Thought - Profitable in Farming
JV-riiapu tliere is MU respect in which farmer
differ more from each other than mtlieamoui t
ofy/U the? briny to their work. Onejiuiii
!;iijoi ■> huril from January to iKetut >< r, y t
wunders to see that he accomplishes less than
h's ueiyhboi v li<> works iewer hours a-tluy
than he. He toil* on 1 tboriously in the s tine
old routine, without forethought, without -kill:
his neighbor seeks to do evervtitiiipf inn i.qreiit.
Iv. ,y• 11 1 a wise forecast of the best means o!
(loiiiy it. Suppose the first farmer wished to
remove a large boulder iroiu his wheat field
He bad pccii liis father get rid of such rocks :
bv c:iTlTny together all his hum's and i neighbor
or two, ami roliiug it by mere muscular fore- |
into a corner by the fence. Now, he never
bothers himself to inquire whether there is any
better met hoi than his father's ; so lie spends j
u whole d.iv in yetting a single boulder into a
corner, and thinks, after inuch straining and i
weariness, and many bruises, that he ha-: rcaiiy |
done at great deed. Hut the second farm' i
thiuka twice before touching his botiMer. lie
examines its shape, size, texture Can it be
sunk out of sight, and below the reach of plow
point .' Or cuu it be more easily rolled out
of the way by good, stout levers ; or w ill olast
iug do the work as quickly, and save him the j
pieces for future use? Having once settled j
tlie point, he goes to work with a will, and the
boulder is soon disposed of. I'liis as an ex
ample ; but the same principle applies to eve: y
operation. The thinking farmer lakes advant
age of opportunities and means of doing things,
which escape the notice of careless men. 111 >
thought shows itself in his house, barns, stables,
pig-sty, cow-yard, ditches, fences, h -Ids, every

Hearken, now, to the " improvement ' of
our little sermon ! Another season of out-door
labor bus closed ; the year, with its toils, sue
COFSOSS atid failures, cannot now be rceullud ;
it can be reviewed. And let us view it
Neighbor Jones, how do you account for your
ill-luck in that corn-field down in ihe corner
lot ? Is the ground cold, wet, and lull of grubs
and wire wornjs ? if so, or possibly so, think
about it before you repeal the same profitless
experiment. Read and think about the effects
of draining, its cost and the probable gain to
vour crops. Then, if yon determine on drain
ing (and wc really hope you will,) make your
self master of all its rh'tnils, such a- draining
with plunk, stones, ti.es, and the best ditch,
its depth, direction, its cutlet, Ac., And
so, wiieu the season op< ns, you will be prepar
ed logo to work intelligently and successfully.
And. farmer Smith, what gave you such a
rousing crop of potatoes, while ueighbor John
sou's was so small ? Perhaps you scattered a
good top-dressing of though* over the land be
fore you plowed andpluntcd. Farmers general
ly need to do more head work. This should be
applied to the management of the dairy and
orchard, sheep and young cattle, rotation of
crops, and, in sho. L, to all theoperatious of the
"During the leisure months of Winter, now
begun, form your plans for the coming year.—
Make uood use of the past. Review the year
now closing, and see what real improvements
you have made and where other things will
bear a little mending. This will make your ex
perienee of great advantage. Avoid, if pos
sible, former mistakes, and repeat the methods
which have proved successful.
I>raw np on paper a plan of your farm
After suitable deliberation, assign to each field
its respective crop, end determine on the way
the land shall be prepared for the crop. May
not the old orchard lie improved by re graft
ing some of the trees with new and superior
kinds of apples ? Perhaps it is time to com
mence the planting of a new orchard And
what a grand undertaking is that ? How it
looks into the future, and what a spirit of be
nevolence it awakens for those who shall come
after us ! To determine what sorts are. on the
whole, the best for a succession of Summer,
Autumn, and Winter apples is no .-.mail mat
ter, and requires no little study. These Win
ter months are just the time for that study.
Aud so, in reference to all the details of
farming. Give them a careful overhauling.—
Don't lie mere routine farmers, but have a
reason for everything, and do everything in the
best pos ible way. Put as much thought into
your farming as you have to spare, and surely
it will pay.
CnxrtKD Hands—These are very common
'"about these days " Cold weather chills the
surface of the .skin and prevents a free circula
tion of the blood, and consequent warmth,and
thus induces or aggravates the difficulty. One
of the primary causes of chapping or c racking
of the skin is the action of soap. The alkali in
this eats away the cuticle or outer skin, ami
thus destroys the natural covering. In cold
weather especially, the hands should always be
tliori uglily rinsed in clean water after willing
them with soap. It will be found highly bene
ficial to wash the skin in a weak solution of
mi gar aud water, after using soap, and then
rinse ia clean water. The acetic acid of the
vinegar neutralizes the alkali of the soap, and
prevents the further action upon the skin,
which will take place if the slightest amount
of soapy water be left on the bands when they
are dried with a towel. On washing days it
will be of special advantage to have a vessel
of water with a little vinegar added, to dip the
the hands into whenever they are takeu from
the washing water. Whenever we find it
necessary to wash with soap, we rinse the
hands in dilute vinegar, or a very weak solu
tion of any acid, such as a few drops of oil of
vitriol (seiphrie acid), muriatic (hydro-cliolric.
a id, or nitric acid (aqua fortic), in a quart of
water. Any of these acids will neutralize the
alkali of the soap. Since adopting this prac
lice no have never b en troubled i t the lea-t
w ;th chap|K-d, or even rough hands, though we
do not put oil gloves or mittens half a dozen
We would add further, that in washing the
hand* it is usually better to use a stiff brush
instead of soap, unless they chance to be cov
ered with oil or tar A brush is more con
venient, more effectual, neater, cheaper, and
better every wujr than soap.
