PRESERVING FODDER. —Recent careful
investigations have proved that a mere
drying of our common fodder crops, as
grass, clover and oilier leguminous plants,
does not affect their digestibility; the green
fodder and dry fodder, or hay,representing
in each case the entire vegetable substance
from the same plant in the same stage of
growth, have shown when fed a correspond
ing rate of assimilation of their substance.
Whenever, therefore, the production of
dry fodder (nay) can be carried on in a
short time, and in a satisfactory manner,
tue largest amount of dry fodder of the
highest attainable feeding value may be
secured fron that plant, and no other
current mode of preserving fodder can
equal it as far as quantity is concerned.
Although admitting tlie fact that the siio
system of keeping fodder is. iu a high de
gree, liable to cause a waste ot much v. 1
uable nutritive constituents, iu consequence
of an inherent serious feature—fermenta
tion - it cannot be denied that its applica
linn for the preservation of green corn
fodder has also some special strong points
and redeeming features in its . avor, name
ly: The Indian corn is one of our most
leliable crops. The oorn crop furnishes a
large amount of vegetable matter (20 to 25
tons per acre, with from 16 to 24 per cent,
of dry matter, or from five to six tons of
stover, containing 76 per cent, of dry mat
ter). It presents peculiar difficulties to
cure well iu the field; and the corn ensilage
is highly relished by ail kinds of stock and
without any loss by refuse u atter con
sumed by catt'e. When we consider
in additiouto these exceptional advautages
wkich the introduction oi the silos into our
home farm management promises to secure
for us-that the discussion of the feeding
value of the corn e silage cannot other
wise but direct the attention of the eutire
farmiug community towards a careful iu
vestigation of the wnoie fodder question,
it becomes most desirable that the financial
siue of the ensilage production shoald re
ceive the most caiefui practical invest iga
tion on the part of the larmer.
WUNG CHICKENS AND INSECTS. — The
practice of exciudiug chickens from the
garden, especially IU mid-summer, is bad
both for the chickens aud for the vegeta
bles. The youug chickens will not thrive
in confinement, as in freedom, and the
growing plants are in a good measure pro
tected from insects by the chickens. We
have never succeeded better with youug
broods than by putting them, with the
mother in the vegetable garden. The
mother is kept confined in a coop, aud the
chickens have free access to her. through
the sluts, bhe follows her instincts in
scratching over the ground uuder the coop
for worms and grubs and after a few days
the coop is pushed along to ntw soiL The
chickens are regularly fed with scalded
meal* or scie. mugs; they supply themselves
with animal food from the garden. The
chickens are too small to do auy harm to
plauts that are well started, aud yet pick
up au immense number of insects. The
more highly a garden is manured the more
rapidly ao insects multiply and the greater
is the need of birds and fowls to keep them
m check. The chickens can go beneatn
cucumbers, squashes, Leans, tomatoes, etc.
and pick the eggs and worms from the
under side of the leaves, where they are
generally ioumL They eagerly chase every
moth and bug that hies; if one alights
within striking distance it is sure to be de
voured. When the chickens are large
enough to do injury to the plauts they are
easily removed to other quarters.
MEN talk of 20,000 and 50,000 acres ot
land without any realization of the extent
of such an acreage. I visited the other
day a ranch of 20,U00 acres. I intended
to make a thorough survey of it-thai is, to
ride round it and ride across it. 1 made
my survey, but when 1 learned that the
fence which enclosed it was over seventy
miles iu length I concluded that I would
inspect it by sections, i aid considerable
riding in two days, nevertheless, but 1
diden't ride around it. Un the ranch there
were 1600 acres all under the plough, one
bit of land nearly as level as a floor, a
paralellogram in shape, and the furrow
the plow cut in traversing from one end
to the other was three miles in a straight
line. It is only after one hbs visited such
an estate and devoted days in riding over
it that he realizes what are 20,000 acrws.
CHOOSING A. COW. —The crumply born
is a good indication; a full eye another.
Her head should be smali and short. A
void the Roman nose; this indicates thiu
milk, and but little of it. See that she is
dished in the face, sunk between the e>es.
Notice that she is what stock men call a
handler-soft skin and loose like the skin of
a bag. l)eep from the loin to the udder,
and a very small tail. A cow with these
marks never fails to be a good milker.
There is more difference in cows than is
usually supposed, aud but few really good
cows are offered in our markets. If a farm
er has a '\No. 1 article," he wont sell her
unless obliged to do so.
THERE are as many as 4,000 known
species of grasses distributed over the
world, and there is not a Boil to which
some of them is not indigenous Some
grow best on dry, sterile soils, others on
rich land, some thriving best in marches,
and wet places, and some on the sea coast.
Those that are best suited for permanent
pasture thrive in luxuriance under cultiva
tion. and are somewnat limited in number
compared with the entire species.
FEEDING BY SOILING. —It is doing fairly
to feed one cow on two acres by means of
soiling. A common cow may be expected
to produce 150 pounds of butter iu a year;
a good cow may yield 250 pouuds. The
product is increased 2o to 50 per cent, by
soiling and high feeding, because it is
made more regular aud the milk is more
abundant and richer. The best feed for
•milk and butter is coarse middlings and
CLOVER HAY FOB HORSES. —CIover hay
is always dusty; the leaves break up into
light fragments, and the dust is breathed
by the horse and injures the lungs. Be
sides, the clover has an unfavorable effect
upon the digestion of a horse, so that ripe
timothy is preferred by horsemen. Tim
othy cut before it is ripe is dusty from the
pollen of the blossom, and the dust is in
NEVER feed decayed roots of any kind
to cows giviug milk. One decayed turnip
fed to a cow would effect the milk ot fifty
cows if mixed together.
THE roots of the grasses in good pasture
will weigh from five to ten tons.
The construction of a ship canal connect
ing Lake Erie and the Ohio river is being
seriously entertained. Two possible rouies
are described by Major John M. Wilson,
United States engineer, the first way of the
Erie and Wabash Canal to the navigable
waters of the W abasn river, which would
then make the connection through to the
Ohio; the second by the Miami and Erie
Canal, which joins the Wabash and Erie
Canal, 10$ miles south of ifefiance, thus
connecting Toledo and the lake with the
Ohio river. The cost of either route is es
timated at more than $25,000,000.
WHOOPING COUGH. —Whooping cough,
called Pertussis by physiciaus, is said to
be owing to the presence ot bacteria under
the root of the tongue. The cough is so
urgent that the breath becomes exhausted,
and, in the effort to draw iu the needed
air, the top of the windpipe seems to nearly
close, causing the whooping sound. The
old plan was to let the disease ruu its
course, beiug careful that the symptoms
were not aggravated by cold. Certain med
icines seeui to act favorably in some cases,
and in others to have no noticeable effect.
The following have been recommended;
The fluid extract of hyoscyaiuu.% from one
to four drops, depending on the age of the
patient. A blister to back ot neck. Fric
lions to the spine twice a day, with onion
juice. Beat a fresh egg in a piut of vin
egar and add half a pound of loaf sugar ;
take two tablespoon! uls every four hours.
The best treatment for the cure of whoop
ing cough that has yet been discovered
undoubtedly is to expose the pa ients to the
vapors arising from the purifying boxes iu
gas works. But it is not always convenient
for the patient to visit these places ; and it
has been found to answer just as well to
procure some of the liquid hydro carbon
mat is always found at the bottom of the
purifying boxes, and vaporize this iu a
metal dish in the closed room of the little
patient. It almost always affords imme
diate relief, and the whooping will not re
turn for hours. This liquid can be obtained
at any gas works at little or no cost, and
no expenses need be incurred tor vaporiz
ers. A tablespoouful or more may be
evaporated at a time, and repeated once a
day or A large iron spoon makes
a good evaporating dish. It may be held
over the flame of a lamp, or a coal shovel
may be heated and the liquid poured into
it and allowed to evaporate in the lo.mi of
the patieu'. This treatment would prob
ably be bcuefici&l in the throat and lung

How TO DETECT ADULTERATED COUPEE -
Ground coffee affords a a field for adultera
tion, and for this purp. se chicory, carrots,
caramel, date seeds, etc., are the substan
ces most commonly used. Take a little of
the coffee and press it between the fingers,
or give it a squeeze in the paper in which
it is brought; if genuine it will not form a
coheient mass, as coffee grains are Lard aud
do not readily adhere to each other ; but if
the giaitis stick to each other; and form a
sort of ' cake," we may be pretty sure of
adulU ration in the slmpe of chicory, for
the eraius of chicory are s< fer and more
open, and adhere without d.ftlculty when
squeezed. Again, if we place a few grains
in a sauc r and im isteu ihem with a little
cold water, chicory will ve y quickly be
come soft like breadcrumbs, while coffee
will take a long time to sol ten. A third
test; take a wine-glass or a tumblerful of
water aud gently drop a pinch of ground
coffee on the surface ot" the water without
ftirring or agitating; genuine coffee will
tloat for some time, while chicory or any
oiher soft root will soon siuk, ami chicory
or caramel will cause a yellowish ( r brown
ish color to diffuse rapidly through the
water, while pure coffee will give no sen
sible tint under such circumstaues for a
considerable length of time. "Coffee
mixtures" or "coffee improvers ' should be
avoided. They seldom consist of anything
hut chicory and caramel.
SAVE TIIK OI.D PAPER — Never throw
away old paper, if you have no wish to
sell it, use it in the house. Some house
keepers prefer it to cloth for cleaning
many articles of furniture. For an instance,
a voluinn, written by a lady who prided
herself on her experience and tact says,
"After a stove had been blackened, it can
be kept looking very well for a long time
by rubbing it with paper every morning
Rubbing with pap°r is a much nicer way of
keeping the out side of a tea-ketile. coffee
pot and tea-pot bright and e'ean than the
old way of washing them in SUMS Rubbing
with paper is also the best way of polishing
kuives, tinware and spoons; they shine
like silver. For pol siting mirrors, win.
dows. lamps, etc., paper is better than dry
cloth. Preserves and pickles keep much
better if brown paper instead of cloth, it
tied over the jar. Canned fiu t is not so
apt to mold it a piece of writing paper, cut
to tit the can, is laid direcily on the fruit.
Paper is much better to put under a carpet
than straw. It is warmer, thinner, and
makes less noise w hen one walks over it.
