EGG 9 vs. MEAT. —Would it not be wise
to substitute more eggs for meat in our
daily diet? About one-third of the weight
of an egg is solid nutriment. This is more
than can be said of meat. There are no
bones, no tough pieces that have to be laid
aside. A good egg is made up of ten
parts shell, sixty parts white and thirty parts
yelk. The whiteof au egg contains sixty
six per cent, water, the yelk fifty-two per
cent. Practically an egg is animal food,
and yet theie is none of the disagreeable
work of the butcher necessary to obtain it.
The vegetarians of England use eggs freely,
and many of these meu are eighty ami
ninety years old, and have been remakably
free fro u illness. Eggs are best when
cooked four minutes. This takes away the
animal taste that is offensive to some, but
does not harden the white or yelk so as to
make them hard to digest, Au egg if
cooked very hard is difficult of digestion
except by those of stout stomachs; such
eggs should be eaten with bread masticated
very finely. An egg spread on toast is
food fit for a king, if kings deserve any
better food than anybody else, which is
doubtful. Fried eggs are less wholesome
thau boiled ones. An egg dropped into
hot water is not only a clean aiul handsome,
but a delicious morsel. Most people spoil
the taste of tin ir eggs by adding pepper
and salt, A little sweet butler is the bes
dressing. Eggs contain much phospho us,
which is suppled to be usetul to those
who use their brains much.
CLOSER FARMING.— The subdivision of
farms by the tuiure farmer of East Penn
sylvania means a chauge and a diversity of
products, no less than the competition of
other sections. For it is plain that if an
acre can be made to produce SIOO, where
before four acres produced $25 each, the
same area will support just four times the
former amount of agr cultural occupation,
whether by new methods and increased
care the yield is of the same product as
before or by the iuireduction of a new
interest the cultivation of the lauds is
turned to better advantage. Up to a cer
tain point there can be no doubt that two
blades of grass may le made to trow
where only oue grew; and where the far
mer who now raises fifteeu bushels of
wheat to the acre might ra'se thirty, or
who now grows forty bushels of ccru might
produce eighty or one hundred, he has not
yet given such a lair trial to his present
opportunities as to entitle him to experi
ment with an increased acreage or to turn
his lands to new crops. The future far
mer of East Pennsylvania will first of all,
by all methods not exhaustive of the soil,
so till his lands as to get the largest avail
able yield ot the crops w nich he now culti
vates with profit.
HORSES that have bad good csre will
come out in the spring iu good trim for the
seasou's work. As the coat begins to
loosen, the skin is irritated ; an o mce of
equal paitsof sulphur and cream of tar
tar, given with the food for a few days,
will correct this. G.iod grooming w.th a
s* f. brush should not be negiected.
G ound feed, mixed ,w th cut l ay, uan
excellent f.axi in the spp'ng for woikiug
horses. Three quarts of equal parts of
corn and rye (or oats), mixed with a pailful
of moist cut hay. is enough for a meal.
An occasional feed of cut beets or potatoes
is u eful. With many expe ienced horse
men an occa-ional feed oi haifa pick ot
potatoes is regarded as a remedy for worm
in horses. However this may be, they
improve the general condition of the ani
mal in a most pes tive manner. The main
poiut is to keep the horses in good health
and strength, for upon them devolves a
great pait of the spring work. As foaling
time approaches, good mares should lie
turned loose in a box stall and receive 'he
most gentle treatment, as the temper and
disposition of ihe colt is thought to depend
much upon this.
SEEDING THE BARE SPOTS. —Occasionally
there is a bare spot iu the permanent pas
ture, or a half-acre patch in the clover
field has failed to catch, and how to reme
dy it is an important quesiior. To seed
wiih rye and grass reed, early in the fall,
is the best way to manage these spots.
If, as is often the case, it is poverty of soil
that causes them, sow a little bone meal,
or scatter some fine manure over them. It
will pay to spend ten dollars an acre, or
more if nL-ccssary, to redeem a barren spot
in a permanent pasture; for such places
are not only eye-sorep, but yield no profit,
and the interest on ten dollars is a small
amount. In seeding poor spots, always
use an extra amount of seed, as it is not as
likely to grow as on richer land.
WORK FOE A SLACK TlME.— When it
gets too dry to plow, as is often the case
in early fall, farmers are sometimes at a
loss as to what 'hey had better put the
hands and teams to doing. This is the
time to attend to little things which are
likely to be neglected. In the hillside
fields there are often washes starting, and
if in addition there are some loose stones,
here are two things 11 at ought to be put
together. Make a brush dam occasionally ;
put a little straw above it, aud then put
your stone on tte straw, and you have a
barrier that will catch the wash and stop
ODR best farmers are beginning to learn,
and in fact, most of them have already
learned, that the time spent in destroying
weeds m the autumn is well spent, and
that if they would save time in cultivating
hoed crops they must keep the weeds from
seeding as much as possible in all parts of
the farm; a little carelessness in this re
spect will soon cover a farm with wt-ed
seedp. A single root o? milk weed in a
mowing field, if left unmolested, will
spread over and take possession of a large
field in a few years.
THEBE are as many as 4 000 known
species of grasses distributed over the
world, and there is not a soil to which
tome of them are not indigenous. Some
grow best on dry, sterile soils, otters on
rich land, some thriving best in marshes,
and wet places, and some on the sea coast.
Those that are best suited for permanent
pasture thrive in luxuriance under cultiva
tion, and are somewhat limited in number
compared with the entire species.
Experiments with concentrated fertilizers
are olten spoiled just as crops arc injured
or lost through wrong application. Far
mers are apt to th'mk the manure must be
puttlose to the seed,else the plant will not
get the benefit of it. The real truth of the
matter is. that it is not the plant just ger
minated that needs the aid of the fertilizer,
but the plant which already has a start and
needs helping on to the finish.

A HOME MADE HAMMOCK. —A New
Bedford carpenter constructed a hammock
after an original idea. The only material
necessary is an ordinary Hour barrel and
some rope. The hoops are knocked off
and the staves separated. A ho'e is then
bored through the center of each end of
the stave, and the rope is simply reeved
in and out of these holes so that they are
fastened firmly at intervals of three or
four inches apart.
A BATTER.— Take two eggs, yolks and
whites, and beat them up light; stir them
into half a pint of milk, and just halt of
your pint of flour which you are going to
use; when this is smooth add to the other
half-piut of flour, one teaspoonful of salt,
and last, mind, one teaspoonful of sweet
oil; it will come with a little working nice

properly fried with sugar and lemon-juice,
but ou apples or peaches and bananas it is
To DRIVE AWAY FLIES. —Buy an ounce
of oil of lavender and pour half of it in
a piut bottle of cold water, and shake it
up; the mixture is a mechanical one only;
if dissolved in alcohol it is a perfect so
lution; but this only becomes more expen
sive: scatter your water and oil of laven
der over the table cloth aud the flies will
go away: three or four doses suffice to
drive away a pest of Hies lrom a country
boarding house table.
CUFAPSPONG'A CAKE. — Three eggs, two
tablespoonfuls of water and a teacupful of
sugar mixed together ; a teacupful and a
half of flour, two teaspoonfuls of baking
powder, aud a pinch of salt stirred quickly
in ; season with a teaspoonful of essence
of vanilla, or half a leinen, bake in a quick
oven. It can be baked in jelly-cake paus,
ami have pastry cooks' cream, lemon iee
ing, or chocolate between.
WORK. BASKET. Take two common
peach baskets, paint them black and tar
nish theui. Fasten them together by the
bottoms, and liue them with silk. The
top one can be turnished by having two
little pockets, a needle-book and pin
cushion. Ou each outside panel put a
bright embossed picture, and around the
top of each bt saet put a strip of gilt pa
per. They are truly pretty when finished.
PUREE OF STRING BEANS. —Take any

JAPANESE TIDIES. —Paste a Japanese
picture on a square of white glazed cam
bric, then a rcw of black velvet overlap
ping the edges; outside of this a row of
bright satin ribbon, and put on a row of
white lace to form a ruffle. A picture
pasted on a square of pink satin and edged
with white Breton lace is handsome.
LACE AND VELVET TlDlES. —'These are
ma.:e by BjWiug velvet ribbon aud inser

with a row of lace and insertion. Black
velvet and white lace look best, but some
like colors. Scarlet velvet and black lace
look very rich.
APPLE PRESERVES —Take some pleas
ant sour apples, pare them, take the coie
out at the bottom, and leave the stem in :
mate a syrup of white sugar and water to
half cover the apples; bake or boil them
till tb' / are just done through. Serve
them ip whole, with loaf sugar and cream.
FT I COLD MEAT: —Spiced plums are
delicious with coid meat. Cook the
plums in a little water until they are
soft, then, so far as possible, remove the
stones, swee'en and spice to your taste and
boil nntil thick, put m large-mouthed bot
tles and seal, or can in the usual way.
A NICK DlSH. —Lamb steak dipped in

A TOUGH HORSE STORY..
The Cincinnati Enquircr lately published
the following horse story, which we give
just as it appeared: ,4 A curious instance
of sagacity in tlie horse occurred recently
in thestablesof Mr. A. Tougli tuan, situated
on North Elm street. Mr. T. has for a long
time lteen in the habit of using ST. JACOBS
(MI., the Great German Kerne ly,in his ex
tensive stables. Among Mr. T.s many
horses isa great, powerful Canadian draught
horse. This animal in course of time got
so that that he knew the ST. JACOBS Gil.
bottle very well; so well, in fact,that one day
receutly on Mr. T.'s return from business,
upon entering the stables he caught him
licking the sore shoulder of u beast which

survey toliislicking work,turued Lis head
and caught up with his teeth from the box
used as its receptuble alsrttleol ST. JACOBS
Oil.. He threw the lrottle on the floor
with violence enough to break it, aud then
deliberately lieked up the ST. JACOBS OIL
and applied it to the cut. Readers, we have
seen the lawsof association belied by beings
with less sense than Toughman s horse.
The word has pstsscd among us, and when
we see a man who won't try the Oil, we
say,' He is worse than Toughman'a horse.'"
To many this may appear as a very 'tough "
story; and were there not proofs innumer
able of the ctVuacy of the Great German
Remedy they would he justified in so
designating it- The testimony, however, ie
plentiful and pointed, ami is from people
whose long experience in matters apjs*r
taining to horseflesh entitles their opinions
to profound consideration uud respect.
