IlKMot-HAT, HelUfonte, J'enn'a," that other
farmera may have the. benefit of it. Let
Wnmunieatwn* be timely, and he sure that
they are brief and welt pointed.
Tim Fulton Farmer's Club advises
•telling a part of the corn crop, and
buying bran to mix with the remain
der for feeding milch cows.
Wr hear no report of the Hesaian
Ely this full. Was the drought of
last year which kept the wheat back
so late fatal to Ibis little pest ?
Harhkd wire for fencing promises
; to bo cheaper in the near future, the
monopoly which has heretofore kept
up the figures having been broken by
legal decisions.
TIIK balf-scoro or so of cormorants
! who have been making for themselves
i an unenviable notoriety by ad vocal
j ing an increase of import duties upon
seeds and fertilizers—two articles
j used exclusively by the already tax
j burdened farmer—liudbut little com
| fort in the result of the late Congres
sional elections.
The Klrnira Farmer's Club seems
to lie practically unanimous in favor
of orchard grass. They say that
"no other grass is so sure to glow
from seeding, and none d! 1 ar the
tramp of feet l>etter. No kind starts
quicker in spring and continues later
in fall, and none springs up more
rapidly after grazing."
W inter has been long coming,
and still it delays. i'i >*ib!y it * ill
come suddenly, ami woili nil the more
vigor because of this tardiness, it
is well, therefore, to make the wr
rangeroents for its advent a* com
plete as | oaaihle. Particularly let
the winter quarters for the st.,i k l
in readiness for housing them at an
! hour's no'W.
Not one farmer hi fiv,* knows or
i appreciate* the value • f ponltn ma
nure. It is almost equal to guano,
snd iNistiblv I alter tlinti some hi nds
lof tbi* much vaunted fertilizer. The
amount annually productd by a 11-sk
of fowls, if carefully saved, i* worth
fully one-half llu* cost >f the f.-cd.
Of course if tins is |>ermitted t.i be
scattered in the Ity-plact * <if the farm
—along the fences and undt r tlie
j trees, which aie used n* roosting
I plates—the great bulk of it is lost.
' One of the great advantages of a
proper poultiy-boose is the ability to
save the manure. Tliia is the time
to think up this subject. See "Fowl
House" in another colamn.
Ir the sheep arc to lie made the
most of, they must lie regularly well
fed during ail the winter. Particu
larly is this the ease with the ewes.
The double profit of a flrcce of firaf.
clasa wool and a good strong lamb
cannot lie expected without generous
feeding. The straw stack system will
not answer. (Jotsl hay ami corn
stalks will, if backed by a smalj daily
ration of grain. Nothing answers
better for this than corn and oats in
equal quanlitica. This cannot be lie
gun too aoon. While they are yet
on the late fall pasture, a gill or two
of the grain to each ewe will prove a
profitable investment, and when the
anow flies this may be doublet! with
great advantage. For aheep it is no
gain to grind the grain. Their di
gestive powers are of the heat, and
they can do their own grinding with
leas waste than any other farm stock.
It will be a mistake to withhold all
grain during the early part of the
winter, and then give a double por
tion for a short time. A bushel of
grain divided into half pints, and fed
regularly for a hundred and twenty
eight days will prove much more
prof)table than if fed a quart at a
time, aud all used up in a month,
leaving the animal without any for
the other three. *
CORN is the backbone of our agri
culture, the distinguished character
istic of American farming.
VARIETY in feeding does more for
the animal than excess of one kind
of food.
No Moro Onto Sutrffitig.
T*l* f"<| l
Home years ago our attention was
invited to what was considered as an
inevitable ami remediless evil of the
sagging of furm-gatcs, and the ques
tion was repeatedly put if farmers
were forever to submit to tlichc im
|H*rfeet means of entrance to their
fields, barnyards, etc.? Our reply
was that the time-honored "bars"
must Im- again adopted, for all tilings
considered, they were decidedly to be
preferred to these sagging gates.
W hat, indeed, is more annoying, than
a sagging gate ? 11 is forever out of
order. It maybe stiffened up one
day, urnl the next it will la-gin again
to droop ami in a little while to drag
again, and away goes a hinge, and
this costs time and money to repair.
'I here lets lately been, however, a
substitute introduced for Hie farm
gate, which is more efficient and con
venient, and which requires no hinges,
chains, clasps, or a gate post. It is
simply a pannel of fence made of inch
boards say four slabs six to tight
inches wide, nailed together by cross
pieces of the same, the cross-pieces
commencing about one foot from each
j end. At the back end of the pannel
two undressed cotnmr n fence-posts
are set, one, the ride on which the
| "gate is to open, about an inch and
J a half farther back, aud the pout- to
tie only about the same distance
apart. From one post o the other
suitable supports ale nailed, on which
I 'his end of the panel is to lest and
i move. At the head of the pannel an
ordinary fence-post is set, the holes
corresponding to the end of the
slabs in the panel, which can, if m.c
essary, be reduced a little in width
and the four are to fit in the holes of
the post.
This panel can Ik- moved easily—
can Is- earned round full v i equally
good a* a gate—has no posts to sag
—no hinge* to rust and break, or any
iron appliances in the way of a fast
ening at all snd will not cost more
than a sixth or tenth as much as an
ordinary gate. Am farmer, who can
handle a saw or drive a nail, ought
to la; able to make such an altuir
without lut I lit r instruction.

Making Good Pork.
Km Tor* Tint'*.
The first thing in order to make a
letter A pork product is to secure
the right breed of (Hirkers. Tastes
, differ on this point : We like the
small breeds, stub as" the Huff oiks,
Yokshirca and Essex. The old-fash
iAntsi ambition to tuake a hog weigh
500 pounds at IH months or 2 years
old was not profitable to the producer,
and the consumer certainly had "too
much pork for hia shillings." If a
pig can lie made to weigh 250 or 300
{rounds at 8 months, as the Suffolks
usually do, there is a saving of a
j ear's" keeping, and the |>ork iaofa
much better quality. We have eaten
none other than pig pork for four
yesrs, and desire to eat no more of
the big, atrong sort The Western
producers are finding the best market
for tbe small breeds, tbe spring pigs
of which arc fit for slaughter before
Christmas, weighing, when dressed,
250 pounds on an average, and fur.
dishing hams of about fifteen pound*
in weight, The early maturity of the
•mall lueeds give them a great ad
vantage over the latger kinds.
▲ Homemade Fertiliser.
The Roaton Journal of Chemistry
publishes an cxocllcnt formula for an
easily made fertiliser of great value
which may be profitably used a* a
substitute for the best ol those usually
found in the market. As "pure, raw,
finely ground boner' are not always
obtainable it is not amiss to say that
the whole bones and large pieces gen
erally to be found about a farm, may
be utilized in the ssme way.by giving
them a longer time in which to be
consumed by the potash of the ashes :
Take one barrel of pure, raw, finely
ground bones, and one barrel of tbe
j iH-st wood ashes; mix them on a
floor, and add gradually three pail
fuls of water, mixing thoroughly
with the hoe. Use in small quanti
ties in about the same manner as tbe
sii|>oi phosphates. Jf the ashes can
not be procured, dissolve twelve
pounds of potash in ten gallons of
hot water, and with this solution sat
urate the bone flour thoroughly ; a
barrel of dry peat or good loam,
without stones, may be added. Tbe
mixture should not be sticky, neither
100 moist nor toodry. In appHing
it avoid direct contact with the seed ;
for instance, when applied in the hill
| scatter a little earth over it before
dropping the seed. A very early
visible effect should not l<e snlicipat
<fd, but the good results will manl
iest themselves as the season ad
Attempting Too Much.
I V , irt K- IT. h tu'l J!ar%*t
It. is a question whether most far
mers arc nut attempting too much.
I he crops largely grown<rt*qitire more
labor than formcily,especially pots
' toe*. Ihe tunc sjM-nt in keeping a
li> Id of potatoes clear of bugs would
do rnueb towards cultivating it. if it
could l>c so used. 1 In* result is small

verse woul I IK- much more profitable.
I have tins year si* acres less of |>o
t:it** than a u*nr ago, but I hope to
have more bushels. Next year I shall
plant four less than tins year, and
still get more j iota toes and certainly
more profit than from the larger acre
g*. " There is profit in all labor,"'
is it sat ing as old us Solomon, but
where so much of the lalior has to be
hired, and the laltorers hoarded, a
great deal of the profit must lie part

Clean t r p th j Roadsides.
11.1- ss. To. .
Some farmers np|iear to forget that
their land extends to the middle of
the roadway, and that they have
light* and duties in connection with
(Hie roadside*. At this season it is
eouiini'ii to find the largest wevds in
jibe neighborhood by tlie wa.tside.
Tluy have had it all their own way,
! this has l>een to lipvn a latgc
crop of seeds. Such neglect of the
torn!side i* a great mistake, a* it not
only give* a neglected np|H-arance to
the stieet, but is a mean* of propA
gating wi-eils that do much daniage
to tbe cro|s in the adjoining fields.
It does not matter how clean the cul
tivated crop may be kept, it weeds
are left to grow just over the fence.
It is too late now to do more than

When stock first goes into winter
quarter* they nerd stronger food
than after they bsve become used to
the change. They should always
have a little grain when first put into
the stables if they do not have it ail
the time. It is |>oor policy to lei an
imals run down at the beginning of
winter. Flesh thus lost is hard to
regain, and costs a great deal more to
replace than to keep. A strong ani
mal carries with it a vigorous appe
tite, hence, when it becomes accus
tomed to dry feed il is easier to win
ter than if the change hail I teen more
abrupt. 1 have fed all my cows lhu
far a little meal, and have gradually
reduced the quantity with tba drv
ones. Thia plan baa kept them iiv
condition, ami now they will do well
on the fodder corn and straw.
ETERNAL vigilance only will keep
down the vermin nuisance in a chick
en house.
