Lateutufflnitf!rtejt-tltne for felling-timber

raili or stakes, or poiU for4 fencing. -At that
season of the'year the new wood bas arrired at
iti complete maturity, and there. is leu tap and
albumen in timber than there if at any season of
the yean which albumen when exposed to the
influence oi the weather, hastens the decay of
timber. If timber be cut and eplit out in the
latter part of Autumn, the reasoning process is
much mere gradual and perfect, because' the
grain of the timber contract More equally and
uniformly, rendering the timber firmer and leui
porous, and leu cracked and checked,- than
when it is cutatmany otherseatonsof the year.
Besides this, timber that is cat in late Autumn,
and split out or sawed out before "spring", will
not "powder post," nor be injured by the worms
working in it, nor be injured by dry jot, as U the
case wlth'tiinber, many time?," which' beg been
cat at some other seasons of the year. Fence
posts and stakes, particularly, no matter what
the kind of timber may be, when felled and split
oat in late Autumn, will outlast other posts and
takes, of the same kind of tlmb'ef, which may
be cat at a different season of the year, by sev
eral years, according to the time it may be cat.

Now, when the leares hare fallen from the
trees, and eo abundant in the weods, it would
be'well to inquire what good use they can be
put to. Collected and used as bedding fer
stock, they make excellent manure, as they
absorb the liquid secretions, and decay rapidly
when placed in a heap, becoming a rich, black
mould, the very thing In which,, plants love to
grew. For these things they are preferable to
straw. We would use them for bedding horses,1
cattle and swine; using a large proportion, the
more the better, as thereby the amount of ma
nure is increased. It is poor economy to allow
sueh an amount of useful matter to go to waste,
and farmers should draw upon the woods for aid
in renewing the soil of their exhausted fields.
We know of several farmers who do so to their
own benefit, and the increased fertility of their

as may be. seen during our most severe weather;
by removing a bed of leaves, the ground will be
found unfrozen. We will try a good many ten
der bulbs and perennials under a coating of
leares this season, and hope to have them all
eound in the spring. It Is ' necessary' to lay
brush or something else over the leaves, to hin
der their blowing away by the winds.
. How to Keep Potatoes.
al ore potatoes are spoiled through sweating
than freezing. I never lose any, but save them
thus: I raise the place six inches where Iwant
the pit or hole', beating it hardwltfi the spade.
I throw the potatoes on, shaping like a pyramid,
and cover thickly with straight clean straw. I
then eomme nee at the bottom, throwing on the
earth and tramping it hard with my feet; one
foot thick Is plenty. When within a foot of
the top, I make a bole in the straw Jwith my
hand and put in a small furuel, one foot loag
and three inches square. Close- the straw tight
areucd the funael, and cover closely with earth,
clapping the hole solid with tho spade. Let the
funnel remain two weeks, (cover it with a small
board in case of rain,) then take it out, and cov
er the hole with straw, cover with earth, place
a green sod on the top, set four small forked
takes in the ground, around the heap, cover
with boards to keep eff the rain, and I will in
sure your potatoes. American Agrlculturitl.
Management of Crenm in Cold Weather.
For some reason not yet known, cream skim
med from milk in eold weather, does not come
to batter, when cbnmed, so quickly as that
from the same cow in warm weather. Perhaps
the pellicles, which form the little sacs of but
ter in the cream, are thicker and tougher.
There arc two methods ef obviating this troub
le in a great degree. One Is, to set the pan of
milk on the stove, or in some warm place as
oon as strained, and let it remain until quite
warm some say, until a bubble or two rises, or
until a skim of cream begins to form on the
surface. Another mods .recommended, is to
add a'tablespoonful of salt to a quart of cream
when it is skimmed. Cream thus prepared, will
generally come to butter In a few minutes when
churned. It is thought the sail acts upon the
eeating of the butter globules and makes them
tender, so that they break readily when beaten
by churning Maim Farmer.
Choi I c in Horses
I knew a horse taken with 'the cholic while
on a tread wheel to a carding machine, so that
the owner thought that he could not live. He
got three veterinary surgoor.", who did what
they could, anil all decided that the horse must
die. The man's wife, who believed and prac
ticed hygiene, from the time the horse was ta
ken, tried to pnrauade her husband to use a wet
bandage, but he insisted it would do no good.
After all had glvsn up that the horse could no
longer lire, by her entreaties, (the doctors say
ing it could do bo good or hurt,) they took a
thick bed-comforter, bouad it around the horse,
went to the well and drew water, .and poured
It on till thoroughly soaked. It steamed like
a pot boiling. In less than fifteen minutes from
the time he eommeneed the watering process,
the horse was up and eating, to the great' sur
prise of the horse doctors who knew that he
could net live.
Cinders for Pig.
J.J. Mechl.ofTriptree Hall, England, has
been publUhing his experience In fattening
swine, and, among other things, ho has learned
the fact, "that pigs are very fond of coal ashes
or cinders,' and that yon can hardly fatten pigs
properly on boarded floors, without giving them
a moderate supply dally or occasionally . In
the absence.of coal ashes, burned clay or .brick
dust is a good substitute. If you do not Ripply
ashes, they will gnaw or eat the walls of their
beds. Ileavetotdence to-explain the cause
f this want. It is notorious that coal dealers,
where pigs have access to the coals, are gener
ally ueceesful "pig feeders. Those who find
that their pigs, when shut up, do not progress
favorably, will do well to try theplan. A neigh
bor of mine found that a score of fat pigs con
sumed a basket of burned clay ashes dally:

Here the dinner-bell rang. v v
A friend In Louisiana, of the legal persua
lion, writes in this wise:
A man who had never seen the inside of a
court house until he was Introduced as a witness
in a case pending in one of our District Court,
sitting Iat Fall, in the northern part of the
State, being sworn, took a position with his
back to the jury, and began telling his story to
the Judge. Judge B. n, in. his bland and
courteous manner, said: c'
" Address yourself to tho jury, sir."
The man made a short pause; but not com
prehending what was said to him, continued his"
narrative. His Honor was then more explicit,
and said to him:
"Speak to the jury, sir the men Bitting be
hind you on the benches."
The1 witness then tnmed around, and making
an awkward bow, said, with great gravity of
, "Good morning, gentlemen!"

Governor 13 was a splendid lawyer, and
could talk a jury out of their seven senses.
He was especially noted for his success In crim
inal cases, almost always clearing his client.
He was once counsel for a man accused of
horse-stealing. He made a long, eloquent and
touching speech? The jury retired, but return
ed in a few minutes, and, with tears in their
eyes, proclaimed the man net guilty. An old
acquaintance stepped up to Jem, and said: "Jem.
the danger is now passed; and now,' honor
bright, didn't you steal thathorscl" Towhieh
Jem replied: " Well, Tom, I all along thought
I took that horse; but since I've heard the Go
vernor's speech, I don't believe I did!"

the blood ceases to flow. Only severed arteries
throw blood in jets, and they get their blood

remedy must be applied between the heart and

vein had been severed, the blood would have
flowed in a regalar stream, and slowly, and, on
the other hand, the tie would be below the

Northern emigration, from Missouri, Iowa,
Illinois, Wisconsin or Michigan, either forCal
ifurnla or any part of Kansas or Southern Ne
braska, will find a mail route to this point, on
a State Road from Des Moines, Iowa; and as
good roads through .Missouri, by way of Savan
nah and Oregon, to this place, as to any other
point on the, river. There are good landings
on both sides of the river; and on the Kansas
side, all streams and sloughs, to the Nemaha,
haveree bridges, recently made for the Gov
ernment trains from this'place to .Salt Lake
and Uuh. We can say to the California emi
gration, that they can strike the old California
Road within 12 miles of this place, and they
will find good grazing for stock within half a
mile of the river, and plenty of wood and water
on the route to the Big Blue, only 80 milee from
here; and they will find this road ever 40 miles
shorter than the road from St. Joseph, and over
60 miles shorter than that from Leavenworth.
We refer persons to the map, in proof of this
statement; and we only ask emigrants and tra
vellers to try this route, and we pledge our
selves to pass them over the river free, on their
return, if they.are not satisfied oftheforegoinr
facts. - c
White Cloud has three or four good stores
and trading houses; two first-class Hotels;
lumber Is only $15 perl, 000 feet; the country
is rapidly filling up; and there is as good a
farming recion, extending for over SO mila
back of the river, as can be, found in anv part
of Kansas. MOORES Jf TAYLOR. "
