American Insiituir Farmers 1 Club.
A Ladv-Kakmer I sks Wood-Ashes. :
Mrs. 11. K. GWpin, Oswego, \. y. : |
have derived frei|iit'iil aid and much inlbr- I
inalion which Ims greatly assisted me in ;
carrying ** n "tnall farm font- miles Oram
this village. When I . nine in possession of ;
it, five years airo, the gnm on the best
meadows ad not tvrenge more than in
inches in height, and yielded about one-half
ton to the acre, and was red in having time j
with sorrel, for which I sowed hard wood
ashes, one liurrel to the acre, all 1 could j
obtain, and the next year the same rate in ;
other fields, anil so on each year; anil nmv
there is not a blade of sorit-1 to be seen,
and my meadows average three tons to the
acre and some yield jnore than lour. I
have half an acre in vegetable garden, i
and for the last 10years have had no trouble
with club-foot cabbage. My seed beet is lib
erally mixed with hard-wood ,-islu-s, and the
plants which show signs of club-foot after
being set out, receive a sufficient quantity
of white lye to thoroughly wet the roof,
which kills the worms and makes the plant
thrive. The Ive also kills the worms at the
root of squash vines. One ytear 1 lost
nearly all my vines by these worms, ami
after trying various remedies which did no
good, the lye saved the vines, ami they
yielded abundantly. The cabbage which
nave worms in the tool can easily be dis
tinguished when the sun is hoi .and the
ground dry; they look wilted.
Cheese Making on Small Farms.— j
Mrs. 8. Hasting, Flemiiigtoii; X. ,J., says
she was one of eleven children, all raised to j
middle life by her mothet, the wife of a j
country preacher, who never received over
$-100, and generally not over 1800 per year i
as salary. She matle excellent cheese every
Summer, and this was her process: She,
took the stomach of a calf, say about five '
or six weeks old, filled it with salt and fas- I
lened it together; this was done in the j
Spring; the cheese season was not till July,
when the weather was too warm for butter. j
When she wished to make cheese she took j
this rennet, took out the salt, audit put into
a pint of new milk; she strained the milk
for cheese at night uite tin pans Or pails;
in the morning she heated the night's milk
to the warmth of the morning's milk, and
added the milk from the rennet and let it '
stand till it became a thick curd ; then cut- :
ting it through with a- long knife, the
curd would separate from the whey ; then
spread a linen strainer over the top, dip all
the whey olf into a clean brass kettle, heat I
it to a boiling point ami turn it back through
the strainer into the curd ; let it stand lill it
is cold ; have ready a dry cloth and mold
for your cheese ; spread the cloth over a j
cheese-basket, anil flip your curd into the j
basket; let it drain two hours ; put it into !
the cheese mold, or hoop; nave a round
board that will go easily into a hoop, and, !
after making it all as smoothly as possible i
in the hoop, put on the board, with the i
cloth between it and the cheese, and put it |
in the press. Press it sufficiently hard, so I
that when it is taken from the mold ii will
retain its shape, lv three hours change it j
into a dry cloth, and let it stay in the press J
overnight. In the morning cover it with j
thin cloth to exactly lit the cheese, a j
straight band, with two round pieces the [
size of the cheese. Grease this twice a day
with fresh butter. Don't forget to salt the '
cheese before pressing it ; the quantity of
salt according to the size of the cheese. A
smart farmer's wife can tell by the taste of j
the curd, and any one that cannot tell by ;
the taste had better not try, for she will
spoil the cheese.
.Mr. Kly—This is valuable matter, anil |
will be of service to Margaret Russell, of I
llarrisonville, Mo., and other correspond
ents who have asked advice.

Oeorge O. Bacon. Candor, N. V.: What
corn M best for soiling? 11. 1,. Heinle—.l
Sweet corn in drills, two feet or thirty I
inches apart.
Philips' Corn HUskeb.—A commit- ■
tee, consisting of Messrs. Baldwin, Lyman
and Crane, having visited the machine on
exhibition at No, 89 Oortlandt street, re- j
ported that it husks rapidly and clean, and
seems made in such a way as to be durable, j
Two spirally cut rollers, about four inches
through, revolve inwardly upon eace other;
one of.tliem is armed with short iron pegs i
or teeth, which catch the husk and tear
them off. When the corn is moist in the j
fall, none of the kernels are shattered off.
If dry corn were run through some of it j
would be shelled.. The machine picks liie
ears from the stalk and throws them in one
pile, then strips the husks and drops them !
in a separate pile, and delivers the husked
corn behind. Its rate of work is a bushel
a minute. The large size, to be worked by
horse-power, costs sslOO ; a small size, for
husking by man-power, after lhe corn is
picked from the stalk, can be sold for 030
or less.

Sh_9_>.—The sltearer may place the sheep
on that "part of (he floor assigned to him,
resting on its rump, and himself in a pos
ture with his right knee on a eiisjiion, and
the back of the animal resting against his
left thigh. He grasps the shears about
half-way from the point to the how, routing
his thumb along the blades, which gives
him better command of the points, lie
may then commence cutting the wool at the
brisket, and, proceeding downward, all upon
the sides of the belly to the extremity ofthe
ribs, the external sides of both side's to the
edges ofthe Hanks, then back to the brisket
and thence upward, shearing the woo! from
the breast, front, and both sides of the neck,
but not yet the back of it, and also the poll,
or forepart, and top of the head. Then
"the jacket is opened," anil its position,
as well as- that ofthe shearer, is changed by
the animal's being turned fiat upon its side,
one knee of the shearer resting on the cush
ion, the other gently pressing the fore-quar
ter ofthe animal, to prevent any struggling.
He then resumes Butting upon the Hank anil
rump, and thence onward to the head. The
'heep is then turned on the Other side-in
doing which gnat care is requisite to pre
vent the fleeces being torn ; and the shearer
proceeds as upon the other, lie must then
lake the sheep near to the door through
which it is to pa.-s out, and neatly trim the
lens, leaving nof a solitary lock anywhere
•is a lodging place, for licks. His absolute
ly necessary for him to remove from his
stand to trim, otherwise the useless stuff
from the legs becomes intermingled'with
the fleece-wool. In the use of the shears
the blades should be laid as flat to the skin
fi- possible; the points not lowered too
much, nor should more Hunt from one to
two inches to be cut at a clip, and frequent
ly not so much, depending on the compact
ness ofthe wool.— Amerii-an Stock Journal.

It is evident io all intellipcnt minds that lhe \
I time has come wheu those enpapetl in rural pur- j
i suits .-hould have an orpaui/alion devoted entirely i
; t(» their interests. Such it to intended to make tie
Order of Patron*. It was instituted in lSt>7; its j
: prow ih is unprecedented in the history ot secret j
j associations, and it is acknowledged one of the
mosi useful and powerful orpanizations iv the !
'■ luited Stales, li.s prand objects are not only
general improvement In husbandry, but io in- i
t crease the peueraly happiness, wealth, and pros
peiity of tlie country. It is founded upon the
I axioms that the products of the soil compri.se the
, basis of all wealth ; that individual happiness de
i pends upon general prosperity, and that the
i wealth ola country depends iq>on the general in
| tellipence and mental culture of the producing
: glasses.
In the meetings of this Order all but member!*
are excluded, and there is in its proceedings a
S symbolized ritual, pleasing, beautiful, and appro-
I priate, which is designed not only to charm the
\ fancy, but to cultivate and enlarpe ihe mind and
\ purify the heart, having at lhe same lime, strict
i adaptation to rural pursuits.
1 The secrecy of the ritual and proceedings of
! the Order have been adopted chiefly for the par
\ pose of accomplishinp desired eiliciency, exlen
j sion, and unity, and to secure amonp ils mem-
I bers. in the internal workmp of the Order, conli
, dence, harmony, and security.
Women are admitted to full membership, and
i sve solicit the co-operation of women becatt.se of
a conviction that without her aid success will lie
I less certain and decided. Much might be said in
! this connection, hut every husband and brother
! knows that where he can be aceompauied by his
i wife or sister uo lessons will hi'learned hut those
|of purity and truih.
The Order of the Patron.-* of 'Husbandry will
; accomplish a thorough systematic organisation
among Farmers and Horticnlturists throughout
I the rutted States, and will secure amonp them
j iuiimate social relations and acquaintance with
each other, for the advancement and elevation of
j their pur.suhs, with an appreciation andprotec
[ tion of their true interests, Hy such means may
!be accomplished that which exists ihrouphout
: the country in all other avocations and amonp
all other classes—combined co-operative associa- j
tion for individual improvement and common
Among the advantages which may be derived
j from the Order are systematic arrangements for
j procminp and dissendnatinp, iv the most expedi
tious manner, information relative to crops, de
mand and supply, juices, markets, and transpor
tation throuphout the country; also for the pur
chase and exchanpe of slock, seeds, and desired ■
varieties of plants and trees, and for the purpose I
Of procuring help at home or from abroad, and
siiiiulions for persons seekiup employment; also |
tor ascertaining and testing the merits of newly- ;
I invented farininp implements and those not in j
■ general use, and for detecting and exirasing those ■
! ihat are unworthy, and for protecting, by all
i available mean--, the farminp interests Irom fraud ;
| and deception, and combinations «f every kind.
We ignore all political or religious discossioits
in the Order; we do not solicit the patronage of I
* any sect, association or individual, upon any j
grounds whatever except upon the intrinsic merit i
of the Order.
The belter to secure greater benefits to our ;
members, v\e desire to establish Oranpes in
every city, town, and village in the United States, j
Information relative to orpanizinp may be ob
