If it were not for the countless tiiou

require the constant care and attention
of the poultry breeder to avert lnnaon.
the breeding of poultry would be acorn
paretively easy task, although it would
uen be less profitable, for the lary
breeders could raise and market almost
as many eggs and fowls as could thoso
who are able and willing to give the
birds that care and attention which they
bow must have to insnre-profii.
.Many ate the ways and means devisod
to circumvent these pasts of the ponl

they are persisted in, while others ut

sion of house and fowls alike, it is a
work of time and patience to dislodge
them entirely, and far more trouble than
to use measures at first to prevent them
coming, for prevention is far better and
far cheaper than cure in this caRO.
When the breeder can afford it it is a
Rood plan to have the poultry-house
lathed and plastered smoothly on the
inside, and then frequent applications
of whitewash will servo generally to
keep them from cominsf to stay, for the
smooth surface of the walls offers no
crevices for their lodgment. Such a
house, too, is warm and comfortable in
winter and cool in summer.
When the expense deters breeders
from adopting the above plan, it is a
good and cheap substitute to line the
entire side of the house with tarred
paper, which is manufactured especially
for building purposes, and can be had
and put on cheaply. This ehould be
treated to frequent coatings of tar,
whioh is very distasteful to vermin and
very healthy for the fowls.
As far as preventing tho appearance
of lice and mites, this tarred paper or
" felting" is ahead of anything else we
know of at present, whilo it has the
advantage of being cheap and readily
applied by any one. It gives a smooth
finish to the iutevior of the houses,
though many object to tho dark color
as well as to tho smell of the tar. lie
that as it may, its great usefulness
should overcome such trifling objections
to those of a practical turn of mind.
We would here remark that old and
foul nests and nesting boxes are regular
hot beds of lice nnd vermin, and no
careful breeder will permit such evi
dences of slothfulness and neglect to
find room about his premises, but will
condemn them to tho flames. Poultry

It is not my intention in this article to
point out any particular breeds of cattle
for the above purpose', but I shall leave
every one to judge what is best for his
own present or future circumstances.
We all know that certain cows excel in
that quality of milk which turns out the
finest cheese; others iu that which pro
duces superior butter; then their are
Bteers which fatten on the least food
and at the earliest as?o, yielding the
choicest of beef; or if kept on for the
yoke, making the most powerful and
active of working oxen. Specimens of
nativo cattlo as well as grades of what
is called tho "improved breeds" abound
on our continent from one end to the
other, which can be obtained at moder
ate prices to fulfill all requirements in a
highly profitable manner. Yet in order
to select the choicest-bf these, one must
we well aoquamtcu with animal struc
ture in general, and those points in par
ticular which indicate a great milking or
butter cow, a quick fattening steer, and
a good working ox.
If the farmer wishes to breed for
himself, then ho must obtain such fe
males as are adapted for this purpose,
and cross these with males from fami
lies excelling in the same qualities.
He may then count upon a majority of
tneir stoeK meeting ins expectations on
obtaining full growth. In order, how
ever, to insure this, particular attention
uiust be given to the feed of his ani
mals. This should not only be of a
paiataDio and nutritious quality, but
every one must have as much dailv as
it will eat up clem and thoroughly
digest. 11 ot gooct constitution, proper
ly sheltered and watered, there will bo
a rapid growth, and a profitable dairy,
beef and labor product follow. Some
are so unwise as to think if thev have a
good breed or selection of animals
that is enough, and they need pay little
attention to their food ; still, the latter
is just as important ns the former. If
only enough is given to keep a creature
in mere store order, small profit can be
realized from it, whilo if all is fed after
this which it can consume and will
digest, then the additional aliment turns
entirely to profit. From this an adage
may be drawn scant food and no gain;
abundant food, aud a great one.
In addition to the foregoing, it must
be reoollected that the manure from
animals thus extra kept is much richer
in elements of fertility than that dropped
from thoso less bountifully fed, and this
increased value is often sufficient to pay
for the labor bostjwed in taking care of
tne stock-. :i uen tuero is the great pleas
ure of beholding one's herd in prime
health and condition, and exhibiting to
ail mends caning to see the animals
composing it. There are cheap ele
mentary books published on the subject
ot cattle feeding, treating of the differ
ent varieties of food, their nutritive
values, and the rations required for the
uest production of milk, cheese, butter,
beef and work. Every farmer ought to
possess one or tliese, make himself per
feet master of the contents, and then fol
low its rules as his daily guide. The
result to him would be additional ecorto
my in the breeding, raising and keeping
of his cattle, and additional gain in the
products drawn from them. By careless
ness and ignorance in tne above matters.
millions of dollars annually are lost to
our farmers throughout the country.
Considering this, let us all, henceforth
seek for a reform. A. IS. Allen.
Increasing the Fertility oi I'aaturc-.
We make the following extraot from
a paper on this subject by J. B. Lanes,
of liothamsted, St. Albans, England :
If land has been impoverished by the
sale of hay, and hay is to be Fold, dung
is the cheapest manure to apply ; but if
land so impoverished is intended for
the future to produce milk, meat or
other animal products, potash is sure to
be wanting, and the best manure to ap
ply will be either 200 pounds of sul
phate or muriate of potash or three
times that quantity of kanit salts and,
in addition to whichever of these sub
stances is selected, 200 pounds of super
phosphate of lime and from sixty to
eighty pounds of nitrate of soda. If,
however,, the land has been impov
erished merely by feeding stock then
the exhaustion will be more likely due
to the absence of nitrogen and phos
phate, and fertility must be restored by i
an application' of these substances as
mannfe. T mentioned in a previous
part of my paper that quantity rather
than quality was the object to be attained
whon hay wa4 the crop grown 5 but
when ianimal . products are produced
from grass the quality of the grass is of
Very great importance; " - J .
Quality of pasture is dependent Upon
the food in the soil. In land under
grass there is a constant struggle going
on between the various plants which
constitute what wo call a pasture. Upon
my experimental ground the pasture
contained about fifty different species
of plants when the experiments were
commenced, and upon the unmanured
ground these have been subject to but
littlo change; but it is far otherwise
upon the variously manured portions.
If the food is abundant acd good, the
good grasses drive away all the weeds
and bad grasses, and the ultimate re
sult is a very simple herbage, consist
ing of not more than from fifteen to
eighteen of the best species. The con
stant mowing, although It enables ns
to establish a great doal of valuable in
formation respecting growth, is, at the
same time, most destructive to the finer
sorts of herbage; it cannot be expected,
for instance, that much white clover
will be found among grasses standing
three feet high and yielding 7,000
pounds of hay to the acre; with liberal
manuring, therefore, thtre must be
close feeding, and tho coarse but highly
nutritious cocksfoot and foxtail must
not be allowed to smother the clover
and trefoil.
Having once started a permanent
pasture by means of a Judicious mixture
of artificial manures the question arises
whether it is more economical to keep
up the fertility by a fresh application
of artificial manures or by the manure
obtained by feeding stock upon the
land with food grown in other locali
ties. It is not easy to decide this point.
I am myself incliued to think that the
Intter prooess is the most economi
cal, aud in the conversion of arable,
into pasture land upon which opera
tion I havo been engaged for ten years
1 Lave trusted to the fertilizing prop
erties of the manure from cotton cake
to enable me to accumulate the stock of
fertility which, being exhausted by
ages of arablo culture, had to be re
placed before tho land could again be
come a pasture. When hay, which is
the produce of arablo land, is grown for
sale, it is by no means certain that the
increase, obtained by the application of
artificial manures, would repay the cost
of the operatiou.
Nitrate of soda at the rate of 100
pounds per acre, applied iu tho spring
about a month before the crop began to
grow actively, would probably give a
considerable increase to a crop of tim
othy, but I cannot venture to give an
opinion as to what would bo "the pe
cuniary result of the transaction. Sun
light is cheaper than all artificial
sources of light, and natural fertility
is cheaper than any artificial compound.
Iu the absence of sunlight we have re
course to purchased light, and as the
natural fertility is exhausted from our
soils wo are driven to use fertility de
rived from other sources. It is the ob
ject of science to investigate and explain
tho laws which regulate the growth of
plants rather than to enter upon tho
question of economy. In tho present
paper I have endeavored to unite to a
certain extent science with practice, in
the hope that the farmers of the United
Stutes who take the trouble to road
what I have Baid may add something
to their present stock of knowledge.

It was not till we had traveled to the
north of India, and had penetrated far
into the mighty mountain ranges of the
Himalayas, approaching tho borders of
Chinese Tartary, says a writer in Scrib
tier, that we observed men twirling lit
tlo brass cylinders as they climbed tho
narrow, precipitous trades by which we
wound along tlinse dizzy heights. What
theco tojs were, we could not at first
make out, till it was explained to us
that the cylinders not only had sacred
words embossed on the outsido, but
that tho same mystic sentence was writ
ten again and egain, perhaps many
thousands of times, on strips of.cloth
or paper, which were wound around a
spindk, the end of which formed the
handle of the little machine. From
the center haugs a small lump of metal,
which whirls around aud gives the
necessary impetus, so that the little
prayer-mill twirls with the slightest ex.
ertion, und goes on grinding any given
number of meritorious acts of homage
to Buddha, a tiny bell marking each
revolution, to remind the worshiper
if ho is unconsciously turning too fast.
Of course, his mind ought to be all the
time absorbed in meditation on the in
finite perfections of Buddha, but as too
much must not be expected from a busy
workingman, it suffices if he repeat
aloud at the beginning and end of his
devotions, and between whiles continue
to twirl slowly.

While the workmen were laying the

small boy named Willie Scott asked oce
of the laborers to " please let him drive
one spike into that rail." The brawny
man comprehended the little lad's de
sire and immediately handed him the
hammer, saying : "I'm afraid, my little
boy, it's rather a heavy job for you ; but
go ahead and try." The little lad
grasped the hammer shortly, and when
the laborer had placed the spiko for
him he began his work. It took many
hard blows from his little arm, but with
the assistance of the laborer, who struck
every alternate blow, the spike was
finally driven homo, and the little fel
ow came over to his father with a proud,

Th( Fecdln? of Infanta. '
Diet for flrgt three months. " What
the right food for a young infant f The
only aner j mik. Nature tells ts
so, and cLemMry attd physiology ex;
plain how u enpblkd all the eletnfehts
of nourishment the human body heeds.
Milk is got from various sources, bni
mother's milk is to be infinitely pre
ferred for a young babe to all other
kinds, and provided that the mother is
moderately strong it should be the only
food given until the first teeth are be
ing cut, or until the infant is at least
three or four months old. . For the first
month the infant should be put to the
breast every two hours, and after this
the interval should be inoreased by a
quarter of an hour every week, until at
length he has it about every four hours.
It is important that the baby be fed
regularly, and the habit of some moth
ers giving him Ihe bosom every time he
cries cannot be too strongly condemned.
He cries, not because he is hungry, but
because he is in pain; his stomach has
been overloaded; and to soothe his suf
fering by offering him the breast is as
absurd as trying to extinguish a fire by
pouring oil upon it. A better plan is to
let him go without a meal, put him into
ft warm bath, and give hip a little cold
water if thirsty. -
Diet for a Iwby from three to six
months old. When the Infant is three
or foul- months old. and occasionally
before then, artificial food may be
necessary. If a good wet-burse Cannot
bA found, cow's milk, condensed milk,
goal's milk, ass's milk, etc., are given;
but as the two first are more easily ob
tained, they are mostly employed.
Cow's milk should be pure and fresh,
and taken from one cow, if possible.
Mixed with sugar and water and a pinch
of salt, and given through a clean
feeding-bottle, it is a valuable addition
to the mother's milk. It should be pre
pared thus: Dissolve a lump ot two of
white sugat and a small pinoh of suit
iu a pint of warm water, and add to this
a pint of fresh, unboiled milk. This
food is to be-given night and morning,
but not oftener when the baby is be
ing suckled as well. If the above food
disagrees, as it sometimes Will, omit
the sugar or change the proportions to
two parts of water and one of milk. If
the milk purgo violently or cause offen
sive motions, boil it or put one or two
tablespoonfuls of limewater into each
bottle of food. In the case of delicate
infants, if you can get it, add a table
Rpoonful of cream to each pint of milk.
When good cow's milk cannot be ob
tained, condensed milk becomes a valu
able substitute.
Diet for a baby over six months.
Whon the infant is six or seven months
old farinaceous food may be given;
that is when he begins to cut his teeth,
for until that period it isunadvisable to
give him any farinaceous food. It will
only prove injurious, because, as Dr.
W. Roberts shows, the fermeut in tho
salivia or spittle, which digests starchy
matters euectively, does not exist in
sufficient quantity'until the infant is tlx
or seven months old.
The following are useful foods, any
one of which tho mother can Eafely
adopt :
1. Boil the crumb of bread two hours
in water, taking care it does not burn :
then add a lamp of sugar, a piuch of
alt, and pour a little new milk on it
while boiling hot. 2. Cut thin slices
of bread into a basin, cover the bread
with cold water, place in nn oven to
bake ; when sufficiently baked take it
out, beat tlie bread up with a fork,
slightly sweeten and pour on milk. 3.
Baked flour. Bake some biscuit flour
in a slow oven until it is of a light
lawn color; reduce it with a rolling
pin to a fine powder, and keep it in a
tin ready for uso. Two tablespoonfuls
to half a pint of milk boiled and sweet
ened. 4. Boil a teanpoonful of pow
dered barley (ground in a coffee mill)
with a little salt iu half a pint of water
for fifteen minutes ; strain, mix- with
half as much boiled milk, and add a
lump of sugar. 5. Scotch oatmeal.
Prepare in the samo way as flour. This
food is especially useful for regulating
the bowels when they have a tendency
to become constipated. 0. Uocoa ee
etnee, cocoa powder or cocoa nibs. Dis
solve a teaspoonful of cither of tho two
tirst in half a pint of toiling milk and
water (equal parts!; of the nibs take
cno ounce, and boil it iu a pint and a
half of wator for five hours, strain and
add new milk and sugar. Cocoa makes
an excellent food for thin and wasted
infants, who take it greedily, and soon
improve in liealtn.
These foods are to be given lukewarm
through a nursing bottle, which, with
the mouthpiece, should be kept in a
bowl of water when not in uso. In hot
weather te-t the food with a small strip
01 bluo litmus paper, wliieli can be ob
tained at any chemist's shop. If the
bluo paper turns red, either make a
fresh mess, or add a small pinch of
baiang soda to the food.
Diet for an infant over a year old.
When the child is fifteen to eighteen
mouths old, broths, tho yolk of egg.
bread and gravy, or well-mashed potato
aud gravy, may bo given onco a day. If
allowed much sooner they are likely to
cause flatulence and sickness, and even
griping and diairhea. When he is two
years old small pieces of meat cut fine
may be introduced in Ms diet.
Weaning: When the baby is nine or
ten months old he ought to bo weaned.
The way the mother can do this is by
gradually giving him moro artificial
food, and lets and less of the breast, nn
til at length he has it only at night,
aud finally not at all. If tho mother's
presence cause him to cry for it, she
should sleep iu another room, or go
irom home for a few days. N here the
i ifant is delicate, weaning may be post
poned till he is twelve months old, but
to suckle him beyond that period is in
jurious uom to motner ana cniia.

"So better winedy in the whole materia medlea hat
yet beeu comixnindcd for the relief and cure oi
Ftimile Cornpliniid, of the ordinary kind, than
Vkgkt(NK. It hoc ma to act in thene caseawith un
wonted certainty, and never faiht to Rive a new and
healthful tone to tho female oiyan, to remove re
laxed d'-bflity and unhealthy Becrutiona, and restore
a healthful vior and elasticity. One of tho most
common of thcao complaiutH is Leacorrhoea or
Whiten, which are brought on either by the presence
of Scrofula in the 8stero, or by Home affection of the
womb, or even by general debility. For all thee
complaint a, aud when danger begins to threaten
woman at tho turn of life, Veoetih can bo cora
luemlcd without qualification. The great prevalence
of thoso dfHorden, and their cure by Vkuetine, has
amply shown that the sure alleviating ageut remains
not yet to bo discovered, but ia already known, and
is a favorite with American ladies. Too long baa it
been tho custom to prescribe nauseating and unccr
tuiu remedies iu plaoe of what is pleasant, etlicacioiis
aud cheap. Try VaaBTTKE, and do not doubt Its Kwei
to carry you safely through danger aud diaease.
