farm Sar&fit & i&itclint FATENTNG FOWLS. All Summer long the (armor and his family have fussed with the poultry; the young chickens and turkeys need care in the lung rain U>nns, and protection against nocturnal depredators. Just as they are fully grown and out of danger, the shrewd huckster makes bis appearance, buys, fattens, and prepans them for market, and pockets the profits fr his smartness. Obviously, the farmer had better fatten hi* fowls and send them to market himself. He can do it with less trouble, perhaps, than he imagines. Feed liberally at all times, so as to keep tbem growing thriftly, but about twenty days before being slaughtered, feed them in thia way : Make a coop for one dot fowls ; more should not be put together. The coop should ba three feot long, two feet wide and two and a half high— make the sides of bars, and about three inches a part,the bottom of round poles two inches apart, the fop of a board- Place this in a comfortable room, el evated two feet Irom the floor, in the ham < r poultry house, where the cold wind will In kept away, and where the light will bedim Attach feed troughs all around the outside. — Commence feeding very light, giv ng little water the first day ; then feed regular three or four times per day with the strongest focd as oat meal mixed with milk, boiled barley or corn. Observe the utmost cleanliness,and give a supply of fresh water. In twenty days the poultry should be killed, and f->r such the farmer would find plenty of greedy buyers willing to pay the highest price,—Ru ral New Yorker. APPLE TREKS. —Tbe raoi on your young •pple trees it not tbe cause, but rattier in consequence of the decay of the trees. If your treat were properly set. and if you have kept the gtound cultivated to some hoed crop since, as you should do. applying a coat of manure around each tree, fur a space of five to ten feet, according to size of trees ; and forking tit in above the roots of tbe trees their decay roust be attributed to some cause beyond tbe science of pomologists to state what it is, without being present on the pre mise# wbera the trees are grown. Sometimes severe froata will so injure tbe tree*, as t>> cause tbe bark to split open and peel off; and if your traea have been thus injured, it is probably the cause of their decay. SELECTING POULTRY MEAT —A young tur key has a smooth leg and a soft bill, and if fresb, the eye will bo bright and the feet moi.t. Old turkeys have scaly feet. Young fowls have a lender skin, smooth legs and the breast b .ne yields readily to tbe preasure of the linger. The be*t are those with yellow legs The feet and legs of old fowla look u though they had seen hard ser vice in the world. Young ducks feel tender under the wings, and the web of the foot is transparent. The best are thick and hard on the breast Young geese hate yellow bill*, ad the feet are yellow end supple. The skin maybe easily broken by the head of a pin ; the breast is plump ami the fat white. An old goose is unfit for the human stomach. Fowls are inoat easily picked if scalded,but this renders the skin liable to tie torn, and consequently they witl not look so nice. MXADOWS Now is a good time to topdress with fine manure, giting a protection to the grass roots from a burning sun, and furnish ing a stitnulous to start a good af'ermath— Millet is better for feeding, cut before ih" •eed is ripe : cut as aoon as .he seed begins to form, or before even, if you would base a aafe, good feed, after curing. FRUITLESS PLAR TREES.— It sometimes happens that pear trees are barren year after year. If the soil has been manured and cul tivated, let manure and tillage be withheld If th>s does not answer, prune back the rank wood, and cut off the extreme! ies of some of the roots with a sharp spade. Hard usage i is What such trees need. PLACE FOR THE PIU-STT.— Desirable as N is to hove a pen within ea-y leach from ihi kitchen, it ia yet a barber- us custom to haet it so near that its no'ses and offensive stnt-IL wlll penetrate the house. Wherever it is, there should be a good walk provided, tor convenience in carrying slops to it. Nor should it be too close to tha norse sub'e.— There is a foolish noti in abroad that a horse stall next to a pen is hurtful to the pigs, es pecially to the breeding sows. The only conceivable harm would be l" the horse and his master, arising from toe foul smeil of the hogs. Common sense says, let the pig sty be ar ranged on one side f the barn yard, so as to allow the pig manure to be mixed with that of the horse and c<.w, as they severally accu mulate. One apparttnent of the pen should open in to the yard, so as to allow the hogs to run out, and work orer the horse manure, and to feed on such grain as thev may tind among it Tbepigjen should, of couiae,bave its sleeping ro<>m well provided with straw and the whole establishment should he kept clean. SAVE THE CORN FODDER.— The following timely advice is from, the Ohio Former— The severe summer drought which has prevailed all over this region, causing faim rs to resort to early feeding o| lrm an-clc, *h'd admonish them ti> save all the corn fotde" before it is touched by fr st. The corn crop in many places will not ripen well, and a good thing can be made of the stock- for fo I der by cutting thein and securing in clone ahocks front the weather. In cases where the cars are likely to ripen the grain, the top si.k at d leaves can he saved by taking them < ffbef re frost C 'tnf and storing litem in an airy loft or shed where they will cure well and be safe from the weather. Well cured corn fodder is the Usi kind of feed for cows and sheep ; and there is noth ing better tor Colts than well cored corn blades, taken ■lf tie f re . Iwy ar.- fir—l by dr\ weaiher r touched by frost, aud then cured (B the shade. gflisrellaitfouf. LACK. A WESTERN R R. Summer Arrangement—l SOT. PASSENGER TRAINS LEAVE WESTWARD | EASTWARD.
