FARMERS1 CARE OF FOWLS.
There is probably no other inter
est on the farm so generally neg
lected as that of poultry: It is a
common phrase among farmers
that "chickens can scratch for a
living," and this comprises about
all the care they receive. Sum
mer or winter, rain or sunshine,
cold or warm, in all kinds of
weather they are left to take care
of themselves, gaining a precari
ous living, roosting on trees,
fences, the mangers or racks in
the stable ; they are merely suf.
fered as a nuisance, rather than
cared for as they should be. In
our cold winter months, for want
of proper shelter, combs and wat
tles are frozen, and feet are often
lost from the effects of the ex
treme cold. If we were to accuse
our farmer friends of cruelty, they
would open their eyes in innocent
surprise. But is it not downright
cruelty to allow your fowls to go
through our long cold winters
without proper care or shelter ?
How much do the poor birds suf
fer before they. lose combs, wat
ties and feet ? The trouble is not
that any are intentionally guilty
of cruelty. But the old "scratch
for themselves" adage has been
so long and persistently taught
that men believe in it and act ac
cordingly. The care of the fowls
is a thing never thought of, and
the idea of providing comfortable
quarters for them is unheard of.
Then we hear the complaint, "we
get no eggs." "Here are one hun
dred hens eating more than they
are worth, and we do not get eggs
enough to keep us going at the
house." This may be all true, but
think for a moment of the care
you have given them. They are
simply paying you in your own
coin, and even then arc no doubt
doing better by far than you have
done by them.
Perhaps fowls in the farm-yard
suffer more for want of pure water
in winter than from any other
cause. In the summer they usually
get plenty and do well enough,
but in our cold climate, wvhen
springs and brooks are frozen solid.
when tanks and swill pails are no
longer available, then their daily
allowance is entirely cut off, and
often for w eeks, and even months,
they do not get a drop of water.
They eat snow when it is to be
had, and they could do nothing
worse, for this has the singular
quality of making them poor, and
they should never be aiiowed-itv
eat it. If they are supplied with
water, they will not eat snow.
This treatment, with very little
variation and a few exceptions, is
the rule amongr farmers. The re
sult is that millions of fbowls die
annually of that scourge of poul-'
try-the cholera. 'Years ago'the
cholera was dreaded -as a -most
fearful plague among the human
family. Towns and cities were de
vastated by its ravages ; but of
late years, by cleaning out the
cesspools of filth in the cities, and
by the proper measures, it has
lost its terrors.
Here lies the great remedy for
chicken cholera-cleanliness and
proper care. This will do more to
rid the country of this plague than
all the patent nostrums in exis
tence. With a very little outlay
of money and time you can build
a good comfortable house for your
fowls. Let it face the south, with
windows to give light and warmth
when the sun shine.s. Spend an
hour each day in feeding, water
ing and caring for your fowls. Re
move all the droppings every day
or two, preserving them carefully
in aheap ; your American guano
will repay you for all the care and
feed you give your fowls. Keep
your house clean and well ven
tilated and you will have a plenti
~ ~f ~r~rtc in wint~r~RI
KEEP AN ACCOUNT.
It is a very good plan for far
mers to keep a strict account of
their labor. We know very well
that tho majority -of people dis
ike to be faced down by columns
of figures, when the sum total
shows a decided balance against
them; but if accounts are kept,
the result will be that greater
economy will be practiced in the
long run, and that efforts will be
made on every hand to make the
balance favorable. This is the
time of the year to begin. Thefrst
thing you ought to do is to mL.ke
an inventory of everything you
have. Make it carefully and valu.
all your property. Let it include
your acres, hcuses, utensils, stock,
machinery of every description,
as well as notes and all other
monetary matters. If there are
any incumbrances on your proper
ty, put them down. Then make
up your estimate of operations
for the coming year, and start out
with the determination to live up
to it. As the year progresses set
down all your sales and purchases,
of every description ; don't let a
cent of expense or income escape.
Your family expenses should have
a separate place in the book, so
that they may be footed into the
general result at the close of the
year, and still be so distinct as to
show for themselves what it costs
to clothe yourself, wife and chil
dren, and to afford them amuse
ments and general pleasures. You
will find, in keeping your account
of income, that it is a good plan to
run each field separate, so that
you can, at the close, see at a
glance what your profit or loss has
been on each. Keep dates of times
when fields were plowed, how
they were cultivated, and what
the labor on each has cost. This
*ill teach the farmer in a short
time which crops are most profit
able. In stock, keep a particular
record of each animal, with pedi
gree, birth and other remarks of
interest. Keep, as wvell, a general
diary of events on the farm for fu
You will find plenty of time in
wbich to attend to these thiings,
Keeping an account will take but
a few minutes each day, and when
you have once begun, you will be
surprised to see how -easily it can
be done. There is one great point
to be kept in view always, and
that is, to never run in debt. Shun
debt as you would the fire. Strive
to livo within your means, and
yo,~u will have a net result when
yoi balance your books at the
ldse of' the year that will surprise
and make you glad.
BUDDING RoSES.-This is a sim
ple process by which amateur cul
tivators can increase their stock.
A sar.p penknife can do duty for
budding knife, and the handle of
toothbrush, -if groundr down
smooth, will answer for a spund
o aid in lifting the bark. From
the last of June to the last of
August is the best time for this
process, as the bark can then be
more easily raised from the wood.
Take a smooth stalk and make a
horizontal cut across the bark,
throsh to the wood, buaan&t
into it. From the centre of
this -cross-cut make another cut
straight down the stem, an inch
or more in length. These two
outs will resemble a T. Slice off1
the bud you desire to propagate
with one cut of the pernknife, cut
ting it close to the main stalk.
N~ow with the edge of the spud i
turn back the bark on each side of
the straight cut and insert the
bd on the wood of the branch
to be budded, fitting it tightly to
the crossed cut. With a bit of4
soft yarn bind down the bark,1
eaving the point of the bud ex
posed. A handful of dampened
moss must then be bound round
the stem, taking care to leave the I
tiny point of the bud exposed to z
the air. In six weeks the rap
pings may be removed but all other
shoots must be kept from growing
n the budded branch. By this.

Avn' PILLs have been known frto
more than a quarter of a century, and Ex
have obtained a world-wide re'putation t
for their virtues. They correct dis-: p.s
eased action in the several assimila

evade them. Not only do they cure the
the every-day complaints of' every
