The Story of Hercules.
BY THE FAT CONTRIBUTOR."
Hkbcuijcs was the sori'Trf Jupiter and
Alemena, and the strongest man of his
time. The Cfermans cafahlm Herr Cules,
and claim him for a Dutchman. Alemena,
his mother, being a daughter of Earth,
Jnno (Mrs. Jupiter) was naturally hostile
to her offspring. She declared war against
Hercules from his birth. She sent two
serpents to destroy him as he lay in his
cradle, but delerium tremens not being
known in those days. Hercules stood in
no fear of " snakes," so instead of dosing
himself with whisky and velirianto drive
them away he just infl(ei them. That
was his style. Their staffed nicies may
be found in any well-regulated museum

How Consumption May be Cured.
The first announcement to a patient that
he or she has consumption, is often like
a death knell. The vacant stare, the pale
cheek, and the convulsive sigh, indicate a
shock of the most proiound character.
Indeed, I have known persons to swoon -away
and require the most active exer
tions to restore them. And yet it is not
true that consumption is necessarily a fa
tal disease. In point of fact it is not so
fatal as many cases which prevail in every
community, and yet excite no remark.
Consumption results from a perverted
nutrition. Instead of that perfect assim
ilation essential to sound health, there is
an elaboration of the nutritive fluids,
which leads by inflammatory action or
other processes, to. -the .disposition in the
lungs and other tissues of crude 'material
known as tubercle. Persons predisposed
to consumption, or living under circum
stances which lower the vital energies and
prevent the nutritive processes, are those
in whom this affection most frequently
appears. It follows thajt there is no spe
cific for consumption. It is not curable
by medicines ; on the contrary, its fatal
issue is more often hastened by medica
tion. For the encouragement of patients, and
to illustrate the course of life most likely
to restore vigorous health, a condition in
compatible with consumption, I usually
relate cases that have come under my ob
servation. The following is one example
among many : ' "

An Indian Romance.
Grace Greenwood writes as follows :
At the Land Office, the other day, Mr.
Wilson, the Commissioner, who has col
lected a remarkably curious and valuable
cabinet and museum, showed us a singu
lar trophy; of Indian warfare a head
dress of the most frightful and diabolical
description. It was composed of buffalo
horns ' and skin, adorned with wampum
and tinsel, and long-, wild tufts of buffalo
hair. Depending from it was a tail of in
ordinate length, also tinseled and tufted,
with small sleigh-bells running all the
way down it. This unique accoutrement
was once the property of Tall Bull, a
Cheyenne Chief, who was killed in a fight
With the United States Fifth Cavalry and
their Pawnee auxiliaries, under General
Carr. some time last summer. When this
chief, who was a gigantic savage, saw that
the day was lost, he put his wile apd child
on a pony, and sent them within our lines,
telling them to surrender to the whites.
The Indian Iwoman. who was kindly
ceived, said that when- her husbans 46
her she must give herself up, she urged
him to go with her, but that he covered
his ears with his hands to shut out ' her
entreaties, and rushed back into the fight,
which was the last she ever saw of the
lamented Tall Bull. He was speedily
killed, and these are his remains. In this
same engagement, another Cheyenne wo
man, young and remarkably handsome,
came dashing into our ranks, with two
children strapped to her pony. But she
did not come to surrender. She came like
a fighting fury, armed with a long knife,
with which she struck frantically right
and left. At last, seeing herself about to
be captured, she stabbed to the heart first
one child, then the other, then herself,
and so perished a Medea whom there is
no Euripides to immortalize.

pose a field, of 10 acres is to be cut, the
mower should be started as early as possi
ble in the i morning, and by noon the
whole field will be done. If the weather
is dry the tedder should start at 9 a. m
beginning where the mower began and
ionowmg xne same rounus as me mower,
till the whole field has been tedded over
as soon as that is done, the tedder should
begin again where it first begaw, and go

course ot rounds as the tedder ; and
soon as sufficient is raked up to form
cocks, every available man and boy en
the place should be put to the work of
cocking, and the whole of the crass wad

evening dews begin to tall. These cocks
should stand all next day, while another

Curing Hay in the Cock.
We are not only in the habit of cuttine
our grass too late, but we eive it too mUch
sun, m our haste to nnish the job in one
day. This course maxsayewlabqr. but it
loses nourishment. It is not very much
more laborious to cure 'buy hi the rock.
(Jut the grass alter the .dew is off, and let
it lie until the middle of the afterhoon.
and then bunch it in thi: usual way. ; Let
it remain m thie condition until the third
day. Then shake up . the cocks a little
with, a fork, bringing tne -pottom to the
top, and l-t it rum Mil .until the next day.
It it storms the hay will not liarm mucti
o lie fiver. If it Is good weather, give it
an hoirr or two of 'sun, ' and fjiit la the
barn. This course saves much of the
tabor of tedding and , turning, , There is
but one rak ing, antj the Quality of the hay
is very 'trrdcli better than the sun-dried
and 'hastily-cured -article. All the sweet
ness and aroma ot the grass are; retained ;
and the cattle eat it with a higher relish,
and thrive better upoto it. 'If otte Is fur
nished with bay cape there is very little
risk in curing hay in this way. The
capped cocks might stay in the. field a
week without harm. ' A farmer' may use
his hay-tedder quite too much for the
Profit of Farming.

The returns cf most crops strike one
sometimes With astonishment, and would,
if taken an a i teat, lead to the most delu
sive speculations. A grain of seed some
times returns one hundred fbld ! and this
being Sown a second year would, perhaps,'
give ten thousand fold, and sv on in geo
metrical ratio, severity ousneis oi pota
toes planted will yield fourteen hundred,
or twenty for one ; a bushel of wheat
sown will yield thirty bushels, or thirty.
for, one ; a peck Qf fpgn planted, will yield
sixty bushels, or two, hundred and forty
for One',- a pound of carrot, beet or rata
baga seed will prodwse. six to nine hun
dred bushels, .worvi one nunoreu dollars.
The proceeds in these cases seem to be
enormous, yet they are constantly real
ized, and that too ; in many cases at com
paratively small expense. But no confi
dent conclusions of the exact jjrefits of
farming are to be drawn' 'from' such re
sults aa these ; so many, untold- circum
stances of abatement enter into the cost,
that if these' were the only elements given
