The hog, if circumstances are favorable, is
inclined to lay up each a supply of fat during
autumn as would render it necessary for' him
'to undergo much exercise or exposure during
inclement weather. With plenty of lard oil
to keep his lamp burning, he would prefer do•
sing in a bed of leavetrin the forest, while the
ground is covered with snow, rather than to
grub daily for a living. He fattens most rap•
pidly in each a state of the atmosphere as is
most congenial to his comfort—neither too hot
nor too cold ; hence the months of September
and October are best for making pork. The
more agreeable the weather the less in the
amount of food is required to supply the wants
Against fattening bogs so early in the Ben
son it may be objected that . Indian corn, the
crop chiefly depended on for the purpose, is not
matured: Taking everything into considera
tion, it may be better to begin to feed corn be
fore it is ripe—or even at the stage of consid
erable greenness. After the plant has blos
somed it possesses a considerable degree of
sweetness—hogs will chew it, swallow the
juice, and leave nothing but the dry fibrous
matter, which they eject from their months
when no more sweetness can 'be extracted.—
They thrive on this fodder, and will continue to
eat till the nutriment is concentrated in the
ear, and then will eat the cobs and grain to
gether, till the cobb getS hard and dry. Fur
_mers who have practiced this mode of feeding
consider it more advantageous than to leave
the whole crop to ripen, unless they have a
supply of old eorn to feed with. Even in the
latter case„ }t is questionable whether. hogs
will not do better on corn somewhat green
than they would on hard corn, unground.
True, it is not necessary that corn should be
fed ringronnd, but much is fed iu this condition
no doubt at a loss.
In many parts of , the country swine are fed
considerably on articles which are not readily
marietable—as imperfect fruits, vegetables,
Ste. Where such articles are used, cooking
them is .generally economical, A mixture of
squashes '(either summer or winter squashes, )
pumpkins—the nearer ripe the better—pota
toes, beets and apples, boiled or steanied, and
a fourth or an eighth of their bulk of meal stir
red in while the mass is hot, forms a dish on
which hogs will fatten fast. If .kimmed milk
or whey can be had, the cooked food may be
put with it into a suitable tub or vat, and a
Might fermentation allowed to take place be
fore the whole is fed out. The animals will
eat it with avidity, and, probably, derive more
benefit from it thin if it had not been ferment
ed, Articles which are of a perishable nature
should be used first in fattening swine, in or- ,
der to prevent waste and turn all the products
of the farm to the best account.
Another quite important advantage of early
feeding is the less trouble in regard to cooking
the food and keeping it in proper condition to
feed out. The cooking may be done out of
doors, if convenience•of feeding would be pro
moted by it, and there is no expense or trou
ble to guard the food against, freezing.—Bos
EMS FOR TRE - SEASON.-1. YOU may have
hay-stacks, perhaps, standing in your meadows.
See that they are well fenced, so that the hay
is not eaten up before the proper time. The
best way, where you can, is to have your buy
in large or small hay barns, and build no bay
stacks at all.
2. You are, perhaps, threshing your wheat
or other grain ; save dry under cover all the
straw you can. If von have not some tinder
roof; build, if you dun, a good stack of it which
will shed rain. The uses of straw are impor
tant. But if well stacked, and kept dry and
sweet, it may be preserved a year or two, and
when hay is scarce, it may save the ato.•k from
starvation. The terrible want of 1854-1►355
ought to suffice for a lifetime to teach us the
value - of straw.
3. Look to your wheatfields; sown a few
weeks , since. Don't let any beav7 cattle tread
over it. Drain all wet places, if it is not done
already. Pasture with calves or lambs-any
pieces that may be growing too rank.
4. Attend to all fall plowing soon.. On
clay soils the ground should never, even in
the fall, he stirred except when dry. Plough
ing deep in the fall saves much work in the
5. See that the pipes for the pumps, sinks
and roofs are all in good condition. Arrange
them, if you can so that none of them will
freeze. It will help greatly for this end, if
the pipes are placed as nearly perpendicular as
may be. A pump frozen up, or with a pipe
burst, in mid-winter, is a great. annoyance.
TUC SIBRRIAN CRAB.—Every farmer should
cultivate this beautiful fruit. A few scions
inserted into the limbs of an old tree, or in
small branches young ones, will soon afford a
liberal supply cif fruit, which is an excellent
article for preserves and tarts, and brings a high
price in the market. The apples are but very
little superior in size to the ordinary red cher
ry ; the tree, is remarkably hard, resembles
the common apple-tree, and is propagated in
much the same way.
As an instance of the extreme hardiness of
the crab, it as asserted in one of the agricultu
ral papers of Massachusetts, that some limbs
were detached from a tree in the spring and
having lain exposed to the sun six week some,
scions were cut from them and set, and grew
well. A distinguished culturist and fruit grow
er, in some practical observatiOns relating to
the propagation of this fruit, says : " The
scions we have set, unusually blossomed the first
year ; and we have now ten Full-grown apples
of this kind presented to us that grew on a
scion the same season it was 'set. A few
years since we put scions of different kinds in
to the same tree, and the Siberian Crab bore
plentifully before the other kinds."—N. E,
To PHOTECT A SHINGLE Rope.--Says the ed
itor of the Albany aichrbocktr
" A wash composed of lime, and fine sand
or wood ashes, renders the roof fifty fold more
safe against taking fire from !ailing cinders or
otherwise, in cause of fire la the vicinity. It
pays the expense a hundred •fold, in its pre
serving influence against the effect of the
weather. ; the older and more weather beaten
the shingles, the more benefit derived.

midable distemper+ which load the hearses all veer the
land. Ilenee a reliable tinnily physic i+= of the first im
portance to the pubic health, and this Pill has teen per
fected with consuminate skill to meet that demand. An
extensive trial of its virtiles,by Physicians, Professors,
and Patients, has shown results surpassing anything
hrtherto known of any medicine. Cures have been ef
fected beyond belief, were they nut substantiated hy per
sons of such exalted positions end character as to forbid
the suspicion of untruth.
Among the eminent gentlemen who have testified in
favor of these Pills. we may mention :
I)oct. A. A. HAY ES, Analytical Chemist of Boston,
and State Assayer of Massachusetts, whose high Profes
sional character is endorsed by the—
Hon. EDWARD EVEREtT, Senator of the United
ROBERT C. WINTHROP, Ex-Speaker of the House o

S. EELAND &„ Co.; Proprietors .of the Metropolitan
Hotel, and others.
Did space permit, we could give many hundred certi
ficates from all, parts where the Pills have been used, but
evidence Oen More convincing than the experience of
eminent public men, is found in their effects upon trial.
These ('ills, the result of long investigation and study,
are offered to the public as the best and most complete
which the present state of medical science can afford.—
They are compounded not of the drugs themselves, but Of
the medicinal virtues only of Vegetable remedies extract
ed by Chemical process in a state of purity, and combin
ed together in such a manner as to'insure the best results.
This system of composition for medicines has been found
In Cherry Pectoral and Pills both. to produce a more ef
ficient remedy than had hitherto been obtained by any
process. • The reason is perfectly obvious. While by the
old mode of composition, every medicine is burdened *ith
more or less of acrimonious and injurious qualities, by
this each individual virtue only that is desired for the cu
rative effect is present. All the inert and obnoxious
qualities of each substance employed are left behind, the
curative virtues only being retained. Hence it is `Self
evident the effects should prove as they have proved,
more purely remedial, and the Pills a more powerful an
tidote to disease than any other medicine known to the
As it is frequently expedient that many medicines
should be takeu tmder the counsel of an attending Physi
cian, and as he could not properly judge of a remedy
without knowing its composition, I have suppled the ac
curate Ponnulw by which both my Pectoral and Pills are
made, to the whole body of Practitioners in the United
States ono British American Provinces. If however there
should be any one who has not received them, they will
be forwarded by mail to his request.
Mall the Patent Medicines that are offered, how few
would be taken it their composition was known ! Their
life consists in their mystery. I have no mysteries.
The composition of my preparations Is laid open to all
men, and all who are competent to Judge on the subject
freely acknowledge their convictions of their intrinsic
merits. The Cherry Pectoral was pronounced by scienti
fic men to be a wonderful medicine before its effects were,
known. Many eminent Physicians have declared the
same thing of my Pills, and even more confidently, and
are willing to certify that their anticipations were more
*bate realized by their' effects upon trial.
