Tin: Christian advises ministers in
these words : " Do not got excited to
toon. Do not run nwny from your
henrcw. Kngino driving-whceld
whirl fatt on nn icy truck, but when
they draw anything thoy go Mower.
Do not scold tho people. Do not
abuse tho faithful souls who como to
meeting rainy days, because others
aro too lazy to attend. Preach the
best to tho tiuulet a-scmbllcs.
Jesus preached to one woman at the
well, and sho got all Samaria out to
hear him tho next time. Ventilate
your meeting-room. Sleeping In
church is duo to had air oftencr than
to bad manners. Stop preach lug and
talk to folks. Come down from your
etlltcd ways and sacred tones, and
becomo 'as n littlo child.' Tell stor
ies ; Jesus did, and tho common
pcoplo heard him gladly. Relate
your experience ; Paul did, and you
can hardly do better than he."

SrmrrH. Captain Hall was tho com
mander of tho Great Eastern steam
ehip. Ho had fallen iutomich habitual
drunkenness that his most earnest
efforts to reclaim himself proved un
availing. At length ho sought tho
advice of an ancient physician, who
gavo him a prescription which ho
followed faithfully for seven months.
At tho end of that time, ho had lost
all desiro for liquor, although ho had j
many timos been led captive by a
most debasing appetite. Tho pro-t-cription,
which ho afterwards pub
lished, and by which po many other
drunkards have been assisted to re
form, is as follows : Sulnlinto of iron,
5 grains; magnesia, 10 grains; pep
permint water, 11 drachms ; spirit of
nutmeg, 1 drachm ; iwlco a day.
According toofllclal reports, there j
wero In London on tho 10th ult. 120,-,
111 pauper.-, of whom ill, 100 wero in ,
workhouses ami &o,;kj1 received out

At a rccont town meeting In Mos

Koelc Island nnd I'acillc railroad,
about forty miles wcat of Davenport,

A correspondent wisely remark.- of
chicken cholera that "until it it
known what organ is affected, it N
idle to talk of this or that remedy
proving efieutual." I cannot decide
this point, nor can I say what Is tho
cauo of tho disease, though I be
lieve It to bo some hurtful food. I
can only de-cribo the .symptoms and
mention the remedy which 1 found
olllcaelous. Certainly every disease
which carries oil' poultry Is not chol
era. Tho symptoms of true cholera
aro as follows : The fowl droop, and
refuses to eat, and evacuates copi
ously a frothy iiiiiuoii, which looks
like beaten yolk of egg. The craw
Is filled (u-ually much dl-tendctl)
with lluld, and, In parting the feath
ers which cover it, shows a grcenNh
Into through tho -kin. As tho dis
ease progre.cs, tho head become
afl'ected, so that the fowl in unable to
hold it up, even when It can Maud
on its feet, or hold on to the roost ;
finally, it is attacked with convul
sion, ami die". Tho appearance of
the craw I consider dUtluctive of
1 had lo-t more than half my Mock
la-t -prlng, and wasdo-porato, when
a friend suggested carbolic acid as a
remedy. 1 put llvo or six drops Into
two ounces of water, and poured
about half a tcaspoonftil down the
fowl's throat, repeating tho dive
twice or thrice In the day. If the
fowl could not eat, 1 feti it with corn
meal wet with tho carbolic mixture,
in some caes making It like thin
gruel. For tho poultry which could
eat, I prepared the corn-meal In the
same way, and into the trough of
water i put enough carnoiic acid to
impart u decided odor, and make the
fowls shako their heads vigorously
when thoy drank. Tho disease
causes great thirst. This treatment
checked tho spread of tho dheae,
and cured womo very bad cases. In
ono case, tho fowl was so dirty, from
falling and lying in the mud, that I
gavo it a warm bath, wrapped it up
In a piece of old flannel, and kept ft
In tho house all night, giving It a
good doo of the acid. Tho next
morning it could hold up Its head,
and It Is now a Hue, healthy rooster.

correspondent of tho Jlerue Jforli
cole says that not long ago he made a
bargain for a roso bush of magnifi
cent growth and full of buds, lie
waited for them to blow, nnd ex
pected rocs worthy of such a noble
plant and of tho praises bestowed
uikhj It by tho vender, hut when It
blos-omed all his hopes wero blasted.
Tho flowers wero of a failed line,
nnd ho discovered that ho hail only
a middling multlflora, stalo color
enough. JIo therefore resolved to
-acrltleo it to nomo experiments that
he had in view. Ills attention had
been directed to tho effects of char
coal as ntated in somo KnglMi publi
cations. JIo then covered tho earth
iu tho pot in which tho rose bush
was nlmul half an Inch deep with
pulverized charcoal. Komo clays af
terward ho was astonished to see
tho-o which bloomed of as fine a
lively roe color as ho could wish.
JIo determined to repeat tlie experi

through tho south of Kngland, In
visiting a park which contained
many interesting and remarkable
trees, one in full bloom attracted the
special attention of his English
