Mark Twain in Trouble.
Mark Twain has ins troubles in com- i
mon with the rest of humanity. His
last annoyance was caused by a rail-;
'And then, there were the peddlers I
on the cars. I bought out the pop
corn boy to get rid of him, because I
was trying to compose a poem for a;
young lady's album, and did not want
to be disturbed, liut he came right
back with a stock of peanuts. I took
a few and hurried away, and lie re
turned with some ice-cream candy 1
don't like ice-cream candy and peanuts
together, but I invested at once,because
an inspired rhyme bad been born to
me, and I wanted to set it down before
it slipped b}* me. Then the scoundrel
came back with tobbacco and segars,
and afterward with oranges, imitation
ivory baby whistles, fig paste and ap
pies; and then he went away and was
gone some lime, and 1 was encouraged
to hope the train had run over hiin.'
Such was not the case. Ho was only
keeping his most malignant outrage
for the last. lie was getting his liter
'And from that time forward that
degenerate youth did nothing but
march from one car to another, and
afflict the passengers with specimen
copies of tlii? vilest blood-and-thunder
romances on earth. 'Lionel Warbur
ton, or the Perjurer's Doom;'' Godfrey
do Langly, or tho Desperado's Re
venge,—those were some of his mildest
works, and on their backs were pic
tures of stabbing affrays and duels,
and people shoving other people down
precipices, and wretched woodcuts of
women being rescued from terrific
perils of all possible kinds—and they
were so criminally homely that any;
rightminded man would take a placid !
satisfaction in seeing them suffer v
sudden and violent death. But that
peddler boy peddled those atrocious
books right along for hours together,
and I gave up my poem at last, and
devoted all my energies to driving liirn
away, and trying to say any thing that;
would make him unhappy.'

then at the lady, and handing it back, i
said: 'l'm exceedingly obliged to you, j
madam, hut really I'm in no immediate j

my old woman's ducks, and wanted -
mo to drive' em up and catch'em him (
self, and so ho chased 'cm round and -

Wo often hear of remarkable c
cases of 'absence of mind.' Here is ;
one equal as anything we have seen t
lately. The man was doubtless a verv ;

he landed from the steamboat Potomac ;<
at Natches, 'I say, cap'n, this here ain't 11
all.' 'That's all tho baggage you I
brought on hoard, sir,' replied the cap I
tain. 'Well, see now, I grant it all O >
K. according to list—four boxes, three i
chests, two ban' boxes, a portmanty, t
two hams—one part c-ut—three ropes t
of inyons and a tea kettle; but you see, t
cap'n, I am duberson. I feel there's r
something short. Though I've count- a
ed 'em nine times, and never took my |
eyes off 'em while on board, there's c
somethin' not right somehow.' 'Well <>
stranger, the time is up; there is all I e
know of; so bring your wife and five
children out of the cabin, and we are
off.' 'Them's 'em, darn it; them's 'em ! lc
I knowed I had forgot something.' bi
FATTE.MXG AMM tLS.
There are some rules which may be
advantageously adopted in feeding an
jimals, which, however obvious, are
j often passed over or neglected, and we
propose to lay before our readers a few
! of these rules.
It is evident that when we wish to
fatten an animal, we must not expect
any labor of him, and hence the food
| for a fattening animal should be given
to him in that form which will require
the least labor on his part to convert
it into the proper shape for swallow
ing. The ox that is obliged to wan
der over an acre to get the food which
he should find on a few square rods—
| the horse that is three or four hours
j eating the coarse food he would swal
low ( just as well masticated) in fifteen
minutes, it the grain was ground, and
the hay cut as it should be—the sheep
that spends hours in making its way
into a turnip which, if it were sliced,
jit would cat in as many minutes—the
pig that would consume time and waste
;grain in eating corn off the cob, when
it would make more fat and less work
I tor it ii it had been ground and mixed
with water —may indeed fatten, hut
much less rapidly than if there food
was given to them in a proper manner
From this we may deduce the rule that
all food intended for a fattening ani
mal should as far as possible he put
into proper swallowing order before
the animal gets it.
From the time the fattening process
begins until it is fully accomplished,
the animal should never he without
food. Health and appetite will be
! best promoted by a change of food
rather than by limiting the quantity.
The animal that is stuffed and starv
ed by turns may have streaked meat,
but is made too slowdy cither for the
pleasure or profit of the farmer. When
asked to account for the fine appear
lance of his pen of fat bogs, a farmer
answered that 'he never allowed them
to squeal' This is a great point.—
When we approach a hog pen, and
j the contents set up a universal squeal,
we know something is wrong either in
bed or hoard; and when on going into
j a shecpfoid causes a universal bleating,
;it is a sign that food or salt is wanted
Another important point, which is
second only to quantity, is that the
| food should be given at regular peri
jods as well as in regular quantities.—
| If fed irregularly, the animal, although
it may have enough, will soon acquire
! a restless disposition, is disturbed by
! every appearance of its keeper, and is
never in that quiet state which so much
promotes the laying on of fat. To
those who have not tried it, it will he
i surprising how soon an animal acquires
habits of r-tgu'ianly in l ceding. and
. !a.'TWV* soon the influence of this is felt in
the improvement of his condition.
\\ hen at the regular hour the pig has
had its 'pudding,' and the sheep his
turnips, they compose theffisclves for
rest with the consciousness that their
digestion will not be disturbed or their
quiet broken by unwonted invitations
All animals fatten better in the dark
than in the light, and this can only be
accounted for by the increased quiet.
In the dark the animal remains per
fectly quiet, while in the light the re
verse is often the case. Some kinds of
stock which are the most irritable in
confinement, as turkeys and geese,are
found to lay on fat best when confined
in the dark and fed only at stated pe
riods. There is no surer proof that a
pig is doing well than to see him eat
his meal quickly and go to bed 13sleep
until feeding time again.
Animals while fattening should nev
er be alarmed, never rapidly driven,
never led at unreasonable hours, and
above all things never be allowed to he
in want of food even for half an hour.

To Preserve Strawberries. —To two
pounds of fine large strawberries, add
two pounds of powdered sugar, and
put them in a preserving kettle, over
a slow fire, till the sugar is melted;
then boil them precisely twenty min
utes as fast as possible; have ready a
number of small jars, and put the fruit
in boiling hot. Cork and seal the jars
immediately, and keep them through
the summer in a cold, dry cellar. The
jars must be heated before the hot
fruit is poured in, otherwise they will
Strawberry Jelly. —Express the juice
from the fruit through a cloth, strain
it clear, weigh, and stir to it an equal
proportion of the finest sugar dried and
reduced to powder; when this is dis
solved place the preserving pan over a
very clear fire, and stir the jelly often
until it boils; clear it carefully from
scum, and boil it quickly from fifteen
to twenty minutes. This receipt is for
a moderato quantity of the preserve ;
a very small portion will require much
Cherries Preserved. —Take fine
cherries, not very ripe; takeoff the
stems, and take out tho stones; save
whatever juice runs from them ; take
an equal weight of whito sugar; make
the syrup of a teacup of water for each
pound, set it over the fruit until it is
dissolved and boiling hot, then put in
the juic-e and cherries, boil them gent
ly until c!e:;r throughout; take them
from Ihe syrup with a skimmer, and
spread them on flat dishes to cool; let
the syrup boil until it is rich and quite
thick; set it to cool and settle; put
the Iruit into jars and pots, and pour
the syrup carefully over; let them re
main open till the next day ; then cover
as directed. Sweet cherries uro im
proved by the addition of a pint of red
eurrant-juicc, and half a pound of su
gar to it, for four or five pounds of
Currant Jelly. —Pick fino red, but
ong ripe currants from the stems •

a quart at a time through a thin mus
lin; wring it gently, to get all the
liquid; put a pound of white sugar to

all dissolved; set it over a gentle fire; 5
let it become hot, and boil for fifteen

THE Greyer & Baker Elastic-Stitch Sk-wing Machines
are superior to all others fur the following reasons;
1. They sew direct from the spools, and require uo
rewinding of thread.
2. They are more easily understood and used, and
less liable to derangement than other machines.
I 3. They are capable of executing perfectly, without
j change of adjustment, a much greater variety of work
than other machines.
4. The stiich made hy these machines is much more
fiim, elastic, and durable, e.-peeially upon articles
which require to be washed and ironed, than anv
I other stitch.
5. This stitch, owing to the manner in which the
under thread i inwrought, is much the most plump
and beautiful in use, and retains this plumpness and
| beauty even upon articles frequently washed and
' ironed until they are worn out.
6. The structure of the seam is such that though it
be cut or broken at intervals of only a few stitches it
will neither opeu, run, or ravel, but remains firm and
