Write it anil tend it to the "Agricultural Editor of the Dkmockat, Beliefonte, J'enn'a," that other fannert may have, the benefit of it. Let communication! be timely, and be cure that they are brief and well pointed. "In due season ye shnll reap, if ye fuint not." In using Paris Green or London Purple for the destruction of potato hugs, it is well to exercise a little care and common sense, particularly if poultry has access to the lot. We recently learned of a man who mixed the poison with bran because lie did not happen to have anything else convenient. Of course his chickens eat the bran, and of course the chick ens died. Air slaked lime and plas ter are very good articles for its ap plication in a dry state, but we pre fer mixing it with flour and stirring the Hour in water which is "whisked" on the vines with a small broom or turkey wing. Now that the executive committee of our county agricultural society is making preparations for the fair this fall, we respectfully present for their consideration a rule adopted by the Ohio Hoard of Agriculture: "Exhibiters in the live stock de partments will be required to display over each stall or pen occupied by their stock, a placard containing the name, age, and breed of the anitnal occupying the stall or pen, and also the name and post office address of the owner. The placard will be fur nished and filled up at the Secretary's office." Heretofore it has been deemed good policy, not only by our local society, but by all, cither county, or state, which have come under one observation, to have the ownership of all articles nnd animals placed on exhibition hidden under the numbers by which the}* are known in the Sec retary's books, at least until after pre miums are awarded- The only rea son to be given for this is that the com mittees should be relieved from the temptation to partiality which would arise from their knowledge of the proprietorship of the articles or ani mals they arc examining, This is a reflection upon the integrity of the committeemen which the oflicers of the society have no right to entertain, in advance, of those whom they ask to assume the somewhat arduous and : wearysome duties of the position, j In addition to this the measure fails to accomplish its purpose. If there; arc men on the committee who can be influenced in their award of prizes or diplomas by the fact that Hon. A. 8., owns'tlns animal, or Col. C. I>., is the proud and ambitious proprietor of that one, they will generally man age to And out which stall the animal occupies, whether it is placarded or not. Thus the only object sought in refusing permission to placard until after premiums are awarded is de feated, while exhibitors lose the greater part of the value of the ex hibition to them, and visitors are de deprived of much of the satisfaction to which they are entitled. Upon this subject the Prartical Farmer very justly says : "The idea that com mittees must not know whose stock they are examining ought to be ex ploded with such force that the pieces could never be brought together again. Put men on committees who will give the awards to the meritori ous nnimals not to their owners." Oows. From lb* Amrrtnui Agricnltnriat. (larget and abortion trouble the dairymen. We believe in preven tion. The former may surely be prevented by due care. As soon as the udder contains milk, it should be relieved by drawing ofT a part of it, if there is any tendency to hardness. These diseases are often a conse quence of weakness. A fat animal may be weak for want of food. When a cow's time approaches and the feed is suddenly reduced, dis turbance of the system is caused. Circulation becomes irregular and congestion occurs in the most suscep tible organs. The udder it the prin ciple one of these at this period, and an attack of garget is very sure to occur. This may not alwaa be so, but long experience and observation convinces us that it generally is. The remedy is obvious. Extracts and Comments. The ox-eye daisy has become a great pest in some sections of the country. Those who lire troubled with this weed should bear in mind that it is propagat ed by seed, and not by root, anil that to rid themselves of it they have only to mow before the seed is ripe. It may take two or even three seasons to rid a field of this innocent-looking flower Philadelphia Record, We desire to give this paragraph B|>ecial prominence because in some parts of our country the daisy seems to have obtained a fine foothold. It has, of late years, been establishing itself in great strength at the Bide# of the track on the line of the Bald Eagle Valley railroad. Last year the ofllcers of the road had it mowed when in blossom, and we took occas sion to tender them the thanks of the farmers, whose lands admin the roßd, lor their thoughtfulness. This will avail nothing, however, unless farmers themselves take pains to sec ond the It. It. authorities, We re member noticing a year or two ago, a large field on the pike between Belle fonte and the State College, which was completely surrendered to this troublesome weed. Mowing isa sure remedy, and one easy of application. Let it be promptly and persistently used. The piping note* of the little chick" are sounding all over the land, and they will bring forth the usual periodical deluge of "sure cure for gape*."' I wish to suggest to the Farmer* who are in the habit of giving "sure cures," tha for novelty's sak- they say nothing about ted pepper, black pepper, slack ed lime, camphor, carbolic acid, tur pentine, or '"twist a feather" in the chick's throat. I make this request because I have frequently known all these to fail. Hut if the coops are kept clean, and the hens and chick" free from lice. 1 think a cure will not be needed.— Frank Wifftamtcn in In<hana Farmer, We have not tried nil the "sure cures" enumerated by Mr, William son but have miserably failed of any good results with such of them as we have tried, excepting the last one which might be called cleanliness. In previous years we have never fail ed to have more or less cases of ga|>cs among our chicks, while this year among two hundred hatched we have not, up to this time of writing, June IC, discovered a solitary case. It so happens, too, that wc have paid an unusual degree of attention to clean liness ia everything connected with the fowls. There is not a louse about coops, hens or chicks. The hens are kept in little \ coops set about in the potato patch and truck garden, with little wooden troughs for water immediately in front, so that the hen can reach it as well as the chicks. The food is thrown upon the ground; that for the hen within easy reach of the coop, ami that for the chicks scat tered about so far from the coop that the hen cannot get it, and yet near enough to prevent the hen from fret ting. The troughs arc filled with fresh water at least thice times a day and washed out at least once. The coops being small and light, can be easily moved by sliding them along the ground, leaving the hen under them. They arc changed to fresh ground every day, and the place from which they have been taken, thor oughly dug over, burying all the droppings, ami completely removing the foul smell which a brood of! chicks will always leave after a nights roosting. Of course, all this is some little trouble, but not really so much as one would think, and there is a deal more satisfaction in it than in having flock after flock "die off with the gapes." ■ If the paddle or float churn is used a high rate of speed should not be al lowed, for the rapid beating of the floats lias also a tendency to break down the grain of the butter, and no manner of after working or fixing will restore that granular formation so desirable and so imperative, if keeping qualitiea are sought. The floats should—while work ing close—not be allowed to come in contact with the shell of the churn, and the journals need careful packing or the blackened cream will streak the butter.— Cor. 0/ Practical Farmer. AH this trouble can be avoided by using one of the new style churns which have no "paddles or floats" but do their work by causing the cream to fall from side to side of the chum, sach ss the "Rectangular" made by t Cornish & Curtis, of Fort Atkinson, Wis. No danger of "break ing down the grain of the butter" in them, nor of having any "blackened cream to streak it." The paddle or float chnrn is as much out of date now In a good dairy, as a cradle in a forty-acre wheat field. How Butter May be Spoiled. By Prof. ifnry Ht^wart. flood butter may be spoiled in the churning. Overeliurtiing ruins the texture and changes the proper waxi ness to a disagreeable, sticky grcasi ness. This is the more easily done in the churn, with revolving dashes, which will press the butter against the side of the churn and squeeze and rub it until it is spoiled. Too long churning spoils the quality by the oxidation of the butter and the premature formation of strong-flavor ed acids in it, the full preserving presence of which we call rancidity, it may lie spoiled by churning at too high a temperature, by which it is made soft and oily, and of a greasy texture and flavor. No subsequent treatment can remedy this error. It may lie spoiled before the cream reaches the churn by keeping this too long, or what is practically thg same, by keeping it in too warm a place ; . r 0 degrees is about the right temperature if cream is kept a week ; i( it is kept at €2 degrees, three days are long enough. White specks are produced in butter by overchurning, or by having the cream too sour. Hither of these faults produces curd in the milk and the small flakes of this cannot be washed outof the but ter. Milk from a cow in ill health, and that is acid when drawn, will produce specky but'er. Ho will the use of salt conta'nirg particles of lime, which unite with the butter and form insoluble lime soap. Recuperating Worn Land. A practical farmer writes as fol lows: It is 110 use to tell a man to sow clover when the land will hardly raise buckwheat. It won't catch only in little spits, and those will freeze out. I will tell my way. Plow the ground in May and sow three fourths bushels buckwheat to the acre. Fit the soil thoroughly before sowing. This crop w ill be in blossom in June, when it should be rolled down and chained under as he plows. Not later than July 10th, reduce surface to a good seed bed and sow the same again. This crop will be grown large and be in full blossom soon enough to turn under and prepare the ground for wheat. I have had a second crop grow four feet high. 1 bought a farm, some parts of which wore very poor, hilly, and not easy of access- ()u these fields buckwheat has lieen the key to success in bringing them back to what they once were. After two crops of buckwheat have been plowed underclover will "catch." The wheat crop ought to be dressed, with three to five wagon loads of well rotted manure to the acre. I place red clov er first to put power and life into land, and buckwheat second. For worn soil buckwheat is the best by far as it grows so rapidly and can lie turned down in one season and soil fitted for wheat. Manure in Potato Hills. Mr. No* Vutk Work!. "Fresh manure in the hill with po tatoes does not answer. It will make the potatoes scabby. The best com mercial fertilizer to use is the one richest in potash. I have always ob served that we get the largest yield of potatoes on new soil, and the yield diminishes in proportion to the number of crops produced. I prefer soil to any kind of stubble for pota toes. Have used a mixture of plas. ter and ashes on potatoes with great benefit. When the tops arc four or five inches high I dust the mixture on the foliage, and can see an impor tant change in less thnn two weeks. I prefer to apply it to the foliage rather than the ground, as it repels the beetle. Hectles never attack vig orous growing tops, but choose the feeble growing ones." Protect Agriculture. Frnn th N York Tiru>. The latest assault on the tarilf comes from the manufacturers of cot- Urn and woolen fabrics. Finding their power of competition in foreign inarketa greatly abridged by the en hanced cost of dyeing materials, due to protection, they ask for the remov al of duty upon chrome, iron ore and bichromate of potash, which form the basis of most of the chemical colors used for cotton And wool. This an eminently just demand, and is part of a movement which will result in lop ping off a great many of the absurdi ties of our taritr system. In fact, with the gradual discovery that the best way to encourage native indus try is to reduce custom duties to the simplest possible elements, the entire structure of our protective leg islation will be undermined. Where the principle to be only recognised that agriculture is the most import ant of our industries, and the one which, being unprotected, is forced to pay tribute to all the reat, the pro cess of simplyfytng the tariff would be very decidedly hastened. TRIER is more to be learned about farming than there is now known; the world it waking up to the fact that farming it a science as well aa a routine of toil, a theory as well as a practioe. FKKD poultry every two hours when young (beginning with an early breakfaat), and half aa often after six weeks old ; but never give more than can be eaten clean each time. Large Grope without Manure. Cor. at Country Onlletiian, I do not HU ppoae that Mr. J. A. Ev critt intended to build up expectation's that will not, under ordinary circurn- Htances, be realized when he eta ted (in bin advertisement, on page 'A3G) that his potato yielded 548 bushels from one acre without argy manure whatever. Ido not wish to prejudice any one against buying his potatoes, for if they are valuable, they should l>e disseminated, and this can only Ist found out by trial, But it is foolish to expect that the highest and best results can be secured without corn plying with all necessary conditions. How often men have bought improv ed stock and brought it home, delud ed with the idea that it takes little feed and little care. These arc the men that expect try reap where they have not sown. -They denounce the whole thing as a swindle, and they are right if one can get something from nothing. The sooner this delusion is exploded, and people learn the true advantages of improved seed or stock, the lietter. The principal advantage is this : If you have extra conditions, you want the stock that will make the most out of those extra conditions ; but those extra conditions are a necessity, and are absolute esscnt als without which you cannot succeed, and the nearer the conditions are complied with, the better the success. By feeding to a Short-Horn in 18 months all the feed that an ordinary scrub requires to mature and fatten it in four years, the Short-Horn will be the most prof itable. He will not require near so much feed as the other animal does. Hut compel him to live on scanty herbage and joor winter feed from before his birth until maturity, and he is the most pitable and hungry looking object one usually sees. It is the same in the vegetable kingdom. What farmers most need to know is that a high state of fertility is ne cessary, and how to most wisely and cheaply produce this high state of productiveness. Then they must plant the most productive potato, all other things being equal. Beaus for Stock-Feeding. In Orleans county, X. Y., bean culture has since the beginning of the war come to occupy a poßition of no small importance. Mr. I). 11. I'atridge, of a firm who sell from 30,000 to 50,000 bushels each year, gives Kural Home these items of cx perience in utilizing the inferior por tion of the crop as feed for stock.: "During the winter season Messrs. P. £ Is., keep from fifteen to twenty-five families picking beans, and the dam aged ones picked out together with the split beans screened out before picking, are sold to our farmers for feeding sheep and swine, but mostly for sheep. Some are fed to cows, and with good results. 1 have in mind one farmer, formerly from this county, but now liv ing near Spencerport, who has purchas ed a good rnaoy beans of us for feeding his cows, and he stated that when feed ing meal he would change to feeding beans, there would be an increase of from one to two quarts per day, in the amount of milk, and when changing from Leans to meal a corresponding de crease. They are specially adapted to the feeding of sheep, not only having the fattening properties of corn, but elso containing some ingredient which enters largely into the production of wool. They are more valuable for feed where wool is the object sought for than corn. As to feeding swine, they have to learn to eat them by degree#, and then by cooking and mixing meal or bran with them, they answer very well to feed to young pigs or store hogs, and will give them a good start; but pork made mainly from feeding beans is not considered by our farmers worth more than the salt it lakes to preserve it. It always produces soft, spongy pork, and in cooking fries sway to almost nothing; also, the lard from same will not hara en, but remains of a soft, oily nature. Where swine are fed upon beans, and last six to eight weeks before slaughter ing, then changed to corn, the results are much better, the corn seeming to harden the meat. Messrs. P. k 11. sold quite a good many tons of poor beans for feeding sheep one year ago at $S per ton ; they are now selling them at sll per ton, or 35 cents per bushel, there being a steady demand for them for feeding sheep. A large number of our farmers have been feeding sbeep for the market the past Winter, and have been well paid in every instance. "WOMAN can do a great many things and do them better than can a man," say Mr. Hyde, in the N. Y. Time*; "but she never waa made to run a farm. Hhe haa various and in creasing rights, but following the plow, driving oxen, managing bulla and breaking colts are not among them. She is an indispenaable help meet to the farmer, but her sphere is a domestic one, literally domestic, that is, belonging to the house. When she takes upon herself the prerogative of mingling with the men in the field, loading hay and moving it away, directing about the breeding of stock, and displaying her eques trian skill on the road or race-oouree, she unscxes herself and becomes a man in petticoats. SraiNRMNQ liberally with a solu tion of "one spoonful of coarse pow dered saltpetre to a pail of water, proved in the case of a correspondent of Vick't Monthly % "an admtrhble remedy" for the potato beetle, squash bugs and the maggot a that work at the roots; also for other insects, be sides "invigorating all plants, espec ially rosea."
