Weaning Calves.
This year I have fed five calves with
half the labor and better success than I
fed three last year. My plan is to let the
calf be with the cow until the third day ;
then take it away, and commence feeding.
Then I take good hay and put it in a ket
tle and steep it well until the liquid is of a
dark green color. The liquid is sweet,
and a very naturrl nourishment. Add
about one•haif of this liquid or hay tea to
half of milk. Pour th I hay tea into the
milk while warm, co as to heat the milk to
the right temperature.' The old process Is
inure apt to burn, and it will sour sco:,:r,

to run with the cow, and it is also more

Use of Limo as a Fertilizer.
It becomes now a matter of curiosity to
ascettain if we can, how the use of lime
as a fertilizer came first into use among us.
By agitating the subject now, among our
varieu, country papers, and "oldest
'bitantr," we may probably elicit sufficient
facts to establish the earliest history of its
use, and by whom first suggested.
Our attention has been called Lo this sub
ject from the reading In the American
Journal ,17 Science, a review of Ruffin's
Essay on Calcareous Manures. In that
article, it is stated that the German iutmi•
grants from Palatinate first brought it in
our coumry. A gentleman of our Sc.

As reasons for disareditng,rlZuffin's ac•
count of its origin, we have to say, to wit;
In Lancaster county, filly yearn ago, lime
was very little used by the German de
scendants. The same can be said of the
farmers in Be rks county. The same of the
farmers in the upper part of Montgomery
county. Chester county seems to have
chiefly set the example of its earliest use
there ; and that too, not among the Ger.
Gmlann descendants peculiarly. It has
bee'n a tradition of Ghester county that the
earliest lime used there for building purpo
ses was brought out from England. And
now, th"re is a house in IV illistown, owned
by the Garret family, built abont the year
1700, which the deseendruto say wit. built

Sheep Tick Destroyer
Malty nl my neighbors, in order to free
their sheep and lambs of that disgusting
and troublesome insect, the lqicki" rippl)
spirit, of turpentine, which is a most wea
hcnintx application, and although - eff..ctual
in re nt oong the evil, it i:ljurtts:the animal
alma, as much am would the evil itself, it
nor rvinored. My plan is to give rev
hunk, aft, she,uing the sheep, a thorough
weAting in New England rum---u
which, while it ilmost instantaneously de-
:toys the '•tick," leaves the animals brisk
and IRely, without any subsequent depres
sion or loss of eneogy and health. This
is by no means nn expensive application,
two gallons of good liquor; worth forty
cents per gallon, being enough for fifty
lambs, if properly applied. No tick can
exist in a lock of wool which has been
thoroughly wet Nith this rum, or any oth
er distilled liquor. Alcohol, in a concen
trated state, is surto death to the insect.--
Sheer-Rhenrina should be done in warn
weather after the 20th ol the Month.
