To Make an Old Fowl Tender.
An old lady whose experience makes
her advice reliable says: A wine glass
full of strong white wine vinegar
forced down the throat of an old fowl
just before killing will make the meat
nice and tender. Those who have old
fowls to kill should try this simple receipt.

To Prepare Caijrage. A nice
way to prepare cabbage for imme-
diate use is to cut enough into fine
shreds to fill a quart dish; pepper and
salt to taste. Sprinkle over it a tea-
spoonful of sugar. Into two-thirds of

butter and let it boil; then pour over

she has planted cultivated harvested
and sold 350 bushels of wheat. It is
needless to say that a number of young
fellows are wildly in love with that
girl and that tho list of suitors will
rapidly increase as the record of her
achievment makes the rounds of the
press. A great deal is said about
women who marry merely for the
sake of being supported but they are
no mc.e numerous than men who
long for wives who will do work
enough to supply their husbands with
bread and butter cigars and drinks.
There are men in New York who
would borrow their last friend's
last dollar rather than do a day's work
in a wheat field yet would endow the
Indiana girl with half their worldly
debts and do it with the best plain
gold ring that could be bought on cred-
it. They would also as soon as the
wheat crop was harvested find busi-
ness calling them to New York and
keeping them here as long as the
money lasted or an advance could be
secured on the next crop.
Vessels for the Chinese Navy.
A firm of English shin-builders is
the son of a purser in the navy who
possessed rare accomplishments. When-
over Mr. Webster visited his estates in
New Hampshire or in Massachusetts
he was always accompanied by one of
these gentlemen who had tho charge of
Profit in Dairyin

If we could reach the 40000000 of
people of Mexico Central and South
America and could supply even half
of them with even one-link pound of
butter per week a market would be
opened for us which would consume
520000000 pounds of that product in
a year. I cannot see any reason why
in the near future we should not fur-
nish England with at least 300000000
of cheese per annum and with a large
proportion of the $50000000 worth of
butter that she imports from the con-
tinents of Europe. Exclusive of Great
Britian the population of Europe is
250000000. We ought to be able to
sell 'the same amount of cheese per
canita that is consumed in America.

cruisers and tha title though some
what ambitious may yet bo justified.
The vessels are provided with rams
which like the hull are of steel and
the coal carrying capacity is equal to
four days at full speed or twenty-
eight days at half speed. They are
unarmored and the displacement is
only 1430 tons while the speed is ful-
ly sixteen knots per hour. Propulsion
is given by twin screws and the
engines work up to 2400 indicated
horse-power. Instead of carrying
only one gun as in the previous ves-
sels these new ships carry two 2G-ton
10-inch breech-loaders of the new type.
Each of these big guns is lodged in a
species of turret or circular splinter
proof screen one at the bow and the
other at the stern conferring the advan-
tage of an all-round fire. These guns
take a charge of 190 pounds of pow-
der and fire a projectile of 400 pounds
with a velocity of 2000 feet per second
the penetrating power being equal to
twenty inches of iron. A vessel of the
same design is being built by the firm
fo tlother foreign government and
has lately been tried at sea the guns

age to the vessel or the machinery.
A speed of sixteen knots per hour was
maintained during a run of forty
knots. These vessels will be shortly
taken out to China by Chinese crews
under the command of Admiral Ting
who distinguished himself as a gener-
al in the war against Taepingsand was
afterwards made an admiral. The
production of vessels capable of carry-
ing so powerful an armament.aud trav-
eling at so high a speedwith so great a
coal capacity and yet having so limited
dimensions is a result says the Lon-
don Times which cannot fail to attract
Reminiscences of Webster.

demand for 1250000 pounds of cheese
which added to the not only possible
but probable exports to England makes
1420000000 pounds or four times
more than our present annual' produc-
tion. Then if we induce our own peo-
ple by giving them a better article at
a lower price to double their fivo pound
consumption there will be an annual
demand here for 200000000 per an-
num. The exports for butter for 1879
were 23000000 pounds. The exports
for 1880 were about 28000000 pounds
an increase of about 35 per cent. In
the meantime oleomargarine has been
exported to the extent of about 25000-
000 pouuds in addition to oleo oil
which is also mani ulated on the other
side to compete with our butter
showing that (5ur exports of butter
have been insignificant while oleomar-
garine took the place that butter
should have in the exports that is
instead of exporting 28000000
pounds last year without oleomargar-
ine we should have exported from 50-
000000 to 60000000 pounds. It is
lamentable the comparatively small
foreign business we have in this impor-
tant article. Our exports of cheese
tor a quarter or a century nave grown
to 135000000 pounds per annum and
vet butter has made but little head
way. Within five years the magnifi-
cent steamships sailing from New
York have put in patent refrigerators
so that butter can be shipped from
Chicago and landed in Liverpool and
London in just as good a condition as
it is recieved in New York. The qual-
ity of our butter has improved it is

Willett and ethers 25 per cent. by the
inlluence alone of the international
dairy fairs held in New York city and
yet we have other countries to supply

market to which I have already refer-
red. England imports annually $50-

than the United States leaving our
supply about 10 per cent. She imports
$22000000 worth of cheese of which
we supply about $15000000 or nearly
73 per cent. We find that dairying is
not only the principal agricultural in-
dustry 6f tho state of New York but
it equals in value nearly all other farm
products combined. When it is known
that the state produced in 1875 20000-

of wheat 28000000 bushels of oats
