co-operation in butter making, the milk
being brought within one mile of the fac
tory before setting.
Mr. Curtis —Such institutions aro being
organized in different sections of the coun
try. The system Is as good for butter as
for cheese where the milk can be got to- J
gether bandy. Milk for butter can't stand 1
jostling as it can for cheese.
Mr. Rly—l have talked with dealers
who say thoy like the butter made at these
factories, as thoy find it fresher and more
uniform in quality.
Mr. Lyman—A dairy-houso costs from
$600 to $800, and this will tako the milk
of from fifty to sixty cows. If neighbor
hoods would combine and build a good
apriog-houso, tho quality of butter would
b3 considerably enhanced.
VIBQINIA - INDUCEMENTS TO IMMIGRANTS.
C. P. Itamsdell, Spring Grove, Virginia,
mentioned them as follows: 1. Nearness
to the great cities and cheap communica
tion therewith. 2. Cheap land, free from
rock, with a gently rolling surface. 3. An
abundance of timber for building and
fencing. 4. A mild climate, and, I say
unequivocally, a healthy one. 6, Cheap
labor. This last has come to be a ques
tion, and the club admits its importanco
by frequently discussing it. I employ
two hands; one a first-class man, and tho
other a lad of 18. To one I pay $11 per
month, and to the other $3 per month.
As is the custom I issue to these hands ra
tions weekly, which is three pounds of
pork, and three and a half gallons of corn
meal. They have families who cook these
rations, and tbat is given iv lieu of board.
One of these hands, since the middle of
January, has plowed fifty acres for corn
with one team, turning it Beven iuches
deep with a steel plow. That team is
now harrowing the ground. j !
These freedmen, I believe, are to-day
the best laborers in the world. Taking
all into acsount, would a farmer prefer
living among rocks and snow to this de
lightful and fruitful country? There is
one other objection urged to settlement
here : The unfriendliness of tbe natiie
citizens to Northern settlers. I brought ]
my Republican politics with rae, and bave
never equivocated on that subject; and yet
myself, wife and daughters have received
as cordial a welcome as though I had been
one of Loe's veterans. My experience is
but the experience of others hero. There
fore, I wish to. say that tho fearful pictures
drawn by fruitful imaginations of the i
"raw head and bloody bones" of personal
abnse and social ostracism have no appli
cation to this locality. God has given us l
a magnificent country, What we need is 1
capital to employ the idle labor, and ener-
Itic and enterprising minds profitably to
reot it.
LONGER AND STRONGER.
R. W. Dean, Denver, Col.—l noticed in
recent report some statements made by
Mr. George N. Nichols, of Delphos, Kan., v
which need - correcting. Ho sayß "it is '
Kly to talk of mild winters where they
ye frost in June and snow storms in »
August. Now, it is well known that facts s
are better than guess work. I lived iv i
Colorado si,nce 1859, and I can truly say
that our winters are more mild and pleas- t
ant than in any region east of us. As c
many as four out of five years plowing t
and other farmwork is done every month
«>m September to May. Last winter and
is, also, plowing has been done on my
farm every month. We generally have a
very hard freeza in December, lasting about
a week, never as much as a month. It then y
moderates, and during the rest of the win- r
iter the weather is splendid ; frost comes
oot of the ground by January, and after
that it only freezes an inch or two at night, '
to thaw out again by noon of the next day.
La'«t year I kept a record of the days I
did notsse the sun shine, and it proved "'
this to be a country of fine weather. Only
three days' in the whole year were totally
cloudy, to wit, the 24th and 25th of April,
and the llt_ of August. That was for
1870. Thus far this year wo have seen
the sun every day. I will report again at
the end of the yoar. Cattle do live here,
Elo not often lay on "downy beds" of
s to die, though thousands have not a
hful of feed of any kind except what
get on tho range. I havo a pair of
3 now on my plow that were turned
ist November and were not fed even -
until last week, when they were
it and put to work plowing. Al
jh they were not fat when taken up <
looked better than hundreds seen in J
:arts any day. Iv my neighborhood
i is about two hundred head of stock of ,
inds running out without feed, and I i
)t know of any dying tbis year. It is
we have late and early frosts here, but
is dry air it does not injure vegetation ~
does where tho dews aro hoavy. s
could show Mr. Nichols snow fifty J
deep in August, witbin forty miles a
where he could see all kinds of ten- j
vegetables growing faster and larger ~
any he over saw east of Colorado, i
i nave seen a cabbage head with stump cut ;
off weighing fifty-six pounds, and other t
kinds in proportion. How is that for '
high 7 Mr. Meeker's judgment of the c
country between Cache la Poudre and t
Thompson Rivers is correct, as it is a p
splendid farming and stock-growing re- i
gion, with abundance of coal and water. J
Can you give me any information about i
the Sanford corn 7 Where can I get some | •
seed of the Chinese yam 7 Yours for (
truth and information for the people. j j
SCATTERING GOOD SEED IN JAPAN. ,
Warren Lelaud desired to lay before the «
vJtab a letter he had lately received. It is ,
now, be said, just eleven years ago that a c
company of Japanese made the tour of j
this country. One of them returned and i
remained a year at my farm in Westcht-s- j
ter, studying our modes of agriculture.
Since going back to Japan I have heard <
from him occasionally, and this is his ,
last: "Dear Sir: I am glad to let you ■
know following matter; The new gov- |
eminent hired me to Agricultural Office i
of Yedo, Ist Feb., and paid me few wageß, <
go try my fact. Am now commence open
large waste land vicinity Yedo. I will i
done it witbin two or three mouths, then (
I will going to northern part of Japan. I i
will send your farm over ten Japs to study J
agriculture after three or four months ;1 h
inciting to government and build other i
line railroad too." He used to say to me j
that his people had but two articles of .
food, fish and rice ; yet their hills ho be- '
lieved would produce as good grasses and
as good fleßh as ours, and ho is working as
thiß letter shows, with enthusiasm and dis
cretion to introduce our methods there. 1
coosider this letter equal in significance to
a volume of the Missionary Herald.
SOME CALIFORNIA PRACTICES CRITICISED.
Mrs. M. A. Sheldon, San Francisco,
wrote to say that in her opinion, as a gen- I
eral thing,'the husbandmen in California [
farm twice the Und tbey ought to. They
thoy have in wet years reaped a bountiful
harvest from kuc.li slovenly cultivation,
tht-y have grown ctreless aud tru_t a great
deal to the smiles of Providence, when if
ihey would put in the plow-beam deep,
and follow up with a subsoil plow, Pro
vidence would "grin right out" in a dry
tear. A farmer in Solano county told her
be nverage crop per acre of wheat in that
county used to be fifty bushels per acre, now
t ia less than thirty. She hoped a wo
man's observations on deep plowing
vouliin't bu a subject of ridicule, as farm-
Rg ib her hobby instead of "woman stif
sge."
A PIG AT TBI IH'ACON.
Seward Mitchell, Coonville, Mo.,
nounced to the gentlemen ol the Farmers'
Club that ho was greatly pained in read
ing the advice given by Deacon Lyman on
the subject of raising tobacco. Can wo,
he adds, as good citixens or philanthropists
encourage tbo raising of this unnecessary
and noxious weed? Think of tho thous
and of acres of land now devoted to to
bacco that might be used for tho purpose
of raisiug good wholesome bread. Think
of tho widows aud orphans it would feed.
Think of the time spent in this unhealthy
business which might bo spent in doing
good to the poor and suffering. "My
dear Deacon Lyman," concluded thin high
old moral philosopher, " I could wish you
had given that brother better advice than
instructing him how to poison tho land of
Ither man. How will that advice
fifty years hence? Is there any
between rum aud tobacco? -b,s
b' Club is a noblo institution ; may
md ita inlluence to intemporance I"
Clipper—But by your leave, most
it Mr. Mitchell, there is much good
tar.
. Miller, Sandy Spring, Md., staled
;ro are many advantages in his sec
tion for a cheeso factory—good grass, cen
tral location, twenty farmers would be
X furnish milk. "If tho right man
found to manage tho factory I have
bt the capital can bo raised to build
it, and that tho milk will be forthcoming
to make it a success. A factory has been
started recently in the adjoining county of
Loudoun, Virginia, and has been very suc
cessful so far."

The plows entered were Ihe Dixie two-horse right
and left-hand plows, and tho Watt two-horse left- J
hand. Soon after the ttfal commenced, the beam of
the Dixie right-hand broke in two aud was laid
aside, the contest bolng narrowed to the Watt left
hand and Dixie left-hand. Tho soil first selected
was a stnbble loam wlthontsoil ; but as the plows
were new, and did not turn In consequence of tbe
roughness of the castings, after a short trial it was
decided to take them Into another field when, the
soil was a well-trodden, tenacious clay,.with a tlmo- j
thy sod covered with vegetation and with straw.
The plows here porformed their work admirably,
cutting and Miming clear without choking.

Is no Intention to do injustice, to any, as neither j
party had agent or representative prt-ent, snd toth I
plows did well, yet the trial, with the award of the
Judges, is deemed of sufficient import— nee to the in

The award of the Judges was unanimously in favor I
of the Dixie on thu following grounds:
Ist. It cut a deeper furrow.
2d. It cut s wider furrow.
3d. It more effectually luverted tlie aod.
4th. The draft seemed to bo no greater.

Dr. J. addresses all thoße wbo have injured them

which ruin both body and mind, unfitting these ft. t
Milier business, study, society or marriage.
Theße are tome of tho sad and melancholy effect*
produced by early habits of youth, viz; Weakness ol

When the misguided and imprudent votary ol

ful disease, it too often happens that an ill-timed sensa
if shame or dr;*:«l of discovery datera him from ap
plying to those who, 1-oin educntion aed respecta
bility, can ale., betriend him. Ho falls into the
hands of ignorant and designing pretenders, who, i_>
OApable of curing, filch his pecuniary snbstunco, keep
him trifling mouth after month, or as long as the
smallest fee car* be obtained, and with dispair leave
him with rained health to sigh >.v_>i his galling dif>
