"Raise your own wheat." Of course
it is a good thing to make your own
bread. Mr. J. A. C. Jones, of our town,
c??gli the prevailing epidemic of
"raise wheat," and last fall pro??e ed
to do so. We give bis experience in
his own language as near as possible :
?'I bought two bushels of wheat, for
which I paid $1.25 per bushel ; this is
$2.60 for the wheat. I paid a man $1
to sow and plow it in, $3.50; 50* to
harrow the land, $4; I paid $1 for
hauling wheat to thresher, and 50? for
hauling wheat home again, $5.50; I
paid 50* for carrying wheat to mill.
Six dollars, all told, is what it '-ost me
to make my wheat crop and get the
flour home. Results : I made twenty
nine shocks; wheat threshed out three
bushels and three pecks of clean wheat.
This wheat sent to mill gave me five
small bags of different grades, one of
first patent, one of second, one of mid
dlings, one of .shorts, and one of bran.
Pou Jones brought the five bags home
from the mill and emptied them all to
gether in a barrel, bag after bag, fine
flour, seconds, shorts, bran. At the
mill where I had my wheat ground I
could have bought wheat at $1 per
bushel." Raise wheat, make your own
flour and be happy.

Use of Salt.
The Augusta Chronicle learns
that C. Godfrey Gu napp], an
English scientist, has spent. 27
years in studying the effect of salt
upon the body and is about to
publish a book which he thinks
will be revolutionary. He attributes
diphtheria, apoplexy and various
other diseases to a deficiency of
common salt in the system.
We are inclined to think that
Proffessor Grumpel is on the
right line and if his book can be
obtained on this side of the water,
it should be widely rea. We can
not expertly speak as to the preven
tion of the diseases mentioned,
but he may be right. We do
know that, so far as our individual
experience is concerned, salt is at
once the cheapest and most
benignant preservators of health.
No headache or neuralgia or
congestion can get lodgment of any
duration when salt and water are
procurable before breakfast. Other
people may be differently consti
tuted. An old friend of ours, 80
years of age, a marvel of
body for his years, ascribed his
good condition to the judicious
U39 of salt. The Hindoos say that
their freedom from throat disease
comes from saline gargles daily.
A Hindoo mother teaches her in
fant this habit and sees that it is
practiced. Salt is one of the
greatest blesei. 3 when used with
freedom and discretiou. and
this was pointed out years ago ty

Don't expect local applications ol
soaps and salves to cure Eczema. They
reaoh only the surface, while the di
sease comes from within. Swift's

similar remedies, because it cures oases
