Wk notice hy our western ex changes, that the amber sugar cane or sorghum, is Wing planted in that section quite extensively. It would lie well to experiment with it in our county. If successful It would help diversify our crops, at the same add one of the necessities of life to our home productions. Wk do our farmer readers who are in need of n Horse fork a kindness by calling their attention to the ad vertisement of the I'cnnock Manufac turing Co., which will lie found in another column of this page. This is a case in which our experience en ables us to fully endorse the state ments of the advertiser. Onk part each of white heloborc and flowers of sulphur and three or four parts of soot, thoroughly mix ed together, and applied to melon, cucninlier and squash vines, in the early morning, when the dew is on, will keep at bay the miserable little stripped bug, which, unless something is done to prevent it, will assured ly destroy them. Green Fodder for Short Pasture- The dairyman must not forget, at this season, that August and Septem ber arc wont to bring short pasture, which operates most disastrously upon milk production. Now is the time to provide against this contin gency. A bout one-filth of an acre |ier cow, put into green crops, will furnish all the green food required when the pastures dry up, ami the better the quality of the food the better will the cows hold out their full yields th rough the season. FODDER CORN. The most universal crop used for this purpose is fodder corn, and, al though sonic regard It as very poor food, it has a value greater than any other crop yet tried for this purpose. The great objection made to it is its deficiency in albuminoids required to make the casein of the milk, and, from this fact, when fed alone itolten reduces the yield of milk. Thia ob jection has force, l>ut it may be an swered by saying that it is not neces sary to few! fodder corn alone—that it is an excellent succulent food, hav ing all the starchy and fatty elements necessary, and that this lack of albu minoids may be made up for with green cloviy, millet, or wheat bran, or a small amount of oil-meal. It is not a perfect food in itself, and very few such foods are known. The dairy roan should seek for variety in food —not for i single food to bo given for all purposes. Corn has the great advantage of being adapted to almost all soils, and of producing so abund ant a crop that only a small amount of ground is required for each cow, It comes into feeding condition at the very time wanted, and remains fn for some weeks. It stands drouth better than roost other crops, and yields more tons of green food to the ' acre tlmn any other crop. These ad ! vantages entitle corn to great cbnsid | cration aw a green crop for late suin : iner and lull feeding. When planted for this purpose, early and late varielica should Ins used. The early, eight-rowed New England held varieties, and Crosby and other early sweet varieties should he planted for August feeding; and the Southern White, Western Yellow and Stowell's Evergreen ft wee t should he used for later feeding. The best method of raising a valuable crop of any of these varieties is to plant in drills 40 or 42 inches apart, with one bushel of seed to the acre, and culti vate as for a held crop. The thicker stand will cause the stalks to he smaller, hut there w ill "he a plentiful formation of ears, which will not in jure the quality, and if suffered to nearly ripen will add much to the value of an acre for winter feeding. Whei the ear is in the milk, it has the greatest value for the production of milk or flesh in feeding. When corn is sown thickly, so as not to l>crmit the formation of ears, it is ready for feeding when in tassel. It then contains all the nutritious ele ments of ripened corn in a soluble condition. But there is a prevalent error of opinion in reference to the value of small and large stalks. The general opin on is that small stalks are more nutri ions and less woody than large ones. liut to show that this is an error, let any one select twenty pounds of large stalks in tas sel, and likewise 20 pounds of small ones, also in tassel. Now take a small, bard-twisted twine and meas ure tiie circumference at the butt of all the stalks, large and small, and see which has the most outside sur face to a given weight. If we are to sup|>ose that the large stalks average 1 inch in diameter, and the small stalks \ inch in diameter, then it would take foursinall stalks to weigh as much as one large stalk, and the circumference of four half-inch stalks will be just twice as much as a one inch stalk. Therefore, the small stalks are likely to have twice the outside rind of the large ones, pro vided you raise a crop equal in weight of each kind. The rind of a large stalk is a little harder and tougher than the 9inall one, but since there is only half as much of it, wc cannot properly say that the large stalks have more indigestible woody fibre, but ratber less. When the corn has been raised in the mnnner described and the car has reached the milk, the best waj' to feed it is to run it through a cutter and cut it into half inch lengths. If the dairymen has also a second cut ting of clover to mix with it, then mix in one-quarter clover while cut ting the corn, and cut both together. This mixture will produce a large flow of excellent milk. The proper elements arc well combined in the two foods. Hut if lie has no clover, then he may mix one-third green mil let, or green oats and peas, or llun gntian grass—and if he has no other green food, then let him mix in one fourth of clover or other good hay, and it will all be eaten clean and pro duce good milk. liut if the dairymen have no straw cutter or power, when the corn is in the succulent condition we have mentioned, cows will eat it pretty clean, and the ears will give it more value than when grown too thick to ear. Sweet corn is richer in album inoids and fat, and is preferable to the common field corn as green fod der, hut you can seldom raise as large a crop—so that it might Ik* as well to plant aliout half of each kind. is an excellent green crop when successful; and to Ik- success ful the soil must be of very fine tilth. A line, rich loutn is |>crliaps best for Has fine seed. A heavy crop of mil let stands four to five feet high, with heads 3 to 6 six inches long. A large crop ought to weigh 10 to 12 tons green, or al>out half as much as good fodder corn ; but it has nearly double the hutriment of fodder corn in its green state, so that a large crop of millet has a great value, whether fed alone or In connection wiih fodder corn. It is usually sufficiently ma tured for feeding green in 00 to 76 days. Hungarian gram is also a species of millet, having a somewhat shorter stalk and shorter head,but producing , fodder of alHiiit the same quality. 8 , to 18 tons of green Hungarian fodder is a good crop. Soil required Is about the same as tor millet. I'm* and Oat* —this makes an ad- I mil able green crop for producing milk —is right for feeding green when the pea begius to form in pod. This a nitrngeneous food, and well adapted to mixing with fbddcr corn. A good crop will weigh green, about ten tons. It is easily grown upon gr<yit variety of soils, and may he sown up to the 10th of June, liut earlier sowing gives a heavier crop. A <iaßiir.Nt:n recommends that to koep bugs ofr melon and squash vines a tomato plant he set in each hill, saying that when be had followed this plan, his young plants were not molested. Ir you have a row of trees the whole length of the road againat your farm, aet a row on the line between your farm and your neighbor's. They will be very ornamental aa well m useful. The Most Famous Butter Cow. A ufinti, Agri< uJlurUt tor J tin <• |. The most famous living butter cow today Is "Jersey Hello of Hcitoate,'' the projierty of Mr. C. O. Kllms, of Scitnate, Mass., dropped in 1871, and bred by Mr. K. 11. Sohicr. She is now nine years old, or will lie on the I btli of next month (July). She is a beautiful cow of a rich-yel low-fawn color, shading into a dark er tint upon the head diversified and mapped out with considerhle white. She is above medium size, weighing 350 pounds when in her best condi tion, and really represents exactly such an animal in appcaracc, as well as characteristics, us may he, and frequently is, produced by the direct cross of the Guernsey and Jersey breeds. One of the iiest uses, by the way, to which inferior or unregister ed animals of either Guernsey or Jer sey blood can he put is to mingle their blood. Cross-breeds develop with great uniformity, the excellen cies of both the parent breeds. In the case of "Jersey Helle of Scitn ate," it is a question, which probably can never meet with a solution— how much of her rare qualities does she, or does she not. owe to a remote Guernsey cross 1 Her butter is ol as rich a color, and very much the tex ture and degree of firmness (or rath er lack of firmness when compared with average Jersey butter) as the highest colored Guernsey product, and this high color is held through out the winter. [The American Ag riculturist gives an accurate and beautiful picture of this cow in con nection with the article from which this extract is made]. The Kllms' cow we have said is to day the most famous butter cow liv ing. We mean to intimate that she holds that position only until some rival shall lie fully attested to yield more than 22 pounds 13 ounces of butter in a week, or more than 705 pounds in a year. Some cow will surely do this within a year or two, so that unless this wonderful cow excels her own record, she will be forced to accept a second or even a lower place. A Profitable Poultry Accout and its Les sens. Hitler in Rural N't Y<ik*r. Having kept an accurate account of the receipts and ex|>enses of my liens for the last 13 years, it may in terest readers of the llural if the re sults are given : Amount fur thick* na n<l eg^i loM In I iTrer* fl' HiR Amount ir f*vl in j:i yr% $1,446.1** " " fmttry fowl* and eg| . M *z '* M " BiidtlKMn and r )*ir to -hoitae mi .. R.i„ act fig aa MA profit— SItS.U or n profit of about 66 per cent. The number of hens kept ranged from 50 to 2*o. The lest results were ob tained when 150 were kept. I am well aware that this report falls In-low many highly colored ones that we read of in the papers; hut it has the merit of being a truthful one. All poultry and eggs were sold at matket rates, none having been sold at fancy prices, so that this profit is a legiti mate one, and can he realized hy any person using common sense in the management of his hens. The highest profit in any one year was $203 88, in 1 870 ; tiie lowest $26.25 in 1875. In Hie years I*6o, 1870, IH7I 1x72. the profit was $633.12, leaving $402 20 for the other nine years. This difference was partly owing to the change in price of eggs and chickens, and partly to a change in the breed of my fowls. Hwill be seen that each dollar paid out in the 13 years, has given a return of $1.65 often within the week, certainly as often as once per month u|Kin an av erage. A Little Farmer's Story. A little fellow, ten years of age, giving his farm ox|>erienec in St. Nicholas , preaches a better aermon than he was aware of om the text "How to make boys like the farm." He says : When I was four, niv moth er took me to see my grandfather, who gave me a dollar. When I came home mv father offered to give ine a heifer for the dollar and a year's work at five cents a day. I said all right, and after a year's work was done he sold the cow and gave me the money with which I bought a four-year old cow. After a while this cow had a calf, and when he waa a yearling she had another. When the first calf was a two-year old 1 traded him for another cow. The first cow by this time had a third calf and the second cow also had a cslf. I sold two of the yearlirgc for $23 and had $6 besides. I put this money at interest for ten rents on a dollar a year. Afterward I bought | another cow, selling the first old one for $27, buying two pigs. By trad ing round I now have two cows, two calves, two pigs, a pony and saddle, and $24 in money at interest, all made in six years. LRorMtxotis crops, like clover, do, somehow or other, gather a good supply of nitrogen where cereals, such as wheat, harley, rye and oats, would half starve for lack of It, snd this in the face of the fact that legu minoua plants contain a great deal of nitrogen and cereals relatively Utile. Hence a heavy nitrogeneous manure may pay well for wheat and be in a large part lost on clover. Liquid Manure. Vrom lh Antfri'mo AjcrW uitiuUt. To answer several inquiries at once, we may any tliat either horse, cow, sheep or hen manure may lie lifted, ami no definite rule can be giv en beyond the caution to not UHC it toofttrong. Where there is a provls ion for Having the drainage from stables, this may lie used upon the garden if ftufllciently diluted. A cask or barrel may be prepared by putting some straw in the bottom and half or two-thirds filling the barrel with horse, cow or sheep-man tire. This is to serve as a leach, pouring water in ut the top and draining off the manure "lye" at the bottom. The old direction to dilute this "the color of boarking-bouse tea," is perhaps as definite as any. Where guano is used, one pound to five gallons of water is abundantly strong, and with the liest Peruvian Guano, twice the quantity of to a pound would le safer. In the use of liquid man ure, B orne precautions are to be obser ved. It is not to lie applied to the foliage, but to the roots of the plants. In dry weather, draw away the sur face soil, apply the manure, and when this has soaked in return the s >il. This is to prevent the baking of the wet soil and forming a crust. A Ix'lter way to accomplish this is to place a mulch of straw, litter or chips, on the surface around the plants. The manure may lie applied through this mulch, in a dry time, do not use the liquid manure unless the plant* can IK.' kept watered as needed until rain falls again. Feed the Good Milkers. The best milkers use all the food they can get to make milk, and suffer in their own flesh in cousequence. The dairyman should carefully ex amine each cow in his herd, and see that her wants are provided for. He is sometimes very ungrateful to his best cows, those that pay a fine profit, ami he allows them to draw even on their own flesh to increase their yield of milk. A practiced eye detects the wants of such cows in a moment. Tliey are striving to do their best for their owner, and want a little extra food to keep up their own flesh while they are yielding a large return for the food consumed. Prof. Iforsfall, whose practice was given in the Jotir nal a short time ago, gave about* 2lbs of liean-meal to each of such cows per day. Bean-meal is very rich in moscle-forming food. We cannot use this here, because of its expense, but we can use what is equally as good—oats and corn —two bushels •f oats and one of corn ground together, mixed with an equal weight of wheat bran or middlings. Give 2 lbs. of this mixture with lb. of oil meal to each good milker. This will cost about 3 cents per day and will well repay it In the condition of the cow, besides the increase in milk. It is the good milkers that pay for feed ing. As they deal generously with you, deal ye even so with them. Poor milkers do no even pay their keeping. They should lie fed well only to fit tin in for the butcher. Let them be used for what they were intended— meat. Fodder Corn. Fr<*ai lh Firm Journal.
