A writer in tin; Prairie Farmer
fC'iwn Lis experience as follows: "I
was just Lpginiiinjj to farm, and I
was desirous of knowing the lest
vruy to fatten hogs, tried the different
plan?, and - also how ranch pork a
barrel of corn would make. 1 made
a floored pen and covered it in.
Wcigheithive hogs and put them ia
the pen. I also weighed three of
the same size and put them in a dry
lot average weight, one hundred
and peventy-five pounds. I fed six
barrels of corn to the eix hogs. They
were fortv davg eating the corn, with
plenty of alt water. Their average
gain was seventy-five pounds. The
hogs in the lot gained the most. One
that was fattened in the lot gained
t-ighty-eight pounds; the other four
were not so thrifty, 'f hesc hogs were
ubout fourteen months old when
slaughtered. I put them in the 25th
of October. There was a good deal
of sleet and snow during the month
of November, which gave the hogs
in the pen an Advantage they would
not Lave hud if the weather was fav
orable ; they ate the same quantitity
of grain in the same time. It also
showed that one bushel of corn will
make fifteen pounds of pork.
Knwlc1?c- Require! ia Farming-.
There are many who look upon
farming as rather a small business,
who think that its successful prosecu
tion requires only a little common
sense just enough to prompt the
hardy worker to seek shelter in a rain
storm, nnd a very little knowledge,
just sufficient to count a flock of sheep,
or read a political newspaper. The
opinion was once more general than
now, for the world is growing wiser,
yet at the present time it is en
tertained by many. It is an old and
true saying, that ' honor and shame
from no condition rise," that honor is
only acquired by acting well our part
in whatever situation we may be
placed. A man of ability and knowl
edge who devotes all his energies to
Lis business will make it honorable
nnd profitable, no matter how insig
nificant that business may at first
There is no business requiring such
varied acquirements, so much knowl
edge, so much good judgment and
commercial ability combined, as is
" neecessary for a thoroughly accom
plished farmer. lie stands first
among the manufacturers of the laud,
he makes the wheat and .oru, the
beef and mutton and pork, the wool
and flax ; and manufactures from the
earth, the air, the water, nearly all
that wc eat and wear ; and this is not
only done by farmers as a class, but
almost every one prodnees many,
if not oil, of these articles.
The manufacturer usually confines
his labors to the production of one
article, but the farmer is by necessity
nnmnflliwl i.i iiinl-n mnnv If lti.
lvnnhl ninlo nrnin :o intwt i.r tnnko!
beef or butter, or cheese, or mutton
and wool. Hence the necessity of
fxtrnsive knowledge. It is an easy
matter lor the manufacturer to ascer
tain how much wool will make a vard
. of cloth of a certain description, and
what will I its cost ; but it is- not so
easv for the farmer to ascertain how
much gras or hay or grain will make
a pound of wool. The manufacturer
can test a new machine and ascertain
by a few simple trials whether it will
manufacture the desired article
cheaper or letter than the old ; but to
ascertain how a pound of beef can he
made " the cheapest, what machine
will convert hay into rich cheese, in
the cheapest and best manner, is a
matter requiring a good deal more
care and skill.
Among his varied acquirements,
the farmer should possess a knowl
edge of animal physiology, so as to
be enabled to keep his stock in health
and administer proper remedies in
case of sickness. Vegetable physiol
ogy too must not be overlooked.
Every day during the growing sea
sou the fanner performs work for the
growth of his crops founded on the
known laws which govern vegetable
life. Entomology is a science the
farmer is compelled to study to some
extent, and often much more perhaps
than he desires, but the more lit does
so the better he is fitted to wage a
successful war against thousands of
In addition to all this, the farmer
must le a merchant, for he must sell
as well as manufacture. He must, in
some measure, take advantage of the
rise and falf of prices, select the best
time for selling aDd the best market,
or after all his toil and anxiety he
may find Lut a Kor return.
WLcn wc contemplate this subject
at which we have merely glanced, in
all its bearings, wc are led to exclaim,
"Who is competent to this work ?"
Heartily do we pity those who think
that farming furnishes no scope for
the exercise of knowledge or ability.
If this opinion were entertained only
by those engaged in other pursuits,
it would be of no serious consequence,
but we judge that many farmers have
themselves irnbi!ed 6uch unfounded
end unjust opinions in regard to their
calling, and where this is the case
there is an end to nil improvement.
A man must have a good opinion or
Lis calling, a proper appreciation -of
itg importance,, nnd the means and in
formation necessary for its successful
prosecution or he cannot hope to Succeed.-
Manure for Orchard.
Wood ashes are doubtless excellent
for orchards, but instead of being put
round the trees, they should he spread
over the the whole land. Hut where
ore the ashes to conic from in tLis re
gion? We have little or no wood,
and of course little or no ashes. In
our limited experience, we have learn
ed one thing in regard to orchards as
well a6 fruit trees of every kind that
we have cultivated, and wc believe
the principle can be ispplied pretty
much to everything that grows upon
the earth, which is, that the ajy-iira-Hon
of manure benefits them ail.
Ground occupied with fruit trees
should be manured as are other por
tions of the land used for the raising
of wheat and corn. It is the neglect
to do so. in connection with the gen
eral negligence with which orchards
ore treated in many sections, that
makes them unprofitable and to be
come worn-out prematurely. Aud as
to the kind of manure with which
orchards ought to be treated: While
any kind, almost without exception,
will prove of advantage, there is none
in the world to he compared to stable
or l arnyard manure. A liberal appli
cation ouly every third year, with
careful pruning and scraping of the
trees, and ferreting out the borers,
will make a prodigious change in an
orchard. Autumn, even in Decem
ber, if the ground is not roien, is
perhaps the t time to apply it.

Formation of Coal.
Under each coal scan a stratum of
ancient soil exists, in which there arc
commonly found the roots of ancient
trees; while above the coal there is
commonly a layer of shale or sand
stone, in which not unfrcquently the
trunks of those trees are found either
fallen or still in their original posi
tions, and only partially canverted
into coal. The bark remains, but is
transmuted Into coal: the hollow of
the trunk, decaying long lieforc the
trunk gave way, is represented by a
cast In the sandstone. Thus, if we
try to picture to ourselves the state of
things which existed when such a
seam of coal first began to be covered
hy the next higher deposit, wc sed
that there must have been trees stand
ing erect above a layer of vegetable
matter, the roots of the trees Itcing
embedded in the soil which forms the
deposit next below the coal. The veg
etable layers may probably have been
two or three times as thick as the res
ulting coal-seam, and were reduced
by pressure to their present thickness.
A IogrH Affection and Kaarity.
Master Henry Bemr, of Toledo,
owned a prince Edward spaniel, who
was his constant playmate. A very
warm affection sprang up between
the little fellow aud bis siiajrarv com
Some weeks since the lad
was taken Rl and died. During the
latter portion of the bov's illness the
faithful animal refused food and fret
ted continually lccause he was de
nied admittance into the room. Short
ly before the decease, taking momen
tary advantage of an unguarded door,
he spraug into the room and on the
bed, exhibiting the greatest delight at
the meeting. Previous to, and dur
ing the funeral ceremonies, the dog
used every means to gain admittance
to the room where the corpse was ly
ing, and it required the greatest care
to keep him from attaining his object,
When the casket was removed from
the house, the dog, in turn ensconced
himself in several of the mourners'
carriages before being allowed to re
main. A few days subsequent to the
funeral, Mrs. Bender, accompanied by
the dog, visited the cemetery. When
still some squares away, the animal,
who had been lagging behind, sud
denly pricked up his ears and started
ahead at the ton of his speed, and,
on the lady's arrive! at the grave, the
dog had torn away the turf covering
of the sepulchre, and was rapidly
making way into the grave, and force
was nceessary to dissuade him from
his purpose. As is generally the case
with mankind, the bereavement has
materially changed the actions of the
dog, who seems to have lost all ambi
tion, and to be continually in search
of some one.
How rbromon are Made.
Probably very few, even of those
ersons who are generally well in
formed Lave the slightest conception
of the various processes bv which
those wonders of modern imitative
art, popularly known as Chromos,
arc gradually developed, step by step,
to a perfection which almost defies
discrimination in comparing with the
original. The lithographic cr stone
process, is that generally used ia this
country ; but Laving been found too
slow, and inherently defective for
rendering some of the most delicate
tints, great effort Las been made to
hnd ti substitute by which a higher
degree of iMTfection could be attain
ed, and the superior productive cap
acity of relief substituted for the un
certainties . nnrt delays of surface
printing. .. i
Many years ago, Mr. t harles fetahl,
a lithographic engraver of high rep
ute, directed Lis attention to this sub
ject and after years of patience and
enthusiastic devotion, he Las over
come all difficulties end Las t-o per
fected his process as to insure a com
plete revolution in the art of color
Messrs. James Sutton & Co., of 5S
Maiden Lane, New York, publishers
of TJie Atdine, adopted big process
for the production of their Premium
Chromos, some three rears ago; and
witb the increased facilities thus plac
ed at Lis disposal, Mr. Stahl has been
enabled to achieve the most admirable
results and the firm arc' new printing
Chromos, eqnal in everr respect to
the very best foreign specimens.
1 he picture to be copied is cover
ed with a transparent sheet of oiled
paper, on which a tracing of every
outline is made, i This outline is then
transferred to a lithoirraphic stone,
known as the "Key." A number of i
plates, equal to the nuinucr of tints
desired, is next prepared, and an im
pression from tbc Key ia printed on
each. With tbe original hoforc bira,
tie artist fills in with a crayon such
portions of the outline on each plate
as be wishes to have reproduce tbe
particular shade assigned to it .
Tho untouched portions of the plate
arc then ooTercd w ith a peculiar pre
paration, and a palvaiiio bath uieely
governed, docs tbc work c;f an en
graver, but docs it as no engraver
could possibly, do it true to n hair,
and finer, if necessary, than the nak-'
ea ej c can discover. h,acu plate is
printed in Us turn on the paper, and
every impression must be so adjusted
to its predecessors, that there shall
not be the slightest variation..
When it is considered that as many
as twenty or thirty plates arc often
required that sumo portions of a
tint are preserved pure to the end,
while others are covered and affected
by one or all succeeding impressions
tbe marvelous skill and knowledge
of various combinations of color re-
iquredofon artist who essays to lay
out and complete the plates for a
Chromo, may he faintly imagined by
those who see and admire the splen
did results of his labors.
In The Aldine establishment may
be seen -two immense Cottrell k
Babcock printing machines, selected
for their accuracy of register and per
fect distribution. These pressers arc
constantly occupied in printing the
Chromos to be given as premiums to
subscribers to Tht Aldine for 1873.
The process of relief printing has,
among many, this very important ad
vaut ge over lithography : the print
ing is not from surface transfers
never pefect, and continually demand
ing renewal but directly from the
engraving itself, which, being on
hard metal, will not wear out Per
sons who are satisfied with the speci
mens showen, may be assured that
tho copies they get will be even bet
ter, as practice constantly improves
the adjustment of the colors.
Since The Aldine originated the
plan of giving subscribers Chromos
free, nearly every paper of any pre
tension has adopted the idea, and
many things called Chromos have
been extensively advertised and puff
ed over the country. The well
known artistic standing of The Al
dine was a guarantee that its Pre
mium Chromos would be everything
that the most fastidious could desire;
and the specimens of "The Village
Belle" and "Crossing the Moor," now
before us, fully justify every expec
tation. ( ,
The superior facilities of the pub
lishers enable them to deliver a large
edition of these Chromos to subscrib
ers immediately, and they can keep
pace with a demand equal to 20,000
pairs per month from January.
It is estimated that before June
1st, over 2.500,000 impressions will
be printed on each of these Chromos,
which would give 100,000 pairs.
Such an edition of Chromos of such
a grade and size (14x20 inches each),
is an utterly unheard of thing, and a
year ago would have caused our
slower cousins across the water to
laugh at the project as a fool. But
this is not a country or precedents;
it is only asked is the thing possi
ble? and re.to! American enter
prise does it.
A Roabera' Rctrrat.
A thickly wooded island, known as
Long Island, about fourteen miles
from Muscatine , in the Mississippi,
has turned out be a regular robbers'
nest. The discovery was made by
the police of Davenport, who, having
had their suspicions aroused, visited
the spot recently, but on reaching it
found that the thieves had fled. Many
evidences, however, of occupation of
the island were strewn around. Box
es of all kinds and many sizes were
thick on the ground, with bits of
Wu. u pieces o. .uu .... Tv
nerc ana mere an om garment, mm
many signs of carpenter wort. Ac
cording to the report of farnu-rs living
near by, the island has leen aban
doned by the villains only the day be
fore, when they had loaded a large
yawl and skiff with plunder aud start
ed southward. 'onc of the houses
in the vicinity of the island hud been
touched by the thieves, and the farm
ers thought the people on the island
were a party of sportsmen, for they
were often seen fishing in the river
starting off with their guns upon their
shoulders as if going upon a hunt.
It is supposed that the most of the
burglaries which have been commit
ted in Davenport, Muscatine, Wilson,
West Liln-rty, and other localities in
that section, during the summer were
the work of an organized band which
inhabited the island, whq used the
secluded spot for secreting their ill
A I-ondoai Fire.
On the day when lsoston was
burning doAvn, a great lire was con
sumin": the larircst and what was
supposed to be the most thoroughly
fire-proof buildintr in London. This
was the gigantic City Flour Mills, in
Lpper Thames street, near Jslack-
friars' bridge. A London paper thus
describes the building and its destruc
From its extraordinary height it
towered above all the other wharves
and buildings in the neighborhood,
and it had no less than 400 windows
in and around it. There were seven
stories to it, each of them being di
vided into warehouses and machine
rooms, and the quantity of grain that
was continually kept in it was ex
tremely large. It had a river front
age sixty-five feet in length, and one
of like size in Upper Thames street,
and between the latter street and the
was a distance of 250
feet, all occupied by the mill. There
was also a long creek at the western
side of it, from which barges might
be laden. The fire was discovered
by a city policeman on duty in Queen
Victoria, street fchortly before seven
o'clock in the morning. Ho noticed
an unusual glare in a part of the
third floor abutting on Thames street,
and he aroused the watchman. , The
constable ran immediately to the
chief station of the Metropolitan Fire
Brigade in Waiting street, and raised
the alarm. Information of the Cre
was also given at the Fire Brigade
baracks in Boss court, Thames street,
and a large number of men were at
once sent to the mills. Two engines,
one a powerful steamer were got out
on Wailing street, and in less than
five minutes were on tho way to tKc
fire in charge of Captain Shaw and a
body of ten or twelve firemen. On
arriving they found the greater part
of the third floor, in which the fire
had originated, in fiamcp, and they
then telegraphed to all the other sta
tions of the metropolis for assistance.
Orders were also given for the float
ing engines moored at Southwark
bridge, Millwall, Ilothereithe and
Millbank to be brought to the spot
These instructions were speedily
obeyed, and very soon thirty engines
and upward of 200 firemen, under the
direction of the four sncrinteudents.
were in attendance ready for work.
Tbc float also appeared in due time
and got as near to tho burning premi
ses as tbe condition of tbe tide at the
time would allow. A capita! supply
of water was obtained, but the fire,
in spite of every effort that the skill
of the firemen enabled tbcin to make,
ppread gradually throughout the "en
tire upper part of tbe building. Tbc
floors one by one pave way with a
tremendous crash, throwing the en
tire weight of the contents on
those beneath, and it is now said
that the two lower floors, which arc
untouched, are bending so much with
the prcssarc that it is impossible they
can long keep up. Although being
daylight; no reflection of the flames
was visible, yet as the fire became
known the bridg and all the streets
in the neighbotdood ' were densely
crowded. On the river also the float
ing engines were surrounded by skiffs
and other small craft, and filled with
spectators. Tbe land engines played
from every conceivable point round
the building. Firemen stood on the
Irooffof high premises abutting upon
the mills, and thence managed toj

however, to bo made, for the fire,
which began at 7 o'clock in the morn

continue in that state for a day or
two, owing to the immense bulk of
the smouldering contents, though all !
danger is over. The roof fell early
in the day. The damage to adjacent
buildings is inconsiderable, and arises
mostly from water. When darkness
set in the reflection of the fire Avas

numerous windows, was lit up by the

There are very few men that have

Nothing could be further from the

Kdnrattlon and the Krxf.
The plan of educating boys and
girls together is growing in favor.
For a long time the great authority
in support of the system was Horace
Mann, the most eminent of American
educators. Originally he had grave
doubts with regard to the desirabili
ty of system, but in 1852 he was
made President of Antioch College,
and after five years' experience be
came to the conclusion that these
doubts were without foundation. In
a letter to a friend, which is frequent
ly quoted, be says : "We have really
ono of tho most orderly, sober, dili
gent and exemplary institutions in
the country. . Ve passed through tbe
last term, arc more thaif half tLrough
this and I have not had occasion to
make a single entry of any misde
meanor in our record book." Gradu
ally the system which thus received
the sanction of Mr. Mann has been
adopted in a great many of the States.
In 1870 it was introduced into the
University of Michigan, one of the
largest and mo&t flourishing in tbc
Union, and although the period since
elapsed is too short, one would think,
to test such au experiment, the result
is spoken of in the most enthusiastic
manner. President White, of Cor
nell University, has also satisfied him
self of the superior advantage of tbe
co-cducation of the sexes. And iiov
a movement has been set on foot to
admit tbem to Harvard also. This
has not yet been done, but in a pub
lished report one of the overseers of
the college states that he believes "the
system is good in itself; that it is in
accordance with tho ideas of modern
society ; that iu practice it has work
