Calendar of Operations for May, 1861.
Farm —The cultivator 1 will he at 110 loss for
steady employment during this month. The
sowing of Spring grains is to be completed, the
remaining stock of manure carted oat, the
ground prepared for hoed crops, and in most
sections the planting of corn finished—in cold
latitudes the huls of the latter ciop is often
safely deferred nnti! about June Ist. The for
wardness of the season will, of course, be
taken iuto account in getting in any crop. For
corn, especially, it is essential that the ground
be warm and dry enough to give a rapid start,
and this is measurably true of other crops—a
strong growth in the beginning is almost half
the battle. Stagnation in business and depres
sion in prices ihould not be permitted to dis
courage from sowing and planting a good
breadth o f grain. There must under any cir
cumstances be a demand sufficient to make
crops remunerative—all the more so if a large i
number of producers arc withdrawn from active :
industry in consequence of disturbances in the '
Beans w ill often succeed on moderately fer- j
tile soils, where corn would not pay. They are ■
always marketable, and n:c vaiuable for home
ose, and for feeding, especially to sheep. Pre
pare the ground as for corn, and plant white
bush varieties in drills 2 1 2 feet apart. Drop ,
the seed 3 to i inches apart.
Bees are very properly attracting increased!
attention. A moderate apiary.can be easily j
attended to with little expense and trouble,
end with great profit.
Broom Corn—Plant in hills three feet apart '
each way. or in drills four feet distant. Thin
to eight inches in Use row. at the first hoeing, j
Favorable reports have been received from
several who experimented with the dwarf var
iety last season. This may be drilled in rows
three freet apart.
Buildings—A pood coating of paint will j
sere its cost many times in the preservation of
r.H buildings. Apply it before hot weather '
comes on, if to be done this seascn. Remove
all litter from unused stalls and the bottom of
bays, before it becomes a harbor for rats and
mice, which soon take possession w hen the pre
mises are least undisturbed.
Cabbages—Plant out from hot-beds, in
heavily manured rneiiow ground, if not already
done for first crops
Calves—Mix oatmeal orshorts with skim
med milk for their feed as they craw older—
giving but little at first, and gradually increas j
ing the quantity. Allow them a little fine hay j
until the prass starts sufficiently to furnish n
cud. Castration cf the male is most safely pre
formed at about a month old.
Cor rote; may still be sown, last month was
tha betfer time.
Cattle—Continue to fodder nntil there is
abundance of gras. They will relish a iittl**
hny at night even after turned to pasture.—
Keep up the flow of milk by feeding cows
with wet bran, short, and roots if any remain
until the pastures are in full growth. Feed
grain to working cattic according to the se
verity of their labors. Potatoes or other roots
cnce cr twice a week will keep up their appetite.
Cellars—Dampness or decaying matter ii
the cellar will injure the furniture and impair
the healthfulncss of the rooms. above. Give
free ventilation.rciuove all offensive substances
and keep the sides and ceiling well whitewash
Clover—Sow, where it is wanted to enrich
the soil by plowing it under while in blossom.
Though quite late, it may yet catch if sown
on Winter grain.
Corn—Prepare the ground, and leave it un- j
til warm weather is established. The old rule j
is, to plant when oak leaves are as large as a
mouse's ear. If heavy greensward be broken
op this Spring, do not cross plow, and 1 e care
ful not to disturb the sods in harrowing and
marking out the ground. The fermenting
sods will afford warmth and nutriment to the
growing shoots. Examine seed carefully and
reject all injured by frost. It is always use
ful to soak the seed, or at least wet it,and dry
off with lirne or plaster. Wo prefer wetting
with a thin mixture of tar and water.
Dairying labors will increase this mouth
Provide abundant feed for the cows, a cool
aud neat room and convenient vessels for tlie ;
milk, and'conduct, every operation, for milking ;
to packing the 1 utter, with scrupulous clean
liness. Bi in no haste to buy a patent churn '
which is warranted to bring butter in four ,
minutes or less—we know of no apparatus that j
will produce a good article in that time.
Cranberries may be planted ar.y time this
month. The Fall is a belter season for gronus !
which are to be flooded. Secure fresh plants '
of the Bell variety, particularly for nplands.— j
If cuttings be used, let thcrn be five cr six j
inclic3 long, insert tiie middle in the soil, lear- j
ing the two ends projecting. Set thsm eight
teen inches apart.
Fences—Keep all in repair, particularly
boundary and road fences, and around pasture
lots where young cattle are confined. Ii they
once become unruly, an ordinary fence will not

munerative iii future,from recent improvements j
in preparing the fiber. This crop and Hemp I
should be got in.
Grain Fields—A top dressing of piaster will
often prove beneficial. Guano, lime, or wood !
ashes, sown liberally before the seed is cover !
cd, w ill benefit heavy soils. Keep all stoek j
from fields newly sown,and from Winter grain, i
Full out weeds as soon as they are plainly vis
ible among wheat, rye, or barley.
Grass —Sow, upon grain fields not
already seeded, aud on poor meadows. Use
plenty of sfed.
Hedge Rows thrive and spread by being let
alonf. Tear them out by the roots," not only j
along the fences, but by the roadsides to pre
vent further encroachment. If time can not
be taken for this, turn a flock of sheep upon
them to eat off the young sprouts as thev ap
pear, which will destroy rotne, and keep all in
Hoeing will be necessary in many sections i
before the close of the month. Use the horse
hoe or cultivator where particable. If hand
hoeing is required, use a light and sharp steel
hoe, with which tiie labor can be performed '
better and with less fatigue than with a pcor '
Ilorses—Keep them in good condition dur
ing Spring work,by generous feed and thorough ,
grooming. An experienced horseman recom- i
mends a frequent allowance of boiled potatoes (
with grain, which the horses will soon learn to (
relish. When uot in use they will soon fat- '
ten rapidly upon this feed.
Peas for feeding out may be sown. A low
growing variety put in with oats, will be par i
tially supported by the grain, and both will
yield a good crop in a favorable season.
Oats—Sow, if not airtadv done

et ntrnted extract of Para H.ir-apai ilia, so combined with
other substances ot Mill greater alterative power sis to
afford an effective antidote lor the diseases Sarsaparilla is
reputed to cure. It i* believed that such a remedy is
wanted by those who suffer from Strumous complaints,
and that ore which will accomplish their cure must prove
of immense.service to this large class ol our afflicted fel
low-citizens. How completely this compouud will do it
has been proven by experiment on n.any of the worst
cases to be found ol the following complaints :
SuKOFOI.A AND SciloFn.nl" s CoMPI-AIXTM, KkCTTIONS
AMI KkL'I'TIVK IIISKASKS, I'I.CRKS. PI.Mri.EH. ItI.OTCItES.

INDIGESTION. KIIVSIPELAS, HOSE OK ST. ANTHONY'S KIKE,
and indeed the whole class of complaints arising troru
IMPCKITY OF THE BLOOD.
This compound will he found a great promoter of
health, when taken in the spring, to expel the foul hu
mors wnirh fester in the blood at that season of the tear.
By the timely expulsion of them many rankling disoi
di rs are nipped in the bud. Multitudes can. by the aid
of this lemtdy. spare themselves from the endurance ol
eruptions and ulcerous Mures, through which the system
will strive to rid itself of corruptions, if not assisted to
do this through the natural channels of the body by an
alterative rneh cine. Cleanse out the vitiated Idood
whenever you find its impurities bursting through the
skin in pimples, eruptions,or sores ; cleanse it when joo
find it is obstructed and sluggi-h in the veins ; cleanse it
whenever it is foul, and your leelings will tell you when.
Even where no particular disorder is felt people enjoy
better health, and live longer, for cleansing the blood.
Keep the nlood healthy, and all is wellhut with this
pabulum of life disordt red, there can be no lasting health.
Sooner or later something must go wm:g, and the gita
j machinery ol life is disordered or overthrown.
Barsan.irilla has, and deserves much, the reputation of
accomplishing these ends. But the world has tieen egrc
gioiisly deceived by preparations of it, partly because
the drug alone has not all the virtue that is claimed for
it. hut more because many preparations, pretending to
he concentrated extracts of it. contain but little ol the
virtue of Sarsaparilla. or anything else.
Hnring late years the public have been misled by large
I bottles, pretending to g.ve a quirt of Extract ol Sars.i
-| parilla tor one dollar. M't of these have been frauds
j upon the sick, lor they not only contain little, if any
| Sarsaparilla. but often no curative properties whatever.
I Hence, bitter and painful disappointment has lollowed
I the use of the various extracts of Sarsaparilla which
j 11 ood the market, until the name it.-ejt is justly de
j spised.and has In-come synonymous with imposition anil
i cheat. Still we call this compuun:l SM -apunila. ami in
j tend to supply -itch a remedy as .-hall rescue the n unc
• from the load of obloquy whiilh rests upon it. And we
! think we have ground tor believing it lias virtues wliic 11
I are irresistible by the ordinary run of the diseases i: is
■ iutinibd to cure. In order to secure their complete
eradication In in the system, the remedy should lie jttdi
i cimisly taken aeeording to directions on the buttle.
