The fcareity of water for two or three
years past has suggested to me a plan bv
which farms may be continually supplied
with good stock water. Sometime last
summer I saw the way a stock weil was
fullv surpli. d with v.-atr, by reeeivin
water lrom i liou.-e in t lie tank, and
aig through a small sand dram some
leet in length to the well. A sand

earth taken from it. Acting on
an, I would make as deep a pond
oa hiiih land as near where water would
be most convenient, as possible. Nest
make n 1 tr e and deep citctti as near
the pond as can be, and have a fall from
the bottoai of the pond to about two
feet from the top of the cistern. Con
nect the two by a sand drain, and water
would come very pure into the cistern,
even if the pond was not very clean.
The advautago would be a pond when
the water was good, cistern water tpure)
when the pond was hot, as in summer,
or frozen, as in winter. The pond sup
plying rhe cistern from the bottom, the
pond would fill from the drain as fast as
drawn from. That good ponds can be
made on high land, not the highest, any
one may be convinced by a little obser
vation a d some calculation.
At first thought one would not sup
pose a pond of any siza or depth could
be obtained from one acre of land. Sup
pose we lay oat tor a pond, four by five
rols twenty square rods, or one-eighth
of an acre the usual amount of water,
as rain and snow, that falls riming a
year, is estimated at two and a half feet.
Allowing three-fifths to waste by evapo
ration and absorption, you will have one
foot of water in the pond. Multiply by
eiaht, and it gives you eiuht feet of wa
ter to the acre in a pond of one-eighth
of an acre Generally a pond made on
high land will hold water better than on
low, because the clay is nearer the sur
face. 1 know a pond on tolerably high
land, that has afforded water for about
twenty head of horses and tattle, and
abo t seventy head of lu'cs, and only
irave out when frozen solid. Luring ex
tremes of heat and cold a good supply
of pure cistern water would be enough
better for stock than pond water to pay
for the time of pumpiu?. I have suffer
ed no great inconvenience from want of
water this fall and winter, but I have
seen neighbors spending time enough in
hauling water f.om creeks for hogs, and
driving their cattle three miles to water.

ike an illustration. Pinnev & Co.,

000 of forest tree seedlings; and on their
list you will find some of ttie leading
American evergreens are oderel at the
aUonishing low price of 50 cents and a
dollar per 1,000.
Au ent rrinsing young man runs over
their list, and sends $15 or SJO, and gets
as many thousand trees ; he makes his
estimates, and in his imagination he sees
eighty acres clothed with forest greeu the
year around, asthejesult of his invest

sets them out as lie would his ash seed

first hot south wind has turned thetu all
up; then Pinaey & Co. are great hum
bugs; whereas, if he had understood
the wants of his little trees, taken from
ths deep cool forests, he might have
saved them ; and his vision of the future
might have been realized.
Last year in June, in a very hot and
Iry time, I received 10.000 White Pines
from the forests ot Wisconsin. It did
not seem possible that thev could live.
but I determined to do mv best. They
had very poor roots, having been pulled
up m a uiy time.
iirt the ground was well prepared,
plenty of water was used, then I mulch
ed them as high as I dared to, for fear
of smothering. Then I covered them
ail up with a heavy screen ot green
branches, so that the sun was almost en
tirely excluded. 1 he summer was dry.
and the winter has been cold, but yet I
find about i5 per cent, of my trees aro
alive. Hits season tbey will neeu uut
little care, and tha next spring they will
do to transplant. Young cone-bearing
trees niad always be screened, but as
they grow slowly at first, they can be
plautc-i very elostdy." 1 he roots oi trees
must be kept from tho sun and air ; if a
resinous tree gets dry in the least there
is no hope for it. When trees of larger
size are transplanted, the greatest care
must also be observed.
I'he heaviest propagator m the United
States informs me that when compelled
to move a tree in a very dry time he
used a heavy pounder, and pounds the
earth about the root to shut out the air
a much as possible ; at the same time
leaving the surface finely pulverized, to
ke?p from baking.

In a firstclass laundry starch is ru.ida
in the u-ual manner ; to a pail of starch a
whole sperm candle is u-e I. When the
linen is dry, it is dipped in the coU
starch and ironed in the ordinary way:
then it is dampened with a wet cloth and
the poh hin? iron pressed over it. This
is an ordinary smoothing iron, gtoutid
off so that the edges are al! rounding.
To this last manipulation the linen i'

A nice wholesome, palatabl.; and eco

of good apples, paring core and all, if
free from defects, aud boil thoroughly in
water sufficient to cover them". When
soft press through a coarse cloth, allow
ing most of the pulp to pass, and let this
stand til) cool. Pour off the clear liquid,
add a small quantity of tapioca, (dissolved
in coll w;tter and slightly cooked, thin.)
with sufficient white sugar, and then foil"
away suilident to make a jelly of the
right consistency, and you have as nice
a preserve as an epicure desires, clear
and beautiful. The bottom, or the pulp, of
the Ci st, cooked with some nice molasses,
makes a very fine, apple butter, both of
which will keep a long time.

I wonder what makes papa tell such
nice stories to visitors about his hiding
his master's rattan, when he went to
school, and about his running away from
the school mistress when she went to

in a dark room, because I tried just onco
to be as smart as he had been?

Our correspondents frequently inquire
how to do this. Wp find the following
in an exchange, and give it for their
benefit and what it is wurth : Ladies
have a horror of those black ctn'tni nces
on the face railed moles. Even home y
men dislike them, but there they ord
inarily remain as guidrs in giving a
description of an applicant for a passport.
A mole is a thickening of the epidermis,
or outer skin, prolably induced by an'
obstruction in tho outward ends of a
cluster of sudoric ducts or sweat tubes.
To be clear of them readily, run a fino
needle through one sids to the other
Let an assi-tunt take hold of both
ends of the needle and pull, so as to make
a neck of clear skin at its tine. It is.
neither painful, difficult, nor attended
with hardly a tinge of bliod. Next
ligate that neck behind the out-dragged
mole with a ddicate, strong, waxed silk
thread that cuts, off the circulation ; clip
away the unu-ed thread and wait the
result. A slight loci! inflammation
ensues, which is the gluing together the
new surface of the stretched skin. In a
few days the old offense drops off, deprived
of nutrition, leaving no scar. If a littlo
reddi.-h by the remait.s of a subsiding
inflammation, wet the spot occasionally
with cold water. Proceed to the next,
and the next, trrhtim. Before aware ot'
it any mole disSgured face may Leooma
