The 11 Mini custom is to give this grain the
poorest soil and the most carcleiu treatment, and
tbe crop yields accordingly. Land containing
more or leu grass aud weeds is turned down,
and on this raw sward the seed is sown. The
land, also, is often ery wet, and when plowed
requires some time to dry, and it bakes if dry
weather occurs, unfitting it for the crop it is In
tended to produce. Of con cm there is a light
crop, and if the season should prove unfavora
ble, a failure. I have never known so mnch
carelessness bestowed upon any grain as upon
buckwheat; yet when rightly managed, it is a
profitable crop. A neighbor of urine, a number
of years ago, purchased a piece of land adjoin
ing bis, and finding it too late tonut in a spring
crop, plowed It for buckwheat. He took; pains
to put it in tbe best condition, and having a
good season, raised a crop that nearly paid for
the laud. He is a first-class fanner, aud knew
the importance of preparing the land well for
whateercrop is put upon it. lie is equally
careful when he sows peas, aud la successful.
The whole secret is to put the land in good
condition. The ground being usually poor, it
needs maunre, and there will be time enough to
apply it. This will insure the growth almost in
detianccof any weather. If the reason favors
the formation' if seed, there will be a heavy
yield. If the sun or frost prevent this (and they
rarely cause a failure), there will be a crop to
turu down, which, with the mellowness of the
soil, caused by being shaded, will put the laud
in a condition, even for wheat, equivalent to a
fallow for 110 grass or weeds can endure a heavy
grow tb of buckwheat; so that, should the buck
wheat miss yielding seed, it will still be a gain
iu the improvement of the land. Never plow
buckwheat ground when wet, for the sun is sure
to bake it iu drying, aud in spite of all that cau
be done, it will be harsh aud lumpy fur years; it
poils the laud. Ilnckw heat seems to admit of
plowing the laud deep. Whether this is owing
to the nature of tbe grain, or to the effect of the
heat and rains on the land, is not clear. Proba
bly the latter is tbe case. At least, as a rule,
land should plowed a little deeper for buck
wheat than for the spring grains. The case
mentioned alnive was one of deep plowing,
bringing up several inchesof mellow soil. Ifnck
wheat will do well on moderately rich soil in
good condition; it will not grow on poor soil
any more than any other grain. Cor. Cnmntry
Feeding Cows for Butter
Mr. ICennett, proprietor of one of the best dai
ry farms iu tbe country, gives the followiugas
his method of feeding cows in milk: 1 will give
you my own method of feeding, and in so doing
those dairymen who aim at quantity will real
ize that wc are shooting at different targets, for
with uie quantity is secondary, quality being
the great desideratnm. Our finest butter is ob
tained iu early summer, when the pastures are
sending forth their early, sweet, succulent
grasses, aud wc deiend entirely upon them; but
when they begin to fail, atnmt midsummer, I
begin to teed wilted clover and a small quanti
ty of grain, increasing as the season adances,
unless the pastures are unusually good. I cut
all my grass early, leginuingby theGthof Jnue,
and generally get a good second crop, thus try
ing to secure an abundance of roweu bay.
Wbcu in winter quarters, I begin feeding at
about 5:30 in the morning with hay, a little
whisp at a time, but not ho mnch but the cows
will eat it up clean. Then, after milking, the
grain from three to sir quarts, according to
the tow consisting of two pat Is com meai aud
one of shorts or bran, or feeding entirely on
corn and cob ground together. Alter this more
hay ? which lasts till 9 a. in. 1 Wgin at 3 p. 111.
again with a little bay, followed with mangels
cut line, a bushtl doing divided among three
cons; then more hay, again, which lasts till
aliout CUl p. m,
I maintain that if more shorts are fed than
are necessary to counteract the heatii.g quality
aud condensed richness of the corn meal, it de
teriorates the quality of the butter. During
last March I saw (his illustrated, beiug railed
n I Kin in Ilostnu to examine some butter iroinoue
of the finest dairies in the State, and which was
troubling the dealer who sold it. He said it
was negatively good; nothing could be said
against, jet little cculd he said in its fax or. It
seemed to lack that fine, nutty tiavor so neces
sary to fresh butter that com mauds over 40
cents per pound. I said at once, on tasting ii.
"too much shorts aud not enough corn meal.
He ansnered, "Just what I thought, but did uot
dare to say so until it was confirmed," Iu less
than ten days the butter from that dairy was
Sprouting Sweet Potatoes.
The following process was offered by a New
Jersey gardener at a late meeting of the New
York Farmers Club, aud we rt-prinluce it tor
what it is worth. It is given as a cheap way of
sprouting, but this we leae for others to judge:
First, make a frame of board-; if the giound
lo cold or heavy, on the surface; if light or san
dy, dig out to the depth of eight or ten inches
from the bottom of the IkmI to top of the frame
iu frout, aud twenty-six or twenty-eight fur
back, to gite a good slope or water shed the.
feet from front to back; take good fresh stable
manure aud coarse hay, bog bay is best; first a
layer of hay, then manure, then repeat; pack it
well to one foat in depth; wet it slightly, eoer
with three inches of sand loam, lay m the pota
toes if small, whole: if larce. cut in two from
end to end, with cut side dowu; cotcrwith oue
incii aim a nail 01 samiy loam. Jeaio so till
the potatoes begin to sprout, then cover with
1 lie same to inree incues to insure good a ml plen
ty of fibrous roots; when the plauts are three
inches high, they are ready to transplant to the
hill or rows for growing. I use no water, pud
dling or plaster in transplanting and lose but
few plants. I'se gla-s or sash to give a quicker
growth to the plants, as I find such worth more
1 ban those grown without; keep the tempera
ture in the trunie from seventy-five to ninety, if
ixwsible. I make my hut-bed's from April loth

When to Plant Grape Vines.
Dr. S. D. Philbrick. of Dcs Moines. Iowa.
wtitca the If owfttrad: It is customarv tu nl.-mr
the grape early in the spring, but I have receiily
made a new departure from the old practice,
aud now plant the vine about the first of June.
Hy this timcthe vine has made :t irronth of ii
or six inches, and iiewrootletshaveheeii (brown
out from the old roots. These new furnish a
tomtaiit feeder for the iue. If properly set,
the vine can 1m planted any time iu the day
without wilting, if the following directions are
carefully adhered to: Take your vino up from
the nursery and place thorn iu a bucket of thin
mud; be careful and not break the vine; hae
jour ground well prepared; iu planting, lie sure
and hae the roots evenly distributed; fill th
pot oue-third full, then pour in a sutlicient
quantity or water to wet thecarthwell; then fill
the pot and press the earth firmly. If these di
rections are strictly adhered to. iJ per cent of
the ines will grow, and iu one week's time
they will look vigorous, and will not lc retarded
iu their growth.' Having Wcome ho thoroughly
convinced that this is the best method or plant
ing tbe vine, I shall still continue to plant as
set forth in this article. Iu conclusion, I would
say be careful and plant ho ines except stroii"

A Seed Tester.
A correspondent in the Faru aud 7rciegivcs
the following directions fur testing the quality
My plan, he a.s, is to make a box about mx
inches deep. Fill in four inches of good soil;
on this lay a thin piece of muslin, just enough
to lit the 1 ox, and make it nicely level 011 t7ie
soil. Ou this muslin put one hundred seeds of
the kind jou wiidi to tct. Cowr Ihem with
nuoiner piece nl inuoliii and an inch of earth.
When done water with idightlv warm waterand
set away in n wann place. The sprouting pro
cess can be much facilitated by placing the box
outhestoe, daily, after the fin is nearly out,
so that the tovr is jnst warm enough to' heat
thelMittomoftho Ikix. Otherwise the box can
be set on bricks that are heated dail for the
purpose. After four or five days lilt off the top
dirt and its covering of cloth carefully. Count
the seeds that hae sprouted, aud if only fifty
of each sort have sprouted, procure new need.
If oter scvcnty-tHe are fpnmtrd. and the
sprouts all look vigorous, the seed will do ery
well. Of course, the greater the per cent, of
those that sprout, the better.
Sis Puiweks Fin: SiiAim I will give yon
my plan of shade for bees iu summer. The first
place, cultivate tbe "round and make it rieli
aud smooth; place the hives in rows cast and
west, lacing the sontli. As soon as yon call pro
cure the. plants in the spring, pnt out a ruw of
suntlowcr plants in front of tbe liive. !.,,
eight inches from the entrance of the hives
pulling one iu trout or each hive.
Astbey grow, trim uff the lower leaves so the
bees will have access bv the time tbe hot nr-itti.
er comes ou, and tbe les w ill U shaded nicelr.
The lower leaves should lie trimn,t l..int
three feet high. Tbis gives a chance for the
circulation ofair, aud hy puUiog some scatter
ing plants between the rows, which makes it a
Jierfect grove. Keep the ground bard, and there
will be no chance for insects. The plants will
grow-from eight to twelve feet high. The bees
work as though they felt prond of such a home.
Dkatuto MArnAriiEBs. We would repeat
the advice heretofore given, aud ure all poul
try breeders to kill off the blue jays at every op
portunity. They are very destructive to little
chicken, especially of the sraallervaricties, aud
made sail havoc among our j ouug Hruwu Lc-
, -' -u. e um nor mid out what
was thinning out onr broods ar first, bnt after
detecting tbe jays in the business we at once
vowed eternal euinity to the whole tribe, and
have killed perhaps a dozen and a half within
a Tew months. It is a good time ol year to
guar,! against sknnks and hawks, and tbe care
fal breeder will! find it necessary to look ont for
rats, ground squirrels aud the nnmerons depre

Lockjaw Error Corrected.
Tbe press of tbe country and public smerallj
bare for some time been faboriag under tbe er
roneous impression that tbe nnmrrons canst of
lockjaw, resalting from wonnds inflicted by toy
listols, vera canned by tbe little paper caps so
areelr nwd by boys & celebrating tbe fourth
of July. Tbis is a great nihtake. as it is not
tbe paper cap pistol, bnt tbe blank cartridge
pistol, with its metallic cartridge, tbat does tbe
fatal mischief. Tbis error is easily accounted
for by tbe fact that few, comparatively, know
of the blank cartridge pistol, while there are
very few wbo do not know of tbe paper cap pis.
tol, aud the little paper caps that have afforded
ine utile unes so mncn Harmless amusement.
The deaths from lockjaw have nearly all oc
curred among boys of from ten to eighteen years
boys big enough to handle the deadly instru
ment and nearly all from wonnds in the palm
of tbe left band. Tbe blank cartridge pistol
most commonly used is about six inches long,
aud explodes a metallic cartridge with a paper
wad, but carries no ball. In order to insert the
cartridge, tbe breech of the barrel, which works
ou a pivot, is ratted by pressing on tbe muzzle
of tbe barrel with the left hand, and frequently
tbe hammer comes down on the cartridge pre
maturely, and before tbe boy has bit left hand
removed from the inuzzle, tbe cartridge is ex
ploded nud the boy shot in the band. Tbe ful
minating powder, the wad or particles of copper
shell indict the wonnd, which is generally so
slight that the boy is able to conceal it from his
parents until it is too late. Thysicians say that
it is not any special pnngency or acridnc in
the fnlmiuating powder which causes lockjaw,
but tbat a lacerated or jagged wound in the
palm of the hand is more likely to result in lock
jaw betanse of the network of nerves andnu
merous blood vessels which conccntro there aud
radiate from that point. The blank cartridge
pistol referred to Kelts at from fifteen to twenty
live ceuts each, aud cartridges at from ten to
fffteen cents a box of fifty, whereas tbe toy pa
per pistol Mdls at from oue to ten cents each,
and the cap about two hundred for a cent. The
cartridge pistol sbonld be prohibited, as it has
already beeu-in some of the Eastern cities, liy
fif vere penalties.

Bcwaro of Hair-Washes.
Ladies, fair ladies, beware of hair-washes. A
medical fiicud iufonns me that it has lately
been discotercd that the active ingredient of all
washes for subduing gray hair is lead, which,
uniting gradually with the natural sulpbiiruf
the hair, forms a blaik siilphnret of lead, which
is really the darkening agent. We know bow de
leteriousand even fatal is the application of
lead iu any chemical shape to tbe jniresof the
human body; what, then, must le the mischief
produced by its beiug continuously anil often
daily rublied into the delicato skin of a l.idy's
scalpf Here, however, is a practical illustra
tion vouched for by ilr. l:rowutiebl,nt Norwich.
The wash had been used for two years, but only
very modtrately, and during all of that
time there was general mcu'c and loss of mus
cular Mjwer. Aliout three mouths since, two
days after an effectual application of tbo wash,
a slight epileptic fit occurred, aud six weeks af
terward a similar application was followed by
palsy of the exterior muscles of the left hand.
Iu this case probably another dose might hae
produced raraljsis, but by this time suiicion
was arroused, aud by steady application vfauti
dotes, tbo symptoms are now disappearing. The
profits of selling these washes are said to be so
tempting that since the secret of the darkening
agent has oozed out, numerous hair dressers,
both in town aud touutry, arc maii3factuiing
them and pressing Ihem upon their customers.
Good Mortar for Brick Buildings.
In a receut paper of the journal of tbe Krauk
lin Institute, Philadelphia. Henry I'embertou
traces the cause of white elilorcsccnce, which so
commonly disfigures brick houses iu cities, main
ly to the euipluymeut of lime coutaiuing magne
sia for the mortar useil in the walls. Theuiag
uesia absorbs tbe snlphurous vapors of the coal
gases iu the air, liecomes sulphate of magnesia,
ami being dissolved by rain, jienetrates the sub-
siauco ni mo uricKS, anil ultimately ellloresces
umjii their surface. Hy using pure lime, instead
of magnesia lime, for the mortar, the evil is pre
sented. Workmen, however, often object to
tho use of pure lime mortar, because it require,
different manipulation from that containing
magnesia. The purest quality of limo is found,
for iiistance, within a Tew miles of Philadelphia,
nud is sold at a lower price than ordinary bull
ders' lime, and yet it will not be accepted or
used by the builders. In some parts of the cuuu
try, however, as in Pittsburg, tbo only lime
mailable rarely contains more than live or six
per cent, of magnesia, and oftcu less than I jier
rent., but tho bricklayers are accustomed to it,
know 110 other, aud use it with entire satisfac
tion; and no incrustation occurs ou tbo buildings
there, notw ilhitandiug the enormous consump

Then, fwld thy ghsnoua banner round thy breast.
And tread in solemn awe, since God Is nigh I

That's a common expres

is summed up in it
The singular thing about
it is, that pain in the back
is occasioned by so many
things. Maybe caused by
kidney disease, liver com
plaint, consumption, cold,
nervous debility, &c.
Whatever the cause, don't
neglect it Something is
wrong and needs prompt
attention. No medicine has
yet been discovered that
will so quickly and surely
cure such diseases as
Brown's Iro Bitters, and
it does this by commencing
at the foundation, and mak
ing the blood pure and rich.

CsDtE date of July 9, 138 Mr. E. R. Eucnr,
of Windsor Locks, Cobil, writes a plain, modest
nam tire, which, from Its very simplicity, his the
true rlg of fine gold. He says -
MMy father Is using. Hunt's Remedy ami seems
to be improving. In fact, he Is very much better
thin he Las been for a long time, lie had been
tapped three tunes. The first time they got
from him sixteen quarts of water, the second
time thirteen quarts, and fully as much moro
the third time, and he would constantly fill
up again every time after be had been tapped,
until he commenced using Hunt's Remedy,
which acted like magic la his case, as ho
begun to improve at once, and now his watery
accumulation passes away through the secretionj
naturally, and he has none of that swelling or
filling up which was so frequent before the func
tions of the kidneys were restored by the use of
Hunt's Remedy. He U a well-known citizen of
this place, and has always been In business here.
Again he writes, Nor. 27, 1452,
I beg most chserf ally and truthfully to state.
In regard to Hunt's Remedy, that Its use was tho
taring of my father's life, X spoke to you In my
previous letter In regard to his being tapped three
times. It Is the most remarkable case that has
ever been heard of In this section. For a man of
his age (sixty years) It is a most remarkable cure.
lie had been unable to attend to bis business
more than a year, and was given up by the doc
tors. MThe first bottle of Hunt's Remedy that ho
used gTc Instant relief. He has used In all seven
Lotties, and continues to use It whenever he feels
drowsy or sluggish, and It affords Instant relief.
Ue Is now attending to his regular business, and
has been several months. I am perfectly willing
that you should publish this letter, as we thor
oughly believe that father's life was saved by
Cling Hunt's Remedy; and these facts given
above may be a benefit to others suffering In like
manner from diseases or inaction of the Kidneys
