AGRICUL TTJRJLL. Selling Corn. Sell no corn in the ear, have all you tell shelled. A hand shelling machine will answer if vour cron is'n small one. If large, get one "to be worked by a horse- power. Neither will cost a great tietu, ami we are very certain mat me cob.?, if crushed, steamed, and fed to Tour cattle, will be worth more to you in a single winter than the price of a eorn-sheller, whether you get a small or larce one. -We believe there ia one- third as much nutriment in a bushel of cobs as there is in a bushel of grain, and we do know that cows or oxen fed upoirthree pecks of the steamed or crushed cobs, in addition to the usual quantity of hay, or tops of fodder, will keep fat. Then why haul your cobs to market to be given away? It costs as much to carry a bushel of cobs to the market as it uoc a bushel ot corn. Shell your corn, leave your cobs at home to nourish your cattle, 'and through them your land; and where you now sell one bushel of corn, you will be able to transport two for the same money. Look this subject fairly i i the face, consult economy, consult the comfort of your cattle, consult the wauta of your soil, and you cannot fail to take our advice. The above from the American Farmer, states the cob question rather strongly. There is, no doubt, nutriment enough in the cob to pay for crindine it fine, with the corn, and'the price is usually enough better to pay lor shelling; but the cob has never been placed by analysis at more than ten per cent of the value of the grain. Live Stock Journal: Indoor Caltnre ol Tomatoes. The London Gardener's Chronicle de scribes a method of raising tomatoes within doors which it says has been successful, and is worthy of general adoption. The seed is sown about Christmas, and by the first week in March the plants arc set out against the back wall of some of the- lean-to vineries, in a good compost, with am pie root-room. Here they make a rapid and vigorous growth, and in the course of the season attain to a height of from ten to twelve feet, and produce successful crops of fruit with great profusion until past Christmas. In this manner early and late tomatoes are obtained from the same plants. As a matter ot course the plants can hardly bo-kept too moist, and a good dressing of crushed bones is occasional' ly given. The border in which the to matoes are planted is only about fifteen inches in width. The plants must be well fed, but the wonderful crops they bear is the- best testimony to the ad van tage foF a liberal treatment. The weight of fruit obtained from one plantJ inaeeason is sometimes remarkable and many of them attain a great size. Horses and mules in use during cold. frosty weather are liable to acute suf fering by having naked iron bits thrust into their .mouths, lhe moment frosty bit is put into the mouth it is pretty sure to stick fast, and with the least possible movement or change of position tear the tender skin of the mouth or tongue. I have known horses (that I suppose have sufiered in this wayj. when about to be bitted to open wide their mouths as if to pre- vent their lips and tongue rrem coming in contact with the cold bit With a little trouble we may prevent much of this suffering. Liet us all take care to have the iron bits nicely covered with gum cloth.leatheror muslin, something pleasant to the mouth, and that will prevent the iron bit coming in contact with the nesh ol the animal. W arm ing.thebit'by the fire or holding it in the hand may answer, but this requires time and attention, and in cold weath er, and perhaps hurry, is very apt to be neglected. A bit once permanent ly covered may last all winter. Uor. Berks Intelligencer. German Harness. One of the most marked contrasts between the German and American draft harness is the manner in which it is made up, the stitching being done with leather thongs, and m some cases when the harness are high-priced, the stitching is ingenious and ornamental two styles or stiches are used one the single or front stitch, the other the chain or back stitch. The leather for thongs is made expressly for this pur pose; is alum-tanned, is clear, white, and soft, and can by dyed any desired color, but tho principle ones used are red and blue. When well made, this leather is very tough, and when cut into very long thongs is not easily bro ken. The -usual width of thongs is one-Iourth ol an mcb, but lor ornamen tal work they are cut as high as one sixteenth of an inch, these heing used lor forming flowers and other ornamen tal devices. Fruit on the Farm. Too many farmers, says the Agricu' turist, neglect to provide fruit for their families, while it is true that every farm in the West would, with a little care, furnish an abundant supply of small fruit and apples,; yet how many farms do we nnd that raises .a supply for the family ol strawberries, rasp berries, blackberries, grapes and cur rants. Every -farmer expects to hav them, perhaps next year, lhe won derful fertility of the western soil, and its special adaptation to fruits, is every vear being more fully appreciated. During the fruit Reason every citizen of the cities and towns, from the richest to the poorest, enjoys the blessings of small fruit, and liave berries on their tables the season through, from the time tho strawberries ripen, followed by the luscious raspberries, then the more abundant crop ot blackberries and grapes. The mechanic at his trade enjoys these luxuries; yet how few far mer are there who have them on thf ir tables? and yet every farmer in the land, could have them in his own gar- den fresh every day but for the plant ing and a little care and attention. Not everyone can grow small fruit at a profit, but that should not prevent ev eryone troni growing enougli lor home use. Have plenty of fruit on the farm and you will add one of the greatest charms to rural life, and you will not see all the young men fleeing to the cities where they can get the abundance of fruit they ought to have at home. California's Wonderful Farmer. A Sacramento paper says that Dr. Hugh. J. Glenn, of Jacinto, Colusa county, California, has raised and har vested the past season, on his own farm. G00.000 bushels of wheat. This would load eighteen 1.000 ton shins. or three hundred canal boats. All ! this wheat he has now in his own ware house, ready foe shipment when the water in the Sacramento river rises sufficiently. The Doctor pays $90, UUU lrcight to put his wheat in ban Francisco. Ho is a wonder to the ag ricultural world and to himself. He runs ninety cans-ploughs, and a whole county's population in the harvest field, with a dozen threshers. His farming is not confined to wheat alone, He markets 8100 000 worth of stock eacli3'ear. Dr. -Glenn is a practical farmer, and manages all his immense business himself, lie can mend trace and make a key to an ox-bow with Ins jack-knite, just as easy a3 'drawing his check for $100,000, which he can do every day m the week. Dr. Glenn was born in Augusta county, Virginia, and does honor the "Old Do minion. Improvement of Clayey Soil. One of the principal defects of clay ey soils, esneciallv where thev rest un- on a subsoil of the same nature, is the excess of water which is held in them, lhe only enectual way, in the ma jonty ot cases, to get rid of this is by thorough unrterd raining lhis draws off bv imperceptible degrees all the excess ot water, and opens the soil to the tree admission ot the air, which m its passage through it imparts warmth and such lertihzmg gases as it may contain. Upen drains or ditches though less enectual, are uselul. In some cas"es, water furrows, terminating in some ravine or ditch, isrve a good purpose. Limo is exceedingly useful as an amenoraior oi ciayey sons, inuu cing cnenucai comDinauons, me me chanical effect of which is to brea; up the too great tenacity of the clay. while it adds, at the same time, an ele ment of fertility which perhaps may be wanting evpsum, or plaster ol 1'ans has the same effect in a still more pow erful degree. Ashes, coarse vegetable manures, straw, leaves, chips, etc, are also very useful, adding new materials to the soil, and tending to separate its E articles and destroy their strong co eision. Clayey lands must never be ploughed when wet. JSorth Uarolmum. HOUSEHOLD HINTS. Every good housekeeper always washes and thoroughly dries her coffee pot every lime it is used. Cube J; or JNeuralqu.

THE GRANGERS. Some Pertinent nnd Sensible Succes sion Lrtjni n jncniDcr or me oruer. Beaver Dam, Ky., February 4, 1874. J Editor Herald: Permit me thro' your paper to make some suggestions to the ratrons ot Husbandry, lhe first year of our history as an order in this county and estate is written, and in the beginning of the new year let us review our work, so that we may be better prepared to act in the future. Uur growth as an order is without a parallel loUO Oranges in Kentucky and 38 in Ohio county, all organized in but little over a year. last year was devoted to organiza tion and discipline. This year we are in a condition to begin to realize some of tho benefits of the order. As the Grange is intended as a school for the farmer and his family, I would suggest that every laudable means be used to make the Grange attractive. As the efficiency of any organization depends greatly upon its omcers, and especially this of ours, let me urge every of ficer to be prompt in attendance on their meetings, and faithfully dis charge every duty assigned them es pecially the lecturers. Your duties, brethren, are responsible, and mueh ot the interest ot the Orange depends up on you. xou are expected to collect information and lay it betore the Grange. You can make your meetings in structive and interesting by appointing some brother or sister to write or lee- ture upon some given subject pertain ing to Agriculture. Give them from one meeting till the next to prepare tnemseives, ana iei an mat aesire crit i t t it .i i ' . icise the theories advanced. Be par ticular to call upon the meraliers for short speeches especially the younger memDcra. in inis way you gain in formation, and develope talent that would never otherwise be brought to light. At the last meeting ol the lxunci at Hartford, one of thn, editors of the Herald was before the Council, and made some very liberal propositions in regard to hw paper, They propose devoting considerable space to the U range mtercst.and other matters ot in teresttous. Every Master was instruct ed to lay the matter before his Lrrange. JNow, brethren, let me urge upon you to give the proposition a favorable con sideration. Wc have successful far mers who are capable of instructing us who are less lavored. .bet us put our Lecturers to work, and publish their addresses iu the Herald, and we will all be benefitted by it If our ortliog raphy and grammar is not perfect, it is no reason we should not try to im prove. We have been too long con tent to pay others to write and think for us. Let us make a ""new depart ure," and do more brain work for our selves. Now, friendly printer, if you can decipher these hieroglyphics, I will be convinced of. your skill, and take it as evidence that the Herald will succeed. Lest I weary some one, I will desist Fraternally Yours, J. M. Rogers. For the Hartford IUeai.d. IN UNION THERE IS STRENGTH; Adopting the above, or a similar sentiment, as their motto, the farmers of our country have formed themselves into a common brotherhood believing mat Dy so doing mey couia improve their condition and advance their in terests" as a class of colaborers. Hav ing their organization jvell nigh com plete, the questions very naturally arise: What shall we do first? What is the first evil to be corrected or improve ment to Tie made? The answer to these questions seems to be two-fold buy as cheap as possible and sell at the highest prices. The correctness of this answer will bo readily endorsed, but another question arises: How can this be done? Here we will separate the pro)ositions, and devote ourselves for the present to tho consideration of buying. As implements ot husbandry, sugh as wagons, plows, harrows, culti-. vators, reapers, mowers, &c., are of the first importance to farmers, we will investigate that particular class of pur chases, and confine our suggestions to the Grangers of Ohio county. Now, wc have a subject to handle with some very nice points, for we must not for get that agricultural implements are the product of labor against which no blow is aimed. Then now is the far mers' interest to be subserved by get ting his implements at reduced rates without militating against other classes of labor? Simply by placing himself in a position to buy at the cost of pro duction, and this can be done by the establishment of a factory in their midst, accessible to all, without even the cost of transportation. This prop osition may appear somewhat wild at first glance, but a little 6ober reflection will show its reasonableness. Ohio is a large county, with many farmers in independent circumstances, and a small surplus of funds that can be thrown together, and form a joint-stock com pany, to establish a factory that will turn out all the implements used iu this country. "With the facilities this county affords, such as plenty of water, great abundance of the best of timber, cheap fuel, &c, there is no good rea son why such an enterprise should not be conducted as successfully here as auy where else. "We will assume that fif teen thousand dollars will be reqired to start with, though a less amount might suffice for a successful start. It will be an easy matter for the farmers of Ohio county to rake this amount. Fifteen men, with a thousand dollars each, or thirty men with five hundred dollars, or one hundred and fifty men with one hundred dollars, each, and the work is accomplished. "We sup pose there is no man who would argue for a moment that there are not one hundred and fifty men in the county that could spare a hundred dollars for such an.enterprise, nor do we suppose any good reason can be given why this class of goods should not be turned out here as cheap as elsewhere. We don't propose to do it cheaper, and this fact may bring some one to the stand with the question; How, then, is tho com mon farmer to be benefitted? The an swer is easy. First, it furnishes you withgood3 at factory prices, cutting offseveral commissions and transporta- if I" 1 ? i " x! TTT1 uuus, -wiucn is quite an iiem in me dui of purchases. Secondly, it furnishes many a farmer an opportunity of buy ing their implements with the products of the farm. In going to the factory to purchase any implement, a small lot of timber may be taken along to give in exchange for the thing needed, or a little marketing may be taken in exchange, for such a factory as here proposed, will employ quite a number of mechanics, and each one of them will be a consumer and not a producer of the products of the farm. Again, a very great beneht, reaching all classes of society, is derived from hay- f A, . 1 . t. il - ing me money inai is spent, ior mis class of goods remain in our own coun ty, to circulate, enliven and build it up, instead of sending it abroad to enrich other sections. The suggestions here made, apply with equal force to many other branches of business, and show conclusively that the farmers of Ohio county, by proper organization and management, may become not only self-sustaining, but a community as independent and prosperous as need be desired. Lac. Au Industrious Spider. A spider constructed its web in an ancle of a garden, the sides of which were at tached by long threads to shrubs at the height of nearly three feet from the grav el path beneath, .being much exposed to the wind, the equinoctial gales oi this au tumn destroyed the web several times. The ingenious spider now adopted a new contrivance, it secured a conical frag ment of gravel, with its large end upward, by two cordp, one attached to each of its opposite sides, to the apex of its w edged - shaped web, and lelt it suspended as a I movable weight to be opposed to the el- fect of such gnsta of air as had destroyed! the webs previously occupving the same situation. iue apiaer must nave uesceau- mi.. -j . i i j ed to the gravel path Tor this special ob ject, and, having attached threads to a stone suited to its purpose, must nave af terwards raised this by fixing itself upon the web; and pulling the weight up to a I height ol more than two feet from the I ground, where it hung. suspended by elas tic cords. Captain Samuel Green, the famous printer of Cambridge, Mass., came over with Governor Winthrop in 1630. His family was remarkable, consisting of I nintteen children by the first wife and eleven by the second, two of whom died young, while the remaining ones attained a good old age, not a death' happening n the family lor the space or htty-two years. Mr. Wallace Gruelle, one of the best ed itors in Kentucky, has charge of the Her ald, a new paper recently started at Hart ford, Ohio county, in this State. Mr. Grnelle is also well known as a lecturer of the Good Templars' organization, and is devoted to the interests oi the Order. Of course the Herald under his direction is spicy and readable.

So soon as a proper appreciation of the want and an aoiuty to meet it were shown, the pnblio at once rallied with enthusiasm to its support, and the result was a rreat artistfo and commercial triumph THE A L DINE. The Aldlna while issued with all of the regu larity, has none of the temporary or trmtly In terests ebaracteristio of ordinary periodicals. It is an elegant miscellany of pure, light, and graceful literature, and a collection of pictures, the rarest collection or artutio, skill, in black and white. Although each succeeding number affords a fresh pleasure to its friends, the real value and beauty oi The Aldirro will be most appreciated after it is bound np at the close of the year. While other publications may claim superior cheapness, as compared with rivals of aimuar class, J. no Aiaine is a unique ana original conception alone and unapproacied absolutely without competition in prloa or character, me possessor oi a couplets vol ume cannot duplicate the quantity of fine pa- er ana engravings in any otner snaps or num ier of volumes, far tm h'sws tls cost, and ties. tiert Wtk chroma, laidat The national feature of The Aldine must bs taken in no narrow sense. True art is cosmo politan. While The Aldine is a stricUy Ameri ran institution, it does not confine itself to the peproduction of native art. Its mission is to cultivate a broad and appreciative art taste, on that will aisenminata on grounds oi intnnsio merit. Thus, while pleadingbefore the patrons of The Aldine, as a leading characteristic, ths productions of. tho most noted American artists, attention wil always be given to specimens from foreign masters, giving subscribers all that pleasure and instruction obtainable from horns or foreign sources. The artistie illustration or American scenery. original with The Aldine is an important fea ture, and its magniSeeat plates us of a siss more appropriate to the satisfactory treatment of details than can be afforded by any inferior page. The judicious interspersion of landscape, marine, figure and animal subjects, sustain an unabated interest. Impossible where the scope of the work confines the artist too closely to a, single sty le of subject. The literature of- The Aldine is a light and graceful accompaniment, worthy of the artistie features, with only such technical disquisiuons as do not interlers wita. the popular interest of the work.
