r HOME, FARM AND GARDE). Before filling up vacant places in the orchard with young, trees, it is best to think whether the full-grown trees now standing will not, with good man uring, bring more fruit than a larger number would. Most of our orchards were planted too closely, and the tree roots interlace so as to rob each other of what fertility each should have. Although butter alone is nearly in digestible, 3-et the relish that good but ter imparts to bread makes it more healthful than the bread alone would be. The human stomach will digest almost anything that is eaten with a relish, though scared- anything that is not. Tiiis is a point which the objectors against the use of butter should care fully note. Mr. T. Greiner, in the Farm and Garden, says that the easiest and quick est way to destroy the weeds that gen erally start about the time when the potatoes are up so that the rows can be seen plainly is by a thorough use of harrow or drag. He places great em phasis upon this, and deems it far more ffiective than the cultivator and hoe, at less expense. The pudding which should invariably accompany a boiled dinner to the table is made in this way: One pint of sweet or sour milk, two teacups of corn meal, sifted: one teaspoonful of soda, dissolved in hot water; add two slices of stale cake, crumbled very fine and mixed with the meal; boil for three hours in a bag: serve with a common feour pudding sauce. Western corn-growers persist in planting corn after corn. The result is that they have bred a worm which eats the roots, and which lives in the ground from year to year. As it is not migra tory, its existence depends on having corn planted on the same iield in suc cession. Good husbandry, which de mands rotation of crops, will therefore rid farmers of this pest. C. H. Johnson tells Wm Fruit Grower that br going carefully over the ground several times each season and burning all plants showing raspberry rust he has succeeded to such an extent that no more than half a dozen cases of the dis ease appeared last year in the whole of Lis three acres devoted to this fruit, while another, at some distance, "lost almost his entire stock without knowing the cause.1' The practice of some of the best farmers now is to keep pigs through the summer on green food, cut and carried to the pens, with a little grain, and what milk can be spared after butter making. Spring pigs are thus made to weigh two hundred pounds at seven months old, and, except in the last month, they get little grain. The best time to sell such pigs is at the begin ning of cold weather, usually in October. Topnoody. It was Monday evening, and Top noody unfolded his paper and began reading to his wife of Wijnrins. "Who's Wiggins?" she asked. "Don't you know who Wiggins is?" "If I had I wouldn't have asked you." "Well, Wiggins is the party who predicted that a great storm was com ing." "And did it come?" "No, my dear." "He isn't as good as I am, is he?" "In what way, my dear?" "As a prophet, of course." "How, my dear?" "Why, I told you this morning if you didn't order that load of coal up before live o'clock there would be a storm when you came home, and it didn't come until after I went after it, and I :m just tell you. Topnoody, if you don't pay more attention to the house and stop forgetting things, and wearing my life out. and loinr- all you can to add to my burdens, and neglecting your household obligations in every- way. and doing even-thing you shouldn't do when you know X want you to do some thingl Avant you to do when' I want you do it, just because you think I am a wpman, and can't take, my own part jus,t thesame as if I was a man, and could do just as I pleased, ,and " But' Mr. Topnoody dropped his pa per, and making a grab for his umbrel la, withdrew, and went down town te talk over the weather with the boys. . The Drummer. Death of an Old Negress. A correspondent from Woodburn writes us of the death of old Aunt Sarah Mallory, which took place last Monday, the 26th, who is represented as the oldest person in the count, or in the State, at the time of her death. Her age is placed at about 133 years. She was brought from Virginia oj'Shradach Vaugh in 1800, and was then in-her forty-ninth year, and has lived in .the neighborhood of Woodburn ever since.. She made the trip from this county to Virginia, and return, three different times on f oot.The last trip was made after she was 100 years old. She was never sick in her life, and even her death was not preceded by any sickness; she seemed merely to fall asleep, and died without a struggle. Our correspondent is a reliable gentleman of Woodburn. Howling Green (Ky.) Democrat. A student of the University of Ver mont expects to become a raving ma niac in the endeavor to find out why, if biennial means once in two years, tri ennial once in three years, and bi-weekly once in two weeks, tri-weekly does not mean once in three weeks. A man in St. Tammany, La., treed a wild-cat, and set lire to the under growth to smoke him out. The fire got away and burned forty panels of fence for a neighbor, and the wild-cat got awav also. A hotel clerk named Briscoe, Stumped his foot out in 'Frisco, It hurt him like thunder, But the pain was got under, By St. Jacobs Oil rubbed on histoo. A conductor who lives at Belair, Got hurt, being thrown on a chair, They took him away, But in less than a day, St. Jacobs Oil made him all square. The attorney for a Maryland railroad which killed a passenger last fall was try ing to effect a cheap settlement with the father of the victim, and finally said: "Now, sir, was not your son almost dead , with consumption?" "Yes, sir." "He would have died anyhow within a month?" "Yes, within a fortnight." "Then, why do you demand .? 1,000 damages?" "Well, theease is right here. If he had died at home I should have got a .f20 coffin, had a quiet funeral and put in three hours work cutting corn the same afternoon. Being he was killed away " from home and the news spread around, we had to keep dressed up for four daj's, buy a K coffin, hire a regular hearse, and feed and lodge over twenty re lations who had no call to show their noses. It's a damage of at least f500, and the other half won't niore'n pay his debts and get a headstone up." He got his money. .. Mr. Jonathan Bowers of Blanchester, O., writes : " I am 72 years of age. I keep Guysott's Yellow Dock and Sarsaparilla always in the house. A dose now and then makes me feel like a boy. It gives me a good appetite and keeps me from having dyspepsia." Style is the only frame to hold our thoughts. It is like the sash of a window; a heavy sash will obscure the light. Ed monds. Our Progress. As stages are quicTriy abandoned with the completion of railroads, so the huge, drastic, cathartic pills, composed of crude and bulky medicines, are quickly abandon ed with the introduction of Dr. Pierce's " Pleasant Purgative Pellets," which are sugar-coated, and little larger than mus tard seeds, but composed of highly concen trated vegetable extracts. By druggists. Mr William Bush, living in Corsicana, Texas, recently buried his wife and four children in the same grave. They all died of measles, within two days of each other. Consumption Cure. Dr. R. V. Pierce: Dear Sir Death was hourly expected by myself and friends. My physicians pronounced my disease con sumption, and said I must die. I began taking your " Discovery" and " Pellets." I have tib'ed nine bottles and am wonderfully relieved. I am now able to ride out. Elizabeth Thornton, Montongo, Ark. In Belfast, Me., the wife of the Rev. Mr. Libby, bed-ridden for two years, announces herself as suddenly cured by prayer. A Druggist's Story. Mr. Isaac C. Chapman, Druggist, New burg, S. Y., writes us: "I have for the past ten years sold several gross of Dr. William Hall's Balsam for the Lungs. I can say of it what I can not say of any other medicine. I have never heard a cus tomer speak of it but to praise its virtues in the highest manner. I have recommended it in a great many cases of Whooping Cough with the happiest effects. I have used it in my own family for many years ; in fact, al ways have a bottle in the medicine closet ready for use." .- The Parisian florist Bays that spring fe the very worst season for selling flowers. " Your Skin Cure is superezcellent. It is fast curing my daughter's ring worm, which had spread all over her body." Mrs. E. L. D. Merriam, Blue Hill, Mass. Drug gists keep it, $1 per package. Let our lives be pure as snow fields, where our footsteps leave a mark but not a stain. Mme. Sicetchine. "Dr. Benson's Celery and Chamomile Pills, are worth their weight in gold in nervous and sick headache." Dr. H. H. Schlichter, of Baltimore. It is well enough for a physician to rec ommend elephant's milk to patients, but the next thing is to secure the address of a foundry engaged in its manufacture. The Golden Bloom of Youth" 1 may be retained by using Dr. Pierce's "favorite Prescription," a specific for "fe male complaints." By druggists. Character is higher than intellect.
