As many of our readers arc interested
In the paeliin'i and shipping of cjrgs we
publish the following instructions ou that
Kiibjoet, which are furnished by Janney
(: Andrews, of Philadelphia :
Kggs generally pay for careful hand
ling. As an article of produce coming
into the handsof all country store-keepers,
the mode of packing for safe carriage is
The best, article for packing is oats
(which arc always hold); the next best
iarki.ig is wheat chad'. Never use saw
ln.t, oats chaff, or buckwheat chaff. The
packing used must be perfectly sweet and
dry. Always procure a substantial bar
icl; the bottom should be lined in wilha
hoop, and all the hoops should be tight,
veil nailed, and clinched before packing.
Commence packing with one ami a half
inches of oats, level on the bottom; the
li.st, layer should contain four and onc
h.ilf dozen, loosely laid in on their sides
(never pack eggs on end); then put in
ono inch of packing, rubbing it. well into
the layer; then smoothly and firmly press
with the hand; tjio layer being level, put
in another four and one-half dozen, loose
ly laid in as before ; prepare another inch
of packing, rubbed in firmly, and evenly
pressed with the hand ; then successively,
in the same manner, place in two layers
of five dozen each, then four layers of
five and one-half dozen each, and ihe re
maining layers six or seven , five
sl.::on each, which will fill within 51 inches
of the top; making whole count, seventy
one or seventy-six dozen. In the remain
ing space use hay or straw, tightly pressed
down by the head, which should be
fastened in by a cross-piece, nailing one
end, thou spring in the other end with
the knee, and nail securely. Gently jolt
ing three or four times while packing is
not amiss, but no layer should touch the
sides of the barrel.
Mark the head with number of dozen,
the owner's initials, or a number, and the
consignee's address, and the barrel is
ready for shipment.
ISy At a recent meeting of the West
ern New York Farmers' Club, a corres
pondent from Genesee asked when and
how to cpply leached ashes to crops for
the best results. Mr. (juiuby had used
over ten thousand bushels in the hist three
years, and found them good for all crops
on a sandy or chestnut loam soil. He
would cover his entire farm with them if
he could get them. If put in the hill,
'they started corn early and with vigor ;
had increased his wheat crop over one
hundred per. cent, by applying two or
three hundred bushels per acre. They
also benefited grass, and were one of the
best fertilizers for clover. -On some of
his land, which had been hard run be
fore begot it, if was difficult to make
clover catch, but leached ashes made it
grow splendidly. A new seeded Cold was
only partly ashed last year, and where the
dressing was omitted the clover was poor;
on the rest, very luxuriant. IIo ashed
part of a rye field, and got a great in
orcaso of gram and a good clover catch ;
though heavy clay soil was not benefited
as much by ashes as lighter loam soils of
tsaud. Mr. Collins had put leached ashes
an inch deep on four acres of heavy clay
land, and got a fine crop of corn. The
lit iff clay became more friable, and plow
ed up.iuellow, instead of in lumps, in a
Edwin L. Gage, of Dcltayter, N.
Y.. gives the following remedy for eye
lashes of sheep growing in their eyes :
" Take a long darning needle, threaded
with cotton wrapping yarn run the nee
dle through the forctop close to the skin
just forward of the eyes, and then back
just back of the eyes, inclosing a strip of
wool about an inch in width ; take off the
oicedlo, tie the two ends of the yarn in a
i-inglc knot, draw it up till the upper lids,
.are raised sufficiently to clear the eyes of
the hair, fasten with another knot, and
tho work is done.
i&if A correspondent of tho Maine.
Farmer has a new use for cats. He says:
" My way to cure a sulky steer that lies
down when you firt yoke him, is to take
n -cat and let her put her paws ou the end
of tho steer's nose, and, if necessary, hold
her rather hard. My word for it, he will
bo on his legs quick."
.J- Chicken cholera has made its
jcaranee in York county.
This is of more importance than wagon
owners imagine. Tho following, from an
unknown Mwrce, says the Coachmakcr's
Magazine, is valuable information on the
subject, which we trust will be duly heed
Few people are aware that they do
wagons and carriages more injury by
greasing too plentifully than any other
way. A well made wheel will endure
constant wear from ten to twenty-five
years, if care is taken to use the right
kind and proper amount of grease; but if
this matter is not attended to, they will
be used up in five or six years. Lard
should never be used on a Wagon, for
it will penetrate tho hub, and work its
way out around the tenons of the spokes,
and spoil the wheel.
Tallow is the best lubricator for wood
en axle-trees, and castor oil for iron.
Just grease enough should be applied to
the spindle of u wagon to give it a light
coating; this is better than more, for the
surplus put on will work out at the ends
and be forced by the shoulder bands and
nutwashor into the hub around the out
side of the boxes. To oil an iron axle
tree, lirst wipe the spindle clean with a
cloth wet with spirits of turpentine, and
then apply a few drops of castor oil near
the shoulder and end. One teaspoonful
is sufficient for the whole.
V'e would add that fin- journals on
which there is a heavy pressure it is a
good plan to mix with the oil sonic lamp
black or common soot. Powdered plum
bago or black lead is also employed for
the same purpesa.
I'cd Dye for Wool.
A subscriber who says she has tried it,
furnishes us the following recipe :
A good bright red color may be ob
tained on wool by the use of lac dye in
the following way: In the first place, a
tolerably stiff paste is int.de of tho laedye
and sulphuric acid, and this is allowed to
stand for a day. For dying ten pounds
of wool, one pound of tartar, two-thirds
of a pound of'salts of tin, and three
quarters of a pound of the paste just
mentioned, are required, i lie wool must
be boiled in the bath for thrce-quartersof
an hour, after which, as a matter of
course, it must be carefully rinsed aud

A Cure for Diptheria!
All Interested, please read the following extract
from a letter from Jlrs. j:'!en '. iI.i-.n, v. ifeof
Iiev. Francis Muson, Tounghoo. llinnali:
. . . ?,Iy son was taken violently sick w ilh dip
theria. cold chills, burning fever, and sore throat.
I counted, one moniiii!-'. ten little veseiclei in his
throat, very white, and his tongue toward th
root, looked like a watermelon full of seeds; the re
mainder coated astliickasa knife-blade. So many
children have died around hire, I was afraid to
call a physician, and thought I would try your Tain
Killer for a garble wilh small doses inwardly. I
did sound found the sarnie. Invariably cut oil tho
vescitles,and he raised them up often covered with
blond. He was taken on Sunday: on Wednesday
his throat wasclearand hisl inmie rapidly clearini;
oil'. I also used it as a liniment witli castor oil and
hartshorn, for his neck. It seemed tome a won
derful cure, and I can but wish it could bo known
to the many poor mothers in our land who are los
ing so many poor children by tills dreadful disease.
J have found your I'aln Killer one of the most
vaulable medicines ever used in lp.innah. Once I
was stung by a very largf black scorpion : the pain
was indescribable. 1 immediately applied thd'aiu
Ivlllei-.tfor 1 never travel without It,) again and
again, and in half an hour my font was well.
Dr. Walton writes from Coshocton " Your Tain
Killer cures this now disease Ulplhvrl".. or Sore
T'iro(tt that is so alarmingly prevalent here; and
it has not been known to fail in any instance when
used In lime. Tliis fact you should make know n to
the world." (It is used in this disease as a gargle
and lotion as well as a tonic and a stimulant.
In J lalifax where this disease prevailed for so
many months in its most malignant form, the use
or J'erri 7Ji(cm" Pain Kil''.r'' was invariably at
tended with the most favorable results, when it w as
used ere the dlsev.se had made too much progress
to preclude the use of so powerful a stimulant.
