HOUSE, FARM AND GARDEN.
We Invite cwnmiinlditlons from nil person who are
liitiTcKlnl lu matters properly boloiwlUK lo tills de
partment. Value of the Earth-Vorm.
The common earth-worm, though apt
to be despised and trodden on, Is really a
useful creature In Its way. Mr. Knapp
describes It ns the natural manurer of
the soil, consuming on the surface the
softer part of decayed vegetable matters,
nnd conveying downwards the more
woody fibres, which there molder and
fertilize. They perforate the earth In all
directions, thus rendering It permeable
by air and water, both Indispensable to
vegetable life. According to Mr. Dar
win's mode of expression, they give a
kind of under tillage to the land, per
forming the same below ground that the
spade does above for the garden, and the
plow for arable soil. It Is, in conse
quence, chiefly of the natural operations
of worms that fields which have been
overspread with lime, burnt marl, or
cinders, become, In process of time,
covered by a finely-divided soil, fitted
for the support of vegetation. This
result, though usually attributed by
farmers to the "working down" of these
materials, Is really due to the action of
earth-worms, as may be seen In the
innumerable casts of which the Initial
soil consists. These are obviously pro
duced by the digestive proceedings of
the worms, which take into their In
testinal canal a large quantity of the
soil lu which they feed and burrow, and
then reject In the form of the so-called
casts. "In this manner," says Mr.
Darwin, "a field manured with marl
has been covered, in the course of 80
years, with a bed of earth averaging 13
inches in thickness." Encyclopoedla
No doubt chickens are more fond of
live maggots, ants,bugsaud worms than
any mice-meat you may make for them
of beeves' hearts and livers, or sheeps'
plucks. Never do chicks thrive better
than when following a hard-scratching
mother-hen, said hen having free access
to a dung-hill of some standing, as to
age, and being well ekposed to the Hies.
A few maggots each day seem to give a
peculiar smartness to the chicks, and
evidently give strength and promote
health. We have read somewhere- of a
system for producing this food by placing
in pits layers of straw, horse-manure
and a sprinkling of yeast, mashed pota
toes and Indian meal, covering all with
soil one inch thick.
The muck-fly is said to lay live hun
dred millions of eggs ( who counted
'em V) in a season. She enters this pit,
and in nine days, lo and behold I the
mass is filled with chicken-food of the
best quality. It is pleasanter and handler
to provide tne animai-ioou irom me
shambles, boll it and chop It fine, but
an insect-diet is, nevertheless, a good
dish to be sought, and we think may be

a little time and patience are used, and
the materials are at hand. Ex.
Some flock-masters have adopted the
erroneous and Injurious practice of not
weaning, or rather depending on the
mother to wean the lamb. This practice
will not hurt the lamb, but will keep the
mother poor, and she will be likely to
fail to have a lamb the coming' season,
or If she does she will be so weak that
great risk will be run in wintering her.
The better plan is to wean the lamb at
about three months of age, and if any
are small then give them extra attention
in the fall and early winter, and little
risk will be run in wintering them. We
have always found it best to wean our
lambs on the range they have been in
the habit of grazing over with their
mothers. They will be more contented,
and by putting in with them a few dry
ewes, will soon lean to herd and can be
managed with ease. But be sure to give
them the advantage of good fresh feed,
bo soon as they have forgotten their
mother ; don't let them lose their lamb's
flesh, and there will be no difficulty in
wintering them. Exchange.
A Woman's Sphere.
As house-mistresses and as mothers,
women have duties to perform quite as
important in their results, if not so ex
tensive in their area, as any that full to
the lot of men. As the former, the
comfort and happiness of a greater or
less number of people depends principal
ly on them ; as the latter, they influence
and mold the future generation, and so
are the ultimate sources whence flow the
currant of events, and the creators of
the characters In which history is to be
written. But for the most part they
enter on these Important duties with no
preparation that can be called serious or
sufficient, and act as if knowledge comes
by the grace of nature.
