The Kitchen' Garden.
EverYbody knows the farmer )who
never has a kitchen garden. He may
be a good farmer, his cattle may al
ways be l in ftne order,-hb fences may,
be trinrand neat, but if he- has no
kitchen, he -is rtsnally a man who
do ` trot largely enjoy life. H ow o
many men there are. who, with
tle care, might have all the luxuries
that others have. They =are willing
to pull a few ears of field corn for
summer'use, when a little trouble in
the spring would give them and their
children nice, white, milky green;
corn, every day for many, weeks..
Thereare farmers who put in a few
tomato plants to please their wives,
and for lack of cultivating get only
a few green rruit, which they put on
the shed to ripen, and which soon
rot. There,are farmers' children
who never taste lettuce, when a little
work in the spring would furnish
them with a good supply. Such men
arc content with pork - and potatoei
ak the year round, and it isno won
efer that their children gro* up to
dislike farming and its surroundings.
Make the life on the farm cheerful
and pleasant, and your children will
remember it. Once in a while one
of the gardenless fanners experi
ments with some new kind of seed ;
he fails to watch it ;he gets back on
ly a few stunted vegetables, not
enough to g o around ; he rotes the
thing a failre,, not worth . the trou
ble ; and he never tries the experi
ment - again. The kitchen garden
Ehould be:the farmers' paradise. It
should be as cheerful as the German's
beer garden. To be sure, there must
be labor. The garden is not a field,
and its soil must be 'cultivated to a
thorough degree of fineness. Lumps
are entirely out of place. The fer
tilizers must be mingled thoroughly
with the soil. The same soil will not
do for all kinds of vegetables. The
finest bed of cucumbers we ever saw
,rag eri the cool side of a barn where
a pig; pen had formerly been. In the
s.2m,_soll limas did not grow. Ex
perience and reading will teach the
secrets of kitchengardenin - g,„. First
determine to have the gatdeli. De
termine that. your life shall not be
barren of the good , things that na
ture almost thrusts upon you. We
know. farmers' children who never
knew the taste of asparagus, one of
the most delightful of vegetables;
yet it, is a perennial, and once plant
ed will 'L
-,- .row year after year with
_proper vulture. Begin -this' season ,
•• ,- .-ith a purpose of having a kitchen
gArden t .and you and your children
shall be -happy. ••

this fact occupy themselves in rais

i; unfavorable for the rearing of these
tendereze.atures artificial mothers
must be employed. Natural meth ods fail at this season. Eggs can be
batched, it is true, but artifiCial
„warmth is needed for the chicks; An

an artificial Mother, in a room heated
by a store: We, saw young chickeni
raised in a warm room in January of

First, care should. be taken that the
meat berlihi: punctured or, broken,
certainly not bruised or pounded, as
a good, judiciously _chosen steak is
:always tender without, that, English
cooks are so particular on that point
that they never allow a fork to be
used, but have steak tongs for turn-
Now that we have those-nice
hroilers of galvanized wire, thatshut
like the-cover of a book, the steak
lean be easily turned, without the use
of other utensils. The strike should
be placed over a clear, :bright -fire;
- not too hot, and frequently turned,
in order to cook it evenly 'and thor
. oughlyl but it should not be over
cooked, as -much is lost in flavor. No
salt should be-put upon the steak
while on the fire, but the moment it
is withdrawn it should be placed up- -
on a hot dish,..tlien butter and- salt
isn both sides, pressing. a little with
thi point of the knife as you do so,
and you will have a delicious, juicy
steak i xith . little if any waste.

D. Bkr mom : In your issue of March
15, I saw an article purporting to be an
answer to an article eastitled "Bull
dozing a Teacher," which appeared
in your issue of Feb. 22, and believing'
that I lrnow as much about the subject as
any one, and that it is my duty to make
it clear, and will try to do so in the fol,
lowing, having been the teacher myself. -
The writer of article second says "the
boy Ins not LW." It seems to rue if a
'boy that is sixteen years of age, tough
and healthy, cannot get slang _without
lying down in school hours, (which was
the cause of the - trouble) he might be
He says "the boy stood at the head of
his classes; this is not so, he being an in
dolent, indifferent boy in school. He says
he was a studious, hard-working boy;
this statement is oornvt, if rightly inter
preted. My Interpretation is that be
worked harder to annoy me than he did
to get his lemma, and for this reason he
did not stand at the head of his classes.
The above writer says i ` the tint inti
mation that the boy had that there was
anything amiss in him was a crack over
the head and face with a whip.' This is
not so. The boy was not struck .over the'
head, but on his shoulders, be having
been spoken to repeatedly foaloungt.n in
school hours, he being too importan t to
sit up and keep his mouth shat and go to
studying, rises to his feet, at the samt`
time taking a slate from his desk sad
holding it in readiness to strike me, wad
telling me to "hold on," - and that be
would not keep still. I then told - bim if
he could not obey the rules of the school,
that I would suspend him, which las
did, (not esperled, as they
would have it), he telling me before he
left that I would have that to pay for.
The above author says the boy did not
summon the "august body;" a good rea
son for that, be did not find the director
at home, as he. expected, but the father of
the boy saw the director the same day,
and he was duly notified, be (the director)
notifying the rest of the board. Accord
ingly a meeting was appointed and held
at the. echeol-house in presence of the
school (and that, too, without notifying
me and giving me a chance for defense.
Ile says "they did their work satisfactori-
1y to the neighborhood." It might have
pleased the friends of the family, but it
would have .pleased them better if they
could have turned me out, as
ened to no ;
He also says that "the teacher made a
voluntary Acknowledgment;" this Li not
so, nor is it reasonable that I would do
any such thing, so long- as I was in the
right. He again says the - boy's cousins
continued to go there. Certainly 'none
except his sister by the same name came
after the meeting of the directors.
You may judge of the behavior of the
boy at school by the threats he made out
side (told to the by gool authority) that
"he would whip the teacher;" be also
told me that "he would lick • a certain
person whom he believed to be the author
of Bulldozing a Teacher." ,
The writer of article second says he
-speaks from " what he knows," and not
from "hearsay."_ If this be so, he is not
acquainted with the truth. ", It seems to
me that it would have . been better for
him if he bad keiff:his nose out and let
the story of a "disinterested eye-witness"
alone, which was true in all the important
points, much more than his.
EDITOR EDUCATIONAL DEPARTRZNT—Z
Dear Sir: A, B and C start from the
same point to travel around a lake 84
miles in ciriumferenee - A travels 7 miles
and B 21 miles per day in the same direc
tion, and C 21 miles per day in an oppo
site direction. In how many days will
they all meet for the first time 1 ,
The following is my solution :
12, the number of days it would take A
to make a revolution; 844-21=4, the num •
ber of days it would take B to make a
revolution; 844-21:-A the number of
days it will take C to-..",make a revolution.
Since B and C travel:the same distance
per day, and travel• in opposite directions,
and as it requires them only 4 days to
make a revolution, it is evident that they
will meet every other day at or directly
opposite the starting point. We can see
at once that B and C both could not pos
sibly meet A on their first revolution, and
since it has taken B and C each four days
to make their first revolution, A ,bas
traveled 4x7, . or 28 miles. Sifice A has
28 miles the start of B, on his second rev
olution, it will take B as many days to
overtake A as the difference between the
number of miles triveledlY4 and ,B in
one day s is contained tittles in 28 niiles,
the-number of miles to be gained, which
B A dif
is days 21— 7 =l4; 28-i- 14-. days,
which will be directly opposite the start
ing' point, where they will be met by C,
Therefore, it would be 4d+241-3d to
travel by A=42 7 days' travel by B or
In addition to this I will give a rule to
find the first time of meeting_io any ex
ample of this kind when the two travel
ing in ,the same 'direction travel in the
ratio of 3to 1, and the one traveling in
the 'opposite r 'direction - tnivels as fast as,
the one traiels•the fsitest in the same di
iection. Rutz : Firat - find how long it
will take each to make a revolution, and
find the leaist common multiple of the
numbers thus obtained and divide by 2.

EDITOR EVCCATIONAL DEZAATXZNT :
Please find a solution to the following ex
ample, page 839, example 63, Robinson's
Practical Arithmetic. A owed B $9OO,
to be paid in 3 years, but at the expira
tion of 9 months, A agreed to pay $3OO,
if B would wait long enough for the ba
lance to compenitate for the advance.
How long sboald B *sit after the expira
tion of the 3 years ?
I wunt we might awaken an interest
sufficient to induce people to Itistit schools

iIANNAii, being a blacksmith by trade, had
often felt the want of some means whereby I could
soften Iron at the forge. so that I could work It at
a better advabtate: this Idduced me to make Mauy
experiments-with different substances which offered
the best prospects of success. It was on - 4ne of
these occasions that I discovered
THE WONDERFUL EFFECTgOF ELECTRO
SILICON UPON fIIE HLM4N SYSTEM,
I had ae.feci in three of my fingers, which were
bent or-shut up in my hand in such a manner by
•tho contraction Of the cords, that they were very
troublesome to me in my daily avocation. I could
not handle my tools as I wished, and often
!kight` that I would have therri cut off to get them
eupof utt way.' I had used everything that offered
any ppope of relief ; but alkto no effect. Weil, I say;
I wi working with EleetroSil:cuu at the surge,
and of course could not prevent Its coning In con
tact with my hands.
I took no notice de the effect It )64 produced.
until one day wishing ,to use a heavy hammer,
grasped it with my crooked hand, and much to my
surprise I found my crooked lingers straighten,
out, and I bad as meta use of them as ever. •T
could hardly believe my.eyes. I showed my hand to.

The questlan now was, What had produied this
wonderful effect ? Every act was recalled, an - d after
a long and careful Investigation. 1 at last up
my mind that my good 'fortune had been caused by,
E LEC TRO SIL 1C0N...
My nest step was to discover some means by
which I could combine this wonderful substance so
that everybody could use it. 1 made diligent search
through every book that I thought would throw any
light upon the subJect f and at last.. In a very old
medical book, I found a way by which I could do it.
The result was perfectly satisfactory,, and I was
able to make a Liniment, the like the world has
never seen - before. Ili,now began to look about me
for cases to,try the effect of It on•others,-
I bad a neighoor living about a mile from my
shop who had a lame knee, caused by the cords lx
tng contracted by rheumatism. I sent him a bottle
of ELECTRO SILICON LINIMENT, and told
him to use It thoroughly, He did so, and at the end
of three months he was-able to throw aside his cane
and walk , to my shop apparently as well as ever. It
bad worked just as it did in my case—
