i Plowing in Autumn. -
The advantages resulting; Irom au au
tuma fallow aremauy, but the first step
in this important work is to know what
lands should be plowed in autumn and
which let alone. We would say, then,
that all light, sandy fields had better re
main untouched till planting time in
spring. - The action of the frost on such
land in winter, if plowed, would be but
slightly if at all beneficial, and the injury
that is risked in other respects far . more
than counterbalances all the advantage.
For instance, if the land is rolling, plow
ing it now would but increase the washing
ot hillsides and wasting of the strength of
the soil on some farms a matter of very
great moment; and, again, though the field
were perfectly level, yet, if of a very light
character, plowed now, it is exposed to
the driving winds that blow all winter,
and is liable to be drifted and shifted in a
manner often quite injurious to the farm.
The vegetation now upon the field will
protect the soil, it remains unplowed, and
prevent the denudation that would be
caused in the other case. It is best, there
fore, to allow the sandy land to remain un
plowed all winter.
But all stiff, clayey lands, and most
medium soils, are invariably benefitted by
being well broken up in autumn, in order
to expose them to the disintegrating and
refining power of frost, thaw and rain.
The decay of vegetable matter, also, with
in the soil is a matter of the greatest value
in this case, aiding to pulverize and mel
low the ground in a way very beneficial.
We would say, then, by all means plow
such Und over this fall, and reap the ad
vantages sure to result therefrom. In this
way, .whatever vegetable matter there
may be npon the land will have time to
decompose, and will be a fine rich manure
by spring, and this alone, inasmuch as it
serves two very important ends, will far
more than pay all the cost and trouble of
the extra work. These ends are the ad
dition of valuable plant food to the soil,
and the mellowing up of the same arising
from the decay of the vegetable matter.
If the plowing is not done till spring, there
is no time for this, and these advantages
are lost, the vegetation .; does not have
time to decay, there is nothing added to
the fertility of the land, and the weeds and
grass turned in are only . in the way of
the plow and hoe all summer.
Again lands of a clayey texture are
greatly benefitted from exposure to the
alternate freezing and thawing of winter.
By it a great deal of the coarse, inert ma
terial is broken up and put in a shape in
which the dews and rains can convey it to
plants as food. And there are doubtless
many chemical changes that take place in
soils from freezing, not now known or un
derstood which are of vast importance in
agriculture. Nature's analyst works on a
grand scale and without mistakes, frost is
her solvent agent, worth more than an
equal amount of gold dust to the farmer.
He is a wise cultivator who avails himself
of its use to the greatest extent he can.
If stiff land is not plowed before spring
the frost has no chance to act on the soil,
the land is neither so fine nor so mellow
as in the other case, and the land tilled to
a disadvantage all summer. By all means
plow your next year's arable land before
Insects in Orchard and Garden.
Ciiapki. Hill, N. C, Oct. 4, 1881.
A gentleman -iwrites us: "I enclose a
circular recently issued by 'Prof. Com
stock.of Cornell University. I request
that you publish it, as it relates to a mat
ter ot great importance j to Tur people.
While Prof. Comstock will investigate
specially the insects injurious' to fruit and
vegetables- in New York, still his report
will include many of such insects as are
found with us, and will be of value doubt
less to our truck farmers and fruit raisers."
The following is the item referred to:
Having been engaged by. the United
States Commissioner of Agriculture to
make an investigation of the insects in
festing fruit and garden vegetables in
New York and New England, I earnestly
solicit from pomologists, horticulturists
and others, specimens of such insects,
notes Upon their habits, and results of ef
forts to prevent their ravages.
It is my purpose to prepare a report in
which will be given an account of the life
history of each of the insects in question,
together with suggestions as to the best
way of protecting plants from them.
It is hoped that this work will supply a
want greatly felt by gardeners and fruit
growers, ana I trust that I shall have the
co-operation of these classes it the pre
paration of it. ; Due eredit: will. be, given
when the work is published, to those who
have rendered 'assistance. I append di
rections for sending specimens :
Insects can be sent by mail, but should
not be inclosed in a letter. If dead they
should be packed in cotton or paper and
inclosed in a etoutibox; if alive, they
should be placed in a tight tin or wooden
boi, along. with a supply of their appro
priate food. Air-holes in the box are not
needed. Each paekage should be marked
with the name of the sender.
The rate of postage on matter of this
mna is one ceni per ounce.

ploughing, in lieu of shallow, should never
be done immediately before planting in
the snrinff of the vear for the reason, that

all of the earth brought up from beneath
former ploughings is sterile, dead, and
must have time for the elements of heat
and cold, rain and snow, &c., to act on it
to give it life. Subsoiling will obviate
this difficulty, but deep and thorough
spring months if there is any soil before
planting is preferable. bfeorge Watt, n
Economy in Feeding Poultry.
No business can be very profitable un
less strict economy prevails in its manage
ment. 1 his remark is as true of little
things as of great, and applies to the
keeping and feeding of poultry with es
pecial force. None of the minor indus
tries are more profitable when rightly con
ducted, yet few are oftener a source of ex
pense and annoyance, because of the lack
of the right sort of attention.
In feeding poultry two things must be
kept steadily in view, namely, feeding for
the table and feeding for eggs. In the
country feeding for eggs is generally the
leading object. For this purpose the best
food, undoubtedly, is oats, if hens will
not lay on a regular and liberal feed of
oats, they will not lay at all, and had bet
ter be killed. To help along the oats,
suitable scraps from the kitchen are very
useful, But here good sense must pre
vail. Bread crusts and bones are not the
sort of scraps for poultry. Cooked vege
tables and cold bread mashed fine, meat
skins and scraps cut into small pieces, and
such things are the sort, for hens Pure
water, clean roosting places, a good range,
and plenty of gravel are essential.
But if you want to fatten for the table
or market, sound corn is the proper food.
llns should be fed twice a day , and no
more than will be consumed at once.
Meat scraps are also good in this case;
also chopped onions, parsley, cabbage,
fcc, to give the flesh better flavor. Hens
having the unlimited run of the farm are
seldom very profitable. They should have
their own proper range and be confined
to that. Daily care and oversight are
Nearly all domestic animals get sick
from improper and injudicious feedings or
else from entire neglect ot sanitary and
hygienic measures. This is especially true
of hogs at this season. The dreadful "hog
cholera" is more prevalent at this season
than during any other time of the year;
and this is doubtless owing to the absence
of proper dietry and medication. The ani
mal's digestive functions get out of order,
tever sets in and prostration if not death
ensues. Acidity is often the predisposing
cause ot the complaint. Unripe fruits and
other vegetable matter in excessive quan-

tinea, orings it on. v nat tne animal
needs is more variety and a mixture of
cooked food, with plenty of salt. Put
plenty of red per per and a handfuliof
cooking soda in every pot full of cooked
feed.; . Charcoal dust, mixed up with meal
or bran, will speedily, correct acidity and
cure the scours. But if the latter is bad a
little - laudanum had better- be added.
Give heavy and frequent doses of sulphur
to prevent vermin and inprove the general
health. Uopperas is often beneficial, and
will clear the intestinal channel of worms.
Give salt frequently. The system needs
it, and it acts as a dissolvent on the food,
especially acorns, nuts peas, fcc. Change
beds frequently, and remove sick animals
from the well as soon as symptoms aro
manifested. Do not give them time to
contaminate the rest. Feed old corn at
least once a week, if you have itj
