I.onrdiiis Farm llniitls.
Should the wives of well-to-do far
mers, who are possessed of houses,
lands, stocks, alive and dead, be com
pelled to run, manage, and do most of
the work in boarding-houses ana laun
dries for the accommodation of labor
ers? Our opinion is that they should
not. No such thing is expected of
the wires or the other employers, and
it should not be expected of the wives
of those farmers who have like means.
The pleasure and comfort of any home
is destroyed when it is converted into a
lodging and eating house for laboring
men. Especially is this the case when
the laundry is attached.
It would be better in every respect
to have arm hands live by themselves.
It would be much better for the fami
ly of the farmer, and generally more
pleasant for the hands themselves. At
present, in this country, only nnmar
ried men, as a rule, are employed to
work on a farm. In other kiuds of
business, it is found that married men
are the best employes, being more in
lined to be steady, industrious, and
less likelv to want to change places
They are also more likely te take an
interest Jn the business, whatever it is,
for the reason that they have increased
If' the j)lan was general here, as
abroad, of having farm hands live in
a cottage, rented at small cost, many
would be married and keep house,
while other laborers would board with
them. By allowing, as they do in oth
r countries, the occupant of every cot
tage to have a small lot of land for lib
own use, and an opportunity to keep a
cow, pig, and poultry, it is likely that
they could live 'more cheaply as well
as more nleasantlv than under the
present system. -As to the farmer's
family, the gain would be great in
every respect. Chicago Times.
A Home-Hade Clod Crusher.
Take three scantlings, two of them
four feet and the other five feet long;
all of them two by five inches. Bevel
the foremost ends like a sled-runner.
Now lay the two shortest down six
feet apart and the longest one in the
center between them, with the beveled
sides up. Have all the rear ends
even and your boards eight feet long
and ten inches wide, and one and
one-half inches thick. Nail on the
rear plank first by driving in two large
nails in each scantling; lap each one
and one-half inch. After you get
your shortest scantlings nearly cov
ered, turn it over and hitch your team
to the center scantling, which projects
one' foot before the others.
This is a good thing to pulverize the
ground, and the greatest thing to cov
prwith that I ever tried. You can
cover two rows at a time. Cor. Cvi
Soap Care Tor Hog Cholera.
A year ago I bought six hogs from a
drove of twenty that were dying with
cholera, and found, on driving them
home, that they were affected; they
vomited often. I put them with
twenty of my own raising, and boiled
some corn in weak lye from ashes, used
eoft soap in their slop from the kitchen
and I never lost one, while the last of
that drove I left died. I have one
now which took it a month ago so bad
it would eat nothing, it seemed blind
I cured it by using one dose of com
mon soap, made thin with water, pour
ing it down with a tin cup, by holding
the hoc on its back. Cor. New York

valuable to pay for preserving until

spoonful of saltpeter in a common pan
ful of warm (not hot) water, and sprin
kle the cabbage therewith on the first
appearance ot the worms. A wo or
three of these applications will suffice
for the season. The water, besides,
acts like a charm in promoting the
grothof the plant.
-CunR,vT Jam. Strip the currants
from the stalks, and put them into the
preserving-pan, with three-quarters of
a pound of sugar to each pound of
fruit; add the sugar after the fruit has
boiled a few minutes: boil together,
mashing the fruit with a wooden spoon,
and taking off all the scum; boil all
gently for half an hour. Then fill the

to every three pounds of gooseberries;
let them boil quickly together for near-
lv an hour, stirring carefully all the
time. Then add the sugar in the pro-
portion of thrcc-ouarters of a pound to
each pound of fruit, and boil for forty
minutes. Gooseberry jam takes a long
time to boil; if not well done it will
neither look nor keep will.
Grape Catsup. By following these
directions you will obtain an elegant
relish. Take five pounds of grapes,
boiled and cullendered, two and a
half pounds of sugar, one pint of vine-

brine. This will kedp pure butter

we know by experience.

Invert a common flower-pot over the

Tbe national feature of Tbe Aldine must b
taken in no narrow sense. True art is cosmo
politan. While The Aldine is a strictly Ameri
ran institution, it does set eenfine itself to tb
reproduction of native art. Its mission, is te
cultivate a broad and appreciative art taste, ono
that will discriminate on grounds of intrintio
merit. Thus, while pleadingbefore the patrons
of The Aldine, as a leading characteristic, the
productions of the most noted American artists,
attention will always be given to specimen
from foreign masters, giving subscribers all tho
pleasure and instruction- obtainable from homer
or foreign sources.
lhe artistic illustration of American scenery-
original with The Aldine is an important fea
ture, and its magnificent plates are of a sire
more appropriate to the satisfactory treatment
of details than can be afforded by any inferior
page. The judicious lnterspersionof landsnpe,
marine, figure and animal subjects, sustain an
unabated interest, impossible where the seop
of the work confines the artist too etosely to a
single style of subject. Tbe literature of The
Aldine is a light and graceful accompaniment,
worthy of the artistie features, with only such
technical disquisitions as do not interfere with,
the popular interest of the work.
