When harness becomes rusty, says
an exchange, give a ,new -coat of grain
black. Before applying this wash the
grain side of the leather with -"potash
water, cold, until the grease is removed.
After the leather ia dry apply the
grain black and then oil and tallow.
This fastens the color and makes
the harness flexile and soft. Grained,
harness can be cleaned by a
cloth moistened with kerosene, but
should beimmediately washed and piled, ,
:afterward. Washing "harness with"
"warm water and soap soon injures the
leather. All varnishes, and blacking
containing varnish, are injurious.
How much is skimmed milk worth

question in butter-making
districts, and quite often the possible;

ino pigs, an addition of the skimmed
milk from a cow in full flow of milk for
each pig will keep them growing with
very little corn. It is quite as well,
however, to have two or three pigs to
'every cow and supplement the feed with
a greater proportion of grain. For the
amount that they will eat no kind of
stock will make so profitable use of
milk as laying hens Southern. Planter.
.Farming as an Occupation- -How to
; Make It Pay.
On general principles we may assert
!that the- margin of profit in farming-'will
depend as in other occupations on
,the order of talent devoted to it and the
capital employed in it. Judging from
!the practice of the average farmer, we
ithink he has a good deal to learn yet on
iboth these points, The old adage so
'frequently quoted as though it were a
;self-evident truth, "He that with the
plow would thrive, himself must either
ihold or drive," is in my opinion a piece
lof unmitigated nonsense. It is a part of
tthe old absurdity that farming simply
means manual labor. A man might
drive a team or hold a plow excellently
land yet be destitute of "nearly every
quality that would constitute a good
if armer; just "as a man might be an
in the manipulating of setting
itype and yet be unfit 0 conduct a newspaper
Ability to perform some manual or
(mechanical operation is a very convenient
thing to have; it is not, however,
of much importance in estimating the
'.fitness of a man for the successful con
duct of any business enterprise, whether J
it be a farm; a factory or a mercantile
establishment. More than that, a man;
who is-going to conduct such an enter- ;
prise must be better employed. Me
cannot afford to spend his time in
operations that he can hire done for
one dollar or two dollars 'per day. The
return will be in proportion to what you
give and as you give, itoes not your J
Bible teach that what a man soweth
, that shall he also reap? That, and not
something else. If you have nothing
else to give your farm than manual labor,
at will yield just about what manual
labor is worth in the labor market, and
you must be content to live on that; not
because your farm has nothing better to
give, but because you give your farm
nothing better. Give,.it the enthusiasm
of one who loves his occupation. Give
it the hest intellectual service of which
you are capable, leading you to the
wisest possible adaptation of means to
.an end, and with a liberal hand it will
shower upon you the ample reward for
that higher service.
The margin of profit, in farming wilL
also be in proportion to the amount
of,capital. judiciously employed. X have,
kcown some farmers, who in other respects
had excellent practical ideas, but
whose practice in regard to the use of
.capital did much to prevent a larger-success.
As soon as they had accumulated
a little beyond theiiv immediate
wants they would put it out at interest;
;Well, perhaps you will say, a little
money out at interest surely isn't a very
(damaging thing. Ofcourse in itself
considered it is a very good thing, but it
jmight be worth while for some people
jtoaskif there is not something better;
iwhether there is not a bank on their own
farm in which that money co.ulilbc
made:to yield a'larger dividend? or better
still, whether some of it might
not be better employed in improving
the minds and manners of the home
circle, fitting them to mingle in society
with the intelligent and refined. s We "

The Piute is not an impressive character.
Civilization has done its worst .
for him. He has learned all the bad
and none of the good. He dresses in
the prevailing style of the. mining camps,
"with flannel shirt and broad-brimmed
hat. In. the spring, summer and fall he
hunts, -fishes and picks berries, and
disposes of his surplus stock to the
whites. He is an inveterate gambler, a
hard drinker, when he can get liquor,
and when drunk is a fiend. The tribal
rolations of the Piutes have been broken
up, "although they still recognize a nominal
'Ghief. '" They roam aimlessly
over the country from. . place to place,
begging and stealing, and living the
Lord only knows how. In the winter
they are the scavengers of the State.
They know the location of every" swill-barrel,
refuse-heap and ash-pile in
Nevada, and never a day passes that
they do not make rounds, always finding
something to repay them for their
trouble. One of them recently came
ambling tip to an ash-barrel which, the
owner remarked to a bystander, contained
nothing that even a Piute would
deem of value. The red man poked
around it for a time, and then tipped
the barrel over, empting most of its
contents on the ground. The owner
had some misgivings, but he stiir
laughed, and said the "Injun" would
.find nothing there. Pretty soon the fellow
picked out something and put it in
his pocket. The owner's curiosity was
aroused. Walking up to the redskin,
he asked: j . ,; j.j.
"You don't find much in there do
"Mebbe," said he; "heap catch 'em
He had found tone or two ancient
quids in the ashes, and did not
despair of picking out a few more. So
they go from the back doors of the best
houses to those of saloons and slaughter-.-houses,
&ladlv appropriating to their
' i '
- -"- -
own use hundreds of things which the
white man has discarded as useless.
To most people the Piute is the personification
of a joke. A more solemn
mortal than he can not very well be
imagined; but his quaint ways, his imitation
of the white man, more especially
the bad white man, and his queer-assumption
of the airs of civilized life
make him a very picturesque object
when he " does not render himself a
nuisance, as is'quite apt to be the case.
It doesn't take a great deal of silver
change to start a big: gambling game
among the Piutes. If a crowd of fifteen
or twenty can raise ten dollars or
twenty dollars in silver the sport will be
kept up -for hours. These gambling
spells take on the nature of a tournament,
and last sometimes for weeks, at
tracting the red sports from all parts
of the State. They meet in the daytime
on the sunny side of their wickiups,
from which they extend wings by tying
blankets on poles to break the force
of the wind. The gamblers place two
poles on the ground about ten feet apart
and parallel with each other, and seat
themselves on the ground cross-legged
outside the poles. There are generally
six or eight bucks on each side, and the
stakes are stacked on the open ground
between the poles. The game that they
play is incomprehensible to the white
inind, but it seems to be nothing more
than guessing by one buck in which hand
another holds some shells. While this
is in progress the players sing a monotonous
chant and sway their bodies to
and fro. When night comes on sagebrush
fires are lighted, and the games
often last until morning, the squaws
and children standing near, as deeply
interested in the game as the players.
No game can be played without the
dismal accompaniment of chanting;, and
no weirder sights can be imagined than
those to be witnessed in one of these
protracted day and night tournaments.
It was at one of these festive gatherings
that one of the wives of Chief Nache
gave birth to twins, and the proceedings
were broken up in the expectations that,
in accordance with the traditions of the
race, one of the new-comers would be
given up to be killed. The mother,
however, "begged so piteously that the
life of her offspring be spared that
Kachez concluded to let them both live,
and the dissapointed redskins resumed
The Piutes have no enemies but the
Washoes, a tribe even more. degraded
than they. Reports frequently gain
currency "that the two "nations" are at
war, and that dreadful bloodshed has i
resulted. "These stories usually originate
with the Piutes, who are unconscionable
liars, and seem to enjoy the narration
of tales of slaughter tor the edification
of the whites, particularly when
the latter are in a generous mood. The
two tribes have not had an actual fight
since 1863, when the Piutes managed to
reduce their ancient enemies to subjection,
and from that day to this they
have lorded lU over the subject race in
the mostinhuman manner. NoWashoe
s permitted to own a gun or any kind
of a firearm, and the discovery that one
of them has anything of the kind in his
possession is the signal for a Piute raid
and fight, if the weapon is not immediately
surrendeeid. This terrorism in
which the Washoes are held by the
Piutes, themselves the least warlike
perhaps of all th American Indians excepting
the Washoes, would be ludicrous
were it net almost pitiful. Low
and despicable a the Piute maybe, it
seems to afford him satisfaction to
know that he is the master of somebody.
Personal encounters between members
-of the two tribes are of frequent occurrence,
and these form the basis, in the
minds of the genial Piute romancers, of
the bloody battles so often reported as
having taken pkee in remote places.

A Ghastly Stowaivay.
The body of a young man, apj.fi (tebt
ly a stranger, both to the crew aud tha
passengers, was discovered in. tho hold
of the steamer Professor Woermann, of
Hamburg, as the sailors were unloading
per near Little Popo, on the western
coast of Africa. The body was found
completely blocked in by huge bales
fupon bales of merchandise and other
Jheayy goods, sufficient space, however,
jhaving been left for the unfortunate
iinan to breathe, and even to move
jabout a little. It was supposed
(he had contrived to ensconce himself
here when the vessel was about to sail
from Hamburg, tjeincr under the impression
that her destination was England,
and that he would therefore be
released before the food with which he
pad provided himself would be exhausted.
By his side was the bone of a le?
of mutton, of which he had devoured all
the flesh. He had also found means of
breaking open a case of Hollands, and
pad emptied two bottles. His provisions
having been consumed, and there
being no means of escape, or even of
snaking his presence known,
stowaway had apparently died a
fingering death from exhaustion.
The Indian Instinct.
"The Indian may dwell with tho
jCaucasian for years, and live as the
white lives, but on returning to his tribe
he will fall into the habits of savage
life, and will prefer that life," Indian
Agent Gardner said, in an interview
rsvith a reporter for the Denver Tribune.
And he instanced Chlpeta, the wife
of the Colorado Chief Ouray. She
had little communication with
.the whites, but- her husband taught
jher to live as they do. Her house
was well furnished, and provided with
many conveniences that are luxuries in
jborder life. She always had her cook,
and her table was supplied with good
food, well cooked, served in an elegant
iplatter, and eaten with knives, forks and
jspoons. Ouray died in 1880. About a
year ago Chipeta married again, and
to the old ways of her childhood
:among her tribe. She has three trunks
jfull of valuables stored away in the
iagency storehouse. One of them is
filled with silverware presented to her
(by the ladies of the city of Washington.

13 Strike at
A nervousanc disease-stricken old gentleman was sitting- in his room
on an easy-chair, his physician being at his side.
Said the old gentleman, "Now, doctor, you have been treating me for
a long time, and haven't done me much good. I'm tired of all this. I
want you to strike at the root of all my disorders."
Said the doctor, "Do you mean exactly what you say?"
"'To be sure I do," said the venerable invalid.
"Well, here goes!" said the'doctor; and with one whack of his cane
he broke to pieces the brandy-bottle which stood on the mantel.
The old gentleman was angry and excited, but he had a good answer
ready for the doctor. "Doctor, if it hadn't been for your doctrine, I never
would have got into the habit of drinking."
In Brown's Iron Bitters there is strength for the debilitated, refreshment

certainly the best tonic for delicate ladles that 1 have

that want of exercise, close confinements pdorly ventilated
houses, sewer gas poison and malarial poison
often produce sickness among our wives, daughters
nnd sisters, and I believe Swift's Specific Is the remedy
for all this sort of blood-poisoning.
