Uce is a short chapter an the rearing of turkeys,
which commends itself to the attention of our read
ers, for turkey raising is one of the departments of a
farm, with which most of our tarme-s anil farmers'
wives seem less, acquainted. A floek of good-sized,
healthy J well-fattened turkeys, about holiday times,
is not J only pleasant to look upon, but to feed on,
an l, if ycuj arc economically disposed, to raise the
wind on :
Why is it that at least three out of four farmers do
not succeed in raising turkeys'? With all otherpoul
try they are successful, but turkeys are abandoned
by most farmers as too uncertain and troublesome to
bother with. Now this is all wrong, for ira person
gets the knack of raising these fine fowls, they can
raise as many as they please. So far as I am con
cerned, I generally raise more tuikeys than I know
what to tin with, and I have turkeys now that were
left over last year, that will be eaten as we want
them. Last winter we fairly reveled in roast turkey,
gave quite a number awav, sold others, have some,
besides the, breeders, still left. My plan of raising
is siinplo, aud I will give it in as few words as pos
First, I never allow a turkey to set until about the
middle of My. They will commence to lay early ,
in April, but I take their eggs away as fast as laid, j
and keep them until they lay their second batch, I
which will be finished about the second or third week j
in May. I then give her same eighteen or twenty j
of the eggs and let her set. Along the middle of
June she will be off. I then put her and her young
on an old bam floor, or other out building that is
dry, and feed on card and on cracked corn. Curd is
the best for a continual feed when thfl former has
plenty, but craeked corn or coarse meal, mixed with
loppere 1 milk will answer just as well.
After they have bean in-doors for two or three
days, or long enough to get fairly on their Tegs—for
the turkey is the weakest of all fowls when yet
young—l let them out, providing the weather is fine
and there is no dew on the grass.
Thrf great reason why people cannot or do not raise
turkeys, is because they turn tbeta out as soon as
hatelied, and about the first wetting they get they
keel over and die. To suceeo. 1 in raising turkeys,
therefore, yon must keep them dry until at least tcr.
weeks old, when they will stand about as much wj
tor as any fowls, geese and ducks excepted. Of
course they must be driven in every night, and on r.ll
occasions when a storm is threatening. The read er
will at once perceive there is care in all this; Yut
when Christmas, Thanksgiving, etc., come to say
nothing of the Sunday roasts during winter, our care
is lost in enjoyment, and we come to the conclusion
that turkeys are worth raising.
It is no easy matter to teach an old maj or woman
how to milk a cow. The art should be tr ught to all
children, while they are capable of leaf uing. They
should learn in the first place to treat '.he cows with
kindness, C>r T know of but few cows ti.ut will be for- |
ced to part with all their milk- Er.t when treated I
with kindness, they are pleased to be relieved of a !
flood in distended u lder, and will n ever object to be
stripped clean when a known friend, approaches.
It is quite important to milk cows with rapidity.
I.ot no one bo permitted to sit *nd talk to a friend
while drawing out the milk. 11 t the operator know
that no talk is to bo permitted : n the cow-yard, for
milking and talking are two die inet operations, and
must never be united.
The milk must bo drawn t <it with rapidity, or a
portion of it the best is lost. In half a minute after
commencing the process of drawing out the milk
there is a rapid flow which r oust not be checked, rf
the cow is left a minute c.r two when half the milk
is drawn the natural floor I is checked, the milk re
turns hack into the duc'.s and you ftiust wait for a
part of it until the nt it milking time. Ily a repeti
tion of this careless mo le of milking, .he quantity is
gradually diminish, i , till in n short time the cow is
dry. Whereas, by s ttention to the milking with ra
pidity and draw jJ I from the udder, the cow will
yield her milk true y for ten months after her time of
calving. I hold .hat all cows ought to go dry two
months before hr ving another calf.

FEE DING GRAIN TO COLTS.
A subscriber inquires of the American Agricultu
rist whet! jer it is advisablo to feed oats to c dts in
winter, some of the neighbors think the practice inju
rious. It is objected that grain of any kind is too
stimulating for youDg animals, and that they will
grow up more hardy if kept on scanty food. Wa re
gs rd tli.s as an error. The usual food of an animal
including grain, is not '• stimulating," in the sense as
the spices and drinks used by man, were that the case,
there would be no question ai to tho impropriety of
allowing grain to young horses or other animal?.
Grain contains more nutriment than the same bulk
of straw or hay. If fed in a large quantity to one
not worked sufficiently to keep ihe digestive power*
very active, the stomach and ether organs will be
impaired, and the health of tho animal will be injur"
cd, But given judiciously, grain promotes the growth
and strength of horses either young or old. Th e
proper way to harden an animal, is not to cramp the
growth of its organs, but tc develop to the fullest ex
tent, and nutritious food is indispensable to this end.
A NOVEL TRAI'FOR KILLIYG RATS*
The premises of a gco i many farmers are infested
with rats, and we are often asked for modes of de
struction. A resilent of Brooklyn is vexed with an
increasing family of rats that seem to grow fat on
arsenic and rat-exlermination. lie doesn't like rats,
and refers his care to the New York Sundry Times.
That Journal recomruonds a trap made as follows ;
'• Tako a maekcro 1 barrel, for instance, and fill it
to about one third of its bight with water, and
place a log endwise in the water, so that one end of
it will just remain above tho surface. Make the
head of the barrel a little too small to lit, and sus
pend it by two pins to the inside of the op of the
barrel, so that it wilj hang as if on a pivot ind easily
tip by touching either side. On this head thus sus
pended, secure a piece of savory meat. 7je first rat
that scents it will, to get the meat, leap upon the
barrel head. The head will tip, or tilt, precip tate
him into the water and resume its position. The
Tat in the water will swim to the log, get on the end
of it, and squeal vociferously. His cries w ill bring
other rats, all of whom will fight for the only dry
spot in if, namely, the end of the log. As only one
rat can hold it, tho ristor will drown ail the rest, and
can in the morning, be drowned himself. We have
seen twen y rata caught ia one night by such a

" For taking something," he replied.

" Why," said he,' one morning I did not feel very

Her modest request was met with the indignant re- [

The old lady settled hack in her seat very eorapla- |

Oh! nothing,' replied the old lady 'I only wanted i

HAZEL-EYED GIRLS —Maj. Noah said a hazel eye
inspires at first sight a Platoni-an sentiment, securely
founded as the lock of Gibraltar. A woman with a
hazel eye never elopes from her husband, never chats
scandal, never sacrifices her husband's comforts to
her QWis, never talks too much or too little—always
is an intellectual, agreeable and lovely creature.
We never knew, says a brother editor, of hut one
hazel-eved woman who was uuinteresting and unam
iable, and she ha l a nose that looked as we Yan
kees say, like the little end f nothing whittled down
to a point.

returned to him, and seating herself upon his knee,
put her arms around him aud kissed him as much to
his gratification as she used to do when living.
" You do not mean to say," remarked the skeptic,
