dato there were acres of pasturage and mead'
ow with hardly a single leaflet ot green grass
yet when the abundant rains canio, the brown
laudscapo changed to a rich grcon resembling
tbo freshness of Juno.
There has been no eitenslvo drought this
year. In tbo greater part of this state, as
well as In tlio country generally, there has
beeu plenty of rain from tbo beginning ot the
season through tbo whole period of tho growth
of most of tlio crops. Tho drought In Now
Kngland has prcTallid only in tho portion be
low Central Vermont and New Hampshire.
In Eastern Massachusetts It has been more
scvero than it was last year. A correspon
dent from Oxford county, Me., eayst "I had
no Idea that any patt of New England could
need ralu, wo wcro so abundantly favored
with It. From spring until August wo had
Just about rain enough. Tbo first week of

Alsiko clover is said to bo ono of tho best
honcy-yloldiug plants, and it Is often cultivat
ed by farmers who keep bees moro for the
honey than for tho hay that can bo made from
it. It is not generally considered equal to red
clover for tho amouut of hay that it jields.
Wo believe somo of our readers in this coun
ty havo uiado a pretty thorough trial of It,
and wo should bo pleased to publish tho re
sult of their ciperienco In The Fiiuimx if
they would furnish tho facts, ltufus Frinco
of South Turner, Me., has pro, Mi Alsiko on

the Mirror and Farmer that tlio homo of Al
siko clovtr "is upon land that is just tho op
posite of that upon which common red clover
flourishes. The red clover must havo a very
dry soil to flourish in for any length of lime,
but with Alsiko it must bo moist, Its homo
is tho nwalo and meadow, where it is ai tena
cious of lifo as (I almost said) tho bulrush.
Somo six years since I bowed some on a swale
that could not bo plowed except in the driest
part of tho season, and It is not all gone yet,
but flourished better than any other grass
sown at tho time ; aud from this and other
experiments I havo no hesitation in saying
that to seed very wet land it has no superior,
hut for laud that common red clover would
flourish ou it is valueless."

Trof. Henry E. Alvord, formerly of the
Massachusetts agricultural college but now in
charge of tho private experiment farm of Mr.
Valentino In Oraugo county, N. Y., has been
making experiments to test tho valuo of tnsi
lago as compared with dried corn-fodder. The
result of his experiments tends to prove, what
many chcaiints and scientific men havo claim
ed, that little or nothing is gained in tho nu
tritive valuo of tbo foddtr by preserving it in
u green state. A quantity of green corn fod
dcr was preserved in a silo, aud an equal quan
tity when green was dried. Both kinds were
fed to milch cows. Tho milk of tho cows fed
on tho dry fodder niado a littlo tho most but'
tcr. Tho cnsilago lasted a trifle longer, but
there was no material difference. The best
results were obtained by feeding about half
cnsilago with dry fodder and grain. I'rof.
Alvord seems to think that the quality of the
butter was rather improved when the cows
wero fed with cnsilago in connection with dry
fodder and grain. In niakiDg these experi
ments tho cnsilago alono and tho dry fodder
alono was fed alternately to the two sets of
cows, so that no difference in the animals
could affect the result.

So great has beeu tho positivo advantages
which all departments of agriculture have
derived from the construction of railroads,
that, if tho cntiro cost of their building had
been levied upon tho farmers of the central
west, they would have paid it aud been im
mensely the gainers. Tho railroads havo
done what could not have, been effected with
out them ; they havo secured to tho producer
very nearly tho prices of tho Atlantic mar
kets, and very lamely iu advance of what
could havo been had on his farm ; by thus
enabling tlio producer to Ulsposo of his prod
ucts at good prices ot all times, they havo
helped to increaso rapidly both the settle
ment and the annual production of tho inte
rior states. Tho older a country is, tho moro
clvio and tho less rural it becomes that is,
the greater will bo tho demand for food, and
the loss tho iiroiluction. Hence it is that Hu
lope, an old country, filled with cities, makes
a contmual demand on this country for food.
Hooco it is that New England aud Now York,
couliuually tilling up with manufacture, ar
tibaus and cities, must be sunnlicd with in
creased quantities of food from tho interior
west. Ileuoe it is that the cheapening of
trauspoitation inures to tho benefit of tho ag
ricultural producer. By thus giving tho far
mer the benefit of tho best markets, aud tho
highest prices, railroads hitvo increased tbo
agricultural productions of tho country be
yond any thing heretoforo known In tho
world. United SUitcs Economist.
True of the west and of tho country as a
whole j but New England agriculturo suffers
from western competiton, as it would not in
equal degree without the railroads. Yot oven
New England farmers would not abolish the
railroads if they could.
.Tloilorn Dairy Furmlng.
Modern dairy farming, says the Hon. Hi
ram Smith of Wisconsin, starts out with keep
ing one cow on four acres, and this Bhould be
tho password to every dairy lodge! "One
cow to four acres ;" and this should bo rap
Idly reduced until tho undoubted possibility
is reached of keeping one to every acre. One
of tho principles of modern dairy farming is
to have our cows give the most milk when
dairy goods aro at the highest price, which
is invariably In tho winter. It has been re
peatedly demonstrated that a good herd of
cows coming into milk lu Septombcr, Octo
ber and November, will, in the average, give
from 4. SOO to ti.OUO pounds of milk annually,
This milk is worth, to sell at a factory, or to
manufacture into butter or cheese, 1.80 per
100 pounds, or $S8.fiO as tho average for
each cow. Iu other words, dairy farming
with ouo cow to eight acres on ICO acres pro
duces $l,1i;o: modern dairyfarmingwith one
cow to four acres produces $2,(i(i0 an in
crcasoof rJl.f.OO; by un outlay of feed and
help, a net profit of ijlUO a sum sufficient
to raise tho prico of land from $M to 100
per aero. A fundamental condition of suc
cessful farming Is large crops of corn not
les than two acres of fodder and four acres
of field corn for every ten cows, or a total of
twenty-four acres for forty cows.
lawns because of Its nnsichtlr appearance,
but that Is a smalt matter, for it Is often cov
ered out ot tight most of tho winter. Mr.
Wuen to Top-Dress Lands. There Is a
difference of opinion among good farmers aB
to the best time to apply top-dressing to grata
lands. We liuVo known some to haul out the
coarso dressing and put It in heaps on the
land iu the fall aud then loave it unBpread all
wiuter, spreading the .;amo lu tho Bpring ; the
result would be so much grass that it would
fall down aud rot, while between there would
be but a slight increase of tbo crop. We
have tried this method and fully abandoned
it. Others haul out the dressing on the
grass lands in wiuter and spread it. This
works better thau thu other plan, but is not
the host way. We havo havo found by long
experienco that the better way is to put the
dressing ou in tho fall and spread it, if it bo
the stable or barnyard manure ; but if spe
cial fertilizer, then in tho spring. In this
way wo havo secured the be.t risults. Iu
the case of lawns, we recommend usiugsome
coarse dressing ouco in three or four years.
In this way the lawn may be kept in good
condition for many years. Wo know that
many object to tho use of coarse manuro on

The Iiawistou ' Mo.,) Journal tells how the
first creamery In Malno had lis origin. Tho
Recount will not bo without Interest to tho
farmers of this section :
After nit tbo talk aud nlaunlng at various
points last spring to start a cooperative but
ter making establishment ill Malno, it was
left for tho farmers of tho little town of
Wales to nulttlv no to work and mature their
plans, put them into exocutiou and turn ou
the steam, as it were, aud set the butter ma
chinery at work, and where the raw product
went iu in the mornlug it came out at night
the golden gilt-edged, justly accorded to be
tho poer of the nutty flavored product ot tbo
best private Jersey tiairy, And tnis is now it
happened that littlo Wales has oome in ahead
in starting a creamery. It so happened that
Mr. II. Jordan, a son of Wales, but an 18
years' sojourner In the West, four years of
whlcn were spent In successiuny operating
an Iowa creamery, last winter returned to his
native hills, and, while visiting among the
farmers, very naturally told them what ho
knew about buttor making on the cooperating
plan. I no Messrs. Jonathan Davis, isaao
Wittcrcll and Davis Maxwoll us prluio tuov

shores of Sabalis pond, aud varying tho laud

small town, furnished just tho sweetest feed
for the Jerseys composing tho private dairies
of their good farms. Tbcy said, "Several
other portions of Maine aro dlscussiug the
question of starting creameries ; let us build
one and go to work. The man Is here, urging
us to run it. I'll do so much," says one,
aud I'll do so much more," says another, and
tho wheels bogau to move, aud the result is a
neat, smoll factory erected, well patronized,
in successful operation aud satisfactory re
turns realized. That, in short, is how it began.
EQUIPMENT AND COST.
In the first place funds woro needed. How
shall they bo raised ? Form a company and
sell the sharcB at i'2r, each, aud each then be
allowed a vote in tho management. It was
done Tho amount of $14110 was raised, a
building put up, 2(1x32 feet, at a central loca
lion, where tho right facilities wcro afforded
for puro cold spring water with draiuago am
plo. Tho building is tightly boarded, papered
and clapboarded ou the outside, and sheathed
with planed matched boards insido through
out ; partitions double of the same. Now
for the fixtures.
"What do we want ?"
"A good supply of cold water from the hill
side spriug." It was furnished, and also with
it a convenient amouut of hoso to conduct it
to alt parts of tho buildiug whero wanted.
"Then wo want an engine to do our churn
ing." A uico littlo Ulster engine of five
horso power wns luckily procured, uoarly as
good as new, for less than i200. A new ouo

superintendent, say, "a tauk or vat for, cool

forthwith the thing was fashioned according
as western experience dictated a ziuc lined
box, some 8x4 feet, placd lu the churning
room. Next a churn, and that is a rectangu

capacity ot 100 pounds of butter at a churn

The next indispensable articles aro the Eu

of bIx gallons capacity, aud then tho gather
ing cans for gathering the cream, manufac
tured by tho Ironclad Can Company, each
holding 20 gallons. Tbeso cans aro provided
with a follower, which floats upon and rises
with the cream as turned into the can, and
prevents its agitation while being transported.
A cover is fastened upon the top of these cans.
and through tbo centre a tin tube two inches
In diameter communicates with too bottom of
tho can, through which the cream Is turned
by the ono gathering it. A can fits upon the
tubo and thus the can is filled without raising
the cover at all, and all dirt or dust is easily
First, upon tbo right as jou enter tho build

A bolt reaches across tho hallway aud operates
the churn in tho churning and cream room ou
the left. This is some 14x20 feet. Opening
from tho hall aud beyoud the engino room Is
the butter room, where the process of work
ing, salting, btauiping aud packing is done.
The temperature of this room is kept at
.about GO"" by tho use of ice, tho latter materi
al being ono of tho iudispensables in running
Now we havo seen the utensils and all tho
fixings and tho rooms whero they aro several
ly used, let us tako a look at the farmer's
home and seo what tho farmer's duties are.
CAKE 0F THE MILK.
Each patron provides himself with a cream
er of some make tho Cooley Is used here.
The milk as drawn from tho cows is set iu the
submerged cans, whero it remains 21 hours.
After the milk is set tbo farmer's duty
ceases. The man who gathers the cream
does the skimming, notes the number of
inches of cream, gives tho proper credit, de
posits It in the can aud passes on to the next
farm. At present thero ore JJO patrons keep,
iug 1."(S cows, extending over a rango of 7
miles. The cream is gathered every day and
churned, except Sundays. No Sabbath work
is done, but au extra churning is dono ou
Tuesday, which brings matters round right.
The cream on its arrival at the factory Is
turned into the cooling cans and then placed
iu the temporary vat, aud the water turned
on, which maintains a temperature of Is '.
Tho cream is allowed to stand until a certain
period of acidity is reached and tho tempera
ture made uniform to (JO. , when it is turned
into tho churn, Tho churniug occupies about
one hour, never less thau I.", minutes. After
tho butter has come aud just tlio right point
in granulation is reached, which requires
practice to determine, tho buttermilk is
drawn off through a tin tube, thence to a gut
ter, which deposits it iu a tank upon the out
side. At this stage tho butter is a honey
combed mas3, made up of grains about the
size of pearl tapioca.
As 60on as the buttermilk ceases to run,
puro water from the spriug is turned into the
cnurn until tlio butter is coverod, tho churn
given six or eight rovolutions and again
drained, when tho process is repeated. This
constitutes the washing, and removes all the
buttermilk, leaving tho product sweet and
beautiful in its nutty richnebs.
Tho churn is now turned alternately back
and forth by hand to lump tho mass and solid

IN THE BUTTER BOOM.
Here it is first weighed so ns to get the right
proportion of salt. About AO pounds are
placed in the worker, which kneads it, dis
placing what water and buttermilk may have
remained in it. The salt is now added,
seven-eights of an ounce to the pound. Hig
gins' Eureka ealt Is used. The salt Is sifted
on and worked in by tho worker. When the
salt is thoroughly incorporated with tho mass
of butter it is shovelled into nice, clean hand
made spruce tubs and allowed to stand until
the following day before being moulded iuto
bricks. This is doue with a lever press, which
leaves the butter iu square bricks each weigh
ing one pound. As it comes from tho press
It is received upon the spatula and placed up.

wrapped separately aud packed in tho tubs or
rectougular tin boxeB, the former of CO pounds
capacity, tho latter about DO.
A settlement was made at tho close ot July,
after the factory had been in operation a
month and six days, the product footing up
:I800 pounds, being a little over 100 pounds a
day. The cost of making is about 4 J cents,
paying tho patrons a fraction over ID cents a
pound. The product of the croamery Is all
marketed iu Lewiston and Bath, and finds
speedy Bale, and is growing in favor with con
sumers every day. The domand for this but
ter is Buch that, wero the capacity for pro
ductiou increasod two or tbrco fold, it would
find ready sale.
A li'Mon In Ilurse. JrlunuireiHKiii.
Young man, I see you are about to take a
drive this mornlug, and will offer you some
advice. Your horso Is restive and wants to be
off beforo you aro ready j you may as well
break him of that now as at any other time,
and hereafter you will find It has been a half
hour well epent. Just give me the reins while
you put your foot on the step as If to get in )
tho horse makes a move to go ; I tighten the
reins and say "whoa." Now put your foot on
tho step again ; the horse makes another
move ; I hold the reins and speak to him
again. The horse is getting excited. Fat him
a little nn the neck and speak to him sooth
ingly. Put your foot on the step again, and
repeat this process until the horse will stand
still for you to get in, adjust yourself iu your
soat, and tell him to go. A very few lessons
will train him bo that ho will always wait for
orders before storting,
Now, as your horse has just beeu fed, drive
hlui at a very gentle pace for the first two or
three miles, until he warms up and his body
becomes lighter. Hut, beforo you start, let
me show you how to hold the reins. Take
them In your left baud, have them ot equal
length from the bit aud to cross each other in
your hand, the off aide one resting on your
first finger, tho other on the fourth figor, tho
back of the hand upward. Now, In guiding
the horse, you have only to use the wrist
joint, which will direct him cither right or
left, as you wish. Keep your hand steady,
with a gentlo prcssuro ou tho bit no Jerking
or Bwltchlng of the reins. If moro spoed is
wanted, take the whip In yourrlRht hand, to
bo gently used lor that purpose bo careful
not to apply It any harder than Is nooessary to
bring hlui up to tho required speed.
Speak to him soothingly, and Intimate In
the most geutle manner what you want him
to do, and ho will try to do it. Ho noble an
animal should not bo handled roughly nor
When vou return, havo tho harness remov

wisp ot straw or hay, Glvo him n littlo straw
or hay, but let blm cool off beforo he Is fed
or watered. Evory one who handles ahorse,
or has anything to do with one, should in the
first placo cultivate his acquaintance) let him
know that you aro his friend, and prove it to
him by your kind troatmcnt; bo uoeds this
to luspiro confidence, and when that is gained
be is your humble servant.
If your horse gets frightened at any uuusu
al sight or noise, do not whip him If you do
ho will connect the whipping with tho object
that alarmod him, aud be afraid of it ever af
ter. If ho merely shies at an object, give him
time to cxamlno it, which, with somo encour

him to pass it. You get frightened, too, houio

Tho present season has beon remarkably

Tho enormous watermelons that como from

Six years ago tho Bugar product of San Do-
mingo was 2,000,000 potiuds; this year It

American capital and enterprise.
A farmer in Herkimer county, N. i., raisos
his best potatoes on a soil consisting entirely
of puro sand. Ho enriches with plenty of
barnyard manuro and plants six or eight
inches deep. Ilia crops aro sure and excel
lent. Au Australian sheep-breeder recently pur
chased 17:1 merino sheep in this state, for
which ho paid tho Bum of t:lO,lHHl. Four of
the rams cost $2000 each. . The freight to
Australia will amount to nearly ifiOOO more,
which increases the sum to $.1i;,000, or about
an averogo of $200 per sheep. Tho breeder
already has a flock of !i2,0U0, and tho Ver
mout bheep will be used for purposes of im
provement. The American Cultivator reminds us that
no practice at this titneot the year will save
moro work to orchardlst or small-fruit grow
er, next wiuter or spring, than that of pinch
ing off "hUckers" or "water sprouts." A
simple brushing ot tho hand over a limb will
often destroy scores of little sprouts which
would havo to bo removed with a knife or
saw at the end of the year. Undesirable
shoots from tho roots of currant bushes or
other plants can bo moro easily removed now
than at any other time.
I'rof. A. J. Cook says that as l'yrethrum
(Fersian powder) is safo and effectivo against
tho cabbago caterpillars, the nrsenltcs (Paris
green, London purple, etc ) ehould never be
used. Aud with so good a specific as whito
helleboro at command, the arseultes should
never be used to fight the curraut slug,
which havo to bo attacked at thu very time
when wo wish to usu the fruit.
When caltlo chew leather, wood and old
bones, remember that it indicates a lack of
phosphate of lime iu their food, which is re
quired to supply bouu matirial. A toaspoon
ful of bone meal given daily with their grain
will cornet the habit aud supply the deficien
cy which induces it. If the disposition to cat
bones is indulged in whuu cows are in grass,
tho eteficieucy then ovideutly exists iu the
soil, and the pasture will bo greatly benefited
by a top ilressiug of bone-etust. Two or
three hundred pounds to tho acre, sown
broadcast will repay attending expouscs iu a
better yield aud in quality of milk and but
ter. Tho richest New York farmers, according
to tbo Heiald, are those who havo grown ber
ries and havo addeel every year au acre or
two to their pear orchards ; aud tho most
profitable farms ot all aro those within a fow
miles of the city, whose managers bank con
siderable money yeirly from the sale of veg
etables grown on u few acres that are hired
at reutals sometimes reaching $300 per aero
per annum. One man who bought au up

Thu undecayed muck and vegetable matter
in swamps and bogs will often remain in au
untillable conditiou for two or three years.
Tho vegetablo matter does not rot. This is
duo to the presence of vegetablo acids which
delay decomposition. If the material be made
alkaline it will decay speedily. Tho best sub
btancu for this purpose is quick lime. Forty
or fifty bushels to tho acre, or oven moro,
will reduce some bogs to arable soil iu a short
time. If straw is to bo us-d as manure it is
best adapted to the purpose by bprcading tho
ground where tho slazk is to bo built with
quick-lime. Tho stack will soon rot down.
It might also be advisable to spread a very
littlo lime over the straw at intervals, as the
stack is built up.

great valuo of cheese as an article of diet may
be belter understood by comparing its com
position with other articles of food, says a
writer in the Troy Times. Johnson, In that
admirablo book, "The Chemistry of Common
Life," gives the following tublo showing the
comparative values of:
New milk Lean Wheat
cheese. beef. bread.
Water, 38 7r, 13
Casein (fibrin), 2U lil (i
Fat, 30 3 1
Starch, ash, Ac, 4j 3 48
Total, 100 100 100
It will bo bccu that, so far as fat is concerned,
boef has tbreo times as much as bread, and
cheese 10 times as much as beef, and so far
as inuuclo. forming constituents aro concerned,
boef is tbreo times as valuable as bread, and
cheese once and a half as nutritious as boef.
Tbe great defect in cheeso as food is that
there is not any starch in it. This defect is
remedied by using it in connection with
bread, an article which abounds in starch.
