The American Farmer lor March is
received with a great variety of articles
of the most practical value. No branch
?f culture but has full space accorded it.
Ticld Crops. Orchard Products, Small
fruits, the Dairy and Divo Stock suited
for it, the Poultry Yard, the Vegetable
Garde?, Ike Lawn, the Flower Garden
mid the Green Hotiec each bare a depart
ment wett filled and by the ablest bunds.
There fe lbesidcs, much miscellaneous
matter in which every incmocr of the
family circle will find something inter
esting and instructive.
The National Platform of the Granges
is also given in this number.
We risk nothing in recommending the
Fnimer to our farmer friends as a reliable
?n?J advanced paper devoted to their in
terests. Wc believe not one of them but
would be benefitted by its companionship
for a year.

Our opinion has been asked about the
best manures and fertilizers. Wc have
had a personal experience of but one
year in the use of cotton"secl meal, and
as a single article, for all purposes, wc
give no other a preference among com
mercial manure or fertilizer*. We know
that cotton seed has shown its effects as a
manure for some ten years, and we be
lieve the same quantity of cotton seed
meal will bring equal results. We have
been urging this for the past three years
?this the fourth. Although wc bad
cautioned others, and perhaps all wo had
talked or writtcu to, yet wc were caught.
Last season we had land prepared (ra
ther late before wo could be ready), und
directed our white employes not to drop
cotton'sccd meal on or near enough to
potatoes to heat, yet from that and othei
causes there was a failure. A friend who
procured a parcel though us was cautioned
and he lost his first planting, but a second
crop* ou same land,.made.
Our use of such articles was to drill in
manure by a machine sonic five to ten
days before planting anything. Then
the planting caused a mixing of earth
and manure, besides a week lying in the
earth and covered had given time for
some fermentation at least. Our potato
failure gave as three tons by weight of
excellent crab-grass bay, and perhaps the
acre (about) paid us well; at least it was
ft lesson that did not cost much money,
for the seed, manure and labor did not
cost what the hay sold for. Wc believe
that the meal (UK) pounds per acre as
nearly 03 we could tell by weight and
calculation) has paid for itself, and as
much more, besides there is ft largo resi
due in the earth for the ensuing crop..
Wc urge upon every grange in our
country to test at lesist one acre, say 200
pounds per acre. It would bo better to
test accurately 100, 200, 300 pounds per
acre, and be able to sny the yield of cash
and if th" crop is Knifitcd, say 81 50 per
ncrc for 100 pounds, double for 200
pounds, and so on. Cotton-s.cd meal
ought not to leave our country; our South
needs it all for stock and land. Wo
think no man con afford to sell cotton
need and buy fertilizers, especially when
the former sells ftt $9 per ton and the
latter nt.$40 to $100. Again, seed, 33
pounds to the bushel, G6 bushels to the
ion, fivo tons at $10, is $50. We sny
keep seed dry, crush them and use as the
cotton-seed meal. Twenty bushels crush
ed wilj bo about as 200 pounds meal,
2,000 pounds seed given 700 pounds or
near of meal. Try it, and let us husband
our own resources.? [Southern Farmer.
Plantino Stha wijkkk ies.?Mr. I.
Shells-well, in the Cottage < iardener, hui
tried the following method with great
success: I did n jt cut any runners off the
old beds, but allowed them to ran into a
mass. In the autumn [lined strips about
nine inches wide nnd two feet apart
through its length, and cut them in
b pun en of nine inches. These I took up
with a spado at three inches deep. In
!QP??-1 1,1 1 I?
tho bed prepared for them I hod trenches
dug two feet apart, and placed tho
squares of s?rn wherry roots iu them, at a
distance of eighteen inches from each
othe. Tho roots "were not injured in the
least, and. the crop was excellent. I had
tho trenches that were made in the old
bed fdlcd with ono part of well-rotted
manure and two parts-of stiff loam, and
the bed was soon covered with plants.
Thus, by degrees, you can renew the old
bed as well as from new ones. Certainly
with the old planting single roots, wo ob
tained finer specimens of fruit, but, unless
fruit for show is required, I advise every
one to try the above plan for quantity,
and they will not be disappointed.
Tallow as a Cure for Gapes.?One
day I noticed a flock of eleven puro brod
Crevcceeur chickens very bad with what
is called "gapes." I remarked to the mnn I
who had them in charge that he would
not have many chickens out of that lot.
"Oh, never mind," said he, "I have got a
cure for them from a neighboring woman
which is a common half-penny tallow
candle melted and mixed into about a
quart of oat-meal stirabout." The reme
dy was resorted to and tho Crcveeeurs
have every one recovered und grown iu
to finely developed chickens. I have
since tried t\m cure with invariable suc
cess.?[?/ov. London Field.
