VERMONT WATCHMAN & STATB JOU11NAX: WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 21, 1896.
G AGRICULTURAL, Iliiylti,' Fccd. Odo ndvantngo tlint tho buttor dniry hns 1b tho fact tbat 110 fertllity noea o(T Iho fnrm wlicn ouly butter ls sold. At ptcsunt thoro 1s n grent ndviintngo in linvirjg jrrnln so low In prlcc. Uutlcr is low. If ono cau buygrnin ub low iic corditifly, bo is fnr butter olT Uiuti lio would bo with Kfnin nt tho old prico; but, liowever lowgrain 1s, fnrmorr nccd to uso thclr brnlns lu buylng feed. Thoao who nro uot well iuforraed oro llnblo to serlous mistnkce. When ono is buylng feed, ho should not ouly buy foed but fcrtilizcr. It h prctty well known tlint u ton of coltor.-ccd mcnl contnins nbout $2o to 23 woclh of plant food, as niuch ns a ton of inany kinds of fcrtilizers. You can tako tlint ton of cottou-Eccd incal and fccd it to your cows. When hay is worth 10 to 812 per ton, your ton of cotton-sucd menl is worth about 10 tor cow feed. Thon your tnanurc pilo will, if all tho liquid and solld porlions aro carofully Bavcd, bo worth about $18 to $20 ruoro for tlio colton-secd mcal. Souuds liko a big stoiy, docsn't it? But it is just what tho cxpcriment stations tell us. Afraid to feed tho stufl? Well, try lineccd mcol. Thoy don't tell quite so big storlc8 about that, and it is per fcctly 8afo. It cotts more than colton secd racal, but comes noxt to it in ma nurial and fceding valucs. A ton of it ha8 a valuo of 21 as fortilizer, 30 to 34 as feed, and tho rnanurinl valuo would bo about 15. J. W. Snnborn said years ago that tbis way of feeding fortilizer to tho cows was eating your cako and having it, too; ni.d it does conio about as near that bb anything Iho farmcr gctB hcld of. Tho only thing that beats it in tho farming lino is growing clover and get ting fortilizer out of tho air to feed to your stock. It's away ahead of freo eilver for helping tho fartncrs, and, if Bryan would only go to talking it to his farmur audiences, ho would do thcm lots ruoro good than by anything ho bas said. You see a farmer uowadnys can't afford to bo ignorant of such thinge. Thero aro not mauy of them rich cnough to afford such a luxury as ignorance. Thero is no excuse at all aDy more for being without tho knowledgo of sorao of these simple principles of up-to-dato farming. Prtrmors must learn. Kuowl edge is power. Useful JHcrohes. Most farmers know aomethiug of tho harmful microbes or bacteria, becauso tho discoveries of scieutillc mon havo Bhown that many of tho most fatal dis eases aro tho result of tho action of thoao organisms in tho buman body. PeyerSj tuberculous consumption, dipli therla, cholera, RD'l many ter dis eases, aro fanyllurexatuples of this clnsB of dieeases. So, too, all putrcfactlon and fermentation are tho work of mi croscopic organisms. Thoy scem to oxist evorywhero in naturo, and have a great deal to do with tho well-being or destruction of all earlhly beings. White many of them uro harmless, many moro aro not only harmlcss but most useful in various waye. Somo weeks ago wo uoted tho fact that Prof. Conn had proved that good and bad flavors in buttor wero caused by bactria, and that ho had devisud means to propagato and dlsseminato a baoterium which produccd a flno llavor. Now tho pa pcrs aro dtscussing anothcr uso of bac teria in agriculturo. It is wu'l known that certain plants havo power to tako nitrogen from tho air and storo it up in their roots and othor parts, eo that it becomos nvail ablo to farmers for fertilizer. ThiB power of theao planU is now known to bo wholly duo to tbe action of bactoria. Theso bactoria or microbes do not work on tho roots of oats, wheat, buck wheot,barley and graBS. But thoy do oxUt, raultiply, and do tholr boneflcent work upon tho roots of clover, pcas, beans, votchcs, and all leguniinous plants. This being tho caBe, it follows that oven clovor and other lcgumcs cannot acquire nitrogen from tho air unless tho bactoria which do tho work aro present. It is now known that ono cause of tho failure of UieBO plants is duo to tho absonco of gcrms of tho epecial form of bacteria which does this nitrogcn-gathering work. But it has alsoboen found that if aBoil is des tituto of tho propcr bactoria, thoy can bo artiDclally introduced, and, as they propagato veiy rapidly, their disaemi nation ia not a vory difllcult raatter. All that ia needed is somo convenient mothodof acaitoring tho gerra8, apores or secda of tho bacteria upon tho soll whoro they aro needed. A crudo and coBtly wny was to scatter boII from flelds known to bo proporly inoculated with tho noceesary bacteria, Whilo this was effcctive, thero woro many roaaona wby it was not profitablo or practlcablo. It reraoved eood boII from ono field, and thus injurcd it to beneflt another, and was Impractlcablo to any but wealthy farmers on accouut of tho labor and exponso involved. Now, howovor, Trofojsor Nobbo of Saxony has introduced on entiroly now method of inoculntlng ilolds with nl- trogen-prodticlng, or, rather, accumu latlng, bacteria. A 1 kinds of bactoria aro plants or vogctablo organiams, and will multiply exccedlngly fast if aupplicd with tho propor couditions. Thoy aro cultivatcd in laboratorlcs iu a jolly liko Bubatance modo from a specios of Boawecd. ProfcBsor Nobbo has timply cultlvated or propngoted tho bactoria of tho various dovors and othor lo eutues, usingtho ordinaryagar-gdatlno solutlon, and thon plneing onough to ln oculato half ati acro in acarelully soaled bottlo to sell to farmers. Ho hos namcd this product " Nitragiu," and suggcsts two woys of applying it. Ono is to di luto tho Bolutiou with a stmill quantity of watcr and with it to moisten tho eeed to bo sown. Tho other is to uso a lorgo quantity of wator and moistcu about fifty pounds of oarth. This is to dried and thon mixed with moro carth and tho wholo scaltored over tho llcld. This work may mean that formers, oven Vermont farmors, may savo thou sands of dollars by using lcguminous crops for feod und green imuuring, their euccessful growlh bclng iusurcd by tho uso of commercial " Nitrogin." Wo believo that ono reaeou why tho horsc-bcan failed in this stato was ow iug to the laek of tho propor bacteria in tho 8o:l, and wo hopo thot this, and not somothing moro difllcult to over como, is tho cause of bo rauch fnilurc in growing erimson clover. It may bo, too, that failures in red clover ariso from tho samo cause. Good nnd Ponr IMouiiif,'. During tho next sixty days moro or lc68 plowing will bo dono upon hun dreds of thoiisands of farms. Tho do greo of skill with which this work is dono will go vory far toward determin ing tho yield of tho crops which tho land will produco In tho com ing year. Yet, plowing seems to bo a very simplo oneration. Almost unybody can do tho work, after a fnsh- lon, and quite a largo proportion of tho farmers scem to think that thcv, or their bovs, or their hired men. cau do ii well enough. Somo of theso peoplo aro cxpeits in this lino of work, but muny ot tncm laii very tar oeiow tno aiandard which every plowman ought to reacti. io uo tno plowing as it should bo douo rcquires very closo at tcntion and no small degrco of skill. It is not eveiy ono who can do perfcct work with tho plow, aud thero aro mul titudcs of men who do notdo as well as they know how. This is bad, but what must be conBidered a worso feature of the case is secn in tho fact that tho great majorily of farmers do not ap preciato the lmportance ofhivingtho land plowed well. If they realized how much depends upon haviug their work dono as perfectly as possiblc, they would learn more about tho mothods of doing it and would miiko hasto to put their knowledgo into practico. It is thought, by mary, that poor plowing can bo fully atoued for by extra work with the harrow or pulvcrizer, but this is an expensivo error. Tho ovils of such plowiug cannot be wholly rectiOed, and the man who will tlight this work will not bo oxtreraely particular about tho manncr in which tho succecding opora tions of tillago are performed, Practi cal Farmer.

SrEOIAI. DISI'ATOII FltOM BOSTOlf.J Not ouly wcak and ailing men, but thoao in heolth, uro indebtod to Dr. Grcouo of 34 Ttmplo Piace, Boslon, JLise., for his brilliunt Bostou Music llall lecturcs. Tho weak and niling, becauso ho has polnted out to them tho means of ro covcring their health, Btrcngth and vi .-or; thoso iu houlth, becauso ho has showu tho rocks and quicksunds whero muny a gullnnt ltfo burk has bccu wrcckrd. Dr. Grecno was listoncd to with al most brcathloas ullontion by tho largo audieuco of men, who filt that thty wero hcaring tho words of truth anu wisdom full from tho lips of ono as cmiuent for his medical skill as ho is distinguishcd for his discoveries in tho domain of renndiea, and famcd for his marvelous curcs. In fact, thero is no physician in activo practico to-day so well fltted, ao cmiuently qualifled to discusa tho coudiliona brougbt about by overwork, imprudeuco and exctases aa Dr. Greeno. Ho hus mado tho cauaos of tho loas of vitplity aud vigor in mcu and tho conditions of dcbllity and pre maturo decay tho study of his life, as thoso who liBtcnid to him could casily diecern. Dr. Grecno graphically dcscribcd tho grndual processes by which thoso in poasestion of health and vigor reach n condition of debility and nervous proB tratioo, tho succesaivo stepannd stoges of decay. Nothing can be moro iu sidiotH than tho approach of tbis foe of, human happiness, tho prematuro decay of tho physical powors. It is tho more insidious from tho fact that it does not always manifest itself in pbyfiical forma, but often in montol deterioration, bcginning with melancholia and by phochoudria8is. Thero is a loss of spirils, tho eubjcct is ovorshadowed by gloom, and there is au over present ap nrehonaion of impending disaster. Tho lutimato connection of tho body and miud is thus shown, tho decay of tho physical powers ilnding its Urst mani fcstation iu mental disturbances. Ab tho malady makes progress the physicol disorders Bhow themselves. Tho body becomoj weak. Thoro is a consciousness of loss of vigor und vital ity that cauaes tho utmoat ularm; the heart bccomes affectcd functionally, palpitation ensucs on tho least exertiou. Dyspepsia is a feature which frequently introduces itself a this slago and with it come attacks of dizzineBs accompanicd by drowBiucss and au indisposition to txertion. In timo stomach, ltver, kid neys and bowels becomo functionally disordered. Tho subject sighs often, there ia a difllculty of breathiug at timee, pain in tho rightorleft shoulder or botb, and somctimes in tho chcst aud abdomcn. Tho ncrvousness increaaes with every atago of progrcss, and tho most teartui imasinings arc tnc rosuit. rnoy nroduce wakefulneBS at night, or when sleop comes dreams and visions onsue. Comnlete devitalization follows, ond tuougti tne victim may ncar un braveiy, ' aud uee overy efforl to conctal from , his rncnus tne tact tnat no is navinc l tho pcnally for his errors and indis- I crotions, it is all too apparent to tncm that thero is something wrong with him. Tho complcxion has lost its healthful tint, tbe color has gone from tho cheebs, tno skin has becomo of a dull Uadcn huo or tikon on u sickly yellowiah tinge that is unpleasant to look upon; tho oye naB necome dull and lifeless, its brigbtnces and sparklo gone, tlio Btop na8 lost its springy elas ticity and becomo feeblo and lagging, tbe taco hus lost its vivncity and much of its exprossion, and tho orcct pose of the lortu can no moro no maintoincd savo by strong physical effort and dc termiuation of tho will, neither of which can be long suatained. Naturo is compelliug tho victim to honor iho drafts ho has mado on hcr in tho days of his health and vigor. In tho prido of his physicol powor ho mado an overestimato of the strength of his vital resources, and now ho would uivo all ho is worth for tho privilego of be ginning all over agaio. Repentanco has come, and on overwhclming regrot that he had not tho ccmmon eonso and the prudenco to livo rationally, and in harmony with thelaws of his being and those of" soclety. But how much IncreuBed is tho ca lamily if at this timo tho victim of ira prudenco and indiacrellon is engaged to raarry. With shattered nerves, a conatitution dovitalized, a prey to mel ancholia and tho blues, without hopo, can ho contcmplote tho obligalion to which ho has commilted himstilf with out droad? Impossiblo. With the conBciouBue88 of his condition tho obli galion adds to his misery, and increases his misfortuno a thousandfold. But all is not lost. Thero is still hopo, atill a road to recovory for oven tho mott desperato case. Dr. Greono now turncd to tho bright side of tho piclure and painted that in euch glow inu colora that thero was no furthor roaeon for any ono to despair. Dr. Grecno has made this condition of weaknee8, of montal and physical de bility tne atuay oi tiis lilo. PosseBsod of a brillinnt and pcuotrativo mind, an indetatlgauiuty in rcsenrcu and Invee tigatlon, ho has eucceeded in diocovor inc the truo remedlcs for tho rcstora- lion of tho wcak and suffering. After yeara ot unwearieu investigaiton and experimont ho discovorcd tho only t-lllcucinua mediclnes that havo over beon applied successfully to tho curo of this woakoning and cxhausling die- ease.
