FARM, OAKDEfl AND HOUSEHOLD.
A Cure for n llnlkylIorc.
A Canada paper gives room for tho
following curious modo of dealing with
a balky horso: I would proparo mysolf
with a good strap I want no whip per
haps ho has got a good toslo ot that al
ready, and still ho is master. Hut somo
lino day when I was nt punco with my
solf and all around, I would hitch hi in
to tho buggy, turning his head to tho
Tillage. Ho goes halt way very woll in
deed; then ho begins to consider that
ho had gouo far enough in that direc
tion, and stops. 1 stop down; ho ex
pects mo to U8o tho whip; ho is mis
taken. As a criminal, I treat him on
tho silent system. I push him back a
llttlo out of tho way. I show him tho
strap, putting it up to his nose. I go to
tho ofl'-sitlo and bucklo it to his foro log,
closo up to his breast, throwing tho
other ond ovor his shoulder; I then ralso
his near foot and fix it with tho hoof al.
most touching tho belly. This done, I
say, ''Now, old chop, you Just stand
there" I don't smoke, so I tnko a
papor from my pockot, and finding a
placo whero I can sit down, and ho sec
me, I begin to read. This is something
ho did not bargain for, and tho novelty
of standing on thrco legs somewhat di
verts his m hul from tho causo that stop
ped him. I think that is tho chief point
gained, and tho most humane When
tho strap is taken olf I show it to him,
caress him a llttlo, and wn movo on
without irritation. The strap will now
becomo a part of tho harness for a
month or two, till at last tho sight of it
will actrs atMisman.
f.Irooju Corn.
Ilroom corn, as many of our readers
may know, was introduced to this coun
try by Dr. Franklin. Ho saw a seed on
a broom, planted it, and tho seeds from
this single plant wcro tho beginning of
broom corn as an American agricultural
product. Tho credit of tho broom
making Industry is duo to tho Shakers,
who, raising tho plants In their gardens,
manufactured tho brooms and sold them
for fifty cents, or more, apiece. 1m
mediately after tho war, so great was
tho profit from its cultivation, that it
was soon overdono, and tho many who
had rushed into tho business wero soon
discouraged and abandoned it. Now it
is cultivated in all parts of tho country.
Tho stalks grow very tall; tho seeds, if
loft to maturo and ground with corn or
oats, arc deemed excellent for fattening
cattle. But as tho straw is brighter mid
moro dcsirablo if cut while tho seeds aro
in tho milk or dough state, tho seeds
aro not gathered. Thoso should bo
planted on good soil, in drills three
feet apart, tho seeds ono foot apart in
tho drill.
Tho Potato.
It is supposed that tho potato Is
indigenous, and confined to no particu
lar part ot tho world. Mr. Darwin, for
instance, found it wild in tho Chonos
nrchipolago. W. J. Hooker says that
't is common at Valparaiso, whero it
grows abundantly on tho sandy hills
noar tho sea. In Peru and various
othor parts of South Amorioa it appears
to bo at homo. It is a woll known fact
that it was to tho colonists whom Sir
Walter Koloigh sent out, in Queen
Elizaboth's reign, that wo aro indebted
for our potatoes. Hcrrist, who wont out
with theso colonists, and who wroto an
account of his travels, makes what may,
perhaps, bo rogardod as tho oarlicst
mention of tho vegetable. Under tho
heading of 'roots,"l,.emontions whatho
calls tho 'oponawk." "Theso roots,"
ho says, "aro round, somo largo as wal
nuts, others much larger, thoy grow on
damp soils, many hanging together as
if fixed on ropes; thoy aro good food,
cither boiled or roastod." In early
times the potato was oonsidorod by
many to bo poisonous and unhealthy,
and was avoided as an artiolo of diet,
particularly by tho vory poor.
lVluit KHIh Fruit TreeN.
Somo time ago Josiah Hoopcs, in nn
address before tho Pennsylvania Fruit
Growers Association, mado tho lollow
lng oxcollout remarks on planting fruit
trees: "Deop planting Is ono orror to
plant a trco moro shallow than it former
ly stood is really tho right way, whilst
many plant a troo as thoy would a post
Hoots aro of two kinds tho young and
tender rootlets, composed ontiroly ot

moistui'jf, roots -of ovor ono year old,
which Iprvo only as suppirtors of tho
treo aird as conductors of its food
Ilonco tQp injury the? ensues when tho

in contact wit tho young roots is, ho
tells us, another groat error, Tho placo
put manuro is on tho surface, whero
tho elements disintegrate, dissolve and
carry it downward. Numerous form
of fungi are goncratod and rirodued
uy mo application or such manures di
rectly to tho roots, and thoy immediate
fly attack tho troo. It is vory woll to ou
xloh tho soil at transplanting tho treo,
but tho manuro, if to bo in contact with
or vory near tho roots, should bo thor
oughly decomposed."
I'Vewli Air in T'tiypbold Fever,
Dr. Hampton,' of Paris, lias latoly is
sued u pamphlet containing n history
of several romarkablo cures of typhoid
furor. Tito Dootor regards tho dlsoaso
as a sort of paralysis or asphyxia af all
tho vital lunotlons, occasioned by inhal
ing a poisonous Atmosphere, emanating
from a typhoid patlont or from somo
othor morbid sonrco. By tho Doctor's
experiments ho has practically demon
strated that groat advantago is to be de
rived from tho uso of open nir. Tho
cures whioh ho reports aro ascribed
matniy to mo admission ot out-door air
to tho patient's bod-room. Ho argues
that tho patient cannot suffer from tho
application of this remedy, from other
diseases, or from tho temperature of tho
atmosphere If tho patlont Is kopt warm
in bed by artificial means, tho frco
breathing of puro air will at all times
koop up tho natural animal heat. In
typhus fevor, complications of all kinds,
of tho lungs, or other organs, slmplv
rendor tho access of fresh air moro ur
gint nnd essential. It also enables tho
patient to tako stimulants moro easily
when necessary.
Tlio rVoso in the Dnlry.
This scorns like an insignificant mem
ber of tho working force about a well
conducted dairy, but it really is n pow
erful ally when properly appreciated
and Judiciously npplicd. Every ono
knows that bad odours aro tlio greatest
mischief-makers that can como in con
tact with milk, butler, or uliccso. Willi
its prcsonco good butter cannot bo
mado, while milk, and especially cream,
alsorb bad smoils rapidly ami fatally.
For tho purpos c of detecting tho presence
ot thoso utiwolcomo visitors a keen
smelling noso should bo. cultivated.
Thero is no doubt that this sonso, llko
all tho othora feeling, seeing, tasting,
etc. can bo greatly cultivated, nnd just
as surely lost by neglect. Tho person
who lives within tho roach of odours
from ijluc and soap factories soon be
comes totally indtfl'ereut to thorn. Just
so tho careless dairyman, who allows
old cream and grcaso to accumulato
about tho milk-room, uovor thinking
about tlio smell of things, falls in tho
end to notice them until ho finds his
butter totally rejected in tho markot,
Fumes from cooking onions, cabbngo,
and other smelling tood may pcrmoato
tho air to such an extent thal'tho women
of tho family loso all senso of bad odours,
nnd consequently lall to detect lesser
but equally fatal odours in tlio milk
room. To dotect a bad odour it is necessary
to dovoto tho wholo attention of your
mind to tho matter. Tako up each ar
ticle in tho milk-room, and smell ot it
to sco if undetected troublo is not brow
ing. Doing this onco a day will put tho
senses on tho nlort, and thus nvolu much
troublo and loss when tho butler is to
bo marketed.

At the churn comes in our most radi
cal need of reform. How to free our
butter from tho buttermilk nnd in doing
so keep from working tlio bultor into a
gralnloss, waxy mass? For myself, 1 am
n strict ndvocato of tho brino system of
gathering and working tlio butler. As
soon as tho cream begins to break add
a gallon ot strong brino, tho coldei it is
tho better, slowly won; tho dasher until
tho butter has assumed the appearance
of b rd-shot, then draw off tho buttor
milk; cold water should now bo turned
into butler and tho (lusher occnsiorally
worked, but notcnougli to gather the
butter. It is better to chango tho wa
ter once, making tho sccontl a weaker
brino. Draw tills oft' and tako tho but
ter worker, roll it very gontly and only
enough to forco tho remaining water
out. Tho mass will will then bo found
to bo of uniform color, frco from specks
or streaks, and tho traces of buttermilk
will bo wanted. Then salt three-fourths
of an ounce to tho pound, using lino
salt invariably, as tho sharp crystals cut
tho grobules ot butter and break down
tho grain. It is quite n mistaken notion
that salt preserves tho buttor. There
is no chemical union of salt and butter.
Salt merely occupies tho spaeo between
tho grains, and If moisture or butter
milk, but never tlio bultor, nnd at a
certain stage salt or no salt, tho butter
milk undergoes a chango and tho but
tor (?) becomes rancid. Tho buttor is
now set away in tho bowl for twontv-
four hours, tho temperature being kept
as tow as 07 degrees, when it Is again
placed in the worker and gontly rolled
again, a trillo moro salt added, and
without over coming at any stage in
contact with tho hands put' into tho
packing.

Oatmeal, says nn Irish paper, is a
loou oi great strength nnd nutrition,
having claims to bo hotter known and
moro widely used thnn it is nt present.
Oatmeal requires much cooking to
effectually burst its starch-colls, but
when it is well cooked it will thicken
liquid much moro than equal its weight
in wheatcn Hour. Tho oats of this
country aro superior to thoso grown on
tho Continent and tho southern part of
Englaud, tmt certainly inferior to thu
Scotch, whero considernblo pains nro

less to point out tliat tlio Scotch are an
