Painting; a Bnncta of Grapes, The most truly artistic efforts of the Japanese artists are those which display the simplest moles of delineations, and are generally executed in Indian ink only. Many descriptions have been given by those who have had the op portunity of watching the natives at work, and all hear witness to the re markable quickness of imagination and execution they display. A traveler in the oountry relates how on one occa sion he had the pleasure of observing a screen-painter at work in his studio, which consisted of a portion of the house screened off from the rest by his finished productions, but open to the street. Belug struck with his great freedom of hand, he requested him to draw a bunch of grapes. This was given as a difficult task and test of skill, for the traveler haa In his mind the labored works of bis own country, and naturally expected that, from the time required to depict the fruit, the artist would laugh and shake his head. Judge of his surprise when the artist seized a piece of sereen-paper aud, dip ping the point of his thumb into a dish of Indian Ink, proceeded to make a number of softly-shaded, creseut-like forms close together. Thinking he must have been misunderstood, but saying nothing, ne watched with grow ing interest the rapid movements of his artistic friend. The crescent forms being finished, his first finger and thumb were together dipped into the ink and transferred to the paper, and with a few rapid movements produced two shaded forms of irregular outline. With his thumb-nail he added three dark lines and sundry other trifling touches, and politely handed the finish ed sketch, which displayed a bunch of plump round grapes, with leaves and stalks complete. This was by 110 means a bad illustration ot the ready methods resorted to by the Japanese artists In representing simple objects, for which they are justly celebrated. We have one illustration lu a Japanese book which shows ail artist seated 011 a srool ~,,v •> vti' ring V % s, Wilu nwirnr.v iiunu t*t >• J •• held in eah foot, one in each hand, and one In his mouth. This is doubtless an exaggeration. Another humorous sketch on the same page shows the artists to be of such a transcendent genius, and the -horse he had been painting proved so lifelike, that it be oame endowed with vitality and ran away from the paper. The amazement of the artist is cleverly expressed. How 10 Eat, The notion that appetite is a low de gree of hunger, and hunger an intens i fled form of appetite, dues not seem to be borne out by facts. The two desires or longings are different In their na ture. Appetite is the craving of the apparatus of taste,and sometimes of the digestive organs; while hunger is the demand of organism as a whole or of some of its parts of food. U*e the words appetite and hunger how you may, there are actually two needs o be expressed,and much mi c'iltf arise* from confounding them. The one cry for food which we call appe tite is an affair of habit or cjpr'ce, and may, lor a time at least, be stimulated by appealing to the sense of taste, or promoted by certain cordials and stimu lants; but, looking at tbe matter from a physiological point of view, it is diffi cult to see what we can gain by ex citing the organs of digestion to take food unless the system is in a condition to receive it. The rational mode of prooedure would seem to be to wait the expression of a need in the system —in short, to look to hunger rather than appetite as an incentive to the act of feeding, instead of exciting the palate and sense organs to take food when we have no organic reason to suppose that there is an inner need of it. There are certain evil consequences of the civilized mode of feeding by ap petite on the basis of habit, which it may be useful to point out. First, separating appetite from hunger, and developing it as an independent sense or function, there naturally springs up a fashion of life which may be disoribed as "living to feed." The purveyor of food trades on the tastes and cultivated longings of the consum er, and the consideration what to eat and what to drink comes to occupy a place in tbe self-consciousness which it was probably not intended to fill, and in so far as this is tne case man is more animal, and less spiritual and in tellectual, than he ought to be; al though it may be conceded that the re fined taste of cultivated nature is less offensive than the simple voracity of the savage. There are some who con tend that man is the gainer by the de velopments of his appetite. It this be so, the gain is a good not unmixed with evil. Another drawback is that by severing appetite from hunger we lose the indication of quantity which nature gives with her orders for food. The man who eats a regulated number ot meals daily, with a duly stimulated aud organized habit, probably eats much more in the twenty-tour hours than ins system requii es, or the organ ism as a whole is constituted to doal with. An Extraordinary break of Nature. A singular and beautiful freak of na - ture was shown in a marble mantel at the Cincinnati Exhibition. In one of the onyx pilasters was seen the out lines of a woman's form produced ages ago, when the marble first assumed its growth and consistence. The portrait was clearly defined and traced In the native graining of the stone. Its dis covery was the result of an accident. One of the workmen turned the pilas ter upside down,and the strange beauty of the ieatures of the face at once at tractedJijsAtt*i>tton. Ills employers WfrJtTiKniimoned and the pilaster re versed is now the chief ornament of the mantel. The attitude, with the arms stretchod above the head, closely resembles that of the Greek caryatides, which adorned so many of the old classic temples. The figure is grace ful and delicate, with-limbs of the most exquisite contour. AGRICULTURE. THE Mexican persimmon is as nail tree presenting 110 appearance what ever of our common species. In size and general appesranee of trunk and limbs it looks almost exactly like the crape myrtle growing in our yards or on our lawns; and It inclines to grow in clumps like the crape myrtle. Hut here the resemblance ceases. The leaves are small and look very much like those of the parkleberry (sparkle berry) or winter huckleberry of our eastern Gulf coast —a little darker green,perhaps,and not quite so glossy. They shed in winter. The fruit resem bles that ot the common species very much with two exceptions: It is al ways perfectly smooth, never wrlnk fruit of the common species does when thoroughly ripe, and it is almost jet black. The putp is ot a very dark, brown color, and of an agreeable sweet taste, not quite so sugary as the other kind, and the seeds, though somewhat resembling those of the common spe cies, are much smaller. The fruit is not much "astringent" or "puekery" when green. The people ol Texas where the Mexican persimmon grows make about the same accouut of it that we do of the common species—some like it and some don't. For our own part we like it very much—we think it decidedly a better fruit than that ot the common species, aud entirely more wholesome. Xo eflort has yet been made to improve it—so far as vie know it has never yet been seeu growing in side a cultivated Held. It usually grows in the rocky soils along the base and a short distance up the sides ot ttie mountains. REN HISTORY, — According to a po pular writer it has never been ascer tained when fowls were tirst domesti cated. There are but few allusions to them in the Old Testament, We have abundant evidence of their Doing quite common iu the days of Aristotle, who wrote three hundred years before C hrist, lie speaks of them as famil iarly as a naturalist of the present day ; and uiauy beautiiul allusions are made to the fowl in the Mew Testament. The wild origin of the domestic fowls is not certainly Known. Domestic fowls are numerous in all temperate climates,but become less numerous as you go north. They were found in abundance 011 the inlands of the Pacific Ocean, by their earliest discoverers, Captain Cook lound fowls 011 islands thai had never been visited by civilized man; and the vw y range over which they were distributed, xueoidea the supposition of their having been introduced by Tssmau or any earlier voyager*. THE SUPPLT or CATTLE. — It seems to be the opinion of liiose who have ex amined this matter pretty thoroughly, that a considerable decrease will be found 111 the stock of the United States and territories, after this year's ship ments are over. We are of opinion that this may be the case in regard to such as are sufficient well bred for shipment to foreign markets, but as to inferior stock, we question as to whether much, if any deficiency will be found. Yet in any event there will unquestionably be a considerable advance 111 the price of cattle in another year, as well as in sheep and swine, 'liiere arc two rea sons why this may be so; the first of which is the greatly increased tide of immigrants to our country this season, who will be consumers instead of pro ducers for a twelvemonth to come, aud the second reason is, so numerous aie the losses sustained in Great Britian and Ireland during the past eighteen months, aud domestic animals, that their wants for this year will, doubt less, be larger than tne past lias been. CLEANSING FRUIT TREES.— Autumn is the best time 10 cleanse iruit-trees. and indeed all plants, irom scales and other insects. Now the fruit trees can be handled with less liability of break ing buds and spurs than in the, spring after the buds have begun to swell,and the work will be as effective now as then. Uoe strong soapsuds of whale oil soap. Apply it with a stiff* brush ; and do not confine the washing 10 the trunk,, but go over all tbe small branch es and everywhere 011 the iree where scales arc louud. CUTTING CORN.— When the corn grains are glazed, the crop may be cut. Delay alter that only hardens the fod der aud deteriorates it. Topping the corn, that is, cutting off' the stalks above the ears and curing these, whicn are the best part of the lodder, is a good practice where the closest economy is not necessary. Sometimes labor costs more than the product of the labor; then it is best to let the work go undone. Yet,as a rule, economy.in the smallest things on a farm is profitable. WHEN the 3hrewd small boy who is left alone in the house during the even ing makes such a mess of his raid on the pie-closet that it Is bound to be no ticed when his parents return, he hies him to his room, puts a pillow in his bed to represent himself, extinguishes the gas and gets under the bed. And when the old- man comes up stairs, madder than a wet cat and without stopping to light the gas, lathers that pillow with a trunk strap, the boy yells as though be was getting it, and the old man goes off satisfied. That's the sort of boy who will grow up to run ward caucuses and be a Senator. A WIFE who had been lecturing her husband for coming home intoxicated became incensed at his indifference, and exclaimed, "Oh, that I could wring tears of anguish from your eyes!" To winch the hardened wretch iiic-eough ed, 'Tai 'tain't no use, old woman, to bo-bore for water here." THE young man WHO pretends to have been "one of the boys," and de lights to tell his young lady friends of his mad freaks, would be disgusted with the fair one who should match his reminiscences by similar excerpts from her own biography. Why is this so? IN speaking of a clerical friend who possesses a very rubicund countenance, some one said, the other day, "I don't think he drinks; in fact, I know he does .not, for he told me so; but he prob&biy sleeps in a bed with very red curtains." MOTHER, newly bereaved of a baby, tosurviving child, aged G; "Tommy's an angel now, Mary." "Like the angels in my picture book, mamma?" "Yes, dear." "With white wings, too?" "Yes, dear." "Has he got fleas in them, like my pigeons ?" WHEN a Denver deacon forgets him self and remarks to the man who doesn't notice the contribution-box, "Are you going to chip?" the folks in the congregation wink at each other and the clergyman tries to look as though he doesn't see where the fun comes in. A DOG frequently worries a cat, but man, who is nobler than the dog, wor ries himself. DOMESTIC. I HERE are some ambrosial pancakes fit. for the gods; Put four eggfC,a pinch of salt, and or.o of sugar and three tablespoon til's of flour In an earthen pan, beat 1* all up with one quart of milk until very light.

These pancakes come secondary to some veal outlets—not the tasteless dry veal cut lets, innutritions and indigestible, Ail ing the father of the family with hy pochondriacal and ghastly sensations, hut take a stew or sauce pan and put in It one ounce of beef at-lpping, one-half ounce of butter, tour or live cloves of garlic finely chopped, and a little salt. When brown, mineeup the heart of a white cabbage well washed and dried, stir repeatedly and leave it to stew for two and a half hours. Cut some thin cutlets of veal, cover them with a spoonful of chopped parsley, the same ot onion and cons free of tomatoes, a lit tle cayenne pepper and salt, and a tablespoon!ul of vinegar mixed togeth er. Fry in oil or butter, lay on the cabbage mixture and serve. OATMKALContains three times as much bratn-feedingeleineiit and more food for muscle than wheat. Of the "pin headed oatmeal" take eight ounces, mix thoroughly in cold water, stir into two quarts ot boiling water, add half a teaspoon fill of salt, stir occasionally, boil from one hour to an hour and half in a farina kettle. Serve hot with sweet milk, sirup or butter, if prefer red, meat gravy. A meat gravy for adding piquancy to something hot for breakfast if prepared iu this way will he found exceedingly useful. Take four onions and fry them brown in but ter (not to be burned), toa.-t a slice ot bread hard and brown, place these in a stew pan with some bones, pieces of meat and sweet herbs, add sufficient water aud stew until a thick gravy is formed emitting an agreeable odor; add pepper and salt, strain it and keep it in a cold place till needed. A deli cate appetite will tind this deliciously poured over well cooked rice or toasted muffins. Dimuks should Hi ways be rinsed in clear water after having been washed in soap-suds. Nothing Is more un pleasant at the table tnan to notice a certain stickiness thai soap is likely to leave. It Is necessary also from a san itary point of view; tae caustic alkali is corrosive and unwholesome, and the urease is often impure. It is a simple matter to make hard soap which is not only agreeable to use but which has the great merit 01 cleanliness. To seven pounds ot tallow use three pounds of rosin, two pounds of potash and six gallons oi water; boil for three hours, or better still for Ave; turn from the kettle into a washtub; let It stand all night. In the morning cut into bars and lay them on a table or board in the sun to harden for two or throe day*. This quantity will last a family of Jour persons a year if used for ordinary household purposes. How TO MAKE ±IENS LAY.—A cor respondent informs us that, while ou a visit in the tail to a friend, lie was surprised to *oe tlie number of eggs lie daily obtained. He had but sixteen h ns, and the product per diem aver aged thirteen eggs, lie was in the habit of giving 011 every alternate day, a teaspoonful and a quarter of cayenne pepper, mixed wi;h a soft food, und took care that caca lien obtained her share. The experiment of omitting the pepper was tried, when it was found that the number of eggs was re duced each trial ironi live to six daily. Our correspondent believes that the moderate use of tills stimulant not only increases tbe number of eggs, but ef fectual wards off diseases to which chickens are subject. APPLE FRUIT CAKE. — Soak two cups dried apples over night; ill the morn ing drain ane chop tine in chopping howl; add one cup oi molasses and let it boil slowly ou back of stove three or four hours, until the molas.es has thickened; let it cool; and one and a Half cups of brown sugar, one cup sour milk, one teaspoonful each ot cloves, allspice and cinnamon, one teaspoon ful soda, three eggs, three and one-halt cups of fionr: cake In two square tins or one large five quart basin ; if baked in the latter bake slowly two and a Half hours. This will keep six mouths. LEMON SYRUP. — The lemon syrup bougiit at the tores can be made at home much cneaper. Take a pound of Havana sugar, boii it in water down to a quart, drop in the white of an egg to clarify it, strain it, add one quarter of an ounce of tartaric or citric acid. If you do not nnd it sour enough after it has stood two or three days, add more of the acid, A few drops of oil of lemon Improve it. RICK CAKES. — Boil rice until it is soft, and while warm make it into cakes. Dip tue cakes info a beaten egg, and then roll them in Indian meal till thoroughly coated. This done,fry them in bacon fat, which is better than butter for this purpose. Serve them with sauce, ox with butter, or with cream and sugar. BARLEY i CODING. — Wash Half a pint of pearl barie.y, put it into a stew pan with three pints of milk, a quarter of a pound of sugar and a little nutmeg at the corner o the stove; when proper ly swelled taxe it out, flavor to taste, add lour eggs and boil in a basdn for one hour; sexve with black cherry ar rowroot sauce. I'ATHENIA PUDDING. —One quart of milK, five eggs; five tabiespoonfuls of flour; bring 'he milk to a boil, reserv ing enough to wet the flour; then stir in the wet flour while hot; when cool stir in the beaten eggs, reserving the whites of two; bake one-half hour,and when cool snnead over an icing made from llie beaten whites and powdered SUgai.

A GALVESTON man met a gentleman from northern Texas, and asked how a certain mutual friend was corning on. "He is doing very well," was the re ply. "What business is he at?" "He lias got the softest thing in the world of it. He bought a lot of Mexican donkeys at San Antonio for three dol lars apiece, and having taken thorn up to liLs ranche, he clears twenty-seven dollars a head on them." "I)o they bring such high prices?" "No, but ho lets the railroad trains run over tlieui, and the company lias to pay hiiu thirty dollars apiece for 'em."

Morgan, of Mew Car tie, Lincoln Maine, says: "Five years age 1 was a dreadful suQerer from uterine troubles. Having exhausted the skill of three physicians, I was completely discouraged, and so weak I could with difficulty cross the room alone. I began taking lour 'Favorite Prescription' and using the local treatment recommended in your' Common *sne ledlcal Adviser.' 1 commenced to improve at once. In three months I was perfectly cured, and have had no trouble since. 1 wrote a letter to my family paper, briefly mentioning how my health had been restored, and offering to send the full particulars to any one writing me for ttkm and enclotinm a stomped envelope jar reply. I have received over tour hundred letters. In reply, I have describee my case and the treatment used, and earnestly advised them to 'do likewise.' From a great many I have received second letters of thanks, stating the.' they had commenced the use of Favorite Preecrtp. ttou, sent for the 'Medical Adviser,' and applied the local treatment so fully and plainly laid down therein, and were much better already." 3 Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription Is sold by all druggists % • "WT crvexjs UDT should read "The People's Common Bouse Medical Adviser." lu wh.ca pogre ars develed to the eeaatderatlea at these dfaeeaes peculiar to Wemea. fleei, post-paid, 1 ™- W9ALTI BtnHAXT IDKAJfc JJfIOOJJHH.
