Care of Stock in April.
Live stock of all kinds often Buffer as
much from banger and cold in April as
at any time daring the whole of, the
colder season. Rainy, chilly days are
quite severe on the young lambs, calves,
pigs, and in fact the grown stock, and
they should have some place of shelter to
retire to at such times. A run on the rye
or winter oats will help the young stock,
also the geese and other poultry, very
The milch cow should have meal or
bran given her, at least once a day, in
tepid water, with a little salt. A gallon
of meal a day-rworth ten cents to each
milch cow, would return at least two gal
lons of milk daily worth fifty cents - to
any family, besides batter, and you would
have the satisfaction of seeing that your
cow was not a walking advertisement for
a crow sapper. Try It. It will pay you
to bay meal pure, straight oat meal
for the milob cow at eighty cents a bushel
even though it is much cheaper now. If
you want milk you must feed something
to make the milk out of.
Haul in a load or two of marl, aud put
it down where the bens can have free
access to it. Tbey will visit it often and
you will have no more soft eggs as long
as it lasts. Besides yon will get more
eggs, and your bens will be healthier
From now po, wheat chaff, or dry saw
dust, makes the best bedding for the
horse or cow. Leaves from the woods
are full of ticks, which get upon the ani
mals. Nothing makes a cleaner bed or a
better absorbant. than dry sawdust, either
pine or oak.
Use the iron comb less and the stiff hair
brush more in grooming horses. Also
brush the milch cows daily before they
are milked. Give the horses oak bark
pounded fine once a week, a single hand
ful at a time in a little meal.
Economy "Waste Not, Want Not."
It takes a great deal of calculation and
eoonomy to get along in the world now-a-days,
and it is not every one that is fully
equal to the task. Some men plan, ex
periment and economize all their life, and
after all fail of finding the sure road to
Now economy, thrift, accumulation of
property, lies more in the method of sav
ing than in making. One can care to
waste nothing without being niggardly,
and a careful person can make an old arti
cle last and do the work of two seasons,
where most men buy new every year.
When you get a new implement take
care of it ; when you make a crop save it
not only from the weather, but from loss
in the house. Much is lost by rats, by a
leak in the roof or a hole in the floor.
Rust and rain wear out the plows and
hoes faster than labor.
With a little wire two pair of old traces
will make a good pair and save . you a
dollar. A new bottom to a cart will
sometimes prevent the need of getting
one for a twelvemonth. A cultivator and
a plow are worth more than two plows.
Corn ground is worth more than whole
corn for horses, but for no other stock,
counting the time and toll corn at
So with a hundred things. One must
think and calculate. He must observe
and compare. The only secret about it is
to take good care of a thing after you get
it, to save your money after you make it.
Don't spend a dollar when fifty cents
would meet the case. Get bottom prices
when you buy.
To Remove Vermin.
As this is. the time of year all stock are
troubled more or less with parasite in
sects, I will hereby give what has proved
of great value to us. Take, a common bar
of soft soap; place in a pan containing a
little water; then add carbolic acid crys
tals ; carbolic aoid can be had of any
druggist in, one pound bottles for 75 cents
each; at least one ounce of acid to each
pound of soap used there is no danger if
used stronger, lo red ace the crystals to
a fluid state remove the cork from the
bottle, pour in water and beat in water,
when it may be readily poured out and
mixed with the soap. When cool a
strong suds made of this soap will be sure
death to all insects that live on domestic
animals. It will cure mange, barn itch
and all cutaneous diseases, and make a
cheap and effectual sheep dip. When
cattle are hide bound or the hair does not
appear healthy, a wash of the suds will
prove albenefit, as it is cltffcn and healing
in the case of sores. It is valuable in the
poultry house. It is a good and sure dis
infectant, is cheap safe and effectual, and
will be found useful for a great variety
Facts Worth Remembering. Liebig
mates the statement that ram-water fil
tered through field or garden soil does
not dissolve out a trace of potash, silicic
acid, ammonia, or phosphoric acid. The
soil does not give up to the water one
pamcie or tne tood ot plants which it
contains. The most continuous rain can
not remove from the field, except me
chanically, any of the essential constitu
ents of its fertility. The soil not only re
tains hrmly all the food of plants which
is actually in it, but its power to preserve
all that may be useful to them also ex

From the Fayetteville Observer.
The pernicious habits and destructive
proclivities of the English sparrow we
have long well known and dreaded ; for
many years we have carefully studied his
nature and noted his extraordinary rapid
increase, and we nave never omitieu uu
opportunity to warn the farmers of this
- . t. 3 . . : r .1
section against ma uestiuwvuvi luouupo
and havoc among other birds. We have
never by auy means overstated the mag
nitude of the evil, and we receive ample
corroboration of our views from very high
authority. We are indebted to Hon.
Wharton J. Green, our Representative in
Congress, for the advance-Bheets of the
forthcoming report of Dr. Merriam, Orni
thologist of the United States Depart
ment of Agrioulture, in which he speaks
in the strongest terms of reprobation of
this nnmitigated little agricultural pest,
conclusively showing him to be the worst
foe the farmer and liuit-grower have to
contend with. What is to be the remedy
against the evil we know not; we can
only suggest ihat every one that is killed
lessens just so much the depredations of
an insatiate marauder, and that they can
bo destroyed in great numbers when feed
ing in the fields or flocking on the trees.
We follow with a few extracts from Dr.
"The lamentable disappearance of so
many species of native song and insectiv
orous birds from our cities, towns and
villages; the damage done to shade and
ornamental trees rbrubs, hedges and
vines; the shocki 'ifigurement ot pub
ic buildings and u, .vate dwellings; the
destruction in such great quantities of
garden fruits, vegetables and flowering
plants; the havoc wrought in orchards
and vineyards, on fields of growing and
matured grain; the robberies committed
on barns, store-bouses and granaries in
short the enormous losses sustained by
the farmers and horticulturists through
the agency of the European House Spar
row, commonly called the .bngliBb spar
row in this country have at length at
tracted sufficient attention to call for a
spt-cial, syptematic, and comprehensive in
vestigation of the distribution and habits
of this bird as now naturalized in North
Feeding fob Milk. When meal is
fed lo cows dry it is most often swallowed
without sufficient masticatiou and saliva
tion and is theu only partly digested,
being in part wasted in the manure. To
prevent this it is better to wet some fine
chali aud mix the meal with it. When
thus given the whole is thoroughly mas
ticated in the process of rumination, and
is then completely digested and none is
wasted. for this reason the common
practice of feeding meal with wet chaff
is the most effective and economical.
Bloody Milk. Bloody milk is one of
the conditions of the disease known as
garget. It is best to adhere to one medi
cine judiciously selected, and not give
such a variety as poke root, saltpetre,
salts, blackberry root tea, cooked beans,
and hyposulphate of soda. Some of these
are injurious. Give one pound of salts
and then one ounce of the hyposulphate
of soda daily. Bathe the udder with cold
water twice a day. I he hot weather or
bad weather might cause it.
