The District Convention to nomi nate a candidate for member of Con gress for this district will be held at Burlington July 1st. It is pleasant to know that there is to be no opposi tion to Gov. Stewart, for we regard him as a pure and able man, and be lieve that if the district decides, as we think it will, to continue him in the position, he will lake a place in Congress that will reflect much credit upon our State. It now seems to be conceded that Gen. Grout will be again returned from the Second District, a fact that is very gratifying to his friends in the old third. The General has made an excellent Con gressman, and we think his continu ance is deserved. Senator Edmunds. We are pleased to note that the opposition to Senator Edmunds is fast disappearing. The pride of Ver- " so great that his apparent coldness in the campaign of 1884 will be con doned. The Senator's Eepublicanism is of the most stalwart kind and has never been questioned. His acknowl edged leadership, both as a Statesman and Republican, would make his re tirement at this time almost a national calamity. It is generally safe in poli tics to proceed in a direction directly opposite to that which your enemies would have you go, and no one doubts that the defeat of Edmunds would be the occasion for the most hearty and sincere rejoicing on the part of the Democracy from Passamaquoddy to the Eio Grande. General Stannard. The grandest type of a soldier that Vermont sent forth in the war of the rebellion ha3 been called to join the ranks of those who now constitute the majority of the patriots of 1861. Gen. Stannard is no more. The last tribute of respect was paid to the great soldier-when at his funeral at Burlington on Saturday last, the most distinguished gathering of Vermont- ers that ever assembled to pay respect to the honored dead, assembled at his obsequies. The hero of many battles, and the one to whom perhaps as much as to any other is ascribed the honor of saving the day at Gettysburg, is entitled to a measure of gratitude that in lifetime he failed to receive. But history will undoubtedly give him a deserved recognition, and when time, the great sifter shall have separated from the many to whom we are in debted for our honorable standing in the late war, those to whom we ase most indebted, we think the name of Stannard, will crown the pyramid. Pensions. Pensions have recently been granted to vermonters as follows Svlvanus Keves. Moretown. $4 a month and S37 arrears; F.

The in cineration of Dr. Dio Lewis' remains at Mt. Olivet crematory, L. I., furnishes an instance of consistency and devotion to principle to the end. The doctor's life was devoted to the advocacy of prin ciples of hygiene and sanitary reform, and in death he was true to his theories, providing that his body be cremated in stead of allowing the ordinary method of burial. This provision for his re mains was not the eccentric whim of a crank who merely craved notoriety, but the deliberate wish of a sensible man whose career in medical matters has been successful and whose measures have done much toward the preserva tion of life. He believed in cremation as the best method of disposing of the body after death, and especially of im portance to the welfare of the living, in the removal of the causes of diseases resulting from decay. Death of Cen. Stannard. j A BRAVE GENERAL'S DEATH. A DISTIN GUISHED WAR RECORD. Major Gen. George J. Stannard of Burlington, one of the most valiant sons of the Green mountain state, died at Washington, Monday night May 31th from typhoid-pneumonia. The deceased had been for some years a doorkeeper at the capitol, and was taken ill at his post last Thursday. The house of represen tatives yesterday voted his family, who did not reach "Washington before his death, six months' pay and funeral ex penses. Gen. Stannard, who was about sixty years old, was colonel of the ninth Vermont Volunteers; and was assigned in 1862 to Pope's command. A year later he was made a Brigadier General and placed in command of the second Vermont brigade. At Gettysburg he was severely wounded, and he was sub sequently given command of all the troops in New York city. Afterward he took part in the battle of Cold Har bor, where he lost two staff officers and was again dangerously wounded. He led the fight at Petersburg, and again received a wound. At the capture of Fort Harrison his right arm was shot off near the shoulder, but he still continued in the service. He commanded the scattered forces on the Canadian hue m suppressing the raiders and protecting the border ; in Maryland and Virginia he served under the Freedman's Bureau, and in 1864 he wasbrevetted Major Gen eral of volunteers. Gen. Stannard was one of the bravest soldiers Vermont sent to the front, and he honored his state by his conspicuous gallantry. The deceased was born at Georgia, Oct. 20, 1820, and his early education was received in the common schools and academies of Georgia and Bakersfleld. When fifteen years old and. until he reached his twentieth year he worked on his father's farm in summer and taught school in winter. . In 1860 he conducted as a co-partner the St. Al bans' foundry, where he had been em ployed as a clerk. He manifested n, active interest in the militia, and 1&56 he was elected first lieutenant of the Eansom guards of St. Albans and in 1858 he was appointed colonel of the fourth regiment of Vermont. When the president's proclamation was issued in April, 1861, Gen. Stannard was the first Vermonter to volunteer for war duty, he immediately telegraphing Gov. Fairbanks the offer of his services. Of the second Vermont regiment organized in May, 1861, and mustered in at Bur lington, the deceased was commissioned lieutenant colonel. The regiment was att iched to Howard's brigade and took part in the first battle of Bull Run, cov ering the retreat so. well as to receive a special compliment from Gen. Howard. After the deceased had been appointed colonel he returned home and organ ized his new wmmand, the ninth Ver mont regiment, and returned to the front in July. On his appointment by President Lincoln as brigadier general of volunteers he assumed command of the second Vermont brigade. It is said of him ' His participation in the bat tle of Gettysburg won him much honor. Having had, the second day of the fight, the temporary charge of the federal bat teries on the left slope of Cemetery hill, and in the afternoon being ordered to rerjel Lon "street's assault, his brigade not only prevented the capture of two batteries but captured two rebel guns and many prisoners. His conduct on the third and last day was of special importance, lhe critical moment in the battle was when Stannard struck the charging division of Pickett upon the flank. That blow disabled them, it decided the issue of the rebellion, and to have been the directing genius in this supreme crisis of the nation's fate, and to have been equal to the emergency, is a unique and lasting honor to Gen. Stannard." On his retirement from the service he was appointed collector of customs for the district of Vermont, occupying the office until 1S72. In September, 1850, he was married to Emily Clark, daughter of Jeremiah Clark of St. Albans. Of their four children three daughters survive. The funeral took place at Burlington, Satur day, and was largely attended. . .. ...I . nmom i President Cleveland Married. President Cleveland and Miss Frances Folsom were united in man iage at the W hire House V ednesday ot last week a little after seven 'clock, according to nrotrram. This is the first marriage of a l'resiuent or tne united taies inai ev occurrwl in tVi WHit House, and tne auauicea wcie ita iiauity uti aiq -too wished. About halt-past six o'clock the wedding guests began to arrive, their carriages roiling up to the main door, and, during the next few minutes there came in quick succession Postmaster General "Vilas and wife, W. S. Bissel, Secretary and Mrs. Endicott, Secretary iiayard, secretary and Airs. Whitney. and Secretary Manning and his wite. Removing their wraps in the state din ing room, all the guests proceeded to the blue room where they were received by Miss Rose Cleveland. Just as the wedding ceremony began, a presidential salute was fired bv a battery of artillery near the river, and the chime bells of the Metropolitan church peaied rortn the Mendelssohn wedding march. The President wore white gloves, contrary to expectation, and the gentlemen pres ent didn't get a chance to kiss the bride, also contrary to expectation, i ne itev. Dr. Byron Sunderland of the Presbyte rian church performed the ceremony, after which the President and his wife took the train for Deer Park for a week's sojourn. Many were the presents and valuable, but it was considered not in good taste to exhibit them. The bride wore a dress of ivorv satin. simDlv ear nished on the high corsage with India muslin crossed in trrecian loids and car ried in exquisite falls in simplicity over the petticoat, lhe orange blossom gar niture, commencing upon the veil in a superb coronet, was continued through out the costume with artistic skill. Her veil of tulle, about five yards in length, completely enveloped her, falling to the edge of her petticoat in front and ex tending the entire length of her lull court train. She carried no flowers and wore no jewelry except an engagement ring, which contained a sapphire and two diamonds, iueen v ictona prompt ly cabled her sincere congratulations. and her best wishes for the President's happiness. The bride is a Buffalo young lady, and was born in that city July 21, 1864. ; She was graduated from Wells College, at Aurora, in June, 1883. Her father died in 1875. The young lady is a member of the Central Presbyterian Church of Buf falo. Small is the sum that is required to patronize a newspaper, and amply re warded is its patron, I care not how humble and unpretending the gazette he takes. It is next to impossible to fill a sheet with printed matter without putting into it something that is worth the subscription price. Every parent whose son is away from home tit school should supply him with a newspaper. I well remember what a marked Con trast there was between those of my schoolmates who had or had not access to the newspapers. Other things being equal, the first were always decidedly superior to the last in debate, composi tion and intelligence. Daniel Webster. Gen. John C. Black, the remarkable man who is muddling pension matters as the head of the pension bureau, thought the lightning might strike him when Gen. Logan and Col. Morrison were having their neck and neck race for the United States senatorship in the Illinois legislature last spring. Black got just one vote. It was cast by a man named Browning. Events since then go to prove that Browning knew what he was about when he gave it. He wanted to be a special examiner of pen sion claims, but was rejected by the civil-service board, being unable to pass the requisite examination. But Black has appointed him to the office, notwith standing, and the fellow has his reward. Once more Democracy opens its petals, and out pops the llower of civil-service reform. Troy 'Times. In the May number of the DonCAS, a magazine where the needle-woman is al ways sure of finding timely aud practi cal suggestions for making useful arti cles and for decorating the home, a num ber of directions for needle-work are given, which will help a great many women to employ profitably their sum mer vacations. Crocheting and knitting, to which the magazine is especially de voted, are well represented by illustra tions, and working directions for making many pretty and useful garments. Bead work, which promises to become as pop ular as in the . olden time, has an article devoted to it, and other special papers describe Russian embroidery and the re vived Makart boqucts. The books of the month which are best calculated to inter est women, are reviewed ; and many practical hints may be found in the care fully edited column, 'Answers to Corre spondents." Letter from Kansas. Wakefield, Kan., May 25, '86. Editors News and Citizen : As it has been some time since I have written you, I will now try and do so. Every one has been very busy for a month or six weeks past, getting in their corn and oats. The oats are now about eight inches high, wheat a foot high, and rye has been headed out for some time. The corn is all sizes, from that just planted np to a foot high. It has been a very back ward spring here and farmers have errowled a sreat deal. There has been a large fall of rain, and May 11th a heavy hail storm, hail-stones falling as large as turkey eggs. The storm was accompanied by a good deal of wind, and taking the wind and hail together it smashed many windows, and garden stuff was pounded into the ground. It has been fine and clear for a week, with not a sign of rain. The thermometer has ranged from 75 to 98 degrees through the day, with cool nights. There has been a large area of winter wheat plowed under and corn planted. The wheat crop, as a general thing, seems to be a failure, though there are some fine fields. Corn is put in a little dif ferent here than it is in Lamoille coun ty. The ground is plowed and the corn planted at the same time, and it is claimed that corn does as well, or better, put in that way as to plow the ground and drill it in. The machine used to plow and plant at the same time is called a "lister, and takes three horses to draw it. A good team will put in eight or ten acres a day. The old stalks are either cut down with a stalk cutter or rail. When the ground is frozen they get a thirty foot railroad iron and hitch a pair of horses to each end and drag it across the rows, so that it breaks or pulls the stalks nearly all down, when they are raked and burned. The new iron bridge at Wakefield has been completed, and has made quite an improvement in our looks and business here. It brought a large territory into connection with Wake field that had formerly done their bus iness at Clay Centre and June City. There have been twenty new buildings erected and in process of erection in Wakefield in the last three months, the greater part being business build ings. The boarding capacity of the town is now taxed to its utmost, and every train brings some new man to look over our town, and who usual ly decides to locate here. Town lots are being sold quite briskly, ranging from $5 to 100, and more, according to the location. We are trying our best to get a flouring mill started here. There are 40,000 bushels of wheat stored here in one building, and has been here for two years. Eastern parties own it and are holding it for an advance. If we had a mill here we could turn the wheat into flour and sell the manufactured article. Mr. and Mrs. J. T. Fullington, Mrs. B. Fullington and Miss Eugenia Fulling ton arrived at Clay Centre May 14. They are all from East Cambridge, Vt. Mr. F. has two sons in Clay Centre and they are wide awake, stir ring young men ; just the kind for a western town or city. There are a great many hogs shipped from here. Saturday last the road was full for half a mile, the farmers with their teams and large boxes filled with hogs resembling a circus coming to town. The price now paid is $3.55 per hun dred pounds. Gardens thrive here quite well, and lettuce, radishes, cu cumbers, etc., have been on sale for some time. W. A. DEMr.Eirr. Labor Notes. Two thousand eight hundred wood workers at Chicago have quit work because they were not allowed nine hours' for a day's work with pay for ten hours. The household furniture of Martin Irons has been seized in St. Louis, for payment of house rent. Iron's step--daughter claimed that the property belonged to a neighbor, but the sher iff took it all the same. The tailors' lock-out still continues at New York, about 8,000 men being out. Plans are being perfected to start co-operative shops if the em plovers should persist in keeping their doors closed. The labor troubles have extended to Alaska. The mechanics of Sitka com plain that a missionary is competing with contractors at figures too low to to allow for living wages ; proposing to do the work with Indian bovs from his school. It i3 a curious fact that women who work in the English mines are unusu ally strong and healthy. They have to be at their work in fair weather and foul, and have often to be out all day in the rain, lhere is less ill-health among them than is the case with any other class of women. Policemen lately raided a New Haven, Conn., saloon which was the rendezvous of socialists. The result was a fight in which the proprietor attempted to fire a double-barrelled gun, and his wife showered bottles and glasses upon the officers. Six socialists were arrested after a hard fight. It may be safely said that, while in some localities and in some trades the eight hour system is a success, in the large majority of cases it is a failure, and a general return is being made to the ten hour system. In some occu pations eight hours is as long as a man should labor. A big demonstration of the Knights of Labor occurred at Dover, N. II., on the evening of June 3d, under the auspices Garrison of Hill Assembly of that city. In the street parade 500 Knights participated with two bands of music. At the conclusion of the parade a rally was held in City Hall, where an address was made by F. K. Foster, of Haverhill. A copper bomb about twelve inches long, full' charged and operated by clock-work, was found under the side walk in front of Thos. Griefs saloon in Chicago last Thursday. The works were going when Lieut. Bowles dis covered it, but he lifted it very tender ly and carried it to the Central Sta tion. It is supposed by the officer that the machine was left there by one of the numerous persons of al leged Socialistic tendencies who for months have made the saloon their headquarters. The Century Dictionart. For the past five years the Century Co. has been engaged in preparing a dictionary of the English language, of which Professor William D. Whitney, of Yale College, Is editor-in-chief, the purpose being to make a more comprehensive work than has yet appeared in popular form, to in clude, in addition to a very lull collec tion of individual words in all depart ments of the language, all technical phrases, not self-explaining, in law, the mechanical arts, the sciences, etc. In deed, it is designed to make this diction ary so comple in its definitions of all branches oi science and art that even the specialist will need nothing further. The number ot "new" words In many of these departments is said to be surprisingly great. The dictionary will also have a remarkably complete system of cross- rplerences, and will embody m itself a dictionary of synonyms, which will add greatly to its value. i STATE ITEMS. The Vermont Marble Co., at Rut land has the largest grand list of any one concern in Rutland. Its assessed valuation is 31,226,600. Hiram Atkins, chairman of the Democratic State committee, has called a meeting of the committee at Montpelier June 11, at 7.30 p. ni., to fix the time and place for holding the State convention. George Munroe, alias Robert Bow man, has been brought to Rutland from Chicago by one of Pinkerton's detectives, to answer to an indictment charging him with forging a draft on the Brandon National bank in 1882. He is also wanted for breaking into the express office at Fitchburg, Mass., in 1882, and stealing money. Rev. P. IT. Granger had the misfor tune to break a leg Tuesday morning of last week. It appears that he was superintending some outdoor work a short distance from his house at St. Johnsbury Centre., and attempted to climb over a fence. In doing so he made a misstep, throwing his weight upon one leg in such a way as to break both bones about four inches below the knee. The Spiritualist camp-meeting will be held at Queen City Park, Burling ton, commencing August 17, and clos ing September 13. The speakers en gaged are J. Frank Baxter, Dr. H. B. Storor, Jennie B. Hagan, Mrs. Sarah A. Byrnes, Mrs. Abbie W. Crossett, Mrs. Morse Baker, Mrs. Sarah A. Willey, W. W. J. Colville, Geo. A. Fuller, Mrs. Juliette Yeaw, Fannie Davis Smith, Mrs. Emma Paul, Mrs. Lizzie Manchester, A. E. Stanley and others. A new hotel is being built in the park, with two fine reception rooms, a diuing room 30 by 80 feet and forty or more lodging rooms. The Senator Question. During the past two or three weeks there has been a noticeable falling off in the opposition to the re-election of Senator Edmunds, one of the instan ces being that of the West Randolph Herald, which has been against him from the first, but is now talking in his favor. Shall George F. Edmunds succeed himself? Just now It looks as if he would, for the reason that no body seems to be ready to take the responsibility of making the fight against him. Montpelier Argus. The anti-Edmunds sentiment among Republicans seems to have appreci ably diminished during the past weeks, and it is probable that resolutions will be introduced into the State conven tion indorsing Senator Edmunds' can didacy for re-election. Boston Jour nal. What a Mother Should Do. It is a part of the average mother's creed that her child can do no wrong. If she doesn't acknowledge it she feels it and acts upon it, and is lulled into a false security by it, until her child ren have very likely acquired evil hab its of which she little dreams and which will curse them for a life time. The common school is a good thing, but children do not imbibe unmixed blessedness therefrom. They are quite likely to meet other children from families of lax morals, or none at all, who will teach them bad words or impure thoughts and actions, by which they will be greatly harmed, al beit secretly, unless the ' wise mother forestalls any such danger by plain and unequivocal teaching, both moral and physilogical. How much better for a boy jot girl to learn the truth from the pure lips of a loving mother than from foul mouthed and ignorant companions, in whose obscene conver sations are blende, about ten grains of error to one of truth. "Haste" is not making any waste in the dealing of the administration with the fishery question. While Secreta ry Bayard is patiently waiting the re ply of the British government to his official communication, the Dominion authorities are not idle. The Dominr ion minister of marine has asked the parliament for $50,000 in addition to a sum already voted for the mainte nance of the Canadian fleet of cruisers during the present fishing season ; and preparations are being made to increase the fleet. It is said that if the English government should declare that American fishermen have the right under the existing treaty to pur chase bait as an article of merchan dise in Canadian ports, the Dominion government has under consideration the imposition of a prohibitive export duty on bait. Of course all this is a game that two can play at. A dispatch from Winchester, Va., says : The exercises in this city Dec oration Day were peculiar and Impres sive. A procession, headed by the mayor and a band of music, marched out on the battle field of the Opequon and decorated the Eighth Vermont monument, which stands on the spot where the serious fighting of that day culminated. The procession was made up of Confederate and Union veter ans, marching together in the same files, the veterans and city officials being escorted by the Winchester Light Infantry. Services were held in the National cemetery and at the Vermont monument. Camp No. 4, Confederate veterans, was in line, and a salute was fired in honor of the Union dead. The floral tributes were elegant and profuse. Carrie Houston, only five years old, decked the Eighth Vermont monument with flowers. With Babthood for June comes a sup plement with pattern outlines for the "Gertrude Baby Suit," the invention of a Chicago homeopathic physician, who says he was "the only lady preseut at a certain birth," and was so impressed with the absurdity of the old style of "first toilet" that this simple suit was evolved.

Home Rule received a defeat in the House of Commons Monday, the vote being 311 for the measure to 341 against. The wood-work of-the bedroom in which Robert Burns breathed his last has had to be removed on account of repairs and will be used for binding fac-similes of the first edition of Burns' Poems. A Frankfort Kentuckian who has received a yearly appropriation as a pauper for fifteen years, has applied to have it continued for the next year, as he has bought more land and needs the money to pay for it. A Chinaman at Spokane, W. T, removed the figures 50 from a revenue tamp and placed them on a one dollar greenback in such a manner as to make it appear a $50 note. He did it so skillfully that he got fifty dollars for it but the trick was discov ered and he was arrested. A pickerel was caught in a corn field in the Rock River, 111., bottoms while engaged in "husking corn." The water of the river has covered the bottom for eight months, and much of last year's corn remains ungathered. The fish swim into the fields and nib ble the grains of jcotn out of the husks. A Chicago citizen talks of trans planting one of the big California trees to his summer residence near that city. The one he has selected is 300 feet high and 98 feet in circum ference. It is estimated that the transportation will cost him $18,000. The weight of the leviathan is about 40,000 nounds Little Willie prayed long but inef fectually for a little brother. At last he gave it up as "no use.' Soon after his mother had the pleasure of showing him twin babies. He looked at them a moment and then ex claimed : "How lucky it was that I stopped praying ! There might have been three !" Seven cars of freight train No. 40, Plymouth for Boston were thrown from the track down a bank Thrusday afternoon near Plymouth Station. The cars were demolished and their freight broken and scattered. No one was injured. Several cars were broken up upon the track, causing several hours' delay to trains to and from that town, passengers and baggage having to be shifted from one train to another. A Chicago dealer advertised a fold ing bed by placing it in a show win dow, and employed a colored boy opening and closing it apparently. The local humane society interfered, because the work was thought to be too severe for the lad, but the com mittee felt very cheap when the furni ture man took them down into the cellar and showed them a stout Irish man, who furnished the real power for opening and shutting the bed, by means of a rope and a system of pull eys. It is said that a natural fountain of pure oil has been discovered in Gros Centre Valley, Dak. It is in a cave in the mountains. " In the centre is a bubbling oil fountain, the oil being perfectly pure, and as clear as if fresh from the best oil reftnery. In fact it is the product of A natural refinery, and the most potent forces are en gaged in its manufacture. From deep down in the bowels of the earth comes a sound as of steady churning, and the oil mass heaves and shakes at in tervals as the continued product of the natural refining process is poured into it. The story comes from Newfound land that about thirty-flve years ago a fisherman named Joseph Mills emi grated from that country and settled on one of the Fiji Islands, where he obtained employment from the owner of a large estate. He gained the favor of his employer, and in time became manager. The proprietor died, and being unmarried, bequeathed the estate to Mills. About eighteen months ago Mills died, unmarried and intestate, and his relatives in Newfoundland are the legal inheritors of his property, which is valued at more than a million dollars. Hither to many of the Mills family have been in the poorest circumstances. A special from Aspen, Col., the 3d inst., says : Last evening a party of young ladies climbed to the top of the fire-bell tower, 60 feet high, to obtain a good view of the city. Eppa Stewart stepped to the edge of the tower, and was leaning against a corner post looking over the country, when the janitor, not knowing of the presence of the ladies, seized the bell rope to call a meeting of the fire com pany. The sudden clang of the bell startled Miss Stewart, and she fell from the dizzy height to the pavement Both legs were badly crushed, her left arm broken into splinters and five ribs on the right side were broken and torn loose from the spine. She was alive when picked up, but there was no hope of her recovery.

Y., has been kept a secret long enough; it can and should be done in every family. The Elastic Starchthat is only starch in the United States Is the put up by men who nave a practical knowledge of the laundry profession. It ream res no cookin!?. keeps the iron from sticking and linen from blistering while ironing, and gives shirts, cuffs aud coll ars that stiffness and beautiful polish they have when new, which, everybody knows, keeps them clean twice as long. Beware of imir.atinns. See that the name of J. C. Hubinger fc Bro., New Haven, Conn., is on every package. 225m3 A Sensible Man Would use Kemp's Balsam tor the throat and lungs. It is curing more cases of coughs, colds, asthma, bronchitis, croup, and all throat and troubles, than any other medicine. The proprietor has authorized Geo. E. Woodward to refund your money, if, after taking three-fourths of a bottle, relief is not obtained. Price 50 cents and 91. Trial size free. Farm Notes. Watermelons require a very rich, warm, sandy loam. Keep a sharp lookout in the orchard for the nests of the tent caterpillar. There is usually too much pig pen and not enough pig pasture. Fowls prefer, as well as need, good pure, cold water, especially in warm, sultry weather. This is a season of the year when sheep need special care, particularly the ewes that are in lamb. It will pay to take pains and plant all large, flat seeds, like squash, mel on and Lima beans, edgewise. Mulching the strawberries increases the size of the fruit, as well as the yield. It keeps the berries clean and therefore in a more marketable condi tion. A Maine farmer says that three bushels of plaster on grass land is as effective as are six bushels. He ap plies it just before a rain, after the ground becomes bare in the spring. A new remedy for milk-fever con sists simply in covering the back of the cow with a woolen cloth and then rubbing the spine with a hot flat-iron. The great secret in raising young ducks is not to allow them to get wet. Give them all the water they can drink, in vessels so constructed as to permit them to reach the water only with their bills. There is no doubt that horses often suffer severely from thirst. Regular watering twice or .thrice a day is not enough, especially when exercising and perspiring. In sueh cases thev should frequently have water offered them. It appears that many fruits acquire most of their growth by night. The fruit of the cherry laurel, for instance, has been found by Dr. Krauss of Halle to increase at the rate of ninety per cent, at night and only ten by day, while apples increase eighty per cent, at night and twenty in the daytime. A writer in "Gardening Illustrat ed" bays that one of the simplest and best methods for destroying moss on lawns, is an occasional dressing of freshly slacked lime. Mixed with a small quantity of soot, its whiteness will not become conspicuous and of fensive. Both should be sifted through a fine sieve. It is applied just before rainfalls, in autumu, winter or spring. Hungarian Grass. Henry Blake, our intelligent Hardwick correspond ent, sends the following respecting Hungarian gras3 seed. On well man ured and finely pulverized soil between the first and tenth of June ; and when half the grass is headed out, cure well for hay and you have a better feed for milch cows than any English grass you ever fed. The yield will be in proportion to the condition of the soil It is not unusual to get three tons per acre on greensward, well manured and cultivated. Rural Vermonter. Erysipelas and salt rheum was entirely driven awar troin Airs. J. (J. Anuerson, of Peshtiso, Wis., by Burdock Blood Bitters. Jso equal as a blood puruier. NOTICE.
