THE small apple crop this year
will cause the labor expended in car
ing for it to be very profitable. Much
fruit is annually lost by careless
handling and packing. It will pay
to be unusually careful of it this
year.
No farmer will question that the
method of feeding animals which
will secure the largest return in meat
from a given expenditure of food, in
cluding the labor required to prepare
and feed it, is the most economical
and profitable. Now that the feed
ing season is upon us, this matter
should hare thoughtful attention.
THE fall plowing of sod ground
tor the next season's crop of corn is
very largely practiced on clay lands,
and those who have practiced it long
ct are most enthusiastic in praise of
its advantages. So fur as forwarding
the spring work is concerned, it seems
to us that those who sow oats on
corn stubble would find a greater ad
vantage in plowing the stubble in the
full. There is little or no question
as to the importance of getting oats
in the ground at the earliest possible
moment, and on lands which will not
get too hard during the winter, the
time saved in the spring by fall plow
ing would be of considerable impor
tance.
EVERYWHERE this season we hear
of the abundant growth of the young
clover. The temptation to pasture
this is very great, and judging by our
own oliservation is generally j ielded
to, though involving large risks to
the stock. An overfeed of young
clover, wet a it generally is in these
c M.l mornings, is very apt to produce
"hovt-n" or "bloat," and ii-sull in
the death ol the animal. We have
already heard of the loss of several
animals from this cause within a few
weeks, one farmer in our own county
having lost three valuable cow*.
Very much of the dsnger from this
source may In.- avoided by not allow
ing the cattle access to the grass
while it is wet. A small feed of
hay in the stable or yard, early in
the morning, will keep them con
tented until the sun shall have dried
the grass, and prevent them from
having such a i a venous appetite
when turned on the grass as will
cause them to gorge themselves.

A neither instance of the great value
of agricultural journals to the prac
tical farmer. We feel |>erfectly safe
in saying tint this inqiwrtanl matter
has never occurred to any farmer in
the world, and possibly the end of
the world might hare la-en leached
without its ever having been thought
of, excepting for the distinguished
correspondent of our distinguished
contemporary. Hut "what are ybu

We do not apprehend that our dis
tinguished contemporary means lo
advise against the use of suine of the
valuable pure-bred fowla by "small
farmers," any more tban it would
counsel the same class of farmers to
grow scrub stock of any other sort.
There are varieties of fowls which
are "fancy" in the true sense of the
term, their only desirable character
istic being as to appearance, and
lieing utterly valueless for either egg
or meal producing purposes. Of
course "small farmers," or large ones
•itlicr, can well afford to let them
done. A mistake. however, i• some
■iinca made by classing some of the
•minently useful kinds among the
4 fancy' simply because they an* kept
pure and distinct from others, and
are bred by fowl fanciers. We have
heard the Plymouth Itocks, and even
the good old-fashioned Dominique*
classed as "fancy" for no letter rea
son than these, and yet no more prac
tical or useful birds than these can
he found among the rarest duog hills

large or small, will IK:SI serve his in

Preparing Cattlo for Winter.
Na1i.,i,.1 1.1,* M . k Journal
The man who, thinking to build
cattle up for winter on turnips, con
taining only ten per cent, of starcb
and fin oil, or on parsnips, generally
counted as pretty good feed, yet with
only eleven per cent, of starch and
no oil, will make very slow headway
indeed. Preparatory t< the coming
on of cold weather cattle require con
centrated food, such as is the oppo
site ol being watery and washy. A
moment's consideration of the fuel
that oats or corn standing in value
as seven to one, while the food value
of turnips or carrots is as one hun
dred and fifty to one, will show that
the latter should not lie relied upon
when strength and tiesb need U In
obtained without undue delay. It is
intended to show by this statement of
the relative values of the articles
named, that seven pounds of oat* or
corn arc equal in flesh-making value
ton hundred and fifty pounds of the
roots named. These arc jmorer ar
tides for use in connection with
grains, hut an animal cannot lie built
up as required at this season of the
year, taking on such vitality and
vigor as will enable it to resist the
cold weather of the winter months cu
these alone.
Caro of Sheep.
lit* J umil,
The rare of even a smail stock of
sheep throughout the year, to have
them always profitable, is a study
that any man who attempts to raise
sheep at all should give his attention.
It is not enough, as vcrv many
men do, who have a lauoabh- desire
to improve their sheep, as sell as
other slock, to make purcb>*e* of
something exceedingly good. u round
prices, and tie n bring the onimals
borne to be treated with neglect.
Such a larmcr will bud tea few v, ars.
(K-rhaps it may only Is n few months
to convince him. to in own sutimuc
lion, at least, that this line stock i*
all a humbug, and that in making the
purchase he w*- Osdiv s lletbsl. Jf
that rosii, however, gets a i oirspring
from ti.i *c improved l am ,HI other
slock, and r is cvetloi. ly* wold in
mnrkctnble • omli ion,nod convincing
proof in the end w ill Iw that the good
blood ha had its t Jfect.
One of the le*t influence* that the
introduction of finest** k on the farm
lias, is that it brings with it usually
lietter care and unproved met. toils of
handling. Th's is particularly so of
sheep, because there is no other kind
of stock that respond* so quickly to
the l**t of csre, or in which there
are heavier losses, 'proporiiot alely
where the flock is neglected.
Ploughing for Frost.
The time for fall ploughing is now
at hand, and the plough should Iw
kept at work wherever it ran Iw run.
Two ploughs, one in fail ate? one in
spiing, is an advantage. We over
look one of nature's agents in pul
verizing heavy soil when wedisfgard
the frost, and our invitations are
usually not very cordial for the work
of the ice king. Water, nse-veiy one
knows, expands with both In at ami
cold. When the haul, heavy soil is
turned over deeply and left 'arrowed
without harrowing, a greater area ol
surface is ex|>o*ed to the action of
frost, and when water is carried down
by the rain it finds greater freedom
among the particle* of earth and
aaturates every portion. When the
freezing tune comes this water is
bound to expand, and wben it does
so everything in its wny taual yield,
and the clod* and lumps of enrtii art
lorn a|iart, disintegrated, and, with
successive ftvezing ami thawing, are
finally made very fine. Nor I* this
all, for when the soil becomes finely
divided chemical changes take place
mote readily ; the inert substance* .
arc acted upon by the elements, and
soluble material takes the place of
heretofore useless toil. The effects
of lieat, cold, rain and air Ae as im
portant and valuable to lite farmer ip
some sections as the application ~f
manure or costly fertilisers.
NINETEEN out of every twenty
farmers in the country are now, or t
soon will lie, fattening stock of some
kind for the "fall killing." It should
lie remeraU re I that the very ls**t re- (
suits, liotli as to economy, and as to
quality of meat, are only to tie oh-!
tained by making the process as
quick ss possible. It is all impor
tant in this matter to "push things."
Thfl Remedy In Undcrdrarning
li.| MM V*tm< t
(hi i-lay soils winter killing litis
heretofore I wen one of the chief
ground* of uncertainty in the wheat
crop. Hut wheat is rarely, if ever,
killed I'v the intenaity of cold. The
plant* ure thrown out from exceaa of
water in the noil, and a* it expand*
on freezing it must have room. This
I it finds by shooting its icicles up
ward at the point of least resistance.
This throws out the wheat. The
remedy is underdrainage.
Rat-Proof Corn Crib
<>#r .f Agricultural I|.ltuiiiUl.
I have recently completed the job
of lining my corn crib with wire
•ereen, Milllciciiily close to guard
against mice ami rats, thieves which
are of the most revolting nature,
taking their choice of our stores and
befouling what they leave. Kvery
inch of inner surface is lined by
sheathing the lirnls-r of frame under
siding, roof and floor; doors and
windows also lined. A grain house,
crib included, thus lined would prove
an economical luxury to every farmer
WATEH is seldom looker] on A 4
being the important element it is to
man ami to civilization. The rocks
were mud and sand made by water
and laid down by it, one kind on top
of another. Coal, made of plants,
was covered up by water, so that the
rotten plants wire kept there and
changed to coal. Veins of lead, cop
per, gold, silver and crystals were
cracks in the rocks, tilled with water
that had these pneious tilings dis
solved in it. And water, as ice
(glaciers, ground up locks into
earth, in which plants can grow, the
sea ami streams helping to do tin
work. Water builds plant", and arii- •
mals, too. Three quarters of what
they are made of is wabr. When
you pay twenty-five cents for a peck
