practice of excluding chickens from
the garden, especially in mid-summer,
is bad both for the chickens and for
the vegetables. The young chicks
will not thrive in confinement, as in
freedom, and the growing plants are
in a good measure protected from in
sects by the chickens. We have never
succeeded better with young broods
than by putting them, with the moth
er, in the vegetable garden. The
mother is kept confined in a coop, and
the chickens have free access to her
through the slats. She follows her in
stinct in scratching over the ground
under the coop for worms and grubs,
and after a lew days the coop is pushed
along to new soil. The chickens are
regularly fed with scalded meal, or
boiled screenings; they supply them
selves with animal food from the gar
den. The chickens are too small to do
any harm to plants that are .well star
ted, and yet they pick up an immense
number of Insects. The more highly
tlie garden is manured, the more ra
pidly do insects multiply, and the
greater is the need of birds and fowls
10 keep them in check. The chickens
can go beneath cucumbers, squashes,
beans, tomatoes, etc., and pick the eggs
and worms from the uuderside of the
leaves, where they are generally found.
They eagerly chase every moth and bug
that files, and if one alights wltliiu
striking distance, it is sure to be de
voured. When the chickens are large
enough to do injury to Ihe plants,
they are easily removed to other quar
The practice of distorting trees, shrubs
and climbers into various stiff and
grotesque forms, instead of allowing
them to grow in their natural and
gracelul beauty, cannot well be re
garded as much ot an improvement,
both kinds ot distortion are to be ob
jected to, namely, by artificial means
purposely, and by allowing the trees
or shrubs to became distorted by unna
tural and one sided crowding. James
Vickgives an illustration in his Month
ly, expressive of his opinion of at
tempts at "improvements" of the kind.
He states that at the time, many years
ago, that several eminent English offi
cials were present to witness the ope
ration of Perkiu's famous steam-gun,
opinions were freely expressed of its
merits, but Wellington said nothing.
When urged to give his oplnieu, he
rnerel}' replied that he had beeu think
ing "that this steam-gun had been the
first invented, what a grand iinprov
ment on it gunpowder would have
been !" And if a tree or shrub origi
nally grew in the form of a stiff cone,
or a peacock, or a statue, what a grand

RY. —Wherever the cranberry has been
successfully introduced it has proved
itself one ot the most valuable of our
small fruits, having the advantage
over all others in its adaptability of
beiug kept for so much greater length
of time. It is most profitably cultiva
ted ou low, moist, level lauds, where
drainage as well as overflowing can be
applied, as circumstances may require.
Yet, like many other plants, it may be
gi-vwn |sucoesstully under conditions
very different Irom those in which it
is found in its wild state. Any loamy
naturally moist garden soil will grow
cranberries. The plants are set out
and cultivated exactly like strawber
ries, until the vines have covered the
entire ground, when no other care is
necessary than to pull out the tall
weeds. An occassional light dressing
of fine swamp muck or sawdust is
very beneficial and keeps the ground
moist. A small beginning in cranber
ry culture may even be made in a fiow
er pot. Plants grown in this way are
not only highly ornamental, the ir.ults
hanging on the vines until the blos
soms appear for the next crop, but also
astonishingly productive.
How TO TEST DAIRY Cows. —There
is no difficulty in establishing the cha
racter and value of each cow in a dai-.
ry. The method usually followed is
to weigh each cow's milk upon a spring
scale as soon as it is drawn and before
it is poured out of the pail into the
general receptacle. The weight is no
ted down on a slate or board under the
cow's name and against the date. One
week's trial is sufficient for each month
so as to get a fair average through the
year. For a butter test each cow's
milk may be set seperately in pans of
different size or form from the others
and churned by itself; this will give
the yield of butter for a certain quanti
ty of milk. Generally when one
gins a habit of keeping accounts in the'
dairy in this way it is continued and is
found a valuable help in making a
dairy prcfiatbie, for it is a check on
feeding, watering and otherwise car
ing for the cows and when a falling off
or increase is noticed Immediately be
comes anxious to find the cause of it,
and thus much valuable information is
PLOWING.— There are two kinds of
soil on every man's farm—the agricul
tural soil and the subsoil. The agri
cultural soil may be two Inches deep
or it may be nine, but it Is not twenty
feet. It is not deeper than the air can
penetrate. *lf the agricultural soil is
too shallow it may be gradually deep
ened by lifting an inch of the eubsoil
at each plowing, bringing it up to the
air and enriching it with manure.
Says Professor Stockbridge: Our agri
cultural society committees, by their
premiums for smooth, shiny fiat fur
rows have done the community great
harm. Such as often takes the premi
ums is the very poorest kind ol plow
ing. The soil is best plowed when it
is most the roughly crushed, twisted
and broken with the sod .well covered.
On some kind of lands I would have
furrows lapped an inch, as the Cana
dian farmers plow. Let the air and
water have a chance to circulate un
derneath the surface. Light lands,
however, should have a flat furrow if
we wish to make such lands more com

good housewife kuows chat an iron ket
tle used for heating water that holds
lime in solution, will in a short time
become coated with that substance.
This being a poor conductor of heat,it
will of course take a longer time to
heat the water when the kettle is
new. Copper or tin vessels do not be
come coated with lime. The reason is
that Iron has an affinity for lime which
the other metals have not. But this
affinity can be overcome by coating the
inner surface of the vessel with a com
pound ol tauicaciu and iron, which is
soluble in water and will not 'precipi
tate lime. This is easily done. Take
a new tea kettle and put a handful of
oak bark into it, fill with water, and
keep it boiling for throe or four hours,
till it up from time to time as the wa
ter boils away. The iron will get a Jet
black coat of tannite of iron and will
be proof against lime. Care must be
taken that the kettle does not boil dry
and become heated to redness. A heat
a little below that point will destroy
the coating. If the lime can be fully
removed from an old tea kettle, it can
be coated in the same manner as a new
one, but will require a longer time,
and perhaps it will be necessary to re
peat the boiling two or three times.
