A Hint to our Farmers.
A' hint to oar farmer friends is never out
of place, and while they are basilj engaged on
their broad acres, in anticipation and prepara
tion for a harves-of the promisingly abundant
crops, we always feel a peculiar pleasure in :
being able to gleam from.our hoge pile of ex-;
obanges, anything that may interest the tar- j
nier. Be is now the main stay of the coun- j
try. Soldiers must fight and financiers will
cypher and arrange brilliant schemes of income
and expenditure, but without the farmer,with- ;
out the fat and abundance of the land,soldiers ;
mathematicians would soon become lean, lank |
and hungry. Debts must be paid from the j
products of the earth. Bonds and notes may !
secure such indebtedness, but they will not j
liquidate claims. Let us however, forget the
hint we now desire to offer to tire considera--,
tion of'our agricultural friends. What we i
wish to urge is, that the farmers cf Peunsyl i
vauia turn their attention to the breeding and
raising of superior stocks of horses. Hereto ;
fore, the breed of horses produced in this
state were considered infinitely more valuable
than those raised in any other locality in the
country. Draught and speed horses, raised' in
Pennsylvania, had a reputation in the maket
of our larger cities, which formerly ran the
prices up to almost fabnlous figures The hor
ses raised iu this state still possess this repu-:
tation, and what we now desire to impress up
on our farmers, is the policy of breeding as
many superor hoses as possible. The demand
a year ago, for such auimals, has almost left
the farming interest of the state without the
usual supply. This demand still continues,
aud will not cease for years to come, simply
because the chances are that the main oper
ation of our army will hereafter consist of a
service that must be performed by cavalry.
We will not be astonished if the cavalry force
is increased to a hundred thousand men in
less than a year, simply because the war on
our part will become one of coustaut pursuit
of a dying enemy, in which iufautry could ren
der no efficient service. To supply this force
will take the first hundred thousand head of
horses, and theu a constant contribution of
many thousand to keep the original number up
to its maximum staudard. Good horses will
alone be acceptable as good horses are alone
able to perform any service, however insignifi
cant, satisfactorily. Those who understand
also this fact* and those who make the breed
ing of horses a busiuess, need not be told that
to raise an | u'erior horse requires as much j
time, feeding and attention, as are necessary
to ia;se a superior horse. A blooded colt
occupies no more room on a farm than a colt
of an inferior breed. A mare that has been
attentively groomed, and carefully stabled cr
pastured is no more expense to an owner thau
;s one which may be neglected in the stable
and left lo rome in pastures alike dangerous
to the health of the animal and the interest
of the owner.
In many portions of Pennsylvania, the lo
cality is admirably adapted for the raising of
heavy draught, as well as speed horses. We
will content ourselves iu urging on our famers
the importance ol giving this business of breed
ing horses their most industrious atteutiou.—
There is money in this basiness ; sure and
large profits, which cannot be derived from
any other interest in their line, with a similar
small capital invested. Those who under
stand the business, will at once understand al
so and appreciate what we have so imperfect
ly attemped to urge ou their attention. Un
blemished horses are bound to bring the most
unprecedented prices, before many months,
while the laps of years will only increas the
demand as well as the prices. Remember
this farmers of Pennsylvania.— Harrisburg
CUTTING OFF THE Tors TO PREVENT POTATO
ROT.—MESSRS. L. TUCKER & SON —About a
year or so ago I gave yon the result of a coup
le of experiments I tried in raising potatoes. —
Now to back my former opinion, .1 will give
you the result of an experiment made in the
fall of sixty-one.
I had about a quarter of an acre of June
potatoes planted on yellow loam ground.—
They grew finely, and had far advanced to
maturity, when I discovered their tops began
to be diseased. I immediately took a scythe
and cut off the topuof all the rows excepting
two near the centre of the piece. One of the
latter, I left iu the state nature had formed it.
The other I pulled the tops by hand, leaving
th 9 tubes in the ground.
Sow for the result. At digging time in the
fall, I found the tubes in those rows that had
their tops cut off, and the row that h: d its
tops pulled off. of equal size, and as near as I
could judge had an equal Dumber of rotten
tubers in a row, and they were but few.—The
row that was left as nature had formed it,bad
had about four times as mauy rotten tubers
as either of the rows that had their top 9 cut
off, or the one that had its tops pulled off by
hand. Not only that, but the tubers that
were not injured were no larger than the tu
jers were in the former rows. Thus showing
conclosively that they ha i not grown any af
ter their tops became diseased, and that it
wculd have been better to- have cut their tops,
thereby checking the disease before it extend
ed to the tubers.
Some farmers recommend digging immedi
atcly after tbe tops begin to show signs of the
disease. Jiut 1 prefer cutting their tops and
Tearing the tubers in the ground till quite late
in the fall, for two reasons. First, they keep
their flavor better than they would if exposed
to the air. Second, there are sometimes tu
bers that have been inoculated with the dis
* ease which cannot he discovered if dug im
mediately, and if pnt in the celler or in heaps
in this way,will eaose the destruction of maoy
tubers that were free from disease at the time
of digging.— G. P. SERVISS, in Country Gen
WASHING MADE EASY.— Tbe M crazy folks'
in the asylum at Hartford, Ct., mix a gill of
alcohol with a gallon of soft soap,just as they
are going to rub it on the clothes, which they
then soak two or three hours,and theu merely
rines out in clear water, and all the dirt is
out as effectually as good seuse is out of a fel
low after drinking the same quantity ot the
w poison stuff." Just tell tbe women that
this is the easiest way to make washing easy,
and urge them to try it, and yoe will bereaf
ter have uo reason to run away on washing
In washing stairs and passagcs.alwayi use a
sponge instead of a cloth when wasting the
space between tba carpet and wall, and yon
will not soil the edges. Sponge is cheap, and
this information is cheap, hut it is valuable to
I 1 housi keepers.— The rioic.

" To be, or not to be— hat is the question !
Whether 'tis nobler in the mind to suffer
The slings and arrows of outrageous opposition,
Or by taking up arms against a sea of printing ink,
And opposing, end them."
rip HE proprietor of the Argus takes occasion in adver-
X tising bis Bindery to indulge in an uncalled for fling
about a " sort of a concern," which is hoping " to delude
the public." As I have opened a Bindery on my own ac
count, the inference is that if the public bring their
binding to me, they are in no danger of being defrauded.
For two years I have worked for Mr. PARSONS, and he
has taken great pains t satisfy the public I was the " best
Binder in America," as the columns of thevlrgurwil
testify. Has he been all that time " deluding the pub
lie?" If I have been engaged in a fraud, he has been th
principal. But I refer to my work during that time a
evidence that there has been no fraud practiced.
Having served a long apprenticeship at the Bindery
business, I have resumed business here on my own ac
; count,as I know of nothing which prevents me from fol
lowing a legitimate and bawfulcalling for my support—
-1 I shall endeavor by good work and attention to my busi
ness to give public satisfaction.
