RAILROAD DOORS FOR BARNS.
These doors are far superior to the old
fashioned doors, which rerolvo on hinge*.—
They are opened and closed by means of a
rail and several small iron trucks securely at
tached to the top, and are so constructed as
not only to close the door effectually against
the ingress of raio, snow and cold air, but to
be very durable and in every respect efficient.
Large doors are formed by ons ineh matched
boards, placed perpendienlarly, and crossed
by matched etripe of the same in a diagonal
direction, or from corner to corner on both
aides. These strips are so put on as to repre
sent the sheathing often seen on tine houses,
being about >ix inches wide and covering the
entire surface. It will be seen at once that
three thieknesses of matched boards.securely
nailed aDd thoroughly pinned, besides being
eo hung as to obviate effectually all possi
bility of tagging, as is the case with doors of
ordinary construction and the workmanship
when hung in the usual way must secure an
article of great efficiency and of an almost
indestructible character. The labor of
opening and closing these doors may be per
formed by the merest boy, and in windy
weather they are not slamming and endanger
ing not only their owu fastening and fixtures
bit the lives, also of all by whom I hey are
approached. The old fashion of placing the
trucks at the bottom is anything but deaira
ble, as the former is likely to become clogged
by suow and ice ; but when it is placed at
the top,no obstruction can possibly intervene
from this source ; the door glides easily along
the rail, and never requires to bo forced open
by main strength. Small doors for tis ups,
sheds, out houses, sod other similar buildings
are constructed in a similar way. They are
uiuch cheaper than pannel doors, to which
they are preferable for all purposes where
atrongth and durability are required.—Ger
OYSTERS.—An exchange says : "We sup
pose that sine out of ten housekeepers will
contradict us point blank, in a statement that
nine out of ten of them do not know how to
etew a dish of oysters. By the ovd.ewry
routine that nearly every one follows, evMrer
the oysters are steered and shrivelled out of
all semblance of themselves in shape, size
and flavor, or else the soup and "thickening"
has a raw taste tbat spoils it. Here is the
right method. Try it onoe, and we'll war
rant you won't need telling the second time
Pick the oysters out of the juice with a fork,
as dry as possible : stew the juice, thicken
ing, milk or water, of which the soup is to be
made, until thoroughly cooked ; then drop
the oysters in, and just as the cooled soup
begins to show signs of simmering, empty out
A!) together, and you will have rich soup and
plump oysters, luscious enough to make you
think you never tasted nul oysters before.
USEFUL IIIKTS Wood ashes and common
salt wet with water will soak the cracks of a
6tove and prevent the smoke from escaping.
Stir Poland starch with a common candle
and it will not stick to the iron, and it will
be much nicer.
Alum.pr vinegar is good to 6et colors of
ted, green or yellow.
Sal soda will bleach very white ; one spoon
ful is enough for a ksttle of clothes.
Wash your tea trays with cold suds,
polish with a little flour and rub with a dry
Frozan potatoes make more starch than
fresh ones ; they also make nice cake.
A hot shovel held over varnished furniture
will take out white spots.
A bit of glue dissolved in skim milk and
water will restore crape.
Ribbons of any kind should be washed in
cold soap suds and not rinaed.
If your flat irons are rough,rub them with
fine salt, and it will make them smooth.
ASH RECEPTACLES.—Anthony M. Carson,
Clark Co., Ohio, writes to the Agriculturist
describing an ash receptacle called "Hall's
Ash House," which appears to consist of a
hopper with a aicve at the bottom, forming
the top of the iron-lined, wooden ash holder,
which may be uaed as a leach tub as well.—
When the ashes are leached, by undoing four
hooks tho box may be taken off from the ash
es and set up again. The idea seems to be a
good one, and such an ash receptacle would
not be difficult of construction. Mr. Hal!
may have a patent for it, but if he does not
enable the public -to buy it, he must risk peo
ple making use of his ideas.
LIME FOR CABBAGES.—"Gardener," who
lives on "sand prairie" land in Illinois and
can get no stable manure, wishes to use
lime as a substitute on his cabbage fields,—
Lime is properly no substitute for anitnal
manure, yet it may be, and probably will be
an excellent application for this crop. As a
rule, on pretty good land lime alone with
good culture will probably insure a fair crop
of cabbages. Salt is useful also, and an ex
cellent application is lime slaked with a

which is said to be excellent:
Take three drachms gum camphor, three

two ounces olive oil, Put them together in
a cup on the 6tove, where they will melt

minutes. If the bands be affected, annoint
