farmer (from the smallest to the greatest,
from the oldest to the youngest planter,) -is
deeply interested. Its chief object is to
benefit the farmer and elevate his profession
to that degree of eminence to which it has,
gidoubtedly, so many just claims. No one

ALTHOUGH we have generally saved an
unusual quantitfbf good fodder this season,
we should by no means neglect to save all
the bay that can possibly be gathered. Hay
when properly saved, is worth more than
fodder and will at any time command -a
higher price in cities. It is an easy matter
to save it, and by pressing it in the Cotton
screw, can be made into convenient pack
ages for transportation.
As all our farmers are blessed with a fine
crop of this commodity, let us see who will
report the largest quantity saved. For the
benefit-of those wishing to enter the lists we
pluck the following from the Farmer 4
CUTTING HAY.-There are at present a
multitude'of conflicting opinions in relation
to the period when grass should be cut,
some contending that the operation of mow
ing should be commenced as soon as the de
velopment of the flowers has commenced ;
others that the" -scythe should by no means
be introduced till the sd has become par
tially matured, as the ppose the superior
value of this adds more to the value of the
plant as a whole, than it abstract. No deft
nite rules, however, can be laid down in thia
matter, as practice must necessarily vary
with the contingencies of temperature, as
pect, climate and the specific character of
the grasses ordinarily cultivated. For our
own part, we think that one should com
mence as soon as infiorescence begins. He
will then have time to get through baying
before the crop becomes too far advanced
to~eards maturity ; and his hay, though less
heavy, and consequently somewhat less
valuable as a market product, perhaps, will
be much more succulent and sweet tbsp if
permitted to stand till a later period, or till it
becomes dead ripe.
The old method of making hay in the
sun and drying it till scarcely a particle of
moisture is left in the fibre, is now almost
universally depreciated. On this subject,
one of the greatest farmers who has ever
lived, has the following remarks, which we
find in the Germantown Telegraph:
" As soon as the grass is fairly~freed from
moisture, it is put into heaps, which are
made as high as possible ; and to prevent
these from falling dowvn a small stake is
driven into the ground, around which the
grass is carefully arranged with the hand.
A handful of grass is then taken fromn one~
of the swvaths, and the longest and strongest'
portions are chosen from it to cover the top
of the heap or hay-cock with, care being
taken to trim the upper or flowvering part of
the grass dowvnward. These pyramidal
heaps are then suffered to remain until the
grass of which they are composed is thor
oughly dry, which is generally somewhere
between the eighth and fifteenth day. On
the heap being opened, the grass in the inte
rior of it will generally be found to retain
its hue and freshness. I have seen grass
thus made into large heaps, in dry and windy
weather, which has made very rapidly with
out requiring to be moved, and has been
quite green. Temporary rain or showvers
will not do it any harnm beyond that of de
priving the external parts of some portion
of its greenness, but should the wet weather
continue for any considerable period of time,
there is a possibility of the -hay becoming
too much compressed; it will then be neces
sary to open the heaps, and shake and loos
en the hay, in order to prevent it from ac
quiring an unpleasant flavor."
This may be obviated by making the cocks
small, say of about eighty pounds wveight,
when first put up, and 'covering them care
fully with green grass. 1 give you this for
what it is worth, some may be induced to
try it this season on a small scale, and report
the result. One thing is admitted by every
one, which is, that the less the hay, in ma
king, is exposed to the sun, the more valua
ble it is, it retains its color and flavor better,
and consequently is worth a great deal more
per ton than when dried up by the burning
rays of the sun.-Real Estate Register.
Asizs IN~ ARICULTURE.-Wood ashes is
one of the most important fertilizers. It is,
easily obtained in any quantity at little or
no expense. Take them carefully from your.
hearths and save them until your corn and
potatoes have risen two or three inches from
the ground, then take a basket on your arm
and from it take a small handful of ashes
and cast it at the root of your plants and hoe
them soon, so as cover the ashes. By this
means you will increase your crop one-half.
Ashes contain all the inorganic substances
of the wood or plants which are consumed,
part of these are soluble and part insoluble.
But the soluble substances mixed with water
will dissolve the insoluble. Thus, dissolved
potash will dissolve silica and prepare it for
glazing the stalks of cane, corn, wheat, &c.
. Not a particle of ashes should go to waste.
Leached ashes has parted with most of its
potash, but it still retains its phosphoric acid
and most of its lime.
Ashes neutralizes acids in the soil, they
warm cold, mossy, wet places, they are
very destructive to insects, they assist to
break down and dissolve the coarse fibres
and stalks ln compost heaps, render hard,
layed soils open, loamy and fertile.
The potash, so material to most crops,
can be obtained here, only from ashes. In
granite. regions, potash is obtained from the
dissolution of the field spar, but. we have
none in this region of country.
Wheat contains a large proportion of pot
ash. Fifty-nine per cent, of the ashes of
corn is carbonate of potash, and one-half of
the earthy-part of Irish potatoes is pure pot.
Save your ashes, therefore, as carefully

LIGHTNlG AND lRASS.
Messrs. Coulter 4 Scooter :-1 do not re
colleethaving seen anything in your columns
on the effects of lightning on cotton or grass.
There can be but little doubt that electricity
has considerable to do with the growth of
cotton as well as grass. It is said that the
rain when, attended with thunder and light
ning is more nourishing and fertilizing than
showers without it, but I wont say whether
it is so or not. But. I have lately seen in
my cotton patch, when looking about for
the whereabouts of a streak of lightning,
that occurred recently very near -iny house,
a circle of about twenty-five yards diameter,.
including twenty-one or more rows of cot
ton, which was quite destroyed by lightning,
having a burnt or parched appearance. In
the circumference of the circle stood a per
simmon tree, twenty-five or thirty feet high,
which had the bark, for about six or eight
feet of the lower part of the trunk and on
opposite sides rent in longitudinal fiissures
of a foot or so long, with occasional inter
missions in the line where the bark was not
injured-the wood was not injured in tex
ture in any part. The only sign of violence
in the soil was a hole about knee-deep in the
centre of the circle.
Was this tree struck with lightning I Or
was it the effect of the electricity going from
the.centre of the circle from the ground to the
and clouds, causing such rarefgction of the
atmosphere as to relieve the bark of the tree
from the ordinary pressure of the atmos.
phere, thus causing the bark to burst open I
Or is this the usual cause of the splitting-o
trees and other bodies under the effects oi
Well, furthermore, if the cotton was killed
so dead, I suppose that by the rule of three,
you would calculate or philosophize it out
some way that the grass was all dead in
the same circle-but, Sirs, you are very
much mistaken: it is as flourishing as ever
It is easy for bystanders to make observa.
tio'ns on our having a grassy crop this year,
but when we see the blighting effects of
lightning fail, we do not wonder that the well
aimed blows of hoes, and them dull too,
should come a little short of killing exactly
P. S.-Please print this in the paper of
our school-fellow, old Dr. BURT, as we wani
to hear what he says about it.
ART OF MILKING.-The art of milking
well is not taught in a hurry. It requirel
longr practice to milk properly, and therefore
all the young people on a farm ought to be
shown how tbe labor should be done. It is
quite important that this branch of the dairy
should be particularly attended to, for a
good milker obtains at least a quart more
from the same cow than a poor milker.
The first lesson to be taught to young
people is gentleness and kindness to thE
cow. They never need' be treated harshly,
in case the business is properly commenced.
Cows that have been caressed and uniform.
ly well treated, are fond of having the milli
drawn from the udder at the regular time ol
milking, for it gives them relief from the dis
tensions of the milk tucts.
Let young people be put to milking thE
farrow cows first, or such'as are to be soors
dried, and then the loss from bad .milking
will be less injurioins. The hand should ex
tend to the extremity of the teats, for the
milk is then drawn easier.
Young people should be taught to milk at
fast as possible. More milk is always ohb
tained by a rapid milker than by a slow one.
They should therefore be taught to think oi
nothing else while milking, and no conver.
sation must be permitted in the milk yard.
They should sit up close to the cow and
rest the left arm gently against her shankt
Then if she raises her foot, as she sometime.
will, merely to change position, shte will ntol
be likely to put it into the milk pail.
In case of a disposition to kick, or rathier
to raise her foot on account of pain occasion.
ed from soreness of the teats, the nearer the
milker sijs to her, and the harder he presses
his,left arm against her leg the less risk wvill
be run of being injured.
Cows me be taught to give down theiu
milk at once-and they may be taught. tc
hold it a long while and to be stripped indefi
nitely. The best way is to milk quick and
not use the cow to a long stripping, or an
after strippling-Northern Farmer.

How TO PRRVBNJT THE TU~RN1P FLY-A
correspondent informs us that two ounces ol
sulphur, commonly called flour of brimstone,
mixed with a pound of turnip seed, will
effectually prevent the fly from destroying
the crop. This preventive is extremely
cheap, the cost not exceeding 2d. per acre.
In mixing, employ a little rape oil, whicb
will cause the sulpher-to adhere to the seed ;
but care should be taken not to use too
much oil, as that would prevent the seed
from passing through the drill-Comber

" I have used Jacob's Cordial in my family, and this, with
all I hear about it as a remedy by those who have tried it,

Cordial, must stand pre-eminent above all other preparations

GEORGIA SARSAPARILLA !
A PURE & UNADULTERATED ARTICLE,
FOR DISEASES OF THE LIVER,
AUS 2f B IU1fl TE 3133.
T HIS SARSAPARILLA is made of the Sarsa
pa-illa which grows in the Southern States and
nothing else. It has the natural Sarsaparilla taste.
Its effect upon the system in all oases in which Sar
saparilla is indicated is wonderful. It is a great
safeguard against diseases arising from a torpid state
of the Liver, or impure state of the Blood.
Generally, it acts upon the Bowels as a mild par
gative or laxative. It not only mildly moves the
Bowels, but gives tone to the system by restoring a
healthy action in the Liver, and by freeing the blood
from its impurities.
For' children it is a great preventive -of worms
and supercedes the necessity of giving them so
much worm medicine at the same time it improves
their general health.
A better and more useful medicine cannot be in
troduced into Edgefleld District, either for profes
sional or family use, than the Georgia Sarsapar-lla.
This Sarsaparilla is not to be sold -on commia
Price, per bottle, $1-Six bottles 85. For sale by
