A FATAL MISTAKE.
HOW A BLUNDERING JUDGEMENT MAT BB RESPONSIBLE FOB TIIE MOST SERIOUS RESULTS, Mr. Edwin Booth said recently that he supposed his lungs were affected, having a persistent cough until lie saw Dr. Mackenzie, of London, who found that his symptom arose from a dis turbance of the liver. — JV. Y. Her ald. The above item, which has been going the rounds of the Press, is of no special significance other than to the persoual friends ot Mr. Booth, except that it brings to lighi a truth of the greatest importance to tli6 world. Few people pass through life without the affliction of a cough at some point in tfeeir career. In most cases this is considered the result oi a cold or the beginning of consumption, and thous ands have become terrified at this revela tion and have sought by a ch&uge of air and the use of cough medicines to avert the impending disaster. It may safely be said that more than half the coughs which are afflicting the world to-day do not have their origin in the lungs but are the result of more serious troubles in other organs of the body. " Liver coughs'' are exceedingly common and yet are almost wholly mis understood. Arising from a disordered state of the liver they show their results by congesting the lungs. In fact, the ef forts of the liver to throw off the disease, produce coughing even when the lungs themselves are in a healthy state. But it is a mistake to suppose that such delicate tissues as the lungs can long re main in a healthy condition when they are being constantly agitated by coughing, Such a theory would be absurd. Con sumption, which was feared at first, is certain to lake place unless something is done to check the cause. This must be plain to every thoughtful mind. It stands to reason, therefore, that the only way In which " liver coughs" can be removed is by restoring the liver to health, In this connection, another fact of great importance becomes known, which can best be explained by the relation of an actual event. Mr. W , a wealthy cat tle dealer of Colorado, became greatly re duced in health and came east to Chicago for the purpose of being cured. He con sulted Dr. J , one of the leading phy sicians of the country on pulmonic subjects aud began treatment for the cure of his lungs. But his cough increased while his strength decreased. Finally he determined to consult another physician aad applied to Dr. B . After a careful examination he was informed that his lungs was perfectly sound, while his kidneys were in a most terrible condition. He had all the appar ent symptoms of consumption but he was suffering from the terrible Bright's disease. The symptoms of consumption are often the sure indication of Bright's disease. The above truths regarding coughs have been known by the leading physicians for several years but the public have never been informed of them. They are serious facts, however, and should be understood by all, so that dangers which might other wise prove fatal may be avoided. They clearly prove one great truth which ts, that the kidneys and liter are such vital organs that their health should be constantly gurjded. The distressing, hacking cough, which is often dreaded as the forerunner of consumption and the was"ing strength which accompanies it, in all probability may arise from weakened or diseased kid neys or liver, to restore which would cause returning health. How this most desirable end may be attained has long been a problem, but few people of intelligence at the present day have longer any doubts that the popular remedy known as Warner's iSafe Kidney and Liver cure has done more to correct, relieve and restore these organs than any other preparation ever before known. There are hundreds of Instances which have occurred within the past three months where individuals have believed themselves the victims of consumption, when, in reality it was deranged kidneys and liver which this remarkable medicine has completely cured, as witness the fol lowing statement: BUFFALO, N. Y„ July 6, 1882.—1 be lieve it to be a fact that thousands of cases of so-called consumption can be success fully treated by simply using Warner's Bafe Kidney and Liyer cure as directed. 1 was one of the " given up to die" per sons—had every symptom ef the last stage of consumption —bad cough of four years standing, night sweats, chills, etc. etc. A season South did no good, and the fact was the case looked discouraging. I toon Warner's bafe Kidney and Liver Cure, and in three months I regained over tweDty pounds, and my health was fully restored. W. C. BEACH, Foreman Buffalo Rubber Type Foundry. 'lhere are thousands of people in Ameri ca to-day who believe they are the victims of consumption and destined to an early grave and who are trying to save them selves by the use of consumption cures but are growing worse each hour. Let all such persons 6top, and calmly consider whether they are not seeking to check a disease in the lnngs when it is located in the kidneys and liver. Let them then treat the disease in its original stronghold and* by the rem edy which has proven to be the most ef fective and theD look for the return of health and happiness which such treatment is sure to bring. IT is not generally known that boiled carrots, when properly prepared, form an excellent substitute for eggs in pad dings. They must, for this purpose, be boiled and masked, and passed through a coarse cloth or hair sieve strainer. The pnlp is then introduced amoDg the other ingredients of the pudding, to the total omission of eggs. A pudding made np in this way is much lighter than where eggs are nsed, and is much more palatable. HERMITS.— Two eggs, one and one half cups sugar, two-thirds cup butter or lard, one cup currants, one teaspoon eaoh of cloves, nutmeg and cinnamon, one teaspoon of soda. 801 l out like cookies. 801 l the currant* in flour to prevent their sinkiDg. Sprinkle sugar on top before baking. DARK CAXB. —Three eggs, two cups of sugar, one cup of butter, one cup of milk. If the milk is sour, leave out cream of tartar; one teaspoonful soda, two teaspoonfuls of cream of tartar; three and one-half cups of flour, one teaspoonful different spices, two cups of raisins, one of the cups chopped flne. GEMS.- One pint milk, two eggs, oue pinoh salt; floor enough to make a good batter; bake in little pans In hot oven. QUEEN'S UAXE.— One pound of flour, one pound of sugar, one pound of but ter, eight eggs. Beat separately; add essence of lemon. A Connecticut mechanic has made a trial of rotary files for finishing planed surfaces. He is of the opinion that quick er and truor work can be done with these than with hand files,and than that the sur face is in better shape for trueing with the scraper. His experiments have been con fined to the planer; but he believes that his device may be properly and economi cally adapted to the lathe and milling ma chine. , AGRICULTURE. PROPERTIES c* CHARCOAL. —As a top dressing for a meadow or a lawn it is ex cellent. It is so good an absorbent of moisture and grasses that it will keep a Jawn green in a drought when the undres sed flelds are brown and parched. As a basis for compost there is nothing superi or. Every good house wife knows that if she has auy tainted meat charcoal will take out its taints it anything can. A p'ece as big as one's fist put into the pot with boiling corned beet that has passed its prime will absorb the bail odors and re store it to sweetness if the putrefaction process lias not gone too far. In like man ner chaicoal acts in the compost heap. An effluvia even from a dead horse, will bo absorbed and stored up for the use of corn, grass or any crop to which it may be ap plied. As a top dressing lor grass or grain it is particularly beneficial, as when tbo rich gases have once been extracted it is in a position to absorb more from the dews, snows and rains. Ploughed under a thick sod its absorbing power is compar tively limited. We must not omit to mention the aerating effect which fine charcoal has on stiff clay land®. It renders them friable and permeable to air aud moisture—a result which can hardly bo overestimated. Muck has something of the same effect, but muck docs not last as does charcoal. Oo sandy lands charcoal does good, as it is such an absorbent of moisture that thin lauds dressed with it will remain fresh when the undressed are parched. The only place where charcoal seems to exert little or no ameliorating in fluence is on low, cold, wet lands, and here even stable manure has comparative ly little effect. UTILISE YOUR BONES. — bones of your own body, merely, but any and all bones, beef and mutton and chicken, aiul even tish bones. The American Garden says they constitute the very best food for fruit-trees and grape vines if the fragments are only placed where the roots can lay hold on them, aud adds: "Instead of al lowing pieces of bone to be cast into the back-yard, as food for stray dogs and strange cats, domestics should bo directed to deposit everything of the sort in a small tub provided witn a lid. As soon as a few pounds have accumulated we take the tub to some grape vine or fruit tree, dig a hole three or more feet long, a foot or two wide, and less than a toot deep,into which the bones ardumped; spread over the bot tom of the excavation, and cover with the soil. The more the fragments can be spread around, the better. But they should be buried so deep that a plow or spade wull not reach them. The roots of growing vines or fruit trees will soon find the valu* aoJe mine of rich fertility,and will feed on the elements that will greatly promote the growth of stroug and healthy wood and the development of fair and luscious fruit." CLEAN CIDIB BARRELS. —Cider makiDg is uow close at haud, and old barrels must have terome very mouldy anil whol'y un fit to use without a thorough fumigation. A scientific journal gives the following re ceipts for effecting this, which we hope may do. "To clean cider barrels, pour m lime water, and then insert a trace chain through the bung-hole, remembering to fasten a strong cord on the chain so as to pull it out again. Shake the barrel until all the mould, inside is rubbed off. Rinse with water, and finally pour in a little whisky." This is simple enough and would seem to meet the requirements. Really fine cider can Dot be expected when the barrels are not perfectly sweet and clean. But if any of our cider-makers have a bettor or other methods than this, we shall be pleased to find them; aud to be of use this season they should be communi cated at once. FATTENING SMALL FIGS. —Cora at sev enty cents a bueiiel is still the cheapest fat* tening food for pigs; but when corn is so dear it is best to study the most economical manner of feeding; corn in the ear boiied with small potatoes, will be worth twice as much dry as corn and raw ootatoes. la deed raw potatoes will scarcely do more than support life, and may often be inju rious, being indigestible ami drastic, in | their effects upon the Dowels. Corn-meal boiled to a thick mush and mixed with skim milk and fed when nearly cold, will make the cheapest pork. A bushel of coru fed in this way has made twenty-iour pounds of pors. Corn meal steeped in water is about as good as boiled whole corn and the latter is the cheaper of the two. 1 igs do not thrive well upon, warm teed, and they do better witb four light meals a day than with two heavy ones. A LADY, writing to an exchange, says: Never give up a choice but decaying rose bush till you have tried watering it two or three times with soot tea. Take soot from a chimney or stove with which wood is burned and make a tea of it. When cold, water the rosebush with it. When ail is used pour boiling water a second time on the soot. The shrub will quickly eend out thrifty shoots, the leaves will become large and thick and the blossoms will be larger and more richly tinted than before. To keep tbe plants ciear of insects syringe tnem with quassia tea. Quassia chips can ue obtained from the apothecaries. TURNIPS. —When turnips placed in the cellar begin to sprout they are usually thrown away, but a bushel of turnips will furnish a family withralad all winter, and very good one if properly prepared. Place the bushel of turnips in a dark, warm cel lar to sprout, and when the sprouts are three or four inches long cat them off, pick the leaves from the stems and pour on hot water a moment; place the sprouts in the colander to drain off all the water,and send to table with a plain dressing poured ever them. EVERY farmer who has to contend with stony land will thank us for saying that when the small ones are to he pick d (wo men with dung forks will do more work, and do its easier, than four w.ll with their hands. We got the idea from an exchange, and put it into practical execution the other day, to our own advantage and the great gratification of the men we put at the job. BPRUOE butter tuns are the best; while hemlock makes a sweet tub; acids from tbe oak color the butter and injure its appearance; white ash gives the batter a strong flavor if kept long and increases the liability to mould ; maple smells and cracks tadly. Soak all tubs four to six days in brine before using. GIVE fattening cattle as much as they will eat,and often—five times a day.Never give rapid changes of food, but change of ten. A good guide for a safe quantity of gram per day to maturing catt'eis 1 pound to every hundred of their weight; thus an animal weighing one thousand may receive ten pounds. OVER $8 000 000 worth of cotton-eeed meal is imported into threat Britain annu ally to feed cattle, and tne London Agri cultural Gazette styles it "the very best food imported, and by its use English gra zers can compete with the American." COMPCST —Compost heaps are in order now, and. in making them, remember that potash, nitrogen and phosphoric acid are great fertilizers. DOMESTIC. GUMBO, —Gumbo is the name of soap; Okra is the plant. Okra is cultivated in every vegetable gardeu In Texas. The tender pods are boiled and dressed with salt, pepper and butter, and always called Okra. Sonp, made by boiling beef, chicken, or dnok until ths meat will part from the bono, which is then chopped tine as for mince meat and put back into the soup, and young Okra pods cut up thin across the pod are put into the soup aud simmered for an hour, red and black pepper are added, ami when dono it is called "Gumbo," and persons accustomed to the dish are very fond of it. The Creoles often add Sas safras leavea cut tine to give the Gumbo a flavor and add to the mucilaginous qualities of the Gumbo. Okra is much used iu all soups with other vegetables. It should not be oooked in an iron ket tle, as it turns tbo Okra black. The test for Okra is to break the pod from the plant; if it will not break it has passed the edible state. Okra, Toma toes aud Grseu Corn, iu equal quantities, seasoned with butter, pepper and salt, and baked for two hours, is a favorite Southern dish.

WBARINO PtLANvmi,. —Put it on at once. Winter or summer, nothing bet ter oan be worn next to the skin than s loose, red, woole* flannel shirt; "loose." for it has room to move on the skin, thus causing a tit illation which draws the blood to ths surrace and keeps it there; and, when this is the case, no one can take oold; "red," for white fulls np, mats together and becomes stiff, heavy and impervious; "woolen," the product of a sheep and not of a gentle man of color, not of ootton wool, bscauss that merely absorbs the moisture from the surface, while woolen flannel conveys it from the skin and deposits it in drops on the outside of the shirt, from which ths ordinary ootton slnrt absorbs it, and, by its nearer exposure to the exterior air, it is soon dried without injury to the body. Having these properties, red woolen flannel is worn by sailors even in the midustnmer of the hottest coun tries. Wear a thinner material iu summer.

Put in salt and boil till they are quite done; drain off that water also, cover as tightly as possible, and set on the back of the range to steam, lifting the cover for an instant onor or twioe; then with one hand holding down the lid, shake the sancepan gently, quickly, and stead ily for a moment and serve your potatoes hoi. If rightly managed they will be like snowballs."

It is the perfection of the chemist's art, aad will, beyond a perad yenture, restore the hair on bald heads. To STRAIGHTHN WARPED BOAJU>S. — If the wood is m a large piece, the convex or hollow side should be steamed or moistened a little, and then laid on a dry floor, holding it down with a smooth, flat board, upon which weights are plaoed. When quite dry it will befouud to have regained its original shape. If the wood is in small pieces, it can be easily straightened by geutly steaming the convex side over a tea-ksttle, aud then holding the other side toward the heat until it becomes straight, when it can be left in a press or under weights for a few hours. Almost any warped woods will yield under this treatment. Yegetine.—For eradicating all impuri ties of the blood from the system, it has no equal. It has never failed to effect a cure, giving tone and strength to the sys tem debilitated by disease. SOOT TEA FOR Roeis, —Get some soot from a chimney or stove where wood is used for fuel, put into an old pitcher and pour hot water upon it. When c ol use it to water your plants every few days. When it is all used, fill up the pitcher with hot water. The effect up on plants, especia'ly upon rosss that have almost hopelessly deteriorated, is wonderful in procuring a growth of thrif ty shoots, with large thick leaves and a great number of richiy-tiuted roses. Never despair of a decayed roae bush until this has been tried. SPECIFIC FOR BRONCHITIS AND A STEM A. —Mr. G. A., ttala states that an unfail ing source of relief from the agonies of bronchitis and spasmodic asthma wiil be found in the following specific: The juice of 2 lemons, winch have been warmed in the oven to dry the siins, 4 ounces of the best honey, 2 spoonfuls of the very best Florence oil. Mix care fully, put in an earthen jar, which keep covered, and swallow a spoonful when you feel the fit coming on you. KEEPING FRUIT IN SAND.—A writer in the London Garden says that he keeps fruit in this way all the year round. He has had French crabs two years old. The Catillae pear has remained sound twelve months. The fruit must be sound when stored, and the sand must be (piite dty. The chief advantage* of packing in sand are, the exclusion of air currents, the preservation from changes of temperature, and the absorption of moisture which favors decay. Muoli will depend on the apartment in which the experiment is tried, a dry or cool one being best. A HOT lemonade is one of the best remedies for a cold, as it acts promptly and efficiently, and has no unpleasant after effects. One lemon should be properly squeezed, cut in slices, put with sugar and covered with half a pint of boiling water. Drink just before going to bed, and do not expose your self on the following day. The remedy will ward off; an attack of chills and fever if it is used promptly. HUMOROUS. Tin upper hold iu Nevada: "When ho said he bad lived in Nevada several years a man who looked some thing like a church deaoou skipped forward and naked: "My friend, is the Bible reboo ted in that State?" "Oh, yes." "Do they have churches?" "Plenty of "em." "And the Lord rules there as well as in New Jersey?" "Well, I don't know about that," was the doubtful answer, "When I bought mining stocks for twen ty per cent, of the'r faoe value and saw them jump to fifty above par I thought the Lord had a firm grip on tho State; but again, when 1 struck a silver mine worth millions in digging fish bait and •old the whole for a gallon of whiskey which burnt the soles off my boots, 1 iiad a dun suspicion that the devil and Nevada were partners in stocking the cards."
