Hints to Farmers.
It is much to be wished that our far
mers were more desirous to possess
good, fertile, produelive farms, than
large farms. If farmers in our coun
try, instead of increasing the number of
their acres, would bestow more care
and extcnse in the best possible man
ner, on every acre they already possess,
they would live easier, and become
richer and happier. It has often been
remarked especially by those who have
travelled abroad, that the great fault of
our American farmers lies in their
eager desire to add field to field, which
often impoverishes them, keeps them in
debt, and renders them unable to bring
any ol their land into the highest and
most profitable state of cultivation.
lhe advice of Dean owift should be
treasured up by every good farmer.
lhis distinguished man said, "Y hocver
can make two cars of corn or two
blades of grass grow upon a spot of
ground where only one crew before,
docs more essential service to his coun
try than the whole race of politicians

Keep Stock In tiood Condition.
It is of crcat advantage to the farmer
to keep his stock in good condition, not
only in the first of the w inter, but thro'
the season of feeding, till they can sub
sist well abroad.
An animal may be kept short of food
in the latter part of the fall or first of
winter, at a very small saving in food,
but at a great loss in the condition of
the animal. It is like salting a hog
with a pound of salt a saving of salt
but a loss of Bacon. One dollar saved
by short keeping of animals, w ill be a
loss of five dollars. It will cost more to
keep the animals through the whole
winter, and the profit from the animals,
cither in growth or milk will be lost.
The peculiarly rich cream of Devon
shire, England, called clouted cream, is
obtained by using zinc pans of a pecu
liar construction, consisting of an upper
and lower apartment. The milk is put
into the upper apartment ; and after it
has stood twelve hours, an equal cjuanti
ty of boiling water is introduced into
the lower one. At the end of another
twelve hours, the cream is taken ofl"
much more easily and perfectly than in
the common way, and is also more
abundant and richer. The result of
twelve experiments carefully made
were as follows: Jour gallons of milk
treated as above, gave iu twenty-four
hours, lour and a half pints of cream,
which yielded, after churning fifteen
minutes, forty ounces of butter; four
gallons treated in the usual way, gave
in forty-eight hours, four pints of cream,
which yielded, after churning ninety
minutes, thirty-six ounces of butter.
The increase in the quantity of cream is
12 1-2 per cent.
The same principles may be applied
in the use of common pans. It would
be very easy, for instance, to prepare
some kind of trough, or tin, perhaps, or
even wood, into which the pans could
be set, and hot water afterwards intro
duced. As a close trough would be much
better than an open one, you may have
a cover in which to set the pans. An
ingenious Yankee tinman would soon
make a range in this way, sullicient for
a common dairv, at no very great ex
pense. It would last indefinitely. If it
is true, that you would thus get some
two pounds more butter a week from
each cow, the apparatus and the trou
ble would soon be paid for ; to say no
thing of the time saved in churning.
We do not sec why zinc pans, which
are said to be decidedly prefernbl to anv
other for the dairy, with the tin range
as above, would not be quite as good as
the complicated and expensive Devon
hire pans. And it would be easy lor
l dairy woman to satisfy herself re
specting the principle, without cither.
Uy using cold water instead ol hot, tho
range would serve to keep milk sweet
in warm weather.
Oxalic Acid. It may be important
to mention, especially in this suicide lo
ving age, that two ounces ol magnesia,
mixed with about a quart of water, or
the same quantity of common w hiting,
thrown into tho stomach by any means,
(the wtomaoh pump being readiest and
most pre fcrabloon such tx-casions,) will
effectually neutralize and render incit
this most active poon.
