A correspondent of the Germantown
Telegraph asks the following question
ibout quinces, which may with propriety
be asked of many farmers in this county :
" Why do we not grow more of this
beautiful and delicious fruit, is a ques
tion often asked by horticulturists, but to
my mind has not been answered.
This fruit is always in large demand
and bears transportation well, while
choice 'quinces of the best varieties often
bring fabulous prices. In the city of
Poughkeepsie, New York, I have
seen farmors sell quinces for five dollars
per bunded by the wagon load, while for
miles around there could scarcely be a
better soil for the production of this
fruit ; for while wealth and time and sci
ence have advanced the cultivation and
perfection of the other fruits to an aston
ishing degree, by some fatality this beau
tiful and favorite fruit has been a sub
ject of neglect, and the culture it has re
ceived, owing to the want of a more per
fect knowledge of the habits of the tree,
its adaptabitity to different soils, modes
of pruning, &c., has not been of the kind
best suited to its wants. The quince de
lights in a moist soil, lut it has generally
"been consigned to some cold undraiued
spot to take its chance with sedge and
break, and slow and mossy growth with
knotty and inferior fruit is the inevitable
JE" It has been stated that about a
hundred aud thirty years since, a Scotch
jnaa invented the cast iron mould board,
which was a marked improvement on the
wooden one, and after this the plow hold
rs seem to have remained content for
half a century, when an English invent
or gave a new start to their ideas of pro
gress by bringing out a plow with a cast
iron share. Sixty years after this an
American produced a plow having a cast
iron land slido and mould board, and a
wrought iron or steel share.
JUST" When red clover is plowed under
to renovate the soil, and when the crop
is good, the clover roots and stubble, with
barn-yard manure will furnish all the
vegetable matter needed in the soil, while
in feeding clover hay, ammonia is passed,
and may be saved in the manure ; so that
on good land, where all is well managed,
and the clover sod plowed up while yet
in full vigor so as to secure the largest
benefit from the large mass of roots, uear
ly the full benefit of the clover crop may
be had, both for feeding and for making
6a5 To beautify the teeth, dissolve
two ounces of borax in three pints of
boiling water, and before it is cold add
one teaspoonful of the spirits of camphor
and bottle for use. A tablcspoonful of
this mixture, mixed with an equal quan
tity of tepid water, and applied daily
with a soft brush, preserves and beauti
fies the teeth, extirpates all tartarous ad
hesion, arrests decay, induces healthy ac
tion of the gums, and makes the teeth
BSf Many persons in preparing pota
toes for cooking, pare oil' a thick slice
from the surface. Professor Blot, in his
lecture on the potato, says the skinning
process is all wrong, as the strength of
the vegetable lies near the surface the
starch growing less abundant as the cen
tre is approximated. The starch near
thesuface contains the nutriment, which
is not more than seven or eight per ceut.,
the balance beiug merely water.

Farmer says, l I saw in your paper that
a correspondent wanted to know what to
do with a horse whoso legs would swell.
Tell him to iced the horse plenty of roots
I mean carrots, potatoes, turnips or
anything that has a relaxing tendency.
Flaxseed boiled, is good. Feed bran also
and keep him well groomed for grain."

Notes at the Farmers' Club.
Effects of Eating Bran.
J. Coleman asked " what probable
effect it would have if people should eat
the phosphate of lhno found in their
wheat, instead of throwing the most of it
away as they now do in the barn ?" Dr.
Smith answered that two or three genera
tions hence the men would be taller and
the women would have b'-lter teeth some
thing worth considering."
Rotation of Crops fn Wisconsin.
Albert Long, of Dartford, Wis., excepted
to the practice of a former correspondent,
who " having sown a piece of grass, docs
not plough the land again in less than
eight years." Mr. Long prefers this system
of rotation namely, meadow, pasture,
corn, barley, wheat. lie believes if this
were adopted by the prairie farmers, it
would be greatly to their benefit, and
would actually enrich their land, lie has
land (lately purchased) which has been
ploughed for twenty-two years in succes
ion without manure or grass-seed, pro
ducing, as near as ho can get at it, eight
teen crops of wheat, two of corn, and
two of oats. Last year it yielded at least
two tons of clover and timothy hay per
acre for the first crop. Now, he conten
ded, if this land is kept in grass two
years in five hereafter, and all the hay
and straw made into manure and faith
fully returned to it, will it not grow
richer ? There can be no question but it
will. Hence I would advise our Western
farmers to try this system of rotation
first, then if they think they can make it
profitable at the rate we arc compelled
to sell beef cattle, to mow their lands
sixteen years in succession, they may do
so. Hearth and Home.

A Cure for Diptheria!
All Interested, please read the following extract
from a letter from Mrs. Ellen B. Mason, wife of
Itcv. Francis Mason, Tounghoo, lllrmah :
. . . My son was taken violently sick with dip
theria. cold chills, burning fever, and sore throat.
I counted, one morning, ten little vescicles in his
throat, very white, and his tongue toward the
root, looked like a watermelon full of seeds ; the re
mainder coated as thick as a knife-blade. So many
children have died around here, I was afraid to
call a physician, and thought 1 would try your Pain
Killer for a gargle with small doses Inwardly. I
did so and found the garglo invariably cut oil tha
vescicles. and he raised them up often covered with
blood. He was taken on Sunday: on AVedncsday
his throat wasclcarand his tongue rapidly clearing
off. I also used it as a liniment with castor oil and
hartshorn, for his neck. It seemed to me a won
derful cure, and I can but wish it could le known
to the many poor mothers in our land who are los
ing so many poor children by this dreadful disease.
I have found your Tain Killer one of the most
vaulablc medicines ever used in Burmali. Once I
was stung by a very large black scorpion ; the pain
was Indescribable. I immediately applied the Tain
Klller,(for I never travel without it,) again and
again, and In halt an hour my foot was well.
Dr. AValton writes from Coshocton " Your Tain
Killer cures this new disease Dlptherla, or Sore
Throat that Is so alarmingly prevalent here; and
It has not been known to fall In any Instance when
used In time. This fact you should make known ta
the world." (It is used in this disease as a gargle
and lotion as well as a tonic and a stimulant.
In Halifax where this disease prevailed for so
many months in its most malignant form, the use
of 1'crry Darts" Pahi Killer" was invariably at
tended with the most favorable results, when it was
used ere the disease had made too much progress
to preclude the use of so powerful a stimulant.
