; Work for the Month.
Though, we : have indicated 1 Octo r as,
in oar judgment, the best time for sowing
mall grain, -Where; from any cause, it was
not done during that month; let it by to
meana be considered too late. . November
is the iiext best month for that' purpose,
and fa view, of the greaV,neceea-ty uhat
will probably be felt all over the country
for forage aud grain, next Spring and
Summer, we hope every farmer willow
enough to answer, at least, hia own i de
mand. And here we desire to impress
upon the mindaof large class' of small
farmers the importance of harrowing in
their small graiu instead of sowing and
turning under, as many do. i Most ot the
lands sown, are grassy or turfy, and, with
the very best plowing that can be done,
much of the grain thus covered. will never
appear above ground, Break up ibeland
first, ; and, then sow and harrow. Any
common mechanic, or any, farmer, can
make a harrow, and a very poor one is in-,
finitely better than to jcover with t lhe
plow. Properly put in, , the grain .will
yield . at ; least one-third ' more than the
careless , old way of covering-with turf.
Beside, the harrow leaves the land level,
smooth and in the best condition for har
vesting, whether by cradle or reaper.
Every farmer; of observation ought to
know that the nearer the soil is brought
to a level by pulverization, the v greater
will be its capacity for yield, and this fact
alone ought to be : sufficient to induce the
use of the harrow as often as practicable.
As the shortness of the cotton crop has
probably enabled most of the farmers to
harvest and market the staple', by this
time, let them ior once make use of the
opportunity, while autumn still remains to
repair and prepare for a timely , crop, next
year.' ; Be up once in your life with your
work.7 ! : : ' 'v..'-
If out of other work, attend to the . hill
side ditches, and prevent the . .winter tor
rents from washing away the banks iand
carry ing off the soil. Open up the ditches
in the lowlands sufficient for good drain
age, and clear away those unsightly . brier
and scrub patches .which, have gradually
encroached ppon some of the richest spots
on your larm. Reclaim -your possession
and assert the superiority' of industry.
The time has now. arrived, ior plowing
up sweet, potatoes. , A coulter ; may. first
be run through the rows to- cut the vines,
in which case they may be dragged with
hoe or rake to the middles and covered for.
raandre, or taken up and housed .for win
ter food for the cows, ;or, tbey . may ,;be
dragged with the plow and left in heaps
along the rows; the firt is the better
plan. A torn plow should then be used
to throw the soil from the ridges toward
the middles, leaving a narrow; ridge con
taining the tubers, which may now, easily
be drawn down with the hoe or broken
out with a shovel; running' deep enough
to avoid bruising the potatoes; these
should be taken up as soon as practicable
placed ii hanks Ot fifteen or twenty hush
els, around three or four stout stakes
driven in a circle in the center to let out
the ratified air of the bank' when finally
covered, 'with straw and, earth. Above
these 'stake is placed a cap, when the
bank ia finished, a board or piece of bark
to keep out the rain, and at the same time
to keep open the air-passage from beneath.

interesting i facts concerning , an experi

They say in their letter- to the Director-
General;,; 's, Y.-.i-W : " . .. :-i
wWe forward vouthisday a small pack
age of cotton and a plant aa specimens of
a half acre grown by us this- summer in
Delaware county, Pennsylvania. As this
is the first attempt ever made on so large
a scale, so far north planted in the open
air i which has been fruitful, ,r VVe feel
proud of our success and desire to exhibit
it at your exposition, -we doubt not it
will be ot very great interest to our douiu".
era friends who have always contended
that cotton could not be grown further
North than the 40th degree. - Now thai it
has been conclusively proven otherwise it
is our intention to plant' next year 30u
acres, and feel confident xf a success as to
the quality, quantity and prontableness. f
As a matter of interest we beg to state
the following facts as to the time of start
ing and method of growing. Our spring
being very late frost up to the 28th ot
May we were unable to plant before
then, our earth being rather ...sandy and
well fertilized, In the first month the
growth was very slow, owing to the
drouth which greatly stunted the plants,
The first bloom appeared July the: loth
From that time forward rapid progress
ollowed, so that by Sept. 10th bolls were
had.' J These, however, did not break for a
long time, not till the ;20ih:f Sept.; when
they opened very fast, and now present a
very fine appearance. ; The yield should
be about ! bale per acre; so we expect
about bale from the half acre we: have
planted. ( The sample we send you is some
of it. It was r hand-picked and ginned,
and we believe will class about good mid
dling to fair. The1 staple, body, color,
etc., yon will' notice are - excellent; ' .Not
withstanding it is "yankee cotton, it will
compare' with the general Southerrf 'cotton,
and is better than most of it that is grown
at the South, The plant we forward is to
show the average size of our plants and a
number of bolls. On the 5th of this month
we had a very heavy frost. Outof one
thousand of our plants to-day only- four
hundred plants are in! any way" affected..
The balance are rather benefitted as the
bolls were opened by it.. . , " ? .

it up to the boiling point, is the. water
would then evaporate; most of the water
will slowly fall to the bottom of the bot
tle, and the lard now melted , will rise to
the top. By glancing at the amount of
water now deposited at the bottom of the
bottle, as compared : with the i amount ot
oil or lard above it,' 5 you can easily tell
abouthdw'""mueh 'water ' thereTTs in" the'
raudulent article. Should the lard not
settle clear, nor precipitate much water, it
is an evidence that it is also adulterated
with 'alkali, which serves to combine a
part of water with the lard, making soap
of it, which does not precipitate readily
with the water. ..It will be well for the
retailers to look after the lard they pur
chase, and apply the. simple test given
above. This will , insure them and their
customers protection against this species
of fraud, though a still easier means of
protection would be to purchase only lard
of . the best brands, in which there is cq
fear of finding adulterations of any sort. '

is spinach. It isyery hardy, and before
the snow is gone it gives us an agreeable

mankind will adhere to the latter with
the idea' that it has the most nourishment.
The difference between a pound of beef
and a pound of rice, is very marked, the
latter being 100 per cent cheaper and 100
per cent more valuable to the common
laborer than the beef diet.
