; "r Rain and Moisture. A
Water is necessary to all animal and
vegetable life. No seed starts without
and no plant grows without moisture.
The period of vitality of seeds is yet a
wide field for scientific experiment, but
certainly moisture has much to do with
the vitality as well as growth of seeds.
Moisture is applied to plants in these
ways, rain, dew, evaporation from the soil,
and irrigation. It is conceded that fre
quent light rains are the most promotive
of plant growth. ;
Dew is but restricted rainfall. The
moisture ascending from the soil raised by
the sunbeams, is precipitated at night,
when the air is free from solar heat, and
precipitated upon plants. Dews are
heavier in the valleys - than on the hills,
because there is more moisture below. As
moisture or evaporating water absorbs
heat and produces cold, so for the same
cause frosts are more common and more
severe in the low lands than on the moun
tain tops. For this reason, peaches and
other early blooming trees and shrubs
should be placed upon high grounds.
Evaporation from the soil is the main
support of plants. The roots of plants
must not only have water, but air also;
ever covered with water they perish;
hence the necessity of deep plowing and
drainage. Again, loose, pulverized soil,
by capillary attraction, holds more water
than hard, solid soil; neither do the roots
of plants enter welt intovhard ground.
Hence deep ploughing and frequent
stirring of the soil are the best for plants.
I am now eating early Mexican sweet
corn that has hardly had a rain- upon it
since it was planted, lne ground was
finely ploughed, and during all the
drought it was cultivated with the hoe
without regard to weeds. Watermelon
vines, grass and all other vegetation are
all dead around but the corn is green as
ever. Dew not only descends from the
near air, bat is formed by contact with
the cooling soil. As the moisture ascends
from below it reaches the cold surface,
and is condensed on and within the finely
pulverized soil. This is all proven by
placing boards over early beans; the
radiation of the heat is prevented, being
returned by the board, and frost is pre
vented, when outside of the board the
beans are bitten.
Irrigation, to be profitable, must be con
tinued: during all dry seasons. When
flower vases are watered daily, they will
keep up the plants, but a single watering
of outside plants sets up an immediate
growth of succulent roots and stems ; and
if the watering is not continued, the
plants perish at once. jNatun by the
slow process of subterranean evaporation,
continually and gradually decreasing,
carries the plant in a half dormant state
through the drought. So it is better not
to water at all than to water freely and
then suddenly cease. C. M. Clay in
Southern Planter and Farmer.
The above article was printed in the
Southern Planter and Farmer last Sum
mer, but as it contains some valuable in
formation we publish it for the benefit of
our readers. Ed.
I see harvested on one farm a moderate
crop of corn and potatoes; just across the
fence the yield is only about half as much,
and just beyond it is a total failure. The
land has every appearance ol being equal
ly fertile naturally. All have suffered
from the drought, but not all alike. Here
are certainly losses due to thoughtless
ness and want of knowledge. It is sup
posable that each of these parties did
nearly as well as their knowledge, train
ing and energy permitted, yet the results
are widely different, caused by the differ
ent degree of these elements possessed by
each. If this be so, then to avoid the
losses of the less successful farmer, bis
knowledge and land must approximate to
wards those of the more successful one.
I have cited what I consider preventable
losses of only two men, but there are
thousands of just such men, and tens of
thousands of just such cases,' in every
State. Who is to energize and instruct
them? Who is to train and educate the
12,000,000 youth that now reside on the
farm, so that such losses may not occur in
the future? Who is to keep honored
fathers abreast of the times who were
born in the beginning of the century, with
limited opportunities for acquiring knowl
edge, and are hardly able to keep pace in
their growth unassisted -with , the im
provements wrought by machinery, steam
and chemistry? Twenty millious of men,
women and children on ' the farm, all to a
greater or less degree . desiring to be
taught how to avoid the preventable losses
and failures ! Who is to do it ? How is
it to be done ?
The Price of Corn.
When it was known that both the wheat
and corn crops were a failure, as compared
with last year, high prices,' scarcity with
its consequent suffering,7 were freely pre
dicted. A bad corn year is notoriously
the severest strain on the country, and the
failure of this one crop causes more suffer
ing than any half a dozen others. The
mistake made by these "prophets of evil"
was in estimating by the crop of 1880-81,
which was exceptionally large. A large
portion of our surplus grain was sent to
Europe last year. Fortunately the Euro
pean crops this season are good, so that
we will have nearly as much grain left for
home consumption as in 1881. To this con
clusion dealers have come at last. There
was an increase in the price of grain and
its products of from 10 to 15 per cent,
early in the season, but there has been no
advance since, nor if there any probability
of it. This increase will nearly represent
the advance in the cost of living over last
season ; and, while prices may be a little
higher, it is not likely that there will be
any Buffering, y f ; ; i j ' t( )
Don't let the Cows Go Dry.
A long even season of milk is absolutely
necessary to be a. profitable one. There
is nothing that the dairyman needs more
exhortation , upon than that of giving a
full ration to his herd at all . times during
the milking season.
There is less excuse for feeding a good
milch cow stingily than any other . farm
animal. She does not, a9k any credit;
she makes prompt daily payment; and
her product is a cash article. If he has
not the food at hand, prudence and' good
judgment, as well as humanity, requires
him to furnish her full rations at all times,
without regard to a favorable or an un
favorable season. k We. always counsel
dairymen to make an earnest effort to pro
duce all the food for their herds upon their
own farmabttt.the firatiiriucinla of nrn.

Keeping the Buildings and Fences in
Iu traveling about the country, one is
often at a loss to account for the slovenly
appearance of many farmers' homes. The
soil is. evidently productive and well
tilled ; the growing crops show that. , But
there is, in spite of this thriftinees, an air
of neglect given the whole place by the
lack of order and neatness to be seen
about the house and barn. It may be that
the house needs a fresh coat of paint.
Perhaps it has never been painted at all,
and the weather-stained boards stare at
the p'asser-by, and seem complaining of
the treatment of their owner. PerhapB
the gate is off its hinges, the fences broken
down, or fortified against intrusion in
weak spots by unsightly poles. The barn
door may swing by one hinge, the shed
may have lost part of its boards. One or
all of these things may conspire to give
the plaoe an air of dilapidation and lack
of thrift which a little labor and expense
would entirely do away with. The man
who has an ambition to raise good crops
ought to have an ambition to keep his
farm buildings and his fences in good
order. Neatly kept fences and buildings
add fifty per cent to the looks ol a place,
to say nothing of the additional value
tbey give it, in dollars and cents. That
the condition of the buildings and fences
on a farm have a great deal to do with
the impression of value which it makes on
visitors is proved by a case which came
under my observation. A man came into
our neighborhood to purchase a farm.
There were two for sale. These farms
were of about equal value so far as quality
of soil was concerned, and were of the
same size. One was owned by a man
who worked his fields well and raised fine
crops, but he paid little attention to the
condition of his buildings and his fences.
His house needed a fresh coat of paint,
His barn looked out at the elbows. His
fences were badly in need of repair. The
impression which one received, in riding
by was, that this place was not a pros
perous one. True the fields showed good
crops, but the impression of unthriftiness
remained. The other farm belonged to a
man who was careful to see that whenever
a fence needed repair, that repair was
made. His house was kept well painted.
There were no loose and flapping boards
on barns or sheds. Everything had a
neat and tidy look. The consequence
was, that after looking the two places
over carefully, the man bought this farm
and gave considerably more for it, than he
could have got the other for. It was more
fertile, it had hardly the same advantages
of location, it was no larger, but every
thing about it was in good condition and
it conveyed to him, as to others, an idea
of this fitness and prosperity, and this at
tention to little things brought to its
former owner a snug little sum of money,
which represented the difference in value
between the farm whose houses and fences
are properly cared for and the farm on
which but little attention is given to such
The saving of money and labor by at
tending to all repairs when they are first
found to be needed is considerable. If
your house needs painting, one coat may
do the work now which two coats will not
do by and by. If a fence board is loose,
one nail driven in to-day will fasten it ; if
you wait till' to-morrow it may require
three. It is the wisest kind of economy
to attend to these matters promptly. If
this attention is given, the place never
gets that seedy and run-down look which
characterizes so many farmers' homes.
It is much easier, as well as cheaper, to
keep a place in repair than to wait until
a general dilapidation takes possession of
everything, for then everything has to be
re-made, iu one sense, and any one who
has ever tried to rejuvenate neglected
buildings knows just what the bother and
vexation of doing it is. Well-kept build
ings and fences add wonderfully to the
attractive appearance of our farms, and
not only appearance, but definite value
in dollars and cents. Farmer? Review.
Potatoes in California.
A California iuventor has made a ma
chine for drying and pressing potatoes so
that they will keep for years, yet preserve
their natural flavor. No chemicals are
used in the operation of curing, everthing
being done by a simple machine capable
of pressing six hundred bushels of pota
toes in twenty-four hours, lbe machine
not only presses the potatoes, but lays
them on a tray in a conoave form with
the hollow side down. After the pressure
they are put in a drying apparatus where
they remain for hours; then they are
ground into coarse meal resembling
cracked rice. The first shipment of these
preserved potatoes to Liverpool last year
brought a large profit. The average
price of potatoes in San Francisco is about
25 cents per bushel. Dried they brought
iu England forty-five shillings a hundred
weight, or at the rate of one dollar and a
half a bushel for green potatoes. This
year preparations are being made for dry
ing and shipping large quantities. It is
said that there are three hundred thousand
acres of uncultivated land on the Western
lope of the Coast Range, near San Fran
cisco, especially .adapted to potato grow.
ins. lne logs and mift irom tne ocean
supply sufficient moisture, and the soil
yields abundantly. The only problem
heretofore has been where to market the
product. Scientific American.
' .', Salt as a Fertilizer.
A correspondent contributes a few points
on the subject of salt as a fertilizer. He
says : 1 have used salt as a fertilizer for
a score of years, and with uniformly good
success, especially upon cabbages and po
tatoes. Applied at the rate of three or
four bushels to the acre on pasture land,
it gave the grass a luxuriant growth and
deep green color, at the same time ex
terminating weeds. Cattle evidently pre
ferred the grass grown on the salted por
tions of the pasture, probably because it
contained more salt. It is well knowu
that the quantity in plants varies with its
abundance-in the soil," and - seldom -does
vegetation furnish sufficient to satisfy the
demands of our domestic animals. Wheat
and other, grains do not appear to be so
much benefitted by salt except, in the
strength it gives to the stems. - Oats hav
ing a very flexible stem, and therefore in
clined to fall, are especially benefitted. .
r The following is the result of an experi
ment by Mr. Johnson, author of the
iFarmer s Encyclopedia, in. the use of salt
on potatoes : Produce per acre . without
fertilizer of any, kind, 120 bushels; ' with
twenty bushels of salt, per acrer 192 bush
els; with twenty loads of stable manure,
219 bushels; with twenty loads of manure
and twenty busheJajUi324 bushels."

Multiply the length, width and height

For example, the crib that Is twenty feet
long, four feet wide, and eight feet high,
holds 284 4-9 bushels.
Again, if your wagon bed is eleven feet
long, 3 feet wide and 17 inches deep, mul
