Ecsipt for Making a Live Town.
1. Sell VMir business lots at renson
2. If you can afford to do so, donate
a buildins: lot for sme lar;e business
enterprise, and thereby enhance the

your own town.

5. Always mm up your expense

6. Speak "vrell of worthy pubiic en
tvrprie. 7 If anything should be undertaken
that may be of bci efit to the town, do
not apt-ale ill of it to others because you
happen tu be prejudiced against it.
8. Speak well to strangers of yom
t'wu and it 8 pe iple.
9. If you have any surplus nionej
uo not invest it in far off speculation,
but give yourself and your town the
benefit of it by establishing some profit
10. Encourage your local newspaper

TO KILL A TOWN.
1. To nut no more buildings thau
you can occupy yourself.
2. If you have an empty building
to ttM-t, demand three times its value.
3. L ok sorrowful, be littl, and in
sult every new come ; give the cold
shoulder to, and undeirate everv me
chanic and professional man that de
sires to come among you.
4. Go abroad for your goods and.
wares. By no means purclre from
your own merchants and manufacturers,
even at the same pi ice or less.
5. Finally, give a thorough finish to
your w rk by working against your lo
eal paper. Bemea-j everybody con
nected with it; refuse to subsciibecr
advertise in it, so that persons living at
a di-tance will not know that any
businets is being done in your t'iwri, or
they may want to come and settle
mong you, or buy something from you
a l that wi.uhl give you tmub'e.
Lamb Stewed with Green
Teas. Cut the scrag or breast
of lamb in pieces and put it
into a stew-pan with iust
enough water to cover it.
Cover it closely and let it stew j
for twenty minutes. Take off i
the scum; add a tablespoonful
of salt add a quart of shelled
peas; cover and let them stew
for halfan hour: mix a table- j
spoonful of flour and butter and ;
stir in; let it simmer ten min-1
utes; then serve. If you mix
the flour with cream it makes
it better. Would recommend
this recipe to our friends who
keep bachelors' hall. Veal is
nice cooked in the same way,
with half a dozen small new
poiatoes added with the peas.
German Pickles. Take two
or three dozen pickles (good
sized ones), half a peck of small
grape leaves and some dill;
wash the pickles and leaves;
take a small jar and lay in the
bottom of it a layer of leaves
and then of pickles, and a little
dill; lay in alternate layers;
make a salt water brine of very
-arm water enough to cover '
the pickles; do not make it too !
salty; put a pickle in the jar, j
and lay on it a heavy stone.
In about a week the pickles
will be sour. Jry but a few for
the first time; you may like
them and you may not. I
think ther are very nice.
