APPLICATION clr I.IMF, — Thousands of
bushels of lime are annually thrown away
by improper methods of application, Every
fanner is a believer in tfce benefits derived
from lime, and even on limestone lauds it
ia used with advantage. As all plan s
contain more or less lime it not only rerves
as an m portant element of food but lu
some sections its use is an absolute necessi
ty. It may be safely said that all soils
contain some lime. Lime in the soil, being
principally in the shape of carbonate, is
little influenced by the action of rains.
When limestone is burnt it merely loses its
carbonic acid, and when we slack it with
water the lime urites with water, which
crystallizes and forms hydrate of lime.
After awhile, by attiacting carbouic acid
from the air, the lime becomes again a car
bonate. and is then in the same condition
aa before burning- that is, it has become
once more limestone in a fine condition.
Lime is often bought and slacked, and
then placed aside until some convenient
time arrives for putting it on the laud; and
as the process of slacking is considered an
ordinary occurence it is sometimes done
carelessly. When it is ready to be broad
casted it generally goes to the tieid in
lumps or in the shape of fine gravel. The
farmer who knows how to use lime is very
careful to apply the lime, if possible, as a
tine powder, for then the benefit from its
application is more direct; it reaches every
part, and less quantity is required, which
amp l )' repays lor the labor of nrepajation.
Clover, peas, beans, potatoes, &c., are lime
plants, and we can account for the benefi
cial effects of plaster (sulphate of lime) by
knowmg that it is slightly soluble in water,
and every ram dissolves portions of it,thus
furnishing ready lime food, The freshly
slacked lime when m the shape cf a hy
drate is also dissolved by water, and as its
effects are not oalj shown in the growth
of the crop hut also as a chemical agent in
the soil, the advantage ot using judgment
and care iu its preparrtion and application
can be seen at oDoe. In the first place, in
slacking the freshly burnt lime too much
water should be guarded against. Use it
sparingly, as the lime will become liner,
and contain fewer lumps. After the lime
is dry every bushel of it should be sifted,
lumps broken and the whole mass brought
t* a fine, powdered condition. Applied in
such a tine condition, time will convince
the fanner that the labor expended will be
as nothing compared to the difference be
tween the lime in that condition and when
in a Jumpy or giavelly sta f e, The tenden
cy of lime is downwards in the earth, for
the rain always takes with it mere or less
lime whenever it fails, and the kinds of
lime mcst subject to the action of moisture
are those that are in the finest possible
state of division. Hard lumps that have
revei ted to limestone are almost useless,
and their application is extravagance. It
is admitted that there arc UDScen and often
unknown agencies that work even upon the
lumps, but the processes are slower and
less certain than when by a little care the
lime is broadcasted over the so l in a fresb,
PROVIDE FOR SHORT FEED. —The provi
dent dairyman, whether milk-raiser, but
ter or cheese-maker, will soon be putting
in some kind of forage crop to help the
short pasturage that is almost sure to come
about the first of July. We urge attention
to this matter now. It is full feed that
makes the full bag. One of the best crops
to sow for this purpose, is oats, barley and
peas, a mixture of one-third each. This
crop can te put in as soon as the ground is
enough to wcrk. The ground should
have a liberal dressing of manure or fertil
izer, spread on alter ploughing and well
worked into the soil with the harrow, and
then seeded at the rate cf three bushels per
acre. The Canada pea] is best for this crop,
but we have bad good success with the
marrowfats and advancer. Put in the
crop, and if not needed as help for the
pasture, it can be cut and cured for hay.
if the land ie highly manured and the
crop is cut before the seed is formed, or
just before blossoming, it will continue
to grow the same as grass and will produce
another crop. The peas will not amwunt
to anything in the second growth, but the
oats and barley will cover tbe ground and
make a heavy second crop. Tnis mixture
is one of the best of our forage crops.
ROOT PRUNING. l'he experiments were
made on the apple and pear. A vigorous
apple tree, 8 cr 10 years old, which had
scarcely made any fruit buds, has done best
when about half the roots were cut in one
season and half three years lat*r, by golnir
half way around on opposite sides in one
year and finishing at the next pruning,
working two feet underneath to sever
downward root*. It has always answered
well, also, to cut from such trees all the
larger and ionger roots about two and a
half feet from the stem, leavine the smal
ler and weaker ones longer, and going half
way around, as already stated. The oper
ation was repeated three or four years later
by extending the cut circle a foot or x two
furtner away from the tree. By this oper
ation unproductive fruit trees became
ttuckly studded with fruit spurs, and after
ward bore profusely. This shortening of
the roots has been continued in these expe
riments for twenty j ears with much suc
cess, the circle cf roots remaining greatly
circumscribed. The best time for the work
has been found to be in the latter part of
August and beginning of September, when
growth has nearly ceased, aDd whde the
leaves are yet on the trees, causing grea'er
increase ot bloom buds the followin? year
than when performed after the leaves have
THE old fogy farmer's orchard is al
ways overrun with insect pests of every
description. His "oply remedy, " when
they become unpleasantly noticeable is to

Intelligent farmers don't plow under grow
ing crops to kill the weeds which have

insects as you fight weeds.
ALL crowding of branches should be
prevented by regular attention, for the

DE. YOELCKEK rtcentiy stated before a
meeting of the Butish Dairy Farmers'
Association that he found that food given
to a cow while in milk would be converted
into milk within six hours from tne time
it is eaten, and that a rapid improvement
in the quality of the milk follows a change
from poorer to richer food. He also
spoke very decidedly in favor of soi'ing as
against pasturing, the latter being a most
wasteful method of feeding.
A NEW JESSEY farmer reports that a
dressing of eight bushels per acre of salt
to land badly infested with white grubs
enabled him to raise good crops of corn for
three years past, which was impossible
previous to this application.
IT is estimated that 11,000,000 bushels
Ol corn will be used this year by the vari

TilB&K slice* of bread shown by a
Lewiston flour dealer Thursday suoko
for themselves. Placed side by side,
they shaded very abruptly into three
strikingly distinct tints. Onjp was of
the hue of Graham and fell iuto your
hand like a half-baked brick. Auother
was nearly whiie, and would be greet*d
with pleasure by a hungry niau. The
third was so white that snow would
have to be bleached to compare with it;
moreover, it possessed that spongy tex
ture which is so gratifying to the eater,
and a source of so much pride to the
cook. It threatened to dissolve in one's
mouth, and would tempt a gorged epi
cure. It would be a strain to say one
could distinguish them in the dark.
The flour dealer deposed that the three
pliees of bread were made by three
women from one and the same kind of
flour. The cook who produced the first
slice was dissatisfied with the flour,
while the woman who made the broad
last mentioned said she could make
good bread out of flour that didn't cost
less than four dollars a barrel. It is
evident that bread-cooking is not one of
the lost arts, but it is an art which still
contains sufficient mystery to puzzle
many and confonud not a few of the
angels who hover over our flour barrels.
EELS IN MATKLOTTK. —CIe.iu two
pounds of eels, cut them in two-inch
lengths, put them over the tire in plenty
of cold water with a tablospoonful of
salt, aud bring them to a boil; adi an
onion stuck with cloves and two table
spoonfuls of vinegar; boil them 15 rniu
utes, tako them up, dry the eels 011 a
clean cloth, roll them iu flour, and fry
them brown iu a saucepan with about
two tablespoonfuls of butter. When
they are brown add a bouquet of herbs
(which is made by tying together a few
sprigs of parsley, celery, a bay leaf, half
whole, ani half a dozen peppercorns)
and a pint of boiling water; season the
matelotte with a teaspoonful of salt and
a quarter of a salt-spoonful of pepper.
Pet 1 a pint of button onions, put them
iu a saucepan with a teaspoonful each
of butter and sugar, and toss them over
the fire until brown; then add them to
the matelotte and simmer it one hour.
If the sauce evaporates add enough
l>oiling water to make up the origiual
quantity. When the matelotte is done
add a glass of wine to it, and serve some
croutons of fried bread, made by frying
small heart -shaped slices of stale bread
light brown in smokiug hot fat.
DUST FURNITURE WITH A WIT CHAMOIS.
—A Paris jourmd of bygmie warns
housekeepers against the use of u feath
er duster, instead of a wet cloth. The
duster simply chases the particles from
the furniture into the air, where they
arc inhaled. Dust is formed of innu
merable quantities of spores aud eygs
and germs, as well as of inert matter,
A flourish of the duster may set loose au
assassinating germ. The dangerous par
tides attach themselves roadily to the
dampened cloth. The origin of many
diseases is traceable to the mere s|>eeks
which ought to be removed, aid nit
simply stirred up.
RHUBARB JELLY.— Take some rhubarb,
wipe it with a clean wet cloth, peel it,
aoii cut it into pieces an inch long. To
each pound of rhubarb add J pound ol
white sugar. Put it to boil tor about
ten minutes, or until the juice is well
drawn. Strain it into a preserving pan,
let it boil quickly until it clings to the
spoon, skim it aud put it into jam pots
or moulds. The quickest way to know
if it will set is to drop, a little oil a plate
CEMENT FOR GLASSWARE. —For mend
ing valuable glass objects, which would
be disfigured by common cement,
chrome ceaieut may be used. This is a
mixture of five parts of gelatine to one
of a solution of acid chromate of
lime. The broken edges are oovered
with this, pressed together and exposed
to sunlight, the effect of the latter be
ing to render the compound insoluble
even in boiling water.
HAM TOAST. —Mince finely a quarter
of a pound of cooked ham with au an
chovy boned and washed; add a little
cayenne and pounded mace, beat up
two eggs; mix with the mince, and add
just sufficient milk to keep it moist;
make it quite hot, and serve on small
rounds of toast or fried bread.
AyrrooTE FOR IVY POISONING. —Bathe
the parts affected freely with spirits of
Ditre. If the blisters be broken, so as
to allow tlis Ditre to penetrate the cuti
cle, more than a single application is
rarely necessary, and even where it is
applied to the burface of the skiu three
or four times a day, there is rarely a
trace of the poison left uext morning.
A VERY easy way to poach eggs is to
get boiling water in your muffin tins
and set them on the hottest part of the
stove; break the eggs in the saucer,
then drop one in each tin; iu two or
three minutes they will be done, and
can be taken up one at a time m good
shape with the help of a small straiuer;
season with butter, pepper and salt.
BREAKING GLASS.— To break glass any
required form may make a notch with a
file on the edge cf the glass; draw your
finger, starting from the notch; make a
small rod of iron red-hot and draw it
aloDg the lines; a crack will follow the
iron, and the glass can then be easily
WHITE WINK JELLY.—Pour one pint
of cold water on six sheets of isiuglass;
let it stand until dissolved. Then pour
a pint of boiling water on it, and add
the juice and grated rind of one lemon,
one pint of sugar and one wineglass of
white wine. Let it stand until it hard
