farmer's 3 eyailment.
Paint your Implements.
Tin- primary agent in all decomposition of :
organic matter is oxygen. Without its pros-'
once under norma! circumstances, no change '
takes place. IJnt this oxygen, in atmospheric |
air, is everywhere present and decay under its |
destructive influence is always going on. To
exclude the air then, from all bodies we wish
to preserve, is the first requisite. In nothing
it the rule of more practical importance than
in the preservation of wood. Filling the ex
terior cells of wood with paint is perhaps the
cheapest means of retarding its decay. This
is well understood and generally acted upon in
the construction of all new implements. There
is, however, one point which appears to he for
gotten, or at least to he generally disregarded.
Paint, by the action of air, and rain, is wash
ed out of the pores, and when tliis is the case,
the work of destruction proceeds, we believe,
more rapidly than tho' the wood had never
been painted. English instruments are much
more costly than American, and this may bp
the reason why they take better care of thorn.
Though paint is more expensive than with us,
they arc in the habit' of thoroughly washing
and cleaning wagons, carts, harrows, cultiva
tors, and in fact every wooden implement on
the farm, every other year, andgivingitagood
coat of red-lead paint. It is astonishing how
long their implements last. Many of them
look as though they had been handed down
from father to son for several generations. In
no matter of economy do farmers miss it more
than in allowing their implements to go with a
deficiency of paint. We venture to say, that
a wagon frequently washed and cleaned, and re
ceiving a coat of paint every fall, will last twice
as long as one never washed, except by being
allowed to remain out in the rain, and never
repainted except with dirt.
Reader, you have a paint can and brushes ;
at least it is to he presumed you have, for no
intelligent farmer would be without tlieni, and
an unintelligent farmer would not be found
reading the " Rural." If you have not done
so already, get your paint and brushes, wash
your implements ; scrape off all the blisters,
stop up all the holes with putty, then give
your wagons, drags, cultivators, plows, wheel
barrow, (for of course you have one,) roller,
seed-drill, neck-yokes, and whittle a coat of
paint. The expense will not be much. The
implements would look as good as new, your
hired men would take more care of them, and
you will save by this single operation, from the
increased durability of your implements, more
in the course of a dozen years than would make
yon a life subsciber to half a score of the best

Soil best Adapted to Wheat.
All of our commonly cultivated plants are
composed of precisely the same elements, the
only chemical difference between the vast
variety of plants being the relative proportions
in which the same elements unite to form the
plant; so that if a soil will produce any one
of our cultivated crops, it possesses the capacity,
so far as the elements of plants are concerned,
of growing any other crop to some extent. —
In judging of the best to lie cultivated on any
particular soil, therefore we have to look to
the relative proportion in wl i h the elements
of plants exist in the soil, and adopt the class
of plants which requires most of the particular
elements in which the soil abounds, or requires
at least of those in which it is deficient. This
would seem to be a common sense view of the
subject, yet there are many other circumstances,
often overlooked, which, if considered would
materially affect our conclusions. In a large
crop of corn there are all the elements which
a large crop of contains, and also in large
quantities yet arc thousands of acres of land
that produce immense crops of corn that can
not lie profitably cultivated with wheat. A
good wheat soil will always produce a good
crop of corn, if properly tilled, while much of
our best corn land will not produce wheat un
der ordinary culture. The cause of this great
difference is not, we have shown, owing to a
deficiency in the soil of any element of the
wheat plant, for the requirements of the corn
crop are indentical in kind and greater in
quantity than that of wheat. It must, there
fore, be owing either to the maimer in which
the various elements are assimilated by the plant,
or to the existence in the soil of some sub
stance which, though sufficient, it may exist in
a corn soil for the actual demands of the wheat
crop, yet from the different habits of the two
plants, a much larger quantity may be necessary
for the performance of the healthy functions of
the wheat than the corn plant. This substance
is most probably clay ; for all soils, which
experience proves to be the best adapted to
wheat culture, abound with this substance and
liinc. The reason why clay is so much more
necessary and beneficial for wheat than for corn,
is not clearly understood.
In light soil the wheat plant is found to
throw its lateral roots very near the surface,
while in a clayey or heavy soil it is more in
clined to top, and the lateral, fibrous roots are
at a greater depth. In the former case the
plant would be more likely to heave out in the
spring, while in the latter it would be better
able to stand the vicissitudes of cold and heat,
from the roots being at a greater depth, and
having a firmer hold of the soil. It is there
fore probable that one of the benefits which
the wheat plant derives from clay isitsprevei. *
ing the extension of fibrous surface roots, and
forcing the plant to grow out a single t ip root,
which descends much deeper and takes a firm
er hold of the soil.
If this is a right view of the subject, we
should loosen the sub-soil of all our wheat
fields, by deep plowing and sub-soiling ; while
on soils rather too light for wheat, every
possible means should be used to render the
soil compact and firm. Treading the wheat in
the fall with sheep has been practised with ad
vantage ; but in doing so, caution is necessary
to prevent serious injury in case winter imme
diately sets in. On all soils which produce
good crops of corn, we believe wheat may be
grown, insomuch as there is nothing lacking
which enters into the wheat plant, and all that
is necessary is to impart to the soil a certain
degree of texture and tenacity, which all good
natural wheat soil possesses. For this purpose
heavy rollers and other mechanical means must
he employed, and pressor something similar to
Crossbill's Clod Crusher, of which we have
often spoken, would be of great benefit. We
do not wish to be understood to say that con
solidation is the only thiug necessary in all
all cases, to insure a wheat crop on soil where
com, barley and oats ilourish ; for the land
may m the winter be so wet as to destroy the
p ant ; yet, it draiued and means be taken to
render the surface compact, we believe such
' ,VOilld produce first-rate crops of wheat. I

A imttle of your Forest Wine and box of Fills, which

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

conhl not obtain any permanent relief from any medicine
1 had taken, or my physician, until your Wine and Fills
were procured. The lirst dose of the Fills brought up from
my stomach, much phlem and greenish matter, and mv
stools were perfectly black. 1 then commenced taking
your Forest Wine three times a day. my appetite began to
return immediately, my cough It-It me, and in less than
two weeks 1 was almost well. 1 now enjoy better health
than 1 ever did before, having increased twentv-five pounds
in seven weeks. Your Forest Wine and Fills are highh
valued in this vicinity, and I owe my recovety entirely to
their virtues. " Yours, respectfully,
