Aside from iti being it complete catalogue of as good seeds as can be pr'sluced, it con tains much matter of value to every farmer and gardener, and is well wortb preserving as a book of refer ence. FA KM teams that are not worked for some mouths during winter will do better if turned into an open yard I where there is good shelter against i storms, limn when kept in stable and ! fed highly. Exercise and a change of feed is promotive of health, and I when thus wintered on coarse feed till aliout four weeks before spring I wMrk Is gins—when they should bo j taken in and well fed, getting them 1 in condition for work—they will Is ; in In-tter health and more active in i limb and spirit, than when kept in confined stables, and at considerable less expense and care. IN purchasing fruit trees, it is of the first importance that they shall is- true to name, and second, that the trees IK? healthful and well grown. We place accuracy first: a poor tree by care may be grown to make a gofsl one, but if one who intended to set an orchard of Northern Spy or Newtown I'ippin, finds after wailing 1 six or eight years that he has only Karly Harvest or Pumpkin Sweets, lie has no remedy. A good share of his life, so far as orchard culture goes, lias been wasted. Hence our frequent advice not to buy of tree |>cddlera, but to always deal directly with a nursery of known reputation. THE Lancaster AVtr Era publishes an "extract from 'Squire Trou'a Di ary," dated in April, 18f,2, giving an account of a visit made upon lhat day to the farm of a Mr. I.intncr, in Lancaster township. The 'Squire was privileged to examine the books of the farm, and states the "profits" for the year ending April 1, I 8. r f>, to U -53,351.57. As the farm contained but 2Hi acres this amounts to some thing more than 8 jier cent, upon a valuation of S2OO per acre. This was before the days of tobacco in Lancaster county, and this amount was all derived from ordinary farm products, justify ing the 'Squire'* as sertion that "Mr. Lintncr is the owner of one of the most valuable farms in Lancaster county." We have just a suspicion that the 'Squire inadvert ently fell into error in using the word "profits," and that the sum named represents the total income from the farm, from which the should be deducted to find the true profits. A I. ATE decision in a Chicago court, in a case concerning the pat ents on the barbed wire fencing is to the effect that not only manufacturers and dealers, but the purchasers and users—the farmers who have bought the wire, and made fences of it on their property—arc limbic for dam ages to the parties who gained the suit. If this decision be in accord ance with the existing patent laws— and we presume it is—then the exist ing pstcnt laws arc very oppressive, and very ridiculous, and should be abrogated at the earliest possible moment. That manufacturers and sellers should be indictable and pun ishable for infringements of patents is perfectly right ami proper; but it is manifestly wrong and improper that the innocent purchaser and user —in very many cases a plain farmer who baa no opportunity for ascer taining who may be the rigbtfbl owner of the patented article be ie urged by the plausible "agent" to purchase—should be held in the same way. A very large proportion of the patents obtained every year arc for articles for the cxclueive use of farmera—(the article in question ' is a fair illustration), and therefor* farmers have n direct interest in tin ri-|H-al of this feature of the patent laws, and should move in the mattei at once. When a farmer lias pur chased and puid for the right to uu a patent plow, or patent gate, 01 patent fence, he should be protected in that right. Possibly the "agent' -if whom he purchased was not Un lawful owner of the patent, and had no right to sell; but this the pur chaser had no mentis of ascertaining, and whatever may have been done to the rightful owner, should In; made good by the pretender who derived the pecuniary benefit from the trans action. THE long, hard winter continues, and if the belief of those who pin their faith to the venerable ground bog theory is well founded, it is likely to continue for some time yet. Con sidering the shortness of last season's bay crop it is altogether probable that on many farms—good ones, t*>o —in Centre county, the "bottom of the mow" will ap|>ear in sight long before the pasture will carry the stock, and compel the purchase of some kind of "ail interim" provender. To such of the DEMOCRAT'S readers as may find themselves in this un pleasant predicament we venture to suggest the wisdom of spending their money for some of the concentrated foods, such as bran, corn rneal and cotton seed meal. These are always "on the market," easily to be bad, easy to handle and feed, and besides fur nishing more feed for the same mon ey than bay or fodder will. Hy their richness they will add to the manure heap, and return to the farm the greater portion of their cost. Clippings and Comments. What can I apply to render solid clay soil les tenacious? I can get spent tsrihark and coal ashes for the hauling : wood ashes, leached, 'J', cent* per t*o horse load; unleached, It cents per bushel ; manuie Irom the horse stables. 25 cents |>er load, ail one mile ditanl Also swamp muck at a small expense. What can I use most profitably?— l or. of A. J. Tribune. That is very much as though he should say, "What can I do to get rich ? I can get greenbacks for the asking, gold and silver at twenty-five cents on the dollar, and real estate at onc-fiftb of ita value. What can 1 use most profitably ?" Quoting from a friend of ours, of eminent legal attainments and agricultural appe tite, when asked by the polite hotel waiter, "Will you hare beefsteak, veal cutlet, mutton chop or baked trout?" we should answer "Yes" That's about the easiest agricultural conundrum that we remember to have met. "n* gallon of neat'* fool oil mixed • iih four ounces of lampblack makes a good hsrnes* oil.— Record, And the comparative leisure of the present severe weather it an excellent time to apply it. Wash your harness with w arm—not hot— water, and then apply the oil before it gets quite dry. A simple and effective remedy for bee on cattle it to give them a thorough •lusting over with wo >d ashes ever other day, brushing them clean the tollowing day. Erchavgt, Do not let the cattle get wet in the meantime, or the hair will be "reme died," as well ss the lice. Feed the Dry Cows Well. The DEMOCRAT has uniformly held that in feeding the dry cows well, and having them accumulate fat, the owner is simply tnsking deposits of milk and butter, which will Ire re turned with interest when the cows shsll have again come in profit. We find in one of our contemporaries a paragraph credited to the corres pondence of the Country Gentleman, which we quote in support of our position: A neighbor has s grade Jersey cow. In June her milk MM exceedingly rich, testing by the cream gauge upward of 24 per cent.; the middle of October it tested only 18 |-er cent. The general nbaervation of dairymen la that quality increases with the lengthening of the period of milking. Thi# cow waa in perfect health throughout the season, and her food waa unchanged. What ia the cause of this exceptional action! No cause baa been discovered except it le this : In June she waa fat; In Octo her she waa poor in flesh from exoemtve milk production. Tbexbeory based on this is that in June she started with an accumulated store of material which went to add quantity and quality to the milk she naturally would have produced from her food. Rut that store being exhausted the quantity and quality were both neceeaarily reduced. 1 Tttt United Bla tea and Canada ex ported last season up to December 21, 976,000 barrels of apples. ' How Shall W Treat a Crop of Clover in OrJer to Derive the Greatest Benefit From It? At a recent meeting of the fiun- r powder Farmer*' Club, one of the best sustained club*, and conqmed of HO rue of the best farmer* in Mary land, the above question wan the sul. ject for the regular discussion. We have not the apace to give the name* nor all the remark* of the gentlemen who participated in the diacuaaion, but quote from the detailed proceed ing*, as published in the Amrrimn Farmer , the pith of the sentiment of each speaker: Mow first crop and leave the sec ond to shade the ground ; mowing, the second year, the first crop and leave the second crop stand and plow for wheat, or for corn. The first difficulty is to get the clover. If fortunate enough to se cure a set, mow the first crop the first year and let the second lie on the ground. The second year, cut off first crop and leave second. Then plow for corn. Bow, in connection with other i grasses, timothy mainly. The first year mow the first crop and put it no for feed, and if the seed is go*>d take it off. The second year—looking to i meadows—mow the first crop and j pasture some afterwards. Mow it the first year and let the 1 after crop remain on the ground, pas '< turing lightly only. The second year pasture, leaving the alter crop on the land. Then plow for wheat, or for corn. Feed to sheep and cattle ami | not sell clover, and feed at home, ] even if the price was $20.00 a ton. Pasture the first year, but not too close. The second year mow the first crop and let second crop remain and turn it under for wheat. Stubble again and calculate to get a good set |of clover from second crop.
