One I'onncI nl Pork Prom Fonr
mid a llnirPoand of Corn.
Several years ugo Prof. J. B. Lmves
obtained 100 pound of pork from sf v-
cn bmheLi of com, or one pound of
pork from four and a half pounds of
corn, lhe gram was ground and
moistened with water before feeding.
A reader of the Herald always com
uieiices fattening in the spring, at which
time a bushel of corn is more valuable
in its results than iu autumn, and con
tinucs a regular course of feeding
throughout the; season.uhe corn is
ground aad ninety pounds of hot wa
ter pouredioa every sixteen pounds of
meal, and utter standing twelve to
eighteen thours. the whole mass be
comes thick feed. He finds by mens
ured experiment that the value of the
corn is fully" doubled by this" process,
as compared with corn fed in the ear,
and 50 percent, better than meal mere
ly mixed with cold water. One
bushel of corn thus prepared, after de
ducting 10 per cent, toll for grinding,
and leaving only fifty-four pounds for
the bushel, will give twenty pounds of
pom, or at the rate ot two and two-
third pounds of corn for each pound of
pork. When pork is hve cents per
pound he obtains at the rate of $1 per
bushel for his corn. The farmer ob
tains by scalding the meal one pound
of pork from two and two-thirds pounds
of corn he gets 50 per cent, less, or
at the-rate af one pound of pork to the
three and three-fourths pounds of meal,
when mixed' merely .with cold water.
which is within less than .half a pound
of the quantity of meal reauired in
Lawes experiments: when the same
kind of feed was used. In his manage
ment there was every advantage of
sound corn, comfortable quarters,
cleanliness, regularity of feeding and
quality oi Dreeamg. n may De well
to state that he has found the best
sound corn double the value of a great
deal that is used when badly grown or

The Necessity orGrass.CHltarc.
The cultivation of grasses and forage
plants is an indispensable attribute of
prosperity. Why are the lands of
hentuckyVanduhio 'bo much more val
uable than those of the cotton stated
when we can produce a commercial ar
ticle of prime necessity worth 'twice as
much per acre as their products? It is
because we disregard rotation, exclude
every other crop but cctton and base
all our chances of success upon a sin
gle card. In an agricultural point of
view grass is tne greatest boon ever
donated to man. It grows unceasingly
oar and night, wet and dry. cold and
hot, andiuraishes the cheapest stock

and if not sufficiently rolling to drain
naturaiiy, it musi De- done artmcially.
"Water must, under ao, circumstances.
be permitted to stand on land devoted
to grass culture, else the grasses sown
will be destroyed in such places, and
"wire grass" will furnish a substitute
as unprofitable as it is undesirable.
The proper preparation of the land is
of prime importance. I would use a
one-horse turning plow, running at a
depth of three to four inches, follow
with a subsoil as deep as the best double
team could draw the same, harrow
well and thoroughly pulverize the soil
uy roning or aragging as may be nec
essary in order that the surface may be
smooth and adapted to the use of the
mower. This preparation is not alto
gether, necessary; m feet, clover sown
in the fall or early winter is more cer
tain to catch when sown on stubble, the
trash serving to protect it while young,
yet this is not neat farming, and should
De practiced only in cases of emergency.
Occasionally we have wet weather in
August and September," and grass can
then be sown in corn or cotton, and by
Christmas a good-pasture may be ob-
boiuju, putiucu mc grounu is not too
wet for pasturage at that time. The
most preferable method is. however.
to thoroughly prepare the land as above
described; the exceptions to the gen
eral ruie snouia only be used when
better preparations cannot be obtained.
For Ike Far mcr'H Wife.
One of the greatest troubles of the
neat and orderly housewife in the coun
try results from muddy boots of those
members ot the lamily who have to
work in the fields, stables and the
barn-yard. The wet boots must be
dried, and are generally left under the
jwiicuen stove, where their presence is
very disagreeable. Now, to have a
neat kitchen,, there should be a boot
rack placed behind the stove, in which
me damp boots may be placed to drv.
Such a contrivance lias been found a
great convenience. It has three shelves
about four feet long, ten inches wide,
and placed a foot apart. At one end a
hoot-jack is fixed by hinges so that,
when not in use, "it is folded against
one eud of the rack and secured by a
button. There Is also a stand for
claming boots at the front, which also
folds up when not in use, and the black
ing brushes are placed on the shelves
lehind the f-tand, and are out of sight,
and when folded the' hang down out
of the way. The rack should be made
of dressed pine hoards, and stained
fonie dark, durahleTolor.

The following views on farming
were thrown out by Mr. Greeley in his
speech in Baltimore, nnd they so effect
ually cover the ground of successful
c.ilture tint we give them a place for the
ocneni oi our readers;
1. That the area under cultivation
should be within the limits of the cap-
iiai and labor employed: or in other

words that on impoverished soils no one
should cultivate more land than he can
enrich with manure and fertilizers, be
it one acre or twenty.

from depredating on his neighbor's

. We all have lands not worn out. but
tired down by continual cropping, and
we always have lands that may be said
to be worn out, since they are no longer
prxluctive. We now want the best
and cheapest plan of renovating these
lauds, so as to grow remunerative
crops. To do this, we must have our
lands charged with a good supply of
vegetable matter to make the land live
ly and productive. This can be ob
tained by the turning under of green
crops and aiterwards a judicious rota
tion ot crops: in doing-this, we can on
ly cultivate what lands we can manure
well, or such as have not been exhaus
ted. Let us take the lands in the fall

spring, plow and sow peas about the

The Dignity of Furiniug.
Agriculture has been the chosen oc
cupation of the great and good of every
117 - 1 M I J
age. u amors, pnuosopners, orators,
and statesmen King David, Cato.
Cincinnatus, Kossuth, Garibaldi
Prince Albert, Lafayette and "Wash
ington, all have made her their fa
vorite employment. Poets have sung
her praises from Herod to Virgil, and
down to our own Whittier. The cul
tivation of the earth was the first, the
"heaven-appointed, employment of
mankind." "Agriculture is the moth
er of all wealth."
Benjamin Franklin says: "There are
three ways for a nation to acquire
wealth: First, by war this is robbery:
second, by commerce this is, frequent
ly, cneating; then by agriculture this
is the only honest way whereby a man
receives a real increase of seed thrown
into the ground, in a continual miracle,
w rought by the hand of God in his
favor, as a reward for his innocent li.c
and his virtuous industry." Wash
ington says: "Agriculture is the most
healthful, most useful, and most noble
employment of man.
Yet, notwithstanding the encomiums
of poets, the praise of philosophers,
me example oi tne illustrious and me
fact that agriculture i3 the foundation
of all civilization, it is still an undeni
able fact that in many sections of our
country, the average farmer is shiftless
and ignorant", his farm neglected, and
unattractive, fences rotten, wagons
and tools rickety and rusty, cattle nnd
horses ribbv, and, as might be expec-

One of the most disheartening facts
connected with agriculture, has been
the uuwillingness on the part of too
many ot our tanners to adopt the im
provements of the day. It is said that
wheuJethro Wood introduced the iron
plow-share, the majority of farmers
said, "the old plow is best after all, it
is not so heavy, there is not so much
iron about it to break, and, besides,
the wooden mould board won't rust"
To show what aversion and unreason
ing prejudices exist in many stagnant
agricultural districts against every new
improvement, it is reported that there
are back neighborhoods in our bonth-
em btates, where the plowman stil.
fastens the tails of his cattle to the
plow, unwilling to own that any other
method has equal advantages.
All this is reproach is a wrong
upon the highest industry m exist'
We are glad to know that a new era
is dawning in the agricultural world

thought is becoming the farmer's tute
lary samt; books phamphlets, and pa
pers are now being read and studied,
and literary and intellectual culture
is throwing around his home comforts
and elegance that -by right belong to
his noble labor.

Trellis vs. Stake.

he can make the most with the least
expense honestly Is the right wfty
with him. sict prohtis a potent argu
ment, and it should be. JNow let us
investigate tl.e matter, and see where
the proht is to bo lound. We wit
take one acre of vines trained to stakes,
counting cost and profit. As a stake
is required for each vine, and as we
can't grow the vine to any length, they
are planted closer together, requiring
at least one-Iourth more vines, and
thrice as many stakes', as to plant and
trellis an acre. Of necessity, the vines
and fruit grow in a dense mass, exclu

we are compelled to cut back so short
that the loss in fruit thus sustained is
greater than the additional outlay for
the trellis. Now for. the facts and the
figures. It will take 1,210 vines,
leet apart each way, and as many
stakes to the acre. Vines, at 10 cents
each, amount to g!21; stakes, at
cents each, S60; total, $181. Those 5
cents stakes will last but few years,
and we will say nothing ot the incon
venience ot tvingnnd training to stakes,
but.will pass on to the trellis.- We

The Kind of Pork to Buy.
Pork differs much in the quality ac
cording to the mode of feeding, and it
is always desirable to know who fed the
pig, if possible, before you buy the
meat Butchers are sometime in the
habit of keeping pigs and feeding them
on the- nauseous and decaying offal of
the shambles. It is never sale to buy
your pork from a butcher that feeds
oicrs himself. The farm-house or the
miller's pigs are generally fed whole
somely, and kept clean; and you may
depend on pork or bacon bought di
rectly from them. Pork should not
be fat, the meat should be close in the
grain, and fat and lean should be of a
pinkish white". It is not a very whole
