VERMONT WATCHMAN & STATE JOtJRNAL, WEDXESDAY, 8EPTEMBER i), 1891. f arm anb (tautn. Adrireii all Inqulrle. or eoinniunlcatlona IB relatlon to cigrlcuUuro t.) 1R. T. II. IMntli Newport, VI. Edltorlal Nntintr-. BXAHOBOWnfQ is increasing in Ver mont, and beans are found, on the whole, a pajrlng crop, except in very unfavorablc seasons. The ITnmesteml gives some iulvice on the subject, ns follows: " After the beans are ripe thcy sliotild be allowed to stand until the podl are quite dry. l'ull them up by the rooU when moist witb the dew, aud press tho roots together in the haod. Set these handfuls on their tops in windows to dry. When sulli ciently cured lay them on scaffolds or around branched stakes with ttie roots pointing in and the tops dowu. Here they should gtt dry enough for thresh ing. Whetl thrcshed the beans should be cleaned from the chaff in a fanning mill and tpread on a smooth, airy 11 jor to dry. Turn them from tinie to tirac until they are perfcctly cured. If put in barrels before this they will heat and nio'd. If thisplan is carefully followed, both tlic straw and the beans will be clcnr and brtgbt." QOVERNED by our own cxperivncc, wc should modify this aivice consider ably. In years back we li.ive followed the plan of drying the bjaus by rcvtrs ing the handsful in windrows on the rldgei. (The Rometttad niispriuts it " wiudows.") But the recent wet sea sons have not beeu favorable to thal way, especially when we have had a dozen or more acres of l2ans to attend to. Nor do we want to wait until all the pods are quite dry before pulllog. Decidedly the better way is to stack the beans at once, setting two stakes a foot apart and layiug some strips of board crossed on the ground betwecn them. When the leaves are all or nearly all yellow, begin to pull, putting the roots of the handsful alternately between the stakes first one way and then the other, drawiug the stakes together aud tying with wool twine at the top when full,and toppinj the stack with a large handful, tied and re versed. In this way, if the work is carefully done, the beans dry perfectly, witbout any loss by shelllug or mold ing, even if there is a good deal of wet weather, aud also when some are stacked pretty green, liut if pulled too green the beans shnuk in weight, aud the color is irnp.iired. Tiik old way, with branched stack-iug-poles, is a good one, but no better thau the smallur stacks above describcd, White they are not so eaiily handled afterwards. In these sinail stacks they cau be left safcly all winter if desired; but a better way is to get them in as soon as they are well dried. We have a large shed, the loft of which has windows at each eud and an open rloor made of four-iueh boards with iuch spaces. This she.l f.ices the west, and in fair weather, by opening the loft windows aud setting wide the big doors below, we get a strong upward diaft through the beans, which dries them out perfectly, so th.it when the clear, frostv days come it is mere play to tbresh them out; aud they come white, plump aud clean, ueeding very little handpicklng, iudeed; in a deceutly fair seasou, noue at all. Tiik best stakes for these stacks are made of youug cedars about three inches through at the butt aud six feet long, set a foot deep with au irou bar. These, the boards at the bottoru, and even the strings will last quite a uuru ber of seasons, if taken care of. If you want to save the strings, tie with a bow-knot. We are just now (August 28) putting in stack about six acres of spleudid Improved yellow-eyes that we feel sure will thiesh out close to thirty bushels to the acre. In the matter of handling beans after threshing, if they have been prop erly stackeil and well dried, iu tield and loft, before threshing, there is no dan ger of their molding, even in barrels; but we prefer to handle tbe 03 iu bags, which keep them safely, even after such wet seasons as 1889 und 1890. llut we shall have no more diying them on the rows, for a long raiu after pulliog will stain and rot a large per ceutage of the beans when so left. By our present way we can begiu eailier and get through sooner, and have a perfect crop even in the worst season, plantiug only carly sorts, like the Yel-low-eye, or the " Hoss " l'ea-heun. raised to protect Now England agricul ture against that of our sister states." The Jiepnblkan had better read up on the agricultural statistics of New Eng land a little, before talking about " get ting our far.ning done in the West." .Sonie of our hlll farms have been de serted, but very few have been aban doned to grow up to wood which in some cases is a wise thing to do witb rough land that nevtr ought to have bocn cleared. New England farming as a whole was never more productive than now. llailroads have harmed us by slimulating Westcrn competition, and our horue roads have not done as thcy ought in secing that we have equal accominodation in reaching the home markets. Hut it would not takea large, though it is a most important change, to put XewEugland farming on a more prospcrous basis than ever. The Wcit is consuming more and moreof its own produce cvery year, and not getling it much more chciply, all things cou lldered, than the East. AVe are learQ ing to f.irm better, to co-operate, to pro duce more at smnller cost and in more markelnble shape, and it is grossly ab BUrd t'i Ihink New England farming in any more danger from the West than Europran farming. This cIobc compe tition, which is teaching us to farm bet ter, and to haug together in defence of our rights on all sides, really tends to strcngthcn the farming interests of all the Atlantic states. The Republican knows a good deal about a good many things; but about the farming of its own section it is as ignorant as an average cockney about " H imerica." OKall theblankuousensii ever printed coinmend us to the following, from tlie Springjttld Btpublioaiu ''It is Bome what inulancholy to see these country dlttriott of New England, for which our falhers fought so hanl against the suow and the wolves and the Indians, becoming again deterted, and appar ently ahandoncd once more to tl.e for csts aiul the wild beasts.

Head what he says, inwardly retlcct upon it, and consHer how you ought to act, dear reader, on a matter as importaut to-day as was the just setilemcut of Vcrmout's territorial rights in the last century. Vermont showed that she had not lost her breed of nob'.e bloods in the civil war; bu' thsre are mw vic tories of peace as needful to be achieved at home, and as important for the fu ture of our people, as anytbing that has preceded it. Without cducalion a good, souud practical business educa tion, suited to the uature of her indus tries Vermont is in great danger of being left behind unless her people quickly rouse up to a full conception of her'needs. Vermont has suffered much from emigration, but she has suf fered more from the belief of too m i ny of her 8ons and daughters that she is a good state toemigrate from. We have ourself found it agood state to emigrate to, and all we wish in the matter is that more of our people should feel as wc do about it, and be in earnest in mak ing Vermont all she should be, and can easily be,now and hereafter. There is not a better spot to live and be happy in on the footstool than Venn nt. Why should her people lag behiud in theuseofsuch noble ojiportuui'ies as they possesb? Ediicnllnn---AgrlriiHiiraI aud Otherwlse. nv J. W. NKWTON. The aricultural editor wisbea to know what I think "of the likelihood of the farmers of Vermont taking hold and straightening out their cducational wrongs at the next state election." There are sevcral encouraging features in the mitter. To begin with, in 1800 the farmers did not have their ftttentlon especially called to the matter until after the elections, or, at lcast, until af ter the nominations, which in many cases amouuts to an election. Nol withstanding this and the persistetH lobbying of their opponents, a change of only four votcs would have given the farmers the victory. And when we considcr that in 1888 there was scarcely any interest taken in the matter, it does look as though the farmers mighl make themselves feltin '!(2. The press of the state was, witb the exception of the papers puhlished in Burlington, in favor of the proposed reform. In many towns there ii a Farmers' League, and it is not too much to cx pect that this will nnke itself felt in the next election. The prosperity of the Grange is aootber hopeful sign. In fact, I wish the outlook for common school improvemeut looked as hopeful as tiiat of agricultural-college improvc ment. We deprecale the rush to the cities, and yet otTer every loducsmaDt for people to go to the cities. Suppose a man thinks of moving into Vermont, and does not know wliether togoiul) a lown or on to a farm. Ile has chil dreo to cducate, and he asks about the schools. Ile liods that if he goes to a large town, he can Rend them to a graded school nlne mouths in a year, and they can live at home. When they get out ol the comruon school thev can go righl into the high school, liviug at home. and incurrin no extin em mi. I But if the farmer wishes to send his cbil lren to a high school, he must get a place for them near the school, hire them boarded or oblain a room aud they must bjard themselves. He must pay tuition and have the children away from home and out from under his care. Farmers are so used to this sort of thing that probably not one in a liun dred thinks there should be or even can be any difl'erent arraugement. While it must be admitted that a great many of our farmers are' con tented.y iudifferent, as a class, to this great, and everywhere else burning question of cducation," yet here and there are men and womeu wakiug up to the cducational needs of the state. 1 ani not sure but that change and re forrn must come through the iuflueuce of the wives and mothers and sisters. I think that the Orange is doing more for educalion in the state than many people imagine. One thing is ccrtain, the farmers are making a big stir in many of the states, and in a few mouths we shall know more about the great farmers' movement as a power in poli tics. But when you come right dowu to it, things are never right in this world and will not be until a mightier than any buman band sets things to rights. Iluman history is a sad, dark story, but 1 belhvc there is more of real humau comtortand lack of toil, prl vation and want bere on the farms of New England than in any other part of the world. But these comforlable hoiues were won from the wilderuess by hardship aud Buffenng, and vigilance is nceded to guard them from the evils of ign rance aud the grasping sellish ness of man. Tiik Hanover murder is a fearfu! les son to New England farmers to be more careful aa to whom they admit into their homes, iu the capacity of farm belp. We hope the lesson will sink deep into every tuind. As to Almy bhnielf, it is well saiJ that be " killed au inuocent girl, killed her with out provocation, and for no cause save that she was so far his superior that he cou'd not drag her down to his level, and determined to put her out of ex istence. This is the spirit of the iu carnate cvil. It hates the good bccause it is good. It destroys honor, truth aud virtue whenever they cau be found. No sympathy should be given to such a man." No let no more such crimes be made possible ou New England farms by the carelessnesB of their oc cupanUi Tiik Muine Farmer well says: " There is altogether too much hobby-teaching in our public Bchools. Wc shall do well when we break from some of the old liues, aud send our scholars to school to be taught helpful leBsons. There is au urgent call for reorganizalion of the whole system of iustruction in accord ance with the needs of to-day, and uot after the cold forms of yesterday. This necessitates the introductiou of practi cal lines of iustruction, and then will insure men and women oapable l doing the work of to-day in the best possible mauner." An exchange says: " President Ilar rison in one brief eentcnce pretented the scieuce of sound finauee during his speech at Albany, and his positiou will be heartily eudorsed by members of all political parties iu the East. Said he: ' I believe that every dollar, wbether papar or coin, iasued or stamped by the general governiuent, should always and everywhere be as good as auy other dollar.'" This is true and well lald; ltut does not auy dollar gnaranteed by the American uation come within the president's category? It seems to us that prudence might require a Btricter statemeut. There ia Bueh a thing aB being too foud of epigrarn. Wk all have had more or less trouble in keeplng seed potatoes iu house cel lars. A wiiter in the Stockman und Farmer says: " We have kept them perfecth until plantiug tiroe thfsspring in the following manner: They were kept in the barn uuill cold weather. Elght iuches of siraw was then Bpread ou the ground in a diy pocitiou, the potntoei placed on top of tbis, A cov eril g of ilrce luihes of straw and ten iucbes of boII was BufHuieut until the Diercury reached the zero point, wheu ten ii c lea o( tra.v a id ome coro-foJ-der woiD pluCed over ibe Boii.

Tiik question as to whether animals shall be kept for spccial or general uses is largely lo be determined by conditlons, ai lcealitv, natnral produc tion, markets, and various other things. BKAB in mind that your ducklings iire Voraolout, but as they grow rapidly tnd reach the market in half the time required for cbieks, they do not cost any more per pound to produce than do ublcki. PAPKR money has so many advan lages that its continued use is certain; but the more stable and sound the basis ii which it rests the better. Our na liou cannot afford to make any reckless cxperimeut. As ducks rarely have an ea'.abllihed uest, but usually lay wherever they chance to be, they should be conflned to a shed or small enclosure until eight or nine o'clock in the forenoon, that tlie eggs may be found. " OVER 3,000 interested Cana dian people luve visited their agricul lural collcge at Guelph, the present -ummer, on cxcursions. Hadu't Maiue better wake up?" asks the Maine Furmtr. Vermont, too! In England, mauures applied to the Joil by the tenant have to be paid for if iic leaves before they are exhausted. Tne English farm papers frequently contaiu rcports of legjl actions brought 10 determine the value of manures. It is a well established fact that but ter mells at ninety to ninety-two de ,'rees: oleomargarine requires from one nunarea to one nunared and twenty legiees of heat to melt it, and tbere lore oleomargarine is almost indigesti ble in the bum.in stomach. IiEMEMBERING that this i an agricult ural country, it is a somewhat strange uircumstance that we last year imported lor food purposes more than five times as tn iny sheep as we exported for the .-anie purpose, the importations liaviug icached 830,153 head, against exiiorts of barely 60,047 head. Tiik really meritorious varieties of tboroughbrea heas are Plymouth Rocks, ijigbt Brahmas and Ijegborns. They are the three great staple breeds of the I'ancier and farmer. They are valua ble in themselves, and imniess their superiority upon tbe common run of lowls wlien crossed with them. A comi'utation by the American Agriculturist piaces the corn crop of 1891 2,000,000,000 busbels; tbe wheat crop, 600,000,000 bushels aud oata (i-J-J.-0(10,1100 hunlifls. This agtrregate crop p y,l-J-2,000,000 bushels is 28 8 per cent greater than last year'a, and 14 7 per i-eut biglier than the average for the eleven preceding years. Wk can't say tbat wc long for the days of ' Auld Laug Syne,' or ihe re turn if the plnning-wntel, but we do believe tbat il they were more geuerai in the la m-honns of America, and the good old-faabi uied woolen yarn made for stocklnga, Ihat there would be hsi cause for some of the diseaaei arisintt from bavlng cold feet," sajs the Stock man nnd Fariner. Ax old Maasacbusetts law of the seventeeuih ceutury says: "If auy dogge shall kill auy iheepe, the owner hall tither hange hU dogge forthwith r pay double damage for ye iheepe. If ye dogge bath been Been to course ir bite any hheepe before, uot being sette on, and his owner had nolice Ibereof, then be shall both bauge his dogge aud pay for ye sheepe." Tiik trouble of robblng always ariscs at tbe close of the honey season. Take precautioni in this matter aml do not leiive honey c.trelessly lying around. l)o not have blvel open or eraeks and ciev 0' 8 iu tbeturplu lloriei. The bees always liud such, and uotblng of the kind escapes their nolice. Robblng is often startid by thc aspirant's removal Of turplui honey abuut the close of the season. Tiik ntlk at the Stowe (Vt.) creamerv is teated by the Beimling method. It lakei twenty to tweniy-six pouuds of milk to inake a pound of butler. A re ward has beeu offered lo the dairy bringing the btst milk for thc season.
