lIOW TO PRESERVE CIDEB.
A pure sweet cider is only obtaina
ble from clean, sound fruit, and the
fruit should, therefore, be carefully
examined and wiped before grinding.
In the press use hair-cloth or punny,
in place of straw. As the cider runs
from the press, let it pass through a
hair sie\"e into a large open vessel, that
will hold as much juice as caii be ex
pressed in one day. In one day, or
ROinetimes less, the pomace will rise
to the top, and in a short time jrrow
▼ery thick. When little white bub
bles break through it, draw off the
liquid through a very small spigot,
placed about three inches from the bot
tom, so that the lees may be left be
hind. The cider must be drawn off
into very clean, sweet casks—prefera
bly fresh liquor casks—and closely
watched. The moment the whii«
bubbles, before mentioned, are per
ceived rising at the bunghole, rack it <
•gain. It is usually necessary to re
peat this three times. Then fill up
the cask with cider in every respect
like that originally contained in it,
add a tumbl«r of warm sweet oil, and
bilng up tight. For very tine cider
it is customary to add at this stage of
the process about half a pound of
glucose (starch sugar) or a small por
tion of white sugar. The cask should
then be allowed to remain in a cool
place until the eider has acquired the
In the meantime clean barrels for
its reception should be prepared, as
follows : Some clean Strips of rags are
dipped in melted sulphur, lighted, and
burned in the bunghole, and the bung
laid loosely on the end of the rag, so
as to retain the sulphur vapor within
the barrel Then tie up half a pound
of mustard seed in a coarse muslin bag
and put it in the barrel, fill the barrel
with cider, and add about a quarter
of a pound of isinglass or fine gelatine
dissolved in hot water. This is the
old-fashioned way, and will keep cider
in the same condition as when it went
Into the barrel, if kept in a cool place,
for a year.
Professional cider-makers are now
using calcium sulphite (sulphite of
lime,) instead of mustard and sulphur
vapor. It is much more convenient
and effectual. To use it, it is simply
requisite to add one-eighth to one-quar
ter of an ounce of the sulphite to
each gallon of cider in the cask, first
mixing the powder in about a quart of
the cider and giving the latter a
thorough shaking or rolling. After
standing bunged several days, to allow
the sulphite to exert its full action,
it may be bottled off. The sulphite of
lime (which should not l>c mistaken
for the sulphate of lime) is a commer
cial article, costing about forty cents a
pound by the barrel. It will preserve
the sweetness of the cider perfectly;
but, unless care is taken not to add
too much of it, it will impart a slight
sulphurous taste on the cider. The
bottles and corks used should IK- per
fectly clean and the corks wired down.
A little cinnamon, wintergreen, or
sassafras, etc., is often added to sweet
cider in the bottle, together with a
dram or so of bicarbonate of soda, at
the moment of driving the stopper.
This helps to neutralize free acids and
renders the liquid effervescent when
unstopped; but, if used to excess, it 1
may prejudicially affect the taste.
In storing potatoes several methods |
are adopted, yet they are all practi
cally the same, the object being to
protect them against freezing, whether '
buried in pits or stored iu cellars. The
fifst consideration is to keep them in
perfect darkness; the next is the bins
fthould not be too deep—not over three
feet—to produce warmth and cause
them to sprout. When stored in the
field, straight trenches are dug, say
twenty feet in length and four or five
wide, which are tilled to the depth of
three feet with potatoes, then well
covered with straw, on top of which
pateighteen or twenty inches of earth.
In a pit twenty feet long there should
b4 about three gas escapes or venti
lated openings, which should be plug
ged with straw and covered with a
board set at an angle to turn the rain.
If in cellars, barn or otherwise, the
bins should be covered with rugs, old
carpeting or straw. Those intended
to be kept for late spring sales should
be frequently examined and all sprouts
removed, for as soon as a potato begins
tojjjront it loses its solidity, dryness
KEEPING WINTER VKG ETA BLES.
After the farmer hfw raised a good
mpply of vegetables he often fails to
re&ike the full benefit of his labor from
a lack of knowledge how to keep them.
This especially is the ease with
squashes and that class of vegetables
which require to be kept compara
tively warm and dry. It is quite usual
for him to put them in a pile in the
cellar, and then wonder that they rot.
Squashes, pumpkins, and all thut class
of vegetables require, first, an absence
of light; second, a dry temperature,
not exceeding fifty-five or sixty degrees;
and third, to be so placed that one
does not come in coutact with another.
We have always had success in keep
ing them well into the spring, by
placing them in a cool, dry chamber
until freezing occurs, and then remov
ing them to a closet for safe keeping
over winter. Thus the Hubbard and
other hard-shell varieties may be kept
until May and even June. For use
until February they will keep tolerably
well in a dry cellar, placed 0:1 shelves.
Boston morrow is the first to decay.
The turban—to our mind one of the
best of the winter varieties, especially
for baking—will often keep in the
cellar until March. Those only in
tended for use later need to l>e treated
to the dry, cool closet. It will pay,
for at the latter part of winter and
early spring there is a dearth of vege
table food on the farm that makes such
articles especially valuable.
There aro many farmers who have
extra good butter cows and do not
know it. They have poor pastures in
summer, arid no shelter and indifferent
feed in winter. In the house they
have no conveniences for making but

arrangements for keeping it cool in
summer, and in the living room ex
posed to the odors of tho kitchen in
winter, and neither the quantity nor
the miality are any index of what a cow

SCRIPTURE VS. INGERSOLL]'
A correspondent of the Chicago 1
Tribune contrasts the declaration* of
Colonel Ingereoll, at the funeral of
his brother, with the promises of Holy
writ. He says: Col. Ingersoll's words j
by his brother's grave were eloquent; .
tiiev glowed with tenderness and love; |
they undoubtedly contain all the hope j
and" comfort that infidelity can bring !
to the mourning. '"For whether iu j
midocean or among the breakers of the :
farther shore, a wreck must mark at
last the end of each and all, and every j
life, no matter if its every hour is rich j
with love, and every moment jeweled
with a joy, must at its close become a
tragedv as sad and deep and dark as
can be woven of the warp and woof
jof mystery and death." Compare
these words of Col. Ingersoll above
his brother's lifeless form with the
words of inspiration: "For we know
that, if our earthly house of this tab
ernacle were dissolved, we have a
building of God, a house not made with
hands, eternal in the heavens." Again
he (Ingersoll) says: Life is a narrow
vale between the cold and barren peaks
of two eternities. We strive in vain
to look beyond the heights. We cry
aloud, and the only answer is the echo
of our wailing cry." Those words
came from the Colonel's great tender
heart, when it was overflowing with
1 grief at his brother's untimely death.
Yet how drear and hopeless they
seem when compared to the promise
that is made to the trusting Christian :
"The last enemy that shall Ik- de
stroyed is death. And they that be
wise shall shine as the brightness of the
firmament; and they that turn many
to righteousness as the stars forever
and ever. And God shall wipe away
all tears from their eyes; and there
shall be no more death, neither sorrow,
nor crving, neither shall there be any
more pain, for the former things have

of Potassium and Iron, and is the most
efficacious medicine yet known for
the diseases it is intended to cure.
Its ingredients are so skilfully com
bined. that the full alterative eftect of
each is assured, and while it is so mild
as to be harmless even to children, it is
still so effectual as to purge out from the
system those impurities and corruptions
which develop into loathsome disease.
The reputation it enjoys is derived
from its cures, and the conlidence which
prominent physicians all over the coun

Certificates attesting its virtues have
accumulated, and are constantly being
received, and as many of these cases are
publicly known, they furnish convincing
evidence of the superiority of this Sar

medicine. So generally is its superi

we need do no more than to assure the
public that the best qualities it lias ever
possessed are strictly maintained.
