A PARODY FOR THE SEASON.
Three TTOmcn' went -waddling into the surf.
Out into the surf at Xewport town; t
Each wore a bath suit of the Tery best.
Costing as mocn as a wedding gown.
For men must work and women mnst late,
And what men earn their wire's don't safe,
Though husbands they be moaning.
Three brokers np at three high desks.
And balanced their books as the sun went
Each -posing" o'er ledgers that wouldn't
Each wrapped in a study disgustingly
For men must sweat and wontn keep cool.
And women will erer be fashion's fool.
Though husbands they he moaning.
Three names are struck from the Gold Board's
Three broker's sign-boards are taken
Three men are busy "seaing their friends,"
Borrowing money to get out of town.
For men must break if women must waste.
Audit costs a deal to be "people of taste,"
feo good-bye to the fools and their moaning.
Farm and Household.
The farmer who keeps reading
when he ought to be outar, work,
will not. p-et his vrork done at the
right time, and so be a loser in
that way, -while he who never
reads at all, but works on as if he
needed no agricultural informa
tion from any one, will be pretty
Riiro in make serious mistake in
his work, whatever it be, and so
be loser in that way. The wisest
and best way, uiereiore, ior every
fnrmpr. is to rend and studv aifli-

to do it, especially during our long
winter evenings, the farmer's sea

and as a general thing, success-.
fully, than he who never reaus
to find ont new and improved
ways of doing things that will les
son his labors, and at the same
ttmft imnrnve his land and in
crease the products of his various
crops. A little reflection will
satisfy every man that this is true.
-So let us read and encourage
whatever can improve our agri
Corn Meal Bread.
A few years ago a. corn
exhibition was held in the city of
New 1'ork, under the supervision
of Orange Judd, when a premium
often dollars was awarded for
the boat corn bread. Tho follow.
ine is the recipe: Take two quarts
of corn meal, with about a pint of
thin bread sponge, and water
enough to wet it; mix in one half
pint of wheat flour and a tabie
spoonful oi salt; let it rise, and
then knead it well the second
time; bake one hour and a hlf.
To Keep Clear of Bed Bugs.
Take the whites of four eggs and
ten cents' worth of quicksilver;
put them in a bowl and beat them
to perfect froth. Take a feather
and dip into this preparation, and
apply to every part of your bed
stead where bugs conceal them
selves; do this once a year and
you will never see a bed bug m
. A correspondent of the Rural
JVew Yorker says: The way I keep
my fowls in health, I clean out
the house once a week; put wood
ashes under the roosts; have iron
basins for them to drink from;
whitewash inside of hen house
with hot lime; put a little kero-
sene oil on the roosts once a
month. The main food is oats and
cake of scraps to pick on. I nev
er feed but once a day-at noon,
or when I shut them up at four
or five in the afternoon. When
they run out, then give them all
they will eat. In my experience
there is no easier way to get dis
eased fowls than to keep them
stuffed; it makes them lazy, and
they won't work as much as they
ought to keep in a healthy con
dition. When fowls begin to droop
I give three large pills of com
mon hard yellow soap; it is the
best thing to cleanse a fowl I
know of. 1 follow it lor three
days; give them nothing to eat,
and plenty of pure water to dnnk.
In desperate cases give a half tea
spoonlul ot tincture ot lobelia.
Cure for Corns.
The following recipe is vouched
for in an exchange as a sure cure
Put the feet for half an hour,
two or three successive nights,
in strong solution of soda. The al
kali dissolves the endurated cu
ticle, and the corns fall out spon
taneously, leaving a small cav
ity, which soon fills.
Another writer says:
We know the above remedy
for corns to be effectual. We
have tried it, and found it acts
Mke magic. But we do not think
a strong solution is neccessary.
We know a Inend who tried the
remedy on our recommendation,
but he made the solution so strong
that with the corns, it took part
oi the skm on the loot, iromone
to two spoonsful of soda in a small
foot tub of hot water is sufficient
to remove the corns by letting
the afflicted member remain in
it ten or fifteen minutes.
Bolled Indian Pudding.
one of sour milk, a
teacupiui oi molasses, two table
spoonsful of butter or lard, one
teaspoonful of soda, one-half r.vm
of chopped raisins, or any kind of
iruib ; sur in corn meal as thick
as can be stirred. Boil two hours
in a tin pudding dish, with a lid
to shut tight, leaving room to rise.
Serve with sugar and cream, fla
vored witli lemon or vanilla, or
sweet sauce or syrup.
Apples on Grape Vines.
We read, a few days ago, of a
man wno nad been shown a
couple of apples, perfectly formed
that were growing upon a grape
vine. The apples were about;the
size of walnuts. What next shall
we hear of? Shall we gather figs

Substitutes for Preserves.
A Indv writer in an exchange
communicates the following bit
of information, obtained where
aha "tnnlr tea last:5'
A dish I took toT)e preserves
was passed, which, upon tasting,
I was surprised to learn coniainea

chief recommendations, for un

to do, it is emphatically .a'tip-top

all that sort oi tning. lis pre
nnrntinn is as follows : Moder
ately boil a pint oi moiasses
from five to twenty- minutes, ac

continue to boil a few minutes
longer, then season with nut

During the fall, after the pres
sure of the ordinary work 'ib over,
and even during open winters,
much may be done where the ex-
penstrof thorough-drainago could
not be afforded in opening ditches
and other water courses througn
the farm. Dead furrows may be
opened, and ditches cut where
needed. Water is the life of
plants as well as animals; but
the generality of plants, like ani
mals, do not like to be continu
ally soaked in it Besides: the
opening of ditches will often en
able you to get on to your fall
ploughing a week sooner in the
spring than otherwise. "Carriers,"
or shallow water-ways, may be
economically made with an up
right scraper and steady team
the implement so universally
used for making roads. Where
the ditches are wanted deeper,
they may be finished by hand
A system of thorough drainage
would double the average produc
tion of farms not naturally or
otherwise drained. How essen
tial, therefore, that we attend to
the surface drainage! A little
observation in the autumn, when
the fields are clean, will give you
a just idea of where the drains are
to be placed, and this year is the
time to do it, lor the next season
may be as wet as this one has been
Keeping Grapes Under Ground.
Many years ago, while in the
nursery business, a customer
wanted some vines of me, and
while they were being dug up,
he asked me if I had kept my
grapes over winter. This being
in March, of course he received a
negative reply. "Well," says he,
"when I come next week for trees,
I will bring you some along."
The thing seemed to me but a
joke at the time, but of course I
thanked him for the kind offer.
True to his promise, when he
came a week or ten days there
alter, he brought me some.
Not a few berries as might have
been expected, but at least five
pounds. They were Isabellas
and-Catawbas, perfectly plump
sweet and fresh, although most
of the bemes had dropped from
their stems. With the exception
of a very slight earthy taste, they
were certainly excellent.
The question, of course, was
asked; how to keep them thus,
The reply was, that in the fall,
as late as the cold will admit,
they were gathered in a clear
day, when perfectly dry; a box
about eight inches deep was
taken, a layer of green leaves
was taken from the vines and
laid on the bottom: on these
a layer of grapes, then a layer of
leaves again, until the box was
full, finishing off with a layer of
leaves. Jfut the lid on tight,
and bury deep enough to escape
the frosts of winter. Of course
it must be where water cannot
settle into the box.
The stems of these grapes were
quite fresh when given to me.
The man told me his father-in-
law had kept them thusforyears.
Why I never tried it is a mystery
to me, but if spared until fall, will
do so I think. Cor. of Grape
When board fences become
old, and the boards begin to come
off, nail upright facing strips upon
them against each post, and the
boards will be held to their place,
and the fence will stand several
years longer. Always set a post
fence over a ditch, or near a good
drainage, and the post will al
ways remain dry, and will last
many years longer than those
standing in wet sub soil.

AVTipii the senior Jonath
Tnimlill was Governor of Connect
icut, a gentleman called at his

house, requesting to see nis rcet

"How many of you boys ever
went fishing?" asked the minister.
Instantly fifty boys' eyes spar
kled, and their hands were raised

for pickerel?" continued the nun

minister knew, had nearly every

"Did you ever have any trouble
in getting the pickerel to bite?"
asked the minister.
"Yes, Sir!" cried the boys.
"So have I," he replied. '-I
have fished for pickerel a great
many times: olten in a certain
pond behind my father's house,
which was very clear and smooth,
and covered with water-lillies.
These lillies were very beautiful,
lying with their pure white petals
and golden centers on their float
ing leaves; but I did not like to
see them, for this reason: when I
trailed my line with a fat frog or a
nice minnow to it, if 1 saw a pick
erel swim round and round, look
ing at it, and working his mouth
and gills, I knew that pretty soon
he would jump up and snap at
the tempting bait, and then lhad
him. If he once began to look I
was sure of him; but if instead he
swam off under a lilly-pad, as
many fish did, I knew I had lost
him, and there was no use skim
ming and dancing my line to that
fish any longer.
"Now, boys, I want to tell you
when you see something you
wish for, whicli isn't yours; or
when you leel like saying a bad
word, or going where you know
you ought'nt to go, do not stop
to look at it or think about it,

Ayer's Cathartic Pills,
For all tho purposes of a Laxativo
Perhaps no one medi

required by every
body as a cathartic,
nor was erer any be

obTlous reason U,
that It is a more relia

fectual remedy than any other. Ttioae who haro
tried it, know that it cured them: ttoae who hava

thousands of certificates of their remarkable cures
of the following complaints, but such cures are
known in every neighborhood, and we need not

deleterious drag, they may be taken with safety
by anybody. Their sugar-coating preserves them
ever fresh, and makes them pleasant to take, whilo
being purely vegetable, no harm can arise from,
their use in any quantity.
