" When bees cease gathering surplus honey for the season, which in many places occurs in this month, they should have enough sealed honey in the hive to winter them safely. If they do not have itthey should immediately be fed until they do have it. Undoubtedly the lest way to do this is to give them sealed honey troni another hi ve, if pract itable; ol hen ise t hey may be fed liqui fied honey, or a syrup made by boiling refined su gar in enough water to make -it of the consisten tency of honey, adding one or two ponuds of honey to each ten pounds of sugar, to keep it from crys talizing. I have feil barrel f sugar in the fall, Trhgi I had a lot of light late swarms without suffi cient supplies. They do not generally winter as well as those'that gather sufficient supplies ear lier in the-season. IT then liquid feed must be used, feed Jwt as early as) on decide it will be Laeresnary. Bersgeimc uysenteryin winter from eating poor or sour honey, bad air, from perhaps impro per ventilation. Sealed honey rarely sours; unsealed sours very easily if kept in a cellar or damp place, especially if in a comb uncovered with bees. When bees gather supplies late or are fed, there is usually a lot of unsealed honey. It would be well to remove this with a machine from the out side combs, and in all xorobs where the bees will not cluster, as it is worse, than waste for the bees to nse it after it sours. Those using machines to remove surplus honey will sometimes have swarms with too little first quality honey remaining when the season closes, especially when the fall snpplies are less abun dant than usual. Liquid feed will not fully make np such a deficiency. For fall feeding, nse plain tin feeders with up right side, coated with wax on the inside, and supplied with wooden floats. Ther hold about five pounds each, and shonld be filial daily till the swarm is supplied. Set them inside the cap, and feed just at night. I have been thus explicit on this point of un sealed honey, because I believe it to be a prolific source of trouble afterward, and because it is a point frennently overlooked. If Mr. Gallup's directions for August have been followed, the swarms will now all be strong, and but little more now remains to be done, except to remove surplus honey and contract the en trances to prevent trouble by robbing. There is, however, little trouble with the Italians in this respect. J. L. Hubbard, in Bee Kttpcri Journal. Feediag aad Fecal for Flaw. Mr. S. O. Stcarn, a celebrated English breeder of pigs, describes his management of them as fol lows: "Pigs cat the feed much better when it is fresh. I gHe them a Tariety of meal, such as wheat, maize, barley, and whateeris most convenient to mix together. I have it all wetted with cold wa ter, and then scald it with boiling water, and sprinkle it with salt. What is mixed one day is used the next, thns giving sufficient time to allow the food slightlv to ferment and cool sufficiently to feed with. This is my winter plan, but in the summer I mix all with cold water, and feed with cold food. Between meals I give them whole maize, and mangold wnrzel or swedes cnt small, a little coal and soil occasionally, and allow them plenty of clean water. When pigs are put np for fattening, I find nothing better to feed them with than barley and maizo meal, mixed together into slops, water always kept? by them, and a little mangold cnt for them occasionally. It is very beneficial to wash and brush as often as conve nient. This is quickly done by experienced hands, and will amply repay for the trouble. lam cer tain that the cottagers would find their pigs fat ten a good deal faster if they would wash and brush them, and feed them with warm food, in-j eieau ui iuuu aim ice; ana luac mey wouiu tie well paid for any little extra trouble it might cause them. They shonld also be fed two or three times a day. Good-bred and well-fed store pigs will al ways consume the refuse which a bad-bred ones would refuse." Wisterias; Colts. A snug shed or stable is best for wintering colts, irovided they be halter-broke, which they should ie before winter sets in. They will eat aU sorts of coarse food, bnt should have a little grain or meal according to their size and age. They should, if convenient, run out a part of the flay. They love to forage ou a cattle dung-heap, and pick out the waste litter. Let them liave all they want of it, as it is a healthy variety for them. A dry pas ture, when snow is off the ground, is a good change for them also. We have w intered many colta in our farming, and found that nothing got through the season easier than they. Their hair gets long and sometimes rough. No matter, there is a close fur under it, and it keeps tbem dry and warm, and they are all the better in the spring. Euongh to eat, with good shelter, is all they want to keep them healthy and growing. But they should not run out with the cattle, as they are liable to get hooked, while they, in tnrn, drive the cattle from their food. Every one to his own kind in tne tarmyam, as other appropriate places. ProtecUsm of Waaler Wheat. It is suggested bv a western fanner, says The Maryland Farmer, that wheat fields may be pro tected from the severe weather of winter by sowing oats with tho wheat, or rather son ing oats first and covering them, and then follow in a day or two with wheat. It is thought the oats, will help protect the wheat- during the winter, disap pearing, of course, in the spring. Another plan is to mulch the wheat, late in tbe fill, with fine mannre, or lacking this, with a coating of straw. What effect either of these plans may have in pro tecting the wheat from the severity of the winter,. we no not Know, uae or an ot them might be tried on small lots of ground, and their compara tive merits be tested at a trilling expense. As the country becomes divested of the forest trees the wheat fields are exposed to increasingly severe trials from wind and frost Less snow fally now than formerly, and what does come is borne from the wheat fields bv the winter blasts which career over them since divested of the protection of snr ronuding forests. Mta-rim PsXataes. As the time has arrived for potatoesA-tho early sorts to be harvested, I wish to say to those who have them to harvest, to put them in barrels as the best mode of disposing of them. There are those who have tried this for years, and can not bo persuaded to keep their potatoes in any other way. Dig and expose to the air till dry ; then put up as uirecied, raiting me oarreis to tne nelu. Store in the cellar, any part most convenient The advantage is that the air is not exposed, as with open bins, which often vitiate it, and always lrave a potato odor. Yon have nothing of this.

Fifty years ago political parties tolerated honest differences of opinion, without severing social relations or en gaging in bitter and acrimonious denunciations. Fifty years ago labor was considered honorable, and the worth of men and women was measured by their habits of industry and usefulness to so ciety, instead of bj their ornament in dress or of the skill of the tailor or handiwork of the milli-' ner and mantanmakcr. Fifty years ago our par lors (pardon me, our log cabins were furnished with spinning wheels and looms instead of pianos and melodeons.

Thu most pamfDjcd'ae disease of, the nails is caused by the improper -auanner of catting the nail (generally of the great toe) and then wear ing a narrow, badly made shoe. The nail begin ning to crow-too lone aod rather wide at the cor-' ner, is often trimmed around the corner, which gives temporary relief, bat it then begins to grow wider in the side where it was cut oft, and. as the shoe presses the flesh against the comer, the nail cnta more and more into the raw flesh, which be comes more and more tenderand irritable. If this state continues long, the toer becomes more and more painful and ulcerated, and fungus (proud flesh) spouts np from the sorest points. Walking greatly increases the suffering, till positive rest becomes indispensable. Begin the effort atrenre by simple application to tbe tender part of a small quantity of tincture of perchloride of iron. There is immediately a moderate sensation of pain, constriction, or burn ing.

It is not generally known that the art of pre serving fruit in cans had its origin in Gettysburg, as the result of the experiments made by the late Prefessor Jacobs, in tbe wiuter of 1843 and 184S. Knowing that meats had long been preserved iu cans, and referring the preservation of fruit by means of sugar to the action of the syrup in ex cluding the air, he contended that a better and more economical application of the sameprinciple might be made. Reducing the fruit to a pulp, or surrounding it with a sufficient amount of liquid to fill up all spaces, the air was expelled by rais ing the heat to the boiling point. The cans being then filled and soldered so as to be air tight, the experiment proved a perfect success. Communi cated at first to a few of his friends, the art was rapidly made known, so that in three years time it Had spread to all pans ot tno country. rita delpkia Telegraph. Poison in Bread.

The Jr csircs of Fkarmaeu gives the following recipe: Macerate five parts of good glue in eighteen tn twenty parts of water for a day, and to tho liquid add nine parts of rock caudy and three parts of cum arable. The mixture can bo brnshed upon paper while lukewarm ; it keeps well, does not stick together, and, when moistened, adheres firm ly to bottles. For the labels of soda or seltzer water bottles, it is well to prepare a paste of good rye flour and glne, to which linseed oil, varnish, and turpentine have been added, in the proportion of half an ounce each to the pound. Labels pre pared in tho latter way do not fall off in damp cellars. Carpets, Dust axd Disease. An atmosphere impregnated with the dust which has gathered in carpets and remained there for a considerable length of time, is posit" ely unhealthy. The dust after being stagnant for some time, especially in warm weather, presents myriads of animalculie. To prevent the e il the carpets should be cleaned often. The dnst should be thoronghly removed every month. The trouble of taking np, shaking, and replacing will be amply repaid, first in tbe matter of health, secondly, in preserving tho car pet Home and Health. The fart seems well established that certain ar-. tides, such as old wearing apparel, well-dried wood, &c-, are capable of generating sufficient heat to induce combustion without tbe applica tion of fire. "We think that not a few of the nu merous fires, "supposed to be the work of an in cendiary," are caused by, perhaps, a rag which has been nsed with benzine by the frugal house wife to clean a coat, or by the heat which is known to be generated from articles of silk, cot ton, &C, shut np in a close room. To Stop Bleeding. It is said that bleeding from a wound, on a man or beast, may be stopped by a mixture of wheat flonr and common salt, iu equal parts, bound on with cloth. If the bleed ing be profuse, use a large quantity, Bay from one to three pints. It may be left.on for hours, or even days if necessary. The person who gave ns this recipe says that, in this manner, he saved the life of a horse which was bleeding from a wounded artery; the bleeding ceased iu five minutes after the application. QcrxiXE Bisccrrs. A new dietary article has been introduced by the London bakers, in the shape of quinine biscuits. They are small, ex tremely well made, and have a pleasant and del icately bitter f tvor. Each biscuit is estimated to contain one-fourth of a grain of quinine, and for delicate stomachs, or where it is desirable to dis guise medicine as mnch as possible, or to combine food with midicine in a perfectly agreeable form, these biscuits are likely to become popular. A scientific Jonrnal savs : " It is well known that when the color of a fabric has been destroy ed hy acid, ammonia U applied to neutralize the same. But it is not so well known that after tho application of ammonia chloroform will, in almost all cases, restore the original color. Chloroform will remove paint from a garment when almost everything else fails." .
