The Model Farm of Missouri
The farm of John W. Harris, Esq., of
Boone County, Mo., is styled the " Model
Farm of Missouri," and certainly is one
which many faimers would do well to
pattern after, some on an equal scale, and
others on a smaller one.
This farm is situated about twelve miles
from Columbia City, Boone County, Mo.,
and about three miles north of the road
leading from that city to Rocheport, on the
Missouri river. It embraces 1,950 acres of
land, all in one body; 1,880 of it under
a "jam up" good fence—a Missouri phrase,
signifying "horse-high, bull-strong, and
He plows but little land in proportion
to the whole amount. His usual crop is
120 acres of corn, 120 acres of wheat, 50
acres of oats, 50 acres of Hungarian grass
and 100 acres of meadow, the balance be
ing in pasture. He has for years grown
Hungarian grass, and feeds it liberally to
all stock on his farm, considering it better
and more profitable than meadow hay. Ho
has never experienced any bad results
from its use, which in quantity raises from
100 to 150 tons yearly. His experience
in this respect is a general one in his
neighborhood, contrary to the opinion of
He has sixty head of Durham cattle,and
a few thorough bred Alderneys, which he
prizes above all others for their milking
capacities. .It is a remarkable fact that
the milk of the Alderney cow is as superior
iu richness to that of the common breed as
the latter is better than skimmed cream.
In addition to his breeding stock, he has
fifty head of Durhaans that are ready for
the butcher—that being the number which
he usually feeds each winter. He has
also, 350 head of Texas cattle, very large,
selected last fall at Baxter Springs; 400
head of sheep—a cross between the Cots
wold, Southdown and Merino; 200 bead
of hogs, most of them ready for the June
market; a cross between the Magic (or
Poland China) and Berkshire. Me es
teems the cross better than the fullblooded
of either kind, the first being too coarse
and the latter too small. His work stock
consists of ten mules and three yoke of
oxen. He has seven brood mares, several
riding and driving horses, and about forty
young mules. He has four large barns,
the finest in the State, and capable of
sheltering about 300 head of stock, and
holding feed sufficient to carry them through
an ordinary winter. He usually employs
about six hands by the year, paying them
$2O per month, furnishing them with a
comfbrtable house, truck patch, wood, fruit,
die., they nearly all being married men
and boarding themselves. He also has a
headman or superintendent that he pays
$5OO per annum.
Of course so large a place to be "run"
so successfully must be conducted on sci
entific principles. Mr. Harris does busi
ness on a scientific basis. A correspon
dent of Colman's Rural ew Yorker, who
lately interviewed him,
"I spent one whole day riding over, the
place with the proprietor, and I don't
think I exaggerate any when I say be got
down from his horse fifty times to put up
a rail that had been thrown from the
fence, or to take out his pocket-knife and
cut a dock root or mullen stalk. He has
five or six miles of young hedge; several
orchards, his place being composed of sev
eral farms purchased from different own
ers. The grounds surrounding his house
are ornamented with forest trees, ever
greens, shrubbery and flowers, and if his
children ever go to the great city, it will
not be with the excuse that home is not
Soiling vs. Pasturing.
Let me recite the experience and prac
tice of a friend of mine. Coming into his
posession of about nine acres of land in
the neighborhood of a good maJltet, and
made by the demand of a large literary in
stitution, he cast about as to what was to
to be done. Two cows and a horse was
the stock in trade, for neat cattle. He was
obliged to pay, per season, men for pastu
rage, what they thought it was worth, and
the same time it was no small job to
drive his cows back and forth. That de
termined 'him to keep his cows in the
barn. The greatest trouble was the rap
id accumulation of manure. By good
husbandry he properly secured that; he
kept feeding it to his crops. Finding them
increasing, he added another cow. An
other cow only made more manure. More
manure husbanded in the same way made
more crops, and then he added anoth
er cow, now began another serious difficul
ty. His barn was too small. Still, at the
end of the fourth year he put in another
cow,.and set himself to work to get up a
new barn with modern improovnients, of
a good size, a horse, a pair of cattle, and
five cows, and yet had not thought of buy
ing more but wanted one more cow. Now,
people who do not want a large accumula
tion of manure and a gradual increase of
crops, should not adopt that style. But it
seems to me that in our towns, where home- I
steads are in small lots, and not easily
procured, no better course could be pursu
ed than stalling the cows, and at the the
same time fatting theland.—New Eng-I
The amount of injury done to the ten
der stomachs of young children, invalids
and sedentary persons by eating bad bread
day after day, from one year's end to
another, must be enormous. A cook
who cannot make good bread of every dee
cription ought not to be allowed house room
for au hour • and the mother is criminally
negligent, whatever may be her position,
who does not teach her daughter to know
what good bread is and how to make it.—
Alum is used to give whiteness, softness
and capacity of retaining moisture. Lime
could be employed with equal effect, hav
ing the advantage of correctino. ' any sour
ness in the bread or stomach ;besides af
fording an impotent ingredient for making
the bone strong. Every housekeeper should
know how to make two or three kinds of
DIFFERENCE IN EGGS.—The German
town Telegraph remarks that "Were is a
vast difference in tha flavor of eggs. Hens
fed on clean, sound grain and kept on a
clean grass rue, give much finer flavored
eggs than , those that have access to stables
and manure heaps and eat all kinds of
filthy food. Hens feeding on fish or onions
flavor their eggs accordingly—the same as
cows eating onions or cabbages, or drinking
offensive water, impart a bad taste to the
milk and butter. The richer the food the
higher the color of the egg. Wheat and
corngii , e the best color, while feeding on
buckwheat makes the eggs colorless, ren
dering them unfit for some confectionery
MANGE is similar to the itch in the hu
man subject, and is caused by a minute in
sect which is hatched from eggs probably
adhering, .to the skin. Give sulphur and
othei cooling medicines for the blood, and
use mercurial ointment well rubbed up
on the skin: Apply petroleum or carbolic
acid to the pans and places upon which
the pigs come in contact, or rub them-
selves. Harris, in his late work, recom ,
mende petroleum, applied to the skin of the

The Fatigue of Washing Day no longer Dreaded,
but Economy, Efficiency, and Clean Clothing, Sure.
In calling public attention to this little machine,
a few of the invaluable qualities, (hot possessed
by any other washing machine yet invented,) are
It is the smallest, most compact, most portable,
most simple in construction, most easily operated.
A child ten years old, with a few hours' practice,
can thoroughly comprehend and effectually use it.
There is no adjusting, no screws to annoy, no de
lay in adapting ! It is always ready for use! It is
a perfect little wonder! It is a miniature gisnt,
doing more work and of a better quality, than the
most elaborate and costly. Ono half of the labor
is fully saved by its use, and the clothes will last
one-half longer than by the old plan of the rub
board. It will wash the largest blanket. Three
shirts at a time, washing thoroughly ! In a word,
the ablution of any tabrie, from a Quilt to a Lace
Curtain or Cambric Handkerchief, are equally
within the capacity of this Little Gem ! It can be
fastened to any tub and taken off at will.
No matter bow deep rooted a prejudice may ex
ist against Washing Machines, the moment this
little machine is seen to perform its wonders, all
doubts of its cleansing efficacy and utility are
baniabed, and the doubter and detractor at once
become the fast friends of the machine.
Wo have testimonials without end, setting forth
its numerous advantages over all others, and from
hundreds who have thrown aside the unvridely,
useless machines, which have signally failed to ac
complish the object promised in prominent and
It is as perfect for washing as a wringer is for
wringing. The price is another paramount in
ducement to purchasers, has been placed so low
that it is within the reach of every housekeeper,
and there is no article of domestic economy that
will repay the small investment so soon.
