Eigivt Reasons for Planting an Orchard.
L Dr. Dwiglst used to remark to his pupils
&fc Yule, tLat the raising ot fruit was tte
cheapest and pleasantest way of entertaining
friends. We are creatures of society, and it is
a very important object to make the social
board attractive to all who honor us with their
friendships. A- dish of well grown aipics is
always wholesome and acceptable.
2. An orchard is always an ornament to
the farm, beautiful blossoms, its summer dra
pery of greeu, and its autumn burden of yti
low and ruby fruit. No farm is complete
without it acres of orchard.
3. The cultivation of fruit is a very pleas
act occupation, and lias an important influ
ence upon the mind and heart of the cultiva
tor. It requires higher intelligence than the
growing of the aninal crops, it fosters fore
cast and hopefulness, and "tends to a cheerful
4. It makes homo attractive —children crc
universally fond of fruit, and the home where
4kii luxury is always enjoyed, will be more
loved on that account, ft will ba in pleas
mat contrast with many homes arouuci him.
a. It will tond to guard children against
▼ico and crime. So strong is the doe ire for
droit, that they may Etea! it if it be not pro
vided for them at home. And the bev that
grows np plundering his neighbor's fruit yard
and Orchard, is very likely to steal mora valu
able things wheu La becomes a man.
0. It is a very sure investment. An apple
tree, if well plunted, is about as hardy as an
oak, and sure to bear fruit according to the
labor bestowed upon it. When houses burn
up, ar.d banks fail, and rail read stocks de
preciate, the orchard will yield dividends.
7. It is not only a sure investment for your
self, but for your children. No real estate in
their inheritance is likaiy to be so permanent
ly valuable. An orchard iu good soil will bear
fruit for a hundred years.
8. It is a perpetual incitement to thanks
giving to a bountiful Creator. It yields its
burden of precious fruit yearly, giving large
returns for the labors of the husbandman, and
calling bia to behold the wisdom ard good
ness of Providence. Do not fail to plant that
long deferred orchard, and while you arc at it,
select good ma;ktable fruit. The best is the
BREAKING COLTS.—A correspondent ef the
Country Gentleman gives his method for im
parting an edueatiou to colts, as follows :
In lint Cist place, never intrust him to the
care of a persou of ungovernable temper.
Secondly, he should ba treated with kind
ness from the beginning until ha is ready for
Since Mr. Kerry laid his method of subdu
ing the horse before the public, I hare made
the horse and his disease my study.
The coit should be commenced with when
quite young, and handled carefully, as he is
quick to resent an injury. I begin as soon as
he is able to run about—get him so that he
will not run away at your approach—get Lis
head in your har.us—if he wants to get away,
lot him—you can easily get him again. After
handling the head so that he is not afraid,pass
PQ the side and limbs. The sooner ho gets
used to having his legs handled, the easier he
will be to shoe when necessity requires it to
be done. Sec that tlie dam girts plenty cf
milk. Ifsho docs not, teach the colt to drink
cow's tni.k; there is nothing better to promote
Great care should be observed in not using
the dam so as to heat thj tr.iik, as a great
many colts are rendered worthless by EO doing.
1 should in no case let the colt remain with the
mother after it is five months old. as it gives
her time to get in good condition for winter,
and it is also the Lest time for him to shift for
himself; do not let him rernaiu out after the
nights get .cold and frosty, a it will do him
no good, but much harm. There is a plenty of
skimmed miik at that time of the year, give
hioi all. he will drink ; it will uot "hurt him.
After he is waned is the tiaic to commence
halter breaking him.
BLOAT IN CATTLE. —IT. D. Court, of Bedford
writes to the Michigan Farmer, that when
cattle are bloated from eating wet clover, or
horses from eating green clover, he has found
a sure remedy in giving to the animals an or
dinary charge of gunpowder, mixed with about
tha same quantity cf fine salt in the hand,and
thrown on the tongue every 15 minutes, until
two or three doses are given. lie says :
" In the summer of 1858,1 had live head taken
at the same time, two of which were severe
cases, but this treatment saved them. The
same week tiie hides of forty head wero sent
into Battle Creek, and all from animals that
had been lost by early wet clover."
MABKCWFAT DEANS —From observation—
jays a writer—l am forcibly impressed that
there ore but ftw fanners who realize the
worth of marrowfat beans, compared with
others Ibat are geseraiiy raised. Some far
mers think that if they plant few beans they
must occupy some odd corner, or some poor
spoi of grouud.
My advice would be to procure the marrow,
as they will yield on pood ground fioin one
third to double more than I have tried. I will
give my experience : Three yours ago I plow
ed and planted, from the 13th to the loth of
June, eighty feet square in drills about thirty
three inches apart and sixteen inches in the
row, on land suitable to raise good corn; and
1 harvested six bushels of good beans. I
would roeommend planting as early as corn,
because it give better weather to harvest them
generally, which is very essential to keep them
in good merchantable order.
ROASTlNG.— Roasting meat, in an oven, is
next to broiling, and generally preferable in
the hands of a carelss®, cr slow, or inexperi
cnced cook. But a piece of meat to be roast
ed well, should be put into an oven already
hot, so as to scar the surface, in order to re
tain the juices. The heat should aUerwnrds
be kept as high as possible without actual
charring or burning the meat. The higher the
heat, and the more rapid the cooking, the
tenderer will be the meat. A long slow roast
ing, is uaxt door to " tanning."
HEAVES. —The Farmer and Gardener give 3
the following as a cure for the heaves in horses:
lake smart-weed, 6teep it in boiling water
till the strength is all out; give one quart
every day, mixed with bran orshorts, for eight
or ten days. Hive green or cut feed, wet with
water, during the operation, and it will cure."

and indeed the whole class of complaints arising from
IMPURITY OF THE BI.OOD. 1
This compound will be found a great promoter of
health, when taken in the spring, to expei the foui hu
mors wnich fester in the blooo at that season of the year.
By the timely expulsion of them many rankling disor
ders are nipped in tiie bud. Multitudes can, by the aid
of this remedy, sjiare themselves from the endurance ol
eruptions and ulcerous sores, through which the system
will strive to rid itself of corruptions, if not assisted to
uo this through the natural channels of the body hy an
alterative med'cine. Cicaiife out the vitiated blood
whenever you find its impurities bursting through the
skin in pimples, eruption*, or sores ; cleanse it when you
find it is obstructed and sluggish in the veins ; cleanse it
whenever it is foul, and your feelings will tell you when.
Even where no particular disorder is felt people enjoy
better health, and live longer, for cleansing the blood.
Keep the blood healthy, and all is well ; hot with this
pabulum of life disordered, there can te no lasting health.
Sooner or later something roust go wrong, and the gteu
r machinery of life is disordered or overthrown.
Sarsaparilla has, and deserves much, the reputation of
accomplishing these ends. Rut the world has lieen egre
gioiisly deceived by preparations of it, partly liecause
the drug alone has not all .he virtne that is claimed for
it. but more because many preparations, pretending to
be concentrated extracts of it, contain but little of the
virtue of Sarsaparilla. or anything else.
During late years the public have been misled by large
bottles, pretending to give a quart of Extract of Snrsa
' parilla lor one culler. Most of these have been frauds
upon the sick, lor they not only contain little, if any
Sarsaparilla, hut often no curative properties whatever.
Heuce, bitter and painful disappointment has loilowed
the use of tiie various extracts of Sarsaparilla which
fiood the market, until the name itself is justly de
spised, and lias become synonymous with imposition and
cheat. Still we call this compound Ssrsapanlia, and in
tend to supply such a remedy as shall rescue the name
from the load of obloquy vrhi'dh rests upon it. And we
think wc have ground tor believing it has virtues which
are irresistible by the ordinary tun of the diseases it is
intended to cure. In order to secure their complete
eradication trom the system, the remedy should be judi-
I ciously taken according to directions on the bottle.
