An Indian Killer Interviewed.
There been stopping in this city for a coupijj 0f flays pgg one 0f those charac- " : wno nave made for themselves a jiebrity for their braverv and daring on the plains of the far West, among the Indians and the buffalo; in recounting Whose deeds, hair-breadth escapes and peculiar life, the rages of romance are filled. The person to whom we refer is no less a character than "Camanche Bill," who is reputed to be the slayer of no less than one nun area ana eighty-three Indi ans. He has been nine years on the plains, part of which time he has been in the employ of the government as a scout. He has hunted and killed Indians for the Eleasore and sweets of revenge, and unted and trapped of necessity. He is now on his return to his old life in the West, having been on a visit to his early home in Minnesota. He is about twenty eight years of age, of slender build, sandy complexion, with a profusion of hair that he wears long on the neck. His dress is a pair of buckskin pants, ornamented from the outer seams with a row of steel buttons, a coarse shirt, an old coat and a broad brimmed hat. His eye is piercing keen, and he has a grip like a dozen blacksmiths. in response to our questions he said : "My name is George W. Porter. I have been on the plains since 01 I was in the Minnesota massacre, near New Ulm, ine 131.1 01 August of that year. All my folks were killed, except me "and my little sinter, three years old, whom they took prisoner. Where was you t" " I was avvBy at the military station on business; went the day before. The first I kne- of the massacre, I was coming alog the road on my way home, when I nw a little ways ahead of me a wagon filled with women and children that the settlers had sent to the station for pretec lion. Just then I saw the Indians pounce upon them, and I dodged into the woods. I could hear the hatchets crushing into their heads. They killed 'em all, every one." 44 What did yon dor They scalped 'em, and when the coast was clear, I got out, and pretty soon along . came a company of cavalry, and we buried them" " Why didn't you follow after the In dians?" " I had no horse, and the captain didn't want his men to go. Tou see that was in 'C2, and everything was topsy-turvy.'' Did yon visit the scene of the massacre at New Ulm f" "Yes; I went there the next day, and saw my father and mother all scalped and cut up, and my sister was gone. I swore by the eternal God I would never rest until I had had revenge a bloody re venge." "Did you ever get any traces of your sister f "Why, yes, there was the Yankton, Swanee and Sioux Indians, and I knowed them pretty welL I learned that they had her. I knowed what they'd do with her." "Yon have not been successful in your efforts to secure her. ' No ; you see, single-handed and alone, a man don't stand much chance. That's -what I had been doing all the time. Once, in Arizona, I was right in sight of her. The way I knowed It was her was, I had been on the trail of the band of Sioux that had her a long time, and she was the only white person they had. This was in '65, and then she looked just like mother. I waited and watched and watch ed, and picked an Indian off every little while, when he'd get a mile or two from camp, tnt 'twas no use. They kept too good watch over her." Were yon ever captured f "Yes. The Blackfeets captured me and Jim Braden in '64, when we were out hunting. They came on us with a rush, but they didn't get ns though until I had killed one young buck." " What did they do with you ?" " " They marched about twenty-five miles to their camp, and there they stripped us of everything we had, and tied us up to a stake, and let the women poind ns with clubs. They did this every day for eight days. We were tied with buckskin thontrs. and one night it rained, and we slipped out of 'em when they got wet. Jim got away all right, but just as I was gittin' my things on, an old squaw woke np and gave the alarm. There was but four Indians in camD. The rest had pone on a hunt. I run, with only my knife. They came up to me, and I had a desperate fight. One shot had hit me in the left arm" (exhibiting scar). " I cut and slashed the buck that got hold of me, and finally gave him one under the ribs, so he won't tie anymore thongs. And he cut me, too, here and there, and here " (showing scars on his arm. neck and breast). " The other buck never came near, for I'd got this buck's gun atore ne a reacnea us. The rest of "Camanche Bill's" story. how h9 followed his sister among the Camanches, and had a fight with the white duet or that nation, and other equally in teresting accounts, we shall have to omit. tsat ii our readers wish to see a genuine trontiersman, they should call upon the " Indian fighter " himself. Davenport (Iowa) Gazette. Home Life. Tnatruehomethewhole house ought to belong to the family, and be occupied by them. There ought to be spare cham bers for the gwwts, and room for hospi tality, but there should be no shut cham bers or shrt parlors, sequestered from all domestic use. There should be no mys teries in the home, no place of oracle tJxjre. Every part of the houso, from cellar to garret, should be open and known, not only lighted and ventilated, ,at visited! too, by every member of tr.e household! In a real home the family '.dwavs use the best part of their housaad fa whole of it They go. in the front door, as well as at the bk door b the wide stairs M weU M by the nar row staircr, and they use the solt cush ions, damask and the velvet, as well as lne cane seat and the straw matting. In a genuine house no part or appendage of the house ought to be too good for those who are members of the family. It is well in the home that each member should have his own retreat, his own chamber, the daughters and the sons and the ser vants, but not well that there should be no feeling of common right in the house. And a good home is not within the walls of the house. The first home of the first family was not in a house at all, but in a garden. To realize the home now there ought to be a garden attached to it, some space open to the sky in which green things and bright things may grow, and the family may enjoy God's sunlight to- geiner. Doras aina oi a garden every true home ought to have, a clear space in front or in rear or around. Every well ordered home will have a library. Until this in some form comes into the house it has not the right to be called more than a lodging-house, or an eating-house, however sumptuously it may be furnished. How many bocks are ne cessary to make a library we shall not venture to say, or whether the old Puritan measure of the Bib'.e, the dictionary and spelling-book is 'u be taken as the unit, or rather iTiity in Unity. Books enough to meet ordinary need of intercourse and conversation and reference, " the stand i d works," enough to give the impression of culture and intelligence; home must have these, even if it has to spare some physical comforts to get them. Books in the house are a binding influence between members of the family, the means of dis persing the clouds, making rainy days useful, and enlivening hours of solitude. And in a true home the library will not be "stowed away" in a closet or dark room, but will be in the center of the house, in the meeting-place of the family, where the young and old together catch" inspira tion in its gathered hoard. In the true home the library will be the favorite "sit ting-room." Music there ought to be in every home ; not only the music of a mother "singing to her clean, fat rosy babe," which the Radical Cobbett so mnch glorifies, but the music of consenting voices and consenting iiarps. The head of the house may be a z xxi steward without any musical enow- :0 ee, but the true father will know more tha.n the "two tunes, between which he cannot decide, when he hears his daughter strike the keys. The best sentiment of home connects itself from infancy to age with the voice of music. And home is more fully realized when all the family are together. There is a painful absurdity in talking of the pleas ure of home when the children of the house are scattered, or the parents are con tinually absent A father who spends all his time in his shop or in his club, except the hours of the night in which he sleeps, or the minutes which he eives tor meals, knows nothing of the satisfaction of home. lnis is one ot the solecisms or American life, that men of wealth lavish so much upon their houses, but are in these houses so little. The children, too, .are sent away to bearding schools or to Europe, and three-quarters of the great house re main unoccupied. Of course, m the pas sage of life and the changes of fortune, it is inevitable that the family circle should be broxen up. The lone widow, whose children have gone away from her as they married and settled in life, may speak of her ' home " as the place where she nas lived so long, though how no one is with her there. The forms of the departed are there in her thought and she has society in her memories. But while the children are yet in tender years and in leading strings, home implies that they are togeth er in the house, and are not scattered in foreign and uncongenial abodes. For a good part of every week-day, for a large part ot every Sunday, the parents and cnn dren ought to be in each other's close so ciety. It is more important for a man of business to be in his home than to provide merely for its enlargement The " club " is no blace for one who has wife and chil dren : it is an institution for the refuge of grim and forlorn celibiates, and even for them it is of doubtful value. Genuine home-life implies a hearty love for the so ciety in the house, which will hold this as close and as long as the children are will ing to remain. Home is a place for men as much as for women, for the sons as much as for the daughters. And no one has a true home when there is any place that he loves better to be in than his home. Herald of Health. Arsenic in Wall-Papers. A correspondent of the British Medi cal Journal writes . Hitherto it has been generally suppos ed that only papers entirely green, and of a very bright shade of green, were arsen ical ; but the - feet is, as proved by the analysis of eminent chemists, that every paper which contains any green in the pattern, no matter how little, or of what shade, as a general rule contains arsenic, and is, therefore, injurious to health. One shade of green is no safer than another, for the very palest greens frequently con tain large quantities of arsenite of copper, the brilliant color of which is toned down to any degree of paleness by the addition of chalk and sometimes of white lead ; the result being that pale green papers often contain just as much arsenic as those of brighter color. The quantities of arsenic used in green papers appear almost unli mited, varying from the fractional part of a grain up to the frightful amounts of six, nine, fourteen grains and upwards, to the square foot I have beside me some pale green papers, the analysis of which give those amounts, and the illnesses produced by those papers proved in some cases all but fatal. I have also by me a paper with green leaves on a white ground, contain ing no less than eight grains to the square foot which caused most serious illness. " When the atmosphere of dwellings all over the kingdom, in town and country, is thus more or less poisoned with arsenic, the most volatile and the most subtle of all poisons, need we be surprixed at the in creasing prevalence or various forms or disease t Investigation of this subject is earnestly called for. I cannot but regard it as a question of great national import ance, affecting masses of our population physically, mentally, and morally, to an extent little conceived at present There appears good reason for believing that a very large amount of sickness and mortal ity among all classes is attributable to this cause, and that it may probably ac count for many of the mysterious diseases of the present day which so continually imiuiv oil uieuiu&i sjuii. Arsenic being exceedhnrlv volatile, its effects by inhalation, both of gaseous emanations from the oaDers. and of the fine impalpable dust thrown off at all tem peratures, are highly dangerous, produc ing symptoms both chronic and acute, wuicu simulate various iorms or disease. x say nmuuae, Decause l nave seen cases where the symptoms ot various diseases were produced by the irritation of the en tire mucous membrane, and consequently of the whole system, resulting from the occupation of rooms with arsenical wall papers; and on the removal of those papers the symptoms gradually subsided, thus proving wai mey were tne result or irri tation, and not of organic disease. But it would seem not improbable that prolong ed exposure to the same nnlsnnnno in. fluence may in time produce those diseases wmcn are at Erst only simulated. u Having witnessed the effects of slow- uuuxHUUK uy arsenical Tmnprs in mv nwn lamily and household during a number of jtoio, uiu uavmg Bunerea severely my self from the same cause, I speak from personal experience. During a nprirwl nf twelve years we were rarely free from ill ness in some form or other. No fewer man twelve physicians, several of emi nence, were consulted in London and elsewhere. They all agreed as to the diseased conditions which existed, but not one succeeded in affording more than a measure of temporary relief. Children and adulta of both sexes, including several servants, and numbering altogether four teen persons, all suffered. The peculiar nature and obstinacy of the symtoms were such that I could not but think sometimes that some hidden 'cause was at work ; which analysis of the papers of rooms occupied during these twelve years has since proved to be indisputably the case. The idea that arsenic papers were the cause of illness was suggested by the perusal of a little book not long since pub lished, entitled, 'The Green of the Period, which givts much valuable in formation on the subiect and was nut in to my hands by a physician who was at tending us. The proof that such was really the case lies in the fact, that on re moving all the papers containing green the symptoms were soon greatly relieved." Shirt Making. Take an old shirt, rip it to pieces and cut out the new one by it, baste it together and try it on. Don't laugh at the idea; I Know it is an old one, for I once heard a young man say he " did not know there was any fit to a shirt," but trying it on is the only way a shirt can be made to fit, un less you nave a scientific pattern cut by a practical tailor to eo by. After you have got it to fit nicely, un baste it and cut out a pattern, allowing for the seams and marking all the hems, gathers, etc., by notches, so it will be just right to cut your cloth by. So far your trouble is ended. But few ladies are now compelled to make bosoms, as they can be bought for a trifle more than the linen would cost, and by the way, young wives, buy cheap bosoms; nice high priced bosoms will not wear out the shirts, and two cheap ones that cost about the same will, and when starched and ironed nicely a twenty cent bosom looks nearly as well as one costing fifty cents. I know this by experience, and I find that two cheap bosoms last as long as the shirt, while one nice one is gone, leaving the shirt good. As a general rule I do not approve of cheap goods, but this is an exception. Putting the bosom into the shirt is the first thing to be done after it is cut Double the front of the shirt in the middle, also double the bosom and lay it upon the shirt exactly square and even all around, then cut out a piece one inch wider than the bosom, and half an inch shorter. Unfold shirt and bosom, commence at the top ot each side and sew the bosom in place of the piece yon cut out Then lay a plait at the bottom and upon each side, both plaits ofa size and large enough to make the bosom set smooth; stitch the bottom across, turn the bosom under and hem it down, it being half an inch too long, hav ing been left so for that special purpose, and saves sewing a tape across as some do. The object of makiog a plait in tne shirt at the bottom of the bosom is to make the front of the shirt narrow. The back yon will at once see needs to be wider than the front to give freedom to the arms - and shoulders ; if both sides are of a width the bosom will shrug together and set out be yond the vest in a manner you may have seen but could not explain. Line the front of the shirt the whole length and width from the bosom back to the arm size. Some only face a narrow strip just around the arm size, bnt the best way by far is to line the whole back from the neck down to the bottom of the arm size and the front as I before said. The quickest and easiest way to sew up seams in shirts and an outer nnuer gar ments is in this wise : bew np your gar ment or sleeve upon the right or outside, trim the seam very small, turn and sew up again on the wrong side and your seam is quickly and neatly nmtnea witnoui ieii in?. which is a branch of sewing most ladies dislike very much to do. The first time sewing the seam, the stitches may be long if the cotton is strong, but the next titse it must be done tigni and well, ana you find the seam strong and soft Cor. Ulm Farmer. Nutrition. The manner of properly selecting and preparing food, and its judicious variation, is one that does not receive the attention that it oueht Professor Blot who is ad mitted to be authority on this subject says that "it is by practical experience that we learn what is proper for us, and not by chemical analysis." How can it be otherwise, when the same articles which are relished and easily digested by some persons, are distasteful and indigestible in the case of others? As no satisfactory reason can be assigned for this, it must be attributed to the peculiar idiosyncracy of the individual, and it is only experience that can teach each one what particular article of food agrees with him, and what does not It often happens that a certain article of food is highly relished and en joyed, and yet is indigestible by the one who is thus fond ot it in this case taste will not do to be relied on, and experience will have to admonish when inclination prompts to indulgence. The great chemish and physiologist, Ma- gendie, made some interesting experiments on the effects of certain kinds of food. He fed geese on gum only, and they died on the sixteenth day; he fed some on starch only, and they died on the twenty fourth day ; he fed others on boiled white of eggs only, and they died on the forty- sisin day, ne led outers on tne three sinus mixed together, and they fattened instead of dying. Here is a proof of the neces sity of not only varying but mixing food as much as possible, in order to supply the waste and necessities of every part of the system. in the nrst instance, gum auorded a nourishment similar to starch and sugar, serving to sustain animal heat, but not to restore the waste of the tissues, on account of the absence ot nitrogen. In the second instance, starch served to keep up the ani mal heat and being more highly organized than tram, enabled the birds to maintain existence a few days longer. The want of nitrogen, however, proved fatal, as in the case of gum food. Those fed onwhite of eggs alone had the nitrogen afforded by tne albumen, but eventually died from want of a supply of animal heat capable of being yielded by the starch. Those fed on the three kinds of food mixed not only survived, but throve, because all the wants of the system were supplied. As before stated, the preparation and cooking of food should receive its proper share of attention, if the greatest amount of benefit is to be derived from its intro duction in the system. Blot, the professor of this art, says that green vegetables, such as cabbage, spinach, eta, should be put in boiling water, but dry vegetables, as beans and peas, should be put in cold water to cook, alter navtng been previously soaked in lukewarm water. In the cose of potatoes, the eyes or germs are to be cut out and the skin rubbed or scraped off, then steamed or roasted. He thinks that fish, although only containing twenty per cent oi nutritious matter, ought to be par taken of at least twice a week, as it con tains more phosphorus than any other food, and serves to supply the waste of that substance in the system, and particu larly in the brain. He says that the brain of an idiot contains about 1 per cent of phosphoric matter; that of persons of sound intellect, 2 per cent, while that of a maniac contains 3Jj per cent If this be so, it would seem that in a maniac the brain appropriates an undue proportion of phosphoric matter trom the rest of the sys tern, whereby its functions are materially impaired. Scientific American. Washington Pastry. A sojourner in Washington sends the following : I am particularly fond oflemon pie and ice cream for dessert At Hotel I went on peaceably for a couple of weeks, but always eating my lemon pie under a silent protest, for I was a stranger, and did not like to make objections. Finally I called a waiter and said : "John, I have nothing to say about the ice-cream, but what kind of a pie is this ?" "What kind of a pie did you order Bah?" " I ordered lemon pie, but this appears to be dried apple." "Dat's lemon pie, sah. You know dey hasawayof mixin' dried apples in the lemen pies here, sah, to dat extent it re quires a man of 'bility for to distinguish 'em apart, sah. Lemons is scase, you know, and dey has to 'conomize 'em so as to make one lemon do for sixteen pies, sah." Galaxy. Economy in Selecting Carpets. In selecting carpets for rooms much used, it is poor economy to buy cheap ones. Ingrain carpets, of close texture, and the three-ply carpets, are best for com mon use. Brussels carpets do not wear so long as the three-ply ones, because they cannot be turned. Wilton carpets wear badly, and Venetians are good only for halls and stairs. ' In selecting colors, avoid those in which there are any black threads ; as they are always rotten. The most tasteiui carpets are those which are made of various shades of the same color, or of all shades of only two colors; such as brown and yellow, or blue and buff, or salmon and green, or of all shades of green, or of brown. In laying down carpets, it is a bad prac tice to put straw under them, as this makes them wear out in spots. Straw matting laid under carpets makes them last much longer, as it is smooth and even, and the dust sifts through it In buying carpets, always get a few yards oyer, to allow for waste in matching figures. In cutting car pets, make them three or four inches shorter than the room, to allow for stretch ing. Begin to cut in the middle of a figure, and it will usually match better, Many carpets match in two different ways, and care must be taken to get the right one. Sew a carpet on the wrong side, with a double waxed thread, and with the ball stitch. This is' done by taking a stitch on the breadth next to you, point ing the needle toward you ; and then tak ing a stitch on the other breadth, pointing the needle from you. Draw the thread tightly, but not so as to pucker. In fitting a breadth to the hearth, cut slits in the right place, and turn the piece under. Bind the whole of the carpet with carpet binding, nail with tacks, having bits of leather under the heads. To stretch the carpet use a carpet fork, which is a long stick, ending with notched tin, like saw teeth. This is put in the edge of the car pet, and pushed by one person, while the nail is driven by another. Straw matting is best for chambers and summer parlors. The checked, of two colors, is not so good to weir. The best is tne cheapest in the end. When washed, it should be done with salt water, wiping it dry ; but frequent washing injures it Bind matting with cotton binding. Sew breadths together like carpeting. In ioin- ing the ends of pieces, ravel out a part and tie the threads together, turning under a little of each piece, and then, toying the ends close, nail them down with nails hay ing kid under their heads. Mist Beecher. Punch gives the following as a case of reasoning by analogy : Cecil (who is in the habit of surreptitiously dissecting his sis ter's dolls). " Oh, aunty ! I declare if here isn't a great big 'normous heap of saw dust! How very, very dreadful !" Aunt Dreadful, why, darling! Whyr" Cecil. " Why, the lots of men and women that must have been killed here, you know!'' USEFUL AND SUGGESTIVE. A sew way of hanging oil paintings is to have large blocks of wood at the back of the frame to prevent their touching the wall, so that the air can circulate through the back and prevent the painting being injured by dampness or blistered by the heat from the chimney or flues.

It is a real blessing to have one in the family who is sensitive to the ludicrous. There are enough to reflect the sad side of life, and its irritable side, and its sober side. We need one or more to show the mirth that often trembles just below the surface of painful things. A mil, juip&iuauo laugu viuvi-jaica MUtmj IslW sions, sweeps the twilight out of our im aginations, and brings" honest daylight. But it must be real. No dry, hacking laugn. ii snouia oe spontaneous, out bursting, irresistible, infectious. We have seen men fall to laughing who had not heard the cause of mirth, but only had caught the contagion of other men's laugh ing. It is hard not to laugh with men who are in earnest about it Kzehange. Getting Rid of Rocks. We have no ticed very often, in going about the coun try, a great amount of labor expended in digging out large stones and dragging mem to tne sunace, where they lie, a greater nuisance, if possible, than when they were partly buried in the soil. If a different mode of treatment had -been fol lowed, they might have been neatly and permanently disposed or. Instead ot bring ing them to the surface, they should have been buried out of sight Had a hole suf ficiently large been dug close to the rock the removal of which was desirable, and partly undermining it a simple overbal ancing with a crowbar or handspike would have tumbled it therein, and it might then have been covered np and forever gotten rid of. In this way an acre of ground can be easily cleared of large stones in a very snort lime, and tne unsigntiy appearance of fence corners occupied by them avoided. Hath and Borne. Why Do Animals Neep Salt? Prof. James E. Johnson, of Scotland, says that half the saline matter of the blood (75 per cent) consists ot common salt, and as this is partly dissolved every diy through the skin and kidneys, the necessity of con tinued supplies of it to the healthy body is sufficiently obvious. The bile also con tains soda (one of the ingredients of salt) as a special and indispensable constituent, and so do all the cartilages of the body. Stint the supply of salt, and neither will the bile be able property to assist diges tion, nor the cartilages to be built up again as fast as they naturally waste. It is bet ter to place salt where stock can have free access to it than to give it occasionally in small quantities. They will help them selves to what they need, if allowed to do so at pleasure, otherwise when they be come salt-hungry, they may take more than is wholesome. The St Louis Journal of Education says : " Every teacher should understand how to plant trees and the art of grafting, and should be able to teach children these things. The play grounds of all our school-houses should be filled with shade trees, both in the city and country. Every holiday at school should be celebrated by the planting of trees. The highways should be lined with trees, thus planted by the vouth of the country. Thn rav ages which the foolish greed of the last and present generations has made in our forests could thus, in time be repaired. -A million hands in this State could be set at this work. It would become a habit of family life to commemorate the events of home, tne birth ot a child, a wedding, or the anniversary of either, or even a death, by these living monuments." Effects cf Irrigation. A corre spondent of the Country Gentleman says : " We have a little experience in irrigating, which we will give for the benefit of oth ers. Some seventeen years ago we col lected the water that run in a highway some distance ; run it into a small pond, and then, by ditches, over half an acre ot meadow, lhis simple transac tion cost half a day's work for two men and team, and no expense since. We are sure that we have obtained twice the quantity of hay for the past sixteen years, or in other words eight tons of hay extra in that time, worth, on an average, $10 per ton SO for $3 worth of work irri gating. The quality of the grass has also improved. It is, the larger part, now blue grass, very thick and tall, from two feet six inches to three feet above the cutter bar, which proves this grass the most re liable for irrigated meadow, as it steadily and surely runs out all others in our mead ow ; but on dry soils it is not a success with me, and we think it a waste of seed to sow it there." Webb Seeds. The seeds of cockle. chess, and other weeds that are mixed with the screenings from the fanning mill. should be carefully prevented from getting mixed with the manure iu the barn-yard. We once permitted a neighbor to run a few bags of grain through our fanning mill, and gave him the run of the bam for that purpose. When he had finished, and during our absence, he doubtless with good intentions scattered the screenings all over the barn-yard, so that the fowls might get the waste grain. This was probably intended as a sort of recompense for the use of the mill. Alas ! we never regretted more than on this occasion the doing of a favor that resulted badly for ourselves. Our manure pile was thorough ly seeded with cockle and chess, and prob ably ten years of labor will be inflicted on us before those seeds can be eradicated from the field on which the manure was spread. We mention this circumstance as a warning to others, and also as a forcible reminder to all that weed seed should be consumed with fire aud utterly destroyed. Don't feed them to poultry they won't eat cockle ; and the seeds seem to last for ever; by hook or by crook they will get into the fields somehow. Put them in the stove and you will have seen the last of them. Hearth and Home. Grooming and Feeding Driving Horses. In regard to the clothing of horses. there is much diversity of opinion. It is, however, absolutely necessary to cover warmly and protect from the cold such horses as are driven so rapidly as to cause profuse perspiration. Horses of slow work and coarse blood are generally furnished with a very thick, warm coat of hair, and readily become accustomed to endure the cold without a blanket A horse, how ever, looks much better and requires less food when blanketed, and considering the variableness and severity of our climate, the use of some artificial covering is, on the whole, to be recommended. Whenever a horse is cleaned, a careful groom will inspect his feet to see that his shoes are tight that there are no project ing clinches to wound his fetlocks, and that there be nothing wedged into the foot between the heels of the shoe, or between the shoe and the frog, which would-do in jury to the sole of the foot He will also with his pick (which is simply a short piece of iron, with a thin, pointed hook upon one end) thoroughly clean out the gravel and dirt lodged between the shoe and the sole, and examine the sides and cleft of the frog to be sure it is all right The feet of well-bred horses, kept con stantly in the stable, would become un naturally dry, hard and contracted, unless some means were taken to moisten and soften them. The best method of doing this is to fasten into the foot by strips of thin hoop-iron, pieces of thick felt cut to fit the inside of the shoe, and cover the entire sole. These pieces of felt (or they may be made of several thicknesses of woollen cloth) are wet and laid into the foot and the strips of iron pressed in be tween the shoe and the ftlt Sometimes the feet are " stopped " or filled with oil cake meU, or with cow-dung, or with clay, but the same result is more con veniently attained by the first method. In dry, hot Heather, fast-working horses un less they have flat feet and weak soles should hate the feet stuffed every night It is thoight by many to bean excellent plan to aply occasionally to all parts of the feet of horses an ointment consisting of the eqml parts of tar, lard, and bees wax, and it is probable that the hoof thus protected cries less rapidly and is rendered less brittle. Finally, the good groom will see to it that his horse is so fed and exercised as to be in the best possible condition for his work. Nether horses nor men can be preserved fa perfect health without sun shine, fresl air and exercise, and many fine animas are ruined by irregular work upon highlr stimulating food. Whenever a horse is lot employed in his usual daily task, he should be exercised at a slow pace by his groan, or at least be allowed to run for an hou or two in a clean, roomy yard. By standixg day after day in his stable the horse accumulates fat, his blood becomes heated and impure, and his tendons and muscles soft and unfit for violent exertion. At the sane time he becomes restive for want of eiercise, and with his belly full of food is liatle to injure himself whenever he ii takei out even though he have a driver sufficiently careful to restrain him, which is not often the case. In this country it is customary to feed horses three times during the day, and in most cases it is better to give a feed of grain or roots at noon than to omit it The stomach of the horse is small, and in a natural sute he eats the greater part of the time, laving down but seldom except a few hours &t night, and requiring but lit tle sleep. In domestication, however, he receives more concentrated food, and re quires less time for eating; and he exer cises mora and consequently demands more repose. Horses which perform ir regular, light work, like those employed by physicians, may be kept in excellent condition if properly fed morning and evening ; but those which engage in con stant seveie labor for several hourj after the food hat passed from the stomach, are very apt to at too greedily when fed, and to have attacks of colic and other disor ders of the digestive system. The amount and kind of food given to a horse should correspond somewhat to the work requind of him, and yet he must eat though he do nothing. Coarse, hardy horses may live, and work after a sort, upon hay and grass, but high-bred animals will scarcely subsist upon such bulky in nutritious food, and of course should never be expected to do any thing more. It is now generally conceded that valuable horses ought to receive some grain or roots every day, wiether at work or not as it is well known that it requires careful train ing for several months, to restore a horse which has been running in pasture for some weeks, t : -condition. Still it must be remembered that a horse can no more be kept in perfect trim for the fastest work all the time, than a bow can always be bent without losing its elasticity. The importance of occasional relaxation from hard labor for both man and horse is too often overlooked or postponed, until dis ease renders it indispensable. With a proper regard to variety in food and to the real health and ability of the animal, now frequently neglected, so long as the daily work isdone,the horse would not only look and feel much better, but would last much longer in complete soundness than he now does. Sudden changes from green food to dry, or the contrary, must be made with great caution, and there is more need of men tioning it in this country, because fortu nately the almost universal English habit of giving physic to horses once, twice, or three times, when such changes are made, is nearly unknown here. In most cases simple loosening of the bowels by means of bran mashes and changing the food gradually, will be sufficient to prevent in jury to the horse, provided he bo exercised prudently after Iking some time at grass. The rapid drvine up of his fluids by the use of bard food, the heating of his legs aud feet in the stable, and the relaxed con dition fo his joints and muscles, all render him very liable to inflammations and strains at the time. The preparation of fast trotters or road sters for matches, or for rapid driving, consists in removing superfluous fat which obstructs the action of the lungs and heart and inert ases the weight ; and in harden ing the muscles and tendons. The princi pal means to be relied on, are physic, sweating, exercise, rubbing and hard food of the best quality. President W. 8. (JiarKt Keport on Morse. Packing Eggs. There is a mode of packing eggs by which they may be saleiy earned any dis tance, and over rough roads, without dam age. And there is another mode by which half of them may be very easily broken. The secret lies in solid packing, with an elastic material between the layers. We have watched many barrels of eggs opened without a single broken one in them ; and many badly packed, which we would not have handled had they been given to ns for nothing. The proPer mode of packing, either in barrels, boxes, or baskets, is io place first a layer of long hay or straw three inches thick in the bottom. On this scatter an inch in depth of cut hay or straw, or chaff or oats, or whatever pack ing is used ,- then place the eggs on their sides, not touching each other, and wnen the layer is complete, spread over them and between them the cut stuff -or chaff two inches deep. Press this down gently with a piece of board, and put another layer of eggs, taking care that they do not toucn each otner, oi tne sides ot tne Dar rel or box ; again fill up the layer of pack ing, and press down as before. When the barrel is fall, place a layer of long hay or straw on the top in such quantity tnai me lid must be pressed down with considera ble force to go into its place, i ne eggs will then be solidly packed and will not become loose, and will stand considerable jarring without damage ; but if they were loosely packed, each little jar would cause them to strike against eacn otner, inereDy breaking the shells. Hearth and Home. How to Plant a Maple Grove. The sugar maple is easily raised from its seed, which ripens in October. The seed is sometimes planted immediately in beds of finely pulverized earth and cover ed three-quarters of an inch deep, when it will sprout early the following spring; but with a warm, moist fall it is apt to grow before frost and thus be destroyed by the winter; and perhaps it is better to gather the seed when ripe, mix with dry sand, place in a cool cellar, and sow cariy me following sorir e. The seedlings at one year old should be transplanted into the nursery rows, two feet apart, and the plants eight inches in the row. In two years they will be from four to six feet high, and are then ready to transplant into the forest rows. But many thousands of young plants may be found on the out skirts of maple woods, where cattle do not browse them. Those are better for being transplanted into the nursery rows and grown for two years before planting in forest The sced3 are sometimes planted direct ly were intended to grow in the forest rows ; but this is not a good way, as it in volves much more labor fo keep them clean and the growth will be slower. The land to be planted should be put un der good cultivation and worked in some hoed crop, for a few years after transplant ing the maples. When the young trees get a good start, seed down with orchard grass, which will grow in shade, or can be cut and fed green or cured for hay. It may be pastured when the trees are too large to be injured by cattle. The crops will pay for all cultivation and expense of trees for the first five years. Now wnen ready to set the young trees in the forest rows, draw straight shallow furrows, north and south, twenty feet apart, and set twelve feet apart in the fur row, and you will have 183 trees to the acre. Allowing for some loses, you may have 2,000 trees on twelve acres. These trees, with proper attention, will be twelve inches in diameter twenty years from set ting ; after which you may make one p3und of sugar per year from a tree for the next tenyears. Estimating sugar, on an average, to be fifteen cents per pound, and we have f 300 per year; but aeduct- ing f 100 for labor, leaves $300 per year, I or l a,uuu ior ten years, mis will pay all arrears of interest up to this time ; and henceforth thi twelve acres of maple grove will pay the interest on $ 300 per acre, with a constantly increasing value of timber.

Walker's Vinegab Bitters are effecting the most astonishing enres of indigestion, biliousness, nervous weakness, rheumatism, scrofulous disorders, and chronic constipation that the world has eTer witnessed. Prussing's Vinegar. As the pickling season is now at hand, and many housekeepers are concerned about get ting Vinegar that will keep their pickles, we deem it our duty to inform our readers that Prussing's Vinegar is admitted by all who have tried it to have no superior in the mar ket for this purpose. Mr. Pnueing warrants his Vinegar to be free from all poisonous acids, with which many vinegars are adulter ated. His works are the largest of the kind in the United States, and owing to the extra quality of his Vinegar, it is rapidly supersed ing all others with the city and country trade. Dealers and consumers should not fail to ask for it when replenishing their stock. Spring field (III) Journal. Trade generally is not active, but there are exceptions to this rule. Houses that gain their popularity by selling everything cheap, like J. V. Farwell & Co., of Chicago, are al ways busy. D. B. Fisk & Co. Have made large preparations for the fall trade. Mr. Fisk, the senior partner, has been in Europe during the summer, buving of the leading manufacturers there, silks, velvets ribbons, laces, flowers, etc Their thorough acquaintance with the wants of the Western trade enables them to offer the most attract ive assortment of Millinery, Straw and Fancy Goods and Ladies' Furnishing in this country. The oldest, largest, and most complete Milli nery house in the West, leading all competi tors in the amount of their sales bv a long stride, they purpose, by upright dealing, and by always keeping the largest and choicest stock, to maintain the pre-eminence they have so honorably won.

The extraordinary incr ase that has taken place in the sale of Hostetter's Stomach Bitters during the past yeir. Is another proof that an intelligent p op'e, although they may try all things, hold Cast only to that which Is good. Ho amount of puffery can lift inferior articles to the position of standard specifics. To use the words of Tom Paine, they may go np like a rocket, but are sure to come down ignom!niously like its extinguished stick. Hundreds of such nostrums have gone np and enme down since the Introduction of Hostet ter's Stomach Bitten, nearly the fifth of a century ago. Yet it still remains the supreme tonic of the age. It has not, and never has had a rival in ef- fic cy or popularity, and now stands at the head of all proprietary remedies manufactured on this side of the Atlantic. In every civilised community on this continent, or in South America, it la the accepted remedy for dyspepsia, bilious com plaints, constipation, general debility, nervous weakness, a d many other unpleasant or danger ous maladies. A medicine so widely extended Is of course pirated and Imitated by dealers without conscience or integrity; Therefore, let every man and woman who de signs to purchase the genuine Hostetter's Stom ach Bitters, see to it that they have what they pay for, and not the results of an infamous Impos ture. Look carefully at label, stamp, and name blown in the glass, and do not forget that the true bitters Is sold in bottles only.
