The following isgood advice. Thc point in
which farmers are most in fault is, that they o
vcrstock thcir farms only half feed their ani
mals, letskeleton cow-framcs drag thcmsclves
ovcr thcir prcmises and complain because
thcse dry boncs do not givc milk abundantly.
Whcrever cows are kept for the dairy, it is a
duty to keep thcm wcll. This can be donc.
Ifyou cannot kcop four well, try two; the two
well kcpt, will givc morc income than four
half starved ones. Tho goodness of the cow is
dctermined parlly by its nativc propertics
but thc food also has much, and vcry much, to
do m making her good otherwire. Keep no
morc than vou can fecd well vcry well.

EARLY WEEDING STIRRING TIIE
A grcat dcal is gaincd by carly wceding.
When wccds first start they may easily be de
stroyed, and if the land has been recently
ploughed and plantcd, it will be light and nicl
low, and thc hocing it at an carly pcriod rc
quircs but little timc, comparcd to what is nec
cssary whcn thc wccds havc becoine large
and almost formcd a sward, and thc cartli has
become compact and hard. Anothcr disad
vantage in dclaying weediug till latc, is the
hiding of tho plants by the luxuriant wceds.
In some cascs thc plants cannot bc found with
out diligent scarch, and then, pcrhaps, the
wceds cannot bc rcmovcd without radica'.ly dis
turbing the plants, which from their fragile
fonns, growmg in the shade of tall wccds can
hardly stand alonc.
Bcsides the grcat saving of labor in wced
ing early, thcrc is a great advantaje to thc
crops, for moat all plants that stand in a good
soil, frce from wccds will grow twice as fast
for stirring thc soil around thcm. Whcn there
are 110 wccds, plants will comc up, grow a lit
tle, and then rcmain almost stalionary for
wccks, whcn a little stirring ofthe oil around
them would give them a start and cause a lux
uriant growth. This is oftcn shown by part
ofa row orpicce of land being hocd while an
othcr part is lcft. So great a diirercnce i
somctimcs produccd by roerely stirrin" the
soil, that the casual obscrvcr hassupposed that
thcrc was a difierence in the manure, time of
planting, or something clsc which hc would
regard as more Important than thc merc stir
ring oftlic soil, as he would regard it.
We have an account ofa trial betwccn two
cultivators who competcd for thc grcatcr suc
cess undcr thc same cireumstanccs as to soil,
manurc, sccd, &c. Ono thought to cxccl by
hocing his lot twicc a wcck, aware of the grcat
advantagc of frcquently stirring thc soil ; but
hc was much surpriscd to find tbat ho had
bcen bcatcn, and was anxious to Icarn thc
managcmcnt ofhis conipctitor, which was his
own plan carricd to a grcatcr cxtent, for he
had hocd his lot cvcry morning.
Farmers will find'it profitable lo prcparc
thcir lands, and arrangc thcir plants so that
most of thc labor in dostroying wccds, and
stirring thcr soil, so csscntial to succcstful cul
tivation, may bc donc by animal lahor. In
this thcicwill not only bc a saving ofcx-
Ecnsc, but a greatcr profit by a large crop, for
y thc use ofa cultivator or plough bctwccn
row?, thc soil will bc stirred dccpcr than by
thc hoc, and it may be donc more frcquently
also. A good stcady horsc, in a wcll arranircd
field, in the hocing season, will do as much as
scveral mcn. Boston Cullhator.
