GREASING WAGONS.— But few people are
•ware that they do wagons and carriages
more injury by greasing too plentifully than
In any other way. A well made wheel will
endure common wear from ten totwenty-five
years, if care is taken to use the right kind
and proper amount of grease ; but if this is
not attended to, they will be used up in five
or six years. Lard should never be used on
a wagon, for it will penetrate the hub aud
work its way out around the tenons of the
•pokes,tDd spoil the wheel. Tallow is the
best lubricator for wood axletrees,and castor
oil for iron.
Just enough grease should be applied to
the spindle of the wagon to give it a light
coating ; this is better than more, for the
surplus put on will work out at the ends,and
be forced by the shoulder-bands and nut
washers into the hub around the outside of
To oil an axletree, first wipe the spindle
clean with a eloth wet with spirits of turpen
tine, and then apply a few drops of castor
oil near the shoulder and end. One tea
spoonful is sufficient for tba whole— Ohio
PLASTER. —A correspondent of the Plough
•man having asked to be informed of the
most proper season of the year for the appli
cation of plaster to pasture lands for renova
tion ; also, the best method of applying the
same, the quantity per acre necessary Lr a
fair trial, and the quality of land to which
it is best adapted—the editor replies as fol
"We think the early spring the best sea
son, say the latter part of March or early in
April. We would sow it broadcast at the
rate of about two hundred pounds to the
acre. Hilly pastures with a northern as
pect and a moist mossy soil, are most benefit
ed by its application. On granite soil or soils
throughout the gneiss formation which usu
ally contain more or less potash, plaster
works promptly and effectively. But on loca
tions where it has not been found to work
well, it should be applied in connection with
"Where plaster has any perceptible efTcct
at all, it brings in a luxuriant giowth of
white clover and otherwise improves the
grasses. Many farmers apply it regularly
once in two years, and find it the cheapest
and most economical dressing they can ap
ply. It ought to be fresh ground. The
dark variety 13 thought to be the strongest
DAIRYING AND WHEAT GROWING.—At a
recent meeting of the Hetkimer County
(New York) Farmers' Club the comparative
profit of dairying and wheat growing was
discussed. The points made by Charles Van
Valkinburgb, of Herkimer, we condense
from the Utica Herald. In his opinion the
rapid development of the factory system of
cheese-making, in all sec'ions of the country,
tended to low prices, while the value of cows
would remain about the same. These rela
tions would render dairying comparatively
unprofitable and compel faimer3 to diversify
their products—enabling them to raise their
own dairy stock instead of going abroad to
purchase it. In his opinion good wheat co'd
now bo raised in that section, and at a better
profit at present prices of flour, than the
dairy afforded. Several instances of fine
yields of wheat the past season, were men
tioned. In one.sixty-seven bushels of wheat
were raised from two acres, and four bushels
of sowing. Meadows should be broken up
in sections, once in eight years, and wheat
made one of the crops in rotation—corn be
ing the first in ths series—followed withoats
or barley, then wheat and back to grass
again To reuder this sub division of mead
ow land easy, movable or portable fences
should be used—a section of which he ex
hibited, costing 6evenly-seven cents per
KEEPING CALVES.—A calf kept, in winter
ami summer, in thrifty growth, at two years
old, will make as much, and more beef, than
one neglectfully kept at twice tbat age. The
profit will be found on the side of the two
year old, and the loss on the bur years old ;
yet the owner of the latter has pursued this
system if system it may be called, with the
idea that he was saving money. Keep the
thrifty animal two years longer in the same
way and something very handsome in the
way of beef will be the result—while the
starveling can never pay the expense of its
rearing and feeding.
EARLY TOMATOES. —To have tomatoes early,
plant a few seeds, any time this month, in
the pets in which the plants are growing in
the kitchen window. They will so germi
nate and grow very rapidly, and when the
plaßts are two or three inches high, set one
of each in boxes three inches square, or very
small flower pots, and give them the same
attention the hou-e plants receive. As soon
as all danger from frosts is over, transfet the
tomato plants whic i will then be budded and
perhaps covered with miniature fruit, to the
smooth side of a high fence or sunny side <>! a
building, into not over rich soil, and you will
have ripe tomatoes on the fourth o( July, it
past experience and a favorable season are
worth anything. Try it.
LIME DLST lOK PLUM TREES.— It i said
that pulverized, unleached I.me shaken over
pluin trees, from the time when fruit has
'■aet" until after the curculio suspends oper
ations, will insult* a good crop of fruit. The
operations should be performed when the
dew is on, or the good effects will be lost.
POTATO CASES.— To a scant half peck of
potatoes grated, add two eggs, salt, thicken
with a little fl ur, and fry in a spider, or
bake. Boiled grated potatoes may be used,
trut are not qtuta so nice.
