:-To Paper, No Farm.
a may appearstrange to the intelligent
farmer that there are, persons who still
work on in the old track that their fath
ers did fifty years :,o; persons who do
not go along with the times, hut are rather
going back, not improving in the least;
their homes destitute of papers, and know
ing nothing of the world, cave from the
talk of their neighbors.
But it is too true. A good farmer can
easily tell when one of these person's
thrills meets his eye. .Tl, - applc, , trees are
covered with moss and the tops are thickly
interlaced with dead and dying limbs. His
barns and houses arc of the same brown
wood color, and rapidly hastening to de
cay, while the corners of the rotten fences
are filled with briars and docks ; presenting
an unsightly appearance. And yet his
iiirm is in perfect keepin with himself.
His dirty clothes and slouchy appearance
present no contrast to his broken down
gates and gaunt cattle.
I have one Of these old fogies for my
neighbor, and speakisg'to him the other
day about taking agricultural papers, he
plainly expressed his opinion that they
"There was Josh. Wilisic," said he
"that took the papers, and hearin' about
mowin' machines, sent for one, then all the
farmers 'round here got them 'cept me. I
kept 'out of it. And Josh. Wiltsio had
five tons of hay spoilt., banns° he mowed
it down so early in the moruin' and had
rain on it; bat I don't get down so much
snowing by hand bat what I can get it up
fore it rains." •
Neighbor Foley spoke, true, ;Jut I
might have pointed to his grass standing
in the fields until the nourishment was
burnt out by the scorching sun. And his
cattle, when the winter is over, showplain
ly by their poor condition, the hay on
which they fed.
I might have reminded him of his grain,
spoiling in the fields because he did not
have a good reaper at work while the
weather was good, but cradled it by hand,
and the weather becoming stormy before
he could finish it, it was left in the fields
to rot. But I forebore from telling him
this, Ibr such farmers are"quick to anger,'=
and peace is desirable in a neighborhood.
The farms which adjoin Foley's are con
stantly overrun by his pigs and his cattle,
which scorn to stay in the flimsy structures
he calls iences. Still Mr. Foley is a good
neighbor, always willing to help others in
distress, and accommodating at all times,
either through stupidity or willfulness,

Hearth and flame recommends salt for
swine. It says swine are such greedy
feeders that not a few farmers pay very
little attention to their feeding. The swill
barrel is often very little better than a sink,
and the poor hogs are expected to eat any
thing and everything which is refused by
the other animals, human and brute alike.

otker animals. They require to he salted
however, just as much as cattle, horses, or
sheep, and sufferag much when neglected
as any of these animals. If the food be not
regularly salted,. there should be a troughs
box in every sty in which salt may be de
posited regularly for the;use,of the animals .
Salting the food judiciously would be much
the best way.
ONloNs.—Many complain that onions
do not keep. The trouble is in keeping
them too warm. The onion, is a bulb, a
plant at rest, and the leest warmth starts,
it into activity. It is much better that
onions remain frozen through the winter,
provided they can thaw gradually, than to
out them in a cellar or other warm place.
where their vegetative powers will be
aroused. If put in large heaps, onions
will he sure to spoil; but if spread in thin
layers and covered with hay or straw, so
that if frozen the thawing may be gradual,
they will keep well through the winter.
It is the custom with onion growers to
take their crop to market as soon as pos
sible. If they were to provide proper
storage, they wouldrealize much more fi,r

To CURE CROUP.—Somebody says:
"Mothers will be interested to know that
turpentin: is a sovereign remedy for
croup. Saturate a piece of flannel with
it, and place the flannel on the throat
and chest. In very severe cases, from
three to five drops on a lamp of sugar may
be taken inwardly." This somebody
ought to make himself known, and show
that the "sovereign remedy" is actually
DON'T WASTE BONES.—Every family
should provide a barrel or box for receiv
ing chicken bones, and bits of beef bones
which accumulate in the kitchen. A
hundred pounds may be saved in a few
weeks. Such bones are morevaluable for
grass land, and for burying around all
kinds of fruit trees and grape-vines, than
Pruvian guano, which is worth from
three to five cents per pound.
When you compare the present attract
tire end interesting school books to those
of thirty years ago, we almost wish our
selves young again, that we might enjoy
the childish pleasure of their possession
and study. If the children of to-aay, ado
not receive a better education than their
parents did, it will not be for the lack of
school advantages, but, rather in spite of
them: TI our school-room furniture could
only be in keeping with the improvement
in books and teachers, our school work
might be far more efficient.
We propose to say something occasion- •
ally, in this column, concerning school
books, worthy of special notice.
For the present, we invite the attention
of all concerned to the following book en
titled "Hutchison's Physiology and Hy
giene," published by Clerk & Maynard,
Without speaking, disparagingly of sim
ilar works on the same subject, we do not
hesitate in pronouncing this the hest, and
most suitable text-hook, we have yet seen.
Every teacher should possess a copy, and
in every school, a class of the older pupils
should be formed in this interesting and
profitable, but too often neglected, study.
Of "Physiology and Hygiene" as a study,
we will speak again.
Anderson's "arammar School History
of the United States," by the same pub
lishers, is also worthy of special notice. It
has, we think, about all of the character
istics of a &strati: text-book in United
States History. It combines Geography
with Chronology, in a very pleasing way ;
and is interspersed with suitable maps,
neatly colored. Teachers who are tired of ' 1
the cumbersome and expensive histories
now in use, should send for a copy, that
they may know more of its merits.
Sentence making or composition, to the
pupil in grammar, is as important as the
working of problems, to the pupil in arith
metic. If we should value most highly, ,
those things that arc of the most use to
us, then most assuredly the study of lan
gunge, and especially our own mother
tongue, should have more attention given
to it, than it is accustomed to receive. We
are of time opinion that children can as
'readily and as effectually learn arithmetic
without instruction as they eau write
a letter or an article on a familiar
topic, without a practical knowledge
of grammar and the rules of composi
tion. Instruction in grammar is not gen
erally sufficiently practical. Teachers may
find this defect supplied by au excellent
little work on "composition &c," by Dr.
Hart, Principal of the New Jersey State
Normal, Eldridge & Bro., Philadelphia,
publishers. It should find a place in every
school room. Children, as soon as they
learn to read and write simple sentences,
should be taught to compose them. Teach
ers can give their pupils a nomore proffit
able exercise. Will some of our teachers
give us their ideas on this important sub

Position in Writing.
Whether the pupil faces the desk or has
either side to it is a question of not so
great moment. The position will depend,
to some extent, upon whether he is stand
ing or sitting, writing in a large book or

that the body shall not be distorted, and
that the movement shall be easy and con

rest upon.the muscle near the elbow, the
wrist should not touch the desk, and the
baud should not be allowed to turn upon

Dear Sir:—l Lace been a sufferer, for upward
of twenty year:, with gravel bladder and kidney
during which time I have used various
medicinal preparations, and have been under the
treatment of the most eminent Physicians, experi
Haiing seen your preparations extensively ad
vertised, I consulted with my family physician in
regard to using your Extract Dacha. •
I did this because I had used all kinds of ad
vertised remedies, and bad found them worthless,
and, some quite injurious; in fact, I despaired of
ever getting well. and determined to use no reme
dies hereafter unless I knew of the ingredients. It
was this that prompted me to use your remedy.
As you advertised that it was composed of bacilli..
cubebs and juniper berries, it occurred to me and
my physician at an excellent combination, an
with his advice after an examination of the ari ic:e
and consulting again with the druggist, I conclud
ed to try it. I commenced its one about eight
months ago, at which time I was confined to toy
room. From the first bottle I was astonished and
gratified at the beneficial effeet, and after using it
three weeks, was able to walk out. I felt much
like writing you a full statement of my enAe at
that time, but thought my improvement might
only be a temporary, and therefore concluded to
defer and are if it would effect a perfect cure,
knowing then it would be of greater valne to yon,
- and more satisfactory to me.
I am now able to report that a cure is effected
after using the remedy for fiive months.
I have not used any now for three months, soil
fell as well in all respects, as I ever did.
Your Buchu being devoid of any unpleasant
taste and oder—a nine tonic and invigorator of the
system. Ido not mean to be without it whenever
occasion may require its use in cacti affections:.

Ayer's Cherry Pectoral,
For Diseases of the Throat and Lunge,
such as Coughs, Colds, Whooping
Cough, Bronchitis, Asthma,
Probably never before in the whole history of
medicine, has anything won so widely and so deeply
upon the confidence of mankind, as this excellent
remedy for pulmonary complaints. Through a long
series of years, and among most of the races of
men it has risen higher and higher in their estima-
tion, as it has become better known. Its uniform
character and power to core the various affections
of the lungs and throat, have made it known as a re
liable protector against them. While adapted to
milder forms of disease and to young children, it is
at the same time the most effectual remedy that can
be given for incipient consumption, and the dan.
pprous affections of the throat and langs. As a pro
vision against sudden attacks of Croup, it should
be kept on hand in every family, and indeed as all
are sometimes subject to colds and coughs, all
should be provided with this antidote for them.
Although settled Consumption i 3 thought in
curable, still great numbers of cases where the dis
ease seemed settled, have been completely cured,
and the patient restored to sound health by the
Cherry Pectoral. So complete is its mastery
over the disorders of the Lungs and Throat, that
the most obstinate of them yield to it. When noth
ing else could reach them, under the Cherry Pec
toral they subside and disappear.
Singers and Public Speakers find great pro
tection from it.

Bronchitis is generally _cured by taking the
Cherry Pectoral in small r_nd frequent doses.
So generally are its virtues known that we need
not publish the certificates of them here, or do more
than assure the public that its qualities are fully

from malarious, marsh, or miasmata
As its name implies, it does Cure, and does not
fail. Containing neither Arsenic, Quinine, Bismuth,
Zinc, nor any other mineral or poisonous substance
whatever, it in nowise injures any patient. The
number and importance of its cures in the ague dis
tricts, are literally beyond account, and we believe
without a parallel in the history of Agne medicine.
Our pride is gratified by the acknowledgments we
receive of the radical cures effected in obstinate
eases, and where other remedies had wholly failed.
tinacclimated persons, either resident in, or
travelling through miasmatic localities, will be pro
tected by taking the AGUE CURE daily.
For Liver Complaints, arising from torpidity
of the Liver, it is an excellent remedy, stimulating
the Liver into healthy activity.
For Bilious Disonlers and Liver Complaints, it is
an excellent remedy, producing. many truly re
markable cures, where other medicines had failed.

rG THE BLOOD.
The reputatien this ex
'tatcellent medicine enjoys,
is derived from its cures,
- many of which are truly
_- marvellous. Inveterate
cases of Scrofulous dis
• ; case, where the sy stem
I ' , seemed saturated with
_ corruption, have been
purified and cured by
- Scrofulous affections and
• disorders, which were ag
gr,avated b y . the scrofu
• I us contamination until
they were painfully afflicting, hare been radically
cured in such great numbers in almost every sec
tion of the country, that the public scarcely need to
be informed of its virtues or uses.
Scrofulous poison is one of the most destructive
enemies of our race. Often, this unseen and unfelt
tenant of the organism undermines the constitution,
and invites the attack of enfeeblingor fatal diseases,
without exciting a suspicion of its presence. Again,
it seems to breed infection throughout the body, and
then, on some favorable occasion, rapidly develop
into one or other of its hideous forms, either on the
surface or amon- the vitals. In the latter, tuber
cles may be suddenly deposited in the lungs or
heart, or tumors formed in the firer, or it shows
its presence by eruptions on the skin, or font ulcer
ations on some part of the body. Hence the occa
sional me of a bottle of this Sarsaparilla Is ad
visable, even when no active symptoms of disease
appear. Persons afflicted with the following com
plaints generally find immediate relief, and at
length, cure, by the use of this SARSAPARIL
LA: St. Anthony's Fire. Rose or Erysipelas,
Teeter, Salt Rheum, Scald Head, Ringworm,
Sore Eyes, Sore Ears, and other eruptions or
visible forms of Scrofulous disease. Also in the
more concealed forms, as Dyspepsia, Dropsy,
Heart Disease. Fits, Epilepsy, Neuralgia,
' , and the various t7cerous affections of the muscu
lar and nervous systems.
Syphilis or Venereal and Mercurial Diseases
are cured by it, though a longtime is required for
subduing these obstinate maladies by any medicine.
But long continued use of this medicine will cure
the complaint. Lewin-retro or Whites, Uterine
Ulcerations, and Female Diseases, are com
monly soon relieved and ultimately cured by its
purling and invigorating effect. ..3linute Direc
tions for each case are found in our Almanac, sup
plied gratis. Rheumatism anti Gout, when
caused by accumulations of extraneous matters
in the blood, yield quickly to it, as also liver
Comptaints, Torpidity, Congestion or Inflam
mation of the Li rer, and Jaundice, when arising,
as they often do, from the ranklingpoisons lathe
blood. This SARSAPARILLA Is a great re
storer for the strength and vigor of the system.
Those who are Languid and Listless, Despon
dent, Sle epless, and troubled with Nervous Ap
prehensions or Fears, or any of the affections
symptomatic of Weakness, will find immediate
relief and convincing evidence of ha restorative
power upon trial.
