CURING BACON WITHOUT SMOKE. "O,the trouble folks have taken,
To smoke and spoil their bacon."
To smoke the best bacon, fat your hogs early and fat them well. By fattening early you make a great saving in food, and well fattened pork. Then kill as early as the weather will allow, and salt as soon as the animal heat is gone, with a plenty of the purest salt, and about halt an ounce of saltpetre to one hundred pounds of pork.
As soon as the meat is salted to your taste, which will generally be in about five weeks, take it out, and if any of it has been covered with brine, let it drain a little. Then take black pepper, finely ground, and dust on the hock end as much as will stick, then hang it up in a good, clean, dry, airy place. If all this is done as it should be, (it ought to be done now,) you will have no further trouble with it, ior by fly time in spring, your bacon is so well cured on the outside, that flies or bugs will not disturb it.
Curing bacon is like the Irishman's mode of making punch. He said :-"put in the sugar, then fill it up with whiskey, and every drop of water you put in after that spoils the punch.' Just so with curing bacon, after following the directions given above, every "drop" of smoke you put about it spoils the bacon.-Portage Democrat.
MIXED DIET.—All the Grahamite philosophy in the world cannot contradict, by reason, the assertion, that a mixture of animal and vegetable food is best for man. To supply the daily loss of nitrogen, a healthy, laboring man, if living on bread alone, would require four and a half pounds-if on potatoes, eighteen pounds. This would overload the

I note them halting by the brink,
Or dancing o'er the ripples bright
On yonder woody bank I hear
A rustling 'mid the leaves;
I deem the heavy-treading kine
A solitary bee a-field
Allured by these bright hours,
When cold the winds have blown!
It is the Indian Summer time'

MADELEINE AND OSBAND PEARS. The first of these outlines, the Madeleine, is a pear hardly of the medium size, but one of the most refreshing and excellent of the early pears, and Downing says the best at the time of its ripening, which is before the Bloodgood. It takes its name from its being in perfection, in France at the feast of St. Madeleine. The tree is fruitful and vigorous, with long erect olive-colored branches.

I here allude to the Wild Rice, sometimes called the Canada Rice, Water Oats, Indian Rice, and Minnesota Rice. I will here quote the relation of but one of many northern travellers, to show the high expectations raised by the discovery of this plant. In speaking of the Wild Rice as seen by him one hundred years since, he says,"This grain, which grows in the greatest plenty throughout the interior parts of North America, is the most valuable of all the spontaneous productions of that country. In future periods it will be of great service to the infant colonies, as it will afford them a present support, until, in the course of cultivation, other supplies may be produced. We need not inform the reader of this article, that the high expectations, thus early raised in regard to the cultivation of the Wild Rice have not as yet been realized; although of late it has attracted some notice, and it is said, some successful attempts at cultivation have been made. It is found growing in the shallow lakes and streams of Michigan, Wisconsin, Iowa, Minnesota, and in the valley of the upper Mississippi and Missouri. It is gathered in large quantities by the Indians, principally by the females, when ripe, which is in September, in the following manner. They first prepare their canoe by cleaning it, and making it perfectly watertight, and then shove it into the field of rice, bending the stalks in handfuls over the side of the canoe, and beat out the rice with paddles." The Wild Rice is found in Massachusetts growing at the edges of our ponds and shallow streams. We have seen it in a brook running into Pleasant Pond in MADELEINE, Citron des Carmes.
