BALKY HORSES. — As long as we can re
member we have nad of remedies for
balky horses, and they have been pretty
much of the sains nature, to wit : To
examine the harness on one side then on
the ether, then jump into the wagon "and
drive off. Very nice, but try it, Nixt
lake the horse out of the shifts, and make
him go round and round until he is giddy,
eta Rather difficult, we tllink, to make
a hcrse giddy, Next, to place the hand
over the horse's note and hold it there,
preventing him from breathing until he
wants to go. Easy to try. Next, take a
couple of turns ot stout twine around the
foreleg just below the knte, tight enough
for the horse to feel, aud tie m a bow not.
lie will at once stai , aud the string can
be removed. .Next lake the tail ot the
horse between the hind legs and tie by a
cord to the saddle-girth. Next, lie a string
around the horse's ear close to his head.
There is anotner which we know lrcqtieut
ly answers, which is to eaich up a hand
ful of dirt and force it into the mouth
of ihe animal. But there is another, the
one we have adopted in ail cases,and have
never yet kuowu to fail. It is to pass a
twiue around the lower jaw, and of course
below tbe tongue, and tie it quite tight
over the top of the head, leaving an end of
two or three leet, by which to pull at,
walking iu front of the horse. This will
be tound to be a remedy in all cases li
HOUSE LIKES Once a year the house
linen sLould be carefully looked over and
arranged, buck sheets and pill w-eases
as have seen the largest share of their
days of usefulness aud yet are still unbro
ken, should be laid carefully aside, laat
they may come into service when au un
usual number of bed changes are required.
Supply their places wiib new ones, and
thus keep an abuudeuce of fresh kev dmg
for emergei c es. The kitchen table cloths
if they threaten to break, should be cut
up, hemmed, and devoted to the dish wash
ing department, and new of unbleach
ed linen damask made to take their places.
Glass wiping cloths should not be ot elder
ly linen, because of its tell-tale fibres, and
because there is a linen provided for glass
sufficiently inexpensive tor the purpose of
even the most economical housewife.
Hand towels should be lookod over and
rep'enisht-d. Tuose for the kitchen should
be devidid and doomed to the floor-cloth
hooks, aDd others, always wiih a tape
loop at each end of them where a roller is
not in use, should take the place of the
old towels. There can hardly be too
many towels in tbe kitchen. The dining
room tubie cloths may Le cut iuio large
towels and neat v trimmed.
CTLIBIAC. — Tbe Kussiau culibiac is made
of au onioa chopped and placed over the
fire with two ouuees of butter uutil the
latter melts; meantime c,' small head of
white cabbage is chopped and added to
the onion, and the cooking process is
slowly advanced uutil the cabbage is ten
der ; it is then seasoned, slightly thicken
ed with white sauce or flour and butter
rubbed to a smooth paste, mixed with half
a dozen cold hard boiled eggs aud a table
spoonful of parsely chopped together, aud
finished with a little vinegar or sour wine;
this preparation of cabbage is put into a
dish hued with pastry raised with yeast
and enriched with eggs and butter; the
surface of the pie thus formed is dusted
with bread crumbs, and it is then baked
in a moderate oven, and served hot.
SOR SIS PUDDING.- Ingredients: Three
sweet oranges, three-fourths pound sugar,
one-half pound sweet almonds, rose water,
sixteen eggs, one pound tresli butter, puff
paste. Take the outside rinds of the
oraDge: boil in several waters uutil tender;
pound them iu a mortar with the sugar,
blanch the almcDds and beat them very
tine with rose water to keep them from
boiling. Break the eggs and froth six of
the whites; beat yery light yolks and
remaining whites; cream the butter and
beat all the ingredients together uutil per
fee'ly light. Then line pie plates with
a thin puff paste, and bake. Bift sugar
over tops of the pudding when drawn
from the oven.
Y'EAST THAT WILL KKEU a MONTH.—
Boil a handful of hops, strait, off the wa
ter, grate a dozen raw potatoes into this
water, set it ou to boil, mix a teacup of
flour with cold water and, the sa ■ e as
for gravy thickening, then stir it into the
potato water, add to this encugh boiling
water to make six quarts in all. Bet it
away to cool in a stone jar and when cool
put into it a teacuplul of good yeast and
a teacupfui of brown sugar. This yeast
will foam up as white as whipped cream.
One pint will do for a large butch of bread.
FRICASSEE OF USI SB. —Feel lwo or
three dozen of the very small, round, white
onions; sprinkle them with salt, lei them
remain lor half an hour, then roll them
upon a cloth to dry them slightly, and
dredge with flour; throw them iuto a stew
pan in which you have melted two oun
ces of fresh butter,toss them over a gentle
fire for five minutes, drain the fat from
them, add a pint of rich milk, minced le
mon peel, white pepper, salt auu butter.
Simmer ten minutes and serve in sauce.
STEWED VEAL. —Cut your meat in piic S
wash them clean, put them into the din
ner-pot, add thie3 pints of water, put in
one onion, some pepper and salt, let it
stew one hour; then add potatoes si ced
and make a crust of sour milk or cream -
tartar, and put in and stew till the pota
toes are done, about half an hour; the crust
may be made into biscuits. Crumbs of
any kind of fresh meai may be used iu mak
ing a stew.
RICE CHICKEN. —Cover the bottom of a
pudding dish with slices of broiled ham :
cut up a broiled chicken and nearly fill the
dish ; pour in the gravy or melted butter
to fill the dish, and chopped onions if you
like, or a little curry-powder, which is
better; then add boi ed rice to fill ail in
terstices and to cover the top thick.

RED ants may be banished from a pan
try or store-room by strewing the shelves
with a.small quantity of cloves either
whole or ground. We use the former, as
not being so likely to get into food placed
upon the shelves. The cloves should be
renewed occasionally, as after a time,they
lose their strength and efficacy.
WHEN a cow disgorges her food it is a
symptom of irritation in the stomach and
indigestion, probably arising from the pres
ence of too much acid. Give her two
drachms of carbonate of ammonia, with
one ounce of ground ginger, in some scald
ed bran once a day for a week. After
ward she should have a little salt and
pounded chalk to lick every day as long as
she will take it.
A GOOD hay cutter will save its cost in
one season. Hay or straw is not made
more nutntious but it is more easily masti
cated when chaffed ; and a saving of exer
tion is equivalent to a saving of food.
SPENT tan-bark has been plowed into a

THE vulgar term sweeny is applied to a
real or imaginary wasting of the muscles
cf the extremities, and mostly referred to
as being located in the shoulder or about
the crupper. It is commonly regarded as a
special evil, and all sorts of cruel practices
and nostrums are resorted to for its cure.
The cause or causes of a generally negative
result of the treatmeut applied is simply
this, that sweeny, or more properly speak
ing, wasting or atrophy of the muscles of
the horse's limb is, in the plurality of cases
merely one of the results of chronic disease
of some part of the limb, sueli as a painful
corn, navicular disease aud contracted
feet, or ringbone, spavin, Ac. If a cure of
these ailments is possible the so-called
sweeny will either gradually disappear in
the course of time or will yield to treat
ment; otherwise the cure of sweeny will
prove a failure. In young horses, sweeny,
or wasting of the muscles of the shoulder,
is often a constquence of unsteady pulling
wiih au ill-tilling collar. In such a case,
relieve the animal from work, and apply
for some time, ouce or twice a day, a por
tion of equal parts of tincture of canlha
ruics ami oil ot turpentine. The contents
of the bottle should he shaken while
applyiug the saute. Liberty outdoors, on
pasture, will l>e of additional ,benefit.
Subsequently, give only tight work in
breast harness or iu a sot padded, well tit
ling collar, until the auiuial becomes used
BE FAIR TO THE FORESTS. — Animal and
vegetable lite go lian 1 in baud, but it is not
generally understood that the former is the
"little sister" and that the latter is the
most iudepeudent of the two. Trees, with
a chance given, grow without the special
care of man. Without trees aud other
vegetable life man would puss away aud
he " a lost art." Leaving out ot the ques
tiou the wickedness of tue world found iu
the wuolesale destruction of our forests, it
will be well to consider the fact that the
earth can be made uninhabitable by de
priving it of its sources of moisture, which
are uoihing more or less than the forests.
There is a large class of intelligent men
who firmly believe that the rapid decrease
ot the woods of the West is already chang
ing the climate of the entire country.
People should piant young trees where old
ones are puiled down, and never forget
that it is a christian as well us sanitary
TRY IT. — A gentleman has informed us
of a very simple and sure cure for treating
cuts and st ars made by stepping on nails, A.'.
Every one kuows the great danger of stop
ping on a rust y nail, as, iu a great many ca es
lockjaw sets in aud death is the result. The
remedy is grated beets, made into a pulp,
which, if applied to the cut, will almost
immediately givejrelief. He says a liorse of
bis stepped ou a tail, from which he suf
fered excruciating pain, aud was unable to
eat. He was thought to be taking lockjaw
when the gentleman applied the beets and
in fifteen minutes tbe animal was eating
h iy, and entirely recovered. A gentleman
in this town was so unfortunate as to run
a nail into ins band from which be suffered
intense agon v. The same remedy was ap
plied ami in a short time the patient f 11
asleep. Several other cases might be cited
but these will suffice. The gentleman says
.he cure is a g>od one and should uot le

DOST WHIT A FRIGHTENED IIORSE.— It
seems to lie a characteristic failing of most
coachmen to lay the lash upon a horse that
exhibits f ear at au object in the street or
beside the road. Mr. Bergh, President of
the Bociety of the Prevention of Cruelty
to Auimals, says in the organ of that
society w hat every reasonable being ought
to know, aud that is to never whip a horse
for becoming frightened at any object by
the roaalside, for if he sees a stump, a log,
or a heap of tan-bark in the road, aud,
while he ,is eyeing it carefully, aud about
to pass it, you strike him with the whip, ii
is the log, or stump, or tfie tan-bark thai is
hurting him in his way of reasoning, aud
the next time he will be more frighiene 1.
Give bim to smell all these objects and use
tbe bridle to assist you in bringing him
carefully to those objects of fear.
FEEDING PIGS. — Pigs that are to be
marketed this year should be pushed hard
from the beginuiug. If allowed to stand
still for a day there will be a loss. Ground
oats and corn mixed, or ground corn with
wheat middlings, will make a good slop
for the pigs; soaked corn will also be
highly relisued, and will be found well
adapted to keeping the pigs iu high flesh ;
but as soon as the coru is fairlv iu milk,
that will be found the best of all fattening
foods. Oa the other hand, if pigs are lo
be kept over the winter there should be no
stimulating or forcing. Give them the run
of a clover field the first summer, with a
small allowance of grain.
T HE best cider is made us late ic the fall
as possible aud from clean, sound apples.
To keep it through the winter aud for a
year or more—barrel imuiedia ely and re
move it to a cool vault or cellar, where it
should remain until February or Match,
when it should be put in strong bottles and
tirmly wired down, lay them ou the ground
or shelves where the temperature is cool
and uniform, and the cider w ill not ripen
too rapidly or freeze. If the citler be
fore barrelling be filtered through saud, it
will probably keep bcttei and be free from
CAUSES apparently very slight may often
produce the most maikcd results in germi
nation. The smaller the seed the more
likely in general is it to be influenced by
almost imperceptible causes. In sowing
turnips those farmers who raise large
quantities not infrequently remark that in
dry, warm days a vast difference is made
in the crops between planting the seed in
tbe fresh, moist soil, just alter the mark
ing-out plough, aud in planting after the
soil has had two cr three hours to dry.
FREQUENTLY washing with soapsuds,
says Colonel F. D. Curtis, in the Rural
New Yorker, does pigs a great deal of
good ai.d should always be practiced if
they get dirty. Y'oung pigs will never
thrive well in a filthy den. If the dam is
unclean the pigs are liable, when suckling,
to get sore about tbe bead and around their
mouths, which will stunt them. When
this is the case tbey should be thoroughly
washed and oiled.
THE following drink tor relieving sick
ness of the stomach is said to be very pal
atable and agreeable: Beat up one egg
very well say twenty minutes, then add fresh
milk one pint, water onepint, sugar to make
it palatable ; boil, and let it'eool; drink
when cold, if it becomes curds and whey
it is useless.
FLIES may be eft'ctually disposed of
without the use of poison. Take half a
teaspoonful of black pepper in powder,
one teaspooDful of cream. Mix them well
together, and place them in a room on a
plate where flies are troublesome, and they
will soon disappear.
PASTURES that have been fed a few sea
sons will generally produce more milk, or
more fat, than those which have been
newly seeded down.

drops to put iu the aching tooth there was
a slight sizzling noise, a hole in the roof of
the house and two individuals running
about the room without a hair left on
their heads and their clothing in shreds.
However, the tooth stopped aching.
4i Have you spoken to pa about that
