A corespondent of the Country Gen
tleman writes as follows: The belief
is becoming general that manure is most
profitably, applied for tho orop or for
the soil as a top. dressing. The fine
manure in the Watm-yarris in August is
almost invariably need for a top-dress
ing for wheat, But tho coarser manure
is more generally drawn on ground in-.
tend?l for.cprn in spring, and plowed
under. Then if the season is dry it
sometimes remains unchanged at the
bottom of the> furrow, and gives little
benefit to the orop, as the roots will not
reaoh it, especially wheto the ground
has been deeply plowed. A quick,
early start is what corn needs to make a
vigorons growth. Top-dressing would1
give thin, if it were practicable, which,
however, is not always the case with
coarse unfermented manure. There are
two difficulties?one in drawing heavy
loads of manure over newly?plowed
gronnd, often when tbe soil is filed with
water.- - The second is in properly pre
paring and planting fields covered with
ooarse, strawy manure.
There are several methods of overcom
ing thoso difficulties. Some of the corn
ground may be plowed in fall, and
manure spread over it from sleds when
covered with snow. Unless on a hill-1
Bide, there will be little loss from wash
ing away tho mannre by this method.
Tho fall plowing will be excellent for j
the crop. A second plan is to draw and
leave in heaps and spread these over the
plowed surfnco aa the field is plowed.
The third and altogether best plan is to
draw and spread as early in winter and
spring as possible, leaving snow and
spring rains to dissolve the soluble parts
of the manure and incorporate them
with the soil. When plowed in May,
most of the strength of the mannre will
be found leaked out of it, and what is
left will operate as a muloh to keep the
ground moist and light. The amelior
ating aa t/o11 as enriching effect of a
good coating of manure, even if mostly
straw, will astonish any ono who tries
it. Then plow tho ground thus manured
very shallow. Four or five inches is
sufficient on most soils?. Using a joint
er, a very good seed-bed can often be
had by plowing only 3 1-2 inohes. The
shallower the better, providing the sod
is well turned under, especially a olover
sod. Shallow plowing for corn keeps
the manure near the surface, thus giving
the advantage of top-dressing. The
manuro is also nearly in ooutaot with
the decaying aod. The fermentation
whioh speedily follows keeps the soil
warm and moist, and corn grows muoh
more vigorously than when three or
fonr inohes of cold sub-soil aro turned
to the surf aco for a seed-bed. After the
manuro and sod begin to rot, generally
at tho second time cultivating, have a
narrow cultivator with long slanting
teeth whioh will tear up the soil, decay
ing sod and mannre aa deep as plowed.
Much of Jbe manure between the rows,
now mostly rotted, will bo brought to
the surface, while that under the hills
will remain for the oorn to strike into.
This plan secures all the advantages of
top-droBsing with nono of its disad
vantages. No ammonia is lost, for the
loose earth will absorb it, and the solu
ble elements of the manure aro incor
porated with the soil as they could bo
by no other plan. ?
THE DBESSED WEIGHT OP ANIMALS.
Farmers, who have had but littlo ex
porienee in feeding animals for the
market, are often disappointed because
their beef and pork does not weigh as
muoh as they thought it would. They
aro likely to overlook certain points
whioh ought always to be taken into ac
count when estimating the dreesed
weight of animals.
1. Age, An old animal will not dress
as muoh in proportion to its looks as a
yonng and growing one.
2. Tho degree of fatness. A creature
whioh will weigh a groat deal more
ban ono equally as large, but which
has not been well-fattened.
' 8. Amount of grain whioh has been
fed. An animal whioh had twenty or
thirty bushels of meal will dresB muoh
heavier than one whioh was in equall.y
good order when the fattening was
commenced, and whioh may look
equally well when it is finishod, but
which has been fed only half as mnoh
i. Length of time in whioh grain has
been fed. A creature whioh has been
mealed for five or six months will
weigh more than one which has Had
about the same quantity of meal, uut
has been fed only half as long.
In all cases liberal and long contin
ued feeding is ossential to the attainment
of any great success in fattening ani
mals of any kind.
Blow to Secure Healthy Ventilation.
In view of the great difficulty of pro
curing sufficient in-door ventilation,
without incurring rheumatiferous
draughts under existing systems of
house-warming, an English sanitarian
has published a simple suggestion,
whioh, even ii its hygienio bearing be
not fully appreciated, will commend
itself to all economical housekeepers in
this land of protected coal monopolies.
It is evident that heating by means of
steam or hot-water pipes, or rail worse,
by means of air-tight stoves, gives no
opportunity for a renewal of oxygen in
the air vitiated by respiration; it is
also evident that to supply the ventila
ting out-current cf an open fire-place,
chilling draughts will enter through
cracks of doors and windows, or if these
be carefully and effectually stopped,
sewer gas is likely to be suoked up from
drains and waste-pipes. On the other
hand, furnaces are ordinarily so
imperfectly constructed that tho outer
air which they purport to introduce,
is charged with gasses . of combust
ion from the fire-oh amber. To
obviate al these troubles it is pro
posed that we should accustom our
selves to permit air to enter our
houses in sufficient volume to avoid lo
calized currents, while the temperature
of the room is kept much lower than is
the custom, and the requisite body
warmth maintained by the wearing of
thicker clothes in the house." Aside
from the important matter of ventila
tion, it is argued that this plan would
I much dimmish the frequency of dis
eases of the respiratory organs, whioh
in tho winter season are commonly ex
oited by the sudden transition from
heated rooms to the cold external air,
the change rather than the coldness of
the respired atmosphere being the
source of danger. Mr. RawJinson's
proposition bos assuredly the recom
mendation of common sense, and, al
though our mutable climate presents
exceptional " cold snaps" when present
I comfort becomes predominat above
potential healthfulness, its adoption at
all possible times may be beneficially
advised for the American pu blic. whose
bronohitio tendencies are undoubtedly
largely due to the general fondness for
overheating and abhorrenoe of fresh
How to Advertise.
A writer in the New York Evening
Mail on the soienos of advertising says :
" As the object of advertising is to in
form the greatest number of people in
the most ofleotive manner, this end is
best attained by announcements in the
Columns of the press. There are other
methods of advertising, and novel ideas
spring up every day, but suoh are for
the moment only; and tho experience of
all first-class and successful houses in
duces them to do their advertising in
the newspapers, and there alone. Next
comes the question as to what is the
best method of securing the attention
of newspaper reader*. It is very simple
and ooneists in continuous advertising.
The retail merchants err when they in
sert a large advertisement for ono time
only, permitting weeks to pass before
the order is repeated. Snob fitful, spas
modic announcements doubtless pro
duce a certain effect, but it is the steady,
constant advertiser who prospers in the
end. The beet way is to advertise lib
erally and continuously, and all who
have sufficient courage and capital to in
vest without stint have found them
selves rewarded even beyond their ex
pectations. The secret of success lies in
uninterrupted advertising on a small
scale, varied by occasional 'spread a' on
suitable occasions. Every paper has its
regular readers, and tho continued ad
vertisement familiarizes them with the
name and object of the firm. Moreover,
the interests of firm and paper become
united ; the reader, who bnys the paper
beoauso he likes it, looks at the title of
the house day after day, and in time
comes to like the name. When an extra
announcement is made, he reads the
advertisement through with attention,
as the utterance of a familiar friend,
and gives attention and consideration
to the matter disonssed ?"
An English physioian who bos been
visiting the islands of the Turkish arch
ipelago with a view to studying the
oauBo and nature of leprosy, reports
that in the Crete singular villages exist
where every being is a leper, and where
the population is increasing. There is
no description made public of tho ap
pearance of things in theso villages, but
the view must ho a strange ono. A vil
lage where every porson?man, woman
and child?is a prey to the most loath
some diseases ; whore there is marrying
and giving marriago, must be a singular
as well an a saddening spectacle. That
snob a condition of things should be,
that a government should allow such a
horrible disease to be perpetuated and
extended, is a snflloient commentary
upon the character of the empire, and
perhaps a snflloient cause for interven
tion by other nations, in the inter est of
humanity. ' l> . - . * \
Tho Speculating (fever lu San Fran
The San Franoiao Chronicle says that
the stock-gambling fever in that city
has spread among the laboring or pro
ducing classes of that oiiy like a con
tagion. It approximates an epidemic,
and savings banks with few exoeptionB
have felt the effect. The women among
the pratrons of these institutions of
trust are largely represented in the
class that have withdrawn , their savings
for purposes of stock speculation. As
a rule, in this respect women are found
to be more reokless than men. They very
rarely leave a balance on deposit after
the fever seizes them. It has been the
custom for depositors in savings banks
not to withdraw thoir balances during
the month just preceding in terest-day,
by permitting them to remain with the
banks their percentage on their savings
was inoreased. Tho effect of tho Btock
excitement first began to be appreciated
by tho banks early in December. Then
depositors who1 could have no special
demand upon them for money save for
speculative purpose, drew largely upon
their litte hoardB, and as the month ad
vanced the number of drafts daily in
creased. Many of the investments axe
unsafe, naturally. Inquiry has elicited
tho fact that men and women of tho
working olasses have bought largely of
the comparatively worthless stocks,
which have risen sympathetically with
tho stocks of the bonanza mines. There
is hardly an instance of speculating
depositors returning their principal
with or without profit. In one of the
banks a servant girl had $670 on deposit.
She drew.the money, and within a week
lost it in the Phil. Sheridan stock.
Another Vends In the Field.
Ancient Borne is gradually yielding
np to the light its art treasures. Dur
ing Ohristmas week some of tho work
men employed in clearing away a quan
tity of fallen walls and debris for the
purpose of leveling the newly-marked
out streets upon the Esquiline, un
earthed a perfect treasnre-trove of sculp
ture. Among marble gods and god
desses, discovered in all stages of frac
ture, was a Venus of the purest Parian
marble, whioh the London Times cor
respondent says is considered the gom
of tho lot. The statue is perfectly
nude, and is the figure of a lovely girl
of seventeen. She stands with both
feet upon the ground closo together,
the left a couple of inohes further back,
with the heel very slightly raised. A
moment before sho was erect, but she
had dropped into a easier position, with
the left knee bent forward and inward
against the right. Her left hand is
resting on tbe knot of hair at the back
of her head, while the right holds the
fill it ehe has already passed several
times round it. In doing this she has
swayed a little over and down to tbe
right, bringing the left side forward.
The shoulders are well set back, and
the face is turned to the right, and a
little downward, showing from the front
a not quite three-quarter view. It is
thought that the statue will take rank
above tho Medioean Venus.

It. V. PiF.ncK. M. D., Buffalo, N. Y.:
Dear Sir?I had Buffered from oatarrh in an
aggravated form for about twelvo years, and
for Boveral years from bronoliial trouble.
Tried many doctors and thingn with no lasting
bonoiit. In May, '72, becoming nearly worn
out with exccsBivo oditorial labors on a papor
in Now York city, I was attacked with bron
chitis in a Hovoro form, Bnfforing almost a total
Iobh of volco. I returned homo, hero, but had
boon homo only two wooks whou I was com
fdotoly prostratod with homorrhago from tho
aiigs, having four severe bleeding spells within
two loeehs, and first three inside of nine days.
In tho Hoptombor following, I improved suffi
ciently to bo ablo to bo about, though in a very
foobloBtato. My bronchial tronblo remained,
aud the oatarrh was tonfold worse than be
fore. Every effort for roliof poomod fruitloBH.
I Boomod to bo losing ground daily. I con
tinued in this fooblo stato, raising blood
almost daily, until about tho lir.-t of March,
'75, when I bocamo so bad as to bo entirely
confined to tho houee. A friend suggested
your remedies. But I was extremoly skepti
cal that tboy would do mo good, as I had lest
all heart in VomodioB, and begun to look upon
mndicino and doctors with disgust However,
I obtained ono of your circulars, and read it
carefully, from which I camo to the conclusion
that you understood your bupiness, at least.
I finally obtained a quantity of Dr. Hago'a
Catarrh Remedy, v< or Golden Med*cal Discov
ery and rellotB," and commenced their vigor
ous ir*o according to directions. To my Hur
priBO, I noon bogan to improve Tho Discov
ery and PoUots, in a short timo, brought out a
sovoro ornption, which continuod for sevoral
weeks. I felt much bettor, my appotito im
proved, and I gainod in strength and nosh,
in throo months every vostiiio of tho catarrli
was gono, tbe bronchitis had nearly disappear
ed, had no cough whatovor, and I had ontiroly
ceasod to raiso blood; and, contrary to tho ex
pectation of somo of my friends, tho euro has
remainod pormanont. I havo had no moro
hemorrhages from the lungs, and am entirely
free from catarrh, from which I had Buffered
bo much and bo long. The dobt of gratitude
I owe tor the blessing I. havo received^ at your
hands, knows no bounds. I am thoroughly
satinfled, from my experience, that your medi
cines will master the worst forma of that
odious dieoasQ catarrh, as well at throat and
lung diseases. I have rooommondod them to
vorv many and shall ovor Bpeak in thoir praiso.
