Some egg raisers claim that the best use for skimmed milk is to give it to hens to drink; that it is worth twice as much for this purpose as tor feeding to hogs: and that by its use in winter chickens will lay constantly. This must be their only drink, and to have access to it at all times. We learn that the Farmers' irriga tion Ditch, designed to water an im mense tract of land lying around and near Kern Lake, is completed, and that the water will be turned into it to-day. It is taken out of the river at a point due north of Bakorslield, and is probably not less than 12 miles in length, in sonic places natural chan nels being taken advantage of. It is one of the most valuable franchises in the country and, the OUBUIg season, will develop immense agricultural re sources.—[Kern Courier. In our notice, last week, ofthe three Granges organized in this valley, wo are unable to give the names of those organized in the Kern Island and New River district. These are as follows: Kern Island—H. D. Robb, Master; P. P. May, Overseer; J. R. HaWorth, Lecturer; O. B. (irmsby, Chaplain; H. Noble, Steward; Jacob Oarlock, As sistant Steward; G. H.

A great mai.y seemingly extrava gant tales about the productiveness and profits of the alfalfa crop are go ing the rounds of tbe press, but here is one we know to be well within the bounds of probability and strictly true. A gentleman living In the Lower King's river country informs us that from 5 acres of alfalfa he last year cut twenty tons of bay, that netted him $10 per ton, and raised one crop of seed weighing 2,200 pounds, that net ted him twenty cents per pound, so that he made a clear profit oil'his five acres of alfalfa of $040. Of course this story sounds small in comparison with many we hear every day, but it has this advantage, that no one will doubt its truth, and will seem quite good enough to any reasonable man.—[Kern County Courier. Jonathan Talcott gives a statement in the Boston Cultivator of an experi ment performed on a Suffolk pig, where sugar beets were largely em ployed for fattening. The animal was about a year old, and tlie feeding on boiled sugar beets, tops and root, be gan on the Kith of August, ami was continued three times a day until the Ist of October, after which ground feed was given, consisting of two parts of corn and one of oats three times a day, till the animal was slaughtered, the meal being mixed with cold wat er. The result was, on the 10th of August, when the sugar beet feed was liegun, that the weight was 360 lbs; September Ist, 890 tbs; October Ist, 450 lbs; November Ist, 520 tbs. This is the substance of the statement given, by which we perceive that the in crease the last of August, when fed on boiled sugar beets, was at the rate of two pounds per day; the same rate of increase on the same food continued through September. When fed on ground corn and oats, made into cold slop, the gain for the next fifty days was less than a pound and a half per day. __ PACIFIC COAST ITEMS.. California has over 3,00,000 fruit trees.

A man named Lambert Sehnelt met with a most horrible death on the 31st tilt. He left Virginia City on horse back, and was found on tbe outskirts of Grass Valley, hanging by one foot in the stirrup' a*»d the horse trotting into town, having dragged the unfor tunate man a mile over a rough and rocky road, battering his skull to pieces.

Along the Santa Cruz west of Tuc son, the farmers have lately been busy plowing and preparing to sow their barley and wheat. The cottonwoods and general appearance of the valley including the weather, are much like the be«t exhibition of the country In the Western and Middle States during October. Max Ritcher was convicted in Ala meda, on the 20th ultimo, of maintain ing a nuisance and for cruelty to ani mals, and fined twenty-five dollars on each charge. Starving a horse to death was the cause of the prosecution. A year's imprisonment would have been It light punishment for the offence. San Beruardino Items, The installation of the officers of the I.

Nearly every article of farm pro duce that was grown on the delta of Kern river last year is now exhausted. It has all passed out of the hands of the producer, at high prices, and is now mostly consumed. Almost the only article, of which any is left, is hay, but there is not sufficient until the next crop comes in. This scarcity is not owing to bad crops; better never grew, but to the large immigration and an unexpected demand from the mountains where crops were not good. All the barley used for feed and seed Imported. To pay for what has been required thus far has already taken large sums out of the county. Mr. Cross informs us he has sent away $000 this week to pay for a short sup ply for his stable, and this is only one out the many instances occurring and to occur.—[Kern County Courrier.

THE ALDINE, An Illustrated Monthly Journal; uni versally admitted to be. handsomest Periodical in the World. A Representative and Champ ion of American Taste. NOT KoK SAI.K IN NEWS OR HOOK STOKES. THE ALDINE, wlille Issued with all the regularity, has none ofthe temporary or time ly Interest characteristic of ordinary periodi cals. ' It Is an elegant miscellany ol pure, light and graceful literature ; and a collection of pictures, the rarest specimens of artistic skill, in black and white. Although each succeed ing number affords a fresh pleasure to its friends, tlie real value and beauty of The Al dine will be most appreciated after it has been bound up at the close ofthe year. While oth er publications may claim superior cheapness, as compared with rivals of a similar class, The Aldine is a unique and original conception alone and unapproached—absolutely without competition In price or character. The posses sor of a complete volume can not dv plicate the quantity of tine paper and engravings In any other shape or number of volumes for ten times its cost ; and then, there arc chromos, besides ! Art Department. 1871. The Illustrations of The Aldine have won a world-wide reputation, and ln the art-centers of Europe it is an admitted fact that its wood cuts arc examples of the highest perfection ever attained. The common prejudice ln favor of "steel-plates,"is rapidly yielding to a more educated and discriminating taste which recognizes the advantages of Superior artistic quality with greater facility of production. The wood outs of The Aldine possess all tbe delicacy aud elaborate finish of the most cost ly steel' plate, while they afford a better ren dering of the artist's orignal. To fully realize the wonderful work Which The Aldine is doing for the cause of art-cul ture In America, it is only necessary to con sider the cost to the people of any other decent representations of the productions of grea) painters. In addition to designs by the members of the National Academy, and other noted American artists. The Aldine will produce examples of the best foreign masters, select ed with a vie .7 to the highest artistic success and greatest general interests. Thus the subscriber to The Aldine will, at a trifling cost, enjoy in his own home the pleasures and refining influences of true art. The quarterly tinted plates for 1874 will be by Thomas Moran and J. D. Woodward. The Christmas issue for 1874 will contain special designs appropriate to the season, by our best artists, and will surpass in attractions any of its predecessors. Premium for IST I. Evry subscriber to The Aldine for the year 1874 will receive a pair of chromos. The origi nal pictures were painted in oil lor Hie publish er of The Aldine, by Thomas Moran, whose great Colorado picture was purchased by Con gress for ten thousand dollars. The suh|ccs were chosen to represent "The East" and "The West." One is a view in The While Mountains, New Hampshire! the other elves The Cliffs of Green River, Wyoming Terri tory. The difference In the nature of the scenes themselves is a pleasing contrast,[and affords agood display of tlie artist's scope and coloring. The chromos are each worked from thirty distinct plates, and are In size (12xlti) and appearance exact fnc similes ofthe origi nals. The presentation of a worthy example of America's greatest landscape painter to the subscribers of The Aldine was a bold but pent Marly happy idea, and Its sucessful realiza tion is attested by the following testimonial over the signature of Mr. Moran himself. Newark, N. J.,Sept. 20th, 1873 Messrs. James Sutton & Co. Gkntlkmkn,—l am delighted with the proofs In color of your chromos. They are wonderfully successful representations by mechanical process of the original paintings Very respectfully, THOMAS MORAN. The chroms are in every seuso American. They are by an orignal American process, with material of American manufacture, from designs of American scenery, by an American artist, and presented to subscri bers of the first successful American Art Journal. If no better because of all tills, they will certainly possess an interest no foreign production can Inspire, and neither are they any tlie worse if by reason of peeular facili ties of production, they cost the publishers only a trifle, while equal in every respect to other chromos that are sold singly for double the subscription price of The Aldine. Persons of taste will prize these pictures for them selves—not for the price they did or did not cost, and will appreciate the enterprise that renders their distribution possible. Ifany subscriber should indicate a pref erence for a figure subject, the publishers will send "Thoughts of Home," a new and beauti ful chromo, 14x20 Inches representing a little Italian exile whose speaking eyes betray the longings of his heart. Terms. $sper annum, In advance, with oil chromos free. For 50 Cents Extra, the chromos will be sent, mounted, varnished, and prepared by mall. Tho Aldine will, hereafter be' obtainable only by subscription. There will be no re duced or club rate; cash lor subscriptions must he sent to the publisher direct, or to the local canvasser, without responsibility to the publishers, except In cases where the certifi cate Is given, bearing the fac simile signature of James Sutton & Co. Canvassers Wanted. Any person wishing to act permanently as a local canvasser will receive full and prompt Information by applying to J nines Sutton A io.. Publisher*, dec2B W Maiden Lane, New York.
