We propo(se to, de.vote time to this delparttme', andl ask olr readlers to co-operalt with us in ,n:kin, it equal to the test..

How Many Fowls to Keep.-This depends upon the space you have to devote to their aecommodation. Nev- P or laoi~e than forty to tifty, at imost, º" under oine roof ; and better, less than over thirty in one building, unless it be a -very large one. Why I Because they can't live and remain healthy, when crowded together in greater numbers. Upon limited premises, a dozen to twenty may be kept com fortably. But the day you crowd fifty to a hunndred adult towls and chicks or more into one house, you will find they will commence to fall ( off in lah ing, the birds will get sick, and farewell to further success or profit to your poultry keeping, in this style. If you desire to keep more c than thirty to forty fowls, you must " colonise them-each flock apart from t the others. Thus only can you profit , with numbers, and thus only can you hi determine which are the best layers. º -An Old Breeder, in the Plough- s man. n Potato Wine.-Slightly frosted po- L tatoes may be utilized into a very passable wine by carrying out the ." following directions: To about a bushel of potatoes, thoroughly pound- a ed or crushed, add ten gallons of wa- . ter after its having been previously d1 boiled for half an hour, with half v pound of hops and half pound good P ginger, (in power). Let this mixture º stand three or four days, in a umod- I erately warm place. Then add finally half pound of course sugar, a half pint of yeast or a bottle of sound ale, to stall a biisk fermentation. In a few days the fermentation will have nearly ended, then rack off into a small, clean cask, and in three months I the wine will be gady for use. Why Farmers Keep Poor.--A re. cent writer says: After long obser- i vation I have come to the conclusion that a great majority of the farmers I tlat are poor might have money. If t you inquire into their business hah its you will find that they always sold tife bdst aag kept the poorest. For instance if tT ey have too many sheep on hand, they pick out the best to be sold. If you ask theme why they do so they will say, "Because they bring twice- as much as others, anl I am hard up just now for money. I know thaltt is.,. at a good plan, and I do not intend to follow it always." I think the habit of selling the best is a very poor plan flor any man, I don't care what his circumstances may be. I have a man in my m,ind now whol, aliways sells his poorest sheep for more than twice as much as the av erage farmer gets for his best. I have seen farmers IS the fall pick out their best pigs to fatten, because lthey would make a few more po(,tnds of pork than the others. This I call poor economy. The Hog, Its Value and How to Care for.-The hog is an animal of great importance in this country, and is every day day becoming more so. Almost every family outside of large cities, tind even in the suburbs of tliese can keepl) one or more.pigs. Pork can be grown cheaper than any other kind of-menat, and what is of much importance, a stnal outlay of sapita) brings a quick return; if kept in' good condition, the pig may be slaughtered at any age after one mioth old. The next important question is, what variety is thie most profltalle to keep? Where the Chester White is known, no other breed can compete with it. It is nearer perfeetion as a hog, thana has ever yet been arrived at. Its outline is beautiful, its dies position gentle, its habits quiet aind aotented, not disposed to roam and fret, so that the food it consumes goes to formation of flesh and is not spent in roaming after mischief. It is not a gross feeder, but, like all other ani muals, requires its toed at regular in tervals; this care and attention is never lost on it. There is no other breed that enjoys better health. If kept till twelve or fifteen months old and properly eared for, it will yield frot'five to seWn hundread pounds of net pork. What other animal wrill yield so mneh in so short a time, from so small a beginning, with such a small outlay of capital f The hog, like other afimals, should be kept clean or rather, it slhotlh have an opportauity of keelpiug itself clean. Ithouse soueould havte a good soof to turn thie rain ; its floor shaould be sutf8iciently elevated to be kept dry and no holflow place for puddles of water to stand in. It wit w db well en pastrl~ msatutr, mer, with very lit tie phlaor pai· . Cloher is the very )yw.pasture for it. 'The economy of selecting thie best -breed of hogs for stocking flarms is just beginning to be appreciated, the long-lcegged will hive to knock under, they lhave had their day.

' Illustrated by a corpsofthe best Aleri- at can artists, and contributed to Iy the cc most popular humorists and satirists of in the day. Wild Oats now enters successfully up- te on the sixth year of its existence, and iu has become the established humlllorouls and satirical paper of the country. It was started and continued the first year as a fr monthly, then, to satisfy the demand of ci the public, it was changed to a fortnight ly. Still continuing its good work of ci hitting folly as it flies, and showing up r the political antid social shams by its masterly cartoons and pungent editorials, it achieved even greater success than before, and was recognized as the ablest antId brightest of its class. Since then we have yielded still further to the public demand, and now publish Wild Oats weekly! It has literally grown into its present shape on its intrinsic merits, be ing the first successful weekly humorous paper ever published in this country. Among the artists especially engaged to furnish illustrations for Wild Oats are Frank Bellew, Thomas Worth. Hopkins, Wales, Shelton, Wolf, Jump, Keettels, Stuckhardt, Day, Poland, and several it others who are yet known to fame. In its literary departments Wild Oats it will, as it always has, stand alone and j unapproachable. At least one first-class serial story will always be found in its it pages, by the best humnorous, satlrical, Ii and character writers in the United States; while its sketches and squibs ] will be sparkling, original and pointed. N Wild Oats will be first-class in every o particular, and on this account may be taken into the best families without fear f or suspicion, as no word or illustration will appear that can offend the most fas tidious. c o'e Send for a Sample Copy and p Conrince Yourselres.
