Scrofula, or King's Evil,
ix a constitutional disease, a corruption of the
blood, by which this fluid becomes vitiated,
weak, and poor. Being in tho circulation, it
pervades the whole body, and may burst out
in disease on any part of it. No organ is free
from its attacks, nor is there one which it may
not destroy. The scrofulous taint is variously
caused by mercurial disease, low living, dis
ordered or unhealthy food, impure air, filth
and filthy habits, the depressing vices, and,
above all, by the venereal infection. What
ever be its origin, it is hereditary in the con
stitution, descending " from parents to children
unto the third and fourth generation ;" indeed,
it seems to bo the rod of Him who says, "I
will visit the iniquities of the fathers upon
their children."
Its effects commence by deposition from the
Mood of corrupt or ulcerous meteor, which, in
the lunge, liver, and intomal organs, is termed
tubercles; in the glands, swellings; and on
the surface, eruptions or sores. This foul cor
ruption, which genders in the blood, depresees
the enemies of life, so that scrofulous constitu

era stilt rendered fatal by this taint in tho
system. Mast of the consumption which de.
ohnetos the human family has its origin directly
in this scrofulous contamination; and many
destructive diseases of the liver, kidneys, brain,
and, indeed, of all the organs, arise from or
aro aggsavated by the same cause.
Our quarter of all our people are scrofulous;
their persons are invaded by this lurking in
fection, and their health is undermined by it.
To cleanse it from the system we must renovate
the blood by an alterative mcslicine, and in.
vigorato it by healthy food and exercise.

The vernal rains were falling fast,
AsArough a little village passed
A youth who bore a hickory pole,
And oaen.nnder his control,
Pike's Peak.
Ills brow was glad ; his oyes were bright,
Nor to the left, nor to the right,
He turned, but onward kept his steady course
Ani shouted tea his voice was hoarse,
Pike's Peak,
lle left his happy home by night,
And toward the west he took his flight,
Above the moon in beauty shout,
And from his lips escaped a groan,
Pike's Peak,
"You'd better stay," sow) old men said,
"You'll surely loose your wits or head;
The stormy prairie's long and wide,"
But luud that headstrong youth replied,
Pike's Peak,
"Beware of swindlers, cheats and thieves,
Beware of those who would deceive."
This was the old men's last advice,
To whom the youth said in a trice,
Pike's Peak.
At length the barren plains he reached,
Ilis bread most gone; his form well bleach'd;
But still be groaned that fervent prayer,
Which did not go far through the air,
Pike's Peak.
A traveler by the Platte was found,
Flat as a pancake on the ground,
Still clinging to his hickory pole,
And on the ground could scsreely

There by the diggings, cold and gray,
Lifeless and pennyless he lay,
And could ho speak, you'd hear him say,

The Courier de l'Europa tells the fol
lowing, which took place some thort time
since, on the occasion id - the dist ascent of
that celebrated and lucky toronaut, Mons.
Godard :
Monsieur Godard took with him on that
day is his compagnon de voyage a wealthy
private gentleman, who paid 1000 francs
for the privilege of sharing in the perils
of the expedition. • The *milker could not
have been more propitious and the balloon
shot up rapidly to a considerable altitude.
'What effect does tint produce upon
you ?' asked M. Godard, of his compan
‘Nothir,g !' said the other, laconically.
'My compliments to you.' said Mons
Godard. 'You are the first whom I have

• 'Keep on mounting,' said the traveller,
with a gravity supreme.
M. Godard threw over some ballast. and
the balloon ascended some 500 feet higher.
'And now, added M. Godard, 'does your
heath beat ?'
'Nothing yet !' replied his companion,
with an air which approached closely to

have really, my dear sir, the most perfect
qualification to bo an aeronaut.'
The balloon still ascended; when 1000
foot higher, M. Godard interrogated a third
time his companion.
.And now ?'
'Nothing, nothing; not the shadow of a
fear whatever!' answered the traveller,
wilt a tone positively discontented, and like
a man who had experienced a profound de.
'Goodness sun !so much 'he worse then'
said the aeronaut smiling : but I must re-
nounce all hopes of making you afraid.—
The balloon is high enought We are go

'l'o descend ?'
Certainly; there would be great danger
in going higher.'
, That does rot make the slightest difler-

• You what''
'I ray I wish to ascend higher; keep on
mounting. I have given 1000 francs to
experience some emotion , I must do so,
and I will not descend before I have felt
some emotion.'
M. Godard commenced to laugh ; he be
lieved at once that it was a joke.
'Will you ascend, once morel' demand
ed the traveler, seizing hint by the throat
and shaking Lint with violence; 'when
shall I feel some emotion ?'
M. Godard relates that at this moment
he telt him i self lost. A sudden and arm:-
ful revelation broke upon him in regarding
the strangely dilated eyes of his compag

If the unfortunate aeronaut had had any
oefensive weapon he would, after all, have
been capable of defending himself; but it
is not usual for people to furnish themselves
with pistols for a voynce in a balloon, and
certainly one would not dream of meeting
with a warlike encounter in the stars
The earth was 5000 feet beneath—most

'Be it so.' said the madman, who appear

among the ropes with the agility of a squir

himself astride the semi -circle, as ho bud

shout of triumph, and drew his huife from

of ripping open the balloon.
'To make me s s lf comfortable forthwith.'
Uttering these words the madman cut
slowly the cold of safety which NI. Godard
had attached to his body. With s single

brandishing his knife, !we are going to

'How so ?' asked the madman, stups•
'Yes,' said M. Godard; , my expetience

elevation. Tumble or no tumble, I mast

killed outright, rather than to risk only be

me from a height of 9000 feet only.'
! that'll do !' said the madman,
whom the mention of a more horrible fall
charmed amazingly.
M. Godard follows heroically his pur
pose, and throws over an enormous quaint
,ty of ballast, The balloon makes a power
' fur bound, and mounts 500 feet in a few
seconds. Only—and while he surveys
I this operation tvith a menacing air, the
aeronaut thinks to accomplish another in a
sense quite contrary.
The quick eye of M. Godard had remar
ked that among the cords spared by the
madman, figures the one leading to the
valve. His plan is taken, Ile draws the
cord, it opens the valve fixed in the upper
part of the balloon for the purpose of al
lowing any excess of the hydrogen gas to
escape, and the result which - he hoped for
was not long in making itself apparent.
Little by little the madman becomes
drowsy, asphyxiated, and insensible by the
vapors of the gas which surround him.—
The madman being sufficiently asphyxia
tpd for Isis purpose, M. Godard allows the
balloon to descend slowly to the earth. The
drama is finished.
Arrived on ' , rm./Irina, M. Godard, not
bearing any hatred to the author of his per
ilous voyage r . hastenedto restore him to an
imation, and had hint conveyed, hands and
feet bound to, the neighboring station.

where it is intendid they shall stand during
the summer, which should be where the
sun can strike the hive in the early part
of the day, and also where they can be
easily watched by the family during the
swarming season. Keep the entrance to
hives pretty well closed, to prevent the
chilling of the young brood. This .will al
so guard against robbing; for it is at this
season of the year that they aro inclined
to rob, which they never do when the have
plenty of honey to gather. About the first
of June, raise the hives from the bottom
board by placing blocks of wood •or small
stones under the corners. Some apiarians
raise then: tap early in the spring, Nhich is
wrong, as the cold winds of spring will
chill the brood. Some do not raise them
at all, but leave them close to the bottom
board all summer. In this case they
should be examined every few days, and
all worms found under the edges of
the hive killed—not brushing off on the
ground, for that is where they want to go
—but give them a regular smashing.
SWARMINO.—Every tise-keeper should
be provided with a bee•hat, which can be
`made of wire screen doubled round like a
cylinder' with two ends rivited together
and a piece of cloth sewed over the top or

length of the screen before doubling, sew
the ends making a cylinder as of tho

Put the but on, let ,he looter end of the

boards on the ground,and spread a sheet
over them to keep the bees out of the grass,

When this precation is taken, they will
not often leave the hive. If the hive is
new, never wash it with anything, if it
is an old hive, it should be scraped and
washed with water sweetened with honey
or sugar. Somebody once told me to
