jjOTJSE AJSTD FARM.
To the stock farmer it Is a ques
. 0 f great importance, unless he
in that fertile belt wheregms
iB green theyear through and his
stock forage instead of
reqoiring shelter and the best of
prepared food. Such of our readers
as live in this belt of perennial green
m read this article and sympathize
their less favored brethren.;;
The first point to determine/ is
hen grass contains the greatest
amount of nutriment in a soluble
and digestible condition. There is
D 0 doubt that grass and all forage
plants contain the most Jabeolnte
outrlment a t the time of the perfec
tion of the seed, bat in perfecting
ifed the stalk yields Up its sol
uble matter and becomes tough and
Toodr, »<? as to be nearly indegeati
to the animal. It baa also been
determined by chemical analysis
that at the time of blossoming the
gr ag gee contain all the nutriment
required to perfect the seed without
receiving anything more from the
soil, and that by keeping the roots
ojoisi and without any earth the
«ced will perfect itself. Wolff, the
German chemist, by carefnl analysis
found clover just in blossom to con
tain only 23 per cent, cf crude fibre,
bat when seed was fully formed, 48
per cent., showing the great rapidi
ty of change in the stalk, from sol
able to insoluble matter.
From these solid facts it appears
that grass at the first blossoming
contains all the nutriment that stalk
g|d seed both contain after ripening.
And ii follows, that if the farmer
tfdil cut his grass when its nutritive
clatter is most digestible, hit ani
mals will thrive as well upon it as.
upon ripe hay with a liberal allow
ance of grain. FVom a number of
tcperimeats upon Indian corn, we
4oand that if it were cut when the
darnel bad first taken form, and set
with the butts to damp earth, the
ear would ripen from the nutriment
■contained in the stalk, the kernels
foipg plump. It is thus certain
that those stalks contained all the
nutriment afterward forming the
'ffta'm. And com sown for fodder,
UUttt at the time of full tatielling,
rill contain all the nutriment of
ripened corn and ini* soluble and
<l(ge*tibte condition.! If stock farm
ed in the grass districts, where
gfain is not so easily raised, would
ulwayieat gras? in blossom, their
animal* might be kebl in fine condi
tion upon it alone. We have known
liberal quantities of milk to be given
Mfon clover and timothy hay alone,
but in all cases early cut.
Jane grass, which is considered
almost worthless for hay, is excel
lent for pasture, arid would be for
by if cut when in blossom. If
farmers would study all the different
grasses, sow only those that ripen
at the same time in the field and cut
them at the proper stage of maturi
ty, they would be able to give their
stock a greater variety of food and
ot the best quality. It must be
remembered that blossoming, every
day decreases the amount of digesti
ve nutriment and increases the In
digestible wood fibre. Prompt at
tention to this matter means stock
■n good condition next spring, but
delay means poor cows, poor colts,
boor calves and poor profits. —hive

to tell our brother bee-keepers of an

method, I have not seen it described

There a^e;< many- which
seem /over gen
eral practices, which are often
strongly urged, and which' seem to
be backed by the most unanswera
ble arguments, and in spite of att
their promising features, never seem
to make their way to public confi
dence. We have, for instance, dur
ing a long life in connection with
cor editorial career, noted, seeming
ly at times, a sort of excitement go
through the whole-agricultural press
In regard to the great value of mules
and oxen on the farm. There is
nothing too good to. be said about
them. The mule is a very strong
animal, he will live and grow fat on
food that any good-mannered horse
would sicken on. He will live long
er as well as work harder, and ae a
general thing his first cost is less
than the first cost of a good horse.
Then they are bright and easily
taught, and indeed will do many
things that are quite incomprehensi
ble to the spirit of a horse. Thirds
something like what these periodi
cal articles read. ■ And as for oxen,
they are patient, strong, endearing,
moderate feeders, aadthcn their
flesh is eatable, and a dead ox is of
ten worth more than a live horse.
Time and again have we read
these arguments, and time on time
have we known of periods when
people, convinced by them, purchas
ed and worked with them. But in
time both ox and mule get their dis
charge and the good old-fashioned
horse takes their places.
Jnst now W® s®® symptoms of a
breaking out of the periodical talk
about them. We are prepared at
onoe to agree with all that is to be
said in their favor; but yet we are
sure that all who buy them, for gen
eral farm purposes will in time sell
them again, and go on as before.
The fact is that the horse can do
all that others can do as a general
rule, and a great deal more in some
others; and where there is general
work to be done, one that will do
the most of them tolerably, is better
than a great many tools, each well
adapted to its particular end.—Ger
* Deficiencies lu Crops.
Last year the burden of our west
ern papers was what would be done
with the enormous crops. But the
discuss ion this year turns on anoth
er question. While last year we
were to be mined by a full crop,
ruin is this year to fo’low from its
absence. Perhaps after all these
statements are*from mere paragraph
ists and not from any one connected
with the soil. Every sensible farm
ser knows the difference between
having nothing to sell, and
raising so much that nobody wants
it. All businesses are under the
same law. and farming is no ex
ception. It is rare to bear an eastern
farmer speak much of these things.
He knows that there are fluctua
tions, and that of necessity they
must exist; and he guards against
this by not depending upon any one
crop. He . diversifies his labors;
no more think of depend
wholly on one thing than he would
ask Prof. Wise to permit.him to ac
company him in his balloon voyage
across the Atlantic. If his wheat is
poor, he is very likely to make it up
in an increased crop of hay; and if
the hay fails generally, the corn is
by so much the gainer. In this way
there is always some crop which is
just what ho Wants it to be, and so
“one with another” he always has
1 about the same average profits from

One great trouble with the Amer
ican beef is that the animals gat too
ranch exercise. Bren our staU fed
animals, are allowed to roam about
’ too much. But the worst feature of
all Is the fact that nearly all the beef
which is found in the market of otlf
great cities is driven thither on foot,

A correspondent of.. The Weekly
World asks fanners to give their
experience as to the advantages of
changing cows from one pasture to
another daring the' grazing season ;
that is, is it better the pasture be
in one field or in two or three, so
that there may be periodical chang
es into fresh feed. This matter de
serves the attention of graziers, and
some with extended experience
have emphatic opinions relative to
the matter, that it is far better that
there be no change, care being tak
en not to over-stock the pastures,
and to provide soiling material
(sowed corn, rye or oats) with which
to supplement the grazing in case
of drouth or the falling off of grass
supply from any cause. On the
other hand, others deem change es
sential, care being taken that it be
at regular intervale and at such in
tervals as not to allow too rank a
growth in th e fresh pasture, thereby
deranging the appetite and stomachs
of the animals.: Others think all
the change needed—and the
one to make—is from the pasture
in which the cows have foraged
during the day to another at night
after milking. Facts and figures,
the critical experience and observa
tion of our readers are solicited in
reference to this matter; for the
time is at hand when the arrange
ment ot pastures must be made for
the coming season, and those who
may be doubting what to do will
be glad to be aided to a conclusion
by the testimony of their brethren.
The farmer can live without the fa
vor of the public. The crops depend
upon, his industry and upon.the gen
tle rains and dews sent from;heaven.
