The Egyptian Desert.
The moment we leave the banks of
the Nile, we enter a world entirely
strange and new —a waterless land,
without rivers, creeks, rivulets, or
springe; nothing but scanty and more
or less brackish wells, at long intei
vals; and in the mountainous regions,
some natural rocky reservoirs, where
the rare rain water collects in the
brief and uncertain rainy season.
When the writer crossed the Eastern
Desert in the fall of 1573, there had
been no rain for three years; so that
the lirßt thing to be provided in start
ing was a supply of water sufficient to
last from the Nile to the first well,and
then from each well to the next. In
carrying the water, the natives em
ploy exclusively goat and ox skins.
When a goat la killed, they cut off his
head and legs at the hocks and knees;
aud alter splitting the skin a short
way down his breast, turn him out of
his jacket by pulling it off like a stock
ing. After the hide is cured, the legs
are tightly tied up, leaving only the
neck open ; and thus a large bottle is
formed capable of holding from six to
ten gallons according to the size of the
defunct gcat. These water-skias,
called girbehs, after a few days' use,
keep the water very sweet. In the ex
cessive heat of the desert, however,
they lose a great quantity of their con
tents by evaporation. Military trains,
in addition, are supplied flatten
ed zinc barrels, whose sliope is adapted
lor hanging to the pack-saddles. These
have screw stoppers, which prevent
111 leakage and evaporation. The wa
ter carried in the gt. behs in the sun,
gets quite warm, and that in the zinc
barrels almost boils. As so in, there
fore, as the traveler gets to camp, a
potion of water is poured out into
open skins and liung on tripods in the
shade; then, Ui the course of half an
h*ur it becomes drinkable, and by
midnight Is as cold as fresh spring
As a consequence, water in the des
ert is a very preeious possession; for
should the traveler find that the well
on which he relied has gone dry, It
may mean death to him in one of its
cruel est forms. In that waterless
laud, therefore, even the pious Arab
abstains from his religious ablutions
belore prayer, liis law* permitting him
in such a case to wash his hands and
feet with sand. As a rule, the water
found in the scattered wells is very bad.
The first thing on arriving at a well
is to taste its water, and every one
takes a sip, rolling it in his mouth and
testing it, as epicures do rare wines.
Great is the joy If it is pronounced
"sweet water;" but when the guides
say "not good," you know it is a
strong solution of Lpsoni salts. The
Arabs divide their deserts into two
kinds. What they call wilderness,be
ing diversitled by valleys or water
eourses, where their flocks can wan
der and find pasture. The second is
the atmour, or desert proper, consist
ing of hard gravel, diversjfled by zones
of deep sands, rocky belts, and rugged
defiles. It is absolutely and entirely
institute of all vegetation. Xot a tree,
not a bush,not a blade of grass relieves
the eyes, which are painfully affected
by the fierce reflection of the sunlight
upon the yellow sand. Xo shade
whatever is to be found, unless it is
east by some great rock. These at
mours, generally nine or ten days
journey across, are like oceans, which
you may traverse on your four-footed
ship, but where you may not farryfand
where caravans cross each other like
vessels on the ocean.
Here is a picture of a desert journey
with its terrlb'e privatious and ex
periences. It is now May, 1875. The
sun is shining vertically over our
head?. We are on the west of the
!Nile, on the desolate atmours which
seperate the river from the hardly less
barren plains of Kordofan. A more
parched, blasted, and blighted coun
try than it is at this period, cannot be
conceived. It is the enl of the dry
season, and half of the rare wells are
exhausted; aud tho?e which are not,
fuin'sed only a scanty supply of
brackish water at temperatures oi
eighty degrees or more. The deeper
the walls, the warmer the water. The
marshes are perfectly terrible, and yet
it is worse to halt during the day than
to keep moving; for under the tents
the heat redoubles as in a hothouse,
making it irnpo sible to nst or sleep.
Tuus we march from earliest dawn
often till night; lor we must make the
distance between the wells before our
water gives out. On the burning sand
the sun beats down with a fierceness
which cannot be described. The bar
rel of your gun, the stirrup of your
s dJle, blister your hand and your
foot. The thermometer rises to a hun
dred and fifty degrees in the sun; and
in spite of the protection of your white
helmet, a heavy silk scarf over it, and
the umbrella you carry, your skin
peels off in blisrers, and yonr brain
almost boils in your skull.
Thlnga Worth Knowing.
That boiling water will remove tea
stains and many fruit stains; pour the
water through the stain, and thus pre
vent ft from spreading over the fabric.
That ripe tomatoes will remove ink
and other stains from white cloth; also
from the hands. That a teaspoonful
af turpentine, boiled with white
clothes,will aid the whitening process.
Tiiat boiled starch is much improved
by the addition of a little spermaceti
or a little salt, or both, or a little gum
arable dissolved. That beeswax and
salt will make flat-irons as clean and
smooth as glass; tie a lump of wax in
a rag, and keep it lor that purpose;
when the irons are hot, rub them with
the wax rag,then scour with a paper or
rag sprinkled with salt. That kero
sene will soften boots or shoes which
have te?n hardened by water, and
render them as pliable as when new.
That kerosene will make tin tea-ket
tles as blight as new; saturate awool
tn rag and rub with it; it will also
remove stains from clean varnished
FARM AND GARDEN*
ERGOT IN GRASS—An Investigation
in New York, in order to ascertain
the cause of frequent diseases among
neat cattle in winter time, has been ex
amining various grasses, and finds that
ergot not infrequently exists among
them. ''June grass" (poa proteusis)
he says, when allowed to remain un
cut until late In the seas in, contains no
inconsiderable quantity, dindlar gras
ses, especially the well-known "Whit
etop," ( Dauthonia Spicata) Is often
made poisonous by its presence. This
grass is bad enough its best estate,
having so small a quantity of phos
phoric add as to beineauable of sup
porting life tor a long period, but
when to its innutritions substance is
added a poison, the result ot feeding
it is disease and death. The ergot is a
sort of accumulative poison, taking
possession of the system and gradually
but surely bringing disease.
This dauthonia is very prevalent 011
exhausted soils, where no nutritious
feed can grow, because the soil has no
material of which to manufacture nu
tritious products. Hence the truthful
ness of the remark of the unlettered
couutrymau who said be had found
thai manure would kill whitetop
Soils producing this variety of
grass generally in ed an application
dissolved bone, or fine ground bono
meal,powdered Charleston reck, bone
black, or somothing that will supply
the wanting element, phosphoric acid.
Hence our well made superphosphates
are profitable when applied to such
soils. Hut ground boue would be more
economical, for that contains a higher
percent of the needed material, and is
usually cheaper per ton.

POULTRY MANURE. —Poultiy manure
is by tar ihe most valuable lertiltzer
proaueed on farms. Fowls eat con
centrated lood that is rich and nitro
gen and phosphorus, end their drop
pings partake ot the nature of the food
they devour. Grain, the seeds of
small plants, meat, and insect produce,
wheu decomposed hy the action 01 the
digestive apparatus, richer fertil'z ng
material than grass, hay. and straw.
Besides, birds yokl their urine in a
solid form, and combined with the
excrement, that is usual.y solid. As
a consequence it Is not liable to be
wasted if the manure is rightly cared
for. Poultry manure is about as
valuable as the best Peruvian guano.
To make it of the highest value as a
fertilizer, however, it must be stored,
and applied to the ground with care.
Kxpoted to the weather it will be dis
solved by rain and carried off. lhaeed
iu large heaps it heats and the am
monia is driven oil'and lost. Applied
to the soil in too liberal quantities, es
pecially when fresh, it is liable to des
troy Hie vitality of seeds and to kill
delicate plants. It should be stored in
a dry place and in comparatively
small lots so it will not be injured by
moisture and not ferment, it is bet.er
to mix it with dried peat, road dui,
or some other substance that w ill aid
iu keeping it dry and tend to arrest
fermentation. The best results attend
its use when it is well beaten up and
very thoroughly mixed with these
substances belore it is applied to the
soil. Lime and ashes should be kept
from it. as they would act upon it in
such a manner as to liberate ammonia.
PERIODICAL OPTHALMIA, OR MOON
BLINDNESS.—This disease, to which
horses are subject, is caused by con
stitutional disposition, or by the pun
gent vapors winch 1111 the air of un
clean stables. It appears as a bluish
cloud in the center of the eye, the cor
ner which gradually thickens, and an
increasing inflammation of the whoie
organ uniil the horse Is unable to see,
when the inflammation is resolveu
into a liee discharge, the film dis
appears, and temporaiy relief is ob
tained lor three or four weeks more.
Each attack is worse than the pre
ceding one, until a cataract is formed
and permanent blindness occurs. The
treatment is to remove the causes, to
avoid any irii ating c reunistances, to
give a fuU dose of sal s twelve 10
sixteeu ounces, (two ouuce do-es are
useless,) and wnen the fever is re
lieved to maintain good health by the
best of feeding, not using much corn,
but more bran and linseed, and by
strengthening the eyes by cold bath
ing and the occasional use of a lotion
01 one grain of sulphate of zinc in one
ouuce of rain-water, a little of which
should be put in the eyes.
PACKING SOFT FRUITS. —The London
Journal of Horticulture says quite as
much pleasure has been felt upon being
informed of the satisfactory condition
of soft fruits after a journey, as In
winning a well-contested pr r ze at a
flower show. The plan which has
proved perfectly successful,and which
is new invariably followed whenever
fruit Is sent by rail, is to wrap each
bunch of grapes or fruit of ether kinds
in soft tissue pi par, surrounding It
wilh a slight pa<'dinv of wheat bran
as the fruit Is p'aced side by side in
the box. The paper Is put upon the
fruit in plain folds, and not twisted
into hard corners, which may press
into the fruit and spoil It. Much care
is taken to have each fruit thoroughly
enveloped in bran, which is al.-o set
tled into as compact a mass as possible
by slightly jarring each box uj on the
packing ben h alter the first layer is
put in, and when it is quite full a sheet
of paper is put upon the bran and the
hinged lid closed by hooks and eyelets
of copper wire, and securely corded.
If this excellent old method is only
done correctly all risk of failure is
BREAKING HORSES. —The wild horse,
as well as others, at the Falkland Is
lands, are often broken in by tying
them with a raw-hide halter to a post,
and leaving tlem for several days
without food or wafer. After long
ineffectual struggles to break loose,
the animals become entirely con
vinced of the ab.-olute power over
them of the halter, and in futme be
come cowed and docile directly a hal
ter or lasso is over their heads. The
wild horses when broken in, are very
tame and quiet to ride.

rule, to make them feel the bit at all,
in order to turn them. Merely h .ymg
the part of the reins i 1 >se to the hand
against that side of the neck from
which they are wanted to turn is
snfficient. Well-broken horses can be
turntd round and in a circle by this
means by a gentle touch on the neck
It in considered by M. Perisse that it
is a.mi st certain that the ancient
Egyptians and Phoenicians used steel,
il, indeed, they din not make it.
How TO MAKK A POULTICK.—Dr.
Brunton gives the following useful
hints 011 this subject: The common
practice of making poultices by mix
ing linseed meal with hot water and
applying It directly to the skin Is
quite wrong, because if we do not
wish to burn the patient we must wait
until a great portion of the heat has
been lost. The prope- method is to
make a flannel bag, the size of the
poultice required, to till this with the
linseed poultice, as hot as It can pos
sible be made, ami put between this
and the skin a second flannel, so there
shall be at least two thicknesses of
flannel between the skin and the poul
tice itselt. Above the poultice should
he placed more flannel, or a piece of
cotton wool, to prevent It from get
ting cold. By this method we are
able to apply the linseed meal boiling
hot, without burning the patient, and
the heat, gradually diffusing through
the flannel, aifords a grateful sense ol
relief, which cannot be obtained by
other means. There are few ways in
whi'fii such marked relief Is given to
abdominal pain, as by the application
ofa poultice In tins maimer.
HOMK-MAUK CANDY—AII children
