The No-Fence Law.
There is a growing disposition iu this
State to do aw ay with fences. That being
the case some facts relative to the working
of such a law elsewhere may be of interest.
The Farmers' Advocate says that the law
in New York State is so entirely satisfac
tory that the fanner would not willingly
submit to the penalty of having his crops
destroyed by what are called road cattle, to
put himself to the expense and often great
inconvenience of building a barrier of pre
scribed strength and stature for the proper
fencing out of somebody else’s cattle. He
may have no cattle himself, or wish to have
his land on the front of his premises cum
bered with a fence; but, for the want of a
proper herd law to protect him, his crops,
or his lawn, or his garden, may be destroyed
by a neighbor’s cow, without redress, unless,
forsooth, he can prove that he had provided
a good legal fence for that neighbor’s cow
and used proper precautions to keep her
But now, seeing how well we do under
our present herd law and how much every
one is pleased with it, there is not a New
York State man who would willingly sub
mit to the expense, care and vexation of
guarding his premises against road cattle.
The way this absurd old practice came to
be handed down to us was like this: The
first settlers, whether in the woods or on the
prairie, would fence around their first clear
ing or improvement, but let the stock run
at large. This continuing until all the land
came under improvement left stock
was running at large to be on the public
roads, and every farmer was obliged to
fence against them to save his crops. It
was well known, too, that these road cattle
learned to be very shrewd in opening gates
or in slyly slipping through gaps, or in
jumping fences, to feed on and destroy gar
dens and crops.
After adopting the new herd law here, a
few farmers who would dare to do it, threw
open their gates and let Sown their bars and
fence gaps, and finding this to be perfectly
safe, as there were no cattle or hogs in the
streets, they finally, as occasion required,*
would remove their street fences altogether,
and withal, would be very agreeably sur
prised to find that their gardens, crops or
premises would all rest much more secure,
even thrown open to the roads than they
formerly could with the best of fencing.
This is coming to be so well understood
now throughout the country, towns and
cities, that the front and road fences are
being removed to a great extent throughout
Many costly and good ones are taken
away, others that were old and poor are
cleared off, and the ground made available
for mowing or for crops, and the premises
look much the better of it; for, in fact, all
fencing that is not needed is only a nuisance
that should not be tolerated or allowed to
encumber one’s premises. The face of na
ture or the landscape looks the better if un
obstructed by a fence, and can better take
care of itself, too, for any fence is a harbor
for foul growths and for vermin, and causes
drifts to obstruct travel or smother crops,
so much so that for all the fencing needed
on the farm, as far as possible I would use
portable fences, which could be removed
when not needed and either put under shel
ter until wante 1 another season or used for
fencing another lot in the rotation course.
Before adopting our present cattle law it
was only a few of the most enterprising
farmers that would dress and keep the road
sides along the farm front free of foul
growths and in good trim, or w#uld have
the courage to plant shade trees along the
highways, when, after much staking and
guarding, they were so liable to be destroyed
by these street cattle. But with our pres
ent law all this is changed, and for the bet
ter, and now many farmers, after first re
moving a road fence, extend the field tillage
and crops out to the centre of the road or
to the wagon tracks, and these, whatever
they be, are seldom disturbed in the least,
but harvested with the rest; the ground
seeded to gr '• and clover to be mowed by
machine the ftV-rwing year.
Virginia Cured Hams.
Mr. M. W. Earley, of Hardwickville,
Va., in a letter to ths HotM and Farm,
says: There are two things on which we
Virginians especially pique ourselves—our
blue blood and our home-cured hams. In
these two respects we are willing to yield
the precedence to none and the world at
large acknowledges our excellence in the
latter, if not in the former respect, as is
proved by the fact tliut the outside demand
for Virginia cured hams is so great that
Virginians themselves, living in cities, often
have great difficulty in procuring thesp deli
Virginia farmers generally allow their
hogs to range in the pasture and forest,
grazing and feeding on m s.i until the au
tumn, when they put the up and feed them
on corn six or eight weeks. A hog a year
old and weighing about ]SO pounds makes
the best meat. If it is older and fatter the
meat will not be so delicately favored. The
following is an old Virginia recipe for salt
ing and curing hams, and the same direc
tions will apply to shoulders:
First, rub a teaspoonful of powdered salt
petre Into each ham to give them a pretty
red color; then mix with every four pounds
of salt a pound of brown sugar, a pint of
molasses and a teacup of ground black pep
per. Rub this mixture thoroughly into the
hams with something stiff, as for instance,
a leather glove or a shoe sole; then pack the
hams in a large box with the skin side down
ward, and let them remain there four weeks,
if the weather be only moderately cold, but
six weeks if it be very cold, as in this case
the salt will tako longer to strike in. When
you take the hams out of the bulk nib them
with hickory ashes and pack them away
again to remain two weeks longer. Then
take them out, hang them in your smoke
house and smoke them for about six weeks
with a smouldering Are made of green hick
ory chips. The fire must never be allowed
to blaze nor must the meat be hung too close
to it. I may add that it is possible to have
very good hams without smoking them.
Nowadays most farmers kill hogs on so
small a scalo that many of them do not at
tempt to have a smoke-house, and they have
discovered that they can have very well fla
vored meat without one.
In regard to the treatment of hams after
the smoking process is over there is a differ
ence of opinion among housekeepers. Some
say pack away the hams in hickory ashes
till the following autumn; others say nib
t hem thoroughly in March with black pep
per, aud that this will protect them equally
as well from insects as the hickory ashes.
If you pursue the latter plan you can hang
them up. Borne persons cover their hams
with cotton bags, stiffly starched, to keep
off insects. Borne few persons cure their
hams in brine to which they aid sugar, mo
lasses, saltpetre and black pepper, but I
think the dry mode is the best.
Many things have to converge in order
for us to have ham iu perfection. Not only
must the hog be fed on food that will give
its meat a delicate flavor, but it must be
cured and finally cooked with the utmost
care. If all these requisites are combined
the ham will indeed be
“A dainty dish to set before a King."
A ham should be washed, scraped and
suuned tlio day liefore you are going to boil
it. At night put it in soak and let it remain
till morning. If it is medium size let it boil
slowly four or five hours. If it is large let
it boil about six hours. Always put it on
in cold water. Nothing but soup meat
ought ever to be put on in hot water, and
we make this difference because it is then
our object to get the juices out of the meat
into the liquid, whereas with a ham the re
verse is the case. Do not take the ham out
of the boiler after it is done, but let it re
main there until cold and you will find its
flavor greatly enhanced thereby. The phi
losophy of the matter is this: The ham gives
out a considerable part of its juices in cook
ing, but it will re-absorb them if left until
cold in the water in which it was boiled. If
you want the ham to look especially nice it
is best to skin it, but it will keep its moist
ure and flavor better with the skin on. If
you skin it grate stale bread crumbs over it
or crackers browned before being grated.
Crab apple or grape jelly goes nicely with
ham. and horse-radish is also a nice condi
ment to serve with it. Curled'parsley makes
a dish of ham. A good housekeeper of my
acquaintance raises a box of curled parsley
in her pit in winter so she may have a gar
nish for her dishes of ham at that season.
Any dish is doubly appetizing when served
in an attractive manner.
Something About Dairying.
The Philadelphia Record, which has about
the most interesting agricultural depart
ment of any paper in the country, says that
the main object of dairying should be to
save all that if uot appropriated by the
stock for the production of beef, veal, milk
or butter, and in order to do this they must
use the manure to produce food another
year. Thus, under general farming, the
dairy and crop-growing are joint occupa
tions, the one dependent on the other. There
are hundreds of farmers who have gradu
ally grown wealthy at dairying, though
they really derive but little more from the
milk and butter sold than the amount ex
pendedjfor food, as property all crops grown
and consumed by the stock should be charged
to them; but the farmer’s increase of wealth
is in the improvement of his farm. If he do
not derive large profits from his sales his
land will be gradually growing in fertility
and its value increasing. This is a feature
of dairying that is often overlooked. The
manure does not receive that consideration
it deserves, but it is equal to a certain
amount of expenditure mads upon the
farm and always returns more than its
equivalent. Where butter is the principal
product sold off the farm the loss of fer
tilizing matter in the butter is almost noth
ing, it consisting mostly of carbon, which
is not a valuable element of the soil, and
which is supplied to plants by the air. This
is to infer, however, that the skim milk is
fed to pigs and sold as pork, in which shape
it realizes a higher price. When crops are
grown and sold off the farm, as is the case
in wheat-growing, there is a constant drain
of nitrogen, potash and phosphoric acid,
which must bo annually replaced, or the
farm will in a few years be incapable of
longer producing such crops; but when food
is purchased and fed to the dairy cows it is
equivalent to the purchasing of the fertil
izers also, as the whole remains on the farm,
in the shape of manure, unless sold as milk,
beef or veal, the feeding of pigs, however,
being an additional occupation. The science
of farming consists in combining all occu
pations of that character with a view to
enriching the farm and gradually increas
ing the yield until the fullest capacity be
The Peach Orchard.
Mr. C. C. L. Dill, of Dillburgh, Ala., in
a letter to Home and Farm, speaking with
regard to peach orchards, says that land
high and rolling is the best fer this fruit,
and a hill with one side facing the south, the
other the north, and a flat top sufficient for
a few row's of trees, is the best location and
one that will insure a crop every yea; - . If
.the land is fresh or of fair fertility no ma
nure will be needed, exceDt under and around
the tree, and for this purpose a compost of
one part of unleached ashes and three parts
of muck, leaf mold, rotten wood or top soil
from the woods will be as good as any fer
tilizer that I know of, but if the land is poor
it should have a coating of well-rotted ma
nure. If ashes cannot be obtained, pine
straw, which is rich in potash, will answer
the purpose if plowed under in sufficient
quantity. The plow must run deep and if
subsoiled so much the better; and after
plowing the soil should be thoroughly pul
verized with the harrow and then laid ofl
in rows 16 feet each way. By using a twister
and turning the furrows out a good place
will be left for the tree without using either
spade or hoe. The worst place to set a tree
is in a hole just large enough to hold the
roots with a good deal of crowding and tbo
balance of the ground as hard as a brick.
The orchard should bo cultivated in a hand
crop, say cotton, until it commences to bear,
and then sown in rye, on which hogs may
run until the rye is in the boot, when it
should be turned under and the ground sown
in cowpeas. Ono of the best varieties for
this purpose is “the little stranger,” a pea
that re-seeds itself mid will remain for years,
I may say always, unless special pains are
taken to exterminate it. Trees should be
cut back so as to branch not more than two
or three feet from the ground. This has
two advantages; low-branching trees shade
the ground lletter and prevent plowing too
close to them. A peach orchard should be
plowed once or twice a year until 10 to 15
years old, when the trees will so shade the
ground that no weeds will come up to injure
it. A heavy mulching with pine straw will
increase the growth of the trees, prevent
too early blooming and protect them from
the drouth of summer.
No Living by Crops Alone.
He is not the best farmer, says the New
York Tvibune, who realizes the most money
from a given number of acres, but ho who,
while producing the largest crops possible
with the facilities at hand, does not fail to
keep everything trim and attractive—the
house and grounds in order, fences in good
condition (those around the house pointed
or whitewashed), the yard covered with
turf, dotted with trees and shrubbery; the

back yard as neat as the front, not a single
corner for rubbish; the kitchen garden free
from weeds and full of every vegetable in
its seasou. In the household everything
that tends to the comfort of tho family will
lie at hand. At the barn everything can l>e
in place; no loose boards and litter about
the yard, no holes of dirty water, no imple
ments wanting in the weather. A good
farmer will be ambitious to have a good
road by his premises; even gratis labor will
e given to this end. In many places trees
can be planted along the way and neatly
trimmed hedges take tho place of unsightly
zigzag fences. The roadsido will be mowed
in proper season, thus destroying weeds and
keeping along the border a plot of nice green
grass. Thus in everything pertaining to the
farm the farmer will not only keep before
his mind the profit to be derived, but will
often be content with less money in order
that the love for the beautiful and good
may be cultivated and the highest type of
manhood developed by the side of great
crops of grain and herds of fine stock.
