Feeding Ntviue in Summer.
A corresdondent of the Germantown
Telegraph writes: "During the hot sum'

intervals, once or twice a day, upon
mashed food, either short?, chopped

This puts them in the best of condition
for corn feeding, which should com

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

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

"The great curse of the South
idlers, white and black. In all of our

A live Grange out in Minnesota has
passed the following resolutions, which
are unique and worthy of imitation:

Second That our Grange pay as a

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
