The cheapest and best way to make a -horse-power for dairy and other light use is to put a light drum on a center post, high enough to have the belt clear the horse's head. Attach a sweep ten or twelve feet long to the center post, so that the track in which the horse walks will be from twenty to twenty-four feet in diameter if possible. Let the track be soft ground. The whole arrangement may be made of white pine, except the sweep, which should be hard wood. Let the drum be about ten feet in diameter and six inches face. Use a two-inch rubber belt. Make a small pulley from four inches to a foot in diameter, accord ing as you want fast or slow motion. If you want the motion still faster, gear up with a second belt and set of pulleys. The direction of the motion may be changed by quarter twist in the second belt, or bypassing the first belt over idler pulleys. This arrangement will be almost noiseless, while the clatter and jar of a circular platform would be enough to drive a sensitive or nervous person almost crazy. Besides, it is much easier and safer to teach a horse to follow a circular path than to keep his balance on a revolving plat form. ' Ripening of Frnlt. Prof. Turner says : "Previous to ma turity, fruits are formed of compact cel lular tissue, containing the elements of woody fiber, and filled with a liquid con taining very little sugar, a gummy sub stance and a large quantity of free acid. During maturation a part of the acid dis appears by the action of the oxygen of the air, and the cellulosetissue dimin ishes and the proportion of sugar in creases, insomuch that instead of hard, woody acid fruits, if the maturation has been complete, fruits yield a sweet, sir upy juice." According to Prof. Mulder, "fleshy fruits and several kinds of berries ac quire while ripening a much greater pro portion of sugar than they contained before maturity, although full grown. Kipe fruits have not an acid taste be cause they contain a large quantity of a basis by which they are saturated, and not because they are disguisedby sugar. " Fremy says : "At the moment of ripening, the acids of fruits are par tially saturated, and form salts of lime or potash." How to Pill Empty Comb. A correspondent having asked Mrs. Tupper the following question : " How we can best fill up a number of hires of empty combs with bees? We have ten living colonies healthy, though weak, and twenty-nine hives full of comb," she re plies, through the Iowa Homestead, as follows : " The best way to fill up your comb is to watch the bees, now that warm .wgathprlmH fomn, anil nvpry few dnja put one empty comb between two that the queen has filled with brood. In this way you will soon have any hive full of brood if honey is plenty; if not, you must feed quite liberally with sugar sirup. There will be no trouble in getting your hives all full of bees again if you manage in this way. If the season is good, it may be necessary for you to extract honey frequently from the comb to give the queens room." The Nature ofGnano. It is a generally received opinion that the deposits of guano are exclusively the excrements of birds. Dr. Habel has in vestigated this matter microscopically and chemically, and has found that after treating the substance with an acid, the insoluble residue is composed of fossil sponges and other marine animals and plants precisely similar in constitution to such as still exist in those seas. The fact, too, that the anchors of ships in the neighborhood of the guano islands often bring up guano from the bottom of the ocean, is quite in opposition to the prevalent belief. Dr. Habel there fore considers that the deposits of guano must be the result of the accumulation of fossil plants and animals whoso or ganic matter has been transformed into nitrogenous nubstance, the mineral por tion remaining intact. Cliarconl for Poultry. The benefit which fowls derive from eating charcoal is, I believe, acknowl edged. The method of putting it before them is, however, not well understood. Pounded charcoal is not in the shape in which fowls usually find their food, and consequently is not very enticing to -4hem. m- ' I have found that corn burned on the cob, and the refuse which consists al most entire lj of the grains reduced to charcoal, and still retaining their per fect shape 'placed before them, is greed ily eaten by them, with a marked im provement in their health, as is shown by the brighter color of their combs, and their sooner producing a greater average of ejgs to the flock than before. Poultry World. A Fccd-Cntter. A correspondent gives his method of converting a mower into a feed-cutter .. follows : Place the machine standing upright on the back end, and brace it firmly. Then brace up the bar so that it will be steady, and fit a board on the top of the fingers of the guard-bar, so that the hay cannot get over the bar. Then make a table to feed on. Throw the machine into the gear, put the hay on tho table and turn the wheel. The hay is fed against the under side of the bar. With a horse power and belt to tho wheel, this makes a first-rate power feed-cutter, doing tho work fast and wclL French Beans. m$ra eTAmcrican Grocer says that 800 bushdBOi' beans are on the way to this fntry from France. The lateness of our own crop has left the market bare of supplies, and thiujjranr-rrence of the import oUM - nconse- qnence. jg ' L A CHECKER-BOARD CRANIUM. , Here is something remarkable. A woman in New Haven was recently be reft of her scalp by the idiosyncracies of a shaft and belt. The doctors saw that to remedy the evil they would have to recourse to transplanting, and so they actually succeeded in getting a sufficient number of pieces from other people's heads to give this unfortunate woman a new scalp. We hope those New Haven doctors used more discre tion than did he who attended a man named Finlay, who met with a similar accident in Oriskany, N. Y., some thir teen years ago. Bits of scalp from seventeen different persons were secured by this doctor and adroitly stitched to the head of Mr. Finlay. When it was done, people came miles to see Finlay's head, and Finlay himself, with his checker-board cranium, was the happi est man in Oriskany. But when the capaliary glands got in working order, and the hair commenced to grow, the top of that man's head presented the most extraordinary spectacle on record. The doctor, who was about half the time in liquor, had consulted expedi ency rather than judgment, and secured that new scalp without any reference to future developments. We never saw anythiug like it. Here was a tuft of yellow hair, and next to it a bit of black, and then a flame of red, and a little like silk, and more like tow, with brown hair and gray hair, and sandy hair, and cream colored hair, scattered over his entire skull. And what a mad man that Finlay was, and nobody could blame him. He would stand up against the barn for an hour at a time and sob and swear. It was very fortunate that the doctor was dead. Ho went off two weeks before with blue aguo, which is a mild sort of disease. Finlay kept his hair cut short, but that didn't make any difference. Then he tried dyes, but they only made matters worse. Then he got a wig, and this covered up the de formity ; but sometimes at church he would get asleep, and the wig would fall off, and make the children cry. Once at the county fair he fell asleep and the wig dropped off, and the com mittee on domestic goods, when they came around, stood in front of Finlay's head for some five minutes in wrapped delight. They then immediately decided that it was the most ingenious piece of patch-work in the list, and never discov ered the mistake until they attempted to pin the premium card to it. At that Finlay awoke, and knocked down the chairman of the committee and chased the others out of the building. We hope those New Haven doctors have been more particular, as it is not a sub ject to trifle with. Danbury News. I'RECOCIOUS PRIGS. One of the most ingenious and daring thefts on record was perpetrateda-sLort time since at the village of Brierly Hill, England. A lad entered the store of a grocer of the place and bought a roll of bread, which he asked the man to stuff down the back of his jacket, as his com panion outside would take it away from him if he saw it. The grocer complied with the apparently innocent request, and having had his loaf placed in its original hiding place the boy left. Hardly had he quitted the store when another lad rushing in, exclaimed : "Do you know what that chap has done ? he has prigged your watch ! " The grocer looked in horror, and saw his watch chain dangling and his watch gone. " There he goes ! " said his informant, pointing to a figure seen going down the street ; and the storekeeper immediately rushed out in pursuit, leaving the store unguarded. When he reached the cor ner the supposed thief had vanished, and returning to his store he found that during his absence the informer had emptied the till and gone off with the money. The two thieves have so far escaped caphire. JPENNSl'L VANIA ENTERPRISE. The project of laying down a pipe be tween the petroleum region in Western Pennsylvania and some seaport city, whereby crude oil may be sent to an ocean market cheaper than by railroad, has been revived. Just now Pennsyl vania seems to be ahead of the world in the matter of starting enterprises, of which piping oil to New York or Phila delphia is one. The Trans-Atlantic bal loon voyage originated there, as did the scheme to render the Ohio river naviga ble by pumping a supply of water from Jjflka Erie. Some time since a Pennsyl vania man suggested that salt could be male much cheaper by bringing brine from Syracuse to the coal beds than by carrying the coal to the brine wells in cars ; bnt New York was reluctant to part with her salt works and the rev enues derived from them. Now an other Pennsylvanian proposes to supply all the cities in the Middle and Western States with gas derived from gas wells, by means of pipes leading'from Erie and other places where" gas fssues from the ground inlarge- quantities. MAN AND WIFE. Among the subjects to be discussed at the coming "Congress of American Women" is the propriety of " an equal division of salaries between husband and wife." A contemporary suggests that this generous proposition must, of course, refer exclusively to a salary earned by the wife, inasmuch as the husband's income is already by law, lia ble for his wife's debts as well as for her daily maintenance, being thus vir tually altogether at her disposal, whilst her own money is legally sacred from his touch, or from that of her credi tors. JAPANESE JUSTICE. A Japanese Police Commissioner has been cashiered, and his entire estate confiscated, for taking a bribe to wink at the doings of a disorderly character. How fortunate thatou?-eiTrhzation is more advance'T' THE SICKNESS AND BE A TH OF CAFT. HALL. A New York Herald correspondent interviewed Dr. Bissell, the surgeon of the Hall Arctic exploring expedition, on the arrival of the Buddington party at Dundee, Scotland. In relation to the sickness and death of the chief of the expedition, Dr. Bissell said : " Since arriving here we find by Amer ican papers that several very silly and absurd rumors of a mischievous ten dency have been abroad. It is quite possible that the Government at Wash ington prefers that we reserve what we have to say for graver discussion, but I must emphatically contradict the state ment that Capt. Hall died other than a natural death. He died of apoplexy. He appeared to be in perfect health when entering upon the voyage. I no ticed nothing unusual in his health up to the period of his illness. The rumor that he was poisoned is too absurd to be seriously entertained. The rumor may have been founded on the hallucination of the raving patient." The Herald correspondent adds : Schumann, the engineer, says that Hall was in continual apprehension of being shot, but was not aware that any one member of the crew more than another excited his suspicions. Another phase of his mania was a determination not to eat or drink anything unless it was first tasted by some person. The tasting was mainly done by Hannah, the Es quimaux woman. When he rallied, and for a while recovered his wonted intel lect, he would say to Capt. Buddington, "If I die, you must still go on the North Pole." He would say, "My last wish is that you strive to get to the North Pole. Don't let my death bo a hiudrance to the accomplishment of this great undertaking." STEPHEN GIRARD' S MEMORY. Stephen Girard," says a writer in a Philadelphia paper, " had a remarkable memory, seldom forgetting anything to which his attention had once been called. As an instance, when, in 1793, his ship Voltaire was built, laborers were scarce, on account of a fever raging at the time, and Girard person ally assisted his favorite carpenter, ' Jimmy Humphries,' in driving in the copper bolts which held the breast-hook fastening in the bow. In 1812, during the war, the Voltaire required repairing, and it was overhauled at Kensington. It was necessary to remove the copper bolts which held the fastening, in order to replace some wood work, and it be came necessary to know whether the bolts had been riveted from the inner or outer side. The same carpenter, Humphries, was assisting in tho repair ing of the vessel, but was unable to find the bolt heads. Girard, who was stand- I ing near, smiled quietly, noticing which, Humphries asked, rather jokingly, 'Perhaps you know something about them, sir ?' The old man laughed, and said: ' Why, Jimmy, don't you remem ber that hot afternoon in '93, when you and I put in those bolts ? The star board ones are riveted from the outside, and the larboard from the inside. Through all the whirling memories of that wonderful head, the old man's mind had gone back to the simple in cident of nineteen years before, with perfect accuracy." DRUG STORES SCARCE IN VIENNA. An honr's walk this morning through the most populous parts of Vienna, in search of aSeidlitz powder, was a fail ure, as far as the object of the search was concerned. We could not find an apothecary shop in all this long walk and diligent search. In the same space we could have found fifty in Balti more, or in any other American city. Being in pursuit of knowledge, we made inquiry as to the cause of this scarcity, desiring to know whether the sages of Vienna had discovered that Shakespeare was right when he consigned " physic to the dogs." The physicians of whom we inquired assured us that, although the people did not physic themselves much in Vienna, an average amount of medicine was consumed. The scarcity of apothecaries grew out of tho fact that the law was very strict as to the quali fications of all aspirants, and that they must obtain a certificate from an exam ining board, all of whom are apothe caries and interested in restricting the number. Thus it is that the business is kept in certain families, and that very few except such of their children as take a fancy to the 'business are inducted to its mysteries. The difficulty that a stranger experienced in finding them was partly owing to the fact that they had no competition in their several neighborhoods, made very little display, and very often had their establishments in back streets or courts, where con venience or cheap rent induced the location. They charge high prices, and are generally quite wealthy. Vienna Letter. PULLMAN CAR COMPANY. Sleeping cars and drawing-room cars of this company aro now in use on 152 different lines of railroad in the United Statos, on which the company have 700 cars in all, and 120 new ones have just beem completed. Twelve millions of dollars are represented in the capital stock. Every car costs from $17,000 to $20,000 ; one of them is running on the New York and Erie broad-gange which cost more than $50,000. A system is in progress under this extensive organ ization by which they will sell tickets in London, Paris, Berlin or St. Peters burg, and contract to convey passengers to San Francisco or any other point in the United States, including everything, not only ocean travel and the care of baggage, but also the commissariat of the traveler, so that he can either find his effects at his destination, or can stop at one or more points for days and resume his journey. PERSONAL PARAGRAPHS. Mb. Joseph Arch, the great English agricultural labor agitator, has arrived in this country. Tee cook at a Lafayette hotel is anx ious to wager that he can kill, dress and cook a-elncken in six minutes. The London Cosmopolitan would be pleased to see ex-Confederate Judah P. Benjamin Lord Chief Justice of En gland. Mbs. H. B. Stowe, at her home in Florida, has kept open a school of fifty pupils during the summer at her own expense. NiiiSson's real name was Tornernjeim, but she couldn't risk tho ruination of her voice every time she had to tell who she was. Mb. Mitchell, a California agricul turist, has gathered this year 600,000 bushels of wheat from a little patch of 40,000 acres. If Chang and Eng, the Siamese twins, should get intoxicated, what a picture it would make. We should probably see Chang high and Eng raving. Gen. Myeb ("Old Probabilities") is in luck. His wife, who is the only heir, by the death of her mother, has recently inherited a round $1,000,000. Mbs. Sabah J. Hale, the editor of Godcy'8 Lady's Book, is 85 years old, still vigorous in body and in mind. Her maiden name was Sarah Josepha Buell. She has been a widow ever since 1822. It is said that when tho proof of the new 50 cent stamp was shown to Treasurer Spinner he detected the strik ing resemblance of the vignette to Beau Hickman, and to prevent mistakes had engraved under the likeness : " Sand. Dexter Sect. Treasy. 1801." The Queen of Belgium and the Princess Louise were recently caught in a shower while out riding, and on ap plying at a country inn for shelter were refused admittance, the landlady being suspicious of their character, and say ing that "she didn't want any such per sons." As enormous snakes and Aaron Burr's descendants are becoming scarce, coun try newspapers are searching their own offices for wonderful beings. Tho latest discovered is McDermott, aged 79, of the Jieporter, Washington, Pa., who set up Jeff. Davis' speech with only one error in proof. LONDON PEELERS. The London police force now number 9,761 men, of whom 20 are superintend ents, 262 insp ectors, 984 sergeants, and 8,489 constables. The population over whom these have authority exceeds 3,000,000. The length of streets pa "troled mgnVand day is 6,612 miles. The number of arrests in 1872 was 78,203. Arrests for drnnkenncss are rather in creasing, but crimes are diminishing. The number of thieves and suspected persons in 1869 was 4,336, and in 1872 it was 3,115. The number of houses of bad character has also lessened from 1,740 to 1,148 in the same period. SAB BEATII OF TWO SISTERS. The bodies of Mrs. Everett and Mrs. Constable (sisters), of London, who mysteriously disappeared in June last when they went to visit the horse show at tho Alexandra Park were found on Aug. 21 in the ruins of the Alexandra Palace. No clue has been discovered as to how the deceased found their way into the building. The general belief is that they wandered unnoticed into the ruins and were buried under some portion of the masonry which suddenly gave way. The bodies were much de composed. Their watches and chains were found on them. A HAIRY EDITOR. A. Banning Norton, of Dallas, Texas, who formed one of the party of Texas editors who recently made an exclusion to St. Louis and Chicago, has not had his hair or beard cut for twenty-nine years. In 1844, when Henry Clay ran for President, Norton made a vow that he would neither shave or have his hair cut until the idoh'zed Kentucky states man was Chief Magistrate of the nation. He has faithfully kept his vow to tliis day. BALTIMORE BRICK BUILDINGS. Mr. Boss Winans, the Baltimore mil lionaire, has just completed, in the southwestern part of that city, 113 brick dwelling-houses, four stories high, suitable for families in moderate cir cumstances, all of the houses being laid off and bmff alike, and possessing un usual accommodations for dwellings of their class. These houses cost at least $500,000 in all, and will accommodate about 1,300 people. KANSAS COAL. The coal-mining interests of Kansas are rapidly becoming important. Dur ing the mining season of '72 and '73, 400,000 tons of coal have been taken from the Carbondale mines. From 300 to 500 persons are employed, and the pay-roll is $5,000 to $6,000 a month. The London police report that in the metropolis (exclusive of the city), 118 persons were run over and killed in the streets in 1872 10 by cabs, 13 by omni buses, 1 by a tramway-car, 6 by car riages and broughams, 18 by light carts, 19 by wagons and drays, 30 by vans, 2 by horses ridden, and 19 by heavy carts.

Within the last few months a considerable number of persons have called upon Dr. Walker, the proprietor of the popular medicine known as Vinegeb Bitters, and as sured him that, in their belief, his pre paration is an infallible antidote for rum and tobacco. The minute details which have been furnished liim forbid him to doubt the accuracy of the state ments. This new claim of a great remedy to the confidence of the public will give a vast and well-deserved im pulse to its popularity. Heretofore the Bittebs have been recognized as a pure vegetable tonic and corrective, devoid of alcohol, and thoroughly adapted to the cure of stomach and bowel com plaints, nervous disorders, bilious affec tions, musclar diseases, and, indeed, a majority of the ailments within the reach of medicine ; but it will also cure the craving for liquor and tobacco, philosophers, statesmen and theologians ought to unite their voices in its praise. Can it be true ? It is easy to test the question. 9 A mosquito in the bush is worth two n the hand. Peerless Clothes Wringer.

Com. " Half Alive. It is a sad tiling to pass through life only half alive. Vet there aro thousands whose habitual condition is ono of lauguor and debility. They complain of no specific disease; they suffer no positive pain, but they have no relish for anything which affords mental or sensuous pleasure to their more robust and energetic fellow-beings. In nine cases out of ten this state of lasBitudc and torpor arises from a morbid stomach. Indi gestion destroys the energy of both mind and body. When the waste of nature is not supplied by a due and regular assimilation of the food, every organ is starved, every function inter rupted. Now, what docs common sense suggest under these circumstances of depression? The system needs rousing and strengthening; not merely for an hour or two, to kink afterwards into a more pitiable condition than ever (as it assurenly would do u an ordinary alcoholic stimulant were re sorted to), but radically and permanently. How is this desirable object to be accomplished? The answer to this question, founded on the un varying experience of a quarter of a century, is easily given. Infuse new vigor into the digestive organs by a course of Hostetter's Stomach Bitters. So not waste time in administering temporary remedies, but wake the system up by recuperat ing the fuuutain-head of physical strength aud energy, the great organ upon which all the other organs depend for their nurture and support. By the time that a dozen doses of the great vege table tonic and invigorant have been taken, the feeble frame of the dyspeptic will begin to fecLits benign influence. Appetite will be created, and with appetite the capacity to digest what it craves. Persevere until the cure is complete until healthful blood, lit to be the material of flesh and muscle, bone and nerve and brain, flows through the channels of circulation, instead of the watery pabulum with which they have heretofore been imperfectly nourished.

A St. Cath erines (Canada) paper informs us that, after walking across the rope, he re turned to the middle of it and jumped then into the river, 150 feet below. The jumping consists in letting himself down by a rubber rope, having good stretching capacity, until witliin some 8 or 10 feet of the water, into which he then quietly drops, to be picked up by a boat stationed for the purpose.

It is a first-rate family paper, full of entertaining and instructive read ing of every kind, but containing nothing that can offend the most delicate and scrupulous taste. It is a first-rate story paper. The best tales and romances of current literature are carefully selected and legibly printed in its pages. It is a first-rate agricultural paper. Tho moat fresh, and instructive articles on agricultural topics regularly appear in this department. It is an independent political paper, Belonging io no party, ana wearing no cot lar.
