THE ECONOMY OF FAR3IERS.
Probably no class of people are
compelled to be more economical
than farmers ; but in the end they
enjoy life quite as well as many
other class of citizens. A mer
chant may dress better than a far
mer ; but could we read the anxi
eties of his mind-how he is to
support his family in style-how
he is to pay his notes at the bank
-how he is to collect doubtful
debts, and many other things-we
should decide that the farmer,
with his new suit of clothes once
in three years, and his plain style
of living, takes more real enjoy
ment of life than the merchant or
professional man does. But far
mers should live within their in
however small they should
in saving or in taking
ou have that most
-ome. Just think
of leaving a
sed to the
farmers to be
rain. It is the
branch of economy
ements well painted,
~ecover when not in use.
armer may be able to af
to be careless in this respect,
t not the farmer of moderate
means. Nor can farmers afford to
use the old style, cumbrous farm
tools that do poor work and re
quire much more time to do their
work than good implements do;
and here also is economy in buy
ing the best implements that exist,
because "time is money," to say
nothing of the superior manner in
which the best implements do their
work, by which crops are increase d.
But in all of your efforts to econo
mize, don't neglect to give your
children a good common education
see that they attend regularly, and
that they learn their lessons. No
farmer living can afford to rear a
family of children withouft a fair
school education. But one of the
best aids in giving children a gen
eral knowledge ot what exists in
the world arid what is transpiring
therein are the newspapers and
magazines of the day; and you
will find it.economy that pays well
to subscribe for them liberally, as
no farmer exists who has ever re
pented of laying before his chil
dren a generous supply of the
times.-New York WV orld.
HOGs WANT SULPHUR.-Whethi
er hogs require sulphur as an es
sential to tbeir health, or whether
it is sought by them as a condi
me:nt, may not be known for cr
tai::ty. But one thing is sure,
they devour it with greed when
ever it is to be found. It is for
this purpose, probably, that they
eat large quantities of soft coal,
which contains a large amount of
sulphur. Perhaps this is the most
economical method of supplying
hogs with sulphur during the wvin
ter, when they require a good deal
of carbon. But in the summer it
is better to feed it to them in sub
stances which contain less carboa
on account of their producing less
heat. Mustard is one of the best
things for this purpose, and sofne
of it should be sown in every pas
ture into which bogs are turned.
If hogs are kept in, or in small
yards, it is well to supply them
with the wild mustard that grows
in the fields or highways, or to
cultivate some of the better va
rieties for them. They will eat
it, leaves, flowers, seeds and stalks.
SowING FLOWER SEEDS.-SmallI
seeds, like the portulaca, should
be sown upon the surface and
gently pressed in with the hand,
a trowel or fiat stick. Upon larger
sceds, like the sweet alyssum, sift
a slight covering of earth. A good
rule for large seeds is "a depth
equal to twice their thickness."
Always sow seeds thinly, or the
seedlings will be elongated and
sickly. Zinnias, stocks, cobra
and dielisais have flat seeds, and
must be put in edgewise, or they
will be liable to rot. Most of the
hardy annuals are better if nlanted I

spelling. This system is developing new
advantages almost every day.
3. PRE3mIMs.-Every pupil whose two ses
sional reports average 75 or more is entitled
to a discount of 10 to 50 per cent. from her
next session's regular tuition.

The Commisraneflr of Agriculture, in his
reort for the ,ear 1875, speaks as follows:
'There ca be no doubt of the general
adulteraioz of all malt liquors. In England
and otherountries, wvhere heavy penalnies
are impsed, and an increasing vigilance
praceicd to detect and punish such frauds,
b a system of inspection of all malt liquors
irianufactured before exposed to sale, the
pracice is very common. How much more
in tiis country, where there are no laws on
the subject, and no officer to carefully ana
lv the products of the brewery ? Some
y~ears ago, Professor Mapes, of New York,
snalyzed the beer from a dozen different
rewries, and all were found adulterated
with noxious substances. It is said that the
sale of drugs to brewers is a profitable part
of the trade. This is perfectly infamous.
Cocculus indiens, (fish-berry,) nux vomica,
(dog-button, from which strychnine is ob
tained,) arc some of the delectabe substances
found in beer! The-e are potent poisons,
and the brewer found using them should be
dro,ned 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 uground brown malt, for the darken
iig the color of worts beer, or any molasses,
vitriol, honey, quassiaI, coccolus indicus,
grains 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 malt or hops;
and if any druggist shall offend in any of these
particulars, such preparation, &c., shall be
forfeited, and may he seized by any officer of
xcise, and the person so offending shall for
feit five hundred pounds.'
"Under this law, very many druggists and
brewers were brought to grief, and yet the
practice continues. Unless the American
ui arc ready to admit the immaculate
purity and innocence of American brewers,
the must be content, while drinking their
bee~r, to cherish the belief that tney are at the
same time guzzling some narcotic poison or
damaging medicine. In view of the unpre
cdetd growth of the b)arley crop; of the
great increase of the number of malsters and
brewers; of the vast unknown quantities of
beer that are drunk in every city and almost
every town on the continent, it is the dictate
offsoound 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."

HOPE FOR ALL!
Consusuption is generally supposed to be an
incur:ble di. ease. Why .' ecause medical
men. who of all others should have been the last
to eicourage .uch an un:philcso;hical and dan
gerous assumption. have insisted upon and pro
pagated it with a persistency which seems al
most incredible in the light of science ar.d of
truth. We used the term -dangero,sadvisedly,
for what can be mnore depre.sing and injurious
to the consumptive than brooding over the idea
-founded solely upon the fiat of his physician
that his malady is mortal, and that the utmost
that can be done ;r hin to render his exit
from this worlrd as easy as pvssible. Such mel
at:choly and hopeless reflection a% this belief en
genders among Cousnmptive patients, does as
rauch, if net inure. to hitten their departure for
the land of shado:s, as the ttlberc!es in their
lungs. Away with such a hopeless theory.
Ilapily the GiitT MASTKaS ON MEDIC1NE
have entered their protet ::gainst it and confuted
by the most 1.ositive testimo:iy the mnon-trous
fallacy. Dangerous as pulmonary phthi_is is,
its terrible ravanes may be stayed and the lungs
restored to a sound cmidition even after suppu
ration has taken piece. Every experienced sur
geen krows that post mortem examinations of
aged persons v.1io have died in the ordiasry
con rse of nature haye.rcpatedly disclosed the
tnces of pulmncary ulcers entirely cicatrized.
The argument. theretbre. against the p.,sibility
ollhealing a >ulnmnary abscess because the im
md iate seat. of the disease cannot be r.ached,
his not a leg to stand upon. Over fifty instances
d the di scoverv of cicatrized ulcers in the lungs
ive been recorded by the medical faculty of
".iris. and such eminent authorities as Revinus,
ilalphighi. Du Hseu and scores of others, French,
tnglish and German, might easily be cited to
irove their certain curability.
To treat any malady rationally its character
md morbid influence must be known. The dis"
icting knife has disclosed all the internal char
icteristics of consumption. We know that tu
aercles in the lungs vary in size from granules
smaller than a pin'a head to that of a large bean.
These develop into open ulcers technically
known as vomical which afterwards spread over
a surface several inches in diameter. Their sacs
are filled with a . ellow, greenish, grayish matter
generally very offensive. The membrane itself
is greatly inflamed, and the ends of the pulmona
ry artery and vein connecting with the diseased
parts are clogged with vitiated and purulent
mucus. Death must ensue either from suffoca
tion or hemorrhage if speedy relief is not obtain
ed. It is obvious that something is required
which will enable the sufferer to raise and eject
the poison rankling in his lung, and choking
the air passages. and which will also allay the
grievous irritation of the inflamed parts. No
preparation known to materia medica accom
plishes this double object so effectually and speed
ily as HOLLOW Y'S COUGH CUr.E AND LUNG
BALSAM. That incomparable remedy loosens
and liquifies the poisonous and foetid accumula
tions in the lungs and bronchis, subdues with
wonderful rapidity the inflammation of the dis
eased parts, and prevents the possibility of hem
orrhage. At the same time it tones and strength
ens the mu cies of the throat and enables them
to throw off the vitiated matter without strain
ing. The transcendent merit of HOLLOWAY'S
CoUGh CURE AND LUNG BALSAM is the thor
oughness with which it does its work. Its im
mense superiority to the multitude of officinal
and proprietarv mediciues, designed for a simi
lar purpose, which have preceded it, lies in the
fact that it Is an ABSOLUTE ERADICANT of pu!
monary and throat diseases, while they at the
best were merely palliations. It is not alone
that the preparation dislodges the pulmonic
virus, it possesses balsamic properties peculiarly
adapted to soothe the lacerated lung, while by
its tonic operations it greatly facilitates and has
tens the healing process. As a preventive HoL
LOWAY'S COUGH CUaE AND LUNG BALSAM is
equally efficacious. Coughs, especially the dry
hacking coughs which are so common, are terri
bly fruitful sources of consumption. The suf
ferer at first has a feeling of rawness in the
throat, tightness across the chest, then danger
ous inflammation sets in, which may give rise to
hemorrhage or the formation of vomical, if it is
not speedily checked and the cough loosened.
HOLLOWAY'S COUGa CURE AND LUNG BALSAM
accomplishes this with a degree of promptitude
and certaioty which astonishes the patient. No
type of throat, lung or bronchial disturbance
can resist its curative influence. It overcomes
the most obstinate forms of this class of disor
ders, and breaks up at once the most violent
paroxsms of coughing. All its ingredients are
purely vegetable. Some of them are culled from
sources entirely new to pharmacy, and all are
possessed of properties of marvelous remedial
eflicacy. I he unsolicited testimonials which its
proprietors have been constantly receiving since
its introduction to the public, from persons who
have experienced or witnessed its wonderfully
beneficial effects, fully justify the belief that it
must, ere long, become the STANDARD AMEIsn

This Sarsaparillais a combination of
drake,Yellow Dock-with the Iodides
of Potassium and Iron, and is the
most efficacious medicine yet known
for the diseases it is intended to cure.
Its ingredients are so skilfully
combined that the full alterative
effect of each is assured, and while
it is so mild as to be harmless even
to children, it is still so effectual as
to purge out from the system those
impurities and corruptions which
develop into loathsome disease.
The reputation it enjoys is derived
from its cures, and the confidence
which prominent physicians all over
the country repose in it proves their
experience of its usefulness.
Certificates attesting its virtues
have accumulated, and are con
stantly being received, and as many
of these cases are publicly known,
they furnish convincing evidence of
the superiority of this Sarsaparilla
over every other alterative medicine.
So generally is its superiority to any
other medicine known that we need
do no more than to assure the public
that the best qualities it has ever
possessed are strictly maintained.
