Save the Liquid Manure.
According to the experiments of the
best German chemists, the liquid manure
from the horse amounts to one and a half
tons per year, which contains nitrogen aud
potash worth $12.75. The cow furnishes
four tons, containing $14 worth of the
same elements. These .figures show the
importance of saving all the liquid manure
possible, even if only one-half the whole
quantity be voided at the stables. If two
horses and ten cows are " kept, ' the liquid
manure they would make, provided it
could all be saved, would be worth
$165.50, or enough to buy about four tons
of good phosphate. . If but one half of it
is voided in the bam, and the half of that
is wasted for the lack of absorbents, or
washed away by rains, it would require a
ton of phosphate to replace the loss.
Iflt will pay to build a silo for a herd
of ten cows, will it not pay to build a
cistern to bold the liquid manure of the
same number of animals? If . dry earth
or peat be used as absorbents it would re
quire at least its own weight in the ab
sorbent. Would it not be easier to pump
out and spread forty tons of liquid, than
to draw in forty tonB of dry earth and
draw out eighty tons thus saturated with
moisture. These are practical questions
lor the consideration of the farmers, and
worthy of their study.
If such a cistern were built, would it
not pay to allow soapsuds and all waste
water from the house to run into it, thus
saving whatever of fertilizing value may
be in them, and at the same time dis
posing of a material which is too often a
nuisance about the house, and which, in a
few years, may so saturate the ground
near where the sink pipes discharge as to
drain back into the well and pollute the
water supply of the house? Such a dilu
tion of the liquid from the stables would
only better fit it for application to
Saving Seed Corn.
Every farmer who has a good variety
either of field corn or sweet corn should
save his own seed, and should' try to select
it, so that it will improve nnder his culti
vation rather than grow poorer. Atten
tion to a few rules will enable him to do
this with almost absolute certainty. Seed
taken from stalks which produce two or
more good ears will produce more stalks
bearing two ears, or mo.e than that taken
from stalks bearing ooly one ear; but this
difference is Beldotn very perceptible the
first year, as corn is not self-fertilizing.
After three years' selection the difference
becomes very noticeable, and will make a
corresponding increase in yield per acre.
An ear ofo orn showing kernels of more
than one variety will produce ears which
show the mixture more plainly than
another ear, even if the intermixed ker
nels are not planted.
After seed corn is selected there in no
better way of keeping it than the old
fashioned method of braiding the husks
together and hanging it up in a dry place
out of the way ot rats and mice. Freez
ing will not hurt it after it is fully dry,
but dampness will. Even if it does not
entirely destroy the germinating power, it
weakens the plant and reduces the crop.
Different farmers will not agree upon the
vsrieiy of corn most profitable to grow, as
a kind adapted to one soil may not do as
well on another. That which will give
Urge yield upon rich soil under good cul
tivation might not perlect its growth
under less favorable circumstances; while
a kind that would grow npon poor soi
could not give as large a crop as another
kind if put in good soil. If the kernel is
large and plump there will be greater
weight of shelled corn to the bushel of
ears. If in addition to these qualities the
kernels are in straight even rows from the
butt upward, and will cover the tips of
the ear. the ears starting from the stalk
near the ground of good size, and abund
ant enough to promise a profitable yield,
then it may be considered a good variety
I have known valuable horses, as well
as other animals being killed because of
their legs having been broken. A large
proportion of them have been saved by
proper treatment. The difficulty ot man
aging an animal in the ordinary way with
a broken leg, is that it keeps straining the
leg, thus preventing the broken parts
from knitting together. If the leg is
swollen, cold water is one of the best ap
plications for removing the swelling, and
this should have immediate attention
After the bone is carefully set, encase the
fractured (also a space above and below
them) with heavy leather, something like
a boot leer. Tin or wood might answer
the same purpose. It should be large
enough to leave two inches space all
round the leg, which space should be filled
in with solid wet plaster of Paris. The
latter will harden very quickly and hold
the bone as Becurely in position as though
it were in a block of wood, still allowing a
free circulation of blood within the leg.
Improvements and Repairs.
Those who do not have wheal to bow
can perhaps find time to make what are
called permanent improvements. Ditch-
ins and draining of land, building walls
and fences, or removing those which are
not needed and cumber the ground, cut
ting down unsightly hedges, which har
bor insects and vermin, carting sand or
loam npon low land, digging muck to use
as an absorbent in stables and yards, all
may come , under this head. This is a
good season for painting buildings and
wood work of machinery and plu.
With the prepared ready-mixed paints in
the market the , farmer can do much of
this himself," if he' has not other occupa
tion, especially where the object is pre
servation of the wood rather than orna
ment. Paint and putty properly used
add greatly to the durability ol wood, and
the farm carts and wagons should receive
every year, as well as smaller
Inflamed Eyes. A horse whose eye
is inflamed from any cause should be pro
tected from the light and the eye strength
ened as much as possible by tooio appli
cations, as cold solution of three grains of
sulphate of zinc to one of water. In case
of dost, a wire frame fitted with a fine
green r gauze should be fitted-over the
eyes to arrest the dust.

Filth r ! Stables. Accord i n g to Dr. J.
C Peters,'' it is filth that causes most of
the diseases of domestic animals. ' He
mentions particularly the habit of allow
ing bedding and manure to accumulate
under the horses' and other animals in
stables. The; impure air thus generated

In many sections the labor of putting in
the wheat will be an important part of the
labor this month. The ground will need
at least one more thorough' stirring with
cultivator or harrow before the seed is
sown. It cannot be made too mellow or
be too finely pulverized for a seed bed,
and as each stirring assists in germinating
and destroying the weed seed that lie
dormant iu the soil it will allow the
plants to gel better growth before the
weeds spring up to choke them out, and
give cleaner crops next year. No seed
should be used which has not been first
carefully screened . and winnowed, for the
removal of foul stuff from it, and to take
out shrunken, light or imperfect seed of
The usual amount of seed used is from
one bushel to five pecks to the acre when
drilled in. and about half a bushel more
when sown broadcast, to make up for loss
of seed by covering too deep or not deep
enough, the proper depth being about one
and a half to two inches. If all seed could
be placed at equal distances apart, and at
equal depths, a much less amount of seed
would be sufficient. A Connecticut far
mer sowed about two hundred rods of
drili with one quart of wheat, aud har
vested eight bushels, and thought he
would have had more if birds and neigh
bors, to whom a wheat head is a curiosity,
could have been kept away from it. As
there could be over 2,600 rods of drill,
one foot apart, in an acre, it would require
a little over thirteen quarts of seed, and a
yield equal to bis would give over a hun
dred bushels per acre; or fifty bushels per
acre could be grown in drills at two feet
apart, from six and a half quarts of seed.
We do not advise farmers to go so far as
this in the matter of light seeding. They
cannot all have old garden soil to sow
their seed upon, nor give it garden culti
vation, but we give this as an illustration
of the possibilities of light seeding in good
The use of a good superphosphate has
been found to greatly stimulate the
growth of wheat; but the difference in
phosphates is but imperfectly understood
even by those who have used them for
many yea re, and many fail in their ex
periments because of not knowing how to
adapt them to their crops or soils. As a
general rule, it may be said that for this
crop ammonia or nitrogen increases the
growth of leaf and stalk, and makes it
more rapid, potash stiffens the straw and
prevents the lodging of the graio, and
phosphoric acid makes a plumper, heavier
grain, and a better flour. Of course each
of these ingredients assists in other ways;
but these hints may help the farmer to
improve his crop when he knows in what
particular he has faiied in years past.
Flinty Corn. A gentleman in the
Western part of the State writes as fol
lows: "I mail you to day an ear of corn
from seed brought from Rhode Island,
(my native State,) planted April 12th, and
gathered August 11th. Two and three
ears grow on one stalk, and at home, on
good soil, has been known to yield 70
bushels of corn to the acre." m
The corn is of the flinty variety so val
ued for conversion into breadstuff and
hominy. The ear is of medium tize, and
is well filled with grains. The cob is
usually small. AT. C. Agricultural Bul

Is one of the most fatal scourges which
afflict mankind. It is often inherited, but
may be the result of improper vaccination,
mercurial poisoning, uncleanliness, and
various other causes. Chronic Sores,
Ulcers, Abscesses, Cancerous Humors,
and, in some cases, Emaciation, and Con
sumption, result from a scrofulous condi
tion of the blood. This disease can be
cured by the use of Ayer's Sarsaparilla.
I inherited a scrofulous condition of the
b!ood, which caused a derangement of my
whole system. After taking less than
four bottles of Ayer's Sarsaparilla I am
and, for the past year, have not found it

A Sluggish Liver
Causes the Stomach and Bowels to be
come disordered, and the whole system
to suffer from debility. In all such
cases Ayer's Pills give prompt relief.
After much suffering from Liver and
Stomach troubles, I have finally been
cured by taking Ayer's Cathartic Pills.
I always find them prompt and thorough
in their action, ana their occasional use -.
keeps me in a perfectly healthy condi
tion. Iialph "Yv eeman, Annapolis, Md.
Twenty-five years ago I suffered from
a torpid liver, which was restored to
healthy action by taking Ayer's Pills.
Since that time I have never been with
out them. They regulate the bowels,
asaist digestion, and increase the appe
tite, more surely than any other medi
cine. Paul Churchill, Haverhill, Mass.
I know of no remedy equal to Ayer's
Pills for Stomach and Liver disorders.
I suffered from a Torpid Liver, and Dys
pepsia, for eighteen months. My skin
was yellow, and my tongue coated. I
had no appetite, suffered from Head
ache, was pale and emaciated. A few
boxes of Ayer's Pills, taken in moderate
doses, restored me to perfect health.
Valdo Miles, Oberlin, Ohio.
Ayer's Pills Are a superior family
medicine, They strengthen and invigv
urai mo uigesiive organs, create an
appetite, and remove the horrible de
pression and despondency resulting
. from Liver Complaint. I have used
t!:osa Pills, in my family, for years, and
tliey nevtr fail to give entire satisfac
tion. Otto Montgomery, Oshkosh,Sv"is.
