another thing whlih works very well.
It is this: I ant boss, and they know it;

But, if'we happen to diller, I show thein

Professor Elkman, who bas long been
engaged in the study of the phyalcal
condition of be sea on the coast of Soan
dinavia, has published in a paper read
before the Royal Boelety of Solence of
Upsula his views on' time causes of
ocean currents, which merit tihe more
attention as tihe coast of Swedon affords
iumerous opportunities for the exam
in tton of currents produced in very
dif'erent ways. If we take a general
view of the etreits produced upon the
ocean by tihe different forces which or
iginally set its waters in motion, we
find, singularly enough, that each of
these forces produces both of the kinds
Qfstreatn- viz., a surfaco streamn caused
by a limtited, and a deep stream by an
unlimited, disturbance of the equillb
rium. IeIat produces a surface action
by wariminmg the water, and a deep
stream by evaporating it. Cold can
i/rodtce an undercurrent by tihe con
traction, aml still more by tihe concen
triation of tihe water, but It thon leaves
at time surface a tendency to disturbance
of equilibrium, which shows itself in
tie form of a surface stream ol time
ielting of' ice. Rainfall causes a deep
strean as its Imnediato cons(quence,
and a surface current of lighter water
is a secondary effect. Winds occasion
directly surfaco currents, and deep
streams by changing the level. Rivers,
and similar constant outpourings of
lighter water, give immediate rise only
to surface stremats. but produce tinder
currents by mechanlical reneotLol ;
streams of timls kind often accompany
even the above mentioned. Time spe
cille gravity of tie water plays ini all
these cases a very varied part, but al
ways one which is 1i some respect or
other importamit. It usually determines
the level of tihe water strata, but not

'ON TiN CARE OF INFANTs.-ll liurs
ing, over-feeding does aore harm than
aylitliIng else; nurse an infant a month
or two old every two or three hours.
Nurse an-itfant of six months over live
times in twenty-four hours, and no
more. It an iinfait is thirsty give it
pure water; or barley water; no sugar.
If the Infant must be fed, boil a tea
spoouful of powdered barley (ground
in a coffee griider) and a gill of water,
with a little salt, for lifteen minutes,
strail them), mix it with half as much
boiled milk, add a lump of white sugar,
size of a walmut, and give it lukewarm
from a nursing bottle; keep bottle and
miouthpiece .1i a bowl of water when
not in use, to which a little soda may
be added. For infants live or six
months old, give half barley-water and
half-boiled milk, with salt and a lump
of sugar. For older infants give more
milk than barley-water. Eor infants
very costive givl oatmeal Instead of
barley. Cook and strain as before.
When1 the breast milk Is only half
enough, ebange oil between breast
milk and this prepared. food. In hot
weather, if blue litmus paper, applied
to tihe food, turns red, the food is too
acid, and you must make a fresh mss,
or add a snall pinch of baking soda.
Ilfants of six months may have beef
ten and beef soup once a day, by itself
or mixed with other food; an when
ten or twelve months old a crust of'
bread and a piece of rare beef to suck.
No child mier two years ought to eat
it your table. Give no candles-in
fact, niothimg that is not contained in
tiese rules, without a doctor's orders.
Slimmer cotpiflaints conic from over
feeding amid hot and foul air. Kee)
Iloors and windows open. Wash your
children well with cold water twice a
lay, and ofttener In the hot season.
Never neglect looseness of time bowels
in an iifait; consult the faimily or dis
pIenisary physiciani at once, and lie will
give you rules about what It should
take and how it should be iursed.

-A iloon to Humanity
is anything that will esse pain, and a publie
benefactor one who is able to relieve human
ailments. Tire most liainful of all bodily ills
is surely piles, and such has been the absurd,
empirioal, barbarous treatment of this terrible
disease for 8000 years that scientific men began
to despair, and a distinguished modern surgeon
his, pronounced it the "opprobzium of the
profession." Afflicted millions tortured with
pain and deceived by the false pretensions of
ple noetrums, cried out In the language of the
Bible: "Who is this that darkenethocoansel by
words without knowledge; oanst thou draw out
a Leviathan with a book?" Dr. Bilsbee is a
benefactor and Anakesis, the great infallible
pile remedy, the most beneficent discovery of
the age; a simple, safe, prompt and permanent
euro for this terrible, psinfuT and heretofore
almost incurable 4isease. Half a million suf
ferers pronounce it 'infallible; none use it
without benefit, and doctors of al1 medical
schools now presof'ibe it, It is thedicer

ii1Nrs ox -rHEi CAIl OF lloiss.-A
horse should have a stable entirely
above ground, well lighted and well
ventjlated. It Is next in importance
that he be fed at certain regular hours;
also that lie be not fed too much at once,
as he should clean out the manger every
time, especially if not used, and be
ready to grab at the next mess; it will
do no harm if the bunk lsenpty two or
hree hours. Horses fed .in this way
will really eat more and do better than
if the manger Is constantly cranned
with that which has been mussed over;
besides, the 'Iorse is not kept stuifed all
the time and lils wind 1s better. Again,
It makes'a great (ililerence what a horse
Is fed. Hay and oats alone will soon
ruin some horses, and hay should not
be fed steadily to any horse. A safe
system of feeding in winter is as fol
lows: hay in the morning, an good
bright cornstalks twice a (lay, with a
few ears of corn morning and night if
not working, otherwise, corn three
times a day, the cornstalks being just
loosening enough to counteract tihe ef
fects of the hay and keep the animal
healthy. Oat straw may be used in
place of the cornstalks, or together;
and then oats may be fed in place of
corn. If a horse is not being used
he should not stand in the stable two
days in succession, but on mild days.
should be let out in the yard for exer
else a few hours, or be hitched up and
driven. When the horse comes to be
worked in the spring, the feed should
be changed entirely ; but in changing
feed always do It gradually, and no
harm will ensue. Whlen working, the
feedt should consist of cut hay, wetted
and mixed with meal made of corn and
oats in equal parts ground together;
and It is astoniehing how little feed of
this kind will keel) a horse good at hard
labor, it gaunts him, as lie should be;
he Is not stuired with hay, his wind, or
breathing power, is better, and lie does
not seek to drink so much water. As
to watering, I have said nothing, as the
rules for that are so simple and so gen
erally understood that any man who
will founder a horse ought to be fined
and imprisoned for cruelty to animals.
In regard to the rearing and raising of
horses, I will say but little, being not
an expert, though I -imust have some
useful knowledge, and will simply add :
[n the nmanagdmnent of a horse bring in
to play all your skill and ingenuity,
taking advantage of your knowledge
of the nature and disposition of the par
ticular one with which you are dealing,
which knowledge you will obtain by
observation and thus avoid tihe necess
ity of ruling by brute force.
IfrALTI HINTS FOR i'Altm-ImS.--Di:n
ger comes from sudden straiiiinag of
one muscle or set of muscles, so as to
injure their tissue and cause lameness.
Few escape this. Thei add to these
the injury fron overwork. Overwork
is simply working after the strength
h1a< beenl reducled s. low that it is pain
'ul or wearying to move. It is work
ing after the nourishment in tihe blood
has been mostly used up. It is like
keeping the mill going when the steam
is low. or when the water in the dam
is nearly out. In such eases not only
the muscles suffer, but all the organs
of the body. Overwork at last, no mat
ter what kind it is, produces baikrupt
cy of the body, which is worse thani
any kind of bankruptcy, bad as they
all are. In the care of the tauscles
avold colds and rheumatism. They
make people still' and linae. They take
away tihe natural elasticity whlie gives
so munch pleasure, amu substitute a
wvornout, tired, exhausted feeling
whlich~ borders on pain, and is often
more difficult to bear. How very care
fuli time owner of a iliac horse is that it
shall not take cold, lie knows if it
does it will founder, and after- this it
will never be a goodi stopper. Our
whole countrny is full of iou ndered
men and women, who are still', lame
rheumatic, 01ld in feeling, inehastie.
Most of them might have preservedl
their elasticity to ok(1 age if they hiad
takeni proper care of themselves. As a
rule farmers do not bathe as miuchm as
they shouild. TVhe (daily bath is to them
quite as important as to any class. it
requires but a few mnohents to take it,
and when followed by friction, it forti
fles the skins against colds.
SrnOrUTINo PO-TrroS. -- Sprouting
thme white potato wIll advance the crop
two wveeks. .lhey should be cut so
that about two eyes are allowed to each
p~iece, and these should be planted in
hot beds with very thin covering of
soil; or it is' better to plant in boxes
or set these -in a hot-bed ; so that after
they are properly sprouted they can be
at once carrIed to ths~ place of plantin g.
If the nights should be aniyway's coldi,
protect with a thin covering of straw
when the plants make their appearance
above groundi~. Some personis, who
want a large quantity sprouted, cut the
p~otatoes as desired, andl spreadl them on
boards, boxes or crates in a dark place,
and when sprouted, say fronau an inch
to an inch and a half, expose them to
the light, moistening two or three
tImes a week with tepid water. They
should be planted out so that there is
niot more than two inches of soii over
the top) of the sprout.
