FAEII AITD HOUSEHOLD ITEMS
We inrie communications from allpersnnsirhoare
tnU.re.fted in matters properly belonging to this
Oiling Funu Implements.
Every man should Lave a can of linseed
oil end a brush on hand, and whenever
he buys a new tool he should soak it well
with the oil and dry it by the ro or in
the sun before, using. The wood by this
treatment is toughened and strengthened
and rendered impervious to water. Wet
a new hay rake, and when it dries it will
begin to Le loose in the joints; but if
well oiled, the wet will have but slight
effect. Shovels and forks arc preserved
from chocking and cracking in the top of
the haudlo by oiling; the wood becomes
smooth as glass by use, and far less liable
to blister the hand when long used.
Axe and hammer handles often break off
where she wood enters the iron ; this dart
particularly should bo toughened with oil
to secure durability. Oiling in the eye
of the axe will prevent it swelling and
shrinking, and sometimes getting loose.
The tools on a largo farm cost a large sum
of money ; they should be of the most ap
proved kinds. It is a poor economy, at
the present extravigant prices for labor
to set men at work with ordinary, old
fashioned implements. Laborers should
bo required to return their tools to the
convenient places provided for them;
after using, they should bo put away
clean and bright. The mould-boards of
plows are apt to get rusty from one season
to another, even if sheltered ; they should
be brushed over with a few drops of oil
when put away, and they will then remain
in good order till wanted.
nogs and Rattlesnakes.
The Columbus (Ohio) News says that
a farmer near there, recently, in walking
about his place, discovered a nest of rat
tlesnakes in an old log about which sev
eral large pieces of rock lay scattered.
lie had heard that hogs were death on
snakes of all sorts, and not caring to at
tack the nest himself, ho thought he
would try the experiment and see a fight.
He drove several hogs in the: vicinity of
the nest, and watched the result. The
hogs soon seemed to scent the snakes,
and commenced rooting eagerly about the
spot. In an instant half a dozen of the
serpcnt3 emerged from their hiding-places
to attack tho intruders, who mani
fested a zealous disposition to go in. A
snake would rear himself to the height of
the back of a hog, shako his rattles, and
fduugo his fangs into the animal with
ightning-likc celerity, and then dart
away pursued by the grunter, who dex
trously received tho sting upon the fleshy
part of the jaw. Time and' again this
would be repeated, until tho hog got his
fore-foot upon tho snake, when he would
deliberately rip tho Bnakc in twain, and
then devour him. This slaughter con
tinued until all the snakes were disposed
of, when the hogs grunted contentedly,
and without any signs of being disturbed
waddled off in 6earch of 'other proven
der. Tho eye-witness to this singular
contest, which was not without its excit
ing features, declares himself convinced
that a pig is impervious to the poisonous
bito of any kind of serpent. .
Care of Horses' Legs.
Few men who haudlc horses give prop
er attention to tho feet and legs. Espec
ially is this the case on tho farms. Much
time is spent of a morning rubbing, brush
ing and smoothing the hair on the' sides
and hips, but at no time are tho feet ex
amined and properly cared for. Now,
be it known, that in this six thousand
year old world of ours, the feet of horses
need more caro than the body. They
need ten times as much for in ono re
spect they are almost tho cntiro horses.
All tho grooming that can bo douo
won't avail anything, if tho horse is forced
to stand whero his feet will bo filthy.
In this caso the, feet will become disor
dered, and then the legs will get badly
out of fix, and with bad feet and bad legs
thero is not much clso of tho horso fit
for anything. Stablo prisons Generally
aro terribly severe on tho feet and legs
of horses, and unless the buildings can
afford a dry room, whero a horse can walk
around, lio down or roll over, they arc
not halt so healthy and comfortable to
tho horse as tho pasture, and should bo
avoided by all good hostlers in the coun
try. 12 ural World.
Dronght la New Euglaud. '
The Crops in New England aro suffer
ing terribly from drought, and the farm
ers of that region consider 1870 as a
hard year. Light showers have visited
most localities, but since May, no soaking
rain has fallen anywhere. The intense
and protracted heat, it is stated, has
parched the ground to tho depth of three
lect, Las destroyed the pasturage, and
rolled up the leaves of corn. A good rye
crop has been gathered, but the Indian
corn will be light. Hay is twenty-five
per cent, below the average yield, and
the oats crop is equally deficient. .The
tobacco crop of the Connecticut Valley is
reported to be looking well; but that
planted last and insufficiently manured
will turn out to be a failure, unless rain
speedily falls. Potatoes were extensive
ly planted, but the crop will not exceed
two-thirds of tho average yield.
Cure for Felon.
Tho London Lancet says there is noth
ing like the following for tho cure of
felon : " As soon as tho pulsation which
indicates tho disease, is felt put directly
over the spot a fly blister about the size
of your thumb nail, and let it rcmaiu for
six hours, at the expiration of which time
directly under tho surface of the blister
may be seen tho felon, which can instant
ly bo taken out with the point of a nce
dlo or lancet."

riHE Kidneys ire two in number, situated at
X the upper part of the loin, surrounded by
fat, and consisting of three parts, viz i the An
terior, tho Interior and the Kxtcrior.
The Anterior absorbs. Interior consists or
tissues or veins, which serve as a deposit for
the urine and convey it to the Exterior. Tho
Exterior is a conductor also, terminating in a
single tube, and called the Ureter. The Ureters
arc connected with tho bladder.
Tho bladder is composed of various covcr-
ings or tissues, divided into parts, viz. : the
L ppcr, the Lower, the Nervous, and the mucous.
The upper expels, tho lower retains. Many
have a desire to urinato without the ability;
others urinate without tho ability to retain.

To cure these affections, wo must bring into
action the muscles, which aro engaged in their
various fuuetious. If they are neglected, Gravel
or Dropsy may ensue.
The render must also bo mado nwarc, that
however slight may be the attack, it is sure t
affect the bodily health and mental powers, as
our flesh and blood are supported from these
Goct, on Rheumatism. Pain occurring in
the loins arc indicative of the above diseases.
They occur in persons disposed to acid stomach
and chalky concretions.

Dropsy is a collection ofwater in some parti
of the body, and bears different names, accord

Treatment. Ilclmbold's highly conccntra
cd compound Extract Buchu is" decidedly one
of the best remedies for diseases of the blad
der, kidneys, bladder, dropsical swellings,
rheumatism and gouty affections. Under this
head wo have arranged Dysuria, or difficulty
and pain in passing water, Scanty Secretion, or
small and frequent discharges of water j Stran
gury, or stopping of water j Hematuria, or
bloody urine; Gout and Rheumatism of the
kidneys, without any chango in qunntity, but
increase in color, or dark water. It was al
ways highly recommend by the late Dr. Phye
ick, in these affections.
This medicine increases tho power of diges
tion, end excites the absorbents into healthy
exercise by which the watery or calcareous do
positions, and all unnatural enlargements, as
well as pain and inllnniation, are reduced, and
it is taken by men, women, and children. Di
rections for use and diet accompany.

II. T. Helmdold, Druggist :
Dear Sir I have been a sufferer, for upward
of twenty years, 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
advertised, I consulted with my family physi
cian in regard to using your Extract liuchu.
I did this because I had used all kiuds 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 to
U60 no remedies hereafter unless I knew of the
ingredients. It was this that prompted me to
use your remedy. As you advertised that it
was composed of buchu, cubebs, and juniper
berries, it occurred to mo and my physician as
an excellent combination, and, with his advice,
after un examination 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 tho llrst bottle I was astonished and grat
ified at tho beneficial effect, and after using it
three weeks, was able to walk out. ' I felt much
like writing you a full statement of my case at
tho timo, but thought my improvement might
only be temporary, and thercforo concluded to
defer and see if it would effect a perfect cure,
knowing then it would be of more value to you,
and moro satisfactory to me.
I am now able to report that a cure Is effect
ed after using the remedy for five mouths.
I havo not used any now for three months,
and feel as well in all respects as I ever did.
Your Buchu being devoid of any unpleasant
taste and odor, a nice tonic and invigorntor of
tho system, I do not mean to be without it
wheuevcr occasion may require its use lu such
