St. anmamn *ar W. G. KENiTZEL Eaitor. COVIXGTO_, - LOI'ISIAN A. SANITARY PRECAUTION. Why Farmers Should be Prepared te JCouataons nesses. . Never before, in our history, has such little care been bestowed upon the san itary condition of our large cities, and on the farms, as security seems to pos sess all; nevertheless the cholera is knocking at our doors for admittance. No one can object to a class of persons permitting this state of affairs if they alone are to be the sufferers, but such is not the case. Malarial fevers have poisoned the inhabitants of towns that never knew its presence before; diph theria has stalked into the households and snatched the loveliest and dearest of the little ones from the family fire side, while the small-pox has held high carnival over its victims to such degree that human hands were unwilling to deposit the festering bodies away. The foe lies hidden in the accumulations, while we are nursing it in its feebleness until it gains strength. At some ti...

Before entering upon an account of the manner in which the pernicious habit is practiced, it would be well to describe how the opium is prepared for smoking, as but few smokers, even those who are veteran fiends, seem to know any thing about it. Williams, in "'The Middle Kingdom," thus de scribes the process: The utensils used for preparincg opium for smoking consist chiefly of three hemispherical brass pans, two bamboo filters, two portable furnaces, earthen pots. ladles, straining cloths and sprinkler+.. The opium ball, which is covered with poppy leaves, being cut in two. the interior is taken out and the opium adhering to or contained in the leafy covering is simmered three times, each time a pint of spring water being used. and the liquid strahine into an earthen pot; cold water ip Ipored over the dregs after the third hoiling, and from half a ...

The raiding of the Turkomans was essentially a slave-dealing system. founded on the assumption of a right of property in human flesh and blood. Men, women and children were carried off to Khiva and Bokhara, thus placing the impassable desert between them and their homes, so that escape was all but impossible-this security producing a corresponding value in the slave mar ket of these places. These predatory excursions were known as "chapows" by the Persians, and as "alamans" by the Turkomans. The number of men engaged in one of them depended much on the character of the leader: if lie had a previous reputation for success in such expedi tions, large numbers would flock to ham when a new raid was projected: at times as many as five or six thousand men would eingage in one of these ex peditions. Horses were put under a peculiar diet and trai...

It is waste of time to advise farmers to keep an itemized account with the farm, the stock and the family, for not one in a hundred will do it. Indeed, it is hardly necessary that they should, but some accounts ought to be kept, and the hardest thing about them is the forming of the habit of putting down each day's transactions. The plan I have settled on is first to keep a cash account. In this I put down each day what I actually pay out or receive. I tried at first keeping both on one page with double columns but soon abandoned that, as I much prefer a separate pace for each. Ifindit almost a necessity to run so counts to some extent at the store, as we have farm produce to sell, but in order that I may know how the ae counts stand, I keep a pass-book with each merchant or grocer; nothing bought of or sold to them goes on the cash account till settlement day. ...

When the bristles of the wild boar oi Russia are imported, they are very dirty. and are not straight. The curve is ow ing to the fact that the bristles grow toward the tail of the animal and hug the body. By boiling they are made pliable, and are then bound with cord in bunches an inch in diameter, and dried in rooms kept at a temperature of 120 degrees. As bristles are bought by weight, the purchaser of raw material loses ten per cent. by the absorption e. the moisture, and if he washes them he loses another ten per cent, because of the weight of dirt of which they are re lieved. The importer of bristles always stores them in a wet warehouse on the river front, so they will absorb water and weigh more. He also binds each bun dle with about fifty feet of cord, which is sometimes substituted for the native bark string which is put around ...
