A Wrestle with Niagara.
I wa standing at) mt thirty or forty
yard in advanra of the Clifton, that is.
tairty or forty yanvg nearer the horse-shoe
along the brink of the rocks, and opposite
the American 1M1. The ground mxx-i h ve
be-n about the same height as the opposite
fan, but, owiug to the immense hill down
which, the rapids rash, it was possible to
distinguish any object of the size of
boat a considerable distance above the fall,
so th.t, now as it was pointed oat to me, I
saw in the middle of the rapids, a huge log
of wood, the trunk of a tree, which had
lodged theie some years before, and upon
it a black speck. This, after some obser
vation, I perceived to move. It was a nun.
Tea, he and his two companions had, on
the previous night, been rowing about
some distance above the fall. By some
means or other they had ventured too near
the rapids, had lost all command of their
boat, and had been hurried away to de
struction It was supposed that about half
a mile above the fall the boat had been up
set, and, with Wo wretched men still cling
ing to it, weat over the fall at about nine
or ten oVlock at night, while the third
man vras driven against this log of wood,
climbed upon i', and sat astride of it
through the darkness of the night, amid
the roar, the turmoil, and the dashing
spray of the rapids.
I crossed the river, ascended the rock by
the railway, and hurried to the spot, where
found him so near that I couid almost
distinguish his countenance. He was then
lying along the log, grasping it with both
arms, and appeared exhausted to the last
degree. He was evidently as wet, from
the spray, as though he had been standing
under water. By this time people were as
itembling, and different plans for his rescue
were proposed and discussed on all aides ;
already, indeed, one effort had been made.
A small boat had been firmly lashed to a
stroDg cable, and dropped down to him
from the bridge, which crossed the rapid
between the mainland and Goat Island,
about sixty yards above the log.
This boat had proceeded a few yards in
safety, was Tipset, spun round like a piece
of cork it the end of a thread by the force
of te water, which finally snapped the
cuoie in two, and the boat disappeared
over the fklL
But now a dispatch had been sent to
Buffalo (a distance of little more than
twenty miles) by electric telegraph, desir
ing that a life-boat should be sent by the
first train, 9 :30 a. m and this in time ar
rived, borne on the shoulders of about
twenty men, and a splendid boat she was,
large, built entirely of sheet iron, with
airtight chambers ; a boat that could not
' sink She was girt round with strong
ropes, and two new two inch cables
brought with her. All this arrangement
naturally took up much time, and the poor
wretch's impatunce eemed extreme, so
that it was though- advisable to let him
know what was g ring on. This was done
' by means of a sheet, upon which was
xwritteu in large letters in Dutch (his na
tive language). " The life-boat is comins."
He stMia up. iok-d intently for a minute,
and then uod ed his head. When the
b.t was at last launched, the excitement
was intense Two cables, each held by
mmy men, were let down from either
e d of the bridge, so that they might have
Mmrt command in directing the course of
ti e boat down the river. She seemed
)! ro'lv to done npon the surlace of the
water like cork.
i h ia i i consist) of a nu nbv of small
falls distributed unev nly over all the parts
of the river, so that 'here are thousands
of cross currents, eddies, an-1 whirlpools,
which it would be utterly impossible to
avoid, and in which lies the daDger of
transit for any boat between the bridge
and the lo. The life-boai's course was
steady at first: she arrived at the first fall,
she trippe-1 up anil swung round with a
rush, but continued her course safely, only
halt filled with water Aeain she descended
with safrty, but at length approaching the
log she became unmanageable, swinging
ciuier way wiin immense torce,
spinning completely over, and finally
dashing against the log with such vio
lence that I fully expected the whole
thing, man and all, to have been dislodged
and homed down the rapid. But, no, it
stood firm the boat had reached its des
tination. Yet, alas! how useless was its
position It lay completely on its side
aboy-e the log, and with its hollow inside
directed toward the bridge, played upon
by the whole force of the current, which
fixed its keel nrmlv aeainst the lop- Tt
seemed immovable. The man himself
climbed toward it, and in Tain tried to
pull, lift or shake the boat; nor was it
moved until both cables being brought to
vuc biuc ui uic river, uy me unitea torce
of fifty or sixty men she was dislodged
and swung down the rapid upside-down,
finally pitching headlong beneath an eddy,
entangling one of her cables on the rocks.
and there lying beneath a heavy fall of
water, until, in tne course ot the da , one
of the cables being broken by the efforts
of the men to dislodge her, and the other
by the sheer force of the current, she
went over the falls the second sacrifice to
the poor fellow, who still clung to the log
swayed between hope and fear. The loss
of this boat seemed a great blow to him,
and he appeared, as far as we could judge
at a distance, at times to give way to the
Utmost despair. A third boat was now
brought wooden, very long and flat bot
tomed. Its passage was most fortunate,
and as she floated down, even alongside of
the log without accident, hope beamed in
every countenance, and we all felt the
man might be saved. Hope also had re
vived in him. He stood for some time
tipon the log making signals to those who
directed the boat.
He now eagerly, srized her, drew her
towards him, jumped into her, and made
sighs to them to draw him up. This was
commenced, but some of the tackle had
caught, and it was deemed necessary to
let it loose for an instant. This was
done; the boat floated a few feet down
the rapid, swung round the lower end of
tne log, entangling the cable beneath it,
and there remained immovably fixed.
Once more the poor fellow's work began.
He drew off one of his boots and baled
the boat, he pushed at the log, climbed
upon it, axd used every possible exenion
to move the boat, but in vain! n hour
was spent in these fruitless offorts an
hour of terrible suspense to all who be
held him. He worked well, for he worked
for his life. Three months after, this
boat retained its position, nor will it move
until the rocks grind its cable in two, or
the water tear it piecemeal into shreds.
Another plan must be deviled, and this,
with American promptitude, was soon
done. A rxft of from twenty to thirty
feet long and five feet broad was knocked
together with amazing rapidity. It e in
sisted of two stout poles,' made fast, five
feet asunder, by nailing four or five pieces
of two inch board at ea h extremity; thus
the machine consisted of a sort of skeleton
rart with a i-mall stage at either end. On
one of these stages that to which the ca
bles (of which there were two) were
lashed was tightly fixed a large empty
cask, for the sake of its buoyancy, on the
other a complete network of cords, to
which the man was to lash himself; also a
tin can of refreshments, he having taken
nothing since the evening before ; thrte or
four similar cans, by the way, had been let
down to him already, att-ched to strong
pieces of new line, but the cords had in
wry instance been snapped, and the food
The raft was finished, launched, and
safely let down to the log. The poor fel
low committed himself to its care, he
lashed his legs firmly, and then signalled
to draw him up ; thus for the second time
the ropes had begun to be drawn up, the
raft advanced under the first pull, but its
head owing to the great light cask, dipped
beneath it, and as the raft still advanced,
the water broke over it to such a depth
that the man was obliged t raise himself
npon all fours, keeping his chin well
elevated, to avoid being drowned. We
expected at every pull to see his head go
under, but alas ! thy pulled in vain, for
the front of the raft, pressed down by the
weight of falling water, had come in con
tact with a rock, and would not advance.
The ropes were slackened, she fell back,
but again hitched in her return. It was
then determined to let her swing to
another part of the rapid, where the
stream did not appear so impassable.
This was done, and a second attempt to
draw it up was made, half-way between
the log and the opposite shore (a small if
Jand). Thifljilso failed from the same
cause, therefore it was proposed to en
deavor to let the raft float down and swing
round upon the island This was com
menced, but with the old result, the cable
was caught in the rocks, and the raft re
mained stationary. However, she was
floating -easily, and the poor fellow could
.Early in the day for the afternoon was
now far advanced, one of the large ferry
boats (built expressly for crossing beneath
the falls) had been brought up, but had
lain idle. This was now DUt into requisi
tion, and nobly she rode down toward the
raft, whilst in breathless silence we all
watched her as she dipped at the various
falls, and each tinra recovered herself. I
shuddered as she was launched, for I began
to see that the man could not be saved by
a boat ; a boat never could return against
a rapid, however well able to float aown
it. No sooner would her bow come into
contact with a fall than it would dip, fill,
and spin round, as did the first skiff which
was lost
The poor fellow himself was getting im
patient visibly so. He untied his lash
ings, stood upright upon the raft, eagerly
wailing to seize the boat, and jump into
her. She had but one more fall to pass,
and that fall was situated just above
where he stood ; she paused at the brink
of it, swung down it like lightning, and,
as he leaned forward to seize her, she rose
on the returning wave, struck him in the
chest, and he struggled hopelessly in the
overwhelming torrent.
The exclamation of horror, for it was not
a cry, which burst from the thousands who
by this time were assembled, I shall never
forget, nor the breathless silence with
which we watched him, fighting with the
waters as they hurried him along upright,
waving both arms above his head. We
lost sight of him at intervals, yet azain and
again he reappeared, and I thought honrs
must have passed in lieu of one brisf half
mlnute. But the end came at last; once
more I saw his arms wildly waved above
his head, and. in. an instant, the crowd
turned from the spot in dead silence. The
man was lost. All the rear liouna. .
Anecdotes of a Benevolent Wit.
The New England Historical and Gtnea
loaical Reuuter for July has a biographical
account ot Lucius Manlius Sargent, one of
the wits of the earlier part of this century,
and the following good stones are told :
He delighted to do good in secret, but
he was no friend to laziness. A stout,
robust fellow, whom he well knew as a
lounger, on a certain New lean Day call
ed him up very early in the morning. He
dressed in haste and hurried to the parlor.
The beggar cried : " A happy New Year
to you, sir. JUr. bargent went to the
closet and got a piece of gingerbread, and
gave it to him, saying : " Call on me this
time next year and I'll give you another
Another anecdote related to his son by
the celebrated William Gray in substance
was a follows : Not long since, before
Mr Sargent s decease, in looking over and
adjusting his pa, .era, he found a large num
ber of debts and notes due him from poor
men, principally" fishermen. Ha tied them
up in a bundle, and on the label wrote
this memorandum: " Notes, due bills,
and accounts against sundry persons along
shore. Some of them may be got by suit
or severe dunning ; but the people are
poor ; most of them have had fisherman's
Iuck. My children will do as tney tninx
best Perhaps they will think with me,
that it is best to burn the package enure.
A month after the decease the sons met
in the counting room of the elder brother,
who administered on the estate. He pro
duced this package, read the inscription,
and inquired what should be done with it.
The next oldest brother, with tears in his
eves, point d to the fire, and they all
agreed to it ; but it was thought best to
make a schedule ot tne names, amounts,
and dates so as hereafter to know who
were forgiven, if any came to pay. It was
done, and the package, labelled at f 30,000,
was cast into the nre.
About four months after this, in the
month of June, a hard-faced old man from
the Cape came to the store to pay a debt
due the deceased. He took a chair, and,
looking over a time-worn pocketbock,
drew out a bunch of bank bills, to pay the
debt On learning his name, date, and
amount, viz., 440, the first step was to
examine the list of burnt notes ; and there
was his name, debt, and .date, of very many
years ago, which, with interest, if preserv
ed, would amount to $300. The adminis
trator told him the fact, and made him put
back his money ; which he did with- eyes
brimful of tears, for he said, "his old dame
had sold the only cow to supply what was
wanting in his hands to pay this debt, and
what glad news it would be to her when
he went home.
Rich for a Moment.
An English magazine, the Friendly
Visitor, recently published the following :
The ship " Britannia," which struck on
the rocks off the- coast of Brazil, had on
board a large quantity of Spanish dollars
as freight They were packed in barrels,
and as soon as the ship struck, a number
of these barrels were brought on deck, in
the hope that some of them might be
saved ; but soon it was discovered that the
vessel was sinking so very fast, that the
only hope for the crew was in taking at
once to the boats. The last boat was about
to push off, when a midshipman rushed
back to see if any one was still on board.
To his surprise, there sat a man on deck
with a hatchet in his hand, with which he
had broken open several of the casks, the
contents of which he was now heaping up
about him.
"What are you doing?" shouted the
youth. " Escape for your life ! Don't you
know the ship is fast going to pieces t '
"The ship may," said the man; "lhave
lived a poor wretch all my life, and I am
determined to die rich." In vain the other
called him a madman, an idiot He was
answered only by a flourish of the hatchet
and a satisfied nod toward the glittering
heaps. " I tell yon the ship can't hold to
gether another moment!" screamed the
midshipman, looking back at him from the
vessel's edge. "Quick, you can be saved!"
" Not without leaving my gold ! " roared
back the man, glaring wildly at him. "Go
your ways." The boat-load would wait no
longer, and he was left to his fate. In a
few moments no ship was to be seen only
the great dark waves of the ocean, rolling
sullenly over the poor rich sailor and his
The Raven, Cuckoo and the Hen.
A raven was crossing a field and saw a
cuckoo preparing a soft bed behind a shady
bush. That seemed very odd to him ; so
he crept nearer and asked the cuckoo what
he was making there.
" A bed, as you see," the cuckoo answer
ed, shortly.
"A bed for what?" the raven kept on
inquiring. You are not going to lie on
the ground As far as I know, yon usu
ally rest in a hollow tree."
"It is not for myself," replied the
cuckoo, " but for that poor sick hen, there,
you see behind the bushes. See that poor
creature,' he continued, weeping; "she
fill my soul with pity; she has not been
well for a long time."
"Really, an odd kind of neighborly
love. I could never in the least have ex
pected that of you," the raven cried, in an
ecsticy ; and the bright tears floated down
his black raven cheeks, at the thought ot
this noble deed.
" Yes," the cuckoo continued, in a whin
ing tone, " this good hen laid me, early
every day, an egg ; upon that I have hith
erto lived when I could get at nothing
else, and how miserable I should be if she
should die! I must perish. Yes, must
starve in these famine times."
Aha, so ! It is not precisely for the
poor sick hen, but for the, eggs you make
the nest," croaked the raven, as, quickly
drying her tears, she flew away. Work
and Play.
An Anecdote of the Rev. Mr. May.
In early life he was settled over a small
pariah in Brooklyn, Ct, and rode in a one
hone chaise about the country. Having
prepared a day's journey for an exchange,
he was advised by a neighbor not to go
alone, as foot-pads infested the road he
was to take. He heeded not the advice,
and, when a few miles out of the village,
he saw a man jump over a low fence out of
a thick wood. He said to himself, " Mine
enemy is upon me." When he overtook
the man he stopped and said cheerily,
" Good morning, my friend ; I have an
empty seat, will you not share it with me r"
They had a long ride and a long talk, Mr.
May giving his passenger a great deal of
moral auvice oy the way. as mey ne&rcu
the point of Mr. May's destination, he
said : "I am a minister, and shall preach
in the next village to-morrow, and if you
would like to hear me, I am sure the
friends who are expecting me will enter
tain you." "'.,.
The man declined the invitation with
apparent confusion, and when they alight
ed from the Vehicle, said he would like to
speak with Mr. May apart a few moments.
When alone, he grasped Mr. May's hand,
looked him squarely in the face and said :
" I must not part without confessing that
when I sprang into the road I intended to
blow your brains out, steal your horse
and carriage, your watch and coat, and es
cape." " O, yes!" said Mr. May, very
pleasantly; "I knew that I was warned
against foot-pads on the road this morn
ing, and I felt sure you were armed when
I asked you to ride with me. " " Fou are
a noble, brave, Christian man," said the
robber with gieat feeling; "your counsel
to-day has sunk deep into my heart, and I
hereby promise you solemnly that I will
lead henceforth a temperate and blameless
life." The promise was kept There had
been a correspondence between them for
more than thirty ytars when Mr. May
told us the story. No one but their Maker
knew their secret The repentant man
prospered, and if he is still living will but
add one more to the thousands who weep
for his benefactor to-day. eyracute, If.

An Anecdote of the Rev. Mr. May. Enjoyment-Happiness.
In what do these consist t How may
they be attained t What is the secret 1
With reference to this subject there are
"many men of many minds." The diversity
of opinion amoDg men is as great as their
physiognomical expressions. There are
no two exactly alike; nor do any two
think precisely alike on all points. Each
seeks enjoyment; all desire happiness.
Many a man lives in his propensities, and
seeks enjoyment in their gratification. He
rises no higher than his appetite and sen
sual nature. His chief gods are wine and
women ; next to these come the love of
lucre and of place. He seeks money ana
position, not so much for their use as for
the love of them. In the pursuit of one or
all of these he forfeits his health, his
moral, and even his hope of heaven.
Still, he seeks en ioyment happiness. His
chief error consists in the fact that his
philosophy is all wrong; he has not yet
learned that one' h'gheet hnppines consists
in miking other happy. He craves sym
pathy for hxtnstlf instead ol seeking to De
stow sympathy on ether. His purely sel
fish aims must inevitably end in failure.
Suppose he acquire the wealth of the As
tora, Stewarts, or Rothschilds; support
he indulge in inordinate affection does
this bring real enjoyment or enduring hap
piness No, no ; up to this point ot his
existence he nas not nsn aove tne teacn
ings of the heathen philosopher who said,
"Do unto others as others do unto you."
He is yet to come up to the higher plane
of Christ's teachings, which were "Do unto
other as ye would that others should do
unto you." Iu thit, and in this alone, we
have the secret of real enjoyment true
happiness. It is further illustrated in those
words so often spoken, so little practiced
"It is more blessed to give than to receive.'
When mankind is educated up to this
high standard, there will be less self in
dulgence and more self-sacrifice, and the
highest happiness. What enjoyment can
be more exquisite, what happiness more
complete, than is realized by the teacher,
preacher, and benefactor, who puts others
in the way of self-improvement and
growth in grace, and who relieve the
suff rings of the unfortunate f Is it not a
source of real enjoyment to Mr. Peter
Cooper when he meets a house full of
tbankiul hearts who express so much grat
itude for the privilege he has afforded them
for acquiring knowledge through his no
ble Institute ? Will not his last hours on
earth, yea, his very departing, be made
glorious and happy by the grace vouch
safed to the godly t Reverse the picture.
Here is a close-fisted, mean and selfish
rich man. He has earned little or noth
ing by personal labor or exertion. He
has become rich, perhaps, by selling whis
ky and tobacco, or by speculating in
stocks; by shaving notes; or by distress
ing the poor whim circumstances placed
in his power. ' All these things are lawful ;
but are they expedient? do they bring
Happiness? The physician who relieves
ph sical suffering enjoys exquisite sensa
tions. The wise counselor, who advises
the way out of a difficulty, enjoys the fact
as much or more than the client The
merchant who supplies a real want, at a
rate satisfactory to all concerned, enjoys
the act The mechanic who makes a ma
chine or erects useful structure for the use
of others, is compensated almost as much
by thank as by dimes and dollars. The
artist who produces a picture, a piece of
statuary, or anything enjoyable, can never
be paid in money alone. It is the thought
of ministering to others' enjoyment that
he is made happy. In the same way we
might go through all the different human
pursuits, and we should find that the
highest happiness in each consists of the
ultimate desire to make other happy. Ver
ily "it it more blessed to give than to re
ceive.'' Let us thank God for the blessed
privilege of "doing unto others as we
would that others should do unto us."

Now is the season for washing blankets ;
and not every housewife knows the best
and easiest mode of washing them. Here
is a plan that never fails, if strictly fol
lowed : Take one pint of soft soap, two
tablespoonfuls of powdered borax, dis
solved in boiling water. Put this mixture
in a tub, and fill half full of cold water;
put in from two to three blankets, as many
as the water will well cover. Let them
stand from twelve to twenty-four hours.
Squeezs and rub them thoroughly, and put
them in a basket to drain (over another
tub) without wringing. Rinse in clear,
cold water, and drain again.
Put a little bluing in for a final rinse
drain, and hang out without wringing. It
will take longer for them to dry, but they
will not shrink, but look white and
smooth. Be sure and use cold water, and

Potato Soup. Here is a .recipe which
has the merit of being very economical,
very palatable, and very quickly made.
Boil in a quart of water a small slice of
salt pork, one or two onions, according to
size. Take from six to eight good size!
potatoes, boil, mash fine, and put them in
with the pork and onions. Boil half an

the right consistency about as thick as

first, before taking.up, add a small piece of
butter, strain through a colander, and

The Anamosa (Iowa) Eureka says that,
while some men were at work in a ceme
tery near the town, they came upon a pair
of striped snakes and their young. The
reputes immediately took reiuge in a
stump, andvafter a time, the old ones
were dispatched, but the young ones had
unaccountably become non ext. Upon ex
amination, however, it was found that the
little fellows, twenty in number, and some
six inches in length, had "scooted " down
the throats of the parent snakes, and.
upon being dislodged, showed as much ac
tivity as ever.
The average life of sixteen printers who

Material fob Ice Houses. It is
said that one of the best materials for ice
houses is peat; but the genuine moss peat
must be employed, and it ought to be cut
in pieces fourteen inches long and five to
six inches wide and thick! When it is
thoroughly dried it proves to be a; ftoor
conductor of heat, and when laid up
around ice houses above if. ground, is
preferred by many pewta to sawdust,

A Philadelphia physician writes to
the Pott to correct an impression that
blackberries are useful or harmless in
cases where children are convalescing
from diarrhea or cholera infantum. He
says that from close observation during
several years, meantime enjoying a large

is no other cause so fatal to life in these
complaints as eating blackberries.
Borers in Apple; Trees. A citizen of
Uswego, rt. ln writes the hural If ere
Yorker that he has prevented the attacks
of apple-tree borers by putting a bushel of
tan oark around tne stem ot each tree.
The tanbark answers the double purpose
of keeping out the borers and as a mulch.
No weeds grow through it, and he says
he has never known a tree to be attacked
around which a heap of tanbark was con
stantly kept Quince trees treated in the
same way thrive admirably, and are free
from borers.
Effects of Mixing Crkam. That the
cream of different cows when mixed does
not produce butter at the same time, with
the same amount of churning, has been
fairly illustrated in the family of Mark
Hughes, at West Grove, Pa., recently.
They had an Alderney heifer in good flow
of milk, and an old cow, a stripper; their
cream, worked together, it wa3 observed
that tbey did not make butter enough for
the bulk of the cream. The buttermilk
also looked rich and seemed to collect a
cream upon it They put the buttermilk
in the churn again, after having the butter
first to come and make about nve pounds.
They churned again for a few minutes, and
found from two to three pounds more but
ter in the churn, showing that the heifer's
cream had made liutter first, and that the
cream of the old cow needed several
minutes more churning.
Putty and Paint. However much
these two articles may be used to hide de
ficiencies and cover up faults by dishonest
tradesmen, m the farmers bands they may
be made to do excellent service. Possibly
the wagon, plows and harrows that have
been in active employment during the
summer, have had their seams or cracks
opened by the sun's heat Now is the
time to stop those cracks or seams with
putty and a touch of paint, before the fall
rains soak in and commence to rot the
wood. Repeated swelling and shrinking
do serious injury to all wooden implements,
and now, while they are wi 11 shrunk, is
the time to look alter them and prevent
the swelling which will occur if damp or
wet is allowed to penetrate, r orks, shovels,
axes, and all tools with wooden handles,
should be rubbed with linseed oil while
dry. They will have their elasticity pre
served and their durability and appearance
improved thereby. American Agricul
tural. Washing Sheep. In Australia sheep
washing is very generally practiced, and
an apparatus is much used there which is
said to perfectly cleanse the wool, and ren
der it suitable to go at once to the manu
facturer. A portable engine or other
power is employed to throw water into a
tank, whence it may receive eight feet fall ;
several spouts are then provided, which
throw into the living wool thin films of
water two and one-half reet wide by one
eighth of an inch thick. This searches
well into the wool and deterges it perfect
ly for the shearer. A modification of this
system has more recently been introduced,
whereby the sheep, after being first sub

A correspondent writes to the New
York Sun that the readiest and most use
ful remedy for scalds and burns is an em
brocation of lime water and linseed oil.
These simple agents combined form a
thick, cream-like substance, which effectu
ally excludes the air from the injured
parts, and allays the inflammation almost
instantly. He mentions a case where a
child fell backward into a bath-tub of boil
ing water, and was nearly flayed from her
neck to below her hips. Her agonies were
indescribable; but her clothing being
gently removed, and the lime and oa
preparation thickly spread over the in
jured surface, she was sound asleep in five
minutes. Subsequently the parts were
carefully washed with warm- -milk and
water three times a day, the oil dressing
renewed, ana tne utile patient rapidly re
covered. Though all the scalded skin
came off, she did not have a scar. This
remedy leaves no hard coat to dry on the
sores, but softens the parts, and aids na
ture to repair the injury in the readiest.
iuu uiuDk cApcuiuuua uiauuer. me mix
ture may be procured in the drug stores ;
but if not thus accessible, slack a lump
of quicklime in water, and as soon as the
wafer is clear, mix it with the oil and shake
well If the case is urgent, use boiling
waier over me lime, ana it win oecome
clear in five minutes. The preparation
mav be kent 'rrsiAv bottled In thi; hnnoo.
and it will be as good when six months
oia as wnen nrst made.
Order in the Household.
' System and order must be strictly ob
served in all household arrangements. " A
place for everything, and everything in
its place." There should be a time for
certain duties, and the housekeeper must
see that there are no infringement of the
laws that are laid down. Children cannot
too soon be taught the importance of
order, neatness, and economy. A habit
of system may be early formed, and prove
a blessing through life. : An ill-govered
household, where there is neither system,
order, neatness, nor frugality, is a bad
school for children.
Never leave things lying about a
shawl here, a pair of slippers there, a
bonnet somewhere else, trusting to a
servant to put them in place. No matter
how many servants you have, it is a mis
erable habit If you set an example of
carelessness, ao not otame your servants
for following it Children should be
aught to put things back in their places
as soon as they are old enough to use
them, and if each member of a family
were to observe this simple rule, the
nouse would never get much out of order.
Western Rural.
Pasturing Meadows, or Young Clover.
Fob want of sufficient pasture, cattle and
horses are often turned into the mown
meadows, or stubbles that have been seed
ed with clover. This is, to say the least in
judicious. Generally dry weather occurs
alter harvest, during which he clover and
grass have a struggle to maintain their
existence, the young clover plants es
pecially suffering from the heat and
drouth. Possibly for some weeks the
principal dependence of the meadows for
moisture is the nightly dews. If the leaves
are allowed to be eaten off, this mode of
supply is arrested, by depriving the roots
of the shade which they would have af
forded. Only a weak growth can then be
made, many plants will be totally destroy
ed, and when the fall rains occur, followed
by nightly frosts, the unsheltered roots are
thrown out by thousands. A promising
piece of young clover may thus be com
pletely ruined and the next year's supply
of hay be seriously curtailed, The small
quantity of feed thus gained is dearly pur
chased. The life of the meadows is con
sumed and their existence threatened
We are aware of the great temDtatlon
there is to turn stock on to the aftermath
and stubbles, but, unless in the very rare
cases where the soil k rich and the growth
is too heavy to be eaten nearly bare, it
would be a great saving of money in the
end to hire pasture, buy feed, or sell the
surplus stock which cannot otherwise be
ted at home, un many farms, had this
course been adopted for one season, the re
sources for feeding in after years would
have been doubled; but by carrying tx
much stock on the fields during the
fall months, they were eaten off too
closely to stand the winter, and were too
seriously Injured to fully recover. It li
becoming more apparent each Tear, that
more stock must be fed on Eastern farms,
nay, on many Western farms, too, or their
fertility cannot be maintained ; but it is
bad policy to keep too many at the com
mencement, before the means of feeding
have become equal to the demand. It is
something like a man living upon his cap
ital, instead of upon the interest of it,
each year; in the; one case he becomes
poorer by mere ill judged use of his means,
which, by proper husbanding, in the other
case would keep .him by its income, and
itself remain intact', , . ,
It is a question worth consideration,
whether it would not be wise to largely
reduce pasturing 'stock; whethpr money
could hot be made by selling off. in the
spring, the bulk of the stock usually pas
tured, and mowing, or otherwise using the
land to produce feed for keeping stock
during the winter, which should - be pur
ch.ised in the fall; by which means more
manure would be made, the difference in
the Tilues of stock at these different sea
sons saved, and all temptation to pasture
mowing-lands, or young grass or clover
fields, removed. American Agriculturitt.
An Accomplished Farmer.
.'. A complete farm is a very complicated
affair, and necessarily comprises within its
boundaries many well-furnished work
shops, and among its laborers many thor
ough mechanics. Thus, for the perfect
developement of the labor saving methods
necessary to the profitable working of a
large, . well-furnished farm,' a thorough
business man and well-educated farmer, as
head manager, as well as an accountant or
bookkeeper, well versed in markets and
commercial matters, finance included, is
needed. Then a gardener and florist, a
blacksmith, carpenter and whet lright, and
engineer are necessary. A well trained
herdsman and a shepherd are requisite, in
addition to the ordinary laborers, as plow
men, etc. On many large estatt s in Eng
land and Scotland, as well as some in our
own country, all these are employed, the
proprietor having a general oversight
only, and interfering personally in no de
tails. Competence in the several subordin
ates being required as a qualification for
their situations, their duties are properly
performed and a regular routine becomes
established. Now, if all these are found
requisite on a large farm, where the work
is exactly similar, only differing in extent,
to that of a small farm, it follows that a
small farmer, working his own land, will
succeed better, as he knows more about all
things necessary to be done
As he will find occasion to perform
many of these offices himself, he nrcst be
his own business man, lay out his work,
and be competent to command his hired
help so that he may use their services to
the best advantage. He must be his own
accountant, or many little losses will es
cape him, and in the aggregate they will
be enough to make themselves seriously
felt. He must be mechanic enough to
build a thed, a hay barrack, a wagon-rack,
or sometimes a sled, or put a new tongue
to a wagon; he ought to be able to b..ild
a stone fence or lay up a wall, or should
know how it ought to be done : he should
be able to cut a screw on a bolt or a burr,
or use a cold-chisel, or splice a rope, or
use a hammer, and drill and blast a rock.
In fact, there is scarcely any knowledge,
either in the arts, sciences, commerce or
literature, but would be a help to a farmer.
A fanner thus educated has, besides the
material advantages he enjoys, a great fa
cility for eujoying the beauties of nature
with which he is brought into close and
daily C3ntact, and will thus learn to love
his profession. Hearth and Home.
Feeding Fowls.
Don't keep food always by your poultry,
because, if laying fowls, they are made
too fat, and : if fattening ones, not fat
enough. To fatten poultry, feed three
times in twenty-four hours ail they will
eat, and remove all they leave, and they
will eat more than when cloyed and dis
gusted by the constant presence of food.
To keep layers in proper condition, feed
twice or thrice daily a regular ration, but
not as much as they will eat - Some say
feed as long as they will run for what you
throw to them and eat greedily, but that is
not right, for they will get too fat unless
they are laying freely. They will show
eagerness about as long as they can swal
low, and will scramble for what you give
them until, in their rivalry, they stuff and
cram themselves, week after week, and be
come a mass of fat, and yet they still act,
at feeding time, as if they were half
starved. Feed your regular laying stock
moderately, and be governed by their state
of flesh rather than by their greed. Take
a few fowls from the perch at night, occa
sionally, to test their weight, and a little
practice will enable you to quickly decide
on the condition of the nock, increase
the ration as the yield of eggs increases.
and so long as the laying keeps pace with
the diet, you may give rich and stimulat
ing feed in any quantity. Feed the select
breeding stock more sparingly than the
rest of the layers, so as to give only a
moderate yield of eggs for hatching pur
poses; for if you promote great prohfic
ness in the parents the result will be weak
ness in the progeny. Chickens, during
the period of their rapid growth, should
be fed very often, with a variety, and all
they will eat While they are growing,
there is no danger of overfeeding if they
are fed frequently and allowed perfect free
dom, so that they may take the exercise
that is indispensable to their thrift

Cancer Cure.
Speaking of the alleged new cancer
cure, tne aeientijie Amencm says:
If, as is claimed, the plant called " cuii
durango" is a specific for cancer, the
world has received a blessing in the dis
covery which will rank with the introduc
tion of antesthesia in surgery. Where
there is such room for skepticism, we may
be pardoned some doubts that the new
remedy is all that is claimed. If it be,
however, the powerful specific alleged, it
will outlive our doubts, and establish itself
triumphantly. In a disease so hopeless,
people will catch even at the shadows of
nope, and so the new remedy will oa sure
to have ample trial .
The story is that an Indian woman in a
province of Ecquador, attempting to
poison her husband by the use of this
plant, cured him of a cancer of long stand
ing. ' This fact having become known to
the American Consul, he obtained a
sample of the plant and forwarded it to
Washington to have its virtue tested. It
is further said tb-t about fifteen cases have
bteu successfully treated with it and that
a large supply is on its way to mis coun
try. Without pretending to vouch for the
truth of the above, we will say that St.
Paul's advice, to prove all things ai.d hold
fast that which is good, if followed, will
soon settle the merits, or want of merit, of
the new cancer cure ' r . -. :
Vice-President Colfax states that his
mother, who was at the point of death
with cancer, has been restored by the use
of cundurango, and is now nearly well.
