most experienced farmers, gardeners and
fruit growers in the United States.]
TH> CODLING MOTH.
The codling moth, or apple worm,
destroys a great deal of fruit in many
orchards. In some States it is esti
mated that one-third of the apple crop
is destroyed. There has been no
plete remedy for the depredations of
this insect. Some farmers whose
orchards are extensive have adopted the
nlan of turning their hogs into their
orchards, when worm-eaten fruit begins
to fall freely ; and others keep a large
drove of swine in their orohards all
summer. They devour the fallen ap
ples, and the worms in them. This
lessens their numbers
wormy apples than'the hogs
oan eat, sometimes a flock of Bheep are
turned in for a day or two at a time to
eat the apples. In orohards that
not very extensive, the fallen apples
may be picked up daily, and when
h have been gathered to make a
arrels of cider, it is made, and
. vinegar is made of it If bands of
coarse paper, or made of hay ropes, be
placed around the trunks of the trees,
two or three feet from the ground, the
that leave the applet will go
under these to form their cocoons, or
to "hind up," as it is called, and many
be destroyed by removing the bands
once in ten dsys. Some persons claim
that this is the only remedy that need
be practiced.

SCIENCE IN FARMING.
The word ' 'science" in farming is not
a popular expression among the masses
of our farmers, because hundreds of
theoretical writers,after having obtained
a little knowledge of agricultural chem
istry, have thought that they were able
in a faw articles to revolutionize our
system of farming. Some 25 years ago
it was stoutly contended by these hum
bug teachers of "scientific agriculture,"
that every farmer should have the soils
of his different fields analysed, so ss to
know what particular fertiliser to apply.
These chemists felt a wonderful interest
in the subject ; and offered to analize a
gill of earth, and give "a letter of ad
vice" for $20 ! Then the world was
excited over what Prof. Liebig, the
great German agricultural chemist
elaimed to have discovered—which was,
in brief, that every erop grown required
* a special fertilizer ; and to ascertain
what this fertilizer should be, take the
dry straw, stalks &c., of a crop to an
agricultural chemist to be burned, and
tbeir ashes when analised would show
. from their chemical constituents just
wbst kind of a commercial fertilizer
each crop should receive.
I was going tossy, that*the true science
of farming lies in being well read, and
thoroughly "posted" on practical agri
culture in all its ramifications. No
man oan folly understand hia business,
in these progressive times, without
reading at least one good agricultural
paper. He will, of oourse, find much
in such a paper that is of no value ;
but in the end it will pay to read such
a publication, by discarding the chaff
and storing up the wheat against the
day to bring it into use.
bon't omit the turnips.
Turnips are a profitable crop, if
grown on rich land. Five hundred
bushels to the acre are often grown at
a cost of about $15, including gather
ing and putting them in a cellar, root
house, Or burying them, making the
cost only three cents a bushel. Some
varieties may be aown in July, the flat
variety in. particular, which is frequent
ly sown among corn, immediately after
the last hoeing. Care should be taken
not to sow the seed too thick, as thin
ning out is not generally practiced when
grown in this way ; nor is any weed
ing done. Tljis is decidedly the cheapest
way that a crop of turnips can be grown.
Cover the seed by a brush drag drawn
between the rows of corn. Some farm
ers object .to growing turnips to feed
to cows, on account of giving the milk
an unpleasant flavor ; but this is obviated
by feeding the turnips, either when
ilkiag in the morning, oV immedi
ately after milking, and no bad flavor is
imparted to the evening's milk.
To be brief,
ra
A HOOT CKLIiAR OB HOUSE.
In building a barn a good large root
cellar should be built under it. But
where no such cellar exists, one can be
made at a small cost. Suppose your
barn is near a hill facing the East or
the South It would be very easy to
dig out a cellar on the side of the hill,
walling it up, and placing some timbers
across the top, upon which place cheap
two inch pine, chestnut, or other dur
able planks to support the earth roof —
The door should be thick, and made to
shut very tight ; and then no frost
would enter, such a cellar, uoless in a
very cold climate, where two doors
would be necessary. If no such side
hill exists hear your barn a root house
can be built on, level ground. If you
cab dig down two hr three feet, and can
drain the house by laying drain pipe so
much the better. In this case you go
down say two feet, lay your walls and
bank four'feet outside all around ex
cepting where the door is io go. Put
a double pitch roof on it, shingled, and
across the plates lay joists to support a
floor. In tbe gable end, over the door,
a small door should be made to admit
hay or straw to fill tbe space well
packed. The bank around the build
ing should be sodded up in the spring ;
and you will have a root cellar, frost
of, and not uusightly. Such a cel
should bo made in summer after
haying, as you can spare time.

DITCHING LANDS.
There are but very fetv farms where
ditching is required, and it must be
done iu dry weather. Let your crops
be attended to so that in August you
can put men to ditching where it is
needed. Many a swamp can be made
to be aB good aa any laud ou the farm,
by draining them inajudioious man
ner, and every man must be the judge
of how deep and bow far apart the
ditches should be made, according to
the quantity of water to be carried off
and tbe fall.

The Bridal Chamber. —He was tall
and awkward, and she was short rad
bashful, but both wore a nervous aspect
of exceeding great joy. They entered
a betel in Chicago, and after he had
registered his name "and lady," he said
to the clerk :
"See here, mister, me and my wife
have just been spliced, and I am goiDg
to show Amanda Chicago, if it takes a
mule a day. Now give us one of them
rooms like the Temple of Solomon, you
know.
The clerk called a row-boy, and said,
"Show this gentleman to the bridal
obamber."
At this direction the tall rustio be
came instantly excited.
"Not by a darned sight! Ye shiny
haired, bile-shirted, dollar-breast-pinn

Walking Off the Edge.-Au Amer
ican, who went over to tbe mother
country some time ago, was asked, on
goiDg back, how he liked great Britain.
"Well," he said, "England was a very
nice country, exceedingly fertile, well
cultivated, very populous, and very
wealthy; but," said tbe American, "I
never liked to take a morning walk after
breakfast, because the country is so
«pall that I was always afraid of walk
»
ing off the edge.
"And you think, darling, you could
be ooDtent to share my humble lot, and
live in a quiet way with love and me ?'
queried the blisiful lover, as he looked
fondly into her translucent blue eyes.
"Why, yes, precious; you have no
idea how ecouomioal I am. Pa gave
me one hundred dollar^ last week to
buy » new silk, and I saved enough out
of it to puiohase four pairs of six-but
tonod kids.'
A beggar recently applied for alms at
the door of a partisan of the Anti
Mendicity Sooiety of Edinburgh.- After
vaiBly detailing his manifold sorrows,
be was peremptorily dismissed by the
inexorable gentleman. "Go away,"
said he; "we canna gie ye naathiug "
"You might, at least," returned the
mendicant, with an air of great dignity
and archness, "bave refused me gram
matically."
A new reading—A man who was
reprimanded by a divioe for swearing,
replied that he did not aee auyhartn in
it. "No harm iu it,' said the minister,
"why don't you know the command
ments. 'Swiar not at all?" "I do
not swear at all,' said tbe man, "I only
swear at those who annoy me.'
The laziest man is on a Western
paper. He spells photograph "'Do
graph.' There have only been three
worse than he. Ooe lived in Kansas,
and dated his letters "llworth,' another
spelled Tennessee ''lOaC,' and the
other wrote Wyandotte ''Y&.'
A captain caught a boy in the middle
watch frying some pork and eggs he
had stolen from the ship's stores, to
whom the captain called out; ''You
lubber, you ! I'll bave none of that !'
"Faith, captain, I've none for ye,' re
plied the lad.
A man with a large family was com
plaining of tbe difficulty of supporting
all of them. "But,' said a friend, "you
have sons big enough to earn something. '
"The difficulty is,' said the man, "they
are too big to work.'
A greenhorn arriving in town, on a
first visit, heard a boy calling "Oys
ters," and asked: "What's that?" "O,
only oysters," said his friend "Great
stars!' exclaimed the verdant one, "do
oysters bowl like that ?'
