Bees and Penultry, and How to Take Care of them. The Proper Food for Cows--Sheep and Their Diseases-The Best Varie ties of Poultry-lMinor Farm Notes. sTrrIN Ia lflNOs. In selettig eggs for settlng, always re member that the newest laid are the beet, and that those from the seoond litter are better that the first laying. Eggs from the first litter are generally smaller, contain lees vi tality, and are not so likely so be fertilized as the later litters. Josh Billings says that the best time to set a hen is when the heni wants to set. To that piece of wisdom let us add: Set your liens at night-alwaye. If you have any doubts about the rellablity of your hen, give her two or thee china or wo 'den neat-eggs to practice upon wntlishe settles down to business. If yU want to set your hen in a strange place, have your nest ready, git your hen after avoid frightening her, place her care on the nest fasten a bo' rd over the front inet, leaving only a arack for ventila and do not remove the board until after the next night. In nine cases out of ten Sh will come off in the morning, eat her' kesk and go back to her nest; but you et jie on thelookout for her soon after day Iti d I she does not go backto her neat, pt hrl back ely, and fauten her in for an other day. Keep orn, water, gravel and ehiroaal, and adust box where your setting hea* can help themselves. After the eggs asve been set on a few days, the eggs that have been impregnated can readily be de by testing them with an egg tester. e eggs are white-shelled they can be as on the fourth day, but with dark sIerk eggs, it is better to wait until the th day. The non-fertile eggs will pre p' c.l t lear, unclouded appearance, while a Asak pot, with small red veins radiating om et can be distinctly seen in the fertile S,;· e a(dvantage to be derived from asserting a daring Incubation are obvious. If three oaur hens goare set at the same time, it quite liequently happens that after the non-fertile s have been ttken from the nest, two of .-Plen ~ llaccommodate all the eggs that tin a: living germ, and in that case the S herb s can be set again with a fresh lot of t . In the earlier part of the season, when " Mnag hens are searce, I find this a great ad Wantatge. The clear egse, if taken from the S i rt b.ore the ninth day, can be boiled and agd for hiloken food. . o D not imagine that handling eReduring hbnbation wIll prevent hatching.

Durins the last week of Ihcubation the eggs should be sprinkled every other day with warm water. Alli OF nIum FBOM ~IE.zT.AR To MAY. hbls is perhaps, the time upon which our puesin bee keeping, the oomling season. Iargpey depends. From the middle of Feb ruary to the first of May bee keepers want to several things carefully and prudently. d e latter part of February be warm Wet bees want to be fed, not only those that -si 1dang1er of starvation, but even those that have enough to get through the winter and sprln want to be fed a little to stlmu la reed . Jlees are now exposed to sev ert~idaof ury~. They may be strong In unmbwe and the family be too large for the Atm* of provisions, but while it exposes them aothe dangers of starvation, it uselsts them , Sautrdng againt the bee moth, as the beel gtover all the combs, but where stooke are e to dwindle down very small, the moth takes advantage of the earliest warm days to deposit their eg`e, and a crop of parasites loon be rseed to eat up the combs and r the bees. Italian bees, however, pro themselves much better than the blacks. do not remember of ever having lost a sin ale stoek of Italians from the effects of moth. Chickens kept about the bees are also some proteqtan they catch the moths It they more but they usually sit around in the cor oser so quietly and look so much like an old weatherbeaten sliver that they are rarely seensor ntied unless they fly. Another ad Svantage of stimulating the bees to early b ding is to have them strong when fruit \trea bloom. The honey from this source Is ealy lost for want of bews to gather it. Wºin but few bees are in the hive. they are allaeeded to keep the brood warm. Isaother advantage of stimulating to "slybreedint is the anducement to early i . Bees that do not make an early stt pare n so belated that they fall to swatr at all, or if they do it Is often so late that the young swarms faill to gather honey ugh toe overthe following winter, while os at swarm early often gather consid egsblssurplus honey. n. ipuiatng the bees at the proper time succeed In raising queens much by this means be able to make swarms quite early, and In a good gather a large amount of surplus "Z l'ese reasons begin to stimulate your time, and so prepare to get a of honey when the flowers appear. sti ulatin eed a much thinner syrup ha tr fall feedg.

I fed last all from sacks made of good ticking, and on olftI ne out that seemed too heavy to be emty I found the bees had built quite a large 41mb on the end of the sack, and reaching nearly to the bottom of the halve. I want to ayrg ht here that my modie of leeding from ak ansucceeded admirably, but several tiume made my syrup too thlck, and it did not filter through fast enough. QVunx Bans. The.ehanges that occur from the egg to the peareet bee are-the worker passeaeabout three and a half days in the egg. It Is then iathab.d-a small white worm, grub or mag got, and is called larva, a Latin word that I aeaus mask, beeause the perfect Insect is concealed or masked In that state. It re talns tuIs for about five days, when the cell Is seased over by the bees and the larva spins around Itself a silken coverlui called nocoon. ThIs Is lb third stage, and is now ealled a nym pupa or chrysalis. It remains n this .tateatl the twenty-first day from the time the m was laid, when it becomes a perfect I or ý sgo. The drone passes eight days In the egg, sx or seven in the larva, and 4omes outa bee on the twenty-fourth day. The queen psases three days in the egg, five In the larva state, and comes out a perfect quleen on the sixteenth day. rEun FORn ows. AS many of your readers, like myself, have to buy feed for their cows, It may be of ser vice to give my formula. I have been using for the past six months cotton seed meal, wheat bran and cut straw, n the following proportions : three quarts of cotton seed meal, one peck bran, two bushels cut staw, or a daily ration, This quantity, dvidedfedthreetmesnaday. Mycow is a a larg grade short-horn, and has yielded stedY from three-and-a-half to four gallons of milk daily under this feeding, and she gets no slop. For as small a cow as a Jersey, rob a third less of tis ration would be a During the summer I turned my cow on a c Sermuda grass plat, left off the straw and dl- t minished the cotton seed meal aoe-third. a After the grass had been eateu off I restored c th tems to the ration, and except for two a lays found no diminution in her y leld. C [buy ootton seed meal in Augusta at 1 vent per pIund in sacks of 100. pounds each. A a quart weighs I, pounds. With bran at 1 a eat per pound, though I suspect it is a little d ger ano, oat str;aw at 86 cente per 100, 1 w ration would cost about 15 cents per diem. St must be remembered that this is high t lrtand r a large oow. Themeal and w bran should '46 m WRY sod Wid 0 1 IVAl "smeal Le more nutritious than any m.terlal, weight for weight. The oil having been expressed from i the great ob jeotijt s to ootton seed, vis.: Its bulk and the waxy butter resulting from its use are re moved. The constipating tendency of the meal is neutrallzed by the bran, itself nutri tious. The oat straw supplies bulk and aids digestion and carbon to warm the body. If hay-good hay--Is substitu. ed for oat straw the meal should be diminished. If wheat straw Is used the bran eshold be increased. It would be of advantage to give an occra sional feed of turnips or potatoes during the winter; they seem to stimulate the glands to more active secretion. The other day I gave my cow a handful of sweet potatoes, and that night she ave nearly a quart more milk than usual. Of course ample protection against wind and rain must be provided, else all the feed you can give a cow will not make her profitable property, and if you want the best return look after the feeding yourself.-[H., In LSouthern Cultivator. CURE FOR FOOT BOT IN sHEEP. The Ohio Farm r once gave this remedy for foot rot: Three parts pure tar, one part pure white lead, two ounces finely-pulverized blue stone to one pint of above. Add one-fourth ounce (fluid) nitric acid. While stirring these add enough crudbeoll (unrefined ground oil) to make a thin salve. Nitric aoid will lose its strength, therefore compound but a small portion at a time--say one-fourth of a pint. liheep should be yarded for the operation while their feet are wet, if praoticable, as their hoofs can be readily cut. Have a trough made with boards twelve or fifteen inches wide and three or four feet long, on leges, so as to make the trough waist high. Place the aneep with his back in the trough, and you are ready for the operation. Your knife should have a narrow blade and very sharp and on the effectual performance of this all depends. It the disease s lD the first stage, viz, if there is merely an erosion and ulceration of the cutiole and flesh in the cleft above the walls of the hoof, no paring Is neo esseary. But it ulceration has established it Self between the hoof and fleshy sole, the ul cerated parts, be they more or less extenslve, must be entirely denuded of their home cov ering, cost what it may of time and care. It is better not to wound the sole so as to cause it to bleed, as the running blood will prevent the application of medicine taking effect. Ap ply the salve with a small paddle letting it extend up the cleft as high as the billux naval. Apply the medicine to every sheep and every foot, as you will never get clear of the disease by doctoring only the diseased ones. Keep the sheep you have doctored in a dry place over night; then turn them into the same pasture it you wish, as the medicine will ad here to the feet until the virus has been washed off by the grass. It Is best to apply the med iloine two or three times, so as to be sure and catch every one. Cleanse the sheds thorough ly, as the virus might remain In the dung and take effect after an indefinite length of time. 01055-REUD1INu AMONG FlIN. Mr. Robert B. Roosevelt, so well known in connection with fish breeding, is responsible for some surprising assertions with regard to the inter-crossing of distinct species of fish. Some two years ago the eggs of a shad were placed in a pan of fresh water which could not have contained any milt of the male shad. This done, the eggs were mixed with the milt of a striped base, and they were im mediately fertillzed. hey were then placed in the shad-hatching boxes, and fully 10,000 young cross-breeds were the result. Tney were turned into the river at the proper time and it is not yet time for them to return, if they follow the customs of their mother. That the hybrids are likely to thrive and breed is thought probable after the perfect success that has followed the crossing of the Califbrnia salmon and the common brook trout. Mr. Roosevelt says: "We have crossed fifteen or twenty different breeds, and all suo cestsfilly, and I can assure you that the re suit is a strong argument in favor of Dar winism, for it shows that all fish may pos dlbly have grown out of one or two varieties. This would account for what is called the 'land-locked salmon' which is found in lakes having no comatunication with the sea. The object of this crossing and breeding is to im prove the fish, just as they cross neat cattle and horses, and even fruits and flowers. The result will be to make fish food plenty, and to add a large number of 'queer fish' to the num ber already in existence." PLYMOUTH ROOKS. The color of the Plymouth Rook, which is attracting so much attention of late, is dark steel gray, with distinct white bars across each feathel; legs a bright yellow, with a dark shade running down the front and free free from feathere; co*Tb single, and stand ing erect, with even seratures. They are very close feathered, having little superfluous luff, and are very meaty which makes them weigh heavy for fowls thl look so small com pared with Aelatics. locks weighing ten to twelve pounds at maturity, hens eight to ten pounds, they are the best for table use of any fowl, except, it may be, the Dorking, and, as they become known, will stand in this country where the latter does in England--at the head as a table fowl. They are perfectly hardy, and mature early, making o broil ers at eight or ten weeks old; flesh yellow and very juicy. They are of Yankee origin, having originated In the old Nutmeg State by a cross between the black Java and the Dominique. PROPAGATING POTATOES. A New Jersey correspondent has tried to his satisfaction the experiment of propa gating weet potatoes from vines saved dufrig the winter. In the fal, any time before frost, the vines may be cut in any length and placed in layers on the surface of the earth to the depth of twelve or eighteen Inches. Cover the vines whilst damp with partially rotten straw to the depth of six inches, and cover the whole with a light soil about four inches deep. In this wa the vines will keep during the winter, and in the spring will put out sprouts as the potato itself when bedded. T'he draws, or sprouts, can be planted first, and the vine itself can be out up and used as we generally plant slips. FAlM NomTE. My hogs have never been clear from lice until within the last two years, and I have never raised and fatted less than 100 head of hogs that averaged from 900 to 350 pounds at the age of from 10 to 12 months during each year for the last seven years, and I have never lost one hog with the cholera. I have tried nearly every remedy that I had read or heard of, and none proved effective until I tried coal oil or kerosene. With 50 cents' worth I can rid 100 head of hogs of lice in the worst form, by taking my oil can when the hogs are feeding and sprinkling the neck and shoulders well with oil until it runs down either side and meets underneath. The best soil for wheat is where clay pre dominates. A mixture of sand and clay is the best soil for a succession of crops, and for a bright, stiff straw, but too sandy a soil is too porous for wheat, although a good spring wheat is frequently grown on sandy soils. Muck is not well adapted for the growth of wheat, but where the land is rich wheat will succeed on a variety of soils. There is no bet ter preparation for wheat than clover turned under. Nitrogen is needed for the growth of wheat, and if urine of the house or cow is ap plied to the growing crop early in the spring, pou may look for a good yield of grain. It Is generally supposed that the roots of grass do not penetrate very deep, but these roots have been traced as far down into the soil as four feet. Persons plowing for seed ing think that just loosening the surface is sufficient, but if deep plowing is necessary for any kind of crops it is for grass, unless the soil has been deeply worked for other crops. A correspondent of the New York Tribune says: "Having raised many calves in the last twelve years, and found their thrift checked by loose condition of the bowels I this fail gave hardstack tea in their drink by advice of an old army surgeon. These were cured in twenty-four hours, and have since grown beautifully, with no recurrence of the complaint." The most approved method of catching a sheep is to wait until the animal gets behind and close to the other sheep, then make a dash at his left hind leg, catching hold of the leg with the right hand above the hock. To cure the scab or sourvy legs in poultry take lard and kerosene oil, in equal parts, to whlph add sulphur sumclent to make a paste. come away; the u. arwlth a little olive oil. Oare should be takn that ileh cows have salt twice a week and that they have access to water soon after taking the salt, because salt in its orude state is poisonous and will create a high fever in the stomach, unless di luted with water which relieves the animal from burning thirst. Vegetables require rich food. In getting ready for spring vegetables do not fear to pile on the manure. It is the rank, rich growth which gives the agreeable tender ness, and without an abundance of manure this cannot be secured. Deep soil Is also a great element of success in this branch of husbandry. Prof. Atwater says the ingredients most likely to be deficient in common soils are phos phoric slid, nltrogen and potash. When asked i it would pay to use them he replied if used rationally, yes; if irrationally, no. He said he could give no rule to apply them. The wants of the soil must be studied, or, in other words, use brains in farming. An exchange gives the following as a cheap and true barometer. Put a small quantity of finely pulverized alum in a long half-ounce vial and fill it with spirits of wine. When the atmospere is dry and clear the spirits will be as clear as crystal, but on the approach of rain or bad weather the alum will rise in the centre in the form of a spiral cloud, which is an infallible indication of rain or bad weather. There is a difference between "salting the butter" and buttering the salt, which the makers of some of the butter found in the markets fail to distingulsh. At the late dairy exhibition in Massachusetts the premium lots, according to the statements, averaged six ounces of salt to every ten pounds of but ter; the range was from four to nine ounces, Indicating the general tendency toward a fresher article. The time of an ounce to a pound has passed. Recent experiments in Germany go to show that in feeding potatoes to milch cows they should be fed raw if milk is wanted, dnd cooked if butter Is the object. In these experi ments raw potatoes added to the regular food gave 282> pounds of milk per week,ylelding 68 pounds or butter; while with oooked potatoes the yield was 24h>' pounds of milk, which made 9% pounds of butter. The average butter yield of the Ayrshire cow is one pound from twenty to twenty five pounds of milk; from the Jersey it l one pound of butter to eighteen pounds of milk. A correspondent at Keene, N. H., recom mends boiled potatoes as a remedy for diarrhea in cattle. He says that three peaks a day fed warm, cured in two days an ox of his that was badly affected in that way. Persons using nitrate of soda as a fertilizer ought to bear in mind that of all fertilizers it is the easiest washed out from the soil. A writer in the Garden says that if potting soil is placed for a day or two in the hen yard every particle of it is dug over and all grubs and eggs of insects are washed out. To make a chicken ooop-get store goods boxes (about 18x0), put strips the short way, aboutthree inches apart. Be sure to putin floors. A correspondent writes: "Last season I kept the striped bugs from my cucumbers by saturating ashes with kerosene and applying a handfull in a hill." The rain annually pours into the soil a quantity of nitrate or ammonia fully equiva lent to three pounds per acre. A Cresas aby.
