i and feature, face and limb,
ivr so like my brother,
jlks got taking me for him.
i each for one another,
It p.-zzled all, both knh and kin,
It reached a dreadful pitchy
For.one of us was born a twin,
And not a soul knew which.
One day, to make the matter worse,
llefore our names were fixed,
As we were being washed by nurse,
We got completely mixed,
And so you see, by fate's decree,
Or rather nurse's whim,
My brother John was christened "me.
And I was christened " him."
" The fatal likeness ever dogged
Our footsteps when at school,
For I was always getting flogged
If John turned out a fool,
In fact, year after year the same
Absurd mistake went on,
And when I died the neighbors came
And buried brother "John."
The Office Seelter.
Election day is near at hand,
The "Cards" will soon appear,
Announcing that friend Jones will stand
For office and the beer.
And though he oft hath passed you by,
Amid the bustling crowd ;
He soon wilf say " How are you, Cy,
Jly boy, j'ou do me proud."
To be polite to all, he strives.
His voice could not be milder ;
As he inquires about their wives,
And all the little " childer."
He holds your hand within his own,
And glibly chats awhile;
Then says, in such a winning tone :
" Let's take a friendly smile."
gays while a steaming " Tom and Jerry'
Is gliding down your throat :--
" I was averse to running very,
But ; how about your vote?"
The full returns the papers quote,
And Jones looks most forlorn ;
He gave a horn" to get a vote
He got it in a horn !
New Mode of Cooking. A Bostonian.
Mr. Milliken by name, has devised an
apparatus for employing steam as an agent
in cooking. It has been used as yet only
in boiling meats, and the boiler is describ
ed as (a round pan thirteen inches in di
ameter and .six inches high, containing a
coil of quarter inch gas pipe, tinned over
on the upper surface and fastened in a
horizontal position a few inches from the
top of the pan, the center being raised a
little higher than the sides so as to al
low the juices to pass, off through an
outlet provided for the purpose. Another
coil of pipe shuts down upon the first one
by a hinge at the side of the pan. each
coil being independent of the next in
such a manner that it adapts itself to
the form of the meat on which it rests.
Each of the coils is attached separated to
the main boiler connection. Steam is ad
mitted at the bottom, passing out at the
top into the large trough used for wash
ing dishes. Forty pounds pressure of steam
will cook a thin slice of steak in a minute ;
fifteen pounds of meat in three minutes,
and reduciug the pressure makes the cook
ing proportionally slower. Meats placed
between these coils will cook on both
sides with great rapiditr. This appara
tus certainly has advantages. It must
cook evenly and steadily for any length
of time ; it cannot smoke or burn meat,
and is perfectly coutrolable ; it cannot
waste juices, and can be used wherever
there is a steam boiler. The steam heat
ing apparatus of a house may be thus
made to serve the purpose of a range.
Six " Monitor'' boilers of the size describ
ed, it is said, will do as much work in
hotels and steamboats, as a furnace that
consumes twenty-five bushels of charcoal
per day, and the principal can be appli
ed as well to other branches of cooking
as to boiling.
Tns American Dishwasher. A ma
chine for wrashing dishes has been in
vented and tried at Syracuse, with sat
isfactory results. It is thus described
It is in shape like a wrash tub with legs,
and provided with a cover, to which is
attached tne macninery ior woruing it,
Around the inside a wire frame is con
structed, between which and the sides
of the machine dishes are placed over
lapping each other. After filling the
epace provided with dishes, a quantity
of boiling water is poured in the center
of the machine, which is provided with
a screw shaped paddle, operated by a cog
wheel, which is adjusted on closing the
cover. By turning the crank a few sec
onds the boiling water is forced between
and about the dishes with sufficient force
to remove all grease, etc., which may be
upon them. The machine is arranged so
that the water can be drawn off beneath,
fresh boiling water introduced, and a
few turns of the crank thoroughly rinses
the dishes and it only remains to take
them out and stand them on their edge
to drain. No wiping is necessary, the
dishes having attained a temperature suf
ficiently hot to dry them pertectly.
Things Worth Knowing. The follow
ing method of obtaining copies of nianu-
O script papers will be of great service to
those who wish to preserve copies of what
thev write : Put a little sugar in common
writing ink. and with this write on com
mon paper, sized as usual. When a copv
is required, take some unsized paper and
moisten it lightly with a sponge, and apply
the wet paper to the writing, and pass
lightly over the unsized paper a moder
ately heated iron, and the copy is immedi
ately reproduced. A new keg, bucket,
churn or other wooden vessel will gener
ally communicate a disagreeable odor to
anything that is put into it. To prevent
this inconvenience, first scald the vessel
with boiling water, letting the water re
main in it till cold. Then dissolve some
pearlash or soda in lukewarm water, ad
ding a little bit of lime to it. and wash the
inside of the vessel well with the solution.
Afterwards scald it well with plain hot
water, and rinse with cold water before
you use it. Gutta percha is made by dis
solving that body in chloroform, so as to
produce a honey-like fluid. This is spread
upon the articles to be secured, allowed
to dry. The pieces are then warmed until
the coating softens, and are pressed to
gether. Patches of leather may be thus
put upon boots in a manner which defies
equally detection and dampness.
Bcttermilk Pie. Three pints of butter
milk, two eggs, four tablespoonsful of

The Corn Question. The Napa Register
says : Many of our readers having failed
to get a stand of wheat upon their wet
lands on account of the late floods, are
now debating as to whether it will pay
best to plant corn in its stead, or to let the
land rest for the ensuing year. To all
such we would say. by all means put the
ground in corn. By that means the land
will be thoroughly stirred and pulverized.
and before any rain falls next season your
wheat may be sown, thus insuring at least
one-third heavier crop than it put in later
in tne season. Lut, suggests some oppo
nent of this plan, corn won't pay for
working. This it seems to us is a mistake
With anything like proper culture corn
will nett more to the acre than wheat
Suppose we look into the cost question a

Forty-Six Years Experience. A far
mer who had experience as a farmer forty
six years, gives to the American Agricul
turist some notes on his farming practice
Among otner tnings he remarks : "fcome
men say that corn will degenerate and
runout. My father got a' kind of yellow
twelve rowed corn in the year of the great
eclipse, in 1806, which I remember very
well. I took it from him in the spring of
1820, and have it now. It is an early,
sound corn, very easy to husk. I can
raise eighty bushels ot shelled corn to the
acre, with no extra labor, planting three
and a half feet apart each way. I have
another kind of eight-rowed yellow corn,
which I got in 1828, which will grow and
ripen in ninety or "one hundred days.
Wheat, oats, and potatoes will degenerate
and wear out (with ordinary culture.)
We do not harvest our grain or cut our
hay early enough in this country. When
I commenced farming I was closely
watched by my neighbors, who said I
plowed too deep, cut my hay too early,
and cut my grain too green. I have
farmed on twelve different farms, and the
result has been, I have trippled the crops
on an average."
Beautifcl Experiments. First fill a
wide mouthed glass jar with water, and
cover it with a piece of " foundation"' (the
ladies will understand this.) then cover
that with a layer of peas, pressing it down
so that the peas will lay in the water.
They will then swell and sprout, the roots
growing down into the water, their fibres
presenting a beautiful appearance. Set
this in a window, and vines will grow up
which can be conducted to the sill. The
whole is very handsome. If an acorn be
suspended by a piece of thread to within
half an inch of some water contained in a
hyacinth glass, and so permitted to re
main without being disturbed, it will in a
few months burst and throw a root down
into the water, and shoot upward its
tapering stem, with beautiful little green
leaves. A young oak tree, growing this
way, on a mantle-shelf of a room, is a very
What Industry- will Do. Under this
head the Waco (Texas,) Register has the
following : " Last year a yonqg man liv
ing near this place, Albert Sears, rented a
piece of good land, hired one good old
freedman, and with his own hands went to
work to cultivate the soil. He worked
manfully and well. And now for the
fruits of his industry : He has gathered
twenty-four bales of cotton, two thousand
bushels of corn, and made four hundred
gallons of molasses from sorghum. He
also has some pork to spare. He has sold
sixteen hundred bushels of corn for $1 -200,
obtained S300 for his molasses, and
his cotton is good for $1,800 more mak
ing in all $3,300. He was at some trifling
extra expense during cotton picking
What do you do with Soap Scds. Of
them the ScottisJi Farmer says, although
generally deemed only fit for being run
off into the common sewer in the easiest
and most expeditious manner possible,
they are nevertheless highly beneficial
vegetable feeders, as well as useful insect
preventatives. Hence they should never
be wasted, more especially bv parties
having gardens, as their application to the
ground, whether in winter or summer will
show beneficially not only on ordinary
vegetable crops, but also on berry bushes,
shrubs and border flowers, and window
pot-plants ; while if poured or syringed
over roses, cabbages, etc.. they will pre
vent, or at least mitigate the mischievous
doings of the green fly and catterpillnr.
