Write it ami tend il to the. "Agrieultural Editor of the Dkmoi kaT, Hellefonte, I'enn'a," that other fnrmern may hare thr benefit of it. Let eommunicationn be timely, and b' eure that they are brief and well pointed. It is a rare thing to have so long continued a low range of the ther mometer as prevailed since the 10th instant, at this season of the year. It seems almost impossible that fruit shall not have sulfered to a very great extent. We shall be much in terested in reports from those of our readers who sowed their clover seed during the lirst ten days of the month. We fear many will mourn that "clover is not a good catch this year." The old QUAKER said to his son: "John, never get trusted, hut if thee gets trusted for anything let it lie fur manure, because that will help thee pay it back again. Tukkk is no "guess work'' and no shade of uncertainty as to the man ner of producing good crops. Plants must be fed if they are to be pro ductive and the farmer who users but little manure should not complain if iiis crops are small. A New York farmer states that he uses only coal gas tar to prevent the ravages of the potato beetle. He puts a gallon of tar in a tub, over which he pours boiling water, which is al lowed to settle and cool. This is sprinkled over the vines with an or dinary sprinkler. A gallon of tar, costing T.*> cents, suflices for several acres of i>otalocß. 1 AM fully convinced that farms can never grow old and worn out if clover and sheep arc grown on them. One with the other is Irettcr than either alone. Taking into considera tion the benefit our farmers derive from sheep, we can aiford to sell wool very cheap; so cheap that 1 do not care to say how low the price can IK-. The safety of sheep stock i-- another point not always considered, as, if he dies, he leaves his wool or |*dt to pay his loard since his last clip. He dies out of debt to bis owner, and if the owner does not secure the goods and chattels of the deceased, it is not the sheep's fault. In fact, from the hour of his birth he in-gins to pay bis board, by scattering ma nure wherever you allow him to run. l*. 1\ Richmond. Relentless War on nil Insects. ri.tU *i| h)% U' *t>! if boxes are placed in the orchards | with holes small enough to keep out ! the blue birds and our pugnacious sparrows, the wrens will build in them, but not unless the boles are small enough for them to barely en ter. Reing very small in size, the wren will sink such boxes for pro lection, and they will wage relentless war on all insects. Washing tho Bark Country <s't>t!"Tu*n We have always regarded good cul tivation as more im|>ortant than wu*h ing the bark of fruit trees with lime, soap or potash, and that is one reason why trees which are washed grow lict ter than others is Is-oaum those who take the pains to wash tin- bark 'ake lieiter care in other ways. Never theless, the wnshing of the bark may benefit the trees to a certain extent, at the same time that the appearance will lie improved. If lime is used, it should lie ao thinly mixed with water as not to form a crust, or to give a white coating to the bark. Potash should lie so weak as not to corrode the bark of young trees. One of the best applications, how ever, appeal's to lie a solution of aloes in warm water, which readily de stroys the insects and their eggs in the bark. Where and How to Apply Fortfl icers. From <hw Agrimltariet. It in often diflicult to decide—for btm-ytrd or stable manures, or for any artificial fertilizer—whether to apply it on the surface, or bury it deeply. Here in a hint or two. If not strong enough to injure the first tender roots, a little manure near at hand gives the plant a good send off, like nourishing food to the young calf or other animal; the aftergrowth la much better if the young animal or plant ianot dwnrfed by imperfect and insufficient diet. Therefore, drilling innocuous hand fertilizers in with the •eed is useful, as is putting some well-rolled milnlire or lynched ashes into hills of corn, potatoes, indeed with all planted seeds. But there arc good reasons for distributing moat of the manures or fetilizers all through the toil, and as deeply as the plant roots can possibly pene trate. The growth and vigor of all plants or crops depend chiefly upon a good supply of strong roots thu stretch out far, arxl thus gather food over the widest extent of soil. If a nourishing stalk of coin, grain, or grass, be carefully washed, so as to have all its roots or rootlets attached, there will be found a wonderful mass of hundreds and even thousands of roots to any plant, and they extend oir a long distance, frequently several feet—the farther tho belter, to collect more food and moisture. I'ut some manure or fertilizer in place two feet away from acorn or potato hill, or from almost any plant, and a large mass of roots will go out in that direction. So if we mix manures or fertilizers well through the whole soil, they attract these food-seeking roots to a greater distance ; arid they thus come in contact with more of the rood already in the soil, and find more moisture in dry weather. A deeply stirred soil, with manure at the bottom, develops water-pumping roots below the reach of any ordi nary drouth, and the crops keep right on growing—all the more rapidly on account of the helpful son's rays that would scorch a plant not reach ing a deep moisture. Kocp tho Lambs Over. < n. .( Cov&try Gtnllcttiq, It ia profitable to keep lambs over one winter and sell in spring as "shearlings," clipping the fleece early in the spring. I speak now of "South downs." With judicious feeding. Southdown shearling lambs will weigh 150 pounds, and if the market is watched will bring 0 cents per pound, bearing in mind the high favor in which Southdown mutton stands compared with other sheep. This price can easily be obtained from year to year. The wool of the .South down always tops the list, and i* worth on an average 40 cents per pound. I am yearly being more convinced that tire farmer who sells a lamb when 4 months old commits a griev ous blunder to iris own hurt. Let us figure a little : The value of a fleece of say 7 pounds, at 40 cents per pound, isfg.SO: the carcass of, say 150 pound*, at fi cents, is 80—in all, $ll.BO. iH-duct $ the selling price of a lamb at 1 months old, and we find the farmer has $-.<• f or the keeping of the lamb from 1 months old until sold as a shearing. Soulhdowns are hearty ; more can 1m- kept to the acre than any other breed ; their wool and mutton always brings a high price, and in other re sjM-ets for general utility they stand away ahead of all others. I have not any Kouthdowns for sale, and these lines arc penned hastily for the purpose of eliciting still more infor mation upon the |oint touched as to the keeping of all iambs till they are "one shear." Cultivation of Millet. <Vr (f .1-lit G.nllwi.i. Some- ten years' experience in growing millet for a forage an<l bay crop, baa given me atich a very favor able opinion in regard to it. that 1 tliiirk it is more profitable to farm without meadow*—relying upon clo vt r, in rotation with ot her grain crop* and millet, to supply the want of the *toek for bidder—than to devote so much land to meadow*. This crop is rich in the albuminoids, so essential for the production of milk, and 1 know of no dry food that is more valuable, and 1 esteem it aliovc the liest timothy or red-top for that pur pose. I always sow a full bushel of 50 pounds |H'r acre, for several reasons : When sown thickly, the growth is more to foliage than to stalk, and by crowding, a finer quality of fodder is prfiduced. The priee of seed usually ranges from $ 1.25 to $2 per bushel. As last summer was a most remarkablo season to mature crops, it is to be presumed that prices will lie low the present season. When a person has once commenc ed to raise millet—and finds that he has a genuine variety of any of the popular sorts —the lictter way then is for him to save his own seed, which can le very cheaply done if he has a tight barn floor. As no one will usually need over ten bushels of seed, a fourth of an acre of the best of the crop can be allowed to stand until thoroughly ripe. It can lie easily cut and brought to the barn, and the seed when dry, can be trodden out with horacs or colts, and then cleaned up. II the seed ia not all removed no losa will result, as the straw will lie fed to stock. Another way is to run it through a threshing machine, saving the greater part of the seed. Top-Dressing is Always a Benefit. n F. It was noticed, a long time since, that in sections where the noil was very or only moderately fertile, the dust blown from highways on the ad jacent fields acted, in some cases, as s strong, and, in nearly all, as s bene ficial fertilizer. The conclusion was thus jumped at that limestock rock, ground fine, would act in tbe same way ; but experiments with it did not justify the expense incurred, snd thst method of ferUtizing wss abandoned. Nevertheless, practical men have long since discovered that a top-dressing of any kind has an influence for good on crops ont of ail proportion to tbe amount used. Thus, for exsmple, on the strong cisy lands of the winter wheat regions of Illinois, where the i * / - . . ■ . ■ . Noil lacks nothing for the wheat crop but vegetable matter, and nothing for com except that of moiature, It in found the lightest kind of a top dressing of manure acts marvelously In increasing the yield of the cereals. ly some these astonishing effects are attributed to the fungous spores in the manure, which act as yeast acts, and set up the phenomena of nitrifi cation. which seems to be essential to ali soils where great crops of the cereals are produced. Just why these things are so we do not yet know, but we do know that a top-dressing of almost any kind iB a benefit, both to the crops and the land, and may be indulged in, in almost any case, with the certainty of getting well paid for the work done.
