Now that the new crop season is at
hand, farmers intending to ship
their own grain to market cannot be
too careful as to quality. Buyers
are disposed to discriminate sharply
against a poorly cleaned and inferior
article, especially at this time of the
year. Hemember that quality counts
whether marketing new crop wheat
or any other farm produce.
Herman experiments seem to show
that potash salts have decided in
fluence in conserving the moisture
of the soil. This may be of great im
portance during the dry season.

Poultry Note for AugiMt.
August, the midsummer month, is
a very important period for the
young stock. Some are half-grown
and all early-hatched specimens are
beginning to mature.
Plenty of fresh air at night and
abundant shade during the day
mean strong, vigorous growth from
now until maturity. Pure, sweet
grain, and plenty of it. fresh, clean
water, and grit where it is accessible,
are very necessary.
Free range is absolutely indispen

A correspondent to the Country
Geutleman says: "The example
mentioneu oy your Maine corres
pondent, who refers to the use of a
bull harnessed in a buggy, may be
easily paralleled here iu North Caro
una, where it is quite eotmnou to
see a bull not only harnessed to a
wagon, but saddled and ridden to
mill with a bag of corn behind the
rider. Or the farmer may be seen
going to the village with produce for
sale in the same way. It is one of
the ways by which this necessary
animal may be kept out of mischief
and made to earn his living, and de
serves imitation everywhere. A
nice looking Jersey bull thus em
ployed certainlv is an instance of
the right animal in the right place.
ana should not do considered as
anything derogatory to the standing
of a farmer.
In uo other way do farm horses
suffer so much as from being inade
quately watered. They are com
polled to work steadily for five full
hours each half day in the broiling
sun with no water. The farmer is
very careful when he goes to the
field to see that his jug of driuking
water is not left behind, and he
drinks often if the day is hot, but it
never euters his head that his horse
is a sweating animal, and in propor
tion to its body has a smaller stom
ach than himself and needs as large
a supply.of water and needs to drink
as often. Not only is it humane to
provide water for the horse, but it
pays. The sweating process is a
cooling one. This is nature's wsy of
counteracting the heat, and when
water is given iu sufficient quantity
tosustaintheswe.it the horse can
with i tool -shoos ;
do more work with safety. It is but
little trouble to give a team a drink
two or throe times each half day,
anil any man who will try the ex
periment will never abandon it. lly
providing a barrel on a log, boat, or
even on a wagon, enough water can
be taken to the field to l ist two or
three days, and if the h'irrel is a
clean one the water will keep in
good condition aud with a pail th
horses may be given a drink a cou
ple of times each half day. No time
need he lost, for it will take no long
er to give them a "sip of water"
than to sit on plow handles while
they are resting. There is another
very great advantage in this occ i
sional watering. When so watered,
the team on coining to the stable
may he allowed to drink all thev
want without fear of bad results anil
the grain may be given so as to give
them plenty of time t eat it.
When not watered from morning
un'il noon it is not safe to give drink
until they have stood and cooled o!T,
and every one should know that it
is not the best way to feed a horse
before it has drank. The result is
that the driver has to put his team
in the stable to hay, "uul after din
ner give them a drink and then feed
g'ain. This is a good deal of trouble
aud it takes time, and it also re
duces tr.e time the horse has to et
his grain, so he learns to "gobble it
down," and it does not digest as
well or do him as much good. If
water is provided, and horses are
watered at !) and 11 o'clock in the
forenoon, they will drink but little
when coining to the stable, and may
at once be fed their grain and will
ive a full hour to eat and digest it.
and a horse that is fed grain three
times a day will ha better, feel bet
ter and work better not to have any
hay at noon, but simply have his
grain and be allowed the rest of the
time for digestion and assimilation.

low how, and said m his blandest
tones, "I beg your pardon, madam,"

friend, happening to be near, told

him. Next morning, turning the
