BYE FOB GREEK 2HAHUBE.
Clover is unquestionably tho teat of all croj-s
to plow for green manure, and its Tain lias
bfeu ami'ly tested by many thousand farmers.
It has been an additional value in the mechani
cal operation of its roots, especially in heavy
soil, which they penetrate and loosen. The
draw back, is the time required to obtain a atrong
growth of the crop, never letw than a part of two
years. We bae used a substitute in rje in cer
tain cases, to mnch advantage, and without in
trrferiug with the regular succession of other
crops. It may be employed saccesitfolly by sow
ing, after the removal of a crop of fodder corn,
or of corn planted for the grain; tbe fodder be
ing hauled off and properly scenred. and
the common crop or corn removed by the appli
ances figured and deNcri.M-d on page HO of the
ninth volume of Rural JJfain, or by any other
mode adopted fr its removal. Or the rjc may
be sown between th rows of shocks when the
crop remains, the vacant strip being no serious
detriment. The corn having been well cultiva
ted as often as once a week until an high as 'the
horse, back, the surface is left clean and mellow
when the corn is cut. and we have riven it ra-
E id and additional mellowing with the Acme
arrow, plowing being uunerMary. As thin
burrow will thoroughly pulverize the surface of
several acres in a day. nearly the whole expense
of putting in the crop consists in the thrro buh
cls per acre of grain for seed. A smaller quanti
ty will answer, but three bimhels r even more'
will be found more profitable by affording a den
ser and heavier growth, l.ycisof such a har
dy character that It may be Minn at any time
during autumn to the middle of JCotcinlnTat the
Xorth. the earlier Kiwing bring earlicat tit for
plowing nnder in tbe spring.
As thickly-sown mm fodder dors not eilian-t
the soil like a crop for grain, there is little or no
objection to following a f.Mldur crop by another
one the next year, and the rye may be plowed
under, after tho heads are formed in aiume time
to sow another fodder crop almut the tirst f
June, r or a i-mi tier crop we hare cut tbe tirst
growth with a mowing machine, and made it iu
to excellent hay. or tcrd it green to animals- A
second crop immediately springs up, nearly as
heavy as the first, and this is plowed under as a
fertilizer, and the fodder crop miwii I m. fore July.
If a common corn crop, or one for fodder, in to
follow wheat, barley or oats, there will be ample
time to manure the laud, break the manure up
with the barrow, and to turn it nudcr with a
gang plow, Acme harrow or couiiuoa plow, for
an earlv crop of rye.
It will be observed that by either of those
courses, the rye makes its growth hetweea the
regular crops of the two ewcesive years, aud an
imortant gain is thus seenrcd. The seed, when
properly put in, never fails to grow, gi.iug it
another advantage oer chtver, which is Irs cer
tain to succeed e.ery time. On the other hand,
clover pOruesnc the great advantage in its ieue
tratiug and pulverizing roots, aud its stems and
leaves rot down and decay noonrr than ll.oe of
rye. It will be seen, on rum paring the aualysea
of the crops, that rioter lias but a slight advan
tage in its enriching ingredients over rye, a fact
at which some agricultural chemists hae ex
pressed snrpriHC. Hut if less than half the en
riching value of clover, the eaM with which a
heavy rye crop is obtained, aud the little inter
ference its grow th oeciVioin w ith the regular or
der of rotation, render it wtll worthy of a thor
ough trial by fanners. Xow is the time to make
preparations for it, and it may precede any crop
next spring w hich may be put in at the North as
late as the Oth of May or 1st of Juue, or later
as common corn, corn for fodder, Hungarian
grass, turnips or rata baga. or any of tho later
soiling crops. Country Geutlona.

A correspondent of the -V. E. Farmer cives
some useful hints iu regard to sating seed for
"In the first place, only the Itest specimens of
each kind should lie saved, and all inferior ones
should bo rejected; this is cay enough with such
plants as squashes, tomatoes, melons, etc., etc.,
care being used to a e itily the. earlisst, fairest
and inoHt perfect specimeus. Tbe seed should be
allowed to ripen thoroughly Ufore taking it
from tbe fruit, which will reqnire some weeks
with squashes, after gathering from the line.
Tomatoes are placed in the suu for a few das,
aud melou seeds may be takeu directly when tho
melon is fit to eat; seeds of this uatnre ba ing a
llesby pulp arc usually cleaned by washing them
in water, after which the ecd are spread oil a
sheet iu the sunshine to drv.
"The seeds of the Miiatib and all vines easily
mix with others of tbe sauio faunly iu the neigh
borhood, so that w hen a ariety is to lie kept
pure and true to name, it must lie planted quite
remote from any others of tbe samu family. The
mixingisdunebv the bees, whichcarry the pollen
from Mower to tlower, often a quarter of a mile.
It is quite difficult to grow good squash seed near
a pumpkin field, for this ream, and not moro
than one kind of melon or cucumber can be
grown in the same field, and have tho seed pure.
Tomatoes, corn and beans, mix less readily, bnt
should be kept separate by some roils while
growing, wnen pnre sccti is requireit. Yt lien sa
ving seeds of beets, cabbage, turnip, etc, thosa
who are most particular reject all hut tho seed

We are fmdingout, in these drouthy days, that
tbe Bible promise that seed-time aud harvest
shall not fail must, after all, dejiend largely on
the farmer himself. If be does his dnty the
promise holds giod, otherwiso not- There has
never yet been a good year when wheat ground,
plowed early and well cultivated, would not fur
nish a good seed-lieil by the tenth of September.
With a stubble ground plowed late, there is
more difficulty. Much depends on harrowing or
rolling immediately after ploning. In a large
field it is lietter to hitch on a roller or pulverize
each day, after the plowing is done. Ihe laud

will be all tbe worse if there is A lieitrv jlrv
stubble to turn uuder. If ios.silile, stubble laud
intended for wheat should bo burned oer lie-
fore plowing. It makes tho grouud look bare,
and tbe ashes from stubbU are too small iu
amount to be of much value as a fertilizer. They
w ill, however, to some extent, aluwrb moisture
from tbe atmosphere, and make the seed-lied
moister. Indirectlv tho advantage is irrenter.
The stuble to be turned under is of less value as a
manure tuau its ash, aud it keeps the soil much
drier than it otherwiso wsnld be. Dry straw
rots very slowly at best, and in a dry season of
ten does more harm thau good. Hotting is only
a slower combustion, and we have at last to get
its carbon mostly burned out of it before it tan
be used as plant fisM. Tho practice of burning
oyer wheat fields after harvest aud re-sowing
with wheat is faulty only iu this: too much
phosphoric acid is taken from the soil with no
return. When wheat yields diminish, it is not
carbon that the soil lacks, but the phosphates
and nitrogen. Farm, Herd and Home.

Sowing Onion Seed in the Fall.
Onions are largely sown in September, and the
practice is, on several accounts, to lie prelerretl
to spring sowing. There is more time iu fall
than in spring to get a bed in good condition for
luesecus, ami astney start mncn earner tnan
from spnug-sown seeds, there is, consequently,
much less labor required to keep them free from
weeds, which it is absolutely necessary to do in
order to perfect a crop. The time of sowing is
not so important as with cabbage, though if
sown too eariy tney are less likely to iiottom
well, while, on the other hand, if the sowing be
deferred nntil too late, they are less likely to
stand tbe wiuter without injury. In central
Pennsylvania, from the 10th to the 20th of Sep
tember is about the proper time. Farther south
they should, of course, b. sown correspondiugly
later, about six weeks of growing weather lic
ing required to get them in proper shape for
winter. On the approach of cold weatbera light
covering of straw, forest leaves or salt hay
shonld be given, as the young plants, not lieing
entirely hardy, will not stand our rigorous wiu-
ters without some protection. In the Southern
States, fall sowing is carried on more cxtensite-
ly than spring sowing, for the reason that the
crop thus having an earlier start, is more likrlr
to lie perfected before the severe drontbs of sum
mer, anil even in this lattltnde someof tb finest
onions ne ever saw, were from fall-sown seeds.
The ground requires the samo xireparation as for
spring sowing, and shonld the weather not be
very moist at the timeof sowing, it will lie ne
cessary to roll it well, in order to secure the per
fect germination of the seeds. Tie Seed-Time and

To Meascre High Objects. Persons are
sometimes desirons to find the exact heicht of an
object which they cannot climb or measure by
any direct process, as of a tree or building or
steeple. This can be readily done by measuring
some lower object and its shadow, and then
makiug a comparison or calculation. J-,ven a
child can do it. Take a pola of any given height;
place it iu an absolutely perpendicular position:
measure on the level ground tbe length of the
shadowy measnre tbe length of the shadow of the
tree; then tnnltiply the length of ths tree's sha
dow by tbe height of the tiole, and ditide the
Product by the length of the shadow of Ahe pole,
or instance, if tho polo is six feet high, its sha
dow ten, aud the shadow of the tree fifty,
the hbight of the tree will be thirty fee't.
Pcre Water. In an address delivered before
the Kentucky State Medical Society, it was sta
ted that epidemics of typhoid fever which twen
ty ears ago were very prevalent in that State,
now rarely ocenr. The change was attributed
to the fact that formerlr wells with free subsoil
communication were the sources of drinking
water, whereas cemented cisterns as now almost
universally used. These cisterns are like sealed
liottles into which the water pours through
filters, and to this improved supply of drinking
water the present iuimnnify from epidemics of
typhoid is attributed. This observation from a
prominent physician is one of much Interest, for
impure drinking water is a recognized cause of

Maj. Spilker is a little mau, very fat, very gen
ial, aud with a head as devoid of hair as a por
celain door knob. His wife, Mrs. Agiltha Spilker,
is scrawny, sarcastic, and deaf as a saw log. A
person could kick a tin bath-tub down ths hack
stairs all night,and Mra.Spilker would snore like
a Dass norn, in ouasioi ignorance or the noise,
which proves that she is rather deaf.
There are two things in the world of which
Mrs. Spilker is very fond a dinner party and
her hnsband. She never falls to accept an invi
tatiou to one or to carry the other with her. For
the last twenty vears this couple have been in
regular attendance at every party given by their
friends, and on thes occasion ilsj. Spilker,
when called on for a toast, would always give
one to "the babies" in such a happy style that it
never failed to create a good deal of mirth. His
wife, although she could not hear a word, knew
what her husband's toast was, and when bs sat
down she always supplemented it with a few
appropriate remarks, in which she set forth his
fondness for babies. Net long since they attend
ed a dinner party given by a friend np town, and,
unfortunately for Mai. Spilker and the assembled
gnesta, he changed Lis toast withont warning
his wife of the fact, who, of course, thought her
husband would confine himself to his subject.
"ow, Major Spilker," ssid Mrs. Barker, tbe
hostess, as the dinner advanced, "it is your turn
to give a toast, ami, pray, say something com
plimentary to our sex."
"When my charming hostess," said tbe Major
rising, "requests me to do a thing, it is my duty
to obey. Therefore, I tske pleasure in drinkinr
w uti.u .uo iwicr-oui a uesi gin to man.
Ths ladies who cherish us in prosperity, soothe
ns in adversity, and by their tender ministering
lighten tbe burden of life I drink to the ladies."
When the applause subsided, Mrs. Spilker
ignorant of the true subject of the toast, bnt
glowing with pride and admiration, said:
"Oh, Mrs. Barker, yon don't know how fond
the Major is of them. I've seen him have two or
three on bis lap at once, and"
"Algitha!" gasped the Major.
"Just teasing the life out of the poor dear
things. He is snch a favorite with tLsm, and
every chance he gets he is sure to have them in
his arms, or to be romping with thsm. He's got
the lovingeat natnr of any man I ever saw, and
somehow they come to him when thsy won't to
any on else."
