Coru-Foider and Fodder Cutters.
Etmtoks : —T!ie vnltie of eortifmlder ;
is t-i-curiing more ami nurc ii|nne<iafcrl by
Tl.i- j racticai fanner, in prtyoition s Wu asctr
ti ins the nutritive properties contained in if. ;
That it trees contain many valuable properties :
:is. food for -.took, is exceedingly apparent and ;
is fnliy corroborated 1y the experience of fl.ose j
tv;.o fjavc txp'.'riiueii.led largely with the view j
of the correct estimate of its worth, j
There can "ue no doubt that at no distant day, ;
corn-fodder wiil become of so great importance
ns a product of the farm that it will hejjatfier- j
ed with equal cure with the- hay rop. Indued
it appears to me tliat tiie advantage of feeding ;
corn folder to stock, particularly, to hor-es, is '•
bo apparent that it is destined to claim a sn
periority over all other winter provender.
The inconvenience of feeding corn-fodder, j
however, has contributed greatly fo retard the
progress of its utility, and has constituted one
of the drawbacks to the introduction into t'n;
hor*e or cattle stable. The euntomary practice
heretofore among those engaged in the rural (
pursuits,was to haul from the field at different j
times the quantities desired, which was thrown j
into the barn yard for the cattle to pick up at \
uut',l their appetite was satisfied, while the re
maiuer was suffered to be trampled underfoot '
and be converbd into something under the!
cognomen of cornstalk manure, llencc that :
which remained in the field until the latter
part of the season become to thoroughly drench
ed by raia and melting snow as to be scarcely
recognized by its original name. Happily
this old fashioned and improvident method of
treating com fodder is gradualy being snpersed
e i by the modern idea.- of agricultural improve
ment inculcated by the progressive farmer.
And although there are many who yet doubt
the value of corn-fodder to be so great as
others suppose, nevertheless they are eonstrain
e} to adopt the innovations of tln ir snore
knowing neighbors, who house their fodder or
rick it securely from the weather, through a
desire of emulation, thereby contributing inad
vertantly to the thrifty condition of their own
But beyond the importance of curing eorn
fvddcr properly, and protecting it from the
weather, there is another consideration of cqw I
moment, and that is, the most economical and
proper method of feeding it. There rau be
no doubt that by passing it through a well coti
htvueied fodder cutler. many advantages may
be derived that would not be apparent when
feeding it in an unprepared state. Indeed,
thojvesuit of my experiment has fully corroborat
ed this statement, convincing the most skepti
cal of this utiltv of fodder cutters. Much of
the best portions is wasted by t'ae cattle when
it is uncut, while that which contains but
little nutritious matter is entirely rejected.—
There are many cutters however, that do not
execute the work properly; consequently,
much dissatisfaction is thus created among
many in regard to their utility. By using one
of " Cummings Patent Fodder Cutters," all
this difficulty is obviated, while the perfect
manner in which it cuts the fodder, in a great
.measure assimilates it .to the taste of the cattle,
so that the otherwise unpalatable parts is de
voured wTtti a good appetite.
The above cutter is easily operated, by
hand or horse power, as may be required and
is capable of cutting any quantity of corn
foddcr in a given time, in proportion to the
power employed. It is simply but durably
constructed, add hence the liability to get out.
of repair is exceedingly limited. But little care
or attention is required to operate with it,
consquently the most careless farm hand may
be suffered to use it with impuuity. I have
used one for a length of time, and can be re
commend it as being peculiarly adopted to the
wants of the practical farmer. In short, a!!
those who are engaged in the rural pursuits
should possess one of these invaluable fodder
cutters, in order that the economy of the win
ter provender and the thrifty condition of the
rtqck may add largely, to the profits of the
farmer, ua well as contribute a satisfaction
much beyond the pocket to afford.

TP.EK LABELS. —There are several methods
of preparing labels or fruit and ornamental trees
in order to distinguish the varieties at maturity.
It always appeared to me that labeling trees
after they were transplanted, involved a great
deal of aseb'ss trouble, besides often endanger
ing their growth by the pressure of the wires
by which they are fastened to the trees. I
have adopted the practice of making a little
phi:i or map of my grounds, indicating by fig
i. es the position of each tree, shrub and plant
Hereafter, if any of their multitudinous names
are forgotten, I Itavo only to refer to my map.
which I have roughly drawn upon the blank
'caves of my Thomas's Fru'tl Guitarist, and
I can distinguish them at a glance. Hence, I
hardly see the cui bouo of preparing zinc or
other labels, written with iudestmctsibia ink
or 'paints. In the way I have indicated a su
rer and never-failing record may i>o preserved
of any and every kii d of shrubs, trees and
plants. C. A. Little Valley, N. Y.— Ccun

ORCHARD. —Nothing is more detrimental to
a young orchard than to sow in small grain C
any kind, particularly oats. The best crop to
ti. grown in an orchard is potatoes? or. for a ro
tation, corn, buckwheat or vines. When the
/gharri is eight or ten years old sow- vlbver,
•ohd mh>lr rtroml the tr< ee. The most of our
frais tiees lean Northeast. When. the trees
are small and newly set, guard against this by
setting stak"- and fastening the trees, leaning
?V- n to the Southwest ; a rope of oat straw
is good to tic witfi. — Braerii Faamer, />V 12.
