Now is the time tc se' atr.ut planting the*e

select a sheltered nook, il pnstib s, as they
are in flower so early, that in 'hi< latfad<*
they are apt to get injured by tht-erdd win ;§•

then come the Tlyacititha. then the gaudy
tulif s. Besides these there are a-, vera! oth
er sorts, the c mmon Daffodil being well
known. There are *e?vra! pretty varieties of
the Narcissus and a few eh' u!<j away- be se

A stately plant is the Crown Imperial,

The C'.mmon Fntielarv, has singularly
marked flowers, is quite hardy and attrac
The feathered Hyacinths are quite neat
and pretty, the common grape Hyacinth be
ing of this family ; they too are hardy. The
Jonquils are similar to t'e S*rci--u.
Before planting, spade op toe soi! anl

So also is it in his working cattle and h;

is the cause of health, strength and comfort

PUTTING DOWN BUTTER. -In putting down
butter,there should be an effort at uniformity
• throughout the operation. This i* not hard
of attainment, hence a failure should not be
imputed to bad lock, but to negligent disre
gard of the conditions of success. Work th<
butter clear ol the milk to begin with. See
that no ba'rs or n.reads meander through it,
In salting, if in doubt as to the quantity to
be u*ed, prepare a pound, >r ie-s, by trial.tilt
the proper quantity ha* been a-cerilined
When the taste i* **"fi"d, observe h-* *m.
proportions in successive churning* till the
tub or crock is filled. Jlia result will l>e a
mass of uniform character, free from vein* of
milk or ufidis-olvetl salt, ol hairs i r strings,
and fit to be eaten with the eyes open and
the sense" of tas'e and smell active in the
performance of their allotted function*.
GOOD FEEDING.— Feed liberally. Feed at
regular times. There is no profit inp>raoi
mals of any description. 1 hey eat ui"r and
fare worse than animals hbeially fed,and tiny
return less profit. See that the fond i- clean
and pa'atahle. The hen* on the hav-m-.w
and the dirty feet of men and children running
over hay and green c<>mfodd< ron the bam
floor, do not improve it or render ti nv>re
palatable to a cow of nice taste, and if she
seems dainty,under such circumstance*,blame
yourself and not her. The waste and want
of economy in some barns from these and
other causes is of'en enormous. A really
good and judicious feeder of stock is rare—
Feeding is an art to be acquired by the moot
careful experience and observation, and few
attain proficiency in it.
