PASTURE. —It is amazing bow slowly
belter methods ot farming are carried into
effect, After all the discussion upon the
value of the pasture and the best methods
ot management, during the past ten years,
one may ride upon the cars for a hundred
unles and scarcely see a pasture with full
leed. In nearly every field the cattle are
wauderibg about to pick up the crumbs,
are looking wishfully towards the ""corn
fields, and in places are commencing to
eat into the hay and the straw stacks. Un
der proper management stock should do
belter in October and November than in
July and August. The flies are gone,cool
westher has sharpened the appetite, and
the tendency of the animal is to store for
winter. Every consideration of thrift de
mands that the best ot alteutiou be given
tbe stock at this time.
What is meant by a good fall pasture?
Possibly some fanners never saw one. It
means a pasture that has, on the first day
ol October, at least one ton of blue grass,
clover and timothy per acre, and can be
secured on rich land by removing all stock
after July 15th, and, on poorer laud, after
Generally it is better to remove the
stock by middle of June. Farmers may
say, "We cannot afford to let our laud lie
idle through tbe summer." There is no
loss by so doing, but a great gain. Laud
treated in this way produces much more
grass during the season than when deuud
ed during the heat of summer. The well
known farmer, Bobert Miller, of West
Liberty, In a recent convetsation, claimed
that it was a good plau to allow a pasture
to remain ungraded during au entire season
once m lour or five years, aud gave au in
stance in his experience to prove it. In
case separate pastures cau not be provided
the next best thing is t:> graze only about
two-thirds the customary stock.
Aliow the grass in the lore part of the
season to grow faster than the stock can
eat it. in such cases a portion ot the tieid
will be kept short and ihe other allowed
to grow. It August aud September be
dry, as in the preseut year, the abundauce
of grass will protect tbe roots auu main
tain a continuous growth, securing thrift
to the herd. Ot course this is uot quite
equal to separate pastures, tor a poi
ticn of the held will be eaten closely, to
its detriment. Under this more caret ol
treatment pastures continue to produce
more every year.
Another important consideration. As
now grazed the surface at the soil becomes
ury and hard, the variety of grasses is
greatly diminished and the quality of sue
as remain is inieiior. They oecouie stin
led and hard and by no means the same
luscious grass the cattle formerly devout
ed so greedily.
THE purpose in straining milk is to make
it cleaner lhau it was before straining, but
the object is ofien poorly accomplished.
In private dairies this work is usually bet
ter pel formed than when it goes to iactoi
ies. When a large number of persons
are all putting milk into one common re
servoir the weight of personal accounta
bility loses much of Its force from the in
creased difficulty of tracing home faults to
their origin. On this accouut the patrons
of factories sometimes omit entirely to
strain milk at all at the farm. They leave

HKEVES. —In feeding for Deef,the notions
of each animal should be consulted—his
preferences, likes and dislikes. The object
of feeding usually is to get the animal to
eat all that t.e will digest well; hence a va
riety should always be at haud, and the
ration varied by feeding cooked, soaked 01
dry meal, as the case may be. with ha>
and roots. Take great care cot to over-sec;
and in case of over-feediug, let starvation
be the cure. Thus the animal will soon
take to feeding again, but will be less like
ly to fall off umoh iii flesh, than if phy
sicked. .Nature is the best physician.

FOR several after a farmer began rais

PROCESS FOR DOINO SHIRTS.— On wash
day when you are ready to hang up the
shirts make some good hot starch, not
thick, and drop a small piece of sper
maceti in while it boils and nib the
starch in good. Let them get perfectly
dry and starch them iu oold starch.
Then let them lie about two hours be
fore ironing. You must have two boards,
one with something soft wraped aiound
and another hard board with a thin piece
of muslin tacked on tight. Then you
need a polishing iron, which can tie had
by taking a three-pound iron to the
blacksmith and have him grind the heel
off. Put some white wax m under a
piece of thick letter paper on a small
board and nib the iron on that. At tor
you have ironed the shirt as nicely as
you can on the regular bosom board,
then you take the hard board and put
the bosom ou it. Then dip a coarse
cloth in oold water aud wriug it out dry
and rub all over the b<*om lightly.
Take your jHilishing iron and rubbing
it tlrst over the waxed paper then over
a cloth, iron crosswise of the bosom
with the heel. Iron the collars and
cuffs the same way. All this takes time
to tell and time to fix at first, but it
will last a long time if you fix things
good, a year at least.
How TO MAKE ROSE WATER.—Who
ever possesses plenty of roses can make
this perfume at slight expense, (lather
the roses while free from dew, and put
them into a two gallon glass jar. Then
take a two-ouuee bottle aud put it iu the
mouth of the jar, so that it will tit close
ly, aud cut some picoes of perfectly
cleau sponge (that has been boiled to
free it from sand ami grit) into narrow
strips, and soak them in the purest olive
oil or Lucca oil. Cottonseed oil will do
if free from any odor. The oil must be
perfectly sweet and fresh or it will spoil
the perfume. Place the sponge inside
the vial, aud tun it upside down iu the
mouth of jar, and put it 111 the hottest
sunshine for four or five days. The heat
will distil the rose leaves, aud the aroma
will rise and saturate the oil in the
sponge. Throw away the leaves when
they are dry and fill the jar as long as
the roees last, and when the bits of
sponge are thoroughly saturated squeeze
ont the oil, or you can leave them in the
vial and keep it closely oorked. A drop
or two of this oil will perfume several
ounces of aloohcl.
FROGS — The hind logs only are used.
They are such a delicacy that it is a
pity not to prepare them nicely ami
serve them done to a turn, crisp, and
hot, Throw them into slightly acidula
ted salted boiling water and let them
boil about three minutes. Then take
them out and drain and dry them well.
Season them with pepper and salt, roll
them in cracker or bread crumbs, and
then in beaten eggs, again in crumbs,
and let them color nicely in boiling lard.
The crumlw should lie removed from
the bones before they are fried. Some
times they are served with little paper
frills curled round the bones, and they
are generally arranged m a circle upon

printing upon other materials, but hith

colorers as well as designers. By the

CORN AND TOMATOES. — One of my
neighbors thinks that dried sweet corn
is a poor dibh in comparisoH with salted
corn. She cuts her corn from the cob
and packs it 111 jars, a layer of salt on
the bottom, on the top, and all the way
through. When cooked first soak the
salt out of the corn. She also finds to
matoes very delicious, indeed, to fry
them in slices in beef suet, pack them
in jars aud till up with hot suet. In
winter take out aud warm up— ripe to
matoes, of course.
THE common practice of having night
lights in the bed-rooms of children of
well-to-do parents is deprecated by Dr.
Bakewell. He says that it has a most
injurious effect upon the nervous system
of young children. "Instead cf the
peifect rest the optic nerves ought to
have, and which nature provides for by
darkness of the uight, these nerves are
perpetually stimulated, and, of course,
the brain and the rest of the nervous
system suffer. Children thus brought
up are excessively timid for years after

POTATOES warmed in this way are ex

a little parsley chopped fine. Take
cold boiled potatoes and cut them in
small pieces or in slices, and when the
butter has melted stir them in. Let
them heat gradually and boil for four
or five minutes, and then serve.
To PRESERVE SWEET CORN. —Boil the
eorn on the ear from three to live min

stone jar, allowing three pints of eorn

A kind of circular wall in gutta perclia
and p'aster was built, so that a trough was
made with the concave mirror forming the
bottom. This space was filled up by the
silvering solution, and the operation was
termina'ed as usual by Ibe Foucauil pro
cess. The trouble of turning over the
glass, which weighs six hundred kilo
grams, was thus fayed. This success is
ail the more to be apprcc wed because the
mirror must be silvered every two or three
years, The curvature of the mirror not
being quite perfect, it will be used mostly
for spectrum analysis of the light emaua
