FARM, HABDEX A>D HOUSEHOLD,
Harness Sores on Horses.
There r-e few things which cause
more d £* v and trouble in farm work
during these hot iuonths of summer,
than tile galls and sores that come upon
the shoulders -nud backs ot work horses.
A vast amount‘of h ar( i work must be
done, and' the anfmqls are strong and
wcll'enougil to .do it;, provided there
wore_ not these painful sdre^that prevent
- t theicapplying should'er themselves to tire labor.
A horse witli or back galls, or
. both, suffers pain when it is put into the
_ harness. Tj^e-direct of these
is the friction to which the parts are
subjected, combined with the excessive
. heat and great flow of ;sweat. Jnflam-
mationand chafing of thq skin are pro¬
muph .more-readily in hpt than
.: cold weather, because the conditions of
greater friction are then present. The
preventive is in reducing the friction to
the least possible amount. In the first
place, the harness must fit' closely and
smoothly to tfife form of the horse, that
the weight of the load maybe uniformly
distributed surface beneath tho
harness. Secondly, the horse should be
in a healthy g tatef that t.h<f muscles and
skin iffayle of bhdir normal toughness,
and tjh.q, sweating not unnaturally pro:
■■ fuse. This involves the proper care and
feeding of the horse. A poorly kept
animjal, become or one not'ip.gpod health, will
sort more readily than one in
good health. When the sores are al¬
ready formed, a speedy cure is the thing
needed. Sponge carefully the afflicted
parts, to remove all accumulations from
sweat. Then bathe with a lotion of
alum and tannin, with a little laudanum
added. All pressure upon the sore
should be removed by a proper adjust¬
ment;of-tfift harness, and, if necessary,
keep the horse from work until cured.—
Tie Horse-s Frog.
i we were to go to many a black¬
smith and. ask him if he did not think
Dature had made a mistake in putting
the clumsy frog into the horse’s foot, he
would hardly be ready to say yes,
and very likely would put on a sur-
prised look, and perhaps explain that in
some countries horses did very well
without shoes, and so the frog was left
to care for itself. But while not ready
to take ground with you in any criticism
of the plan upon which the foot is eon-
structed, you have but to look in the
corner of the shop where two horses
Btand newly shod; lift up their feet an-’
observe for yourself, that if the smith
lias not said it, the knife has said tho
frog is a bad thing, and must be cut
away. The horses do not stand on the
ground, but nearly half an inch higher,
on the iron of their shoes, and which
takes the weight of the horse on the
outer sMtell of the hoof. The practice is
as sensible as it would be for a man who
had to travel on all fours taking the
weight on the nails of his fingers and
toes rather than on the cushion which
lies behind them, ft is always the soft
part—the india rubber part of the feet
of animals that , have such—which re
ceives the weight, and not the shelly,
hard part. We know what an elo-
pbant’s foot is; it is all rubber-iike.
The horse has the same encased in a
shell, which gives Lim accuracy and
steadiness of movpmeut. Now,' this
casing proteptR, the frog. It grows
slowly, the’ ffgf grows rapidly. The
healthy foot of the colt shows a center,

The object in shoeing the animal,
aside from the occasional one of chang¬
ing its gait, is simply to prevent the
wear and shattering of the outer shell,
and to enable jt to take a-firmer hold of
the gremnd,. escaping the slipping of the
unshod fjogn. .It -is an unfortunate in¬

Hen. as Grub De.iroy.n.
Burham’s'new poultry book gives the
following; The French peasants have
a model mode of feasting their fowls
and at the same time of destroying the
common grubworm with which in some
districts their land is literally alive in
early spring, and of which pests the
farmer thus there rids himself. When
the plowing is being done a large coop
'or bpx is placed.Upon wheels and filled
with advanced chickens and fowls—
forty, fifty or a liundred'in each—and
this vehicle is taken to the -rnewly-
plowing field and follows the open
furrows. The fowls are let out of the
perambulating coops as soon as the
ground i3 turned over for a given space,
and they are quickly busy in gobbling
up the myriads of grubworms thrown
to the surface by the plow, gorging
themselves with these rare pickings, of
which they seem inordinately fond.
The coop is moved on as the birds ad¬
vance behind the plowmen, and the
fowls feed constantly all day long in
this way, devouring the grubs with in¬
tense gusto, and appearing never satis¬
fied so long as there is a stray worm in
sight. Thus the French peasant clears
his grounds previous to planting very
effectually from these destructive and
pestiferous devourers of the rootlings of
tender plants. These grubs breed in
countless numbers in the fields of Nor¬
mandy and Nivernais. At sunset the
fowls invariably enter the trundeled
coops, and are thus returned to their
home quarters, or are kept confined till
next day for a continuance of tins duty,
which appears to be rare enjoyment to

The interoceanic canal concession
which has been granted by Nicaragua
to the American Provisional society is
one of great value, conferring, as it
does, the exclusive privilege to con¬
struct a ship-canal across the territory
of Nicaragua. The canal is to be ol
sufficient' dimensions to accommodate
steamers of the largest class used be¬
tween Europe and America, and the
locks are to be not less than five hun¬
dred feet long and twenty-eight feet
deep. The concession is for ninety-nine
years from the date of the opening of
the canal for general traffic, and at the
expiration of that period the Nicara¬
guan government is to take possession of
the canal in perpetuity, with the right
reserved to the company to lease it for
another ninety-nine years. During the

ragua will declare the terminal ports
and the canal itself, throughout its
length, to be neutral, and that the
transit, in case of war between other
powers and Nicaragua, shall be unin¬

be open to free navigation of all vessels,
provided they pay the dues and observe

Some IntcTestma Facts about Prcsltleuti

To begin, then, the word president,
derived from the Latin, means to “ sit
before”—t. e., an audienoe. The free
translation of the term would be “chair¬
man.” And the office of a chairman
is to act as presiding officer or moder.
ator of an assemblage.
The President of the United States
holds his office for four years. He must
be a native of the United States, an d at
least thirty-five years of age.
He is not elected by the popular vote,
but by a College ol Electors chosen by
the people. Buchanan’s popular vote
was about 200,000 less than half the
total cast; Lincoln’s about 900,000 less
than half; and Hayes was 150,000 votes
behind the number east for Tilden.
From 1799 to 1824 the President was,
in most cases, chosen by the legislatures
of the States.

President was “His Highness the Presi¬

By the introduction of this new and
improved syst ;m of telegraphy it will
substitute, in a large degree, tho nee of
mechanism for manual laboT. By the
hand- 1 key process of telegraphing, now
employed in this country, the average
rate of speed by which intelligence is
transmitted over the wires is twenty-five
words per minute; the speed of this new
system between Boston and New York
(250 miles) for regular work is 1,000
words per minute. The magnitude of
this achievement may be better appreci¬
ated in view of the faot that, to obtain
this speed, electrical pulsations, making
a legible record in telegraphic characters
on paper at the receiving end of the
line, with every punctuation mark es¬
sential to the best composition, must be
transmitted at the rate of more than 500
per seoond. It is this increased capac¬
ity of a single wire, now for the first
secured without defeots, that solves the
problem of cheap telegraphy, and, it is
confidently; believed, will ultimately
bring npqn the wires everywhere tho
groat mass of the business correspond¬
ence Of the world.
Messages are first prepared by the
use of perforating machines, that is,
machines operated with a key-board and
made to puncture two lines of perfora¬
tions, conventionally grouped to repre¬
sent letters, in a narrow strip or ribbon
of paper. These instruments are far
superior to anything of tne kind ever
before produced, and cannot fail to rank
among the highest triumphs of meohan-
ical art. Any person can operate them
at sight, and after a few weeka’ practice
compose messages for the transmitter,
promptly and accurately, at the rate of
1,500 to 2,000 words (fifty messages) per
hour. Uader the operations of the trans¬
mitter the perforated paper is simply a
stencil, every puncture therein appear¬
ing as a dot or dash on the recording
paper at the other end of the line with
unfailing accuraoy. The agency of the
operator is limited to the exeroise of
turning a wheel, and is thus entirely
eliminated, with all its liability to error,
from the actual work of the telegraph.
The copying of messages for delivery to
the public requires about the same corpB
of operators-as their previous perfora¬
tions, and no more intelligence or skill
in the performance cf the Work. Any
person of ordinary ability can easily
master the alphabet in an hour’s time,
and can soon learn to read the tape upon
which it is recorded by the receiving
instrument with fluency and ease. Young
ladies translate the recorded characters
at the rate of 100 words per minute.
Thus, with a single wire, manned by
fifteen perforators, fifteen copyists and
two good operators at each end, can pre¬
pare, transmit ’ and deliver, with a de¬
gree of promptness and reliability, under
press of business, hitherto unattained
and unattainable, 1,200 messages per
hour. The economy of the work is ap¬
parent at a glance. A uniform tariff is
proposed for alf stations witliiu suoh
limits asf* d practicable under
ordinary ot>u-itions for direot working.
There appears to be less reason for dis¬
crimination in rates as to distance by
telegraph than there would be in the
postage of letters. It may be added, in
prospectu, that a umrorm tariff will lead
eventually, when the lines are sufficient¬
ly extended for the purpose, to the gen¬
eral prepayment of messages by the use
of stamps. Another novel is the classi¬
fication of messages as express and pos¬
tal. Express messages will always take
precedence over all others in right of
way, and, owing to the enormous capac¬
ity of the wires under this system, they
oan scarcely be delayed an instant by
the now common procedure of “taking

Business Man’s Perf®rator.
This's a remarkably ingenious ma¬
chine, intended for private use by any
telegraphers. Operated with a lever,
it is more, simple in construction
than the keyed instrument. With it
every man may become his own tele¬
grapher. By perforating his messages
for transmission and translating directly
from the tape those he receives (work
which any correspondence clerk can
easily perform), he will oonfine the tele¬
graph to its proper and inexpensrve
function of ‘ ‘common carrier, "and secure
a liberal rebate from the regular tariff.
It is intonded to charge for such mes¬
sages by the yard, without counting the
words, and thus reduce the cost of tele¬
graphing as well as the time of Ir ina-
Perhaps, however, the most attractive
and valuable feature of this branch of
the business is tho facility it affords for
secret telegraphing. . By a simple rear¬
rangement of the machine for the pur¬
pose, the telegraphic characters may be
converted into any one of many mill ions
of private alphabets, which no person,
not excepting, ol coarse, tho employees,
can decipher interchanged without tho key, and which
may be between corre¬
spondents confidential using similar maohlnes in the
most manner possible.

In One Lifetime^
Some one has recently written: I am
not an old man; yet in material things
I have seen the creation of a new world.
I am contemporary with the railroad,the
telegraph, tiie the steamship, the photo¬
graph, plow, sewing-machine, the steam-
the friction match, gaslight,
chloroform, nitro-glycerine, the moni¬
tor, the caloric engine, the California
gold discoveries, gutta percha, the canned oil-well fruits, discover¬
electric light, the telephone, etc. These
are some of the footprints of material
progress of the present generation. Do
you think the moral world will remain
the same as before? That society will
remain unafl'ecti il by these changes ? If
you do, let me call your attention to the
fact that the same generation has seen
the abolition of slavery on a large scale,
the ascendency of republicanism in
America, the opening of China and
Japan, the inslilu ion of world’s fairs.

This preparation is scientifically and chemically
combined,and so strongly concentiated from roots,
herbs and barks, that its good f fleets are realized
immediately after ccmmincing to take it. Th ere
is no disease of the human system for which the
ViGETiNE cannotb© used 'with pebpeot safety, as
it does not contain any metallic compound. For
eradicating the system of all impurities of the
blood it has no equal. It has never failed to effect
a cure, giving tone and strength to the system de¬
bilitated by disease. Its wonderful effects upon
the com plaipts named are surprising to all. Many
have been cured by the Vegetine that have tried
many other remedies. It can well be called
THE GREAT BLOOD PURIFIER.
Remarkable Cure of Scrofulous Face.

Dear Bir—I can testify to the good effect of your
Medicine. My little boy bad a Scrofula sore break

and it went down his face lrem one ear to the
other, under his neck, and was one solid mass of
tores. Two bottles of your valuable Vegetine
completely cured Very him. respectfully,
