Tbe professor w as puzzled ; the face of his cordi al friend was quite familiar, and be was evident ly no stranger to himself or family, but to recall his name was beyoud any effort of memory. The professor joined in a lively conversation, dislik ing to make the awkward inquiry, and hoping for Boair chance word to reveal tbe name of his friend, but it came not, and as tbe conversation went on tbe ignorance became more and more embarrassing. At last a buppy thongbt came to the professor; he would get it witbont asking.' So, with an indifferent air, fas asked: "Let me see, I forget how to spell your name. But, alas for the expedient!

Yon deserve immortal honor for your zeal and perse'verance in the cause of preventing cattle from running or pasturing on the highwiys, and it is a matter of surprise to me that the farmers of the State do not unite in solid mass to obtain striugeut-laws on tbis snhlwt. and see that they are duly put in force. Tbe proposal of one of your correspondents to have a favored class of rr men pnniegrd to pasture cows on the pnb roads, is not only absnrd, bar wicked. No man is able to buy a cow unless he is able to feed her; it is part of the expense. We might aa well ask for a law that when a poor roan bought a piece of beef iu market he should have the priv ilege of going to his rich neighbor's kitchen rauge and cooking it, bet-anse there was always a fire there, and be could not afford to buy fnel for tbe purpose. Ifa proposition was made to have a privileged class of rich men, there would be a terrible outcry made abont it. If poor men's cows tnrned upon the scanty pickings'uf a road were sore to get a liviug, they would soon find way to tbe other side 'of tbe fence, where tbure was an inviting field of clover or corn. Weak places in s fence are soon tonnd by cows, or their owners; arail may ua-alipped iu a post and rail fence, or a rider tbrowrr'off in a "worn fence." I once Hied adjoining, a man who. rented a mill and thirty acres of land, and yet he kept more stock than any large farmer in the vicinity. When I wanted a yoke of oxen fur some extra work, I had ouly to hire.oue of my darkies, by an extra dram, to bring, np his oxen before day from oce of my fields I bad uo need to Imiitow, excopt his ox-chain. Before railroads were Invented .scarcely a week passed without onr tearing of, a.'Mteadfiil accident," by tbe overturning of a stago coach, from running on a cow lying iu tbe middle of tbe road on a'dark night; for.niuch of our traveling was done at night, and cows' generally chose tbn middle of the, road to lie down,,wbereas bogs, moro intelligent, taSe to fence comeFiti-rOn tbe railroad from Camden toJSurllngton, Ji.

No man can foret.ee the danger to property and loss of life that may be caused by permittingbis cat tle to run iiHn n railroad, aud it has been declar ed by onr Supreme Court to be a trespass for which owners are liable; aud it would be well where lives are lost to have these nienTlndictcd as accessories to the murder. Cor. Gtnuantovn Ttlegrapk. Care f Animate lit Aenmker. One of tbe most dreary aspects of life in the country is tbat of animals roaming over barren pastures and exhausted fields' m the' month of November. They are tnracd out from tbn shel ter of the barnvard. after a stinted breakfast of dry nnsKs, to wander turongu the gnnty day where there is notbint: to eat, and when the sharp north wind is blowingaway tLe very beat and moisture which animate their empty bodies! Uuder snch treatment their hair. soon looks Ion" and frowsy, their ears flop abont as thoiich hnnr on a single pinion, their eyes lose lustre, and the countenance is dejected, wbile-they eland in the blast'with nil their feet so close- together as al most to tonch each other. This" is tbe poorest possible beginning for a stock"of cattle as cold weather uiiifoaclie, and it will cost the fanner twice as much money to restore the fat and flesh which they lose under this treatment as it would cost to add au equal amount if the cattle were properly cared for. Between the time of a plentiful supply of grass and that of feeding upon dry fodder is a trying period for stock one in which tbey'rcqnire nnu snal care rather! ban neglect. They are depriv ed of their acenstomed supply or green and suc culent food at time when tbe cold weather is making-nniisual demands upon the' animal heat of the svstemirand rfur this reason alnnn thfv should bned with good hay. a little corn, pump kins, aud other-heat and fat making food. If to these, are added the leaves of cabbage, mangold, beets, carrots, or turnips, a smallfoddering at a time, two or three times in the dav. thev will lay on fat and flesh rapidly, and enter upon their winter course in excellent condition to grow or yield milk in abundance. On tbu other hand, cattle that go to their winter quarters iu a thin and shnbby manner cannot lie brought np to a sleek and healthy coiiditiou short of extraordi nary ettort aim cost, ir lTor enongli to neg lect caltld in the month of November. .V. E. Farmer. Top Dressing JKeadowa in A'orentber. There will be many days during tbis mouth when hands cannot conveniently work at any thing, on account of snow aud fro!. On such days manure may be collected with brnad hoes into heaps, ami hauled on) on meadows, and spread evenly over tho entire surface nf the grnnndi If it is a fire, well rolled manure, or couipott, tbe better nay is to spruad it as it is hauled out, instead ol putting it in heaps. It will require only a few minutes longer to spread aloud from the wagon or cart with a shoved thau to unload it in biaps; and if it is spread as fast as it is drawn out, the job ill he completed iu a more farmrr?Iike maimer than it usually is when the iimnnru is left in heaps, becanso when it it spra-id "from" the cartlt will usually 1 e dis tributed jnncb more evniy than when left in heaps. Unless agnail is very careful, he will not leave enough in a heap, or he will leave too much: A tb'm coat of well rotted manure spread over a meadow Ju Xoveaile-r will be tho means of pn ducing a heavy crop of grass the next season. Bnt it is not tho best policy, by any means, to allow manure to remain in heaps during the win ter, and spread it in the spring. It would be better to pay a hand a double price per day in order to have it spread before winter conies than to allow it to remain in heaps on meadow land until next spring. Surface manuring iu late nu turn u on meadows, pastures and lawns, will start the grass early next spring, and produce a bountiful crop during the season, provided the soil is not too wet, Cor. Cotinlry Gentleman. I'prlgbt Trees. Wbeu crooked, lopniided, leaning trees are seen In a wild forest, w e call them picturesque, and let it go. But when we see them in a neigh. Dor's orchard, (or our own,) or by tbe roadside, or in a laun, we say somebody is to blame, for generally it comes from sheer neglect. As to leaning trees the history is something like this: When first transplanted from the iinrsery or tbo woeds, Uiey arc straight and talL They me set out in-exposetl places, and not being staked aud tied np, they soon get ont of tho perpendicular. This is not to be wondered at, considering the smalliicss of the roots, and the softness of tho soil. It is a very easy matter to prevent this. Let every newly planted tree be staked and tied np, using broad and soft bands to prevent chaf ing tbe bark. Or, in the lack of stakes and bands, nse heaps of stones laid over the roots on tbe windy side, which will ballast them. In case a tree gets thrown over, it can be righted up by loosening tbu earth about the roots, and drawing it up, and fasteuing it to a stunt stake. If it has stood leaning for several years it may be neces sary to nse an ax ou one or two olistiuate roots. Bnt by all means get every tree np straight, and then keep it'np. JgriculttrUL Ciubbucg CORX. Many a sore-fingered hnsker has wished that his load of corn could be shovel ed direct from the wagon into the crib, without having to throw ont a portion by band until the sbovelconld reach the bottom of the wagon. In such cases every finjrer is like a false horse flinch ing from the" collar, and the work is only done from a conviction that there is uo help for it. In loadiugcorn take ont a piece of pine board six feet long and a little wider than yonr shovel; place an end on the tail-board clone to one corner of the wagon, and tbe other end ou the bottom, and fill np as nsnal. In unloading, sbortl down the board to tho bottom of the wagon, uud not an ear need be touched by the hands. Hints for tut. Season-. Provide nonltrv with warm, ventilated aud comfortable winter quar ters. Keep their premises clean. Occasionally pass their roosting poles through fire to destroy vermin. Supply them with animal food as well ks grain, and with plenty of clear water, gravel, and ashea to wallow in. Harvest your potatoes and store immediately in a dark, coil and well ventilated cellar. A liberal amount -f earth collected with them is rather beneficial than otherwise in their preser vation. Witar.n. Grain. It is expausiou of the water in the soil, by being frozen, that breaks and tvjtia iue nMiisiu piauis. Keep the soil as nry as possible, dnring tbn winter, by clearing drains, opeuing i he dead furrows anew, and seeing that the outlets are free, finu a oue bor plow through tbe dead furrows when mifrozeii, espe cially in nmiat laud. A little graiu will be des troyed, but tbis seldom comes to mnch in tbe dead furrows, while the better draining of tbe n-st f the laud will largely increase the product and quality.

The following is taken from "A Lcctire on the Gods," delivered by Hon. Bobert J. Inger soll, of Illinois. It was, in plain terms. an "Inti del" lecture, and b place the God of HeAvealon tbe same footing with the long array of other (Jisln whom be calls up and brings forth in i eview. But without necessarily endorsing his senti ments, it must be acknowledged that this is one of the most sublime and beautiful passages to be" found in tt e English language: "In that vast cemetery, called the past, are most of the religious of men, and there, too, are nearly all their gods. The sacred teuiplei of In dia were ruins loug ago. Over column and eor nice; over the painted and pictured walls, cling anil creep ino trailing viues. cranma. the gold en, with Tour heads, and fonr arms; Yisbuii, tho sombre, the puniiber of the wicked, with his three eyes, his crescent, aud his necklaco of skulls; Siva, the destroyer, red with seas of blood; Kali, tbe goddess, Dranpadi, the n bite armed, and Chrisbiia, the Christ, all passed away and left the thruue of heaven desolate. Along the banks of the sacred Nile, Isis no longer wan dering wecjis scircliing for the dead Osiris. The slmilow of Tvphon's scowl falls no more iijmhi tOn waves. The snu rise-t as of yore, and his golden beams still smite the lips'of Memuou, bnt Memnon is as voiceleas as the Sphinx. The sa cred fanes are lost in desert sands; the dnsty mummies are still waiting for the resurrection premised by their priests, aud the old lsdicfs, wrought in curiously sculptured stone, fhwp in the mystery of a language lost and dead. Odin, the author of life ami son), Vili ami Ve, and the mighty giant Yiuir, strode long ago from tbe ley halls of tho North; and Thor, with iron glove and glittering hammer, dashes mountains to the earth no more. Broken aro tho circb-J and cromlechs of the'vancietit Dru'kU; fallen upon the summits of the bills, and covered with the centuries' moss, are tbe srered cairns. The di iue tires of Persia aud of tbo Aztecs, have died out iu the ashes of thu past, a lid there is none to rekindle, and none to feed tiui holy flames. Thu harp of Orpheus is still; tie drained cup of Bac chus has been thrown aside ; Venus lies dead in stone, and her white bosom Leaves no moro with love. The streams still murmur, bnt no naiads bathe; the treat AtjU ware, bnt iu tbe forest aisles no dryads dance. Tbe gods have flown from high Olympus. Not eveu the beautiful women can lure them back, and even Dana: lies unnoticed, naked to the stars. Hushed forever are IheMbnuders of Sinai ; lost are tbe voices of tbr prophets, and tbe laud once flowing with milk and honey, is but a desert waste. One by one, the myths have failed from the clonds; one by mie, the phantom host has disappeared, and one by one, facts, truths and realities have taken their places. The supernatural has almost gone, but' tho natural remains. The gods have fled, but man is here." a iei m Duuino the terrible epidemic of 1667, which decimated tbe coast towns and cast a gloom over the entire alluvial region of Texas, a remarkable fact is vouched for by observant gentlemen, who wcut.throngli tbe epidemic and suffered by it. It is, that as soon as the yellow fever became ep idemic nt a place, all tbe birds fled. In Lagrange, on a river, and wbcro the feathered tribe are or dinarily numerous, not a bird was to be seen du ring tbe whole course of the plague. At Chapel Hill uue was not sccu near tbe village till the ftvvr bad ended. It mast be that tho feathered songsters also felt or perceived the poison of the pestilenco iu the atmosphere, and urged by in stinct, fled from its baleful influence. Now, DOWN in Pennsylvania, rival editors barrow npeach other's feelings with snch epi thets, not to be borne, as these : One calls an other an Emprosthidnnlc editor, and is crashed u.v tne wimenng Might buried at mm in return f Opistbniiic andObatnpefactive pencil wrrnch er. These gentlemen do not seem to understand that the moat ordinary" etiquette enlagitatea more buuorificabilititudinity. Tbis is a simple maxim, bnt a true one. Ik Prof. Proctor is right, says tbe Boston Trosacrint, whieh declares tbat it is nnable to eparo a reporter to visit the spot to verify or re fute him, "every foot of the sun's snrface is hot ter than blazes. Tbe heat thrown ont from each sqnare yard of surface per honr is like that evolved from tbn bnrning of six tons of coal; bnt whether soft coal or anthracite is iu nse there we are not informed." The fine practical seuse of the Second Advent folks who are gathering on the banks of the Con necticut to witness the end of the world within the next few days, is proved by tbe fact one del egation took with it seventy live fat tntkevs. Probably the Adrentists wanted those useful mrus to gobble the world np. Tun newspapers, having discussed ibe author ship of tho well-known ballad, "Betsy aud I are Out in tbe Beautiful Snow." to their satisfaction, are wrangling over that of "OldGrimca."

One of-our leading poultry dealers requests ns to publish the following for the benefit of those who prepare fowls for market: Choice poultry in good, order-always finds a ready sale at the highest price, but to obtain this, attention must be given to the following points. In fattening poultry, give them all they will cat, and poultry fattened on corn is more yellow and better than tbat fattened on any oth er grain; remember yon not only get pay for every pound your poultry gains in fattening, bnt by improving the quality you gain from ouo fonrtb to one-half in price on tbe whole. Tbe birds should be kept from food twenty-four hours before killing to allow tbe crop to become empty. All poultry, bnt more especially turkeys, should be killed by bleeding iu the neck, aud tbe poul try picked while the body is warm. Wet-rucked poultry willnot sell so readily nor for so high a price as tbat which is dry-picked, and the beat growers of ponltry never scald their birds. As soon as ponltry is picked the neck shonld be carefully wiped, tbe tail and wing feathers shonld be clipped, and the entrails removed. Poulty should be thoroughly cooled and perfectly dry, and packing boxes should be used, especially for turkeys and geese, although barrels may be used for chickens and ducks. Pack closely aa possi ble, lining tbe package with clean paper, and see that the package is so full that wbeu the cover is nailed on there will be no chance of the ponl try being moved abont. Never nse straw in packing ponltry, fur besides creasing the bodies, there is nlways more or less chaff tbat hurts tbe appearance of the fowls. Poultry prepared and shipped according to the aboe directions will nlways meet with a ready sale, wbeu balf-fatteu-t-d, badly dressed, slovtfy looking stuff cannot bo sold at half price. ftatt.Bielaa; Bread. A correspondent of tbo EUnuMd gives the fol lowing recipe for making salt-rising bread, which is superior to common yeast bread, and is con sidered by some as more wholesome: Put three teacups of water, as warm as you can bcar'your finger in, in a two qnart cup or bor.1, and three fourths f a tablespooiifnt uf salt; stir iu flour enough to make qnile a stiff batter; this is lor tbe rising, or emptying, as some call it. Set tbo bowl, closely covered, in a kettle, in warm water, as warm as yon can bear yonr fin ger in. and keep it as near this temperature as IHissilde. Notice the timo when you " set " y our nsiii!: in three honre stir lu two taulesnnaiiluls uf flour, put it back, and in five and one-half hours from the time of setting, it will be within one inch uf the top of your bowl. It is then light enough, and wilfmake up right quarts of flour; make a sponge in the centre uf your flonr with one quart of water of the same temperature as rising, stir the rising into it, cover over with a little dry flour, aud put it' where it will keep very warm, but not scald; .ill three-fourths of nu hour mix this into stiff dough; if water is used, be sure it is very warm, aud do not work as much At yeast bread; make the loaves a little larger, aud keep it warm for another three-quarters of an hour; it will then be ready to bake. While rising this last time have yonr oven heating; it needs a hotter oven than yenst bread. If these rules are followed, you will have bread as white ns snow, with a light-browu crust, delicious!) sweet and tender.

If purchased In any larger quantity, exositre to beat causes honey to ferment, aud become thin, wlule tun first severe com weather hardens it into a solid white mass, uninviting iu appearance and rough to the palate. Pont all your honey together into a clean colander; sup port the ears of the colander by two rods resting on the rim uf the bowl. Cut the comb trans versely and repeatedly; then leave it to drain. This will be accomplished perfectly iu a day or 'two, tbe honey rnnning through a clear liquid, leaving lllo wax brbiiid clean and dry. Dottle tbo strained honey, cork tight, and it wilt be ready fur use nt any time. To make assurance doubly sure, some housekeepers let theirstuined honey boil before bottling, and eiy tbaf'tlins prepared it may be kept for an indelinite length of time.

This is a turlicularty good time to iuaL.ni linings from pithy, succulent, soft-wood-til shrubs, including currants geberries. etc. With a sharp knife, aud u clean, sloping vcut, make cuttings eight or ten inches in length from sound, well-ripened shoots of this year's grow tli.

Granulation, ra'lnnxiiig and slight rooting will ensue this fall, and in the spring, rank and luxnriaut growth will follow. All kinds of cuttings from hardy shrubs, vines and trees, are better made in the tall than spring; bnt as a rule, it is best to wait until the falling of tbe leaf indicates the full tn.t turity of the wood aud bud.

He claims that the advantage of this mode of treatment consists, especially, iu tbu fact tbat it does not suppress perspiration like tbn hot water bath, but rather increases it; and another advantage; it possesses is, that it docs not interfere with thn respiration of the patient, us do the steam or Turkish baths. It is asserted that the body ran endure tbe iiitliirnro of sncli a bath for a much longer time, and a much higher temperature can also bo applied. It can be used for infants, nud permits of easy application to a part or to tho whole body. If this remedy shall prove efficacious for so scrions an ailment, it will indeed be a boon to a large tlass of sufferers. "BrrrF.iu." "Some important experiments as to the effects of tbe beverages popularly known as "bitters," have recently been descrilied by Dr. Hecnjsnc, of Paris. He finds that, while thu composition of these beverages is tint uniform, they generally contain either vermouth or ab sinthe, in combination with the inferior qnnlitif; of alcohol. Concerning the effect of the ctteutial oil of absinthe ou organism, he finds that, nnau tj for quautity, a low drops of it drn:,l i,t'0 a vcsstl of water coutaiuin- ",eS destroy life sooner than prnssic acid. He mid, ices the evi deuce of various and careful experiments, to show that vermouth and absinthe produce epi lepsy in animals, and believes that epileptic fits in many cases supervene from excessive driukin of hitters. Thk best time for painting tho exterior of buildings is late in tbe nutnmn or during the winter. Paint then applied will endure tnicn as long as when applied in early summer, or in hot w earner, iu me ionnent (inns slowly anil be comes hard, like a'glaxol snrfure, not rnsilv afiected afterward by the weather, or worn off by the heating of the storms. But iu very hot weather the oil in the pant soaks into the wood at once, as into a sponge, leaving tbe lead nearly dry, and nearly ready to crumble, off. The Iat diffirnlty, however, might bn guarded against, tbongh at an increased expense, by first going over the snrface with raw oil. By painting in cold weather, one ammyauce might crrtaiulv be weaned, namely, the collection of small flies on the fresh paint. MJWsrArF.ns in many parts of the western country, warn persons ramUing almnt tho fields and woods against meddling with the plant known as lwiivui vine (ri faxirodVsifroa). It is a brantifnf, bright colored treeier, often to be seen clinging to old fences, walls, or trees. Cou tact with it results in very disagreeable conse qnenrrs to most persons, though there are some who can handle it with iiipnnity. It attacks huso wu eiiuer imm it witu symptoms much resembling- those of erysipelas. Cattle alo not seem tu be injured by tbo dsou vine, as cows are often to be seen eating it with impnnity. It is stated, however, that "milk sicklies" in chil dren is canned by naing the milk of cow tbat feed npou it. To Mesd Bcbbkb SiioM.Grt a piece of pure rubber an old shoe -vnlesnirl nibher will not do; cut it into small bits, rut it into a Wile, and cover to twice its depth with spirits of tur pentine or refined coal tar naplba not potm- iciuu inijiiui. oiop ine iiottle ana set to one side, shaking it freqnentlr.

Continue to apply as it dries, until a thorough coating is formed. Spirits of turpentine dissolves the rub ber slowest, but forms the mast elastie cement. The discovery is said to have been made that it is not necessary to groove a rifle barrel the whole of its length, bnt that a few inches of grooving nrar the mnzzle will give the ballet all the needful amount of spin.
