roTATos FOR PLANTING.---'ew ope
rations on the farm receive so little at
tention as the selection and keeping of
potatoes for planting, yet the success of
the crop depends very inuch on the con.
ditlon of the potatoes planted. ' How
often we' hedr fa rmer8 complain that
their potatoes do not come up well or
that they fail to make a vigotous growth
usually attributing it to the state of the
weather. when in many cases the trou
ble is with the potatoes planted. In so
leoting and keeping potatoes one impor
tant fact is usually entirely overlooked,
which is, that the potato is not the seed
therefore is more liable to be injured by
keeping. Most of seeds are covered
with a hard substance which protects
them from the light and the sudden
changes of temperature, if kept in a dry
place; but the potato being simply a
tuber has no such protection, therefore
is very sensitive to light and variations
of temperature, even though kept in a
(try place. In fact, a potato is similar
to the root of a tree when severed from
the tree,which we are socareful to keep
in a dark, cool place if we wish to keep
it in a healthy condition and grow weil
when set in the ground. - The potato
may endure more than the root of a tree
without completely losing its vitality,
but it suffers in the same way and, if
not entirely killed, is injured in some
degree by being kept where it is too
hot, too cold or too dry. If it is kept
too hot it sprouts badly, and thus loses
its vitality, never again producing such
vigorous stalks as come from the first
sprouts. It kept where it is so cold as
to chill it, it is worse than keeping it
where it is too warm, as it does not take
much of a chill to prevent it from grow
ing at all. 'TIe farmer in selecting po
tatoes for planting should ever keep in
mind that he is dealing with tubdrs,and
ot with seed, therefore size and form
is of so important as health. When he
selk to scions he cares more to have
goo( uds and a healthy shoot thiant he
does or the particular form; and in
keepl g his scions he uses groat care to
keep em where it is cool, and neither
too w nor too dry. The same priuci
ple w 'cl holds good in the scion applies
to ti potato, especially that which ap'
plies > the streugh of the buds and the
healt of the shoot or the tuber. As
the >tato when planted is simply the
renu al of the old life, it carries with it
ma y of the diseases which it may have
gi tiered up, while a seed only carries
with it the constitutional weakness of
the parent,. Thus the importance of se
lecting potatoes as free as possible from
disease and of keeping them where they
will lose none of their vitality,
HONEY VINEoAR.-It would seem that
in this preparation extremes meot.How
over, oil good authority it is stated that
good vinegar has boon made from honey
or honey cappings, and it is uifter this
method: "Put the cappiga intoa dip
per and let thorn remain about twenty
four hourr+; then place them in as much
water as will sweeten the mixture a lit
I le sweeter than new cider. The cup
pings are left in water an hour or two
then put" in a itrainer to drip for about
twelve hours. Savo the drips and put
v into the first mixture, This sweetened
water soonl begins to "nork," and the
scum should be removed as oiten as it
rises. T1his fermei.tationi continues n
til it reaches tihe vinegar p)oint. One
year is required to make good vinegar.
It would not be profitable to use good
honey for this p)urp.ose,b3ut there is mere
or less waste which cani be advantage

cleaned geese, rub them well with salt I
and with a little saltpeter, place in a
jar or other vessel, with a weight upon t
them. Let them remain thus for ten
days, after which put them in smoke
for two weeks. To utilize the remain- t
der of the goose after cutting out the t
breast for smoking, it is prepared as
follows: Out up the flesh into suitable
pieces, then take of vinegar and water
of equal quantities, enough to cover
the meat, add a handful of small onions
and salt, pepper, cloves, etc.; boil to
gether until the meat is done. This, if 1V
put in a cool place, will keep well, and
make an excellent dish when warmed
up or eaten cold.
* How TO USE KERosENR.-Where ker
osene is used these precautions are in- '
dispensable: Use lamps with chimneys
- the taller the better, Always keep a
supply on hand in case of breakage. Y
Fill and clean the lamps in the morn- v
ing. Keep the body of the lamp near
ly full of candle-wick. Trim- off all the d
charred portions of the wick. On - re
tiring set the lamp where there is a Si
draft, out of the room, and turn down n
the wick until the charred part. which h
is slightly enlarged, fills the tube, and c1
so prevents evaporation. Avoid always, b
if possible, carrying lamps from one
portion of the house to another while
lighted. "So may your days be long
in the land,"
STUFFED UABBAGE.--Take a large
cabbage and cut out the heart; fill the
space with a stuffing made of cooked
turkey, chicken or any meat except
mutton or lamb; chop very fine and
highly season: mix with one mashed
potato, and the yolk of one egg and two
spoonfuls of the gravy stock, roll in
balls, and roll the balls in flour; stuff
the cabbage and place the loose leaves r(
which you have removed over the hole a'
at top and bottom with them, and tie
the cabbage firmly together and boil in d
a covered kettle for two hours. The a
water should be salted. It makes a
very delicious dish, and is useful in us
ing up small pieces of cold meat, d
FnuiT EATiNG. -When fruit does harm k
it is because it is eaten at improper lc
times, in improper quantities, or before
it is ripened and not fit for human stom
achs. A distinguished physician has t
said that it his patients would make a I
practice of eating a couple of good oran- F
ges before breakfast, from February to 1
June, his practice would be gone. The 3
principal evil is that we do not eat C
enough of fruit; that we injure its finer I
qualities with sugar; that we drown r
them in cream. We need the medical "1

system, and their cooling corrective t
