It has been examined by thou sands of Physicians, of all schools of medicine, and there has not been one dissenting voice to the correctness of the principle; all acknowledge that it tills a vacuum in the Science of Medicine. The sick and afflicted are demanding it everywhere.

It breaks up Congestion and Inilammation by equalizing the circulation throughout every part of the system. The Senior Proprietor of the Au^uNta Vacuum Cure, Dr. C. T. Noncnoss, Is well known in this vicinity as a Skillful Physician. During the last Forty Years he practised medicine in Maine, chiefly in Bangor and vicinity. Patients can be assured that with ]iis expe rience they will have thorough treatment.— lie will have competent aid in his Associate.

BY ELSIE VANE. “And ye shall surely die,’’ God said, And called his angel then, who took 11 is pet), and wrote in Nature’s book These words, and all the leaves turned red. It might have been the blush of shame That rose to Nature’s cheek, when first >he knew that God the land had cursed, That blight had fallen on her name. Again on Nature’s face I see A blush, as in tl^ olden time. Although a glory half sublime . Is mingled with it, seems to me Alas I alas ! for her sad doom, Alas! for Adam’s sin ! wc say, Yet Nature wears in ner decay A charm she knew not in her bloom. A softer, sweeter tenderness, As if God's angel wrote again New words of life anil hope, and thru Imparted a new loveliness. O men, who faint witli fear of death, () men, who say there is no bloom. No life, no love beyond the tomb, Look on these glories and have faith. From buried ashes shall arise New forms of life, as iu decay Nature doth mould her Spring to-day, And bloom again in Paradise. $U$ccUancou!$. KEEPING CIDEK As there is a very large amount of cider now being made, it is of some conse quence to keep it in good condition, so that to whatever use it is applied, it should be pure. There has been so little made for several years past that there is but a small amount of real cider vinegar to be found. Fifty to seventy-five cents per gallon is asked for good vinegar, and the probability is that most sold at those prices is made up of articles that ought never to be used as food in any form. Vinegar at eating houses, and some ho tels, is not only not good, but is absolute ly disgusting. In some cases it is thick and ••ropy,” and in others sickening to taste and smell, and must be extremely unwholesome. In a late number of the Knoxville Whig, are some suggestions which may prove valuable to those who thiuk that eider is a healthful drink. It is as fol lows :— “Much of the excellence of cider de pends upon the temperature at which the tennentatiou is conducted; a point too frequently overlooked by the manufactur ers id' this liquor. As soon as expressed from the fruit, it should be strained into sulphured casks and placed in a cool situ ation where the temperature does not ex ceed 60“ Fah't—if left in the heating sun, much of the sugar is converted into vine gar by the absorption of atmospheric oxy gen, and thus the liquor becomes acid and rough. On the contrary, if the fermen tation be conducted at a low temperature, nearly the u hole of the sugar is converted into alcohol and remains in the liquor, in stead of undergoing the process of acidi fication. The acetous fermentation or the conver sion of alcohol into vinegar proceeds most rapidly at a temperature of ninety-five degrees Fahrenheit, and at a lower temper ature the action becomes slower, until at forty six degrees Fahrenheit, no such change takes place. Independently of ditt'eienees in the quality of the fruit, this is the principal cause of the superiority of the cider made by one person over anoth er, living in the same neighborhood. The one has a cooler cellar or barn than the I other to store his cider in. In practice it I has been found that sour and rough apples produce the best cider. This arises be I cause they contain the less sugar and more 1 malic acid, and the presence cf the latter impedes the conversion of alcohol into vinegar; but cider made with such apples can never equal in quality that prepared at a low temperature from fruit abounding in sugar, which, if properly strained or racked at every indication of fermentation, win seep goon mr twenty years. One very common cause of bad cider is, that it is put into unclean barrels; barrels that have become musty, or tainted in some other form, by standing through the summer with one or two gallons of dregs left in them after drawing oft' the cider. These partially putrefy and become asdis | gusting ns anything else that has passed i into the putrefactive state. When the cask j is once thorough- tainted, it is very diffi cult to sweeten it again. There is a process ol cheeking the fer ; mentation in eider so as to keep it sweet, which may he done as follows:—Take a ! strip of canvass or other thick cloth, about twelve inches long and two broad; dip it into melted brimstone; when dry, light it, and suspend it from the bung-hole of a cask, in which there are a few gallons _oi eider until the match is burnt out. The cask must be stopped for an hour or more then rolled to and fro to incorporate the fumes of the match with the cider; after which it may be tilled. Sometimes this process is resulted to for the purpose ot giving an additional flavor to the eider. To etfeet this, some powdered gingei*, cloves, iVrc., may be strewed on the match when it is made. The burning of these j ingredients with the sulphur will convey ; somewhat of their fragrance to the whole | cask of eider, lint this should be done as ' soon as the \ mous fermentation Is fully I perfected. Should fermentation return, repeat the process. If a candle goes out : on being In Id in the bung-hole, fermenta i tion iias commenced again, and carbonic | acid is present. Crockery, China & Glass.
