Agricultural and Liye
Manure under cover is dry and
easily handled at any season.
Those who have hauled out wet
manure from a wet barnyard will
appreciate this fact.
If cultivated soil dries off and re
mains crusted after rains, enormous
is the amount of water which will
evaporate in a hot, windy clay ; it is
claimed that the amount will reach
100.000 pounds an acre. Stir it.
The moro we can cover the ground
with a mulch the nearer we come to
putting it into the condition Nature
does for growing her heavy crops of
forest timber or prairie grass.
Science and skill employed in
agriculture have served more to
draw fertility from the soil by
thorough tillage and persistent
cropping than they have to improve
Weeds often get up before the
onions, because onion seed is slow
to germinate. Soak the seed in
water which is luke warm for 12
hours before planting, and it will do
much to help the crop get the start
of the weeds and the grasses.
Many good, thrifty weeds will pro
duce 50,01)0 seeds. One cut with the
hoe will destroy the parent weed;
bow many cuts will it take to thor
oughly eradicate its progeny?
Success upon the farm depends
not so much upon the capital which
is expended as upon the labor and
skill with which it is used. In no
oilier business is the man with but
u little money at a less disadvant
age. It is not an impossible thing to
make good land pay for itself every
year. This sounds extravagant to
Diaiiv, but the fact litis been demon
strated niaiiv times. The larger the

It is olteu hard worn to get a do
er seeding on the dry, elevated
knolls in grain fields. Lack of
moisture is usually the cause. Hut
the evil may be remedied by draw
ing a few loads of stable manure
and spreading over these knolls.
The manure nut only protects the
young clover plants but it also
holds the moisture in the soil by
cheeking evaporation. A few times
seeding the knolls thus will make
them as rich as any part of tho field.
It is usually the lack of clover seed

To establish a (lock from common
ewes, secure the help of a pure-hred
ram of any of the mutton breeds
that have qualities suitable for your
condition.), in a ram for this pur
pose mutton-form is demanded. He
should he very heavy-headed, thick-
necked, broad-chested, but nowhere
coarse. Over the shoulder should
lie lull and broad. The back should
be straight and the loin wide and
thick. The ribs should spring out
strongly from the center of the body.
Such a sheep is thriftier than one
that is Jlatsided. It is very desir
able in a mutton ram to be deep and
broad between the hind legs or
twist, so as to furnish a plump leg of
mutton. The legs should be short,
the bone clean, and the hair upon
them fine. A ram, to get good
lambs, must have a strong constitu
tion. The evidences of this, besides
the points of form before mentioned,
are activity, a pink tinted skin, and
a sound, lustrous lleece covering the
belly as ihickly as the back. The
fleece should be dense and even and
made of libers that have a good
length, fineness and strength Itural

With good food. freh, pure water,

One reason why liens lay more
eggs in summer than in winter is
because they are dependent upon
themselves. They pick a little here
and there in delightful variety, and
have no chance to glut themselves.

much in poultry, give them eoual

know whether fowls pay or not.
A teacupful of sulphur in a quart
of soft food, given the liens on dry

where disease appears, and it is
excellent when burned in the poultry
house, as the fumes of burning sul

but also the germs of disease. Do
not add it to the food during damp
weather. As it is cheap, a full sup

When preparing bread crumbs for
poultry the bread employed should

bread over the bottom, holding the
