AGRICULT URAL. I.onrdiiis Farm llniitls. Should the wives of well-to-do far mers, who are possessed of houses, lands, stocks, alive and dead, be com pelled to run, manage, and do most of the work in boarding-houses ana laun dries for the accommodation of labor ers? Our opinion is that they should not. No such thing is expected of the wires or the other employers, and it should not be expected of the wives of those farmers who have like means. The pleasure and comfort of any home is destroyed when it is converted into a lodging and eating house for laboring men. Especially is this the case when the laundry is attached. It would be better in every respect to have arm hands live by themselves. It would be much better for the fami ly of the farmer, and generally more pleasant for the hands themselves. At present, in this country, only nnmar ried men, as a rule, are employed to work on a farm. In other kiuds of business, it is found that married men are the best employes, being more in lined to be steady, industrious, and less likelv to want to change places They are also more likely te take an interest Jn the business, whatever it is, for the reason that they have increased responsibilities. If' the j)lan was general here, as abroad, of having farm hands live in a cottage, rented at small cost, many would be married and keep house, while other laborers would board with them. By allowing, as they do in oth r countries, the occupant of every cot tage to have a small lot of land for lib own use, and an opportunity to keep a cow, pig, and poultry, it is likely that they could live 'more cheaply as well as more nleasantlv than under the present system. -As to the farmer's family, the gain would be great in every respect. Chicago Times. A Home-Hade Clod Crusher. Take three scantlings, two of them four feet and the other five feet long; all of them two by five inches. Bevel the foremost ends like a sled-runner. Now lay the two shortest down six feet apart and the longest one in the center between them, with the beveled sides up. Have all the rear ends even and your boards eight feet long and ten inches wide, and one and one-half inches thick. Nail on the rear plank first by driving in two large nails in each scantling; lap each one and one-half inch. After you get your shortest scantlings nearly cov ered, turn it over and hitch your team to the center scantling, which projects one' foot before the others. This is a good thing to pulverize the ground, and the greatest thing to cov prwith that I ever tried. You can cover two rows at a time. Cor. Cvi etnnati Gazette. Soap Care Tor Hog Cholera. A year ago I bought six hogs from a drove of twenty that were dying with cholera, and found, on driving them home, that they were affected; they vomited often. I put them with twenty of my own raising, and boiled some corn in weak lye from ashes, used eoft soap in their slop from the kitchen and I never lost one, while the last of that drove I left died. I have one now which took it a month ago so bad it would eat nothing, it seemed blind I cured it by using one dose of com mon soap, made thin with water, pour ing it down with a tin cup, by holding the hoc on its back. Cor. New York Tribune. A Aovcl Cure lor Lock Jnw in Ilorite. "We beard of a novel remedy for lock jaw in horses while at the Wood burn sale Wednesday last, which is, to place a plank on the forehead of the horse flatwise and strike it a f-harp blow with a hammer. It is claimed to be a perfect cure, but care must be taken not to strike too hard. A friend in Oldha-n county the other, day had occasion to apply the remedy to a fine marc, but used a sledge hammer and gave toolwxivy a blow. The marc rave two or three convulsive kicks and expired. Yeoman. A Xew Breed or.Mtcep. Wm. Crozier, an Englishman in charge of an extensive farm on Long Island, is endeavoring to firmly estab lish a new breed of sheep, produced by crossing Cotswolds and South Downs He has produced, tays the American Agriculturalist, a sheep with a heavy fleece of combing wool, superior in quality and equal in weight with tint of the pure Cotswold, and with as good quality of fleih as the South Down, and one-half greater iizc.

REPRESENTATIVE AND CHAMP ION Or AMERICAN AST TASTE rR08PICTU TOR 1875 KICBTB TZAS. THE jVLTJINE THE ART JOURNAL OP AMERICA,- ISSUIDM0S7H1T. MAGNIFICANT COKCEPTIOW WOX DER7DLLY CARRIED OUT. The necessity of a popular mediant forth representation of the productions of ear great artists nas always been recognised, and man attempts have been made to meet the wsnt The successive failures which hare so invariably followed each attempt in this country to estab lish an art journal, did not prove the indiffee' enee of the people-of America to the e!ims of high art. So soon as a proper appreciation of the want and an ability to meet it were shown, the publlo at once rallied with enthusiasm to its support, and tbe result was a rrtat artistio and commercial triumph TBE JtLDINE. ineAiaine wnue Issued with all or the regu larity, has none of the temporary or ftmty in' Uresis characteristic of ordinary periodicals. It is an elegant miscellany of pure, tight, and graceful literature, and a collection of pictures, the rarest collection of artistic skill, la black and white. Although each succeeding number affords a fresh pleasure to its friends, the real value and beauty ot The Aldine will bo most appreciated after it is bound up at the close ot the year. While other publications may elsinr superior cheapness, as compared with rivals tt a similar class. The Aldine is a unique and original conception alone and onapnroaehed) absolutely without competition in price or cnsracier. J.ne possessor or a complete ton ume eannot duplicate the quantity of fine pa per and engravings in any other shape or nnm- ber of volumes, or ten timtt iu coil; and tin, lAert t IA etiromo, btMidtt: Tbe national feature of Tbe Aldine must b taken in no narrow sense. True art is cosmo politan. While The Aldine is a strictly Ameri ran institution, it does set eenfine itself to tb reproduction of native art. Its mission, is te cultivate a broad and appreciative art taste, ono that will discriminate on grounds of intrintio merit. Thus, while pleadingbefore the patrons of The Aldine, as a leading characteristic, the productions of the most noted American artists, attention will always be given to specimen from foreign masters, giving subscribers all tho pleasure and instruction- obtainable from homer or foreign sources. lhe artistic illustration of American scenery- original with The Aldine is an important fea ture, and its magnificent plates are of a sire more appropriate to the satisfactory treatment of details than can be afforded by any inferior page. The judicious lnterspersionof landsnpe, marine, figure and animal subjects, sustain an unabated interest, impossible where the seop of the work confines the artist too etosely to a single style of subject. Tbe literature of The Aldine is a light and graceful accompaniment, worthy of the artistie features, with only such technical disquisitions as do not interfere with, the popular interest of the work.
