THlE GARDEN AND TU1RNIP PATCH.
Mr. Editor,--Every body certainly likes
to see, if all do not like to eat, luxuriant
vegtables. The season for the earlier varie
ties is past, the' later sorts such as okra, to
mattes, mutton corn, et cet, are just coming
in, and wvith their appearance has arrived
the time (from the. 10th of Jnly to the 10th
of August) for sowing that wholesome, nu
tricious, and delicate vegetable-the turnip.
-Many persons, who do not plant this vege
table in their gardens, and others, who cowv
pen for a few weeks some poor, sterile red
knob, from which they unreasonably expect
to harvest- a large crop of turnips, and arte
disappointed if they do not, imagine the tur
nip a coarser species of vegetable because
in their minds- " turnip greens and old ned"
are two dishes inseparable. Bunt treat one
of these grumblers to a well boiled, large
luscious turnip, and he could scarcely divine
'what he was eating. .Then how can these
fine turn ips be producedi They can be grown
,with little troubled, no expense but the cost.
,of the seed, and on any ground properly pre
.pared ; as follows:
ILay off with a plow (or in small gardens
se the spade) dlrills fourteen inches apart,
running two furrdws one in the other with a
common straight shovel plow, and then in
that a-gain a third'furrow'with a narrow sharp
bull tongde plow. '(In the garden 'dig with
the spade treuches fourteen inches apart
twice the alepth of ihe spade.) In this trench
.or furrow drill with 'a liberal hand as much
manure as can~ be spared from the stable,
cowhouse, pig-pen, or ash.hopper; then with.
a twister or turn plow.*run two furrows be-'
tween these drills covering,.the mnanure.. (In
the garden cover it with the hoe.) You will
then have .ridges fourteeftr inches apart; on
these ridges open with the cornier of -the be
small drills, and witth the fingers drill in the
seed as thinly as possibleat the rate of two
pounds per acre; an ounce. or two should
dill a garden twenty 'feetaspuare. After the
seed are sown cover with a rake, and pit the
top of the ridge smoothly with the back of
a hoe or shovel.:.'
When the turnips are tip and show them
selves plainly, sprinkle seach row with fresh
ashes or plaster.' When the leaves are about
two 'inches long, thin thern out to bdut three
or four inchbs ; tvben thb -turnips get about
the size of eggs thin then .again to. ahodt
eiht .inches apart ; hoo them well -at this
thining to loosen the surfaco of the ground.
and then' wait for thorn to grow. One gar
'din bed prepsred and cultivated in this wvay
will yield a.-greate~r quantity of ve~getable
matter, thin if planted in any othier vegetable.
Of the seeds to platnt, we wonkd suggest
the following kincfs. particularly the last, the
early Dutch, white globe, purple top, flat
Norfolk, and Swedish or Rtabga.*
We do not approve of .importing manures
or using guano. . And if any persons who
has a horse, cow,.pig, .ash-hopper, or garden,
thinks- .the above method too troublesome,
they do not deserve fine turnips, and any one
who will try it we guarrantee will not repent
the experiment. Don't sow broadcast if you
should plant as much as ten ecres.
Yours respectfully, DoxEsTIc.
* Buy your seed from a professional seedsman,
do not attempt to raise them. The costis very light
and the difference in quality is very material.
IH0W TO KEEP HARNESS IN ORDEL
In answer to an inquiry for information
as to the best mode. of cleaning and oiling
harness, 4'c., we re-publish the substance of
an article given in the Rural New Yorker :
Observing the good condition and fine ap
pearance. of the harness of Ald. Baker, pro.
prietor of the most extensive livery establish.
ment in Rochester, we requested him to
impart to us, for publication, the modus ope
randi by which so desirable an ,object was
achieved. In coipliance therewith,'he stated
the-course. adopted as the .best and most
economical, after twenty years' experience
in a business which required considerable at
tention to tackling apparatus. His process
of oiling and washing harness is substantial
ly as follows:
Take neats foot oil and ivory or patent
black-the latter well pulverised, or to be
made so before using. Mix thoroughly, ad.
ding the black untill the oil is well colored
or quito black. In cool weather the oil
should be warmed somewhat before mixing.
With a sponge apply a light coat of the mix.
ture-only what the leather will readily ab
sorb, unless the harness is very dry, in which
case a heavier coating may be necessary.
After the harness is dry-which will be in
from two hours to half or a whole day, de.
pending upon the weather and previous con
dition of the leather-wash thoroughly with
soapsuds. In making the suds use good Cas
tile soap and cold rain-water. Warm water
should never be used on harness leather.
Apply the suds with a sponge. Rub off with
buckskin. This will give your harness a
nice, glassy surface, and the leather will re
tain a good color and continue pliable for
months.. If it becomes solid with mud or
sweat, an application of soap and water as
above directed (without oiling) will be suffi
cient to give it a bright appearance.
Two applications of this oil and black
mixture a year (or once every six months)
will be sufficient to heep harness, as ordina
rily used, in'good order. - It may be necessa
ry for livery men, a:nd others who use har.
ness constantly, to apply the oil oftener-but
in most cases, two oilings a year and wash.
ing with suds when soiled, will keep a har
ness in good trim for sight and service. This
process will pay a large dividend in extra
service and durability-to say nothing of
Ald. B. assures us that the same, or a very
similar, application is just the thing' for car
riage tops which are mado of top leather.
The only difference in treatment is, that less
oil should be used, or rather a lighter coating
applied-and it should be washed off before
drying in, top-leather being thin and much
more penetrable than harness. Of course
this mixture would not, answer for enamelled
leather, of which some carriage tops are
- PEAS AND SwEE'r PoTATOBS FOR FA-Tax
IG Hoos.-Mr. Nathan Winslow, of Per
quimons county, fattens hogs for slaughter
and sale, as well as for his own comsump
tion almost entirely on peas and swveet
potatoe~s From the 1st to the 15th of Sep.
tenber, the hogs are turned on a pea field.
At the, same time, a small portion of the
seet. potato ground is fenced, off. The
woodland is close at hand, and the bogs are
turned therein every day. This in done be
cause be deems it better for the health of the
hogs. Every night, alternately, the hogs
are terned into the pea- fields and the pota
toes-new portions of tho latter being
brought in as the first enclosed are exhausted.
Thus kept on peas and potatoes alone (for
he supposed they get very little from the
woods) the hogs become very fat. For
change of food, and late in the fattening,
swill is added to the food, made of turnips,
boiled with a little corn meal, and seasoned
with salt.-Mr. Winslow'is confident' that
the corn consumed during the whole time of
fattening does not exceed the average of a
peck for each hog; therefore, the fattening
is due, in a very slight degree, to corn,, and
almost entirely to the peas and potatoes.
Peas alone will fatten very considerably, but
not enough to make good pook. But with
potatoes, the hogs are not only made very
fat, but their fat is even more firm and white
than of hogs fattened on corn. After cold
weather requires that potatoes should be dug,
they are boiled before being fed to the. hogs.
Mr. Winslow is a very large and successful
raiser of hogs, and seller of pork. I learn
from others that his pork, fattened as above
stated, is deemed the best in the markets.

WuKERB MosQUITOBs COMa' Fnos.-A
wvriter on enton-ology, discnssing about these
summer pests thus handles the subject;
"'ITbe mosquito proceeds from the animal
cua, conimonly termed the " wiggle-tail."
I took a bowl of clean wvater and set it in'
the sun. ' In a few. days some half dozen
wiggle-tails wereyvisible. These continued to
inrease in size until they were about 3-16ths
of an inch in length. As they approached
teir maturity they remained longer at the
surface, seeming to live in the two mediums
-air and water;-finally, they assumed a
chrysalis fornri, and, by an increased specific
gravity, sank to the bottopn of the bowl.
Here, in a fewshours, I perceived short black
furze, or hair, growing on every side' of 'each,
until it assumed the size of'a minute cater
pillar.- And thus its specific 'gravity being
counteracted, or lightened, it rapidly floated
to the surface, and the slightest breath of air
wafted it against the side of 'the bowl. .In
a very brief space of time -afterwards, the
warm atmosphere hatched out the fly, and it
escaped, leaving its tiny house upon the wa
ter. How beautiful, yet how simple! .
A fter the, water had gone through this
'process, I found it perfectly free from ani
mnalcla.' - therefore came to the conclusion
that this wiggle-tail is a species of the shark,
who l~aving devoured whole tribes of ani
miclw ietakes to himself wings and escapes
into a dilferent medium to- torture mankind;
iind deposit eggs upon the water to produce
other wiggle-tails, ~who' in, turn produces
Any man. ho has "kept -house.;" with a

season, and ."'milli~unaof them will fly up in
your face. Clid.~hewindows of your room

prvuslj to excludeevery mosquito, and go

.r.m it during the night to gie you any sat
sfactory amount of trouble. In fact, tand
ng by a shallow- half-stagnant pool, in a
mid-summer's day, you may see the wiggle
tails become perfectly developed mosquitoes,
and they will rise from the surface of the
water, and fly.into your face and sting you.
What it is necessary to know at this day is

exterminator of that infernal pest and distur

MossEs, lichens, and insects, which are
prejudicial to fruit trees, may be destroyed
by a simple solution of quick-lime, any time
between the fall and opening of the leaf, ap
plied with a watering-pot, or gardener's
syringe. It does its office, and withal pro.
motes the growth of the tree.
DREssING WoUND.-Nine times out of
ten, a wound will heal quicker if done up
in its own blood, than any other way. As
for a burn, whatever will exclude the air the
quickest, is best. Cotton will. do this: so
will oiled silk, if stuck down at the edge by
any kind of sticking-salve. Put. nothing on
a burn to heal it. Nature, will soon do that
when the air is excluded, and the pain will
almost immediately cease.
SEOTS made by black writing.ink, on the
pages of a book, may be removed by wash
ing them with a solution of oxalic-acid in
water. The spots must be afterwards washed
with clear water.
To lAKE GooD CoRN-BREAD.-Take 7
pints corn-meal, 3 pints. wheat -flour, and
mix them well together ; then 6 eggs, well
broken, ~2 cups melted butter, and a little
salt and sugar to suit the taste. Put this
mass together, and mix with milk to make
a batter about the consistency .or stiffness of
paste prepared for drop-cake. Then dissolve
three teaspoons-full of cream of tartar,. and
the same of soda-; pour it upon, the mass,
stir it in thoroughly, and dip it-at once into
pans, and bake in a hot oven.
ANOTHER GOOD RECIPE FOR - MAKING
CORN BREAD.-Take 1 quart of milk, 3
eggs, beaten, butter half the size of an egg;
cream tartar, 1 teaspoonfull-salt and sweet.
en to your taste. To this add corn-meal to
make a paste about the consistency'of grid

Black Ink Improved.-To a pint of com
mon black ink add one drachm of impure
carbonate of potassa, .1ind in a few minutes
it will be a jet black. Be careful that the
ink does not ruti over, during the eflerve
scence caused by the potassa.
Jumbles.-Take flour,. 1J pound ; sugar,
1 pound ; butter, I pound ; four yolks and
two whites of eggs; rose-water, one wine.
glassful. Roll thin with fine powdered su
gar, and bake on tins.
Fly in Sheep.-Make a strong decoction
from the leaves of tobacco, or from chewing
tobacco, and apply wvith a small squirt, or
syringe, repeated several times during the
Grubs in Horses.-Take 1 pint strong
vinegar, 2 ounce chalk in powder, stir it
well and drench the animal.
Gapes in Chickens.-May be easily eured
by giving them small crums of dough im
pregnated with a little soft soap; once 01
twice is sufficient.
To write on Silver swt a Black which
will never go of.-Take burnt lead and pul
verize it. Incorporate it next with sulphui
and vinegar, to the consistency of a paint
lg colour, and write with it on any silvei
plate. Let it dry, then present it to the fire
so as to heat the work a little, and it is fin.
Ginger beer.-One pint of molassess and
twvo spoonsful of ginger put into a pail to be
half filled with boiling water ; wvhen well
stirred together, fill the pail with cold water,
leaving room for one pint of yeast, whieli
must not be put in antil lukewarm. Place ii
on a warm hearth for tho night, and bottle ii
it in the morning.

my knee to my 'foot, and discharged a great deal of oflen
slre matter. .My groin also broke out in large biles, which.
dscharged much ofensive matter, -and at the samie time.
my left band broke out In large runningasores nearly to my
elbow. The misery that I have angered for the last tw~o
years I cannot describe to you. I was in such agony that

GEORGIA SARSAPARILLA I
A PURE & UNADULTERATED ARTICLE,
FOR DISEASES OF THE LIVER,
AU 20 N-fl 2i3 N1U3.
T HIS SARSAPARILLA is made of the Sarsa
parilla which grows in the SouthernStates and
nothing else. It has the natural Sarsaparilla-taste.
Its effect upon the system in all cases in which Sar
saparilla is indicated is wonderful. It is a great
safeguard against diseases arising from a torpidstate
of the Liver, or impure state of the Blood.
Generally, it acts upon the Bowels as a mild par
gative or laxative. it not only mildly moves the
Bowels, but gives-tono to the system by restoring it
healthy action in the Liver, and by freeing the.blcod
from its impurities.
For children it is a great preventive of worms
and. supereedes the- necessity of giving them so.
much worm medicine; at the same time it improves
their general health.
A better and more useful medicine eannot be in
troduced into Edgefield District', either for profes
sional or family use, than the Georgia Sarsappr Ila.
