llolh Shir, of the Question,
The ensilage question continues to be dis
cussed At great length to agricultural Journals.
Enough has been written about it already, It
collected and published In book form, to make
a small library. It has tho merit of being a
now subject, and of sudcient importance to
deserve, attention. If all that Dr. Bailey
claims for It were true, It wouldrerolullonUe
our system of farming, at least In some of Its
branches. But Dr. Bailey's statements are
evidently of such an Interested character that
they should be received with some allowance.
To him, however, belongs the credit of being
the first In this country to bring the subject
conspicuously before the public, though per
haps he Is not, as claimed, the first here to
make a thorough trial of the system. Seve
ral others claim to hare thoroughly tested Its
merits at the time or prior to the building of
Dr. Bailey's alio.
Whether this new method of preserving
fodder In Its green state will ever be found so
profitable as to be generally adopted, Is still a
question. It Is evident that a great number
of silos will be built the coming season, and
the business will be better understood before
the close of another year. As a matter of in.
torest to all farmers, we give considerable
space this week to this subject. Among the
groat number of newspaper articles advocat
ing the use of ensilage, we have seen nothing
that seemed to come from an abler or better
informed source than tho following, from the
Country Gentleman, by Chas. K. Harrison of
Baltimore county, Maryland. Mr. Harrison's
operations appear to have been conducted on
a very large scale, and perhaps something
should be added to his estimates for tho great
er proportionate cost of storing ensilage in
PERSONAL EXPERIENCE Of A PIONEER EN
My attention was first called to ensilage in
1875 by the American Agriculturist, and by
letters in the American Farmer, published in
Baltimore. I determined to try it, and com
menced during 1877 to prepare, forlt. I pack,
ed my first silo in 1878, and have been pack
ing it every year since. My experience with
it, indeed, dates prior to that of some who
have published in book form such flourishing
statements. I have published in local papers
an account of my success, and many of my
friends and acquaintances have thereby been
induced to try it during the past one or two
I packed about 200 tons in 1878, 330 tons
in 1879, and 700 tons last summer, and pro
pose increasing the capacity of my silos the
present year to 1600 tons. The result of
my experience is, that,' provided you keep out
seepago and surface water, any matorial will
do to construct one. I have a silo formed of
rough slabs, one. or more inches of space be
ing between the boards in places, and answer
ing merely to keep the damp earth oil the
material and the bank from caving in. It has
a simple board bottom of the same material.
This silo has been in use three years ; it is
200 feet long, 10 feet 6 inches wide at the
top and 7 feet wide at the bottom, 8 feet deep,
and has never hod any roof except an earthen
one, mounded up like a pit for preserving
roots. a I have another silo, 135 feet long, 1G
feet wide and 12 feet deep, of masonry, with
a roof over it ; the sides are vertical, and
stone is used to compress it.
I partially filled this last season. Stone was
the cheapest and most convenient material I
had to use. The floor is of beaten clay. The
silo is entered at one end on a level with the
ground. This is a great convenience, and
tho wagon is run in each day to be filled. It
is difficult within the limits of a short paper
to answer all the questions that might be asked
regarding this subject j but, to any one will
ing to try it, I should say. build your silo of
any material you please ; if you have the good
fortune to be able, use a cheap material, and
not stone and masonry, but you must keep
out the water. I should advise a width not
greater than 20 feet or less than 1C, if possi
ble. One will be guided in depth by the lo
cation, bearing in mind that there is great
economy in handling by being able to reach
the pit through one end on a level with the
ground outside. The pressure Is great, so
that either masonry or boards should be bank
ed up with earth outside if any part is above
ground. There is no economy in making an
old-fashioned pit without roof, and covering
with earth, as the labor in removing, watch
ing and covering is considerable, and when
severo weather freezes this covering the ex
pense is increased.
The next operation is to raise the fodder.
The object to attain here is bulk, and an ear
on every stalk if possible. Manure your
ground well, and use some good alkaline fer
tilizer in the corn row if your ground is good ;
if not, it should be made so. Use between
one and two bushels of white corn to the acre,
in rows 30 or 30 inches apart. I have seen it
much closer, but do not think it desirable to
plant it closer, and in this locality you run a
risk in a dry season. I shall use a peck to
tho acre of some southern pea, probably
Whip-poor-will, in my com rows, drilled in
at the time of sowing the corn, to add to the
albuminoids in my ensilage. Cut your fodder
down when ears have formed and are in the
milk. The stalk and leaves are then full of
sap and very green. Cut when your corn is
sweetest Use, if possible, Blunt's Froliflo
White. I believe the Mammoth Ensilage is
only another namo for this variety. I have
had no Buccess with sweet garden corn in
this climate, and I should advise most strong
ly against it on the ground that you do not
get bulk enough. I was on the lookout for
some good, large, white field corn that is
sweet, and discovered in Loudoun County,
Va., some raised from seed purchased of Ma
jor Gittings of Annapolis, Md. It was very
large, prolific, and the sweetest field com I
have yet seen. In this respect It is superior
to Blunt's Froliflo. I have not civen it a trial.
however, and can only say it seems to be what
Out your fodder down no faster than you
can haul it: better have field hands idle than
commit the mistake of having it lie exposed
to the sun. Push ahead, welcoming cloudy
and misty days, and stop for no rain short of
what would drive your men under cover.
When it reaches the pit, pass it through the
best, strongest and most powerful cutting-box
you can purchase, capable of being driven
between 700 and 600 revolutions per minute.

The Other Side.
Another view Is given by two correspon
dents of the same Journal, which wo quote
la all that I have read in the papers regard
Jng enaiUge, both for and ain, I have not
seen anything like an experiment calculated
to settlo the question of its food value (taking
cost into consideration) compared with other
kinds or provender, in a talk wnloh I bad
quite recently with an enthusiastlo convert to
the new idea, I was bold enough to mako a
confession of some skepticism, and expressed
me Denei mat 11 me originators or me ensi
lage fever could buy com at the prices we can
get it for, they would abandon the silos they
have, and spend no moro time in digging sim
ilar holes In the ground. I can buy corn in
the field, Including the fodder, after It has
been cut and put up In stocks, at an average
(one year with another) of $1.80 per barrel
of ten bushels of cars. Putting the ensilage
corn at $2.40 per ton, and 75 pounds per day
as a full ration for a steer, bis daily feed
would represent a cost of nine cents. For
this sum I can furnish him with one-twentieth
of a barrel, or 30 big ears, of com, and all
the fodder said oorn grew upon, say an ave
rage of 30 big stalks of com fodder. I haven't
the least doubt that if those 30 big cornstalks
had been cut off at the ground before a grain
of com had formed upon' them, and been
chopped up into ensilage, they would weigh
at least 75 pounds. Now, do the advocates of
ensilage tell us that there is more value in 7G
pounds of green and immature cornstalks
chopped up fine, than in the samo amount of
cornstalks allowed to dry In the usual way,
and fortified by 30 big ears of corn 14 pounds
at least of pure, sound, dry, merchantable

I for one do not believe the new doctrine.
and for the present at least shall continue the
practice of giving my horse ten ears of good,
sound com, in preference to ten stalks of
green fodder, even though it Is chopped up
fine. o. 11. F.
No matter what the quantity of cnsllase
may be at a feeding, bear in mind that eight
in every ten pounds of pure- ensilage is water,
and but two pounds of it is nutritive food.
Cows must have an enormous stomach to take
in, digest, and void off in excrement and urine
such a quantity of food in cold weather. Still,
let that go for what it is worth. Compare the
above with sweet, well cured winter rye, oats,
orchard grass, red clover, millet or Hunga
rian, peas, aud well-cured cornstalks, (all cut
in blossom, mind you); all these, let it bo
premised, are well stored in the bam, fresh
and fragrant as they come from the bay or
mow, run through the cutting-machino, well
spread in a capacious box, sprinkled through
with meal of whatever kind may he used,
moistened with sufficient water, and piled up
for 24 hours, more or less, as may be neces
sary to thoroughly incorporate the mass. Is
not this latter forage quite equal to the ensil
age, without the burned labor, in summer
more expensive by 50 per cent, than in win

Buffalo, N. Y.
We give a portion of a reply to Dr. Bailey,
by Prof. J. W. Sanborn of the New Hamp
shire college, farm :
DUX VEBSUS GREEN FODDER.
Dr. Bailey furthermore makes the point
that it is of no use for me to compare the an
alysis of green food with that of dry, etc.
Very good. But tho point I made was that
the Germans have taken a given amount of
green food and fed it, and also they bavo tak
en the same amount of green food, and dried
it, and then fed it ; and that the animals re
port tbe dry food as eOlcacious as the green.
Does ho want to go behind these, animals in
their report ? It may be that theso beasts
have taken a scientific, view of the question.
If so, they of course will be readily brushed
away in his easy contempt for science.
We are constantly hearing of tho cost of
ensilage : and we bavo ensilage charged to
animals at cost, and dazzling stories are told
of cheap beef from ensilage at $2 per ton.
Are we to run an uneventiui round of exist
ence in raising ensilage at cost for beef and
butter, lugging and togging at a watery food
mat nos to be weigbted down by 103 pounds
per cubio foot, as by Prof. McBrido ? (Please
to figure out the cost, In and out, of this back,
sous fiocrino rnou cost.
The sophistry of big ensilage figures can
not be better seen than by like sophistry. I
published the figures of cost for a field of com
of sixteen acres, averaging 75 bushels of shell
ed corn and four tons of stover per acre, cost
ing $33.86. Call the com 30 cents per bush
el, then the stover cost $2.80 per ton.. Now
I con establish to the satisfaction of Dr. Bai
ley, or any one else, that I can keep an ani
mal of the weight of "Ilossmore" on 22 to 25
pounds of such stover, or on 18 pounds of
oat straw, costing no more per ton for straw
than the corn. fodder, with the same success
that he did "Ilossmore." Costof 23J pounds
com-f odder, 3J cents per day; of straw, 2.55
cents per day. Doesn't this beat ensilage ?
But, again, this acre would have wintered two
steers and made five pigs, weighing 218 pounds
eacn, live weignt. xnese xacts 1 Dase upon
farm experiments. Buy grain, as by the en
silage process, and the result would be doubled.
Now, gentlemen, let us all rush crazy into
corn-growing by tho good old method that
is, dry against green food, concentrated against
watery food. However, we will concede a
modest place for silos. Excepting for human

Mr. S. B. Pierce of Felchville, Vt., claims
to be the only person who has tried any other
means of pressure than loading the cover of
the silo with weights. He presses his ensi
lage by means of Iron rods passing through
holes drilled in heavy stones at the bottom of
the silo, and fastened with nuts on the under
side. The rods, having threads cut at the
upper ends, pass through timbers laying over
the covering boards, upon which the nuts are
turned down. The cost of four screws, 1
inch wire 20 feet long, with nuts and washers
complete, was twenty-five dollars.
Mr. Fierce is an enthusiastic believer in en
silage. He says :
We have stood still long enouch. If vou
don't dare to build an extensive silo, fix up a
corner iu the barn, uuder the shed, anywhere ;
piant a nine corn, cut it up by band, and nil
the box; lay some 'boards over it and pile
some stones on them, and watch the result. I
guarantee you will have a silo ueit year. If
you haven't time, let the boys do it; they will
be glad to, if you will let them and will show
them a little, if they can only have a calf or
two or a few sheep of their own to feed from
it next winter. It wont cost you much, and
will encourage the boys perhaps he the mak
ing of both them and their father, "Mighty
trees from little acorns grow," and stranger
things hare happened than for that little box
to be tho means of paying the mortgage
which has hung so long upon your spirits like
a leaden weight.
Nothing new has been brought to the no
tice of the people for the last twenty years
which has been half so thoroughly discussed
as has been tbe system of ensilago, aud it
must seem somewhat strange to tbe disinter
ested reader who has carefully followed the
discussion from the beginning, that not one
line has been written by any one who has
built, filled and fed from a silo, which can by
any stretch of tbe Imagination be construed
as in any way derogatory to the Bystem. The
few feeble arguments that have appeared in
print against it have been written by men Ig
norant of tbe subject they write about.
Cool, moist cellars have lately been recom
mended as best for keeping apples. Until re
cently it has been believed, without question,
that a dry atmosphere was most favorable to
their preservation, but facts are of more val
ue than theories ; It Is now claimed that the
soundest apples are found, late in the spring,
in cool, moist cellars.
The ready sale of working oxen at tbe high
prices that have been obtained this spring,
suggests the profit of keeping oxen rather
than horses for ordinary farm work where
the choice is between the two.

The city Sf Boston uses annually about 50,-
000,000 quarts of milk, for which it pays
about $3,000,000. The supply conies in
milk wagons from tho towns surrounding tho
city, and also from distant towns, some of
them out of tho stoto by railroad. While, it
is retailed in tho city at eight cents per quart,
the farmers get for it, delivered to the dealers
in cans, only about four cents.
In the spring of 1877, and also in the spring
of 1S78, somo of the farmers in this part of
the state had finished sowing oats and plant

In both these years considerable planting was
done in most of tho towns of this county in
the month of April.
