How to Lift Plants.
Got some good rott%l manure from
the barnyard and mix it with equal
parts of sandy loam. Then of the
plants you are about to dig up, cut off
all the longest branches and trim very
close. Don't be afraid to cut it, as

commence to'grow again. Now dig it
up, being careful not to break off any
of the tender roots, as it is those that
f will supply the plant with the strength
to start again. Get a pail of water
and wash the soil completely off, dipping
the plant up and down until all
the soil has left the roots. This will
remove all worms and every rootlet
touching the new soil will be ready to
start. Then pot and water it, and
stand it in the shade for at least three
days. In a short time the plant will
commence to show signs of new life.

Siting and Curing Clover.
x'ror. ^ A. Kaapp gives the following
directions for cutting and curing
clover: Start the mower at 3 o'clock
p. m., and cut until 8 in the evening.
If it should rain the following day
the clover would not bo wilted enough
to receive any great damage; should
the weather be fair use the tedder
from 10 to 12 the morning after the
clover is cut; immediately after dinner
rake into small win-rows; place
in shock bofore the dew falls; on the

We have in red clover one of the
most valuable fodder plants in the
world, but our present method of curing
by exposure for a long time to a
hot sun reduces the crop in value to
pod hay and in flavor to an insipid
weed. A ton of the best clover hay
costs the farmer less than one-third
that of a ton of corn, and all things
considered, its food value is about the
Save the Corn Stalks.
Of the many things I admire in my
German neighbor, none excite my respect
more than the very successful
way in which he manages his corn
His plan does not differ from that
generally adopted. lie husks his corn
in the field, ties the stalks into bundles,
stands these bundles into stooks,
and wiien dry, draws them into the
barn, or makes them into a high, narrow
stack, that is pretty much all roof
The Deacon and I do the same thing.
The only difference is, that we propose
to draw them in to-morrow, or the
next day, or as soon as convenient,
and the result is, that something happens
to postpone the work, and before
we know it the stalks are wet, and we
must wait until they get dry again.
And sometimes we repeat this process
of waiting for a convenient time, and
November snow finds the stalks still
in the field. Not so Mr. Jacobs. He
does not wait His stalks are fre
qnenuy secure in tne Darn or stack,
before some of us commence to husk.
His cows and young stock are in the
field, picking up the stray ears and
scattered fodder, before they are injured
by the rain, and before we realize
what has been done, the field is
harrowed to level down the stubbs,
and the next day the boys are ploughing,
and getting the land ready to sow
barley next spring.?Joseph Harris in
There is in some localities a growing
sentiment to the effect that producers
of pork by wholesome processes
should not be compelled to compete
with the degraded product from city

setts Ploughman considers this subject
at length, intelligently, and shows
that it touches not only producers, but
consumers and the general welfare,
and has even a bearing upon our export
trade. First the passing swillcart
is "an indescribable stench" and
a menacq to health, as are also, to an
aggravated degree, the hogpens where
this fermented or rotting slop is shovelled
out to the abused swine, amid
"sickening odors" against which longsuffering,
peace-loving neighbors hesitate
to make complaint. Again, its
use promotes disease?as hog-cholera
and possibly trichina;?and the average
housekeeper is not able to detect
by appearance the difference between
this meat and that fattened by decent
methods. Moreover, the swine maladies,
spread from herd to herd, down

cause tli6 innooent to suffer, and militate,
withal, against the reputation of
American pork products abroad, Our
contemporary finds in these suggestive
facts warrant for legislative restrictions
upon sale, if not upon production;
at least the objectionable prol:y:

bo that buyers averse to taking risks
I may avoid it, and raisers of grain-fed
pigs be relieved from the unfair competition.?Neio
To <iirow Plants from Cutting*.
The old way of rootihg cuttings in
a small glass bottle filled with water
is a good method when a hotbed cannot
be used; but the bottle should not
stand so close to the window as to
become hot, and thus scald the rootlets.
A little cotton wool within the
rim of the bottle will prevent evaporation.
In two or three weeks the
roots will be plentiful, and then the
cuttings may be transferred to thumb

v/i 9 a a. vuu ocaouu ouiiO) iatu tn o
beds. As each cutting is taken from
the bottle, dip the roots into a little
warm sand until each fiber is coated:
this will keep them apart and prevent
wilting. If pots are used, nearly fill
them with a rich sandy compost, and
press it to the sides, so as to leave
room in the center. Put the roots in
gently, and give the plant a little twist
to spread the roots, or separate them
with a hairpin. Then put in more
soil, and press it about the roots*
Tight pressing is one of the secrets of
success in raising plants from cuttings.
Water the young plants well, and
shade them at first from the sun.
Cuttings can be also started in pots
of sandy compost, with a glass tumbler
placed over them to confine the moisture.
and keep from the sun for two
or three days; then place the pots in
the warmest window exposed to the
southeast. "VVet sand is also good for
growing cuttings, and they will start
quicker than in compost. A shallow
pan is preferable; fill it up with sand
(not sea sand) sopping wet, then press
in the cuttings tightly, and keep them
wet. When new leaves show themselves,
in two or three days transplant
into pots filled with light sandy loam.
After shading a day or two, they may
have ample sunshine and sufficient
water to keep them moist. Cuttings

plant strike best. It is better to break
off a branch of a geranium or verbena
than to cut it (if it breaks readily).
Cuttings of roses, heliotrope, etc., will
grow better if taken off at the junction
of the old and new wood, and
should be cut off just below a joint or
bud, as the roots start from that point;
and if a bud is not left near or close
to the base, the cutting is liable to
decay in the soil.?Scientific American.
