It will be uso lesi to set out young trees in n stifl', poor soil, nnd expect them to give n satisfac tory return; it is true they may live and bear in time, but they can never make a healthy growth, or produce good fruit.

I'l.viiiK lor the Fair. " I could atalo unfold," says a Tribune correspondent, how Jones's ram, or Smith's cow, or Robinson's bull took that premium, that would make Brown open his eyes in astonishment. Brown wondered why his (Jotswolds' fleece was so raw and harsh after it had been washed with soap and warm water, but ho did not dream as he snoozed iu the next pen upon the straw, that loug before daylight Toiieu had rubbed his rani's ileeee with yellow oslier and so gave it a rich color, a soft greasy feel, nnd a luster that charmed the judges and took them by ; fctorm in a moment. Aud he does not , know to this day that Smith's cow was i fed a quart of linseed oil daily a week ; before tlie milking trial was made and ! her cream measured thirty per cent, of the milk, nor that her tail was bound tin every night in hay bauds to make it tluu, ' tust pence and quiotndo now prevail, and ex uor that her skin was sponged down I tending a welcome to all immigrants, promising early m ma morning witn a mixture oi i oow dung and water, which was allowed la dry upon it and give it the rich orange color that was so much admired by every body. Nor did ho see the cow's owner umidpnperiiig her horns and polishing them with beeswax, and carefully going over her switch with a feather aud a bot tle of ink. And in this way the inno cent man would have found that the pre miums were filched from poor but honest exhibitors who relied on merit only, and that bv a course of such breeding the reputation of certain pedigree stock was built up; and then lie might have re peated with the poot, truly "things aro not what they seem." Feeding Ileus. Hens will lay in cold weather if sup plied with a greater variety of food. I keep thirty hens and three roosters. I do not house them well, and for three months of winter tho suii does not shine ou their house, it being under a lull facing north, and altogether n very cheerless place. I feed corn, buckwheat, cabbage, potatoes, and all waste, vegeta bles from tho table; keep them supplied wilh a box of water, and a box of sand to dust in, also coal ashes. Last winter I bought twenty pounds of bone from the meat market and broke up a little every day.

Xorman, Sew York A Healthy Farmers' Club. Tlie Elmira (X. Y.) Farmers' Club, though a local institution, has attracted no little attention abroad by the practi cal wisdom of its debates and the sound caution of its conclusions. It in now in the Bixtli year of its usefulness, and the influence it exej-ts is obvious in the improved farming of it section. Their present building was erected several venrs since, at a cost of $4,000 or &5.000. The second story forms a spacious hall for their discussions, with an ample re cess for the library, which contains some 2,000 volumes. The membership num bers over 200 earnest, practical farmers, soino of then from Pennsylvania, who meet weelc'v, through most of the year, to discuss all topics interesting to farm er i each man contributing the best paints iu his own experience to illustrate or to resolve the various questions that arise. While I sat listening to the edi fying remarks of different members, says a correspondent, it seeme J to me, from the sound and sensible views of some, from the new and striking thoughts ad vanced by others, and from the general tone of the discussion, that these men, whilo intent on solving practical ques tions in their business, were also train ing and developing their own higher faculties, and that the tendency of such clubs is clearly to make not only better farmers but more efficient and accom plished men.

' 1 S When a child's ear becomes painful, as it so often does, everything should be done to soothe it, and all Btrong irritating applications should be avoided. Pieces oi liot onion or fifc Bhould not be put in; but warm flannels should bo applied, with poppy-fonientation, if the pain does not soon subside. How much children suffer from their ears unpitied because unknown it would probably wring the hearts of those who love them, suddenly to discover. It is often very hard, even for medical men, to ascertain that the cause of a young child's distress is seated in the ear, 'and frequently a sudden dis- cnuxge iium u, j the Nevada Stateprison receives twenty first reveals the secret of a mysterious . , . . . . ' attack which has really been au inflam- ... . mi i i mation oi tne arum, xne watcmuiness i of a parent, however, would probably suffice to detect the cause of suffering, if directed to this point, as well as to others. If children cry habitually when their ears are washed, that should not be neglected; there is, most likely, some cause for pain. Many membranes are destroyed from discharges which take place "during "teething." Whenever there is a discharge of matter from the ear, it would be right to pour in tepid water night and morning, and so at least to try and keep it clean.

The horns of tho male are sometimes of enormous size. I have seen them eight inches in diameter at tho largest part, and weighing sixtaon pounds. Those of the female are email and sharp, resembling the horns of - the goat ; in fact, but for tho bonis aniT line silky wool at the roots of the hair,' they might readily be mistaken for dee r. They feed upon the short nutritious grass which grows upon tho treeless rii'ges nnd ra vines along the snowy range, and when fat weigh from one to two hundred ronuds.

When pursued they make a break for tho highest point of rocks in sight, where they stand looking curiously at the hunter as he slowly picks Inn way upward to get within shooting distance. When that lies boon gained, however, the sheep hnve disappeared ; nor does the tired sportsman get another glimpse of his game until he has reached tho cliff ho has justAlet, where they may be seen standing on some point higher up on the mountain, wd still beyond rifle shot. Should the lt.unter have persever nuce nnd plenty of muscle, he will prob ably follow the'ra to flie highest pinnacle of "the range to find nt lust that liis climbing has been in vain, nnd that the game he has been following so faithfully and hopefully have in;T3teriously vanish ed from his Bight. The only successful method of hunting the mountain sheep is to get above them, unseen, and, if possible get a hhot be fore being discovered. In this way the herd becomes confused, uot knowing which way to run, and sometimes four or live may 'bo killed before they recover themselves. Once started, however, Jmrsuit is useless. Throwing back their leads they throw themselves into space as if shot from a cannon, and iu a few minutes are miles away, taking leaps of twenty or thirty feet, nnd hardly ever making a mishap, however rapid and headlong their flight.

A healthy liver secretes each day about two nd a-half pounds of bile, which contain a great amount of waste material taken from the blood. When the liver becomes torpid or con gested, it fails to eliminate this vast amount of noxious substance, which, therefore, remains to poison tho blood, and be conveyed to every part of the system. What mnst be the condi tion of the blood when it Is receiving and re taining each day two and a-half pounds of poi son ? Nature tries to work off this poison through other channels and organs the kid neys, lungs, skin, etc. i but these organs be come overtaxed in performing this labor, in aOdiiin to their natural functions, and cannot long withstand the pressure, but become vari ously diseased. Tlie brain, which is the great electrical center of all vitality, is unduly stimulated by the un healthy blood which passes to it from the heart, and it fails to perform its office health fully. Hence the symptoms of bile poisoning, which are dullness, headache, incapacity to keep tho mind ou any subject, impairment of memory, dizzy, sleepy, or nervous feeling, gloomy forebodings and irritability of temper. The blood itself being diseased, as it forms tho sweat upon the surface of the skin, is so irri tating and poisonous that it produces discolored brown Bpots, pimples, blotches and other erup tions, sores, boils, carbunclos and scrofulous tumors. The Btomach, bowels, and other organs spoken of, cannot escape becoming affected sooner or later, and costivoness, piles, dropsy, dyspepsia, diarrlirt'S, female weakness, and many other forms of chronic disease, are among the necessary results.
