Analysis of Soils.

method of testing a soil to see whether it

dull redness over a lamp or bright

away and evaporated, then weigh, and
the loss is the amount of organic matter.
This organic matter contributes very
largely to the fertility of a soil. The ex-
perience of the last few years in this sec-
too,!,n. tW tlm nandtr Kni1 with a
comparatively small percentage of clay,
are the best for a varied cultivation, for
fruits, small grain, and even for cotton.
Not only is necessity the mother of in
vention, but also of providence and thrift.
Waste not. is a good maxim, and one
which the American farmer does not gen
erally heed. He may not waste time, or
money, or valuable material, but he cer
tainly wastes magnificent opportunities.
There is an inertia in human nature that
makes us feel what we never had, we
never lost, nnd so we proceed, year in and
year out, reaping only half what oppor
tunity has sown for us.
Careless farming is the trait which a
foreigner most observes in this country.
A failure to raise all or even a small frac
tional part of what the soil is capable of
yielding is a fault of wide prevalence. If
a man by imperfect breaking, or slovenly
sowing, or insufficient weeding, raises only
half what his ground is capable of pro
ducing, how much better off is he than if
he spent half of his time in idleness? In
deed in one sense he is worse off, for per
sonal idleness may be limited to personal
consequences, whereas the unused re
sources of the country remain as a blot on
the national character and tend to pro
duce the ingrain habits of shiftlessness
and sloth. A man is seldom belter than
his surroundings. Philosophers show us
that organic nature has a wonderful apti
tude for conforming its character to that
of the environment. Hence careless hab
its are not alone vicious for the direct loss
they entail, but likewise for the positive
injury they inflict on the community, since
they are as insidious as malaria, and as
hard to eradicate as the Canada thistle.
By contrast with American farmers,
European husbandmen are models. Not
a spot of ground is wasted, not an ounce
that the ground is capable of yielding that
is not laboriously and patiently drawn
out, and not a measure of replenishing the
soil is neglected. Imagine an American
farmer planting the angles of the fields at
corners which the plow cannot reach !
But bucIi is done in Europe, and more soil
is carried from below and plastered on the
ledges or the hills to form a spot of til
lage, lhe manure heap in such countries
becomes an object of tender concern, and
women will quarrel and fight on the pub
lic road over an apronmi oi horse manure.
In answer to the question why we do not
do so here, it may be sufficient to use the
slang phrase, "We do not have to," and
this may be satisfactory while there is
plenty ol land, but those who live long
enough to grow up with the country will
discover when the latter has reached a re
spectable stature that "many a little
makes a muckle," and that trifles make
perfection, but perfection is no trifle.
Argument against the Blind Bridle.
We know not who invented this instru
nient of horse torture, but we know he
did not understand the anatomy and phy
sioiogy ot the eye ot the horse. Human
vision is binocular, that is, we see the
same object with both our eyes and so
adjust the axis of vision i that the object
appears single though seen with both
eyes. iui tue eyes ot the horse are
placed on the side of the head, and the
axis of each eye is nearly at right angles
with the longitudinal line of the body, so
that it is impossible that the same object
. . . . - . '
u.ov.uLu, nucu uy uom eyes. I
Now, by bunding the eve in the direc
tion in which it is intended, in its con
struction, that it should see, it is forced to
use an oblique vision, as if we should cover
the Iront ot our optics and be compelled
to see only by the corners of our eves.
This unnatural and constrained use of the
eye must, to a greater or less extent im
pair vision, if not entirely destrov it. The
object for' which the blind bridle is used
is not accomplished by It. A horse is
more readily frightened when he cannot
see the object of his dread than if he can
have a fair view of it. But it is surprising
10 ooserve with what tenacity men hold
on to an absurd and cruel practice when a
moment's reflection should teach them
better. Nineteen out of every twenty
horses you see in harness have blind
bridles on, and if you ask the owner to ex
plain its benefit, or why he uses it. he will
be utterly unable to give & rational an-
swer. We are not snrnrispd that Hranrrht
horses are subject to diseased eves we
wonder they are not all blind.

The Apple-Root Blight.
The apple root blight takes the form of
excrescences or warts upon the roots ot
the apple tree, both upon the large roots
and the more slender, fibrous and capilla
ry branches. They are caused by a min
ute insect, the Pemphigas Pyri, named
Mriousoma Pyri. in the Natural History
of New York, but the latter genus is now
included in thelormer. lhe parent insect
insinuates herself downward along the
side of the root, as it would appear, at
the close of autumn, and there deposits
her stock of eggs and perishes. These
eggs hatch the following spring, and the
young lice insert their beaks into the
hark of the root to extract their nourish
ment therefrom. Their punctures produce
a kind of irritation, which causes an in
creased growth of the wood, and results
in the excrescences above mentioned. As
in other cases in this family, these lice
probably continue to multiply until au
tumn, when winged individuals are devel
oped, which leave their retreat and search
out new situations in which to plant their
species. They are scarcely 4 lOOths of an
inch in length, and of a pale, dull yellow
color. The white filament proceeding
from the top of the abdomen renders their
situation visible to the naked eye as they
move. The natural winged insect is about
a quarter of an inch in length to the tips
of the closed wings; the body, legs and at-
teume are coal black, the head and upper
part ot the abdomen covered with dense
white down. The remedy recommended
is strong soap-suds, which will destroy
every insect which it reaches. Mixing
ashes with the earth thrown around the
roots when the trees are set out is also use
How to Dissolve Bones.
This is an easy matter, and no sulphuric
acid is needed either, btrong Ive from
wood ashes will do the work, and if you
have a large iron pot, boiler or similar
vessel lor boiling, you 5an have them
ready for use in a short time. Throw in
ashes and bones together till the vessel is
nearly lull, taking care to have plenty of
ashes to make the lye strong enough.
lhen nil up with water, build a fare, and
boil the ashes and bones together fur an
hour or two. Set aside and let cool. The
bones, on being taken out, will be found to
be in a soft state and readily crushed with
slight pressure. The contents of the boil
er, lye, ashen, bones, and all are now ex
cellent material lor the compost heap.
Perhaps most economical managers will
prefer however, to utilize the bones for
soap-maKing in tne nrst place, it is a
good idea, and the bones and waste lye
and other reluse trora tne soap pot carry
to the compost as before. Never throw
away a bone, but have all put away in a
sate place till enough have accumulated
for a good boil. We would stop by the
v iwv WVll, V UU1U CbVU J bl!U
roadside to pick up a bone, even were we
ten mii8 from home. They contain some

Make Use of the Leaves.
Now that the leaves of the pine and of de
cidious trees are falling, it is a good time
to collect a large supply to be stored
away in a shed or old out house or iu pens
tor use as needed through the winter.
Every garden ought to be well mulched
with them all the parsnip, onion, straw
ben7 an3 olher beds covered for protec
lion. nere staple mauure is used as a
mulch it is a good plan to mix in about
half the quantity of leaves, which makes a
milder and less stimulating covering, and
less likely to iorce plants in warm spells,
Indeed stable manure intended for the
garden next spring, would be rather bet
ter lor such purpose if mixed now with
leaves in a wet state, and allowed to fer
I raent a'l winter. The mixture would be
much better for most gatden uses. Be-
I 8e9 you WH1 want new beds in stables
and cattle sheds frequently all through
winter. Get up the leaves now and store
away ready for the purpose. Snows may
cover them in winter so that vou cannot
get them when wanted

A Trotting Steee. F. L. Haight is
interested in j steer ol alleged phenome

but Mr. Haight does not care to pay ex
actly what part, because some speculator
might get at the steer and reap a harvest.
Mr. Haight says:
"He is what you might call a remark
able animal, and was born to trot. When
he was a little calf, instead ot jumping
and gamboling like other calves, he would
set his head, and spin off in a square trot
for a quarter of a mile. This created some
comment, because he made big lime, and
he was mcouraged. lie is only three
years old now, and as gentle as a lamb,
but he can pull a sulky over a mile in four
minutes, and just get warmed up. His
name is Novelty Boy, and he is strong on
a three mile trot. He has got a big speed
Mr. Haight produced a photograph of
Novelty Boy, standing between the shafts
of a light racing sulky, ms loreiegs are
very short and his back long, but the
under part ot his body curves up, giving
him the greyhound build. He is driven
in light racing harness with a collar that
opens at the lower end. He is steered by
two runs attached to the base ol his
horns. Novelty Boy is pure white.
