TIic Rabbit on the Wall.
The cottage work is over,
The evening meal is done ;
Hark ! through the twilight stillness
Ycu hear the river run.
The little children whisper,
Then speak out one and all ;
Come, father, make for Johnny
The rabbit on the wall.

They gather round his chair;
"Now, grandma, you holcIJohnny
Don't let the candle flare."
So speaking, from his fiDgcrs
lie threw a shadow tali, 0
That seems the moment after,
A rabbit on the wall.
The children shout with laughter,
The uproar louder grows ;
Even grandma chuckles faintly,
And Johnny chirps and crows.
There ne'er was gilded painting,
Hung up in lordly hall,
Gave half the simple pleasure
Of this rabbit on the wall.
To a, Itlver,
Dark spirit, oh, listen ! thou that fiercely
So fierce and so impatient to be gone :
Is it fear, or some wild vengeance that thou
Or doth the fiend of madness drive thee on?

Thou art full of glorious passion from the
Aed in thy strength goest forth to conquer
Not thinking how thou must be overthrown.
Yet chafe not, noble river! nor seek to
Godis purpose in thee and thine own far
Lest those proud waves o'eifiow in sluggish

Pruning. Among need-
says the N. II. Fanner,
which every ilock-master must never

your best ewes. Tills IS the tun-
damental principle which must guide
you in all your labors, if you expeet
to carry the excellency of your flock
one degree higher each year. The
reasons for this rule are almost too ob
vious to require mention. Will any
man need to be told that if he sells h;s
ewes, the buyers of the sheep will have
better sheen than he? It a man with
one hundred ewes sells the ten best,
it takes years 01 carclul breeding to
get ten more as good as those he sold.
Many cannot resist a tejnpting offer
or a gooa ewe, but it should be re
membered that when you sell one
such, you sell with her all the valu
able increase for the future. When
you have succeeded in bringing your
ilock to such a degree of excellence
that you will not notice the loss of a
few of tho " number ones,'7 you can
sell from the first class ewes. But as
you must sell off the yearly increase
of the Hock, let such bo selected as
you do not wish to keep, and the pres
ent is the best time of the year to
make that selection. The winter is
the test of a sheep's constitution, and
if you have watched your flock with
care, you can at this season very

necessary vigor and staunchness to
make then: good breeders. Let all
such be pruned out ; fat them for the
butchei, or sell for what, they will not
just now enable them to buy higher
priced sheep. Set aside all that have
objectionable qualities as breeders
and put a mark upon them for future
disposal. A sheets may look well,
she may be stout and hearty, but at
the same time she may breed badly
JMake all such into mutton. Cut them
off as you would useless limbs from
your fruit trees. You can't afford to
keep such animals anv more than ycu
can keep a frog pond in the middle
of an cere of good laud. Ine man
who makes his selection of sale ewes
in tho autumn, will often cheat him
self, lor the season that many poor
breedersaud poor nurses will look
plump and stout just because they
have starved their lambs. A sugges
tion on this point is enough for anv
careful flock-master, and a moment's
reflection wj'.l show any one the im
portance of attending to tho matter
in the proper season.
House Shaving. Recently, says

They are eight in number, and ap

A machine for working butter is
one of the new inventions in England.
It consists of a movable metal cylin
ner, suspended from a small cast iron
frame. - The bottom of the cylinder
is a loose piece of galvanized iron,
and above it the cylinder is suspend
ed in a bowl of water, and the butter
is placed in3 the cylinder and pressed
by a screw piston, the result of which
is, that the butter is forced through
the holes into the water in the shape
of vermicelli. By this means the
buttermilk is all excluded, and the
butter is found to bo much closer
and sweeter than when made by
Restoring Rancid Lard There
was an inquiry over a year ago, what
would cleanse rancid lard. Pot
skimmings, rancid lard, or bacon fat
may be made sweet by being put in
a kettle; adding two or three pota
toes, pared and sliced, aud letting
them fry in the grease until they are
browned. Your grease or lard will
then be free from all unpleasant
taste, and suitable for shortening, or
to fry donghnuts in.

I would inform persons laboring under
Cancer, that my wife has for a number'of
years had a cancer on her left breast, until
the three years last past, when it commenced
growing, slowly at first, but during the past
summer its progress became more Vapid. It
was giving herconsiderable pain, when, on
the 17th of last month she went under treat
ment by Dr. Henley of Portland. By his
method of treatment the entire cancer was
removed from the sound flesh, and on the
2tfth of the same month it came away without
pain. The sore is fast healing up, and I hope
a complete cure is effected. Her suffering
for the first 21 hours under treatment was
considerable. She has suffered but little
since, and is now entirely free from pain.

been effected by Dr. J. 1L Josselyn, the r
Resident Physician of the Institute during
the past six years, has gained for this es
tablishment a reputation that has never been
equalled by any medical establishment on
this coast. In cases of female irregularities

Glad to Hear It. For several months
past Dr. J. 11. Josselynfor the last six years
so well known as the Resident Physician of
the Electropathic Institute, 645 Washington'
street, San Francisco, has co'ntemplatecb re-'
tiring from his position for the purpose of
accepting the position as Yisiting Physician
in one of the large hospitals in his "native
State, Massachusetts. The matter becoming
known to a number of scientific gentlemen
ofSan Francisco, who, feeling what a great
loss would occur to the community-by the
withdrawal of a physician of such scientific
attainments as Dr. Josselyn, a meeting "was
called at which resolutions highly laudatory
of the Doctor's abilities were passed, and a
committee of gentlemen appointed to wait
upon him, preseni the resolutions, and urge
himjogiveup his intention ofleaving the
State1, and continue m his present position.
The arguments of the committee facilitated
by certain pecuniary propositions, made by
the Directors of the Institute, having induc
ed the Doctor to return his position as Resi
dent Phj-sician. We announce the success
ot the negotiations win satisfaction, aseit
would have been difficult for the numerous
patients that heretofore relied on the Doctor "
for scientific and successful treatment ft

former period of their lives, to read the ad
vertisement ot the Elect ropatbie Institute, to

II. Josselyn, the Resident Physician, hasoc- "
cupied that position for six years, and tak-"
ing into consideration the "fact that all the
Directors of the Institute are all medical
men of high standing in the community, it
may be considered as proof of Dr. Josseiyu's
ability that he has been retained in the posi
tion so long. dv. josselyn is a reirular grad
uate, and is also considered by competent
judges to be the most scientfic and success
ful electrican m the United States: he will
cure more than half the diseases that flesh i
heir to without the use of any medicine in
all cases where it is deemed necessary, but
never uses anything but vegetable prepara
tions. The doctor hasobeen very successful
in his treatment of diseases incident to fe
males, and enjoys a much larger practice in
that particular line than any other physician
on the Pacific coast. The Electropisthic In
stitute is located on one of the most popular
streets in San Francisco, the rooms for tho
reception of patients are fitted up in a style
of magnificence never before attempted "by
any medical establishment on this coast, and
the Institute is rated in San Francisco as the
best in the city. Mountain Democrat.
The Best is the Cheapest. This adage
will apply as well to the practice of medi
cines as to the purchase of merchandise.
Thousands on this coast, during the past
fifteen years, have had tiieir constitutions
ruined by refusing treatment at the hands of
first-class physicians, simply because a gang
of humbugs, styling themselves doctors, and
who are almost destitute of common sense, .
much more of medical knowledge, offer to
treat those who are sick for a less sum than
a regular practitioner. A man that would
allow a quack to administer medicine to
him, is worse than an idiot, for, in nine cases
out of ten, the medicine so given, instead of
curing the disease, makes the patient worso
and does permanent injury to the system,
and oftentimes to such an extent as to pre
vent the possibility of curing the original .
disease. The fact is, that no person should '
place himself in charge of a physician unless
he has strong proofs that the doctor is a
regular graduate from somo well reputed--.
