Wood ashes and plaster make an ex cellent fertilizer for all Jsintls of grafs crops, and should be freely used. Raspberries throw up a great manj suckere, and ibe?e should be thinned out. leaving not over four four cane to the bill, so as to afford plenty of room. Wc need to study the habits of insects more. Nearly all the luiccU which in jure the farmer and fruit .'grower have their parasites, which would keep the enemy in check if properly encuui ag ed. The practice of pegging down cyer blooming roses so that they will cover complete!- the smface of the bed is known to produce very pleasant re sults. It is said 'that peggiug dotvn duhilas proves quite satisfactory. In breeding stock on the farm do not be tempted to scil the best, but di-pose of the in'erior animals first. By care lully selecting and retaining the best every tear, the yalne of the stock will be increased and larger" profits se cured. The last month or do of a pig's life has a great influence upon the flesh of the animal. You can put on the frame hII through the year, but the flavor is latgely determined by the feeding dur my; the latter period of fattening. Tho same is true of all animals. .Mustard plants used to be the terror and disgust of the California vliat grower. Now they arc a source of pro fit. Ily ingenious mechanical harvest ing both crops are gathered separately, and tho mustard is worth more than the wheat on the same laud. An Indian farmer finds that it is an advantage to mix bluegrass seed and other light grass seed wsth moist saw dust before sowing. He e.xys the grass seed sdhercs to tt.c sawdust, and ena bles the sower to spread it evenly. He uses about three bushels of -sawdust to one of gra.-s seed The chief advantage of incubators con-ists in the eircuiu-tnnce that eegs may be hatched in thuiu before fowls show a deposition to sit on eggs. The egijs of ducks can,be hat chid in incu bators to the most advantage, as early ducks of improved varieties sell at high prices in large towns. If Farmers who have never tried t will cut their corn fodder and straw finely for their cattle, they will be sur prised to notice how much belter the (lock will cat them, and how much fur thei the same amount of fodder will go than when IVd wholy. A little sjirink ling of meal docs not injure it in the least. Many Diseases of swine arc contagi on, and when an animal is observed t he sick it should be lemoved from the pen and placed by itself. It would be just as wII to keep a watchful eye on the balance. Clean out the pern an-l troughs, scrape out all decaying muter from under and mound them and use some disinfectant. A good hint for growing cucumbers, squashes of rinular plants, is to put sawdust or rotten wood about them. TIioko who have iioer tried cucumbers on strong, bushy stages like pea sticks will be surprised to note how they en joy it. Tomatoes do better trained to stout stakes than in any other way. The raspberry, gooseberry and currant, es pecially the latter, thrive with applica tions of rotten wood. In the rcpoits ol several dairy farms of Denmark, in the v.cinity of Copen hagen, we note that the yield of each cow is regularly weighed, and the ex cellent average ol 900 gallons per cow is quite general. When a cow falls be low 750 gallons per annum she is led off at once for the butcher A liberal system of feeding prevails and the amouut of mi;k required for a pound of bu.ter varies from twenty-four to twenty-seven pounds, or about 250 to 300 pounds ol butter per cow. I'ouds are no', good for young ducks Wet grass, dampness and old sleeping places will kill juung ducks a quickly as such influences will destroy young chicks. Feed the ducks on bulky lood. Cooked tuin ps and potatoes thickened with oat meal make a cheap and good food for them. Give them plenty of water to drink, but not to bathe in un til thu dowu is off and the feathers cover the body. Thun you may let them enjoy theuu-elves in the walvr as uracil us tliey desiro. Dwarf peats should bo planted ort a spot that has a moist Mibsoil, either na lural or made so by sub?oiling or mix. ing some inatuiial with thu soil that will give out moisture in dry weather. Trees already planted on a dry, gravel ly subsoil should have a circle dug out two (eel deep and two or three feet from the tree. This should be filled up wiih well-cnrichened soil. If the dwarf pear docs not grow freely it is a sigu that something is wrong It t hould be sev erely pruned, so as to aid in producing a vigorous growth.

Whatever farming may have been in the past, the time has come when the highest intelligence is demanded as necessary qualification on the part of the agriculturist. That is to say, pace must be kept with the spirit of the times that has developed fully as much in agricultural machinery as in other dcpartuients'of industry New and im proved seeds and plants must also be looked after, clj the farmer will be left in the lurch.

By the request ot several ot my friends in Hull, I will try to give you n few points I have seen tn mv ioorncv through the northern part pt Kansas. We started at White Cloud, Doni phan county, taking a We-tern course through Brown, Nemaha Marshal and Washington. Through there counties we found it rather rough and considera alle alkali land, most all ol the wells beinr hard water. TV heat, what was not froze out, looked well, but about one-half seemed to be froze out. Wax es are from S!5 to 320 tier month on the farm. Seneca, situated near the Nemaha river is as beautifully situated as any town we have yet seen in the West She ha a rich country sur rounding Iut and is grow ing every day. Washington county we found to be very rough, and in quite a good many place the soil is shallow, being under laid by a substance called hard-pan. From Washington we teok a south western course. Hi n m "h Concordia, Cloud county, Mitchell, Itonks.O-borne, Graham. Concordia, iluatod near the Republican is quitv a flourishing city, but bears a hard name. The writer would warn travelers in going thruugh there to bu very carc'ul. The land cas-t of Concordia seems to be of a sandy nature. Due west of Concordia seems lo be a itch soil ; the farmers are all well tixed in the way of groves and res idences. Their fields seem to be well cultivated and their wheat crops look butter than tart her cast. The next place woi thy of notice is the wetern part of Mitchell and all of Osborne counties, and in that too in thu way of wheat counties. The soil i very rich and lays level hardly any lulls te.-p enough to require a lock to wagons, and yet plenty rolling onough to be well dreaded. Here we strike the first green wheat fields to gladden the eye, only ten per cent, being frozen out. CawkerCity, one of the best lit tle cities in I lie West, situated in wes tern Mitchell' county, is uudcrgoing a big boom, ail of the old frame buildings are being rcmovedand rock, ones that (airly glisten, are filling their pl.tce with many additional new oaes. Nearly all of the dwellings in this section ot country are built, of stone. Downs, situated near tho Solomon river, just seven miles from Cawker, in the edge ot Osliorne county, and only nine years old, has a population equal to Mound City and Oregon ; buildings are all line. To give thu people of Holt some idea of the growth of this cuuntry, will give the prices of land as told us by some vciy responsible mn. This country was hometeadud about fifteen years ago, and now land sell for from $2,000 to 12,000 per 160, acd there are more !il2,000 fai nis than 8i,000 la 1872 my father, W. It. Hop prr, homesteaded a piece of land on the Solomon river, just seven and a half miles west of Cawker City, now one half mile from Downs. In 1873 be sold the same for $100 and moved to Holt county. Today the owner of that same piece of land refuses $7,000, I had the pleasure ol quenching tut thirst from the well of my childhood. It is aid lo be the best water in that section ot the country. The next place we took particular notice of was the country surrouudiag I'lainvHlu in the Southern part of Hooks county. For twenty-five miles wc traveled on a high, almost level prairie with the village in the center. The soil, with the exc-ptiou of a lew sand streaks, is rarely equalled in this coun try. It was homesteadcil seven and eight j ears ago and claims fell from $I,rC0 lo $.1,000 per quarter. Theie is no railro id in the village, but surveying is in progrens and they expect one soon. The yilLtge is growing very rapidly. Small grain in that section looks fin and the farmers were busily plowing for corn, although they do nut believe in very extensive corn crops. L was about to neglert to say' that the finest peach orchards that I have ever seen were just cast of the village. And now we stride the flourishing town ot Wakeeney, the county seat of Trego county, with a population of 900, laved out in '73, and Central Land Office for Western and Southern Kan sas. It is constantly filled with emi grants; she now has twenty houses un der erection, five hotels, seven djj goods and grocery, three drug and three hardware stores, ton, livery sta bles nnd three banks doing business and has the hearty support of the Te go paper conducted by a young Mis sourian front Tarkio, Atchison coiiuly. by the name of J. W. Wherry. The city stands ou a high prairie, nine miles west of the S.ileni river. The; get water in from 80 to 120 feet. The soil i rich and, very productive The town is right on the line of the U. P. K K. They have a very fine aud eleg..ut de pot built of stone. I do not want the pcop'e of Holt county to think that the whole of Kan sas is like that I have tried to describe lo them, but 1 wish to say that the good land is iti streaks, separated by land that is very poor. Somrtiuies :he streaks ol good land will extend twen ty-five ot thirty miles,. and ag:tin it wi.l be very uarrow, only four or five mile. Indeed, we have been traveling over tbo very Guest of soil, from two lo three feet deep, and all at onco strike tier fectlv while sand that would not I:tt for more than filtern or twenty ro.N ! Canon Farrar'.s New Hook. A few weeks ago, when Canon Fafar was in this country, tens of thousands, -of people paid as much as 6ne dollar each lo hear it single lecture delivered bv him. and were well pleased with "what they got for their money. Several of the most important of those lectures aud addresses with other papers are now published by John IS. A'dcn, of New York, nnd can now be had it. a very handsome cloth-bound volume, for the price of 40 ccnls. Some of the lectures are also published esparately In his Elzevir Library, in which form the lecture ou Dante sells for 3 cents; on Temperance, 2 cenls; on Ideals of Nations, 2 cents; Thoughts on America 3 cents. The millions of intelligent people who admire C mon Farrar and who were not able to bear him lecture, will be delighted to find his brilliant, scholarly and eloquent thoughts placed in this bandsomo form within their teach. The publisher's illustrated cat alogue, 133 pages, is sent to any ad dress on receipt of 4 cent; or condensed catalogue tree. John B. Aldcn, 1'ub lishvr, 333 Pearl St , New York.

When Russia and England reached their understanding after the difficulty of 1881 which threatened to lead to war over the Afghan boundary, the b:isis agreed upon wa the reference of all matters concerning the Afghan frontier to an international commission. That commission has, however, disagreed, and the points in dispute have been re ferred to the St. Petersburg und Lon don officers for instructions. Some surprise was at that time expressed that KuiM.-i should be willing to refer the questions iti dispute, but it is not impossible that the pcscnt disagree ment was all tho lime in her mind. The agreement made in 1881 was so arrang. ed as tc give Russia a much gi eater ad vantage than seemed to be tho case. The boundary was to bj laid off in sec tions, and the Afghan tribes ou cither sidu we.e to have some voice in the ar rangement. Italian agents have as the work has progressed, been active among the Iribe3 iu the north side of thu boundary, have captured the na tives by their promises, have organized Russian colonics all along the line. The English have done nothing of the kind, anil the result is that the Afghans to the south are thoroughly disaff.cled. Now t'lat the negotiations have ceased the English arc beginning to realize the advantage that litis been gained over tbem. This, however, is ri'it all. Rus sian engineers and a large force of Uussian soldiers have been busy eou- stucting the railroad to Mery. They have worked at night by electric lights, and will havo completed the road which connects Mery with the west within two mouths. Tho importance ot this road to Russia's evident designs upon India cannot be over-estimated. In short the summer outlook in the East is not an especially cheerful one for England.
