To KEEP HONEY —Put the honey in a
ory, warm room. It the temperature is
even 100 ®F. it will be all the better. In
such a room the honey will not gather
moisture, or "sweat," as it is called, and
there will be no trouble from souring. Ex
tracted honey should always be kept in
open vessels covered with cotton clotn, so
t;>e moisture, in case it was not extracted
before it WHS thoroughly cured, would es
cape. If this ptecautiou is takeo, there is
little danger in extracting before the honey
is capped over, beginning just as the cap
ping is commenced. It extracted honey
is kept in a temperature of from 80 ® to
100®, it wiL 1 net granulate. Granulation,
however, does not iujure the lioney; iu
fact it is one of the bes* tests of its purity.
To re-liquety candied honey, we have only
to heat it. If we are caret ill not to raise
the temperature above 180®, it will lose
Lone of its excellence. To do this, esily,
place the crock or can containing the hon
ey in a vessel of water, placing something
on the bottom of the vessel so that the
crock may not touch the bottom aud be
come too much heated. If the water lu
the vessel is not permitted to boil, there is
little danger of the honey being injured.
Honey should be put up in clean attractive
packages, which will not leak.
A'HAT FORMS OF JNITKOGKN DO PLANTS
USE FOR FOOD? —Plants can take their ni
trogen as ammonia, as nitric acid, and as
organic nitrogen. They seem to prefer ni
trates and ammonia. The number of or
ganic nitrogen compounds which they are
able to digest, so to speak, is limited.
Practically the larger p&it of the nitroge
nous food of plauts seems to consist of the
nitric acid wheh their roots gather from
the soil. This nitric acid is aerived most
ly from the decay of vegetable and animal
remains in the soil, though part comes from
the atmosphere in the form of ammonia
and citric acid. Tbe inert nitrogen com
pounds, which, until changed, are useless
10 the plant, are gradually altered by the
process of nitriticatiou above referred to,
and finally reach the conditton of ammonia
and nitric at. id, the forms which plants
prefer. And not only is the vegetable mat
ter of the soil worked over for the use of
Dlauts, but acflfial refuse, dung, guano,
and the vaiious materials used as fertihz
ere, including even ammonia, are trans
formed by nature in that wonderful labo
ratory which we call the soil, aud made

OSAGE ORANGE FROM CUTTING?. —The
Osage orange grows readily from cuttings,
both of the blanches and tLe root, but ex
perienced hedgers only use plauts raised
from seeds. The la l >or of making the cut
tings is much greater, but the great objec
tion is tne lack of uuiformity of the plants
thus raised. In setting a hedge it is im
portant to use plants as nearly alike as
possible in size and vigor, else those that
have a slight advantage at first, in size and
strength, will keep it, crowding the weak
er, and preventing that uniformity so de
sirable In a complete hedge. For this rea
son the first step with hedge plauts, when
they are taken up in the tall, is tocarefuliy
assort them and tie In bundles, so that m

will IK ts much alike as possible. If a
dozen cuttings were raised from a shoot
they would be very much unlike; those
from the terminal bud, and a few other
buds nearest the top would be much more
vigorous than tnose from buds lower down
and tome of them would be of such slow

THE British government has some very
stringent rules regarding the manufacture
of gunpowder for the public service. The
charcoal is to be made of dog-wood and
must be of the utmost cleanliness, any
trace of the baik being considered an im
purity sufficient to condemn it. The wood
must also be cut in the spring, not that it
is not just as good at any other time, but
because when the sap is lisiug the bark is
easily removed aDd the wood is perfectly

the shaving ot the bark with a knife, and

WHAT WILL KILL CORBEL?—Sorrel has

BCGAR beetß, mangels or turnips boiled
are excellent food for breeding sows. It
is as necessary that a breeding sow should
be a good milker as it is in the care of a
cow. The value of a sow's progeny de

The feeding of such roots as mentioned
above, not only produces a good supply of
milk, but adds greatly to the healthy
condition of the sow.
IN sowing wheat be careful that no foul
seeds get into the ground through the drill
or by the hand of the sower. Have your

A BBOTB FOB THE SICK. —For one por
tion ot broth take half a pound ot freshly
killed meat, cut in t small pieces, add to it
1$ pounds of distilled water, to which has
been added four drops of pure cblorhy
dric (muriatic) acid, and half to one
drachm of common salt; mix them well
together. After standing an hour, the
whole is strained through a couical hair
sieve, such as is. ordinarily used in the
kitchen, allowiug it to pass through with
out pressing. The portion passing
through first being cloudy, it is again
passed through the sieve, and this process
repeated until it becomes perfectly clear.
Upon the residue of meat remaining lu
the se ivc, half a pound of distilled water
is poured, iu small portions. In this tnau
ner about oue pound of liquid (extract of
meat) is obtained, of a red color, and
pleasant meat broth taste. It is adiuiuis
tered to the sick, cold, by the cupful,
according to their inclination. It must
not be heated, as it becomes cloudy there
by, and a thickooagulum oi meat albumen
ami liematiu is deposited. A young lady
of 18 years, in my family, being ill with
typhus fever, first introduced this prepa
ration. It was called forth by the remark
of my family plijsician, (Dr. Pfeuser),
that, iu a certain slate of this disease, the
greatest difficulty mat with by physicians
lay in incomplete digestion, a consequence
of the condition of lue intestines, and be
sides, in the want of a nutriment proper
for digestion and for the formation of
blood. The common broths prepared by
boiling a*c deficient— in fact iu all these
constituents uecessary for the formation
of the albumen of the blood—aud the
yolks of eggs, often added thereto, cou
pons very little of this material, for it has
82J percent, water aud fat, and only IT4
per cent, of a substance very similar to, it
not the same as the albumeu of the egg;
aud whether this is equal in nuincious
qualities to the albumen of the meat is, ac
oording to the investigations of Magendie,
at least doubtful. The uew broth contains
besides meat albumeu, a certain quantity
of hematin, and, therein, a far greater
quantity of iron necessary for the for.ua
tiox of the blood corpuscles, aud fiually,
the digestive chlohydnc acid. A great
Hindrance to the employment of this broth
duringthe summer is its liability to change
in warm weather; it commences regularly
to ferment, like sugar water with yeast,
without the usual odor. (What substance
is here formed is well worthy investiga
tion.) Ou account of this the meat mu A
be extracted with perfectly cold water,
and in a cold place. Ice water, and re
frigeration witn ice, completely remove
mis difficulty. Most important of all is it
that the meat lie perfectly fresh, and not
several days old. This broth is uow in
use in the nospital and in the private prac
tice of several of the most eustiuguished
physicians or Munich. 1 should, perhaps

A young married lady, who, ia cou e
queuce of an ovarian inflammation, could
take no solid food, lived for two months
entirely upon this broth, at the end of
which period her health was eutirely re

flesh and strength. Generally patients
take this food without opposition only so
long as they are ill; as soon as they can

OSE CAUSE OF UXJUC IK HORSES. —Colic
in horses is often brought on by feeding
hay patsed through the corn-stalk cutter,
mixed with meal, middlings, or bran, and
then wet up. Ihe hoise eats this food,
thus prepaied, so rapidly, that it is not
properly masticated, and consequently be
comes so clogged up in the stomach as to
cause indigestion, followed by colic; more
especially if directly after eating he is al
lowed to drinE heartily of water; and the
colder this is, so much the more liable to
bring on colic, Tho best way, when a
horse is brought into the stable, is to lei
him stand a short time, particularly if
sweaiing, then give him three or four
quaris of water, not over cold; then some
uncut hay; after this a feed of grain or
meal; and half an hour after that is eaten,
all the water he pleases to drink. Some
horses will eat cut hay wit-i impunity,
others cannot, or at least not until they
have eaten some uncut.

he proceeded to feed the horse. What on
earth the hen was for we couldn't imagine,
until, just Iwfore leaving he tied one end
