FEEDING THE GBAIN UPON i 11); FARM.
We last week published an article in our
agricultural column, showing the advantage
of keeping more cattle on the farm, and
feeding the grain to them, w hereby more
and richer manure is made, instead of sell
ing the grain from the farm, causing the
soil to lose the richest sustenance. Mr.
Frederick Holbrook, a practical and success
ful farmer, continues the subject in the
New England Farmer. The grain which he
recommends to be fed is of course, such
as corn, rye, buckwheat, &c. The true sys
tem of bringing the soil to the highest de
gree of fertility is by keeping more well
fed cattle, and increasing the amount of
rich manure. More live stock, and of a
good kind, is what our farmers want.—Sun
bury Gazette.
Mr. Holbrook says :—The hay and coarse
fodder are generally fed out on the farm,
but often the principal part of the grain is
sold of directly for cash. Now I have the
impression that in the long run, all things
considered, it might be better to feed out
the greater par, of the grain along with the
hay and other forage, and let the income
of the farm be derived mainly from the
stock. The grain fed with the forage adds
a peculiar essence or strength and activity
to the manure heap, is emphatically "the
leaven which leavens the whole lump,"and
has a very marked influence in increasing
the products of the farm generally. The
land will be more productive in every kind
of crop than if the grain were sold off, and
it only got back the colder and less fertiliz
ing manure made simply from hay and
coarse forage
After a few years of this kind of feeding
the products of the farm will be BO much
increased that considerable more stock can
be kept on it, which will, in turn, make
more manure for the land. These influences
will work back and forth one upon the
other, so that in fact the business will grow
more and more profitable, and the income
will increase more in proportion than it
will be necessary to increase the investment
There are hardly any limits to the produc
tive capacity of our farms, if we only study
out ways of expending our crops judicious
ly, and making the most of the manures
they will return to the soil. Sections of
country may be pointed out in Europe, not
naturally more favored for soil and climate
than our own, where the land has been cul
tivated for hundreds of years, and is now
more productive than at any former period,
and far more so, acre for acre, than the very
best virgin soils and lands of our own coun
try. Another thing deserving particular
consideration, land that is in high cultiva
tion, and is judiciously cropped, can be
kept at a high mark of fertility with ease,
as compared with making exhausted land
fertile. The very luxuriance of the crops
gives back a large mass of roots and stems
to the soil. Especially is this the case when
grass sward lias been allowed to form; so
that in breaking the sod for a new rotation
of crops, we can turn under many tons per
acre of matter fertilizing to tho land, con
tained in the roots and stems of tho sward
Then too, land in high condition is much
less injuriously affected by unfavorable pe
culiarilies of the season as to drouth or
moisture, cold or heat, than if it were in
poor tilth, and indeed in a good degree in
dependent of these peculiarities. In any
season it will pay a larger profit in propor
tion to what has been expended to obtain
the crop, than can be derived from exhaust
ed land.
In feeding out the gran corps pretty freely
on the farm, there will bo some years when
the growth of stock, the meats, the wool,
the dairy products, &c., into which tl e
grain has been converted, will sell high
enough to pay considerably more per bushel
for the grain than it would have brought
had It been sold off the farm; other years
the grain may perhaps bring a greater im
mediate income if sold off; but taking one
year with another, and considering the stea
dy improvement of the farm, where the
crops are expended upon it, there will be
more profit in feeding out the grain than in
selling it off. ,In a period, say of twelve or
twenty years, I am inclined to think that
seventy-five cents per bushel realised for
corn, for instance, fed out on the farm, and
the manure returned to the land, is as good
as one dollar per bushel realised by sending
it off to market for cash, and the farm rob
bed of an equivalent in manure for the com
thus sold.
Take, for instance, the whole amount or
number of bushels of grain of any kind
produced on an acre of land, or on die farm,
and place it in a pile together. It makes
only a small heap, even though the yield
per acre be a very large one. Yet that heap,
small as it is, contains a largg per cent, of
s the very essence of the fertility of the soil
that produced it, and has taxed the land far
more than if it had only produced the stalk
and leaf of the plant, or in other words, a
forage crop of any kind. This grain, fed
out with the hay and other crops, adds
wonderfully to the activity and fertilising
power of the farm yard manure, and great
ly quickens the soil to renewed efforts at
production. Then, again, by feeding out
the grain with the forage crops, and thus
making manure abounding in gases and
salts, you may compost much larger pro
portions of muck, rurf, the rich soils wash
ed into hallow places, or other materials
gathered up about the farm to swell the
manure heap, andjiave them all decompos
ed and sweetened and prepared to become
the food of plants, than you could properly
use it the cattle droppings were alone com
posed of the more lifeless and inactive
elements derived only from hay, straw and
other forage.

A MEDICAL REVOLUTION,
The World Unanimous!
II OLLO W A Y'S OINTMENT.
THE GREAT COUNTER IRRITANT!!
The virus of disease often makes ils way
to the internal organs through the pores of
the skin. This penetrating Ointment, melt
ing under the hand as it is rubbed in, is ab
sorbed through the same channels, and,
reaching the seal of inflamation, promptly
and invaiiably subdues it, whe her located
in the kid net s the liver, the lungs, or any
other important organ. Ii penetrates the
surface to the interior, through the countless
tubes that communicate with the skill, as
summer rain passes into the fevered earth,
diffusing its cool and regenerating influence.
SKIN DISEASES AND GLANDULAR
SWELLINGS.
Every species of exteiior irrilation is
quickly reduced by the ami inflammatory
I aciion ot this Oimmenl. Angty Eruptions,
such as sail Rheum, Erysipelas, Teller,
Ringworm, Scald Head, Nellie, Rush, Scab
ies, lich) &e., die out, to reitirn 110 more,
under this application. Hospital experi
ence in all parts of the World pioves its
infallibility in diseases of the skin, the mus
cles, the joints and the glands.
ULCERS, SORES, AND TUMORS.
The effect of ihis unrivalled external
remedy upon Scrofula, and oilier virutenl
ulcers mid soies, almost mnraculous. Ii
first discharges the poison which produces
sttppuralioo and ptood flesh, and Ihus the
cures which ils healing properiies afierwards

U'OUNS, BRUISES, BURNS, AND
SCALDS
In cases of Ihe Iracture of the bones/in
juries caused by steam explosions, Bruises,
Burns, Scalds, Rheumatism. Stiffness of the
Joints, and contraction of the sinews, i: is
employed and warmly recommended by
the faculty. This marvellous remedy has

Scrofula, or King's Evil,
is a constitutional disease, a corruption of the
blood, by which this fluid becomes vitiated,
fveak, and poor. Being in the circulation, it
pervades the whole body, anil may burst out
in disease on any part of it. No orgun is free
from its attacks, nor is there one which it may
hot destroy. The scrofulous taint i 9 variously
caused by mercuriul disease, low living, dis
brdercd or unhealthy food, impure air, filth
and filthy habits, the depressing vices, and,-
above all, by the venereal infection. What
ever be its origin, it is hereditary in the con
stitution, descending •' from parents to children
unto the third and fourth generation indeed,
it seems to bo the rod of Ilim who says, " I
will visit the iniquities of the fathers upon
their Children."
Its effects commence by deposition from the
blood of corrupt or ulcerous matter, which, in
the lungs, liver, and internal organs, is termed
tubercles; in the glands, swellings j and oh
the surface, eruptions or sores. This foul cor
ruption, which genders in the blood, depressed
the energies of life, so that scrofulous constitua
turns not only suffer from scrofulous com
plaints, but they have far less power to with
stand the attacks of other diseases'; conse
quently, vast numbers perish by disorders
which, although not scrofulous in their nature,
arc still rendered fatal by this taint in the
system. Most of the consumption which de
cimates the human family has its origin directly
in this scrofulous contamination; (bid many
destructive diseases of the liver, kidneys, brain,
and, indeed, of all the organs, arise from or
arc aggravated by the same cause.
One quarter of all our people are scrofulous j
their persons are invaded by this lurking in
fection, and their health is undermined by it.
To cleanse it from the system we must renovate
the blood by an alterative medicine, and in
vigorate it by healthy food and exercise/
Such a medicine wo supply in
AYER'S
Compound Extract of SaTsaparillay
the most effectual remedy which thy medical
skill of our times can devise for ttad every
where prevailing and fatal malady. It is com
bined from the most active remeiUals that have
been discovered for the expurgation of this foul
disorder from the hlood, and the rescue of the
system from its destructive consequences.
Hence it should be employed for the cure of
not only scrofula, but also those other affec
tions which arise from it, such as ERUVTITU
and SKIN DISEASES, ST. ANTHONY'S FIRS,
KOBE, or EUYSII'KI.AS, FIMFI.ES, PUSTULES*
BLOTCHES, BLAINS and BOILS, TUMORS, TETTER
and SALT RHEUM, SCALD HEAD, KfNOWorkM,
RHEUMATISM, SYPHILITIC and MERCURIAL DIS
EASES, DROPSY, DYSPEPSIA, DEBILITY, and,
indeed, ALL COMPLAINTS AHISINQ FROM Vrru-
TKD OR IMPURE BLOOD, The popular belief
in " impurity of the blood" is founded in truth,
for scrofula is a degeneration cf the blood. The
particular purpose and virtue of this Sarsapm
rilla is to purify and regenerate this vital fluid,
without which sound health is anpoesible in
contaminated constitutions,
Ayer's Cathartic Pills,
FOR ALL THE PURPOSES OF A FAMILY PHYSIO,
are so composed that disease within the range of
their action can rarely withstand or erade then*
Their penetrating properties search, and clomnse,'
and invigorate every portion of the human organ-'
ism, correcting its diseased action, and restoring
its healthy vitalities. As a consequence of thes*
properties, the invalid who is bowed down with
pain or physical debility is astonished to find hi*
health or energy restored by a remedy at once so
simple and inviting.
Not only do they cure the every-day complaints
of every body, but also many formidable and
dangerous diseases. The agent below named is
pleased to furnish gratis my American Almanac,
containing certificates of their cures and directions
for their use in the following complaints : Co*tiv+>
ness, Heartburn, Headache arising from disordered
Stomach, Nausea, Indigestion, Pain in and Morbid
Inaction of the Bowels, Flatulency, Loss of Appe
tite, Jaundice, and other kindred complaints,
arising from a low state of the body or obstruction
of its functions.

tion, nnd for the relief of Consumptive
Patients in advanced stages of the
disease.
So wide is the field of its usefulneu and so nu
merous ere the cases of its cures, that almost
every section of country abounds in persons pub
licly known, who have been restored from alarming
and even desperate disease, of the lungs by its
use. When oneo tried, its superiority over every
other medicine of its kind is too apparent to escape
observation, and where its virtues are known, the
public no longer hesitate what antidote to employ
for the distressing and dangerous affections of tho
pulmonary organs that are incident to our climate.
While many inferior remedies thrust upon the
community have failed and been discarded, this
has gained friends by every trial, conferred benefit*
on the afllicted they can never forget, and pro
duced cures too numerous and too remarkable to
be forgotten.
