IIoh' I Jlnko Sort Soap.
I keep my nslics tlrj'i and when put in
the hopper preparatory to making soap, I
have from u-linlf to 1 peck of unslnckoil
Jiinoputin with tho nsliea. Uoforo put
ling the grease in, I swing tho kettle oil'
tho lire and let it hang n few moments. If
there is any potash in it, I take a shovel
and take it out. For if thcro is much pot
ash in, it will not mako good soap.
I pack tho ashes well, adding water
enough to dampen them. Then I put three
or four bucket1! of water on eacli day for
two or three days, until I think it suf
ficiently soaked. And lastly 1 pour on
boiling water to run the lyo off. As soon
n3 I havo enough run oil to commence
boiling I put my kettlo over tho lire, and
boll tho lye as fast as it will boll, still add
ing more lyo as it boils down. In this
way I continue for a whole day. lly even
ing it will probably bo sulllclently strong
to eat a feather in passing it three times
across tho liquid. I now put my grease in
(all I think it will eat), still boiling
as fast as T can without its run
ning over. If it eats tho grease all up I
add more. I now leavo my Kettle standing
over tho llro all night. In tho morning if
there are any scraps of grcaso that aro not
oaten up, I boil again for an hour or two,
and if they do notdissolveltako them out.
Then I tako out a few spoonfuls of the soap
and set it away a littlo while to cool.
"When cold, if tliero is no lyo under it and
it appears freo from grease, I set my kettle
oil, and hang another one to boilmoro lye.
Managing in this way. I generally can
mako from sixteen to eighteen gallons of
nico white soap in tw days, and often in
ono day and a night.
I think that by pursuing this plan or a
.-miliar one, any ono can mako a strong,
nice soap. A Parmer's Wife, in Cincinnati

Tho days are beginning to lengthen, and

bring out their apples and nuts, cider and

Corn and Wheat.
The St. Louis Democrat closes a cart
ful review of the corn and wheat market,
witn tiieso conclusions: I'lrst, mat we
have more wheat in the country now than
we had at this timo last year ; second, that
our corn crop is also mucn larger; nurd,
that Great Britain will buy com of us ad
libitum, and wheat when tho price suits
her; fourth that wheat will bo more or less
llrmlyheld in this country throughout the
winter; fifth, that corn will much more
largely cuter into home consumption as n
breadstuff; and sixth, that just upon the
eve or me wneai Harvest o' 1B73 it wnisuu
denly bo discovered thut wheat Is in exces
sive supply, and the attempt to rush It into
market may cause u decline as much too
Jow as the present price Is too high. It
will bowell forourgraln operators to Btudy
nil of these things.

An experienced farmer has found, by
experiment, that where he mulched his
Wheatland with vetch, he hud an increase
of crop of twelvo bushels per acre, and he
invariably found that land which had been
sheltered during the previous winter from
the action of the atmosphere, from cold,
etc., Was always more fertile than any por
tion of his adjoining land, even under n
high state of cultivation. Our use of mulch
upon small fruits also confirms the above
theory, for a good mulch invariably in
creases the production from 15 to 115 per
cent., as well as contributing very materi
ally to the size, color and cleanliness of tho
fruit. Wo believe that mulching will al

A Revolution is House Phxtixh. Tho advertisement of tho New Jersey Enamel Paint Company ha.-

Our reason lor this is that wo do not liko to recommend a new thing unless wo know it is good. Wo nrro
Pleased to find that tho Agent, Mr. C. P. Knight, was of our way of thinking, nnd wbhed ahnvo all, that tho
paint should be tested, so that tbo editor could givo his conscientious opinion of its merits, Having had this
test made In our household, wo have no hesitancy in saying that tho Enamel Paint comes up fully to all that is
claimed for It. In the country, especially, where it is difficult to procuro tho necessary Ingredients for mixing
paint, and skillful workmen to apply it, tho Enamel Paint will provo Invaluable, as it Is already prepared, and
can bo npplled by any ono possessing ordinary judgment. For plain work in prlvato dwellings, churches nnd
sehool-houfcs It will prove very economical as wcli ns beautiful. Ono gallon of this paint will cover twenty
equato yards, giving two coats. Our friends may safely give it a trial without fear of d sappointmcnt.

Of tho numerous advantages it possesses over other paints I will only mention its being mixed and ready for uso
in quantities to suit purchasers: its quickly drying properties, which saves much timo in the execution cf work
where raint is needed, and its very perceptible tenaelty, which imparts beauty and durability to tho objects on
which It Is used. As such I most earnestly recommend it to tho merchants and tradesmen of our cRy, believing
it will give them greater satisfaction than they can possibly anticipate.
