SELECTING SEED CORN.— The yield
of corn is very great'y reduced in
many fields every season by the poor
quality ot seed that is planted. Seed
that was immature, or which was in
jured during or after the curing pro
cess, was planted, and much of it fail
ed to germinate. After waiting seve
ral days for sprouts to appear above
ground, the farmer ascertains that
entire the seed has rotted, The
length of the growing season in
the Northern States is ordinarily re
quired to produoe a good crop ot sound
corn. If planting is delayed ten or
twelve days alter the usual time, the
prospect is that the crop will be in
jured, if it is not entirely destroyed,
by an early frost,
If one is assured of a good crop from
corn that is planted late, the trouble of
cultivation is very greatly increased.
When good seed is planteu on land
freshly prepared it will come up quick
ly, and deep in advance ot the weeds.
Cultivation will, ot course, be neces
earry,but it may with safety be delayed
till the young corn is sufficiently high
to mark the rows. If it is necessary to
replant however, the weeds will be in
possession of the soil, not only before
the corn is up, butbelore it is planted.
To haye a clear field under such cir
cumstances will require almost con
stant labor throughout the season. It
is difficult to fight weeds that have ob
tained the start of cultivated crops.
In case part of the eorn germinated
and part does not the situation is not
much better. Considerable work is
required to replant seed, and as it will
not come up till after that first planted
has made considerable growth, extra
work will be required in cultivation
during the entire season. Whatever
be the character of the season,the coru
will not mature at the same time, and
the chances are that the portiou last
planted will not ripen before early
trusts occur. It Is the practice of some
farmers to replant "missing hills"
with seed of some early variety, so
that the two kinds may ripen at about
the same time. .Securing a uniform
pericd oi ripening, however, dees not
secure a uniform lot of corn. It will
be a mixed lot which will rank low in
The first essential tc success in corn
raising is good seed. If a farmer has
a good variety of corn, and it has at
tained a fair growth and become ma
ture on the stalk, he can, by taking
sufficient pains, secure reliable for
planting. He should select only the
best ears for this purpose. He can
make a much better selection when
the stalks are standing on the hill
where they grow than after they are
cut up and put in shock. All but two
or thiee husks should be removed from
each ear, when thoy should be braid
ed together and hung in some airy
place to dry. An equally good plan
consists in tying the ears in pairs and
haDgiDg them over a wire suspended
in a chamber or some outbuilding,
where they w ill he protected from the
rain or snow.
If a farmer nas not a first class va
riety of corn or has not raised a good
crop on acconnt of a bad season, defi
cient cultivation or poor soil, he should
procure his seed from some person
who has secured a superior crop. It
is generally better to procure a supply
in the fall than in the spring, as the
price villi be likely to be lower. No
crop is more dependent on the quality
01 the seed than corn. In this case of
small grains it is very difficult to se
lect individual kernels to sow. Most
persons object to hand picking beans
and peas with a view of selecting choice
specimens for planting. It is compa
ratively easy, however, to select not
oniy ears but the kernels of corn for
planting, as the amount of seed re
quired for an acre is comparatively
£ EGGS are limed by packing them in
a liquid made as follows: A peck of
fresh lime is slaked in sufficient water
to make & thin paste. When thor
oughly slaked, which will require
twenty four hours, water is added to
thin it so that it can be strained
through a fine sieve into a clean bar
rel, which is then filled with water,
when the eggs, perfectly fresh, are
laid carefully into kegs of barrels, and
the stirred lime liquor is poured over
them, a board being floated on the top
to keep the eggs under the surface. In
this way the eggs may be kept six
ONE great object in feeding animals
should be to enrich the land, hence it
becomes of the greatest importance to
know what lood can be produced that
will injure the land in the least, and
enrich the manure heap the most.
DRAINAGE improves the texture of
the soil because it renders it mellow
Every one knows that a glass gives a
graver sound on being struck when
containing water than when empty.
The relations of this class of pheno
mena have been studied by M. Montig
ny, who got eleven bells belonging to
the chime of an old clock and compar
ed their tones when merely filled with
liquids, or when immersed in liquids,
with those they give in air. He tried
different liquids, viz.: water, alcohol,
ether, and sulphide of carbon. He
found that, however the liquid was ap
plied. the sound given in contact with
it was always graver than the natural;
that the lowering ol tone was more
marked the denser the liquid (thus it
was less wtih ether than with sulphide
of carbon); also more marked, what
ever the liquid, when the bell was com
pletely Immersed than when it was
merely filled; and that, with either
mode of application, the lowering wa9
greater Jor grave than acute notes.
The additional fact that the lowering
of tone when a bell is merely filled
with a liquid and that whieh occurs
when, being empty, it is immersed in
the liquid up to its lip, are exactly the
same, shows that the alteration is due
to the influence which that part of the
liquid in contact with the metal has on
the vibrations of the latter (not to say
metal and liquid forming a vibrating
whole.) Further, the compressibility
of the liquid is a factor In the result.
Water is both less compressible and
more dense than alcohol and ether, and
it lowers the tone more. The result is
also a fleeted by the form of the bell
and the elasticity and density of its
Bubstance. it is obvious, lastly, that a
chime which presents a perfect gamut
in air no longer does so when in con
tact with liquid.
The Royal Engineers have tried the
effeet of gun cotton bringing down two
old chimneys at the Dockyard Exten
sion Works, Chatham, England. The
first was demolished by placing a neck
lace of gun cotton inside the chimney,
the total charge consisting of about
four and a half pounds. The second
was destroyed by placing sx charges
of the expiosive in the centre of the
base of ihe chimney, the total charge
weighing 28 ounces. The experiment
was very successful. At the instant
the electric spark ignited the gun cot

EASY HOUSEKEEPING NOW-A-DAYI.—
A couple may set up for tthemselves
with very few utensils, scarcely - any
provisions, and next to no knowledge
of cookery. A gas or oil stove takes
the place of a costly and cumbrous
cooking range. Coffee is not only
parched but ground. Spices and pep
per cooie all prepared for nse. Every
kind of bread, cake and pastry can be
purchased at. a slight advance on the
cost of the material they contain . If
one wishes the sport of making them
self-raising ftour mav be had at any
grocery. Fruit of all kinds, all ready
for the table, can be purchased about
as cheaply as that which must be pre
pared. Not only lobster and shell
fish, but salmon may be bought cook
ed and ready to be served at a price
little above what the crude articles
cost; and cooked corned beef, tongue,
pigs' feet and ham have long been In
the market. There are also canned
soups, that only need to be diluted;
mince meat, all ready to be put be
tween pie crusts; and roast meats and
fowls ot all descriptions. Some gro
cers Heep mush prepared for frying.
Bostou baked beans, put up in cans,
have had a great run during the past
lew years. English plum pudding is
also upon the market. Fried pota
toes are an.article of commerce. Cans
of eooked green corn, beans, peas, to
matoes, cauliflower and asparagus are
found on the shelves of every corner
grocery. It is no longer neoessary to
have a cook, or to ho a cook, in order
to keep house. It requires soarcely
auy cooking utensils to provide a warm
meal. A can opener, a trying pan aud
a coffee pot are the principal requi
sites. Lven the last is not absolutely
neoessary, since a mixture of prepared
coffee, sugar aud cream can readily be
obtained. It is eveu practical, now,
lor the novice to dispense with a cook
book, as the label on every can tells
how to treat the contents.
A GOOD AND CHEAP WHITEWASH. —
Few people know how easily whit#
wash is made and how valuable it is
when properly applied. It not only
prevents the decay of wood, bat is
greatly conducive to the healthful
ness ol buildings, whether wood or
stone. Out buildings and fences,when
not painted, should be supplied once
or twice a year with a good coat of
whitewash, which should be prepared
in the following way : Take a clean,
water-tight barrel or other suitable
cask, and put Into it about hall a
bushel of lime; slack it by pouring
water over it, boiling hot, and put ia
a sufficient quantity of water to coyer
it live inches deep, and stir it briskly
till thoroughly slackened; when the
slackening has been thoroughly effect
ed, dissolve it in water, and add two
pounds of sulphate of ziuc and com
mon salt. These will cause the wash
to harden, and prevent the cracking,
which gives an unseemly appearance
to the work. If desirable, a beautiful
cream color may be given to tue above
wash by adding thr*e pounds of yel
low ochre; or a good pearl by lead,
lamp, vine or ivy black. For lawn
color, add lour pounds of umber, Tur
kish or American —the latter is the
cheapest—oue pound of Indian red,
one pound of common lampblack.
AN Inquirer wants to know how to
grow rhubarb, or pie-plant. This is
easy information to furnish. In fact,
rhubarb is so readily grown and kept
growing in the same bed for so many
years, that no one who has even a mite
of a garden should be without a little
bed of it. It Is really the "pie-plant,"
as it is the fir?t thing to grow in the
garden that a pie can be made of, and
hence comes very acceptably. As a
sauce, too,or side-dish, it is excellent.
Ir is easiest grown from the roots,
which ail seed-stores have lor sale,
and it comes a year earlier. Seed,
however, can be sown in the early
spring, and when once taken'tirm root
thin out to about three feet square. In
nrter years, when the stalks not cut
off for use show signs ot going to seed,
cut off ihe tops. We have a small bed
that has supplied us year after year

SODA FOR BURNS. —All kinds of
burns, including scalds and sunburns,
are almost immediately relieved by
the application of a solution of soda
to the burnt surface. It must De re
membered that dry soda will not do
unless it is surrounded with a cloth
moist enough to dissolve it. This
method of sprinkling it on and cover
ing it with a wet cloth is often the
very best. But it is sufficint to wash
the wound repeatedly with a strong
solution. It would be well to keep a
bot.le of it always on hand, made so
strong that more or less settles on the
bottom. This is what is called a satu
rated solution, and really such a solu
tion as this is formed when the dry
soda is sprinkled on and covered with
& moistened cloth. It is thought by
some that (he pain of a burn is caused
by the hardening of the albumen of
the flesh which presses on the nerves,
and that the soda dissolves the albu
men and relieves the pressure. Others
think that the burn generates an acrid
acid, which the soda neutralizes.
CARVING KNIFE EXECUTION.— Here
is my method of beheading fowls:
Hold the bird in the right hand, by
the legs and tips of the wings; grasp
its neck with the left band, close to
the body, and lav its head on the
block; let an assistant place a carving
knife upon its neck and give ita couple
of blows with a mallet; then slide the
left hand down toward the end of the
neck, and hold it with the left hand
until it ceases to struggle—not too
tightly, but so that it will bleed free
ly. The advantage of this method is
that it prevents the fowl from flopping
around and getting the feathers ail
bloody and soiled, and it can throw no
blood upon the operator.
To remove ink stains from printed
books, procure a cent's worth of oxalic
acid,which dissolve in a small quantity
of warm water, then slightly wet the
stain with it, when It will disap
pear, leaving the leaf uninjured. The
oxalic acid must be handled carefully,
as it is a deadly poison.
