Many farmers suppose that because they cannot buy a herd or a flock that there fore they must be content with growing scrub stock. On this subject the Live Slock Journal says : "It doesn't require a section of land, rr a hir hank account., to make a btgin ,'miT Ymi neeil not so to EiiL'ltiml, nor even to a sister State, to get the 'blooil' which is sure to toll.' Good, reliable KrnnrWa nf short-horns.

From this nnint ot view the 'can't afford it' plea Hiaamwnrrt. fnr. if neftessarv. a pool of five dollars each can be formed. In just that omc thn hieerlers of Madison, Clin ton and other counties in Onio, in early Auxn. funned their associations for im porting short-horns from England, and thn (Ht.ftt results iu!coomlished point the way for the common farmers of to day. Corn Meal and Bkan. Mr. J. W Sanborn, superintendent of the college farm, Hanover, N. H., reports experi ments in feeding cows, giving full details of weights of each kind of feed, of milk hii,.r vield. and the weights of the nimiiU at, the betinnine and end of od. In summing up he savs MI will make more milk than bran, I no longer hesitate to say. The change in the butter product is remarkable; in changing from meal to bran there was a loss of 17.7 per cent in the butter pro ducing capacity of milk; in changing from bran to meal there was a gain in the b'ltter producing capacity of milk of 21 8 per cent. There is a substantial agreement iu the two changes, for it is a matter of experimental observation that a good cow will make a gteater change in change of food than a poor cow." Mr. Sanborn found the tests with the cream gunge under change of food, at variance with the actual product of but ter. "The results in weighing the cows form an exception to previous experi ments, brnn ana middlings kieo'ng weight better thnn raeul in this experi ment.

Gas-Tah vs Poulthy Lice. A short time ago my poultry house was swarm ing with lice; it could not be entered without having the clothing gray with insects wherever one touched the roosts, If a hen brushed my hand with her wing dozens of liee could be teen running over it. Indeed so desperate did affairs become ili.it even looking at the poultry house produced a sensation of crawling thines. Swabbing the rnosM and sprink ling the nests with kerosene had no per ceptible effect. Fumigating with gas-tar and sulphur met with no better success. The youngest broods of chickens grew weak, moped around for a time, and finnally died. Some of the hens al-o gave evident signs of weakness, nnd their combs turned a sickly color. At this stage of ult'airs, I applied for a remedy to a friend noted iu poultry-raining as well as in other things (Prof. J. B. Tur ner). 1 learned that twenty years before he had painted the inside of his poultry house with gas-tar, and. although keep ing constantly a large number of fowls, had not been troubled with lice since. I got a lew quart of gas-tar from the gas woiks, at the rate of ten cents per gallon. This tar is about the consistency of new paint, and was readily applied to the inside walls of my ten house with an old whisk broom as high up as the roosts extended; the inside of the nests and roosts were also thoroughly coated with the tar. This was done on the morn ing of a clear day, arid by night the house was dry enough for tho chickens to roost in it. Before the tar was ap plied the old nesting was removed, and the floor, whieh is of dirt, was well scraped and sprinkled with wood ashes. The chickens began to improve fioni that time forth, and in le-s than two weeks not an insect pest was to be found about the house or cuickens. A'. '. Tribune. Tiif Nutmt.'o.. ok Hoots For a long time the absorbing power was sup posed to be localized in a special organ at the end of the root. But this has been discovered, as the vegetable cone situated there Is covered with a skin that possess es little or no power of absorption. Tbe maximum of absorption takes place di rectly above this cone, in a part of the root covered with peculiar fibres gradu ally diminishing and disappear, and higher still the skin itplf is exfoliated, and is replaced by a new tegument that grows less and less permeable with age. Both tbe anatomy of the plant and ex periment prove that the absorbing pow er diminhes from the point to the base of the root. Tbe subterraneous nutri tive fluid of the soil is always very peor in plant bniiding substances, of which it only contains from a few thousandths to one-hundredth of its own weight. The plant soon exhausts the unall amount of soluble matter tontaited in aiable land, but this matter daily renewed by the chemical action of sunlight, and the va rioos natural agents cause a sort of di gestion to take place in tbe soil, convert ing insoluble into soluble bodies. Tbe fertility of the soil is not shown by the amount of nutritive matter that it can dissolve at a given moment in water, but by tbe amount of matter in contains that with time will become soluble. We should therefore remember in applying liquid fer ilizcra tbat tbey should be laigely diluted if we would imitate the natural conditions of vegetation. All roots posseas an elective power of ab sorption, as tbey will only absorb those pabstances thai are fnitable to nourish then), and reject all others. Eicb plant so to speak, foPows a diet appropriate to its own organisation and character, and generally wli n the so. I doe Dot contain tbe necessary elements, tbe plant, instead of adapting its chemical eoodi'.ioii to that of til aoil, will suffer and prematurely die. Scientific Amtrv- Tut cobs of Indian corn contain a large amount of potash. Its ashes con tain twioe the amount of that mineral than tbe asbos of the willow, whieh con tains more than any other wood. Potash is ono of the minerals for which the farmer pays in one shape or another, large sums of money; and this frequent ly when there can do seen lying biuuuu bis premises uueoonomizud quantitius of this valuable material.

Thoy have been raised in tho Royal JMn- ish Btuttery in rreaerinpuuiS, -penhagen. for nearly 200 years ; white hoofs, white mane, white tail, and white eyelashes, rose colored eyelids, and nos trils, not a single colored hair or spot on their bodies. . King Christiana IV., of Denmark, re ceived from the Dey of Algeria, as a token of high regard, a white stall on aud a white mare, descended from tho Prophet's famous mare. These white horses are used by the king pnly at state ceremonies, and are national pi operty . TnwnE are some cows from whose milk it is exceedingly difficult to obtain all the butter, and if, when the cream of a number of cows is put together, the aggregate yield is not what it might be if each cow's milk were churned sep arately, still the extra labor which the littler process would involve would scaroely pay for the possible and mod erate increaso in remits. But should the farmer pay proper attention to this part of the question, he would soon learn to so grade his herd that the milk from bis different cows would be so near alike that there would be little loss iu butter from their oream being churned altogether; this can only be obtained by occasionally churning each cow's milk separately. Tukke is an opinion quite prevalent among farmers that special fertilizers act as a stimulant upon the soil, bring out its latent energies and leave it tifter a while poorer than before. No opinion could be more erroneous than to suppose tlmt therA is such thioff as stirautritintj thn anil. Stimulants owe their effects i iheir notion uoon the nervous system bringing out the latent or reseived power of the body, sometimes exhausting it to tbat extent as to destroy life; nut the soil has no nervous system ann plants reoeive no food through stimulation, A certain amount of heat and moisture does sometimes seem to stimulate growth it would be better to say accelerate it. Heat and moisture hasten the prepara tion of plant food; they accelerate toe decomposition of the mineral t in tho soil ami quicken the flow of the sap, anil heat causes the water of the sap to ihrouwh tbe leaves. the more rapidly the plant grows the faster it draws the elements of fertility from the soil and thus, by making a rapid growth, it hastens the exhaustion of the toil.

When tho use of silos in whioh to store green fodder for cattle feeding in winter was taken jp, we were getting a little short of questions for discussion in the agricultural line. But this one springing up rather sud denly gives writers something of real importance to talk aboti'; and the result we suppose will be as has most others an agreement to disagree. As far as we havo seen we should say that the sides are strongest in behalf of the new dis covery. As for ourselves, we Bhall wait and see before speaking out deoitl edtv one way or thu older. Ther is auomiw, KHniHiMnK ooci in me minfg, but we q ie.-tion the claim for it that it is all that its advocates say it is. Pur hnu9 there is a good deal to And out about it yet. At any rate it will not be an exDensive experiment to try, as it can be done on a small Fcale oy any farmer, and he can tudge then lor mui self if it shall be worth trying on n more extensive scale. Assuredly, if Dr. Bailey's claims can be sustained fully, be will prove himself to oe a oeneiacio to the farmer to a degree fur beyond anyone else for many a year. German fawn Tdcgrnph. Eniiichino O-.cnAHDi Any farmer who has been accustomed to raising apples and has been uniformly success ful, will doubtless say that if he expects to get good crops he treats the orchard as he does for any other crop ho manures it, and he finds that a manure that will do for most other crops will do for the crop of apples. I. is the neglect to manuro orchards at all that causes them to bear so poorly and tbe trees to look in bad condition. There is noth ing better than wood ashes for orchards, if we had the ashes; but nearly ev. ry body burns coal except in corti in out- of-the-way seotions, and we must therefore resort to somettiingeiee. next to wood ashes there is no other fertilizer better than barn yard manure A liberal application of this, if only once in three years, with careful pruning and scraping of the trees, and ferreting out tho borers and all other insects which lay concealed under the bark will soon make a change in the productiveness of the orchard. October and November are the best months to npply the manure and to give the trunks uf the tiees a gooft scraping off of all old bark. If tbe trunks were washed with whale-oil soap, say one pound to an ordinary bucket of water, there would not lie manv insects letl alive alter the operation. Getmantown Telegraph We clip from an exchange the follow ing antidote lor diphtheria, vi iinoui doubt sulphur has preventative and cura tive properties, but too much reliance should not be placed upon such remedies. Diphtheria doubtless requires heroic treatment at the outset. As the season when apprehensions of diphtheria will be felt is ap. reaching, the following, wnicn nas nam exiensiva cir culation, will be of interest: A lew years ago, when diphtheria was raging in England, a gentleman acoompauieu the celebrated Dr. Field on his rounds to witness the o called "wonderful cures" which be performed. All he took with him was powder ol sulphur and a quill, and with these he cured every patient without exception. He put a teapoon ful of flour of brimstone into a wine glass of water, and stirred it with his finger instead of a spoon, as tbe sulphur does not readily amalgamate with water. When tbe sulphur was well mixed ho gave it as a gargle, and in ten minutes the patient was out of danger. Brim stone kills every species of fungus in man, beast and plant in a few minutes. Instead of spitting out tho gargle, he recommended the swallowing of it. In extreme cases, in which he bad been called just in tbe nick of time, when the fungus was too nearly closing to allow the gargling, he blew the suiphur through a quill into the throat, and after the funeua bad shrunk to allow of it. then the gargling. He never lost a patient from diphtheria. If a patient cannot gargle, take a live coal, put it on a shovel and sprinkle a fpxmful or two of flour brimstone at a time upon it, let the sufferer inhale it, holding the bead over it. and tbe fungus will die. If plentifully used, the whole room may be filled almost to suffocation; tbe patient can walk about in it, inhaliog the fumes, with doors and windows rbut. This mod of fumigating a room with sulphur has often enred most volent attacks of colds in the bead, chest, eto , at any time, and is recommended in eases of ooosumptloe aod asthma.

It la recorded of Jesus that shortly be fore bis crucifixion "he entered into the temple, and drove oit tbe money changers with a whip of small cords." If tbe same process wore now to be re peated, and the money element, together with all tbe "vested interests" in eccle siastical edifices and societnry super structures, were extirpated, the path of the trutbseeker would be oleared from I man; an obs'ructive barrier. Make Friends. Life is very critical Any word may be our last. Any fare well, even amid elee and merriment, may be forever. If this truth were but burnt into our oonsoiousness, and if ruled as a deep conviction and real power in our lives, would it not give a new mean ing to onr human relationships P Would it not mske as far more tender than we sometimes are f Would it not often times put a rein upnn our rah and im petuous speech t Would we carry in our hearts the miserable suspicions and jealousies that now so often embitter tho fountains of our lives P Would we be so impatient nf tbe faults of others P Would we allow trivial misunderstand ings to build up a wall between us and thoe who ought to stand very close to us P Would we keep alive petty quar rela year after year, which a m-tnly word any day would compose P Would we psxs old friends or neighbors on tbe street without recognition, becauso of some real or fancied slight, gome wound ing of pride, or some ancient grudge P Or would we be so charry of the kind words, our commendations, our sympa thy, our comfort, when weary hearts all about us are breaking for just such ex pressions of interest or appreciation a we have in our powers to give P Chris tian at Work Fbom the Talmud. "Who is strongP He who subdues bis passions. Who is richP He who is satisfied with his lot." "He who sacrifices a whole offering shall be rewarded for a whole offering; be who offeis a burnt offering shall bo re warded of a burnt offering; bat he who fffig humility to God end mm shall be rewarded with a reward aa if ho bad fered all tbe sacrifice in the woiid." "There are four oharaoters in scholars : Quick to bear and quick to forget, bis gain is canceled by his loss ; slow to hear and slow to forget, his loss is can celed by bis gain ; quick to hear and slow to forget is wise; slow to hear and quick tofoiget,thisianevillot." 'There are foar characters in those who sit un der tbe wise; sponge, a funnel, a strain er and a bolt-sieve. A sponge, whiob sucks up all ; a funnel, which lets in here and lets out there; a strainer, which lets out the wine and keeps back tbe dregs; a bolt-sieve, which lets cut tbe pollard and kef pi back tbe flour." -He who has more learning lhan good works is like a tree witb many branches but few roots, which the first wind throws on its faoe; while lie whose works are greater than his knowledge is like a tree with many roots and fewer branches, but which all tbe winds of heaven cannot uproot." "If thy wife is small, bend down to her and whisper in her ear. He who forsakes tbe love of his youth. God's altar weeps for him. He who sees his wife die before bim. has. as it were, been present at tbe destruction of the snneluary itself around him the world grows dark." "He who marries for money, his children shall be a curse to him." Eibbi Jose aid : "I never called my wife 'wife.' but home.' for she indeed makes my borne."
