A Chester County Farm.
Jeseph B. Baker, jr.'s, Noted Stock Farm.
In the village of Thorndale, en the
Pennsylvania railroad, midway between
Philadelphia and Lancaster, lies the " In
gleside stock farm," the property of Jes.
B . Baker, esq., and operated by his son,
Jeseph B. Baker, jr. The farm embraces
400 acres of Chester Valley's fertile soil,
and containing as it does grass and grain
land of Ne. 1 quality, with streams of run
ning spring water, it is certainly entitled
te the distinction of a tirst-class stock
A few days age a representative of the
Uecerd paid "Ingleside" a visit, piincipal
ly te leek ever the stock, but en approach
ing the property one cannot fail te admire
the splendid situation with almost every
needed facility ; the beautiful and com
modious mansion, located en an eminence ;
a stock barn possessing all the conveni
ences and comforts ; fields inclesed with
geed substantial fences, and a general com
pleteness in all the miner details. This,
however, has only been accomplished after
eighteen years of experience and hard
labor, and, although the interior ar
rangements of the place seem all that
could be desired, Mr. Baker does no pro
pose te step Iiere, but contemplates
making numerous ether improvements.
In looking ever the stock, the horses
first claimed our attention, and at their
head stands Inkerman, awarded by the
Pennsylvania state agricultural society, at
their fair in 1879, the grand sweepstakes
prize, for the best stallion en exhibition of
any breed. Inkerman is bay in color,
with black points, has two white hind past
erns. 10 hands high, and is ten years old
in May next. His sire was Speedwell
ilambletenian, by Rysdyk's Ilamble Ilamble
teniau, dam Luey by Fenimore Trafalgar,
by Brown Trafalgar. Inkerman has never
had the opportunities for developing his
speed, but he gave his owners encourage
ment enough as a iour-year-eld, when he
trotted ever Pottstown track in 2:40 ; and,
pessessiug as he does, quite fully the
points of a geed horse, there is no reason
why, with proper handling, he should net
be able te trot very fast. Inkerman is a
stoutly-bred horse, with a medium sized
but well formed head and prominent eye,
suggestive of an overflow of intelligence.
He has rather a long and well formed
neck, body of the massive and substantial
kind, shoulders strong and sloping, quar
ters heavily muscled aud loin excellent.
He is provided with a strong set of limbs,
and is net known te have a blemish. Judg
ing from the geed sized and shapely colts,
he would undeubtly prove a great success
in the stud. In the fall he will be devel
oped for speed, and in the hands of Mr.
Lyman Redmond we certainly expect te
sec an addition te the 2:30 list.
Andes is a bay horse, 10 years old, by
impei ted Bennie Scotland, kite deceased;
dam, Yeung Fashion, by Monarch, out of
Old Fashion. Andes is heavy muscled
behind, has a geed, sensible head, strong
body, deep through the shoulders, power
ful limbs, which he handles with consider
able dexterity, having shown a mile in 2.43
The next her&e shown was Mr. Craig's dun
gelding, Lyman, a great local favorite, and
which has but recently arrived at the es
tablishment. As he was led out by his
old handler, Mr. Redmond who, by the
way, is as careful of his charge as the
most affectionate parent is of his child we
thought the great trotter never looked
mere spirited. There is always something
about the horse te admire, no matter hew
many times you may have seen him, and
as he is being jogged daily, the necessary
spring preparation te perfect his conditieu
will be exceedingly light. Anether horse
of geed eutwaid appearance, and, it
is said, of geed action, is a chestnut
gelding, 0 years old, by Black Ham
bleteniau, he by Old Ilumblctenian,
the property of Mr. Charles Penrose of
Coatesville. Among the breed marcs there
is a chestnut mare, 18 years old, by Seely's
American Star, dam by Andrew Jacksen,
jr., he by Old Andrew Jacksen, he by
Yeung Bashaw ; black mare, about 18
years old, by Cassius M. Clay, out of a
Bcllfeundcr mare. This marc was said te
have been very fast, and she formerly be
longed te Henry Jehnsen, of Baltimore.
Spotted Fawn (thoroughbred), 14 years
old, by Deucalion, dam by Commedore ;
Seabird, a chestnut mare, 10 years old, by
Blackbird, dam Bet Arlington, by Arling
ton, second dam by imported Margrave ;
Daughter of Blackbird, 10 years old, by
Blackbird, dam Fly, by Planet. The last
three mares were purchased at a late sale
of Colonel McDauiel's in this city. Bay
mare, by Frank Pierce, jr., purchased at
the same sale with Flera Temple and in
foal by Inkerman ; Hannah Inker
man, by Inkerman, dam Hannah,
by Areola, he by Lexington. This
mare captured the prize as a suckling filly
at Lancaster in 1875, and Mr. Redmond,
who handled her as a two-year-old, claims
that he has driven her quarters in thirty
eight seconds. She is in foal by Inkerman
an experiment in breeding of which Mr.
Baker desires te test the result. Avery
handsome and finely formed breed mare is
the dam of Hannah Inkerman, Hannah,
10 years old, by Areola. This marc has
had three colts by Inkerman and one by
Andes, and in 1875, at Lancaster, she re
ceived the first premium as a breed mare.
Lizzie Inkerman, 4 years old, out of Lizzie
by a son of Gray Eagle, is a well propor
tioned mare, anil is in foal by the thorough
bred horse Andes. Bay mare Jbviel, 6
years old, by imp. Hannah, dam unknown,
is in foal by Andes. Mr. Theodere Justice
of this city, has a fine-looking four-year-old
bay filly in quarters for
the winter, her sire being Andes,
dam Hannah. Ethel Inkerman is a
bay, four years old, sired by Inkerman,
dam Lizzie. She is in foal by Andes. A
stout-built e-year-old mare, by Inkerman,
out of Betsy Inkerman, 5 years old, by
Inkerman, is in foal by Inkerman. A
chestnut gelding, 4 years old, by the
Brune horse, by Mambrino Chief, dam
supposed te be a thoroughbred, is an un
usually well-developed horse, and lias the
appearance of a fast one. A well-broken
and speedy traveler is a bay gelding, 5
years old, by Inkerman, out of the mare
by Frank Pierce, jr. This horse had an
injury te one of his hind feet some time
age, caused by coming in contact with a
wire fence, but it is mending fast, and he
moves with it apparently as sound as ever.
Dallas Iukermau, a bay, 6 years old, 15
hands high, was the first of Inkerman's
get, his dam being Fancy, by Fen Fen
imerc's Trafalgar. Dallas is a natural trot
ter, and this season will be trained. The
weanlings en the farm are four in number,
and they arc particularly noticeable for
their geed size and shape. Hannah, by
Areola, is represented by a bay colt, by
Inkerman, but by some unfortunate acci
dent the youngster has lest the sight of one
of his eyes. Lizzie, by a son of Gray Eagle
has a bay lilly by Inkerman ; Hannah In
kerman has a bay by Dallas Inkerman,
and Betsey Inkerman has a bay colt by
Dallas Inkerman, By far the most likely
young ones en the farm are the 2-year-old
Ellwood and Edna Inkerman. The first
colt is a stoutly-formed bay, while Edna is

exacting could wish. Yeu might seach
for a long while and net find a 2-year-old

Anether premising young one is Brita

Before closing our description of the
horses it would have been very unfortun
ate if we should have emitted the dam of
Inkerman, Lucy, new 20 years old. She is
a brown mare, about 15 hands high, and
was sirea ey a enimore's Trafalgar. She
was 2 years old when purchased by Mr.
Baker, and for ever seventeen years she
has been used by Mr. Baker as his favor
ite driving animal. Although showing old
age in leeks, her eyes are as brilliant as in
younger days, and when harnessed up for
a little jog, she will start off as merrily as
a newly broken colt. Inkerman was her

De Varieties Wear Out.
One of our leadinsr scientific men seme
time age wrote an essay en this subject,
and concluded that there is no reason te
believe they de ; but somehow in every
variety of farm aud garden- product new
kinds are continually being introduced,
and we suppose the old ones die or wear
out, or in some mysterious way disappear,
which is the same te us as if they died or
Take early tomatoes, for example. There
has been hardly a year in our long life that
new varieties have net been introduced
with a reputation of being earlier than any
existing. Once in a while the reputation
has been made in advance of the facts,
but iu a large number of cases the facts
were undeniable the varieties were earlier
than any known. Yet at this day the
average tomato is no earlier than it was
fifty years age. Then in these parts it
was considered pretty geed work te get a
geed dish of tomatoes by the fourth of
July by any ordinary garden culture, and
it is se yet. The man who can get any
thing worth while from even his earliest
varieties by the end of June is a fortunate
fellow. New, what are we te judge from
all this. It is net that these early
varieties are fraud we all knew it is net
se ; it can only be that these varieties in
that particular respect that gives them
value te us wear out or iu some way go back
en us. It is tlie same with peas, potatoes,
wheat, eats and many things. New ones
are continually coming up, all supposed te
be better in some respects than any new
existing, and indeed they in most cases
arc, yet is equally clear that en the whele
there is net much gain ever the varieties
popular fifty years age. "We seem te be
gaining all the time, but is it net rather
because the old kinds deteriorate ? The
whole experience seems like the ancient
treadmill. We keep stepping up and up,
but de net get farther ahead, because the
wheel is going back against us.
It is perhaps as well that varieties de
thus wear out. It keeps us active. It is
like the war against weeds in our garden
and farm-crops. The crops require culture
but in many cases they would get little
only for the weed, and hence the soil is
stirred and the main crop is benefited. It
is well te knew that varieties will we ar out,
then our energies are bent te keeping up
the grade. It is a benefit all round.
Wc have net taken the popular side of
the question in regard te the planting of
trees along the public highways. We de
net agree in the opinion that roadside
trees are a benefit in any way, but the
contrary. Admitting the fact of their de
sirability during three months in the year,
in protecting the traveler against the rays
of the sun, for the rest of the year we
may include the whole nine months they
are damaging te the read, as well as te a
considerable strip of land which could
otherwise be cultivated with the rest for
farming purposes. Every person using a
read knows full well the influence of even
the naked tree upon its condition.
Even a macadamized read is striking
ly affected by a row of trees, which, in
protecting the read-bed against the drying
power of the sun, maintain it in a moist
and unresisting state te the wheels of
heavily-laden wagons, thus allowing it te
be almost constantly full of ruts, increasing
the draft upon the horses, straining and
wrecking the wagon and adding te deuble
the expense in keeping that and the gears
in repair. We suggest te these advocat
ing " trees along highways," te take note
of what we say. and sit down and make
an estimate of the credit and debit account
fairly, and let us knew what the quetcnt
We have been led te this subject again
by noticing in the Pacific Sural Press an
answer from Mr. Geerge H. Seach, of
Napa county, California, te an inquiry as
te the tree best adapted te planting along
the public reads. In this answer he
says : " The elm is the king when it gets
age, its slew growth being its only draw
back." As we cannot agree with him in this
opinion, from what we have seen of the
elm, we should like some additional infor
mation about it. Locality and latitude, it
it is true, may exert a marked influence
upon this as upon many ether trees ; yet
in this case it may net held geed, as we
notice that many elms have been set out
along some of the drives in Fairmount
park. There must have been solid reason
for this, as, being exposed as they are and
will be, failure in net meeting the pub
lic expectation will be a standing sub
ject of comment and criticism. We con
fess that, in our limited knowledge as te
the character of the tree, we have net been
smitten with its beauty or umbrageous
ness ; but we admit of its attractiveness
when nude and reaches a height of from
twenty te forty feet. In its affording less
shade than most ether ornamental trees,
this very negative qnality may commend
it for the purpose indicated. Germanteicn
About Rotten Manure.
The Germantown Telegraph says :
At a meeting of farmers and fruit fruit
geowers some time age, there was consid
erable discussion en the question of fer
mented manure. One speaker thought
that it did no harm te the manure left be
hind te have the black liquid run away
from it, as this was a sign that it was
being thoroughly decomposed. Others ap
pear te have taken the stand that every
thing in the manure-heap was of value as
it steed. We de net understand that the
one who thought the manure was the
better for the black liquid going out from
it attached no value te the black liquid ;
perhaps he would utilize this in some
ether way. The report is obscure en this
point ; but it is still a novel pointtemake
that the manure-pile is the better for its
In some first-class works en agriculture,
where recommendations are often made en
"perfect farming," without any regard te
the means at hand te carry out the recom
mendations contained in the book, it has
been insisted en that the best results arc
obtained from barnyard manure when a
cistern is built at the feet of the manure
pile, and the liquid contents daily pumped
ever the whole solid mass. We de net
knew that anyone ever went te work te de
just this thing, for many of the practical
recommendations of these books, written
as if they had actually been done, arc tee
often but the writers' idea of what ought
te be done. Still, the simple recommenda
tion by intelligent men shows hew much
they value this " black " material, and hew
very different is the recommendation new
It is one of the most remarkable phases
of agriculture that advocates can be found
intelligent advocates for the most op
posing views ; and it is a sad reflection en
any supposed science in agriculture. It is
net long since we noticed in our columns
that though the practical farmer these
who watch results had for years been
coming te the conclusion that it was best
te keep manure covered from the rain, ene
of our most progressive Chester county
farmers has taken the ground that it was
absolutely useless. This friend will prob
ably consort with our present one, who re
gards draining the manure heap as no less
te it. Still there is a science in agricul
ture, and especially in the management of
manures. We held that when there is
any great contradiction in results, such as
is here indicated, it is because the real
principle at the bottom of the practice has
net been reached, The shell has been in
hand only, there is a kernal at the bottom
of it all. Fer our part we like te note
this apparent diversity of conclusions
from the same facts, as it compels us te J
leek deeper for the cause.
