Like many others, I tried, n;ain aud
again, to seal fruits without molding upon
the top. I was particular in following
the printed directions in general use. hut
found that my cam, when cold, would
not lx more than two thirds full, and in a
lew days a white mold appeared upon the
top. 1 linally appealed to a friend who,
I knew canned large quantities lor her
own use. She showed me fruit over a
year old, quite fresh, the cans full, and
no mold. I at once adopted her plan
which I have since followed witli great
success. I have no interest in the man
ufacture of cans, and believe that every
one should do his own advertising, but I
prefer that kind iu which you have only
the can, glass cover and rubber to use.
Fruit can be kept just as well without,
as with, sugar ; and those sealed up lor
pies arc better without any, as they will
retain their flavor far better, llrass ket
tles should never be used. Tin pans or
kettles lined with porcelain, so as to pre
serve the most perfect, flavor of the fruit,
are the best. While my fruit is being
.scu'.ded, I put a gill ot cold water
in ach can, and fill up with hot water,
putting the covers and rubber also into
hot water. The fruit need not be cooked
only heated to the boiling point un
less in preparing pears or quinces, or
Home other hard fruits that may require
more cooking, and then only just so that
a straw may he passed through, always
being careful to have juice enough to
cover the fruit. As soon as boiling hot,
empty the water from a can and fill; then
another, or as many as can well be at
tended to. Let the cans stand open un
til you can comfortably bear the hands
upon them. Meanwhile more fruit may
Cut thick writing paper in round
pieces the size of tho t p of each can,

for the purpose), and put on the covers

When cold, if the jar is air tight, the

you must seal it again. Those who can

greatly improved by first draining off all

History of the Mercer Potato.
In the year 1802, Mr. John Kilkey of
Mercer county, l'ennfeylyania, living along
Neshnock creek, planted a quantity of
blue, red, white and other varieties of
potatoes, from the product of which he
selected the above named variety, which
at first were called Neshanocks, after the
creek near which he lived. They were
Boon after brought into notice by the
name of Mercer and cultivated near I'll il
adolphia. From thence spread over tho
whole country, and for a long time, more
generally cultivated than other varieties,
but -of late years has been rather on the
decline, and other now varieties have been
introduced, but none of which has at
tained the celebrity of the Mercer, which
was almost universally planted for nearly
half a century, owing to its superior ed
ible qualities and productiveness. It may
q a long time before any one variety of
this valuable esculent to man will attain
the prominence of the noble Mercer,
which although having had ita day, is
still the favorite with a large number of
Do fowlH like Peppers.
A gentleman who recently spent some
time in Spanish Honduras, whero capsi
cum or the red pepper grows as a peren
nial, forming quite high bushes, says
that he often saw from the window tho
ordinary barnyard fowls fly up into the
growiug pepper plants and strip them of
loliage and seed pods, eating them with
avidity. The fowl there 'seemed exceed
ingly 'healthy and prolific layers. Is it
not probable that more capsicum fed to
our chickens would be to their benefit.
JftgyCttACKED Disiiks. There is
troublcol'ten attendant upon badly cracked
dishes ; such dishes absorb oils or fats
from the different kinds of food placod
iipnn lliem. These fats soon decompose
in the pores of the dish, and no amount
of cleansing can remove the nauseating
and poisonous deposit. Such dishes arc
filthy and unfit for use. The peculiarly
unpleasant taste sometimes noticed in pie
crust is caused by the pics being baked
upon old, cracked dishes, from which the
rancid fat from previous baking has been

The Anterior absorbs. Interior consists of
tissues or veins, which serve ns a deposit for
the urine and convey it to the Exterior. Tho
Exterior Is it conductor also, terniinnting in a
single tube, and called the Ureter. The Ureters
arc connected with the bladder.
The bladder is composed of various cover

Upper, the Lower, the Nervous, and the Mucous.
The upper expels, tho lower retains. Many
li live a desire to urinate without the ability;
others urinate without the nbllity to retain.
This frequently occurs in children.
To cure these ntl'eetinns, we must bring Into

II. T. IIei.mooi.I), Druggist :
Dkaii Sih I have been a sufferer, for upward
of twenty jears, with gravel, bladder, and kid
ney affections, during which time I have used
various medicinal preparations, and been under
the treatment of the most eminent Physicians,
experiencing but little relief.
Having seen your preparations extensively
adveitised, I consulted with my family physi
cian in regard to using your I'.xtrai t liuchii.
I did this because I had used all kinds of ad
vertised remedies, and had found them worth
less, and, some quite injurious ; in fact, I de
spaired of ever getting well, and determined t
use no remedies hereafter unless I knew of the
ingredients. It was this that prom) ted me to
use your remedy. As you advertised that it
was composed of buchu, cubehs, and juniper
berries, it occurred to me and my physician as
an excellent combination, and, w ith his advice,
nflcr an cxamini tion of the article, and con
sulting again with the druggist, I concluded to
try it. I commenced its use about eight months
ago, at which time I was confined to my room.
From the first bottle I was astonifhed and grat
ified ut the beneficial ell'ect, and after using it
three weeks, was able to walk out. I felt much
like writing you a full statement of my case at
the time, but thought my improvement might
only be temporary , and therefore concluded to
defer and sec if it would etlect a perfect cure,
knowing then it would be of more value to you,
and more satisfactory to me.
I am now able to report that u cure Is cflcct
ed after using the remedy for live months.
I have not used any now for three months,
and feel ns well in all respects as I ever did.
Your liueliu being devoid of any unpleasant
taste and odor, a nice tonic and invigorator of
the system, I do not mean to be w itliout it
whenever occasion may require its use in such
