The Ritual and Secrecy Essential.
John D. Wallis, of Illinois, in reply to
a communication from E. M. Smith, in
the Hoosier Patron, favoring the abolish
ment of the ritual, says:
What would we have leit if all of the
grange features were abolished? Noth
ing but a club meeting, which would not
amount to much not saying anything
detrimental to clubs existing, yet they
soon lose their interest A great number
of the granges which I have organized
were formerly club. Worthcy Patrons,
I claim that the ritual with the secrecy
of the order are the very elements of suc
cess. -When we reflect upon the tact
there arc orders which have existed for
ages amid wars and persecutions, when
the members dare not let it be known
that they belonged to the fraternity;
when their meetings were not in town
and cities as at present, but on the
mountain tops and in the valleys, with
pickets thrown out to guard against the
approach of enemies I say when we re
flect upon these facts, we may well
pause and ask, why such permanency
and success ? The only solution we have
is the secrecy, fraternity and mutual
benefits. If then, these elements are so
effectual in securing seccess, permanency
and prosperity in other orders, why not
as effectual in promoting the same in
terest in the grange? Bays, let us rally
to our standard and hurl back the hand
that would strike a death blow to onr
noble order, come from what source it
may, whether from in or outside of the
gates. Yes, let us hold the ritual and
execute it in due form and with great
solemnity, and endeavor tojmpress upon
the minds of the initiated the noble prin
ciples inculcated. Let us use it in cul
tivating the minds with the harrow and
roller of good intent, preparing the mind
for the seeds of education; "whereby the
good husbandman and matron may re
ceive an hundred-fold of knowledge, and
make the principles inculcated and our
friendship su lasting as the colors in the
Give tho Children Unions.
A mother thus writes to the Herald of
"Once a week invariably, and it was
generally when we had cold meat
minced I gave the children a dinner
which was always hailed with delight
and always looked forward to this was
a dish of boiled "onion. 'TheMittle

best of all remedies far expelling what

in thiswise: The money lost ih'Kansas

' Harvesting Buckwheat.
EDITOR RuRAt, Would ! I have con
cluded to take up "Faberand give the
result of my experience. First, in liar'
vesting buckwheat, I havo found nothing
better than n reaper with dropper at
tachment, although tho old-fashioned
cradle is usually used. Two good men,
or three at most, can follow a reaper, as
all they have to do is to roll together
the gavel and set it on end ; then press
the top together so as to leave the gavel
in cone-shape, and then fasten the ex
treme top of the stalks together by giving
them a slight twist. If this is nicely
done, the wind will rarely overturn or
tear to pieces these very trim miniature
Tho threshing of buckwheat mast be
done when tho straw, and more espe
cially the kernel, is as dry as possible,
otherwise the kernels adhere quite 'ten
aciously to the parent stem; but when
perfectly dry, it drops at the slightest
touch. The methods for threshing arc
either with the flail or threshing machine
but never by tramping with horses as
has been erroneously suited, as 'thcker
nel is too brittle even to bear a 'man's
weight, unless in a thick body; and the
weight of a horse must necessarily crush
to powder much of it No place is as
good as a clean barn floor, although
many use a good green sward ; but in the
latter case much of necessity is lost in
If to be threshed with a flail, set the
gavels on end close enough to touch;
commence threshing on the top, and do
not allow the gavel to fall over on its
side, as a delay is thus occasioned by the
thick butts of the stalks. If the straw
is perfectly dry, but little turning is nec
essary. Tho nicest wav, however, if there is
much to thresh, is to use athreshlng'ma
chine. Remove most of the teeth from
the concaye and take a slow motion ;
four to six horses are enough to run the
thresher. My word for it, you will be
delighted bothwith the speed' and man
ner in which the work will bo done.
One word as to hauling the gavels, I
have found the best way is to put your
hay rack ou a sled or low truck, then
with a three ( r more) tined hay or ma
nure fork, lilt the gavel from the ground
placing it in the same upripht position
on the rack; nil the interstices with a-
second tier of gavels, and when you ar
rive at the threshing place, the gavels
may be removed without tangling and
placed on the floor or feeder. If the gav
els become tangled, much loss of seed by
shelling is inevitable.
The ravages in some sections this sea
son by the "hopper-'," have cut off many
long maturing crops, and given an im
mense opportunity for the growth of this
delicious breadstuff for winter consump
tion ; and we may often expect to hear
the'merry plash of the flapjack on the
bluiih cook-stove, and make many a
toothsome repast of these excellent cakes.

Rom and Cheese.
Moderate drinkers and defenders of
moderate drinking, always plead their
personal rights, and attempt to hold 'up
the absurdity of denying "liberty" to
human taste and appetite. A specimen
of their logic, and a sufficient answer to
it, can be seen in the following conversa
tion related by Mr. Gough. It shows
that the absurdity is entirely with the
A gentleman was dining at the table
of a lady who tcfused to tolerate one
drop of wine or spirits on her table, and
who, when asked to entertain one of the
British nobility, replied, "I can ; but it
must be understood that neither wine,
ale, nor spirits are offered in my house."
This gentleman sat at her table aud
"I enjoy a glass of wine, and I have
got .in the habit of using it. By and by
yon will take from us all our luxuries.
I think wine promotes digestion. Jlid
you never hear of a man who could.-not
eat cheese without hurting him ?"
She replied, "Did'you ever hear of a
man standing under the gallows, and
saying to the witnesses of the execution,
'.Now, my friends, take warning byme,
and never eatany cheese Y Or did you
ever read in the newspapers;'' when a man
is murdered in our streets, that 'those
men had been eating cheese ?' Show. me
that cheese produces nine-tenths of.thei

To Extinguish Kekoexe lames.
One of the ran-t ready means is to
throw a cloth of pome kind over the
flames, and thus stifle them ; but as the
cloth .is not always convenient to the
kitchen, where such accidents are most
likely to happen, some one recommends
flour as a substitute, and which, it is
said, promptly extinguishes the flames.
It rapidly absorbs the fluid, deadens the
flame, and can be readily gathered up
and thrown out of doors when the fire
To Keiove Forign Bodies from the Eye.
Ajnedical correspondent of the Lancet
makes a suggestion which may prove
usefJl on emergency to some of our
readers. He says: "In consequence of
the difficulty I experienced in removing
from a patient a portion of steel deeply
imbedded in the cornea, which did not
vield to spud or needle, some other
means of removing became necessary.
Dry, soft, white silk waste suggested
itself tome, and was wound around a
a thin piece of wood, so as to completely
envelope its end. This soft application
was brushed once backward and for
ward .horizontally over the part of the
cornea, where the foreign substance
.seemed fixed. To my astonishment it
was at once entangled by the delicate
but strong meshes of the silk, and was
withdrawn with the graicst case, caught
by the same. A gentleman in turning
steel at a lathe suddenly felt that a por
tion had entered his eye. lie went at
once to a sergon, who with the most
skillful manipulation failed to extract
the same, saying it would soon work out
of itself. The next morning the patient
saw me, having suffered severely since the
accident, and on the first application the
portion of steel was extracted."
Eggs as Diet.
On this subject, the Poultry Review
has the following pertinent and sugges
tive remarks: Would it not be wise to
substitute more eggs for meat in our
daily diet? About one-third of the
weight of an egg is solid nutriment
This is more than can be said of meat.
There aro no bones or tough pieces that
have to be laid aside. A good egg is'
made up of 10 parts of shell, 50 parts
white, and 30 parts yolk. The white of
an egg contains 8G per cent water, the
yolk of an egg 52 per cent. The average
of an egg is about two ounces. Practi
cally on egg is animal food, and yet there
is none of the disagreeable work of the
butcher necessary to obtain it. The
vegetirains of England- use eggs -freely
and many of these men arc SO and GO
years old, and have been remarkably
free from illnes. Eggs arc best when
cooked lour minutes. I his takes away
the animal taste that is offensive to some,
but does not so harden the white or yolk
as to make them hard to digest An egg
if cooked very hard is difficult of diges
tion, except by those with stout
stomachs: such eggs should be eaten
with bread and masticated very finely.
An egg spread on toast is food fit for a
king, if kiugs deserve any better food
than anybody else, which is doubtful.
Fried eggs are less wholsome than boiled
ones. An egg dropped into hot water is
not only a clean and handsome, but a
delicious morsel. Most people spoil the
taste of their eggs by adding pepper and
salt. A little sweet butter is the best
dressing. Eggs contain much phospho
ous, which is supposed to be useful to
those who use their brains much.
How to Can Corn.
Mrs. Emma Moody, lady assistant
steward Mt Vernon, Ind., Grange, com
municates to the Hoosicr Patron the fol
lowing plan for canning corn :
1. Get the best sweet corn, scald it on
the car and cut it nffwhile hot, puta pan
over a kettle of boiling water, to keep it
hot until you get enough to fill a can.
Have some weak brine boiling in a por
celain kettle. Fill your can within an
inch of the top with corn ; cover the
bottom with brine, leaving room for it
to swell ; seal the can while boiling hot
2. Dissolve one and one-fourth oun
ces of tartaric acid in one-half pint of
water; cut the corn from the cob; put
it in a vesslc over the fire and bring to
a boiling point; to each pint of corn al
low one tablespoonful of the solution.
Boil one-half hour, stirring occasionally,
then put the corn in quart cans and seal
tightly. When wanted for use, put the
corn into a bowl and stir in two thirds of
a teaspoonful of soua to each quart ol
corn. Let it stand one hour before cook
3. Cut the corn off tlic-cob and pack
closely, in quart cans; then 6older so
that every particle of air is excluded;
set the cans in a kettle of cold water and
bring to a boil ; let the corn boil twoand
a half hours in this sized cans (larger
cans.will require more time); when done
pour cold water into the kettle to cool
tll0 andcnabl cy0uto remove them
Wet Food for Horses.
At this Season of the year farm horses
are obliged to work very hard, and it is
not only right and just, but for the pe
cuniary interest of their owners to see
that they arc well fed. And it. seems to
mo that they ought not only to have
good food and plenty of it, but also it
should be given to them wet "I believe
a great many horses arc permanently in
jured by-'being kept in the summer,
when theywork, upon dry hay.and meal.
Just what injury will result from this
course of feeding cannot certainly be
foretold. Whether jt wilj tako the form
of derangement of Jthe djgestive organs
or affections' of the throat-ami lungsj'iiill
depend somewhat upon the natural ten
dencies' of the 'animals,' and-the quality
and condition of the food which they re
ceive. But injury of some kind will be
very likely to result It is but little
trouble to wet the food, and I am confi
dent that it is better and safer titan it is
to feed it dry. Fora horse that is at
work most of the time, I think cut feed
is the best that can be given. But if the
hay is not cut, it pays to throw on a lit
tle water. Feeding dry meal has been
highly recommended, and I have tried it
faithfully, but am not satisfied with the
results ; had rather put the meal in a
pail and mix with water. Lire Stock
Greenbacks and Graj backs.
When some one spoke, during the
Senate debates on finance, of the lesson
taugut oy tne uontedernte currency, a
gifted Senator explained that the green
backs was "scaled with blood," and was
therefore as good as gold. Irreverent
reference having been made to the fact
that the "graybacW had about as much
blood shed over them as the greenbacks,
it was further explained that blood
spuieu in ueiensc oi tuc union nau a
certain occult influence upon credit
which was lacking in the case of gore
from disloyal veins. Very few persons,
reflecting persons have accepted this
view of the question. We notice that
the rag-paper press is shy of refenence to
the history of Confederate currency.
In 1S61, the national bank note com
pany of New York printed $300,000,000
of one year Confederate notes, in denom
inations of less than $50. This issue at
first was nearly at par. A year after
ward it passed at 2 cents to tho dollar.
Meanwhile, fresh issues were poured
fourth. The printing presses "made
money" at a great rate. Col. Blanton
Duncan, who helped to beat the Demo
crat candidates in 1872 by setting up a
Bourbon side-show, helped to beat the
South by supplying its de-facto Gov
crment with measureless quantities of
rag-money. Tho currency he supplied
was adorned with various emblematic
vignettes, one of which, as he wrote the
Confederate Secretary of tho Treasury,
"represents the South rising in its might
and striking down the North and crippl
ing the eagle." The back of nearly all
these notes were originally white, but
handling them soon changed them to a
dingy gray, whence the name applied to
When currency cot so far down that
no body knew how little it was worth,
the Richmond financiers tried an ex
pedient which has beenresorted to in the
case of Colonial "Continental currency,"
the French assignats, and the Austrian
legal-tenders, and always with the same
result It is on the principaLof a hair
of the dog that bit the patient A new
batch of notes were printed, in which
the old ones were to be redeemed at two-
thirds of their face-value. But of course
the new and old ran a race in deprecia
tion, and were soon equally valueless.
Then the presses were set to work
again. The laws providing-for the issue
of "money" were so many and so com
plicated that there was practically no
limit to the amount set afloat. It is
said that the Secretary of the Treasury
did not know the figures. It became
impossible to sign the graybacks fast
enough in the Department, and several
thousand young women were employed,
who took sheets of notes to their homes,
signed them with whatever name was
needed and brought the stuff back.
Prices went soaring heavenward as the
purchasing power of the currency drop
ped in the other direction. Mr. George
dry Eggleston tells, in "A Rebel's Rec
ollections," of a friend of his who said,
"Before the war, I wont to the market
with the money in my pocket, and
brought back my purchase in a basket;
now I tike my money in the basket, and
bring the things home in my pocket"
The jest was literally true. Tho post
office clerks at Richmond resigned be
cause they could not livcon their salaries
of$50,000ayear in Confederate green
backs. A barrel of flour brought $1,000.
Mr. Eggleston saw a pair of boots sold
for $500. The price asked was 200, but
change could not be made, and the
purchaser handed over a $500 bill, say
ing: "Keep the change ; I never lot a
little matter of $300 stand in the way of
a trade." Buying in the markets to sell
again was forbidden under heavy penal
ties, in order to keep prices as low as
possible. Finally, gold rose to 12,400
per cent premium. The "money" be
came absolutely valueless. It was no
longer a standard. Nothing could be
measured with it The community fell
back to the barbarism o barter. A
physician was paid by his planter
patients in corn. Students paid their
tuition-fees in provisions. Tho very
taxes were collected in corn, tobacco,
egg, chickens, and sweet potatoes.
Confederate currency was issued by a
community which numbered between
ten and twelve million people, controll
ing a rich area of 750,000 square miles.
had practial monopoly of tho products of
one of the few great staples, cotton,
and had boundless "faith" in "resources,"
itself and its success. Everything which
the shin-plaster enthusiasts of to-day
wish to use as the basis of currency
"resources" of the country and general
"faith" abounded at the South. But
the one essential thing, provision for its
redemption in gold or its equivalent,
was wanting. All else was of no avail.
Before the Confederacy collapsed, its
currency was worthless. It made'money'
so "easy" to get, that nobody wanted to
keep it, for it was easier every day, and
would therefore, buy less to-morrow. The
grayback is a rightful warning to the
greenback-inflation schemes now rife in
the North. Chicago Tribune.
