How to Keep Flour Sweet. The Milling Journal nddressod an in quiry to a leading miller as to the best method of keeping flour sweet. The following is his reply: "If the wheat is perfectly dry when put into a bin or garner, it will keep a long while with out heating. It will, however, keep much longer in a bin. where a current of fresh air is admitted, than where it is perfectly close. " Second. 'As to the vessel used for flour,' we have no experience, except with tbe ordinary flour barrel. The best are made of oak, either white or t red, made in the usual way of perfectly seasoned stuff. The moisture of green wood has a very injurious effect on the keeping properties of flour. "Third. 'Of the building or room used for storing.' \Yo believe, from our experience, that Hour keeps better in a cool, dry, airy room than any where else. Daring the heat of Sit miner, flour should not bo stored either in a cellar or garret, but in the central stories of a building, kept open, so as to have a...

The de mon tore from around me the robes of my sacred office, and sent me forth chnrchless and godless, n very hissing and byword among men.

San Francisco Correspondence. San Fbancisco, Sept. 30, IS7t>. If any one were to take a walk along the city front at the present time, he would iii some respects bo reminded of the flush days of '49, when tho bay was crowded with ships from every quarter of the earth, bringing to these shores the adventurous Argonauts, who came here iv search ef tho golden fleece. Pretty well fleeced many of them wero, too, before they got through with it; hut still they poured in, aud tonnage was iv demand for live freight, and the supplies to feed that freight in it* long trip round the Horn; but there was very little to fill up with on the return voy age, except the ballast torn out from the rough declivities of Telegraph Hill.

SATURDAY, NOVEMBBB 4, I*7o. Tlio Election- An election is always an important event. The one next Tuesday will be an important one for the whole coun try. All should remember that the one chief end t'> be sought by an election is a full aud honest expression of the will of the people. In view of the near approach ol the day, we have two ideas to offer which we think arc worthy ot sei ions consideration on that day. The first is this, that every voter should go to the polls aud vote. Do not allow any matter of business to keep you away; do not allow any inconvenience to detain you, but go everybody and vote. Tins is your privilege, it ia your duty. Let every man discharge it faithfully. The second idea is in the nature of a word of caution to voters, lie careful how you credit sensational stories hatched up just before election and intended to damage candidates. Gross slanders are sometimes gotten up on the eve of an election, when there is no time for refutation or denial. V lite...

Effect of Dnrhness on Fruit. The influence of darkness on Hi" col ors of fruits and flowers is sometimes remarkable, and different fromsnpposed results, it wns observed many years ago that some apples grown in North ern Ohio were colored a higher red than tie: same sorts grown in the Southern parts of tho State, under longer sum mers and :i inure nearly perpendicular sun. The effect of darkness on the coloring of Summer pears has been ob served by fruit growers -specimens which are nearly ripened on the sunny side of the tree assuming a more bril liant reel If placed in a dark drawer a week or toll days before softening, than if oxposed to light, Some curious facts have lately been brought out by Pro fessor Sachs, of Wnr/burg, relative to a similar influence on flowers. Bulbs grown and bearing (lowers in a dark room presented their natural hues : nas turtium hail nmre yellow (lowers in the dail.. wall Dowers had brighter blos soms; other plants had paler flowers; the effects were di...
