At dlitirent times we have tried some of the d(ifferent breeds offowls, and have flinally settled upoIln the Light Brahn:as as being pre emilently the fowl for protit. SILVER SPIANGLED IIAMIURGS.-IVC first tried this breed, and like them. They are the hantlsomest breed with which we are acquainted, and, to those with whom profit is a secondary consideration, we eatn wartly recomtend themii. With us they proved to le great layers of very small eggs ; three weighing about as much as two Bra:lhni eggs. There icutketts were very hard to raise: not more h one-hilf of of all hatchetd would live to maturity. Still, with all their faults, we thought Iheri much superior to the so-called "dung-hill fowls," which we had previously kept BLACK SrANISII.-WVe found these fowls to be good layers in the spring months, but poor winter layers. Their eggs, though not; as large as the Braihnms, are of good size. One great fault of the Spanish is, that their combs are so large, that unless warldy housed they will get frost-bitten ; antd after their combs are once frozen they never look handsome again. 'They are very suseepl)tible to disease; and withal are not as desirable as the II:lauurgs. So we discartded them. BtvF CocIuxs.-We purchased a trio of Buff Cochius of a friend, who highly recomn iiended them, but we did not like them. They a;re not as good layers as the liamt burgs, though their eggso are larger. They can ily much higher th:,u the Bralunas can, and not is docile ; at least, such has been our experience. IIGIIT BRAIMIAS.-At first we did not think we should like them, as a busy-body had tolt us that they were inveterate setters. •"Why," said he, "they will sit on a cart wheel if they can find nothing else." This, however, is not the case; for ifthey are taken in hand immnediately when they first become broody, they can be broken up in from two to four ((lays. The Bralmnas are great winter layers ; anid winter laying is what pays iln poul' try-keeping. Their eggs are large; I weighed some of their eggs of the average size, a f.ew days since, and found that they weighed at the rate of seven eggs to the pound, lacking one ounce. The chickens are temarkably hardy; searcely ever loose one. Our Brahmnas are so tame that we can pick them up in the yard, or take the eggs from utnder theimt while they are on the inest. We keep the Bralhmas confined with a four-foot lath fence. WHITE LEGIHORN.-Sinc we e have kept Bralunas we have tried the Leghorns. They are first-rate Ivyers, ald their eggs are of good size. We have not kept them long cnough, or in sufficient numbers, to pass correct judgment upon them; but, from present appearances, we think they may prove a rival to the Bralhnas as far as egg production is concerned. From the above facts, we have come to the conclusion that when both eggs and chickens are wanted, the Brahmlas will give better satisfaction than any other of the above-mentioned breeds of fowls. We do not feed our chickens hard-boiled eggs for the first few days, as some recommended; that would hardly pay in this vicinity, with eggs at twenty-five cents per dozen in the spring months and fifty cents per dozen in the winter. We fed the chickens Indian meal, wheat screening, cracked corn, and small potatoes boiled and mashed. The chickens thrive upon such food; for this sea son we have raised 125 Light Brahmas and twenty-five Leghorns ; also about twenty-five half Brahma and half Leghorn chtckens,and have only lost two by disease.-Country Gen tleman. Ihow To HAVE WINTER EGGS, AND KERP THE POULTRY uP.-A pullet hatched early in the spring begins to lay at the approach of winter, and pullets hatched late in the summer begin to lay in the ensuing spring, and it is by saving a certain proportion of pullets from the early and late broods, that you make sure of winter eggs, a fIew early hatched chickens for catching thie higlest nmarkets, and a numerous flock of chickens in the warm months when rearing is less precarious. The lien continues in her prime for two, and at most, three years-therefore save every year pullets equal to a third of your brood stock, selling off at a trilling price the sa|me number of aged hens, or ofIer ing them upl in a stewed dish or well baked pie. However, I have no scruples about keeping a heavy, syummnctrically made, splen didly feathered "partlet," fir four years, for the sake of her stock. Many farmers grum ble about their poultry, from not paying at tention to such simple matters as their not looking over their brood stock once a year, drafting all the old dames (known by the developed scales on their legs), and reserving from the market ba:sk. . ce most promising young pullets raised during the sea:son.-E:m DOMESTIC ECONOMY. W1ASHING .OOLEN BLANKEITS.-FOr two or three blankets take one pint of soft soup, two tablespoo(nsful of powdlered horux and (lissolve ill boiling water. Add the solution to altub half 1illed with cold water and large enough to contain the blankets; let them stand entirely coverd by tl;e solution from twelve to twenty-four hours, then squeeze and rub thoroughly, but o nt (10 \ot wring them; puiit in a basket over a tub land let them drain. Rinse in cold water and drain twice, thlen rinse in llue water, drain and hang up to dry. Be puare to use cold water a:ld rnot wring during the p)roces, tlen the 1:ankets will not shrink up, but will dry white and slmooth. How To CLEAN LAMP C(I.1N1;EYs.-Most people in clearinig lamp chimneys. use either a brush made of bristles twisted into a wire, or a rangon the point of scissors. Bot of thes e are bad ; without great ('·re, thle wire, or scissors will scratch the glass as a di'umond doesh,whliclh, uder the csxpanive power of heat soon breaks, as all scratched glass will. If you want a neat, little thing tl;at costs nothing, and will save half your glass, tie a piece of soft, sponge the size of your chim ney to a pine stick. ToMATro V INEGA(;A-Tnke a bushel of ripe tomatoes, wash them in open tub, and add one quart of molasses that weighs eleven potnds to the gallon, and thoroughly mix the whole together, in which condition let the tub stand several days, not neglecting to frequently stir the mixture in it. When a decided vinegar odor is given off; tle juice should be strained from the ponmace and put into casks and let stand until the process is completed. Vinegar thus made is equal to the best, and to succeed in its manulhicture onl:y requires iaithlfully following out these directions. IIoP YEAST.--Boil half pint of hops in two quarts of water till the strength is extracted. Rub halfa pint of flour smooth with cold water, strain the tea and mix it in ; let it cook slowly like mush from five to ten min utes. Let it cool, then add a gill of yeast and two nicely mashed boiled potatoes, and put it in a stone jug or bottle to rise. A tin coffee pot should be kept to boil hops in, as the bitter taste is hard to remove from a kettle. CURE FOR RING BONE.--MiX well 11 drams of biniodione of mercury with one ounce of lard. Rub this ointment well into the skin daily over the lumps, first shaving off the hair. Two hours after each applica tion paint the blisters (with a soft brush) with tincture of arnica 1 ounce, to water 12 ounces. Do this daily for a week, then omit a week, and then repeat. This will generally cure recent cases, so that they will show no lame ness, but the lumps will remain. The colt should be kept tied so that he cannot bite the blisters. No remedy will remove the lumps. A horse has been captured in McLean Co, Ky., which, upon examination, was found to be entirely destitute of hair. In color he was a glossy black. The skin is smooth and soft as velvet, and so clean that a lady can rub him without soiling the most delicate pair of' kids.
