RHUBARB, OR PIE PL.NT.
HY WM. SUMNER, Pomaria.
The Rhubarb is a perennial, herbaceous
plant, with leaves larger than the burdock,
and can be raised with very little trouble,
if the ground is made rich. Two or three
stalks will afford the niaterials for a dozen
or iore pies. The seed ripens in July, and
should be sown early in the fill. They may
be readily transplanted in the fall or spring.
The pie plant is now found in most gardens,
but from neglect it is often grown badly.
It requires the richest soil, and to grow the
stems of sufficient size, the soil must be
made deep and rich with the best manure.
Its vast roots will penetrate into the mellow
loam, and send their runners in all directions,
as it is a iost voearious feeder. To have
stems of large size, from eighteen to twenty
inches in length and two inches or more in
diameter, it must be provided with the ne
cessary ingredients to subsist upon. It re
quires a noist soil, and will not grow to any
size unless such be provided. The follow
ing directions will insure its success in the
driest gardens. Plant the best variety-the
Victoria, or Downing's Collozs d, in a shady
situation and in a soil enriched as recom
2nended, then cover the earth about the roots
to the depth of two inches with straw, chips,
or other substance of a similar character.
Next procure an old barrel with both heads
out, and place it one foot from the plant on
end. Then fill it full of ianure, good and
strong from the stable, cowpen or hog yard,
so tightly trod together that it will take some
time for the water to drain through, but not
so close as to hold it. Each night pour into
this barrel a pail of water. The soapsuds
saved from washing would be better. Fol
low this up regularly during April, May and
June, and you will have no cause to coin
plain of slender stems. To have early leaf
stalks for pies, place the barrel with both
heads out over the plant, and pile a few'
bushels of manure around it. By keeping
the manure well moistened, the plant will
grow rapidly inside the barrel, and the stems
being protected will be beautifully blanched.
The following is the best recipe for making
rhubarb tarts: Take the young, green stalks
of the plant, and having peeled off the thin
skin, cut into small pieces about an inch
long, then put them into a sauce pan with a
plenty of brown sugar and its own juice,
cover it and let it stew slowly till it is soft
enough to mash to a marmalade. Then set
it away to cool. Have ready some fresh
baked shells; fill them with the stewed rhu
barb and grate white sugar over the top.
For covered pies, eut the rhubarb very small
and mix a plentiful supply of sugar, and put
it in raw. seasoii u h iutmeg, orange peel
to your taste. ike the pies about three
quarters of' an hour.-.i gricu'lturalist.
H1OW TO USE GUA10.
The allowing directions respecting the
use oft guo are from the London Mark
Lane Expre~ss. We are awvare that the first
rule giveni has been made the subject of'
doubt, but are still convinced that it holds
good in most case.
First.-Never mix it with anything ; all
limec, compost, ashes, and similar ingredients.
too often contain enough caustic alkali to
drive oil' the .amnmonical parts before the
soil can surround and absorb them. A vast
amount of mischief and loss often follows
this sad mistake. If applied alone, the soil
wvill best adapt it for plants.
Seconl.-Mix as much as possible with
the seed, not too deeply, but plow it in after
sowing it broadcast, unless it be for beans
or drilled and ridged crop, wvhen it may be
sown on tihe surface before the ridges are
T/, ird.-If applied as a top dressing, al
ways apply it, if possible. before rain, or'
when snow is on the ground ;and if on ara
ble land, harrow, hoe, or seutie, if possible.
immediately after the operation.
Four th.-The best mode: to apply it is by
water. A slight solution of' it is by far the
most powerful and speedy apaplication.
Fifth.-If sowed with drilled grain, or
indeed any seed whatever, it should never
come in contact. It is not a bad planr to
sow broadcast, after the corn drill, and thenm
harrow, as it is kept in the nearest proximi
ty to the seed, without comning in contact
Lastly.-Be sutre to get, if possible, the
genuine article ; cheap guano there is none.
The quantity of geniuinie guano per acre
used is from two to three hundred pounds.
The latter quantity when the land is defi
cient and requires speedy renovation.
BONES FOR FRUIT TREES.
A good deal is said of the value of bones.
and yet not one cultivator in ten thinks
enough of them to save them. Even the'
refuse bones of his own kitchen are quite
likely-thrown into the street. When bones
can Ibe had in the villages for a merely nom
inal sum, he does not think of purchasing
them. There is no better material for th('
border of fruit trees, grape-vines, anid the
small fruit-bearing shrubas; and everyv fruit
grower, that has not done planting, should
keepa a stock of old bonmes on hand, so that
every new border many be well furnished
wvith this planit food. For inmmediate effect
the bones should be dissolved in sulphuric
acid or ground into fine dust. Butt for the
larger fruits and vines, bones crushed with a
hammer will answer (juite as well. anad two
or three bushels miay be put in each border
for an applc or pear tree. The crushing of
the bones may be done under cover, and
muakes good work for rainy days. If the
trees are already planted, the crushed bones
may be dug in among the roots. If worked
into the soil of cultivated lands, or eveni
spread uaponm pastures, they will give a sure.
though a slow return. The eagerness with
which plants take up this kind of food nmay
be easily discovered by digging up bones
uinder trees and grape-vines, when it will be
seen that the roots hnave covered the bones
with a net work of fibres, and eve-n penetra
ted their substance. Save all the bones, and
buy) themn if you would hatve fine fruits and
take the premiumms.
A lRsemer'i Wonrur ONE Tuor'sAND Dol.
unsmc.-Take one pound of salsoda and half
a pound of' unslacked lime, put themi in a
gallon of waiter and boil twenty minutes;
let it stand till cool, then drain ofi, and put
it in a stone jug or jar. Soak your dirty
clothes over night, or until they are well
wet through, then wring them out and rub
on plenty of soap, and in one boiler of
clothes well covered over with water, add
one teaspoonful of the washing fluid. Boil
half an hour briskly, then wash theta tho
roughly through one suds, and rinse well
through waters, and your clothes will look
better than- the old way of washing A-ice
before boiling. This is anr invaluable receipt,
and I do want every poor tired woman to
try it. I think with a patenit wash tub to
do the little rubbing, the wash wvoman might
tuke the last novel and compose herself on
tke lone, and let the washing do itself.
The woman can keep a secret has known
this a year or two, but her husband told it
while on an electioneering tour. So says
the 0hio Cultivator.
IMPROVED WuEEL TIRES.-An improve
ient is chronicled in the arrangement of
tires for wheels, so that the wheels may run,
at different times, on hard and soft land, as
circumstances may require. To this end,
the tire for the wheel is rolled on its exteri
or surftee with a projecting longitudinal rib,
wiheh may be square or rounded, so that
when the wheel is on hard road or substance,
the tire would run on its longitudinal rib;
but when on soft land or substance, the rib
will penetrate, and the whole breadth of the
tire will rest on the land or surface. When
the wheels are passing over hard ground
they run on the ribs of the tire, and of course
there is less friction on the draft; and when
on soft land the tire will offer a broader
bearing surface, peculiarly suited for run.
ning on such land.
Piekled eggs are excellent eating, they
are prepared by first boiling hard, and then
divested of their shells, placed in earthen
jars, and scalded vinegar poured upon them,
seasoned with whole pepper, allspice ginger
and cloves. When the pickle is cold, the
jars are closed, and the eggs are in capital
eating order in a nionth after, and will keef
for a year or more. The farm house epi
cures hold this dish in high esteem.
OUR DAILY BREAD.
A beggar-boy stopped at a rich ian's door
"I am houbeless and friendless, and faint an6
Said the beggar-boy, as the tear-drop rolled
Down his thin cheek, blanched with want an
"Oh! give me a crust from your board to-day
To help the beagar-boy on his way!"
"Not a crust nor a crumb," the rich man said,
"Be off, and work for your daily bread !"
The rich man went to the parish church
His face grew grave as he trod the porch
And the thronging poor, the untaught mass,
Drew back to let the rich man pass.
The service began-the choral hymn
Arose, and swelled thro' the long aisles dim;
Then the rich man knelt, and the words he saiI
Were-" Give us this day our daily bread!"
TIE CHRISTIAN'S HOPE.
What a blessed thing is the Christian
Hope. It sheds hope on every afiliction.
lightens every sorrow, and adds brightnesS
to every joy. I[ow many care-worn we:iry
ones would have sunk into the depths of
despair, had it not been for tie blessed hope
which shone through every cloud, and whi.
pered of a heaven of rest and peace beyond
this vale of tears. When assailed by the
malicious tongue of slander, and pierced
to the heart by unkindiess, how snimothing
ly does thme thought comec over the mind.
Our Saviour sutfered all this, anid knows
how to feel for us; for he was tempted in
all points even as we are." 0! yes, prince.
less beyond hauman estimation in the hope
of the Christian which is founded on the
Rock of Ages. Surely no onie, who ever
tasted the joy (of such a hope, would ever
desire to turn back to thme pleasures of earth.
True, darkness and doubts will oftimnes ob
scure the light, but it is only for a time and
such seasons of gloom only serve to drawi
us more strongly towards our dear Iheaven.
How pleasant it is, when wearied with the
cares and exertions of the day,. to sit at its
close and feel that each hour and day, as it
passes, brings us nearer death, the happy
release fronm all earthly trials. Howv sweet
to feel, that soon we shall have done with
earth and its temptations, and have entered
into the paradise of God. There we shamll
spend a blessed and endless eternity with~
our dear Redeemer and all the sainits and
holy ones in heaven, where, freed from
weakness of the body, we ~shall ever be
singing praise to our God. Oh! joyful
thought, happy reality. Who would barter
such a hope as this for all that earth aflords 1
Sinner, be converted. Seek an interest in
Christ: give Him your heart, and all the
joys of heaven shall b.e thine. All things
earthly are at best but fleeting shadows.
There is nothing lastin g here; and how
miseralIe will be your fate, if you die while
out of Christ.
Then be wise. Make the Christian's
hope your own, and shouts' of joy shall re
bound through the high arches of the court
above, over your repentance.-Jewett.

THE PRINCETON PRESS.
IlE design of the inventor was to get up a
Press which would answer every requirement
of the offer made by George Bruce, of New York,
in 1851, viz: CHEAP, LIGHT, EASILY MAN
AGED, and capable of throwing off at least 500
sheets per hour.
This PRESS will throw off from 500 to 800
sheets per hour, doing the work equal to any Cylin
der Press. The bed stands about thirty inches
from the floor, and is the most convenient of all
Presses to make ready the form on. It is adapted
to jobbing or book work, as well as newspaper, and
will register as well as any other Cyinder Press.
It requires to work it, a man to turn the fly wheel,
and a boy to feed the sheets.
The Inking Apparatus is very complete, and
differs from the apparatus used in Cylinder Presses
generally, being more like that used in the Power
laten Presses. Two rollers pass over the form
twice to each impression, taking ink for each sheet.
A Press of this description for newspaper and
jobbing, bed 44 by 28J inches, with roller mould,
roller stocks, blanket, flying and registering appa
ratus, &c., complete, will be furnished for $500. If
intended for book work chiefly, an extra ink foua
tain will be furnished for $20.
The Press, fly wheel, &a., will weigh about 2000
pounds. The sides, &c., are iron. Length of frame,
seven feet ; height to front edge of feed-board, three
reet six inches. Any size made to order.
The following is a list of the sizes and prices, as
far as .stablished:
Bed 28 by 20 ...................$400
36 " 24 ................... 450
44" 28 ............ ..... 500
46 4 30 ................... 540
48 " 31 ........... ....... 580
50 "32 .................. 600
52 " 32 ................... 625
56 4 36 ................... 800
Boxing antd 'arthage, $13.
The beds will take chases their full breath, and
within two inches or the length.
TERMS.-One half cash; one half note, four
months, with approved security ; or 2j per cent.
discount for cash.
For more titan four years the inventor of the
above Press has been improving it, working it all
the while, and ascertaining with great cnre and
expense. the best anode of carrying out all the de
tai!s, anl lie now flatters himself he loas succeeded
in perfecting it. Within the past year important
improvements have been made.
No Press will leave his premises without being
thoroughly tested, and without it performs to the
entire satis'cction of the nrchaser.
