Suwiug Caru Fodder BriUiiig- Deep,
' It is an ill triad tliat Uo~3 i.o one any
poo-'i," through a uite proverb h often verified j
in the experience of iht* forntr . V e believt ■:
it will be found true, a~ rc-gard: the effects of
the late verv severe winter on our Mowing aud
pasture tiekis, the alternations of which troin
mild to extreme ould, iogetlitr v.ith the siu-di.
amount of snow fallen, a-ting as a protective
covering to the ground, having apparently killed j
out the grass, especially in fields recently seedou \
uovvn. Roots of both gr:ra~ and wheat iniiy be
seen in rnauv farina of eastern Rcnntyivauia ;
laying on the surface of the ground. Leaved up .
by the frost, entirely dead ; and tiii.-. too. at a
tune when wheut is north £2.-<0 per bu.-Lel..
and beef and butter higher than for many
rears, t here -are two or three practical iiilcr
ences suggested by these facts which we w'.: h i
to call attention to. We say facts. bee a ewe
they arc- plain and obvious to every fanner on
his own farm, arid may prove, if wisely reflect
ed upon aud digested, more valuable than many
pages of reading.
Ist. Tlr hare Inown, thi: priug, fields of
wheat apparently almost killed out. with the.
roots lying on the surface, the seed having been
sown broadcast, adjoining other fields looking j
green and healthy where the seed had been
drilled, no roots in the latter, comparatively, j
having been heaved up by the frost. This we i
consider a strong argument in favor of drilling, ■
which puts the seed in deej>er, with more regu
larity and even near, the small rises between the
rows mouldering down during tlie winter and
covering the wheat as required for protection,
llere is one practical deduction of groat
2d. It has also been found that on those
fields where the ground was deeply plowed or
sabsoilcd to the depth of eight to twelve inches, i
these effects of a severe winter, which will
shorten the hay and pasture crop at least one
third. and in some cases probably one-half,
have not been observed to the same extent as
on others. This we consider a second practical
deduction of great importance.
The 2d poiut we have to make is a reined;/
for this state of things fortunately within reach,
and which will go far to make up the loss, viz :
where the grass has been observed to be thus
killed out, plow up the fields immediately, and
sow com for fodder. It has been fully proven
that nothing will; turn off so much agreeable, \
provender, aud nutrieious and palatable to
stock, as sown fodder. By successive sowings j
a supply can be kept up the whole season, and 1
for cows, when fed green, it is fully equal to!
the best pasture, and will make as much aud as !
rich milk and butter.
We have frequently urged upon our readers
the importance of the corn fodder crop, aud as
the present is a most opportune period for the |
experiment, we hope they will give it a trial.— I
There are two methods of puttiug in the crop, j
by drilling in rows and by broadcasting. We ,
prefer the former, and would recommend, after
the ground has been well {flowed and thoroughly •
pulverized, rows should be struck out one way, '
two and a half or three feet apart, and the j
corn strewed along at the rate of about three j
bushels to the acre. The seed may readily be j
covered with a cultivator or harrow passing :
parallel with the rows. When the corn is about \
a foot high, run the cultivator along once or j
twice to clean out the weeds, anil no farther j
attention will be required, as the ground will j
soon be covered and yield a product of ten to i
twelve tons to the acre, and more, douendimi i\p i
the strength of the soil.
The above is substantially the plan recoui-;
mended by J. J. Thomas, aud we believe to be j
the beet. George Walker of Susquehanna !
county,how ever.prefers the broadcasting system,
and give 6 his method of managing it and his :
product iu one of our back numbers. If the j
soil is not in good condition, it will pay well
to spread three hundred pounds of guano to :
♦be acre previous to plowing. Much of the
fodder crop may be got off in time to seed with
wheat next fall if desired.— Farm Journal.
G RAITING GRAPE VlNES. —Grape viues have
often been grafted with good success. But the
operation should not be performed until the I
season has advanced considerably—until the j
viue to be grafted has leaved out—say in !
ordinary seasons, about the 10th of June !
Should the attempt be made early in the season,
the excessive flow of sap would be in the way
of success ; however, after the young shoots
?;et pretty well started, the sap ceases to flow
rom a wound or cut made iu the wood of the
vine. The mode ordinarily adopted ingrafting
large apple-tree—cleft grafting—is a good way
to do it. When the body of the vine is of a
regular Bhape at the surface of the guund, it
would be well to saw it off close to the ground,
and, after inserting the scions and applyiug the
wax, to clear the dirt up over the end of the
stock, leaving only about half of the length of
the scions out of the grouud. Where this
manner of performing the operation, owing to
circumstances, is not practicable, the trunk may
be taken off higher up. Small, short jointed
cuttings, taken from vines at the wiuter prun
ing should be used for scions—they can easily
be kept till the time arrives for using them,
covered with 6and in a cool cellar.
Vines thus grafted have been known to
produce the first season, shoots or canes from
fifteen to twenty feet in legth. If the wood
of the vine in question proves to be firm and
healthy, it can, without donht, be grafted with
ajjAtiflfuctory result. — Ontario Co. Times.
M IX&E IN CATTLE. —The disorder termed the
mange arises from the excitement of the skin,
probably brought on by disarrangement of the
organs of digestion in consequence of poverty,
engendered by hunger and want of shelter.—
After these are supplied, a wash made of gun
powder and water—charcoal, nitre andsulpher
—will be found a valuable application. Mange
iB an infectious disorder ; remove therefore the
sick beast from the rest of the herd.— Boston
found the following a certain antidote for in
sects, or fungus, on vines and fruit trees :—1 lb.
sulphar, 2 lbs. soft soap, 1 gallon tobacco
water, and 2 gallons lime water ; mix, to paint
over all the wood.
THREAD.—A single pound of flaxen thread, in
tended for the finest specimens of Freeh lace,
U valued at tux hundred dollars, and the length
of thread is about two hundred aud twentv
-811 miles. One pound of this thread is more I

till they do they do their office ill. ller blood is vitiated,
her health is gone. Give her these Pills to stimulate the
vital principle into renewed vigor, to cast out tin-obstruc
tions, and infuse a new vitality into the blood. Now look
again—the roses blossom on her cheek, and where sorrow
sat, joy bursts from every feature. See the sweet infant
wasted with worms. Its wan, sickly features tell you
without disguise, and painfully distinct, that they are eat
ing its life away. Its p'uu-heil-up nose and ears, and rest
less sleeping-. Ull the dreadful truth in language which
every mother knows. Give it the Pills in large doses to
sweep these vile parasites from the body. Now turn again
and see the ruddy bloom of childhood. Is it nothing to
do these things? Nay, are they not the marvel of this
age ? And yet they are done arouud you every day.
Have you the less serious symptoms of these distempers,
they are the easier cured. Jaundice, Costivc-uess, Head
ache, Sidem he. Heartburn, Foul Stomach, Nausea, Pain
in the Boweis, Flatulency, Loss of Appetite, King's Evil,
Neuralgia. Gout, and kindred compioiuts all arise from the
derangements which these Pills rapidly cure. Take them
perseveriiigly, and under the counsel of a good Physician
if you can ; "if not, take them judiciously by such advice
as we give you, ami the distressing, dangerous diseases
tlicy cure, which affi ict so many millions of the human race,
are cast out like the devils of old—they must burrow in
the brutes and in the sea. Price 25 cents per box—s boxes

Through a trial of many years and through every nation
of civilized me, Avon's ('UU:KV PECTORAL has I* en found
to afford more relief aud to cure more cases of pulmonary
disease than any other remedy known to mankind. Casta
of apparently settled Consumption have been cured by it.
and thousand- of sufferers who were deemed beyond the
reach of human aid have been rc -torcd to their friend.-and
usefulness, to sound health and the enjoyments of life, by
this all-powerful antidote to diseases of the lungs and
throat. Here a cold had settled on the lungs. The dry,
hacking cough, the glassy eye, aud the pale, thin feature
of him who was lately lusty and strong whisper to all but
him CONSUMPTION. He tries everything ; but the disease
is gnawing at his vitals, and shows its fatal symptoms
more and more over all his fame. He is taking the Cher
ry Pectoral uow it has stopped his cough and mada his
breathing easy : his sleep is sound at night: hi- appetite
returns, and with it his strength. The dart which pierced
hi.- side is broken. Scarcely any neighborhood can be
found which has not some living trophy like this to shad
ow forth the virtues which have won for the Cherry Pec
toral an imperishable renown. Influenza, Croup," Bron
chitis. Hoarseness, Pleurisy, Whooping Cough, aud all ir
ritations of the throat and" lungs arc easily cured bv the
Cherry Pectoral if taken in season. Every family should
have it by them, and they will find it an idvaltiahle pro
tection from the insidious prowler which carries off the
parent sheep from many a flock, the darling lamb from
many a home.

of which does more good, and goes further in the cure of
Disease, than ton bottles of any Sarsaparilla in use. and

The method by which all Sarssaparillas.and other simi
lar medicines are prepared. is by boiling the Roots of plants
to obtain the extracts. Their medicinal virtues are thus
principally evaporated and destroyed.
It is not to be wondered at then, that 10 and even 20
hottles of these Sarsaparillas arc sometimes taken without
any perceptible benefit. Not so with the Forest Wine.
by the invention of a wonderful chemical apparatus, a per
fect wine is produced without beating ; retaining, at the
same time, ail the primitive healing properties of the rare
medicinal plants of which it is composed, thus rendering
the Forest Wine the most efficient medicine the world ever
produced, at the same time time the most agreeable.
This is to certify, that I have used I)r. Halsey's Forest
Wine in my family with the most entire success. My wife
was badly afflicted with Neuralgia, affections of the Spine
and Kidneys, and general Debility. She found speedy re
lief, and regained her health by* the use of the Forest

advised her to take your Forest Wine. Accordingly I
went to Mr. Terry's, your agent in this town, and procur

A bottle of your Forest Wine and box of Pills, which
I procured of James Carr. (your agent for this place,) ha
rt <ne wonders for me. 1 had been in a state of decline for
more than a year, afflicted with a dreadful cough, pain
in the breast, general debility, and loss of appetite. I be

room for more than two months; my friends told me *1

could not obtain any permanent relief from any medicine
I had taken, or inv physician, until your Wine aud Pills
were procured. Tlir first dose of the Pills brought up from
my steniach. much phiem and greenish matter, aud my
stools were perfectly black. 1 then commenced taking
your Forest Wine three times a day, my appetite began to
return immediately, my cough left me", and in less than
two weeks 1 was almost well. I now enjoy better health
than I ever did before, having increased twenty-five pounds
m seven weeks. Your Forest Wine and Pills are highly
valued iu this vicinity, and I owe mv recovery entirely to
their virtues. Yours, respectfully,
