repeatedly for heavy seed, and sow as early
as the soil is fit, drilling in two and a half
bushels. Wheat—Select by the fan-mill
the heaviest kernels. Soak skimming off
the foul seeds, in strong brine, in which is
some sulphate of copper, and roll in dry

Horses in shedding their coats need ex

a day and feeding succulent food—roots,
grain grown for soiling, or mashes as a

time warm sheds and sunny yards, and be
even on the look-out for chilled or feeble
lambs; and wrap such in warm sheep-skins,
give a few spoon-fulls of warm milk punch,
and lay them near the kitchen fire. If

gentle rubbing until dry, warming by the

Charcoal for Horses' Wind.
" Many years ago, I recollect,' says a
correspondent of a London paper, 'a horse
being brought into the yard of Joseph Big
nal, a celebrated man for keeping hunters
at Croydon. The horse was much affected
in the wind, and could hardly move from
distress. In a few days this animal did
MB regular work as a hunter, with perfect
ease and comfort to itself. Tar water was
the cure. Tar is carbon, and charcoal is
also carbon; charcoal in the powder is more
easily given than tar water. I have tried
it with more beneficial effect, and I think it
stands to reason that the removal of nox
ious gasses and flatulence from the stomach
of the horse must improve his wind and
condition. Tar is frequently given with
benefit in ease of chronic diseases of the
respiratory organs; but its effects are total
ly different from those produced by char
The turkey is the most tender when
young, and most dif4cult to raise of all the
domestic fowls; yet with proper care in set
ting the eggs under game hens and coop
ing the,brood at night regularly, while the
tuakeys are young, they may be easily
reared in great abundance. Never feed
the young turkeys boiled, eggs or corn meal
dough, or wheat 'bred. crumbs. They need
very little food of any kind under seven
dns of age, and should have nothing but
sour milk set in pans. At about a week or
ten days give them also wheat screenings
or crumbs soaked in sour milk. Let this
be their only feed till they begin to feather,
and then give them grain of any kind.. Tie

so that she can enter at night to roost. At
two weeks old let the hen loose to roam,
and if she is a game hen she will do the
work of rearing the. brood.—Prairie

Wood i en, water pipes were recently taken
out in Woodward avenue, Detroit, laid
there forty-three years ago. The wood is
apparently as sound as ever, showing no
signs of decay, even retaining the bark,
and on cutting through it into the wood,
the timber was found as bright and sound
as ever. The pipes were made of tamarac
logs, about sixteen feet in length, and eight
or ten inches in diameter. The pipes were
disconnected from the distributing pipes
several years ago, They were embedded
in clay at a depth of four or five feet.

'The lowa State Register says: W. H.
Hendrix, residing nine miles north of the
city, has a common cow whose every twelve
quarts of milk yields over three pounds of
good yellow butter, and the cow is guilty of
doing this trick nine months out of every
twelve. If any bovine in the State can out
butter our Polk county specimen, we
"would like to bear from her.
Latin and Greek are apt to be underval
ued in popular estimation, because we make
so little direct use of them, either in read
ing, writing, or speaking, and especially
because they concern so little our material
interest. If direct utility or material gain
always determined the worth of a study,
the classics would hardly be entitled to our
consideration, except for purely literary
and professional purposes.
To the literary student or professor of
languages, who studied and teaches lan
guage as a science, the classics arc '
mediate value. In the legal profession
some direct use is made of Latin. In the
ministerial calling a necessity occurs for
the study of Greek. In science both Lat
in and Greek area help to the memory, if ,
nothing more; for scientific terms come
almost wholly from these ancient tongues.
If a person were to travel in some parts o
Europe, as in Scandinavia and among the
Slavonic people, he might even now employ
his Latin in oral intercourse.
Thus it may appear that the classics are
neither dead nor wholly out of date ; that
they have still some direct uses; that they
are even at present, to some extent, both
written and spoken. These advantages,
however, do not reach the ordinary schol
ar, who may never tread with frozen feet
the snows of Lapland ; who may never be
a lawyer, nor a physician, nor a teacher,
nor a preacher, nor a learned professor.
To him the classics are valuable only for
their indirect benefits, which, indeed, out-.
weigh their direct uses, and rank them
among and even above those, studies es
teemed the most practical.
It remains briefly to vindicate the im-
portance of classical study, not only as a
branch of professional, or university, or
collegiate education, but in the course of
academic instruction. The Academy, or
Classical Institute, stands between the
Common School and the University or
College. This is our position. We advo
cate n) extreme view, which would place
the classics with or back of the primary
English studies. Following the primary
stage of education they may be introduced
with profit. First, as a means of discip
line no study can be considered of equal,
still less of superior, value to that of the
classics. Education is a process of mental
training. It is not what we put into the
mind that educates, but what we get out
of it. The word means a leading or draw
: ing out of the mind, getting it to act, to
attend, to observe and think, to reason, to
judge, to feel. The worth of a boy's
schooling is not his knowledge, but his
ability to gain knowledge; not the ideas
and facts drummed into him, but the hab
its of thought and attention into which he
is drilled. In this consists the great value
of classical study, that it gives to the mind
the most vigorous, varied and useful dis
cipline; setting to work every faculty, and
reason and imagination, perception and
memory, and calling into play just that
kind and method of thought that are re
quired in practical life. Though the
school-boy should never talk a word of
Latin, though he should forget all he has
read of Greek, yet the discipline they give
abide with 'dui, and lie shall be called to
use his mind every day just at lie was
taught to do while studying and reading
and writing his classics.
Some acquaintance with the classics
is necessary in the study of language.
Language is the vehicle, and in great meas
ure the condition, of thought. The study
of language facilitates the proper use of it;
and every rational being, who has any
thing more than a primary education, should
have some intelligent conception of the
laws and forms of human speech. These
can not be studied so well in living tongues,
which are imperfect and changing, as in
fixed and finished models of the past.
Latin and Greek are the most perfect
standards that man has ever produced.
They have a precision and regularity and
completeness not to be found in English or
any other modern language. In Latin we
learn the laws of grammar and the princi
ples of etymology; in Greek we become
acquainted with a rich and copious vocab
ulary, and enter upon the study of words.
Much time will be saved in acquiring a
knowledge of language by consulting the 1 .
Again, classical study is the best help to
a knowledge of English. Every teacher
knows how difficult it is to teach the art
of English Composition with. any thing
:like satisfactory results. Translating Latin
and Greek makes. it a daily practice to
select ends and form sentences. By this
means a familiarity is gained with our
mother tongue, not to be acquired by an
occasional composition, or frequent perusal
of good English authors. Moreover, Eng
lish is based*, to a very great extent, on •
Greek and Latin; and we learn English in
these even more, as Marsh allows, than in
the study of Anglo-Saxon, from which our
language immediately sprung, and the
study of which is almost essential to the
Finally, for the subordinate aims of edu
cation, such as the acquisition of knowl
edge, the cultivation of taste, the harmoni
ousdevelopment of all the faculties, a
breadth of thought, and wealth of culture,
no study can supersede that of the classics.
This age of universities is against all one
idea system of education. No controversy
will now be waged as between Language
and Mathematics and Science. All are
needful, and neither can take the place of
others. Mathematics have their direct
uses, the far-seeing, almost infinite, appli
cation of a few simple rules and principles.
The discipline is mechanical and the gen
eral knowledge nothing. Science has, also,
manifold uses in all pertaining to the ma
terial advancement of the race, and in much
relating to the moral progress of mankind.
It opens, too, a wide field of knowledge and
culture. But its discipline is not so per
fect and varied as that of language, while
the range of its knowledge is not so high
nor essential. '•Words are fossil thoughts,"
says Robertson. Science acquaints us with
man. If one reveals the physical history
of the globe, the other presents the records
of human history. The former makes
known to us the world of matter, the latter
displays to us the world of mind.—lllinoi s

11. T. 'Minot., Druggist:
Dear have been a sufferer, fur upward
of twenty years, with gravel bladder and kidney
affections, during which time I have used various
medicinal preparations, end have been under the
treatment of the most eminent Physicians, experi
encing little relief.
Ha;ing seen your preparation? extensively ad
vertised, I consulted with my family physician in
regard to using your Extract Buchu.
•- • • • • .- • • - - -
did this be;;use 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 use your remedy.
As you advertised that it was composed of huchu,
ettbebs and juniper berries, it occurred to me end
my physician as au 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 abont 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 ease 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 valve to you.
and more satisfactory to MC.
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, and
fell as well in all respects, as I ever did.
Your Buchu 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 its use in such affections.
