An Enlightened Flock. It is related ef a
worthy divine, whose field of labors was sitnated
net many hundred miles from Salem, that he
fire'aehed politic to his congregation for snch a
rnglh of time that even the oldest church mem
' bers forgut all about the gospel, and fell into a
profound ignorance with regard to creeds, forms
of worship, and cbnrch regulations. After the
clergyman's death, the elders went to consult a
celebrated divine about obtaining a successor.
"What is yon r creed I" asked the divine.
"Our creed!"
"Yes your prinriplcs what are they?"
"Oh, we are all Democrats, but two!"
"I mean, whjt is your platform your church I"
" Oh!" exclaimed one, "that is principally oak."
Woirra TrAtiSG Aoaix. When Nicholas Bid
die familiarly railed Xick iliilille was connect
ed with the United States Rank, there was an old
negro named Harry, who nsed to be loafingaround
the premises. One day, in a social mood, Biddle
said to the darkey:
"Well, what is your name, mv old faiendT"
"Harry, sir; ole Harry, sir," said the other,
touching his aleepv hat.
"Old Harry!" oaid Biddle; "why, that is the
name that they give to the devil, is it not!"
"Yes, sir." said the colorrd gentleman; "some
times ale Harry, and sometimes ole Kick."
OLD Azel Shucks tells the following anecdote
of a blacksmith in Alleghany County, New York:
Old Bill Slemmers always works his hammer in
the open air, for tbe sake of ventilation, as he
says. One of the yonng chaps from Dansville
came driving along in the woods, last Fall, and
his horse lost a shoe Well, be met old Bill, ont
a hunting, and he says:
"Stranger,-ean you tell me how far it is to a
blacksmith shop!"
".WhT, bless your sonl," says Uncle Bill, "yon're
in the shop now, but it is fonr miles to the anvil."
Filial Obedience. "How old are ye f" said
Major Eilpins to a dwarfish'yonng man.
"I wonder ye aren't right down ashamed of be

"All comes of being a dutiful child."
"When I was ten, father pnt his hand on my

"he wonld work no more on Sundays." The
master then argued with bim that it was "a case
of necessity" that the Scriptnres allowed a man
to get ont of a pit, on the Sabbath day, a beast
that had fallen is. "Yea, massa," rejoined the
Wack, "but not if he spent Saturday diggin' de

Beau Brothel had a friend, a clergyman, who
sometimes dined with him. Brnmmel nsed to say
that ho could always tell whether there was go

' asked the blessing. If the glasses indicated only

Then are many Jnhs for leisure honrs. which
may be performed without Interfering at all with
plowing, planting, and other field labor, if thry
are only thonght of in time.
l'run'inc fruit trees is too often greatly neglrc-
tod. Let this be attended to when it is too wet
to plow or plant, or to make fences. For snth
work one needs a small, than azr a "T1 i
and a good knife. A large pocket knife will sub
serve a cood uurpoio: bnt. in the absence of a
good knife, 1 take an old n'e an.1 get a giod
blacksmith to make a pruning knife, with the
blade shaped like the blade of a grain sickle or a
grass book. If the blade be fonr or tive inches
long, after It is curved, it will be long eunitgh.
Pruning raws, which are fastened on the end of
a fork bauille or pule, and nsrtl uy toe operator
while standing on the ground, are sometimes
preferable to any other tools for pruning fruit
trees. They may bo obtained at most hardware
After a tree has been pruned, cover the wonnds
with rosin and tallow, of equal parts, melted to
gether in a small kettle, and applied with a paint
Collect sawdnst, chip mannre and scrapings of
yards, and spread them around fruit trees, for
the purpose of keeping the soil loose, and promo
ting tne nealtliygrowtn or jming trees, ttitu a
broad hoe, scrape the bodies of lrnit trees, and if
the bark is already smooth, tie a rag ou the end
of a stick for a large swab, and apply thin soft
soap to the bodies and limbs for six or eight feet
above the ground.
In localities where the borer is accustomed to
work in the yellow locust, shave off and scrape
off all the ouiside or dead bark for six or eight
feet high, aud smear the bodies of the tree with
fitch and tallow, applied with a whitewash brnsh.
f the pitch aud tallow be heated too hot, it will
spoil the brnsh by burning tbe hair.
Notwithstanding all that has been said aud
written against allowing a tree of any kind to
grow ao aa to form a crotch, roost persona will
persist in permitting many young trees to grow
with two equal branches, thus forming a crotch,
which is very liable to split by the wind or by a
large burden of fruit. Procnre a carriage bolt of
the proper length, aud bore a bole through the
crotch, so that the bolt may be seen at the junc
tion of the limbs that it has been driven iu. Put a
large. washer at the bead of the bolt and one at
tbe nut, and screw it up tightly. Many a valu
able tree has been, and may be, saved in this
way from being split down at the crotch.
Some fruit trees will never produce any good
fmit, and some will not bear even poor fruit. I
had several snch trees, and every efl'ort faild to
make them bear fruit but this one. We erected
a portable fence around each one, and kept a pig
or two iu the enclosure. Four pnuels, about six
teen feet long, of light board fence were placed
around a tree, ami simply nailed together at the
corners. After the pigs had been in that pen
about a month, they were removed to another
tree. If this remedy fails to produce good fruit,
after tbey have been well mauured and regrafted,
then let "the trees be cut down. Make a high
board peu around plum trees, for young chirk
ens, and keep them t here nil til they are old enough
to run at large, and see if tbey will not destroy or
frighteu away the enrculio, and thus save a crop
of plums. The experiment is worthy of trial, as
it promises good results.
Some people do their churning with a sheep,
and keep him tied to a tree or tethered iu the
yard when he is not churning." Let liim be tied
to a fruit tree, after protecting it so that be can
not gnaw the bark off. and see if this means will
not produce a crop of plums, cherries, peaches, or
other fruit.
Theidea is quite too prevalent among many far
mers that tbe soil needs bnt one plowing for
buckwheat. But my own excrieuce on this
poiut is that there is no other crop of grain that
will pay better, for twice plowing, than buck
wheat. If the ground is soil ground, or wlie.it,
oats or barley stubble, it ought to bo plowed iu
It would be a good practice, if there is not too
much clay in the subsoil, to plow it three or four
inches deeper than usual. Then plow the ground
again about the first of July, or when the grain
is to bo sown.
When thero are Cauada thistles, or other nox
ious plants, tbe plowing should bo deferred until
the last of Mar, if there is not mnch sod, because
thistles will be mnrh more subdued if they bo
allowed to grow a few iuchts high, before the
ground is plowed, than to plow it before such
plants have grown aay, or but very little. Cor.

Caltare af Care, far Faddcr. ,
Every farmer who baa had any experience in
cultivating corn for fodder will, I think, agree
with me that it is one of the most profitable, crops
that can bo raised for feeding purposes. My ex
perience has been mostly sowing in drills. Iu
the first place, the ground selected should lie
rich aud productive; then take a plow aud fur
row one way. about three feet apart; drop the
corn in the furrows at the rate of twenty-lite
grains to every foot; then follow and cover with
tbe hoe. This gives an opportunity to work it
with a plow or cultivator, aud thus prevent all
grass aud weeds from hindering its growth. Fod
der raised in this way may besonu as late as
the middle of June. When grass begins to fail,
I CmMhis an excellent feed for cons. A little
thrown to them each morning will not only keep
them in good condition, bnt will mnch increase
both the quantity and quality of milk. I am
satisfied if every farmer havingadozen cows will
cultivate half an acre or more each season he will
feel abundantly repaid for his time aud laber. If
wished fur winter use, it can be cut and cured in
the shock, and when well cured, cattle and sheep
will eat it in preference to bay. Farmers, givo
it a trial. Cor. Ohio Farmer.
Prapagattaa af Carraau.
In order to raise currant bushes from cuttings,
so that they may have a clean stem and bnt one
set of roots, and those at tbe lower end, like
seedlings, I take a cutting about ten inches long,
and prepare it in the usual way, by cutting off
tne tower end square, linen cutout tne onus
or eyes, excepting the three onr four uppermost
oues, which are reserved to make the top. I then
stretch a liue, start tbe cnttings by its side, eight
inches apart in the row, their ends one inch in
the ground, and mould tbem up fonr or five in
ches in depth, like corn hills when planted in
drills. When they become well established by
having roots, which will be in lnid-snmmer, level
tbe mould of earth back toils former place.
Should any roots have started from the intended
stem, clean them off aud plant them out at one
tear old. The advautageof growing bushes in
the above manner is that tbey t ill not send up
suckers as those do that have been grown by set
ting the cuttings deep in the ground, aud allow
ing two or more sets of roots to grow. Cor.

Cheap Saasaaer Frew far Here.
A correspondent of lhoJIome$tead gives the fol
lowing as an economical manner of summer fettl
ing bogs, practiced by one af his neighbors. He
practictd this plan for many years, aud fonud it
ua excellent one:
"A few rods of grass-plat convenient to the
pen is reserved for this purpose, and is mannred
lij the weekly suds from the wash-room. Com
mencing at one side of tbe plat, a large basket of
the thick, short grass is mowed each morning
while the dew is on, and a part given to the
snineat each feeding, three times a day. By
the time the last portion of the grass is cut, the
first is ready to be cnt again, and in this way the
ground is mowed aver many times during tbe
summer, w bile the grass is kept short, thick, ten
der and sweet. It keeps the hogs in a healthy
growing condition they are fed with 'as mnrh
as they will eat every day, and bnt little addi
tional food is required beside the slops from tbe
Grape Mildew Prevented. A gentleman
who has visited the experiment gronnds at
Washington, informs ns that some experiments
foe preventing the mildew of the grape, b erec
ting a cheap roof over them, seemed to answer
the purpose perfectly. The roof, he states, may
le simply a board sixteen inches wide, nailed to
the post. On a hnndred rarities treated in this
way, not any mildew waa seen; while all the
same yard were entirely mined. Fnrther ex
periments are necessary. Country Gentleman.
Take Case of Tkk.ks. Ho who has planted
trees has done well, bnt he who has watched
them and cared for their early growth has done
better. There need be very little said about
pruning, were the young trees properly looked
after. The rubbing off a superfluous bnd here,
pinching a rampant shoot there, and the jodi-
(Scions nse of tbe pocket knife as occasion require.
win soon put a young orcaard in tbe way it
should go.
Salt for Plum Trees. It is said that the
application of a half peck of salt, in the spring,
aronnd a pnlm tree, will be fonnd very effica
cious in promoting its growth and frni'tfnlness,
and also in protecting it from disease. Salt is
an essential ingredient in all composted manures
intended for plum trees, and is highly promo
tive of health and fruitfhlness.

The Origia af Tipprraaac Baltic Oraaaa.
From the Indianapolis Sentinel )
There are many citizeus of the State jrt living,
especially in the southern portion, who were per
sonally acquainted with Gen. Clark. He was
one of thirty-one children by the same father and
mother, twenty-nine sons ami two rlancuters.
He was a cousin of Gen. George Rogers Clark, of
Kentucky, wno was also well knoxtn in frontier
life. Gen. Marston G. Clark left his home in Vir
ginia in the spring of 1782, being then nineteen
years old. After traversing tbe "dark and bloody
ground," (Kentucky,) he went into the then
North west Territury, crossing the Ohio Rivera
few miles above the falls, after which he was a
citizen of Indiana Territory and Slate until his
death, which occurred at his farm in Washington
County abont tbe year 1845 or 1846. He was
with "Mad Anthony" General Wayne in sev
eral of his expeditions against the Indians. He
was with Gen. William Henry Harrison in most
of bis campaigns in tbe Northwest. He once told
the writer that he was persoaally acquainted
with the celebrated Shawnee warrior Trcnmseh,
aa well as bis brother, the Prophet, who com
manded the Indians at the battle of Tippecanoe.
With General Harrison at the latter battlo, in
1811, he aud Col. Taylor were apixiinted by the
conunau ling General to si lee t a camping ground
for tbe army for the night. While Col. Taj lor.
was waiting for a guard to be detailed to accom
pany them, Gen. Clark proceeded alone and selec
ted the place nhich, next morning tcranie the
battle-field of Tippecanoe. The judicious selec
tion he made is apparent to e erv; one n ho hat
eter vfsited thathatllc-ficld. It is on au elevated
piece of ground overlookiuc the wet. swamnr
prairie in front, with a small creek in the rear of
tlio army. Inc. attack of the Indians was made
from the front or prairie side of tbe encampment,
aud tbe marks in the -trees yet standing show
that the Indians' shots were far above tbe heads
of most of the army. To tbe sound judgment of
urn. uiarK in tue seiccuou oi mat naiuc-neld was
attributed the safety of tho army from butchery
and annihilation. Gen. Clark waa a man with a
strong and iron-like constitution and an indomit
able will. He was abont six feet in height,
straight as an arrow; wjth a .strong muscular
fame. In the earlier days of tbe Territory be
dressed in tbe Indian stjle, and could only be
distinguished from them by the color of the'akin.
He held many oflires oft rust and emnlnment,
among which was that of Indian Agent. He rep
resented Washington County in the Legislature
of both Territory and State. He was a warm
supporter of Gen. Jackson's administration, and
also of Gen. Harrison in the memorable Presi
dential campaign of 1840, and was selected by the
Electoral College as their messenger to carry tbe
vote of Indiaua to Washington, which he did,
dressed in full Indian costume. The last time he
visited this city waa during the session of the
Legislature, 1842-3. He. was then in his seventy
third year. J. H. B. N.

Years of experience have made the counters
who have been longest employed marvelonsly
expert aud almost infallible, their fingers passing
from one nnto to another with Jthe celerity and
regularity of some wondcrfnl machine. The lady
who sits nearest to tbe cbirf of tbe room, and
who has come to be considered a sort of assistant
to him, having sometimes performed bis duties
during his absence, has been engaged in the-di-vision
ever since its organization in 1862, and
probably has no rival in accuracy and dexterity
in counting. On many occasions she has counted
liny iivuMuua uuico iu uue iiay. An tue nomi
nal hours of labor are from nine to three o'clock,
aud as at least half an henr must be deducted
from this for necessary in terruptions and for Inncb,
toe time occupied in conniing incse niry tann
aand notes was live and atialf hours. This at the
rate of nine thousand and ninety every honr, one
hundred and fifty every minute, and two and a
half every second! The lady informs ns that it
is no unusual feat for her to "pick np" a bundle
containing fonr thousand legal-tender notes fh
tweuty mmntes! We donbt whether this can bo
excelled. If any gentleman thinks it can, let him
try the experiment of simply tapping his finger
on a table at the above rate and we predict that
at the end of half an hone's trial be will change
his mind. There are other ladies who are almost
aa rapid and accurate. Tliey arc sometimes called
upon, with others equally as skillful from tbe re
demption division, to visit otber'cUieK, when tbe
Treasury offices in those places are to be examin
ed, and to assist in counting the Government
funds there.
Tbrongh this division asd under Jhese skillful
fingers has passed every note, whether legal-tender
or fractional, which has been issued by the,
TJuited States sinee the beginning of the rebellion
every uote-which we have ever bandied or seen
as well as all the good notes, and many millions
of imperfect bonds and notes which were never
pnt in circulation. The tatal'valne of the money
which'has been cannted in this division previous
tn tbe first day of July, 1872, was, according to
the Treasurer's last anunal report, nearly two
thousand nine hundred million dollars more
than two hundred and twenty-three millions of

Cronp is one of the most dreaded complaints
to which children are liable. It is an inflamma
tion of (hat delicate membrane which, continued
from tbe mouth, Hues the whole inner surface 'if
tbe larj ux ami w indpipe, and finally of the bron
chial tubes, or air passages.
Both from the importance of its situation and
tberapidity wilbw hirh it runs its course, croup
one of the most dreaded and fatal affections iu
tbe range of juvenile diseases.
Tbe symptoms begin with restlessness, which
in a few hours is followed by wheezing in the
threat and hoarseness, most heard during sleep,
while a short dry conoh soon after succeeds.
atteuded with a tightness and constriction in the
throat, indicated by the child frequently raising
its bands to the part as if to remove some
obstruction. The difficulty of breathing becomes
rapidly more distressing, and the face assumes
an aspect of great anxiety ; the veins in tbe neck
become swollen and knotted, or varicose, and
the voice, every time the child speak or conghs,
has a sharp metallic ring, which soon settles iu
a steady sound, like the crow or crnnpy noise
made by fowls when caught aud held in tbe
hand that character, in fact, which has given tn
the disease the popular name which It bears.
Thecongh, at first dr, is after a time attended
by a thick, ropy expectoration, which, clingiug
like glue to the fauces, and extremely difficult "to
remove, causes tbe child great suffering to expel,
the patient appearing half suffocated in its abor
tive attempts to void the adhering whitish
phlegm. With these symptoms come ea
thirst, brat and considerable fever; the pnlse is
quick and vibrating, while the efforts of the child
to obtain air cause it tn arch tbe neck back in a
manner most distressing to witness, till the
anxiety of c-iuiiteiiauce and difficulty of inspira
tion increasing, the little patient expires abont
the third dav. strangulated from the interruption
of air to the lung-.
The paroxtsiiiH of this disease nsnally come on
in the evening, and Isreouies intensified about
midnight, the patient seemiug free and better

In common practice, tho cohesion of mortar is
greatly impaired by using ton large a portion of
sand; it should never exceed two pn rt 3 Vr mea
sure to one of lime patv. A cak of lime weigh
ing two hundred and eighty pounds, made into
eight cubic feet of lime paste, should be mixed
with sixteen bushels of damp sand. The notion
used to be generally riitertaiiied that the longer
lime waa slaked before it was used, tbelietter
would lie the mortar made of it. This, ho ever,
is not thecal with our common fat lime and
sand mortars. The sand should be mixed with
the slaked lime as soon as the latter becomes
cold, and no more water should bo employed than
will reduce the lime toa thick paste. Iu prepar
ing mortar, the unslaked lime should he placed
on ho.ird'.nnd sheltered from the sun and rain; it
should In open alnite and surrounded with suine
sand. The water nrtessary to slake limn shnuld
be iHiuretl iitwii it with anyeuitable vessel, and
care should be taken to stir the lime so as to
bring the water into contact with every portion,
when it may be left until all the vapor has
passed off. The (and may now be incorporated
with the lime by mrana of a boe or a shovel; aud,
if necessary, a little water may be added to pro
dnee a homogeneous, consistent paste, wheu it is
reaily for use. Sand from the sea-shore should
never be employed for making mortar witbont
being first washed with fresh water, because the
salt left in such sand is liable to absorb moisture
and prevent the mortar becoming hard. In put
ting np walls of brick or stone, care should be
taken that the stouos or bricks be moistened be
fore they come iu contact with the mortar.
Every brick and stone should be laid in a good
lied of mortar, and sbonld receive a blow to fix
it firmly. The bncks should not bo laid merely,
aa in commou custom, hut forced down so ns to
press the mortar into all the pores and cre ices.
The superintendent of a buildiug should give
his personal attention to tho vertical joints in the
nails, as the masons -frequently neglect to fill
them up with mortar. Scientific American.
Hair Cnttiag.
We have always thought that it is a vicious
habit to let the hair accumulate on tbe heads of
children. The trstrffimry of an eminent French
physician, M. Krrdrriqne, proves that injudicious
parents, in seeking to embellish tho outnard
forms of their little ones, often unconsciously sap
their strength. The following is an apt case iu
A little girl, aged three years' of good health in
general, had her hair grow excessively long du
ring the course of a few months. She was a
beautiful child, but had latterly wasted without
any apparant cause, lieconiing dnll and npathe
tie, losing her appetite and strength, without
any nrgauir lesion being discemable. She was
placet! upon a tonic regimen, with chalybeates,
urn niiuuui. deriving material oeneni, until oer
hair was cut short, at the suggestion of a friend,
from which time she rapidly gained strength.
It wonld appear from this case that the econ
omy had suffered a loss in tho expenditure of
blood necessary for the secretions of an abundant
crop of hair. M. Krederiqne considers that it is
a formation of the coloring matter which chiefly
exhausts the blood, as this is formed at the ex
pense of the hrt'tuatosine.
Wetting Bricks. Few people, except buil
ders, areof aware the advantages of wetting bricks
before laj ing them. A wall twelve inches thick,
built of good mortar, with brick well soaked, is
stronger, iuetery respect, than one sixteen in
ches thick bnilt dry. The reason of this is, that
if the bricks are saturated with water ther will
not abstract from the mortar the moisture which
is necessary to crystallization, and, on the con
trary, they will unite chemically witb the mor
tar, and become as hard as a rock. On the other
hand, if the bricks are put np dry, they imme
diately take all tbe moistnre from the mortar,
and leave it too dry to harden, and the conse
quence is, that when a building of this descrip
tion is taken down, or tumbles down of its own
accord the mortar falls from it like so mnch sand.
To Fix Carpets on Floors. The labor that
housekeepers hate every Spring and Fall, of ta
king out and putting in tacks when they raise
their carpets for dusting, should have suggested
a much more convenient and simple plan for ef
fecting tbe job. In some places small iron rings
are fastened into the floor. The edges of the car
pet, or the binding, have hooks sewed or other
wise fastened iu. and the rings serve as eyes to
these hooks. AU tbe labor required in taking
carpets np, or putting them down, is tn hitch
these hooks to the rings or unhitch tbem. There
is no noise of hammering, no nails required, and
the job is a work of bnt a few minutes. Tbe
stage carpets in tbe theatre are laid pretty much
in the same manner.
To Remove Foul Air from Wells. It is well
known that many aayfdenta occur tn persons
going down into wells to clean them, owing to
the noxious gas in such places. To remove the
gas before descent is made into any well, a quan
tity of burned but unslackrd lime should be
thrown down. This, when it cornea in contact
with whatever water is below, seta free a great
aroonnt of heat in the water and lime, which
rushes upward, carrying all the deleterious gases
with it; after which descent may be made with
perfect safety. The lime also alwirbs carbonic
acid in tbe well.
