1 . Fatten Hogs Early.
We hare used this caption, or it equiralent
on former occasions. It has been brought to
mind by reading an article from a correspondent
of the Ohio Farmer. He first "hogged down"
(la western parlance) forty acres of com, be
tween the 10th of September and the 23 of Oc
tober. By the hogs being weighed when they
were turned in and when tbey were turned eut,
It was found that they paid forty cents a bushel
for the com, estimating the pork at four cents a
pound and eorn at forty bushels to the acret
His next course was to take one hundred hogs,
ranging 200 ponnl each, wbieh were placed
fa nin covered pens, and fed all they could eat
f. eorn and cobs ground together, steamed, and
given In allowances fire times a day. In a week
they were again weighed, when, reckoning 70
pounds of com and cob as equal to a bushel of
eornr.and the pork as abore, the hogs paid 80
eents a bushel for the com. The weather was
warsTfoT the ssason.
The same experiment was tried again the first
week J,.NoTepber, the eorn brenght only 40
centsiand'th'e feurth week but 20 cents, the
weather continuing to grow colder. Another
lot of "bog was" was fed through December,
which only gare 26 cents a bushel for the com.
A part of the time the temperature was at zero,
nd tben the bogs only gained -enough to pay
jtoe cents a bushel for the com, and afterward,
whan' the -mercury wanl.down to tea degree be
low sero, the hogs only htld their men.
'The inference from these trials is, that in gen
eral it is not profitable to feed com to hogs af
ter tho middle of November. The difference
In gain is certainly surprising, and whether cans
ad altogether by tho difference In temperature
or not, no person of observation can doubt that
bogs gain. much mere in proportion to the food
eensumd,in mild than in cold weather. It
teems that the hogs gained much less by helping
themselres to eorn than when the com was
ground and cooked, and fed to the animals in
pens under, equal advantages of weather. 8o

.r Decay of American Orchards.
Dr. John A. Warder, the eminent Ohio To
Biologist, writing in a late number of the Cla
elnnatus, open the decadence of orcbardsinthis
country, gives the prominent causes of the fail
ure in the following summary:
"In this essay I have passed in rapid review
with some occasional simplifications, the chief
eacses of the prematura decay of the apple or
chards, which may be attributed to a want ef
proper selection and preparation of the soil; to
neglect of cultivation; to exhaustion of the soil;
to. want of manures iudiciously applied nnder
guidance of analyass that ladieate the epecial
manure or plant food required; to excessive
fruitage, and early maturity of the trees; to old
age; to the effects of grafting, and use of bad
stocks; to onr breeding trees for fruit, rather
than for hardiness, rigor, and wood growth; to
riekly torts being propagated; to eold and sud
den alternations; to excessive humidity; to dis
ease, in the trees and fruit; to ravages of insects
of different kinds upon the trees and fruit; and
lastly to bad and injudicious pruning. With all
bate evils, to which orchard are eo generally
objected, it is not surprising that we should of
tea find them In a state of premature decay, nor
that we ehould hear complaint of their being
BO longer profitable; bat who woald. expect a
arop of com or wheat to be remunerative under
similar ctrcustances, or when subjected to such
bitter neglectt No eensible farmer surely. Of
thirteen causes of decay, at least nine are due to
the shiftless management of orchardista."

A Case of Supposition.
A Texan, who was returning home after the
battle of Buena Vista, having got separated
from his companions, and his horse stolen by the
Indians, was obliged to take it a-foot. Walk
ing leisurely along one Sunday morning, with
his rifle on his shoulder, looking out for game
to make his breakfast on, net knowing what day
of the week it was, be suddenly came to a stream
on the confines of Texas, not knowing that be
had reached the border of his own native Til
lage settlement.
Perceiving that the stream abounded in fish,
he took a hook and line from his pocket, aad
procuring some bait, he sat down patiently on
the bank, wrapped in a brown study, thinking
of his farm at home, when a preacher, who was
on his circuit, rode suddenly up, and began to
aocost him thns:
" Hello, etrangeri what in the world are you
'Flshin' for my breakfast," replied the im
perturablo Texan, without deigning to look
around at his interrogator.
"Do you not know, sir, that yon are violating
the Sabbath'?" asked the preacher.
" No," said the Texan, turning around and
looking at the preacher. " I must bo near the
white settlements, thenl"
"Yes, you are," replied the preacher, "and
violating tho Lord's day, for which you will
have to answer hereafter, on the great day of
judgment. Where do you think you would go

Oue of the Prayer.
They had an Indian excitement at Forest
City, Minnesota, not long since, very much af
ter the stylo of that one which was made mem
orable in verse as " the frogs of Windham."
The people scattered, while the Deputy Sheriff
was at an out-post, to guard the property; and
during the long night watches, his heart failed
him. Falling upon bis knees for the first time
in his life, he framed the following prayer to
" O, Lord, most of our folks hare gone to
Fair Haven, and carried (heir guns with them;
I pray tbee, don't let the Indians come in on
this road, while I am here' do let this cup
pass from us' but if they must scalp the whites,
they'll find most of them, as I said before, at
Fair Haven; and they had better go by way of
Kingston, as it is a much shorter road amen.1
On Thursday evening last, a couple of young
folks called on Esquire F., and after considera
ble hesitation, requested to bo nnited in the
"holy bans of matrimony," which request the
Esquire at once proceeded to comply with.
The bride, from the lateness of the hour, and
the peculiar nature of the call, thought some
explanation necessary, and so very innocently
" We eame from Columbia County to attend
the Fair, but finding the taverns all full, and no
place for Aleck to sleep, we concluded to get

"Yes," replied the minister, "but what I
mean is, that yon are in a bad state."
"By me sowl," returned the Irishman, " and

Wine from Unrip Crape.
- A the stems and husks of grapes give no bad
flavor to the frnit, it may be used in any stage
of ripening, or different degrees my be mixed
together. The fruit is in the best state when
joat beginning to ripen. For every gallon take
five pound of fruit; hare a tub which .will bom
IS or 20 gallons; braise the grape into this so
thoroughly that if possible every berry should
be mashed; wben the whole are in stalk and
all, add 4 gallon of cold spring water; mix all
well with the band till the juice and, pulp are
aenarated from the more solid matter; cover
the tub and let it stand 24 hours; strain it
through a coarse bag, and squeete the fruit
quite dry; poura gallon of "water over the iolid
mass, to get any soluble matter which may re'
main. Put into a tub or cooler 30 pounds of
loaf sugar; pour the luid upon it, first measur
ing it; make up with water to the total bulk
of 10' gallons; mix this until the sugar is dis
solved. This is called the mutt, and is equiva
lent to the juice of the grape. Cover up the
vessel with aboard, over which throwablanket,
and let il stand in a moderate temperature for
24 hours or more, according as it may appear to
ferment. Put it into the cask, which should be
full to the bung-hole, and a little inclined to one
side to let the scum work off; yon should have
half a gallon of mutt for this purpose. There
should be a bole near the bungwhich should be
stopped with a wooden peg, and when the bung
is closed up, the peg should in a day or two be
loosened, that the fixed air may have vent; this
should be repeated till tho excessive expansion
has ceased, when the peg may bo driven tight
The best way to keep the bung air-tight is to
paste a double piece of brown paper over it
Let the wine remain in a cool cellar (ill acloar,
warm day in January, then rack it off, and let it
stand to tho end of March before bottling. It
will keep for many years. If it is a brisk or
champagne wine it will be very good the follow
ing summer. When racked and clarified, the
isinglass should be dissolved in a little of the
wine, and well mixed in the barrel.
The Way to Flavor Meat.
The editor of the Maine Farmer observes that
a little experience in fattening er stall feeding
animals, will demonstrate that almost any par
ticular flavor may be given lo the meat, by feed'
Ing it with different kinds of substances. If
you fatten beef on pumpkins, you give the flesh
a sweet and juicy character, and the tallow will
have a yellow tinge. If fed noon apples, it will
have a different flavor, and the tallow be light
colored and melt easier. Indian com gives the
'tallow more solidity and a white color. If you
feed milch cows apon turnips, you can soon taste
them in the milk, and onions also will give the
milk their peculiar taste. Sea fowl, that live
upon fish, also have a peculiar fishy taste. Par
tridges are sometimes rendered poisonous by
eating poison berries. There is a variety of
duck killed in the waters of the Chesapeake Bay
and vicinity, called "Canvasback duck," which
are very famous for the peculiar flavor of their
flesh, which is caused by the kind of food which
they get in these waters. This food is supposed
to be the wild celery. A Yankee, in a recent
Buffalo paper, recommends the manufacture of
"Canvasback Ducks" out of the common dome
tic duck, by feeding them with garden celery
while fattening. There is no sort of doubt that
if this species of food be given to them for some
weeks before they are killed they will have the
flavor of it in their flesh, and perhaps be equal
to or better than the famous canvaebacks above
mentioned. It Sean experiment very easily tried.

Ripe Grape Wine.
Grape wine is tho finest of all home made
wines. In a plentiful year, 15 pounds of grapes,
or even 20 pounds should be used to each gal
Ion of water. They ehould be picked from the
stalks and slightly broken with the band; let
them stand fer three days, when press them,
draw off the liquor and wash any remaining flavor
from the busks. Add 3 pounds of good sugar
to each gallon of the juice and water and ex
amina if awtii1Ir freA vaaV anil ! fna
mentation has nearly subsided, rack it off; if iq
has been reduced, put into the cask ono pound
of sugar candy, bung It down, and let it stand
15 months before it is bottled.
Very superior wine is made from the pur
juice of ripe grapes, with from one to two pounds
of sugar, and one ounce of crude tartar to each
Take two quarts flour, sift it; 2 tea-spoonsful
of soda, 4 of cream of tartar, and one teaspon
ful of salt; mix them well with flour, then rub
in a lump of lard as large as on egg; add sour
milk enough to roll without more flour; roll half
an ineh thick and bake 15 or 20 minute. If
you do not get them good the first time, do not
be discouraged, but "try again."
Cure for Cancer.
Take a quantity of red oak bark, bum it to
ashes; to this add water, boil to the consistency
of molasses. Apply it freely to the part affec
ted; leave it on for an hour; afterward cover
the plasters with tar; remove in a fair days; and
if protuberance appear in the wound, apply the
plaster and tar alternately until they all disap
