this people d6&hotulive aud-'learn.
Forty years ago, when railroads were
only projected, and the great high:
ways over which hundreds of millions
of tons of freight are now carried
every year existed only upon paper in
the form of preliminary maps, it was
objected agniust them that they would
destroy the horeef ,audHdqh J'ibm
useless, thus depriving the farmers of
a very profitable part of their biteiuffl.
But what a mistake was made! In
1810 there were alwut 3,000,000 horses
in the United States. In 1850 there
were 4,330,719; iu 18C0, 0,249,174; in
1870, iu spite of the enormous losses
of the war, 7,145,370; iu 1880,10,357,
488; and it is estimated that the iiuin
bcr now in existence is nearly 16,000
000. And yet wo have over 1.10,000
miles of railroad, costinir about 7.
000,000,000, over which freight is pass
ed from town to town and from place
to placo over our vast territory. It Is
interesting to note tho increase in the
number of horse during the last ten
yearn, berauso that is the period dur
ing which the building of railroads
has been most actively carried on and
the volume of business done on them
has expanded no enormously. This
fact may bo accepted as a proof that
tho extension of railroads actually cre
ates a demand for hordes to facilitate
their busiucsH, and that as mechanical
facilities for business mid transporta
tion increase the necessity for working
horses increasen correspondingly.
Itut there is another fact which bears
upon thN question, and this is that
increase of business, such ns has been
developed so prodigiously during tho
past twenty jears, has been accom
panied by a vast production of wealth
and its distribution among all classes
of society. Willi this wealth have
come habits of luxury, ami one of the
most marked exhibitions of luxurious
living is the use of Hue horses for road
and driving purposes. And thus there
has arisen a demand for a class of
horses, tho best of which arc valued
very highly, and almost beyond limit
excepting the ability or lavishness of
the purchaser, ami tho breeding and
rearing of which not only oilers at
tractive profits, but occasionally prizes
that equal iu value those which tempt
the miner to abandon the comforts of
homo and bury himself in wild and
savage solitude iu pursuit of gold or
And yet the very same mistake Is
made to-day by those much interested,
which, as has been pointed out, has
been made any time these 40 years
past, and in spite of the facts-above
presented. Iu spite, too, of the fact
that while a steer 3 or 4 years old sells
for Cor 7 conts a pound on the hoof,
It is a very poor horse indeed that
docs not bring 15 or 'JO cents a pouud
at tho same ngc, aud but one of mod
erate value which cannot be sold with
case for 35 to 60 cents a pound, while
not at all rarely as much as a dollar a
Kuud is readily paid for nn extra ani
mal or a well matched pair. The same
is true of mules, and more so perhaps
as regards the moro desirable working
animals, for a stanch, heavy mule is
worth '25 or 60 per cent, moro than a
horse of similar character, nutl it costs
J5 or 60 per cent, less to rear.
No doubt tho most profitable and
comfortable branch of agricultural
business that exists to-day is the
breeding and rearing of horses .and
mules, and it may bo said tho ucxt
best is the breeding and rearing of
cattle for beef. Tho farmer who goes
Into stock-rearing has tho world for
his market. Tho following figures
may be considered Iu this respect :
rearing and training through several
generations, wc may make just such
horses' as we desire or which maybe
found tho most profitable fo'r;disposal.
Aud to succeed in reaching the ends
that arc to be aimed at and to insure
success, the young aud rising farmer

It is curious to observe how tho
military and political prejiouderancc
of the ditlcrcut nations seem to be
measured by the number of horses;
how tlio weakest European nation, but
once tho most powerful, has but half a
million horses, when iu its prime its
horses were renowned for number
and excellence. Hut it is equally sig
nificant that in respect to this poverty
of horses this country also exhibits au
Instance of what has been pointed out,
namely, that railroads aud horses have
a most remarkable relationship, aud
that as the former are more largely
developed, tho latttcr Increase in au
ever advancing railo. Hut as Europe
increases in prosperity horses aro re
quired, aud it is to this country that
tho supply is looked for. Already a
very largo number of horses nre cx
portcdirom here to Europe, and this
demand cauuot fall to increase. So
that we may look not only to our own
homo demand, but to the foreign coun
tries for our markets, which will be as
permanent as our better facilities for
producing tho needed supply remains.
Perhaps enough has been said to re
move auv doubt lest a farmer may
rear a few more colts thau he could
flud sale for. If a doubt should still
linger tho doubter might becomo sat
isfied by v'slting a city market In pur
suit of a desirable work-horse. lie
would find tho prices quoted to be
from $225 to $300, and only inferior
animals offered at less than theso rates ;
while carriage horses and matched
roadsters bring easily $500 to $600
each for tho former and $1,000 to
$1,500 for good pairs of the latter.
But breeding horses is a skilled art.
The choice of parents requires knowl
edge and experience. One will bo very
apt to go astray unless ho knows by
experience, aided by native tact and
judgment, what tho produce of a union
between any two ahimals will prob
ably be. "Tho best moa make mis
takes;" and this is truoiu breeding
horses. Tho most successful efforts in
breeding horses in our past history
have been made iu the South, and to

with a.wpoter plow, thus , givjng the
laud another working and making it
in good condition to receive tlic seed,
which can bo sown with a common
seed drill at the rate of about three
pints to the acre.
"Now as to the cultivation which is
necessary: the more work it receives
tho sooner it will be oil" the ground
and ready for market. When the
plants reach the height of four or live
inches it should have a good plowing,
and immediately after the hoes should
be put in to chop it out, leaving some
two or three inches for a hill undis
turbed. In two or three weeks it
should again receive a good, close
plowing and final hoeing, when the
hills left at the first hoeing should be
cleaned out to one or two at the most,
choosing the most vigorous, of course,
which would leave the stalks about
every eight inches. At the last plow
ing, which should be two or three
weeks later, according to the judg
ment of the farmer, the dirt should bo
thrown well up to the plant. A thrcc
hocd cultivator has been found very
serviceable by tho writer in taking
care of the crop.
"The next thing to bo considered is
the mode of saving or harvesting the
crop, and any carelessness or misman
agement at this point is very liable to
take away all tho profits of the fore
going cultivation. The first point
with the manufacturer is color. It
matters not bow good a growth the
crop may be, if it is red from too long
standing in the field or dark from
mould and wet its value is damaged.
It should be saved while green, and
cured with a view of preserving it iu
that color. Just as soon as tho milk
iu tho seed thickens and becomes
doughy and starchy, cut it, leaving six
inches of tho stalk with the brush. It
should be gathered and threshed the
same day as cut, as the weight of tho
seed will soon cause it to heat and
stain tho brush if allowed to lie in
piles nuy length of time. It should
then be placed on racks or scaffolds,
not over four inches thick in the lay
ers, with a space six or eight inches
between layers, in an open shed or
shelter, care being taken to keep it
dry. It should- be shaken up in the
layers once or twice in two or three
days, according to tho weather, so as
to insure a free passage of air. Iu
two weeks of fair weather It is ready
to be baled and sent to market."

Mr. Asa S. Curtis, of Stratford,
Conn., has tried au experiment iu ap

be of interest to all those who raise
apples for their own use, or the mar
ket Having an orchard which pro
duced fruit only on every other year,
and hearing that the trees could be
made to change their bearing season
60 that every year might lie fruitful,
ho selected a healthy young apple tree
eight years ago, aud for four success
ive bearing seasons' carefully rublcd
off every bud ns fast as it appeared.
For the first three seasons this made
no apparent difference, the tree omit
ting all blossoms the next season, but
putting out its blooms again on the
regular year. Ijist year Mr. Curtis
repeated the experiment for the fourth
time, and this season the tree appears
to have given up its old habit, and to
have concluded to let its owner have
his own way, for it is in full bloom at
last in the "off season." If a part of
tho trees of an orchard can thus be
made to bear ono year and the others
tho next, there need bo no "off year"
at all for tho applo crop, so far as the

cerned, aud this fact is worth the at

A correspondent of tho Garden
writes as follows :
"Tho best and safest insecticide I
have ever met with is nicotine soap
which, from containing tho active
properties of tobacco with other in
gredicnts, is fatal to insects, and has a
marvclouslv cleansing effect on the
bark of trees, which it frees from all
parasites in a very short tinio. For
using on tho stems of vines and peach
trees it is quite unrivalled, as with a
brush and a slight scrub, followed di
rectly after by a dash of water from
the syringe, it leaves them bright and
polished, free from all slimy deposits
and other conferva;. At one time
peach trees and vines used to be
daubed with a coat of liquid clay and
other mixtures to smother scale ; but
with nicotine soap there is no need of
this, aud any one who is troubled with
that insect, or red spider, or tbrip, has
only to apply the wash to be rid of
tlic pest. If on the young shoots of
peaches, the best way is to syringe It
at a strength of four ounces to the
gallon of water, and at a temperature
of 80 or 100 degrees, aad immediately
afterward the stems of the trees should
be scrubbed and the whole rinsed off
