Horset5Tables. A writer in the
Mai& Farmer offers the following
suggestions in regard to the building
of stables: It is a fault with most.
stables that they are built for men
rather than for horses. CVe wish to
point iffc tveo common errors into
which not a few builders are liable
to fall in constructing stables, espe
cTafly those upon farms. he first
is in having the doors and upper floors
so lo?? as they generally are. On ac
count of these low doors horses in
stinctively learn to fear them, and
they shy, rear or prance whenever
led toward them. They are also
among the most frequent causes of
poll-evil. The horse, when passing
through them, is either, surprised by
something.it beholds outside the bail
ding, or checked by tht voice or ges
ture of the person leading them
when up goes the had and crash goes
the pole against the beam of the door
way. A violent bruise often results
there from, and a deep seated abscess
cfollows. Logf' hay floors also pro
duce the same trouble. The sudden
elevation of the head is, in the horse,
expressive of very sudden omQtian.
This effect- is always noticed when
evercyou enter-; the stable rapidly or
at an unusual hour. A saddS noise
will also causeQ the same upward
motion of the head. With low sta
bles an injury to the horse is almosf
invariably sure to fallow.
Again, the easiest position in which
the horse can stand. i when the biftd
feet are the highest portion of $ieho$'f
orhen the flooring of the stall slants
in exactly the opposite direction from
what it does hi most stable.?. This is
- the other error in constructing stables
tp which wo alluded. Horses at lib
erty In a pasture invariably stand,
when at case, with their hiad feet
elevated somewhat andit h almost a
wonderathat builders of stables have
not improved u-J)on this fact Ifefore,
and adopted floors to the wants of the
horse The moisture from he horse,
if the floor slanted toward the forward
fegt, would helpeto eep the forward
feet moist, cool and healthy, whereas
theydare now generally hot, futl of
fever, and require washing with cool
soapsuds at least oncei day, b order
to be kept in a healthy condition.
This is not all. Where. th floor
slants-back, thehrse not unfrequent
y attempts to ease the heavy strain
upon the flexor tendons of the hind
legs by hanging back upon the halter.
The pressurepon the seat of the poll
stops natural circulation, and in time
it develops its-ejf into a deep0 seated
abscess. We would Jike to see a
str ye in which the two errors" in buiK
ding Ve have painted out did not
occur. If the builder was not satis
lied with it we are sure, the occupant
would be, and would repay him by
long yeafs of good service gvith un
straine limbs and a healthy system.
Easy Method of Sharpening
Edge Tooss. The simplest method
q sharpening a razor or other edge
tool, is t'd place the blade for about
a half hour in water containing l-20th
o of its weight of sulphuric or muriatic
acid. Upon taking tha razor out,
wipe it off lightly on a piece of soft
rag; and iu a few hours afterwards
"set" it on a strop. The acid sup
plies the place of a whetstone, by cor
roding tha. entire .surface uniformly,
" so that nothing but ji good polish is
0 afterwards needed. This process
never injures good razors, whilst roor
ones arc often improved by it. Ex
SupRfOH Wheat. A few years
ago Mr. Meade Weeks, of Ggnoa, N.
I., while harvesting, discovered a
single ead of wheat which was un
like any other in the field. The seed
has Been carefully cultivated, till it
has become considerably spread over
a territory of fifteen or twenty mt'es
around. It is highly, spoken of in
hp Albany Cultivator, as a new va
riety of white vhutof superior qual
ities. R is early, productive, and
makes excellent flour.
-To make crra-
hambread, sift the flour, and mix
it with cold water or butter, with
Oveei milk, as thick as you can stir
readily. Dp into small pans until
about ialf full, and bake in a quick
oven. Use no salt, for it makes it
heavy. If the crusts arc too hard,
dip t?hem nf cold water when you
take tera frota the oven.
To Make Pop-Corsi Balls.
Parch ibf corn in , a kettle; While
it is hot pour in some moktsses of
good quality. Keep it ofi the fire and
stir brisSl v. After stirring five or
ten minutes, take the corn off the fire,
aod as it co6T, form it into balls with
thcBhands IIaveready some corn
parched in the usual way, and roll
the warm ball in it.

Healthfulness of Apples.
There is scarcely an article of veget'
able food more widely useful and more
universally liked than the apple; why
every farmer in the nation has cot an
apple orchard, where the trees will
grow at all, is one of thej mysteries.
Let" every housekeeper lay in a good
supply of apples, and it will be the
most economical investment in the
whole range of rulinaries. A raw,
mellow apple is digested in an hour
an a half,while boiled cabbage requires
five hours. The most healthy desert
that can be placed on a table" is an
apple. If eaten frequently at break
fast, with course bread and s butter,
without meat or flesh of any kind, it
has an admirable effect on the general
syst&m, often removing constipation,
correcting acidities, and cooling off
febrile conitions more effectually than
the most approved medicines. If fam
ilies could be induced to substitute
apples sound and ripe for pies,
cakes and sweetmeats, wth which
their children are too frequently stuffed
there would be a dimtmiton in the
sum total of doctor's bills, in a single
year, sufficient to lay in a stock of this
delicious fruit for the whole season's
Raising Chickens. Several years
ago having but five hens, and wnntirg
a large flock of chickens in the fall, 1
tried the following method: While
hatching 1 took the chicks from the
hens, put them in a small pen with
good shelter, and a warm corner to
run under. I then put eggs under
the l?en, and in three weeks I had an
other brood, which went to the same
pen. The hens were shut up a few
days and then let loose, and soon be
gan to lay again. In one or two ca
ses I reset the third time, giving the
hen a session of nine weeks and three
hatchings, without injury. Thus I
hatched 150 chicks, and had good
luck raising them.
Bayard Taylor, while recently camp
ing out in tlKJ Rocky mountains, Col
oradoexperienced three distinct elec
trie shocks ; probably, he says, from
the fact that he was insulated by the
Iudia rubber cloth upon which he
was lying, and then touched the
earth with his hand. On the snowy
ranges persons are often so charged
that there are sparks and crackling
sounds at every movement of their
bodies. Men unacquainted with the
phenomenon imagine that bees have
gotten into their hair, and that rattle
snakes arc at their heels. Many
strange stories are told of the effect
of the fluid, which seems to manifest
itself in an excentric but not a danger

An interesting Letter,
Very few persons, even among physicians,
would have been willing upon any terms to
have been in the condition of the writer of
the following letter on the 14th of February
I last. 1 will anticipate somewhat his report
of the facts by saying that on the 15th of
August he made me a visit, " the very pic
ture of good health." Time, which tries
and proves all things, has sufliciently tested
this case, and s&own that neither relapse nor
collapse have followed, the cure is perfect,
and can b cited among the scores c4 similar
cases the result of my improved nod of
treating diseases without medicine.
(. M. BOURNE,
Water Cure Physician,
No. 10, Masonic Temple, Post street.
Sacramento, April SO, 1S65.
Dr. G. M. Bourne Dear Sir : D is with
pleasure and satisfaction that 1 now let you
know of my good health. Leaking back
upon what 1 have passed through, it seems
as if I had been lilted from the grave, and I
think it my duty o acknowledge to you and
the world the benefit I derived frojivater
treatment as administered by yon in your
celebrated biths. It was in August 1S64,
when disease developed itself with a sftvere
Vough. I then took medicine, getting
worse with chills, fevers, loss of strength,
and was pronounced consumptive. This
set me to thinking, and finally I determined
to leave my business and go to the Sandwich
Islands, having been informed that I could
not be cured here. I Trent to San Francisco,
and while waiting far a ship called upon Dr.
I)urne, who stated that a trip to the islands
would probably result disastrously, was
wholly unnecessary, as I could b speedily
cured at his establishment. I placed myself
nnder his treatment, and in one week was
so much improved I thought I could risk re
turning home and do my duty as Engineer
on ;f he Central Pacific Railroad. - The Doc
tor objected, but I thought 1 knew better,
and returned to duty.- In about two weeks
my cough returned, anJ I kept getting
worse, and contrary -to Dr. Bourne's injunc
tiou never to kke medicine Again, committed
that folly, and soon was so completely run
down that I could scarcely; walk ; so as a
last resort, I concluded once more to try the
Water Cure, 1 went to San Francisco few
of my friends expecting me to return;- iu
fact I thought my return doubtful. On ar
riving at Dr. Bourne's establishment (Feb.
18(35) I was not able t set into tebe bath
without assistance, but in a lew days I began
to recover mysclfagain. I remained with
him only six weeks, f hen I felt a "wiser
and better man," without the aid of mcdi-'
cine. I have bow been eat work several
weeks, and iind that I afti gaining every day
and at present bid fair to be stouter than
ever bstore. Persons visiting ihe Doctor's
establishment find it just what itsbould be,
both in the Ladies' and Gentlemen's Depart
ments,!ind I cannot say too mucti in praise
of the Doctor's kind attentions to his pa
This letter I write for the benefit of all tie
ariiicted, to be nsed as the Doctor decides,
and should it be the means of directing any
to his care anefctreatment who (as they as
suredly will) lind relief, I will be paid for
my trouble. ; JAMES CAMPBELL, 1

Sax Fkaxcisco, Aug. 22, 1865.
Advised bv the undersigned, Mr. James
Campbell, of the Central pacific RaiJroad,
(who was then in a most deplorable state ot
ill health) placed himself under the care of
Dr. Bourne, the Water Cure Physician.
Some six months afterward he visited the
itv. when I accidentally met him at Dr.
Bourne's establishment,- and am happy to
say, restored to the enjoyment of good
health, and in fine spirit?.
q JOHN SULLJVAN.
ZSfT' Dr. Bourne treats all diseaHs of the
throfit, chest and lungs-which includes dip
theria, bronchitis, incipient consusiption,
plensisy, croup, etc., wih great success.
Grcatrelief is afforded in advanced stagers of
consumption. Rheumatism,, paralysis neu
ralgia, fever and ague, dropsy, etc ", etc., arc
also cured quickly, pleasantly and econom
ically. No medicine whatever. &
Dr. Bourne takes the liberty io publish fhe
above as many persons had prophesied his
relapse.into his former condition, on return
ing to his duties, of the writer of an " Inter
esting Letter," whose statements concerning
the cure of a well defined case of consump
tion have recently attracted so much atten
tion to the Water Cure, as improved upon
and practised by Dr. Bourne. This addi
tional testimony misst prove satisfactory to
all reasonable minds. It should, be remem
bered that Dr. Bourne uses no medicines
whatever, and that his patients almost uni
versally are those who failed to receive re
lief from the medical practitioners ; yet they
are cured with great rapidity, and in a pleas
ant and agreeable manner. No, 10, Masonic

are paiticularly reqtOted to read the ad
vertisement of the "Electrophatic Insti

paper. The Temarkable cures that have
been effected by Dr. J. II. Josselyn, the
Resident Physician of the Institute during
the past six years, ffas gained for this es
tablishment a reputation that has never been
equalled by .any medical establishment on
this coast. In cases of female irregularities-)
especially-, Dr. JoQselvn has gained fj envi
able reputation, and the spacious parlors of
the Institute are continually occupied by
adies asking relief from their troubles
Dr. Josselvn pays particular attention to
the treatment of cases in the interior of the
State and upon receipt of a-i'ull description"
of the disease of which the applicant is so
unfortunate as to be afflictedaccompanied
with the real or a fictitious address, sends
per Wells, Fargo & Co., .medicines that he
warrants to cure the diseas, without the
slightest injury to the system. He uses no
mercury or mineral poisons. (The remedies
used are known as ""Electic," and most of
them are of his own discovery. Persons
placing ther.tselves under the treatment of

(lad to IIer It. For several njDnthy
past Dr. J. 11. Josselyn, ftr the last six years"
so well kuo.vn as the -Resident Physician of
the Electropatliic Institute, 645 Washington
street, Sau Francisco, haa contemplal&d re
tiring from his position for 'the purpose ot
accepting the position as Visiting Physician
in one of the large hospitals in his native
State, Massachusetts. The matter becoming
known to a number of scientific gentlemen
ofjjan Francisco, who, feeling what a'great
loss would occur to th-p, 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
ed traps in close proximity to tne Institute,
adopting similar: nameso hoping to attract
hftTmtfrpnrv? hut their lailure to do so is
J committee of gentlemen appointed HxO wait q
upon him, present the resolutions, and urge
him to give up his intention ed leaving the
State and continue in his present portion.
The arguments of the committee facilitated
by certain pecuniary propositions, made by
the Directors of the Institute, having indue- O
ed the Doctor to return his position as Resi
dent Physician. We announce the success
of the negotiations w'lh satisfaction, as it
would have been difficult for the numerous
patients that heretofore relied on the Doctor

Rave found another physician capable of-rill-inghis

of ovS- readers who may be suffering from
disease of long standing, or from compfSnts
brought 'on by the use of mercury, at some
former period of their lives, to read the ad
vertisement of the Electropathie Insti&te, to
be found in our advcitising columns. Dr. J.
II,-Josselyn, the Resident Physrcian, liasoc- t
cupied thftt position for six years, and tak- 'J
ing into consideration fhe fuct 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. Josselyn's
ability that he has been retained in the posi
tion so long. Dr,. Josselyn is a regular grad
ual, and is also consiNred by competent
judges to b-e the most scientfic and success-'
ful electrican in tlie United States;5 wilj
cure more tha half the diseresthat fiesh is
heir to ithout tSe use of any medicine in-
all cases where it is deemed necessary, but
never uss anything but vegetable prepara
tions. The doctor has bjCvery successful
in' his treatment of diseases incident to. fe-'
males, and enjoys a much larger practice in"
that particular line than any other physicin
on the Pacific coast. The Electropathie Iff- &
stitute is located on one of the most popular
streets in San Francisco, the rooms for the
reception of patients are fitted up in a sftle'
of magnificence never before attempted by
any medical establishment on this coast, and
the Institute is rated in SarQFrancisco as the
best in the ciiyCy Mountain Democrat.
The Best is the Cheapest. This adaga"
will apply as well to the practice of medi
cines as to ine purcnase oi merchandise.-
isands on this coast, during the past
n years, have had their constitutions
first-class physicians, simply because a gang f
of humbugs, styling themselves doctors, and:
who are almost destitute of common sense,
much more of medical knowledge, ofler to
treat those who are sick for a less sum than
a regular practitioner. A man that would'
allow a quack to administer medicsne to"
him, is worse than an idiot, for, in nine cases
out of ten, the medicine so gives, instead of
curing the disease, makes the pafwnt worse -and
does permanent injury to the system,
and oftentimes to such sn extent as to pre--vent
the possibility of Sjuring the originall
disease. The fact is, that no person should
place himself in charge of a physician unless?
he has strong proofs that the doctor is
regular graduate fro vr-j some well repute
Medical College. The nnmber of medical
humbugs in San Francisco, is perfectly
enormous ; not more than two of the adver
tised physicians have a diploma. Dr.- J. 11
