Waiting for the Ship.
About an h Jhrt ride from the Plaza there is a high bluff with the ocean break ing uninterruptedly along its rocky beach. There are several cottages on the sands, which look as if they might have been recently cast up by a heavy sea. The col tivated patch behind each tenement is fenced in by bamboos, broken spars and driftwood. With its few preen cabbages and turnip tops, each garden looks like an aquarium with the water turned off. In fact you would not be surprised to meet a mer-man digging among the pota toes, or a mermaid milking a sea-cow hard by. Near this place formerly arose a great semaphoric telegraph with its gaunt arms tossed up against the horizon. It has been replaced by an observatory, connected with an electric nerve to the heart of the great commercial city. From this point the in coming ships are signaled, and again checked ofT at the City Exchange And while we are here looking for the ex pected steamer, let me tell you a story : Not long aso, a simple, hard-working mechanic had amassed sufficient, by dili gent labor in the mines, to send home for his wife and two children. He arrived in San Francisco a month before the ship was due, for he was a Western man, and had made the over-land journey, and knew little of ships, or seas, or gales. lie pro cured work in the city, but as the time ap proached he would go to the shipping of fice regularly every day. The month passed, but the ship came not, then a month and a week, two weeks, three weeks, two months, and then a year. The roagh, patient face, with 6oft lines overlying its hard features, which had be conr e a daily apparition at the shipping agents', then disappeared. It turned up one afternoon at the observatory, as the setting sun relieved the operator from his duties. There was something so child like and simple in the few questions asked by this stranger, touching his business, that the operator spent some time to ex plain. When the mystery of signals and telegraphs was unfolded, the stranger had one more question to ask. " How long might a vessel be absent before they would give ud expecting her?" The operator couldn't tell; it would depend on circum stances. Would it be a year? Yes, it might be a year; and vessels have been given up for lost after two years, and have come home. The stranger put his rough hand on the operator's, thanked him for his u trouble," and went away. Still the ship came not Stately clippers swept into the gate, and merchantmen went by with col ors flying, and the welcoming gun of the steamer often reverberated among the hills. Then the patient tace, with the old resumed expression, but a brighter, wist ful look in the eye, was regularly met on the decks of the steamer as she disem barked her living freights. He may have had a dimly denned hope that the missing ones might yet come this way, as only an other road over that strange, unknown ex panse. But he talked with ship-captains and sailors, and even this last hope seemed to fail. When the care-worn face and bright eyes were presented again at the observatory, the operator, busily engaged, could not spare time to answer foolish in terrogatories, so he went away. But, as night fell, he was seen sitting on the rocks with his face turned seaward, and was seated there all that night When he became hopelessly insane, for that was what the physicians said made his eyes so bright and wistful, he was cared for by a fellow craftsman who had Been his troubles. He was allowed to in dulge his fancy of going out to watch for the ship, in which she "and the children" were, at night when no one else was watching. He had made up his mind that the ship would come in at night This, and the idea that he would relieve the op erator, who would be tired with watching all day, seemed to please him. So he went out and relieved the operator every night For two years the ships came and went He was there to see the outward-bound clipper, and greet her on her return. He was known only by a few who frequented the place. When he was missed at last from his accustomed spot, a day or two elapsed before any alarm was felt One Sunday, a party of pleasure-seekers clam bering over the rocks were attracted by the barking of a dog that had run before them. When they came up they found a plainly-dressed man lying thete dead. There were a few papers in his pocket chiefly slips cut from different journals of old- marine memoranda and his face was turned toward the distant sea. Bret Ea.rU. Presence of Mind. Very much has been written with re gard to this important trait of character; yet adults, as well as children, are con tinually in every danqerout emergency, found lamentably deficient - Accidents, causing death and destruction of prop erty, will ever occur; therefore, in calm ana tranquil moments we should fortify ourselves for the hour of danger. The stcry of "John Raynor" impressed upon the mind, possibly might have restored to life many children apparently drowned. It was in the infancy of this periodical that the account was given, and a host of our present readers were not then its patrons, therefore 'I hope to be pardoned for giving a transcript for publication: es pecially as it cannot fail to interest our juvenile friends. It was during the summer holidays of is , said jut. ijowers, 1 had a young friend staving with me and my younger brother Edward. His name was John Raynor; and how he came by so much in formation as he seemed to have, I do not remember that we troubled ourselves to inquire ; but my father, who liked John exceedingly, said it was from his constant habit of observation. He was then four teen, only two years older than myself. One evening, during the absence of my parents, we occupied ourselves with as sisting our old gardener. The garden sloped down to a broad river, which joined the sea at a few miles distance. I was not so busy but I looked up every now and then to watch the beautiful sunset that sparkled on the water, or the passage of boats, and country barges that glided by at intervals. Suddenly I observed at a short distance, something floating on the water. " It is the body of a boy! said John. and in a moment flung off his jacket and threw himself into the water. Fortunate- 1 P. " " d fiwimnfT and his cour age never left him. lie swam wltnalt his strength toward the floating bodv. and seizing with one hand the hair, with the other directed his course back to the shore. We watched eagerly, and the moment he came within reach assisted him in laving the body on a grass-plot My brother Edward recognized him as the son of a washerwoman, exclaiming, as he burst in to tears: "Poor woman, she will never see her - . . dov agamr John replied in a hurried tone "She may, if we lose no time, and use the right means to recover him. Edward run quickly for a doctor; and as you pass the kitchen, tell Susan to have a bed warmed." "We had better hold him up by the nee is, said tne gardener, "to let the wa ter run cut of his month." "No, no, no !" exclaimed John ; "by so doing we shall kill him, if he is not al ready dead. We must handle him as gently as possible." When the body had been carried Into the house, the gardener urged John to place the body near the kitchen fire ; but after a little persuasion they yielded to John's entreaty, and the body was rubbed dry, and 'placed on his right side between hot blankets, - on a mattress. The head was bound with flannel and placed high on pillows, four bottles were filled with hot water, wrapped in flannels, and placed at the arm pits and feet while the body was constantly rubbed with hot flannels. John then took the bellows, and ha vine blown out all the dust, directed me to close the mouth and one nostril, while he, by blowing in at the other, filled the chest with air; he then laid aside the bellows, and pressed the chest upwards to force the air out -This was done from twenty to inirty times in a minute, to imitate natural breathing. All this time the win aows ana doors were left wide onen. Edward at length returned without the aocior; he was absent from home. The use of friction with warm flannel, and ar - tificial breathing continued for one hour and a half, and no signs of life appeared. John continued his efforts. Another half hour passed, and to the inexpressible de- liehtofus all, the Doy opened his eyes and uttered a faint sigh. What a good thing it was for the moth er of this poor boy that John Raynor once read, on a framed printed paper, " Rules of the Humane Society for Recov ering Persons Apparently Drowned." .Better still, that be had taken pains to re member them. Every item that we can glean, calculated to benefit the distressed, should be treasured in memory's garner for the hour of need. Exchange. A Dutch Lover. A young gentleman in Amsterdam had been, a year or two ago, paying his ad dresses, without success, to a young lady. The father of the maiden was altogether obdurate, and could not be induced to favor the suit : but the swain had observed certain symptoms which led him to believe that his attentions were not wholly unac ceptable to the lady. When the festival of the St Nicholas (December 5th) ap proached, some waggish friends proposed a plan of offering his hand and heart, the drollery of which might possibly soften the unwilling father, and assure the lady of the entire devotion of his person. On the eve ot bt .Nicholas a long and rather narrow box, with some holes in the lid, was conveyed to the house of Mynheer , addressed to JufVrouw, with the swain's compliments, in addition to which, without the tetter's knowledge, the face tious friends had painted, in large letters, Een dikke vnler a tat lover, ine box arrived at the usual five-o'clock din ner-hour; and the daughter, seeing the box in the hall, and, reading the address, wished at once to open it But her father, who perhaps smelt a rat &nd knew better man ms uaugnier me possiDie iiuuiora vi the diy, said : "No: let us have dinner first and meanwhile have the box brought into the dining-room." With some trouble the box was removea there by the maids. Dinner draceed its slow lengtn aiong, was artfully protracted, and the opening of the box kept in abeyance until it was almost time to go to bed. Then the hammer was missing, the screw driver could not be found, and at last the opening of the wonderful box put off until next morning. "Goede-nacht slaap good." All de parted, save Mynheer , the father. With bed-candle in hand, he went to the box, listened carefully for a moment or two, and then, giving the box a slight kick, proceeded to moralize aloud : "What a fool that little donkey of a fel low is to suppose I will ever let him have my daughter! I wonder what he has sent her? What can these little holes be for? LA.h! here is one of mevrouw's knitting- neeaies; lei us pu&e uue iu aim tee u. c can make out" "For Gods sake, don t!" said a stiEed voice from the box, "or you will poke my eye out -Bless me, wnos tnisr wnai can n bet" "lam Mvnheer F . said the voice. " For Heaven's sake, let me out I can't stand it much longer." " Will you promise never to speak to my daughter again, if I do?" " jn o, 1 won t i u Qie nrst" - " Very well, then ; good-night" " Dont be so inhuman ; I shall be dead in another hour." ' Will you promise ! 'No," said the voice in the box, more faintly, "never!" ' Well, you are a brave little soul ; 1 11 let you out" , Sir father took out screw-driver and hammer from his own pocket, where they had len lost and let out the poor lover s very cramped but plump and comely per son. " Now. I am a free man," said the latter. in a somewhat weak voice (and no won der), " I give my free promise, as you have saved my life, not to speak to your daugh ter again without your permission." " WelL" rejoined the father, kicking the box, " if you have not done for her more than most sweethearts would, you have certainly got into less." email wit on one side, ana diplomatic gra itude on the other, made them so well pleased that they shook hands, and parted such good friends that F soonjifter overcame Myneer 's repugnance to the match, and, before the next St Nick olas now the lady, too. Appleton't Jour nal. The Nerves and "Tone." What is the source of this irritability which renders it impossible to keep the muscles still ? We can answer, in general. that irritability means weakness it is a tendency to too easy an overthrow of the balance in which the living textures exist ; the excessive action Ansea irom too rapid a decay. A philosophical physician com pares it to the whirling movement of the hands of a watch of which the main spring is broken : and the eminent French exper imentalist, M. Claude Bernard, has thrown a light on this condition by pointing out ui&i an nmiaiunti pruneness to ucuviiy ex ists in every organ of a living animal at a period immediately preceding the death of the part In our physical, as in our moral nature, strength is calm, patient, orderly; weakness hurries, cannot be at rest at tempts too much. The force which, in the living frame, binds up the elements into organic forms, being relaxed, too easily permits them to sink down, and ineffectual mimicries of energy ensue, But how is living strength to be insured in respect to the functions we have spoken of? The laws we have been tracing give ns a partial answer to this question. Strength in the living body is maintained by the full but natural exercise of each or gan ; and as we have seen, the action of these portions of the nervous system is made dependent upon the influences con veyed to them by the sensitive nerves dis tributed over the various parts of the body. And among these the nerves passing to the skin are the chief The full access of all healthy stimuli to the surface, and its free dom from all that irritates or impedes its functions, are the first external conditions of the normal vigor of this nervous cir cle. Among these stimuli, fresh air and pure water hold the first place. Sufficient warmth is second. The great and even wonderful advantages of cleanliness are partly referable to the direct influence of a skin healthily active, open to all the natural stimuli and free from morbid irri tation, upon the nerve-centers of which it is the appointed Tcitant This iuflu ence is altogether distinct from those cleansing functions which the healthy skin performs for the blood, and in any just estimate of its value is far too impor tant to be overlooked. That S'ate of general vigor which we call "tone "also depends upon the healthy action of these nervous centers. It con sists in an habitual moderate contraction ot the muscles, due to a constant stimulus exerted on them by the spinal cord, and is valuable less for itself than as a sign of a sound nervous balance. Tone is maintained partly by healthful impressions ra diated upon the spinal cord, through the nerves, from all parts of the body, and partly by the stimulus poured down upon it from the brain. So it is disturbed by whatever conveys irritating or depressing inflences in either direction. A single in judicious meal, a sleepless night, a single passion or piece of bad news will destroy it On the other hand, a vivid hope, a cheerful resolve, an absorbing interest, will restore it as if by magic. For in man these lower officers iu the nervous hierarchy draw their very breath accord ing to the biddings of the higher powers. But the dependence of the higher on the lower is no less direct The mutual ac tion takes place in each line. A chief condition of keeping the brain healthy is to keep these unconscious nervous func tions iu full vigor, and in natural alter nations of activity and repose. Thus it is that (besides its effect in in creasing the breathing and the gen eral vigor of the vital processes) muscu lar exercise has so manifestly a beneficial influence on a depressed or irritable state of mind. The bodily movement, by af fording an outlet to the activity of the spinal cord, withdraws a source of irrita tion frcm the brain ; or it may relieve ex citement of that organ by carrying off its energy into a safe channel. We see evi- 1 dence of the same law in the delightful effect of a cheerful walk, and the demand for violent exertion, which is so frequent in insanity. Every part of the nervous system makes its influence felt by all the rest A sort of constitutional monarchy exists within us ; no power in this small State is absolute, or can escape the checks and limitations which the other powers impose. Doubtless the brain is King; bet Lords and Commons have their seats be low, and guard their privileges with jeal ous zeal. If the " constitution " of our personal realm is to be preserved intact, it must be by the efforts of each part, law fully directed to a common end. ThouglUs on Health. The Humbug of Early Rising. All this talk about early rising is moon shine. The habit of turning out of bed in the middle of the night suits some people; let them enjoy it But it is folly to lay down a general rule upon the subject. Some men are fit for nothing all day after they have risen early in the morning. Their energies are deadened, their imagi nations are heavy, their spirits are de pressed. It is said you can work so well in the morning. Some people can, but others can work best at night; others, again, in the afternoon. Long trial and experiment form the only conclusive tests upon these points. As for getting up early because Prof Gammon has written letters to the papers proving the necessity of it let no one be goose enough to do it We all know the model man, aged eighty : "I invariably rise at 5; I work three hours, take a light breakfast namely, a cracker and a pinch of salt work five hours more; never smoke, never drink anything but barley-water, eat no dinner, and go to bed at 6 in the evening." If anybody finds that donkeyfied sort of life suit him, by all means let hi on continue it But few people would care to live to eighty on those terms. If a man cannot get all withered and crumpled up on easier conditions than those, it is almost as wt 11 that he should depart before he is a nuis ance to himself and a bore to everybody else. School boys, and young people generally, ought to get up early, for it is found that nine-tenths of them can stand it ; and it does them good. But let no one torture himself with the thought that he could have been twice as good man as he is if he had risen every morning at day light The habit would kill half of us in five years. Hew Tork Time. How to Give Children an Appetite. GrvK children an abundance oT out door exercise, fun and frolic ; make them reg ular in their habits, and feed them only upon plain, nourishing food, and they will seldom, if ever, complain of a lack of appetite.- But keep them overtasked in school, confined closely to the house the rest of the time, frowning every attempt at play ; feed them upon rich or high season ed food, candies, nuts, etc, allow them to eat between meals, and in the evening, and you need not expect them to have good appetites, cm the contrary, you may expect they will be pale, weak and sickly. JJon t cram them with food when they don t want or have no appetite font such a course is slow murder. If they have no appetites, encourage, and if need be com mand them to take exercise in the open air. Don't allow them to study too much, and especially keep them from reading the exciting light literature which so much abounds in our bookstores and circulating libraries. In addition to securing exercise for the children as above, change their diet somewhat; especially when they have been eating fine flour, change to coarse or Graham Hour. Some Artistic Blunders. Tintoretto, an Italian painter, in a picture of the children of Israel gathering manna, has taken the precaution to arm iaem wim me mouern invention oi guns Cigoli painted the aged Simeon at the cir cumcision of the infant Savior; and, as aged men in these days wear spectacles, the artist has shown his sagacity by plac ing them on Simeon's nose. In a picture by errio of (Jurist healing the sick, the lookers on are represented standing with periwigs on their heads. To match, or rather to exceed this ludicrous representa tion, Durer has painted the expulsion of Adam and Jwe irom the Garden or Jvden by an angel in a dress fashionably trimmed with flounces. The same painter, in his scene of Peter denying Christ represents a Roman soldier very comfortably smoking a pipe of tobacco. A Dutch painter, in a picture of the wise men worshipping the Holy Child, has drawn one of them in a large white surplus and in boots and spurs, ana he is in the act of presenting to the Child a model of a Dutch man-of-war. In a Dutch picture of Abraham offering of fering up his son, instead of the patriarch's "stretching forth his hand and taking the knife," as the Scriptures inform us, he is represented as using a more effectual and modern instrument; he is holding to Isaac's head a blunderbuss. Berlin repre sents in a picture the Virgin and Child listening to a violin ; and in another pic ture he has drawn King David playing the harp at the marriage of Christ with St Catherine. A French artist has drawn with true French taste the Lord's Supper, with the table ornamented with tumblers filled with cigai lighters; and, as if to crown the lint f these absurd and ludi crous anachronisms, the Garden of Eden has been drawn with Adam and Eve in all their primeval simplicity and virtue, while near them, in full costume, is seen a hunter Kith a gun, shooting ducks. Brandy as Medicine. Brandy kills multitudes every year who enjoyed perfect health before they began te use it ; hence it seems fair to infer that it will kill the sick more speedily. Dr. Lee said he was living near Buck ingham Palace, in London, where Prince Albert was taken sick. His case was doing well for a few days, when they began giving him brandy to strengthen him, to enable him to recover more rapidly ; and the more he was stimulated the worse he grew until he died. It is true that they believed that it was the best thing for him, but their thinking so did not make it so. Some years ago, when it was the cus tom to attempt curing delirium tremens by giving brandy, one out of every four died at Edinburgh Hospital Since then, the professor of the medical department has treated 300 cases of dtlirium tremens with out alcohol, without losing a single pa tient Professor Gardner of the Glasgow Uni amsity, liundrcrl men thirty ounces of alcohol; seventeen died out of the hundred. Another hundred were allowed only three ounces, and eleven died out of the hundred. Of 20 J cases of young per sons, who were not allowed either wine or whiskey, not one died. In a teetotal hospital at Leeds, of 3C0 patients who took not a drop, all recov ered. Let facts decide. HaWi Journal of dieaun. Special Farming. Many of the complaints made that farm ing does not pay are founded on the fact that some particular crop has been raised to the exclusion of others, and a failure has resulted disastrously. In mixed farm ing this can not occur. A successful farmer will tell you the secret of his success. He has always something to selL In the winter-time, he has grain of all sorts, wool and mutton ; in the spring, he has some fat cattle or a fresh cow ; some fat calves during summer, and at any time, if one should want a horse, he will have one to snare, having always a colt to put in its p ace. Thus money is all the time dropping ltto his purse, and though the items may be small, the aggregate is considerable; while he has abundance for his domestic supply without having to purchase. Con trast this with the hop raiser, the cotton grower, the fruit culturist, and all others who limit themselves to a special product They may handle more money in a year, but how little of it sticks to their fingers ! They handle it but as trustees for others, and sometimes a failure will prevent them handling sufficient for their pressing needs. Hearth and Home. There are now in the United Kingdom eighteen towns, each with a population ex ceeding 100,000. Thirteen are in England, three in Scotland, and two in Ireland! USEFUL AND SUGGESTIVE. Aw English physician reports that among the poor, rubbing the soles of the feet with garlic is very popular as a pre ventive against disease. Cuttiko Timber. If posts or rails are needed tor service daring the winter, the trees may be cut now, while in full leaf. Allowed to lie as the trees are cut, the evapotion from the leaves will drain the timber nearly dry, when a short exposure afterwards will very effectually season it The economy of using posts and rails peeled is very great ; the loose bark re tains moisture between it and the wood. and the sap wood soon rots. When peeled the saD wood dries, and will last many years longer. Hearth and Home. To Clean Brass.- -Rub the surface of the metal with rotten-stone and sweet oil, then rub off with a piece of cotton flannel. and polish with soft leather. A solution of oxalic acid rubbed over tarnished brass soon removes the tarnish, rendering the metal bright The acid must be W ashed off with water, and the brass rubbed with whitening and soft leather. A mixture of muriatic acid and alum dissolved in water, imparts a golden color to Dras3 articles that are steeped in it for a few seconds.

The quantity, he says, is not so great as to show immediate effects, but thousands are unconsciously consuming a half grain of sulphate of copper every day, a habit that cannot be long practiced with impunity. As he suggests, however, the fault may not rest entirely with the bakers, since there are inferior brands of flour in the market, warranted to make white bread without the use of alum. Thinning Tcrnits. This is a duty that must not be negUcted, if fair, well-grown roots are desired, aud thee make the heavy crops. If the soil is rich, and the growth promires well, twelve or fifteen inches should be left between the plants, otherwise less will do. A sharp hoe is a good singling rasuumeni. v acai.i spaces may be filled by transplanting, if it is carefully done. A garden trowel should be used, and a scoopful of earth taken with the plant and deposited in the place desired. This work should be done on a damp evening, or during a shower of rain. If dry weather occur, it will hardly be worth the trouble; at least, we have found it so m our experience. Hearth and Home. How to Bore Holes in Glass.

A correspondent of the A", id England Farmer says that double zinnias are now as effective a flower as can be raised. Their perfectly cupped petals have quite eclipsed those of the dahlia. The white varieties are now an established fact They are very beautiful, being of a paper whiteness, and every petal is perfectly formed. In order to grow them in perfection they should be prunned and pinched in, and prevented from straggling. A well grown plant, properly trained and prunned. is as fine an object as the flower-beds can ex hibit This season striped zinnias are the novelty. Cracked Heels, or Grease.

The Chemical Neies gives us from the German Manual of Pharmacy the follow ing receipt, by Reinsch, for making the soup tablets so much in use in the German army during the late war: Take eleven parts, by weight, of good suet melt it in an iron pan, and make it very hot so as to become brown ; add, while keeping the fat stirred, eighteen parts of rye meal, and continue heating and stirring, so as to maae me mass Drown; and then four parts of dried salt and two parts of coarsely pulverized carraway seed. The mixture is then poured into tin pans somewhat like those used for making chocolate into cakes. The cakes have the appearance of chocolate, and are chiefly intended for the use of the soldiers while in the field. A quantity of about one ounce of this preparation is sufficient to yield, when boiled with some water, a ra tion of good soup, and in case of need, the cakes being agreeable to . the taste, may De eaten raw. Hors WrrnouT Poles A correspond ent of the Country Gentleman writes as follows : 'Eight years' experience proves that we can pick our hops as cneaply, and much neater, by using baskets and pick ing from the vine trained horizontally and low, without cutting any part of the vine, thus leaving it to mature and ripen the root for next year's use ; w hen the hop yard is trailed in this way, no hills die, but the plant is more vigorous each year, as long as it is weii ias.en careoi, with one-fourth the manure that is required if the plants are cut Many of our hoD-growera are not aware of the great outrage they are committing upon the first principles of vegeiaoie pnysioiogy Dy severing such a mass of vines and foliage as is done in all cases where the hop is trained high and the vines cut to pick.

Butter. A corresponi:r?t of the Lcwietown (Me.) Journal raja t "The local requisites for the manufdcuira of good butter are air, wholesome waiir, and a sufficiency of Bweet, nutritious ueroagc. f resh, rich, juicy feed will eohance both the quality and quantity of milk and butter. The requisites named belon g, generally, to some what elevated or hilly districts, rather than to those or an opposite character. A rolling, elevated country, hillv often. times, abounding in springs of soft water, and drained by clear rippling streams flow ing over gravelly beds, constitute the pre dominating character of the best daiiying districts of Vermont New York and the Middle Mates, so famous for their dairy products. On such lands the best and sweetest natural grasses obtain, and per haps half a dozen more different varieties abound, in themselves full of the best milk-producing qualities. In nearly all of our billy pastures the white or Dutch clover abounds, the presence of which in dicates a good range for cows. Another essential is a change of pas ture. This, I believe, U contrary to the teachin gs of some, but I think where prac ticable it ia, the better way to give the cows a chaste of range every ten days or so. Fresh pastures are clean, the grass is even, full and nutritious, and the animals will fill themselves and then lie down and digest their food in quietness. A pasture long run over becomes soiled with the droppings and treadings of the cows upon it A better flow of milk follows a change into a new pasture than a continuance on an old one, and it is more economical. Turning off from a close-fed pasture, the rains bring it up anew, and in a few days or weeks it is ready for the cows again, while the one last fed again grows up to supply its place, when that is exhausted. During the latter part of July, and gen erally through August, the feed in the pas tures gets short The deficiency may be made up wholly or in part at least bv ex tra feed from drilled corn or second crop grass from the mowing field. Cows, to yield the best returns, should always have ready access to a plenty of good water. This is almost indispensable, lor it is impossible to make good butter without a good supply of pure water. Those having pastures where the water fails in a dry time have probably observed how rapidly their cows shrink in their milk when water is scarce and the animals do not get their usual supply. When we consider that about eighty-seven parts of the constituents of milk are water, a cow that gives a large quantity of mlik would re quire a good supply to keep up a uniform flow of milk. It would be far better to induce them to take all the water they will, than to have them nut upon short al lowance. Tta'itdicingcowstodrinklarge quanmies oi water will increase the now of milk is certain; but to what extent the quantity of milk may be increased with eut detriment to the quality, by inducing the animal to take an abundant supply ot liquid, I am not prepared to say. But I am satisfied that milk of good quality may be increased by this method. Selecting Seed. All the improvements in sed have been the result of selection. The best seed selected for use has yielded an improved product and the process again and again repeated has finally resulted in secur ing the plant, root, or grain desired. Corn has been much improved bv a course of selection, but farmers who have most at stake in this matter are too careless to c-irry out experiments to a final result Now, if a seed could be secured that would produce with certainty two ears of corn to eacn siaik, our corn crop would be vastly increased, and it is pretty cer tain that if for a succession of years no corn were planted but that which pro duced two ears to the stalk, the peculiarity would become fixed, and a corn having this as a distinguishing characteristic would become an established variety. What we need is that farmers should be careful to select their seed ears while the corn is standing, that they may be sure that tne ears selected are pertect in shape and filling out, early in ripening, and grow double. An improvement of ten per cent only in the corn crop from judicious selection of seed, would aJd a value of hlty millions of dollars to the agricultural income of. the country, and this is no mean item. Hearth and Home. Blanching Celery. Trrs last of August is the time to begin earthing up celery that will be wanted for use in October or November. The crop aesignea lor winter use neea not be earth ed up until later iu the season, for if blanched too early It ill be neither as good nor keep as well as that which is blanched in cool weather. In earthing ud some care is required to keep the soil on the out ide of the head, and to do this the operator should clasp the leaves and stems in one nana, homing them together, while with the other the earth should be drawn around the plant and pressed firmly against it a very little soil will sumce for this purpose, and more can be added if requir ed, when both hands are free to use the hoe or spade. If the plants are not grow ing as vigorously as required, then give them a liberal supply of liquid manure few days before the frst earthing up. Of course the liquid should not be thick and rank, for this would cause rust ; but let it be strong, and then dilute with considera ble water, so that the earth about the plants may be well-soaked, and not merely sprinkled. Celery intended for a late crop should be frequently hoed during this and next month ; and if the weather is dry, water freely, adding some kind of stimu lating manure, if necessary. Rural A'eie Totktr. Fish have great tenacity of life. It is believed that carp has attained an age of la J years, ana tne piKe a still greater age. A pike was caught in a lake in South Ger many, in 1827, on which was found a ring bearing this inscription: "I am the fish which was first of ail put into this lake by the hands of the Governor of the Universe, Frederic II., the 5th of October, 1230." It weighed 350 pounds, and was 19 feet long. In the artesian well being sunk in the city park, San Diego, C&L, at a depth seventy-five feet the workmen struck a bed of clay embedded in which were petrified whalebones ; at a depth of fifty feet petri fied clam shells were found in abundance.

If they did, anathemas against the depleting lancet, the drastic purge, and the terible salivants of the materia medica, would arise from every grave yard. The motto of modern medical science is, " Present and Begvlate, not Destroy," and no remedy of onr day is so entirely in harmo ny with this philanthropic logic as Da. AValk ik's Veoitablb Vixeoab Bitters. In this powerful, yet harmless restorative, dyspepsia, bilious complaints, and all diseases of the stomach, liver, bowels and nerves, encounter an irresistible antidote. For Sewtno Macbinb thread use Geo. A. Clark's O. N. T. It is six-cord in all numbers, is never enameled, and is stronger and better In all respects than all others. A Safe Dry Goods House. Eastern underwriters have pronounced Hamlin, Hal & Co.'s house the best Dry tioods risk in the United States. The enormous stock of Dry Goods, Carpets, Woolens, Notions and Dress Fabrics which this great firm keeps, makes it impossible for them to get sufficient insurance, hence they have made thcr buildings, Nos. &t to 104 Wa bash avennc, the most complete in appoint ments of any in America. Thb he use of J. V. Farwcll & Co. now im port all their foreign goods through the Su Lawrence River, direct to Chicago, thus sav ing time and expense. A Safe Dry Goods House. The Invalid--A Pen Picture. See her pallid countenance, but a short time ago the picture of ruddy health, the envy of the school and the pride of the house hold. She was always welcomed by her schoolmates, for her lithe form and pleasing disposition carried cheerfulness into their ranks. Diligent, punctual and exemplary, obedient and graceful at home, she won the hearts of all. But, alas, we are sorrowed. Those rosy cheeks and ruddy lips are blanched by Consumption. The voice once enchanting in laugh and song is feeble, husky, and supplanted by a hollow cough. Let approach her conch pontly and toko her hand. Do not shudder because of the feeble and pas sionless grasp. The hand once so hearty and plump is emaciated, and shows long outlines, while the cords and tortuous veins are plainly mapped upon the surface. The pulse that bounded with repletion, carrying vigor the whole system and imparting life, beauty, vivacity, health and strength, is delicate the touch. The feeble heart cannot propel the thin scanty blood with force. Must we lose her while yet in her teens? Compan ions and friends gather around with words cheer and consolation, and depart with moistened eyes and silent steps. Must we lose her? 'o! there is relief! tYe can stay this destroyer of our happiness and not suf fer the loss of so bright a gem. Something more is required now than dietary and hy gienic observance, for nature calls fur aid and she shall have it. Take this pleasant medicine. It is invigorating. How it allays the Irrita ble congh, improves the appetite and diges tion, and sends a healthy tingle through the frame. The blood is enriched, nervous force increased, and the heart bounds with a new impulse. See her face brighten by degrees the color is returning ; her voice is getting clearer, and pleasant words are spoken. The strength falters yet, but' is gaining. Let us take her out in the warm sunshine. . In short time she will be able to go without our aid, aTheerful girl. This delightful medicine must be God-blessed. It is restoring health to our loved one. She is emerging from her sickness sweeter and nobler than before, and Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery most have the credit. It has raised her.

A gentleman from Bethel Hill, Me., says that Messrs. Allen Bros., proprietors of Phillip Allen's Flint Works, R. I., were down to Birant's Pond recently, trouting, when one of them was attacked with sciatic rheu matism so snddenly that he had to be carried from the pond to his hotel. A bottle of Juhn on' Anodyne Liniment was resorted to, and he was ont next day. No last now considers her wardrobe com plete without a supply of black alpaca dress es.

Wilted Down. a Ask the man who complains of "wilting down" In torrid weather what he has done to sustain his system under the extra strain imposed on his vi tality. He may tell you that he has tried a vari ety of cathartics to purify his bloud and brighten his spirits.

What be requires is a restora tive, not a depetant His blood to thin; his nerves have lost their natural tension, and nature demands to be renovated and reinforced. The means is within the reach of all. For nearly score of years Uoetetter's Stomach Bitters has been building op broken constitutions, bracing and strengthening attenuated frames, and afford ing comfort, ease and hopd to thousands. As a preventive of the epidemics which make such havoc with the health of the inhabitants of new settlements, this famous tonic Is certainly with out a rival. Perhaps the principal portion of its world-wide fame is attributable to its astonishing cares ui aynpepsia, ana au lorms or lnaigesoon, But tt-ese are tot a moiety of its triumphs. All the types of hilionsness yield to its persistent nse. It is a reimlatioff medicine of the highest order: a d its eject upon the secretions, when irregular, is most salutary. Impooition or the grossest character is sought to d pracupea upon tne community by venaors. who recommend, under the name of " bitters.' fiery compounds of a dangerous chaiacter, which they attempt to substitute for the great national tonic.
