Agricultural and Liye
It Is "waste time" when a farmer
loses an average of half an hour a
day doing his feeding for the lack of
a few conveniences. One may be
busy, and yet idle.
He is truly a bungler who every
time he goes to his badly located
piggery with a pail of slop must
climb into the pen to adjust the
loose trough, which is rooted about

hay or straw for bedding may be

Spanish farmers use the same
plows as did the Moors when Isa
bella expelled them. Machines for
sowing, reaping or threshing are
unknown. The grain is winnowed
by women, who toss it into the air.
Some kinds of early corn will
stand closer planting than is usual.
The field will thus be practically
enlarged. Rows four feet apart will
contain 2,732 hills to the acre; if
three feet apart, 4,810.
Often farmers need exhorting
rather than teaching. Underdraw
ing and manuring will work won
ders. It is a mistake to think we
can not have good fields nor gar
dens because the soil is a little
"Take no thought for the morrow"
does not mean that we must not
plan for the future. There is too
much doing of that which is con
venient, without a thought as to
whether it is the thing most needed
to be done.
If farmers will cultivate the mind
as well as the soil, perfection in
agriculture could be approached in
a few years. The tilling of the soil
is destined to become the most
learned and practical of all the pro
fessions. If croHsing the farm without a tool
in the hand, resort to a stick, a jack
knife or the toe of the boot in the
war against weed pests. If all land
owners would persistently fight this
tles and dock they would be soon ex
terminated. Slack a pound of lime, and, while
hot and at the consistence of cream,
add a pint of linseed oil and a quar
ter of a pound of dissolved glue, and
let stand a half day. For interior
walls this is superior to simple lime
In many regions it is the custom
to begin feeding hogs green corn as
soon as the ears are glazed. This is
rather a wasteful practice, but there
is sufficient compensation for loss of
grain in the consumption for loss of
It is not advisable to allow feed to
go to waste, but it is not good
economy to permit the serious in
jury of a good meadow to save a
small amount of grass. Do not pas
ture too long after harvest.
Little things in agriculture repre
sent the dilference between profit
and loss a few more bushels of
grain an acre, a little heavier yield
of butter a cow, a little faster gain
in the fattening cattle; proper care
will procure all these.
Straw alone contains but a small
proportionate amount of plant food,
but if properly used as an absorbent
it provides one of the best of ma
nures. To let it rot down in the
stack is a poor way.
Land too rough for cultivation
should either be seeded with good
grasses for sheep or planted with
timber or fruit tree9. There is very

Fifty years ago breeders protested
earnestly against the innovation of
the iron horse, and predicted death
to all industries connected with
horse flesh ; but every snort of the

It is still claimed by some feeders
that hogs at four and a half cents
will pay $1 for the wheat consumed.
There is no question but that more
wheat is bound to go into pork in
some some shape in the future.
The winter feeding of hogs is
generally an expensive matter,
especially when grain is the main
dependence; but there is no reason
why it should be so, for much more
economical food can be provided.
Good corn ensilage will carry the
hogs through the winter in good
condition, and leave a much great
er profit about the cost of feeding
than ir grain is used. Sow a field
for this purpose, and test the matter.

Poultry Notett For June.
Your houses should have been
given a spring cleaning last month,
but it is not too late now. June is
the month to take all precautions
against lice. Clean your drop boards
every morning, and kerosene your
roosts upper and under side once a
week. Kerosene also your nest
boxes at least twice a month from
now until cold weather, and renew
the bedding that your hen may
have sweet, clean nests. Cull out
your early hatched chicks and keep
your bestand mostperfectspecimens
separate, and keep them growing.
June is a good month to set eggs
from the Leghorns, Minoreas and
others of the Mediterranean class,
for late fall layers.
(live your laying stock as much
range as possible that they may find
the bugs and insects so necessary
for them at this season.
