' Crai fob Catarrjl According to Hamilton, the severest catarrhal cold can be removed in about ten hours "by a mixture of carbolic acid, ten dropp ; tincture of iodine and chloroform, each seven and one-half drops. A few drops of the mixture should be heated over a spirit lamp, in a test tube, the mouth of vhich should be applied to the nos trils as soon as volatilization is effected. The operation should be effected in about two minutes, when, after the pa tient sneezes a number of times, the troublesome symptoms rapidly disap pear. Frxrva Handsaws. In filing hand saws that are intended to cut enly one way, the majority of mechanics file to ward the handle, which leaves the teeth with more bevel on the back than on the front, which is caused by the taper of the file. A few persons file their saws toward the point, which gives more bev el to tl e front or cutting side of the teeth. Some thick that the back side of tlte teeth should be filed nearly square across, and that the saw will cut equally we'l and remain Bharp much longer. The front Bide of the teeth should be beveled to suit the timber; soft wood requires more bevel than hard food. UsKFTii Newspapers. Newspapers aie beginning to be appreciated. It is found that they are better than cedar bests for keeping woolen clothing in, iiv?r summer ; the moths don't like to .'nrfele the newspapers; they know bet ter. Whip the coats, shawls, etc., thoroughly particularly about the seams ; then fold them snngly in a large printed Bheet, and paste the pa per tight gum-arabio mucilage is best. Then fasten it all tightly in : linen or cotton sheet. 1 his, we are assured by those who have had years of experience with all kinds of preventives, is the most effectual protection of woolen clothing from the ravages of moths. Dressed Ban anas. They can be sim ply peeled and sliced, and dressed with sngar dissolved in water to the taste, letting them stand a few honrs to impart their flavor to the dressing. It is an improvement to add a little lemon juice, using about half a lemon to one dozen bananas. Bnt a far better dressing con sists of the juice of oranges sweetened and poured over the sliced bauanas. Let it stand three or four honrs before using, and stir before dishing, but not enough to break the slices. This is a happy combination of flavors. As the season advances and oranges become scarce, substitute the juice of pine-apple. These are somewhat expensive dishes, but they are delicate and deli cious. Unthinkable Mechanics. By means of a tiny diamond point at the end of a machine, composed of exquisitely graduating systems of lessening wheels, a Mr. William Webb, of London, is able to write upon glass the whole of the Lord's prayer within the space of a two hundred and ninety-fourth of an inch in length and one four hundred and fortieth part of an inch in breadth the measurement of the dot of an ' i " in print. He could write the whole 3,56f,,480 letters of the Old and New Testament eight times over in the space of one square inch of glass ; and when this - wonderful microscopical writing is enlarged by photography, every letter and point are perfect, and can be read. Amazing as this is, how ever, a wealthy banker of London, named refers, invented a machine in 1855 that could write three times as finely as Mr. Webb's. The Manner of Shoeing IIorses. Although this subject has engaged the attention of mankind from the earliest nges, in consequence of its importance, it is wonderful how little we have jet real ized in the way of securing a covering for the horse's hoof which shall answer the pnrposes required. Many scores of different shoes have been designed by persons ready to vouch for their excel lence, bnt they have generally been false in theory. Of the many methods of horse-shoeing, that known as the Goodenou;h system alone seems to be founded upon correct principles. The frog must be preserved, or eventnally the foot will be ruined. The light of reason is beginning, in this respect, to slowly dawn upon the rising generation of blacksmiths. Let us hope, for the horse's sake, that that instrument of torture, the old bar shoe, may soon be brought to mind only with memories of the inquisition. Planetary Flirtations. The fash inable events in celestial society for the ensuing months of the present year will be as follows : At sunset on the 27th of June the silvery planet Mercury, seldom distinguishable on account of its close proximity to the sun, will be brightly visible in the west. At five minutes of nine o'clock on the morn ing of July 5th Mars and the sun will be in conjunction. On the 12th of Au gust, three minntes past seven in the evening, Jupiter and Venus will ap proach within one degree of each other presenting a rare and beautiful spec tacle. An annular eclipse of the sun, visible in Asia, and partly in Africa and northern Europe, will occur on the 10th of October. The magnificent Venus will be at her nearest to our earth on the night of November 10th. One month thence, on the 10th of December, will occur the great centenuial transit of the beautiful planets across the disk of the sun, by elaborate observation of which the astronomers of the world hope to establish the exact distance of our world from the sun. On the mornings of the 14th and 15th of the same month, too. Mars and Venus will come within three minutes of each other, so as to seem in actual contact. LrrERAiir Curiosity. There is a real literary curiosity in New York, just now, the autograph of Charles Dickens, as contained iu the manuscript of " Our Mutual Friend." It is a fat volume, with the hundreds of sheets packed with the maatei's cramped hand and in some places almost illegible copy, neatly bound up and prefaced by tLe skeleton pages 'where Dickens has sketched out his plans. He evidently followed the curiom plan of question ing and answering himself on paper, as at the head of one of these skeletons we find : " Bell three chapters? Yes." Farther down lie writes down the name of another character, and queries wheth er he shall dispose of it iu a certain manner theu subjoins a curt " No," as if disapproving his own original plan. This manuscript is the propertv of George W. Childs, of Philadelphia, who purchased it from a critic in Loudon (to whom it was given by Dick ens) for SI, 2 40 in gold. It is said that the critic sold it to spite Dickens, or his memory, I don know which, because of some disagreement which they had subsequent to the gift. Some of the paos of this manuscript must have been terrible upon the eves of the printers, for they are seor d through and through with laborious corrections. Soa as JManuro. George Geddes, in the Country Gen theman, writes : As a manure, the value of an old sod will be somewhat understood when we consider the result obtained by Pn f. Kedzie, of the Mich igan Agricultural College at Lansing. He took a square foot of June grass turf and washed away all the soil in running water, and then weighed the roots and surface grass, to determine the amount of green manural matter usually containid in a heavy green sward," and found it to be five pounds to the square foot, or at the rate of more than one hundred tons to the acre. This wa. from a very heavy mat of June grass, and the professor says, in a let ter to me, in regard to this matter, "This is doubtless in excess of ordi nary June grass ; " bnt he says he "thicks that few farmers estimate cor rectly the amount of vegetable matter they "add to their soil by plowing under h: a vy greensward." It is a solemn thing a very solenrn thine-, to get raiirnVJ to feel that beuoe'rorth through life the mild-eyed cir'.at vonr right is to be the only fe male in" the w i.le world duly licensed to throw flat-irons &t your head. . MOTHER HUBBARD ASD EES DOG. The fd and venerable maternal representative of a family which descended from an anoss tral progenitor known in his time by the patronymic appellation of Hubbard (perhaps from bis having been one of the early poets or barda of the Hub), Wended her way to the small apartment ordinarily devoted to the storage of crockery and snch portions of the family provisions as were left unused at the prandial meal, To obtain, for the gratification of her favorite bnt emaciated specimen of the genus cant a fragment of an osseons nature once compos ing an integral portion of the skeleton of an animal (whether bovine, porcine or other wise the narrator w as not able to determine satisfactorily) from which she had reason to beiieve her petted quadruped would obtain aliment. When by continuous progressive motion she bad arrived at the end of her brief Journey, and in fact had reached the objoctive point and the gcal of her desire. Her fond anticipations were not realized, and her calculation came to naught ; for the family receptacle before alluded to proved to be entirely denuded of everything in the way of that sustenance which tends to prolong life when received within and assimilated by the animal organism ; Consequently this indigent and long-rnffering member of the higher class of vertebrates called mammals, but familiarly known as the oor dog," failed on this occasion to obtain anything to appease his nnsated and vora cious appetite, which there is reason to be lieve bad previously been whetted bv the anticipatiou of the favorable result of tne visit of his friend and protector to the uaual f-torehouee of his supplies. GOLD AND SILVEE. Sixteen Hundred Million Dog Out on tbe Pacific Coast. Han Francisco Chronicle, June 8. A quarter of a century has elapsed since the magic cry of gold ! gold ! from the Pacifio coast excited the na tions, and still the metallic tide con tinues to pour forth in a flood which pathers strength and force as it rolls on. True, the yield from particular locali ties seems at times to become exhausted, but new fields are continually being discovered, newer and mightier placers of gold, newer and broader seams of silver, while new modes of working again make the old places fruitful. The enormous extent of those that still lie undeveloped can hardly be coi'Ceived by even the most extravagant imagina tion. The volume of gold and silver already poured into the coffers of the world taken from beneath the alluvial soil of this coast and torn from the bowels of its mountains is hardly any better appreciated. Abroad there ex ists a kind of vague idea that one has but to come to California and stay a dozen years to go forth a millionaire; but as the total yield since the first miner struck the first pick in the soil of the valley of the Sacramento, as to the annual yield, whether it is increasing or decreasing ; as to what becomes of it when mined, where it goes to and the part that it afterward plays in gov ernment and commerce, comparatively few are aware. Therefore it is that the Chronicle proposes in a short article to give a summary of all that is interes' ing or important on these points to its readers. And notwithstanding the ex panded ideas of California wealth that exist abroad and at home, it will sur prise not a few to learn that one third of all the gold and silver coined and un coined in circulation in the world, and a half of that used in America, Europe and Australia, has been the product of the Pacific coast from 1818 to 1874. The precious metal product of the coast nearly equaled a value of gl,600, 000,000, the exact figures being Sl,583, 644,934, of which $1,347,509,503 was gold and $236,135,431 silver. But for the immense product poured into the coffers of commerce, it is difficult to imagine how the latter could have been carried on, enormous as its increase has been, without a general and correspond ing depreciation in prices, or a vast ex pansion of the system of credits and pa per money. To the United States, in particular, it has supplied nearly $900, 000,000 of all the precious met Jls used in coinage and the arts since the foun dation of the government. The total amount coined up to the end of 1873 was nearly $800,000,000, of which $750, 000,000 has been from California gold and silver. What would have been done without this, and how commerce could have been carried on with foreign nat ions, are questions that are puzzling. It seems, indeed, that the general pio gress of not only the Pacific coast, but of the whole nation, would have been very sensibly retarded. England, since 1848, has loaned eight thousand million dollars to the nations, and this she has been enabled to do by means of the gold and 6ilver product of America and Australia mainly the former. At least five thousand millions of this sum, bringing a yearly interest of two hun dred and fifty millions of dollars has been derived from the Pacific coast. Nearly all that we have sent east, and $190,000,000 more, has gone thither and has been loaned some half a dozen times. England lends gold and silver obtained from the United States, in ex chauge for goods, to France. Franco pays it back again for merchandise. Then it is borrowed by Germany, and by that nation paid back for manufac tures, whf n it is again loaned to Eussia, and so on. By this system one dollar in coin is sometimes made to perform the work of a dozen, and hence it is that the capitalists of England grow rich on the handling of the product of our lodes anil placers. Of the whole yield California has produced three-fourths, or $1,094,919,- 098, nearly all gold, with a small sprinkling of silver. It is thought that there exist mammoth silver lodes in va rious parts of the state, but they all pale their ineffectual fires before the wondrous oka oi ."Nevada. This state comes next, having produced since 1860 upward of $221,402,412 in crold and silver, three-fourths having come out of the wonderful mines of the Comstock. The greater portion of this has been silver, although in many mines the gold forms at least one-third of the precious metals yielded in the assay. Utah, though iong known as a country rich in the precious metals, has only lately been a producer of them. The territo ry has produced $18,527,537, principally silver, and is increasing in production st a great rate. In fact, its resources in this way are simply inexhaastible. Montana first became known in 1862, ann for two or three years its placers gave great promise, but they have lately ceased to yield much, and quartz min ing is not being pushed with sufficient vigor to make amends for the failure of the placers. It has produced altogether up to the present time $119,308,147. The same may be said of Idaho, which has produced $57,249,197. . Colorado, as a mining field, is just about being developed, and will make for itself, by and by, as great a name as Nevada or California. It has produced about $30, 000,000. Oregon and Washington have a history very similar to that of Idaho. They hava produced $25,501,250. Brit ish Columbia has added about $9,000, 000 to the riches of the coast, and Ari zona a small sum ; but that territory is capable of being made to support a large mining population. Its being named at present s a mining territory is a seeming misnomer, as its yield is very small, but it has great and unde veloped capacities. For the last seven years the yield of the precious metals on this coast has been increasing steadily, last year having increased abont 14 per cent., being $80,287,436 against $70,239,614 in 1872. This was principally due to Nevac a, the increase of which last year, was un precedentedly great. But the yield of Idaho and Montana has been for some years decreasing, on account of their placers being worked out and their quartz lodes not being sufficiently de veloped. With the modes of working placers, hydraulic diggings and quartz mines, it is presumed that most of the readers of the Chronicle have more or less acquaintance. When the gold and silver belongs to any of the great mining companies it is usually made up in bars and forward ed by express. Most of these compa nies have particular banks, either here or in New York, to which they sell all they have. But there are many 6mall companies and many companies of white and Chinese miners who sell their dust to the storekeeper with whom they deal, or to small country banks and brokers, who make a bu incss of it, and who sell it to the big banks. Nearly all the banks have agents ior purcnasing in this way. The bank of California 1 claims to receive two-thirds of the bul lion coming to the market. A compara tively small proportion of dust and nuggets now received, as most of the country banks convert their receipts into birs. Gold was formerly eent along in its original state by nearly all these banks, but it is seldom done now, as there is an assay office in nearly all the mining towns, where it is melted into bars. The average silver bars weigh from 2,400 to 3,000 ounces, and tbe gold bars are worth from $50 to $5,000. A few months ago the Anglo-Californian bank received one of the latter value. The bars range in fineness from 500 to 900, the average being about 850. A great proportion of the fine bars come from Victoria, British Columbia. Sil ver comes in bars of all sizes. The bank of California has had one bar of 1,801 ounces, or 124 pounds, sent to it. The gold and silver from the bank are sent to the refinery to be refined. For merly a good deal of silver used to ac cumulate at the banks, but now it is shipped quicklv by the railroad. What remains over night in the banks is, be ing in the shape of bars, placed on trucks and run into the vault, till it is sent away the next day. The silver is shipped principally to China, Japan and England. It is interesting to detail how they are shipped. At the country banks it is received in all conceivable shapes in plain bars, packed in buckskin bags, in tin boxes, and even in old tin cans. Silver coin for export is always put in square, dovetailed boxes. Silver bullion comes in plain bars. When sent from the bank it is put into a large bag. from which it is taken when brought to the railroad cars and placed on the floor of the car. In this way it is brought to the city. Most of the gold and silver is coined here and shipped away by the firm of Wells, Fargo fe Co., which has agents at every principal point on the railroads, whose duty it is to receive and check it. On this car are a number of men armed with small arsenal shot guns and navy revolvers. They accom pany the treasure. When shipped east it is put up in little boxes of pine wood with screwed lids, each containing about $20,000. Wells, Fargo & Co. have about 600 offices on the coast, and employ 1,050 men. The offices extend from here to the Missouri river, and they have regular agents in Liverpool, Hamburg, Bremen, etc It takes fifteen men to run a treasure car through from here to Ogden, and there are from two to six and eight on all save some of the smaller lines, while on days when there is any considerable amount of treasure they have an armed guard. In sending to Mexico a treasure-room is engaged on the steamer, in which the treasure is packed in boxes or bags. They are put in a square safe, which will hold $250, 000. Silver is almost always shipped in bars. For the carriage of gold from Fort Shaw in Montana, near the bound ary of British Columbia, to this city the charge is 1 4 5 per cent.; for carry ing silver it is 3 J per cent, on the value. For shorter distances there is, of course, a reduced scale of charges. No r what becomes of all the gold and silver ? In the first place, $1,034,537,245 has been sent away from San Francisco through regular mercantile channels during the last quarter of a century.. Nearly all this went by sea, though the amount exported in that way has been growing smaller, being now only a small proportion of what it was a few years ago, before the overland railroad was completed. Of the balance, about $40, 000,000 worth exists in the shape of coin, jewelry, etc., on the Pacific coast ; $60,000,000 has gone east by express, post-office and drafts, while the balance has been shipped from Utah, Nevada, Montana, Idaho, Colorado, New Mexico, Arizona, Wyoming, Oregon, Washing ton and British Columbia on the rail road since its completion, or by other means of conveyance previously, and carried away by private hand. Of the whole amount, "more than $1,100,000,000 worth have reached England, chiefly by way of New York. Of that exported by sea, more than half has gone direct to New York, about $200,000,000 direct to England, nearly $120,000,000 to China and Japan, and the balance to various other countries. One noticeable change, occurring of late years, is in the character of our bullion product. Formerly it was all gold or nearly so. In 1859 we began to obtain silver, when the yield of the ar gentiferous lodes of Nevada aston ished the world more than did the placers of California, and ever since, year by year, the quantity of silver has been increasing, while that of gold has nearly all the time steadily decreased. Last year the yield of silver on the Pa cific coast slightly exceeded that of gold. We have furnished the world with gold ; we shall f urn sh it with sil ver. That the silver is needed may be well understood, wltan it is known that India alone requires ave hundred mil lion dollars worth of silver to supply her wants in this respect. As to the future prospects, the silver yield of Ne vada, Utah and Colorado is continually increasing, and the gold yield of the coast will increase as soon as the vast unworked and almost unknown re sources of this state are developed. P, in fact, may be considered that the re sources, auriferous and argentiferous, of this coast have as yet only been tested, and that the development has yet to come. Ibe liocky mountains, the backbone of the continent, the Sierra Nevada, and the connecting ranges, have, as yet, but been partially prospected and may be considered the inexhaustible storehouse of the pre cious metals. Crops for Premiums. Colonel S. D. Harris, in a recent communication to the Buckeye I armer, says : The common practice of farme-s who compete for premiums at the agri cultural fairs in the fall is to put off all concern in the matter until a few days before the fair is held, and then if they have any thing which is extra good in the way of a farm crop they will select a sample and take it to the fair. This is not the way they should do such things, as there is no practical credit duetto a man for an accidental good crop. The real objects of premiums is to stimulate people to work for them ; it is a very low motive when a man competes for a prize only that he may win the money which is offered ; he should strive, not so much for the mere object of taking the premium as to show what can be done in the way of raising crops by trying for it in earnest. And now is the time to begin ; think of this while you are plowing the land, while you are putting in the seed, while you are tending the crop, and at the time of harvest it will be no small gratification that yo i took good aim at success and hit the mark. It seems that every well directed ef fort of the farmer's arm in the days of seed time is an act of faith and prayer, and that the like, in time of harvest, is an act of praise and thanksgiving. Then, whether, you take a premium or not, yon have achieved success, which is better. Wasted Fertilizer. The Farmers' Home Journal says : On every old place in central Kentucky there are such things as old wood-piles, where chips have accumulated and de composed for fifty years ; then there are old piles of ashes, sometimes three or four feet deep, which have been accu mulating for the same length of time ; then there are old straw-piles and heaps of stable manure which have never been hauled out ; again there are deposits under the hen-roosts, some- I times two feet deep, which are equal to the best Peruvian guano, and when the! e are all hauled out, we will go to an in exhan tible supply of rich molds and alluvial deposits of decayed vegetable matter, which have been collecting for ages, in places on branches and creeks which run through most farms. We have still another supply yet in the muck mud, which, if dug out in tbe summer time, when the marshes and swampy places are dry and hard, it can be hauled cloe to, if not quite to where it is wanted, and the winter freezing will pulverize it and put it in fine con dition for a crop next season. A oTiileless Danbnry man saw a advertised "50." sent on the money, and received the jack of clubs. THE BANKRUPT LAW. Provisions of the New Bill Passed by Congress. The principal points of the new bankrupt bill, which only requires the president's signature to become a law, are as follows : Forty days are allowed to elapse before a merchant or trader who fails to pay his commercial paper is liable to be thrown into bankruptcy. The assent of one-fourth in number and one-third in value of the creditors is required to throw a debtor into bank ruptcy. This provision relates back to the 1st of last December. Proceedings may be discontinued whenever a debtor pays those secured debts which were the ground of throwing him into bank ruptcy, or henever, with the consent of the court, he and a majority of the creditors Bhall ask for a discontinuance of the proceedings. In order to set aside hypothecated pledges or liens on the bankrupt's estate, it must appear that the party dealing with the bank rupt knew that he intended to perpe trate a fraud on the bankrupt law, and that he intended to go into bankruptcy. When a loan is made to a bankrupt in good faith and security taken, with the intention of aiding him to pull through, it shall be considered as having actual value, and the security shall not be in validated by proceedings in bankruptcy. A voluntary bankrupt may have his dis charge if his estate pays 30 per cent, of his debts, or provided he obtains the assent of the same number of his cred itors as is necessary to throw him into bankruptcy. An involuntary bankrupt can get his discharge if his conduct is free from all fraud, and he is innocent of any violation or infringement of the bankrupt act. Assignees are pro hibited from dividing fees with other persons engaged in the case. Composi tion of creditors may be made with the debtor, providing a majority of the creditors join, were approved by the court, for the release and discharge of the debtor. The fees and expenses are reduced one-half until the judges of the supreme court shall establish a per manent reduction and simplify pro ceedings. All the acts of the persons connected with the execution of the law shall be made public in the shape of full and minute reports from the clerk, the assignee, the marshal and the regis ter. Original jurisdiction is conferred upon the territorial courts, with an appeal to the supreme court of the ter ritory. Whole Corn for Fattening. A Rhode Island correspondent of the Boston Journal says that the reason llhode Island turkeys are worth three cents per pound more in market than any ethers is because these turkeys are fattened, especially in the south part of that state, on hard Indian corn instead of meal, barley, oats or other kinds of food, and because they are picked with out being scalded in hot water, and their inwards removed immediately. There is almost as much difference in the bird prepared in this way and one that is fed otherwise and dipped into hot water (to save two minutes' labor in picking), and then left to swelter a week with its inwards undrawn, as is the case with most that are brought to the New York, Phi:ade!phia and other markets, as there is between a woodcock and a crow. So, too, if a hog be fed solely on hard corn and water, its meat will be as far superior to that fatted on meal or other soft food as real pure Orange county is to distillery or swill milk. Why are Cincinnati hams so celebrated ? Is their superiority owing to the method of curing them solely ? By no means, but more to the quality of the flesh, which is made entirely from the juices of sweet, hard wild nuts and nnground Indian corn. Take a tHrkey that has a free, wild range, where grasahoppers are plenty in their season ; feed it well with Indian corn and sweet apples only (if the lat ter are handy) until December ; shut it away from food for twenty-four hours, then (handling the sacred thing tender ly) tie a stout cord around its legs and hang it to a spike in the beam under your barn ; let one artist hold its wrings firmly in each hand, while another gent ly bleeds it at the throat; pick it dry while warm ; draw its inwards ditto ; let it haDg in a cool place for two nights only ; roast it before a bright, hot wood fire, turning the spit often to keep the juices from congesting on the surface or elsewhere ; set it on a table garnished, if your 'fancy or nature will,' with woodcock, canvas-backs, rail and ortolan, and if you once get a taste of that tur key you will let every other delicacy before you go to the dogs rather than desecrate your palates with trash so in ferior to that king of all game, a corn fed, dry-dressed, well-cooked Rhode Island turkey. So, too, take a twelve-months' old barrow, place him in a roomy, sunny pen, keep him wholly on hard corn and pure water, with occasionally a little salt, until he is fat ; kill and dress him nicely, and salt the chines down with plenty of Turk's Island salt within thirty-six hours of his exit, and you will have pork to eat with your capon that is firm, transparent, rosy, sweet and delicate. So, again, take the hams of such a hog, cure them well with blown salt and saltpeter, smoke them with clean fresh corn-cobs and nothing else (letting them cool off nights) until they attain the complexion of a hazel nut, or of one of Titian's most char acteristic portraits a trifle subdued. Then boil it slowly, and when thor oughly done let it stand a night in the liquor, and yon will have the only thing of beauty' that is worthy to be eaten off the same plate with your Rhode Island turkey, and equal to the best Westphalia, North Carolina. .New born or Cincinnati bacon. Moral Courage. Have the courage to discharge a debt when you have the money in your pocket. Have the courage to speak your mind when it is necessary that you should do so, and hold your tongue when it is prudent to do so. Have the courage to own that you are poor, and thus disarm poverty of its sharpest sting, nave the courage to tell a man why you will not lend him money. Have the courage to tell a man why yon refused him credit. Have the courage to cut the most agreeable acquaintance you have when you are convinced that he lacks princi ple ; a friend should bear with a friend's infirmities, but not with his vices. Have the courage to show your re spect for honesty, ia whatever guise it appears, and your contempt for dishon esty and duplicity, by whomsoever it is exhibited. Have the courage to wear your old clothes until vou can pay for new ones. Have the courage to prefer comfort and propriety to fashion, m all things. Have the couraee to acknowledge your ignorance, rather than i eek for knowledge under false pretenses. Have the courage, in providing en teittinoient for your friends, not to ex ceed your means. Have the courage to e bey your Maker at the risk of being ridiculed by man. Enchanted Park in Colorado.

Denver Mirror. English Laces. Some specimens of English laces were shown at the South Kensington exhibi tion this year, the thread of which cost $800 per pound. Much of this thread had to be wasted, not being sufficiently perfect Th threads of these and other laces are so attenuated that the slight est motion in the air foils the worker. and even when this is imperceptible, a north wind has the same enect. So gos samer-like are some of the filaments. that separate threads are almost undis tinguishable to the naked eye, unless backed by color. Kitchen Conveniences. One of the most desirable convenien ces for a farmer's kitchen is a well painted floor, yet there are many that are never painted, and the hard-working mother must spend much time and strength scrubbing and cleaning and take much careful thought about her work that no grease or stain will touch the flor. Or sometimes, as we hate know a mothers to do, she must carry her creeping baby an hour or two at a time because it could not be put. down while the floor was damn ; or if the washing is larger and later than usual, the floor can not be cleaned, because it would not dry before the men folks and children must come in to supper, so the cleaning must be left till another day, a thing which all good housekeepers disii&e to do. Any skillful woman can easily paint her own Kitchen ; two quarts of oil, three pounds ochre and one pint of japan. will paint a floor twelve by eighteen feet, and the time and labor thus saved will be worth many times the cost. We have just given ours its annual coating of paint, and now, no matter what our worn may be, whether butchering, cheese-making, churning or canning fruit, in one-quarter the time taken to clean an nnpainted floor, we can make ours as neat as ever, with not a trace of grease or stain, and sooner than it was cleaned, it will be dry, ready for use. Another convenience which is not easy to do without is a arood-sized sink. five or six feet long, two and one-half wide, finished with a board, one foot wide, at the back, against the wall above the sink, after the manner of the line board of floors. At the top of this board, and resting on it, should be a shell for lamps, vases, etc. Under ths sinks should be a place for iron ware; at the end should be a pump. and if soft water is to be furnished by cisterns, there should be a pump at each end, one tor solt and the other for hard water. If possible, the cock stove should be at the right of the sink, and the pantry lat the left. A portable t n conductor, that can be attached to the pump, and placed over the kettle, will save much hftiDg water. In this way little boys can easily fill the boiler on working days. Next, there should be in every kitch en a high-seated chair, five or six inches higher than a common chair. This can be used in doing many kinds of house work, and the work can be done just as quickly and much easier than when standing. These are only a few of the most sim ple conveniences which one may have to lighten the kitchen work, but they are the very things that will enable the mother to do much of the house-work that she could not otherwise accomplish There are many kinds of labor-saving machines that can be purchased by those who have means to do so, and the amount paid occasionally by some families for in efficient help would purchase machinery that would be a lasting benefit, and in some cases might prevent the necessity of hiring. We all enjoy work better when we have pleasant conveniences to do eur work with. The farmer will be a little more ambitious about getting in his crops and making his garden when he has good implements, and, perhaps, new machinery, that will enable him to per form work quickly and successfully, The housekeeper will not find work drudging when she has a conveni ent, well arranged kitchen, with pleas ant furnishings for the room. Children will like to help about the housework if there are articles to do it with that make it pleasant for them to learn. We do not know of any better use of the well earned money of the farmer than to purchase with it that which shall light en labor, and make home pleasant, and save the time and strength and health of the workers, whether they be men, women or children. It is a mistaken idea that anyttiing will do for the kitch en ; rather let us make this most neces sary room in our houses neat, cheerful and attractive. There are many of us who are toiling in the by-ways f life who will never Know but little of earth ly pleasure, unless we find it in our daily cares. Our homes may be very humble, our rooms few and small, but if we make the most and best of what we have to do with, in these homes we may receive our guests, no matter what they are, without one word of apology, Journal of the Farm. That Mischievous Young Brother. The moral to the following, told by the sutterer, is too apparent to mention. Young ladies will hereafter run their brothers out when gentlemen call : I'm certain I wished somebody would spank the young rascal. We talked of hills, mountains, valleys and cataracts (I believe I said water-falls), when the boy spoke up and said : ' Why, sister's got a trunk full of them up-stairs ; pa says they are made of horse-hair. The revelation struck terror into me. and blushes into the cheeks of my fair C3mpamon. It began to be very apparent to me that I must be very guarded in what I said, lest the boy might slip in h'8 re marks at uncalled-for places ; in fact I turned my conversation to him, and told him he ought to go home with me and see what nice chickens we had in the country. Unluckily, I mentioned a yoke of calves my brother owned. The little one looked up and said : "Sister's got a dozen pair of them, but she don't wear 'em only when she goes up town on windy days." ''Leave the room, yeu unmannerly wretch !" cried Emily ; " leave quick !" " I know what you want me to leave the room for," he replied; "you cant fool me. You want to set on that man's lap and kiss him like you did Bill Jones the other dav; you can't fool me, I jes tell you. Gimme some candy like he did, and I'll go. You think because you've got the Grecian bend you're smart. Guess I know a thing or two. I'm mad at yon, anyhow, because papa would have bought me a top yesterday if it hadn't been for getting them curls, dog yer ! You needn't turn so red in the "face, 'ciuse I can see the paint. There ain't no nse winking with that elass-eye of yonrn, for I ain't going out o' here, now that's what the matter with the pnrps. I don't care if yon are twenty-eight years old, you ain't no boss o me. Practical Joke by a Fish. A gentleman living on the Savannah river, Georgia, was in the habit of send ing Ms negroes down the river to fish with nets as the tide served. On one occasion two of his boys reached the fishing-ground before the tide had falle n sufficiently for. their purposes. Cuffee always goes to sleep when he has nolhirg else to do. So, pushing a pole into the mud, they tied the eaace thereto, and, lying down, intended to sleep till the tide settled. But along came a huge devil-fish, which grabbed up the pole, and, tucking it under his flipper, began to tow the canoe and its contents toward the deep water. When the negroes awoke they were terrified well-nigh out of their wits. They were proceeding to sea at the rate of about four miles an hour, but the power pro pelling was invisible. The first im pulse was to jump overboard, but it occurred to them in time, fortunately, that they were unable to swim. Final ly the rope by which master devil fish was towing them was cut, and they reached the land in a pitiable state of terror. An individual of this species has been known to take np the kedge of a small schooner and carry it for upward of a mile, towing the vessel that dis tance, when he dropped the anchor, ap parently fatigued with the amusement.

A Vow TTamnsViirA man wants seven dollars from a village board as damages for his wife's broken leg, but he'll prob ably settle for three, as he'll save four dollars' worth of provisions while her appetite is poor. THE GRANGERS. Forty-one granges were organized in Virginia in May. The grange mill at J anesville, Wis. , has just received an order from Kentuc ky for the shipment direct to a grange in that state of a car-load of flour. The Rice county (Minn.) grange mill company has purchased six acres of land in Faribault, paying $3,000, and work has already been commenced upon the mill. Patrons at Lowell, Henry county, Iowa, have been sent cLculars from Chicago swindhrs proposing to forward "English sewing machines" for $22, which are worth $60 or $70. The Kansas executive committee warn those who organize granges iu occupied territory that in future tbey will have to consolidate with other granges or surrender their chatter. The Kansas Farmer objects to the order taking so much money out of the state, and shows that if the dispensa tion fee were $5 instead of $15 the sum of $14,000 would have been retained in Kansas. Agents for a Chicago " grange store," are selling coffee by sample in Monroe county, Ind., thirty pounds for $2, where a club of sixty are made, OEe-half cash, balance on delivery of goods. The goods have not been de livered, as a matter of course. The Patrons at Faribault, Dodge Center, and Cherry Grove, Minn., have adopted the plan of taking tenders for their trade, which is given to the mer chant asking the least advance on cost, the invoice being open to inspection. Eight per cent, is the present rate, which represents an immense saving. Of course, the Patrons will see that the merchants don't get two invoices, one to trade on and one to pay by. The spirit of all secret orders is too often lost sight of mere form taking the place of that purer, higher, and more" noble sentiment of fraternity upon which all secret orders, and especially the order of Patrons, are professedly founded. The moral instead of the mental faculties the heart instead of the head, should guide and govern the thoughts and actions of Patrons in a far greater degree than they do. We do not fulfill all our solemn obligations, voluntarily taken, when we go through with the forms and ceremonies of tho ritual; there is, or ought to be, a holier motive for our actions than the too common one of sordid gain or ex cellence in prescribed formality. lx. About 7,000 of the Patrons of St. Joseph, La Porte and Elkhart counties, Indiana, together with a few from the neighboring connties of Michigan, met for the purpose of having a good time at South Bend recently. The principal event was an address by Henley James, the state grange master, who stated that, though a year ago they only num bered twenty-eight granges, the whole number of subordinate granges is now 2,100 and rapidly increasing, so that by July 1 he expects to see Indiana ahead of any other state in the Union. He estimates the membership in Indiana to exceed 100,000. He gave a sketch of the doings of the order, among which he mentioned that it saved $1,000,000 to Indiana farmers in the year in the pur chase of goods and implements. A Patron gives this advice to his brethren: "Do not meddle with any business you know nothing of. Have order, system, regularity and prompt ness. Do not kick every stone, unless they lay directly in your path. More miles can be made in a day by going steadily on, than stopping by the way side. Endeavor to avoid all hard words and personalities. Learn to say 'no.' No necessity for snapping it out dog fashion, but say it firmly aad respect fully. A grange of honor respect their word as they do their bond. They aid, but never beg. Pay as you go. Never fool in business matters. Have no con fidants ; at least, the fewer the better. Learn to think and act for yourselves. Thoroughly investigate before going in to any business of great importance. Keep your tables and stands well spread with journals of scientific matter. Farmers have long been aware of the folly, and worse than folly, of go ing to law, bit the lack of business and social intercourse with their neighbors often prevents a proper understanding of right and mutual interest, encoura ges suspicion and jealousy, and too of ten leads them to rush into the courts, and sometimes dividing the whole neighborhood into active partisans. But. thanks to the influence of the or der of the Patrons of Husbandry, this disturbing element in farm life through out the country generally is rapidly dis appearing. The order had brought farmers into closer communion with each other, and has developed mutual confidence and respect ; and without the assistance of any secret charm has produced a change which is now sub stituting arbitration for law. Arbi tration is one of the grand principles of the order, and is already producing important material results, as well as promoting peace and harmony in many neighborhoods. The papers which are most widely circulated among the Patrons are filled with advertisements soliciting tte cus tom of the granges in New York city and other distributing centers. While in many instances these cards are those of trist-worthy and responsible deal ers, it is impossible to avoid expressing the opinion that they are inserted foi fraudulent purposes. Great grange tea or furnishing companies will frequently. if traced out, be found to have for a warehouse a fifth story, ten by-nine of fice, and for stock nothing but swindling circulars, and the assurance and dishon esty of the man who is the company There are dozens of agents traveling through the country selling excellent goods if they only were ever delivered, or at all equal to sample for fabulous ly low prices, taking a small installment of the cash, and promising to collect the balance on delivery. Others are promising to send six pounds of Mocha coffee for one dollar to large clubs. The first man who sends his money gets the coffee ; the clubs captured by this bait never hear from their remittances. Oth er dealers sell only to holders of tickets costing from twenty five cents to one dollar each, and the credulous customer who invests is out so much. Oa geuer al principles it is safe for the farmer to remit no money to advertisers who offer particularly brilliant inducements. Something is not to be had for nothing, even in this day of granges and cheap stores, and it is extremely doubtful whether thoss who fall victims to these sharpers, after fair warning, deserve auy sympathy whatever.

"Visiting cards a century ago were not mere bits of pasteboard, with an indi vidual's name and address, as now ; in stead, charming vignettes real models of art and composition, by great artists found their place on cards made for fashionable people. The taste for these elegancies undoubtedly originated in Paris, but their use was not by any man ner of means confined to that gay city : ornamental cards were carried by the elite all over Europe, and their design ers not only exercise i their ingenuity upon those made for visiting purposes ilone, but they found profitable work in theater and concert tickets, letters an nouncing marriages, ceremonies, pro grammes, etc. Some four or five hun dred of these cards, used in the days when all sorts of devices were found on them, have been collected from different sources by M. Piogey, a Frenchman. Among them are found" not only many great names and the work of celebrated artists, but some exceedingly unique designs. One is described as ornament ed with the picture of an ass carrying a flag, with a name inscribed thereon; an other has a wreath of roses bordered with olives. Mr. Adam Bertsch, of Vi enna, left two specimens worthy of no tice, and showing very plainly his love for the canine species. One, a spaniel, is holding the card bearing his address in his mouth ; another is a savage dog, which has jost torn a roll of paper marked with the date of 1795 ; beneath is written : "Adam Bertsch has the pleasuru of presenting his compliments and good wishes for the new year." Fischer, of Berne, made a rebus of his name ; his card presented the picture of two men and a woman drawing a net, A new counterfeit of the recent is sue of fifty-cent scrip has just made its appearance.
