Prepare for Winter. —The calen
dar and the cool nights, says the West
ern Farm Journal, point to approach
ing cold weather ; and whatever leisure
time oceurs between now and oorn
gathering time, should be'made availa
ble in preparing for winter. Whatever
of threshing is yet to be located with a
view of famishing shelter for such
stocks as are forced to remain out dur
ing the winter. The shelter of timber,
and the shelter of the straw rick com
bined, are of inestimable value, and the
two should be combined, if there is
timber, natural or artificial, upon the
Wbero the stock is not numerous, tbs
plan of building a strong frame-work of
crutches and poles, adequate to sustain
ing a portion of the straw rick, thus
affording shelter for cattle beneath, is a
most excellent one, and affords the
cheapest really good shelter that can be
Now is an excellent time to out ooarse
slough grass for covering, and no man
who has stock to winter, and has no
stabling already on his farm, can
himself on the score of inability to
build stable room, because it is mainly
a question of labor, and not of hard
labor—nor is a large amount of this
. quired. In the absence of a perma
nent building for the shelter of horses
and oattle, and the storage of hay and
other feed, the usual upright posta,
eight feet above the ground, set firmly,
enclosed with rough lumber lapped or
battened, the whole covered with slough
grass, spread upon rafters and oross
ribs suitably placed, will afford stable
room, with proper fixtures inside, well
adapted to horses or cattle, or both, and
cheaply made, as to furnish no ex
_ to any one for allowing his farm
beasts to pass the winter nights without
protection. It may reasonably be ex
pected that the coming winter will be
none other than a cold one, and while
a dry, cold winter is preferable in some
respects, to such an open winter as the
last, still, excessive, cold keeps the sys
tem upon the strain, and it is infinitely
cheaper, and humane, to save animal
heat through the means of warm shel
ter than to furnish this from the crib.
Fall Planting .-Fruit-bearing trees,
ahrubs, vinea and brambles may be
transplanted in the fall, and very often
under more favorable conditions, and
with better prospects of success, than
if set oat in the spring. There are some
well known objeotioas raised against
fall planting, especially fruit trees, such
the long exposure to the swaying of
the winds before growth commences.
But the injury or displacement of the
roots from swaying at the tops amounts
to little compared to the many striking
advantages gained in planting at a
season of the year when there ia com
parative leisure, when the ground ia
usually dry and in good condition, and
when the necessary preparatory stirring
.of the soil can be made without any
extra expense. Theas ara points that
tell in the growth and prodnotivenesa
of fruit trees, either in the garden or
the orchard. If planted in the fall, the
soil aettlea closely around the root! and
fibres by the time the spring opens, and
earlier growth is started than with
the spring setting, which is offten
pushed back until the season ia well
advanced, from causes over which the
planter has no control. The spring
may be backward enough to hinder
planting .of trees in a way in which
they should be set out to insure euc
All other things being equal,
there is no doubt that spring would he
tbs better time to plant trees. But this
does not often happen to be the ease,
as every practical fruit-grower well
knows. It is therefore wise to trans
plant in the fail if the trees and the
ground are in readiness.— P. T. Quinn
in Scribner for October.
Composting in Fall and Winter.—
Change the ordinary plan of pitohing
your stable manure promiscuously out
of door* ia what the Canada Farmer
urges. Give the composting and shel
tering method at least one fair trial
daring the coming fall and winter, and
yon will be surprised at the result.
Have you a vaeant shed or outhouse on
the premises? If so, use it for the
pnrpose of storage ; if not, ereot some
thing of the kind, however cheap and
temporary. A common board or slab
roof, resting upon bare posts, is better
tban no shelter at all. Early in the
fall, before you begin housing your
cattle, cart a few loads of good dry loam
or muck into some place convenient
and handy to your stables. If muck
cannot be got, use any other absorbent ;
straw, leaves, even sawdust, sooner
than nothing. Lay a wheelbarrow load
or two of this absorbent every day in
the trenches behind your cows and
ho r ses, and, in cleaning out you r sta
bles, night and. morning, wheel earth
and all oat under the storing shed.
Continue this during the winter, sprin
kling the heap occasionally with plaster
of Paris to retain its ammonia, and in
the spring you will have ready for your
fields a fertilising material worth fifty
per cent, more than the best barnyard
.manure. When straw alone is used as
an absorbent—and no douht it is most
extensively employed—just take the
trouble of running it through the cutter
beforehand, and you will thus not only
lessen the difficulty of subsequent hand
ling, but materially aid in its incorpo
ration with the animal waste. In ap
plying this oompost to the fields, it is
'to be treated in the ordinary way, that
is, spread broadcast over the surface
and plowed under, if on the green
•ward ; or thoronghly harrowed in, if
on the inverted sod. The principal gain
effected by composting is the preserva
tion of the liquid excrements, which by
the usual method are almost, if not
altogether, lost ; and when both soienoe
and experience alike prove these to be
of more enriching value than the solid,
surely it is to the farmer's interest to
do all he can to conserve them and enjoy
the profits accruing from their applica
