FACTS FOR FARMERS
There are some things that farmers should
know, which. it practiced upon, will result
ill good, oiz :
They should know that it is an error to
plant trees from a State limiter south than
their own.—ln a cold season only the seeds
from a colder climate will ripen well.
Often* breaking up a surface keeps a soil
in heath; for when it lies in a hard bound
state, enriching showers run off, and the
salnbrious sir cannot enter.

starve them they will in turn start you.
It - *•ilt not do to hoe a great field for a
little crop, or to mow twenty acres for five
triads of hay. Enrich the-land and it will
pay you for it. Butter farm thirty acres
well than fifty acres poorly. ' '
In dry pasture dig water on the brow of
L' hill ; springs are more frequently near
the surface on a height than in a vale.
Rain is cash to a farmer, provided he
has land in order to drink up its riches.

Never plowin' bad weather, or when
the ground is very wet, because tt makes
the surface rough.
Accounts should be kept, detailing the
expenees and products of each field.
When an implement is no longer want
ed fur the season, lay it carefully aside,
hut first let it be welt cleaned, and a coat
of paint would not hurt it.
Obtain good seed, prepare your ground
well, sow early, and pay no attention to
Cultivate your own heart aright; re
member that whatsoever a man soweth,
that shall lie reap.
Do not begin farming by building an
extensive house, nor a capacious barn, till
you have something to store in it.
Avoid a low and damp sight for a dwel

barn and stock yard to avoid accidents by

Experiments are highly commendible,
but do not become an habitual experi
The depredations of birds are fully com
pensated by the services they render in
preying upon destructive insects.
Sheep put into fresh stables are apt to
be killed by eating too much grain.
A. hare pasture neither enriches the soil,
fattens the animals, nor increases the wealth
of the owner. One animal well fed is of
more value than two poorly kept. The
better animals can be fed, and the more
comfortable they can be kept, the more
profitable they are.
SOW clover deep—it secures it against
Ground once well plowed is better than
Bountiful crops are more profitable than
poor ones. Make the soil rich, pulverize
it well. and keep it clean, and it generally
will be productive.
Weeds that grow unmolested around the
fences, stumps, 'and stones, scatter their
seeds over the farm, and are very likely to
