whoever miht txi the oracle, had to say
VTe had been at Little Creek, Delaware,
for two or the days, having great sport with
the quail, and jst the same time fully pre
pared to take a crack at the ducks when
the hours should cotue fir Uncle Bill (whom
we had engaged) to speak. Passing ly the
old in tD'6 house ouu morning i-arly, ou our
way to a sjiot where we were told wen- a
few woodcock, we found him standing lx -fire
his door intently scanniug the distaut
bay. We hailed him and asked him when
the promised day would come.
'Well, I wish we cud go to day ; but I
can't, and bein' as I sent you no word, I
sec you're going a birdinV
Why in the duce didn't you let us know,
Bill, and why can't yoa go ?' wc asked.

tny gun yesterday, and I've sent her to
Dover by Bob Smith to have her fixed'

Now, Bill, I'll tell you what to do ; go
up to the house, get my heavy gun and try
the ducks to-day ; wc will go out with you
to-mo-'row, and I have no doubt you will
have your own to-nighL'

thit and take good care of her.vtoo.'
Uncle Bill was out all day, aud in the
evening came up to see us, bringing with
him six pairs of widgeon as a rrwnt.

But, Bill, if she is only thirty-two inches,

'So ! no! it's a giod day ; but I see I'll
have to tell you all about it. Darn it ! I'm
just as much disapinU-d as if my oUl gun

Dive in the sti.Twith me and went ti Big
Pond, pot out the stiMils, made a good blind
and hed luck all the forenoon, for the duck

Dave : 'Pap, what's them big birds comin"
this way?' Says Dave again: 'Pap,
them's geese.' I looked out on the bay,
and what should I see but fore of the alfirc
dest bijgest bird I ever seed. I knowd
they wcru't geese, for they didn't honk,
and was white ; there was no u talkin'

of the Country Gentleman, who has no green
house, writes to the editor of that paper to ask
how to take care of his geraniums, coleos, peri
winkles, &c., over winter, and gets this answer : '

kills them, and packed closely in a box of moist
garden soil. A box 12 inches square will hold
from six to twelve plants. The roots shonld be
carefully pressed together and completely covered
with earth, so that no air can come at them.
The tops should be pruned away to three or four
stubs, 10 or 12 inches long. Thus packed they
will keep In an ordinary cellar free from frost,
needing no water or care during winter. The
periwinkles ( Vincus) will live iu pots in the sit-
j tins-room, or in boxe3 in the cellar, being as a
j class quite hardy. Some of the vnrieties (such
i a3 ""nor an'l r. minor virifjrja) will live out
! of doors without protection. Colaus will not tn-

never allowed to get chilled.
Keeping Siieep ox WnEAT Farms. Every
wheat grower possessing one hundred and sixty
acres of land, -lion Id keep at least one huudred
f hep, and his farm should be so fenced that
they may be chauscd from one field to another
every two years. By this system the land may
be kept tolerably free from weeds, and always
be in good condition for wheat.
My ptan is this : I keep a flock of about one
hundred and fifty, and every spring, seed thirty
acres with timothy and clover. The following
spring my sheep and cattle are turned into this
field, where they are kept two seasons, plowing
it up in the fall of the second year (or wheat the
next. This field is now clear and will produce
large crops for three or lonr years. When I fint
commenced thin practice, immediately after the
war, my land was so completely overrun with
weeds that it would not produce a paying crop,
while the wild rose bushes were so thick that
my hands and knees needed to be case-hardened
in order to sI.ick it with any degree of comfort.
I now get large crops of wheat on the o!det
land, and there cannot be a briar found on the
farm. The benefit to the land pays for the keep
ing of the sheep, and I have the woo! and in
crease clear profit. This year my flock sheared
four and three-fourths pounds per head, and pro
duced between forty and fifty Iambs. Every fall
I sort out all the wethers over two years old and
the old ewes, feed them three or four months
and sell them for mntton, at generally from five
to sis dollars per head. I also sell from fifty to
sixty dollars worth of mntton to the butchers
during the summer, and can always have a sup
ply of fresh meat for my own table at small cost.
j Some seasons I have turned my flock into a
I field without seeding, using the plow wherever
j opportnnity presented during the summer. This
i pian works well also, and a field served in this
. way will prodnce as much wheat the next year
j as it would in two year following without.
: When this plan is adopted, sufficient stock must
1 be put on to keep the weeds from going to seed.

Remedy rou Looseness is tue Bowels or
' 1 Choleim Mohbts. It is an old-thing and has
I probably been told thousands of times, yet some
' may have forgotten and others may never havu
! heard it. Mix two tablespoonsful of wheat flour
with just water enough to moisten the flour;
drink it. If tho first doe does not check pair,
or purging, repeat the dos ia half an honr.
Severe cases sometimes require a third dose.
Remedy for Ssake Bites. Quite an interest
ing pamphlet, written by Mr. Fredel, has been
read before the French Aeadeihie dt Ifedicint in
regard to the bites of the viper. One fact men
tioned is the method nsed by the Hindoos, which
method of treatment has come somewhat into
vogue to rrcvent hydrophobia in India. When
a native is bitten by a snake, his companions
take slicks and drive the BUtferer about for
hours, making him move along briskly by means
of blows. Mr. Labouieme, who presented the
work to the notice of the academy, stated that at
the Jar din de Tlantew, when the attaches were
bitten by snakes, they were dosed with brandy
and forced to take the most violent exercise, and
with good results. This treatment has a good
deal of sound reason abont it. Every physician
knows that constant violent action has saved
many a life when opium or any of its prepara
tions have been taken.
Cm okal for Headache. Dr. E. M. Nolan,
in the Atlantic Medical and Surgical Journal,
describes the following cure of a very painful
headache in a lady. He dissolved 13 or 30 grains
of chloral in very little water, and with a tip of
a finger rubbed it upon one of her temples until
j she con id sensibly feel the burning, and the skin
was reddened. The part rubbed was no larger
than a silver dollar. The pain was entirely re
lieved and remained so. The Doctor has also
used this method of appljing chloral for head
ache with success in many other cases, some
times rubbing on one temple, and sometimes ou
both. No permanent sign is left.
To Clean Tinware. An experienced house
keeper says the best thing for cleaning tinware
is common soda. Dampen a cloth and dip in
, soda and rub the ware briskly, after which wipe
! dry ani it will look equal to new.

Receipt for Preserving Citrox. Citron is
! grown only for preserviug, and has none of the
! qualities of the citron melon. To preserve it eut
it in slices an inch broad, pare it, take out the
! seeds, weigh it, put in a proper kettle with cold
: water enough to cover it, placing at the bottom
of the kettle n layer of green grape leaves, and
' theu a layer of citron, another layer of leaves,
j Ac, and as the leaves shrivel np add more, and
: let it boil until perfectly tender. While this is
' going on, take half a pound of raw ginger aud
j the rind of four lemons, and with a quart of
j water put in a separate kettle and let boil from
a half to three-quarters of an hour ; strain it and
pour over Ihe sugar while warm, then put on a
slow fire to dissolve. This done, take the citron
from the other kettle, drain it as dry as possible
through a colander-and add to th, sirnp, using
i also the inside of the four lemons In slices, id
l let the triofe t'uHnicr until the citron become
j irmsparetit. The grnpe leaves, which is to give
: color to the citron, are of course thrown away
j after having performed their office. When the
j preserve is done, put in tumblers, and after rn
j m lining uncovered for two days to allow of
evaporation, cover with white paper dipped iu
i the white of an egg. This is intended for six
pounds of citron and six of sugar.
This iss the best receipt for preserving cil rou,
regarded by many as the queen of all preserves,
that I have ever tried, and which U now ofTereil
in print for the benefit of nil housekeepers who
may choose to avail themselves of it.
