STRAWBERRY FRIENDS.
" Fm sure if I lived in the country nd
had plenty of strawberries and rosea, I
should not be so stingy with them," said
Cip", good natured, thoughtless Mrs
ton to a morning caller, who had been
entertaining her with an account of the
"meannau and inhotpitality," as she
termed it, of a mutual friend, who had re
moved to a small suburban home in their
vicinity. ,
"Ho, I'm certain you wouldn't; even
country life could not make you parsimo
nious, replied the visitor. "It does
seem, though, as if farmers were the most
penurious people in the world ; all they
have to do is to plant and reap, and
make us city people pay them their prices
for it
"I've always thought I should enjoy
country life," replied the hostess, " we're
all so food of milk, and cream, and fresh
butter, and buttermilk, and berries; and
then vegetables taste so much better
when gathered fresh for the table, than
when they have been exposed for days in
the sunny windows of hucksters and gro
cers. 1 am endeavoring to persuade Mr.
Mantou to purchase a lovely little place a
few miles out, where we can enjoy those
comtorts of life without paying for them.
The children and I love so to gather ber
ries fresh from the bush, and I do enjoy
skimming milk and taking up the rich
yellow, newly-churned butter, and then
the delicious buttermilk ; it fairly makes
my mouth water to think of it. O, I
do think country life perfectly charm-
TLg.n
"Delightful," echoed the friend, "and
I only hope Mr. Mauton will be persuaded
to purchise in the country, so that I can
have one nice cool place to visit in such
dry, dusty, hot weather as this." And
with this, to say the least, selfish remark,
she took her leave.
Mrs. Man ton, true to her word, impor
tuned her husband continually, to pur
chase the suburban home in question,
until he wearied of the subject Never
theless she persuaded him that no air was
equal to country air, no fruit or berries or
vegetables, or milk, or cream, or butter,
equal to those obtained from one's own
premises without expense, and to cap the
climax, no life equal to country life, lie
had his misgiving at times about the prac
ticability of his schemts, as his business
was estaolishei in the city and he could
give no attention to a farm, however
small, but Mrs. Manton settled that ques
tion by replying that she and the chidren
could manage it admirably, and it would
be such a pleasure to drive him back and
forth to the city, morning and evening;
the ride alone would be the best panacea
for illness.
Thus after a time he came to regard the
matter through his wife's spectacles, and
the purchase was mde toward the close
of the winter, and the first days of spring
found the family pleasantly domiciled iu
their new home. Mrs. MaDton had read
Mr. Saealy's work entitled Ten Acres
E jough For a Farm," and as she did not
wish a farm, considered five quite enough
for her purpose. Her house was in good
repair, and the garden fruit and shrubbery
had been caret uily tended the previous
year by a tenant, so that she loosed for
ward to a very happy summer.
W ith the approach of warm weather
came work enough, but a steady man who
understood the care of a garden, was en
gaged to do all the rough work and Mrs.
Manion and her two boys bravely kept
their word and weeded and hoed dilgently
late and early. The fruit blossomed finely
and gave promise of an abundant harvest
The season, however, happened to be a
very dry one, and many blossoms failed to
mature. Berries, particularly, felt the ef
fect of the drought, still there was a suffi
nient supply for the table fresh from the
vines, and hopeful Mrs. Man ton reasoned
that by a little self denial there would be a
few to can and preserve for winter stores.
With the labor occasioned by the care
and cultivation of a flower and fruit gar
den, the care of milk, butter-making, the
ordinary family housework, and the time
occupkd in conveying Mr. Manton to and
from his place of business, Mrs. Manton
founi but l&le time for visiting. Country
life, while it brought her most of the lux
vrie8 in which she so delighted, also
brought with it a great abundauce of work,
more than she had ever expected. It was
difficult to keep servants, and she was
often forced to do all her work with only
the aid of her children and a day's help
occasionally. Still she did not complain ;
it had bee her wish to remove in ,the
country and she was determined to meet
annoyances and difficulties bravely. Her
puny, delicate boys were growing strong
and athletic, and she herself enjoyed ro
bust health. She was well aware that in
a pecuniary view farming had thus far en
tirely failed to pay, for every pound of
butter that was churned and every quart
of berries that were gathered, had cost as
much as they could have been purchased
for at the hucksters and grocers in the
city. She could not understand how it
was, but it was nevertheless a fact, and
she solaced herself with the reflection
that the season was an unusually dry one
and that she did not yet fully understand
managing her new situiaton. But she
ceased to blame farmers for being parsi
monious, and learned that nothing grew
spontaneously, but required constant
lab ir and care from the time the seed was
planted until fruition and harvest
Her city friends had waiter impatiently
for an invitation to pay her and extended
visit Wiin the advent of June came
warm and dusty weather, which caused
the denizens of the crowded city to long
for the enjoyment of rambles over green
fields and walks beneath the shadows of
the woods and orchards. One Monday
morning Mrs. Linton said to her husband
at the breakfast table, " My dear, I think
Mrs. Manton has forgotten to invite us to
pass a few days with her during straw
berry time. The berries are almost gone
and I think I will wait no longer fur a
special invitation, for I'm sure she'll be
glad to see us, so order a hack at once
and HI take the children and spend the
week, and when Bridget has finished her
washing, she can cleau house as I hid in
tended she should do, when I was to make
the visit"
Mrs. Manton's washing was done, and,
tired with her morning's work, she had
just set out a picked-up lunch for the fam
ily dinner, intending to gather strawberries
during the afternoon for preserving. A
shower had fallen a few days previous, and
developed the last growth of the berries,
promising a greater yield thus late in the
season than had been expected. The -on-expected
arrival of Mrs. Linton, her three
children (the youngest but four years old),
and a nurse-girl, at this juncture, caused
some emotion, not to say disappointment
But cheery Mrs. Manton made the best of
it, as she did of everything. " It is so for
tunate," said she to herself, " that I have a
girl in the kitchen ; for though not a very
good one, she is better than none, and will
enable me togive some time to entertain
ing Mrs. Linton. I will delay gathering
the berries until evening, and lay aside the
ironing until next week." She was really
glad to see her friend, and after making
some additional preparations for tea, seat
ed herself ithher in the cool, airy par
lor, to have a sodsi--itwhuMrs. !
ton's children and their nurse, anxious to
make the most of the country, went out to
walk.
Just beforxea they returned, covered
with strawberry stains from head to foot,
Julia, the eldest, having her apron full of
the choicest verbenas, roses and gerani
ums. Mrs. Manton had expended many
an hour of labor upon these flowers. They
were newly planted, had grown slowly,
and during the dry- weather had been daily
watered, and now, in return for all the Are
they had received, yielded their first lone
ly blossoms. .
" See, mother, what beautiful flowers !"
said Julia. 44 Yes, darling," was the re
ply, "isn't it delightful to visit in the
country. I really never saw such lovely
geraniums, Mrs. Manton."
It required an effort for the latter lady
to repress her tears, and she was about to
reply when Georgy, her youngest son,
burst into the room, saying, " O, mother,
mother, Julia Linton has picked all the
veabenas and geraniums, and the roses,
too. I told her you wouldn't let me pick
a single one, but she never- minded and
picked and picked them all." '
"I'm real sorry Julia gathered your
flowers, Mrs. Manton," said her mother,
"but really, the dear child is so fond of
flowers you must forgive her, they are so
dear in the city, we seldom indulge our
selves in the luxury of a bouquet, for there
are so many more necessary things re
quired, and so many ways for money."
Yes," answered Mrs. Manton, " there
are many ways for money, certainly ; but
ihe cultivators of flowers are very poorly
paid, t heir products require the utmost
labor, care and skill. Since I have culti
vated flowers myself, I will never again
begrudge the price of a bouquet If flow
ers are not a necessity, they sweeten life's
thorny pathway, and much money is ix
pendeil upon ribbons and needless finery
which might better be paid for them."
" Is tnat so f I never dreamed it was
much trouble to rear flowers," replied Mrs.
Linton.
After tea Mrs. Manton said to her
friend, " If you will excuse me now, I will
go and gather strawberries for breakfast
and for preserving to-morrow."
" O, that reminds me," was the reply,
"that I have brought some sugar, preserv
ing jars and cans with me; I thought as
you raised your own strawberries, you
would not miss enough for my family from
your vines."
" The season has not been a propitious
one for berries, nevertheless I will share
what I have with you," replied the hospita
ble hostess.
Upon going to the si rav.'bcrry beds, they
found them in a sad condition. The music
girl and Mrs. Linton's three children had
preceded thein, aud bad tramped all over
the beds, bruised aud jammed the ripe ber
ries, aud trodden the green ones into tho
ground, so that but few could come toper
lection, and those few Mrs. Linton pre
served for her own use, apologizing for so
doing by saying "Strawberries are so dear
in the city and as you raise your own, they
cost you nothing, and juu must have
f asted upon thuin until they lost their
relish."
1'he Antwerp raspberries were just
ripening and the children paid their at
tention to them next much in the same
manner as they tad dne to the strawber
ries, and, to make a long story short,
when they retiuned to their city home at
the close of the wek, the Manton
grounds looked as though a hurricane had
swept over them. Not a flower remained
to beautify the garden, the young shrub
bery was broken, the strawberry beds
ruined for the season, the raspberry bushes
broken ofl, etc., etc.
It is madness to say that when her city
friends took their departure, Mrs. Manton
offered up a silent prayer of thanksgiving
aud felt relieved at the thought that
another year must pass before she could
be called upon to entertain any more
strawberry friends, yet as the summer and
autumn waned, her patience was often
abused with similar inconsiderate visitors,
who acted upon the theory that the good
things of the country grew spontaneously,
and that country peor le who refuse to di
vide them free gratis, with their city
friends, are a small parsimonious set
Header, this is an o'tr true tale, and its
moral would point out to those who have
no experience iu horticultural and agricul
tural productions how little they really
know of the labor requisite to bring to
perfection those good gifts of Nature
which they fancy are indigenous to rural
air and country soil. Tultdo Blade.
Guess Work and Real Work.
" I guess that will work," says A. "I
will try it and see." " This will work,"
says B, " provided that in my reasoning I
have not omitted any element essential as
one of the -premises upon which I bnild
my reasoning and calculations. I will try
it and see whether I have omitted any es
sential." A represents a large class, and B a
smaller class, of men, which together
make up the entire group of humanity.
Individuals of the first class sometimes
blunder upon successful inventions, some
times, by lucky hits, make fortunes, some
times entertain correct views. But in all
that they do there is an element of uncer
tainty, a feeling of insecurity that is never
allajed except by final results. In blun
dering along, tbey expend money and
time, which frequently are more valuable
than what they can hope to obtain by any
success they can achieve. They wander
off into by-paths, and finding they are
wrong, guess another is right, and so keep
on guessing through life, sometimes guess
ing right, sometimes wrong, sometimes
reaching that which they sought but
oftener fain to content themselves with
something they did not contemplate in
the outset of their career.
They are the men wiio expend all their
capital in erecting factories, without know
ing where the money will come from for
stock and machinery. They are the men
who, when an invention is only half com
pleted, stake their all upon its success, re
gardless of future contingencies for which
they can foresee no provision, iney are
the men who give credit without good se
curity ; in short they are the men who
strew the shore's of lifs's great sea with
wrecks, broken up and helpless; to be
pitied, but never repaired.
It is a pleasure to tura from this sad pic
ture to another and brighter phase of hu
man character, to the ciass, B, the mem
bers of which never count chickens in the
shell ; to the men who never guess but
reason, step by step, to their conclusions,
the men who have invented the machines
and processes that have revolutionized the
world's industry, the men who have de
veloped science and art Wherever they
are found, whether in schools, pulpits,
counting houses, or work-shops, they are
doing the real solid brainwork of the
world.
They live in no fool's paradise. No
false haloes cluster around the realities of
life to blind them. No superstition is ac
cepted by them as a substitute for a belief
founded upon facts and reason. By them
every proposition is scrutinized with rigor,
and nothing bearing the semblance of
truth, but fcUse under the surface, is al
lowed to pass unchallenged.
""" They are men who, kuowing truth nny
exiet in human life and character, are not
suspicious without reason, but who never
theless are seldom deceived. Their faith
in truth is not destroyed by their own
falseness. They seek truth for its own
sake, and search for it eagerly and long,
early and late, but never guess at it Their
search is thorough, systematic and organ
ized. They are slow to assent to anything
laid down as a general principle, but once
assenting, are steadfast in their adherence,
for their belief is founded upon knowl
edge, not guess-work.
The age is at present proline ot this class
of men, and their labors are preparing the
wy for final emancipation of the race
irom giant superstitions, ana tiie strong
chains of ignorance. The generality of
mankind think the world very far ad
vanced in civilization. Indeed, a popular
but superficial writer has recently asserted
that the world is suffering from over civ
ilization ; but the class of men we have de
scribed, guessing at nothing, see that only
the twilight has dawned upon the civiliza
tion of the ages to come. Knowing that
their eyes shall never behold that brilliant
epoch in the history of mankind, they still
labor for the generations to come, blessing
the present generation as welL
Well will it be when all men are no
longer cantent with guessing, but strive to
krow, not in the sens of passive accept
ance uf creeds and formulje, framed or
thought out by others, bet thought out by
each individual. For when all men really
thi k for themselves, and act upon their
conclusions, there will be an end to the
poverty, drunkenness, crime, and most of
the diseases which now curse the human
race. Scientific American.
"Gris,"the humorous correspondent
of the Cincinnati Timet and Chronicle, has

Floating or Rowing.
It maybe very pleasant to some it is
certainly a very lazy life, this
"Floating down th rlber.
On de O-hl-o."
The fact is. we Hoot too much, and we
row too little. It is this floating, instead of
rowing, which draws us on ana on to
habits of indolence, unthrift, helplessness.
"I couldn't help it" "I can't" simply
mean floating. "I can" and "I will,"
mean routing. A young man will start out
in life, resolved on having an easy time. He
keeps this as he keeps no other resolution.
He shuns real work, and seeks a position
as bar-tender in a drinking saloon, or as a
stage or carriage driver, so that he can
ride rather than walk ; or he seeks a situa
tion as keeper of a toll-gate it is not hard
word to take and make change, you know.
Or, failing this, he will offer his service to
exhibit a horse, a machine, or take a situ
ation in the custom house, where the du
ties are light hours short, and pay enough
to keep him in liauor. tobacco and second
hand clothing, lie is not alwaysexpected
to pay his board, for is not his "society" an
ample equivalent for what he eats, and a
place to sleep r He sings songs, piays on
a fiddle, tells stories, and is entertaining.
Another young man of like aspirations
once joined a circus company, and traveled
for a time ; but it was too hard work, this
" rmllins up stakes, and changing places
so often. The old anecdotes repeated by
the clown were learned by heart and as
he was accustomed to do, were " fired off "
for the amusement of stable-boys, loafers.
bar-room loungers, and other idlers. At
oae time he concluded that he would go
ou a whaling voyage. Here, he thought,
was an opportunity tor a long and lazy
voyage, with plenty to eat, and but little
work. He returned after a three years'
trip, sharing the luck of all lazy fellows,
having got more experience than oil. He
returned once more to his friends, and now
relates his hardships, and begs lor sympa
thy and support foor fellow, the fates
are against him, and he resigns himself to
a season of repose. When rallied about
what he intends to do in the luture, he re
plies. "I have nothing in view ; " or " Busi
ness is dull ; there is no work to be done ;
but if there were ever so much, the pay is
verypcor; and while the 'old man has
anything left 1 preler to stay with him; 1
may as well have it as any one. " " But do
you not intend to marry and have a home
of your own?" "No; I can scarcely
support myself, to say nothing of support
ing a family. It costs me nearly all the
change I can pick up for tobacco and some
thing to drink." Poor fellow ! what will
he do for a home when the old folks de
part ? He has learned no trade ; knows
little or nothing ot business, and is float
ing on towards the poorhouse.
The young man who starts out in life in
tent on " working his way up," expects to
climb hills, overcome dimculties, endure
defeats, suffer reverses, and row against
tide, currents and breakers. But he will
never float. He hears the roar ot the cata
ract in the distance, and exerts himself to
keep clear of it It is the lazy floating
boatman who is carried over !
Parents owe it to their children to wake
up, call out and develop the latent powers
with which they are endowed. We grant
that the nrst duty, or Dusiness, or privilege,
of childhood is to grow to grow bodily
rather than to overtask their brains or
nerves. Still, they may must be trained
to use their faculties in order to make
headway in Hie. Over-indulgence is as
fatal as over-work. Every boy and every
girl should be thoroughly impressed with
the fact that self-helpfulness is a duty, that

Give young children short hours for

children, stand by them, encourage, and

colt, or you spoil the horse. Teach chil
dren that there is real merit in achieve

another; and when the boy becomes a
man, he will go through, not around, a
hard task. He will tunnel the mountain,
when in his way, or force his way "up the
rapids," instead of lying on his oars and
floating down tha stream. It requires en
ergy combativeness, firmness, executive-
ness, and ambition to excel to insure suc

qualities leaves tne miserable creature
among pitiable imbeciles and helpless
paupers.
Young man, whither are you tending?
Are you standing stilL drifting on the

Are you already a miserable slave to nasty

A Chinese Will.
A Chinaman died, leaving his property
to his three sons, as follows : To Fum
Hum, his eldest, one-half thereof ; Nu-Pin
bis second son, one-third thereof; and to
Dine-Uat, his youngest one-ninth there
of. When the property was inventoried,
it was found to consist of nothing more
nor less than seventeen elephants ; and it
puzzled these three heirs to decide how to
divide the property according to the terms
of the will, without chopping up the
seventeen elephants, and thereby seriously
impair their value. Finally they applied
to a wise neighbor, bum-Punk, lor advice.
Sum-Punk had an elephant of his own.
He drove it into the yard with the seven
teen and said, "Now we will suppose that
your father has left these eighteen ele
phants. Fum Hum, take your half and
depart" bo a um-rium took his nine ele
phants and went his way. "Now. Nu-
Pin," said the wise man, "take your third
aid git So IN u-I'm took his elephants
and traveled. "Now, Ding-Bat," said the
wise man, " take your ninth and begone."
oo Ding Bat took two elephants and ab
squatulated. Then Sum Punk took his
own elephant aud drove home again.
Query : Was the property divided accord
ing to the will ?
Remedy for Rattlesnake Bite.
Last summer, while in Kansas, I learn
ed of a certain remedy for the bite of the
rattlesnake. As it may benefit some one
of your numerous readers who may find
that he is a victim to the venomous bite, I
herewith send the cure with the advice to
try it: Make a poultice of fresh cow
manure and apply to the wound ; change
every half hour. A thorough trial of this
remedy was made on the person of a little
girl living with Mrs. Sperry, of Hiawatha,
Brown County, Kansas. This little girl
had been bitten on the arm ; the doctor
was sent for, trie ! his remedies, and fail
ed. The child's arm and body swelled
rapidly, began to turn black, and the child
appeared to be going into convulsions,
when a woman from quite a distance, hear
ing of the case, came and advised the trial
of this remedy. They tried It as a last re
sort, and it acted like a charm; convul
sions subsided, swelling went down, black
ness disappeared, the child recovered en
tirely from all effects, and is now living as
healthy as any other child not bitten. It
might not act on another the same, but it
might be used in connection with internal
remedies or as a last resort, as it was in
this case. Cor. Sural JVete Yorker.

History of Arms.
BY THE "FAT CONTRIBUTOR."
Thk history of arms would be interest
ing, properly handled. I never was an
adept at handling arms. I think I could
handle my legs much better in an emer
gency. The first arm of which there appears to
have been any record was a club Cain ad
ministered to his brother on the occasion
of a family difficulty that is historic. Not
withstanding the vast improvement that
has been made in arms since that early
day, clubs are frequently trumps yet The
club does not always come to the man,
but the man oes to the "Club" greatly to
the disgust of his wife, if he has one. In
such cases clubs are more offensive than
defensive.
Political clubs are wielded to demolish
opposing candidates, and are often a very
effective weapon. The reason Women's
Rights clubs break up so often is because
every woman wants to ield it her own
individual self
The spear seems to have succeeded the
club as an arm. Mankind growing sharp
er, they sharpened the primitive club to a
point and in place of bluntly beating one
over the head with a blunt end, they sci
entifically thrust each otlicr through and
through called, iu the classic language
of the period, going through a man. This
was when they first began to bring warfare
down to a fine point
Then came bows and arrows. They
were suggested by a young lady too indo
lent to hurl her spear, who got her beau to
hurl it for her. In those days young ladies
never went out unaccompanied by their
beaux aud arrows. Beaux have never
been entirely superseded for ladies' arms
since their introduction hardly waiting
tor an introduction sometimes. This is
agreeable to the beaux, an' arrows the
question down considerably.
The tomahawk is classed among the
primitive weapons. It was invented by
au Iudian named Tommy who (toma)
hawked it about the American forests. It
was known in Shukspcar's day. Hamlet
says: "I know a tomahawk Irom a hand
saw." The fcalping-knife usually accompanies
the above weapon by way of skle-ar jl
As an invigorator for bringing out the
hair it has never been excelled by any of
the hair tonics.
Slings have been popular in their day,
their success depending a good deal on
who got them up. Goliah was so struck
with one that he never afterwards took
anything else. Besides this implement
for slinging stones, the ancients had a ma
chine for throwing mud. Mud throwing
has never goue out altogether. It is con
fined for the most part to a certain class of
newspapers.
Missiles of various descriptions besides
the above have been in vogue from time to
time, not forgetting the mistleto-bough.
I never hear a dng's bow-wow at night
without feeling an overpowering inclina
tion to send a miss'le-to-bow, in the shape
of a brick or paving-stone.
The discovery of gunpowder divides
arms into two classes, ancient and modern.
(Gunpowder, it will be remembered, was
discovered under the Parliament House
in the days of Guy Fawkes.) The ancient
Greek fought with the pike, and the Ro
mans with the javelin. I may, remark, in
cidentally, that the Cincinnatians fought
with the Pike for some time, but the Pike
has handsomely captured them at last
Swords were never the most effective
arm. Richelieu said derisively, " The pen
is mightier than the sword." He forgot
old cheese. That is frequently mite-icr
than pen and sword together.
Daggers have figured conspicuously in
the afl-iire, as well as the affrays, of men,
and changed the course ot history fre
quently. A dagger thrust overthrew Ciesar
as the bristling arms of hostile legions
could not Macbeth's bloody imaginings
took the form of a dagger. Instead of
sii) ing, however, "Is this a dagger that
1 see before me ?" his exact words should
have been, under the circumstances, " Is
this a dagger so persistently after me ?
Gunpowder effected an entire revolution
in the constructiou and use of arms.
Spears, mauls, javelins and the like arc
obsolete. Swords are merely ornamental,
and bayonets rarely appealed to. Bayonets
may think, but gunpowder does the talk
ing. Artillery aud musketry settle the
question when diplomacy can't, and per
cussion caps the climax! Cincinnati

Tub cutting of glass, says the Technolo
gist, is an operation so frequently put in
practice in the laboratory, that any simple
means of effecting it is sure to run the
rounds or the press as soon as published.
Almost all the methods in common use
are very old. Of course, for cutting flat
glass, such as window panes, the diamond
is the best agent For cutting rounds, or
ovals, out of flat glass, the diamond is the
best tool; and if the operator has no dia
mond, it will always pay to carry the job
to a glazier, rather than to waste time and
make a poor job by other and inferior
means. When, however, it is required to
cut off a very little from a circle or oval.
the diamond is not available except in
very skillful hands. In this case, a pair of
pliers, or very dull scissors, is the best
tool, and the cutting is best performed
under wjter. A little practice will enable
the operator to shape a small round, or
oval, with great rapidity, ease and preci
sion. When bottles or flasks are to be cut
the diamond is still the best tool in skill
ful hands; but ordinary operators will
succeed best with pastiles, or a red-hot
poker. We prefer the latter, as being the
most easily obtained, aud the most rfficient ;
and we have never found any difficulty in
cutting off broken flasks so as to make
dishes, or to carry a cut spirally round a
long Dottle, so as to cut it m the form or a
corkscrew. And, by the way, when so cut,
glass exhibits considerable elasticity, and
the spiral may be elongated like a ringlet
The process is very simple. The line of
the cut should be marked by chalk, or by
pasting a thin strip of paper alongside of
iv ; men mase a me mam to commence me
cut; apply the hot iron, and a crack will
start; and this crack will follow the iron
wherever we choose to lead it
For drilling holes in glass, a common
steel drill, well made and tempered, is the
best tool. The steel should be worked at
a low temperature, so as to be sure not to
burn it, and then tempered as hard as pos
sible, in either murcury or a bath of salt
water that has been well boiled. Such a
drill will go through glass very rapidly, If
kept well moistened. A good liquid for
moistening such drills is turpentine, in
which some camphor has been dissolved,
This was the lubricator recommended by
Griffin in his work on chemical manipula
tion, and it has been frequently published
since. Diluted sulphuric acid is equally
good, if not better ; and we have found
carbolic acid singularly efficient
It is stated that at Berlin, glass castings
for pump barrels, etc, are drilled, plant id,
and bored, like iron ones, and in the same
lathes and machines, by the aid of sul
phuric acid.
A little practice with these different
plans will enable the operator to cut and
work glass as easily as brass or iron.
Turning Down Green Crops.
In has got into the papers that plowing
down green crops produces acid in the
soil from the decomposition which is hurt
ful to crops ; that it is better to turn under
when the crop is matured, that the decom
position will then be slower, and no hurt
will result
Tbis is doubtless true with some soils
those deficient iu alkaline matter. But
as most soils contain lime and potash and
other kindred materials, this acid is not
only harmeless but beneficial, as it unites
with the alkalis making plant food, which
otherwise might lie as it already has for
ages, useless to vegetation.
It is for this reason that the turning
under of green crops is highly recom
mended, not because its chemical action is
known, but because experience has demon
strated its advantage. The great majority
of cases have demonstrated that it is a
good thing to turn down the full, blossom
ing, succulent crop. The alkalis are most
always present in some form to take up
and unite with the acid. In soils where
the acids remain free, would it not be well
to sprinkle the clover with line before
Slowing, or previously apply it to the soil ?
i such a case, lime would be a benefit in
any event, as the soil requires it. Utica

A physician of great note has said:
" Tobacco has a tendency to soften and

way uses tobacco constantly, is never

Ashes of Hard and Soft Wcod.
It is generally supposed that ashes oi piue
wood are not so rich in alkalies as those
of hard wood. Dr. Data says, in his
Muck Manual: "In equal weights, pine
ash affords four times more alkali than the
ash of hard wood." At the same time, a
bushel of hard wood ashes yields more
alkali than a bushel of pine wood ashes,
the ash or the pine being much the lignt-
est According to analysis, only about 13
quarts in a hundred of hard wood ashes
are soluble.

Makkktixo Milk. Milk, properly

sweet Irom twenty-four to thirty-six hours
in hot weather. At least such is the testi
meny of Orauge County dairymen, who
have long been engaged in furnishing
milk for the New York market Great
care should be taken to cleans the cans and
keep them perfectly sweet They must
be thoroughly scalded out with boiling
water, and be sure that the water is boiling
hot when applied. Well made cans, pro
perly cared for, will last three or four
years, and perhaps longer. The time a
can will last depends ot course upon its
usage. Bad usage may bandit to pieces in
a year. The milk cans on some roads get

Sc ientific Farming consists altogether
arid solely in deriving the greatest pos
sible profit from the soil. Lessen the
labor and increase the yield, is the sum of
the wnole. lo do this, everything must
be done at the right time, and in the best
manner. By draining, the water must be
got rid of; by cultivation, weeds must be
destroyed ; by manure, the soil must be en
riched ; by rotation of crops, the largest
yield must be secured ; by improved stock.
the food must be economized and made of
more value ; and the how-to do all-this is
the sum and substance of agricultural
science. Books on farming relate the ex
perience on successful men, the ex pen
ments they have made, and the results
they have attained. Any and every larm
er, who, by the use of his reasoning
powers, is enabled to raise one bushel of
corn per acre more than he has hitherto
done, by improved methods, is a scientific
farmer, however much he may disown the
name ; and not only has he done a good
thing tor nimseii, but the world at large is,
to some extent better for his efforts and
tuccess ; his mission, as a man, has been
to that extent fulfilled, and he will leave
the world better than he found it Hearth
and Home.
Preservation of Eggs.
This subject has recently attracted
great deal of attention, and many methods
of effecting it have been published, though
none is altogether perfect for the simple
reason that the true cause of the spoiling
ot the eggs is either unknown by those
who have attempted to furnish us with
directions, or has been lost sight of by
them. There are two efficient causes for
the spoiling of eggs, and, unless avoided,
we cannot hope for success. The first is
exposure to a high temperature, and the
other is access ot air. it may be safely
amrined mat at a temperature Delow li
nearly all changes cease in organic bodies,
while very few organic substances or pro
ducts will bear a continual exposure to a
temperature above 00. The freezing
point is rather too low for the preservation
of eggs in good condition, as freezing
affects the flavor unfavorably ; but if we
dee ire to preserve eggs in the best manner,
we must keep them cool say at a temper
ature Delow ou-', it possible, a temperature
whi.his frequently maintained in good
cellars.
But it will be no use to place the eggs
in a cool cellar u they have been previous
ly exposed for hours to a temperature of
over UJ s. 1 he collection of the eggs must
therefore, in the nrst place, engage our at
tention. Now it has been well known
that hens are most incliued to set in May,
June and July, and that, during these
months, the eggs are peculiarly liable to
be sat upon by brooding hens. On the
other hand, during August and subse
quently, the tendency to brood is not so
stiong, and the eggs are less liable to be
injured.
Those who raise poultry, and especially
those who keep fowls for the sake of their
eggs, commit a great error when they fail
to remove from their yard those inclined
to set and which consequently take every
opportunity of warming the eggs in the
nests. If any one will attempt to preserve
eggs that have been subjected to the hatch
ing process for one or two days, he will
disco vi r the force of this statement
Kohler, of Germany, who possesses an
extensive poultry establishment and who,
every winter, preserves thousands of eggs
without ever losing one, has recently pub
lished an account of his method of p-o-ceeding,
and has given the following rules
for securing favorable results :
1. The nest must be placed in a cool po
sition. 2. The fowls that show a tendency
to set must be removed at once, and placed
in separate enclosures until this propensity
has left them. 3. If many hens are con
fined in the same enclosure, or use the
same nests for laying their eggs, the eggs
ought to be removed from the nest several
times a day. 4. The eggs ought to be as
sorted according to age, and preserved in
boxes with covers always partially open.
These boxes must be kept in a cool, airy,
and perfectly dry place. 5. At the begin
ning 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 the frost 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
to- preserving eggs. The number of these
recipes is almost unlimited. Some ret on
mend the use of lard or butter, which,
when rubbed over the eggs, tills the pores.
excludes the air, and prevents the egg-j
from drying out
That there are powerful causes in the
spoiling of eggs is easily proved, for the
time tnat nas eiapeeu siuce me egg wab
laid may be roughly estimated by taking
its Fpecific gravity.
If we dissolve common salt Iu water at
the rate of 3 ounces of salt in 25 of water,
it will be found that freshly laid eggs will
just sink in this solution. An e that
has been kept for one day will hardly sink I
to the bottom; at three days old it will I
float in the liquid, and when five days old
it will float on the suriace, ire proportion
elevated above the surface being in pro-1
portion to its age. These phenomena are .
caused by the drying out of the eggs j and
the extent to wnicn tney iaae piacr iu a
given time depends somewhat on the
weather. Smearing the eggs with lard or
butter prevents this; but these oily mat
ters are apt to become rancid, and tii s
destroy the flavor of thee. gs. Dippicg

How We Used to be Physicked.
Who does not remember the tlmo when spring
purgation was considered indispensable to sum
mer health!1 No matter for wry faces, the inevita
ble salts and fenna, rhubarb, or calomel and Jalap,
mnst be administered. Thcee ''spring medicinea,"
the youngsters were told, were to keep them hale
and hearty during the summer. We all know now
that this was a fallacy ; that new Yit?or, not deple
tion, is what is required at the commencement of
the summer solstice. As a preparation for the en
ervating effects of oppressive summer weather, a
course of Hoe etters Stomach Bitters is highly
expedient. Tbis famous vegetable preparation
has three prominent properties: It renovates, pa
rifles, and regulates all the functions of the body,
It is composed exclusively of pure vegetable pro
ductions, viz: the essential principle of M ononga
hela Kye, and the most efficacious tonic and alter
alive roots, barks, and gums known to tbe medl
cal botanbts. Hence, It Is an absolutely safemed
tcine, and no tincture of tbe Piiannacopoeia can
compare with it, either in purity, or in tbe variety
of its objects, and its com pre bene ire results.
Happily for mankind, the theory that it was neces
sary to prostrate a patient in order to cure him, is
forever exploded, and the true philosophical doc
trine, that visor is the great antagonist of disease,
has taken its place. Hostetter's Bitters is an in
Tiiorant, sod hence it is the proper medicine for
the feeble at this most trying season of the year.
Be sure that yon obtain the genuine article, as
there are innumerable vile imitations in the mar
ket. Look to the ornamental stamp, the engraved
latwh and the name blown into the g1as. Uoe let
