From the earliest period of racing history no animal that ever trod the turf has achieved such a record as that of the Uungarian mare Kincsem, whose racing career, up to to the time of writ ing (January, 1880) has not been dim med with a single defeat. Kincsem is a chestnut mare, now six years old, and was sired by Caiubuscan out of Water Nymph, by Cotswold, graudaiu Mermaid, by Melbourne. Cauibuscan was raced iu England at two and three years old, being then a first-class two year-old performer, but did not do much in the following year, and was eventually sold to the Hungarian gov ernment. Water Nymph was bred in Hungary, and purchased for a mere bagatelle by Mr. Blascoyiu. from whom she bred Kincsem, and It is needless to say how little that gentleman thought what a bonanza he was purchasing when he Invested for the first time 111 blood stock. This gentle man is a m erchant in Buda-Pesih, and farms a few aeres near the city, his horses be ing trained by Mr. Uesp. who has a public training stable in that vicinity. Mr. Hesp is a Yorkshireman by birth, and learned the rudiments of his pro fession under John Scott, who was known far and wide in turf circles as the wizard ot the north. The writer was introduced to Mr. Hesp at Frank fort last August, the day previous to Kinesem's fiftieth victory, and. was taken to the mare's stablo, where was she enjoying her evening Iced. Having seen race horses in all quarters of the globe, including Gladiateur, Blair Athol, Cllfden, Longfellow, Harry Rag gett, Monarchist, Duke of Magenta, Wheel of Fortune and many other high class race horses, the writer can safety assert that this mare outshines them all. As she stood in the box, munch ing her corn, a first glance made her out to bo a long, low mare, standing about 15 hands 3 inches, but on going up to her withers he found she was 1G hands 1 inch, and made in proportion. With a long, lean head, wide throttle and powerful neck, well set off to slop, ing shoulders, no fault could be found with her forehead. Her depth through the girth is immense, and her back is as level as a billiard table, ller muscu lar power has borne her owner's colors first past the post in fifty-four consecu tive races. Her action when extended is simply perfection and her gtride im mense, the way she tucks her hind legs under her being a treat to witness. Her temper too, is perfect, but having been pampered since she was a baby, the mare has naturally a fe v whims and peculiarities. She is very particu lar about the water she drinks. On one occasion she flatly refused to drink the water brought to her, and a cart was sent some miles to a neighboring Town te fetch her some of a different kind, which she was graciously pleased to approve of. Mr. Hesp*alwaystakes his own hay and oats with him when he leaves home, in case of being unable to find provender to suit her ladyship. In one race as a two-year old she was standing when the flag fell, losing fifty yards, but this did not help heroppon entsatail. At two years old she won ten races; three years old, seventeen; four years old, fifteen; and five years old, twelve—making fifty-four in all up to this year. There is hardly a sire of note in the English stud-book that she does not trace back to. Cold weather or hot, hard tracks or mud, come all alike to her, and traveling in cars on the eve of a race never diminishes her wonderful powers. She Is rightly named Kincsem, which, literally inter, preted, means darling. A Strong Case. A Detroit lawyer had a bill of $240 against a certain citizen put into his hand for collection the other day, and he wrote a note asking the debtor to call at his office and see about it. The man promptlj' appeared, looked the bill over, and said: "Well, I guess that's all correct." "You acknowledge the Indebtedness, do you?" "I do." "And what arrangements will you make to settle it?" "I'll put in an offset. I've been feed ing two hogs for this man all winter, and my bill is just $-240. I was figur ing it up this very morning. ' "What! $240 for feeding two hogs for three or four months!" exclaimed the astonished lawyer. "Just four months, sir, and the bill is correct." "And what are the hogs worth to day ?" "Ten dollars apiece." "Well, you'll find it hard to convince the court that your hog-teed was worth any such money." "Ilog-feed !" shrieked the other, as he suddenly jumped up, "do you sup pose I'm charging $240 for the feed them hogs devoured I No, sir, I put in the feed at only S4O, but the S2OO is for my Sunday hat, which fell into the pen and was gobbled down, and for my anxiety of mind for fear the porkers would catch the mumps from my chil dren. Mental anguish is the backbone of this case, sir, and every one of my family will be seated in a row before the Jury, and all will begin to weep as I rise to ask that justice be done a man who lost as fine a cow as you ever saw nine years ago this spring!" Estahll&li Healthful Co-operation between the stomach, the liver and the bowels, it you want to banish sick headaches, nerv ousness and mei tal despondency. Upon the vigor of the first named organ deptnds the good service of the two iatter. That fine stomachic, Hostetter's Bitters, pure, approvtd by physicians, derived from the beet botanic sources, soon put-i to rout the symptoms which make the lives of nervous, bilious inva lids miserable. The very fountain bead of such trouble is feebleness of dgeetiou, for which it is an incomparable, long established and widely celebrated remedy. It builds up the oonstim ion when shaken by disease, and protects it against malarial and otber hurtful influences. It is an agreeable appetizer, a useful strengthening oord al for the oonva lescent, and greatly mitigates the gather ng infirmities of age. AGRICULTURE. PLOWING.—-' There are minor points counected with the subject of plowing which are worthy of careful considera tion. The field should be so arranged that long furrows may be plowed, in stead of short ones, that is, if half an acre only is to be plowed, economy in labor and time would suggest a field of eighty rods in length and one rod in width rather than four rods in width and twenty rods long. In the first in stance the plowman would have to turn bis team sixteen times, providing that the furrow is twelve Inches in width, while in the second eaie sixty-seven turnings of the team would be neces sary, 'occupying more time than was employed in turning the sod. Again the width of the furrow is a serious item In the cost of plowing. In the first case above mentioned, If the furrow turned should be eight inches In place of twelve, not only would twenty-four turnings of the team be required instead el sixteen, but the team would be forced to travel one third further, while in the second case previously stated eighty-nine turnings would be necessary instead of sixty seven. If the length of the furrow be the same in both oases, yet by faking a furrow one-third broader, three acres may be plowed In the same time occu pied in plowing two acres wltto a nar row furrow. There are plows in the market which will turn a twelve-inch furrow with equal ease to the horses, as other plows give in turning eight-inch furrows. Yet many farmers still con tinue working with an old style plow, difficult of draft, simply because they cannot afford to purchase a new and more modern implement that would more than save its extra cost in a sin gle season. now TO CATCH A FOWL.— Few per sons know how to secure a bird to ad vantage. Never seize a fowl by the tail, if a fine bird, or touch the back, but grasp both legs at once with a firm, tight, quick hold, then raise free front the ground or perch, and hang the body down clear of any obstacle. This method does not ruffle the plum age, which in a fine bird must be avoid ed. When the web of the feather is once broken, it can never be united again, and where much handled this often occurs, giving to the bird a rag ged appearance. It is the source of much annoyance to a nice, clean, smooth bird, to have the plumage ruf fled. Their bodily covering is regarded with the utmost care, and the lustre and beauty of it indicates the health and strength ol the fowl. Toxic FOR FRCIT TREES —Sulphate of iron (green copperas) dissolved in water, at the rate of two pounds to the barrel, makes an excellent tonic for all kinds of fruit trees, especially pear, peach and quince. It may be sprinkled around under the trees with a water ing-pot, about blooming-time, or it may be sprinkled in its dry state, two or three ounces around each tree. Tids solution is cheap, but it uiay be made ir. sufficient quantities for the merest trifle, as follows: Put old nails or scrap* of old iron In an old kettle; put a quart of sulphuric acid into a gallon of water and pour it upon the scraps. A few days will make it strong enough ; take it out and fill up again with the diluted acid. The effect of this tonic on yellow, sickly trees is often surpris ing. The solution should taste but lit tle of the copperas. A quart at a time, once a week, will soon change the color of leaves from a s'.ckly yellow to a dark green. GROWING SAGE. —In regard to sage, many have it tor a year or so, when it disappears. To have sage continuous ly, it is best to treat it every second year as we would box-edgings, that is, it should be taken up, split apart, and set in the ground much deeper than it was the year beiore. Roots then come out from the vigorous young wood, and the plants seem better adapted to stand extremes of heat and cold than when the branches are exposed on long stalks. Sage is not so liable to get killed out in the winter when it is left untourhed. Many cut back some of it for drying. Indeed, dried sage is the form in which it is chiefly used. When this is done regularly the plants do not need re planting so olten. WARM WATER FOR PLANTS.— There is no mistaking the perfect effect ot warm spring rains upon young grass or plants, and its Influence upon the ger mination of seeds; whilst autumn rains unless they, too, are warm—pro duce no such sudden and vivifying ef fect. Let us learn care from these ef fect's in nature, and not chill our flow ers with cold water, nor poison them with filthy water. SOFT SHELLED EGGS. —When soft eggs are laid by fowl they indicate usually that the egg organs are inflammed. This state is occasioned by the birds being over fed or too fat. Spare diet and plenty of green food, especially lettuce leaves in summer, or cabbage In winter, is the best treatment for fowls in such condition. A RATHER limited test of the plausi ble theory that milk is one of the best foods to produce milk, has convinced us that when a sheep has rather a limited supply of milk for her lambs, skimmed milk can be fed to her with better and quicker results than shorts or roots. SCN FOR FLOWERS. —Abutilions do not need a great deal of sunlight; col iseum ivy will do well in * hanging pot at a north window. Geraniums all require as much sun as you can give them, to have them look well and blos som. CATTLE as a general thing don't thrive well in a barn where they can see all that is going on out of doors through the cracks in the boarding. There mugt be a seclusion to a certain extent in the barn. VEGETINE in Powder Form comes within the reach of all.

AT a crowded French country thea tre a woman fell front the gallery to the pit, and was picked up by one of the spectators, who, hearing her groan ing, aked her if she was much injured.

"Well, there is at least one case of gratified ambi tion," was the reply.' "MEN often jump at conclusions," says the proverb. So do dogs. One recently jumped at the conclusion ot a cat, which was sticking through the opening of a partly cosed door, and it created a great disturbance.

Put It in a baking pan with about a pint of boiling stock, gravy, or beef drippings, and bake. Hast it frequently, at least every tsn minutes. Thirty minutes before the ineat is cooked re move tho paste cover; when cooked serve on a hot dish with gravy made as follows: About two hours before the ioint is baked put Into u pot of cold water sufficient to cover the scraps trimmed from the joint, or one or two pounds of venison cut Into pieces; season with cayenne pepper, salt, cloves, and nutmeg. Cover and let it slmiuer; remove the scum as It rises. When it has simmered to about one-half the quantity of water used, take it from the tire and strain the gravy. After the Joint is removed, put the gravy lino the baking pan and stir into it one or two tablespooufuls of blended brown flour. Let it boll up at once, and serve in a separate dish.

ATPLK CHARLOTTF.. —Butter a deep baking bowl, line it with thin slices ol w beaten bread which have been soaked in sweet cream; till the bowl to within one inch of the top with sliced apples in layers, with beef marrow ; sugar and grated lemon or orange peel; cover il e apples with thin slices ef bread soaked in cream; cover tiie bowl closely with an ordinary earthen-ware pie-dish, in which place water to prevent its crack ing; bake in rather brisk oven from one hour to one and one-half hour, at cording to the size of tiie charlotte.

Fill with good fresh pork, in equal parts of fat and lean, cut fine; put on a crust of the same dough, and bake slowly on an ordinary pie pan. No pan or dish is necessary to hold up the edges. ALUM IN BREAD.— To disc ver whether bread is adulterated with alum, soak tiie bread in water, and to the water in wliic i it has been soaked add a little of the solution of piuriate of lime, upon which, if any alum lie present, the liquid will be pervaded with niilkines6; but if the bread be pure, the liquid will remain limpid. Rationale; Sulphuric acid has a stronger alfinity lor lime hin alumina and potassium, with which it forms alum; it therefore quire thos<- bodies to form sulphate of lima with the lime of tho test, which produces the milkiness. HARD SOAP. —One pound of concen trated ly in two quarts of soit water; pour inio a large pitcher to cool. Melt Ave pounds grease of any kind, have it milk-warm and pour in the lye -lowly, stirring rapidly until it liegius to thicken. Add one or one halt ounce oil of sassafras.

When drv, it will look like new , if carefully done. CROUP, it is said, can B cured in one minute, and the remedy is simply alum and c ug.r. The way to accomplish the deed is to take a knife or grater, and shave ofl' in small particles about a tea spoonful of alum; then mix it witii twice its quantity of sugar, to make it p ila able, and administer it as quick ly as possible. Almost instantaneous relief will follow. GRAVIES.— To have gravy always on hand you must do as the French do— namely: Save gristle and every bone left from cold meat or fresh. The bones must be chopped small and put on to stew, with enough water to cover. Leave the tat on until you need to use the gravy. By this means it will keep longer. • A Co VT of gum copal varnisb applied to the soles of boots and shoes, and re peated as it dries, until the pores am tilled and the surface shines like pol ish mahogany, will make the soles water-proof, and it lasts three times as long.
