FlELPEARPEN COLORS FOR FARM BUILDINGS. Avoid Characterless Coloring Employ Strong Contrasting Colors A Few liules. In paiuting house or bam, take iuto account natural environment. Surround ed by trees and shrubbery, the building should be iu light colors, as these afford the best contrast with the Betting of trees, cto., ond look better at a distance. Where the building stands in the open, more subdued coloring may be employ ed. The reasons for theso rules must bo obvious. The buildings are required to sustain color relations with Iho sur rounding country, explains a correspond ent of The Counlry Gentlemen, and au thority for the following: The so called colonial coloring palo yellow with white trim is pretty for n farmhouse of plastered stone or of frame, especially where surrounded by trees. The trim should be as white as possible, the blinds green, and the shutters and doors white. If the roof is shingled, stain it a dull red or brown. In the ab sence of a knowledge of color, a good color perception is useful, but few pos sess this gift. Hence a few general rules may not ba amiss. Avoid pale characterless coloring. Employ strong, rich, contrasting colors. A safe rule is to use shades of one color say the body is drab, then add more Timber and some lampblack and a bit of red to make trim color. Lighten body color for slats of blinds and slightly darken it for panels of shutters and doors. Uso trim color for stiles and rails (framework) of blinds and shutters and doors, as well as for cornice, corner pieces, etc. That would be what we call color harmony by analogy. By contrast is when we use positive colors, such as red beside, say, green. Sashrs dono in red, look well with almost any color scheme. Venetian and Indian reds, mixed half and half, give a nico sash red and Tnsccn red, a darker sort, is general favorite. Tho most beautiful n is cno used by tho carriage painter ai known usually as aurora lake.. It costs $1 a pound, though half a pound would do the windows of an average house, Tuscan rod gives a gocd color for blinds. and, like all iron base colors, is quiti durable. Blinds aro usually diflicult to paint a finitablo color. Cold colors are hardly ever as well adapted to surroundings us tho warmer colors. And yet cool grays Jcok well in conjunction with other colors in masses, Tako a cottage that has natural (struc tural) divisions. Tho first story, unless of stono or brick, may bo iu Tuscan red, the next a Icadish gray and the gables a warm yellow. Nothing is prettier than a cottage structure thus painted, and the gray is tho most pleasing color of the lot, though massed by itself it proves cold and repollnnt. Buildings that have. no such structural divisions must bo painted in one color from bottom to top, excepting of conrso tho trim. Groups of buildings Fhould be of one color scheme. If the dwelling is in co lonial yellow and white then the barn may be in ocher color and white. Tho barn, being iu the open, must be more Eubdued in color than the tree surround ed house. If the house is in rather sub dued coloring, then the barn may be in iron oxido brown. High buildings look best with dark roofs; ditto massive buildings. Low buildings look best with light colored roofs. Ah a rule, the roof sustains no color relation with tho rest of tho struc turo, but a dark rocf implies heaviness and a light color the contrary ; benco the rule above given. Nitrogen From tho Air. That nitrogen can be obtained from the air for f riilizing crops, instead of paying 15 to 25 cents per pound for it in tho form of commercial fertilizer or ammonia containing substances, has now been abundantly demonstrated. Clover and other leguminous plants, if their roots are infected with the proper germ or bacteria, have tho power to get their nitrogwi from the air. The little nodules found on the roots of these le guminous plants contain minute organ isms that enable the plant to fix free ui- trogen. Just how this is done is not defi nitely settled, although progress in this direction is being yearly inado by care ful scientists in this country and Eu rope. American Agriculturist considers this discovery one of tho greatest strides that agricultural science has made of late years, and calls attention to tho fact that bacteria is also responsible for much progress in tho dairy, and tho ef fect of certain germs on soils and plants is coming to be better understood, so that tho farmer can rmiko use of the good bacteria and get rid cf tho bad ones. Theso and kindred topics are just ly receiving much attention at the in stitutes and other fanners' nieotiugs for discussion this winter. LIME AND GYPSUM. tThen Limn TroveH Ileneflcial UeneQts Derived From Gjpsoin Uow to Apply. "Which is tho better for ordinary land, lime cr plaster, and will lime and plaster do 1 e'tcr as fop dressing or when plowed unr'v? II v.v much of either should bo used per acrs?" Hero are queries of gi neral interest. They aro an swered as follows by Country Gentle man : Lime is lively to prove most benefi cial if thrro hi r.u abundance cf vegeta ble matter (humus) in flje nil, as it tends not ouly to mr.ke available the nitrogenous compounds, but fho miner al constituents as well, and it nearly always improves the physical condition or testuro of tho laud. Twenty to 40 bushels of lime per acre are a fairly lib eral dressing, though 100 bushels would do no harm, but would probably exceed the most profitable limit cf application. Gypsum (land plaster) increases the power of tho soil to absorb ammonia from the air, but the air contains so lit tle ammonia that the beneficial cHect cf tho plaster in this direction is very small. The benefits derived from an ap plication of gypsum, if fairly pure and finely ground, are sometimes very re markable. It acts on the double silicates that is, breaks them down and liber ates potash. Clovers are always benefit ed by available potash; houce even a light application of gypsum on clover lands frequently produces marked re sults. But one to two bushels per aero are applied at a time, because it re quires relatively large quantities of wa ter to dissolve tho gypsum ; so it is good economy to use a light dressing yearly, as the chances are that if a large quantity is used it will fail to produce boneficial results for want of moisture to dissolve, it. Gypsiini is best sown broadcast in early spring on clover and meadow land, or it maybe mixed wim an equal quan tity cf ashes or commercial fertilizers and distributed in the hill or drill and mixed with tho soil whee corn, pota toes and like crops are to be planted, or it may be scattered around the bills, after tho plants aro well through the ground, at tho rate cf twoor three table spoonfuls to tho bill. , PROOF ISJOSITIVE TIIAT LYDIA E.

The time is coming when buyers will consider a farm's water supply before its soil. Tho possibilities for irrigation will, some day, be measured iu dollars and cents as they should bo. Wo know cf a strawberry grower who spent a long time hunting for a farm his chief idea Leing to find a place whore ho could irrigate from tho river. Such men are w hat is termed "longhoaded." They think ahead of tho crowd, and thus sccuro valuablo privileges for littlo money. They see values where others see only dirt or water. Irrigation is surely coming. Rural Now Yorker. Forcing; Itoans. By making a sowing of beans say twico a month a 6teady supply will be kept up all winter. American Garden ing recommends Ne Plus Ultra and War wick as two excellent beans for forcing, and advises a like amount of wood ash es in tho vegetable house, giving a dress ing of ashes and forking it in for every crop. Maplo Simp and Runnr. In a bulletin from tho New ILirrip sliire station it is stated that experi ments in letting sap stand for several days beforo boiling, filtering sap, and rapid and slow evaporation bad no de cisive effect on tho com position cf tho sirup. The sirups from soft maplo were somowhat inferior to those from rock maples both in color and flavor. Delay in boilir.g sap did not seom to affect tho color cf tho sirup, but injured its flavor. Bap that was kept five days and 1l:en boiled gavo ono of the lightest colored samples produced. The rapidity of boiling had little influence on the color, samples cf sirup from saps that wo allowed to slowly simmer away bo ing as light colored as those from simi lar saps boiled rapidly. Tho lightest colored samples were produced ty boiling a quantity of sap until finished, without addition cf fresh sap. One sample produced by boiling about two quarts of sap in a largo glass beaker until it was thick sirup, with out addition-cf sap and without skim ming, had littlo more color than the sap from which it had been made. This sap was from covered buckets and was thoroughly strained through cloth before boiling. Sjp filtered through quartz sand produced a sirup in no way supe rior to tho preceding, while one filtered through boneblack lost almost entirely the characteristics maple flavor. Sap mixed with rainwater gavo a sirup ob joctionably dark colored. Dark sugars contained less saccharose and more re ducing sugars than light sugars and had a much lower purity coefficient. Experiments during three years in tapping at depths of from to 0 inch es indicated that tho flow of. sap is largo ly dependent upon tho depth of tho tr.p ping, tho deeper the hole the greater tho flow, and that tho theory that all cr nearly all the sap comes from tho outer wood is erroneous. The results of com parativo tests of tapping the north and south sides of trees favor tho latter. A single bole yielded slightly more sap than two holes close together. TI19 Tobacco Seed Bed. The se3dbed for tobacco should bo lo cated so that tho cold winds of early spring and summer cannot touch tho plants, and with a sunny, southerly ex posuro. They need warmth and sun shine, and too much of theso cannot be given in our northern latitudes. The seed bed should bo enriched with rolia bio brands of fertilizers or by well rotted mauure. Coarse barnyard ma nuro will not do. It must be thorough ly composted to give good results. Good seeds of good varieties must be secured at any cost. It will not pay to experi meut with any inferior sort, for at the best northern tobacco is none too good Tho seeds are very small, a heaping tea Epoonful cf them being enough to cover each squurorod of laud, and consequent ly tho bed must, be rolled after they arc own. I hey should be sown very care fully so that they will be evenly d'slrib Oted over tho land. Aineiicau Cultiva tor. Hashing Corn by Tlii-ashing. A New York correspondent of Conn try Gentleman who had 700 bushels of dry corn to husk engaged a man wl owns an ordinary grain separator and engine to do tho work. This did it to perfection, with the exception of crack ing the corn slightly; but that is no ob Joctiou if yon wish to feed it. It 11 seem that it requires considerable help to execute tho work, though eight men aro sufficient to thrash that quantil 7 in a day. But if you consider that at this operation you aro husking, shelling, fjet ling corn iu bam, also getting fodder in barn and all shredded, which is bettc than cutting it, us cattlo will cat it all np, yon will not fail to see a saving of labor and time also. It has Ihrashcd per fectly clean and has proved satisfactory, ALL SORTS Evx y iiimii h.i ly-rg' t hilimto mnke U'i I II leu l x for t e k I lil III hem.
