"Yes," responded the pedestrian, indif eutly. "Had your breakfast yet?" "Not yet." After a few minutes more profound silei the restaurateur, with an eye to business, c tinued: "Now, I've just got the best place aroi here ; won't you just step in and have bre fast?" "I think I will," murmured the Strang as he suffocated a smile of prospective r ture. Then he entered the saloon, took a seal a table pretty near the stove, rubbed hands together, and carolled : "Now, then, for dejeuner a la fourchet just favor me with a synopsis of the daintie He was soon the possessor of a program] "Is this porter-house steak reliable ?"

A Mistake in the Name.?The steai Helvetia, of the National Line, some ye ago, was on her way from New York towa Liverpool, when she came up with a Du snip staggering along under ail sail, ana ing, perhaps, eight miles an hour. As weather was fine and the sea comparativ smooth, the captain of the Helvetia dei mined to pass near enough to the Dutchn to speak to him. As, however, the ship i steering rather wild, it was not prudent to too near, and the vessels were in pretty 1< hailing distance, when the Dutch captain gan the task of hailing through his speak trumpet. > "Shteamer ahoy!" "Hallo," replied the captain at the top his voice. "Vash shteamer vas dot you call ?" s the Dutchman. "Hel-ve-tia!" shouted the captain, divid the word to give it due significance. "Go to hell mit you yourself," was the inc nant response. "You dinks your big sht& er insults somebody?" and the Dutchn sheered off, disdaining to hold any furt parley with the steamer, which soon s ahead and left him far behind. ' " + A Serious Obstacle.?A young darl had conceived a violent passion for a nei boring mulattress, and taking her one nij behind him on an old farm mule, set out Georgetown to have the ceremony of m riage celebrated. But in endeavoring to n igate a mud hole on the Georgetown hill, mule apparently lost his power of locoi tion, and the darkey got down to examine to the cause of it. Unfortunately, he got close to the animals hind legs, and an un pected convulsion of the mule's extreml shot him out to the side of the road witl violence which resembled the discharge o cannon ball. "What's the matter?" inquired the pi pective bride, astonished at these hurr movements. "Matter! dar's heap de matter. Dis w din' ain't a comin' off." "What's de reason it ain't?"

A correspondent of the Charlotte Observer has this to say in regard to what may be ex'h*8 pected by those who visit "Cleveland Springs," e^. near Shelby, N. C.: kjj Attracted solely by the health-preserving 3e8' and health-restoring properties of the waters ^ a' of Cleveland Springs, formerly called Wilson's Springs, I arrived here about one week ce(j ago, and was delighted to find evidences of a till brighter future for this noble gift of a benefile^ cent Providence. Whether wisely or not, I jig will not here undertake to discuss; but certain it is, it has come to be almost a custom (n>t that the merits of watering places are deter nVtAt*n/ifA?i on/1 Ovfflnf f\f Ulllieu UlUiC UJ LUC LUttlttUlti uuu vavwuv w. ?Qf artificial improvements and hotel accommodations, than by the virtues of the waters themselves. Hence, many such places, whose ?aJh. ters are believed to be far inferior to those to be found in the three springs here, have, on t>? account of superior artificial attractions, com' raanded attendance quite equal to their capac^ ities to accommodate, while a moderate patronage has marked the past three or four seajgj1_ sons at this place. The absence of enterprise here has been owjj. ing to the fact that ever since the death of j0(j Mr. Wilson, some fifteen years ago, the property, not even yet divided among his heirs, ' us has been leased to first one and then another person outside the family, and thus, the lesrQU sees, not feeling-warranted ingoing to much vag expense, little or no attraction beyond the waters themselves has existed. As already intiin(j mated, however, a change for the better has taken place, and in evidence that it is for the better, I have but to mention the significant (jjj_ fact that even now, at this early date, the number of persons in attendance here is aljaw most equal to the maximum number at any time last season. , ^ jn By an arrangement with the executor of ?ect cstetej Mr. McBride Poston, one of the heirs, and a young man of energy and enterprise, is now in charge of these springs, ner and having secured the services of Col. L. S. , jars Williams, a most courteous gentleman of 1 rds your city, as superintendent, (than whom a tch better selection could not have been made), go- who is now here, there is every prospect that the the present season at this place will prove unely usually satisfactory to both guests and landter lord. Mr. Poston, backed by Col. Williams, rnn is making every effort in his power to please tras the visitors now here and to attract new ones, go The buildings have all been thoroughly white>ng washed, the floors of rooms scoured, the beds , be- overhauled and made comfortable, and the ing entire premises cleansed so as to please the most fastidious. (Parenthetically, let me remark, that scarcely a fly is to be seen about i of any of the rooms ; no flybrushes are used as , yet in the dining-room.) The primitive old , aid sDlit-bottom chair, used here from time imme- , raorial, is being superseded by those of mod- , ing ern style; the parlor is furnished with a new , and sweet-toned piano ; the tables groan with j lig- an abundant supply of choice fresh meats and im- good vegetables, all well prepared, with iced , ian milk at dinner and iced tea at sapper; and , her truly there is little to excite criticism. Ice- ( hot cream, too, we are told, is soon to be added j to the daily bill of fare, and it is quite evident ( that good living is in store for all who visit | Cleveland Springs this season.. Of the twen- , ty-five or thirty now here, mostly representa- j S tives of the first circles of society, all express themselves as being highly pleased, and the ( iar" splendid water of the white sulphur spring, , ^7* they say, like old wine, is even better, if pos- j ' e sible, than heretofore. During the next two ( or three weeks a number of arrivals arc ex- j m" pected from Wilmington and other towns and j ' ?? sections in both the Carolinas, and ere long , the place will be thronged. i a How the Kansas Exodus Begun.?How f a did this fever start ? The answer seems ready I to hand: A year or two ago, there came to ( "08- Vicksburg, a mulatto, some 40 years of age, 1 ied named Thomas W. Raymore. He opened an I intelligence office, and made it his principal 1 ed- business to induce Alabama negroes to come ! to Mississippi. Some eight months ago, it is 1 said that a railroad company, whose line runs ifin from St. Louis into Kansas, (not the Missouri j got Pacific) furnished Raymore with maps and at's gaudily colored circulars, giving eloquent des- ' criptions of Kansas. These circulars were headed with these words: "Show this to no 1 j White Man." The negroes, who are Free I ^ Masons in their way, kept the circulars dark. . The colored preachers got excited, and began a^" to preach "Going to Kauzy." From this i / slight flame came the conflagration. One of une c*rcu'are me"te description. It gives a j i gaudy picture of the "Colored Man's Home j. in Kansas." The colored pater farailias is i seated in a rocking-chair on the verandah of 1 yjr" his exquisite stone cottage, reading the Trib^ ? nnc. The sun, huge and golden, is indolently me pillowing itself on a rosy cloud in the western j " horizon. Through the lace curtains of the parlor windows may be seen the colored mater-familias languidly reclining on a sofa, lisall, tening to the music elicited from the piano by to- a dusky maiden whose slender fingers sweep ,o a the key-board. To one side of the cottage is lair a grove in which may be seen some fine deer, ow, Turkeys fly by at easy range. The corn is )ng growing high and luxuriant. It is the dream : my of an idealist, but to Southern Sambo it .was ure "de truf fer sho." The exodus idea is not J are dead. All through the South, and especially j ted in the Mississippi Valley, the colored people | j to are quietly discussing a future and mightier exodus. The return of homesick and disgusted emigrants has an effect in their immediate ' Pf" neighborhood ; but let a boat be sent down the !1 nc1, river to take away negroes, and the excitement 1 ,re- would be renewed ten fold. There is little ! ier? reason in this exodus movement. The prac- 1 . tical side is not looked at by the average ue- 1 3 | gro. He is ready for a "skursion" at any i1 y* J time and to any place. If the genuine fright j J "*a": the employers of black labor have expe- | e a ! rienced leads to the formation of a public sen- j1 timent which will intimidate extortioners, 1 rn. lead to a fair adjustment of rents, and im- \ , 0f i prove the political condition of the negro, ] jge much good will follow a temporary evil.?F.

Abundant experience, if such proof were necessary, show that there is more profit in feeding the larger breeds than there is with the Bmaller breeds of animals, whether for meat or milk. Of course, there are exceptions to this, as in all generahrules ; the small Jersey cow, for example, which is expected to produce an exceptional product of highly-colored and finely flavored butter ; but this does not affect the rule above stated. It is only necessary to consider that when we feed two animals of 700 pounds each, we have to supply the demands of two sets of breathing, circulating and muscular apparatus, which are considerably more extensive and expensive than those of one animal of 1,400 pounds. This is true of every animal that we feed, from the fowl and the pig up to the cow and fatted steer. Ten small Merino sheep, weighing eighty pounds each, will cost much more to feed than four Cotswolds of 200 pounds each, or five of 160 each. Besides the gain in feed, we have also a large advantage in the less proportionate amount of offal in the fewer larger animals than in the larger number of small ones. Where flesh and milk are the objects in view, this condition ought to have great weight in the selection of stock to be kept. , The choice, of course, will be restricted by the opportunities for keeping the stock, but it will not pay to keep Shorthorn cows upon a pasture where only small, active cattle can pick up a living; but where other things are equal, this consideration should be well weighed. ? + Balky Horses.?The Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals recommends the following rules for the treatment of balky horses: . . > 1. Pat the horse upon the neck, examine the harness carefully, first on one side then on the other, speaking encouragingly while doing so; then jump into the wagon and give the word go ; generally he will obey. 2. A teamster in Maine says he can start the worst balky horse by taking him out of the shafts and making him go round in a circle. If the first dance of this kind doesn't cure him, the secoud will be sure to do it. 3. To cure a balky horse, simply place your hand over the horse's nose and shut off the wind till he wants to go, and then let him go. 4. The brains of horses seem to entertain but one idea at p time ; thus continued whipping only confirms his stubborn resolve. If you can by any means give him a new subject to think of, you will have no trouble in starting him. A simple remedy is to take a couple of turns of stout twine around the fore-leg, just below the knee, and tie in a bow knot. At the first check he will go dancing off, and, after going a short distance, you can get out and remove the string to prevent injury to the tendon in your further drive. Cooked or Uncooked Food.?Professor Farrington, of the Maine State Agricultural College, has just concluded a series of experiments which were begun nine years ago by Samuel Johnson, then farm superintendent, for the purpose of ascertaining the relative feeding value of cooked and uncooked meal for swine. The trials have been carried on several months each year, the greatest care being taken that no food should be wasted, but that the pigs should be fully supplied. The raw meal was simply mixed with cold water and fed immediately, except in very cold weather, when it was given slightly warm. The result is wholly in favor of the uncooked meal for feeding. The Professor says that these experiments prove that the labor and fuel required for cooking food is more than thrown away. This accords with opinions we have held for a long time, and our practice has been confined wholly to uncooked food for more than twenty years. We are not particular to mix the meal and water only as it becomes mixed in the trough byjoouring milk or water upon the meal.?New England Farmer. For Weak Eyes.?A very simple remedy for weak eyes is recommended by a physician as follows : Get an ounce of elder flowers and jteep in one gill of water?they must be steeped in bright tin and earthenware; strain well, and then add three drops of laudanum ; bottle it tight, and keep in a cool place, then use it as a wash, letting some of it get in the eyes. Follow this and relief is certain. If -the eyes are painful or much sore, make small soft compresses, wet in the mixture, and bind over the eyes at night. If the eyes are badly inflamed use it freely; and a tea made of el:ler flowers and drunk, would help to cleanse the blood. Pure rock salt and water will strengthen your eyes if you bathe them daily in it. Where the eyes are severely taxed by one's jccupation, it is well to wash or dash them with water as hot as it can be borne, finishing the process by a few handfuls of cold water, to produce reaction. This just before retiring is strongly recommended by a physician df extensive experience, and has been found very jfficacious. ? ? < Keep the Cows Healthy.?It is now generally conceded that milk unduly retained in the udder of the cows is absorbed. The 3ow is decreased, and the animal gradually ^oes dry. Once this process begins, it is next to impossible to bring the cow back to her full flow. This is not so bad, however, as to allow the bag to become inflamed, and thus poison the milk. This being the case from any cause, the milk should never be used. The milk may not show signs of taint to the eye; it may even taste well, or so nearly right as not to cause alarm ; and yet it will taint the entire mess, and in the end the whole will become little better than poison when made into cheese, since then the putrefactive process still goes on. If the cow shows any tenderness or redness about the udder, or if it be hard or swollen, discard the milk until the animal is again all right. Alum in Chronic Dysentery.?In an obstinate case of this disease, Doctor Mader, a Russian physician, treated his patient with a solution of alum, which was injected into i i 1- ! Cl u Ills ooweis llUlueuiaWJIJ tuter cauu cvauuotiuii, and which be was directed to retain as long as he could. This remedy proved successful, the patient only complaining of a burning pain in the rectum while it was being thrown up, but feeling much relieved afterward. The motions then gradually began to present a Setter appearance ; no more blood or pus was noticed in them; they became more solid, and a fortnight after the first injection had been administered the patient was dismissed !vs cured. The strength of the solution was four teaspoonfuls of alum to a pint of cold water. How to Check Coughs.?Dr. Brown Sequard, in his late Boston lectures, says that there are many facts which show that morbid phenomena of respiration can always be stopped by the influence of arrest. Coughing, for instance, can be stopped by pressing the nerves of the lip in the neighborhood of the nose. A pressure there may prevent a cough when it is beginning. Sneezing may be stopped by the same mechanism. Pressing in the neighborhood of the ear, right in front of the gar, may stop coughing. It is also preventive nf hiccough, but much less so than of sneezing or coughing. Pressing very hard on the top of the mouth, inside, is also a means of stopping coughing. It is a sad sight to see an intoxicated per *l,? Hniii mn/>Vi mnrfl so is it to ?UIJ UU IliC Oti^VU A1V1I ?UWV?* M.W.* -?W - see a dull and sickly baby rendered so by the use of dangerous opiates? Dr. Bull's Baby Syrup contains nothing injurious and may be given to the most delicate baby. fiSaS" It is better to top dress an old pasture well set with grass, than to plough it up and re-sccd it. 45 Years Before the Public.

PAIN in the right side, under the edge of the ribs, increases on pressure; sometimes the pain is in the left side; the patient is rarely able to lie on the left side; sometimes the pain is felt under the shoulder blade, and it frequently extends to the top of the shoulder, and is sometimes mistaken for rheumatism in the arm. The stomach is affected with lo.?s of appetite and flia Kninole in orpnpral qrp y lliv UV1TWI9 il? w costive, sometimes alternative with lax; the head is troubled with pain, accompanied with a dull, heavy sensation in the back part. There is generally a considerable loss of memory, accompanied with a painful sensation of having left undone something which ought to have been done. A slight, dry cough is "sometimes an attendant The patient complains of weariness and debility; he is easily startled, his feet are cold or burning, and he complains of a prickly sensation of the skin; his spirits are low; and although he is satisfied that exercise would be beneficial to him, yet he can scarcely summon up fortitude enough to try it. In fact, he distrusts every remedy. Several of the above symptoms attend the disease, but cases have occurred where few of them existed, yet examination of the body, after death, has shown the liver to have been extensively deranged. AGUE AND FEVER. Dr. C. McLane's Liver Pills, in cases of Ague and Fever, when taken with Quinine, are productive of the most happy results. No better cathartic can be used, preparatory to, or'after taking Quinine. We would advise all whe are afflicted with this disease to give them a fair trial. For all bilious derangements, and as a simple purgative, they are unequaled. BEWARE OF IMITATIONS. . The genuine are never sugar coated.
