It is one of the very few jobs of hauling which furnishes two profits—one at loading, and the other at unloading. IP the crop is wanted in a hurry, as in the case of early | otatoes, it is advisable to supply the dung in a thoroughly decomposed state; the rootlets w ill liinl it easier to attack and the juices w ill Ire more ready for their greedy HtMc mouths. IT is as well settled us anything can be that, other things In ing equal, ihe earliest sown oats does the best. I'ush things, with this crop, now. It is not the most profitable crop that can be grown, even at its best, and we need to take every possible ad vantage of it. IT is not la-it to renew the orchard by planting young apple trees in the places made vacant by the decay and destruction of the old ones. To a certain extent the materials needed for the growth of apple wood has been extracted from the soil, and many of the enemies with which the apple has to contend have found a location there. It is belt* r to sup ply the vacancy with a tree of some other fruit,or (terhaps leave it vacant, and plant a new orchard in some other locality. Is planning and planting the gar den this spring it will la: profitable to think about a year ahead. The scarcity of vegetables upon the ordi nary farmer's table is felt more at this time of the year than any other, and in only too many raws the list is limited to beans and potatoes. This ahould not and need not be. At least two more vegetables, parsnips and salsify, may Is- added to the list with the least possible trouble, if thought of and arranged fur in time, and the time is ut the early spring planting of the garden. They re quire hut little, if any more care nml trouble than jxitatoes or cabbage, and when grown there is an end to it until lliey are wanted f„r use, la in.- left to winter in the ground, as they grow. lSy nil means plant a small I bed of each this spring. A Mistaken Idea. Fn> UM Oriiiv* (' *i*iy Fterm*r Too many farmers give but little time to the home garden, from a mis taken idea tiiat it is not profitable, *n opinion which we think i* wide of the truth. Every farmer should see to it that the family is well provided with an abundance of beans, |>eas, currants, raspbertics, asparagus, to matoes, etc. A fine asparagus la-d. when once started requires but little care and is an important factor in itie matter of table supplies. It comes early* in the season when green bawl is especially welcome. Being b saline plant it requires sslt and the refuse brine from the |ork barrel will aid its growth and at the same time prevent weed* from springing up in the lied. An annual covering with manure in the fall will ensure a vig orous growtli each season. I'eas are •on frequently planted in small quan tities. Two or throe meals exhaust the crop of the average fnimcr in many parla of tbe country. Before the aivcnt of dwarf peas, there was si>me excuse for not growing thorn largely, as the labor of bushing them was no easy task ; but now, that varieties requiring no artificial sup port that arc good yicldera and of excellent quality are abundant, there ia no reason wiiy the farmer's table should not be supplied with them for at least two months in the season. TUB longer the rows, whether in tbe garden or in the field, the more economical the culture, because there la less turning about for the horse. At such a time he will always do some mischief, if possible, and vex tbe aoul of hia driver. A horse's cul ture seldom rises to the height of al ways putting hia feet down where they will do the moat good or the least barm, but with long rows lie ia leas tempted, and hia driver lea* liable to indulge tn profanity. OIVB the lambs a little mill feed in time of wintering. Valuo of Coal Aahoa. From tb#> Agricultural KtMnuiiei. The winter's accumulation of coal ashes has valuable properties for the farmer, and should IK: put to a better use than making foot-paths or Idling rnudholes. Their application as a mulch to the eurruiit and rasplwrry hushes will well repay the trouble. They retain the much needed moist ure for the use of the plants, and are a great aid to clean cultivation by the smoldering of small weeds and grasses. We remember years ago of having eaten frequently the most lucious plums from trees which were loaded, year after year, with full fine, fair fruit, without a mark or sign of curculio to be found on them. They stood in the garden of a gen tleman widely known in the politics j and public business of the country, ; who devoted some of Ids leisure time to horticultural mutters, and by Iris direction were treated to an annual j mulch of coal ashes spread thickly in a circle extending considerably j In-yond the reach of even the largest j branches, and tramped tlown hard. The "little turk"' finding such quar ters uncongenial to him abandoned I the unequal contest, and la-look him self to the trees of adjoining yar <len. whose owners had not discov ered the value of coal ashes. We do not doubt that currant worms may be ban'shed in the same way. In our own experience we find their application to meadows of grut la-ri- i efit. (Jrnssis benefi ed by mulching quite as much as bushes or trees; and though the chemists assert, and arc prepared to prove conclusively, that the coal ashes have little or no rnanurial value, we can show them s|lots where a liberal application of them, evenly spread, has unquestion ably doubled the yield of hay. If sifted and separated from the cinders and clinkers, they may he used upon the gardens which happen to be located u|sin heavy clay soil with very good results. Their me chanical effect in loosening and light ening the soil is very marked and desirable. Just now unsightly piles of coal ashes abound in every direc tion, and it will pay the farmer to make a judicious application of them j to his land. A Timely Huggcation A recent number of the Mirror and Farmer publishes nn article under the title of "I,and Improvement," from the pen of I'rof. Sanlmrn, of the New Hampshire Agricultural College, from which we extract a paragiaph of interest to owners of low, wet land : "I received seventy five bushels shelh-d corn per acre on the college farm, from ground never planted to o<>rn Iweause flat and wet, by la-ginning in the- centre of three and one-half reed In-ds, as marked out. ami plowing < to turn the furrow ten cither side of tile- centre toward-* each other.

On most farms n fl.eck of 12 to 40 hens will pick up a living without receiving n particle of grain from May to October, including leoth months. Their food consist* of in se-cts, secels, and grass or weeds; they nee-el fresh water besides. What wonder is it that fowls thus kept are demonstrably more profitable than any clasa of stock, or any crop on the farm. This is the best way to keep fowls, provided they csn IK- induce*! to lay where their eggs can lie feiund while fresh. To accomplish this a house of some kinel is needed where the fowls may be shut in occasionally for a f e-w days at a time, so as to make tlicm roost and lay in convenient places. If fowls can roost in the trees, lay all over the farm, anil "dust" themselves in Hie road, they will almoal surely be healthy, lay s great ma"y eggs, and keep in good condition. TUB practical farmer of the pres ent day is fully aware that the proper preparation of the soil is the first im portant step and that iqion this de pend* hi* success in procuring a good crop of corn. The wide-awake farmer, I venture to assert, will hreak up the soil for corn (or in fact for any crop), with none other than a Jointer attachment plow. Land broken up by these plows, if rightly done, la left in such an excellent condition, no matter how still the soil m*y be, that by the time the ha r row passes over it once or twice. It ia in a very mellow state, and in fine order for marking out and planting. Plow* of the above description are made by all first-clasa companies.—- Correspondent of Fatn and Garden.

It /tn M Tril/Uii*. iSuwduHt and cbijMlirt are alike in being finely divided wood, differing oi.iy in that tbe particle* of the form er nrc ran- lump* or mioute blocks • while in the latter these block* have Im < n disintegrated by long exposure to air, moisture and alternate warmth and cold, until all i* reduced to mere lofty shred* of carbon. The coro paralivc value and dbct of these two lorma of woody matter, used ma uurially, very forcibly illustrate the necessity of well airing the soil dur* ; lug the warm growing season. An old farmer understood this practical ly, if he had not searched out the -tcps of the theory, who used to say that the "soil must breathe." if we plow down raw sawdust, or any other shape of plain woody fibre, turning it under where there will be no circulation of air, poisonous fungi form upon it; and the plants whose roots traverse it sicken, turn yellow, and cease to grow. Hut if we use the same sawdust as a surface dress ing it does no harm. It will even do good, if spread thinly on grass, by suppressing broad leafed weeds and moss, nnd by mulching the blades of grass wh eh shoot up through it. Its good effects arc increased if it is mixed with nsiies to correct its acid and hast* n Its decay. If used as bedding in a stable and thus soaked with urine, it is still more serviceable and excellent as a niuleb around trees, but newly plant ed trees where mulched with fresh pine sawdust or shavings showed de cided marks of angering. Chipdirt, on the contrary, i, if well decayed and black, the very best dressing that can IK- applied to promote the growth of young trees or vines, or any mere growth of stem and leaves. Being already fully oxidized, it may be mixed through the whole body of soil, which it maintains in an o|>en, permeable condition while it is itself purely and entirely vegetable matter —the na-ural food of other plantr Boots luxuriate in it, and soon show by their increase of size and multi plication and gorge of feeding-points that they are deriving copious sup plies of acceptable material from the loose open stratum of carbonaceous matter kept damp by its light cover ing of soil. Look To Last Year's Grafts. Fr< u U4' wemunU-vii 7* ?*sra|k. Now is the time to examine the grafts set last year. In many case# it "ill be fount! that the stocks, by the growing of the grafts, have split ojien, exposing the inner wood, and admitting air and water. Thin should at once be tied lightly with strong twine, ami surrounded with fresh wax, removing any hard aubtance that may have gotten into the split. This will frequently repair the mis chief, olhciwiae the work will be n eye-sore and the parts never become firmly attached and make a good connection, and of course a |*erfect union. Frequently double the number of sciona are set that the slock will sus tain. These should be carefully gone over and the excess re mo. Ed, leaving those that spread somewhat from the slock. Unless the stock is stout say from two to four inches in diame ter— not more than two grafts should IK- left, and they should be as nearly as possible opposite to eaeh other. When the growth has la-en rapid the graft should !■ shortened. This will of course increase the number of branch* s and give the tree a more compact form. Two Paragraphs for Potato Grow ers. I'rof. Real, of the Michigan Agri cultural College, a* a result of teats made on the college ground*, names the following varieties an excellent potatocn for yield and quality: Beauty •if Hebron, Kearly I'eachblow, Bur bank'a Sett!lings and While Klepliant. In selecting potatoes for seed see that they arc sound, the eye (x'rfect, and fully developed in every respect. There in an much controversy now, as in unual at this season of the year, regarding cut (iotatoes or whole ones for planting, the greater number of writers seeming to favor needing with whole tuliern. The fact is that good whole potatoes are belter than those i list are cut, hut cut |K>tsloes are su perior in every respect to small whole potatoes, culling* or such as were deemed unfit lor table use. Wiis* a field or garden plot re wives suitable cultivation and yet fails to be reasonably productive it is evident that some irnportaul element of plant food la lacking. If manure has been applied in liberal quantities and yet the crops are not satifactory it will pay to make a trial of other fertilisers. In different sections of the field several different fertilisers should be employed in order to de termine as quickly as possible what imrticular elements are needed to in sure Uic production of paying crops. Tiieee may be two sides to the question whether it will pay the average farmer to grow fruit for the market, hut there can be only one opinion concerning the propriety of growing an abundant supply for home use.
