OmCHAMDlNi l>4«tii«»iou by tk« IVllton Farmer*' Club. Mr. Buttertield believed that orchards are a source of profit, that they do "oi receive the care, in many cases, they de serve, anil that the area should be ex· tended in this branch of farming. Dr. Reynolds iuily endorsed Mr. B.*s remark*, aud advised, where natural shelter does not exist, to plant heavy hedges of forest trees, mostly evergreens, as a protection against high winds, and thus turni-h homes tor the farmer's friends, the birds, believing they would destroy many ot the enemies «t the tree aud iu huU. Shield use muck and com post manure in orchard culture. Would graft in the nursery after the second yeur, by splice grafting, having th· cion the same size of the stock, having observed that in this method the union was so com plete as to be hardly discernable one year after. L. Reynolds spoke of the profit in rais ing apples tor the market. Referred to orchards in the town of Jay, one of which had yielded an average of $600 tor some years. Did not fear glutting the market with winter iruit ; that there was a grow ing demand iu apples loi shipping, aud that Maine apples stood A Ne. 1 in point of beauty, firmness and flavor. Would think it sate to have ten acre» in orchards, and be<»t to piav lice what we think is the right; not have our farming all on pa· per; be doe»3 ol the work as well as teacher* of the word. Maj. L. Adam? bore testimony in favor of Maine apples; that it i* a lact they are rated with the best in Boston market; some dealer.- there, however, complain that some lots are not as well sorted as they should be; this fact makes it neces sary that more care be used by home packers and the producers at Ia»ge The Λΐ.

Bv invitation, Mr. Tainter occupied some time in useful and interesting re· marks, showing that he was tamiliar with the subject, sayi)g that we are sending Uh> much money to Xew York lor trees, that there ought to l»e enough rai»ed in each town to supply the de mand; thought it l»«st to gratt some kiuti- whvn in the nurserv, others in the li|; - t:;::gi the w: would lue to ha- e the tree> -et on new, unplow ed land at the disiance ol two rod* apart lor a general rule, !>ut some varieties warranted a little deviation from this rule; !>elie\eJ there are two species ol the borer family, one working at the loot ot the tree, the other higher up on the truiiN and among the limbs, in warring up<>n the<e pests it must be waged to "the knife." Note: farmers should bet ter acquaint themselves» with this enemy to the apple-tree and carry knife and brand to the enemy's camp.

Mr Hatch congratulated Ihe younger members ot the C ub in that we have such able teacher.·», men oi experience am! ability ; considering lh;it this branch of iudu-trj i·. a lifelong study, it i·. im portant that we commente right in this, as well a- in ail other business: deeming it essential that the whole ot the roots be preserved, c:tp ioot and rootlets; adv Ued | planting in snoje cheap box or basket oi j sufficient size to allow ι he roots room for a yea; or more; then plant the whole to gether in the p'ace designed tor the tree, having the c;i>e in which the young tree is growiug of such character that the roots w ill easily lind way out or through ; rear your tree* with very short trunks, gralt in the limb; alter the tree ha* borne; in this way uew and choice kinds j may be tound; fully believed that far- i mers in m.iking ouc their orders to nur sery men h<><»e too many va»iet»es with | a view to the market, but should have ι only ι tew kind-, and those best adapted j to tneii ii. which experience and in ! formation would sliu* ; would pasture bearing orchaid* with swine and fowls, thus destroying many ol the enemies t«» the orchard. Butter f'tictorie/t. Mr. O. S. Bli.-s, furnishes the Country tient Urn an with an account ot a recent visit to the butter factories in Franklin coui ty, X. \ a section in which many dairymen irom Ae vicinity of St Albans, Yt., have located and established facto ries ill which the Jewell Milk Pans are | used : The iactory buildings are all ot a better^ class than the average chee-e factories, and do not ct-t over halt' as much for the same number o. cow s, and there is even inore difference in «:oit ot fixtures and ex pense for labor. The L'uion Factory iu Baugor was the first visited by us. This was not fully supplied with water the past seasou, and reports as iho average amount of milk to make a pound of butter, 24.48 pounds, th ni^h ihev made during a portion of the season, a pound from 21 1-2 pounds of milk, which, as the product of ordinary cow· in ordinary to poor pastures, raaj be set down as a very fair showing. The aggregate ol butter made at this factory was 9,522 pounds, which was sold at the factory for thirty cents a pound. The Cold spring factory of Malon· made a pound of butter from 23 31 pounds of milk. Amount made, 19,776 pounds; t»ales to August 1st, at an average of 29 2-3 cents a pound—(or the remainder of the season at 34 1-9 cents per puund, at the factory. The Kceler Factory, Malone, made a pound ol butter from 20 5-7 pounds of milk. Amount made, 15,012 pounds, which was sold at the factory at 31 cents α pound. The Berry Factory, Malone, made a pouud of butter from 25.1 pounds of milk which they sold at 31 1-4 cents a pound at the factory. Like the Union Factory, they bad not sufficient water to cool their milk, which defect they will remedy for the coming season. Horace Dickinson's factory in Moria, made a pound of butter irom 23 1 8 lbs. of milk, and sold the butter at 30 cents a pound at the factory. The Baily Spring Factory,Chateauguay made a pound of butter from 22.55 lbs. of milk, and sold it at 29 1-5 cents a lb. at the lactory. 11 if till ,UC ll|jpw»»uivni« ··--.■ made are peculiarly due to tb· system of titling the milk iu vogue thero, is only to bo determined by experiment ; that the Jcvrctt pan is a very great improvement upon the old syatera, there cannot be the slightest doubt. All who use it assure u< that ihere is not the slighted difficulty in keeping the cre*rn sweet till all th« cream has ri«en, and that the cream doe» not acquire the filmy conditioo (whieh is now admitted to be icotiditiou precedent to the production of strictly primo but ter,) and as a natural result there aie no "white caps" *:r "tk-cks" produced. Thai the cooperative or tactory β)stem, a? practiced there, is (compared with the tarm dairy system) a very great economy of labor, and prufitnblc in securing η uniformly g»»od article, cann«»t be doubt ed. It must moreover be conceded that, as compared with any other 1'actory re ports which have come under our obser vation, these are exceedingly lavorable to the system. It is to be hoped that mrh experiments will be made the com· ii>g season. l»oth here and elsewhere. as will settle many ol the controverted ques tions in relatiou to butter making. Renovation of Paitarr·· 1 noticed a call in your psuer a fow j weeks ago for the best way to impi'Ove old, mossy, run-out pa»tures. 1 will mj to you the best way I have tried is to plow in the tail or early in the spring and Sow to peas and oats. I put three bush· els of |»e.is and one ol outs to the acre. If the ground is rough 1 take two or three crop> then >eed lo grass. I often get the l>eM cri p the third year. I often manage in the same way with mowing fields that are run out. When 1 do not have ma nure to put on, it is a good crop for me. I sometimes get a hundred bushels a year. I thrash by hand; it is the cheap est for me. I separate the oats lroui the peas wheu I winnow. I mow a* soon as the oats ar e fit to cut and let Ihem lay iu the swarth until they are diy enough to put into the barn, if ihe weather is good. I get good lodder for cattle or horses. If the farmers iu this State on old ruu-out farms, tr* this, they will get a laiger arnouul ol fodder ami not impoverish their land. I have managed in this way tor twenty years past. I make my pork with peas. I calculate them worth as —U'jlbrook. in the Lewiston Journal. F >r the Oxford Democrat.] A HA MULL· IX S FAIX. My ruse-coloted ideas of Spanish see·· ery and character, scattered like blossom leave» the morning we dropped anchor betore the cil) of Valencia. It rained heavily — almost a flood. A dirty wharf, lumbered with tish, kegs, greasy barrels and ail manner ol lorbidding looking merchandise, wai ono of the principal features in the foreground of a cheerless, uninviting picture. Unlike our New England laiu storms, which come in true friendliness, to do us all the good they can, providing an interiorness that is pleasant and satisfactory; these, I was to.d. are usually accompanied by a wild, tearing wind, and hate the spirit of real Spartan tight in them. The general gloominess ot the day seemed linked with the closure of a chapter of personal his· tory— that of leaving home—and in very sympathy wept with me over its fare wells. But who is this? 1 should know he was an officer by his authoritative mien and searching glance—Spanish by the unmis takable phvsii. gnomy and gracefully loose apparel. He came into the cabin and asked the Captain a thousand or less ques tions about u alters which ladies, in gen eral. care little about,and on leaving said : "Madam, 1 hope you are not discontent ed." "I am, somewhat," «a» the reply, when he very graciously assured me that altogether they were considered a patieut people inasmuch as they "let it rain it was about time for the sunshine then, and, touching his scmitrero, he left, uuder the largest umbrella I over saw ; and I blessed him. lie was a true prophet, however, for the sun soon came out in full g ory, and even the little pools were glad, aud kissed, wilh a laugh, his com· ing Î The clean washed city looked iresh and inviting, and after obtaining a guide, who proved to be a faithful one, we lost no time îd joining the morning crowd. Our lit it visit was to the King's Gar den. It w;»> an unfavorable tiuao to visit such a place, for the trees and flower bordered pathways were yet heavy with rain drops. These grounds are the prop erty oi the renowned Rothschilds—the Spanish government having failed to re deem them from a heavy mortgage—and are conspicuous for their undeniable beauty anil taststulnesg of design. We passed from avenue to avenue, Irom nar row foot path to elevated square, and at each step were more and more charmed with the riotous wealth of blossoms ^nd beautiful pieces of statuary. One would readily be forgiven for flirtiug with Ihe graceful Florae and a ho»t ol other chi·· cled beauties of mythological renown, who would coquet t through the interstices of the trees, and with a look of sweet archness play hide-and go-seek with you wheiever you vent. Evergroen and de ciduous trees were classed in order. Full box hedges were artistically cut so as to form urns, baskets and other pretty fig ures. Entire squares were confined to flowers of a fjngle specie; here a bed of plume-like bloaaoms nodded hither and thither in shades of red and orange ; then a vast patch of pure white flower·, not lefts than an acre, which we were told were regarded in the Papal country, as belonging to the Virgin Mary, and which were used in rich festal occasion* to dec· orate her shrines. Oleander tree· of mam moth size wero in the cmbraco of the honeysuckle or other climbing plant·,and showered a wealth of pink-tinted leaves on the clear cut turf beneath. The rar est and costliest of tropical flowers nour ish here in their native beauty by meaus of artificial heat, and mosses, like lichens, that were born under the snows of Ice land, are fostered by a favorable degree of cold. The Passion flower interested us from the associations connected with it. I think that I have heard that this plant was first discovered in oue of our southern States. The Catholic· consider it sacred. The leaves represent the twelve apostles, and a drop that oozes from tho centre ol the flower and glisteus there, is looked upon ai an emblem of our Redeemer's sorrow. Our guide led us through subterranean passages which were half lighted and reeking with dank. n/Um · hut r>wm here. tender, con filling vine· and soil, green liverwort* beirietulod tho mou dy wall, and now und then we noticed the familiar scarlet ge ranium growing with wonderful rank nesa and niatchlo*· beautj from out the rock crevices. as it satisfied wilh her neighborhood, and proud lo bo queen of such a realm. A bower of fleshy-leave»! cryptogamous plant* and ill-scented weeds, looked a» il it might be a letreal for arrant toad· nnd lizards, and we did not examine it very cloeely. We ascend· ed the sunken, irregular «tone stop· and emerged into tho genial sunlight, glad lo breathe purer and sweeter air. SVo were conducted through grove* of acacia and orange trees, to what resembled a coun try hoarse heuse ; my husband stepped upon the piallorm, and simultaneously the doors flew open and a horrible look ing automatic figure oi the older siamp threw a powerful water jot. showering him ? α merci fully. 1 retreated iu «ο· men tar y tetror. whllt guide, who was alone iu the enjoyment Cl J0'"· bubbled ever with laughter.

Lut a man oi the most excellent sect and per* suasion will become incoherent at this wholesale violation ol the law of com mon courtesy, and will never be blamed for threatening to plunge his guide in waters of a highet temperature. Now we will go into the great Cathe dral and then homo. This building was commenced in tho thirteenth century.and completed late iu the fourteenth, being near;} a hundred years in construction. It was built on the site ol a temple of Diana, and is about three hundred feet high. It is a tiue example of rich arch itecture.

Valencia is time-worn. Its churches are crumbling and ivy-covered, and its palaces, which possess tho most peculiar style of Egyptian architecture, are fast decaying. In lact, it conveys a melan choly idea of depopulation. Our guide directed our attention to a chain of weirdly peakod mountains on our left, at the same time informing us that hundreds of robbers have their haunts around them. Wo listened to several heart-thrilling stones, till we trembled with real fear and approaching night shadows warned us to seek moro secure quarters. M. E. F.

Ayer's Sarsaparilla Is widely known as one of the most effectuai remedies ever discovered for cleansing the sys tem and purifying the blood. It has stood tin· test ui yeans with a con stantly growing rejh utation, based on its ' intrinsic virtues, and sustained by its re , markable cures. So mild as to be safe and 1 bénéficiai to children, and yet so searching , as to effectually purge out the great cor ruptions of the blood, such as the scrofulous and syphilitic contamination. Impurities, I or diseases that have lurked in the system ■ for years, soon yield to this powerful anti ! dote, and disappear. Hence its wonderful 1 cures, many of which are publicly known, of Scrofula, and all scrofulous diseases, IHcers, Eruptions, and eruptive dis orders of the skin. Tumors, Blotches, Boils, Pimples, Pustules, s<>rcs,st. Anthony's Fire, Hoso or Erysipe las Tetter, Salt Itheiim, Scald Head, HinffWorm, and Internal Ul cerations of the Uterus, Stomach, ami Liver. It also cures other com plaints, to which it would not seem especi ally adapted, such as Dropsy, Dyspep sia, Fits Neuralgia,Heart Disease. Female Weakness, Debility, and • Lcucorrliœa, when they are manifesta tions of the scrofulous j>oisons. It is an excellent restorer of health and strength in the Spring. By renewing the appetite and vigor of the digestive organs, it dissipates tlit· depression and listless lan guor of the season. Even where no disorder ' appears, people feel better, and live longer, ' for cleansing the blood. 'Hie system moves 1 on with renewed vigor and a uew lease of life. r /; t: r λ ιι a υ is r Dr, J, C, AYER & CO., Lowell, Mass., Practical and Analytical Chemist», SOLD BY ALL DRUGGISTS EVERYWHERE.
