How to Wash Dishes.
In the matter of washing dishes many
servants are wofully deficient, and yet a
sticky plate or cup is the abhorrence
ot all neat house-keepers. To avoid un
necessary annoyance, we should teach our
domestics tp wash first, and dry immedi
ate y, all glassware, then cups, saucers,
and spoons; after that the greasy dishes
from which all scraps have been scraped :
then the knives and forks, taking care that
the knife-handles are not pufln the hot
water, as that loosens and blackens thorn,
win e they are readily cleansed by a damn
cloth. .Silver forks, whether solid or
plated, should never be tossed about in
contact with steel knives, as the latter are
sure to inllict unseemly scratches.
The water for washing glass nnd deli
cate china should never 'be very hot, and
even granite or stone ware should not be
in water where you cannot easily b pr
your hand, for though the dishes may not
actually break, they soon become full of
unsightly small dark checks. A very lic
tle soap sufliocs, more than just the quan
ti.y to remove grease is apt to leave a dis
agreeable roughness. For delicately
painted French china, fair warm soft
water without any soap is best. Two tin
pans, one lor washing and the other for
rinsing, rather deeper than milk-pans, and
painted on the outside to prevent rut, are
often preferred to the wooden dish-tub,

A Dakota Romance.
Four years' ago, a young Swede left his
young wife and two children in the old
Northland, until he should cross the
oceans to the poor nwn's paradise of the
West, and there make for them and him
self such home and harvests as other eml-
f rants had made and written back about,
ntelllgent In his social class, he lot no
time after landing here In hastening to the
cheap lands of the Northwest, andlnvost
Ing the modest sum he had brought with
him in as many virgin acres as the great
er portion thereof would buy. Fargo, in
Dakota Territory, was the place of his
settlement, and "while winning there the
esteem of his human neighborhood and a
fair average return for his toil, it was
nearly four years before he had redeemed
and civilized his new estate sufficiently,
by tireless labor anl sacrifice, to make
him satisfied to summon thither the tender
and helpless ones from across the sea. At
last, however, one of his home letters said
"Cornel" and the epistle in answer then
to informed him that wife and little ones
would surely sail in a certain ship from
one of the more northerly Swedish ports
on a certain day. Thenceforth he counted
the months and weeks with something
less of patience than had been given be
fore to harder yours, and kept himself
alert for the eastern train that he should
meet, with swelling heart, at Glyndonj
But that tialn came and did hot bring

"They Will come. They will novas. I
know it," were his word"! 'over nnd over
again. The tidings of the wreck seemed
to have beti ho more to him than an d
mouitlon to miraculous faith, and, while
not disputing them in terms, his
manner appeared to set. them in
vincibly aside. He secured a f riend, or
agent, t Glyndon to watch for that sure

Measuring Land.
In the English law courts, cases often
occur which Interest us on this side of the
water. 1 ,c bases of our laws have much
iri common, and wlien there are no spe
cial enactments here to meet unexi ected
i-uM'-i. r.ngii-ti precedents have much in-
fluciiC ; in deciding ea'es of our own. In
a recent one the question involved was
what constituted a half mile of groum
I he defendant sold a tavern to plaintiff.
bargaining that he would not build an
other within half a mile of It. The land
away from the tavern sloped considera
bly, ami, measuring down this slope, an
other house was built beyond the half
mile so measu ed. But plaintiff contend
ed that the half mile should bo in a hori
zontal direction, and i;sue was according
ly taken. J ho judges were undecided
about it, but ultimately found for the
plaintiff, anil in accordance with the hor
i.ontal views; but an appeal was taken
to a high' r court.
Ueeently the case came up again before
what is known as a lull court. There
were many learned arguments on both
sides. It was contended that the distance
one hud to travel along the surface should
be the measure of the mile. It was, how
ever, decided by a majority of the bench
that the horizontal line is the true meaS'
ure that is, the measure as it would ap
pear on a map independent of any undu
lations in tncKuriacc oi the ground.
IMs seems common sense as well as
law. It Is flie principle on which land is
always sold. Some people argue that
they get more land surface on an undu
lating surface, when the measure is thus
taken horizontally, than when they buy
a niece oi aDsoiuteiy level land, inev
do have more surface, nominally, but act
ually there Is no more. Plants grow per
pendicularly ; and no matter how great
the slope, they must stand erect, so also
the horse and man tl:at works, or the cat
tle which graze over it. must have an up.
right position ; and it takes more surface
to accomplish this In proportion as the
land slooes.
Thus, supposing rows of corn be plant
ed four feet apart on a level ; on a slope
oi one leet in lour, tne rows wouiu nave
to be planted live feet apart in order that
that the corn should grow but four feet
from one another. This may be made still
more clear by taking a piece of board, say
a foot wide and two inches thick. Flat on
the ground, a ro-v of plants on each side
would be twelve Inohes apart ; but set the
board nearly or quite on edge, and the
plants, having to grow in an upright po
sition, if planted on a line with the bot
tom and top of the board would then be
but two inches apart. 'As, therefore,
plants grow upright, it is the horizontal
me only which anords the proper base
surface, and hence there is no gain what
ever in an undulating farm surface over
one quite on a level. The undulating
farm of course looks much larger, but re
ally there is just the same amount of grow
ing surface, Forney' Press.

TREKS AND SHRUBS IN LAWNS.
Two great errors are; usually made,
both by gardeners and amateurs one
destroying the lawn by cutting It np With
unnecessary walks and flower bsds. the
other producing the same result by almost
covering it with trees and shrubbery.
Grass cannot grow well among the roots
and under the shade of trees and shrubs,
and no lawns can look well cut up in sec
tions by numerous roads. Most of the
little lawns we see in the country are al
most destroyed by one or both c f these
causes. The main part of the lawn should
be left unbroken by tree or shrub, as a
general rule, and ttany tree Is admitted it
should be only an occasional fi no specimen,
like a purplo beech or magnolia, or
cut-leaved birch. A tree or two in cer
tain appropriate laces for shade, Is of
course desirable; but plant for the fu
ture, not for tho present, and always have
In view tho size, form and habits of the
trees when full grown, ond not their
present small size and perhaps delicate
form.

course, either rfal or apparent; therefore
arrange yoir planting so as to make an
apparent necessity for every turn, Tl Idea
is shown In the above engraving, where
the walks turn to accommodate the trees.
One great dilliculty with American gar
dens is that they arc too large, nnd not
sulllclcntly cured for If we give the same
amount cf labor on a quarter of an acre
that we row expend on nn acre, tho re
sult would be much more satisfactory.

of cultivation, it li this kind of excellence
that affords pleasure, while failure or par
tial success is a source of pain. It U not
only a fault to cultivate too much grounl,
but even too many flowers. .Some seem
anxious to obtain and grow everything.
This is not best, especially where there is
not a good deal of time and money to be
devoted to the work. A choice selection
is best, and I like every cultivator of flow
ers to have a pet or hobby. Take, for in
stance, the Pansy, and "make it a" pet.
Obtain the choicest seed, and give the
plants the best of care, and you will see to
what wonderful perlection it .can be
grown, in a few years you will tire, per
haps, of this. Then adopt the Balsam, or
Stock, Or Aster. Always have something
choice something grown better than any
one else is growing it something you
have reason to be proud of. It will aston
ish you to see how flowers thrive under
such petting, and what a wonderful exhi
bition they make of their gratitude.
1'I.OWKR-IIBDS.
Some persons may think from what we
have said in favor of grass in front of the
house in preference to beds of flowers,
that we are no friend of these beautiful
treasures these delightful children of the
neid and garden, who speak in every fra
grant breath, and lovely tint, and c-racefUl
form, of Him Who tpake from naught this
matchless beauty. I only wish them to
be treated In a proper manner. In the
center of the lawn, especially if opposite
a window, it is well to make a round or
oval bed, and on the borders, or near the
edges oi tne lawn, bfds of various grace
ful forms. A few plans for these are giv
en in the alinex'.d engraving.
ihese beds should be
filled with flowers that
will keep in bloom during
the whole season, and It, is
best generally to have but
one Kind in a bed. l'lilox
Drummondii, Verbena,
i-ortuiaca, ami the scarlet
Geraniums, are well
adapted for this purpose.
These beds, it must be re
membered, are for tho or

make generous beds of
flowers that you can cut
freely Asters, Balsams,
Zinnias, Stocks, Mignon
ette, Sweet Teas, etc. In
these beds you can also
grow ttie Kverlasting
Flowers for winter use.
It is best to make the beds

width, so that you can

with alleys or paths be
tween. A few well filled
vases are a tii.e and appro
priate decoration ot any
grounds if kept in good
condition with healthy
plants. The evaporation
from baskets and vases is
very great, much more
than is generally supposed, as every side
is exposed to air, sun, etc., and they must
receive a copious supply of water every
evening in dry weather, to keep the plants
in a neaitny condition.
HOCK FLOWER BHDS.
Another very pretty ornament for the
garden is the uockery, made ot rough
stones, tistefully laid up, with eartli suf-

his wife very ill, was one day talking to
Garrlck in a line, sentimental manner, in
praise of conjugal love and fidelity. ''The

ance, ,lwho behaves unkindly to Ids wife.

USEFUL SUGGESTIONS.
Cleaning: AVoon Work. There )g
nothing better for cleaning painted wood
work than a piece of common India-rubber.
Jtub the wood as if you were erasl ng
pencil marks, and then pass a dry brush
over It. No water is necessary.
To Remove Stains from Mattrasses.
Make a thick paste by Wetting starch
with cold water. Spread this on the stnin,
first putting the mattrass in the sun. Hub
this off alter an hour or so, and if the tick
ing is not clean, try the process again.
Frk.cklk tjOTioNs.-Muriate Of ammonia,
one dram ; distilled water, seven ounces ;
Cologne water, two drams. Another
remedy for these unsightly marks, is to
procure powdered niter, moisten it ith
water, and apply eight and moi'ning, and
they will soon disappear.
Cement for Leather. Ten parts of
carbon dlsulphide and one part oil of tur
pentine are mixed, and as much gutta
percha added as Will readily dissolve. The
surface of leather lhlist be freed, with a
hot Iron, from fat, and the parts once join
ed should be well pressed until they art
flrmly united.
To Make Ci.oTn Waterproof. Into a
half bucket of soft water put half a pound
of sugar of load. In another half bucket
of water, put half a tio'tnd alnrrt. fUir till
dissolved and then mix the two solutions
togather. Slir wrll, let stand till clear
and pour oft", rut tho garments In the
li'inid for '24 hours, take out and hang up
to dry without wringing. Acetate of

lo Clean Silver. Dr. Klshcr -savs
that hot '.-ater tioilred olt Potato barings
or boiled potatoes Is admirably adapted to
clean silver. The oniect can do easily
rubbed bv the fingers with the settlings
of potato meal, and they become as bright
as they usually do when rubbed with
tiipoli. The. process is particularly ad
vantageous for engraved and raised ob-
ects, where tne powder is liable to collect
in tile cavities. German silver and plated
ware can bo cleaned in the same way. Po
tato water which has become sour by long
standing can be substituted for acids to
clean copper vessels.

then pour the cement in a fluid state upon

and a smooth joint. The above will repair
zinc, lead, or Iron, arid Is a good cement
for aquariums.
To Fasten a Horse. When there is
nn lilt-.l!n rr T,rtcf l,flir n lini-cn mntr
safely tied in the following manner, name
ly : Take tho reins and pass them round
underneath the nuo outside ot the wheel,
and give them a hitch on to one of the
spokes. If the horse start the reins are
drawn up, instantly checking him. and as
soon as he commences to back they are as
instantly loosened. If in addition to this
when there are a pair of horses one of the
traces are loosened, the team will seldom
move far enough forward to start the
wagon without being checked by the bits.
Xo team, however, should be left without
tying, if it can possibly be avoided.
Bekf Tea. A writer in the Canada
Lancet gives a new process for making
oeei-tea, as ionows : "Take a thin rump
steak of beef, lay it upon a board, and
with a case-knife scrape it. In this way a
red pulp will lie obtained, which contains
pretty much everything in the steak, ex
cept the fibrous tissue. Mix this red pulp
thoroughly with three times its bulk of
cold water, stirring until the pulp is com
pletely diffused. Put the whole upon a
moderate lire and allow it to come slowly
to a boil, stirring all the time to prevent
the 'caking' of the pulp. In using this do
not allow" it to be strained, but stir the
settlings thoroughly into the fluid. One
to three fluid ounces of this may be given
at a time."
The "Woman Movement."
It is interestlag to see how steadily the
great "woman movement" is advancing,
and specially to observe that the wo
men who are demanding all the privi
leges enjoyed by the male citizen not un
frenuently exhibit a willingness to accept
all his responsibilities. In order to show
their capacity for doing all things that
men do, two young women, of Scotland,
had recently a scientific set-to in the ring,
in which they exhibited quite as much
pluck, if not so trained a skill, as the
best prize-lighters display on these occa
sions. The' young ladies went to the
place selected," accompanied by their re
spective backers and friends (of which
sex these were the accounts do not state):
seconds and a referee were appointed, and
the combat began, each fair one having,
in imitation of her male exemplar, close
ly cropped her locks, golden or other
wise. The struggle went on with exact
regard to the laws of the noble art, until
tyrannical man, in the aspect of a police
officer, interrupted the performance, leav
ing the world forever in the dark as to
which was the better combatant. The
interposition of women in politics and
aflairs, you know, is to retine ruder man
and extinguish his barbaric tastes I Ex.
Many persons say that tliev have tried
almost every yemedy that has been recom
mended for humors, nnd they are no better
now than when they commenced them, and
they have no confidence in anything that is
advertised to cure Salt Itlieum. Erysipelas,
and all similar humors. We would say to
these that there is now a remedy that iis yet
has never failed of curing thone diseases. It
acts upon an entirely ditferent principle from
anything ever oll'ured for them ; it throws
humor out of the blood through the skin,
which is the only channel through which the
system, can be entirely freed from them. If
you will try it, vou will not say of this as
you have by the others, for it will cure you.

Medical Guesswork.! The profes
sional treatment of diseases is in a great
measure experimental. If one medicine
fails another is tried, and sometimes this
hit-or-mlss practice is pursued until the
resources of the faculty are exhausted.
This, in the truest sense of the word, is
empiricism. But when the physician has
made a valuable discovery, he is called by
his professional brethren an Empiric be
cause he advertises the result f his labor
and research. When Dr. Walker of Cali
fornia introduced his celebrated Vinegar
Bitters as a remedy for all blood dis
eases, he struck a tremendous blow at the
empirical system, as applied to our hospi
tals, and in private practice. It was soon
apparent that bis medicine was pot a mere
palliative or alleviatlve that only modified
the symptoms of a disorder ; but that It
reached r7te very source oithe malady hi the
blood and the secretions, and literally
rooted it out. The process of renovation
and disinfection went on together, vigor
was imparted to the organs from which
tho virus of disease had been expelled.
That such is the eflect of this peculiar
vegetable remedy, no one who has had
opportunities of observing iti operation
in casep of .liver complaint, indigestion,
aflectious of the bowels, gout, rheuma

Thn Judgment of the Iulillc
Doctors disagree. Kach school of medicine lias
its own theories, and as ihese theories differ wide
ly. It is clear that few, if any of them, can be
right. ItHt If medical men cannot agree upon any
theoiy r system Of practice, the public find no
Ulfflculty in agreeing aB to notorious matters of
fact. For Instance, theyiave observed for many
years that Hostetter's Stomach Hitters uniformly
cure dyspepsia, constipation, rheumatism, bil
iousness, nervous debility, and many other dis
eases which the prescriptions of the pharmacopeia
do not and cannot cure; and they know, therefore,
that there can be no mistake about It. On this
point they are firm and positive. They take their
stand on Incontrovertible facts, and they state to
one another verballv, and sometimes by letter,
what they know about relieving and preventing
sickness with the Btandurd vegetable tonics and al
terative of America.
Here, then, the Invalid lias a guarantee of value
that can be relied upon, viz: the sober Judgment
f the public. After twenty years of observation
and reflection, the American people pronounce,
Hostetter's Bitters the best Invigorating and regu
lating medicine at their command, and give evi
dence of the faith, that is in them by purchasing
more of It than of any other advertised medicine
manufactured on thlB continent. A large number
of physicians, too, however much they may dlil'er
on other points In therapeutic?, admit the extraor
dinary merits of the Hitters as a tonic and altera
tive, and recommend it as a preventive of may
larlous diseases, and as a remedy In Intermittent
and remittent fevers.

Their Counter-irritant influence extends throughout
