Various elegant preparations have superseded the coarse unguent* and salves of former tiroes. Tt would he impossible iu our limited space to give a just idea of the wonderful im provements that have been made in this branch of pharmacy. Perhaps one of the most notable improvements . is the preparation of an animal fat, called Innoline, which is now used as the basis of a large number of oint ments. Unlike lard, which has generally been employed for this purpose, it never turns rancid; and it lias the valuable property of being readily absorbed by the skin, and penetrating with friction to its deeper layers; therefore, it becomes a most efficient vehicle for conveying medicines through the skfu. When mixed with mercury and rubbed into the pores, it has caused the peculiar metallic taste of the drug to be perceptible in the mouth three minutes after its applica tion. Tn its impure crude form, this fat was known to the ancient Greeks, and employed by them in medicine, being extracted from the wool of sheep. The chemist has now purified it, and made it one of the most useful agents that we possess for applying medicines to the skin.—Chambers's Journal. Aluminum Watches. The latest fad of the Parisian swells is the aluminum timepiece. They are very light in weight, but a trifle more than the works. The cases are in a dull black color—very effectivf;. Some are open faced, some are open in a small three-quarter-inch disk in the center, with small gilt hands on the black face of the watch, but they are in all sorts of inlaid decoration in colorings, and the best of it is they are very reasonable in price. It is the custom at the gay capital for the gentry to carry this timepiece in the right hand trousers pocket along with the keys, coin, matchbox and other paraphernalia of the mascu line pocket. It is, moreover, the wont of the owners to rush the hand down in the pocket with great show of im perturbability and bring forth the watch, of which the material is un scratchable, from among the other articles, glance at the time and care lessly replace it with an air of cer tainty in its infallibility.—Clothier and Furnisher. A NO-TO-BAC MIRACLE. PHYSICAL PERFECTION PREVENTED IIY THE USE OF TOBACCO. Ail Old Timor nt Twcntj-thrcc Yonrn'To liaceo f'ilewliiu antl ritnokinn Curcil, and Oaing Twenty I'ountlH In Thirty Oayn. LAKE GENEVA, Wis., Jul}* 21 —Special.— The ladles of our beautiful little town are making ail interesting and exoiting time for tobacco-using husbands, since the Injurious effects of tobacco and the ease with which it can be cured by a preparation called No- To-Bac. have been so plainly demonstrated by the euro of Mr. F C. Waite. In a written statement he says : "I smoked and chewed tobacco for twenty-three years, and I am sure that my case was one of the worst In this part ofthe country. Even aftor I went to bed at night, if I woke up I wonld want to ehe r . or smoke. It was not ouly killing me but my wifo was also ailing from the in jurious effects. Two boxes of No-To-Bac cured me, and I have no more desire for to bacco than I have to jump out of the win dow. I have gained twenty pounds in thirty days, my wifo is well, and we are Indeed both happy to say that No-To-Bac is truly 'worth its weight in gold' to us." The cure and improvement in Mr. Waite's case is looked upon as a miraole—ln fact, it is the talk of the town and county, and it Is estimated that over a thousand tobacco users will be using No-To-Bac within a few weeks. The peculiarity about No-To-Bac as a patent medicine is that the makers, the Sterling Remedy Company. No. 45 Randolph street, Chicago, absolutely guarantee the use of three boxes to cure or refund the money, and the cost. *2.50, is so trilling as compared with the expensive and unneces sary use of tobacco that tobacco-using hus bands havo no good excuse to offer when their wives insist upon taking No-To-Bao and getting results in the way of pure, sweet breath, wonderful improvement in their mental and physical condition, with a prac tical revitallzation of their nlcotized nerves.

One of the best stimulants that can be given to pot plants, especially palms and ferns, is soot water. Tie a quantity of soot iu a course muslin bag, attaching a heavy stone to it, so that it will sink; let this soak for sev eral days iu a tub of water and then let it stand a day or two until quite clear. One quart of soot to seven gal lons of water is quite sufficient. It renders the foliage more vivid, as well as stimulating growth. Detroit Faee Press. EXPERIMENTS IN KEEPING EGIiS. The New York experiment station has been experimenting in keeping eggs. The eggs were all wiped when fresh, with a rag saturated with some antiseptic and packed tightly in salt, bran, eto. Eggs packed during April and May with salt, and which had been wiped out with cottonseed oil, to which had been added boric acid, kept from four to five months with a loss of nearly one-third, the quality of those saved not being good. Those packed in bran, after the same pre liminary handling, were all spoiled after four months. Eggs packed in salt during March and April, after wiping with vaseline, to which salicy lic acid had been added, kept four or five months without loss, the quality after four months being mueh superior to ordinary. Temperature of each box varied little from sixty degrees Fahrenheit, and each box was turned over once every two days. Little dif ference was observed in the keeping of the fertile and unfertile eggs, and no difference was noticeable in the keeping qualities of eggs from different fowls or from those on different rations. —Orange Judd Farmer. THE MILK TEST. 11l practice it is found that the Bab cock test must be expanded in applica tion so as to cover five things : The apparatus, the acid, the sample the manipulation, the operator. These five things include everything pertain ing to the test as a machine, the test as an operation, and the tester. lowa leads her sister States in enacting a law requiring those who buy milk by the test to make sure that the test bot tles are correctly calibrated and grad uated. As the invention is not patent ed anyone can make the apparatus, and the test bottles have been thrown upon the market with no guarantee that they are correct. Patrons have been condemned for selling inferior milk with no evidence against them but the test bottle and no guarantee that the test bottle itself was correct. The new law makes it imperative that each creameryman and all persons testing milk for others, shall procure of the Dairy Commissioner a certified test bottle and the Dairy Commissioner is required to furnish one bottie cer tified to be correct, at cost price. In case of controversy, the one who makes the test has the burden of proof. He must prove his test to be correct, and cannot secure conviction otherwise. This is right. Before this it was a one-sided affair. One party did all the testing; the other was helpless unless he could prove fraud. Now the per son making the charge must support it with evidence and if the evideuce is the milk test he must substantiate the accuracy of his test. —Orange Judd Farmer. HOW TO MAKE A SELF-CLE A VIVO CISTERN. Soft water for washing purposes is a necessity. To meet this necessity cisterns of various kinds are built, but the ilust lodging on the roof, to gether with dead leaves, and various substances whirled about by tho wind, will be carried by the water into the cistern. Unless it is frequently cleaned, this l'ouls the water and gives it a bad odor. The following is a de scription of a plan for a cistern so ar ranged as to avoid thisdifficulty. The overflow pipe, instead of simply entering the cistern at the sur face of tho water iu the usual way, contiuues down the inner surface and opens near the bottom. Then, when ever the cistern tills with water ami overflows, the surplus enters the dis charge pipe at the bottom, thus carry ing off whatever sediment may have beeii deposited. As the substances that are washed from the roof iuto the cistern always settle gradually to the bottom, each hard raiu that fills it to overflowing forces them into the discharge pip" and carrion them off to the drain Such foul sediment forms a good Ucst for disease geriin. Where the ground is of tlrm texture it is not liecossarv to brick Up the sides, but the cement may be laid directly on the earth, Begin bv laying out a fir cle about a foot larger across than the inteuded size of the cistern.

When all is complete place a crib of plank over tho man-hole, through which it may be entered by means of a small ladder; then cover with earth, rounding it well up. If a pump is used tho suction should be furnished with a strainer, and should reach to within a foot of the bottom of oistern. Where a cis tern can be built directly under the kitchen it is very convenient to con nect it with a pump ovor the kitchen sink. The capaoity of a citern may be approximately ascertained by al lowing seven gallons to the cubic foot. Or, if it is round, multiply the diame ter by the average depth, in feet, and the product by five and one-half. The result will be the capacity in gal lons.—American Agriculturist. FARM AND GARDEN NOTES. Slow milking is injurious to the cow. Milk rapidly. The Pekin is generally esteemed the most profitable variety of duck. Lead a cow rather than drive her. Gentleness should be the watchword to the dairy stable. The aim in breeding should be to wards a higher standard in order to compensate for the deterioration in prices. Make up your mind to have better roads thiß summer between your farm and the station from which you do your shipping. It is very certain that the butter must come from the food and that the better the food the more butter a cow will give. Experience has shown that corn meal is the best food for rich milk. The man who makes it a rule to milk his cows in the stable is the one who has the least trouble with them. It takes but a minute to put them in and turn them out, and this time is well spent. Turkeys, as a rule, do best to have their own way in nesting, setting and caring for their young, but the older ones are likely to become so gentle and obedient as to conform cheerfully to the feeder's plan. The cracking of the fruit of pears, observed oftentimes in the Flemish Beauty and the White Doyenne, is caused by a fungus. Spraying, asnow generally practiced, will make an end of this fungus, no doubt. For a small lawn the best invigor ator is a gill of nitrate of soda once a week in a pail of water, app'ied with a watering pot, over an area of 100 square feet. The grass will quickly respond to such treatment. When the sheep goto pasture, a place should be provided for the lambs in which they can enter and get a lit tle grain food. This helps them very much and will add fully a fourth to their growth during the summer. Don't overload young horses. If there is a heavy load to be hauled use the older animals, remembering that the bono and muscle are not properly developed and set until after the horse has attained his sixth year. The head of the gander is somewhat coarser than that of the goose and his cry is harsher. There is no difference in the form or plumage of the two sexes, and, as u rule, the gander is distinguished only by his pugnacity. By hurdling and letting the stock eat down a portion of the field at a time, pasture can be made togo further than by tho common method. This plan can be followed with sheep and hogs without very much extra labor. When a mare refuses to dry or caress her offspring a little flour or meal sprinkled upon it will sometimes attract her kindly to it, but should thiß fail the foal must be dried by rub bing with soft flannel and induce! to take milk. In raising turkeys this year remem ber that the big ones are 110 longer iu demand, and can only be sold at a re duction Birds ranging from ten to fifteeu pounds, at five months, are the kind wanted. Twelve pounds is a good weight and a popular size. If you have not a sufficient number of sows, or cows or mares to pay for keepiug a thoroughbred male yourself, get Home of your neighbors to join you in the purchase of one. A joint owner ship of this sort is better than to be all the time paying out large service fees. The meal of whole ears of corn is quite as digestible as that of the ground grain if it is tiucly ground and fed with cut hay. About si* quarts a day of this meal is sufficient for an or dinary cow, but that may be increased as the cow may be found to eat and digest it usefully. There is no farm so small but that live stock of some sort could add to the profit derived from it. If you c.iu do uothing more, try a single dairy cow as an experiment. Very often on - cow well kept pays much better than a half iloZeu indiffereutly fed and cared for. The stockman who feeds a ton if brau to his work horse* will, if all his manure, solid anil liquid, is saved, have Bl'J 4"i worth of fertility m the manure. If the sauie is fed to grow ing stock ha will have about uinety per cent, of the fertility, aud to a dairy cow more thau seventy-five per c.'llt If you are growing clover for seed, you can predispose the plant toward seed production bv pasturing sheep upon the field.

HOUSEHOLD AFFAIRS. WATOINO AND fILBANTWa GLOVES. The so-called washing gloves are an excellen, choice for utility purposes all summer, as they can be cleaned once and again by washing them in water that is more than warm, but not scalding hot, rising a bit of pure white soap in the process. It is best to wash them upon the hands, as the chamois is less likely to shrink in drying. Wash and then rinse in clear water, and dry by rubbing with a Turkish or other soft, rough towel. For kid gloves of light color, that nre but slightly soiled, but not stained, there is no better mode of freshening than to wind a bit of oiled silk around the finger, rubbing vigorously to remove nil traces of the mar. Any woman who tests this easy way of cleaning kid gloves will be sure to keep thereafter a strip of silk in her possession. A quarter or even an eighth of a yard is enough to purchase at once, as in fancy dry goods houses, where it is sold, it is kept moist in a large roll and is thus very pliable. Moisten the silk, however, when using. —New York Evening Post. APRONS. Much may bo said of tho indispens able article known as apron, viewing it from the ornamental as well as use ful point. The scope of the latter is great, inoluding the honsokeeper, nurse, waitress, dressmaker and the olerk, the various styles of each being unique and pretty. The housekeeper's apron is generally of lawn, nainsook or dimity, of two thirds length and trimmed with a hem four inches deep, surmounted by tucks. Feather stitching may be added either in tlax or cotton, or the ready-made may be bought by the pieco of twelve yards. The belt may be feather stitohed. A square pocket laid in a double box-plait on the right side is indispensable, and may be finished by a dainty little bow of the same material. For the nurse and waitress, the aprons are usually of lawn or cambric, and the plainer the better. Both aie sufficiently full to almost meet at tho back, and in length reach nearly to the bottom of the skirt. Sometimes embroidery is put between the tucks that surmount the hem. Striped and checked ginghams are relegated to the kitchen. These are made up in two breadths, simply hemmed and with a belt and string of tho goods. Those trimmed with a bias band of the goods are a little more ornamental. Aprons of this sort are excellent for wear when sew ing. The sewing apron proper has a gored front and side pieces in one piece style, the latter meeting at tha back after forming a curve below the waist line, and fastening with one button. The waist or bib is fitted with two darts and the gored side seam, with two long tabs passing to the back of the neck, where they but ton. The large pocket is placed at a convenient distance for the hands in the outer front, ami stitched down the middle to form two divisions.—Home and Farm. RECIPES. Lobster Cutlets—Mince a pound of lobster small (the canned may be used), season with salt, white pepper, two ounces of melted butter, two beaten eggs and enough fine, sifted breadcrumbs to make it cling togeth er. Shape in the form of cutlets; dip in crumbs, then in egg and again in crumbs, and fry in hot drippings. These are very palatable with green peas or tomato sauce. Chopped Omelet and Egg—Havo your round steak chopped very fino and freed from skin aud sinews; sea son with salt, cayenne and minoed parsley aud onion (a teaspoonful of each of the two latter to a pound of steak), add the beaten yolk of an egg, and make iuto small flat cakes. Fry in drippings uutil cooked through and browned on both sides; pour over the gravy, and crown each with a poached eg*?- Potato Omelet—Take a pint of cold mashed potatoes aud heat over the Are with two tablespoousful of sweet cream, beating with a fork until smooth aud light. Add four beaten egg?, pepper, salt aud a little nutmeg, ami press through a sieve ; beat one tablespoonful of butter iu a saucepan and cook half of this mixture like an omelet. It is delightful with bacon or ham cut iu thin rashers aud fried crisp. Spanish Ragout—Fry in butter a minced Spanish onion or au equal amount of white onions; add a green pepper minced line without the seeds, and sprinkle these over six large to matoes that have been sliced aud fried. Put a poached egg for each person on top aud pour around a cream sauce, made by adding cream or milk thick- i eued with flour to the butter, iu the j pan iu which the tomatoes were fried. There is no uiore delightful hot-weath er appetizer thau this. Shrimp Salad—Shrimp salad is a j useful aud pretty dish. Shell a suffi cient quantity of freshly broiled prawns, taking caro to preserve the coral, which put aside for garnishing I preseutly. Pile up the prawns in the j ceutre of a dish, pour over them a j thick mayouuaisM sauce iu which a ] sheet of gelatine has been dissolved. This causes it tu adhere better. Round the base of the pyramid, arrange a | ring of capers, next these a riug of yolk of egg which has beeu rubbed through a sieve, theu a riug of chopped white of egg. Garnish with ■prays of chervil aud spriukle the top of the pyramid with the coral. Shrimp, lobster or remains of eold ■allium cau be utilued iu this way. A Vrrjr Curious Discovery.

Professor Colbert explains the origin of great storms that move across our \ country from the Rocky Mountains to the Atlantic seaboord on this theory: The moist air from the Pacific, driven up the west slope of the Rock ies by the rotation of the earth, ie suddenly deprived of its moisture in cooler altitude. This drying of th« air causes a change in specific gravity, and the disturbance produced at ouc« results in a slight rotary current. The revolving mass of air moves on ward toward the east, its motion ami ' size constantly increased by the suck ing in of warm south winds on its for ward edge. These currents from the south drop their moisture from con tact with the colder revolving storm, and the sudden lightening of the ail by the dropping of its moisture works like a stream on a mill wheel. Thus the real cann» of our great storms lie in the conditions met by these traveling whirlwinds in theii regular journey across the country. If they are cold enough and meet witb enough moist, hot air in their cotirst they are set spinning with a velocity that makes a cyclonic storm. —Chicago Journal. Men and Women With Horns.

Until the early part of the eight eenth century, the famous Golconda and other mines of India furnished the world's diamonds, but after that time for a long period the mines of Brazil became the great producers. Both localities are now nearly ex hausted. Since the discovery of dia monds in South Africa in 1867, that region has produced more diamonds than the whole world during the two centuries preceding, the total yield of these mines being estimated at some 40,000,000 carats or about eight tons, the aggregate value of the uncut stones being more than 82i>0,000,000. In single years the African yield has exceeded 3,000,000 carats. Not more than eight per cent, of this product it is stated can be considered of the first water; about twelve per cent, is of thr second water and twenty -ftve per cent, is of V,Y»c Vuhd water, while the remainder is boart which is crusted to powder and used for cutting hard substances. This boart is distinct from the uncrystalline carbonado which is a cutting agent several times more valuable as obtained from the Brazil ian mines. Diamonds have been found also in the Urals and in Australia while a few small crystals have been picked up in different parts of the United States. A locality in New South Wales is reported to have yield ed 12,000 diamonds of which the largest have been cut into gems, weighing 3J- and three carats respec tively.—Atlanta Constitution.
