Does the Small Farm Pay? A writer in the Farm Life says: Does tbe lJ nail farm pay better in proportion to its ze than the large one ) is a question often iked me by men interested in large farms, hose who inquire are usually ready to laintain that it dots not, but although I 'ten avoid an argument on the subject, I m equally well convinced that it does pay i mch better. In considering the question • i here are different things to he looked at. J true that in many cases the man who 1 Inn make a small farm pay can make a Ij.rgo one pay in the same proportion; but IjL farm can be too large. I know a farmer U iat tries alone to farm I‘VI acres, who, if e would retain about five acres and let the S st to some good farmer, would double his -early income. Let me particularize: This farmer puts in about eight acres of L :orn with the intention of working it him “ elf. He also plants two or three acres of potatoes, some 10 to 20 acres of oats and 15 ■ *o 20 acres of wheat—or in round numbers ' if- has about 50 acres under cultivation, the ,-ork on which he expects to do himself. In this he makes his first mistake, and it is a treat mistake. He has 110 acres left, for 3 jasture and meadow. The point I wish to nake is, that this farmer has too many irons ~ u the fire. He should have one man by the 5 -ear, and if necessary at times, as it proba ily would be to do his work properly and in season, he should employ another by the lay. A second mistake is in attempting to •rop land without a sufficient quantity 6f ' nanure. I have seen farmers who worked .heir land to death without enough manure, who never thought of clover, who slaved early and late as if there were no other lays to come, and at the end of the year it was the same old story, “a living, that's all.” How many farmers with 160 acres ire just doing the same thing. To the question often asked by such individual, "How can I make my farm pay I” I w ould answer, “Give it manure or give it a rest. Do not let your farm run down; crop only ivhat you have manure enough to dress; ceep the land well covered.” I wish right hers to call the attention of the farmers who art in the dry belt, those of Ohio especially, to the value of fresh manure. This fall, when you were top iressmg your wheat fields, did it not come o your mind that the manure had decreased n value about one-half since last spring? Tad you taken that manure and spread it >ver your sod before you planted corn, your :crn would have yielded one-third more and t’our wheatfields would now be a very dif erent color. I have preached this to some if the fanners around me for years but hey still holfl to the topdressing. I knowof ome few who scatter their manure when resh, so that rain can beat it into the ;round, then plow it under. Their farms ire improving every year, while those who et the manure lie in the barnyard from one rear to the next., then throw it on the sur ace ot me land IY>r the sun and tbe wind to carry away, are at a standstill. I will icknowledge that you may get a better crop 1 Df wheat by top dressing in autumn, but if e (-ou put two years’ crops together the ad i vantage will be decidedly in plowing under the previous spring. , If we small fruit growers and market trdeners were to use our manure in this i yle and gel no better returns from it than ies the average farmer we should soon be iroken up at the prices we have to pay. I >ay more for manure for 40 acres each year han the average wheat grower makes of his 40 acres of wheat, I believe that were le to spend one-half as much his yield wc uld >e so increased in a few years that hisoutlay would be returned tenfold. Here is where he small farm has the advantage over the arge one. It is worked every year; every foot has to pay; wbat-is planted is sure to •ome, let the season be wet or dry, for the ground is always moist. You can notice w hen you work about where the old stock yard has been for years the soil holds the lampness. Some are great sticklers for ro tation of crops. They say we must not take liver two crops of corn in succession from he same field. This is all lf you have tbe manure to cover it ns it ought to 5e covered you can raise corn crops in suc lession for 25 years. It is the manure that pays; see that you lose none of it. And this leads to thesubjectof specialties n farming, which is the strong point in favor of the small farm. Not but you cau nake a specialty of someone thing ou the arge farm also, though not with the same advantage as on the small farm, simply be cause a proportionally large amount of floating capital is not usually at command. I can find work for five men for soveu months n the year on 30 acres, and pay from $l5 to 120 per mouth besides board. I pay more for manure than the average farmer clears from his wheat on the same number of acres. Juitea difference between this and attempt ing to run ICO acres by one-man power without manure. Some say specialties fail. W hat if they do? Ordinary farm crops sometimes fail. This year in Ohio we lost Mir apple crop, but other crops made up for it- The berry crop sold for more than it has for years, the reason being a general short g. The inn who made a specialty of rerries, although his crop also was short, “ad beiTies also to sell and made some money, while the one who bad but a small patch had none to sell. 1 do not mean to say that we should drop everything else and just tie to one thing, bv my means; but wo should take one or two filings and plant largely of them, aud then raise enough other truck to keep up ex penses and run the farm. I take two crops (early from mv land and still leave it in ‘J better condition than 1 found it. It is lim it •ure, labor, thorough culture, economy that if ff'akes the small farm pay. A second crop i vegetables takes no more fertility from ■ue soil than a crop of weeds. It takes no ®ore to grow a good article than a poor one; will command a bettor price aud is no froublo to sell. In speaking of my own place Ido net include my plant trade. That is a business by itself. SJome things I have not Wplained as fully as I could have wished. 1 will take up some of the subjects sepa latelyat another time. As winter is now upon us we have time to consider whether Bl ’ m ® of us are not going over too much ground. Let us bear in miud that what is ,y orth doing at all is worth doing well. The Principles of PlAwlng. Speaking of seed testing last week, says •n Farmers ’ Review, we casually drew the •Mention of our readers to the fact that "the nan who plows his land so lt is left in 1 1 nneycombed state—full of nolo*, covered 11 ‘b* l miniature hills—will succeed in raising iothing but light grain, for the reason that i his cron does not ripen simultaneously.” 1 his doubtless is anew thought to many of j our readers who have been taught to con sider tl at the mere inverting of soil is all that necessarily constitutes the operation of plowing. But while inversion of the soil is undoubtedly the first principle of the opera tion called plowing, in practice other things must join hands with inversion in the prep aration of a proper seed bed. Talking about the principle of plowing it is safe to assert that plowing is the most unprincipled ope ration in farm practice in the West to-day. To merely turn stubble land or sod block by disturbing its repose by the rude tearing, rending, digging, scratching, inverting as saults of a walking plow, guided(?) by n small boy just able to keep the implement from capsizing, is what we call the “unprin cipled” plowing which on many a farm is common. The writer has walked in the alleged furrow behind a plowman of the calibre mentioned in the foregoing and has admired the little fellow’s brave endeavors to keep the plow from elevating or depress ing him too much; from running into a wider strip of land than it can invert, or one narrower than pa wanted or deeper t an the old horses enjoyed delving. ’Twas not the boy’s fault that while, of course, the land was blackened it w r as not plowed. He doubtless did his best, and nil that could be expected from him, and while his father sacrificed his young son’s school time to save his own legs he was eventually a double loser in the transaction, proper mind culture being lost by the boy and improper culture >f the land by the boy, resulting in a bad sample of grain and land left in poor con dition for another fenv. Any man or weil grown boy can be turned loose in a field with a team and plow and come out leaving it as if a shallow earthquake had swept across its surface and played havoc with its symmetry, but few men can plow. Yet proper plowing is one of the first principles in profitable farming. A noted writer has aid that “one-fourth of the produce of the arable lands of the country is lost through a want of tillage.” We are apt to consider this rather startling, but if the writer of that sentence had first made a tcur of our farms where “unprincipled plowing’ is in vogue he woujpl have said one-third is lost instead of one-fourth. And what is princi pled plowing? That is the question, aud beside the code we are now to draw up for that operation we fear our Western plowing will appear not only at variance, but of an altogether different, or in fact original va riety. To commence, then, each furrow should be exactly straight,not alone because straight furrows look best, but because, also, they pay best. The furrow slices should be all of the same thickness, if not a thin one laid on a thick one makes a low place in the field surface. They should all be cut of the same width; they will then, when laid together, present equal vertical lines. Stephens says: “Fur row slices should lie easily upon each other; not pressed hard together. The ground on being plowed should feel equally firm under foot at all places, for slices in a more up right position than they should be feel hard and unsteady, but will allow the seed to fall between them aud become buried. When too flat they yield considerably to the pres sure of the foot and they cover each other too much, affording insufficient mould for the seed. They should lie over at the same angle, presenting crests in the best possible position for the action of the harrows.” It will be readily seen that plowing of the kind we have outlined is not boy’s work. It is the work of skilled men and Ihe rush of spring work even should not cause farmers to so neglect their own interests as to send boys or untaught hired hands into the field to murder a well-laid down stubble or pas ture with a walk ng plow. It is possible for a boy to successfully rim a riding plow which is expected merely to turn a broad, shallow furrow, but for highly improved land our farmers do not use that sort of im plement. The “thorough tillage,” so neces sary nowadays demands skilled labor —the work of men who are masters of every branch of manual labor on the farm. We do not wish to be understood to mean that all farmers permit bad plowing on their farms, but we do wish to impress our read ers with the idea that plowing is not a sim ple or unimportant operation, but one that demands a great amount of skill in order that the very best results may follow it. Ramie Machines. In a number of Southern papers farmers are advised to plant ramieand are told that inventors have succeeded in producing a machine that will prepare ramie for mar ket so rapidly that it can be cultivated with great profit. The following letter to the Kaufman Fibre Manufacturing Company at New Orleans may not be without interest in connection with this subject: Please accept my thanks for the papers you kindly sent me. I read them with pleasure aud interest. I alwaj s read with interest anything referring to an industry with wbicn I am so closely identified. Years of disappointment have failed to discourage or induce me to give up the hope of seeing the Jute-Ramie industry practically estab lished in the South. The solution of the problem is only deferred for a time. It is hot pronounced as impracticable aud I be lieve in its ultimate success as firmly as I did when I started with my experiments some years ago at considerable trouble and expense, and out of which good results will yet come if we only persevere diligently and faithfully. The disappointment thus far is attributable to our own anxiety to obtain the laurels before we secure the vic tory practically and thoroughly. In l(?7i) and 80 there was, I think, but one machine claiming some attention. A few years aftewords several made tiieir appear anee, and each in turn claimed to be the best and to have solved the problem of pre paring jute and ramie quickly and in large quantities, inviting planters to buy expen sive machines and plant large crops of jute and ramie. The anxiety of inventors to place on the market machines which had shown no practical results raised suspicion on tho (tart of our planters, ho wisely for tified themselves with patience and resolu tion to watch events before launching them selves into raising exjrensivecrojrsor buying machines whose merits had only been pro claimed from the inventor's factory or office. I have always advise! caution on that point and feel gratified to know that my advice ha- not been ignored. Hud our planters acted blindly and plant ed crops and bought machines, you cun well imagine whht loss would have befallen them. For thus far, to my knowledge, not n single one of the many inventions has done any* thing beyond solving the problem on the pages of our generous press. We all know that there are formed many companies un der different styles and names, with capitals of from $500,000 to $1,000,000, and over, and through pamphlets and circulars they keep hammering into our minds that fortune awaits any one that will buy a machine and plant a rotate crop. By this time said com mm?* ought to have bwn satisfied pie are not going to do anything of the kind; that, they are tired out with empty promisee and are determined to wait for the inventors to show practical results. In view of this wise determination will it not be ad visable tor those rich fibre companies to cause crops to be raised at their own ex- I THE MORNING NEWS: MONDAY, MARCH 12, 1888. pense and thus provide themselves w ith material in quantities, and through that medium show in reality the true merits of their machines. But the work should be and ne thoroughly, not by working a few pounds or tons of rami.) or jute, but by sav ing crops of acres. Then, and not until'then, actual facts will be ascertained, both as re gards the work done by the machines aud the yield per acre. Our hopes for the former have not been realized, our theories for the latter thus far are baseless, and the three and four crop statement's myth. Two crons a year will be satisfactory enough to tho pi inters provided the machines do the work economically. That the ramie and jute are crops easily raised, and at a moderate expense, are facts known to all, and whilst 1 do not discourage planting on a small scale whenever the con dition of the soil is suitable, no crops of any magnitude should be planted until the ric-n fibre companies show beyond a doubt that t Ifwin veutions they possess are really what is needed to save a jute-ramie crop economi cally and in a marketable condition, such as die cotton gin does for our cotton crops. No one should be troubled about finding a market for jute or ramie. The world wants both. Chemical processes, spinning and weaving are matters that do not affect tho planter any more than they do our cotton crops. The planter’s province Is to raise the raw material of jute and ramie, the same as they raise our cotton crops; the balance of the work belongs to other chan nels. C. Mens las. Household. Pop Overs.— Two teacups of sweet milk, two teacups sifted flour, butter size of a walnut, two eggs, one tablespoonful sugar, a little salt; beat the whites to a stiff froth; bake in hot gem pans twenty minutes. German Toast. —Cut thick slices bread and dip each side in milk enough to soften, then dip in b aton egg; put into a frying pan witii just enough butter to fry; fry until brown as an omelet. Serve well spriu klod with white sugar. Little Holland Pretzels.— Make n dough of half a pound of flour, half a pound of sugar, the yelks of two eggs, a table spoonful of sour cream and a tabiospoonful of coriander seed. Break oft - little bits of the dough, roll them in round pieces and form them in little pretzels or rings. Biiaxsed Onions. —Pool and put four Spanish onions in cold water with washing soda the size of a hazelnut; let them come to the boil and simmer gently for half an hour; drain thoroughly; put them in a pie dish with a little butter of dripping aud bake till brown. Large onions will need about one hour and a half to bake. Buckwheat Cakes.— Put one quart cold water in a jar, add to it a teaspoonful salt and three and a half cups buckwheat, bea l until perfectly smooth; add half a teacupful yeast and mix well; cover the top of the jar, let stand in a moderately warm place until morning. When ready to bake dissolve a teaspoouful soda in ten tablespoonfuls boff in.: water, add this to the hatter, beat and bake on a hot greased griddle. Potato and Corn Muffins.—Two cups cold mashed potatoes, two cups sweet, milk, two eggs well beaten, two cups corn meal or enough fora batter. Soften the potato with the milk, working out all the lumps; then stir in corn meal until the batter is just thick enough to drop easily from the spoon, add tho whipped eggs and Imat hard. Drop into hot gem pans and bake inaneven oven from twenty to thirty minutes. Salmon Croquettes.— Carefully pick out the flesh of some remnants of boiled salmon and mince it slightly. Melt a piece of butter in a saucepan; aid the smallest quantity of flour and some hot milk. Stir on the fire a minute or so: then add pepper, salt, a little grated nutmeg, some minced pnrrdoy, and lastly the ttsh. Shake it well, and as soon as the fish is hot take the sauce pan off the file and stir in the yelk of an egg beaten up with the juice of half a lemon. Now spread out the mixture on a plate to get coll; when cold divide it in tablespoon fuls and fashion them all iu bread crumbs the shape of toils: roll these in beaten up egg, bread crumb them well, and afier the lapse of about an hour fry in very hot lard and serve with fried parsley - . Farm and Stock N otoa. Give the young lambs all the oats they can eat as soon as they shall be old enough, so as to force them in growth for the early market. Figs should be kept on all farms where butter is made. This permits of utilizing the skim milk and saves the labor of ship ping the milk to market. Prof. Roberts, of Cornell University, says that a cow that makes six pounds of butter a week on cold water will makeseven pounds if the water be warmed. It is alike dangerous toother horses and men to spare the life of a glandered horse. Glanders is an incurable disease, highly con tagious and in the human subject fatal. Rotating crops, manuring lands and sub duing weeds are to a farmer what keeping his factory in perfect order and repair is to the manufacturer—indispensable to suc cess. Drain around the wells. Allow all surface water to flow away. It is a very easy mat ter to contaminate the drinking water, es pecially in spring, when tiie ground is satu rated. The ground for carrots and parsnips should he free from small stones. The best soil is a light sandy loam. The roots would grow forked and irregular if they should meet with obstructions in the soil. A 20-aere farm at Carrollton, Mich., pro duced this year 30 tons of hay. #I,OOO worth of raspberries, 400 bushels of strawberries, 300 of onions, 200 of pota toes and 200 of corn. The total receipts were #2,150 , A sheep-breeder in Byers, Col., hasSouth (lown lambs, not more than 0 months old, that weigh 140 pounds each. They were brought from Canada and it has been esti mated that they will clip 12 poundaof wool, at least, by the time they shall be 14 months old. In engaging in the bee business none but strong, healthy stocks should be bought and only theUest hives used; then their natural habits and requirements should be closely studied and the care and attention given them that knowledge teaches thorn to re quire. The precise condition of tho bees should always be known. Agriculture is the foundation of our in dustrial system. Upon it rests all other honorable vocations, and the general good of the community, no leas than the well being of individuals, requ.res that it be of the highest excellence. It is not enough P at the farmer knows how to till the soil, lie must know how to improve the quality of his lands and how to adapt various plants to different soils. To get good-sized, active mules breed a largo, well-made mare with neat limbs to a good-sized Spanish jack.

For cultivating crops mules are superior to horses, its they walk Indian fu.shion, oue foot directly in front of tho other. Popular Science. According to Engineering some recent investigations of the subject of belt capa city by Mr. Otto Gehikons, of Hamburg, indicate that the strain per inch of width may be 55 pounds at high speeds, such as 2,000 feet per minute, but at slower belt siieeds the strain should lie reduced to 40 pounds. It seems that “dry rot,” the enemy of builders, is a sort of contagious disease. Good authorities state that it can becarri :d by saws and other tools which havo lieen in contact with infected wood, and that sucli transmission and impregnation is often the cause of the mysteriously rapid decay of originally sound timbers. The mean height of the land above sea level, according to Mr. John Murray, is 2,260 feet and the mean depth of ttie ocean is 12,480 feet. Only 2 per cent, of the sea is included inside a depth of 500 fathoms, while 75 per cent, lies between 500 and 3,000 fatb oms. if the land should be filled into the hollows the sea would roll over the earth’s crust to a uniform depth of two miles. Erlenmeyer, in bis work on the opium habit, records a case in which fatal tubercu lar poisoning was believed to have been produced by the hypodermic needle. A phys.eian, aged 38 years, who had been ac customed to use the name needle for himself and a tuberculous patient, died suddenly, and at the autopsy a tuberculosis, strictly localized to the peritoneum, was found. The use of gasoline as a fuel for small motors is taken advantage of in a recent invention of a small engine to ho attached to bicycles and tricycles. With this it is claimed a maximum speed of ten miles an hour can be attained upon level ground. Sufficient fuel and water can be carried for a tour of 25 miles, and the weight of tin whole plant, with tanks fillod, is hut 185 pounds. The last year has seen a wonderful growt li in electric railways. There are now in the United Statesover 80 miles of road on which the motive power is electricity; Eighteen towns have plants in operation, in lengths varying from one to eleven miles. Con tracts have been made for roads and they are now being constructed in seventeen < flier towns, and there are fifty-nine pro j eted roads. A composition has been produced which may prove valuable to bookbiuders, having for its pur[>ose the rendering waterproof of leather, cloth, paper, etc. It is a mixlu. • of water, silicate of soda, resin, alum, pot ash, fish glue, sulphate of zinc aud sulphate of copper in vai ious proportions. The ap plication is said to render the material im pervious to the influence of oil or water and, if a variety of ingredients increase practical utility, should be very valuable. Some Good Sense. From Babyhood. There’s ninny a father of a family who, while doing his utmost for his children while he is iu health, and making the lies’ pro vision he can for them in anticipation of his own diath, wholly neglects to put such provision in a tangible shapo where it can bo readily under-tood and manipulated by the mother or other guardian in case of his death coining suddenly. A case recently came to our notice where property of con siderable value was so tied up with legal re strictions, owing entirely to lack of a few formalities which could nave been attended to in a day’s work, that the widow and chil dren were kept for more than a year depend ent upon the good will of friends before money could be made available. Death is not ordinarily hastened by making preparations for it, and the subject should not be avoided on account of its unpleasant character. Many a model husband and father, whose business methods are of the most methodi cal and strictly honorable kind, would find ample occasion to blame himself for neglect if he would consider for a moment in what confusion his family would bo placed if this day should prove his last. A good plan is to make, at least once a year, a written statement of all one’s affairs at. that time, and file it, in an envelope with the wife’s name upon it, in a particular place which she and perhaps one other person shall know of, if not in her own eu tody. Such mem rainium should contain description of life insurance policies or similar documents, and state where a will, if any, is to be found; encumbrances of any kind should be noted; unfinished transactions should he briefly described, that their status may be fully understood; and even if there exits no property w hatever, a written statement to that effect would relieve doubt and avoid needless inquiry and suspense, in case one's business affairs were of a fluctuating nat ure. which could not always be closely fol lowed by the wife or fully expinfcied to her. In case of protracted and dangerous sick ness, questions relating to th * circumstances of members of a family who may soon be left alone cannot, be readily asked or an swered: and much of distress and dread of the future would be relieved at such a tine if the wife could feel that whatever earthly possessions existed were to be immediately available, or at least, that a full account of them was at, band under a comparatively recent date, so that she need cot bring the subject into the sick room. Dynamite in Her Grave. From the Few York .Sim. CONNERSVILLE, IND., Union county, this Slate. Washington Hanna, a weak h farmer, buried his daugh ter a few months ugo, and placed in her coffin her gold w-atcli and chain, and other valuables prized by her. Above the me tallic casket in the grave he placed two pounds of dynamite as a guard again: t possible grave robber-',. This week his wife died, and great difficulty was experienced in employing men to dig the now grave be side that of the daughter for four of' an ac cidental explosion, and many people re frained fr >m attending the services in the churchyard for the same reason. The mat ter ha attracted much attention, and the effectiveness of the protection against ordi nary robbers is conceded. MEDICAL. Liver Disorders Soon cause the blood to become contam inated and require prompt treatment. The most marked symptoms are loss of appetite, headache, pains in the back or side, nausea, and relaxation of the bowels. Ayer’s I’ills assist nature to expel the superabundant bile and thus restore the purity of the blood. Being purely vegetable and sugar-coated, they are pleasant to take, mild in operation, aud without ill effects. “ After many years’ experience with Ayer’s Rills as a remedy for the large number of ailments caused by derange ments of the liver, peculiar to malarial localities, simple justice prompts me to express to you iny high appreciation of the merits of this medicine for the class of disorders I have named.” —S.
