Cabbage a food Tor I logs.
A "cntleman remarked, in our hear
ing, a few days since, that cabbage was
n valuable lood iur hogs. 1 he idea
was new to us, and we inquired the
manner of feeding. In reply, he gave
the following as the result of his expe
rience, the last summer, llavim; a line
patch of plants, and observing the bot
tom leaves beginning to decay, he di
rected his farmer to procure a water
tight cask, and gather a bushel of the
, lower leaves from the cabbage plants
ud deposite them in the barrel, with a
h andful of salt, and one quart of corn
rical. On this was poured the contents
M" the kitchen swill pail, and tho whole
.vas suffered to stand undisturbed for
wenty-four hours, when tho process
vas repeated, witli the exception of the
jalt and so, every day until the cask
,vas filled with a mass bf wilted leaves,
lbout six quarts of meal, potatoc pcel
ngs, crumbs of bread, ice, from the
kitchen ; all in a state of partial fermen
tation, lie now commenced feeding it
to the hogs, and they eat with greedi
ness, leaving other food for this. They
icre evidently as fond of this kind ot
mush, as ever Mynheer" was of his
While the hogs were consuming the
ontentsof tho first barrel, a second was
n course of being filled, and so alter
lately, till the stock of leaves was ex
lausted. This gentleman gave his opinion,
hat he could not have prepared any
jthcr kind of food for Ins hogs, at Uou
ile tho cxense, that would have pro.
luccd results so decidedly beneficial
n increase of appetite, improvement
in their general nppearance, and better
heart, was tlie result of this method.
The cabbage, he thinks, were greatly
improved by plucking tho redundant
foilagc : and he intends to plant a large
patch of cabbages, the coming season,
more fully to lest advantages of this
kind of feed for hogs. We "invite him
and others who may " experiment" in
the business to give us the result for
publication. Farmers' Cabinet.
licet for Cattle
As experience and not speculation is
what farmers need, I will civc mv ob
servations in feeding beets to my cows
during tho two past winters. In 1N.'S,
I put up about 300 bushels of .Mangel
Wurtzcl beets, 100 bushels of turnips
and some potatoes for the purpose of
experimenting in feeding my cattle du
ring the winter. I knew nothing but
what I learned irom books, as 1 was
acquainted with no farmer (nor am I
yet) who fed with roots. At first I was
at a loss to know how to feed them,
whether in a raw state or cooked, but
having determined to try both plans I
commenced the work and each did
well. Young animals are peculiar v
fond of the raw beets and thrive aston
ishingly on them; but for cows that
give milk, they are better boiled, partic
ularly if a steamer can be used in the
process. Though milk cows should
have raw beets once in every two or
three days if grass cannot be had.
The turnips and potatoes were given
precisely as the beets ; but I could not
determine that cither had the pcfercuce
over tfie other, as the cows gave about
the same quantity of milk, and their
condition did not seem changed by
cither. In feeding the same animal
with beets, it was easily told that one
third less than of the turnips or pota
toes would make them give the same
quantity of milk, of better quality and
they showed better keep. The beets
made the milk better, the butter better,
and the cows look much better. On
one half bushel of beets per day to each
cow, without straw, and a little meal
or bran mixed in, they continued in
good condition, through the winter,
gave as much milk as in the summer.
and the butter was lull as good as in
May. 3Iy experience during the last
winter (lS.'W-10) while I fed on roots,
only confirmed my former conclusions.
frrat Crop of Corn.
It seems the farmers of the Southern
States ( as raise great crops of com if
they try; but generally if they secure
twenty bushels to the acre, they think it
doing well. We have before us ihe
Kentucky Farmer, published in Lex
ington of that state, under date of Ort.

bon county, Ky., gives the editor a
statement of an experiment made by
him in the cultivation of corn the pat
season, by which it appears ha raised
at the rate of more than 15S bushels
per acre! The mode of cultivation is
" In its cultivation I was governed by
the principles that the roots were not
to be broken; that a good bed was to
be given the roots to occupy ; that liijht
and heat should get to them equally,
and that the whole power of the soil
should be brought into action without
being burdened. I first, as soon as it
could be done after the frost was out of
the soil, gave it a deep p!oughinr with
a carry plough. In April, ju.-t before
planting, I spread over the whole sur
face a thin coat of fresh stable ma
nure in its unfermented state ; then
cross ploughed with the same plough;
then harrowed ; then laid oil rows two
foot apart with a shovel plough; drop
ped the seed in the bottom of these
rows, as near one toot apart as I could;
covered with hoes, and in so doing
made the surface level, everv clod be
ll)'.! crushed with the eve of the hoe,
and I then pressed the whole down tight
with a good roller. hen the corn
was about one foot high, I hail the
weeds cut with a sharp hoe by scraping
great care was taken not to break
the surlaco nor to lull the t. orn. It had
but one hoeing of this sort, and the la
borer was about one day in doin;
The manure though green from tho
stable, as the season w as wet was of
much service, which I mhthiso would
not have been the c;'.so had the season

A ok op Sukkt. The age of sheep
may be known by examining their
front teeth. They arc eight in number
and appear during the first year all of
a small size. In the second year, the
two middle ones fall out, and their place
is supplied bv two new teeth, which are
easily distinguished by being of a larger
size. In the third vcar. two Other small
teeth, one on each side, drop out and
are replaced by two large ones ; so that
there are now lour large teeth in the
middle, and two pointed ones on each
side. In the fourth year, the large teeth
are six in number, and only two small
ones remain, one at each end ol the
range. In the fifth year the remaining
small teeth are lost, and the whole front
teeth are large. In the sixth year the
whole begin to be worn ; and in the
seventh, sometimes sooner, some tall
out or arc broken.
Ijekye. If you have any that you
are fattening for sale, or for home con
sumption, you will greatly facilitate
your object by feeding four or five times
in the course of the day, and at least
once a week giving a quart of flaxseed
boiled into a jelly, and given in a iocs-
of corn meal. 1 he animals slim. Id be
