As this is the time of year when farm
ers are more or less picking corn and
reaping the results of good, bad, or in
different culture, it U a proper time to
sum up the experience of the season.
First, letua see if we have all learned to
plant the kind of corn suitable to the lati
tude we live in ; second, to raise as large
a kind of corn as will mature in ordinary
seasons, as it is evident to practical raisers
of corn that a kind of coru that will ripen
six weeks or more before the usual time
of frost does not turn out as many bush
els per acre as a kind that is longer grow
ing, all things else being equal. Then as
to the shape of the ears, whether they are
long or short, large or small in diameter,
is not of as much importance as whether
there is a large cob and little corn or a
small cob and long grains of corn. It is
the corn we are alter and not cobs, and
then we want corn with small butts that
will break off easily when we husk and
will hang down when grown so as to pro
tect against wet. Large butts usually
stand upright and thus catch and bold
As to saving seed. All know or ought
to, that all the secret there is in having
seed corn so that all the grains will grow,
is to pick it in time to have it dry before
it freezes, eo that it does not Bour before
In preparing the ground and subse
quent working no rigid rules can be laid
down in detail on account of the differ
ence of soils and the difference of seasons
sometimes very wet, sometimes very
dry. A kind of treatment that would be
perfection in a dry season would be totally
unfit in a wet season. For instance, sup
pose I should conclude to drill rows only
oneway. Now if it is dry and hot or
light showers about the time it is from
four inches to a foot in height we can
keep perfectly clean in the rows with the
harrow, but suppose on the other hand at
that time it should be very wet, as it fre
quently is, we would be swamped and
have a continuous row of weeds and corn
with no remedy but the hoe. Therefore
in preparing the ground and subsequent
working there is ample room for all the
knowledge, tdtill and common sense of
In plowing if you have a naturally deep
hoil like a river bottom, you cannot plow
too deep in the Fall, whereas if it was an
upland farm with a thin soil, very deep
plowing either Fall or Spring would be
the ruin of the crop for that year. So
common sense would say, plow deep, ac
cording to the depth ot your soil, but at
any rate do not plow so deep as to turn
your soil wrong side up, even if you have
manure enough to enrich the subsoil
thrown up. Plow in Fall where you can,
especially if sod ; if not in the Fall then
plow as early as you can in the Spring,
and prepare ground to plant the first good
corn weather in May.
Most of corn raisers now plant in jows
both ways so that we can keep corn clean
if it is a wet season without hoeing, and
the general preference is to plant thin in
preference to thick planting; that is two
or three kernels are preferable to four or
more. And now comes the very im
portant first working depends in good
measure whether you have a clean piece
ol corn or not. Let care be taken to work
close to the row as possible even if you
cover up a blade occasionally, let the
loose dirt lap in the row, and if this is
done carefully the subsequent work will
be comparatively easy. If this first work
ing is poorly done it can sometimes be
remedied somewhat, if the weather is dry
and there are not too many stalks, by
cross dragging with a harrow even if the
corn is ten inches high. It is always well
to do you second corn plowing as soon as
you can, while the weeds are in embryo as
the whole secret of killing weeds is to siir
the ground before the weeds are up. If
your work has been well done you ought
not to have a weed in sight. The re
mainder of the work will be according to
weather; but plow deep and often while
the corn is small. The last working
should be as late as can be and not break
down too much corn.
One great advantage in the modern
style of harrowing and working corn be
fore it is up is, have the first growth of
weeds all killed before they make their
appearance. C. B. in Prairie Farmer.
More Profit with Less Labor.
N. C. Farmer.
Farmers should study to make the most
possible with the least labor. To do this
the number of acres usually plauted in
corn, cotton and tobacco should be great
ly lessened, but their fertility increased,
while the acreage and fertility of the land
sown in small grain, greatly increased.
Lessen the fencing by making suitable
pasturage for all stock and doing away
wilh the expensive plan of fencing the
crops. Utilize dead timber, leaves, de
posits of rich earth, ashes, old beds of
charcoal, etc. Set out more fruit trees of
all kinds and best varieties; manure,
prune, and cultivate them well. Fruit
growing is now very profitable and must
increase every year. Besides the use of
fruit for the family and sale therefrom,
they go a great way towards feeding all
kind of stock and poultry. If farmers
will raise more small grain, hay, fruit,
stock, poultry, vegetables, bees and less
cotton, and tobacco, use more improved
machinery, make and apply more com
post, read and study during leisure hours,
experiment and compare notes, reject old
fogy idea, adopt new and better ones,
they may dispense with much hired labor,
live easier and accumulate faster than by
cutting down timbered lands to be plowed
up and down the hills and washed off to
make those crops requiring so much hard
labor. J-o. F. Foard.

SiiEBr. No stock requires more careful
attention than sheep. If not well fed they
suffer, and if too well fed they become dain
ty and lose appetite. Perfect regularity
should be observed in feeding, and then
they will not neglect coarse food while
waiting for their grain. A system should
be adopted and adhered to rigidly : Half
a pint of grain daily is sufficient at pres
ent ; it is easier to increase the food than
to diminish it. Ample room and open,
airy sheds should be provided. Crowding
and heating will cause shedding of the
wool. A daily run in a dry field will be
healthful. Unless lambs are wanted for
the butcher, ewes should not be coupled
until late this months. Whenever practi
cable the lambs should come with the

Hungarian Premier, whose death occurred

Rotation of Crops.
Every one has noticed that when a
wood lot has been cut over and left to
grow up to limber again, different kinds
of tree start up from those which have
previously occupied the ground. Ihe
different tree vary in their composition
both as to their organic and inorganic ele
ments. In order that any plant may ma
ture, it must be supplied with every ele
ment that enters into its composition. It
will readily be seen that when a crop baa
been taken that requires a large amount
of potash, it may have left the soil so de
ficient in soluble potash that another good
crop of the same kiud cannot be taken off
until an available supply of this element
is furnished, either by being artificially
applied, or through the agencies of nature.
VVhile this is true, another kind into
which potash does not largely enter, may
find abundant food to develop an excel
We as farmers do not sufficiently study
the composition of our different crops, and
the elements the soil of our farms must
contain in available form for them to feed
upon in order to grow and develop into
perfect maturity. We cannot expect a
grain to grow with finely developed stalks
and perfect ears in a soil deficient in pro
per nutriment in available form. It is
folly to go on trying to grow the same
kind of crops year after year on the same
ground, if there be any better way, a way
in which we may assist mother Nature in
her exhausting and exhaustive efforts.
Poor mother Nature sometimes has a hard
time of it trying to make up deficiencies
caused by our mistakes.
Fertilizers of any kind are, though
necessary, expensive. It is better to
study to find out, first, what certain crops
require ; second, so far as possible, the
general composition of our soils. Then
try to follow a crop which exhausts one
element, by the crop we have found in
our list requiring least ot that same ele
ment for its development. And all this
while nature, in her laboratory, is at work
never idle for a moment storing the
exhausted soil anew with the virtues that
it possessed of old. We are told how
soon a worn out piece of land will renew
itself if we assist nature a little by turn
ing the soil loosely up to the dissolving
influences of the sun and rain. All those
lacking elements which have been held
prisoners in the soil will be liberated to
work in the forming of food for man.
There is no pursuit in this busy world
of ours that requires, for its successful
pursuit, more real study more scientific
research. Old farmers laugh and shake
their heads wisely at what they are
pleased to call "book-farming." Yet you
will hear these same farmers cautioning
their sons or their neighbors against some
thing which experience had taught them
was not well tor them to do. You see
they bad read it rn the book of nature,
but if it were to be set down in a paper or
a book, in good language and accurate
figurings, they would sneer at it as "book
farming," and never think of heeding its
All things we learn from a really valu
able book on agriculture or chemistry are,
or ought to be, supplemented by actual
experiment experiment as actual and
practical as the old farmer himself, and,
since those who have tried these experi
ments with all their costly attending
work, have been kind enough to give us,
in plain language, the results of their
labor, we surely ought to have sense
enough to profit by their failures or suc
cesses. We must not follow blindly the
rule which worked well on some farm in
an adjoining county or State, but adapt its
teachings to our own surroundings, and
the requirements of our own soil.
If your neighbor, whose soil is the same
as your, has made a certain rotation of
crops a success, why you are so much the
belter for his having told you about it,
and can set about your own rotation with
out the feeling that it is only experimental
and may be a failure. Glean help from
whatever source you can find even the
smallest grain of information. Only sift
it with the utmost care from the chaff and
tares before you plant it for use in your
memory. We are told that one of the
greatest factors in the strangely success
ful career of our late lamented President,
was his keen faculty of searching out any
and all kinds of information from all sorts
of people and storing it up for future use.
No person can afford to work blindly, and
least of all . should we, as farmers, work
carelessly and ignorantly.
In regard to what system of rotation
shall be employed. In the first place the
land should be broken up, as a rule, while
it is producing a good crop of hay and not
left till the grass is all run out. This may
be planted to corn, to be succeeded by
some grain crop and stocked down to
grass to run two or three years, to be
again plowed up and the same round gone
over again. We do not wish to advocate
any particular system, but do urge that
farmers make this a study and adopt some
plan, such as the kind of soil and the ex
ternal surroundings seem to justify. If
afraid to go into it largely at first, take a
few acres and lay out plans for the next
four or five years, or twice that, if you
please, in order to get twice round, and
see what will come of it. At present, we
believe that both corn and clover may
enter largely into a well arranged plan on
most farms. Vermont Farmer.
Warts on Horses.
Inquiries are made for a cure for warts
of different kinds on horses, mules, and
cattle. Many remedies are prescribed
many barbarous and cruel to the animal.
Anoint the wart three times with clean,
fresh hog's lard, about t wo days between
times. We have had wartaon horses
bleeding warts of large size, rattling
warts, and seed warts to the number of
more than one hundred on one horse's
head; we have never been able to find the
warts after the third application of the
land. We have sent this prescription to
several agricultural papers, hoping that it
would be of some use to farmers, but they all
seem slow to believe, perhaps because the
remedy is at hand and costs nothing. We
may say that for cuts, brnises, galls, etc.,
the application of fresh lard, either for
man or beast, is worth more than any pat
ent liniments in use. It will remove pain
instantly and does not irritate raw flesh as
all liniments do. Ex.

New Process for Washing Linen.
An English magazine says: "In Ger
many and Belgium a substitute has lately
been introduced for soda in the laundry,
which while it has all the detersive quali
ties of soda, does no injury to the linen.
Two pounds of soap are dissolved in about
five gallons of water as hot as the hand
can bear. To this are added one table
spoonful of oil of turpentine and three of
liquid ammoniit. The mixture ie then well
stirred, and in it the clothes are , steeped
for three hours, the washtub being cover
ed up as carefully as possible. Next, the
clothes are washed, rinsed and blued as
usual. The mixture will serve a second
time, only it must be reheated one-half
spoonful of oil of turpentine and one and
one-half of ammonia added to it. The
process economizes time labor and fuel.
The clothes are not injured because the
ammonia evaporates very quickly; and as
for the smell of the turpentine, that disap
pears in the drying.
