AGRIGU L TUBAL. Profit ia Cows. There are but few farmers who .fully realize the true value of a good cow well kept. As a general practice three cows do not produce aa much milk, butter or cheese as one would if treated rightly and proper. No account is kept of the amount of milk or butter produced by each cow in the year. The farmer with his cows U in the same cituation as he is with the balance of his firm. He keeps no account and knows nothing about his business. Two hundred and fifty pounds of but ter per cow per year is not a large yield, yet there are aa ore that do not produce more than half that amount thaatbfcre is that exceeds one half. There is no poorer policy than starving and freezing a milk cow. There can be no more improvidence in any branch of agriculture than half starving and exposing to the storms of winter the cow that is expected to furnish the family, with milk, butter and groceries. We have seen this spring from three to five cows staggering about straw stacks of farmers, which will require nearly all the summer to repair wasted nature, without supplying any of the rich, nutritious milk which only comes from a healthy, well-fed cow. Such a farmer, should keep a less number or provide better shelter and more rich food. One cow well provided for is better than three starved ones. One will furnish more milk. Children should never be fed on milk drawn from a poor cow, .reduced to the bare possibility of sustaining vitality. It is cruelty to animals to thus treat them, and it is murder to the innocent children to feed, them on such food. The nrofit. the morality and the .respectability of it require tnat a man who keeps cows should provide better than is done in most cases in eeld climates. A man that would cheat his,, poor old cow, which has thus Sec raised his children, SfeosJd be cBBsidered respectable in no society. There may be cases" where drought, flood or devouring insects have rendered it impossible to provide bountilully for,all the animals on the farm-, but in 'such cases the owner should not be compelled to see the poor old cow shaking her horns at him in his night dreams. We plead for the cow, and if three or five cannot be pro vided for, sell off, and one well fed will provide more than the three or five. How FamlBg Implement are Neglected. I havp' just come in from a walk, dis gusted with the slip-shod manner in which some of my fellow-farmers will grsist- in carrying on their business, ere is one of my neighbors a tiptop good man, kind to a fault, indulgent to his family, thoughtful for his hired helpiri-trnth.-a'man whose opinion upon matters of benevolence and Christian charity I respect highly. Still that man has no sort of feelings for inammate'things and his wholesale neglect" f or.their care is worse than a hole iHy bis .right -hand pants pocket. His wagea has. beea out. all 'whiter, and stands now exposed to the change-! able jreatber'of spring the worsts ort i of weather to try the constitution of took as well as man and beast. The plow stands in the last furrow where it: was lert.iri November. A stone-boat lays by the barn-yard gate fiat on the , ground, and a single-wagon, harrow, cultivators, horse-rake and numerous hand tools are scattered about pro miscaoiislyj fully exposed to Tain and sunshine. A low estimate of loss from this want of care is 7 per cent, of the investment Look at the figures: Double wagon .$30 00 Single wagon . 7 60 00 Plow. 12 00 Harrow,,..., 15 00 Wbeel.cultSvator......;............... 35 00 StoneVbat.'.r 6 00 6 00 Revolving-rake, Hand tools . 45 00 Total value.......... .$259 00 Seven per cent., or loss............ 18 13 Suppose my friend had built a shed last fall, and the cost would have been about as follows: - One thousand feet ootnmon lumber .$10 00 SiDrtia.... , 1 00 Poets and oaUa........ 2900 Labor..., ... 4 00 ..Total cost. ............ $17" 00 Here is a margin of $1 13, beside the inventory of the shed, which certainly would be good for ten years more. Economy of material is something to look after as well as economy of time. Detroit Free Press. Case of Table Kxives. Table knives should be thoroughly cleaned or polished at least once a day, and the best time, perhaps, is after dinner, as then the morning's work is finished, or should be, and more time may be given; and secondly, if circumstances liave not allowed getting a second or tea set these will be in good condition always when company comes. The best material for scouring that I have found is soft brick, such as may be purchased at the stores, used with a flannel rag and a little soft soap if -! 1.1-J . ir.r -uiu uiiiura are iu a. uau conoiuon. A small potato with one end cut off is good for this purpose, as it furnishes sufficient moisture and the juice assists in removing stains. Where the knives have got rusty by neglect, rub the blades over thoroughly with sweet od; allow this to remain as long as possible, a day or bo at least, then rub the steel with finely-powdered unslaked lime or pumice-stone. To keep them from justing when not in daily use drv them thoroughly and roll up in a flannel cloth and keep it in a dry place. IhuctkM.. " TheKitchea Garden. No time should be lost in preparing the eou as soon as it is thoroughly set tled and friable. It is absolutely nec essary; in order to insure a good crop, that peas, 'lettuce, radish, spinach, turnips and onions should be sown just as early in the spring as the ground will admit. This spring especially so, since it is late. In sowing peas, sow earl-, medium, and late sorts, all at one time. In this way, get a succes sion, and have each early. Daniel O'Bourke, although old, is still one of the best early peas; and Champion of iiUglana, tne very best medium early pea. For late peas, and for the gen eral crop, the large Marrowfat is hardy and as good as any. One of the mistakes made by" kitch en gardeners is in supposing that beets and carrots must not be town until about corn-planting time, and that dwarf peas must not be planted until about the 1st of June. As to beets and carrots,- those wanted for the early crop should be sown as soon as lettuce aBcrradishnf possible. Thus you may, get nice roots for .the table in June. The early blood turnip beet is a good one, and the French short-horn carrot is the best earlv carrot There arefew better greens than beet tops, and in thinnme the crop always save them. They will come in imme diately after spinach is eone. There fore sow thick!)'; you are thus sure of a good stand, and those thinned out are good for the pot. The same rule will apply to all garden Beeds; bow thick and thin quick is a good rule. You must weed at any .rate, and while weeding it is but little more trouble to thin the plants than simply to weed them. Salsifr. or "vegetable ovsters." is another root that should be cultivated in every garden. They are not much like oysters, it is true, even in flavor, but they make a very nice dish, cooked in any of the simple ways usual. They require rich sou ana the whole season to grow in, and in a dry soil will stand any winter without covering. Most people leave them in the ground du ring the winter, but it is better to dig them in the fall and pack them in sand in the cellar. Thus you may have them in their proper season) the winter. A few may be left in the ground to be dug in jthe spring; if so. after thorough ly being frozen, they should be thickly covered with mulch, and uncovered to thaw in the spring as you want them. The same rule will apply to parsnips. Sow salsify as early as possible. The earlier sown, the better the crop, usu ally. For winter use, carrots and beets should not be sown until about the 1st of June, and even the last will often give a good crop. They do not make such large roots, it is true, but large enough for culinary use. You want them tender and succulent, and thus you may have them so. Long dark blood beets and orange carrots are best Parsnips should be sown about the first to the middle of May. They want the whole season to grow in. The hollow-crowned variety is smooth, Ion? and excellent Sweedish turnins will givea good crop sown the last of May. If you wait a month later, very likely they will either be eaten by the fly or else be burned up, or both, be fore they get root With flat turnips for winter use, you must take your chances. Sow the latter part of J uly, and continue to bow at intervals until the middle of August. We all like beans, but it is not every one who "knows beans." Don't wait too long before you plant brush beans for the first crop. Plant some as early as the ground is in condition, or about the time you- would plant your first crop of corn. Suppose the frost does kill the first planting of beans; suppose the frost nips your first planting of corn; you are then as ready to replant as your wait-awhile neighbors, if it does not, you are ahead. The mere plant ing is not much, and the second costs but little. The frost will not kill more than one year out of three.- Driving Fence Peats. A neighbor told me how to make a board fence rapidly and cheaply last year. He and his hired man went to the field where the fence posts, with ends slightly sharpened, were lying along the line of the proposed fence. One man stood on a platform two and a half Jeet high, and with a heavy mallet drove the posts as the other held them in position. Eighty posts were thus put down three feet deep one afternoon. The ground was free from large stones, and the time selec ted was just after the frost had left the ground m the spring. The posts were white oak. and did not split by being driven. The ground was so soft that severe pounding was not necessary, and doubtless softer wood might have been used. The fence stood firmer than where holes had been dug and the posts regularly set It is possible this method could be adopted on soils where there are 6tones by working a crow-bar down through the soft earth to the required depth, shoving aside the stones before the post is driven down. Two stakes driven down Bide by side, with room for jails between, and wired at the top, make an excellent and cheap tempora ry fence; and a post driven or set three feet, with a stake beside it and wired to it to hold the rails, make a fence both cheap and durable; by driving the stake into the ground twelve or fifteen inches. Only one wire will be needed, and that at or near the top. Such a fence takes little room, and by using old rails need cost but little monej It is 'less liable to sag than the ordinary board-fence made in the usual way. Or. New York Timet.

Bake your pastry, take thick, sweet cream, beat to a stiff froth, sweeten, and flavor if desired; pour on the crust, cut thin slices of ap ple jelly and place over the cream in ihc pies. It is then ready for use. Savory Dish. Melt a quarter of a pound of good cheese in the oven; when sufficiently melted, add one egg' and a wine-glass of milk, beat together till it resembles a. custard. Bake in a hot oven a light brown. To Make Gikoer Loaf. To four pounds of dough add one pound of raw sugar, half a pound of butter, one ounce and a half of caraway seeds, one ounce and a halt of ground ginger. Bake in the usual way. It very much resembles Scotch hot cross buns. It makes a very nice cake, either for tea or lunch. Castle Pudding. Two eggs, one quarter pound of sugar, one quarter pound of butter, one quarter pound of flour; beat butter to a cream, and su gar finely pounded, then add eggs and flour. Bake three quarters of an hour in a moderate oven, and in small cups; when done, turn on a flat dish and cover with thick white sauce flavored with wine or essence. Crackkiis. Butter, one cup; salt, one teaspoonful; flour, two quarts rub thoroughly together with the hand, and wet through with cold water; beat well in flour to make brittle and hard; then pinch off pieces and roll out each cracker by itself, if you wish them to resemble bakers' crackers. Sugar Crackers: Flour, four pounds; loaf sugar and butter, of each, half a pound; water, one pint and a half; make as above. Aitles in Imitation of Ginger. To three pounds of very hard apples, take two pounds of loaf 'sugar, and a quarter of a pound of best white sin ger. Put these in layers (haying first sliced the apples m eight pieces and cored them) alternately in a wide mouthed jar. Next day infuse an ounce of white ginger, well bruised, in about a pint of boiling water; let it stand till the next day. Then put in the apples that have been two. days in the ginger. Simmer slowly until the apples look clear. Take great care not to break the pieces. Hints on Tea Making. If the tea is desired to be of good flavor, be care- iui noi io maice it in a tea-pot wnicn has been long out of use without hav ing previously washed it out with boilintr water. This is done to remove any slight moldiness which may be present in the vessel without being ob served, and which would impart a dis agreeable taste to the tea when made. Always keep the tea in a proper-can is ter,protectea from the atmosphere and damp, otherwise it will lose the pleas ant scent peculiar to good tea, and when used give the beverage an unpleasant navor. in making tea always nil up the tea-pot at once. By this means the whole of the theine which is the vegetable principle on which the pe culiar effects produced by tea depends is extracted at once. This will be found much' superior to the plan some times adopted of wetting the tea with a small quantity of water, and then al low it to stand before filling the tea pot. For the purpose of extracting the whole theine, the water should be allowed to remain in the tea for at least ten minutes before pouring it out Be also careful that the water employed for making tea is boiling before filling the tea-pot, otherwise the whole of the theine will not be extracted by the fluid, and the tea employed would not go as far as it otherwise would. Freckles. A simple remedy for removing freckles is a pint of sour milk and a small quantity of horse-radish. Let the mixture stand over night and use it as a wash three times a day until the freckles disappear. Sick Headache. Two teaspoon fuls of finely powdered charcoal, drank in a half tummer of water, will often give relief to the sick headache when caused, as in most cases it is, by a su perabundance of acid on the stomach. Stew Pans. A great mistake is made in American kitchens in not using the tin-lined copper stew-pan in stead of the porcelain-lined, which burns far more readily and is not at all durable. No danger may be appre hended from the copper, as the tin can always be replaced at slight expense. Swallowing Com.-lf a child swal lows a coin need danger be feared, and should physic be given? Ana. Gen erally when a coin is swallowed there is little or no danger. If it happens to be a bronze, then there may be chem ical changes that will cause copper poisoning; otherwise, do not worry, for what will pass into the stomach will pass through. Avoid physic, it empties the bowels when they should be kept full by coarse food as coarse bread, or something to distend and en large the digestive tube. Cheap Blacking. A correspond ent of the Vermont Farmer vouches for the value of blacking made in the fol lowing manner: Fill a bottlehalf full of nails or rusty bits of iron; then fill with sharp vinegar; shake every few days for a while; in a few weeks it will be ready for use. It improves with age. When used down fill again with vinegar. When boots become red, wet in the blacking and oil them; they will look as good as new. The oil sets the color; it will neither rub nor wash off It is good for all kinds of leather, will not injure in the least A piece of alum as big as a hickory nut will render elear a pail of muddy water. Dissolve thenllum, stir and allow the impurities to settle. When a child's ear becomes painful, as it so often does; everything should be done to soothe it, and all strong, ir ritating applications should be avoided, Pieces of hot onion or fig should not bo put in; but warm flannels should be applied with poppy-fomentation, if the pain doos not subside. How much children suffer from their ears unpit ted because unkown it would proba bly wring the hearts of those who love them suddenly to discover. It is often very hard, even for medical men, to' ascertain that the cause of a young child's distress is seated in the ear, ana frequently a discharge from it, with a cessation of pain, first reveals the se cret of a mysterious attack, which has really been an inflammation of tho drum: The watchfulness of a parent, however, would probably suffice to de tect the cause of suffering if directed to this point as well as to others. If chil dren cry habitually when their ears are washed, that should not be neglec ted; there is, most likely, some cause of pain. Many membranes are de stroyed from the discharges which take place during "teething." When ever there is a discharge of matter from the ear, it would be right to pour in warm water night and morning, and so at least to try to keep it clean. American Farm Journal.

A MAQNIPICANT CONCEPTION TTOUt' ' DERFULLY CARRIED OUT. The necessity of a popular raediam for th representation of the productions of our peal artists baa always been recognised, and many attempts have been made to amttha wast The sneeeasive failures which have so rnvarfaily; followed each attempt in this country to astakr lish an art Journal, did not prove the indiSW enoe of tho people of America to the etaias of high art. So soon as a proper appreciation of the want and aa ability to- saeet it were shows, the pablio at one rallied with, enthusiasm to its support, and the result was a rreat niatier and commercial triumph THE ALDINZ. The Aldine while Usosd with all of the rags-, larity, has none of th temporary or timely la tere! ts characteristic of ordinary periodical It is an elegant miscellany of pen, light, ad graceful literature, and a collection of pictures, the rarest collection of artistic skill, fa black and white.

Its aUiiotrU'l ealtivat a broad aad appreciative art taste, on that will discriminate va .grounds of intrinsic merit. Thus, while pleading before the patrons of The Aldine, aa a leading characteristic, th productions of the most noted American artists, attention will always b given to speolmeaa front foreign masters, giving suhMrrbers all th pleasure and Instruction obtainable from home or foreign swerees. The artistic illustration of American scenery, original with The Aldine is an important fea ture, and Its magnificent plates are of a ait more appropriate to th satistaetory treatmaal of details than can be afforded by aay Inferior page. The judicious interspersion ef fandteape, marine, Ignre aad animal snbjeeta, swtaln'an unabated interest, impossible when th scop ot th work confines the "artist too eloeery to a single style of subject.
