FARM AND HOME.
How to Tßt! a Ripe Watermelon. When the melon begins to change color inside, and its seeds to turn black, a small black speck, scale, or blister, begins to appear on the ou 1 er cuticle, or rind. These are multiplied and enlarged as the fruit matures. A ripe melon will show them thickly sown over the surface. A partial developement only indicates half-ripened fruit. A full crop of blisters reveals its perfect ripeness. When hun dreds of melons are strewn along the aidewalk, you will have to look pretty ■sharply to find one that exhibits a satis 'factory " escutcheon," to borrow a term from M. Guenon. But it is unfailing when found, and by following this truide you may walk away with your melon with the most entire confidence. The blister is at ly to be seen upon a close inspection, rtoit>3 plainly visible when that is given. Killing Canada Thistles. In relation to Canada thistles the Prairie Farmer advises a summer fallow aa the surest and easiest means of sub duing them when the field is clear of stumps. At a late meeting of the Elmira (N. Y.) farmers' club, where they have to battle yearly with this pest, after dis cussing mowing and the various other remedies in vogue, it was decided that this was the most successful plan. Presi dent Hoffman said : "The method recom 'mended by the secretary is the only sate one. Thorough summer fallowing will kill Canada thistles." Colonel Crooker remarked: "I agree with him in the estimate the secretary puts upon it as a means oî cleaning our fields. I have tried it for Canada thistles with full suc «ess. A certain field got so tadly over 'run with thistles that I was nearly dis couraged about subduing them, but I tried a summer fallow and it cleaned them so they have never troubled me since, and that was years ago." Pruning Tomatoes Many persons find much profit in pinching back the branches of the toma toes; and it is a good practice when ju diciously done. It may be overdone, however, and injury result. In the irst ;place, it is no use to attempt it after the flowers have fallen. The idea is to force the nourishment into the fruit at the earliest start ; for it is at that time that tne future fate of the fruit is cast. A few leaves bsyond the fruit is an ad vantage. It is only the growth that is to be checked. And then much damage is done by taking off the leaves as well as the fruit. The tomato plant needs all the leaves it can get. It is only the oranches that are to be checked in their growth. No one who has not tried it can have any idea of how valuable the leaves are to the tomato plant. One may for experiment take off most of the leaves of a plant, and he will find the flavor insipid, and every way poor. Of course, it Is the peculiar acidity of the tomato that gives it so much value to all of us ; but the acid from a tomato that hos ripened on an insufficient amount of foJiige is disagreeable to most tastes. Acreage Required for a Cow. How much land is required for the support of a cow? This question de pends for an answer so much on the cir cumstances of the soil as not to admit of a very definite answer. In a dairy com petition in Jefferson county, N. Y., in 1857, the first prizo dairy, of sixteen cows, was kept on thirty acres of land ; the second premium dairy, of eighteen cows, on sixty acres; the third dairy, of thirteen cows, on thirty acres ; the fourth, of twenty-nine cows, on fifty five acres; the fifth, of twenty-eight cows, on ninety acres. Mr. JSchull, of Little Falls, New York, estimates that the land in pasturage and hay requisite lor the support of a cow is three acres, and this is the estimate of Mr. Carrington for moderately good dairy farms in England. In Belgium ten acres of land support two oows, one heifer, and one yearling or calf; 'but when the calves are sold off young, and cows in full milk are only kept, the proportion is two cows to seven and one-half acres. Colman esti mates three acres of pasture as requisite for a cow in Berkshire county, Mass., while in some towns two acres of pastur» age are sufficient. Mr. Far ring ton, in the report of the American dairymen's association, thinks that on the average four acres are required per cow for sum mer and winter keep, while Mr. X. A. Willard thinks that in Herkimer county, N. Y., one and one-half to two acres of pasture per cow will answer, and in some exceptional cases one acre.—[Scientific Farmer. When to Ventilat« Cellars. The Kural New Yorker says : Some of our. contemporaries advocate airing cellars during the night and closing them during the day to prevent damp new. The theory is that the hot air daring sunshine holds moisture that is condensed in the coo) cellar, while at night, the temperature outside and m the cellar being more nearly alike, there is less dampness. This strikes us as bad advice, though true enough, so far as we know, as a fact. A damp cellar is not necessarily unhealthy if it is kept clean and pure. When cellar windows are opened the colder air passes out producing a partial vacuum. IThis induces the air which has been warmed by the sun's rayB to enter, when, by cooling, it is deprived of a part of its moisture and aa before passes out and thus a constant change of air is maintained. But the warm, mokture-laden air is free from the poison of those malarial diseases with which night air in valleys or low tracts is infected Carbonic acid also, the re sult in part of slow decomposition of vegetable substances, is dissipated by sunshine, while at night it accumulates in all low places, its specific gravity be ing about 1.5, while that of air is 1.0. Fer the same reason therefore, that people in what may be called miasmatic districts shouid confine themselves to the house from two hours or more before sunset until two hours or more after sun rise, they should close their cellars dur ing the same time. And the cellars should be opened and ventilated, no matter how damp they may become in consequence, during those hours when the sun shines brighest. Agricultural Notes For twenty -four hours after farrowing a sow should be fed on soft food or slops, which should be given in a warm, though not hot, state. A mash of bran or meal answers very well. An Oskaloosa farmer says : " Clover bloat, so fatal to cattle, may be cured by fastening a stick in their mouths and compelling them to hold their heads in an elevated position, the poisonous gases escaping. He says it never has failed. The roots of clover have a natural tendency to decompose after having pro duced the plant in perfection, and it is the effect of this decomposition that ren ders a crop of clover so good a prépara tion for the growth of wheat. Decay ever furnishes regenerative food, while the roots pierce and divide the soil, loos ening the ground. Cheese, as met with in the market, varies greatly in composition. Good kinds contain from 30 to 35, and inferior kinds 38 to 45 per cent of water ; .ich sorts include from 25 to 30 per cent, of f&ts and about the same proportion of albuminates. Poor cheese often contains only G per cent water. The amount of ash varies from 3 to 10 per cent. Every year milk and its products are becoming more and more appreciated. It is demonstrated by scientific investi gation that milk and flesh contain nearly the same elements—or really milk con tains all the elements of meat, and as a cow can and does produce more valuable food by her secretions of milk than a steer by his flesh, the cow is rising as an economical food producer. Mr. T. Bains, who has given much ex perimental attention to the matter, tells the London Garden that " seeds un doubtedly keep better in the capsules in which they are grown than shelled or threshed out," and he adds that " all extremes of heat or cold should be avoided ; neither should the place where they are stored be damp, nor the oppo site, too dry.' 1 GRANT ON MILITARY MEN. His Opinion of McPher«on, Meade, Buell, Logan and Other Generals. [From the N. Y. Herald's Hamborg Letter.] M'PHKRSON, MEADE, HANCOCK AND IN GALL8. I was very fond of McPherson ; if he had lived he would have come out of the war with the highest rank. His was a noble character ; all the chivalry was not ot the southern side. Meade was a good soldier and a loyal, good man. He has been criticised for not having de stroyed I^ee after Gettysburg, and the country seemed to share that disappoint ment after the battle. I have never thought it a fair criticism, Meade was new to his army and did not feel it in bis hand. If he could have fought Lee six months later, when he had the army in his hand, or if Sherman or Sheridan had commanded at Gettysburg, I think Lee would have been destroyed. His mem ory deserves to be honored among the heroes of the war. Hancock is a fine soldier. At the time he was named major general, we were not very good friends, and I had personal prefer ences for Schofield, but I felt Hancock had earned the promotion and gave his name to Stanton. He wrote me a beautiful letter on the subject, and our relations have always remained on the most cordial footing. I have great respect for Hancock as a man and a soldier. We had a good many men in the war who were buried in the staff and did not rise. There is Ingalls, for in stance. Ingalls remained quartermas ter of the army of the Potomac during all commands, and did a great work. Yet you never heard his name mentioned as a general. And yet Ingalls, in com mand of troops, would, in my opinion, have become a great and famous general. If the command of the army of the Potomac had ever become vacant I would have given it to Ingalls. Horace Porter was lost in the staff. Like In galls, he was too useful to be spared. Butas a commander of troops Porter would have risen, in my opinion, to a very high command. Young Mackenzie at the close of the war was a most prom ising soldier. He is an officer, I think, fitted for the highest commands. ROSECRAN9, MCDOWELL, BTONE AND BUELL. "There were a few men," said the general "when the war broke [out, to whom we, who had been in the army, looked for success and high rank—among them Rosecrans, Buckner, McClellan Stone, McDowell, Buell. I felt sure that each of these men would gain the high* est command. Rosecrans was a great disappointment to us all, to me especially. Stone's ease was always a mystery, and I think a great wrong was committed. I have always regarded him as very good, a very able and a perfectly loyal man, but a man who has had three er four severe and surprising reverses of fortune. After the arrest of Stone and his treat ment, his military career in our war was destroyed. I believe if Stone had had a chance he would have made his mark in our war. McDowell was also the victim of what I suppose we should call ill-luck. You will remember people called 1»'™ a drunkard and a traitor. Well, he never drank a drop of liquor in his life, and a more loyal man never lived. I have the greatest respect for McDowell's accomplishments and charac ter, and I was glad to make him major general. The country owed him that, if only as an atonement for its injustice towards him. But McDowell never was what you would call a popular man. He was never so in the army nor at West Point. Yet I could never understand it, for no one could know McDowell without liking him. His career is one of the sui prising things in the war. So is Bueli's. Buell daes not like me, I am afraid, but I have always borne my testimony to his perfect loyalty and hi» ability, Buell is a man who would have carried out loy ally every order he received, and I think he bad genius enough for the highest commands; but, somehow, he fell under a cloud." logan, warren and butler. There were in the army m two men, more loyal than John A. Logan and Frank Blair. I knew that Sherman did not mean to disparage either of them, and that he wrote hastily. Logan did a great work for the union in bringing Egypt out of the confederacy, which he did, and he was an admirable soldier, and is, as he always has been, aa honor able, true man—a peifectlv just and fair man, whose record in the army was bril liant. Blair also did a work in the army entitling him to the gratitude of every northern man and to the respect of every soldier. Warren is a good soldier and a good man, trained in the art of war. But, as a general, if you give him an order he would not act until he knew what the other corps would do. Instead of obeying—and knowing that the po»ver which was guiding him would guide the others—he would hesitate and inquire and want to debate. It was this quality which led to our disaster at the mine explosion before Petersburg. If Warren had obeyed orders we would have broken Lee's army in two and taken Petersburg. I have always regretted the censure that unwittingly came upon Butler in the James rivei campaign, and my re port was the cause. I said that the general was bottled up, and used the phrase without meaning to annoy the general or give his enemies a weapon. I like Butler, and have always found him not only, as all the world knows, a man of great ability but a patriotic man and a man of courage, honor and sincere convictions. Butler lacked the technical experience of a military education, and it i3 very possible to be a man of high parts and not be a great general. Butler as a general was full of enterprise and resources, and a brave man. If I had given him two corps commanders like Adelbert Ames or Schofield, or Macken zie, or a dozen I could mention, he would have made a fine campaign on the James and helped materially in my plan -i. I have always been sorry I did not do so. Butler is a man it is a fashion to abuse, but he is a man who has done the coun try great service, and who is.worthy of its gratitude. Wild Horses in Kansas, It is a well known fact that from time immemorial herds of wild horses have roamed over the plains of southwestern Kansas. Their origin no man knoweth. It may be dated back to the early Span ish conquest of the country. It has been exceedingly difficult to captura them, the method pursued having been to run down and lasso them with fleet horses. Latterly, however, it is found that they can be captured in herds. The method is to get up an outfit of a fast walking team on a wagon carrying pro visions and camp supplies, and three or lour riding ponies, and as many men. When a herd is found they are kept moving, no effort being made to drive them in any direction. The teams and ponies are not driven faster than a walk and every opportunity is embraced of cutting acrofs to save distance. The wild horses are kept in motion till dsrk, being given no opportunity to graze during the day. At night they are too tired to graze and will lie down. The pursuers camp, feed their horses from grain which they carry with them and are up by daylight, have breakfast and start again. This is kept up every day. Every day takes some of the scare and wild out of them ; they become accus tomed to the sight of the men on horse back and the team ; find they are not going to be hurt by them, and, tired and leg weary with constant travel and little feed, and in from eight to ten days will allow the men to ride in among them and drive them in any direction. They are then headed for the ranch and are quite tame and docile by the time they get in. They are of the pony order, such as used in the cattle business, make good riding ponies, and when thoroughly broken, good teams for light driving in that country. They sell, when broken to ride, at $15 to $25 per head, and when broken to drive at from $60 to $75 per span. A Story for Some Singers. Recently, at a social gathering, Bishop Harris was invited to sing. He declined but told the following incident as illus trative of his talent in that line : Dur ing his journey thiough Palestine, one evening after he and Mr. Spencer, wha occupied the tent with him, had gone to bed, the bishop began humming a tune of the olden time, called "New Dur ham." Mr. Spencer joined in, and the two began singing a verse of one of our familiar hymns. Before the verse was finished, a donkey just outside of the tent brayed as only a donkey in the East can bray. While the hills of Judea were sending lack the echoes of this moat extraordinary and untimely per formance of the donkey, the Arab drag oman put his head inside the tent and, apologiziag for his donkey, said: "Ha you sing one tune he think he know," Facta of Ureal Inlernt to All--.Time Money Saved, All families are interested in their family physicians. They may take quack medicines for slight ailments, but when true sicknoss comes, then must come tne family doctor. All are interested then in this matter, and every family newspaper should give them valuable information and advice. Every oae knows that, in times gone by, the great family doctors were educated in New York ani Philadelphia, but that in these days such is no longer the case. The great cities of the West, Louisville, Chicago, Cincinnati, all contain medical colleges in which the very best education is to be ob tained. The cost of this education is far less than it is in Eastern cities ; a fact of great interest to parents and guardians, and to all inter ested in medical students. Indeed, so im portant is this money question to our readers, that we must give them information which will save for themselves and their friends both time and money. In the Atlantic cities a student has to pay for two courses of lecture $155 each ; or $310 for the two. His diploma fee is $30 ; all fees amounting to $340. His board for two ses sions is $280, or $1J0 for each. His lees and beard costing $620. These facts and figures are official. In Louisville, Chicago, etc,, where the medical colleges are equally as good as they are in New York, the student pays for his two courses $65 each, or $130 for the two. His diploma fee cost $30. Ail fees amount ing to $160 for the two sessions. His board for two sessions costs $160, or $80 for each. The entire fees and board costing $320. These figures are also official, and show that the student who goes to the great colleges of the West saves fully $3u0 in the cost of a first-class medical éducation. If to this amount be added that of the increased cost of travel, it is evident that $400 would be a moderate estimate of the amount saved by him. Indeed, students residing in the New England and Atlantic States can, by going to first class medical colleges in the West, save from $200 to $3u0 in the cost of a medi cal education. Surely these great money facta cannot fail to interest every reader, and cause him to bring them to the attention of all studying or about to study medicine. Parents and preceptors will, we feel sure, thank us for this valuable information. But there are other facts now to be given of even greater interest; facts which show that a student can not only save $300 in the cost of his medical education, but that he can gain one full additional course of lee* tures. That is to say, the student will, in seventeen months, obtain three instead of two courses of lectures, and save also $300. Among the many new catalogues of medi cal colleges recently issued, that of the Louisville Medical College (Louisville, Ky.,) is exceedingly interesting. Indeed, the facts presented therein are so important that we must present them to our readers. It appears that the Faculty of the Louis ville Medical College have been also elected to fill the vacant chairs in the Kentucky School of Medicine—one of the oldest and best medical colleges in this country ; this great compliment having been extended to this Faculty on account of the triumphant success of the Louisville Medical College. As the result, this Faculty teach, in the Louisville Medical College from September to March, end in the Kentucky School of Medicine from March to July. Both of these colleges are first-class insti' tutions, both being connected, we see, with the Association of American Medical Col leges, of which the colleges at New York and Philadelphia are also members. From the fact of this Faculty teaching in these two great medical colleges, there spring some curious and interesting results. Students who enter the Louisville Medical in September or October, can, at the close of that session in February, at once enter the Kentucky School of Medicine, which com mences its session in March and closes at the end of June. In the following Septem >er or October, these students can again enter the Louisville Medical College and graduate in February. Thus having, in seventeen months, passed three complete courses, of lectures; whereas, m seventeen months, any other Faculty can give but two courses ol lectures. The student's entire fees for the three courses in these two Louisville colleges are, we see, but $187, and his board for seventeen months but $200, or $367 for the entire cost of his medical education, board, and all fees included. When it is remembered that in Eastern colleges the student gets but two courses of lectures, and has to pay for these $340, with $280 for his board ($620 in all), it will be seen that in Louisville he gets one full course of lectures more in the same time, and saves in fees and travel fully $300 ^4 great economy of time, a great saving of money, and the gaining of one entire course of lectures. Indeed, it is evident from the facts and figures afforded to the public in these cata logues, that in no other way, in no other city, and in no other Medical Colleges, can a student in seventeen months obtain three full courses of lecture-sand yet save in money fully $300. Every student or guardian or parent who reaps these remarkable facts should send at once for catalogues. It is stated in the cata logues lust issued, that all applications for them should be addressed simply to the Dean of the Louisville Medical College, Louisville, Ky. We see that five per cent, of the class are granted beneficiary privileges. We also see in the catalogues issued, that students who desire it will be educated by the graded system adopted at Harvard, Mas sachusetts. One is not surprised to read, after learning these remarkable advantages offered by this Faculty, that ninety-five students have been graduated by it in the last year. The class list as published shows students from almost every State ; the best evidence of the fact that the public throughout this country is rapidly obtaining and appreciat ing the valuable information here given to our readers. It seems only natural that so many students from the Northern States should seek in winter the mild and temperate climate of Kentucky ; for thus they escape their harsh winter weather, and return home in time for the cool Northern summer. Louisville, the geographical center of this country, bids fair to be one of its greatest medical centers. While newspapers seldora furnish the in formation which we have herein given, we are satisfied that our readers will value these interesting and profitable facte, and will agree with us in saying that all which is of interest to the family circle belongs of right to the family newspaper.

I took the tram to Birmingham at about 4 o'clock in the afternoon. My carriage companion -was a beautiful woman, and her beauty impressed me the more because of its delicate char acter, and because she was the first really pretty woman of her class that I had yet seen in England. She was just tall enough to be noticeably eo, and the noble elegance of her figure could not be con cealed by her traveling dress. This was a long garment ot soft texture and light color, buttoned from the throat to the lower hem with buttons of the same tint as that of the dress. Her hat, or her bonnet, was also of the same material, and was without ornament or any kind. In her dainty ears were small, dull gold earrings, set with turquoises, which were matched by the brooch which confined the lace frill around her lovely throat. Her eyes were blue ; her brow fair ; her mouth had the childlike sweetness which Murillo gave to the lips of his virgins; in expression her face was cherubic. She apparently had no other luggage than a smail leather bag which she put into the rack above our heads. We sat in silence, for there was no occasion of my speaking to her, and she looked mostly out of the window. Alter we had passed one or two more stations she took down the little hand bag, opened it, took out a bottle and a small silver cup, and turning herself somewhat more to the window, poured something into a cup and drank it off at a draught. I did not see what she drank, but in an instant I knew. The perfume filled the whole carriage. It was brandy; and the overpowing odor with which I was surrounded told me of the strength of her draught as well as if I had mixed her grog myself, or had joined her in a social cup- At this I was not so much astonished as I should have been two or three days before, for at the Birmingham festival I had seen, during the internal between the two parts of a morning performance, potation? of the same kind by ladies of whose respecta bility there could be no question.— [At lantic Monthly. . .Youth—" Got such a thing as a light about yer, guv'nor ?"

The recovery of digestion and the resump tion of activity by the liver, bowels and Sid neys are milestones which mark our progress on' the road to health. They speedily be ■ ome perceptible when Hostetter's Stomach Bitters i« used by the invalid. Nothing so surely and expeditiously consumes the dis tance to the desired goal. As no bodily function can suffer interruption without im pairing the general health of the system, so the system can never acquire perfect vigor, health's synonym, until that function be actively resumed. Take, for instance, diges tion, a suspension of which is invariably rectified by the Bitters. If the organs upon which it devolves grow weak, biliousness, constipation, headache, poverty of tiie blood, and a hundred olber symptoms su pervene, which indicate unmistakably the banfful general influence of dyspepsia. The disappearance of all these symptoms through the use of the Bitters shows with what thor oughness it removes their cause. C ramps and pains in the stomach and bowels, dysentery and diarrhtea are very common just now and should be checked at once. Johnson's Anodyne Liniment will positively cure all such cases and should be kept in every family.
