SCiENCE IN FARMING.
We have much poor land in the
UnitedsStates, and an immense
area of good land. The poor
land will be'used to grow timber,
or be improved by converting more
or less of it, gradually, into pasture,
and stocking it with sheep and cat.
t- tle. The main point is, to feed the
. sheep or cattle with some rich
nitrogenous food, such as cotton
" seed cake, malt sprouts, bran,
shorts, mill-feed, refuse beans, or
bean-meal made from beans injured
by,the weevil, or bug. In short,
the owner of such land m'ust buy
such food as will furnish the most
nutriment. and make the richest
manure at the least cost-taking
both of these objects into conmider.
ation. He will also buy more or
les artificial manures, to be used
for the prodapton of fodder crops,
such as corn, -millet, Hungarian
grass, etc. And -as soon as a por
tion of the land can be made rich
enough, he will grow more or less
mangel wurzels, sugar beets, tur
nips, and other root crops. Super
y hosphate will be found admira
; t&y adapted for this purpose, and
Awo, three, or four hundred pounds
of cheep potash salts, per acre, can
frequently be used on fodder crops,
in connection with two or three
hundred pounds of superpho3phate,
with considerable profit. The
whole subject is well worthy of
careful study. Never in the history
of the world has there been a gran
der opportunity for the application
of science to the improvement of
agriculture than now.
On the richer lands, the aim of
the farmer will. be to convert the
plant food lying dormant in the
soil into profitable crops. The
main point is good tillage. In
many cases weeds now run away
with half our crops and all our
profits. The weeils which spring
up after the grain crops are har
vested, are not an unmixed evil.
They retain the nitrogen and
other pfant food, and when tarned
under make manure for the succeed
- ing crops. But weeds among the
growing crops are evil, and only
SeviL Thorough plowing is the
- remedy, with drainage where need

PAr.LEY I WrmTn.-It is very
eayto have a supply of parsley
aH winter. Take up the plants
from the garden, cut off al] but a
ew small leaves at the centre of
the tuit, and plant them in a box.
of good soil. Another method is,
to take a keg-a nail keg will an
*swer; bore numerous inch or inch
and-a-half holes in its sides. Place
$' the parsley with the crown at the
~;holes and the roots extending hor
isoataHly into the keg, gradually
S filling in with earth to hold them
in place. Finish by planting some
roats upright at the top. Either
-bxor keg, if supported at -a kitch
en window and watered as.needed,
will give o supply of fresh leaves
all winter. The residents of cities
who have no gardens, can buy
parsley for this purpose in the
markets,as it is usually sold with
the roots attached, Those who
are fond of parsley as a seasoning,
and do not care to be at the tron
ble of raisingit as above, may dry
it readily and find it about as geod
as fresh. Spread the leaves thinly
on a pan; when the stove oven is
not very hot, place this in it, and
leave tbe door open. The parsley
will dry very quickly; as soon as i.
as crisp,*rub it between the hands
into a powder, which is to be kept
in bottleE, tightly closed.-Ameri

it will pray to spend a half day
going through the -fields to see
how many vacant spaces there are
where seed has failed to come or
has been destroyed by birds or in
sects, and dropping into such spots
a hill of bgns or squashes, or a
few turnip seeds or cabbage plants.
Such stolen crops are often a sac
cess if properly looked after, and
help to pay the interest and taxes
on the land, which the lying idle
will not do.

THE NEW AGRICVLTURAL
At 2 o'clock p. i., the first visitor
showed up at the door of the office,
and Dyre co-dially invited him in
side. The farmer entered hesita
tingly andremarked that he had
expedted to meet the proprietor,
with whom he had an appointment
to discuss ensilage.
"I am in charge of the Journal,"
"Oh, you are. Well, you seem
to have a pretty office here.'
"Yes," r3plied Dyke. "But
about the ensilage. Ensilage is
pretty good breed, in'st it?"
"Breed!" exclaimed the farmer,
"I mean it's a sure crop, some
thing that you can reply-"
"Crop! Why it isn't a crop at
"Yes, yes I know it isn't a crop,"
said Dyke, prespiring until his-col
lar began to melt away down the
back of his neck," but you can do
better and cleaner witn a good
sharp ensilage on stubby ground,
"Take it for a stubby plow, do
"No, no," said Dyke. "You
don't seem to understand me.
Now, if a farmer builds an ensilage
on low ground-" .
"Builds an ensilage! You seem
to have got the thing mixed. up
with some kind of grainary."
"Pshaw, no," continued Dyke.
"I must make myself plainer. You
see this ensilage properly mixed
with one part guano and three
parts hypophosphate of antimony,
with the addition of a little bran
and tanbark, and the whole flavored
with chloride of lime, makes a top
dressing for strawberry beds
"Why ensilage isn't no manure."
"No, certainly not," said Dyke.
"I know it is not often used in that
way. You don't catch my drift.
When I said top dressing I meant
turkey dressing-stuffing you know
"Great heavens, man! Ensilage
isn't a human food."
"No, not a human food exactly."
said poor Dyke, grinning like an
alshouse idiot, "it isn't food at
all in the true sense of the word
My plan has always been to lasso
the hog with a trace chain, and
after pinning his ears back with a
clothespin, put the ensilage into
his nose with a pair of tweezers."
"My good lands! You don't use
ensilage to ring hogs?"
The farmer slowly rose, and
with some evidence of rheumatic
wings in his legs.
"Young man," he said solemnly,
"you are a long ways from home,
"Yes," replied Dyke, dropping
his eyes beneath the stern glances
of the farmer. -"In my ancestral
halls in England sad eyed retain
ers wearily watch and wait for my

Messrs. Iiscox & Co., call especial atten
tion to the fact that after April 16, 1883, the
name and style of this preparation will here
after be simply "Parker's Tonic." The word
"Ginger" is dropped for the reason that un
principled dealers are constantly deceiving
their patrons by substituting inferior prepa
rations under the name of Ginger ; and as
ginger is an unimportant flavoring ingredient
in our Tonic, we are sure that our friends
will agrce with us as to the propriety of the
change. There "will be no change, however,"
in the preparation itself; and all bottles re
