THE BRATTLEBORO REFRMER, APRIL 11, 1884.
a v FAIM AND HOME, TnE VOUNOOT FARMS OF NEW UNO LAND. Can Thoy he Restored to Fertility. There is no donylng tlie fact that many of tbeftirnnin New England are deteriorating. Their productiveness Is much less at present than formerly, nd In many instancei Bnf less voar by year. Their formor fertility has most cheaply to restore th . lertlhty is an important problem upon the cor rect solution of which the success of fuming to this section in a groat degree ! soil has been depleted by a system of fanning which has taken away more than has boen ro stored. Undor such management the result tSTtnerltalito, aud could easily have been fore- t0Tue remedy would seem to bo In reversing this process and in applying to the soil such qnantUic. of plant food In available form as the grow tag crops may require. In what form and what source shall this plant taod A Dlenty of stable manure would doubtless an- tu assert that If the crops of the farm are leu JpXVStae. and all the fertilizing to monts saved and restored to the soil there won d bo sufficient to maintain the present far tiZ. This is probably true, but -at -prMen managed there is aptto be a loss. Besides his Sere are very many farms that need something now thon jt sufficient to maintain their own They need to be made much more produrtlw or the mortgage will increase in size instead of d ashing! Buttothta neo ductiveness something more than the mere Sg out of the scanty crops and the aPPl fa tten of the resultant manure is needed. It Is evment that something from outside fources must be secured. Shall the owner ol ! .nth farm who has determined to improve It, de pend upon-commercial fertilizers, or shall ho C g aln to feed to stock and in that manner Sase the size and value of the manure heap We have in mind a farm of about loo acres which U a type of many others about the conn S This farm was sold a short time since for J&O, a little more than one-half he co t 15 voars aco A large portion of tho hay tor the fast few y art fcu been sold, and but hto 8?ock has been kept so that the farm Is well worn, most of the fields yield a scanty crop o Stop. Now what course shall the .present owner pursue in order to restore the lost ferUl fty to the farm and at the same time make a living. This may seem a difficult task, but It roust be done or the farm will again be sold to satisfy a mortgage. If tho owner had plenty of capS wUh whifh to purchase fortlUzers i the question would be very much simpl fled, for by the judicious use of abundant capital, almost any question in farming can be solved. But -capital is not always abundant with young men who purchase wornout farms in Vermont. The first great need of course is fer Uizeis, for without these his labor will be in vain. To in crease the size and value of the manure heap s the first and most Important, work, for this means an increase of the fertility and produc Uve capacity of the soil. With this end in view the first thing to be done is to tear up the stable floors and remove the rich fertilizing ma terial which has been accumulating there for the past 20 yearB or more. This, added to the lim ited supply to be found at the stable windows will fertilize the garden and a small field of com and potatoes. But if he does nothing more than this each year the farm wi 1 only hold Its own. The man who gets a living by the cultivation of a farm must sell some of the products, and he will improve his farm much faster if these products are in the form of fat, because with fat he sells no fertility. This be ing the case perhaps the best stock that he can keep will be dairy cows the, selling product of -which is butter. As upon the farm that we are considering, the feed in the pastures is mostly white top, and as this is of very little value if allowed to head out, but If "closely fed during the season Is worth something, then it follows that It should be closely fed. To do this more, cows should be turned m than the pasture will support, and the deficiency supplied at the barn with a ration of bran, corn meal or cotton seed " meal, or all combined,- ns tho -case may., be. Good cows should be keptj such as with the -care indicated above will yield a product of at least two hundred pounds of butter per year. Regular customers should be obtained who will take the butter each week. This will give ready money, with which to pay current ex penses, " . For the purpose of utilzing the waste pro ducts of the dairy let several early pigs be pur chased. These, if weU fed will Ixs made fit for the butcher by early winter, and if disposed of at that time will yield a profit besides adding materially to the size of tho manure heap. To ' eke out the feed in the pasture during the sea son of draught which is pretty sure to come at the latter part of summer, a field of fodder corn must be planted, even if fertilizers have to be bought. . The cows should be stabled during the sum mer and the manure mixed with the proper amount of absorbents, and sheltered, Irom m pig-pen and cow stable there will have ac cumulated a large quantity of the very best ma nure. Here the question of the application of manures comes in. To increase the production ef grass must be the object at present. A hat ever may be said about the importance of pro ducing our own corn, it will not 1 profitable to undertake to raise it at first very extensively upon a wornout farm in Vermont. On such a farm grass is more easily and profitably grown. Instead of following the time-honored system, which has been practiced during the last few iterations and under which the farms have so many of them reached their present condition ririi!t- fim farmer must cet out of the iuivn.".j , . . ruts. He must avoid the practice of putting aU the manure each year upon a Biuuu corn to be followed the next year by oats and seeded to grass a course which of necessity takes a greater part of the plant food from the manure which was applied to the corn crop, so that at tho end of the rotation, the soil is in no better condition to produce a crop of grass than when it was first broken except that it is in bet ter tilth. The better way would be, during the n m hroak nn a few acres of this VUIUIII& All", ' woi out land which gives now about one-half ton of hay per acre, anu eveniy Bureau mi m ;,.rtn,i fnn-nwn elioiit ten loads per acre of that excellent manure which has been saved during the summer.

Well, this old Indian style ot work will rosult lu an ordinary quality of sugar, but higher grades are now domanded, with prices accordingly. . Moro knowledge on this subject is absolutely necessary to success. This Is obtained by study , observation and experiment. I have studlod the maplo,-and experimented with it for fifteen years. I have drawn its sap from clrcuinier ence to centre, and from fifteen foot below the stump or bottom of the tree to the top, or among thA n,nli thirtv-six loci mgu. i that sap vorlos in three respects in all parts Tt ,iur,.ra in piinr. sweetness a WVIJ UVOl Mi.iv.- . l T density.

"I was sick,'' he answered, "at the time of tapplgn, and my hired man tapped, and since getting better, while helping gather, I pulled out several spouts and found that he had bored considerable deeper than I am in the habit of doing, but I did not realize before that such a course would account for the dark SUfZftl'" It is ft fact that the deeper we bore the darker Is the sap and sugar. Sap near the centre en trees is but little better tbaa water; it weighs the same, two pounds and one ounce per quart by my cup, while our ordinary and average sap from our store-tubs weighs two pounds and 1 1-2 ounces. Again, the sap Incrcasos in den sity as we go np the tree, until, as I have found by experiment, it may weigh two pounds and seven ounces, taken from tho top ot the tree or among the limbs. A second-growth sugar p ace, bored half an inch deep, is capable ol making very nice sugar, and the trees are injured but '"contrary to the common opinion, white sngar can bo made through the entire sugar season by drawing sap from the snrface, which can be done bv moving tho tub and tapping in a new place. ' Two shullow holes will not do the in jury that ono deep ono will incur. If one has a second-growth sugar orchard, on dry. rocky land, scattered In open country, with plenty ot room for sunshine between the trees, with short bodies and low bushy tops; and if he uses tho double-tinned spouts, or tho liurcka, boring on the south side of the trees one-half iuch deep, supplied also with the white metal tubs ; and it he has for a boiling apperatus an improved style evaporator, ho is armed ond equipped for making a fancy article of maple sugar.

TU A..kTTiAnf thacA BTi.fa TlT thA HAH S fill t X ilC OObli..ll&lsii vj-i. iiivav wwvu -j of alljparties interested, save perhaps Waite, is important to the stockholders of the defunct bank, inasmuch as it probably Insures an early and final disposition of the aff.iirs of that insti tution, which conld not be settled until these suits had been disposed of. What are the stocknoiuers niteiy to uvo irum mo icv.n i That's a question not easily answered, owing to the present uncertainty as to what Waite's insolvent estate will finally pay. It will be re membered that the bank obtained a judgment against his estate for something over $70,000, which will be the. largest claim of the many presented. The assignees may havo in their possession $15,000, which was realized from the sale of Waite's property here, and possibly a little more. Suppose that the estate pays 10 cents on 1 ; then there would be less than $7000 to divide among the stockholders from this source. It may pay moro than this, but it is hardly probable that it will without happily disappointing the stockholders. The receiver of course has a much larger sum than this which will be distributed after the legitimate expenses have been deducted. This having been done, perhaps the sum to be apportioned among the stockholders will amount to $30,000. The capital stock of the bank was represented to be $300,000, but a portion of this was found to be fictitious, and therefore could not be as sessed for the losses and will not be reckoned of course jn the division. Receiver Price, who has been instrumental in settling these suits, to the end that he could straighten out the bank s affairs, is expected here soon, and until his report is made the nraount to be apportioned cannot be definitely stated; but in no event will the stockholders get back the 42a per cent assessment which was made necessary by Waite's heavy haul. It is reported that Waite is dissatisfied with these set tlements and will move to undo them. There is a wide conviction that the fruits of his peculations await his freedom, and snch a con viction is not calculated to soothe the feelings of many a financially ruined stockholder.
