expedition, he fell twice ont of one tree, to the
imminent danger of breaking his neck, was lick

materially lessened by stumbling against his
stomach, ran a sliver into his knee, and was bit
ten violently on tho neck by a new kind of bog.

"What are j on doing with this wood'"' asked
the dealer. "Every log is worth ten dollars,
since tbe Great Elm tumbled down," was tbe
significant reply.

Bad "Management in Cultivating1 Oats.
The sjhtem of management which is adopted
er exteiiMrly in many part of the United
Mate, "decidedly had, "not only for the im
mediate pecuuiary interest of farmers, but fr
the pmductitewfl of their farms, and for the
country. It is bad for farmers lecanse they
receuo only a light crop, when their soil i
capable if yielding, in many instance, twice as
much as it has formerly" produced, with the
same amount of cultivation. It is had for the
futil, becanse it i kept in a very foul condition,
which, of courw, renders it le pnductie.
And it is bad fur the country, because field ag
riculture is th great motixe power of the na
tion, and anything that tends to diminish the
quantity of grain will tend to cripple the re
sources of our government.
We refer, particularly, to the practice of
growing oats for many years in succession on
the same soil, by plowing it only once, and
seldom returuiug anything iu the form of feittl
Uers, to compensate for the crops that have
been removed. Thousand of acres of excellent
land for agricultural purposes are cultivated in
this way, until Canada thitlc, wild mustard,
horse dtck, any many other noxious weeds have
takeu almost entire Kuiou of the muI; and one
of the worst feature in this system of manage
ment with the oat crop N, nil the weeds mature
their seed ltefore the oats an ripe enough to cut,
and enough is shelled out, when the fiats are
harvested, to seed the soil for seven years to
com, and the Canada thistle seed is blown nil
over the country. In all suth localities if fir
luers will discontinue nats, and raie a emp of
Indian com one ear, and a crop of buckwheat

are able to make, they will soon (Tnd that It will

for several year iu siicteisioii. It is quite jm
practicable for a fanner to avail himself of th

The First Calf.
It is often the tase when a heifer has her first
calf, sas the Iadtaua Faruert that the farmer
thinks she will not give more milk than will
keep her calf in good condition, aud lets them
run together to tea h her the mvsttrv of being
milked when she has her next calf. In this de
cision there are two mistakes that go far to
spoil the cow for future usefulness. Cons are
largely the creatures of habit, aud with their
first calf everything i new and strange to them,
aud they readily submit to be milked, aud think
H is all right, but snfier them to run with the
calf the first season, and a vicious habit i estatt
1 1 shed that they will hardly forget in a lifetime.
If they ever snlunit to It milked quietly, it is
evidently tinder protest. But there is a great
er objection than this. The calf miming with
the i on drawa the milk every hour or two, mi
that the milk vensels are nt no time distended
t with milk, though the quantity secreted in a
given lime may tie large, lint tuis is the natur
al tune to distend the milk ducts and expand
the udder to a giod capacity for holding milk.
When with her next calf, 5011 require the milk
to lie retained twelve hourx, the udder becomes
hard and painful, and the milk leaks from the
treats OI more likely, nature accommodates
the quantity of milk secreted to the capacity to
retatu it, and the cow becomes permanently a
small milker. Much of the future character of
the cow, therefore, depends on her treatment
with her first calf.
Thick vs. Thin Seeding1.
The world-long discussion now going on is
likely to continue indefinitely in regard to thick,
thin, deep, and shallow seeding; for the best
arguments of oue are overthrown by another, 110
one seeming to make any allowances for gov clu
ing conditions It is impossible to make a drill
cover the wheat of an entire tieid jnt so many
inches in depth and ju&t so many berries to the
inch, and yet who can at harvest tell where the
deep covered wheat was So often it is in re
gard to the qnautity of the seed, and yet up to
a certain point, and wheat is increased iu jield
proportionately to the amount of heed sown,
tooling or "tillering" can never le relied ujron
implicitly to increaso the- nnmber of w heat heads
upon au acre. The truth is that a field nf wheat
tints seeded is quite as likely to lie thinly head
ed as to throw out uew shoots. All things Ite
ing equal, the method of broad casting wheat
was never excelled, but the tlrill saves lalter,
seed, secures a greater uniformity, covers all the
seed at same depth, and expedite wining, and
therefore the drill has the advantage. With
thicker thm seeding the question is only an
snired bj knowing the disposition of the wheat
to the tiller; the liability of the laud to throw
out the wheat bv freezing, and tho vitality of the
wheat itself to germinate and dev elope its
stalks. Xo theory will cover this ground, aud
judgment must alwavs be the safer guide.
Take Care of the Colts.
In raising colts it is very essential always
to maintain a very keen relish for food and
sharp apietite in the young animal. This can
only lm don by trictly guarding against over
feeding with grain, lor a Tt-mouths old foal of
about medium size, if the weather le moderate,
altout one and a half pints of oats ton meal will
le enough. Later, and w ith tho advent of cold
weather, one quart at each meal may Ite fed.
with as much corn as could le" shelled
from a single ear. When the colt j-ets a
little older, give it the com unoa th
ear, the shelling of which will nttord him
amusement. Have warm qnarters in cool weath
er. and have them kent clean and well ventilat
ed. Torn the animal oi.t to run during the
wannest part of the winters day for exercise.
Provide tlir colt with a generous supply of dry
bedding. Allow no manure to remain a" day in
the colt's box or stall, always keeping the floor
clean and well lighted. Accustom the young
animal to be fearless aud have full canfidence iu
you aud your actions.
Burn the Bug3.
A Kansas farmer thinks that by proper exer
tion the chinch bug may be so V&ectually de
stroyed that there will not be enough of the
tribe left to damage the crop next season. He
claims that "the Imgs found in fields secreted
on com stalks and other exposed places will,
noon examination, lie fonnd to lie dead, reduci
ble to powder and almost odorless. It is only
the ones that take refuge about tbe roots of the
tall rank grasa of the ravines in the fields and
around them, and in all prar.e grass wherever a
thick coating may lie found, that live to io
harm the next season, and it is not only mv
opinion, bet that of others haed noon actnal
experience aud close observation, that all this
old grass as soon and whenever It can be done
with safety, honld be burned, thus robbing
eftheirsbelterand exposing them to frequent
freezing and thawing aud the drying winds f'11
it is this that destroys them, ami whenever so
exposed they seem to die of evaporation. Kan

Sow Torn Oats The importance of sowing
early is well understood by all progres-sire farm
ers. As soon as the ground is sufficiently dry
so that it can be plowed and harrowed, oats
should be got in. Early sown oats are always
neavier, ana wnen once in. they are out of the
way of all other work. We have known oats
to be sown in tltelat of February in Xew Jer
sey, and tbe crop was remarkably good. In the
Xew England aud Middle States they can be
got in from the last to the middle of March, on
dry soil; on wet lands as early in April as possi
ble. Farm cad Firetnde.

One pleasant morning in August, 177.', Gen.
Washington set out from headquarters at Cam
bridge mi horseback for recreation; and, as was
frequently the case, he was iu civilian's drew
and unattended. He bad gone a couple of miles
iu the direction of Watertawn, when he saw a
woman, far advanced in years, bitting in a door
way and moaning pitcously. His sympathy
was aroused, and he inquired:
"What troubles you, my good Woman P
She replied: "Oh, sir, some rebel soldiers
have Iteeu here this morning aud stolen or des
troy ed everything iu my garden. I bad culti
vated the garden with my own hands ftnl liMk
ed to what I should gather from it for the sup
port of my invalid husband and myself during
the coming winter."
"May I see j our husband P
"Certainly. He is always glad to have anv
one call upon him."
Washington dismounted, tied his horse to a
fence, and then followed the woman into tlm
house, wheie, on his way, he found evidences of
extreme poverty. He was, however, cordially
welcomed by the feeble old man, who, ltolterel
up in bed, extended him a thin, colorless hand.
For half an hour or more tbe Commander-in-Chief
of the American annv held convert wilh
the aged co'iple, during which be learned that
they were the most pronounced Tories aud had
two sons their only children among Gage's
troops iu Boston. Before taking his departure
he drew some money from his jtocket, aud held
it toward the woman, saving, "This will enable
y oil to provide for our present needs." She at
hrst manifested a reluctance to receive it, but
finally accepted it, with thanks. Then ho prom
ises! that Gen. Washington should be informed
of the treatment to which his soldiers had sub
jected her.
"General Washington H she exclaimed. "He
is our bitterest enemy, and will, doubtless re
joire M know that any who sympathize.with the
British have Iteen abused."
"I think you are mistaken in regard to his
diM)sition; 1 hope yon are, at least," was the
replj, with a smile, as he left the house.
He immediately rode to Major-Genrral Put
nam, who commanded the centre division of the
army stationed at Cambridge and having ac
quainted htm with what he had learned, order
el a search for the marauders to bo instituted,
and that, when identified, they lie sent to his
headquarti r. The third day thereafter au aid

ence. "Are jon the ones who disgraced the uniforms

garden P aked Washington, sternly.
"Mie i a Ton," was the indirect reply.
"N she told tue, and also that her sous are iu
the British army. But she was a trowaa, never
theless, aud for that reason, if 110 other, entitled

worthy of oppressors rather thau those who as

they molested," addres-ing the officer having
t hem iu charge, "and vs that they fully com
pensate 1h r for the damage wrought. Another
oOencrof a like nature will not lie dealt with
so leniently."
Later in the day, while be was busily engaged
in writing, a servant informed him that a vroman
awaited him in an adjoining room, who was
urgent to see him privately.
"Ask her to step in here," said Washington,
laving aside his quill.
When the woman presented herself before him
he saw she was the one iu whose, Whalf he had
acted a f-w hours previously. Slie went to him,
and placing her trembling Kami upou bis ami,
said, "God bless youP Then the tears came,
aud she could articulate no more.
"Please be seated, madanu" and Washington
placed a chair for ber.
She seated herself, and as soon as she conld
command her voice, continued:
"Only a little time ago the soldiers who rob.
lied my garden came and gave me a sum of
money more thaii sufficient to make gossl my

so unlike Gen. Gage, who never emails bis men to

have done to the rebels would notbe likely to

Within the month two soldiers this woman's

themselves with those who fought Itcneath the

severely wounded in the assault on Quebec, un

A New Anecdote of Washington.
The latp Francis Lieber, a distinguished jnr
ist. gave in a letter to a friend a new anecdote
of Washington, one which exhibits thai great
man's ginsl sense:
An incident of more than usual interest ocenr
red to-day, just after the clas in constitutional
law was dismissed at the university. I had
been lecturing nttou the advantage of the Bi
cameral svstera (two Houses in one Legislature),
had dismissed the class, and was almnt to leave
the room, when a young man, who I knew had
taken instructions under Lahotilayr. in Paris
approached me and said that what I had urged
in regard to the bi-rameral system reminded him
of a story which he had heard Libonlaye relate.
I was interested, of course, and? as the class
gathered around, he proceeded with the follow
"Laltoula.ve said. In one of bin lectures that

butd with French ideas as even to admire tbe
t,ni.erineral svstem of le-Halation. one dav visit
ed Washington at Mount Vernon, and in the
ronrsr of the conversation t list ensued, tbe com
pilative excellence of the two systems came up
for consideration. After considerable had Iteen
said on liotli sides finally, at the tea-table,
Washington, turning shnrply to Jefferson, said:
" Vou, sir, have just demost rated the superior
excellence of the bi-cameral svstem bv v, our own

Yon have mnrcd your tea from your cn-

other honse will serve as a wonderful cooler,
and by tbe time it is debated and modified by
various amendments there, it Is mnrh more like

get along without the Mincer Iu onr y stent."
Washington's Literary Style.
In such rough drafts of Washington's letters
as are before us tbe illussrious writer seems to
have taken the greatest pains to find the exact
word wanted. General Washington, as has been
frequently stated, was not what is called a ready
writer. Yonr ready writer, like your voluble
speaker, has mostly a slip-shod style, slights his
work, and is satisfied with but a half meaning.
A very clear, straight-forward style belongs to
Washington. What he writes is to the point,
and bits squarely and truly, and without un
necessary verbiage. "When he want to, he
sends the arrow-iieau nome. wiidoue useless
feathering to the shaft. If Washington labored
at time to get tbe exact wonl to suit him, his
vocabulary was rarely at fault. It seems quite
ev ident that Washington never wrote an impor
tant letter withont having first made a rough
copy. Even letters 011 minor topics show this
aame patient care. Sometimes three or fonr
drafts were made, diligently worked up, fall of
interlineations and changes before the perfect
copy was achieved. D. Phillip, la Harpertltag-
Mart WAsmxcrrox, the mother of Washing
ton, was bnried at Fredericksburg, Ta. In
1331 a wealthy Xew York man, Mr. Burrows
E reposed to erect a monument over the grave at
is own expense, aud Andrew Jackson helped
to lay the comer stone, but, as Mr. Barrows
failed in business work was stopped half way.
The people of Fredericksburg now ask Congress
to bare the monument finished.
TnE monument to Desaix, on the des Epis,
near Strasbourg, has been restored. The im
mense helmet, 7 fret A Inches high, which in
1822 was removed by order of Louis XVIII, has
beenjeplaced on its summit; the helmet is one
bloek of red stone. The old inscription gilt
llftters on black marble has been pat back:

We commend the following advice, from one of
tbe moat distinguished physiciatiain tbe country,
to the careful attention, nut only of valetudina
rians, bat of thane in the eujoymeotof what they
deem perfect health. The extract occurs in a
little work, entitled "Pfavsical Kdncation. orlhe
Preservation or Health.1' bvJohn C. Warren.
IVofessor of Anatomy and Surgery in Harvard!
University. j
In this discourse I have strongly recommended j
me external use 01 coia waicr, suu -sjK:iaii(T 01
ine Miower Uatn. since it was delivered, tue
g employment of cold water externally has been
'very much extended the shower bath especially
has been introduced into a great number of fani
iliea. There is room, however, for a very great
extension of this practice, and a sense of its util
ity leads me to make farther remarks upon it.
The application of cold water to the bumau
body is beneficial principally In two wava; first,
as a purifier; second, as a tonic; first, it purifies
the body bv removing fruui Its surf are, thoe rx
c ret ions which are continually ponrrd out. The
skin U an outlet, by which are discharged mat
ters necessary to bo thrown ont of the system;
for, if retained, they would produce ill -tease.
These matters cause an incrustation over the
surface of the skin, aud this to a certain extent,
obstruct the little orifice through which those
exhalations lake place. Physicians and surgeons
are in tbe habit of observing deplorable instances
of filthy concretions on the skin of poor patients,
and this kind of neglect, nnfortnuately, is not
wholly confined to the lower class.
Besides these exhalations tbe surface of tbe
Mu becomes more or less charged with cuticnlar
exfoliations, which ought to be daily removed.
The linen taken from tbe body of a poor person.
is sometimes seen to shed a shower of flakes of
separated cuticle. The regular removal of these
substances not only gives more free outlet to
cautaneoas exhalation, but the process by which
they are removed also serves to promote the
healthy actions of the capillary vessels of this
organ. Further, the want of cleanliness produce
a$ctnt from tbe body, which can be readily re
cognized, and which does not exist in those who
are in the habit of frequent and thorough ablu
tion. And in connection with this I would re
mark, that I have noticed In persons undergoing
snrcical operations even slicht lu degree, that a
frtid exhalation tool place from the whole surface ef
ue turfy.
lam inclined to think that the most conve
nient and efficient mode'or producing the bene
ficial effects nf cold water on the whole body, is
by the Shun er Bath. This was recommended by
moiutheprecediug lecture of le&, and all that
I have seen of its effects since that time, has led
to tbe belief that it has an efficiency snperiorto
that of other modes. The impulse of water gives
a general shock to the svntctu, causes a sensible
increase of strength at tbe moment, and is fol
lowed, when it is sufficiently cold, by a general
and delightful glow. In hot weather I person
ally employ the Shower Bath with great free
dom. I resort to it three or four times a day, and
find It to produce) great refreshment from the
effects of beat.
Parlor Science.
A piece of cotton cloth, impregnated with ba
sic alum and dipped in a hot infusion of cochi
neal, is dyed a lieantifttl crimson.
A red-hot iron ball may bo placed for a short
time close to the skin of the baud, provided a
thin film of charcoal is interposed, becanse the
latter is a bad conductor of heat.
The iodide of mercury, when rubbed across a
sheet of paper, affords a bean t if n I scarlet color.
If this streak be carefully heated, it wil change
to a primrose yellow, and if the crystals are
scratched with a pin, the color changes to scarlet
The "mineral rainbow" may lie ppoduced by
pouring a small quantity of a solutiou of t ere blo
nde of gold into a dish, orcnp containing some
ether in which phosphorus has lieen dissolved.
The gold is instantly reduced in thin films, pre
senting purple, blue and red colors.
White silk may lie gilded by wetting it with
a solution of terchloride of gold, and then expo
sing the thread to the action of sulphurous acid
gas which may be obtaiued by burning a little
sulphur under a jar and confining the vapor.
The silk wilt lie coated iu a few momenta with
minute particles of gold.
Place a small piece of lighted sulphur in a
copper capsule attached to the end of a long
wire, and lower it Into ajar of oxygen. The sul
phur will bum with a lieantiful purple or lilac
colored light. The similar combustion of phos
phorus yields au intensely white light, aud the
snbstance emits clouds of white flaky matter
resembling smoke.
Foil a very amusing experiment, place five
glrssesln a row, then pour into the firstasoln
tion of iodide of potassium, the second a solutiou
of corrosive sublimate, the thinl a small quantity
of iodide of potassium aud some oxalate of am
nion in in, the fourth a solution of chloride of cal
cium, and tbe fifth some sulphide of ammonium.
Xow pour part of the contents of the first glass
into the second, and a scarlet color will be ob
taiued; next ponr the second into the third, and
the mixture will lie colorless; again, ponr the
third into the fourth, and the contents will be
white; finally, pour the fonrth into ths fifth, aud
the mass will be a dense black. Then 3011 will
have bad two glasses colorless oue scarlet, one
white, and one black.
Clean Up Around the House,
To clean whiting, wash with a solution of one
piut of salt to four gallons of water, and wipe
dry immediately.
A little spirits of tnrpentine added to tbe water
with which floors are washed will prevent the
ravages of moths.
Use kerosene, or bath brick, or powdered lime
to scour iron, tin or copper; wash in hot suds
and polish with dry whiting.
To remove spots from furniture, take four oun

Soot falling on the carpet from open chimneys
or carelessly handled stovepipes if covered thick
ly with salt, can be brushed np without injury
to the carpet.
One pound of green copperas dissolved in one
qnart of boiling water will destroy foul smells.
Powdered borax scattered in their haunts will
disperse cockroaches.
To clean oil cloth, wash with warm milk.
Once in six months scour with hot soapsuds, dry
thoroughly, aud apply a coat of varnish. They
w ill last as long again.
To give glass great brilliancy, wash with a
damp uponge dipped in spirits then dust with
powdered bine or whiting (tied in a mnslin bag.)
ami polish with a chamois skin.
When carjiets are well cleaned, sprinkle with
salt and fold; when laid, strew with slightly
moistened bran before sweeping. This, withra1t,
will freshen them up wonderfully.
A paste made of whiting and benzoin will
clean marble, and one made of whiting and chlo
ride of soda, spread and left to dry (in tbe sun
if possible) on the marble, will remove spots
Fullers' earth, mixed to a stiff paste with cold
water, spread on the carpet and covered with
browu paper, will in a day or two remove grease
spots. A second application msy be necessary.
A flannel cloth dipped into warm soapsnds
and then into whitiug and applied to paint,
will remove all grease and dirt. Wash with
clean water and dry. The most delicate paint
will not be injured, and will look like new.
Cottage Cheese. Wherever a cow or cows
are kept, the cream is regarded as the important
part of the milk, while the skim milk goes to
the pigs or the poultry. Of course it is thus util
ized, and ultimately comes amnnd as food, bat
it may ! ! tier to make a more direct nse of it.
The skim milk contains a valuable portion of
that most nutritions looci; in laMug the cream.
only a part of the nutriment is removed. Tbe
skim milk is allowed to ltecome slightly sonr or

Impcre Ice. There is a popular belief that
the impurities of water are snltstantially destroy
ed by freezing, and that the ice, so indispensable
in the hot weather, is pure and healthy. Sotue
eminent Eastern physicians have taken Issue
with this theory, and declare that disease is as
rapibly disseminated from ice as from water.
This is a matter of vital importance, and may
account for much of the sickness so prevalent iu
the summer mouths. Take, for instance, the ice
snpplied to St. Panl. It is obtained from the
river, and Is for the most part clear and appa
rently pure, bnt if there was a proposition to
supply the city with water from the same spot
where the Ice is gathered. It would not be enter
tained a moment. It wonld be recognized as
positively suicidal, and calculated to produce
an epidemic L rami Globe.
