Practical Recipes. Oolcannon. This popular Irish dish ia usually made with cabbages and po tatoes, but cauliflower will make a more delicate dish. Take half as much cauli flower as potatoes, both of which must have been boiled previously and com pletely cooled. Chop them separately and very fine. Put a little milk and butter into a saucepan, and when boil ing hot, turn in the potatoes and cauli flower well mixed together. Place a flat tin or dish over them, and let them warm.through. Then remove the cover, and add salt and pepper to the taste ; make the dish boiling hot, and serve. Another way is to prepare it with strips of salt pork. Cut the pork into strips an inch long and as narrow as possible, and fry it to a crisped brown; then turn in the chopped cauliflower and po tatoes, and mix well with the pork strips and fat. Heat very hot, and serve on a platter. It is a delicious dish ; and a little vinegar is considered an improve ment to it. Orange Jelly. Peel of two Seville and two China oranges, two lemons, the juice of three of each, a quarter of a pound of loaf sugar, a quarter of a pint of water and two ounces 01 isinglass. Orate the rinds of the oranges and lemons, squeeze the juice of three of each, strain it, add the juice to the sugar and the water, and boil until it almost candies. Have ready a quart of isinglass jelly made with two ounces of isinglass, put it to the syrup, and boil it once up. Strain off the ielly, and let it stand to settle before it is put into the mould. ' Nottingham Pudding. Three large apples, one ounce of sugar, half a pint of batter for pudding. Peel the apples and take out all the core ; fill them up with sugar, and place them in a pie- 1 , s, .1 1.' 11 1 11 aisxi. VjOYtsr mem wnu u ugut unita, and bake half an hour. Make a Note of It. .Farmers have oeen urgea to Keep ac , counts with their several fields, charging each with expenses, and giving credit for productions. But only a few will '. do i They say, first, there is no use, and second, that it is impossible ; that - they are doing the best they can any how ; farming is their business, and they are going to keep at it, and no l-inoVkAfvm'nc will add to their tirodnc- tibns. To keep a set of books charging what is done to a field would require many pages, and it would include what thinking i done ; and more than this, such fractions of work are often be stowed mat it would require several entry clerks and a first-class bookkeeper, whose services would be worth at least $1,500 a year. A farmer can keep a memorandum , book in his pocket, and when he does anything for a field, say No. 1, he can charge it in hours, or in a money sum. And when a crop comes off it is easy to estimate its valve. We don't suppose that an exact balance can be obtained, but we know that with a series of fields an average one can be had. The great advantage of keeping accounts is in ac quiring a habit of investigation, which ... is precisely wnat larmera neea. au science is based on observation. Liet a farmer bring up his boys to become ciose ooservers. Swindlers. It is astonishing how many farmers are the victims of all sorts of swindlers, They can be induced to buy fruit trees of agents whom they never saw before, and pay two prices, with the probabili ty that the fruit will be small and taste less ; they will listen with open mouths to a smooth-tonged fellow describing a worthless invention or patent-right, and they will almost sign their names in blank, by which they get swindled out of hundreds of dollars. In fact there is no miserable game in which farmers cannot be induced to engage. But it is to be said that these victims do not read, and that they despise agricultural papers. An authorityisserts that there are many thousands of farmers in - Illi nois who have never seen an agricul tural paper, and ' this is true of many farmers even in the State of New York and in all other Statos. A few years ago hundreds of farmers were induced to sign what turned out to be notes of hand, with the inducement that they were to become agents of some wonder fully profitable machine. The only . remedy is for farmers to become inform ed, and to do so they must tafce some paper which is devoted to their interests .an read it every week. The time so ' spent will often save them more money than all their labor can bring. An experiment in Feeding Horses. The London Omnibus Company use six thousand horses. To economize in feed is an important matter, and has led to several tests, the result of which is recorded as follows : To each of three thousand of their horses they gave a daily allowance of ground oats sixteen pounds, ground hay seven and one-half , pounds, and cut straw one and one eighth pounds the hay and straw being ' cut into pieces about half an inch long. and well mixed up with oats in a little water, and so mating twenty-six pounds of food for each horse. And to each of their other three thousand horses they gave a daily allowance of whole or unbruised oats nineteen pounds, and uncut or whole hay or straw thirteen pounds, without any water, in our old- fashioned way, making thirty-two pounds of this food for each horse, - And what was the result? Why, it was soon discovered that the horse who was fed on the twenty-six pounds of ground oats remained in as good a condition and could perform just as much work and do it just as well, too, as the horse did who consumed thirty-two pounds of food as aforesaid thus showing a Baving of six pounds of food per day in lavor of bruised oats and cut hay. Bark Splitting of Apple Trees. What is the cause of this very destruc tive evil, and what the remedy to be used for it? When it once begins, ap parently but little can be done to save the tree. .Last year we had five beauti ful trees totally destroyed. The bark split up the side of the treo facing the south and southwest ; not one showed any injury in any other aspect. We tried binding up and various curatives, but all of no use. The trees were also killed ; only one plum tree was, how ever affected in a similar way. From the aspect of the tree invariably facing the sunny side of the tree, I becamo convinced the evil rests in some way in the sun itself. Had it been otherwise the split would have occurred in various positions. The evil cannot be due to too much moisture. Our orchard is well underdrained, and, being situated on sandy soil, could not well be sup posed to be anected by this cause. In thinking over the trouble I became almost convinced the splitting of bark was due to the heat of the sun s rays falling on frozen trees. Consequently I placed pieces of board against the south and southwest side of the tree. After thus shading them no more split ting took place. Cor. Canadian Farmer. IinjjGHATiON. The Bureau of Sta tistics reports that the number of immi grants who arrived in the United States during the quarter ending on the 30th of September last, was 120,783 of whom only 12,667 were skilled work men. Of the total number, 29,274 were under 15 years of age ; 15 and under 40 years, 7Z.494 ; 40 and upward, 19,015. These figures show that the mreat ma. jority of the immigrants are children or young men and women future citizens who are not too old to learn, nor inca pable of doing the work that ia waiting tor wem. Which Was Beaten! We were boys together, George Gib son and I. We were employed as sales men in a grocery store. Business being quite dull, our employer gave us per mission to close-the store, that we might attend a ball to be given that evening. I had been paying my respets to Miss Kate H. George also seemed interested in her welfare, and knew that I would be certain to send her my compliments sometime during the day, and request her company to the ball. In order to get ahead of me, he sent his invitation quite early in the morn ing. I was not in a good humor after George triumphantly showed me his note of acceptance ; so when evening came I determined I would not attend the ball or stay in the store. We closed about dark. George was ready to start, but had some moments to spare, when, as if to amuse himself, he picked up an old revolver, which we always kept about the store, and was pointing it at different objects in the room, remark ing how easy he could put a hole through it. When he pointed it at an oil can, which was quite full, I immediately in serted a pin near the seat of his pants, which caused him to pull the trigger. Zip! the ballet went through the can, and the oil commenced running out in quite a stream through the holes the bullet made. "Jump, quick, and stop the leak with your fingers!" I exclaimed. Ueorce Knew the mischief woul be to pay if our employer found the floor covered with oil, and he obeyed my or der immediately. Then a happy thought struck me ; I would leave him in that fix, and go and take Miss Kate myself. Amid a volley of oaths, I made my hasty departure. Arriving at the resi dence of Miss Kate, I informed her that George was not able to attend, and had sent me in his stead. Miss Kate ac cepted his apology, and we attended the ball together. It was late when returned to the store, and found "George still m his uncomfortable position, swearing at me profusely. The bullet had passed through the can. and he dared not remove either hand. I then procured an empty bar rel, intending to pump the oil out be low the bullet hole. In order to do this, it was necessary for him to be on the other side of the can. He agreed to the change if I would hold my fingers over the holes until he went around the can. This I was unwise enough to con sent to. . No sooner had he got me in this fix, than he proceeded to wash his hands thea taking up the lamp he went up stairs to bed. I was mad ; language cannot begin to express my feelings. swore, I entreated, I then tried to bribe him to relieve me. Like him, I dared not leave the can, for I knew it would cause my dismissal if our employer found the new floor spoiled with oil. besides the damage it would do to the goods. How I spent the remainder of the night I shall not attempt to describe it is sufficient to say I stayed there until morning. The King of the Washington Lobby, Sam Ward, is thus graphically sketched i -r- "I i 'wr . oy fiamuna xates: Who is this that cometh, not with banner and priest, as Tennyson has it, but with a composite manner, in which the gravity of the business man strives with the unction f the bon vivant and the humor of the raconteur a man of middle height, with his bald head firm ly implanted on his broad shoulders, with but little interval of neck a man of small and twinkling eyes imbedded behind high cheek bones a well cut nose, a great, sweeping mustache and a curling imperial, both pleasant; his well-cut, elosely-fitting suit of clothes is the dress of an H,nglish country gentle-, man, but his head is the head of an old French marshal. Put on him shako and he would pass for Pel Ussier or for old Bugeaud, of whom the Chasseurs d Afrique used to sing : As-tu vu la casquette, la casquette, Aa-tu vu la casquette da Pere Bugeaud,? He could sing it himself, too, and in accents that would do your ear good. For this is the famous Sam Ward, one of the finestlinguists, cleverest classical scholars and men of widest reading on this Continent, who has seen life enough to furnish material for a dozen novels and who is not merely the king of the lobby, but the prince of good fellows, What freak of nature threw o. W. into this age and into this country? He would have been thoroughly happy un der the Roman Empire, when Horace would have been charmed with his wit and Apicius would have envied him his skill in ordering a dinner. Somehow one can never think of Sam Ward and the stern simplicity of the Republic as going together in unison. City Rivalry. A case now pending in the St. Louis courts gives an amusing illustration of the bitter rivalry between the merch ants of St. Louis and Chicago. In the former city there is a hardware dealer who has been doing a large business in the sale of steel buggy springs at two dollars a pair. A Chicago firm, also en gaged in the hardware line, flooded the region around St. Louis with circulars oftering to sell the same article at $1.25 a pair. The at. Ijotiis man at once be gan purchasing his springs of the Chicago hrm, who, it is claimed, were selling their goods for less than cost to entice St. Louis trade to Chicago, and then sold them to his customers at handsome profit. The Chicago man encouraged by the demand for springs Z til. T ' - 1 . . 1 -l' irom oi. jiouis, maae a iurxner reauo tion in prices, offering them at one dol lar a pair, when the St. Louis man tel egraphed an order for 2,000 pairs, at the same time sending a draft to pay ior tnem. jjy mis time the Chicago firm began to be suspicious, and refused to send the goods ; but one of the firm being in St. Louis shortly afterward was sued for a breach of contract, dam ages being laid at $5,000. The St. Louis journals are joyful over this capture of one of the Philistines, and exultingly call attention to the fact that the public enemy must defend the suit in their own courts, which of course they con sider infinitely more honest than those oi Chicago, j New Arctic Exploring Expedition. The movement of the United Scien tiflc Societies in England to induce the government to undertake the expense of an arctic exploring expedition, is already well advanced. We learn, from Nature, that Sir Henry Rawlinson will address a letter to the president of the Royal Society, urging that that body taKe the lead in advocating the cause, In the mean time, it is stated that Mr. Leigh Smith proposes to undertake third voyage of arctic discovery in the spring, he has a line, strong steamer, the Diana, well adapted for the pur pose, and will undoubtedly achieve all that can be done in the way of discov ery in the Spitsbergen seas during the season of 1873, Mr, Smith having now become a veteran arotic voyager. Im 1871 he made the most remarkable voy age in that direction since 1707, discov ering a large extent of coast-line, both on the north and seuth sides of JNortii- east Land. He also attained the high est latitude that has been reached in a ship, except by Scoresby and the Swedes. In 1872, during a second ex pedition, he succeeded in taking a very important series of. observations of sea temperatures at various depths. The anticipated expedition in 1873 will be more fully equipped, and undertaken in a steamer instead of a sailing-vessel. The Piegan Indians war-path. are again on the Sun-Worship Among the Amazon Indians. A traveler has been exploring some of the tributaries of the Amazon, and has given us an account of the sun-worship of the South American Indians. The Peruvians, it will be remembered, wor- hiped the sun in the days of Pizarro ; so did the Mexicans belore the con quests of Cortez. . To this day the Am azon Indians annually set apart a fes tival for the worship of the sun. it is a question whether mi not this is a rem nant of a religion once held by a great part of the tribes of Mexico and South America. The traveler to whom we are indebt ed for an account of the South American sun-worshipers had been in search of gold in the mountains, where his quest had not been successful. This is the country in which Sir Walter Raleigh placed his. El Dorado. , It is believed by some that there are mines m the mountains which the Spaniards opened and deserted. The Indians of that country, it is' thought, have the secret of their location. On the return of ur travelers from their expedition, they came upon a town through which they had passed on their inward journey, and which they now found entirely deserted. Not a man, woman, or child was to be seen, and the malocca. or council-house, was stripped of all its trophies, flags, and feather dresses. " While, says the traveler, "we stood speculating on what had become of our friends, a sound fell upon our ears that seemed to issue from the depths of a distant cavern. We could tell it to be a chorus of voices, chanting some sad or solemn refrain. As we listened, it grew louder, as if the chant ers were drawing nearer ; and in the same degree it was becoming more joy ful. All at once a procession appeared atroroaching the soot, men marching two and two, with files of women inter mingled. "As its head emerged from among the thicK-standing tree-trunks, we rec ognized our old Zummate mends. dressed in all the gala of a grand holi day with plumed circlets upon their heads, feather armlets, and garters of the same, girt lust below the knee. "On reaching the malocca. they broke ranks, at the same time bursting into peals of joyous laughter. Then surrounding, they embraced us, the chief in a speech again making us wel come to their village." 'hey were returning from their an nual ceremony of sun-worship, to which every person, young and old. in the vil lage had departed. Warmoth. The correspondent of the Troy Timet, says that, with all his acts, Warmoth is a man of brains, of tact, of good breeding, and of remarkable personal magnetism. He has been catalogued as the handsomest man in Washington by more than a million" ladies ever since his arrival here. Instead of being shunned, he has been courted. He is a lion. ' Knowing how to make the most of his personal attractions, shrewd enough to conceal his inordinate vanity, he has made his stay here a continual ovation. In the lobbies of the Capitol ne is always the centre of a crowd. Jrer haps they are aot admirers in their soul. but externally they are, and it answers the same purpose. He has a joke and a retort for the senator, the Congress man, and the layman. He speaks of the chaos that crushes Louisiana as my little affair down there." and to his laugh there is always a responsive laugh, in the ballroom, which he af fects, he is still the centre of a circle. The wives and the daughters of the Congressmen imitate the aping example oi meir nusDanas and their lathers and who can blame them? "How charming and handsome he is, to be sure ! and so wicked besides that is the formula whenever Warmoth is the topic. The fact of the wickedness seems to highten the fascination. To be pre sented to Warmoth, in proper style, is as great an event in the history of young lady as to be presented to the President, and if he smiles and shows signs of being unusually interested, oh heavens, what bliss ! Water in the Earth. In years past an impression prevailed very generally that water could be tro cured by sinking a shaft in the earth at almost any point. A vast amount of fruitless labor and useless expense was the result of this belief, Uut now sci ence has advanced so far tliat men i a Die to tell with almost unerring cer tainty whether water can be obtained in any given dace bv suoh ftcancifis. peculiar geological formation and a cer tain relative position for the well are the prerequisites of success. Water finds its way from the surface of the earth to the interior through crevices and chasms in the rocks, and through the rocKS tnemseives when they are porous, In nearly all geological formations there are certain strata, often far down. which are water-tight, and these form the beds of the subterranean streams, As the water presses down from above it forces the streams along, and they either burst forth in springs or remain locked in huge reservoirs. When a well is sunk until it strikes one of these or hits a rapid current, the pressure drives the water to the surface, exactly- as in our cities the nuid in the storage reser voirs is forced into our bath-rooms and bed-chambers. The geysers of Iceland and of the Yellowstone Valley are at tributable in part to the same agencies, They come from natural artesian wells probably of vast depth, for the water in many cases is ejected at boiling heat, Steam, as well as hydrostatic pressure, is often the power that operates these extraordinary fountains. A Mormon Funeral. n r ri e . , . jirs. otennouse, m her lecture on Mormon life, told the funny story of Sister Picknel's funeral. The follow mg was Bishop Hardy's sermons "Wal bruthrun and sisters, you are all here I s pose, and so we'll begin. Wal, our sister is dead ; let her rest. Our sister has suffered and made others suffer, but now she's dead we'll let her rest. She opened the doer to the devils and let them in five years ago when her husband took his young wife. I told her then they would kill her if she did not take care, and now they've done it, She was a torment to her husband, and l guess if he d a know d that she d bin such a torment he'd never married her. Ain't that so, Brother Picknel ? "That's so, Bishop." "Wal, Brother Picknel, have you got anything to say? "Not as I know'd on, but s'pose I ought ter say sum 'at. and if do I shall be sure to offend some of the sisters, so I s'pose we'd better close the meetm . Thus ended the funeral ser vice. Changing a House's Gait. In Bar bary, pacing horses are held in such high estimation that the method of mak ing a spirited trotter shackle like a boat in a chop sea is reduced to a science. To make him rack easily, a ring of lead, covered with leather, is put around each hoof ; a cord from each weight ascends, and is fastened to the saddle, front and rear ; next, a strap runs horizontally from the fore to the hind foot on both sides. Being rather short, it is impos sible to make a long step. Restraint compels the animal to practice a new gait to progress at all. As soon as a habit is established of going ahead thus tethered, the desired amble is fully and permanently accomplished. ' In St. Louis two coops of chickens will pay a commission merchant more commission than a car-load of corn. The Catastrophe at Smyrna. The Smyrna correspondent of the Levant Herald gives an account of the melancholy accident in that town, which was briefly noted in the cable despatches a day or two later : "Un Sunday night, the Cafe Kivoto, built upon piles over the sea, broke down suddenly, during a performance given by a company of acrobats. The proprietor of the cafe says he only sold 108 tickets, but the people saved declare there were 200 persons present. Most of them were of the poorer class, and there were not many Turks there, or young men of respectable families. At 10 o'clock a loud cracking was heard, and within five minutes the entire cafe had disap peared under water. A few of the persons near the entrance contrived to effect their escape, and some persons saved themselves by jumping through the windows into the sea. The boat men rowed up in numbers, but their efforts to save life were in wain. Sureya Pasha, the Governor-General ; Ibrahim Agna, Chief of Police, and Tahir Bey, commander of the gendarmerie, who where at once on the spot, exerted themselves strenuously, but fruitlessly, with the same object. The profound silence which succeeded the piercing cries of despair told too plainly the terrible character of the disaster. The Catholic and Greek Archbishops were on the spot early the following morning, Yesterday forenoon the workmen of the Uuay Company were actively engaged in removing the roof of the submerged cafe. The search after the dead bodies was a sad spectacle ; the acrobats were withdrawn from the water in their showy costumes of the previous night ; the limbs of all the bodies were con tracted with pain. Two hearses were engaged the whole of the day in con veying the remains discovered to the hospital. Of the fifty bodies deposited at the Greek hospital, twenty-eight were claimed up to 4 o'clock yesterday afternoon, and eleven were claimed at the Catholic hospital. -Divers were busy at work all day, and every minute a fresh body was brought up. To-day they Recommenced their melancholy task at daybreak, and twenty more bodies were found. The total number of bodies found up to the present is eighty, and it is supposed there are still fifty more in the water. An English captain, two Turkish merchants, young man oi good connections, an Italian captain, a telegraph clerk, and some commercial clerks are among the victims. The feeling of grief and con sternation is general, and the ball adver tised to be held in the Casino has been countermanded. The police have closed all the other cafes built upon Eiles on the sea. One man saved has een rendered dumb. The company of acrobats consisted of seven persons, of whom three were women, and one of these latter onlv suiwivea. The Govrn- ment will institute proceedings against the proprietor of the cafe, who did not pay heed to the warning of danger which was given him in time. An Ingenious Convict. The convict Smith, who recently es caped from his cell in Sing Sing Prison, made use of a most ingenious device for unlocking his cell-door. It con sisted of a bar of wood, about eighteen inches long, from the end of which an other bar reached down at right angles, about four inches in length. In the lower end of this shorter bar a recepta cle was hollowed out for the purpose of holding a cunningly-contrived false key, and on the lower bar was arranged a twisted leather belt, passing .over up ngnt pins, and worked by a crank so nicely adjusted that by turning the crank the key would also be turned at the other extremity of the bar. Having made these arrangements, he quietly awaited an occasion when the regular keeper was absent and a relief keeper locked up the cells on his gallery. This keeper having convinced himself that Smith was in his cell, passed on to the other end of the corridor, and the most plausible theory is that while he was thus engaged Smith thrust the machine through the bars of the square grating above the lock, dropping it till the false key fitted in the keyhole, and then turning the crank, unlocked his door XT 7 1 , i , . (inrowmg me Dar ana crauK on nis Dea, where it was afterwards found) and quietly walked out past the keepers at the north end of the corridor. The oldest keepers at the prison are com pletely baffled by the brilliancy of this exploit, and assert that no such elabo rate method of escape has ever been devised by any other prisoner. As no body actually saw him pass beyond the confines of the prison, there is still a doubt existing as to whether he is "stowed away" within the walls or en joying his coveted freedom in the world at large. New York Paper, Old Churchill. A correspondent of the Portland Transcript says: Some, and they are not few, can remember old Churchill, and his peculiar ways. One day he was riding on horseback, when he was met by an old woman, who had not so many of this world's good things as he had. Taking out his- wallet he handed her a quarter of a dollar, and rode on. He had ridden only a short distance. when he began to soliloquize thus: " Now wouldn't I have done better to have kept that money, and bought my self something?" Wheeling his horse round, he rode back to where the old lady was stand ing, and said: , " Give me that money !" She handed it to him, wondering what he meant. Placing it in his wallet, and at the same time handing her a hve-dol lar bill, lie exclaimed: " There, Self, now I guess you'll wish you had kept still ! A Big Pile of Edgings Burned. For thirty years or more, says the Machias (Maine) Union, edgings and refuse wood had been accumulating in close proximity to the saw-mills in Whitneyville. The piles were of im mense proportions, one pile alone cov ering an acre and twenty to thirty feet deep. Jby careful and a low estimate this one pile contained 10,000 cords, The mill-owners have long desired to get rid of the edgings, but never had seen the time when they felt like afford ing the risk to apply fire. This winter, snow, ice, and water being favorable, after trenching and ditching and using all precautionary measures, fire was put into the mountain of wood a eb. 24th, Some people became alarmed, antici pating a sweep of the mills and of the whole town. Word came to Machias for help. The fire 'department dis patched one of their engines and men to care for it. The engine at Whitney ville was put in readiness. All day Monday the pile shrunk before the flame, and all night careful watch was had. The wind was favoroble, so that by Tuesday night the fire had made its conquest, the great pile had nearly dis appeared, and no damage occurred to the mills or property of any kind. By the removal of this pile of combustible material the mills are more valuable and the whole town is freed from great exposure by fire, which might oc cur most destructively in a summer drouth.

It has been calculated that of meteors bright enough to be -visible to the naked eye in a clear moonless nigh't the num bers that enter our atmosphere daily can not be less than seven and a half millions, and if we include those, that would be visible in a telescope, the cal culation would exceed four hundred millions. As there is no reason to be lieve that the region in which our earth moves is more thickly beset with mete oric bodies than other parts of the solar domain, and as the space swept through by the earth in a day is a mere point compared with the whole extent of that domain, the total number of these bodies that must exist around the sun is beyond conception. The hundreds of millions yearly burned up in our at mosphere, and the ashes of which add, it is estimated, one thousand tons weight to our earth in three years, will never be missed ! Besides the stray meteors, of which half a dozen, more or less, may be seen any clear night by watching the sky for an hour, there occur every now and then brilliant displays, known as star show ers or meteoric showers. It has long been observed that some of these show. ers areV periodical, recurring on the same. day of the year, either annually or after a period of years. The most remarkable thing about a star shower is that all the bodies composing it seem to come from the same limited region of the sky. Those that appear in the cen tre of the space blaze out and die away without seeming to move : the farther the appearance of a meteor from the centre, the longer and more divergent is its . path. The paths proceed from the centre in all directions like rays and hence it is called the radiant point of the shower. This radiation of the paths, however, is a mere appearance, due to perspective. The bodies are re ally moving parallel to one another but the one that is coming directly to ward the spectator has its path reduced to a point, while the paths of the others all round are seen more or less fore shortened, and all converging backward toward the vanishing-point.

PAUL, MINN., OR 33 FIFTH AVENUE cor 9th St., NEWYORE Eighty-five Miles of Solid Ice on Lake , Michigan. The propeller City of Fremont left for Grand Haven for the third time, but was compelled to return, after having penetrated the ice belt a distance of only fourteen miles. JJunng the high easterly winds the ice was never at any time out of sight of land. At this point since then it has constantly been added to, so that it now once more fills the bay. In view of all the facts that can be ascertained, we have no hesitation in saying that Lake Michigan at this point, where its width is eighty-five miles, is now entirely bridged over with ice vary ing in thickness from one to twelve feet. Never before in the memory of the oldest inhabitant has this been known to occur. It will require a high southerly wind of at least one week's duration to break up and drive this formidable belt towards the lower end of the lake and enable the steamers of the Engelman line to cross. In the meantime the Manistee and Messenger remain in the condition reported last week, off Whitehall, and receiving oc casional supplies of food from the shore. a cure foe ooKrsTJTvriT lojxr. For the cure of this distressing disease there has been no medicine yet discovered that can show more edence of real merit than ALLEN'S LUNG BALSAM. This unequaled expectorant for curing Consumption, and all diseases leading to it, such as affections of the throat, lungs, and all diseases of the pulmonary organs, is introduced to the suf fering public after its merits for the cure of such diseases have been fully tested by the medical faculty. The Balsam is consequently, recommended by physicians who have become acquainted with its great success. WHAT THE DOCTORS SAT Drs. Wilson & Ward, physicians and druggists, write from Centre ville. Tenn. : "We purchased Allen's Lung Balsam, and it sells rapidly. We are practicing, physicians, as well as druggists, and take pleasure in recommending a great remody, such as we know this to be." Pr. Lloyd, of Ohio, surgeon in the army during the war, from exposure, contracted consumption. He says : I have no hesitancy In stating that it was by the use of your Lung Balsam that I am now auve ana enjoying gooa neaitn." Nathaniel HarTis, of Hiddleberry, Vt., says : " I have no doubt it will soon become a classical reme dial agent for the cure of all diseases of Ihe Throat Bronchial Tabes aad Lungs." aiiiud wily, ju, u -, vi nvRuiuiu. 1 1111 . , .ays . "For three years past I have used Allen's Lung Balsam extensively in my practice, and lam satis fied there is no better medicine for lung diseases in use." Physicians do not recommend a medicine which nai no merit, wnat iney say aooui ALLEN'S LUNG BALSAM can be taken as a fact. Let all afflicted test It at once, and be convinced of its real merits. As an expectorant It has no equal. It is harmless to the most delicate child. It contains no opium in any form. Directions accompany each bottle. CAUTION. Call for ALLEN'S LUNG BALSAU J. N.

Hou- zeau maintains that not only does each group of animals possess a language which is understood by other members of the same group, but that they can learn to understand the language of other groups. His dog, for instance, perfectly understood hisjaailtry. Cocks and hens have one danger signal for the approach of a bird of prey, another for that of a terrestrial animal, or ior a man. When the latter was sounded, the dogs would rush out and bark, while to the former they paid no atten tion whatever. He therefore concludes that fowls have the power of expressing slightly different but closely allied ideas, and dogs can learn to understand these differences. ; The Atmosphere of Spring ; With every change of season we have a change In the hygienic character of the air. In the spring 1 is Impregnated, especially In low lying, wet dis trlcts, with mephltto vapors, which generate chills and fever, rheumatism, indigestion, bilious ness and diseases of the organs of respiration. It s therefore particularly necessary at this time of the year to invigorate and regulate the system so as to enable it to repel the morbid influences to which it is more or less subjected. The stomach should be toned, the bowels freed from obstruc tions, the blood purified, and the nerves braced and strengthened. This can be easily done. IIos- tetter's Stomach Bitters are everywhere procur able ; and In the whole range of remedies and pre ventives prescribed by the faculty or recommend ed through the press, there is not one that com bines in such an eminent degree great efficiency and perfect harmlessuess. It is a positive antidote to malaria. Whoever takes it habitually may breathe the atmosphere of the worst fever and ague locality without danger. Damp and chilling winds make little or no impression on the organization reinforced with this powerful vegetable invigo- rant, and consequently it Is a good safeguard against asthma, coughs, colds, and other pulmo nary complaints. It is not recommended as a remedy for this latter class of maladies, but simply "as a means of strengthening the system against the serial conditions and changes which so often pro duce them. As a spring invigorant and alterative it will be found extremely beneficial to persons who are peculiarly sensitive to unhealthy atmospheric nfluences. 12,000,000 ACEES! Cheap Farms !
