Advice to free Planters.
1st. For the orchard ite, select If possible,
tost tUtaltd aad naturally tceH drained loca
tion. A goed firm soit with substratum of
gravel or limestone ia desirable. Whatever
the aspect, do not hara it hemmed in with tim
ber trtes so as to prevent the free circulation of
air atall timet ; avoid a closely protected south
2d. Prepare the ground by deep plowing and
snbsoUine to the depth of sixteen inches or
nM. MrweiallT If the snbeoil is s stiff day. If
the land is level raise a ridge bysueesssive
plosrings of narrow lands, on which set the trees,
o that no surface water may remain aear the
Sd. Lay off and stake the margin of the or
chard plat correctly before eetling a tree, then
with the plow run a deep farrow on the line of
the rows, or on the ridge one way, then stake
the other way at exactly right angles, being
careful to prsssrve the mtrgia stakes until tne
trees are all set.
4th. Purchase only such trees as yon are con
fident will do well in your location. Trait not
to seedlings, as thrce-foarths of them will prove
tender ninety-nine one-handredths will prore
xomparatiTely worthless in fruit, and not one
farmer in ten does or will properly top-graft
them after coming into bearing. This work
should all be done in the nursery. Select for
general orcharding only a few well tried sort.
For the amateur there is a large list or tnose
which frem their peculiar qualities, may well re
pay the trouble of planting. Selectiete branch
d ttoeky trees, two to four years from the graft;
the jouneer the tree, the better the investment
'usually; look out for young and healthy roots
and plenty of them. Small fibres, called annual
roots, or feeders, cannot always bo preserved,
but 'they are euily replaced if the main roots
are vigorous, hence, the necessity of thortening
in the top when set out, that the tree sap may
sot be exhausted before these feeders have got
to. work again, but never trim up a tree the Jirtt
gear, except suckers which should be rubbed off
as they appear.
5th. When you take your trees from the nur
sery or package, never expose theas unnecessa
rily to the sun and wind; heel them in immedi
ately, and take up only and as many and as fast
as wanted to plant. Never dig a hole deeper
than the plow runs, 'unlets you dig to a porous
-subsoil. Make the grouad one vast hole with
the subsoiler either before or after planting.

Uinta on Fattening Pork.
-ItuwMl wi4k.aMnr-fcnnfa to put this off
until cold weather sets in. The pigs run in the
woods, the road, or the pasture, picking up a
scanty living, and come to the pens lean and
hungry, when they ought to be fattened. In
our practice we keep pigs in the sty the year
round. We find them quite too valuable co
laborers In the manufacture of manure to allow
them to waste "their sweetness upon the dssert
air." A pig is worth ten dollars a jear for this
purpose alone, if you will give him the material
to work with and plenty of food. But possibly
it may pay for a little time in the summer, to
keep the sow and pigs in a good clover pasture
where grass is more plenty than cern upon the
farm. If this be done, all of them Intended for
the butcher by Christmas, should be shut up im
mediately, and be fed with all they can eat.
A squealing pig is worst for the owner's pocket
than for his ears. It is much easier to make
pork in September and October than in Decem
ber and January. No extra food is wasted in
keeping up the animal heat. It all goeB to fat
And muscle. Variety of food is a matter of
much Important in fattening swine. At this
aeason a great variety is euily commanded.
The gardtn, if it it a good one, yields a great
tnany refuse articles, squashes, beets, carrots,
aelons, tomatoes, and corn, which will find a
good market In the sty. One of the best arti
cles of food for them is sweet corn, eut up by
the roots and fed whole. They are very fond
-of it, and it makes them thrive very fast. A
half acre near the sty may be profitably cultiva
ted every year expressly for this purpose. If
this be not on hand, com from the field may be
fed the same way once a day. Bat swine need
something more than green stuff however nutri
tious, to make them fatten rapidly.
A dry, warm place for sleeping is another Im
portant item In keeping swine thrifty. They
should have a good sty with roof and board floor,
and plenty of straw so that they can keep them
selves clean. Witfa these conditions perk can
be aad very fast, and the sty will be found to
pay as well as any part of the farm arrange
By most of the .modes now in use, the beef
hen nam teo much impregnated with salt, and
is not, as a consequence, so fine for eating. By
the'following process this difficulty is prevented.
and the beef will keep till the following sum
mer: To eight gallons of water add two pounds
of brown sugar, one quart of molasses, four oun
ces of saltpetre, and fine salt until it will float
a egg. It has been repeatedly tried and
found very fine. A famous beef eater says it is
the only good way.
Hoirto Plant Blackberry Seed.
Afritad who has been very successful in
growing blackbsrry seed, recommends to plant
the seed in Autumn any time after the gather
ing, until the ground freexes. Put it on a nice
seed bed, covering with scarcely half an inch of
a mixture of sand with leaf-mold, or light muck
ia equal quantities, so as to allow the tender
shoot to break through the light soil readily.
e " Charcoal for Pigs.
As this is the season o( she year principally
dsroted to the fattening of porkers, it should
not be forgotten that a box containing some
charcoal sOTbld be placed In every hogpen.
Experience has proven that its use In this Stan
ner tends to maintain the nnimtls in a healthy
condition, and conduces to more rapid fattening.

"Church -and Slate."
A Democrat of the Grand River Valley, not
often seen in church, recently attended a Meth
odist pray tr-mee ting. We shall call him Squlg
gle, by way of concealment. In a shirt time
his countenance lost its usual oily, jolly look,
and he became oblivious of the solemnities go
ing on around him, and was plunged in a pro
found reverie over the recent defeat of his party
in Maine, which he had been discussing that
morning. As he reflected, liia face naturally-
elongated, and his jaw dropped. Noticing his
serious and solemn look, and not remembering
ever to have seen him before, one of the breth
ren took him to be a stranger of a religious tum
of mind, and leaned over his bench and re
" Brother, these are refreshing seasons."
Bquiggle gazed vacantly at the speaker, and
groaned inwardly. The brother pursued:
"' It is good to be here."
Bquiggle, still absorbed in reverie, groaned

At the word " state," the eyes of our Demo
cratic friend lost their dreamy look, and his jaw
clashed into place like a rat-trap.
"State-!" he exclaimed, bringing down his

bench, with an emphasis that startled the wor
thy brother greatly. "H 11! it's gone Black

While Tom Corwin was a member of the
General Assembly of the State of Ohio.Jie
brought in a bill for the abolition of public pun
ishment at the whipping-post. He made a
speech thereon, to which an elderly member
replied as follows:
" The gentleman is not as old as I am, and
has not seen so much of the practical operation
of the system of punishment which he desires
to abolish. When.I lived in Connecticut, if a
fellow stole a horse, or cut up any other rustics,
we used to tie him right up, and give him a real
good thrashln'; and he always cleared right
out, and wc never saw him any more. It's the
best way of getting rid of rogues that ever was
tried, and without any expense to the State."
Corwin rose and replied: " Mr. Speaker, I
have often been puzzled to account for the vast
emigration from Connecticut to the West; but
the gentleman last up has explained it to my
The bill was passed, without farther discus
sion. -4 AJudicial J?hy
Judge Norton was solemn, stem and digni
fied to excess. He was also at once egotistical
and sensitive to ridicule. Judge Nelson was a
wit, careless of decorum, and had a sharp voice.
He did not like Judge Norton. At a bar sup
per, Judge Norton, in an (elaborate speech, re
ferring to the early days of Wisconsin, the rude
practice of that period, and the discomforts of
a profession in that country, described, in a tra
gic manner, a thunder-storm which once over
took him in riding the old circuit.
" It was a night in the forest; the scene was
awful, and," said the Judge, "I expected every
moment the lightning would strike the tree un
der which I had taken shelter."
" Why, then," interrupted Nelson, in his pe
culiar squeal, "teJty tit thunder, then, didn't you
jet under another tree?"
A Good Answer.
"The post-office In our village," writes a
Vermont lady, "was kept in the bar-room of
the tavern, a great resort for loungers. An old
chap, more, remarkable for his coarseness and
infidelity than his good manners, was sitting
there one day with a lot of boon companions,
when the Methodist preacher, a new corner, en
tered and asked for his letters.
" Old 8wipes asked bluntly: Are you the
Methodist parson, just come here to preachl'
"I am,' pleasantly replied the minister.
" Well,' said Swipes, 'will you tell me how
old the devil hV
" ' Keep your otcnfamQjf record!' quickly re
turned the preacher, and left the room, amidst
the roars of the company."
A certain elder, who was holding a series of
meetings at a place where but little assistance
could be had, was overjoyed, one Sabbath mor
ning, to see a brother, who was a good preach
er, ride up, and immediately insisted that he
should preach for him.
"No," said the brother, "but if you wish, I
will preach this evening."
Very well," said the elder, " I will prepare
the way for yon, by preaching from the text:
He that cometh after me is greater than 1 "
"If yon do," said the brother, ."I will preach
in the evening front: ' AU that came before sae
were thieves and robbers.' "
A Boy's Joke.
As one of the Dover, England, volunteers was
passing along, rifle in hand, he was accosted by
a precocious urchin, who called oat:
"Who shot the dog J"
This saying our friend appeared by no means
to relish r so'toming sharply, he said:
"If you are not off, I'll shoot a donkey!"
Whereupon the boy, calling out to one of his
companions, rejoined: '
"I say, Bill,, look here-this 'era fellow is
going to commit suicide!"

what is the best method of storing 7 I think I

AHtwrju Pare the melon and cut it into
small pieces, taking out the seeds, pulp, &c. ;
put it in a preserving kettle, with water suffi
cient to keep from burning, and atew until ten
der enough to run eaaily through a cullender or
seire. The substance will then resemble fresh
apple sauce in appearance, but is very insipid.
To give it a pleasant acidity, put in a little tar
taric acid; then add considerable sugar, and the
grated rind of a fresh lemon. Bake the mix
ture with upper and under crust, same as apple
pie. To make a very, nice pie, resembling an
apple custard, take a pint and a half of the
melon, season as above, one quart of milk, six
eggs, a small quantity of melted batter, and
bake with an under crust.
In answer to Mr. Embree's separate ques
tions, we reply : 1st. The melon should be ripe.
2d. Weknow of no positive way of ascertaining
when they are ripe, except by cutting, as tbey
always retain a greenish appearance. 3d. They

A singular and fatal disease, called diptheria,
is prevailing extensively both In the Eastern
and Western States. It is a disease of the
throat, but the symptom by which it may be
known from other similar diseaset "is the for
mation of a membrane which increases gradu
ally until the sufferer is literally strangled to
death. It is sometimes accompanied by ulcera
tion and great prostration of the system, and at
others, by none of these symptoms, yet in ei
ther case it is equally fatal. To arrest the for
mation of this membrane ia equivalent to cur
ing the complaint, and in most instances may
be done in the following manner : In the early
stages of the development, which is always
manifested by soreness and swelling of the
throat, let the patient use a simple solution of
salt and water as gargle, every fifteen minutes.
At the same time moisten a piece of flannel
with a solution of salt and water, made warm
as the patient can bear it, and bind it around the
throat, renewing it as often as the gargle is ad
ministered, and in the meantime, sprinkle fine
salt between the flannel and the neck. Use in
wardly some tonic or stimulant, either separate
ly, or if the prostration be great, use both to
gether. Counter irritants, such as mustard
poultices upon the throat, are efficacious in all
cases of simple sore throat, and often will avert
this more dangerous disease. This treatment
is extremely simple, and if used in the earlier
stages, will effect a complete cure.
Recipes for Jelly and Preserves.
Cinxa Jelly. Boil three quarts of new made
eider till it is reduced to one, skimming care
fully ; add two pints of white coffee sugar, and
boil fifteen or twenty minutes ; be careful not
to use too much sugar, less than two pints will
be better than more, and if the cider is very
rich, as the last pressing from the cheese would
be, one and a half pints would be sufficient for
one quart of the boiled-down cider.
Ami Pitxssavxsj Pare and core any apple
that does not cook to pieces easily, and boil them
in cider that you are boiling down either for
apple butter or jelly, until they are transparent;
then ssake a syrup of a pint of white sugar to-a
pint of cider, well boiled and skimmed, and
pour over them, after they are placed' in the
jars, boiling hot. - .
There is no complaint more harassing than
Asthma. A physician, an intimat friend of
ours! pledges 'himself to cure' this diesnrig
disease with the following simple remedy
"Take 1 ox. of sulphur, 1 ox. cream-tartar,
1 as. senna, os. annis seed, pulverize the
same, and take one teaspoonful in about two
tablespbonfuls of molasses on going to bed, or
at SBCb time through the day as may best suit
the patient ; the dose once a day stay be in
creased or diminished a little, as saay best suit
the state of the bowels of the individoaL Cta.
To Preserve Milk.
If milk be Introduced into bottles, then well
corked and put into a pint or cold water aad
gradually raised to the boiHag point, and after
being allowed to cool, be taken out and put
awayjn a coot place, tne milk may be kept per
fectly sweet for hilt a year. Or It may be
evaporated to dryaass, by a-reaUe heat, and
under constant stirring. A dry mam will thus
be obtained, which, when dissolved in'hot wa
ter, ia said to possess all the Qualities of the
