FRIDAY DECEMBER , 4.
We wish to call the attention of
our farming readers to "How Crops
Grow," a new book published by
Professor Johnson of Yale College,
in which he gives some of the results
of his reading and study in the prep
aration of a course of lectures in Ag
While there is a part of the book
which has special value for such - as
have some knowledge of chemical
analysis, yet there is_ a larger part
which would be valuable and interest
ing for reading and study in any in
telligent farmer's family. Our au
thor explains ,the structure of the
several parts of a plant and :their
uses and also states clearly the .cir
cumstances which affect, favorably
or otherwise, the sprouting and
growth from the seed. The young
er members of the family will find
here enough of botany to interest
them in observing both the structure.
and the growth of plants. For ex
ample, in almost any family some
one would have his curiosity aroused
by the statement that the germ in ,a
seed, "ist, in fac, a ready-formed
plant in miniature, and has its root,
stem, leaves and a bud;" a and he
would then wish to soak a grain of
corn that he might examine the soft
ened germ or "chits"—using perhaps
his mother's needle as a dissecting
instrument—and find for himselfthe
little root and stalk bf the future
plan. Very likely the boy-may spoil
a few onions and potatoes in settling
for himself a question about the dif
creme between bulbs and tubers ;
but the father will do well to encour
age his son in such inquiries, and,
while he looks through the book for
his boy's satisfaction, he may learn
facts of great value to himself With
reference to the growth of seeds, the
age of which seed of different crops
may safely be sowed, whether light
or heavy seed should be used,
Let us here call attention to one
statement, viz. : that clover hay may
have more titan one•t.hird of its ash
ingredients (and probably at least as
large a part of its other solid matter)
washed out of it by exposure to rain.
This is mentioned as a single fact
the knowledge of which might save
to a farmer enough to e enable him to
buy a good farmer's library.
The scientific matter seems to be
brought up to the latest dates, inclu
ding 1867. We noticed one instance
in which his information did not
seem to be so recent. Speaking of
the tillering or "stooling out" of
wheat, he cites the experiments of
Irallet, in England, with his "pedi
gre wheat" and says on thiir author
ity that "a stool produced from a
single kernel of winter wheat, having
perfect freedom of growth, has been
known to carry 50 or 60 . grain-bea
ring cultns." As we do not have the
book from:which Professor Johnson
quotes (jothikal of Royal Society, of
England, vol. 22) we cannot learn
the date of the experiments to which
he refers but the fact is that in 1861
Millet produced eighty-four ears,
from one grain, and eighty from an
other, and in 1865 the best grain pro
duced ninety heads. Johnson also
says that some ears were 81- inches
long with 156 large kernels, whereas
in 1862 Mallet's last ear of wheat
measured 9 inches and the best ears
in both 1861 Sr; '62 had 132 grains
Having given this, the only in
stance noticed in which the facts do
not seem to be recent as well as clear
ly stated, we heartily commend the
book as worth to any thoughtfill.

PLOUGHING UP RAW SOIL
We sometimes hear farmers re
mark that, ploughing deep, they get
less grain; that, bringing up the
new mellow soil, their crops suffer.
It would be very strange if th's was
not the case; for this soil even if ever
so mellow, is raw, just like manure
when it is "green" or" long." It is
not yet converted or changed into
plant-food. It needs just what the
Ion!): manure needs—to be changed
by the heat and air—that is decom
posed or rotted.
When the top-soil is less fertile
than . it used to be when the land
was first tiled, you may rest assured
that this under soil is alWays better
than the upper soil, because the up
per has deteriorated, while the under
has not, but rather improved.
It is therefore, inadvisable, nay
suicidal in some soils, to turn up
deeply the underground in the spring
or in the fall at sowing time The
cold, cheerless ground will help the
grain, and were it not for the other
soil mixed with it, an almost total
failure would be the result.
But turn it up in the fall, and let
the frost and the elements take hold
of it, and you have another soil ; it
is turned into manure, a good part
of it. A little lime mixed with it,
scattered and harrowed in or manu
re,- oil both, would facilitate tte pro
cess. In the spring sow, either with
or without another ploughing, and
you will find no . more occasion
to complain. We have great fertili
ty to draw upon from below, but it
requires manageing.—Evening Post.
FALL FEED FOR COWS
It's of no use to think of keeing
. the quantity and quality of our
butter, if we neglect the fall feeding
of our cows. When the grass has
been bitten by the frost several times,
it loses its sweetness and its sub
stance. There may be enough in
bulk, but the animals do not like it
as well, and it does not make as much
milk or fatness. The pasture feed
must be gragually supplemented by
fodder. And we can well afford to
go to the trouble and expense of it,
for butter sells at very .remunerative
prices. Corn stalks not yet dry will
generally be eaten up clean, and a
few thrown out morning and night
are not only relished ; but have a di
rect and marked effect on the milk
product. Sweet apples especially, fed
in reasonable quantities, are good ;
but do not let the cows have the
run of the orchard. Pumpkins are
first-rate, a few ab a time, twice *.a
day, with all the seeds removed. Cab
bage leaves beet, and turnip and
carrot tops, and such like garden
refuses, are excellent. A little dry
hay may also be given to advantage,
feeding out only what will be eaten
up clean. A few pints of bran or
corn meal, or a few ears of soft corn
or some oil meal, may be fed daily.
Yet the change from simple pastur
age to this extra feed should be made
gradually. All acknowledge the
portance of this carefulness in spring,
when passing from dry feed to grass.
There should be similar care exercise
in the fall, or the yield of milk will
fall off. Cows or sheep that are in
good flesh, not to say fat, at the be
ginning of cold weather are half win-
tered. Just now it is that feed tells
best. The fresh bracing air gives an
appetite; the annoyance of heat and
flies does not wear off the flesh ; ani
mals can feed all day and sleep all
night, and the weather is lot cold
enough to make it necessary to con
sume much of the food or of the fat,
to keep up the animal heat.—Amer
FORKING BARNYARD MAN
This is essential to rotting well.
When corn stalks, straw and man
ure of animals are all trod down
firmly during the winter and spring,
the air is effectually excluded, and
the material will not rot until it has
been forked Over, were it to remain
there for a year or more. If it is
loosened up so that the air can cir
culate among it,the entire mass will
decay in a few weeks so that it will
be easy to pitch and spread it. Now
the most expeditions manner of
pitching manure up clean from the
bottom is to do the greatest portion
of it with a strong horse fork, Set
up-three long poles as for pitching
hay on a round stack, and make a
hole down to the bottom of the man
ure first; then thrust the tine of the
horse fork under the manure and
turn it up in large rolls, and tear it
to pieces with hand forks. Horse fork
are of great service when the man
ure is very long. After it has rotted,
a man or two men can pitch much
filter by hand. If barnyard manure
remains in the yard all summer, it
should always be forked over, to fac
ilitate the decay of corn stalks and
coarse straw. But it should always
he protected from rain. Some farm
ers pitch long manure on the wagon
with horse forks. But I never per
cive that the practice would pay,
because a horse fork will not - hold
as much as a horse is capable of ele
vating. It is easy for any to try the
experiment which will soon satisfy
all anticipation or doubts on this sub
ject.—Yorth British Agriculturist.
THE FOOT OF A HORSE.
The Auburn News, of recent date
contained a communication. from R..
C. Fargason, on mechanism of the
foot of the horse, He says : "The
external covering of the foot is divi
ded into four parts, namely :—the
wall, bars, sole and frog. The ex,
ternal or wall servee to defend the
sensitive tissues within the wall or
hoof and is composed of small fila
ments or hollow tubes, consolidated
in such a manner as to preserve the
canals distinct. These canals con
stitute the excrementions outlets of
the hoof, from which morbid materi
als find an outlet, and in these are
fOund vessels by which horn is se
creted or produced. The bars are a
continuation of the external wall just
described ; they form an angle at
the heels, which terminates towards
the toe ; they thus serve to give
strength'and durability to the hoof,
and also to prevent contraction at
When these bars are cut away or
demolished by means of the buttress
then the foot often goes to rack and
ruin. The sole is much more elastic
than the crust, and is a medium of
the sensitive faculty, through which,
together with its power of elasticity
the percussion of the foot against the
ground is regulated. The frog is
much more elastic than either of the
parts. just described, and any unnec
essary paring thereof is a monstrous
evil. On the internal posterior of
the above named parts we find a
set of beautiful leaves, resemb
ling those found in the under surface
of a mushroom. Their number is
five hundred. These articulate with
a like number given off from the sen
sitive tissues of the foot proper, each
leaf havingtwo sides and an edge,
and form a series of articulations
numbering three thousand. The
whole surface of these articulations
measures four square feet, hence the
horse having four feet, his body
rests on sixteen square feet of sur
time% all contained within his hoofs."

cations of a felon appear, take a pieta

until it becomes soft; then apply it

wood that has to spend half its ' heht
in drying out. Have the wood-shed
handy to the house, or what is bet
ter, a part of it, at least joined to
the kitchen, that in stormy weather
there will be no more need of going
out of doors whenever a little is
wanted, which goes a little against
the grain on some days that are to be
seen some winters, especially when
the feeding has been finished and
you have sitten down to read the pa

some wood out of the snow ; and
then the task • of housewife is still
harder ; the ice in it melts and

a dinner got on such a fire is not
