IVIien and How to Eat FruitLive
Oysters and Peaclics.
From Forney's Philadelphia Tress.
A writer in Chambers' Journal says that
fruit should be eaten alive, like oysters.
o There is an edge
to the taste of a fresh
opened oyster, which,
I surfpose, comes
from the surprise he feels at being sudden
ly scooped from the shell. In a few min
utes this gives place to a feeling of alarm;
and then in an hour or two, io one of des
pair. When lie is laid out with his breth
ren in a dish, the whole brood is hopeless
and sad. They may still taste of life, but
it is of life disappointed.. But the freshly
opened oyster has no time to grow feverish
or melancholy. lie is caught in a slate of
serene unconsciousness of sorrow. lie
has a sound mind in a sound body, and is
therefore wholesome and nice. Allow
him to reflect before his dissolution, and
tho brightness of his spirit is gone. But
the quick operation of detaching him from
tha shell sends a spasm through his being,
which startles all the latent excellence
which he may possess, into sudden and
ti.nque perfection. If eaten at this crisis
of healthful powers, he conveys all the
gratification an oyster is capable of giving
to the superior animal man. -
So, analogously, I believe, it is in eating
fruit. It must be eaten alive before the
reaction begins to set in from its severance
from '16 e life-caying stem. While a plum,
for example, hangs upon its stock, it is in
some kind of magnetic correspondence
with all the powers of nature ; it shares
the life of the earth and the sky ; it has
Rinshinc in its veins, and dew in its cells.
Cut it off. and in time it dies, corrupt, un
wholesome : and everv movement in its
progress fron? life to death is marked by a
iecadence of that essence which makes
fruit delicious. Therefore, supposing that
you pluck it ripe, the sooner a plum is
eaten, the better ior you. mis or course
applies most to tender, thin-skinned fruit.
A firm apple dies slowly. A nut holds
out long, against the debasing influeuce
of separation from its source of life. But
plums, figs, peaches, apricots, and straw
berries, begin to sutler directly after they
are gatuere.i. This is the case even with
pines, which are susceptible of bruises,
but they containsuch apparent surplussage
c f flavor that the first stage of their decay
is not perceived, except by a cunning
I think the morning is the best lime for
fruit. I am not quite sure, though. The
afternoon is good. But I don't recom
mend fruit with the dew on it. Let the
fruit t its own breakfast before you eat
it yourself. It breakfasts on early sun
shine and dew. It takes these good
things, and then smiles upon itself and the
world, jutt as you do half an hour after a
pleas.ant breakfast. Eat it while it is in
this humor, by no means in the raw and
early morning-, thus you have the young
freshness and virgin flavor of the fruit. It
has another character later ia tho day,
when it is filled with sunshine; then I
tah.k it is sweeter. It does not express,
perhaps, the same- exquisite accuracy of
characteristic flavor, but its capacity for
richness is tli-m at its fullest stretch. It
pulp is not less niiey, though it is more
general than special in its character; and,
moreover, it impresses you With a sense of
the contrast between the dry, weary air of
the day, and the reserve of freshness
latent in the hanging plum.
Would it be possible for any cunning
magician in words to convey a sense of
the favor of various fruits? I think not.
"When I try. Uio difficulty is radical and
speckle; it doc.j not lie in my impotence
of language. It is merely a small and
fiint elfort to describe the currant as
fharp; the nectarine, clean, quick and
juicy; the peach, mellow, melting and
high-bred; the apple, sound and mascu
line; the pear, subtle and yet firm; the
grape, generous; the "strawberry, tender,
yet distinct and fragrant; the gooseberry,
vulgar yet pleasant; the raspberry, sweet;
the cherry fleeting and pulpy. It is of no
use trying. It is not my fault; tlit.1 fault
lies in the inadequacy of language to de
fine the sensation which shall be appro
priate to the flavor ol fruit, and yet con
vey the peculiar property of the several
sorts. I will not attempt a definition of
them. Put I protest against the coarse
ness of the intellect which does not per
ceive, in eating, that it is brought into
contact with the subtlest and most distinc
tive difference which can characterize any
thing which, like fruit, is known under one
Each ant in an anthill knows his
companions. Darwin several times car
ried ants from one hill to another, inhab
ited apparently by tens of thousands of
a-ts; but the strangers were invariably
detected and killed. Thinking there might
be a family odor by which they were re
cognized, he put some ants from a very
large fiest into a bottle strongly perfumed
with assafcetida, and restored them after
twenty-four hours. At first they were
threatened by their companions, but soon
recognized and allowed to pass.

O never before heard of this cure one
among len thousand it would be well for
those who suffer with the most terrible of

Ccre fou Low Spirits. Exercise for
the body, occupation for the mind, are the
grand constituents for health and happi
ness. Motion is a great preserving prin
ciple of nature, to which even inanimate
things are subject; for the winds, waves,
and the earth itself are restless; and the
waving of trees, shrubs and flowers, is
known to be au essential part of their
economy. A fixed rule of taking several
hours exercise 'every day, if possible in
the open air, if not, under cover, will be
almost certain to secure cne exemption
from disease, as well as from attacks of
low spirits, ennui.
Ccre ior Foisox Oak. A correspond
ent of the Alia gives this as a cure for
poison oak: Simply bathe the parts pois
oned with hot water, as hot as can be
borne; keep increasing the temperature
till it can no longer be used without burn
ing. Press a soft towel against the parts
so as to absorb the water, and avoid rub
bing; then apply a rather strong solution
of strong navy, or plug chewing tobacco
on the poisoned places and let it dry. The
solution is best when the water is hot. I
have tried this and have been cured, or
very nearly so, in two to four days at the
A Bed-Bc Antidote. A lady who
tried this simple method of extirpating
the repulsive bed-bug, is kind enough to
give a profession of faith in the efficacy,
through the columns of a newspaper : If
any of your readers need a sure remedy
for bed-bugs, they can have mine and
cleanse the house of this troublesome ver
min without expense. They have only to
wash with salt water, filling the cracks
where they frequent with salt, and you
may look in vain for them. Salt seems
inimical to bed-bugs, and they will not
trail through it. I think it preferable to
all ointments, and the buyers require no
certificates as to its genuineness.
A Chester farmer, having noticed that
every farm, advertised for sale is situated
in or near some city or village, easily ac
cessible to railroad stations, churches, and
school-houses, has new and commodious
buildings, is well watered, etc., advertises
his farm as being very far removed from
any public road ; the buildings neither
new or in good repair ; and the land needs
enriching. The cattle, such as they are.
raised upon the fodder of the place
(brakes, dogacamus, and hardback), he
will sell or give to purchaser of the farm.
The other day, brought an account from
Maine of the shooting of a person in church
by the accidental discharge of a pistol
which a tutor of youth thought fit to carry
in his coat pocket. Now we have from

policeman to take off his hat while the play
was going on, drew a revolver and seri

A young pupil of the New Orleans gram
mar school was scolded by his mother.
" Sammy, Sammy," said she, " why did
you do that ? You might have known you
would hurt yourself." How could I know,
mother ?" replied the youngster, as the
pain from his bruised shin ceased a mo
ment, ' am I a future tense? "
An apprentice sailor fell from the

little hurt. The captain, exclaimed, in
surprise, "Why, where did you come

fellow gathered himself up.
