3 HOUSEHOLD AND FARM. Early Feeding of Steer. Gradually the plan of feeding off young will grow upon uh, the fact is rapidly being impressed upon teedera and consumers that the old-time custom of keeping feeding stocK till fully grown, haa had it? day. Consumers are learning that high-bred tock attains goou growth, and that the side9 and top are so well made up of goou, thick muscles, that the cuts areot good thickness: that the meat is wen filled with rich juices, and even at the age of a year and a halt' it has lost all indications of greenness want of maturity is ol mo very best quality and beefy. A salmon that weighs a pound is as good tor the table as one that weighs two pounds. A tat cnicnen at twelve weeks is as good eating us the hen ot two years, and better. The fat lamb of six months is better mutton than tue oiu sneep. Ann, oia usage and piejudice to the contrary, , the steer ot two years, or the long vearnng, it oi deep breeding and well fatted, will make beef of the very best quality ana uavor. The idea of greenness or immaturity in veal or roast pig, is apt enough ; because in these cases the transformation from calf meat to beef, or in the other case, from the meat of the sucking pig to that ot the corn-fed hog, has not taken place. The milk on which these young animals live, while it contains the re quired constituents for making bone, muscle and fat, still is light food, and is used tor building upon a juvenile foundation of tissues. The exact period when the calf ceases to bo a calf, uo far as its meat product is concerned, has not been fixed. The transition is gradual, depending upon growth and approximation toward maturity, as in the caso ot the tomato or peach. Yet, in the calf it depends in quite a degree upon the food given. In proportion as the calf is early accustomed to food like that given to the fattening steer, will its flesh change from veal to beef. That the change is fully ready to occur, and does take place be fore the beast has arrived at the age which makes him a yearling, is quite certain. That the flesh ot tho well fattened long year ling is mature containing all of the constitu ents belonging to the three-yoar-old is quite certain, having the same muscles (lean meat), with a similar proportion of fibrin and rich meat juices, is equally certain. That its flesh is more tender, hence, by lair inference, easier of digestion, is quite reasonable to assume. That the flesh of the young steer is less liable to be lessened in healthfulness through local disease in any organ, is well assured, as the aged steer, through long continued exposure to miasmatic influences, is quite liable to con tract liver derangement, resulting, if long con tinued, in organic disease. Healthy organs insure healthy digestion and healthy meat pro duct. The internal functions, disturbed by local ailment, or even by indigestion, furnish unhealthy additions to tho blood directly through the faulty digestion, or indirectly through absorption of pus, in local ulcers; and these may be of considerable extent if confined to the liver, and quite apparent if in other and more sensitive parts, and yet not cause the animal to appear especially sickly. Now, these contaminations are avoided in the flesh of the young steer, because, like anew carriage or harvester, all the parts are sound and strong. No rot has entered any of the joints, nor are any of the hearings going wrong from disturbing influences. Feeding off young will result in stimulating to greater improvement, as unimproved cattle cannot be finished up at two years, or as long yearlings. Nothing less than a high grade can go forward to the slaughter in gowd shapo so young, neither can it raise the beam at a figure that will insure thick, salable cuts. When steers are more generally marketed while young, more breeding cows will be re quired to furnish the supply needed. Nation al Live Stock Journal. Tub-Washed Waal. Tub-washed wool is wool that has been washed in the fleece after it has lett the sheep's back. It is practiced to some extent, but not very much in the est. JSo machinery is em .ployed, so far as we have learned, except at woolen mills. I here all wool Is scoured, (how ever well it may have been washed previously,) facilities being provided and experts employed to perform the work in the best possible manner. When growing in its natural state, wool is lubricated and preserved by nature with a sticky substance generally called "grease." This grease forms a very considerable part of the weight ot unwashed wool, the lowest pro portion being about 50 per cent., and tho high est about 75 per cent. It consists of a kind ot fatty soap, composed largely of potash, no soda being present. When wool is washed, either on the sheep's Dack or in a tub, a portion of this grease is removed ; and more, ot course, is taken out when the washing is fairly done in a tub than in a stream or tank, and thus the wool should bring a higher price. But as a rule manufacturers prefer to buy wool not tub-washed, for reasons that will pres. cntly appear. Before wool can be used for spinning the grease must be removed, and in order not te injure the fiber, as well as to pre serve its natural bright color, methods are em ployed with which people generally are not familiar. Sometimes the delicate fiber and fine luster of excellent wool are destroyed by being washed with soap utterly uuadapted to the purpose, and by persons who are not in formed how the washing should be done. Soda soap is uusuited to it, for wool washed with it is inclined to be harsh and brittle, with a yel low tinge or color. A good potash soap is best adapted to the purpose. Nature points out what is best in preserving the wool with a fatty potash substance; and in such matters man finds that nature is always correct. A suitable potash soap must, therefore, be preferable to soda soap for removing the natural preserving Bubptance. We may reasonably conclude, then, that a strong alkali, such as soda ash, soda crystal, or.till worse than either of them, lime, should by no means be used. Seen under the microscope, wool is found to be a most delicate fiber, each hair or filament being composed of concentric rings surround ing and overlapping each other similar to scales on the back of a fisn. A strong alkali, used alone, removes every trace of lubrication from beneath the covering of these minute scales, completely destroying the luster, besides unnecessarily diminishing the weight of the wool. But the effect of a neutral potash soap a soap containing neither a free or uncom bined alkali nor an excess of tallow is only to remove superfluous greasy matter from the wool adhering to the outside ot the fiber, while the internal condition remains undisturi ed. This will explain why the mills generally prefer wool that has not been tub-washed. With well constructed machines, the use of suitable soap, and with experts in washing, "grease" wool is thoroughly cleansed with a minimum amount of labor, and the wool is not dnrff?,,1 f'ther n fiber or mine.

My method of meeting this enemy has been to begin in time, capturing the white-winged butterfly that lays the eggs. If the cabbage grower is remote from other plantations of cabbage, considerable may be done in this way. But as a -rule the butterfly will lay its eggs, and the enemy must be met in its next tage. Water heated to about 135 or 145 de grees will destroy the worm without injuring the plants ; but this requires more care and la bor than will generally be given. With a lit tie more heat the plants may be injured, with less the enemy may escape. 1 have found white hellebore, such as is used for the currant-worm, equally destructive to the cabbage depredator. My method is to boil a gallon of water and dissolve in Jit one heaping tablo spoonful of the powdered hellebore. A very littlo sprinkled on tho plants will speedily tin ish tho worms. The use of Paris (Sreen or the equally poisonous Loudon Purple for this pur. pose cannot bo too severely discountenanced. The white hellebore is, it is true, sugutiy poi sonous: but not at all as Pans Green is. I only use the hellebore in early stages of growth. After the plants begin to head I use no more hellebore, but content myseii witn promoting vigorous growth by frequent uoe- me, and if need be, watering the plants. A pinch of common salt thrown on a cabbage plant in August will destroy the worm almost as well as the hellebore, and win nestues pro mote the tendency to form a solid, heavy head. Salt is in fact one of the best special manures for cabbage. My reason for not using it from the first is because, while very young, the leaves of the cabbage are tender and might be Injured. Besides, if I used salt from the first, the ground might be oversalted and the crop injured rather than tiencntou. jsran, lime ana other substances have been recommended to destroy or drive away the worm after the head . t .

The "kyanizing" process you inquire about, is not practicable on the ordinary farm The following is simple and effective: Burn the part of tho posts to lie set in the ground including the bottom end, just enough to leave a thin layer of charcoal all over the surface, and then dip them in hot fur or asphalt. The charcoal is indestructible by air and moisture ; the tar or the aspualt nils the cracks ana in terstices, and thoroughly protects the interior wood. A barrel of tar or of asphalt is readily obtainable in any large city, costs but little, and will furnish a dip tor several Hundred posts. Tho heating can be done in any large iron kettle, with care not to have tho material take fire. Tho charring can be done by build ing a large fire of waste brushwood and put ting on the posts, turning them to prevent too deep burning in one place. Ordinarily the cost of labor and material need not be over 2 to 4 cts. a post, while such preparation will increase three or fourfold their real value. As posts decay soonest just at the ground surface, "be tween wind and water," as the sailors say, it is best to have the coating extend half a foot above ground, and where looks are ot no ac count, the whole post may be similarly treat ed, which will make them almost indestructi ble by decay. American Agriculturm. ruining in June. We have tried pruning in almost all months of the year and on the whole prefer June. This being about the busiest month of the year, there is usually little time for pruning, and so the tavoritc time is eariy in tne spring, and many of our old orchards, in their rotting limbs and decayed trunks, bear testimony to the mischief wrought by the ill-timed use ot the saw and axe. Small limbs, an inch in diameter or less, can be taken off at any time with comparative safety. But tho thorough pruning called for in a long-neglected orchard is best done in the early summer. The sap is absorbed by the rapid formation of wood and leaves; the wood laid bare in pruning large limbs soon becomes seared, tho healing process around the edges of the wound begins immediately, and in a few years the wound will be completely cov ered with new wood and bark. There is no chance for decay as when large limbs are re- moved in early spring. There is far too little pruning done in tbe farm orchard. A dead limb should not be suffered upon the fruit tree. Good pruning leaves no stubbs, but cuts close to tne trunK or branch bearing tho excised limb. American griculturaht. Itawnre of Tliem.

O'Donovan Bossa held a select mass meet ing last night in a small up stairs room at 1 City Hall Place. Less than forty "men of Irish blood and Fenian spirit" were present. The doors were closed on all others. O'Dono van Rossa, who sat at a round beer table, said : "The white slaves of America are going to cry out their eyes at Cooper Union to-morrow night on account of tho slaying of Cavendish and Burke, two men who represent a tyranny that has slain millions of our race. What are you going to uo about it?" The question was discussed by several speak ers, and it was finally determined to attend tbe meeting and do everything possible to defeat any resolutions that may be offered expressing detestation of the murder of Cavendish and Burke. Then O'Donavan Rossa read a docu ment, which he said was au authentic procla mation from the Executive of tho Irish Revo tionary Brotherhood, and had been sent over by cable from Dublin. It is dated May 8, the day after the first published reports ot the murders, and says thnt "there seems to be a grave misunderstanding as to the aim and scope of the late executions in Dublin." It calls Secretary Burke a monster, and Lord Frederick Cavendish, the brother of Lord Ilartlngton and the son of the Duke of Devon shire and a "lineal descendant of the infamous Lord Broghill, who hanged the gallant, patri otic MacKgan, Bishop of Ross," describes the Land Leaguers as "sate treason mongers," and concludes: Now, furthermore, we call upon our broth ers in America, particularly the Advanced Na tionalists, to aid by every means within their power the men who have carried out this ex ecution, and we hereby further declare they deserve well of their country. By order of the Exkcitivk ok I. R. B. The Exiles' Club, II. Davis, chairman, and J. S. Gahan, secretary, met at Military Hall on Thursday and adopted resolutions declaring their disbelief in political assassinations, but regret that Irish Americans have been so readv with so intemperate denunciation before lacts are known, and with oilers of blood-money to stimulate villains to further crimes. It will be time enough to do this, the resolutions say, when the Irisli-Americaus have denounc ed" the murders done by English soldiery, and offered rewards for their arrest anH conviction.

She was astonished when a clerk accused her of stealing a handkerchief, and refused to sub mit to a search. They dragged her, shrieking and struggling into a private room, tore open her clothes, and did not find the handkerchief. When her husband was told of this he hurried to the store and gave the clerk a thrashing, lie also brought suit for $10,000 damages, but as the clerk was likely to le confined to his bed a week by his Injuries, he consented to let that fact and $500 satisfy him.

Decatur is tho county seat of Wise county, which joins Decatur on the west and is about 25 miles from tho city of Denton. It will bo observed that tho rain fall for 1881 was 34.01 inches, 1.10 greater than at Pilot Point, and 118.38 inches for tho year ending March 31st, 1882.

WaHliuifrtoii Letter, Work in the Senate and in the House. Jhe Eade' Ship llailiray Mill. Mr. Conkling and the Cabinet. Ouiieau trill be Hanged. ( Hegular correspondence. ) Washington, D. C, May 16, 1882. This being the third Monday of the month, the session of the House wa9 devoted to action upon motions to suspend the rules for the pas sage of bills. The bill to extend tho charters of the Na tional Banks will be taken up again to-mor row, and an effort will bo made to reach a final vote. It is not probable, however, that this bill will be passed before Thursday, owing to the large number of amendments that will be presented. Tbe Republican caucus has decided to call up a number of contested election cases dur ing the week, and the Republican contestants will probably bo seated. The appropriations committee will soon bo ready to ask consideration for the Pension bill, and the Legislative, Executive and Judicial appropriation bill, both of which have been perfected by the committee and will probably be reported to tho House on Wednesday. THE SENATE. The 5 per cent, bill was taken up in the Sen ate to-day. It provides for the payment to the various public land states of 5 per centum of tho value of tho lands reckoned at the Gov. rnment minimum price which have been located by soldiers' scrip or bounty land war rants within their respective boundaries. When this bill and the Board of Health bill shall have been disposed ot, an animated con test for precedence may be looked for among the respective champions of tho Bankruptcy bill, tho Geneva Award bill, tho Japanese In demnity Fund bill and the Fads' Ship Rail way bill, the claims of all of which have al ready, on sevefhl occasions, been argued for immediate consideration. Tho prospect for tho passage of Mr. Eads' Ship Railway bill is not bright. It is difficult, without actual demonstration, to prove tbe feasability of trans porting loaded ships across the Isthmus. Dem onstration in this case will bo a very expen sive experiment. Mr. Eads is opposed by tho gigantic monopolies that have railroads made or planned across the continent, and also by the frionds of the Lesseps canal. Some very eminent engineers believe in the feasibility of the undertaking, while others insist that the jarring and shaking to which a ship would be subjected through transportation by rail would make her unseaworthy. The opposers of this argument urge that the shaking on a railroad prepared especially for ship transportation would not be as trying to the strength of a ves sel as is tho rude machinery with which every ship is first launched, and they urge, with much plausibility, that a ship built to endure the rough treatment of wind and wave will rest on these cars as in a harbor. Surely this is a wonderfully progressive age, and it is not impossible that before Lesseps completes his Darien canal, or turns central Africa into an- other Mediterranean, we may see ships mov ing across tho Mexican isthmus, over a track of immense width, supported on gigantic trucks, and drawn by engines of stupendous strength. There are rumors, which, however, can I traced to no authentic source, that Mr. Conk ling will be offered the portfolio of the Secre tary of State, and that the present secretary, Mr. Frelinghuysen, wil! be made Minister to England instead of Mr. Lowell. Guiteau's appeal was lengthily argued be fore the court in banc last week. No decision will be rendered until the 2'2u of May, but the decision of the court below will lie affirmed, and Guitcau will be hanged on Friday, the iOth of June, just one year, lacking two days, from the date of his crime.
