Buttermilk For Whisky.
The taste of the tippling public in
"mixed drinks," and even in downright
liquors, undergoes some curious muta­
tions, like fashionable taste in the mat­
ter of colors and styles but heretofore
the drinks have all contained alcohol,
whatever new name was invented lor
them. A more welcome chai-ge from
bad to good (or a more singular one) has
seldom come to our knowledge than the
preference lately developed for butter­
milk as a substititute for old "'fire wa­
ters." This applies chiefly to moderate
drinkers who patronize bars, not to the
drunkards but the sign seems a hope nl
one iu the direction of sobriety and ab­
A reporter of the Philadelphia Times,
in reply,to'inquiries about the prevailing
summer drinks, learned the following
facts from a saloon-ketper.
"Several years ago there sprung up a
rage for weiss beer, a wishy-washy sort
ofadri ik. About fifty Germans went
into the business. You could get a
br.hooner of it—a tall glass, big enough
to bathe in—for five cents. That had
its day, and then came ginger ale and
Apoihnaris, p.nd a:ter that brown stout
and "hal -arid-half." Now there is a
strong demand for buttermilk. Yes, it
is a queer drink a bar-room but it
has several recommendations. A man
miLdit drink a barrel of it if he could,
without getting tipsy. He wouldn't
raise the neighborhood shouting and
singing. He wouldn't want to tight all
the fellows in the night-car, or beat his
wi when he got home.
But only a small proportion of the
production of the dairies is absorbed by
the bar-room trade. On Bridge avenue,
above Broad street, is the principal dis
trbuting depot, where the product of
the gentle Jersey and Aiderney herds of
anu"Tiber of renowned dairymen are
disposed of. "The demand runs the
wh ofeyear round for buttermilk," said
an attenant at the dairy. "In the
winter time it is only about one half
what it is now. 1
fit were very hot now,
as it was a few weeks ago, we would
sell one thousand quarts a day. In
this sort fo weaiher we are vending
seven hundred to eight hundred quarts,
lidepen is altogether on the tempera­
ture to increase the demand and sale,
"We have many customers to whom
't is served by the advice of their physi­
cians, who recommend it in cases of
dyspepsia and kidnev diseases. We
have several doctors who buy and drink
it by the glass themselves. One phj-si
cian has sent over twenty customers
here, and all have declared themselves
benefitted by the beverage.
"I don't think the Irish are the prin­
cipal purchasers. We sell a great deal
by the quart, probably about half we
dispose of. The Germans appear to be
better customers than the Irish, who
have always been noted buttermilk
drinkers. The Germans find that but­
termilk is as good as beer, which it is
superceding. I never questioned any
of those who bought it by the glass, but
I have heard it well spoken as a remedy
and even dysentery."
This healthier taste on the part of
those who crave stimulants is by no
means a fickle whim of the season* but
has been growing for five years past.
The swinging screen-doors of scores of
bar-rooms are ornamented with the le­
gend, "Ice-cold buttermilk," and all day
long those who qu iff the beverage pass
in anil wet their throats and go decor­
ously out.

Morris, the English poet decorator,
deprecates the American love of bizarre
effects and the American tendency to
crowd their rooms with ornaments.
The Lnndon a.:ent at the Boston foreign
fair says is characteristic of him to bav
io persons seeking his advice in regard
to lurnishiiiij: "Choose something har­
monious for flo and hanging, then add
a table and cushioned t-etis around the
wall!" "His vn 1 otn-e" continued the
auent, "is, although very beautiful, quiet
in its simplicity." Yet the poet designs
ail varieties of household furniture, and
by no means confines bis attention to
textile fabrics. This advice indicates,
therefore, an intention to repress that
overcrowding to which Americans are
particularly prone.
Cows jtSria^iii£ t'rices.
At the sale of Mr. Cooper's imported
Jersey cattle cows were in good demand,
bur, the bids for bulls were not active.
Two good bulla were withdrawn, as little
more than what their beef would fetch
wa?i offered. One of the cows. Saragossa,

put up at $500 and was rapidly run up fo
$1,500 then to $2,01)0, $S3,(}K) and was fin­
ally knocked do^vn at $4,8')0. Nonpareil,
another cow of good record, sired by
Fiockwell, and guaranteed to give twen­
ty-four quarts of milk daily, was also
eagerly bid for and she brought $2,950.
The total amount realized by the sale
was $50,996 Withernsea, a 4-year-old,

The ideal farmer's horse is a horse of
good constitution and endurance, of
good disoosition, a fast walker and a
roadster, and that is the all-purpose
horse. Such a horse can be had. If a
good driver, the animal will most likely
be more serviceable in the work on the
farm. A wretchedly poor roadster is
generally poor everywhere. He is a
mope at best. But a horse tLat is active
and strong on the road, will be a good
horse, according to the present standard,
on the farm, if he is of sufficient size. In
the matter of size opinions will differ,
and it is not material whether the animal
is large or small—if not too small—if it
has the aggregation of merits which we
have briefly stated. As to endurance it
is a qualitv usually conQned in its ap­
plication to road or trotting horses, but
there is no place ia this world in which
a horse is ever put that he needs more
endurance than he does on the farm. It
is true that if he lacks that the defect
may not be as particularly noticeable
while he is at work as it, would be in the
case of a horse on the race track or on
the road. He may do all the work that
is expected of him, but farm work is
bard work, and if the horse lacks en­
durance, which is the result of a strong
constitution, he is rapidly wearing out,
and his period of usefulness ends much
sooner than it should. A good disposi­
tion, also, is of paramount importance,
not only for the good of the horse him­
self, but for the safety of those about
him. A bad dispositioned horse is al­
ways the source of danger, and if he
does no damage during his life those
who handle him are in exceptional luck.

Jersey Cattle.
The demand for imported Jersey cattle
in this country has been so great in the
last fifteen years and so many animals
brought over to satisfy it that the source
of supply ia nearly exhausted. We are
told that it i3 now difficult to find choice
Jersey cows even in Jersey. The Island­
ers have nearly ceased to keep the an­
imals for milking purposes they rear
them almost exclusively for foreign mar­
kets, chiefly the American, and they
cannot raise enough to supply the de­
mand. There are three islands in the
channel group lying off the French coast
that are the home of these valuible an­
imals—Jersey, Guernsey and Aiderney
we receive the most desirable cows—
the gentle deer-like little crea­
ture so highly esteemed
for their rich milk and its yield of gold­
en butter. The same species is found
in Guernsey, but there it is larger,
coarser and does not yield aa rich
But it would not-be a great misfor­
tune if the breed were to be entirely
exhausted in the channel Islands it has
been successfully transplanted in this
country, and been improved by the pro
cess. There are finer Jersev cows to be
found in the United States than on the
island ot Jersey. Our richer pasturage
and the general kind treatment they re­
ceive have had the effect af improving
their milking qualities, and it is prob
tote that choice animals will in the
iuture be sought after here for English

We once heard a man say he could

Jim ply crossing one variety with anoth­
er. We have cried the experiment lor
years but have had no results from
which we were satisfied with our under­
taking. We have crossed Dorkings and
Black Spanish for the purpose ofgeiting
the characteristics of the Dorking im­
pregnated with tho*e of the Slack Span­
ish. The crossing was anything but sat­
isfactory, as far as giving the flesh of the
cross the table qualities of the Dorking.
The size proved larger than the Dork­
ing. and the laying qualities were not
unlike those of the Spanish, the eggs
beintr large and chalky white in appear­
ance. But the flesh of the fowls lacked
that plui-np and buttery appearance of

A Home Made Filter.
John Michaels, in a communication to
the New York Sun, sivye:
I trust the home made filter hete de­
scribed may soon be found in every
home, for a water supply loaded with a
mass of filth}' and poisonous contamina­
tions should be rejected without hesita­
tion until cleansed from impurities by
good filter.
Purchase a common galvanised iron
pa ', which cost fifty centp. Take it to a tin
shop and have a hole cut in the center
of the bottom about the size of five cent
piece, and direct them to solder around
it a pi. ee of tin about three-tour hs of an
inch deep, to form a spout to direct the
flow of water downward in a uniform di­
rection Obtain about two quarts of
small stones at a store where mateiial
foi rooting is sold after .i go washing
place about two inches of these at bot­
tom of pa.il to form a drain.
On this place a partition of horse-hair
cloth or Canton fiinncl cut to size of
pail. On this place a layer ot animal
charcoal, sold at the wholesale chemists
as boneblack at about ten cents a pound.
Select this aboat tbe size of gunpowder
grains, and not in powder. This layer
should be three or tour inches. A sec­
ond partition having been placed, ad
three inches of sand, as clean and fine
as possible. Those within reach of glass
makers should purchase the sand there,
as it is only with that quality of sand
that the best results ca.i be obtained
On this place another partition, anj add
more fine stones or shingle—say for two
or three inches. This serves as a weight
to keep rhe upper partition in place.
Your tiiter is now complete, but not
ready for use. However careful you
may have been in "ashing the material,
a residue of dust will remain, and this
has to be gradually washed through.
For this purpose pass as much water as
pbs-ible. through the filter during the
first dav without using it. The next
day it will be ready lor use, and if my
directions have been complied with
filtered water will be always at com­
mand, not only freed from all suspen­
ded circumstances, but from color due
to matter held in solution having been
removed. I found that the yellowish
color of Croton water, which is very
difficult to remove, was entirely absent
in water passed through my filter.

of the toilette which may be needed for
years to come and is expected to make
gifts to the bride's family, and brides­

concerned, and to delray all the ex­

bered that everything costs enormously
in Mexico as compared to American
pri es, furniture and goods of all kii ds
being imported at great expense in
transportation as there are compar­
ative ly no manufactories an I no rail­
ways, and the duties are imply outra­

Although elected, I have not yet decid­

I shall do so. I have been in charge a

A Townoi Extraordinary Rapid
Albuquerque (Albukerky), the metro­
polis of New Mexico, is one of the most
phenomenal cities in the United States,
so far as rapidity of growth is concerned.
In April, 1880, the first friin of cars
reached the present town site, which
was then a body of farming land. The
town was laid out the following summer,
and thf* marvelous buildinf boom began
which has resulted in a substantial town
of fine business blocks and pleasant res­
idences, many of which would be a credit
to cities of lOOjhOO inhabitants. A large
proportion of its business houses are of
brick. The old Mexican town of Albu­
querque is a mile or more distant and at
the timeot the establishment of the new
town contained 3,500 inhabitants. It Is
estimated that the two taken together
now number in the neighborhood of lo
000 people. No town in the west, with
the exception of Leadville* has ever ex­
perienced so rapid a growth.
