A fe w years since, one pleaant dui

The landlord smiled and left th(

before a licensed iniiiister iade hi:

his jamily, were called in to witnes
the scene.
"Naouv, Mr. Tie em together," said

"I-Ioorahm!" shouted Jonathan at

You want about two and a half
quarts of water, for one quart of oid,
although strict, aceuracy inl this pfirtleft
lar is not needed.--Use a pitelter or
earthen vessel for measuring the acid
and water. You may now put in the
bones; they would be better to be
crushed or broken up; and -you mnay
put in as many as you. can putinch dovn
into the liquid. As they settle down
you can add more firom time to time.
Let this stand from six to twelve weeks,
stiring it with a stick from time to time.
and You will have a liquid super phos
phate of lite, as good as can he made.
When You wish to apply it to the
land, pour out the liquid, leaving the
undissolved bones still in the barrel,
and mix the liquid with some unleach
ed ashes-say two quarts of ashes to a
gallon of the liquid, and then mix the
whole thoroughly with a large quantity
ofdry manure, or even with any dry
soil, and it is ready to be sown upon
the field broad east, or put the hills
with the seed. If put'in direct contact
with the seed, hoe sure to have it well
mixed with a large quantity of muck
or substance, say two or three gallons
to a eartload. This mixing can be
done with a shovel on the floor or
lmproved snper ~psphate oflimc is
made by adding something that coi
tainis a large quantity of aniailOllil, and
in order to make of yours, as prepared
above, omit adding any ashes, but add
more or less urine, or liquid from1 the
manure heap an(d then dry with muck
as before directed.
After pouring out the liquid super
phosphate from the barrel, you can add
more water, acid and boties, and let
the processgo on niew.-The artiele
is just as good or even better aifter it
has stood one or live years. Should

liquid into another vessel, or set it on
the top of another, and let it through
