TREATMENT OP BALKY HORSES.-The
society for tbe prevention of cruelty to
nnimnls publishes tho following rules
for tho treatment of balky horses. In
* cas? ono of these planB doss not Buoceed,
try another :
1. Pat the horse upon the neck ; ex
amine the harness carefully^ first on
ono side, then on the other, speaking
encouragingly while doing so ; then
jump into the wagon and give tho word
go ; gonerally ho will obey it.
*2. ? teamster ia Mame says bo c?J?
start the worst balky horse by taking
him ont of the shafts and making him
go around in a circle till he is giddy.
If the first dance of this sort does not
cure him, a second will.
8. To cure a balky horse, simply
place your hand over the horses's nose,
and shut off his wind until he wants to
?. The brain of a horse seems to en
tertain butene idea at a time; therefore,
whipping only confirms bis stubborn
resolve. If you can, by any means,
give him a new subject to think o! you
will generally have no trouble in start
ing him. A simple remedy is to take a
couple of turns of stout twine around
the fore leg, just below the knee, tight
enough for the horse to feel, and tie in
n bow-knot. At the first check he will
probably go danoing off, and after going
a short distance, you can get down and
remove the string to prevent injury to
the tendon, in your further drive.
A CORN CROP WITHOUT KAIN.-A cor
respondent of the Farmer's Vindicator
says he last year raised eighty bushels
of corn to the acre with brit one rain,
which fell on the 15th of June. He
tolls how it was done as follows : I laid
my rows three and a half feet apart,
threw ont with a turning plough, ran a
deep furrow with a bull-tongue in the
water furrow, put sixty bushels of oot
ton seed in the bull-tongue furrows,
threw four furrows with the turi
plough, reversing the b"d, planted mj
corn very shallow on the top of tht
ridge, and cultivated shallow with shorl
ootton shovel, the first two ploughings.
Laid by with a turning plough, running
shallow nearest the corn, deeper in th?
middle of the rows. Ithen took a long
bull-tongue and subsoiled by running
two furrows in the middle of the rows,
leaving a small loose bed eight or ter
inches deep. I tried subsoiling on dif
ferent pieces of land, both in corn anc
cotton, and I fonnd in gathering th(
crop a difference of four hundred poundi
of ootton per acre in favor of the aor<

The society announces that last pprii
it expended five thousand dollars
introducing fifteen additional species

A HOPEFUL VIEW OF IMMIGRATION.
Col. Daniel. Dennet, in an article
immigration, in Our Home Journal, 1
the following1 hopeful views : In sp
of tho predictions of politicians, c
state governments, high taxes, ne*
rule, "kn-kiux" and "bandits," the i
migrants are preparing to enter I
south. . . . The seven bundi
thousand square miles of southern t
rltory yet uncultivated will be, ii
great measure, settled up by indual
. ons farmers from other lands, .1
vast mineral resources of tho soi
will be turned to valuable account. C
beautiful south is not doomed to
either Africanized, or utterly destroy
,by dcm a Rogues, or allowed to go bi
" into a wilderness state. Its future -\
be more glorious than its past. It t
yet be tho. garden spot, the glory t
prido of this continent. It will be pi
perons and rich in duo time, or
vritor does not truly -understand
"signs of the times. .

COLOR NO TEST IN JERSEY CATTLI
A correspondent of the English A,
?7 "^fcshv cultural Gazette, protcatu soumet m
ing color a test in judging Jersey cows.
Col. Waring, in the American Agricul
turist doea the same thing. The Eng
lish writer says : I have owned hun
dreds of Jersey stock, and have never,
as a rule, found the whole colored suoh
large producers as many parti-colored
ones ; in fact, by far tho most butter
producing cow I have ever possessed,
was not only parti-ooiored, but the most
ugly and ungainly beast of the lot, yet
her stock havo never failed to show
their large butter making qualities.
The true type of a Jersey oow is in faot
an animal that will not make meat.
DEPTH OF Som AND DROUGHT.-It is
ano of David DioksonB's maxims that
power in crops to resist drought is in
proportion to the depth of the soil. He
says : A cotton plant to stand two
weeks drought, must havo four inohes
loil and six inohes subsoil ; three
?veeks-six inohes soil aud same subsoil;
'our weeks-^ight inohes and tho same
rabsoiling. Plough cotton, he adds,
3very three weeks and let the hoes come
;en days behind, deaning it perfectly.
Continue plowing cotton till the 15th
jr 20th of August. Once or twice dur
ing the season, shove out the middle
with a furrow, to keep the land level.
The ploughing of cotton requires ono
and a fourth days per aero.
WonDs OP CAUTION TO THOSE Wno
NEED THEM.-Tn the first place do not
generalize too hastily ; in other words,
because certain things have happened
so and so this season, or in that field,
or in regard to this or that orop, do
not make up your minds, without fur
ther observation or experiment, that
you have got the seoret of the thing
the panerai law by whioh to bo gov
erned in all future operations. Further
experience may confirm what now seems
to be the truth in the matter, or it may
upset your present theory entirely.
ForJ instance, perhaps, you broke up
your land more deeply than usual, or
you subsoiled under your cotton beds.
Now suppose your .crop is not so good
where you ploughed deep, or subsoiled,
as where yon did not. Have you
proved that deep ploughing or subsoil
ing, as tho oas? may bo, are bad prac
tices ? By no means. Another farmer,
perhaps your neighbor, may have done
the same thing with exaotlv opposite
results. He says deep ploughing pays,
but, like yourself, he generalizes too
hastily. You have neither of you de
termined anything, except for the ono
field, tho one crop, and the ono season,
whioh the experiment covers. The
thing to be found out by a largo num
ber of other experiments and observa
tions is, under just what conditions of
soil, season and crop, these operations
are profitable, and how the work muBt
bo done to make them profitable. So
A, we will suppose, tries clover and
fails entirely. Clover oan not be grown
in the south, he savs ; but B tneB clover
and harvests two tons to the acre, and
is firmly convinced that the farmer who
does not believe in clover is a poor be
nighted "old fogv." But, perhaps,
next year B's clover crop will be out off
by an untimely drought. What then?
Simply this ; it takeB more than one or
two experiments to settle suoh ques
tions in farming, or furniBh any gen
eral rule of praotioal value.
What the War Cost the South.
A correspondent of the New York
Evening PoBt," who has a turn for statis
tics, gives some highly interesting facts
and figures connected with the loases
the south sustained by the war, show
ing the diminution of assessed personal
property between 1860 and 1870 by
reason of the emancipation of the blacks.
Alabama, with two hundred and seventy
seven millions of personal estate in
1860, returns but thirty.eight millions in
1870-a decrease of two hundred and
thirty-nine- millions. Arkansas is re
duced from one hundred and'sixteen to
thirty-one millions in this respect.
Mississippi returns three hundred and
fifty-one millions in 1860 against only
fifty-nine millions in 1870-a deorease
of two hundred and ninety-two millions;
and South Carolina presents even a
greater difference, returning three hun
dred and fifty-nine millions assessed
personalty in 1860, and sixty-four in
1870, being a loss of two hundred and
ninety-five millions. Georgia in 1860,
returned a larger amount of assessed
personal estate than any other state in
the union, namely four hundred and
thirty-eight millions, In 1870 this
total was changed to eighty-three
millions, a loss of three hundred and
fiftyvflve millions. Missouri, though a
slave state, has suffered comparatively
little. Her personalty, as assessed in
1860. was one hundred and thirteen
millions. In 1870 it was increased to
ono hundred mid thirty-sovpn millions.
Taking the aggregate estimated true
wealth of all the slaveholding states in
1860, it presents a total of six thousand
seven hundred'and forty-six millions of
dollars, In 1870 the same aggregate
falls to five thousand four hundred and
sixty-two millions, showing a loss of
twelve hundred and eighty-four millions.
The non-slaveholding states, on the con
trary, show an immense increaso during
the same period. In 186.0 their aggre
gate estimated true wealth was nine
thousand three hundred and forty
millions, and in 1870, twenty-four
thousand three hundred and sixty mil
lions ; being an increase of fifteen thou
sand and twenty millions. If we look
at the wealth of the lato slave states in
1850 there appears a great increaso from
that period to 1860. The total in 1850
was twenty-nine hundred and forty
seven millions ; and in 1860, six thousand
seven hundred and forty- six millions
showing on inorease of thirty-seven
hundred and ninety-niuo millions, or
one hundred and twenty-eight per cont.
Had the war not taken place-, the samo
ratio of increase would have fixed the
wealth of tho southern states in 1870 at
fifteen thousand three hundred and
eighty-one millions, or more than two
and a quarter times what - it actually
proved to be. And yet, with even all
these enormous losses, tho south would
now be happier and more prosperous
than at any time in her history out for
the corrupt and tyrannous rule with
which she has been cursed since the
war. But peace has come at last, and
tho next decade will show a glorious

MINERS AND MATERIALISM.-Miners
are a fine symbol of materialism. They
live in the earth-earth is beneath their
feet, around and above them ; no firma
ment too high to be reached with a lad
der ; many strange thiogs, but none that
may not be handled ; a world of fao*s,
wherein they stand self-contained and
gloomily serene, As we, sitting in
doors, pity the wayfarers exposed to the
inolemenoy without, so do thoBe miners
pity and despieo UB, exposed to the
blue and white glare of the bold heav
ens, stared out of countenance by sun
and moon, blown by winds and wet with
rain. Who eon sympathise with the
sky ? Yet sooner or later all must re
visit the surface, if only to bo buried
LIBERIA A FAILURE.-A letter from
Liberia states that the colony does not
realize the expectations of its founders.
It does not hold its own, if it is not
actually declining. The chief cause
of its failure ii the American emancipa
tion. Since our great war there have
been but few emigrants, and the old
settlers seem to have lost their earlier
ambition and dropped into unthrifty
habits. The line of difference between
tho colonists and the natives is growing
less marked every year, and by the
lapse of the former to their native con
dition. This showB how difficult it is
tc civilize a people. Race is moro than I
culture or religion.
GUINEA FOWLS FOR TUE TABLE.-Tho
Guinea fowl is the richest and moat pal
atable of all oar domestic poultry. We
can remember of no game bird among
the Gallina) that surpasses it, and when
our grouse and partridges and prairie
ohiokens become extinct, SB thoy will by
and by, tho Guinea fowl will provo a
perfect substituto for them, and as it
breeds freely and requires but little
oare, it will ne practicable to breed it
in all sections. After the bird attains
an age of two years it needs some other
process of cooking than by roasting,
but with an ngo of lesa than two years,
a roasted Gainea fowl will discount
anything else in the odible lino we can
GERMAN E?E-WINDOWS.- Dormer win
dows exisi in other places besides Sax
ony, but tho eye-windows are, so far ns
I know, Mr, Julien Hawthorne says, a
peculiarly German institution. It
shows a grotesque kind of humor to in
vent such things. They are single
panes about a foot square, standing
upright in the body of tho roof, ?which
curves over them like a Bleepy eyelid,
and broadens like a fat cheek below.
The life-likeness is often enhanced by
various ingenious additions ; and a
couple of such windows, with a chimney
between, give the house a curiously hu
man aspect. The effect is not carried
out in the body of tho building ; but, in
f aot, all the vitality of the houso is con
centrated in the top part of it, as if it
rose up from below, like oxygen bub
bles, and collected beneath the roof.
? The baBemont is torpid, the middle
floors are stiff and taciturn, but the at
tics draw the very breath of lifo.
REMEDY FOR POISON BY IVY.-It
seems to ma that I read all kinds of
oures for ivy poison except tho right
one. I have always endeavored to keep
it before the publio, but have failed. It
is to dissolve sugar of lead-a bit tho
size of a hazlennt-in half a teacup of
milk or warm water. Apply as warm as
can be easily borne with a soft, linty
piece of linen rag. Three or four ap
plications are sufficient to effect a eure.
Ii the poison is on the face, and nearing
the eyes or month, thia astringent wash
may be constantly applied. It is a
marvelous cure, and by watching closely
one can see the fevered bli?terB turn
I from white to yellow during the appli
cation. This remedy for ivy poison
should prevent a great deal of suffering.
It is well where a member of a family
is easily poisoned to keep sugar of lead
in the house all the time. Let it be
labeled and kept where it can be found
the moment it is wanted. Keep it well
wrapped np, that it may not lose its
strength.-Cor. Ohio Farmer.
TUE BEST DISINFECTANTS.-There are
three powerful disinfectants; carbolic
aoid, out its smell is objectionable,
chlorine and permanganate of potash ;
those last two are quite expensive.
These disinfectants aot by combining
with deleterious substances and ren
dering them harmless, while anticeptics
prevent and arrest the decomposition of
animal substances The moat common
and available disinfectant and deodor
izer is copperas, crude copperas, soUl
? by druggists at a few cents a pound,
under the name of sulphate of iron,
one pound to two gallons of water, to be
used as often ns necessary to render all
odors imperceptible, acting at che same
time as an antiseptic, deodorizer, and
disinfectant, and if instantly thrown
over what passes from the body in chol
era, is one of tho cheapest and best
means known for preventing its com
munication to others. The only per
fect disinfectant, however, is habitual
cleanliness and thorough ventilation ;
next to tbat is a dry heat of two hun
dred and fifty degrees.
PEAR-BLIGHT REMEDY.-Mr. G. F.
B. Leighton, president of the Norfolk
(Va.) Horticultural society, is authority
for tho statement that the remedy for
pear-blight . recommended by tho com
missioner of agrionlturo has proved
successful in eastern Virginia. Tin's
remedy is made and applied as follows :
One pound of sulphur added to six or
eight pounds of earbolato of limo, re
duced to the consistency of thick white
wash, and applied to the diseased parts,
and where the bark is diseased-remove
the outer portion before making the
application. Mr. L. says he has used
this with magical effect of blighted or
diseased trees, but writes to the Ameri
can Farmer that in, future he will " uso
the formula recommended by the Hon.
Wm. Saunders, of Washington, who
has charge of the publio grounds, as
being more economical than tho above,
on account of tho volatile nature of
Carbolic) acid : To half a bushel of limo
add fonr pounds of sulphur-si ak o to
tho COB ni n tc ney of whi ter tish, and whou
applied, ad?! half an onhoe of carbollo
aoid to each gall m of wash, and apply
as above directed."
Small Farms in Favor.
The New York Bulletin says that
there seems to be a marked tendency
among California farmers to abandon
the old ranch system, by which im
mense tracts of land were overran, and
bat partially occupied without tilling or
improvements, under the ownership and
management of one party, and to sob
divide them into small farms. Thia is
but the natural resnlt of enhanced value
of f firming land, and is what has always
occurred in tho progress and develop
ment of new countries. Yet, its appli
cation to California will mark a new era
ia the farming industries of the Paoiflo
coast. Tho usual causes have forced
this step ; for, in addition to the en
hanced lost of land, it ?B found to be so
much more profitable to till and culti
vate as well in California as elsewhere.
In other words, the same amount of
labor and capital thus expended return
greater interest on the outlay than when
made in the old way apon the rauch
system. It is even admitted that the
grazing industries of that state find it
more profitable also to adopt the same
system, and already it is said that the
immense flocks of sheep are beginning
to disappear, as have the groat herds
of cattfo that formerly roamed over the.
unoccupied and even unowned plains of
HOUSE BREEDING IN BUSSIA.-There
are seven crown Btuds in Russia and one
in Poland, containing 'altogether 3,602
brood mares and horses, with twelve
orown stables having 945 stallions. The
Ohrjauov stud, purchaped by the orown
thirty years ago from the heirs of Connt
Orlon", is divided into three seotionB,
one devoted to pure English horaeB,
another to saddle horses, and the third
to trotting horses. The Derkuli stnd
breeds English carriage horseB, the new
Alexandros, a kind of half blood paddle
horse, the Simarevsk thoroughbred
Arabs, and the Strjeletzl Oriental sad

private studs, having 6,496 stallions and
about 70,000 brood mares, besides up
ward of 69,000 stallions and 620,000

creased on private estates since the
emancipation of the serfs, and many of
the studs have been broken np, and have
passed in part into tho hands of the
peasantry. In Bnssia there are 380
horso fairs, at whioh about 160,000 ani
