Prospects of the Corn Crop.

We ad Southwest are in the high
t degree encouraging, while the
cMtera portion of the middle States,
tgpioiOy the dutrioU entering in
Philadelphia, hare experienced the
beat possible oooditions of success.
The long continued heat, so annoying
to animal nature, justt suits the nature
of corn, especially when aocompamed
by Um regular showers we have had
of late. s
Generally the oorn crop in the East
it not a matter of supreme concern, as
feat nsuaHy raised so cheaply k e
West that it is not regarded as one of
the most profitable articles to grow.
But this Tear additional interest at-
taehes to it from the failure of the hay
crop. The absence of rain and snow
durinz the winter left the earth with
out its nsual spring moisture; and
this, followed by a dry spring, injured
the growth of the grass materially.
In most of the barns within fifty miles
ef Philadelphia, and from which he
draws most of her supplies, there is
generally at hay tune enough on hand
to last nearly a year ahead. But this
season the new hay was taken to near
ly empty barns. This is probably the
non.lition of thin 78 in most of our
eastern States. Hay will, therefore,
be likely to hold its present high price

and on those arms where there is

intelligent farmers that there is very
little gain a the .weight of oorn after

thus furnishing excellent fodder and

Rearing Bees Artificially.
Quia by says r "In rearing queens
artificially we wish to get as nearly as
possible what we should have when
reared in the natural course of swarm
ing, or what we would ordinarily get
when a colony loses the mother queen.
The eggs in the abdomen of a healthy
queen are probably all alike, yet the
eggs deposited in worker cells make
workers, in drone cells make drones.
Sex is probably decided in the act Oj
laying. The eggs that are laid in the
worker cells may produce queens; those
laid in drone cells never do. When the
egg has batched, and the larva? has
been fed beyond a certain time as a
worker, it cannot be changed to a
queen. Bees, when deprived of their
queen, seem to think that the first thing
necessary toward replacing her is the
queen cells, and they commence sever
al. When they have grubs of the
proper age, the queen cells will be
commenced over those first, or over
those just a little too far advanced to
be changed perfectly, if they happen
to be suitably located in the hive.
If these are not to be had, they com
mence over drone cells, or cells of bee
bread, or even empty cells. If a fall
colony is left destitute, several queens
will be started at the right age per
haps a few may be too far advanced ;
others may be started several days
Th Psdt Crop. The peanut
mania is raging to such an extent in
some of the counties of Middle Ten-
nessee, that some of the farmers are
confining almost their whole efforts to
l.ir Motivation. The crop is well
cultivated, and unless some unforeseen
calamity befalls the crop, it will sur
pass any previously grown, both in
quality and quantity. From numerous
inquiries made of dealers and farmers
we are disposed to put down the total

The following is the substance of
the report of the Illinois Swine Breed
er's Association :
1. The lower the price of pork the
greater the need for growing those
breeds from which the product can be
most cheaply made. Depreciation in
prices should be met by greater effort
to improve the stock.
2. To avoid possible deterioration
is best to preserve the distinct
3. Before farrowing, give sows such
food as will incite the secretion of
milk: After farrowing, feed lightly
at first, increasing the quantity care
fully np to the full supply. Teach the
pigs to eat as soon as possible.
4. Alter weaning, the pigs should
have the best care. Milk, with oats
and corn ground together, is excellent
food in proper quantity. Plenty of
exercise is indispensable to health.
5. Market at nine to fourteen month s
old for profit.
6. It was thought not best to en
courage the breeding of pure bred an
imals for general pork making ; that
is, it is not necessary to confine it to
any one pure breed to insure success,
but that the mixing of pure breeds
for this purpose has, in the mam, given
very satisfactory results.
1. Ground or choked food will, per
pound,make more pork than unground
or uncooked; but it does not follow
thai, tinder all circumstances, it is
most profitable to grind or cook it.
This will depend on the price of grain,
the expense of grinding and cooking,
and the eost of feeding.- Each farmer
must decide the question for himself
and by his own surroundings. It is
better to soak and shell oorn than to
feed it m the ear. -
8. Most diseases among animals are
attributable to want of judgment and
care in their management. All reme
dies for diseases which prevailed in
1871 failed. ; Kill the sick hoes and
find out, if possible, why they became
to. The style of architecture,although
to be regarded, is not the most im
portant feature in piggery. A pen,
weQ covered with coarse, wild hay,
and kept dean, where the pigs are
regularly fed and watered is all that is
indispensable to success.
A new method of packing butter
for the retail trade has been invented,
which promises to answer a want long
felt. The new process is described as
follows : , A firkin or barrel is prepar
ed by filling to a proper depth with
strong and pure brine. The butter,
as it if taken from the churn and pre
pared for market, is carefully selected
as to color and quality and enclosed
plain cotton bags or sacks, ' weighing
from five to ten pounds each. These
sacks are placed in the barrel or firkin,
fresh and sweet, and as the brine
completely covers them they can
kept in this condition for any length
time, it is claimed, without any .deter
ioration in quality.' One great ad van
tage that is claimed for this new style
of packing is, that dealers can take
" . .
one or more of the bap from
"giSifpacijige, leaving the rest safe
under cover of the brine and excluded
a SI -
from the air. The bags are suited
the retail trade, as they are just about
what is generally needed for family
use, but are at the same time so con
veniently arranged that any smaller
amount can be cut from them in the
handiest manner. This is an experi
ment in packing butter, but it is wor
thy of consideration by retail dealers.
The most pressing need in most
gardens a that of water. Soil, manure,
site, shelter, aspect all, as. a rule,
have been more or less planned
provided for ; but water has been ex
pec ted to drop down from the clouds.
And if it does not, how many garden

garden crops. As well try to make

fresh-scented flowers without water.
And yet water is not only exceedingly
scarce, but most recklessly wasted
nearly all Eogliah gardens ; it is treat
ed more of an enemy to be got rid
than a friend to help in every good
work. It is carried off buildings

portion of that water ought to be saved
up for future use. The rainfall through
out the greater part of the country
not sufficient for the majority of
garden crops. Sometimes for months,
during the most trying weather,
have no rain . By storing our water
we could regulate, and to a great
tent equalize, tbe distribution. Com
mon sense would tell us to open
lower cisterns,' when those in Cloud
land were closed or exhausted.
to do this, we must store water in
more wholesome manner I say store
rather than raise water ; for spring
water, unless first exposed fur some
days to the ameliorating influence

for the nourishment of plants.

Save the Sheep from Dogs.
We have frequently recommended
bells one secured to the neck of every
sheep as a certain protection against
dotra. A keeper ot cheep in one ot
the New England States writes that,
in his locality every sheep and lamb
must be belled to save them from dogs
and from wild cats, which latter will
take a lamb quietly, not disturbing the
flock as much as dogs They rarely
visit the same flock or neighborhood
successive nights. I know two flocks

were never disturbed; the others
without bells were destroyed by the
cats. Driving the flock home and
flolding within a few feet of the house
proved no protection. I had a small
flock kept beside a thoroughfare, which
would be chased by the passing dogs
out of the lot and so frightened that I
could not keep them without fetters
when the dogs wonld get them down
and tear them. I bought bells all
strapped and buckled for 12 cents
each ; put one on each sheep and Iamb,
which so frightened the dogs that the
sheep became very daring, and I had

Sheep killers and Iamb stealers are
usually thieving cowards. They know
better than to touch the harmless flock.
Hence, when every sheep begins to
rattle a bell, the sneak thieves will
think more of skedaddling away from
the sheepfold than of drinking the
smoking blood of the inoffensive sheep

The Life of A Bee.
Adair says there is a perfect system
eoverniuir the work of the bee that
contrary to former notions, which sup
posed that the different offices of the
bees are directed, as a system of police
iu a government, by a head, and were
executed by the exercise of reason and
discretion, they are involuntary, and
each bee in succession performs all the
duties. As it increases iu age, it
crowded outwardly by the develop
ment of others in the center. From
nurse in the brood nest, its labors are
transferred to the wax structure
thence to the gathering and storing of
honey ; and when it is no longer ot
u?e as a productive agent, it takes its
place in the living wall that protects
what it can no longer produce, and
finally cast off like the withered leaf,

social co operation, there has grown
