tlemen composing the Board of Public
Charities have carefully investigated
a numtier of subject which they,
deemed of sufficient imjwrtftDce to
lay before the Legislature. Among
them 'may be specially noticed Triton
Discipline a question now generally
occupying the attention of statesmen
and philanthropists throughout the
civilized world; the condition end
trcatmeut of - the insane and the
workings of that class of institutions
known as local charities, founded and
conducted for benevolent purposes.
These asylums are located .in various
parts of the State, mostly however, in
Philadelphia and Pittsburgh. Tbey
are performing an excellent work
relieving the sick, indigent, infirm
and neglected portions of our popula
tion. The General Agent has devoted
a considerable portion of bis time to
their inspection, the results of which
will apjear in his able report to the
Board, iff which be exhibits their
character and the large amount of
private charity bestowed upon hem,
This Board was organized during
my administration, and I have enter
tained a deep and lasting , interest in
its labors, lbe gentlemen who com
pose it voluntarily devote tbeir time,
without compensation, to" tbie noble
work of benevolence. The impress
of their intelligent efforts is every
where perceptible : and the large
annual contributions of the State to
charitable institutions have, under
their supervision and examination,
been properly and systematically ap
plied. The third volume of their reports
will be submitted at an early day. It
will present a large amount of statis
tical information; and many interest
ing facts and valuable suggestions
upon subjects of great importance. I
cannot too 6trongly commend this
Board the great regulator of State
charities to the favorable considera
tion of the Legislature, and recom
mend such appropriations for expenses
and additional enactments as may be
necessary to increase its efficiency.
PENITENTIARIES AND REFORMATORIES.
From a personal inspection of the
penitentiaries, I am able to bear testi
mony to the evidences that were
everywhere manifested of their gen
eral good management and excellent
discipline. '
Among the circumstances that
attracted my attention was the in
sufficient number of cells to carry out
the "solitary confinement," principle,
and the incarceration there of a num
ber of boys and youths for first offen
ces, and of females untrained in crime.
Sometimes tw6 or more in one cell
were thus unavoidably brought into
associations which could scarcely fail
to produce contamination of charac
ter and morals. . I would, therefore,
recommend that the Legislature
enable the courts, to sentence minors
and females to the county prisons,
where with proper teaching training
in some handy-craft business and
with due attention given to discipline,
the object of punishment would be
more effectually attained ; and the
jenitentiary, thus relieved, would
have cells sufficient for all ordinary
purposes. It is a great mistake in al
most all cases of minors convicted for
their first, and often trivial offense, to
send them to a State's prison; be
cause the punishment is less in its
effect than the idea of degradation in
the after-life of the prisoner. Such
persons sbould be punished in the lo
cality where the crime was committed,
and the disgrace would not be so
likely to permanently affect the char
acter after the discharge of the pris
oner. From 1826 to 1871, inclusive, only
three hundred and forty-six females
were received in the Eastern Peniten
tiary, and of this number one hundred
and twentr-aeven were minors.--
Tbese' Tacts would fully justify the
propriety of such action by the Leg
islature as has bean suggested.
The Western Penitentiary contains
ample space for present demands. : It
is conducted on the "combined"
system of "solitary and congregate"
imprisonment, the workings of which
are giving entire satisfaction to all
concerned.
The managers of the "Pennsylvania
Reform School" (late the Western
House of Refuge) propose to change
their location from Allegheny City to
a farm, containing 503 acres, in
Washington county, seventeen miles
from Pittsburgh, near the Chartiers
Valley Railroad, and adopt for its
government the best features of what
is known as the .'family system" of
juvenile reformatories. Ihcse will
mainly consist in the abandonment of
walls, bolts and oars tor conbmngtue
children, and in an earnest effort
govern them through sympathy and
kindness, and prepare them for useful
occupations.
Tbe Board will ask an additional
appropriation to pay for the land and
improvements.
SANITARY REGULATIONS.
I earnestly recommend the passage
of an act providing for compuhory
vaccination, which should have such
penalties annexed as would insure its
undoubted enforcement.
I also recommend an enactment es
tablishing a State Board of Health,
whose functions, shall be discharged
under the auspices or the legislature,
Such an organization would be indis
pensable to the vigorous and com pre
hensive execution of a law making
vaccination compulsory, and would l-e
eminently serviceable in enforcing
sucb other sanitary regulations as
might oe deemed essential to the pro
tection of tbe public against small-pox
and other contagious disease. The
State Board might be constituted
somewhat upon the model of the
Board of Pnblic Charities, with the
addition of local boards for the coun
ties, cities and larger towns. Theex-
pense of such a system would not be
worth a thonght, when ' compared
with tha value, of the benefits that
would ba conferred hv its operation
At all events it would be far less than
the cost in human lives annually
sacrificed bv the diseases it would be
designed to prevent It is not possi
ble to estimate correctly sucb values.
But for tbe purpose of illustration,
the calculation of an eminent physi
cian may be accepted. Dr. Ackland,
of England, sets down every death
by a preventable disease as a loss in
money of f 100, and f 12 for loss of
time and maintenance during the
period of sickness. According to
this standard Pennsylvania lost
within the last two years by small
pox alone more than $5,000,000.
The recent elections prove, by un
precedented , : majorities, ... that the
country reposes extraordinary confi
dence in the patriotism, sagacity and
integrity of the Republican party. In
response to this sentiment, that party
should discharge its sacred trust by a
wise, honest, economical nnd patriotic
administration of the government ; a
thorough reform of the civil service ;
the continuation of such duties upon
foreign imports as will secure and
enhance the prosperity of our domes
tie manufactures ; the reduction of the
scale of internal taxes to the lowest
degree" that would be adequate to the
maintenance of the public credit and
the gradual extinction of the nation
debt; the restoration or our loreigu

financial facilties for tbe requ rrmiuia
of business ; the encouragement and
rnrrnlatlnn f immipTAlion 1 the ifl-
creasc of the means of cheap land
and water transportation, witb a view
to the largest and most rapid devel
opment of the national resources ; and
such enforcement of the provisions of
tbe amended Constitution as will pre
serve peace in the States and secure,
beyond the touch of injustice and op
pression, tbe rights of all citizens.
. miring my administration toe Leg
islature has been in session three hun
dred and eighty-seven days; in that
time nine thousand two hundred ana
fortv-two bills, and one hundred and
fourteen resolutions, were passed, of
which eight thousand eight hundred
and forty-two bills, and one hundred
and thirteen resolutions, received my
approval ; six became laws without
my sanction, and three hundred and
ninety were vetoed. Tho vetoes aver
age a little more than one per diem
during the session, and all of which,
with tbe exception of four,;, were sus
tained by the Legislature. In addi
tion to niv six annual messages, I have
also transmitted to the Legislature
one hundred and 6ve special commu
nications. -,
The period for disconnecting my
official relations ' whh the General
Assembly having almost arrived," I
may properly avail myself of this op
portunity to acknowledge the general
courtesy I have received from the
successive Legislatures with whom I
have had the honor to hold official in
tercourse, and to express the profound
sense of gratitude I entertain toward
the peopleof my native State, for tbe
manv honors ther have conferred
upon me, and still more for the stead
fast confidence witb wbicn tney nave
supported me, and sustained my ad
ministration. To Hon. Francis Jordan, Secretary
of State; Hon. Frederick Carroll
Brewster, Attorney General ; Hon.
James P. Wickersham, Superinten
dent of Schools, and General Alex
ander Russel, Adjutant General, I
tender my warmest and special thanks,
for their "hearty accord and energetic
support I owe them not only a debt
of gratitude for their personal fideli
ty, but sincere and heartfelt com
mendation to the people, for the able,
efficient and eminently satisfactory
manner in which tbey have performed
all the duties that have been devolv
ed upon them in their several depart
menus. Col. Beniamin F. Lee, my
private Secretary, and his assistant,
Col William C. Armor, are descry
ing of honorable mention for their
zealous and faithful execution of my
orders.- My thanks are also due, and
they are earnestly tendered,' to the
clerks and other appointees in tbe sev
eral department for" their" uniform
courtesy and tbe zeal manifested oy
them for tbe public good.
It affords me peculiar satisfaction
to feel that my official honors and re
sponsibilities are shortly to be trans
ferred into the hands of a gentleman
who will sacredly guard the one, and
faithfully discharge the other. Ma
jor General John F. Hartranft has
signally illustrated bis courage ana
patriotism on many fiercely contested
fields of battle ; and qualities that
have made his reputation as a soldier,
have been no less conspicuous in tbe
pursuits of civil life. He will bring
to the discharge of his duties a large
and valuable experience in the man
agement of public affairs; and all
that is known of hisantccedentsmay
be regarded as a warranty for that
confidence of the people who have cle
vated him to the Gubernatorial Chair
by so large a majority. I bespeak for
him your hearty co-operation in guard-
ingand advancing tbe public interests;
and I earnestly invoke Heaven's
choicest blessings upon the people of
Pennsylvania that their abundance
may never be diminished and that
her honored name may shine in the
galaxy of the American Union with
increasing splendor forever.

Don't do it Dout advertise your
business , it's paying ont money to
accommodate other people : if they
want to buy yonr goods let them hunt
you up. ' .
Dont advertise, for it gets your
name abroad, and you are apt to be
flooded with circulars from business
bouses, and to be bored with drum
mers from tbe wholesale establish
ments all of which also results in so
liciting your order for new goods.and
money to pay for them.whicb is very
annoying to one of a dyspeptic tem
perament
Don't advertise, for it brings people
in from the country (country folks,
you know, are of an inquiring turn of
mind), and tbey will ask you many
astonishing questions about prices,
try your temper with showing them
goods, and even vex you with the re
quest to tie tbem up ; wbich puts you
to an additional trouble of buying
more.
Don't advertise; it gives people
abroad a knowledge of your town,
and they come and settle in it ;' it will
grow, and other business will be in
duced to come in and thus increase
your competition. In short, if you
would not be barrassed by niultitudi
ous cares and perplexities of business;
if you would avoid being bothered
with paying for and losing time to
read a great cumbersome newspaper,
just remain quiet ; don't let people
know five miles away where you are,
nor what you are doing, and you will
be severely let alone to enjoy the
bliss of undisturbed repose.-Gazette,

We have never failed la preventing
this practice by filling the ben so full
of something else that she don't want
to cat eggs.' .Wo. do it in this way
Put a vessel (a good three gallon
brass kettle is very convenient) over
tbe fire ; fill it two thirds full of water,
let tbe water come to a boil i take the
hen and cut her bill off smoothly and
nicely just behind her care, plump her
into tbe kettle, strip off tbe feathers,
take out ber in sides, pnt ber over the
fire in a steamer for two hours; while
sbe is there prepare the stuffing of
light wheat bread batter and a little
sage and parsley ; fill her very full
and lay the balance of. the stuffing
around ber like eggs in a nest ; put
her in the oven till quite brown, and
when the "gudc man" comes to din
ner, if be does not smile at this way
of breaking her of eating ber own
eggs, be aint a bit like my husband or
latbcr. A'uralAew Yorker.
A divorce was recently cranted a
couple in England on very curious
grounds. The parties were attached
to each other, but tbe husband's un
conscious mesmeric power became so
great that tbe wife dropped insensible
wben be came into ber presence.
Disguise himself as be would, she was
always affected thus by bis approach.
until living together became impossible.
THE HEsA WILL
" What!" muttered NoahBrennan,
gazing into Walter Adams' face, "do
you mean that you'll give me a home,
too that you will provide for me and
help me too :"
l es," returned tbe youtn nope-
fullv. " I could never be happy with
Agnes, much as I love , ber, if I
thought her dear old father had no
home. Come, we will Jive logemcr.
and be as happy as the days are
long." ... ,
" But your salary !" i :-r
" Is sufficient for us. -1 bave five
hundred dollars a year. We can live
on that and lay up something, too.
" Well, well take ber, love her
be good to ber make her happy
don't never" - .
Wlion the old man saw the joyous
fears streaming from the child's eyes,
he turned away and walked quickly
trom the bouse, but be was not so
quick but that be beard the; blessing
that followed him. And wben he
walked alone beneath the starry heav
ens, he wiped his eyes as thougn
something troubled him.

shjne, all day long.
" Do you pray God to help you to
love me now f " the old man asked,
after he had lived with Walter some
two" months. r V h : - f ' '
" Why. 'what do vou mean V ' Ag
nes asked in surprise. Y f t : 5
" Vou used t way so, for I beard
vou. returned Noah: "' ' "
A moment the young wife gazed
into her parent s face and sbe answer
pil whila she threw ber arms around
his nocki : '. - J - ; U
"Ob, I pray that you may be
spared to us for long years in peace
and happiness. " But--Iove you?
Oh, I could not help it, he loves you
very much, for he has told me so ma
ny times."
There was something more than
usual in the old man's eyes now.
One evening, as the happy trio sat
at the tea-table, Walter looked more
thoughtful than was bis wont
" What is it?" Agnes asked.
"Oh, nothing," the husband said
with a smile, "1 was only thinking.
"But of what?" .
Mnlr at1n HntMino thftt'a all '
"In the air, Walter ?" asked Noah,
" Yes. very high in the air," the
young man replied with a laugh.
" But tell us what it is."
" Well, I'd as lief tell you as not,
Mr. Osgood is to retire from our firm
in a few days. He is well advanced
in years, and has made a fortune in
tbe business, and will live for comfort
and health alone. He is not very
well of late years."
" And is that all ?"
"Yes."
" But what castle in tbe air is there
about that?''' J
" Oh, that isn't the castle."
: " Then what is the castle ?" urged
the old man."
" Why, simply this," said Walter,
laughing, but yet almost ashamed to
tell it " This noon Mr. Osgood pat
ted me on tbe shoulder, and, said be,
in playful way, "Walter I'll sell you
my interest here for fifty thousand
dollars."
" Ha, ba, ba 1" laughed Noan Bren
nan, "and you.thought he was in ear
nest?"
"No, no," quickly returned the
young man, "I did not think that,
though the two other partners would
willingly have me for an associate."
" But it seems to me that Osgood
holds bis share in the concern at a
high price."
O, no ; it is a very low one. There
is a clear capital of one hundred and
fifty thousand dollars in tho business
at this moment And tbmk or all
the standing and good will, which
goes for nothing."
" Ha, ha, ha," laughed the old man
again.
Then Walter laughed, and then
Agnes laughed, and then tbey finish
cd their supper.
On the next evening Walter Ad
ams came "in and sat down on tbe so
fa without speaking. Hs -was pale
and agitated, and bis eyes bad a va
cant, wandering stare.
"Walter!" cried Agnes, in terror,
"what has happened ?,'
" He's sfek." muttered Noah Bren-
nan. without looking around.
"Q, no ; not sick,'.' returned Walter,
starting up. "but I am ibe victim of
a miserable trifling."
"Eh, how ?" asked old Noab, turn
ing in bis cbair
" I'll tell you," said Walter with t
spasmodic effort "I had some long
long entries to post this evening, so
I remained in tbe counting room after
the rest had gone. I was still at
work wben Mr. Osgood came in and
placed some papers on my desk, say
ing, as be did so : 'Here, Walter,
these re yours.' And then he went
out When I bad finished fuy work
I opened the papers. Tbe first wasa
sort of inventory of what Osgood bad
owned in the business, and footed up,
in round numbers, forty-nine ; thous
and eight hundred and scventy-Gvc
dollars. The next paper was a deed
conveying the whole vast property
tome, and making roe a partner in the
concern upon equal footing with tbe
other two."
" Well," said the ,old man, thump
ing his foot upon the carpet and keep
ing time with his hands. "I don't
see anything very bad in that."
" But I do," replied Walter. "It is
cruel to trifle with mo thus."
There was something in Noah's
eye again, but be managed to get it
out, and be spoke thus :
" Walter Adams, whea young men
used to borer about my child, I be
lieved the same of you. " I knew of
nothing but this love of money, that
could underlie this action. My heart
had become hardened by it and my
soul darkened. But it was for my
child to pour tbe warmth and light
into my bosom. It was for ber to
keep before me the image ' of the gen
tle wife whom I had loved and lost,
but, alas 1 whooccupicdaplaceinthat
love second to my gold. It was , for
my child to open gradually, but sure
ly, tbe fount of feeling which had been
for a lifetime closed, I beard ber pray
for me pray tbat sbe might love me,
that she might bave belp from God to
love me ; and tbat was after I had re-
used to let her be your wife. I saw
ber grow pale and sorrowful and I
had done it and sbe loved me still.
Still she prayed to god to belp ber
help ber what? lle!p her love her
father I I was killing her, and sbe
tried to smile on me. Ane evening I
heard you both conversing in tbe old
hut My child chose misery and du
ty to her father, rather than break
that duty . in a union with a man
sbe loved. And you uttered a pray
er. You prayed that I might be
penniless. Stop I Hear me through 1
You would then show your disinter
estedness. I walked away and pon
dered. Could it be that I bad found
a man, who would love an old wreck
like myself, with no money? If it
were so, then tbat would break tbe
layer or crust from my eouL. I de
termined to test you. I had gained
a glimmering of light my heart bad
begun to grow warm and I prayed
frequently that I might not be disap
pointed. I went to tbe bank and drew out
fifty thousand dollars in bills. That
night my miserable old hut was set
on fire,or a caught fire. I shall al
ways think 'twas -my candle did it
But tbe old shell burnt down, and
room was made for a better building.
I came out with the wrong trunk, and
tho other trunk was burnt up. But
the monejr was'nt in it No, no. I
bad tbat stuffed into my bosom and
deep pocketsand all buttoned up, and
tbe next day I carried it back to the
bank, and had ft put with ft few tbqu
and more which I bad not disturbed.
And so my experiment commenced,
and I found you tho noble, true n.an
I bad prayed for. You took me when
you thought me penniless, and you
took my child to your bosom for just
what God had made her. And now,
my boy, I've paid Mr. Osgood fifty
thousand dollars cash for his share in
tbe business, and it is all yours. And
let me tell you one thing, my boy, if
your two partners -can raise fatty
thousand dollars more to invest just
tell 'cm you can put in five and twen
ty thousand more at twelve hours' no
tice. Tell 'cm old Noah ain't quite
ashore yet Tell 'em be has found a
heart, my boy ! . Come, here, Agnes
come here, Walter, God bless you as
you bave blessed me.
Nobody pretended that they had
motes in their eyes now, for tho occa
sion of tbe weeping was too plain.
Treats
t ef Heifers.
We neglect our heifers ; ; as well
might we neglect our cows, as the
treatment of the heifer tells upon- the
cow. Wo neglect our heifers, and
we begin early wben tbey are calves
They are too often left U. take care of
themselves after being turned out to
pasturage, only a little cold milk giv
en, and skimmed at that But skim
med milk is good, it contains casein,
whicb is wanted for muscle. , It
should, however, be well warmed, as
otherwise it is apt to lead to the
scours.
Shelter is one of the first things of
importance to a calf. It is not accus
tomed to storms, and its limbs hich
are tender, will suffer if it is not shel
tered. Here we are very negligent ;
we should accustom our calves to the
stall or shed begin early to fit the
babits of tbe cow. ' Tbe best feed,
aside from tender grass, is bran, oat
meal and milk. Tho iced should be
regular, once or twice a day, and in
small quautities, for it will not do to
fatten or pamper ft calf; this must be
avoided.
After being accustomed to tbe graaa,
wbich if it is clover is all the better,
little else need be given it Grass
contains all tbe elements neeessary to
growth ; it carries the whole calf suc
cessfully. But must be good grass
a clover meadow is tbe best and
the calf ought to be kept there till
tbe crop is cut, wbich should be early;
and this same clover, dried, should
be fed to the calf in winter, and it
needs little else besides. But you
must have, to do well, grass cured
with all tbe elements in a soluble
state. There are farmers who raise
their cakes in clover lots with suc
cess, who feed nothing else besides.
But, if it is necessary, feed bran, etc.,
as above indicated.
The first year is the critical time ;
that passed (successfully) there is lit- '
tie difficulty afterward. But there is,
some; care must be taken; tbe prop
er feed is to be given, rcgulary, and
proper shelter secured early in the,
fall. Indeed the old habit of running
to shelter in the snmmer must not be
broken up ; for now is the critical
time; tbe beifer is to be made a cow
at two years of age, and bad treat
ment or neglect will often defer this,
and tbe loss is a year's fodder. It is
true, the animal grazes during this
year, but she also will not make so
good a cow as if brought early into
tbe lacteal habit. Many dairymen
prefer a two-year old cow's first calf
to tbat of a three year old. Experi
ence says they are best for the dairy.
And in order to get them to a fair
size, it is necessary that tbey receive
careful attention. In this way there
is great profit in raising our own
dairies.
Having attained our object In point
of quality, in cows, tbe next consid
eration is to retain and improve on
qualities obtained, the reverse will as
surely deteriorate these qualities. In
tho first place, a cow giving milk
shonld have all the good feed she will
consume, summer and winter, with a
suitable allowance of pure clean wa
ter to drink, and good comfortable
stables during the winter, with ac
cess to shelter in inclement weather
during the summer and fall ; b milk
ed at regular intervals, by the same
milker; who shall perform the milk
ing in the least possible time to do it
thoroughly. American Stock Jour
nal Portable Coops for Fowls. A
V ermont correspondent of tbe Coun
try Gentleman says he has kept his
fowls during summer, fortbe last five
or six years, in portable coops on the
grass, moving them each mornin
He finds the plan convenient and
profitable. .His coops are cheaply
and easily made. They are twelve
feet long by four . feet wide on the
ground, the sides running to a point
at the top. A (tout four teet at one
end is inclosed for a roosting place,
and less space at the other end for
bests. To strengthen the sides he
nails a ' Atrip half way up on each
side, the 'ends of which extend, so as
to form handles for moving the coop.
In sucb a coop he keeps ten to twelve
bens and cock. They are allowed to
run at large wben they will do no
damage, but during most of the sum
mer arc kept in the coop.
Bkidle Bits for .Winter cse.
In cold weather a 'naked iron bit is
apt to bave frost in it, and the mo
ment it touches the inside of tbe
mouth of a horse or mule it is pretty
sure to xtick fast, and with the least
possible movement or change of posi
tion it is liable to tear the tender skin
of the mouth or tongue, and if the
movement is repeated, may cause
much suffering. Any one doubting
this may satisfy himself simply touch
ing bis ' tongue to a smooth bit of
frosty iron. Owners of horses or
mules would do well to see tbat the
bits in use during winter are perma
nently covered with gum cloth, leath
er, or even with a bit of muslin
something to prevent the iron bit or
its appendages from coming in con
tact with the inside skin of tho mouth.
, The Science of Uealth repeats
what we alt ought to heed when it
says. "Tbe more a man bandies up
to keep from colds the more he may.
Some persons do nothing bat watch
against exposures, and keep them-
selves yery busj. ' The best safe
guards are daily exercise in the open
air, and the Tree use of cold water,
taking care not to begin the use of
muffler. " r

from the impossibility of applying; remedies to
