"A STICH IN TIME SAVES NINE."
Repairing any tool in time will more than lave nine times the work, because a timely bracing or fastening wi.l often save the sha king and jarring loose of the whole structure: and the stopping of a gap, or, better still, the repairing of a weak place in a fence before it becomes a gap, will not only save nine times the labor and material, but prevent the stock from becoming "breach." A stich in time would be an infinite saving in keeping up the fertility of the soil. A man owns a farm with virgin soil, similar to the praries of the West or the Blue grass district in the Southwest; when he piows any portion of it and has ob tained some prodigious crops, the virtue is lessened, as the yield becomes less ; then, if he is a sensible person, he will see that there is need of a stitch, and, having husbanded bis resources, he will apply some farm manure. If a stock farmer feeds the dam right, nature sets him the example of a fine, glossy-skinned and plump, gambolling offspring; and when he weans the prosperous progeny, should the gambols cease and the frame lose the rounded form y>r pleasing appearance, he will know that a stitch is needed in time to recover this lost ground, aud if he is a man of intelligence, he will give such food and attention as will put the poor little animal into the right con dition, and whoever cannot see when these stitches are necessary, or, better, cannot pre vent the need of the preliminary stitch, is not fit for the business of a stock-raiser. Yet how many of the owners of the best land for farming purposes not only never think of a otlvl. iw .I-.-, I—. a r. rt and literally throwing away every means of renovating the soil in a timely way, till their naturally good land is completely exhausted of every valua ble constituent! How many go many miles in one direction and then in another to pur chase fine, pure bred stock, get it home with great care, and then, from carelessness or penurionsness, fail to follow the teachings of nature, and neglecting the warnings visible to the commonest mind, give no stitch in time— which results in a degenerate race of animals, which, from the evils of one year's manage ment, will take nine years to recover, and in fact in this application it is worse, for an.mals stinted will never thoroughly overcome the effect. POSITION IN SLEEPING. Jt is better to go to sleep on the right side, for then the stomach is very much in the po sition of a bottle turned upside down, and the contents of it are aided in passing out by gravitation. If one goes to sleep on the left side, the operation of emptying the stomach of its contents is more like drawing water from a well. Alter going to sleep let the body take its own position. If you sleep on your back, especially soon after a hearty meal, the weight oi the diges tive organs and that of the food resting on the great vein of the body, near the backbone, compresses it, and arrests the flow of the blood more or less. If tha.arrest is partial, the sleep is disturbed, and there are unpleas ant dreams. If the meal has been recent and hearty, the arrest is decided : and the vari ous sensations, such as falling over a preci pice, or the pursuit of a wild Least, or other impending dangers, and the desperate efforts to get rid of them, arouse us, and send on the stagnant blood ; and we wake in a fright, cr trembling, or in a perspiration, or feeling ex hausted, according to the degree of stagna tion, and the length of the efforts made to es cape the danger. Bnt when we are unable to escape the dan ger —when we do fall over the presipice,— when the tumbling building crushes us—what then ? That is death ! That is the death of those of whom it is said, when they are found lifeless in the morning, that "they were as well as ever they were the day before and often, it is added, "and ate heartier thin common!" This last is a frequent cause of death to those who have gone to bed to wake no more, we give merely as a private opinion. The possibility of its troth is enough to deter any rational man from air,to and hearty mea'. This we do know with certainty, that waking up in the night with paiutul diarrhoea, or cholera, or bilhous cholic. ending in death in a very short time, is probably traceable to a very late large meal. The truly wise will take the safe side. For persons whb eat three times a day, it is amply suffi oient to make the last meal of cold bread and batter, and a cup of some warm drink. No one can starve on it, while a perseverance in the habit soon begets a vigorous appetite for breakfast, so promising a day of comfort.— Halt's Journal of Health. HOW TO UNHITCH A i CAM. There is always a right way to do every thing, and the right way to unhitch a team is that which is the quickest and safest. We have often noticed farm boys, and not only farm boys but men, disconnect a team from a wagon in a very unsafe manner: something as follows: The driver springs from the wag on goes to the sides of the horses, puts up the lines, unbuckles them at the bits, lets down the neck-yoke, unhitches tbe tugs and leads the horses away disconnected. Now this mode is very common, and verv risky. Let us notice why. In the first place, as soon as the lines are put up you have lost your means of control, as soon as the pole is down yonr horses are in peril. Supposing they should take fright, which is common to the most quiet animals, the result of a team running with only tbe tugs hitched can be imagined. We have cases in mind where horses have sped away with maddened fury in exactly this condition, the pole ploughing the ground, and at every plunge of the fren zied animals, the wagon striking on their heels, frightening them to desperation. Now the right way, or a good way at least, is to keep tbe lines in baud or where they can be reached until the tugs are all unhitched, then your team is free from the wsgon unless a stationary neck-yoke is used, next go directly in front of the horses and let down the neck yoke; and after this separate them.— Ohio Farmer. SALT IOR THE THROAT. —An exchange says: In these days when diseases of the throat prevail, and paiticularly a dry hacking cough, which is not only distressing to ourselves but to those with whom we are brought into business contact, those thus afflicted may be benefitted by trying the following remedy. Last fall we were induced to try what virtue there was in common salt. W'e commenced by using it three times a day—morning r.oon and night. We dissolved a large tablespoon of common salt in about half a tumbierful of told water, and with this we gargled the throat most effectually, just before meal time, "be result has been that during the winter we were not only free from the usual coughs aud colds to which as far as our memorv ex tends, we have always been subject, but the dry hacking cough has entirely disappeared. Vi 6 attribute it entirely to the salt gargle, mid GO most cordially recommend it to those of our readers who are subject to diseases of the throat" AN experienced orchardist says that apple trees two years old are better for setting out than those of a more advanced age, and will produce fruit as soon after being transplanted, all other things being equal, as trees fout or five years old. THE occasional use of onions mixed and fed to poultry with their other feed, is saiff to be one of the surest ways of keeping a yard of poultry in health. When do literary ladies change color? When they are so deeply read that they be come blue. A backward spring is produced by pre senting a red hot poker to a man's nose. If TOU would not nave affliction visit you twice, listen at once to what it teaches. Has it been noticed that ladies who like long trains are partial to tb# outskirts? Loafers, as a class, are no fools. They are always an owing set of fellows. If a redbreast comes into your fruit garden, does he come there a robhin ? Why are the aiouds like coachmen ?—Be cause they hold the rains. It is true of many men that their memory is nothing but a row of hooks to hang up grudges on. What class of women are most apt to give tone to society ? The belles. Why is a married man like a caudle? Be cause he sometimes goes out at night when he ought not to. An Irishman said he did not come to this country for want. He had abundance of that in bis own country. Matryirg and settling down is now called co-operative house keeping. No man will ever be able to build a house by carrying bricks in his hat. A young lady being asked why the noun bachelor is singular, replied, "because it's very singular they don't get married." ■nruj irv jMUi uuac 1U tuc uilJaic face? Because it is the sceuter. When is a blow from a lady welcome? I When she strikes you agreeably. Among the various stations in life the least desirable of all is the police station. What debt is that for which you can not be j sued ? The debt of nature. The prettiest lining for a bonnet is a pretty j face. Men of goblest disposition think themselves happiest when others share their happiness with them. The three essentials for happiness—some thing to do, something to love, and something to live for. Who is tho laziest man ? The furniture : man ; he keeps chairs and louuges about all t the time. LET a young woman take the degrees of; A. B.—that is a bride—and she may hope in I due time to be entitled to that of A. M. As lowa paper says: "It is all a mistake about Henry Clay Deau being a vain man. Soft soap has the least effect on him of any man we ever saw." A LAZY fellow once tjeelared in a public j company that he could hot find tread for his : ! family. "Nor I," replied an industrious me- j chanie; "i am obliged to work for it." DOCOLAS JERROLD having been invited to a I large dinner party at the house of his friend. Mr. Pepper, observed upon entering the room, with a cordial shake of the hand, "My dear Mr. Pepper, how delighted you must be to see so many devoted friends mustered." "SHALI. I cut this loin of mutton saddle wise?" said a gentleman. "No," said one of his guests, "cut it bridlewise, for then I may chance to get a bit in my mouth." A LADY having bought sausages of a couple of boys, overheard them disputing about the mouey. "Give ine half," says one. "No, I won't," soy 3 the other. "Now, that ain't fair, you know 'taint, doe, for half the pup was mine." NEW ORLEANS relates a case of ab3cntmind edness. A gentleman writing at his break last table dipped his pen in the coffee and ; continued his letter. Noticing his mistake, [ be put a large lump of sugar in the ink ! and then, finding Lis second blunder, poured the contents of the inkstand into ths coffee ; cup to set it right. "CAN - you tell me," —asked a pompous j j school-committee-man of a modest little girl, ) —"why Nature did Dot make asparagus grow j with each end equally succulent?" "Because, if it bad, it would have been impossible for man to hold it in his fingers," was the satis ■ factory reply. A LADY who had boasted highly at a dinner | party of the good manners of her little dar liug, addressed him thus: "Charlie, my dear, wont you have some beans?" "No," was the ill-mannered reply of the, petulent cherub. "No !" exclaimed the astonished mother. "No what ?" "No beans," said the child. AN Hibernian officer, being once in com pany with several who belonged to the same corps, one of them, in a laugh, said he would iay a dozen of claret that the Irishman made a bull before the evening was over. "Done,- said Terence. The wager was laid, and byway of puzzling him, he was ask ed how many bulls there were in that town. "Five," said he. "How do you make them out?" said the other. "Faith," said he, "there is the Black Bull j in the market-place, and the Red Bull over j the way; then there is the Pied Bull just by I 'he bridge, and the White ball at the cor j uer." | "They are but four," said the other. "Why arrth," said he, "there is the Dun Cow in the Butcher-row." "That's a bull," said the other. '"Be jabers," said he, "then I have won my wager, for you have made the bull and not I me." WANTED THEM SORTED AGAIN. — The fol . lowing story from the Abend-Zeilung, the : German evening paper of Chicago, deserves i translation. It says. "It was a small but tperry company that j met last evening at our friend Kenkel's, un der the Sherman House. Bottle followed j bottle in rapid succession, and the 'tone' of the imbibers was the most exalted. But j finally came a reaction, a drowsiness overtook the majority, and all bukfour departed. This | quartette had 'fit" so nobly that the field was literally strewn with their bodies, and aid : was required to get them home. According !y the proprietor called a carriage from the | stand the way, and with difficulty deposited a customer in each corner. He ■ then turned to the driver and instructed him : as follows: " 'Dia one on de left corner drive to No. West Randolph street. Dia one in the right corner you must take to the marble front on Union street, near the Baptist church. You must take him up de stairs and tell his wife not to fight mit him. Dat leetle fcller in do back seat take to Milwaukee avenue, by Schultze's next the Odd Fellow's Hall, and de odder one lives by Linkum Park.' "The driver, with an 'all slammed the door of the carriage, mounted his seat and was off. Mr. Kenkel and his 'Joe' set things torights in the place, and in about twenty miuutes were ready to close the saloon, when the identical carriage again halted before the door. " ' W hot's the matter?' inquired the pro prietor. * " ' I have met with a sad mishap.' said the driver. 'ln passing sharply round a cdrner the of the vehicle threw thc-m all into n heap. I have been trying to right them, but cau t t(Hi which from 'tether. Won't you please sort them again?" PACTFTC TAIEVAY ~ (ifiLD LOAN. *a, 500,000.
