TREATMENT OF BALKY HORSES.--The
society for tho prevention of cruelty to
Animals publishes the following rules
for tho treatment of ballsy horRes. Tn
caso ono of these plans docs not Buccced,
trv another :
1. Pat the horse upon tho neok ; ex
amino the harness oarcfullyi Grst on
ono side, then on tho other, speaking
encouragingly whilo doing so ; thou
jump into tho wagon and givo tho -word
go; gouerally ho will obey it.
2. A teamster in Maine says ho can
start tho worBt balky horse by taking
him out of the shafts and making him
go around in n circle till ho is giddy.
If tho first danco of this sort does not
euro him, a second will.
3. To cure a balky horso, simply
placo your hand over tho horses's nose,
aird shut off his wind until ho wants to
.1. Tho brain of a horso seems to en
tertain bnt one idea at a timo ; therefore,
whipping only confirms his stubborn
resolve. If you can, by any means,
givo him a now subject to think of you
will generally have no trouble in start
ing him. A simple remedy is to take a
couple of hums of stout twine around
the fore log, just below tho knee, tight
onough for tho boree to feel, and tie in
a bow-knot. At tho first check be will
probably go dancing off, and after going
a short distance, you can get down and
remove the string to prevent injury to
tho tendon, in your fnrther drive.
A CORN CROP WITHOUT EATN.-A cor
respondent of the Farmer's Vindicator
says ho last yenr raised eighty bushels
of corn to tho aero with but one rain,
which fell on the 15th of June. He
tolls how it was done ns follows : I laid
my rows three and a half foot apart,
threw out with a turning plough, ran a
deep furrow with a bull-tongue in the
water furrow, put sixty busholB of cot
ton seed in the bull-tojgue furrows,
threw four fnrrows with tho turn
plough, reversing tho Ivd, planted my
corn very shallow on tho top of the
ridge, and onltivatod shallow with short
eotton shovel, tho first two ploughings.
Laid by with a turning plough, running
shallow nearest tho com, deeper in the
middle of tho rows. Ithen took a long
bull-tongH? and subsoiled by running
two furrows iu tho middle of the rows,
leaving a small loose bed eight or ton
inches deep. I tried subsoiling on dif
ferent piecos of land, both in com and
cotton, and I fonnd in gathering the
crop n difference of four hundred pounds

A Bio CORN FARM IN ILLINOIS. -The
Nashville Union and American quoteB
the WeBtorn Bural to the effect that Mr.
M. L. Sullivont, a farmer in central
Illinois, was, at tho timo of writing,
proparing to plant hi? corn. His men
wero ploughing five hundred acres a
day, using two hnudred and fifty teams,
and ho had then ready about twelve
thousand . acres. Dr. Leo adds : Mr.
Sullivant ie one of the largest and most
systematic farmers in the United States,
who made a present to a railway com
pany of $28,000 to construct an iron
road to and across his plantation of
some forty thousand acres. He emi
grated from tho Scioto bottoms, near
Columbus, whore, like many Ohio
farmers, he learnt tho art of raising
corn at a small cost to the prod near.
At tho time of the organization of tho
United States agricultural society ho
was a distinguished Ohio farmer, yet
not unwilling to sell a large estate at
ono hundred dollars per aero to lay tho
for ndation of a much broader ono on
tho rich prairies of contral UlinoiB, at
tho government price for land.
FOREIGN BIRDS FOR AMERICA.-A very
deserving institution has recently been
established in Cincinnati, under the
title of Cincinnati Acclimatization So
ciety, its object being to effect the intro
duction of such foreign birds as aro
worthy of note for their song or their
services to the farmer and horticulturist.
The Manufacturer and Builder says :
The society announces that la?t spring
it oxpended five thousand dollars in
introducing fifteen additional species of
birds, and that it has already success
fully accomplished the acclimatization
of tho European sky lark, whioh is
stated to bo now a prominent featnro of
. the summer landscape iu tho vicinity of
Cincinnati. Among the species which
it is proposed to introduce is the Eu
ropean titmouse, considered abroad as
one of tho most successful foes of insects
injurious to vegetation.
A HOPEFUL VIEW OF IMMIGRATION.
Col. Daniel Dennet, in an artiole on
immigration, in Our Homo Journal, has
the following hopeful views : In spite
of the predictions of politicians, bad
state governments, high taxes, negro
rule, "kn-klux" and "bandits," the im
migrants are preparing to enter tho
south. . . . The seven hundred
thousand square miles of southern ter
ritory yet uncultivated will bo, in a
great measure, settled up by industri
ous farmors from other lands. Tho
vast mineral reeorrces of tho sonth
will be turned to valuablo account. Our
beautiful south is not doomed to bo
either Africanized, or utterly destroyed
by demaaognes, or allowed to go baok
"into a wilderness state. Its fnture will
be more glorious than its past. It will
yet bo tho. garden spot, tho glory and
prido of this continent. It will bo pros
perous and rich in duo time, or tho
vritor does not truly understand tho
"signs of tho times.
TOBACCO IN FLORIDA.-According to
the monthly report of tho department
of agriculture, Gadsden county, Florida,
has prodnccd for forty years a variety
grown from seed obtained in Cubp,,
having a small, narrow loaf, and pos
sessing to a remarkable degree tho pe
culiar aroma and delioato fragrance so
highly prized in tho Havana cigar. The
report adds : Since tho advent of Ger
man buyers, an artiolo was introduced
whioh produces the "Florida wrapper,"
and is now tho main growth. Its leaves
are sometimes three feet in length and
twenty inches in breadth, of a fine silky
texture, admirably adapted to use as
wrappers, tho coarser leaves being ns od
very acceptably as fillers. Another
variety, medium in size, introduced

somewhat pungent makes a stronger
COLOR NO TEST IN JER-JEV CATTLE.
A correspondent of tho English Agri
?ulturnl Gazette, protea lu against muk
iug color a test in judging Jersey cows.
Col. Waring, in tho American Agricul
turist does tho snme thiDg, The Eng
lish writer says : I have owned hun
dreds of Jorsoy stock, and have never,
as a rule, found tho whole colored such
largo produoers as many parti-colored
ones ; in fact, by far tho most butter
producing cow ? havo ever possossod,
was not only parti-colored, but the moBt
ugly and ungainly beast of the lot, yet
her stock havo never failed to Bhow
their largo butter making qualities.
Tho true typo of a Jersey cow is in fact
an animal that will not niako meat.
DEPTH OP Som AND DKOUGHT.-It is
ono of David Dioksons's maxims that
power in crops to resist drought is in
proportion to tho depth of tho soil. He
sayB : A cotton plant to stand two
weeks drought, must havo four inches
soil and six inches subsoil ; three
weeks-six inches soil and same Bubsoil;
four weeks-eight inches and tho same
subsoiling. Plough cotton, ho adds,
every three weeks and let tho hoes como
ten dayB behind, cleaning it perfectly.
Continuo plowing cotton till the 15th
or 20th of August. Once or twice dur
ing the Beason, shove out tho middle
with a furrow, to keep the land level.
Tho ploughing of cotton requires ono
and a fourth days per acre.
WOKDS ov CAUTION TO THOSE WHO
NEED THEM.-In tho first placo do not
generalizo too hastily ; in other words,
because certain things havo happened
so and so this season, or in that field,
or in regard to this or that crop, do
not make np your minds, without fur
ther observation or experiment, that
you havo got tho secret of tho thing
the general law by whioh to bo gov
erned in all future operations. Further
experience may confirm what now seems
to bo tho truth in tho matter, or it may
upset your present theory entirely.
ForJ instance, perhaps, you broke up
your land moro deeply than usual, or
you subsoiled under your cotton bed?.
Now suppose your .crop ?B not t.o good
where you ploughed deep, or subsoiled,
as where you did not. nave you
proved that deep ploughing or subsoil
ing, ns thc case may bo, are bad prac
tices ? By no merms. Another farmer,
perhaps your neighbor, may havo dono
the samo thing with exnctlv opposite
results. He says deep ploughing pays,
but, like yourself, he generalizes too
hastily. You have neither of you de
termined anything, oxcept for tho ono
fiold, tho ono crop, and tho ono season,
which the oxporimcnt covers. Tho
thing to bo found out by a largo num
ber of othor experiments and observa
tions is, undor just what conditions of
soil, season and crop, these operations
are profitable, and how tho work must
bo dono to make them profitable. So
A, we will suppose, tries clover and
fails entirely. Clover oan not be grown
in tho Bouth, he savs ; but B tries dover
and harveBtB two tons to the aero, and
is firmly convinced that the larmer who
does not believo in clover is a poor be
nighted "old fogv." But, perhaps,
next year B's clover crop will be out off j
by an untimely drought. What then ?
Simply thia ; it takes moro than one or
two experiments to Bettie such ques
tions in farming, or furnish any gen
eral rule of practical value.
What the War Cost the South.
A correspondent of the Now York
Evening PoBt, who has a turn for statis
tics, gives some highly interesting facts
and figures connected with tho losses
the south sustained by the war, show
ing the diminution of assessed personal
property between 1860 and 1870 by
reason of tho emancipation of the blacks.
Alabama, with two hundred and seventy
seven millions of personal estate in
18G0, returns but thirty-eight millions in
1870-a deoreaso of two hundred and
thirty-nine millions. Arkansas is re
duced from one hundred and sixteen to
thirty-ouo millions in this respect.
Mississippi returns three hundred and
fifty-one millions in 1800 against only
fifty-nine millions in 1870-a decrease
of two hundred and ninety-two millions;
and South Carolina presents oven a
greater difference, rotnrning three hun
dred and fifty-uino millions assessed
personally iu 18G0, and sixty-four in
1870, being a loss of two hundred and
ninety-five millions. Georgia in I860,
returned a largor amount of assessed
personal estate than any other state in
tho union, namely four hundred and
thirty-eight millions. In 1870 this
total was changed to eighty-three
millions, a IOBS of three hundred and
fiffr^fivo millions. Missouri, though a
slave ?tate, has suffered comparatively
little. Her personalty, as assessed in
I960, was one hundred and thirteen
millions. In 1870 it was increased to
ono hundred and thirty-seven millions.
Taking the aggregate estimated true
wealth of all the slave-holding states in
18G0, it presents a total of six thousand
seven hundred and forty-six millions of
dollars. In 1870 tho same aggregate
falls to five thousand four hundred and
sixty-two millions, showing a loss of
t welve hundred and eighty-four millions.
The non-slaveholding states, on tho con
trary, show an immense increase during
the same period. In 1860 their aggre
gate estimated true wealth was nine
thousand threo hundred and forty
millions, and in 1870, twenty-four
thouBand three hundred and sixty mil
lions ; being an increase of fiftoon thou
sand and twenty millions. If we look
nt tho wealth of the lato slave states in
1850 there appears a great increaso from
that period to 1860. Tho total in 1850
was twonty-nino hundred and forty
seven millions ; and in I860, six thousand
Bovcn hundred and forty-six milliono
showing an increase of thirty-seven
hundred and ninoty nino millions, or
ono hundred and tw'onty-oight per cont.
Had tho war not taken plaoo, tho sr.me
ratio of increaso would havo fixed tho
wealth of tho southorn states in 1870 at
ufteen thousand throe hundred and
eighty-one millions, or more than two
' and a quarter timos what it actually
proved to bo. And yet, with even all
these enormous losses, tho south would
now be happier and moro pro?perous
than at any time in her history but for
the corrupt and tyrannous rule with
which ?ho has beoa cursed since tho
v?ar. But penco has como at last, an>I
tho next decade will show a glorious

MINERS AND MATERIALISM.-Miners
are a fine symbol of materialism. They
live iu the earth-earth is bcuoath their
feet, around and above them ; no firma
ment tco high to bo reached with a lad
der ; many strange things, but none that
may not bo nannied ; a world of fao>s,
wherein they stand self-contained and
gloomily serene. As wo, sitting in
doors, pity the wayfarers exposed to the
inclemency without, so do these miners
pity and despise us, exposed to the
blue and white glare of tho bold heav
euo, stared out of countenance by ann
and moon, blown by winds and wet with
rain. Who can sympathise with tho
sky ? Yet sooner or later all must re
visit the Burface, if only to bo buried
LIBERIA A FAILURE.-A lotter from
Liberia Btatcs that tho colony docs not
realizo tho expectations of its founders.
It does not hold its own, if it is not
aotually declining. Tho chief cauBo
of its failure is tho American emancipa
tion. Sinoo our groat war there have
been but few emigrants, and the old
settlers seem to have loBt their earlier
ambition and dropped into unthrifty
habits. The lino of difference between
the colonists and the natives is growing
less marked every year, and by the
lapse of tho former to their nativo con
dition. This shows how difficult it is
to civilize z noonie. Race is more thau
culture or religion.
GUINEA FOWLS FOR TOE TABLE.-Tho
Guinea fowl is the richest and most pol
atable of all our domestic poultry. We
eau remember of no game bird among
the Gallina) that surpasses it, aud when
our grouse and partridges and prairie
chickens become extinct, as they will by
and by, tho Guinea fowl will provo a
perfect Bubstitnte for them, and SH it
breeds freely and requires but little
care, it will bo practicable to breed it
in all sectiouB. After the bird attains
an ago of two yearB it needs some other
process of cooking than by roasting,
but with an ago of ICKH than two years,
a roasted Gninea fowl will discount
anything olso in tho edible lino we can
GEIIMAN EVE-WINDOWS.-Dormer win
dows oxisb in other places besides Sax
ony, but the eye-windows are, so far as
3 know, Mr. Julien Hawthorne says, a
peculiarly German institution. It
B1IOW8 a grotesque kiud of humor to in
vent Buch things. They are single
parca about a foot square, standing
upright in tho body of tho roof, whioh
curves over them Uko a Bleepy eyelid,
and broadens like a fat chook below.
Tho lifo-likenes8 is often euhanccd by
variuus ingenious additions ; nnd a
couple of such windows, with a chimney
between, givo tho house a curiously hu
man aspect. The effect is not carried
ont in the body of tho building ; but, in
faot, all the vitality of tho houso is con
centrated in the top part of it, as if it
rose up from below, like oxygen bub
bles, and collected beneath tho roof.
Tho basement is torpid, the middle
floors are stiff and taoiturn, but tho at
tics draw the very breath of life.
REMEDY FOR TOISON BY IVY. - It
seoras to mo that I read all kinds of
cures for ivy poison except thc right
one. I have always endeavored to keep
it bef?se the public, but have failed. It
is to dissolve sugar of lead-a bit tho
sizo of a hazlenut-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 offoct a onre.
If the poison is on the face, and nearing
the eyes or mouth, this astringent wash
may be constantly applied. It is a
marvelous cure, and by watching closely
ono can BOO tho fevered blistors turn
from white to yellow during tho appli
cation. This remedy for ivy poison
Bhould provent 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 bo fouud
tho moment it is wanted. Keep it well
wrapped up, that it may not lose its
strength.-Cor. Ohio Farmer.
THE BEST DISINFECTANTS.-There aro
three powerful disinfectants; carbolic
acid, bnt its smell is objectionable,
chlorine and permanganate of potash ;
thone last two aro quite expensive.
These disinfectants act by combining
with deleterious substances and ren
dering them harmless, while anticeptics
prevent and arrest tho decomposition of
animal substances The most common
and availablo disinfestant and deodor
izer is copperas, crude copperas, sold
by druggists at a few cents a pound,
j under the name of snlpbate of iron,
ono pound to two gallons of wator, to bo
I used as often as uecossary to render all
odors imperceptible, noting at the samo
time as an antiseptic, deodorizer, aud
disinfectant, and if instantly tiirown
over what passes 'rom the body in chol
era, is ono of tho cheapest and best
means kuown for preventing its com
munication to others. The only per
fect disinfectant, however, is habitual
cleanliuens and thorough ventilation ;
next to that is a dry heat of two hun
dred and fifty degrees.
FEAit-BLioirr REMEDY.-Mr. G. F.
B. Leighton, president of tho Norfolk
(Va.) Horticultural society, is authority
lor tho statement that the remedy for
poar-blight recommended by tho com
missioner of agriculture has proved
successful in eastern Virginia. This
remedy ?B made and applied ns follows :
One pound of sulphur added to B?X or
eight pounds of carbolato of lime, re
duced to the consistency of thick white
wash, and applied to the diseased part?,
and where the bark is diseased remove
tho outer portion before making the
application. Mr. L. says he haB used
this with magical effect of blighted or
diseased trees, but writes to the Ameri
can Farmer that in future he will '* uso
tho formula recommended by tho Hon.
Wm. Saunders, of Washington, who
has charge of tho public grounds, aa
hoing moro economical than thc above,
on account of tho volatile nature of
carbolic acid : To half a bushol of limo
add four pounds of sulphur-slako to
tho consistency of Whitewash, and whou
applied, add half an ounce of carbolio
acid to each gallon of wash, and apply
aB abovo directed."
Small Farms in Favor.
The New York Bulletin says thnt
there seems to be a marked tendency
among California farmers to abandon
tbo old ranch system, by which im
mense tracts of land were overran and
but partially ocoupied without tilling or
improvements, under tho ownership and
management of one party, and to sub
divide them into small farms. This is
but the natural result of enhance?! value
of farming land, and is what hus always
occurred in the progress and develop- |
ment of cow eountriep. Yet, its appli
cation to California will mark a new era
in tho farming industries of the Pacific
coast. The usual causes have forced
this step ; for, in addition to the en
hanced lost of land, it is found to be so
muoh more profitable to till and culti
vate as well in California as olsowhere.
In other words, the bame amount of
labor and capital thus expended retara
greater interest on the outlay than when
made in the old way upon the ranch
Bjstom. It ?B even admitted that the
grazing industries of that state find it
mere profitable also to adopt the same
system, and already it ?B said that the
immonso flocks of sheep are beginning
to disappear, as have the groat herds
of cattle that formerly roamed over the
unoccupied and even unowned plains of
HORSE BREEDING IN RUSSIA.-There
are seven crown studs in Russia and one
in Poland, containing 'altogether 3.G02
brood mares aud horses, with twelve
crown Btablea having 915 stallions. Th?
Chrjauov stud, purchased by the crown
thirty years ago from tho hoirs of Count
OrlofT, is divided into three sections,
ono devoted to pure English horses,
another to saddle horses, and tho third
to trotting horses. Tho Derkuli stud
breeds English carriapo horses, tho now
Aloxondrov, a kind of half blood saddle
horse, the Simarevsk thoroughbred
Arabs, and the Strjeletzl Oriental sad
dle horses. In the Orenburg stud horses
are bred for tho light cavalry and artil
lery. Russia further possesses 2,444
private studs, having G,49G stallions and
about 70,000 brood mares, besides up
ward of 09,000 stallions and 020,000
brood mares in tho Copaok and steppe
" t?banos." Horse breeding has de
creased on privato estates since the
emancipation of tho serfp, and many of
the studs have boen broken up, and have
passod in part into tho hands of tho
peasantry. In Russia there are 380
horse fairs, at which about 150,000 ani
mals are annually sold, out of about
2(53,000 brought to market. The aver
age price of a horse is GO roubles?-about
