The famine prevalent in Ireland Is
largely owing now, as in the past, to
the failure of the potato crop, on which
that unhappy land had so uniformly
depended for food. It is singular that
our common potato should be called
Irish, because the bulk of the lower
order of the Irish are accustomed at
home to use It as the chief at tiele of
diet. While It Is hard to deelde where
it has spread since Its cultivation by
man, it is a native of mountainous dis
trictis 0t tropical and subtropleaf
America, probably from Clilll to lex
leo, It has been asserted that the frst
vegetable of the kind known to clvifl
atton was discovered in Patagonia;
but the assertion has never been cor
roborated. Humboldt doubted If it lad
ever been found truly wild; but later
travelers of high scientille reputation
are satisfied on this point. The wild
plant, except that the tubers are small
or, differs very little from the cultivated
plant. The potato has been raised on
this continent, and it tubers eaten from
times long preceding the discovery oi
the western world. It seems to have
been firit taken to Europe in the be.
gin-ing of the sixteenth century, by
tI 'nilards, from the vicinity of
4xtended from Spain to the
Nr k ds, France and Italy, but
only uo a curiosity, being conflued to
afew gardens. It long bore the same
name as the batata, or sweet potato,
which is the tuber meant by most Old
World writers down to the middle of
the seventeenth century. It appears to
have been carried to Ireland from Vir
ginia (1550) by Ilawkins, a slave-tra
der, and to England 20 years later by
Sir Franiels Drake, without attract,ing
much attention, untill it was a third
time exported from this country by the
expedition sent out by Sir Walter RMa
leigh. SLID, a long time passed before
the potato began to be widely ctltiva
ted. It mighit be used to advanitage, It
was thought, for feeding cattle and
swine and very poor people, and was
inally raised with a view to prevent
famines, especially in Irelam, where It
was cultivated more extensively thaii
in any other part. of Europe. Not, be
fore the end of the eiglhtenth cent.ury
was it generally introduced into France
and Gernimay. Diarwhi noted the po.

Chillian Mountalus, where the rain does
not fall sometimes for six consecutive
months. It Is closely related to the

from its stems aid leaves a potent ijar

potatoes was for a while forbinden in

RESUSCITA'ING C1IILLED LAMBS.
The season of easily lainbs is at hand,
and it is a season of the year when they
are liable, in some instances, to be
obliled. When lambs are clill'ed It is
difileult to revive them, even by gentle
rubbing, warming by the stove, wrap
plig in old flannel, and other old-time
methods. We have been for somo time
thinking over the natter, and now sug
gest another plan of treatment. The
old flannel and bushel basket, or sub
stitute, will still be required after the
lamb is taken out of the bath. When
the lamb is chilled, prepare a pall two
thirds full of warm water, say 90 dog.
F., or as warm ai tile foot (not the
hand) will comfortably bear. Put tie
Iamb into this bath, all except its head,
for Ilve to ten minutes, according to the
eilect it has on him, if lie revives in
live or six minutes, take him out; if he
revives slowly, keep him in about ten
minutes. lie Will show any revival by
kicking and struggling. O course the
liead must be held by some one while
Lie reet of the body in under water in
lo pall. When the lamb is taken out,
lole It up gently, in a warm place, by
,he fore legs and head, allowing the
water to drain off; titen wipe over
gently to dry ; wrap in old flannel or
ther woolen, and put in tile basket, in
,% warm plpAce. We think this plan of re
Suscitatiig chilled lambS will work
pretty weli (best in the hands of thu
arier's wife), because the warm water
will quickly and equally warm every
part of tie skin, thus equalizing the
,jrculation in all parts quickly and of
Iectually. The iatnb should not be ex
osed to cool or cold air till thoroughly
try. If the lamb is able to suck, the

On land plowed last fall, or in corn
stalks; we would advise sowing, as soon
as the land is - in order In spring, a
bushel of oats per aere, with a peok of
timothy, ten pounds of red clover, two
of white, and a few pounds of blue
grass. Keep off the cattle till the oats
have covered the ground; then, if you
do not stock too heavily, you will have
pasture continuously. Seeding down
on spring plowing Is uncertain, if the
seson is dry. The increased interest
in cattle-grow lug will demand a largely
increased acreage in grass, and many
farmers, we find, are. needing pastur
age the coming summer who have
iade no move so far toward it. We
have tried the above plan and-succeed

Electricty Versus Gas.-Five pounds
of gas coal will yield 25 cubic feet of
gas, which, if burned in five gas bur
ners of the best construction, will give
from 20 to 22 candles each, or 100 can
dies to 110 candles In the aggregate.
Twelve Edison lamps produce 120 can
dles and the five gas burners produce
100 to 110 candles, with an equivalent
exspenditure of fuel. If each apparatus
and system could be worked with
equal facility and economy, this would
or course show something in fav.or of
the electric light; but when in fact
everything in this regard is against the
electric light, which demands vastly
more machinery, and that of a more
delicate kind, requires more skilful
management, shows miore liability to
disarrangenientand waste, and presents
an utter lacK of the sturage capacity
which secures iuch a vast efficlency,
convenience and economy In gas, then
this relatively trifling economy disap

Herr Charles Spangenber(ler has paten

pulverized iron anid linseed varnish.
it is intended for painting damp cel
lars, kettles, outer walls, or any place

tIrst coat should be thin; the next
thicker, and the last in a rather Jluid
state. It is not necessary to free iron
froin rust, grease, etc., by means of
acid before applying thIs paint, as a
superficial cleaning is suffilent.
A Recent course of experiments made
to determine the heating power of gas
shows that one cubic foot of ordinary
sixteen-candle coal gas will develop
318 heat units, while water gas will
give only about 137 heat units per cu
