1 Hlitla lor Xliu Season. Swamp Muok. If tho ieiuoa remalm open, no better work can bo (lone tlmn getrtng out muck from the swamp to be nxponutt to the fioeilng nnd tlmwiug of the winter. It is nlwy vnliwlilu lis nn absorbent, and often eoutitlus much am monia. Biiaup are peculiarly sensitive to good treatment. A good shepherd Is always gentle among ' lit sheep. Ewes which are to lamb early ought to be by themselves m l uave belter cure as their time approach es. Feed a fow more turnips and give them a llttlo more liberal sprinkling of.corn meal and bran, or oil cake. A very valuablo fertilizer la lost by not saving tno manuro from tho lien-housc, which Is nearly as strong ns guano. The health of the fowls demands that the poultry-houses be regularly cleaned, and at each cleaning the droppings may be placed In a barrel, with alternate layers of road dust or coal-ashes, each layer au inch in thickness. Cotton seed oil cake meal Is being large ly used and is worthy of being fed more extonsivcly. Cotton seed ts used in . the Southern Stales with good results. The meal should bo fed mixed with bran and best on cut hay. A llttlo corn meal added gives flavor and color to the butter. Kowou or well cured lawn clippings are the best food for giving color to cream and butter in winter. Fiona of sulphur is a simple and ef fective remedy against worms in pigs, and tho animals readily partake of it when mixed in gruel or other sloppy food. For -pigs under threo months old, a tnaspoouful is a dose, and tor oiuer ones a aiumi spoonful. It may be given four days in succession, morning and evening, and re peated every other week. Give pleuty of sour milk, green food, celery tops, acorns and sliced raw onions. Avoid stagnant and putrid water. Give access to charcoal and ashes. Western Sural. Fob the last nine years I have used, both In this country and in northern Illinois, the soft soap wash on apple trees. About June 15 I take a sufficient quantity of the soap, thin a little, let stand half a day to thoroughly mix, aud then paste or paint it on the trees with a large paint brush. First scraping the body of the tree and see ing that the trunk is clean, put on plenty of aoap as high on the limbs as one has time and patience, and extending well to the ground. One will be astonished at the beneficial effect. Currenpundcnt of Tribune. Miloh Cows. These ought to be well fed, and cleaned by a curd and brush, daily, if possible, otherwise twice a week. They should be milked up to within four weeks of calving. It is a great temptation to dry off a cow so as to save the labor ol milking, and not alone will hired men do this, but the farmers themselves generally do it, and think that they can save a good deal in feed and labor, while in reality, with young cows, they impart a habit of going dry early, which will last them as long as they live. The better milch cows are fed, the better return they give, but feed judiciously. The readiness with which fowls will eat the various garden vegetables depends on habit or education, if we may use so pre tentious a word. In winter chop up car rots, turnips, beets, mangolds, or cheap Beedling apples, if the latter can be afford ed; and to teach the fowls to cat these, thoroughly mixed with meal till appetite is acquired, when they may be given alone, and alternately raw and cooked. Boiled potatoes and raw cabbage will general. j be eaten without previous training, and this fact indicates that they are the beBt vegeta ble food for winter. Early Lambs. Now is the time to speak for early lambs. It is quite probable that the price of early lambs next Bummer will be higher than it was the past summer. Many who raised them llie past season uia not realize as high prices as they oxpectad, and part of them will not take the trouble to raise them the coming year, so that there will be all the better chance for those who do. Let the lambs come early, feed the sheep liberally with roots and grain, and give the lambs all they can eat, and good prices will bo obtained for them. Raising lambs for ten cents a pound wili pay, but when twenty or twenty five cents can be obtained, as is sometimes the case, the profits arc such as are highly pleasing to the farmer who has plenty of good fat lambs to sell. Pias. Nearly double the feed will be required to keep pigs from going back, after really cold weather comes on say, when the ground freezes. It is then best to kill at once. Every farmer ought to be able to kill and cut up his own pigs. Butchers are often very rough and brutal. This is not necessary. Many a farmer kills his own pigs because he wants the job kindly and humanely done. He actually thrusts the knife as if he loved the victim. Feed soaked corn, that is, corn which is covered with as much boiling water as it will take up in twenty-four hours. This is better for either fattening or store pigs than coarse meal, unless the latter be thor oughly cooked. Poultry. Hens will lay up to Christ mas, if they have warm quarters. A manure shed, where mixed manure throws off considerable warmth, and which is closed in, but well ventilated, is an excel lent place for fowls. They are kept warm and comfortable, their droppings are all saved, going to enrh-h the manure, and they keep on laying, often all winter. At noun feed, in open weather, soft food -tot is, boiled potatoes mixed with bran h' (1 corn-meal, or something of the kind ; at night give a good feed of whole grain, tii owing down enough to call them off the roosts for an early breaklast, unless thereby you will be feeding an army of rats all night. In snowy and frozen weather, feed three times a day, and give only what they will run after at each meal. To wash flannels: First have soft water tot the whole process, made so arti ficially if necessary, and next have good aoap, or that which does not contain rosin. Our best soaps are good for this purpose. Tou may wash and rinse entirely in cold water if you choose, but if you wash in warm water you must not rinse in cold. It is decidedly best to use only warm water all through, the rinsing water warmer than the su.ls, if there is any difference. It is best to make a good, strong, clean suds (and not wash nice white flannels in a dirty suds with other clothes that are to be boiled), and put the flannels in it, instead of rub bing soap into the cloth. Hand rubbing tends to full and shrink flannel, as it mats and interlaces the delicate fibers. Ameri can Agriculturist. Lass Colobixo. We are happy in the belief that the craze of high coloring is passing by. As we showed in a late num ber of the Freeman, coloring only lias made the frauds in butler making possi ble, and people are made to eat tallow, lard and aoapslone butter, only be cause coloring has made the cheat possible. Cheese has had the same disease, but some of its dealers and coosurwrs are getting a little better of it, as the following from the American Dairynvtn will show, its, "tone it down" a little by all means : "It is our opinion that the market would eventually he improved if a general system of shading down the color was adopted to bring our factory make to more nearly re ferable the famous Stilton.

At the West, they are not considered worth the saving, though stock ara often turned into tho corn-fields to cat whal they will after tho nam have been gathered. Tho only eastern man of prominence who has talked against corn-fodder, is Dr. Lorlng, president of tho New Engllnd ugricultural society, nnd even ho is wi:ling to admit a difference between the corn-fodder and fod der com, meaning by the first the slalks or "stover of field corn after removing tho ears, aud by the second corn grown thickly on purpose for feeding ei ther green or dry. This last ho ad mits to be vulunhle thouirh he thinks even that is over-estimated. On the other hand, that other medical farmer, Dr. Farmer, lately editor of the Hcitiutiflo Farmer, reckons his "stover" at two-thirds the value of the price of god hay, and ha raises large fields of corn partly with the view of using the dry stalks for cow feed, und sell ing his hay. Though we have grown and fed both corn fodder and f odder-corn for many years, yet wo never tried feeding It alone to milch cows uutil the present season. We confess that wo have been disappointed with it. Until our early sweet corn was in tho milk, wo soiled our cows upon grass cut upon Amass Scott's plan before tho stem appeared and with excellent results. We hud ono-balf acre of sweet corn growing in alternate rows with newly-s t strawberries, as a Bhade to the young plants. In August we begnn cutting this and taking about half tho best cars for the pig, giving all the lest to the cows. The declino in tho quantity and quality of the milk was immediate aud marked. An allowance of a quart of meal additional per day did not bring cither quantity or quality back to the standard of grass. Lately, the sweet corn being ex hausted, we have been feeding Sanford corn, which is much better liked by tho cows, and, probably as aconsequence, is produc ing more milk. We should not have be lieved Sanford corn to be much better than sweet corn had we not seen how much bet ter it is eaten. Yet even the Sanford is in ferior to grass. Cured corn-fodder, if well cured, with the corn that grows on it, ground and fed with it, has always proved with us so nearly equal to fair average hay that we could not notice a difference ; but when fed alone it makes very white butter that is hard to churn. Nicely cured corn fodder, not grown so thick but there are a good many nubbins on it, is better, in out experience, than average hay for butter production. We have never, however, been able to get any corn-fodder of so good a kind, or so perfectly cured, that less than twenty per cent of the total weight was rejected by cows. This rejected portion, consisting of the butts of stalks, is not a total loss, as horses will eat a good deal of what the cows leave. We do not believe that it could be mado profitable to force cows in milk to eat up the best corn-fodder, or fodder-corn, perfectly clean. No doubt they could be starved into it, but where is your milk in that case ? You won't find much of it in the pail. Here, if anywhere, comes in the main profit of ensilage. The fermentation of ensilage, according to the chemists, makes about four per cent more of the fodder corn digestible than in the raw state. Add this to the twenty per cent usually left by the cows, if not forced to eat it, and we have a gain of one-fourth in the feeding value of ensilage over perfectly cured corn fodder. When we consider the difficulty and, we may say, in some seasons, the impossibility of so perfectly curing corn fodder that it will not mould, we think it would be fair to say that tho gain of en silage (as to feeding valne) over cured fod der corn can hardly be on an ayerago, less than one-third. If com fodder could bo preserved by en silage without the production of alcohol or vinegar in the mass, there seems no reason to doubt that its use would prove of vast benefit to dairy farmers. To increase the feeding value of fodder-corn one-third, as we have no doubt is thecase when ensilaged is to put it about on an equality with the beBt hay cut in the blossom. When with such ensilage a mixture of bran or oat-meal is fed to milch cows in winter, we should expect the milk and butter yield to be quite satisfactory, iiui me euecnu buui uuj i cobolic ensilage unoutlie teelh and stomachs of cows would, we greatly fear, soon prove so injurious that the loss in the end woum be ureater than the gain. It is not impos sible that chemistry may be able to give us some cheap and harmless substances, wm.cu sprinkled upon the ensilage, will prevent these harmful fermentative processes, and give us a perfectlj Bwect ensilage. If this result can be reached, we should expect to see the use of ensilage become general on our dairy farms. T. B. Boskim. Sorghum. Mr. Editor: While the sugar making is being discussed I will give you our expe rience with the amber cane. We planted a few seeds of the above cano last spring, in the garden. This fall my brother made a small mill to crush the stalks. 1 tluuk there could not have been over two hundred and fifty stalks, but did not count them. Neither do I know how much juice was ob tained from these stalks, but after it was boiled down there was over a gallon of very thick syrup. Il was very clear and light colored, equal to any maple syrup I have ever seen. We shall plant a considerable quantity of it next spring, and I think some of our neighbors will also. We tried a few corn stalks, but did not get as good results they did not make as much good syrup. It is proven beyond all dmbt in my mind that the farmers in Vermont can raise their own sweetening at a much less cost than by depending upon maple trees to say noth ing about having to work in the slush with wet feet, etc. It can be made with the same apparatus that is used for making maple sugar, 4nd with much leBS labor. Yocno Farmer. Grand Isle, Vt., Nov. 8, '80. We must remark to Young Farmer that we do not believe that sorghum, beets or any other substitute will ever drive out the manufacture of our delicious maple sugHr, the flavor of which will make it an article of luxury for all time. But it via can from corn, sorehum or beets pro duce at home what we now import, we shall have taken a very important step forward in national prosperity. Utilizing Old Tim Cass. Canned fruit and vegetables are now so universally con sumed that there are few persons who do not have more or less cans daring the year. The old cans seem to be too good to throw away, and as there is no sale for them they accumulate. With a-little skill and effort I hey may be turned to good service. For instance, take off the top of the can, punch holes on opposite sides near the rim, put in a wire bail, and you have a little bucket which may serve for a paint pot, to keep nails in, or for numerous other uses. Take off the top, cut the proper shape, and fasten on a handle by means of a screw through a bole in the bottom, and a useful scoop may be made by cutting down a can, leav ing" strip to lie bent at right angles. If the strip- for the handle be left wide enough to bend around a stick, it will be much stronger.

Secre tary Gold, you know, has a large herd of cattle. He has used hull, of all the pop ular breeds, or nearly all, one after another, and in summing up his experi-cn;-e for many years, is of the opinion that the calves of the first cross, saying nothirg alwut the virtues of the different breeds, were generally the be. In an swer to a question whether he did not take more pains with his calves from every new bull, he thought not, because the game bull was sometimes kept several vears, and long enough fee any special newness of interest to wear off, and yet the calve, from the cow. not akin to the bull were, as a general rule, better. So much of an experiment as this is a prat nndrrtaking for a man of Mr. Gold', varied pursuit to carry out, and require, a long term of years. Whether every individual bull in hi. herd was aelertcd with a view to cover aome defect therein, and whet bar the herd wa. carefully and rigidly weedod according to some land ard of ultlmato perfection, did not appea" in our conversation.

Men are usually tempted hy the devil, but an idle man positively tempts the devil, Sjximsh I'roverb. He who can contemplate his past and not receive many warnings from it, must have had a remarkably stupid existence. The noblest buildings made with hands for spiritual ends must lack the perfection of grace and beauty, unless lit from the lamp of sacrifice. Temptation is a fearful word. It indi cates the beginning of a possible scries of infinite evils. It is the ringing of an alarm bell whose melancholy sounds may rover- berate through eternity. JNo one pays any attention to signs marked "Dangerous" that others set up over thin spots in the ice of life ; each one prefers to run his own risk of drowning rather than conteas another man wiser tlmn he. There is much pain that is quite noise- less : and vibrations that make human agonies arc often a mere whisp.-r in the roar of hurrying existence. There are glances of hatred that stab and raise no cry of murder: robberies that leave man or woman forever beggared of peace and joy, vet kept Becret by tho sullerer, commit ted to no sound save that of low moans in the night, seen in no writing except that made on the face by the slow months of suppressed anguish and early morning tears. The poets have told us of a dolorous en chanted forest in the under world. The thorn bushes there, and the thick barked stems, have human histories hidden in ttem ; the power of unuttered cries dwells in the passionless seeming brandies, and the red warm blood is darkly feeding the quivering nerves of a sleepless memory that watches through all dreams. These things are a parable. George Eliot, Gladstone's Thoughts. (From If Ight and Went, a recent work by Hon, vr. Jfc. umuniune ) . Men are apt to mistake the strength of their feeling for the strength 6f their argu ment. The heated mind resents the chill touch and relentless scrutiny of logic. I have no dreams of a jolden age : there will always be more than enough to de plore, more than enough to mend. But let us at least thrust aside the wanton crimina tion ; and let us labor, in patience and good will toward all to handle and direct for the best the movements of our time. No wave on the great ocean of time, when once it has floated past us, can be recalled. AU we can do is to watch the new form and motion of the next, and launch upon it to try, in the manner our best judgment may suggest, our strength ana skiii. We cannot change the profound and re sistless tendencies of the age toward relig ious liberty. It is our business to guide and control their application. Do this you may. Hut to endeavor to turn them back ward is the SDOrt of children, doue by the hands of men j and every effort you make in that direction will recoil upon you in disaster and disgrace. The free expression of opinion, as our experience has taught us, is me saiety valve of passion. That noise of the rush ing steam, when it escapes, alarms the timid : but it is the sign that we are safe. The concession of reasonable privilege anticipates the growth of furious appetite. We live, as men, in a labyrinth af problems, and of moral problems from which there is no escape permitieu ua. Solution for them we have none. But a scheme came 1800 years ago into the world which is an earnest harbinger of so lution. Running Over. I have read in philosophy of a natural lake on an Alpine slope which discharges IU waters when full, by natural syphon underground, until completely emptied. Then it does not discharge a drop of water again until it is full. The lake is fed by melted anowa and hidden springs. The valleys below wait for months, dried and parched and seared, for the water to refresh them from the lake. But the lake is good for nothing until it gets full and runs over. Thus it wa with the Psalmist His heart was like the natural lake. From one bill of bluavinn a stream ol 107 ran mto Ins heart, from another mil a nn of thanksgiving, and from another hill another rill, etc. And then there were some very large underground springs in Davids own heart And the uiviue blessing flowed into it, intensifying and thrilling his poetic nature until be got full and ran over. And the Psalmt are what ran over. David waa not good for anything to write I'salnia, or sing, or preach, or fight Uod a battle, until ne got full and ran over. John Wesley, .Martin Luther, Knox, Whiicfield, Bun yan, were men who were full of God's bleasine until they ran over. Ana an the positive good they ever did humanity is just what ran over, reople have canea tliem inspired. To moral vacuum men full of Uod and running over are inspira tions, I suppose. But they simply are full of godliness until they run over. What make the churches so ary to day, and barren becauae they are dry. and dead because they are barren, ia be cause the waste of life doe not run from and into Ibrm. Half a dVwni of bia church member will take all the spirit ual overflow of the minister. He feet a rrligiou auction from hi charge, draw ing the spiritual life out of turn, ado verr manr minister appear thnupti there were few and (mall stream of di vine fnre running into their brarta, or else then were very large bote that let out the water of life at the bottom.
