DRY EARTH SYSTEM I
For the Sewage of Towns, Factories,
Hospitals, Prisons, Hotels and
Private Houses.
VMPLK experience has shown the Dry Earth
System to be mpre efficient in preventing foul
smells*, and far less co.-tlv in construction and re
pairs than the Water Closet System ; ami that it is
in all respects entirely satisfactory, whether lor the
Sick Room or for constant use.
The Earth Closet offers to all, in town and conn- I
try, every benefit possessed by the Water Closet, at
far less coat, with the additional advantages, that it
is portable, and can be moved to the bedside in the ’
sickroom.
It promises more in immunity from offensive !
odors, from infection in disease, and in the saving
of fertilizers than has ever been accomplished by
a single in\ ention.
In the COMMODE, the apparatus and earth res- j
ervoir are self-contained, and u movable pail takes j
the place of the vault.
Eor use in Bed Rooms, Hospital Wards, Infirm
aries Ac., the Commode is invaluable. It is entire
ly fro from those faint, deforesting tutors, common
to portable water closets and night stools, and through
it* admission one of the greatest miseries of human
life, the foul smells of the sick room, and one ot the
most frequent means of communicating infection,
may he entirely prevented,

KtK.IL ITEMS.
Sulphur is highly recommended as a
deodorisor. The Maine Farmer gives an
ins unce of its effects in removing the
offensive odor from a dairy house where a
skunk had been killed.
From carefully conducted experiments,
by different persons, it has been ascer
tained that one bushel of corn will make
little over 10 1-2 pounds of pork, gross.
A cultivator uses cut cornstalks as a
mulch for his hills of strawberry plants,
and finds advantage in it that the mulch
ing material is free from seeds, and the
strawberry plants in the spring send up
the shoots through the cut stuff and the
fruit is kept from the earth and the soil,
and is cleaner.
In the summer, old potatoes should be
peeled and soaked in cold water several
hours before they are cooked. This
makes them nearly as dry and good a»
when first dug in autumn. Old potatoes
should be put in cold water, with a little
salt in the pot. Boiling slowly—the slow
er the better. If the water stops boiling,
they are apt to tie watery. A correspon
dent of the Country Gentleman weighed
the hay that he had bought as a ton by al
lowing 500 cubic feet, ond found it weigh
ed only 1480 pounds. The hay was
mostly timothy, with some clover and
white daisy. I'bc hay was over a base
ment, part two and part four feet deep,
pressed with straw, but on pitching he
found it was not as solid as he expected.
An Australian farmer recommends that
cows should be given twice a day one
pound of maize siftings, two pounds of
chaff, and a tablespoonful of salt, well
dampened. He tried it two years ago,
being short of keep, and his cows, which
otherwise would have gone dry, doubled
their milk and continued in milk all the
writer, and were fat and sleek.
The Essex Banner asserts that small
quantities of sunflower seed, mixed with
the food of a horse, will impart a flue
glo-s to ids hair, while it is also a cure
tor founder if given immediately after the
ailment is discovered. In the latter ease
about a pint of the, seed should be mingled
with the otits or chopped feed, when a
cure will be effected.
A distinguished poulterer says: “It is a
well known fact to owners of poultry that
occasional use of onions, mixed and fed
to poultry with their other food, is one of
the best ways of keeping a yard of poultry
in health. I am afraid it has not received
the attention and use that its merits really
demand. 1 am well satisfied that the use
of this vegetable would prevent three
fourths of the disease that a poultry yard
is subject to.”
Many families about tow ns and suburbs
of cities, who have not pasture and con
veniences for keeping a cow, might keep
a milking-goat to great advantage; they
are easily cared for, and not costly to
keep; may be fed on the slops of the
kitchen, if milked regularly twice a day,
one will yield a sufficiency for a small
family. Goat’s milk is very healthy, very
nourishing, and is often prescribed for the
sick during convalescence.
-.onehenge, in his work on the horse,
tl.'nks putting a lump of rock salt in the
ranger for tne horse to lick, is the only
safe and useful way of giving salt to
horses. He thinks given in this way the
1 . se will thrive better for the season. He
says that generally a pound of rock salt
will last a horse nearly a month. He has
not found that the use of salt increases the
thirst except when at first given.
A poor farmer cannot conceal the tact
that he is a poor farmer. All his surround
ings proclaim the verdict against him—
his horses,cattle, wagons, harness, ploughs,
fences—even wife and children bear silent
but unmistakable evidence against him.
On the other hand, all these things will
testify favorably on behalf of the good
farmer. Every passer-by can reaa the
