bare frequently urged early cutting,
not only because the hay was better and
.more nutricious ; but also because sucli
early cutting shred the .life :of the plant,
as evidence by the green meadows follow
ing; while, if deterred to 'a time when the
see ds were lorined, We rarely had any
aftermath. In corroboration of this, we
have now, in the Vemont agricultural re-'
port, an account of , the practice of Mr.
Amaro Scott, a merchant of Oraitsbury,
in that State, who for seyeral years, has
been in the - habit of having his grass,,eut
and in the barn before any.heads appear . ;
"his theory being that if the grass is 'cut
before the seed-stalk 'commences to 'shoot
upward, the same stalk that. is cut off
will continue to grow instead of starting
a new shoot from the root, as is the case
where the , cutting, is, delayed until the
seed-stalk is partially or fully developed.
He thus secures an.. earlier ,growth for
the succeeding crop." His small farm
is in thelighest condition, and produces
in favorable seasons three crops. SPales
arc kept on the . place, and in conducting
his experiments he weighs his crops, etc.
In favorable seasons haa cut as high
as 'five' tons per acre at th# three cuttings
25 pounds of which ,by aptual experiment
was the amount per day required to keep
a large cow in the highest condition and
20 pounds per day, fed to fir of yearl
ing steers, without any ,athei. food, pro
duced an average growth of over = three
pounds per day-during the entire Winter.
In the production of milk and butter;
Mr.. Scott's experiments, here detailed,
show this early cut palm to - be greatly
superior to ordinary hay, as it is also in
feeding young steers for the market. , A
pair of steers sold at the age of 25 months
weigheded 2,610 pounds, and dressed
I,soo,pound. _Another , pair, half• Short-.
horn blood; at 231 months old, weighed
2,730 pounds, . and had made a gain
during the preceeding 12 months of no
less than 100 pounds per month, and an
average growth 'from. birth of 110 pounds
per month. AU these cattle were raised '
on skim milk, with bay tea and dried
grass; no grain of any. kind or roots
were fed to any of them,, except the last
fair for a - while before they were sold.
The feeder, being short of the dried grass,
were 'compelled to feed common-hay, and,
to keep his cattle from growing ;poor, was
obliged to feed potatoes and meal, but he
says that during this _very period his cat
tle made the slowest growth.,
The experiments and the deductions
of Mr. Scott are. certainly worth the at»
tention of intelligent farmers. Two facts
baying an immediate bearing, upon the
subject, and strongly oorroboratrie of
these - deductions, must be regarded-as an- ::
questionable, to wit': Fret, that green
grass will fatten stock and =kettle best
of beef and mutton ; while the' best of
hay, as generally' cat and cured, does not
as a general rule • when -fed in the moat
liberal quantities, keep stock from run
ning down in condition, during the-Win
ter. The other fact is, that while' as a
general thing, our meadows show a dimin
ished production from year to year, even
on good laude, on the ; same lands the
pastures, under proper management, are
found to improve- with age. - The &et
fact tends to prove that our baps not cat
early enough to preserve the highest nu
tritiye value of the grass 1 .. and the sec
ond fact tends to prove that allowing the
grass to mature before :cutting injurious
ly affects the future life of the plant. It
seems to us that curing grass cat so ear
ly may be attended with difficulty 3; but,
Mr. Scott says, he generally gets it into
cock the first day, and into the barn the
second, with ' favorable - weather. At all
events, we regard these experiments as
worthy of being repeated by ofir farmera ;,
and whatever may b_the final conclusion,
we are satisfied Malt will be found that
we must cut earlier.—Nalional Live
July gives u thexesults the_marvel
one growth in June of grass, grain and
garden crops, and continues that growth
In these and other crops. 'From the first
starting of the - plants we have watched
their mysterious groWth and development.
All through the spring -time we have felt
the strange influence of vigorous nature
at werk in us too. We planted and. till
ed the growing pliiiits, and wondered at
the time in thed.ry seeds, and its beauti-
Jul and wonderful :Manifestation under
the influence of moisture,air and warmth.
Now, in the hurry of th just begun har
vest,we ruthlessly pull the plants from the
loiiror cut them close to the earth, _with
out a thought' of whether we are taking
life, whether these Jiving, beautiful plants
have feeling, or: are - as aticks.and stones,
Practically, this, harvest season is the
gatheritg in of the fruits of Our labors.
These maturint and matured crops
would not have reached - their present

Making Maple Sugar.
A' little warm breeze crept through
Farm.er Cheery's maple forest, awoke the
trees from their long,.long sleep, and they
all began to shake hands and nod, toward
each other, whispering : '"Good ! Good !
Here comes the Spring l'"
Soon the - warn air 'made them feel
thirsty and faint;, the tiny twigs com
plained to the- branches , the 'branches
told the trunks, and - the trunks carried
the news doWn to the roots. Maple-trees
keep all their .Provisions in an under
ground cellar ; so•the roots. finding that
sure enough, the 'ground was do longer
frotien and hard, began to feel about, and
send - out little-rootlets that- gathered, up
the good things, just .'the kinds they
knew maple twigs loved best. Does n't
it Seem funny that they can tell ? The
maples take one kind of food, the pines
-another,the birches another, and for each
the roottets pick out just the-right kind
from the same -ground. As fast : as the
rootlets gathered. the food,they sent Wig)
the branches—a very delipatesweet drink;
and still they sent more and more, the
little twigs -always takink the freshest,
and sending- back what was left over.
The branehefifelt very much revived as
they, were fed, grew very sociaY and
began to. tell of the pretty red dresses
they would put on before long ; red for
the cool spfing days, and afterward green
for hot summer.: The were merry plan
ning their new wardrobes, I assure you.;.
you could have heard it if you had had
theright kind 'of ears.
Farmer Cheery came in from his barn
chores. . '
"I say, wife, it's groWing warm !
Should n't Wonder if the 'sap would run
Such weather as this l. peas I must tap,
one, tree and see."
So farmer Cheery took his auger and
went out' into the maple orchard. It
did n't take, himi‘rig to make a little
hole in one of the ree-trunks; and put
in ,a little spout ; nor'lvas it many min
utes before drop after drop came the sap.
"Ah l that's•fine I" said farmer Cheery
and he went home in baste. The next we
saw of him he was driving out into the
orcherd with a load of one hundred and
fifty clean, bright, tin sap-buckets and
one hundred and fifty fresh little troughs.
Then. In each one of - his hundred and
fifty maple-trees be bored a hole and put
a trdugh and a bucket beneath to catch
th4.,sap as it came dropping out.
"Did n't it starve- the poor little
branches waiting for their food ?"
Oh, no ! There was enough for them
leit,—all they needed to keep tnem very
fresh and make them grow. So - many,
many pailfuls ran up and down every
day, that the one Farmer Cheery took
would hardly be - missed.
Every morning and, night for two or
three weeks, the good farmer might be
seen with his great tank, clean - as clean
could be, driving around to collect the
sap thaChati run out. He knew that one
reason why maple sugar is sometimes
dark-colored is because the :pails and
tanks that hold the sap are not washed
thoroughly, ; so he took great pains with
his. H knew, too, that if any water
gets in, the sap must be boiled longer to
make sugar of it, and the longer it is
boiled the - darker it grows ; so, if he saw
Aitorm coming, he collected all the sap,
and turned the buckets upside down till
the rain was over:
Farmer s Cheery <had a great iron, pan,
which would hold,—oh, I don't dare tell
you bow ,rnany pailfuls,—a great, great
many ; and -this very large pan rested on
some stone posts about two feet from the
ground. Under this he built a fire, and
into, it he podied his sap, stirring it while
it boiled almost all day long. When,he
drew it off, such beautiful clear syrup I
don't believe you ever saw. This he did
'two or three] times. each week for nearly
a month ; after that, the sap was not as
good for people to use, though just what
;the little twigs needed. as they grew old
Some of his syrup the farmer puts up
in cans to send, to the cities, some of it
he boiled more and more,
so that it would
'be sugar when cooled. Then he pdured
it into pretty scolloped hrderf
into the round cakes you. like so much ;
and some of it his little ,grandchildren
waxed on snow. .
Yon doiet know boli that is ?-
Weil, May packed a panful of snow,
just as bard as she could crowded it in ;
then she smoothed off the top as as
a marble table, and- she and Sally'
crrried it to Grandpa Cheery, who drop
ped upon their snow a spoonful of hot
syrup here and ;there. The - little thin,
waxy sheets of 'suddenly cooled syrup,
picked up with a fork, and eaten as soon
as cool, made . an exbellent. luncheon ;
and: the children tugged their pan of snow
around to give every one a taste, declar
ing that "Eager-season" was .the very
best time in the year.

j3caExales BEA WORD,
In the atmosphere eiPerience hero during
the summer months, the lethargy 'produced by
the heat takes away the desire, for wholesome
food, and frequent perspirations reduce bodily
energy, particularly those suffering from the
effeeta of debilitating diseases. In • order to
keep a natural healthful activity of the system
we must 'resort to artificial"means, For this
purpose Schenck's Sea Weed Tonic is very ef-,
fectual. A few= doses -will create an appetite ,
and give fresh vigor -to .the enervated body.
For dyspepsia, it is invaluable. Many eminent
physicians have doubted whether dyspepsia
can be permanently cured by, the drugs which
are generally, employnd for that purpose. The
S i te Weed Tonic in its nature is totally di ff er , .
e from such drugs. It contains no corrosive ,
miiierals or acids; in fact it assists the regular
operations of nature, and supplie.s her detici
ciences. The tonic in its 8.45 Much res
emble the gastric juice that it is almost inden-
Veal with that fluid. The gastric juice is the
natural solvent.which. in a healthy conditiori
of the body, causes the.tood to be digested;" and
when this juice is -not excreted in sufficient
quantities, indigestion, with - all its distressing
symptoms, follow. The Sea Weed Tonic perr--
forms the duty of the gastric juice when the
latter is deficient. Schenck's Sea Weed Tonic
