A HINDOO FABLE.
THE BLIND MEN AND THE ELEPHANT.
It was six men of Ihdoostan,'
To learning much inclined,
Who went to see the Elephant,
(Though all of them were blind,)
That each by observation •
Might satisfy his mind.
The First approached_ the Elephant,
And happening to fall •
Against his broad and sturdy side,
At once began to bawl: •
" God bless me !—but the Elephant
Is very Ake 'a wall !"
The Second, feeling of the tusk,
Cried, " 11 . 0 l what have we here,
So very round and smooth and sharp?
To me 'tis mighty clear,
This wonder of an Elephant,
Is very like a spear !"
The Third approached the~nimal,
And happening toltahe '
The squirming trunk within his bands,
• Thus - boldly.up and spake :
a I see," quath he, "-the Elephant
Is very like a snaked"
The Fourth reached out hiseager hand,
And felt about the knee ;
"What most this wondrous beast is like
Is very plain," quoth he ;
"'Tis mighty plain the Elephant
Is very like a tree !"
The Filth, who chance to touch the ear,
Said, td E'en the blindest man
Can tell what this resembles most—
Deny the fact who can,
This marvel of an, Elephant
Is very like a fan !"
The Sixth, no sooner had, begun
About the base to grope,
Th;iii;'Seiting, on the swinging tail
That.felf within his scope,
" I see," quoth he, " the Elephant
Is very like a tope !"
And so these meu of Indoostan
•.;-Disputed loud and long,
Each in his own opinion
.Exceedtng still' and strong ;
Though each was partly in the right,
Arid all were in the wrong !
So, oft in theological wars
The Disputants, I weep!
Rail on in utter ignorance .
Of what each other mean,
And prate about an Elephant
Not one of them has seen!
INCIDENTS OF BATTLE.—Several inci
dents of the late battle of Belmont, and
statements in reference to wounded, are
related by correspondents of St. Louis
One .p tor fellow, after he was wound
ed, bethought himself to take a 'smoke ;
ha.was found .in a,setting position against
a tree, dead, with his pipe . in one hand,
knife in another, and hia tobacco in his
A young lad about eighteen was foupd
lying across a log, just as he fell, grasp
ing his musket in both bands,
A wounded man with both his legs
nearly shot off; was found in the woods
singing the " Star Spangled Banner,"
but for this circumstance, the surgeons
they would not have discovered him.
A captain of one of the Federal regi
ments was looking at the prisoners we
captured at Belmont, and recognized
one of them as his own brother.
GETTING A. WEDDING COAT.—AmOn g
the anecdotes related by 'Dr. Bushnell,
'in his sermon at Litchfield, illustrative
of the . Age of Homespun, was this : One
of the aged divines of that country, still
liring, was married during the Revolu
tion, but under singular difficulties.—
There was an obstacle to the wedding
which seemed insurmountable. He had
no wedding coat; nor was wool to be
had to make one, and it was in the dead
of winter. Yet'all parties' weie ready,
and he was anxious to be 'married with
out, delay. At list the mother of the
intended bride discovered the difficulty,
and promptly had some of her sheep
shorn and sewed up in blankets to keep
them warm, while of the wool she spun
and wove a coat for her intended sou
per' A Yankee boy and, a Dutch boy
went to school to a Yankee school
master; who, according to custom in
quired, " What is your name ?" "My
name is Aaron." " Spell it." " Big A,

your seat." Next came the dutch boy.—
" What his your name ?" "My name is

INDIAN CORN FOR 'FOOD

Three' Ways of cooking Indian
Economy is the word now, or should
be, in every family. Some are compel
led to economize ; othgrs do so from
motives of benevolence, that they may
be better able to assist their less fortu
nate friends and neighbors ; while others
will practice economY from patriotic
motives. There are over twenty million
inhabitants in the Northern and Middle
States. If, by economy in foiod, cloth
ing, luxuries, furniture, carriages, and
in sundry other items, the average re
duction of 'current expenses for one year
be only 7 cents a day each, the savings
will amount to over five hundred milliOn
dollar's (500,000,000 r.) This would
balance the Four Hundred Millions ex
pended by the government, and leave
one hundred millions as an offset to ex
tra expenses and contribution of those
not- connected with or employed by
government ; so - that the nation would
have quite as much wealth after a year's
war, as if peace had prevailed, and the
people had gone on in their previous
modes of living. The half-million sol
diers will, of course, save money during
the year, for even the humblest gets all
his food, clothing, and traveling expert
see, besides $156 in money, which all
come• out of the FoUr Hundred Million
Dollars expended by the Government,
while the balance is nearly all paid to
manufacturers, laborers, cultivators, ect.,
here at home.
We believe the people cap and will
reduce their expenses 7 cents a day each,
on the average. With some; the saving
will amount to but 1 or 2 cents daily,
while others will far exceed the 7 cents.
There are many ways in which people
can expend less than they would have
done under other circumstances. In
the single item of clothing, much will be
saved. Some will buy one coat or one
dress less. Some will wear as4or $5
bonnet instead of a s7or $8 one. Some
will wear a good, substantial pair of
boots or shoes, • instead of a fancy pair
that would cost more and give out soon
er—and this will he a manifest saving
of health and comfort. The old harness
will do to drive to church or to town
for another year. But we can not par
ticularise further. One of the good ef
fects of this war will be to bring us back
to 'more economical habits, which' will
cling to us afterward.
The main object of the present chap
ter, is to assist, if we can, in ECONOMY iN
FOOD. Did it ever occur to the reader
how little; comparatively, we as a people
use Indian corn? This crop is grown
more generally, and with more certainty
tharrany other, and its actual productibn
far exceeds that of all other grains taken
together. , And yet a few pounds of
meal per month, for desert puddings, and
occasional other dishes, is about the ex
tent of the consumation of corn in the
great majority of the families in the
Northern States. Some families use
much more but these are exceptions to
the general rule. And yet, a bushel of
ground Corn affords quite as much health
ful nourishment, as a bushel of Wheat.—
A bushel of corn weighs 56 lbs., and a
bushei of wheat 60 lbs : but there is
more waste in grinrdngthe wheat, in the
form of bran andship stuff. Corn differs
from wheat, mainly, in having a little
less' gluten, and rather more oil and
starch. For the colder half of the year,
the . oil and starch of corn are better
ladapted to the wants of the body, than
thelargeamount of gluten in wheat.—
Corn contains all the elements needed
in the body, and in just about the pro
portion they are required in Winter,
while they are nearly suited for food in
warm weather. A bushel of corn con
tains four times as much nutriment as a
bushel of potatoes. .
We have just examined the market
prices of Wheat, Corn, and Potatoes,
in different parts of country. The ,ex
amination shows, first, that, taking the
country together, the' price of a bushel
of corn and a bushel of potatoes is about
the same, (they vary considerably in
some.localities, but not generally); and,
second, that a bushel of wheat sells for
2 times as much as a bushel of corn.—
We therefore find, that, on the average,
au amount of nourishment costing $1 in
the form of corn, costs $2 in the form
of wheat,•and $4 in the form of potatoes.
So, then, of three families itgaring the
same amount of nourishing food, what
would cost` one . s4o a year the form
of corn, would cost 'the second $lOO in
the form of`wheat, and the third SICO in
the form of potatoes.
Why, then, do not people consume
more corn ? Answer. Fashion or ens
tom has 'much influence; and ignorance
of the value of corn, or of good modes
, of cooking it, does the rest. TO do
away with the last named diihnulty; we
propose to give belle a considerable
variety of methods for preparing corn,
and corn meal, so at to mike them pal
atable. Of the healthfulness there- is
no doubt, and from ther inethods giv
en .below, every .houseviife can 'find one
or more that will suit the wants and
'taste of those whom she provides.
Thefollowing directions have all been
furnished expressly for this number of
the ..imerican Agriculturist. Each of
the several editors' families haVe been
called upon for contributions, and we
have each asked our friends for their
best recipes. Wife'emritten cook book
has been ransacked, and we have con
sulted mothers and aunts of the neigh
borhomi, noted' for_their good
Here is the result. (Their derivation
from so many sources, accounts for sev r
eral having the same heading.)
1. Hasty Pudding' or "Mush."—We
place this first as the most common and
most easily made. No one ever "took
sick" from eating, mush, and milk, or
fried mush in any suitable quantity.—
"Mush and milk" is seldom relished, be
cause few people know how to make the
musk. The whole secret Win cooking
it thoroughly. Rightly made It is not
"hasty pudding." A. well made "mush"
is one that has boiled not less than a
full hour. Two hours are better. The
meal needs to be cooked; then it is both
good and palatable. The -rule is : Mix
it very thin and boil it down, avoiding
any burning or scorching, and salt it
just right to suit the general taste.—
Prepare a good kettle full for supper,
to be eaten with milk; sugar, molasses,
syrup, or sweetened cream, or sweeten
ed milk. If a good supply be left to
cool, and be cut in slices and fried
well in the morning, the plate of wheat
en bread will be in little demand. It
must be fried well, not crisped, or burn
ed, or soaked in fat. If thoroughly
cooked in the kettle, it will only need
to be heated through on the griddle.--
If not cooked well in the kettle, longer
frying will be necessary.
2. Dry .Mush and Milk.—Parch corn
quite brown, grind it in a clean coffee
mill or pound it in a mortar, and let it
soak in warm milk until softened ; then
i f too thick, add more milk and eat when
cold. Or meal may be browned and
eaten in the , same manner.
3. Samp.—This is a good method of
using corn, and .a popular one when well
tried,--made not of the white hominy of
various grades of, coarseness. and sold in
smellltags in various stages of freshn6ss;
but, yellow corn fresh plucked from the
fields, or well prese'rved and but recent
ly crushed. (not ground) at the village
mill. It can be used with syrup or good
milk or sugar, or both. hasty
pudding it is good for the- second day.
The various grades of "hominy" are
very good articles of food bdt not so
cheap nor always so good as camp.
4. Boiled Indian Corn (ripe).—Take
common yellow corn, and boil. • it in -a
weak lye, until the hulls are broken and
easily slip off. I pour off the lye
and rinse the corn thoroughly. Boil it
until soft, in clear water, adding
salt: Eat with cream and sugar, or but

vegetable. • • t
