Fowls. Fowls to be fattened, should be shut up in flocks of twelve, in a light airy pen, five by six feet ; feed them three times a day all they will eat (no more) on scalded horse feed. Mix with this plenty of powdered charcoal. At night throw them all the corn they .will pick up. Fur nish plenty of gravel and pure water, and in one week they will do for market. The yellow legged fowls will always look best when fat. Preserved Orange Peel. Clean carefully; cut in thin strips; stew in water until the bitterness is extracted; drain off the water and stew again for half an hour in a sirup of sugar and water, allowing half pint of water and a pound of sugar to each pound of peel. Put it aside in jars, and keep it in a cool place. If desired, a little cinnamon and ginger may be stewed with the peel, but it is more delicate cooked simply with sugar. . liemon peel may be prepared in the same manner, either alone or mixed with orange peeL These form pleasant "rel ishes" eaten with cake or bread, or if chopped finely when prepared they form excellent flavoring for puddings and pies. Pits fob Potatoes. Pits for potatoes should be made on dry soil and where there is no danger of water standing in the spring. Our own plan is to make a deep dead furrow with a plow, and then throw out the soil on each side so to make the bottom of the pit about three feet wide. Cover the potatoes with four or five inches of straw, and then throw a light coat of soil, about sufficient to cover the straw, leaving some ventilators at top. Just before winter sets in, put on another coat of straw and cover it with earth. This second coat of straw holds dead air between two layers of earth, and will keep out the severest frost. Agriculturist. "WELt-FiiAvoKED Btjtteb. How can it be expected that butter of good flavor can be produced from pastures foul with every strong-flavored weed ? From early spring, when garlic abounds, up to fall, when the golden-rod and ragweed cover the pastures and meadows, cows rarely get a bite of grass or glover free from admixture with weeds. And when it is known that these strong and often dis agreeable flavors concentrate - in the milk, and that every impurity in the milk seems to concentrate in the butter, how can it then be otherwise than the great bulk of butter coming to market Bhould'be poor in quality, and poarer still in profitable returns to the farmers? Ilere is the strongsst argument for clean pastures and meadows, and suehf arming as will raise feed and not weeds. Agri cultural, m A Delicacy. Leaves of various kinds impart most pleasant and delicate flavor in the various dishes prepared for the ta ble. Peach, almond and laurel leaves are richly charged with the essence of bitter almonds. They must, of course, he used with caution; hut an infusion ot these leaves may be readily made and used by the tea-spoonful. It is said that the leaves of the common syringa are useful for flavoring and that theytaste like cucum bers, and may be used as a substitute for salads. The young leaves of cucumbers have a flavor like the fruit, and leaves of celery flavor soup as wen as the stalks. The young leaves of the gooseberry are recommended as an excellent addition to bottled fruit. Current leaves flavor not unlike the fruit; so also the leaves of the orange, lemon, and citron. Keeping Cabbages. "We make a deep and wide " dead furrow" with a plow, in dry, sandy soil ; and then lav the cab bages in it, packed close together, with the stalks up. Then thrw the earth back on to the cabbages. The cabbages should be dry and the weather cold, and care should be taken that the furrow left on the .side of "the row of cabbasres should be cleaned out, so as to carry off tno water, xi no water fjets to toe cab bages, and the heads are sound, large, and Lard when put in, we have never experienced any difficulty in keeping them perfectly until spring. And there is nothing that our sheep relish so much. The only trouble about raising cabbaees for stock is that they usually command so much more in market than they are worth to feed out, that it is difficult to resist the temptation to sell them.

As a general rule the bear and buffalo will not attack man but in spring the wolf flies at every liv ing thing he sees. Horses are his usual prey, and them he pursues with almost human cunning. lin. 1 t at a vvnen a Dana. 01 wolves discover a horse, they encamp at 'some little dis tance, all the troop squatting on their hams except two old fellows, who sally iortn towara tne norse. He is frighten ed at first by his visitors; but they gam bol so pleasantly in the field, and look so innocent and friendly, that by de grees his terror subsides, and he con tinues to graze. Then the wolves slowly seperate, one going to the front of the horse, the other to his rear, and both frisking about as amiably, and apparent ly as unconcerned as before. Slowly and cautiously they approach the doom ed steed witn equal steps; when they are within springing distance they can cover over twenty feet at a bound both dash at him together, one at his head the other at his hamstrings. Horses are proverbially helpless under some circum stances; this is one of them. The most the poor creature does is to turn round and round uttering cries of pain, In few seconds the wolf who attacked him from behind this being the main attack has cut the sinews of bis legs, and he falls helplessly to the ground. Then the whole pack come rushing down, howl ing, and each eager to tear a morsel from the living carcass. There is little left for the vultures. A Careless Distbtbtttiok. The Treasurer of the Hall and Elton Manu nfacturing Company, of Wallingford, (jonn., oicen Drmgs pacsages 01 money from New York or New Haven to the firm, and when he has business North goes through on the express train with out stopping throwing the package out to an employe stationed near the track to receive it. The treasurer came up on the noon express train, and finding his colleague m waiting, tnrew out a pack age containing $6,000. He didn't throw it quite far enough, and it was struck by the train and riDDed on en. the green backs being distributed with great loose ness. The money was gathered up as far as possible, but at last accounts $600 was missing. Crops. The cereal crops of the United States for 1871 aggregated 1,650,000,000 bushels valued at 81,000,000,000. About 125,000,000 reached the seaboard. Of the latter quantity New York received about 80 per cent, and Boston, Philadel phia and other ports the remainder. These crops are mainly transported by canal, but the tendency is toward more extensive transportation by rail. It is es timated that, during the present year, 18,000,000 bushels will be moved entirely . and 85,000,000 bushels partly by rail, leaving on the basis of last year's crops about 82,000,000 bushels to be moved wholly by water. No noose is good new., as the man , Mid when be was reprieved. How They Save in Germany. Each German has his house, his or chard, his roadside trees, so laden with fruit, that if he did not carefully prop up, and tie together, and in many places hold the boughs together with wooden clamps, they would be torn asunder by their own weight. He has his corn plot, his plot for mangel-wurzel or hay, for potatoes, for hemp, etc. He is his own master, and he therefore, and every branch of his family, have the strongest motives for constant exertion. You see the effect of this in his industry and his economy. In Germany, nothing is lost. The produce of the trees and of the cows are carrried to market. Much fruit is dried for winter use. You see wooden trays of plums, cherries, and sliced apples, ly ing in the sun to dry. You see strings ot them hanging from their chamber windows in the sun. Tne cows are kept up for the greater part of ;the year, and every green thing is collected for them. Every little nook where the grass grows by the roadside, and river, and brook, is carefully cut with the sictle, and carried home, on the heads of women and chil dren, in baskets, or tied in large cloths. Nothing ot any kind that can poBsibly be made of any use is lost. Weeds, net tles, nay, the. very goose grass which covers waste places, is cut up and taken for the cows. You see the little chidren standing in the streets of the villages, in the streams which generally ruu down them, bu3y washing these weeds before they are given to tho cattle. They care fully collect the leaves of the marsh grass, carefully cut their potato tops for them, and even, if other things fail, gather green leaves from the woodlands. One cannot help thinking continually of the enormous waste of such things in England of the vast quantities of grass on banks, by roadsides, in the openings of plantations, in lanes, in church yards, where grass from year to year springs and dies, but which, if carefully cut, would maintain many thousand cows for the poor. To pursue still further this subject of German economy. I he vory cuttings of the vines are dried and preserved for winter fodder. The tops and refuge of the hemp serve as bedding for the cows; nay, even the rough stalks of the pop pies, after the heads have been gahtered for oil, are saved, and ail these are con verted into manure for the land. When these are not sufficient, the children are sent into the woods to gather moss ; and all our readers familiar with Germany will remember to have seen them coming homeward with large bundles of this on their heads. In autumn, the falling leaves are gathered and stocked for the same purpose, The fir-cones, which with us lie and rot in the woods, are carefully collected, and sold for lighting fires. The Diamond Wedding. In Bohenva the sixtieth anniversary of the wedding is termed the ' "Diamond Wedding Formerly it was kept on the seventy-fifth anniversary. It may be imagined few couples live to see their seventy-fifth wedding day come round, and probably that is the reason why fifteen years have peen taken off. In the last week of car nival this year an aged couple celebrated their Diamond Wedding m the Boman Catholic Church of the Holy Ghost in Prague. The husband is- eighty-five years old and the wife eighty-three. The old man a cooper by trade has lived and carried on business in tne same house for sixty years. The church was crowded, for, in addition to the interest attached to the wedding, Cannon Stultz, a much beloved and popular clergyman. gave an address, after which a mass was read. The old couple were led to the altar, as a mark of resnect. .bv masters of the trade of coopers, Kneeling down they repeated the promise made to each other sixty years ago, and then they re ceived the priest's blessing. Many per sons of distinction were in the church, and made the aged couple various pres ents in money and other useful articles. A banker in Prague presented them with six ducats. These coins appeared, to please the pair exceedingly, particularly the old lady perhaps they brought to her mind the wedding present which in some parts of Bohemia the bridegroom is bound to provide for his bride, and these coins threaded upon a ribbon, she wears upon her forehead. There is a couple in Prague of higher rank in life, who have been married seventy-four years and, should they live to see next carnival, it is said they will celebrate the veritable diamond wedding of "olden times. There seems to be every possi bility that they will be able to carry out their intention. Feast of the Tabebnalces. The Jewish feast of " Succoth," or Taber nacles, which continues for eight days, has been very honorably celebrated by the Hebrews this year. The first two and the last two days of this feast, are considered as holy days, on which no servile work should be performed, but the intermediate days, or " Choi Ham oide," as they are designated, are of no special import. The festival is a sort of a harvest feast, and the prayers and services used on the occasion consist chiefly of praise and gratitude to the Supreme Being for the bountiful and plenteous crops with which He has vouch safed to bless the land. One peculiar feature of this festival, which has, how ever, grown into disuse of late years, ex cept among the more orthodox Israel, ites, is the dwelling in booths, in com memoration of those booths or tents, in which the children of Israel dwelt dur ing their wanderings through the wilder ness. It is still the custom among the orthodox Jews to erect in some available spot adjoining their dwellings an arbor, having for its covering the green boughs of trees, and ornamented with flowers and growing plants. Many of these structures among the wealthy Israelites are very beautifully and tastefully con structed, the walls being decorated with rich damask hangings,along which creep ing plants and exotics in full bloom are to be seen. In these arbors the hospi talities of the season are lavishly dis pensed, and visitors, whether intimate friends or comparative strangers, are al ways welcome. T,he pious Israelite, surrounded by his family, takes his meals in this extemporized "booth" during the continuance of the feast, and the season of joy and thankfulness is fre quently taken advantage of for the re currence of family reunions. How an Indian Commits Suicide. Some time since an Indian by the name of Solomon Sau-ba, was found lying in the road, near the Cold water briflge, in the vicinity of Mount .Pleasant, Mich., with a fatal wound in the throat. He was brought to the village, and a post mortemj examination held, it appears from 'the testimony that he left home about daylight, to go to a camp of hun ters on the .fine river, near Millbrook. He.had gone about four miles from home, on the direct route to his destination. When found, his body was yet warm. but life was extinct. It seems that he unsheathdd his knife, $ which is a bowie, with a blade about eight inches long and one-and-a-half wide, and with one heavy stroke thrust it into his neck, just above the breast-bone, the knife passing down ward and a trifle to the left, to the depth of about five inches, and inflicting a wound in the aorta, about one-half an inch wide. The blood in the road indi cated that he had walked about six rods after the fatal stab before he fell. He bad sheathed the knife and held it in his right hand,' his hand resting on his breast. There were no signs of a scuffle, and no traces of foul play. The Siege'of Leyden. The siege of Leyden, Holland, which was commenced late in May, 1574, is a noteworthy fact in the history of that country. This city one of tho most beau- tilul in the JNetner lands, stood m tne midst ofbroad pastures and green mead ows that' had been reclaimed from the sea. Over these fertile fields many an eager eye was soon to be cast, in the hope that the waters might be seen again rolling over the land once their bed. From tho first. preparations were made for a long siege All the tood was put into the hands ot the authorities and doled out by wfight, half a pound of meat, and as much bread daily to a man, and a due proportion to women aud children. The Prince of Orange im plored the citizens to hold out for three months, assuring them that within that time he would devise some means for their deliverance. He had no force with which to raise the siege, but he held a position which would enable him to cut through the dykes and allow the ocean to reclaim the land which had been wrested from it. 'Better a drowned land than a lost land," exclaimed the patriots as they calmly de voted their fertile fields to desolation. The waters that should flood the Spanish camp would also bear supplies to the town. We need not dwell upon;the mere fighting during this siege. It was a repetition of the scenes of Harlem and Alkmaar. Early in August the sluices were opened and the waters began slowly to rise. The bread in the city was gone.the only food left was malt cake. On the 21st a letter reached the Prince from the . city, stating that they had fulfilled their promise. They had held out three months Two with food and one without. Their malt cake would last but four days longer. The Prince lay ill of a fever ; but from the sick bed he directed all the operations. Five miles from Leyden was the great dyke, called the Land-Scheiding. The piercing of the outer dykes had already laid the ten miles between this and the ocean under water. The besieging forces lay between this Land-Scheiding and the city. If this dyke were cut through, the Spanish intrenchments would be flooded, and it was supposed that the waters would float the boats ot the deliverers, laden with provisions to the very walls of the be leaguered city. It was now the 11th of September and still the starving town held out. On that night the Land-Scheiding was pierced, and the boats passed through the gaps. But it was found that another dyke three buartcrs of a mile be yond, intervened. This had been left un guarded by the Spaniards and was also breached. Yet now tho waters diffused over so large a space rose but slowly. -A strong east wind also was driving them back toward the sea. So passed a week from the time of the opening of the Land Scheiding, and the boats lay aground three miles from the city. But on the 18th the wind veered and blew a gale from tha northwest. The waters rose; the armada was again afloat, and came within a mile and tkree-fourths of the city. Again the wind veered, the waters fell, leaving the boats fast aground. In the narrow space oetween the town and the neet Jay now the beleaguering forces. They knew that the town was at its last gasp, and taunt ingly called the defenders cat eaters and dog eaters. "It is true' they replied, ana so long as you hear a cat mew or a dog bark, ye may know that we hold out, and w"hen all has perished but ourselves, we will devour our own left arms and fight you with the right. When the last hour has come we will set fire to the city and perish in the flames." Still the fleet lay stranded, and the city vanes pointed ever eastward. Until the wind changed the waters would not rise. At last on the second of October, a violent equinoctial storm arose from the west, dashing the waters in upon the land, over the ruined dykes. The vessels were again afloat for the city walls. Two strong forts lay in their way which might have disputed their advance. But the Spaniards were panic stricken at being thus invaded by the ocean, and poured tumultuously over.the narrow dyke which lormed the onlv catli to the nrm land. The wild Zealand sailors.almost amphib ious leaped from their vessels upon the retreating masses, and drove them from the crumbling dyke into the sea. So, on the morning of the third of October, Leyden was relieved. On the very next day the wind again shifted and drove the waters back. In a few days the land was again bare : and the work of recon structing the dykes was begun. Mormon Sunday Schools. The Mormon Sunday schools are uni que of their kind. The text book em bodies sanitary as well as religious teach ing. Here is a shot direct, tor instance, at all spiritious liquors, and all smokers or chewers of tobacco : " Q. Why are not hot drinks good for man ? "A. Because they relax and weaken the stomach and indeed the whole body. " Q. Why is it not good to smoke or chew tobacco ? "A. Because these habits are very filthy, and tobacco is of a poisonous na ture, and the use oi it debases men. Some of he Mormon hymns also are queer productions. Not all of them, however, as some of the best hymns f Watts, Cowper and the Wesleys are in their collections. What, however, would we think of our "Sabbath schools singing, in halting verses, the hope " That the children may live long. And be beautiful and strong Tea and coffee, and Tobacco they despise; Drink no liquor, and they eat But a very little meat, They ars seeking to be Great and good, and wise." Here is another jingle, the verses of which run smoother: " The Mormon father loves to see, Their Mormon families all agree; The prattling infant on his knee Cries, 'Daddy, I'm a Mormon.' " That will probably satisfy our reader's. Perils ot Infancy. It is not hard to destroy the life of a child. The vanity, or imprudence of a fond mother often causes the calamity she would have given her life to avert. or instance. what an army of children have been de stroyed by tne absurd custom of expos ing their necks and arms 1 And yet this fashion is tolerated because it is "so pretty." To illustrate the danger to which a child is thus exposed, it is only necessary to say that many children have been cured of habitual cough and hoarse ness by keeping their arms and hands warm. Another fruitful sourse o dan ger to the young, is,found in the foolish indulgence which will not withhold from them colored candies. An English chemist recently made an examination into the quality of these sweetmeats, and found that out of thirty -five different kinds, obtained from twenty different dealers, twenty-eight were colored with poisonous material. The poison most commonly used is some preparation of lead. The diseases caused bv lead poi son are among the most terrible which are produced by anything. This experi ment will serve as a warning to parents to practice greater care in providing sweetmeats for their children. If they are to be used at all, it is safer to make them at home. Then you know what they contain. Poor Child. A lame girl, who had not, for fourteen years once left the third-story back room in which she lived was among those who participated in the late children's excursion m -Phila delphia. When carried to the park she asked what the grass and trees were, and had to be told the names of the most common objects. She lay on the grass all day, drinking in the air and sunshine. and was seen to. weep softly every little wane jrom pure joy. The Selling of Goods to Minors for Credit. ; The following is the opinions of the editor of the law column of the Land and Law Reporter! An infant, as the law cans every one who has not attained the age of twenty one years, can not, as a general rule, make a contract which he may not dis affirm during minority, or within a rea sonable time after attaining his major- tv. If von sell him goods on credit and he resells them, and then refuses to pay, you are without legal remedy. If you buy a horse from him and pay him the price for it, and he refuses to deliver, your money is gone. Me is not liable to his promissory note or bond, nor for borrowed mney. If he undertakes to do a certain act and receive money in advance therefor, he cannot be sompelled to perform his promise after he has part ed with the consideration ; nor can the money be recovered from him, for it was the folly of the party to trust him. If, however, he retain the specific and iden tical consideration, and it can be identi fied, he becomes the trustee of the other party, and, as soon as he disaffirms the contract or refuses to perioral it, ne is bound to surrender it. So, if an infant has advanced money which has been parted with by the other party, and af terwards disaffirms the contract, he can not, if he has received any benefit from it, recover from the other party the ad vanced consideration. Thus, if he buy a large quantity of grain, and, after sel ling a portion, disaffirm his contract, he cannot, by returning the remainder, ac quire a right to sue the seller for a pro portional part of the price. An infant is not bound by his executed contracts if it be in the power of the other party to replace him in the same condition in respect to the matter as that in which he was before the contract, but in such cases he must return the consideration which was advanced to him. The general rule, denying the obliga tory power of an infant's contracts, ad mits of but one exception. He can make binding contracts for food, cloth ing, medical attendance, and such other necessaries as may be suitable to his actual condition; but, even in these cases, some care is required on the part of the seller. He is bound to ascertain that the articles which the minor pro poses to purchase, are actually neces saries, and that he is not already pro vided with them by his parents, guardian or friends. An infant who lives with his parents, or guardian, or other person under whose care he has been placed by them, and is properly maintained, can not bind himself to a stranger, or third person, even for necessaries. "No man, says Mr. Justice Gould, "Shall take upon himself to dictate to a parent what clothing the child shall wear, at what time they shall be purchased, and of whom." If a tradesman furnish arti cles which might be necessary if the minor were not already supplied by his parents, or, if confiding m false appear ance, he furnish articles too expensive or numerous for the minor's real condi tion, he is not entitled to recover pay for them. Infancy is no plea to actions founded in misrepresentation or fraud. If an in fant falsely represents himself of age or represents that he is purchasing for another who is of age and on the faith of this, another sell him goods, the sell er may retake the goods, or sue him for damages. A person may bind himself by a con tract made the day previous to his twen ty-first birthday and it has been held that "if one be born on the first day of February, at eleven o clock at night, and on the last day of January in the twentv-first year of his age, at one o'clock in the morning, he make a will de (rising land, it is a good will, for he was of age. ' It is also settled that an express promise, after he comes of age, to pay back money borrowed, or for goods pur chased during his minority, will bind him but such promise must be given voluntarily and with full knowledge that he then stood discharged from all legal liability. Poob Curates. Rev. Robert Collyer relates the following anecdote in illustra tion of the poverty and struggles often encountered and borne by the poor curates of London: "I had, in the sum mer of 1871, a talk with a clergyman in the church of England, who was then rector of a church which gave him a very fair living; but before this he had been a curate in London with a very large family, as ministers generally have, and an income of less than a hundred pounds a year not more than eighty if my memory serves me. It was desperate work, he said, to maxe ends meet so desperate that there came a time when there was not a penny or a crust left in the house or a pint of milk for the bairns. 'Then,' he said, 'I sat down to think what I should do; and when I made up my mind about the course I must take, I went up to my wife (as noble and true a woman as ever this world heard of) and said, 'My dear, we have done our very best and this is the end, Now, I will tell you what we must do. We are citizens of London, have paid our rates and taxes right along, and are entitled to all the help there is. We will go to the poorhouse '.to-morrow morning and ask them to take us in. We have a per feet right to go there, and we will go She said, "That is right," and began at once to get ready for the poorhouse, but that day 1 got a letter from some one, inclosing hve pounds. There was no signature; I don't know to this day who sent (it, but that five pounds saved us from taking that step, and tided us over to quarter day. Schools fob Scolding. Some evi dence given before the Poor Law Com mittee in the earlier part of the present century shows that the street language was in iormer days taught as an art. "About two years ago," says the witness "there was an old woman who fcept night school, not for the purpose of in structing children, but for the sole pur pose of teaching them the street language that is, to scold: this was for females particularly. One girl according to this curious declaration to me, would act tfye part of Mother Barlow and the ether Mother Cummins; these were the ficti tious names they gave. The old woman instructed the children in all the manoeu vres of scolding and clapping their hands at each other, and making use of the infamous expressions they use. This led them into the most disgraceful scenes. When these children met, one entered into the department of the other, the next day they were prepared to defend their stations and to excite mob." It -was Hebs. A St. Louisian at Yaucac, Peru, writes: "I witnessed very interesting ceremony recently. It was a man giving a deed of a piece of property to a woman. They first read a papei in the Indian language, and, after going through a lot of murmuring, the governor took her by the hand and led her out to the field. She then lay down on the ground. All the natives gathered around and cried, Possession I posses sieta !' They then took her into the yard and every room in the house, where they went through the same process. Finally she got down on her knees, hugged each ene around his legs, Kissed the hands, and the performancewas over. The first chapter of a western novel has the following: "All of a sudden the girl continued to sit on the sand gazmg on the briny deep, on whose heaving bosom the ships all went merrily by freighted oh I who can who can tell with how mnnli sr ami anmxtr atii. minA avid v ber and emigrants, and hopes and salt Dsn. Sham Champagne. An immense amount of so-called champagne is drunk. No less than lOY.UOO baskets of this wine have been landed in New York alone during the first seven months of the current year, while vz,vw dozen have been im ported at Boston. The total annual transportation is estimated at 200,000 dozen at least, or 2,400,000 bottles. If it is inquired how much of this is first quality wine, the reply must be, perhaps hundreth part, and of the remainder probably three-fourths is a spurious unwholesome mass, made'up for expor tation from drugs and spoiled wines. As for the quantity of champagne that finds its way into the market branded ' Veuve Clicquot" it would be a toler able safe assumption that not one dozen of the genuine brand ever reaches the United States. In the first place the vineyard is a small one. In the second plice, two-thirds of the whole vintage is secured by contract for the Court of Russia. In the third, place, the other sovereigns of Europe and the wealthy aristocracy compete for the remaining one-third. It is evident that under the circumstances very little of this wine can find its way across the Atlantic. But this makes no difference, since nothing is easier than to make bogus champagne, unless it be to sell it. The unbounded, indeed almost sublime credulity, with which the lovers of good living smack their lips over detestible doctored mix tures, and go into ecstatic reveries while pondering the label is worthy of admira tion. Adulteration is a profitable busi ness with all imported wines, but cham pagne affords the widest field for this branch of commercial enterprise, and it is fully availed ot. The celebrated Champagne Charley" probably never drank anything rarer than the product of the fragrant turnip or the Jersey apples, to which sugar candy, the aerating mac hine, and sundry well known receips from the drug store, impart volatile and sparkling appearance and that capacity for evolving excruciating headaches, which are generally supposed to be in fallible concomitants of the genuine ar ticle. Champagne of commerce would, as a rule, be dear at twenty-five cents a bottle we were nearly saying a dozen but it readily fetches from two to five dollars, andrthe higher the price asked, the more faith is usually reposed in the brand. And while there can be no possi ble objection to a taste for turnip juice, which is harmless, though not perhaps an'-exhilirating beverage, it is ssarcely worth while to disburse coins of consid erable value upon de"coctions of turnip juice, plus the ingredients of a headache and a bilious attack, and nothing else, However, "mundus vult decepi;" which being interpreted means that the public will drink bogus champagne at the rate of 2,500,000 bottles a year, and if not good for themselves, the benefits accru ing to the medical profession prove the truth of the proverb that it is " ill wind that blows nobody good." Why Beef is Dear in England. The London News says: "Mr. Clare Sewall Reid. M. P., a member of our legislative body, who has taken a deep interest in all matters affecting farmers and stock owners, stated at a meeting held at Norwich the other day: 'During the last five weeks there have been re turned 10,000 cases of cattle and 50,000 cases of sheep affected with the foot and mouth disease in England, and he would ask any gentleman present whether those figures represented half the number of cases that existed? What did a farmer do who had, out of a herd of twenty, three bullocks fallen down with the disease? Why, ha makes a return of the three bad cases only, when, as a matter of course, the other seventeen were sure to have the disease, If they put at the lowest figure the loss upon each diseased bullock 1, and upon each sheep os. there had been, during the last five weeks, a loss to the owners of stock, in Norfolk alone, of 22,500, That was ten times worse than any cattle plague they ever had, or ever should have.' In Somersetshire, 154 fresh outbreaks were reported last week, while in Worcestershire there was an increase of 99. As regards Scotland, the activity of the local authorities has had the effect . of subduing the foot and mouth complaint in its ravages; still in a few counties Dumfries, Kinross and Fife several additional cases, have been brought to light. It is still more pleas ing to report an appreciable absence in its most virulent form in Ireland of the disease the country from whence comes the bulk of our live stock, it -would. indeed, be a disaster of no slight mag nitude to tho public were the herds of Irish farmers to suffer to the extent at present prevailing in England. Db. Dowleb's Alligatob. A writer in the New Orleans Picayune met some body who was present at Dr. Dowler s experiments with the aligator, and this conversation ensued : " Dr. Dowler's alligator !" says 1 ; "I don't exactly comprehend." "Well, "says he, "about twenty years ago Dr. Dowler, of this city, called the wise men of the medical proiession 10 see mm mase pnysioiogi- . a , " . 1 " -1 ; cal experiments on a big aligator. 'lien- tlemen,' says the good old doctor, want to prove to you the existence of a diffused censorium ; in other words, that the brain is not confined to the cranium (the alllRator winked his eye, as much as to say he knows vihat he is talking about.) You will perceive that when put this coal of fire on the back of this cold blooded reptile he deliberately reaches over and pulls it off with his fore foot. Now, I carefully sever the head of the reptile from the body ; I re place the coal of fire, and the same in telhgent foot pulls it off again. Ergo, the censorium is diffused the reptile is brain all over, and brain means mtelli gence, and intelligence means sslf-pro tection." "And you believe that story ?" says I. " Believe it !" says he, " why I know it; 1 heard the lecture and saw the experiments; and what's more. I'll be durned if that alligator's head didn't look around and wink as know ingly after it was cut off as it did be fore." For any information about Railroad Bonds, you should write to Chables W. JjASSLEB. JSo. 7 Wall St. JN. X,. The National Life Insurance Com pant of the United States ot America, was Chartered by Congress in the Summer of 1868. Since that time, with a capital C$1,000,000) larger than any other lite in surance company in America, it has been the leading stock company in the country, if not in the world. Its charges for in surance are only about three-fourths those of Mutual comDanies. while it has nearly two dollars of assets for every dollar of liability. This fact is worthy of special consideration, as there is as much differ ence in the value of insurance policies as there is m the value of railroad bonds, Its management is in the hands of E. A Rollins. Ex-Commissioner of Internal Revenue as President; Jay Cooke, Chair man of Finance and Executive Uommittee E. W. Peet, formerly of the Mutual Life Insurance Comnanv of New York as Actuary, and J. M. Butler as Secretary, with a Board of Directors of National renutation. It wants an efficient and reliable agent in every town in the conn try. where it has not one already em cloved, and its commissions for business are both liberal and continuous. Cor respondence with reference to insurance or employment may be addressed to the branch office in Philadelphia, where the business of the Company is transacted The Company is worthy the largest pat rcnase. and an agent snouia oe em- ployed in this vicinity if there is not al I reaay one nere. von The Investment of Savings. A prominent New England banker having sold to his customers a consider able amount of Northern Pacific Rail road bonds decided to make an exami nation of the accessible parts of the line of the road, to see for himself the charac ter and progress of the work, the quality of the company's lands, the nature of the country traversed, and the prospects of the enterprise generally. He spent three months of the present season in making the tour.going first to the Pacific coast and visiting the route in Washing ton Territory, along the Puget Sound Basin and Columbia Valley, to the west ern slope of the Rocky Mountains, then returning eastward and spending consid erable time in Dakota and Minnesota. After thorough examination he can- eludes: 1. That in not a single par ticular, so far as he can judge, do the publications of the Railroad Company overstate the advantages of. the route. while in many regards those advantages exceed any published statement ; 2. The work is advancing both from the East and the West at a satisfactory rate ; 3. Intelligence, honesty and energy mark the management or the enterprise in tne field; 4. A large and lucrative traffic awaits the completion of the various sec tions of the line ; 5. The resources pos sessed by the Northern Pacific Railroad Company, in its munificent grant of fer tile land with accompanying privileges, are more than sufficient, when properly developed, to cover the cost of building and equipping the entire Road, and pro vide depots, docks and other facilities; The belt ot country along the middle of which the road runs, and whose trade, travel and business are naturally tribu tary to it. embraces the finest body of unoccupied land on the continent ; 7. With efficient management (which seems to be amply guaranteed by the high character and well -known experience and ability of the Directory), the lands and traffic of the company should render its first mortgage bonds one of the safest of investments, sure to rise much above par in market value on the completion of the road and the closing of the loan. Now that Government bonds can no longer be purchased except at such h?gh prices as to reduce the rate ot interest to about 5 per cent., Northern Pacific Rail road bonds, with their real estate se curity, have become a favorite means ot investment. As they are issued in de nominations as small as one hundred dollars, persons of small means can pur chase them as well as capitalists ; and as they are registered as well as coupon, money invested m the former is perfectly protected against fire, theft, or other loss. The semi-annual interest on the egistered bonds is paid by gold checks sent regularly to the post-office address J of the holder, in any part oi tne coun try. The rate of interest is seven and three-tenths per cent, gold, or about 8 in currency. The bonds can be ordered through almost any bank or banker, or directly from the Financial Agents cf the Northern Pacific Railroad Company, Messrs. Jay Cooke & Co., New York, or Philadelpnia. Com. Badly Off. A Western editor relates that he once stopped at a restaurant in Washington, and, noticing that the waiter was uncommonly sober, asked him if he was sick. "Yes," very curtly, "I is." "What's the matter?" "Why, sir, Washin'ton's the wus place ever I see. When it's dry you can't see where you're gwine, and ween t 2 you can't g, ' RntTonTAi.

All physical debility proceeds either from a derangement of the functions of the assimil.iting, secretive and vital organs, or from a sluggish constitution. In either case, and also in cases where both causes exist, the Bitters will invariably pro duce an immediate and salutary change in the condition of the patient, and eventually effect a complete cure. None ot the dangerous alkaloids, too often administered as tonics, can be otherwise than deleterious under such circumstances, and to give mercury is positively crimi nal. The direct effect of the great vegetable specific will te manifested in an improved appetite, a more obeerfdl frame of mind, a gradual return of strength, an increase of flesh, and a healthier complextion.
