PKOSPKCTUS. —"Of making many books
there is no end," and the multiplication of
newspapers is the popular source of educat
ing the people. We are aware that the idea
is quite preyelent that Bradford County has
too many papers, but with the large number
not one is wholy devoted to the interest of
the great producing, class—the agricultur
ists —and at the urgent solicitation of some of
the best practical farmers in the county, we
have decided to commence about the first of
the new year, a local agricultural weekly,
especially adapted to the wants of the farmers
of this section. The contributors to the
paper will embrace the best practical farmers
in the county, and we shall aim to make it
of real value to every tiller of the soil, dairy*
Iman and stock raiser in the county, by giv
ing the results of experiments by those in
whom the classes interested have confidence,
and whose success in business is an evidence
fo thorough practical knowledge.
The paper will contain a condensation of
the general news and the fullest local notes.
Fuller particulars hereafter.

A pretty little device for window decora
tion is a sponge suspended by a fancy cord.
Dampen the sponge and sprinekle flax, mus
tard, or other seed over it. This seed will
germinate, and the result will be a mass of
beautiful green. The sponge can he washed
and replenished with seed when decay takes
place. A handsome mantel ornament can be
prepared by tilling a goblet about two-thirds
full of water, and placing on the water a lay
er of cotton, Upon the cotton sprinkle grains
of wheat, oats or other cereals seeds. In a
few days the seeds will sprout,, shooting
downward into the water a myriad of tiny
roots, and upwards numerous green spears.

from the looks of their paper, they undoubt

A correspondent of the Rittston Gazette
writes as follows respecting a remedy for
a terrible scourge of tin; human race:
"When JENEER discovered cow-pox in Eng

lanche of fame upon bis bead, but when the
most scientific school of medicine in tiie
world—that of Paris— published the feeeipe
which 1 lierew it ii append, as a panacea l'cr

would compel their physicians to use this
remedy there would he 110 need of pest bou

will use it for that terrible disease. It has
been used, to my knowledge, in hundreds ol
cases, ami is as unfailing as Lite, conquering

a well person, and will prevent or cu. the
