Within a few j ears past the problem
of increasing the yield of corn by im
proved methods of cultivation, has
been warmly difcussed, and, no doubt,
with benefit to tbe farmers of the land.
The average farmer will not raise one
hundred bushels of shelled corn per
acre, but the successful efforts will, at
least, induce him to strive to increase
his yield It would be well if a great
more thought and investigation were
(riven to increasing the yield of pota
Tbe exports of breadstuff's from the ;
United States for the fiscal year ended j
with June 30th reached the enormous j
total of $277,220,762, the largest
amount for any one year in the his
tory of tbe country. This places bread-1
stuff in the front rank of our export j
trade, for in no other line of products ;
does the total reach these figures, and
the only approach to them is found in
cotton and provisions.
The Farm and Fireside speaks with
just severity of the way blacksmiths
hack off the frog of tbe horse's foot, as
though nature had made a mistake in
putting it there. "We know," it says,
"what an elephant's foot is; it is all ■
rubber-like. The horse has the same
encased in a shell, which gives him
accurancy and steadiness of movement.
Now, this casing protects the frog.
It grows slowly, the frog grows rap
idly. The healthy foot of the colt
shows a centre, if not projecting, at
least level with tbe line of the hoof.
He does not take his weight wholly
on the rim of his feet. Old horses
would have feet more like them if
blacksmiths would allow they knew a
little less than nature, and really knew
enough to read her intentions."
A correspondent of the Chicago
Times relates some remarkable ex
periences with the use of salt in bis
garden and orchard. In 1877, be says
his wife had a garden forty feet square
which it was necessary to water every
day, and still the plants and flowers
were very inferior. The next year be
put half a barrel of brine and half a
barrel of Bait on the ground and tamed
it under. That season watering could
be dispensed with, and the plants were
of unusual size and the flowers of
great beauty. He also had some po
tatoes growing from seed that wilted
down as soon as the weather became
very hot. He applied salt to the sur
face of tbe soil till it was white. The
vines took a vigorous start, grew to
the length of three feet, blossomed and
produced tubers from the size of hen's
eggs to that of goose eggs. His soil is
The high prices that ruled for wheat
during the past season, led farmers
through the Northwest to sell, as a
rule, all they could possibly spare,
while the same cause seems to have
deterred millers from laying in a heavy
supply. Accordingly the latter
through almost that entire section ap
pear to be short of "bard," or "Min
nesota" Spring wheat, so that it is re
ported that of the 204,730 bushels of
the variety lately in storage in Chi
cago, 60,000 are to be sent by water
to Milwaukee, and 100,000 by rail to
points in the interior as far off as Min
neapolis. In the absence of a sufficient
supply of "hard," it is doubtful whether
the mills will decide to take what is
known as "soft"' Spring wheat, or shut
down until the new harvest is in the
market The new wheat in that re
gion will hardly be ready for grinding
before about the middle of September ;
for after it has ripened and been har
vested it will require some time until
it is dried enough for millers' use.
Success in butter-making depends
largely on tbe prompt cleaning of the
dairy utensils. Every utensil, after
being used, must be cleansed immedi
ately in order to prevent taints in the
milk, cream or butter.
On the 15th of July thirty Norman
horses, all sound and healthy, and in
fine condition, arrived in Boston by
the steamer Anglia. The lot consisted
of twenty-two stallions and eight
mares, and the importation is regarded
as the most valuable assortment of
Norman horses ever brought to this
A correspondent of the Ohio Far- \
mer, who strongly urges the growing
of turnips for stockfeeding, says that
with turnips fed tops and all to sheep,
with a small additional quantity of
grain, either oats or corn, the amount
of hay required for a flock of sheep
will be very small. Cattle also eat
them with great relish.
Ohio in 1879 bad 9,150,000 sheep,
and a dog interest assessed at $373,-
624. These dogs last year killed 47,-
626 sheep, valued at $102,444. In
1871 the value of pheep killed by dogs
in that State was $200,000. From
this it appears the Ohio dogs destroy
their value in sheep in a period of less
than two and a half years.
Skimmed cheese, says an exchange,
has received the black eye it has long
deserved. Illinois creamery skims are
selling in New York at from three to
five cents a pound, which is about half
what whole milk cheese is worth.
The practice of the creameries of taking
off all the cream they can get, and then
making up a cheese from the remain
der, has had its day The practical
fall stock, with just as little as possible
taken off the night's milk, is the com
ing cheese, and the nearly worthless
commodity made by some of the cream
eries will be forced out of the market.

An English contemporary very prop

as "patrons'' of one enterprise and an

known people are named as "trustees"
or "directors" of various businesses,
with the tacit understanding that a
president, a secretary, or a cashier shall
manage the business according to his
own sweet will, while the gentlemen
with high sounding names do nothing

Last summer our dog Towser was |

A SHOWER OF RAILROAD
The great demand for railroad spikes
has called into existence a remarkable
machine, now in successful operation
at the establishment of Dilworth,
Porter & Co., Pittsburg. It is the in
vention of the late Mr. James Swett,
and comprises a series of "continuous"
rolls handling the (material automati
cally. The material, in the form of bil
lets two and a half inches in diameter
and three feet long, is taken in by the
machine, and in thirteen seconds re
duced in diameter and increased in
length to a rod thirty-six feet long and
nine-sixteenths of an inch square. In
forty seconds more this rod has to be
cut in two and passed through two
•pike machines, from which finishtd
spikes shower at the rate of forty tons
every ten working hours. By working
"double time" five of these machines
have turned out eleven hundred kegs
of railroad spikes per cUv, each keg
containg one hundred and fifty pounds,
or thirteen kegs to the ton. The pro-,
duct of ordinary rolls and machines is
from two to two and a half tons of fin
ished spikes per working day of ten
. Parties in legislative bodies may
eagerly clutch at everything that
will give them an opportunity to
abuse each other, but there is one task
upon which they may always be trust
ed to join forces, and that is the work
of making ends meet. No matter
who may rule, no matter for what the
outlay may have been incurred, the
running expenses of the government
must be met, and neither party dare
refuse to vote the mouey. In Eng
land there has been no more distaste
ful move of the new government than
the proposal to increase the income
tax, and the opposition could not ask
a better grievance upon which to gain
the sympathy of the people, if only
they dared use it; but if more money
is not raised England cannot meet her
bills. There is no other method of
making sure of the necessary amount,
so when the proposition was made in
the Commons on Wednesday night to
reject the proposal to increase the tax
it was defeated by a large majority,
many of the opposition voting with
the government. Some of the money
will go to pay for old liberal lunacies
and some for conservative blunders,
but it matters not who did the danc
ing or how they danced, the piper
must be paid. The same experience
comes to" our own parties; they may
call each other the most dreadful
names for past party blunders, each
may claim to have the only knowl
edge that exists about economy, but
when it comes to the work of raising
the money the party that refuses to
help must give up the ghost.

The new dance, 'the racquet,' is thus
described : "The embrace is close, for
the dancers need the strongest support
from each other; while they give a
sideway kick with both feet, at the
same time the body bends with a low
! dip. The lady's sash ends and frills
and the coat tails of tjie gentleman fly
about in all sorts of odd fantastic forms.
The time and motion of the music and
steps must satisfy the fastest and gid
diest of our young people. It is a par
lor substitute for a cancan."
Walnut Ridge, a wealthy Quaker
settlement near Rushville, Indiana,
lately became very much excited over
a new religion, which they call White
Lightning Religion. The excitement
became so great that schools were dis
missed and the people left their places
of business and farms to participate.
The leaders pretended to have super
natural powers, and held the bodies of
friends with attempts to revive them
until burial was compelled by the au
thorities. A man named Pitts, a lead
er, married a woman imbued with the
same faith, and who greatly maltreat
ed the daughter of Pitt's first wife.
They gave her a severe beating, com
pelling her to completely undress to
receive it. This so incensed the irre
ligious neighbors that they went to
the house in a ti>dy, tarred and feath
ered Pitts and left him a sample of tl e
rope that would be used if the relig
ious frenzy be not checked.

as incurable. It is not so. If it is taken in
time it is as easily cured as a wart-or a corn.
We know very well that it is a fearful disease

is if it is neglected, but if it is attended to
when it first makes its appearance, or soon
after, there is no trouble in eradicating it
from the system. Persons will have to be here

organs and vital fluid pure and healthy we may
safely defv the attacks of disease,and no medicine

Are now putting on the market a Plow that
is aa much superior to any Plow heretofore
made as the Plows of the past tew years have
been superior to those made half a century
It combines all the excellencies of any Plow
It obviates £Ol the objections made to any
In addition it embraces several new features
of the greatest value, for which we have ob

Its Beam, Clevis, Jointer Standard and Wheel
Standard will be STEEL, and Its mold board
will be a composition of Steel and Iron chilled
under a process tor which we have alao
obtained an exclusive Patent. It will be
CHILLED STEEL PLOW
Its weight will be eighteen pounds less than
our present styles.
A first-class Steel Plow, made In the or
dinary way, full rigged, retails for twenty-two
dollars. Inferior Steel Plows retail from six
teen to nineteen dollars.
The price of our new Plow will he but
Seventeen Dollmrc, and It Will be the
cheapest Agricultural Implement ever sold.
Its mold board will outwear three of the
very best kinds of the ordinary steel mold
It will scour in soils where all steel plows
and all other plows have hitherto proved a
With this Plow will be Introduced a corru
gated Plow Point and Jointer Point, on which
we have also obtained a Patent, and which is
also a great improvement, both as regards
strength and wear.
The Jointer can be shifted so as to take
more or less land, and also more or leas pitch,
and It can always be kept on a line with the

The beam is adjustable for Spring or Fan
Plowing, and also for two or three horses.
The handles can be adjusted to acconimo
date a man or boy, on the same Plow.
It is a perfect Plow.
Wooden beams are going out of use because
they shrink, swell and warp, and never run
two seasons alike.
Iron beams are too heavy.
Malleable beams become demoralttd and
tend, which Is much worse than to break.
A Steel beam Is the necessity of the day. It

than any other style.

We do not palm ofT on them a composition
Of various metals and call It chilled metal.
We want agents tor this new Plow in every

We can give but a very small discount to
them, but we will pay the Railroad Freight.
We propose to place this Plow in the hands
of Farmers as near the cost of manufacture
It will be the u*t Agricultural Implement
It shall also be tbadtapesfc
Persons therefore who are not wining to act
as agents on the principle that "a nimble six
pence la better than a slow shilling," need not
apply for an agency.
No Plows on commission. All sales absolute.
WThis Is the only Steel Chilled Plow In
Steel costs several times more than Iron.
But this Plow, full rigged, by giving small
discounts, can be sold for seventeen Dollars,
Compare tills price with that of any Iran Plow
