STRAWBERRY SHORTCAKE. an amateur ehortcake maker to ■ Out vor/ skillful, .hertcake eater. Of all the rich dainties of the epicure's dreaming, Your trout and your game may the appetite pall, But for three times a day, and a lunch intervening, A strawberry shortcake is better than all. And give me a wife that knows how to make it, (Or If willing to learn, that might well.) Now the way that the housewife should make it and bake it, To assist the unlearned, I am going to tell^ Stir Trtfo your flour some cream rich and golden ; No servant should do it, no hand but your own ; Bake quickly, and when it is out of the oven, Cut open und butter us soon as 'tis done. Then heap on your berries. How fragrant the odor, As crushed with sugar they lie 'neath your hand ! It may not be "food for the gods," but no mortal , A piece of this strawberry cake could with stand. Written by amateur, answer as of (Dur (Dlio. Poverty in Ute Pnrnonnge. The following remarks from the pen of Dr. Guthrie are recommended to the con sideration of our readers : The calamity which I stand in dread of, and which, next to the withdrawal of the divine blessing, is the greatest a Church can suffer, is that the rising talent, genius, and energy of our country mav leave the ministry of the Gospel for other profes "A scandalous maintenance," Mathew Henry says, "makes a scandalous ministry." And I will give another, equally true : "The poverty of the par sonage will develop itself in the poverty of the pulpit." I have no doubt about it. Genteel poverty, to which some ministers are doomed, is one of the great evils under the sun. To place a man in circumstances where lie is expected to be generous and hospitable, to open bis hand as wide as his heart to the poor, to give his family a good education, to bring them up in what is called genteel life, and to deny him the means of doing so, is enough, but for the hope of heaven, to embitter his istencc. In the dread of debt ; in many daily mortifications—meeting, perhaps, some old acquaintance, whom he dared not ask to his table, lest bis prudent wife should frown upon his extravagauce ; iu harrass ing fears what shall become of his wife and chidren when his head lies in the grave ; a . n . ia . n . cu l fc,vafcc d mind nnd delicate sibilities has trials to bear more painful than the privations of the poor. It is a bitter cup, and my heart bleeds for brethren who have never told their sorrows, coucenling under their cloak the fox that knaws at their vitals. MODS. ex a Salt folk.. A writer to the New York Express, un der date of June 20, refers in glowiug terms to the beauties of that now famous locality. He writes : The sky here just now, and the earth arc a paradise—and the heavens above, and the earth below, remind one more of Grenada and of the regions of the Alham bra and the Alcazar, than any other laud I have ever been in. Here rushes a cool ing mountain torrent passing right through the very heart of the city, almost under the walls of the Tabernacle—and there ripple innumerable little rills through the streets, making happy the grass, and the trees, and vegetation of all kinds, while overhead are the " Nevadas," the snowy hills tempering the hot rays of the now burning sun, if not by therinometrical admeasurement, by all the inspirations of the age and the delusions of the imagina tion. Heaven, earth, thus all tempt man to Mormondom, if not to be a Mor It is not a marvel that man is hap py here, and if slavery, as some socialists say, is the destiny of woman, even in the heart of Christendom, the slavery here is compensated for by this air, this earth, this sky, these grand surrounding tains, looming high up in the Bkies, and these fruits of the earth, that flourish man asks for them, from snowy mountain side to living meadow. mon. moun Gutta-Percha. Gutta means the gum or juice of a plant, ' percha means the particular tree from which this gum is procured. This gum is contained in the sap and milky juices of the tree. The way in which the gutta, or gum, is obtained is by cutting down the trees, aud ringing tlip bark at the distance of from ten to fifteen inches apart, aud placing a cocoa nut shell under the fallen trunk of the tree to leccivc the hardened sap that oozes out upon every incision. After the fend sap in collected, it is boiled to separate the gum from the water. When the gum haa be come well softened by boiling, it is rolled out in thin sheets, aud all impurities picked or rubbed off. This gum is remarkable for the ease with which it may bo manufactured. By immersing it for a few minutes in hot wa ter, it becomes soft nnd plastic, and may be moulded to any form, which it retains upon cooling. This was discovered by the inhabitants of the Malaysian Islnnds, who manufactured it into various domestic articles, some of which were buckets, tubs, basins, jugs, and Bhoes. Tho gutta-percha tree is a native of the Malaysian Islands and the neighboring countries, wlierj it attains the h i^ht of from sixty to seventy feet, aud from two to four foot in diameter. are There is no accounting for taste. ' We chew tobacco, the Hindoos lime, and the Patagonians guano. Our children de light iu candy, the Africans in salt, while the Esquimaux leap for a bit of tallow candle. To us turtles are a savory dish ; the French are great on frogs and snails ; savages on snakes. There is a pear tree in Danvers from which pears were taken two hundred and fifty jears ago, nnd the Salem Gazette aays it beara more fruit every year than can comfortably bo eaten by all the people in Danvers. HOOFLAND'S GERMAN BITTERS AND Hoofland's German Tonic. Tke Gnat Rimcdlii for all Olxaiti of the LIVER, STOMACH, OR DIGESTIVE ORGANS. HOOFLAND'S GERMA? HITTERS Is composed of th^puru j medicinally termed Ertrags) of Roots, Herbs, and Barks, making a preparation, highly concen trated, uçd entiroly/rcc/roè» all alcoholic admixture any kind. , % Hoofland's German Tonic Is a combination of all tbs tugamUeuts of the Bitters, with the purest quality of Santa Crus Rum. t)range, &e. making one of the most pleas ant npd agreeable remedies ever offered to the public. Those preferring a Medicine flee from Alcoholic admixture, will use Hoofland's German Bitters. Those who have no objection to the combina tion of the Bitters, as stated, will use HOOFLAND'S GERMAN TONIC ther are They are both equally good, nnd contain ths sum« medicinal virtues, the choice between the two being a mere matter of" taste, the Tonic being the most palatable. The stomach, from a variety of causes such as Indigestion, Dyspepsia, Nervous Debility, etc. is very apt to have its functions deranged. The Liver, sympathizing as closely as it docs with the Stomach, then becomes affected, the result of which is the patient suffers from scrcrul of the following diseases : Constipation, Flatulence, Inward Piles, Fulness of Blood to the Head, Acidity of the Stom ach, Nausea, Heartburn, Disgust for Food, Fulness or Weight in the Stomach, Sour Eructations, Sinking or Fluttering at the Pit of the Stom ach, Swimming of the Head, Hur ried or Difficult Breathing, Fluttering at the Heart, Choking Suffocating Sensations when in a Lying Posture, Dimness of Vision, Dots or Webs before the Sight, Dull Pain in the Head, Deficiency of Perspiration. Yellowness of the Skin and Eyes, Pain in Side, Back, Chest, Limbs etc. Sudden Flushes of Heat, Burning in the Flesh, Con stant Imaginings of Evil, and Great Depression of Spirits. The sufferer from these diseases should exercise the greatest caution in the selection of a remedy for his case, purchasing only that which he is as sured from his investigations and inquiries, pos sesses true merit, is skilfully compounded, is free from injurious ingredients, and has established for itself a reputation for the cure of these diseas es. In this connection we would submit those well-known remedies— or more I Hoofland's German Bitters, AND ' Hoofland's German Tonic PREPARED BY DR. C. M. JACKSON, PHILADELPHIA, PA. since they «ere first intro duced into this country from Germany, during which time they have undoubtedly performed more cures, and benefited suffering humanity to a greater extent than any other remedies known to the public. These remedies will effectually cure Liver Com plaint, Jaundice, Dyspepsia, Chronic or Nervous Debility, Chronic Diarrhu-a, Diseases of the Kid neys, and all Diseases arising from a disordered Liver' Stomach or Intestines. Thirty-five y DEBILITY. Resulting from any cause whatever; prostra tion of the system, induced by severe labor, hard "bips, exposure, fevers ac. There is no medicine extant equal to these rem in such cases. A tone and vigor is iiupnrt ed to the whole system, the appetite is strength ened, food is enjoyed, the stomach digests pro perly, the blood is purified, the complexion be comes sound and healthy, the yellow tinge is eradicited from the eyes,* a bloom is given to the cheeks, and the weak und nervous invalid be comes a strong and hculthy being. Persons advanced iu life und feeling the hand of time weighing heavily upon them, with all its attendant ills, will find in the use of this Bitters or the Tonic, an elixir that will instill new life into their veins, restore in a measure the energy and ardor of more youthful days, build up their shrunken forms, and give health and happiness to their remaining years. eal NOTICE. a well established fact that fully one-hnlf of the tenmle portion of our population are seldom in the enjoyment of good health, or, to use their own expression, "jicver feel well." They arc languid, devoid of all energy, extremely nerv and have no appetite. To this class of persons the Bitters, or Tonic is especially recommended.
