THE JACQUES STUMP EX
For many years, indeed as long as the
clearing of forest land for agricultural
purposes has been necessary, (and this
period dates anterior to the days of Co
lumbus,) thegreat difficultyin clearing
has been to get rid of the stump or root
of the tree which. remained in the
ground after the tree was felled and
converted into the thousand and one
uses for which the timber was neces
sary. . In such land, interlayed with
roots and stumps, the modem improve
ments in agricultural implements
could not be made use of, and in these
days when all sueh labor-saving ma
chines are most essential to the thriv
ing farmer or Rlanter, he must first
look to the radical clearing of his
Oar enterprising fellow-citizen and
mastermechanic. Mr. James M. Eason,
has given this subject much of his at
tention of late, and has been so success
ful as to invent a very simple machine
which has been illustrated and describ
ed ih the December number of the Ru
ral Carolinian but which was not put
to the test until yesterday. This new
invention of Mr. Eason is appropriate
ly called the "Jacques stump extrac
tor;" and en trial yesterday with a le
verage of only 36 inches, it raised 16,
000 tons of iron; while the young
man who worked the lever felt nomore
inconvenience than if working a com
mon ebstern pump. With a ten-foot
leverage, a man, it is supposed, could
raise one hundred tons; and the stump
which would resist this force should
be left to its native bed.
Mr. Eason has applied for a patent
for the extractor, and in the course of
a few days will take it up-to some of
the neighboring farms and extract
some of the hind teeth of old mother
Mr. D. Lee has the following to say
on this inteiesting subject in the Ru
ra fNew Yorker:
In an essay by Dr. James R. Nichols,
published in the Agriculture of Mas
sachusetts for 1868, he remarks: "A
pound of good thoroughly formed peat,
. taken fresh from a meadow upon my
farm, lost or water in drying, a little
more than fourteen %unces. A far
mer drawing from his meadow a cord
of peat weighing 4,000 pounds has
upon his wagon 3,500 pounds of water,
and but 500 pounds of the dry material
he seeks. This, dried and compress
ed, could be placed in a couple. of our
largest sized farm baskets."
This concentration would add large
.ly to'the value of peat as an absorbent
of watery stable dropping. By drying
peat, decaying forest leaves or straw,
after repeated saturations with cattle
- urine, the fertilising salts contained
therein would 'oe higly concentrated.
The water in stable manure is not
worth hauling and spreading on our
fields, and it should be evaporated.
Use well dried peat, leaves or straw
for absorbing urine or other liquid
manure. Then dry out the water and
use the same bedding repeatedly till
filled with agricultural salts, which
are worth as much pound for pound,
as Peruvian guano. Why should this
imported muan*ure sell freely at seven
ty-five dollars per ton, while the far
mers' home-made stuff will not bring
one-twentieth as much?i The owners
and cultivators of the soil have been
manufacturing plant food for home
use for indefinite centuries without
any sensible progress or improvement
in the business. In a report made to
the Legislature of New York in 1843,1
called pubic attention to the prodigious
loss of honest farm labor, literally
thrown away by its misapplication.
Many thought that my remarks were
unjust. But now, after the lapse of
over a quarter of a century, a high
Massachusetts authority tells us that
in one hundred parts of common farm
manure, in that educated and wealthy
-State, there are ninety of water and
worthless saud: -
Ho'mE READING.-One of the most
pleasant and noblest duties of the head
of the family is to furnish its members
with good reading. Let good reading go
into a home, and the very atmosphere of
that home gradually but surely changes.
The boys begin to grow ambitious, to
talk about men, places, books, the nast
and the future. The girls begin to feel
a new life opening before them in know]
edge, duty and love. They see new
fields of usefulness and pleasure; and
so the family changes, and out of its
number will grow intelligent men and
women'to fill honorable places, and be
useful members of society. Let the
toreh of intelligence be lit in every
household. Let the old and young vie
wit.h each other in' introducing new
and useful topics of investigation, and
in cherishing a love of reading, study
How TO Do DoGs-If you have a
good dog that kills or runs sheep, and
don't want to shoot him, build a pen
16 feet square and run a pole across
the top, and then pick the largest arid
oldest buck of the flock, put him in
the pen, get your dog with a collar
around his neck, and rope to draw up
over the middle of the pole, so that
the dogiwill have his fore-feet swing
ing off of the ground a .few inches.
Get out of the pen, and let the~ buck
give him several good butts and then
turn. him loose. This is a sure cure.
I tried it on my father's dog when I was
a boy; never knew them to even cross
a field'where the sheep were grazing.
The wool crop of Iowa is larger than
ever before, for the farmers have dis
covered that sheep are much more
profitable than grain or cattle.
Set it down as a fact that hay, corn,
oats, and fodder of all kinds are worth
50 per cent. more if fed out on the

Ma. C. P. K5NGHT-SIa: The Paint came safely to hand as ordered-two kegs, five
gallons cach, and three buckets, one gallon each. As practice was slack, I did the jol
my.self. Two weeks, (not constant work,) completed the house two coats. The last coal
I applied thick, and it is now generally conceded that for enamel-like hardness, and body,
and harmony of colors, there is not a handsomer job in the place. I saved sixty-five dol
lars by the operation, which is an item just now with Southern people. It should be gen
erally adopted in this State. Any country lad can apply it. I have never dabbled ir
such stock as Testimonials, but I feel so forcibly the great adaptability of your "Enamel
Paint" to the wants of our people, in excellency of material, in beauty of color, and it
the fact of its being "ready mixed", that I give you free pertaission, (if it is desirable tc
you,) to make what use you think proper of this letter.
Very respectfully and truly, S. McGILL, M. D.
BALTIOrE, December 10th, 1872.
M&. C. P. K%IGHT, EsQ.-DEA&R Sin : It affords nie muchi pleasure to say to you thal
the Bradley Patent Enamel Paint far exceeds my expectation in economy and beauty,
and I have every reason to believe, in durability. More than twelve months since, .
painted the roof of my (Hotel Mansion House) with the Bradley Patent Enamel Paint,
and I was so well pleased with it, I determined to paint the outside of the flotel, and - ain
most happy to say it gives me perfect satisfaction. Ii conclusion I will say, if this testi
monial will be of any advantage to.you, you are at liflerty to use it.
Yours most respectfully, ISAAC ALBERTSON,
Mansion House Hotel, N. W. Cor. Fayette and St. Paul Streets, Baltimore.
To Tnz PUaLIC.-It affords me much pleasure to state that in July, 1871, Front
Street Theatre was painted inside and out with "Bradley's Patent Enaiel Paint," for
which C. P. Knight, No. 93 West Lombard Street, is agent, at.d t testify to its superior
ity over any and all other paints for similar uses. In no private dwelling can paint possi
bly be subjected to the very severe test it undergoes at this establishment. where, during
our daily cleaning, soap and soda are constantly applied to it, and yet it appears as sound
and fresh as when first put on. Of the numerous advantages it possesses over other
paints, I will only mention its being mixed and ready for use in quantities to suit pur
chasers; its quickly drying properties, which saves much time in the execution of work
where paint is needed, and its very perceptible tenacity, which imparts beauty and dura
bility to the objects on which it is used. As such I most earnestly recommend it to the
merchants and tradesmen of our city, believing it will give them greater satisfaction than
they can possibly anticipate. WNf. E. SINN,
Baltimore, April 25, 1872. Front Street Theatre.

Ma. C. P. KNIGIT-DEAR SiR: The paints we received from you have been applied
to several of our own buildings and to those of our 1riends, and have given entire satis
faction in covering qualities, in glons, and in adaptability to all kiids of surface of mate
rial, and we cheerfully recommend it, especially to that class of consumers who have to
depend upon unknown parties, or painters, to mix and furnish materials, wherein we have
found the most deception.

C. P. KNIGHT, EsQ.- Agent for Bradley's Patent Enanel Paint, B.dtimore-DEAR SIR:
The paint which I purchased from you has given entire satisfaction, so much so that all
my neighbors intend to follow my example, and have their houses painted. It is not on
ly durable and cheap, but it looks better after it is put on than any paint I ever saw. The
painter I have employed is delighted with it. le says that lie can paint twice as fast,
and at the same time do a better job, with the Enamel paint, tha7 any other paint he
ever used. I can therefore withouthesitation recommend it to the public as one of the
very best articles of paint ever introduced.
Youre, very truly, JAMES IIALL.
BE.L A In, MAUYArtJ), March 4th 1872.
Ma. C. P. KSIGBT-DEAR. Sin: I have been using, since last spring, Bradley's Patent
Enamel Paint, and am happy to say that it gives entire satisfaction wherever I have used
it, and to parties to whom I'have furnished it for other painters to -use. Mr. John J.
Street, who lives inear Clermont Mills, to whom I furnished the Bradley Paint last fall, is
much pleased with it, and gives permission to use his name in recommending so good a
paint. S. B. Montague, painter, agrees with me as to thme durability of your most excel
lent paint. I hope parties who have painting to do will look to their advantage and apply
Bradley's Patent Enamel Paint, which is the most durable paint now in use. It holds its
gloss longer than any other paint that I have ever usid.
Yours, truly, E. C..GA RRETTSON, House and Sign Painter.
C. P. KEXGsT, Esq.--DEAR Sin: I have used Bradley's Patent Enamel Paint on my
dwelling last Spring, and am much pleased with it, and it looks as well now as when first
painted, and consider it a-good Paint. -Yours, truly,
