FARM AND GARDEN.
CASES CF HORSE COLIC.— The horse's stomach is too small to contain a good feed and the gas extricated from such materials when digestion is prevented by immediate severe %oork after eating, cr otherwise, and where fermentation has set in. Even a cow will die in - half an hour from a sudden extrica tion of gases in the paunch, which is capable of holding about 250 quarts. How much more, then, may the horse, whose stomach will hold but from 10 to 20 quarts. The cow cap sometimes relieve herself by eructation or vomit ing, or may be promptly cured by puncturing the 'eft flank and lcttting out the gas. But the average healthy horse can neither belch gas nor vomit, and to puncture his stomach you must first transfix the larger intestines, abovq and beyond which it lies. Again, medicines given to tbe horse in such circumstances are exceedingly uncertain. Even healthy stomach of the horse does not absorb, much less that which is distended beyoßd measure with gas. anything, there fore, which is into uc-ed into the stomach, must be passed through into the intestines before in can enter the circulation. But here, again is the obstacle of au overstretched and in active stomach, unable to contract on its contents, or loree them ou into the bowels. Again, the introduction ol agents into the stomach still further distends it and at first aggravates the symptoms. Such a case cf acute in dige.-tion and tympany of the stomach, as might be expected, is one ot the hopeless and fatal disorders of the hor<e. Yet as delay is usually equal to death, early ventures at treatment give the ouly hope. Give by the mouth 1 ounce tincture ot ginger, 30 drops oil of peppermint, one-hail ounce aqua ammonia, and one scruple tincture of nux vomica in a pint ol cold water. The same may be given as an injection into the rectum, the water being increased to two quarts. In the absence ot tlnse, give whatever stimulant couies to hand—a pint oi whiskey, gin or brandy, or one-hall ounce pepper, with a jint of lime-wa ter, or even a .easpoonful of baking soda and another ot carbolic acid. Gentle walking exercise may be given, with active rubbing of the abdomen with straw wisps, and half an houi after the medicated injection, injec tions of soapsuds to me amount ol four quarts in each. Six drachms o. aloes may also be given by the mouth, if recovery ensues, the food should be limited in qu&utiiy, ar.d of a qualit) easily dlgeottd, IOA a week, and ten grains of nux vounea and oue-haii ounce ground gentian may be given daily lor ihe same length of time. In a case of colic arising irom a full drii r of cold watt v followed by an active ? UH, the prospects are tar better, llcie the sufieriug will usually be at once re lieved by a stimulant and anodyne, and as the disturbance is mainly in the intestines, this may be introduced into ihe stomach with hope of in speedily passing tLrough and being absoi bed ; one-naif oui oc tii c.ure oi ginger and one ounce laudanum will usually si tike. Should there be no relief in hail au hour it may be re peated as an ii jection, and at the same iiuieadoseol laxative medicine uiu} be given oy the mouth. Five drachms aloes and oue dracnoi powdered gen tian made into a bail with syrup, will uualiy si.tiice, and reliei may bt calculated on in three hours at iht utmost. Sait and water, about which oue corie&pondent asks, is a very un satisfactory dose, being irritating to the mucous membrane when too con centrated, and not at all calculated to carry oil irritating materials iroin the stomach and bowels, its main valut is in retarding lermentation in the contents, but this is better effected bj saaaratus, ammonia, hyposulphite oi soda, or carbolic acid. GYPSUM AND HOW TO APPLY IT. — Gjp urn, sulphate of lime, Is not strict ly a fertilizer, yet it sets directiy upon the plant and indirectly upon the soil as a fertil When sown upou growirg croj i especially clover and the grasses, it attracts and gathers the ammonia of the atmosphere, and fixes it upon vegetation, deliquescing upon the leaves and syeirs, so that it is taken up into the circulation. This ammonia not only serves as one of the nutrithe elements of crops, but is carried by the circulation down into the roets and acts as a fertilizer in alter years. It does not benefit the crops upon all soils, for Instance, it lias not been found beneficial to crops in tne tide water district of Virginia, as well as other localities. When clover, grasses and other crops, are two or thi es Inches high, and the dews are heavy, sow the Gypsum on the growing plans when heavily laden with dew before evaporation takes place in the morning. The plaster adheres to the green crops, forming a sort of mucilage, attractlrg the ammonia, and fixing it in the plants. One bushel, or less quantity will si flice for an acre, and do ju-t as well as a large quantity. Its influence is felt and seen, upon the crops in a few weeks after being sown. It is gooo for all garden vegetables and vines, and dusted upon them frequently, will drive away iusecte. A F RENCH papi r relates the follow ing experiment: A cow was milked three tunes a day for eleven days, and yielded 170 quarts of milk. With two milkings daily she gave only 14G q uari s in the same number of days. Analy ses, moreover, showed that the uiiik in the first case was richer in butter globules by more than one-seventh than in the second case. FOR WORMS IN HOGS. —Give a tea spoonful of copperas to each six months or over; give half the dos-e to younger animals. Give by mixing with mush inane of chopped strain. It is maintained by Prof. E. Wool ney that soil heaped up around plants } as c ur'i g a flay, a higbter tempera ture than earth so treated. During the night tlie hi ltd earth becomes c* lder. The explanation advanced is that < arth wh ch is he* ped up around plants dries much more rapidly than level soil. From the success wnicti has already attended the introduction of electric clocks, and their evident uiility for railroad, postoffice, and telegraphic offices, Dr. M. Hipp predicts that in a few years every town of any impor tance will have its time regulated by electricity, just as it has its light by rl jht supplied by means of iMuminat ng gas. The re searches of .Professor Quincke indicate that the change of volume of solid and liquid bodies under electrical influence is not due to h<a, for the change produced in volume ot fatty oils is one of contraction. The same in vestigator has shown that electricity d minishes the electric.ty of flint and German g'ass, which is also said lo he tne case with India rubber, while elasticity of mica and per ha is increased. DOMESTIC. PUFF PASTE. —To ever pound of tbe best flour allow a pound of fresn but ter. Sift the flour in a deep pan, and then wash the butter through two oold waters, squeezing out all the salt. Make It up with your hands Into a round ball, and put in the lee until you are ready to use It. Then cut the butter into four equal parts. Put one piece of the butter Into the pan of flour and cut It up with a knife, adding a little very eold water; make It Into a stiff dough. Cut your remaining three pieces of butter Into nine parts, each piece into three. Sprinkle flour on the pasteboard, take the dough from the pan by lilting it out with the knife, flour your rolling-pin, roll out the paste in a large thin sheet, put allovt r it one of the six pieces divided into small bits, fold up the sheet of paste, flour it, roll it out again, and add in the same manner another portion of the butter. Hi 1 peat this process till the butter is all in. Fold up the sheet ol paste, flour it, and lay it on a plate In a eool place. Divide it into as many pieces as you want sheets of pas'e; roll out each sheet and put them on buttered plates, or patty-pans. Al ways roll the rolllng-pln from you. Have your oven moderately hot; iot too hot uor yet too cold, but rather quick than slow. If your oven burns, put a piece ot buttered paper over the paste. No air must be admitted to it while baking. Notch the edges with a pen knife before it is baked, and dip the knife into flour if it becomes sticky. These notches should be small and regular, or you may form the edge iuto leaves with the little tin cutters made for the purpos . It should be eaten the day it is baked. FIREPLACE CURTAINS. They are often only half a yard wide, and Just long enough to touch the floor, but then again rep ones with a worsted worked border are much fuller. For stamped velveteen we should say from :, 4 yd. to 1 yd., according to the sizeot tne mantel-piece, would be enough. Dark blue, outlined with gold, will be very handsome; the mantel border should be about 6 in. or 8 in., but it is impossible for us to say decidedly the best proportions for such things when wo are ignorant of the dimen sions ot the room, or even of the lire place. Mentel shelves now never have the vallance put on separately troui the top; it is ail one, and only the corner are shaped out by a seam IOUI d the mantel ends. Fringes are out ol lashioii in a great measure, and, as ol ten as not, the border is only hem med up underneath, or a cord laid along it. Chenille eord, or ordinary chenille like that put round glass oi nament shades, olteu looks better tin u silk cords on velvet. LFS MONDES gives the following old recipe lor testing the age of eggs, which, it thinks, seems to have been forgotten. As nature thinks so too, we may reproduce the recipe for our younger readers, and also as having other possible applications. Dissolve 120 grammes of common salt in a liter of water. An egg put in this solution oil the day it is laid will sink to the bottom; au egg three days old will swim in the liquid; while one more than three days old will swim on the suriace. THE FACE. —To wash properly, fill the basin two-thirds fnll with fresh soft water, dip face Into the water and then the hands; soap the hands well aud rub to a gentle friction over the face, dip the lace in the water the sec ond time and rinse off thoroughly, wiping with a thick but soft towel. Pure soaps do not irritate the skin. The best are castile, curd, glycerine and other neutral soaps. Medicated or highly colored or perfumed soaps should never be used. FLAVORING FOR -CIGAR MAKERS. — Two ounces of tonqua beans, one ounce of cinnamon; pulverize them to a powder and put them into a pint of good alcohol; shake occasionally for three days, then mix with a gallon of water, adding one and a half ounces of powdered alum and two ounces of juice of the herb lovage; stir all well together. Sprinkle your inferior to bacco, and dry it out of the sun, and the flavor will be unequaled. SHOULDER OF LAMB.SIVFFED. —Take the blade bone out of the shoulder ol iamb, then fill up the place with force meat, and sew it up. Put into a stew pan a few sbces ol fat bacon, a bunch of savory herbs, two onions and. a quart of good stock; then put in the shoulder and stew very gently for rath* r ILOI e than two hours. Glaze and serve with peas, stewed cucumbers, or sorrel sauce. THE following process is recommend ed for cleaning white Shetland shawls. Put the soiled article into a large bowl; throw over it half a teacupful of flour, "dry,*" rub thoroughly, as if WJ shing, then thoroughly shake out the fiour. If the article is not clean repeat the process *n clean flour. Ar ticles cleaned by this process will re tain a new look as long as there is a thread left. LJPS or hands chapped by cold weather or wind, should be rubbed with glycerine generally when shout IO be exposed to the air,or rubbed with honey alter washing. Never kiss the lips of persons not in he alth, asdiseaie is sometimes contracted in this way.as ,vell as by the use of towels, cups or tumblers used by unhealthy persons. WHITE HARD VARNlSH.— Dissolve gumanimein nut oil, boil it gei tlv as the gum is added, giving it as much gum as the oil will take up, and while cooling dilute it with pure turpentine; ih s will do lor the ground, as also for the japaning for white; it taken toine liine to harden but it is durable. SHAD STEWED. —Melt a piece of but ter. stir in fiour and mix with nilik and water flavoring with salr, pepper aud mace. Add a few pieces of lemon place the shad in pieces in this sauce and stew it gently for half an hour. Steam new potatoes with it. HANGING floral decorations In pots or baskets should be placed where they can have an abundance ol light and sunshine, and not near the stoves or register. If the light comes from one side, the basket ought to be turned every day. To RIMOVK SUNBURN. — Sciape a cake of brown Windsor soap to a pow der, and one ounce each of eau de Colo gne and lemon juice; mix well and form into cakes. This removes tan, prevents hands from chapping, and makes the skin soft and clean. WIT AND HUMOR. SAKE AGENT NO. I had just taken his have., lie had told a most wouderful circumstance about the kind of safe he was agent for, which was as follows, and related to safe agent No, 2 : "Sir," says the poor lellow who hst Ills sa e in the large lire, "there ain't any use of j our talking safe to me. lam c 11- vineed that the man who jut left here Is the man to buy of. Why, lie sold a sate in New York city to a produce merchant who had as a pot a little bantam rooster, and this Utile rooster got into that safe and the sate was heked up. That night the building burned, ami it was a terrible hot lire. In a few days, when t'.ey were ab'o to get at the safe and open It, what d# you think?" "Well, I suppose,'' said the safe agent, "that the little rooster was cooked." "No, sir; that little rooster came out and crowed." "Well, now, says Hate pgont No. 2, "that puts me in mind of a safe 1 sold to a man In Philiadelphia. He had a little dog, ami the dog got locked up in tlio safe, and the building look tire. The outside of the safe was red-hot,hut they went to work and opened the sae; the comb nation worked to a charir,aful what do you think?" "Well, 1 suppose that little dog came out and barked." "Barked? No, sir; not a bark. That dog was frozen stiff!" These sale a, eats are queer felilow , to say the least. |Bt Louis CI lobe-Democrat. J A War ltello. In a very full report recently pub lished in the Philadelphia Ledger, re ference is made to the case ol Mr. George I.Graham, a prominent poll ticlan and active journalist, (connected with the Philedelphia Sunday Mirror), who, by us'ng tlie great German remedy, St. Jacob's Oil, was cured ot a troublesome ease of rheumatism, contracted during Hie war. He closes his statement with—"to those who are afflicted with that complaint, it is worth its weight in gold." A VERY high-toned looking young man in an exquisite moustache, loud plaid clothes, red necktie, low-crown ed hat. straw-eolored kids, and knit ting-needle cane, walked Into a tobac co-shop, and throwing down a halt a dollar on the counter, said: "Well, this Is the worst town I ever saw; a i eut'eman can't get anything in it sa.ismcti ry, and 1 am utterly unable to 8 e how api rsvn of fastidious lasie c n nve here. I say, Mr. Shopkeeper, can you sell A geiuleuiau a decent cigar ?" "Yes, sir," said the cigar man meekly. "Weil, then, fly around lively aud do it. Don't you see that half dol lar ?" "Yes, sir. What kind of a cigar d yoti wish, sir?" "What kind?" "Yes, sir." "Why, look at me, sir, a moment, and see lor yourself ,w hat kind of a cigar would suit me;" and lio drew himself up grandly and gazed dov n oil the shopkeper. The shopkeeper looked, and then took in the hull dollar, got out a cigar handed it to the man with lorty-uiiie cents change, and said: "1 owe you nail a cent, sir, but 1 can't make the change unless you take another cigar." The nice man looked at the shop keeper, and then at the cigar, and then at himself, and without a single word niarcned out of the shop. [Ev&navillo Daily Courier.] A comforting conclusion is that which leads us always to choose the best, Mr. Andrew Ulmer, Blulffon, ind., says: I have thoroughly tested 6t. Jacob's Oil, and find for rheuma tism and neuralgia it has no equal. A MINISTER was soliciting aid to foreign missions, and applied to a g Hileman, who re'u el him, w tu the ieply, "1 don't believe in loreigu missions. 1 want what 1 give to bene fit my neighbors." "Well," replied he, "whom do you regard as your neighbors?" "Why, those around me." "Do you mean those whose land join yours?" inquired the minister. "Yes," "Well," said (he minister, "how much land do you own?" "Five hundred acres." "llow lar down do you own ?" "Why 1 never thought of it before, but 1 suppose 1 own about half way through." "Exactly," said the clergyman ; "1 suppose you do, and 1 want this money for the New Zealanders —the men whose land joins on the bottom."
