PAIN-KI LLER [as been before the public over thirty years, and •robably has a wider and better reputation than any ther proprietary modicine of the present day. At his period there are but lew unacquainted with tho aerits of the Pain-Killer; but, whill some exto t as a liniment, they knew but little of its power in asing pain when taken internally; while others use t in tern all j with great success, but are equally gnorant of its healing virtues when applied external y. We therefore wish to say to all, that it is equally, iucccssful, whether used internally or externally, t is sufficient evidence of its virtues as a standard xned eine to know ihat it is now used in all parts of tho rorld, and that its sale 13 constantly increasing. No urativo agent has had such a wido spread .‘•ale or lven such universal satisfaction. Davis* Pain-Killer is a purely vegetable com ound, prepared from tho best and purest materials nd with a care that insures the most perfect uniform y in the medicine; and whilo it is a most effective imedy for pain, it is a perfectly safe medicine, oven i tho most unskilful hands. It is eminently a Family Medii ine; and by being ept ready for immediate resort, wil pave many an our of suffering, and many a dollar in time and doc >r’s bills. After over thirty years trial, it is still receiving the tost unqualified testimonials to its virtues, from ersons of the highest character and responsibility !

The company arc yet to be heard from. It is related of a Cambridge don, a mathe mat.eiau of repute for solid attainments, that sojourning in London during vacation, he had ergaged one day to dine with a friend whose address was given to him—in a certain square. The professor did not appear, and the next altemoon his friend called at his lodgings to ask what had happened to keep him away. “Why,” said the mathemati cian, “I did come; but there was some mis take. You told me you lived in a square, and I found myself in a parallelogram; so I went away again.” Mrs. Gladstone, wife of the English pre mier, is an estimable churchwoman, bat sad ly lacks the social tact necessary to a person in her position.

The Georgetown Times is making a great uss, says the Taris Kentuckian, over a fellow vho sucked seventy-two eggs, one aftor mother, and drank a glass of brandy and hewed up the glass, as if that was any great eat.

Georgetown Times be hanged! Farming withont Barn-Yard Manure. Cannot farming upon gravelly loam up' auds, which arc rather dry for most kinds o( jrass, bnt good for wheat, corn, potatoes, oats, hcp3, tobacco, Ac., be carried on, by the use of a good rotation of crops, and clover, lime, ashes, phosphates, piaster, Ac., as fertilizers, so as to maintain the fertili y of the soil, and be more pio/itable than when Btock is kept, and barn-yard manure forms the principal fertilizer? I have no doubt that stock farming is best upon clay or moist soils suited to most kinds ot grass, but upon jphnds I am inclined to doubt it. How is t? A Subscriber. [That with suitable oil, land may bo kept In a high 9tat« of fer ilit.y by plowing under clover, has been leen proved by George Geddes, who has a leld that has never received: manure that he i aware of, and yet gives heavy crops. There nay be soils, however, where the use of barn nanure, in addition to the clover, would be mportanU Plowing in clover has the ad antages of obviating cutting the hay, drying t and drawing in, and again drawing out nd spreading. It has the disadvantage of onverting a large share of its constituent iarts directly into manure, which, if fed to nimals, would bring a much higher price n flesh, butter and cheese, and the refuse rould be the manure. Joseph Harris, who horoughly understands the subject, says that i crop ot clover equal to two tons of bay, vlien plowed under, will furnish more am nonia than twenty tons of straw-made ma ture. But if the clover is made into hay md fed to animals, and none of the manure vasted, the animal will take only about five ter cent of the ultrogen, and less of mineral onstitnents, leaving all the rest In the ma lure. The rotation adopted by Mr. Geddes ras usually the following: Corn on sod the irst year; barley and oats about equally dl ided the second year: wheat, seeded with lover, the third year; msadow the fourth, nd pasture the fifth. If It should be found oost profitable to raise more wheat than om, the wheat may come twice, in tbe ro ation by sowing on clover sod, instead of lanting com. Clover immediately after lover has generally failed.)
