FOR THE FARM AND HOME
It is epidemio, characterized by a
diarrhoea, as a rule, and very destruc
tive to life(says the Journal of Agricul
ture). The disease is generally sud
den in development. Fowls will lay
on one day and the next day be carried
off by the diseasa Still it is not always
or frequently eo rapid in its course.
We had previously examined thepreni
ises where the birds had been kept
through the winter, and found they
were too crowded, twenty-five birds
roosting in a space about six by seven
feet and four feet high, in one corner
of a dark and badly ventilated
stable, and believe the cause of the
disease to have been virtually blood
poisoning, induced by uncleanliness,
careless feeding and close, unventi
lating quarters at night.
Cropa In Orchards,
A Yermont corespondent of the
Practical Farmer gives some of the re
mits of his experiments in cultivating
Drchards, which, although according
with the experiments of others, may
oe useful. Sowing wheat in an orch
ard always checks the growth of the
trees, even if the ground is manured.
Oats are exhausting, but less so thnn
wheat. Com and potatoes both an
swer well, and the cultivation they re
ceive benefits the trees. In one '"n
stance half an orchard was sown with
wheat, and the consequence was that
it was put back two years as compared
with the other half. Wheat in a
thrifty young plum orchard ruined it.
To these statements we may add the fol
lowing: A neighbor set out a hun
dred peach trees, cultivating a part of
the ground in potatoes, and the re
mainder was put in wheat. None of
the trees in tho potatoes grew less
than a foot and a half, and some sent
up shoots two feet high. Xone of those
which stood in the wheat ground grew
more than three inches.
Clover n Fertilizer.
A stick of wood burned on the sur
face mostly pjisses off into gas, leaving
only the ashes; but the same stick, if
burnt in a coal-pit excluded from the
air. forms a uyiss of carbon of nearly
M* quite its original size. Now. all de
lay of matter is a slow com
bustion, and when this is done-under
the soil, not only are the gases ft**,
tained in the soil, but more caibon is
formed, and this carbon has the power
to appropriate the valuable gases al
ways present in the atmosphere. The
great value of clover as a fertilize** is
due. first to the carbon furnished by
the decay of the plant, and second to
the fine mechanical effect on the soil,
which renders it porous, so that the
atmosphere penetrates it and deposits
plant-food. It is clear that better fer
tilizing effects will result from the
ploughing down of the crop to dec.ay
in the soil. Ordinarily more can be
made out of the tops than they are
worth for manure, and, if rightly man
aged, the roots will supply the needed
fertility.— Pennsylrania Farmer.
One of the most serious obstacles in
the way of successful dairying is aw et
pasture. Land that is saturated with
water produces unwholesome herbage,
the grass is rank and sour, and some
times the herbage consists wholly of
sedges and other coarse plants that are
not easily digestible. Such food can
not produce good milk, and the milk
made from such food will not make
cheese or butter. But very often
ihis coarse, rank food produces disease
in the cows. This is more especially
the crse with yearlings and young cat
tle whose digestive powers are not
fully matured. Another injury results
from the use of such pastures. Vapor
is constantly arising or settling over
low wet lands, and the presence of this
vapor greatly affects the temperature.
Every farmer knows how frosts occur
upon such low grounds when higher
lands are free from them. Now, all
these influences seriously affect the
health of cattle feeding on such lands.
The vapor arising from them is loaded
with poisonous germs, which infects
the blood when they are breathed into
the lungs. The moisture which settles
down upon them is cold, and as it con
denses into visible vapor this absorbs
from the cold air various unheal! hful
and injurious gases which are always
arising from the decaying vegetable
matter in the soil. Every one knows
more or less of what malaria is and
how it affects persons. Cattle are as
subject to these atmospheric poisons as
human beings are, and what we know
as malaria frequently produces dis
eases which cause wonderment and
surprise to tho owners of the sick ani
mals. So the cold which causes the
frost in these low places chills the ani
mals, and a chill to a milking cow is
most apt to affect the udder first and
produce garget, at which again the
owner -wonders, and for which he can
not account. Pregnant cows suddenly
chilled in this way, especially by lying
down upon the ground, lose their
calves, and still again the owners
wonder how that can happen, when
every care, as he supposes, has been
taken of the animals. But such
things are caused by wet, undrained
pastures, and every farmer should by
every possible means remove such a
constant danger from his farm by
draining these lands. This is the sea
son for such work, and wherever it
1 needs to be done the opportunity of
doing it should not he missed.— New

The Origin of Silk.
If we put trust in tradition there is a
legend that Tchin, the oldest son of ,la
phet, father of the Asiatic race, taught
his children the art of pn paring silk,
as well as the arts of painting and
sculpture. Be this as it may, it is cer
tain that about three thousand years bo
fore the Christian era a Chinese book,
the Chou-King, described silken cords,
which were stretched upon a musical
instrument, invented by the Finperor
Fo-Hi. One of his successors, Chin-
Xong, reputed inventor of the plough,
explained to his contemporaries what
beautiful stuffs could he obtained by
the cultivation of the mulberry tree,
and about the year 2t>oo B. C., an em
press, to whom a grateful posterity as
signed a place in a celestial constella
tion, perfected the art of unravelling
the cocoon and weaving. From that
time silk culture had its principal seat
near the northern portion of the Yel
low river, in the province of Chan-
Tong. There was produced the silk
for the royal household. Yellow was
the chosen color for the emperor, em
press and prince imperial, violet for
the other wives of the emperor, blue

the leaves of the mulberry with he'
own dainty fingers and watched over

For a longtime this valuable indus
try remained the exclusive property
of the Chinese empire, but about tiie
third century before the Christian era
a military expedition from China bore
the results of its civilization to the
Occident. Silk became known in Per
sia and India, and was at last brought
to Europe. The soldiers of Crassus,
fifty-six years before Christ, saw silk
en standards among the Parthians, and
a few years later an immense velarium
of silk protected the spectators in the
Roman circus from the rays of the
sun. From this time the Romans were
always provided with the beautiful
textures which were the admiration
of their legions. Vet silk was still the
privileged possession of the rich, and
in the time of Aurelian, who flourish
ed in the third century, was worth
about foity times its present value.

"When death was hourly expected, all
remedies having failed, ana Dr. 11.
James was experimenting with the many
herbs of Calcutta, he accidentally made
a preparation which cured his only child
of consumption. Ilis child is now In
this country and enjoying the best of
health. He has proved to the world that
consumption can bo positively and per
manently cured. The doctor now gives
this recipe free, only asking two ,2-cent
stamps to pay expenses. The herb also
cures night sweats,nausea at the stomach,
and will break up a fresh cold in twenty
four hours. Address Craddock A Co.,
