Evicrt since I began studj lni medicine with Dr. Oleander Suwerm 1 Tiave been VUuiiing a littuso. Not nrr abstract hoiise, ut i ho house I hoped some day to build nnd live in. I used to make bkucLui of doors, windows and veraa .das on the margins of my Anatomy: and the old Doctor, who was very shurt Mghtod, thought I was developing a remarkable talent for drawiriir bones. recollect makinir what 1 thought was- a very fino picture of a Corinthian col umn, which 1 hoped would one day sup port my back stoop, when the Doctor, coming up behind me, slapped me on the buk and cried: "Well done,' m boy i oil done! l never saw the fmur better represented in tny.life;u i L had ptauty of time for my planning. AVhen 1 was young, phy.-ic was not the p roll' able profession it now is. Nerves were better strung and stomachs were a deal tougher. Scanimony, gam boge, mercury and opium,, with the lancet nnd the blister, either killed or cured the patient quickly and the pay wai small. . " . At tho age of twenty-five I married Phihi Ann Huttcrfoss, only child of Ezra Uuticifo.ss, M. D., deceased,- AVe set up nouseRecping in the Iluttenoss mansion, and I moved my 14 specimens," my pills, ana my powders into my dead lather in-law'.s oH'ae, which stood quite by useit niuong tho elms in tue spacious yairl. . ' ( Although I-was now. provided with a1 home, my desire to plan and build a houee increased, rather than diminished. The Uuitciioss mansion was over fifty years old. A wide hall ran through tho center of it, the rooms were largo ftnd high, and there was plenty of them, but the wh ile place lacked pieturesqueness and what U called, in colloquial slang, style. 15y the provisions of my father-in-law's will, the house could be sold only by my wife, and as Phila Ann flatly refused to part with it and was Impervi ous to argument or persuasion, I soon gave up all thoughts of building my ideal house until I should be ablotosave the money necessary for the work out of my own earnings. But three years af ter my marriage a great change occur red iu my fortunes. 1 had always had great regard for the honor of my. profession. - Patents taken out for ha,ipy combinations of drugs and all nd ertioiiig I had always despised. But I was called to treat a peculiar case f wind-colic, and triyd almost every thing in the pharmacopn'ia withoutsuc cess. The patient grew restless, and, as he was one of my best patients (some of his family being sick nearly all the while), I "did not relax my efforts, but kept on mixing pills and powders for him, uiujl I hit upon a pill tnat seemed really tho result of inspiration. So wonderful was its effect, I tried it upon all my patients, not even excepting old Jabe, Sprat, who va' laid up with a broken leg. The result was happy in every case; for, though it did not a; ways beneht, it never injured anybody, which is saying a great deal for one pill. I struggled with my prejudices and my pride for: to mo time; but at last I applied for a patent, and soon my pill Dr. Gillyflower's Favorite Pill" packed in "neat tin boxes, graced every drug store in the country. lit six months I made hiteon thousand dollars out of my pill, and then I began talking s bout a new house in earnest. I discussed the merits of a square lot and a deep lot, and exposures north, south, wt nnd west, and had the refusal of all tho unoccupied land in the corporation. My friends sent mo books on the do mestic architecture of all countries, Pat agonia not excepted, and every other day Mr. Plummet invited me into his olllco to see a plan. After much delib cration I purchased a corner lot that fated two of the finest streets in ' our town. My tastes are cosmopolitan (an Amer ican's, should be), and i decided to unite in my house the simplicity of a Greek temple and tho eleganco of an Italian villa, l'lunimet seized my idea ana woiked it up into somethingthat looked upon paper very recherche indeed. The main part of the house was as purely Greek as Girard College, lhe wing was in tho most florid Italian style, and at the exreme end of it was a square tower, capped with one of those peaked roofs which have the general efjnct of a half shut umbrella. It was, as Jog, the blacksmith, said of London, 'very architecteralooral." It was a trying time for me while the plans were difcusssed. 1 am somewhat absent-minded, and such phrases as 'hard finish," butter not oiled" ap- yuared in my prescriptions, and I told the Kev. Paul Pimpkin, who was suffer ing from poor appetite, induced by a disappointment in love, that I thought a veranda in tho Japanose stylo and Venetian blinds woula cure him. Th(H internal arrangements of the bouse 1 left entirely to Plummet. Mrs. Gillyflower remonstrated, and declared that, at least, the plan of the kitchen and pantry must bo submitted to her ; but I commanded her to be silent and attend to her sphere, as I thought it probalilo that Plummet know better than she did what was convenient and suitable for a kitchen. As soon as the walls were up, the wags about town called the hone illy flower's Pill," a name in which I have since seen a sad significance. About this time tho agents for wall paper houses began to visit me. Dado & Co. sent a man with a large wagon load of books full of samples, and for two whole days the fellow expiated on McMIXXVILLE, and w grew so tired antl, confused I agreed .to-, allow, tho '. firm, a , certain amount of money and let' thorn fix,' tho rooms to suit themselves. ' " ' " We moved into our new mar'lers In Octobor,' and before we were settled everything seemed to be entirely satis-, factory. But very soon MrsV Gillyflower informed, ma that there, was no china closet off the dining-room, and no room in the pantry for anything save a little tin. I found her complaint just, on examination; and the pantry was not only -very small, lut entirely dark, so that the gas had to bo kept burning constantly. The . kitchen, instoad of being tho roomy apartment I had sup posed any man of sense would plan, was exactly twelve feet square.' Our bed-room next made itself disagreeable. It was also in tho Italian wing, and there were so many windows and doors in it there was no place for furniture. Our bed had to stand in the middle of tho floor, in what I call a cross-cut of draughts, and my wUq and I woro snuf fling or coughing nearly all the time. As tho days grew shorter, I found the parlor was light only two hours during the afternoon, when it received a few rays from tho setting sun, It was, of course, n the Grecian Upright, and tho colonnade in front of it was so arranged that a great pillar stood in front of each window. But the most uncomfortable room in thd wholo house was my office. Mrs. Gillyflower said I would find the other rooms equally disagreeable, if I was in them as she was from morning till night; but I doubt it,-for it did seem as though 'in tho office Plummet had taxed his ingenuity to,the utmost to put everything in tho wrong place. '' ' , Our parlor walls were decorated with bottle-green paper, on which was paihtxd tho most luxuriant red hollyhocks. Our bedroom was a dark elate color, and the dosigns seemed to mo millions of gilt snakes squirming in mute agony.' ! Our dining-room was nearly all brick-red border. The little space left between the Dado and border proper was a sort of red pink and the effect of these tints suggested " a torture ' chamber to tile, rather than the eating-room of a quiet Christian family. As the other rooms in the house wore finished somewhat like these I have described, there was not a place where our old furnituro and car ptets looked well, ftnd, spite of myself, though I was deeply inlebt, t was com pelled to buy new things for everv room, not excepting tho kitchen, for Bridget threatened to leave "if she cuddont hay' a range instid of that owld cook-stove. 'Twas as owld-fashi'ncd as a hair-cloth soffy." Even our china, which was Haviland's best, looked wrong in the red dining-room, and had to be replaced by decorated porcelain. But I found that our new chairs and sofas wero all built on the right-angle plan. Instead of fitting the body, tho body must be fitted to them. As this task was very irksome to me, I or dered certain chairs and couches that I knew were comfortable to bo sent home from the auction-rooms and stored in our attic. .. . . .... Tho winter was -very severe,- and so revealed to us. the defects in our house that we began to remodel it at the first dawn of spring. Plummet assured me that I would ruin the eff ect of the Italian wing if I removed any of the windows in our bedroom ; so I had them bricked uu and left the blinds and casing un touched. He tried to dissuade me from changing the parlor ; but, as I knew the darkness was injuring the eyesight ot the entire family, I had tho window re set, so we could look' out between the pillars and a modicum of light could shine in. These changes necessitated repapering, and more long bil's from Dado & Co. As tho northwest wind seemed to be deflected from its course by the tower, and in consequence plunged down our kitchen chimney, putting out the fire and filling the house with gas, I built up the chimney eighteen feet and covered it with a hood, and thus made that chimney so prominent that from a certain point the house looked very like a gas factory. 'After the warm weather set in, I built a bay window on the south sido of the sitting room, run out the kitchen six feet and made a new pantry, and enlarged my office. When these improvements were coiUploted, I confess' my house, looked like a patient of mine, whose body is distorted and joints enlarged by inflam matory rheumatism, and I was so in debt my only salvation was in the pop ularity of my "Favorite Pill." I can not detail all my vexations with that house, for they wero legion. I lived in it till I hd spent upon it and its fur nishings about thirty-fivo thousand dol lar;, when fortunately I sold it to a man who had become a millionaire selling pigs. To be sure I on'y received half what I had expended ; but the burden of it had become so insupportable that the day I left it, and with Phila Ann and the children rode over to the old Butterfoss house, was the happiest of ny life. I felt liko dancing a jig when I went into the wide old parlor. And the office ah! what a charming place it did seem. The fragrance of aloes and rhubarb still hung about it. Every door and window was in exactly the right spot, and I can not describe the pleasure I took in again hanging up my skeletons in its roomy closets and setting up my bottles on its wide shelves. The old-fashioned things I had stored in the attic and what I could buy of my Jirogressive and art-loving neighbors urnished our house. Nothing was too nice to use or too delicate for the sun to shine on, and our friends, after laughing at us a little, said our house was tho pleasantest one in town; and they told the truth, for we had light and air, fur niture built with some regard to the curves of the human body, and really tasteful combinations of color on our walls. There is an old Btory of a flea who took up his abode in a lobster-shell, not because he needed it, but because it was finer than the dwellings of his friends, and would be good property to sell if a real lobster should come along. Somehow, the house I built always re minds me of that lobster-shell. Perhaps the man who is now in it is a real lobster and feels at home. I hope so. I never did, any more than the flea. There are a great many very crude notions afloat on the subject of what is beautiful in houses and their decorations ; and fully one-half the persons who profess to know all about it are as ignorant as so many barn-owls. I therefore sincerely pitv all people who are about to build or buy a house ; and in tho hope that I may assist to avoid possessing what is unsuitcd to their wants and tastes, to them I dedicate this brief account of what mv nfhbors call "Dr. Gillyflow er's Pill."

' ' '' J ' - The seed of many ornamental and useful trees ripen in spring, and if once planted will produce young trees by fall, that will safely pass the winter. The scarlet maple, for instance, ripens its seed late in May. If planted at once, they would grow to a height of at least eighteen inches by fall."-A silver maple wdl grow In four years, from seed, large enough to' make considerable ' shade. Such seedliogs maybe raised by any body, orr bought of the nurseryman for two dollars por thousand. , Still, thou sands of well-to-do farmers have no trees either for shade, ornament or shelter. , Nothing less than regular feeding for sheep, as well as cattle, will answer the turn of the sagacious farmer. They are carrying, heavy fleeces and lambs now, and should be looked after with a tender care. 1 In spite of dogs, sheep are a profitable kind of1 stock to carry on a farm. Their fleece and manure pay all their exponses, while the lamb and mutton taken to market furnish clear profit. And it has bocn demon strated that the farmer can secure this profit in the face of all the loose dog laws which permit all the dogs to run through without getting caught. Timely Test of Seeds. tfjRTAiuLT one of the most important elements of success in the growing of a crop is the soundness of the seed. It old, or in part old, tho set of piants may be too thin for the possibility of a good crop. Or tho weak plants themselves may be so further weakened by the ad verse, weather incident to the planting season as .to grow too slowly for pro ductive results. Koplanting rarely suc ceeds, and never can succeed fully with plants that require an earjy start, either to mature before hot weather, or before frost;, and this makes the advarrre test ing of any seeds that are not Known as suredly to be fresh and heavy' an actuat essential. It is an interesting and in structive experiment for the young peo ple of a family. Along one of tho streets ol uioucester, England, an lniana port upon the Severn, a few years ago, a range of greenhouses was seen flush with the pavement, ineyaweiongea to an important ; nursery and seed store in the city, and the neat and soraewnat architectural front range displayed specimens of the salable plants, etc., of the season. Between these were a great many of the common clayware flower pot saucers in pairs, one nesting in the other tho lower one containing water, which kept the upper or inner one wet through. In this latter there were scat tered from twenty to fifty seeds, which, if large, were covered with a piece of damp felt or moss, although the humid, gtill air of the glass x building slightly warmed by a hot-water pipe seemea sufficient for the germination of all seeds capable of it in that temperature. A boy was counting and recording the proportion of success in each case, and putting still other sorts on trial. ine firm made this open display of their care, probably, as an assurance to the public that they mot their plodgos iu re gard to warranted soundness of seeds fpnt out. Below the stage which car ried the seeds and plants was another wider spread of potatoes, hardening in tho light, and preparing a start in ger mination before being set in tne ground. This is a very common practice abroad, and apparently a very useful one, both as regards earliness and certainty of the future crops. New York Tribune. Ice-coated Fruit-trees. Oke of tho wrong ideas which has a very general lodgment among the opin ions and beliefs of orchardists, and which keeps its place in the face of the flood of light that the press is now throwing upon all the theory and praotice of the farm, is that of supposing that a ooating of ice or of hoar-frost on the branches and twigs of trees is destructive to them or their fruit-buds. It is, on the con trary, preservative, unless its weight is so great as to cause breakage. Hoar frost is dew, freezing, crystallizing as it condenses : and whenever it occars the air is warmer than the objects which re ceive the condensation, and is at the same time saturated with moisture which it deposits on cooler surfaces. Now plants in general enjoy moist air, and dryness of tho air is by far the most fre quent cause of their death ; and it is when the sky is dry and clear that heat radiates freely from every surface into space, and during tho long cleaf n?jhts of winter very much more heat is lost than -the short days and dim sunshine enable plants, etc., to absorb. Blasts from colder districts are dry as well as cold, and attack the life of plants by both weapons. Rural New Yorker. Missouri, Arkansas & (Southern. The St. Louis Republican has ob. fained from James Dun, Chief Engineer oi tne nc. LOuis aan rrancisco nau rOad, some interesting information re garding the new extension of his road, projected and in progress of construc tion, from Pierce City to Dallas, Tex. : The line is to pass through the terri tory of tho Choctaw Nation.. Secretary Schurz, of the' Interior Department at Washington, holds that it is necessary for the railroad company to obtain the right of way across tho Indian reserva tions from Congress, as well as from the Choctaw Nation. ; The Choctaws are willing to grant such right of way, and tho Missouri legislature will memorialize Congress to pass a bill giving the rail road tho privilogo asked for. The Sen ate at Jefferson City has already passed a ' concurrent resolution to that effbet, and it will no doubt be concurred in by the Lower House, as the advantages of the proposed line to Missouri is not a question of dispute." It requires no money , appropriations or subsidy , of lands. All the railroad company asks is the right of way, and they are ready and willing to pay tho Indians lor ali the material used . in construction. The projected lino will strike the corner of the Choctaw- Nation! at Fort Smith and fol low up the Poteau Creek Valley, then go down the Kiminshi Valley to the Red Kiver, passing through or near Spencer Academy and bcuiiyvulo, in the (Jboo taw Territory. Tho people of the Na tion are intelligent, and many well edu cated. They do not appear to be adverse to the progress of, civilization, and do not object to the construction of rail roads in their country. :" From the. Red River the road will pass into Texas, and go through Paris to Dallas, where it will connect with the Houston & Texas Cen tral Railway system. : i. " . ; The road is already constructed and irt operation from Plymouth, near Pierce City, to Seligman, on the Missouri and Arkansas border, where the trains con nect with daily-stages for Eureka Springs, Bentonville, Fayetteville, and Fort Smith, Ark. ' ' :t: n .- i The road is already under contract south of Fayettevillo, Ark., and surveys are made, or are being made, to the Arkansas River at Van Buren. Mr. Dun tas four parties in,thiield, three of them making preliminary surveys, and one locating the track sonth of Boston Mountains. . , , ,,. Where tho road crosses the latter mountains tho elevation is 1,900 feet above the sea. A tunnel 1,400 feet in length will be constructed- through the Boston range at Woolum's Gap, which will cost about $70,000, and, including tho tunnel, with about six miles of heavy grade on the south side Of the mountain, the estimated cost is $76,000 , per mile. Starting from Pierce City, the length of the road will be 135 miles 1 to Fort 'Smiih, and from. Fort Smith through the Indian Territory to Paris, Tex., the distance will bo 135 miles, making it the shortest route between St. Louis and Dallas. ,. . ' ... . The consumption of malt Honor in this country has increased over 100 per cent, in ten rears. "Dunne 1880." says the Jletater, the orf an of the brew ers, "taxes were paid on .13,874,000 barrels, or 414.000,000 gallons. - This is equivalent to about 150 mugs for every man, woman and child in the country Leaving out the females and children, this vast quantity represents 600 glasses a year for each male over 21 years old in tho United States. When we consid er the very large number of adult males who drink no beer at all, and the other host who partake of it only in the most moderate manner and at more or less protracted intervals, it is evident that some other Americans must drink good deal. '! At five cents a glass this beer manufacture of 1880 brought $375, 000,000, or about $7.50 per capita for every man, woman and child. ' This is a quarter more than the total expense of runningtho United States Government."

No one should engage in a business for which he has a dislike and at which he most ' compel himself to work, i All employment should be fdeasurablo, and when, from any cause, t is otherwise it should bo stopped;' No one should work at anything when all the foelings rise up in rebellion against it, : Such, proceeding is a waste of vitality, and continued efforts under such conditions are never . successful. The mind and body must work in har mony in order to produce good results. Dr. Footers Health Monthly for Febru ary.- 1 . . , Muscatine Journal. - . . ', Two Days' Work.
