A coi-reHpondont in tho Country Gen tleinnu says that nearly all animals be comes sick from improper rating. In nine caeca out of ten, tho digestion ia wrong. Charcoal is tho must efficient, And rapid corrective. It will cure in a tunjority of cases, if properly ailminiiiter cd. An example of its tine tho hired man camo in with tho intelligence that one of the finest cows was very sick, and a kind neighbor proposed the tiHual drugs nnd poisons. The owner being ill, and unalilo to examine tho cow, con cluded that the trouble came from some over-eating and ordered a teacup of pul verized charcoal given in water. It was mixed, placed in a junk bottlo, the bead hold upwards, and tho water with its charcoal poured downwards. In tiro minutes an improvement wasviHiMe.nnd in a few hours the animal wus in the pasture entiug grass. Another instance of utjual success occurrod with a young heifer which became badly bloutod by eating green apples after a hard wind. Tho bloat was so severe that the bides wore almost as hard as a barrot. The old remody, Baloiratns, was tried for pur pose of correcting the acidity. But the attempt to put it down always caused coughing, and it did little good. Half a teacupful of fresh powdered cbarcoivl was next given. In six hours all ap pearance of bloat had gone, and tho heifer was well. Action ot Potash on Fruit Trees. Dr. George 1J. Wood, in u communi cation to tho American Philosophical Society, in Philadelphia, prcKcnted the result of certain experiments made by him upon tho effect? of salts of potassa when applied to grain and fruit produc ing soils. In his view, the depreciation of the productiveness of apple, peach and quince orchards is due to the ex haustion of potash from tho soil. Sev eral of such orchards, formerly very val uable, but which with a fow years, ceased to bear much fruit, on being treated with an application of wood ashes to the roots of tho trees, becamo completely revived, producing full crops tho following year. A still more startling effect was seen in tho second yoar, under a renowal of the application. Ho cited several other in stances where tho samo results followed; in one cane where an applo orchard planted on an old orchard's site, which had never boro fruit, wus made to pro duce a good crop by tho application of ashes. Frppnroio Plant Irish Potatoes. During tho present month of Febru ary potutoes should bo planted for au early crop. The proper timo for pre paring tho ground is in this month. Break up tho ground at loast a foot in depth with the plow or spado. TIuh ex posure of tho soil to the frosts of this month will destroy the grub worms that are ofton destructive to this crop in the Spring. In February open furrows with tho plow or spade at least ten inches deep, into which put three of manure, which may bo fresh from tho stables or cow pen, if no other bo on hand. Put two or three inches of soil on top of tho manure, when the trenches will be ready for the tubors. Fill tip the trenches and make a low ridge on the top of the pota toes, which wiU give seven or eignt in ches of soil to protect them from frcez ing. If the Early Rose be tho variety planted, they will ripen from the first of May to the middle of June, whon they may be immediately planted for a second crop. The Model Farmer. Governor Hoffman iu closing hit agri cultural address at Watkins, New York, gave his views of tho model farmer : We hear much of model farming and model farmers. Ho ie a man that is cheer ful, hospitablo and kind to his neighbor, and to all toon. He is kind to the dumb brutes and seeks to promote their welfare; he cherishes tho little bird that devour the insects infesting his field, garden and trees. He keeps his farm in a good state of improvement so that it will yield an abundant increase, ho ices that his farm buildings are in goed repair and present a good appearance and that his place of abode generally shows neatness, thrift and contentment. He is religious, exercising a devout and reverent feeling towards God as the author, and bostowcr of all blessings. He is kind, indulgent to his workmen, laboring to promote their hap piness and securo their co-operation. He is faithful to his engagements, and hones ty, without grudging, to every man his due. Cherishing his practices, he is hap py in himself and beloved by all who are capable of appreciating greatness or moral worth. Spreadiud Manure. An exchange says : We think it a wrong practice, when hauling out manure in the fall or winter, to place it in heaps. It is better to spread it at once. In the first place labor is saved. Rut most important of all is the fact that much of the manure ia wasted when placed in heaps. If spread at once, it ia more equally divided than it can afterwards. We once hauled out ma nure on a field, leaving it in heaps until tbe hauling was completed. During; this time some showers fell. The land was sown to oats next spring, and on tbe spot where the heap had been the grain lodged and was spoiled. Tbe following crop was wheat, and on those spots the wheat rusted and yielded nothing, while the growth of straw was remarkable a have never since repeated the practice. Till i oun raiiKieriK.s wk i'hi.k, aisi SWEETWATER, TENi., THURSDAY, FEI. 15, 1872. Jackson nml tho Rravo. It was whlie he was Judgo that ho ar rested the notorious desperado, Bean, whom noliody else could urrest. Many of Bean's doceml-tnts are still living, and the place whero old Hickory's eyes brought him down ;s still pointed out. As tho story runs, Beau went away and left his family for two years. 'When ho returned, his wife celebrated the event by presenting him with a new born bulm. This was a new departure iu domestic economy, nnd Bonn did not accept the situation with very good grace. Ho do- tnandod an explanation, nnd in the ab sence of a satisfactory ouo, ho sharpened his knife and deliberately cut off both cars of the poor little baby, playfully re marking, as he did so, that ho wanted to distinguish it from his own. Homo thought this was an innocent proceed ing it practiclc jolco on tho baby, in fact, while others considered it nu outrage, and should bo punished. The Grand Jury took that view of tho enso and in dieted Bean ; Bean, as usual, brushed up his horse pistols, and said that they might indict, but they couldn't anost him. The Sheriff tried it and was van quished. Court came on, tho criminal docket was called, and tho cleik repor ted Bean "not taken." "What's tho mattor?" asked Judge Jack son of tho Sheriff. "Nothing's themntter, only I can't ar rest him," replied the official. "Then, by tho Eternal ! summon tho county to help yon, nnd bring him in here," thundi rod the Judge. Tho Sheriff gathered up some citizens, and ndviuiccd on Bean. Tho latter 1 a -ked himself up against a house to prevent a rear nttne!;, drew his pistols and Md them to coi.ic on. lie was a centre shot, and to have advanced would havo been certain death to some. No olio cared to sacrifice his lifo in giving tho others a chance to make a Mart Tho Sheriff reported to Jackson that Bean could uot be taken without a sacrilico of lives. 'By tho Eternal! summon tho Court!" thundered the irate Judgo, and "the Court" was summoned. Jackson refused arms, and advanced emty -handed and bearheaded upon Bonn, His friends tried to restrain him, as ho valued his life, but ho heeded to them not. Ho kept his cold cyos fixedly upon tho desperado, walked right up to him, jorked tlio pistol nwiiy, took him by tho collar and marched him off to jail. 4 Answer lo u Challenge. The eccentric II. II. Breckinridge, one of the Judges of the Supremo Court of Ponnsj -lvaniu, whou a young man, was challenged to light a duel by nu English officer, whom ho unswored as follows: 'I have two objections to Uio duel matter tho one is lost I should but t you, and tho other lest you should hurt me. I do not see what good it would Ijo to put a ball through your body. I could make no use of you win n dead for any ordinary purpose, us I would u rab bit or a turkey. I am nocanibal to feed on the llesh of men. "Why, then, shoot down S human creature, of whom I could mako no use? A buffalo would make bet ter meat; for, though your ffesh might bo young and tender, yet it wuuts tho firmness and consistency which tuko nnd retain suit At any rate it would not do for a long sea voyage. ' You might make a good bavbacuo, it is true, being of the nature of a raccoon or oppossum; but people are not iu the hab it of barbecueing anything that is human now. As to your hido, it is not worth taking off, being a little belter than a two year-old culf. "So much for you. As for myself, I do not like to stand in tho way of any thing that is hurtful. I am under the impression that you might hurt uiu This being the case, I think it tho most advisable to stay ut a distance. If you meant to try your pistols, take a tree or a barn door, about my dimensions. If you bit that, send mo word, and I will acknowledge that, if I had been iu the sumo place, you might have hit mo.-' -4 The Crows. Henry Ward Beocher says of crows: "Aside from the speciid questions of profit and loss, wo havo a warm side to ward the crow, bo is so much like one of ourselves. He is lnzy, and that is humun ; he takes advantage of those weaker than himself, and that is manlike; ho is sly, and hides for to-morrow what he can't eat to-day, showing a reid human prov idence; he learns tricks much faster than ho does useful things, showing a true boy-nature; ho likes his own color best, and love to hear his voice, which are em inent traits of lmnuinity: ho will never work when he cau get another to work for him, a genuine human trait; ho eats whatever ho can got his claws upon, and is less mischievous with a belly full than when hungry, and that is liko man; he s at war with all living things except his own kind, and with them he has nothing to do. No wonder, then, that mon despise crorfs, they are too much like men. Take off his wings, and put him in breeches, crows would make fair average men. Give men wings and re duce their smartnoss a little, and many of them wouid be good enough to be crows." An Irishman, in writing a letter to his sweetheart, asking whether she would accept of his lovo or not, writes thus: "If you don't lovo mo, send back tho letter without breaking the teal." mi ouk kkwits avi: avii.i.. maintain. Th e Mammoth Cave. Outdone. The Kantuis City 'V'ne-. says seM-rtil gentlemen recently explored a cava lato ly discovered iu Southeastern Missouri. The entrance io through a volcanic fis sure, seen feet wido by twenty feet in length, which at the distiir.ee of n hun dred yards terminates in a room named by the oxplorers "Tho But Room," from the thousands of baU that swarmed within its dark and hidden recesses; they Hew about in swarms making a terri ble noise in the arched roof abovo. This room has three sides, each with an aper ture opening into smaller caverus or side rooms. Its dimensions are fifty by one hundred and thirty feet, tho ceiling be ing about twenty foot from tho tloor. From this room u hull, four hundred yards iu length, leads to a still Inrger rp4 in the shape of a horso-shoo, which tho explorers say nature must certainly havo iuteuded for a church, siuce the roof is arched in purely Gothic style, with dome and columns, and, to finish off and make it complete, a pulpit nenr the centre. Tho walls of this magnificent cavern are ono bundled feet high, but one of tho most remarkable features about it is a fountain of pure water, four feet iu diameter. Northward of this is a room sixty feet wide, and almost filled with glittering stalactites, which hang in cu riously formed pendunts from the roof. To tho South of this is another room which should bo named the "bottomless pit,'" since it apparently has neither bot tom, sides, nor roof. Tho darkness with in this place is appalling. Turning to the East tho party walked a dibtance of about a quarter of a mile, when they camo to a llight of natural stops, forty or fifty in number, terminating in a wide platform, tho entrance to a mammoth hall, supported by Corinthian pillars of various thickness and eudlesj in num ber, ail white as snow ami glisteuing as though studded with millions of dia monds. This hall is estimated to be two hundred feet in w idth, and commu nicates with a number of passages lead ing off in various directions, iiono of which have yot been explored. Proceeding on their way tho explor ers found a river of ruuning water, is suing no one knows whence, and going, no ono knows where. It is about fifty feet wide and three feet deep. The par ty fullowed its course down stream to tho falls, where tho water goes roaring over a precipice into tho darkness bo low. Explorations on a lake showed that the noiso was mudo by u huge waterfall, where tho water falls a distunce of fifty feet. Tho luko is circular in shape, and has no vissible outlet for water. There were eight or ten dark passages found upon the banks of the hike, leading in all directions, but the guide accompany ing the exploring party lost his courugo and refused to go further. The party worothon about eight or ton miles from their starling point. They were iu tie cave forty-three hours. Pad Habits. Understand clearly tho reason, nnd all the reasons, why tho habit is injurious. Study tho subjoet until there is no ling ering doubt in your mind. Avoid tho placos, the persons, tho thoughts that lead to temptation. Frequent the places, associate with tho persons, indulge the thoughts that load away from tempta tion. Kcey busy. Idleness is tho strength of bad habits. Do not give up tho struggle when you havo broken your resolution once, twice, ten times a thou" sand times. That only shows how much need there iB for you to strive. "When yon havo broken resolutions, just think tho matter over, and endeavor to under stand why it was yon failed, so that you may bo upon yoar guard against a re currence of tho same circumstances. Do uot think it a little or an easy thing that you have undertaken. It is folly to ex pect to break off a habit in a day, which may havo been gathering strength in you for years. Truo Politeness. A poor Arab going through the desert, met with a sparkling spring. Accust nnod to brackish water, a draught from this sweet well in the wilderness seemed In his simple mind, a present to offer to the caliph. So ho filled his leathern bottle, and, after a weary tramp, laid his humble gift at his sovereign's feet. Tbe monarch, with the magnanimity that may put many a Christian to tho blush, called for a eup, and filling it, drunk freely; and, with n smilo, thanked the Arab and presented hiin with a reward: The courtiers pressed eagerly around for a draught of tho wou dcrful water, which was regarded us wor thy such a princely acknowledgment. To their surprise the caliph forbado tho in to touch a drop. Then, after the simple hearted giver loft tho royal presence, with a now spring of joy welling up iu his heart, the monarch thus expluinedtho motive for his prohibition. "During this last journey, tbe water in this leatheru bottle had become impure and distasteful; but it was an offering of love, and, as much, I accepted it with pleasure. I feared, however, that if I allowed another to taste it, he would not conceal his disgust. Therefore it wa that I forbade you to parfake, lest the heart of the poor man should be wounded." To bo always repining and complain ing is unworthy of a man; but he who is endued with virtue and satisfied with hia lot,' is truly rich andrcully good. Mil Ton Columns in u Nut-Shell. A New England merchant, doing a largo business, requiring several clerks.a short timo since tiiksed several articles of value from Lis st.rre. Ho determined to watch the habits of these young men, to il.worfT, if possible, which one, if either of llunu, was uutrustworthy. There was ono of them who appeared particularly active and faithful; his dress was inferior to that of tho other clerks, and ho was evidently not particularly popular among them. Tho merchant learned that this young man remiucd for half an hour or more after the others left, with tho door of tho store locked. This awakened his suspicions, nnd he ar ranged a plan to conceal himself iu tlio store, so that he iright discover what occurred when tho clerk supposed him self to be uuoLsiarved.. Hivifg sent the young man ou un errand just before the hour of closing, ho entered his plao of concealment. Tho door was locked as usual, at the proper time. The clerk nt mice begal to sweep and pnt the estal lishmt nt iu order. Whilo waiting for tho dust to sottlif, he w.ns seen to go be hind the counter, and taking something from beueath it, placo it in tho breast of his coat. Tho merchant was now alive to discover what had been taken, and what w as to be done with it. The young man went to tho window, and sat in si lence a few moments, apparently exam ining tho package which ho had taken from his breast. Tho merchant was not long left in doubt. His clerk soon fell upon his knees. Ho saw that it was the Bible he had been reading. And now ho offered aloud a simple and touching prayer for himself, his mother and sistor, his employer, and particularly for n brother clerk, who, ho feared, was yield ing to temptation. After he had finish ed ducting he left tho store, unconscious of having had a human eye upon him. It is easy to believo that the merchant was deeply affected by what ho had seen ftiul heard. Tho clerk's salary was in creased several hundred dollars a year, and ho was give:: tho position made va cant by the discharge of another, whoso criminal acts had been discovered. Letters of Kacommendation. A gentleman advertised for a boy to assist him in his ol'ico, and nearly fifty applicants presented themselves to him. Out of tho whole number ho in a short timo selected one and dismissed the rest. "I should like to know," said a friond, "on what ground you selected that boy, who had not a singlo recommendation." "You nro mistaken," said tho gontle mag; "ho had a great many. Ho wiped his feet when he came in, and closed the door after him, showing tlmt ho was careful; ho gave up his seat instantly to that lame old man, showing ho was kind and thoughtful: ho took off his cap when ho camo in, and answered my questions promptly nnd respectfully, showing ho was polite; ho picked up the book which I had purposely laid upon tho tloor, nnd replaced it on tho table, while nil the rest stopped over it or shoved it asido; and ho waited quietly for his turn, in stead of pushing and crowding, shoeing that bo was orderly. When I talked with him. I noticed that hisclothes were carefully brushed, his hair in nice order, mid his tcoth brushod; and whon ho wrote his name, I noticed that his finger nails wore clean, instead of being tipped with jet, liko that handsome little fellow's in tho blue jacket. Don't yon call those things letters of recommondation ? I do, and I would givo more for what I can tell about a boy by using my eyes ten minutes, than all tho fine letters ho can bring me." -- How Warner Ciot His Nymp'j. Wagnor, the great German Composer, has great influence with the King. Tho following incident is given to prove it: The now opera of "lihoingold" was performed for tho first time in Munich on tho '27th of August, 18G'J. As in the case of the "Master Singers" tho King donated an extraordinary amount to do fray tho expenso of preparation. Wag ner conceived tho idea that his Rhino should not be porsouated by rolling, painted vanvass, but that a veritable stream of water must flow across the stago. Then came a dubious thought; as tho scene requires a nymph to swim from ono rocky shore to the other by the light of a sotting sun, who was to do it. Tho part was to bo takon by Fran loin Mtllinger, nnd Wagner hit upon the brilliant idea of causing tho King to or der the lady to tuko swimming lessons. Sore Eyes. The following reoeipt for the oure of inflamed eyes is given : "Take a potatoo, and after quartering it, gtate tho heart as fine as possible, and place tho gratings be tween pieces of cambrio muslin. Place the poultice over the eyes inflamed, and keep it there 6 ft eon minutes. Continue the operation three successive nights and a perfect cure ensues." It ia worth try ing by those afflicted with sore eyes.
