A veterinary contributor of the
Chicago Tribune thus answers a corres
pondent Inquiring about 'what ho
Miould do to the horee with the above
vices:
Wind-sucking.istnmp-sucking and
rih-hiti'j'r arc essentially the same
0 . .
vice. The only difference consists in
the greater proficiency of the wind
niir&rr: for the same are ablo to
swallow air, and .to belch it out again,
without support for their teeth;
while crib-biters can not do it unless
they have something manger, pole
of a wagon, neck-yoke, tc. of which
thev can take hold with their teeth,
Both vice3 once fully developed are
incurable; -aud horses that have ac
quired them can be prevented only
temporarily from exercising the same.
The most common and may be the
most efficient method of suppressing
the exercise of these bad habits, con
sists in buckling. a, .strap. rather tight
around the horse's, neck, sawing be
tween the horseVtcetb or driving a
wedge between his nippers, or old
borse-jockey tricks, which cause the
animal sufficient toothache not only to
induce him to ne-rlect his crib-bitinK
cxerciees, but also to make him refuse
his food. Both -vices, wind-sucking
and crib-biting, are usually the conse
oucnec of much idleness, and are ac
quired almost exclusively by such
borses as revnaturally very active and
nossesa a nervous temperament A
voung horse that'fcoraroences to make
bis firatxxercise may be broken of that
bad 'teabit, and be caused to forget it
altogether, if he is worked sufficiently
-every day, and docs not occupy the
pame stable with an old sucKer'or crib-
biter,witb whom be ,can exercise his
bad habit
Wind-sucking and crib-biting, like
a great many vice3,jire somewhat con
tagious; for it has been repeatedly ob-
j-eryeithat an old "winduckcr tor cnb-
biters apt to -teach or impart, bis
batl&abifto younger horses who stand
in the same stable. Still, these habits
areiiot so bad s people generally sup
pose them'lo be; they diminish mate,
rially tbereal value of , the horse only
when the latter makes his crib-biting
cxereSes oh the. edge or a manger
while lie is eating his grain, for in that
case considerable grain will fall to the
-ground and be wasted. It is also
claimed that wind-suckers are more
apt to be affected "with wind colic tlian
any other horses. This, however, is a
Lypothesis without any foundation;
but even if it should be trne, then the
fame cause -that is the wind-sucking,
-whichi is .supposed to indJce the wind-
colic will make the latter less dan
gerous; for an accomplished wind
f ucker can eruct cas with the same
facility with "which he swallows .air.
I-cader Wanted.
There is nothing which, the grange
.movement now needs as' much as it
-does leaders. Thus far there has been
a superabundance of talkers, that have
ferved every purpose that such people
can Bcrve. Action prompt action
must now take "the place of speechify
ing. And it is important that the Pa
tron should understand accurately the
quality of rnau.fUtqd for .directing.
"We believe the Grangers are read' for
action on a great many matters that
concern' them. Now is the: time for
the great captains to appear; and,
irs, when vou come to examine, you
will find 'that these are exceedingly
rare. There is nothing being done.
Big meetings are held, and great ex
pectations are raised, but the move
ment toward the settlement of vital
questions are very slow. There is too
imich time spent in mere palaver and
debate emokethe greater part.of it,
with hardly a bit of fire below. Not
long ago we heard a manufacturer, who
has always given the same terms to
the grangers that he has to the mid
dlem'n, say that he cannot get the
"leading spirits" of the organization to
act with even a moderate decree of
promptness, on any proposition that is
laid before them. We know some of
the "leaders" of the grange movement
in this State, who, in their way of op
crating, reminds us not a little of the
typical politipiap. They are down on
the electioneering in a word, but, in
deed, they practice it all .the time
themselves, .hey like to be present
at every d'arge grange meeting, in order
that they may those who want to ue
them for some purpose humor them b'
saying "give the advantage of their
j'n-itige and personal presence to
tht causj." All fudge, three-fourths
of the time, is this talk. Wo know
men who plot and plan, in order that
they may receive an invitation, and
then consider themselves donors, and
claim credit accordingly. We repeat
there arc a great many weighty ques
tions which must not be trifled with
much longer; anil we hope and believe
when the National Grange meets,
which it will shortly, in this city
(Louisville), it will set another exam
ple worthy of its importance, and wor
thy the imitation of not a few of the
State granges. Farmers' Home Jbr-

Young ."Kan, Stick to it.
There is a deal of regret expressed
in speeches, letters to agricultural pa
pers, and in editorials by kind-hearted,
well-intentioned editors, that the boj-a
are leaving the farms. No doubt
many young men have realized the
fact that farm life is no harder than
city lite. Jinny have been wise
enough to return to the farm after test
ing the realities in a city. ' But the
boys who leave the farm1 for the city
or village follow the example of older
men. The number of well-to-do farm
ers who have realized beautiful homes,
reached middle age and have sold
their farms, bought village or city lots
and settled on them with the view of
"taking things easier," is not a small
one. Uiese men lo so with the same
or similar motives with -which young
men leave the farms, and they are so
often disappointed in the results.
We know farmers, both young and
old, who have abandoned profitable
and beautiful farm homesteads, re
moved to thc.village, invested their
capital in" trade, got pretty thoroughly
"cleaned out" in a business in which
they had no practical experience, and
have bought back their homesteads at
an advanced price, running in debt to
get possession of them, and working
bard and contentedly to pay again for
what they once possessed. Some of
these men' have said to U3 within the
last two months, "a farmer is a fool
who sells his farm thinking to have an
easier and happier time in a village or
city. The effect of such reaction in
the case of these examples upon those
who stick to the farm is exceedingly
wholesome. It renders them content'.
They havo not wasted substance in
"pulling up stakes ami removing
from "the old landmarks." They have
been steadily accumulating as farmers
and gathering about their liomesteads
all the modern appliances for the con
servation of comfort and content The
farmer who "sticks to it" is sure to
win what city-made money rarely pur
chases independence, happiness, and
a seuce of security which is the result
of well-doing. Rural New Yorker.
Bulky Horses.
I once heard of an unfortunate gen
tlcman who had become insane, but
was restored to sound health simply
bv causing the mind to make a sudden
revulsion; which was done by skillful
ly becoming jealous of hi3 wife, who
was a most excellent lady aud aware
of the process.
On this hint we might learn to man-
ago a oaiKV norse. lie is insane on
the subject of going, that is Belfevi
dent If we can make him think ou
another subject, ho will naturally for
get about going and go beforo he thinks
about it The following devices have
been successfully tried to accomplish
the desired end;
1st Tying a string around the horse's
ear close to his head.
2d. Hitching the horse to a swingle-
tree by means of a. cord instead of the
tugs; the cord fastened to the horse's
tail.
3d. Filling the mouth full of some
disagreeable substance.
4th. Tying a stout twine around the
leg just below the knee and then re
moving'it when he has traveled some
distance.
Never whip a balky horse, for the
more he is whipped the crazier he will
become. Let everything be done gen
tly, for boisterous words only confuse
him and make him worse. Treat him
in the mild manner that you would a
crazy man, and you will succeed.
Corn Culture.
According to the weight of the
whole plant the small Canada and New
England corn gives more pounds of
grain than our large Southern corn.
It also gives more bushels per acre.
It will pay to import our seed from
the North once in five or six years for
all stock feeding purposes. For bread,
we prefer the Southern corn. For
making first-class corn pay, the North
ern varieties, with their smaller stalks
have the advantage. One can have
drills closer in small than in large
corn. This plant makes excellent
forage, and more per acre than any
other if properly cultivated. One
needs very lich land and thick seeding
'to secure a large crop of hay which is
best rold in bale?.
Farming on General Principles.
The London Agrieulural Gazette, in
one of its leading articles, has the fol
lowing apt remark on' this subject: A
young farmer cannot learn too early the
important lesson that the profit or loss
on particular acts qf husbandry cannot
be determined for him on general
principles. lie will, indeed do well to
remember the advice of a famous phy
sician who, on entering a sick chamber,
immediately ordered a blister put on
the patient's head. A young doctor,
an admirer of the master's skill, asked
tiini what ho had Seen at a single glance
to justify the blister. The reply was
that a long lecture would be required
to expound his reasons fully, since they
were derived from close observations
of symptoms during a large experience.
He added, in reference to his rapid in
sight, 'The patient's eyo had something
to do with it, but it-was not that alone,
so don't go and blister the patient ev
ery time you observe such an eyo.
in is is an illustration 01 the errors
which a man who farmed on general
principles, with insufficient knowledge
of details, would be certain to commit.
iVnd we would recommend a course of
practical observations in the field by
every agricultural student, in order
that he may avoid such mistakes.
A great deal in' every business de
pends on striking at the right time.
A vast amount of the bungling, un
necessary farming, that we see, springs
from the disregard of the simple truth
just stated. The careless or ignorant
farmer puts off liis plowing until it is
time for the seed to be put in tho
ground, and then he starts in a terri
ble hurry. He don't know which way
to run first, and his conduct soon puts
everybody about him in the same con-
ditiou as himself. Downing, the great
pomologist, thought this a great motto
stir the ground; we think, strike vihfle
the iron's hot, taken in a general sense,
a better. There are a great many lit-
tie jobs that ought to be done on every
farm right now, but which are apt to
be put offuntil it is too late. Now is
a good time to think of the arrange
ments which will be required to insure
the various domestic animals comfort,
and a proper support, during tho win
ter. hat about such commodities as
Irish potatoes? Immense quantities of
this excellent tuber are destroyed ev
ery year through the unpardonable
and sinful carelessness of which farm
ers are guilty. Anybody who is ig
norant of how to take care of his pota
toes can find out by writing to any
good agricultural paper, or from his
neighbor. Let nothing bo wasted in
any way. A great many of our read
ers aro in tho-South, where every day
we are learning more and moro of the
great importance of economy: A
farmer who loves his business, and
who, is therefore fitted for it, is not
apt to overlook any of his duties. It
is the individual who i3 farming from
force of circumstances, rather than
from choice, that stands most in need
of these words of counsel. Farmer'

and white. Although each succeeding nunbtf
affords a fresh pleasure to its friends, the real
value and beauty ot The Aldine will be most
appreciated after it is bound jjp at the close (
the year. While other publications may claina
superior cheapness, as compared with rivals' of
a similar class-. The Aldlne is a cnlqae and
original -conception alone and; nnapproached
absolutely without competition in prieo of
character. The possessor of a complete vol.
ome cannot duplicate the quantity 'of fine pa
per and engravings in any other shape or num
ber of volaines, for ten timet if toetf and then,
there is tie ehmio, ndei!
The national feature' of Tne AMne mast be
taken in no narrow tense. True art is easmo
polltan. While The Aldine is a strictly Amtrt' T
ran institution, it does not confine itself to the
pf production of native art. Its mission' Is ta
cultivate a broad and appreciative art taste, oaa
that wjU discriminate on grounds of In'trfoiia
merit. Thus, while pleidingbefore the patrons
of The Aldine, as a (elding eharaeterisMc, th.
productions of themostnoted American, artlstt,
ttention will always bo given to speeimena
from foreign masters, giving subscribers all the)
pleasure and Instruction obtainable from' noma'
or fo'retga'soortffs.
Tbe artistie illustration of American reeserr
original with The Aldioo is an Important fea
ture, and it a. magnificent plates areora'stso
more appropriate to the satisfactory treatment
ofdetaits than ean be afforded by any inferior
page. The judicious lnterspersionof landscape,
marinefigure and animal subjects, sustain aa
unabated interest, impossible where the scop '
Vf the work" confines the artist too closely to.a
single stylo of snbjeet. lh literatim ofjTia- -Aldine
it a light and graeefal aecompanimeat,
worthy or tho artistio features, with only socb -technical
disquisitions as do not interfere" with -the
popular interest of the work.
