away in a dry place-giving particular
attention to the saving of choice'sorts for
the next year's seed. Grass, such ai
" Crowfoot," "Crab,'' (or '-Crop,5') etc..
must be cut when in full bloom, and
cured with as little exposure to the sui]
as possible. The old uegro style, o!

up a lot of dead, dry, sapless grass, and
c.dling that " hay," must be stopped, li

Tue corn und forage crops will bc sc
short in all the States cast of the Missis
sippi that every provision possible should
ba made for economizing them.
Turnips will prove most valuable fbi
feeding stock of ail kinds. Milch cows
sheep, (and it is said horses, if fed it:
moderate quantities with other food.) al]
thrive upon them. Boiled and the slop
thickened while hot with corn meal they
are excellent for swine. Sow this crop
during this month, at all favorable seasons,
and it will be advisable to put in a large
crop for stock feeding in winter, it is,
generally, best to sow just before a rain,
or when the ground is dry, working thc
ground thoroughly and not sowing until
it has been allowed to dry, for if sowed
in soil just moist -enough to sprout the
seed the sun often kills it, but in perfectly
dry ground the seed will keep without
sprouting un?l it rains-covering the
seed lightly and pressing the -earth upon
it with a roller or plank. We almost in
variably sow too much seed, and cover
too deep ; but whenever, from any cause,
we fail to get a good ?nd satisfactory
"stand," the seedsman (or vendor of seed)
has to "suffer." Jt is not necessary to
drop a continuous line of turnip seed in
the drill, especially when the more valu
able varieties are rare and diflicult to
procure. Two or three seeds, dropped
every four (4) inches in the drill, will
give you a good " stand," and save a
great deal of seed and thinning out.
Rye for winter pasture, must be sown
very largely, the middle or last of this
month. You cannot make the ground
too deep Or rich ; and the same may he
said even more forcibly of Barley, which
on strong, rich soils, is superior to rye.
Sow early, use plenty of seed, and put in
as great a breadth of land as possible, in
these two crops. On lcose sandy soils
rye may be scattered among the notion
the latter part of the month, and the win
ter treading of stock which on heavy
soils is injurious, is a benefit to these light
lands, but on the richer soils more food is
Sow-plenty of the Winter or Egyptian
Oats the last of the month for pasturage.
lu ordinary winters these three crops
afford an invaluable aid in keeping stock
in good condition.
Procure now, seed of the Red Clover
to sow either by itself or in your wheat
the last of this month. Any clean soil
that will bring good wheat will bring good
clover, but the crop is vastly increased by
sowing'?pon it broad cast one bushel of
gypsum per acre ; auy seedsman can sup
ply seed, and we prefer our readers should
get it direct.
To START A BA ULKT HORSE.-Fill his
mouth "with dirt or gravel/rom the road,
and he7*!; go. Now, don't laugh at this,
but try- it The plain philosophy of the
thing is; it gives him something eh''to
think of., We haye seen it tried a hun?
dred times,, and it has never failed.
To put buttons on the horns of cattle,
lace a-large-sized baked potato on the
orn when hot, and in a few moments it
may be taken off' and the button sere .-d j
on with a common wrench.
A correspondent says : Washing the
head with cold black tea once or twice a
week will keep the hair from falling oft",
prevent its growiilg gray, and give it a
fine, lively lustre.
SPREADING MANURE IN TII? FALL.-Mr.
Lyman Balcom, of Steuben County, N.
Y., an old and experienced farmer, writes
the Genesee Farmer that he thinks one
load of manure, hauled out and spread at
any time between the 20th of September
and winter/is worth more than two loads
applied at voj <tth*r setow.
Farming, liSe every other calling, has
?KJ&'JA an tages and l?isadvanfcigcs. The
farmer is the most .independent and the
most dependent man in existent-D. With
farming, as .with every other branch of
business, judgment, prudence, und ?corio
ny are rerpihsittf -rb success.. .-T^the man
.vhn possesses thos^, an agricultural life
r>rings the plVas?r?^i?'Jn lei>t-n<3?iicc-Avit?i
all the chiirui? ok variety. To'such;-tho
fluctu?t ?ott. .of trWle, . the- ribe:>ahdyf?i?; ojf,
stocks, the rumored protests,, or rumored
hank su-peusfbus?haye^little, brno terror.
Life has chirms tor him which it has not
for men of other professions. Ho wel
comes tin* changes of seasons nt their ap
proach : he' is not afraid of being behind
hand wi h his crops, being overtaken by
an earl) frost, or disconcerted by a pre
mature spring. He welcomes every
change of tin? seasons, being always well
prepared for their coming.
' ut with some it is hu- difi'eieiit, they
are never at case, everything around them
goes wrong;. \VTith them ic is too bot or
loo.cold, too wet or loo dry. No matter
whether the sunshines, or" whether the
cloudsdrop rain, snow, orhail, the weather
is always wrong. No matter whether the
.narket price, of wheat is 50 cents, or
?1,50 per hu-he! il is always too low, and
rh?-higher it goes up, the less inclined
are they to ?elh Their cattle and hogs
are helping themselves to corn at home,
or plundering their neighbor::. In this
way. they are continually in trouble, and
lead a restless, unsatisfied life.
There is nothing more important on
the firm thatl system and order. Never
undti take to do too much, do one thin?
a? a lime, and do ir well. Lay down a
ohm of che wo-k to |>e done, ami do that
iii- -t wh ehm-eds d ung the most, and
iiiiidi it I'.-f re von leave it. .W-vcr pitt
off til! to-morrow what, can le done to
day; delays are proverbially dangurou:4,
and to none more so than to tiie farmer.
Never exceed your, nieass'by attempting
'tbcult?vate more than you can do well,
and in due season. 'Keep a memorandum
of you.- work, household expenses, cost
of labor, &c", arid balance with lin- income
of your business. Under such manage
ment, you will at Jill times understand
the exact state ot" affairs. The farmer
should know bis profit and loss just as
i^uch as thc merchant. Observe these
few hints and you will find les- rough
corners: in the routine of your farm opera

W/ANTS AK EXPLANATION.-A corres
pondent i-f th" Hartford Post, writing
from Collinsville, says:
>;i observed a iTolsce in one of the pa
pers recently of thu betii-iit nf drivii??
iiaiis in to'inri t trees lo increase i hu sup
ply bf fruit, lt litis long boen claimed
by..som'*, that oid scythes, sickles, horse
shoes,' &c, hung on the limbs of trees,
would increase their fertility; by others
it has been scouted as a superstitious no
.tion. The writer will state.OKO circum
stance which came uuder his personal ob
servation that is worth recording:
li Mr. G. H. Nearing, of this place, had
a thrifty growing apple tree fruin a nur
sery set out in Iiis garden, on ??nc of thc
limbs of which was the label attached tc
a small wire, which he neglected to lakt
oflj and soon the wire was entirely im
bedded in the bark. The next year thc
limb was loaded so heavily that it was
neces?ary to prop it up, while there was
uot an apple on any other part of thc
tree. Can some one of our pomol?gica]
friends explain the phenomena''5'
RsMEllT KOK WOBMS IN PiACII AM:
OTHER FRUIT THEES.-Expose the tops
of the roots to the dislance of a foot 01
eighteen inches all around the tree, by
removing the earth carefully, and fill up
the place with Pride of India berries and
cover them loosely over with dry earth,
The rain, dew, or any other moisture car
ried to thc roots through this "bed ol
berries" will effectually destroy iwy kind
of worm by which the tree is troubled.
Thc same treatment will doubtless prove
efficacious in protecting the roots of the
artichoke and other plants of Ue vegeta
GREASE THE WHEELS.-Oil aud black
lead is supposed to be the best substance,
but wo have always found lard and flour
apparently as good. If the wheels arc
kept well lubricated, very little difference
will be found between the ease of running
wooden and iron axles in ordinary farm
work. The smaller the axle, the less will
always be the friction, other things being
equal ; because the spokes have a greater
purchase, the friction being the resisting
force, and being nearer the end of the
lever when the axle is small.
