MR. EDITOR :—I ewe heard of an honest,
well-uiefttriiijr man, who was fortunate euou<>h i
to IKS eleeted Captain of a Militia Company.
F.lled to the brim with military ardor, he pro
eeedel to the front yard of his house for the
purpose of going through-the manual exercise:
alone. Whether his knowledge of military tac
tics was not altogether perfect, 1 have not been
informed ; but bis first order to himself was,
" advance three paces backwards !" and suiting
the action to the word, he did advance back
ward, and tumbled heels over head into the cel
lar. His wife observing his unlucky descent,
cried out, "my dear, are you hurt ?" The fal
len soldier, casting a glance of supreme con
tempt on his spouse, indignantly replied, "(!o
to grass, old woman, what do you Know about
It occurs to mc that there are a great many
farmers in this world, whose progress, like our
military friend's above quoted, is decidedly back
ward. Whenever I see a farmer wlio refuses
to pay a dollar for a good agricultural periodi
cal merely because bis father farmed without
one, I am strongly inclined to think he is ad
vancing backward. Whenever I see a farmer
"spreading himself' by attempting to farm two
hundred acres, when his means are scarcely suf
ficient for one hundred, I cannot help thinking
that he is "advancing backward"
Whenever! sec a fine meadow overrun with
sorrel and meagre blue grass, instead of tfill tim
othy or some other good grass, it always oc
curs to nie that its owner is " advancing bark
wards." Whenever I sec a farmer selling ev
ery ton of hay and straw, and every bushel of
wheat he raises, and afterwards endeavoring to
keep his land in good heart by applying only
the manure of his own farm yard, and by plow
ing five inches deep, it needs not a prophet to
predict that he is "advancing backwards."
Whenever I see a farmer sowing timothy, clo
ver or any other grass seed, in which the seeds
of foul weeds abound, when for a shilling or
twenty-five cents more lie could have purchased
good clean seed, it always occurs to me that he
is " advancing backwards." Whenever I see
a fanner in this progressive age, delaying from
year to year the purchase of good labor saving
implements, and urging as a plea for the latest
improvement," I always feel afraid that he is
"advancing backwards ." Whenever I see n
farmer feeding his hay, straw and fodder uncut,
when a few dollars would purchase a good cut
ter, I strongly suspect that he is "advancing
backwards." Whenever I sec a farmer's fields
covered with pernicious weeds, and those weeds
permitted to ripen and sow their seeds for the
next season, I have every reason to believe tliat
the owner of those fields is "advancing back
wards." Whenever I see a farmer's fences bro
ken down, his cattle trespassing in the grain and
cornfields, the hogs uprooting the potatoes, and
the chickens in indisputable possession of the
garden, it is not difficult to perceive that he is
" advancing backwards."
But when I sec a farmer who feels that lie
has something yet to learn—who takes one or
more agricultural papers—who pays for them
and reads them—who tills no more land than
he can till well—whose meadows are well drain
ed, and covered with heavy sweet grass—who
always reserves enough hay, straw and grain to
replace in a great part, at least the vegetable
mutter his crops have taken from his soil—who
is willing to pay a dollar more for a bushel of
clean seed rather than sow that which contains
weeds—who, instead of " waiting for years for
the latest improvement,'* is amongst the first to
test the value of new labor saving implements
—who cuts all his hay, straw and fodder before
feeding—whose fields arc not overrun with
weeds, and who never permits a weed to mature ;
its seed where it is possible to prevent it—whose I
fences arc always in good repair—whose grain
and corn ficld3 are never trespassed upou by Ins i
or his neighbor's cattle—Whose garden is not
only well cultivated, but also never invaded and
destroyed by mischievous fowls—who is syste
matic in his feeding, seeding and breeding—who
keeps a regular farm accounts—who rises early,
and who has strong faith in the old but truth
ful adage that " the eye of the master is worth
both his hands," 1 say when I see such a farm
er, there is no difficulty in understanding that,
Unlike onr military friend above quoted, he is ad
vancing not" backward," but straight forward,
and in the right direction for complete success,
and will, most assuredly, Go AHEAD.

foil, and forms combinations that can render
SECOND. It fixes part of the atmosphere,
forming nitric acid, from it making nitrate of
THIRD. Nitric acid contains the same essen
tial elements as ammonia, and is capable of be
ing converted into it or the plant.
Forttftt. Useful directly to a certain extent
for the nourishment of the plant.
FIFTH. It is particularly useful on gravelly
soils, and on clayey soils devoid of lime.
SIXTH. Lime and barn-yard manure should
not be mixed in the barn-yard, inasmuch as the
lime causes too sudden decoaijiQsiticßi, and con
sequent loss of ammonia which is driven off by
the lime to be received by the air.
Charcoal Bust is quite valuable on a manure
heap, as it fixes the ammonia and other gases,
which otherwise to a great extent would bo was
ted. The coal dust should be scattered on when
dry ;if wet the pores of the coal being filled
with water cannot then receive the ammonia.
This fact is valuable to all masters of char
coal furnaces and farmers within five or ten
miles of the same, inasmuch as- the dust- and
braes from coal pits—wasted yearly—would
benefit very many farmers at a comparatively
small cost, if properly applied.
Hons.—o ive them occasionally a tablc
apoonful! of a compound, three parts ashes and
one of salt, for each hog, mixed with their food,
and it will destroy the kidney worms. For
costiveness, with which they arc often affected,
take copjieras, pulverised and put in a skillet,
and jait it over a quick fire ; it will soon lioil ;
then stir it till well take it off to cool;
then pulverise it aud give to each hog a table
spoonfull as often as the excrement shows them
to be costive. It can be used with milk or
other food. _
HOGS ROOTING. —To prevent hogs from root
ing, cut across the snout, by which you will sev
er the nasal tendon, by which the ojieratiou is
performed. Then split the gristle of the nose up
and down the face, aud the work is done. For
the long-nosed, flap-eared breed, cut the nose
off eighteen inches alove the snoqt,

the jKtwer of retaliation aud uot to exercise it.

Dll. JIALSKYS' FOREST WINE.—The
discovery of the FOREST WINK i- the greatest Mi s
singof the age. Put up in Quart U -ttles. a single bottle
of whieli d'M's more good, and goes further in the cure of
Disease, than ton bottles.of auy Sar-aparilla in use, ami
warranted to cure without an unpleasant or Weakening
The method by which all Sarssn pari lis s. and other simi
lar medicines are prepared, is by lio:'"n- r the Hoots of plants
to obtain the extracts. Their nxviieiaa! virtues tire thus
principally evaporated and destroyed.
It is not to tie wondered at then, that 10 and even 20
bottles of these Harsapnrilhs are sometimes taken without
any perceptible henetit. Not so with the Forest Wine.—
By" the invention of a wonderful chemical apparatus, a per
fect wine is produced without heating: retaining*, at the
same time, all 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 1 have used Dr. Hnlscy's Forest
Wine in my family witli the nr>st entire snceess. My wife
was hailiy *aflti<'ted with Neuralgia, affections of the Spine
and Kidneys, and general Debility. Site found speedy re
lief, and regained her health by the use of the Forest
From my own knowledge of this excellent medicine, I
confidently recommend it for the good of others who may
lie suffering from similar complaints. It is the medi
cine with which 1 am acquainted, and those who are afflic
ted with the alsive, or auy similar disease, may safely re
ly on its virtues. E. G. jfUSSEY.
MOKE TESTIMONY FROM CO HOES.
DR. O. W. H AI.SK v—Dear Sir: My wife Inst autumn was
reduced to a low state of Debility. My family physician
advised her to take your Forest Wine. Accordingly I
went to Mr. Terry's, your agent in this town, and procur
ed a bottle of it, which restored her in a very short time
to perfect health.

DREADFUL COUGH. PEiill.lTY, ANI) LOSS OF
DR. IIAI.SEY: Hempstead, Dee. 1,1547.
A bottle of your Forest Wine and box of Pills, which
I procured of James Carr, (your agent for this place,) has
done wonders for me. I 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. 1 be
eame almost a skeleton, anil had been unable to leave my
room for more than two months; niv friends told me 1
had the Consumption and despaired of my recovery. I
could not obtain any permanent relief from any medicine
I had taken, or ray physician, until your Wine and Pills
were procured. The first dose of the f'ills brought up from
my stomach, mnch phleni and greenish matter, and my
stools were perfectly Mack. 1 then commenced taking
your Forest Wine three times a day, my appetite began to
return immediately, my cougb left me, and in less than
two weeks i was almost well. 1 now enjoy better health
than I ever did before, having increased twenty-live pounds
in seven weeks. Your Forest Wine and Pills are highly
valued in this vicinity, and 1 owe my recovery entirely to
their virtues. Yours, respectfully,
AFFECTIONS OF THE KIDNEYS.
Mr. T. J. Gillies, a highly respectable M era hunt of No.
308 Broadway, New York, cured of a severe affection of
the Kidneys by the Forest Wine and Pills.
Dr. (I. W. HALS FY : New-York. March 12,18.73.
Dear Sir—ln the summer and fall of last year 1 had a
severe complaint of the Kidnevs, which rendered me quite
unfit for business. I procnrcit your Forest Wine and Pills
which cured me in a few weeks time, and I have since en
joyed tiettcr health than 1 had for many years previously.
From their efficacy in my *n case, and from v, bat 1 know
your medicines to have done for others, 1 am induced to
recommend theiu as the lust medicines with which i am
acquainted. Yours, respectfully,
T. J GILLIES.
There are thousands cured every year of this disease hy
the Forest Wine and Pills; Dyspepsia, Costivcucss anil
Indigestion. Hre kindred complaints, frequently existing
together, and the cure of one is generally the cure of all.
The Forest Wine and Pills above all remedies are pre-emi

For many years 1 have lieen nffiictcdwith this malady so
