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

which has taken away more than has boen ro

A Dlenty of stable manure would doubtless an-

must be secured. Shall the owner ol ! .nth

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

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

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.
