Ilore is a short chapter on the rearing of Turkeys
which comn. nds itself to the attention of our reader?)
for turkey raising is one of the departments of a farm
with which most of our farmers and fanners' wives
seem least acquainted A flock of good-sized, heal
thy. well-fattened turkeys, about holiday times, is
not only pleasant to look upon, but to feed on. and,
if you are economically disposed, to raise the wind
Why is it that at least three out of four farmers do
not succeed in raising turkeys ? With all other
poultry they are successful, but turkeys are abandon
ed by most farmers is too uncertain and troublesome
some to bother with. Now this is all wrong, for if a
person gets the knack of raising these fine fowls, they
oan raise as many as they please. So far as lam
concerned, I generally raise more turkeys than I
know what to do with, and L have turkeys now, that
were left aver last year, that will be eaten as we want
them. Last winter we fairly reveled in roast turkey,
gave quite a number away, sold others, have some,
bjsides the breeders, still left. My plan of raising is
aimple, and I will give it in as few words a3posssib!e
First, I never allow a mkey to set until about the
middle of May. They will commence to lay early in
April, but I take their eggs away as fast as laid, and
keep them unlil they lay their second batch, which
will be finished about the second or third week in
May. I then give her some e'ghtecn or tweury of
the eggs and let her set. AloDg the middle of Juno
she will be off. I then put her and her young on an
old barn floor, or other outbuilding that is dry and
feed on curd and on cracked corn. Curd is the best
for a continual feed when the farmer has plenty, but
cracked corn or coarse meal, mixed with lobbered
milk will answer just as well.
After they have been in-doors for two or three days,
or long enough to get fairly on their legs-for the
tnrkey is the weakest of all fowls when yet young—l
I let them out, providing the weather is fine and
there is no dew on the grass.
The great reason why people cannot or do not raise
turkeys, is because they turn them out as soon as
hatched, and about the first wetting they get they
keel over and die. To succeed in raising turkeys,
therefore, you must keep them dry until at Icnst ten
weeks old, when they will stand as much water as
any fowls, gees s and ducks expected. Of course they
must be driven in every night, and on all occasions
when a storm is threatening. The reader will at
once perceive there is care in all this ; but when
Christmas, Thanksgiving, etc., come to say nothing
of the Sunday roasts during winter, cur care s lost in
enjoyment, and we come to the conclusion that tur
keys are worth raising.
As the time is now approaching when fruit grafting
will commence, and as we have been frequently ask
ed of late for the manner of preparing grafting wax,
notwithstanding the many times we have already
given these receipts, though not exactly agreeing
with later experience—we herewith publish what has
been found by us to answer the purpose admirably:—
Five parts of rosin ;
One part of beeswax :
One part of tallow.
Melt these in a skillet, tin-cup. or any metal ves
sel ; the skillet being preferable as it can be handled
better, and the wax keeps warm longer in it. Melt
these over the fire and mix together well. When the
scions are set —say as many as twenty or thirty, or as
few as is wished—have the mixture ready and apply
it warm, with a small wooden pm'dle. See that ev
ery part is covered and the air excluded. It require
Oo bandage.— Germanlown Telegraph;

When the d; mand for choice grape vines isgreater
than can be su; plied by the ordinary modes of pro
pagation, some nurserymen multiply them by cut
tings of the greenwood. Ii is the experience of
many of the best cultivators tnat vines propagated
year after year in this way deteriorate and become
less hardy. The Delaware is cited as having especial
ly suffered from this mode of treatment. It seems
very likely that continued propagation from unripe
ehoots would produce weak plant'. We should not
think of sowing from seed so immature that it is just
Capable of germinating ; a feeble plant would be pro
duced and though the circumstances arc not pre
cisely the same with cuttings, there is no doubt tha -
Strong well-riponed wood will give plants of greate r
vigor than can be raised from green cuttings.
THE APPLE WORM.
The moth from which this pest proceeds deposits
e SS s ' n 'he blossom. Tho grub, when hatched
penetrates to tho core, and feeds on the grow ing
pulp When grown it eats its own way out, the fruit,
meantime, ripening prematurely and falling The
grub then leaves it ar.d ascends the trunk of the tree
Ilere it makes its cocoon, generally under a scale o
old bark, where it remains until laying time, and
then comes out a moth, and lays its eggs in the blos
some for a new generation. Now is the time to de
stroy it. Scrape the scales of Lark from the trunk
and lower limbs and wash with a weak solution of
potash, a little strorgor one of soda, or better, one
part of soft soap to thre eof water. Whale oil soap
is good, if to be had, and is as cheap as a broom If
you have nothing better put a bushel or two of ashes
in a barrel of water-say two bushels. Let it stand
twenty-four hours, and at sundown next day apply it
plentifully, ashes and all, with a swab. This is a
remedy always at hand, and is about as good as any
other. It will take off the scaly bark, kill the mo
there of the coming generation, and leave the trunk
after a rain or two, as smooth and healthy a: a girl's
face of sweet sixteen.
FEED AXD CARE OF COLTS.—A writer in the Ger
mantoten Telegraph gives the following directions on
the subject : Wean.the colt at five or six months old
first teaching him, while sucking the mare, to eat
oats. When taken from tho dam confine the colt

During the first winter,.feed daily two quarts of oats,

A Shlnplaster Story*
A sliinplaster story has been localised here, and
applied to a popular dry goods doaler. The story
may have been in print, perhaps, but a repetition
will do no harm. As the story goes, a farmer pur
chased few cents' worth of goods from this trade,
and gave him a bill to make change from. The lat
ter returned him eighty-five cents in his engraved
promises to pay. genteely known as checks but vul
garly known as shmplasters.
" What's them 1" inquired the astonished coun
" Oh," said the merchant, those are a sort of
currency we dry goods dealers have," and went
away to another customer.
The countryman went off, not exactly satisfied
■ but soon after returned, and bought nearly a dollar's
worth of goods. After receiving the neatly tied up
package, and being told the price, ho deposited a
number of pumpkin seeds on the counter.
" What are those I" inquired the merchant.
"Oh," replied the countryman, coolly, " them's a
sort of currency, we farm ers have," and thereupon
left the store.
The story has it that tho dry goods dealer, who ap
preciates good jokes, was so amused he did not call
his unprofitable servant back.— Boston Bost.
A SLIGHT MISUNDKRING. —"Oh, I love you like
everything," said a young man to his sweetheart,
warmly pressing her hand
" Ditto," said she, verj gently returning the
pressure. The ardent lover, not happening to be
over learned, was sorely puzzled to understand the
meaning of " ditto," but was ashamed to expose his
ignorance by asking the girl. He went home ; and
the next day, being at work in tho cabbage-yard
with his father he spoke out—
" Daddy, what's the meaning of ditto ?"
" Why," said the old man, " this here is one cab
bage-head ain't it V'
" Yes, daddy."
" Well, that ar's ditto."
"Rot that ar'good-for nothing gal!" ejaculated
the indigpant son, " she called me a cabbage-head,
and I'll never go to see her again," and fortunately
i for the girl he kept his word.

(Clapping and still louder eheers )
"In another month, my friends I had a good
coat on my back, and I never hail the like before."
j (Great applause and crie3 of "Go out.")
" A fortnight after that, my lnends, I bought a

but paused and waited for an explanation.
" You wonder," he continued, •' why I bought a
coffin. Well, my friends, 1 will tell you why. I

To THE GIRLS. —An exchange in giving an ai
[ vice to young ladies on the subject of matrimony :
; " Never marry a tellow who is ashamed to carry a

until his father has opened his shop, store or office
and swept it out; who frequents taverns, bowling
saloons, prize fights, Ac; who owes his tailor, shoe
maker, washer-woman, jeweler, barber, printer, and
landlady, aud never pays his debts—who is always
talking about his acquaintances, and condemning
them ; whose tongue is always running about non
sense. who thinks he is the greatest man in ihe neigh

their effects upon trial.
These Pills, the resu't of long investigation tnd
study, are offered to the public as the best atf
most complete which the present state of medial
science can afford. They are compounded not of
the drugs themselves, but of the medicinal vino®
only of Vegetable remedies, extracted by (hernial
process in a state of purity, and combined together
' in such a manner as to insure the best results. Th,
[ system of composition for medicines has been found
in the Cherry Pectoral and Pills both, to product t
more efficient remedy than had hitherto been ob
tained by any process. The reason is perfectly ob
vious. While by the old mode of composition, ererj
medicine is burdened with more or less of icri
monious and injurious qualities, by this each indi
vidual virtue only that is desired for the cmtin
effect is present. All the inert and obnoxious qua),
ities of each substance employed are left behind, tin
curative virtues only being retained. Hence it is
self-evident the effects should prove, as thev h?
* proved, more purely remedial, and the Pills* surer,
more powerful antidote to disease than any other
medicine known to the world.
As it is frequently expedient that my mediant
should be taken under the counsel of an attending
Physician, and as he could not properly judge of s
remedy without knowing its composition, I hr
supplied the accurate Formula by which both m
Pectoral and Pills are made to the whole body o)
Practitioners in the United States ar.d British Amur
ican Provinces. If, however, there should be ny
