little strip of prairie land that separated the
two farms, and he conceived the hellish de

corn during the night. He did so, and the
next morning, bright and early, he shoul
dered his rifle . and left the house. Not

considerably excited and out of breath,
came hurrying to the house, 'where lie•sta

buck ;, that The deer attacked him, and he
hardly escaped with his life..
This story was credited by all but the
newlyemployed hand, who had taken a .
dislike to Watt, 'and, from his manner,.sus. •
picioned that something was wrong. He'

house, and going through the field in the di

which the blciod was still oozing.

back to the dwelling of Dood,'who-met him
in the yard, and demand somewhat roughly

" I've been to see if your bullet made

Watt paled for a moment, but collecting
himself he fiertely shouted,
"_Do you dare to say I killed her ?"
"Row do you know she is dead?" red
plied -the man.
Dood bit his lips, hesitated a moment,
and - then turning, walked, into- the house.
- A couple of days passed by, and , the
morning of the third one had broken, as
the hired man met friend Lawson, riding in
search of his filly. -
A few words of explanation ensued,
when with a heavy heart, the Quaker
turned his horse and rode home, where he
informed the people of the fate . Of his filly.
No threat of recrimination escaped him ;
he did not oven go to law to recover dama

of revenge. It came at last.

quietly asked Lawson.

"Did thee beat her ?"
" I never struck herla blow."
" Right, JAcob—rig t ; sit down to thy

Shortly after he hsd finished his re

Cutting anoilCuring Hay.
As the titne for harvesting grass is rapid
ly approaching, it may be proper to make
a few remarks in regard to the Limo or cut
ting and the method or curing it. - Our ag
ricultural friends know that cattle if proper
ly sheltered snd fed on good hay through
the winter Will thrive, and with the addition
of a little grain will fatten, whereas if the
hay is bad,,they will fall away or require
a large quantity of grain to keep' them
in flesh. Of all the cultivated, grasses
usually cut and cured for hay, so far as
our experience goes, clover produces the
most -flesh, although blue-grass and timothy
are perhaps more - pioductive of muscle, and
better food for horses and draft oxen. But
all grasses must he 'Fut at a proper time to
obtain the best qqality of hay.' Every
stalk, stem and-leallof grass is a Chemical
laboratory in whicl different organic sub
stances are - combin d, changes produced,
end new substances formed., -
After maturity, ecay commences, and
in time,'the grasses are resolved into their
native substances. Hence philosophy, as
well as experience,'points to the full matu
rity' of, th e grasses, and before decay corn
mencesots the proper time of - harvesting
them. By cutting• before the juice's arc
fully ,elaborated, the 'quality less, and by
'suffering it to stand, after it has properly
matured, the quality is seriously injured.--
the leaves fail off and the stalks become of
arwoody substance. :- All who - have suffered'
timothy to ripen fully on the foot, for seed,
know that for fodder it is-almost:worthless;
cattle-will scarcely eat-it, hecauseits - juiees

One of the, best titles for a mercantile

Houghton, M. D., No. 11, North Eighth street,
This is a trtily wonderful iemedy for INDL
GESTION, DYSPEPSIA, JAUNDICE, LIVER
COMPLAINT, CONSTIPATION and DEBILL
TY, curing after nature'sown medical, by Nature's
own agent, the Gastric Juice.
Half a teaspoonful of this Fluid, infused in water,
will digest orissolve, five pounds of Roast Beef
in about two hours, out of tit stomach. •
Digestion is chiefly performed in the stomach
by the act of a fluid which freely exudes from, th e
inner coat of that organ, when in a state of healti
called the Gastric Juice. The Fluid is the great
solvent of thc flied, the 'purifying; preserving; and
stimulating agent of the stomach and intestines.
Without it there will be no digestion—no comer.
pion of food and blood, and no nutrition of the
body; but rather a foul, torpid, painful, and de
structive condition of the whole digestive appara
tus. A weak, half dead, or injured stomach pro.
duces no good Gastric Juice,imd hence the disease,
distress.and debility which ensue.
PEPSIN AND RENNET.
Pepsin is the chief element, or great digesting
principle of the Gastric Juice. It is found in great
abundance in the solid parts of the human stomach
altar death, and sometimes causes the stomach to
digest itself or eat itself up. It is also found in
the stomach of animals, as the ox, calf Ac. It is
the material used by farmers in.making Cheese,
called Rennet, the effect has long been the special
wonder of the Dairy. The curdling of milk is
the first process of digestion. Rennet posseises
astonishing power. The stomach of a calf will
curdle nearly one thousand times its own weight
of milk. Baron Leibeg states that, "One part of
Pepsin dissolved in sixty thousand parts" of Water,
will d ige'sf Meat and other food." Diseased stomachs
produce no good Gastric Juice, Rennet or Pepsin.
To show that this want may be perfectly supplied,
we quote the following
• SCIENTIFIC EVIDENCE!
Baron Leibcg, in his celebrated work on Animal
Chemistry, says; " An Artificial Digestive Fluid
may readily be prepared from the nineties mem
brane of the stomach of the Calf, in - which various
articles of food, as meat and eggs, will be softened,
changed and digested, just in the same manner as
they would be in the human stomach." •
Dr. Pereira, in Lis famous treatise on "Food and
Diet," published by Wilson & -Co., • New York,
page .9.5, states the same great fact, and describes
the method of preparation. There aro few higher
authorities that Dr. Pereira.
Dr. John W. Draper, Professor of Chemistry in
the Medical College of the University_ of New
York, in his " Text Book of Chemistry," page
386, says, " it has been a question whether artifi.
cial digestion could be performed—but it is now
universally admitted that it may he."
Professor Dunglisli'n, of Philadelphia, in his
great work on Human Physiology, devotes more
than fifty pages to an examination of this subject.
His experiments with Dr. Beaumont on the Gastric
Juice, obtained from the living human stomach
and from Animals are well known. - "In all cases,"
he says, " digestion occurred as perfectly in the
artificial as in the natural digestions."
AS A DYSPEPSIA CURER.
Dr. Houghton's preparation of Pepsin has pro
duced the most marYellous effects, curing cases of,
Debility, Nervous Decline, and Dyspeptic Con

grave. It is impossible to give the details of cases

It is a great Nervous Antidote, and from the
astonishingly small quantity necessary, to procure
healthy digestion, is believed to act upon.
