OTTAWA FRi:K TKADEil: SATURDAY, JANUARY 31, 1874.
FARM ANDGARDEN. Wutrrmg Cuttle iu Winter. Next to warm shelter unci good toed, the proper watering of cattle should be uttended to. No farm animals will do well it only watered once a day. It Is true that unimals which arc driven to some frozen pond and watered through holes cut in the Ice will sel tlom iu cold weather drink more than once a day, for the simple reason that they must suf fer trom thirst to bo induced to drink at all ; but this does not, by any means, proye the economy of this system of watering, but rather the reverse. To Drove it, let the stock owner himself get down and drink this thoroughly chilled water. The evidence of danger to the system will be apparent. If there are but few animals to bo watered, it is but little labor to do tho work, since the water for u dozen or twenty cattle can be pumped in about the time the cattle will drink it. If a large herd be kept, a simple wind-mill, pumping into an underground cistern placed upon an eminence and connect ing by means of underground pipes w ith the trough iu the yard at a less elevation, will sulliee to supply any number of cattle or other stock. The outlay, other than tho first ex pense will be but small. If this be impracti cable, a tank may be built of sutlicieut eleva tion, and enclosed so that it shall be practi cally frost proof, when it will work day and night, winter and summer, when the wind blows (and when does it not in the west?) and will repay its cost, every year, where a con siderable herd is to be watered. For years, we had such a mill that furn ished water from a fifty leet well, which sup plied the house, 500 to GOO swine, twelve horses and ten cows besides furnishing water for the green house and hot beds of over 000 sashes, which latter alone, in the spring, used to require the work of one man with a horse to water. We simply state this to show the amount of water a good sized mill will pump. Tiiii great udvaiiUgc of this syuU-m of water ing is, that the water may be carried in com mon iron gas-pipes wherever you want, and the water is never thoroughly chilled, so as to distress stock in drinking. Consequently they take it just when they want it, niul usually in small quantities at a time. They are thereby saved the ague chill that usually occurs after the periodical filling up under the system as practiced by too many of our farmers. There is nu doubt that, with proper watering and warm shelter iu winter, all farm aniniala would come out from twenty-five to fifty per cent, better than they now do. We have proved this proposition to our perfect satisfaction by experience in fattening cattle. The proposition will hold good with other stock. It will pay to give farm stock first, warm shelter; second, plenty of good lorage; and third but not least, water to drink at will, certainly twice a day, and then never chilled to the freezing point. Our correspondent, "G. W. L.," of Delaware, Iowa, sends us a valuable hint with respect to the watering of cattle in winter. lie says : "Many farmers water their stock from wells, and iu the winter time they experience con siderable difficulty by the accumulation of ice around the trough. Many limes cattle, even though very dry, will go away w ithout drinking rather than venture on such a slip pery place to get water. I have a very simple and cheap remedy: Take an armful or two of straw, scatter it over the ice, and sprinkle over it some water, which soon frezes fast, and the remedy is complete." Western Jin ml. Some Fucts in I'tlerilraliliiifr. Mr. John Johnson, now in his eighty-third year, is the greiit father of uuclerdiaiuiug in this country. He had a rather wet piece of ground at Geneva, New York, and after read ing what had been done in England, deter mined to try for himself in this country, what good it would do. There were no tiles made in America, so he had to oeml to Europe for them. This was in 1835. In 1838 he in duced some American to make them. In a recent New York Tribune, Mr. Johnson gives his latest opinions, derived from continuous observation. He says, in regard to the depth at w hich drains should be laid, that there is no rule. They have to go below the hard pan, however deep that may be. lie has no draius on his farm but two and a half feet deep and they act just as well us some would at four feet. The range is generally from two and a half to four feet. In underdraining, it is the practice to make a main drain, somewhere where there is a good fall, and then the lateral drains are led intotlm one. There has been some dispute as to how large the main drians should be. For instance it there is one main ot lour in ches in diameter and a dozen smaller ones savtwo inches lead into it, people are apt to calculate that there is the combined bores of the dozen sav twenty-four inches to dis charge into the four inches, and are apt to argue that this cannot operate; but .ur .Johnson has twenty-two of these two-inch drains running into one four-inch main, and lie finds that the water goes through just as well as if the main were larger. For a time he could not understand this, but at last he found the pressure of so much water behind increased the velocity ot the water passing Ihroiiffh the main. It made up in velocity what the nine was short of in bulk. This principle is well known to everybody when once it is suggested, and yet it Is a tact peo pie are very liable to forget w hen engaged in unUerdraimng operations. As to what laud it is profitable to under drain, this is a subject which, like the depth of drains, depends altogether on circum stances. If good farm land can be had in the vicinity for say 50 per acre, it is very doubttul whether it will pay to spend $150 per acie in underdraining it. It would be mrc profitable to sell tlie wet land which needed draining, and buy other lands that did tot. Again, where water does not re main very near the surface, but sinks soon after each rain ten fret or more, unlerdrain ing will add very little more to the value. There are many "parts of the country w here water stands lor months but a few feet from the surface, an account of solid clay deposit known as hard pan, and iu such cases it will pay, in all probability, to underdrain one's land. Mr. Johnson made it pay handsome ly. Many have followed his example inju diciously, a.nl have had no benefit which would compensate for the capital involved. In some cases there is great benefit at the same time there is no department of improv ed agriculture that requires one to move so thoughtfully as in underdraiu'iig operations. Forney' Wifkly J'rt. A good authority on the culture of peanuts says: "Select a soil which is fertile with sandy loam; plant about the usual time of planting corn; remove the husk from the seed before planting. Plant two seeds in a hill, two inches in depth, in rows three feet apart ami one foot apart in the rows; keep the ground mellow and free from w ceils. Some make ridges like those prepared for sweet potatoes, but it is not essential. Level deep cultivation will be the best, if the season is a verv dry one. Tiie early cultivation may be motlv done with horse "power, but the later working must be done w ith a hand hoc. The yield varies from fifty to one hundred and fifty bushels per acre. "When dug, they should be spread to dry under a roof, and those for planting kept from freezing. A stout four pronged fork is used ft.r digging them. A property in glycerine, upon which many usrnare now founded, is the facility with which it dissolves a large class of bodies and at the same time preserves them from altera tion and decay. One of Ihe mort important applications is the preservation ofme.it from decay. Natural history specimens and anatomical preparations can be kepi in glycerine instead of alcohol. Wood impreg nated or washed with glycerine does not warp or dry up, and advantage is taken of this lact to keep butter-tubs, vvaler-pails, barrels and tanks lrom shrinking. In fact, its uses are atmost endless; but enough examples have been given to show upon what prinepie the applications are founded, and it is easy for an Intelligent person to imagine new uses in cases of emergency. Clipping Horse. The practice of shearing horses is quite popular in some of the European cities, and is not entirely without followers in this country, and even in Chicago. It is done in the fall and winter, in order to produce (he same appearance in w Inter as the short, natu ral summer coat gives to the carriage and driving horse in the warm season; and is claimed to exercise a favorable influence on the health of the animal, giving tone to the system, and bracing up the constitution gen erally. We are not sure that the operation in con nection w ith the treatment which such horses generally receive can be defended on the score of either beauty or utility. It is a vio lent, unnatural operation, to rob a horse in November of the protection which nature provided for him in the hair of his body against the rigor of winter in this latitude. That it may be done without serious detri ment is conceded, but that one drivingJior.se in ten is so carefully handled as to avoid se rious danger to his'health by exposure under such circumstance's, is doubted ; and, in a large majority of cases, it becomes simply a barbarous outrage upon the health and life of our most valuable speechless servant. Spans of stylish carriage horses may be seen frequently before our fashionable dry goods stores, waiting for their mistresses to finish slmpmng, shivering a the breeze tin- mer cury "down about zero the driver too ignor ant or too lazy even to throw p blanket over their closely shorn forms. That pneumonia or some oilier fearful acute diseases does and must follow every such brutal exposure, is a reasonable certainty. So much for the utili ty. In regard to beauty, few persons who really love a fine horse, and truly admire his qualities, fall to find pleasure in the soft, silky coat of a high bred, well-groomed horse in winter. It is a feature which every horse man expects and values. We have t alien some pains to ascertain w ho arc the advocates of this practice, and find they may be classed about as follows: First, a few gentlemen who know very tittle of the danger which attends it, and who are really pleaded with the change it makes in the ap pearance of the animal. Second, a few self dubbed veterinary surgeons, who, having been hangers on in foreign stables, have come to this "blarsted country" full-fledged "horse doctors," anxious for practice. Hut third and chiefly, a lot of lazy, presuming, ignorant "rooms, who are not willing to run ury t..e natural winter coat of a horse after he comes in from exercise. It takes fifteen minutes longer, and a good deal more honest work, to groom tho latter well, than it does to dry out the former. JNo coiiMucration of comfort or health to the dumb brute, or of the interest of the owner, enters into their calculations. The lang hair once wet with perspiration, must be thoroughly rubbed, or it w ill tell the tale of neglect until it is, but a few passes of the cloth sullice cover up all such e vidences on the other. The clothing is thrown on almost immediately on the arrival of the latter at the stable, and the work is done. It is sincerely hoped that this practice will not become "fashionable;" but should it be otherwise, wo may look for a frightful in crease of lung diseases among horses subject ed to it a harvest of employment for the doctors, and a harvest of death to their unprev testing victims.

Having Removed to Our New Factory, On the corner of Clinton and Jpffemn Street", (l'oniierly the old Knlscopal Church.) we are prepared to lill your orders for Tim Agriculture of tlio Future;. From N. Y. Evening Post. There is a curious and very radical article in the December number ot larmier's Miigu- ute upon farming, ihe writers Delict is that in the time to come a larm will lie an immense food factory carried on by a compa ny. The companies will be joint stock com cerns, issuing shares of from if ")0 to $250 each, and working from 3,000 to 10,000 acres. The buildings of the farm (such is the scheme) must be placed on the highest point ot land, so that water antl manure may be conveyed over the surface by gravitation. Machinery is among other services, to shear a sheep. A whole staff of butchers will be employed to kill and cut up bullocks and transmit the meat in pieces suitable for the London mar ket straight to the salesman, without Ihi! in tervention of a dealer. The salesman w ill be in the company's employ, and will only sell their meat. The company will make an ef fort to get more than one crop in a year. But the most surprising of the results which await the future of fanning w ill be the ripen ing of crops by means of an electric current passed through the plants, or by some other kind of artificial heat. One point of which the writer makes much is the impossibility of profit in England lrom the cultivation of wheat. Wheat is almost the only agricultural product which has not risen since 1770. The only sort of corn which ia much dearer now than then is barley, the rea son beinsr that barley is used in distillation ami brew ing. In the last fifty years meat ami dairy-prouiice nave greatly risen in price Yet wheat remains the same, notwithstanding the rise in the price of labor and the increase in the price (f rents. No increase ot demand has any important effect upon the price f corn. A rise in w heat will at once bring any Quantity of it to England. The importation of wheat by England in ISofJ was 5,000,000 quarters, or 40,000,000. In 1871 the importa tion was nearly iu,uuu,ouu quarters. 1 el me price ot w heat in lSit was lower than in lw. It is very plain, says the writer in Fri r, that wheat cultivation can no longer be pro fitable, and it would be better to use the land thus occupied to raise produce, which must be imported to England at a loss. One of the diflicultics which the fanner must meet is to find sonic green produce which will take the place of wheat in the rotation of crops.' This obstacle the author of the article thinks a serious ouc. The Tootiiachk. An exchange gives the following: "My dear friend," said II., "1 A .,.
