Trees and Plants as Purifiers. The beneficial effects which plants and trees may produce on dwelling sites and on the air of habitations have befen made the subject of a paper by Dr. James • Evans before* the South Carolina Medical association. The network of fine fibrous roots of trees aiid plants, traversing the soil in every direction, feeds on organic matter which would other wise uudergo decomposit on, polluting th« soil, air and surface water. The vegetation also absorbs excess of moisture and drains the soil. The moisture is afterward exhaled from the leaves, and there is no doubt that the plants also exhale, with the moisture,-some of their active and peculiar principles. The scent of mint and thyme.is due to methol and thymol, anti- , septics of the highest value, and it is not improbable that their exbal- • utions have the same" property.— The eucalyptus is remarkable as a prophylactic against malaria. Its leaves ? immersed in hot water, are turid to be an efficient disinf...

The Value of Sheep. There is nothing that will pay so well on the farm for the money invested in them as sheep; the profits are bv no means confined to thoroughbred, but a good, healthy bunch of scrub ewes, bought at the proper time and given good treatment, will pay very near a hundred per cent, on the investment. We were impressed with this a few days ago when conversing with a joung farmer; he pointed to a flock of fifty or sixty commou ewes and remarked: . "They buy every tliiug my family require that I do nob raise on my farm, they increase the j-ield of some of my crops fifty per cent., and still leave me with a small balance to help pay farm hands." These ewes are bought every year in July and August, at from $1.75 to 92 per head, are bred to Shropslrre rams, given good fall pasturage and generous feed thro' the winter and during lambing season. Fifty ewes will give him on the average forty lambs lor mar ket, that bring from $2.50 to f3;say Ihe average is 82.75. As soon as th...

An examination of the motives, however, which, it is said, prompt ed his resignation and of those who are to follow his example fur? nishes the explanation which will excuse them for violating one of the fundamental rules of the Ma? honeite fraternity.

Hints on the ?Smiajriiuent of Cliil drru. hi the regulation of study, the peculmrity of.characterand dispo sitlon, and the extent of rapacity, must he studied. Generally speak? ing, children should first be taught to exercise their bodily senses by observing objects, by listening to sounds, by noticing the smell of flowers. Those who teach young children should speak to them properly, not lisping or using silly words, for they can understand sense better than nonsense. Children should be uniformly taught to practice obedience, truthfulness, justice and kindness, ami good examples should be con stautly set before them. The practice of frightening little children, in order to make them quiet, has. in souse cases, resulted in convulsions and death. Relating ghost stories and other frightful tales to them has frequent? ly exercised an injurious influence for life.
