THE DEATH OF THE AUBURN HORSE.
To the Editor-of the Tribune:
Sin: The death of Mr. Bonner's celebra
ted Auburn horse has suggested to me to
communicate to you, for the benefit of your
readers, a remedy which I have never men
fail to cure colic in horses. It is siraolY to
drench them with a preparation of chloric
and permaganic acid, which can be procured
, at an drug, store. _
I ave used it and seen it used repeatedly,
and ha.ve so much confider - ice in it that I
- wou dhe willing to insure the recovery if it
was dminlstered in time.
New York, Dec. 19, 1968.
(From Moore'4llural New Yorker.)
BTOCK RAISING AND DAIRYING.
Animals should be kept growing all the
time duritzg winter as well as summer. By
- thus doing heifers if of good breed, are of
'ample size to come in when they are two
• , years old; and thereafter, while making all'
' their future growth, they not only pay their
own way, but.' they pay a profit besides.
Stock. .rmaing and dairying in this section
should always be combined to realize the
highest success. In thfe way beeves may
be prepared for market when they are three
years bid, and so on all the way up to seven'
yearsold. If heifers, when they come in
'' promi eto beeome good milkers, they should
be kept until their frames attain the.largest
and most profitab4-size before_ they are fat tened for- *veil: '•,But _if for any reason 1
':they rove inneatisfactory as milkers; then
they cn be fattened at an earlier age. Still
the po rest milker can be made to give milk
enoug to pay the entire expense , of fatten
ing, While good milkers will pay a large
profit over and above such expense.
The whole secret of getting a large flow
of milk, from COWS is to feed high, and to
exercise good judgment in the kind of feed
used. In the summer season, when pas
tures are good, the flow of milk is usually
good;=,Without much care or attention.
' But even•at this favorable season, so advan
tageous is variety in food, it would be bet
ter to give costs a little well cured hay or
clover everyday, which is frequently craved
for by animals stomachs, filled to excess with
the juices•of green grasses. To have access
even to a stack of wheat straw is highly
- beneficial; and this of itself has been found
• a. complete preventative of hoven in cattle
when turned out on to green and succulent
clover in spring. -
But it is the fall, winter and spring, when
the flow of milk too often fails to be kept
up in milch cows, to be profitable,they should
have all the feed they want: The more
they will eat, the greater the profit to be
derived from them. Hence it is an object
to vary their food, so they will have at all
times a good appetite and be heavy eaters.' I
Two quarts of corn meal placed in a bucket
and the bucket filled two thirds full of
. boiling hot'water, anti the whole ; stirred,
and ,atterwards wheat bran added to thick
en, until the vessel is gilled (letting it ! stand
- long enough to get sofficiently cooled), is
an excellent morning and evening niess for
a cow. But oil tike meal in the placeof the
, i corn meal, serves as a good substitute, a
_third or half the time. At noon each day
a peck (orlialfapeck) bf turnips or beets,;
; --- carets, potatoes,.or apples should be given.
''..- , • As turnips, however, and oil cake meal also,
- - are apt,t4 impart a slightly objectionable
taste to tql milk, unless fed immediately
after milking,the noon feeding would be bet
,ter to be the corn meal and bran, when the
former articles are a portion of the dally
feed. Of course an ample supply of clover
litty,.corn fodder or sheaf oats, should , be
given besides the three messes we have
' named. Clover hay is always excellentlor
milch cows, and as two and half tons can
be grown to the acre tone and a half tons
the first cutting, and one ton the second cut
ting,) this should uniformly be provided
as being the best and most economical hay.
Corn fodder, however, when on hand, may
be given alternately with this. Of course
cows should have all the pure water they
In this section probably no feed is so
cheap to raise for animals as corn. There
is as much nutriment in a bushel of corn
meal as there is in fOur or five bushels of
turnips. And yet, so beneficial are roots,
that we would willingly pay the same price
for turnips as for corn, rather than a cow
should not have at least half a peck of tur
nips or something similar every day.
Mulch cows, en care of in the manner
we hare dee ribed, will be increasing in
' flesh all thro gh the winter, and the milk
from each cow will be worth at least fifty
-cents a day. Consequently ten cows, giv
ing milk throughout the winter, would
bring in a dailyprofit of three- dollars, be
sides the increase in flesh of the cows and
the immense quantity of manure produced.
. NOW MUCH I.IANITBE DO-WE USE OXAN ACRE.
An acre of land contains 43,560 square
feet, 4,840 square yards, or 160 square rods.
By those whe have used guano, it is said.
.300 lbs is sufficient to nsanure an acre; 320 f
lbs would give just one ounce avordupois
to the,square yard. One pubic yard would
give a trifle over one cubic inch to the square
foot - A - cubic yard of highly concentrated
manure, like night soil, would, if evenly
spread, manure an acre very well. A cubic
yard of long manure will weigh about 1,400
_lbs. a cubic foot not far from 50 lbs. A cord
contains 128 'cubic feet; a cord and a quarter
' would give about a cubic foot to the square
Tod. If liquid manure
. be used it would
• take 180 'ibis to give one gill to, the square
foot upon an acre, which would be equal to
about 40 pipes or large hogsheads. It would
-- itie quite useful if farmers would' be a little
more specific as to the amount of manure
' applied. .
Tap. BEST TIHH TO SCRAPE AND CLEAN
Pflany farmers form goOd resointions dur
ing the winter for agricultural and horticul-
Ural operations, which they hope to reduce
'to practice as the seasons advance. They
are anatious to get , at it, and often under
take too much. •
One of. these resolutions is generally, and
we speak from experience now; to serape
and clean the fruit trees early in the
spring, in order to head of insect depreda
tions; this has been, and is frequently. done
-, too early in the season. Some 'of our most
experienced orchardists tell us that if done'
in Nara or April the bark of the trees will
turn black, and will not regain their
healthy, smooth appearance for two or three
years thereafter. The .operation above
, spoken of should be performed , in .the early
Part oi June, when the tree is in; fall leaf, if
the fall benefit alai be derived - therefrom.
—Rural Wora '
Tnr. "bee cholera" is raging in Clinton
county, Ohio. Henry Hawkins, of New
' 'Burlington, has lost thirty out of eighty
Lives. He says: that by careful observation
he has discovered that the bees were attack
ed with a violent purging, and that the mat.
ter thm evacuated being ofa glutinous qual
ity, clung to and bedaubed the bees in such
a manner as to' finally almost retard their
motion. Their wings became so glued up
that in ,sttempting to fly they drop down a
short dialance from the hive and perish.
,wirEN TO SELL GRAIN.
iThen ;4o sell grain is a subject of much
interest t 4 farmers. Whether to sell nos;
or to "hold over," whether :wheat will be
worth mole next month or next springthan
it is now, are questions which have puz
zled the brains of many farmers. A farmer
writing to an exchange paper expresses 'his
opinion as follows :
"The better way for farmers is, sell when
you are ready. • Not once, nor twice, nor
one year and another, hut matte it a rule, :
Trust not to your impulses; avoid belt/gin;
fluenced by your feelings. It is often grasp
ing; is not healthy; is not to be encouraged,
"Many years of observation has convinc.
al us that this is the right course. Save
your interest and waste caused by mice and
vermin, save your grain from losses b•,- fire
accidents. Be content as you will be if the
responSibility is oil' your mind. You
lose. lint you will gain also; your neighbor
may ttiumph over you one year, or two;
but 'your time is coming, and on the whole
you- are the gainer. This is experience,
this is the truth in selling grain; it is the
clean Satisfactory thing."
W. H. C. P
To have it in prime order it should be
•, from four to five weeks old, not older, and
should be killed and dressed l ithe day before
roasting. Make a stilling of bread crumbs,
dry, and two or three good onions chopped
fine, and about two tablespoonsful of finely
powdered sage, well seasoned with salt and
pepper. Allow no water in the pan; bake
whole in a good oven, and rub often with a
little bag of butter. When done, the fat
-should be all poured from the pan, a little
water added to the brown gravy, boiled up,
and either poured over the pig or served in a
tureen. It should be served with hotplates,
apple sauce, hot, and very nice onion sauce.
The onion sauce is made in the following
way, and is excellent with roast leg of mut
ton, boiled-mutton, or roast pork: Peel six
or seven good sized onions, and boil in
water. When tender, drain and chop fine.
Set it to boil a little over it pint of milk—
water will`do if you have no milk, but it
will require more butter. Take a table
spoonful of flour, blend it with a small piece
of butter, and stir the milk. When boiling,
put in the onions and serve hot.
Alum, half a pound; water, two quarts.
Dissolve the alum in the Water, first having
it coarsely ; powdered, as this will hasten the
process of solution. It in# be put at once
into cold water, and left to stand until id is
dissolved, or the water may be heated as
soon as the alum is put bath it, stirring the
mixturein the meantime. I When it has be
comes so hot that it can only l be borne for
an-instant by the hand, , it s ready for use.
The feet must now be dip ed in and taken
out of the bath repeatedly until it becomek
cool enough to allow them o remain. Let
the feet soak until the water begins to feel
cool to the hand, then take them out and
allow them to get dry withobt wiping them.
The feet should be washed in warm 'mite'
before using the bath. The mixtute may be
kept in, a jug or bottle where it will not
freeze, and can be used repeetedly for an in
definite length of time. As a rule, one ap
plication is sufficient for the time being; if
not, then it is best to repeat it atter twenty
four hours intervening. Although not a
sure preventive of future attacks of the
trouble, when exposed to the causes which
produce it, still in many instances it seems
to go liar towards this desirable result.
[Translated for the Philadelphia Ermine, Bulletin.)
It is an excellent habit in family cooking
to serve up meat boiled in the soup with
some tasteful garnish. (It is of the first im
portance, for a good soup, to put but very
few vegetables in proportion to the meat in
to the boiler.) Candidly, even with mus
tard, boiled beef all, dry is not luxurious.
Cabbage constitutes one of the best and
simplest garnishes for boiled beef.
dai.nis — h of Cabbage: —Cut the cabbage,
wash it carefully, and then cook it with salt
in water. Drain the pieces, then press them
between the hands to extract as much water
as possible. Pat them in a sauce pan with
dripping and a little lard; moisten with a
few spoonsful of sour), season With salt and
pepper, and let them simmer in a corner un
It was at the Monastery of La Trappe, in
the kitchen where they prepare the meals of
visitors, that I found the following recipe:
Potatoes a la Peletine. —C ut slices of onion
and brown them in butter, then mix in
discs of potato boiled in water. When well
stirred together, though without bruising,
moisten with milk; allow to boil five or six
minutes, and serve. \ A little powdered su- t •
gar will improve the dish to some tastes.
To Prepare Vealii V kelp. —Out into thin
slices and season high. Beat two eggs well,
dip the veal in the egg, then into crushed
cracker, and fry in nutter or lard to a light
brown. Veal in this Way is' delightful.
To Stew a Shoulder 'of Hutton. —Bone and
flatten a shoulder of mutton; sprinkle over
it pepper and salt, roll it up tightly, bind it
with tape, and put it into a stew -pan that
will just hold it, pour over it a well seasoned
gravy maile with the bones, cover the pan
closely, and let it stew till tender; before
servingltake off the tape, and thicken the
gravy. It will take about three hours to
stew. , •
Stale Cake Pudding. —One quart of sweet
milk, the yolk of three eggs; sweeten and
flavor to---the taste. Put it In a pudding
dish, lay in four or five thin slices of stale
cake, and bake twenty minutes. Beat the
whites of the eggs a little, flavor, spread ft

A graduate of Epicurus does me the hon
or to communicate this recipe, by which all
his own sour-trout is prepared. I transcribe
it literally :
Sour- Crout with Smoked Bacon. —To make
about font' pounds of Sour-Uri:mt.—Wash
the cabbage in several waters; drain it well;
put it in a pot or boiler with half a pound
of fat pork, quarter of a pound of butter,
an onion, and a respectable piece of lean
bacon or smoked ham, previouslY soaked
for an hour in warm water to take away,
the taste of smoke; place onion, with pork
or ham in the middle of the sour-crout,
moisten with "a bottle of white wine and
covering the sourecrout with broth, letting
it cook slowly for four hours, taking care to
replace the liquid lost by evaporation, with
hot water. -
Certain amateurs add to this seasoning
twenty or-thirty juniper betries, and as
many grains of whole pepper.
To serve, drain the sodr-crout, place it in
a dish, cover it with pork cat in slices, and
sausage, separately cooked, also sliced. ' •
