Action and Method of Using Guano.
In answer to the inquiries of our friend
of " Notly Hall," Va., in regard to the
action of guano on "poor worn-out land,'
we have to reply; that, on such lands, its
action should be most manifest-most ben
eficial-contaiiiing as it does, in a state to
be availed of, those substances which
plants need, which such land is most de
ficient in, and without a supply of which,
they cannot grow in luxuriance and per
feetion. The non-action of the guano
upon all the kinds of vegetables, with the
exception of one to which he applied it,
arose no doubt from the cause assigned
by our observant friend, viz: the drought
of the summer. Guano, like all other
kindred manures, requires moisture to
bring out its virtues; nor can the plants
avail themselves of any food that may be
in the ground, no matter how congenial it
may be, until that food, through the
agency of water, be reduced to a liquid,
or gaseous form, it is one or the other of
these forms which impart. to the rootlets
of plants the power of feeding.
With regard to the mode of using gu
ano, we give it as our opinion, which we
advanced from the beginning, and have
never seen any cause to change it, that
guano never should be applied without
being mixed with plaster, to fix and pre
vent the escape and waste of its ammonia
cal constituents. Before being used, 25
lbs. of plaster should be mixed with every
100 lbs. of Guano. This mixture should
be broadcasted over the ground and
ploughed, or spaded in. We believe that
any manure of the concentrated nature of
guano, abounding as it does in the ele
ments of ammonia in almost every state,
can but rarely be used safely, except as a
broadcast dressing, and that it cannot be
advantageously used in the hill or drill,
except when mixed with a large propor
tion, say twenty to one, of mould or some
other substance of similar nature, and
even then, that such compost should be
placed so deep as that the seed, setts, or
plants should not come in immediate con
tact with it.
If we were going to apply it to pota
toes in the hill, if we did not use it com
posted with a large body of mould as
above, we would use it thus-after mixing
the guano with plaster, we would strew
the mixture on the bottom of the furrow
or drill, and then cover that with an inch
or so of wood-mould, or other kindred
substance, and upon this plant the pota
to setts, and cover the whole over.
In using it on watermelon hills, we
would act thus: at the point for forming
the hill, we would make a hole with the
hoe, and there deposite the mixture of
guano and plaster, mix it in with the earth,
and raise the hill upon it from the sur
rounding mould ; or we would mix 200
lbs. of guano with 50 lbs. of plaster, and
then compost it with 3 loads of wood
mould, marsh mud, or like substance,
place a shovelful at the bottom of every
hill we might raise. By either of these
modes the vines would derive all the bene
fit from the virtues of the guano, without
any injury. The volatile portions would
ascend and feed the rootlets of the melon
plants, wvhile the roots would descend and
feast upon those of the constituent ele
ments of guano that are not volatile.
A solution of guano might be made in
the proportion of 1 lb. of guano and 10
gallons of water, wvith which the melon
plants might be very advantageously wa
tered in times of drought. Such a soln
tion would prove doubly useful, first, in
protecting the vines from the effects of
drought; and secondly by affording them
direct food-food of a nature adapted to
their wants, as the wvater would decom
pose the ammonia of the guano, deprive
it of the power of harm, and prepare it
to be taken up as pabulum.
W.e will add another remark, in order
to answer a question from another quar
ter. We believe the best way to apply
guano to tobacco, is to sow it broadcast
over the ground and plough it in-and,
that if applied to the hill, it should be
mixed with one-fourth its weight of plas
ter,~and for every 100 lbs. of the guano,
three loads of wood's mould should be
composted with it. In Peru, guano is ap.
plied to the crops at each time of work
ing ; but all such applications, are follow
ed by immediate irrigation ; the water ol
which, by decomposing the ammonia of
the manure, prevents all resulting injury,
and ensures benefit to the growving plants.
Where a wheat crop is to follow the
tobacco, we would, by all means, broad
cast and plough the guano in. If treated
to plaster and ploughed in, we have no
question but that the good effects of the
guano would be apparent during the or
dinary period of a rotation.-American
TURNING IN GREEN CRors.-Samuel
Eager, of Worthington, in a letter to
Samuel L. Hinckley, Secretary of the
Hampshire, Franklin, and Hampden Ag
ricultural Society, gives the following
result of an experiment in "turning in
crops, either green or dry, as a manure,"
submitting the same as an application
for a premium, under the first division of
" Experiments on Manure," offered by
said Society. We copy from the Brat
" The experiment has occupied several
years, and I have devoted no little time
and attention to the subject, 1 am happy
to say, with the most satisfactory result.
I had about two and a half acres of
meadow, which was worn out entirely ;
and when I seeded it down, the grass
wvould not take. I commenced by spread.
ing green stable manure over it, at the
rate of about twelve loads to the acre,
and plowed in, rolled it, furrowed it, and
planted to eorn, adding about eight loads
of manure to the acre in the hill, making
in all twenty loads to the acre. I got a
fair crop of corn, and next year seeded it
down to oats, with about eight pounds
clover-seed to the acre. The followving
June, the clover being very thick, and
about knee high, [-turned it in very care
an excellent crop. I cut the buckwheat
as high as possible, and turned the stub
ble in, then sowed the-oats four succes
aive years, (cradling my oats as high as
possible, and immediately turning the
stubble in,) and got an increased crop
every succeeding year. The manure a
lone would have run out in two- or three
years.; but turning in the clover and the
stubble every year, enriched the land,
and increased the crop. This piece,
having been seeded down, now bears
very heavy grass, quite equal to three tons
to the acre."
The Old Maid who wanted a Eusband.
Old Gov. L-, of Vermont, was one
of the most inveterate jokers of the early

never has been related in print, and never

will try it. One fall as he was returning
from the Legislature on horseback, as

often annoyed him with questions respect.

PREACHING PoLITIcs.-A worthy dea.
con in Connecticut hired a journeyman
farmer, from a neighboring town, for the

was unaccustomed to church-going with
his family to church on the first Sabbath
of his stay. Upon their return to the
deacon's house he asked his "hired man"
how he liked preaching.
He said he didn't like to hear any min

Ma. J. E. blAasnIAL,-Dear Sir: In compli
ance with your request. I make this simple state
ment of facts. My boy Daniel stuck a thorn i;
his foot about the first of last June, the thor:
was extracted, and no more thought of it for 1
or 20 days, his foot then began to swell, and in
few days it was opened. It discharged a larg
quantity of matter. The discharge continue(
for eight days, and then ceased. 11is foot the:
re-commenced swelling and extended up his leg
thigh, and hip, with violent pain. He then be
gan to spit from his lungs matter similar to thu
discharged from the abscess on his foot. I the
called in medical aid, and from the remedies used
he was alternately better and worse for eight c
ten weeks. During this time a large absec:
formed upon the hip, the discharge was larg<
and as soon as it ceased, a general swelling of h
leg, thigh and breast commenced, which was ver
hard to the touch, and at times experienced muc
difficulty in swallowing. hledical aid seemed c
no further avail, and was discontinued. I the
had recourse to your " Alagical Pain Eradicator.
In forty-eight hours, from the time I commence
its use, his root began to soften : the swelling o
his hip and breast subsided, and I amn pleased I
say he is now well.
I again used your remedy in a case of Net
ralgia, with great success, giving immediate rc
lief. I have tried it also for Tooth-Ache, wit
my youngest child, with entire Euccess.
Frm the success I have had in the use<
your " Magical Pain Eradicator," I have no hes
tation in recommending it to the public.
