Kinut in Wheat Cause ami Rem
The above reflections were called to
mind from facts recently told me.
Judge SpotTord and other gentlemen
and ladies of Pulaski were spending
the day, looking at the stock farm, etc.
We had "horse-talk' most of the
time, then farms and farming. The
Judge told: "I (the Judge) have 100
acres in wheat. The seed put upon 07
acre3 was thoroughly soaked in bluc
stone water. My manager, Mr. La
Mave, a most excellent executive of
ficer, seeded 97 acres thus: The blue-
stone water gave out and rather than
go to the country fctore to buy more,
concluded to seed the remaining three
acres "dry so." Result no smut on
the 97 acres, and any quantity of it on
the three remaining acres. Mark you,
it was all sown out of the same bin,
same seed, soil and preparation. Here
is the most conclusive proof as to the
efficiency of bluestone as a prevent
ive. Why does not every one else use
it? The cost is a mere trifle, the result
My neighbor, Ramsey, seeded about
75 acres to wheat on adjoining farm
and in sight of mine. He seeded two
days, when a soaking rain put a stop
to p'owing. After three days he got
impatient could not wait was in a
hurry to get through, so as to pick
cotton. Commenced plowing when
the ground was heavy, too wet. Result
no smut any where in the 75 acres,
except the days plowing when the
ground was too wet. Mark you, there
was no bluestone or other preventive
used ou this occasion but formerly
had been till no smut appeared, and
then dispensed with. From the above
ive learn 1st, That bluestone is a pre
ventive. 2d, That ploughing in when
the land is too wet is a,if not ie,causc.
Both of the above facts were demcn
strated as above same seed.satnc soil,
same culture. I hope the above may
prove useful, if to no one else, at least
to beginners, who need "more light"

Whnt to do with the Hogs.
All the probabilities now arc that
fanners will receive good prices for
their hogs the coming Fall and Win
ter. It is also propable that the prices
for corn will be quite satisfactory. It
is evident that to many farmers it is
important, in a more than usual degree,
to receive as much money as practica
ble from their crops within the next
few months. It i not at all improba
ble that the prices in the early part of
the season will be as high as will be
reached at any time during the Winter.
It is a well-known fact that flesh can lie
put on hogs at less cost in moderate
than in cxtrcmelv cold weather. It is
coming to be generally admitted that
the weight can be increased on young
animals at a less cost than on older
Looking at all these facts and prob
abilities, it seems to us it will be wise
to get the hogs, at least the older ones
in condition for market early iu the
season. If they have good clover pas
ture wc would not feed them any corn
now, but as soon as the new corn is fit
for the purpose wc should feed liberal
ly, cutting the stalks and feeding them
with the corn. If by thus feeding the
hogs kept over, as pigs or breeding
sows, are fat and marketed by October,
the probabilities are that more profit
will be made than, by deferring liberal
ftcding until frost has destroyed the
pasturage and then marketing the ho;
After the first lot has been sold, if.as
we expect now, there should be a good
prospect for well sustained prices, we
should feed the early pig, except the
best which sL idd be kept for breedin
purposes, with reference to selling them
during the Winter.
As a practical solution of the mucl
discussed question, whether it is lies
to fatten pigs before they are a year
'ld or keep them over one Winter and
s-ell them fiom sixteen to twent
months old, we would sugge.-t that for
vcrv manv farmers lxrth course are ad
visable; that i, it i advisable to hav
some litters of pigs oome early in the
Spring, fattening them when from
eight to ten months old, and keepin
the later litters until the following vear,

fill without the intervention of skill
and experience. Convenient and en-
tircly suitable buildings for each par
ticular branch of manufacturing must
lc erected under the supervision of an
experienced designer, and a skilled me
chanic should select the mot approved
machinery for the work it is intended
to perform. When thec important
preliminaries are duly attended to,
there must be skilled laborers and a
competent supervisor who understands
how to turn out the largest amount ot
good work at the least cost. It is not
evcrv good business man that is fitted
to take charge of such establishments
until he is fitted by judicious training
m all the secrets and mmutia
of the business. Therefore every
Grange, or combination of Granges
looking for the establishment of a
factory, will do well to calculate the
cost of these things, so indispensible to
success and without which failure is in
cvitable. There arc three essentials

abor. Clarhvllle Chronicle.
Seed pram need not be changed ev
ery year nor indeed ever' two years,
but unless on farms where there is va
riety of soil, sufficient to admit of fre
quent change within their own bounds,
fresh seed would be advantageous every
third or fourth 3'ear, especially oats.
In any circumstances it i3 essential
that seed grain should be well harvest
ed and of a fresh health color. More
stress should lie laid on the absence of
malting in harvest, and beating in the
stack-yard than on the weight and
plumpness of the grain intended for
seed, and hitherto Scotch fanners have
kept this, on the whole, pretty well
in view. It would be unwise to advo
cate more attention to the latter con
sideration if that could onlv be accom
plished at the expense of less to the
former. But there is no such danger.
It is quite possible, and it is very de
sirable, that, while farmers should in
no degree relax their endeavors to
avoid imperfectly harvested seed, they
might obtain a better liody of grain
and a more frequent change from a dif
ferent soil and climate. If they do so
the gain would bo theirs. XortJt Brit-
Wheat and Itje.
Wheat requires a better soil than rye,
and where the soil is not good enough
to yield at least 15 bushels of wheat to
the acre, it would be better to sow rye,
which might bring 25 or 30 bushels.
It is useless to sow the more delicate
white wheats except in the best soils.
The amber and red wheats are safer to
sow on medium and light soils. The
past has been a wet season, and there
will be few complaints of a soil too dry
for sowing. Fields not yet plowed,
should be turned over at once, and har
rowed thoroughly until the soil" is well
settled. A firm mellow soil is needed
for wheat or rye. Sowing by drill is
the safest method. The saving of seed
will nearly pay for the use of the drill.
Drills may be hired for 40 cents an
acre or less. The next best manner of
sowing, is to broadcast the seed, and
cover with a cultivator. If the seed is
sown broadcast, the ground should be
rolled thoroughly after being harrowed.
Drill sowing saves the labor of harrow
ing afterwards. Where the fly is not
feared, early sowing is to be pre
ferred. It is a choice of evils between
the dangers of the fly on the one hand,
audof Winter-killing on the other. If
the soil is in good condition, the time of
sowing is to be decided according to
circumstances, locality, and the judg
ment of the individual. American
The amount of inusele that can be
saved bv a little brain labor is wonder
ful. And yet the science of doing ev
erything in proper season and place, in
fact, properly is something that agri
cultural papers or farming books, can
not teach. Experience, calculation
and forethought, arc the mentors. A
month before a piece of machinery is
to be used, a glance at it will show
where it is defective. A rainy day, a
spare hour, a chance to take it to town
to be repaired without going on pur
pose. These present themselves to the
intelligent farmer, and, when the har
vest is ripe, or the corn ready for the
cultivator, there will be no delay for
the mending of damaged machinery.

.Sheep on the Farm.
y well regulated farm in the South
is complete without sheep. They af
ford a profitable soin a of income with
but a trifling expens" for keeping and
a small outlay of cap. -il for the first
purchase. They breed rjipidly, and
are really beneficial to ever farm to
eat down the weeds in fence corners ;
and on the whole we don't see how any
farmer can do without sheep. Rut, you
say, whit brood is be-t to raise with
other stock on the farm? If you only
want a small flock, the Cotswolds are
the most profitable, when provided in
winter with g-od, warm shelter, anl
fed on hay, straw, or fo lder, with hut
little corn, and plenty of turnips or
roots of any kind, and a good supply
of clean water. The extra nnalitv of
the wool will well repay the little extra
care. Ahoy mature early, the lambs
find a good market at six months, and
at two years, their good size, when fit,
makes them good mutton sheep, while
their wool always brings a good price
in the wool market everywhere.
Cotswolds cross well with Merinos
or with the common sheep. The Meri
no? arc better adapted to large flocks
and exposure than the long wools. The
Southdowns arc the bast mutton sheep,
but their wool is not so valuable. Ex.
froppr amount ol Food fjr Slnclf.
A farmer made an experiment. He
took a sheep that weighed about 100
pounds, put it in a pen, and after it had
become wonted, weighed all its food,
and found that three pounds per day
of fodder or grain was all he could
make the sheep cat. The farmer had
verified a rulo woll known to the much-
despised "book farmer," and arrived at
by many and careful cxperinicnt?,tliat
about three pounds of good food per
day for each one hundred pounds of
live stock is a fattening allowance.
For illustration, a sheep weighing one
hundred pounds requires three pounds
of food per day and a steer wcighinig
one thousand needs thirty pounds
These rules arc approximately correct,
being varied somewhat by quality of
food and stock. The farmer knowing
the weight of his food and that of his
stock, by applying these rules, can
guess closely as to whether he lias
enough food for his stock.
Who is the Ilest Farmer?
The best farmer is he who raises the
best and largest crops on the smallest
surface of land at the least cxpense.and
at. me same lime annuaiiv improves
his soil; who understands his business
and attends to it; whose manure heap
is very large and always increasing;
whose corn-crib and smoke-house are at
home; who is surrounded by all the
necessaries and comforts of life; who
studies his profession, and strives to
reach perfection in it; who keeps a
strict account of all his out-goes and in
comes: and who knows how he stands
the end of each season, such a farmer
in nine times out of ten will succeed,
and not only make farming a pleasant,
but profitable occupation. Try it and
see how it is yourself, reader. Farm

is employed as in making common

have boiled, and the dough is then con
sidercd as set; it is then put in a prop

or twelve hours, and then baked in long
loaves. Very little is requisite none,

done enough, pour off the water, let
them stand a few minutes to get dry
then beat them up with a fork, with i
bit of butter about as big as a nutmeg,
and a tcaspoonful of powdered sugar.
Some add lemon-peel, grated or minced
fine, or boil a bit with apples. Some
are fond of apple sauce with old pork.

large apples boiled, some grated bread,
four ounces of butter, four yelks and
two whites of eggs well beaten, sugar

Apple Cream. Roil twelve apples
in water till soft; take olf the peel and
press the pulp through a hair sieve
upon half a pound of pounded sugar;
whip the whites of two eggs, add them
to the apples, and beat all together till
it becomes very stiff and looks quite
white: Servo it heaped up on a dish.

Better than Hops. The leaves of
our common or basket willow, (Wi.r ni

usual for hops, make an excellent yeast
leaven for light bread. The discovery
was made this summer, and after tho
rough trial I was convinced that there
is nothing equal to it, as it rises much
quicker than hops in half the time
imparts none of that hop flavor so dis
agreeable to some, and, in fact, makes
better bread every way. The thing is
well worthy the attention of every good
housewife; and lestsomeshould hesitate
in consequence of not knowing the
medical properties of the willow in
question, I will add that it is a health

THE ART JOURNAL OF AMERICA,
MAONIFICANT CONCEPTION WON
DERFULLY CARRIED OUT.
The necessity of a popular medium for th e
representation of the productions of our great
artists has always been recognized, and many
attempts have been made to meet the- want
The successive failures which have so invariably
followed each attempt in this country to estab
lish an art journal, did not prova the indiSee-
ence of the people of America to tbe claims of
nign art. bo soon as a proper appreciation ol
tho want and an ability to meet it were shown,
the public at once rallied with enthusiasm to
its support, and tho result was a (Teat artistis
and commercial triumph THE ALDINE.
The Aldine while issued with all of the regu
larity, has none of the temporary or timely in
terests characteristic of ordinary periodicals.
It is an elegant miscellany of pare, light, and
graceful literature, and a collection of pictures,
the rarest collection of artistic skill, in black
and white. Although each succeeding number
affords a fresh pleasure to its friends, the real
value and beauty ot Tbe Aldine will be must
appreciated after it is bound up at tbe close of
the year. While other publications may claim
superior chespnesa, as compared with rivals t-f
a similar class. The Aldine is a unique and
original conception alone and nnappioached
absolutely without competition in price or
character. The possessor of a complete vol
ume cannot duplicate tbe quantity of fine pa
per and engravings in any other fhapoornom
Ler of volumes, for ten times it$ cvttj and their,
there is the ehromo, letidei!
Tbe national feature of Toe Ald'ne must bo
taken in no narrow sense. True art is cosmo
politan. While Tbe Aldine is a strictly Aineri
rjn institution, it does not confine itself to tho
peproduction of native art. Its mission is to
cultivate a broad and appreciative art taste, one
that will discriminate un grounds of intrinsic
merit. Thus, while nleadingbefore the patrons
of The Aldine, as a leading cbaracieristic. the
produc'ionsof the mostnoted American artists,
attention will always be given to specimens;
from foreign masters, giving subscribers all tbe
pleasure and instruction obtainable from home
or foreign sources.
The artistis illustration or American reentry,
original with The Aldine is an important fea
ture, and its magnificent plates are of a siie
more appropriate to tbe satisfactory treatment
of details than can be afforded by any inferior
page. Tbe judicious interspersionof landscape,
marine, figure and animal subjects, sustain an
unabated interest, impossible where the scope
of the work confines the artist too olosely to a
sinzlo style of subject. The literature of The
Aldine is a light and graceful accompaniment,
worthy of tbe artistic features, with only such
technical disquisitions as do not interfere with
