Profits cfPocltry.
Poultry as a source of profit, is gen
erally undervalued by most farmers,
for, from thchap-hazard style thoy are
kept in, porhnps there is not much
profit nor would there be in any oth
er farm stock if no more care or at
tention was devoted to them than
lucre is usually bestowed upon poul
try. If ouly the multitude of insects
destroyed by poultry, (so injurious to
the crops of the farmer) are consid
ered, they arc of great value, while
their guano, if properly saved, is
worth what it costs to feed them.
Farmers arc too prouc to conclude
that "chickens cat their heads oDT,"
when, if they haiLkcpt a correct ac
count of all the food furnished, the
liumbor of eggs laid,chickcns sold, and
those eaten by their families, they
would discover evidence sufficient to
convince them that their prejudice
was without reason or foundation.
"When poultry have to roost in trees,
scratch in a neighbor's garden for a
living, and are not considered worthy
ofattontion, they arc truly of not
much account. Commou fowls, which
may possess good laying qualities, de
rive those good traits from some strain
of pure-bred fowls, but if allowed to
intermingle promiscuously,will event
ually become so crossed that the lay
ing propensity is destroyed or bred
out. It would be the same with pure
bred herd-book cattle unless kept pure.
There arc sovcral varieties of pure
bred fowls that arc very profitable as
ogg producers, some laying as many
as eighteen dozen in one year. At the
average price of thirty cents per doz
en, this amounts to 5.10 per hen.
This is not mere surmising, for I have
had lions that laid twenty-one dozen
in a year.
If farmers who think poultry does
not pay. -would give their feathered
stock to their sous or daughters, with
permission to enjoy and own any
profit that might ticcruc from keeping
thorn, they would soon be convinced
that "there's somothing in it." Poul
try rearing, in some parts cf the coun
try, by ladies, is indeed quite exten
sively carried on.
There is certainly no more health-promoting
exercise than that afforded by
caring for, or having the management
of a flock of poultry, and if the flock is
one of any of the pure breeds, there is
in addition to the exhilarating influ
ence, an enthusiasm that causes what
might otherwise be considered a task,
to become a pleasure, and therefore
profit and pleasure arc happily com
bined. A young lady in Bothel,Pcnn
sylvauia, during the year 1874, kept a
strict account of all the expenditures
for feed, etc., for her yard of fowls,
and at the regular market prices for
eggs and chickens, she cleared, above
all expenses, three hundred and sixty
dollars, besides having more stock on
baud than she started with. Is not
this an iuccntivc sufficient to awaken
au intorcst among the numerous fail
readers of the Farmer in favor of gal
liuaccous stock ? It is certainly worthy
of emulation. Farm and Garden.
Hew to Cook Green Peas.
Wash aud put them into enough
boiling water to ucaily cover them,
add one tcaspoonful of sugar, a lump
of baking soda the size of a large pea,
to every quart of peas, when tender;
add a good lump of butter and salt to
taste. Send to the tablo with the water
in which they are boiled. Omit the
-sugar when cooking the CLampIon of
England variety. I would suggest to
my "city cousins" who are unable to
procure peas fresh-picked from the
vines to try this recipe, and I doubt
not they will pronounce it delicious.

Overworking.
A lady writing to an exchange says :
"I waut to say a lew words to farm
ers' wives who complain so much of
being overworked, for I, too, belong
to this class. Is it not to a great ex
tent our own fault that we arc always
overworked ? I think the great cause
of it lies in two things : First,wc Utiiik
more of a little monoy that it would
take to hire a suitable) person to help
us in busy times than wo do of our
health. We do not consider how es
sential it is that mothers should re
main here with their little ones as long
as it is God's will, and that health is
worth moro to mothers than money.
Then again, in the secoud place, the
work in many families is not as equal
ly divided as it ehould be between the
male and female members of the fami
ly. Each must do his or her share, or
some one will bo ovcrwoiked; and I
think iti most cases it is the wife's own
fault, because of her disposition and
management of her family, if she be
overworked. If, on her part,she is al
ways plcasaut, kind and loving, and
always ready to lend a helping hand
to her husband when she can, there
are few men but what will be just as
rcadv and willing to do what they can
to tako burdens from her shoulders
and to lessen her care3. Every mem
ber of a farmer's family, that is old
enough, should know how to milk a
cow. Then if the men have the most
time ihcy should do the milking, es
pecially in bad weather. But when
the men are very busy, and the weath
er is good, aud a woman is so situated
that she can go out to milk, then lot
her show her kindness by milking the
cows. If the wife and mother has the
proper love and respect of her hus
band aud sons, they will not allow her
to milk the cows or carry in wood in
bad weather. And if she has not their
proper lovo and respect, then it must
surely be her own fault. Boys that
arc taught to be kind to their mothers
and sisters will be kind to their wives.
Bo careful, thou, all ye who complain
of being overworked. Be careful to
train up your children right, that
when they tako their places as men
and women in the world, we will not
hear the continued cry of being dis
satisfied and overworked, but we shall
witness everywhere happy, cheerful
farmers' families."
Effect of Drouth oa Trees.
In an article under the above cap
tion that recently appeared in the
Country Gentleman, Mr. M. B. Batc
ham, alter saj ing some sensible things,
as he usually does us?s te following
language : "Keeping in mind the fact
that thu natural position of the root
lets of trees, like those of corn and
potatoes, is in the suiface soil, say four
to six inches in depth, where they can
get tho benefit of the rains and gases
of the atmosphere, and remembering
that most of these feeders die oil nat
urally when growth is fiuished in the
autumn, to be renewed in the spring,
we can see the importance of stirring
and enriching the soil of orchards, if
at all hard or poor and especially the
folly of letting orchards be occupied
vi ith grass in regions where drouths
are liable to occur." (Gracious what
a sentence J) To one or two ideas iu
the above extended sentence I feel com
pelled to object. There seems to bo a
contradition in the statement that the
feeding roots of trees run near the sur
face of the soil, and that, as ho says,
in another sentence, "good tillage is
essential to wholesome growl h." If
"good tillage," which destrojs all
roots within four to six inches of the
surface, "is essential to wholesome
growth," these roots so destroyed are
not necessary to growth. But if, on
the other hand, these roots are neces
sary to wholesome growth, that course
of tillage that necessarily results iu
their destruction cannot but be inju
rious to the tree. Tho presouce of
grass in the soil probably does take a
portion of the moisture ami plant food
from the roots of tho trees, but this
certainly cannot injure the tree more
than the destruction of roots them
selves, as is necessarily the ca;c iu the
caso of good tillage.
A Gooi Formula for Manure.
The following has been tried and is
highly recommended by Mr. Royal
Smith, of Millinglon, Mass. On grass
lands and potatoes the effect was ad
mirable :
1. Two cords of fresh cow dung.
2. Ten bushels of plaster.
3. Five bushels of salt.
4. 120 pounds of sulphate of potash.
The mode of preparing this compost
is described as follows : "It was com
posed of about two cords of good green
cow dung, made iu the stable, under
cover, mingled with ten bushels of
plaster and five bushels of salt. Tho
heap was cut over carefully four times
during the summer, the lumps beat
out, and the whole thoroughly inter
mingled, aud the last time it was cut
over, 250 pounds of German potash
salts, said to contain GO per cent, of
potash, were also mingled with it."
As a top dressing to grass it was ap
plied one bushel to a square rod ; on
early potatoes, a pint to a hill.
Eocn for More Sheep.
Last year we paid to foreign coun
tries fifty millions of dollars for wool
en goods and eleven millions of dol
lars for unmanufactured goods. When
we have in the country twenty mil
lions moro sheep than we now have we
shall only produce what wool wc use ;
and vet there is no countrv on earth
where it would seem sheep could be
raised so profitably as in tho United
States. But we arc coming every year
nearer to supplying our own inaikcts
with the wool they demand. Iu 1875
tho wool clip of the country was near
ly 200,000.000 pounds, while in 18C0 it
was only 05,000,000.
Thomas Mchan lays down the fol
lowing rule : The proper distance to
sow or plant anything is so that the
roots of tho plants, whatever they arc,
should about touch each other. Thus
a wheat plant requires for its best de
velopment to be about four or six
inches from another plant, to have for
its own self to occupy about sixteen
to thirty-six square inches of surface.
" I'll bet a sheep," said old Meredith
to his better half, "that our boy Otho
is going crazy; for he's grinuin' at the
plow, he's grinnin' at the barn, and
he's grinuin' fo himself wherever ho
goes."
"Sho, old man, you don't knowuoth
in' ; the critter's got a lovo letter."
Lincoln, Neb., has a young ladies'
brass band, and tho girl ivhocan make
the most noise is accounted the best
fellow.
Six Hawaiian beauties are on their
way to Brigham Young, regardless of
the race, color and previous condition
