Work on the Farm.
On a well-managed farm, says the ffnicri
can Agriculturist , there should never lie a
time when it may be said there is nothing
to be done. A ship captain, who is a good
disciplinarian, when all other work fails,
on a long voyage, has the anchors polished.
What the anchor is in this respect to the
ship's commander the hoe is to the prosper
ous farmer. To keep that implement bright
bv cutting down weeds differs from polish
ing the anchor, as it is useful work. A
friend about to address a farmers’ club, a
short time ago, asked us what he should
talk about. “'Weeds,” was the reply. “If
you do not know enough about the injury
weeds do the farmer, talk about their.bene
cial effects." “Beneficial?’ “Tell that to
the boy who, on a hot August day, is at
work in a cornfield.” “Just the place of all
others whore the weeds, or rather the killing
of them, should be recognized as useful ”
“How so!” We cut down weeds primarily
that they may not rob the crop of a share
of its food, but one who properly uses the
hoe cuts over the entire surface of the soil
in such a manner as to leave a light layer of
it upon the surface. This light, fine soil is
of the greatest benefit as a mulch; in pre
venting evaporation < moisture from be
low it helps the crop; nearly as much as
does the cutting away the robber weeds,
and, moreover, this layer of light soil quickly
cools at night and condenses the dew within
its pores, which greatly benefits the crop.
Root crops should be worked until the
spread of tho leaves interferes with the hoe.
White turnips, sown early this month, will
make a good crop to feed early. Rye, near
cities, where there is always a demand for
straw, is often a profitable crop, even on
poorish soils, but it will pay to use some
good fertilizer. Potatoes should be dug as
soon as the vines stop growing. If a moist
spell comes after growth ceases, “supertu
beration” will take place. This is a long
word which English writers use to say that
the tubers start anew, and small tubers are
produced upon the larger ones and thus in
jure the crop. Do not allow potatoes to lie
exposed to the sun any longer than is neoded
to dry them.
Mistakes of Orchardists.
Mr. D. T. True, in a paper which he read
before the Maine Pomological Society, says
thatone of the most>common mistakes marie
by some of the best orchardists is in having
too many varieties, making more work in
harvesting and not so desirable. In some
cases a number of varieties have been placed
in one tree. This is one of the worst mis
takes. Different locations require different
varieties to get the best results. Big mis
takes in the selection of varieties have been
made. One of the great questions with the
orchardist is, what is the most profitable
variety to grow and meet the wants of the
present and future market? Mistakes are
quite common in the distance of planting
out trees. This question is largely one of
circumstances. If one has more land than
money, it may be best not to set so near.
Where land'is more costly trees may be set
twice as thick as neoded, and when the
trees cover the land one-half of them may
One of the saddest of mistakes is where
one puts trees in old worn-out grass fields
and wholly neglects them and expects to
raise an orchard. All such cases end in
miserable failure. Another mistake is in
placing mulch so near the trunk of a tree
and in such quantity that it will heat and
kill the tree. The writer can testify to the
loss of fifty valuable trees killed in this
Losses may occur from mice and the borer.
Some have had whole orchards destroyed
by one or both of these enemies. Careful
pruning is necessary, but some have made
bad mistakes in this direction; the leaves are
to the tree what the lungs are to the body.
Extreme cutting should bo avoided.
In grafting, orchards in some cases have
been nearly ruined by sawing too large
limbs or hubs, setting poor scions, grafting
limbs in the centre of the tree, using poor
wax, neglecting to look after the scions
after the work has been performed. These
have been the cause of much damage.
Turning sheep and lambs into a young or
chard without taking the precaution to coat
the trunks of the trees with manure has
caused a big loss in some cases. Oxen and
large cattle have proved very fatal to young
trees when turned into the orchard. Allow
ing trees to overbear and break themselves
down is a mistake. Thin the fruit but do
not prop the limb.
If one has dwarf pears, as the quince root
is fibrous, do not let the ground remain in
grass; if you do you will make a mistake,
faying big prices for new varieties has in
some cases proved a mistake.
Barren Pear Tree.
A correspondent of the Southern Live,
Stock Journal says: In 1888 to 1840 one of
my pear trees, eight or ten years, had never
borne a flower. I selected a limb perhaps
two inches in diameter and took out a ring
of bark full one-hulf inch, near the main
stem of the tree, carefully cutting only
through the bark; done in Mayor June,
next spring an abundance of bjpora. Suc
ceeding year I had a trench dug all around,
about three feet from the tree, cutting oif
nil roots with a well shari>ened spade. Filled
up, adding manure to the clay as thrown in.
This checked the flow of saw and making
wood and fruit the result.
Our article some time since in regard to
bringing an old barren pear tree on our
farm to bearing has called forth manyothor
articles of like import. It is a very com
mon tiling for pear trees in the South to be
barren, and this remedy should be gene
rally known. It may not succeed in all
cases, but it may bring trees to fruiting in
a great many cases. Those who have light
upon this subject should let it shine through
the public journals. The fruit on our old
pear tree is increasing in size but not yet
Prof. Magnard, of the Massachusetts Ag
ricultural College, has some light on bearing
fruit trees, lie says: There are two meth
ods by which young fruit trees may be made
to bear: 1. If they are in a healthy and vig
orous condition, by seoding down the land
and using only fertiliser containing a large
)ier cent, of phosphoric acid and some pot
ash, such as equal measure of bone meal
and unleached wood asbee. 2. By girdling
ths main branches; till* method requires
considerable courage but if properly done
no bad result will he noticed. It is per
formed in June while the < bark will “peel"
readily, by taking out a ring of bark from
the main branches alout a quarter of, an
inch in width. Care must t* taken that the
soft cambium or minor layer is not injured.
Performed in June of this season a good
crop will follow next year, but to prevent
injury to the trees by overbearing, a liberal
supply of plant food must be applied next
A Remedy for Scale.
The Stockton (Cal.) Mail says that a suc
cessful remedy for the scale bugs on fruit
trees has been prepared by A. T. Coveil,
Chairman of the Board of Supervisors of
Fresno county. He used it on his peach
trees last spring when they were budding
out, and the result was a fine crop of
peaches. The new hranches grown since
the remedy was applied are bright and free
from scale. The old branches and bodies of
the trees were so badly damaged by the
scale bugs that the new growth of limbs on
many of the trees has the appearance of
coming from almost dead bodies. The old
scale-poisoned bark is now peeling off, leav
ing anew and healthy bark under it. Mr.
Coveil’s remedy is 50 pounds of unslackod
lime, ‘JO pounds of French sulphur and 15
pounds of salt, prepared as follows: Place
10 pounds of lime and 30 pounds of sulphur
in a heater with 30 gallons of water. Boil
for half an hour or more until both lime
and sulphur aro dissolved. The sulphur
must be thoroughly dissolved and mixed
with the lime; the mixture will be of an
amber color. Next place in a box or cask
40 pounds of good lime and pour upon it
enough soft hot water to thoroughly slacken
the lime and keep it in a liquid form. After
the lime is thoroughly slacked add 15 pounds
common salt while the material is hot.
When the salt is dissolved mix the two lots
together with sufficient water to make (10
gallons of spraying material, which will
then be a thin whitewash. The material
should be strained after being thoroughly
mixed—a good piece of burlap answering
well for the purpose. Apply the mixture
with a spray pump, using a rubber plate in
the nozzle instead of the brass plate. The
rubber plate must be cut from bliwks of
pure rubber, or nearly so, and not from a
cotton mixture; it may be cut from the
blocks used where buggy shafts connect
with the axle. It should be cut evenly and
about one-tenth of an inch thick, with a
very small incision made in the center with
a flat owl or sharp-pointed knife, the awl
being the best as it makes an even hole,
which prevents the spray from going to one
side. The rubber plate will permit any
small article to be forced through the hole
in it, as it will expand and thus save the
time of cleansing out a brass plate. Apply
the material rain or cold. Care should be
taken to wet every part of the tree; and for
the body of the tree hold the nozzle close to
the bark, to force the liquid into all the
Replying to a query in the Country Gen
tleman Mr, Henry Stewart says the making
of butter in the Southern States is a diffi
cult business, even with the best of appli
ances, and impossible without ice at least
for the production of a good quality. Soft
butter cannot be made up in good condi
tion, and the heat of the climate in summer
precludes the making of choice quality with
out effective arrangements for keeping the
right temperature. Unless the milk and
cream are keptjcool the butter will be soft
and of poor quality, consequently the dairy
must be so arranged as to keep the milk and
cream at about 60 degrees. An underground
dairy-house might 'be used, made in the
manner of a subcellar, lined with stone or
brick and whitewashed with lime.
A half underground building should be
placed over the cellar, and in this the churn
ing may be done. Ice must be used and the
very best of dairy appliances. A rectan
gular or other revolving churn, or one of
the best dash churns should be used. The
cream should be churned no longer than to
procure the butter in a fine granular condi
tion, and as soon as it has come the butter
milk should be drawn off and water, with
some broken ice in it to reduce it to 50 de
grees, or even 45 degrees, should be turned
in and the churn revolved to free the butter
from the buttermilk.
The butter will then bo hard enough for
salting, and when saltod may be put away
in the subcellar to stand for 24 hours before
it is worked and packed, or if the butter is
saturated with clear cold brine after it is
entirely freed from the buttermilk it may
be packed at once'and placed in the sub
cellar to be kept cool.
Bummer dairying in tho South is no doubt
accompanied by considerable trouble, but
every difficulty can be surmounted by the
judicious use of ice, which will not cause
any injury to the butter. Winter dairying
is far less laborious and more satisfactory,
but requires special facilities and arrange
ments which few Southern farmers can have
or make without considerable change in
Grape-water Ice.—Grape-water ice is
in season and is delicious. Take the juice
of four lemons, half a pint of water, one
pint of sugar, two glasses of grape juice;
mix these well, strain and freeze.
French Mustard.— Slice an onion in a
bowl and cover with 'good vinegar; after
two (lavs pour off the vinegar, add to it a
teaspoonful of cayenne pepper, a teaspoon
ful of salt, a tablespoonful of sugar and
mustard enough to thicken ; set on a stove
until it boils. When cold it is fit for use.
Ego Plant. Fried. —Cut the refutable
into slices one-quarter of an inch thick,
without removing the skin. Sprinkle salt
over each slice anu return tho slices to their
original shape; press gently to extract tho
juice, then drain and peel, dip them in tgg,
roll them ih bread crumbs and fry in plenty
of hot fat.
Peach Cake.—Bake three sheet* of sponge
cake as for jelly cake; cut nice ripe peaches
in thin slices; prepare cream by whipping,
sweetening ana adding flavor of vanilla, if
desired; put layers of peaches between the
sheets of cake; pour cream over each layer
and over tho top. To be eaten soon after it
Pudding Hauce.—Arrow-root sauce for
bread or riee puddings is made of two tea
spoonfuls of arrow root, the juice of one
lemon, a little grated nutmeg, half a pint
of water, and sugar to the taste. Wot the
arrow root with the water, stir it until it is
smooth, add the other ingredients and let it
all come to a boil.
Delicious Breakfast.—Fry several
slices of salt pork to a crisp brown. Then
take five or six large potatoes, naro and slice
them, drop them in the hot pork gravy, turn
them on both sides to brown, pour over them
three well-beaten eggs. Stir the whole gently
to equalize tho portions of egg. Then eat
and tie happy.
Pickled Peaches.— Make a syrup of two
pounds of sugHr to one quart of good vine
gar. Put into a little muslin hag otic table
spoonful of each kind of spice, tie tightly
and put it Into the vinegar and sugar. l*re
para the peaches as for canning awl cook
them In the syrup until they are tender but
not too soft; then place them in the jar and
.pour over thain tho hot syrup. Put the
sptoe-bag into the jar with the peaches

toss them together. Tut in them a little
grated lemon lieel, then the sugar, and (lirt
well with an egg whisk. Stir in the flour
with a wooden spoon and put tho mixture
in small patty-pans to bake, with silted su
gar to glaze, sprinkled over the top.
Peach Shortcake.—The cake is made of
one pint of flour, one teaspoonful of baking
powder, one saltspoonful of salt and two
tablespoonfuls of sugar passed tlirough a
sieve, and then mixed with four tablaspoon
fuls of butter. When thoroughly mixed
moisten with one teacupful of milk. Bake
in two deep pie plates in a quick oven. Have
the peaches ptxmxl and cut in slices. As soon
as the cakes aro done cut them in halves,
butter them and arrange the slices of peaches
between the pieces, sprinkling with sugar.
Serve warm with cream.
Prepared Pears.—At this time of the
year a good many families have such quan
tities of ripened pears that they can neither
eat nor profitably dispose of them. A lady
who has tried it finds in this an excellent
use to make of them: Cut them in thick
slices, stew them, and then, in an open oven,
dry them thoroughly, if it takes two days.
They come out all honeyed over with their
own sweetness, and fig-like in their sub
stance and consistency, at once suggesting
both raisins and figs. And yet they are ex
cellent eating, far finer than any one would
beliove without trying. They will keep, it
is said, a year or two.
Farm and Stock Notes.
A cow in milk should never bo driven
faster than a walk. Good cows have large
and well-filled udders, which cause pain to
them if they are hurried or driven on a run.

Fine manure for crops is more valuable
than coarse. Hens can break up manure
better, perhaps, than any one of the machines
invented for the purpose. Scatter some wheat
over the pile and turn them on.
The fall is an excellent time for sowing
blue grass, about 10 pounds of seed being
sufficient for an acre. The ground should
be well prepared, manured and harrowed
and tho seed evenly broadcasted.
As soon as a crop is taken off the firs*
duty is to go over the field and cut down all
the weeds in order to preVent them from
seeding. Every weed destroyed before it
seeds will save labor next season.
The original stock of the beet occurs wild
on the shores of the Mediterranean sea, In
Greece, and grows wild ill some of the islands

A practical farmer says that in setting
posts where great solidity is required he uses
gravel and small stones to fill around the
posts and then runs in thin water-lime mor
tar, thus virtually imbedding the post in
rock, preventing decay and insuring solidity.

bred extensively in West Virginia and Penn
sylvania. They yield delaine wool and tho

The value of the hen manure from a single
bird for one year has been estimated at 15c.
At this rate the total value of the manure
from all the poultry in the country in 1880
would be $19,000,000. Tho total value of
the fertilizers manufactured during tho same
year was $33,050,795.
A New York horticultural society decided
that hogs aro the most economical manuro
makers in cases where the owners have tight
pens, and where refuse vegetable matter

sod, forest leaves, etc., is thrown in for tho
animals to eat and trample on.
Any animal giving milk requires fre
quent watering. While many cows in win

will in summer require water three times—
morning, noon and night—and drink heart

is better for standing where it will be nearly
jiotatoes that are in the least man

w;y>te of labor to attempt to keep them. A
temperature ranging between 60' and 70” is
correct, and only the best and smoothest
potatoes should be stored. If kept in a
proper place, where the temperature is even
throughout the winter, it is only necessary
to put the potatoes in flour barrels and to
keep them dry.
Mr. Crozier, of the Department of Agri
culture, tells the Country Gentleman that
he has found a field of Bermuda grass with
heads well filled with ripe seed, on stony,
sandy soil on the bank of the Potomac, 30
miles below Washington. Of over 500 an

the Commissioner of Agriculture to farmers
in the South, asking whether Bermuda had
been known to seed, less than a dozen replied
that they had found seed, but always in
