A writer in the Journal of Agriculture 5vArt what hfl considers a verv superior method of making a liquid manure wilh nnnt and stable manure, a gooa cass is employed and also a smaller vessel, likfl a half barrel, or something even smaller, with loose, open joints through which the water wm pass, xne latter, nftftr it is filled, is intended to be placed in the cask, and the space surrounding it to be filled with water. Take the half barrel and put in first a spadeful of manure and pack it closely down to the bottom and around the sides, so as to form a cavity that will hold a pint or more ol gooa Boot from tne top ox a chimney where coal fires are kept burnt; next add another laver of manure. pressing it close round the sides as be fore, then more soot, ana so on uutu full, when a plate or tile should be placed upon the top to prevent it float W. Nnw insert this in the cask. The Smaller vessel may be supported at the height of the cask by bricks piacea on the bottom of the cask, or by a pair of bandies, consisting of two straight sticks securely fastened at its top and by which it mav be earned, nil up tne pnst with water, let the smaller vesse for three or four days, lifting it out a few times during the interval to drain; then lift it out altogether ana support it on two Bticks across the top and pour a few canfuls of fresh water to wash out by displacement the manure left in it, and when sufficiently drained the contents may go back to the manure riAftn for further decomposition, or be maA& tira of in anv other way. The solution thus obtained forms the Btock pot, and may be diluted to any extent according to circumstances. It may be used either alone, of almost any strength, nr it mav be further enriched by the ad dition of about a teaspoonful of the sulphate of ammonia to each gallon of liquid. Or, on the other hand, a very good substitute for guano will be formed by introducing a solution of chloride of lime in the place of ammonia. The chloride solution 18 made by adding two ounces of the dry powder to a wine btttle (twenty-four ounces) of water, shaking well up several times before using. From one half to one ounoe of this liquid to be added to each gallon and given to stocks.' nrimulas. primroses and nu merous other soft stemmed plants, will be found highly efficacious." Milking Machine In answer to an inauiry, the Arneri- nan Culiimitor replies that many at tempts have benn made to construct nuchines by which the milk could be trawa now the cow's bag with the same facility and completeness as it' could; be drawn by hand, but so t far as our knowledge and, obseivation extena, without any practical success, xt is innnnoail hv TnftTiv that the milk is re tained in the cow's bag through atmos- . i t i pheno pressure alone; wnicn, nowever, is not true, since tne cow is ame u control this flow to a great extent. If the cow dislikes the person employed in milking, or his maimer of drawing the milk, she will not only rerase.to let down the fluid but, by persisting in the offm-fr mill Roon drv nn the buddIv. The I?uvav " J A " V . v - . udder of the cow is composed not only of a bmdie ol miiK vtins dui aiso oi nerves. The aperture m tne teat oi tne cow varies in size with each animal milked. In the case of some cows this aperture is large and the milk can be drawn away very rap idly, while in other cows the aper ture is small and any attempt to draw the milk from this latter class of cows as rapidly as from the former, will be attended witn muon pain upon tne part of the abused animal,andadetermi- .. . ..I i 1 1 1 1 nation on ner part tonoia Dacatne bus, This defect in the size of the aperture of the cow's teat is one which no ma ihinA nan Aaif o.L bnt one which human hand readily observes. Immediately upon its disoovery the humane milker ia1l7au bin efforts in forcing away the milk. It is the smallness of this aper ture which stamps the cow as a hard milker. The observant dairyman soon learns that when he draws too hard the milk nnsHAH back to the bag. In such a case his efforts must be so relaxed tw tli a milk will come awav easily though slowly. Again, when there is inflammation in the cow's udder, the careful milker readily detects it, and quickly sets about witn measures to TAdnoA the inflammation and relieve the cow. ' By the use of no macnine couia - such a difficulty be detected, and seri ous consequences might be the result of irmnfcinA m akin A great many bags would be permanently ruined and many cows die or milk lever, wnicn wouiu ue saved to the owner where milking by hand prevails.

And so, in this connec tion, he who has to milk a cow, and do it waII and nronerlv. should know at least the character and construction o; the cow's bag. Recipes. fVrp Prmnrva.

The work of the Methodist Church in Italy is progressing with remarkable rapidity and encouragement. , "Evangelical Association . in behalf of the German Protestants in America," ban bAAn formed in Bremen, Germany. The Rev. D. D. Come, oi tne uen tAnarr Methodist Enisoopal church. St. Johns, N. B., has received a call to the church at Denver, Uoiorado, at a salary of $5,)00 a year. Eex-Governor Dingley, of Maine, re cently elected to Congress, is an active member of the Congregational Church in Lewisto n, of which Senator Trye (whom he succeeds) is also a memDer. In California the Episcopal clergy number fifty-four; parishes and mis sions, forty ; Sunday school scholars, 8,275 ; baptisms last year, 610, of which 113 were adult ; connrmauons, ooi , communicants, 3,602; offerings, $94, 842.

The South Congregational Sunday school of New Britain, Connecticut, pays its superintendent a regular salary, and he devotes his whole, time to t.hA int.ATARtfl of the school, visiting families, looking after absent scholars, etc. It is the largest f rotestant sun day school in the State, and numbers about 1,000 members. Religious Tramps. "That man is a religious tramp." said Manager Bunting, of the Christian Home for Intemperate Men. ine man had.apparently just passed middle life. He can sing finely, pray earnestly, and exhort eloquently. I wish I could talk as well as lie can." "Why do you call him a religious tramp." "I will explain, xnere are religious tramps just the same as there are tramnn who nrev upon the general public, and who are honest enough to make no pretense oi religion, xnese religious tramps are known to every evangelist, clergyman ana pniiantnro- pist. They haunt gospel temperance meetings, make religious proiessions in the meetings of the Women's Christian Unions, and are present at the mission rooms,and when one city fails to afford them further pecuniary relief, they start on the track of a temperance orator, or follow up some revival move ment, visiting all parts of the country. God is not deceived. ,We are not de ceived. Many just such men, however, have been saved, and have led useful lives." "You do not mean to say that these religious tramps are ever sincerely con verted?" "It is a fact Because it is, so these man are asked to come under Christian influence. To be sure, many of them will not reform. They love their miserable drunken life. I have taken men Into this home, cast their ragged clothes into the ash-box, given them baths, a new suit of clothes, and sobered them up. Often they have secured good places but, before giving a day's application to their duties, they have deliberately gone back to Chatham and Baxter street dens and imbibed poison to that extent that my next knowledge of them is that they are on Black well's Island shoveling ashes. Men have been through all this and then reform, It is a rare exception, however." What is the right side of this relig ious tramp picture?" - "These men have one common plaoe of meeting. It is generally in a back room of a groggery of the lowejit des cription. I recall one particular place in Chatham street where hundreds of them congregate, because I have had occasion to snatch men from its influ ence. In this place can be found men who were born tramps. The surround ings of their lives have been such that they could not help following a vicious course, almost from the cradle to the present. Associated with them, linked together by the common tie of misery, are young men whose parents are hon orable, respectable and wealthy citizens. Drink has led them into errors, and into the committal of crime. They have gone down step-by step in the social scale, until to-day they subsist almost entirely on liquid poisons, mere semblances of humanity. Some of them have been cast off from parental recognition; in some instanoes tney draw a specified amount' of money from bomA at reo-nlar intervals. I have nut just such men on their feet again, and for years past 1 nave been Diessea in knowing that they are enjoying the confidence of their families, filling good situations and leading Christian lives." One of these men. who has been for aome time leading an honest life, has a good situation in a busmess house, and looks on his past career as a ter rible nightmare, was asked : "What led vou to put yourself under Christian influenoe?" "Religion was far from my tnougnts when I took the first step to sober up. My sole object was to secure a new suit of clothes in place of the 'hand-me-downs' I was then wearing." . "What do you mean , by hand-me-downs?" "Hand-me-downs are obtained in this way. A man in a temporary in terval of soberness secures a new suit of clothes,say worth about $30. As he has no money to purchase more whisky, he enters a Baxter street second-hand clothing shop. Possibly he is in a drag ged condition. He receives an old worn suit in plaoe of his new one, and not more than a dollar or two be sides. Very likely he fails to remem ber the place, and the recovery of his good suit of clothes, when he comes to his reason, is a matter of impossibility. Well, I had heard that I could go to some evangelist, concoct a good etory about desire for repentance, talk and pray, and I would secure my new clothes and a month's board. I tried the plan. I did not want religion. I did not believe that 1 could De savea. In a few weeks I was in my right mind. Good influences nad begun tneir wor& upon me. I was ashamed of my deceit. I confessed my purpose to defraud. The kindness shown me, the convio- tion that came to me that I could re form, brought with it the determina tion to do so, and I can only look back at my past course with horror." Another man wno bad once been nmlAv f!hrintian teachings, but who re fused to be guided by them after he got away from their influence, said, re ferring to the means of living in tramps quarters. "We manage it in various whvs. Wa nut nn a iob on some minis ter or generous Christian, and by the good talking of some one or our num ber get a little money or good clothes. TViasa wa tnrn into money. We win their sympathies by professions of re ligion, and most always get aid to visit our homes . in some far-off locality. ' Then seme of our number work tem- ninnn1 J TVlAir OnATIll til All- mOTIAT in treating, and thus one helps tne otner.' But these men deceive no one, it if said, although they think they are nc(l read through and through by those who try to reform tnem. itev. vr. xyng, before his departure for Europe, was in ! the habit on winter mornings of giving f hot breakfast to tne outcasts, wring ing them in from the highways. One morning he fed several hundred on a good, nourishing breakfast. Knowing that all of them would readily assert tnat tney aesirea to give up arm, re form, and become Christian men, he said to them : "There are many of you this moming doubtless saying in your minds : 'What a soft thing we have got on Dr. Tyng. We will go up and beat him out of a hot breakfast, and he is weloome to keep his religion." Now I am satisfied that if I can only save one man out of this large number pres ent here this morning, the object of this entertainment has been secured." New York Sun. Hods and lied-Clothcs. As at least one-third of our lives is passed in our beds, their arrangement and furnishing is a matter of no small importance. The new steel spring bed is, of course, the bed of the future. Fulfills every intention of flexibility ; it is durable ; it goes with the bedstead, as an actual part of it, and it can never be a nest or receptacle of contagion or impurity. ' On the subject of bed-. clothes the points that have most to be enforced are that heavy bed-clothing is always a mistake, and that weight in no tm a HAnsA means warmth. The light down quilts or coverlets which are coming into general use are the great est improvements that have been made in our time in regard to bed-clothes;'- One of these quilts takes well the place of two blankets, and they cause much less fatigue from weight than layer upon layer of blanket covering. The clothing must be regulated acoording to the needs of eaoti individual ; the body under the clothes must neither be too cold or too hot ; but it is better to sleep with too little than too much clothing. The position of the bed in the bed-room is of moment. The foot of the bed to the fire-place is the best arrangement when it can be carried out. The bed should be away from the door, so that the door does not open upon it, and should never, if it can be helped, be between the door 'and fire. If the head of the bed can be placed to the east, so that the body lies in the line of the earth's motion, I think it is the best position for the sleeper, The furniture of ' the bedroom, other than . the bed, should be of the simplest kind. The chairs should be unoovef ed, and free from stuffing of woolen or other material; the wardrobe should have Closely-fitting doors ; the : utensils should nave closely -fitting covers ; and everything that can in any way gather dust should be carefully excluded. .
