ToB-icccC The New York QAgricidturist
eays5) We are often inquired of, by far
mers and others, a3 to some method of
preparing for use the tobacco which they
raise. The sailors' way is simple and good.
After the curing and drying process is
complete, select the inner and best outer
leaves of the tobacco ; sprinkle with pretty
6weet molasses and water, and lay them
together until they become uniformly
damp ; then twist them into a roll, say
twelve or fifteen inches long and three
inches through ; bititt them together tight
ly with twine. The twine should Xtt e
wound on the tobacco in two or three
layers, like thread on a spool, and drawn
as tightly as its strength will allow. After
remaining for two or three weeks it will
be fit to use, although the longer it is kept
the "better it becomes, if not allowed to
mould, which may be prevented by wip-
ing occasionally with a rag, wet m
classes, or licmorice and water. This
will he found better for smokingand chewing
than the ordinary tobacco to be had in
To Insure Eggs for Winter. If an old
hen has been laying well all summer, and
isolate in moulting, she requires rest and
time tO(Tecoyer from the moult ; and if
cold weathePcomes on her when but par
tially moulted, she will, perhaps, be along
time recoveringthe proper condition for
laying. If, however, she is allowed to) set
late in summer, so as to rest her from egg
laying, and during the time she is tending
her brood she is encouraged to molt, by
warmth and generous feeding, she will,
when her moult is completed, soon get
into a laying condition, and, by good
management, may often be kept laying all
winter, and lay better and larger eggs
than pullets. I give a little barley and
oats, mixed, eachoday, and nave the run

New view of Choleraic Discharges.
Cholera is attributable to the destructive
action of parasites. In the general run of
cases, the epit.helunn and villi, which have
been subjected to a destructive process
are thrown off during the promonitory
diarrhea, and are discoverable with a lit
tle difficuity even in the earliest ejections
and vomited fluid. The essential charac
ter of this disease are made to lie in the
loss of lymph ; it is a true lympbtraqa?.
The want ofbalatice which ensues be
tween the process of secretion and ab
Horption, and Avhen once this has occurred,
there is nothing to look for but thai algid
condition in which a blood statis forbids
any further circulation of fluid;

How to Dissolve Boxe. Bone is a val

be used because it cannot be ground.
There are lArge quantities near villages
and towns which sm be had for nothing.
One method is to makeQinto heaps with
fresh stable manure, occasionally turn, in
about threernonths they dissolve ; or,
place them in a tight cask or box, with al
ternate layers of unleached ashes leached

People behind the times should be fed
Life and Time3 of " Old Dick." When
I was a boy, Dick was a colt. My brother
was Dick's master. Dick had white stock
ings. He had wall-eyes. He wa3 " fa2
fleshed and well favored" (Gen. 41.)
When he was a colt, there wa3 no Central
Railroad cr People's line of steamboats.
Boston was reached by the old Red Bird
Line of stage-coaches, and there was no
railway from Stur-geonburg to Yankeedom.
There was no telegraphic correspondence
between Atlantic cities, much less between
Atlantic and trans-Atlantic cities. Old
Dick contributed his share,, with others
like him, to all these posthumous improve
ments. When he was young, he had never
given his time to reaping or mowing or
sawing wood, but he was accustomed to
plowing, harrowing and furrowing among
potatoes and corn, drawing wood and stone,
manure, hay, and grain on the farm and to
the market. He was agricultural and do
mestic generally. He would work before
oxen. He made a very good spike team
with a young pair of brindle steers on the
Fish farm. He was very kind and true to
draw. If the steers' horns came against
him he would not kick. He conformed his
steps to theirs; he was a sort of pioneer or
leader. Dick and his horned helpers turned
many a furrow through the stubble, the
greensward and the potato ground, and
prepared the fields for the crops of wheat,
rye, buckwheat, oats, peas, barley, corn,
potatoes, beans, turnips and flax. He
would draw in these crops and tread them
out on the thresh-floor, and carry them to
mill or market. He had a great many
mates, but no equals. He had a prior claim
to the attention and attachment of his mas
ter and all the neighbors. One of Dick's
mates was named Cdtc, with cocked ankles,
who was never half so true or kind. Old
Cato and Dill from the west, with their wide
strapped harness, were never considered
on an equality with Dick. A dozen or
more came to work side by side with old
Dick, but one, after another left him, dis
abled or otherwise, so that for 20 years he
was the first and the last and the best ot
all. He had much to do with the fortunes
of his master and the improvements on and
about the farm. He, like his master aM
many others, had his day of small things.
He used to wear an old Dutch collar and
rope traces, and dra)the old sled or stone
boat, or wooden plow, until, from his hard
earnings, his master could furnish a new
style of harness, the patent plow, flewer
styles oG)sleighs and wagons, better stable
and carriage house, cVsan horse-blankets,
new horse-brushes, and everything else for
his comfort and convenience. Dick went
to the mill with the bag on his back, or-ln
the wagon or sleigh. He went to meeting
six miles, twice a week, until by his help
a place of worship was provided on the
premises after this his Sabbaths were
days oPrest. He was a favorite in the
household of his master, and among the
group of domestic animals. He was a
patriarch in the stable, the barn-yard, the
field, the pasture and the meadow. He
was then pre-occupying every department
of the establishment when they were on
the manor born, or imported from regions
beyond. He was for many years an im
portant part and parcel of the productive
workers of the once rough, now smooth
and highly cultivated Fish farm. Every
pig and pigeon, every cow and galf, every
hen and chicken, every mare and colt, the
sheep and lambs nay, every child in the
house, and every laborer in the kitchen or
in the field knew the old farm horse as
soon as their eyes opened upon the house,
barn or fields of his master. Verymany
of them found him there and left him there.
He contributed, in no small degree, to his
master's pleasure and profit ; and it i3 a
little remarkable that during the whole
term of Dick's service the children were
tll born, and no death invaded the family
Old Dick contributed not only to the
temporal prosperity of his master, and
helpeoThim to take up the mortgage 6u the
farm, and double its value by cultivation
and improvements, but he helped him toj
euucateptne children, ana assist them as
they came to act for themselves on thoJ
stage or me. ins labor enaoiea his master
to feed the hungry, clothe the naked, and
spread the gospel, and lay up treasures in
Heaven. When his master's Master shall
confess before the angel's, it shall "appear
that old Dick's labors were not in vaiu. it
is not generally supposed thaQany horse
can send u man to Heaven but it is known
that "all things" which include old Dick
''shall work together for good," for good
people. How much he has had to do with
the present and future well being of his
master and his familv, " we shall know
hereafter." Good and useful as he was. ,
salvation is of the Lord, of (Course ; and
yet he was a great blessing, and may have
been instrumental in perfecting the gra
cious designs of Djviue Providence. We
are morally susceptible to everything
arojlnd and within us. Then old Dick has
made us better or orse. Who will pre
sume to say, now of hereafter, that he has
made us worse ? Then he lias made us
better. Who can afoid this conclusion ?
His record is one that an old horse might
be proud of His antecedents and sur
roundings suffer nothing by comparison
witE1 those of the potentates of Europe,
and irnmeasureably trangcend those of
Davis and Johnson. He never wore crino
line, or turned his coat. An old striped
horse-blanket, with a-leather girdle, was
as honorable and appropriate as crqyns
that monarchs ever wore.
All is well thatends well? Old Dick's
shadow nevergrew-'less. Those who loved
him, loved him ever. Some shoddy or
cod-fish aristocrats put on airs, and revel
in their ill-gotten gains, and keep their par
ents in the back kitchen, outf sight, or
commit them to the alms-house to die,
where their gray hairs, or wrinkled cheek,
or unfashionable attire or rustic manners.
will not offend the taVterand style of then
fashionable drawing-room. How unlike
the basket-fflaker who became a millionaire
and had his coat-of arms painted !oh the
carriage door, representing himself pedling
baskets. We should not forget the hole of
lire pit in which we have dug. Old Dick's
last days were his best days. He never
fared more sumptuously than in his dotage
he had an amle allowance after he was
superannuatedl,and never looked through
a collar for years. He Q-orc as good a
blanket as ever to the last. He had as
good a bed after he had retired from busi
ness, as when he toiled for his matter. He
had plenty of meal after his grindei-s-ceased
to do his milling. Old Dick's bread and
water were sure. His daj-s being numbered
and his work donee died inpeace, with
out the horrors of an upbraiding conscience
ro disturb his repose. He never went to
Purgatory, much less to perdition. He
had the good will of all who knew him,
and he richly deserved it. His memory is
cherished to this day. Only few old horses
had more friends and fewer enemies. Some
men have more virtues but rne have fewer
faults. OLd Dick's epitaph was not copietl J
" Died. In eXewVorld, in the middle
of the Nineteenth century, Old Dick, a
noble specimen of his race, good in the
saddle, better in .harness. He earned
his living and paid his way Peace to
his ashes weep not, but be kind to all
akin to him.''

to Hear It. For several months
J. H. Josselyn, for the last six years
so well kuown as the Resident Physician of
the Electropathic Institute, 6-15 Washington
street, Saa Francisco, has contemplated re
tiring from his position for the purpose ot
accepting the position as Visiting Physiciau.
in otic of the large hospitals in his native
State, Massachusetts. The matter becoming
known to a number of scientific gtlemen;
of'Sin Francisco, who, feeling what a great
loss wdwld 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 laud irry
hpt the Dye-tor's abilities were passed, aim a
committee ot gentlemen appointed to wait
upon him, present the resolutions, and urge
him to give up his intention of leaving the
State, and continue m his present position.

the-pirectors of" the Institute, having induc
ed the Doctor to return his position as Resi

of the negotiations with satisfaction, as it
would haWi been difficult for toe numerous
patients that heretofore relied on the Doctor
for scientific and successful treatment to
have found another physician capable of fill

-Read It. We heartily recommend those
of our readers who may be suffering from
disease oflong standing, or from complaint
brought on by the use of mercury, at some
former period of their lives, to read the ad
vertisement of the Electropathic Institute, to
be found in our advertising columns. Dr. J.
II. Josselyn, the HesidentjPln-sician, has oc
cupied that position for six years, and tak
ing into consideration the fuct that all the
Directors of the Instituterare all medical
men of high standing in the community, it
may be considered as proof of Dr. Josseiyn's
ability that he has been retained in the posi
tion so long. Dr. Josselyn is a regular grad
uated and is also considered hv nomnetpnt

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 necessar-, but
never uses anything but vegetable prepara
tions. The doctor has been very successful
in his treatment of diseases incident to fe- s
males, and enjoys a muchejarger practice in
that particular line than any other physician
ou the Pacific coast. The Electropathic In
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 style
of magnifjeence never befbrattempted 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 their 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, lor, 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 io 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 some well reputed
Medical "College. The number of medical
humbugs ih San Francisco, is perfectly
enormous ; not more than two of the adver
tised physicians have a diploma. Dr. J. H
Josselyn, Resident Physician of the Electro
pathic Institute, 645 Washington street, is
one cf these, and is prepared at all times to
exhibit his diplomas. l'reka Union Febru
