Mrs. Jobbs requests me to ask if anybody can account for the strange affinity which exists be tween her husband's latch-key and old Monon gabela whiskey. Sirs. Jobba is a plain, common sense woman, don't believe in your puostly tap pings or table schottisches; bnt there is a spirit ual affinity which pozzies her brains at least fonr nights in a week, and she would like it explained. About a week ago, Jobbs came home iry late; Mrs. Jobbs was siting' in the parlor, waiting for her lord. She had se eral times hinted to him her suspicious of Ibe intimate connection between the tno keys; but Jobbs looked darkly my steri ous, anil did nut confess. Ou this occasion, al though Jobbs saw at least half a dozen boles, he couldn't make the latch key tit. After describ ing innumerable triangles and FemicinJes oer the newly-painted door, he inquired: " Wife, are j on there I" " Yes, my dtar, do j on want to get in V "I shouldn't mind it for a few minutes. Yon think I aiu't all right, but I'll convince yon, old woman. That 'aBinity' of yours is all humbug, for, j on see, the whiskey's run down in my anus and won't let the latch-key get in the hole. Thiugs that't. got an affinity don't fret and n or ry one another that way." This bit of sophistry so overwhelmed Mrs. Jobbs that she rushed up stairs in despair, and forgot to let in Jobbs, who, consequently, rolled himself up in the door-mat, and made a night of it ou the front steps. Is there no philosopher who will satisfactorily explain to Mrs. Jobbs this "affluityf" Other equally anxiuus w ives onld also like to know something about it. OLD Deacon Meekful, of Nmv Bedford, is a pas sionate man, eten if he is pious and good. Some months since the Deacon was attacked with rheu matic fever; and suffered terribly for some w eeks. As soon as ho conld get out be hobbled to a bank where he kept an account, and was greeted by the cashier with a frieudly.smile. "Why, Dea con," said the chashicr, " Where hav e you been for some w eeks I" "Sick, sir," growled the Dea con, who supposed the questioner should have known that be had been sick. "What was the matter, Dencoii !" the cashier asked, not seeing the savage frown ou the old fellow's face. "Bbeumatie fecr, sir," was the short answer. " Indeed! Now tell me, Deacon, is the rheumatic fever a painless disease f "Painluss!" roared the Deacen; "yes, sir, damned painless. It is one of the most pleasant diseases I ever had in ror life, you cused eternal fool." The cashier asked no more questions that morning. IT was at the second battle of Bull I'nn that a cannon ball carried off a poor soldier's Irg. "Car ry mo to the rear!" he cried, to a tall lankee companion, who hud been fighting by his side. The Yankee caught the wounded soldier up, and as ne was about to put Ului across tin snouiuer, another canuon ball carried away the poor fel low's head. The Yaukee, however, in the confu sion, did not nortec this, but proceeded with bis burden toward the rear. "What are you carry ing that thing fort- cried an oQicer. "Thiug!" returned the Yankee. "It's a man with his leg shot off. "Why, he hain't any bead!" cried the officer. The Yaukea looked at his load, mid for the first time saw that what the officer said was trne. Throw ing don h the body, he thundered out: ' Confound him! he told me it was his Irg!" How tee SrmiTB Movld. An Indianapolis genius has furnished the following statement of recent spiritual manifestations in his district: "We all of us sot round a table and put our hands onto it, and pretty soon the thing began to move, and we all begau to feel queer. It was but as blazes in the room, and dark as pitch. I tell you it was the funniest place I as ever in. The me dium was from Cincinnati, and when the table began to move be said: 'Now, if there be any sperits present, let them signify it by two slight corrolops ou the tabic,' and by gild, they corrol loped." A SOIiEii man was taken with a fit of laughter, say s the Bulletin, at a railroad station in Norwich, ou Saturday. He laughed and langhed agaiu, nobody knew why, and the bystanders concluded that be must be insane. One" asked hi m if he was ofttd taken that way. Then the sufferer arose and turned his gaze upon bis interrogator, and while he fixed him with his skinny band, and with his glittering eye. replied: "No, sir, I ueer was taken this way btfore, though Tie often thought I'd like to be; I'm going to my mother-in-law's funeral." A witlTKK in the California delivers a Sunday school address of which the following passage is an example: "Yon boysought to be kind to your little sisters. I once kuew a bad boy who struck Ills little sister a blowtner the eye. Although she didn't fade aud die in the early summer-time, when the Julie roses were blowing, with sweet words of forgiveness ou her palid lips, she rose up and hit him oer the head with n rolling-pin, so that be couldn't go to Sunday school for more thau a month, on aicotiutuf uot being able to put bis best bat on." At a hotel a short time since, a girl inquired of a gentleman at the table if his cup was out. "No," said be, " bnt my coffee is." The poor girl went away considerably confused, bnt determin ed to pay him back iu bis own coin. While at dinner the stage drove up, and set eral coming in, the gentleman asked: "Does the stage dine here I" "No, sir," replied the girl, in a sarcastic tone, "bnt the passeugers do." TltE lady who tapped her husband gently with a fan at a party the other night, and said, "Love, it's growing late, 1 think we had better go home," is the same ono who after getting home, shook the rolling pin under his nose and said, " Yon in fernal old scoundrel, j on, if you ever look at that mean, nasty, calico-faded, mackerel-eyed thiug you looked at to-night, I'll bust your head wide opeu." "James Jenkins," said a school master to his nnpil, "what is an average!" "A thing, sir, an swered the scholar promptly, "that a hen lays eggs on." "Whvdoyou say that,yn silly boy!" replied the pedagogue. "Because, sir," said the youth, "I heard a gentleman say the other day that a ben would lay, on an at i rage, a hundred and twenty eggs a y ear." A Sioux City lady went to a gallery to have ber picture taken. After putting her in position, the artist put the plate in the camera, and told her to look at a certain place on the wall.

The season for rardeua is draninc rapidly to its close. The anticipated pleasures of partaking of toe iruits oi tue garaen mat siimiiiateu toe la borer in his persistent war against insects and weeds, throngb the warm summer montbr, have been fully eujojed, and little now remains to be done except to gather the crops into the cellar- to garnirn tbe winter table, mat tliey may ami to the relish of mauy n dinner in the cold mouths that are to follow With the following general directions we close this department until the warm winds and rains of spring shall h.ivr dis soltedtbe snow bauks that have drifted over the garden fence, and the frost unlocked the soil for the reception of the sent, to be sown in the sunniest and wannest corners. The space here tofore devoted to this department will be Idled with matters of homo interest. Correspondence from those who tako any interest in these col umns will be gladly received, and the f.u.ts con tained iu such letters ill be used to add to the general interest of the department. Save Yorit Own Seh. Ktery gardener has experienced the same trouble with seeds put up for sale. That there arc honest dealers in garden seeds is beyond dispute, but so great is the de mand upon them that it is almost impossible for them to more than supply the home demand. Tbnly way to avoid the disappointment is to save your own supply. Sate only tbose from .erfect not overgrown fruit or plants of the ti:irt Hat or. After the seeds are carefully dried pick over snch of tbem, like com, squash, mel ons, encumbers, nnrapkius, beans, peas, aud the like, aud select those that are the mort perfect and plump. We know a farmer who iu the win ter evenings, bad bis boys sort over every kernel of com he pnt in the ground, choosing only the most perfect from the middle of the ear, and al najs to his own adtantage, as his crops proted. As many seeds, like omous, parsnips, carrots, salsify, etc., will not always germinate when two years old, label the boxes or bags containing your seed with the name and year of growth. Place them in a dry cool place, where neither rats nor mice will break through and steal them. STltAWBKKliiES. As early this month as pos sible complete the transplanting of plants. It is useless to waste time with new and nntried vari eties, but select only smh as iu yonr locality intariably do well. Keep the weeds out, and give the plants the best care you can. Before the ground freezes put ou a good mnlch of bay, straw; or cornstalks, and tie down so the wiud will uot blow them away. For this purpe take strips of shingles two inches wide and bore holes through tho thick end, drive them down into the ground about two feet apart on each side of the led, and pass a stout twine through from one to the other, across the bed. This keeps the mnlch in place aud prevents the hens from scratching jt an ay. GhApex. In gathering the now ripening and luscious fruit of your tines use a sharp knife or scissors. The tearing the stems away from the vines is apt to injure the bark both at the point and also where the tendrils cling to the trellises. After the leaves have fallen trim the tines, sav ing such cutting as yon need by throw jugs some earth ort themiii a lry piece Ir the tiiic on the ground and cover them. Karth is better than anything else, as it affords the best pro tection against mice which gnaw the bark. Beans. Pick yonr Limas before frost, dry them, aud place them iu a cool place. .String beaua may be picked at any time and placed iu jars with salt lor winter cooking. They are not ery good, bowe er, iu any w ay. CABnAGES. May be bnned for winter or spring use or placed in a cellar. If buried place them iu rows, heads up, and cover with earth six or eight inches deep. If placed iu the cellar, stand themou the roots as compactly together as pos sible, in the darkest, coldest corner yon have. ClXUJiBFns. For pickles should be picked daily, and placed in a cask with alternate Liters of salt. Don't make a brine; there is water enough iu the cucumber to more than dissolve the salt, and by adding water yon dilute thu exuded juice of the fruit and weaken its tlator in the pickle. Melons. Muskmrlons are ripe when the stem begins to cleave from the fruit. The w atermelnn is generally eatable when the little curl nt the juuetion of the stem aud vine is withered and dry- Place both fruit on Ice before eating. Omons. Onions are ready for harvest as soon as the tops bote fallen down. String them on strings and hang them in the cellar. SqUAsriEd Squashes require more care. Do uot disturb them until there are strong indica tions of frost. They are sweetest when allowed the sun as much and as long as possible. They do not keep well unless they arc kept alxive the earth. Place some boards on the Cellar floor raised two or three inches above the ground aud put the squashes npou them. If au old carpet is thrown over them they will keep all the bet ter. PAitsxirs. Parsnips reqnire more care. They require to be covered so that the moisture con tained in them will not evaporate and leave them dry and sbrivled If they are placed in the corner of the celler and covered with earth they will keep well, or they may be packed iu barrels and the interstices filled with sand or earth. ToilATOKS. Fight the. -worm. Cut away sn pertiuous vices, that most of the nutriment ab sorbed by the roots may go to the fruit. Cover them when the early frosts come. Stone the chicken, which is as bad as the orm. On gen eral princples-stone every chicken seen in the garden, especially your neighbors. Black and Raspberries. Pinch off the ends of the canes to keep tbem within bounds, and if you nave not removed me out canes no it now, and keep the hoe busy in keeping down the shoots that grow between the rows. m i i Hsw ! Crib Cora. A correspondent of Col. Oilman's paper writes: "When the corn from the wagon or cart is being put into the crib, it should lie assorted and not thrown in with a scoop or shovel. Throw the small, unripe, imieifect ears by themselves, and feed them out first. If all the com that has gone into the crib is sound and dry, large quantities may be piled up in the crib; but if these imper fect ears are not reniov ed. much of it will become heated and destroyed. If the crib is made qmte large, it is well to set op boards in the centre in the form of a chimney; this will a' low any mois ture that may lie there or that has accumulated after it was cribbed, to eape. Do not lcav e the top of the crib uncovered, as many of our western farmers do ; the rain and snow will do great dauiage to the com. Let jour cribs be raised at hast two and a half feet tmra the ground, and over the tops of the posts that sup port the crib, let inverted pans lie placed, so that the rats and mice cannot climb up to feed on and damage the grain." Hints for TltE Seasov. Calves and colts, unless they are too j onng, shnnld now be entirely separated from their dams. If grass is too short, they should be fed on green cornstalk cnt very fine, or fine bay, wetted up with a little meal daily, and should have a constant supply of fresh water. Working oxen, and fattening bullocks design ed for beef shonld now be fed well. Oxen will grow fat and work hard, too, if they are used gently, fed and watered regularly, and curried often. When implements are not iu nse, keep the bright surfaces well oiled and housed. An English writer recommends that potatoes not only be stored in a dry place, but wherever practicable they be exposed from time to time to the fumes of burning sulphur. This he declares will retard the progress of disease and prevent further infection without iu any manner injur ing the tubers for food. A okktlemax of aesthetic taste and sonnd judgment in all such matters, declares that leav ing profit out of the question, none of the so called ornamental trees are equal in ornamental effect to fruit tree-, combining, as they do, beauty of their flowers in spring and their fruit in autumn.

The Gazette Hen Beaux Art for August contains a viry intesestiug letter from M.Palianl, in which he rives an account of his discovery of the luntr lost tapestry, wot en from Raphael's cartoon of the Coronation ot tue virgin, it was used lor the decoration of the high altar of the Sistine Chapel, while the other teu tapestries were sus pended along the loner part of its side walls. After 1'aphael had finished his immortal cartoons (1515-16) they were sent to Flanders. The tapes tries woven from them arrived in Koine in 151!), two) cars before bis death. Nine yearn later, when (lo'JU) Komo was tucked by the furious soldiers of Constable de Bourbon, they were stolen and carried to France, where, after being ottered for sale at Lyons in 1530, they cru purchased by the Constable Anno de Montmoreiicy, who, in 15o., generously restored them to Pope Julius HI. They remained at Komo until 17e9, vv hen they were agaiu abstracted fioui papal keeping, and sold to certain Jews, who, supposing that the gold thread which enteral into their composition was of considerable value, dntroyed the one rep resenting Christ's descent to Limbo. Finding that tbeamoiiiit of the precious metal which they obtained from it was of but little value, they sold the other tapestries to sumo Gcuevese mer chants, who in their turn disposed of them to Pope Pins VIL, by who they were mice more restored to the Vatican in the year IcKM. Since that time nine have hung in the gallery of Pius V., but no one knew what hail become of the tenth. Passavaut, iu his life of I'aphael (vol. ii. Sll) had suggested that it would perhaps be found ndled up und forgotten iu si mo corner of the papal palace, an idea which has happily been verified by M. Paliard. After searching without success in the workshop in the Vatican, where the tapistries n-.ed in theSistiue Chapil are kept and repaired, and fruitlessly tilting the pontiti cial factory at S. Mithele, where many old tapes tries are preserved, this gentleman was about to give up in despair, when a fortunate conversa tion with one of the smarter workmen reanimat ed his hopes. At this man's snggestiun he return ed to the Vatican, and there, in a room ou the second story, belonging to the private apartments of I lie I'ope, called "Stanza della predica Del famigliari," discovered the lost treasure hanging on the wall, together with seven other tapestries, one of vv Licit, as representing Leonardo de Vinci's Last Supjier, is of peculiar interest. AsM. Paliaid made his discovery on the 27th of February, lcCJ, we nro at a loss to know why be has kept the secret for four years. The Coro nation of the Virgin, which exactly corresponds to the description taken by Passavaut for the papal catalogue, is infranied in a border of flow ers, fruits, birds, sirens, and genii of small dimen sions. Thu subject is dividid into three super posed rows of ligures, God the Father, with the cherubim at the top, Christ, the Holy Spirit, in the form of a dove, and the Madonna attended by angels, in the middle, and Saints John the Bap tist and Jerome, with two angels, at the bottom. These two saints were here introduced iu honor of Leo X.; St. John, because l.is real name was Giovani de Medici, and St. Jerome, with his faith ful lion, because he took the name of Leo X. on his election. M. Paliard mentions a drawing of this composition at the Ambrosiau library, aud another at Oxford, both by Itaphael. In the latter SS. Peter and Panl occupy the places afterward given to SS. John aud Jerome, One peculiarity of the newly found tapestry is, that unlike the other tapestries, iu which the draw ings are reversed, this is woveu in the same sense as the cartoon. The reason is clear, forotherw ise God, the Father, would have been represented as giving the beiiediclinn with his left hand, and holding the globe of the world iu his right; the Virgin would have been seated to the left of onr Lord, who wonld have crowned her with his left hand, and St. John, besides giving up the place of honor to St. Jerome, would havo pointed to the Divine Lamb with his left hand. Jvow.tbat the tapestry has been found, one can not help hoping that the far more valuable dis covery of the cartoon from which it was woven w ill some day be made. Of this, howev er, there is bnt little hope, not only on account of its com parative frugality, but also because in this case it will have escaped greater penis than those which only seven out of the eleven have surviv ed. "Their snrvival under the barbarous treat ment they have received is," says the Academy, "as remarkable as that of some of the weak, de fenseless species of animals ill the Darwinian ac count of the atniEcle for existence."

Bottom Adeertiter. SuitSTrrcTE rou Cash. Beady money is not very plentiful among thesettlersofTexasandXew Mexico, and many are the shifts aud "dickers' resorted to for the procurement of desired arti cles. For instance, au old bedstead, "witb'no clond uimn the title," was advertised for sale in a recent issue of the Elpaso (Texas) Sentinel, and the editor soon after received a letter from a man in Iis Cuscio, Xcw Mexico, stating that he wanted the bedstead, but having no cash to in vest he offered as an equivalent three pairs of cavalry pants, partly worn; one sheep-skin fur a saddle-cloth; one bridle which cost $5 and is put in at $3; and one sack coat which has been worn only thirty-nine times. The writer thinks this a fair compensation for a second-hand bedstead, in which opinion he is nndonbtedly correct. "Kkd Hot." Colonel Nelson, of the pay de partment, U.S. Army, informs q that while at Fort Mohave, a short time ago, he observed the thermometer raise itself to 119. This in the coolest place in the post. In such a climate, clothing of any kind wonld be tnperfluons, so that dress is a small matter.

Considerable has been lately said in medical journals concerning the value of milk as a reme dial agent iu certain diseases An interesting article. npon this subject lately appeared ill the London Jfilt Journal, in which it is stated on the authority of Dr. Benjarn'm Clarke that iu the East Indies warm milk is used to a great extent a a specific for diarrhea. A pint every four hours will check the most violent diarrhea, stom ach ache, incipient cholera aud dysentery. The milk shonld never be boiled, but only heated snBicieutly to bo agreeably warm, not too hot to drink. Milk which has bsen boiled is nnfit for use. This writer gives several instances to show the value in this simple substance iu arresting these diseases, among which is the following. The wriUr says: "It has never failed in enring in six to twelve hours, and I have tried it, I should think, fifty times. I have also given it to ad ing man who had been subject to dysentery eight months, lat terly accompanied by one continual diarrhea; aud it acted like a charm. In two days bis diar rhea was gone, in three weeks he became a bale, fat man, aud now nothing that may hereafter occur will ever shake his faith in but milk. A writer also communicates to the Medical Timet and Gazette a statement of the value of milk tn twenty-six eases of typhoid fever, in every one of w hich its great value was apparent. It checks diarrhea, and nourishes and cools the IhhI.v. People suffering from disease require food quite as much as those in health, and ninch more so in certain diseases where there is a rapid waste of the system. Frequently all ordinary food iu certain diseases is rejected by the stomach, aud even loathed by I he patient; but nature, ever beneficent, has furnished a food that in all dis eases is beneficial- in some directly curative. Such a food is milk. The writer in the journal first quoted, Dr. Alexander Yale, after giving particular observations upon the points above mentioned, viz., its action ill checking diarrhea, its nourishing properties, and1 its action in cool ing the liody, says: "We believe that milk nour ishes in fever, promotes sleep, wards off delirium, soothes the intestines, and in fine, is the tine qua son iu typhoid fever." We have also lately tested the value of milk iu scarlet fever, and learn that it Is now reioinineuded by the medi cal faculty iu all cases ot this often distressing children's disease. Give all the milk the patient will take, even during the period of greatest fever; it keeps np the strength of the patient, acts well upon the stomach, and is every way a blessed thing iu sickness. Parents, remember it, and do not fear to eivo it to your dear ones that are afflicted. Dyspepsia. Those afflicted must practice great self-denial iu rating, both in regard to what they fancy and the quantity they eat As a general rule certain meats are more easily digested than vegetables, unless the latter are perfectly cooked. Mutton and boiled rice arc Iwth capital articles for dys peptics, but the first should be very nicely roast ed, and the latter boiled till very soft. Avoid gravies and past r v. Use butter spariugly. Xever touch a pickle. Hare roast beef, if tender and juicy, is among meats the ucxi best thing to mutton if vvp except veniso'i. Itoiltd milk and rice, or baked applet, are relished by most dys peptics. Drugs will never cure dyspepsia. The uiore medicine yon take the worse ofl you will be. One thing you must avoid, and that is over eating. Endeavor to rise from the table uot quite satisfied, aud in a quarter of au hour or so von will thank vourself for not eating more. Masticate your food well; take your time at every meal; and, above all, have company, if it lie possible, at yonr table. Cheerful conversa tion is a capital assistant to good digestion. It is, of course, utterly impossible to lay down ruirs for all "M-rsoiis to follow with corresponding re sults. Some food which agrees with one dys !Hptic will disagree with another; but by close y watching what ne i at, and its edicts, we can soon ascertain what is good for us aud what is not. Take all the out-dour exercise you can; if compelled to remain indoors, use dumb-bells. It.ithe in tepid water when yon immerse the en tire person; ordinarily, nse cold water. TJeitd ajhel far Insects. Strong alum water is n sure death to bugs of any description. Take two pounds of pulverized or of any crystal alum, and dissolve in three quarts of lioilitig water, allowing it to remain over the fire until thoroughly dissolved. Apply, while hot, with a brush, or. what is bitter, use a syringe to force the liquid into the cracks of the walls or bedstead. The pulverized alum is worth about thirty cents a pound, and that in crystal form fiftieii to twenty a cheap remedy. The latter requires a little longer time to dis solve. Of course au experiment to verify the claim alsive made, can be made by vmploying a mere fraction of tho quantities above named. A less perfect cure for insect pests is to scatter the powdered alum freely in places where they abide. Powdered borax, scattered thinly where croton bugs and cockroaches travel or abide, will expel them ut once. It is a sure expulsion fur the cro ton insect. Almost all strong saline solutions are efficacious in the destruction of these house hold pests, which are both destructive and an noying, and the mixture of alum or any other material need not necessarily be hot. Remedy ron'PAisrcL Wounds. Take a pan or shovel with burning coals and sprinkle upon them common brown sugar, and hold the wound ed part in the smoke. In a few minutes the pain will be allayed, and recovery proceeds rap idly. In my own case a rusty nail had made a bad place in tho bottom of my fuot. The pain and nervous irritation was very severe. This was all removed by holding it iu tho smoke for fifteen minutes, and I was able to resume my reading in comfort. We have often recommend ed it to others with like results. Last week one of my men had a fingernail torn out by a pair of ice tongs. It became very painful, as was to have been expected. Held in sugar smoke for tweuty minutes, the pain ceased, and it promises speedy recovery. Cor. Country Gentleman. DAXarit from Wkt Clothes. Few persons understand fully tho reason why wet clothes ex ert such a chilling influence. It is simply this: Water, when it evaporates, carries off an eu ortnous amount of heat, in what is called the latent form. One pound of water in vapor con tains as much heat as nine or ten pounds of liquid water, and all this heat mnst, of course, be taken from the body. If our clothes are mois tened with three pounds of water that is, if, by wetting, they are rendered three pounds heavier, these three pounds will, iu drying, carry off as much heat as would raie three gallons of ice cold water to the boiling point. No vvonder that damp clothes chill us. Handicraft. Remedy for Headache. Pains in the bead arise from such a variety of causes that no one remedy will answer iu every case. Hut the fol lowing is anid to be an excellent preparation, and from the simple nature of the ingredients we think it is worth trying: Put a handful of salt into a quart of water, aud one ounce of spir its of hartshorn and half an ounce spirits of cam phor. Pnt them quickly into a Imttle, aud cork tightly to prevent the escape of the spirits. Soak a piece of cloth with the mixture, and apply it tn the head; wet tho cloth afresh as soon as it gets heated. A "are for catarrh" is recommended by a draggist, who pronounces it an absolute remedy. It is as follows: To an ounce of glycerine add fifteen or twenty drops of carlralic acid, and thoroughly apply with a small sponge, to be fomid at all drug stores, known as the ear sponge. The stimnlating and antiseptic properties of the carbolic acid, combined with the soothing quali ties of the glycerine, produce the most happy resnlts. Tins remedy also affords almost imme diate relief to an ordinary cold. Lemons. Lemons sprinkled with loaf sngar almost completely allay feverish thirst. They are invalnable in the sick mom. Invalids affect ed with feverishness can safely consume two or three lemons a day. A lemon or two thus taken at tealime is reeommeuded as an entire substi tute for the ordinary supper of summer, and will often induce a comfortable sleep throngh the night, and give a good appetite for breakfast. HCSC Mats. A correspondent of the Jgrienl turitt says: Take an inch plank of the size desired, and bore three-quarter inch holes throngh it, with their centres two inches apart. Draw into these damjiened com husks, and trim off abont two inches on each side. This mat can be used either side up. It U easily made, and every oue can keep his boots clean, much to the gratification of the housekeeper. To Keet Cushions pkoji being Mont Eatex. The American Artuamgive the following sim ple protection against moths in cushions. It says: "A very simple protection against moths consists in placing in the cushion a stalk of freshly blown hemp, with its leaves and flowers. The hemp is to be cnt in the early part of July, aud dried quickly in the shade. Its protective power is said to last for years. Canned Frltts. Make syrup with sugar and water, averaging a quarter of a pound to each pint of juice; boiling the fruit until done, fill the jars boiling hot, seal up immediately. Keep yonr jars warm before filling them with the fruit. 2 V ' MMQJ -Seo 3 CO r S r S3 5 5 y 2m PS hSzSo m F sHeoPgs r ggOD 9.'-. Qi BEDEBICf S CELEBEATED HAY PRESSES.
