The Pot on the Fire.
There is one mode of preparing food in
general use in many parts ot Europe which
we should do very well more generally to
adopt; that is, "gentle simmering." In
every or almost every French household
mere is the pot au feu. This permanent
pi on me nre," alter the manner of the
oia-iasnionea digester, occupies a quiet
little corner of the stove or fireplace. It
can hardly be said to boil, but it simmers
on gently, very gently, for hours. There
it is the receptacle of many a little bone,
whether the trimmings of poultry or
butcher's meat. It matters not, every little
stray fragment of wholesome meat finds its
way there, A bit of liver is considered a
great improvement; and any vegetables
that happen to be about, add to its pleas
ant flavor, whether the tops of celery,
Jerusalem artichokes which, par excel
lence, make it delicious or otherwise car
rots, turnips, leeks, etc But supposing it
were ui on maae aitogetner ol tresh ma-

Put a gallon of water into a not . nnt into

Borne other vegetable, three or four tea

fully. Now cover the pot closely, and let
it cook eentlv. for four hours at thp least

Keep Up Your Fires.
- There is one cause of sore throat and
lung diseases which has hardly been
thought of, and deserves to be reprimand
ed. That cause is chilly houses in damp
weather. Nothing in the limits of bad
housekeeping more excites the ire of a
sensitive person than the poor economy of
putting out fires as soon as the almanac
marks the time when: warm weather is due.
The cause of at least one-third of the
disorders common in spring, we believe
to ba the half-chilled condition in which
tlie people force themselves to live. It is
wrong to allow a child ora sensitive person
to shiver at any time, for the chill which
causes such a sensation must do harm.
The system is half penetrated by cold be
fore the creeping, shivering sensation
A full-blooded, healthy person may take
a cold bath in a cold room in winter with
out shivering, the instant touch of the wa
ter being followed by a warm glow; the
same person may be so chilled sitting in a
room below the proper heat for a time
that serious consequences follow. When
women go about the house wrapped in
shawls, it is a sure sign that fires are need
ed, and if economy refuses to light them,
it will be justly rewarded by the colds and
headaches that are sure to follow.
One grand maxim of life is to keep
comfortable, and there is much more in
that sentence than most of the people see.
It does not enjoin mere self-indulgence ;
but it compels one to keepone's own body
and mind in the best working order. You
can't be useful or good-humored when
suffering, and regard for others, as well as
your own happiness will prompt you to
do both. So have the fires lighted if you
are cold, even in August. Exchange.

Why Boys Leave the Farm.
People in these days frequently inquire
oi the larmer, w hy doesn t your son re
main on the farm with you ? and many
are wondering why it is that young men
are leaving the country and seeking homes
m the cities ana villages.
Doubtless, many an old farmer has
thought the answer "p!ain to be seen," and
in his careless way ha expressed his idea.
"Boys now-a-days ere dreadful oneasy
there's nothing to na" We do not doubt
that boys are often inconsiderate and not
nnfrequently are deluded in their visionary
dreams of life ; but we cannot believe the
youth of the present are altogether un
reasons Die anu enure ly given to wild spec
ulations. We have seen New England boys "grow
ing up" to manhood on the farms of their
fathers, and our practical experience and
observation have taught us that gross
errors are made which lead many young
men to leave the form, and which cannot
be attributed entirely to the young men
Let us make a practical illustration
There is a smart, active boy of fifteen sum
mers. His father is a farmer of moderate
means, and entertains, in common with
his neighbors, many old "fogyisms." Dur
ing the winter his 007 is privileged to ' at
tend school a few weeks if he is diligent
and faithful to do the chores before and
after the school session of each day. In
these few weeks of each year he is to get
what his father terms " learning enough
for a farmer." From April to November
he must work on the farm ; where work is
the all-prevailing motto " from early morn
till dewy eve Jo matter it he cannot
hoe more than a half row while his lather
hoes a whole one, he must stay in the field
and keep digging along. No matter how
much his limbs ache and he longs for a
brief recreation, he must persevere and,
by "steady toil in his youthful days, learn
to be industrious.
Oar friend, whom we will name John,
not lazy; but as he advances in years,
he looks about him and sees mechanics
getting larger wtees for ten hours' labor
than he could get on a farm for toiling
from sun to sun." Can we sav he is de
luded, when, having arrived at the age of
twenty-one, he says, " 1 have had enough
fanning. I'll hang up my hoe for a while
see if I can't find something more inte
resting than this weary, plodding life 1"
Our friend has seen but little beauty in
farming. He has never had but one piece
ground to plant himself, and that was a
rough, tough piece cf pas.urage, on which
sheep would starve to death. His father
has always taught him to be industrious,
rise early in the coming ; " for 'tis the
early bird that catches the worm," and " if
would succeed in lire, he must make
long days in the teld." lie has never
taught him to observe and study the beau
ties of yiture, atd listen to her voices ; he
has never taught bin to study the works
his Creator, and by that study see un
written, but instructive volumes. Oh no !
and as for reading, John finds very little
time for that. The old gentleman says
there isn't time for it on a farm, and farm
ers don't need much book laming. These
book-farmers get awfully sucked in."
Thus our friend John is taught to see
only a dull routine in a farmer's life We
are not disposed to derogate regularity,
perseverance, and industry in the educa
tion of boys, but these should be seasoned
with a little of boy's common sense. Un
man nature cannot be entirely set aside in
the culture of youth, without serious detri
ment to them ; and the idea that growing
boys should be taught to labor from sun
rise to sundown, in tlie long days of spring
and summer, that they may learn industry,
an absurdity. They should be taught to
cultivate the heart and mind more ; to read
agricultural works, and learn improved
ways, and as they become interested in
some new idea of raising a particular crop,
why not let them experiment and satisfy
their minds of its goodness or worthless-
ness? There is no teacher like experience.

Preservation of Eggs.
-This subject has recently attracted a
great deal of attention, and many methods
of effecting it have been published, though
none are altogether perfect, for the simple
reason that the tr 10 cause of the spoiling
of the eggs is either lnknown by those
Who have attempted t. furnish us with di
rections, or has been fost sight of bv them.
There are two efficient causes for the
spoiling of eggs, and unless one or both of
these are avoided we cannot hope for suc
cess, me nrst is exposure to a high tem
perature, and the other is accets of air. It
may be safely affirmed that, at a tempera
ture of 32 deg. Fahr., nearly all change
ceases in organic bodies, while very few
organic substances will bear continual ex
posure to a temperature above 90 deg.
The freezing point is rather too low for
the preservation of eggs in good condition,
as freezing affects the flavor unfavorably;
but if we desire to preserve eggs in the
best manner, we must keep them cool, say
at a temperature below 50 deg., if possible,
a temperature which is frequently main
tained in good cellars. But it will be of
no use to place the eggs in a cool cellar if
they have been previously exposed tor
hours to a temperature ot over in) deg.
The collection of the eggs must, therefore,
in the first place, eugage our, attention.
Now, it has been well known' that hens
are most inclined to set in the months of
May, June aud July, and that, during these
months, the eggs in the nest are peculiarly
liable to be set"upon by brooding hens.
On the other hand, during the month of
August, and subsequently, the tendency to
brood is not so strong, and the eggs , are
less liable to be injured. Those who raise
poultry, especially those who keep fowls
for the sake of their eggs, commit a grave
error when they fail to remove from their
yards those birds that are mciinea tc set,
and which consequently take every oppor
tunity of warming the eggs in the nests.
If any one will attempt to preserve eggs
that have been subjected to the hatching
process for one or two days, sach. person
will soon, and very easily, discover the
force of these statements. .
Kohler, of Germany, who possesses an
extensive poultry-raising establishment,
and who, every winter, preserves thous
ands of eggs without ever losing one, has
recently published an account of his me
thod of proceeding, and has given the fol
lowing rules for seenrinp favorable resnlta
1. The nest must be placed m a cool po
2. The fowls that show a tendency to
set must be removed at once, and placed
in separate enclosures until this propensity
has lett them.
3. If many chickens be confined in the
same enclosure, or use the same nests for
laying their eggs, the eggs ought to be re
moved from the nest several times a day.
4. The eggs ought to be assorted accord
ing to age, and preserved in boxes with
the covers partially open. These must be
kept in a cool, airy , and perfectly dry
5. At the commencement of winter the
store of eggs is placed in some room that
is not heated by fire, but that is, at the
same time, thoroughly protected from
6. The packages are so arranged that the
oldest may be used first
Eggs treated according to these rules do
not acquire the peculiar taste which is
generally the result of the recipes in vogue
for preserving eggs. The number of these
recipes is almost unlimited. Some recom
mend the use of lard or butter, which,
when rubbed over the egg, fills the pores,
excludes the air, and prevents the eggs
from drying out That there are powerful
causes in the spoiling of eggs is easily
proved, ior tne time that has elapsed since
an egg was laid may be roughly estimated
bv taking its specific gravity. If we dis
solve common salt in water, at the rate of
three ounces of salt in twenty-five of wa
ter, it will be found that freshly laid eggs
will just sink in this solution. An egg
that has been kept for one day will hardly
sink to the bottom ; at three days old it
will float on the surface, more of it being
elevated above the surface, proportion to
its age. These phenomena are caused by
the drying out of the egg, and the extent
to which they take place in a given time
depends somewhat on the weather. Smear
ing the eggs with lard or butter prevents

of the eggs. Dipping the eggs in lime-
water is also recommended. The lime
fills the pores of the eggs, and serves the
same purpose that the grease did. But of

mended for this purpose, water glass, or

The first thing to be done then is to take
the animal away from the flock as toon as
it is attacked, and keep it away in another
bam, 11 possible, the farther the better ana
safer for the rest. Give it plenty of fresh
air and sunlight ; shear the wool closely
from the aflectcd part : make ahop -poultice.
and spread it upon a cloth long enough to
reacn lrom tne nose down to the brisket,
and wide enough to come well up on the
sides of the neck. To the edges of this
cloth sew five pairs of strings, ouc io-.ha
tied between the eyes and nose, one be
tween the eyes and ears, and three upon
the neck. Let this be changed as often as
it gets cold. Give a pint of good oat meal

spoonsiui of strong ginger and a gill of

your patient you will have the consolation
of knowing that you have given it the best
treatment that experience could suggest
If a swelling occurs, which is not attend
ed by mortification, or which does not re
sult in that, careful search should be made
for any abscesses that . may be forming
about the parts, and when any toft spot is
found, it should at once be punctured with
a sharp knife If the abscess be a large

same poultice as recommi'nded above, and
the same general treatment, modified by
the mildness or the severity of the disease.

From the New York Evening Express.
Our Reporter in Buffalo.
It has been my privilege, while sojourning
In this place, and during a short respite from
my labors, to pay a visit to the " medicine
man" of the "Queen City of the Lakes." While
the medical world teems with commoners in
skill and commonplace remedies, the most of
which rise into notice, live a brief period, be
come obselete, and are lost in obsurlt j or pale
beneath greater brilliance, the truly worthy,
those who by dint of severe application and
close investigation are able to rise above
mediocrity, impart to ;the world useful infor
mation, utilize the developments nude, and
place before the afflicted specific remedial
agencies for the ills suffered, are bleaeings to
be appreciated, objects worthy cf honor.
They are the beacon lights to guide the mari
ner over the tempestuous sea of life, the star
of hope towards which the unfortunate turn
their eyes for safety and deliverance. I would
not exaggerate the merits of this medical
gentleman, or the agents of his hands. From
small beginning, and of recent date, yet af
ter long and patient toil and a conviction tuat
the Eureka had been fonnd, Dr. R. V. Pi'rce,
the subject of this article, announced to the
world his discoveries in medicine, and the
positive influences they manifest in disease.
Upon their specific properties rest their
merits. Their virtues are worthily extolled,
and the tidings of their efficacy have gone
from mouth to mouth, until his name is
heard In every habitation and echoed from
every hill, valley and plain, while his medi
cines are sought for and scattered over the
whole continent It U by directing intuitive
faculties and the whole mental and physical
-energies In' a certain direction, "that excel
lence is reached and a proficiency worthy of
publle confidence attained. In this science,
at in others, we find the few who lead the tan
of followers make all the Investigations add
discoveries for the rest I found Dr. Pierce
In hi consultation parlors, surrounded with
patients, and amid piles of books, prJrs,
manuscripts and letters, a large library, a
cabinet of curlqu looking instruments,
another of anatomical, pathological and
other specimens, maps, pictures and diplomu,
which he has received from different colleges
and hospitals, upon the walls, with assistants
passing here and there, that at once conveyed
the idea of an Immense business of which he
was the central figure, and it diverging In all
directions. Although in rooms thus furnished
and decorated with surroundings characteris
tic of talent and learning, also indicative of a
life crowded with cares and duties, with an
appreciation of valuable services by au afLicted
public, I was most agreeably entertained,
both by his conversational aud business cpti
tudes and the exhibition that hU establish
ment affords, which he very kindly placed it
my disposal. As a further evidence of scho
lastic attainments, and an indomitable zesl in
the investigation of the nature of chronic
diseases and their successful treatment, his
many monographs contributed to meaictl
journals, and several late exhaustive treaties
on special chronic diseases, which were -written
in the intervals between business cares,
fullv attest. We see patients at his rooms
from all parts or the continent, afflicted with
all kinds of chronic disease, who have come
to avail themselves of bis superior skill, and
those associated with him, making a Council
of Doctors who have devoted lives to this
specialty. Besides this, an endless number
make known their-maladies by letter, all of
which are very carefully considered by, tr.
Pierce and his medical counselors, the neces
sary prescriptions, advice or medicines tcing
promptly iurwarded by mail or express, non
being neglected, but every lnoulry an
swered, every want supplied, and every
attention paid necessary to establish
health again. Aside from ail this, tte.e are
many from his own immediate community
who seek his services, and, by the wonderful
cures made, attest his great skill in treating
chrome diseases. A beautiful illustration of
the Instincts and finer feelings of true men
hood Is here exemplified. While his specie
medicines, with a knowledge of their apnli
cation; are being scattered broadcast over the
land, and placed at prices within the reach of
all, a life devotee to the interests of others,
and. -schooled amid suffering, cannot remain
idle to enjoy the fruits of such labor, bt in
stead, he still lends an ear to the appeals of
the sick, a tender sjmpathy to the distressed,
and a cheerful heart aud hand to all their ne
cessities, 'i No poverty, however a'lject, or ad
verse circumstances, however discouraging,
need debar the afflicted fromapproaching him
for hi services. They are cheerfully rendered
alike to all.. It proves also that the mere
manufacture and vending of a medicine
does not satiato the aspirations and im
pulses of a charitable ami manly heart. In
carrying out this enterprise the best medical
talent is invoked. Every act coincides witfc
system and discipline, and the most harmo
nious activity prevails in every department
Passing into the laboratory, w are moot fa
vorably impressed with its extreme neatness
and order. Every mechanism necessary to
facilitate the manufacture of Lis medicines is
used, and these are arranged in perfect order.
The crude roots and barks are ground, pul
verized and mixed by steam-power, end, most
Important of all, the process of extracting
their virtues is not by the stereotyped and im
perfect methods of the past, but by an entire
ly new discovery of his own, whereby perfect
and beautiful medicines are produced, con.
taining all the medicinal qualities of the In.
gradients composing them, and which are pal
atable and without equal. So perfect are thsir
compositions, the ingredients so nicely pro
portioned and adjusted, so superior the mode
of manufacture, that they are perfectly trans
parent and not subject to change in any cli
mate or temperature. It Is with such means,
perfect in themselves, and their correct adap
tation, that his skill in disease is partly attrib
utable, and the public are not slow to under
stand and appreciate the fact, as evinced by
the enormous demand for his medicines from
all parts of the continent. We next pus into
the bottling room, where an endless quantity
of bottles are washed and filled by machine
ry, and with exact nicety. Then into
the labeling and wrapping room, where
the work is done by girls ; also folding printed
matter, trimming labels, tying packages, and
such other works as the business requires,
Thence Into the packing room, where the
goods are securely put up for shipment to all
parts of the land. I was informed that many
times, with these superior facilities for
preparing medicines, the demand for Tr.
Sage's Catarrh Remedy, of which Dr. Pierce
is the sole proprietor and manufacturer, and
also for. the Doctor's Golden Medical Dis
covery, has been greatly in excess of tie
supply, and that orders to the amount of
several thousand dollars would remain in
waiting to be filled. This proves a ready
and growing sale, based upon the merits of
the -medicine The above uetails I have
gathered from my own careful personal ob
servations, conversation with patients under
the Doctor's treatment, employes of the
establishment, and citizens of the community
in which he resides.
I bid the Doctor adien, after having spent
a considerable time most agreeably in his
establishment, with the conviction of tha
truth of Pope's couplet : -.
" Honor and Fame from no condition ra.
Act well your part there all the honor Set."
