We do not advocate the vegetarian system of diet, but in order to letpJur readers see how one of the leaders in this refom (f) Prof. Francis Newman, lived for a given length of time we reprint the following from the pen of that gentleman, from ia recent nunm her of the London Dietetic Reformer. The writer says in introducing the subject: "The question has so often been put to me, 'But actually, what do: you get for dinner f' that I at length resolved to keep a register of my dinners for an entire month. At first I intended to give every day lit erally, but on finding that from net having vegetarian mesemates to fin ish my dishes I often had nearly the same dinner for two days together, ur the principal dish three days. I thought this accurate" publication of my economy to be a needless bit of autobiography. I have therefore generally omitted such repetition. If any one new to vegetarianism should read through the list of these nine teen dinners eaten by me in June, I fqar he will rather think me a luxuri ous epicure than pity me as an asce tic." Following is a list of the din ners as recorded by Prof. Newman: 1. Peas pudding from split peas, with onion sauce, in which is sage and parceley. Boiled cabbage. Stewed gooseberries and rhubarb. Curd and whey. 2. Savory pie, of vegetables, with topioca. Broth from yesterday's peas (better than any mutton broth), with slice of brown bread' and butter. Baked pudding of rice, sago and'Sul tana raisins, with top of bread and butter. 3. An omlet, with savory herbs. Spinach and cabbage. Stewed rhu barb with greengage jam and some of yesterday's baked pudding. . 4. Boiled barley pudding with lul tana'raisins, no milk or sugar, but sa vory herbs. Cabbage.

It is a notorious fact that itinerant I circus companies pay very poorly and i that the man who does not get his money from then in advance is not t likely to get it at all. Col. Bangs of i the Argus has suffered a good deal i from these concerns, and when "The Great European Circus and. Metropo litan .Caravan" tried to slip off the other day without settling its adver- 4 tising bill, he called upon the sheriff , and got him to attach the Rocky Moun- 1 tain bear for the debt. The bear was 4 brought in its cage .and placed in the a . composing room, where it consumed i n fifteen dollar's worth of meat in two i days (the Colonel's bill was only i twelve dollars) and scratched one n trousers.-leg off of the reporter who ar was standing in front of the cage, I in giving the foreman a lecture in zoolo ., gy. On the third day the bottom fell ,e out of the cage, and as the Rocky I )f Mountain bear seemed to want to I r roam around and inquire into things, I r. the whole force of conapositors all at I oe once felt as if they ought to go sud- i n denly down stairs and give the ani- 4 at mal a chance. With that mysterious a it instinct which distinguishes dumb if animals and which goes far to prove Lt that they have souls, the bcar went I t- at once for the door of Batrgs's sane *t tup and broke in just as the Colonel - was in the middle of a tearing edito o rjal ou ,n "The Thilrd Ter and our r tendefncies towards Coesar m." The I Colonel, 'howeter, did not hesitate f to knock off. He stopped at once if and emerged with a fine, airy grace e through the window, bringing the If sash with him, and then he climed up d the water spout to the roof, where lihe * sat until ahotk and ladder company I came and took him off.. The Argue i- did not issue for a week, for although !- the Colonel bombarded that bear with .- shot guns pointed through the-win dows, and although the fire engine s, squirted hot water at him, be got d along very comfortably until Satur d day night, when he tried to swallow d a composing stick and chocked to death: When they entered the room b they found that the animal had upset r is all the type and had soaked himself h in ink and then rolled over' nearly I r. ev.ery square inch If thie, floor, while I- the .Colonel's leader on' the ~Third i 4 Term was saturated with water and I perforated with shot hbles. After I. this, circus advertisements in the At gus will be paid in advance.-Dan e buty News. Prescriptiln for the Cuire of Dluankenness., SThere is a curious prescription in t England for the cure of drunkeonesse, by which thousands are said to have been assisted in recovering them sielves.

L Itlslbetterto to be flush in the ] s pooket than In the face. Up a Tree. From France, that land of romance, core a new and pathetic story. A Young man, in the blooml of health and vigor, was engaged to be mar ried to a beauteous maid. This in genuous youth had one eye fixed on the main chance, and arranged with his future father-in-law that on the day of his marriage certain real es tate should be transferred to him. The memorable morning arrived ; the air was laden with' the perfame of flowers, the birds sang, and the vil lagers held a festival similar to those seen in Italian operas. The bridal party reached the chapel, which lay ensconced among traditionary chins. Thrusogh its churchyaid nlancldered a streamlet whose survey ripples gliit ened in the morning sun. Punctual to the time, the;ctre arrived anmd tool, a preliminary pinch of s5u1|t' as lie surveyed the people before him. Everybody settled into his or her al lotted place. The ceremony was about to be commenced, when it suld. denly struck the bride that the bride groom was non est. Clasping her hand to her heart, with a pierc ing. shriek she fell senseless. Clear as a bell above the clamuor that ensued, was heard the voice of the father calling upon his friends to go in search of the missing one. High and low they hunmtet, .but the, game could not be found. At last they dis covered. the object of their search comfortably ensconced among the spreading brances of a lofty oak. On being, requested to descend, hie in quired "if they saw anything green about him," to those below, who, hav ing their eyes on his surroundings, replied "plenty." In the midst of an interchange of violent epithets he gave a characteristic remark some what to the effect that "he be blamed if he would till that there real estate was transferred." While the bride was thus bowed down in anguish, and the bridegroom was boughed up in the tree, the father-in-law tore his hair, and amid sobs and tears urged the unreasonable nature of the re quest, but to no effect. Finally the document was brought forth, duly signed and the recalcitrant bride groom slid down the tree; After the necessary repairs had been made in his pantaloons,. with his reutes seour ed and his rents sewn up, the bride groom adjourned with the rest of the party to tlhe cha 1l. The' bride re covered frt. her aint..tlhej.Mr taok a fresh pinch of snuaff, and the knot was tied- - WET BooTs.--What an amount of discomfort wet boots entail, to be sure; and how well we all, recall the fretful efforts we have now iand then made to draw on a pair of hard-bak. ed ones which were put by the fire over night to dry. Damp and adhe sive within, they are without stiff and unyielding as born. The follow' ing simple devite will rob the cold, wet bain-yard of a slushy winter of half itt promise ,of discomfort for the next morning: When the boots are taken pff fill them quite full with dry oats. This grain lias a great fond' ness for damp and will rapidly absorb the last vestageJ of it from the wet leather. As it takes; up tihe rpois ture it swells and fills the boot with a tiglhtly-fitting last, keeping Its form gIodiahd drying the leather without hardening it. In the morning shake out the oats and hang them in a bag near thie fire to dry, ready for the iiext night, draw on the boots and go happdily abont'the day's work. To baniph rats, plant asphodel near the barn or' stable where they are, obr put some ins their holes. Rats hjdve snuch an aversion for this plant .that they will quit the premises where it is. If they are in drains or in cellars, scatter sulphate of iron (copperas) in their runs. The copperas should not be dissolved. It isowr best and cheap eat disinfectnnt.. The sulphuric acid burns their feet, and they leave in a short time without dying. This will be appreciated by every housekepep' that hai had to endume the stench of S dead rat.--Comntry Gent.

Farm and Household Column. To KEEP EGos OVER WINTER. The Farmer's Advocate, Loudon, On tario, recently offered a prize for the best method of keeping eggs over winter. The first recipe below took the prize. What ever eaeldes th. air prevents the decay of the egg; What I have found to be the most successful method of doing so is to place a small quantity of salt butter in the palm of the left hand and turn the egg round in it, so that every pore lof the shell is closed; then dry a suflicient quantity of bran in ai oven (be sure you have the bran well dried, or it will rust.) Then pack themr with the small ends down, a lJiyer of bran and anitoter of eggs, until your box is fall ; then place in a cool, dry place. If done when new laid, they will retain the sweet *nmilk and card of a new laid egg for at least eight or ten months. Any oil will do, but salt butter never becomes rancid, and a very small quantity of butter will do a very large quantity of eggs. To insure .freshness I rub them when gatheied in frointhe nests, then pack when there is a sufticient quantity.--E. Alexander: Mrs. Wm. Church says the best way she finds is to "take a, pot or pail, or any thing convenient, pult about an inch or two of meal or any kind of brand (I generally take khorts from flour--being a farmer's wife, I have it on hand) in it, put.a layer, of eggs, either end ddwin,6ilose together; then cover with meal,ý nother laaer of eggs, and so on.. Intil the box is full; occasionally giving it a ;hake to fill well between the eggs r This plan I have adpipted for yea'4 wlth sieaess, and the last when usedL*bdeh is of ten the' end of April. and bbgiuning of May--are as good.as thefrst. I cop meuce to pack in .September. The whole secret lies in carefully selecting fresh eggs, packing on ends and keep. ing the air from them. 'Keep in a dry, cool Iplace. J. B. Strathuairn tUs:, "I takp a tub of.any size nod put a layer of common salt ibout an inch dlfep in the. bottom. Then gresee .ho eggs with butter, and places them in the salt with the snallend. down, so that they will not touch the, wood of the tub nor each ,other; then 1tll thq va cancies withi salt,' and cover theni again about at hich deep, as before ; then place another- layer 'of eggs as before; then salt, alte nately,ltill the tub i .fill: then covreri the tg ith salt, and pmt them where the' will lot freea. I have kept'8ggemow this manner from September tall April, as good as fresh eggs. The grease.on the shell keeps tile sBlt from penetia ting, thereby keeping the, eggs fresh, while the saving qualities of the salt keep them ' from becomlht' putrid. This recipe is both ' healed and'good, as the salt can be fod!to cattle after. ward." . Emily Audinwood, Stag'teard Plains, P.
