The importance of beaus as a farm crop, wi
assume as granted : we now wish simply to
notice one objection sometimes made to their
cultivation, viz : that they exhaust the soil
Science declares that they impoverish land
more than corn or grain crops. Here are just
the words : " A product of 30 bushels of beans
per acre will remove, say 490 pounds of nitro
gen or flesh-forming substance, while the same
quantity of wheat per acre will remove only
260 pounds ; of barley, 40 bushels will remove
280 pounds ; of oats the same quantity will
take away 275 pounds." And then the straw
of the wheat must carry off its proportion of
the same element.
Why, then, it may be asked, should farmers
cultivate this hurtful plant ? For the same
reason that they cultivate corn, or tobacco, or
hops, or any other very exhausting crop ; it
may make large draughts on the soil and re
quire heavy manuring to restore them, but then
it pays well. Nor is this all : When properly
cultivated, we seriously doubt whether it in
jures the land so much as has beeu supposed.
Look at its large leaves ; don't they show that
the plant is designed to draw much of its nour
ishment from the atmosphere ? In this res
pect, it is like clover,and nnlike wheat and oats
with small leaves. Aud then, many of those
leaves fall and decay upon the ground, thus
adding to its richness.
Look, too, at the long top-root of the bean.
It does not ramify all through the surface soil,
as do the corn roots : it pierces down into the
sub-soil, and then sends out its spongioles at
the bottom. It goes deeper iu proportion to
the thoroughness with which the soil is tilled.
And this is just what we affirmed : with deep
cultivation is it doubtful whether this crop is
so exhausting as is sometimes supposed.
SELV.CTI.VO CORV FOR SF.EP. —Those who have
neglected to select their seed corn from among
the earliest ears, on stalks bearing two or more
ears, have lost a tine opportunity for iinprov
ing the productiveness and the early ripening
of fntnre crops of this important cereal. But
they may still do better than have to go, as
many yet do, to the crib to obtaui their sup
ply of seed. They may save themselves also
from the disappointment, and the loss of time
and patience incident to planting seed which
was never fully ripened, or was put away be
fore being sufficiently dried, and which bad
lost its germinating power by freezing or be
coming mouldy in consequence of the remain
ing moisture. These evils may yet be avoid
ed by selecting the best ears at time of husk
ing, saving the husks upon the ears, or a por
tion of them, wherewith to braid several to
gether and to hang them upon poles, nails, or
something of the kind. Let the ears be plac
ed in a room, chamber, of loft where they will
be sure to dry thoroughly, both cob and corn,
and then they cannot aftewards be injured by
frost, as much seed corn has been during our
As corn generally was nearly or quite two i
weeks, or ten days at least, later than usual j
in ripening this year, and as consequently some '
of it was overtaken by frost while yet unripe, j
or cut up while somewhat green, in order to ;
be beforehand with the frost, there ought to I
be some caution exercised iu obtaining good ,
seed from such lots of corn. If any riper lot j
is easily accessible, it would be better to go
to a neighbor for seed, than to depend on any j
snch late and unripened corn. Those who \
are content to have their seed from such !
unripened or late-ripening corn, will probably ;
have to plant over again next spring.
A careful farmer would also reject all ears I
for seed, however large, which he might find •
on stalks which were mouldy, or very imper
fectly aired, in the middle of some large bun- 1
die or shock. Ears in such a situation may
have undergone some change.— Country Gen- j
Tr ACHING ANIMALS.—The farmer is the \
" schoolmaster" of his herd. They are in the.
habit of doing daily as be allows them to do.
They fly at his approach, or welcome him.—
They are gentle or not, as he teaches them to
be. They watch his foot, if he is accustomed
to kicking them. They kick back if he allows
Nothing adds to 'he market value of farm
stock more materially, wjfh so little cost, as the
habits which arc acquired in youth. The cow
—the horse, the ox and the dog are valued
much according to their habits or education
so is the man. The horse is frequently care
fully trained—so is the dog ; the ox and the
cow are as frequently " walloped into duty"
as any way.
I cannot see the propriety in offering pre
miums for well trained speed horses, and not
for plow or drought horses, or oxen and well
trained cows. In real importance to the farm
er the latter are far preferable.
I would wish to urge upon the farmer, and
the farmer's sons, the importance of careful,
thorough training of farm animals. Use them
tcjjderly and gently at all ages, aud you will
see them manifest pleasure, rather than fear
at your presance. In teaching ihem to work,
or to perform any duty, you need to be tho
rough, not harsh—kind, not cruel —aud your
forbearance will gain their labor, and your
kindness their love.— Correspondence of the
COLIC IS HORSES. —As there have been two
or three receipts published iD your journal for
the care of the above disease, I beg leave to
communicate one, hoping that it may prove
useful to as many as may have need to try it.
I have tried it frequently, aud have never
known it to fail, when all other remedies fail
ed to produce any effect.
There are two kinds of colic, one known as
spasmodic or cramp celic, the other is term
ed the gravel colic. The latter is some
what different in symptoms, and requires dif
ferent treatment. In the first place the horse
does not cramp, but lies more on his back,
bringing the region of the kidneys in contact
with the gronnd ; he bites his sides and stretch
es himself frequently. Any person, by a lit
tle observation, can easily distinguish between
the two a marked difference, so as not to mis
take one for the other.
For the cramp colic, take two ounces of
aloes, one ounce of gaml>oge, and thirty drops
of croton oil, divide into three doses with a
pint of warm water to each ; or if the animal
is hard to drench, make it into three pills by
using linseed oil and flour. Give the two first
doses an hour apart ; if this does not produce
the desired effect in two hours, thereafter give
the third dose iu pint of linseed oil, which will
le sufficient to remove the most obstinate case
