The Care of Barnyards.
A barn yard can and should be kept
aeat. The manure should be stacked in
the center, and the droppings in the
other part of the yard should be thrown
on this stack at least once a day. The
manure stack should be kept lowest in
the central part, and if the drainage of
the roof be occasionally turned on this,
all the better. This mass can be loaded
more easily into wagons, and will be
found of greater bulk and more strength
than if allowed to scatter. over the yard,
exposed to sun and rains. Just at this
time, when the ground is settling so that
manure can be moved to the fields, fortu
nate is the provident farmer who has
turned his manure pile twice, and now
bas it fine and reduced in bulk. It is in
condition to be at once appropriated as
plant food, and can be taken to the field
with half the labor required' had it not
been worked over. It can be spread
evenly on the wheat or meadow lands,
while the crude manure is thrown off in
chunks or forkfuls, to smother plants and
be a nuisance on the meadow or wheat
field. There is a class of farmers who
have a mania for making manure. Mak
ing manure for the sake of the manure is
a little like paying a dollar or two per
cord for it and hauling it several miles to
the farm. Hen. Perley Poore.
Does Manure Sink Into the Soil?
There are very few farmers says Good
Farming, but that are willing to concede
the point that the valuable portions of
manure are continually tending down
wards into the soil. This is especially
true in case of sandy or gravelly soils.
Dr. J. B. Lawes says that this is true of
nitrates, but other manures, phosphates
and potash unite with the soil near the
surface and either remain there, or, at all
events, descend very slowly. lie gives
us an instance of the extreme elownees of
the descent of- manure an application of
.fourteen tons per acre annually for forty
years to permanent wheat land, and that
is nearly all found in the first nine inches
below the surface. There may be soils
where this condition ot the same would
produoe such results, but it will require
further evidence to oonvince farmers that
even a considerable proportion of their
manure remains near the surface. They
believe it has a way of escape th&t is un
accountable. Musty Grain.
Musty grain, says the Milling World,
totally unfit for use and which can
soaroely be ground, may be rendered
sweet and sound by simply immersing in
boiling water and let it remain until the
water becomes oold The quantity of the
water must be double that of the grain to
be purified. The musty qualities rarely
penetrate through the husks of the wheat,
and in the worst cases it does not extend
through the part which lies immediately
under the skin. Io the hot water all the
decayed or rotten grains swim on the sur
face, so that they oan be removed and the
remaining wheat is effectually cleaned
from all impurities without any loss. It
' must be completely and thoroughly dried
The Buckwheat Crop.
' .Buckwheat is the latest grain crop of
the season. It is frequently sown as a
filling crop, that is, on ground where
some other crop has failed. It makes an
exoellenl cleansing crop on foul or rough
land, especially upon rich soil where it
makes a rank growth and smothers out
all other plants. Buckwheat is used to
some extent as a green manure to be
turned under for wheat or rye. The
buckwheat plant is a deep feeder, and has
the power of obtaining the food elements
when present only in small quantities in
vegetable matter, oan be brought up to a
good state of cultivation by first growing
buckwheat as a green manure crop, fol
lowed by clover which is afterwards
- Early Spring Chickens.
An experienced paultry raiser writes to
the New York: Examiner,5- that where
winter or very early spring chickens are
wanted, some cross of the Plymouth Rock
: fowls is desirable. No variety is so hardy
while young, and they grow ao rapidly as
soon to be out of danger from ordinary
oold. The older birds of this variety re
quire warm quarters, as their large bright
red combs are peculiarly liable to be
. frostbitten; but the young ohicks are al
ways healthy and require less attention

yard manure, and do away with Commer
At the New York State Dairy Conven
tion Mr Jessie Owen of Elmira, gave
some account of his method of dairying
and butter-making. He endeavors to
make as much butter in winter as possi
ble. In the fall be used to take all his
milk from the cellar and put it in a room
above ground, but be now neats tne cel
lar bv steam when necessary, and keeps
the milk there the year round. He main
tains the temperature of the cellar at oz
to 66 deg. for setting milk. The cellar is
so dry that be frequently gives it a wet
ting. It is in the basement of the dairy
house, and nothing else is kept there.
He bas a boiler with two-horse engine for
churning. He has his.cows in during the
tall as far as possible. He lays down a
bushel of corn and a bushel of oats in his
windmill. He puts a bushel of this with
a bushel of wheat bran, and feeds each
cow four quarts a day when in milk, also
feeding good hay. Id his largest barn in
cold weather the temperature never goes
below 45 deg. He uses spring water
which never freezes. In winter he waters
bis cattle only once a day. Of course, he
does not get quite as much milk in winter
as in summer. He does not think , the
quality of his winter butter is much dif
ferent from that made in summer. He
cuts his corn early and feeds that. He
gets more butter in November than in
any other month of the year. He has
only Jersey grade stock, and raises ten
calves a year, which are supposed to re
plenish his dairy. He feeds the calves
with skim milk for the first month, and
then begins to feed a little hay and grain.
He averages from 250 to 278 pounds of
butter a year from each cow.
Oats for Fodder.
The Elmira Husbandman reports a dis
cussion at a meeting ot the Farmer's Club
at that place, at which some interesting
statements were made on the subject of
raising oats for green and dry fodder.
The practice of a man in Massachusetts
was cited, who sowed outs after other
spring work was done, or after corn
planting. It was cut for soiling or for
winter fodder. Mr Owen of Elmira sowed
oats for a similar purpose two years ago.
and out ten large green loads on a piece
of ground that gave him but three loads
of corn fodder the previous season. Feed
ing it to cows, it increased the flow of
milk. He cuts the oats after heading
out, bit before the grain is completely
The inquiry was made if auy farmer
had successfully seeded to grass with oats.
Two members answered in tho affirma
tive, one of whom had given a good top-
dressing with manure, and to which his
success was attributed. Another had a
perfect catoh of grass with heavy oats,
but he used manure freely, first on the
surface before ploughing, and as much as
he could plough in, and again after plough
ing a second tree application. It is proper
to state that a good growth of young
grass with oats without a top-dressing of
manure is a rare occurrence, although
with a light sowing of oats, or with not
over a bushel to the acre, partial success
is often the result. In our own ex
perience, oats are very uncertain for seed
ing, barley and wheat better, and winter
rye the best of any accompanying grain
crop, while by sowing the grass seed
alone, on clean, well prepared soil, a gain
of half a year in advance is secured.

these by foraging. Hens must be in good

Vegetables are as much a necessity to

cannot keep healthy.

Care for Piles.
Piles are frequently preceded by a sense of
weight in the back loins and lower part of the
abdomen, causing the patient to suppose he has
some affection of the kidneys or neighboring
organs. At times, symptoms of indigestion are
present, flatulency, uneasiness of the stomach,
etc. A moisture like perspiration, producing a
very disagreeable itching, after getting warm, is
a common attendant. Blind, Bleeding and Itch
ing Piles yield at once to the application of Dr.
