FARM, GARDEN AM) HOUSEHOLD. Farm Hints nnd Help. In-coming cows should bo treated with great caro. The dry foed will have ren dered them very liable to inflammatory diseases. Gnrget, milk fever, abortion, and such troub.es, affect woll fed cows more thnn others. The blood needs cooling by laxative food. One quart of oil cake meal, mixed with bran scalded, and given as a drink once a day, will be useful. No corn should bo given for several weeks before calving. Bran or middlings will bo more cooling and healthful, but if good hay is given, very little grain of any kind will be needed. Caution now will prevent trouble here after. Whon the calf is expected, the cow should be turned into a loose stall, or into a quiet stable alone. If cuts are found upon sharp shod horses, about the foot or pasterns, wash tun wounds witu warm soap and water, and then apply a pinch of salt, or n lit tle compound tincture of benzoin, which will cause them to heal rapidly. Neglect of this precaution may ca...

FARM, GARDEN AND HOUSEHOLD. The Hoamhold. Breakfasts. Breakfast is a menl about which there is great diversity of opinion. Some will have it that the Freuoh plan of breakfasting at twelve or one o'clock is the proper one, taking only a cup of coffee on rising; other's that a gonil menl before beginning the day's work is absolutely indispensable. We are inclined to favor the last opinion, at least as far as our busy people are oonoernod. It would be rather hard for the father of the family to have nothing but a cup of coffee and a roll to work upon from eight o'clock until one. We are inclined to think that those who favor the Into breakfast system have nothing to call them up early, and so can easily wait to partake of a sort of half break fast half luncheon. Breakfast parties have become quite fashionable of late years. They are of course given at the same hour as lunch, and are only dis tinguishable from that meal by a differ ence in the menu. We propose to give a few good breakfa...

Within the sober realm of leafless trees, The russet year inhaled the dreamy air Like some tanned re aper. io his hour of ease, When all the fields are lying brown and bare. The gray turns looking from their hazy hills, O'er the dnn waters widening in the vales, Bent down tho air a greeting to the mills, On the dull thu ider of alternate flails. ill sights wore mellowed and all sounds sub- dufd, The hills seemed further and the streams sang low, As In a droam the distant woodman hewed His winter lig with many a muffled blow. The embattled forests, erewhile armed with gold, The bannrr bright with every martial hue, Now stood like some sad beaten host of old, Withdrawn afar in time's remotest blue. On sonibo wings the rulturo tried his flight ; The dove scarce heard his sighing mate's complaint ; And, like a s...

The render who may wish to try mush room culture in n nmall way which he had best do m a beginning will find his collar, if he dwells in the city, or any convenient oatnouae, II in the country, a suitable place for a few beds. The material required is horse manure, whioh must be sweated by gentle and careful fermentation for a week or a fortnight, until most of the rank straw and grass is decomposed. Turn over tho mass every two days, and by the end of about a fortnight it will be partially fermented, no longer offensive to smell, and in foot sweet enough to be plnoed in the cellar of a dwolliug. An avornge depth of a foot or eighteen inches makes a good bod, which should be about a yard wido, with its contents weH packed. The shape is immaterial. It is useless for the cultivator to prepare his own spawn, os it can be purchased very cheaply from nurserymen, at from fifteen to twenty-live cants a pound. The quality, however, is ...
