Farm and Garden.
When to Use a Boiler. A correspond ent of the Rural World says : It may seem like presumption to at tempt to tell a mac when and how to use a farm implement, but no man knows a thing until he learns it. A very mistaken notion prevails as to the effect of rolling land. The most com mon ont is that it packs the soil. This is nevei true except where the surface is smooth and the soil fine, and then perhaps only an inch deep. Usually the land to be rolled is uneven and rough, as the plow leaves it, or is lumpy, as after tha harrow. The roller will crush the lumps in the one case (if they are not too hard), and the lumps, although crushed, have buoyed up the roller so that an examination shows that ' the loose soil is not packed only the lumps are crushed. But to roll directly after the plow is, above all, the proper time to do it. Even when the soil is apparently dry and hard and comes up in chunks, there is a little dampness in it that enables a heavy (weighted) roller to crush it; but if it be delayed six hours, and even three sometimes, it dries out so rapidly that it is past cure. A very foolish idea pre vails among many that it tends to form a crust and bake. This can never be the case, because, first, one cannot roll land at all that is wet enough to bake ; and, second, soil will " run " and crust more not rolled than if it is. First, and most important of all, keep the roller in the field with the plow, and always "roll up" before noon, and again bet'oie night, except on a damp, cloudy day. Second, roll all plowed land, no ma' ter lrhat use ifc is to be put to, excej-i fall plowing for spring crops. Tuird, always roll before the harrow, and then keep rolling and harrowing until the soil is in condition, no matter if it is pacned with continual tramping if it is dry. It may be crushed to pow der under the horses' hoofs and be all the better. Fourth, if the crop ia planted and is up (if corn) a foot high, or if nothing is planted and the soil is nothing but a mass of hard lumps, stand stead', watch the weather closely, so as to let nothing interfere except the observance of the Sabbath, and as soon after a shower as the soil will not stick to the roller, put it on, weigh it down, have a change of teams, if necessary, and do not let the roller stop at breakfast, dinner or sup per, till darkness stops you: thus by "striking while the iron is hot," i. e., rolling while the lumps are wet, you will have mastered the situation. The text is, roll ; rll your meadows, your wheat, your corn, your turnips, your fresh plowing and your fallow ; and if you are in doubt how to subdue an unpromising seed-bed, roll it. Finally, during plowing time, do not lend your roller for over three or four hours at any time. An Experiment in Feeding Horses. The London Omnibus Company use six thousand horses. To economize in feed is an important matter, and has led to several tests, the result of which is re corded as follows : To each of Ihree thousand of their horses they gave a daily allowance of ground oats sixteen pounds, ground hay seven and one-half pounds, and cut straw one and one-eighth pounds the hay and straw being cut into pieces about half an inch long, and well mixed up with oats in a little water, and so making twenty-six pounds of food for each horse. And to each one of their other three thousand horses they gave a daily allowance ot whole or unbruised oats nineteen pounds, and uncut or whole hay and titraw thirteen pounds, without any water, in our old-fashioned way, making thirty-two pounds of this food for ech horse. And what was the result ? Why, it was soon discovered that the horse which was fed on the twenty -six pounds of ground oats remained in as good a condition, and could perform just as much work and do it just as well, too, as the horse did which consumed thirty-two pounds of food as aforesaid. thus showing a saving of six pounds of lood per day in tavor ot bruised oats and cut hay and straw, which, if valued at five cents per horse per day, amounted to a saving of the neat little sum of $300 per day. Extracting Honey. At the Iowa Bee-Keepers' Convention, Mrs. Tupper said: I have used the extractor on comb not a week old, and no comb broke down. Do not extract from comb con taining brood, believing the brood to be ftir more valuable than the honey. Took from six hives 420 pounds of honey in a week, and at a favorable time believe this can be repeated every week. Can better afford to sell extracted honey at ten cents per pound than comb honey at twenty-five cents. Comb is of so high a value that we cannot atlbrd to sell it at an ordinary price. Some have obje cted to the extracted honey, but as people become acquainted with it they buy it readily. Sells all she has to sell, and the demand is increasing. Remedy for Hens Ealing Eggs. Build a laying room a little dark, so that they cannot see to do that kind f mischief. Hens naturally like to retire out of sight to lay, in a snug, cozy place. It pre vents hens that are laying from being disturbed by going into the house ; and strolling hens do not bother, for they cannot see to pick. A room six by eight feet, is large enough for seventy-five or one hundred hens ; for it will accom modate twenty nests or more. Shelves are necessary to set the nets upon, with a projection in front for the hens to walk on. To Make a Partridge Trap. Make a box three feet long and a foot and a half in height. Make the sides of lath. Make a door on top two and a half feet in length, and suspend or hang it by a wire thu agh the center of the door. Then put grain on the top of the trap and door so ' aat the game must alight there to get it. When the partridge steps on the door ib turns so suddenly that the bird is not able to escape. Try it. Fresh Air 'for Sheep. Sheep require abundance of fresh air, a3 in fact all stock do, but sheep especially. Close pens are very injurious, causing, first, running at the nose and colds, which finally result in a cough and inflamma tion of the lu ogs. The greatest need is to keep them dry under foot and pro tected from snow, and Tain etorms ; sheep will choose to lie out of doors in a well-littered yard rather than under cover, and thrive better in doing so. How a Pennsylvania Judge Obtained a Competent Jury. . r ., His Honor, 5 udge Kirkpatrick, of the District Court, if we are informed cor rectly, has done a very wise and praise worthy thing. An intricate and com plicated business question being in volved in a cause to be tried before him the other day, he requestei several of our leading and prominent citizens to serve on the jury, as the rdinary meth ods of drawing jurors had, in this in stance, almost wholly failed to secure the attendance of such . shrewd, keen business men as could master the intri cacies of the matter to be decided. This is not at all prejudicial to the clear judgment of ordinary jurors on ordi nary subjects, but illustrates the propo sition that in the trial of important causes, in which the clearest possible perception not only is wanted, but also perfect familiarity with business rules, methods and customs, care should be taken to select such men as can readily appreciate the facts in evidence and adapt them to the determination of the issue. Pittsburg Gazette. April 27. A Fixed Fact in Pharmacy. Con side ,-ing the multitude of diseases, it is arne&ng that we live: In view of the countless remedies for them, it is 'von derful that we die. Unfortunately, however, all the diseases are realities ; whereas most of the " remedies " are humbugs. One exception to the latter rule demands the recognition and ap proval of the press. We refer to Dr. Joseph Walker's Vinegar Bitters. Of the Doctor himself, we know nothing; but of his medicine we can speak from ob- way into almost every household. Probably it is more extensively used in this country, as a family remedy, than 'nv other preparation, although it has 1 1 oi- yet been before the world three ears, w nerever we go we near ot it, and whenever we hear of it, the com ments on it efficacy are enthusiastic. We have question d sufferers from liver complaint, rei"ttent fever, fever p.nd ague, chronic headache, vertigo, ir regularities of the bowels, indigestion, rheumatism, neuralgia, gout, kidney diseases, and affections of the lungs, as to its effects, and the uniform an swer has been, " It is doing me good." Believing that " what everybody says must be true," we have no hesitation in admitting that Vinegar Bitters is the Great Medical Success of the pres ent century. Com. A venerable old bigamist, sixty-three years of age, named Cooper, hailing from Boston, and who held the lucrative situation of drummer for a Boston varnishing establishment, was arrested in New York, on the 22d', charged with having quadrupled his legal privileges in the matrimonial line. The complain ant was one of his victims, and states that he has four wives living that she knows of, and that he has buried one in Boston. If you desire rosy cheeks and a com plexion fair and free from Pimples, Blotches and Eruptions, purify your blood by taking Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery. It has no equal for this purpose. 596 Charles VII., or Don Carlos, is a Spanish gentleman who is making con siderable stir in the world, and it may be of interest to his correspondents to know his full name.

" I am like an old hemlock withered at the top." said a ven erable Indian Chief, pointing to hit thin and bleach ing locks. Thousands of men and women in civilized Bociely, much younger than the old Sagamore, are like him, "withered at the top," simply because they LaTe neglected to use the means of preserving and beautifying the hair which science had placed at their disposal. If Lyon's Kathaibos be faithfully applied once or twice a day, to the fibers and the scalp, it is just as impossible that the hair should decay, wither, fall out or become t-arsh or fuzzy, as that a meadow, duly refreshed with nightly dews and sunlit rains, should become barren of green blades. This match less preparation not only keeps the hair alive and the skin of the head in a healthy and clean condition, but actually multiplies the filaments and imparts to them a luster, fleixbility and wavy beauty unattainable by any other mode of ireatment. It does not, like the metallic and sulphurous hair dyes, dry up the natural moisture of thescalp, but supplies nutriment to the roots of the hair and vigor to the fibers. Com.

Dr. Llotd, of Ohio, surgeon in the army daring the war, from exposure contracted consumption. He says : ' I have no hesitancy in stating that It was by the useoi your Lung Balsam that! am now alive and enjoying health." Dr. Flktsheb, of Missouri, says: "I recemmend your Balsam in preference to any other medicine for Coughs, and it eives satisfaction.' ALLEN'S LUNG BALSAM is the remedy to cure all Lung and Tbroat difficulties. It should be thor oughly tested before using any other Balsam. It will cure when all others fail. Directions accompany each bottle. AGAIN WHAT THE DOCTORS SAY. Amos Woolet, M. D..of Koskiniko county, Indi ana, says , For three years past I have used Allen's Lnnir Balsam extensively in my practice, and I am satisfied there is no better medicine for lung diseases in use." Isaac A. Doban, M. D., of Logan county, Ohio, says: " Allen's Lung Balsam not only sells rapidly, but gives perfect satisfaction in every case within my knowledge. Having confidence in it, and know iig lhat it possesses valuable medicinal properties, I freely use it in my daily practice, and with unbound ed success. As an expectorant, it is most certainly ahead of any preparation I have ever yet known." Nathaniel Harris, M. D.. ot Middlebury, Vt says: " I have no doubt it will soon become a classi cal remedial aeenttorthe cnre of all diseases of the Threat, Bronchial Tubes and Lungs." Physicians do not recommend a medicine which has no merits ; what they say about ALLEN'S LCNG BALSAM can be taken as a fact Let a!' afflicted test it at once. &9 It is harmless to the most delicate child. It contains no opium in any form. CAUTION. Call for " Allen's Lung Balsam," and shun the use of any other Baliam : uuprincipled men may deceive you with worthless preparations. J. N.

A very clear illuatration of the dis tinction between strength of will and strength of mind was once given by a gay young fellow who probably had never read a page of metaphysics in hfs Hfe. This young gentleman, whose iriends called him Bob, for shortness, was of an exceedingly nervous tempera ment, and any unuaual indulgence in wine was sure to leave him in a shaky and unhappy condition. Bob had a consequential acquaintance named Waffles, who was gifted with the absorb ing qualities of a sponge, and who, al though rn the habit of drinking much more freely than Bob, wa9 never known to exhibit any signs of inebriety. One morning Waffles called upon his friend, whom he found seated on the stool of repentance, with a wet towel bound round his head, and several empty soda bottles by l is side; and, shocked at the sight, he began to moralize. " So you were tight again last night, eh?" said Waffles. "New, why don't you do a3 1 do ? When I have drunk enough I stop. You should have more strength of mind, and imitate me." "Strength of mind," snarled Bob, who, nervous and irritable, had very little disposition to submit to a temper ance lecture from such a source ; "what the duce has strength of mind to do with it? Strength of will, you mean ?" " Well," quoth Waffles, " what is the difference?" " I'll tell you the difference," retorted Bob, vindictively ; " brutes have no mind at all, but a jackass has more strength of will than any being that breathes." Dr. Thomas W. Evass, the well-known American dentist in Paris, denies that the property recently sold by him in New York ever belonged to the Empe ror Napoleon. FOR FAMILY USE.

Hence its wonderful cures, many of which are publicly known, of Scrofula, and all srrnfulniia rli Ulcers, Eruptions, and eruptive dis orders oi tne siun, x amors, .Blotches, Boils, Pimples, Pustules, Sores, St. Anthony's Fire, Rose or Erysipe las. Terror. Snlr. Tihnm SSl,l Head, Ringworm, and internal Ul cerations of the Uterus, Stomach, and Elver. It also cures other com plaints, to which it would not seem especi ally adapted, such as Dropsy, Dyspep sia, Fits, Neuralgia, Ifceart Disease, Female Weakness, Debility, and Eeucorrhoea, when they are manifesta tions of the scrofulous poisoas. It is an excellent restorer of health and strength in the Spring. By renewing the appetite and vigor of the digestive organs, it dissipates the depression and listless lan guor of the season. Even where no disorder appears, people feel better, and live longer, for cleansing the blood. The system moves on with renewed visor and a new lease of life. Prepared by Dr. J. C.
