Landed ValaatioBB 1b Kentucky. UepJ. Watts Kearney recently de livered a loner address before the Me chanic's and Manufacturers' Exchange at Louisville, of great ability and search. As showing the fluctuations in landed valuations in the various coun ties, we condense from the address the subjoined valuable Etatistics, which will be of interest to all of our readers: The average assessed valuation per acre of lands in the State has steadily declined Trom 811 22 per acre in lobU to $9 41 in 1873, a decrease of 16 per cent. In seventy-seven counties the valuation of lands is found to be lower in 1873-than it was in 1860. Lands in Fayette county fell from S47 02 to 544 78. Lands in Bourbon county fell from S47 6UtoS44b2. Lands in Woodford county fell from S47o2to33b 49, Lands in Jessamine county fell from $35 60 to $24 70. Lands in Madison county fell from S23 73 to JJ19 12. Lands in Mason county fell from $36 01 to $33 35. Lands in Harrison county fell from $22 11 to 20 80. Lands in Boone county fell from S30 11 to 920 31. Lands in Grayson county fell from S3 VU to $i do. Lands in Logan county fell from 812 74 to $8 10. Lands in Christian county fell from 514 i t to a 30. In these eleven counties the decrease will average seventeen per cent; yet in the counties, severally adjoining them, ot .Bracken, irendleton, VYarron Muhlenburg, Edmonson, Brecken- ridgc, Estill there was an increase du ring the same period of twenty-one per cent. The fluctuations in some counties, between the years 1860 and 1873, are curious to note. Taking the years lfiou, 180b, 1870, 1873, wi find that severally, in this order of years, these fluctuations were: In Christian county, $14 19, $8 32, $9 17. $8 35; in Henderson county, $14 21, 817 65, $12 03, $11 55; in Jessamine county, $35 69, $26 89. $29 18,$24 70. Taking again the years 1860, 1865 1871, 1873, we find the several varia tions to be: In Bourbon countv. $47 60 $39 82, $47 37, $44 65; in Woodford countv, $43 63, $31 80, $35 90, $36 40 in Warren county, $13 42, $827, 814 48, 814 00. The rise and fall of the assessed vol ne of hinds in the counties that adjoin r-ich other present many strance fact aivl hhow the necessity of some change in our nvsde of valuation. Instances abound all through the State. But to begin with the counties of Franklin r.nd Anderson. The former marked in 1873 nn increase of six iercent. the valuation of lands f-ince the year lW, m the latter there was a dc rrcajc of twenty-two per cent, within the fame period. In Unickcn countv t!f incrta-c wa feity'pcr cent., and iu the. ncighlxiring county of Mason a de crease of eigln per cent. In Carter county the increase was seventy-two per cent, against a decrease in Kowan county of forty-seven per cent In Edmonson county an increase of sev enteen per cent, against a decrease of fifty-eight per cent in Grayson county; nd in Estill county an increase of fifty- two per cent against a decrease ofsev en teen per cent in Madison county. With respect to other counties which adjoin, and arc about on a par in point of wealth, population, soil, and market facilities, the rise and fall are observed to alternate. In 1874 the lands of Fulton and Hickman counties were as sessed at the same price; in 1872 we find those of J? ulton county in the ascendant, and in 1873 those of Hickman county. We may note asimilarreciprocity m the counties of Washington and Nelson, the firmer being behind its neighbor in 18" uu, aneaa m toil, ana oenina acam in 1873. Oldham county in 1870 led lenry county in the valuation of lands; the next year this condition was re- ersed; while in lb to Uldham led Henry again. The same story is re peated between Pendleton county and Grant county, and also with Hop kins, Ohio and Muhlenburg counties As to the three last mentioned the lands of Hopkins county in 1860 were val ued higher than those of either of the other two; in 1872 those of Ohio county were the highest of the three, and in 183 those-of Muhlenburtr county. As will be seen, the lands ot the Green Biver region have sustained a ess depreciation in actual value than have the most noted localities of the justly famed Blue Grass section. Spring Pigs. There is no stock on the farm more inclined to roam than pigs when a few weeks old, and to do which they will find the smallest crevice in the fence through which to creep, bent on mis chief, whether it be in the field, front yard, or garden, thereby occasioning much trouble, vexation, ana oi times considerable damage to the premises Many farmers, thinking their pigs will gam something in the way ot lood ana hardiness, suffer them to roam where- ever they pleaie; ana it they were breeding them for racers, and desired them to have muscle and toughness, probably such course would be best But if sleek, plump, and contented porkers be the object, closer confine ment is certainly far better. Until i Eig is nearly or quite three months oia e will improve much faster by being restricted to a comfortable pen and yard we ,say comfortable, because that condition is certainly more con ducive to his thrift than tiring himself by roaming over the form in search of lood, especially when his enclosure is well sheltered, dry,- and not too con fining. We venture to say- that a litter ot nigs thus confined will weigh one quar ter more at three months old than if they were allowed to run out, although in both cases the same amount of food be given them, and certainly their dispo sitions will have become much more quiet, which is a most important con sideration as regards their fattening 1 A . . 1 qualities, .at mis point, or wnen weaned, they should have, in aaaition to an abundance of other lood, a clover lot to run in, in order to keep their di gestive organs in proper condition, and after harvest, should be allowed to run on the stubble fields. indeed it is far better to keep a pig pro win tr from the time it is forwarded until it is put up for fattening, and if this course is pursued, 'there is no dif ficulty in making a spring pig weigh two hundred pounds the same fall. Jtfut a hog put up to fatten when at the point of starvation will not only require a long time and more feed to fatten, but when he becomes so his tat will be found laid on superficially, and not equally distributed much ot it going into lard instead ot pork. Meet Ibr CoaMBltatleB. The organization of Grangers has made it possible for farmers to meet of ten for the discussion of questions of great interest to them, such, lor in stance, as better systems of culture among those who are disposed to farm tor proht it armers should meet, as well as merchants and manufacturers, for consultation and an interchange of views, and to compare their varied ex penenccs. .tacts can be elicited in this way, and thus they may be made instrumental in promoting progress. The contest of mind with mind makes us think. Nothing sharpens up a man's perceptive and reflective features like an array of facts bearing upon subject in which he has a pecuniary interest It is, indeed, a sad condition of affairs when the representatives of any call ing come to believe that there is noth ing more to be learned in regard to their business. Discussions, to be in teresting, ought to be upon subjects of immediate interest r or instance, the first meeting in ieuruary should have been devoted to the subject of grasses what kinds are best adapted to the neighborhood, and what new varieties snouia De tested, it would have re sulted in a great saving to many Gran ges if the Secretaries had been request ed to correspond with other Granges in and have obtained the cost prices of clover and grass Eceds, so that they could have been ordered direct from Granges that had a surplus. Rural noTia. Attention is called to the manner of signing ordeis to the State Grange. In manv instances the Secretary and Mas ter both sign, and sometimes as many oa three names are signed to the order. To avoid confusion on the books of the agency, but one name should be sign to the order. The signature of either secretary, .Master or persons ordering will be sufficient Sometimes letters are received without post-office address, and sometimes without any name signed. The writers will wonder why their letters are. not answered.. THE PATRONS DUTY. An Emmy Read He To re New Liber ty urance, ao. -Joo, A'uuroiis oi Husbandry. BY BKO. J. M. ROGERS" Brethren and Sisters op New Liberty Grange, No. 455: Is it not! well tor. us to consider, not only our duty to each other, but to those-without the dates? As a common brotherhood, our aims are. for the elcvatiou of the Farmer, and amelioration of the con dition of the Laboring Classes. To ac complish this, every prother and sister should feel in duty bound to contribute something to the common stock of knowledge. None of us have a scien tific education, and, to remedy this, we should each one experiment on the cultivation of all kinds of valuable plants, and report our observations to the Orange, so that we can arrive at the beat manner of cultivation. We should also study more closely the nature of our soils; for there is not a plow-boy fifteen years old, but who knows that there is in nearly every twenty acre field as many different kinds of soil as there are members in : common family, all differing slightly, some very productive, while others are barely yielding seed. Wc all see the difference, but none of us know cxnctly viuy ii -is bu. iieru is an uniinng ncm 1 Ia XT ? .f n i i for experiment Some soils produce finely after an application of our ordi nary fertilizers, while upon others it has but little effect We should look into this matter, and remedy these differences, and in return we will have the double satisfaction of knowing that we have gained valuable .knowledge, and also increased our income. We should not spurn information, however humble they may be who communicate it, nor witholdit, thinking to overreach our less lnlormed neighbor., we must taKc a broad and compre hensivo view of our surroundings, and look well into every plan proposed for our interest, whether it will be a 'per manent benefit, or of transient duration, leaving us in . a worse condition than be fore. It would be well for us to con sider the thousand and one grievances ot which we are so ready to complain, and asK ourselves the rational ques tions Who is to blame foi all these grievances, real and imaginary? Have we not been partially at fault, or have we done our-whole duty? If we meet these questions Bouarelv. I am nur- suaded that we will be found to plead guilty, and admit that they are partially owing to our gross ncgh gence and woful ignorance.. It is a noteworthy fact, that, as a gen eral rule, we do not take enough in- . i" 11" nri i . ,. l icresim puuiic onairs, leaving tne Hon ors and responsibilities to others. Uut right here, let us put down the brakes. In our efforts at reform, let's be slow to make haste, and not all. turn politi clans, merchants manufacturers. &c. but keep on in the even tenor of our way, not forgetting that those without the Gate have rights as well as we, that thev are useful members of Bneiptv andf keep in mind that all men in n legitimate business have a right to so licit patronage. It is an evident fact, to any unbiased mind, that it is not to the interest, or the design, of the Grange movement to monopolize the mercantile or manufac turing business, nor any of the other callings and professions of men. For it is as evident as any problem in cause and effect, that if this was the case, it would drive the merchant from his counter,the machinist from his lathe, the manufacturer from his leoin and forge, the lawyer from his brief. the minister from his pulpit, and this whole army would return to the farm, and the whole machine would run backwards. The farmer would be found behind the counter, in the ma chine shop and factor', while the other protessions would be found on the farm i ..1 . .., . ootn parties witnout any experience or training. It is a plain case that such a course" would end in' misery and ruin, ii nut ui civil war. But the great obiect of the Order: as declared by the National Grange, is to bring the producer and consumer in closer relationship, an end greatly to be desired by all. Now, brethren, instead of boasting to those whose business renders them ineligible to become members of our Urder, that we are gome to take their business from them and give it to the farmers, let us try to utilize their capi tal and experience, so as to make it profitable to both parties. And in conclusion, let us all labor to correct whatever evils may exist among us, remembering that "An honest man .1 11 . M.... is tne nomest worK oi uod. Grangers and Horse Thieves. Pleasant Grove Grange, Breckinridge county, Ky., recently addnted the lollowing preamble and resolutions which were unanimously adopted that Whereas, Horse thieves have again commenced operations in this county, it is deemed expedient to be prepared for them; therefore. Resdved, That a committee of three stout and resolute men, and three al tCniateS. all Tnpmhpr if flllr CZrnrm 7 u...

Retdved, That the committee be paid all traveling expenses and area tonable compensation for their servi ccsoutofthe treasury of our Grange. By the amendments of the National Grange Constitution, which is now ratified and the law of the t order, no difference is made as to admission fees between the original charter memders and those who subsequently 10m Grange. The fee is 85 for men and $3 for women, invariably. HOUSEHOLD HINTS. The reckless use of Paris green by farmers -for destroying bugs is proving to be a source of .very considerable danger, not only to" themselves but to the consumers ot their products, lhe Scientific American calls' attention to the fact that the death of several persons in a single dwelling in New York city from eating pickles upon which some Paris green had been blown by the ind occurred quite recently. ToMake a White FRiCASSEK.-Take two chickens, cut them up, and lay them in your skillet with two slices of lean ham, two small eschalots, ann a few blades of mace. Then season your fowls with pepper and salt Add a ttle water to the other things, sathat vou can iust see it among your chick ens. When about half done-, add half pint of cream and a lump of butter the size ot a walnut rolled in nour. Keep the fricassee constantly stirring till done. . If you are well, let yourself alone. One of the great errors of the age isr- we medicate the body too much. More persons are destroyed by eating too uch than by drinking too much Gluttony kills more than drunkenness in civilized society. The best gynma- sium is a woodyard, a clearing, or a corn-field. A hearty laugh is known the world over to be a health promo ter; it elevates the spirits, enlivens the circulation, and is marvelously conta- irmns in a pood sense. Bodflv activity o c j j and bodily health are inseparable. If the bowels are loose,- lie. down in bed, remain there and eat nothing until you are well. The three best medicmes m the world are warmth, abstinence and repose. Herald oj Health. Eice PoDDn.-oWmioirrEoGs.-Put in a-well-buttered dish, a half pound of best Carolina nee, simply washed; pour on it three pints of cold milk: sweeten and flavor to taste; pu$ a little butter and nutmeg on top to brown; bake two and a half hours in a slow oven, on which much of the success of the pudding depends. Cube -for Warts. Lisfranc im merses the parts on which the warts are developed in a strong solution of black soap. 1 his causes a slight cau terization of the surface of the wart, The loosened tissue is to. be removed and the application repeated every day till the cure is complete. Oil of vitri ol should never be used for this pur pose; it is very irritating, and inflames the warts instead ol curing them. As the season is approaching for the renovating and hxmg up of houses, a hint on the subject of wall paper is not ill-timed. Everybody knows that green paper contains arsenic, but housekeep ers are not aware that papers contain ing blue and red coloring are as dan . i i.i .i . . gerous to neaitn as tne green, contain ing as they do, copper, Prussian blue, and lead. The majority of blue papers now in use appear to contain copper, and the effects of inhaling copper dust are very similar to and almost as per nicious as those produced by arsenic. All unglazed papers are continually giving on impalpable dust into the air, and it is self evident that persons oc cupying such rooms inhale tins dust continually. Gumbo. Take a chicken or fowl. cut it up as if to be fried, lay it in a pot with a spoonful of butter, iust enough to brown it a little; then pour as much water to it as will make soup enough for a small family, say two quarts; add a thin slice ot bacon lean as you can get it a little onion chopped fine, and some parsley. Stew it gently from early in the morning .-, 1- l ? 11 M. 1 until uinner-ume, uiKing care w inasn the bones of the -chicken before it is put into the pot.

All these have the enect to dry up and injure the fur, and is not the least protection from moths, as the furs are put into perfectly tight packages that no moth nor miller could enter.. Ladies are surprised upon ta king out their furs in the fall to find that they are injured by the moths al ter all this care, lhe simple answer is that the embryo moth was in the furs when they were put away. The deposit of the miller is so small that it is not noticed, and the worm grows very rapidly and does the mischief, the camphor and cedar having no effect on it The moth miller has access to the furs before they are put away, and while it dislikes the smell of camphor and cedar, this is not applied to the fur until the miller has had access to it Furs should be thoroughly whipped with a small, smooth, round stick to get out all dust and the small deposit of the miller before putting away, and then put into something that is so tight that a very small miller cannot crawl into. A linen pillow-case is a good thing to slip the box into. As it is possible that the furs may not have been whipped perfectly clean when put away, it is aesiruuie io uikc luem uui, say iu June, and whip them again, when, if there are only moths in them. they will be in the form of worms, and may be easily whipped out. Never hang furs out to air, but put them back in the boxes as soon as they are whipped. If in whipping furs the fur is found to be loose, it is evident that there are moths in them, and they should be whipped until the fur will not fly. HottKhM. GEO, KbEIX, GEO. KLEIN" & BRO.
