FOR THE FARM AND HOME.
The Hojjf ( nif for Pawlnit lloriri.
The habit of pawing can be overcome
in most cases by lifting the foot and
holding it up for a while each time the
horse begins to paw. To give the
horse his first lesson, put on an old har
ness, buckle a strap around each of the
forward fetlocks, attach a small rope
five or six feet long to each strap, pass
the ropes through rings or loops on the
top of the saddle, take the horse to a
soft, smooth spot so that he will not be
liable to get hurt, girt the saddle tight
so that it will not turn, take up one
forward foot and hold it up tor some
ten or fifteen minutes by making the
rope fast at the ring on the saddle.
The object of this lesson is to teach the
horse that standing on three legs is
tiresome and disagreeable work; and
also to teach him that his foot is held
by a superior power, and that he can
not put it down without the consent
of that power. For him to get these
ideas he needs to-stand long enough to
get very tired of it, and needs to do his
best to get his foot free before he can
realize that it is impossible for him to
free it. Having given this lesson, put
the horse the place where he is in
the habit of doing the most pawing,
and when he lifts either foot, take that
foot up by pulling on the rope attached
to it, and hold it for a short time only.
The object of this lesson is to teach the
horse that it is*when and only when
he lifts his foot to paw that the con
trol of it is taken from him. When he
learns this he will probably stop the
practice, but for him to get this idea
the foot must be taken, and held long
enough for him to realize that it is
held every time he attempts to paw.
In this, as in all teaching and all disci
plinary work, the teacher and governor
needs a good supply of patience and
perseverance.— A nstl IF. rut nam.
I)o we approve of scraping trees?
isks a friend of ours. Certainly we
10, provided they need it, and one can
rarely find an old tree that does not.
x\side from the fact that the removal
Df the old bark scales breaks up a ref
uge for various insects, including the
woolly-aphis, the increased beauty oi
Ihe tree repays the trouble. There are
scrapers ma le for the purpose; one of
these has a triangular blade, another a
long blade with one flat and another
slightly concave edge. An old hoe is
as good a tool as any; cut off the
handle to about eighteen inches, and
.lo not grind the blade too sharp, as a
tutting implement is not needed—only
a scraper. On a very old trunk some
force may be needed to detach the
scales that are partly loose, but on a
foung tree be careful not to wound the
healthy bark. The scraping may be
ilone now, next month or later. When
(here conies a moist, drizzly spell, go
Dver the scraped bark with good soft
soap, made thin enough with water to
apply with a brush. Paint over a thin
:oat of this soap and leave the rest to
the rains. Later in the season the
trees will appear as if furnished with
mahogany trunks.— American Agricul

A writer in the Cincinnati Gazette
says: There is scarcely a farmer who
does not plant a larger acreage than
he can profitably attend to, and the re
sult is that three acres hardly crop out
BO much as one acre ought to; and we
hear of twenty, thirty or forty bushels
of corn to the acre where it ought to
be sixty to one hundred bushels, and if
the time spent on twenty acres of corn
were spent on ten, and the manure
dribbled on the twenty were judicious
ly used on the ten, there would be ten
acres to put in grass, set to enriching
itself and at the same time making
splendid pasturage for a half score of
yearlings, besides realizing full as
much corn as in the old style way
and, instead of plowing the corn only
two or three times, we had better
plow it six times. Now I know
whereof I speak. During a drouth,
several years ago, a certain farmer bade
his boys plow the corn seven times
that summer, and while the neighbors'
cribs were very lean that year his crop
was the largest ever gathered on that

they are tender- no longer; then drain
them, season them palatably with salt

To Test the Health of a Horse or Cow*
In horses the pulse at rest beats forty
times, in an ox from fifty to liftv-live,
and in sheep and pigs about seventy to
eighty beats per minute. It may be
felt wherever a largo artery crosses a
bone, for instance. It is generally ex
amined in the horse 011 the cord which
crosses over the hone of the lower jaw
in front of its curved position, or in
the bony ridge above the eye; and in
cattle over the middle of the first rib,
and in sheep by placing the hand on
the left side, where the beating of the
heart may be felt. Any material va
riation of the pulse from the figures
given above may be considered a sign
of disease. If rapid, hard and full, i
is an indication of high fever or in
llammation; if rapid, small and weak,
low fever, loss of blood or weakness
If slow, the possibilities point to brain
disease, and if irregular, to heart
troubles. This is one of the principal
and sure tests of the health ot an ani
Drunken Russian Peasants.
Moujks are curious when drunk.
They hardly ever quarrel, but become
affectionate and embrace each other.
Their idea of drinking is to imbibo
until they are quite insensible.
When 1 was in Russia 1 had a coach
man, who once a month used to come
and ask nie for leave to get drunk dur
ing two consecutive days. I'pen in- 1
quirv 1 found that only on these con
ditions would a coachman remain so
ber during the rest of the month.
Having obtained leave, he would g<> to
a drinking-house, show the proprietor
his money and state how long he might
remain there. Then lie would sit down
at a table with some spirits before
him. Gradually and solemnly ho would
get drunk, place his arms before him
on the table and recline on them.
Thus he would remain for two days
and nights, the proprietor supplying
him with more liquor whenever lie
looked up. 11 is time up, the proprie
tor would drag him outside the house
and set him up in the snow against the
wall, having first filled his cap with
snow. Every charitably disposed
brother coachman passing by would
box his ears. In about half an hour
this discipline would sober hiui; he
would get up, shake himself together
and resume his duties.— London Truth
In a communication to the London
Lancet, Dr. "Woodland states that,
having had his attention directed to
a number bf cases involving great irri
tation to the feet and legs, causing
small pustules to arise and the skin to
subsequently exfoliate, and suspicion
being fastened upon red stockings
which the patients wore, he carefully
analyzed a number of the hose, to as
certain the precise nature of the difli
culty. He found a tin salt which is
used as a mordant in fixing the dye.
He succeeded in obtaining as much as
twenty-two anil three-tenths grains of
this metal in the form of the dioxide;
and, as each time the articles are
washed the salt in question is of course
rendered more easily soluble, the result
is that the acid excretions from the
feet attack the tin oxide, and an irri
tating fluid is formed.

Sin —My motiveH lor the publication of the
inoHt unusual statements which follow nro,
liißt, gratitude for the fact that 1 have boon
paved from a moat horrible den h, i n t, sec
ondly, a desiro to warn all who read thi
pta'ement against some of the moat decep
tive influence* by which they have ever been
surrounded. It in a fact that to day thous
ands of people are within a foot of the grave
and they do not know it. To to I how 1 wan
caught away from just this position, and to
warn others against Hearing it, are my ob
jects in this co ninuiiication.
On the lirst day of June, 1881, I lay at my
residence in this t ity surrounded by my
friends and waiting for death. He riven only
known the agony I then endured, for wonts
can never describe it. And jet, if a few
yea s previous, any on i had told me that I
wa> to lie brought so low, and by so terrible
a disease, 1 should havo seolfed at the idea.
1 had alwuys been uncommonly strong and
healthy, bad weigl o 1 over lit 0 pounds and
hardly knew, in my own exj erionee, want
pain or sickness were. Very many people
wlki will read this stub ment leali/.e at times
that they uro unusually tired and cannot
account for it. '1 h•> feel dull and indefinite
pains in various par.s of the body, aiul do
not understand it. Or they are exceedingly
liuugry one day and entirely without appetite
the next. This was just the way t felt when
tli'o relentless malady which had fastened
itself upon me first began. Mill 1 thought
it was nothing; that probably I had taken a
cold which would soon pass away. Shortly
after tins 1 noticed a heavy, and at times a
i earalgic, pain in my head, but in it would
come one day and be gone the next, I paid
but Utile attention to it. However, my
stomach was out of order and my food often
failed to digest, causing at times great iu
conveuieiice. Yet 1 had n idea, even as a
physician, that these things meant anything
serious, or that a monstrous di-ease was be
coming fixed upon me. Candidly, 1 thought
1 was Sullenng from malaria and so dot t >red
myself accordingly, lfiit 1 get no better. 1
next noticed a peculiar color and od<<r about
the fluids 1 was passing—also that there were
large quantities one day and very little the
next, and that a persis.eut froth and seurti
appear* d upon tlu surface, and a sediment
settled in the bottom. And yet I did not
realize my danger, lor. indesd, seeing these
symptoms continually, 1 finally bee .una ac
customed to them, and my suspicion was
wholly disarmed by the fact that 1 had no
pain in the till'ected organs or in their vicin
ity. Why I should have been bo blind I
There is a terrible future for all physical
neglect, and impending danger always brings
a person to his senses, eveu though it may
then be too late. 1 lealized at last my criti
cal condition and aroused myself to overcome
it. And, oh! how hard 1 tried. 1 consulted
the best medical skill in the land. 1 \isited
all the prominent mineral springs in America,
and traveled from Maine to California. Still
1 grew worse. Iso two physictat s agreed as
to my malady. One said 1 was troubled with
spinal irritation; another, nervous prostra
tion; another, malaria; another, dyspepsia;
another, heart disease; another, general de
bility; another, congestion of the base of the
biaiu; and so on through a long list of com
mon diseases, the symptoms of all of which
1 really had. In this way several years pas. Ed,
ilurm all of which time 1w as steadily grow
ing worse. My conditiou hail really become
pitiable. The slight symptoms I at first
e*i>erieucod wi re developed into terrible and
constant disorders—the little twigs of pain
had grown to oaks of agony. My weight had
boin .educed from to KX) pounds. My
life was a torture to myself and friends. 1
could retain no food upon my stomach, and
lnoi wholly by injections. I was a living
mass of pain. My pulse was uncontrollable.
In my agony I frequently fell upon the iloor.
convulsively clutched the carpet, and prayed
for death. Morphine had little or no effect
in deadening the pain. For six and
nights I had the death premonitory hiccoughs
constantly. My urine was filled with tube
casts and albumen. I was struggling with
Uright's Di-ease of the kidneys in its last
While suffering thus I received a call from
my pastor, the iiev. lir. Foote, rector of St.
I'aul's church, of this city. I felt that it was
our 1 tst interview, hut in the course of con
versation he mentioned a remedy of which I
had heard much, but had never used. Dr.
Foote de'ailed tome the many remarkable
cures which had couio under his observation,
by means of this remedy, and nrged me to
try it. As a practicing physician and a grad
uate of the schools, I cherished the prejudice
both natural and common wit i all regular
practitioners, and derided the idea of any
medicine outside the regular channels being
the least beneficial. So solicitious, however,
was Dr. Foote that I finally promised 1 woulu
waive my prejudice and try the remedy he so
highly ri commended. 1 beg in its use on the
first day of June, aud took it according to
directions. At first it sickened me; but this
I thought was a gocd sign for me in my de
bilitated condition. I continued to take it;
the sickening sensation departed and 1 was
able to retain f< o 1 up >n my stomach. In a
few days I noticed a decided change for the
better, nn also did my wife nnd friends. My
hi •coughs ceased and I experienced less pain
than formerly. 1 was so rejoiced at this im
proved condition that upon what I had be
lieved but a few days before was my dying
1 e.l, I vowed, in the presence of my family
nnd friends, should I recover I would both
publicly and privately make known this
remedy for the good of humanity, wherever
an J whenever 1 hnd an opportunity. I also
determined that I would give a course of
lectures in the Corinthian Academy of Music,
in this city, stating in full the symptoms and
almost hopelessness of my disease nnd the
remarkable means by which I have been
saved. My improvement was constant from
that time, and in less than three months I
had gained twenty-six pounds in flesh, be
came entirely free from pain, and 1 believe I
owe my life nnd present condition wholly to
Warner's Safe Cure, the remedy which I used.
Since my recovery 1 have thoroughly reinves
tigated the subject of kidney difficulties and
Bright's disease, nnd the truths developed are
astounding. 1 therefore state deliberately,
nnd as a physician, that I believe more than
one-half the deaths which occur in America
are caused by Bright's disease of the kidneys.
This may sound like a rash statement, but I
am prepared to fully verify it. Bright's dis
ease has no distinc ire symptoms of its own
(indeed, it often develops without any pain
whatever in the kidneys or their vicinity),
but has the symptoms of nearly every other
known complaint. Hundreds of people die
daily, whose burials are authorized by a
physician's certificate of "Heart Disease,"
"Apoplexy," "Paralysis," "Spinal Com
plaint," "Rheumatism," "Pneumonia,"
and other common diseases, when in reality
it was Bright's disease of the kidneys. Pew
physicians, and fewer people, realize the ex
tent of this disease or its dangerous and in
sidious nature. It steals into the system like
a thief, manifests its presence by the com
monest symptoms, and fastens itself upon
the constitution before the victim is aware.
It is nearly as hereditary as consumption,
quite tis common and fully as fatal. Entire
families, inheriting it fnm their ancestors,
havo died, and yet none of the number know
or realized the mysterious power whioh was
removing them. Instead of common symp
toms it often shows none whatever, but
brings death suddenly, and as such is usually
supposed to bo heart disease. As one who
has suffered, and knows by bitter experience
what he says, I implore every one who reads
these words not to neglect the slightest
symptom of kidney difficulty. Certain agony
and possible death will be the sure result of
such neglect, and no one can afford to hazard
I mil aware that such an unqualified state
ment H8 this, coming from me, known as I
am throughout the entire land as a practi
tioner and lecturer, will arouse the surprise
and possible animosity of the medical pro
fession, and astonish all with whom I am
acquainted, but I make the foregoing state
ments, based upon facts which lam prepared
to produce, and truths which 1 can substan
tiate to the letter. The welfare of those who
n;ay possibly be sufferers such as I was, is an
ample inducement for me to take the step I
have, and if I can successfully warn others
from the dangerous path in which I once
walked, I am willing to endure all profes
sional and personal consequences.

" Having occasion recently to use a remedy
for kidney disease, I applied to my druggist,
Mr. D. B. Williams, of Lincoln Square, this
city, and requested him to furnish me the
| best kidney medicine that he knew of, and he
handed ine a bottle of Hunt's Remedy, stat
ing that it was considered the best because
he had sold many bottles of it to his cus
tomers in Worcester, and they all speak of it
in the highest terms, and pronounce it always
reliable. I took the bottle home and com
menced taking it, and find that it does the
work effectually; and I am ple:ised to recom
mend to all who have kidney or liver disease
the use of Hunt's Remedy, the sure care."
