and in estimating Its vnluo tlicro must
bo considered tho coat of tlio manuro

from tho barnyard to tlio field (ot

pectedfrom tho manuro by tho appar

content themselves with tlio fact that
thoy frequently turn undor a sod,
which is equivalent, in their opinion, to
Plowing under a crop, however, is
n different matter from turning over a
sod. A sod leaves a mellow, fiuo soil,
wnion is always ucfurable, but a crop
noconiy carries Willi it all that may bo
derived from turning undor tho sod,
but lightens the soil, aud adds doublo
tho amount of fertilizing matter, as
oompared with that carried under with
tho sod. Another point to bo observed
is mat soa land is never plowed until
tho crop has matured that is, borno
seed, and taken everything from tho
soil required by tho leaves, stems and
roots. When green manorial crops aro

tlio orop. If, however, a crop is do-
sirca, mo giass may bo cut as soon as
it (lowers, aud tho second crop may be
allowed to grow up for manure. Tho
consequence will bo that oxponso is
saved in hauling, loading nnd material;

bo a saving of labor in destroying

land after each plowing thero will bo

ting process will bo performed moro
speedily and tho bcuofil increased. It
may bo inquired in what tnannor tho
grass makes tho soil moro fertile by
merely restoring, tho elomonta it ro
ccives from tho soil. Tho grass, while
ucnvmg nourishment iirst oporatcs on
the insoluble- mineral substances and
returns them to tho sod in an available
condition along with other fertilizing
material appropriated from tho rains
and atmosphere, Green manuring not
only iucreasos tho fertility of tho soil,
but reduces it to a mechanical condi
tion far superior to that effected by im
plements ; and it is safe to assert that
during the period of growth the shad
ing of the soil adds largely to the ad
vantages secured by tho land from tho
growth of tho manurial crops.
The Cultivation of Quinces.
Within a few years tho raising of
quinces has beoomo moro popular, and
wo notico that far moro attention is
paid in cultivating them. Formerly it
was tho fashion, at least in this section
of Pennsylvania, to sot out tho trees,
frequently in grass, or nllow grass to
grow thickly around them, nnd then
let them faro tho best thoy could. Tho
result is that, after bearing a fow knot
ty specimens for a few years, tho bot
tom of tho stem is riddled with tho
worm and tho tree gradually dies with
it, and ho at onco declares that quinco
raising won't do in this section. Tho
truth, however is. that quincos can bo
grown hero as woll as apples or pears,
and with quito as littlo trouble. The
treo takes up little room, and can be
placed in almost any out of tho way
corner, but kept clear of undergrowth
and tho ground stirred up occasionally.
In fact they should have about tho
same treatment as dwarf pears. Tho
worm must of courso bo sought for two
or thrco times a year, pursued in their
runs with a pieco of wire ; or cut out
with a strong sharp pointed knife, and
tho place well dosed with salt, as well
as tho surfaoe of tho ground nearly to
tho extent of tho branches. Tho lives
of trees, properly cared for, may last
from ten to hftccn years ; but our own
practiuo has been, Ayhen ono planting
of trees should show signs of decay, to
set out another, in order that by tho
timo tlio first runs out its usefulness,
tho other will havo come fully into
boaring. Tho quinco treo is an early
boarcr, and, when covered with large,
smooth geldon specimens, is a beauti
ful sight. It is trno tho fruit it not of
any considerable valuo, as it can bo
used only for preserving in somo fash

Tho limo for potting plants
that havo been scl out through
tho summer is now at hand. A writer
in tho Nc. England Farmer gives
somo suggestions on this subject Hint
may bo of benefit to our waders. Jle
says that in cultivating plants in pots,
it is important to manaco m 'suoli
manner as to scouro tho full benefit of
tho soil contained in tho pot. In or
der to do this, it is necessary to put
tho young plant in a small pot at liret,
Tho roots extend horizontally till they
rcucn uw smes oi mo nor, nnu tuou
ramify alone tho sides, but do not turn
back to permeate tho soil in the centro
of tho pot. This is an importat point
to bear in mind in managing pot plants
In order to havo tho earth in tho pot
wen nnod with roots trom centro to
circumference, placo in a small pot
nrst. when the roots havo hllod tho
ontor layer of soil with their fibres.
then chango to a pot slightly largor in
size, till tho additional spaco around
tho ball of earth with cood soil and al
low tho roots to fully occupy that
space Thus tho plant can bo changed
Horn ono pot to another, gradually in
creasing tho size, and thus sccuro tho
complete occupancy of tho soil bv
roots. In regard to this method a
writer says : Tho system of potting
is ono of the essential parts of green-
houso culture, and wherein occurs a
great difference between amateur and
professional growers. Tho amateur is
ant to ovcrpot, that is, to. Bhift his
plaut from a small pot into a largo one
thinking that the more soil ho furnish
es tho greater will bo tho luxuriance of
growth. Tho professional usually shifts
his plant from ono pot to another but
littlo larger, well knowing that tho
luxurianco of growth must como not
so much from tho quantity of soil fur
nished as from tho amount occupied.
Tho most superficial observer must
havo noticed tho network of roots in
contact with tho sides of tho pot, and
tho comparative oocunancv of tho in-
torior areas, and tho difficulty found in
practioe of turning back their roots so
as to have a completo soil occupancy. If
now theso strata of earth bo added suc
cessively to tho circumference of these
matted roots, moro soil will bo occupied
than if tho sarao amount of earth had
been added in ono thick stratum.
Plants usually bloom best after the
roots havo well filled tho earth and be
come a littlo cramped or bound by tho
mass oi mem.

iN lU'IDKJIIO OF IIYDROPHOHIA ON AN
Eijfaula, Ala., Aug. 28. The noo-
plo in this neighborhood aro in a stato
of tremendous excitement over tho
wholesale spread of livproiiliobin ou
tho plantation of Punch Doughtie. Dr.
E. H. Johnson has just returned lrom
Mr. Doughtio's plantation, whoro bo
had been summoned. Ho found thirtv-
two persons suffering with a disenso
which ho at onco pronounced hydro
phobia in a mild form. All tho suffor
crs wero negroes. Thrco of them aro
desperately siok, ono being in tho
throes of delirium, and so low that tlio
Doctor says lie is liable to dio at any
Moro than three weeks airo a lioiz
bitten by a dog died on Mr. Doughtio's
plantation and tho carcass was given to
tho negroes to bo converted into soap
grease. Instead of utilizing it for this
purpose thirty-two negroes on the
placo nnd in tho neighborhood ato tlio
nesn oi mo hog.
Mr. Doughtio savs that on Julv 251h
one of his dogs went mad tnd bit a
mulo nnd several hogs. On August
13th tlio first hog died, and was eaten
by tho negroes. Two moro died on
August 18th, ono on August 22nd and
ono on August 27th, and all wore oaten
except tho last, when tho partakers of
tho poisoned flesh becamo sick. Tho
mulo exhibited signs of madness on tlio
nineteenth day after being bitten.
Eloven days after tho first hog was
eaten ten of tho negroes wero taken
sick. Two days ago another dog was
discovered to bo mad, and was killed
attcr having bitten a mulo. Another
dog on tho lot is now housed, and will
bo experimented witli for a euro. Tho
dog that bit tho mulo and hogs disap
peared, and tho whole neighborhood Is
in terror lest ho went among cattlo and
hogs throughout tho belt boforo dying.
A dozen of tho thirty-two eaters of
tho affected hogs are seriously sick,
and tlio developments among tho others
are awaited with tho greatest Interest
Dr. Johnson, an nblo physician, says
that it is n terrible oauo nnd that ho
fears tho worst. Ho Bays that it would
not surprise him if tho greater number
of tho thirty-two persons should die.
A fow days ago Mr. Doughtio rodo
out, at tho request of a field hand, to
inspect tho condition of ono of his
mules, which was acting strangely. On
reaching tho pasture whero a dozen
mules were, tho animal Mr. Doughtie
was riding neighed, which attracted
tho attention of tho othor anlmnls, nnd
tho sick ono particularly, which imme
diately rushed on tho mulo aud ridor,
and soized the saddlo of tlio animal
with his teeth. Mr. Doughtio dis
mounted and sucooeded in loosoning
tho mad mule's hold, but no sooner
was this douo than the infuriated beast
turned upon his owner, who fled for
his life, pursued by tho mulo. There
was a desporato raco of a quarter of n
mile through undergrowth, and Mr.
Doughtio only saved himself by dodg-
ing around saplings. A small strotch
of clearing intervened between tho
woods and tho house, nnd tho terrified
man took a Jifo-and-deatli ohanco on
making it. Heforo leaving tho woods
tho mulo had bitten out n pieco of Mr,
Doughtio's coat, aud while mamau-

reached the top of tho fenco tho mulo
overtook him on a dead run. but in
Mund of reaching his victim slruek his
head against n fence post in n wild
rush and wns knocked senseless. Tho
mulo was afterward killed by Mr.
It is now rf porled that tho whol

however, sufficed, and tho conductor

the old gentleman and could
not forego tho desire to speak to
him. With a sad faco and a trembling
