Som.- Inquiries Suggested by tho Close of
the Ytar. ,
(Southern Cultivator. )
Up to yio present month tho farmer
han been looking forward. Tho con
summation ot'lus phuis, tho final out
come ?f his labor and toil, in tho simpo
of colton hales and othor orops, have
been tlio objective points before him.
Now,, thosooeas?'to bc matters ofcx
ncctfon and become mattera ol' fact.
Wo hope his exj)battitlons have not
bceii too large and his crops too small ;
we truijt^tju?t'hfiviiiii s<nwn wisely, he
ha? reajiffd IMintifully. Hut, however,
well ho has done, no might have done
butter; fanning has not reached per
fection and a ret ro meet may he very
useful. Let us go hack together and
review (no year's work, booking at
it now in the light ol' results, was your
year's work well planned? lu' (ho
Hist place wai the work undertaken
proportionate to your means; did you
attempt to do more than you could
well manngu; did you attempt to do
mole than von could well manage;
did you have enough horse-power" to
work to best ad yan tugo j did von tnako
all thosubstitutiou possible of machines
and horse-power in place ol' more
costly human power; did you spread
out the manure you liad over too
many acres; did you buy fertilizers
judiciously and economically; did you
cultivate your land so as "to save il
from waining, and is it in better condi
tion how than it was a year ago; how
is Hie balance-sheet between expense
and receipts?
Endeavor to answer these questions
in H calm, candid spirit, laying aside
all conceit and pride of opinion. Do
not attribute to seasons what might
have been prevented by foresight ami
energy on your part. " lt is an old
trick of farmers to explain all failures
by laying them at the door of had
seasons. Difficulties occur in every
occupation ; i he successful man is lie
who anticipates, provides for and over
comes them.
Hut to our quostions. Was your
work well planned: did you "have
fixed plans or did you just work along
as woathor and circumstances suggest
ed? To illustrate: There arc certain
kinds of work which can be done on
wet days and when tho ground is too
wet to plow-going to mill, hauling
manure, gathering litter, hauling wood
making composts, Otc. Did you
always look ahead and arrange, so
that any of these, which of necessity
ntUSl be done, wore done and out of
tho way when tho time for plowing
came? When the period for planting
a crop drew nigh and preparation tor
it could not bc deterred, did it. lind
you willi composts in sacks or barrels
already hauled out and distributed
conveniently about tho fiolds to which
they were applied? or were your teams
stopped then to do hauling when every
animal should have hoon hitched to a
plow? Had you studied out carefully
the best appliances and most expe
dios method ol' putting out. composts,
and was everything ready to do the
work rapidly and well? If your land
was rolling and thc rows had to he run
ona level, as they always should be,
had you established your linos of lev?la
or guides, or had the plowueu some
times lo wait tor you to run ono, and
if the hurry was very great, were thc
rows run by guess and therefore im
perfectly; was the quantity ot compost
to he applied to an acre decided on,
and were there ony arrangements to
guage il? A most excel ?cut plan is to
make a memorandum in advance of
all work ti? bo-doiu,*, adding thereto
anything irria* may bo suggested hy

place yourself at the mercy of mer
chants and dealers and obligate your
self to pay fifty to one hundred per
conti mor? for such things than they
could bo had for cash? Do you think
you CHU mako such ?argo percentages
on money med in farming? It is
doubtful I? thoro hoe boon au average
of eight lier cent, mad? by farmers
during tho last ten years. Scarcely
any legitimate business pays moro than

it would have been better to have
Undertaken less. What profit and
pleasure is thoro in cultivating thirty
or forty or Illly more additional acres,
tho whole yield of which, and more
too, must go to Mr. Merchant? As
has boen tersely and aptly sahl, yon
simply make yourself the merchant's
overseer over" free Negroes, willi a
guarantee that they shall make him so
many bales ol' cotton. Had you not

let your lund test and recuperate? If
inonov can ho hoi rowed at soven per

mi-'lit be justified In borrowing; but
how is it when money is borrowed at
fifty per cent., with a vory cortolu

Ho affirms that low breeds ot fowls
arc profitable iu placea remoto (rom

that the Houdans aro valuable, in tho

tho incubator is thorn used for hatch

however, they soon loso their charac

that they aro very large, (hut tiley pro

arc good senors and careful mothers.
But lui remarks that when eggs aro
sold by the do/.en. instead of by weight,
there is no inducement for supplying
tho market with those of very largo
size. Ho thinks that incubators aro
much choaner tuan hens for hatching
eggs, and bullo VOS Ihul tho tim? will
soon como when they will bo iu gen

aro kept. Tho flesh of all tho largo
breeds of fowls is course and lacking

iu tho estimation of this writor, rank
iar above tho Brahmas and Cochins.
Spanish hens aro praised for produc

poor eating, and thai they aro not

the method to be described. It is this:
For three days be 'lets tho calf suck
tue cow. Thon he takes it entirely
away from the cow, and feeds upon
hay toa and milk, beginning with
ono-quarter of toa and tbroe-quartors
of milk, footling it blood warm. Grad
ually ho diminishes the milk, until the
food is exclusively hay tea. He says
that hay toa-the hay must be the best
- is much better than grass, and that
tho calf likes it much better. Mill
stuffs may be added to the tea as the
ealf seems to need it, but in small
quantitios. A littlo first-rate hay is
placed whero the calf can get at lt.
and ho will soon learn to nibble at it
