We cannot urge too frequently upon farmers the paramout importance of this greatest and best of hay crops, which, all things considered, has no rival, s a soiling crop, it is vastly. superior tq any other that has yet been tested, For improving worn and wasted lands, giving rest to that which has been wearied and restoring life and vitality to that from which fertility has been exhausted, next to the pea it has no equal in all the countless experi ments made by practical and scientific research, and with al of its many ex cellencies and rare merits, there is no crop to . universally neglected. A wheat, rye or oat field should never be sown without seeding to clover. If either should produce only a partial crop, the clover, if it "catches," will make good all losses, and in any event the benefit t? the land derived from the clover wjll amply repay for tho ex? tra cost and labor. In addition to seeding wheat, rye, and oat crops to clover, we would also urge that clover be liberally mixed with all other grass crops for the meadow. It goes well with any and a) of them, and it is a benefit in every instanoe. We consider spring seeding the better and safer, as when sown in the fall it may not get sufficiently rooted to stand the freezes of winter. Our experience, if it is desired to seed down to a-wheat field, is to wajt ijntil the ground is set tled in the spring and the hard frosts have passed, then sow six to eight quarts of clover seed and four quarts of timothy well mixed, followed by harrowing, and then roll the ground. When the clover plaut begins to leaf, sow wo hundred pounds of plaster to the acre, With oats, (he same quantity of seed sliQuld be used; but after the oats are dragged in, injmeadiatley put on the roller, which is beneficial to both oats and clover.

A square rod with a deep, rich- soil, thoroughly cared for, will give bettor returns than half rui acre full of weeds, and scant of half-grown, uneatable veg etables. . Pet apart no more ground than can be trenched or subsoiled, thoroughly underdrained, well and deeply manured,, and kept clean and mellow, the season through. Many gardens are too hard, and have a heavy soil. TJiis may be improved and cor rected by manure and deep tillage. There is still Rtiother remedy, where the material is at hand, . and that is sand. Draw on from one to four in ches, and spread over the surface. Try it on a limited scale, and observe its ef fect. Do not try to go over much ground at once, but work thoroughly. The sand will become gradually inter mixed by cultivation, and it will stay there a century. It does not waste away like manure; it can neither dis solve nor evaporate.

Dr. Sturtevant has made some in foresting experiment with the potato at the New York Experiment Station which shows that deep cut and single eyes produced the most and best mar ketable potatoes, while single eyes and Hhnlloff cut were inferior. From adis section of the potato the Dr. finds it put together something like the cone of a pine tree, the bus or eyes of the potato being connected by a sort of umhilica cord with the centre of the potato, at which point is the core or central stem These internal stems or veins may be A- French cook gives the following general rules for cooking all kinds of vegetables: Green vegetablesiihould be thoroughly washed in cold water, and then dropped into water which has been salted and is beginning to boil. There should be a tablespoouful of salt for each two quarU of water. If the wa ter boils long before the vegetables .are put in, it has lost all its gases, and the mineral ingredients are deposited on the bottom and sides of the kettle, so that the water is flat and tasteless, and the vegtables will not look well or have a fine flavor. The time for boiling green vegetables deSends much upou the age and time they ljaye been gathered. Below is a very good time-table for cook ing vegetables: Beet greens, one lipur. Onion's, one to two "hours. ' Carrots, one to two hours. Spinach, one to two hours. Tomatoes, fresh, one hour. Parsnips, one to two hours. Cauliflower, one to two hours. Dandelion, two to three hours. Potatoes, boiled, thirty minutes. Tomatoes, canned, thirty minutes. Potatoes, baked, forty five minutes. Shelled beans, boiled, sixfy minutes. Greeu corn, thirty to sixty minutes. Sweet potatoes ,boied, fifty minutes. Squash, boiled, twenty-five minutes. Sweet potatoes, baked, sixty ruiuutes. Asparagus, fifteen to thirty minutes. String beans boiled one to two eours. Turnips, yellow one and a half-hours. Cuiibage forty five miuutes to two hours. Green peas boiled, twenty to forty minutes. Turnips, white, forty-five to sixty minutes. Facts Worth Knowing. IIuH'i Journal of Ileuhb. That salt fish are quickest and beBt freshened by soaking in sour milk.

The appearence will be something like the frost work ot our window panes on winter mornings After the starch grains are bursted by cooking, these veins probably disappear or are less visible. The new theory advanced by Dr. Siurtevunt is, that the potato should he cut so as to keep the connection be tween the eyes and the centre of the tuber. The expei iments for the past season showd that au eve cut shallow in every case, gave a smaller yield than w hen it was cut long or deep, so as to reach llie centre of the potato.

There is no other one thing unlets it pitsibly be sulphur that will do so much to preserve ihe health and growth of hens, hogs aud horses in fact, most farm animals as charcoal placed in their mangers or pens, or any place where ihe animals can have free access to it; and it is attended with small cost. Horses have been kuown to be cured of the "heaves" by having lumps of charcoal in their mangers, constantly for a few weeks; and when it is pulver ized and placed in their feed, they will be less ure to have any distemper to which they are liable, and much fighter than if they Jiave no charcnal. . Pulverized charcoal sprinkled in the hen-house during winter and spring will secure the poultry against much disease, and if thrown in the trough or pen will have the .same good effects with the hogs. Similar healthful results to hens and swine nre secured by spriuklinga little sulphur in their pens and houses, once a week or fjrtnight. a paper or cloth sprinkled with salt.
