A writer in the Rural Nero Yorker
gives advice in regard to feeding pigs as
In case you do not have milk enough
for the sows and pigs both, give it to the
latter by all means. Begin with good
sweet milk gradually getting them used
to that which is a little sour, until they
will drink one about as well as they do
the other, at the same time commence
giving them Indian meal not cob and
corn meal made into a hasty "pudding"
alternately with boiled potatoes, ground
peas, rye, or buckwheat if you have
them, and give them all they will eat
three or four times a day. Add from
time to time a little salt with their food,
they will thrive the better for it.
Cure for Klieumalism.
One of the old and approved physicians
who has a very large practice, has for
several years used with marked success a
remedy for rheumatism, which we will
publish for the reason that the article
used can be obtained now, not alone at the
drug shops but abroad in the fields. It
is the berry of the common scoke-weed,
or scoke-root often called "poke-root."
These berries (now ripening) are put
into spirits gin is the best at the rate
of two ounces to the piut. Of the tinc
ture thus made, a tablespoonful is given
three times a day. We are told that this
simple remedy, persisted in for a week or
more, has effected some remarkablo cures
of this common and distressing com
plaint. Farm Products.
Farm products of all kinks should be
prepared for the market in a neat and
attractive manner. There is no time lost
in picking over beans, sorting apples and
potatoes or putting up butter in a neat
and taking way. The market gardeners
who supply our large cities with vegeta
bles, understand this business of market
ing better than most people. Their let
tuce, beets, turnips, &c, must be washed
and the tomatoes must be clean and care
fully assorted. It don't pay in the long

A horse is never vicious or in
tractable without a direct cause. If a
hor3e is restless or timorous, you may bo
sure these faults arise from defects in his
education. He has been treated either
awkardly or brutally. Commpnco the
. education of the horse at his birth ; ac
custom him to the presence, voice and
sight of man ; speak and act gently ;
caress him; and do not startle him. All
chastisement or cruelty confuses the
animal and makc3 him wild. They are
good men who make good horses.
MS" In Lower California there aro
now 7,000 orange trees iu bearing.
They yield from COO to 1,500 oranges to
the tree, depending on the size of the
tree. About 70 trees'stand on an acre.
The tree commences bearing from eight
years from the seed. For good oranges
tho price is about $20 per 1,000.
California is also cultivating extensively,
grape vines, limes, lemons, citrons, figs,
and walnuts. Lemons, limes, and cit
rons yield crops averaging $1,000 per
B& Soap suds may be used with great
advantage for manuring grapo vines.
Downing says he has seen an Isabella
grapo vine produce 3,000 fine clusters of
well-ripened friuit iu a season, by tho
liberal use of manure, and soapsuds
from tho weekly wash. The effect of
soap suds on other plants is remarkablo.
A cypress vine that had remained sta
tionary for a fortnight, when about two
inches high, immediately began growing,
after being watered with soap suds, and
grew about six inches in five days.

Harks of Difference of Sex In Eggs
It ia stated that the eggs of tho com
mon hen, as well as those of many other
birds, present certain external character
istics, by means of which it is possible to
determine beforehand the sex to be
hatched from them. Thus, the " male"
egg has at his pointed end small folds and
wrinkles, while the " female" egg is en

The Anterior absorbs. Interior consists or
tissues or velus, which serve as a deposit for
the nrlne and convey It to the Exterior. The
Exterior is a conductor also, terminating in a
single tube, and called the Ureter. The Ureters
are connected with the bladder.
The bladder is composed of various cover
ings or tissues, divided Into parts, viz. : the
Upper, the Lower, the Nervous, and tho Mucous.
The upper expels, the lower retains. Many
have a desire to urinate without the ability;
others urinate without the ability to retain.
This frequently occurs in children.
To cure these affections, we must brinir Into
action the muscles, which are engaged in their
various functions. If tlicy arc neglected, Gravel
or uropsy may ensue.

These organs being weak, tho water Is not ex

n. T. Helmbold, Druggifct :
Dear Sib I have been a sufferer, for upward
of twenty years, with gravil, bladder, and kid
ney affections, during which time I have used
various medicinal preparations, and been under
the treatment of the most eminent Physicians,
experiencing but little relief.
lluvlng seen your preparations extensively
advertised, I consulted with my family physi
cian in regard to using your Extract Buchu.
I did this because I bad used all kinds of ad
vertised remedies, and had found them worth
less, and, some quite injurious ; in fact, I de
spaired of evorgcttiug well, and 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, aud juniper
berries, it occurred to mo and my physician ns
nn excellent combination, nnd, with his advice,
after an examination of tho article, and con
sulting again with the druggist, I concluded to
try it. I commenced its use about eight mouths
ago, at which time I was confined to my room.
From the first bottle I was ustonlshed aud grat
ified at the bcueticial effect, and after using it
three weeks, was able to walk out. I felt much
like writing you a full statement of my caso at
tho time, but thought my Improvement might
only be temporary, and therefore concluded to
defer nnd see if It would effec t a perfect cure,
knowing then it would be of inoro value to you,
and more satisfactory to me.
I am now ablo to report that a cure is effect
ed after using tho remedy for flvo months.
I have not used any now for three months,
and feel ns well iu all respects as I ever did.
Your Buchu being devoid of any unpleasant
tasto and odor, a nico tonic and invigorntor of
the system, I do not mean to be without it
whenever occasion may require its uso in such
