How to save your shoe souls. It
consists merely in melting together
tallow and resin, in the proportion
ot two parts of the former to one
part of the latter, and applying the
preparation, hot, to the soles of the
shoes or boots, as much as the leath
er will absorb.
Hot milk is a specific fordiarrluc.
A pint every four hours will check
the most violent diarrhw, stomach
ache, incipient cholera or dysentery.
In fact so much should rarely be
given, as it causes subsequent con
stipation. Haifa pint every meal
generally reduces gradually ami
pleasantly any ordinary QiarrUBJ.
I It lias been proved by exper
! imont that the more rapidly an ani
i mat is fattened the less quantity of
food is necessary to sustain ite mere
vitality. Thus an animal is more
! cheaply fattened by consuming ten
! bushels id corn in two months, than
j if four months were occupied in the
process. I ,ilx?ral and abundant toed
is the most economical, and a sav
ing in producing the same result
is a gain in the profit.
How a Dutchman got Even.
One time there lived a jovial
Dutchman whose name was Hannes
Yon Shrimpetiffel. He had a wife.
He also had a little grocery, where
beer and such personal property
was sold. 1 le gave credit to a par
cel of dry customers and kept his
lwok with a piece of white chalk on
the headboard of his bedstead.
One day Mr Shiimpetifl'el, in a
neat fit, took it upon herself to clean
house and things. So she did, and
she cleaned the headboard, and soap
and water settled the old man's ac
counts by wiping away every chalk
Pretty soon the old vender of
things camento the house and saw
what ruin his frau had wrought.
Then he said :
"Meiit Gott, Frau Shrimpetiffel,
what for you make a ruined man of
me I guess not ? You make vipe
away alfdem name and figures what
I owe dem fellers what's going to
nav mo before dev set ready, an' I
lose more than swei hunit tollar,
ain't it !"
His frau left the room in fear and
disgust. When she returned he
had covered the head-lward with
chalk marks. Then she said :
"Hannes, you make dem all right
again, don't it?"
"Veil, my frau, I make do fig
ures all, but I put down some pet
ter names as dem oder fellers vot
yon vipe out I"
Mr. Seward's Mistake.
.Tames Brooks writes to a New
York paper from China: "They
tell a good story in Pekin of Gov.
Seward when here doubtless a lie,
but too good a story to be lost for
that. The ex pecta tions of the ex
Governor were doubtless great
when he entered the great capital
empire, with which he had made a
iireat treaty, and he therefore in
dulged in the great expectation
of a great welcome. As he entered
the gates of l'ekin, a great funeral
procession was coming out, with
music, catafalque, etc., etc., all as
imposing as a grand procession of
some "rent dead man could well bo
made. The Governor was entering
with the marine baml of the Colo
rado, mounted on donkeys, as the
srand procession was going out.
The great living and tlie great dead
thus mrt. The Governor naturally
enougl concluded this in honor of
his Baud entree, and he rose in his
open sedan chair, and bowed, and
then ordered a halt, and got out
and bowed, and bowed again, totlie
catafalque and the dead. The Chi
nese think all foreigners arc rather
mad, and hence did not marvel over
it as much as they might, but when
Governor Seward found out what
he had done, the story is he was
more mad than pleased."
Working and Fattening Food.
Wc begin to tbiug 'that the old
distinction between the food of a
working and a fattening animal
must soon be abandoned, and
that it will be found that the tool
which is best adapted for a bullock
kept close to the plow is also that
which is most likely to put up meat
on a fattening bullock, and to stim
ulate the lacteal ' secretion in the
milch cow. The recent mTCStiga-
tions of Voit, Htwriiton, Fiek
WisJicemns, and others prove that
fat and other non-nitrogenous foods
are those chiefly nsed in maintain
ing the motions of the body. I f the
results ot these physiologists' inqui
ries be accepted, then it is quite evi
dent that Jiorses should be fed on
food rich in "lat-fonning" lements
of nutrition. Wo should, if this
view be correct, feed our horses,
then, on Indian com and oil-cake,
rather thim upon beans and oats.
An old primitive Methodist
preacher who was going to preach in
the little chapel at Bristol, got so
wet that he had to borrow a pair of
unmentionables from his host,
who had but his everyday breeches
at liberty, which, unknown to both,
were occupied by a colony of ants.
As the old gentleman warmed in
the service, the ants got more and
more lively, ami very soon after he
commenced his sermon the itch be
came intolerable, aisl no amount of
scratching appeased it. Not know
ing how to account for it, but find
ing it impossible to go on, lie stop
ped and said : "My friends, I am
sure 1 have got grace in my heart,
but I believe the devil's in my
