WHY DO NOT OUK TEETH LAST 01 R LIFETIME! That they are made perfect, if the right materials are furnished, there cannot be a doubt. But are the necessary elements famished to children a they are to the yonngof otherani mals ? And do we oot subject our teeth to deleterious influence from which animals that obey their natural instinct are exempt. The young of other animals, while dependent on the mother, get lime, and phosphorus, and potash, and silex, and all the other elements of which the teeth are composed, from the blood or milk of the mother, and she gets them from the food which Nature provides containing these ele ments in their natural proportions. But when can the child in its forming state get these necessary elements, whose mother lives principally on starch, and butter, and sugar, neither of which contains a particle af lime, phosphorus, potash, or silex? Nature performs no miracles. She makes teeth as glass is made, by combining the elements which compose them according to her own chemical principles. And this illustration is |he more forcible because the composition of the enamel of the teeth and of glass is very nearly identical ; both, at least, requiring the combination of silex with gome al taline principle. If, then, the mother of an unborn or nurs ing infant lives on white bread and butter, pastry and confectionary, which contain no silex, and very little of the other elements which compose the teeth, nothing short of a miracle can give her a child with good teeth, and especially with teeth well enamelled. But what articles of food will make good teeth ? Good milk will make good teeth, for it makes them for calves. Good meat will make good teeth, for it makes them for lions and wolvas. Good vegetables and frmts will make good teeth, for it makes them for mon keys. Good com, oats, barley, wheat, rye and indeed, everything that grows, will make good teeth, if eaten in their natural state, no elements being taken out: for every one o ; them does make teeth for horses, cows, sheep, or some other animal. But starch, sugar, lard, or butter will not make good teeth. You tried them all with your child s first teeth, and failed; and your neighbors have tried them, and indeed all Christendom has tried bem, and the result is that a mau or woman at forty with good, sound teeth is a very rare exception.—Dr. A. J . Bellows. FLOWERS IN FARMERS' GARDENS. Who is there that does not love flowers, and who among all classes have more need of the beautiful in nature and art than the laboring man ? Surround a man exhausted by bard labor with the beautiful and he will almost forget his exhaustion, if he has a spark of taste tor the beautiful in bitn. Our suburban towns and rural places, where labor has held undisputed sway for so long a time, are annually becoming more :• (tractive by the introduction of educated taste, in sur rounding the dwellings, 4c., with the orna mental as weil as the useful. The love and culture of flowers has a refin ing tendency: the mind and the heart are made tbe better in such pursuits. The care and cultivation of tt-rn elevate and purify the mind. Children are often inspired with cheer ful views of life, and in their care their man' ners are softened, and they become attached to their homes and rural pursuits. Wherever we sea flowers cultivated we find a greater degree ot intelligence and refine ment ; children, as well as grown persons, are more respectful and orderly, so much so that a traveler will have his attention called to it in merely passing along. He will see ail about the buildings and premises indications of taste, neatness and order; an air of thrift, comfort and good farm ..g will also be ob served. The wide-spread and deeper love and culti vation of flowers will give a happy and ruore enduring love ol home, end affect ti c < harac ter of our homes as v eil as our farms. In stead of seeing our door yatd, wiih poor bro ken-down gates and rickety fences, where cattle, pigs, gee , 4c., are at hnn.e, we shall see handsome enclosures well filled or orna mented wiih fruits and flowers; these will not only please the eye of the inmates and passers, but give an increased money value to tbe place. The employment and culture of the garden, and the beautiful, is peculiarly adapted to bring back the strength and equanimity of the invalid body or mind, and wean from sorrows occasioned by bereavemnet of friends. Th care of flowers will oiten. by diverting the mind, perform cures that no medicine of the apothecary can heal. Few dwellings are there where flowers or climbers cannot be cultivated, and thereby add to, if not entirely change, the appearauce and whole aspect of the houie. It is not my purpose to give an entire list tS plants suitable for the farmer's garden and yard, but if anything I may advance will in duce even one to commence or increase their culture, or even eucourag the wavering, my object will be accomplished. The good judgment and tasie of all wid lead to the adoption of suitable ornamental shrubs, climbers, flowers, <tc. Among the more commou and hardy climbers we find the Scarlet Trumpet Honeysuckle, the Yeilow Trumpet Monthly, and the Evergreen Month, ly Honeysuckle; there are also a variety of climbing roses, such as the Michigan, the Baltimore Belle, Ac.; the last has large clusters of pale, almost white, double flowers, with a waxy blush. The Virginia Creeper or American Woodbine is a very beautiful and ornamental climber. The leaves in the autumn assume a rich and gorgeous tint, and it is the most ornamental and showy plant Of its genus. In order that the gardeu should retain its beauty and attractiveness throughout the scasou, there should be u succession of flow ers from the time the stiow leaves the ground in spring till (all frosts destroy vegetation: and a judicious selection, even if only few in numbers, will give a pleasing variety and effect. Bulbous flowers for earliest, such as snowdrops, crocuses, 4c.; bloodroot and violets soon follow, and other herbaceous perennials and annuals for successors, with later blooming bulbous plants, annuals, Ac., j for late summer and fall flowers. The cultivator will be at no loss what kinds to select to secure a constant succession; if he is, let him address some one of the many florists who issue descriptive catalogues with directions for culture, who advertise in bis agricultural paper, and procure their cata logue, which will be found to be worth to him many times the price.— Germantown Telegraph. CABBAGE PLANTS should be set out as soon as spring fairly begins. Make a hole in the ground with a pointed stick, pour in liquid manure, then put in tie plant, and press the ground close around it. Treated in this way, cabbage plants never fail to grow. Thx Military authorities in Canada have introduced the earth closet system at (be bar racks and invite farmers to purcbese the re frar for fertilizing purposes. PGIUMONMG. "THIS world is all a fleeting show," said a priest to a culprit on the gallows. "Yes," was the prompt reply, "but if you have no objection, I'd like to sec the show a little longer." A NOOPI.X writes to ask Punch if there is any truth in the old saying, that "pigs see the wind," and it so, what wind is it they see. Punch replies, "Why, of course they can, and the particular wind in question is a 'Sow-wester.'" AT a certain church fair, held during the winter, a set ot Cooper's works was promised to the individual who should answer a certain number of conundrums. A dashing young fellow was announced winner, and received a set of wooden pails ! "I SAX, Pompey," said one freedman to another, "dis chile has tried lots ob gilt fare, and tings for a prize, but nebber could draw anything at all." "Well, Crnsar, I'd ,vise you to try a hand-cart; de chances are a tou sand to one dat you could draw dat." THE other day X. called oo Madam Q. "Madam, can I see your husband?" "No, sir: he is out at present. He went out to buy a cigar." "Did he say when he would return madam ?" "Xo." "Has he keen gone long ?" " More than twrnty years." "Ah, I see,"said X..

"How comes it, you rascal, that these boots are not of the same length ?" "1 really don't know, sir; but what bothers me most is, that the pair down stairs is in the ►owe fix." A B'v •" Cambridge was recently excused trom school to attend u funeral: but a truant officer iound him, soon after, witnessing a game of baseball, and asked him why he did not go to the funeral.

HEAVY THUNDER. —We have seen the fol. lowing in print before but as there is some change it will bear telling over again: A family in La Crosse. Wisconsin have been missiDg stove-wood for several weeks past. On the return of one of the members of the family, a few days since, the case was stated, and Sunday uigbt a very pretty stick of fuel was left with others on the wood-pile. In the stick were two ounces of powder, for *afe keeping. Monday the stick was there: Tuesday the stick was there, and the laugh was getting on the man who fixed it. k\ ed nesday morning the stick was gone. Wed nesday forenoon an explosion was heard in a house neat by, and a kitchen window was spared no panes ! On goiug to the spot, a sight might have been seen. Tbe stove had [ joiued a piece conference. A kettle of pork and cabbage shot up through the roof like an arrow. A dish of apples, stewing on the stove, gave the ceiling the appearance of a map ol California. A cat, sleeping under the stove, went through tbe broken window, as though after the devil or a doctor. The cat has not been heard from since, but a smell ol burnt cat hair pervades the house very thor oughly ! A flat-iron was hoisted into a pan of dough, a chair lost three legs, the wood box looks sick, while the roof of tbe house looks like a busted apple-dumpling. Ibe oc cupant of the ruins says, "Such dunder never conies before, or he buys a liyhltniu' rod by turn. THE New-Orleans pel - e relate an incident, recently occuring in the city, which discloses a very adventurous disposition on the part of acertaiu burgler. It appears that he had en tered a house in which a couple of young la dies resided. In his search after plunder, he visited their apartment. Seeing the disorder in which sometimes the rooms of young ladies are left, an idea occurred to him to examine and then try on the loose apparel scattered about. The boops, with their tnany tangled bars, were first adjusted to his person. Then he donned the overskirt, and over this he put the dress. Next he found a bonnet, and, after carefully adjusting the veil, looked the beau ideal of a young lady incognito. But his rash nes did not end here. The beatiful faces lying on the pillow were irresistibly tempting to the bold intruder. He must have a kiss, even if it led to detection. The ripe, full lips were smiling, and the yellow bair lay like floss of gold on the pillow. The burglar had good taste. A moment hesitating, bis discretion flew away, and his impure lips pressed those of the sleeping beauty. A faint scream, and the lady started up in bed. "Who are you, ma'am ?" '"Only your aunt, my dear : don't you know your aunt?" was the reply from behind the veil. '•What! not aunt B 1" "Yes, indeed!" "Oh, I'm so glad !" and the white arms were thrown around the neck of the impostor, and passionate kisses rained ou the face ct the pretended relative. "Now lay right down, my dear, and go to sleep. I'll see you again in the morning.'' And with this benevolent injunction the "auut" hastily left the room. The next morning the young lady's dress was found in the ball below, and, although she searched every room, no aunt was to be fonnd. i> LAS T E R.—The subscriber would respect fully inform the public that he has just re ceived trom the city 60 tons of the best Nova Sco tia ROCK PLASTER. and will continue to receive as his stuck diminishes until the first of April, which he will grind and keep for sale at Hartley's Mi l. acd will sell as cheap as can be bought for cash, or wheat, rye or corn, at the highest cash prices, taken in exchange.

RENOVATION ' r 1 THE GREX DESIDERX Tl if of the A <-E A dressing which is at once agreeable, heathy, ■ - .v. TT.tr. Faded or gray hair it toon rettored to it t original color and the glott and frethnett of youth. Thin hair is thickened, falliDg 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 iouling the hair with a pasty sediment, it will keep it clean vigorous. Its occasional use will prevent thehair from turning gray or falling off, and consequently prevent baldness. Free from those deleterious substances which make some preparations dan gerous and injurious to the hair, the Vigor can only benefit but not bann it. If wanted mere for a HAIR DRESSING, nothing else can be found so desirable. Contain ing neither oil nor dve, 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.
