Preparation of Poultry.
Considerable care should bo taken in
the preparation of poultry, ns on this de
pends whether the labor expended is
profitable or unprofitable.
Poultry intended ibr sale in the Phila
delphia market should be fat and should
be dry picked. The birds should not be
fed the day before killing, in order that
the crop may be empty ; a full crop dis
figures the bird and injures the sale.
Never remove the intestines, feet or heads;
the two latter should be free from nil dirt
and blood. Fold up the wings and feet
neatly, and confine them with strings,
This gives the birds a fatter and neater
appearance. Pack smoothly in boxes or
barrels with perfectly clean and dry straw,
to dry-pick a fowl, all that is necessary is
to kill one bird at a time, and immediately
pick while the animal bent is in the body,
then kill another, and so on. The feath
ers are as easily removed by this mode as
by scalding. The advantage over the
scalding processare manifold : the poultry
is more cyeable, keeps longer, sells faster
and for a better price, generally two to
five cents a pound more, nnd can be dis
posed of, even upon a glutted condition
of the market, and when scalded poultry
cannot be sold even at a great sacrifice;
during such glut much of the latter sours
and becomes a total loss, Dry-picked
poultry remains a long time without sweat
ing ; scalded poultry begins the sweating
process as Boon as packed. Never kill
poor, diseased, or under-fed birds. If ac
cidentally such ore killed, it would be
more economical to throw them away than
risk the spoiling of a good lot, by putting
ucli birds in it.
Cora and Hogs.
From carefully conducted experiments
by different persons it has been ascertained
that one bushel of corn will make a little
over 10 J pounds of pork gross. Taking
these results as a basis, the following de
ductions are made which all our farmers
would do well to lay by for reference.
When corn costs 33 cents per bushel,
pork costs 4 ccuts a pound.
When corn costs 60 cents per bushel,
pork costs 5 cents a pound.
The following statement shows what
the farmer realizes on his corn when in
the shape of pork. . ,
When pork sells for four cents per
pound, it brings SJ3 cents per bushel for
When it soils for five cents per pound
it brings 50 cents per bushel for corn.
When it sells for eight cents per pound
the corn is bringing about 81 cents per
When it sells for 12 cents per pound
it is bringing nearly $1,25 per bushel for
The Host Fences.
A writer, (of liichruond, Indiaua,) in
the Cincinnati GazHe, claims, and
justly, that the best fence for a dry, or
gravelly soil is irood white-oak posts and
board rails. He says the posts will last
twenty years on such a soil, at the end of
which timo the boards can be attached
to new posts and will last twenty years
longer. He is opposed to all preparation
of the. material except giving the fence a
The American Stork Journal says that
a man who neglects the regular grooming
or his horses, is an enemy both to himself
and the beasts to them because ho with
holds labor which is their due; and to
himself because he depreciates the value
of his own property. The curry comb
should bo brought into requisition daily,
nor should the clipping shears bo omitted.
Peach Trees. ,
The llorticvlturut says: " Whenever
the peach does not succeed well planted
upon its roots, because of the soil being
too stiff, clayey, or wet, it will bo found
that if the peach bo budded on the plum,
it will thrive well and give good crops of
fruit, and at the sumo time givo to the
tree more hardihood to-bear extreme
ohanges of temperature.

Prayer is the key to heaven. By it
Elijah shut up the skies so that there
was neither rain or dew in the land for a
long space of time. By prayer Jacob
placed a ladder whose foot was on the
earth and its top in the heaven, upon
which the angels of God ascended and
descended. By prayer Daniel shut the
lion's mouths so that they would not hurt
him when he was cast into their den.
By prayer Sampson shook the Philis
tines temple and destroyed the idolaters
it contained. By prayer Peter was deliv
ered from prison, l'or the church interced
ed with God for him and the angel of the
Lord was sent to rescue him from his
perilous situation. "Pray therefore, with
Difficulties, hardships, and trials, are

of purpose to walk with God in keeping
his commandments ; also (3) to prepare
us for good in the end..
There is as much connection between
the words and the thoughts as there is be
tween the the thoughts and actions.
The latter is not only the expression of
the former ; but they have a power to
react upon the soul, and leave the stain
of corruption there. A young man who
allows himself to use one vulgar or pro
fane word, has not only shown that there
is a foul spot upon his mind, but by the
utterance of that word he extends that
spot, and inflames it, till, by indulgence,
it will pollute the whole sdul.
Be direful of your words as of your
thoughts. If you can control the tongue,
that no bad words are pronounced by it,
yon will soon bo able to control the mind,
and save that from corruption. You ex
tinguish the fire by smothering it, or pre
vent bad thoughts bursting into language.
Never utter a word anywhere which you
would be ashamed to speak in the pres
ence of ladies or tho most religious man.
Try this practice a little while, and you
will soon have command of yourself.
A (fcldcn Thought.
All things are engaged in writing their
own history. The plant and tho pebble
go attended by their own shadows. The
rock leaves its scratches on the mountain
side, tho river its bed in the soil ; the
animal leaves its bones in the stratum,
tho fern and the leaf their modest epitaph
in the coal. Tho falling drop makes its
sepulchre in the sand or stone; not a
footstep in tho snow or along tho ground,
but prints in characters more or less last
ing, a map of its march ; every act of
mail inscribes its memories on its fellows
and on his own face. Tho air is full of
sound, the sky ot tokens; , tho ground is
all a memoranda, signatures, and every
object is covered over with hints which
gpeak to the intelligent. . . .
JBfiy Religious error is always as zealous,
self-sacrificing and denying as religious
truth. Tho zeal of Paul was as earnest,
vehement and sincere when he was a per
secutor as when an apostle. Tho Hindoo
wife, giving her body to be burned with
the body of her husband, and the Mor

man already counting his concubines by
