IaVB AS CbtEUT AND DfiY FODDEH. Au exchange gives in He experience in using rye as a grvij unmnm feel, and pronounces it as excellent feed if cnt when coming into ear. This has been used both for horcn and cows. The journal adds : " To feed rye that has been cut ripe, we would thresh it. irrind the grain along with corn or oats, cut the btraw in a fodder-cntter, moisten it with water, snrinkln n. lmnrlfnl f wall nnd tLree-quarters of the ground feed . upon a barge pailful of the moist cut straw, This makes a very good feed fur an ordinary sized horse whea work ing moderately." Dots. Bots are the larva) of Hie horse gad -fly (Entrus cquus), and are in a condition exactly equivalent to that of the caterpillar of a moth or butter fly. They therefore can not breed or rrproduco themselves in the stomach of a horse, being imperfect inseots and in cnpablaof breeding. It is easier to prevent their presence iu the horse's stomach than to get rid of them. If the yellow nits or eggs which may be seen upon horses' knees or shoulders in July or August are cashed oft" with warm wa ter, or scraped off with the edge of a knife, the horse can not lick them off and carry them to their temporary rest ing place. Kvery farmer should learn the natural history of the inseots and animals with which he comes in contact; then he would know how to treat them with propriety. How to Takb the "Cowy " Odob Orr of Milk. Ono of the difficulties the milkman and cheese factory have to contend with is the " cowy " or animal odor that appear in freshly drawn milk. It is worse even than the animal heat, or rather more troublesome to get rid of. It is much more perceptible of course iu hot weather than it is in cold, and varies in intensity with the health and condition of the cow. To remedy this an inventor has contrived the fof lowing : It is simply a tin pail, the bottom of which is perforated with one or two rows of holes. The milk is turned through a strainer fastened over the top, and it comes out through the hol s. It starts in streams, but before it gets down more than a foot or fifteen inches it is separated into drops and all aired. Well, we all know what a de odorizer pure air is. Almost any farmer can get up a simplo arrange ment which will serve the purpose very well, or if he can't do it himself he can go to the tinman and get him to punch holes in the bottom of a pail and hang it np over a can or other vessel, so that in dropping down through the air it will be thoronghly aerated. Bat it must be in pure sir. The air of a filthy cow-house will not do it. Haiutwa Potatoes, the poetry of common life and costly charm pf Del monico s anu l'arner s, can uo made in perfection in any kitchen, by tho use of very simple apparatus consisting of a sharp blade set slanting in a wooden trough with a narrow slit in the bottom, two wire screens or sieves, and a com mon spider. Select 8 larce potatoes. pure them and slice very thm with the cntting machine, soak them in cold wutcr for two hours mmI stir common table salt into the water, one teaspoon f al to a quart, and allow them to remain in the brine half an hour longer. Tour them upon the screen to drain and put on a spider with a pound of clear lard over a brisk hro. ipe the sliced po tatoes dry on a towel, wait until the lard is smoking hot and pour large plateful into the spider. The result is like a small sea iu a white squall, and now tne cook shows tlio artistic soul. which every votary of that noblest of the arts must possess to be worthy of me name. I'auont ana calm, with Rteady and incessant motion of the skimmer she provents adhesion of any too affectionate slices, and watches care fully for the tender blush of brown ness to appear. (Slowly it creeps and deepens nutil it rivals the fragrant Iluvana. Haste then takes the place of caution, lest any martyrs burn for the perfection of the others ; and they must lie quickly spread upon another sieve to drain until dry and greaseless enough for the fairost fingers, then served hot, to melt away like the fallen leaves of autumn. When to Cut Gbass fob Hay. Only those farmers who have a pet theory on N tho subject now hold that it is best to j postpone haymaking until the grass is ; thoroughly ripe. This idea, no doubt, arose from the notioD the taller the grass the more bulk and the more nu triment it will afford for stook. To this was added a belief that, after cutting, the hay should be allowed to remain in the field until thoroughly dry, the dan ger being that, if any dampness re mained, heat or mould would surely ruin the crop after it was housed. The most advanced farmers now hold mod ified views in regard to both these i putula, aud the praotiut of our auoes tors in this respect ore fast going out of fashion. It is a fired law of all venera ble life that when a plant has reached maturity it begins to deteriorate by re turning to the gronnd, or throwing off into the surrounding air a percentage of its nutritions properties. TIhh may on good ior me land, out it, is not goo. I for the stock. The requisite return can be made with better advantage to the land after the animalB have extraoted from the stalks all that is good for them. The object of the hay-maker should bo to cut ins crop just when it is at its fullest vigor, when the stalks are tender and juicy, and before they havo begun to stiffon for a natural death. I taken at this time and prop erly cut, the action of the sun will seal up the exposod ends of the grass, bot tling up, as it were, the major part of the sap inside tho stalk. A few hours of summer sunshine is enough for the rest, and sweeter, mora nutritious hay was Ecver made than results from such . early cntiing and such storing of the w--Chrintian Union. WiMJ Flower in the Oaiiden. 9. very g.irdeu of any pretenso to beauty should have its little nooks and corners for small, wild and exotic plants. These spots should not bo models of neatness in the way of handsomely laid walks or clean, well-cultivate I beds, but a rough, wild character may bo aimed at in stead. Old stumps, stone piled here and there, over which ivies, money wort, myrtle, and our American creeper may bo" encouraged to ramble in all their native freedom. Of course, larce trees should be near, to cast a shade, and partly hide it alj, but nmotng the i:orticos between the large object, plant the little wild flowers and ever green shrubs, such as rhododendrons, kalmias, hollies, wintergreens not for getting the trailing arbutus. To these may be added our wild ferns, moccasin flnvpm nitcher-nlants. and other beau tiful denizens of the woods. Many on these are difficult to transplant by ordi nary methods, but can b safely re moved during the winter months when there is no snow upon the ground. Take an old ax and with it chop out a ball of earth containing tho roots of the plants, and carry the wholo home and set out carefully. A little unfrozen soil cau usually be obtained to put around and over the clump of roots when aguin set out. Even li.rger ever greens from the wools and fit-Ids may also bo removed with comparative safety in the same way. But do not forget the little rustic retreat where delicate wild flowers seem to find a most con genial home, remembering that "a rare old plant is the ivy green." llural Yorker. MiscELLANEors. If a littlo lime is dissolved in the water applied to the soil, nearly every species of worm that is found will le killed, and tho plants not injured. Tobacco will also destroy most kinds of worms ; but lime is pre ferable, because it aids in dissolving the plant-food in the soil, thereby stim ulating growth. Watering the plants with lime-water, onoe a week, will be snflicient to kill the worms iu the soil and stimulate growth. Pus ing articles of steel after they have been thoroughly cleaned with un slaked lime will preserve them from rust. The coils of piano-wires thus sprinkled will keep from rust many years.

To prepare slips for planting it is recommended to dip the ends in collo dion containing twice as much cot ion as the ordinary material used in photo graphy. Let the first coat dry, and then dip again. After planting the slip, tho dtivelopment will take place very promptly. This method is said to be porticnlarly efficacious in woody slips, aud to succeed well in scions of the geraniums, fuchsias and similar plants. Tho white of an egg has proved, of late, tho most efficacious remedy for burns. Seven or eight successive appli cations of this substance soothe piv'.n and effectually exclude the burn from the air.

From a letter recently received from DeNorte. we extract the lollowinc de fcription of a soene which ocenrred in the court thrre, in which J. u. Taylor, formerly of Gerry A Taylor, of this city, took a prominent part : ' Taylor is counsel for defendant in a divorce case now being tried before the probate court. By the way the court is an ass, 'so to speak, as regards law, During the whole trial Taylor's nerves were taxed to the utmost to keep from becoming angrj at the rulings of the court against him, when he knew he was right. Finally when the judge made a fearful ruliug, Taylor sprang to his feet, Ins face fairly blazing with passion, and threw down the law books on the table with 6nch force that they bounded high in t he air. The j ridge turned pale as death and shrunk way duck in his cnair witn awe-struck coun tenance. The other attorneys (plain tift's) also got out of the way, soered nea' ly to death. Taylor shrinked with rage : 'I throw up this case. I will mt practice before such a oourt. By G d vou might as well expect a Hindoo to keep track of the midnight marches of the solar system as for me to keep track of the rulings of this oourt, and the pet tifogciogof these attorneys.

The court suspended until Taylor cooled off, pacing up aud down outside, then sent for him in tbe name of the defendant, aud he continued the case. When he sat down the judge said in a meek voice, I would like to speak to yon a moment, Mr. Taylor.'

THE COMET 6? 1811. Ilenilnlaeenccaof th Earthquake in Ilia MlaiLslppI Valley. The comet of 1811. of which so little fiuR been saM, attracted great attention in the United States, and was of extra ordinary brilliancy. It was attended by some very remarkable convul sions of nature, and it was said at the time that it(.renlrhed a point within 40,000 miles 'of the surface of the sun. It was visible for the first time on the 7th of September; 1811, and its situation was calculated by Professor Wood, of William and Mury college, Virginia, to be iu the same line with the polar star. The diameter of its body, exclusive of tail, uppeared to be one fourth of tho moou. From this time to the 21st of September, its dis tance from the run increased, as well as its brightness and tail. The comet was supposed to have passed its peri helion between the ith and 12th of the month with the amazing velocity of 400,000 miles per hour. It eould be plainly seen in the evening during the month of October. Prior to its ap pearance there weie unusual commo tions in the earth and the atmosphere in a variety of ways. A severe shock of earthquake was felt in Virginia. Both the American aud European sea coasts, as well as many parts of the terior of those continents, were um , -all harrassed by tremendous hiirricaui-s aud storms of rain and hail, aud a strange agitation of the atmosphere was noticed. But the most remarkable phenomenon attending the comet of 1811 was the earthquake of New Mail rid, in the valley of the Mississippi, which destroyed nearly 200 miles of the navigation of that river. It pre sented one of the fow examples of the incessant trembling of the ground for several successive months. Far away from any volcano, over an extent of country stretching for 300 miles from the mouth of the Ohio river the ground lose and sunk, and lakes were formed and again drained. The surface burst open iu fissures that were sometimes over half a mile long, and from these fissures mud and water were thrown as hieh as the tons of trees Du; ing the continuance of these convul sions the inhabitants distinguished two classes of movements the vertical and horizontal. The latter were regarded as far more desolating than the former, The disturbance continued over what has been si are called the " sunk coun try" until March, 1812, when they ceased. An eye-witness states that sub' sequently to some of the severest shocks the waters of the Missisxippi were so strongly impregnated with tbe effluvia of matter, suppoped to have undergone oombustiou as to be unlit for use; that the bed of the Mississippi was thrown upward in a onmber of places formerly deemed unfathomable so nigh as to ira pede the navigation: that in a sandbar that had lately made its appearance there was discovered a large quantity of coal, and that the forests adjacent were broken down by the abruptness of the nndulatory movements of the eartb. The post road between Natchez aud Nashville was covered with several little hillocks of fine white sand which had b.tn protruded upward to the 6iirface of the ground. A considerable tract of country was inundated with water waist deep, through which the terrified inhab itants were forced to walk to higher lands for safety. The water was so warm as to evidence the previous action of subterranean fire, an I so stiongly tinctured with com buf tible matter as to resemble fluids iui precnated with pulverized gun powder, and a mountain of considerable height had arisen in one night from the level of what had been before a plain. Simi lar convulsions extended to a greater or less degree over t he middle and western ttates. A dreadful tornado passed over the city of Charleston, South Caroliun, which was marked in its course bv de struction and death. Several hurri canes were experienced off the Ameri oan coast, which dismasted and other wise severely injured many vessels at sea, and some were totally wrecked. A violent shock of earthquake, felt at Nashville, Tenn., in October, 1811, caused great damage. But it was in tUe West IndifS and South America that the heaviest calamities occurred. The city of Caracas was a' most entirely deitroved by an earthquake and over 12,000"of the inhabitants killed. A ter rible volcano burst out near the Island of St. Michael's. From the immense quantities of lava, ashes and rocks thrown np from this volcano a new island was formed several miles in cir curaftrenco. The disturbances in the Mississippi ceased coincident with the earthquake at Caracas. The opinion bs to the causes of these violent outbreaks that prevailed among American scientific men over sixty years since was that they were produced by terrestrial and celestial electricity ; that from the powerful afiiuity of the two fluids the violent efforts of elec tricity to escne from the earth pro duced earthquakes. The ravages of tornadoes, hurricanes and storms that occurred during tho appearance of the comet mint hare had some causes, and that it was evident that they were phys ically produced, either immediately or remotely, by au extra mundone agency, for there was no matter, or physical combination of matter, on the earth possessing suffioient power to combine so much phenomena in so short a time, So the conclusion was that the comet was the cause of all the trouble in 1811 But the gaseous nature of the meteor was well understood. Possessing this unsubstantial charaoter, it might be as well to attempt to ascertain how far a cloud, driven against a mountain, will tend to break eff its top as speculate upon any danger to the earth from. col. Ikion with a comet. The effect of such a meeting would be the mixture of its gaseous matter with the atmosphere and probablo rise in the barometer, though there is no evidence to make it probable that all the comets in ex- istencew if put together, would have mass sufficient to produoe a sensible effect f any kind. If, however, the gaseous matter should condense suffi ciently to descend to the lower regions of our atmosphere, some effect might be produced on animol and vegetable life, as likely good as bad.

A Valuala Madlulnal Herb. By II. V. Pierce. M. D.. of tbe World's Dia peiiBaxy, Buffalo, if York. Smart VietA, aometimSB called Water Tepper, bat, known to botanists as Polygonum l'une latum, is a well known, very common and modmtt little plant found growing in ditchea, loierouodit, among rubljiuh and about brook and wator courses, floweri.-g in Anguat and September. In many vectionaof this country it u a deservedly lilglily esteemed family rem edy. Tuo Indiana also make great nse of this plant for the cure of various diseases. Rut lieitlir Die Indiana or the white learned one-tenth of Lie valnS of this modest little weed, as they bad uo motuo'lot extracting its virtues without the appliraiion of hrat, wlii, b der troys most of its pronertios, and usually made a tea from the dried herb, that bad beeu kept on band for a long time until it bad lost most of its medical properties. No educated chemist bad ever tried to make an aualvi-i of tbe plant and produoe an extract from it nion scientific principles, by a cold process, until I. having become convinced of tbe wonderful medi al viituea of this little weed, investiga ted its properties and made an extract from tbe fresh berb, by a cold process using no beat at all, but bringing out its Juices, oils and volatile properties complete and unimpair ed. If this remedy bad heretofore Wen valu able, whin prepared in the most crude man ner, from tbe long dried berb and by tbe ap plication of beat, i bat destroys so nmcu of its virtues, I reasoued that it must, when proper ly prepared, by a cold process and from tbe freshly dried berb, prove a wonderfully effica cious and potent remedy for human runVring. Aud I can assure the people, npor. my honor, as a professional man. tUat iu its use, since thus preparing it, my most "mcuine expecta tions have been more than icalized. I have found it to coii lain medicinal properties winch steeping in water could hot bring out at all. as they are resinous principles. With my Kx traot, containing all these medical properties iibimpaired, I have beeu enabled to produce most astonishing remertinj affect. By much study, a large experiei in (ireHcribing this and other medicines, an. - close observa tion, I have been euableu ; rompound and combine with tbe simple act of Bmart Weed extracts of other met. al herbs and roots, tbat greatly improve its power and use fulness, both as an internal and external rem ody besides they so flavor aud modify it as to remove its pungent, sniarty taste, and ren der it a pleasant remedy for both adults and children. The greatest diAiculty tbat I expe rience iu tbe way of introducing this most valuable remedy to the public is tbat Smart Weed is such a common and unpretending looking little herb tbat people are apt to think that it cannot possess any great or valuable medical properties. Had I prepared my Ex tract of Smart-Weed, put it np and labelled it tvith some great name, and told the people that tbe herbs of which it was composed were collected in Africa by the Arabs, carried across the Sahara Doeert on tbe backi of camels, and brought across the Atlanta ocean for my special use, aud that its ingredients were therefore very txpensive, I have no doubt that some would have boon thereby inspired with greater confidence in it. But I prefor to d.'al honestly with the people and tell them tbat tbe chief ingredient of my Compound Extract is the modest little plant teen growing by tbe road fide, in all j'arts of North America, and known as Smait-Weed. I believe that God has caused to grow iu each climate and region, thoso inedicinij plants best calculated for tho cure of tbe dii-eares that prevail in the section of the country where those plants are found that "tbe leaves were for .be healing of tbe nations," and that the fewer far-fetched reme dies we employ the better, if we would thor oughly investigate and understand thoso we havo at homo. So far as Smart-Weed has beon employed by the medical profession it has won golden opinions, notwits'anduig the fact that heretofore tbey have had only u very imperfect preparatiou of it to use, owing to beat being always employed iu extracting its properties. A celebrated medical author says : "Afiiendof ours bad an only child danger-' oimly ill with summer complaint. He had em plojed a great varioty of the usual means for relief but all appeared unavailing. The child was tiually given Smart-Weed aud it was en tirely successful. It arrested tbe vomiting and purging iu a short time aud without the aid of other medicine entirely restored the lit tle patient." As a remedy for dysoutory (or bloody flux) I have never seen my Extract of Smart Weed eqnalod, yet I have used all the most modern and approved medicines usually employed iu tbat disease. Tl Smart Weed is iendred still more eilicacioKS in all bowel complaints, cramps and pains iu tho stomach, by reason of tho Jamaica ginger, which, with other valuablo ingredients, is compounded with tho Smart Weed in making my "xtract hence the name Compound Extract t Smut Vevd. The ginger a id other ingredients not only add greatly to tbe value ' the Smart Wed as a remedy for internal .Mlministiation and tender it more pleasant to take by impart. ing an agreeablo llavor to it, bu, also enhance ltu vamo a an eitei ilicatiou. In all canes of diarrho'a, ntl in voting or old, a v. cholera infantum, tiio Hevere vomiting and with cold or clammy hkii Weed will give a)niont li, ute or chronic, n cholera and : ' of which are , feeble pulse, .xtract of Smart iiato relief and speedily effect a cure.

Thtu in especially tho caun when my Extract is given and indicates a perfect arousing of the whole h.yHtem, as if from inaction aud Bleep, and resembles a Bhock of electricity only that it is more lasting in effect. The whole system nnd its various functions are aroused to per form their normal functions by its electrical effect upon the nervous system. Hence, too, its great and masterly control ovor rlicrw.&tio and neuralgic affections, for which it is partic ularly ad viced by medical authors aud iu which it lias performed remarkable cureB. It should bo used iu these cases both externally and in ternally. Being a great diaphoretic, or sweat ing medicine, aids greallv in relieving pain, but, independently of that, it possesses groat anodyne or soothing properties, that render it far ahead of any "l'aiu Killer," (so called "Instant Koiief," "Golden Itoliof," or any othot plain remody that has ovor been offered to tho public .Besides, it is perfootly harm less, which ib not tho case with many of the preparations patented aud nut ill) for Bale bv Quacks, "Indian doctors," and those knowing nothing of the delicate and intricate structure of tho human system, nor the action of medi cine upou it. My Extract of Smart Weed is not a secret patent medic-nit, no patent having been asked or obtaiuod upon it, and its ingre dients are no secret all that I claim is that, as au educated and skilled analytical and prac tical chemist, I have devised a superior pro cess for bringing out and obtaining the most valuable properties of the plants from which my Compound Extract is made. This I havo done only after great expense in erecting nia chiuerv for iriimlinir. Dressing an 1 nernolutiij it. I wish particu arly to call public attention to iny Extract of Kmart Weed as a remody for ail colds, febrile aud inflammatory attacks. Nor cau I too highly pxtol it u 1 remedy for inflammation of Wie kidneys and blaildor, gravel, and to break np the cold stago of fovor aud ague or chills and fever. As an external application.it is a perfott Fanarea, if thore eror was one. No family can afford to be one day without it in the house. Itosidos it is equally as good for the horse as for man. It subdues inflammation of all kinds. TJsod as a gargle aud applied free ly externally to tho throat, it is a sovereign remedy in diphtheria and quiu-y or inflam'' a tion of the tonsil glands. To all wounds, bruises, sprains, burns, bee stines, insect and Biiake bites, frost bi es, chilblains, caked broast swollen glands, rheumatism, and. in short, to any. aud all ailmonts, whothur afllict ing man or beast, requiring a direct external application, either to allay inlhmma ion or soothe pain, or both, Extract of Hniart Weed cannot be excelled. I do not extol this tnedi cino as a cure-all, nor is it nccossary to men tion all i he disoases whoroin it will bo found to effect cures, as I have said enough to indi cate Ub properties and fhe intelligent will at once seo whorein its nse may properly bo ex tended.

It is said that there are now some forty offioes in this country where tickets over any road, leading from the city in which the offloe is located, may bo bought at rates lower than tbe company's. No partiality is shown. This is how it works, tickers of every road being ou hand : A person in New' York wishing to go to Cincinnati cau buy a ticket for $20. Because of competition, a ticket from New York to Chicago, via Cincinnati, can be had for $22. The fare from Cincinnati to Chi cago is ?.h Suppose the Chicago ticket is purchased, the ho' der of it is not com polled to visit Chicago. On reaching Cincinnati he stops. He baa paid out $2 more than he need to have done, but ho has in possession a ticket which at any time will take him to Chicago, and which is thus equivalent to $11. An oflice in Cincinnati will pay him 7 for this ticket, and await a purchaser as $8. Again : Tickets are often purchased at the ofllces of railroad companies, which, for unseen reasons, are not nsed, and these come in to swell the business of the brokers' offices.
