Refreshing the Memory.
MESSRS. EDITORS :—I once knew a man,
whose wife was rather feeble, am! whou the
good woman's health was inquired after, his
reply was, that' she enj't/ed rather p or health.'
Now I am of the opinion that it.auy " enjoy
the same blessing," in regard to their memo
ries. Their retentive powers seem to be do
fective ; so much so, that it would be d fli ult
for them to give au inu Ihgible account of whal
tbey had read, au hour alter the reading.--
Whether this arises from some defect in their
" making up," or from inattention, 1 shall not
pretend to say—parhaps it arises in part from
But these difficult ones should not be over
looked I therefore propose to repeat a few
of the many things worth remembering, that
have appeared from time to time in the Conn
try Gtnllemeev, for their benefit, hoping " that
line upon line," will have tl.e desired effect.
1. Remember to treat ail animals that ure
dependent upon you for their comfort, during
the cold mouths, with humanity. See that
they are warmly housed, and have a full sup
ply of nutritious food. Feed roots and meal.
See that they do not lose flesh the fore part of
winter. Increase the good things to milch
oows, towards spring just before calving time.
Don't begin and end with straw and corn outs
2. Remember to keep your stock clean from
filth by carding, and by giving ihem a clean
bed of straw to lie upon. Don't attempt to
promote thrift and growth, by applying manure
to their hides It is far better to make the
application to the soil, and thus increase the
yie'd of hay, roots and grain. These, fed to
them with a liberal hand—though a more
roundabout way—will be far more efficacious.
3. Remember to clean out your eattlcs'man
gers once a day. Less fodder will be wasted,
and they will relish their fodder much better.
Give them enough, but only so much as ihey
will eat up cleau at each foddering, if the fod
der is good. Cattle will reject their food, af
ter baviug breathed over it awile. And fur
ther, clean up the scatterings made by fod
dering, that nothing be lost. Some men have
got rich by saving.
4. Remember that pure water—not mnd
pnddlc—and plenty of it, is essential to the
health aad thrift of all animals. Don't re
quire your cattle to go a mile through the snow
with the thermometer at or below zero, and
then, upon tbeir knees drink, from some dirty
slough, through a hole cut in the ice aod mud.
5. Remember to keep the manure snugly
piled, and mix plenty of absorbents with it—
straw, saw-dust, muck or turf are good—to
hold the liquid. If your manure heap has not
the same defect that your memory has—leaky
—you need give yourself no uneasiness about
cellars or sheds to stow it in, as with a good
supply of straw or other material to take up
the liquid, the rain or snow that falls opou it
will do it no damage, but will forward its
fitness for the land
6. Remember to house all farm tools. Those
not in daily use should lie thoroughly cleaned
before putting away. If any are out cf repair
put them in order. Don't winter the plow in
the corner of the fence, the horse-rake jiu the
middle of the meadow, or the mower iu the
door yard. This will be worse for their con
stitution than a summer's work. All tools in
daily nse, should be cleaned after using—sho-
vels and dung-forks should not be allowed to
become coated with frozen and dried manure.
They are much more comfortable to use, when
kept clean, besides they will last much longer.)
7. Remember to daw up to the door, saw
split and pile up under cover, a year's stock
of wood, duriDg the winter. It is bad econo
my to burn green wood ; beside it is violation
of the connubial vow, to " require " my dear"
to cook the dinner with green soggy wood.—
Any woman so treated ought to apply for a
bill of divorce, and if the court should refuse
the petition, she ought to then secede—peaco
ably, if she can—but secede at any rate.
8. Remember to do everything well that you
undertake. Adopt the rule, that anything
that is worth doing, is worth doing well.
9. Remember to be neat uud systematic
about all yonr work—particularly in doing
chores. Chores are quite an item in the win
ter, and they can be dune much more expedi
tiously, where there is system iu doing them,
than wheu done at haphazard
10. It is passing strange that so many
should entertain the opinion, that uothing can
be learned in regard to fariniug. Every far
mer should take some good, practical journal,
that he may avail himself of the experience aud
practice of others.
11. Remember that a great war is upon us
and that half a million or more of the brave
defenders of the Union must be fed aud cloth
ed. Therefore, it becomes the duty as it is
to the interest of every tiller of the soil to put
forth renewed exertions —to add a few more
acres to the growiug crops—to till the soil
with greater diligence aud care, and thus in
crease its productiveness, that the wants of
our soldiers, aud the expense of this unrighte
ous war, waged by traitors aud thieves against
our government, may be met. And that we
may have bread enough aud some to spare, to
our amiable cousins across the water.—J. L.
11. in Country Cent.
SAVE THE GOOD TIMBER. —II. T. 15., in the
.Rural New Yorker , says that his father, " a
thoughtful, prudent Connecticut Yankee," of
ten said to him, " jiick out some good trees,
have them sawed or split into proper shape,
and whenever you break it tongue, an exeltree,
or a sjxike, take aloug to the shop your own
timber that you know is right, and be sure
that they put it iuto your job." It is a capi
tal good plau to save all the good limber, for
it is none too plenty at the best. And with
the material on hand, a farm shop, and a lit
tle skill, you need not go to the mechanic for
a new bolster, tongue,reach or almost any part
of a broken implement.
A HINT. —The shoots of potatoes exposed
to light contain solauum—a powerful poison.
The tubes of potatoes which are covered with
earth from the light never contain this poison,
% but if exposed when growing they become
green on the skin, which is a sign the poison
has been developed in them. On no account
should these green potatoes he eaten by per
sons or animals.
A lady who had been troubled some
time with a felon on her finger, gives a simple
remedy from which she experienced great re
lief, and which enabled her to sleep for the
first time in mauy nights. It was to cut a hole
in a lemon, and wear it on the linger like a
thjrable--the felon encased in the fruit. It is
said to give immediate relief.

" To be, or not to be— hat is the question 1
Whether 'tis nobler in the mind to suffer
The slings and arrows of outrageous opposition,
Or by taking up arms against a sea of printing ink,
And opposing, end them."
THE proprietor of the Argus takes occasion in adver
tising his Bindery to indulge in an uncalled for fling
I about a " sort of a concern," which is hoping " to delude
j the public." As I have opened a Bindery on my own ac
count, the inference is that if the public bring their
i binding to me, they are in no danger of being defrauded.
I For two years I have worked for Mr. PARSONS, and he
has taken great pains t satisfy the public I was the " best
Binder in America," as the columns of the Argus wil
I testify. Has he been all that time " deluding the pub
l lie '/" If I have been engaged in a fraud, lie has been tli
principal. But I refer to my work during that time a
j evidence that there has been no fraud practiced.
: Having served a long apprenticeship at the Bindery
i easiness, 1 have resumed business here on my own ac
count, as I know ot nothing which prevents me from fol
lowing a legitimate aud bawtul calling for my support.

ness to give public satisfaction.
