Is it not a mistake to do so much
farming that you can not Ret up
there where the greatest profit and
most pleasure lie? While 15 bushels
of wheat an acre may not bring you
any prom, 30 will ; though there will
be no adequate reward in 100 bushels
of potatoes, 200 from au acre may
pay you well.
While manuring is essential, there
is virtue in every soil which tillage
will bring out. When the ground is
dry we may grind and stir it to an
almost unlimited extent, and every
bit of the labor pay ; and the fruits
of thorough work of this kind last
more than a single year, for we will
see it in successive crops. Let us
mend our ways and stop our growl
ing, for riches are at hand iu the
soil, the subsoil and in the air. The
earth is an Eden, despite the crop of
laggard mortals which covered it.
In farming "any old thing" will
not do. The best labor saving ma
chinery must be had, or there will
be no profit, in the midst of com
petitive prices. Improved men,
with improved skill, must handle
these men who have acquired the
very best knowledge. The secret to
day lies not in the good prices, but
in the cheapness of production.
It is the poor merchant and the

one, who is squeezed to death
There is always success for him who
does his level best, no matter what
the discouraging circumstances are.
He who takes every legitimate ad
vantage carries off the ribbons.
There would be r.o progress were it
iiot for the failures. An early sow
ing of clover or planting of potatoes
may freeze out, but we know it will
give the best result in the long run.
We must not be discouraged iu the
following of ways which have been
proved best because of a single fail
ure. A firm, rich piece of land on which
stock has been pastured and fed is
far better for potatoes than a dry,
light loam or sandy soil; but, of
course, this will not do away with
the necessity for good seed and good
For more than one reason is it a
wise thing for a fanner to have his
farm small enough to be within his
own management and direct control.
There is an indifference and a slov
enliness about the work of hired
hands which always keeps one un
easy. As to the fact that the wheat field
which has been rolled in the spring
lias tne advantage, mere is no ques
tion. Plants which have been
heaved up are pressed down, and
have a better and quicker chance to
throw out new roots and fasten them
to the soil.
Muddy barnyards are a nuisance,
and it is strange more farmers do
not find some way to fully mend
matters. Such a one is a damage to
the whole place and an eyesore to
the country around. Drain it off

The farmer who is known to have
nothing but good stock, of whatever
variety, will never have much
troublp in finding buyers or in get
ting good prices. He influences the
market, too, and people will be more
ready to buy mutton, pork and beef
if their tastes have been satisfied
with a good quality.
By converting our products into
beef, milk, wool, pork, etc., we get
the ultimate value which is con
tained in them. We become the
manufacturers ourselves, and pay
out no per cent, for having the worn
done by others. Moreover, we have
just that much less fertilizer to buy.
In diversified farming the begin
ning and the end of profit are in
keeping stock. There is the profit
on the crop above the cost of pro
duction, the profit in the utilization
of much rough and cheap food for
which there is no other profitable
market, the profit in the growth of
the animal, and the profit direct by
the enrichment jf the land from the
production of manure. No tarm can
do its best in the absence of live
A proper ration is one which is
cnean and will at the same time
meet the purpose in view. Almost
everything which grows can be used
as a food or fodder in some way ; but
there is an art iu feeding, and no
question about it. Wheat bran may
be profitable or it may not; corn will
make fat, but that may not be the
purpose of the feeder. Then it must
be remembered that hard, har
grains can always be improved by
crushing. No animal will do its
best on any one thing, for it will tire
of the ration and not eat so much,
neither will digestion be so good.
An unfinished mess should not be
placed before animals the second
timp, for it is not more appetizing
to them than a like thing would be
to the master.
Any food should be worth more
after it is fed than before. In feed
ing, two objects should be kept in
view at all times to make the most
out of our feed, and to make the most
out of ourstock. The method which
will best do this is the one to follow
It is a sacrifice of profit to do any
thing less than full feeding witl
young stock. The loss in grain or
growth is always out or proportion
to the saving in food material
When the support of life and the

bles, the right kind of food and
water in abundance, and the income

in the summer. Milk them early in
the morning and feed them, that
the interval may not be so long as
to make them hungry and restless.
All this pays well, indeed.
A little lime scattered about or
placed in a box in the dairy room
will absorb much of the surplus
moisture; but the first important
step is to see to the drainage and
have it as perfect as possible. Re

There is less loss in saving corn in
the silo than in curing it in the
Meld, and in the former shape it has
more feeding value than in the lat
ter. It is a healthy food, and has
no bad effect on butter whatever.
It is a relish for the cattle all the
winter through. The silo educates
the dairyman himself in the value
of fodder and the worth of food, and
in the study of ways to make the
most of it. More corn can be sown
the acre. The fertility of the farm
is increased because of the increase
in the number of stock kept.
Why keep cocks after the breed
ing season is over? It is a breech of
tht economy which is a necessity
with the poulterer. If one wishes
to pack eggs, those from hens with
a male will not be kept so well as
If you raise turkeys let them be of
the largest varieties, that there may
be the more profit. Every farmer
who has ample foragingroom should
have a large brood hatched out
about the 1st of May. While young
keep them from rains and dews,
give them exercise, feed them hard
boiled eggs and scalded corn meal,
spiced with peeper and onion tops.
After they are a month old they
can take care of themselves.
Most of the little chicks which die
are carried on because or exposure
to cold and damp. Let there be no
draughts about the coops, but ven
tilate from above. Then see that
they are free from lice, and you will
rear them with pleasure and profit
From close estimates last year the
American hen numbered 250 mil
lions and laid thirteen and a half
billion eggs, worth 165 thousand
dollars. The poultry meat sold
brought 125 millions more. The
bens themselves were worth at least
100 millions more. The meek little
hen is something terrific when it
comes to dollars; and yet the United
States imports quite a per cent, of
her eggs and poultry.
If you have a coop large enough,
properly located, built on dry
ground, free from air cracks, with a
good floor, you are properly foi titled
for a good crop of eggs next winter,
whatever your breed of fowls. Then
it is necessary to know all about egg
making rations, aud to have thrift

Coal ashes around gooseberry and

It can hardly be said that there is
any best time to prune. The growth

must always be considered.
