THE EiIiGRA COLLEGE EXCUR-
On the Aoming of the twenty-first of
June, just as the early gray At morning
bad vanished, a party of excursionists
gathered at the Elmira , depot, and al
though it was s&early, every one seemed
• fully awake. At sir oVock we were all
comfortably eeated in ao cars which had
been chartered for the occasion,an?. in a
/few minutes we left Elmira. Them was
much laughing and talking till we reach
pd Canandaigua, where a wholesoine
breakfait awaited us. In twenty minutes
;we re-entered the cars.
. On either side of ,the Northern Central,
"which has miles and miles of ; perfectly
straight road, were ripening fields of
'wheat, and many fine pieces of clover
were to be Seen. But the fields of pota-
Oes and coin were not so fine as those of
j'ennsyivania. And where these were
not growing, there were, instead, flour
ishing vineyards or acres of hop-vines.
All nature,,too, was glad, and we rejoiced
with her. .•
And now We reached Buffalo, where
we went on board the. steamer Pacific,
which afforded:a pleasant home for us
during our trip of two weeks. The steam
er le 't her pier at half-past two o'clock,
and at seven o'clock the next morning we
arrived at Cleveland,- where we spent the
day iti viewing the important parts of the
city; one of the chief attractions being
the renowned Euclid Avenue. About
the • harbor were many liat-hottomed
boats which the little wharf urchins:were
sculling. Occasionally a tug, wish
ing to pass the draw-bridge would whis
tle, and Immediately go by puffing and
panting under its heavy load. At ten
o'clOck we departed under the light of a
full_rmoon and the glittering of the many
lamps which lit up the lOng draw-bridge
just opposite. •
Eight o'clbck the neat morning found
ns at Detroit where we spent a few hours
in which we repeated, for the most part,
the programing of the preceding day, but
tliosc. of us - w
-ho were more fortunate call
ed on our friends. Wei left at halt-past
three, and sailed all that night and the
following day.— The weather was propi
tious and the sail delightful, and as we
were passitig thunder Bay, a thunder
storm greeted us and drove us into
the cabin. Zit evening We stopPed at De
torei z went-to the Chief of the , . Chippe
was' camp, purchased a few trinkets, and
.carried back to the steamer some 'birch
bark which the chietgave us. The next
ilhy we touched.at. Sault St. Marie for a
few hotirs, and Moll. a look at the new
lock which is bcin , ..; : built, and which ex..
hibits line masonry.. In the afternoon
weilloched Linder Lake,: whose waters
are of a reddish line; caused by the wash
y.-.l.ltir from the ciNpper works,! and 'went
into port at Hancock. Heim, we spent
the Sabbath. It was au ex - cefrlingly warm
but we inanit;,•ed to keep cool on the
ripper deck.- Munday.,lW l e took the
cats visited the Calumet Copper
11crlis. Calumet is about :twelve miles
from dianccelc, and is tirielat , Populated.

vent into die tniue;i„but the rest of us
were satisfied.in examiniiig, the machine
rr which almost noiseles:4 performs the
entire work in and about the mines: We
succeeded iii obtaining, line specimens of
the ore. The folloesingmorning we Lidd
ed at 3,larquette. Here we remained
t eyelid boars. We walked about the
town and after buying sittretiirs, and
taking vow on the lake,- we again re
,'turned to the 'steamer which sailed at one
u'elock. This was fitment] of our join--

homeward, On -our return we lauded
Again at the. ports already mentioned t(
unload. freight, and arrived at BulP,►lo i
, time to take the ftvc oclock - train for E

We had been l4ding but a few minutes
when some gentlemen brow ht in a hun
dred boxes of. delicious red raspberries
and a basket of crackers for our lunche
on. We took breakfast at. Rochester and
then returned to the train. And after -a
few hours ride we reached Elmira.
I have poker Of the sight-seeino• but
this was only pint of our pleasure. The
evenings wena 'spetit -in singing. college
- • songs, in liscning to impromptu concerts,
and reading and writing to friends• at
borne. And when sailing out in the lakes
the time was mostly spent in reading, or
having pleasant' talks together.
• • Beformlosing, let me say that the suc
cess of ' the trip and the uninterrupted
Jtappiness of all is due to the etTiciency`of
Captain Cummi: : ;(ls, the watchfulness of

After the flattering experience of the 'past year, having had a very large and extended sale, we
find that-the Tux ItANsost Corr.&Ga Is nniversany conceded to he the most distrable Raiige of Its
class in the market. its general features are the same as in the celebrated Ransom Range, which has
for years been COnsidered the finest Range made. It contains the Patent Expansion Broiling
Chamber, which Is entrees:o/y achnowledgoil to be the only , mccessfal and practical told/Mg attach
ment In use. It is also tarnished with Sznyth's Patent Duplex Grate. This celebrated
Orate is tiztartnely simple In its con-truction. ft has now been in active use for morelicin live years.
and In view of the universally successful experience cf Its operation and durability during that time,
A well as the highly satisfactory results obtained by win our own thorough trhitof Rs quantle-, we have
no hesitation in pronouncing It the male complete and sticcessful arrangement for removing clinkers
and refuse from the tire-box instantancoUsly, thoroughly and cleanly, while the degree of combos - 110n
obtained has never, in our opinion. been equaled with any other style of grate.

Diet for the Sick,..
Ont.a most useful book with the
above title, due. to 11. IL Kane,
we derive a number of useful hints
AS to.thidiet; of • the sick.-- . We have
So . often .repeated in the Household
columns - what important factors; are
the ailmenti given to an invalid; 'and
how; if in proper quantity and-of int..
proved quality, the kitchen helps the
cure more than the apothecary's shop.
Sotrie doctors are ; fortunate enough
to combine with their pharmaceuti
cal lore a 'certain amount of culinary .
aCquainttince. ft were a great pity
that they, many of them, did not ,
know more of the latter.. • A doctor
ntaY say to the wife,. who is all an
xiety in regard to the health of her
.ailing husband, "give the sick man
something . light . and .nourishing."
Now, what (NO the ordinary wife
know about such things T • She could
sing rot her - husband's amusement,
possibly dance for him, but' as to
making him a nourishing broth, or a
gruel even, as well ask her to balance
her Self on a tight rope.
.It is not be=
neath the dignity of the most-learned
Esculapius to unbend at times, and,
the various - methods bow fobd shOuld
be prepared for invalids. Relative
values of food and their digestibilty
a physician shoUld 'have by heart,
aud it is his duty to impart his
knowledge when -it is necessary.
- Now, as to methods of preparing
food .for invalids. Dr. -Kane says : '
"Fried. food of any kind ',should nev
er be, admitted to the sick room
The process renqrs the food very
hard of digestion, - as it comes to us
cased in i darkotitside of browned
Material and tat." A leading author.
ity, Dr. Baird, about' frying as fol--,
lows : "This is a method of cook
ing meat.which has no other recom
mendaticin, than convenience'. It is
a rude - method, adapted for coarse
natures, and dleappears before civili
zation." ; We wish we thought Dr.
Baird was right as to its disappear
tinge. Frying,' like origimq sin, is,
we are .afraid,, everlasting; and not to,,
be stamped out. If meat hasi to be
g iven to an invalid, it must be broil
ed. Even precaution should be used
;as to materials with which the tire is
made. Hot coals often smoke and
flavor the meat disag/eeably. If pos
sible, broil with -wood fire:"... An ex
cellent Method is to take a bit of
meat or chicken and' wrap in a but
tered piece of paper, and thus place
it on the gridiron. -Baking meat is
not as good a - process, though often
resorted to. The tendency of meat
placed in an oven is to evaporate all
those strength-giving juices found in
the flesh. Boiling meat, if attended,
to properly, is not a bail- method - , as
the beef retains a large amount of
nutriment, the fatty portions being
dissolved by the heat. But the troll.
hie about the boiling process is that,
unless great intelligence is used, the
meat is overcooked,. and the nutri
tious elements are found more in the
broth than in the meat. Then again,
- as the appetite] has to be somewhat
stimidated, boiled meats are a trifle
insipid and tasteless. The process
of boiling poultry being shorter than
that'used in cooking beef, the boiled
chicken can be, however„ most ad
vatageously used in the "sick room.
Stewing, when the broth is made
rich in extractive matter, when the
Selection - of the material has been ju
dicious, is excellent food for invalids,'
providing the fats have. been taken
away. In " Diet for the sick," the
remarks in regard to fats shOuld be,
remembered, that as the carbons are
heat producers, when the patient has
inclinations to fevers, they are prone
to give a reoccurance of them. Fats
digest slowly, and in delicate:consti
-tutions may .disorder the stomach.
If a'portion - of the battle offer illness
has been won by the proper selection
and dressing of the food, if it .be
slovenly or carelessly served, it:of
ten does more harm than goo],,
Nothing is more distasteful than to
hand an ill. person a smeary dish or
sloppy cup. The senses are so deli
- cate that often an overcharge of, food,
is revolting to the sight, and deadens'
' the appetite. It is better, then, to'
make tw'o trips between the kitchen.
and the sick-room than to disgust a
patient with an overabundance. There
is no precaution which should not be
taken to make the meal inviting.
Have always a tlean'nvkin ; change
it every time food is partaken of. If
the patient is too weak to use a spoon
or fork himself be careful not to
cram, and remember that the invalid
is not a Strasburg goose penned up
in a cage, and that your sole object'
is to increase the size of his or her
'liver. It is Wise, ethinently wise, to
humor a patient. Never talk tmuch
about what you are going to admin
. ister in the way of food, Just as the
eyes, nose, and ear' .are stimulated
disease t .sw. does 'the imagination
of the patient, become :eccentric.
Sometimes expectations are nisei'
too high; at other periods simply to
mention food is to pal the appetite.
Oftentimes= it is better to produce
.your neatly-covered tray without any
advice of its coming to the patient.
We all of its must know of patients
in (Air own experience who would
rather starve than say that they were,
hungry. This is to be forgiven, as
it is nothing more than)an idiosyn
crasy. Firtimesseis all ,ell enough,
'and / an intelligent invalid may be
coaxed into eating;: b t to , bully
about .food is a miatak , and often
results most unfortunately. . If, with
a lanouid movement of the hand, the
poor sufferer should bid you "be
gone " with hil your nicely prepared
food, take it kindly, put try it again
at some other time. The great thing
is patience, • and always patience.
This is what Miss Nightingale says:
"Many a patient can eat it' you can
only tempt his appetite. Your fault
lies in the fact of you not having got
him the thing that he fancies." But
another patient -does not care for
grapes and turnips; every thing is
equally distasteful to him, Ile
would try to eat anything which
would do him good ; but everything
makes him worse, The fault gener
ally lieS with the cooking. It , 0 not,
his appetite which requires tempting,
it is his diges . tion which requires
sparbig.. A good - cook fOr the sick'
will save the digestion half its work.
There may 'be four causes, any one
of which will produce the same re
sult, viz., the patient Slowly starving
to death from the-want of nutrition
'I. Defect of cooking. 2. Defect in
choice of .diet. 3. Defect in choice
of hours for taking diet. 4. Defect
of - appetite of patient, Yet - all theSe
are .generally , comprehended in one
sweeping assertion that the patient
has "no appetite." Now what are
the remedies? .For the first is to
cook better ;' for the second to select
the diet, for the third to watch care

extracts are, as , a rule _of- absolutely"
no value in the siell-room. In tbe
process, or preparation the greater
part'of the nutriment is left behind,
and most of the salts are preserved.
While acting as occasional flavorers

In fact, they are slightly stimulating,
