Farm Implements and Machinery.
Within the past thirty years there has
been a great improvement in the construc
tion of farm implements and machinery.—
New machines have been invented,all farm
implements greatly improved, and there is
now no excuse for farmers to be without a
good set of tools aud all necessary machin
ery with which to conduct their business.
But farmers, as a class, are very slow to
avail themselves of the aid afforded by ma
chinery, aud here may be found one reason
for their want of success. The manufactur
er, who should have all his work performed
by hand, would at once fall far behind one
who used improved machinery—he could
not compete with him even for a single
month. In a less degree, the same is true
of the farmer. It is only the man who seiz
es upon all the aids afforded by machinery,
aud placed within his reach, that can stand
high and find the greatest amount of pleas
ure and profit in his department of labor.
Machinery costs something to be sure, but
its use enables the farmer to perform his
work easier and better, and cither saves
the employment of much hired help, or ena
bles him to conduct a much larger business.
But it is not only important to have ma
chinery, but also to get the best in the mar
ket. There is so many different patterns of
all kinds of machines, that it is often diffi
cult to tell which will give the best satis
faction. It will pay to inquire of farmers
who have used machines, how they like
them, and also to examine their work. On
no account, buy what you know, or have
good reason to believe, is a second rate
machine,eveu though you can buy it cheap.
Get those machines, and only those which
are likely not only to do the work well, but
also to prove durable.
If you need any machines this season,we
should advise you not to wait till after the
great trials which are expected to take
place but buy as soon as you find a pat
tern that suits you, aud that has a good
reputation. If you do this you will be sure
of having your machines when you want to
use them, while if you wait to find out
which is the successful competitors, there
will be such a demand for them you may
fail to obtain one. Next in importance of
obtaining good implements comes the prop
er care of them. We know farmers who
let their plows, wagons, horse-rakes and
mowing machines stand out doors all win
ter. This not only looks slovenly, but is
decidedly unprofitable. A wagon or ma
chine is not injured as much by decent use
in three years as by standing out in the
storms of one winter. When not in use,all
farming tools ought to be kept under cover.
They should be repaired as soon as they
get out of order ; a little attention at the
l ight time is cheaper and pleasanter than a
break down when you are in a hurry. Mow
ing machines, wagons and carts,when used
ought to be often oiled, and always kept
from the rain. And now, if you have, or
buy good tools, and take good care of them,
you will be in a condition to make your la
bor easy, pleasant and profitable.
Maxim for Fanners.
An old Illinois farmer gives the following
maxims for farmers to practice -.
When you wake up do not roll over, but
roll out. It will give you time to ditch all
your sloughs, break them up, harrow them,
and sow them with timothy and red clover.
One bushel of clover to two bushels timothy
Make your fence high, tight and strong,
so that it will keep cattle and pigs out. If
you have brush, make your lots secure,and
keep your hogs from the cattle, for if the
corn is clean they will eat it better than if
it is not.
Be sure to get your hands to bed by sev
en o'clock, they will rise early by the force
Fay a hand, if he is a poor hand, all you
promise him ;ifhe is a good hand,pay him
a little more ; it will encourage him to do
Always feed your hands as well as you
do yourself, for the laboring men are the
bone and sinew of the world, aud ought to
be well treated.
I am satisfied that gettiug up early, in
dustry, and regular habits are the best
medicines prescribed for health.
V\ hen it comes rainy, bad weather, so
that you eanuot work out of doors, cut and
split your wood.
Make your tracks when it rains hard,
cleaning your stables, or fixing something
which you would have to stop the plow for
aud fix in good weather.
Make your tracks, fixing your fences or
gate that is off its hinges, or weather-boar
ding your barn where the wind has blown
off the siding or patching the roof of your
house or barn.
Study your interests closely, and don't
spend money and time in electing presi
dents, senators and other small officers, and
don't talk of hard times when spending
your time in towu whittling on store-box
Take your time aud make your calcula
tions ; don't do things in a hurry, but do
them at the right time, and keep your mind
as well as your body employed.
My Experience with Manure.
One of your contributors inquires wheth
er manure spread on in the fall should be
plowed in or left exposed to the rain and
sun for six months. I say plow it in,by all
means, and I speak from experience. I will
state a few particulars.
1 had a piece of land well manured in the
fall. I plowed three-fourths of it then, aud
the remainder in the spring. I sowed both
pieces with grain. That plowed in the
spring did not produce more than half the
quantity to the acre that the other did ;
neither was the grass so good until plowed
Twenty-one years ago I took a piece of
land, spread the manure on the grass and
plowed it in. I then plowed another piece
the same depth, spread on the dressing and
harrowed it 1 then sowed them both with
oats and grass seed. The oats yielded
equally. The grass was better the first
year where it was spread on the surface,
but held out better when it was plowed
in, and when plowe 1 again was very much
better. I have managed other land in the
same manner,and in all cases have received
a more bountiful crop, where the dressing
was plowed in,than where it was left on the
Six years ago 1 took a piece of clayey
land, spread manure on the grass, then
plowed it six inches deep. On another
piece close by 1 spread manure as before,
and harrowed it in. I then sowed with bar
lew and grass seed. The barley yielded
about equally, but the grass was better the
first year, where the dressing was only
harrowed in. The second year it was much
better where it was plowed in,and has con
tinued good ever since. The other, last
year, (the fifth year,) began to run out,and
was covered with wiregrass ; while in the
other case the grans wan as well seeded as
it was the first yi-M Jhe contrast between
them is so great,as to be clearly perceptible
from toe road, a distance of sixty rods

How to Hoe Corn.
When I was a boy, and first went into
the field to hoe corn, I was quite puzzled
to know what my father meant when he di
rected us to be sure and "hoe where the
corn wasn't." Bnt after following him a
few days aud noticing the pains he took to
have all the ground well stirred as well as
the weeds cut up, and particularly when I
saw how careful he was not to disturb the
ground deeply very near the young plants,
I understood his meaning. In a long ac
quaintance with corn I have observed
enough to make me think he was tight.
The weeds must be cut up,root aud branch,
to have good corn, that's certaiu, and the
ground must be loose enougli to let the
heat go in, and the moisture to pass up
from below ; and to allow the spreading
roots to make their way easily through the
soil in search for good picking. But I've
seen a good many dash away with their
hoe close around the stalk, when every cut
there, if two inches below the surface, must
have broken a number of the growing roots.
It certainly cannot be of much use to feed
corn well, if you then go right to work and
cut off its mouths ; for the roots are mouths
to the plant. So I always cultivate lightly
where the roots have extended, which is
about the length that the stock is above the
ground, and when the corn is up breast
high, I wouldn't let a man go through my
field with a plow, if he'd pay wages for do
ing it and find himself. Ido not believe in
hilling corn—making the field like a crop
of young flag staffs planted on small pinna
cles. The crop has grown up into the air
where it is intended to stay, and it isn't
natural to partially bury it alive. People
do it to prop it up, so that the wind will
not level it. But if it be left alone it will
do its own propping by sending out extra
roots just above the surface, which go out
aud anchor it all around. I have seen a
field that was hilled laid flat by a storm,
while the next to it, that grew naturally,
stood up after the blow as a militia captain
on a training day. When it is hilled it will
try to send out a second growth of support
ing rots but neither the first nor the second
will then become strong enough to be of
I therefore try to leave my ground nearly
level, and thus also save the roots the trou
ble of diving down again to get below the
gullies which are sometimes left after the
first plowing.— Selected.
Raising and Training Oolts.
The younger the education of any animal
commences the easier will its training be,
and its habits more certainly fixed. A
horse learns the greater part of his good,or
evil habits, before he is three years old ;
for this reason, he should be well broke be
fore he arrives at that age. At the age of
one month, put on a leather, or web halter,
without the hitching strap,and let it remain
on,and you can have control over him when
you wish to handle him. To lead, or tie
him, have a leather strap with a buckle or
clasp on one end, to fasten ir.to the halter
ring. A rope should never be tied around
the neck. After becoming somewhat ac
customed to the halter, and to being led,
etc.,tie him beside Iris dam at feeding time ;
observing him to prevent him pulling back
at the halter. By kind, firm treatment,you
can accomplish more than by abuse of any
kind, to either dam or colt. At the end of
six or seven months the colt should be
weaned using care to keep him out of sight
aud hearing of the dam for several weeks.
Give him plenty of clean hay, and a few
bruised oats, or chopped carrots, also fresh
water daily ; increase his feed as he in
creases in size. Strong feed and good shel
ter will facilitate the forming of bone and
muscle, upon which his future usefulness
depends. A feed of cut straw and chopped
stuff several times a week, will tend to
keep his system cool and prevent the lam
pas ; should they appear, soft feed and an
occasional bran mesh should be given,until
the iampas disappear.
During winter nights,and on stormy days
at any season, the colt should have shelter.
A loose box or stable in which iie can lie
without tieing is best ; next, a good wide
stall in a stable well lighted, drained and
ventilated. For tying, the best plan is to
have a staple and ring attached to the man
ger ; pass the halter strap through the ring
aud tie to a small weight, heavy enough to
keep tho strap always tight ; the strap
should be long enough for the colt to lie
down with his head fiat on the floor. The
stall should be kept well littered at night,
and perfectly clean during the day. The
litter should be thrown out of the stable in
the morning to dry, before using at night.
A frequent sprinkle of the floor with some
good deodorizer will absorb and destroy
noxious gasses, and prevent their injurious
effects to the eyes and lungs. By frequent
ly putting on the harness, or saddle and
bridle, aud letting them remain for half an
hour, the colt becomes soon accustomed to
them. It is better to train him to use with
out blinders on the bridle, and with a slack
check rein. At the age of three, the colt
may be trained to light work for a few
hours a day, though it is better to wait a
few months longer. The subsequent train
ing depends upon the use the horse is in
tended for. HORSEMAN.
DRY EARTH AS A DEODERI/.ER. —Dry earth
of a loamy sort, is the most convenient and
attainable deodreizer which the farmer can
use in many places about his premises. The
hen house should he floored with this ma
terial, and if it is stirred up every day with
the hoe no disagreeable smell will eininate
from the hen-manure. In due time the
earth will be formed into a very rich ferti
lizer, especially valuable for the garden.
Loam may also be used with good results
at the outlet of the drain from the house
sink—down which so much of the soapsuds
flows—and also that, if you have one, from
the barn-yard, which often eairies away a
stream of liquid manure. In these positions
the loam retains all the manural iugrcdi
ents cast upon it, turns dark in color, and
becomes extremely rich. When thorough
ly saturated it should be removed,and fresh
put in its place. Dry loam is also excellent
to mix with night soil in the vault.
THE BITTER MAKER'S GOLPEN 11UI.ES. —The
great secret in butter making,it seems,con
consists in attending to the following
Ist. Securing rich, clean, healthy milk—
obtained on old pastures, free of weeds.
•id. Setting the milk in a moist,untainted
atmosphere, aud keeping it at an even tem
ature while the cream is rising.
3d. Proper management in churning.
4th. Washing out the buttermilk thor
oughly, and working so as not to injure the
• >th. Thorough and eveu incorporation of
the salt, ami packing in oaken tubs, tight
clean and well made.
Cleanliness in all the operations is of im
Judgment and experience in manipula
ting the cream and working the butter
must of course be used.— Williard.
NOT a few seek to accomodate truth to
tb.-ir views and feelings ; it is wiser to accomodate
our vi ws and feelings to truth.

rp\VENTY-FiVE YEARS EXPERIENCE
-L IX DENTISTRY.—I. S. SMITH, M. I)., would re
spectfully inform the ihhabitants ol Bradford County
that he is permanantly located in Waverly, N.Y., where
he has been in the practice ot his profession for the past
four years. He would say that from his long and suc
cessful practice of 25 years duration, he is familiar with
all the different styles of work done in any and all Den
tal establishments in city or country, and is better pre
pared than any other Dental operator in the vicinity to
do work the best adapted to the many and different
eases that present themselves oftentimes to the Dentist,
as he understands the art o! making his own artificial
| teeth, and has facilities for doing the same. To those
requiring under set-of teeth he would call attention to
his new kind of work which consists ol porcelain for
both plate and teeth, cud forming a continuona gum. It
is more durable, more natural in appearance, and much
! Her adapted to the gum than any other kind of work,
i'iiose in need of the same are invited to call and exam
| ine specimens. Teeth tilled to last for years and often
t mes for lite. Chlorofo, m. ether, and " N- Irons oxide"
administered with perfect safety, as over tour hundred
patients within the last four years can testify.
1 will be in Towanda from the 15th to 30th of every
month, at the office of W.K. TAYLOR, (formerly oc
; copied by Dr. O. H. Woodruff.) Having made arrange
] ments with Mr. Taylor, I am prepared to do all work in
the very best style, at his office.
