LIME N AGRiouLTuRE.-All writers
on agtioulturAl subjeot# s.em to agroe
that the use of lime on clayey sofl Is
of great benefit, crops thus treated
showing the advantage of its mixture
with the soil. A corresnondeitio6thW
Farmer's tevieto writes from France
that the,, 3uropean . farmiers Coinqide
with our.agrioulturists in thfi respect,
and concludes as follows: The ex
tending use of ilme is excellent for
clay Boils. Argil augments in volume
when moist- diminishes when dry.
Carbonate of lime possesses iolther-of
these properties; applied then to cold
clay soils it enables the air and heat
to penetrate more readily, thus mak
ing the land friable. On light soils
the action of lime is weak,and on those
very light the use of lime is misplaced.
But as the action of lime rapidly trans
forms the nutritive c ipital of the
land, its success cannot be permanent
unleastrationally siipplemented by d'
root fertilizers, as farm yard manure,
etc. Ijence, the adage, Lime enrIchos
the father, but ruins the children. If
the soil have excess of acids, lime
"sweetens" by neutralizing them; all
cultivated soils are slightly acid, 8uch
being necessary for vegetation. Too
much, however, acts directly on plants,
and Indirectly by the formation o1
soluble and noxious salts of iron.
GATTINo RID OF RATs.-Many farms
are so infested with rats as to cause
serious loss to their occupants, and
various remedies are resorted to for
their destruction. None will prove so
effectual, however, as to make a simul
taneous attack upon them 'all along
the line,' by setting steel traps, dead
falls, triphead barrels, delusion traps,
together with a poison box, or box in
which you have continued to feed
them on clicese, buttered bread, &c.,
until they will almost come for call
ing, when saturate the bait with dead
ly poison, and they and their neigh
bors will cone focking in to enjoy the
repast, which, as soon as partaken of
and resolutions of thanks passed for
the kindness, will cause them to re
tire handsomely to rest forever. This
and keeping a throughbred rat terrier
or two trained for the purpose, will
soon make the place too hot for them.
But to render their extermination the
more complete, concert of action must
be had by all interested. Every farm
er shoul take ihis own premises in
hand, and then, after so arranging
his outbuildings as to shut the destruc
tive aimals out, Ie can make use of
the above means with every prospect
