At tliis sonson of the yenr the subject of;
fatii-fiine is of greatest importance. Many of ;
t'ae birds brought to market are very j>o<ir, 1
and a little attention to this matter for a few ;
weeks will increase the profits of the farmer
and the pleasure of the consumer.
It is only when the cold comes, and turkeys
are about six months old, that they should l)e '
fed with better and more pleasant food, in or
der to increase their size and plumpness for,
market. Indian coin, ground barley, wheat,!
also rice and other articles used to fatten com- j
ison fowls, are considered best for turkeys.— !
Their weierht, when well fattened and carried
to market, should average twelve pounds ;
their living and dead weight is as eighteen to
Cobbett says, "As to fattening turkeys,
the best way is never to let them get poor.
Rarley meal mixed with skimmed milk and
given to them fresh, will make them fat in a
short time. Roiled potatoes mixed with Indian
meal will furnish a change of sweet food which ;
they relish much, and of which they should be
allowed to eat as much as they can. As with
others, the food of this bird must be kept clean
and the utmost care taken not to give tlicni
on the morrow the mixture of the preceding
day ; because if the weather is warm, it will |
sour, which might displease tliein.
Much has been published of late in our
agricultural journals in relation to the alimen
tary properties of charcoal. It has been rc
peatidly asserted that domestic fowls may be j
fattened on it without any other food, and that;
too, in a shorter time than on the most nutri
tive grains. " I have recently made an exper- ;
ment,'' says a writer for a Philadelphia paper,
" and been rather skeptical. Four turkeys |
were confined in a pen and fed on meal, boiled j
potatoes and oats. Four others, of the same I
brood, were also at the same time conlin- \
ed in another pen and fed on the same articles, i
but with one pint of very finely pulverized char- :
coal mixed with their food—mixed meal and .
boiled potatoes. They had also a plentiful ;
supply-of broken charcoal in their pen. The :
eight were killed on the same day, and there j
was a difference of one and a half pou* ds each
in favor of the fowls which had been supplied ,
with the charcoal, tlioy being much the fattest
and the meat greatly superior in point of ten
derness and flavor."— Rural Xcie Yorker.
Krmxc CABBAGES TV WINTER. —To pre
serve cabbages through Winter and still have
thetn accessible at all times, select a perfectly
dry spot, and open a trench with the spade or
plow. Take up the cabbages with their roots
attached, inverting thetn as you procied to al
low the water to run out from the heads. Af
ter pulling a quantity and standing them on
their heads until they are thoroughly dry, set
them out thickly in the trench, in their natu
ral position, covering with earth nearly to the
head. Open another trench as near as the
heads will admit of, and set out a second row.
Proceed in this manner until allure used, when
a temporary board shed may lie erected over
the patch, four feet high in front, and sloping
to near the ground in the rear. This should
be sufficiently tight to carry oil' all the water,
but the ends may lie left open for ventilation,
closing with straw only in very cold weather.
Cabbages will keep in this situation until
Spring. If water is prevented from entering
the heads, the freezing will have no injurious
effect. When wanted for use cut off the heads,
and if frozen soak in well or spring water for
a few hours before cooking. This will take
out the frost gradually, and also remove any
Another and very common method is, to
stand them upon the level ground, with the
roots up, and turn a furrow against the row
upon either side. An additional covering is
given by banking up the earth about them
with a spade, until the heads are entirely buri
ed. They keep well in this manner when the
ground is frozen hard.
Another plan which we have pursued with
success, is as follows :—Transplant the cab
bages into close single rows, say 12 fee t long
setting the heads nearly down to the surface
of the ground. At each end of the row drive
a crotched stake, and put a pole a-ross a few
inches above the heads. Lay upon each side
some straight straw, to make a pointed roof over
the heads, and shovel on a thin layer of earth
at first, increasing its thickness as colder weath
er comes on. The frozen eartli can be chopped
away at any point, and the cabbages removed
as desired, closing the opening made with
earth or a bundle of straw. The cabbages
will grow and increase in size all Winter, if an
opening be left at each end for the access of
air, closing it only in case of extreme cold.—
It is necessary that the earth be packed so as
to siied off the rain, as the straw, becoming
wet, will rot aud injure the heads, though it
ought not to be allowed to come in direct con
tact with them. The mice sometimes get in
and destroy the cabbages. If discovered by
their holes, they should be trapped immediate
Still another method we have found to an
swer well, and to require little time. Lay
down two poles or rails upon the ground, two
to four inches apart. Turn their heads down
upon these and cover them with a few inches
of earth, smoothing it off to shed water. On
the approach of very cold weather, put a
large quantity of earth upon that portion of
them desired for Winter use. We have re
moved the snow, cut off the frozen earth with
an old axe, and taken out the cabbages in
fine condition during the coldest season of mid
CLEAN IT THE GARDENS. —You may pride
yourself—as we do—on showing a vegetable
garden where there is not a single growing
weed, but there will be any quantity of vines,
stalks and rubbish from the various useful
plants which will need to be gathered and
piled in an out of the way, and out of the
sight heap, if you would not have an eye-sore
to look out upon during all the Winter. It
takes no more time to do this at the begin
ning than at the end of the Winter, and how
much more neat and cheerful vour garden plot
and yard will appear, if raked entirely clean
and smooth. It will be still better, if as we
have elsewhere advised, the garden soil be
thrown int> uniform trenches, and all the rub
bish buried beneath them. If by chance or
by negligence, any foul weeds have been per
mitted to go to seed, carefully gather and
burn them. One weed stalk left to ripen
on the ground, will add materially to the la
bors of the next and the following years.

sickness mid snfVering might be prevented, if a harmless
; but effectual Cathartic were more freely used. No per
( son can feel well while a costive habit of body prevails :
besides it soon generates serious and often fatal diseases,
j which might have been avoided by the timely and jiuli
. cious nse of a good purgative. This isalike trueofColds,
Feverish symptoms, and Billious derangements. They
! all tend to become or produce the deep seated and for
; midable distempers wliieh load the hearses all oer the
I land. Hence a rcliahle family physic is of the lirst iin
] portanceto the public health, and this Pill has been jier
! fectcd with rftiisiiiiiniatc -kill to meet that demand. An
extensive trial of its virtues by Physicians, Professors,
; and Patients, has shown results surpassing anything
hi therto known of any medicine. Cures have been ef
fected beyond belief, were they not substantiated byper
j 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 Pills, we may mention :
port. A. A. HAVES, Analytical Chemist of Boston,
and State Assayer of Massachusetts, whose high Profes
sional character is endorsed by the—
Hon. EDWAUD EVERETT, Senator of the United
ROBERT C. WIXTHROP, Ex-Speaker of the House of
ABBOTT LAWRENCE. Minister Plen. to England.
tJOHX B. FITZPATRICK, Catholic Bishop of Boston:

City, endorsed by
Hun. W. L. MARCY, Secretary of State.
\VM. B. ASTOR. the richest man in America.
S. KELANI) A 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 by Chemical process in a state of purity, and combin
ed together in such a manner as to insure the best results.
This system of composition for medicines has been found
in 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, by
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 ae
| curate Fonnuhe by 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,
j The composition of my preparations is laid open to all
| men, and all who are competent to judge on the subject
I freely acknowledge their convictions of their intrinsic
I merits. The Cherry Pectoral was pronounced by scienti
-1 lie men to lie a wonderful medicine before its effects were
I known. Many eminent Physicians have declared the
I same thing of my Pills, and even more confidently, and
I are willing to certify that their anticipations were more
I than realized by their effects upon trial,
i They operate by their powerful iutiiience on the inter-
I rial viscera to purify the blood and stimulate it into heal
■ thy action—remove the obstructions of the stomach, bow
l els, liver, and other organs of the body, restoring their
irregular action to health, aud by correcting, wherever
j they exist, such derangements asare the first origin of
