SUFFOLK AND CHESTER WHITE PIGS
Mr. Henry White, of Canada, whom we
have 1:11g known as a successful prize winner
at the Provincial Fairs, writes us that he has
tried many different breeds of pigs, including
Yorkshire, Berkshire, Byfield, Grass, Lan 1.
shark, Suffolk, and many others, but gives the
Snffolks the decided preference. They not
only mature early, but are excellent graziers.
lie says, , '1 am convinced from experience
that I can make 100 lbs. of pork, 15 per cent.
cheaper from the Suffolks than from any of the
above named breeds. Many object to the
Suffolks on account of their being small. I
slaughtered three pure bred Satfoilis the past
fall. No. 1, 3 years and 2 months old, dressed
381 lbs. lie was the winner of the First Prize
at our County Fair in 1860, 1861, and 1862.
No. 2. 18 months old, dressed 363 lbs. No. 3,
11 months old, dressed 271 lbs. Sae was the
winner of the First Prize as the best Suffolk
sow under 12 months old."
These are by no means heavy hogs. No. 2
is pretty good, but we think an eighteen months'
pig should weigh 400 lbs.
Mr. White adds ; “I think it a bad practice
to winter more hogs than are required to breed
from. I like my pigs to come about the Ist
of March, and at 9 months old I find no diffi
culty in getting them to weigh from 200 lbs. to
250 lbs "
Mr. Bela 'Dunbar, of North Chilli, writes us
in regard to the Chester White pigs, which he
has kept for some time. He says they are the
best breed of swine he ever knew. He has
been acquainted with thernsinee 1852, and has
found Clem to have all the good points desi
rable in a hog. "They are quiet, keep easily,
have a good square form, very heavy hams and
shoulders, broad on the back, shore head and
legs, and without exception always white.
They will probably make more pork in a given
length of time, with a given quantity of food,
than any other breed of hogs. They readily
fatten while young, or at any age, or will grow
to weigh from 400 lbs. to 700 lbs. at 16 to 18
months old." If there is any better breed of
hogs be would like to get some of them.—Gen
THINNING FRUIT TO INCREASE ITS
A very great proportion of the fruit that
reaches our market, is not only inferior in size
but decidedly inferior in flavor, and in many
cases almost insipid. The general impression
is, that these are natural results, and that no
effort of the cultivator will remedy them. Of
this we are not so certain. Extremely unfa
vorable seasons may affect the flavor as well
as the size of the fruit. Thus, a wet and cloudy
eeason invariably produces greatly increased
ac idity igt the small fruits, and is particularly
noticeable in the peach. But in good seasons
the flavor of fruit may readily be preserved it
the proper means are resorted to for the attain
ment of this object. A writer in the Cottage
Gardener, in a very semi \le article on this
subject, contends that a clever man can com
mand a flavor," and the method is to thin out
severely_ He assumes that if a peach or plum
tree is allowed to bring to maturity hve or sin
dozen of trait when only three dozen Should
have been permitted to ripen, the flavor will
be decidedly inferior. He cites a case in
A favorite plum tree in 1861 bore but a thin
crap of fruit, which was all preserved. Their
aroma when being made into tarts or puddings
was most delicious. In 1862 the crop of plums
on the same tree was so abundant as to hide the
leaves. The usual quantity was preserved, but
the fine aroma of those of the previous year
was wholly wanting. From all of which he
insists upon the fallowing:—"By thinning you
make indifferent fruit good. Ey crowding you
make good fruit bad.'
This thinning is terrible work for the
amateur, it is like drawing a tooth, and every
fru.t that falls to the ground creates a pang ;
bat it must be done. A small, sharp penknife
is the best implement to employ, and is much
better than tearing off the fruit with the finger
NEVER PLOW POTATOES.
This may seem strange logic, no doubt, to
many of our readers ; but if they will only
try it, I think they will find a difference in the
yield equall strange. Plowing potatoes will

they do nor grow until the autumn rains come,
and tht-y then grow so rapidly that they are
eery tender and - soon rot after being taken out
of Th., ground, if they do not before; which
is very often the cone. My m ids of planting
and cultivating potatoes is to take a piece of
corn stunbte and cover well vita barn yard
manure; then plow deep, and plant in' every
third furrow, the potatoes about ten inches
apart in the furrow; then after you have fin
ished planting, harrow down smooth and roll
with a light roller; then, when they begin to
come through the grtrund, harrow again in the
same airecnon of the rows ; then when they
reach the height of abut four inches, run the
cultivator through the rows, twice to etteh row,
After this, n-e the cultivator as often as you
think proper, takieg care to keep down all
weeds an .t grass, and if any weeds grow in the
rows that cannot be reached by the cultivator,
pall them out with the hand. Never use the
plow to cdvir them, as you form a ridge that
runs all the water from your potatoes in be
tween the rows, where it can di no good. Po
tatoes grotty up in the warm, dry months, and
ire aotaatimee have a number of small .or
showers that moistens the earth a few itieh k es
coat time. and revives vegetation very much ;
but it is only the heavy, soaking rains that
reach potatoes that are ridged up. Go into
your potato patch, after a slight shower, and
examine the potatoes that- have been ridged
up and see if they have been benefited by it
much —Jar. Dollar Newepoper.
It is a question muck discussed of late,
whether or no orchards should be plowed and
manned and *cropped. We have seen orchards,
both old and young. cultivated to their injury.
If an old orcluird is plowed deep. it is quite
sure to tear up and break the roots; and this
will be followed by blight and stunted growth.
If a young orchard is plowed carelessly, not.
only will the roots of the trees be 'Oared. but
the bark will be bruised by the whiffietrees,
and the trees theme-tree be gnawe• and tram
pled on by the horses. An old orchard can be
plowed shallow. and little harm come from it ;
but, es a general rule, the plow should be kept
outside of its boundaries. If the land needs
enriching and re-seeding, scarify the surface
with a harrow, and give a dressing of old ma
nure, scattering the seed where it is wanted
A young orchard not only can be plowed
safely; b.it it absolutely requires cultivation.
One might about as well throw his young trees
into the etrem at first, as to set them out in a
tough meat& and let them so remain_ Perhaps
most of them will mileage to live, but they
cannot thrive. Plow the land property, m a .
