IAFI SrrTAc.--The Scientitie American says: Sunmac is larg&tly used in tan iiing the li:er kinds of leather, es pecially in the imaniufac'tnre of hard giainedl n:orocce and similar goods. '. S. It is also bnrployed as the base of ma ny colors in calico and delaine print ing. Probably the consuulption of am this artiCle throughout the country for all rurposies agg rgateR more than 120,(tEO tons, of which shaout two-thirds arw imn!oiorted fro m Sicily, not because ijust as good sumac can not be grown in this couutay, but becarse, until a pF few yearsw ago, our people did not nde know its value, or in what way to Rout prepare it for the market. The an- Alad mac ot Virginia, Maryland and Ten- tey, ;, nessee in particular are said to be the IL4i Ibest in tihe world, and even their be:n; worst varieties have bean oficially a3y, Sp.ronounced 'oy experts to be balter ters than any imlorted froml Sicily. Al- chit most every farmer has a clump of an these butlhes. They are called by ther .some 'ehocmaike;" by others, "led 'I shoe;:take." Probably many farmers they may have tried to kill them by cut- 5, oI ting down. If they have, they know Nett howv d.:i.cult a task it is. It grows Jam like asýarag:s, all the better for be- ( iii cut; aund when once started upon and a lot and cut oice a v'ear, it is as easy 'P to cut as fodder. Th;e only trouble is hein in curing it properly. This imiust be use tlone with all the care that is given to and tobacco or hops. Exposure, after I) t cutting, to a heavy dew, inljures it, of au'd a rain-storm d&traict materially T (rout its value. It is cut when in full 5 w leaf, and when properly dried is and ground, leaves and stalks together. pert An acre in full hearing will produce ,4, not les than three tons, and when cur fit for market it is wortlh from $80 to the jl10 per ton. The "manuflacturers," Il t us the carers are called, pay about per! one cent a pound for it in a green qua state. A sumac-mill coats about of $,3,000. W rAT is MANcnu t-Any thing which, upon being applied to the soil, causeo it to produce a more abundant crop, is manure. Manure is of three kinds--natural, mental and mechani cal. Natural manjure is anything which, iteing decomposed, assists the earth to s6pport pl;at life. It was nature's origital agent' in preparing the barren waste, which our earth 8 formerly was, as a fitting abode for in 1 mat'. The progress of decay and bi 'death in the taulitial awtd vegetable kiilgdoumi is the only manole of creat ing natural manure. The final dea tiny of all aniomal and vegetable life is to be transformed to natural nma nure. This is the begillniug as well as the sending of all earthly things. U Mental manure is bIrains--ºot the JI animal composite which we call our brains, but the active, creative prin- l ciple, which is the guiding power of Ji main, and wlhich, when applied to the operations of farming. produce the W third kind of manure, the mnechani- by cal. Mechanical manaure is the result th of brains applied to rural affairs. r Mechanical mteasures are of more real I va'ne to tihe farmer than either or both of the other two. Mechanical a measures con u st of plows, harrows, cultivators, rollers, spades, shovels, ar rakes, &c., id oneces. If the farmer re Sbhooks oi to the meclhanical manures guides tihem by a thorough applica ti,:n of the mental llIultl'O,,. and stirs up the inatural nianulre, he farms un rin drstandmigly, lie loosens up the soil, N the life-giving atnuaphere enters in, La heat and moistlire, in contradietinc tion to cold and wet, pervade tue earth, niture asserts her prerogative, seeds find themselves in a congeial element, the growing crop feels the Smg treble imjulse, matures, and comes dc I al to hIarvest abundantly. h. All these, manures are dependent o , upon one another. It is Efirst neces sary to cover the earth with the nat - lurall;.then tile mental comprehends the necessities of the ease, and ap plies itself to thle good work, and, calling in the aid of her oldest son, I the mechanical, so manipulates oar 'omother earth that smiles spread over her whole face, finually bursting into a laugh of golden joy, which ringls r., through all the happy harvest. "And thus may we three meet again, Whene'er we sow oaut fields to grain." To Bake a Beefs Heart.-CCut it open, remove the ventricles, and let it soak an hour in lukewarm water, to free it from the blood. Wipe dry wcith'a cloth, and parboil in a little water for twenty minutes. Make a rich stiling, fill thie heart with it, and secure it with a string. Let it bake an hour and a halft;or two hours, with a half pint of water, in thie oven or dripping pan. The gravy will not need any thickening.
