the ftli *||jlication mower* well, hilt
| on light aumly aoiU an A|i|>lic'ilioa in
the tipping hn been found to he very
i benetleinl. In order t deinonitnle
the value of ppring fertilizing, Mr.
; Francis Sanderson commenced a
series of e*|HTimenis, the results of
j which he publishes in toe Amerlran
Fanner, which are Imjtortant to all
I farmers who make wheat growing a
i The wheat, wliich was grown on
| clay loam roil, was dressed in the fall
1 with BOW pounds of good fertilizer
per acre. The land had previously
produced a cirn crop, and hud been
manured anil dressed with liuie. In
( the rfiring, however, a slight applies
tion of ptioaphate of kaioil was a}-
plied. Departing fium the above reg
ular method, in the spring of 138*2
ten seres of wlj#fc were dressed with
lOh pounds of phosphate and the
same quantity of kainit, and in one
month a marked dilfcrtnce waa
noticed on the ten acres so treated
—it being of a darker hue and of
stronger growth. At harvest it was
found that the wheat that had receiv
ed the spring application of fertilizer
waa heavier and the heads larger and
longer than on that portion which
had received no spring application ;
i and when this wheat was thrashed it
was found to be brighter ami heavier,
the yield being thirty six bushels of
mcasure.i wheat per acre, weighing
*>2\ pounds per bushel, while the
wheat grown close by on the same
soil, but without this top dressing,
did not do so well by five bushels.
The first wheat was sold for seed and
brought five cents per butLel more
fhan the other.
Now as to the cusL The applies
iiou of 20li pounds of fertilizer in
volved mi . *j use not only for ms
leual twit for lalior ; but the extra
yield by tlii* slight application (only
twenty (tounds per acre), and the ex
tra price paid for the wheat, paid for
all the fertilizer used on the ten acres.
In is*:} about 2Hj, acres were again
put in wrheat, 20 acres of which was
corn ground, and 8) acres was potato
and drilled corn ground. This last 1
lieing in fine tilth anil rich no spring
application was given. This waa a '
mistake, aa the straw was not stiff
enough io the joints, and the wheal
fell down. Had kinit been applied '
such a difficulty would have hen
avoided. As it war, a few dollars.
were raved in fertilizer and many lost
from failure in yield. The twenty '
acres of corn-ground wheat, which '
did not look nearly so promising, was
divided into two equal parts, staked
at each end. On one part 200 pounds
of nitrate ol soda per acre was used,
and on the other 200 pounds of kain
it and 100 pounds of phosphate per
sere. The wheal where the soda was
grew faster and ripened a few days
earlier and the yield waa good, pro
ducing twenty-eight bushels |r acre
of fine, bright wheal. llut the part
where the kainit and phosphate were
applied yielded thirty-two and three
quarter bushels per acre of equally as
I good, bright wheat. The clover and
! timothy crop on the field waa also as
good as could be desired,
j The fertilizers should not be ap
plied 100 early io the spring, when the
heavy rains occur, as they are very
soluble and may be washed off, nor
ebould they be applied too late, aa
they require quite an amount of
moisture. April le about the right
time, but the wheat should be dressed
in the spring at whatever time la most
favorable without regard to coat or
riak, aa the increased yield of grain
J and larger quantity of straw will be
r. ore than an equivalent for the ex

The suggestion cannot IK- too f e
quenily offered to farmers as to the
• xpt-dicncy and profitableness of rais
ing more poultry—al least take as
much as they sre now doing. The
business, if pro|x-rly conducted, can
become one of the most lucrative
branches upon the farm, especially
when wiilti ii easy r< aching distance
of the Philadelphia or other gin d
rnaikels. It ought to be known to ail
American farmers the extent to which 1
the business is prosecuted In Frame,
where, from a careful estimate, it is
j found that the nnnuul sales of JKAUI
try ami eggs last year amounted to '
between eighty and ninety millions
of dollars, which would, if equally
divided among the entire population,
give to each between two and thne'
dollars. \\ hen it Is considered that
this is a branch of farming industry
that can lie managed entirely by
women and children, and requires
very little capital, the wonder is that
it is not prosecuted to twice the ex
tent that it is. The chicken house
should be lnes|>ensive, but roomy,
| well ventilated ami cleanly. Every
part of the lood con he supplied by i
offals of the farm, garden and house,
and the time required m-ed not he
laki iftrom the necessary working of
the farm, and would reallv not be f It
' ns a part of the farm labor. Resides,
I there would be an obsolute pleasure
! in raising fowls of every kind, even
1 pigeons, the squab* of which sell at
the very high price of from forty to
i fifty cents per brace. As to the dis
posal of poultry in the markets, who ,
I has ever known of a surplus or of
' its being sacrificed for want of cus
' tomers T It is true that opon very ,
large farms poultry raising is looked '
upon as being in the way and not '
worth the trouble , but as a rule it is j
i only upon such farms, and but a
•mall portion of them where this
really pleasant pastime is not enjoyed
and the pnidacts of it quietly and ,
1 cheerfully put in the pockets of the
1 mother and children, where it will
be ever ready to meet the many ncc
cssary and indispensable outlays.

Horse* for Farm Work.
Breeding first class horses for farm j
work is sn easy mstkr on farms that
have large pasture*, for colts can be '
, raised at a small cost where the farm,
er is fortunate in possessing good
: grazing field* and plenty of graas
' Hut in raising a colt everything de
pend* ujion the purpose/for which it
is iutcuded. Some farms sre so situ- ■
aled that the horses used thereon !
must posses* strength as well a* the
I ability to move quickly. The sizs of
our horses bas It-en greatly increased
of late years by the crossing of our
native stock with the Clydesdale and
Norman, but the object was heavy
' draught rather than speed. Such
j horses are not well adapted for car
riage service or for the saddle. The
, average farmer, on the score of ex
, pense, desires to keep bis horses for
general work, sod in order to improve
bis ttock he must select, fo r the par
- poses of improvement, animals that
■ combine as many desirable qualities
; as possible.
The chief requirement at present is
a breed of walking horses—borers
that move quickly ats walk. Such a
strain lias not been established, but a
foundation has been laid by selecting
the Denmark*. Not that Denmark
was particularly noted for fast walk
log himself, but that quality seems to
be inherent to a certain degree in his
descendants, just as the sons of Ilam
bletooiso are famous as trotters,
while their sire possessed no record
st all. Denmark was a thorough
bred. sired by imported Hedgford,
who also sired Blue Bonnets, the dam
of the noted racers, Ligbtuing, Thun
der and Ixmcaatcr. Hy carefully
breeding to the speediest travelers of
this strain the walking gait may be
bred in our farm stock as well aa wc
can increase the power to draw heavy
loads or trot on the roads.
Many farmers make a mistake in
breeding to trotting sires with s view
of procuring good fkrm horses. The
trotter will improve the character of
the ordinary stock, but trotters are
not always bred from trotting sires.
It requires training end yean of prac
tice sometimes to develop s trotter,
end the farmer usually bee no time
to devote to such matters. Few trot
ting ajkes sre so fortunate sa to pro
(luce a first das* trotter. Tb# great
•Smuggler, the f.i* c-t of trotting
"ires, bun been almost forgotten,
owing to liis failure as a aire, arid hut
few fat colts or fillies can be credit
ed even to Harold, the aire of Maud
8. '1 he attempt to hreed colts
adapted to Irotli the road and the
farm sometimes results ID nothing of
value for any purpose.
An experienced breeder of farm
horses gives s bis opinion tlmt the
best animal for the farm is that pro
duced by crossing the thoroughhrtd
(the running horse) on large course
marc*. I f the mares are partiy Nor
man or Clydesdale so mm h the bet
ter; but the use of the ihoroughtned
i insures starnins,endurance snd vigor
; The small inti hard bones of the
( thoroughbred are heavily coveted
with muscle, and the horses of tl a'
breed are futuous for Courage, *p< i d
and j>ovver. The cross produces a
horse very similar to the <*h velsu's.
and such horses are not only well
adapted for nearly all purp seson tlie
farm, but do not fail till well advanc
ed in years.

Cost of Kuoptng Sheep
The cost of keeping sheep i not
great, says a Correspondent ! the
A mrrif'in CWfii it;r, as a half dor., n
sheep will live where one cow would
find enough, and as they eat cosrtei
food than the cow they would subsist
in many pastures where cow* would
starve, if it is desired to fatten old
sheep, or force early lambs for mar
ket, a few roots ami a little grain
do it easily. It is estimated that
sheep will thrive well upon 3} per
cent, of its weight of good hay daily
during the wiuter. Thus a sheep of
j 100 pounds weight will need iu five
