DO FARMERS STUDY ENOUGH
The subject of agriculture is one that
demands fully as much attention at the
hands of the public as it gets. Indeed no
theme presents itself that is fraught with
more real import, so lar as regards our
prosperity, than the wants of the agricul
tural world. What we mean by attention,
irstactrms, cnrinrl34lM -- roir — the best
way of accomplishing certain desired re
ults, not a superficial investigation of
some theory merely for the purpose of
screating difference and provoking discus
sion. The day has happily passed when
being a farmer is synonymous with being
a blockhead. It requires something more
that physical strength to keep up with the
advance of the age in farming as well as
science. Many of the systems years ago
are no wore applicable to the demand of
to-day than would be an ox-team to run
an opposition freight line across the plains,
The farmer wht reads much, and reads
the much with care, is the one who stands
in advance in intelligence and prosperity.
Science can aid the farmer in raising
wheat or corn just as much as it can aid
the miller in grinding it; and the science
to be applied in agriculture is nothing
more than a study of the composition of
soils and the properties that are drawn
from them by certain grains.
VALUE OF APPLES FOR FOOD,
The Western Rural says: There is
scarcely an article of vegetable food more
widely useful and more universally liked
than the apple. Why every farmer has
not an oarched, where the trees will grow
at all, is one of the mysteries. Let very
housekeeper lay in a good supply of ap
ples and it will be the most economical in
vestment in the whole range of culinaries.
A raw, mellow apple is digested in au
hour and a half, while boiled cabbage re
quires five hours. The most healthful de
sert that can be placed on the table is a
baked apple. If eaten frequently at break
fast with coarse bread and butter without
flesh of any kind, it has admirable effect
on the general system, often removing con
stipation, correcting acidities, and cooling
off febrile conditions more effectually than
the most approved medicines. If. families
could be induced to substitue apples—
sound and ripe,—for pies, cakes and sweet
meets, with which their children are too
frequently stuffed, there would be a di,
minution in the sum total of doctor's bills
in a single year, sufficient to lay in a stock
of this delicious fruit for the season's use.
TO TRAIN A HORSE TO STAND.
The American Stock Journal contains
the following directions : "Take your horse
on the barn floor and throw a strap over
his back and fasten it to his right fore
foot; lead him along and say 'whoa,' at
the same time pull down the strap, which
throws him on three feet and make him
stop suddenly. This is the way known to
teach whoa, though you can put on the
war bridle; and say whoa, and give hint a
sharp jerk that will stop him about as soon
as the strap to the foot. Then put him
in harness, with the foot-strap, as directed
under the head of 'training to harness,'
and drive him to the door. The moment
he undertakes to move take his foot and
say whoa. Get in your carriage and get
and get out again; rattle the thills, make
all the noise getting in and out you can ;
give him to understand, by snatching his
foot each time he moves, that he must
stand untill you tell him to go; and after
a few times you can put the whole family
in the carriage and he won't stir out of
FEED HAY CAREFULLY.
There are hundreds of tons of hay bit
every winter among farmers by careless
feeding. We have been astonished some
times when witnessing the amount wasted
around barnyards and stacks. This waste
is entirely unnecessary, and if it was
made the rule of every farmer to feed any
kind of stock upon the ground, thousands
of dollars might be saved annually. There
are times, to be sure, when the earth is
frozen dry and eelan, but if racks are not
provided, full one-half of the time the hay
will be dealt out either in wet, snow or
mud, and a good portion lost
Portable racks should be used around
stacks, and their location changed every
few days; the racks should be so construct
ed that the stock can get their feed hand
ily, and at the same time made so that the
hay cannot be pulled out and trampled un
Take a shin of beef weighing about six
pounds, chop the bone in two or three
pieces, and lay in a kettle ; add two car
rots, two turnips, two large onions, and if
possible a head of celery, all chopped fine.
Sprinkle in a dozen pepper corns, the
same of allspice, four cloves, and salt to
taste. Cover the whole with cold water,
set over a brisk fire until it' boils well,
skim off the scum which will rise, then
stew gently at the back of the stove for
four hours. Remove the meat to serve
with potatoes for dinner. If a thick soup
is desired, mix a tablespoonful of potato
or corn starch in cold water, and stir into
the soup; let it boil up and ser. e. If
preferred, some of the meat can be cut up
in the soup.
As to that much-talked of disease in
horses, sweeney, Prof Law, of Cornell
University, writes the N. Y, Tribune that
in many suppmva tuo Owinkneo of
the muscles of the shoulders is the result of
disease in the feet. If it be decided that
the disease is real, he advises applying a
mild blister repeatedly over the shoulder
muscles, and giving plenty of walking
exercise on a smooth road, Ecinal par&
of the oil of turpentine, monis and olive
may be rubbed into the shoulder re

STIR the ground frequently around car
rots, and, if manure is needed, apply it in
liquid form while rain is falling, so that
ijie leaves will not be injured.
Buckwheat Cakes.—Few dislike this
pancake, if properly made. My experi
ence teaches that not many understand
this inexpensive delicacy, for delicacy it is.
The friend who tv.ttght me' how to make
them commenced her lesson with :
"Not any yeast made - pancakes for me.
They are good enough, perhaps, but can't
compare with a golden-hued, buttermilk

of buttermilk without a drop of water in
it. Don't I rinse down my churn ? No, I
scraped the but'er down with. a spoon, to
keep . it rich, you know. Now I put in a
teaspoonful of soda and one of salt; then
I dip five handfuls of flour, so big, and

"Don't think of setting the table during
the operation of frying. Have all that
done first, and merely get a good start be
fore you ring the bell. You need not
have a disagreeable smell of burnt fat ac
companing the operation, unless you wish
to waste it. A Mtge square of fat pork is
best (I think) with the rind on.; skim it
lightly over the griddle, through ; and
when through, trim off the soiled-looking
part, and it will do many times. J never
turn a cake over twice, and I don't let it
get cooked through before I turn it. Pop
the cakes under cover quickly; steaming

that the lid does not bear on them heav
Raisin Cake.—Beat one cup of sugar
and one cup of butter together, add six
well-beaten eggs, one cup milk or cream
with half a teaspoonful of soda in it, also
a teaspoonful of cream tartar in the flour.
Add flour sufficient for pound cake batter
—about three cups full. Have readyhalf

This amount will make two medium loaves.

one teaspoonful cream tartar. Dissolve
the soda and cream tartar in one-half cup

TO THE PATRONS OF
THE HUNTINGDON JOURNAL.
.JANUARY 1, 1871
The hand that guides the. rolling spheres,
And marks the flight of passing years,
Has measured out another span
Of that which is allowed to man,
And circumscribed the narrow space
That bounds our earthly dwelling place.
The dial's hand has marked the hour,
And slowly, from the "belfry tower"
The midnight clock, in measured tone,
Repeats the Old Year's dying *loan ;"
While floats the solemn vesper chime
Along the corridor of time •
Till Gient with Nature's maths strain,
It wakes a world to life again,
And ushers in the rising sun
Of EIGHTEEN HUNDRED SEVENTY-ONE.
When last I sang my Annual hey,
The morning of her natal day,
Her opening hour was glad and bright
No cloud übsPleod Toy light
Which dawned neon her rising day,
To cheer her on her onward spay,
As speeding on her glad career
We welcomed in the new-born year.
Since then, with never ceasing tread,
The wheels of time have onward sped,
The seasons, in their annual pace
Have ran again their appointed race.
Cold Winter, with his frosty °hale,
Has fettered upland, hill and plain,
Till Nature, from her sleep of death,
Has been aroused by S4mmer'a breath.
The voice of Spring hes waked the hours,
And stirred to life the birds and 'lowers, •
In Bninnines richest livery clad,
The earth has sported gay and glad,
The wealth of Autumn's garnered sheaves
Has mingled with her falling leaves.
'Tis thus the seasons 'come and go,
Like pulses in life's onward flow,
And all regrets are weak and vain,
The past can ne'er return again.
Change is the lot of mortals here,
Apd Time's mutations all must share,
God pity us,
and pity all
Who would the dreams of life recall,
Of all sad words of tongue and pen,
The saddest are, "it might have been."
Her race is run—the good Old Year—
ller memory to our hearts is dear. '
And we am here, with you, to tell
That she has played bar part fell well.
A nursing mother, tender, true
And kind, alike to me and you;
With gifts of love—an endless train—
We may not see her like again,
And pause , to drop a filial toam
While gathered round her open bier.
The blessings of a bounteous Heaven,
Have been in richest measure given ;
Our common country basked the while
beneath a common Father's smile ;
fPs blessings, with a liberal hand,
Have beep dispensed thSanghotit ihp
No plogoo or famine, gaunt and dread,
Has stalked abroad with wasting tread ;
No bugle-note, or call to arms,
Has startled with its fierce alarms ;
But Peace and Plenty—smiling pair—
Have showered their favors rich and rare.
A Government both wise and good,
In equal rights and brotherhood,
Has kept the nation's faith unstained,
And hope and confidence maintained;
4tioiting the admiration
Of eyery oountry, land and nation.
The debt entailed by Slavery
Decreasing day by day we sea t .
And flung broadcast, with bold right baud,
Freedom to all in freedom's land.;
Till, underneath her banner fair,
Its equal blessings ate, may share;
And all may hail, withlearte elate,
The fact, that our good ship of State,
To treason's hand has not been given,
O'er her mad breakers to be driven ;
Nor yet, still more to be deplored ;
Than treason's God-forsaken horde
An object of still greater dread,—
The heartless, soulless Copperhead,
Who, in that dark, and doleful hour,
When valor strove 'gainst hostile power,
And Freedom's banner rose and fell,
While struggling with the powers of hell,
Could view, with ill-concealed delight,
Our armies worsted in the fight,
And rub their hands in rapturous glee
At news of rebel victory •
But to the party, wise a nd true,
Which bore the flag of Union through
Long years of blood, we point with pride,
And trust the hand of such a guide,
Believing its ascendency
Our Government's success will be.
Not so with lands beyond the sea.
There carnage revels wild and free.
There War's red demon stalks abroad,
To blight the fairest works of God,
And :Plague and Famine follow far,
Along the fiery track of war.
The "chassepot" and the "needle gun"
The work of death full well have done,
As French and German yields his life,
On fields of fratricidal strife ;
And there the life-blood, warm and wet,
Is dripping from the bayonet,
While thousands roll in thousands' gore,
Which warmed their hearts an hour before
111-fated France, now reaps in tears.
The harvest of her misspent years,
When mad ambition, power and pride,
The god of Reason deified,
And lifting impious hands on high,
The. Almighty's vengeance dared defy.
Now, through the lurid battle's glare,
The anguished cry of keen despair
Goes up to Heaven. both wild and strong,
How long till peace ! Oh, God, how lorg
But through the rifted clouds of war,
We see the track of Freedom's car ;
And through the mists of Error's night,
Slow struggling upward towhrds her light,
The human mind attempts to soar
Away from priestcraft's blinding power,
And seeks to burst the galling chain
Of Superstition's iron reign.
May God, in mercy, speed the day
When Peace, with universal sway,
Shall reign on earth from shore to shore,
And War's alarms be heard no more.
May Freedom's sacred vigil keep
The ashes where her heroes sleep—
Their warfare o'er, their duty done—
Beneath the heights of Arlington.
May Glory guard with solemn tread,
The slumbers of her martyred dead,
And, faithful to her sacred trust,
From treason's hand preserve their dust.
And now kind friends and patrons dear,
I wish you all a glad /Caw YEAR.
My simple song, however rude,
In uncouth numbers wild and crude,
One thing is true,—l bring to-day,
No oft told tale, or borrowed lay
Of former years, rehashed again,
To save the toil of mind and brain.
The story I to you have told,
Is neither borrowed, bought nor stole;
But fresh from memory's guarded cell,
Like childhood's visions storied well,
And culled from history's garnered store,
My Annual Song is sung once more.
From week to week your Carrier's feet
Have trod the busy, bustling street,
To serve you with the latest news;
And, now, he trusts you'll not refuse
The justice of his mute appeal,
Or coldly turn upon your heel,
While he submits this truth to you,
That even the "Devil" should have his due.

11. T. 11,:t.maot.n, Druggist:
Deur Sir:-1 have been a sufferer, for upward
of twenty years, with gravel bladder and kidney
affections, during which time I have need various
medicinal preparations, and have been under the
treatment of the most eminent Physicians, experi
encing little relief.
Ira;bag seen your preparatiuns extensively ad
vertised, I consulted with lay family physician in
regard to using your Extract
I did this be - ell:Ise I had used all kinds of ad
vertised remedies, and had found them worthless,
and, some quite injurious; in fact, I despaired of
ever getting well, and determined to use no reme
dies hereafter unless I knew of the ingredients. It
was this that prompted me to use your remedy.
As you advertised that it was composed of huebu.
cubebs and juniper berries, it occurred to me and
my physician as au excellent combination, and,
with his advice after au examination of the article
and consulting again with the druggist, I conclud
ed to try it. I commenced its use about eight
months ago, at which time I was confined to my
room. From the first bottle I was :Astonished and
gratified at the beneficial effect, and after using it
three weeks, was alde to walk out, I felt much
like writing you a full ;:tatement of toy ease at
that time, but thought my improvement might
only be a tentpONvY: and there-4We eouclude4 ty

Ayer's Cherry Pectoral,
For Diseases of the Throat and Lungs,
such as Coughs, Colds, Whooping
Cough, Bronchitis, Asthma,
Probably never before in the whole history of
medicine, has anything won so widely and so deeply
upon the conadence of mankind, as this excellent
remedy for pulmonary complaints. Through a long
series of years, and among most of the races of
men it has risen higher and higher in their otima.
Lion, as it has become better known. Its uniform
ehantcter and power to cure the various after. lions
of the lungs and throat, have made it known as a re-
liable protector against them. While adapt.l to
milder forms of disease and to young children, it is
at the same time the most effectual remedy that ran
be given for incipient consumption, and the dan
gerous affections of the throat and lungs. As a 'pro
vision against sudden attacks of Croup, it should
be kept on hand in every family, and indeed as all.
are soinotinues subject to colds and coughs, all
should be provided with this antidote for them.
Although settled Consumption is thonght in
curable, still great numbers of rases where the di..
ease seemed settled, have been completely cured,
and the patient restored to sound health by the -
Cherry Pectoral. So complete is its mastery
over the disorders of the Lungs and Throat, that -
the most obstinate of them yiehl to it. When not',
inr, else could reach them, under the Cherry ree—
lora they subside and disappear.
Singers and Public Speakers find great pro

enemies of our race. Often, this unseen and unfelt
tenant of the organism undermines the constitution,
and invites the attack of enfeebling or fatal diseases,
without exciting a suspicion of its presence. Again,
it seems to breed infection throughout the body, and
then, on some favorable occasion, rapidly develop
into one or other of its hideous forms, either on the
surface or among the vitals. In the latter, tuber
cles may be suddenly deposited in the lungs or
heart, or tumors formed In the liver, or it shows
its presence by eruptions on the skin, or foul ulcer
ations on some part of the body. Hence the occa
sional use of a bottle of this Sarsaparilla is mi
visable, even when no active symptoms of disease
appear. Persons afflicted the followiug com
