A NAIL IX TBIP STOMACH. .
A correspondent of the London Dai
ly Telegraph writes : TJpou ' readiag
the accounts in the morning papers of
the fatal result which : occured to a
gentleman from swallowing a nail, I
felt much regret that I had not, for the
benefit of the public generally, made
the fallowing case known ; A few years
since- the . landlady . of the bouse in
which I was residing, informed ae in
a state of great alarm, that one : of her
childred, about four years of j age, had
swallswed a nail. She said that she
was sure of the fact, and that it was an
iron nail about two inches long. She
requested my advice as to how to '' act,
and, as to whether she should give the
child a dose of castor eiL I told her
not to give the child anything to relax
the bowels; and upon reflection I ad
vised "her to make the child a bard
dumpling (or , its dinner. As I, was
quite aware that the case was danger
ous, I advised her to consult a medical
man. This she did, and informed me
that he quite agreed with my opinion,
and I was pleased to find that she had
not brought back any "mixtures.'', v..
-i In the evening again she consulted
me as to the child's supper, and I ad
vised another dumpling, with as little
drink as possible. ; The. next morning
she informed me; that the child had
slept well, and had not exhibited any
symptoms of hysterics. Upon asking
me what she. should give the child for
her breakfast, she could not refrain
from smiling when I advised another
hard dumpling. In the course of the
forenoon,' however, she smiled most
satisfactorily upon entering my room.
and at the same time placing before
me an iron f piked nail, about an inch
and a half . long, - which the child had
passed without showing any conscious
ness of its presence. 1 had much dif
ficulty in persuading the mother that
I was not connected with the medical
profession, but was merely -guided by
ar: general knowledge of the intestinal
organs and by common sense. ' '-

in my opinion, however we maybe

Extractii from a discussion at the
Hess Road Farmer's Club :
R. F- Ikucher thought profit a rela
tive term, inasmuch as what one class
would think profitable . another would
thing to) trifling to be worthy of notice.
Farming paid to seme extent. We
see men i ll over the country wbe com
menced e ither empty handed or with
very limited mean, and. by, years of
industry i nd economy they hare attain
ed to a competence. . None ever attain
to great, wealth exclusively by farming.
It is notorious that the farmers of
Western New Yorkwboceeameisced
poor are broken-down by bard labor
Men of forty are really aa old as they
ought to be at sixty, and the. question-
arises do they get an ample renomera
tion for t uch a waste of muscle,, and
life-force to say nothing of the anxiety:
of mind. .' -; .' ; .j'.
Had often heard it remarked t that v
farmers could not afford to hire, ! as it
often took the produce of the , hired .
and of t"he employer.'tojpay the help;
and eve:a farm labor is generally cheap
as compared with that paid by other
classes. : We must come to one of two
conclusions, either) farming does not.

mechanics, manufacturers, t miners,
lumbermen and boatmen, all can and
do hire, and at liberal wages, . while
with fairmers it isj a constant theme
that they cannot afford to hire. Since
the war, farmers have done first rate.

sufferitigs of others.
D. lS'ye. Had thought he could not
hire at a profit, but had hired a good
deal some good and some poor help.
Thought farming a safe business; men
in other business ran greater risks, and
occasionally made great profits, and
also lustained great losses. Many
farmers have donewell, commencing
all in debt and sarrounding'themselves
with broad acres and a home of plenty.
Could not'say it has been remarkably
profitable for him. When he com

J. S. Woodard thought if Mr. Nye
had pit on an acre of buildings on bis
farm, it must hare been profitable for
him.- We use up more than we are
aware, yery few keeping accurate ac
counts of their income andexpenses.
Only one merchant in ten succeeds,
manufacturers are but little better,
while with speculators not one in a
hundred retires wealthy. Farmers
would be surprised if they would keep
an accurate account of the amount they
use in their families. ' He bad kept an
accurate account of the labor and of
the produce of one of his farms. ' Ex
pense for labor was $100, while the
income was $1,200. Worth of farm,
5,000, so that after deducting ' for
interest and taxes a nice amount is left
for superintending. ' "f ;

fitable or he would quit the business.'

profitable. Had seen an estimate in
the N. Y. Tribune, showing that only
one merchant in fifty retires wealthy
only one banker in thirty, and trades
men about the same, while ; with far
mersi nearly all do slowly accumulate.
Farmers deal with nature and get a
just return for all they bestow upon her.
Nature does not cheat, nor will she al
low herself to. be cheated. , Farming
is htiathful, and a large share of a far
mer a food is used while fresh . and in
perfection, which is quite a considera
tion. . , . , . - .. .
. , H. Duncan had tried living in villa
ges, and was sick of it, and Jiked far
ming very much. -He considered him
self rich, yes, independently rich, even
on it small farm. -He was contented,
and a contented , mind is a continual
feafL He stood on terra firms, and
was satisfied. , . ;
CharfesStarks, Farmers . do not
usually take into account their living,
while .' mechanics " frequently barely
male a living with all their earnings.
. M. Har wood, Alt men are not cal
culated for farmers, nor all for mer
chants or mechanics. The : farmer's
life is not surrounded with temptations,
nor his children , subject to uch evil
influences as those in cities and vilages.
Farmers, on an average, do as well as
any other buines?, and above all it is a
healthy busiuess. " ' . . t - -
