FARM AND FIRESIDE.
Indlt ideality and Selection. None of our readers needs to be told that there are no two animals, even of the same breed, exactly alike?the tact is so apparent that it fails to excite eith? er the interests orstutly which its im? portance would seem to warrant, for if we are not mistaken, these individual differences may and should, he made the basis for a great anel rapid improve? ment of our live stock. It is not extern? al characters alone that we refer, but rather to internal tuuetions, the activity of which decide the profit which an ani? mal is to bring to its owner. With the same food, the same ration, the same surroundings, one of several animals will digest a large per cent., another will make more live weight from a giv? en amount digested, aud still another will furnish a greater proportion of dressed carcass. Of a given number of cows under the same conditions, one will be conspicuous for her large yield of milk, another for the quautity of butter which she produces, and still another lor the amount of casein. Consequent? ly, among a given lot of animals we Find some that are very profitable, oth? ers that scarcely pay for their keeping, and still others that are a source of cer? tain and contiuual loss. If a merchant Cuds that he is paying more for a certain line of goods at one house than they eau be bought for at an? other, he would be considered an incom? petent business mau if he continued to buy at the former establishment ; it is a ' part of his business to get kis goods at t'.ie lowest market price, aud inattention in this respect often makes the difference b.-tween success and failure. And is it any less the business of a farmer to see that he gets his butter and cheese, bis wool, beef, mutton and porkirom such animals as furnish it at the lowest cost? It is self-evident that the greatest profit from animals can only be made by those who know at what price each one furn? ishes its products, who are particular to keep only the most profitable individu? als, and who understaneT and practice the most certaiu methods of obtaining such animals. It Is not necessary to keep an intri? cate system of accounts to discover the profits yielded by individual animals,nor does it involve serious labor. Iu almost every farmer's family there is some young person who would be interested in kecpiug a record of such experiments, aud to whom the experience thm taiucd would be of immense value in alter years. If the relative profit o: the cows in a butter dairy is to be determin? ed, the ft.oJ ut' each tl oriel be carefully weighed and measured, aud their milk, for a certain number of days, churned irately. It is then an easy matter to compute the butter yielded per day. the c-pst of food per day, and the coal of the butter per pound. < If course, the time since calviug should be taken into account, aud the mistake should not be made of limiting all the animals to a de? termined quantity of food, for butt i r is not manufactured from air. and it is those animals which have the capacity to cat, digest and transform the quantity of food, which arc the most profitable. Our breediug stock, above all, - be selected according to such prii If breeding mutton-sheep or hogs, lambs and pigs should le regularly weighed once a month, and their weights record? ed ; if it is a ram or boar that is to be selected, we should, when they are from one-half to two-thirds grown, in addi? tion to the above weighing, select three or four of the most promising, weigh their lood, and determine the actual gain fora given quantity of food We may rest assured that by following this plan we will soon have a uniform tlock or herd, and one that is capable of making the most of the conditions t?> which we subject them ; and- no one can doubt that the profit from animals bred m this manner would be far in advance of what it. wouln have been bad no such care been practiced. This is practical ?election. No farm? er can afford to neglect it ; aud eral adoption would make au incalcula? ble addition to the value of our animals. and to the profits of our agriculture?an addition that would make all the differ ence between an unremuncrativc busi? ness on the oue hand, and a highly profitable one on the other. Crystallizing (.rams. Dissolve one and one-fourth pound? of alum iu one quart of water by heat? ing and stirring, set off until cooled to 'blood-beat.' then dip in a small band ful of grass, for a moment and take out; if not quite as you would like.dip If the solution should be a little too warm when you begin, ?t will soon cool. It must be watched clasely, as one ought to be able to dip three or four bunches of grass before robeatind the solution. Heat as many times as desir? ed and let each succeding bunch remain a few moments louger at each dipping. as the alumn decretes. After obtaining all tho white crytals you care for add a very little indago or other coloring material, that you may have a yariety of coloi b, After all this, one can add more water and heat th*: mixture, then drain through o clotn.anel use for children's stocking yarn or tar pet rags, if you wish to color red, and do not wish to throw away the alum. Some grasses are much prettier for crys talizing than others, but this ran be told by experience only. If 1 knew the names of the many wild graeses of our State,?which I think are more interest? ingly beautiful thau those I have seen in any other State, I could tell what kind arc best for that purpose. I.how? ever, reject'timothy'?not wild?wheat. and the wild grasses which resemble wheat, and do not often try oats. Then are several kiuds which resemble Brisa maxim, some of the largest of which are exceedingly lovely crystahzed,while the smaller cues are marvels of beauh when colored and mixed with the form er. Grasses should always be well dri? ed beforehand for this purpose, anr> all the blade? removed at the time of dii pug. as one will break many stems f left until dry. Crop rrospfttt. 'What will the harvest be'/' is at all times an interesting question to the far? mer : but especially so at this season when the attention paiil to the gathcr iug of the crops in each section, natur? ally begets a desire to know their condi? tion elsewhere. Agricultural statistics collected from every part of the coun? try give ample data for an approximate estimate of the yield of the various crops during the present year. Of the 120 million acres under the plow in the United States, 30 million acres were sown to wheat this year, an increase over the area sown to wheat last year, of fifteen per cent, for winter and eighteen per cent, for spring wheat. Of the entire yield from this area, about four-fifths arc produced by twelve state?. namely, Minnesota, Iowa, California. Missouri, Kansas, Wisconsin, Ohio, Il? linois, Indiana, Pennsylvania, Michi? gan, and Tennessee. A medium crop from 30 million acres would be 300 mil liou bushels ; but the present will be more than a medium crop. At thirteen bushels per acre the yield would be 390 million bushels, and probably it will not fall short of this amoun'.. Dut plac? ing it at the low ligure of 350 million bushels, ii millions will be needed for seed, and 235 millions for home con? sumption, leaving a surplus of at least 70 millious for exportation. Of com. the great cereal crop of the country, there arc under cultivation nearly 50 milliou acres, or about four tenths of all the arable land in the na? tion. Of this area Illinois alone has nine million acres and Wisconsin five millions. It is too soon yet to predict the yield of the present crop, but out West much oi that planted early, rotted in the ground, or if up before the advent of storms and frost, a great deal of it has suffered severely, particularly en heavy soils, un which much of it is stunted and yellow. On the better drained land?, however, and ou those well cultivated, the growth is vigorous and the outlook highly promising. In the South, also, a larger area than usual has been sown to corn, and there an early and very favorable stand has been obtained. While the average relation of the yield to the exportation of wheat is about twenty per cent., only from three to five per cent, of the corn pro? duced here is exported, and the price of the latter, therefore, depends much more directly than that ci the former on the ratia between domestic demand and supply. The impetus given to cattle feeding, by the exportation of meat and live stock, will do far more towards keeping up the price of corn than any increase in the exportation of maize or corn meal, although this too has been slowly augmenting. This increase, however, .rcely desirable, as it can never amount to any considerable part of the crop, and there is greater profit, and much greater farm economy in the ship meat of meat, lard, cheese, butter, wool, and other concentrated products of maize, than in the exportaticu ol the grain itself. Since 1800, the ares under corn has increased twenty million acres, and this jear the prospect is for a fair lather than for an unusually good crop. tlonie Department.

Girls should early learn to purchase materials for their "own cloth? ing. Parents can advise them at the start, but it will be a good plan for irirls to learn to rely on their own judgment. The purchases can be talked over after they are made. Let your daughter. with a little advice, cut up a few yards of calico and make aprons an<l dresses, bed-quilt?, eveu If there is a little- trasto and home poor fits. She will be likely to sec her own mistakes aud profit by them. I.?-t her make some cakes and bread, and broil some meat ami pop some corn, no matter if she does bare to throw seme into the swill pail. It is better to make a few small mistakes while young, in acquiring ?ui education, than to grow up without experience.? They must learn some time, or make great blunders during a good portion o? their lives, when left to rely ou them? selves. In many respects, children arc not truste?! enough. They are ''bo too much.
