LOZENGES sold in shops and on street

The whole wrapper for a single roll of

mended, that the melted solder may be re

OWING to the worn-out condition of the
soil, neither Spanish meats nor vegetables
possess any flavor ; among fruits, water
melons and grapes are alone grateful to the
taste. Flavor is conliled to butter and
onions. Of the latter, very little goes a
great way ; of the former, the very least
goes no way at all with one not to the but

deserves the naite of hog's lard." I do
not refer to olives, because they are excep

THE daughter of a prominent capitalist
of Cincinnati, who had enjoyed every ad
vantage of school and thshionable society
which wealth and position could bestow,
became so fascinated with the melodies of
the cork opera that she ran away from
home about a year ago and went on the
stage as a ballet dancer. She next appeared
at a Chicago theater in a subordinate part
during Lawrence Barrett's ellnagement.
Hier father offered to settle $30,000 upon
her if she would renounce her wayward
life. She refused to leave the fasciliations
of tinsel and foot-lights, and again disp

RECENT investigations into the condi
tion of the workingn.un of England have
disclosed some rather surprising facts rel
ative to their earnings, savings, etc. It
appears that in the savings banks of the
country, established for the working
classes, the deposits now amount to £00,
000,000. As much as £20,000,000 of this
has been deposited since 1862, though. a
cotton famine and a commercial panic has
occurred within that time. These depos
its in 1871 alone amounted to £3,820,294.
In addition to this, the various friendly
and benevolent societies, of which there
are about twenty thousand, own an accu
mulated capital of about twenty million
pounds sterling, or one hundred million
dollars. To this must still be added the
wealth of the trades unions, which com
prise over 700,000 men, and have an

MR. F. A. RosE, living two miles below
Port Jervis, N. Y., on the Milford Road,
has such a passion for driving young and
fractious horses that notwithstanding lie
has had both legs broken twice, one shoul
tber dislocated, both arms and several ribs
broken, and his top-lights badly smashed,
in his favorite pursuit, he still insists upon
teachind the young trotting idea how to
step. It is a common thing to see him
hobble on crutches to his rickety wagon,
get in behind a spirited animal and drive
to Port Jervis, braving the noise and the
danger of locomotives and cars. When a
horse becomes so tame that there is no
longer any danger in driving him., he sells
or exchanges him for a younger and more
mettlesome one. Aside from his number
less mishaps, which have left him a crip

Tu status of foreigners holding posi
fibns of trust and emolument under the
Mikadlo's iovernmnent appears by no
means what those unacquainted with the
land of the rising sun believe it to be.
An American of distinction, who has had
the best chance to note the inner work
ings of the official machinery, says that
there is no place of real responsibility iv
en to a foreigner. le may imagine ti
but that is all. He is rated on the service
roll as a servant. His work is undefined,
if possible, and he is merely kept as a die
tionary to be referred to. Abstract ques
tions are continually submitted to him.
but ,o decision of stibstantial practical af
fairs necessary to a clear understanding of
the case is permitted, It is certain that a
foreigner can never hope to be more than
a second or third-rat4 personage, His em
ployers do not altoo"ther comprehend his
learning or his moc0 of thought, and his
usefulness or earnest desire to be service
able is therefore more or less paralyzed.
Though some foreign office-holders make
a show of work, the' Japanese have but

PUMI'KLN P*Es.-Pare the pumpkin,
grate it and add sugar and ginger to taste,
and milk enough to make it otf the proper
consistency. 1'hen line your tins with
pie-crust, put it your pumpkin, and bake
in the ordinary, way.
APPLE CAKE,-2 cups of stewed apples
boiled in 2 cupi of stewed molasses. Drain
off the molasses (for the cake) from the ap
ples, add 2 eggs, 2 teaspoonfuls of soda, 4
culps of lour, I cup of butter, 1 cup sour
milk; spice to suit. Then add the apple
( which was drained as above). The apples
should be soaked the night before stewing
for the cake.
COLORINe BUrTTER.-Take one good-sized
orange carrot ifor every four pounds of
butter; grate it up finely, and put it in a
strong muslin cloth; press out and p our
into the cream before churning. You
will then have yellew butter if well
worked. The juice is sweet and gives a
good flavor to winter butter.
MOLASSES-C(:RED H.Ai.--Moisten every
part of the haun with molasses, and then
for every hundred pounds use one quart
of salt and four ounces of saltpeter, rub
bit g them in very thoroughly in every
Ipoint. Then Irub again with molasses and
one quart of salt, and return the hams to
the casks for four days. Repeat this the
third and fourth time, and then smoke the
hams. This process takes only sixteen
days, while other methods require five or

frames or gates -ix feet long, three feet
wide, and %vi! : four cross-bars each.
Hinge the two gates together by means of
three pairs of eye-bolts with a long rod
pass:ing through each pair. Put five teeth
twelve inches long and three-quarters of an
inch thick of square iron rod in each cross

fifty-two teeth. This harrow should be
drawn from one corner.
SAvE the tea-leaves for a few days, then
steep, them in a tin pail or pan for half an
hour, strain through a sieve and use the
tea to wash all varnished paint. It re
quires very little "elbow polish," as the
tea :.cts as a strong detergent, cleansing the
paint from all' impurities, and making the
varnish equal to new. It cleans window
sashes and dil-cloths; indeed, any var
nished surface is improved by application.
It washes win low panes and mirrors much
better tian Wvater, and is excellent for
cleaning black walnut picture and looking
glass frames. i It will not do to wash un
varnished paint with it. Whiting is un
equaled for cleaning white paint. Take a
small quantity on a damp flannel, rub
lightly over thie surface, and you will be
surprised at its effects.
SLEEP FOR FARME.RS' WrnES.-A farm
er's wife writes a letter to the Rural New
Yorker which she wants the "men-folks'"
to read. It is a plea for more sleep. Have
you a wife, sle says, who goes about in a
listless, spiritless fashion, as though she
could but just drag herself about? Or is
she cross and fretful, and do you wonder
how she carme to have such a temper?
Ten to one, all she needs to make her
bright and happy is rest, sleep, and loving
words. Hire efficient help, that the wif e
who has passed a sleepless night may take
advantage of baby's morning nap and have
one of her own, or, if she choose, lie down
in the afternoon and make up the lost
sleep. You can afford it if you will. Do
you begrudge a hundred dollars a year for
your wife's comfort and health ? Why, no
breeding-mare would be worked as some
men work their wives! Give women their
home rights help them to bear their bur
dens: 'ive them a few kind, loving words
every day, aid you will have healthier and
happier wives, children, and homes.
Anioxo all 'the ways and machines I have
tried for watphing clothes, says a lady, I
find nothing equal to a barrel and pounder.

holes, into the end of a six or eight inch
sapling (I use butternut, it bores easy, and
is handy), two or three inches deep, then
bore a three-fourth-inch sid.: hole through

as I canu buy tat stores for a dime. I use a
coal oil barrel to pound in; it is cheap and
strong, makes a good water barrel, or con
vetnient to put dirty clothes in. Soap your
clothes well, and put into your barrel just
warm water enough to thoroughly wet the
clothes. In washing this way persons
generally ucpe too much water; it then
makes hard, splashing work. If the water
gets too dity, change it of course. If

Improving Common Fowls.
The Ohio Farmer speaking of the notice
able neglect the ordinary farmer pays to
his stock of poultry, says: There are
usually two excuses offered by the farmer
for not improving his stock of fowls; first,
it does not pay to devote any attention to
common breeds; and second, he is not
able to procure the high-priced superior
breeds. Now in both of these positions he
is incorrect, for the common breeds may be
improved up to a point of excellence that
will make them highly remunerative, and
no man who owns a farm is too poor to buy
a dozen eggs from such breeds of hens as
are best adapted to his use. But our object
in this article is to show how the common
fowls may be improved by care so as to
make them, in real cash value, worth
double the stock as generally found in the
barn-yard of the farmer.
The habits of the differents fowls of the
flock should be observed, and when a
quiet, good laying hen is found save her
eggs for setting. Never raise chickens
from the eggs of a wandering, cross, poor
laying hen; such fowls should be shut up,
fattened, and killed. Select such fowls for
setting as will make the best mothers. If
convenient to do so, give the hen her own
eggs to hatch. Save £the pullets those
which mature earliest, grow largest, and
have the tiaest appearance generally. If
any of these do not prove to be good lay
ers, mark them for the pot-pie and kill
them off It is a fault far too common to
kill the plumpest pullets in the fall and let
the inferior ones live to make the breeding
and laying stock. Attention should also
be given to choosing a nice cockerel; save
one with broad back and breast, small
head, trim legs, and solid body. In the
pullet, essentlial points are, full breast,
broad between the shoulders, straight
breast bone, deep body, trim legs and feet,
well cut small head, bright eyes, and
smooth plnmage. Where the breed now
on hand does not answer the full require
ments, exchange a few eggs with some
neighbor who has a stock of poultry supe
rior to your own, and make a new start
from these. Be sure and have a good
cockerel; on this much of the profit de
pends. A light Brahma cock put with the
common fowls will advance the value ofi
the stock in a single year one hundred per
cent., and about the same result will be
obtained by a cross with the Cochins.
DON'T TAMPER WITH A COUGH.-Perhaps
in the whole category of diseases to which hu
manity is susceptible, the cough is most nep
lected in in its early stage. A simple cough is
generally regarded as a temporary affliction
unpleasant and nothing more; but to those
who have paid dearly for experience, it is the
signal for attack for the most fearful of all
disease--Consumption. A cough will lead to
consumption-if not checked-so sure as the
rivulet leads to the river, yet is is an easy ene
my to thwart, if met by the proper remedy.

edy of the age, and has earned its reputation
by merit alone. Sold by all good druggists.

DR. J. WALKER. an old and prominent
physician of California, discovered, by ac

"a boon to stffelring humanity." Being a

the prejudice existing among his profes

practitioners, and give to sufflrinv human
ity the benefit of his accidental disecoverv.
He did so, and the benefits from its use be
came known. The demand increased, and
immense quantities were sold, at a merely
nominal price. Its merit is told in the fact
that "in two years over SLX mILLIONS of
bottles have been sold;" and still the de
mand increases. Surely such a man should
be ranked among the benefactors of the

Dear Dr. PIERCE:
When I was 12 or 15 years of age I took
what is called King's Evil, and by constant
doctoring it would heal in one place and break
out in another. It also broke out in my left
ear. I first found your name in the Christian
Adcocate, and seat 10 miles for the first bot
tie, which did me more good than all other
medicines I ever used. I am 28 years old and
doctored with five doctors, and not one of
them helped me so much as your bottle of
Diccovery. I have got well and able to do a
good day's work. Jois A. WVI.soN.

daily asked, "What is the cause of' 't'e
unparalleled success of VINEGAR , t B .
TERSP. Our answer is, that they remove
the cause of disease, and the patient re .
covers his health. They are the great
blood purifier and a life-giving principle,
a perfect Renovator and Invigorator
of the system. Never before in the
history of the world has a medicine been
compounded possessing the remarkable
inalities of VINEGAR BITTERS in healing the
