It wasn't bo when I was young
We used plain language then ;
We didn't speak of "them golloot9,"
Meanin' boys or men.
When speaking of the nire hand write
Of Joe, or Tom, or Bill.
We did it plain we didn't s;iy,
"He slings a nasty quill."
An' when we see a gal we liked,
Who never failed to please,
We called ber pretty, neat and good,
But not "about the cheese."
Well, when wc meet a good old friend.
We hadn't lately seen.
We greeted him, but didn't t-ny,
"Hello, ynti old sardine !'
The boys some time got mad an' fit ;
We spoke of kicks and blows :
But now they "whack hira on the snoot,'
Or "baste him on the nose."
Once, when a youth was turned away.
By her he held most dear,
He walked upon his feet but now
He "walks off on bl ear."
We used to dance when I was young
And used to call it so ;
But now they don't they only "sling
The light fantastic toe."
Of death wc spoke in language plain,
That m one did perplex ;
But in these days one doesn't die
He "passes in his checks.'
We praised the man of common sense :
"His judgment's uood,'" we said ;
But now they say, "Well, that old plum
Has got a level head."
It's lather sad the children now
Arelearnin oil sich talk ;
They've .earnt to "chin" instead of chat :
An" "wall." insiT.atl f will,.
To little Harry, yesterday
My graudehild, aged two
I saiti, "You lore grandpa ?" Slid he,
"You bet your boots I do.'
The children bowed to rtrangers once ;
It is no longer so--The
little girls, us well as boys,
X greet you with "II-llo !"
Oil, give inc back the good old days.
When 1 oth the old and youn-r
Conversed In plain, o' J -fashioned word
And slang was never "slung !"

A Saratofa Belle. The scrio comic
writer, EH Perkins.' in a letter from Sara
toga to a New York paper, gives the fol
lowing pleasant hit of a Saratoga belle of
IIere is the picture of the hclle of Sara
toga as i-he looks to lay : Hair scollopjit d
in frent anl braided down behind in one
straight braid ten inches long, which
hanging from the hat looks like the handle
of a dipper. Hat on back of the head,
with narrow brim turned up and down
and sidewine, and skewed and twisted
around as if it had Ix-cn run ever by a lo
comotive. Each veiled well with tulle,
which is also muffled around the neck so
that the chin rests ou it, and the head looks
like a hen on a nest of down. Dress black
yak or grenadine, short enough not to
touch the floor, straight down in front, but
long behind, and pulled back over the hips.
Xo hoops, and the bottom of the dress so
narrow that the young lady cannot take
"How does she walk 'i
'She don't walk ; she wriggles along as
men do in a sack race. This dres9 shows
the form beautifully, aud it is a great im
provement on the old flowing skirt.
Young ladies are now standing perfectly
erect. Their chests are expanded aud
tlieir shoulders are thrown back. The
t-hocs worn are the only part of the toilet
subject to criticism. These are narrow,
high-heeled bunion makers. They cause
the young lady to limp, and they must
also be the cause of a great deal of profani
ty when the young lady is left alone. The
parasols is a big black or blue or brown
umbrella, bordered with lace. Fans are
ordinary, and more for use than ornament.
Hair is worn natural, and as yet uo young
ladies have appeared with saffron-colored
locks. Beauly is not of the Lydia Thomp
son school, and only the tlritii vwwle dye,
paint or powder. Gloves are from three to
six-buttoned. Xo lockets, neck chains or
watch chains are worn, the jewelry be
ing rings, a plaiu pin and a chatelaine
braid, or oxidized silver chain from the
b'.et, to which is suspended oxidized smell
ing bottles, pocket-book, or anything else
which fancy may attach.'
In a Borrowed Livery. A very fun
ny story, aimed at those clergy of the High
Church persuasion who make their dress a
part of their religion, is told as follows in
a letter from London : Tlie other day the
Roman Catholic Bishop of Nottingham,
being in London, walked in the cool of the
evening in Kensington gardens, in com
pany with a friend of his, au officer in the
army. They met a priest- to all appear
ances a Roman priest who had a woman j
on his arm, who had Iter hand in his. and I
wno was making fast and furious love to
her. The face of the Bishop flushed red ; he
passed on ; but he instantly turned back,
and, overtaking the priest, begged pennm-
sion to speak to him. 'May I ask, sir, ifj
you arc a priest 3" 'Yes,' was the reply. I
'A Catholic priest ?' 'Yes.' 'And may I j
ask under the jurisdiction of what bishop '
are you ?' 'Before I answer that question,'
said t!io priest, 'I nhould like to know to
whom I am talking ?' 'lam the Bishop j
of Nottingham,' said his Lordship. 'But ;
we have, no such Bishop . in the English j
Church,' replied the priest. 'Oh!' ex-I
claimed the Bishop, 'then you belong to I
the English Church ; I am delighted to
Tienr ir, nml I :wg your pr,U. with all '
my life ; but I do wish that you would not j
walk about in our uniform !' !
Some ncriltblor, writing from Cliic.tgo,
lias pt;riK;tratod the followiug calumny on
an outside paper : While several entle
ineu were sitting in the bar-room of oue of
our lioU-la, a few days ago, oue of them,
)eing a Chicago man, was of course boast
ing of the nujK-riority of Chicago over any
other spot in the world. Finally, he
claimed that it wan the hutlthicHt city in
the world (notwithstanding the large dele
gation of her citizens who are annually
obliged to visit the Arkansas Hot Springs)",
and said, that the "death rate" wassmal!
- r than that of ajy other city. At this
point an individual, evidently much in
toxicated also, joatcd in the conversation
thusly : "W-woll, d-don't you know the
re-reason mo' folks don't die'n Ch(hic)
cago ?" The Chbago man said he supposed
it was because cf the salubrity of the air.
"N-no," respoLded the inebriated party,
shaking his heal, with a very wise look ;
Vr-reasou mo' folks don't die'n Chicago
is, Ml is so full n-no room for 'em !'
Ax Iowa paper reports the following as
the actual form of a marriage ceremony
iu that State : 'Jjjn your right hands. Do
you want one another?' (They both
answered 'Yes.') "Well then have one an
other. Yon're man and wife.
'Who was tlie meekest man ?' asked &
Sunday school ttacher. 'Moses.' 'Very
well, who was the meekest woman ?'
NVvot wax any."

IS 5 s
Fkf.mno Swikb is Summer. A correspondent
of the Germantovn Telegraph writes : "My own
theory of pork raising, based upon experience,
observation, and probably a little philosophy of
things, if written for the benefit of others, would
be about as follows : During the hot summer
months I wonld feed very little solid feed, such
as corn in tlie ear or nncracked. I would keep
hogs upon green feed constantly, either grass,
oats or rye, and feed them at regular intervals,
once or twice a day, upon mashed feed, either
shorts, chopped oats or rye, buckwheat, etc., fed
in troughs. When fed in this way, and at tlie
same time allowed access to water aud shade,
hogs will bear crowding through the hot months,
a very good time, if not the best, to take on
flesh. This puts them in the best of condition
for corn feeding, which shoald commence about
the first of September, wheu the new crop is still
soft and tender. Treated in this way hogs be
come probably as perfect as any method could
make them. Upon the whole, I believe it the
cheapest and most economical."
Ripening Fruit. Upon the principle that a
renewal of the earth immediately surrounding
the root increases their activity and accelerates
the maturing of all parts of the plant, including
the fruit, Mr. Stall removed the earth about an
early pear tree three weeks before the normal
period of ripening, for a space of thirteen to fif
teen feet in diameter, and to such an extent as
to leaTe a depth or earth over the roots of only
about two to four inches, which could be tho
roughly warmed by the sun. He was surprised
not only by the ripening of the fruit in the mid
dle of July, but also by its superior juiciness and
flavor. In another experiment the removal of
the earth from the north side of a tree alone
caused the fruit to ripen several days earlier
than on the south side. Frequent watering was
of course necessary in the above experiments.
MANCFACTt-mso Mascre. We are pleased to
notice, says the Germantoirn Telegraph, that
farmers are getting into the encouraging prac
tice of manufacturing more manure or fertilizing
matter upon their own premises than ever before.
They find, upon a trial, that they can provide a
double quantity of superior manure by hauling
in wood mould, when it can be obtained without
dauage to the land ; sods from every corner and
spot where they can be found handily ; muck
.from their ponds or dams, or marshes ; scrap
ings from the wood pile, &c. These, mixed
well with stable manure and some plaster, put
in oblong heaps, and turned over once or twice,
will accomplish this pu.pose. We hare noticed
that along many highways where they are nar
row and run through high embankments, there
are god and soil enough in a quarter of a mile to
help to make a hundred cords of manure of the
very best q-ality. For spring use it should be
made in antumn, and for autumn use in early
Remedies for Cuokeo Cattle. Besides the
many remedies for relieving choked cattle, as by
turning down oil or soap, by pushing the ob
struction down the throat with a whiplstock, or
probing, crushing between two hammers, &c, a
few new methods are proposed by those who
have tried them. Oue is to pour down a pint or
more of warm water, In which is dissolved a
quantity of soft soap. On passing the hand
along the throat the apple or other obstruction
is thrown up immediately. Another is to place
a round stick as large as can be used in the ani
mal's month, as a bit is put in the mouth of a
horse, and after confining by strings to the horns,
let the animal loose, and it will soon be relieved.
Letting the animal loose aud making it move
about has always relieved our cattle without any
other treatment, and this should always be tried
Cct Worms. The New Tork Tnt says: "We
have succeeded in greatly redncing the number
of this pest by enticing a flock of ponltry into
the field which was being plowed. The fowls
follewed the plow closely, picking up every cut
worm exposed, and searching every furrow for
more. There is no other way of ridding the
fields of these vermin bnt by eneonraging their
natural enemies. There are crows aud black
birds, which devour the grubs, nnd sknuks and
moles, which destroy both the grubs and beetles,
of which they are the larvse. While these
creatures are killed or driven off we shall suffer
from the depredations of the insects, which are
their natural prey. To prevent the destruction
of the young coin by the cut worm to some ex
tent, the seed should be rolled in common pine
tar, and then dried in plaster before it is sown."
The Gardener's Jfonthlrj says there is no mys
tery whatever as to the cause of the "yellows"
in the peach tree. "If you dig around a peah
with the yellows you will be first struck with a
'mush-roomy'smell. Picking out the roots, and
examining them with a lens, you will see mil
lions of thread-like fibres, which are the mycelia
of fungi. These sat the young fibres, and leave
only the main roots, through which all the nutri
ment of the plant has to be gathered , and as aa
old root is unable to do much more than draw
in water, the tree becomes in a measure starved,
and the leaves become yellow, j ust as they would
be if growing in poor soil, which, though the
plant might have pleuty of roots, furnished
nothing for the roots to est. To have plenty of
roots and no food, is equivalent to having plenty
of food and no roots. The remedies which look
to the destruction of this root parUite are em
ployed, not water has done it : so has a weak
solution of salt ; others have found a weak solu
tion of potash succeed " Sufferers by this di
ease will take the hint.
We have read about two hundred and fifty
methods, or rather references to the way
"scratches" in horses should be treated. But
there is no danger of the scratches if horses are
treated properly. Dirty stalls, and long stand
ing in mud, and especially in clay stalls, and a
neglect to wash daily the feet of the animal, are
what produce this disease, sometimes leading to
"quarter crack" and greatly diminishing his
usefulness and value. But when, from any cause,
the scratches do come, among the many curatives
is a thick paste of gunpowder, well pulverised,
two parts, and common salt one part, diluted in
strong vinegar, aud rub two or three times daily,
first thoroughly washing with castile soap and
Remedi for Looseness in the Bowels oh

Lemon Sirup. Lemons are recommended aa
very wholesome and useful in certain states of
the system. People often crave an acid of some
kind, particularly in the warm days of spring
nnd summer. When lemons are cheap they
should be made into sirup for future use. Press
out the juice of the lemons and remove the seeds,
which give a bitter taste ; separate the pulp
from the peel, and boil the former, in the pro
portion of a dozen pulps to a pint of water, to
extract the acid. Ten minutes' boiling is suffi
cient; strain the water into the juice; add a
pound of white sugar to a pint of the juice ; boil
the whole ten minutes and bottle it. Ono or two .
tablespoonsfnl of this lemon simp in a tumbler
of water, will make a cooling, healthful beverage.
