AGRICULTURAL, Tho Homo Mlxlng ot Fertilizers. Thcro 1s no grcnt socret nbout lt. All you nood In ordorto do lt ia lo hovo tho chomlcala,ogood floor and obIiovoI. If in nddltion to thia, you can got n largo coarao siovo liko n gravcl scroon such os moaon's uso, lt will bo n holp to you. Acld phosphato is olways flno und without lutnps unlo8s lt haa lald In a domp placo whon lt is npt to bccorao lumpy. Muriato of potoah is noarly nlways moro or loes lumpy, and tho lumps nocd to bo crushcd. Tho samo is truo of uitrato of soda. Tho solvo onablos ono to soparato tho lumps for crushing, but whoro thoro is uo such thing, tho following plan works wcll; Bupposo you docldo to uso on nn acro 200 pouuds ncid phosphato, 100 pouuds muriato potnsb, and C0 pouuds nitrato Boda, you would wolgh out C0 pounds of tho flrst and sprcad it on tho floor, thon 25 pounds of tho sccond sprcad ovor that, thon 12 or 13 pounds ot tho third sproad over tho pilo. Thon be gin again and put anothor C0 pounds of tho acld phosphato ou tho pilo, thon go on with tho othors until you had woighod out onough for an acro. Tho best way to moasuro is to havo a pail or sihillnr vcsscl into wblcb you can put o wcighed quantily na say 25 pounds, thcn it Is iar casior to mcasuro than to woigh. Aftor tho pilo is woighed, tako o ahovel (not a round pointed ono) and shovel the pilo ovor sovcral tlmes, throwing tho fertilizer up iuto a pilo high in tho conter. Thon tho lumps will fall to tho outslde and canjbo crusbod with a block of wood with a handlo sot in it. Tho lumps aro not hard to crush, and if a few go in, it is no great mattor. Tho only roal troublo is with tho proportion of tho chcmicals to mix. But this nccd not bo greatly in tho way. Every New Englaud oxporiment station has bulle tins containing printcd formulas for various crops, and thoso aro sont freo to thoso wbo wisb to uso them. But it Is far bettor for oach fariner to try to fiud out just what his soils nced than to trust to any ono olso to tell hirn what to uso. Somo soila necd potaah, but do not nee pbcsphoric acid. Qth- cra aro tho opjiCS'.tG. Somo soils nccd nitrogcn, othors do not. So each fatm or should cxporimcnt to find out what his soil nccds. Mauy of tho ordinary fortilizers contain very little potash, whilo most soils in Now England aro deflcient in tbis. A rcason for tho poor success mauy havo with fertilizers may bo found in this. Tho remcdy is not to givo up using fertilizers, for it is not possiblo to got along without them on most soils, but thoy should bo adapt cd to tho neods of tho soil and crops. It is a disputcd qucstion whethor wo should place the ncods of the soil or of tho crops flrst, but most anthorities Bay, suit your fertilizers to the ncods of tho soil. Still it is wcll to considcr tho needs of tho crops you aro going to grow, and to atudy tho analyses of these. Thero is no lack of printcd in formation on thoso subjects, tho only lack is in tho farmers thomsolves 11 nd ing or taking timo to read aud study the information that is theirs for tho asking. It cannot bo too much insist ed upon that the modorn farmer must bo a reading man in ordor to be a suc cossful farmor. This Bubject of for tilizers woll illustrates tho necd of study on tho part of tho farmor. It is estab liBhcd that a saving of from $5 to $10 can bo made on each ton of fertilizer used, and tho mechanical part of mix ing roally amounts to nothing. It is tho hoadwork that tclls, it is the knowl odgo that is lacking on the part of the farmers.

Think of having bud rooms covorod with layera of moulding (lourpaato to foed vormln, with papor to hido them and to abaorb tho moiaturo of respiration, and an anlraal gluo culturo ground on its faco for dlseaso gorras; this having strong colors nddod like a Yaluablo Farm Composts. I wastcd hundrods of tons of manuro boforo I adoptcd a plan of composting all fortillzlng tnatorial. I top-uroBsod raoadow lanu, and Bomotlmcs gaincd a good proflt by it. but if dry wcathor fol fowcd I lost tho bottor part of tho food elements, and somotlmes noarly all of it. I draggcd tho mcodowa flrst, and thon ngaln aftor putting on tho fortll izors; a plan always to bo commondod. But stlll I was wasting what I could not afford to loso. Mcanwhllo thoro was a grcat supply of huraus tnatorial, that could not bo usod at all in this way, such as autumn lcavcs and old straw. Thoso I ofton used for mulch ing, and got somo bonoflt from them, but thoy linally for tho most part sont bnck thelr olemonts into tho alr. My flrst losson wns composting lcavcs with coal ashcs. I found that coal ashcB was of groat bonollt on clay soil, onabling tho land to rccclvo fortillzlng olemonts from tho alr, whilo tho valuo as mulch waa also considoroblo. Mlxed with lcavcs, I found that tho lcavos woro turned moro readily lo humus, and tho rcBultant was a usoful matorial to plow into clay soil. Thon I bcgan tho plan, which 1 now pursuo, of com posting ovorything that would mako fortilizing material. I havo nino acros; onc-half is ornamontal hedges, drivcs and lawna, tho othcr half in fruit gor don. Whon I took thia placo I could not got half a ton of grass to tho acro. Now I soil from 8800 to $1,000 worth of bcrrica and fruit, incluuing honoy and othor itcms. Bosides this wo uso all that wo dcsiro of fruit, oggs, milk and vegetables, ccrtainly not less than $400 worth ovory yoar. I havo stoppcd buyiug commorcial fortilizers altogeth or, and apply composts only. Thero aro flvo compost piles, kopt constantly in thoproccssof making aud distributing. Thoy aro placed where most convonient of accees. and most convcniont for boing appliod. They aro by no means mado ou tho uniform systcm. But as a rulo I got a largo basis of autumn lcavos. On this in win tor aro placcd all the coal ashcs I can make, or procuro of othors. Layorcd with thoso aro loads of barn-yard ma nure. Added aro loads of wasto of all Borts. It is surprising how much of this matorial one will flnd when bo haB onco begun to look for it. Thoro aro sure to bo neighbors throwing away what you know tho valuo of, and can gct for drawing away, or for a small Bum. It is Bcldom that a fow loads of old plastor or limo cannot bo got, where house rcpairs aro going on, This is in valuable, If thero are boarding boutea near, their refuso piles are suro to bo rich in fortilizing material. Mcau while I noyer overlook tho chanco to obtain coal ashes. These generally contain consldcrablo wood ashcB, but aro of themBclvca important. In tho spriug turf is frequently pro curable, soil from ditches, road wasto with manure, muck, and in all cases thcre is a great supply of wecde. All of these matorials go into my piles. Timo is nevcr conBidcred lost that brings homo tho stuff that noarly every one is glad to got rid of. Whon my gardens aro supplying weeds theso aro nover thrown away. Thoy aro mado of the bcst matorial that tho air can furniah, and matorially aid the compost pilo. 1 havo arranged ono of my com post hoaps in a swalo bolow tho house, bo that I can conducl tho house sowcr into it, and mako it a cess not a ccas pool, for it is nover foul, and rarely wet. By using a fork onco or twico a week, it is kept ncat looking, whilo tho wholo mass is bccoming pcrmcated with nitrogonoua doposits. This is somothiDg liko flvo rods from tho house, and constitutes tho best mcthod of disposing of house wasto that I havo yet seen deviBcd. Tho pileB go on building all summor, but aro nover forkcd or turncd over. In tho sido of each a fow equash hills may bo made, and tho vinos will mako the heapa sightly if not ornamental. But in October oach pilo ia carofully forked and mixed. You will flnd that your leavea havo becomo well rotted, and ready to make flrst-rate humus. The ashes aro blended with tho ma nuro, and will not only lighton tho soil, but alBO incrcaso the power of tho ma nuro to receive nitrogeu. Whon thor oughly blended tho compost is applicd to gardens as needod. Strawberry beds are covered freoly, not to quite hide tho plants, with the result of not only enriching tho beds, but mulching them for the winter. The samo compoBt is usod for top-drcBSing graBs; whilo that which ia richest in muck and lcaf mold is used in raspberry gardena. The compost piles aro the Balvation of my placo, tho sourco of wealth, and the pledgo of success. To visitors I point them out, saying, "I run my Elace with thoso." The most barron uolls are now rich gardens, and grow ing richer, in spito of the heavy crops which are annually taken from them. E. P. Powell of Now York. in Now England HomcBtead.

WEEKLY TRIBUNE THE GREAT NATIONAL FAMILY NEWSPAPER For FARMERS and VILLACERS, and your Favorite Homo Paper, The Vermont Watchman, IT IS I5ASY. It is oasy for any ono to uudorstand that Alabaatino, the baaia of which is a cement that when applied to any cloan, solid aurfaco gocs through a proceaa of sottlng and grows hurd with ago, should bo durablo, that le, not rub and Bcalo off, but admit of recoatlug from timo to timo without haylug to wash and scrapo off its old coats boforo ronowing, It ia equally plaln that all kalaominos oro the m 1 1 tnr mmr y I I M h Forcit Ciiltlvntlon, An oxcccdlDcly intoreeting ond at trnclivo undortoKing is proposcd in tho bill which Mr. 8towart of Ithaca in troduccd ln tho Sonato on WcdncB dny. It providcs for a prnctlcol cx pcrlmnnt in foroetry, on a suitablo ecalo, undor tho dircction of Cornoll Unlvorsity. ond its prlmory purpoao is to Bhow tno peoplo of Now York how tliolr forcst domnin oughtto bo troatcd. Tlio scctlon of tho Constitution adopt cd ln 1804 which rclotos to tho forcsts Uosfollows: "Tho londs ofthoStatc, now owned or hcrooftor acquirod, con stitutlng tho. forcst presorvo as now flxcd by law, ahall bo forovor kopt as wlld foreat londs. Thoy Bhall not bo lcoscd, aold or oxchonged, or bo takon by any cornoration, public or privoto, nor sUoll tho timbor thorcon bo aold, roraovcd or dcstroyod." It is fair to assumo thot Mr. Stowort's bill, of which Govornor Block is known to bo tho sponaor, doea not conflict with tho luttor, os it ccrtainly does not with tho splrit, of this acction. Tho constltu tionol prohibition, os ovory ono who followod tho prococdingBof tho convon lion knows, doca not aignify that tho dolegotea who wero most octivo in ao curing its odoption by a unanimous voto supposcd that tho total ncglcct of for cats was truo forcstry. Thoy cloarly rccognizcd tho fact that tho prohibi tion was not Bciontiflc, ond thot it ought not to bo tho pormanont policy of tho Stato. But thoy had bccomo convinccd that its enforcoment for a period of years wob neceasary to stop tho ruln which bad forcst monagemcnt and lox public sontlment wero pormlt ting; their oxpectotion boing that knowlcdKO would increaso and ulti motoly lcod to tho establlshmcnt of a sciontillc syatom euch ob foroign na tlonB hovo mado highly profltablo. Govornor Black'a proposal 1b, thcro foro, n direct contribution to tho objcct which tho convention hod ln vlow. Hia bill providcs thot tho Stato sholl acquiro o foroat tract of 25,000 ocrcs in tho Adirondack region, nnd givo the uso of it during n period of twenty-flve yoars to Cornoll, on condition that tho Unlvorsity ahall cultlvato lt iu accord onco with tho principles which oxperi onco has opproved. His belief is that tho result will completely domonstrato tho ossibilittcs of bo managing the forcats as not only to preservo all the beneflls which their influeuco on cli moto aud waterflow produces, but olao to derivo o conaidorablo rovonuo from them whilo their beouty conBtontly in crcasos. Nor is thoro onything fantaa tic in this onticipation. Govornor Black has not ovolved a theory or made any now diecovery. It ia to his credit that study and obaervation have led him to accept as applicablo to us tho concluaiona which have beon ea tablished elsewhoro, and ho wisoly sug geata o plan by which ri8k will bo largo ly avoidcd and favorable conditiona crcated. If it wero propoaed to put the experi mout in chargo of o burcau or commis sion tho presumption might bo that it would fail. Undor tho control of Cor noll Univeraity, which is williug to ac cept tho truat and would probably or ganizo a Bchool of forestry through which to administor it, tho scheiue ought to succeed. There ia acarcely any other flold of knowledgo which haa beon so neglectcd in the United Statea. Now York hos indeed been making progrcss in enlightonmcnt, and in re cont years has turncd it to practical ac count by increoaing her forest holdinge, until now thoy amount to moro tban 800,000 acrcs. It ia not too soon to consider how this great posaeasion can bo mado most useful to tho Stato through all tho yeara to come, and Buch on cxperiment in foreet cultivation as tho Scnato bill propoees is a logical flrst step toword tho adoption of a aci cntiflc ayatem. New York Tribune. Tho Mnplo Iudustry. Somo unaolved probloma of former yeore remain to vex tho manufaoturor of raaplo Bweets. Perhaps chief among theao is tho poaBibility of marketing the product for juat wnatit is, circum venting tho nefarious oporationa of certain middlemon who aro ao prone to odultorate deoply, putting tho product out aa a pure urticle. Thia hurta in two ways. It rostricts tho market for tho gonuino syrup and sugar, and also weans consumers away from the truo product becauso they are so frequently imposed upon with these sophistica tions. Tho forming of tho trado bu rcau of Vermont manufacturers to market tho product undor a state label will bo watchcd with interest in other maple producing sections. Though a minor difllculty, ellmina tion of nitor from tho sap ls still in evi donco. This nulsanco is known under various names, nitor, malato of lime, sllica, Bugar sand, otc.

Our columns last yoar contained tho testi mony of many eminent authoritios aa to tho beBt means of elimination nitor, but the fact of it still remains.

Tho car mills are gettlng their shareof the early spring trade, and thoso mllla favorably situated are vory well sup plled with orders.
