Houic-madc Horse Power.
The cheapest and best way to make a
-horse-power for dairy and other light
use is to put a light drum on a center
post, high enough to have the belt clear
the horse's head. Attach a sweep ten or
twelve feet long to the center post, so
that the track in which the horse walks
will be from twenty to twenty-four feet
in diameter if possible. Let the track
be soft ground. The whole arrangement
may be made of white pine, except the
sweep, which should be hard wood. Let
the drum be about ten feet in diameter
and six inches face. Use a two-inch
rubber belt. Make a small pulley from
four inches to a foot in diameter, accord
ing as you want fast or slow motion. If
you want the motion still faster, gear up
with a second belt and set of pulleys.
The direction of the motion may be
changed by quarter twist in the second
belt, or bypassing the first belt over
idler pulleys. This arrangement will
be almost noiseless, while the clatter
and jar of a circular platform would
be enough to drive a sensitive or
nervous person almost crazy. Besides,
it is much easier and safer to teach a
horse to follow a circular path than to
keep his balance on a revolving plat
Ripening of Frnlt.
Prof. Turner says : "Previous to ma
turity, fruits are formed of compact cel
lular tissue, containing the elements of
woody fiber, and filled with a liquid con
taining very little sugar, a gummy sub
stance and a large quantity of free acid.
During maturation a part of the acid dis
appears by the action of the oxygen of
the air, and the cellulosetissue dimin
ishes and the proportion of sugar in
creases, insomuch that instead of hard,
woody acid fruits, if the maturation has
been complete, fruits yield a sweet, sir
According to Prof. Mulder, "fleshy
fruits and several kinds of berries ac
quire while ripening a much greater pro
portion of sugar than they contained
before maturity, although full grown.
Kipe fruits have not an acid taste be
cause they contain a large quantity of a
basis by which they are saturated, and
not because they are disguisedby sugar. "
Fremy says : "At the moment of
ripening, the acids of fruits are par
tially saturated, and form salts of lime
How to Pill Empty Comb.
A correspondent having asked Mrs.
Tupper the following question : " How
we can best fill up a number of hires of
empty combs with bees? We have ten
living colonies healthy, though weak, and
twenty-nine hives full of comb," she re
plies, through the Iowa Homestead, as
" The best way to fill up your comb
is to watch the bees, now that warm
.wgathprlmH fomn, anil nvpry few dnja
put one empty comb between two that
the queen has filled with brood. In this
way you will soon have any hive full of
brood if honey is plenty; if not, you
must feed quite liberally with sugar
sirup. There will be no trouble in
getting your hives all full of bees again
if you manage in this way. If the season
is good, it may be necessary for you to
extract honey frequently from the comb
to give the queens room."
The Nature ofGnano.
It is a generally received opinion that
the deposits of guano are exclusively the
excrements of birds. Dr. Habel has in
vestigated this matter microscopically
and chemically, and has found that after
treating the substance with an acid, the
insoluble residue is composed of fossil
sponges and other marine animals and
plants precisely similar in constitution
to such as still exist in those seas. The
fact, too, that the anchors of ships in the
neighborhood of the guano islands
often bring up guano from the bottom
of the ocean, is quite in opposition to
the prevalent belief. Dr. Habel there
fore considers that the deposits of guano
must be the result of the accumulation
of fossil plants and animals whoso or
ganic matter has been transformed into
nitrogenous nubstance, the mineral por
tion remaining intact.
Cliarconl for Poultry.
The benefit which fowls derive from
eating charcoal is, I believe, acknowl
edged. The method of putting it before
them is, however, not well understood.
Pounded charcoal is not in the shape in
which fowls usually find their food, and
consequently is not very enticing to
-4hem. m- '
I have found that corn burned on the
cob, and the refuse which consists al
most entire lj of the grains reduced to
charcoal, and still retaining their per
fect shape 'placed before them, is greed
ily eaten by them, with a marked im
provement in their health, as is shown
by the brighter color of their combs,
and their sooner producing a greater
average of ejgs to the flock than before.
A correspondent gives his method of
converting a mower into a feed-cutter ..
follows : Place the machine standing
upright on the back end, and brace it
firmly. Then brace up the bar so that
it will be steady, and fit a board on the
top of the fingers of the guard-bar, so
that the hay cannot get over the bar.
Then make a table to feed on. Throw the
machine into the gear, put the hay on
tho table and turn the wheel. The hay
is fed against the under side of the bar.
With a horse power and belt to tho
wheel, this makes a first-rate power

A CHECKER-BOARD CRANIUM.
, Here is something remarkable. A
woman in New Haven was recently be
reft of her scalp by the idiosyncracies
of a shaft and belt. The doctors saw
that to remedy the evil they would have
to recourse to transplanting, and so
they actually succeeded in getting a
sufficient number of pieces from other
people's heads to give this unfortunate
woman a new scalp. We hope those
New Haven doctors used more discre
tion than did he who attended a man
named Finlay, who met with a similar
accident in Oriskany, N. Y., some thir
teen years ago. Bits of scalp from
seventeen different persons were secured
by this doctor and adroitly stitched to
the head of Mr. Finlay. When it was
done, people came miles to see Finlay's
head, and Finlay himself, with his
checker-board cranium, was the happi
est man in Oriskany. But when the
capaliary glands got in working order,
and the hair commenced to grow, the
top of that man's head presented the
most extraordinary spectacle on record.
The doctor, who was about half the
time in liquor, had consulted expedi
ency rather than judgment, and secured
that new scalp without any reference
to future developments. We never saw
anythiug like it. Here was a tuft of
yellow hair, and next to it a bit of
black, and then a flame of red, and a
little like silk, and more like tow, with
brown hair and gray hair, and sandy
hair, and cream colored hair, scattered
over his entire skull. And what a mad
man that Finlay was, and nobody could
blame him. He would stand up against
the barn for an hour at a time and sob
and swear. It was very fortunate that
the doctor was dead. Ho went off two
weeks before with blue aguo, which is a
mild sort of disease. Finlay kept his
hair cut short, but that didn't make
any difference. Then he tried dyes, but
they only made matters worse. Then
he got a wig, and this covered up the de
formity ; but sometimes at church he
would get asleep, and the wig would
fall off, and make the children cry.
Once at the county fair he fell asleep
and the wig dropped off, and the com
mittee on domestic goods, when they
came around, stood in front of Finlay's
head for some five minutes in wrapped
delight. They then immediately decided
that it was the most ingenious piece of
patch-work in the list, and never discov
ered the mistake until they attempted
to pin the premium card to it. At that
Finlay awoke, and knocked down the
chairman of the committee and chased
the others out of the building. We
hope those New Haven doctors have
been more particular, as it is not a sub
ject to trifle with. Danbury News.
One of the most ingenious and daring
thefts on record was perpetrateda-sLort
time since at the village of Brierly Hill,
England. A lad entered the store of a
grocer of the place and bought a roll of
bread, which he asked the man to stuff
down the back of his jacket, as his com
panion outside would take it away from
him if he saw it. The grocer complied
with the apparently innocent request,
and having had his loaf placed in its
original hiding place the boy left.
Hardly had he quitted the store when
another lad rushing in, exclaimed : "Do
you know what that chap has done ? he
has prigged your watch ! " The grocer
looked in horror, and saw his watch
chain dangling and his watch gone.
" There he goes ! " said his informant,
pointing to a figure seen going down the
street ; and the storekeeper immediately
rushed out in pursuit, leaving the store
unguarded. When he reached the cor
ner the supposed thief had vanished,
and returning to his store he found that
during his absence the informer had
emptied the till and gone off with the
money. The two thieves have so far
JPENNSl'L VANIA ENTERPRISE.
The project of laying down a pipe be
tween the petroleum region in Western
Pennsylvania and some seaport city,
whereby crude oil may be sent to an
ocean market cheaper than by railroad,
has been revived. Just now Pennsyl
vania seems to be ahead of the world in
the matter of starting enterprises, of
which piping oil to New York or Phila
delphia is one. The Trans-Atlantic bal
loon voyage originated there, as did the
scheme to render the Ohio river naviga
ble by pumping a supply of water from
Jjflka Erie. Some time since a Pennsyl
vania man suggested that salt could be
male much cheaper by bringing brine
from Syracuse to the coal beds than by
carrying the coal to the brine wells in
cars ; bnt New York was reluctant to
part with her salt works and the rev
enues derived from them. Now an
other Pennsylvanian proposes to supply
all the cities in the Middle and Western
States with gas derived from gas wells,
by means of pipes leading'from Erie
and other places where" gas fssues from

MAN AND WIFE.
Among the subjects to be discussed at
the coming "Congress of American
Women" is the propriety of " an equal
division of salaries between husband
and wife." A contemporary suggests
that this generous proposition must, of
course, refer exclusively to a salary
earned by the wife, inasmuch as the
husband's income is already by law, lia
ble for his wife's debts as well as for
her daily maintenance, being thus vir
tually altogether at her disposal, whilst
her own money is legally sacred from
his touch, or from that of her credi
tors. JAPANESE JUSTICE.

THE SICKNESS AND BE A TH OF CAFT.
A New York Herald correspondent
interviewed Dr. Bissell, the surgeon of
the Hall Arctic exploring expedition,
on the arrival of the Buddington party
at Dundee, Scotland. In relation to
the sickness and death of the chief of
the expedition, Dr. Bissell said :
" Since arriving here we find by Amer
ican papers that several very silly and
absurd rumors of a mischievous ten
dency have been abroad. It is quite
possible that the Government at Wash
ington prefers that we reserve what we
have to say for graver discussion, but I
must emphatically contradict the state
ment that Capt. Hall died other than a
natural death. He died of apoplexy.
He appeared to be in perfect health
when entering upon the voyage. I no
ticed nothing unusual in his health up
to the period of his illness. The rumor
that he was poisoned is too absurd to be
seriously entertained. The rumor may
have been founded on the hallucination
of the raving patient."
The Herald correspondent adds :
Schumann, the engineer, says that Hall
was in continual apprehension of being
shot, but was not aware that any one
member of the crew more than another
excited his suspicions. Another phase
of his mania was a determination not to
eat or drink anything unless it was first
tasted by some person. The tasting
was mainly done by Hannah, the Es
quimaux woman. When he rallied, and
for a while recovered his wonted intel
lect, he would say to Capt. Buddington,
"If I die, you must still go on the
North Pole." He would say, "My
last wish is that you strive to get to the
North Pole. Don't let my death bo a
hiudrance to the accomplishment of
this great undertaking."
STEPHEN GIRARD' S MEMORY.
Stephen Girard," says a writer in a
Philadelphia paper, " had a remarkable
memory, seldom forgetting anything to
which his attention had once been
called. As an instance, when, in 1793,
his ship Voltaire was built, laborers
were scarce, on account of a fever
raging at the time, and Girard person
ally assisted his favorite carpenter,
' Jimmy Humphries,' in driving in the
copper bolts which held the breast-hook
fastening in the bow. In 1812, during
the war, the Voltaire required repairing,
and it was overhauled at Kensington.
It was necessary to remove the copper
bolts which held the fastening, in order
to replace some wood work, and it be
came necessary to know whether the
bolts had been riveted from the inner
or outer side. The same carpenter,
Humphries, was assisting in tho repair
ing of the vessel, but was unable to find
the bolt heads. Girard, who was stand-
I ing near, smiled quietly, noticing which,
Humphries asked, rather jokingly,
'Perhaps you know something about
them, sir ?' The old man laughed, and
said: ' Why, Jimmy, don't you remem
ber that hot afternoon in '93, when you
and I put in those bolts ? The star
board ones are riveted from the outside,
and the larboard from the inside.
Through all the whirling memories of
that wonderful head, the old man's
mind had gone back to the simple in
cident of nineteen years before, with
DRUG STORES SCARCE IN VIENNA.
An honr's walk this morning through
the most populous parts of Vienna, in
search of aSeidlitz powder, was a fail
ure, as far as the object of the search
was concerned. We could not find an
apothecary shop in all this long walk
and diligent search. In the same space
we could have found fifty in Balti
more, or in any other American city.
Being in pursuit of knowledge, we made
inquiry as to the cause of this scarcity,
desiring to know whether the sages of
Vienna had discovered that Shakespeare
was right when he consigned " physic
to the dogs." The physicians of whom
we inquired assured us that, although
the people did not physic themselves
much in Vienna, an average amount of
medicine was consumed. The scarcity
of apothecaries grew out of tho fact that
the law was very strict as to the quali
fications of all aspirants, and that they
must obtain a certificate from an exam
ining board, all of whom are apothe
caries and interested in restricting the
number. Thus it is that the business
is kept in certain families, and that very
few except such of their children as take
a fancy to the 'business are inducted to
its mysteries. The difficulty that a
stranger experienced in finding them
was partly owing to the fact that they
had no competition in their several
neighborhoods, made very little display,
and very often had their establishments
in back streets or courts, where con
venience or cheap rent induced the
location. They charge high prices, and
are generally quite wealthy. Vienna

Smndgkins came home very late from
the club, where they had been entertain
ing celebrated guests. On the follow
ing morning Mrs. S. said to him
" Do you really think, Augustus, that
a man and his wife are truly one, as you
often say they are meant to be ?"
" They are one, my dear ; or, at least,
they should be ?"
" And are we one, Augustus?"
" Yes, my dear, I think I may say that
you and I are one."
" Then, my dear Augustus," said the
pretty wife, looking meekly up into his
face, and resting her hands upon his
shoulder, "I wish to express to you my
deep regret, and ask your forgiveness for
my imprudence last night. Pardon me
this once, and I promise you that I will
never get drunk again !"
Smndgkins says the shot was effec
tual. He doesn't believe his wife will
ever have occasion to fire another
The newspapers have been publish
ing glowing accounts of what is de
scribed as a daring feat by one Prof.
Balleni, at Niagara Falls. A St. Cath
erines (Canada) paper informs us that,
after walking across the rope, he re
turned to the middle of it and jumped
then into the river, 150 feet below. The
jumping consists in letting himself
down by a rubber rope, having good
stretching capacity, until witliin some
8 or 10 feet of the water, into which
he then quietly drops, to be picked up
by a boat stationed for the purpose.
Not half so daring a feat as crossing the

NEW YORK, 1873-4. WEEKLY, SEMI-WEEKLY, AND DAILY.
THE WEEKLY SUN is too widely known to require any extended recommenda
tion; but the reasons which have already given it fifty thousand subscribers, and
which will, we hope, give it many thousands more, are briefly as follows:
It is a first-rate newspaper. All the newa of the day will be found in it, conj
densed when unimportant, at full length when of moment, and always presented in
a clear, intelligible, and interesting manner.
It is a first-rate family paper, full of entertaining and instructive read ing of every
kind, but containing nothing that can offend the most delicate and scrupulous taste.
It is a first-rate story paper. The best tales and romances of current literature
are carefully selected and legibly printed in its pages.
It is a first-rate agricultural paper. Tho moat fresh, and instructive articles on
agricultural topics regularly appear in this department.
It is an independent political paper, Belonging io no party, ana wearing no cot
lar. It fisrhta for principle, and for the election of the best men to office. It etf
pecially devotes its energies to the exposure of the great corruptions that now
weaken and disgrace our country, and threaten to undermine republican.institutious
altogether. It has no fear of knaves, and asks no favors from their supporters.
It reports the fashions for thj ladies, and the markets for the men, especially the
cattle markets, to which it pays particular attention.
Finally, it is the cheapest paper published. One dollar a year will secure it for
any subscriber. It is not necessary to get up a club in order to havo THE "WEEKLY
SUX at this rate. Any one who sends a single dollar will get the paper for a year.
