SWow ]aiR Restorer.
It WSA one of the by-laws of Heart
ache's Heavenly Hair Baiser that it be
hied liberally before retiring, rubbing
it well into the scalp. Just before he
went to bed that night the man bolted
the back door, put the cat in the wood
shed, came in whistling the "Fatin
itza" waltz, danced up to the clock
shelf, and pouring out what he sup
posed to be his hair fertilizer he mop
ped it all over his scalp and stirred it
well in around the roots of the little
hedge of hair at the back of his neck.
The glue bottle, by an unearthly coln
cldgnce, was nearly the same shape
and size as the hair sap bottle.. He went
to bed. "George,!' said his wifeturn

You wouldn't expect that a man can
put stuff on his head that will make his
hair grow and have it smell like essence
of wintergreen, would you?" They
went to sleep mad as Turks. This par

great white chignon. At first he did
not realize his condition; ho thought
it must have caught on a pin or shirt
button. It looked ridiculous, and he
would throw it baci on the bud before
his wife saw it, so he caught itquickly
by one end and'yanked.' Oh I oh I Dar
nation to fIlhhooks, what has been go
ing on here? Thunder and lightning 1"
and he began to claw at his scalp like
a lunatic. His wife .sprang up from
her couch andt began to sob Jhistorical
ly. "Oh, don't, George. What is it?
What's the matter ?" Qeorge was danc
ing about the room, the pillow now
dangling by a few hairs, his scalp
covered with something that looked
like sheet copper, while the air was
redolent of warlike expletives, as If a
dictionary had exploded. With a wo
sman's instinct the poor wife took in the
ituation at a glance, and exclaimed:
"It is the glue I" The baldheaded man
sat down in a chair and looked at her
a moment in contemptuous silence,
and tnen uttered the one expressive
word, "Glue I" Now began a series of
processes and experiments unheard o
in the annals of chemistry, "Jane,
you must soak It off with warm water.
I've got togo to Utica to-day." "I
can't, George," she replied,in a guilty
tone, "It's waterproof." "Yes, J might
have known it, and it's fireproof, I sup
pose, too, ain't it?" He scratched over
the smooth plating with his finger
nails. "It's hard as iron." he said.
"Yes-he said it was good glue," re
peated she, innocently. Can't you
skin it off with your razor, George ?'.

Buoys, for use in Winter.
Iron buoys--both cans and nuns, the
conical, the former a truncated cone,
almost a cylinder-are incapable of re
sisting the pressure of floes or ice, to
which they are repeatedly subjected.
They are torn from their moorings and
carried off or under, generally never
to be heard from again. This has
caused a heavy drain on the funds of
the Lighthouse Board, so heavy indeed
that a few years ago it felt compelled
to take them all up in winter and re
place with spar (wooden) buoys. The
latter, shaped like a yessel's yards,
are much cheaper, and when pressed
by the floating ice they easily go under
and come up again after it has passed.
They cannot, however, owing to their
small diameter, be seen in murky
weather until close at hand. For this
reason the Lighthouse Board was be
sieged with petitions from the shipping
interest to keep the iron buoys in place.
The request was granted,but the Board
it-is understood, has been trying ever
since to make both ends meet by seek
ing the invention of iron buoys which
can hold their own against running
ice. The spar buoy furnished a clew,
and now the so-called ice buoy is the
result of many experIments. It is a
compromise between the spar and the
run buoy. It is about forty-five feet
long, is made of boiler iron in lamin..
ated sections, and is shaped like a cigar
torpedo. Near the center is a large
bulb or protuberance, with a diameter
of three and a half feet. Th'iis enlarged
section tapers at its ends, which is de
signed to insure its ducking when hard
pushed by the ice, and its increased
diameter is ex pectedto give is the no ces
Sary prominence, it is constructed
with four water-tight compartments,
so that should any of them be cut
through and filled thme others will keep
-it afloat. One of the buoys has been
placed on Craven's Shoal, another at
Southmwest Ledge. What the result
will be is yet to be determined, but, in
conversation with the master of thme
buoy tender (Captain Summers), lhe
expresse(d his doubts that it will prove
better than the spar buoy.
In hardening and temp~ering a cold
chisel should be taken to have a grad
ual shading of temper. If there is a
distinct boundary line of temper color
between the hard cutting edge and
softer shank portion, mt will be very
apt to break at or near that line. Thek
cutting edge portion of the ebisei
should be supported by a backing of
s'esl gradually <(iminishing in hard
ness; and so with all metal cutting
bools that are subjected to heavy strain.
Not every workman becomes uniform
ly successfi in this direction, for, in
addition to dexterity, it requiresa nice
perception of dlegree of heat and of
9olor in order to obtain the best result.
BUTrnR,-In Swed6n the dairy inalds
are sent to college and educated in
dairy management for six months, at
the . end of which time they recoive
certificates and are considered compe
tent to work in large dairies. Their
instructions are very definite as to
every feature of the operation of butter
making, includin. the quality of the
salt and the coloring matter, and the
food Of the cattle; the quality of the
butter Is consequently uniform. A
part of a lot of Cork butter may sonie
times be sent back by the wholesale
dealer because it Is not equal to the
rest, but this Is said neVer to have hap
penedwith Danish butter. The selection
of the cows and the feeding of them are
the first important 'point In the busi
ness. The Danish dairyme'n keep their
cows tethered during the summer in
"splendid clover and rye grass," and
feed them in winter exclusively with
clover hay, linseed cake, and rape cake.
The milk is set in such a way that the
cream shall be got off while it is still
perfectly sweet, for they will not churn
it if it is in any other condition. The
proper temperature for churning,
which is from 57 to 60 degrees, is es
sential, and the churning should not
be continued too long. The best but
ter makers stop churning at the very
moment the butter appears in the form
of grains like shot. They pass off the
buttermilk through a strainer, then
put the butter back with water. give it
a few more turns in the churn, strain
again, and repeat the operation till the
w% ater runs off as clear and bright as
when it was put in. Salt is added by
weight, at the rate of six pounds of
salt to a hundred-weight of butter, by
being sprinkled over the butter after
It has been spread out in layers; a few

BUILDINGS MADE OF GONcRETE.
Few farmers know how to build a con
crete wall, yet it is very simple job,
and in many cases would prove an ex
cellent wall for buildings and cellars.
To build such a wall you need to set
3x4 joist at the corners, then at inter
vals of about eight feet along the out
side of the wall, placing the joists op
posite and about eighteen inches apart.
On the inside of the joist set up plank
about a foot wide. There will be fifteen
Inches between these planks, which
will be the thickness of the wall. For
a large building, which would have
heavy floor timbers, the wall might be
two feet thick; for a piggery or other
small buildings it need not beso thick.
Have a cement made by mixing three
barrels of line plastering sand and four
barrels clean gravel. Wet this when
mixed so it will be thick enough to
pour, and fill between the planks, about
three inches deep, then in that pack
small stones as closely as possible-the
more closely the stones pack the less
cemeat it will take. Then pour on
more cement and put in more stones
until your space Is full. The work
must be so planned as to use your ce
ment and get the stones in it before it
has time to harden. For a heavy wall
planks may be raised in twenty-four
hours after the space is filled. Raise
them about ten Izh% amil go on w be

costs about the same as timber wall

Bors IN Hosis.--This trouble is
due to the maggots or grubs of a fly
which fasten themselves upon the lin
ing of the stomach and sometimes that
of the intestines of the horse. The fe
male .fly deposits her eggs simply upon
the hair of the lower jaw, neck and
forward logs of the horse. They hatch
in a short time, and the tickling sensa
tion prodluced by the young grub caus
es the horse to lick the place, and thus
the grub passes into the horse's mouth
and from thence into the stomach,
where they soon fasten themselves by
numerous minute hooks in rows upon
their white wrinkled bodies. After
about two months the bets pass from
the horse and bury themselves in the
dung and remain in the dormant pupa
state until the next season, when the
fly begins the round of trouble again.
Th'ie maggots irritate the coat of the
stomach and cause the formation of
puss upon which they feed. A dose of
physic may help to dislodge them, or
hasten the time of their removal from
SHEEP are peculiarly sensitive to good
treatment. A good shepherd is always
gentle among his sheep, Ewes which
are to lamb early ought to be by them
selves and have better care as their

turnips and give them a little more
liberal sprinkling of corn meal and
bran, or oil cake.
SwEET cream is usually churned at
a lithle higher temperature than sour
cream, and the same rule holds good
for churning whole milk. Sweet
whole milk churns best at a little
above 60 dog.

An Old1 Church.
isle of Wight county,'Va., has the
honor of having within its limits the
oldest church in the United States. It
is St. Luke's Church, and stands not
very far from the main road from
Smithfield, about twenty miles from
Norfolk. it was erected in 1032, of
bricks imported from England ,In 1762
it received its dlenominational name.
The Rev. Mr. Faulkner was one of its
first pastors, and there are re jords to
show that lie was engaged as late as
10441. All of the material of the church
was Imported, even to the lime and
woodwork. Tihe timber is of English
oak, and was framed previous to ship
mont. Where it has not been exposed
too much to the elements it is still per
fectly soumnd, while thme mortar is so
hard that steel brought in sudden con
tact with it produces sparks. On the
eastern side there is a window twenty
feet high, of stained-glass representing
Scriptural subjects. The pillers
which strenghten the walls, are wide
at the base,and taper towards the eaves
-have somewhat moldered, and varn
onis shrubs and vines, and even small
trees, have rooted themselves therein.
In 1727, or one hundred and five years
after it was built, it was given a new
roof of shinigles, and in 1827 it received
Its third covering. An effort is now
being made to raise means to repair
the old church,. and it is to be hoped
that the laudaible enterprise will meat

tested the makio properties of borax
have been losing a great help and com.
(orb. 'If onob used you will never be
without a bottle on vour toilet table.
It removes stains and dirb from the
hands'better than soap,, and at the
same time sottens and smooths the
skin. It is splendid for washing the
hair, and will, without injury, cleanse
brushes and combs in a few moments.
For washing purposes it saves both
soap and labor. It will extract the
diet from'articles of delicate texture
without rub bing, it being only neoces
sary to put the articles to soak with a
solution of borax over night,, and need
only to be rinsed'in the morning. Two
tablespoon fuls of pulverized borax
dissolved In a quart of water, to which
water enough is added to cover a pair
of blankets, will cleanse them beauti
fully. It also saves great labor in
washing paint. It is said to drive
away ants and roaches if sprinkled on
the shelves of safes and pantries.
BEEF TEA WITHOUT MEAT.-Take
one-third of a pound of fresh beef,
mutton, poultry, or game,minced very
fine; place it in fourteen ounces of soft
cold water, to which has been added a
pinch or about eighteen grains, of table
salt, and three or four drops of muria
tie acid; stir all with a wooden spoon,
and set it aside for one hou', stirring
it occasionally; then strain it through
a gauze or sieve by means of five ad
ditional ounces of cold soft water,
pressing it, so that all the soluble mat
ter willbe removed from the residue;
mix the two strainings, and the ex
tract is ready for use. It should be
drunk freely every two or three hours.
MAIDs OF HONOR.-Take one cup of
sour milk, one cup of sweet milk, a
tablespoonful of melted butter, the
yolk of four eggs, juice and rind of
one lemon, one small cup of white
pounded sugar candy. Put both kinds
of the milk together In a vessel which
Is set In another and let it --be
come suficiently heated to set the curd;
then strain off the milk, rub the curd
through a strainer, add butter to the
curd, the sugar candy, wel beaten eggs
and lemon. Line the little pans with
the richest of paste and fill vith the
mixture; bake until firm in the cen
tre-from ten to fifteen minutes.
PUMPKIN PIE.-Stew the pumkin
very dry, indeed; take a pint of rich
cream, or if this is not obtainable, half
a pint of warm milk with one quarter
of pound of butter stirred well into it;
beat eight eggs very light, and stir
them into the other ingredients, to
gether with sugar enough to make it
sweet; add to this a grated nutmeg, a
large teaspoonful of powdered mace
and cinnamon mixed, a wine glass of
rosewater, and a glass of wine mixed
together, and a tiny pinch of salt; beat
all together, and bake in a rich paste.
BLACKING STOVEs.-The line polish
given stoves by those skilled in the
art is produced as follows: Have a
thin mixture of black varnish and tur
pentine; apply this with a paint or
varnish brush to a portion of the stove,
then with a cloth dust this over with
pulverized black lustre or stove
polish, then rub with dry brush. The
stove Yrust be perfectly cold. The
stove dealeys buy the pulverized stovo
polish, which is carbureA OC 1-ron, in
twenty-five pound packages. The
process conducted in this manner is
quite brief, bus gives beautiful results.
HOT SLAW.-Cut the cabbage fine
and ini long ploos, but do0 not ehop it
-use a thin, sharp knife. ll for
thirty minutes in enough water to
cover it, then dIrain It off, season with
one teaspoon of flour stirred in one tea
cup of strong vinegar; beat one egg
and put in one large teaspoon of sour
cream, with pepper andl salt. Tihis is
for two quarts of raw, cut cabbage.
To CLAAsE GrM&s Oions.-If the
globes on a gas fixture are much stain
ed on the outside by smoke, soak them
In tolerably hot water in which a little
washing soda has boen dissolved. Then
put a teaspoonful-of powdered ammonia
in a pan of luke warm water and with
a hand brush scrub the globes until
the smoke stains disappear . Rinse in
clean cold water. They wIll be as
white as if new.

general of the Oeological Survey of the

the recurrence of the various pheno
mena in geological time. His Anal
conclusions as to the origin and age of
mountain.ranges were thus summed
up: "If the nebular hypothesis of
astronomers be true (and k know of no
reason why it should be doubted), the
earth was one time in a purely gaseous
state, and afterward In a fAld condi

and by consolidation, due to partial
cooling, took place on the surface, and
as the radiation of heat went on, the
the outer shell thickened. Radiation
still going on, the interior fluid matter
deoreased in bulk, and by force of
gravitation the outer shell, being
drawn toward the interior, gave way,
and in parts, got crinkled up, and this,
according to cosmogonists, was the
origin of the earliest mountain chains.

is accounted for by supposing it to
have been occasioned by the rapidI and
great radiation of heat which took
pliace on a'perfectly clear night. An
mntense degree of cold had been neces..
sary to cause the lakes to freeze during
the cloudy weather of the previous cold
spell, and the freezing was then very
irre'gular and unequal.
It has become so common to write

terms as possible, to induce people to
give themi one trial, as no one who
knowvs their value will ever use any
thing else.-Provdencc Advertiser.

rily fatah,may be administered without
causing immediate death.'' He adds
that in such a ease the physiological
effects of poison differ greatly from
those produced by an ordinary dose.

THE GREAT REPUTATION
Which Vegetine has attained in all parts of the
country as a
GREAT AND GOOD MEDIOINE,
and the large number of testimonials whtio are
constantly being received from persons who
have been cured Dy its use, are conclusivo proof
of its great value. It is recommended by phy
siolans and apothecaries. As a Blood-Purifer
and Health-ltestorer It has no equal.

ing ditilerent physicians, many remedies suffer
ing for years, is it not conclusive proof, if you
are a sufferer, you can be cured ? Why is this
medicine performing such great cures T it
works in the blood. 'n the circulating fluid. it
can be truly called the Great Blood Purifier.
The great, source of disease originates in the
blood; and no medicine that does not act dI
rectly upan it, to purify and renovate, has any
tus claim upon pubdc attention. When the
blood becomes lifeless and stagnant. either
from change of weather or climate, want of ex
ercise, Irregular diet, or from any other cau e,
the Vegetlne will renew the blood, carry off the
putrid humors, cleanse the stomach. regulatc
the bowels, and impart a tone of vtor to the
whole body. The conviction is, in the public
as well as in the medical profession, that the
remedies supplied by the Vegetable Kingdom
aro more safe, more successlul in the cure of
disease, than mineral tpedicines. Vegettne is
composed of ruots, barks and herbs. It Is
pleasant to thke and is perfectly safe to give an
infant. D i you ,xeed it? Do not hesitato to
try it. You will nu.er. regret It.
