As the season for making hay is approach
ing, we will give a few words of caution in
edvt.ss. Don't try to dry jour Lay too much;
Hay may be dried till it is as worthless as
straw. As a good coffee-maker would say,
" Don't burn your coffee, Lot brown it so
we soy, don't dry yonr hay, but care it. Our
good old mothers who relied upon herb tea
instead of " potecarv medicine," gathered their
herbs when in blossom and cured them in the
shaed. This is the philosophy of making good
hay. Cut in the blossom, and cure in the
6hade. The sugar of the plant when it is in
bloom, is in-the stalk, ready to form the seeds
If the plant is cut earlier the sugar is not
there ; if later the sugar has become convert
ed to woody matter.
llay should be well wilted in the sun, lut
cured in the cock. Better to be a little too
green thau too dry. If, on putting it iuto the
barn, there is dauger of "beating on the crow,"
pat on some salt. Cattle will like it Done the
Ilcat, light, and dry winds, will soon take |
the starch and sugar which constitute the good
ness of hay, out of it ; and with the addition !
of a show er, render it almost worthless. Grass
cured with the least exposure to the drying
winds and searching [sunshine, is more nutri
tious thau if longer exposed,however good the
weather may be. If over cured, it contains
more wocdy fibre and less nutritive matter.
r The true art of hay making, then, consists
in cutting t he gra*s when the starch and sugar
are fully developed, aud before they are con
verted into seed and woody fibre; and curing :
it up to the point when it will answer to put
it into the barn without heating, and uo more.
H ILL!NO CORN — The Rural Register has . a
article from one of its correspondents on the
culture of corn, from which we make the fol
lowiDg extract :
One day while hoeing in our garden corn
field of a quarter cf an acre, we sat down a
hulfhour and studied diligently the character
cf the rootlets everywhere about us radiating
from the corn stalks, from one to three- inches
above the surface cf the ground. It occurred
to us that nature designed them for something
else than mere ornaments ; and that if the
requisite material for their full developement
were supplied, they might become roots and 1
add something to the vigor of the stalk. So,
in order to make our experiment a fair test,we
set to work with our hoe, and to each alter
nate hill we drew up the earth, covering the
shoots to an average depth of eight inches.—
After an interval of two weeks, we found up
on examination, that we had a set cf vigorous
tcp roots giving extra support to the stalk and
imparting an extraordinary degree of vigor to
its growth. Nearly every stalk thus " hilled
up," afforded an extra ear, grew one fifth
taller than those not hilled, and the grain ri
pened days earlier. Iler.ce we have ever since
argued that it is good economy to "hill up "
corn ; but we would remind the farmer that
it is a dangerous practice to run plow or cul
tivator so near the stalks as to disturb the re
gular roots. A very simple and efficient cross
bar cultivator can be arranged, so that with a
light dip on either side, the two outer shares
will throw sufficient earth to the stalks,with
out disturbing the root 3.
THE WHEAT HARVEST.—I have see mnch
in the Telegraph and other agricultural jour
nals as to the proper time for cutting wheat;
but as the views were given by those at a dis
tance, generally in other States, I would like
to have the opiuions and experience of those
in, say Eastern Pennsylvania. My own cus
tom for nearly ten years, has been to ait early •
that is to say,from three to six days before the
time crop is usuaily cut in this (Berks) county
—Generally from the 2dth June to Ist July.
I have fouud that, in neariy every case of mil- I
dew in former years of my crops, that it oc
curred, from experiments made on a small
scale, that early cut grain make 3 more and
better flour. Hence I have continued to pur
sue this practice of early catting as possessing
these important advantages. Neverthless I
would li'.ye to have the views of farmers gener
ally ia this State, and will thank them to
communicate them.— G. W. W. in, German
THE DEITII OF TREES.— There has recently
sprung up some controversy as to the proper
depth that trees should he transplanted, and
us is usual in controversies of this kind among
practical men, there is not the least hope of
their ever coming to a common opinion on the
question. And this is natural and perhaps as
it should be. Different kinds of trees fre
quently require different modes of culture, be
gining with tiie planting. For instance dwarf
pears should be planted deep, two or three
inches below the union of the quince with the
jrar, in all soils where dwarf pear ought to
be. A firm or spruce should be planted shal
low, and so, as a rule should standard pear as
well as apple trees. This exception should how
ever be made; in light, porous soils tliey may
be guaged deeper than in clay moulds. Thus
the heavier soils the shallower should the
trees be planted. Such is cur experience.—
SETTING orr PLANTS.— Most persons prefer
setting out plants at evening, and when the
ground is wet by rain. We prefer a dry soil,
so that it will not be packed by tramping.—
When the hole is made, have a pint or more
of water poured in. Before the water all
soaks away, the plant set in, and the hole fill
ed up with dry earth. Most of this is wet by
the water, so that the plant is surrounded with
rapi>ture, and yet the surface is left loose and
open, not packed or basked. We are certain
that the trouble required is abundantly re
paid, whether the number of plants be large
HEAVES.— The Farmer and Gardner gives
the following as a cure for the heaves in hors
es : —Take smart-weed, steep it iu boiling
water till the strength is all out; give one quart
every day, mixed with bran'or shorts,for eisrht
or ten day?. Give green cut up feed wet with
water, durning the operation and it will cure.
GARDENING FOR YOUNG LADIES.— Make up
your beds early in the morning ; soio buttons
on your husbands' shirts ; do not rake up any
grievances; protect the young and tender
branches of your family, plant a suiile of good
temper on your face ; aud carefully root out
all angry feelings, aud expect a good crop [of

" To be. or not to be— hat is the question !
Whether 'tis nobler in the mind to suffer
Tne slings and arrows (jf outrageous opposition,
Or by taking up arms against a sea of printing inJ:,
And opposing, end them."
THE proprietor of the Argus takes occasion in adver
tising his Bindery to indulge in an uncalled for fling
about a •• sort of a concern,' - which is hoping " to delude
j the public."' As I have opened a Bindery on my own ac
: count, the inference is that if the public bring their
I binding to rue, they are in uo danger of .being defrauded.
For two years I have worked f,,r Mr. PARSONS, and lie
has takeu great pains t ■ satisfy the public I was the " best
| Binder in America," as the columns of the Argus wil 1
1 testify. Has he beer, all that time " deluding the pub
lielf I have been engaged in a fraud, lie has been Hi
i principal. But I refer to ny work during that time a
evidence that there has been no fraud practiced.
Having served a long apprenticeship at the Bindery
business, 1 have resumed business here on my own ac
count,as 1 know of nothing which prevents me fiflm fol
lowing a legitimate aud bawful caiiing for my support

By the timely exptitsiou of them many rankling disor

will strive to rid itself of corruptions, if not assisted to
do this through the natural channels of the bodv by on

whenever it is foul, and your leelings will tell you when.
Even where 110 particular disorder is felt people enjoy
better health, and live longer, for cleansing the blood.
Keep the Llood healthy, and all is well ; but with this
pabulum of life disordered, there can be no lasting health.
Sooner or later something must go wing, arid thegiea
machinery of life is disordered or overthrown.
Sarsaparilla has. and deserves much, the reputation of
accomplishing these ends. Rut the world has been egre
giously 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
,be concentrated extracts of it, contain hut little of the
virtue of Sarsaparilla. or anything else.
During late years the public have been misled by large i
bottles pretending to give a quart of Extract of bursa- I
pariila lor one dollar. Most of these have been frauds |
upon the sick, for they not only contain little, if any
Sarsaparilla, but often no curative, properties whatever. I
Hence, bitter and paintul disappoint ment has follow ed
the use of the various extracts of Sarsaparilla which
flood the market, until the name itself is justly de
spised, and has become synonymous with imposition and
cheat. Still we call this compound S*i*apaiiila. and in
tend to supply such a remedy as shall rescue the name
from the load of obloquy wliidh rests upon it. And we
think we have ground lor believing it lias virtues which
are inesistihle by the culinary run of the diseases it i*
intended to cure. In order to secure their complete
eradication Irom the system, the remedy should be judi
ciously taken according to directions on the bottle.
