THE BDTIOATIONAL Enna:
Th 6 Emutive Cominittee of the Brad
ford County Agricultural Society have
decided to erect a budding far an educa-
tional display this fall. Premiums are
also offered for the best specimens of
penmanship, map-drawing,-display of ap•
paratus, and those passing the best exam:
ination •in the common branches. This
examination will probably liecondueted
t in the educational building, • and will be
open to students from' ill parts of the
= county. Superitltendent Ryan, E. E.
Quinlan and E. T. Bnrgau are the com
mittee appointed to 'conduct . this exami
uation.ilUfter the examination the papers
of the. various competitors will probably
The nianagers of the fair have certainly
'shown a commendaule ' interest in the
cause of education, and a generosity bard
ly expected by the committee, consenting
to erect 'a fine pew building expressly to
'further the; cause of education id our
county. Still a building will be of little
account unless it has an attraction within.
The managers of the fair hive certainly
done their part well, or will have done it
- when the building is erected. The com
mittee appointed propose todo their duty.
The question remains, will the schools,
,teachers and sehmars throughout the
county do theirs ? Had Vie announce
ment been made sooner, and -the prerni
u mug been offered a year ago, without doubt
schools from every township in:the county
(for we havelive teachers in every torn
ship) would have sent specimens of map
drawing, of improvement in penmanship,`of examination papers and apparatus, tube.
exhibited: As it is dependence this fall
must chiefly be placed upon the high and
select schools. Wherever other schools
have commenced effort should . 'be made to
do something. Mao every 'teacher and
,stmieht whether at present engaged in
rehool work or not, should contribute his
or her mite. The aggregate would
di4lay . ofWhich the friends of edudation
in old 13mdfota would be proud. • •
1 TEE ASSOCIATION'.
The Sheshequin meeting of the Brad.
fqrd County Teachers' Association is held
this week. ,The session premises to be
one.of rare interest and practical utility.
Teachers and friends of education are
"sure of, meeting with a cordial welcome
from the g6od people of Sheshequin. For
Fevera 1' sessions the people 'of Sheshequin
have invited the Association to meet with
them. Other sections of the county have
presented' such strong cliims 'that the
meetings have been held elsewhere until
I lie present time. The location is central
and accessible from all parts of the coun
ty. Undoubtedly a large representation
of the educational interest of the county
will gather at this meeting.
Tut: number of male students already
t 'trolled in the Susquehanna Collegiate
I ustitute the present term is the largest
ever registered in a single term. The num 7
tier of _ladies is larger than corresponding
feims in former years. Probablyithe num
ber of students enrolled during the term
will be the largest since the school was
opened. The teachers'f, class already has
over turfy, and before the close of the term,
will probably be above halt a hundred.
PAntms - appointed to solicit subscrip
tions for the Bradford County School
,Journal, should be prepared to report as
far as they can at Slieshetiulii during the
THE next session of the Bradford
Cininnty Teachers' Association, will be
held in Slieshequin, September 12 and 13.

Rural New Tarter:
. The advantage of sheltering lands
and'buildings by trees has long been
admitted by the more observing, and
many are now selecting groves as
their building spots, in order to avail
themselves of the protection these
dive from the high winds of . winter;
as well as from the fierce glare pf the
Summer sun. While many are doing ,
,this, there are not a few others mho
are pitching their homes on the* hill
tops, for removed 'from shades and
screens, regardless alike of the furi
ous blast and their 'own comfort .as
well as,that of their animals. True,
'such situations are well adapted for
the diriplay of white paint, a color
very common in the country; but
what ideas comfort or home can
be associat with such citadels up
on the h' never could imagine.
During t winter the' severity, of
the weather was a subject of remark
by everybody. Its winds were tie
fluent and unusually severe. Their
influence upon man and beast was
felt in a manner that might well lead
one to exclaim: "Is there not a rem
edy ?" Now I venture the assertion
that, not only was there much less
wind than in exposed places, but
that there was an average diilereice
of several degrees of temperature in
in favor of the protected localities.
The labor of planting out a suffi
cient membir of trees to break the
wind from the garden and buildings
connected is comparatively trifling.
A trench may be dug in which the
plow may be made to perform much
labor, and.the trees (evergreens) can
be removed in a short time, for they
may be found in old, pastures or
swamps, or at the nursery; where
they can be obtained at a trifling ex
pense. When once trapsplanted they
neei no further care than protection •
from animals that would 'otherwise
be almost certain in theearly s period
of their growth to destroy them. es-,
pecially the under branches, which
should be entire. I can imagine many
might urge as an objection that these
protecting belts would' occupy'too
much land. FOrtun.vtely, ours is a
country of sufficient extent to give
to every reasonable man the land
be wishes for eVery purpose of im
provement. ,' If it . were not so, the
land is' not lost on which trees are
growing, but is increasing . in 'vilue
at a high rate. But allowing it is
lost, what then, if the adjoining lands
are made to produce :More by the
loss than they did before the narrow
strip was occupied by the belt? The
increase of comfort in winter is also
to be added to the increased produc
tiveness of land. It is not aavonder
that farmers are more -engaged in
protecting their dwellings and gar
dens in this cheap and' simple way.
N. P. RICKS.
After killing, the carcasses dry and
thoroughly tool, - twenty-four hours
or so. The sides and hams are then
rubbed,over with Porto Rico molas
ses. Salt is heated • in,an iron vessel
to' a dry fine powder, and piniost
"red hot," when it is spread quickly
over the smeared pork, and when
coo! enough is thoroughly mixed
with the hand. After about three
days the same process is repeated.
They then lie in a dry and.tool place
for a couple of weeks, when they are
ready for smoking. No brine is used
to' toughen the pork or r hams or affect
the flavor. The smoking is contiued
at intervals, with care' not to get up
a heat by a continuous fire. Two
fires a day arc made with corn cobs
or dry oak or hickory. The total
smoking—that is, the timefthe meat
is well surrounded with smoke—is
100 to 120 hours in all.. After
smoking enough. the bacon or hams
are picked in dry barrels or hung up
and kept dry and cool. That to be
kept into or through the next sum
liter is rolled in plenty of newspapers,
packed in barrels and covered over
with a thick layer of dry wood ashes.
A gentleman who has tried it says
he has never lost a-pound, and never
failed to have bacon and hams sweet
and delicious to the taste, and com
manding the highest price in the
market. We should add, that in
curing very large hams by this pro
cess, as a safety precaution, he makes
small openings down to the bone
joints, and fills them with the hot
salt.- He cures beef in the same way,
but only puts it through the first
salting process. Indeed some of his
neighbors give pork and hams only
the first salting, but he deems the
second application, above described;
as better, and insuring. perfect sue
The black powder observed in
grains of wheat, oats, barley or lye,
and ears of corn,
is generally known
as smut. Viewed under a microscope
of high power this smut is seen to
be a mass of black, round balls.
These are the seeds of - a plant or
_fungus which has , several stages of
growth and finally reproduees a new
set of spores. These seeds will float
in the atmosphere, and adhere with.

grains of -wheat are sown with this
fungus ati,ached the fungus strikes .a
filament into the 'tissue of the plant
and.infects it as with poison. -- The
parasite penetrates throughon4the

A Pennsylvania Fruit Farm.

this farm is only about three miles
from this beautifulborough of Girard,
I venture - to l'eay that, many persons
in this township who are admirers of
rural beauty and choice fruit have
never seen , it. Of 10,000 or' 12,000
bearing fruit trees on these two bun
dred acres, 6,000' are apple trees;
1,500 pear- trees; 2 3 500 peach trees;-
and suolquince trees;
,all of choice
varieties._ When I visited the farm in
June, theiprospect for a fine yield of
apples, pears and peaches was flatter
ing; but the severe and protracted
droUght hati caused 'much of the
fruit to wither and fall. Mr. - B. has
six acres of grapes, mostly Concords,
although he grows Catawbas, Isabel
las and other choice kinds to aecom
niodate his cnstoiners. 'As his farm
is bounded on the 'west by a dense
forest, his fruit have never been in
jured by that destructive insect, the
"Fourteen acres of the farm are
planted to strawberries, raspberries
and blackberries. Mr. B. prefers the,
Crescent Seedlingto any other straw
berry for 'the table or market. Its
yield is wonderful. It is larg er than

Clean. The best way is to feed,good,
wholesome 'food, that: will prevent
the disease ; but
.that cannot always
be done; and then We have to resort
- to a cure, which I find generally a
very easy matter. Pare the nails of
the right , hand smooth and take as
.inuch clean lard, free. from salt, as
can be held by the points of the
fingers and thuMb. Insert the band
to the bottom of the sheath, and as
the. hand is 'withdrawn leave all the
lard. Repeat the operation two or
three times at intervals. of about two,
days, and my, experiece is

be all•right. If not, wash. out care:

fiVe years ago, and I finenow, when
my horses are fed on good pure hay
cetvell cured corn - fodder, free from

keep them clean. I have never seen

pigs are fed a great deal of heaity
food they are fond of, salt and char

indigestion -and the salt and chiv

well mix these things with their food
in the right proportion, and, more
over, it would not be best-to atteOpt
to force a pig- to eat them unleks it
wanted to, or. else its appetite might
be destroyed and harm came from
tbe , experirnent, but by mixing the
salt and charcoal together, and put
ting them in a box - accessible: to the
pigs, they will eat no more than they
require. There is no. danger

but to mix them in their food might
injure them, especially if Due of them
should possess a voracious appetite.
