A new one stands there now
What fun we've had in that old bay !
What frolics in the mow !

0 The great difficulty in setting
out trees and getting the to to live is
theolroulh in the summer time. In
order to prevent the drouth from in
juring them, take long manure or
htrav.- nod lay around the roots, and
pile stones or wood or boards on it.
This will keep the ground moist and
the trees will all live. Wood is good
without the straw lut better with it.
Try it and see.
rphe rust in wheat is a subject
of discussion iu San Francisco. Air.
W. Itiymcnd, a scientific gentleman,
nays that the rust in wheat is a veg
etable parasite which spends one por
tion of its existence on the wheat
plant, and after that U ruined, is car
ried by the winds to the barberry
bushes, whore it completes its circle
nf life, generates an immense swarm
of germs and dies. Those germs are
carried by the winds to the wheat
oQ fields of the next year, and the same
-course is repeated. Without the
:busins the rust fungus could never

ilo be correct, the barberry will have

Jn some localities farmers find
dlfft-ufi-. ' to rear fo'wls on account of
Vlic lejnv. lalions of skunks. In some
of Ukj f-gii -ullural papers it has been
rscr-Vecl and onfirmed by testimony
O lint if this animal is caught in a box
trap to low that it tannoflift its tail,
rtSeve will be iio offensive emission
from itsc'nt-bag ; for it is asserted
there ;.o a connection between the
Muscles of the tail and those by which
he inuky fiujd is ejected which pre
vents the latter event unless the for
mer can be raised erect. Caught in a
box-trap very little higher than the
animal stands, ho may be drowned
without endangering the trapper with
the animal's perfume. A correspond
Odeii of the Country Gentleman says
An old gentleman, one of my
neighbors, has caught, skinned, aud
pressed his scores of them, and it was
a common sight, on passing his house
of u morning, to see him deliberately
trudging, with staffin one hand and a
liglit box-trap under the other arm.
toward an adjacent mill-dam, where a
rope and stone soon prepared the
6ubject for farther operations. When
seated on a log, the old man would
leisurely remove the skin, toss the
musk-bag and entrails into the pond,
md fiualiy start for home with the
little cQrcass as white and clean as
that of a squirrel or raccoon, and
presently it would appear in a drip
ping-pan by the fire, when the oil,
after separation, was either used as a
medicine or burned in lamps. The
q oil is a valuable remedy in croup and
kindred diseases, being second only
to that of rattlesnake fcr this purpose.
Onions. John D. Wolf writes to
the Scientific American as follows:
In the spring of IS 19 I was in
t rrarge of one hundred men on ship
lo;rd, with the cholera among the
men. We had onions, which a nura

nearly all died. As soon as I made
this discovery thejr use was forbid
len. After mature reflection, I came
to the ccnclusiou, that onions should
never be eaten during the prevalence
of epidemics, for the reason that they
ubsorb the virus and communicate
the disease, and that the proper use
for them is sliced and placed in the
sick room, replaced with fresh ones
every few hours. It is a well estab
lished fact that onions will extract the
poison of snakes; this I personally
know. Some kinds of mr.d will do
the 6ame. After maintaining the
foregoing opinion for eighteen years,

there is smali-pox,. will b'ister and

only so, but will prevent the spread

A correspondent of the Field,
gives the following recipe for harness
blacking-, which he has used for sev
eral years and is perfectly coiivinced
of its excellence ; Beeswax (shred
fine), eight ounces, turpentine suffi
cient to .cover it; let them stand till
the wax is dissolved f three or four
days); ivory black, fuur ounces ; ol
ive oil (I use neatv foot oil), two
ounces; Prussian blue, two ounces.
Rub the ivory black and Prussian
blue well together to a fine powder
in a mortar, then add the oil, and
gradually the other ingredients, and
thoroughly mix them. If it gets
hard by keeping, soften with turpen
tine. I use one brush one end for
blacking, the other for polishing.
" The prospects for an excellent
crop of wheat in this county were
never better" is a favorite item with
the California papers. Here in Or

contrary. - There is always an excel

though fully qualiiied by 'hid knowledge of
his profession to treat the various probers! ail
ments of humanity, yet is totally ignoninf, as
tho majority of thum penerally are, of this pe
culiar branch of his tcieuco; the reason being
that he has never made it his peculiar Mudy.
And the other rock is the blatant charlatan
and quack, who preys on ths pockets and lives
f its victims. Thesa indi vidual asume titles
to which they have not tho slightest preten
tion, and are, for the most part, men even with
out the ordinary common rudiments of educa
tion, who, by their force of imjiudonce and ad
vertising, irretrievably ruin the small remains
of health of the poor, deluded victim.
DR.S. HASTINGS HALL,
Who has been established in San Francisco
fince 1S'J3, has stepped, perhaps, he acknowl
edges, out of the routine'f his profession, by
thus advertising-, but he deems it better to give
a fellow being an opportunity of at leaEt I e:rg
cnpablo of discriminating for himself out of the
masses of charlatanism, at least one practi
tioner who has devoted his time, money and
fctudy to this peculiar branch of his prole.-sion.
ond who is a legally qualified practitioner cud
member of tho Medical lioard, and was form
erly a pupil of and practiced under the cele
brated Acton & Itecord, has now the most ex
tensive practice, extending through tho whole
of California, Oregon, Isevada, Washington
Territory, and throughout the whole Pacific
slope, having established this extensive prac
tice through his admirable system of corres
ponding by letter, bix hours in the day are
continuously devoted to this branch of prac
tice. DTI. S. II. HALL'S Establishment Is well
known to all visitors to San Fraucico. His
reputation alone as a lecturer on Physiological
aud Anatomical subjfets is saificient securiiy
to tho public that those who place themselves
under his care will, to say the least, hare a
guaiantee that they have placed themselves in
tlio hands of one who is well acquainted with
the anatomy and physiology ot the human body
audits mysterious workings; and, therefore,
irrespective of his reputation for curing tho.-e
dieearcs, lie is universally acknowledged to he
competent to euro them. He also takes tho
greatest precaution to avoid publicity being
given as to recognition fiou. whence the cor
respondence comes, lie has now been in prac
tice twenty-three years, ami not a sii rle case
lias ever been made public He can be con
sulted by letter, or personally at his offieo.
