WHEN TO SOW GRASS SEED.
What Charles I.. Flint Haa to Say on This
Differing conditions of Boil and climate
are in part responsible for the many and
diverse opinions or agriculturists as to
the beat season for sowing grass seed.
Charles L. Flint, recognized authority,
in his work on "Grasses and Forage
Plants'' sums up the quest inn substan
tially as follows:
More than sixty years ago careful ex
periments were made in the hope of ob
taining such information as would settla
the question as to the time of sowing
Krass seed, and the practice of seeding
down in the fall was then comoienced by
a fw individuals. At or before that
time the practice of sowing in the spring
was universal, and the suuie custom has
very generally prevailed till within a
very few years. Both the practice and
the opinion of the Ix-st practical farm
ers in the northern ami eastern states
have changed to a considerable extent,
and it is now commonly thought best to
sow crass seed in the fall, oarly in Sep
tember if possible, though there are, and
always will be, some cases where the
practice of sowing in the spring with
grain is convenient and judicious.
It will be found that no wii is with
out its exposure lo loss; for if we 60w in
autumn and have an open anil severe
winter, with frequent changes from
comparatively warm and thawing weath
er to excessive cold, the young grass
will be likely to sutler, while if we sow
in spring with some kind of grain, as
oats, barley or rye, and have drought in
spring and summer, as we generally do,
the grass may be injured and may be en
tirely killed. No invariable rule for all
soils and seasons can lie given, but the
weight of authority seems to fix upon
early autumn as the best season to sow
grass seed, sowing it alone without a
grain crop; and the losses from proper
seeding down at that season are prola
bly considerably less in an average of
years than those which arise from a
spring sowing with grain.
A correspondent in Country Gentle
man makes the following statement: I
have kept poultry all my life -all kinds,
under almost every possible condition
but have never had my hens lav as well
as they liave all along through the fall
and now. I have experimented with
fowls to a large extent for the purpose
of getting facts, and have proved my
present system of feeding and forcing
for eggs. I chop together apples or the
peelings, raw or boiled potatoes and an
occasional onion: after chopping quite
fine 1 mix intimately about two tea
spoonfula of red pepper to ten hens, and
t uliyUhe same amount of salt. 1 pour
boiling water, only a little, over the
whole, and then mix in corn meal until
quite stiff and moderately dry. This I
feed three times a week. My pullets,
young and old bens, lay better, look bet
ter and are better than 1 ever before saw
them. The combs are red. a sure indica
tion of good thrift. The plumage is
bright and full. This is the result of the
salt and pepper. I feed afternoons oata.
barley and a little com.
Feed Bag for Horses.
So mant parsons now feed their horses
ut noon from nose bags that the best
torm is essential to understand. The
straight nose bag. w hen the animal puts
up ins head, allows ui:jh feed to fall
out. The one we now show was first
suggeated in The Globe, and will obviate
the difficulty, for the reason that one
side forms a kind of pocket, preventing
the food from dropping out.
AN ECONOMICAL KEED BAG.
The bag ought to be made of canvas,
w ith a ventilator, as is usual, and is pro
vided with two cjrds or webs to hold the
bag comfortably in its place. The large
figure shows the bag fastened to the
head of the horse, the other figure the
bag in detail. Any harness maker can
readily make the bag. anA it will te
found a great convenience on a jour
ney or for feeding in the field.
E. Williams, secretary of the New
Jersey Horticultural society, says that
the Triumph gooseberry is a great im
provement over any other variety that
will grow in that clituate.
One orchardigt advises in planting an
orchard to "set the tree leaning consid
erably to the southwest; it will bestraight
by the time it is of sufficient age to bear."
To insure a good supply of eggs make
the poultry house warm and free from
draughts and vary the food as much as
If the farmer were obliged to buy the
vegetables used in his familv through

how much money there is in a good gar
If the cow's milk is very blue in cold
weather, it is because the food that
should form rich milk and cream is used
up in maintaining animal heat; hence
the policy of sheltering animals as much
as possible in severe w-eather.
Very little phosphates or other con
centrated manures are used on our lands
which are continually under tillage, says
Peter Henderson: these are alwavs more
telling on land broken up from sod,
where the fibrous roots of the sod stand
in lieu of stable manure.
