Thq following is tho course taken, .with
my mare, successfully, at tho Instanco of a
man who had riccn employed during the
war in tho government hospital for horses,
nnd 'who had, hosald, never seen it fail
when thoroughly tried. The mare was
placed in a warm but well ventilated stable;
,wh fed with warm well meshes of grain,
anU was dally fumigated for three days.
She began to be better, to gain strength, to

For some two months she was under the

la one fault among farmers which .should
be reproved In strong terras. It is laying
outmoro work than, can bo done by the
force on the fiirm timely and properly. If
work cannotbo done as it should be, much
better not meddle with it at all. This fault
js the most observable in putting in tha
rops of the season ; Cnr wine cultivated
plants will not mature unless the seeds are
hown or plajitcd iu the ground at a partic
ular time, and borne farmers, in excuse for
their negligence, make an assumed trust In
Provldcueo for their tardlnet-s iu being
weeks behind the proper time in getting in
-tho seed. Indian corn may serve as an ex
ample of a erop not being put in at the
proper scjison, as well as oats, wheat and
other crops, If the sowing of tlicm is de
layed beyond the proper time, the grain
will prryye light, and the danger from
blight or rust greatly increased. Farm
work cannot go on successfully, unless the
farmer gives it his personal supervision,
awl as a rule in country parlance, will say
to his workmen, "come boys," instead of
"po boyii!" or follow sage Renny's maxim
of poor Richard that "Jle who by the plow
would thrive, mutt cither hold or drive."
Workmen may bo good and faithful, but
they feldom enter into all the plans of tho
farmer, and he mut be the directing head
himself or much effort will be misspent,
there should be no hap-h u.ard work on a
farm. Every moment should be tho re
sult of rcllcctingand well matured arrange
ment; directed to a certain and definite
end. If this were so, there would be fewer
failures in farming, which arc generally
the1 result of bad calculation and poor man
agement. A Case of Hydrophobia In Ilrookljn, '. Y.
The passengers iu the gentlemen's cabin
of a Fulton ferry-boat, on tho passage to
'Brooklyn, about hair-past live o'clock
Thursday afternoon, were surprised at the
antics of a handsome and well-dressed boy
of about thirteen or fourteen, who had been
noticed for some time looking with dread
and horror at the water through the cabin
windows. But when he suddenly howled
like a dog an inkling of tho terrible truth
came over them aim one gentleman called
aloud, "gentlemen, that boy's got hydro--phobia."
Two stout men seated near the
lad had presence of mind enough to seize
him instantly and keep him in his seat,
whilst the rest of tho passengers gathered
round in dumb pity at tho horrible fate
threatening the little victim. On the ar
rival of the boat in Fulton ferry slip on the
Brookyn side, two stalwart policemen ap
peared and took the boy to the station
house in York street.
On tho way up Fulton street and out
York a large growtl followed, the 6111cers,
ana their stricken little prisoner. The oiii
ccrs held him tightly by his wrists and
kept one thumb caeh pressed against his
checks to prevent his biting them, while a
third ofllcer cleared the sidewalk of the
gaping and pitying throng. Tho little fel
low's eyes wero blood shot and his face red
and flushed with agony and exhaustion.
At every three or four paces he would howl
or bark and attempt to leap forward llko a
dog, or ho would try to snap at the police
men who had him in charge. At the sta
tion house all persons wrec excluded, but
the curious throng remained around the
dens for some time. The oflicers wero un
able to find out the boy's name or residence
or any further facts connected with him.

fellow-citizen. Dr. h. H. Tucker, who
resides near Embreovllle. on Nola Chucky

It appears that whilst Mrs. T. was away
from her house for a few minutes, attend

little girl, just beglnlng to walk, in charge
of another little daughter but a few years
her senior. Tho little one, from some
cause, accidentally fell into a hot bed of
live coals, roasting her fectand part of her
stomach in a most horrid manner ! and
thus lay helpless, until her screams brought
to her assistance her distressed mother.
The llttleslstcr became so much frightened
that she could not give tho alarm in time
to fcave tho unfortunate little sufferer.
We learn form our informant that not
