Lilt Cake, Two cups sugar, one rupof milk, one cup of coru starch, two cups of flour, the wbiteB of five eggs beaten to a cream, two teaspoon! ulu of l'skiug powder. Bent starch and milk togother. Corn and Tomatoes. If corn is boil ed on the cob, and then cut oiT and canned with tomatoes, in the usual man ner of canning tomatoec, it will keep well and be an excellent dish. Have twice as much tomatoea as corn. Tapioca Podding. Hall cup of tapi oca soaked in one quart of milk two hours before baking; little salt, Sugar nud extract lemon to suit the taste, and raisins; bake slowly till the custard is done, yon have a nico dish. Pioelhj Corn. Boil the oorn on the cob; when cool out it from the cob; place on the bottom of a jar a layer of m It ami a layer of oorn until the jar is full; cover with a cloth, board and weight; when wanted for use soak in water until fresh; then cook and it is like fresh com. Chocolate Caiiamels. One pint of sugar (seven cents), dissolved in aa little water as possible; one-half cup of butter (six cents); one tablespoonful of vine gar, one cup of chocolate (nino cents). Boil until quite thick, put into buttered tins and cut into squares when partly ' nooled. Cost twenty -two cents for one pound. Bkkp-Tea. Take one pound of the bost beef; out it into thin slices and scrape the meat tine; put it along with two-thirds of a salt-spoonful of salt into one pint of cold wator contained in an earthen bowl, and let the mixture stand two or three hours, stirring it frequent ly; place it in tho same vessel covered on the back part of the range, and let it come very gradually to a blood heat and no more, for any higher temperature would injure the nutriment; then strain it through a fine sieve or muslin bag, aad it is ready for nee. The making of beef-tea is not a cooking process. Dahlias. Do not permit dahlias to become dry at the roots. Should it be liecessary, give a good soaking of water once or twice every week, as much as .will penetrate tho soil deeper than the roots go, and it will be of great benefit to add a little liquid manure every nlternato watering, dahlias being gross feeders; In neat-kept flower gardens they ere usunliy tied up to stakes, but we find they produce more and finer flow ers when trained without stakes, so as to oover the surf aoe of the ground, whore by the roots are shndod. and the leaves are not so liable to be attacked by that plague of jjttnleufl the red spider. The question with many is, shall we rititio or purchase celery plants? Many small gardeners prefer purchasing to raising them, but the moat advisable plan is to raise them, as to start properly is half the battle. The seed should be sown in shallow boxos iu a warm, sonny window or hot-bed, and wher the plants are two or three inches high transplant iu a oold frame, where they enn be slightly shaded and watered. Celery plauts rot transplanted, or to speak technically prlokod off, are vastly in- fenor. When performing the latter operation pinch away the tip ot the tap root, and trim back tho leaves. Use the Boston Murket variety; it is hard to excel. Itorronlns Anionu 1'iiriiirr. To lend unto tie needy and give unto him (bat asketh is both chfiritablo and neighborly, and, when tho pructioo is properly conducted, a great oonveuienoe all round, but When it is all on one side it beoomes another thing entirely. A farmer may supply himself with an out lit of such tools and implements as arc necessary to carry on his farm and gar den, bnt to keep them in his possession and in good order is not so easy. One comes to borrow a hoe, rake, or spade, for use in his garden; another wants to borrow a saddle to ride a few miles, another a log chain, swiugletreo, mat tock, etc, until half the thiugs on the place nre lent out, and when wanted for use must either be seut for (much tho most probable) or the owner do without until it ni tho oonenicnce of the bor rower to return them. Bnt tho evil does not stop here. Not unfrequently the borrowed nrtiole comes home broken, and, if of iron or steel, always rusty or lull, even if, after having kept it so long, tbe borrower does not actually claim it as his own. That neighbors can aooommodate oaoh other, and with rontual advau tage, there is no doubt, provided the practice is properly con ductedthere then being, as old Grim sbaw woVld say, 'reciprocity in the busi ness;' bm with the advantage all on one side it is a sort of reciprocity not so agreeable ou the other. The farmer should ilrst provide himself with tbe ueoessary tools to carry on his farm, and if by ncrident be is oompslled to borrow he should at least take good care of and return anything that is lent bJm the moment he is done with it. Brain Fnrmlaa. Some people imagine that farming re quires but little outlay of brain-power to make it successful. Bnt as some one has truthfully said, 'Brains make the beat fertiliser a farmer can use.' Take two men, one of them with half tho physical strength of the other, the weaker man of the two will accomplish more than the other if be exceeds the latter in braiu -power. We have known large, stout, healthy men, who were hard workers, nud yet always on a 'stem chase' with their work: thev were alwaysjin hot water, always poor, from the simple fact that their bodies were better than their brains. Such a man, if he is doing as simple work as picking up stones on a side hill, will get his stone boat on the upper side of a large bowlder, and then, by stress of mind and muscle, roll it on to the drag, while the weaker, but wiser man, would place the boat on tbe lower Bide of the stone, unhitch his team, place the obain about it, and in a twinkling have it loaded, and save his own strength for some more important occasion. And so it goes to tbe end of the ohapter, with the man who does not 'think;' and this law applies to indoor as well as to outdoor work. If men and women would take time to plan their work, they would secure muoh better results than to hnrry and scurry about without thought or system. Wo honestly believe if every farmer would have a study and library, like any professional man, with a few good agricultural papers, and spend an hour or two each day in reading and planning his work, he would secure better results than to spend twice that amount of active labor on his farm. This is the time aud the hour for labor saving inventions in every direction, and no farmer oan entirely ignore this in creased knowledge, and compete with those who keep their eyes and ears open. Farm Notaa. Charcoal, pulverized and mixed with water, is now highly recommended as an agent for relieving cattle suffering from any derangement of the stomach, such as bloat or hoven, etc This should be remembered. There is no doubt of its efficacy, if abundance of concurrent testimoiy can be relied upon. To make a good harness polish, take of mutton suet two ounces; beeswax, six ounces; lampblack, one onnce; yellow or green soap, two ounces; water, one-half pint : dissolve the soap in the water, add the other solid ingrodicnts, mix well and add turpentine. Lay on with sponge and polish with a brush. me result 01 jate experiments in Englaud show that fifteen and a-quarter quarts 01 me mm ot anortiiorns is re quired for a pound of butter. The same amount was produced from ten and a half quarts of Ayrshire milk, nine and a-half quarts, of Galloway milk and eight and a-half quarts of Kerry milk, being produced, as nearly as possible, under the same conditions. A Nation of Speech Makers. Speech-making is at once a national talent and a national vies among as, says an exohonge. Europeans wonder at it, and are often amused and enter tainod by it. Thoy are unable to ex ploiu why a man who has sat reticent and apparently dull by their side for an hour or more, should, on being named for a speeoh, flash out into something very like oratory. Foreigners who come among us Biy that wo aro a nation of speech-makers, and that speeoh-mak ing is not confined, as in other countries, to any class or classes. All that seem necessary to insure a speech from an American is to oall on him to speak He may bo uneduoated, inexperienoed, and, under ordinary ciroumBtances, dif fident, obtuse, and wanting in fluency. But invite him to speak anywhere at any time, and his nationality may be ques tioned if he do not give evidence of very fertile utterance. Iu other countries, speech-makers aro men who have been trained to the business, who have made it a special and continuous study; they are, in a word, speech-makers by pro fession, while bore men are speech- makers by praotioe. To be born in the republic presupposes the capacity to 'orate,' utid the capacity given, all places furnish opportunities. This volubility oomes in part from the richness and variety of our mother tongue, which en ables any one who has mastered it to talk hour after hour without conveying any clear idea. Wo have coustont ex amples of this in our legislative halls, in the pulpit and at public dinners. Wonderful Shooting. The best soore on record was made at the Columbia rifle range, West End, N. J. The attraction was the Sharps long range shoot, and it opened with eleven competitors. The conditions were 500 yards, any rifle, 110 shots. On the first round Mr. A. O, Holoombe aud Dr. 8. T. G. Dudley tied on a score of fifty out of a possible fifty. Mr. Hol oombe and Dr. Dudley went to the tar gets to shoot off tho tie, both meu again making ten oonseoutive bull's-eyes. A third time these remarkable marksmen went to the targets, and again both men made tho wonderful run of fifty out of a possible fifty. Both men cleaned their Remingtons, and for a fourth time be gan to shoot off the tie. Dudley started off with a bull's-eye, Holcambe follow ing with the same, and on the second shot Dr. Dudley scored a center and Holoombe mode a bull's eye. Both men made four more bull's-eyes, and then Dudley again made a center. The total score now stood; noloombe, 180 out of n possible 180, and Dr. Dudley, 178 out of a possible 180. Holoombe, on tho thirty-seventh shot, his seventh of the final tie, again soored a bull's-eye. On his eighth he got a center, closing his soore with two bull's eyes, making in the maloh 199 o .t of a possible 200, His run of thirty-seven nonseoutivo bnll's-eyr s has never been equaled, and it stands tho best soore on record. The Fahroos. Fan -shaped brooches, elaborately enameled with flowers, are in style. Habit basques are unbecoming to fat women; but they will be the first to adopt them. Strings of Japanese bine soft twilled silk have gay gold, red and blue figured cashmere ribbon down the center, aud point d'eaprit frills on the ends. For black costnmes tbe fancy will be that suggested last season of having brocaded velvet for tho basque, aud plain silk or satin for the two skirts. The wedding dross has a style of its own usually; but for the next season tbe panier draperies and certain effects will be used very much as they are for other full-dress toilettes. The felt poke bonnet will have change able satin trimming, with narrower cashmere ribbon sewed down the mid dle of the wide strings, and feathers that show cashmere colors in combination. A new style of spoon, very small and slender, is called 'Old Newport,' and is after Queen Anne's design. The spoons are a representation of some ancient spoons found at Newport, and are relics of the old days of 'Marrie England.' Some of the cloths tor overdresses and for wraps have a melange of colors and lines as artistic and as irregular as those of Turkish carpets. Some of the most expensive of these goods have a groat deal of silk iu them, and this is nearly all brought to the surfs v. The shot or changeable stuffs cime in repped goods, in satines, in twilled serges and jn cloth. Some are all w:ul, soft and flexible, whilo others have a mixture of silk, which is shown in tiny specks or stitches; or, oftener still, iu raised figures of Eastern designs. The high oorsage and long coatsleevo is the severe style that is preferred for church weddings; but many basques will have surplice drapery of lnce following the outline of an open heart-shaped cor sage, and the transparent lace sleevos reaching to tho elbow will also be re tained. Bonnet ribbons oome in changeable effects in thick twills like silk serge. They are two and a half inches wide, and will be used not merely for strings, but for trimming the whole bonnet. There aro also twillod serges by the piece to be out bias; these show the shot colors to good effect. For dress bonnets aro large shapes, with the wide brim curved in three plaoes on the right side, and plain on the left. These are very handsome when made of satin antique in cream-color, twilled silk of the same shade for ecarf and shirred facing, and ostrich plumes also of cream -color held by a beetle of natural hues. Byzantine point washes well, and is much used for trimming; it imitates the rioh designs of antique laoes. Russian laces, iu braid-liko patterns, and clnny lace, and point de Raguse, are all fash ionable on children's dresses. Black Breton is principally used for millinery purposes; it is almost too frail and in effective for dresses. Htrper's Batar announces that hand some blaok cashmero costumes are im ported for general wear. It is now pre ferred that the skirt for such suits should be of cashmere instead of silk, and in many French suits the skirt is made of silk of light quality, but is covered in all its visible parts with cashmere. Thus a black silk round skirt will have the whole front aud Bide gores covered with a single breadth of veiy wide cashmere, because tho short front of the polonaise displays all the skirt front; but the back of the skirt has the silk covered with oashmero only about a fourth of a yard above the border flounce, as the long back of the polonaise conceals it. To make mou skirts the cashmere breadth is widely shirred down tbe middle fold, and this shirring is sewed down the mid dle of the front breadth of the skirt ; it has only this single row of shirring, und is shaped to slope with the second side seam, where it is gathered in the whole length of the seam. The back breadths are then partly covered at the bottom, and the whole is finished with a border flounce; or, what is still more fashion able, a oluster of three-sided plnitings, each Mine inches deep when finished, and made to lap on the edges. The up per and lower of theso plaitings should bo of cashmere, and tho middle one of silk. The panier polonaise is then elabo rately trimmed with wide blaok embroi dery in open-worked designs, or with the new fringe, or else with the gay India cashmere stuffj, arranged to form a fichu, collar, belt and cuffs. A New Musical Instrument. The automatic organ, as it is called, involves the necessity on the pait of the player of using the feet upon tbe trea dles, but the manipulation of tho keys by the fingers is dispensed with by the peouliar process of having the. musio play itself. Iu plaoe of ordinary notes printed upon a few pages the roll of mu sio is yards in length and the notes aro perforations varying in size and place aocording to tho time and pitch. By an arrangement of wheels this roll is un wound and drawn over the openings above the reeds by the snmo motion of the pedals whioh forces the air through the latter; and as the perforations pass over the reeds the musical sounds aro allowed to esoape in harmony, just as they do when the keyB are pressed in an ordinary organ. When tho tnne is play ed, au ingenious oontrivance permits the machinery to be reversed and the sheet of musio to be removod in readi ness for another performano9. It oan then be readily removed and another put in its place. Aocording to tbe scope of tho instrument the stylo of the musio performed may be varied from a 'Stabat Mater' to airs from 'Pinafore' Tho oost of the rolls is only slightly in ad vance of ordinary sheet musio; while a large-sized instrument can be had for about tho same as the cheapest ordinary parlor orgtn. Helping the ( hlrkr n Market. John E. Hagcrty, ot W, Broadway, says a St. Louis paper, yesterday sold seventy-two dozen chickens, nnder cir cumstances that were out of the usual routine of trade. One of the e64 chick ens sold and immediately killed was, for a few minutes, valued at $500. It occu pied, as it were, the position of a epital prize in a lottery. The circumstances were like this: Mr. Hawthorne, a so journer in St. Louis, whose homo is in Syracuse, N. Y., was strolling up Broad way, observing with interest the huge proportions of tho poultry and game business of tho city. A nnmber of coops of very fine chickens cumbered the sidewalk iu front of Hagcrty's plaoe. Mr. Hawthorne was and is the owner of a very fine diamond cluster pin of seven stones, and valued at 8500. While leaning over a coop of chickens, playfully stirring them up with his cane, one of the fowls suddenly shot his head through an aperture in the top of tho coop, and, with a rapid, firm movement and grip, tore the glittering diadem from the snowy expanse of Mr, Haw thorne's shirt front. The pin actually presented a front with the circumference of a dime As a grain of com it disap peared down tho gullet of tho voraoious hen. Mr. Hawthoruo at once became wildly excited. He ran into tho store and loudly proclaimed his loss, and then danced ont on to the sidewalk and there bewailed his bad luck. There were a number of hucksters buying chickens a the time. They were pulling the coops about, and somehow, between the un fortunate mau's oxcitomeut and tbe handling of tho coops by tbe hucksters, he lost all knowledge of the identity of tho particular coop iu which the prize chicken was strutting. Hawthorne was in despair, when Mr. John Hagerty came to the scene, John explaiuod that there were seventy -two dozen chickens in the ooops. In order to surely recover the pin they must all be killed. Hager ty sells more dressed chickens every day to the hotels than that, and all ho asked Hawthoruo to do was to pay the price of twenty-five cents per dozen, for the aotual labor of killing and dressing the birds. To this the owner of the missing jewels oonsented. The poultry were taken back to the killing and cleaning oom, where seven womon are constant ly employed dressing fowl for the mar ket, and the wcrk of slaughter began. Mr. Hawthorne and Mr. Hagerty stood by, carefully watching the examination of tse craw of each bird. The women were not aware that they were hunting for a premium bird, and the one who discovered the cluster in the craw of a bird, when there were but six more left to clean, was thoroughly surprisei'. The pin was found uninjured, and, after a good washing, resumed its position on tho owner's shirt front. He very hand somely gave the woman who found the diamonds a 810 note, paid Mr. Hagerty $18 for killing the chickens, and will not care to examine caged poultry too close ly in the future. Can't Afford to Marry. Girls, do you hear this? Many good men aro crying, 'Can't afferd to morryP Why? 'Expense of supporting a wife.' Why support a wife? Might not wives be made self-supporting, or partly so? Isn't there something wrong in this sys tem which makes matrimony dependent on a man's ability to pay all the wife's expenses? I it rot tilling tbo land with old maids? Has it not done bo for the last half century? Who marry most? What raoe? The people who care noth ing for keeping up style. The foreign born, whose women turn to and tend the shop. The cultivated American is not the mat iv ing man. He likes the goods on exhibition, but they're too costly for every day wear. Hence, oft they remain on the counter until shop worn. This is a crying evil. Oar best men are not marrying. Because bo many of our girls are saying, 'You must take me for better, for worse, to feed me, to clothe me, to house me, to warm me, to keep mo clad ki fashion, to give me a house proportionate to my style, to keep me in pin money ; and I will con descend to live with you, und take your money and do nothing to earn more, and to lament, if thiugs go wrong, that I didn't marry better, and you must re gard it as a great favor ou my part. The man wants you pretty badly, but it's too heavy n contract. Things must be re arranged so thut you oan carry more of your end of the log. In Uefense of Dag-page Smashers. The Burlington llawkcye changes the usual condemnation of baggagemeu, and puts forth this plea for them: The chief object in making 'sample trunks' so large is to sneak tho paymeut of extra weights. It makes no difference how many a poor baggageman breaks his back over t hem, as long as the wholesale dealer saves a dollar or two on traveling bills, or tho young lady oan pack flue clothing for a wholo reason into one cottage, put a roofless bay-window on e'och end, and call the whole thing a trunk. The baggageman's back is worth more than the trunk to him. You can not makfl him believe that it is his duty to handle in a great hurry, aud in a most gingerly manner, gigantic pieces of bag gage almost as largo as an elephant's form. He knows that he cannot do it. He must sling it the bost way that he oan. The train must go, and those trunks roust be taken care of. My lady's trunk might be made in two, ond her property thus more oasily han dled. The big sample trunks are an in excusable anisanoe. They might just as well bo made smaller. Then tbe bag gage could be much more easily han dled aud less damage done than with the larger boxes. The lady's fino clothing might bo as well packed in two small trunks as in one big one, and tho bag gagomaster then would have no reason to destroy it, or to destroy himself in trying to haudle it. The big trunk is an insult, and the baggageman has a right to rosent it. FACTS AND FANCIES. Does the maternal codfish call its youug,with a codfish bawi ?

Oue evening the Maxim eleotrio ligbt was put in opera t' ; m on tbe tower of tbe Grand Union hotel, Saratoga Springs, N. Y., with a view to teet the extent of its illuminating powers. An open para bolic reflector was used no lenses and care was taken by Mr. Maim to set tbo points of tho carbons a little at one aide of each other, and to adjust them to tbe exact foctn of the reflector. When this was fairly accomplished tbe light was turned toward a sjnit in Ballston Spa, sevou and a half miles distant, where, by previous arrangement, a group of several huudred persons were assembled to witness the experiment. So powerful was the light, so accurate tho focming aud alignmeut, that the designated plaoe in Ballston was instantly illuminated, so thut ordinary print could be read, the time seen on watches, etc. The night was clear, still aud dark. The experiment was made at nine and a-half o'clock p. m. This is believed to be the greyest tiistance at which illumination of equal degree has been accomplished. Not to be Proud of their English.
