ORDER UPON THE FARM.
It has been very correctly said that order or
method is the secret of success of many wealthy
men of the mercantile class. The above being
true, the rule is applicable to the farming classes.
What we mean by order is, "a place for every
thing and everything in its place." By every
thing, we mean all that a farmer uses in his
business. A farmer should see that every rail
and bQard about his premises is in its proper
place; that his fences are in condition to pre
vent the entrance or exit of his own or other
people's cattle without his consent. Every one
who neglects this, neglects his peace of mind as
well as subjects himself to losses that must be
repaired by means that could have been other
wise profitably employed. I have known the
cultivators of the soil to succeed well in matur
ing crops, but by neglecting to keep their fences
in order, lose the most valuable part of their
labors. But I am glad to state that such cases
are not frequent in these times. In the next
place the farmer should not allow his cattle that
are used in the farm work to be scattered in
discriminately over his fields, as much time is
lost in getting them to their places, and, as
" time is money," it should be economized as
much as possible. He should be careful to have
his harness all in working order, his working
cattle near his harness house; then but a few
minutes are required for his day's plowing and
hauling. His implements of every description,
should be kept near his dwelling, that no time
be lost in repairing those that are out of order.
Many-persons will say that they cannot find
time to do all these things. Stop, dear reader,
I know you can, because whenever you see a
rail missing from your fence, go and put it back
immediately, for then is the time. In case the
rail should'be des-troyed, appropriate the first
idle one you come to. If you should have no
idle one, lose no timne in procuring one, for if
you do not, nine chane4 in ten you lose more
by neglect than if yoi stop the plow long
enough to make them. W .enever you are done
using a plow hoe, rake, hay- .rk, thresher, reap
er or anything else, take it immediately to the
barn-make this an invariable rule, and let all
your men know it. The result will be that
when anything is wanted, the person sent for it
will know where to find it. I would have every
farmer have some of the most necess.ary tools
used in making and repairing his implements of
husbandry, for I know every one who is able to
own a farm, is able to have such things. The
rainy season, in which much could be done in
the way of making and repairing, is always lost
to farmers, because they have not the imple
ments of manufacture. During such times he
might put all his utensils in excellent working
order, whereas, if it was neglected until fair
weather, he has scarcely had it done before
another rainy season overtakes him. Thus all
fair weather, in which he might have plowed,
passes in repairing. To conclude: Farmers,
preserve order in everything, and peace, pros
perity, and health will accompany you through
life.-Ohio Vallcy KFrner.
GRAFTING THE GRAPE.-Grafting the grape
can be performed without (lifliculty. First, cut
the graft before any preparation fur growth has
commenced, and keep them in an ice house, or
other cool place, until the leaves of the stocks
have begun to expand. Before this time the
stock will bleed " bleed," and prevent so certain
success afterwards. As soon as the leaves begin
to open, the bleeding ceases. The grafts are in
serted precisely as in fruit trees, and should be
done as low down or near, the root as practica
ble. Graftirig clay or wvax is then applied, and
the work is done.
Naw GnAFTIII WAx.-Take two ounces of
common rosin, melt it slow over a fire, being
careful not to heat so much as to make it throw
off' its spirits of. turpertine. When it becomes
clear as syrup, add a little less. than one ounce
of alcohol, and mix well and .put in a bottle at
on'ce,' and cork tight. .Alcohol is to be added
.sufficient to make the mixture liouid and keep
it so, and when applied to trees it hardens at
once, and forms an air-tight covering.
A VrAUAni.E GRAPE.-Mr. J. N. Shepherd
writes to the Country Gent lemnan that he has a
valuable grape which ripens from the first to
. the fifteenth of September, bunches medium
size, being medium size, round, black, very
sweet, juicy and thin skin, without pulp. It is
*har'y, and will bear good crops in any soil, with
little or no attention. Two years ago, when the
mercury stood for several days 25" to 30* below
zero, and the Isabella and Catawba were killed
to the ground, somo of them even below the
ground, this grape remained untouched, green
and sound, and bore full crops the next season.
Mr. Shepherd has made a fine wvine fronm the
grape, and offers to distribute the cuttings to
such as will cultivate it, and in turn distribute
it for general ho: ticultural good. Tihe grape
was originated by a German in Marion,, Ohio,
and is called the " Black Germnan." It is a good
110W WE DID IT.
Some twenty years since, my father bought a
farm which was "wo)rked too death," as t..e
neighbors said. Well, we found o'ut how it had
been worked, when we put a heavy team and
new plough at work, and the virgin soil wams
turned up six inches below the four inches
worked to death. Our neighbors prophesied a
failure, amnd when our crops vied with and ex
ceeded their own, they were full of surmnisings
ais to the wonderful strangers who wvere so suc
cessful in renewing such killed soil.
"What manure did you put on that field ?'
a neighbor asked my fathber, one morning, as
they wer looking at the deep green waving
corn, growing so iuimkly therein.
"Ploughed deep' ! plonghed deep !" answered
he; " there is nothing like ploughing deep, and
thoroughly pulverizing the soil, to bring good
crops in all kinids of weather."
That field had been used as a meadow some
fifteen years, producing half a ton of hay to the
acre. We broke it up deep, planted one year,
sowed oats the next with clover and~ timothy,
andl third cut two tons to the aere.
Another field hats beeni used for oats the same
length of time. We ploughed, but poor oats,
as so much deep, new evil was turned up, never
having been exposed to the weather, a hard and
almost impenetrable crust having beent formed
at the depth of three or four inches, where the
plough had scraped for years.
As soon as possible, we grassed it, and had
excellent nieadows, where others thought noth
ing but a bad weed, called devilsgut, could grow.

TAR, A REMEDY FoR HoasE DISTEarE.
Thomas W. Ladd, of Smithfield, Jefferson Co.,
Ohio, writes thme Ohio Farmer, that lie has found
a remedy and cure for "distemnper" in horses.
He says: Having three colts sick with this dis
ease, an experienced farmer told me to use tar,
and he thought that the sick colts would soon
recover, and that those who had not taken the
disease would not have it at all, or but lightly.
I followed his directions to my entire satisfac
tion. I gave the colts, morning and evening, asI
much as I could readily get into their mouths
with a paddle. After a few applications, the
sick onee commenced running at the nose, their
' appetites returned, and in a short time they had~
entirely gained what they had lost from disease.
The others never took it to my knowledge.
"Some prefer mixing' fish-oil with the tar ;
but I used it alone, and I believe it to be entirely
suffiient, if the article be pure good tar. I
would have no faith at all in the coal tar, now
in use in some places."
REMEDY von LEAKs.-A correspondent of the
Lynn News says:-"Seome years ago I had a
leaking 'L.'-Every northeast storm drove its
waters in. I made a composition of four pounds
of rosin, one pint linseed oil, and one ounce red
lead, applied hot with a brush to the part where
the La joined the main house. It has niever
leaked since. I then recommended the com
position to my neighbor, who had a Lutheran
'window which leaked badly. He applied it and
the leak stopped. I-made my water cask tight
by this composition, and have recommended it
for chimneys, windows, &c., and it has always
provd a cure for a leak."

COVEaING FOR MILK-PAIs.-I have a new
plan for covering milk-pans in summer, to keep
out dust, flies, &c. I take a piece of common
brown sheeting, and cut it about three inches
larger than the top of the pan, and make a wide
hem, say an inch, around it. I then take large
wire and bend it in a circle same size as the
cloth, and run it into the hem, and fasten it
there. When laid over the pan, the wire falls
over the edge of the pan, to the effectual exclu
sion of dust or any other substance. It. A. T.
ARTIFICIAL IIoN Ev.-I send you the follow
ing recipe to make h-oney, which can hardly be
distinguished from the honey of bees:
Take of soft water 6 lbs.,
White moist (brown sugar) 20 lbs.,
Pure bees' honey 3 lbs.,
Cream of tartar 80 grs.,
Essence of roses 24 drops.
Mix in a brass kettle; boil five minutes; take
it off, and add the white of two well-beaten
eggs. When almost cold, add two pounds more
bees' honey. A decoction of slippery elm bark
will improve the honey if added while cooling.
D. W. C. TowNE. Morgan.
YEAST FOR BREAD OR CAKE.-In a quart of
boiling water, stir sufficient wheat flour to make
a smooth thick batter; while hot, stir in it 4
ounces white sugar and a tea-spoonful of salt.
When cold, put in sufficient yeast (say near a
tea-cupful,) to cause the mass to ferinent. Lay
it by in a covered jar for use. Half a tea-cup
ful is enough to make two large loaves. To re
new the yeast when used up reserve a tea-cupful.
This recipe my wife considers her own inven
tion, as she has never seen it. It is simple and
efficient for raising buckwheat cakes and bread
-very light and very white if the flour is good.

TILE FARMER'S CREED :-One of our exchanges
gives the following first rate advice under the
heading of " The Farmer's Creed:"
"We believe in small farms and thorough cul.
tilation. The soil loves to eat as well as its own
ers, and therefore to be nurtured. We believe in
large crops, which leave the land beLter than
they found it-makin; both the farm and farmer
rich at once. We beleve in going to the bottom
of things, and therefore in deep ploughing, arid
enough ofit-all the better if with a subsoil
plough. We believe that the best fertility of any
soil is the spirit of industry, enterprise and intel
ligence-without this, lime and gypsum, bones
and green manure, marl or plaster, will be of lit
tle use. We believe in a clean kitchen, a neat
wife in it, a spinning piano, a clean cupboard.
dairy and cunscience. We firmly disbelieve in
farmers that will not improve ; in farms that
grow poor every year ; in starved cattle; in far
mer's boys turning into clerks and rnerchants:
in 'armers daughters unwilling to work; and in
all farmers who are ashamed uf their vocation."
HIous vYs. Dos.-" What a dog lives upon will
keep a hog." If anybody doubts the truth of
the saving, let him kill his useless dog and put
a pig in the pen and give it the dog's allowance.
He will find in a few months that he has a fine
fit porker fit to he eaten. a use the dog could
not be possibly applied to by any christian main.
There are too many dogs in the country, by .far
too many-if they had all been killed a year ago
there might havebeen two hundred pounds of
good fat pork in the country to balance against
every dog so set aside, which would be no consid
erable item in the present scarcity of supplies.
Dogs are a nuisance and should be taxed.
While every farmer keeps his dog, and every
slave his dog, and every free negro his two or
three dogs, shep stand a poor chance to get
through the world and yield their annual fleece
with untorn throats. The increase of the dog
population accounits for the scarcity of sheep.
Wheat, although considered by some as a na
tive of Sicily, originally came from the central
table-land of Thibet, where it yet exists as a
grass, with small, mealy seeds. Rice was first
brought from South Africa, whence it was taken
to India, and thence to Europe and America.
