WASTE OX Tilm FARM.-The greatest
waste op the farm is In the not pisig
of our brains; the greatst, beoause -a.t
the bottom of all the other wastes. A
little thinking often saves much labor.
After accomplishing almost any piece
of work, the most of us can look back,
and see how we could have improved
on It, (f we had but thought. As We re
view our crops of this year, we see how
they could have been easily increased,
had we only thought. The ditch we
d ug through our medow was not done
in the most economieai way. We dug
too deeply at first, and did not allow for
I he setting of the. land'. Hence a waste
of labor. We omitted buying an im
plenent that would have saved nearly
Its cost in this one year's use, until we
bad spent much in trying to accomp
lish our work without it. Here was
as6ther waste. We carry a water pipe
too near the surface, to save the ex
pense of digging a trench of a safe
depth, and the winter's frost necessi
tates a replacement of the pipe, and an
additional digging. Certainly, a waste
ijere. We allowed the weeds to grow
qn one.piece of land, not thinking to
what proportions they would grow by
theitime the ci ops wore too far advanced
t6 admit the hoe. A waste here, which
might have been obviated. And so on
wastes, little and big everywhere, all
arisingfrom our uot thinking suftici
ently-waste, because not necessary
and easily~obviated. We omit the or
dinary wastes irom neglect, from lazi
* iess, from want of appreciation of
dleanliness and thoroughness, -the
waates from our stock, fram our man
ure heap, from our household. Verily,
a little thought will save the farmer
much, and the saving, through this
means, even on a sman farm, will re
present the Interest on a considerable
capital. The wastes arising fron ig
norance can very readily be diminished
and are in large part inexousable; those
i.rising from caitleseness, are not de
serving of sympathy. The farmer, as
well as the business man, must, use
business principles, to steure the larg
eut success, and the one should be
as careful of the out-goes as the
CARROTS Yon AxmAns.-The carrot
is the most esteemned of all roots for
its feeding qualities. When anjidszed
it gives but little more solid matter
than any other root, eighty-five per
cent, being water; but Its influence in
the stomach on the other articles of
food is most favorable, contributing to
the mest perfect digestion and assimti
latoion. 'his reAuit, lobig known to
practical men, is explained by chemrists
as resulting fron the presence of a
substance called pectine, which oi)e
rates to coagulate or gelatine vegetab.e
solutions, and lavurs this digestiona in
all cattle. Horses are espe, ially ben
fited by the use of carrots, and they
should be fed friquentiy with their
other lood. Most all suetiopls of the
western country produce, when thou
roughly cultivated, beauILul cropls 01
carrots, an'. they can be raised at at
trivial expense. The land upon wh ich
carrots are to be cultivatect should be
mellow, and be plowed deeper than
How To FEED Holtsxs.-The trouble
with 'Most persons who keep horses, no
matter whether for farm work or for
driving purposes, is they feed too much
hay; and to this caln be attributed-the
general sluggishness olten manifested
by the horse until they have been
working a couple of hours, while their
wind Is also much impaired. Night is
the only time when hay shoutld be led,
especially to animials used for quick
work; even the slow plow teaum should
have but little hay at the niorning and
noon feeds, but give them a geiierous
supply at rho eveining meal. By doing
this your horses wvill keep Zn better
spirits and condition, and~ free fronm
any tendency to "'pot belly," which
horsemen so miuchm dislike to see.
FATTEarNO stock will thrive most
when fed only such quantity as will
be eaten readily with good appetite:
any excess of feed laying before them
will destroy time relish, make the ani
mals dainty, and lessen the quantity
they will consume. A variety Is de.
sirable; one feed daily should be sonme
esenlent, IIB iotatoes, turnips, or beets,
not so much for the food element they
contain as to give tone to the appletite
and digestion. Feed and water should
be givenm at regular timies, and by one
feeder, whlo will, if a proper hiand,
soon learn what each animal requires
and will feed no more or less.

exactly alike, and both of the same
temperature, not one or the five senses
could tell the man which is lead and
which is wood. He could tell this only
by lifting them, and tis sense of

to be recognized as the sixth sense.
