It has been demonstrated that in fatten
ing hogs, ti great saving of fond is made by
cooking; and we believe that a very con
siderable improvement in the quality of
pork is likewise effected by that process ;
From experience, we should altogether
prefer pork, either for eating fresh or for
salting, that had been fattened on daily
slops, with cooked potatoes, pumpkins, or
apples, mixed while hot with a portion of
meal, either of corn, rye, barley, oats and
peas, or buckwheat. We know the idea
is prevalent that the best pork is made from
"hard corn and cold water ;" some, in
deed, who allow their hogs vegetables and
slops during the first part of their fatten
ing, confine them wholly to corn for a
short time before they are killed, in order,
att . they_isay,,to..rharden" the pork.. We .
are convinced this is croneous. In the
Western part of the country, where . in
many cases nothing butcorn is fed to hogs
from thg time they are able to swallow it
till they are slaughtered, the pork is noto
riously more oily, and not as well tasted
as that which is made in sections where a
variety of food is used.
In feeding store swine, the advantage of
cooked food is not so obvious. The di
gestive organs can manage a small quiinti
City of raw food, eveit though it be Indian
corn, and are probably able to extract the
nutriment- fully - from- it;. but if the raw
food is increased beyond a certain amount,
it will not be thoroughly digested. We
have heard it argued that if it were neces
sary to restrict hogs to a short allowance,
it would be best to give the -food raw, be
caused the longer time required for its di
gestion, kept the animals longer free from
pangs of hunger. It must he a belief sim
ilar to this, or the result of actual experi
ence, which induces the Irish people (ac
cording to Mr. Colman) to cook their po
tatoes so slightly as to "leave a stone in the
middle." We confess this idea is not to
us unreasonable. But when it is wished
to fatten animals it 'becomes an object to
have them-consume as great a quantity of
food daily as can be perfectly digested, be
cause the sooner they consume a given a
mount, the greater will be the proportion
of flesh or fat accumulated. Cooking does
the work, in part, of digestion, and by thus
assisting the functions of the animal, ena
bles it to, dispose of a larger quantity, while
at the same time, it is disposed in a man
ner most profitable io the feeder.
From the middle of September to the
middle of November, the pumpkin is one
of the best articles of food for hogs which
the farmer can have. By the way, we.
deem the pumpkin crop the moat profita
ble that can be grown. For the produc
tion of rich butter, we know of nothing
equal to it, it comes in just when there is
usually a deficiency of grass-feed. For
`fully two months they may be used to ex
cellent advantage and with but little trou
ble. For cows it is only' required to cut
them and feed them in their mangers, or
break them in pieces on clean sward
ground. For hogs they should be boiled
in as little water as will answer to cook
them ; when soft they should be mashed
fine, and about one-fourth of their bulk of
meal intimately mixed in. Good ripe,
sweet pumpkins, cooked in this way, with
a little whey or skimmed milk, will make
hogs fatten as fast as any food we have ev
THE PRESERVATION OF A DECAYING
Pzacm TREE.—Care and kindness to trees
is sometimes as well repayed as that which
is bestoWed upon individuals. The Flush
ing (L. L) Journal states a case in point.
A careful old lady had rented a house and
garden in that village, and on taking pos
session, it was discovered that there was
a diseased tree in the garden which the
owner advised should be taken up and
destroyed. The old lady, however, ob
jected to its destruction. She dug up the
doomed tree and carefully scraped every
root, and then made a strong decoction of
soap suds, and with a brush gave it a thor
ough scrubbing. Having done this she
nailed some lime with the earth from which
it wiustakeu, and putting the tree in its orig
inal place, with occasional nursing, she
left it to its fate. This year the tree has
the appearance of perfect health, and is so
full of fruit, that props have become nee
eSaary to sustain the branches from break
Ta IT. —A . farmer, who is famous (or
having good fruit, says he raises his fruit
in the following manner takes a cut
ting from the best tree he can find, puts
the end of the cutting into a large potato,
and sets it in the earth, leaving but one or
two inches of the cutting above the ground.
The cutting goon sends out roots and
grows rapidly, making a fine tree, which
needs no engrafting.

DYSPEPSIA OF 10 YEARS STANDING.--
The wile of Captain Roberts, on Vine
Street, near Water, Cincinnati, being af
flicted with Dyspepsia in its most aggrava
ted form for the last ten years, was recom
mended by,celebrated physicians of Bos
ton, New York, Philadelphia, Baltimore,
and Cincinnati, to travel, as they could do
nothing for her. She did so, but it did her
no good. She then commenced using the
most popular medicines of the day for her
complaints, but derived no benefit. See
ing an advertisement of Dr. Smith's Veg
etable Stirar Canted Pills in the paper, she
concluded to give them a trial—sent to G.
F. Thomas, Main street, between Third
and Fourth, the Smith's Agent for Cincin
nati, and purchased a box, took them ac
cording to direction, and can with heart-felt
joy state that she derived more benefit from
the use of one box of Dr. Sugar Coated
Vegetable Pills, than from any other med
icine she has made use of during the ten
years. [The above was sent to G, F.
Thomas on the third day of December,

Dear Sir—About three weeks ago my wife
caught a severe eold, which troubled her a good
deal and gave her great uneasiness; she prepared
a great many articles which were recommended
to her by her friends, but without receiving, the
benefit from any of them ; her cough was getting
worse every day;'her appetite was fast fai ling
and to sleep was impossible: the pans in her
breast and, side became so severe that that she
had to go to bed. and my friends advised me ;so
call in a Physician. I thought I would call'in
the store where you were engaged and see if I
could not get something that would relieve her,
when you gave me a bottle of your Expectorant,
assuring me that it would cure her, she commen
it that night, not, however, without
great opposition on the part of some of he
friend*, who said- it was only some "Quack
Medicine," and would do her more harm
than good. But I determined to take your advice,
and Dow kt ail know Ile Remit 1 From liking the
first dose On Adtcasier, though unable to sleep
sin account of the
ed and ; would almost choke her, but which she
could spit op with but little'difficultY; the follow
ing day she continued it according to the direc
tions, and that time- '
for the first time for nearly
two weeks, she enjoyed a good night's rest and by
the time she'had finished the first bottle, she was
entirely cured. Make what use of this you think
proper, for such an invaluable medicine should be
made known to the afflicted every where. With
best wishes for your success,
I remain yours he.,

MOST WONDERFUL CURE.
Philadelphia, Dec. 4,1817. :
Penetrated with a deep sense of gratitude for

like me, have languished through years of affliction
and suffering, without being able to find a remedy

make the following statement.
About four years since, alter being affected with

severe cough. Whilst the cough continued,s•hich
was with scarcely an ter m during this
long period, language fails to tell what I have euf•

night sweats, difficult expectoration, oppressed
merk a severe pulmonary affection. The relief

During this time I was under the treatment of
several physieians,and took many of Mote preps
rations recommended as serviceable in the cases
of others but without relief : and - f at length con

how agreeably changed is now my opinion! I
have used for shout three weeks Thomson's Com

your Dr. Cullen's Indian Vegetable Panacea upon
my own person, a feeling of gratitude for your

few days thereafter, however, while killing bogs,
hurt the same leg badly, in consequence of
