Whose deeds, hair-breadth escapes and
peculiar life, the rages of romance are
filled. The person to whom we refer is no
less a character than "Camanche Bill,"
who is reputed to be the slayer of no less
than one nun area ana eighty-three Indi
ans. He has been nine years on the plains,
part of which time he has been in the
employ of the government as a scout. He
has hunted and killed Indians for the
Eleasore and sweets of revenge, and
unted and trapped of necessity. He is
now on his return to his old life in the
West, having been on a visit to his early
home in Minnesota. He is about twenty
eight years of age, of slender build, sandy
complexion, with a profusion of hair that
he wears long on the neck. His dress is a
pair of buckskin pants, ornamented from
the outer seams with a row of steel buttons,
a coarse shirt, an old coat and a broad
brimmed hat. His eye is piercing keen,
and he has a grip like a dozen blacksmiths.
in response to our questions he said :
"My name is George W. Porter. I
have been on the plains since 01 I was

Sioux that had her a long time, and she

was in '65, and then she looked just like

" What did they do with you ?"
" " They marched about twenty-five miles
to their camp, and there they stripped us
of everything we had, and tied us up to a
stake, and let the women poind ns with

days. We were tied with buckskin thontrs.
and one night it rained, and we slipped out

Tnatruehomethewhole house ought
to belong to the family, and be occupied
by them. There ought to be spare cham
bers for the gwwts, and room for hospi
tality, but there should be no shut cham
bers or shrt parlors, sequestered from all
domestic use. There should be no mys
teries in the home, no place of oracle
tJxjre. Every part of the houso, from
cellar to garret, should be open and known,
not only lighted and ventilated, ,at visited!
too, by every member of tr.e household!
In a real home the family '.dwavs use the
best part of their housaad fa
whole of it They go. in the front door,
as well as at the bk door b
the wide stairs M weU M by the nar
row staircr, and they use the solt cush
ions, damask and the velvet, as well as
lne cane seat and the straw matting. In a
genuine house no part or appendage of
the house ought to be too good for those
who are members of the family. It is well
in the home that each member should
have his own retreat, his own chamber,
the daughters and the sons and the ser
vants, but not well that there should be no
feeling of common right in the house.
And a good home is not within the
walls of the house. The first home of the
first family was not in a house at all, but
in a garden. To realize the home now
there ought to be a garden attached to it,
some space open to the sky in which green
things and bright things may grow, and
the family may enjoy God's sunlight to-
geiner. Doras aina oi a garden every
true home ought to have, a clear space in
front or in rear or around.
Every well ordered home will have a
library. Until this in some form comes
into the house it has not the right to be
called more than a lodging-house, or an
eating-house, however sumptuously it may
be furnished. How many bocks are ne
cessary to make a library we shall not
venture to say, or whether the old Puritan
measure of the Bib'.e, the dictionary and
spelling-book is 'u be taken as the unit,
or rather iTiity in Unity. Books enough
to meet ordinary need of intercourse
and conversation and reference, " the stand
i d works," enough to give the impression
of culture and intelligence; home must
have these, even if it has to spare some
physical comforts to get them. Books in
the house are a binding influence between
members of the family, the means of dis
persing the clouds, making rainy days
useful, and enlivening hours of solitude.
And in a true home the library will not
be "stowed away" in a closet or dark
room, but will be in the center of the house,
in the meeting-place of the family, where
the young and old together catch" inspira
tion in its gathered hoard. In the true
home the library will be the favorite "sit
Music there ought to be in every home ;
not only the music of a mother "singing
to her clean, fat rosy babe," which the
Radical Cobbett so mnch glorifies, but the
music of consenting voices and consenting
iiarps. The head of the house may be a
xxi steward without any musical enow-
:0 ee, but the true father will know more
tha.n the "two tunes, between which he
cannot decide, when he hears his daughter
strike the keys. The best sentiment of
home connects itself from infancy to age
with the voice of music.
And home is more fully realized when
all the family are together. There is a
painful absurdity in talking of the pleas
ure of home when the children of the
house are scattered, or the parents are con
tinually absent A father who spends all
his time in his shop or in his club, except
the hours of the night in which he sleeps,
or the minutes which he eives tor meals,
knows nothing of the satisfaction of home.
lnis is one ot the solecisms or American
life, that men of wealth lavish so much
upon their houses, but are in these houses
so little. The children, too, .are sent
away to bearding schools or to Europe,
and three-quarters of the great house re
main unoccupied. Of course, m the pas
sage of life and the changes of fortune, it
is inevitable that the family circle should
be broxen up. The lone widow, whose
children have gone away from her as they
married and settled in life, may speak of
her ' home " as the place where she nas
lived so long, though how no one is with
her there. The forms of the departed are
there in her thought and she has society
in her memories. But while the children
are yet in tender years and in leading
strings, home implies that they are togeth
er in the house, and are not scattered in
foreign and uncongenial abodes. For a
good part of every week-day, for a large
part ot every Sunday, the parents and cnn
dren ought to be in each other's close so
ciety. It is more important for a man of
business to be in his home than to provide
merely for its enlargement The " club "
is no blace for one who has wife and chil
dren : it is an institution for the refuge of
grim and forlorn celibiates, and even for
them it is of doubtful value. Genuine
home-life implies a hearty love for the so
ciety in the house, which will hold this as
close and as long as the children are will
ing to remain. Home is a place for men
as much as for women, for the sons as
much as for the daughters. And no one
has a true home when there is any place
that he loves better to be in than his home.

Arsenic in Wall-Papers.
A correspondent of the British Medi
cal Journal writes .
Hitherto it has been generally suppos
ed that only papers entirely green, and of
a very bright shade of green, were arsen
ical ; but the - feet is, as proved by the
analysis of eminent chemists, that every
paper which contains any green in the
pattern, no matter how little, or of what
shade, as a general rule contains arsenic,
and is, therefore, injurious to health. One
shade of green is no safer than another,
for the very palest greens frequently con
tain large quantities of arsenite of copper,
the brilliant color of which is toned down
to any degree of paleness by the addition
of chalk and sometimes of white lead ; the
result being that pale green papers often
contain just as much arsenic as those of
brighter color. The quantities of arsenic
used in green papers appear almost unli
mited, varying from the fractional part of
a grain up to the frightful amounts of six,
nine, fourteen grains and upwards, to the
square foot I have beside me some pale
green papers, the analysis of which give
those amounts, and the illnesses produced
by those papers proved in some cases all
but fatal. I have also by me a paper with
green leaves on a white ground, contain
ing no less than eight grains to the square
foot which caused most serious illness.
" When the atmosphere of dwellings all
over the kingdom, in town and country, is
thus more or less poisoned with arsenic,
the most volatile and the most subtle of
all poisons, need we be surprixed at the in
creasing prevalence or various forms or
disease t Investigation of this subject is
earnestly called for. I cannot but regard
it as a question of great national import
ance, affecting masses of our population
physically, mentally, and morally, to an
extent little conceived at present There
appears good reason for believing that a
very large amount of sickness and mortal
ity among all classes is attributable to
this cause, and that it may probably ac
count for many of the mysterious diseases
of the present day which so continually
imiuiv oil uieuiu&i sjuii.
Arsenic being exceedhnrlv volatile, its
effects by inhalation, both of gaseous
emanations from the oaDers. and of the
fine impalpable dust thrown off at all tem
peratures, are highly dangerous, produc
ing symptoms both chronic and acute,
wuicu simulate various iorms or disease.
x say nmuuae, Decause l nave seen cases
where the symptoms ot various diseases
were produced by the irritation of the en
tire mucous membrane, and consequently
of the whole system, resulting from the
occupation of rooms with arsenical wall
papers; and on the removal of those papers
the symptoms gradually subsided, thus
proving wai mey were tne result or irri
tation, and not of organic disease. But it
would seem not improbable that prolong
ed exposure to the same nnlsnnnno in.
fluence may in time produce those diseases
wmcn are at Erst only simulated.
u Having witnessed the effects of slow-
uuuxHUUK uy arsenical Tmnprs in mv nwn
lamily and household during a number of
jtoio, uiu uavmg Bunerea severely my
self from the same cause, I speak from
personal experience. During a nprirwl nf
twelve years we were rarely free from ill
ness in some form or other. No fewer
man twelve physicians, several of emi
nence, were consulted in London and
elsewhere. They all agreed as to the
diseased conditions which existed, but
not one succeeded in affording more than
a measure of temporary relief. Children
and adulta of both sexes, including several
servants, and numbering altogether four
teen persons, all suffered. The peculiar
nature and obstinacy of the symtoms were
such that I could not but think sometimes
that some hidden 'cause was at work ;
which analysis of the papers of rooms
occupied during these twelve years has
since proved to be indisputably the case.
The idea that arsenic papers were the
cause of illness was suggested by the
perusal of a little book not long since pub
lished, entitled, 'The Green of the
Period, which givts much valuable in
formation on the subiect and was nut in
to my hands by a physician who was at
tending us. The proof that such was
really the case lies in the fact, that on re
moving all the papers containing green
the symptoms were soon greatly relieved."
Take an old shirt, rip it to pieces and
cut out the new one by it, baste it together
and try it on. Don't laugh at the idea; I
Know it is an old one, for I once heard a
young man say he " did not know there
was any fit to a shirt," but trying it on is
the only way a shirt can be made to fit, un
less you nave a scientific pattern cut by a
practical tailor to eo by.
After you have got it to fit nicely, un
baste it and cut out a pattern, allowing for
the seams and marking all the hems,
gathers, etc., by notches, so it will be just
right to cut your cloth by. So far your
trouble is ended. But few ladies are now
compelled to make bosoms, as they can be
bought for a trifle more than the linen
would cost, and by the way, young wives,
buy cheap bosoms; nice high priced
bosoms will not wear out the shirts, and
two cheap ones that cost about the same
will, and when starched and ironed nicely
a twenty cent bosom looks nearly as well
as one costing fifty cents. I know this by
experience, and I find that two cheap
bosoms last as long as the shirt, while one
nice one is gone, leaving the shirt good.
As a general rule I do not approve of cheap
goods, but this is an exception.
Putting the bosom into the shirt is the
first thing to be done after it is cut Double
the front of the shirt in the middle, also
double the bosom and lay it upon the shirt
exactly square and even all around, then
cut out a piece one inch wider than the
bosom, and half an inch shorter. Unfold
shirt and bosom, commence at the top ot
each side and sew the bosom in place of
the piece yon cut out Then lay a plait at
the bottom and upon each side, both plaits
ofa size and large enough to make the
bosom set smooth; stitch the bottom
across, turn the bosom under and hem it
down, it being half an inch too long, hav
ing been left so for that special purpose,
and saves sewing a tape across as some do.
The object of makiog a plait in tne shirt
at the bottom of the bosom is to make the
front of the shirt narrow. The back yon
will at once see needs to be wider than the
front to give freedom to the arms - and
shoulders ; if both sides are of a width the
bosom will shrug together and set out be
yond the vest in a manner you may have
seen but could not explain.
Line the front of the shirt the whole
length and width from the bosom back to
the arm size. Some only face a narrow
strip just around the arm size, bnt the best
way by far is to line the whole back from
the neck down to the bottom of the arm
size and the front as I before said.
The quickest and easiest way to sew up
seams in shirts and an outer nnuer gar
ments is in this wise : bew np your gar
ment or sleeve upon the right or outside,
trim the seam very small, turn and sew up
again on the wrong side and your seam is
quickly and neatly nmtnea witnoui ieii
in?. which is a branch of sewing most
ladies dislike very much to do. The first
time sewing the seam, the stitches may be
long if the cotton is strong, but the next
titse it must be done tigni and well, ana
you find the seam strong and soft Cor.
The manner of properly selecting and
preparing food, and its judicious variation,
is one that does not receive the attention
that it oueht Professor Blot who is ad
mitted to be authority on this subject
says that "it is by practical experience
that we learn what is proper for us, and
not by chemical analysis." How can it be
otherwise, when the same articles which
are relished and easily digested by some
persons, are distasteful and indigestible in
the case of others? As no satisfactory
reason can be assigned for this, it must be
attributed to the peculiar idiosyncracy of
the individual, and it is only experience
that can teach each one what particular
article of food agrees with him, and what
does not It often happens that a certain
article of food is highly relished and en
joyed, and yet is indigestible by the one
who is thus fond ot it in this case taste
will not do to be relied on, and experience
will have to admonish when inclination
prompts to indulgence.
The great chemish and physiologist, Ma-
gendie, made some interesting experiments
on the effects of certain kinds of food.
He fed geese on gum only, and they died
on the sixteenth day; he fed some on
starch only, and they died on the twenty
fourth day ; he fed others on boiled white
of eggs only, and they died on the forty-
sisin day, ne led outers on tne three sinus
mixed together, and they fattened instead
of dying. Here is a proof of the neces
sity of not only varying but mixing food
as much as possible, in order to supply the
waste and necessities of every part of the
in the nrst instance, gum auorded a
nourishment similar to starch and sugar,
serving to sustain animal heat, but not to
restore the waste of the tissues, on account
of the absence ot nitrogen. In the second
instance, starch served to keep up the ani
mal heat and being more highly organized
than tram, enabled the birds to maintain
existence a few days longer. The want
of nitrogen, however, proved fatal, as in
the case of gum food. Those fed onwhite
of eggs alone had the nitrogen afforded by
tne albumen, but eventually died from
want of a supply of animal heat capable
of being yielded by the starch. Those fed
on the three kinds of food mixed not only
survived, but throve, because all the wants
of the system were supplied.
As before stated, the preparation and
cooking of food should receive its proper
share of attention, if the greatest amount
of benefit is to be derived from its intro
duction in the system. Blot, the professor
of this art, says that green vegetables,
such as cabbage, spinach, eta, should be
put in boiling water, but dry vegetables,
as beans and peas, should be put in cold
water to cook, alter navtng been previously
soaked in lukewarm water. In the cose of
potatoes, the eyes or germs are to be cut
out and the skin rubbed or scraped off,
then steamed or roasted. He thinks that
fish, although only containing twenty per
cent oi nutritious matter, ought to be par
taken of at least twice a week, as it con
tains more phosphorus than any other
food, and serves to supply the waste of
that substance in the system, and particu
larly in the brain. He says that the brain
of an idiot contains about 1 per cent of
phosphoric matter; that of persons of
sound intellect, 2 per cent, while that of
a maniac contains 3Jj per cent If this be
so, it would seem that in a maniac the
brain appropriates an undue proportion of
phosphoric matter trom the rest of the sys
tern, whereby its functions are materially
impaired. Scientific American.

Economy in Selecting Carpets.
In selecting carpets for rooms much
used, it is poor economy to buy cheap
ones. Ingrain carpets, of close texture,
and the three-ply carpets, are best for com
mon use. Brussels carpets do not wear
so long as the three-ply ones, because they
cannot be turned. Wilton carpets wear
badly, and Venetians are good only for
halls and stairs. '
In selecting colors, avoid those in which
there are any black threads ; as they are
always rotten. The most tasteiui carpets
are those which are made of various
shades of the same color, or of all shades
of only two colors; such as brown and
yellow, or blue and buff, or salmon and
green, or of all shades of green, or of
In laying down carpets, it is a bad prac
tice to put straw under them, as this makes
them wear out in spots. Straw matting
laid under carpets makes them last much
longer, as it is smooth and even, and the
dust sifts through it In buying carpets,
always get a few yards oyer, to allow for
waste in matching figures. In cutting car
pets, make them three or four inches
shorter than the room, to allow for stretch
ing. Begin to cut in the middle of a figure,
and it will usually match better,
Many carpets match in two different ways,
and care must be taken to get the right
one. Sew a carpet on the wrong side,
with a double waxed thread, and with the
ball stitch. This is' done by taking a
stitch on the breadth next to you, point
ing the needle toward you ; and then tak
ing a stitch on the other breadth, pointing
the needle from you. Draw the thread
tightly, but not so as to pucker. In fitting
a breadth to the hearth, cut slits in the
right place, and turn the piece under.
Bind the whole of the carpet with carpet
binding, nail with tacks, having bits of
leather under the heads. To stretch the
carpet use a carpet fork, which is a long
stick, ending with notched tin, like saw
teeth. This is put in the edge of the car
pet, and pushed by one person, while the
nail is driven by another.
Straw matting is best for chambers and
summer parlors. The checked, of two
colors, is not so good to weir. The best
is tne cheapest in the end. When washed,
it should be done with salt water, wiping
it dry ; but frequent washing injures it
Bind matting with cotton binding. Sew
breadths together like carpeting. In ioin-
ing the ends of pieces, ravel out a part and
tie the threads together, turning under a
little of each piece, and then, toying the
ends close, nail them down with nails hay

USEFUL AND SUGGESTIVE.
A sew way of hanging oil paintings is
to have large blocks of wood at the back
of the frame to prevent their touching the
wall, so that the air can circulate through
the back and prevent the painting being
injured by dampness or blistered by the

Mirthfl lness. It is a real blessing to
have one in the family who is sensitive to
the ludicrous. There are enough to reflect
the sad side of life, and its irritable side,
and its sober side. We need one or more

below the surface of painful things. A

Hath and Borne.
Why Do Animals Neep Salt? Prof.
James E. Johnson, of Scotland, says that
half the saline matter of the blood (75 per
cent) consists ot common salt, and as this
is partly dissolved every diy through the
skin and kidneys, the necessity of con
tinued supplies of it to the healthy body
is sufficiently obvious. The bile also con
tains soda (one of the ingredients of salt)
as a special and indispensable constituent,
and so do all the cartilages of the body.
Stint the supply of salt, and neither will
the bile be able property to assist diges
tion, nor the cartilages to be built up again
as fast as they naturally waste. It is bet
ter to place salt where stock can have free
access to it than to give it occasionally in
small quantities. They will help them
selves to what they need, if allowed to do
so at pleasure, otherwise when they be
come salt-hungry, they may take more
than is wholesome.
The St Louis Journal of Education
says : " Every teacher should understand
how to plant trees and the art of grafting,
and should be able to teach children these
things. The play grounds of all our
school-houses should be filled with shade
trees, both in the city and country. Every
holiday at school should be celebrated by
the planting of trees. The highways
should be lined with trees, thus planted
by the vouth of the country. Thn rav
ages which the foolish greed of the last
and present generations has made in our
forests could thus, in time be repaired. -A
million hands in this State could be set at
this work. It would become a habit of
family life to commemorate the events of
home, tne birth ot a child, a wedding, or
the anniversary of either, or even a death,

and team, and no expense since. We are
sure that we have obtained twice the
quantity of hay for the past sixteen years,
or in other words eight tons of hay extra
in that time, worth, on an average, $10
per ton SO for $3 worth of work irri
gating. The quality of the grass has also
improved. It is, the larger part, now blue
grass, very thick and tall, from two feet
six inches to three feet above the cutter
bar, which proves this grass the most re
liable for irrigated meadow, as it steadily
and surely runs out all others in our mead
ow ; but on dry soils it is not a success
with me, and we think it a waste of seed
to sow it there."
Webb Seeds. The seeds of cockle.
chess, and other weeds that are mixed
with the screenings from the fanning mill.
should be carefully prevented from getting
mixed with the manure iu the barn-yard.
We once permitted a neighbor to run a
few bags of grain through our fanning
mill, and gave him the run of the bam for
that purpose. When he had finished, and
during our absence, he doubtless with
good intentions scattered the screenings
all over the barn-yard, so that the fowls
might get the waste grain. This was
probably intended as a sort of recompense
for the use of the mill. Alas ! we never
regretted more than on this occasion the
doing of a favor that resulted badly for
ourselves. Our manure pile was thorough
ly seeded with cockle and chess, and prob
ably ten years of labor will be inflicted on
us before those seeds can be eradicated
from the field on which the manure was
spread. We mention this circumstance as
a warning to others, and also as a forcible
reminder to all that weed seed should be
consumed with fire aud utterly destroyed.
Don't feed them to poultry they won't
eat cockle ; and the seeds seem to last for
ever; by hook or by crook they will get
into the fields somehow. Put them in the
stove and you will have seen the last of
them. Hearth and Home.
Grooming and Feeding Driving Horses.
In regard to the clothing of horses.
there is much diversity of opinion. It is,
however, absolutely necessary to cover
warmly and protect from the cold such
horses as are driven so rapidly as to cause
profuse perspiration. Horses of slow work
and coarse blood are generally furnished
with a very thick, warm coat of hair, and
readily become accustomed to endure the
cold without a blanket A horse, how
ever, looks much better and requires less
food when blanketed, and considering the
variableness and severity of our climate,
the use of some artificial covering is, on
the whole, to be recommended.
Whenever a horse is cleaned, a careful
groom will inspect his feet to see that his
shoes are tight that there are no project
ing clinches to wound his fetlocks, and
that there be nothing wedged into the foot
between the heels of the shoe, or between
the shoe and the frog, which would-do in
jury to the sole of the foot He will also
with his pick (which is simply a short
piece of iron, with a thin, pointed hook
upon one end) thoroughly clean out the
gravel and dirt lodged between the shoe
and the sole, and examine the sides and
cleft of the frog to be sure it is all right
The feet of well-bred horses, kept con
stantly in the stable, would become un
naturally dry, hard and contracted, unless
some means were taken to moisten and
soften them. The best method of doing
this is to fasten into the foot by strips of
thin hoop-iron, pieces of thick felt cut to
fit the inside of the shoe, and cover the
entire sole. These pieces of felt (or they
may be made of several thicknesses of
woollen cloth) are wet and laid into the
foot and the strips of iron pressed in be
tween the shoe and the ftlt Sometimes
the feet are " stopped " or filled with oil
cake meU, or with cow-dung, or with
clay, but the same result is more con
veniently attained by the first method. In
dry, hot Heather, fast-working horses un
less they have flat feet and weak soles
should hate the feet stuffed every night
It is thoight by many to bean excellent
plan to aply occasionally to all parts of
the feet of horses an ointment consisting
of the eqml parts of tar, lard, and bees
wax, and it is probable that the hoof thus
protected cries less rapidly and is rendered
Finally, the good groom will see to it
that his horse is so fed and exercised as to
be in the best possible condition for his
work. Nether horses nor men can be
preserved fa perfect health without sun
shine, fresl air and exercise, and many
fine animas are ruined by irregular work
upon highlr stimulating food. Whenever
a horse is lot employed in his usual daily
task, he should be exercised at a slow pace
by his groan, or at least be allowed to run
for an hou or two in a clean, roomy yard.
By standixg day after day in his stable the
horse accumulates fat, his blood becomes
heated and impure, and his tendons and
muscles soft and unfit for violent exertion.
At the sane time he becomes restive for
want of eiercise, and with his belly full of
food is liatle to injure himself whenever
he ii takei out even though he have a
driver sufficiently careful to restrain him,
which is not often the case.
In this country it is customary to feed
horses three times during the day, and in
most cases it is better to give a feed of
grain or roots at noon than to omit it
The stomach of the horse is small, and in
a natural sute he eats the greater part of
the time, laving down but seldom except a
few hours &t night, and requiring but lit
tle sleep. In domestication, however, he
receives more concentrated food, and re
quires less time for eating; and he exer
cises mora and consequently demands
more repose. Horses which perform ir
regular, light work, like those employed
by physicians, may be kept in excellent
condition if properly fed morning and
evening ; but those which engage in con
stant seveie labor for several hourj after
the food hat passed from the stomach, are
very apt to at too greedily when fed, and
to have attacks of colic and other disor
ders of the digestive system.
The amount and kind of food given to a
horse should correspond somewhat to the
work requind of him, and yet he must eat
though he do nothing. Coarse, hardy
horses may live, and work after a sort,
upon hay and grass, but high-bred animals
will scarcely subsist upon such bulky in
nutritious food, and of course should never
be expected to do any thing more. It is
now generally conceded that valuable
horses ought to receive some grain or roots
every day, wiether at work or not as it is
well known that it requires careful train
ing for several months, to restore a horse
which has been running in pasture for
some weeks, t : -condition. Still it must be
remembered that a horse can no more be
kept in perfect trim for the fastest work
all the time, than a bow can always be
bent without losing its elasticity. The
importance of occasional relaxation from
hard labor for both man and horse is too
often overlooked or postponed, until dis
ease renders it indispensable. With a
proper regard to variety in food and to
the real health and ability of the animal,
now frequently neglected, so long as the
daily work isdone,the horse would not
only look and feel much better, but would
last much longer in complete soundness
than he now does.
Sudden changes from green food to dry,
or the contrary, must be made with great
caution, and there is more need of men
tioning it in this country, because fortu
nately the almost universal English habit
of giving physic to horses once, twice, or
three times, when such changes are made,
is nearly unknown here. In most cases
simple loosening of the bowels by means
of bran mashes and changing the food
gradually, will be sufficient to prevent in
jury to the horse, provided he bo exercised
prudently after Iking some time at grass.
The rapid drvine up of his fluids by the
use of bard food, the heating of his legs
aud feet in the stable, and the relaxed con
dition fo his joints and muscles, all render
him very liable to inflammations and
strains at the time.
The preparation of fast trotters or road
sters for matches, or for rapid driving,
consists in removing superfluous fat which
obstructs the action of the lungs and heart
and inert ases the weight ; and in harden
ing the muscles and tendons. The princi
pal means to be relied on, are physic,
sweating, exercise, rubbing and hard food
of the best quality. President W. 8.
(JiarKt Keport on Morse.
There is a mode of packing eggs by
which they may be saleiy earned any dis
tance, and over rough roads, without dam
age. And there is another mode by which
half of them may be very easily broken.
The secret lies in solid packing, with an
elastic material between the layers. We
have watched many barrels of eggs opened
without a single broken one in them ; and
many badly packed, which we would not
have handled had they been given to ns for
nothing. The proPer mode of packing,
either in barrels, boxes, or baskets, is io
place first a layer of long hay or straw
three inches thick in the bottom. On this
scatter an inch in depth of cut hay or
straw, or chaff or oats, or whatever pack
ing is used ,- then place the eggs on their
sides, not touching each other, and wnen
the layer is complete, spread over them
and between them the cut stuff -or chaff
two inches deep. Press this down gently
with a piece of board, and put another
layer of eggs, taking care that they do not
toucn each otner, oi tne sides ot tne Dar
rel or box ; again fill up the layer of pack
ing, and press down as before. When the
barrel is fall, place a layer of long hay or
straw on the top in such quantity tnai me
lid must be pressed down with considera
ble force to go into its place, i ne eggs
will then be solidly packed and will not
become loose, and will stand considerable
jarring without damage ; but if they were
loosely packed, each little jar would cause
them to strike against eacn otner, inereDy
breaking the shells. Hearth and Home.
How to Plant a Maple Grove.
The sugar maple is easily raised from
its seed, which ripens in October. The
seed is sometimes planted immediately in
beds of finely pulverized earth and cover
ed three-quarters of an inch deep, when it
will sprout early the following spring; but
with a warm, moist fall it is apt to grow
before frost and thus be destroyed by the
winter; and perhaps it is better to gather
the seed when ripe, mix with dry sand,
place in a cool cellar, and sow cariy me
following sorir e. The seedlings at one
year old should be transplanted into the
nursery rows, two feet apart, and the plants
eight inches in the row. In two years
they will be from four to six feet high, and
are then ready to transplant into the
forest rows. But many thousands of
young plants may be found on the out
skirts of maple woods, where cattle do not
browse them. Those are better for being
transplanted into the nursery rows and
grown for two years before planting in
The sced3 are sometimes planted direct
ly were intended to grow in the forest
rows ; but this is not a good way, as it in
volves much more labor fo keep them
clean and the growth will be slower.
The land to be planted should be put un
der good cultivation and worked in some
hoed crop, for a few years after transplant
ing the maples. When the young trees
get a good start, seed down with orchard
grass, which will grow in shade, or can be
cut and fed green or cured for hay. It
may be pastured when the trees are too
large to be injured by cattle. The crops
will pay for all cultivation and expense of
trees for the first five years.
Now wnen ready to set the young trees
in the forest rows, draw straight shallow
furrows, north and south, twenty feet
apart, and set twelve feet apart in the fur
row, and you will have 183 trees to the
acre. Allowing for some loses, you may
have 2,000 trees on twelve acres. These
trees, with proper attention, will be twelve
inches in diameter twenty years from set
ting ; after which you may make one
p3und of sugar per year from a tree for
the next tenyears. Estimating sugar, on
an average, to be fifteen cents per pound,
and we have f 300 per year; but aeduct-
ing f 100 for labor, leaves $300 per year, I
or l a,uuu ior ten years, mis will pay all
arrears of interest up to this time ; and
henceforth thi twelve acres of maple
grove will pay the interest on $ 300 per
acre, with a constantly increasing value of
timber. Cor Jiural JVei Yorker.
