The following quaint words of old Robert
Southwell, are worthy of beiDg committed to
memory : t
" Shun delays, they breed remorse ;
' Take thy time while time is lent thee,
Creeping snails have weakest force,
Fly their faults, lest thou repent thee,
Good is best when soonest wrought,
Lingering labors come to naught.
KHoist up sail while gale doth last.
Wind and tide stay no man's pleasure,
Seek not time when time is past,
Sober speed is wisdom's leisure.
After-wits are dearly bought ;
Let thy fore-wit guide thy thought."

If there be any blackberry really

The Best Grape Sets. In answer
to a writer in .Horticulturist, who
complains of the high price of what ho
calls basket layers of grape vines;
Mr. Griffith, grape grower of North
east, (Pennsylvania, says, " a good,
strong, well-grown yearling plant can
be gxowu for about ten cents, and as
thecutting or bud (except of the 'new
and rare' sorts) can be obtained for
about a half of a cent, such pines
ought to sell for something less than
twenty cents. From an experience
of more than twenty years, during
which time I tiave grown some
millions of grape vines, one hundred
thousand of which I have fruited in
my own vineyard, I am fully able to
demonstratethat a welUgrown one
year old vine, produced from a single
bud, in open culture, is the best and
most valuable plant that can begrown. i
To Iurify Water Instantly.
A few drops of Solution of per

and cisterns may be purified in this

'ulcers and ga'hgrene. Its effect.,
however, in this case is transient,
and the salt is wholly decomposed

beautiful violet hue and changes the

and, when this has takgn place, they

to form the whole into a thick paste,
which Jhey work intballs that are
afterwards dried by a sww heat.
When wanted for use they are broken,

A Good Sight of Air. Few per
sons would credit the assertions that
air can be see?, but it is true never
theless. A practical philosopher
shows that if on a windy day you hold
the back of your saw horizontally at
a certain angle, bring your eye to a
level with the edgenu a little to the
right, yon will see the wiud flow over
it in waves. The experiment is best
in a bright day.
Whether Petroleum can Su
persede Coal. A recent authority
on this subject says the notion of eoal
being superseded by petroleum as
steam fuel is utterly fallacious. Oae
might just as well expect to obtain a
tun and a half of iron, from a tun of
ore, as some of the results put forward
by those interested in the matter.
Scrubbing of'Gas. We read in a
recent report in a chemical journal
that Mr. Livesey. read a paper on a
new mode of purifying gas. His
method is confined to the removal of
sulphuretted hydrogen, which be
effects by scrubbing the raw gas with
desulphu retted Ammonical liquor. l-
Why Orchards Deteriorate.
Fruit trees, like every thing else whose
sustenance is derived from. the earth,
are subject to decay, but by improper
management they are often killed
before their natural productive power
is half exhausted. This 'is not the
'fault of the variety planted, the local
ity, nor the severity of the weather,
except in.rare instances, but of those
who have the care artd culture of
them. The trouble generally arises
from the want of thought or the
cupidity of the owner. He plants an
orchard, the trees perhaps twenty feet
apart. In a lew years, rf they grow
well, their branches will cover a large
portion of the intervening space. But
some ground is still unshaded, an
orchardist thinks it is a pity that this
should lie waste. The plow is intro
duced, and what is the result? Simply
this; hundreds and hundreds of the
small fibres, reaching out from the
main loots in search of sustenance for
the trunk, are severed; their absorbing
and conducting power is destroyed,
and the trees and branches, sustained
by their active functions, wither; it
ceases to yield its wanted burden of
fruit, and, after a few years of languid
life, permaturey does.
The truth is, the farmer asks too
much of h soil; wants it to impart
vigor and fruitfulness to from fifty to
eighty trees to the acre, Desides giviug
him a crop of corn and potatoes an
nually.0 To secure the last he cuts
the thousands of fibres of his trees
with the plow, and then wonders why
his orchard decays and dies prema
turely! "This is bad policy and poor
practice. Do not ask too much from
the soirV Give it a chance to nourish
and sustain one product to a full
development, rather than by a
multiplication of them, to secure
Sthited samples of immature ones.
The earth, properly manured and
tilled, is munificent in its gifts to
man, but when over tasked by a
multiplicity of exactions its response!
to his labors will be feeble andunsat

Save the FEUTiLiZERS.-Much mat
ter of a fertalizing character is suffered
to go to wast on farms for the lack
of a little care in gathering, preserv
ing and applying it to the soil. Being
distributed in small parcels at various
points, it is regarded as of little conse
quence, but it brought together the
several amounts would assume an
importance which the separate parts
failed to indicate. If the parcels of
manure one frequently sees about
sheds, hog pens, hen roosts, door
yards and the like, were carefully
gathered and applied to the farm and
thegarden, the products of each would
j be materially increased, while the cost
of the gathering and application
would be fully repaid by the superior
healthfulness resulting from their re
moval. When this refuse matter is
not in a proper state for immediate
use, it should be gathered into heaps
for fermentation the masses being
augmented from time to time, as
material accumulates, till the prepare
at ion of the wheat ground shall call
for its application. Save all, should
be the ruling idea with the farmer.

Salt for Fattening Swine. A
correspondent of the Annalen des
Landwirthshaf t, states some interest
ting expei iments to test the use of
salt in fattening swine. He selected
two pairs of barrow hogs, weighing
200 pounds apiece. One pair receivs
ed, with their daily allowance of food,
two ounces of salt; the other pair,
similarly fed, none. Tn the course
ofa week it was easily seen that the
salted pair had a much stronger ap
petite than the others, and after a
fortuight it was increased to two
ounces apiece. After four months
the weight of the salted hogs was
350 pounds each, while that of the
unsalted, five weeks later,' reached
only 300 pounds. The experiment
was repeated with almost precisely
the same results. The author feeds
young pigs, according to their age, a
quarter of an ounce daily; breeding
sows very little during pregnancy,
and during the heat of summer with
holds it in a great degree from all, as

Influence of wooded Districts on
the Descent of Rain. M. Becquerel
and bis son have laid before the
French Academy the results of sever
al observations conducted in the
environment of Montargis. They
conclude that wooded districts draw
down a larger amount of rain than
plains. Remembering the fact that
when the clouds approach a mountain,
or eveu a simple hill, they ascend and
then meeting a colder stratum of air
become converted into rain, one is led
to think that lofty woods may have
the same effect. This view the auth
ors tested by establishing five observe
atories in the district named, of the
rainfall. They found that far more
falls in the wooded than in the un-
Rats and Mice. The asphodel, a
perrennial plant cultivated for the
beauty of its flowers, is said to be
very useful in driving away rats and
mice, which have such an antipathy
to this plant that if their holes be
stopped up with it, they will rather
die than pass where it has been
placed. Who can furnish us with a
little of it?
Urea. Quantities of urea are now
found in the milk of herbivorous
animals. The same substance has
also been foand to have exuded ooon
the skins of pstients in certain diseases.

growing, slowly at fir st, but during the past

a complete cure is effected. Her suffering
for the first 24 hours under treatment was

so well known as the Resident Physician of
the Electropathic Institute, 645 Washington
street, San Francisco, has contemplated re
tiring from his position for the purpose ot
accepting the position as Visiting Physician
in one ot the large hospitals in his native
State, Massachusetts. The matter becoming
known to a number of scientific gentlemen
of San Francisco, who, feeling what a great,
loss woud 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,- present the resolutions, and urge
him to give' up his intention of leaving tlie
State, and continue m his pr esent 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 ss Resi
dent Physician. We announce the success
of the negotiations with satisfaction, as it
would have been difficult for the numerous
patients that heretofore relied on tile Doctcr
for scientific and successful treatment la
have found another phy S1C10.I1 CM pable of fill
ing his place. Democratic Standard, Jan. SI.
Read It. We heartily recommend those
of our readers who may be suffer ing from
disease of long standing, or from complaints
brought on by the use of mercury, at some
former period of their lives, to read the ad
vertisement of fhe Electropathie Institute, to
be found in our advertising columns. Dr. J.
II. Josselyn, the Resident? Physician, has oc
cupied that position for six years, and tak
ing into consideration fhe "fuct that aft the
Directors of fhe 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 sb long. Dr. Josselyn is a regular gvad
uate, and is also consideied by competent
judges to be the most scientfic and success
ful electrican in the United States; he will'
cure more than half the diseases that flesh is'
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 has been very successful
in his treatment of diseases incident to fe
males, and enjoys a much larger practice in
that particular iine than any other phvsician
on the Pacific Coast. The Electropathic In
stitute is located on one of the most popular'
streets in San Francisco, the rooms for the
reception ot patients are fitted up in a style
of magnificence never before attempted "byv
any medical establishment on this coast, and
the Institute, is rated in San Francisco as the '
best in the city. Mountain Democrat.
The P.est 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 h;l their constitutions
ruined" by refusing treatment at the hands of
first-class physicians,.simply because a gang
of htrmbugs, styling themselves doctors, and
who are almost destitute of common sense,
much more of medical knowledge, offer to
... , ....
treat those wno are sick lor 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 worse
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 ofa physician unless
he has str ong proofs that the doctor is a
regular graduate from some well reputed'
Medical College. The number of medical
humbugs in San Francisco, is perfectly
enormous ; not more fhan two of the adver
tised physicians have a diploma. Dr. J. 11.
