Hard Water Versus Soft.
Dr. Letheby, at a recent meeting of the
medical officers of health of Great Britain,
took occasion to renew his statement, al
ready referred to in our pages, of superi
ority, in a sanitary point of view, of a
hard-water supply to towns over that of
soft water. Basing his arguments first
upon physiological considerations, he
maintained that the earthy matters in the
hard waters were essential for the con
struction of the osseous tissues, and that
they supplied much of the calcareous salts
necessary for the nutrition of the frame,
and that, by repndioting their use, we
should be throwing away one provision of
nature for this purpose. No one could
say that hard water was not far more agree
able to drink than soft water. He main
tained, in the second place, that the finest
specimens of the English race were to be
found in regions where the waters were
hard, from flowing out of, or over, calca
reous strata. The same was the case with
cattle and horses; witness those reared in
such counties as Durham and Leicester,
and the horses of Flanders, while the
Shetlands only produced a race of ponies.
But his principal argument was that on
as their water-supply was known, accord
ing to the degrees of hardness of the water
the average of the death-rate was least in
those towns supplied with hard water, and
increased as the waters became softer and
softer, until it was highest in those where
the water supplied was most soft. These
statements, however, were met with much
vigor by several speakers, among the most
eminent of whom was Mr. Wanklyn, who
endeavored to show that the dedhctions of
Dr. Letheby were based upon _incorrect
premises, and that the case was very far
from being proved.—Agricultural Report
Have a sack made of cheap muslin or
domestic goods somewhat longer than is re
quired to merely hold theham. Then gather
some dry broom sedge and crop it finely in
your cutting box ; or if you happen to be
minus such a contrivance chop it with a
hatchet or axe. Place a few handfuls of
this in the bottom of your sack, and then
having wrapped a newspaper nice around
your ham slip it in upon the chopped sedge.
Proceed next to fill up the sack by
ramming your chopped sedge tightly
around the ham on all sides ; the size of
the sack should allow of its being an inch
thick. Sew or tie it up and the work is
Hams put up in this way will keep for
years through all kinds of weather, for
while the sedge is cooling in its effects, it
absorbs the moisture attracted by the salt
and bars off the fly. We take it that straw
or thoroughly drlbd grass of almost any
kind would act as well, though we have
no experience with anything salve broom
How to Cure a Kicking Horse.
A correspondent of the Vermont Farm
er writes: "In answer to an inquiry, 'how
to cure a kicking mare,' let me communi
cate a method which has proved effective
in a bad case. With a strong harness,
hitch to a stout whiffle tree, which has a
rope attached to it long enough to allow a
man to hold the mare by the head, while
another, holding the rope slack but firmly,
moves the traces or whiffletree against the
mare's leg's tempting here to kick. Allow
the whiffletree to fly high when she kicks,
but bring it back every time. Let her
play with the arrangement until she is
thoroughly tired of it and will not kick
at it. Without harnessing her in any
other way, try the same every day, until
she will allow the whiffletree and traces, or
anything, to brush and strike against her
legs without showing any fright or dislike
even when fresh."
How to do up Shirt-Bosoms.
We have often heard ladies expressing
a desire to know by what process the fine
gloss observed on new linens, shirt-bosoms,
etc., is produced, and in order to gratify
them, we subjoin the following recipe for
making gum-arabic powder—put it into a
pitcher, and pour on it -apint of boiling
water, (according to the degree ofstrength
you desire,) and then, having covered it,
let it set all night. In the morning pour
it carefully from the dregs into a clean
bottle, cork it and keep it for use. A ta
ble-spoonful of gum water, stirred in a
pint of starch that has been made in the
usual manner, will give to lawns (either
white or printed) a look of newness when
nothinc else can restore them after wash
,- mtg. it is also geed (much diluted) for
thin muslin and bobinct.
Blue Purple, Fast Color.—One hund
red and ninety pounds of wool are first dip
ped in the blue vat to a light shade, then
boil in a solution of fifteen pounds of alum
and three pounds of half refined tartar,
for one hour and a half ; the wool taken out,
cooled and let stand twenty-four hours.
Then boil in fresh water eight pounds of
powdered cochineal for a few minutes;
cool the kettle to 170° Fah. ; handles the
prepared wool in this f,r one hour, in
which time let it boil for three-quarters of
an hour, when ready to cool, rinse and
dry. By coloring first with cochineal, as
aforesaid, and finishing in the blue vat the
fast purple of dahlia, so much ad_aired in
German broadcloths, will be produced, Tin
acids must not be used in this color.
Cough in Horses,
Cough may be occasioned by several
different diseases—in several cases, of
which the diseases themselves must be re
moved. When simple cold, slippery elm
or flax seed tea is useful, and liquorice
may be added. But nursing is the great
remedy. Feed succulent food only—if in
winter, moistened cut feed; if in summer,
juicy grass or clover—never sweat the an
imal. Blanket, where there is the least
cold or chilliness, and the horse will doubt

Through struggle and suffering, at the cc

American Idea embodied in the preamble to our lathe.
Declaration of Independence approaches its complete
attention. The noble, inspiring assertion that "all men a
created equal," and endowed by their 'rector with inali.
able rights to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness,
no longer a glittering generality, a poet's fancy, a plot,
opher's speculation, but the recognized base of our poll
cal fabric. The benign Revolution, which dates from t
Boston Massacre of 1170, finds its logical completion,jc
one century later, in the XVth Amendment, which giv
to the equal political and civil rights of every man born
naturalized in our Republic the shield and defense of t
Federal Constitution. The billows of Caste and Privile
may roar and rage around that rock, and may transient
seem on the point of washing it away; but its fmandatio
