'7IDNESDAY MORNING, Mar. 3, '69
Time to Cut Timber.
Vis now some twenty years since we
st urged the importance of season
ing timber as speedily as possible af
ter cutting, to insure its durability ;
and asa consequence recommended
the middle or. latter part of summer
as the best time—the seasoning being
rapid in the warm air and under the
hot sun. We have at that time ex
amples where timber cut, and split or
sawed immediately after cutting, last
ed twice as long as when out in win
ter, and allowed to season slowly, and
at a time when it is apt to become sap
rotten to some degree before the seas
oning process can be perfected. We
are glad to see corroborative evidence
coming in from all quarters in proof
of the correctness of this position. In
the proceedings of the Alton Horti-
ticultural Society of a late date, we
are informed that Dr. Long exhibited
samples of timber cut at different
times, and after experimenting for
years, is convinced that from the 10th
of July to the first of August is the
best time to cut timber. Mr. Sidway
remarked at the same meeting that
he commenced many years ago cut
ting timber for the bark, and he had
observed that when timber for rails
had the bark peeled off so as to season
rapidly, it lasted much longer, Mr.
Snedeker endorsed the same views,
having found by actual trials that
summer-cut timber was much the
most durable. Dr. Hull had found
hickory excellent for posts, if cut and
peeled in summer.
We may add that we know a differ
ent conclusion to be adopted, by sim
ply doing the thing in the wrong
way. Timber was cut in summer
and allowed to lie in the log with
the bark on. It could not thus
become seasoned; and the heat in
duced what is termed sap-rotting more
rapidly than would have occurred in
the cold of winter. The experiment
er was satisfied that "summer was the
worst time to cut,"—merely became
he omitted to split and saw at once so
as to favor seasoning.—Country Gen
What will be the Future Price of
The Chicago Tribune dsicusses, "the
future of wheat," and after going
over the whole field, comes to the fol
lowing conclusion : Present indica ,
tions are not in favor of higher pri
ces. The price of the article is again
falling in Liverpool and London, ow
ing to the arrival of large fleets of
grain -laden vessels from the Orient
regions. Odessa is pouring in wheat,
and the neighboring ports are sending
forth their grain in numerous vessels,
while the news comes that California
has a very large surplus crop, which
she must export and promises to do
greater things next season,
The only hope for higher prices lies
in that of a poor crop in 1869. Here,
again, the balance of testimony is
against it. The weather of the pres
ent winter has been peculiarly favor
able to spring sowing, and the indica
tions are that the greater portion of
the next crop will be sown in March,
which is generally looked on as in
suring a bounteous yield. The only
kind of wheat likely to be injured by
the weather is that sown in the fall.
But the proportion of winter wheat is
now very small, and grows smaller
each year. Not a bushel of winter
wheat has been sold in our market for
the past three months, and flour made
therefrom is a drug with our dealers.
The manufacture of spring flour has
been so much improved within the
past two or three years that it answers
1.9.0 far, then, there appears to be no
very cheering prospect for the advo
cates of high prices. The best thing
that holders can do is to prepare to
look their losses in the face as grace
fully as may be, and decide to let go,
lest the chance of selling be denied ix
toto. The supply is too abundant to
admit of a scarcity, and sellers to the
great world of consumers are too nu
merous to admit of the holders being
able to dictate in the matter of pri
LARGEST STEER IN THE WORLD.-
- There is a white steer, aged six years
and six months, belonging to Samuel
•H. Jones, of Sangoman county, .111.,
that is six feet six inches high ; nine
feet-six inches in length ; ten feet six
'inches around the girth ; three feet
across :the hips ; and weighs three
thousand and 600 pounds! He is a
cross of the "Short-horn Durham"
and the "Patton" stock.
An excursion party was made up re
cently, at Springfield, with the ex
pressed purpose of visiting this mon
ster beast twelve miles from that place
at Williamsburg. The party, on their
arrival, appointed a committe. of Col.
White, of Sangamon county, and our
fellow citizen, A. W. Bothwell, Esq.,
to take the exact measurement of this
.steer, which they did, with the above
result. We derive these facts from
Mr. A. W Bothwell, one of the com
mitteemen, and therefore they may be
relied upon as correct. Mr, Jones has
been effered $1,500 for this steer, but
refused to sell. He purposes increas
ing its :weight to 4,000 pounds, when
he is to receive two thousand dollars
We challenge the whole world to
produce a steer equal in size And
weight to the one deseribed.—_Ameri

The Mercer Potato.
We have never belived that the
Mercer potato had "run out," as we
have seen a thousand times declared.
We believe that all that is necessary
to restore it to its pristine excellence
and productiveness is a change of
seed, and that if seed were obtained
directly from New England, and if
from Maine the better, there would
have been no deterioration of either
quality or quantity. If farmers will
continue to plant year after year, and
we have known many to do so for 20
years, the same potato raised by them
selves, and the small ones at that; l i
they can expect nothing else than the
steady falling off of the crop, and a
lower grade as to excellence of tuber.
The same is the case with wheat, rye,
corn and oats, every farmer well
We are led to these remarks from
seeing a statement made to the far
mers' Club of New York, by Mr. N.
C. Jessup, of West Hampton, Long
Island, in which he says, in present
ing some specimens of the Mercer po ,
toes raised by him, that he obtained
the seed four years ago from Maine,
that he had cultivated them on bar
ren sands and had realized at the rate
of three hundred and thirty-five bush
els per acre. They had not rotted,
but continued to be as sound as any
potato can be.
The Mercer potato has never been
excelled in point of quality in this re
gion., and we have known over three
hundred bushels per acre, in a field of
three or four acres, to he raised in
Germantown. Nobody for more than
a quarter of a century ever dreamed of
planting any other variety; and we
have no reason to doubt, had the mis
take not been committed in replanting
the potatoes raised upon the same
premises, but planted seed from a dis
tance, the Mercer might have been as
good to-day as ever it was. The trial
of Mr. Jessup, as stated above, shows
what he did with it last season. Why
should not others try? Why pay
enormous prices for new kinds about
which next to nothing is known ex
cept from the puffs of those who are
making a good thing out of them ?
WHAT FARMERS CANNOT CONCEAL.
—A poor farmer cannot conceal the
fact that he is a poor farmer. All his
surroundings proclaim the verdict
against him ; his horses, cattle, wag
ons, harness, plows,fences, fields,even
his wife and children bear silent but
unmistakable evidence against him.
On the other had, all these things
will testify favorably on behalf of the
good farmer. Every passer by can
read the evidence pro or con. This
fact, alone, ought to : timulate every
farmer to do his best, for the sake of
his own character, as well as interest.;
for he may rest assured that every
passer by will pronounce judgment ac
cording to the evidence.
CHICKEN CHOLERA.-A correspon
dent of the Department of Agricul
ture, writing from lowa, says :
"My chickens have been dying with
cholera for the last two years,—even
turkeys have died of the same disease.
When I notice the fowls begin to
droop and look sleepy, 1 give them
three or four tablespoonsful of strong
alum water, and repeat the same the
next day. I also mix their feed with
strong alum water, feeding twice a
day for two or three days—:afterwards
once a week. Since commencing this
practice I have not lost any.
HOG CHOLERA. —A correspondent
of the Maine Farmer, in answer to an
inquiry as to the cause and cure of
worms of pigs, writes :
" If the writer will take the pains
to give his pigs a handful of good
rock salt twice a week in their food,
until killing time, I think the pies
will thrive, providing he gives them
enough to eat. The cause of pigs hav
ing worms, is, I think, the want of the
preventive—salt. Pigs hardly ever
get any salt except what they get in
the slops from the kitchen."
A _FRENCH FARM.—The most ex—
tensive farmer in France is M. de
Candain. His farm in Tonraine is
valued at two million francs, and the
income be derives from it considerably
above 500,000 a year. He sells, every
year, one thousand head of fat cattle,
and has on his farm a distillery,a beet
and starch sugar manufactory, a large
linen and woolen factory, and all
his factories and farm buildings are
lighted with gas. His farm is said to
be the most productive in Europe.
CURE FOR COLIC IN HORSES.—The
death of Robert Bonner's Auburn
horse induces a New-Yorker to send
the Tribune a remedy which he has
never seen fail to cure colic in horses..
It is simply to drench them with a
preparation of chlorine and perman
ganic acid, which can be procured at
any drug store. He hhs used it and
seen it used repeatedly, and has so
much confidence in it that he would
be willing to insure the recovery of
any horse if it was administered in
- CURRANT bushes may be pruned
this month with advantage. Don't be
afraid of cutting out too much, Leave
only healthy, strong wood of two sum
mers' growth, and your fruit will be
larger and almost as much in
quantity. A very pretty way of train
ing is to stretch wires from posts set
about twelve feet apart, and tie the
stalks fan -shaped to them. In this way
the currant makes a beautiful border
for a path, and also a pleasing cover
for an unsightly fence.
