Many a deluded child has been cured of a cold by this means: Take a cup of brown srfgar nnd put it in saucepan to make candy, but instead of adding water in which to dissolve tlio sugar, put in a little tea made by steep ing thoronghwort. J Ins will impart a bitter taste, which is not unpleasant to the child after the lirst mouthful, nnd is really a good remedy for a "tickling in the throat." To make nn cxcollent soup allow four pounds of beef to two and a hall quarts of water, ono small onion, ono carrot, aud a small head of celery. Let these boil for four or live hours. Three quarters of an hour before dinner strain this soup, salt it, and add a heaping tea cupful of macaroni, broken in bits; let this boil slowly. Add any other season ing you like: for soma ta-tes a pinch ol curry powder improves it. -A'.

Corn-Cobs as Find. For several years horo has been talk nbfmt farmers' raising their fuel on their own farms. Prairie grass has been bound in tiirht roils, and used tor grist and llouring mills; cornstalks "al havo, in severe weather, been eon sidcrablv used as fuel, and give excel cut heat. What is required is some liquid sub stance, like tar, in which to din some ol tho strongest stalks, and putt heso in tho centers ot bundles a toot thick and two feet long. 'I ho stalks dipped in bitu men adhere to the others, and all aro pressed tightlv together, and bound in three place with "lino 'wire. The sec- lions aro set tip vertically in the center of largo Russia iron stoves. Lurning only on tho surface, a section of this fuel will last four hours. When tho surface is covered with ashes, it can not burn; but gently jog it till the ashes fall, and it burns again, anil so on, and am convinced fuel prepared in this. or some equivalent manner, will some day be in universal Use. .Meanwhile, we have corn cobs. Theu is a very important consideration iu favor of home-raised fuel having tho qualities of woody liber, and not emit ting unwholesonio gases as do tho vari ous grades of sott coal aoumianuv mined in various parts of Iowa, and o-i'iuTulK' in iwa in f:ietnries. hotels Hnd nouses throughout the northern Missis sippi Valley. Indeed, tho soft coals are so repugnant to health and comfort that most ot the well to-do and intelligent bus:ness men and fanners burn hard coal, at double cost, contending that tbe superior steadiness of the heat, and the greater healthfulnoss of tho apart ments), moro than eompensat for the price. As a summer, or cooking find, corn cobs have the decided advantage, over either hard coal or soft, that when a hot lire is required in quick time, it can be made with rorn-cobs in one-fourth of tho time required with soft coal, the dif ference between hard coal and. soft bo !n? about a great. : Moreover, corn oohs afford fuel that is very clean to handle, aud requires no breaking or nammering 10 u u ior uso; and being of nearly , uaitorm sIkd, ttio heat can be regulated to almost any required degree, in stoves of good si.o. It most be added that tho corn-cobs supplied by shelling tho Immense ouan titles of corn consumed in thousands of Northwestern towns about one I bird of all that is raised are now all used for fuel by the townspeople themselves, in preference, to the coal they havo near at j nana. tor. uoumry uciuu;mai.
