FARM AND ORCHARD.
It Pays to Keep Good Fowls and
Care for Them.
Fruit-Growing as a Huslness—Hints to
Milkers—Soro Mouths in Pigs—How
to Treat Cows to Make Them Gentle
—General Furm Notes.
The fact that poultry is ono of the most
profitable adjuncts of the farm, and that
the raising of the same is growing in in
terest, cannot be denied, and only a short
time will elapse before it will receive the
attention that justice demands.
It may be one of the smallest income
items of the farm in some localities, yet it
should not be overlooked. When we con
sider that for years it was looked upon as
the work of the women folks, we wonder
how the change came about to work its
way into being considered a part of the
regular work of the men folks. The only
way we can account for this is, that when
the women take up any branch of indus
try and carry it to success, the men arc
then ready to take hold and continue the
same. That it pays to keep good fowls
and care for them in a proper manner,
there is no longer any doubt. It would
not do for every farmer to become a
fancier and raise high-scoring birds, yet
all can raise high grades, and by so doing
swell the items of eggs and fowls sold.
It certainly is not, as once considered, a
small business, beneath the dignity ofthe
farmer, but a noble and elevating calling.
If we are rightly constituted and possess
the desire to see around us well behaved
and beautiful plumaged birds, if we havo
a love for the comforts and enjoyments of
our farm yard fowls, wo are cultivating a
refinement and respect for the animals,
and also for the children who live upon
the broad acres and who are demanding
our love and respect.
Tho basket of eggs and the dozen of
young and old fowls sent to market dur
ing the year form quite an item in the
keeping down of the inevitable and
11 ever-to-be-accountcd-for grocer's bill.
When we learn of the great number of
egg consumers in the United States and
oft lie really few egg producers, of the
millions -of dollars sent to foreign coun
tries to pay for imported eggs; when We
read Secretary Rusk's report which says:
"The time has come when the impor
tance of the poultry interest should be
recognized in this department. The
poultry products ofthe Lnited States had
a farm value of at least $200,000,000 last
year, anel no less than 16,000,000 dozen
eggs were imported at a first cost of over
lo cents per dozen, or nearly $2,500,000,
while the average annual value of such
importation during the past four years
has been 82,21(i,320. Such facts emphasize
the necessity for encouraging tbo increase
for domestic fowls of all kinds and they
further indicate beyond question that
this industry is important enough to de
mand the special consideration of this
department." When we read such state
ments as this, we repeat, they plainly tell
us that an opening is at hand for somo
ojie to step iv and occupy, and why
should you not fill the field as well as
others? We should never be afraid to
enter so good an opening, and we on the
farm should bo afraid of no competition,
for who can produce as cheaply as the
farmer? The scraps from the table, cheap
and wasting grain, grasses and insects, all
combine to make tho cheapest and best of
Of course, disease will sometimes come
nnd disaster will follow; our calculations
will be scattered to the winds just as we
are about to realize largely; yet wo must
00 on the lookout, the health of our flock
must be well looked after. There is noth
ing accomplished without labor, and labor
conquers all things, aro established say
ings trite and true.
If there is anything that gladdens the
visitor's heart, and especially if that visit
or is a minister, it is a plate of tender fried
chicken set before him at breakfast. Tho
reputation of many a housewife is either
made or lost just in proportion as this
dish is gotten up, and while so much is
dependent upon this, we should aim to
produce as many of these reputation
making creatures as wo possibly can, so
as to supply those who cannot raise them
with the one great article, that tho city
peoplo may better serve those who visit
If yon raise hundreds of fowls each
year, yon will scarcely miss their raising,
and many comforts you will be able to
add to your perhaps limited stock of
household necessities, with the income
they will bring.
It pays to raise fowls for more reasons
than one, yet the greatest, perhaps, is that
of dollars and cents that will surely be
received in return; and when wo say it
pays wo mean it, and hundreds of farm
ers' wives throughout the nation will
testify to the truth of our statement. —
John C. Snyder in the Prairie Earmer.
FRVIT-GROWIXQ AS A BUSINESS.
There is more "business" in the grow
ing of fruit than receives attention. The
cultivation of the orchard and the harvest
ing of the crop are more methodical than
systematic, and the value of the orchard,
and nlso of the successive crops, is less
ened because the real business ail'airs
connected with fruit-growing are neg
lected. What is meant by business
methods does not apply to the simple
routine matters, but to the production of
the largest possible crops and selling the
same to advantage. There are hundreds
of splendid apple orchards in this State
from which a dollar has never been de
rived, the owners being content with the
cider therefrom, leaving the bulk ofthe
crop to be eaten by pigs and sheep, which
results from failing to recognize the or
chard as something from which to derive
a revenue, thereby neglecting it, and re
ceiving therefore only inferior fruit.
Many farmers endeavor to secure two
crops from an orchard —fruit and grass—
the result being that the grass robs the
trees, whilo the trees in turn, shade tlio
grass and draw upon the land for their
Some fruit trees, such as the peach, will
perish in a single year if grass covers the
ground ofthe orchard, and, though such
is not the case with apples and pears, yet
the lesson from the condition of tho peach
tree under such conditions terfehes that)
crass is at least a drawback. It may not
toe proper to force the young trees 100
rapidly at first, and it is true that an occa
sional grass crop plowed- in has given
beneficial results, but to keep an orchard
as 11 pasture is to occupy the ground with
unprofitable fruit trees. An orchard
should be kept neatly trimmed, well
fertilized or manured and cultivated
thoroughly at least once a year.
Experienced fruit-growers not only
cultivate and manure tho orchard, but
pick off ail inferior fruit, aud some of
them are careful not to allow the trees to
overbear. They aim to secure fruit of
good quality rather than large yields, and
they look ahead for the markets and
watch the quotations. In preparing fruit
they assort it, grading it in order to have
it uniform,ana send it neatly packed, in
nn attractive manner, in order to sell to
the best advantage. If farmers who have
orchards would pursue these business
methods and treat their orchards like
they do grain crops, by giving earefol
attention, they will find fruit-growing
more profitable than they suppose.—
SOKE MOUTH IX PIOS.
Young pigs will often light for life try
ing to get the best position for taking
milk from the sow. They will bite each
other's months and tongues, using the
ur.per and lower incisors to good ad van
Investigation will show edges of the
tongue fringed and bitten before the pigs
are a day old, and if left to themselves
their mouths will become sore, some of
lliein to such an extent that they will not
suck, and thus grow weak, and do not
thrive like some stronger ones. In some
cases I have seen their mouths so sore
fchat they became decayed and black, large
Mecca dropping off each side of their
mouth. To prevent this I basket the
entire litter from two to twelve hours
after being farrowed.
Take them to a warm apartment away
from the dam, hold each pig between the
knees, with a man or boy to help, who
holds a small stick in the pig's mouth.
Then snap otF the four incisors, take the
litter back to the sow, and I nover have
had any more trouble, nor havo I over
had a pig bothered with sore mouth.—
HINTS TO MILKERS.
Always treat cows gently. Keep your
finger nails cut short, and wash your
hands thoroughly in warm water. A
cow's teats are very sensitive, and the
animal's restiveness is often owing to the
fact that she dreads rough ways and
Clean your cow-shed thoroughly be
fore you milk. Hardly any substance is
so easily contaminated by foul odors as
Have your utensils as clean as your
hands. If of tin, set them out in" the
sunlight. If you have long tin cans,
hang them up so that the open end is
near the earth. There is no better de
odorizer than the soil.
Never feed your cows when you are
milking. Ono thing at a time.
Clean the cow's udder well before you
attempt to milk. Do it with a dry cloth
or brush. Avoid water for this purpose,
but, if necessary, let the water bo warm,
and then dry the udder perfectly.
Give a little salt in their feed; it will
keep the bowels regular, while if you
give a small quantity once a week it is
apt to act like a physic— Montana Stock
It is poor polico to keep pigs of all ages
and sizes together.
"Poor roads, small loads, exhauasled
horses, lost time, wretched wagons.
Good road, big loads, happy horses, time
to spare, solid wagons." Of all men,
farmers cannot afford to havo poor roads.
Peas can bo put in somewhat early, as
they arc hardy. They endure a little'frost
and grow better when the spring is not
too warm. Prepare a plot for successive
sowings, as the dwarf kind sdldoni allow
of more than two pickings.
The fanner takes not only cost but his
living out of his receipts before lie begins
to count tho profit. The merchant counts
as profit the difference between tho buy
ing and selling price, less the cost of the
transaction, and then lives on his profit.
T. 15. Terry says: "I believe that at the
present day, in the vicinity of good mar
kets at least, a suro plan for keeping
poor and hard up on a small farm is to
try to raise a little of everything that
will grow in tho latitude where one
Cheeses of the size of seventy or eighty
pounds are now being made, the size be
ing tbe same that was preferred twenty
years ago, and which is believed to be
about correct for economy of shipping
and for lessening the loss in rind, as well
as loss from other sources.
Some say it is not necessary to ventilate
a cellar in which bees are kept, as the
upward ventilation of the hive will be
sufficient. Dr. C. C. Miller wants to
know "how much upward ventilation
will make the air pure in a cellar filled
with rotten cabbage?"
Dr. Hoskins says that if paris green
were soluble in water it would kill the
leaves upon which it was sprinkled. It
is, however, soluble in the bodies of in-'
sects. London purple is slightly soluble
in water, and is hence always more or
less harmful to foliage.
A calf can be prevented from having
horns by an application of crude potash
to the spot where the incipient horn can
be felt—so Waldo F. Brown says. Tlio
cost is next to nothing. The plan of de
horning is gaining in favor, and dono in
this way has much to commend it.
Dig around the peach trees and exam
ine the base of the trunks and the main
roots for the worms and maggots that do
damage at this season. The best remedy
is to pour boiling water around the tree,
which kills the insect but does not harm
the tree. The boiling water will also
flow in on the borer and destroy it.
One of the advantages in keeping a few
pigs to produce pork for family use is
that the pigs can be fed to produce meat
of an excellent quality. One cannot
easily buy meat of as good quality as lie
can produce it, and this fact should bo
considered as important as the cost.
Quality as well as quantity is worth some
Never cut a fowl's wings by clipping off
the quills, as it makes them look un
sightly. The best way to cut their wings
to prevent flying is to spread the wing
out and cut the feather portion from the
quill. This will leave bare quills, and
when the wing is closed it rarely shows
that the wing has been tampered with.
Only one wing should bo cut.
The average egg weighs about two
ounces. The fresh egg is composed of 10
per cent, shell, CO per cent. white and 30
per cent. yelk. The white contains So'
per cent. and the yelk 52 per cent, of
water. The whole, as to its solid con
stituents, is nearly pure albumen. The
yelk contains the constituents of flesh,
bone, nerve, sinew, etc. — Wyandotte
Professor W. A. Henry says, "I should
think ten pounds of hay sufficient for a
horse liberally fed on grain. As a rule
horses consume much more hay than is
best for them or profitable to the owner.
The practice of rilling a hay chute or deep
manager with a large amount of hay and
allowing the animal to eat at will should
be avoided. With a little experience as
certain tho real needs of the animal, and
keep him to that."
Dwarf trees that have been maintained
under proper cultivation and that have
been properly pruned, may be seen pro
ducing excellent crops of line fruit after
half a century of existence, says George
Ellwanger, in Popular Gardening. Most
of the dwarf pear orchards throughout
Western Xew York aro neglected in
most, if not in all, the above require
ments, and, therefore, their lease of life
is short and unsatisfactory.
Many persons make the mistake of
planting carrots, parsnips and beets tod
late. They are crops that should go in
as early as the season will permit, as they
should have as long a growing period as
possible. Another advantage of early
planting is that they have a chance to
grow before weeds and grass. The seeds
aro slow to germninate, and much time is
often lost by grass covering the ground
before the seeds of the root crop come
through. Make the soil very fine.
Pure charcoal, or charred wood from
the stove, when fresh, is an excellent aid
in arresting bowel complaints, and is both
simple and harmless. Where the hens
havo not had a variety, parched grain,
nearly burnt, affords an agreeable change,
and serves nearly the same purpose as
charcoal. Oats, corn, wheat, or even
bran, will be readily eaten by hens when
they have been regularly fed on a same
ness of diet, and such iood will greatly
aid in arresting diarrhoea or other bowel
Some recent statistics show that very
rai.id increase is being made in vine
ealturc in this country. There are now
under vine-culture iv America 400,000
acres, of which about 300,000 acres are
bearing. The estimated value ofthe vine
yards and wine cellars is $155,000,000. In
California there are 150,000 acres under
vine-culture, and a large proportion of
the grapes produced are made into wine.
Most of the grapes grown in Xew York
State are sold for food. The total pro
duction of wine in the United States dur
ing the past year is about 40,000.000 gal
It pays to pet cows; they not only do
nun-h better, but you are surprised to
find so much about them that seems
human, says a writer in the Tribune. My
father and mother made much of their
cows and wero loved by them accord
ingly. I have a seen a cow lay her nose
on father's shoulder to have* her neck
scratched, but she loved mother better.
She appreciated her gentleness, and while
she shook her horns if any children came
about, her eyes would glisten with de
light at the approach of mother, and she
was the only person to whom she would
give down her milk. Father resorted in
vain to every artifice he could think of; she
would stand as stolid as a statue and keep
her milk to herself until mother came,
when it would flow in great quantity.
