Be sure and take good care of your
timber, for it will be in great demand
some day, and you ought to leave at
least twenty-hve acres. Don t run
your land so close; you ought not to
cultivate more than once ni.four years,
and then manure what you do cultivate:
hw more clover and other fertilizers.
This is all good advice, as you know,
if you will but carry it into practice.
Never rnind if your land don't hold
out, your friend is better in figures
than you. Now for theestimate: your
thirty acres of grass will yield at least
two tons per acre if your land is good,
if not you can easily make it so with a
few wagon loads of manure and that
would bo sixty tons, for which you
can readily realize from 10 to 15 per
ton: hut say S10, that would be 600.
Well, if you will manure well your
twenty-five acres of wheat, you will
get at least twenty bushels per acre,
which would lie five hundred bushels,
which you can safely estimate at 1,00
per bushel, making 500 for your
hvheat. All of you farmers sow wheat
too late. You ought to sow in cep-
tembcr. W.ell you can raise at least
forty bushels of oate per acre. Eight
hundred acres will be the product, you
ean put that at 50 cents per bushel,
S100. Your fifteen acres of corn will
make you six hundred bushels, and
that at 50 cents per bushel would be
S300 more. A sum total of $1,590.

A Scrap Book.
Every farmer should keep a book in
which to paste agricultural scraps.
Every one in reading a paper will see
tilings wnicn ne win wish to remember.
He will perhaps see suggestions the
value of which he will desire to test, or
hints which he will want to be governed
oy m luture operations. And vet. af
ter reading the paper, he will throw it
down, and will probably never see it
again. In such a case all the valuable
articles will be lost. To prevent such a
loss, every reader should clip from the
papers such articles as he desires to pre
serve, and paste them in a scrap book.
Such a book, at the end of a year or
two, wul be interesting and valuable.

Farmers in Debt.
The Southern papers are discanting
On the rum sure to follow getting in
debt, to carry on farming operations.
One farmer, who stopped asking and
giving credit, a few years ago, records
it as his experience that he can now
buy more than lie ever bought before,
and sell more. This case is mentioned
of the French, who never got in debt,
ana who. having been savincr monev
since the days of the First Napoleon,
nave become the richest nation in the
world; which is provpn by the fact that
the German indemnity of a thousand
millions of dollars which they were ob
liged to pay was all discharged in two
years,, while we have been struggling
for nine years with twice as much.
Perhaps the wealth of the French far
mers arises as much from the small
farm system and the high cultivation
they give the soil, lhere is a vast
difference between farming in a loose
way and having all the work done in
the best manner.
Farmers' Clubs or Granges.
Encourage these. Do not grow
lukewarm as their novelty wears off.
If you do not belong to one, join one.
It there is none in your vicinity, go to
work to raise one. Call on a few of
your live farmers to join you; discuss
it, put your plans into operatian, and
go ahead. i

THE ART JOURNAL OF AMERICA, '

A MAGNIFICANT CONCEPTION WON
DERFULLY CARRIED OUT.
The necessity of a popular medium, forth
representation of the productions of our great
artists has always been recognised, and. many
attempts bare bees made to. meet the, want
The suceessire failures which hTe so invariably
followed each attempt is this country to. estab

the want and an ability to meet it wtr shown,
the public at once rallied with enthusiasm to
its snpporVend the' result warfs rreat artistic
and commercial triumph THE ALDINE.
ineAiaine wniie issued with all of the regu
larity, has none of the temporary or ttn7y .in
terests characteristic of ordinary periodicals.
It Is an elegant miscellany of pare,, light, snd
graceful literature, and a collection of pictures,
the rarest collection of artistic skill, fa black
and white. Although each succeeding number
affords a fresh pleasure to its friends, the" real
value and beauty ot The Aldlne will be' most
appreciated after it is bound up at the close of
the year. While ether publications may claim
superior cheapness, as compared with rivals ef
a similar class. The Aldlne is a unique and
original conception alone and unapproached

The national feature of The' ATdJncTmust be
taken in no narrow sense. True art Is 'cosmo
politan. While The Aldlne Is a strictly Ameri
ran institution. It does not eonSne Itself to"the
peproduetion of native art- Its minion ls to
cultivate a broad and appreciative art taste.ona
that will discriminate on groundsof Intriiiiio
merit. Thus, while plea'dingbeiiire the patron
ofTheAldine, as a leading characteristic, the
productions of the moslnotcd American artists,
attention will always be given to specimens
from forefgn masters, gi ring sobwibers all tho
pleasure and Instruction obtainable from noma
or foreign sources -
The artistic illustration of American scenery,
original with The Aldlne it an 'important fea
ture, and its magniScent -plates are of a' lire
more appropriate to; the satisfaetorjitreatment
of details than can be.afforded. bj .any inferior
page: The Judicious interspersion of landscape,
marine, Sgure -and" a-nimil subjects, sustain an
unabated iatertit,, impotsibletwhersVtis scope
of the work confines the .artist too closely to a
single "style of subject." The literature of The
Atdine is a ligh'f and graceful accompaniment,
worthy of the artistic, features, with only-such
technical disouieitiocwas do not interfere with
the popular interest of the work. r ,
