Tlie ui pretentious cottage of our illus
tration, n reprint from American Garden,
is a pleasing and somewhat unusual
style of building;, but tlie observant
reader v.ill notice that tlie home like

it nre tin- result of the planter's efforts,
racher t inn those of the architect and

conceits that often uiar dwellings of this
order, and render them unpleasant for
human 1 abitations.
A HAPPY CSE OF VINES.
The balcony is broad and comfortable,
high enough aUve the ground to catch
the light breezes on a sultry summer
evpning, and the air of the whole house
is one of common fteiisc and comfort, but
th nrtjs ic grace and sense of pleasure
comes fivjin the natural festoons of wood

from tlit pillars and eaves of the porch
and climb the corner of the house. The

For a delicate form of cabbage Brus
sels spro its are to lie commended. These
require a rich soil. The plants ought to
receive he same treatment as do cab
bages, but the sprouts last all summer,
and sho ild therefore be placed where
they can have the whole ground for the
season. The plants grow with a large,
loose, cabbage like top and a tall stalk
below, over which little cabbage like
heads form, which can lie gathered all
summer anil until the hard frosts of the
north may destroy them. At the south
they endure the winter.
Most eple win) consider cabbage an
essential y coarse food are unacquainted
with the tSavoy class. Even the Savoys
which have len crossed and increased
in size ind coarseness, like the Drum
head Savoy, are still far superior to the
ordinary flat Dutch and Drumheads. And
now we have a variety known as the
Netted Savoy, whiclrvoml.ines fair size
with the highest quality.
A SncscHtlnii for Sli--p Shearine Time.
Many "armers at sheep shearing time
roll up I he fleeces so carelessly and hide
in them so much filth that it is not strange
they receive low prices for the clip.
Another thing, all burrs ought to be
clipped out of the fleece. The Wool
Grower, calling attention to this subject,
If sheep are ranged in a section where
burrs gri iw, of course their fleeces will
be moreorless infested with the nuisance,
and the wool will net the owner three
cents a found and upwards less, depend
ing upon the amount of burrs and the
price of wool, than if free from the de
fect; for if a buyer can find a few burrs
in a ptac of, w - I
iilat me bellies and flanks of all fleeces
of that clip are loaded with buns, and
he makes his offer in accordance with
When shearing is progressing, the men
who are tying up the fleeces can pats
their hands over each fleece as it lies
upon the wood table, and in a few mo
ments c;in clip off the burrs with a pair
of sheart.. If they are unable to keep up
with the shearers and do that, we think
it would pay the owner of the wool to
put an xtra hand or two at the work,
and let them pass tho fleeces along to
the men who tie, as fast as the burrs are
clipped. We hope some of our friends
rho are so unfortunate as to have burry
wool will try our plan, and see if they
cannot Bive money by tho operation.

Hear what he says:
I have been a practical druggist in
Tyler for a number of years, and in that
time bare had occasion to examine, try,
and notice the effect of nearly all the
highly recommended preparations or pat
ent medicines on the market, and as I
have suffered nntold misery myself, the
past number of years, from a severe form
of inflammatory rheumatism, and could
find nothing to cure or relieve me, I had
almost drawn a conclusion that all pat
ent medicines were more or less frauds
wntil about one year ago, I was in
duced by a friend now living in Tyler, to
try a preparation known as 3 B. or Bo
tanic Blood Balm, and after a long per
suasion on his part, I finally made up
my mind to make one more effort to rid
myself of the terrible affliction; and it
now affords me the greatest pleasure of
my life to state to the citizens of Smith
county that I am entirely cured, with no
traces of the disease left, and all effected
by the magic healing properties of B. B.
B., which I consider the grandest, purest
and most powerful blood remedy known
to man. I have been subject to ins
flammatory attacks since ten years of
age, and up to the present time have had
four. The last spell came on me in
November, 1885, over a year
ago, at which time I was
confined to my bed for eight weeks, pass
Ing the nights in misery, with no sleep
except when produced by narcotics and
various opiates. The week previous to
using B. B. B. up to that time I had onlv
eaten six meids, and could scarlely sit up
wiinout support; but after using three
bottles 1 was able to relish mv meals and
to walk up town, and after six bottles
had been used, thank heaven, I was en
tirely cured, and not the slightest pain
felt since that time. When I returned to
business in February, my weight was 145
pounds, but gradually increased until my
regular weight was again attained, 210
pounds. The noticeable fact in what I
have so cheerfully stated is, that this un
paralleled and remarkable discovery, B
B. B. , cured me in midwinter, at the
very time my sufferings and misery were
the greatest. I take it on myself as a
practical druggist to heartily, cheerfully,
as well as conscientiously, recommend
this glorious blood remedy to all sufferers
of rheumatism or blood troubles, and not
only myself, hut the firm ot MrKsy &
Adams, who handle it, will cheerfully in
dorse its superior merits.
