' Tliis is au odd name to many, though not
more so tlian was ru-ttt-lia-ga only a few years
since. But whatever may be thought of the
name, the tiling itself is excellent. \\ ith in
it takes the place of both cabbages and tur
nips, and is decidedly superior to either of
those articles—to our taste and digestion.—
Several subscribers have enquired " wnat it's
like ?" " how it's grown ?" " how it's cooked ?"
"how it tastes?" Answer. — Kohl rabi is a
kind of turnip cabbage a cross between t!ie
two. Imagine a short cabbage stalk with a
round turnip upon the hp of it, and about a
dozen small, long-stemmed leaves growing out
from as many points of the turnip, and you
have an idea" of " what it's like." It may be
grown precisely like a turnip, and quite as ca
sily. If wanted early, start the plants in a
lio't-bed, and transfer them to the open ground
as soon as danger of frost is past. It grows
faster than cabbages and is even more hardy
We sowed seed in the open ground where they
were to grow without transplanting, on the
JSth day of last May, and commenced cooking
on the Ist of August. To cook them we sev
er the heads from the stalk, remove the leaves,
cut into quarters, or into six or eight prices,
according to the size of the head, and boil in
water until cooked through, which may be
known by trying them with a fork. They are
served up with drawn butter, or cream gravy,
similarly to turnips. They arc sweeter than
cabbage, and more tender and less strong to
the taste than most varieties of turnips. IN c
find them more agreeable and far more diges
tible than either cabbages or turnips.
PIG MUCK ! DIG MUCK ! !—We have very
often referred to the value of muck and swaiup
mud as fertilizers for all crops, and on all
soils not well supplied with organic matter,
and especially of the great utility of mixing it
in large quantities with the yard manure, but
we eanuot return to this topic too often. If
we accomplish nothing else than to stir up far
mers to appropriate to their fields a moiety of
the rich stores of organic matter now lying
useless in the swamps, swales, and low spots,
we shall not labor in vain All these black
earths are the remains of plants, and, as we
have formerly shown they furnish just the ele
ments to nourish our plants of every kind. If
already attended to, note is the time to dig
out and pile up large stores of these materials
before the ground gets wet. The ear'.-
ing to yards and fields can be done at leisure,
in the later Autumn, or Winter months. Re
member that one load of manure and two
loads of muck are better than two loads of
manure not so treated.
SOMKTHIXG ABOUT Scnoous.—We know a
man w ho last summer hired four eolts pastured
on a farm, some five miles distant. At least
once in two weeks he got into a wagon and
drove over to see how his juvenile horses far
ed. He made minute inquiries of the keeper
as to their health, their daily watering, Ac.,
lie himself examined the condition of the pis
ture, and when a dry season came on, made spe
cial arrangements to have a daily allowance
of meal, and he was careful to know that this
was regularly supplied.
This man had four children attending school
kept in a small building erected at the cross
roads. Around this building on three sides i
a space of land six feet wide : the fourth sdc
is on a line with the street. There is not a
shade tree in sight of the building. Of the
interior of the school house, we ueed uot speak.
We wish to state one fact only. This owner
of those colts, and the father of those children
has never been in that school house to inquire
after the comfort, health or mental-food
daily dealt out to his offspring. In the latter
part of the summer we chanced to ask, " who
teaches your school ?" his reply was, " he did
not know, he believed her name was Parker,
but he hud no time to look after school matters. 1 '
FI.OIUCUT.TCRE. —The plants being '""lit of the
house, there need be little said at this time.—
The required attention is in giving water ac
cording to their different constitutions and
habits. Where there is no rain or river wa
ter, it should stand at least one day in buts or
cisterns, to take the chilly air from it, and be
come softened by the surrounding atmosphere.
This is mora essential to the health of the
plants than is generally supposed. The small
plants in dry weather will require water eve
nings and mornings. Give regular syringing*
as may be required. There are frequently
rains continuing for several days, which will
materially injure many plants if they are not
turned on their sides, or defended by sash or
shutters, until the rain is over, especially small
plants. The syringings should never he done
till after the watering at the roots, and they
should never be more seldom than every al
ternate evening. Turn all plants frequently,
to prevent them from being drawn to one side
by the sun or light. Carefully look over them
at these turnings, to detect any insects, and
observe that the tuberous-rooted or deciduous
geraniums are not getting too much water,
thoy being now dormant.— American Farmer.
FEEDING HORSES. —Your remarks in relation
to the amount of hav and grain which a horse
will consume per day, have attracted my at
tention. The actual amount of food consum
ed by a horse will depend upon his form and
disposition. I have that horses of a compact
form and quiet disposition, weighing about 1,-
200 pounds, and exerting a force equivalent to
moving 150 or 200 pounds at the rate of two
miles per hour, for tea hours per day. and six
days per week, will require each twenty
pounds of oats, fourteen pounds of hay and
seventy pounds of water, with a comfortable
stable, ami to keep them iu good order. Then
also, much of the condition of the horse will
depend on his having a driver who knows how
to use him without harshness.
This is the conclusion I have arrived at, af
ter thirty years' experience, with a great num
ber of horses on my hands most of the time,
the cost of keeping horses for farm work is
expensive, when compared with the cost of
keeping oxcu or mules.— COß., in Mich. Far

Purgative Medicine is not more or less required, and innch
sickness and suffering might be prevented, if a harmless
hut effectual Cathartic were more freely used. No per
son can fee! well while a costive habit of body prevails :
besides it soon generates serious and often fatal diseases,
which might have been avoided by the timely and judi
cious ue of a good purgative. This isalike true of Colds,
F< veri.-h symptoms, and Billions derangements. They
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 skill to meet that demand. An
i extcn-ive trial of its virtues l>y Physicians, Professors,
and Patients, lias show.n results surpassing anything
hrtherto known of auy medicine. Cures have been ef
fected beyond belief, were they not substantiated by per
sons of such exalted positions and character as to turbid
the suspicion of untruth.
Among the eminent gentlemen who have testified in
favor of these Pills, we may mention :
Poet. A. A. HAYES, Analytical Chemist of Boston,
and State Assayer of Massachusetts, whose high Profes
sional character is endorsed hy the—
H >n. EDWARD EVERETT, Senator of the United
ROBERT C. WIXTHROP, Ex-Speaker of the House of

City, endorsed by-
Ron. \V. L. MARCY, Secretary of State.
WM. B. ASTOIt, the richest man in America.
S. LELA.WA Co., Proprietors of the Metropolitan
Hotel, and others.
Did space permit, we could give many hundred certi
ficates from all parts where the Pills have been 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 best 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 hy < hemieal process in a state of purity, and combin
ed together in such a manner as to insure the be-t results.
This system of composition for medicines has been found
iu Cherry Pectoral and Pills both, to produce a more ef
ficient remedy than had hitherto been obtained by any
process. The reason is perfectly obvious. While by the
old mode of composition ; every medicine is burdened with
more or less of acrimonious and injurious qualities, hy
this each individual virtue only that is desired for the cu
rative effect is present. 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 any 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? hy which both my Pectoral and Pills are
made, to the whole body of Practitioners in the United
states ana British American Provinces. If however there
should be any one who has not received them, they will
be forwarded by mail to his request.
Of all the patent Medicines that are offered, how few
would be taken it their composition was known ! Their
life consists in their mystery. I have no mysteries.
The composition of my preparations is laid open to all
men, and all who are competent to judge on the subject
j freely acknowledge their convictions of their intrinsic
i merits. The Cherry Pectoral was pronounced by scicuti
| lie 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
I are willing to certify that their anticipations w ere more
than realized by their effects upon trial.
They operate by their powerful influence on the inter
