iay, eays ilie Chicago 7Viunf, a simple
minded German called ou a grocer to pay
a bill, giving him a ten-dollar note. The
Srocer examined it closely, and haid :
'Huloo, where dSTou get this note ?' Vot
is the reasons mid thote note V repled the
honest Teuton ; 'don't she vasb good,
hein V 'Good I' answered the grocer, 'why,
you're a lucky man that note is worth
ten dollars and fifty ctnts.' 'Is dot so?

'Tcll, aud notes siiruoi by Spinner are

more ior thciu than fur the new issue.'
'By shimmy is dot so' 'Yes. I:mme
tec your bills. Why ever one of them is
a Spiuuer! Mau alive, yonr fortune is
made.' In pursuance of the grocer's ad
vice, Mr. Schneider called at the Sub-Treasury,
Saturday afternoon, to gft the pre
mium on his bills. What success lie had
it is imposible to stale, but lie was s -en
later in the evening lurking round the
street by which the jrocer must go home,
and on bem accosted by an acquaintance
tlm f-iliowiii-; conversation took place :

when they halted she hitched "the team,

basket of eggs and her shopping satchel as
she handed them out. They disposed of
their produce at the grocery, and then en
tered a dry goods store.
She made a few trifling purchases of
thread, pins, needles and such thiugs, and
then called for two knots of yarn.
'That won't be enough, Mary,' said the
man, pluking at her dress.'

'Wal, that's none o' your business ; thet-e

I'kayino I"mi:i: a Difauvaxtaok.--An
enthusiastic old gentleman, well known
as a traveling evangelist, wandered out in-
J to the purlieus of a western city recently
and struck an unregr-uerated liimily who
lidn't stem to know what prayer meant.
There was a tall, gaunt old lady and sever
1 chi ldrcn, and our evangelist, horrilied to
find so much heathenism in a Chrisliau
community, invited them to join him, and
he could show them what prajer was,
and droping down on his knees commenc-
d an earnest supplication.
N . ., there was an unregenerated dog in
that family also, aud Itefore the first sen
tence of the prayer was completed the
. Hiigs of the canine were fastened iu that
'ortiou of the old gentleman's raiment
which lie sits down upon.
The family had remaiued standiug, aud
the old lady, observing the dog's action,
shouted out :
Go on with the prayer, ol f;ller. I'll
attend to the dog !
And she seemed very much dissappoiut
d to think that the 'ole feller' couldn't
prsy and b dog meat at the same time.
A good many stories of steamers are
told, but non; of recent date belter than
the following of Piatt Evaus, .f Cincinnati.
It was one of his plearsurs to teach his
friends how to purchase tender geese,
though he could not alwavs get them in
ttie market. One morning ho saw a lot,
und inquired how many then; were.
'About a dozen,' wax the reply. 'W-w-well,'
said Piatt, 'I k-k-keep a h-bo.irding-house,
and my b-b-boarders are the biggest
-caters you ever s-s-saw. P-p-pick out
n-nine of the t-toughest you've g-g-got.'
The farmer complied, and laid aside the
other three tender ones. Piatt picked
them up carefully, and, putting them in
his basket, said, 'I b-b-bciieve I'll take

ir three monthsage a Delroiter started to
build a house,and, as he had always heard
his wife 'jawing around' about the lack of
cupboards in the houses, he determined to
Sfive her an agreeable surpiise. She went
tip with him a drvy or two ago, and he
(Kiicted out eleven different cupboards to
her, and asked. Xow what do you say ?'
'Wall,' she replied, after another look
aronud, 'if there was another cupboard off

THE I.HiHT RUNNING "DOMESTIC."
The "DOMESTIC" is an exceedingly simple
machine in all its parts and processes. It is
easily understood ; familiarity with its action is
very quickly acquired, and it needs hardly any
practice of n' f kill in the operator.
The superior advantage obtained in the "Do
vkstii." ure mainly :
1. Light Runniug.
2. Quietness no Cams or Gear Wheels.
3. Perfect Stitch Double-thread Lock Stitch.
4. Durability anting from SimplTeity of Con
struction. 5. Absence of all Friction,
fi. Great range of Work.
7. Ease of Operation.
We do not say that the "Domestic" is the only
Machine worthy of public favor. We admit
there fire soaie possessing real nnd acknow
ledged merit ; but we do claim, and are prepared
to demonstrate, that the "Domestic" has many
excellences that render it thcitUdly mptrinr to
any other Machiut now before the public.
Let every woman, therefore, examine for her
self into Its merits when she buys a machine.
This Is an important purchase, not to be care
lessly made ; one that will Influence her com
fort, probably foi- a long lime. With a "Domes
tic" in her possession, she will find her sewing
become u pleasant exercise of skill and taste, in
stead of a slow manual drudgery ; she will have
the time aud strength to add beauty and elegance
to work in which before she has been obliged to
content herelf with bare utilitv.

Salt ros Domestic Animals. Sa't is sot
only a oiild aperient or aeobstruent, bat it ope.
rates, to some extent, as a tonic. It is -ry
great rectifier of the acid ity of the stomaech. when
taken in proper quantities; and it notsonly
renders very palatable, food which would be dis
agreeable and insipid without it, bat it keeps the
functions of the stomach in a healthy state, and
often alleviates the effect of debility and dis
ease. The true way is to have a tub of salt
pla'-ed where cattle, horses, and heep ean have
access to it at all time, whether they are in the
pasture or in the barnyard. Then when the
appetite call for a lick of salt, Ibey ran go and
get il, at the very time it is most needed, and
when it will exert the most beneficial effct on
digestion or any part of the system.
A good plan is to keep salt in a small tub or
strong, water tight pail in the pasture during
the pasturing season, and in the yard during v
winter. Animal will not consume as much
when they are supplied with it in this way as
they will when tbey are sailed once or twice
during a week. It is slovenly and wasteful to
throw salt 00 the ground for animals, and es
pecially for sheep, as they will often waste half
as much a they consume.
For sailing sheep, drive three or four high
stakes around a pail, or small tub, leaving one
side only, so that they can thrust their heads
separately inio it. For cuttle and horses, en
circle the tub with a lot of boulders as high aa
the top of it, or drive a half dozen strong stakes
around it letting them extend above it a few
inches, to protect it from being pawed to frag-
inents. If the tub is water-tight, in case it
should rain in It there will be nothing lost, as
they will lien the salt water as they will the
salt ; and should the water evaporate, the alt
will remain. When sheep or r.eai cattle are
kept in pasture where there 1 much clover
(trifolium prottnte), they usually have a great
hankering after salt ; and If tbey can have ie- -cess
to it, they will go and lick, more or less,
several times during the day ; and they will
rectify the acidity of the stomach, and keep
them from bloating. Many a farmer has lost a
fine auimal, in consequence of bloating, which
one pound of salt would have kept In good
heallh. Scientific American.
How to Manage Yocso Pigs. Until the pigs
are a week old, we expect the sow to furnish all
the food the pigs require, for unless she ean do
so, she is not fit to be a breeder. And here I
would say something about the selection of a
good breeding sow. First select the best a far
I as can be judged, from outward appearauces,
with a good, sound constitution. When the sow
has the first litter, if she throw good pigs,
sound and lively, ana can furnish a good flow of
milk, then she should be kept as a breeder ; if
she cannot suckle her young properly, cannot
supply enough milk to keep the young porkers
in good, healthy condition, for the first week at
least then she shonld be discarded. If this were
generally observed, we would have much better
swine than we now have.
When the young pigs are about a week old,
have a small or low trough put where the lit
tle pigs can get to it at all times, yet out
of the reach of the old sow. The young
pigs will soon learn to eat out of it, and thus
help to fatten themselves and relieve the mother.
We first give skim milk, after which soar or
thick milk is given. The trough should be kept
well supplied, so the pigs cau have as much and
as often a they wish. This Is the true way to
feed a pig, and the sooner began the more pro
fitable. As to the age of weaning pigs, many breeders
differ, some saying not until eight weeks, while
others wean them at four weeks. We have
weaned them at four weeks with no bad result,
bul think six weeks is better. Live Stock Jour

ay In his "Domestic Annuals' and may have
occasion to refer to the subject again. Gapet

opening the mouth and forcing a pegion leather,
with a tuft of the feather left on the end, (the
others having been stripped off) down the wind
pipe geutlv turning It as withdrawn, to be re
pealed the following day if necessary. This de
laches large numbers of a slender red worm col
lected in the larynx of the throat, which impeaes
respiration and swallowing. A little spirits of

Prevention of the Freezing or Fhcit in

spreading a thick layer of frozea manure, or of
Ice or snow, around the trees, in February or

buds will thus be kept back, since the ground
will thaw more slowly, and the roots convey so
nutriment to the tree. When frosts are no long
