IIATCIIINU CHICKENS EAUI.Y.
Sitting hens are clearly annoying, wliero
this desire I nearly constant, vet I have, fcen
the time the first brootltnesi of a hen win
balled with great Joy. On Home occaloti,
especially with amateurs, early chicken aro
desirable, and that Is when the birds are In
tended for exhibition. Where egg alone
are the desideratum, a constant, broodltiCM
among the hens Is Intolerable. To avoid
lhj, the non-sitters should be cultivated. H
u really trying, when eggs are rl 30 or 33
cents per dozen to find the majority of your
hens down with the sitting fever at mid
winter. Yet the larger breeds will do It, no
matter how great the emergency, llroodlng
is contagious and where once Introduced
among a flock of Itrabmah", Is likely to af
fect all alike. Tho Infusion of Leghorn
blood remedies this evil to a great extent,
and increases the production of eggs. Where
sitters for early chicks are wanted.the llrahma
motber.by alt odd, Istobepreferred.notpnly
from the fact that elieU astcady sitter, but
from many other g -'nd qualities that she pos
sesses above all others. According to my t-.x-pcrlence,lhe
Light Ilralmm Is the more tract
aide, belug made quiet. The Partridge Oo
chlu hen is too sluggish and indifferent for
a good sitter. She breaks her egg, and
when her chicks hatch is liable to kill them
by the careless, clumsy manner in which she
got erns her movements.
For very early chicken', an Asiatic moth
cr is to be preferred before all others, as her
body Is larger and wanner (I nevi r found ar
titielal heat conducive to health and strength )
than the smaller bird, and this bodily warmth
is highly necessary at all seasonsof the year.
Sho posseos an ample coat of feathers,
which retains the warmth, and is calculated
to acccomodate and keep a large brood com
fortable. The mother that broods them
makes all tlie difference with the chicken,
not only at hatching time, but ever after.
Whero early sitters are required, allow the
llrahma a separate apartment from the non
sitter and there wilt bo found little difficulty
when eggs are to bo set. Where the non
sitters are allowed to associate with them
they soon break up any tendency to brood
ing, especially in cold weather. The smaller
breeds generally have ascendency and rule
the roost, if not tho rnn.t. The Drahmas are
quite low-minded fowls, and a roost two Indi
es from the ground suits theirtasie jint as
well as one ten feet high. Tho sitting hen,
should, where it can be done, always have
her nest on the ground, that she may walk
on and oft", and not be compelled to use "her
wings in going to and from the nest. A reg
ular sitter that means business seldom leaves
the nest oftencr than once in two or three
The first week of Incubation is the most
critical one, for then the embryo begins its
growth, and the tender life is sensitive. Any
undue chilliness at that period kills the
germ, and the egg becomes what is termed
rotten. If the sitter sliowa the right turn in
her movements and is set in tho same nest
wherein she dropped her eggs sb.6 will man
age affairs to best suit herself and her owner.
It is not necessary to provide extra feed for
her consumption, or put it in a place easy of
access. It is sufficient if it be kept in the
old runways; she will find it when needed.
Nature teaches the bird through instinct
how to take care of herself. Early chicks
require more care than the later ones. The
cost of rearing is greater, but the value also
Is Increased. The early chicle is apt to re
ceive a stunt and become dwarfed, but for
exhibition purposes, when grown without
l deformity, is valuable and highly prized.
Only the early birds become feathered arid
fully developed before the storms come on,
and therefore they must come from the shell
In the early spring months.
IMPORTANT Til FARMERS.
It is coming 'o be bettei understood that
success in farming depends far more upon
how much one gets per acre than upon the
number of acres ho cultivates If a man's
time, teams, seed, implements, etc, are
worth or cost $500 a year to cultivate fifty
acres, and the crops produced, whatever
tbey may be, are equivalent to twelve bush
els of wheat per acre, worth on a average fl
per bushel.he has just $100 left for interest of
the land, taxes, etc. If the crops equal fif
teen bushels of wheat per acre, he has $250
surplus for land, etc. If they are tqual to
twenty bushels per acre, he has $500 sur
plus; If twenty-live bushels per acre, he
has $850. Tho rule holds good for one hun
dred acres, or any other area. The great
question then is, how to increase the yield
per acre, with only the same cot for labor,
teams,lmplements and seed.
Omitting ihe question of drainage, and of
green, manures, and supposing the land in
proper dryness and tilth, there is no doubt
that a sufficient amount of the right kind ot
manure or fertilizers will secure this 8 to 13
bushels per acre increase.
Recent observations, careful experiments
and extensive chemical investigations, show
that our cultivated crop need for their beat
growth the presence of several substances.
Three or lour are seldom abunda.it in soils,
or are largely available in but few, and are
rapidly exhausted by the removal of crops.
Tno of these, for example, phosphoric acid
and nitrogen, aro itidispcnsible as plant food,
and to develop aud prepare other food
Lime acts like potash In feeding or prepar
ing food for plants.
Of these four substances, nitrogen, potash,
lime and phosphoric acid, some soils nod
crops want one, some want two aud some
want three, if not all of them. Good barn
yard manure invariably contains all of them.
Bo long as one can get enough of good barn
yard manure, cheaply and near enough to
the fields, that is all that is needed. With
It, if the other conditions of the soil, its
dryness and tilth or mecbaulcal condition,
be right, we can raise our crops from an
equivalent of 12 bushels of wheat to 20 or
25 or more bushels per acre.
But unless it be on farms mainly used in
stock raising, there is far from enough man
ure,good yard manure.to secure the higher
profits. And just here another question
comes in. If a soil lacks potash only, a
small quantity of this in the form oi potash
salts or of ashes, may be as useful as thous
ands of pounds of yard manure containing
only the same amount of potash. In that
ease we could buy and apply the potash
more cheaply than we could haul aud apply
tie manure to a field distant from the yard,
allowing the manure to cost nothing. If
the soil lacks only phosphoric acid for a
certain crop, a bag of superphosphate or
dissolved bones will supply more of It than
several tons of yard manure. If, then, we
can ascertain just what a field lacks, we
may find It very profitable to buy Ihe spec
lal fertilizer the soil wants, and use the yard
manure on such fields as need all it contain,
or on those heavy hoIIs where Its loosening
effect will be most useful, and where little
battling is requlrd. American Agriculture

Kvery family occupying a dwelling, In
country or village, and nearly every city
resident, can have and should have at least
one grape vine growing, not only to 'sit un
der,' but to eat the fruit of. Wherever there
is, within reach of mimo sunshine, a bit of
ground a foot or two wide nnd three or
mare feet long, there a vino may be planted,
trained for a long distance, on n fence, up
tho dwelling, on a trellis, or up a post. Its
abundant green follaire Is always grateful lo
the eye, and its clusters of cooling, pleasant
fruit need no advocate. The grape vine is
one of the most uncomplaining, tinfastldlous
and care rewarding plants. Keep standing
waler away from its leet, give It something
to eal to make stems, leaves ami fruit of,
with some sunlight part of the day, aud it
will go to work and keep at it as long as
you live No food suits it better than a
lot of boues, coarsely or finely broken, or
whole ones If there be enough of them, mix
ed In with the soil. It will fasten a net
work of roots or rootlets upon every bit of
of bone and extract nutriment as long as
there Is a parllcle of it left. All the train
ing it will need you ran give In a few min
utes before or after tea, once or twice a
month. It will p.ty In pleasure, in foliage,
In fin it.
Order the vine soon ; It can como or go
anywhere by mall; chooso the placo; as soon
as llie frost is well out of tlm ground dig it
up a foot or more deep ; mix in the soil n
peck or moro of crushed bones for each vine;
thoso from the butcher, broken up with a
hammer or axe-head, will answer. When
the vine arrives expose its roots as little as
possible to Ihe air ; make a hole, set it as
deep as It grew beforo j spread Its roots out
well each way ; cover them with earth, and
moisten If needed. That's all, until you
need to train its shooting stems. (Our
columns have told and will tell how that is
done) all the above Is a very simple mat
ter. Header, If you have not done so, take
our advice and plant, at least, one grape
vine this spring; better two, three, a dozen
of them, if you have the ground; plant at
least one, whether you live on Fifth aven

THE PEACH CROP A LARGE YIELD EX
PECTED. A Jliddletown, Delaware, telegram of the
24th ult. says : The prospect of the coming
peach season is at this time very flatterinir,
and every day adds to the assurance that
there will be the largest crop ot fruit ever
grown on the peninsula; 12,000,000 baskets
will not more than cover the present esti
mate. The estimated luxuriance of tie
coming crop is attributed by the beet judues
of peach culture to the close winter and
backward spring. The early fruit, the Hale's
Early and Troth's are now in full bloom.and
every twig and branch that is capable of be
ing occupied by a bud is filled to its utmost
capacity, and upon examination, the buds
are found to be in a thriving condition. The
falling off of some fruit will necessarily en
sue, which will enable the trees to sustain
and mature what is left to a state of perfec
tion very seldom attained. The Crawford's
Late and Reeves' Favorite eivo promise of a
very large fyield in the eastern portion of
Sussex county and will exceed tho last year's
crop which was very large. In Queene
Anne's county and Caroline, and on the
Eastern Shore, the trees are in a fine condi
tion, and undoubtedly will give a handsome
yield. Some of the largest fruit-growers of
these counties say the crop will be the larg
est known formany'years. Also in the Mary
land counties tbe orchards are all in a thriv
ing condition, nnd not in the least injured,
and the prospects were never better. In New
Castle county, where there were no peaches
last year, the production will probably equal
that of 1875. The prospects of Kent county
for an enormous yield were never better,

'Dls mon, he comes into my blace last
ight, und calls for peer and pologuy,' began
lid witness, as George Dart whs handed out
'I ain't tbe man,' replied the prisouer with
'No talking back,' said the court. 'Let
the witness tell what he hss to bhy, and
then you can have a chance.'

'Now, I'll tell you how it was,' aid tbe
prisoner. 'The beer was all Hunt, onlv tco
much vinegar in it, but that bologna had a
ten-penny nail in it, and when I shut my
teeth on it I broke two of 'cm on" aud it
nearly killed me. I refused to pay ol

'Und I haf it In my pocket, Shudite. und I

self from too story to basement, but the link
was missing. It had dropped by the way
side to be seen no more.

as he gave his body a last bearch.
'I'roiluce your hardware, cooly observed
'Although there Is a missing link in the
evidence,' remarked the court as he gathered
up the papers, 'it Is evident that the prisoner
was inclined to raise a row when be should
have accepted an explanation, I shall there
fore fine him $5.'
'Fiue me $5 becauso 1 couldn't bite
through a ten-penny nail 1' exclaimed tbe
'Dot is shust right, Shudge, shmt right,
chuckled the witness.
'This is a world ol accidents and surprises,
Mr. Dart, aud we should always be prepand
for cast-srou bolognas or oven stranger
things, and to gently demand explanations
iiiitcajof throwing beer tumblers. You will
have to pay or go up for thirty days.'
The prisoner trio I to borrow $5 of the
witness, aud failing in this he went up.
