TILLAGE AND EVAPORATION —A few
years ago a contemporary announced with
great positireneas the discovery that culti
vation of the surface soil promotes instead
of retarding evaporation, and is therefore
labor worse than wasted, so far as it hail
previously been supposed to help iu retaiu
i noisture. Experiments by Professor Stock
bridge, of Amherst, were subsequently
published, which seemed sufficient to con
lule the position above referred to, and to
establish the correctness of previous teach,
ings on the subject. And now Dr. Slur
levant, of the State Experiment Station at
Geneva, reports the following experiment,
which If similar in result to those of Pro
fessor Stock bridge, though not couducted
in precisely the same manner. The ques
tion of drought is one which periodically
engages attention, and any means by
which its injurious effects may v be ungita
ted should certainly be known to the far
mer. That cultivation, by forming a
loose soil upon the surface wuich acts as a
aiulch, conserves the water to the soil, is a
fact which is well established, and should
be more commonly appreciated. For the
purpose of offering numerical values which
shall express the influence of cultivation,
we have tried the following experiment:
Oak boxes of one cubic foot capacity wei e
made of half-inch stuff, and ihoiouuhly
soaked with oil. The bottoms being re
moved, the frame was torced dowu into
the earth in the corn Held, and the bottom
afterwards put m position. We thus had
a foot cube of soil in its natural position.
The surface or the earth in one box was
left undisturbed, while the surfaces of two
boxes were kept cultivated. By weighing
these boxes the gain or loss is assumed to
measure the evaporation which has taken
place from each. From July 20 to Au
gust 1, six days, the cultivated soil evapo
rated at ihe rate of 906 gallons per acre
lets than the undisturbed soil, or less 151
gallons daily per acre. From August Ito
August 10, nine days, the cultivated roil
evaporated 2367 gallons per acre less than
did the undisturbed soil, or less than 263
gallons daily per acre. During the whole
period from July 26 to August 10,. tifteen
da) s, the saving of water effected through
cultivation figured up 212 gallons daily per
acre, or expressing these tacts i i another
form, the undisturbed soil lost per acre
from July 26 to August 10, 4243 gallons;
the cultivated soil 1060 gallons. In caicu
ltt.ng our results to the acre by multiply
ing ihe evaporation which has taken plate
Horn a square foot of ruiface by 43,560,
ihe unavoidable eirors are correspondingly
multiplied, and while duplicate series can
never be expected to give the same numer
ical results, yet the one fact becomes ui -
questionable—that through cultivation we
are enabled to conserve to the soil a large
arnouDt of water during a drought, iu
deed, observation through extended peri
ods of drought, also plainly shows the su
periority ot fields that have been well cul
tivated over those where cultivation has
CUTTING SKKD FQTATOKS. —The best of
farmers uiffer materially in regard to the
beet way to prepare seed potatoes for plant -
iug. One farmers has obtained the best
results from planting whole potatoes. An
other has been most successful in cutting
his potatoes, giving only one good eye to
a cutting. Another has met with the best
success with one eye, but the cutliug was
made deep with a picked pointed knife, so
as to giye the eye plenty ct nourishment
before it throws out roo's to draw its sup
plies from the soil, bo it teems that pota
toes have made tine yields from all styles
of cut seed, and from small aqd large
The fact is that in a tolerably sandy
soil, containing plenty ot vegetable mat
ter, with plenty of cowyard manure, and
some ashes and superphosphate, and pro
per cultivation, the yield will be apt to be
large in a good potato season if the seed
is of the right kind, cut in almost any
style, or planted whole.
THE muck or peat of some localities may
be applied directly to the land, either
ireah dug, if dry enough to haul, in which
condition it is best to apply it in the au
tumn, so that it may l>e ameliorated by
the fiosts and thawiugs ot winter, or after
such weather?Dg. Other kinds ot muck
cannot be used advantageously without
composting with lime or manure, or white
ashes, or some other active substance, while
that of some localities applied raw is pos
itively deleterious to the crops of the nrst
jcar. As a general rule muck may be
made uselul in ordinary farm o|>era
lions by mixiDg it with manure from the
stable, in the cow-yard, the pig-pens, or
the sheep-yards, and it is safe to say that
the addition ot muck of good quality in
this way may easily double or triple the
value ot the manure made upen the farm.
That is, a yard capable of furnishing,
under ordinary circumstances, 100 loads
of manure, may lie made to furmsn twice
or even three times as much, both in
quality aod value.
OOTOBKR is a good time to get out a sup
ply of swamp muck. It is impossible to
answer the q lestion as to the exact value
of this material as applied to land. The
quality of muck varies greatly, some of it
not being woitb the expense of removing
it from the beds, even when this can he
done with ease. The fertilizing value ot
most mucks depends largely upon the ni
trogen they contain, and that this element
may be available the muck needs to un
dergo a process of decomposition. The
* nnrogen must be liberated from its lnsolu
bie organic compounds, and form soluble
substances, as the aitrates and ammonia
compoudds. To secure this, muck should
be either placed in a heap and subjected to
the influence of freezing and thawing—
weathering, as it Is termed—or be mixed
with manure in a compost heap, and there
undergo a decomposition, to tit it for use
as a fertilizer. At ttiis season the muck
beds are usually filled with water, but by
beginning at one side, a boat or scow may
be used to advantage.
THE English farmers are congratulating
themselves that the lean years which had
come upon them are now ended. The
crops are almost universally good,and thus
far the weather—usually so treacherous in
this country—has been very favorable for
harvest work. In the Southern part ol the
British Islands the wheat is now nearly all
in, hut in the northern part ot England and
south of Scotland they are just in the
midst of the harvest. The wheat crop is
said to be below the average in yieiJ, but
it is really above it, for the so-called aver
age can scarcely be called a just one.
VIOLETS.— Few things are more valued
in winter than a bunch of Bweet Violets.
Some may new be potted, and they will
flower in the window towards spring: or a
small bed of them may be made in a frame
which should be protected by a mat from
severe frost. The same of Pansies.

SPICED APPLES. —Spiced apples are
very appetizing, and the new and usual
ly almost tasteless early apples can be
prepared in this way: Take four pounds
of apples (weigh them after they are
peeled), two pounds of sugar, half an
ounce of ciunamon in the stiek, one
quarter of an ounce of cloves and one
pint of vinegar; let the vinegar, spices
and sugar come to a boil; tben put in
the whole apples and cook them untii
they are so tender that a broom splint
will pierce them easily. These will
keep for a loug time in a jar. Put a
clean cloth over the top of the jar be
fore putting the cover on. E irly pears
may also be spiced in the same way, and
are nice for dinner or tea.

PRESERVED GRAPES IN BUNCHES.—
Take out the stones from the bunches
with a pin, breaking tliem as little as
possible; boil some clarified sugar to
