How to Make a Good Barnyard.
Several things are essential to render a
barnyard a good one. It must be so con
structed that water from any source will
not accumulate in it. It must not be un
comfortably wet or disagreeably' muddy
for stock. The surface must also be firm,
so that coarse manure will not be pressed
down into the soft earth, and thus make
hard pitching. These are the main requis
ites. Now, the first thing is to provide
for carrying off the surplus water that will
be liable to find its way among the manure.
Cut a good ditch entirely around the yard,
not less than 30 inches deep, and fill it with
tiles if they can be obtained, or with plank.
Stones will be .just as good to drain tne soil
and carry oft'the water ; but the drains are
more liable to be filled up by rats. This
drain will keep the ground dry 011 each
side of it, and will not carry oft* the liquid
manure. Conduct all the water by eave
troughs from the roof of the barn and sheds
into this underdrain.
The next step is to grade the yard, either
by hauling earth away, leveling off the
knolls, or bj T drawing in compact earth to
fill up the depressions. The surface of the
yard should always descend gradually from
the barn and sheds. There ought also to
be buildings, or cheap sheds on every side
of the yard. Excavate at the lowest part
so that liquid from all parts of the yard
will descend to that place, and there sink a
sugar hogshead, and cover it with plank,
so that nothing can fall into it. Then, set
a cheap pump in this hogshead, pump up
the liquid, and send it in board or bark
troughs among the solid manure in any
part of the yard. This will be a perfect
security against its heating and becoming
The next job will be to pave the whole,
or a portion of it. Stones of various sizes
and forms may be used. Flat stones three
or four feet square are objectionable, for
heavy cattle are liable to slip on large
stones so as to injure themselves. Were
they to slip not more than two feet, there
would be little danger of barm. Some
parts may be paved with boulders of a cer
tain size, and then those of another size
may be used in another place. Large stones
and small ones may be placed side by side,
by excavating a little for the large ones,
so that the surfaces of each will be of equal
bight. Stretch a line across the yard and
lay the top of each row of stones even with
the line. In this way there will be little or
no difficulty in making the surface of the
pavement even. When laying the stones,
tiie workman needs a trowel to place sand,
or fine gravel beneath thm or small stones,
to raise them up to the line, and a rammer
made of a billet of hard wood wi'li an iron
ring like that of a beetle on the bottom of
it, tc drive those stones that are too high,
down even with the line.
After the paving is finished, spread sand,
gravel or finely-pulverized clay all over the
pavement and work it into the interstices.
This will make a harnyard that every good
farmer will he proud of. On many farms
there are loose stones enough lying in the
fields to pave several yards. W here stones
are sea ree, the surface may he covered with
grave' or clay, or compact earth, instead of
stones. Where timber is cheap, a yard can
he paved with wood, hy sawing off logs,
five or six inches long,with a drag saw,and
placing them on the end. This would make
a pavement that could not fail to please the
most incorrigible faultfinder or grumbler.
Hemlock, pine, oak of all kinds, and many
other kinds of wood sawed into paving
blocks and well tarred on the lower ends
with coal tar, would last many years, al
ways making a very smooth and agreeable
surface to work on, and not slippery for an
imals. It would also hold liquid manure
How to Increase the Manure Pile-
The soil unmanured, will often produce
good crops for a year or two, or more, and
then it demands rest,in order to recuperate,
and gain soluble, ash ingredients enough
for another series of crops. This period of'
rest it was early found might be much
shortened by frequently stirring the soil by
the plow and harrow ; and moreover, it be
came known that the addition of certain
substances to the soil, such as the dung of
animals, the ashes of trees and plants, etc.,
not only operated in the same way, but en
tirely did away with the necessity of fal
lowing. Thus, long in advance of the phil
osophy which we now recognize as account
ing fur these facts, farmers knew what
would restore lost fertility,and what course
of treatment would keep up their land.
Man, indeed, does nothing without some
kind of a reason, and so in old times the
fanners had a philosophy which answered
as well for them as ours docs for us, so
lung as it did not conflict with known facts.
Now-a-days we have so many facts, and
they are so well systematized, that our
philosophy must be very nearly right ir. the
main, though still there are many points
upon which the Doctors disagree.
Manures supply to the soil what the
plants require its food, and that which oth
er crops may have removed. They also
cause chemical action to take place, by
means of which plaut-food, in the soil but
not available to the plant, becomes soluble,
or otherwise available. Besides, they pro
duce other desirable effects, such as mak
ing the soil more friable, porous, absorbent
of moisture, and more tenacious, or less so,
etc. Good tillage without manure may
produce several of these effects, especially
in conjunction with the action of the air,
rains, sunshine, frosts, etc., and it always
greatly assists the action of manure.
In all civilized countries in which the
soil has been long enough under cultivation
to show a decline in fertility, manure is
valued for all the reasons just enumerated.
The questions of "Inquirer," of Barrysburg,
Pa., whose letter we quote, are to the point.
He saj T s:
1 am anxious to know in what way to
increase my manure heap. 1 have only 30
acres of laud and am working every foot
of it. Of straw, I have not even enough
to bed my stock with. I keep five horses,
two cows, and generally feed two oxen
through the winter. My manure heap is
nearly always smoking, being so hot, and
turns gray, or looks mouldy inside. How
shall 1 proceed to prevent it,and what shall
Ido for materials ? Spent tan-bark 1 can
get three miles off; sawdust none about
here ; I can get but a very small quantity
of leaves, and for these I have to pay very
high ; muck I have none on my land, and
have nothing, indeed, but gravelly soil.
Will some one please give me advice as to
what I am to do ?"
It is now autumn, and our friend will not
do well to collect much, if any, vegetable
matter which can contain weed seeds in
any considerable quantity. Still it is pro
bable that a good deal of such things as
potato tops, swamp grass, rushes, reeds,
bogs, etc., may be obtained. His soil is
gravelly ; were it not lor this, we woukl
recommend him to use good loamy, or even
sandy soil, for bedding for bis stock. Noth
ing is better to lied cattle, or horses upon,
than about a barrowful of soft loam, free
from stories arid sticks,covered with a very
slight spreading of straw or other litter.—
The litter may be renewed daily and raked
off, with the dung and the soil as often as
it becomes saturated with urine, or other
wise defiled or wasted—say once, a week
for cows, and twice for all male animals. —
This will not only increase the bulk of the
manure heap, and check the fire-fanging,
but it will greatly improve its quality,real
ly more than our philosophy with present
data can account for. If it is possible for
Inquirer to get such soil, we say by all
means use it ; if not, let him go out into
the highways and hedges, and trim oft the
sods, pare off the turf, clean out the road
side ditches, pools, etc., and cart it all in to
swell the manure heap. The best way to
use it is, having it dry, to mingle it daily
with the manure in the stall ; if this can
not be done, then make the mixture when
the stables are cleaned out, using uniform
quantities daily in proportion to the amount
of manure made. As for the heap, mouldy,
heated, and fire-fanged, as it is described,
the only thiug to do with that is to work it
all over, repiling it with uniform square
sides and a flat top. It should be support
ed on rails, or any other contrivance for
good drainage, so that water may be pump
ed over it and run though into a sunk hogs
head, or tank of some kind. When piling
up such a heap, mix in soil, muck, straw,
or something of the kind,and tread it down
hard on the edges, that they may not dry
so much as otherwise.— American Agricul
How to make Good Cider-
Good, sound, and ripe apples, washed
clean, are the first and indispensable req
uisite. Specked and wormy apples, and
those dropped from the trees before they
are half ripe, and have become tough and
insipid, or bitter, cau never make good ci
der. Indeed, a few apples of this descrip
tion in a bnshel of good ones, will materi
ally injure the good flavor of all the cider.
Grind the apples to a fine pulp, without
crushing the seed, which will impart a bit
ter taste to tike cider. The pomace should
be kept in a large vat or tub, for at least
twenty-four hours before the juice is ex
pressed. If the weather is so cool that fer
mentation will not start, it will be better
to allow the pomace to remain four or five
days. If the pomace is pressed soon after
the apples are ground, the juice will often
be very insipid and light colored, and al
ways destitute of that excellent flavor and
rich color which good cider possesses, when
the pomace has lain a few days. In the
usual way of fermenting, the cider after
becoming perfect, soon becomes hard and
contains more or less vinegar. This can
be avoided by taking the same care with
cider as with wine. Procure a tin, glass,
or india rubber tube, and tit it closely in a
hole bored through a bung, which per
fectly fits the barrel. The bung being
placed in the bung hole, the other end •■!
the tube is placed below the surface ot wa
ter contained in a cup or other convenient
vessel. If all in tight, the gas liberated
in fermentation will pass through the tube,
and bubble up through the water, but no
air can enter the barrel as long as the end
of the tula- is covered by the water. W hen
bubbles cease to appear, the fermentation
is complete, and the cider may then be rack
ed off into clean barrels and bunged tight.
The fermentation should go on slowly in a
Olieese from a few Cows.
The communication from a " Farmers
Wife," upon making cheese from a lew
cows, published last .Tune, seems to have
met the wants of a number of our readers.
Mrs Ellen Whiteomb, of Delaware County,
lowa, writes a pleasant account of her suc
cess, and as her ingenuity in overcoming
some difficulties may be of use Jo others,
we give the following extract from her let
" I quite disagree with the' Western Boy,'
in saying the Agriculturist is not adapted
to the West. I think wherever people are,
whether East or West,they may learn some
thing. I have all the love for the West
that any one can boast, still I have learned
a great many things from the columns of
your paper, indeed T could not do without
it. As I was putting my cheese to press
this morning, I thought 1 would write and
tell you how much benefit your paper was
to me, and perhaps my experience might
help some one else ; and also to express
my thanks for the timely assistance in mak
ing my cheese, derived from it. This
spring I said 1 wanted to make cheese with
two cows, my neighbors, who thought they
must have sixteen or twenty, laughed, and
guessed I would make a large cheese with
two cows, one of them being farrow, and
we have a pet lamb that drinks four or five
quarts a day. I did not like to give up,
but never having seen a cheese made, and
not liking to ask them how, I was still un
decided, when the June Agriculturist came
with those plain and sensible directions.
Now, I said, I would have a cheese. My
husband said he would fix a press if I would
try to make one. I got a peck measure for
a hoop, and the rennet from a neighbor,but
then I had no linen cloth for a strainer ;
never mind, some old thin cloth would do
for all I should make. The next difficulty
was we had no cheese basket —well, the
I colander would do, and now I was ready.
The first cheese being too salt and rather
thin, I then thought, to put three curds into
one. I tried it, putting each curd into the
press, and pressing lightly,so that it would
not sour, then the third day I crumbled the
two first with last, and pressed tlicm alto
gether, and a very nice cheese was the re
sult, and you may well believe I was proud
of it. Now I have three, and they all ad
mit 1 can make cheese from two cows, for
which I thank the paper and the lady who
wrote for it."— American Agriculturist.
BEST METHOD FOR KEEPING BEEF. —Cut up
the meat in pieces as large as you desire.
Pack it in a barrel, or cask. Then make a
brine as follows : 1A lbs. salt to 1 gallon
water, 1 oz. saltpetre to 100 lbs. beef, 1 ta
blespoonful of ground pepper to 100 lbs. of
beef. Put in the salt and saltpetre and
heat it boiling hot, skim it, then add the
pepper. Pour it on the beef boiling hot
and cover closely. Your meat will be
good and fresh any time. The philosophy
is this—The hot brine closes the pores on
the surface, preventing decay and the meat
from getting too salt. Try it. If neces
sary scald the brine over in the spring, or
put on a new brine. Farmers can in this
way have fresh meat nearly all the time.
Tne meat should be taken as soon as it is
cold, before it has acquired any old taste
by exposure to the atmosphere.
ANOTHER GOOD WAY TO KEEP MEAT. —Cut
it in slices ready to broil or fry for the table.
Then putting down in a jar one laying of
meat, sprinkle with salt and pepper, and so
continue till the jar is filled, cover closely
and set in the coolest part of the cellar. It
will keep a long time, for I and my neigh
bors have tried it.— A Country Woman.
MOLASSES SPONGE CAKF.. —Mix 1 cup of
molasses, 1A of flour, 3 eggs, and a tea
spoonful of soda. Bake in a quick oven.
