I.IYK THE KAUM A CUAXt'K.
The present harvest is the most abun
dant for several years. The hay crop h
especially abundant, th'- acreage and yield
both being unusually large. The oat- and
com crops also promise well. This comli
tion indicates a surplus of the products on
many farms in this county and as soon as
harvest is over, the important question of
how this surplus is to be disposed of must
bo determine d.
To seil a single ton of hay or straw, or a
bushel of oats or corn, in their original
state, is bad farming. The rapid growth
of the use of commercial fertilizers in this
county proves conclusively that the pro
ductiveness of our soil i* being permanent
ly impaired. The first requirement, there
fore. of future successful fanning is that
this impoverishment shall be stopped and
the only way to do this is by returning to
the land in the form of manure the plant
food which has been taken from it in the
shape of crops. A man fit to be a farmer
can sell the surplus produce of his land at
a higher price in the shape of beef. pork,
mutton or wool than in its original state
and have the manure besides. And nothing
can take place of farm manure as a fertiliz
er. The effects of ail fertilizers are about
equal on the first crop, but only those of
farm manure are permanent. The first
step therefore, should be to provide suffi
cient stock, of the kind which the individ
nal's judgment tells him will likely be most
profitable, to consume all his harvest pro
ducts during the winter.
Farming is no longer an occupation
where nature furnishes everything and the
farmer sows and reaps as a matter of
course. It has come to be a business that
requires head work, just as any othpr busi
ness does. That it is a business which is
necessarily unprofitable i« untrue. It- is
true the returns are not royal, but they
can be made always sure and this is true ol
no other business. All that is necessary is
that the same intelligent foresight and at
tention bo given to fanning that is given
by any successful business man in any
other business and the same success will
follow.—Washington. Pa. Observer.
HAYMAKING IS FINLAND.
Mark l.ane Ki press.
A curious way of making hay is very
generally adopted by the Fins. Poor men
who own no meadows have long been ac
customed to tut what grass they can find
in the forest glades and other waste lands.
Owing to the lack of roads and farmsteads
the hay was stnffed among the branches of
trees to await the winter frost and snow.
When it could easily be carried off by sled
ges. After a wet season some farmers not
iced that this was actually better in quali
ity than that which they themselves made
from much better grass. The wild crop, so
to call it. has dried much better in the tree
branches exposed to a free circulation of
air than the rich herbage which had lain
long on the sodden ground. Hence it oc
curred to them to make temporary trees
upon which their own crops might be driud.
This experiment was attended by such
success that the plan has been widely imi
tated. and bids fair entirely to supplant
the old-fashioned methods. After the mow
ing is done a number of poles about ten
feet in length, and provided with trans
verse pegs, are set up at intervals, and the
grass is loosely heaped upon them. The
result is said to be excellent. Even in wet
weather only a small portion forming the
outside of the pile is discolored, while the
inner portions, exposed to the air beneath
and protected from the rain above, are
dried in perfect condition. Mowing can be
carried on in spite of wind and lain, and
when once the grass is placed upon the
drying poles it may be left without fear of
serious damage until the weather changes.
An insect, called the ''buffalo fly," is
causing farmers much uneasiness in some
sections, and it may be that our farmers
will be forearmed if forewarned. The little
insect seats itself under the skin at the base
of the cattle's horns, and cats the horn un
til it falls off. Cases of this kind are fre
quently reported, and in some cases the in
sect pierces the brain, and the animal dies.
One fanner reports the insee as eating into
the milk-veins of hi-- cows. Thoroughly
coating the horn with gas tar or fish oil
will prevent the insect from attaching it
s ilf to the horn.
The law prohibiting the killing of a calf
before it has attained the proper age is se
vere and stringent. It provides that any
any person who kills,or causes to be killed,
with intent to sell the meat thereof for
family use, a calf of less than four weeks,
or knowingly sells or has in his possess
ion such meat, with the intent to sell the
s.tme for sueh use to a foreign market.shall
be imprisoned not more than six months or
fined not more than S3OO. It would be
proper for the purchasers of meat to look
well to this matter, and to exercise the
host judgment as to whether they believe
all the veal offered for sale in our market
has attained the sufficient age to make it
marketable, as well as palatable. It will
also be of interest to those who sell meats
to exercise care in this matter.
AVe wish to give t.ur farmer friends a
warning, which they should carefully con
sider. Whenever they have been unable
t.> meet interest payments on mortgages
and the loan companies are pressing them
and dAianding deeds, we waru them in
no ease to give deeds for their land, unless
their notes are returned to them at the
same time. The following ure the reasons:
1st —A deed for the land does not pay
'Jud—The company by taking the land
have the debt and the laud. too.
3rd—They can sell the land at a nominal
iigure and credit the price on the debt,thus
getting the land and holding the balance
against the mortgagors.
4th —If the company wish to foreclose
let them do so. Then be ou hand the day
of the sale, and see that the land sells lor
the amoiiDt of the debt or as nearly so us
So farmers, pay your interest; if you
can't,don't give deeds;but follow the course
laid down above. Don't forget this.
Exposure to the direct rays of the sun.
without shade or shelter, is to cause great
suffering to swine and sheep. During the
.heat ul the ilar the animals will cease
grazing and seek shade. A visit to the
pasture will show exposed stock to be
panting and suffering from the heat.
The tomato bushes must now lie exam
ined daily or the large green worms will
strip off the leaves.
Leaving the wagons and tools out in the
sun is often the cause of some of the parts
becoming loose. The best seasoned wood
is affected by moisture and dryness, and
all the tools aud implements not in use
should be kept under cover.
