FAEM AND HOUSEHOLD.
Curative Information. If a living insect enter the ear it may "The Farmer's Review" men tions, be stupefied by a few puffs of tobacco smoke or di owned and float ed to sight with warm water. Or a drop or more of sweet or castor oil will cut off its power of breathing and mi-ehief* Bleeding from a severe cut may be stopped by tying a bandage over th cut quite tightly. The powder from a puff ball applied to the cut, which is then bound with a bandage, will quickly arrest the bleeding sugar, powdered copperas, or spider's web will also stop the flow of blood? If the blood comes in spurts an artery is cut, and the bandage should be above the wound otherwise the band age should be below it when the bleed ing is severe. There is said to be no better medi. cine for persons who are troubled with biliousness and liver complaint then lemon 311 ice It excites the liver, stim ulates the digestive organs, and tones up the system gpnerallv. It is men tioned as a cutefor sick headache, the ]ince of halt a lemon being put in a glass ot water, without sugar. Lemon juice and susar, mixed very thick, is useful to relieve coughs and sore throats. "The Western Rural" publishes a Hint about Health which not only costs nothing but has the added ad vantage of saving money for those who act upon it "Do what we may for pure air, water and food, people will never be well, so long as they con tinue to diench themselves with drugs, nostiums, and 'realth' waters, 'ton ics' and stimulants of every kind that enteipusmg manufacturers and drug gists lecommend in their ingenious and plausible rhetoric. Whatever the show window or placard invites you to 'try' under some taking title or pre tence, refer it to a judicious physician, and then if he says take itdon't." A correspondent writes that he had long been troubled with an inactive liver, which gave him a world of pain and trouble, until he was advised to take a glass ol hot water with the juice of half a lemon squeezed into it, bur without sugar, night and morn ing. He tried it, and found himself better almost immediately. His daily 1 headaches, which medicine had Eailed to cuie, left him, his appetite improved, I and he gained several pounds in weight within a few weeks.Good Housekeeping. Clothing for the Children. New Yoik Tnbune. There has been a revolution public taste in the past dozen years, and even ultra-fashionable people dress their children in a most sensi. ble manner and in simpler styles. This change is due to the introduction of English fashions, which are preferr ed by the best dressed people to the more elaborate French styles. The influence ot the aesthetic movement on taste in England has gone far to ward making the worst dressed na tion under the sun the best dressed nation and the leader of taste. Nothing prettier and simple can be imagined than the little aesthetic English hocks now worn by children. American flannels have attained a perfection ot weave that makes them' the first choice for a lit tle girls' dresses. Bright navy-blue and golden brown flannels made up in English fashion are simply trimmed with a cluster of tucks around the full gathered or kilted skirt, and a narrow white ruche at the neck and sleeves of the plain short-waisted round waist make the prettiest school dress for a little girl of eight to ten, and the same style may be adopted for older and younger children. Children's dresses are no longer worn very short, but reach low enough to cover the knee well, while little girls of three and four vears should wear dresses reaching to their ankles. Black stockings are the invariable choice and good woolen hose with double knees may be put chased as low as fit ty cents a oair and up ward, aceoi'dins to si/e. Tne children of sensible mothers no longer wear cotton stockings in winter, out knit or woven stockings of wool. Heavy leg gings should be piovided for girls and little boys, so that the child can go into snow banss and enjoy to the full that exmlaration of spirit that comes with ouc-door exercise in the keen winter air. Little wristlets knit of wool should be provided for children during the winter if their wool mittens do not extend high over the wrists. White aprons which completely cover the dress save flannel dresses from frequent washing. There is no great difficulty in washing good colored flannel dresses if they are simply made. They can be laundried in cold water as easily as cotton goods can be ashed, but servants can seldom be trusted to do this work. It re quiies the supervision of the mistress. What to Do with Lovers' Gifts. From the Baltimore Sun. It is surprising how practical an en thusiastic lover may become under changed circumstances. For instance a correspondent writes to know if a lady should return presents of jewelry after an engagement to be married is broken. If sne is not impelled by eti quette to return the gifts, he desires to find out whether they can be recover ed by process or law. He says that the lady and gentleman in question have since mar led ot her persons, and he -implies that he don't like to see an other man's wife wearing jewelry. As to the point of etiquette involved, a ^young man who has a great deal of ex perience in such matters, says that gifts of jewelry should always be re- *k turned, as this is the prevailing cus tom in polite society, and is a rule oft conduct based on natural good taste" land delicacy. Parlor Monstrosities. Good Houskeeping. Never buy anything for the home that doesn't combine one or both of the qualities, use or ornament. It is often surprising to notice that many beautiful things are inexpensive. fill one's parlor with dust-catching card-boards and wools, that if fairly pretty to begin with, soon accumulate dust, it is neither useful nor ornamen tal. Gilded rolling pins, shovels, etc., are also valueless. A Knous' Ma donna, a photograph of which may be purchased for fifty cents, framed in a quiet style of frame for a dollar, will give one more lasting satisfaction than a whole roomful of gilded dustpans, ribbon-tied bread towels and all the other senseless things. Comfort for the Feet. We question whether it is wise to wear loose, flapping slip, pers whieh allow the foot to spread and widen until it loses all the hope of presenting a trim appearance in a nice boot, for there are women who have, to use their own words, fa voied their feet until their dread of dressing up" lies in the misery of wearing a buttoned boot. A change from slipper to boot or even from one pair of boots to another will rest tired feet more than would be imagined by one who had never tried it. Bathing the feet at night is recommended for relieving the discomfort of burning feet, and washing them inasolutionof borax will also lessen any irritation. New England Farmer. Crowing Potatoes. A farmer in Massachusetts gives the following as the results of his ex perience in growing potatoes during several years past: "1. Whole potatoes will produce a crop a week or ten days earlier than those which are divided. 2. Small whole potatoes will produce results as good, if not better, than large ones. 3. The seed end is the better one to plant, because it starts with more vigor and produces more and larger potatoes. 4. A large piece is better on ordinary soil than small pieces or eyes. 5. Potatoes with sprouts long enough to break off in planting are not so good as those with eyes ad vanced just enough to indicate vigor. 6. The form cannot, as a iule.be changpd by planting any particular form 7. Two distinct varieties won't mix in the same hiU. 8. The more we investigate the scab the less we know about it." Farming Brevities. l^oots are excellent for sheep in win ter, and aie especially important with heavy grain feeding to keep the diges tive organs in full vigor. As soon as the crop shall have been removed from the garden plot plough it, and allow no weeds to grow, which will greatly lessen the garden work next season. It is a mistake to suppose that sour, fermented slop for hogs is better than a fresh mixture that is sweet and clean. Sunflower seed is often fed to poul try, but if too much be given it will cause the feathers to fall off, as it pro motes early moulting. Tea yeais ago a new milch cow at this season of the year was not sala ble property, but now the milkmen will go far to buy one.Connecticut Farmer. If it were possible to double the products of every acre under cultiva tion there would be no increased profit in the achievement, because mar kets would be gutted but if half the acres now tilled were withdrawn from cultivation and products doubled on the remainder, there might be very great profit.Elmira Husbandman. As an item of proof that "The Thoroughbred Cattle Business is Much Overdone" we note the state ment of a Kansas farmer who says the same number of animals of equal qualities for which four years ago he paid $10,000 would not to-dav sell for $3,000 A farmer 111 Douglas county, Illinois, is delivering at 6 5 cents a crop of 1,500 bushels of wheat which he raised four years ago and refused to sell at 1.10. Another farmer in the same county is said to have on hand, in an utterly unsalable condition, 3,000 bushels of corn of the crop of 1881 for which he refused 80 cents a bushel. Cattle Arriving at Chicago. Persons read the market reports of the number of cattle and hogs weekly arriving at Chicago and yet have a very limited ide of the immensity oi those herds. The number of cattle which arrive in that city for the three weeks ending August 20th was about 160.000 head. Did any one ever see a drove cattle of 1,000 head passing along a public thorough fare? It would have to be, to drive safely and successfully, divided into about twenty sections of fifty htiad in each section. Otherwise the cattle would crowd together, blockade the roads*, break down the bridges and crowd down the fence3 along the road. To drive comfortably and safely each section would require at least sixteen rods. Drovers, however, recom mend twenty rods. But at the first named distance one thousand head will stretch along the public highway one mile. At the same distance apart the 160,000 head named woulU crowd one continuous public highway tor one hundred and sixty miles, or from Council Bluffs to Mitchelville, or from Des Moines to within fifteen miles of Davenport, nor would this fully im press the mind as to the v^stness. But if you were in your carriage hast ity wending your way westward and should meet the head of this column crowding and surging forward to the Chicago market and you should be compelled to sidetrack until the herd passed, you would have to wait about twelve days for the 160,000 to wend their surging and hooking column past. To stand hour after hour, day after day and week after week and witness this three week's Chicago sup ply of beeves would give any one a clear idea of the immensity of these herds. And this is only three weeks supply. How to Fatten Hogs. New York Sun. To fatten hogs, corn at 4 0 cents per bushel is cheaper than wheat at 7 0 cents. If corn is scarce and dear you should endeavor to get as much pork out of it aspossible.andnotwasteitby deeding whole or on the ear. The late George Geddes of this State, a farmer great experience, referring to this mat ter of feeding hogs, said "I find if I take ten bushels of corn meal and wet it in cold water, rend feed twenty-five hogs with it, they eat it well but if I take the same quantity and cook it, it doubles the bulk, and it will take the same number of hogs twice as long to eat it up, and I think they fatten twice as fast in the same length of time. By cooking you double the bulk and value of the meal." Mr. Joseph Sjillivant of Ohio made many experiments in or der to determine the best and most profitable mode of fattening hogs with cocn, and he concludes that nine pounds of pork from a bushel fed on the ear, twelve pounds from raw meai, thirteen and a half pounds from boil ed corn, sixteen and a half pounds from cooked meal, is no mce than a moderate average which the feeder may expect to realize from a bushel of corn under ordinary circumstances. AH the soft and unripe corn may oi course be fed to hogs on the ear, but the sound and dry should be shelled, ground, and then cooked before feed ing if you aim at making cheap pork out of high priced-grain. The Varieties of Strawberries. President J. M. Smith, of the Wis consin Horticultural Society, one of the largest and most successful straw berry growers in the country, is re ported by "The Farmers' Review" as saying, apropos of New "Varieties, of which during his time "probably not less than 1,000 have been brought out with a great flourish of trumpets only to be discarded a little later "Don't be in a hurry to get these sorts recommended by this man or that wait till reliable growers in your vicinity, or some men you know are reliable, have tried them. You can raise varieties that will answer your purpose from the kinds now in use. If# you like to experiment with new varieties that come aiong you will find plenty of use for your time and money, and, by the way, get very lit tle return for either." He Didn't Call Again. A Brooklyn young man with a mod. est bank account and bright pros pects, but without the remotest de sire to become a benedict, at least at present, thinks he met the great crisis of his life this summer. "I won't men tion any names," he said, "as I tell the story simply as a joke on me. You know I want to have my fling. I like to take young ladies to the theatre and opera and to dancing re ceptions. I am particularly fond of having a bright young creature beside me when I take an afternoon drive. Well, I met a charming young woman of about 3 0 at Saratoga. Her folks were there. On my third drive with her we chatted quite affectionately, and as we parted for the evening she tenderly said- 'Do you care if I tell my mamma of your affection for me?' I am 2 0 years old, and if I live to be 80 I never expect to be floored as I was when that question came creep ing in my ears. She, bles3 her, knew that a man can only be happy with a charming woman for his life compan ion, but I wasn't quite ready to be convinced. I stammered that per haps it would be advisable to defer informing her mamma until I called again. I left the springs the next morning on thefirsttrain, and haven't seen my fair questioner since."New York Sun. Afraid to Ride When Mrs. Cleveland Held the Reins. From the Philadelphia Record. There was a bit of anecdote con nected with the delightful episode of the visit of the mistress ot the White House to Philadelphia, which is related at the expense of the gallant commander of the United States army.Gen Sheridan. When ail of the seats in thetallyhohad been taken except one, and Mrs. Cleveland had mounted the driver's box and was ready to give the horses their beads, Gen. Sheridan was invited to occupy the vacant seat. "Who is to drive us'" asked the general, as he glanced up at the fair occupant of the driver's seat. He was informed that Mrs. Cleveland would hold the ribbons. "Then I'll go into the next carriage." said the* hero of Winchester, who had faced many a belching battery with out a tremor, but who hesitated at the prospect of a tumble in a ditch, so President Roberts, of the Pennsylva nia Railroad, climbed into the vacant seat and was whirled safely to the de pot, while the man who had made the most dashing and reckless ride of the war to save his army was drawn se dately in the rear. .&3Z There are in the world four great masses, or accumulations, of gold, all of which are partly in coin and part ly in bullion. The amounts may be stated approximately, for this coun try on the 1st and for the others on the 8th of September, as follows: United States Treasury, $282,000,- 000 National Bank of France, $237.- 000,000 National Bank of Germany, $107,000,000 Bank of England, $100,000,000 total, $726,000,000. Advice to Young Men. From the Sunday World. The world is older than you by several years for thousands of years it has been full of better and smarter young men than yourself when they died the globe went whirling on and not one man in a hundred million went to the funeral or heard ot then death. Be as smart as you can of course, know ar much as you can. Shed the light of your wisdom abroad to the world, but don't try to dazzle or astonish anybody with it, and don't imagine a thing is simple be cause yon think it is. Don't be too sorry for yonr father because he knows so much less than you do. He used to think he was as much smartei than his father, as you think you are smarter than yours. The world haa great need of young men, but no greater need than young men have of the world. Your clothes fit better than youriath er's fit him they cost more money they are more stylish. He used to be a^ stiaight and nimble as you are. He, too, perhaps thought his father old fashioned. Your moustache is neater, the cut of your hair is better, and you are prettier, far pret tier than "pa." But, young man, the old gentleman's home ly scrambling signature on a check' will diaw more money out of the bank in five minutes than you could get out with a ream of paper and a copper plate signature in six months. Young men are useful, and they are orna^ ment d, and we all love them, and we could not get up a picnic successfully without them. But they are no nov elty they have been here before. A diamond is not so easily found as a quartz pebble, but people search for it all the mce intently. Episode of Whittier's Life. Tke Rev. Robert Collyer was lectur. ing in Boston at the time when Whit tier told him of tliis episode in his early life. This is something like what he said in his old quaint stvle: "When I was on the farm New Hampshire and quite young, an old friend who was vsitmg the meetmgR came to stay one night. After supoer he said to me. 'John, lad, I've some thing for thee,' and then brought out of hi saddlebags two little volume", which turned out tobeBurns'spoems. 'I think thee'il like the book,' he add ed. I had never read any poetry be fore except Friends' poetry, and thee'il know what that be' 1 began to read Burns, and was lost in wonder. It seemed as if the sky had lifted and the world widened, and I saw mankind outbide the narrow bounds of the Friends. I read on till mother came down and told me to get to bed. Next day when tho gray light was dawning I ciept down and got the volumes, and lead as long as I could. The old Friend came and said, 'Thee seems to like it I'm going further on, and I'll leave it till I come back.' That was the first revelation to me of what poetry may be and do. A good many folk find fault with Burns. They say that his poetry is impure. Does thee beleive me when I tell thee that I have not detected the least impurity in it? His genius is so great and noble that if there be blots in it they are so little that 1 don't see tbem." His How He Strengthened Memory. In the last number of Dress a writ er quotes an extended account from Thurlow Weed of how strengthen ed his memory. Mr. Weed tells that he suffered in early life from a defective memory, and that he never could suc ceed as a politician because he did not remember peop'e and incidents except as they especially interested him. To overcome tms he began a habit of. at its close, recalling everything that had happened during the day. Soon he made this resume aloud to his wife- "Every night, the last thing be fo-e retiring(one would have expect ed Thurlow Weed to have said '.roing ing to bed')I told her everything that I could remember that had hap pened to me or about me during the day Igeneraily recalled the very dish es I had had for break last, dinner and tea the people I had seen and what they had S8id the editorials i had written for my paper, giving her brief extracts of them. 1 mentioned all the letters I had sent and recened and the very language used as nearly as po^ible when I had walked or ridden. I told her everything that had come within my observation. I found I could say my lesson better and better" every day I am indebted to this discipline for a memory of some what unusual tenacity." Ceneral Beauregard. Fram the New York Graphic. A slight, low-set, ratner pudgy -look ing gentleman, with a flowing gray mustache and a goatee lengthening out his raunded face, walked up and down in the Hoffman house without anyone knowing him or paying him attention. He was not a man that anot her would turn tp look twice at, indeed there was nothing about him that would distinguish him from the ordinary hotel visitor obliged to pa?s his Sunday in New York. Tne new generation grownup around him since he,on the 12th of April, 1881, sighted the first gun that swept its charge over Fort Sumter know the littlem General Beauregardonly as a sort of historical memory,and if he passed away to morrow the young people of the north would wonder how he hs lived so long.
