AGRICULTURAL, Feeding Ntviue in Summer. A corresdondent of the Germantown Telegraph writes: "During the hot sum' mer months I would feed very little solid food, such as corn in the ear or nncracked. I would keep the hogs upon green food constantly.either crass. oats or rye, and feed them at regular intervals, once or twice a day, upon mashed food, either short?, chopped oats or rye, buckwheat, etc, fed in troughs. When fed in this way, and at the same time allowed access to wa ter and shade, hogs will bear crowding brough the hot months, a very good time, II not the beat,- to tato on ncsti. This puts them in the best of condition for corn feeding, which should com mence about the 1st of September, when the new corn is still soil and ten der." This writer is on the eve of finding out that the hog requires bulky food as well as the cow or horse. Because Pork is usually made by feeding grain many farmers have almost ceased to retard the hoc as a frrass-eatin tr animal. When farmers shall study the nature ot the pig and feed it accordingly, .there will be little trouble with cholera, scurvy or other diseases. Both are no doubt occasioned by errors in feeding and unclean surroundings. One point mentioned in the above paragraph needs correction, and that is, that it is dangerous to feed high in summer. This idea has grown out of the fact that diseases are more prevalent m warm weatherp but the cause of greater pre valence-of disease is that concentrated food creates fever in the stomach, and the hot weather increases the difficulty. Cold weather carries off much of the unnatural heat, and thus modifies the effect of grain diet alone. Now the pig should be fed in such a way that the stomach will be healthy all the time, and the summer heat will aid the growth and the laying on of fat With grass or other green food, given with meal, the pig may be fattened much cheaper in summer than fall or winter; it requiring little food to keep up animal heat. 1 he summer is the economical time to make pork; give plenty ot clover, green rye, oais, tur nips, beets, carrots or other green food relished by the pig, and with this giv corn meal, ground oats, peas or any other grain, and your pigs will make healthy pork, and the pork will cost ou percent, less than that made in winter. Live Stock Journal. Forty Bashels of Wheat per Acre. A writer in the Practical Farmer tells how he gets his big crops of wheat: 'For the past five years I have aver aged forty bushels per acre of wheat of the finest quality, always being over weight. I think I am still gaining every year, and attribute this to the system pursued, and especially to keep ing sheep. Illy rotation is corn, bar ley, with clover; third year, clover; and fourth vear. clover mowed dowi for wheat. 'I have never missed a crop of clover by seeding it with barley. It gives the grass seeds a chance which oats do not. I raise full crops of bar ley, which do not at all interfere with the grass, but I think barley rather helps by the slight shading. After the barley is cut, the clover makes aston ishing growth, giving me superior late pasture. Owing to danger from mice, I pasture it down pretty close. My sod is clay loam. I plow down the rank clover about rine inches deep, give it one harrowing, then haul out my manure and spread. This I plow down shallow, as I consider it necessa ry to have the fertilizer near the sur face tor the roots of the wheat plant I use the drill, putting in one bushel and one peck to the acre. Never had wheat hurt by freezing." Wire and Cut-Worms. A correspondent of the Live Stock Journal gives the following prevent ive of the ravages of these insects in corn-fields: Soak the seed in coperas water twentyfourhours before planting, keeping the water a little warm, say seventy degs. Fahr. One pound of coperas in three gallons of water to one bushel of seed. He tested it last year, and not a hill was touched. The cop eras turns the seed black, but does not Kijure the germinative properties. Another preventive Is the following: Soak your seed one night in a tub of equal proportions of lye made from ashes and urine, with a fair portion of blue stone dissolved therein. Pour off the liquid through a basket into a tub, to preserve for use again. Then, while the com is wet, take a first class article of plaster, and mix and stir till each and every grain is thickly and thor oughly coated with the plaster, so as to cover the entire surface of the grains. Then plant as usual, being carelul not to break or rub off the coating. It is t-aidto be, by those who have tested it, a complete preventive against those annoyers to all fanners. Making and Saving Haj-. J. K. Winston, a fine practical far mer of Allensville, Ky., writes to the Rural Sun in regard to making hay, as follows: Believing it the duty of ev ery one to advauce the interest and happiness of his fellow-man, I have concluded to give to my fellow-farmers some information I trust may be of great practical as well as pecuniary benefit. The subject of hay making and saving is one of great importance to almost every one. and especially the making and saving of clover hay, as it has been found not to be easily kept, unless stored undercover, or if stacked, to be thickly capped of with wheat straw or timothy. Now, it may be !"- as safrlv as any other variety of hay, stacked aloncr raid uncapped with anything else. The-plan- to cure and5 pave' H inis: as soon as tnu ciover a m full bloom start your mower, being careful not to cut until the dew is en- tirelv off. and as soon as the clover is well" wilted run up into winrows, and" then put in cocks, taking care not to let any remain uncocked of each day's cutting, as soon as you can, alter putting m cocks, proceed to stacK, ana in the following way: Cut your stack- poles of the desired height you wish to make vour stack, ana let tne poies ue selected that have bunches of limbs at intervals from top to bottom. Then cut off the branches, leaving the arms three or four feet long, and be careful to leave a bunch of the arms near the ton of the pole. After setting the pole, lay some brush or pieces of rails at the bottom, to keep the hay off the ground and proceed to stack your cloven and if your man knows anything about his business, you will find your hay will keep as sweet and long as any other nay pur up in sucks. I cut and stacked last season a large lot of rlnver in this way, and after standing out the whole wmur. it was found as sound and sweet as whei hrst stacked. The arms left to the stack poles keep the hay from settling a par tide, and in this way give it good ven- tilation and drainage. Try it, brother farmers, and you will thank me tor the information. Go To Work. Under this caption, the Sunny South has the following well-said and sensible article: "The great curse of the South idlers, white and black. In all of our towns and cities there are hundreds of strong, healthy and fine looking young men of all colors standing or strolling about the streets irom day to day, and from week to week, with no occupation and, of course, no money; and yet the white ones dress well, and look lat and seem happy, lne universal excuse. 'There is nothing to do. What an idea! when we have here in the South the grandest opportunities ever offered tor any people to accumulate fortunes; a land teaming with resources, and should literally flow with milk and honey. There is no time for idlers, If you can't get work in one department get it in anotner. Aieave ue cuius and get out on little farms. Get few acres of land, make it rich, plant no cotton, and in a few years you will be comfortable,, independent and on the high road to fortune. Don't try to be merchants, lawyers, preachers nor teachers. Everybody cannot be long to these professions. Be farmers, producers, and not consumers. In other words, go to work; there is work, and hard work t)0, and plenty of it to' do. lhe vineyard is large, the labor ers few, and idlers crowd the market places. The fields are white, and the harvest is great, and there is work enough for all. Reaping is work for the strongest man, who nils bis bosom with grain at one sweep of the sickle; the feeblest man can reap a little, and now and then gather a sheaf. Boaz can go forth among the reapers and direct them to their toil; and even tim id Ruth can follow after to glean the shattered stalks, and find some hand fuls dropped to encourage her in her work. There is work to do but who will do it? It is not forming resolu tions, joining societies, or making great ado; but it is putting your shoul der to the wheel yourself. .let every man begin at home, building against his own dwelling, and live in humble dependence on the Lord, and stand ready to do His blessed will." Something New and Good. A live Grange out in Minnesota has passed the following resolutions, which are unique and worthy of imitation: Whereas, It behooves us as far mers and Patrons of Husbandry, to use our best endeavors to advance the cause of agriculture, and increase the funds of onr Grange; therefore, Revolved, first, that the male members 01 our orange do eacn iurnisned one hundred kernels of corn, to be planted the present season, the corn produced to be the property ot our Grange, to be disposed of at a corn festival some time in December next. Second That our Grange pay as a premium for the largest yield from one hundred kernels, one dollar; for the second largest, seventy-five cents; and for the third largest, fifty cents. Third That any member refusing to compete for the premium, or to make the most he can from his share of the seed, shall be deprived of any of the benefits of this act. Fourth That each member shall be prepared to iuniih two disinterest ed witnesses to substantiate his state ment, if required; also items of inter est about cultivation, soil, planting, etc. Fifth That a committee of three be appointed to select the seed, award the premiums and attend to any other busi ness necessary to carry out these reso lutions. Sixth That these resolutions be published in papers friendly to the Patrons, and that other Granges in the State are invited to adopt these or sim ilar resolutions. Seventh That the State Grange be invited to offer a premium of fifteen dollars for the largest yield, ten dollars for the second largest yield and five dollars for the third largest yield from one hundred kernels, to be paid by the Grange furnishing the same. Rural World. A southern planter's opinion is that there is but one of two alternatives for us to choose either to be slaves, many of us and our offspring after us, or to by. freemen; and to be freemen we must first stop the credit system, if we have to live on bread and Water to do so. A very .-ound and sensible opinion it is, too. No fanner is excusable who makes his field work a reason for not attend ing to the vegetable garden. Dreary Homes. Of all the dreary places deliver us from the dreary farm houses which so many people call "home." Bars for a front gate; chickens wnllowing before the front door; pig-pens elbowing the hotrse fn the rear; scraggy trees never cared for, or no trees at all; no flower ing shrubsr no neatness,, no trimness. And vet a lawn and trees, and a neat walk, a pleasant porch and- a neat fence in front do not cost a great deal. They can be secured little by little at odd times, and the expense hardly telt. And if ever the time comes when it is best to sell the farm, fifty dollars so in vested will often bring back five hun dred. For the men are rare that have money to invest in farms who are insen sible to pleasant surroundings and the inducement they oiler to wile and chil dren. HOUSEHOLD HINTS.

A Texus Gentleman wlio Is Learning all Awui me uiw. Dallas Herald Reuben Brooksliaw. charged with burning the house of Jacob Menezer, has been subjected to more hardship in ascer taining his late than any criminal, if he be one, on record. He was first tried for burning a house other than a dwellin house, for which he was convicted, but was granted a new trial, upon which the district attorney dismissed the case against mm, and had him reindicted for burning a dwelling house. He was acquitted of una ouenee, and promptly upon the bring ing in of the verdict the district attorney u Mini nguiu iiiuiuii-u, upuu wuicii in dictment he has had three trials, the jury in each instance railing to agree.

It Is an elegant miscellany of pure, light, and graceful literature, and collection of pictures, the rarest collection of artistic skill, in black and white. Although each succeeding number affords a fresh pleasure to its friends, the real ralue and beauty ol The Aldine will be most appreciated after it it bound np at the elose of the year. While other publications may claim superior cheapness, u compared with rivals of a similar clast, Tbe Aldine it a nniqne and original eoneeptlon alone and unapproached absolutely without competition In price or character.

Thus, while pleadingbefore the patrons of The Aldine, at a leading characteristic, the productions of the mostnoted American artists, attention will always be given to specimen! from foreign m as ten, giring subscribers all th pleasure and instruction obtainable from horn or foreign sources. The artistic Illustration of American tcenery, original with The Aldine it an important fea ture, and its magnificent platea are of ails 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 scop of the work confines tbe artist too elosely to a tingle ttyle of subject. The literature of Th Aldine is a light and graceful accompaniment, worthy of the artiitlo features, with only such technical disquisitions as do sot interfere with the popular interest of the work.
