Cut Wheat Early.
Every one will be apt to do so this
season. It is a satisfaction to be assured
that it is the best plan, both for quantity
and quality of flour. The following arti

of, treats the subject very intelligently.

. "oPER TIME FOR CURING WHEAT.
---b rou a very careful series of experi
ments made in England, in 1840-1841,
by Mr. John Hannan, of Yorkshire, with
the view of determining the proper period
of reaping wheat, it was decided that the
best time for performing the operation is,
when it is in a "raw" state, or when the
straw, as seen from a distance, appears
green, but, closely examined, is found t(
be approximating to yellow, and the
grain itself, being separated from the
chaff, is pulpy and soft, but not in the
milky stake This gentleman has shown
that at least six dollars per acre are lost
by allowing the wheat to become ripe be
fore it is cut, and that, at the same time,
its quality is not so good.
' he chief advantages derived frcm this
method are stated to be a greater weight
of grain to a given space of ground,
which produces more flour, of a superior
quality ; the straw contains more nutri
tive matter, and is better relished by ani
nials ; and there is a better opportunity
of securing the crop, and a saving in so
doing, as there is less waste in moving or
reaping the wheat by the dropping out of
Like all other operations in the vegeta.
be economy. the ripening of the seed
c->nsists entirely of various chemical pro.
cuases, the nature of which need not be
explained here, but the result should be
carefully considered, in order to arrive
at a conclusion as to the modifying influ
ences of different modes of culture. When
an ear of wheat first fills, it appears al.
most entirely composed of a substance
resembling milk; in about a week or ter.
days after this, if we examine the crop,
we shall find the seed much more solid.
the milky juice having hardened and con
solidated, and the straw having begun t<
wither, which it always does from the
ground to the ear. At this period, the
straw will he vellow for about a foot
above the ground ; in another week or
ten days the crop will be perfectly ripe:
that is to say, the straw will be uniformly
yellow up to the car, and the chaff will
be sufficiently loose to admit of the grail
being rubbed out by the hands. On ex
amnining the ear, the most perceptible d
ference which has taken pelace since th.
last period will be that the skin will hay
becemfe much thicker and harder, whih
tho flour will be diminished in quantity
Now, this is the important point, namely.
that the last chanage in the seed is an ex
cess of bran, and a relative diminution of
flour, which change increases materially
according to the length of time whicl:
elapses between the ripening and the har
vesting the crop). From the above i
would appear, then, that it is the farmner's
interest to cut hi wheat before it become
Itis to be hoped that our farmers ivil
attend to every thing this, season that can
be made to go towards increasing supplies

used. Generally our wheat straw is thrown
away entirely. If saved according to the
above plan, it is by no means worthless.
Save it at any rate. in rail pens webi

the whole of it caref'ully ; there is no tel

Very Seasonbie Advice.
In the Dollar Newspaper ap pear some
good hints on Corned Beef. We copy
them and advise particular attention to
the subject. Many beeves will be killed
this year to eke out our home rations.
It is well to know how to cure and cook
them. Says the authority before us:
" There are two or three things to be
done in order to procure this great luxury
of the table In the first place, then, do
not get your meat too salt, it makes it
tough and tasteless. Do not allow -it to
remain over two weeks in the first brine.
for it takes up all the blood that was in
the meat, and consequently ought to b..
drained off as the meat will be much more
likely to be injured than it will whlena
separated and, replaced with fresh made
brine, but more especially in warm
weather. In this way it will keep with
just sufficient salt 'to season it. In the
second place, the cooking is of just as
much importance as the corning ; it should
be boiled at least four hours, or until it
can be cut and eaten as readily as a piece
of soft bread. Not one half of the domes
tics cook their meat long enough. Try it
once, and you will see the difference.
My meat prepared in this way can be
eaten with a relish, and is easily digested.

" Untie the Hame-String."
This is the motto of an article in the
last Cotton Planter by G. D. H ARnno.
Within a few years we have heard of
two cases of death in this District from
being dragged by the gear of work hor.
ses. Read and heed Mr. HARMox's ad.
DR. CILO-.Dear Sir :-Let me ask
your readers, planters, managers, one and
all, never, under any circumstances, what
ever, permit a plowman to get upon the
back of a mule or horse to or from the
field, with the laarestring tied. If you
do you will stand a good chanice to have
him or her thrown from the mule, and
their feet hanging ini the trace chains,
nd contented. The history of insurrec
ions prove that its leading spirits have all i
teen negro mechanics.
Drinking Impure Water.
It is a good rule to drink water fresh
rom the spring or well, every time you
teed it, and only when you really need it.
[he evil of keeping water on hand, espe.
ially in confined rooms, is thus shown
ip by one who seems to know what he is
"Set a pitcher of iced water in a room,
nhabited, and in a few hours it will have
tbsorbed from the room nearly all the
espired and perspired gases of the room,
he air of which will have become purer,
>ut the water utterly filthy. This de.
)ends on the fact that water has the facul.
y of condensing and thereby absolving
nearly all the gases, which it does without
ncreasing its own bulk. The colder the
vater is, the greater itr capacity to con
ain these gases. At ordinary tempera.
ures a pint of water will contain a pint
>f carbonic acid gas, and several pints of
immonia. This capacity is nearly doubled
>y reducing the temperature to that of
ce. Hence water kept in the room awhile
s always unfit for use, and should be often
-enewed, whether it has become warm or
tot. And for the same reason, the water
n a pump stock should all be pumped
tut in the morning before any is used.
rhat which has stood in the pitcher over
tight is not fit for coffee water in the
norning. Impure water is more injuri.
aus to health than impure air, and every
ne should provide the means of obtaining
resh pure water for all domestic uses."
CORn ! CoRs !!-No one can compute,
emarks the Macon Telegraph, the disas
er and misery which will come upon us
s a people, should we fail to produce this
ear the most abundant grain crop-not
uch crops as have been called abundant
eretofore-but such a yield as will ad
nit of waste in the ordinary operations
f war, and perhaps some considerablke
estruction from the enemy. A short
rop or a failure may be our ruin as a
eople, for we cannot starve and fight.
. scanty corn crop is far more to be
Ireaded than anything our enemy can do
o injure us. The planter who is insane
y ne'glecting his corn crop tfr cotton now,
s unwittingly fighting the battles of Lin.
:oln. A good hand in the field is worth
,s much to our cause as a good soldier in
he ranks, and the planter who is using a
undred suoh hands to produce only corn
nough to feed them is striking a fell blow
,t the cause of his country. If you are
ot sure you are doing your part towards
,n abundant corn Lror, set about it now
n God's name. One of our correspon
lents says "plow up the cotton." Yes!
low it up, if need be. Look out for
orn first, last and all the time.

vests the following as a cheap dessert for
amp life. It might be if' the cream were

ever think of the danger to which they t
expose the negro's fifteen hundred dollar t
life by allowing him to ride his mule with
the hame string tied. It is an easy matter
to take this precaution, and thus if the
plow man should be thrown from his mule, f
geer and negro all come to the ground
together, and no harm done. If you will
lay down the rule, and explain to the ne.
groes how much danger to which they will
expose themselves in violating it, and thenr
whip the first rascal that disobeys the or- t
der, then you will have very little trouble
to enforce the law.

He Advocates the Grasses.
Our old and esteemed friend of the
American Cotton Planter -takes us up t
with much force on the subject of growing s
grasses at the South. Dr. CLOUD is a 1
practical man and we have no notion of
hitching horns with him on this or any r
other agricultural topic. Having said r
our say, we give room for his,-or at least i
the chief portion of it. We hope he is
entirely right, and are glad to hear that
his experience has justified his reasoning.
Let him speak for himself. After a few
remarks setting aside our notion that blue c
grass, timothy and clover were the chief
grasses, the DOcron goes on to says:
"But we must take issue with our friend r
as to the other grasses, and though we t
shall not at all disparage timothy or blue u
grass, they are not all or even the best
grasses that grow. Every country has
its Flora, even as its Fanna, acclimated
and adapted to its wants. Who has proved r
that timothy and blue grass arc more c
nutritious or handsome, as hay or on the i
field, than our Bermuda or Crop grass,
(that great enemy to cotton, gen'l green ?)
Did you ever see, my dear sir, an acre or
a field of cultivated crop grass? We
nave, with a dressing of one hundred and t
.ifty pounds of best manipulated guano to I
the acre, which fell under the scythe three i
feet in length; making as good and nu- c
-ritious, sweet hay as was ever mowed.
Of the Bermuda, Mr. Affleck says that no t
grass makes better hay and our experience I
-atisfactorily confirms, to our own judg- e
-iient, the opinion. So much then for our a
hay resources, to say nothing of Crew foot r
end other natives. But these grasses a
