r fam, mul givwd.ol4, :-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 were humbugs. "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, that ha cannot see how his neighbors are flourishing, and getting ahead of him, by taking papers. Such a person as I have described is found in every neighborhood, and you will always see, that were there is no paper there is no farm.—Journal of the Form. 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. Thisshort-sighted treatment,however,works its one cure, or punishment rather, for swine thus treated make poor pork, end often die before killing time. Others who are particular about feeding their pigs for get to siippiv fl i s i v th mat,--..,..44,,-4,- 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 them, then when sent to market later in the season. A NEW USE FOR CRANBERRIES.-A correspondent of the California Former makes the following excellent sugges 7 tion:—"ldo not see how any one who has ever noticed the delicate foliage and flower of the cranberry, even when wild and uncultivated, could fail to he struck with its beauty, But my object now is to Call the attention of your readers to its value when cultivated in pots, in the house, of still bettei;" in hanging baskets. When thus grown, the long slender stems, drooping from the basket together with rich fruit, form most beautiful object. Let those who mourn that they cannot afford to purchase 11)reign novelties to make a rustic basket, put a few cranberries in it, and hang it in the window, and they. will say they never saw anything more beautiful." 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 one. 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. all (11.1, School Books. 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, New York. 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 ject..

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 on ;'single sheet, writing only a few min utes or all day. The important point is that the body shall not be distorted, and that the movement shall be easy and con sistent with rapidity. The forearm should rest upon.the muscle near the elbow, the wrist should not touch the desk, and the baud should not be allowed to turn upon the side. To prevent the movement across the pagefrom being made by bend ing the wrist, and also to avoid the ten dency to roll the hand upon the side, have the pupil close the third and fourth fin gures entirely, not allowing them to touch the paper at all. By practcie he will learn to move the hand properly and stead ily, es a child having sufficient strength will sooner learn to walk if not allowed to creep.

The Kidneys are two in number, situated at the upper part of the lion, surrounded by fat, and con sisting of three parts, viz: the Anterior, the In terior, and the Exterior. The anterior absorbs. Interior consists of tis sues or veins, which serve as a deposit for the urine and convey it to the exterior. The exterior is a conductor also, terminating in a ,ingle tithe. and called the Ureter. The ureters are connected with the bladder. The bladder is composed of various coverings or tissues, divided into parts. viz: the Upper, the Lower, the Nervous and the Mucous.- The upper expels, the lower retains. Many have a desiae to urinate without the ability; others urinate without the ability to retain. This frequently occurs in children.

T. 11EtuaoLn, Druggist: Dear Sir:—l Lace been a sufferer, for upward of twenty year:, with gravel bladder and kidney affections ' during which time I have used various medicinal preparations, and have been under the treatment of the most eminent Physicians, experi encinglittle relief. 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:. 11.

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. . . _ - .4111;71t5g always relieved and often wholly cured by 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 maintained. Ayer's Ague Cure, For Fever and Ague Intermittent Fever. Chill Fever, Remittent Fever, Dumb Ague, Periodical or Bilious Fever, &c., end indeed all the affections which arise from malarious, marsh, or miasmata poisons. 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.

Ayer's Sarsaparilla, rG THE BLOOD. lOU 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.
