TIEOF PUTTING - COLTS AT WOK.
The common practice on this point i
pretty generally wrong. It is not unusual
tofind colts put to harnessat two. years;
and at three, many consider them fit foi
steady work. A colt is not fitted for thiu
at four; and his strength should never e
tasked at three. 'The breaking proces.
should be commenced efore he isw n
ed, by accustoming. him to the 'hal
tcr, and to handling. This should neve
be mtermitted; but-the animal should al
ways know and be accustomed to his
master. If this is attended to, ho will nev
er be otherwi~e than gentle, and wvill new.
er give trouble in breaking.
If lhe is not put to work too young, wvitl
fair usage, the horse will be as good ia
twenty years of age as le is commonl y a
fibeen. One year's delay of work wl her
a colt will be compensated by three oi
four when a horse.---Prairi Farmer.
ScRATcHKES AND COLIC IN IHORSES. --I
have never failed to eurk the worst cases
ofcolic, by drenching the horse with hall
a pint. of good hop yeast. Theycast ma
be diluted with an equal quantity of warn
water. And a half pound of gunpowei

POND MUD.-the "deposite at the hot.
torn of millponds' is generally similar tc
what is called "iuck,'-' and which is foun
in various situations. The best maei
of using it as manure, would c be to lay
ui exposed to frost one winter, and ther
make it ito compost, as has ofen beer
described for m-uck or peat.
DtAniNoG.-To ascerain whether t
subsoil can be benefitted by under.drain
ing, remove the surface soil for a sna
extent, then dig a hole into the subsoil;
in this hole iater soon collects, then the
subsoil will be benefitted by draining.

following statistical account of the Tjow. Na.

magistrates or ex-magistrates; 30- proprie.

all ranks; 20 medical men; 20 operatives;
21 cultivators; 7 public writers; 83 of -ari.
ous professions, including merchants, notari
es, manufacturers, teachers, and eml loyers;
and 217 representatives whose profession is
in no wisu indicated. The number of eccle.
siastics is from 10 to 15."
There are now no 'ess than three mom

of the south, Pierre Bonaparte, the son of
