deep. If
piled together in too large heaps they will gath
er moisture and rot rapidly; when frotenthey
may be preserved a long time; but they should
be cooked beforo giring them to stock, other
wise they may do them great injury. On the
whole we prefer feeding out pumpkins as fast as
passible after ripening, and before tho cold
weather sets in. They arc of a cold watery na
ture, and unless cooked, wo doubt whether they
are near as beneficial to animals in frosty weath
er, as they are in milder; or indeed any kind of
fruit, at such stock of good breed, usually do
well upon them.

It is known that smutty wheal will produce
emutty wheat unless something is done to pro-
rent it at the time of seeding. My plan is to
take about a peck of strong slacked lime, and
mix it with ten bushels of wheat, and let it
atand on the floor or in bags a few daya before
flowing; before Bowing, run it through the fan
ning mill so as to not make it unpleasant hand
ling. I tried the abore method last spring, and the
consequence is, I hare no smutty wheat this
year. If any of your readers bare smutty
wheat, I advise them to try this method, and I
will guarantee tbey will have no smutty wheat
for market. Great pains should be taken -to
procuro the licit of wheat for seed, both spring
and winter wheat; and the utmost care should
be taken to cleanso it of every particle of foul
seed. Cor. Frame Farmer.
I'eneh Tree's .Liable to'Wintcr Kill.
In many sections of our country, peach tress,
especially those ene and two years planted out,
and luxuriant In growth, are liable to be destroy
ed during the winter. This arises in a measure
from an unripened condition of the tree at the
approach of winter. As a remedy, in part, we
hare heretofore advised, and now again advise,
a corsplata aliortaaing back of ilia jmmr'a growth
ay one half, early in October, or the loner part
of September. Trees so shortened back, mature
the remaining buds and wood,- and before they
again commence growing aad throwing out
aide shoots, cold weather ia upon them, and
they are in a fully ripened condition to endure
its rigors. In clay land, turfase drains should
be made with a boe or plow so that water will
sever stand on or about the roots. O. Farmer.
An Knglish experimenter, last autumn tied up
four bullocks under a hovel, in separate boxes,
and kept three in one box, and left seven loose
in two yards, four in one and three in the other,
each having a hovel or shed to run under. The
fourteen beasts were all alike ia age and were
treated in the same way, namely: eight pounds
of linseed cake each, per day, three quarters of
a bushel of mangold wurtzels, and hay and oat
straw distributed equally to all. Those shut up
in the boxt, and those tied up, were all ready
for market first, and those fed in the yards re
placed them in the boxes, but when they came
to be marketed; it was found that they were
not ready a month as early as those that were
tied or fastened up.
To Keep Cabbages.
. Tho editor of the German town Telegraph
gives the following as bit mode of having green
cabbage all winter:
"It is this: Dig shallow trenches in a dry part
of the garden eay two feet apart in which
plant the cabbages, which must be care
fully taken from the bed with all the root!
preUy closely together, then erect over them'a
low scaffolding, the posts being two feet from
the ground, let it bo a little lower in the middle
to carry off the water, and cover with straw or
corn fodder, butts down. This costs little labor
or skill, and will give you cabbage through the
winter and spring about as good as in October."

The Wrong Name.
A company was drawn up in line, and the of
ficer began to call the roll. As he proceeded,
he came to the name of "Ebeneter Mead."
He called it no answer though the man sup
posed to own it, was a few steps before him in
" Ebcnezcr Mead!" exclaimed the officer, in
a loud roiec. Still no answer.
" Eben-e zer Mead!" waa again thundered
forth from the mouth of the indignant ofieer,
still louder than before. There still being no
answer, the officer stepped a pace or two for
ward " Is there any Mead here!"
" My name is Mead," replied one of the men
" Ebtn Mead."
"Rascal!" continued the enraged oncer,
"why don't you answer when your name is
calied? I will call it once more Ebcntxer
There was still no answer.
"Rascal! if you don't answer when I call
you again, I'll hare you eourt-martialed!"
" Sir," replied the man, " My name is Bben,
and not Ebenezer Mead. Tour name, I be-
here, is Peter Read. Now, would yon answer
if I should call you Peteretxer Read?"
It is unnecessary to state that at the next
call, the officer gare Mr. Mead his true baptis
mal name. .
In thoso good old times when Dick Riker was
Recorder of New York, a man by the name of
Wilson was taken up on the charge of stealing
some spoons. He bad no person to defend him;
but a lawyer named Graham getting an oimor-
tnnlty to hare a word wlthalm-in private, agieeuT
to get the fellow acquitted for ten dollars. The
lawyer told him not -to say a word bnt "spoons"
to all inquiries put to him. Wilson was ar
raigned. "Hare yon any counsel" the Recorder
"Spoons!" said Wilson.
" Haro you any counsel T the Recorder de
manded, still louder.
"Spoons!" replied Wilson.
" Mr. Graham interposed: uYpur Honor per
ceives that this man is a fool, and by no means
in a fit state to be tried."
The Clerk put the usual question, " Guilty
or not guilty?"
"Spoons!" answered Wilson.
The Recorder asked what the man was ap
for; and finding that it was for stealing a few
spoons, and thinking the fellow was oaly half
witted, told him to go. Graham followed him
out, and demanded the ten dollar fee.
"Spoons!" said Wilson; and to all the law
yer's demands, he answered only " Spoons!"

Uaefn! Medical Hints.
If a person swallow any poison whaterer or
has fallen into conrnlsjons from having over
loaded the stomach, an Instantaneous remedy,
more eficient and applicable in a large number
of cases than any aalf-a-dosen medicines we
can now think of, it a tesspoonful of common j
salt and as much ground mustard, stirred rapid
ly in a teacup of water warm or cold, and swal
lowed instantly- It is tearely down before
it begins to come up, bringing with it the
remaining contents of the stomach; and lest
there be any remnant of poison, however small.
let the white of an egg, or a teaeupful of strong
coffee be swallowed as soon as the stomach ia
quiet; because these rcry common articles nuM
fy a larger number of rirulent poisons than any
medidaes in the shops. In cases of scalding
or burning the body, immersing the part in cold
water gives entire relit", as Instantaneously as
the lightning. Meanwhile, get some common
dry flour, and apply it an inch or two thick on
the injured part, the moment it emerges from
the water, and keep sprinkling on the flour
through anything like a pepper box cover, so as
to put it on erenly. Do nothing else; drink
nothing but water; eat nothing, until improve
ment commences, except some dry bread soften
ed in rerr weak tea of some kind. Cures of
frightful burning hare been performed in this
war as wonderful as they are painless. We
once sared the life of an infant which had been
inadvertently drugged with laudanum and which
was fast sinking into the sleep which has no wa
king, by giring it strong coffee, cleared with the
white of an egg, a teaspoonful ereiy fire min

Tke Resuscitation of Drowning Persons.
The Royal National Life-Boat Association,
of which the Duke of Northumberland is Pres
ident, and Thomas Baring, M.P., Deputy Chair
man, has issued a circular of twenty articles,
containing minute instructions for the resuscita
tion of drowning persons. The first instruction
directs that efforts to restore breathing and to
prevent any further diminution of the warmth
of the body be commenced immediately and
energetically, and be persevered in for hours,
until a medical man pronounces that life is ex
tinct. We hare beard the following incident,
which illustrates the value of this direction:
"A young gentleman a student of Harvard
College, while bathing, a few days since, in a
river near this city, suddenly sunk. As be did
not re-appear immediately, the alarm was given,
and an exprienced swimmer diving in the place
where he was last seen, found him ia a sitting
posture at the bottom. When brought to the
surface he seemed quite lifeless. But his com'
panion bearing him to a stake close at hand,
held him abore the water by its assistance, and
while in that difficult position, succeeded, by
pressing upon his chest, in keeping up an im
perfect artificial respiration. Fifteen minuutes
are supposed to hare elapsed before a boat could
be brought to the spot; but so energetic bad
been the efforts of the rescuer, that before be'
ing lifted into it, he showed signs of vitality,
Not the least remarkable circumstance connec
ted with the affair is the fact that the young
man was able to attend an evening party a few
hours later, and set out the next morning on a
long journey without any inconvenience."
Origin of a Current Adage.
Our readers have all heard the saying that
"nine tailors make a man." Possibly, however,
some oCtheaa wowM lilt to Jcnow the origin of
the saying. Here it is: "In 1743, an orphan
beggar boy applied for alms at a tailor's shop in
London, in which nine jomeymen were employ
ed. His forlon but intelligent apperanee touch
ed the hearts of the tailors, who gave him a
shilling each; with this capital the young hero
purchased fruits which he retailed at a profit
From this beginlngt by industry and persever
ance, he rose to distinction and usefulness.
When his carriage was built, he had painted on
the pannel "Nine tailors made me a man."
The First lint Shop in the Country,
The Danbnry (Conn.) Times, in a history of
hat manufacturing in this country, says that
the first building ever erected in this country
as a hat shop was built in Danbury, and the first
bat ever made in the United States was made in
that town by Zadoe Benedict, abotjt the year
1780. Since that time many fortunes hare been
mads in Danbury in this branch of trade. In
those days hats were made of fur now, mostly
of pasteboard and silk. The former cost from
$6 to $10 each, but were never graceful
or light. The modem hat costing but half that
sum, Is more elegant, but not so easy to the
