It has been our opinion for some years past, that farmer, and breeders of horses in too little attention to walking - SSMSfcSj'je > -l.^B -' ■ j 1 ; ; £ ’ BhL SH ’ M. |:; 1 ■ lip ■ ■ . - .

Wo would get much better prices for the ■-■.is" •*- i"i r /v - •>— ~ : y '-a—a for cv riage and road purposes if we cultivated ■A the walk. Every farmer's boy knows that cap do a hotter job of work—plowing, harrowing, ur working corn—with a fast walking team than with a slow one. The dirt flies livelier, and it actually takes less H expenditure of |iower to plow a furrow H fast than slow, just as every one knows B there is less absolute expenditure of force hk mure in iunn iinwiuu ■ when he eons up stairs at a lively rate than H at a slow rate. The saving on a farm when V the horses walk three miles an hour, or H even when they walk two miles and a half, is twenty per cent., or in other words the H fast team can rest a whole day in the week ■ and yet do as much work as the slow team H —do it easier and do it better. While H every effort has been made to increase the W speed of the trotter, the draft horse men I have been working for pounds, with little I; regard either for muscle or walking-speed. It is a very great mistake to suppose that (he draft horse cannot lie trained to walk We have been breeding to a rehenm for four years that of!.-It walks i miles in an hour and fifty minutes, a hilly road, ami hi- rolls are all rapid They are not ns laru'e as some, they are large enough to do any kind *■<of farm-work easily and rapidly. This rapid movement has been of very great importance to us in the hist ten days, when it was desirable to get the corn ground in the beat possible order in the shortest possi- H bio time. Life is too short to spend it in ■ poking along after a team that cannot get ■ their heads up. The lazy man to whom exertion jp a burden actually works harder than the brisk, rapid worker. Of course ■ |Le are not advocating the trotter or the ■ Jtoadster as the model farm horse. They BB /may be too fiery—have too much of the trotting instinct for farm work. The farm should have the patience and the persistence devil, .jo d l.y ages of in that eapa.-ily. fa! lie have the tirelessness "f m .vein. 1.1 that ma- HH.s him to do it with the leai-i expenditure effort and "f Ids master's lime, and do in the host manner. We used t.. handle kinds of teams when a ln.y. and always we could do the best work with a team that bad the strength to do the work easily at a steady, lively gait. They turned a better furrow, broke more clods with the barrow, and did a groat deal better job of work in the corn field, as well as on the road. Farm Houses as Banks. From Chicago Times. The murder of a farmer and his wife near Janesville, Wis., recently for the pur pose of obtaining the money hoarded in their house is only one of several hundred similar crimes that have been committed in this country during the past few years. A month rarely passes that an account of the robbery of some farm-house or the murder of some of its inmates is not published. A prosperous or wealthy farmer who makes a practice of keeping large sums of money or other valuables in his house generally lets the fact be known to the public. He is fond of stating that he has no confidence in banks, depositories, or other institutions designed for the safe keeping of money. Ha advertises to the world that he is cus todian of his own valuables, and that his house, ordinarily his bed-chamber, is the I place where he keeps them. By so doing L he invites robbers and burglars, who rarely k hesitate to take life if it becomes necessary to do so in order to secure booty or to pre- vent being captured. A house-breaker or dinarily carries a set of burglar’s tools in one hand and a revolver in the other. He no more hesitancy about using the lat former. ■ 4- no ponderous gates of iron, no deep moat filled with water, no bridge that can be drawn at night or in times of danger, no protected place in which armed sentinels can stand, no alarm-bell for calling assist ance. A farm-house generally stands at quite a distance from other dwellings. It is not constructed with a view of affording security to life and property against rob bers or assassins. It is ordinarily built of wood, and has numerous doors aud win dows that are easily opened from the out side. It rarely ever contains a fire and burglar proof vault or safe. It is not pro vided with means for summoning assist ance. No person is fluployed to watch it while the members of the family arc asleep. A dog may be kept for the purpose of giv ing an alarm in ease strangers approach in the night, but the chances arc that the creature harks so often and on such slight provocation that the inmates of the house, if they are sound sleepers, arc not aroused by its barking in times of danger. Such a building is not a fit depository for valuables of any kind. It is liable to be burned down, and can lie easily entered by anyone who has the courage and dispo sition to do so. As a rule, it is senseless to offer resistance. Supposing that there arc firearms in the house, the chances arc that they can not be effectually used. Persons who are aroused from deep sleep by burglars are not in a condition to fire rifles and revolvers. They will be dazed, while their unwelcome visitors will be ac tive and on the look-out. A motion or a noise on the part of the sleepers will bo almost sure to bring the burglars to their sides, when the pistol, dirk, or gag will be used. The cases of torturing persons in farm-houses with a view of making them disclose where money and other valuables arc secreted arc numerous. In repeated eases robbers after plundering a house and tying its inmates have set it on fire, with the intention of destroying all evidence of their crimes. The instances where the in mates of a farm-house have been able to defend themselves against determined burg lars, to shoot them, or to frighten them away arc exceedingly rare. Every year when the time arrives for starting fires in stoves outside the kitchen we hear of large quantities of bank bills, deposited in stove-pipes and ovens, being destroyed. They were placed in these re ceptacles for safe keeping by some member of the family, who neglected to inform the others, or who at the time of lighting the fire forgot aboutit. The grain-bin and corn-crib are sometimes used as depositor ies of the money saved by farmers. They often serve a useful purpose, but occasion ally the money is devoured by farm ani mals or vermin, or is hauled off to market with the grain, The practice of burying money in the cellar or gardetuor of secret ing it in some crevice between the walls and plastering of the house is far more common. In some cases the money is se creted so well that it is never found by the person who hid it, or by his relatives for whom it was saved. Sudden death, mental derangement, or loss of memory may pre vent the treasure from being found. In many old country towns there arc legends about money that was lost in this way. In ease a fire occurs in a dwelling, the money secreted in it is generally consumed. That a farm-house is a very unsuitable place for keeping money, aud that its pres ence there serves to invite burglars, must be admitted. It is by no means strange that farmers have become suspicious of cross-roads banks, that have little or no capital, whose directors are irresponsible and whose officials arc of questionable in tegrity. But there is scarcely a county in the country that docs not contain at least one reliable bank. There is no consider able city in which there is not a bank that enjoys the confidence of the business men of the community. If it is not convenient for a man living in the country to make deposits in this bank personally, it costs but a trifle to send money to it by express. The express company is responsible, 1 hanks will forward receipts for money/re ccived by tlic oxjmjoss Besides the banks there are now safe depositories in nearly all large cities, where patrons can place money, papers, and other valuables in private boxes of which they hold the keys. If they do uot afford absolute secu rity, they furnish the nearest approach to it that humam wisdom, skill, and ingenui ty can suggest. • i Calves, from Milk, to Grass. 1 ! From the American Ur ml Jlome. ' An error that farmers are too prone to fall into is, the idea that stock, at some j , periods of their growth, may he neglected with little, or no loss, that may not becom pensated for by high feeding at other times. ' This error cannot be abandoned too soon, , and, until it is abandoned, a great deal of stock will bo reared and fed without profit, ' but with serious loss. A great deal is said by advocates of ‘ thoroughbred stock in disparagement and derision of scrub bulls, and justly said, and 5 we will yield to none in our estimate of the j importance of heredity, but wo are of the opinion that less money is lost by farmers j In breeding from grade bulls than in ueg ( lect in feeding, after the calves are born, J in fact, wo think that one strong argument in favor of using high blood males is, that 1 farmers will be more likely to feed and 1 treat their progeny better than they will , the progeny of scrub stock. How often do we see calves that are | large, thriving, well-formed so long as fed . on milk, become thin, pot-bellied, homely, soon after being turned out to pasture. In , many cases calves will scarcely weigh more ’ when put up for winter than when turned out to pasture in June or July. And then | they will, very likely, be fed just enough 1 to keep them from starving through the • winter, and, when turned out to pasture the next spring, they will be scarcely larger than when three months old. Great doubt is often expressed by fanners and espe cially dairy farmers, as to whether they can afford to raise their calves; whether it is not j better policy to buy them when old enough 1 for cows, or to fatten for beef. Wo have no hesitation in saying they cannot afford to raise calves in the way very many are raising them; if they should do • enough at it, it would bankrupt every one of them. Farmers can neither afford to breed, rear, feed or fatten stock unless they keep them thriving; crowd them from the time they arc born until they send them off the farm. But if they are ever going to uaglcet to push their stock, let it be almost any time rather than the first year. In the first place, the change from milk to grass should never be abrupt. After the calves have been fed a few days on new milk, from the cow, a little sweet skim milk can be gradually introduced, mixed with the new milk, and to compensate for the loss of cream, a little oil meal can be stirred in, or, where flax seed can be obtained, a gruel can be made by boiling it in water a long time. A little of this gruel can be mixed with the skim-milk, the amount be ing constantly increased with the growth of the calf. When about two months old the calf can be turned into a small pasture, near the house, but should not be left to depend upou the grass; keep up the feed of skim milk and light rations of oil-meal, fine middlings, oat-meal or some other kind of nutritious grain. If, when the calf Is four or five months old, it is thought best to ■ discontinue the milk, give the meal mixed with water, or even dry, if thought best. The principle which we wish to enforce is, thai the aim should bo to induce the calf ( tb cat all the nutritions food possible, con- ( Jlstent with his health, ipstcad of consid- ( rering how little yon can possibly keep him < w you that 1 animal machine, is worth more than the milk, meal, grass, etc., you expend in creat ing it. This growth in a heifer, makes her a larger and more efficient machine for the manufacture of milk, in a steer, makes him a larger, stronger, more powerful machine for manufacturing beef and tallow. How to Clean a Horse. There is little doubt that a large share of the horses would be more healthful and thriving, capable of greater achievements and more enduring if properly groomed. The “Farmer’s Keview” tells how it should he done as follows; One of the most important things to be observed in the management of farm horses is their cleaning, and yet it may be safely stated that nothing is more neglected by the majority of farmers. The horse should never be cleaned or harnessed while it is eating breakfast. Let horses eat their food in peace, for many, from sanguine temperament or greed, holt their oats when handled during the time of feeding. Har ness can be quick enough put on after the feed is eaten, and time should be taken to comb the mane and tail, and use a wisp of straw on the body and legs. When the horses come in at dinner time, they should at onee be unharnessed. The feed is then to be given, and before the harness is again put on the horse should be thoroughly rubbed down with a wisp of straw or hay. If the horses are very warm on coming in, they should be rubbed down immediately after the removal of the harness. The cleaning or grooming, which should be done at night, consists first in currying the horse with the currycomb to free him of the dirt adhering to the hair, and which being now dry, is easily removed. A wisp ing of straw removes the roughest of the dirt loosened by the -cawyeemb: The legs ought to be thoroughly wisped, not only to make them clean, but to dry up any moisture that may have been left in the evening; and at this time the feet shoul be picked clean by the foot picker— i. ~ an iron instrument made for the purpose —of any dirt adhering between the shoe and the foot. The brush is then to be used to re move the remaining and finer portion of dust from the hair, which is cleaned from the brush by a few raps along the curry comb. This wisping and brushing, if done with some force and dexterity, with a comb ing of the tail and mane, should render the horse pretty clean, but there are more ways of grooming a horse than one, as may be witnessed by the careless and skimming way in which many hired hands do it. The skin of the farm horse should at all times be clean if not sleek, and a slap of the hand upon the horse will show if there is loose dust in the hair. The currycomb should not be used below the knees, as it is apt to cause injury. For cleaning the legs and feet, nothing is better than the water brush; and when fitting a horse for the show-yard, it may also be used on the body with water, or even a little kerosene, but the latter is not required for common cleanliness, but merely to impart a tempo rary gloss. How many farmers can say that their horses are cleaned as thoroughly as we have advised in the above ? How much longer would horses live, work, and remain healthy if the above suggestions were put into practice? These are questions which it will be well to consider and answer at leisure. Leaves as a Fertilizer. The value of fallen leaves as a fertilizing a ,r ent is greatly under estimated. The farmer laments over worn out fields and meadows, while in his woodland is a thick layer of half decayed leaves which, if added to his decomposed heap and judiciously distributed, would aid greatly in restoring his farm to the condition of new land. The gardener finds rotted loaves one of his best allies, for they can be used unsparingly with excellent results where animal man^ growth of vines and foilage. One of the main secrets of the florists’ success is the use of leaf mold. Without leaf mold and clean sand the greenhouse would become a “barren ideality.” Mixed with soil forpot plan(s, in the proportion of one-third, leaf mold produces wonderful effects, particularly upon roses. Hake up the leaves when they fall, make them into a heap in a convenient place, j where they can bo kept wet all winter, and i put brusli or earth on top to keep them j from being blown away. Perhaps by next spring the bottom leaves will be decayed I sufficiently for use, but not until next fall I or the spring following will the whole pile bo decomposed. The older and more thor oughly rotten the leaf mold the better. Rotten wood and chip dirt are also effi cacious fertilizers, though not equal to leaf mold for pots, and not always as readily obtained. It is surprising that those living near the woods do not make a more general use of rotted wood and leaf mold. Several wagon loads of each mixed and kept damp a year or two in a heap would be a verita ble treasure to one trying to raise luxuriant flowers and large juicy vegetables , QP SPECIAL INTEREST TO TOBACCO CHEWERS AND SMOKERS.
