6 FAEM AND HOUSEHOLD ITEMS We invite communications from all personswhn are interested in matters properly belonging to this department. 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 effected. 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 stock : 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 the foot. Should the cattle or stock be half fat ted, deduct 11 in every 280 pounds; if very fat add 14 for every 2S0 pounds. Brilliant Whitewash. 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 cabbage : " Make ground around the root a little dishing, and turn in a little brine." HOTELS. FER11Y HOUSE, XnviJlooinfield, Ta.
