HOME, FARM AD GARDEN.
One of the first things a farmer's wife shouliUearn, if she has not already learned it as a farmer's daughter, is to drhe and harness a horse. Xecr carry scissors or a crochet needle in your pocket without taking the precaution to put the point of the sciors in. an empty spool; and the needle can be inserted in a cork. A llannel cloth dipped into warm foip-uds and then into whiting and ap plied to paint, will instantly remote all grea'e and dirt. Wash with clean water and dry. The mot delicate paint will not beinjured, and will look like new-. A large number of planters are en paged in the cultivation of figs in the Mate of ArLan i, and so far with suc cess Mr. 0. II. Wilson, of Drew Coun ty, has a tine orchard, and a s that his experience gne to show that ligscan be grown in Arkan-.w at a much cheaper rate than anyother place. German Way of Fry ing l!eef Steak: Pound out the steak a little, salt it and fry quickly with hot lard on both sides, l'our off the lard and place the steak on the dih. l'ut into the pan some fresh butter and fry with it some finely-cut onions, and pour this over the steak. Chopped cold cabbage and potatoes wanned up together, with vinegar, but ter, fait and pepper, make a nice relih. Equal quantities of ma-hed potato and mashed turnip, warmed m in the ame manner, are aIo nice. lJoiled carroH 'Heed thin and fried in pork fat. like pirMiips and otatoe. are equally as !Tood for dinner or breakfast. When the com on the ear is fed to hordes they maticate it much more flow Iy than if the com w as -helled. As i con-cquence, that on the ear is lictler dige-ted. A horse require more time to eat com oil the ear than if fed either meal or -helled com. If the hor-e can not hae time to mi-ticatea full feed of unshelled corn, then it is best to feed !oniething el-e. It mav be well to remind tho-e who grow w indow-plants that by returning them away from the window, and ar ranging a eocr of new -papers over them, they may be presetted from harm in SLTerely- cold nights. With the plants, a- with our-ehe-, it is not o much that cold come- in, as that the heat goes out, and often a slight protection w ill pre vent the c-cjpe of heat. One of the strongest cements, and cry readily made, is obtained when equal quantities of gutta percht and shellac are melted together and well stirred. This is best done in an iron cap-ule placed on a sand-bath, and heated either oer a ras-fumaee or on the top of a stove. It is a combination pos-cssing both hardness and tough ness qu ilities that make it particularly desirable in mending erockery. When this cement is u-cd, the articles to bo mended should be warmed to about the melting point of the mixture, and then retained in proper position until cool, when they are ready for use. Ex chnnqc. When a tree stands so that the shad ow can be measured, its height can be readily ascertained as follows: Set a stick upright let it be perpendicular by the plumb line. Measure the length of the shadow of the stick. As the length of its -hadow is to the height of the stick, -o is the length of the shadow of a tree to its height. For instance: If the -tick is four feet above the ground, and its shadow is six feet in length, and the shadow of the tree is ninctv feet, its height will be sixty feet C: i: 90: CO. In other words, multiply the length of the shadow of the tree by the length of the stick, and divide by (he lenth of tho shadow of the stick. Fi" pie makes a delicate dessert. Make a thin, rich crust for the bottom. Let it come to the edge, and bend it up ward just enough to hold the filling, but do not make a hick ridge of crust; it will not be eaten, and will spoil the good looks of the pie. For a medium si7cd h"e take half a pouudof figs, chop them fine, and cook with tl'e addition of a cup of cold water, or part cider and jiart water. If j on cannot get cider, a little brandy may be substituted. When the figs are soft" and smooth, put in tho cru-t and bake. Make a meringue of the white of the eggs, beaten stiff, with two tablcspoonfuls of sugar beaten with them; flavor with vanilla, and without taking the pie from the o en, as soon as the crust is done, spread this over the top, and let it form for a minute or two, not lonsrer. WEATHER--OR NOT. e admire the philosophy or the onfortnnata an. who, when ercrythiiig had been swept away, said, W ell, there'll be weather and taxes left, at any rate.- Alas! weatherla the -yellow dog" of all subjects; everyone thinki it his special right to try to better the weather, and hurl his anathemas against 01d Probabilities." and all who endeavor to atst him In regulating the weather.
