meadows and Pastures.
Grass is a favorite of nature, sprinjriujr uj>
fresli and jjretMi without our care almost every
where, so that we have come often to nejrlcct
our meadows and pastures. We leave tliein
to take care of themselves, when, with a share
of the attention which we gite to other crops,
we niiirlit largely increase their value, and find
that labor as well repaid as any performed nit
on the fa nil. A larjre share of our landed
capital is required to produce the one item of
forage, and did we examine into the subject,
we should find that many an acre in pasture
or meadow jrives but a meagre return of profit,
or worse, perhnps, entails an annual loss upon
the owner. It will scarcely answer to keep
land worth from S4O to s*o per acre, in poor
pasture, or in anv condition but that which
calls for its best results, whatever may be the
crop to which it is devoted.
We do not give adequato attention to seed
ii>g our grass land Many an acre is now
mown or pastures, which never received a thim
blcfnll of seed from the hand of mail. It may
produce grass, but many other plants—weeds,
rather, occuny a portion of the space and pay
no rent therefor. Had the good seed been
sown there would have been few vacancies for
the bad. and valuable forage would have co
vered the whole surface. In seeding new land,
too little care is given to preparing for the
seed—oll new and old we sow too small a
quantity—saving a dollar in seed to lose ten
in hay or pasture. To uriotics we also give
too little heed—forgetting that the different
grasses are in their prime for only a short part
of the year, and that by a due mixture of va
rieties we may keep our pastures green from
early spring until the snow covers them from
A still greater loss results from the want
of drainage. Especially is this true of our
permanent meadows and pastures, which arc j
generally located on land unfitted for the plow
—swampy or hilly, full of springs and low pla
ces, just fitted for holding stagnant water.—
In low, swampy lands, where surface water
stands late in spring, the cultivated grasses
are destroyed, and flags ann rushes soon take
their place. If the grass " still lives " its va
lue is much deteriorated, and a sickly growth |
is given, poor as pasture and worthless as hay. I
The remedy lies in proper surface drainage, !
where the situation is unfavorable to a more
thorough course of procedure. A few days' j
work will often save largely in increase of j
grass, both in quality and quantity. On hil- j
ly, springy laud, a ditch to collect the water
at the fountain head, instead of allowing it j
to spread over a large space, will often prove j
of great benefit. Many cases might be cited, !
but every farmer can see, in a wet season, j
where drainage is of the first necessity, and
where it would work wonders in the character
and value of the crops produced.
Dry land in grass often suffers severely from
poverty of the soil—wgnt of manure—as well j
as from the shallow character of the previous
culture. A deep, rich soil will stand drouth ]
far better and longer than a hard and poor !
one. That culture which gives the best grain \
md root crops, best prepares the laud for the
growth of clover and the grasses Let such j
W.. i lie deeply cultivated and well maim ed •
a i with or after the first crop liberally stock-1
.1 o grass, and the product will be all that
v be desired. Upland pastures and mca- j
• ;u s may be improved by a top-dressing of'
tine manure or ashes,plaster, bone dust, guano, !
Ac. Plaster, especially, should be sown on
young clover—it will increase its growth and j
d it materially in enduring the first winter.
We must give this subject more thorough j
-it cut ion. There is no need of spreading our :
tun s and meadows so thin tbat they cover I
na't" our farms. Make them better and we '
. keep more stock or give more acres to j
other crops. The more stock the more ma
nure, the more manure the better grain, and
th" greater the product and profit of our farms.
Improvement here begins at the very founda
tion of good husbandry and leads on to pro
gress in the thorough culture of the whole
farm—to better crops, better stock, and a bet
ter return for our labor. Let us begin the
work at once. If we have any grass lands
covered with water late in spring, now in the i
time to drain them. Let us level down and
fill tip, dig out stumps and stones, and give
the ever ready grasses room to grow and flour
ish. He has been called a benefactor of the
race, who makes two blades of grass grow
where one grew before, let us deserve the name
au hundred fold.
Tnr, AOK OF HORSES.—A few days ago wc
met a gentleman from Alabama, who gave us
a piece of information in regard to ascertain
ing the age of a horse, after he or she has
passed the ninth year, which was new to us,
and will be, we are sure, to most of our rea
ders It is this : After the horse is nine years
old a wrinkle comes on the eye-lid, at the up
per corner of the lower lid, and every year
thereafter he has one well-defined wrinkle for
each year over nine. If, for instance, a horse
has three wrinkles, he is twelve ; if four, he
is thirteen. Add tlie number of wrinkles to
nine, and you will always get it. So says the
gentleman, and he is confident it will never
fail. As a good many people have horses over
nine it is easily tried. If true, the horse den
tist must give up his trade.— Southern Planter.
Cocon IV HORSES. —We once had a horse
that had caught a bad cold, and coughed so
severely that be could be heard half a mile.
All sorts of remedies were all rejected, although
some might have proved useful, and the fol
lowing course pursued. The horse was in the
first place very carefully and moderately used
so as to never produce perspiration. He was
carefully blanketed when the weather was cold
(it was about mid-antumu) or when he was in
the least degree heated : he was kept constant
ly on green and succulent food, clover, roots,
Ac., and was supplied with plenty of the best
water at all times. In a few weeks he was
perfectly well. It is an old saying that more
depends ou the nurse than on the physician,
which was verified in this instance.— Ger. Tel
" DRESSI NO "IN AMERICA.—A lady, during
the past season writing from Newport, Rhode
Island, says "We have to dress about nine
times a day here. First, we put a dress on to
dress ia ; then we are ready for a breakfast.
After that we dress for the beach, theu for the
bath, then for dinner, then for the drive, then
:or the ball, and theu for the bed. If this

THE ELECTRO CHEMICAL BATH,
DIRECT & TO-St-FRO ELECTRO MAGNETIC MACHINE.
TAMES HARRIS, ELECTRICIAN, of Towanda, respect
fully informs the public that he has lately- procured
from New York the celebrated Hlectro-Cheniii-.il Bath,
whirh ha* proven to be one of the most "important and
wonderful discoveries of the age. from its ability to extract
minerals from the human system.
Some eight years ago, a physician of Cincinnati disco
vered the process of extracting minerals from the body,
by galvanism : more recently. M. Verge*, of New York,
an electro-gilder, having suffered from the introduction of
poisonous minerals into his *y-tein in the prosecution of
his art, conceived the idea of removing them by the same
processes, lie succeeded in doing so, and quickly recovered.
11c then applied the same means to others similarly af
fected, with like results. His success exceeded his iun>t
sanguine expectations, for not only did these Baths remove
mineral poisons, but cured many diseases, some of which
were the result of minerals, and some were not.
More recent experiment-have fully confirmed the sin
gular power of this Bath to draw from the system all mi
nerals that may he lodged therein, to the great detriment
of health. Very often persons are afflicted by disea-e*
which are t>eyond the comprehension of the most skilful
physicians, am! which are the effect of poisonous mine
rals accumulating in the system for years, taken in the
shane of calomel, lead, Ac. Ac.
The following are some of the diseases cured by these
baths: Rheumatism, Paralysis, Palsy, Painter's Clinlic,
Chronic Ulcers, Glandular Swellings, S-Tofula, Cancer,
Xeuralia in all its forms, Salt Rheum aud Humors of all
He has also S.B.Smith'snewlvinvented DIRECT AND
TO-AND FRO EI.ECTRf > M AGNKTIC M ACHINK. which
is a great improvement on the Magnetic machine-, hereto
fore in use. With the aid of the Batli and Machine, we
ha\e.it command all the available medical efficiency of
Electricity. The medical power of the Machine is very
great, in introducing medicines into the system through
the pores of the skin—applying it directly to the parts af
fected, which give* an increase of medicinal power over
that of taking it into the stomach,rendering it particular
ly efficacious in all local diseases.
I am now prepared to apply these Bath*, aud also the
Machines, at my house in the south part of the borough i
of Towanda, or I will visit patients at a distance, who are
unable by reason of disease to come to this place, at mo
I :un also sole agent for Bradford county, for the above
Machines. JAMES HARRIS.
