color, when nothing but plain salt is used
in the curing. If the work of salting is
carefully attended to, the hams, when cured
with salt alone, will be ready for smoking
at from six weeks to two months, accord

a tendency to harden and redden the meat.

Dr. Janes of Waterbury has not put shoes
on bis horses for two years, driving them
winter, summer, spring and fall with bare
feet without any trouble. The doctor
theory is that nature has provided for the
horse ; that a horse can travel over all kinds
of roads; that the hoofs will be moist
that the frog coming to the ground keeps
the hoofs properly spread and free from
founder and other diseases.
Plants, like animals, differ much in their
habits and the different sorts of food
which they subsist. The broad-leaved
clovers, turnips and mangels abstract from
the air a large portion of their growth,
while the narrow-leaved grains and grasses
partake more largey of mineral food, which
they draw from the soil. This fact will
explain the great advantage of rotation of
crops.
For a long time the tendency of the best
JCnghsh breeders has been towards the early
maturity of beef animals as the most profit

fed under cover.
what strange that though the note of warn

ago, It should not hare excited attention.
It is not too late now to adopt precaution,
if what is reported be correct. It is high
time that the sanitary condition of milk and
flesh producing animals was ascertained.
At present there is ample scope for froo

The Now York Bun says: The black
warts or knots on plum trees are caused by
fungus, and they should be cut away as
soon as discovered, and the trees stimulated
to make a vigorous growth. A quart or
two of salt scattered over the surface of
the ground about the tree will be beneficial,
and aid in checking tho disease. This we
know from our own experience to be the
romedy. Cut off and burn the infected
branches, and you will save your tree and
fruit.
Propibly prepared fowl manure may be
applied to any crop, field or garden, broad
cast or harrowed in, but it is more econom
ically used in the hill or drill. The easiest
and best way to save it is to gather it up as
aften as once a week and mix with about
twice its bulk of dry earth. In preparing
for use, spread the droppings on a tight
floor and make fine by pounding; make
moist with soao-suds, urine or other waste
wRtnr. In a short time the manure thus
treated will become well rooted, and ap
plied to beans, corn or potatoes at the rate
of a handful in a hill, well mixed in the
soil before dropping the seed, will give the
crop a good start. Hen manure applied
pure is sure to kill the germ of most plants.

Winter Fkkdino in thx Dairy. It is
important that the dairyman should so
feed his cows as to cause them to hold out
their milk to the end of the season ; and
no dairyman can afford to have a shorter
season than three hundred days. Unless
he feeds something better than dry corn
stalks he cannot expect to prolong the
season of lactation through December,
and if his herd do not come in till the
middle of March, they should not go dry
till about the middle of January. If he
has provided fodder corn, cut in blossom,
bound it in bundles and sot It in larne
shocks, so as to remain green and bright,
he will find little difficulty in keeping up
a fair flow of milk; but this should be fed
with good clover hay, or with four or five
pounds of wheat middlings per day. If
he is obliged to feed ordinary corn stalks
and he is provided with a feed cutter, let
him cut these stalks into short lengths
and mix two quarts of middlings and one
quart of corn meal per bushel, after moist
ening the cut corn, and then let it lie in
mass for about twelve hours and warm up
some; this will somewhat soften the
woody fibre of the stalks, and render the
whole more digestible. The new process
linseed meal may be purchased at one
cent per pound by the ton, and the dairy
man cannot make a better investment
than to purchase enough to feed each cow
one pound per day. If it is continued all
winter, he will find his herd in most satis
factory condition in the spring, and will
have no trouble with them when they come
in. A little oil meal is tho beBt substitute
for grass in the winter at least till dairy
man shall supply themselves with green
ensilage of the various kinds of grasses,
preserved in silo, so completely, as to be as
sweet and succulent as when cut. This
day may arrive in the future, and then
winter feeding will be the continuation of
the summer ration grass. National Live
stock Journal, Chicago.
Pressrvid Potatoes. The great draw
back in the past in the way of an extended
export trade of potatoes from this country
has lain in the fact that in ocean voyages
the vegetable is susceptible to sweat and
rot, and on arrival the losses from this cause
are often found to counterbalance the profit.
This inconvenience seems to be overcome
by the recent invention of a machine for
pressing and preserving potatoes in such a
manner that they may be dried and kept
for a number of years in any climate. It
is said that no oxidation or fermentation
takes place in the process, and that often
the potatoes after they go through the en
tire process retain to a great extent their
natural taste and original freshness. We
understand that shipments of these pota
toes made to England recently, more par
ticularly those from California, have com
manded earnest attention, and that the de
mand for them largely exceeds the present
mtmlv. It ia claimed that in the operation
or curing no chcmlcala are needed, every
thing being done by a simple machine,
which is capable of preserving six hundred
bushels of potatoes in twenty-four hours.
The machine not only presses the potatoes,
but lays them on a tray in a concave form
with the hollow side down. After the
pressure they are put into a drying apparatus
where they remain for two hours, then
they are ground into coarse meal resembling
cracked rice. The first shipment of pre
served potatoes to Liverpool brought the
handsome sum of $160 per ton more than
all expense of shipment. Last year about
twenty tons were shipped by ODe 8an
Francisco merchant which brought forty
five English shillings per hundred weight,
or nt a rate of 1.50 per bushel for green
potatoes. This surely would leave a good
margin for cost of preserving and profits.
Milk as a Cacse of TcBcaocLors Dia
bases. Mr. Fleming, verterinary surgeon
to the Royal Engineers, has insisted upon
the urgent necessity that exists for prevent
ing the consumption of the milk and flesh
of diseased cattle. In a paper recently
read by him at Norwich, England, be has
adduced further proof of the extreme dan
ger to the public from this source, and
these proofs are certainly startling and
worthy of notice. We learn that tubercu
losis among cattle is greatly on the increase,
and especially in the higher bred stock,
some authorities going so far aa to assert
that five per centuin are affected. As dairy
cows are never inspected as to their Mate
of health, as they furnish by far the hum
proportion of phthisical bovinea, there can
be no doubt as to the gravity of toe ques
tion in its relation to human tabereulosia
As the pig. an omnivorous creature like

creation in other respects, a moat readily
Infected by feeding with milk or tubercle,
there is every reason to think that mankind
and particularly children, mar be a (ua.
aptibw as Uva porcine tribe. It ia eotne-
Dibkotions for protecting trees against
the codling moth : The moth deposits its
eggs in the calyx of the young fruit ; in a
few days they hatch, and the worm bur
rows into the core of the apple. In about
three weeks it attains full size and escapes
from tin applo and takes shelter in the
scales of the bark of tho trea or other such
place. All wormy fruit should tie picked
or knocked off, gathered from the ground
and disposed of before the worm escapes.
Scrape and clean the bark of the trees thor
oughly during the early spring, and see
that no cocoons are left in the crevices.
Place bandages of old cloth, carpet or rags
around the trunks ana large orancues oi
every tree some time in the month of June
to trap the worms; examine these every
few days and kill, of course, all worms that
are trapped.
As a late result of scientific research, the
miblic is informed that dangerous poisons
are formed within the bodies of dead poul
try from which the entrails have not been
removed for some time after death, and
that human beings may. and, as a matter
of fact, have lost their lives in consequence
of eatine the flesh of fowls in this condi
tion. Common sense has always taught
that poultry certainly could not be improved
by the presence within it ot a mass ot pti-
trifying intestines ; and, now that science
has given authority to the lesson, let us
hope that all municipalities will follow the
lead of the few which nave proniniiea any
but cleaned poultry being offered for sale in
their midst.
No Plaok Like Home. Robert Collyer
In a recent lecture said : If preachers ever
exhaust the Bible, so that they must find a
' store of texts to preach from, 1 think
this is sure to be one of them, "There's no
place like home." In the heart of a grain
of wheat there is one spot like gold ; it im
parts that certain delicate color to ground
wheat which we admire so much ; and if
you sow it, there lies the germ of all the
harvests. What that germ is to the grain
home is to the man. When our mother
has done with us, and the bread of strangers
is the staff of our life, we wonder if any
body ever will make things taste as good as
those she gave us in olden time. Many
parents make sad havoc of their children
in their haste to make men of them.
Fresh Eoos During Winter. The pro
duction of eggs during cold weather is
largely under the control of the one who
has charge of the fowls. Hens supplied
with warm and comfortable quarters and
an abundance of suitable food as a rule re
ward the owner with a bountiful supply of
ejrn-s. In connection with liberal care
should be observed the aires of the fowls.
Geyeli n and other scientists who have looked
into the matter state, and Prof. Milesquof.es
the following proportion as applicable to
the average of poultry : -"f iret year alter
hatching, 15 or 20 eggs; second year, 100
to 120; third year. 120 to 135. and the
fourth year after hatching, 100 to 115 eggs,
after which time there is a visible decrease,
the fifth year being accorded only 60 to 80
eggs. Fowls require a variety of food.
Corn fed alone tends to the production of
eggs. Wright in his book on poultry places
finely ground oats, thoroughly moistened,
but not made into a slop, at the head of the
list as a standard food for poultry. He fur
thermore recommends the mixing of all
soft food with boiling water and the feeding
of it while it is yet warm. Of the whole
grains he gives buckwheat the preference
and next to this he advises good sound bar
ley. Laying bens should also have a liberal
supply in way of fresh vegetables and any
irreen obtainable. Scraps of meat chopped
tine and mixed with bits of food
from th', table are also desirable. The food
may be further varied by using wheat
screening or middlings and shorts mixed
and wet with water. Burnt bones or oys
ter shells or bits of pounded lime, mortar
and gravel must be regularly furnished.
These substances present the occurrence of
soft-shelled eggs and are relished by the
hens. A box ot dry ashes placed where it
is always accessible insure freedom from
vermin. To present tne matter in a nut
shell, furnish suitable accommodations, oh
tain and keep excellent breeds, feed as
great a variery or diet as possioie, ana reea
as much as they wtll eat a hungry hen will
not be a laying hen. In very cold weather
and a little cayenne pepper to the morning
ration, which, by the way, snouia i e maac
neither too wet nor given too hot. Supply
plenty of water and observe regularity in
feeding and also in gathering the eggs.

Mr. J. O. Goodhue, Versbire, Vermont,

stroying the Colorado potato-beetle, pick

this waa the more surprising, as the field
was alive with grasshoppers."
Mr. J. W. Sanborn, of the New Hamp
shire agricultural college, reports this as
one result of certain experiment in reed
ing cows: "Changing from meal to bran
there was a loss of 17.7 per cent in the
butter producing capacity of milk ; chang
ing from bran to meal there was a gain

21.8 percent
There is an increased production of flag

usual quantity of flax was raised in the
Atlantic state that there has been previ
ously. New York also has taken a ntw
start in this direction.
The Senate of France, by a vote of 254
majority, has passed a bill making the
study of agriculture obligatory upon the

The turkey was brought to England in
the early part of the 16tn century by Win.
Strickland, lieutenant to BebsV-tian Cabot.
Since that time it ha been acclimatized in
most part of the world ; but t' e domestic

flesh of the wild turkey, it may not be
known, is more pheasant-like than that of
the domestic varieties of tte bird.
Sunflower seed 1 highly recommended
by fancier as food for poultry, especially
as it tends to give a brilliant and glossy ap

Marrying- Money.
Miss Kate Chase was young, beautiful,
courted, idolized and the brilliant daughter
of a powcnul and popular public mau. But
she was poor; she wanted to be rich. She
married a man who but for his money and
position she never would have thought of
tor a husband, lie was course hy nature,
boorish in manner, and generally unsuited
to ber. But he bad a name and was rich
Ho was supposed to have a fortune of mil
ions ; she did not and could not love him.
But she married him, virtually selling her
self to him, youth, beauty, proud name
all, for his money and as she fondly hoped,
for permanent wealth and power. No
young man, of her own years, even if
were rich in the greater fortunes of heart
and ability, was worth the proud beauty
attention. She could wed none such. She
would marry a rich man for his money.
She did. Her name became Spraeue. so-
called matrimony making her mistress of
his name, fortune and title, and ho master
or her. tsue was now, as Washington par
lance goes, mrs. senator sprague.
Miss Lily Somebody was a c erk in the
treasury department at Washington. She
was a poor girl, but had a poor girl' pure
name and a natural dower of beauty. She
lived with her mother, and with her salary
as clerk supported her ; it was enough for
oom, u tuey aesirea lo Jive comforlab v
and not gaudily. But her young life caught
so mucn or tue splendor or Washington
upper me, tne most or it snoddy and vul
gar out sun piazing and brilliant, that he
young head was turned by it. Young men
comely in maniint sa, honor and promise of
usefulness, moving in her own rank, no
longer were augnt to ner ; she would mate
with none such. She would live on fairer
bread, and have a husband who could dress
her well and give her p tfition. A decrepid
oil man, shaking with palsy, and disgust
ing in his weakness even to those of his
own age, crossing the girl's path, saw the
hunger of her face and saw she was readv
to sell hei'Belf, youth, beauty and all, for
ijuBiuuu auu money, ne had the former.
and pretended to the latter. He reached
out his palsied hand, and the over-rine fruit
dnipped into it the giddy, beautiful and
aniuitious young treasury clerk became Mrs.
unriiiiancy.
1 hese two girls, both possessed of vnntli
and beauty, and one at least, of hiirh line-
BC " seiiius mm grace oi ner own be
sides, became the wives of two United
States senators. This made thein the wives
of officials of great dignity and station
omciais standing next in power and rank
to tue presiaent of the republic, and rep
resenting in the United States the official
rank and social power represented bv their
graces m England, the dukes. So they
were uiguiy married, as the phrase goes.
But neither loved the man she married.
aud so both were virtually mistresses more
than wives. They got all that they bar
gained for that is to ssy, got to be sena
tors' wives, and bad plenty of money, so
long as it lasted. The men got their dainty
prizes and, while the novelty lasted, were
perfect old fools over them. Then came
the re-action on both sides and all sides.
The end was inevitable disgust all round,
and now two scandals are filling two worlds.
Here is a lesson two of th.m indeed
for the young woman who is determined to
marry for no such sentimental thing as love,
but for something substantial in the shape
or money. Any sucn nail ncttur study
over these cases in which two of her sisters
tried the experiment. Then she will not
follow their example. Instead she will let
her hand follow .lor heart, and unite her
lot with some manly, noble young man,
who has his fortune to make yet, perhaps,
but who, with her love to cheer aud her
thrift to aid him, will in the and surely win
it. Ten times to one it is the poor lover
poor, we mean, only in this world's gear
who makes the rich husband and the
great man. Any girl, who amounts to
anything herself more than a milliner's bill
or a doctor's bill, who finds a young man
with the right mettle in him, can lead him,
by the fairy hand of love, into almost any
eminence that she will provided she go
happily along in the same pathway with
him. The old saying : "I had rather be
an old man's darling than a young man's
slave," is false through and through.
There is no half-way bouse in married life;
there can be no happiness in it without
love. The girl who thinks gold will bring
happiness to a loveless union is simply dis
cussing a proposition to sell herself at so
much a pound or so much a year. Kate
Chase has tried this. Lily Somebody has
tried it. What girl wants to follow where
they have gone, and end where they are ?
The Courtesies of Life. Wm. Wirt's
letter to his daughter on "the small, sweet
courtesies of life," contains a passuge from
which a deal of happiness might be learn
ed : "I want to tell you a secret. The
way to make yourself pleasing to others is
to show tbem that you care for them. The
whole world is like the miller of Mansfield
who cared for nobody no, not he lie
cause nobody cared for him. And the
whole world would serve you so if you
gave the same cause. Let everyone, there
fore, see that you do care for them, by
showing tliem wl t Sterne so happily calls
the 'small couttesie,' in which there is no
parade, whose voice is too still to lease,
and which manifest themselves by tender
and affectionate looks and little kind acts
of attention giving others the preference
in every little enjoyment at the table, in
the field, walking, sitting or standing."
Show Respect fob Women. There is
nothing in which young men are so thor
oughly mistaken a in the low estimation
they form of the integrity of women. Not
of tttetr owa mottsc. and sisters, but of
other, who,- they forget, are somebody
else's mothers and sisters. As a rule, no
person who surrenders to thi debasing
nanii is to ne entrusted witn an enterprise
requiring integrity of character. Plain
words should be spoken on tlie subject, for
tne evn is a general on. If young men
are sometimes thrown into the company of
the thoughtless and depraved women, they
have no right to measure all women by
what they see of these, than they have to
estimate the character of honest respectable
people by the development of crime in our
police courts. Let our young men remem
ber that their chief happineas in life de
pends on their utter faith in women. No
worldly wisdom, no misanthropic philoso
phy, no I'-neralization, can weaken this
truth ; it stands like the record of itself
for it is nothing less than this and should
put an everlaating seal upon lips that are
wont to speak lightly of women. Lynn

Supposing all the great points of atheism
were formed into a kind of creed, I would
fain ask whether it would not require an
infinitely greater measure of faith than any
set articles which they so violently oppose.
Addison.
Nothing is ever done so as to really please
our Great Father, unless we would also
have done it though we had had no Father
to know of it. John Huakin
It is a great misfortune to have a fretful
disposition. It takes the fragrance out of
one's life, and leaves only weeds, where a
cheerful disposition would cause flowers to
bloom. The halnt of fretting is one that
grows rapidly unless it he sternly repressed
and the best way to overcome it is to try
nl ways to look on the cheerful siilu of
things.
Talk of science as being irreligious,
atheistic I Science i creating a new idea
of God. It is due to science that we have
any conception at all of a living God. If
we do not become atheists one of these
days under the maddening effect of Prot
estantism, it will bejdue to science, because
it ia disabusing us of hideous illusions that
tease and embarrass us, and pulling us in
the way ot knowing how to reason ahout
the things we see. (J. IS. troUiwgn im.
Do not suffer yourself to be hurried
away by the impetuosity of your passions,
but in all your pursuits have a regard to
Justice, and in all your speculation let truth
be your aim. Whatever is agreeable and
consonant to thy system, O Universe, is so
to me. Nothing is either premature or too
late, in my apprehension of things, which
is seasonable to nature and conducive to
the good of the whole. Marcus Aurelius.
It is not for him who accepts the spirit

The reason why the men of the world
think so little of Christ is, they do not look
