[From the American Agriculturist.]
FARM WORK FOR JANUARY.
How Do You STa'D ?-One can
not lay out his work to advantage,
without knowing precisely how he
stands with regard to his business.
The beginning of the year is the
, appropriate time for ascertaining it
Frequently an account of business
is kept for a month or two, and
then neglected. If it is only to en
courage habits of regularity and
perseverance, it will be time well
spent to keep an account, not only
of money affairs, but a record of
events for every day. This tends
to beget promptness and system in
every detail of farm work, and it
business affairs, that foresight and
economy which are everywhere the
. prime essentials to success.
K A REOn of the events of
each day's work, and farm-life. One
of the boys or girls should do this.
A book will be needed, ruled with
plain lines, on which to make the
entries; put down the condition of
the weather, the work done, and
by whom ; purchases and sales
made, indeed, anything that may
be needed for future reference, or
that should be entered in the ac
count book, which will thus become
a valuable and interesting record of
MAxz AN INvENTORY :-Put down
everything you possess, from the
farm itself, to the small tools and
utensils, and value each item fairly.
Enter the money on hand, and also
every debt owed. This is the first
work in beginning an account.
The property owned, and the money
on hand, will be on one side of the
account, and the debts on the other.
The balance will show just how~
the farmer stands. This account
will be the Account of BStoec.
PEaH&sPs aian SALEs, are entered
in the daily record, and from that
into a purchase and sale book ; ex
cept the cash transactions, which
go into the cash book.
THE CAsH BooK.-Every payment
and receipt of money for purchases,
sales, or for wages, should be en
tered in the cash book; this should
be done every evening, and before
it is forgotten ; all these entries are
transferred to a ledger to the pro
per sccounts. The work is very
simple and easy, and there are far
mer's girls who keep all their fa
ther's accounts in the most accu
rate manner. Fuller directions for
keeping farm accounts, were given
in the American Agriculturist for
January and February, 1879.
Ume MEN.--A farmer should
try to mxake work for ahired man,
or several if possible. If he can
find profitable work for them, he is
making money for himself. A few~
months wages spent in procuring
or making manure, draining, clear
ig off stone, getting out stumps,
or otherwise making the farm more
productive, will be well invested.
KmE THE STRT.E OLEAN! ; clear
out the manure every morning, and
scrape or card off all filth from the
animals. The stable should be
made so warm, that the manure will
not freeze at night ; a lower tern
perature will either demand a larger
amount of food, or the animals will
fall off in condition.
CUT Ta LrnEam.-If the litter ic
cut into 3-inch lengths, or even
smaller, it will hold more moisture,
will make better and finer manure,
and will keep the animals cleanex
than long litter. The gain in the
quality of the manure, in one year,
the saving in time in the handling,
and increased effectiveness of it.
will pay good interest on the cost
of a windimill, and a fodder cutter,
to do the cutting. But if the stormy
and disagreeable days are chosen to
cut up straw for this purpose, an
abundant supply can be made.
A broad axe can be purchased for
$2.50, and with this and a block, a
sheaf of straw may be cut into 3
straw can be procured, these make
excellent litter and manure.
Ecoo31 n FEEDING, is a very ?m
portant consideration. In some
cases half the feed used is wasted.
Cutting the fodder has proved a
saving of one-third to one-half.
Where but 10 head of stock are fed
if the feed of one-third or one-half
can be saved, it is simply a large
increase of the resources of the
farm, and is sufficient to pay the
cost of a good cutter and the
time expended in cutting.
WATERING STocK.-The supply of
water in winter is a source of trou
ble. Ice gathers about the troughs
and other drinking places ; pipes
freeze and burst, or become choked,
and many other inconveniences oc
cur. These may be avoided by
methodical management. Have reg
ular watering periods, twice a day.
Fill the troughs from the pumps or
cisterns, and drive the cattle
to them and see that they drink.
When all are supplied, empty
the troughs and either cover them
or turn them over. Have nc
flowing water in the yards to
waste and freeze, or become ice
cold for drinking. A cold drink
will reduce the milk from the cows
10 per cent. or more.
WHEN TO APPLY MANusE.-The
common practice among farmers is
to make a general clearing, of the
yards and barn cellars once a year,
either in the spring or fall. Either
practice makes a heavy draft upon
the teams, and it has its disad
vantages. If this work is done in
the spring, it is when the ground is
soft, and other work exceedingly
pressing. If the manure is drawn
out in the fall, and dropped in
heaps upon the field to be cultivated
next season, there is more or less
waste by leaching and by evapora
tion. There is a growing disposi
tion among our intelligent farmers
to apply manure directly to grow
ing crops, or as near the time of
planting and sowing as possible.
It is felt that the sooner manure is
put within reach of the roots of
plants, the better for the crops and
their owner. Manure is so much
capital invested, and bears interest
only as it is consumed'in the soi].
The barn cellar may be so managed
as to manufacture and turn out fer
tilizers every month in the year,
so that the farmer may suit his
convenience in applying them to
the soil. When manure is not
wanted for cultivated crops, it is
always safe to apply it to the grass
crop, either in pastures or upon
meadows after mowing. Top-dress
ing is growing in favor with our
intelligent farmers. Grass pays
better than almost any farm crop
in the older States, and the spread
ing of compost saves the necessity
of frequent plowing and seeding.
By top-dressing at any convenient
season of the year, fields may be
kept profitably in grass for an in
Wnima LErucE.-Lettuce is one
of the few vegetables that one
might have the whole year-and we
think it is eaten with a better relish
in the winter and early spring than
at any other time. The system
seems then to demand variety and
change-when the cold is relaxing,
the days lengthening, and the
warmth increasing. Every family
that has a little garden spot can
enjoy the luxury with very little
trouble. All that is necessary is to
build a frame of coarse boards,
cover it with a closely-fitting glass
sash, and place it in a sunny spot
-somewhat protected. In this,
plant the lettuce-sets, about six
inches apart, in good ground, and
keep them properly watered. They
will grow all winter,,land in the
early spring will form beautiful
large heads to encourage the appe
tite and agrace the table. The ear
lier in the autumn this operation is
begun the better. The Brown
Dutch and Hammersmith Hardy
Green are the best varieties for
winter use. The seeds should be
sown in September, and are so
hardy that if planted in a sheltered
situation and protected by a loose
covering of straw and evergreen
boughs, they will stand the winter
well. If transplanted in a cold
frame, as suggested above, they
will do better and produce more
tender, delicate, and larger heads.
As a preventive and a remedy for
many of the diseases to which do
mestic fowls are liable when living
under wrong conditions too much
can hardly be said in favor of
onions for fowls. They should be
chopped up fine, and the fowls given
all they will at up clan. We prefer

I'E SUN FOR 1880.
THE SUN will deal with the events of the
'ear 1850 in its own fashion, now pretty well
mihtierstood by everybody- From January
I rutil I)ecember 31 it w ill be conducted as
i newspaper, written in the English lan
uuge. and printed for the people.
As a newspaper, TIIE tN believes in get
Ling all th: news of the world promptly, and
presenting it in the most intelligible shape
-the shape that will enable its readers to
keep well abreat of the age with the least
hmprod uctive expenditure of tine. The
.reate.t interest to the greatest iumber
that is. the law controlling its d tily make
[p. It now has a circulation very much
at--or than that of any other American
newspaper, and enjoys an income which it
is at all times prepared to spend liberally
for t he benefit of its readiers. People of all
monditions of life and all ways of thinking
buy and read THE SUN ; and they all derive
?atistaction of some sorl from its columns.
for they keep on buying and reading it.
In its comments on men and affairs, THE
tt believes that the only guile of policy
houIl be conmmon sense, insl>ireti by gen
uine American principles and backed by
lhonsty of purpose. F:,r this reason it is.
inl will continue to be. absolutely inde
pen dent of party, class, clique, organization,
>r interest. It is for all. Nut of none. It will
continue to praise what is good and repro
bate what is evil, taking care that its lan
guage is to the point and plaiu, beyond the
possibility of being misunderstood. It is
unintluenced by motives that do not up
pear on tie surice; it has no opinions to
ell. save those which may be had by any
purchaser with two cents. It hates in
justice and rascality even more than it hates
unnectessary words. It abhors frauds. pities
iols. and deplores nincomnpoops of every
species. It will continue throughout the
wcar i"40 to chastise the first class. instruct
the second, and discountenance the third.
All honest men, with honest -onvictions,
whether sound or niisthken, are its friends.
And TIIE SUN makes no bones of telling the
truth to its friends and about its friends
whenever occasion arises for plain speak
These are the principles upon which THE
SUN will be conducted during the year to
The year 1S80 will be one in which no pa
triotic American can altord to close his eyes
to public affairs. It is impossible to exag
gerate the importance of the political even.s
which it has in store, or the necessity of r.
solute vigilance ,i the part of every citizen
who desires to preserve the Government
that the founders gtave us. The debates and
acts of Congress,the utterances of the press,
the exciting contests of the Republican and
Democratic parties now nearly equal in
strength throughout the country. the vary
ing irift of public sentiment, will all bear
directly and effectively upon the twenty
fourth Presidential election, to be held in
November. Four years ago next November
the will of the nation, as expressed at the
polls, was thwarted by an abominable cCn
spiracy, the promoters and beneficiaries of
which still hold the oflices they stole. Will
the crime cf 1876 be repeated in 1880 ? The
past decade of years opened with a corrupt,
extravagent, and insolent Adninistration
intrenehed at Washington. ThE SUN did
something toward dislodging the gang and
breaking its power. The same rien are now
intriguing to restore their leader and them
selves to places from which they were driv
en by the indignation of the people. Will
they succed? The coming year will bri.ng
the answers to these monentous. THE SUN
will be on hand to chronicle the facts as
they are developed, and to exhibit them
clear'y and fearlessly in their relations to
expediency and right.
Thus, with a habit of philosophical good
humor inlooking at the mainor affairs of
life, and in great things a steadfast purpose
to maintain the rights of the people and
the principles of the Constitution against all
aggressors, THE SUN is prepared to write a
truthful, instructive, and at the same time
entertaining history of 1580.
