A E tket System
" Li. nom,* Towanda, f
June 2% 1870. f
Ma. Erma : In thii age of im
provement, when all the convenien ces
and:luxuries of society axe looked!at•
ter, it is surprising. to a visitor that
your beautiful town should not have
the adiantages of a "Town Market
and Market House."'
It would be , of great benefit both
to the town and country, if you had
regular maricet days ; as it is now,
it is accidental, never knowing where
to look, as the farmers have to hack=
ster everything through the streets,
instead of being stationary and .all
comingito ono point for the wants of
the many. When market houses are
first built, and regular days for all to
bring their marketing in established,
a prejudice is not uncommon among
the "old fogies " ; but they soon re
raze the benefits arising from a reg
ular market system. I remember
when market days and a market
house were firstintroduced into some
of the larger towns of our State, how
short-sighted and prejudiced setae of
the citizens were. To-day, they tire
among'the strongest advocates of the
market system. 'There is• an advan
tage to the farming community, not
to be appreciated until realized. The
best marketing will always command
paying prices,, while - those who bring
half-worked butter, &c., must take
what they can got. The same idea
pervades the whole . market system.
The same applies to the milk mar
ket. Farmers will • soil instead. of
I)asturo,.feed better, make more mon
ey, keep double the number of cows
on legs lafid, and enrich the farm by
so doing. Such has been the obser
vation and experience of the writer
of these crude and hasty thoughts.

-Pigs in Summer.
Summer is the time to make pork ;
maldne• it in winter is muCh like run
ning,- a b boat against wind: and Itidti ;
it requires too much food to keep up
the animal heat. If hogs have plen
ty of grass in summer, aria about half
the corn they will eat, they will fatten
rapidly ; and my belief is that . three
pounds of pork can be made of loss
grain in this way than •one pound
can be in cold weather with a hog is
a close pen. The grass is cooling and
loosening, and counteracts the fever-
ish properties of the corn. Hogs will
never melt in summer, however fat,
if they can have access to wer and
mud to lie iu. Mud is very bad •for.
hogs in cool or cold weather. -It ab
sorbs too much animal heat . Milk
is a very cooling drink, and Idinost
indispensable to rids° young pigs.
But very little corn and no corn meal
should be fed to young pigs before
they are four months old. The ef
feets of corn and raw corn meal on
young pigs are these :. The pigs at
first will be costive ; then they will
scour. They will begin to rub
against everything they can rub
against, that will rub their hair off.
Their skin will lia4e, a red and dry
appearance. A Oy, black scurf will
begin to form . on them ; and the more
of the corn' and meal they cat, the
poorer they will get. The best thing
that can be done for a pi g in this
condition is to give him a thorough
washing in warm water or sour milk;
sour milk is best. Coarse flour or
middlings from rye or wheat, when
_ii ade into a thin drinkable slop with
milk, is the best feed for young pigs,
except bread and milk. Bread is
good for very young pigs because it
is leavened. Food has to ferment
before it will digest, and if fed to a
young pig before fermented, it will
over-task the stomach and spoil him.
Lettuce is good for young pigs. It.
will stop the scours in them. The
middlings . should be put with the
milk at night, after the feeding has
been 'done, and allowed to be in the
milk through the night, never allow
ing the swill tub to get quite empty,
always leaving a little in the bottom
for yeast. The swill should be fed
often, and never more fed sp. a time
than will be eaten up at once. Slop
feed' will make larger hogs than dry
feed. After the pigs get to be three
or four, months old, their food can be
made. stronger ; but a pig will not
bear lunch strong food until it begins
to change from a pig into a hog,
which will be known by his, voice.
In the West, where hogs are raised
on a large scale, but one litter should
be raised from a sow in a year. The
fall litter will require too much care
for the farmer. One litter can be got
in April and another in September
or October following, from sow, but
the spring pigs will have to be wean
ed from four to six weeks old, and
fed on clear sour milk for two or three
weeks after weaning, and fed often.
New milk once a day will keep them
from scouring. Sour milk is better
than new milk. New milk will first
make the pig costive, thtli scour him.
It will curdle in his stomach, but
sour milk will not. The late fall pigs
should suck as long as they will, and
the sows should be fed on wain' slop
feed, and fed often. The slop can be
warmal by pouring hot water into
the swill tub. A breeding sow should
never be fed much dry corn. She
will get foundered onit arid spoiled--

To REATVENATE OLD GRAPE
The editor of the Practical Farmer
says : "Having on our premises,
planted by former owners, probably
twenty years, half a dozen old grape
vines • with large weather-beaten
trunks or stenni, which made annual-,
ly but little new wood and yielded
but very few poor grapes, tivo sea
sons ago we cut off the branches and
laid the main stems down in trenches,
covering with about 4 foot of earth.
Vigorous and healthy shoots sprang
up in great abundance—the weak
ones of which were 'broken off and
leading ones at proper distances
trained to the arbor. The new
growths are now clean, healthy and
strong—suffi.cient -to entirely cover
the large arbor the pr . cont season ;
we look fdr bushels of it from the
new bearing wood. We see olol'grape
vines, everywhere, doing no good and
which could be made- young and
thrifty by. this process."
Cruz Fan FOUNDER -it has bean
asserted that a pint of sunflower seed
mixed in the food of a horse and giv

that h has been foundered, will give
perfect cure. This seems incredible;
bat there can be no harm in giving
it a trial. All-the cures and remedies
