Manures—Their Increase and Preser
However much may have been said on this
subject, it does not seem to have had the
desired effect, when we see so many of those
who are considered as oar best farmers neg
lecting to take any steps toward promoting
this end ; who, instead of devising means for
increasfng itsa mount, even suffer a large part
of that already obtained to be wasted. Now,
I believe that most of those who permit this
are entirely ignorant of the great injury tLey
are doing themselves, and there may be a few
who, though they have had their attention
called to it, yet fail to adopt any means to
remedy so great an evil.
I will endeavor to point out a few of the
most prominent sources of waste,aud the means
by w liieh they may be obviated.
To begin with the most important of all the
mauures, which is that obtained from our
stables and cow houses, and which is usually
thrown out into the barn yards to remain there
without any protection from the weather until,
after it has been soaked by rain after raiu, it
is carried out into the fields to restore the
waste occasioned by the removal of preceding
Now, if this waste, after soaking through
the manure and extracting from it a large
amount of its usefulness, was carefully saved
by being caught iu tanks, the loss would uol
be as much felt ; but even this is not done,and
as barns are generally built on the side of a
hill when possible, the water which falls into
their yard runs off almost immediately ; and
when not so situated, drains are usually out
from them to permit it to escape, and thus a
quantity of the most fertile pari of the manure
Now, this loss could easily be prevented,and
with slight expense, by the erection of a shed
under which the manure could be stowed, or,
what would be better still, if a covered pit
could be prepared in which it might be de
posited, and any expense incurred iu this way
would soon be repaid.
Ammouia is also constantly escaping from
the manure in the form of gas, aud as it is a
substance which contains a largo amount ot
nitrogen, which is especially beneficial tocrops,
it would be well if ii were a Isosaved. Now.tbis
can be accomplished by the application of sev
eral substances to the manure, among the
cheapest aud best of which is the sulphate of
lime has a greater affinity for the ammonia
than it lias lor the lime,and it therefore leaves
the lime aud attaches ilaeif to the ammouia,
which is a fixed salt.
Ilence the frequent application to the ma
nure, particularly that just carried from the
stable, of a little of the plaster would greatly
tend to prevent the escape of this gas.
There is yet another point to which I would
call attentiou, and that is the way by which
we can increase our stock of manure ; aud
though they are many, L will only speak of
two of the most prominent: The first is by
means of the compost heap, aud the second by
the pig pen. If you w ill only give poor pigs
the material, the quantity of manure they will
make will be immense. Old straw and hay can
be given th<m with advantage, but still better
than these are dead leaves ; you may fill the
pen half full of them, and they will soon be
converted into the best of manure.— Cor. Ger

Use and Abuse of Implements.
VJ ere we to assert that American farmers,as
a general thing, are wasteful in many particu
lars, we should be taken to task on all sides,for
where shall we find a more prudent and eco
nomical class of men than they ? Well, we are
ready to admit their economical disposition ;
but this is by no means a contradiction of what
we have asserted in the previous sentence.—
There is such a thing as false economy—"pen
ny wise aud pound foolish" economy—"saving
at the bung hole and wasting at the spile "
economy ; and under this category we class the
policy which so almost universally prevails in
regard to the use aud abuse of agricultural im
One of the heaviest taxes to which the farm
er is subjected is the purchase and repairing of
agricultural implements; and that this tax is in
many cases double aud treble what it should be
is very evident. How can it be otherwise ?
TV ere implements to be had for the asking,
some farmers could uot manifest more indiffer
ence in regard to their use, and their care of
them when not in use. In very many eases,
when a field is plowed, harrowed and rolled,
the plow, the harrow and the roller find a rest
ing place in the first convenient fence-corner,
there to remain until next wauted, whether it
be the next day or the next year. The dam
aging effects of sun, wind and rain are never
once thought of. The fact that such exposure
injures both wood and iron work does uot alter
the case. Some farmers bring their implements
from the field, it is true, but only to subject
them to the same qut-door exposure in the vi
ciuity of the barn. It is uot very surprising
that such miserable management makes heavy
demauds upon the pocket, or that the bill for
implements in such cases is double what it
There arc a few simple rules in regard to the
care of implements, which in most cases can
be readily and always properly observed. First:
Every farm should be provided with a tool or
implement honse of sufficient dimensions to
accommodate every tool or implement on the
premises. Second : It should be a fixed and
unalterable requirement, that whenever a tool
is doue with it should be put in its appropriate
place in the tool-house. Third : Uefore put
away.it should be carefully examined, to see
whether any parts are broken or damaged,and
jf so, the very first leisure moment should be
appropriated to repairing it. Fourth: No tool
should be put into the house in a dirtv condi
tion. A very few minutes will be required to
clean off the dirt, which will prevent the rust
ing of the iron, as well as damage to the wood
Fifth : All the polished parts of an implement
as the shure, mould board and coulter of the
plow, and the blades of axes, mattocks, mow
ing machines, Ac , should be oiled, to prevent
rnsting. They will then be ready for use at
any moment. Sixth : Every wooden part of an
implement should be painted at least once a
year, aud such as are required for out-door use,
as plows, harrows, &c. f twice, llainv days can
be appropriated to this purpose. One dollar's
worth of crushes and paint, properly applied,
will save S2O worth of damages. Mineral
paint, such as Hunter's Irou Faint,answers ad
mirably, because it has more body than white
or red lead,and is far cheaper and more durable
It not only preserves the wood from decay,but
from cracking, aud cosequeutly easy break

A COMPOUND REMEDY, designed to fx- the most ef
fectual Attn altvr that can be made. It is a con
centrated extract of Para Sarsaparilla, so combined with
other substances ol still greater alterative power a- to
afford an effective antidote lor the dis, ases Sarsaparilla is
reputed to cure. It is believed that such a remedy is
wanted by those who suffer from Strumous complaints,
and that one which will accomplish their cure must prove
ot immense service to this large class ol our afflicted fel
low-citizens. How completely this eompouud will do it
lias been proven by experiment on many of the worst
caes to be found ot the following complaints :
SCROFI'I. A AM) ScKoFiT.ors COMIT.AINTS, EBCPTTONS
AND ERI TTIVE DISKASKS, LT.C HKS, PIMPI.ES, BLOTCH KS,

INUIOESTION, ERYSIPELAS, ROSE OR ST. ANTHONY'S FIRE,
and indeed the whole clasit of complaints arising troin
IMPCRJTY or THE BLOOD.
This compound will be fonml a great promoter of
health, when taken in the spring, to expel the foul hu
mors wnieh fester in the blood at that season of the year.
By the timely expulsion ol thorn many rankling disor
ders are nipped in the bud. Multitudes can, by the aid
of this remedy, spare themselves from the endurance ot
eruptions and ulcerous sores, 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 medicine. Cleanse out the vitiated blood
whenever you find its impuiities bursting through the
skin in pimples, eruptions, or sores ; cleanse it when you
find it is obstructed and sluggish in the veins ; cleanse it
whenever it is loul, aud your feelings will tell you when.
Even where no particular disorder is felt people enjoy
better health, and live longer, for cleansing the blood.
Keep the Mood healthy, and all is well ; hut with this
pabulum of life disordered, there can tie no lasting health.
Sooner or later something must go wrong, and the giea
machinery of lile is disordered or overthrown.
Sarsaparilla has, and deserves mu, li, the reputation of
accomplishing these ends. Rut the world has been egre
gious!}- deceived by preparations of it, partly because
the drug alone has not all the virtue that is claimed for
it. but more because many preparations, pretending to
he 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
bottles, pretending to give a quart of Extract of Sarsa
parilla lor one uollur. Most of these have been frauds
upon the sjck, lor they not only contain little, if any
Sarsaparilla, but often no curative properties whatever.
Hence, hitter and painful disappointment has lollowcd
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 com poll n't Ssrsaparilla, and in
tend to supply such a remedy as shall rescue the name
Iroin the load of obloquy whidh rests upon it. And we
think we have ground for believing it has virtues which
are irresistible by the ordinary run of the diseases it is
intended to cure. In order to secure their complete
eradication from the system, the remedy should be judi
ciously taken according to directions on the le'ttlc.
