Keep all kinds of plants under glass as

Never tie up lettuces or endives, or

Keep your plants clean. Dust and
dirt on leaves make the plant unhealthy,
and will in time kill it.
, Never grow a plant too fast ; it is no
credit to you, because anybody can do it,
-and it spoils the crop to a certainty.
Never train or support a plant un

about. Trailers will not do climbing.
Conversing with a gentleman the other
day about oxen, ho made a remark which
may be of essential service to many who
' are not as well acquainted with the pecu
liarities of thoso valuable animals as they
would desire to be. Oxen" (said he),
"are frequently ruined for the summer s
work, or spoiled entirely by over-driving,
-during the first warm days of spring.
Until there is a full bite of grass, oxen
are not canble of rreat exertion in hot
r weather ; but after they are turned out
-'into good pasture, if they have not been
previously injured, they will perform in a
very satisfactory manner,- Tho great
danger is when we first begin our spring's
work. Then they should be handled with
.very great caution, even though they do a
very small day'a labor. Managing in
this way, my oxen, in the heat of sum
mer, will plow as much as horses."
How to Cook Eggs.
Dropped Eoos are probably the most
healthful form in which they can be pre
pared for the table. Break the egg very
carefully into a pan of scalding water, and
let the water come gradually to a buil, re
moving the eggs with a skimmer as soon
as the while is set. Serve on a hot plat
. 4er with a little salt, pepper and butter, or
lay the eggs on hoi buttered toast. For
invalids, use cream instead of butter.
Boiled Eoos. Drop them in the she)
into boiling water, and boil from two to
' three minutes, according as you witdi tlie
whites lightly or thoroughly done. A
fresh laid ep-jr requires a naif minute
more of boiling thou an old one. -Poached
Egos.- Bent the eggs to
froth, add salt, pepper and butter, turn
them into a buttered pan and cook slowly
over a few coals, or better yet, over boil-
ing water, Mirnnjr constantly ti'l delicate
Jy set, then serve on toast or vegetables
or 111 a tush by themselves.
. Baked Eggs. Butler an earthen
baking dish, break the ers in carefully,
sprinkle a little pepper and salt over, lay
on a few crumbs of butter, and bake
. slowly till the white is set.
. 'Fried Eggs are commonly cooked too
much. Tbey should not be turned, but
the hot fat should, be constantly poured
over them with a spoon till the white is
set, when they are ready to be served

lay a flat plate over the top, and turn your

It seems that housekeepers who wash
their silverware with soap and water, as
the common practice is, do not know what
v they are about. The proprietor of one
of the oldest silver establishments in the
city of Philadelphia, says that house
keepers ruin their silver by washing it in
soapsuds; it makes it look like pewter.
Never put a particle of soap about you
t-ilver, and it will retain its original lustre,
