This "counting out," too, was done despite the tact that the clerk of th...

WATERING I>LAMTg IN POTS* Some people attempt to keep pot plants without giving them any water at all; the resul f is familiar to every one. 'TJsnally, however, t!ie earth in the pot or box is kept, soaked, and very mnch in the conof an ordinary swamp. It is even said that malaria has resulted from living in rooms containing house plants, owing to the damp soil. We have ourselves seen dead evergreens pulled out of boxes full of mud. Neustc Erfinding gives utterance to the following timely remarks: Watering plants is one of the most important things in the culture ot house plants, and very special care should be devoted to it. Plants ought not to be wet until they need it. It will be evident that they require wetting if, on taking the earth from the pot, it crumbles to pieces like dust; a'sure sign is to knock on the side of the pot, near the middle, with the finger knuckle. If it gives forth a hollow ring, the plant needs water; if there is a dull sound, there is still mo...

Some of the most expensive wraps are long, cloaks of embossed plush or velvet, with borders of precius fur or needlework passementerie, each raised flower costing as much as a yard of ordinary trimming.

Information received from authentic sources indicate that no part of the city is exempt lrom the foul disease, and hundreds of cases are reported in the eastern sectiou of the city. Already the mortality from the disease has been very large, and there must be yet very many more victims among those now infected, even if the spread of the contagion is cheeked by tiie stringent sanitary regulations recently adopted by the city authorities. An idea of the prevalence of the disease may be formed from the fact that the number of the vacci...

The necesity for it, we thought, existed not only as a means of devising a plan to bring the Democratic voters to the polls, but as much for the purpose of protecting the ballot cast against the inroads of an ever vigilant aud unscrupulous foe. For these reasons we, alike with the other Democratic journals of the State, have subjected ourselves to an attack by a correspondent in a late issue of the Virginian. We infer from reading the communication in question, the writer opposes a c...

A WW WORDS ABOUT CIAMN. . Prom 130,000 to 300,000 clam a tiro during the summer sokl in the J'hiJatielphitt market daily. Large as these figures appear it is said that in New York city ten clams nne sold to onejin Chicago. In Chicago the season ends when the oyster season begins, bat in New York they are as much in demand in the fall and winter as they are in the other seasons. Dealers along Delaware avenue say that they have little or no sale for clams in the winter, while in New York they command a high price. The clam is indigenous to tfTfe Atlantic coast from Cape May to Tuckerton, and in the Chesapeake Bay to Cherrystone, Black Kiver and Chincoteague. Like their sister mollusk, the oyster, they are divided up into aeyeral varieties or grades. The coarsest is the mud clam, or blue nose, which is dug out of the mud with tongs. Choicer ones are called sand clams, which are caught by itien wading in shallow water and /•feeling" them with their feet. The very best is the sod clam, w...
