Tb principal thins n curing hams is to gel them
just salt enongb to keep, and not so wit a to in
jure the flavor or cause them to lwoine JiarJ.
My plan of curing is as follows ; When the ham
are trimmed, rub each one with tolerable fine salt,
mod pack in tightca-ks holdins about 150 gallon.
Make awect pickle by using one and R llf gal
lons ofXew Orleans molasses or its equivalent in
sugar, and six ounces of powdered saltpetre to
forty gallons water.with salt enough to make the
pickle float a potato when it is nude. Let it
tand until the senm rises and it bkiinmed ofl.
Have the hams in the cask weighted down s-o they
will not rise when covered with the pickle. They
should remain in the pickle from five to six week-.

Shut Your Mouth."
Catlin tanght the world the importance
of (hutting the mouth and breathing
thro ugh, the none. It wonld seem that ids
little book entitled "Shut Your Mouth" i
bearing fruit in Germany, where new
thoughts receive more attention from phys
icians than anywhere in the worlp. ltcspi
ration by the mouth is easier than by tin
nose, but is not so safe. The nose to a cer
tain extent fits !he air for entering the
lungs. The sense of nmell warns us against
breathing an air loaded with poisonous va
pors. The moisture of the nasal cavities
to some extent saturates the air, and make
it lees irritating to the throat and larynx.
The mucus of the nasal passage and the
hairs catch the dust before it goes far
enough to harm. On tlie other hand,
breathing through the mouth dries the
throat, and in children may cause false
croup, catarrh, and it may so effect the
Eustachian tube as to cause injury to the
ear and deafness.
In the care of fever and ague this remedy
displays extraordinary powers. Properly
used, no case can resist it, and other diseases
of an intermitteat character, including that
most distressing disease, periodical neu
ralgia, have been found to yield, with
equal certainty, to its influence. It eradi
cates all malaria from the system, gives
toae and vigor to the whole body, and pre
veata disease from becoming seated. Try

speedy in ita action. - You will never re

years. I'hilip llcrtsbach, engineer in the
factory, has not been seen r-iucc the explo
sion. His wife says that her hubaiid, on
his return from work Monday night, told
her that one of the tubes of the boiler or
some pipe connection w th it, he was not
sure which, had bursted. That he had
pnken to Greenfield, paying the break was
dangerous, and might cause an explosion if
it were not repaired, and' that Greenfield
told him they must
TRY TO C.ET ALONG
with it as it vis until Sunday, owing to the
pressure of business. Mrs. Ileitzoach said
her husband was greatly disturbed in mind
on account of this, often referring to it dur
ing the week.and saying he was afraid every
morning to go to his work. Yesterday
morning, when he left home, he told her he
never expected to see her again. Hcrtzbach
was 35 years old, and lived on t32nd street.
Two men who rescued two girls say they
had been told by workmen in the starch
room, on the second floor, that the fire was
caused by the upsetting of a kerosene lamp
in the room. They asserted that the finely
powdered starch used in the manufacture of
gitm unors WAS EXl'LCSlVi:,
and that the explosion was caused in thi
way. They did not believe the boiler ex
ploded, asserting it would have blown up
the sidewalk beneath which it was situated.
A man named Slein says he went down to
the boiler room only about five mintrcs be
foit the fire occurred to obtain a can of wa
fer. Hcrtzbach, the engineer, was then at
liis pot and raking out fire. The total Ins

CHRISTMAS IS COMING.
A Few Hints to Aaaiat in Preparing
Faintlv in the dim distance sounds
the chiming of Christinas lel!s.
PieTcing winds whistle around the
corners, and howl down the chimney's
throat, but safely housed, the echoes
bring to us only the joyful storv.
Christmas is coming ; and the biting
blast blows cold, searching here,
and praying there, until in the house
of poverty it revels in wild rejoicing
On its wings are carried no "tidings ot
great joy, but pinching cold, and
bitter want and helplessness ami head
ache. Ciod pity and send succor to
the poor and the unfortunate; the
widows and fatherlesss who, with sad
eves and Iteavv hearts, look forward
with dread aud despair, to a winter of
uttering aud privation; to whose dull
ears will souml no glad enrols, to
whom will come no "Merry Christ
inas." CHRISTMAS PRESENT?.
As the winds blow, and the blasts
howl, wc remember that if Christmas
is really coming, it is high time wc
hould liestir ourselves, and hasten to
tlie partial relief of those who are in
itiandarv, and plaintively query what
thev can make for Christmas.
A IIEALTIFL'L CEOS.
One would never imagine that so
artistic and curious a thing could be
made from that very uninteresting
article an ox horn. Find one as
white as possible and boil it for six
hours, or until quite soft. Make a
cross of strijw of wood. The upright
piece should be nine inches m height,
urn the cross piece six inches. .Mor
tice the latter in the mid lie to the
upright, at one-third the distance from
the ton. and glue it tirnilv; then
secure the kise to a thin block of
wtiod about three inches square.
Fasten this to another block a little
larger, and finally add a thin! block
still larger; the three blocks will
represent the steps to the cross, and
the exact proportion should lie accu
rately oliserved. Cover all the wood
wit" ilouhje white wax such as comes
for making wax flowers.
Put on a mir of gloves, and with
a piece of glass, scrape oil all the

A PICTURE FltAME.
Cut a frame of white holly wood
and sand paper it smooth. Cut the
centre out according to the size of the
picture it is to enclose. Kub lioth the
utside and inside edges with hue sain
paper, until tney are smootn am
slightly rounded, then trace a vine on
the white 'surface. A sprav of ivv
leaves or a pretty embroidery pattern,
or design for wood carving, cm be
made to fit the frame and transferred
to it by means of tracing pajcr.
Paint all the frame carefully witl
black paint, leaving the leaves, ami
the outside cud inside edges, a pure
white ; let all the outlines be clcarlv
defined, aud the paint laid on vcrv
smoothly. Then, with a camels hair
brush and India ink, trace the vcin-
ings of the leaves and shade the edges
very delicately -just the faintest tinge.
When finished, the frame, if carefully
done, will look like inlaid ivory. A
photograph of statuary would be a
pretty picture for this frame. Put
the picture in water, until it will float
from the card, then dry it carcfullv
and cut the figure out ; paste it with a
few drops of very thick gum-arabic
on a square of black velvet which has
been fastened smoothly on a piece of
pasteboard just large enough to fit the
frame, which should have some narrow
strips of wood clued on the back in
order to hold the glass, and keep the
wood from warping. A beautiful
picture for a large sized frame would
be a cross with a wreath of flowers
twining about it, and springing from
the base ; ihe whole to be pricked in
the same manner as the lamp shade
described above, then cut out and fast
ened on black velvet.
Cat an oval piece of pasteboard and
cover it smoothly on the bottom with I

About midnight last night, jtist
when the pelting rain was pouring
down in torrents, a westward bound
freight train on the Missouri Pacific
road came booming along the levee.
Just as the train had turned the curve
west of the Gillis House, the engineer

that his foot seemed to he caught : Iietween drinks, they'd swell around
nnd was holding him fast.
It was just where the Narrow Gauge
md the Missouri Pacific tracks crossed
each othor at the foot of Broadway.
It was too late to stop the train, and
the engineer could only whistle "down

heavily loaded cars go grinding and
crushing the life out of the unfortu -

The train was stopped and the mutila -
ted man dragged out of 'the rami and
water. He was vet ahVe, and his only
words were, "Oh God !" His left arm
was cut off near the shoulder. Both
legs were crushed ofl and his head
was torn and mutilated in a
most shocking manner. His face was
one mass 01 mood, mud and
beard, and as he was taken up from
the track and laid in a carriage, he
presented one of the most shocking
sights conceivable he was all in
pieces and remnants. Dr. Morris, the

Mi:. Chahlmax This is an occasion

pleasant reminiscences concerning

lightly into history myself. Standing
here on the shore of the Atlantic and

A Robol Silver Quarter.
We learned last night that a coin is
in existence as the confederate quar
ter of a dollar. On one side it is
"stamped with the head of President
Davis," and was coined in 1SG2. A
J gentleman of undoubted veracity says
that he saw this piece of money on
the Alabama river, and as high as
was bid for the same by the captain of
the steamer, others being mnde from
85 upward, and higher prices would
have been offered, but the owner of
the "quarter" said he would not give it
for the steamer and its contents. This,
of course, stopped the bidding, more
especially after the gentlemen said
that the memento could not be pur
chased at any price. His object is to
sell it for an immense amount, by
some means unknown to anyone.
That the confederacy ever coined
money is something new to us, ns the
government never had a mint. How
this above mentioned came into exist
ence is a mystery, but we do not
doubt the same, as a truthful gentle
man said that be saw it and offered
