FAEM AND HOUSEHOLD ITEMS
ITe mfe communications from allpenmnxvihoare
interested tit matters properly belonging to this
Mr. 0. S. Willy cives in The Horticul
turist the following advice to keep the
American Golden llussct apple, and it
will of course answer for any other. It
is still timely information for this
season : " Of first importance to every
iuiiuly and orcliaruusts is a, good later
kcepiiic; apple. A cellar well stored with
them, in prime condition, ia a miue of
wealth, and a source of real pleasure
which few ever reach. We aUvays knew
the American Golden llussct to bo just
this treasure, out never iully realized it
as I have the present summer. Up to
July 1st, they were in our market, as firm,
crisp and tender, ''sound to tho core," as
the Autumn before whetr gathered. It
was a good feast to look upon, but one
seldom presented ; fur as I know a large
majority uso up their best late-keepers
long before they are in their prime.
The Goldcu lkiisset is really not fit to eat
(ill May and June. But " how to keep
it, mine all rot." l'ick carefully by hand
each apple as (almost) so many eggs ;
place in a new oak apple barrel j fill lull
to the level, press in the head; leave in
some cool shady place till cold weather;
then placciu the cellar, free from frost
but as cool as possible without .freezing;
and the next June any one so doing, cau
have just as good an apple as ever was
eaten, atid far more pleasant and healih
fulthan the too many early and half ma
tured apples of our fruit stands. Try it,
and there is none better.
Not a little discussion has been in
dulged in by the various agricultural
journals respecting the proper time to
dig, and the proper way to care for po
tatoes after they are dug. Our opinion
with regard to digging is that when the
vines are dead, if this occurs before the
frost kills them, the sooner the potatoes
are dug, tho better. They are then sup
posed to be ripe, and after a potato is
ripe, if allowed to remain in wet earth
itsquality is harmed. If the viucs arc
killed belore the tuber is ripe, wo should
let them remain in the grouud as long as
tho frost will allow with entire safety.
Potatoes ripen if they do not grow, after
the vines are thus destroyed. As to sub
sequent care, the mode adopted by the
best growers is to put them immediately
in a cool, dry cellar, in bins raised about
six inches from the ground, and not over
three or four feet wide with slat bottoms
aud sides, so that the air can circulate
freely through tho mass. In this way,
unless they are poisoned before putting
ih the cellar, potatoes can be kept from
August to April.
Feeding on (lie Itoad.
Many persons in travelling, feed their
horses too much aud too often, contin
ually stuffing them, not allowing them
to rest and digest their food; of course
they suffer from ovcrfuluess, and carry
ing unnecessary weight. Horses should
be well fed in the evening and not stuffed
so full in the morning, and tho traveling
should bo moderate on starting with a
horse having a full stomach. If ahorse
Starts in good condition, ho can go twen
ty or twenty-five miles without baiting.
This is evident wlm we consider the
time necessary to accomplish this space
with tolerable speed. On the contrary,
with a heavy load, and a bad road, a
horse would only go eight or ten miles a
day in that time. Why cannot horses
travel half a day without eating, as well
as to work that time on a farm? If
there bo more exertion on tho road it is
a reason against frequent feeding at that
time. American Veterinarian.
J"55 Dairy cows are only profitable in
some people's estimation during the sum
mer and autumu, aud many farmers ac
tually have not enough milk in winter to
supply their table with frosh butter, whilo
others, to obtain some, give tho two or
cows having the most milk about them,
the filthy dish water and refuse from tho
kitchen, to keep them giving some; the
consequence of which is nauseous butter,
which, like tho stuff they feed the cows
with, is only fit for pigs to eat. Dairy
cows will prove the capacity of any,; man
for tho business of farming, for thcro is
no stock which, bo to say, resents parsi
mony bo quickly, and if any one cannot
make a lot of cows pay well ,neithcr could
he moke a flock of sheep cut wool enough
and make sufficient mutton to answer tho
purpose of keeping. Pcuurious men must
change their dispositions in these days of
progress, lor the price ot dairy produce
is highly remunerative, and so also is the
price of meat, so that thcro is a double
inducement to feed well. Ihe right sort
of cows must be raircil, for lack of jud
mcnt will spoil other good qualities, and
the best kmu oi lo.xi should bo grown, and
this is where winter d.iirymen fail. Food
mangolds arc the cheapest food to feed
with hay and meal, and without roots no

rpiIE Kidneys ire two In nttmbcr, situated at
JL the tipper part of the loin, surrounded by
fat, and consisting of three parts, Tiz : tho-Anterior,
the Interior nnd tho Exterior.
Tho Anterior absorbs. Interior cousists of
tissues or veins, which servo as a deposit for
the nrlno and eouvcy It to tho Exterior. The
Exterior is a conductor also, terminating in a
single tube, nnd called tho Ureter. The Ureters
are connected with the bladder.
Tho bladder Is composed of various cover
ings or tissues, divided Into parts, viz. i the
Upper, the Lower, the Nervous, nnd the Mucous.
The upper expels, the lower retains. Muuy
have a desire to urinate without the nbility;
others urinate without the nbility to retain.
This frequently occurs in children.
To cure these affections, we must bring hit
action the muscles, which are engaged in their
various functions. If they arc neglected, Gravel
or Dropsy may ensue.
The reader must n'so be made aware, that
however slight may be tlic attack, it is sure t
n fleet the bodily health and mental powers, as
oar flesh and blood arc supported from theso
Goct, on Rheumatism. Pain occurring In
the loins are indicative of the above diseases.
They occur in persons disposed to acid stomach
and clmlkv concretions.
The GnAVETj. The gravel ensues from neg
lect or improper treatment of tlic kidneys.
These organs being weak, the water is not ex
pelled from the bladder, but allowed to remain ;
it becomes feverish, aud sediment forms. It is
from this deposit that the stone is formed and
Dnorsy Is a collection of w ater in sonic parts
of the body, nnd bears ditlerent names, accord
ing to the parts affected, viz. : when general
ly diffused over the body, it is called Anasarca j

Treatment. Ileliubold's highly concentra
cd compound Extract Buchu is decidedly one
of tlic beet remedies for diseases ol tho blad
der, kidneys, bladder, dropsical swellings,
rheumatism and gouty ii flections. Under this
head we have arranged Dysuria, or difficulty
nud pain in passing water, Scanty Secretion, or
small and frequent discharges of water ; Stran
gury, or stopping of water ; Hematuria, or
bloody urine; Gout and Rheumatism of the
kidneys, without any change in quantity, but
increase in color, or dark water. It was al
ways highly recommend by the lute Dr. Phys
ick, in these affections.
This medicine increases the power of diges
tion, end excites the absorbents into healthy
exercise by which the watery or calcareous de
positions, and all unnatural enlargements, as
well as pain and inllamatlon, nro reduced, and
it is taken by men, women, and children. Dl

II. T. Helmhold, Druggiht :
Deaii Sir. I have been a sufTcrer, for upward
of twenty years, with gravel, bladder, ond kid
ney affections, during which time I have used
various medicinal preparations, and been under
the treatment of tho most eminent Physicians,
experiencing but little relief.
Having seen your preparations extensively
Advertised, I consulted with my family physi
cian in regard to using your Extract Buchu.
I did this because I hud used all kinds of ad
vertised remedies, and had found them worth
less, and, some quite injurious ; in fact, I de
spaired of ever getting well, nnd determined to
use no remedies hereafter unless I knew of the
ingredients. It was this that prompted me to
use your remedy. As you advertised that it
was composed of buchu, cubebs, nnd juniper
berries, it occurred to me and my physician as
an excellent combination, and, with his advice,
after uu examination of the article, and con
sulting ngaiu with the druggist, I concluded to
try it. I commenced its uso about eight months
ago, at which timo I was con lined to my room.
From the first bottle I was astonished and grat
ified at the beneficial cll'cct, and after using it
tlireo weeks, was able to walk out. I felt much
like writing you a full statement of my case at
tho timo, but thought my improvement might
only be temporary, and therefore concluded to
defer and see if it would cll'cct a perfect cure,
knowing then it would bo of more value to you,
and more satisfactory to nio.
I am now able to report that a cure Is effect
ed ni ter using the remedy for live months.
I have not used any now for three months,
aud feel as well in all respects as I ever did.
Your Buchu being devoid of any unpleasant
taste and odor, a nice tonic nud Invigorntor of
the system, I do not mean to bo without it
whenever occasion may require its uso in such
