A correspondent of the Horticulturist
" I had a narrow border not more than
two and a half feet wide, on the edge of a
high fouce. I planted three hills in the
border, and laid some brush such as is
used for pea vines between them and
the fence. As soon us they crept up to
the brush, I pinched off the cuds of the
vine which thickened rapidly around the
roots, and in every direction, throwing
out the most vigorous foliage aud profu
sion of flowers. .
I did not allow the cucumbers to grow,
but I watched them, and such ai I wish
ed to reserve for the table I picked as
tsoon as they became of proper size ; and
all the rest were guthered every day for
pickles; pinching off the bud at the end
of each shoot. In this way the hills con
tinued fresh and productive up till they
were touched by frost. Some judgment
can bo formed of the value of this prac
tice when I add thnt more than a barrel
of pickles were made from three hills, be
sides allowing a supply for the table.
When a leaf begun to look rusty or
yellowish, it was removed, aud the cu
cumbers and leaves were cut off with
large sois.sors, so as not to disturb or
wound the vine. There is an advantage
in having them run upon brush instead of
trailing over the ground, because they are
much injured by being trodden on, and
by being kept low .on the bushes they can
be easily and thoroughly examined every
day, which is essential, for if cucumbers
are overlooked, and grow very large, it
stops the yield of that vine."
To Destroy Striped or Cucumber Bugs.
A correspondent writes to the Maryland
" I send you an item, if you think it
worth publishing, which effectually pro
tected my melon, squash, cucumber, and
other vines from that destructive pest,
the ' striped or cucumber bug,' the past
season, with only one application, viz. :
A strong solution of hen house manure
say one peck of the manure to one and a
half gallons water let it stand 2 A hours,
and sprinkle the plants freely with it af
" The above was suggested to me by a
negro woman living on my place, who has
some practical experience in gardening,
and says ahe has used it for years, and has
never known the first application to fail
to drive them off, and they never return."
Mange lu Horses.
All the mangy part of the horse's
body should be rubbed with un equal
mixture ot sott sonp and ointment, ana in
twenty-four hours it should be washed off
with warm water and tho horse carefully
dried and blanketed afterwards. If one
application is not sufficient, a second one
should be made, but eight or ten days
ehould intervene between each applica
When you perceive your horses in
clined to rub their manes and tails feed
them a little oil meal, say from one to two
quarts a day for a week or ten days, and
at the same tunc make good brine, as
warm as you can bear your hand in it.and
wash the scaly substance out of the mane
and tail, and mix about a tablc-spoontul
of lard to a tablespoonful of powder, and
rub it in well about thcrooto ot the inane
Tho Sex of an Egg.
Fersons frequently wish to have their
Lens hatch only female lowls, and tliere
foro the following rule will be of value :
" To ascertain tho sex of an egg, hold
it in the hand between the eye and a
light: if the vivifying spec bo located
exactly on the top of the egg it contains
a male bird, but if on one side it will
hatch a female. This knowledge is valu
kble to those people who invariably raise
a tour-linn crop ot roosters.
BS?" A Few Hints. Iron rust is re
moved -by salt mixed with lemon juice.
Mildew, by dropping in sour buttermilk
and laying in the sua. Ink stains may
be sometimes taken out by smearing with
hot tallow, left on when tlie stained article
goes to the wash. Freezing will take out
old fruit stains, and acalding with boiling
water will remove those that have never
lieeu through tho wash.
Moths iu Carpets.
An experienced housekeeper says :
" Camphor will not stop the ravages of
moths after they have commenced eating.
Then they pay no regard to the presence
of camphor, cedar and tobacco; in fact, I
rather think they enjoy the latter, it any
thing, more than humanity can. Nor
will the dreaded and inconvenient taking
up and beating always insure success, fi r
I tried it laithlully, and while nailing it
down found several of the worms " alive
and kicking,'' that had remained under
the pile unharmed. I conquered them
wholly in this way : I took a coarse crash
towel and wrung it in clean water, and
spread is smoothly on tho carpet, then
ironed dry with a good hot iron, repeats
ing the operation on all suspected places,
and those least used. It does not injure
the pile or color of the carpet in tho least,
as it is not necessary to press, heat and
steam being the agent ; and they do the
work effectually on worms and eggs, lhen
camphor will doubtless prevent future
depredations of tho miller."
To Color Black.
One ounce extract of logwood, one
ounce copperas, one-half ounce verdigris;
tie the verdijrris in a cloth and bi.il.
Dissolve tho copperas in an iron kettle,
and soak tho goods at a scalding heat
three-quarters ot an hour, stirring occa
sionally. Dissolve the logwood, and add
the water in which the vera is; is is boiled.
Dip the goods three-quarters of an hour,
stirring frequently. This makes a beau
tiful black. Always use water sufficient
to cover the goods, aud stir easily.

II. T. Helmbolti, Druggifct :
Peak Sin I have been a sufferer, for upward
of twenty years, with gravel, bladder, and kid
ney affections, during which time I have used
various medicinal preparations, and been under
the treattneut of the most cmiuctit Physicians,
experiencing but little relief.
Having seen your prepatTtions extensively
ndveitised, 1 consu'ted with my family physi
cian in regard to using your Extract Bucliu.
I did this because I had used all kinds of ad
vertised remedies, and hud found them woith
lcss, and, some quite injurious ; in fact, I de
spaired of ever gitting well, and determined to
use no remedies hereafter unless I knew of the
ingredients. It was this that prom ted me to
use your remedy. As you advertised that it
was composed of huchu, eubebs, and juniper
berries, it occurred to me nnd my physician as
an excellent coitibltii tion, and, w ith his advice,
after an examiiu tion of the article, nnd con
sulting ngain with the druggist, I concluded to
try it. I commenced its use about eight months
go, at which time I was confined to my room.
From the fitt bett'.e I was astonished and grat
ified at the beneficial cll'cct, nnd after using it
three weeks, w as able to walk out. I felt much
like writing you a full t tateinei.t of my caso at
the time, bill thought my improvement might
only be temponin, mid there foro concluded to
defer and see if it would clIW t a perfect cure,
knowing then it would be of more value to you,
und more satisfactory to me.
I am now able to report that a cure is effect
ed after using the remedy for five months.
I have n( t used any now for three mouths,
and feel as well in all respects as I ever did.
Your Bucliu being devoid of any unpleasant
taste, and odor, a nice tonic and invigorator of
the system, I do not mean to be without it
whenever occasion may require its use in such
