Speed is everything in making this oake suoooasful. To Fny Ena Plants. Egg-plants should not be ohoson too large, as they are-inolinod to be pithy; peel carefully and out in alioee oue-qnarter of an inch thick; put the slices in lightly salted water, and allow it to remain for two hours. Dry perfectly before cooking. Take two eggs and mix oold in a pint of milk. Have dried bread crumbs or pow dered craokers. Dip the egg-plant in the milk and eggs, and then into the bread or cracker crumbs. Have in your fryingpan a piece of butter, and when it is very hot put in yonr (shoes and cook thoroughly. To have "fried egg-plant well lone, put the slioes when c ! in a piece of paper to absorb the grease. Usefdi, aHiNTO, Boiling water will remove tea stains and many fruit etains. Pour the water through the stain and thus prevent it from spreading over the fabric. Ripe tomatoes will remove ink and other stains from white cloth; also from the hands. A ieaspoonful of tur pentine boiled with white clothes will aid the whitening proofs. Boiled starch is mtteli improved by the addi tion" of a little spermaceti or a little salt, or both, or a little gum arabio dissolved. Beeswax and salt will make flat irons as clean and smooth as glass; tie a lump of wax in a rag and keep it for that pur pose; when the irons are hot rub them ....i. . i. .. i , wiiu mo win rag, men soour with a paper or rag sprinkled with salt. Kero sene will soften boots or shoes which have been hardened by water, and ren der them as pliable as when new. Kero sene will make tin teakettles as bright as new; saturate a woolen rag and rub with it; it will also remove stains from clcun varnished furniture. To be n MuccewifiirFnrincr. Tf Many years of experience and obser vation have taught us that two things are absolutely necessary to profitable .farming: the first a sottltd policy, and the second, thorough pulverization and manuring. What is meant by a settled policy is that a farmer should asocrtain the crops best suited to his land, as well as to the demands of the market; and having deoided on these, to stick to them through thtck mid thin, whatevor the fluctuations in price. He will And lttonu oiiener than mias, which is not the case with those who jump about from one thing to another, with no set tied rule to go by. No man should ever engage in a special business of any kind merely because some other individual has made money by it. It requires long experience to grow and market success fully any peoisl crop, such as broom corn, tobacco, etc., and we had better increase our experience with such pro ducts as we know than to fly to new ones, about the handling or cultivation of whioh we know but HI tie or nothing. It is in the better oulture and manuring, in farming, that the greatest improve ments are made. The most effectual way to lossen the cost of production is to increase the yield per acre. There are hundreds of farmers who for years have boen cultivating forty acres of corn for two hundred barrels, and twenty acres of wheat for two hundred bushels, and yet find it hard work to get along. To Ml such we should say, put half the and in olover and give such cultivation and fertilization to the other half as will enable you to raise as much grain on the thirty acres as you are now doing on the whole sixty. And although this could not be expected to be accom plished in a single year, yet there is ho question that time wonld soon bring it about. If you think the Bixty acres are too rauoh for you to undertake at onoe, try it on a few acres, and we will answer for it that after you have harvest J thirty bushels of wheat or seventy rive bushels ol "m to the acre on thes , you will be so disgusted with your old practice of growing the third of it that you will be very willing to increase the area of your heavier producing lauds. To Crow Pine WMat. A heavy crop of olover, upon whioh is applied m any fall from two to three hundred pounds of piaster, and as much more the following April or May, and the same summer treated to eight or ten bnshels of lime before breaking up, is erhaps the best preparatory process to insure three or four successive orops of w heat, especially if the peed wheat be saturated with brine and an additional five buabela of lime be applied at Ume of seeding. Salt is well known to be highly beneficial in preserving the healthy cdbdition of both (be bud and grain, while it is equally efficioions in the destruction of insects few worms or bugs snrviving in land in whioh mnoh of it is present. In many in stances, too, where it has been used on wheat at the time ol seediag, it has been fonnd to be of ease litis) aarvinA in mJ preventing rail and mildew. Recent reports from Tennessee, Missouri aud otin-r States whi i. mi-! has been most ii jcrioun, bktte that the application of salt to the toil (particularly where the seed wheat has been saturated with brine;, has almost entirely prevented it appearanoe. Indeed, from a large muss of testimony, both from English and American farmers, we find thai aalt, ap plied at the rata of ten, twenty and even thirty bushels to the sore ou land sown in Iieat, has gfveu larger returns from the cost incurred then from the appliga- tion of anything else. And it is for this reason that it has come to be so ex tensively used in Onondaga county, Now York, and Southeastern Illinois, where the facilities for its procurement at so small an expense are so great one farmor finding the application of ten bushels of lime to the aore to be of such servios to his wheat as to have induced him tu inrrriifH! the quantity annually appli d to his land to a thousand bushels. Application of I'urls trtn. Thomas Wittaker, in the American (hdlivtttor, says: List week I was plant ing potatoes, and 1 found the Colorado beetle feeding upon one of tfte sets be fore I got it oovered. My wife went to look at my early potatoes, which were just breaking ground, and picked off nearly half a pint. I immediately went to work and mixed Paris gT&en and land plaster in the following manner : I took a sheet of strong brown wrapping paper and on this spread the plaster, then sprinkled on some Paris green, and bringing the sides of the paper up over the mixture, I so rolled and crushed it that the green was soon evenly incor porated with the plaster. I added as much of the green to the plaster as to give it a slight green tint. This 1 ap plied to the vines by means of a little tin sifter, whioh did its work well; and the mixture did its work well, too, for we have only found dead beetles since. This method of applying Paris green 1 can recommend as a safe and tnhient remedy for the beetle; and I think if every one who raises potatoes would use efficient morins for a year or two, the jjioraao oeetie wonld appear in so small numbers as not to be thought troublesome or injurious. Uses to Which Seaweed is Piif. Mr. Stanford, the originator of the British Seaweed company, according to Harper's Weekly, has succeeded in ex tracting everything valuable out of sea weed. Having gathered his raw mete rial, it is stored under cover to drain, and then driedither in the sun's rays or heated rooms. The weeds are subse quently submitted to hydraulic pressure to lessen their bnlk, after whioh they are distilled in iron retorts kept at a low fed heat, the gas generated in the oper ation being utilized for carrying on sub sequent operations, or for lighting the factory. During distillation the sea Weed gives off a quantity of tor, which is redistilled, aud the volatilo oil which then passes over is treated with a weak solution of sulphuric acid, by which the red coloring matter is preoipitated. Having deoanted the residue of the tar into another still.greater heat is applied, and parafflne oil passes over. This is purified in the ordinary way with oil of vitriol and caustio soda. The pitch that remains is pumped into brick ovens, the heavy vapors and more paraffine be ing eliminated, and the solid portion iB burned into coko, whioh is eagerly bought up by iron-masters. It is rauoh more valuable than ordinary coke, be cause it is almost entirely tree from sulphur. Turning now to the con densers, we find that in the process of dis tillation a quantity of liquid has been left. Being allowed to settle, the tar by specific gravity falls to the bottom, and the lighter fluid, be j treated with lime, yields ammonia. It will thus be seen that these once despised woods now yield ohlorides of potassium and sodium, gas, paraffine oil, sulphate of ammonia, aoetate of lime, pure charcoal, ooloring matter, and iodine. By Mr. Stanford's process every ingredient is utilised, and, what is of far greater im portance, uome of flie precious iodine is lost during the manifold operations. Musical Precocity. Before he was eight years of age Men delssohn excited the wonder of his teachesi by the aoctiraoy of his ear, the strength of his memory, and, above all, by his incredible faoility in playing mu sic at sight. Meyerbeer at the tender age f six played at a oonoert, and throe years later was one of the best pianists at Berlin; while the genius of Beethoven showod itself so early that his musioal education was commenoed by his father at the age of Ave. When two yearn younger than this, Samuel Wesley, the musician, could play extempore music on the organ; and the distinguished German musical composer, Robert Sohu mann, also showed at a very early age a strong passion for musio, and remark able talents both for playing and com posing. Though be lost the use of his right hand at the very outset of his studies, he worked on with a giant's strength, struggling against ail ob stacles. . .-,1,.,- .- -si . Mmnie G. Ballard, in a poem, asks: 'Would yon love me as well, true heart, Had I a face less fair!' If you h"v $60,000 in bank, Minnie, a ohange of face will not dampen the ardor of his love but don't noourage a boil to sprout on yonr Grecian nose to try him. They not only disOgsre the beauty, to an alarming degree, but they are also very painful. !few Zealand. New Zealand consists of three islands, known as North Island, Middle Island, and Stewart Island, which latter is a small island lying to the south of the Middle Island, and containing only 780 square mflfls. The North Island coo tains about 44,000 square miles, having a rather smaller area than England. The Middle Island contains about 55, 000 square miles, -having an area about equal to that of England and Wales combined. In 1870 the population of New Zealand was 240,000. A census was taken again in March, 1878, by whioh the population was ascertained to be nearly 416,000, boaides 45.C00 Maoris, or natives, giv ing an increase in the white population of sixty-seven par cent, in eight years. The greater number of the Maoris live in the North Island, there being up ward of 40,000 of them there. They are scattered over nn area of 23,890,000 acres, giving less than one native to the square mile. The greater number of them are Christians, aid they have many churches and schools, and are daily more and more conforming to Eu ropean habits in their dress, manners and bouses. The climate of New Zealand is equa ble, the variations of temperature being comparatively slight. It must bo re membered that, as New Zealand is in the southern hemisphere, all the mete orological conditions are the reverse of those in countries in the northern hem isphere, excepting the oast and west winds, which are the same there as here. The sun is seen to the north at noon instead of to the south, and the moon also; while constellations which, like the Great Bear, are seen by us in the north tfn sky, are not visible at all in New Zealand. But the inhabitants of the southern hemisphere see many constel lations in the southern skies which are never Been by us in the north. Gold is found in considerable quanti ties in New Zealand, both as alluvial gold, which is obtained by washing the deposits of 'dirt,' with which the gold is mixed, and also in veins in the quart rook. The quantity of gold exported from the islands between April 1, 1857, and June 30, 1878, was 8,826,785 ounces, the value of which is set down at 64, 476,495 steriing. Of this, 711,801 sterling were exported in the half year ending June 30, 1678. Other valuable metals, suoh as silver, mercury, copper, lead, chromium, man ganese, and last, but most important iron, have been discovered in tho colo ny, and will be worked to advantage. The ooal fields are subdivided and let by government on terms very favorable to the lessees. There are in the islands between 160, 000,000 and 170,000,000 acres suitable for farming purposes, of which abont 50,000,000 are better adapted for pas turage, the remainder being better for agricultural uses. There are no large quadrupeds indi geuous to New Zoaland, a small kind of rat being apparently the only one; but all kinds of domestic cattle have been introduced, and thrive abundantly. The indigenous forest of New Zealaud is evergreen, and contains some very valuable kinds of limber. Many of the moro valuable trees of Europe and America have been introduced, and flourish with a vigor rarely seen in their original homes. Emit is abundant all over the colony, among the best of whioh are oranges, lemons, citrons, lo quato, peaches, apples, pears, grapes, melons, figs, aprioots, plums, and marfy other. mm The Little Scamp. About a week ago some young ladies got up a party to go on a moonlight ex cursion. The night finally arrived, and so did the moon, and it flooded field and river with a glow of pearly riohnese. When the party was ready to leave the house whioh had been appointed as the rendezvous, it was noticed that one of the most .charming young ladies of the coterie had a shawl on. 'What's the matter, Luoyf ' inquired one young lady. 'Are you afraid of taking cold?' 'No, no,' she replied. 'The thermometer is up at 86. You 11 roast if you wear that shawl.' 'I'm willing to roast,' she said, rather pettishly. 'Don't you know why she wears that shawl? ' laughed her lit tle brother, as he wipod some taffy off his mouth with his jaoket sleeve. 'You keep still, you John Henry,' soreamed the dear angei, as she turned a trifle red. Tht boy then got out of reach and yelled, 'I'll tell you why she wears that shawl. When she gets out on the river Bob puts his arm unckr it and hugs her, and nobody oan see through the game. ' The Model Mother-in-law. She is thankful to tho man who mar ries her daughter, and thus relieves her of a great responsibility. Shebeoomes a devotee to him. She coddles him with warm slippers and wadded dressing gowns, and with hot drinks when be has a cold. She multiplies her tender attentions when 'important business' has kept him out late at night, and fears that his devotion to business will wear upon him. She finds out the dishes that will tickle his appetite, and makes them with her own hands. With her he has two worshipers at home. She en courages bim to smoke She smiles on his bachelor friends. She studies him in every way. She makes her daughter cheerful while bo is at the club or other plaoes. She minds the baby while they go to entertainments, and never wants to go. She praises him to all as the best of husbands. She continually en joins upon her daughter that she never oan be thankful enough, She is a con stant sunbeam in the household, whioh makes marriage without a mother-in-law but half what it should be. A farmer, having lost one of his sheep, said to a neighbor: 'You know that big wether I had out In that lot. Well, I found him dead this morning, and now what I want to know is whether the Weather killed the wether or not,' Msjsjeatosa of PreateViU. la one of the departments at Wash ington is a esse open to public inspec tion, iu which are preset vad specimens of tbs hair of aU the President, from our fkst chief magistrate to Franklin Pierce. Tb hair of Washington is nearly a pur white, fine and smooth in its appearanoe. That of John Adams is nearly Mm same in color, though per haps a httle ooaraer. The hair of Jeffer son is of a different character, being s mixture of white and auburn, or a sandy brown, and rather ooarse. In his youth Mr. Jefferson's hair was remarkable for its bright color, The hair of Madison is ooarse and a mixed white and dark. The hair of Monroe is a handsome dark auburn, smooth and free from any mix ture. Ue is the only President, except ing Pierce, whose hair had undergone no change in color. The hair of John Qaicoy Adams is somewhat peculiar, being ooarse and s yellowish-gray in color. The hair of General Jackson is almost a perfect white, but ooarse in its character, as might be ; supposed by those who have examined the portraits of the old hero. The hair of Van Huron is white and smooth in appearanoe. The hair of General Harrison is a fine white, with a slight admixture oi blaok. The hair of John Tyler is mixture of whits and brown. The hair of James K, Polk is almost a pure white. The hair of General Taylor is white, with a slight admixture of brown. The hair of Mil lard Fillmore is, on the other hand, brown , with a slight admiature of white. The hair of Franklin Pierce is a dark brown, of whioh he had a plentiful crop. It is somewhat remarkable, however, that sinca Pierce's time no one has thought of preserving the hair of his suooessors. There are vacancies in the case; but there is no hair either of Buch anan, Lincoln, Johnson or Grant. Served Them Right. An Indianapolis exchange says: A brakeman on the Peru road, who isn't much for style, but a solid, substantial fellow, concluded to take the two daugh ters of his landlady to the Caslleton oamp-meeting, last Sunday, and pro cured transportation for the party from an obliging official. The trio boarded the train at Massachusetts avenue depot and found the oars well filled. In the one they entered two spruce young men occupied double seats facing eaob other, bnt made no txove toward accommodat ing the ladies. Their esoort said he would go into another oar and try to find seats. He was successful, and returned for his company. They, in the mean time, had acoepted seats beside the two young men mentioned, and when the brakeman walked np to them pretended not to notioc him. He coolly walked to the front of the oar and jumped off. When the conductor passed along taking tickets the girls said, 'Mr. has our passes.' 'That may be,' responded the fare collector, 'but that won't help you much on this train. He left the cars before we got out of the oily,' The young men paid the girls' fares to Oas tleton aud probably back home, but tl at is not known. It is safe to say that the brakeman lost no time in changing his boarding house. Interlopers. Hjw many quarrels wonld be made up were it not for interlopers ? It some times happens that men who have cut eaoh pther on some foolish, pretext for months or years, find themselves stand ing elope to each other in society, and are on the point of swallowing their pride and shaking hands, when an idle fellow begins a conversation with ono of them, and the opportunity is gone, per haps never to return. Again, how many marriages are prevented by interlopers? An interrupted proposal is not always continued. An innocent person enter ing a room in order to write a note may , spoil all by appearing at the critical mo ment; and even a servant with a coal box has been known to put to flight a nervous suitor. Indeed, servants are much given to interloping. If a wife is to be consulted, a child soolded, or an awkward question broached, an over zealous domestic is sure to become in terested in the condition of the drawing room fire, or oommenoe preparations for afternoon tea, Bnt on what trifles im portant matters depend. We remember a boy losing a fine estate by jumping over a flower-bed of a relative. Initials on Fruit. Did you ever see a name printed on a growing apple, pear or peaoh? No? Well, if you wish to have that pleasure, this is the way to obtain it: While the fruit yet hangs green npon the tree, make up your mind which is the very biggest and most promising specimen of all. Next, out out from thin tough pa per the initials of the name of your lit tle brother or sister or chief orony, with round spooks for dots after the letters, and the letters themselves plain and thick. Then paste these letters and dots on that side of the apple whioh is most turned to the sun, taking onro not to loosen the fruit's hold upon the stem. As soon as the apple is ripe, take off the paper outtings, whioh, having shut out the reddening rays of the sun, have kept the fruit green just beneath them, so that the name or initials now show plainly. After that, bring the owner of the initials to play near the tree, and say presently, 'Why, what are those queer marks on that apple up thore?' You will find this quite a pleasant way to surprise the very little ones, and, of course, yon oan print a short pet nam as easily as initials. A Sharpsbnrg, Md. , farmer shot a fox and in its don found the heads of 180 ebiekens and twenty turkeys, whioh Reynard had succeeded in capturing from the farms round about. The Galveston News estimates the population of Texas at about 3,000,000, and thinks that the next oensns will give the State fifteen Congressmen. FACTS AND FANCIES. A sand-storm is a rain of terra.

When a train is on a fly, that fly's mission in this world is ended, and tho train shouldn't be annoyed. Rather enoourage it to get on more flies. Dr. G. M. Beard, iu one of his papers in the Journal of Inebriety, oomes to the conclusion that sea air has a pecu liarly strong influence in exoiting the desire for alcoholic stimulants. We have sometimes thought the same thing when we have observed returning fishing par ties. A good lady.- who on the death of her husband married his brother, has a por trait of the former hanging in her dining-room. O.ie day a visitor, remark ing on the painting, asked: 'Is that a member of yonr family?' 'Oh, that's my poor brother in-law,' was the ingen uous reply. 'Are you fond of Hogg's Toles?' said a lady to a shepherd. 'Yes, I likes 'em roasted wi' salt on 'em,' was the response. 'No but I mean have you read Hogg's Tales!' 'No a,' said the bumpkin, 'our hogs are all white or blaok. I don't think there is a red ono among 'em.' The small boy jumps from the spring board, forms a line of beauty in the air, dives into the water like a loaded stick and comes to the surface smiling; but the man who tries the same feat gets his head stuck in the muddy bottom and enjoys naught but the serene quiet of his own funeral, A London correspondent says the Prince of Wales is 'a living proof that no amount of tobacco can enfeeble either mind or body. ' Ah, yes, but the prince buys his tobacco. It is only begged to bacco that shatters the mind, weakens the,oonstUution, and sends young men to an early grave. The falls of St. John, flowing into the bay of Fundy, present the singular phe nomenon of flowing both ways. Owing to the tide rising some sixty feet, it sets back up the river and boils over the rooks in a lively manner, but when the tide is out tho river reasserts itself and the fall of water is very graceful. Mr. AHgust Risohe, one of the pio neers of Leadville, and the discoverer of the Little Pittsburg mine, has recently been married at Ohioago. A year and a half ago he was a poor shoemaker, and is now classed among the millionaires. He is now the partner of Governor Ta bor, and the owner of fourteen or fifteen mines, including some of the best in Leadville. Tho bride was Miss Minnie Junghnhn, who has supported herself by sewing furs. The wife of a lawyer who lives in Montolair, N. J., and is said to be gift ed with the power of second sight, tried it on a young lawyer who was paying attentions to the maidens of the village. Complying with bis request that she should tell bis fortune, she said: 'You are a mairied man ; I see before me s young woman with light brown hair, lifting pleading hands for you to return. She is praying for you to fulfill your duty as a lawfully wed ded husband, and is waiting anxiously to bear from yon. Go baok to her.' The young lawyer vanished from Montolair, r'ahlon for the Ladles. Plaitings of laee soften the gsy ban danna costumes. Bonnet trimming for winter will be very rich in oolor and texture.

For plaitings to border skirts, clusters will be greatly used. When contrast ing materials form the tiimming, clus ters of plaits of tho gay trimming will alternate with othora of the plain mate rial chosen for the dress. Harper's Bazar sajs that the coat basque and plaited rouud skirt will be one of the stylish designs for woolen dresses. The basque is short and tveu all uround, or else it curves shorter on the hips.
