Gather Your Sedi. -. Do not ia3er joor garden products to utter their seeds w hen ripe.-jnst where tbey grew, and then ben spring come, depend on tome thrift neighbor for seed, or eke go to the store and bnj. Partienlarljr trill this appl to those who hare rare and good eeds. All seed honld be gathered m oon as ripe, and pot np in paper bag, and the names written on ; or if jon hare not time to make the bags, tie them np in neat pack age, bnt be snre to label tbetn, ao that if yon are looking for any particular paper, yon need not untie every paper in yonr aeed box to find it. It ia rerj proroking to distribute aeed among friend and neigh bor feeds that jon have been at some pains and expense to proenre-r-and then hare them come to you spring after spring to renew tbem ; being so heedless as never to aave seed for themselves. Ibis aeed, and borrowing, are children of the same family. W hen onr home was a new one, in the wilds of Wisconsin, we had no flowers, aave the wild forest flowers, and they were all strange faces, though none the leu beantifol for that ; but our heart longed for the dear old familiar blossoms that adorned the front yard at the old borne. 60 one day came a package from cousin in Boston, containing thirty va rieties of nice flowers. No babe was ever watched more carefully than oar flow ers during that sommer ; and what a blaze of bloom and beauty they made ; and many were the applications for seeds from neighbors, who bad not seen the like since leaving their homes. We free ly distributed seeds ; but alas, year after year it was tbe aame old story, nntil "charity ceased to be a virtue." In after years when the country became more set tled, and the beautiful shrubbery from tbe nursery had found a place in the yard, the demand for our tlipi was the same. People who were too poor to buy these things, would say to me: "Now, Mrs. S., give me a tlip of that rose in the spring." It would be freely given ; but alas, for the tender plant, transplanted to an un congenial home, and scorched and dried by the drouth of sommer. It died, and so it was for the want of a little care that things failed. One half hour in the evening after snpper dishes are washed, and the milk strained and put away, might be devoted to gathering your seeds, and tending yonr slips from yotir neigh bor's yard, that she was so kind as to give yon. Xorthuettern Farmer. rRESERYiso Sweet Potatoes. A correspondent of the Genesee Farmer telle how he preserves sweet potatoes, thus : In the fall collect from the road the dnstlhat has been formed of mixture of sand and clay, and dry it thoroughly, by either placing it on a platform in the sun or in a kiln. Now, take an old bar rel, put in a thin layer of potatoes one deep only then another of sand, so as to completely cover them, dec, until your barrel is filled, if you happen to hare enough to do it. Keep the barrels, after being filled, in a dry place until frosty weather, then remove them to yonr kitch en loft, where they have the benefit of the fire below to keen them from freezing. and also from becoming damp, cither of which causes tlirm to rot immediately. Now if you can keep "Bridget" from digging them all out and roasting (hem, yon will have them sound and lively the first of May. Indeed, we have kept them a whole year in this manner, and have prat iced it with uniform success for a number of year. To Keep Apples. Wipe every apple dry with a cloth, and see that no blem ished ones are left among them. Have ready a very dry and tight barrel, and cover the bottom with dry pebbles. These will attract the damp of the ap ples. Then put in the fruit ; head np the barrel, and plaster the seams with mortar, taking care to have a thick rim of mortar all round the top. Let the barrel remain undisturbed in the same place, till you want the apples for use. Pippins, bell-flowers, and other of the best sorts, may be kept in this way till .Tnly. Mitt Leslie. Mr. Yancey, of Iowa, advances the idea in the Rural New Yorker, that the only proper time to sow timothy and red top, is when the seed becomes so ripe that it falls to the earth of it own accord in this latitude, from the 20th of July to the middle of August A great many failures occur in sowing in the spring and fall with grain crops, and many farmer have corns to the conclusion, with Mr. Y., that such seedin; won't pay ; that it is better to sow it alone, and at the time above stated. In drying corn for succotash, select sweet corn when in it best state for eat ing green. Scald sufficiently to 'set the milk.' If a small quantity at a time is put in boiling water, it should cot remain over five minutes.' Cut from the cob ; spread on cloths, or a frame covered with net. and exposed to the sun. When well cured, put in bags and hang in a dry place. To pickle aeven pounds of plums, take fonr and a half of sugar, one quart of vinegar, fonr ounces of cinnamon, two onncea of cleves, put the spices in a bsg, scald the sugar, spice and vinegar togeth er, then pour over the plnms, cover tight, let tbem stand on the stove and keep hot, bat not boil, for four hours. Many of tbe herbs that will be wanted next winter for kitchen nse and for med icinal purpose will now be coming into flower, and should be cat and hung np in the ahade to dry. When fully cured, put them in coarse muslin bags, to keep them from flies, dost, Ac, and hang them op in the store room. Some afternoon, when yon think every thing will be killed with frost at night, pall np your vines that arc loaded with green tomatoes, and hang them in the cellar ; they will ripen off finely. I took some from my collar last Christmas day, that were very nice. Tomatoes baked the same as apples, and eaten with salt, pepper and batter, are excellent. Also eaten with sugar and cream. It takes five pounds of corn to form one of beef. Three and a half pounds of cooked meal will form one pound of pork. W$ Jfimcf Cjjutg. Slsefitl aito (Skim to Earn a.

On the mor ning of the meteoric shower in 1832, old Peyton Roberts, who intended making an early start to his work, got np in the midst of the display. On going to his door, he saw, with amazement, tbe sky lit np with the falling meteors, and he concluded at once the world was on fire, and that tho day of judgment had come. He stood for a moment gazing in speech' less terror at the scene, and then with 1 yell of horror sprang out of the door in- to the yard, right into the midst of the falling stars, and there, in hi efforts to dodge them, he commenced a scries of ground tumbling that would have done honor to a rope dancer. His wife, being awakened in the meantime, and seeing old Teyton jumping and skipping about the yard, bawled out to him to know what in the name of common sense he was doin' out thar, dancin round with out his clothes on. But Peyton heard not. The judgment, and long back ac counts he would have to settle, made him heedless of all terrestrial things ; and his wife, by this time becoming alarmed at his behavior, sprang out of bed, and run ning to the door, shrieked out, at the top of her lungs : "Teyton, I Bay, Peyton, what do you mean, iumpin' about thar? Come and put your trowsers on." "Trowsers, Peggy ! whst the h ll's the use of trowsers, when the world's on fire?" A Temperance Stout. Two young men, "with a humming in their heads, retire late at night to their room, in a crowded inn; in which, as they enter, are revealed two beds ; bnt the wind extin gnisliing tbe light, they both, instead of taking, as they snppose, a bed apiece, get back-to:back into one, which begins to sink nnder them, and come around at intervals in a manner very circumambi ent, but quite impossible of explication. Presently one observes to tho other: "I say, Tom, somebody's in my bed." "I there?" says the other ; "so there is in mine, d n him ! Let's kick 'em oat 1" The next remark was : "Tom, I've kicked my man over board." "Good 1" say his fellow toper; "bet ter Inck than I ; my man has kicked me out right on the floor I" Their "relative positions" were not apparent until the next morning. At College, the Senior Class was nnder examination for degrees. The Pro fessor of Natural Philosophy was badger ing the boys in optics.

The worthy Professor, in order to make the matter plainer, said to the wag of the class: "Mr. Jackson, did you ever actually see yonr father ?" Bill replied promptly, " No, ir." "Please explain to tho Committee why yon never saw yonr own father. "Because," replied Mr. Jackson, very gravely, "he died before I was born, sir! Stroxo Arocmikt. .Vb cat has two tails. Granted.

Pointing to a roasted chicken on the ta ble, he said : "Is not that one" And then pointing to another: "Is not that two' And do not one and two make three f" Whereupon his old dad said: " Wife, yon take one and I'll Uke the other, and onr smart boy can have the third for his dinner I Scrub is a Newspaper Office.

ExPEBourra ox Cobjxo thi Bite or m Rattixskaxe. The snake brought by Prof. Christy from the Sooth, says the Cincinnati Gazette, have been need at the Ohio Medical College, in a aeriea of experiment to ascertain an antidote for the poison. A few days since a dog was introduced to the snake's cage, and was immediately bitten. Prof, r oot administered to Dim brandy containing five drachms bromine, four grain of iodide of potassium, and t.ro grains of corrosive sublimate. He recovered in a short time. To test tbe question whether hi recovery was due to the brandy or tbe ingredient it contained in aolution, another dog was suffered to be bitten on the etn ulL, and tbe bromine, iodide of potassium and corrosive subli mate administered alone. An honr after he seemed to be recovering slowly. The next experiment will be to administer tbe brandy alone, which is claimed to be an effectual remedy. A Cure for Hydrophobia. A Saxon forester named Gastell, now of tlte veu erable age of 82 years, unwilling totake to the grave with him a secret of so much importance, ha made public in tbe Liep sic Journal the means which be has used for fifty years, and wherewith, he affirms, be has rescued many human beings and cattle from the dreadful death of hydro phobia : Tako immediately warm vinegar or te pid water ; wash the wound clean there with, and then dry it ; poor then npon the wound a few drops of muriatic acid, be cause mineral acids destroy the poison of the saliva, by which tbe evil effect of the latter are neutralized. now to Preserve Greek Cork. Now that green corn is ao plenty in the market, many are desirous of a good recipe for preserving it. Tho following is very highly recommended : Take a barrel or any convenient cavk a common salt-barrel will do and spread a layer of dry aalt on the bottom to the depth of two inches ; strip tbe ears of their husks and set them upright in the salt, the butt ends down, nntil the bottom is covered. Now Gil np the space between the ears with salt, nntil another layer of an inch or two in depth ia pre' pared for another setting. Repeat the process nntil the cask is filled. Head np and store in a dry place. A Curb for Strains. In the Paris hospitals a treatment is practiced that is found most successful for a frequent ac cident, and which can be applied by the most inexperienced, if tbe ankle is sprain ed, for instance, let the operator hold the foot in his bands, with the thumbs meet ing on the swollen part. These having been previously greased, are pressed suc cessively with increasing force on the in jured and painful spot for about a qnarter of an hour. This application being repeated several times, will, in the course of tho day, enable a patient to walk when other means wonld have fail ed to relieve him. Scientific American. How to Avoid Mosquitoes. A shrewd friend has adopted the following plan, which ho assures us has been entirely ef fectual : "At dusk he opens every window, and carefully closes every door belonging to the chamber. The mosquitoes, attracted by the light outside, rush forth seeking whom they may devour. Then, before going to bed, or bringing in a light, he closes the windows, and of course ex cludes all the outsiders. After the cham ber lights are extinguished, the windowa may again be opened without danger. This is so easy to do that we fear nobodv will try it." How to Neutralize Poisos. A cor respondent of the N. Y. E vening Post says: "A poison of any considerable descrip tion and degree of potency, which has been intentionally or accidentally swal lowed, may be rendered almost instantly harmless by simply swallowing two gills of sweet oil. An individual with a very strong constitution should take nearly twice the quantity. This oil will most positively neutralize every form of vege table, animal, or mineral poison, with which physician and chemists are ac quainted." Cucumber Ketchup. Take three doz en of full grown cu cambers and eight white onions ; peal the onions and en cumbers, and then chop them as fine as possible ; sprinkle on three-quarter of a pint of fine table salt ; put the whole in a seive and let it drain twelve hours. Then take a teacupful of mustard seed, half a teacupful of ground black pepper, and mix them well with the encumbers and onions. Put the whole into a stone jar, with the strongest vinegar ; close it up tightly for three dsys, and it is fit for nse. It will keep for year. Harritburg Union. Cure fob Fever ahd Ague. The fol lowing simple remedy for the cure of ague aod fever has been round very effec tive. Jnst before the chill come on, have a pot of very strong coffee made and keep it hot, and when the first chill ia felt, poor ont about a pint and squeeze the juice of a conple of lemons into it, and a little sugar to make it palatable, drink it off, go to bed and cover np warm. One trial of this often cures, whilst two or three trials never fail. Elderberry Pie. Pat tbe nnder crust on the platter, and ponr on elderberries till half an inch deep ; then sprinkle two tablespoonfnl of floor and two of auger over them, and ponr on tbem a teacupful of sour cream. Pnt on the npper crust, and bake thoroughly. Dried elderberries will make a good pie aa though fresh, if they are soaked a few minntes in hot water before using. Fruit Pies. The acid in fruit pies may be neutralized by adding to each as much carbonate of soda as will cover a twenty-five cent piece. This simple pre caution, which does not affect the flavor of the fruit, will prevent much aicknesa, and save much sugar, otherwise" needed to render the soar sweet. Scientific American.
