The easiest War to hold pearls in order to Drill or otherwise Cut them is to lit them loosely in holes bored in a piece of Wood. A few drops of water sprinkled about the aperture cause the Wood fibres to swell and hold the gems firmly. When the Wood dries the pearls fall out. Guns and aides May be easily Eleane d from Lead by the following if a Muz zoo loader Stop up to nipple or communication Hole with a Little Wax or if a Breech loader insert a Cork in Tho brooch rather tightly next pour sovino quicksilver into Tho barrel and put another Cork in the muzzle then proceed to Roll it up and Down the barrel shaking it about for a few minutes. The Mercury and Tho Lead will form an amalgam and leave Tho barrel As clean and free from Lead As Tho first Day it Camo upon them. The four Side stake for supporting roses and other plants May be utilized As labels by painting say six inches of the top White whilst the remainder looks Best Green. This top May then serve Tho same purpose As Tho above named . Vermin in fowls. There Are at least three different kinds of lice which infest poultry and their quarters. To do not now include icarus that produces what is known As v poultry itch and scabby or scurvy legs Etc there is Trio Large Louse found for the most part in the Heads of Young Chicks. This is quite destructive to Tho broods and by some it is supposed to be Tho Parent of Tho gape worm. Whether this supposition is True or not this Louse will certainly destroy Young Chicks unless it is removed and Tho broods protected from its attacks. Then there is Tho common body Lousy found mostly under Tho wings and the More inaccessible parts of the Akin. These Are perhaps the least noxious of any of the Dif Ivo Reut kinds but they evidently annoy Tho fowls and should not be allowed to remain on them. The third class of Lico is Tho Small red mite found Only in Tho House or roosting places and nests. These Are perhaps Tho most annoying and troublesome to the fowls of All and Aro More numerous than either of the Otho kinds they May be found in nearly All roosts and houses that Havo been used by fowls owe or More years where special care Lias not been exercised to exterminate them. They stay in crevices Oil Tho roosts or Walls and nest boxes during the Day and creep upon the fowls and feed at night. They Aro Seldom found on the fowls during Tho Day except on sitting hens. These Aro the ones tha Are so annoying to Tho brooding hens1 forcing them to abandon their nests. They to sometimes found in Groat numbers in Tho neglected quarters. N. V. Herald.

A Good Way to clean Black kid gloves is to take a Teaspoon Ful of salad Oil drop a Lew drop of Ink in it and rub it Over the gloves with the tip of a Feather then let them dry in the american. To i a event Clu we crusts . One plan is adopted at Tho factories to prevent the crusts of Tho cheese from cracking and getting in summer when the Ehe Ebo is taken out of Tho press and ready for removal to Tho room for ripening or curing As it is generally Puta circular piece of bin paper Liko Cap paper Cut the full size of the hat surface of the cheese Jyh Laid upon it and then a hot Flat Iron same As used in ironing our Linen is passed Over Tho paper to and fro several times until the paper is fully attached and almost forms part of Tho crust. This of course is done to both surfaces of Tho cheese. The rim is fully covered with a Calico Binder which is put on after the curd has been sufficiently Long in the cheese vat to make it solid enough to handle when it is taken out of the vat Tho Binder placed around it and then put into the press where it remains about the same length of Timo As is Given at . English paper. Convenient . One half Tho pleasure in growing our plants arises from Tho know Lego of their names and whence Thoy come. In fact to Desiro Somo Little memorandum that will remind us every Timo to look at them what their title is what their native country from whom procured and sometimes additional remarks of a explanatory character. An Ordinary Flat surface would have to to too Large and unsightly to we use a four sided stake one and Throe quarters inches in diameter planed smooth and painted White. Thoy should be about twelve or fifteen Nohos in length and pointed. When desired for use rub lightly Over the surface a thin boat of paint and write thereon with a Lead Pencil which will last for two or three seasons diff Tinoly. The four aided stake or Label is preferable As it is comparatively Incon Spirou on gives a greater amount of surface for writing upon and always looks neat. It is especially adapted for Rose Beds groups of flowering shrubs or masses of Hardy Border plants. True it has not the Merit of being imperishable in fact it should to replaced rather too frequently but we like Tho appearance of wooden labels and we Liko to write dysentery and other ailments Are often mistaken for this plague and Tho Bird dosed until it turns up its Toos and Tho carcass is almost As full of villainous compounds As a second class drug store. Drugs that have entirely different and oven opposite effects on Tho system Aro credited with having cured Tho worst cases of cholera Ono funny poultry Man who knew Tho Power of Printer s Ink asked through Tho columns of a leading journal for a cholera cure. He says to has received one Hundred and fifty nine sure cures and Tho Promise of seventeen More. True cholera does not differ much whether in Man or fowl runs very nearly a similar course and in a majority of cases the victim s Days Are numbered. Among the first symptoms Are diary Heck and thirst Tho Birds attacked hurrying to the drinking vessel and frequently never leaving it. The droppings Are first of a greenish character often quickly changing into the Rice water Aud the Sulphur and water discharges not widely differing from those attending the disease in the human patient. Rapid prostration comes ii and Trio fowl May to found lying near Tho drinking vessel too weak to walk. The Peculiar anxious look characteristic of cholera in the human subjects is said by Somo authorities to to noticeable. Cramps May Supervene and after some tumbling about the fatal termination occurs and Tho victim needs interment it is Mast Apt to occur in crowded Yards where the Birds Are exposed to the hot rays of the Sun and the sup Lily of drinking water becomes warm and filthy. In Ono instance that came under our observation the fowls had no water furnished them and were compelled to drink from dirty stinking pools around a Largo manure pile. In another decaying vegetable food was Tho exciting cause of disease. A neighbor kept his chickens in two blocks one had Access to n Patch of half Rotten melons and Tho cholera took off nearly everyone Whilo Tho other flock right alongside with the same care and feeding but no Chanco at the melons escaped almost entirely although Only a picket Fence separated them. Treatment if any must be afforded promptly. As the disease usually runs its course in from 12 to 30 hours but Little Timo is Given for treatment. It is almost sure to spend its fury in a few Days and leave Only a few Hardy Birds that stand Tho storm without the assistance of the doctor and if left alone might get through without medicines. Of course the first thing to be done is to remove the cause. Provido Cool Shade fresh water and proper food. Fumigate and Disi foot the fowl houses coops and roosting places. Bury Tho dead at once and the dying might As Well be hurried a Little so As to go with them. Then if you want to give some physio try Capsicum and Venetiou red mixed with soft food for those willing to eat or put a Grain of each into a Bolus or 1 read Pill and make the patient take Ono every two or four hours. If old school enough you May use Calomel and Bismuth Gram doses of each every few hours Brandy with As much water in Tea spoonful doses every hour or two has been recommended. Laudanum ten drops in a teaspoonful of Brandy and water has its advocates while Wright says about sixty per cent ought to get Well if treated in time by the use every three hours of rhubarb five grains Cayenne Popper two Grain and ten drops of laudanum. He also advises the use of Mcdougall s fluid Carolato in five drop doses with Brandy and Wate or tit Al it Ese. Geese Are naturally great wanderers and for that reason they require a Home of their own especially when Harvest time approaches does this need appear. If allowed to run they destroy More than they Are Worth. A Small piece of pasture Laud through which runs n Rook is Best calculated for geese even if Tho Brook in Small they will love it and with Sticks Anil leaves dam it up until they have a convenient place to Wade and dive they l Ove to keep clean. Enclose their Home with a Good Ronco during the laying season which commences As Early As March feed Corn buckwheat Oats Etc. If cooked and fed warm it is much better. Geese also dearly love crumbs from the table such As pancakes and potatoes Cut into Small pieces and fed warm feed this onco a Day and Tho above mentioned As much As Tho geese will eat without leaving any. A Little Salt in their food improves it and also a Quantity of clobbered milk if you have it added after the food is cooked. If you Havo no Nice Little House for the Goose to make her nest in Placo a barrel in an elevated pare of her lot or Home turn it on its Side place the open end toward the South put in a few quarts of Horbe manure Over this put plenty Straw Sho requires enough to Lay her eggs on and cover them with for Sho never leaves them uncovered. Our word for it Giosio will not refuse such a place for her nest at least to never knew her to. She generally lays two litters of eggs each season from five to twelve in a litter. When she shows signs of sitting give her twelve to thirteen eggs to sit upon do not let her sit before Tho Middle of april or better still the first of May. Goslings Are a tender Bird and do not thrive Well in Chil y weather. After Tho Goose has been setting Ono month look out for the goslings they Aro of a handsome Green color As they come out of Tho Shell and sit close to Tho Mother they Are a pretty sight. About that time the Gander will Light As if he meant to kill anything that comes graphic. Some remarkable Rifle practice. Though to Aren tall marksmen from Tho Cradle up As an Irish paper flattering by intimates it is yet True that there Aro a great Many men in this country besides Tho. American team that can draw a very Correct Bead on Small objects at Long Range. One of these is a elderly virginian named Beckwith Whoso exploits Are narrated by Tho Richmond whig. The old gentleman fired Soven times with an old Flint lock find Only missed his aim one. His i first attempt was at a potato held by Bis son Between his thumb Aud forefinger at a distance of fifty Yards. Tho Rifle cracked and Trio potato fell shattered in several places. One of Tho Small pieces was then thrown into the air Tho Marksman keeping at the same distance Aud again Tho shot told. An Inch Aud a half Auger was then produced Aud a Hole bored in Tho Ronco behind which was fastened a piece of White paper. At Tho distance of sixty Yards the Marksman sent a Ball Clear through Tho aperture piercing Tho paper at Tho fourth shot from sixty Yards distance Tho bowl of a pipe which the son was smoking was crushed. At the fifth shot n Copper cent was thrown in the air and hit. Tho sixth and seventh shots were delivered at a blackened five cent Nickel piece thrown up by Tho son standing about thirty Yards Oil. At Tho first attempt Tho shot missed. Tho old gentleman showed considerable mortification and Laid Tho blame on a bystander who at Tho critical moment squeezed loudly. Tho not attempt however was an on Tiro buc Cobb. Tho old Man declined any further trials of his skill Aud when offered a sum of Money to repeat his first feat of shooting a potato from his son s hand to refused saying he did t Caro to try any such Experiment rules his weapon was freshly cleaned. Tho customs receipts have steadily declined during Tho last two years. At Tho close of the fiscal year ending june 30, 1874, Tho receipts were in Tho neigh boyhood of 188,500.000. The following year Thoy fell off $25,000,000, and the sum total of the receipts for this year show a still further falling off of Somo 87,000,000. The Causa of this is explained partially by Tho commissioner of customs upon the ground of the Stato of business throughout Tho country. Thero is also a growing system of smuggling that adds Groat difficulties to the collection of Tho customs revenues. One of Tho easiest and Tho most secure methods of Srug glug is through the mails. Valuable laces no thus smuggled with impunity Thero will to presented to the next Congress a proposition to make postmasters cd offi Cio custom House Oili cers authorized to open suspicious letters and packages but this proposition if carried would give such Opportunity to tamp with Tho mails that it is not Likely to be received with favor. Ono of the favorite plans Mitno treas Ury department to Aid Tho customs revenues is to Havo Congress re enact the tax upon Tea and Coffeo. In the fiscal year ending Juno 30,1875, Tho receipts from the duty upon Coffee alone amounted to $10,1 00,098.77, and in the year following Tho year of Tho repeal Over 87,000,000. With Tho production of Tho Tariff Thero was no Cor responding reduction in the Price to the consumer so by the abolishment of the Tea and Coffeo tax it is claimed Tho government has lost an annual Revenue of Over $15,000,000, without a single consumer being benefited. The 8 kecei1ts. Tho customs Bureau has now All of Tho figures for Tho fiscal year ending june 30, 1875. Tho following is a Tabic prepared in the Treasury department where Tho warrants Aro held of the receipts from customs Revenue by Mouths As compared with Tho monthly receipts of last year.

Tho Story i will Tell As it was told to me without a guarantee of truth. Early last Tiprigan old woman dug up a pan full of dirt in which to Plant Flower seed. She put Tho pan under the stove not onco thinking of Grasshopper Oggs and went out to see a neighbor. Upon returning after an hour s , she found thousands of millions of Grasshoppers generated from Tho eggs by the heat literally eating her out of House and Home. They first attacked the Green shades on the windows and then a Green dust pan. A Green Irish servant girl asleep in one of Tho rooms was the next victim and not a vestige of her was left. The stove and stove pipe were next eaten and thou the House was torn Down so that they could get at the Chimney.
