THE HERALD.
AGRICULTURAL.
Farming it IVc fusion.
Fanning is a profession, and a most
polished profession nt that. No other
profession lias such co-workers ns his.
Every farmer is practically a chem
ist, making and unmaking, composing
'and decomposing material things in a
labratory and on a scale that strips the
manipulator of crucibles of his honors.
Assisted by the Great Architect,the
farmer, on .the floor of his labratory,
mother earth, plants the tiniest seed,
which through chemical action germi
nates and sends forth a small bud that
by accretions from surronnding mat
4er is formed into the great tree. Or
Tiy changing the elements of the earth
through skillful chemical frctilization,
he produces in astonishing perfection,
all the cereals and fruits needed for
man'e sustenance. Another change
and the cereals and grasses of the field
arc changed, through chemical action,
into the most luscious of meats and the
most nourishing milk to gratify man's
appetite. Again, he converts the grain
-and the grass into wool, or the ele
ments of the earth and air into cotton
or flax wherewith to clothe the naked
ness of the human family, and protect
them from the inclemency of the rough--est
climate.
Truly, the farmer is the greatest of
practical chemists, whose labratory is
never closed and whose great teacher,
Nature, stands ever ready to lend a
helping hand in all his experiments
-iind practical works, and tho' his pre
tentions are humble, his accomplish
ments are great.
. As it is with chemistry, fo it is with
all the natural sciences. No man is
more closely and practically allied than
the agriculturist with Iwtany, or the
.study of plants, astronomy, or the
ftudy of the atmosphere; the rains and
the scasonc; political economy, or the
study of the laws he is forced to obey;
geology, or the study of the earth's
curface; in.short, all sciences; and no
other calling teaches a man the practi
cal use of so many arts, orso thorough
ly the philosophy of their application.
Could -oar farming community but ful
ly understand the rank where nature
places them, and the extensive fields
che spreads before every tiller of the
soil for scientific experiment and re
search, then indeed would we see this
industry at once placed at the head of
all the professions, as the most notable,
ihe most' attractive,' the most useful,
-and the most humanizing in its influ
ences of all sciences on the earth, and
the followers of the plow would rank
above many of the idle drones who now
Jill the chairs of professorships or arc
tuueonced in high-priced pulpits and
medical colleges subsisting on the work
ingman's labor.
-Soil tillage is of all, in practice, 'uni
versal science,' including within its em
brace every other, and numbering
among Its followers nature's grandest
nobility, whose destiny it is to give to
the world universal liberty and univer
sal justice then will they be recog
sized as the professors of all sciences
And philanthropy. National Granijer.
Jlnylng Fruit Trees or Peddler.
Certain things, one would suppose,
irould be'generally understood. One
would think that no intelligent man
would need further caution against
buying' articles of which he is not a
judge, from travelling men of whom he
.knows nothing, and from whom he can
"have no redress for frauds. For many
years agricultural papers have cau
tioned farmers against buying fruit
Irees, vines, etc, from irresponsible
peddlers or agents, and yet it seems
that thpusands continue this practice,
and are often seriously imposed upon
We do not denounce all tree peddlers
or travelling agents. Many of them
are honest men representing well-es
tablished and reputable nurseries, but
common business prudence' and good
common sense suggests that it is unwise
and unsafe to buy of men whose char
acter the purchaser knows nothing,
and whose word is the only guarantee
tliat the trees delivered are true to
name, and that they are as represent
oi in quality. All over the country
there are responsible nurserymen, able
and anxious to supply trees to those
needing them, and generally able to
supple those best adapted to the local
ity, and at reasonable rates. Nothing
is gained in patronizing strangers in
preference to these nurserymen, and
often much is lost. Other things be
ing equal, the nearest nurery is the
liest place at which to purchase trees.
Westmi Rural.
The weather for some time past has
been unfavorable to the wheat crop.
Fall IMKft.
Pig that come in the fall months,
especially the latter ones, are unprofit
able stock, In the first place, tliej
are in the way of the fattening hogs,
and from their inability to "stnnd
from under,' are trampled under foot,
have every disadvantage to contend
ngnin-t, and wear a dwarfish appears
mice from which they never recover.
Besides, they generally weigh less
than any hogs in the fattening pen.
Take early spring pigs, and in addi
tion to their regular allowance, give
them the same quantity as that
consumed by pigs coming four or five
months earlier, and they will make
more and better pork, and not be
chargablc with one-fourth the trouble
of their seniors. Perhaps the most
profitable use that could be made of
them would be as roasters, or to feed
them high through the winter and sell
them to the butcher in the spring when
pork is scarce But for the most prof
it, always take spring pigs, and feed
them plenty of milk, meal and clover
through the summer time, and if they
are a good breed they can be made to
weigh at eight months old, or at killing
time, from two hundred to two hun
dred and fifty pounds, and sometimes
more, which is as much as the gener
ality of hogs from twelve to fifteen
months old weigh.
When well fed spring pigs will gain
irom one to two ana a tiait pounds, a
day, and be found much the cheapest
pork the farmer can raise. To make
them attain their greatest weight, how
ever, at eight months old, they not only
require the best of varied food, but
plenty of skimmed milk to begin with,
but also must be one of the best breeds
no "land pike" need be so fed with
the expectation weighing down any
such figures. Nor should the mother
sow be any thing but thrifty and well
kept through theyear. The best breeds
will deteriorate by neglect or short feed
ing, and the pigs of a sow that has
been half fed during gestation will be
puny and slow growing, however plen
ty the subsequent feed may be.
KccpingStrcct Potatoes.
The keeping of the sweet potato is a
much more simple thing than many
imagine. 1 hey must be stored where
the temperature is uniform, not less
than 45 nor more than 70, Fahren
heit; care should also be had not to
store in too great bulk as that will
cause heating, which will destroy tho
whole in a short time. This is the key
to the whole subject, and any method
of procedure that will fulfill the above
conditions, will prove successful. I
cannot go into details for all are not
situated alike, and what would be pro
per and convenient for one to do, would
not be so with another differently situ
ated. Persons wishing to prolong the
season of sweet potato eating as long as
possible, will find the following a good
plan: Take sound potatoes and pack
in boxes or barrels, packing with some
material that will readily fill the inter
stices, as saw dust, dry sand, road dust,
bran or chaff, and set in a warm place
where there is a fire, as the living room
or kitchen. Sweet potatoes can be thus
kept readily past the Widays, and
sometimes even until pnng.--Colmun'i

Potatoes lor Horse.
Nearly every winter, when I have
my horses up in stable I feed potatoes
to them. I once came near losing a
very valuable horse from feeding him
dry hay and oats with nothing Joosen-
mg. I have never believed in dosing
a horse with medicine, but something
is actually necessary to keep a horse in
the right condition. Many use pow
ders but potatoes are better, and safer,
and cheaper if fed judiciously. If those
who are not in the nabit of feeding po
tatoes to horses will trthem, they will
be astonished at the result. I have
known a horse changed from a lazy,
dumpish one to a quick, active, head
strong animal, in a few days, by simply
adding two quarts of potatoes to his
feed dauy. If very much clear corn
meal is fed, they do not need so many
potatoes. Too many potatoes are weak
ening, and so are too many apples.
When I was a lad, I was away from
home at school one winter, and I had
the care of one horse, one yoke of oxen
and one cow, every one of which I had
to card or curry every day. The horse
had three pails of water, four quarts of
oats, two quarts of corn extra every
day he worked, and a stronger and
more active horse of his inches I have
never yet seen. Country Gentleman.
Young Stoclt.
All young stock, colts, calves and
lambs, should have meal or grain the
first winter, for this is the time to lay
the foundation for future excellence
and profit. For calves and lambs there
is no feed that pays better than shorts
and bran we mean the old-fashioned
shorts or middlings with this we may
profitably mix shelled corn for calves,
;ind oats for Iambs,
T . .a.
t or colts nothing
can take the place of oats.
Improving Common Sliocp. ,
A flock of sheep was exhibited by
Mr. C. B. Gilman, at the fair of the
New England Agricultural Society at
Portland, Me., September, 1809, as
"Improved Native Sheep," and which
the owner stated had been brought to
their present state of perfection by a
most thorough and continued course of
selection and breeding, not only by
himself, but by his father and others
at an early period. These sheep were
of large size, symmetrical, and appais
ontly very robust and healthy, com
paring favorably with any one of the
many flocks on the ground. The wool
was very white, fine and even, extend'
mg well down the legs, around the
face and head and covering the belly,
and resembling in their features the
best type of Merino. It is stated that
originally selections were made of the
best sheep from different flocks with
reference not only to quality of wool,
but also size, shape, &c., and subse
quent breeding was followed by care
ful selection of such as exhibited the
most marked improvement with least
defects, excluding all others.
The first point aimed at was perfect'
ing as far as possible the staple, worje-
mg out any appearance of hairy coats
or coarse spots of wool, covering the
whole body with wool of good quality
a labor of years during which time tho
symmetry of form, size and constitu
tion were not neglected. There was,
as a matter of course, a necessity for
more than the usual care in selecting
and breeding, requiring care and good
breeding, guarding against ill effects by
division of the flock, selecting the stock
from the best of cither, and breeding
in turn irom the best selections of these
mingled strains.
The flock exhibited were notably un
iform, good size, covered with fleeces
which though not so fine as the best
Merinos, were of excellent quality,
white and clear, free from the "finish"
for which many fine wool sheep have
heretofore been noted, and a wool ev
ery way adapted to the wants of the
farmer's household, as well as the
American manufacturers. Their uni
form size made them nearly, if not
quite, M valuable for mutton as the
Leicester or Cotswold, their weight
falling little if any short of these val
uable breeds. They were especially
noted and commented at the time as
good examples of what may be accom
plished in the improvement of common
sheep, being a flock of which any shep
herd may be proud Rural New
Yorker.
Working Barren Cown.
An experienced Kentucky breeder,
Mr. Vaumeter gives the result of his
treatment of cows that had been deem
ed hopelessly barren. This specific as
a remedy for barrenness is work. At
the famous New YorkMills herd sale
he purchased fora song $100 the 3d
Duchess of Thorndale, then deemed
hopelessly barren, as she had not pro
duced a calf for three years. His mode
of raauagement is simply to reduce the
flesh without producing inflamation.
Starving the animal he thinks injuri
ous, and adops the plan of giving se
vere exercise with only moderate feed
ing. In most cases he works the sup
posed barren cow under the yoke. In
the case of the 3d Duchess of Thorn
dale, he had her led or ridden four
ra,es daily, and fed on a limited quan
tity o?hay and fodder. She is now
with calf.
In many of j.e con, cron.;Dr states
there is thu year, a ood deaI of corn
that is not perfectly ma.,.
The total corn crop of the 0f
Illinois is estimated for theprecentyi,,
at the enormous nraount of 300,000,
000 bushels.
The value of the surplus of the corn
crop of 1875, and which appears in
various forms of created wealth, at no
less than 8500,000,000.
Good farmers will only Winter over
a few sows for breeding, with, perhaps
some Fall pigs the latter should be
pushed for the Spring markets, and
comfortable quarters provided for all.
There i3 a cow in Carrollton, 111.,
over twenty years old, which gives six
gallons of milk per day, and which has
not had a calf for six years. N
Take any dozen young apple trees in
the sections where the apple-borer is
abundant, and allow a portion to be
choked with weeds and the remainder
well cultivated, and then watch there
suit. From our own experience, we
believe that the chances are nine toono
in favor of those cultivated being ex
cmpt from the pest.
A Clermont county, Ohio, farmer
says: "My experience is that a hog that
has been previously highly fed on corn
does not do well on clover.
Always save the earliest and the
bct seed for vour own use. By so do-
