Safe Farming. ( ,
Ono of the safest ways to farm is to
put a good portion of the farm in pas
turage aud meadows. After pastures,
are well set they cost nothing, and
they produce a great deal. In addi
tion to summer pasturago there sliould
be winter pasturage provided, of blue
gras3 and orchard grass, aud stock
will keep well most of the winter on
it. Meadows cost nothing after being
formed, and the labor of a few days
ouly is required to seed a large ' num
ber of acres, if the improved imple
ments arc used. Whatever, tends to
lessen labor, which lessens expense,
should be carefully cousidcrod in farm
ing enterprises. This is more espe
cially the case where one lives quite a
distance from town, where day labor
cannot be employed. It is very annoy
iujf to have crops ripen and go to
wastu because labor cauuot bo got at
the right time. And it is very aunoj
ing to have to board a large number of
hands, even if they can be obtained.
If the farmer can to manage as to do
tho work on the farm chiefly by the
aid of his own family, he is far more
independent, and will make more
money than by employing much help.
Hence it is we advise more pasturage
and meadows, This is tho season to
seed for meadows, and especially tim
othy meadows. Will our readers bear
this iu mind, prepare their ground.or
der their seed, and sow it this fall? If
th'4- will, we havo uo hesitation in say
ing thev will have no cause to regret
Hogs on tho Farm.
Kvery year the importance of rais
ing our own pork becomes more ap
parent on this coast. Our farmers find
that there is policy as well as profit in
raisiug pork upon the farm. Alfalfa
fields make tho best kinds of hog pas
tures at any season of tho year. Grain
field- arc easily harvested by hogs and
the -nibble fields arc gleaned by them.
On many farms, particularly where
dair ing and grain growing are carried
on together, the cost of raising a few
hogs each year is nothing, as they get
their liring upon what would other
wise go to waste ; but it pays to feed
hoif-i well; to keep them in good
gi.'Wing order from their biith till
tiif v no ready for the butcher. The
I. i-hould bo looked upon as a ueccs
s.u v ji.irt of every good farmer's stock
Ai.U while he saves what would oth
vew iso go to waste, he should also be
provided for in times when there is no
wi.fO feed. A few sections of mova
ble fence will allow any grain grower
to pasture hogs upou tho growing crop
in feelions, as convenience may sug
gest. In this way the expense cf keep
ing where often pasturage is not ob
tainable, will be greatly lessened. No
good farmer can afford to neglect the
matter of providing pasturage in this
or in some other economical manner.
While twine in the great pork-producing
States, aro dying off with the
cholera, the herds here are remarka
bly free from disease. We can' pro
duce healthier and bettor pork on this
cosm than in any other section of the
United Slates. Farmers who feel the
efieel of hard times should ttiiiik upon
this !-ul'jrcl, ami, by taking advantage
ofeveiy Mire means of profit, turn
their attention to all branches of farm
ing that will pay, and not neglect so
profitable a resource as the growing
aud fattening of swine to supply our
Apple Caltnre ia a Nutshell.
The following from an C3say by Prof.
IJeal, of tlio Michigan Agricultural
College, arc valuable suggestion for
applo-crowers everywhere: A yo.uug
tree bhoulil be treated very rriucli as
you would treat a hill of' corn, llocd
crops will auswer in a youngorchard;
sowed crops will do much harm to
youiij trees. I think it a good plan'to
keep young trees mulched., and I am
not suro but it is the best of all ways
to treat large or old trees as long as
thy live. Mulch prevents the rapid
evaporation of moisturo from th6 soil,
kcops the surface mellow prevents the
from often often freezing aud thawing
in winter and becoming overheated in
Mi'icuer. Whether or not to cultivalo
trees which have become well estab
lished depends on circumstances. I
lmo never seen an applo orchard
which I thought was injured by too
fcj..eut shallow culturc,but they may
be thy caso in some places, especially
u .vurrn climates or where the soil is
dci-p and very rich. Whether to cul
tivate or not can be told by tho looks
of the troc. If the color of the leaves
if good and tho growth all right, aud
the trees bear well, of fine fruit, they
are doing well enough, even if in
i-s. But if the leaves aro pale, the
growth of the anuual twigs much less
t an a root iu length on trees set
t m ulrc years, aud the fruit small and
poor, something is tho matter, aud
they Miflcring for want of plow, har
row (ir cultivator, or a heavy mulch or
co.;t of manure, or two or more of
the?e combined. The upper twigs of
trees set twelve to twenty years ought
to grow six to twelve or more inches
h. year. To judge of tho condition of
an apple tree is much like judging of
t)ho condition of sheep in a pasture.
Look at the sheep and not at tho pas
ture As long as the sheep are plump
and fat thev aro all right.
Prompt Pay of Eiilrcad Wortaaa.
Now that attention has been rather
peremptorily called to the state of
railroad employes, the conscience of
tho railway corporations aud tho influ
ence of public sentiment should be
EUlficb'ut to reform the oppressive
practice f putting off pay at the con
Tcnicnrc of the management. This 1
the wor-n method of financiering. La
borers of all sorts generally live upon
their pay, especially when, wages arc
being rodnrod without a correspond
ing reduction in the cost of living.
Putting off pay brings immediate dis
tress on a great many. At tho best it
compels them to pay a high price for"
credit, and this makes them steadily
fall behind. In many cases it subjects
tenants to notices from landlords to
quit. It is In many ways a cruel way
of financiering. In all private busi
ness the prompt pay of the Torkmen
is made an unvarying rule. This takes
precedence of all other payments. Yet
it should be., Liko other employers,
thev should use tho most pressing
means to raise money rather than make
suh forced loaus of their workmen.
