This Mode of Treatment, which is being
adopted by a large number of the Medical Profes

state of the Union. 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.

by equalizing the circulation throughout every part

THE RED LEAF.
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.

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.
