The rery lamentable failure ot the
wheat in quite a large area of the West
necessitates the substitution of some oth
er grain to fill ,the gap ; a quick growing
and profitable grain. Such a one as
buckwheat. Wherever the farmer has a
fueae oi tolerably good land, he may be
nre almost os profitable .a harvest of
buckwheat as if lie badswn Tappahan

to prepare for jLtj ,we say "prepare7 for

and the corn laid by.
For a good crop of buckwheat, we plow
the land the f rsi week of June, or there
abouts. That gives us a double advan
tage. In the first place we turn under
ty .the weeds and grass which were suck
iugi&e Iffe.otft of the land without re
tvrig any benefit, and making them
do us good as a sort of gren manure. We
believe in manuring any way, and in
green manure when no other can be had.
In jtUo aef t place, we destroy a whole
generation ,of weeds just when they are
tabou.t ito make seed for another "nine

The proper time to .sow buckwheat de
pends .somewhat on the climate. As a
rule applicable to all portions of the
country, we may say, that it will mature
its seeds about sixty days fjoa germina
tion. A frost, however slight, at once
puts a stop .to further growth of the
plants iience, it follows that we must
bow it about two months before the first
frost may be expected to come. In the
latitude of Missouri and Kansas, the last
Klc of July is the proper ,ti,me ,to sow.
Twenty years' observations have shown
that between the 25th of July and,6th of
August a drenohing.ra.ui maybe counted
on. It has failed only .twice during the
twenty years to be the rule. This is then
just the thing , to gie the buckwheat a
good start and the turnips, too for, as

It is not only useless, :but .ouite futile
to sow buckwheat any earlier. Wehave
sown it in May and in June for bee-feed;
the plants would grow and blossom lux
uriantly, ut -no.gra.ip .would set. The
pkwt wfti .pot make seed until cool
nights et;ip. We have heard already of
farmers w,ho;itended spring buckwheat

after sowing the land must fee rolled.
The roller presses the loose ground unto
the seed, and when the dry, hot, scorch

the tender jerm will find, protection un
der the pressed soil. Every gardener
knows tp he pads the seed bod with
the back of the spade the same principal
is carried out in rolling our fields imme
diately after sowing. Of course we don't
roll in a wet season.
This is all the culture and work which
buckwheat require. A few grateful
showers in August and September will
make it a success; in dry seasons it will
be a failure like every thing else.
The harvest of the buckwheat is the
thing which must be done most tender
ly, most patiently, carefully. It shells
out so very easily that we don't need to
thresh buckwheat at all, when we have
cut it with a cradle or a scythe. The
only economical way of cutting it, we
have found to be by a light running ma
chine, a reaper with dropper attached.
Drive yeryjslowly ; it is the easiest work
the horses ever do all through the year.
Throw off small gavels, set the reel not
too low, and cut with the bar raised
shout six inches, never lower. The in-
.tercepting finger under the reel, which
holds the wheat, when jthe dropper is
down and throwing off a gavel, we take
off for cutting buckwheat ; it is only in
the way. Two men follow the machine
(each one to take half a round), and very
carefully, tenderly, lift the gavels out of
the way of the machine, set them up in
small stooks, spreading out the butt
ends, and tucking the top in with a
lighj $wis.t. These stooks are to cure
and dry f n the field.

The profits from a buckwheat crop in
good seasons are very respectable. A

Preservation of Forests.
The holy horror with which most
Europeans contemplate the reckless de
struction of American forests would be
sadly aggravated by p. sight of the great
fires which have devastated the forests,
the villages and the farms of many por
tions of New York and Pennsylvania
during the past fortnight. But forest
fires like these are not very much more
unfamiliar phenomena in many portions
of the United States and especially in
portions of the Northwest, where violent
winds are frequent than are ordinary
summer rains. Itie origin of tnem is
generally traceable to accident, as acci
dents go in this country ; but it is acci
dent which has its roots in the deplora
ble tradition mutely handed down from
the early days of American history that
forests are the foes of civilization, not
requiring to he preserved or rationally
used, but rather, like those other aborig
inal tenants of the continent, the Indians,
inviting destruction at the hands of the
white man. And they have been most
vigorously and wantonly destroyed by
the white man. Fires carelessly or wil
fully kindled in the woods have from
time to time swept down whole forests of
timber whose present or prospective mar
ket value far the use of the carpenter and
the ship builder was great, whose value
as moderators of climate and as aids to
agriculture were almost incalculable.
Other forests equally worthy of preser
vation have, with almost equal wanton
ness, been cut down to rot upon the
ground, or to be sent through the saw
mills by people whose only interest in
forests and forestry has been to make
the largest possible profit by converting
a tract of growing timber into market
In several of of the far Western States,
where forest fires and the ax of the lum
berman and of the railroad-builder have
made vUible inroads upon the forest,
a regular system of tree planting has
been instituted, which promises not only
to restore destroyed forests wherever it is
necessary to restore them, but in time
possibly to rear forests on the treeless
plains which can be reclaimed to the uses
of man -in no other way. It has been
nintea and oof without reason, as is
shown by the floods in treeless portions
of New England above alluded to, that
plantations of trees made in the treeless
counties of the head waters of the Bed,
Arkansas, Platte and Missouri Rivers,
would prevent the disastrous inunda
which are frequent along the Lower Val
ley of the Mississippi. The suggestion
is one which Government engineers and
other persons who from time to time ap
ply jhemselves to the problem of pre
venting ;theso calamaties might profita
bly take into consideration. But what
ever may. or may not be the beneficent
results which would spring from the in
troduction of an intelligent system of
forestry into the United States, it is. al
ready evident that three tbjc need to
be done to convert the present abase of
our forests into the rational use of them.
First, the cutting of timber should be
done with discretion, leaving a due pro
portion of timber to farm lands distribu
ted throughout the agricultural districts,
and in cutting trees forlumberonly well-
grown trees should be selected, leaving
the young trees to grow, and.thus getting
a good yield from the forest without de
stroying it; second, wherever there is
already a sufficiency of cleared land a
tree should be planted for every tree
that is cut down ; and third, to prevent
not only the useless deuundattou of for
est lands but also such wholesale destruc
tion of other property as recently oc
curred in Pennsylvania, there is eminent
Ineedofstaturatory or proprietory regu
lations forbidding the building of fires
fa dry forests and requiring the woods to
be kept well cleaned of brush, dry leaves,
etc., in the vicinity of all houses, mills
and roads where fire may be regularly or
casually used. A rural population ?hich
has ever suffered from a sweeping forest
re ought surely to lend a ready acquies
cence and assistance in enforcing such
regulations. .Frani Letlie't llluttraled
Tke Fkilosophy of kaig.
There&eeafew general principles in
regard to the rainfall on the earth, that
may be interesting to farmers, and may
afford them a grain of comfort. A very
liberal provision has been made that
what we call the dry land should be well
watered. Three-fourths of the surface of
the earth is a great reservoir of moisture
Evaporation of the surface is constantly
going on. The atmosphere absorbs, and
the winds carry this vast accumulation
of moisture to the dry land.
The absorbing power of the atmosphere
depends on its temperature. The warm
er it is the more moisture it will hold,
till it reaches the point of saturation, ot
dew point. Now if warm, noisl air is
cooled, the surplus water resolves itself
into drops and falls to the earth in the
form of dew. Now Mr. Douglas was
wont, to say "Here is a great principle,
that we may well bear in mind." High
mountain ranges, being usually covered
with snow, are condensers of moisture on
a grand scale. This is why no rain
reaches saintly Brigham's locality. It is
all condensed by the Siera Nevada Moun
tains, and falls on the Pacific slope. All
forms of moisture, rain, snow, fog dew,
etc., down to the sweating pitcher on our
table, are all manifestations of this same
I may add, that the annual fall of rain
on the earth is very uniform, and that we
suffer not so much for the want of mois
ture as from an unequal distribution.
Evaporation is greatest within the trop
ics, on account of the greater heat; and
greater in the southern hemishere than
in the northern, because of the larger pro
portions of water south of the equator
than north of it; but the currents of air
which carry moisture north and south,
cross each other near the equator, giving
us the greater evaporation of the south
ern hemisphere, consequently the larger
rainfall by four inches. New England
Centennial freminm for Grain i the
At a meeting of the State Board of
Centennial Managers, held at the loom
of the board pn the 18th and 19th ult.,
the following resolution was unani
mously adopted :
Resolved, That the Secretary be direc
ted to offer two premiums, one for fifty
and one for twenty-five dollars respec
tively, for the best and second best dis
play of grain and grasses in the stalk,
under such rules and regulations as the
Secretary may adopt.
In pursuance of the foregoing, the fol
lowing premiums are offered, subject to
the regulations and conditions accompa
nying the same :
For the best display of cereals and
grasses in the State, to include as far as
practicable wheat, rye, oats, millet, Hun-
garion, timothy, clover and flax, $50;
second best, $25.
Entries can be made by addressing the
Secretary at Topeka, on or before July
1, 1875, who will furnish to the appli
cant entry tags in duplicate, the "origin
al" to be retained by the applicant, and
the "duplicate" to be attached to the ar
ticle when forwarded for exhibition.
Express and freight charges incurred
in sending samples directly to the Board
at Topeka, will be paid by the Board.
Samples must be forwarded on or be
fore July 15, 1875, at which time entry
books will be closed.
No entry fee will be charged.
An awarding committee, consisting ot
fire persons, will be selected by the Board
with great care, from different parts of
The examination and award will be
made at the room of the Board in the
Capitol building, Topeka, on the 20th
day of July, 1875.
The name of each exhibitor, that of
the grower ordonor, and locality grown,
will be carefully preserved and proper
credit given to each sample, both at
Philadelphia and in a permanent record
to be made of the same.
1. Each entry must include not less
than six varieties of the grains and grass
es named, and be selected with care, so
that each one will be as uniform as pos
sible. 2. Samples intended for exhibition
must be pulled, and the roots retained on
3. Each lot of the respective varieties
to be entered, must weigh no less than
the following: Samples of wheat, rye,
barley, oats and millet, ten pounds each :
timothy seven pounds, and clover and
flax three pounds each.
4. Botb'giains and grasses are better
to be wilted ja the aun .and then cured
in the shade. They should be entirely
free Irom must, smut, rust or noxious
insects, and should not be exposed to raip
or dew for a moment after having beea
9. Each kiad of graja should be tied
with cords in not less than fiv.e places in
auca a manner as to protect both stalks
and leaves from injury, and then after
attaching the duplicate .entry card, care
fully packed in boxes and directed "To
the Board of Centennial Managers, To-
peka, Kansas. Samples of grain."
7. Each sample to be accompanied by
a tag, giving name of exhibitor, by whojm,
and the locality where grown.
The Seerarf will furnish blank ap
plications for entry labels, to be placed
on packages to be sent to the room of the
Board for exhibition, and entry tags to
be placed on each sample.
Other things being equal, the award
will bo made to the largest collection ;
but real merit will have the preference,
whether it be a large or email collection.
The object of makjpg this collection is
to make a creditable showing f .the
agricultural products of the State at the
great international exhibition, to be
held at Philadelphia from May the 10th
to November 10th, 1876, under the au
spices of the .United States Centennial
The exhibition being open to the whole
world, and Kansas being emphatically
an agricultural State, it is of the first
importance that the exhibition of grains
be a creditable one.
The Board confidentially looks to all
citizens for co-operation inthe premises.
It will be a happy and important event
in the history of the county that shall be
able to carry off the foregoing premiums,
and thus get a world-wide reputation of
the Centennial Exhibition for producing
the best collection of (Trains and grasses
which were produced p the State in
As everything must be jn place before
another crop is produced, $e sole reli
ance of the board therefore wiJJ be upon
the crop of the present year.

June 4, 18757
To the Kama Cily Journal of Commerce:
Iu reply to your inquiry regarding
grasshoppers, I am happy to inform you
that as yet we have not been visited by
any. I have just, returned from Denver,
where they were committing such rav
ages amongst the crops th&t the farmers
were forced to re-plow and sow their
land. On my way home from Denver
to Victoria, a distance of four hundred
miles, I did not discover any appearance
of the hoppers whatever, the general
opinion being that last year they did
not stay long enough in our locality to
deposit their eggs. We are therefore
more fortunate than those living in the
eastern and southern portions of the
State who, I observe from the papers, are
suffering badly. Our crops look so well
that I was induced to forward to you,
addressed to Mr. Oakes care, a box con
taining samples of the various kinds of
crops being raised at Victoria this year.
You will notice that the alfalfa and oats
(sown together) belonging to Mr. F. W.
Ounther are well advanced for the first
of June, whilst the corn, peas and barley
raised by the Hon. W. C. Maxwell, and
the rye (last year's) alfalfa and fall wheat
raised by tnyself can compare very favor
ably with anything I have seen either in
Colorado or Kansas this season. The
other crops are equally satisfactory, and
(re both from insects and grasshoppers.
I am glad also at being able to supply
you with quite a favorable report of the
successful wintering of my stock. Not
withstanding the severity of the past
winter, my sheep and cattle have win
tered well, with a comparatively small
loss. The steers and wethers are in a
prime condition and ready for market
The crop ot lambs raised from five thou
sand Mexican graded ewes, has been
about ninety-nine per cent, and in ap
pearance they so resemble full-blooded
stock that none but those acquainted
could detect the difference.
Notwithstanding the burning of the
nrairie by fire for about one hundred
miles the first season, and the total de
struction of our crops the last one, by
grasshoppers, I have greater confidence
than ever in the great natural resources
of Kansas for economical and successful
raising of stock. And if settlers would
turn their attention mere to this than
to the cultivation of the soil solely, I
have no hesitation in stating that parties
even of moderate means could make a
comfortable and fine livelihood.
A Bran Bed for Burns. The Sani
tarian says that in cases of bad scalds of
children, in which a large part of the
body is involved, it knows of no dressing
so good as a bran bed ; that is a bed of
bran in which the patient may lie, and
be covered with a thick investment of
the same. This dressing has the advan
tage of not requiring change, for each
day as the moist particles fall off they
oan be replaced with fresh bran, without
disturbing the patient. One of the se
verest cases of scald recovered by this
treatment. A great deal of barm is done
to patients by frequent dressings, and
any method that obviates this k Boat
desirable. Patients frequently are ex

Dear Sir We have good reason for regarding

We feel assured that it has been the means of
saving our son's lire. He Is now seventeen years
of age; for the last two years he has suffered from
necrosis of his leg, caused by scrofulous affection
and was so far reduced that nearly all who saw
him thought his recovery impossible. A council
of able physicians could give us but the faintest
hope of his ever rallying; two of the number de
claring that he was beyond the reach of human
remedies, that even amputation could not save
him, as he bad not vigor enough to endure toe
operation. Just then we commenced giving him
