A STiANdE REMNIHENUE.
The FOSape of a Well known ex.Arin
trin-ou fromi an Untorseen Danger.
I seldom appnar publicly In print, but
the facts connected with my exp.!i ience
which follow are so striking, and boar so
rT t', closely upon the experience 'of others, that
I venture to reproduce them entire:
7In the month of September, 1879, I was
prat,ticing medicine in Now Orleans. The
summer had been excessively hot and
everybody was complaining of bei ng ex
haitel and fooleng tired, it was not in
onrequentt occurrence to have patients ask
for something to rnleve this weary sonsa
tion, and that I should also partake af tb
seme universal lassitude or weakness, did
not alarm me, I supposed- that over-work
and exposure had produced a temporary
physical prostration; therefore I made a
trip.to St. Paul, 1nn.,ttDinkg that a few
weeks In a cooler cliniate would soon rein
vigorate me.ytte did I dream, howev
er, what *ras in store for -no. *After get-.
ting settled in my new quarters took a
short walk every day, and patiently await
ed a return di strength, but n spite of all
ny efforts I seemed to be losing strength;
and even.-any slight exercise becamue labo
rious and tiresome. During the time I
had freqient dull ching pains in my head
and through my back and hips, occasional
shoot ig pains in various parts of the body,
with sereness, shor'ness of breath, and pat
pitation of the heart. My feet and hands
would be like Ice one day, and burn with
heat the nex. I had no desire for fooi,
and what I did eat distressed me; my sleep
became disturbed with the frequent desire
to urinate. The quantity of fluid passed
would at.one time be small and at another
quite prouse. as Then for days I would be
perfectly free from this desire and nothlug
Ereemed to be the matter ; nevertheles my
debihbty gradually increased. ly eyhds
were puffed out; oy bowels were alternate
ly torpid ad too active, the urine would
be clear some dayN on others it would be
t high color and deposit a black dust sedi
ment, and at still others there would be a
whitish appearance and a tin greasy s(-umi
would rise to the top. The pains in my
head, back, chet, Joltts,bowels and bones
were horrible In the extreme. I went in
vain from place to place and consulted the
best medical authorities the country af
lords; I would bave bill one day and a
burming fever the next. I suffered excru
cintingly with a numbness of my feet and
h wnds, and at the base of the bram and be
Itween my shoulders; at timecs my lumbE
anid body would bloat and physicians said
I was sufering from the dropsy and could
How I could be so blind to the terrible
trouble that was devouring me, I do not
know; but there aro thousands to-day who
tire suffering from the samec cause and are
as ignorant of its nature as I was. Aly skin
was the color of marble at one time, and
then again it would be like saffron, and
t his terrible restlessness, and I might say
wilness, was followed [y a dull, heavy,
drowsy sensation. I was wasted to a mere
skeleton except when the dropsical bloat
occurred. I tried all the celebrated mn
eral waters of this country and Eirope; all
kinds of medicine and all kinds of doctors.
Mtill no help caine. 1 lay at my hotel in
11Philadelphia, where I was temporarily so
journing, given up by friends and physi
cians alike, when there providentially
camne into my hands a little p)amhlet
which 1 carefully read, and fronm widu I
got a view of my real condition, which no
oilier agency had revealed. Acting on its
iadvice, 1 had niy water analyzed at once,
and to my surprise, albumen and tube
cas5ts were found in large qimantitics, A
skIllful physician was sent for and appr)isedl
of the fact. lie said I had Bright's Dis
e*ase, aiid that (leath was certain. My
I riend(s importuned mue to take a remedy
which had won a great rep)utationi for thme
cure of all forms of kidney disease, and I
thierefore laid aside my prejudice and coim
mecedC( its uisc. At first my stomach re
jected it and I hand to use small quiantities;
but after the first Ive (lays my stomach re
iiimued full doses. This was one year ago
last Ootober, and my implrovement was
rapid andi permanent. 1 have regained 50b
of the 65 pounds of flesh I lost duting my
illness, and I feel as well to-day as I ever
'lid, and I can unreservedly state that my
life was saved by Warner's Safe Kidney
andm Liver Cure, the remedy I used.
It imay seem strange that I, being a phy
aician and an ex-armiy surgeon, did not
hatve the water analyzed before; but such
isi the fact. I had the symptoms of every
oilier disease, and I di not suspect that
my kidneys were In 'the least p)articular
omit of order; andl here Is just where 1 was
in the greatest danger, anid where mnost
people who readi this article are mn (dainger.
I lInd that 1 am only one of thousanids who
are sufferiag from kidney disorders, whih
neglected, surely terminate In Bright's dis
ease. 1 also know that physicians may
treat these dhsorders for months without,
knowing clearly what the troub)le is, and
even after ascertaining the cause, be una
ble to prevent It. When decathi, however,
linally overtakes the helpless victim they
disguise its real cause, attributing it to
heart duaease, convulsions, ap)opleSxy, ver
tugo, paralysis, spinal meningitis, biood
and ureinic poisoning, etc., etc.
Words, 01 course, fail to exprcss my
thanks to it. II. Warner & Co., of Roch
aster, N4. Y., for gmving the world such a
needed andl dertain spsecific as the Bale
KIudney an(i Liver Cure, hut suich as they
are I gladly give them; while to the thous
ands1 to whom I have lectured upon te
laws of health and hygiene I commend
is letter most cordially, and warn them
io beware 01 the Insidious nature of a (is
t-use over which physicians confess they
tave no control and which m one form or
ruiother, is carrying more people to untime
.y graves than any other malady.

JC'appears from a recent otiservation by
D)r. Fleitmann, of Iserlohn. as the Iiven
ior of a process for wek(ling micke'.tta

D)r. Fleutmann gave his experience as fol

botionm of a stable put ftlled and ramimed
with commomn clay containing iron. TIhe
l)it had served its purposq for storing (lung
for about two years, during which time,
<ccsonally, to prevent orheating,water
had been poured ('ver it; lately it became
necessary to remove the pit, when, to thme
great surprise of i)r. Floitmsann, lie found
uhe clay hiad entirely change<d in character
andl had become white: it was, moreover,
dlivhded in nummerous dimections by fissures
from qne t\venty fifth unchio onesixth inch

FRTILITY INORRASRD BY ROTATION.
When the farm annually yields to its fu
capacity there is extracted from the so
those elements that principally constitu
its riches or fertility, and unless the soil
fed with matter containing those elemen
of fertility it will in the course of time fa
to repay for-the labor and capital requirt
in its cultivation. Most farmers are awai
of that tact and use barnyard manure an
commercial fertilize ts iii order to suppl
the deficiency. We have within our powt
however, the means by which the soil ca
be recuperated and restored to fcrtilitj
and every prudent farmer takes advantag
of such opportunities in order to bring h
farm to the highest degree of productivc
ness. The practice cf rotation of cro;
is essential to good farming, and it :
by such a system that the most ferttl
suctions have betn kept to their standar
How rotation ccomplishes so desirabI
a result is not a hard matter to solve, fu
plants, like animals, differ in their ineth
ode of growth and feeding capacities. Whe
a field is occupied by clover, the crop
when plowed under or fed to atock on th
farm and again returned in the shape o
manure, adds additional matter to the soil
When fed to animals, only a portion rc
turns, but when the whole crop goes undo
the quantity is very large. But, as a cro
of clover is sometimes too valuable for th
plow, we still have the advantage of know
ing that tho sod ant roots are very crLIe
ing. Olover is a lime and potash plan
requiring but little applied nitrogen i
make its growthr and yet, by shading th
soil, and through its power of utilizing th
nitrogenous materials of the soil and a
iosphere, it returnf mere nitrogen to th
soil than those crops that depend largel
on that substance. Now does it take froi
the soil a dInproportionate quantity (
phosphoric acid, which is another advau
tage in its favor. As clover takes froi
tte soil lime and potasti principally,
leaves the ground, when removed, in goc
condition for some crop that protects n
wIogen and phosphoric acid. Experient
has taught farmers that wheat or corn

and such system is generally on well cu
tivated larms, wheat, clover and corn to
lowing in successive order.
In some sections the piactice is a hot

HniTs FOR Tfs LAuNDit.--Evory
11 housekeeper knows how vexatious it is
1l to have colored fabrics ruined in the
e process of cleansing. A few practical
la hints about washing calicoes, percales
a and muslins will therefore be of real
11 service. Before washing black and
d white, stone, slate or maroon colored
e cotton goods, dip them in a solution of
d salt and water. made by dissolving two
y cupfuls of salt and water in ten quarts
ir of cold water, and hang themin a shady
n place to dry. The salt sets the colors.
I When dry, wash in a light suds in the
e usual way. Calicoes and muslins do
S uot require a hot suds; water moderately
1- warm is best. Never allow them to
a soak in the water. Wash quickly, turn
8 the wrong side out and dry in the shade.
0 A little salt in the rinsing water is an
d improvement. Another way is to mix
two cupfuls of wheat bran in cold water,
e making a smooth paste; then stir it in
r to one quart of soft .warm water. Let
it bo1J one hour, then strain into five or
six quarts of soft warm water. No soap
is necessary, for bran has cleansing
, properties of its own, If there is black
in the dress, or any other color that is
liable to "run," add a tablespoonful of
r salt. Rinse thoroughly in the water.
P For starch, use a little white glue water,
e cool and clean. Always iron on the
wrong side with a moderately hot iron.
. Blue, stone, slate and brown-colored
articles may also be made to retain their
o color perfectly by adding sugar of lor.1
a to the water in which they are to be
e washed. Dissolve one ounce of sugar
of lead in a pailful of hot water; stir
0 carefully until it is thoroughly dissolved,
Y and let the mixture cool. When about
a milk-warm, put in the articles and let
,f them remain an hour. Hang up to dry
before washing. When dry, wash as
n directed in bran water. The sugar of
it lead fixes the color permanently, so that
d treatment with it will not need to be
i. repeated. Use this prepaiation with
e caution, sugar of load is poisonous. To
is wash brown linen, take enough good
k, timothy hay to fill a ton quart kettle
I- two-thirds full when pressed down;
I- cover it with soft water, and let it boil
until the water assumes a dark greenish
d color. Make flour starch in the usual
e way, and strain the hay-water into it
h after it becomes cool or tepid; let the
li- nen soak ten or fifteen -minute--not
i longer-then wash- without soap. I di
0 vido the preparation into two parts,
it using one for rinsing. Linen dresses
d and dusters washed in t1lis way will
n look now as long as they last, Friut or
dl wine stains can be rom.>ved from silk,
" woolen or cotton goods by sponging
Stheu gently with ammonia and alcohol
