Calender of Operation for July 1859.
Farm.—Jul}' offers liule leisure to the far
mer who must lie " making hav while the Mr
shines." The hay and grain fields remind hioi
that he must push on his harvest, while the
buckwheat ami turnip patches are still to be
manured, plowed and sown 1 iiesc w ill afford
sufficient employment during fair weather, and
the work-shop, barn, stable-* and manure cellars
or sheds should be provided with woik for rainy
days. Care will be needful during this very
hot weather not to overheat the system,
and moderation and temperance are requisite
in eating and drinking. Farmers, and par
ticularly farmers boys are accustomed to bathe
frequently at this season. They should not go
Irotn the hay fields and plunjw into a cool
stream while enervated by hard work, and drip
ping with perspiration. Morning is the best
time for bathing.
Many of the directions of last month are
applicable to the first weeks ot July. Read
them again and attend to any of the operations
not yet completed.
Bark of Hemlock and Oak will " run " dnr
ing mcst of Jnly, and may be peeled for tnn
ners, at any leisure time during dull weather.;
Pile up the former peelings.
Buckwheat.—Sow, just before or after a
rain, if possible.
Buildings, Yards, <fcc.— Keep everything I
about them clean and neat Leave nothing j
to ferment and breed distempers. Chloride of
lime, or copperas dissolved in water will fix the
noxious gases escaping from the privy and sink
drain, or spout.
Butter and Cheese making are the heavy
labors of Indoor woik
Cabbages.—The late crop may still be plant
ed, among early potatoes, peas or other crops
ready to harvest.
Corn for soiling mar be drilled in or sown
broadcast. It will form a good succession
with the earlier plantings. Hoeing and weed
ing may still be ueedfut among the early plant
Fences shonld not be overlooked in the press
Haying is the important work of July, bnt
with a good mowing machine on smooth ground
a boy and team of horses can perform the
heaviest labor, and do it at the proper time,
neither too early nor too late, or when wet
with dews and rains. Use the hay caps when
necessary, and do not buru the hay up with a
Hoeing will be a secondary operation this
month, but the cultivator or horse-hoe should
be run through the corn in the morning while
Ihe dew is on the grass and grain.
Oats will require cuting. They should not ,
toe allowed to become over ripe.
Pa stares—See that the grass is sufficient j
fforltie graziug stock. A scant feed now will .
-boor, foe seen in a diminished supply of milk, ;
mnd 4lcrw growth of young stock.
■Potiiiy require the same treatment as last j
Totatoec Early crops will be ready for !
•harvoting ftind marketing during the month, ,
and the gsocni may now be appropriated to
iiate cabbages. ** turnips.
Eye—That-smn last Fall is now ready to
cut. Secure At faaai storms as soon as it will
Seed Wheat, rye, Mid other grain should be
allowed to fully ripen ta-fore cutting. If mix
ed, or containing forfl sjiff, go over and pick
outjthe foreign substunees as soou as cut by
the grain cradle or ntacinue.
Sheep ure apt to be warned, and killed even
by dogs, at this season. A few small bells I
placed upon the oeck* -flf several of the flock
will usually help protect Give salt each week, i
Sugar Caue.—Sow, in drills, or broadcast j
for eatitV? and bog feed, both green and cured
Keep the carls' crops fur manufacturing well i
Timber, for fencing or building of any kind
is much more durable when cut in July and
August, than in the Winter season. This is
particularly the case with the hard wood kinds
nlwunding in sap. The sap lias now parted
with its watery portions aud is forming au
outer layer of new wood.
Tools.—Keep the scythes and mowing ma
chine knives sharp, and the bearings well oiled.
In short have all tools, machines, and farm gear
in prime order. Repairs can be made during
Wheat.—Do not delay the cutting a single
day after it is sufficiently ripe. A storm may
beat it down and materially injure it. Cut,
dry, biud and " stook " it up as fast as possi
Young Stock.—Give them especial care at
this season. A calf or colt whose growth is
checked now, seldom does as well afterwards.
ORCHARD AND NURSERY. —Fruit growers are
now rejoicing over some of the earlier fruits
with a fair prospect of a good yield of later
kinds. This is the more welcome from having
had a short supply for several years past. The
most important work in the orchard for this
month is pruning.
Itndding also comes in for a large share of
the tree grower's time. Plum, cherry, anil pear
stocks will be ready for the operation by the
middle of July—even earlier in some localities.
Cherries.—The late varieties are now ready
for picking and marketing, drying or putting
up in cans and bottles. A good supply of the
bottled fruit will not come amiss next Winter.
Save pits of cherries for planting and pat them
in boxes of earth before they become dry.
Grafts.— Loosen any baudages which cut
into the stock ; replace wax or cement that has
fallen off, anu rub superfluous shoots from the
Hoe grounds often both to keep down weeds
and promote moisture. Let neither grass nor
weeds rob the newly planted trees of food or
Inarching, or grafting by approach may
now be doucon deciduous and evergreen trees.
Insects.—Destroy the lute brood* of cater
pillars ; hang up open bottles of sweetened
water, and kiudle bonfires for the apple worm
miller ; pick up wormy pluuis aud apples, and
teed out, or cook to destroy the insects ; dust
pear and cherry trees with lime, or syringe
with whaleoil soap aud water to destroy slugs.
Layer nursery stools kept for propagation.
The growth of the present seasou may now lie
laid down. Grape vines aud flowering shrubs
cau also be layered npw.
Manure, trees beariug heavy crops. Procure
a good supply of rauck during dry weather.for
use another season. Lime and ashes are also
very valuable for trees.
Pinching, or shortening in of the Summer
growth of small trees can uow be done to ad

1 THESE MACHINES sew from two spools,
. as purchased from the store, requiring no re wind
ing of thread ; they Hem, Fell, Gather, and Stich in a
superior style, finishing each seam hy their own opera
tion, without recourse to the hand needle, as is required
by other machines. They will do better and cheaper
sewing than a seamstress, even if she works for one cent
an hour, and are, unquestionably, the best Machines in
the market for family sewing, on account of their simpli
city, durability, ease of management, and adaption to all
varieties of family sewing—executing either heavy or fine
work with equal facility, and without special adjustment.
As evidence of the unquestioned superiority of their
Machines, the Grover 4 linker Sewing Machine Compa

Strickland, wife of Rev. Dr. Strickland, Editor of
,V. Y. Christian Advocate.
" After trying several good machines, 1 preferred
yours, on account of its simplicity, and the perfect ease
with which it is managed as well"as the strength and du
rability of the seam. After long experience, I feel com
petent to speak in this manner, and to confidently recom
mend it for every variety of family sewing."— Mrs.E. B.
Spooner, wife of the Editor of Brooklyn Star.
" I have used a Grover 4 Baker Machine for two years,
and I have found it adapted to all kinds'of family sewing,
from Cambric to Broadcloth. Garments have been worn
without the giving away of a stitch. The Machine is
easily kept in order, and easily used— Mrs. A. B.H hip
pie, wife of Rev. Geo. Whipple, New York.

the past two years, and the ladies request me to give
you their testimonials to its perfect sdaptness, as well us
labor-saving qualities in the performance of family and
household sewing.— Robert Boorman, New York.
" For several months we have used Grover & Baker's
Sewing Machine, and have come to the conclusion that
every lady who desires lier sewing beautifully and quickly
done, would be most fortunate in possessing one of these
reliable and indefatigable "iron needle women," whose
combined qualities of beauty, strength and simplicity,
are invaluable.— J. W. Morris, daughter of Gen. Geo.
P. Morris, Editor of the Home Journal.
Extract of a letter from Thos. R. Leavitt, an American
gentleman, now resident in Sydney, New South Wales,!
dated January 12. 18,58 .

there were over three thousand yards of sewing done with
one of Grover 4 Baker's Machines, and a single seam of
that has ontstood all the double seams sewed by sailors
with a needle and twine."

ful spring of woes unnumbered."— Prof. North.

operation in my different places, and, after four year's I
trial, have no fault to find.— J. H. Hammond, Senator of

Machines for some time, and I am satisfied it is one of
the be>t labor-saving-machines that has been invented. 1
take much pleasure in recommending it to the public."—
J. G. Harris, Governor of Tennessee.
