FABAGABDEN AHD HOUSEHOLD.
CFroni the hjyatlt.3
Should you meet farmer John in the city,
You'd call him a country greenhorn,
You might look upon him with Pity,
Orperhapa with a feeling of scorn._
His great heavy boots, minus blackning,
His straw hat with wide, ample brim,
With gloves' and with necktie both lacking,
And his bronzed face puzzled' and grim.
The fops step aside as he passes. -
And glauce at their dainty, pinched feet,
And lisp their disgust to the lasses . 1
They happen to meet in the street.'
0 ! come from tho dust of the city,
Leave palace, and steeple, and dome,
Put by both your scorn and your pity,
'Till you see good farmer John's home.
—Far back froru the town's noise and bustle,
Where meadows and : Rastures are wide,
Where leaves on the appie-;;;.ulg,hs rustle,
And-comfort and pleasure abide.—
Where acres with beauty lie teeming,
And promise large produce to bring,
• A pleasant white farm-house is gleaming,
And farmer John reigns as its King.
How changed is his face as he nears it,
From that which he wore in thetown '
A broad smile breaks over and clears it
From puzzled expression and frown.
His good wife stands ready to greet him
With a smile that thrills thro his heart,
And all are so happy to meet him,
Though`only a bright day apart. '
His deep voice grows sweeter and lower,
As baby lips press his brown cheek;
He is happy, he asks for no _more; .
He is loved, what more need he seek?
His boys and girls are so merry,
The table so full and so white,
And all is so happy and cheery,
He envies no ruler his might.
0 I ye, with your city notions,
There's something more precious and
. sweet - '
Than graceful and elegant notions
In Walking the close and dusty street.
And farmer John, green as you call him,
So awkward and so coarsely olad,
Has had this great fortune befall him •
• And his *hole life is joyful and glad.
Cultivation by Hogs.
From a report in the Wisconsin Farmer,
of a late discussion by the Oswego Far 7
iners' Club, we clip the, following:
Capt. Barnes—l never yet wired or cnt a
hog's snout. Some mybnous specimens
may require it. but by, keeping them in the
right place, I could always make their dig
ging profitable. When a boy in New Eng
land, I knew a man who had a nice smooth
bit of meadow, which he would not plow,
as the ground was full of stone. It had
had a coat of soil washed on from higher
land, the points of stone that interfered with
the scythe had been broken off, and it was
often top-dressed with chips, dirt and ashes.
Well, there came two or three dry seasons,
the patch became sod-bound, and the white
grubs got into it, and it did not bear five
hundred pound's of hay to the acre. After
haying, the old man turned his hogs into it
and they rooted it completely over. Almost
every day some one would stop in the road
and shout, "Your hogs are rooting your
lower meadow all up." "Let 'em root,"
the old man would answer. In the fall he
luirrowedit well, and sowed on grass and
clover, rolled as soon as frost was
out in the spring, and his meadow was as
• good as ever.
Dea. Osgood—And I have seen pastures
that could not be plowed, kept in good or
derby hogs. When stony pastures get full
of brake, they dig after the break roots. and
a little grass seed sown on is all that is
needed. TMn in low, Moist pastures they
dig for angle worms, and keep the sod loose
and prevent moss and brake from coming
in. They are the - destroyers of all worms
that harbor in the ground. But- what will
you do: n our s pastures? They
dig after clover roots as well as worms and
morning glory,'and tear the ground all up.
Capt. Ratites-1- giYe them a turn at my
pasture before I break it up; they take ont
the clover roots and white grubs, and mel
low the land. But one year I failed to
break up a piece after it had been well
mited oyer stud it bore,more feed the next
summer than any other I pastured I would
- rather turn hogs on my meadows , in the fall
than cattle. It is a most wasteftil and de
structive practice to feed meadow short in
in the fall, as some men do.
• The , reporti generally are favorable in a
fair yield in this county and State. We esti
mate the crop M. New York at about 50,000
bales; Wisconsin expects to have.' 45,000.
• bbls, other Western -States will furnisli
.least 15,000 bales 7. and ..the Eastern 'and
Soushern States - 15,000 inore—making a to
tal of 125,000 bales. The home demand,
with a large barley crop, may call for 05,000
bales—leaving a surplus of 30.000 bales.
Shall we have a foreign demand for this
surplus ? Recent advices lead to the expec
tation that there will be an export demand
though not at high prices. The Producers'
Price Current of _the Bth says:
The advices from England are less favor
able than last week from nearly every dls
- trict; in some places the drought is so severe
that the vine makes no progress, and the
yield 'is thought to be seriously affected.
Careful London houses refuse to express-an
opinion as to the yield at present. The
drought is also severe in Germany, and the
yield_ will be smaller, from present appear
.an.c'es, than was estimated two weeks ago.
From France and the Belgian provinces re
ports are still highly favorable for a large
We learn from private advices that the
price of old hops has advanced in England
within the past month.
There are lots of very poor yearlings in
this county, in the hands of growers,-which
are not worth the sacking whichholds them.
Some lots for which growers—acting on the
suggestions and opinions of the Republi
can—last fall refused 40 to 50 cents, are
now selling slowly at 15 to 25 cents.
This year, as last, there will be no early I
demand for other than first -Sort hops; and
with; plenty of old hops at their disposal,
brewers will Lot pay high prices for the_best
of new hops. Little is yet said about prices
for the maturing crop, though dealers in
' this country.are expecting to buy at about
25 to 80 cents, to fill orders. •

Bo* to Bredk Steer&
At a meeting of the Weatminiater, Vt:,
:Farmers' -Club, tar. Horace Goodhue gave
-;the following method of breading, steers:
If a steer is very wild, place a snap in
his nose: and, lead., hfixi . carefully two or
thfes mil es .before yoking . ,Then' yoke the
steers itt'a well fencedternyard, and drive
them one hour around riell-the; fefice. The
fence prevents them turning to the right,
while the driver keeps them from leaving
the fence. Be gentle with them. Repeat this
lesson daily until they become somewhat
tractable, advance a step at the' word of
command and understand the utterance
"haw." when they may be driven across
the middle of the yard and readily taught
to "gee." Keep them carefully abreast.
After this give them a few , lessons by driv
ing in the highway. Then place them to a
I light cart.
Never overload a pair of steers, and when
they become oxen they will draw a great
load, thereby , making ample compensation
for their slowness when conipaled with
horses, Do not put young steers to work in
line with oxen; they will make slow travel
lers thereby. The -slow rate of travel
which is so justly charged upon oxen is the
result of their training, and might be easily
that some of the farmers thought oxen,
well trained ? of
, perfect docility, working
without a driver in the plough del as well
as`with one, costing nothing for the harness
except the yOke, and chains, lasting for
years, paying by their growth for their
food, not worn out Or liable to accident, or
becoming a dead loss to the owner, like a
horse, but ready-to be turned to beef at any
time, would perfoim as much work as a pair
of horses, at less expense, and be fur all
work except road travel, the cheapest team
the farmer can use., ;
Horses in Fly . Times.
The fiy, insignificant as it is in size and
dsvold of the power of doing any great
harm, is one of the most annoying of the
insect tribe. A nuisance to man, the fly is
the terror of the horse, whose flesh is made
to quiver wherever the foot of one touches
him. It il3, therefore, an act of humanity
to come to the aid of the horse, powerful as
he is, against his nimble assailant, the fly.
Here is a recipe which is said to be an ex
cellent defense against it. At all events, a
trial of it may not involve much expense,
nor.will it do harm should it prove unavail
mg as a defense to the horse: "Take two
or three small handsfull of walnut leaves,
upon which pour two or three quarts of
cold water; let it infuse one night, and pour'
the whole next morning into a kettle and
let boil for a quarter of an hour; when cold
it will be fit for use. No more is required
than to moisten a sponge, and before the
-goes out of the stable, let those parts
which are most irritable be smeared over
with the liquor, viz: between and upon the
ears, neck, flank, Not only the lady
or gentleman who rides out for pleasure
will derive benefit from the walnut leaves
thus prepared, but the coachman, the wag
oner, and all others who use horses during
the summer months."
The Ohio harmer lets off the following
Large horses are generally most
by farmers, but farmers are_most admired
who pony up.
Prosperity is generally based upon knowl
edge and industry; the swine will always
get most that nose most.
Farmers are like towls; neither will get
full crops without industry.
Because a man who attends a flock of
sheep is a shepherd, makes it no reason that
aman who keeps cows should be a cow-ard.
We like to see a farmer increase the
growth of useful plants and shrubs around
his home, but do not like to see him use
rails, poles, and boards to prop-a-gate.with.
Airing Milk—A Desideratum
Alluding to the newly invented milk
agitation now used in many of the cheese
factories, the llcica Herald adds: "What
really is needed, and it is what we have
urged from time to time, is some simple ap
paratus for airing the milk as well as cool
ing it before it goes into the can at 'the milk
barn. When such an invention' shall have
been made and 'put into general use, we
shall begin to manufacture cheese of that
pure, delicate flavor which it obtains among
some of the Cheddar dairies of England."
Tan =tattle plague in Illinois is mostly
confined to the country between Tolono
and Gilman, on the branch of the Illinois
Central Railroad. There it rages like an
epidemic, although from obtainable figures
the loss seems not as great as generally sup
posed. In four towns 1,500 head of cattle
have died of the disease, and the entire loss
tnroushout the State, it is estimated cannot
exceed 3,000. As the average value is $4O
to $45 a head, the loss in money is as yet
less than $140,000. This loss is more heavi
ly felt, because it falls upon a comparative
ly small community. The disease is limit
