The following are two of the principal reasonsjwhy some farmers raise cobs with but little corn upon them, aud but one ear to the stalks : First, because the seed is not properly selected; and secondly, because that part of the ear that should be planted is shelled off- and cast aside. Seed corn should be selected by going into the field before the corn is gathered, and where two ears are found upon a stalk, and have come to perfection, the arger and better ear of the two should be pulled off, with the husk, upon it, and so on till a sufficient quantity is gathered. iet then! then be tied together and hung t up, or put in a . ary pince, secure irora mice and rats. The corn should be per fectly ripe before it is gathered. Seed corn selected and preserved in this way is sure to come up; and if this 'plan is pursued from year to year, there can be had from two to three ears to the stalk instead of one. In the next place the whole ear should be shelled, together and planted, instead of 'shelling off each end and planting the middle of the ear only, as is the plan generally practised by the most of farmers.!;.' The only , reason that I can see why this is done is because their fathers did so." By pursuing the above plans from . year to year, there can not only be had two or three ears to the stalk, but the entire cob, will be filled with corn, even around the. small end, S": I have the experience of some of -the best and argest farmers in Tippecanoe county, and am trying: tne Barae- experiments myseu. Corn is the principal crop in Indiana; and. though it is easily raised, as,'the soil and climate is adapted to it, yet; some farmers raise light , crops owing to their doing as. their fathers diL ? : Two farmers had corn in one field near me last year.- mere was bnt a turning I row between them, the soil the same, and one had about two-thirds more corn to the acre than tne other. - Tne reason was, the one selected, shelled, planted and cul- tivated his corn as his'father did. The other selected, shelled, planted ahd tended his corn upon scientific principles. The atter raised large, heavy corn, though the season was very dry,' ' . . B. F. B.

Keeping Milk from Souring. - ; We have seen it recommended in a number ft our ' exchanges, to use; little soda in sweet milk, for- the purpose of preventing it becoming sour, during very uuu tucr, uu p...j .u muuuci storms, v We cannot but think that this is far from' being . a commendable plan. The host way to preserve, milk is to keep it Ah clean vessels in a cool dry airy place, LWhen milk becomes sour, the cream should at once be skimmed off for churning into butter.

Tar, a Remedy for Horse Distemper. Thomas W. Ladd,'of Smithfield, Jeffer son county, Ohio,, writes the Uhio Jbarmer that he has found a remedy and cure for " distemper " in horses. He says: " Having three colts sick with this tuS' ease, an . experienced farmer told , me to use tar, and he thought that the sick colts would Boon recover, and that those who had not taken the disease would not have it at. all,' or but lightly. :" I followed his direction, to . my entire satisfaction, I gave the colts, morning and evening as much" as I could readUy get into tneir months with a paddle After, a. few api plications the sick ,ones; commenced run- ning at the nose, their appetites retumod, and in a short time they had entirely fej Grained what they had lost from ; disease The others never took it to my knowledge!

JDOESTICKS' LAST. Receipt1 of an Unexpected Tivor. Brookltn,- April 1 5; 1 8 5 5 . A I have been the recipient of an unex pected favor. -1 have here publicly to acknowledge the receipt of a rare bird of unexampled dimensions a Shanghai Rooster with double teeth, which has been presented to me by our friend the "Young un." When I desire to speak of the various beauties of this feathered pledge of friendship, language can't come to time. His legs rival the grand street liberty pole, in length, ; size and symmetry in fact, he exhibits rather a strong tendency to run to legs; his plumage is variegated and generally shaggy, and his disposition courageous; he has an eye like a hen-hawk, a tail like the butend of a feather-duster, and a voice like a rhinoceros with the whooping-cough; he is perfect in every point; he combines in a single expression, the elegance and euphony of the ancient Latin tongue, and the expressive intensity of the more modern Bowery idiom; he is literally "gallus." . He is a present from Burnham, Profes sor No."l of Henology, and such a pro ficiency in universal humbug that he ranks only second to the Bridgeport Fejee Prince Burnham, who made one fortune by selling "purebred" Shanghai stock, "and another by showing up the tricks of the trade, and the mysteries of Roosterdom, a blue covered book, with gilt edges, and who has now left the hen trade, only keep ing on hand a ..few chicks of .warranted pure blood, which he prescribes at high prices to any anxious individuals who haven't. yet had the "fever "(a popular epidemic, price $1; can be caught at any book store.) ' How they ever got my bird from Bos ton to New York, I am uncertain; but I have the authority of the engineer for stating that they switched- the locomotive off on a side track, and made him draw the passenger train. Got him home for fear he would ; stray away in the night; anchored him in the barnyard to a 'stone smoke-house, with a chain cable. -'-Was waked up in the morning by a sound like an arniy' of tom-cats, , in . league with legion of amateur bull frogs listened heard ' it " againthought my time had come covered my head np with the bed clothes was soon startled by the sudden disappearance of the , same looked ud and saw Mr. Shanjrhai had poked his head in - at the third story window, . aud was pulline the - covers off me with a vengeance; he made a grab at my leg, but I hit him with a boot-jack and sue ceeded in impressing upon him the idea that he was trespassing kept out of his reach during the day, and. watched him from a-distance; he has to get down on his knees to eat, inasmuch as his neckins't more than half" as long as his legs. But I admire his beauties, though I can't con ceive what he's made for;' and I can bear ample testimony to the excellence of his appetite. sy On the whole, I am delighted, and you may express to the donor my sin cere obligations. ...... , '.
