THE STOCK LAW IN NORTH
The Charlotte Observer recently
contained a series of interrogatories
in regard to the operations of the
stock law in Mecklenburg county,
from H. A. Gaillard, Esq., of
Fairfield, who desired to procure
the views of those familiar with
the practical working and popu
larity of the stock law in that re
gion. The questions are answered
in the order propounded:
1. The new law in Mecklenburg
is increasing the number and im
proviug the quality of the stock.
2. The trouble and expense of
keeping stock through the winter
is increased, but the profits are
more largely increased.
3. Farm tenants have no trouble
in obtaining pastures. Laborers
living in the city and in no wise
connected with farming, have no
pastures, but have the benefit of
public pastures, at low figures.
Those of them who have good cows
find them as under the old law,
profitable. They are in many in
stances furnished pasturage free of
4. The adoption of the law by a
single township pr>duces no com
plication or confusion ; but its
adoption by several townships, or
a county increases its advantages
and popularity, and dimmnishes the
expense of fencing.
5. The same provision existed
with us, in regard to fencing in
such townships as adopted the law.
There was but little troiuhle in
waking contracts, for the building
of such fence, with either those
favoring or opposed to the. law.
The cost, including gates across
the highways, should not exceed
$100 per mile, though with us in
some cases. it has exceeded that
amount. Contracts were generally
taken by those living upon the pro
posed line of fence at $1 per 100
for old rails, $1.50 for ncw, $3 to
$5 for gates. Raising the money
to pay for the fencing has in some
instances been easy, in others diffi
The adoption of the law has had
the effect of advancing the interest
of the whole people ; has imbued
the farmers with a progressing
spirit of improvement ; makes the
cultivation of cottor.less expensive,
which will en-able the planter to
pay larger wages to laborers ; has
almost entirely relieved the tenant
from the burden of fencing ; has
made the raising of hogs, cattle
and sheep profitable ; has learned
men to regard the lives 'and pro
perty of their fellow-men, and
thereby advance the cause of civili
zation. It has made men more
peaceable and better neighbors,
and has brought order out of chaos.
After this, the first year, it will
enable the farmers of Mecklenburg
to improve their lands to greater
fertility, by making compost and
ploughing more deeply, which in
a few years would conduce to their
leisure and pleasure. In conclu
sion, the stock law is giving grea ter
satisfaction, to both whites and
blacks, than its most earnest advo
cates had predicted.
Mecklenburg hopes that the peo
ple of South Carolina may obtain
the same benefits from its adop
SHELTER.-It is absolutely ne
cessary that all animals should be
ell sheltered from damp and cold.
The reason why pigs or other ani
mals do not fatten so readily

used in keeping up the vital heat,
LEMON PIE.---Ingredients: Juice
of two lemons, one cup of sugar,
butter size of a small egg, one cup
of hot water, one tablespoonful of
corn starch dissolved in a very lit.
t!e cold water, two eggs. Place
in a small porcelain saucepan the
butter, sugar. juice of the lemons
(which must be strained to ex
clude the seeds), and the cup of
boiling water; as soon as this boils
stir in the corn starch ; let it boil
two minutes, stirring corwtantly ;
remove from the fire and when
partly cooled add the beaten yolks
of two eggs ; line one large or two
small dishes with a rather rich
paste and fill two-thirds fill with
the mixIture. When the crust is
baked remove from t he oven and
cover with a meringue made with
the whites of two eggs and two
tablespoonfuls of' powdered sugar.
Set back into the oven until slight
Iy browned. Although there are
so many recipes for lemon pie we
would field feel no hesitation in
presenting this because experience
has proved its excellence. If you
find it not quite sweet enough add
a little more sugar, but the pie is
better if left quite tart. There is
a great difference in the size of
lemons; it will make your pie
richer, however, to use plenty of
lemon and sweeten accordingly.
Orange pie is even more delicious
made in the same manner. Use
the juice of four oranges and half
a lemon: sweeten to taste, and
use only half a cup of hot water,
as the juice of the oranges will
nearly fill a cup
HOUSE PLANTS.-The essentials
of success in house plant culture
are suitable soil, air, light, moder
ate and regular heat, a moist at
mosphere, regular and moderate
watering and freedom from dust
and foul gas. Most of our plants
are injured by too much heat. For
a g eneral collection of house plants
it is not best to allow the ther
mometer to be above 70, and if
th ey could be kept in a room whbere
the thermometer would usually
not range much above 65 it w ould
be the better. In the night time
50 is high enough. Give a little
fresh air every fine day and all the
sunlight attainable. Plants, how
ever, will suffer from a current
of cold air just as their owner
would, and too cold a draught
must be guarded against. Clean
liness is as necessary to the health
of plants as to that of animals,
and it is therefore necessary to
secure them from dust as muc.h as
possible and also to cleanse the
plants frequently by syringing
or washing. Even here a little
caution is necessary, for while the
smooth-leaved plants are benefited
not only by sho sering, but even
by washing the leaves with a cloth
or sponge, the rough-leaved plants,
like the begonia rex, do not like
to have the surface of their leaves

The Commissioner of Agriculture, in his
report for the year 1875, speaks as follows:
"There can oe no doubt of the general
adulteration of all malt liquors. In England
and other countries, where heavy penalties
are imposed, and an increasing vigilance
practiced to detect and punish such frauds,
by a system of inspection of all malt liquors
manufactured before exposed to sale, the
practice is very common. Hlow much more
in this country, where there are no laws on
the subject, and no officer to carefully ana
lyze tbe products of the brewery? Some
years ago, Professor Mapes, of New York,
analyzed the beer from a dozen different
breweries, and all were found adulterated
with noxious substances. It is said that the
sale of drugs to brewers is a profitable part
of tbe trade. This is perfectly infamous.
Cocculus indicus, (fish-berry,) mix vomica,
(dog-button, from which strychnine is ob
tained,) are some of the delectable substances
found in beer! These are potent poisons,
and the brewer fousnd using them should be
droned at once in one of his own vats.
The British Parliament passed a law to pre
vent this nefarious business. The following
is an extract: 'No druggist, vender of or .
dealer in drugs, or chemist, or any other
person, shall sell or deliver to any licensed
brewer, dealer in or retailer of beer, knowing
them to be such, or shall sell or deliver to
any person on account of,or in trust for, any
such brewer, dealer or retailer, any liquor
called by the name of or sold for coloring,
from whatever material the same may be
made; or any material or preparation other
than ungrounid brown malt, for the darken
ing the color of worts beer, or any molasses,
vitriol, honey, quassia, coccolus indicus,
grans of paradise, Guinea pepper, or opium,
or any extract or preparation of molasses, or
any article or preparation to be used in worts
beer for or as a substitute for mndlPor hops;
and if any druggist shall offend in any of these
particulars, such preparati6n, &c., shall be
forfeited, and may be seized by any officer of
excise, arid the person so offending shall for
feit five hundred pounds.'
"Uuder this law, very many druggists and
brewers wvere brought to grief, and yet the
practice continues. Unless the American
nublic are ready to admit the immaculate
purity and innocence of American brewers,
they must be content, while drinking their
beer, to cherish the belief that they are at the.
same time guzzling some narcotic poison or
daaging medicine. In view of the unpre
cedented growth of the barley crop; of the
great increase of the number of malsters and
brewers; of the vast unknown quantities of
bee~ that are drunk in every city and almost
every town on the continent, it is the dictate
of sound wisdom that the attention of legis
lators should be called to the subject of the
adulteration of our malt liquors, and severe
penalties should be inflicted as a preventive."

EXTRACT FROM PREFACE TO THE FOUR.
"The last edition of the United States Dis
pensatory was published in 1870. Since that
time not only has the growth of pharmnaco
logical science been very great, but there
has also been promulgated a new edition of
the United States Pharmamopoia and a sup
plement to the British Standard. The .addi
ions and alterations which have thus been
necessitated in the first and second por
ions of the present volume are numerous
"The advance of our knowledge of extra
oficinal -rugs has been even more exten
sive, requiring the addition to the third part
of the Dispensatory of accounts of no less
than ninety-eight newv substances. and, as
in the eases of Propylamiia, Nitrite of Amyl,
etc., a complete re-writing of many of thle
old articles. The additions of course vary
in importance, but, many of them are be.
lieved to be of decided value.
"No care or labor has been spared to yen
ler the present edition equal in accuracy
and in completenesS to its predlecessors.
reat pains have been taken to omit super
luous matter.and to condense the text; but
the additions have been so numerous that
the work has been augmented by about
seventy pages. This increase is of course
to be deprecated ; but without it one of the
chief values of the book would have been
impaired, and it has seemed better to have
few pages more Of print than not to have
a complete representation of the pharma
ological science of the day."

For Fever and Ague, Intermittent
Fever, Chill Fever, Remittent Fever,
Dumb Ague, Periodical or Bilious Fever,
&c., and indeed all the affections which
arise from malarious, marsh, or mias
This is a compound remedy, prepared with
scientific skill from vegetable ingredients, which
rarely fails to cure the severest cases of Chills
and Fever and the concomitant disorders. Such
a remedy the necessities of the people in malari
ous districts demand. Its great superiority over
any other medicine yet discovered for the cure
of Intermittents is, that it contains no quinine or
mineral, and those who take it arc free from
danger of quinism or any injurious effects, and
are as healthy after using it as before. It has
been extensively employed during the last thirty
years in the treatment of these distressing dis
orders, and so unvarying has been its success
that it has gained the reputation of being infalli
ble. It can, be safely recommended as a sure
remedy and specific for the Fever and Ague of
the West, and the Chills and Fever of the
South, which, once brpken up by it, do not
return until the disease is again contracfed.
The great variety of disorders which arise
from the irritation of this poison, such as Neu
ralgia, Rheumatism, Gout, lieadache,
Blindness, Toothache, Earache, Ca..
tarrh, Asthma, Palpitation, Splenic
Aftfections, HysterIcs, Pain in the Bow
els, Colic, Paralysis, and derangement of
the Stomach, all of which become intermittent
or periodical, have no speedier remedy than
AYER's AcriE CCRE, which cures them all alike,
and protects the system from future attacks. As
a preventive, it is of immense service in those
communities where Fever and Ague prevails,
as it stays the development of the disease if taken
on the tirst app)roach of the prcmonitory symp
toms. Travellers and temporary residents are
thus enabled to defy these disorders, and few
will ever stuffer if they avail themselves cf the
protection this remedy afobrds.
For Liver Complaints, arising from
