VERMONT WATCHMAN & STATE JOUUNAL, WEDNESDAY AUGUST .17, 1898, AGRICULTURAL. Tlie Mnko U) of tho Kow Englniid Farmer. Tho uativo Now Englaudor has tho grcat advantago of bclug dcace'ndcd froni a llno of auccstry notcd for tho inost part for their euorgy, thrift, in tolllgonco, pationco, and porsovoranco. Otbcr nntlonnlities liko tho Scotch havo nioro or lcss of thcso charactcris ticB, nnd whorovcr you flnd a peoplo thus charactorized, you will flnd pros pority, and a high dcgrco of civiliza tion. Thus New England 1b ono of tho moat civilized communiticB on tbo carth. Llvo In Vermont thirty or forty years and then go outaido of Now England west or south and you will find wldc dlfferenccB; uaually thero wili bo lesa of culture and tbrift. Of coureo thero are many spots ono can find wbero tbo peoplo aro of Now England stock and aro tho cquals of tho dwellera In tbo old home, but tak ing tbo wholo country througb, a mau finds characteristics in tbat little cor lior of tho land tbat ho does not find clBowhere. Tho farmors havo many of thcm had a hard timo, what Buccesa they have attained haa beeu wreated from a soil which a weatern farmcr would desplBo and turn hla back upon. Ilenco he bad to have tbo power for bard work, and tho ability to turn off a grcat deal of work and yet do it well. IJut a man ehould not go too far in hard work. Many a man and very many womon have died long beforc their time, just because of overwork. And it is very doubtful if their work waa worth their lives. They had a thouaand times bet ter have worked leaa and lived longer. It ia the greateat folly for peoplo to kill themaelves by overwork when tbere ie no call for it, when they aro only work ing to get a little more of this world'a property. Then on the other hand, there are many people who for tho lackof a little energy and pusli and hard,, work aro poor, aomo very poor, lacking evcn tho comforta of life. But the Now England farmer ia gen erallyiof a working kind. He haa got a home by sticking to hia work, ho sticks to a job till it is done. And then he knows the value of a dollar. Hia money comea hard, and he is not carc less with it. But here aa in work there ore two extremes. A peraon may bo too aaving for hia own good, or he may too liberal. It ia tho right path wo wantj to walk in. Lota of peoplo are ready cnough to apend money on them aelves, Jfor.tobacco or some aimilar folly, whenjthey are very aaving if othera of their own families need anything. Far mers need to watch themaelves aa to this. Some mcn have got into such a habit of aaving that they are not will ing their wivea and children should have things which they very much need aud ought to have. Many a man haa thus aaved aud hoarded up money nnd property to leavo to his cbil dren, hurting them both by refuaing themjeducation and oiher needed things when they were young, and by leaving them aj fortune which they had no traiuing to care for and aoon lost. Bet- ter far to give children advantages when they are young, teach them to UBe4money, give them as good an edu cation aa they can be afforded, and leavo them lesa when you die. Ono characterialic of theao farmers ia their quick adaptation to new condi tiona. Take the silo. Go south and you will not find in many parts of the south a aingle silo, will not find a man whohaaJoven aeen ono. Tho northern farmer haa changed and kept up with the timea and is fairly proaperoua. The aouthern farmer has fallen back behind and haa no prospcrity. Tho weatern farmer has run ahcad of tho times and he haa bcen a Borry being for ycara, but now prosperity haB Btruck him hard in many parts, and he is getting on to hia feet onco moro. It is not well to bo too faBt or too alow in going on with tho timea. Better not to got ahead of them nor fall behind, but keep right along ao aa to bo thero on time. It takea good judgment to know how to do this, 'but tho northern farmer has that aa a part of hiB inhoritanco. His fathers know when to leavo Old Eng land and when to cut freo from her, and the modorn Yankee farmor has been blesaed with wiadom to do a great many thinga at the right time. Strongth of body, Boundness of miud, ability to work, careful managemont, and wiso adaptation to exlsting condi tions, theso arosomo of tho parts of the make-up of tho Now England farmer. Mra.

ConiposlUoti of Coru l'lnnt, Whon tho coru is rlno or nearlv ao, tho dry mattor which tho crop containB is found. about onc-half in tho cars, less than a third in tho atalks, and onc- fitth in tbo loavcs. About onc-half of tho total proteiu (flesh formlng) con tont of tbo plaut, 58 por cont of tho albuminold nitrogon, C4.7 por cont of tho nitrogon freo oxtract and but 17.4 of tbo aah elemontB aro fouud in tho cars. In tho caso of swoot coru 25 por cont of tho total dry mattor, G3 of tho protoin and 00 J- per cont of tho nitro gon freo oxtract woro found in tho cars. Of sorghum tho largor sharo of tho total weight in dry mattor is louutt m tho stalks; but, on tbo othor hand, 45 per cont of tho protoin is in tho leaves, n little moro than a third in tho tops and lcss than a flfth in tbo stalks. Those oxporiments go to show that in harveBling eituor ot tucso torago crops attention ehould bo glven to tho pro scrvation of tho lcavca and stalks, ainco thoy contain bo largo a proportion of tho nutritivo ingredionls. In 1807 it waa found that when tho coru was ncarly ripo lcss than half the dry mat tor was in tho oars, tho othor half be ing about cqually dividcd betwoon tho stalks and lcavca. Ono way of prcBcrving tho fodder in good shapo for fceding ia to put both oars and fodder into tho silo (Frof. C. D. Smith, Bullotin 154, Michigan ox perimont atation). Aa to tho atago of ripeness at which tho crop should bo cut, tho rcBultB of tho exporimonts car ried on in 1890 and 1897 go to show that tho maximum yield of dry matter aud nutrients ia obtained by allowing tho crop to maturo until tho eara aro well glazed. Between tho time when tho kernals begiu toglazo and full ripc neBS thero ia a gaiu of ovor one-eighth in dry mattor, ono-sixth in atarch, augar and other carbohydratea and one fifth in fat. Tho study of the loases in tho silo goea to show that thero may bo danger of allowing the corn to stand too long, especially in hot and dry weather, making the silage too dry to aecuro the proper fcrmeutation. No regular and conaiatent variation in ex tont of loaa waa uoted which could bo related to tho ago of tho corn when cut. New England Hotneatead. Tho Cnro of Iron Tools. Caoutchouo oil iB said to have proved cllicient in provonting rust, and to havo been adopted by thc German army. It onlv requires to bo spread with a picce of flannel in a very thin layer ovor the metallic surface and allowed to dry up. Such a coating will afford security agniust all atmospberic influenccs, and will not show any cracks under the microscopo af ter a year's atanding. To remove it, tho article haa aimply to bo treated with caoutchouo oil again, and washed after twclve to twonty-four houra. A solution of india-rubber in benzine has been uacd for years as a coating for atecl, irou aud lead, has been fouud a aimplo meana of keepingthem from ox idizing.

All steel articles can bo perfectly pre aerved from ruat by putting a lump of freahly-burnt limo in the drawor or caao in which they are kept. If things are to bo rnoved (as a gun in ita caae, for inBtance) put the limo in a ruualin bag. This ia especially valuablo for Bpecimona of iron when fractured; for, in a moderately dry placo tho lime will not want any renewiug for many years, aa it ia capable of absorbing a largo quautityof moisture. Articlea in use should be placcd in a box ncarly fllled with thoroughly pulverized alaked lime. Beforo uaing them rub well with a woolen cloth.

I kuow of a man who ia alwaya right up with hia work, ao that when the Bea aon comea to euter upon any particular kind of buaiueaa he is ready. His work nover seems to crowd him; ho is, rather, the oue who does the crowding. It haa bcen aomethiug of a mystory to this roan'a uoighbora how he iB able to be just at tho front at all seaaona of tho year. I havo takeu somo paina to study hia mothods, and I think I have discovered his secret. I flnd that this man is alwaya to bo found on the apot. Ho haa little timo to spend around the village; you will not flnd him thero at any timo of tho year. Ho knows what ia going on, and how it iB going on. Then ho haB thinga ready for business when tho aeaBon openB. Ho is not obliged to apond two or three daya vibrating between hia farm and tho blackamith or carpentor 8hop. All ropairs aro mado when work is not crowding. Machiuery iB put away in condition to hitch outo whon needed noxt ycar. I aawthis man get ting out hia mower to-day. Inatead of being compelled to grind up a aot of knivca, he had a aot ground, ull ready to Blip in. The aamo way with tho reapor and othor tools. In this way valuablo timo is aaved. Again, ho buys hia sood in tho win tor, when it is lowor in prico than it is later in tho aeaaon, and haa it on hand roady for ubo. Hia secd corn is care fully braidod and hung away ovory fall, so tbat ho knons just whero ho ia to flnd it whon plantiug timo comes. The neighbora havo discovered that he haa thiB syatem, and flock to him ovory spring, knowing that ho will have aeed corn if any ono has. This man also haB a fair supply of carpentor tools, 80 that if any broakago comea ho may repair tho tool without being compelled to apend half a day at tho village. Ho koops n fow pulloya for tho horaefork on hand, and a good aupply of bolts, rlvets, naila, acrows, etc. Ono thing more I havo noticod, aud that is that thiB man has hia day's work dono early. Very little goini: about with a lauteru to do chores. lluaincBs ia ao shaped that aundown sees mattcrs cloaed up. This ploaao8 hia hauds, and they aro ready to work a littlo bardor early iu tho day for tho sako of a half hour'd roat iu tho evouing. I faucy I hear some ono say: "Oh, woll; thatniau ia forehanded, aud has rueans at his eomraand to do those things. Not all of us could do that way." Uut it ia followiug such a syB tem that haB mado him forobanded. It was not a chanco thing that ho bocamo ao. Perhaps thero may bo a poiutor in this article which it mfght pay somo to follow.

Many boys and girls brought up up on our iarms uo not receivo tno proper eucouragoment tney suouiu nave. J would liko to boo tho timo whon pa renta would give this matter moro at tention. Wo seo boys and, girls tvho are trained and worked upon tho farm until thoy can't think of anything else. Tho parents rule in a czar-liko manner and by and by thoso young folka aro of ago, and muat stem the tido of lifo for themsclves. Thoy havo never had any responBibility of buying, aelling or doing business for themselvcs. They havo not been allowed to go into so ciety any moro tban probably to attend diatrict school iu wintor and to go to church now and then on Sundays. When thoy flnd thernselves thrown up on their own responslbility they aro backward and with a very limited education they aro forced into tho rear ranks of social and political life. All they know ia to go through with tho ordinary routino of agricultural work, without knowing tho why or "what for" of their work. Conaequently many failurea aro madc. Farmers should have a Bcientiflc underatanding of their work as well as physicians or lawyera. In tho courao of events they have corn, hogs, etc, to scll, and again they feel the great responBibility of solf mauagement upon them. Father al ways attendcd to tbat, and tho boys were nover oncouraged in learuing tho rules and rcgulationa of the market, and now tho aon comcs to a point and he knows not which way to turn. It ia notmypurposo in this bricf article to aay what parents should do, and what not; I only purpose to call attention to tho fato of unencouroged boys, and plead with fathers aud mothers" to en courago tho boys and girla to be mon and womcn in tho truo aense of tho word. Let them havo a little property and learn to buy and aell and eapecially how to haudlo money aftor they get it. Encourage them to chooae good compauions and amuacmcnts. Teach them by your actionB that thoy are your partnors in all things and that aooncr or later you must give up the property to them. Such is tho case. Fiually, parents, study tho dispoaitions and hobbiea of your children and by tho help of God do the beat you can for them. Now England Homestead. Tho beautifully polished and ofton expensive dressing-tables aro now fre quently provided with a plato glaaa top, which flts ovor them perfectly. This protects not only tho flnish of the table itself, but as it cau bo lifted off, often the exquisitely embroidered drawn work rnats aud doilies aro placed be tween tho glass and the top. In this way thoy show through and are yet protocted. The plan, howover, is scarcely an artistic one. The glaBB top is not a bad idoa in itself, but tbo plast ering of doilies boneath seems unBuita blo. Tho same objection applies to tho elaborately ornamented dresaing-table utcnails. It is a common thing to havo theae tables set out so elaborately that a second set of ovcrything for real use is kept in one of tho drawers, such a courso boing actually necesBary bocauso of tho olaboration in the show set. Fower of theso show implements and a seloction mado of rich, plain ones, if cost is dcsired, that may havo tho care ful uao which bolongs to reflned ways, would seem to bo in bottor taste.

The weather haa beeu hot and muggy and most arrivals moro or leaa af fected. Averago gradea of freab weatern havo met with a very alow sale at 13 to Uo with some very badly heated lota ranglng down to 12c.

Kecelpta are moderato and ao large a proportion Bhow hot weather defects that the supply of strictly extra freab cream ery is llght, but demand ia also llghr and the advance in prlces slnco our laat reporf haa been cauaed more by the atrong advicea from the country and other markets than from any improvement here.

Tho market for llour ia yet very dull and buyers are only operating to meet their presalng needs, While pricea have declined largely aince the break in the Chicago wheat corner, there ia every proa pect of yet lower pricea when new wheat goods come in moro freely, and conaequent ly buyers are not iucllned to stock ahead at present values. Spring patents are yet quotable for old wheat goods at 4.50 to 4.80, the latter for fancy branda, but new wheat spring patents for October ahipment cau be purchased at S4.15 to 4.40. The poaition of wintor wheat flours ia unchang ed, patents from new wheat being quoted from inill at 4.00 to 4.25 while clear and Btraigkts rauge from $3.25 to 1.00. Low grades continue dull. Wool. There is vory little encourage ment ln buslnees aa It standa today. The demand Is of no greater atrength than it was laat week, and indeed the current sales are of leaaer volume. Trade as a wholo has been rather qulet and the buying element has been limited. There are potent rea sons, however, for the present week being a dull one, and far from taking diacourage ment from no greater extent to purchaaea, the trade are inclined to look upon the in creasing distribution of sample bales with aome aatiafaction with reference to futare aalea. Worated mills have largely kept aloof from the market this week as the goods Bltuation has not developed to tnake purchases necesaary. Lumber. A better feellng is noticeablo iu the lumber trade, which can be attribut ed to no other reaaou than that tbe proa pects of peaceareat hand. One who has followed tho lumber market, however, ,can readlly understand how such a prospect would have a most benelicial effect upon the general lumber trade, so depresaed has it been for inonths back. The war has a most depressinglniluenco upon real estate buildlng, and tho lumber market was there by directly allected. Though thu tone ot tbe market bo improred it has not as yet resulted lu much new businesB. It can hardly be said to bo due to the fact that this 1b Auguat, as dealers aay they have known the timo when Auguat was the beat montli ln tho year for business. It is most llkely, howover, that the trade will not commence to purchaso ln any couaiderable quantity until September. Llvo Stock Market. Swine. As last week. 4 to 4lc L. W. fnr western; 54,0 D.
