SMALL FARMS MOST PROFITABLE —Small
farms always dp return the largest profit. There are thousands of farmers, all over the United States, who would make more clean money to dispose of one half their land, and work the remainder thoroughly, than they now make by going over such a large breadth. Still large farms can be cultivated with more net profit to the proprietor than small oneß by proper management. Yet according to the present system of management, small farms do return the most profit. The reason for this is, that a farmer with only a small number of acres is more apt to till better, manure more bountifully, and per form every operation more thoroughly than if he were required to till double the number of acres. If a farmer, for example, work! twenty acres, be must necessarily keep a good j team, and as complete an assortment of tools and iarm implements as it* he were cultiva ting City acres. A good team will usually perform all the labor on fifty acres and re quire very little more care aud feed than if they perform only the labor of a twenty-acre farm. Taking this view of the subject, it will be perceived that it costs comparatively more to carry on a mall farm than a large one. But the chief ..rgument against large farms is, that fanasrs are liable to work over a j great breadth of land without doing every part of the cultivation thoroughly. The man with a small farm will make more manure in comparison to his neighbor who cultivates twice as much land as himself. For this rea son, the farmer who has the greatest breadth of cultivable acres will not usually raise as bountiful crops as if he tilled only half of the amount of land. A thorough going farm er may cultivate fifty acres with as satisfaeto ry profit acre for acre, as he can till twenty, if he managejudiciously. THINGS DONE.— Coffee, ten, pepper, and spices are left stand open and loose their strength. The cork is left out of the molasses jug, aud the fl.es take possession. Vinegar is drawn in a tin basin and allowed to stand until both basin and vinegar are spoiled. Dried fruit is not taken care ot in season, and becomes wormy. Potatoes in the cellar grow, and the sprouts ore not removed until they become worthless. Pork spoils for want of salt, and beef be cause the briDe wants scalding. Bones are burned that would make sonp. Clothes are left on the line to whip to pieces in the wind. Brooms are never bung up, and soon are spoiled. Teapots are melted by the stove. Water is forgotten and left in pitchers and allowed to freeze, in winter. Slops for cow and pig never saved; and in many other ways a careless and inexperienc ed housekeeper will waste, without heeding, the hard wages of her husband. [The above are household leaks from Mrs- Haskell's llouse Encyclopedia. There are some who doubtless, can learn something by reading them. THERE IS A SEASON FOR AU. THINGS.— And all things should be in season, on a farm especially. If a farmer is a week or ten days late in sowing or planting, the rust or mildew may get his wheat, or the frost his corn. To be in season, have things ready. If you have no good seed, get it —if yon have to pay fifty cents per bushel above the market price; and in regard to wheat, always make a brine that will float a potatoe, nod swim off ali foul seeds, oats and light wheat before sowing—it will pay. A thing worth doing at nil, is worth doing well. Seed corn should be selected with care— not as a neighbor did last season. I gave him the privaUge of selecting it at a dollar or taking it as it came at 75 cents per bushel. He said, "sound nubbins would grow as well as large and full grown cars."' He raised thirty bushels to the acre of excellent corn. I picked my seed from the same crib to plant ten acres of late break:- and it turned off fifty bushels ; r acre. I believe like begets like. • We can't sow pink seed, v.ild buckwheat, oats, chess, and reasonably c-pect tc harvest a good crop of 'Neither plant seed corn from nubbins, and raise heavy corn; or follow the rule of large potatoes for sale and for the table, and mall ones to plant, and look for a good teturn for our labor. RECIPE WORTH slooo.— The Ohio Culti vator says the following recipe is worth one thousand dollars to every house keeper . "Take one pound of sal soda and ball a pound of un. icked lime and put them in a gallon of wn r, bod twenty minutes, let it tand till ct . then drain off and put in a small jug or jar; soak your dirty clothes over night, or until iliey are wet through, then wring tbem, and rub on plenty of soap, and with water add one teacupful of the washing fluid; boil half an hour or more, rinse, and your clothes will look better than by the old way of washing twice before boiling. This is an invaluable recipe, and e' ery poor, tired woman should try it." LOOK TO THE WEEPS. —Every good farmer knows that to insure satisfactory crops bis land must be cultivated in the best manner, and if it is so cultivated few weeds will be found upon it. Sometimes, even upon well managed farms, i!j a field here and there, owing to adverse . weather, a shortness of hands, or a rush of work generally, be ueg.ected for a few days the weeds may get a start: but this happens rarely, and an ob- serving man can always judge of the char # acter of a farmer by glancing his eye over his premises. If the weeds are not to be regularly and systematically destroyed, the idea of conducting agricultural operations profitably may as well be abandoned, for the ouc is.quite incompatible with the other. And this is even more pointedly so with the garden. Weeds and a garden crop are as antagonistic as life and death. They cannot stand upon the same platform. One must be master, and it is tor the owner to say which. If a garden is systematically worked—and w;thout system no garden is worth having— the labor of keeping down the weeds is re duced one-half. But let them once get ahead, and they may be fought all summer and prove victorious in the end. Again, lei no weeds go to seed; and do not throw into the public highway such as do, to bo washed down upon the land of your neigh bor.— Germantown Telegraph.

The examination is thus reported : Barber.—lt is the fault of this person, Merlon, who is in the court, as he has not time to be shaving until late at night. The President.—You ought not, at all events, to disturb the public peace; there were cries issuing from your house, as if you had been committing murder. Merlon.—He was shaving; that's almost the same. [Laughter.] The President.—Was it you. then, Merlon, who was crying out as if you were being flaved ? Merlon. Yes, in fact he was flaying me [a general laugh,]—he was cutting me hor ribly. Barber.—lt is very true, but I made a mis take. Merlon.—Did you mean to cut me? Barber.—l do not say that—prolonged laughter]—l certainly did not mean to cut him so deep—[loud and continued laughter.] The President. —Did you then cut him on purpose? Barber.—lndeed I did, in tbe spirit of my order. You understand, one does not like to be below his business. The President and Merlon together.—And why ? Barber.—The whole affair 13 this; Mr. Mer lon is not to be trusted, as he does not pay the ready money. He used to cheat me in (Ate number of shaves for which he owed me; when he had twelve, he used to say that he had only six, so that I lost both my razor, my soap, and my time. At last 1 devised a method of keeping a reckoning not to be dis puted. The President.—How was that? Barber.—Every time I shave him, I make a notch in his cheek [general laughter] when we count up, I look at his cheek—so many shaves —[renewed laughter]—but the other day the razor turned in my hand—l made the figure too large and it was this that made him cry out and disturb the neighborhood. Amidst general laughter, the barber was condemned to pay the full penalty, and the President advised him to renounce in future his new system of keeping accounts. FITCH HIM IN. —Mr. Greelev has never been accused of extravagance in dress, even by the Democrats. One morning, some years ago, habited in his usual quaint style, he was leaning over the counter in the Tribune office eating an apple when an Englishman entered who had that morning arrived by steamer, and who. it turned out, was connected with the London Times, and had come to arrange some business between that paper and the Tribune. Approaching Mr. Greeley with a very arro gant air, he said; "Fellow, do you work here?" "Yes, sir" "Is Mr. Greeley in?" "Yes, sir." After waiting a little, and seeing that the fellow seemed very indifferent to his presence and inquiries, he burst but almost choked with indignation: " Well, why the devil don't you go and fetch him in?" "I am Mr. Greeley, at your service," was answered in the same calm and indifferent manner. Johnny Bull's hat was removed from his head with alacrity, and when our friend left, he was stammering his confused apologies to the chief of the Tribune. WORTH TELLING AGAIN.— When Nich Biudle was connected with the United States Bank, there was an old negro named Harry, who used to be loafing around the premises- One day in a social mood, Biddle said to the darkey, "JVeil, what is your Dame, my old friend? "Harry, sir—old Harry, sir," said the other, touching his sleepy hat. "Old Harry! ' said Biddle, "why, that is the name that they gave to the devil, is it not ?" "Yes, sir," said the colored gentleman, "sometimes old Harry and sometimes old Nick." J") ODD 1 8 NERV I N E DID IT! Niw Lo.vnoa, Conn., April 26, 1569.

Through along seiics of years, ana among most of the races of men it Uss risen higher aad higher in the'r estimation as it has become beUer known.

While adapted to milder forms of disease an J to yoingchildron.it is at the same time ihe most effectual remedy that can be given for incipient consumption, and the dangerous nffcctior-' of the throat and lungs. As a moviaion against sudden attacks of Croat, it should be kept on hand iu ev ery familv, and indeed as all are sometimes sub ject to colds and coughs, all shou'd be provided with this an.'dote for them.

J'ntl gray hair it toon rettamed lo itt original color the glott and frtthuett of youth. Thin hair is thickened, falling hair checked, and baldness of ten, though not always, cured by 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 the hair from turning gray or falling off, and consequently prevent baldness. Free from those deleteriou' substances which make some preparations dan gerous and injurious to the hair, the Vigor can only benefit but not harm it. If wanted mere for a HAILL DRESSING, nothing else can be found so desirable.
