A Vineyard on Every Farm.
Souio ilny in tin; l'uture the art uml
practice uf tvim -making will be as
familiar ami univorKul inimnij us on tlie
lnuntifaeiuro of cider is now. Aud. llio
juice of tlio grape, properly prepared, is
greatly nupmior to tbat of tins applo iu
ntrcn;ti ituu houlth giving demcntr.
It IB an an easy matter for tin! majority
uf farninin to provide ample supplies of
wino for their household uso at com
paratively trifling cost A bulf ncro iu
each hundred uf cultivated land, iet
witli vines of Lardy varieties, would bo
ufhient, if well cared for, to furnish
both fruit and wino for llio number of
people occupying, on on uvorage, that
urea. Doubtless tbcro uro limited re-,
gions in ourcountry where grapes would
not suficcod but the area in vast where
they would thrive to a sufficient degree
to make tho growing of thorn for family
uso satisfactory, although it might bo
far from profitablo to raise them for
market, la any neighborhood or locality
where u Eolitary viuo does well, it is
certain that others will thrive to supply
tho wants of tho population. 15y such
universal planting ouly can wo hope to
hco tho rural population of our laud sup
plied with fruit and wine; for the
products of tho favored grape regions,
whero tho culture is carried on exten
sively, will bo mostly absorbed by the
cities.
Let every farmer have bis vineyard as
well ns his orchard, not planted with a
view to Bellini' its products, but to con-
Humini? them in bis owu family. It is
liretty Fnfo to assert that whuro apple I
0 - -
trees will flourish Fomo varieties oi
i-rapes will do tolerably well alongside
of th'in. The mauufaelure of wiuo for
home uso should bo conducted uluiost
precisely liko that of cider. Have the
Iruit ripe and clean, mash it und
rrcss out tho iuiee with care. Let it
Icruieut a few days, liko good cider,
then rack it, cleanse tho casks and refill
them. Hung tight, and rack again early
in tho spring, und thu third tiuio on the
upproach of hot weather. Have aounu,
uweui casks, keep them full, and store
it iu a clean, cool cellar, and yonr bev
erage will excel iu grateful flavor and
healthful invigorating effects when the
hard ubur and the hot suus ot summer
tempt its trial. It is as easy and biuiplo
to uiako good wiuo as good cider. The
yield of wino would average on hundred
gallons to tho acre from well cultivated
viueyarus ot strone uardy varieties,
Wheat Culture in Kentucky and
Soutn oi it.
As n goueral rule, in cultivating
plants fur Mubsistouee, tho tiino of com
mittini' tho seed to tho eurth thould be
so regulated us to secure to tho crop
that part of the growing season best
suited to the habits uf the plant to be
cultivated ; as tor example tho Irish
ljotato. which thrives best in cool, moist
weather, such as belongs to tho -climate
of Ireland, s'iould bu planted curly, so
us to have tho advantage of the mild
weather and geuiul showers of April,
May and early June a practice attend
ed with such good results as to secure
tho adoption of that period among cul
tivators iu localities similar to this in
climate for planting tho main crop
Wheat is a plaut more northern iu
its habits than the lrith potato, and is,
perhaps, more beiieQtted thuu the potato
by having that part of its development
which begins with startiug tho culm and
cuds iu the perfection of the berry to
take placo heloio tho extreme not
Weather of summer outnes on. . U ut
there aro some dithxultics which lie iu
the wav of lisim: feed time so us to
have the growth of tho plants iu the
spring at the right sUo, to secure the
benetits of this geuiul period of the
growing season. If we could adjust
things to tho greatest udvautage, it
would involve sowing tho wheat crop in
autumn so early that the plants would
spread by tilleliii;: till they occupied
tuo ground, aud had reached that point
in their growth which, by ihu vigor uud
tibaadauju of the Inados, indicates u
readiness to start into "jointing," u
thu faini-'is phrase i . by the end of
autumn and adveut ol wiuterj so that
severe irost might suspend the growth
of tho plants during winter and yet not
have power to throw llu'lil cut of the
uround by lepeatoJ freezing nud tliaw-
iiif. Plants so treated, iu.iteud of
wasting the precious immunised' the
succeeding s-pring in forming u now
essiem of roots mid in luniiiring vigor
to throw out culms, would be ready lor
vigorous growth at once, and would
head out uml ripeu irivutly IU Uilvaoce
of u crop feeble in spring by reason of
late sowinil or ri 'orous wiutcr weatlnr
In ibis latitude, if other tau.-cs did not
exist to influence the farmer in the
choice of seed time over und above that
which would likely ni'.od reasonable
lime for the plaut to attain the proper
vigor by tho adveut of winter, the au
spicious days for sowing would lie
between the first aud middle of Septem
ber. 15ut others do often occur which
make it prudent to vary tho time of
sowiug. It may be too dry for grain
to vegetate und grow kindly, uud u
plutlt whieh is fairly dwarfed iu autulii
for want of water will bo u fjcblo plaut
iu spiing. More tl.uu this, there tire
certain insect enemies which tuny visit
the wheat crop iu autumn, which always
injure and cauiietimes destroy the crop,
rrudenco may require tho farmer to
pustpone howiug to a time thai will
cleverly bring the p!:mts up ut thu
coming of tho first w hite fro.-i, it being
Ulldciftood that these insect enemies
will not coloui.e for the wiutcr in a
