He that by the plough would thrive,
Mowry, must either hold o, drive."
On Shoeing Horses that Overreach.
I was bred from my youth a blacksmith
and farmer, and wether a natural mechanic
or not, I was always anxious to know the
whys and the wherefores of things, or
more properly speaking, the casualties and
preventives I was also fond of trying ex.
periments upon such things as appeared
favorable improvements. I was generally
in the shop with my father of evenings
rainydays, and such other times as•l could
be spared from the farm or school. By
being in the shop so much, I obtained views
of she farmers generally, and by that was
enabled to make many improvements on
the farm. I learned also, that many far
mers entertain very erroneous views about
blacksmithing, (and I add blacksmiths,
too,) still they were bound to dictate aocor
ding to prejudices ; as instance, one says;
"This hcrse overreaches; I want you to
put the forward - shoes as far forward as
possible, and set the hind shoes as far
back, or he will tear them off." I would
sometimes try to reason the case by saying
the way to prevent a horse from overreach
ing,"is to augument the speed of the for
ward feet, and retard the motion of the
hind ones; but in order to accomplish tha',
1 shall have to reverse your dir ctione.
Some who had little or no mechanical ge.
ntue would out short all argument, and
say, "Follow my' directions, or else not
shoe the horse." Of course a mechanic
must obey orders, if he breaks owners, so
the horses would go out of the shop nicely
fettered, with his shoes clicking at every
step; while, perhaps the man of inquiry
would desire a full explanation. My way
is to make the toe corks very low, and
standing a lit• . le under, and the shoes set
as far back as convenient on the lanyard
feet, with high heel•cork, so as to let them
roll over as soon as possible. On the hind
feet I have the heel-cork low and the toe
oork high, projecting forward, thus keep
ing back the hind foot while coming up
over a high toe-cork, giving time to the
forward foot to get out of the way. If thus
shod, the horse will travel clean, without
a click, and his speed will be increased on
a trot fifteen or twenty seconds in a mile.
New England Farmer.
, A correspondent of the Genessee Far-
met, gives his mode of growing tomatoes.
He forwards hie plants in a hot bed or
green house and grows them in pots un
til a foot or a foot and a half high, turning
them out about the third week in May,
He plants them three feet apart in rows.
When'planted, be drives down a few
stakes, to make a trellis. The ground
should be dug deep and made rich vtth
manure, and a spoonful ofguano mixed
with the soil around each root. We quote :
'When they have grown sufficiently long
to tie to the trellis, I select two or three of
the longest shoots and tie them loosely to
the trellis, cutting away all other small la
which may grow on the main bran
chef:. I let these main branches grow
until they have come in fitmer and let the
first bunch of fruit; then I pinch out the
top,.one joint above the fruit leaving the
leaf entire. I then allow it to go on
again until it has flowered and' set anoth
er bunch of fruit, when this is pinched out
one leaf above the bunch, the same as the
first, and so on of all the rest, taking care
to cut all the laterals which may grow on
the main branches down to the axels of the
leaves entire. If any one will take this
little extra trouble, he will be amply re
paid and absolutely astonished at the im
mense cluster of fine large tomatoes he
will have. If planted in a favorable situ
ation, they will ripen at least as early as
those grown in any other way out of doors
and frequently three days or a week earli
er. When ripe they will hang longer on
the vines without decaying. The situa
tion can hardly be too sunny. Deep, light
loamy soil suits them best.—Wel. Visitor.

HR• LINDSEY has discovered a remedy that
will cure all diseases arising from impure
blood, which is the foundation of all diseases.
I will warrant it to cure all the withimnamed
diseases, such as
Chronic Scrofula, Humors Ville Skin, Minors,
Ulcers on the Head or Body, and all
Break-outs on the Face.
And it will also cure all Induita Ulcers of
many years standing; Sore Mouth, caused from
using murcury, and will eradicate . mercury,
from the system. When the IMPROVED
BLOOD SEARCHER operates on mercury,
all other impurities of the blood will be swept
from the system, and it purifies the blood as
pure as vegetable melicine can make it; nod
whets the blood is pure, the man woman or
child, will take no disease, for the impure blood
which is the cause of disease, is gone. It will
also cure all Debilitated Disoaeoe, such as
drive from a derangement of the liver; it will

sex can be cured is the first stages, and fifty pe
cent. in the second ; but in the third stage itls
impossible to save more than live per cent., for
the Lunge are so cut up by the disease as to bid
defiance to medical skill. Even, however, in the
last stages, Inhalation affords extraordinary re
lief to the suffering attending this fearful scourge
which annually destroys ninety-five thousand
persons in the United States alone ; and a cor
rect eiteculation shows that of the present popu
lation of the earth, eighty millions are destined
to fill the Consumptive's graves.
Truly the quiver of death has no arrow so fa
tal as Consumption. In all ages it has been the
great enemy of life, for it spares neither age nor
sex, but sweeps oft alike the brave, the beauti
ful, the graceful and the gifted. By the help o
that Supreme Being from whom cometh every
good and perfect gift, I am enabled to offer to
the afflicted a permanent and speedy care in
Consumption. The first cause of tubercles is
from Impure blood, and the immediate effect pro
duced by their deposition in the lungs is to pre
vent the free admission of air into the air cells,
which causes a weakened vitality through the
entire system. Then surely it is more rational
to expect greater good from medicines entering
the cavities of the lungs than those administered
through the stomach ; the patient will always
find the lungs free and the breathing easy, after
Inhaling remedies. Thus, Inhalation is a local
remedy, nevertheless it acts constitutionally and
with more power and certainty than remedies
administered by the stomach. To prove the pow
erful and direct influence of this mode ofadmin
istration, chloroform inhaled will entirely de
stroy sensibility in a few minutes, paralyzing
the entire nervous system, so that a limb may be
amputated without the slightest pain; inhaling
the ordinary burning gas will destroy life in a
The inhalation of ammonia will rouse the sys
tem when fainting or apparently dead. The o
dor of many of the medicines is perceptible in
the sktn a few minutes after being inhaled, and
may be immediately detected in the blood. A
convincing proof of the constitutional effects of
inhalation, is the fact that sickness is always pro•
duced by breathing foul air—is not this positive
evidence that proper remedies, carefully prepar
ed and judiciously administered thro' the lungs
should produce the happiest results 1 During
eighteen years' practice, many thousands suffer
ing from diseases of the lungs and throat, have
bean under my care, and I have effected many
remarkable cures, even after the sufferers had
been pronounced in the last stages, which fully ,
satisfies ma that consumption is no longer a fa
tal disease. My treatment of consumption is
original, and founded on long experience and a
thorough investigation. My perfect acquaintance
with the nature of tubercles. &c., enables me to
distinguish, readily, iho various forms of disease
that simulate consumption, and apply the proper
remedies, rarely being mistaken even inn single
case. This familiarity, in connection with cer
tain pathological and microscopic discoveries en
ables me to relieve the lungs from the effects of
contracted chests, to enlarge the chest, purify
the blood, impart to it renewed vitality, giving
energy and tone to the entire system.
Aledicines with full directions sent to any part
of the United States and Canadas by patients
communicating their symptoms by letter. But
the cure would be more certain if the patient
should pay me a visit, which would give me an
opportunity to examine the lungs and enable me
to prescribe wills much greater certainty, and
then the cure could be effected without my see
ing the patient again.
