j ANIMAL FOOD.
We may argue . as much as we please
against the use of pork, it will continue
to be the favorite animal food with all
persons who perform much hard, out-door
work, especially in our cold winters.
One pound of fat is equivalent, as a
heat producer, to two and a half pounds
of starch or sugar, and so far as this is
the object of eating animal food, good
firm pork is the cheapest meat that we
can use. But a farmer who uses his
brain as well as his muscle needs some
thing more than fat pork. For what sin
is he who raises denied the use of beef,
or mutton , or poultry ? In the summer,
without an ice house, it is difficult to
keep fresh meat. Not so in the winter.
But if it were true, it would only prove
that you do not work as hard or as intel
ligently as a farmer should. If you
spend two or three hours these short days
talking at the Corners, it is perhaps true
that you cannot afford to eat beef. You
do not deserve salt pork. Two hours
work will pay for a good beaftteak, and
that, properly cooked, will enable you to
work harder, and think as well as work-
and it is thoughful work that tells. At
any rate a farmer can have mutton when
a pretty good sheep can be bought for
SI 75, and the pelt worth half the money.
When thousands of sheep are boiled
down for tallow, and the rest fed to swine,
the farmer who sells them might, one
would think, afford to eat a little mutton
occasionally, and the children, instead of
rye coffee, might have a basin of soup
for breakfast that would send, them on
the run to school these zero mornings
puffing and blowing off steam like a
locomotive. -Harris in Am. Agricul
ACCOUNTS WITH THE FARM.
There is no farmer who has tried the
practice of keeping accurate accounts
with his farm, who has not been bent
fitted thereby. By carefully entering in
the account book every item of income
and expenditure, the farmer not only
enables himself to sec, at all timss, his
financial condition, ' but the practice
fosters an economy and regularity which
must necessarily be attended with the
Few men would make engagements if
they knew at the time they would bo
unable to meet them but keeping no ac
count, 03 is the general rule with farmers
-they have no accurate idea of their
income and expenditure, and ia their
natural hopefulness, they contract engage
ments beyond their income, and the re
sult is disappointment to the creditor and
disaster to the farmer.
In view of the obvious advantages of
the practice, we earnestly urge every
farmer to provide himself with a woll-
bouud book, and commence to carefully
and accurately enter every item of receipt
and expenditure connected with his farm
operations, striking a balance at the end
of each year. In connection with this
farm account, should be kept a journal
of the farm, in which should be noted
every event of the farm, such as the com
mencement of plowing, the time of plant
ing, cultivating and harvesting the several
crops; the timo of planting trees with
their varieties, etc., a journal of the
stock not being neglected. Give the
practice a fair trial, and you will never
abandon it. Southern Buralist.
difference in egos.
Though most farmers keep fowls, and
raise their owu eggs, there are many who
have not learned the difference there is
in the richness and flavor of eggs pro
duced by well-fed hens, and those from
birds that have been half-starved through
our winters. There will be some differ
ence in the ize, bui fair more ' In ' the
quality. Tho yolk of one will be large,
fine colored, and of good subsistence, and
the albumen or white clear and pure;
whilo the contents of the other will be
watery and meagre, for lack in the parent
fowl to carry out and complete tho. work
nature had sketched. In order there
fore to have good eggs the fowls should
be well fed and, also provided during
the months they are unable to come to
the ground " with a box containing an
abundance of fine gravel that , they may
be able to grind and prepare their food
for digestion. Of eggs," those from the
domestic hen are decidedly the best; but
those of ducks and geese may be used
for some ot the purposes of domestic
cookery. S ' V-1
