A corresponde::t of the Albany
We frequently meet wig recipes
in poultry books and .ers to
cure this unsightly disorder. The
majority of them are heartless
and cruel in the extreme. The
birds thus afflicted are in nearly
every case out of order and saf
fering from disease. They are
thin in flesh, with poor appetites,
and generally prefer to roost a
good, portion of the time. One
recipe recommends kerosene oil as
a cure. Now this is the very
worst.remedy that can be applied.
Better cut the bird's head off in
the commencement, and relieve
much misery that will surely fol
low on application of this danger
ous remedy-poison it might be
called. It removes all the skin
from the leg, and renders the ten
dons and sinews extremely s )re.
In this case the remedy is far
worse than the disease. The first
thing to do is to one up the sys
tem. The bird perhaps is afflicted
with vermin on the body, and it
as i be strange if this was not
the case. The application of
grease of any kind to a fowl for
vermm is cruel, especially if the
-ir-is complaining a little. It
causes the feathers to be wet, and
consequently heavy, and to stick
close to the body. Besides, a wet
ting of grease is apt to give the
bird cold. Instead, a gentle bath
of finely sifted wood ashes is to be
preferred, which acts as a stimu
lant; and causes many of the ver
min to let go their hold and drop
All sick birds should be moved
slowly and handled carefully. Give
soft food of some description that
will tempt the appetite, and bathe
the legs with a pretty strong de
coction of carbolic soap, afterward
applying a thin coating of oint
- mer.t, or sweet oil, being careful
not to rumple or soil the feathers.
Fowls are chary of their feathers
and dislike wet or grease en them.
If the bird can be coaxed to eat of
ten, a recovery is certain. When
a hen desires to set, it is the great
est benefit to allow her to brood the
usual period, and then afterward
run with the chicks.
The American Garden notices a
new Japanese radish, called the
Dalcon-a plant cultivated in all
parts of Japan, as having been
sent out by Mr. Lili, of Lyons,
France. Its roots often reach
nearly one yard in length and
one foot in diameter. The color
is milky white, tinged with yello w.
Its very thin skin is easily re
moved, and the compact, juicy
flesh has the delicate flavor of our
best small radishes. M. Jean Sis
ey, also of Lyons, speaks of ano
ther variety called the Satsuma
rdish, not yet introduced, in
Japan they are prepared for the
table in various ways-baked,
sliced very thin, in salads or pre
served in salt.
Where a horse is "over on the
knee," or rather, knee sprung, no
remedy is so good as proper shoe
ing. Ifave the heels of the shoes
thinner than the toes, but let them
slope gently and gradually. Do
not at first make the change in
the thickness very sudden, but
keep oni increasing it for a few
shoeings. The horse will begin
to lower his heel by this treat
ment, and the knees will straight
en, if they are at all curable. Flan
nel bandages are no good.
If hens have the detestable hab
it-for it is that and nothing
more-of feather eating, you have
only to catch them, and with a
knife scrape the sharp edge of the
inside of their bills, so as to leave
them bluint, and you will enjoy the
fun of seeing the fowls grab at a
feather and have it slip out of
their mouth without pulling it
from the victim.-Goldenl Rule.

ed by a vacation of E; weeks. New pupils
can be classitied as well one session as the
other. This plan has great advantages, too
numerous for our space.

The Commissioner of Agriculture, in his
report for the year 1875, speaks as follows:
"There can be 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. 1-ow much more
in this country, where there are no laws on
the subject, and no officer to carefully ana
lyze the 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 the trade. This is perfectly infamous.
Cocculus indicus, (fish-'aerry,) nux vomica,
(dog-buttOn, from which strychnine is ob
tained,) are some of the delectabe substances
found in beer! These are potent poisons,
and the brewer found 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
delr in drugs, or chemist, or any other
person, shall sell or deliver to any licensed
brewer, dealer in.or retailer of heer, 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
Imade; or any material or preparation other
Ithan unground brown malt, for the darken
Iing the color of worts beer, or any molasses,
vitriol, honey, quassia, coccolus indicus,
1grains of paradise, Guinea pepper, or opium,
oran 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 be seized by any officer of
excise, 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
public are ready to admit the immaculate
purity and innocence of American brewers,
the must be content, while drinking their
beer, to cherish the belief that they are at the
same time guzzling some narcotic poison or
damaging mnedici::e. In view of the unpre
cedented growth of the barley crop; of the
great increase of the number of malsters and
brewers; of the v~ast unknown quantities of
beer that are drunk in every city and almost
every town on the continent, it is the dictate
of sound wisdom that thbe attention of legis
lators should be called to the subject of the
adulteration of our malt liquors, and severe
nenalties should be inflicted as a preventive."
