The Horse in the Stable.
If one would have a good horse on the road,
he must take care of him in the stable. To
the man who is fund of that noble animal, the
horse, the stable is no mean place which is the
home of his faithful servant. A part of the
secret of the differences among horses may be
found in the different ways they are treated in
This building need not have the embellish
ment of architecture, nor be made air tight ;
but it should be comfortable—made to promote
the comfort of its occupant. It should be well
ventilated, by allowing a draught of fresh air
constantly to pass through it, especially dur
ing the warmer ino; ths. Do not allow the
air of the stable to be made offensive and un
healthy by the presence of ammonia escaping
from the excrements. Keep the nif in your
stable as sweet as it is in your own house ; for
such is necessary for the health of a horse.
Plaster of Paris used freely about the sta
ble is quite desirable, both on the score of com
fort and profit. It is cruel to foster a noble
horse in a stable where the air is suffocating,
on account of noxious gases constantly gener
ating and escaping for want of a few quarts
of some absorbent.
The floor of the stall should not have much
inclination —only enough to allow the water to
pass off. The more level the surface on which
a horse stands the better.
It is said that "sprung knees" are occa
sioned partly bv standing on steep floors in the
stable. That such a floor is not pleasant for
the horse, is clearly seen in the fact that when
the horse will stand across his stail, in order
to find the most level position.
Let the horse feel as naturally as possible
in the stable. lie has been furnished with a
long neck, in order that he may reach down to
feed, as he does in the pasture, and not that
he may reach up, and pull out a small lock of
hay from the rack. (Jive a horse a manger to
feed out of, so that he can enjoy eating, and
do not oblige hiin to steal his fodder from a
rack, with narrow spaces, as though he did not
deserve his keeping. It is thought that a
horse will waste h'.s hay if he is f.tl from a
manger ; but he will not, if he has good hay,
given in proper quantities.
The besr horsemen say—feed a horse as yon
do yourself. Give him his breakfast, dinner
and supper, with nothing between meals. It
is a mistaken kindness that keeps hay continu
ally before a horse. AY hen he has more hay
before him than he can eat up clean, he wastes
it, or eats more than his system requires.
A horse should have enough to eat and then,
if not in use, should stand three or four hours
with nothing before him. Such a course of
treatment keeps his appetite keen, and he rel
ishes his dinner.
Let him have a generous snpply of good
bedding. A horse enjoys a good nice bed as
much as a man, and why should he not have
it? A good horse deserves it. Because he
cannot complain sleeping in the wet and dirt
of the stable, or on hard plank, let no man
think that his horse docs not appreciate such
favors as a good bed. He will lie down dur
ing the day occasionally, if he is well cared
for. For summer use, saw-dust makes excel
lent bedding. It is cool, sweet and even ;
and also keeps the stall in a healthy condition.
A supply of fresh, clean water is indispen
sable to the comfort of man and beast. I
have noticed that my horse drinks the most
heartily after eating her sapper, about eight
o'clock in the evening.
Grooming is one of the civilities of the sta
ble, and ought to be attended to daily. It not
only causes a horse to look well, but it pro
A faithful grooming is equal to two quarts
Such attention paid to a good horse is by
no means like " easting pearls before swine."
He who does it and treats his horse kindly, is
snre of his reward.— Maine Farmer.
GIVE HENS M EAT. —Many person complain
that their hens will not lay, and that, notwith
standing their assiduity in furnishing them with
all the articles ordinarily recommended to in
sure fecundity, the eggs they produce will not
" half pay the expenses." Now, we presume
there is something lacking, or the fowls would
not run their owners in debt. IT is not gener
ally understood, even by those who profess to
be most deeply versed in the mysteries of
" henology," that the hen being omnivorous,
requires, to insure fecundity, a very liberal al
lowance of meat ! When enjoying her liberty
in the fields, pastures, or door-yards, the prin
cipal part of her sustenance is derived from in
sects, worms, &e. She partakes but sparingly
at such times of grain ; and often, when that
article is supplied, leaves it for the more invit
ing food which nature supplies her with, in her
favorite haunts. Now, if weconfinc her where
the natural propensity for this description of
food cannot be gratified, even though we sup
ply the best of grain, and in abundance, she
will cease to lay. The privation affects her
health, and will necessarily be an end of pro
fit until the deficiency is supplied. When fresh
meat or fresh fish cannot be supplied, the com
nion scraps of the butcher, which are hard and
compact, can be kept any length of time, an
vSwer all the desired purposes.— Xnc JCnglnnrJ
WHAT SHAME TREKS TO PLANT —For open
streets and ground, the following list comprises
the most choice collection. We place lirst in
order those which we consider the best, all
things taken into account : Silver-leaf maple,
oriental plain, English and American elius, tu
lip-trees, sycamore maples, sugar maples, pin
oak, scarlet oak, burr oak, catalpa, linden, de
ciduous cypress, liquid amber or sweet-gum, la
burnum, cucumber, magnolia, Kentucky coffee
tree, Ac. We omit the evergreens, as we re
commeud setting them in spring, unless it be
done early in autumn. Most of the above
trees can be obtained of first-class nursery
men, and they may all be set in spring, but we
prefer this season of the year, if it can be done
before the ground becomes solid.
The silver-leaf maple, in its foliage, some
what resembles the silver-leaf poplar, and is by
many persons preferred to it. it is the most
rapid growing of the maples.
The other maples are well known as strong,
robust growing trees, with thick, dense foliage,
holding on to late in the autumn ; and they
arc among the most desirable of shade-trees.

THE ELECTRO CHEMICAL BATH,
DIRECT & TO-& FRO ELECTRO MAGNETIC MACHINE.
TAMES HARRIS, ELECTRICIAN, of Towanda. respect
fully informs the public that he has lately procured
from New York the celebrated Electro-Chemical Rath,
which has proven to be one of the most "important and
wonderful discoveries of the age, from its ability to extract
minerals from the human system.
Some eight years ago. a physician of Cincinnati disco
vered the process of extracting minerals from the body,
bv galvanism ; more recently, M. Verges, of New York,
an electro-gilder, having suffered from the introduction of
poisonous minerals into his system in the prosecution of
his art, conceived the idea of removing them by the same
processes, lie succeeded in doing so, and quickly recovered.
He then applied the same means to others similarly af
fected, with like results. His success exceeded his most
sanguine expectations, for not only did these Baths remove
mineral poisons, hut cured many diseases, some of which
were the result of minerals, and some were not.
More recent experiments have fully confirmed the sin
gular power of this Bath to draw from the system all mi
nerals that may be lodged therein, to the great detriment
of health. Very often persons are afflicted by diseases
which are beyond the comprehension of the most skilful
physicians, and which are the effect of poisonous mine
rals accumulating in the system for years, taken in the
shape of calomel, lead, Ac. Ac.
The following are some of the diseases cured by these
baths: Rheumatism. Paralysis, Palsy, Painter's Cholic,
Chronic Ulcers, Glandular Swellings, Scrofula, Cancer,
Neuralia in all its forms, Salt Rheum and Humors of all
He has also S. B.Smith's newlv invented DIRECT AND
TO-AND FRO ELECTROMAGNETIC MACHINE, which
is a great improvement on the Magnetic machines hereto
fore in use. With the aid of the Hath and Machine, wc
have at command all the available medical efficiency of
Electricity. The medical power of the Machine i- verv
great, in "introducing medicines into the system through
the pores of the skin—applying it direi fly to the parts af
fected, which gives an increase of medicinal power over
that of taking it into the stomach, rendering it particular
ly efficacious in all local diseases.
lam now prepared to apply these Bath-, and also the
Machines, at my house in the south part of the U.rough
of Towanda, or I will visit patient- at a distance, who arc
unable by reason of di.-ea.se to come to this plate, at mo
I ain also sole agent for Bradford county, for the above
Machines. JAMES HARRIS.
