TUB MISSIONARY AND THE TIGER.
AY 11 pious Missionary was travelling
through tho Jungle, ho chanced to observe
a Leopard lying under a Plantain Tree.
Being undeslrous of intruding upon the
animal's privacy, he made a wide detour.and
was so unfortunate as to encounter beneath
a lofty Bamboo a Tiger. "What do you
here?" demanded tho fierce Animal, in an
angry, voice. "It is rather I who should
ask that question," replied the Missionary,;
"for I kft you, but a moment sinco beneath
that Plantain, and now here you aro again,
whereas the Scripture expressly teaches yuu
that the Leopard cannot change his spots."
"It does," replied the Tiger; but I am a
creature of quite another stripe." So say
ing he sprang upon the. Missionary and de

" THE OSTRICH AND THE HEN.
An Ostrich and a Hen chanced to occupy
adjacent apartments, and the former com-
plained loudly that her rest was disturbed
by tho cackling of her humble neighbor.
"Why is it," she finally asked the Hen',
"that you mako such an intolerable noise?"
The Hen replied, "Because I have laid nn
egg." "0, no," said tho Ostrich, with a
superior smile, "it is because you are a Hen
and don't know any .better,"

The Improveif Poultry.
U is now pretty ceocrnlly admitted by
most western farmers that tho improved
poultry pays as well In proportion ns tho liu
proved breeds of hogs nnd sheep ; that is on
general principles. Of co'urso the great
mass of poultry is raised nnd sold by the
farmers. Tho car-londs of poultry and eggs
shipped from nil over tho West como from
tho farmere, and since tho Introduction of
the Improved breeds tho supply Is rapidly
Increasing. No farmer can longer nflbrd to
ralw tho common chickens. If you can't
havo all full bloods, got n thoroughbred
rooster, either a Cochiu or Ilrahma, and you
.will bo so well pleased with the cross that
you will soon work into full bloods. They
mature quicker, grow larger, sell for more
money, lay more eggs, but require, a Httlo
more care., With warm, clean, comfortable
quarters, a variety of food, not too much
corn, nnd eggs may bo had all winter.
Enterprising farmers who have not already
got tho Improved breeds of poultry on their
farms, at present, should now prepare suita
ble quarters for n few of these popular and
profitable pets, for you will bo suro to get
tho poultry fever If you attend the fall fair;
but when you get the Improved breeds, don't
try to get fancy prices unless you propose
going into it, and take five or ten years to
learn how to breed them successfully, and
get a reputation as an experienced breeder.
It will pay better to leavo that alone to the
professional breeders, but, as farmers, raise
poultry nnJ eggs to sell. But you don't
like to kill theso fine chickens ; only keep
out of them tho best for breeding, and sell
them just as you did the others nnd you
will find It will pay you ono per cent, better
to raise improved breeds of poultry for mar
ket than the old barn-yard variety.
Cost of Production. Farmers aro gen
erally beginning to realize that this Is the
great pivotal question on which their suc
cess or failure most depends. Until quite
recently tho importanco of this subject has
been comparatively overlooked, and there is
even now scarcely ono farmer in fifty who
can tell with any accuiacy or certainty what
his cereals when harvested have cost per
bushel, or what his poultry, beef, mutton
and pork have cost per pound. For this
slovenly modoof husbandry there is neither
necessity nor excuse, and there is probably
no other legitimate busiuesi wlicrciu such
indifference to tho main question would be
It is very certain that farmers will here
after find it necessary to mako a point of
ascertaining the actual cost per bushel of
their wheat and corn. Whenever they do
this they will bo surprised to find that in
the very act of doing it they are already
reducing the cost. One reason why these
products have hitherto cost too much is be
cause nobody seems to know how much they
do cost. Examination sheds light, and light
ispels ignorance. Then let tho discussion
of this subject go forward. It is evident
that farmers have struck the key note that is
to inaugurate a new era in their calling.
iVftcr a careful study of the subject for sev
eral years, and as the result of some exper
ience and observation, wo are confident
there is a point in tho cost of production
lower than any yet reached in this country,
and which lies practically within tho reach
of a majority of farmers. It would bo easy
to show that tho present average cost of
production for the whole country might be
reduced in tho present state at least ton per
Maxims for Farmers. It is worth
while for all farmers everywhere to remem
ber that thorough culture is better than
three mortgages on their farm.
That an offensive war against weeds is
five times less expensive than a defensive
That good fences always pay better than
lawsuits with neighbors.
That hay is a great deal cheaper mado in

I have noticed a great difference between
the treatment that farmers give their cattle
when they go in at an open door upon the
barn-floor, where they are nt wanted. It is
natural for animals to be looking out for
something good to eat, and we cannot ex
pect them to show moro judgment than we
do, and not go in at an open door, when we
have not order enough to shut it. One man
will tako a pitchfork, perhaps, and run for
the animal with a yell, frighten it badly, and
strike It with the fork or a club, perhaps
cause it to slip on tho ico at tho door, lame
or seriously injure it. The farmer in this
case is not only injuring his own property
but is cultivating a bad temper, which is
worse than the Injury to the animal, I have
seen others, in such a cose, treat tho animal
kindly, cail It out with a gentle voice, and,
having nothing to fear, it obeys without ex-
peeling a pounding, Ourdomeslio animals
are given to us for our good, aud wo should
treat them with the same kindness that we
should wish from a superior to us. Some
managers of animals appear nearly as bru
tal as tho animals they rule over. The farm
er whose cattlo pay the best profit looks
carefully to all their wants, and is never
cruel even to his brutes. Ex.
Plant Wiiitk Corn, Qcntlemei' who
have during the present season purchased
some 80,000 barrels of corn in this county,
urge upon us the propriety of advising the
farmers to plant white corn. Thry say It is
not only worth mote in tho market, but will
yield 16 per cent, more than yellow corn.
Yellow com, they say, contains about four
teen peunds of cob to the bushel, while
white will average but little over twelve
pounds. They art satisfied that the yield is
richer and the cultivation moro profitable.
The information is valuable to farmers just
now, as corn planting time is near at hand,
avd it would be well for them to avail them
selves of It, Jicehamje,
Pruning, This is generally supposed to
be the pruning season. Orchard trees gener
ally get too much pruning. In young trees
only thin out so as not to havo tho main
leaders crossing or interfering with one
mother. Or when a few shoots grow much
stronger than the rest cut these away, In
toi.it on all the branches in young trees grow
ing only on a perfect equality, On older
treei which have ben bearing a number of
years it will often benefit to cut off a largo
jxirtion of tho bearing llinus. lly a long
series of hearings, branches will often get
barked around and stunted, preventing the
free passage of the sap which seems to revenge
itself by forcing out vigorous shoots a long
way down from the top of the tree. It is
down to the vigorous shoots that we would
cut the bearing branches away, One must
his own Judgment as to the ndvUublllty
of this. If the tree bears as fine aud lus.
clous fruit as ever, of course no such severe
work need be done, but If not, now is the
time, Jwrnal of JgricuUvre.
