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 f , 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. Very truly, 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 want. 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. i rk 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 . .F.BEHT TIMES. 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 ,will 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 til wanted. 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 over -the top, and brown lightly. To be eaten cold. Cojee Cake. -One.cup 'of sugar, one do. each bf molasses, coffee and butter, one egg, one teaspoonful each of •dbda and cream tar- tar, one teaspoonful each kind of spice. Fruit to the taste. , Don't mix too hard not as hard as fruit case. When it rises even in the dish, and bakes so it is right, it makes a splendid fruit cake, and, better by standing. A substantial aliment, and very azreeable results from the simplest of preparations. There are folks who say that monks are of no utility. I'cry them false, and sign my name to it. 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. ' • Approved—Baron Brisse.—Pelit Journal. TIIE Fayette county, lowa, Union of last week says : "Nearly every one of the per sons who planted hop yards IA this vicinity last spring will plow them up. Those who were the most anxious to hop into-the bust ne es, are now the most anxious to hop out. There are a number of families in the county who havalately fled, destitute and in debt, from the hop region of Wisconsin, victims of the hop epidemic." IIOW TO MAST .
