Overstocking is its bad its under
stocking. An animal over fed at one meal
will not eat as well as before for two
or three meals, and will feel the
effect, of course. The most econo
mical feeding is that which gives
the animal just that quantify it will
eat tip clean ol a good ration.
Feeding should be done at all
times with two objects in view one
to make the most out of the feed, and
the other to make the most out of
the stock. The plan which will bet
ter procure this is one to follow.
Any food should be worth more
after it is fed than before.
With all young stock anything
less than full feeding is a sacrifice
of net profit. The loss in gain or
growth is always out of proportion
to the saving iu food. The support
of animal life and supply for daily
waste must come first, and nothing
is left for gain. In fact, when under
fed they become restless, and the
waste is greater.
Many mixtures of cotton seed oil,
coal oil, etc., have been tried as a
remedy for the pestiferous Hies
which harass our cattle. Perhaps
nothing has proved more successful
than fish oil, to which is added a
little carbolic acid. It is best ap
plied with a broad, flat paint brush.
It is especially objectionable to flies,
and probaby is a chief constituent
of many of the patent remedies.
As a rule our fruit trees are utter
ly neglected and allowed to take
care of themselves from the day
they are once established. This is
why the many find no money in the
Jlecause apples and pears are
hardy and do comparatively well on
almost any soil, and in very adverse
conditions, it does not follow that it
would not pay to give them better
We cannot give the larger fruits
high culture, but they need fer
tilizers as much as any other; we
can not plow about them because of
the roots, but with mulches we can
keep the surface soil moist.
Tiiere need be no further demon
stration that in the growing of
strawberries and other small fruits
high culture makes all the difference
in the world with the quality and
the size of the fruit.
Farmers would make much more
of their gardens if they would make
a practice of preserving seed in
abundance for their own use. Gar
dens will pay for all the "tinkerin'
'round" they get: and the more of it
I they get the better will they pay.
i litrrks should be cultivated often ;
it warms the soil in spring. Even
light rains can then penetrate the
soil, and the moisture will be re
tained for use iu summer time.
Many an acre produces it3 $100 or
more in grapes, and yet many far
mers do not grow them for family
use, preferring to let the odd corners
und nooks grow up iu weeds and
Top dress with munure alternate
rows of cherry trees. On those thus
treated we will find the year's
growth of the shoots 12 to 18 inches
in length, while on those not ton
dressed the growth will not be half
so much. Moreover, the superior
bearing of the top dressed trees will
continue for at least two years.
When a tree is cut down the pitch
is observed to b considerably south
of the center. There is a regularity
in the distance between the con
centric rings, they being close for a
dry vear and far apart f r long and
protracted rainy seasons. Cold
weather splits the bark on the south
side, the north appearing more
spongy and porous.
Ari Iriiltural Note.
Tt is a fact, not generally known,
that wool grown in leitnessee is
superior to that of any other state
It is as near perfection as can be at
tained. In the torrid zone the wool
degenerates into u specie of hair,
and in the North it becomes coarse
near the ends. While we lead in
quality, it cannot be said we are first
iu quantity. Sheep raising is a
profitable business and it is safe to
say that if laws are ever enacted
which will better protect Hocks
from the ravages of worthless curs
Tennessee may then lead in point of
Cheap lands are a temptation to
own large farms too large for the
good of the owner. In most cases
they would yield double' the net
profit if the labor and expense laid
out upon the whole were judiciously
put upon the half. This is a hard
lesson to learn.
Leaving a good farm with a big
family and moving to town is an un
dertaking that should be well con
sidered again and again, and the
conclusion to remain on the farm
should be held with an Inflexible
determination. The farm is the
only place where success is assured
and happiness permanent.
It is practice of some farmers we
know to let few burdock plants grow
so as to finish a green bite for horses
during the early summer. The
horses are almost crazy at this sea
son to eat something green, and the
slightly bitter taste of the burdock
leaves does not prevent them from
eating them greedily. This will not
interfere with eating dry feed as
irreeii grass would do. In fact, some
horsemen regard the burdock leaves
as a valuable tonic, and declare that
horses eat more heartily and do more
work after they have been fed thus.
Poultry will be unprofitable if not
given a good start, like all things
else on the farm. It only pays to
keen them well, attending to their
needs as carefully as you do those of
the horses and the cows.
Often he censures his own man
agement who complains that his
chickens die from gapes. They
ghould not be allowed to follow their
own uncleanly tendencies. '1 hey be
foul their own water, and drink end
less numbers of disease germs.
The cheapest materials to make
hens lay is litter scattered over the
coop floor. This advice is becoming
trite, but it is worth chewing over
and over again. No food will pro
mote egg production if the hens are
kept in idleness and given no oppor
tunity to exercise and enjoy them

Nowadays when women are trying to
do everything it is not strange that
many things are over-done. It is not
strange that there are all kinds of phy
sical and mental disturbances. If the
women who is a doctor, or a lawyer, or
a Journlist, or in business would not try
to be a society woman too it might be
different; but the woman who knows
when she has done a day's work has
yet to be born. I'sually a woman's way
is to keep doing until she drops. Work
ing in this way has manifold evils. The
most common trouble resulting from
overexertion, either mentally or phy
sically, is constipation of the bowels,
with all its attendant horrors. Dr.

effectual remedy iu the market. They

In order to ascertain the average
number of bushels per acre of wheat

all thresbermeu are requested to

could not bi better advertised by
any other means. When the season
is over, send your figures to the
