Unworthy of Public Confidence.
Mark Twain says "we left the train lor Switzerland, and reached Lucerne about ten o'clock at night. The first discovery 1 made was that the beauty of the Lake had not been exaggerated. Within a day or two I made another discovery. This was that the lauded chamois is not a wild goat; that it is not a horned animal; that it is not shy that it does not avoid human society; and that there is no peril in hunting it. The chamois is a black or brown crea ture, no bigger than a mustard seed. \ou do not have to go after it; it comes after you. it arrives in vast herds, and skips and scampers all over your body, mside your clothes. Thus it is not shy, but extremely sociable. It is not afraid of rnaii; on the contrary it w ill attack him. Its bite is not dangerous, but neither is it pleasant. Its activity has not been over stated. If you try to put your finger on it, it will skip a thou sand times its own length atone jump, and 110 eye is sharp enough to see where it lights. A great deal of ro mantic nonsense has been written about Swiss chamois and the perils of hunt ing it, whereas the truth is that even women and children hunt it, fearlessly. Indeed, everybody hunts it. The hunt ing is going 0:1 all the time, day and night, in bed and out ot it. It is poetic foolishness to hunt it with a gun. Very few people do that. There is not one man in a million who can hit it with a gun, It is much easier to catch it than it is to shoot it, anl only the expe rienced chamois hunter can do either. Another common piece of exaggeration is that about the scarcity of the cha mois. It is the reverse of scarce. Droves of 100,0e>0,000 chamois aro not unusual in the Swiss hotels. Indeed they are so numerous as to be a great pest. The romancers always dress up the chamois hunter in fanciful and picturesque cos tume, whereas the best way to hunt this game is to do it without any cos tume at all. The article of commerce called chamois skin is another iraud. Nobody could skin a chamois. It is too small. The creature is a humbug in every way, and every thing which has been written about It is sentimental exaggeration. It was no pleasure to me to find the chamois out, lor he had been one ot my pet illusions. All my life it had been my dream to see him in his native wilds some day, and engage in the adventurous sport ot chasing him from cliff to clifl'. It is no pleasure to me to expose him now, and destroy the reader's delight in him and respect for him, but still it must be done, lor when an honest writer discovers an imposition it is his simple duty to strip it bare and hurl it down from its place of honor, no nutter who suffers by it. Any other course would render him unworthy of thenublic confidence. Grizzly Dan Grizzly Dan, oi Montana was never known to steal anything when sober, but he says: ""When I'm drunk, any thing 1 get these five lingers on is mine, and don't you lorget ic." As an In dian tighter, when under the controll ing influence of drink, lie isalsoaholy terror in Montana. He was onee set upon by a whole tribe of howling red devils, and was obliged to run for bis life. lie headed for the brink of a elifl about 700 feet high, dodging the bullets fired at him as he ran, being abie through long practice to tell the course of a ball by the sound as it ap proached from the rear. Grizzly Dan unhesitatingly leaped over the cliff, to the amazement of the Indians, who gathered in a row to watch his fall. Dan turned in the air as he was failing, raised his Winchester rifle tohisshoul der, and pulled the trigger. An In dian toppled over with a ball through his left eye, and Dan kept pulling the level and trigger until seventeen of the red devils had balls through their left eyes and were falling over the cliff after him. The eighteenth shot only carried away an Indian's nose, as the air was so full of falling Indians be tween Dan and the top of the cliff that his aim was a little confused. Hestruck feet first in the river below and swam ashore uninjured. The Indian re maining on ihe top of the cliff was the sole survivor of the tribe, and was ever afterward known as "Man-with-a-hole in-his-nose." UungaiiaiiNKUd Roumanian*. The Hungarians, ail who have trav eled on the Danube know, are dandies in their own fashion. They delight in clean shirts, richly embroidered in red and black; in cotton drawers or trou sers, edged with lace and crochet work, such as English ladies affect upon their clothes, and in magnificent Hessian boot 3, which are brushed to brightness at least onee a week. The male Roumanian, on the other hand, is dirty and careless in his attire. A filthy sheepskin jacket, swarming with RTOOO IC .I-IVI FC AIIUCUI; SIIUIL trou sers, of leather or the coarsest cloth, and the everlasting conical cap, to gether with some minor articles, among which the pistol or knife, stuck in the waist band, must not be forgotten, com pleting his attire. But when we turn from the men to the women we find that the comparsion is reversed. Noth ing can well be more wretched than the dress of the Hungarian women on the banks ol the Danube. At Mohacs, for example, one saw them marching down to the banks of the river to get water, clad in a pair of their hasband's enormous boots, a short petticoat, scarcely reaching to their knees, and a sheepskin jacket that also was evi dently the property of their better half. In Hungary, in short, while the man is well dressed, his wife or daughter is clad like a savage. In Roumania, on the other hand, the dress of the women is decidedly better than that of the men, and offers a most favorable con trast to that worn by their Hungarian sisters. A GREAT many ladies who save every thing else waste their rose leaves. Dried they make the most delightful tilling for sofa pillows, pin cushions, etc., retaining their fragrance a great length of time. FARM AND GARDEN. SMALL CIDER MILLS.—In early times in this country all the cider—and much cider was then used —was made In large mills, owned by individuals or firms, whooperated them in the same manner that grist mills were managed. Every farmer brought his apples to the mill, had them ground and pressed, and re ceived the older that was produeod. lie paid so much per barrel for having his cider made. If he did not pay cash the "miller" took ills toll In cider or apples. The mills were of largo capa city, so that a thousand bushels of ap ples could be worked up in a day. As a rule, a tarmer could take his app'es to a mill, fix or eight miles from his place, have them ground and pressed, and return home with ins cider at night. There was 110 greater loss of time than in taking a tot of crn or wheat to a grist mill. During the past few years a large number of small mills for grinding apples and presses for squeezing the juice from them have been sold. Farmers who made not more than ten barrels oi cider per year bought them. These small mills are costly, liable to get out of ordei, not easy to manage by persons unacquain ted willi their use, aud certain to be ruined in a few years if they are not kept under cover. Old cider-makers declare that these small mills and pres ses are expensive to run, even if th y are obtained lor nothing. They state that only about three-fourths of the juice contained in the apples can be ob tained by their 'use, and that what is obtained is ot very inferior quality. The juice which is obtained by slight pressure is almost entirely water,while that which is rich remains in the pulp unless a very heavy pressure is cm ployed. It would seem to be very poor economy to Invest 111 a mill and press if one has but a small amount of apples to work up. The iutereston the money they cost would pay lor taking the ap ples to a mill and having tiie cider manufactured. One large cider mill is sufficient to work up all the apples raised iu a town, and it could do the work more economically than it could be done in a large number ot small concerns. If several farmers can not unite in erecting a suitable mile to be operated on the co-operative plan it would be better to pledge their patron age to some person who would erect and equip a good building- Experi ence and skill are required for making eider, and these are not likely to be ac quired by persons who make out a few uarrels of cider each year by the use of a poor apparatus. Cows UNDER THE WKATHKK. — Cows are very sensitive to the influence ol the weather. In bright clear days their vital forces are more active and vigorous, digestion is more rapid, and assimilation and waste are more active and secretions which, like butter, de pend upon the destruction of tissue, are more abundant. Lassitude is favor able to transudation, because it relaxes ihe delicate membranes ami makes the passage of liquids easier, and con sequently more abundant. Thus,while tlie lats iu milk diminish, the albumi noids Increase in muggy weather; and yet a given weight oi milk makes less cheese than in fair weather. This loss iu cheese is owing to the fact that as the albumen ot the blood parses over into the milk vessels, the major part of it is converted into caseiue, which is coagulable by rennet, while albumen is not. This change lrom albumen to caseine is effected by the vital forces, and is more or less complete as they vary in strength. The greater energy ot bright days increases the per cent of caseine, and makes that of albumen less, in muggy weather this is rever sed. These changes often amount to enough to make live percent, differ ence in the yield of cheese hi favor of good weather, while the total of albumi noids, as shown by analysis, is the greater in the muggy days. From the decrease in fat and the increase of al buminoids, which are heavier than fat, the milk of the muggy days shows the greater specitie gravity, and yields a less per cent of buuer. BUILDINGS MADE OK CONCRETE. —Few farmers know how to builu a concrete wall, yet it is a very simple job, and in I many cases would prove an excellent 1 wail lor buildings and cellars. To bulkl such a wall jou need to set 3x4 joists at the corners, then at intervals i ol about eight leet along the outside ot ; the wall, placing the joists opposite and about eighteen inches apart. On the inside of the joist set up planks about a foot wide. There will be fifteen inches between these planks, which will be the thickness of the wall. For a large building, which would have Heavy lloor timbers, the wall might be two feet thick; for a piggery or other small buildings it neeu not be so thick. Have a cement made by mixing a bar rel of good cement with three barrels i fine plastering sand and four bam Is of I clean gravel. Wet this when mixed | so it w ill be thin enough to pour, and fill between the planks about three inches deep, then in that pack small ! -.tones as closely as possible—the more | closely the stones pack the less cement l it will take. Then pour on more ce | ment and put in more stones, until your space is full. The work must be so planned as to use your cement and get the stones in it before it has time to I harden. For a heavy wall, planks may , be raised in twenty-four hours after ! the space is filled. Raise them about ten inches, and goon as before, lhave seen a large barn built in that way which has stood many years; costs about the same as timber wall when | built, and needs no paint, no shingles, i no repairs of any sort, while the walls are fire-proof and rat-proof. IT IS smart enough to tell a fellow to ; plow the land and sow corn and millet ! alter the army worm and after drouth, | or hail or frost, but what shall be done ! with the plowed and cropped land the year after? Luckily, farmers are the slowest mortals living in taking any body's advice. They know there own circumstances best. CUT FLOWERS. —in order to keep cut flowers trom fading, care should be taken not to put too many in the vase. Remove the water every morning, picking off' every decayed leaf, and cutting off the ends of the stems as soon as they show any symptoms of de cay.

A VALUABLE OI.UK. —Householders ami others will be glad to hear el' a very permanent glue—a chrome glue, which is made by an admixture with common glue ot one part of acid chro mate of lime in solution to five parts of gelatine. The glue made in this manner, after exposure, Is Insoluble in water, and can bo used for mending glass objects likely to be exposed to hot water. It can also be made available for waterproofing articles such as sail s or awnings, bat for flexible fabrics it is not suitable* A few immersions will be found sufficient to render the article Impervious to wet. It is necessary that fractured objects should ho exposed to the light after being mended, and thsii warm water will have no effect ou them, the eliminate of lime being better than the more generally used chruinate of potash.

RICE CHICKEN PlE.— Cover the bot tom of a pudding dish with slices of broiled ham: cut up a broiled chicken and nearly fill the dish ; pour In gravy or melted butter to fill the dish; add chopped onions, if you like, or a little curry powder, which is better; then add boiled rice to lilt all interstices and to cover the top thick. Bake it for one half or three-quarters of an hour. FIRE. — To avoid suffocation in a house on fire, steep a handkerchief or towel in water and tie it round the head, covering mouth and nostrils. In that condition a person will be in a position to breathe freely, and walk in the densest smoke to be met with in a burning building. To SOFTEN HARD WATER FOR ABLIT TIONARY PURPOSES.—A tablespoonful of powdered borax to a quart of water is sufficient for the purpose. We have it in constant use at home and else where when required.

'•EDITOR, Telegraph and Messenger, Macon. Ua." A Philadelphia Inventor has taken a step forward in the warfare against sewer gas which promises to be valu able. He has added a mercury seal to the ordinary water trap connected with drain pipes of all kinds. The outlet pipe has a trough around It charged with quicksilver. A cap llts snugly over tiie pipe, and is surrounded by flanges which dip into the mercury, and thus form a tight seal. The cap is so attached to the water closet or basin that, t>3 f lifting the lid, it is drawn into a side chamber and allows free egress of the contents. By the same movement of shutting down the lid the cap is re placed over the outlet pipe, and its flange submerged in the mercury, while below the mercury seal the ordinary water trap is placed, having an outlet for the ventilating pipe, winch can be carried to the chimney flue or roof, as convenient. Thus a double door is raised against the admission of deleteri ous gases into the building.

Stearic acid is the fat ty matter employed, and, upon being melted, is poured into the petroleum, in the proportion of about tlfteeti parts of the fatty acid to 100 of petroleum. Alter thorough intermixture has been effected by stirring, the combination may be saponified in the usual way. It is recommended, however, that animal or vegetable fatty matter may be added before saponification, so as to secure an improved product—the proportions in this case being two of acidified petrole um to three of fat. Kither soda or pot ash may be used in saponilying, the hardness or softness depending on the kind and proportions of alkali used. DOBBINR' Klectric Soap, (made by ( rag in A Co.

Morgan, of New Castle, Lincoln Co., Maine, says. 44 Five years ago I was a dreadful sufferer from uterine troubles. Having exhausted tiie skill of three physicians, I was completely discouraged, and so weak I could with difficulty cross the room alone. I began taking your 4 Favorite Prescription' and using the local treatment recommended in your' Common Sense Medical Adviser.' I commenced to Improve at once. In three months 1 was perfectly cured, and have had no trouble since. I wrote a letter to my family paper, briefly mentioning how my health had beeu restored, ami offering to send the full particulars to any one writing me for them and encloeino a stamped envelope for reply. I have received over four Hundred letters. In reply, I have descrilieo my case and the treatment used, anil earnestlv advised them to 'do likewise.' From a great many 1 have received second letters of thanks, stating that they had commenced the use ©f Favorite Prescrip tion, sent for the 'Medical Adviser,' and applied the local treatment so fully and plainly laid down therein, and were much better already."
