now hit tbe earth was yesterday.
How green the meadows were!
The poet, Nature, had no need
- Of an interpreter.
A golden haze enwrapt the hills,
A bright and ambient glow.
Like veil of mist, dropped low and kissed
The t1 ey just below.
Tbe violet? tie j Wnr bells swung
Upon the grassy lea,
And starry daisies raised their eyes
Toward heaven wonderingly
The meadows in their sfceen arrayed.
Looked fair as any bride.
It did not seem one beauteous dream
Of earth had been denied.
To-day the sky U ashen-hueJ,
The wind sobs on the heath.
Dire shadows lie upon the hilU,
And on tbe vale beneath.
But, mirrored in tbe shining glass
Of loving memory ,
The yester's sheen lies bright between
The somber mist and me.
flow Farming Can be Made to Pay.
In order to popularize farming it must
be made to pay. Therefore, all methods
whether of an associative character or
net, must be based upon the ever-recur
ring question, "will it pay T' In order
to make farming pay as it should, there
must be a wise and sagacious adaption
of means used to accomplish the desired
result. The great question for every
farmer to solve is, how can I increase the
J Y Young, Master, -Jed1!0
, Secretary,, Jeuao
average annual yield of my crops?
Not long since one of the most intelli
gent farmers of the State said to us : "I
will surrender all my interest in the re
duced price of machinery and sugar, for
that knowledge w'jich will e table me to
increase the annual average yield of my
wheat crop one busbrl to the acre."
If a judicious rotation of crops and a
proper system of culture will increase
the annul average yield of wheat from
twelve to twenty bushels to the acre,
then the farming community will be
making some substantial progress. True
there are other evils aside from the low
average yield tf crops. There is a
continual increase of taxes aal xpendi
tares, that would absorb even an increase
' ia the productive capacity f our farms.
It will not do to neglect one branch of
reform while pursuing the ther. Last
ing prosperity mustaccruefrom improved
arnrnltiirer -an anr association of
farmers that does not spend more time
in seeking how to improve agriculture,
by adopting better methods of culture,
are wasting ntach valuable time.
Such .pertinent questions as the fol
lowing ones, 'must be discussed until we
arrive At the truth : Shall we manure
for the "corn crop, instead of the wheat
crop'? "S'tall the corn crop receive the
coarse manure of the farm, which by a
seasons culture will become thoroughly
rotted and .incorporated with the soil,
and thus fit it for the wheat and other
crops that are to follow ? Shall farmers
by pursuing 'this jlan, thus provide the
wheat plants, -that are to succeed the
cern, with an abuadaut supply of well
prepared plant food, that can be readily
assimilated by the wheat plants, instead
of compelling thcai to wait -for the -rot-ting
of-tlreuoi or coarse manures?
ThKqueBttonofspeeial.crqps must be
considered. How can I grow several
crops that will.lollow.in succession, and
wet which wiB not 'intss&se -with each
other, which will give constant employ
ment, and from which an ineoate can be
delivered at .different seasons of theyear?
Then, there is the question of -special
fanning to be considered. For what are
my lands best adapted ? What can I
grow the cheapest and the best? These
questions must of necessity be settled by
experience; and success will attend the
farmer who, after carefully considering
and adopting a definite line of action,
sticks to such a system of cropping year
after year, whether the prices he obtains
for his crops are low or high. Has not a
reputation for producing a number one
product, also a cash value ; and will not
persistent effort, and the mastery of
the minutest details of the business be
ultimately crowned with success T It is
by carrying out the foregoing suggestions
that farming can be made to pay, not
only this year, but in years to come.
The leading question in determining our
course of action for the "present year is,
will we profit by the experience already
gained, and so direct all future efforts to
make the farm pay better the present
season, than in any of the preceding
ones. Colman't Enrol World,
A correspondent of tbe Ottawa Re
publican writes as follows ia regard to
flax culture: "We plowed up some ot
our ground between the fifteenth and
twentieth of April, the balance bad been
plowed the fall before. What we plowed
in the spring was in excellent condition,
being the south side of a hill and of a
sandy nature, after plowing we harrowed
the ground once, and sowed the seed on
the evening of May 2nd and the morning
of the 4th, and dragged it with a drag,
made of.boanls.7 feet long and 6 inches
wide, 2 inches thick, nailed weatherboard
fashion to another running cross ways.
There were about eight acres put in, in
The rest of the ground we shoyeled up
April 27, after the weeds had started,
harrowed it twice, andsowed the seed
April 30, then we harrowed it again.
The first rain after the snow fell on the
night ofJMay 15th, which , brought it
up nicely. The fall 'plowed piece grew
uneven but did finely until about two
weeks before it was cut, when the weeds
were about as high as the flax. It had
to be cut before It was fully ripe on ac
count of the weeds. We cut it July 13th
and 14th. The other piece was perfectly
clean, not a weed in it. It was out July
25tb. and stood straight and clean.
We thrashed it with a common Pitt
Separator on July 29th till the 31st.
The fall plowed piece often acres turned
off 80 bushels of foul seed; the spring
plowed piece of eight acres turned off 84
bushels of clear seed. The fall plowed
piece was the best ground, had raised a
crop of wheat tbe summer before, and
should have raised the best flax. The
other piece had raised a crop of wheat
also, and the only advantage was in
spring plowing. The roots of flax grow
btraight down, and it requires mellow
toil. It will not grow on hard ground
like oats, neither will it choke down
We sowed half a bushel of seed to the
acre, and paid 2 per bushel for seed.
Sheep vs. Farming.
There are many reasons why every
firmer would find it profitable to
keep at least a small flock of fine-wooled
sheep on a farm where grain is the prin
cipal crop. By raising his own mutton
a large saving is made in the butchers
bill ; the sale of wool will bring ready
money just before harvest, when it is
most needed to conduct farming opera'
tions with celerity and economy. Nor
are these the greatest benefits to accrue
from a system of mixed farming, in
which sheep raising has its appropriate
Sheep are the best scavengers that can
be put on a field after the grain is cut, to
clear the land of weeds and their drop
pings are a far better fertilizer than the
debris of stubble and litter they consume,
which otherwise would have to be plowed
under to decompose. In a country like
California where the noxous herbage
tends to a rapid usurpation of the soil,
the services of sheep are really most in
valuable to keep the lands trom being
overrun by it.
When sheep husbandry shall become
in the Pacific states a part of every
farmers operations, we mak look for a
much higher standard in the grades of
wool, as it will be in the power of
the small herdsman to cut out the infe
rior animals, and to retain for the breed
ing purposes and the fleece, only such as
are of superior quality.
It must not be inferred however, that
the large herdsmen are indifferent to the
matter of breeding; they are constantly
improving their flocks. In no other
wool growing country theie are probably
more expense and trouble incurred in
the attempt to obtain animals of the best
points for breeders, both maleand female
than in California; but those must nec
essarily be limited to such animals as
were kept for special breeding, as, where
flocks number tens of thousands, the
matter of pairing male and female, so as
best to secure an improved offspring, is
in a great measure impossible. Pacific
The Kicbest Boy.
The richest boy is not tbe one who has
the largest amount of money in prospect.
To our mind the richest boy is one who
is good hearted, honest, intelligent, am
bitious, willing to do right. He is one
who loves his mother and alwaya has a
kind word for her; who loves his sister,
or -sisters and tries to help them with
true affection. He is the boy who does
not call his father "the old man," bnt
who loves him, speaks kindly to and of
him, and tries to help him as the signs
of old age gather fast upon his brow.
The richest boy is one who has pluck
to fight his destiny and future. He is
the one" who has tbe manhood to do
right and be honest and of striving to be
somebody; who is above doing a mean
action who would not tell a lie to screen
himself, or betray a friend. He whose
young mind is full of noble thoughts for
the futurer.who ia determined to win
name by good deeds. This is the richest
boy in America. Which one of our
readers is it?
This boy we would be glad to see,
would like to take him by the hand to
tell him to go on earnestly, that success
might crown his efforts. And if he is a
poor boy, we should meet him at the
threshold, bid htm enter, and give him
good advice, well and kindly meant.
That other rich boy we don't care any
thing about, for there are fools and snobs
enough to worship, flatter, and spoil mm
Valie $f Evergreens Among Fralt Trees
A well grown evergreen treen gives off
continually an exodium of warmth and
moisture tbafreacbes a distance of its
area in height; and when the tree plant
era advocate shelter belts, surrounding a
tract of orchard of fifty or more acres,
when the influence of such belt, can only
reach the height of the trees of such'belt,
they do that which will prove of little
value, Toameliroate climate, to assist
in preventlon'of injury against extreme
climatic cold in winter and of the frost
ing of the germ bud of the fruit in spring
all orchards should have planted, in and
among them indiscriminately, evergreen
trees at distances each of not more than
onehundredand fifteen feet apart. Such
a course pursued, we have no doubt, will
render great health to the trees and be
productive of more regular and uniform
crops of fruit. ' At all events, it is worth
trial, and we will be glad if our readers
can inlorm us of any practical experi
ment on the subject Scientific American.
The (leneral Worry.
Things are pretty well balanced in
this world, so far as taking comfort goes
and I begin to believe that, high or low,
alt have their tribulations. Fishes are
hooked, wormes are trodden on, birds
are fired at. Worry is every-where.
Poor men's wives worry because the bread
won't rise, or the stove won't draw, or
the clothes line breaks, or the milk
burns, or the pane of glas is mended
with putty, or tlioy can't afford to hire
help. Rich men's wives worry becau-c
the preserve dish is not of the latest
pattern, or because somebody finds out
how a party dress is trimmed, before the
party happens, or because their help
sauces them, breaks up tea s? U, or gets
drunk. Causes vary, but worry a crages
about the same.
Wheat as Keel for Animals.
On an extensive farm In England the
horses were fed all through the years'
plowing on boiled wheat and cut straw
as their sole feed, The farmer reports
that his horses were never stronger to
labor or looked better. Another farmer
fed his store pigs with di.ea.eil potatoes,
boiled and mashed, to which bad been
added equal parts of red wheat and tale
barley ground into meal. He reports :
"Never do I remember to have pigs get
on better. I have, also, thirty porkers
doing well ou the same fool. They are
not only growing but fattening rapidly.
It is proper just here to remark that
wheat abound-) particularly with gluten,
or muscle making matter. Hence it is
excellent to restore strength, and good
for all working animals.
Plants for Greenhouses.
Those who are in the habit of buying
plants at greenhouses, know how resh
and delicately green they look when they
are first taken out, and how apt they are
to droQp down afterwards, from the ef
fects of the change from the farm, moist
air of such houses, to the dry atmosphere
and draughts of the sitting-room. We
see it stated that if the plants are envel
oped for a few days in thin, soft paper,
leaving an opening at the top, they
will become acclimated without feeling
the change. Sprinkle the leaves daily
on both sides, with a small wisp broom,
with warm water. Western Farm Jour
Cottage Cheese. Place thick lop
pered milk on the stove, and let it heat
thoroughly, not to cook, or it will be
hard. Pour into a coarse cloth, and
let it drain until dry; season with salt
and butter. Should it be rather dry,
moisten with milk or cream, and make
into balls. Some prefer what is called
'smear kase." Prepare the milk as is
stated above, but instead of making into
balls, thin the sweet cream and add
little pepper. Country Gentleman.
TO Restore Black Sii.ks. Old black
silks can be made to look new by the
following treatment: First rub off all
dust with a woolen cloth : then mix
equal quantities of vinegar and strong
tea, with which wash the silk by thor
oughly rubbing with a clean flcnnel
cloth. Fold closely, let it remain a
while, and then iron on tbe wrong side
with a hot iron.
Graham Bread. 1 coffee-cup flour,
2 coffee-cups Graham flour, 1 coffee-cup
warm water, -coffee cup yeast, a little
molasses, a teaspoonful salt, -teaspoon
soda dissolved in the water. Make as
stiff as it can be stirred with a spoon.
Let it rise over night, and bake about an
hour in a moderate oven. This quantity
makes 1 loaf.
The plan of plucking the blossoms on
potato vines haying ;been recommended
as saving an endless drain on the ener
gies oMbe-plant, J. D. Thomas says in
-the Country Gentleman that, while this
is true in theory, in practice he found
no appreciable difference in the rop
produced in alternate rows, where -the
Lexperimeniljad been tried.
