FARM, GARDEN AND HOUSEHOLD. \ - The Bert Dalr r Breed*. ^ The introduction of the-fc«st breeds of dairy cattle to this country from Europe should not only greatly improve our dairy cattle generally, but the fact that those 'cows have been brought to their present state of excellence only by the best of care and handling, and the knowledge that without this same care they are sure to fall off in their good qualities* in our Thands should stimulate our dairymen not only to possess those improved breeds, ( but to so improve their methods of farm- ing and handling that there will be no danger of deterioration in the breeds. With the interest now being taken in Jerseys and Holsteins, there is every indi- cation that instead of their being a fall- ing off there is every hope and evidence of marked improvement not only in the \breed but in the method of handling.— American Dairyman. Tl e Hoe in Growing Crops. It has not been such a long time ago since the implements used in tending corn by horse power were so few and so rudely constructed that the hoe was looked upon as indispensable to the work. But now that these implements have become so di- versified, as well as better constructed, the hoe is thrown aside as no longer nec- essary. Men are so prone to accept of any theory that will enable them to live with less labor, that farmers have readily caught at the idea that all that was nec- essary to insure a crop of corn is to throw earth enoug\h to it with the plow to cover up the weeds. But that this is not all that is necessary we shall now endeavor to show. We start out, then, with the es- tablished fact, well-known to all, that the more the ground is stirred the better will be the crop. And why? Simply because the ground is then kept in its best condition to absorb moisture dfwell as fertilizing matter from the atnWphere, with both of which it is always filled. Not only so, but by the frequent stirring of the soil it is placed in its best con- dition to draw up, through capillary attraction, moisture, as well as soluble mineral matter from below. But some may ask, why may not all this be accom- plished by the plow? We answer, so it could if, by plowing, the whole surface of the ground was kept mellow: but as the plow throws the mellow surface all into ridges, leaving thfi spaces between as compact and hard as ever, the power of the ground to absorb is thereby dimin- ished rather than increased, and in so far the crop is damaged. \\ It is on this principle that summer fal- lowing is so beneficial to wheat. By this additional stirring of the ground it is put in better condition to absorb and hold the fertilizing matter floating in the at- mosphere, especially when supplemented with a little plaster. The best chemical authorities tell us that the main use of plaster to Vjggetetipn is its power to attiitct amMonia fr%okj&fiv,4£rnosphere and 'fix\ it in the ground for tfce^use, of plants. How t&e more the soil is pul- verized the more its absorptive power is Increased, and therefore the better i enaOied to extract fertility from the^ atmosphere. This fertility consists i of gases emanating from decaying Testable and animal substances, and which, being brought down by the rains nnd snows, are deposited on the surface of the earth, and the more the absorptive power of the latter is increased the more of this fertilizing matter it in- corporates. It is evident, then, that the greater the area of surface pulverized the greater the amount of fertilizing matter absorbed, and which is best done by the use of the hoe; not in throwing the pul- verized ground into ridges, but in mel- lowing the whole surface, as well as in killing the weeds. Weeds in a corn-hill are like parasites on an animal, drawing the life-blood out of it, and not to use the hoe in their extermination is the very way to establish them on the farm.— Bal- timore Sun. Farm and Garden Notes. Give salt to ewes. Eggs absorb bad odors. Tobacco dust kills sheep ticks. This ought to be a good apple year. - Plant asparagus roots six inches deep. Apricots may be bleached by sulphur fumes and then dried in the sun. 1 An Indiana horseshoer makes his shoes for interfering high on the inside. 1 Mr. Marshall P. Wilder heads peach trees, when planted, down two feet. An fndiana fruit grower puts moles in his strawberry patch to kill the grubs. The Rural New Yorker recommends blue grass for low lands subject to over- flow. A New York horseshoer says never cut the heel unless it grows faster than the toe, which should be short. It is worth while for farmers to see what can be done with their land under the most favorable conditions. Take one acre or a smaller area, manure heavily, cultivate thoroughly and then make an estimate whether like treatment of all the farm would not give greater profit than is secured at present. The roots of mo3t crops spread so rapidly through the soil that broadcast surface manuring, well cultivated in, will give better results than putting it all in the hill. Where the soil is fertile, but naturally cold and slow, a little manure in the hill will prove profitable by giving young plants an early start. A large udder in a cow is commonly regarded as a sign of a good milker, but excessive size indicates a deposit of flesh which is of no advantage, but rather a burden for the overweighted animal to carry. If the milk, veiijs are well de- veloped the cow will be a good milker, and the udder will be as large as is of any advantage. Without doubt, the way to get the heaviest yield of potatoes from a small arearage is to plant in drills, placing tne sets one to one and one-half feet apart in rows from two and one-half to three feet aDart, according to variety. But the bulk of potatoes for market are planted where land is cheaper and more plentiful than labor, and it is, therefore, economy to make hills with rojvs both ways. The vegetable matter in all muck has a certain value on sandy or gravelly soils which need more humus to enable them to retain fertility. The fanner who owns a muck bed near a sandy knoll, as many do, can hardly mistake in trying the ef- fect of the muck as a top dressing. Whether it will prove valuable for soil not naturally deficient in veget able mat- ter, depends on the character and compr> sition of the muck. Some kinds of muck abound in mineral elements, and these are everywhere valuable. It is very rare in farming that any single experiment can be regarded as conclusive. This is especially true of the cultivation and manuring of crops. Dif- ference in season will make one manure mure helpful during one season, while something else proves better the next. In the same *year there may be wider variations in the fertility of portions of the same field than the experimenter ! suspects. It requires several years of | careful study of a farm, and repeated experiments, to make results at all certain. The curb or hip robf to a barn is a new device for getting increased space above the posts. It is best adapted to farmers who use horse hay forks which will nil this increased space with comparatively little increase of expense. If hay or grain has to be pitched up in these high lifts by hand power it costs too much to make | the greater space gained of any advan- tage. The larger number of posts inside the barn are an objection, except in situ- ations where they are needed to £jive more strength to resist A#inds. j A Georgia farmer gives the following I remedy or rather preventive in the mat- ; ter of hog cholera: I feed my hogs on | buttermilk and kitchen slops. Every i week I throw dish-water over them. I have not lost a hog in ten years by cholera^ While my neighbors' hogs have died oPit, mine have been healthy. I keep a barrel near the cook-room back window and pour -all the slops into that; my hogs are fed on it once a day. They are free from lice and kept in a healthy condition all the time. The grease and soapsuds keep their bowels in good con- dition. Household Recipe* and Hint*. To remove the stain of perspiration apply a strong solution of soda and rinse in cold water. The yellow stains on the margin of j engravings may be removed by a solution j of hydrochloric!e of soda. J Swansdown may be washed in soap ! and water; after washing shake it out, | and when the down is somewhat raised : shake it before the fire till dry. 1 To insure the cracking of pork being 1 crisp and eating short, just before the pork is done moisten the skin all over with a little butter, dredge it with flour, and place it near the fire to brown. Take some sardines, carefully skin and bone them, lay them on slices of buttered toast, with a few drops of lemon juice j and put them into the* oven with a but- tered paper over them to get quite hot. Serve at once. Cut some smoked salmoa in the very thinnest possible slices; lay them neatly on pieces of buttered toast, sprinkle with pepper and jiut into the oven, with a piece of buttered paper over them, just long enough to get quite hot. Fish almost more than anything else, is improved by slow cooking; especially is this true when the fish is boiled. If cooked rapidly it will fall apart, and will neither taste nor look so TBBU. The grant poiat insisted upon by scientific COOKS of the present day is this of taking abun- dant time to prepare food in, and the fact that nothing is gained by rapid boiling. A common fruit and spice cake is made of one cup of butter, two cups of sugar; beat these to a cream, then add two well beaten eggs, the whites and yolk beaten together, a large handful of currants, a quarter of a pound of citron cut in small bits, one teaspoonful each of grated nutmeg, of cinnamon, and of cloves, half a cup of sour milk with a quarter of a teaspoonful of soda dissolved in it, and three cups of flour. This cake requires nearly an hour for baking, in a moderate oven. A common loaf pudding may.be varied and so be made appetizing. Make the pudding after this receipt; One cup of granulated sugar, one cup of sweet milk, ,one egg, and a piece of butter the size of the egg, two teaspoonfuls of baking powder, flour to make it like cake dough; put a layer of this in the tin, then a layer of jam, then another of the doug^i, and so on until the tin is half fulffiisrTe at least two layers of fruit, and have dough on the top. This will need to bake longer than if without fruit, and when it begins to brown on the top it is best to lay a paper over it for ten min- utes. The Washington Capitol. The capitol fronts the east, and stands on a plateau ninety feet above the level of the Potomac. The southeast corner-stone of the original building was laid on Sep- tember 18, 1798, by President Washing- ton, aided by the Freemasons of Mary- land. It was constructed of sandstone, painted white, from an island in Aquia creek, Virginia, under the dilution of Stephen H. Hallett, James Hoban, George Hadfield, and afterward of B. H. Latrobe, architects. The north wing was finished in 1800 and the south wing in 1811, a wooden passage-wav connecting them. On August 24, 1814\the interior cf both wings was destroyed by British incen- diaries, but they were immediately re« built. In 1818 the central portion of the building was begun \ihdcf the architec- tural superintendence of Charles Bulfinch, and the original building was finally com- pleted in 1827. Its cost, including the grading of the grounds, alterations, and repairs, up to 1827, was $2,433,844.13. The corner-stone of the extensions to the capitol was laid on July 4, 1851, by Presi- dent Fillmore, Daniel Webster officiating as orator of the day. Thomas U. Walter was architect, and subsequently Edward Clark, under whose direction the work was completed in November, 1867. The materials used for the extensions is white marble from the quarries at Lee, Massachusetts, with white marble col- umns from the quarries of Cockeysvilie, Maryland. The dome of the original central building was constructed of wood, but was removed in 1856, to be replaced by the present stupendous structure of cast iron, which was completed in 1865. The entire weight of iron used is 8,909,200 pounds. The main building is 352 feet lour inches long in front and 121 |pet six inches deep, with a portico 160 feet wide, * of twenty-four columns on the east, and a projection of eighty-three feet on the west, embracing a recessed portico of ten coupled columns. The extensions are placed at the north and south ends of the main building, with connecting corridors forty-four feet long by fifty-six feet wide, flanked by columns. Each extension is 142 feet e'ight inches in front by 228 feet ten inches deep, with porticos of twenty- ty-two columns each on their eastern fronts, and with porticos of ten columns on their ends and on their western fronts. The' entire length of the building is 751 feet four inches, and the greatest depth, including porticos and steps, is 324 feet. The area covered by the entire building is 153,112 square feet. The dome is crowned by a brown statue of Freedom, modeled by Crawford, which is nineteen WISE WORDS. upation makes one sharp id dull in every other.

Honest and courageous people have very little to say about either their cour- age or their hoDesty. Where the people are well educated, the art of piloting a state is best learned from the writing of Plato. As ceremoney is the invention of wise men to keep fools at a distance, so good breeding is an expedient to make fools and wise men equals. Oh. strange caprice of fate, that a ship which has outlived the lightnings and tempests of the sea, should be wrecked in a quiet harbor at last! Whether religion be true or false, it must be necessarily granted to be the only wise principle and safe hypothesis for a man to live and die by. To be happy, the passions must be cheerful and gay, not gloomy and melan- choly. A propensity to hope and joy is real riches; one to fear ana sorrow, real poverty. The every-day cares and duties, which men call drudgery, are the weights and counter-poises of the clock of time, giv- ing its pendulum a true vibration, and its hands a regular motion.

Ihrie, formerly of the army, but wli8 is now a mining engineer in Boston, is trying to get up a company for the connection of the Northern Pacific railroad with Alaska. He says that the mining regions and the fur trade of the section to be opened up by this proposed line will fully warrant its construction. He also believes that a system of snow sheds can be protected from the heavy snowfalls of the severe winter, but Gene- ral Ihrie would not have his line stop at Alaska. He says that the Russians are already beginning to cross Siberia with railroads. It is only a question of time when St. Petersburg will be connected by rail with, the coast at Behring's strait. China will in time have a railroad line along the eastern coast line. General Ihrie would have huge ferryboats connect at the narrow- est point of Behring strait with the two railroad lines when the water was open. Huge sleds could be used in winter. When all this is brought about passen- gers can take a Pullman through car for Europe for at least six moatks in the year. General Ihrie believes the Euro- pean traffic would b% very heavy. Many people do not go to Europe because of their fear of the dangers of the sea. The greater time required for an all-rail jour- ney to Europe would be compensated by the variety of country seen and the greater safety insured. All rail to China would be possible under this system. General Ihrie bplieve3 that this railway project is one of the certain thing's to occur in the next twenty-five year3 at any rate. Hiches, without meekness and thank- fulness, do not make any man happy; but riches with them remove many cares and I fears. Therefore my advice is, that you j endeavor to be honestly rich or content- fedlypoor; but be sure that your riches be justly obtainpd or you spoil all. For it is said: \He that loses bis conscience has nothing left that is worth keeping.\ 287 feet eleven inches; the height from the top of the balustrade of the building is 217 feet eleven inches, and the greatest diameter at the base is Vdo feet five inches. The rotunda is ninety-five feet six inches in diameter, and its heignt from the floor to the top of the canopy is 180 feet three inches. The Senate chamber is 112 feet in length by eighty-two feet in width and thirty feet in height.

The JLiterjL of Congress was burned by *li* British in 1814, and was partially destroyed tf an accidental fire in 1851. The present cen- ter hall was finished in 1853, and the wing halls were finished in 1867. Buzzards in a Southern City. A Charleston (S. C.) correspondent says: Well do I recall a visit made early in the morning to the city market one year ago, and my surprise to see such flocks of these ungainly birds hopping about, picking up the scraps. The mar- ket-keeper, noticing my interest, com- municated to me marvelous stories of their intelligence, and what I then saw was really corroborative in part of his story. The birds were collected on the peaked roof of the market-house, and they did not seem to be in any hurry to come down to the street to gather the scraps of meat which the butchers had rejected. I asked him j why they did not—were they afraid ? i \He hasn't come yet, sur!\ \\Who,?\ \Why the inspector, sur. Them buz- zards don't dare touch nothin' till he in- spects,\ and presently he spoke up, \Here he comes,\ and I looked up the street, marveling much what kind of a yarn I was getting, for what had a market inspector to do with a lot of carrion birds? My confidence was fast vanishing. \Not there, sur, up there; don't you see him? n All I saw in the direction he indicated was a few buz- zards flying toward the market. \That's him—watch him.\ I saw a buzzard alight on the roof, and the color of his Art Regions and Tribes. Raymond Lee Newcomb, the naturalist of the Jeannette expedition, in the Long Island Historical society's hall in Brook- lyn, gave a familiar talk about \Arctic regions and tribes.\ Mr. Newcomb first described the natives of St. Michael's island. Their habits, he said, had in a great measure been explained to him by Alexai, who was himself one of the na- tives, and who became a member of the crew. He described Alexai as so much of a man as to have laid down his life for his commander. The inhabitants of St. Michael's had, like people all over the world, a place of general resort or rendez- vous, where they took it easy, smoked, danced or worked on skins, according to their inclinations. The lecturer gave a description of their huts, which, he said, were rough, barren structures, with a hole eight feet square in the middle for the fire, arid seats made of logs on which the- occupants perched themselves. The women in sewing used knives instead of scissors. Tobacco was in great demand among the natives. .Except in rare in- stances it was not manufactured tobacco, ore amulets and pieces of bone in parts of the face. He remem- bered Alexai to have put a collar button in his mouth, and to have seen it come out of one of the holes in his face. The children wear beads of .all colors and kinds. He saw little girls with strings of glass beads hanging from their noses and ears. As far as work went the women did their share. The administra- tion of public affairs was looked after mostly by the men. An ordinary day on the Jeannette was then described. There was a sameness about everything that transpired on board. For breakfast they had oatmeal and canned mutton, and for a great while po- head was different. It was reddish, and I did see this fellow then down he came to t presently the whole of the flock fol- lowed. Tftenib.ertr~wiis.8tt Michael's salnit/,, ^nd while it and the potatoes lasted tEV mw'fi were immensely enjoyed. When they had to rely altogether on the canned mutton their appetites fell off. Fresh flour was aboard a,nd tne steward knew how to make excellent bread. After leaving the ship the butter, bread and sugar disappeared from the meals. How a Bi? City Was Bought. A Melbourne letter to the San Fran- cisco Chronicle contains this: Recently, in the Melbourne public library—a mag- nificent institution — I inspected two formal legal deeds, by which eight chiefs conveyed to John Batman, the \William ; j apanne d Penn \ of Victoria, 600,000 acres, \more | K- Y- .
