TOl* DRESSING WHEAT, &C.
In ISSS we visited the faryi of John Johnston, near
Geneva, N. Y , in company with Mr. H. E Hooker,
of this city. Mr. Johnston pointed out to us the
effect of a dressing of salt, (259 Iks.) to the acre. The
salted wheat was much the best; the straw heavier,
brighter and stiffer. and the heads larger. It was
at least five days earlier, and the midge had conse
(juenlv, done little or no damage; while on the ad
joining eleven acres the midge had injure 1 it materi
Mr. Johnston pointed out strips of wheat where
the land hau been manured, and the same etfeet was
also distinctly visible,
A few days since. Mr. Ilookor was in our office
j:i> i remained: " I learned a good deal from that
visit to Joahston, that has letn ot use to me- I ha\ e
top dressed my wheat several times since then, and
always wiib great benefit. 1 have observed the
same thing among my neighbors.
14 1 have a piece,'' he continued, 44 part of which I
top-dressed last fall, wth well rotted dung. The
wheat on thi- pirt is at least a week earlier and wil l
yield as much again as the other portions of the
field. It will yicl ' thirty bushels par acre, while I
think the other will not go over fifteen bushels."
44 How did you apply the manure ? we asked."
4! I spread it on the fallow and hflVrowed it in. I
then sowed the seed and harrowed it again and roll
44 1 know another ease where the manure and seed
were all plowed in together, a d the wheat is excel
44 Wi ha gang plow, 1 suppose V*
44 No, the farmer had no gang plow, or that woulJ
have done the work more expeditiously. The piece
was a summer fallow, broken up the last of June,
and crossed plowed very shallow, so as not to turn up
the sod, in August. The m,inure was then spread on
the surface and seed and all turned unler with the
plow as shallow as passible—not more than two iujhes
deep, or at the most, three inches."
44 The manure seems to set as a kind of mulch
The wheat gets a good start and winters well. The
roots seem to spread out more near the surface and it
does not seud out a tap root- The freezing and
thawing does not injure it. The whole mass of roots
heave up an 1 down with the soil anl receives 110 inju
ry. It it had tap roots they would be broken off)
and the plant weakened or killed ."
44 1 have always believed." we remarked, 44 that
wheat would be very grateful for a little manure-
But Johu Johnston does not manure his wheat in
that way. He applies it on the grass land the fall
before he breaks it up for wheat. At least, this, I
believe is his usual plan. The farmers in Wheatland
are .ulopting the same system with good result."
44 There is one thing," continued Mr. Hooker, 44 I
want to tell you. I had a fine piece of land that I
planted in potatoes and the next spring sowed it with
oa s, seeding it down with clover and timothy. The
next year I mowed the clover. It was a fair crop—
principally clover. It so happened tli.it I eoubl not
pasture it, and so let the see-on 1 crop of clover rot on
the land The next year I had an excellent crop of
hay—uioie timi thy than the year before. The see"
ond crop I left grow and act on the land as before
and the next year I bad still heavier grass. I let
the sec* 1 crop rot on tho land as before and this
season it is the heaviest cropf ot grass I ever had-'
44 Is it nearly all timothy?"
44 K0 there is a good deal of clover in it. The
fact is. the second crop produces a good deal of seed,
and I have no doubt that had I pastured the land in
thcfall in the u j u tl way I should not by this time
have had more than half a ton of hay per acre, as
the lindis very poor."— Gcnescc Farmer.
A SUITESStUIi WINTERING OF
As the season has.come rounl when the careful
apiarian looks well to rhe comfort of his little busy
friends, the writer is reminded of bis last winter and
gives his experience fur the benefit of those who have
as yet no settled plans for the better preservation of
b. iturtng the cord weather.
The writer's hives have movable combs. The size
is 14 iui-hes every way 'in the- outside, and each one
is placed by itself upon a small platform, close to the
ground. On the top of each hive are four holes for
supers- The cover which goes over the supers, is
large enough (say 14 A inches in the clear) to slip
over the hive, and when the supers are off, covers the
hive completely, and still leaves two or more inches
space between the top of the hive and top of the out
side cover. (In summer? this same cover is raised
sufficiently to place supers under, and rests upon
cleats, which ate screwed on to the four sides of the
hive at any height desired.) Last winter, the wri
ter opened one of the holes in the top of the bive and
tacki J wi.e-cloth over it, and (hen put ou the cover
(or sutiout, I call it.) The opening made in the cover
to correspond wtth the entrance to the hive, when
dipped wholly down is not more than one and one
half inches long, and one half inch high. Thus, no
great current of air can blow into the hive, and tho
I vui.-t utinospboro rises through the hole in the top,
irste Jof collecting d.iii; ncss in the hive.
Le liter was never so successful in wintering
I.' i•• as the lit season. t> n raising the cov
ers in spring, instead of n damp m ;ss of debris,
an i large qu mtities of dead bees, the fl .or \va s dry,
ind the caps o! .he cells lay aioi.tr in regular order
under the space? between the couibs—showing that
the hers had not moved much.
The uumber of dead bees wu much less, and evi
dently those whit h had died a natural death—not
the sleek, whole winged ones, hut dark, jagged
winged. hard wciktis—perhaps a half tumbler full
in tach here.
i hough the size i f the hive is here given, it is not
necessary that it should I e ad' ptcd lor the better
preservation of the Lees. The principle can bo fol"
lowed out by any usi g the square bos hive, com
mon among fa i nters. Another advantage in con
nection with this arrangement is, that if the bees
fall short of h >ney, they can bo tea iily fed.
"i.e of my hives (il nt February) had not n drop
of honey in it. I filled a tumMef full of plain bar
ley candy, an 1 inverted it over one of the holes, and
the bees Icisurily consumed it all. One pound (cost
25 ets) carried lhc:u through till the time of fruit
.los.-„n.s, w::en (the weather being favorable,) they
laid up suf : ~nt to la it till the white clover came.
l\ ill not some other give their experience respect
ing this most important matter of keeping bees
through the winter?

that if it "boiled for some time, all the gas that is

Well. Now suppose you were working
for a farmer instead of a railroad, would you
expect your employer to hitch op .lis team

This seemed a poser, but it wasn't.

"THE AGE" will advocate the principles and poli
cy of the Democratic party, and will, therefore, nee
essarily favor the restoration of the Union as it was
and defend the Constitution of the United States,ard
that of this Commonwealth.
It will freely and fairly discuss all legitimate sub
jects of newspaper comment, including of course, and
pre-eminently at this time, all questions connected
with the existing unhappy condition of our ountry.
It will fearlessly criticise the public aetsof public
servants, and defend the legal and constitutional
rights of individual citizens ana of sovereign states,
against assualts from any quarter.
It will seek to awaken the minds of the people to
a proper sense of the a tual condition of the Repub
lic—to present to them, truthfully, the fearful perils
in which we stand as a nation—to exhibit the magni
tude of the task that is before them, if they would
check our downward progress—and to inspire them
with patriotic determination to apply THE REMEDY
for our national ills.
In brief, it will, in all things, aim to l e the faith
ful exponent of Democratic principles, aDd to render
itself worthy to be an organ of the Democratic par
ty, under whose auspices our country prospered so
long and so well. The restoration of that party—
the party of the CONSTITUTION and the UNION— to
power, in the legislative and executive governmen
tal branches of the States and of the Union, we be
lieve to be necessaryto avert anarchy, and the utter
ruin ot the Republic. To contribute to that restora
tion will be our highest aim.
The News, Literary, Commercial, and other de
partments, will receive duo attention, and will be so
conducted as to make "THE AGE" worthy of the
support of the general reader.
IJT The many difficulties now surrounding an en
terprise of the magnitude of that in which the under
.-ignea are engaged, require them to appeal to the
public for a generous support, and to ask for " THE
AGE" a liberal patronage and extended circulation.
The present state of the preparatory arrangements
warrants the expectation, that the first number of
the Daily will appear before the clo>e of the coming

THE peculiar taint or
infection which we call
FFV SCROFULA lurks in
*ji the constitutions of
ft multitudes of men. It

the blood, wherein
I \ Ifa#that fluid becomes in-
BI A xtd/Kyp&l competent to snstain
idjtTSurs-dthe vital forces in their
vigorous action, and
leaves the system to
into disorder and
decay. The scrofulous
| contamination is variously caused by mercurial
disease, low living, disordered digestion from
unhealthy food, impure air, filth and filthy
habits, the depressing vices, and, above all, by
| the venereal iufection. Whatever (>e its origin,
it is hereditary in the constitution, descending
j "from parents to children unto the third and
fourth generation ;" indeed, it seems to be the
rod of Him who says, " I wHI visit the iniqui
j ties of the fathers upon their children." The
diseases which it originates take various names,
according to the organs it attacks. In the
lungs, Scrofula produces tubercles, and finallr
Consumption ; in the glands, swellings which
suppurate anil become ulcerous sores; in the
stomach and bowels, derangements which pro
duce indigestion, dyspepsia, and liver com
plaints; on the skin, eruptive and cutaneous
i affections. These all having the same origin,
| require the same remedy, viz. purification and
invigoration of the blood. Purify the blood,
and these dangerous distempers leave you.
With feeble, foul, or corrupted blood, you can
not have health ; with that '* life of the flesh"
healthy, you cannot have scrofulous disease.
is compounded from the most effectual anti
dotes that medical science has discovered for
this afflicting distemper, and for the cure of the
disorders it entails. That it is far superior to
any other remedy yet devised, is known by all
who have given it "a trial. That it does com
bine virtues truly extraordinary in their effect
upon this class of complaints, is indisputably
proven by the great multitude of publicly
known and remarkable cures it has made of
| the following diseases : King's Evil or
Glandular Swellings, Tumors, Erup
tions, Pimples, Blotches and Sores, Ery
sipelas, Hose or St. Anthony's Fire, Salt
Rheum, Scald Head, Coughs from tu
berculous deposits in the lungs, White
Swellings, Debility, Dropsy, Neuralgia,
Dyspepsia or Indigestion, Syphilis and
Syphilitic Infections, Mercurial Diseases,
Female Weaknesses, and, indeed, the whole
series of complaints that arise from impurity
of the blood. Minute reports of individual
cases may be found in AYER'S AMERICAN
ALMANAC, which is furnished to the druggists
for gratuitous distribution, wherein may be
learned the directions for its use, and some of
the remarkable cures which it has made when
nil other remedies had failed to afford relief.
Those cxscs are purposely taken from all sec
tions of the country, in order that every reader
mav have access to some one who can speak to
him of its benefits from personal experience.
Scrofula depresses the vital energies, and thus
leaves its victims far more subject to disease
and its fatal results than are healthy constitu
tions. Hence it tends to shorten, and does
greatly shorten, the average duration of human
life. The vast importance of these considera
tions has led us to spend years in perfecting a
remedy which is adequate to its cure. This
we now offer to the public under the name of
AYER'S SARSAVARILLA, although it is com
posed of ingredients, some of which exceed the
best of Sars iparilla in alterative power. By
its aid you may protect yourself from the suffer
ing and danger of these disorders. Purge out
the foul corruptions that rot and fester in the
blood; purge out the causes of disease, and
vigorous health will follow. By its peculiar
virtues this remedy stimulates the vital func
tions, and thus expels the distempers which
iurk within the system or burst out im any
part of it.
We know the public have been deceived tv
many compounds of Sarsaparilla, that promise
much and did nothing; but they will neither
deceived nor disappointed in this. Its Tirfae
have been proven by abundant trial, and there
remains no question of its surpassing excellence
for the cure of the afflictiug diseases it is in
tended to reach. Although under the same
name, it is a very different medicine from any
other which has been before the people, and is
far more effectual than any other which has
ever been available to them.
Tho World's Great Remedy for
Coughs, Colds, Incipient Con
sumption, and for the relief
of Consumptive pattents
in advanced stages
of the disease.
This has been so long used and so univer
sally known, that wc need do no more thun
assure the public that its quality is kept up to
the lest it ever has been, and that it may be
relied on to do all it has ever done.
