FAEM AND HOUSEHOLD ITEMS

A curious point of inquiry among
KoolosUtH lias been, fur h lonir time, how
many eggs there are in the ovary of a lion.
To determine thin, a German naturalist A
' aliort time since instituted some careful In
vestigations, the result of which showed
' the ovary of a hen to contain about 000
embryo eggs. He also ascertained that
acme twenty of these are matured the fust
year, abont 120 during the second year,
lilfi during the third, 114 during the fourth,
and during the fifuli, sixth, seventh, and
eighth years the number decreases by
twenty annually ; it consequently following
that, after tlio fourth, or at most the fifth
yoar, hens are no longer profitable as layers,
it may lie in exceptionable Instances. Home
interesting experiments wore also made a
aliort time since in Germany to determine
the comparative feoundity of ducks and
hens that is, from which of the two the
linger number of eggs could be obtain
ed in the mime time. For this purpose
three hens and three ducks were selected,
hatched in Februaiy and nourished with
suitable food. The following autumn the
difck had laid 225 eggs, while the lion
laid none. In the next February the laying
season bewail again with the ducks and con
tinued uninterruptedly till August. " They
showed no inclination to set, but became
very thin, although they afterwards fatted
up somewhat. The total number of eggs
laid by tliu liens amounted to 258, or 80
engs each, and 301), or 1"! each for the
vtuve rather longer tliau llioso of the ducks
vein rather umaller than those of the bens,
yet they proved to be decidedly superior in
nutritive material, so that the superiority
in productiveness was decidedly with the
duck. In regard to tho means or possi
bility of deciding the sex of eggs much
d iffcrence of opinion exists. M. Genin In
a communication to the French academy
of sciences, on this subject states that be is
now able, after having investigated tho
matter carefully for seveial years to state
that all eggs containing the germ of males
have wrinkles on their smaller ends, while
female cpgs are smooth at the extremities-
Shall We Feed W heat 1
Fifty years ago there lived along the Mo
hawk River a ulass of men who were fa
mous for their line and valuable horses.
Wlioat in those days bore but a small price
compared with the price of these times, but
so were corn and oats very low ; and these
ineiiofthe Mohawk country were in tho
habit of feeding wheat when they wished
to put their favoiile horses into the best
possible condition. They formed a correot
estimate of itsvaluefroni actual experience.
There is oiio caution, peihaps, proper ; the
wheat should be coarsely ground or soaked
for a sutllcieut time in water to so soften
tho kernels as to bring them within the
rouch of the digestive powers of the ani
mals' stomach. If something of this kind
is not done, it will be found that a consid
erable portion of the grain will pass through
the animals undigested. If the newspaper
reports are true as to the magnitude of this
year's wheat crop, economy will require
that in many cases it should enter largely
into the food of animals in those seetions
where the corn crop has proved to bo very
Large Cheese. .
An Ohio paper announces that a monster
cheese is to be made in that State for
exhibition at the Philadelphia Centennial.
Jt is to weigh fourteen tons, and will meas
ure tblrteeu feet In diameter and eleven
foot in thickness. It will be mad in May,
1870. It is becoming the custom in various
localities abroad to cut up a . large cbeeo
for the ChMstmas market, and in England
the advent of big cheeses from this country
is looked for , with ..interest. ; The Ionian
"atoamer which left New York a fortnight
ago took out a number weighing from j00
to U0Q ptmuds each, one weighing Over , 1,
800 pounds, and one weighing 2,200 pounds.
The make and cure : are said to be perfect.
The ait of making these large cheeses ap
pears to bu well understood in this country.

Th'.! qnestiojn is almost daily asked, "What
is the cause of the un paralleled success of
Vinegar Ritttchs?" Our answer is, that
they remove the causo of disease, and tho
patient recovers his health. Thoy are the
great blood purifier and a life-giving prin
ciple, a perfect Renovator and In vifjorator
of tho system. Never before in the history
of the world has a medicine been com
pounded possessing tho remarkable qual
ities of Vinkqak Bitters in healing the sick
of every disease man is heir to. They tire a

and avoid the use of nlcoholie stiniulnnts
