and, on the iak disappearing, rub it over
immediately with a rag wetted in cold
water, or there wrill be a white mark,
which trill not lie easily effaced.
To GET TICKS Orr or SHEET. —AT this
aaason of the year common mercurial
ointmcut, mixcvl with seven jvirts of
lanl, is an effectual rem rely. It is rubbed
on the skin in furrows made by the own
ing of the wool, and should be most free
lr applie-1 to the ports which ate esjieci
ally frequente,! by iuwets—the neck and
bnsket. Half an ounce of it may be
safelv use-l u{>on an ordinary sized M"
rino lamb, having ordinary access to shel
ter in any but exceedingly temfiestuiius
or changeable weather ; and this would
be more than sufficient for the purpiwe.
A CM UP HOT-BED. —As many of vbur
readers have no regular hot-bed. I "pro
pose to {five thorn here a dnm simple
and effectual plan—one within the reach
of everybody, (let a common, Largedry
goods box,—as large as you like, or seve
ral of them if TOU need so many. Fill
it with freah, dry stable manure, and
water it gently as von put it in. When
the box is two-thirds full, put on about
two or three inches of rich, fine soil, and
now your seed ; then put a common a iu
dow sash—or make one to fit—over it,
and put the box in a sunny spot, shel
tered from the north and west winds.
Water occasionally, and give air on hot
days. Yon will thus have plenty of fine
plants a* small cost Even a common
barrel wdl answer a pretty good pur
pose.—R tml _Vtr Yorkvr.
How TO MANAGE Spurs a Pros. —In
answer to this question, put by one of
its contributors, the American Agricul
turist has the following : It depends on
the breed, the food at command, he
conveniences for feeding, the probable
price for pork next fall, and the price a
year hence. We should premise, how
ever, that in any case the pigs should
have all they will eat of some kind of
food. The only difference to be made
between growing pigs and fattening is
in the character of the food. A fatten
ing pig requires rich, concentrated food;
a gtowing pig a more bulky ami less
nutritious food ; but iu either cases, the
Pt, to do well, must have all it will eat.
you have a -mull boned, well hred pig,
such as a grade Essex or Berkshire or
Suffolk, we think it would lie far more
profitable as a rale to fatten spring pigs
than to winter them over. Let them
have the run of a clover p isture, all the
milk and slop from the house, and all
the corn and other grain in water twenty
four hours before feeding. If well bml,
such' treatment should give you pigs
that will dress 300 pounds bv the first of
December. On the otuer hand, if you
have a course, large-loned breed of pigs,
the better plan will be to winter them
over. In this ease, give them the ran
of a good clover pasture, plenty of water,
what waste from the house you have to
spare, and a little'grain to keep them
growing as rapidly as possible.
—A correspondent of the Emgtisk Mt
chanic thus describes the method of pol
ishing linen surfaces adopted at the laun
dries : —Put a little common wax in your
starch, say two ounces to the pound;
then if you use Glenfield or some other
thin patent starch, be sure you use it
warm, otherwise the wax will get hard
and gritty, and spot your linen, giving it
the appearance of being stained with
grease ; starch the fronts and wristbands
as stiff as you can. I always starch
twice, that is, starch, dry, then starch
again. Iron your shirt with a box-iron
in the usual way. making the linen nice
and firm, but without any attempt to
make good finish ; don't lift the plaits ;
your shirt is now ready for polishing,
hut yon ought to have a board same sire
as a common shirt board, made of hard
wood, and covered with only one ply of
plain cotton cloth. Put tliia board into
the breast of your shirt, damp the front
very lightly with a wet sponge, then take
a polishing iron, which is fiat and level
led a little at one end—polish gently
with the levelled part, care not to
drive the linen up into wtvelike blisters;
of course this requires a little practice,
but if you are careful and persevere, in a
short time von will be enabled to give it
that enamel-like finish which seems to be
so much wanted. To dress collars.—
For this purpose use best Irish starch,
21b. 4oz. wax, 6t pints water; first dis
solve the wax in boiling water, put it in
a goblet and allow it to stand for five
minutes; during this time dissolve the
starch in the smallest possible quantity
of cold water, then pour it gradually into
the goblet, and l>oil for twenty-five min
utes, keep stirring all the time; this
starch can be used quite cold. Rub it
well into the collars, wring as tight as
you can, finish by wringing in a cloth,
thus you will have them stiff without
being hard, and when well dressed will
have that beautiful elastic finish so much
admired in new collars.
A Secret Poison.
According to the Medical I'rest and
Circular of London, a new "secret poi
son'] has been discovered across the At
lantic. Its deadly character may be in
ferred from the statement that: "By its
inhalation simply through the meuium
of a letter sent by post in the ordinary
way, the reader will suddenly dropdown
dead, with all the symptoms of as
phyxia." An English journalist, com
menting upon this statement, remarks
that the same subtle poison appears to
be in use in Canada, and adds : " The
following clipping from a Canadian paper
on the death of a person of note, looks
very ugly :' He received an anonymous
letter, and, while reading it, he fell down
insensible, and shortly after expired. It
is said the letter contained some poison
ous substance.'" We suspect that thi
clipping is from some sensational story
paper, the pages of which always abound
in these startling effects. Hydrocyanic
acid, better known as Prussic acid, is
the only known poison whjch acts with
sncli deadly activity as this, and it is not
easily obtained of the requisite strength
except by chemists. Suicides use it oc
casionally. as it does not distort the
limbs or features, and it leaves no telltale
smell behind it except a faint scent of al
* A SAD CASE. —One of the saddest cases
of suicide lately put on rectrd took
place in Illinois the other day. A young
girl, only fifteen years of age, took a
dose of arsenic, and, despite the efforts
of the physician, who was called in, died
shortly afterwards. The cause of the
deed was attributed to the unkindness
and ill treatment she had received at
home. *
nia cattle raiser has been lately trying
the experiment of training coyotes or
prairie wolves as shepherd dogs, bat
does not consider his experiment entirely
successful, as the sheep are generally
killed before the. training has been com
pleted. He has,' however, strong hopes
of succeeding in his object in time.

although he known to several of the
crew who were engaged in the eoußte.
In apite of tin* notoriety. the moat stren

discover any trace of the gniltv person,
nud the matter M finally forgotten, ex
cept hv a few eealous official* wboae
memories were kept sharpened by the
promised reward. Among these w the
turnkey of the Wayne County Jail, af
terwards janitor to the Chicago city
prison. To tlii* worthy, hope long de
terred filially came at last, when one
morning in ISOO, thirteen years after the
date of the murder, he found in his
charge Edward Murphy, who hnd lawn
looked up for drunkenness the night tie
fore. Him. upon inspection and inqui

identify Muqvhv, at first failed, but li
ually doing so after consul

were hrought from Detroit, and after
similar consultation*. arrived at similar
The cud of the investigation was that
a requisition was procured from the Gov
ernor of the State, and Murphy was
taken to Mackinaw aud put 011 trial for
untrder. In the interim he bad not been
allowed to write home, or bis letters bad
lieeu iuteroeptod ; lie had been denied
permission to communicate with coitus '1
or friends, and his wife had lx<en in
formed that he waa dead. Utterly with
out money or sympathy, and positively
identified by the ex-tumkey and his as
sociates, Murphy's fate was speedily de
cidevl. He was found guilty, and asked
the usual question if he had any reason
to give why sentence should not be passed
upon hitu. Then he told his story that
he was a farmer from the centre of Illi
nois, where he had lived for fifteen years,
and that he came to Chicago on the bftsi
night in quest of some stolen eattle. Ap
parently this statement was treated as a
criminal's invention; uo jmins at least
acorn to have been taken to verify it; and
while the turnkey pocketed his reward,
Murphy went to the State Prison. There
he remained for some years, until at la-t
he succeeded in communicating with his
wife, only to find that believing him
dead, she had sold the projierty, squan
dered the proceeds, and was without a
cent to assist him. He had theu no other
resource but to write to his friends in
Ireland, from whom he obtained money
to fee a lawyer. The case was then for
the first time strictly inquired into, the
prisoner's innocence (>roved, and liis
wrongs partially requited with the poor
reparation of an official pardon.

then complain that your wife declines to

Death of the Hermit of the llmbon.
Daniel Williams, the hermit of the
Hudson river, who lias lived for many
years in seclusion in a little log hut
which he had constructed upon tin- *as
tern bank of the river, near Kidney
Creek, in the town of Easton, Washing
ton couuty, was found dead in his shantv
a few days since. The recluse never left
his hut for the haunts of man, except
when his necessities required that he
should go out and tiart-r with the world
for provisions to sustain life. Altseutuig
himself beyond the usual time, several of
his neighbors visit*-d his dwelling aud on
kickiug the door open found the hermit
lying upon the floor stiff and cold,
judging from appearances, Mr. Williams
had been dead some days, having prolst
bly fallen from his chair, and expired
instantly. He was bora and reared in
Eiiston. Several yeais since, becoming
disputed with the world, be took upon
himself the life of a hermit, ami {wssed
his time wholly exempt from the cares of
life, and in entire seclusion from the
world around him. He was a man of
considerable ability, aiul is said to have
been possessed of proportv at his death.
THE suffering* of the Parisians timing
the siege of the ritv bare yet to be told.
A correspondent of one of the morning
{tapers begins to throw light on the sub
ject and saying that the difficulty of ob
taining even the scanty supply of food
that was doled out was a great hardship.
All Paris had to go and form in lines at
the various stations for bread, meat, fuel,
Ac., and men and women would go Itc
fore daylight and stand for hours in a
bleak wind or driving snow or rain, with
feet wet and half frozen waiting for the
bit of horse meat and course bread.
Thousands, it is said, died of this expo
sure. And it is not alone the poor who
have suffered in this way, many of fhe
rich having been forced to take their
places in the hunger queue*, ladies of
rank having been so kept alive. Add to
all this that then* was not sufficient fuel
to make fires, and that the only warmth
to be obtained by the shivering citizens
was by standing in the sunshine, and
the condition of the conquored city may
be imagined.

Calcutta Robber*.
The following account of an attempt
at highway robbery in Calcutta show*
the ingenuity of rascal* ia not yet ex

On the afternoon of January 13 the
daih remittance from the custom house
to tiie Itaiik of Ihuigal, at t'aleutta, was
carried as usual in a money eheet on n
wheellairrow, drawn by some coolies and
accouqunncd by a chowkidar of police
and a oust tun house Clear. When the
party had reached within a short di*-
tance of the lutuk, on the Stiwinl rotul, a
during feat was attempted. A man,
seemingly a European, with his fact
masked, ami inounte,! on a powerful
lit true, came up to the chest, suddenly
producing from under his clothes a small
piece of bamboo, with a hook attach ail
to one end ami a knife to the other.
The IUMUIHH) itself was uttwhwl to hi*
waist with a long rojw. He threw it on
the chest, and, the hook catching the
iron handle of the box, he hftAl it up by
means of the rope. aud commenced
riding aloug at a rapid }ttce.
The whole of the prticeedittga, which
ditl not occupy tnore than a few aeeonds,
staggered the jwurty in charge of the box.
and the man might liave successfully
made away with the money hal it not
la-en for its weight, which broke the
tiamlle of the b ix. The box fell to the
ground and the man rode awav out of
sight lie fori- any one attempted to seize
liim. The lan contained 30,000 rupis-*,
7,U*' rupee* being in silver, and the rest
in checks and notes. The |H>lice have
not yet succeeded in getting any trace of

do duty to the young onuelideu. F'riglit

submits with n stupid kiud of astonish

hanging on its legs: and when the mo

than the more (mtient cow ; it kicks, and

length it falls into the water under
the storm of its numerous enemies,
it lieeomoa mad with terror. That

Mi-rnATED CCHHKHCT.—A Postmaster
in Tennessee was so overrun by mutila
ted currency, in consequence of a North
Carolina Postmaster having been fined
S'.fi for not receiving it, that he has writ
ten to the United States Treasurer, and
lias rceeivisl a reply that must set at rest
a somewhat vexed question. The Treas
urer savs :
"Under the rules of the Treasury
Department, Postmasters are authorized
to receive snch currency for its full val
ue in payment of postage stamps, when,
in ease of United States notes, not more
than one-twentieth of the note is miss
ing, and in rases of fractional rurreucy,
when not more than one-tenth is missing.
When such notes and fractional currency
are mutilated beyond the standard re
ferred to, no one is compelled to receive
them for any part of their valne, and
the only iilnee where such notes may be
r*d*emetl is at the U. S. Treasurv."
A FmoirrrrL ACCIDENT. A shocking
accident occurred, by wliich three men
lost their lives, in London, recently.
They were employed in constructing a
sower at Roliert street. Mile End. There
was an excavation thirty feet in depth in
the middle of fhe rood. The excuvntion
was narrow at the top ; and as it WAS in
tended to have the sewer bulging out at
the Imttom, six men and a lad were or
dered to dig away the earth that was at
the sides of the bottom of the sewer, and
they accordingly did so for a distance of
about thirteen yard* along the liottom
Ki t The top part was shored up by
am* in the tumid manner ; but tho un
dermining of the lower earth caused the
upper crust to lieoome loosened. The
ganger or foreman of the works felt the
ground tremble underneath* and be
shouted out to the men at work, " It's
going to fall in—look out ! " Before the
workmen could escajic the whole side of
the sewer gave way, and three of the
men were instantly killed. Two men
and a lad were partly buried, but were
got out.
hnrrioane lately passed over a portion of
East St. Louis. The number of killed
and wonnded cannot lie statied, but sev
en arc known to be killed and lietween
thirty and forty seriously wounded, some
dnngerou*l ( v and a good many more
slightly injured. It is believed a num
ber of jiersons are still buried beneath
the ruins. The scene is frightful. Houses
are torn to fragments, others ore unroof •
ed or upset, and still others are carried
boldly from their foundations. Scarcely
a building or tree or anvthing else within
the track of the storm is standing. The
wreck and ruin is complete.

It ia a matter of wonder that agricul-1
