TJic Value ot Red Xtnst VroOTOnUt.

oaU will produce just as much muscle
and fat as a Dound of corn. 1 have
tent a horse far two years without ever
feeding him an ear of corn or a blade
of fodder, his d uly diet being shelled
6ats aud straw, or cut oats from the
hheaf; he has been ploughed, wagoned,
hacked about in a bugy, and ridden
under the saddle, and there never was
a time he was not ready and willing to
do a full share of work. Any land
that ever I have seen in the South will
produce two bushels of oats where it
wul grow one bushel of corn; each
farmer for himself can calculate the
cost of growins the two crops,
Bed oats will yield more gram to
the straw, and more delicate straw
than any other oats I have ever grown

fW wr ..ntirelv rlestroved hv the

winter, some were ruined by rust,
and all but the red oats were more or
less dam asred by this parasite. Not
even a blade of the red oats were
touched, though the acre was iu the
midst of those most thoroughly ruined.
The time is upon us when they should
again be rsown,though they are remuner
ative ifsown at any time between this
and the 1st of next March.
I prefer to sow in cotton-land broad
cast, and plough in with three or four
sweep furrows. This lays by a cotton
crop as well as sows a small grain crop,
hence a saving of half the labor. It is
cheaper to sow in the cotton field even
if postponed till September or October,
because cotton, requiring clean culture,
the land is in better tilth, and fewer
furrows are necessary. The hands
-while picking cottoa during the winter
will trample upon the young sprigs,
and make them stool out better there-
lor. bheep will winter on oats in a
cotton field and never molest the cot
ton till they have eaten up the oats.
Where cotton is the exclusive crop,
there is no little vexation and harass
ing doubts at harvest time to him who
ventures to sow small grain. In June
the cotton and corn need the attention
of the laborer constantly. Hence, the
nolicv. almost tiMrasitv. of intpntinrr
the laborer in the ownership at least of
me oai crop, a iiur contract, in tins
regard, b for the employer to furnish
the seed, fertilizer, and land, and re-
quire the employe to supply the labor
of seeding and harvesting, and at bar-
Test time divide the crop, one-fonrth to
the laborerand three-fourths to the em-
ployer. An acre of land, producing
twenty bushels of oats, would thus give
the laborer five bushels of oats for
about two days work (ploughing, scat-
tering manure, knocking down stalks,
and harvesting), and fifteen bushels to
the owner, one and a half bushels of
fertilizers, aud ten bushels for rent. I

R, M. B., of Chester, Illinois, writes
to "Colman's Rural World" as follows:
In my opinion there is nothing more
unsightly than a newly ploughed field,
where the weeds are only partially
buried bv the furrow slice. I have
never found anv difficulty in adiustine

money In Hay
There is probably no business in
which our farmers can engage that
would prove more remunerative than
cutting aud puttinc up hay. This
spring hundreds of tons of hay were
shipped to Omaha, from thirty to one
hundred miles by railroad, and sold at
a fair profit Hundreds of men, who
appear to be intelligent aud enterpris-
ing, will tell us, with arms folded and
their faces lookiuc- as though they had
lost their bast friend, that "there is
nothing to do in this country which
will pay," when acres upon acres of
beautiful grass, that would make ex-
cellent hay, is permitted to go to

THE ART JOURNAL OF AMERICA,
MAOHIFICAST CONCEPTION WOK
DERFULLY CARRIED OUXj
The necessity of a popular nediSra for th
representation of the prodttetions of oar great
artists has always been recognised, and maay
attempts' have been made to meet the waat
The successive failures which have so invariably
followed each attempt in this country to estabr-
lis a an art journal, did not prove the indiffee
ence of tho people of America to the claims oi
high art. So soon as a proper appreciation of
the want and an ability to meet It wen shown,
the pnblis at once rallied with enthusiasm to
its support, aud the result was a treat artistis
and commercial triumph THE ALDINE.
The AldiOe while issued with all or the regu
lar! ty, has none of the temporary or timely Ut'
leretu cnsraeierisue ot ordinary periodicals.
It is an elegant miscellany of pure, light, and
graceful literature, and a collection of pictures,
the rarest collection of artiitio skill, la black
and white. Although each succeeding number
affords a fresh pleasure to its friends, tits real
value and beauty of The Aldine will b molt
appreciated after it is bound np at the close of
;ne year, n one otner publications may claim
superior cheapness, as compared with rivals of
a similar class, Tho Aldina is a nnique and
original conception alone and uaipproached
absolutely without competition in nice or
character, ine possessor or a complete vol
ume cannot duplicate the quantity of fine pa
per and enefarln-j In any other shape or nam
ber of volumes, for ten timet ill cost; and tien,
tiere it tit eiromo, letidet!
The national feature of Tie AlJ'ne most bs
taken in no narrow sense. True art is cosmo
politan. While The Aldina is a strictly Ameri
ran institution, It does not confine itself to the
peprodnetioa of native art- Its mission is to
cultivate a broad and appreciative art taste, one
that will discriminate on grounds of intrinsic)
merit. Thus, while pleading before the patrons
of The Aldine, as a leading characteristic the
productions of the most noted American artists,
attention will always be given, to specimens
from foreign masters, giving subscribers all the
pleasure and instruction' obtainable from hems
or foreign sources.
The artistie illustration of American f cenery,
original with The Aldine is an important fea
ture, and its magnificent pfatei ore of a site
more appropriate to the satisfactory freatstant
of details than can be afforded by any inferior
page. The judicious interspersion of landscape,
marine, figure an! animal subjects, sustain an
unabated interest, impossible where the scope
of the work confines the artist too closely to a
single style of subject. The literature of The
Aldine is a light and graceful accompaniment.
