We invite communications from all personswhn are
interested in matters properly belonging to this
Itcmcdics for Garget.
A writer in Moor's Rural New York
er eays :
" Having a fine young cow to calve
shortly after, and finding that her udder
was very much inflamed and caked, I
concluded to try a solution of ammonia,
which I always keep in the stable for
abating inflammation from. wounds and
bruises on the horse, composed of one
half to three-quarters of an ounce of mu
riate of ammonia to one quart of water,
and although the swelling was not ail
gone the next morning, it was in about
three days, and I think if wo had wash
ed or bathed her bag five or six times a
day, instead of two or three times a day,
the cure would have been much sooner
Another states that two ounces of rc
' lined ifaltpetro dissolved in water, and
given every night and morning, would
effect a speedy cure of garget. I never
found it necessary to give more than four
loses, and have cured very bad cases. I
supposed that this simple remedy was
well known ; but as I have not seen it
published, I send it. I think it should
bo known to every farmer.
Another common remedy is to cut a
piece of " poke root," or " scoko root" or
" garget weed," thrice as large as a man's
finger, into small pieces, and mingle them
with her slop every day.
To Compute the Weight of Cattle.
The following is said to be a reliable
rule for ascertaining the weight of live
For cattle measuring five to seven feet
in girth, back of the shoulders, multiply
the girth in inches, by the length in
inches from the square of the buttock to
a point even with the point of the shoul
der blade, and divide this by 144 for su
perficial feet; multiply this by 2:1 the
allowance of pounds per superficial foot.
For cattle from seven to nine feet in
girth, allow 31 pounds per square foot.
For cattle, hogs and sheep, of from 3
to 5 feet iu girth, allow 16 pounds, and
less than three feet, allow 11 pounds to
Should the cattle or stock be half fat
ted, deduct 11 in every 280 pounds; if
very fat add 14 for every 2S0 pounds.
Take half a bushel of nice unslaked
lime, slake it with boiling water, and
cover it during the process to keep in
the steam. Strain the liquid through a
fine sieve, and add to it a peck of fine
salt, previously dissolved in warm water;
three pounds of ground rice boiled to a
paste and stirred iu hot; half a pound of
Spanish whiting, and a pound of clean
glue thoroughly dissolved. Add five gal
lons of hot water to the whole mixture,
stir it well, and let it stand a few days
covered from the dirt. It should be put
on hot, and for this purpose it can be
heated in a small kettle on a portable
furnace. This whitewash wul keep
ttright for years.
Beans for Sheep.
Bean straw is valuable for sheep, and
-when properly cured they eat it with
avidity. In a chemical analysis of beans,
it is found that they abound with a great
er quantity of the elements of wool than
any other grain or vegetable, to make
sheep produce heavy fleeces. They will
eat them with avidity, whole or ground,
evon in a damaged stat To store flocks
during tho winter season give generally a
.jpint of beans per day, and potatoes. Corn
is good for fattening sheep, but not so
valuable as beans, peas, oats, and most
other grains, for the production of wool.
Bugs Eating Vines. To keep bugs
off your cucumber, squash and other
vines, take straw or hay, free from seed,
if coarse, cut it short; cover the vines as
soon a3 out of the ground; the vines lift
it easily. It keeps tho bugs off, and on
light soils proves a capital mulch, and
serves as a good coat of manure. It is
easy, practical, useful and requires no re
moval. How to Make Good Candles.
TJto two pounds of alum for every ten
pouuds of tallow ; dissolve in warm wa
ter before the tallow is put in ; then melt
the tallow in the alum water with frequent
stirring. This will clarify and harden
the tallow so as to make a most beautiful
article, either for euunmcr or winter use,
.almost as good as sperm.
Preserving Dried Fruits from Worms.
In tho spring, before the worms have
mado their appearanco, or even after you
can detect a feio, wash your fruits in a
liberal quantity of warm water, as if you
were preparing them for cooking. Shako
the water from them, and dry either in
the house or out, as may be convenient.
They will dry in a few hours. And this
time you will bo too early for the insects,
and therefore secure the eating of your
own delicious fruits.
To Stupef y Bees. Put two teaspoon
fuls of chloroform into a cup; soak a bit
of rag in it; then put tho rag into tho
box or hive, closing tho entrance. The
bees will almost immediately begin to
drop, and in less than ten minutes every
bee will bo stupefied. They will recover
in about half an hour: but will not fully
recover their activity till the next morn-
Club-Foot Cabbage. The following
is given ia a remedy for this trouble with
" Make ground around the root a little
dishing, and turn in a little brine."
