This is the story to illustrate the possi bilities of the Colorado Desert: Some three years ago a wandering home hun ter, having sold out his rude homestead in Los Angeles county, rigged up a team with a good supply of yearling nursery trees, seeds, etc., intending to go to Arizona, with his wife and two children. His way was through this desert. Rest ing one day to recruit his horses where a few bushes offered browsing, his children amused themselves digging a hole. The mother noticed that the loam sand was moist. In a few minutes she drove a crowbar down four feet below the hole and struck water. A wisp of straw in serted brought up by capillary attraction enough to prove the water good and to quench thirst. Next day they dug a well and at six feet found water plenty on the third day. ‘lf this miserable soil would grow anything we might squat here,’ said they. While debating a green spot appeared. It was the horses’ oats and hay seed which, with spilled water had grown to a lively green on the fourth day. * Where oats and grass grow every thing will grow; let us pitch our tent right here.’ And they did so. Very rude culture, with water, gave them in sixty days vegetable enough to supjHirt them for a year. From this rude begin ning see now, August, 1877, how quickly industry with trifling coin can realize a luxuriant home in a climate which knows no winter, and where vegetable growth is as active in December as in peaches amlTiananils. ,>! Si/alfa clover he cuts every month. Stacks of hay, cows, sheep, pigs and fowl make it look like a rich farm long established. The Use of the Lemon. Asa wriser in the London hnneet re marks, few ieople know the value of lemon juice. A piece of lemon bound upon a corn will cure it in a few days; it should lie renewed night and morning. A free use of lemon juice and sugar will always relieve a cough. Most people feel poorly in the spring, but if they would eat a lemon before break fast every day for a week—with or without sugar, as they like —they would find it better than any medicine. Lemon juice used according to this recipe will sometimes cure consumption: Put a dozen lemons into cold water and slowly bring to a boil; boil slowly until the lemons are soft, but not to soft, then squeeze until all the juice is extracted, add sugar to your taste, and drink. In this way use one dozen lemons a day. If they cause pain, or loosen the bowels too much, les sen the quantity and use only live or six a day until you are better, and then be gin again with a dozen a day. After ! using five or six dozen, the patient will i begin to gain flesh and enjoy food. Hold on to the lemons, and still use them very freely several weeks more. Another use i of lemons is for a refreshing drink in summer, or in sickness at any time. Pre pare as directed above and add water and sugar. But in order to have this keep well, after boiling the lemons, queeze them and strain carefully; then to every half pint of juice add one pound of loaf or crushed sugar, boil and stir a few min utes more until the sugar is dissolved, skim carefully, and bottle. You will get more juice from the lemons by boil ing them, and the preparation keep bet rte. A Nose Fashioner. Dr. Cid, an inventive surgeon of Paris, noticed that elderly people who for a long time have worn eye-glasses support ed on the nose by a spring are apt to have this organ long and thin. This he attributes to the compression which the spring exerts on the arteries by which the nose is nourished. Not long after ward a young lady of 15 consulted him to see if he could restore to moderate dimensions her nose, which was large, fleshy and unsightly. He took exact measurement, and had constructed for her a “lutieite priore-nez ” —a spring and pad for compressing the artery —which was worn at night, and when she con i viently could during the daytime. In ! three weeks a consolatory diminuation was evident, and in three months the young lady was quite satisfied with the improvement in her features. This story recalls Captain Marryatt’s phrenological i developer. Whittier’s Slow Popularity. An intimate friend of Whittier savs that Muzzey of Cornhill (Boston) bought the poet’s copyrights years ago for SSOO and a percentage on the sale of his books, and by putting them in neat cov ers made them quite profitable, to the poet’s amazement. Ticknor & Fields made an arrangement with Whittier after Muzzey’s death, and put him in blue and gold, but he had little benefit from these because of the $1,200 he had spent in buy ing back the copyrights from Muzzey’s estate. “ Snow-bound,” wdiich the au thor thinks a rather indifferent piece of verse, surprised him by its sudden popu larity, which floated his other poems also, so that one winter morning he could remark to a visitor: “Thee will have to excuse me, for 1 must go to the office of the collector.” Then with a humorous gleam in his eye, he added: “ Since ‘ Snow-bound’ was published I have rist n to the dignity of an income-tax.” The sky-parlor boarder suffers from roora-atics. — Pori*.

Mr, B. had advertised for one thousand pickers, on a given date. The pickers came, but the berries were not ri jk? enough to gather, and Mr. B. declined to have them picked. Many of those who had come could illy aflord to wait a whole week at their own expense, and were not only greatly disappointed, but highly indig nant, and disposed to kick up a lively muss.

Fest, a farmer, residing in the town of Oak Creek, ar rived at Milwaukee with the intelligence of a runaway accident, which, at five 1 o’clock, had occurred on the Howell road a short distance beyond the city limits, by which his wife, Susanna Fest, had been almost instantly killed. The be reaved husband’s statement of the oc- I currence is in effect, that he, with his wife and a fanner neighbor were in the I wagon together, and as they were going down the steep roadway known as the Wilcox hill, the end of the wagon pole slipl>cd from the neek-yoke ring, and the horses ran, thrusting the detached end of the pole into the ground with such force as to overturn the wagon, and throw its occupants to the ground. Mr. Fest and his neighbor escaped unin jured, but Mrs. Fest was caught under neath the wagon in such manner that her back was broken. The unfortunate ; woman told her husband as he came | to her assistance, that she was fatally in jured, then at once became unconscious and died soon after reaching a neighbor ing house, to which she was taken for ; treatment. An inquest in the case was conducted by Coroner Kuepper next ; day, and a verdict of death by accident was rendered. (lot Sick of It. Near Leominister, in England, a few days since, a servant girl, while sitting before her mistress’ fire at night, said to a fellow servant: “If you won’t lave me, I’ll drown myself,” and at once ran out and jnmped into an adjacent stream of water. She then got out and ran to Stockton, at which place she jumped into the river, but two women rescued her. She jumped a third time, but was got out just as two men appeared upon the scene. One of them, nearing w’hat was amiss, said to the woman: “If you w'ants to drown yourself, miss, come this way, and I see you does it. ’ He then took her to another part of the stream, and dipped her tw r o two or three times over head until she was nearly exhaust ed, and erving hard for mercy promised not to repeat her foolish conduct. She was brought out thoroughly drenched, but evidently cured.
