Bliss te'.ls the New York World that he bel'oycs tlie use of air slaked lime will check any tendency to rot in. potatoes. He has . for several years sprinkled a small quantit" o( such lime upon his potatoes at time of storing them in bins. Though he ventures no positive assertion, yet he believes such treatment lias resulted in checking any tendencies to rot. A mixture of twenty parts of hard soap, forty paits of kerosene, and one part of fir balsam has I een found very effective in destroying the insects which damage the orange tree. Trof. C. V.

Let us bear in mind that we do not cover strawberries to prevent them or the soil trom freezing The covering is intended merely to keep the ground fro en or to prevent those violent alter nations freezing and thawing which destroy the roots. If the soil freezes in "November and remains froen until February or March we should prefer the mulch not until the latter month. A very good plan is to spread the cover ing, whatever, it may be, evenly upon the snow. As the snow disappears the mulch is let down and linally rests lightly and evenly upon the strawberry plants. N. Y. Examiner. Phil's False Face. 'Poor Phil is in bed, and I am afraid will not be able to come down stairs for a week," said a Harlem man to a re 2)orter yesterday. "He met with an extraordinary accident on Saturday. You know Phil works in a printing oilice down town, and he gets his pay , on Saturday night. You can't expect much discretion in a boy not fifteen years old, but I -must say that Phil is a bigger fool than any other of my sons. Still, he is steady, and is a great favoi ite in the -office where he works, and there is no doubt that he has more good nature than all his brothers and sisters combined. "On Saturday he promised to .bring home a mask, or false face, as he ca led it, to little Jack, and when he started from the office for Harlem at seVen o'clock he resolved to spend a pait of his week's pay at a place in Grand street where he had seen some goats' faces. He walked up the Bowery. On his way he had to pass one of those places where, in addition to birds, they sell all the vermin they can lay their hands on. He stepped in to look around, and was enchanted by the beaut v of a blinking ferret. He in quired the price, and finding that he could purchase it for fifty cents, he made up his mind that it would be a choicer present for his baby brother than a mask. He bought it and board ed a train on the elevated railroad with the box containing the ferret in his hand. At one hundred and twenty-fifth street he cautiously opened' the box and sought to kiss the ferret. The af fectionate brute kissed him to somo purpose and then escaped, carrying the box, Phil says, with it; but tlrs may be an idea due to Phil's mental disturbance at. the time. Certainly, when Phil rang the door-bell, he had" nether box not' fei ret with him, but the children, see ing him from the basement window, shrieked delightedly: -Here comes Phil with the false face on him. It's all red!' "The wounds have not healed, but the doctor thinks that he will get alone all right." -V. Y. Sun. 3&2M ' A Hotel Man's Luck. Mr. J. G.

We are often asked, by anxious pupils of inquiring mjiiiis, questions relative to the value of composers: ,lWas Handel as great a? Beethoven 1" "Was Chopin superior to Schumann?" etc In order that we may be tormented no more, and that all doubts may be solved forever, we have compiled the" follow ing: tables of musical values: S'x Mlllarils make one Abt; ten Abts make one Schubert; two Schuberts' make one Chopin ; two Cho pins make one Schumann; four Schumanns makj one Handel; two H-n.le!s nuke one B.iCh; three Bichs make one Beethoven. It will be natural, therefore, that in future ex aminations in music schools the pupils w.ll be expected to rc.luce a symphony to noc turnes, or to answer questions like the fol lowing : "A man went to a concert to hear a symphony. Owini to the illness of the sec ond bass-drum plaer a suite was substituted. Just how much did the auditor lose; and what could he say at the box-ottice about it?

I., for many years the faithful and vigilant night watchman of the Bars tow Sto e Company's very extensive establishment, having been confined to his home several weeks by a very distressing illness, on re suming his duties again avails himself of this early op portunity for stating briefly a few plain facts. Mb. Watekmax, says: "A few months ago I was taken down with a severe sickness, which confined me to the house quite along time, and much of the time I was so very lame as to be unable to walk, and my left leg, from the hip to the toes, became monstrously swollen, and I suffered ex tremely from the constant intense pains produced by so great inflammation; I was trying the various so called cures, all the time, and was under the treatment of a physician seven weeks, bnt getting no substantial relief. At this time an old time friend, a pollccofflcer. called upon me, and during our conversation Informed me of the great benefit which he had obtained by the use of Hunt's Remedy, and urged me to try it. as he considered It a wonderful medicine. I commenced taking Hunt's Remedy, having very little faith that it would d much in such a stubborn case as mine, but my doubt was soon dispelled, for before I had taken one bottle I began to get better, the severe pains disap peared, the swollen leg gradually decreased in size, and I was encouraged to continue the useo the Remedy, and the improvement to my health continues, my appetite is good. I have regained my strength, and I am now performing again my duties as watchman at the foundry. Every night I go up and down stairs more than one hundred times, and am In good condi tion, and feel that my recovery is due to Hunt's Remedy alone. My severe sickness and terribly swollen leg was caused by the discasedstate of my kidneys, and I think that it is a most valuable medicine that will so speedily relieve and cure such a severe case as mine. I there fore most cheerfully recommend Hunt's Remedy to all afflicted with kidney diseases, as I know It to be a safe and reliable remedy. "Pbovidinck. Dec. 5, 1882. " JUST OUT.
