A correspondent of the Independent,
travelling in Sweden, was immensely de
lighted with the coffee served on tho
steamboats and hotels. " At Upsala," he
writes, we determined to find out how
they made such perfect coffee as wo had
just drank, and stepped into tho neat
kitchen of tho little hotel ; and this was
the report: Take any kind of coffee-pot
or urn, and suspend a bag made of felt or
very heavy flannel, so long that it reaches
the bottom, bound on a wire just fitting
the top; put in tho fresh-ground pure
coffee, and pour on freshly boiled water.
The fluid filters through the bag, and
may be used at once; needs no settling,
and retains all its aroma. Tho advantage
of this over the ordinary filter is its
economy, as tho coffee stands and soaks
out the strength, instead of merely letting
the water pass through it. ' Do you boil
it V then inquired the learner. ' Na-a-a-ay,'
said the maid in simple astonishment that
any one should bo so wasteful as to send
the precious aroma away in steam, should
rob that princo of food of that evanescent
something which constitutes his nobility,
and reduce him to a mere aliment. As
soon would one think of throwing away
that drop of sunshine, charged with all
the summer's gold which lies at the throat
of a bottle of Johannisberger."
How to Break Colls to Lead.
Take a piece of common size rope six
or eight feet long : make a noose on one
end large enough to slip easily into the
colt's mouth. Then take the other end
and pass it over his neck, through the
noose on the under side of the mouth,
and you aro ready to begin operations.
Step around to one side of the animal a
few feet off, and command him to movo j
at the same time givo a sudden pull on
the halter. Continue in this manner,
giving a sudden pull sideways (but never
forward) every time tho colt refuses to
move, and gently pat him on tho neck
when he obeys. 13y this method any
colt can generally be broken to lead in a
couple of hours ; after this any kind of
halter can be used. A colt broken in
this manner will not learn to pull back on
the halter, as many do when the method
of pulling forward on the halter and beat
ing to make them lead, is resorted to, as
is often done. Western Rural.
A correspondent of tho New England
Farmer says, if persons who have lost
their cabbage by the caterpillar, which is
tho offspring of the Yen's Bapac, will
another year, after setting out their cab
bages, keep them well sprinkled with a
solution of blue vitriol and water a piece
of vitriol as large as a walnut to a pail of
water they will not bo troubled much
with the worm. Hellebore answers very
well in place of tho vitriol Care must be
taken not to get the solution too strong,
as it is poison. Liquid hen-manure is
also very good.
'If correct this statement is impor
tant: " The omnibus and street car com
panies of New York city have found that
a horse weighing 1,000 or 1,100 pounds
is the most serviceable, and the best food
for him is twelve pounds of hay a day,
15 pounds of corn meal, and two or threo
pounds of salt in a month. Tho hay is
cut, moistened, aud tho meal mixed with
it. Twenty miles of travel a day is ex
pected of him."
' Buckwheat griddle-cakes : Tho
fine brown color so desirable on this fa

improves the flavor of the cakes and
causes them to rise better.

to plant peach trees spring or fall :
Our advice is to procure tho trees this
fall and heel them in carefully, first pru
ning every root, after heeling them in,
take care that no trees or root3 lay across
each other, but tliut tho earth touch
every part of the root. Of course a dry
place should bo selected for tho heeling
in; the trees should have their tops to
ward the south, and tho earth say ono
foot deep over the roots, and four inches
deep along on the bodies, two and a half
or three feet towards their tops. As soon
as tho ground will work clean in the
spring, do tho plnnting out in the orchard,
and then prune the tops as fust as planted,
cutting them so that no tree bo over
three feet out of the ground.

THE Kidneys ire two In number, situated at
the upper part of tho loin, surrounded by
fut, and consisting of three parts, viz t tho An
terior, the Interior and the Exterior.
The Anterior absorbs. Interior consists of
tissues or vels, which serve as a deposit for
the nrine and convey It to the Exterior. The
Exterior Is a conductor also, terminating In a
Bingle 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 the 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, wo must bring Into
action the muscles, which aro engaged In their
various functions. If they nrc neglected, Gravel
or Dropsy may ensue.
The render must also bo mado aware, that
however slight may be the attack, it Is sure to
affect the bodily health nnd mental powers, as

The Gravel. The gravel ensues from neg

These organs being weak, the water is not ex
pelled from tho bladder, but allowed to remain ;

Treatment. Ilclmbold's highly conccntra
ed compound Extrnet Buchu is decidedly one
of the best remedies for diseases of the blad
der, kidneys, bladder, dropsical swellings,
rheumatism and gouty affections. Under this
head we have arranged Dysuria, or difficulty
and pain in passing water, Scanty Secretion, or
small and frequent discharges of water j Stran
gury, or stopping of water j 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 late 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 inllamation, are reduced, and
it is taken by men, women, and children. Di
rcctions for use and diet accompany.

H. T. IIelmbold, Druggist :
Dear Sib 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 treatment of the 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 had used nil kinds of ad
vertised remedies, and had found them worth
less, and, some quite injurious ; in fact, I de
spaired of ever getting well, and determined to
use no remedies hereafter unless I knew of ths
ingredients. It was this that prompted me to
use your remedy. As you advertised that it
was composed of buchu, cubebs, and juniper
berries, it occurred to mo and my physician as
an excellent combination, and, with his advico,
after un examination of the article, and con
sulting again with the druggist, I concluded to
try it. I commenced its use about eight months
ago, at which time I was confined to my room.
From the first bottle I was astonished and grat
ified at the bcnciiclnl effect, aud after using it
three weeks, wqb able to walk out. I felt much
like writing you a full statement of my case at
the time, but thought my improvement might
only be temporary, and therefore concluded to
defer and see if it would effect a perfect cure,
knowing then it would be of more value to you,
and 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 not used any now for three months,
and feel as well in all respects as I ever did.
Your Buchu 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 uso in such
