WATCH THE SEEDS. — Just at this time,
when it is necessary to have the seeds in
tne plant-bed sprout quickly, the watering
pot is fieuuently used. This should not
he done except in cases of necessity, as
t here is almost always more or less of im
perceptible moisture in the earth which is
sufficient for the very small seeds, such as
cabbage, lettuce, etc. The greatest danger
io these seeds is in the baking of the soil,
which will assuredly occur if the watering
pot is used, espacially if the soil contains
much clay. To avoid this difficulty the
seeds should be planted in the beds the
short way, so that the gardener can reach
everv portion of them with a rake trorn the
walk way. Plant all seeds in little rows
about eight inches apart, and then stick a
sprig at each end and one in the centre. It
can be noticed that always atter a warm
day the surface is baked. This is the
cause of more seed failures than any other
thing, as the seeds perish before they can
get through. Successive applications of
water simply makes the crust harder. Wa
ter the plants every alternate evening, it
necessary, and on the evenings after each
wateiiog, rake the bed over with a sharp
toothed rake (one with a tooth out in the
middle is preferable), following the direc
tion of the rows, wbch may be discerned
by the sprigs placeu there for the purpose.
1 hie process loosens the soil, prevents the
formation of hard crust, admits air, water
ar.d warmth, and facilitates the growth of
tie young plants. After they are through
the ground it is time to give them a slight
FARMING ON CLAY LAND.— Very favor
able reports have recently been published
in England of the profits of farming o n
land tliat was essentially compact clay, in
some cases what passed for soil hHd been
used for making brick. 1 hough owned by
individuals, it had been put to no agricul
tural use since the settlement of the coun
try by civilized men. By judicious man
agement it has been converted into valu
able propeity. Considerable money was
expended on it without any returns. Sur
face and underground drains were matte
to carry off water and cause the air to cir
culate through tie hard earth. Repeated
plowings were resorted to for the purpoee
of pulvtnzing the compact ground. Care
was taken to expose the soil to the action
of Ihe flost aid air as much as possible.
The 1 rst ciops raised were for the purpose
of turning under for lertilizera. In some
cases two crops were raised for this purpose
in a single year. They benefited the land
mechanically as well as chemically by
making it loose. Having been treated in
this way it was found to be productive of
large crops of grass and clover. Recently
wheat, barley and peas have been applied
to them. In this respect they prereut a
remarkable contrast to lands that wire
originally rich and fertile. It is admitted
that it will not be profitable for tenants to
undeitake to improve hard clay land, but
it is believed that many landlords will set
about making unpioductive land profitable
and in that way adding to the extent of
their rentable property.
LKGIK RX F OWLS — i>eghorLß have the
reputation of being the most prolific egg
producers of all fowls. The average pro
duce of ayoune, well kept flock is about
160 e*gs yearly for each hen, and this is
approached only by the Plymouth Rocks.
Leghorns are of three" kinds or varieties,
white, brown, and speckled or dominique.
Ihe white is the most popular and is an
elegant bird. With a white plumage sha
ded with delicate cream coJor, fine arched
sickle feathers, clean legs; a large falliue
serrated single comb and deep wattles both
of a rich crimson color; a slender graceful
earnage, and an active foot, and vigorous
disposition, they are graceful, handsome
and attractive; and as well as 111 their ap
pearance are handsome in their profitable
eeg prwluction. The eggs are as hand
some as the lowls; of a pure white color
slightly pointed oval form and large in
size. As Leghcins are prolific Winter
layers, their eggs realize higher prices by
fully one-half than fbose of the Summer
layeis; and as the pullets begin to lay when
six tr eight months old a flock of these is a
most desirable possession to the farmer or
the poultry keeper whose aim is pro6t.
The brown and speckled varieties are
equally prolific and differ only in plumage
from the white breed.
A!R. OCHAXER explains how he keeps up
the vigor and originality of his stock of
Wilson strawberries, wbich he pronounces
the fie est shipping berry known. He says:
Since I have possessed those plants I have
made it a lule never to propagate from
ibem after their fruiting that is, never to
use any young plants for planting from
these which had already borne fruit. I
find, after much and close examination,
that plants,after giving us a bountiful crop
of frc.it, are more or less weakened by it
or through it; and thepuDy, spindling run
ners which tLey throw out right after, do
net suggest to me the ideal plant which I
look lor and want for my planting. Ido
not claim that this is absolutely necessary
in crdcr to keep up the originality of any
variety, Ido claim that this practice has
rewarded me with the most flattering re
sults. For ihe last four years 1 picked
from 4 000 to 8 000 quarts per acre of my
Wihons, not from a few rods square of
petted and stimulated plants., but from
acres of them.
'! HERE has been a great deal of talk
about the best kind of grains such as corn,
wheat, etc. The subject has been well
handled, and much said about all grain
except oats. I dont recollect that I have
seen oats mentioned. 1 think oats is as
important a crop as any, these times. I
would like to bear what variety is the best,
all things considered, and what variety
gave the biggest yield last year, 1 will
give my experience with the Imperial oats,
which 1 got direct from o'd England. J
have had it three years, and it has done
very w ell. I think it beats any oats I have
seen. It is pure white, has a stiff straw,
and stools more than anv oilier variety that
1 have yet seen; ripens very early,and out
weighs any oats 1 ever heard of; it weighs
from 45 to 48 pounds to the bushel, stroked
measure. This last year was not an oats
year; sti 1, mine gave 66 bushels to the
acre Iv measure,and to add the ovei weight
13 pounds. ;o the bushel, makes about 93
bushels by weight to the acre.

WE are not at all surprised to learn tuat the
demand of the people everywhere for that
famous medicine, Vegetine, is constantly becom

demand all over our own country, and had some
time ago made its way Into varions foreign lands.
At the present time the esteemed proprietor, Mr.
11. It. Stevens, of Boston, Is sending it to order to
some of the remotest foreign countries; and It
seems now evident that Vegetine is to become a
universal medicine. It Is a "patent medicine,"
but it has gained its fame and made Its way every
where on its own Intrinsic merits. Such were flfte
unmistakable and undeniable results or the use of
this astonishing and, at this day, world-renowned

the regular "doctors' stuff'' that hud ever been
given in sickness.
There was and there could lie 110 dispute about
the astonishing cures effected by the medicine.

Mandrake was first used by tee Indians, In a
crude state, but even in their hands performed
such wonderful cures that It attracted the atten
tion of physicians, more especially as it was found
to produce all the good results of mercury, with
out any of the dangers attending the use of this
Since Its Introduction to the medical world. It
has almost entirely taken the place or mercurial
preparations in diseases for which mercury was
Mandrake is found throughout the United States
In low, shady situations. It bears Its flowers In
May or June, and matures tta fruit In September
or October. It la more common in the Western
and Middle States than In New England or the
South. The root only is used as a medicine, the
proper time for gathering tietng the early part of
November, soon after the ripening of the fruit. It
should never be used when freshly gathered, and
even when dry It will sometimes cause severe pain
unless combined with other medicines.
We ask the reader to carefully peruse the fol
lowing opinions of two eminent physicians on the
great curative properties of the Mandrake:
Prof. John King, M. D., says la The American
Diepensatory: "As s deobstrueut it Is one of the
most valuable In our materia medica, acting
through and upon a'l the tissues of the system, in
billons and Uphold febrile diseases it Is very valu
able as a cathartic, often breaking op the disease
In Chronic Hepatitis (Liver Complaint) there Is
not its superior in the whole range of medicines,
being vastly more useful than mercurial agents,
arousing the liver to healthy action, increasing the
flow of bile, and keeping up these actions longer
than any other agent with which we are ac
quainted. In constipation it acts on the bowels
without disposing them to subsequent costiveness.
ftfl a cholagogue cathartic It probably has no
equaL It produces a specific action on the liver,
arousing it to action an t producing free bilious
evacuations. In bilious fevers, either remittent
or Intermittent, as well as acute disease of '.he
liver, or bilious pneumonia, It not uufreqnently
arrests the disease at tbe first prescription, or It so
far modifies the attack that the case becomes mild
and manageable. In chronic Hepatic derange
ment (Liver Complaint) with Dyspepsia, It Is a
most valuable remedy. Its range of application Is
perhaps more exteusive than auy other cathartic
medicine, and while In auy anil every case it will
do all the good that Is claimed for mercury. It is
entirely free from auy of the objections to that
The late Professor T. V. Morrow says: "Per
haps no medicine has been Introduced to the medi
cal profession for the last one hundred years
which promises to be of so much value AS Podo
phyUin (Mandrake.) An experience somewhat ex
tensive in the use of this agent in the treatment
of a great variety of cases of disease, has fully con
vinced ine of its immense value as a reme
dial agent, especially as a purgative and
alterative. It operates with energy and effi
ciency, without harshness, leaving tbe bowels in a
gently lax condition for two or three days after its
operation. With oue single dose of this medicine
I have frequently arrested a severe attack of bil
ious remittent fever, requiring nothing further to
complete the cure except some"gentle tonic and a
proper avoidance of the exciting causes.
The results of my experience in the use of this
article as a remedial agent, on the whole, are Buch
as to leave no doubt in my mind that It Is destined
to occupy a conspicuous place among tbe most
valuable remedies of the materia medica, with a
very extended range of applications In the treat
ment of disease. Indeed, it promises to be more
than a substitute for mercury In all those cases
where mercury has proved of any substantial
value, without the liability of producing Injurious
effects ou the constitution of patients."
Mandrake has been used In many forms by phy
sicians and others, but R was never brought before
the public In a perfect and prae* 1 "* 1 wgy until pre

They are the only perfect preparation of
that great substitute for mercury, There Is not
