jjOUSE AND FARM,
Farming In tb6 Sfboß>
A farmers’ club in Central Illinois,
«re learn from the Secretary, has
been discussing the subject of the
influence of the moon bn vegetation.
U e particular point in the #scus
,io„ . ya s in regard to the proper time
sow wheat in order to gain the
reatost amount of good from the
fnflnen -ea of the moon. As is usual
aeo this subject comes up, there
ere some who denied that the moon
”, any influence on growing
r .. ; while others affirmed that .it
.1 exert a powerful influence, and
‘ whieh farmers should j^ail
1 intelligent person, or persons
, of :i very large -share of
Amnion senate wo think,*believes
•hat the* moon exerts any occult in-
Ilaancii »n vegetation in any stage
ol its development. There is, how
ever, some reason for believing that
V mooii’* rays do influence the
ro vt'n of vegetation, and observa
tion seems :o confirm the idea that
itiUUliod plants do make a more
P „,.ia growth during the period of
:U TB.Toii*.- greatest light, than dar
ing that of her greatest obscuration—
nil the circumstances being equally
‘•ivoir.blc. It also claimed to be
, ;sct. and there ia some reason for
the Uiicf, that very tender plants,
( v example young wheat plants, do
Ibj't if allowed a periodic! rest dur
ing tho night, in which they recu
perate, as babies arid young ducks
do; while hardy young plants like
«p-o;it3 of potatoes and other bulbs,
which have something to feed upon
dirocily, do better if. their growth is
i.ushed during the whole of the day
Admitting both of these premises
to be tree, the conclusion would be
this: If v?e could regulate the ;
we-uher in respect to warmth and.j
dr no;-?, or he reasonably assured
tnafiihcy .voiild be favorable dicing

On ilw other hand, wc would, eyery

* father being insured, plant pota
aud some other crops which
■e hardy at the start, so that they
would come ui> “in the light of the
own,” in order that they might
make the fastest growth possible.
Bui there are “so many ifa in the
wy” that we do not , believe it is
:r.icl'csble to take advantage of the
:.vor >ble action of the moon’s indu
ce, if, indeed, it exerts influences
■specially favorable or unfavorable;

cate our children. Farmers' chil
dren are educated chiefly in the com*
moo school. Good common schools
are doing more for the country, for
good morals, than any other iastru*
raenality. They must be encouraged.
Those having them in their keeping
mast employ the best teachers, visit
them, in every possible way. They
should constantly strive to secure
the best—not the cheapest—teach*
ers. They must employ teachers
whose hearts are in their work : who
. . . - * 9
love their vocation; who do not
teach simply to make a few dollars,
but because they feel that they wish
to do honestly and well. —Rural
Cows usually become addicted to
kicking when heilers, from being
milked byoabusive milkers. 1 1 have
never seen an old cow become a
kicker unless abused. Instead of
cows being averse to being milked
when giving a large quantity, I have
ever found it it the reverse. When
pasturage is good, and cows come
home at night with udders distended
with- milk, they seem grateful to'
have it removed. Milking a heifer
for the first time requires patience,
for they will almost invariably kick.
In such a case, put a. broad strap
round her body, just in front of th«
under, and buckle it up moderately
tight, and as soon as she gets quiet
(for she may kick around a little at
first), take your pail, sit down and
go to milking, for she is as helpless
as a kitten. Do not attempt to use
a rope instead of a strap for it will
not answer. This is a much better
method tying the legs, etc., as it
does not hurt the animal in the
l;ast. A few applications-of the
strap, with plenty of patience and
kindness, will cure the most obstinate
These should never be highly I
manured. Singular as U may seem,
better results have been obtained by
growing cherry trees in grass than
by cultivating them as high pears.
Experienced fruit-growers in Dela
ware, who once began a system of
liberal manuring and treatment of
cherry trees, found after an experi
ence of a few years, that the bark
would burst, gum would ooze out,
aud many portions of the tree show
an unhealthy condition. The grow
ers immediately discontinued high
feeding and seeded the land down
to grass. The trees recovered their
health, and have borne bountifully
ever since the system of grass cul
ture began. It is the only fruit tree
of all varieties which wc can safely
recommend to be treated in this
way. A Delaware friend says his
row of cherry trees, growing in
grass along the fence are the picture
of health and luxuriance; while in
previous years with orchard culture,
he could never make them success
Arc not our Agricultural Societies
ansj Farm Clubs wrong, in offering
their premiums for the largest crops
of corn that can be raised, regard
less of cost ? Any one who has cap
ital enough can raise a large crop of
corn, and in our estimation may not
deserve as much credit for the crop
as another who raises one-half as
much; if the latter can sell his crop
and have more profit than the form
er, wo think he deserves the most
credit; or ia other words, would it
not be better to offer the premium
for the most profitable crop, the one
which yielded the greatest margin
between yalue and profit is the one
wg want, and not the one which
may cost* more than it is worth,
large though it may be.— Exchange.

hundred pounds put on a pig are
the cheapest ever put on him. Our
experience has been, that it pays
best to have pigs dropped soon af

weather is cool enough for cutting j

led, will often bring twics as much j
per hundred as those which will dress |
