The Habit of Taking a "Nip."
A city merchant of the old school re
visiting the scene of his labors at the
present day would certainly be a irood deal I
SiartieO, and we fear scandalized, by
various changes which could not fail to
attract his attention. Admiration would
mingle with his astonishment at the vast
scale of modern transactions, the daring
and versatile ingenuity with which plan's
are conceived, arid the rapidity with which
they are executed. But there would be
another side of the picture. He would be
painfully struck by a certain feverish ex
citement observable in city life, and a
growing tendency to disregard the line
"ffhich separates legitimate business from
sheer gambling. He would find that the
disastrous conseqnenoes of reckless trad
ing, which in his day would have brought
uirate, are now recKoned among the
ordinary and natural risks of commercial
enterprise. And looking a little more
cioseiy into the private habits of those
who had succeeded him, he would observe

main, bnt the tendency of development is
evidently in the direction of the gaudy
refreshment bar, with fittings in the high
est style of Parisian ornament, stucco
mouldings, panels of white and gold,
flowery arabesques, mirrors flashing on
the walls, and reflecting the gleam of
crystals, colored glasses and bottles, bou
quets of artificial flowers, and lavish show
of electro-plate on the long marble count

been accomplished ; in others the old and

throwing out an annexe of Albambra
splendor, or some famous old tavern
breaking out into gilding and looking
glasses in a corner of its dingy yard. But
even in the traditional chop house, with its
wooden boxes, sanded floor, gridiron his
sing and spattering in a corner of the
room, and metal plates to keep the chops
warm, although externally the old aspect
the place remains the same, a change may
be noticed from the uniform simplicity of

York and elsewhere has been carried
to a height at which, through be
ing so flagrantly scandalous and intolera
ble, it has almost begun to cure itself, has
unfortunately taken root in London and
others of our chief cities. The habit of
taking irregular "nips," "pegs," "pick-me-ups,"
or "eye-openers," as the Yan
kees call them, is established among us,
and seems to be rapidly gaining ground.
The forenoon glass is in especial request,
and men who shrink from going to public
Dars have no scruples about htting up
neat mahogony cellar in their own office,
where they can help themselves to a glass
whenever they want it. Under these cir
cumstances the drinking at a bar or in any
public manner is clearly the less of the
two evils, for the same reason that the
open blazj of the grate is less dangerous
than a smouldering Deam under the carpet.

the opinion may be, it does operate to
some extent as a check on drinking in
public. Sec et drinking is free and un
controlled. The bottle in the private
room is the most alarming phase of mer
cantile alcoholism; for the tippler helps
himself as often as he likes, the tempta
tion is ever present, and wine is apt to be
supplanted by gin or brandy.
It is beyond question that the potations
of city men are terribly on the increase.

is the confession. The old rule of self-de
nial and abstinence during the sacred
"business hours" is set at nought, and the
consequences are of a kind which it is a
duty to expose. The evil effects of this
pernicious habit are not confined to ruined
health and shattered constitution; they
may be traced in the general course of
business, in the wild projects of gain fos
tered by an excited brain, the relaxation of
prudence, and the weakening of moral
resolution and self command, of which we
have had in recent years such painful evi
dence in the records of the bankruptcy
and criminal courts. The pressure of
business is nowadays intensified by the
operation of two conflictLig circumstances
on the one hand, an increase ii the
amount of work, and on the other, a con
stant tendency to reduce the hours within
which the work was to be performed. A

would have occupied our grandfathers
several weeks, perhaps mouths, is now dis
posed of in as many days. The facilities

Advices which arrive in the morning have
now to be answered within an hour or
two, if not on the instant ; and one matter
is no sooner settled than another presses
for decision. And thus the tide of affairs
flows on swiftly and without intermission
irom week s end to week s end. If a tran
saction is profitable, the profits bring fresh
care ana trouoie, lor they have to be in
vested without delay. If there is a loss it
must be repaired with similar speed. If or
is it merely that the number ot transac
tions is multiplied a thousandfold, but the
sams staked on them have also risen in a
still greater ratio. The safe but com
parativcly petty gains of the old school of
traders are despised as too insignificant for
pickmg up. " iiig things " are the order
of the day, and the risks of loss are neces
sarily in proportion to the chances of gain.
The effect of all this is obviously to pro
duce a restless anxiety, a perpetual strain
on the nerves, the danger of which lies
not merely in the exhaustion which at
tends it, but in the tendency which it is
apt to engender to seek some artificial
stimulus for jaded powers, and at the
same time a sedative for the fevered ex
citement of high-pressure work.

the evil stop here. It is impossible that

The Value of Clover,
Clover is a crop which has rather
more intrinsic value than any other
product of the farm. It can be appro
priated to three very valuable purposes.
First for pasture and hay to feed to stock
second, to plow under to improve and fer
tilize the land ; and third, to raise seed
and Ell the purse.
11 intended tor pasture, turn in the
stock about the first of May, or when the
ground is firm, so that the cattle will not
mdent the soil with their feet At that
time the growth will be enough advanced
to enable the cattle to thrive, and if it is
the design to raise seed, the cattle can re
main on the grass till the 15th or 20th of
June, and it will be well to have the
clover cropped pretty close at this time, as
it will give the second crop more ample
chance to grow, and mature the seed.
V hen a crop ot hay is intended to be
made, and the after crop to be left to go to
seed, the grass for hay, as a rule, should be
cut some days earlier; though there be
some disadvantage in drying the hay. the
loss will likely be more than made up by
the increase of the seed, than if left stand
ing uncut a longer time. But if it is not
the desire to grow clover for seed, the first
crop had better remain standing till the
clover blossoms have become partially
brown. It will render into hay more
readily, and there will be less danger in
curing on account of the weather, and
tne iooa will be relished by the stock
equally as well, if not better than when
cut greener and in a slippery state.
ut the advantage ol clover to the im
provement of the soil, the half has not
been said or told, in keening up the fer

raised on the farm that is equal to clover,

me uesi ume to sow clover seed is
when the snow is on the ground, some
time in the month of March, and the best
plan to sow it is to take a pair of horses
and a sled, hx a piece of timber twenty-
four feet long across the rear end of the
sled ; the center of the scantling or timber
to be in the centre ot sled, then fasten
chains to each end of the piece and one in
the center, to drag in the snow to mark
off lands twelve feet wide, by which to
sow the seed, two casts to each land.
Marking out the lands or belts is best
done by using poles. Set the first range
of poles thirty-four feet from the fence.
and the other ranges thirty-six feet apart,
which if run straight will make the lands
all uniformly twelve feet wide, and every
bout with the sled will mark off three
lands. Boys or men can sow much evener

bare ground, because on the snow they
can sec how they are sowing, and how and

with ordinary rain and sunshine to favor
its growth ; and where can be found the
growing material that will yield such
good fertilizing substance as clover at the
trifling cost of a dollar to two per acre?
In fact, it is a good practice for farmers
to sow it among all crops, and at every
opportunity, for its growth will take the
place of foul weeds that would otherwise
spring up, if the ground is left bare.
Among corn, at the last working, or
among buckwheat it will pay to sow
clover seed liberally. Even though it is
not largely developed before it must be
destroyed, it will amount to considerable,
and amply repay the investment either to
rot on the ground, or to be plowed under.
Other substances such as buckwheat,
turnips and oats, can be used to plow un
der to improve land, but then they are far
inferior to clover, but notwithstanding
that they may answer a good purpose, es
pecially buckwheat sown right thick to
smother briers and choke out weeds. But
in conclusion, we can say in regard to the
value of clover in keeping up the fertility
of the farm, that it can be done cheaper
than by carting manure from a distance,
and at such extravagant prices, as farmers
m most neighborhoods have to pay for it
There are two good things for farmers to
do to produce a great benefit to land.
First sow clover seed, buckwheat, rye,
oats, turnips, or any other vegetable mat
ter very thick, to occupy the ground and
subdue weeds; afterwards destroy their
growth and allow them to decompose in
the soil. The second thing, and not the
least is,fto abandon the miserable practice
ol leaving manure to lie in the barn-yard
to waste one-half of its best qualities.

Direction for Whitewashing.
The return of spring makes us all
anxious to improve the appearance of our
surroundings, and in this endeavor there
is no way in which a little time and money
can be so advantageously applied as in
whitewashing, for it not only gives a fresh
and clean ellect but it also prevents the
decay of fences and out-houses, and kills
the small vermin which lurk about the
poultry-houses and stables. To be sure.
it is not as lasting as a coat of paint but
neither does it make so heavy an inroad
upon our purses, it is most cheaply pre
pared and easily applied.
A whitewash that will produce a glossy
appearance, ana win not mo on upon
every thing that comes in contact with it,
can be made by using skimmed milk in
stead of water for slacking the lime, and
making it of proper consistency.
When a ceiling has been badly black
ened it is well to add a little dissolved
indigo to the whitewash, the bluish tint
serving to hide the smoky surface. If
other colors than white are desired, they
can be made by adding different pigments
to tne wnitewash.
For stone color, four pounds of raw um
ber and two pounds of lamp-black to half
a bushel ot lime, t or a light pins,
Spanish brown can be stirred in until the
tint is correct t or a fawn color, add one
pound of Indian red. four pounds of urn
ber, and one pound of lamp-black, to half
a bushel of lime. Chrome yellow wil
produce a lemon-colored wash.
To make the whitewash, take half a
bushel of unslacked lime and slake it in a
cask with hot water or milk. To this add
one-half pound of whiting, one-pound of
glue dissolved in hot water, and a peck oi
salt dissolved in water.
For laying on the wash a pad. with
wire fixed across it, is needed to press off
the brush as it is lifted from the white
wash ; and in addition to a good white
wash brush, a paint-brush is needful to
use in corners and between the pickets ou

lake only a small quantity upon the brush,

which is now considered superior for nice
work. It is made from Paris white and
glue sizing. The proportion is twenty
pounds of the former to one pound of
glue, which is first dissolved in boiling
water and added to the whiting. The
mixture is then diluted with water and
added to the whiting. The mixture is
then diluted with water until of a creamy
thickness. It requires a little practice to
know how much water is needful, and it is
well to try a little at first so as not to make
it too thin.
Calcimine is the better coating for walls
covered with hard finish, and whitewash
is more suitable for those covered with
common lime mortar. Hearth and Home.

loose box, or stall, is preferable to tying
up with a halter. Clean out his stable
daily ; nothing is more hurtful to the feet
of a horse than to permit him to stand in
a pile of fermenting manure. With a
clean bed, and left loose in his stall, he
will, of his" own instinct, avoid lying in
filth, and much labor in cleaning will be
saved. Every night when the day's work
is done, wash his leet and legs tree lrom
mud and dirt and in winter clean off all ice
or snow. Cleanliness is an absolute pre
ventive of grease and other diseases which
commonly affect the feet and legs of
horses. Have handy m the stable a piece
of rough sacking, and rub his legs and
knee joints for a few minutes before leav
ing him tor the night A day s plowing
or harrowing over soft yielding soil is ex
cessively hard work for the legs both of
horse and man, and this plan of rubbing
with a coarse cloth is good tor either.

The Nutritive Value of Milk.
Dr. Oliver C. Wigoin, of Providence,
R. I., bears the following testimony to the
value of milk:
The nutritive value of milk, as compared
with other kinds of animal food, is not
generally appreciated. There is less dif
ference between the economical value of
milk and beefsteak (or eggs or hah) than is
commonly supposed. The quantity of
water in a good quality of milk is 80 per
cent, in round steak 7o per cent, in tatter
beef 00 per cent., in eggs about 63 per
cent From several analyses made last
winter I estimated sirloin steak (reckoning
loss from bone) at So cents a pound, as
dear as milk at 24 cents a quart ; round
steak, at 20 cents a pound, as dear as milk
at 14 cents a quart ; eggs at SO cents a
dozen, as dear as milk at 20 cents a quart
Many laborers who pay 17 cents for corned
beef would consider themselves hardlv
able to pay 10 cents for milk, when, in
fact they could as well afford to pay 15
cents. Milk is a most wholesome 'and
economical food, for either the rich or
poor. It ought to be more largely used.
If the money expended for veal and poik
were expended for milk, I doubt not it
would be an advantage both to the stom
ach and pocket especially during the
warm season. Relatively speaking, then.
milk at 10 cents, or even 12 cents a Quart.
the cheapest animal food that can be
used. Whether larmers can allord to pro
duce it cheaper is a matter for them to de
cide. It is very probable that were thev
ask 13 cents, a very large number of
poor people would refrain from its use
from mistaken notions of economy, not
withstanding they were excessive meat

A Day's Work.
In labor, as in most things, mankind are
prone to run to extremes, so that while on
the odc hand the community is alllicted
with a class of persons who seem to view
labor as a curse to be avoided, instead of
as the means of development and progress
it really is, there are others who try to ac
complish each day a greater task than they
have strength to perlorm. Yet there are
probably few men who ever attain the full
measure of success they might have se
cured had they worked in accordance
with the laws which govern their physical
and mental systems. Thug it happens
that most of the instances of so-called
death from over-work are, more strictly
speaking, cases in which nature has vindi
ea ted her broken law a The body is, after
all, the engine which drives the various
faculties and upon which they are all
chii fly dependent, for when the physical
system is once exhausted all power to
work ceases. If, therefore, a merchant or
professional man devotes himself so assid
uously to his work that while he is making
a constant drain upon his mind he utterly
neglects his body, he breaks down not
necessarily because he had more to do than
he was able to perform, but because he did
not know how to keep his engine in an
efficient working condition. In order to
secure success in any calling it is necessa
ry to concentrate on it all the powers of
the mind and body, but it is not wise to
work without intermission. Whoh some
recreation for a portion of each day and a
divergence of the thoughts from their or
dinary channels, refresh both the mind
and the body, and give the laborer renew
ed zest and power tor his work when he
returns to it
Where these physical laws are unknown
or neglected, active nervous men of deli
cate build commence the day with feelings
of lassitude and nervous debility which
they seek to dispel by the cse of strong
cotlee or some alcoholic stimulant thereby
aggravating the complaint which their
own negligence has produced. As the
result of this course of action, we meet in
all parts of the country business men ut
terly broken down in health at a season
when they should be in their prime. Some
of these unfortunates, it is true, have ac
cumulated money enough to live on the
re3t of their days, but what is life worth
after all its juices are dried up and all its
sources of youth and vigor irretrievably
sapped ? The movement toward shorten
ing the working hours in the shop and the
counting-room, the multiplication of tel
egraph lines and the various agencies for
the rapid communication of intelligence
and transaction of business, have so in
tensified the strain of business that the
number who break down under the pres
sure is constantly increasing. Not only is
tins the case among men engaged in busi
ness, but women everywhere, and especial
ly farmers' wives, are groaning under the
burden of household and family cares, and
where they are not relieved, are either
dying from exhaustion or losing their
minds and becoming inmates of asylums.
The remedy for these growing evils is
lor us to consider what is lairly a days
work for each laborer, and not to attempt
to perform more ourselves, or to require
more of others. It is impossible to state
definitely how much each individual is to
periorm in the working hours ot the day,
but it is safe to say that no one should
attempt or be required to do more than he
can rest from in eight hours' sleep, so as
to rise refreshed and fitted for another
tour of labor. .This may seem a con
tracted limit to ambitious souls, but it is a
safe rule to follow. By wise attention to
the needs of the body, and a constant
ell'ort to strengthen and develop it i
powers of work may be greatly increased
but still, if sleep does not refresh us for
renewed exertion, we laii to nceu the
monitions of nature at our peril.
In speaking on this subject Henry Ward
Beecher, who is a famous workereays : " I
have thus always tried, by a due and
faithful attention to both exercise and
recreation, to keep up the balance be
tween my physical and mental energies.
I hold that there must be a careful pro
portion maintained between these two, or
the man, however great his strength may
be, will soon break down." So, too, when
we examine the habits of life of William
Cullen Bryant the poet who, after
laborious life, is, at seventy-six, as active
and vigorous as many men twenty years
his junior, we Add exercise, simple food,
no stimulants, and plenty of sleep, the
secret of his longevity. The merchant
who draws more money out of his busi
ness than he puts in it will soon become
bankrupt, and the man who makes similar
drafts on his body, will sooner or later
come to a disastrous end. A day's work
for each day is a good motto, but we must
take care to be honest in the measure
ment and not require of ourselves greater
or less tasks than we are fitted to peitorm.
