For tho very old or fceblo much cspo
surc to tba wcathor may not bo agrcc

Bcasoti. Thcro Is somcthing about
stiow and a slmrp ntmospliero that is

But, rcfurring to tliis tnuttcr of soci

ing as an adjunct, lct mo sttggcst tliat
it is not for young folks alouo. My
idea of sociability iu all ranks is, that
to sccnro tho bcst rcsults iu cultnre,
thero Blioulcl bo nothing like divisious
as to agcs. Childron's partics, young
pcoplo's partics, and old folks' socfablcs,
do not auswcr tho truo purposo of sucli
gathorings. Thcy promoto awkard
ncss and clannishncss, and somctimcs
coarsoncss. Tho imtnaturo young man
will somctimc makcafool ofhimsclf
in a compauy of about his own ago cx
clusively, and so will tho young lady of
the samc order. Thoir latncntablc at
tompts at "smartuoss" may occupy tho
attcntiom of tho compauy, to its dctri
mciit, and bo mistakcu for admiration,
whilo the prcsenco of parents and
guardians would liavo a sobcring
and rcstraining iuflucncc, not ncc
cssarily irksomc, but it would tcud to
raako young pcoplo weigh thcir words
with moro caro. Whilo it nccd not
rcstrain mirth or docoro.ua hilarity, it
would (ono dowii, nnd tono np at the
samo timo, the intcrcourso of all; and
this is cspecially necdcd in furrning
clrclcs. Tho childron, of coursc, aro
radimental lcarncrB; tiio youths and
maidons of sixtocu oud upward ncvcr
know quite as much as thcy think thoy
do; wliilc parents aro apt to think thcy
kuow too much to fcel much intcrest
iu what is purcly soclal on such occasi
ons. But Bouiethinga little out of the
rut of larming is tho truo dcsign of nicli
gathcrings. Tho farmcrs and his wilc

to try to bo agrccable, and a man or a
woman of any ago who euccccds at it at

But. in additiou to the intcllectual
and social opportuuities which wln
tcr brings by day and night, a great
dcal of profltablo larni work can
bo done by an ontorpriBlng family.
Stock fccding is bccomtng tnoro and
raore a great indnstry, nccding only
somo Yery thorough etudy of its prin
ciples to make its advant'agcs availablo
to the farmcr at a scason of compara
tive lcisnro. Tho srcat nccd of all
tarms tn the olu-settlcu nortlon of tho
countrv is manuro. Tho ordinary farro
stock docs not bogin to fiupply this
necd, particnlarly in conncction with
tho waste of pasturing and open out
door winter feedtng. The citics, great
as are thcir rcaonrces, do not supply it.
Oardenors, truckers and lrnit growers
uear ai nanu, aro rcauy 10 laKO all and
moro. Thoy havo loafned tho valuo of
higli farming, and hasitato at no ordina
ry prico for manure. Tho farmcr at a
distanco must look olsowhoro than to
cities. Stock-feeding is an availablo re-
80urco. to say that It rcquires stndy
and caro is only to complitnont it; did
it not requlreauch atlention, it would
not bo worth noticiog. Tho eludy re
quired is a knowledgo of tho principles
of feeding, and the qualitics of tho va
rious cattlo loods iu tho niarkct, or eucli
as aro ralsed on tho farm. Ono prin
ciplo is that tho lnost nrofltablo system
of feoding is that which bogins with
birth and kccps the nnimal growing
without ccssation until its liighcst do
vclopmeut is rcachod. Tho old nrac-
tlce is to tako any kind of old or gaunt
stock, no mattor what its pasttrcatment
may havo beon, and proparo it for tnar
ket. Fot thoir own family itsc, larmors
lbrmorly solectod somo Biincrannuated

always tnklng Bomothlng which it wus
deenied nocessary to got rid ot for pn
culiar reasons, but with no regard to
tho profltablo nuality of tho beef. To
get an ordinary farmer to kcop an uc-
coutit of llio corL of fccding any aniinal
onhis placo thli ty voars ago would
havo bcun ncxt to imnossiblo.
As feeding fhonld bcgin young, it
follows that if the animals cannot bo
ralsed on tho farm, thoy should bo pur
chascd when young, or from liords
wlioso owners havoahvays fed well and
maluiolnrd them in a crowiutr condi-
tion. This involvcs tho ruling out of
tho Bcrawny, half-starvcd stock socom
tnou on tlio inarkct in rural uclghbor-
hooils, and makcs it bctter for beef
cousumcra. In factit may bo said that
the rctortii bcgins on tho moat block.
for conaumcrs domand an articlo that
nccd not ncccssarily go into IiksIi as tho
last chanco of utility. Tho dcmand of
tho consumcr is passcd along tho lino
of iniddle-nicii until it reanhcs tho
stock fccder, and aitcr a fcw bad Bales
lt dawiiB upon him that tho onlv mar
ket for tough old cows and that class of
Ifian klno u at liomc, and thou uudcr
protcst. Tho conBuquouco is tliat wo
shall havo lcss of this class of stock in
tho country, as thcro is no prollt in
starvatiou of cattlo or land.
Tho wlntcr fccder, to carry on bls
work, will need a bcltcr barn than is
ordinarily socn, and lcss of tho old hid
coub barnyard. To gain rapldly in
flcsh, cattlo must bo comfortablc, and
thcro is not much comfort In a barn
yard, or in a Btablo full of cracks and
knot-holes through whi:b tho wind and
snow may drivc nt ovcry gale. Good,
llght, warm but casily vontilatcd barns,
aro nccdcd; and tho study of such
slructtircs, so that thcy can bo conveu-
icnt and chcap, can bo ono iletn of
winter work in caso a farmcr has not
yct obtaincd hls idcal. In fccding
stock, particularly if thero aro quite a
numbcr, success dcponds largely upon
convonlonco in gotting food to tho spot
wauted i'or distribution, and thcn iu
tho modo of distribution.
If cooking is to be practicod, how to
do it satcly and rapidly and in tho
cheapest availablo quantities, is o cnn
sidcration. Tho disposition of the
manuro is auothcr. Mauv fnrm
vor ccllars under tho stock, and if
propcriy ircateci wtiti such absorbents
as will kcop down rapid fermontation
and odors until tho manuro can bc
properly disposed of, thcro is no reoson
able doubt of the valuo of ccllars. If
thero aro nono, it involves a good deal
of immediato extra work, as tho man
uro must be disposed of specdily in
somo way. Tho old-time practice of
pitcbing it out of doors through a win
dow by hand until it is piled up several
feet deep against tho barn, with tho
rains and the watcr from tho roof beat
ing down upon it, is unlidy and waslo
ful, and unworthy of any good farmer.
Tho cellar is tho bCBt pla'ce for it until
spriog opens. Every barn must have
a roof, and a barn collar needs no extra
roof. Its extra necds are tho oxcava
tion and tho wall, and in tho caso of a
sido hill barn, which many farmers can
have, very littlo cxcavation is needed.
In most of tho Norlhern Statcs stones
aro plcnty and cost littlo cxcnpt tho
haulintr, and if old etono fences are
pulled down and msdo into barn baso
ment walls, or stono barns soveral feet
thick, or barus with double walls to
avoid suddcn changes of temporature,
so much the bettcr,
Tho insldo fenco system isanuiaancet
and a most serious drawbpck to suc
cessful farming. They wero built to
snbeervo a system which tho advanced
farmcr is learning to condemn that of
pasturago. I'asturngo is well onough
on tho wcttern plains with herdsmen in
tho saddlo to watch tho flock, but it is
doomed in tho oldcr pettled rcgions
where land is in dcmand, and wliero
labor must bo moro and moro concen

barns with all tho room necessary for
liousing stock all tho year, must Jie
