A Method or Reducing Bonea.
?, Mr.; Porter Warren, qf New Hamp

formula for reducing bones :
If thp farmer will set aside a oask, in
sonie convenient place, for the reooption
of bones, and throw all that are fonnd
on the farm into it, he will be likely to

twenty-four hours all the bones, with
the exception, perhaps, of tho hard
shih-'bbnes, will become eo much soft

They will not bo iri particles of bone,

The Beat Hogs rar (lie South.
i We hove recently received letters
f.om many valued friends inquiring
??Hrhst is the best hog-for-the - south
One of the good effeots of having
raised an abundant crop of corn is the
generally diffused'desire to raise our
own meat, und as that good work must
now bo commenced from the foundation,
' the inquiry as to the best and most pro
fitable breed is natural.
We unhesitatingly answer that the
Berkshire, or a oross of the Berkshire
nud Essex, is incomparably the best hog
f>r our country and climate. We are
intimately acquainted with persons in
Tennessee, and other stated, who have
'r ? ?raiBe'd the Borkshires for several years,
and have brought them to a perfection <
Buch as we have never seen attained by
any other breed. Give them a gooa
range, and access to plenty of water,
tfufd ^lfey will increase, multiply and
replenish the earth. At fifteen months
old, with ordinary oare and sufficient
food, they will weigh from 850 to 400
pounds, and, owing to their small bone,
there is less difference in weight between
a Berkshire alivo and one slaughtered
thou .any othor hogs we have over
Uuown. Where orossed by the Essex
t le hog has more size, and is, perhaps,
more industrious in " rooting" for him
self; but, in bur experience, tho niero
lerksliiro is not deflciont in this lat
Of all hogs, wo consider tho Chester
tho worBt for tho country. If it is not
ns carefully fed and groomed as a fice
horse, it bocomos mangy, fails to put on
flesh, nnd produoos nothing but bono
and ears. A few years ago there was a
(.ragelfor White. Ohestors. People sent
''io Ohester county, Pa., and paid as
high as 850 to $00 for a pair of pigs,
whiob, on arrival^'thoy wore found to
be large-oared, big-boned, thriftless an
minis, which needed as much attention
as a lady's lap dog. In a fuvorable cli
mate, with unremitting attention and
hand-feeding, the Ohester will attain ftn
immense size in throe :,yearB. Bat^ho
oan afford to wait three yoars for ? ba
con hog ? Who can afford to pay this
attention to his hogs ? A good Berk
shire sow will produce three largo lit
ters in fifteen months, and, if in proper
condition, will raiso ovory one of them.

Praise the Children. f
Thero is an idea that praise is too
good a thing'to be givon to tho chil
dren : that it too rieh for their mental
and moral digestion. Some paronts aro,
so afraid that a child will grow proud
that they never prai?s him, and this
course is of tap disastrous. It. is apt to
produce too much ' self Assertion?for
self-assertion is a legitimate outgrowth
of withholding commendation from one
who is entitled to it, or it will endanger
self-diBtrnst or melancholy hopelessness
I of disposition.. ? Praise is sunshine to a
child, and there is no child that does
not need it. It is the high reward of
ouo'a struggle to do right. Thomas
Hughes sayb that you can nover get a
man's best out of him without praise.
Yon certainly can never get a child's
best out of him without preiao. Many
a sensitive child, wo believe, dies of
hunger for lack of kind recommenda
tion. Many a child' starving for the
praise a parent should give runs off ea
gerly after the1 designing flattery of
others. To withhold praise where' it
is dne is dishonest, and in the case of a
child snoh a course often leaves a sting
ing sense of injustice. Motives of com
mon justice as well as a regard for the
f ntnre of the child should influence the
parent to give generous prniso to all
who deserve ik*c Of course there is a
difference in tho constitution of chil
dren ; Borne cannot bear so muoh praise
as others, and some need a great deal.
It should never be indiscriminate. We
remember a wonderfnl woman who
taught a school in one village until she
had educated a part of three genera
tions. She was ouo of the most suc
cessful of teachers, but her success lay
in her gift of; praising With din crimina
tion. A bad boy who was, a good
scholar got praises for his brilliancy
sandwiched between her abomination of
his bad behavior, and so was won to a
better life; and wo reeall a good girl
who had no gift for learning rapidly,
bnt whe was saved from utter despair
by-the praise she got tor her -nnfeiring
industry. Into the discouraged heart
of tho ohildren the'prais? of the teacher
oumo like sunlight; . and the virtues,
like fruit, oan only ripen in sunshine.
A Ghastly Pun.
Some yeartP ago, when cannibalism
was in vogue among the South Sea Is
landers, an English man-of-war put into
ono of thsFiji grpup. Among the party
who went ashore was An assistant surgeon
named Ben Jon son?a fat and per
verse person, , *?ho was always quarreling
with a young [midshipman named Man
ners. There were two boats; and as
the surgeon, who had wandered off
from the party when they landed, had
not rejoined them when they were
ready to return to the ship, they~put off
without him, but left one of the boats
so that he might follow. The captain
was annoyed and a little alarmed at
their reappearance without JbnBon, and
instantly dispatched a boat's crow,
under Manne?, in search of the missing
officer. They found his body in tho
midst of a number of savages who' Were
just preparing to devour him, but who
fled at the sight of the sailors. Tho
poor fellow was not half cooked. A

remains of the unfortunate Joncon,
