Monterlizur.—The Editor of the A
merican Farmer, in answer to a letter of a
correspondein, who complains of mouldy
milk. says:—
The cabs* of milk and cream becoming
mouldy; arises fiat, from the heaviness of
the sunoephere in cloudy weather, second
ly, at the want of ventilation in the milk
house, All such houses ehonld have win
dciws facing each other at the four points
of the Compass, which windows besides
glass sashes, should be covered with fine
glitme-like wire, the upper glass sashes to
be so arranged as to be lowered so as to
admit ingress and egress of wind, and thus
encourage a current of air, to be at all times
passing through the house to carry off and
prevent the damp • vapors front' settling
down upon the milk vessels. '
A German journal states that the appli
cation of galFanism has been made in
Austria for preserving trees from the rava
ges; of insects. The process is simple, con
slating only in placing two rings, one of
copper and the other of zinc, attached to
gether, around the tree ur - Any in
sect that touches the copper, it is said, re
an electric shock, which kills it or causes
it to fall to the ground.

bushes, is an effectual remedy fur caterpil

ficient for the largest garden.
ROOTS roe CNITLE.--Carruts, parsnips
and beets may be sown any time in June,
if your manure is well prepared. It should
be so fine as to be incorporated with the
soil. Platte the manures on the furrows
and harrow thoroughly—harrow on the
very day of planting, , that you may have
as few weeds u possible fur the hoe and
the fingers.
Yourrows or drills may be fifteen inches
apart—and your drills may be made into
hills, if yeti have courage enough to cut
down the pretty looking plants that stand:,
too thick. This labor is done with the hoe
cutting across the rows. When your plants
are all in hills you will have but little thin
ning or hand weeding, in case your ground
was well prepared and suwed.—Mass.
DAIRY UTENBILS.-All dairy utensils
should be scalded, rinsed, and dried every
time therttre ..used... Glazed pottery is
not considered desirable for milk and
and cream, as the acid contained in them
acts upon the glazing, (which is generally
-an-.oxide of lead.J and Converts it into an
active poison. Vessels made of wood are
preferred by many to any others,,for .this
purpose; although they are liable to be
come tsiuted with the acidity of the milk,
in which cue they can be thoroughly
cleansed by boiling; and when this fails,
a little esheratus added to the boiling Iva

Gmrs.—lt is now six months since my
youngest child, a daughter, had a cutane
ous affection, which made its appearance
over its entire body. It was a case of
Hereditary 'fetter, and so virulent was the
disease, that we wished, in case it could
not be speedily relieved, that it might be
soon laid in its grave. At this stage of the
disease my sister-in-law called upon you;
to advise as to the best preparation ofSar
saparilla that could be procured, as an
terative ; when you recommended the use
of Dr. Cullen's Indian Vegetable Panacea,
and I am pleased to say that the good ef
fects of the medicine were perceptible
when it had taken but a few doses; and
by the time we had used one single bottle,
the disease had entirely disappeared, , and
from that time there has been no re-ap
pearance. I really feel thankful to you
for having recommended the Panacea in
this case, for I feel confident that had not
the disease been arrested, my child would,
ere Ilia, have been the tenant of the cold

Mr. J. T. llow•ma.
Deer Sir,—At your request I cheerful
ly give you an accouat of the wondeilful
cure effected upon me by Dr. Cullen's In
dian Vegetable Panacea. At the age of
fourteen years I had upon my right knee
a White Swelling, which stiffened the
joint; and caused some seventy or more
pieces of the hone to come away in the
sores, and which was temporarily relieved
by the usual remedies, but not entirely cu
red. At times sores would again break
out, and become so distressing and painful
that I could get no rest night nor day. In
ibis way it continued till last spring, when,
hating witnessed the extraordinary effects
of your Panacea, as an alterative, upon a
a daughter of mine who was using it for a
chronic disease, I concluded to make a tri
al of it in my own case; the result has
been an entire cure. I ton now sixty-sev
en years of ago, and hulte suffered fifty
three years with sores. I cheerfully add
my testimonial to the many others that
have heard, of the cures performed by your
celebrated Panacea.

most of its bodies with sores; and that for
eighteen months, though consianily under
medical treatment, nothing afforded relief
till 1 was induced to make a trial of Dr.
Cullen's Indian Vegetable Panacea. The
attending physician, on witnessing its good
effects, recommended its continuance ac
according to directions, and by using a
single bottle of the Panacea, the child was
apparently cured. It is now about four

I have now the pleasure to inform you,
fur the benefit of all who are similarly af
