'1'Tu: 'olsoNIN oF WIEEs AND IN
sEors.-Uardening is such an innocent
occupation, so promotive of gentle
thoughts and ways ats to make the idea
of using poison even to destroy vermin,
produce a shudder of reluctance, at
first thought of it. But the survival of
the strongest and the fittest is the old
est earthly law. The most ancient
marine fossils-the old Silurian fishes
disentonbed by Hugh Miller from de
posits of incalculable antiquity-show
that even before there was dry land or
bird or beast, the stronger fishes were
ialified and purposelyfitted, privateer
like, to prey upon their swarming in
feriors. "Self'-nreservation is the first
law of Nature. ' This adage may have
a selfish sound, and is no doubt perver
ted in application for selfish ends, but
it justifies our modern methods of quick
extermination to the enemies of the
crops which the earth gives us only at
the cost of resolute and persevering
struggle, and skill. I 'have just been
giving rose bushes a second and currants
a third syringitig with a dilute infusion
of hellebore, using a brass syringe with
the rose which gives the linest spray.
It is quick sure death to the voracious
larvic, and it leaves the foliage clean,
whole, bright, and competent to bring
the blossoms and tie fruit to full per
fection. It senms eecctive too, against
the white leaf-hoppers that infest
Roses and lrape-vines, and suck the
juices from their leaves. With a good
bWass syringe-an invaluable house
aind gardun insatrumont-it is easy to
keep follage whole and bright. Such
materials as mix itimately (as Paris
green, or sutlphiur, or soot, or kerosene,
with water) are easily churned and
foamed into at thorougli temporary aai
mixture, and then most easily sent in
to every crevice aiti corner iii which
insect or mildew can lodge, with at
force, specet, and directness, too, that
nothing else equ.ils, Carbolic acid is
now recomnended for paved yards, etc.,
where we once st.rewed salt, to be ani
noyed with its deliquescence long alter
wards; and where we fotund it look
still worse to have a poor woman or
boy all tay spuddin g the grass bit by
bit fromi the chinks with an old knife.
In contrast to such methods, the appli
cation of a spray of very dilute c.rbol
ic acid, during Snisuhine, is a very brief
and easy job, and is satid to be entirely
ellective. For strong single weeds in
lawns, a drop or two of strong acid is
spurted froml a Ilittle oil can upon the
crown of the plant, which may be

tie are nearly as large as Shorthorus
or 1)urhams, but do not mature so ear
ly, nor fatten so kindly, and are not
so line inl their pohnis. They generally
give quite large nesses of1 milk of m od
crate quality, especially good, like the
Ayrshiire, for making cheese. The
Shorthorns originally were as great
milkers as the .iloistelns, and there are
manny fanilies of tient still kept up,
both in England and America, as large
milkers. There are repeated iustances
of their giying thirt,y to forty quarts of
good milk per day, in full t.w'. I once
possessed one that gave ani average of
ti irty-th ree quarts per day for sometime
after calving. The London and other
larger dairies in Enigland, having tried
a variety of milkiug breeds, have set
tied on the shorthorn ats the best; and
in addition to their excelling all others
for milk, when dried ofi', they fatten

Vulcanized Caoutchouc.--M. Bouchut
has recently Introduced to notice of the
members of the Academie des Sciences
a cuirasse of vulcanized caoutchouc,
which he has used with success for the
treatment of cancerous and other tu
mors of the breast. In this country
there has been much division of opinion
upon the utility of pressure in the treat
ment of cancer, some %urgeons regard
ing it as hurtful, or but rarely useful,
others attributing to it great retarda
tion of the rapidity of the growth of the
tumor or even cure. 'T he surgeons of
Mlddlesex.lospital studied It systomat
ically some years ago, and gave an uinl
favorable report. The theory of the
plan is certainly good; a neodlasia, like
a healthy tissue, Is dependent upon its
blood supply for vitality and growth,
and complete anaemia causes the death
of a tumor, as it does of a patch of brain
substance. It will be remembered that
Mr. Ilaward lastycar reli ;ed at the Clii
teal Society a case in poin t. iIe liga
tured the left lingual artery for a re
current epithelloma of the tongue ; the
tumor sloughed away, aid a fortnight
before the patient's death from blood
poisoning the tongue was qultie healed.
In just the same way lschilaia wil iml
pair the vitality and so lesson the growl h
of a tumor. '1'he difliculty is rather in
the practical application of the theory.
The knowledge that we now possess of
the mode of growth of cancers gives its
at least one important lndication. It
we have to deal with neoplasia that
grows at the periphery by gradual in
filtration of the surrounding tissues, it
is plain that, for pressure to be useful,
it muist be applied around the tumor
rather than over It. where by compress
lug and obstructing the ctpillarieu, it
wotuld cause overfullness of those it. t he
circuinference. It is the periphery of
a cancer that is Its active part, and we
must, therefore, produce ischneauia
around and not in the tuinor. In the
application of the treatment this must
l obttited by the careful adjustment
of clastic pads or cotton wool, anti
as the whole success of the plaln
depecds upon the skill with which this
is tione, too iuch attention cannot be
given t.o it. We cannot regard pressure
as a stlhstitute for removal of a cancer;
but in the freqtent cases where this is
Iimpractlcable it tppears to be the
best substiltite at present open to the
Surgeon. I. 1o3uchut's cuira.-se would
scent to be an itprovelment upon ,te
spring pads and other appliances ini use
in this country.
M. licin, i Freici mnitth, halts invented
a iight hun1111p which answers the putr
pos; of a clock. 'T'lhe ihour is indictted
by the extent of combustion of the oil.
Fron the oil reservoir rise two vertical
glass tubes; one contails oil and iS
graduated for the hours, the other con
tains the wick saturated with oil and
giving the light. The construction is
suich that one hour is required to cot
sulme the quittity of oil between two
grauaitt,ionls of the first-metntioned tube.
A reflector placed under the liue at
the side throws i tlmnious beat icross
the graduttel tube, The chief use of
the lamp will be to enable early risers,
night workers and others to turn over
without rising and read what time it is.
Nevertheless, any economical old gen
tleman cni 1 set one of the lamps in the
parlor Jist before going t i bed, and by
it young Romeo will be constantly re
minded that it's time to qnIt burnig
the old man's gas for that night.

A Jovful Announcement
to suffering munons is the glad tidings that at
last a oertain cure for piles has been discov
ered. 600 000 persons who- have used Dr.
Bilsboo's Anakesis, pronounce it infallible.
Doctors of all medical schools proscribe it in
practice ; ompirios and nostrum venders ooun
torfeit and imitate it, and all, without excep
tion, admit that it is entitled to the name of
"Medical Miracle." Nothing in medicine is
more simple. rational, prompt and certain. It
is not an accidental blunder of inexporlonce,
but the scientific solution of a most diflicult
problem, by an accomplished physician of 40
years' practice and study. Anakosis is a
happy combination of a soothing poultice,
supporting instrument and curative medicine.
It alleviates at once the most excruciating
pain; it holds up the raw. sensitive tumors,
and by firm, continued pressure and medica
tion applied to the swollen veins is able to
cure the most inveterate cases of blind or
bleeding piles. The inventor of "Anakesis"
may well be regarded as a public benefactor,
and sufferers from this terrible disoase.will
thank us for calling attention to a discovery
so worthy. It Is not loss singular that in the
circular concerning Anakosis, full directions
are given for rnavETiNo iiLEs, a fact never
before observed in any medicino the propri
etors wished to sell. "Anakesis" is sold by
druggists everywhere. Sent free on receipt
of price, $1.00 per box; samples gratis by 1'.

How the Tyrelese Love.
There is a pretty Alpine hut inhabited in
the summer by the subject of his affec
tions. The solitary life is one that could
only be made endurable by habit, iron
nerves and absolute indifference to danger.
The girl lives alone among her cattle. She
seldom sees a single soul, except her fellow
servant who brings her the fortnightly sup
plies, or some surly keeper who is sure to
suspect her of being in league with his
enemies, the poachers. " She has to tackle
the vicious bull single-handed; she has to
tame the cow-no longer the docile creature
that would conic when she called her name
since her calf had been taken away from
her." She has to protect herself and her
frail habitation and her charges against
sniow stornis, thunder storms, hurricanes
and swollen torrents. One can fancy how
she looks forward to a pleasant visit of any
kind, above all the visit of a lover. Yet it
is significant of Tyrolese self-restraint un
der any circumstances that the pair to all
appearance are absolutely undenonstrative,
unless for what may be read in their eyes.
She does not even offer her admirer her
hand, nor does lie seem to expect it. Yet
should there be rival suitors, and if the
young woman is a flirt, it will be seen that
his feelings are the fiercer for being sup
pressed, and affairs are unlikely to be set
tled without bloodshed. The very indoor
amusements of the Tyrolese are rough and
even savage, though they seldom bear
malice for anything that may happen.
A writer and traveler tells of a friendly
struggle in an inn parlor, where a couple of
companions at a drinking bout interlocked
the middle fingers of their hands, resting
the elbows on the table, and struggled to
drag each other over. A muscle gave way
under the strain and one of them was ho:e
lessly maimed for life ; yet, when'the first
sharp burst of pain was deadened and his
finger was dressed, the sufferer gave his
hand to the winner, and they ended the
evening amicably as they had begun it. So
at the rifle matches, they show the same
inflexible firmness of nerve and body. We
took a friend to one of them who was in
clined to depreciate these performancee.
The cynically disposed spectator changed
his opinion altogether when he saw the
marksmen at work. Ile remarked after
ward, that "had he not seen it with his
own eyes lie would never have believed
that human muscles and nerves could rem
main so rigid and apparently motionless,"
and the shcoting is more admirable that the
weapons are clumsy and antiqluated. The
usual range is one hundred and fifty yards,
and lhe has counted five consecutive shots
in which "five marksmen, taken at hap
hazard, firing one after another, hit each a
mark the size of a sixpence." Such feats
are the more astonishing if we consider
that the marksman has no rest either for
his body or the unwieldy rifle.

The secretary of the Ohio State Ilorti
eu ltu ral Society recommend coverIng
the clusters of grapes to protect them
from rot and Insets. "CoverIng the
fruit by slipping a paper bag over each
cluster after the berries are formed and
letting it remnain till rIpe Is found a vom
plete protectioni from rot and also from
insects and birds. T1hie baga are those
in common use by grocers, the size six

1,000. They are fastened aroundl the
stemn of the clusters wvith two pins, of
course allowing space for the fruit ao

saves freom live thousand to seven thou
