SWEET POTATO CULTURE.
Mr Freeman CGary, in giving his
experience in sweet potato culture t
before the Cincinnati Horticultu- i
ral Society, said:
Last year I cultivated twenty
acres in sweet potatoes; but this
year I will have but fifteen. I
grow the plants by artifici:n. heat,
raise an arch of sheet iron over
which I construct a chamber, fill
with soil three inches deep, upon
which place the tubers, and then
cover with soil to the same depth. t
More plants can be produced with
this kind of a hot bed raised to
ninety degrees, than by manure. I
I get from- four to. six thousand v
plants from a bushel of seed. The i
_p)auts should be allowed to grow! I
until they b, gin to vine, as they
become more hardy. and will stand I
I allow my ground to remain
growing weeds until planting time, t
when I plough choosing that con
dition of the soil when it will break
Up the most mellow going only four ,
or five inches deep. I harrow with e
a harrow eleven feet in width,
having seventy-two teeth. Fur
row with a t>arshare plough as for v
corn planting, three and one-half c
feet apart, and throw up into ~
ridges all the intervening soil. If
the weather is dr-y, puddle the1
plants; if not set them out just
as they come from the hot bed;
place them in perpendicular, not
sloping as many do; ress the
-=soil closely ab->ut the plant justa
above the rootlets, and draw some i
loose soil about the plant.u
Use only the hands in planting;e
have nothing to do with paddles
or sticks, or you will leave cavities
about the roots, where the soil I
will not touch them, and they will
-wither or -die. As soon as the C
plants gret well started to grow

young roots are disturbed. In a fews

THE NECESs1TY OF CRASS CUL
TU;RE.-The cultivation of grasses
and forage'plants is an indipensa- ~
*ble attribute of prosperity. Why
are the lands of Kentucky and Ohio
so much more~ valuable than these K
of the cotton states, when we can
produce a commercial article of.
prime uiccessity worth twice as much
per acre as their products ? It is
because we disregard rotation, ex- I
clude every c.aher crop but cotton
and base all our chances of success_
upon a single card. In an ag icu
tural point of view grass is thee
greatest boon ever donated to man- a
It grows unceasing!y day and night,
wet and dry, cold and hot, and I
furnishes the cheapest stock feed I
extant. I have had hogs from It
seven to nine mnonths old, weighing,
230 pounds, and yet they had 1
never tasted anything but grass.
The land should be well drained, j
and if not sufficiently rolling to
drain naturally, it must beC done
artificially. Water must, under
no circumstances, be permitted to
stand on land devoted to grass cul-j
ture, else the grasses sown will be
destroyed in such places, and( "wire
grass" will furnish a substitute as C

s, however, to thoroughly prepare
Jhe land as above (lescribed ; the

hould only be used when better
,reparation cannot be obtained.
PUTTIN Tiixus AwAY.-Do wo
nen ever thiuk how much time they
Iped in picking up and putting away?
)f course we do not mean to intimate
hat it is wasted. or that all this work
s done unnecessarily. Women have
vast amount of such work to per
rm, and few wen realize its extent,
r its necess!y until sonic accident or
ircumstances brings it home to
A married man said once, that he
1"ever realized the 'amount of work
lone in bringing things out and put
ing them away, until hc happened to
it idly watching the oper-tion of set
ing the table-"getting tea," as it
ras called, at a neighbor's house, wash
ng the dishes and clearing them away.
t struck him, for the first time, how
auch real labor had to be done in lift
ng and carrying between table and
antry and he determined to lessen
uch labor in his house as much as
0ossible, by constructing a kitchen in
is house with every facility and con
enience. He thought, with a sort of
onsternation, if one "tea" requires
hat amount of labor, what must
he work of a house fRr a lifetime
ount to ? A very pretty problem
rhich we should like to have auswer
It is a fact, however, that "putting
ings .away" becomes a sort of mania
rith some neat housewives, and not
ly gives them a #vast amount of
rouble. but sours their temper, and
3a source of annoyance to every mem
er of the family. From a habit prob
bly of being upon one spot all the
ie, eternally seeing and doing the
ae things. it becomes a.sort of ma
iia, and is ini fact a symptom of dis-.
ase. We think a good plan, in such
case, would be, for the husband to
usist on his wife taking a journey,
aaking a visit home, or spending a
ouple of weeks at a watering place.
'he change of scene, the breaking up
f the monotony of life would do her
world of good. 11cr ideas would be
onie enlarged ; her thoughts travel
ut of their accustomed routine, and
hen she returned she would take up
ife less as a burden, and more as a bas
:et of flowers, from which it is possi
le to extract beauty and fragrance.
SoILNG.-A correspondent of
he Practical Farmer gives an ac
ount of what lie produced from
wo and a half acres of land, put
a first-rate order, and used for
oiling and root growing. The land
ras used from August 1, 1871, to
he end of the season of 1874:
The corn fodder, green rye (for
utumnn use) and white mustard,
urnished food for twenty-five cows
nd two oxen for one month. In
ddition to this he raised 480
uhels of round turnips, the same
uantity of beets, 250 bushels ruta
agas. When dairymen learn to
roduce such an amount of fodder
o an acr'e, a fifty-acre farm will
arry as many cows as 200 acres
.nder the wasteful system of three
o four acres to pasture a cow. If
airymen would study the best
ethod, supporting more cows on
heir small farms, instead of buy
og more land to be spoiled by half
ilage, they would make an imi
>rovment in the right direction.
GIRLS FOR FARM BOOK KEEPERS.
-An old farmier says:

ounts, sir; and she is as systematic
nd particumlar as ever my son was,

A PLAGUE OF RATS.-A Rangoor
correspondent o f t he Londor
Times writes to that journal as fol
lows: While Bengal has lately
struggled'tbrough a famine crisis,
the Kurens country, lying on th<
confines of Burmah proper, has
narrowly escaped a crisis of the
same kind, but in this instancc
rats, and not drought were the
cause of the scarcity. It appears
that certain parts of Burmah are
periodic.ally visited by a pla~gue of
rats. Hosts of them march a
cross country, and attack the root~
of the crops and grain in the vil
lages, and actually dri.ve out thc
people and cause whole villages
to be deserted by their depreda
tions. Such a p!iague had appearec
near Toungboo, and some suffering
had arisen in consegnence, but
the government appear to havc
provided food for those in want of
it, and all fear of famine is now~
averted. A forester, but a few
weeks since, as he was going tc
visit the teak forests rented by a1
large firm in Bombay, witnessed
the passage of an army of~ rats as
they crossed the Sittang. Hc
was at that time gliding dowr
stream in his boat. and the boat
man called his attention to a large
black mass swarming down thec
high baniks. They turned out te
be rats, and as- they swam across
the river they kept a kind of mil.
itary formation. IIe represents
their number to have been my.
riads. They passed close to the
boat, and were large field rats.
The late Dr. Mason. in his book
on Burmnah, mentions the plague
they were to the country, but nn
til the depredations had spread
to such a large extent as they did
last year their presence was igno
red. It appears that they gener
ally keep near hilly country, and
