Points of a Good Cow.
The following will be heartily endorsed
by every good judge of cows, both for its
fidelity to the subject and the high poetical
order which characterizes it :
She is broad in her face,
And fine in her horn ;
She will quickly get fat
Without cake or corn ;
She is fine in her jaw,
And full in her dine :
She is broad in her rib,
And long in the rump ;
She is thin in her neck
And slim iu her tail,
Wide at the breast,
And good at the pail ;
She is gentle and kind,
And not gaunt and thin,
She's a grazier without,
And a butcher within.
The Farmer's Security.
The high prizes of life are not offered to
the farmer--not one in a thousand acquires
a princely fortune by the cultivation of the
soil. This is so well understood by the
shrewd men, who "will will be rich," that
almost every man of them avoids farming,
as by instinct. But there is another side
to this subject, which is full of interest and
Almost every farmer who has average
health and industry, acquires a competence
and an independence. Four out of five
families will farnisn proof of the assertion,
that men, beginning with nothing but vig
orous industry, and an unsullied name,
have within the last twenty years risen to
the possession of comfort and abundance.
The exceptions to this remark are few, and
can be readily accounted for on the most
obvious principles. Now set down against
this the fact, which the last fifty years has
developed, namely, that nine out of ten of
all who engage in trade fail in business,
and farmers have abundant reason to feli
citate themselves on their position and its
Where the farmer exercises care and
prudence, and does not go out of his busi
ness to make money, he is quite beyond
the reach of bankruptcy.
We have taken some pains to learn the
actual condition of the farmer interest in
the region of our circulation, and it is our
belief that nearly every serious case of ern_
barrassment has risen from one, or both, of
the two following causes : Farmers have
purchased faster than necessity required,
or prudence permitted ; or they have gone
beyond their business to engage in specula
tion, more or less remote from their work
as farmers; when they have become com
mercial men, they have incurred the risks
of commerce, and these risks should not be
set down to the account of agriculture ; for
where farmers have kept aloof from these,
they have avoided those entanglements
which have been the "lion's net" to so
We invite the attention of our young
men to these facts. They are worthy of the
most thoughtful reflection. Other prof
sions are always crowded to overflowing;
very few succeed in them. The present
commercial derangement is scattering the
fictitious fabrics built on hollow credit,
while the farming interest passes compara
Housework for Girls,
It is the law of God that no human be
ing can have a sound, vigorous body, ac•
complish much physically, and enjoy long
life, without good muscles. Though there
is a variety of ways by which exercise may
be obtained, your domestic labor is best
adapted to develop and strengthen the
whole system. Within a few years much
interest has been awakened upon the sub
ject of physical exercise, particularly as
connected with schools and seminaries of
learning. Besides the out-door exercises
and games, calisthenics and gymnastics
have been introduced inside the school
room, and are becoming a part of the reg
ular exercises in many institutions. This
is an improvement in the right direction—
and is good as far as it goes—but is en
tirely inadequate to meet fully the de
mands of nature.
No kind of exercise for girls is so well
calculated as household work to develop
all the muscles of the body—to do it in
early life and gradually under circumstances
favorable to health generally. The girl
and young woman must thus be trained
year after year, otherwise she will never
obtain that hardihood of constitution,
that strength of muscle, that power of en
durance ; or in other words that balance
of temperament so essential to good health
and happiness in all the social and domes
tic relations of life.—Dr. Allyne.
Everyone has seen butter,and most per
sons are fond of it ; but it is doubtful
whether many persons know how butter is
made. If you ask your mother, she per
haps would tell you that it is made by
churning milk. If your curiosity would
lead you to ask her why the milk is churn
ed, she might not be able to tell you.
Butter is made from milk, which every_
body knows is white. The reason milk is
white is because it is composed mainly of
water and oil. These are mixed together
and from what is called an emulsion. If
you will put some water and oil in a vial
and shake it, the water and oil will look
white, just like milk. Milk is nearly all
water. The oil that it contains is covered
up in little sacks of a substance called
casein. These being lighter than water,
Churning breaks these sacks and permits
the oil or butter as it is called to float on
the top of the milk. Shaking milk turns
it sour, because the sugar which is in it
unites with the oxygen of the air and
turns it to lactie acid.
VirA fanner who runs his farm with
out a record of expenses and the cost of
different crops, is like a ship without a
compass or a log book.
serA good farmer will never be satisfied
with his fanning, until he is confident that
his land grows better every year.
MR EDITOR :—"How shall we improve
the condition of our public schools?" is a
question of more than ordinary significance
to every one who desires the prosperty of
his country. These are the nurseries in
which those are trained, into whose hands
are to be committed all the great and cam
plicated interests of this mighty nation.
We owe our existence, under God to one of
the most noble struggles in which ever
any patriotic people were engaged ; and to
perpetuate the inheritance thus purchased,
has caused the nation to pass through
trials of such a character as to cause the
stoutest hearts almost to fail; but dark
and desponding as some periods' in our
past history have been, we are admonished
by the history of other nations that we may
see darker days than we have seen, unless
we early implant the seeds of virtue and
intelligence in the minds of those who are
to be the future guardians of this nation.
One among the many obstacles to advance
ment in our schools is INCOMPETENT
TEACHERS. The teacher is the life of the
school, and good teachers will make good
schools. It is argued, however, that teach
ers cannot afford to fit themselves for
teaching, when they receive but a small
compensation, and that only for four, five
or six mouths in the year The first ques
tion to be determined is whether any one is
justifiable in teaching, without making
careful preparation. This is not a ques
tion of so many hours labor, for so many
dollars and cents. The person who en
gages to teach school, engages to train the
immortal minds of those intrusted to his
care, and from his position, he must con
tinually exercise an influence for either
good or evil. It is evident to every re
flecting mind that the impressions made by
the teacher upon the plastic mind of the
child frequently determines its wb vie future
course through life. If a lawyer under
dertakes to manage a case involving a large
amount of property, and fails to gain it
through ignorance of law, or want of abil
ity, it would be but little satisfaction to
his client to be informed that the fee was
very small; or if a physician should un- '
dertake to practice medicine without un
derstandingits properties, or the nature of
the disease, and thereby destroy the health
and endanger the lives of his patients, it
would scarcely satisfy them to be informed
that he worked cheaper than many who I
So I apprehend it will be but little sat
isfaction to our children, who are robbed
of the most precious period of life, and
cheated out of an education by ignorant
teachers, to be informed that they were
not charged much for the robbery. It is
not true, however, that young men and
women contemplating teaching, cannot
afford to qualify themselves for the busi
ness. That training and disciplining of
the mind • which fits a young person for
successfully engaging in the profession of
teaching, is the very best capital that he
can have, and is worth much more to its
possessor than it costs, in any business.
If money, however, is still the object, it
is still poor policy not to endeavor to reach
a high position in the teachers' profession.
There are many young persons who, three
years ago, were on an equality, as far as
attainments and wages were concerned,
but now, there is a wide difference, in
both; the one class did not improve, and
are consequently teaching for $25 or $3O
per month. The other class did improve,
and are receiving more than double these
wages. So taking any view of the sub
ject, it is very poor policy for any engaged
in teaching, not to advance as rapidly as
possible. There is, perhaps, no bette r
;ay of disposing of the dead teachers,
than as Dr Wickersham suggests, to
"take them out by the roots." T.
ARITIEEMETIC is looked upon as one of
the most important branches taught in our
schools. It is sometimes said that our
text books, in this branch of study, are
not as complete as they should be, in those
parts that treat on business, forms and
usages. This deficiency is well supplied
by a work entiled "The Crittenden Com
mercial Arithmetic and Business Journal."
It is not designed to take the place of our
text books in common use, but as supple
mentary to them, and as a standard book
of reference for business men. To the
young man commencing business, it is an

Truancy and Vagrancy.
One would almost infer, after listening
to the discussion on this subject at the late
meeting of the State Teachers' Associa
tion, that the educational millenium was
about to dawn; that the time had come
when our system of public schools has be
come so perfect and so popular that every
truant boy will voluntarily come forward
and say that nothing whatever, neither
marbles nor base ball, neither fishing, swim
ming, nor skating, neither horse-fairs,
clowns nor elephants, has for him the at
tractions that abound in the school-room.
The art educational has become so perfect
and the artists so skillful that the little
brown-faced urchins of the street will
gladly become subjects for treatment for
the pleasure of the operation.
PERRY COUNTY.-A series of institues
has just been held in this county. The
County Superintendent, B. G. Roots, has
divided the county into districts containing
from thirty to forty teachers each, for the
purpose of securing better attendance and
greater interest. His plan is to make the
meetings, as far as possible, model schools,
not lyceums. As a result, there is a great
er amount of individval labor, and a cor
responding earnestness shown by the teach
ers in their work. One of the institutes
had an attendance of twenty-nine teachers,
and twenty-nine subscriptions for the
Teacher were received.
WE understand that the colored school
of this place will give a public entertain
ment at an early day.

IL T. lIELMBOLD, Druggist :
Dear Ser:—l have been a sufferer, for upward
of twenty years, with gravel bladder and kidney
during which time I have used various
medicinal preparations, and have tieen under the
treatment of the most eminent Physicians, experi
encing little relief.
llnving seen your preparations extensively ad
vertised, I consulted with my family physician in
regard to using your Extract Buchu.
I did this because I had used all kinds of ad
vertised remedies, and had 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 ace your remedy.
As you advertised that it was composed of buchu
cubebs and jutdper berries, it occurred to me and
my physician as an excellent" combination, and,
with his advice after an examination of the article
and consulting again with the druggist, I conclud
ed to try it. I commenced its use about eight
months ago, at which time I was confined to my
room. From the first bottle I was astonished and
gratified at the beneficial effect, and after using it
three weeks, was able to walk out. I felt much
like writing you a full statement of my cam at
that time, but thought my improvement might
only be a temporary, and therefore concluded to
defer and see if it would effect a perfect cure,
knowing then it would be of greater value to you,
and more satisfactory to me.
I am now able to report that a cure is effected
after using the remedy for Sive months.
I have not used any now for three months, and
fell as well in all respects, as I ever did.
Your Buchn being devoid of any unpleasant
taste and odor—a nice tonic and invigorator of the
system. Ido not mean to be without it whenever
occasion may require it. use in such affections.
