Farmers, and Agricultural men generally,
are requested to contribute to this Department, as it
is from their experience that we hepe to gain some
thing of interest for our readers.
To purchase trees, take them exposed to
sun and winds, throw them over the garden
fence until morning ; then distribute them
over the field where they are to be set, leav
ing some to dry, while others are being
throwu into holes not a foot square, with
not a root or branch trimmed,and the stones
and coarse dirt all shoveled in together ;
and then, after allowing them sufficient time
to wither and die, satisfy the longings of your
soul by abusing, or, if you are in the habit,
of cursing en masse all tree dealers, nursery
men, and horticulturists.
To cultivate more land tjian you can pro*
perly drain, subsoil, and manure.
To have a largo orchard with every other
tree dead from borers and your own shiftless
cultivation of it.
To set out an orchard, and torn cattle in
to prune it. r
To buy poor trees, because they are cheap.
To be so eminently selfish that you will
not set out trees, because your life is not in
sured to last as long as theirs.
To be so afraid of lending your influence to
book farming that you will read nothing of
what is going on in the agricultural world,
thus depriving > ourself of much useful and
CCTTIXG TIMBER. -Cut the timber from
September to December, and you cannot get
a worm into it. October and November are
perhaps the best months, and are sure to
avoid worms. You cut Irom March tc June
and you cannot save the timber from worms
or borers. May used to he called '"peeling
time," in my boyhood ; and much was then
done in procuring bark for tanneries, when
the sap is up in the trunk and all the pores
are full of sap ; whereas in the Fall and early
in the Winter these pores are empty—then
is the time to cut,and there will be no worms
When you see ail ox-bow with the bark
tight, there are no worms, no powder post,
and you cannot sc|>erate it from the wood
and what is true of one kind is true of all
kinds of timber, and every kind has its pe
culiar kind of worrna. The pine has, I believe
the largest worms ; and theso worms w >rk
many years ; have found them ahve and at
work in white oak spokes that I knew wen*
in my garret over twelve jeAis,and they were
much larger than at first ; they did not stop
in the sap, and continued in the solid pari.—
I do not think of buying limber unless it is
cut in the time above alluded.
LIME ABOUND APPLE TREES.— We have
known farmers to make it a regular practice
for a succession of years, to throw caustic
limearouni their apple trees in the spring
and summer. We once noticed that* tree
standing m the immediate vicinity jf our
dwelling had, ail at once, pu" forth with re
newed energy, and we were at a Jqss for
some time to define the cause. On examina
tion, wo found that a quantity of lime, which
had accidently been spilled and rendered
worthless by becoming mixed with the re
fuse of tlie stable floor, had been thrown at
the fopt and arouud the tree, and to this, as
the principal cause, we immediately accredit
ed it and purchased twelve casks of lime, and
applied half a bushel to each of the trees in
our orchard, and found that it produced im
mediately beneficial edicts. Not the health
of the trees only, but the quality of the fruit
also, was greatly improved. This application
will be especially bi nefic-al in spib> wheie
there is a redundancy of vegetable matter.—
We would advise our farmers, in some
places, especially in new forest lands,to make
the experiment, and see if it is not deserving
of the high recommendation it secures.
CUTTING cp BEEF.— In cutting op beef for
salting, regard should be had to the size of
the pieces and their relation to each other
when put down. In other words a family
resemblance should he pursued in the differ
ent strata, as placed in the barrel. When
designed for family use it will be found con
venient to cut into pieces suited to a day's
consumption, F>r preserving meat the N. E
Farmer says: Pack the pieces in casks, giv
ing a slight sprinkling ol salt between each
piece ; cover with a pickle by boiln g togeth
er, in four gallons of watei, eight pounds ot
salt, three pounds of brown sugar, three
ounces of saltpetre, one ounce pearl ash, for
one hundred pounds of meat. Keep a flat
6toue on the meat, that it may be immersed
in the pickle. Pu: down in this way beef
may keep a year, and rather improve by age.
EFFICACT OF ONIONS.— A writer says:
"We are often troubled with severe cough*,
the result of colls long siandiug, wtrch uia>
turn to consumption or premature death.—
Hard coughs cause sleepless nights by con
stant irritatinn in the throat, and a stmrg
effort to throw off t ffen.-ivu matur from
the lungs. The remedy I propose has been
tried by me and often recommended to oth
ers with good results, which is simply to take
into the stomach before retiring for the night
a piece of raw onion, af'er chewing. Ttie es
culent in an uncooked state, is very heating,
and tends to collect the waters from the lungs
and thmat causing immediate relief to the
patient. Sliced onion, in a raw state, will
collect poison from the air, and also from the
human system when taken internafiy, or ex
ternally applied to ibe arm pits."
CORN MCAL PUDDING WITHOUT EGGS
Take seven heaping iabl<.*p<>oii*ful of meal
& salt spoonful of salt, a table spoonful of but
ter, one teacupful of molasses, tablespoon
ful of ginger, ftod mix with a quart of boiling
milk. When thoroughly mixed, pour into •
buttered pan, and just as you set m the oven
stir in a cup of co'il water, wiiich will have
the same effect aa egga. Bake one hour.
