Time to Gather and How to Keep Pears.
Ouo of the most important points - in the
iiMiiairement of pears, is to gather them at
the proper time. Summer pears should be
gathered at least teu days before they are ripe :
autumn pears ut least a fortnight, and winter
as nearly as possible about the time the trees
stop growing. If left on until the commence
ment of the fall of the leaf, they are worth
less A pear ripened on the tree is generally
not lit to be eaten. The usual way to deter
mine when pears are tit to be taken in the
house to ri|*an, is to lift them up on the tree
if upon raising thein up, tliev part readily
from the stalk, they can then be picked off.—
A ever shake down pears ; hand pick them all
standing on steps for the purpose. Ttiey
should be light, and so contrived that the lad
der may be disengaged from the back at fig
ure fastening together by a bolt at the fop,
at the top should be a broad step to stand on,
with room for a basket to hold the fruit. Have
in begiuuiug to gather, hand hampers of tliffVr
iut sizes, and also large baskets, or hampers
and wheelbarrows. At the bottoms of the
large baskets place some perfectly dry,, short,
tine grass or hay, from the summer mowing,
kept clean, and dry for the purpose. You can
also tell, as a mark when the fruit is ripe,
w hen it begins tp fall—(not wind fall, or from
the catcrpiller.) If the fruit comes off with
out any force used, it is presumed to be ripe
enough ; but sickness Ac., of the trees may
make it atom riper than in fact it is.
If the fruit be in the least bruised, it will
not keep ; therefore the person on the steps
must pick it carefully, and lav it in the basket,
and empty the small baskets into the large.
When the fruit begins to fall itself, cover the
ground un er the tree with soft grass. Those
that drop should be used tirst, as they will not
keep near as long as those picked by hand.
In the fruit room lay soft grass n the floor
and the fruit gently from the basket in heaps
on the grass. To sweat the fruit, cover it
two or three inches thick on the top with some
of the grass ; the heaps may be two or three
feet high. Let them lie in heaps two weeks ;
then open and turn them over, wiping each
pear with a dry cloth, to be frequently dried
during the process. The heaps then remain
eight or ten days more, covered as before, then
wipe the fruit and barrel or place them in bas
kets, as they will sell better in bushel baskets,
and they are then ready to be sent to market.
Always gather fruit in dry weather, and when
the dew is off, and not in the evening after i
the dew has begun to fall. Air should some- j
times be admitted in the fruit room.
Powniug savs : " Mat y sorts of pears that
are comparatively tough if ripened in a cold j
apartment, become very melting, bntierv,
and juicy, when allowed to mature in a room
kept at a temperature of 00 or TO dog." He
also writes : So important is the ripening of
pears in the house, that most amateurs of this
fruit find it to their advantage to have a small
room set apart and fitted up with shelves in
tiers, to be used solely as a fruit rco:n." Mr.
ilovey states " he keeps his winter pears as
be keeps his apples—in barrels in the cellar,'"
and succeeds well. Pears can be placed also
for preserving in tin boxes. Winter pears will
generally sweat after the boxes have been fill
ed a few days ; they should then be taken
out and wiped dry. When the weather be
comes cold, the boxes should be removed to a
dry cellar. lam convinced that pears will
ripen better in a dark closet than in a light
I submit the above numerous ways of keep
ing pears to your subscribers, nr.tl they can
themselves decide this season which is the best
bv giving all a fair trial. And the winter
rarities will come very acceptable to the New
V ear visitors at your homes, and form a splen
did dish on the holiday festive board. T. S. C.

THE Arm; BORER. —Some affirm that the
borer never attacks a tree except at a point
" here the bark at least is already dead ; and
that instead of the dead bark and wood iu the
vicinity of its depredations being the effect, it
is in fact the cause of the attack. Of course
after the borer once obtains a lodgement iu the
t cc it spreads the niisc'iief and hastens the de
iay of the tree. Those who adopt this theo
ry viy that the borer generally attacks the
tree on the south-west side ; and the reason
n-signed for this is, that while the tree is young
and the branches few and small, affording but
1 ttle shade, the bark is frequently killed iu
spots bv the afternoon sun ; and as soon as
there is the smallest dead spot to he found
the borer is into it, and once there, he spreads
disaster all around him.
Assuming this theory to he true, the reme
dy proposed is simple and obvious. First,
branch the tree as low as practicable ; and
secondly, in planting, lean it slightly to the
south-west. These two precautions will afford
every protection from the scorching rays of
the southwestern sun. J. K. SCII.MAN, A'ich

TI RNII' FEEDING A\O BITTER MAKING —My
manner of feeding turnip? is this: When tak
ing them out of the ground I dress them close,
cutting off nl! the roots and fillers. It is the
taj) root and its appendages that impregnate
the milk and butter in a great measure. Von
or any one may tell this by chewing them,
and they will leave a pungent taste in the
mouth. The next operation is—l cut them
as long as twenty-four hours before feeding,
an 1 throw a handful of salt over them when
cut, so that what smell remains passes off in
the atmosphere ; and last, I never or very sel
dom feed until after milking. Correspondence

A (TIMIEN HAKE. —Most persons who pre
tend to cultivate a garden do so very imper
fectly, using, perhaps, a miserable old wooden
toothed rake, and raising ten noxious weeds to
one useful vegetable. At this point, some
ccomomieal genius may say he can't afford to
pay a dollar for a garden rake. If so, all right
I 'll tell you how to make one. Take a piece
of hard wood, long enough for the head, one
inch thick, two inches broad in the middle ;
taper it off narrow at the ends ; bore small
holes through in it, the proper distance apart
or teeth ; into these drive twenty-penny nails
this makes the head. Next take a piece of
refuse board and make a handle, leave it three
or four inches broad at one end, and you have
n pretty good garden rake with but little cost,
and wheu a thing only lasts only one season,
it is perhaps the most profitable rake to use.

hut effectual Cathartic were more freely used. No per
son eaa feel well while a costive habit of l ody prevails ;
besides it soon generates serious and often fatal diseases,
which might have been avoided by the timely and judi
cious use of a good purgative. This isalike true of Colds,
Feverish symptoms, and Billions derangements. The}'
all tend to become or produce the deep seated and for
midable distempers which load the hearses all over the
land. Hence a reliable family physic is of the first im
portance to the public health, and this Pill has been per
fected with consummate ~kill to meet that demand. An
exten-dvo trial of its virtues by Physicians, Professors,
and Patients, lias shown results surpassing anything
hrtherto known of auv medicine. Cures have been ef
fected beyond belief, were they not substantiated by per
sons of such exalted positions and character as to forbid
the suspicion of untruth.
Among the eminent gentlemen who have testified in
favor of these Pilis. we may mention :
I)oct. A. A. IIAYKS, Analytical Chemist of Boston,
and State As-ayer of Massachusetts, whose high Profes
sional character is endorsed bv the—
Hon. EDWARD EVERETT, Senator of the United
ROBERT C. WINTHROP, Ex-Speaker of the House of
ABBOTT LAWRENCE, Minister Plen. to England.

Did space permit, we could give many hundred certi
ficates from all parts where the Pill.- have leen used, but
evidence even more convincing than the experience of
eminent public men, is found in their effects upon trial.
These Pills, the result of long investigation and study,
are offered to the public as the lest and most complete
which the present state of medical science can afford
They are compounded not of the drugs themselves, but of
the medicinal virtues only of Vegetable remedies extract
ed by ('hetnical process in a state of purity, and combin
ed together iu such a manner a< to insure the best results.
This system of composition for medicines has lieen found
in Cherry Pectoral and Pills lioth, to produce a more ef
ficient remedy than had hitherto been obtained by any
process. Ihe reason is perfectly obvious. While by the
old mode ot composition, every medicine is burdened with
more or less of acrimonious and injurious qualiti's, by
this each individual virtue only that is desired for the cu
rative effect is pre-ent. All the inert and obnoxious
qualities of each substance employed are left behind, the
curative virtues only being retained. Hence it is self
evident the effects should prove as they have proved,
more purely remedial, and the Pills a more powerful an
tidote to disease than anv other medicine known to the
As it is frequently expedient that many medicines
should be taken under the counsel of an attending Physi
cian, and as he could not properly judge of a remedy
without knowing its composition, 1 have suppled the ac
curate Formula- by which both my Pectoral and Pills are
uiade, to the w hole body of Practitioners in the United
States aim British American Provinces. If however there
should be any one who has not received them, they will
be forwarded by inai! to bis request.
Of all the Patent Medicines that are offered, bow few
would be taken it their composition was known ! Their
life consists in their mystery. 1 have uo mysteries.
The composition of my preparations is laid open to all
men, aiul all who are competent to judge on the subject
freely acknowledge their convictions of their intrinsic
merits. The Cherry Pectoral was pronounced by scienti
fic men to be a wonderful medicine before its effects were
known. Many eminent Physicians have declared the
same thing of my Pills, and even more confidently, and
are willing to certify that their anticipations were more
than realized by their effects upon trial.
They operate by their powerful influence on the inter
nal viscera to purity the blood and stimulate it into heal
thy action—remove the obstructions of the stomach, bow
els, liver, and other organs of the body, restoring their
irregular action to health, and by correcting, wherever
they exist, such derangements as are the first origin of

GREAT IMPROVEMENT IN WATER PIPE
CHAIN PUMP TUBING.
fpilfi suhscrit>er having lately commenced the manufac-
JL ture of WATER TUBING, at Wilkes-Barre, Pa. with
WYC'KOFF'S PATENT BORING MACHINE,
which produces the article so long sought after by Pump
Mauiitacturers and others, would call the attention of Rail
road Superintendents, Pump Dealers, Farmers, Village
Corporations and all others in want of cheap and durable
Water Conductors, to the Pipes manufactured by this pro
cess. They are made from solid Pine and other scantling
from 3 to 6 inches square, according to size of bore and
pressure required, in sections 8 feet long, with a socket
joint accurately fitted, both air and water tight. As Wy
cliniTs Machine bores directly through the centre every
time, the timber need only 1m; large enough to sustain tiie
pressure wanted, as the smaller they are the more perfect
ly they become saturated with water, and the longer they
will hist, when laid in the ground. It is a well-ascertain
ed fact that while the body or thick part o ' a pump log is
entirely decayed, the thin sharpened end will be sound ;
at the same time they never stop up from impurities of
the water or being flattened, are free from rust or poison
ous o.vydes, lasting about as long as lead or iron, at only
one-sixth the cost.
The above-mentioned Pipes have been extensively and
thoroughly tested in most of the Northern States, for the
fiast two years, and wherever introduced they immediate
y supersede all other kinds of Pipe or Chain Pump Tub
ing. They can he made to stand any desirable head of
water, and can be shipped to any part of the country with
safety and at small expense.
