For the 3rst quality of aHoy 93 per cent, of iron, 7J of tungsten and of nickel are employed; for the second quality, 95 per cent, of soft iron, 4J of tungsten and J half of nickel ; for the third quality, 97 per cent, of seft iron, 2 of tungsten and of nickel. Turpentine. Venice turpentine is obtained from the larch, and is said to be obtained in peculiar f acs in the up per part of the stem, and to be obtained by puncturing them. It is a ropy li quid, colorless, or brownish green, hav . ing a somewhat unpleasant odor and bitter taste. Oil of turpentine is the most plentiful and useful of oils. It is obtained in this country from a species of pine very plentiful in the Carolina?, Georgia and Alabama. The tree is known as the long leaved pine (pinus Australia), and is found only where the original forest has not been removed. . PRESERVATION OF PHOTOGRAPHS. A simple invention for the preservation of cards, photographs, etc., from injury by moisture or dirt consists of a prepara tion of gutta-percha in solution. The liquid is thrown, in a very fine spray, over the article by an atomizer. VVhen the liquid has in part evaporated, which it soon does, it leaves the object coated over with a thin, trannluscent film, im pervious to water. The gutta-percha should first be purified, and it then is soluble in chloroform cr ether. The process of dissolving the gum is in it self purifying. A drawing or photo graph protected by this film can be washed with safety. The preparation softens at a temperature of 150 degrees Fahr., but to this only a rare accident would subject it. TBAVEiiiNo ox the Farm. Did any of your readers ever think of the amount of travel it takes to raise a crop of corn? I never saw an illustration in print, and I thought I would give you one. I have a twenty-acre field, forty by eighty rods. To break this up would take one hun dred and sixty-six miles ; harrowing it, about forty miles ; furrowing out, nine ty miles ; planting, forty-five miles, if with a planter, and if dropped and then covered, ninety miles ; and for each plowing of two furrows in a row, ninety miles, or five plowings, four hundred and fifty miles. Thus you will see it takes about eiht or nine hundred miles of travel to raise twenty acres of corn, not counting going to aud returning lrom the field. Besides, there is re planting, thinning, rolling, etc. Indi ana Farmer. The Fishino Frog. Writers on na tural history describe a hideous reptile, known as the fishing fro?, which angles for its game as expertly and with as great success as the most adroit fly fisher. He is a clumsy, awkward swim mer, but nature has compensated him for his unwieldiness by furnishing him with an equivalent for a rod and line, with bait always ready for use. Two elongated tentacles spring from his nose, which taper away like actual fishing rods. To the end of them is attached by a slender filament, which serves the purpose of a line, a bait in the form of a shiny bit of membrane. The hooks are set in the mouth of the fisherman below, and in order to induce the fish to venture within reach of them, the angler stirs up the mud at the bottom with his fias and tail. This attracts the fish and eonceals him from their obser vation, lie then plies his rod ; the glit tering bait glows in the water like a liv ing insect. The dazed fish are taken in great numbers, perfectly circumvented by the trick of the crafty angler. Ax Unfortunate Island. Some months ago, the little Island of Niceros, in the Grecian Archipelago, was shaken by a series of earthquakes, which did much damage, aud culminated in the bursting of the highest peak on the island, and the discharge of a flood of steam and boiling water, which threat ened to inundate the whole island and destroy every living thing on it. The mountain, however, sue denly ceased to boil over, and it was hoped for a time there would be no recurrence of the un pleasant phenomena. But, the other day, the mountain resumed its horrid belching, emitting suoh volumes of Maiding water that existence on the island has become almost intolerable. The ground is convulsed with earth quakes, and the people have taken to the open fields, where they are safer than in their tottering homes. A scarcity of provisions is added to their other troubles; and, without houses, without food, and a monster in view perpetually pouring out streams of boiling water, menacing them with a horrible death, their condition is by no means enviable. Skunks and Hydrophobia. An art iole in the American Journal of Science and Arts presents the nnplfasint an imal m a new attitude. It appears that t the Tesi these creatures have a habit "of biting people at times, and that the bite always results in hyhrophobia. A large number of cases are cited in illus tration. The hydrophobia produoed by other animals is much le.es fatal than that from the skunks. From this it is possible to infer that the disease orig inated with these animals, and they have transmitted it to others, its power being, a always, lessened by transmis sion. They are its originators. Then, to carry out a suggestion offered in the article, it is noticeable that the odorous secretions of the skunk, when adminis tered in proper quantities, have a very beneficial effect upon all sorts of con valsive trouble and attacks of that kind. The inference is then made that the liquid is an antidote for the poison of the bite, and the idea is thrown out that in the skunk the source aud cure of hydrophobia may be simultaneously discovered, if any scientific person feels inclined to wrestle with a problem of such innate strength. Lightning. Danger from lightning, as experience shows, is less in a crowded town than in a village or in the open country, an 1, naturally, the more ele vated structures are the most liable to be struck. Fuller, indeed, in his Church History," asserts that there noarcfcly ever existed a great abbey in England which had not been, at one time or another, wholly or paitially de stroyed by lightning, and his citations, taken in comparison with the records of our own times, are certainly remarkable. In all caes it is the spire, the tower, and the dome which has been mutilated. As to ordinary habitations, all sorts of theories are in vogue on the subjects of danger and safety. Some rely on thick glass in the window, BOme on reg ister stoves; others recommend stone roofs instead of slate, and others tell timid people that they should live in a hollow. It is contended on this side that there should be the leatt possible admixture of metal in the combination of an inhabited structure; and on that, that all the bells beneath the roof should be kept continually ringing, just as, in obedience to an old superstition, cannon are fired at sea. The mass of evidence upon this topic points, however, to the one conclusion already suggested, that a good lightning-conductor is the soli tary safeguard, but that, unless good, it ia worse than cone."

The following sketch is from an illus trated article by " Porte Crayon," in Harper s for July. The writer, in com pany with a party of friends, is on an expedition through the mountains of West Virginia, and stop for a day at the Winston Tavern : During the afternoon our company was swelled by the addition of sundry teamsters and drovers, habitues of the road, and several mountaineers who straggled in to pick up items of infor mation from the great world outside, to chuffer about cattle, and incidentally to mix a little narcotic stimulant with their news as a digester. Among these we remarked a tall, athletic, black-bearded fellow, whose eyes twinkled with a cer tain savage facetiousness, and whose swaggering sociability shamed all cere mony. Approaching our party, he sa luted with a grace of, a man who has had a bear for his dancing-master, and opened conversation in the lingo of the mountains, mixed, jumbled, and infla ted with words and phrases which indi cated some remote acquaintance with books or educated society. Seeing that we were disposed to be amused at his eccentric guest, the landlord joined us. and suggested that Mr. Rowzey should entertain us with his great bear story, Well, now, Best, you know I've fit and killed so many bar in my time that your request appears ondehnite." Mr. Best particularize '. " Of that bout you had with the bears who stole your honey. Now, Bes' quoth Bowzey, in a de precating tone, " I wouldn t mind a-tel lin of that story to you or any of these mountain men about here, because you konw hit's every word the truth ; but these gentlemen are entire strangers to me, as most likely they are to bar hun tin', and they mought think some pints of that story rather strong for their civ ilized stomachs, and I bein' a person notorious for my character and judicious of my integrity, and respectably con nected down in the old state, I shouldn't risk to have my word misdoubted, spe cially among pen tie men sich as these appears to be. The major here assured the speaker that we were really to pledge ourselves in advance to believe every word he said, and as the weather was sultry, he requested Mr. Best to serve a large pitcher 01 mint lulep. Them remarks," said Rowzey, " shows that you understand business. and are jist the gentleman I took yon for." After a preliminary drink and some wordy compliments to the liquor, the historian seated himself and began his story : " A bar is looked on by the onexpe rienced as a mighty turrible beast ; and so he is, 'specially if he happens to be an oia eno. . rne Dar is also a mazm cute eretur, and can tell by a man's countenance whether he's good to eat or not. Now as for yon, sir," touching his hat to the major " a sensible bar would most likely walk around and trot off ; but this here feller " laying his hand on Cockney's shoulder "he'd make a comfortable meal of at first sight." The audience laughed, and Rowzey iook another drins. "A bar," he continued, "is an ani mal to be respected and imitated. He seldom goes out of his way to injure anybody, but he don't stand much foolin if anybody undertakes to med dle with him. He remembers a good turn longer than most men do, and if he has a weakness for honey, I've never knowed him, of his own accord, to mix it with aDy thing deleterious. So much for the principal character in my story, ana a must loilow with a short sketch of myself before I come to the main point. Not far from where I was borned there lived an old Woman that was believed to be a witch. Now when ever a baby was borned she could tell at first sight what he or she was likely A 1 - . 1 . - . wj vo goou lor in me woria. When she see my oldest brother lookin' so cute out ef his eyes, and holdin' his little fists so tight, she condemned him to be a lawyer. And so it was. He turned out to be cne of the biggest rascals in it. . . i . - . mi . uuiu enici u Virginia. xue secona boy my mother fetched was prophesied for a famous politician, and he crowed up still worse than the lawyer, if so be sieii a thing is possible. Tsow when the old woman was called on to look at me, she sot for a loner time in a kind of a brown study. At last she spoke np. This boy,' says she, has got the gifts that might set him ahead of either of his brothers, but it would be a 6hame to brine: up sioh a stout and open-handed baby to any of them weakly, sneakin' businesses. "D.td.ly took the thing to heart, and bein' flattered with her prognostications ooncernm of me, concluded to do full justioe to my faculties and bring me up as a bar-hunter ; and so he christened me Rowzey, after old Leather Bill At kins' big bar dog. This dog aforesaid was so turrible on wild varmints that brother Ballard, the lawyer (who was high larnt), told Leather Bill if he wasn't stopped there would be no game left in the mountains no more than than there was in the island of Chios after Orion's raid. Not bein' much ad dicted to Scrioture, I don't know what that meant. No more did old Leather ; but the expression skeered him, and he sent his dog away. Well, no sooner was I fairly weaned than daddy begins my eddication by gittin' me a six-months-old bar cub for a playmate. That cub was named Riugh, acoordin' to his nater, and he was a very comfortable friend as long as we were roomin or sleepin' together; but when our bowl of mush-and-milk was sot down there was a suspension of sociabilities until one of us got a sound wallopin, and the winner finished the mnah-and-milk. "Rough and me generally fit fair, but he would sometimes take a mean advantage when he found 1 had the up per baud in a fight ; he tipsot the pan, well aware that when it came to lap ping milk off the floor he was boss and I nowhere. In spite of these little un pleasantnesses we both managed to keep fat and hearty, and no outside beast, or human ever undertook to poke his snout! between us without feelin the strength of cur friendship. When we had giowed to be three or four years old. Rough, acoordin' to bar nater, had got so far ahead of me, and so careless about my clothes, that mammy begin to feed us in separate pans. ThU new plan was bo mighty quiet that, mammy, fearing we might pine for our usual ex ercise and excitement, would sometimes lop a bowl of milk into the mush-pot, and allow ns to go for the scrapin's ?" We were constrained to acknowledge our ignorance oi the term. With i smile of benignant pity for cur eim plioity, our narrator proceeded : lit our settlement it was the pride of good housekeepin' to keep the mush pot always hot and never empty, and what with fillin and refillin' you might reckon it would get pretty well gummed up. It was cooled off and scraped mostly oi a Saturday evening. How, gentlemen, them scrapin's, all so crisp and crusty, had a flavor that was mighty enticin' to boys and bars, and I can t help feelin sorry for a feller whose boyhood hain't been enriched with the recollections thereof. But to f oiler the text. Although it monght be supposed human wit would have given me some advantage over abrute beast, yet, to tell the truth, Rough's muscle was gettin' a little too much for my strength and sci ence together, as appeared one day when a whole coach-load of our lawyer and politician relatives came to make a sociable visit to daddy and mammy. I believe the whole notion ef it was to be fool him and her into sign in' some pa per, that they mought cheat him oaten his land. But the bar and me knowed nothin' of that, bein' sent together in the kitchen whan the company landed, mammy bein' ashamed to show ns with the pretty children all dressed in store clothes and ribbons. But this put Rough and me both in a bad humor ; so we fell a-quarrelin between our selves, and presently we had a row, and he slapped me into the slop-tub head foremost, where I mought have drowned if, at the same time, he hadn't npsot the tub in his awkwardness. Now our visitors had just laid off their cloaks and bonnets, and was a-slicken' up their children's curls, and a-braggin' of their smartness, when in I straddled, drippin out of the slops, and bawlin' like a bull calf. Now mammy was one of those hard-hearted Women that sets no value on calico and store knick-knacks for her self, but to see her braar child cut tin ich a figure in company was a little too much, and she flared up like an armful of brush. " Husband, said she, either that boy or that bar has got lo leave this house. The brute has outgrown the child, it has, and they can't get along agreeable no more, and on account of its onmannerliness it's onpossible to Keep Kowzey dressed decent, it is.' " ' Well, what's to be done about the boy s ed Jication? says dad. " Mammy suggest d that I was git tin big enough to go to school. Dad had hearn say it was more aristocratic and safer for the children's morals to have a private tutor, so he swore we should hold on to the bar. "This went on as usual for a while, when the family dispute was settled by a onforseen circumstance. One day I was roastln' of a tater in the ashes, when I observed Rough a -set tin' off by the door a-watchin me out of the cor ner of his eye. I mistrusted his inten tions, and as I knowed I was no longer a match for him in a scramble, I jist kivered my tater a little deeper, and slyly put the poker to heat iu the coals. When it was done, I took np the poker and poked out my tater on the hearth. No sooner was it clear of the hot ashes than Rough's paw covered it, and slap went the red poker atop of his paw. There was a yell you mought have heard a mile off, and the whole cabin smelt of burst har. I was scared myself: so. droppin' the poker and husthn' up my roast, I started for the atable loft, but at the room-door I met daddy comiu' in all in a name. " 'Rowsey, said he, what have you been a doin' to that poor brute beast ?' "'Nothin',' says I, feelin' mighty mean. ' He grabbed my tater, and I licked him, that's all. And it was a fair fiKht. " But what do you think the cussed brute done? Why, he jist held up his burnt paw to show daddy, and then went nosin' and whinin' around the hot poker, tellin' the whole Ftory in fewer words than any human could have done. Well, dad jist divided his judgments by givin' Rough the tater and givin' me fits, which was sweetened by my seein' the brute eat it, all the while" makin' impudent faces at me, while I stood Bnivelin' in a corner. We never had any more friendship or confidence in each other after that. All the art fulness of my nater was roused by the wish to git square with the brute unbe known to daddy ; and Rough never see me pick np anything after that, even a chip, that he didn t run and hide hisself. Mammy took advantage of the cool ness, and poor Rough, like Ishmael, was sent back into the wilderness. Af ter he was gone it come back to me that I had acted a mighty mean part toward my old companion, and for many a day I felt lonesome and pinin' whenever I thought of him. Then I was sent to school a while, where I was licked through from a b ab to Constantinople in less than two years, fit the boy-, kissed the girls, and picked up an amount of book larnin' and high die. that has been an advantage to me ever since, as you gentlemen can plainly see. But as soon as I had grown big enough to handle a rifle dad took me home agin, to shine np my professional edu cation under hisself. Touchin' lightly on the vulgar business of plowin' and plantin' corn, he larnt me to track a deer and line a wild bee to sich a cer tainty that we never was scarce of meat nor honey in out house, though we did sometimes have to trade for corn meal. One evenin', as I was a-comin' home from watchin' a deer lick, I meets a bar right in the path. I was so took by surprise that 1 hred my gun in the air, then quickly dropped it, and drawed my butcher knife ; tut the varmint wasn't so much scared, and sot on his hind-legs, shadin' his eyes with hi? paw, as if he was tryin' to make out who I was. That paw I Eoticed had a streak of white har across it, and the next minute we were hugged in each other's arms ; for you may well believe old Rough and me was mighty pleased to see each other. " Now, gentleman, a dog can always express his feelin's, or git our good-will, by a 'movin' tail,' but a bar is not like wise gifted, bem' limited to wry faces and awkward paws, and to nave seen old Rough tryin' to say his say would have made you bust a-laughin ; but, gentlemen, it was plain to see the cre- tur's heart was in the right place. He bore me no grudge for the past, and tried to hide that scarified paw for fear I mought feel bad about it. Seein' that my old friend wasn't nigh so sleek and crlossv as he used to be, I conceited he was leadin a tolerable hard life, and tried to persuade him to foller me home, explainin' to him that we wasted enough at the cabin to keep him fat to the eend of his days. But no ; his mind was fixed ; his only answer was a mournful shake of the head, and givin' me a far'well squeeze, he trotted away into the woods. As he went, I thought I see him lift his paw to wipe a faUin' tear. You may laugh, gentlemen, but there is more humanity about dumb cre- turs than we are awar' of mostly. "For a long time after that I was afeard to risk a shot at a bar, and to shun temptation, give np carry-in' a gun, and turned my attention chief! v to hunt in' bee trees. They were plenty enough in our mountains, and for convenience I built me a camp some way off from the settlements, and hewed o.t a big trough to hold the honey I gathered. Now I filled my trough from time to time, but every uight the varmints came and cleaned me out, which I knowed to be bars, seein' their tracks, and bein' awar' of their likin's. After losin my labor in this way for some time, I bethink3 me of a plan for gittin' even with 'cm. I gits me a keg of peach brandy, and savin' a very moderate supply for' my own needcessities, I pours the liquor into my trough, and mixe"l it pretty thick with honey. Then I whetted my knife, aud retired to the camp to watch the effect of my trap. I carried a gourd fell of the mix with me. which was so cussed sweet that I can't mind anything more inai nappencd until to-morrow mornin , when l whs awakened by a hullaballoo the like of which I never heard before or tinoe. Clearin the husks out of nay throat with a swip from my jug, 1 draws my knife, and creeps on all fours toward the honey trough, where I see a sight which filled me watt astonishment and laughter. The whole place was black with bars. I wouldn't like to risk my reputation which ia undoubted by statin' the number. There mought have been a hundred, more or less, of all ages -and sizes, from an old six-hundred-pounder to a six-months cub, all drunk as Chris tians. Now the longer I studied their doins' the more nateral they looked, jist as I've-seed civilized humans carryin on np at .Beverly alter an election-day. Sich was the elevatin' influences of good liquor on savage brutes, which appeared to raise 'em so nigh to onr level, that as I laid there watchin' for a chance to go in I begin to feel as if I was plottin' murder against my fellow-creturs. " Howsomedever, what I mought have concluded don't much signify, for : ii i 3 a i - . , . preaenuj u uia bod, nappemn to stag ger into the thicket where I was hid, caught sight of me, and give a yell that iairiy mtea the nat off my head, and fetched every bar to his feet. Appar ently my time was short ; but still cal culatin' to stampede 'em, I up with a mighty-shout, slitherin the old blather skite that raised the alarm. I went in through the brush like a whirlwind. It was a foolish idee. Feach-and-honey don't make brutea skeery no more than it does men, and in less than two min utes I was smotherin under a squirmin' stack of bar meat the size of dad's cabin. Now, as I wasn't smashed to death, my position mought be rightly considered providential, for the bodies of the brutes that lay next to me kiv ered me agin the teeth and claws of the outsiders, and bein' well-nigh smoth ered themselves, they were obliged to ngnt outward tor fresh air. But it don't signify to be tellin' how I got out of there, for I don't exactly know my self. Howsomdever, when I rose and got my breath, I see the bars all around me fightin' among themselves, makin' the fur fly like feathers at a goose- n nl. . ' .3 '. L - . . piuvaiu , nuu 411110 onminaiui oi tne stranger among 'em. I moueht have cleared myself then, but my blood was up, ana walked through 'em, stabbm right and left, onmerciful as a mad wild-cat, respectin' neither atre nor sex. Jist then several Id fellers appeared to get a smell of me, and closed in mighty savage, wniie imin iront, a rascally old sqneezer grabbed me around the neck from behind. I struck backward. feelin' my knife enter his cussed carcass a dozen times ; but it didn't loosen his grip, and I felt my strength goin'. At this pint a big bar poked his head up from behind the honey trough, rubbin' his little eyes as if he had jist waked up. In a minute he broke for ns. " Rowzey,' thinks I, it's time for family worship. Now I lay me down to sleep ' " As I prayed I made a stab at the Dig he, who shunned the blade, and, to my astonishment, jrrabbed the beast in front of me with his left paw, sending him heels over head; then with his right he tore the fellow off my back. I was too far gone to ask questions, but bein loose once more I broke for camp. There I barricaded myself in with poles, and laid pan tin' and pippin' peach and honey until I fairly come to my strength agin . It took me some time longer to get up pluck enough to venture back to ward the battle-ground. Howsomdever, late in the afternoon I did oreen down that way, mighty like a sheep dog at ursi, oui Doiuer wnen x see that every thing was quiet. Around that honey trough lay twenty-two dead bar. and old. Gentlemen, I value my repu tation too high to weigh it agin bar meai. tjrem lemen, x counted them bod ies as they lay, and you may think I was mighty proud as I viewed the ground. Well, I mought have been, but there was one corpse too many there for my peace of mind. Over by the honey trough, jist where my life was saved, as I thought, by the miracu lous mistake of a drunken old bar, there lay two Doaies, clutched in adeathfrrip, jist as they had fell fightin'. Thtry were badly tore, and the leaves all around soaked and stained ; but as I stooped over to look closer, I felt a cold shiver that froze clean to mv bones. There was the white paw, stiff ana Diooay. uentlemen, there lay Rough, my old playmate." The rugged hunter drew his sleeve across his eyes, reached over for the pitcher, and turned it bottom upward over ma empty glass. "Well, is that all?" asked Dick, urawiuR a long Dream. "Hit's all the liquor," quoth Row zey, with a dry wink. "Of the story there's yit another pint or two at your service. a vrrn t 1 . . . en, x weni 10 work savin my meat with a heavy heart, and next day got some fellers up from the settlements with horses and sleds to help me down with it. There was sich a pile hat all the neighbors gathered in to look and get a share, a d there was a mighty guessin' and bettin on the weight Now we had no steelyards nor scales of any kind ; but there was old Bill Swan son, who had got weighed oust when he was down to the llanawha Salt-works, and acoordin to his recollection, which was good when he staid sober (which he never did wniin ly), he drawed jist two hundred and eighty, down weight, on the salt-works scales. Well, we jist laid a stout rail aorost a stump, seesaw fashion, and sot Bill on one eend and piled bar meat on the ether, till we got his heft which we did ; I now disre member whether hit was seven or seven teen times. Howsomdever, none of us bein scholars enough to subtract that together, we scored the timet on a sar lin', till the school-master come along 10 cipner m up lor us. xsut everybody 'lowed they never see sich a pile of meat in all their bor dayp." "And did you never try that trap again, xtowz ty t " " Oh yes for you see, after old Rough was dead I had bo mercy on bars any more, and I sot that trap over and over. But I fooled away my liquor and honey ; for though my bait was took re gularly, I never see bar nor a bar's track in that neighborhood afterward. But onst I see old Bill Swanson lurkin' around tbar, and havin' my own sus picions, I left off settin'." " And did you not eat old Rough with the rest ?" inquired Dick. " Mister," said the mountaineer, with a gesture of indignant scorn, " sich a question is a discredit to the feller that asks it. Do I look like a lawyer or a heathen cannibal ? No sir ; I buried him decent Dd respectable, with all his har on him, jist as I w. uld a Christian friend, and I tarred his name on a smooth clapboard, and stuck it up at its head.

Washington's old breeches and Gen. Jackson's night-cap, which he wore at the battle of New Or leans." . The narrator heaved a deep sigh, and bowtd to the company. Waterspouts. When a whirlwind occurs out at sea. it agitates the waters contained within its diameter to such a degree as fre quently to cause a column of spray to rise in the air. If the sky is cloudy, the upper strata of the whirlwind acts upon the lower clouds in the same man- mr in which the lower strata acts upon toe surface of the water, and thus causes a column of vapor to descend immediately above the ascending one. These two columns will, if the whirl ing motion of the air continues for any considerable period, become lengthened by the pressure of the atmosphere, and will ultimately join together. What are termed waterspouts in inland dis tricts are quite a distinct phenomena. They are simply very heavy showers of rain confined within narrow limits. These showers may or may not be ac companied with a whirlwind motion of the atmosphere, but will, of course, come nearer our idea of what a waterspout may be when its is so accompanied. --A district schoolmaster in one of the upper counties of Miclu'gan was asked vhat algebra he preferred, and replied: MJb, X am t particular most any kind that will just peel tha hide when you strike." - - THE GRANGERS. The granges and the Sunday-schools of Mendota, 111., united in a picnic cel ebration of the Fourth of July. A Mississippi grange is offering $25 for the best corn and the largest number of bushels from one aore of land ; $15 for the largest number of gallons from one acre of cane, and ten dollars for the largest and best hog raised in Win ston county. , A committee of the Fairfield county, O., grangers' county council visited the merchants and other business men of Lancaster, and requested a special stip ulation of prices on goods of all kinds. They received a uniform answer, that the grangers will be allowed wholesale prices on wholesale quantities, the .same as other patrons, and no discriminating reduction will be made. Some time since a St. Louis granger planted ten cents' worth of peanuts in his back-yard. Scorning the serviees of middle -men, he entered into negotia tions with a retail peanut vender on Ol ive street, and engaged the whole crop at $7.50 per bushel. Last week he ex amined the hills and found that his seed had all rotted in the ground. On consulting an Eastern Tennesseean he learned that peanuts are not a sure crop in the latitude of St. Louis, especially when the seed is thoroughly baked be fore planting. It is one of the main objects of the grange to bring about more of the cour tesies and amenities of life in the social intercourse among the producing classes. It endeavors to instill a love for all that is good and beautiful and true in agri culture ; it inculcates industry and fru gality ; shows them the importance of system ; instructs them in improved methods of cultivation ; increases their facilities for social intercourse and or ganizes them into one compact body upon the principle of mutuality of inter est and congeniality of taste. Why should they be charged with dabbling in politics when they simply undertake to establish a more permanent and re liable system of labor? Does not their very existence depend on this very thing? Then, our advice is, pay no attention whatever to the yelping cry of politics, and if it becomes necessary to memorialize congress with regard to any question vitally affecting the agri cultural interest, do not hesitate to do so. It is admitted by southern papers that the establishment of granges of the order of the Patrons of Husbandry has been productive of many benefits to that region. They have given an impetus to white immigration, so much needed to occupy and fertilize the lands trampled over by hostile armies, and denuded by the calamities of civil war. The area of acres planted in cereals has greatly widened in the last few years, rendering certain localities independent for home supplies of food. Manufactories are also springing up, wherein the abundant raw materials of the south are wrought into fabrics, which before the war were al mcst entirely imported. Georgia has attained pre-eminence in this respect ; the state now boasts numbers of cotton mills in which several thousand opera tives are employed, and which impart a degree of prosperity that is felt by all classes and conditions of society. The Patrons have besides exercised an influ ence in toning down the rancor of party spirit, which had a most demoralizing effect upon the industrial pursuits. The avowed object of the Patrons is to stim ulate the growth of agriculture and to improve the condition of those who en gage in it. This mission they have ac complished, not only in such of the southern states as have adopted the or der.'.but throughout the entire country ; and if they continue to practice upon the design which has been declared to be the paramount object in their organ ization, the measure of their usefulness will be as boundless as the wide field in which tliey propose to conduct their operations. At present the headquarters of the national grange is located at Washing ton,D. C, which is productive of much inconvenience, being far removed from the centre of our heaviest agricultural operations and populations, involving much delay-m communicating with it, as well as an expense, when a visit is necessary. The present location is sub ject to another very serious objection. It is near the focus of the political schemes and machinations of the coun try. Everything of a political nature naturally goes to Washington, and as the organization is non-political in its very essence we can see no good reason why its chief council should be held in that city, but very many why it should be removed to the west. St. Louis, Louisville orCincinnati being the points nearest to the centre of the great grange populations of the nation, are the easiest of access and points involving a less ex penditure of time and money to reach. The wonderful progress made by this beneficent organization develops the hitherto unguessed-at strength in the farms of the nation, and more particu larly those of the young, vigorous west, not only as regards wealth and the power money always gives, not only in regard to the importance of the vast interests represented by them, but also their intellectual weight. This move has unearthed the fact that the farmers of the west tre not behind any other class in their estimates of what most nearly concerns and affects the good of all, and the best and readiest influences to put to work to further this good, and develop its fullest and best phases in the shortest possible time. Applications for membership may be received at any meeting, but ballot ing should be done at a regular meet ing only. At regular meetings the opening should always be in the fourth degree, as there is always business to be done peculiar to this degree. At spe cial meetings for conferring degrees, the opening may be in any degree. Monthly dues from a member to his subordinate grange (minimum ten cents) commence at the beginning of the mouth immedi ately following his initiation. No quar terly dues are payable to the state grange until the beginning of the quarter subsequent to the organization. Thus, a grange organized between the 1st of January and the 1st of April makes no report until the 30th of June, which report includes quarterly dues from April 1. The subordinate grange pays no membership fees to the state grange on charter members, but only on those admitted to membership after the beginning of the first full quarter. One of two granges desiring to consoli date should .vote to surrender their charter and consolidate with tho other. The other should vote to receive all the members of the surrendering grange en mas& authenl to the and th return' it is isi with tl consol thentiq retary grange meetin vote of lar meet given governs grangei?a must ns uu fU llib sa'-Sfc., with another grange, unless me con- sent of the latter be previously ob grange desire to tamed.

Bad cookii g may cause a dwindling of the? race, ruination of the temper, and deterioration of the morals. Good cook ing, on the other hand,. is accompanied by national prosperity and domestic blisav So say fhe promoters of the na tional training school of cookery, who are undoubtedly right in the main, and are deserving of all imaginable success. Now. cooking is both an art and a science. For its progress as an art we are not greatly concerned, aithougn our pro fession would undoubtedly suffer in pocket should fice-art cookeiy go out of fashion. "Elegant" dishes are gener al lv whited serjulchers. and the forerun ners cf blue pills and pther disagreea- ble correctives. We hope that the school will busy itself mainly in impart ing a knowledge of the soientiflo princi ples of cooking, and will teach their cooks that the quality par excellence which all food should have is wholesome ness. The bulk of English people live in big cities, and if we were asked to name the most predominating charac teristic of our urban population, we should say "dyspepsia." Those who spend their days in dark offices, cham bers, or consulting rooms, and keep their noses everlastingly upon their re spective grindstones, seldom know that good digestion which should wait on appetite. Hitherto their dinners have not been so skillfully prepared as to demand the least possible effort from a jaded stomach ; but let us hope that the national disgrace of indigestibility will no longer dim the brightness of onr hospitality, and the number of patent medicines which are sold so largely in this country as aids to digestion will undergo a rapid diminution. " One-and-Three." A burlesque of Victor Hugo's novel of " Ninety-three " is now appearing in the pages of Punch under the title of " One-and Three," and it is so clever that its authorship has been attrib uted to Mr. W. S. Gilbert As a taste of its quality we offer the following se lections from a late installment. They are not copious enough to allow the reader to appreciate the travesty of one of the most characteristic scenes in the novel, but they will indicate the success with which Victor Hugo's pecu liar style is hit off : A few minutes later and the captain's gig had been brought out. Bobdilot explained the nautical terms for this gig. They were two shillings for the first hour, eighteen penoe for the second. Nuturally the Old Man began with the second. The captain's gig, once hired, was immediately lowered. This did not alter the price. It was a bargain. An agreement. There are certain provis ions in ever agreement. These were placed in the gig. They were, a dozen of champaigne, tres sec, a Strasbourg pie, a Welsh rabbit, a raspberry and currant tart, three tins of Australian meat, a refrigerator, a cut off the joint and a sausage machine. Till now the Old Man had been the distinguished passenger: now, out of the light, he could no longer be dis tinguished. In the darkness a beggar is as good as a king. The Btart was quickly made. The boat got well away from the vessel. The Old Man in the stern, the sailor, who had volunteered, in the bow ; it was merely a bow without a trunk. In tle stern the Old Man lay asleep on the chest. . The troops on board were the mounted marines. They were divided into of ficers and sub-marines. They nailed the white feather to the mast. Then a din like the peeling of three hundred oranges burst over the depths of the sea. Only those who have peeled three hundred oranges can know what this means. The sailor spoke : "Do you know where we are now ?" The Old Man replied : " I can tell exactly by my magnificent compass." He opened his chest, and produced some notes. He said : " This is the upper sea. A little lower down is a flat. We can land there." Dav appeared. Without Martin. The two sat in the boat. A white and, apparently, a black man. The latter could have explained had he been willing. He could have said, " It is necessary I should be kept dark. He did not say it, however. The silence remained unbroken. A silence once broken cannot be mended. The sailor broke it. He looked fixedly at the man in the stern, and said : " I am the brother of him you or dered to be pitched over." Lightning-Bods. Prof. John Wise recently read a pa per on " Lightning and Thunderbolts ' before the Franklin Institute, Philadel phia, in which he expressed the opin ion, deduced from extended observa tions, that the lightning-rod is utterly useless as a protection from the thun derbolt. "II the rod," he remarked, "could do what is pretanded, viz., draw the surcharge of electricity from the cloud silently, disarm it of its force by drawing it in a silent stream to the point of the rod, not a bolt should ever descend upon a building in Philadel phia, with its thousands of rods peer- mg lowara ine cioua-region. The only defense from thunderbolt, according to the professor, that has yet been proved efficacious, is the metal roof. The greatest damage done to a building thus protected is the peif ora tion of the metal at the point where the bolt strikes ; and this is, in the heavi est discharges, not over from a half to an inch in diameter. From a series of observations, extending over a quarter of a century, the professor has noted no difference in the mechanical effects of a thunderbolt striking buildings with or without rods, save that nearly all the cases of ignition were presented by buildings having lightning-conduc tors. What Causes Fever. Prof. Buckman, of England, claims to have discovered one of the causes of typhoid fever. A family in his neigh borhood was attacked with a severe type of the fever. On a careful search of the premises, a spout in the family pump was found to be 'coated with a sort of gelatinous matter. Submitting this to microscopic investigation, it was found to be a fungoid growth, from which ppores were constantly washed away bv the flowing waier. He followed up tliis discovery by a minute examina tion of the outlet ot tne sewer tnrougn which the drainage of the town flowed and his scientific zeal was rewarded by finding fungoid growths of a similar nature to those in the pump spout. In the vicinity of this outlet, the fever had also prevailed. Having cases of fever in his own family, he followed up his inauirv by a chemical analysis of water drank by the family, and found in it minute spores of the same fungus. His conclusion is a natural one, that the fever had its origin in the fungus matter taken into the system, where it ferments as yeast in beer, and poisons the blood. -J " Death to the Frotes." Writer on English wits says : Gn was sometimes paid in his own on one occasion when he pressed (n for his opinion of a speech he just delivered. 'Since you will lay opinion,' said Godwin, folding jns and leaning back in his chair fang froid, 'I really never did jnything so bad as your prose ex- tponr poetry, my aear uurran as Jerrold's wit was often exerted kind of way, amusing enough to bders, but mightily unpleasant to utt. Thus a member of nis ciuo g an air mentioned, exclaimed, always carries me away why I it "Can . nobody whistle it?' asked Jerrold. Again, after a supper of sheens' heads, an enthusiastic gen tleman exclaims, 'Well, Bheeps'' heads forever, Bay L Jerrold 'There's ego tism 1" In the beginning of the preseat cen tury the Koman Catholics in Glasgow, Scotland, and vicinity did not number 300, and these heard mass in a garret in one of the lanes of the city. At the present time the Catholio population oi Glasgow outnumbers any of the other religious bodies in the city. The in crease in other parts of Scotland i equally remarkable, being almost as wonderful as the increase in New England. The entire Catholio popula tion of Scotland is about 300,000, and is devided into three geographical distiicts, each gove:ned by a vicar. The growth is apparently owing in a great measure to immigration of Irish Catholics. "The child is father to the'man.'' " Hie," says Gumfoozleum on a bust ' the shild mush been marrid ver' young."

Knowing that you are subject to a great amount of suffering, that delicacy on your part has a strong tendency to prolong, and the longer it is neglected the more yon have to en dure and the more difficult of car your case becomes, I, aa a physician, who ia daily con sulted by scores of your sex, desire to say to yon, that I am constantly meeting with those who have been treated for their ailmnts for months without being benefited in the least, until they have become perfectly di cooraged and hare almost made up their rpinds never to take another dose of medicine, nor be tortured by any further treatment. They had rather die and have their sufferings ended than to live and suffer as they have. They say they are worn out by suffering and are only made worse by treatment. Of anything more dis -couraging,' we certainly cannot couceive, and were there no more snocestiful mode of treat ing each difficulties than that, the principles of which teach the i educing and depleting of tha vital forces of the system, when the indi cations dictate a treatment directly the reverse of the one adopted for them, their canes would be deplorable indeed. But, lady sufferers, there is a better and far more successful plan of treatment tor you ; one more in harmony with the laws and requirements of your sys tem. A harh irritating caustio treatmeut aud strong medicines will never cure you. If you would nse rational means, euct as oommon sense should dictate to every iu elligent lady, take such medicines as embody the very best invigorating tonics and nervine , compounded with special reference to your delicate system. Such a happy com! inatiou you will find in my Favorite Prescription ahich has received the loudest praise from thousands of yoar sex. Those languid tiresome sensations causing you to feel scarcely able to be on your feet or ascend a flight of stairs ; that continual drain that is sapping from your systems all your former elasticity, aud driving the bloom from your cheeks ; that continual strain upon your vital forces that renders you irritable and fret ful, may all be overcome and subdued by a persevering use of that marvelous remedy. Irregularities and obstructions to the proer workings of your systems are relieved by this mild and safe means, while periodical pains, the existence of which ia a sure indication of seiious disease that suoul not be neglected, readily yield to it, and if its use is kept np for a reasonable length of time tha special cause of these pains is permanently removed. Further light on these subjects may be ob tained from my pamphlet on diseases pecu iar to your sex, sent on receipt of two stamps. My Favorite Prescription is sold by druggists.
