The irklrfi' furl Importance of' ti
' Tho importance, of organizing among
farmers for the purposing of assisting
c'aoh other and oxcliangiiiir their ex
periences for tlio beMlefit of ono and nil
cannot bo loo strongly urged. As soils
differ so do tho methods of cultivation,
nd each year's oxpcrlonco convinces
,tuo farmer that, no mutter how observ
ing ho intiy havo been In tho past,
there is always something now present
ed and fresh ideas gained. It is only
'when farmers regularly meet, howover,
dnd present their different views, that
'mistakes aro corrected and better meth
ods employed.
There is" a class or f Armors who at
tach no importance to association, us
ually regarding tho teachings at tho
meetings as theory, when, in fact, tho
dlsoiissTons aro based on I'aots and prac
tical experience. Such farmort rtnnu
ally'wltndfls bolter crops on the farms
of their moro thoughtful neighbors
than on their own, and wonder why
they do not obtain as good results from
tho samo oropsj but In order to bo suc
cessful comparisons must bo" mado of
th6 proper times of planting, best vari
eties for tho section, methods of culti
vation and productiveness of all the co
Mais und garden vegetables that are
grown, to say nothing of tho systems
of. .ftioding and breeding of animals,
saving and application of raanuro and
usefulness of improved implements in
tended for farm service. Tho ralstako
of a singlo farmer may prevent suoh
liko, occurrence on tho part of a largo
number, and the beneficial results from
aotual experiments by an individual
may assist in obtainiug heavier yields
and greater profits for all.
. Ifarraora1 clubs can do moro than to
simply meet and discuss farm topics,
though If organized for nothing but
discussion tho benefits to each individual
would bo1 groat t but an organization
based upon the welfaro of the agrioul
tdralt"pqmmunity in which it exists can
oMrjxperfmijiits rouon farther than
tho efforts of:a singlo individual. With,
but little expbnso to-each, now and im
proved agricultural Implements can be
placed in service on a co-operative sys
tem, and tho saving in expense from'
tho uso of theso would moro than ro
pay any outlay in tho way of purcha
ses. Thoroughbred stock can bo moro,
oajily introduced into, tlie community
b -united,? effort, and tho stock could
bo oITtfio best,: owing to the unlimited
meafcti for' procuring it that corabina-i
tion may easily furnish. The introduc
tion of a singlo thoroughbred animal
sometimes adds thousands of dollars to
tho value of stock, as was done by'
Messenger, tho founder of our trotting1
strain of horses. By organization tho
facilities for marketing crops arc in
creased, tho expenses of transportation
lessened, higher pricos obtained from'
sales and the business of the whole
managed by one person in selling rath
or than by all. There is no limit to
tho usefulness of farmers' clubs; and
such 'clubs are beneficial in exact pro
portion as the farmers make them so.
No farmer should expect the club to
prove, 4 success without his individual
aid, nor should any farmer i ef rain from
imparting Ins experience on any sub
ject that ho is familiar with, nor lose
any oportunity of adopting and prac
ticing those methods Unit.
successful when tried by others. It
cha9been'ddni"onjt'ratdd by comparison
''thjit.' in all agricultural communities
where farmers' clubs exist there is a
steady and continued improvement in
the system practiced, and not only aro
the: profits greater but knowledge and
interest ih the pursuit of farming aro
correspondingly increased.
There is no good reason why a family
living on a lot of half an acre should

apple trees, half dozen pear trees, half

and two dozen currant bushes, and a
smart man will plant them all out nice

pear trees will begin to bear, if stand

real, truo, interest of the lovers of tino

our fellow citizoes all over the countv
to make a heroio exertion to plant fruit

The liaising of Poultry.
It is a very easy matter in oxperi
inctitiiiir ivilli poultrv. ns with nnv oth
cr enterprise, to fool away a good deal
of monoy In "outfits" not needed at the
beginning, such ns exponsivo hen
houses, costly patonted appointments,
high priced premium birds, etc., all of
which aro of little worth to tho novice,
until lid knows, from experience, how
to turn nil tlmse showy adjuncts to
profit, therefore our ndvlco to begin-1
tiers is to consider well what they nro
nboiit to embark in. itoaii somo good
reliable journal or book, giving a the
oretical understnndiuQ- at least, about
the beginning of tho business. It is a
good business, a pleasant occupation,
an interesting rural work to ehgago in,
if well followed, and properly appreci
ated and managed, otherwise not.
As to tho best birds to try, this is
ono of the hardest questions to answer,
but in any event start with but ono va
riety the novice should never attempt
to breed moro thnn ono kind. If he
insists in trying two or thrco kinds, it J
only goes to show Mint no knows two
or three times less than ho thinks he
does, and at tho end of u year or two
ho will bo disgusted with tho business
and somo ono will havo an opportunity
to furnish fowls cheap, and they will
have neither ono thing .or tho other
that will amount to anything.
Begin witli one sort, then, no mat
ter what tho Bort is as long as that sort
suits the fancy, breed them in their
purity, tnko good care of both old and
young, and you will bo likelyi at tho
end of tho first year, to know enough
about raising poultry to advantage1.
When you aro posted try a second va
riety if you choose, and when you nre
thoroughly interested you will bo con
tent with a singlo variety to look after.
Tho great error with tho majority is
they atlcmpt at the outset to do too
much, thus they pay too dear for tho
Again, the question of numbers is an
important one and depends largely
upon the amount, of space that can bo
devoted to their accommodation. Nev
er have more than from forty to fifty
at tho most under one roof, and better
less than thirty in ono building unless
it bo a large one s they cannot' livo and
remain healthy when crowded together
in great numbers, tho effluvia from their
bodies generates disease, lico and fevers.
Upon limited premises, a dozen or
twenty may bo kept comfortably, but
the day you crowd fifty to ono hun
dred fows or chicks into ono house you
will find that they will begin to fall off
in laying, the birds will get' siok, ver
min will congregate in myriads about
their roosts, in their nests nud upon
their bodies then farewell to your
poultry keeping for profits. Too many
in ono house, don't attempt it. You
will lose your time, your monoy, your
fowls and your patienco. This is true.
They must be kept in small lota, on
any place on tho farm big or little, and
spparated from any other community.
In conclusion wo would urge all to
get good, pure bred stock. Begin wi'.h
ono sort at first, feed and water recu-
laily and judiciously, house them warm'

Time for Grafting. I
Tho grafting of apple, pear and piuraj
trees will begin about tho 20th of
March, aud if the scions are, carefully,
preserved it can be continued up into'
and through May, as wo know from
our own experience. As wo have
oiten said, grautng is a vory easy,
operatton wiien ouce understood, and
the knowledge, is readily acquired on
observing it being done by others. In'
fact, every farmer and garduer should,
do his own grafting, which will take
up no time required, by other duties. A
sharp penknife for shaping tho graft,
a slioe makers knite lor splitting the,
stem, and a fine saw forremoving tho)
top of the stock aro indispensable.!
Splitting the bark so that it shall not
be bruised, suaping the scion wedgo;
fashion botli ways, and placing tho;
rim of the wood of both stock and
scion exactly together, bo that tho sap,
can intermingle, and then properly'
wuxeu, mere is no uanger oi iaiiure.
We make a "shoulder ' to tho scion aud
think it adds tho certainty of succeedi
ing. It probably weakens it . a little,
but wo havo never found it any disad-.
vantago. We prefer also two eyes or
buds to a scion and would rather have
only ono than moie than two. One
year's wood should always bo taken
when it can be obtained as it is moro
certain to "take aud to grow- moro
vigorously, and the scion should be cut
from bearing branches.
We wish agaiu to remind thoso in
preparing their grafting wax, that wo
takeowf parts of rosin, one .part of
beeswax and one part of beef tallow,
as the proper proportions for
making a satisfactory wax. Melt them
together in a skillet, (which is best,) or
a tincup, and stir well. It should re
main in tho vessel and bo used when
needed. Twenty or thirty grafts can
bo waxed with one heating up. When
much grafting is' to bo done, a little
fire lor warming tho mixture should be
made on the spot, between two bricks
or stones. Apply the wax with a small,
thin paddle ; and in two or three weeks
go over the grafts and close up any!
opening in the waxing caused by the
wina on tno spins.
There aro many receipts for inakiug
grafting wax, and we have tried most
of them, and found some of tbem to bu
very good, but wo prefer our own, as
being the simplest to prcparo and an
swering the purpose well. Applying
it warm or hot does no injury to tho
scion. The object to attaiirin tho pro-
!juriiuu id mai, mu wax win not oracic
n cool, dry, windy weathor, or run in
warm weather. If, however, on trial
different proportions bo required, the
foregoing .can be altered in order to
mako the wax thinner or stiffer, though
after UBiug tho wax iu several wayH
wo havo come back to theso as meeting
saiisiactoruy ail the requirements.
