Farm Papers—No. 2. BY A. M.
Forty or fifty yean ago farming was
a regular routine business ia all the
older States.' It varied somewhat ac
cording to" locality ; but whatever it
was in any locality, so it remained. It
was considered a finished art, so far as
improvement was concerned, and far
mers sons and daughters were educa
ted in accordance with these views.
If the boy could cipher in the single
rule of three, his education was com
plete, and the daughter was sufficient
educated even at alower stage. When
the boy could plow, he felt himself
young man, and when he could han
dle th!e scythe and cradle he was a full
Those times, however, were not
wi$out their good results ; boys and
girls were learned to work ; not only
how to do, but habituated to doing it.
Industry was so schooled into their
habits that it became a sort of second
nature. This was conducive to both
health and morals, and the great pity
is that it has so nearly died out at the
present day ; though we still have
many good and noble examples, but
they are not as popular as they should
Growing grain was then the main
feature of farming. Stock raising and
feeding were simply supplemental.
Some butter and cheese were made
supply the local markets. A brighter
A.tima dawned in the interest
larming. New implements of hus
bandry have been Invented and 'are
gradually insinuating themselves into
" the good graces ot the farming com
munity. "-. I say gradually, for they had
'to be well tested before being adopt
ed. Thus step by step has this great
national interest advanced to what we
tee it at the present day. Its march
is still onward. r-It is the basis of our
country's strength. Millions of acres
o bey et. opened up by farmers for
farming purposoB is a sure guarantee
of the futme Btrength and greatness
the country. , A nation that can feed,
and feed well all its inhabitants, and
have a large surplus to spare, must
stand at the head of the great family
of nations. " H
Many fanners, especially the young
er ones, are leaving the older States
to settle on the virgin soil of the
west. This is very well, and we ex
tend to them our kindest word of
courafrement. with best wishes
their success. There will, however,
be enough left behind to occupy
whole space, and to those we will have
a word to say.
It has been well remarked, that
where land is poor of medium quality,
it is better to have one acre on
top of another, than spread out
by side, as. it costs only one half
labor and expense to cultivate it. .
you have fifty acres that will produce
fifty bushels of shelled corn to
acre, it is better to double the depth
of the soil by deep, or subsoil plowing
and add manure in such quantity,
will make it produce one hundred
bushels of shelled corn to the acre,
than to buy another filty acres along
side that will only produce fifty bush'
els to the acre allowing to use
same amount of money in duplicating'
the first fifty, as it would take to pur
chase the second fifty acres.
In improving land to make it pro
duce doable crops, we should always
bear in mind that nnderdraining ;
one of the means to accomplish this.
The general belief among farmers is,
that only 'wet! land requires under
draining. This mistake has been ver
ified over and over again. It is true
that a fanner should drain, his low,
or wet land first, but do not stop
that ; continue the good work. A tew
thoughts will explain the advantages.
Wet ground is always cold i i com
parison 'with dry.' . Vegetation re
quires warmth.. By having tha ground
warm early in the spring and late
the fall,' ,we have longer summers.
Every farmer knows the advantage
a long summer in ripening np his corn
and other crops. -
The orchardist, market gardener
and small fruit grower, Bhould under
drain every foot of land appropriated
to these purposes. . To have fruits and
vegetables in market a few days ear
Tier than your neighbor, and thereby
get high prices, would soon pay the
expenses of draining. We can prom
ise yon that this would be the result
-we need not tell yon of the ad van
tage you understand that.
In the improvement of stock, it
ot the first importance that the male
be of pure blood. Whenever an im
pure one is used, you begiu to
back to where you started from, and
a few generations will reach that point.
In breeding horses this matter is
to be overlooked by farmers. The
principle will hold good with any
land of stock.
I am glad, to see our farmer are
turning their attention to the impor
tance of improving the size ot our
work horses, by breeding to a large
and more improved stock. Uavinz
had occasion so visit the northern part
ot Chester county, Fa , with a friend
wished to purchase a few large breed"
ing mares for his farm, I was glad to
see that the sturdy yeomanry of this
county are full alive to the advantage
tt having good large horses. I found
-co ui me Gorman or
Percheron amongst a large number of
the faxmer--the progeny of several
fine horses, imported several years
ago, from France. At first the far
mers were alow to appreciate the
large stock that had been introduced
there; but now they fully realize their
value, as half-breeds or quarter breeds
"command from $100 to i00 more
than any other stock, and it is just as
asy to raise a good horse as a poor
one, and a great deal more profitable.
Arranging Flowers in Beds.
In arranging flowers in beds the
principal things to be avoided are:
The pUcing 0f rosecolored or red
flowers next scarlet or orange, or or
ange next yeitow, blue next violet, or
rose next violet. Onrt . .
, Vn the contrary, the
following color, tanao,.
wm relieve any colorTbat.;
light blue, yellow, with vu&, J
blue with orange yellow, whit, Wllt
pink or rose, and lilac with yellow
By observing these rules the amateur
may have bis flower borders vie in
beauty and arrangement with those of
greater pretentions, and even surpass
many ! them.
The Corn Crop and its Cultivation.
As the coin planting season has re
turned, and, in many portions of the
country, passed, the best means for
the cultivation thereof will suggest
itself to the thoughtful tarmer, to reach
the best results from this great staple
crop of the West. Occasionally periods
of low prices tend to discourage the
appreciation of the true value ot this
product, causing many farmers to . try
other crops less adapted to the cli
mate, and less sure of yielding fair
and regular returns.
Extremely favorable seasons for
this cereal, though generally resulting
in low prices, aflord an indispensable
surplus with which to bridge over the
year of short crops. Unless the best
system of tillage prevails, there is no
probability that the increasing acreage
from year to year will keep pace with
the increasing demand for this great
feeding staple, taking into account the
frequent short crops. If allowed to
remain on the cob, and kept in a dry
place, it retains all ot its qualities in a
perfect state for years.
In the production of crops, there is,
perhaps, none more susceptible to the
efforts ot good cultivation than this,
and especially the large, late varieties
produced south of the 43d parallel ot
north latitude ; neither is there a crop
among the cereals which feels the ef
fects of manure more strongly. This
brings us to the discussion of the in
itial step the most important one in
the production of a good corn crop.
Contrary to the old custom, we
would plow for corn as taxlj in the
spring as the condition of the soil
will allow. If accomplished in the
fall, all the better. The atmospheric
influences and those ot rain and sun
shine act more perfectly in bringing
the soil into a friable state, than they
would if the land is allowed to lie nn
plowed up to planting time The ad
vantages gained by the farmer, wh
thus has his ' work done early, and
avoids the rush necessary to accom
plish accumulated work later in the
season is considerable. Corn docs
best on a well pulverized soil ; and i
the ground is broken up and allowed
to remain for some time exposed to
the atmospheric changes, disintegra
tion becamcs complete ; and in case of
extremely dry weather about plant
ing time which often occurs it will
be found to retain the moisture much
better than the later plowed land. To
outdo the weeds the corn should
make a quick, vigorous growth at the
start, which it cannot do except on
firm, mellow soil.
If heavy rains occur to beat the
ground down after plowing so that
the harrow cannot perform its work
projerJy, it is important that the
planter is soon followed by a tTO
horse cultivator astride of each row,
for good farmers find the harrow to
be one of the most useful implements
in the cultivation of corn, if u-ed npen
a mellow surface soon after planting.
As good seed is the first requisite
for a good crop, farmers should al
ways select the seed in the yfall and
hang it np in a dry place. Then,
is better to try its germinating quali
ty before planting. If it becomes
necessary to change the kind of corn,
new varieties should be introduced
cantiously, and experimented with
on a small ecale, before planting
largely. Greatly diminitLcd yields
have been the consequence of a want
of care in this direction.
After the corn is planted, and the
ground is put in proper order, much
may be gained by the use ot a prop
erly constructed brush, made wide
enough to take in four rows at a lime.
If this is drawn over the ground with
sufficient weight upon it, about the
time the corn U making its appear
ance, it not only leaves the corn a
clean place to Ftand in, but the after
cultivation an easy matter, compared
with the old method of letting the
young plants stand below the gen
eral level of a cloddy surface.
Another' good, and effective im
plement, though rude in construction,
is made train a log, flat on one side,
by fastening to it with a lifting hitch,
to keep the front side a little higher
than the rear. This makes an excel
lent clod crusher.
Every farmer who has practiced
harrowing corn, well knows the ad
vantage of it, and will not relioquish
its application until it is large enough

The Boston Journal of CliemLiry
in speaking ef men who, retiring from
other pursuits to the farm, become
confused with the contradictory evi
dence of the fancy farmers at clubs,
and finally give np the profession at
the end of the fourth or fifth vear in
disgust, adds :
. Unfortunately those who know the
least, write and talk the raoet, and it
is difficult to suggest the remedy for
tne amiclion. farming is a pursuit
wuicn demands intelligence, common
sense, aud a capability of discrimina
ting between cause and effect. It i
a calling encumbered with much pre.
udica and many absurd notions hand
ed down from past generations. We
mut aid in dispelling these evils, and
in placing agriculture upon a higher
plane. The intelligence aud progress
of the age demand it.
Now, we believe there are some
settled poinis in agriculture, some
facts, some principles, which should
be considered as removed rom the
field of controversy; and if we ever
expect to make progress we must en
deavor to multiply these settled facts.
At another time we will endeavor to
point out some ot the fixed principles
which may be regarded as safe to fol
low in soil cultivation.
Source of Nitrogen in Plants.
It is well known that the quantity
of akrogen contained in the crop ex
ceeds in enormous proportion that
existing in the manares. the excefs
undoubtedly lieing derive! from the
air. It h ntv a question whether
this is extracte 1 directly from the air
by plants, whici would Unn hive the
power of assiroilaxin:; diretly. or it it
is first taken from the air by the m,il, ko

and form an H-wiinilablj co.-iijxjnii'l.
According to Dehcnin, oxytp'n, iu

Hard Times vs. Good Stock.
'Hard times" seems to be the
universal cry. True, times are hard,
and particularly so in the West. All
are to some extent dependent on the
farmer. When he has money to spend
others get it, and business is lively.
Wheat is a pretty good price, but it
has been so well "bugged'' of late,
that farmers have little to sell. Oats
are plenty, but low. Corn is penned
np in Luge cribs, lrom cue tud of the
land to the other, and is scarcely
worth hauling to market- Stock is
also low, hogs especially, but still at
present prices it will pay to feed corn
to them. It we can get $3,50 per
hundred, or even 3 00 cn loot, we
can make our corn bring us from
thirty to forty cents per bushtl, it we
have the ii;ht kind ot lios.
One of my neighbors sid. 44 1
would like to have some good pig,
but can't aflord to buy thinn, 'cause
times are so hard ' I think his rea
son about as good a a woman's ''Oh!
"cause." He keeps scrub stock. With
him times are always hard. Ho will
eed his corn to "laud sharks,' and
fact get more than six pounds ol poik
to the bushel ot corn, if he ever does
get that. When he sells his hogs
next fall they will bring less than
good stock, and so he will lose both
ways. Let us figure a little. Sup
pose he feeds fifty hogs twenty bush
els ot corn each, before he sells. They
eat 1,000 bushe.i and gain 0,000
pounds If prime hogs sell for $3,50
per hundred, he cannot get over $3,00
for his stock, which amounts to 180,

Xow, if he had good stock, such as
'oland Chinas, or Berkshire, he
could have made from tec to twelve
pounds to the bushel say, ten ; and
we have 10,000 pounds ot prime hogs,
which at $3,50 per cwt. makes $350,
showing a balance in favor of the
good stock ot $10. or nearly double.
Corn thus fed brings thirty-five cents
Are his reasons good ? Are the
times so hard that we may not improve
our stock? Xo. The harder the
times the better stock we should keep.

The Music Tree.
A correspondent of the English
Gardener's JIagasxnc discourees upon
the tifusic tree, and dear readers, we
advise the planting of them about
every homestead. It is not confined
to the Arbutus unedo, but every tree
that will furnish shelter and food for
singing birds, may become one :
The music tree is as definable
the torment tree. It is, indeed,
well known to botanists as any plant
in the world, but less known to En
glish gardeners than might be dsired.
It is the Arbutus unedo of the books,
a handsome evergreen shrub or tree,
according to circumstances. In the
eastern parts Britian it is a shrub, but
in the neighborhood of the lakts of
Killarnty, aud in many other districts
in the western parts, it attains the
dimenhinns of a forest tree, and con
tributes an element of excessive rich
ness to the scenery. It is not adapted
for universal uses, being somewhat
tender in cnthutKin and requiring
moist atmosphere. However, it grows
freely and fruits abundantly in all th
southern parts of England, and may
be seen in a fine state of development
in many gardens near London. The
flowers appear, in September, pleas
antly dotting the tree wiih little pink
bells. Soon aftej the fruits appear in
great plenty ; they attain the size and
form of a cherry, of a fine scarlet col
or, covered with granular points which
give them the appearance ot strawber
ries ; hence it is best known as the
"otrawberry tree.'' These fruits are
scarcely agreevble to the human pal
ate, but brushes and blackbirds de
light to banquet on them, and wher
ever the arbutus thrives, and is plen
tifully planted, these noble songsters
of the grove will haunt the place and
make it glad with music. Thiw-e who
love to hear wild birds singing merri
ly amid the branches better than the
best song ot the caged captive, should
plant the music tree, which will aflord
the songsters food in those dreadful
wintry times, when the eaith is iron
and the heaven brass, and insect lite
is unattainable, because sealed un bv
frost. Such of our readers as enjoy
what is called a ' Devonshire climate,"
may indulge largely in the delights
that attach, like its own proper fruit,
to tne music tree, which gives forth
song all through the Winter and the
Spring, aud when cut down at last
furnishes a beautiful timber, which the
turner and cabinetmaker turns to ad
Hunger and Thirst.
The want of solid food is indicated
by the sensation of hunger, and that
ot liquors by thirst ; hunger is re
lerred to the stomach, thirst to the
upper part of the throat ; but the con
dition of these parts depends on the
wants of the system, lho sensation
of hunger U probably dependent on
the torpid condition ot the capil'ary
vessels of the stomach, preparatory to
the secretion ot the gastric juice, ex
cited by the sympathetic nerves, and
communicated to the nervous centres,
When food is introduced, the fluid is
secreted, the capillaries are relieved
ot their blood, and the immediate

the effect ot removing, for a time, the

ot the system are not thus satisfied,
the local relief soon passes awav. and
food is deminued more imperatively
