EFFoT OF HEAT ON BOGS -Hogs gener
- ally gain very little auring the summer on
account o' the neglect on the part of their
pwners to provide for their comforf. In
some cases their skin cracks- open by the
influence of the direct rays of the sun, and
sores are formed which are infe-ted by
insects. The large amount of tat contained
in the body of the hog renders it impatient
of heat, rud means should be provided for
renderinrg the animal as cool as possible.
Us! pastures in which hogs are kept should
be well supplied with water, not only for
drinking but for cooling purposes. if
there are no, natural streams or ponds,
there should be poole made in which they
can wallow when they desire. They should
have plenty of grass and other green food,
as weil as sour mnilk and slope. Corn and
other beating articles of food should be fed
sparingly. Cooling shade Is essential to
the comfort and well being of hogs during
the hot days of summner. Farmers who
have the advantage of groves and forests
located on the banks of streams and rivers,
or on *he shores of lakies, generally have
little trouble with hogs during the summer.
The ground protected by the trees and
bushes remains cool and moist even when
that exposed to the rays of the sun Is
parched and hot. The streanis and ponds
allord water for drinking and bathing.
The hog is a cleanly aninal when it is
allowt d a fair chance. If a hog pasturo
contains no natural shade and water, they
should be provided. Water can be con
ducted thiough pipes from springs and
wells at a small expente, and inade to
supply poels and watering troughs. shade
can be affurded by planting trees or erect.

very clean, dry, wide-necked bottles with
gooseberries picked the same day, in dry
weather, and just before they have attain-'
ed their full size. Wrap a little hay round
each bottle, and set them up to their necks
In a boiler of cold water, which should be
brought very gradually to a boil; a little
hay must be put in the bottom of the boil
er, and the bottles flxeul firmly. Let the
fruit simmer gently until it appears
shrunken and perfectly scalded, then take
out the bottles. and 1ill up as many as you
can quite full with some of the cooked
gooseberries-it is generally necessary to
sacriflee one of the bottles in doing this,
taking c,.re not to break the fruit. Direct
ly the bottles are full of gooseb'rries, pour
boiling water Into the bottles up to the
brims, else they will inildew. . Tie bladder
over the tops immediately, and keep the
bottles in a d':y, cool place. When
the gooseberr:es are used, pour off the
greater part of the water, and add the
same sugar as for fresh truit, of which
thr y ought to have the same flavor and ap

berries are perfectly wholesome, and will
keep until the fruit comes In again.

Then use a chain stitch to draw'these rows

The Use* of Mica.-.The mica chiefly
met with in commerce Is of that variety
which Is proof against acidet and Intense
heat. Its toughness, elasticity, and close
approach to traneparency naturally ltd, at
first, to its use for windows, and especially
to its employment in lanterns. It is found
In large quantities iu bNorth Carolina, where
there are unmistakable evidences that some
of the beds were worked a great many
years ago- The finer sheets of mica are
now used for such purposes as the dials of
compasses, the letterine of fancy signs,
covering photographs, constructing lamp
shades, reflectors, etc. Of late mica has
been used in the soles of boots and shoes,
as a protector against dampness. The in.
vention consists of a sheet of mica embed
ded in thin coatings of cement and placed
in the boot and shoe between the outer and
inner sole, the upper leather lopping over
its edges, and covering the upper space
from the toe to the instep. There are many
other uses to which mica is put, and it Is be.
coming more and in ore valuable as the arts
and trades progress.
Mr. Orlando Weatherbee, says an ex.
change of ours, proprietor "The tpencer
Pharmacy," Spencer, Mass., reports : My
customers speak very highly of the Grest
German Remedy, St. Jacob's Oil, it having
always given excellent satisfaction. One
of them, Mr. Henry Belcher, has been
greatly benefited by its use in a case of
severe rheumatism, and he refers to it In
terms of highest praise.
Nearly all marbles are made at Ober
stien, Germany. There are large agate
quarries and mills in that neighborhood,
and the refuse is turned .to good account in
providing the small stone balls for experts
to "knuckle" with. The stone is broken
into small cubes by blows of a light hani
mer. Then small blocks of stone are
thrown by the shovelful into the hopper of
a small mill, I ormed of a bedastone, having
its surface grooved with concentrate fur
rws ; above this is the "runner," which is
of sone hard wood having a level face on
its lower surface. The upper bleck is made
to revolve rapidly, water being delivered
upon the grooves of the bedstone where the
marbles are being rounded. It takes about
lifteen minutes to finish half a bushel of
good marbles, ready for the boys' knuckles.
One mill will turn out 160,000 marbles per

According to M. Bogdait, who took
part in the Russian Noith sea expedition
last summer, the present system of pursuing
whales with steamers and bullets has so
groat ly increased the number killed annu
ally as to have a marked effect upon the
fisheries on the Normanic co.ist. Vormer
ly the whales drove immense shoals of fish
to tue coasta in the spring; now the num
ber of small fishes coming to the ccast has
much dimin.shed. The use of gun powder
on whales has removed much of the dan
ger of whale fishing hereto ore experienced.
