Enrly (iinl Lato Cut Ilny. Tho Maino State Industrial college, with no larger ondowment than that of Vermont, has, beaides educating a goodly number of farmors' sons to the business of agriculture, dono inuch of practical utility in the way of settling by careful oxperiruent some diflicult questlons in connection with fatming. The well known test, mado for several years on tho college farm with cooked and uncooked food, clearly provod that there is no ad vantage in cooking food for swino. This alone has been worth hundreds of thou- sands of dollars to American farmora The college has now gone praotioally at the work of solving the relative feeding value of early and lato cut hay for dairy feeding. It is well known to our readera that Professor Sanborn, late of the New Ilampshire and now of the Missouri agrl cultural college, denied the superior value of early cut hay as feed for working oxen or fatting cattle. There is hardly any question in agriculture of more pecuniary importance to our f armers than this. The Maine college grappled with it systematl cally, and the results of one season's tests are given as f ollows : " A field of grass of uniform quantity and quality, consisting mostly of clean herdsgrass, with a very little white-weed daisy, intarmized, was selected and di- vlded into plots two and one-half rods in width and twenty rods in length. The grasa upon the first, third and fifth plots was cut when in full bloom, July 11th ; and thosecond, fourth andsixth plots were cut twenty days later, August 3d, when the seed had becomo hard, but not sufll ciently ripe to shell in harvesting. " The weight of hay cut early, at time of putting in tho barn, was 2,931 pounda per acre. "Weight of same February 14th, 2,075 pounds ; shrinkage, eight and three- fourths per cent. " The weight of hay cut late, at time of harvesting was 3,150 pounds per acre, Weight of samo February 14th 2,002 pounds; shrinkage, fifteen and one-half per cent. " The greater shrinkage in the lato cut hay is probably owing to its being weighed directly from the bunches that had stood in the fiold over night. The amount of winter dry hay from each cut- ting was practically the same. " Chemical analysis of the hay showed the followmg composition : I1RLT IUT. Molsturo 10.7 per cent. ir?teln u perceut. ' v 3.3 per cent. Mtrogon-free extract 4f.S per cent. C'rude Flbre 27,7 lKI cent. An 3.8 per cent. LATE IUT, MoWure 7.8 per cent. l"roteln 4.6 per cent. Jf" 2.8 per cent. Mtrogen-free extract .11 per cent. Crnde Flbre SU.2 ceQt, Ah 3.11 per cent. " To test the comparative feeding value of this hay, two cows as evmly mated as possible wero selected, each being cross bred, seven-eighths Jersoy and one-eighth Ayrshire. They wero comparatively fresh, having been in milk but a few weeks. They each received three pounds of corn meal, threo pounds of cotton-seed meal, ono and one-half pounds of bran, and twenty pounds of hay daily through out tho entire period of feeding. " Bos8 was fed during the first period of twelvo days upon late hay, the first uix being in preparation and to overcomo the influenoe of previous feeding, and tho milk product of tho last six days of tho period, was taken as tho result of tho late hay. At tho closo of tho first period, her feed was changod to early hay, and she was fed upon this during the second period of twelvo days, tho first six to do stroy tho influenco of previous feeding as before, and tho last six, tho milk produced represented tho result of the early hay consumed during that time. Tho third period her hay was tho lato cut, fed as in tho first. This feeding alternately on late and early hay was coqtinued through six periods of twelvo days each, or seventy-two days. " Tho croam,waa raisod and butter mado from it under slmilar conditions during each period, tho butter beiDg made from the milk of ono day, and calculated for the poriod from tho number of pounds of milk requirod for one pound of butter. The total amount of f nt contained in each day's milk was ascertained by chemical exaroination. " Tho samo course of feeding and tost- ing was repoated with Pet, oxcopting when Bess had lato hay Pet had early, and when Bess had early Pet had lato. This was for tho purposo of equalizing the influenco of tbo variation of tompora turo that might ocour. 2 h c a K K 12 E 3 3 o I 3 5 5 b a. o, BB98. 160.12 Sl lt.1.87 19 144.18 19 1W.2.1 72 133.b8 2(1 114.18 19 Flrat Late Ilav 14.46 18.M 19.4(1 14.b9 15 41 21.44 11.07 8 31 7.69 10.23 8.67 6.72 8.89 6.33 .97 5.91! 5.51 9.63 Hecond, Early Hay Third Late Hay Konrtu Early Hay Flfth Lato Hay HUth Early Hay flt. 167.37 21.5 19.4D lb'1.37 19.S 20.0 178.43 20 21.75 157.01 21.5 17.04 lm Wi 20 17.69 151.12 20 18.94 Klrst Early Hay Hecond Lato Hay Third Early Hay Kourth Late Hay J'ltth Early Hay 9.C2 8.21 8.20 B.25 9.33 7.97 6.33 6.51 6.73 5.88 6.35 S.55 Hlxth Late Hay " It was found that 270 lbs. of mixod grain and 720 lbs. of early hay, produced 000.12 lbs. of milk, which yielded 52.08 lbs. of butter, and tho milk contained 37.3G lbs. of fat. The same quantity and quality of grain as above, fed in connec tion with 720 lbs. of late hay, gave 021.15 lbs. of milk, which yielded 52.85 lbs. but ter, the milk containing 35.3 lbs. fat. In this test the comparative valuo of the early and late hay for milk production was as 100 to 03.34 ; or, the daily feeding ration of 20 lbs. of early hay was equal to 21.42 lbs. of late hay for tho samo pur poso. There was practically no differcnce in the amounts of butter obtained from each fodder. It was feared that tho appe- tites of the animals might not bo as good for the late as for the early hay, but such was not the case to any serious extent. In only two of the six changes from early to late, was there any dislike cxhibited, and this was overcomo during the first day of feeding upon it. " In onoof the six changes from late to early, thero was nearly tho samo dislike manifested. This was somewhat surpris ing, as tho early hay was green and fresh, while tho late was evidently nearly ripe. " It must, however, be borne in mind that the weather during the last haying season was unusually favorablo to late standing grass, no rain of consequenco oc curring after July 10th. " Theso results show much less differ ance in the nutritive value and palatabil ityof hay harvested at a much later pe riod, thanjias generally been supposed to exist." StrnwberricH. D. T. Averill, Northfield, Vt., writes: " I havo just harvested a good crop of strawberries from plants set in Mayr1882. This being the first crop, I desire to secure another from the same vines. From your experience, should you say it could be easily done? If so, I should be pleased to learn, through your depart ment, how to proceed j what to do, and when to do it. The runuers were not disturbed, but did not fully cover the ground last fall, but the vacancies are now fast filling. I am told to spade up tho old row of vines and leavo the run ners on the intervening spaces. I would like to know tho best process to get a fair second crop from the same vines. The variety is Wilson. ' RErLY by Agricultural Editok. We are glad to see and hear of our farm ers engagmg in sraall as well as large fruit culturo. The villages of Vermont do not yet receive one quarter tho amount of such fruits that they would willingly consume. We have every year, at loast four times as many orders as we can fill for strawberries and currants. The only difficulty wo havo is in getting pickers, Vermont is too rich a state for women and children to want to work at anything away from home. ivegaraing uir. Averurs question, we may say wai we navo rareiy tound any profit in running a strawberry bed more than one season. The seeds of dande lion, plantain, white dover, grass and five-finger find just tho spots they need to secure protection and growth under tho shelter of strawberry plants. In our beds just picked thero are ten young dande lions to every strawberry plant, and an equal proportion of several otker weeds. To pull theso all out by hand, and their successors again and again, is very much more laborious and expensive than to set a now bed in the spring and keep it clean with a hoo until tho plants cover tho ground. In tho spring you will then, in a new bed, find about as much weedlng to do as any reasonablo man need ask for. Nevertheless we have, occasionally, run a bed two seasons. For convenience of picking, tho rows of a strawberry bed ought not to be much moro than three feet wide, with a two fest path between. If Mr. Averill will, when his bed is cov ered with plants, spade in such a path bo tween such strips, (digging in tho old plants preferably, as he has been advised,) and will then carof ully reraove tho weeds from the rows and paths two or three times between now and tho timo tho ground f reezes up, he will (provided wo havo a favorablo winter) get a very good picking next year. At the samo timo, un less we aro mistaken, ho will concludo that a new bed every year is the cheapest. Tho Wilson strawberry, whioh Mr. Averill plants, is a standard variety and ono very diflicult to surpass, although it has its defeots. From our experionoo during threo years, wo should adviso tho planting, in alternato rows with Wilson, tho Crescent, a littlo earlier, and tho Chief, later, so that with the three kinds in one bed, the soason is prolonged conslderably. Both tho Croscont And Chiof are plstll lates, and thoroforo requiro to bo plantod near a perfcct flowered variety llko tho Wilson, to yiold a full crop. For growing plants for sale, a plot of oach should be planted soparately, but roorely for a bed to be picked from, a littlo mlxing of the plants is of no consoquonce, ospocially for a noar market. The Crescent is too soft to ship far, but tho Chief is as firm as tho Wilson. Strawborrios grow largor, fruit more abundantly, and bear longer when plantod on raoist (not wet) land. Sand on Wot Mcndovr. II. L. W. writes : " In ans wor to Young Farmer' as regards doubling his hay crop, i wouia aaviso using sana as an absorbent in the stable behind the cattle and in tho hog-pen. Much good manuro can be made in this way, and 1 think it would work well on wot muck soil. I would not adviso plowlng it, but would harrow It in, or top-dress with it. For sandy land would uso muck as an absorb ent. Cows should be stablod overy night in the year and tho liquid saved. It is worth as much as the manure." Notk nr AoKicrjLTUKAL JiniTon. This is very good advico, but " Young Farmor " said he had no manure to sparo. We have an idea that an inch or two of fino sand spread evenly alone on such a moadow would bo of benefit to the grass. We hope more of our readers will come to' " Young Farmer's " assistance, as the subjectis of general interest. We should also like practical mon's ldeas about sta- bling cows every night of the year. It ac- cumulates manure in the barn for inow itig andcultivatedcrops,but how about the pasturos : Is it not robbing Petor to pay Paul, as the saying is ? Como, Mr. Arms, Mr. Pitkin, Mr. Averill and all tho rest of you, take a showory moment and give us your views on theso matters. Loring. What puzzles us about Dr. Loring's conduct is that when he took ofilce as commissioner of agriculture July 1, 1881, he had no Bympathy with the sorghum oxpcriments, and only last fall, according to tho statement of Professor Beal, of the Michigan agricultural college, exprossed to himhis dislike of the sorghum enterprise; then in Decombor weafc down to St. Louis to the cane growers national association and was full of praise of the sorghum in' dustry. While this was going on ho was playing fast and loose with the special re port of the national academy of sciences, which fully endorsed Professor Collier; finally in his oflicial report of Noveraber 20th last, said this report of the academy was a valuable one, and would soon be published ; but while the sorghum sugar men have waited, and are waiting still for that report, it has not been published, though Dr. Loring's speech at St. LSurS December 14th was published as special report No. 51, and No. 50 was out in February. AVe see it is easy for Dr. Loring to get out his own speeches promptly, but a valuable report must He months. Now all this twisting of opin- ion and conduct in our commissioner is what strangely puzzles us. At tho Wisconsin experimont Station last season, three and one-sixth acre3 of sorghum wero planted, with the following results : Weight of strtpped cano 75,262 pounda, l'erceut ot Cttae sugar ln Julce 1J.B9 injuudi, l'er cent of glacose 111 Juice 3.95 pounds, Amount of sugar separated : First cryitalllzatlon 2,U6Ji pounds, octuuu uijBiauw'.ilHUU. pOUntlS, Total amount ot sugar 2.846W pounds nyrup untlnea f rom the sugar. 315 gallous 0cniuuwiuni lu uusueig,ai pounus eacu. The cost of mauufacturing the uure- fined sugar, including cost of cane, was four and a half cents per pound. The valuo of the seed is not taken into ac count. The sugar is a good article, nearly white, coarse-grained aud dry, and is in all respectj equal to tho best sugar made from southeru cane. Grai'E Catsup. Any variety will make the catsup, and it will be nice, but the tart is preferred. Let five pints of grapes simmer till they are so soft that you can rub all but tho seeds through a colauder with easo. After this is done add two pints of brown sugar, ono pint of vinegar, two tablespoonfuls each of allspice, cloves and cinnamon, one and a half tea-spoons fuls each of mace, one of salt, and half a tea-spoonful of red pepper. Put all in a porcelain kettle, let boil slowly till as thick as you llko catsup to be. Tho grape must bo picked from the stems, and bo washod thoroughly, or they will be gritty, and the catsup be spoiled. An English journal (Pall Mall Gazette) says : " Tho whims of fashion aro said be good for trado. They certainly speed tho circulation of monoy. But the sum- merof prosperity they oreato is nearly always followed by a very hord winter, 1ms is the view of tho subject which we havo tried to impress upon tho mind of Brother Tinkham.

Tho "Glrl" Qaestioii. One of tho most vexcd, perplexed, but yet important questions of the day is the girl question ; the problem of how the work ot tne nousenola is to bo done, and how more efficlent help is to be prooured and kept. ine decay ot tno home spint is a decay that is to bo greatly deplored. Whatever saps that foundation is work ing ruin in the moral, social, political, educational, and religious foundations of tho world. There ought to be hands, and heads, and hearts euoufrh on our great continent to save us from this ruin, and to secure lor our people tne privileges of home life. But the troublo is, most of us wish to bo freed from all cares. and responsibili- ties, and perplexities on tho subject. Wo do not wish to " hght and run away, in order that we may live to renew the " fight another day," but to run away and abandon the fight altogether. The plan of having co-operativo kitchens seems to bo quita seriously mooted, so that we may have our cooking " done out ; " then with tho laundrying " done out," the educating of the children " done out," tho sewing 'done out, etc, there realiy will not seem to oe very mucn leit to bo " dono in," nor, indeed, much individuality left m the home. Women are not convinced, often and elcqueutly as they are told it, that their true mission, " their rifrbt divine and un questionable," is to create good, true, pure, beautiful homes. Yet the woman who cau create a home that her husband will carry in his heart all day and return to ciadiy at night ; a home ln which her children grow into all beautiful nght- nving ana ngnt-imnKing; to which friend cau come, and feel rested and strengthened, and the wayfarer recall as a biessea oasis, is a woman who has ner formed tho highest mission on earth. Her lntluence is not conuned and cir cumscribed. It is essential that each home should have its own distinct individuality ; and tnat it snonid do well and comiortably "kept." The art of " keepincr house"is only a part of the necessary means to an end, out it is an important, even thouch a subordinate part. Tho cookintr of food. the washing of dishes, and the setting of tabies, the sweeping, dustmg, bcd-makmg, etc, must be done ; and there appears to bo a great dearth ot means to have them comiortably well done. A revolution in a certam hottsehold after an uneasy reign of servants seems to suggest a possible solution of the prob lem. A tall and slender young girl, with quiet, lady-ntce ways, entered the famtly to do the " general hou3owork," and she does it quietlv and iaitluully. She al ways speaks promptly and pleasantly when it is necessary or when she is ad dressed, but she never intrudes herself or her remarks. fahe is self-respecting and dignified ; and she is respected, and, ah 1 how heartny approved and appreciated, She has her faults ; but who of us has not? That this happy adjustment of house. hold labor is not of teuer seeu is due to two evils. The most evident one is that our American girls loso sicrht of what is due to others in their determination to as- sert their own position and dicnitv: that they seem rudo and forward when they attempt any such occupation. Xhev fail to realize that their very self-assertion is their own humiliation, and that the post tion, whatover it may be, does not honor or dignify the person, but that it is the lndividual that digmlies the position. If it wero not considered a disgrace to perform the essential labor in a home, to do housework ; if it were, instead, thoucht to be not only a respeotable but a com- mendame occupation, one ot the greatest objections to accepting such positions would be renioved. 'ihen, undoubtedly. our own American girls than whom none aro capable of being more apt and auaptive wouid noip us m the solution ot ono oi our greatest national dllhculties Our homes must be saved to us ; their do mcsticity, thelr individuality, their sanc tity, must bo rescued f 10m the evils that threaten them ; and our girls, too, must be savod from tho exposure and the teniptation, from the waut, despair, and sm wuicn are now an appallmg ovil. But the second troublo is to find mis- tresses capablo of takiug tho charge and " oversight ot their own houaehold arrangements, and willing to do it. They must be prepared to take young girls and givo them necessary instructions. They must remember that they have huraan souls to deal with, not mere machines, and must deal with them with the faith- fulness and justice they desire to receive in return. Thore is a deep social problem under noath this difliculty. It cannot be solved by a tirado against poor servants or poor mistresses. vjooKing-soiiooia lor ladies or cooks will not relieve us.

Now, let us suppose a siuiilar beefsteak to be cooked by radiant heat, with tho leost possible co-operation of convection. To effeot this, our source of heat must be a good radiator. Glowlng solids aro bot tr radiators than ordlnary flames ; thoro foro coko, or charcoal, or ordlnary coal, after its bltumlnous matter has done its flaming, should bo used, and tho stoak or ohop may bo placed in front or above a surface of such glowlng carbon. In or dlnary domestio practice lt is placed on a gridiron above the coal, and thoroforo I will consider this case first. Tho object to bo atfained is to raise tho julces of the moat throughout to about the torapera- turo oi ono nunarea anu oignty ciogrees Fahrenheit as quickly as possible, in order that the cookery may be completod before the water of theso julces shall havo had timo to ovaporate to any considerable ex tent ; theretoro tho meat should bo placed as near to tho surface of the glowing car bon as possible. But the practical house wife will say that if placod within two or threo inches, eome of tho fat will be melted and burn, and then the stoak will bo smoked. Now, hero we requiro a little more chcmlstry. There is smoking and smoking smoking that produces a do- testabio navor, and smoking that does no mischief at all beyond appearance. Tho flamo of an ordlnary coal firo is due to the distillation and combnstlon of tarry vapors. II such a Hamo Btrikes a com paratively cool surface like that of the meat, it will condense and deposit thereon a film of crude coal-tar and coal-naptha, most nauseous and rathor mischievous ; but if tho flame be that which is caused by the combustion of its own fat, the de posit on a mutton-chop will be a little muttoh-oil, ou a beefsteak a little beef-oil moro or less blackened by mutton-carbon or beef-carbon. But these oils aud car- bons have no other flavor than that of cooked mutton and cooked beef ; there foro they aro perfectly iunocent, in Bpite of their Kuilty black appearances. W. Mattieu WiUiams, in lJopular Scicnce Monthlyfor August. Truo Manlinoss. Every young man considers it hicrh praise to be called a " manly f ellow ;" aud yet how many f alse ideas there are of uanllness I i'hysical strength is not the test. Samson was endowed with tre meudous bodily powers. He was a grand speclmen oi humanity. bee him reuding the Hon as he would a kid, or carrying away tho gates of Gaza I But he was a weak creature after all, unable to resist the wiles ot an artlul woman. (ireat in tullect is not the test of truo manbood. Some of tho most intellectual men who have ever lived were not manly. Lord Francis Bacon was a prodicrv of intellect, lhe sciences sat at his feet extolllng him as their benef actor ; yet we see him led down lower llill, a prisoner, for swind' Ung. iast imng is not true mauliness, bome meu think that to strut, aud puu, and swear, is to be manly. To somo the etiseatiala of mauliness are to " toss off their glass like a man," " spend money f reely liko a man," " smoke like a man," " drive a fast horse like a man," forget- ting that virtuo is truo mauliness. JLem peruuce, chastity, truthfulness, lortitude, and beuevolence are tho characteristics and essentials of manlinoss. To be manly is to be honest, generous, brave, uoble, aud pure, in speech and lile. The higher form of inauliuess is godliness. Some one has said, " Au honest man is the noblest work of God," but the uxau who is houest toward God and toward his iellow-man in short, a Cbristian uian is the noblest work of God. John IS. Gough. Ve Courtcous. If the Spectator were a clergyman ho would always aocompany tho weddine ceremony with a briei exhortation, and he would always take for his text, " Be Courteous.

The advico is so good and so well suited to married people, as well as those who intend enteriug that state, that we publish it for the bunetit of sucli persons. 1'reserve sacredly the privaoy of your own house, your marriago state aud your heart. Let no father, motuer, brother or sister, over presumo to come between you two or to sharo the joys or sorrows tnat belong to you two aiono. With God's help build your own quiet world, not allowiug your dearest earthly f rieud to bo the cou tident of aught that concerns your do mestio peace. Let moments of ahenation, if they occur, be healed at once. Nover, uo nover, speak of it outaido, but to each other yield graceiully aud confess, and all will como out right.
