PROFIT OF MANtRES. Ifow many farmers continue to work their farms without profit, for the want of h sufficient amount of fertilizers, and manv, too, whose income from other sources than their farms, enables them every year to loan something on mortage. Xiue-teuths of their time and energies are sjietit in tilling the poor hungry farm, to prevent its running them in debt, and still they are unwilling to invest a single | dollar in the purchase of manure, to be re funded with quadruple interest in a single season. What would be said of a merchant who should loan so much of his capital on bond and mortgage, that he had not sntlicient means to keep the necessary stock of goods to supply his customers? And why should the fanner loan his money to others at siv.or eight per cent, per annum, when lie could cam a profit, in addition to the interest, by using it himself? When a farmer's income is truly in excess of the wants of his farm, then he is consulting his best interest by investing his money where it may be used by others for bis benefit; but until bis own business is properly eared for, he is wrong to part with the means necessary to its success. So tong as further additions of manure will increase the product beyond cost, the fanner should continue to increase the quantity used : and if lie cannot do so by any other means, lie should reduce the quantity of land tilled. The amount of manure which is used with profit, in some cases, would greatly astonish many farmers who are ac customed to keep their crops on a low diet and reap harvests in proportion. Hear What IVter Henderson, one of the most successful, money making gardeners in the United States, says in his book en titled “ Gardening for Profit :” “It is a grave blunder to attempt to grow vegetable crops without the use oi manures of the various kinds. I never yet saw soils of any kind that had borne a j crop of vegetables that wonld produce as, good a crop the next season without the | use of manure, no matter how rich the soil may be thought to be. An illustration ot this came under my observation last season. One of my neighbors, a market gardener of twenty years’ experience, and whose grounds have always been a per fect model of productiveness, had it in prospect to run a sixty foot street through his grounds : thinking his land sufficient ly rich to carry through a crop of cab bages without manure, he thought it use less to waste money by using guano on that portion on which the street was to be, but on each side sowed guano at the rate ot twelve hundred pounds per acre, and planted the whole with early cab bages. The effect was the most marked 1 ever saw ; that portion on which the guano had been used sold off readily at twelve dollars per hundred, or $1400 per acre, both price and crop being more than an average ; but the portion from which the guano had been withheld hardly averaged three dollars per hundred. The street occupied lully an acre of ground, so that my Iriend actually lost over $t000 in crop, by withholding $00 for manure. Another neighbor with a lease only one j year to run, also unwisely concluded that1 it would be foolish to waste manure on bis last crop, and so planted and flowed all without ; the result was, as his ex-: perience should have taught him, a crop I of interior quality in every article grown, I and loss on his eight acres of probably : $2000 for that season.” CUSHNOC HOUSE.
