We are indebted to Mr. J. C.
Keys for a statement of the yield
from one cow kept by him for the last
ninety days, and give it as a matter
of information to our readers, with
the hope that it may tend to induce
them to take care of their milk
cows, and receive similar profit.
The following is the average per
1st 30 days, 36 lbs. or pints por day.
2d 30 days, 385 lbs. or 1int: per day.
3d 30 days, 37 lbs. or pits per day,
or for the first 30 days she gave 4j
gallons per day ; the next 30 days
she gave a fraction over 4j gallons
per day ; and the third 30 (lays she
gave 4 gallons and five pints per
day. During fourteen days of this
time she averaged 5 gallons per
day, and on one day she gave 5t
gallons. The total amount of milk
given in the 90 days was 418 gallons l
and 1 pint. From this amount of
milk 137 pounds of butter was made.
The cow is half Durham, of medium
size, and weighs 644 pounds live
weight. She has given milk
since the 1st day of Juno, 1875,
with the exception of a short inter
val last year, and still holds up in
the quantity of milk she yields.
This shows the advantage of keel
ing one cow properly, intead of half
a dozen or so in the ordinary way.
A THIEF's LITTLE JoKE.-A Lon
don pick-pocket played a trick on a
policeman the other day. Detected
in stealing a watch he ran away, and
at the moment the policeman came
up with him he appeared to pass
the watch to a bystander, saying,
"Here, take it." The policeman ar
rested both- and took them both
before a magistrate, where both
loudly declared their innocence.
They were immediately searched,
but nothing could be found to
criminate them. The pickpocket
then accused the policeman of com
mitting the theft himself, and on
searching his own pockets the
astonished officer discovered the
wat.lih in his pocket. The pick
pocket, having enjoyed his little
joke, immediately acknowledged his
guilt, to the intense relief of the
A SMAL DIVIDEND.-At a late
meeting of the creditors of the bank
rupt firm of I. L. Gunhouse & Co.,
of Chester, the compromise proposed
by the firm was accepted. They pro
posed to pay 20 per cent. of their
indebtedness-10 per cent. cash and
the balance on a credit of one year.
The number of creditors was one
hundred and thirty-one, of whom
more than one hundred favored the
proposed arrangement. The mi
nority, I suppose, will be bound by
the decision of the majority. The
firm exp)ect to open their store
and resume business, as soon as the
com promise proceedings have re
ceived the sanction of the Court.

Lewis Cruger, one of the old
style of Democrats, contributes to
the Washington Post the following:
I was present at the family mansion
of the Calhiouns, among the moun.
tains of Pendleton, when the com
mittees of all the Northern Conven
tions waited upon that eminent
statesman to offer him the Presi -
dency upon the condition of his.
giving up the doctrine of nullifica
tion. The grand old Roman, slowly
rising from his seat and elevating
his majestie figure to its highest
stature, exclaimed in the loftiest
tones of his stentorian voice, "I

come an Emperor 1"
In Hartford, Conn., women re~.
ceive twenty- five cents per dozen
for making corsets; and the cotton
thread, which must b6 bought- of

flye thousand stitches in one corset.

TOTAL ABSTINENCE SAINt WINE TILL IT
There is a curious story about some native
wines which are extensively advertised nowa
days, and have only recently been put upon
the market. Dr. Underhill, the well-known
grape-grower of Croton Point, died in 187r.
Some of his heirs entertained temperance
views of such extreme kind, that they were
unwilling to allow the stock of wines then on
hand to be sold or any more to be made.
The grapes have sometimes been sent to
market, and sometimes left to decay upon
the vines. It is only now that the other heirs
have succeeded in arranging for a settlement
of the estate and the sale of the wines on
hand. Among these is a wine of the vintage
of 1864, described as a "Sweet Union Port,'
but suggesting the Imperial Tokay more
than any other European wine, and being
wholly unlike any other wine of American
growth. Its purity, age and mellowness are
remarkable, and both physicians and wine
fanciers have a special interest in it as the
oldest native wine now accessible in any con
siderable quantity. The whole stock is in the
hands of the well-known wholesale grocery
house of the Thurbers.-N. Y. Tribune,
Nov. 19, 16S?7.
The above speaks for itself, but we would
add that this is the pure juice of the grape,
neither drugged, liquored nor watered; that it
has been ripened and mellowed by age, and
for medicinal or sacramental purposes it is
unsurpassed. It can be obtained from most
of the leading Druggists throughout the
United States, and at wholesale from the
undersigned, who will forward descriptive
pamphlet, free of charge, on application.
