HOUSEHOLD TALES. BY AC XT IUTTIE. Roasting meat. Many persons seem to suppose that it is an indifferent matter wheth er meat is cooked for a short or long time, provided oniy that it is cooked enough. I hare often seen them place the meat for din ner in the oven as early as nine o'clock, mak ing no distinction between beef, mutton, lamb, pork, chicken, goose, or duck, or three pounds, seven, or fiftt en. Tie y rightly con sider that it is not necessary to watch, for a generous supply of water in the pan effectu ally prevents its burning. Mow. there i- us much difference between a piece of well cooked or badly cooked meat, as between a loaf of good bread or bad bread, ami perhaps more Meat of mature and by mature I do not mean old) animals, such as beef and mut ton. requires less time to cook than meat from immature animals, such as lamb and veal, which needs thorough cooking. The reverse is the case with poultry: all young poultry, such ts spring chickens, young ducks, and green geese, take far less time than tough old fellows that can stand any amount of lire. Pork should always be well done. lhese few hints I throw out a3 a sort of key to the methods of roasting that I am about to give you. Another thing, mature meat should never be put into the oven until the latter is very hot, in order that the intense heat may quickly sear or shrivel the surface of the meat, which will prevent the juice from escaping. Never stick a fork or a skewer in to a joint of meat while it is cooking, as the gravy will ooze cut. It is obviou- .he: where water is put into the pan, this quit. scaring of the surface cannot be'effccied. I think if advocates for water as an element in roasting would consider that it cannot be raised above a certain temperature, (its boiling point.) and that fat is susceptible of n much greater de gree of heat, their scrurdes against grease as a roasting agent would be removed. Roasting Beef. —Apiece of beef to roast for my table must come from the sirloin or first or second cnt. The third cut is near the shoulder, and is not as good as the ethers. A small portion ot the shoulder-blade is taken with the third cu!, which the batcher removes, and in its place neatly inserts a piece of fat, thereby deceiving the uninitiated: but it makes a poor roast. Epicures require that beef and mutton should be cooked rare. There is a great diffetcnce between raw and rare meat; raw meat inside of a roast will have a dark purplish color, while rare meat is of a delicate crimson. The plates should be very warm when rare meat is served. Allow no flour or fat in the gravy. Carrots chopped fine, turnips inasbed. ar d whole potatoes and cabbage, are excellent with roast beef I never mash potatoes for hot roast beef or mut ton. Roast Veal.—A loin of veal should be thor oughly cooked; a large piece will require three hours in :i moderate oven. I should not pat water in the t an for veal: a few slices of salt pork placed upon the top will improve the flavor, and will also serve to moisten or baste it. I illet or Ito?.—This is cut front the thick part oi the leg. Insert into the opening a stuffing made of crumbs of bread seasoned with summer savory, pepper and salt, and a little lemon juice, if convenient; tie around with a tring, making the piece the shape of a small cheese. Never use rage or onions with delicate meat like veal. Roast thor oughly; make a brown gravy by adding flour and water to the exuded ;uiee in the pan: serve with slices of lenton, and fried or boiled Tork. The loin should be served also with pork and lemon, and flour should always be added to the gravy. Lamb should lie thoroughly cooked, but will require less time than veal or pork: when o: a fine brown on all sides, yon may conclude that it is done. Nerve with mint sauee, made as follows: To one dozen leaves of spearmint chopped to a pulp, add two tablerpoonsful of sugar and a half teacu>- of sharp vinegar. Lamb aud green peas is the rule, but anv vegetable nicely served will be acceptable. Meat for Children. —Many persons consid er meat injurious to children, but I allow my children a little beef or mufn whenever we have it for dinner, which is about f utr limes a week: even the baby must have a piece a large as a finger, from which he pretty effect ually extracts t,e juice. While 1 consider that meat in moderate quantities gives tone and vigor u> the coustitutl n. its indiscrimi nate use by children sLonld be forbidden. My mother always gave her children milk and bread for breakfast, and bread and butter for tea. I reverse that order, giving them a few warmed up potatoes, and bread and butter for breakfast, with a bowl of milk and bread for supper. They are at table at breakfast and dinner, but not for tea. leaf Pie. Take a deep baking dish, and place tome small pieces of veal in it, allowing any little bones to remain. The neck pieces may be used if desired. Nearly cover with wafer, and sprinkle with salt and pepper, ad ding little bits of butter. Cover with a paste, and bake. \\ hen the crust is done, open the oven door and let the pie remain art hour or more, to cook the meat. Is delicious ear. ;, cold. Minced Veal or If ash.—Take any cold veal which may be left from the roast, and cut up into very small pieces, but do not chop: cover with a water, adding a little pepper, salt and butter; bncg to a boil, and thicken with a teaipoonful of flour. Toast a few slices of bread freed from crust, butter and place them around the dish, and pourthc mince cicely in tac centre. It is a most acceptable di-l:.— American Agriculturist. WHEN TO Brr A FARM. -Very few persons ! seem to know that the months of June and July are the best in ii.e year in which to look or the purchase of a farm. At this season I one can judge whether the land can or does: produce good crops, for if it is rich, the wav -1 grass and grain will be oenlar demonstra tions of the fact: and if there is, according to the stereotyped assertion, an abundance of 1 choice fruit, it can be seen at this time to the ! be-f advantage. The low land-: will show ' whether they are really dry enough for pas tures m summer, and the upland its capacity •or withstanding a draught. It there are any mosquitoes about :hey will usually make their presence known a: this time it ever, and bv observing the children in the neighborhood one can readily determine whether the local ity is a healthy one or otherwise, bummer is also a very good time to view the never failing sprmg and the trout pond near by, and a draught from the one and a lunch from the er a.c attraetioEs which those who possess i e.it seldom fail to bestow upon those who •re likely to become purchasers. Even the weeds upon a farm will waist a mau in deter mining Rs value, for if nothing but stunted ragweed and fivefi ng e r 3re to be seen, then he land may be set down as pocr indeed: but H burdocks and catnip abound it shows atrength to produce crops of higher order - he pasture and meadow, orchard and <rar exnected of H, W "iF are and wbal be expected o, thsm n, these months: but curlier or later th. aspect of thing, may change In i" I'™B 1 '™ 8 the trees have not ah own lea vea, tiowars, or fruit; the road .are mitddv, if ever and the distance from the railroad station to the farm appears to be much greater than it actua.lyis, especially to a stranger. In au tumn the leaves are turning yellow, the gram has been gathered, and the dry stubble is all that remain®, and the fruit® are nearly gone: •'id 'he air is fresh, and the landscape glow ing with autumn tints: bnt the valuable prop erties of a farm, which are its products, are mainly out of sight, being stored in the barn, or in the proprietor's pocket. MANY a fool who has had sense enough to get a good wife, lacks wit to know it. To make a window blind—Fill it with bricks and mortar. ARTEMCS WARD said that the man who wrote 'Tm saddest when I sing," was a fool to sing much.

A I.ADY teacher was endeavoring to impress upon her pupils the terrible effect of the punisbmr-ut of Nebuchadnezzar, saving, •seven years he ate grass like a cow," when a b y asked : "did he give milk ?" EAR MARKS.—A lawyer onec asked a -Dutchman • ncerning a pig "in court." "What ear-marks had he?" "Veil, ven I first became acquainted mit de hock, he hab no ear-marks except a bery short tail." Ax Irishman, noticing a woman pass along the :-tree!. spied two strips pending from u; *er the lady 's cloak. Not knowing that tfcc.-e were styled sashes, and were hanging in the right place, he exclaimed, "Faith, ma'am, your gatlasses arc untied." "HOT, fortunate I am in meeting a 'rain !>f 'in thl- storm," said a young lady who was c- :ght it: a shower the other day, to her be3u of promise, who happened to come along with an umbrella. "And I,"said he, gallautly, "ant as much rejoiced as the poor L ;dander when he has caught a 'rein deer." A I.ADY in Bangor, Maine, huug her hoop skirl on a nail in her chamber, and a mem ber of her household, while exploring the premises, was o unfortunate as to get hie head eugfct therein, and being unable to ex tricate himself, soon expired. The name of the victim was Thomas Cat. TUT PALINDROME. —The palindrome is a line that reads alike backward and for ward. One of the best is Adam's first ob servation to Eve: "Madam, I'm Adam!" Another is the story that Napoleon, when at St. Helena, being asked by an English man if he could have sacked Loudon, re plied: "Able was I ere 1 saw Elba." The latter is the best palindrome, proba bly, in the language. A BROTHER being injured by another, came to Abbot Sidonius, told his story, and said "1 wish to avenge myself, father." The abbott begged him to leave vengence to God; but when he refused, said, "Then let us pray." Whereon the old matt rose, and said. "God. Thou art not necessary to us any longer, that thou shouldest be careful of us : for we, as this brother says, both will and can avenge ourselves." At which that brother fell at his feet and begged pardon, promising nevct to strive with his enemy. A well known physician of Burlington, Yt., driving into town on election morning, was met by a friend, who hailed htm with the ques tion if he had voted. "Not yet," said the doctor; but I have bt en out all night after a voter. I got him too." 'When will he vote?" "Oh. about twenty-one years from now." "Ah —I see. Not bad. Well, look after him, at.-' see that be votes right." "No tear. He can't go wrong with the name he's got. Ills father is a Democrat, but when I told him he had got a boy. and asked htm what he would name him, he said: 'Ulysses Grant, by thornier.' So be 11 do." JOSH BN. LINGS. —Ifa man wants tu get at hi., aktua! dimensions, let him visit a grave yard. If any man tracts to be an old bachelor, and get sick at a boarding tavern, aud have a l ack room on the Ith story, and a red haired eha.n! er-maid bring his watergruel to him in a ;.-h basin, I havealwus sed, and I stick to it yet, he has a perfeck right to do it. When a man loses his health, then he fust begins to take care of it. This is good judg ment. This is 1 It getting nowadaz'-, that if a man can't cheat in on:-, way he isn't happy. Success in life iz apt to make us forget the time when we wasn't much. It is so with the frog on the jump; he cant remember when he was a tadpole—but other folks can. ADVANTAGE or BEING Boon.— A poor man never has any taxes to pay. He can sit down and laugh the assessors to scorn, and read off the big appropriations made by councils with a feeling of inuiseribable exhilaration. A poor man cau enjoy life. He lives in a rented house, audit needn't worry him to see it abused, and his equanimity need not be dis turbed it it burns down. A poor man can repose in the bosom of his family and know that there is no avaricious young man prowling around after any rich daughters. m Nobody wants the poor matt to die; nobody is laying around in misery and impatience waiting for him to die: so as to absorb his funds. Another thing—uo poor man is ever wor ried liy debt. for nobody will ever trust him, and when he does see a greenback he heartily enjoys it. Is Wisconsin, an Indian woman died recently at the age of one hundred and twenty-three. She left a son who is ninety seven years old. The above "reminds us of a little story" lately narrated in our hearing, of a gen tleman, who, in the course of his travles in the West, one day emerged from a neck of timber, and suddenly descried a coun try tavern, upon the porch of which, sat one of the oldest, white-haired men he had ever seen, and crying like a child. In answer to au inquiry as to the cause of his trouble he sobbed, out that "his father had just iicked him." Upon entering the bar room, the traveler discovered another and much older man, behind the bar, whom he addressed: You seem to haTe some trouble here stranger: your son informs me that you have whipped him." "Yes," rejoined the landlord, excitedly, "I could not avoid it—the young rascal was chas ing his grandfather round a ten-acre lot, and stoning him. I had to interfere stranger. tKedirinal WHY ENDURE A LIVING"DEATH? The confirmed dyspeptic may almost say with St. Peter, "I die daily."

THE GREAT DESIDERATUM of the AGE! A dressing which is at once agreeable, healthy, and effectual for preserving the Hair. Faded or gray hair il soon restored to its original color and the gloss and freshness tf youth. Thin hair is thickened, failing hair checked, and baldness of ten, though not always, cured Dy its use. Noth ing can restore the hair where the fallicies are destroyed, or the glands atrophied and decayed. But such as remain can be saved for usefulness by this application. Instead of fouling the hair with a pasty sediment, it will keep it clean vigorous. Its occasional use will prevent thehair from turning gray or failing off, and consequently prevent baldness. Free from those delete-ieas substances which make some preparations dan gerous and injurious to the hair, the Vigor oaa only benefit but not harm it. If wanted mere for a HAIR DRESSING, nothing else can be found so desirable. Contain ing neither oil nor dye, it does not soil white cambric, and yet lasts longer on the hair, givin it a rich glossy lustre and a grateful perfume. Prepared by. DR. J. C.
