Charcoal lor Sick C'attlA.
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
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
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
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.

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
'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.
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
'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

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

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

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
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.
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.
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
"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.
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.

applicants presented themselves to him.
Out of tho whole number ho in a short
timo selected one and dismissed the
"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

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.
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.
Quite recently a coroner's jury in Con
necticut where deliberating over the body
of a man whose prcdeliction for strong
drink bad brought him to a quiescent
state, nnd thoy hud just concluded to bring
in a verdict of "dolirinm tremens," when
the supposed defunct roso to a semi-re
cumbent posture and playfully exclaim
ed, "Here's one of yer jury as votes 'No.' "
The light of friendship is like tho light
