Wheat and other Gmn Stored on tije best of Terms by
San Francisco Bulletin fays: Par
ties require money to ?arry On their
campsigus. Bat the legitimate meth
od 6T expenditure embrace only a
few hems the hire of halls, the
wages of preambulatrng spouters,
paper for ballots. The anount nec
essary ior these 1'urj o s ought not
to be very large. One. off them could
at least be omiVed the expese of
the itinerant statesmen. This class
of politicians is merely a survival.
No one hears anything from the
persons composing ii but what has
already appeared in the pewspaiwrs
or and over again. The steam
press and the telegraph have wholly
superseded them. But for all that
they frequently put on all the airs of
Cays and Websters. It is passible
to hear them claiming the glory of
carraying elections, whou as a matter
of fact they had about as much to do
in that movement as the fly on the
wheel had in raising the dust that
was obscuring the vision.
With the elimination of these use
less hangers-on the expense would
be very light. Ot course, the candi
date for office is expeetid to show
himself to the people and lay before
tin-in bis views. lint it is not so easy
to say ho iv the funds, small though
lliey may be, necessary for these ob
jects shall be raised. If the candi-d:i'e-
have to jny the expense of
g Ming into office can it be rendered
much greater than whit the office
itself will yield. But a way could
be found easily enough if only a
small mm had to be obtained. The
difficulty is that the parly managers
p'undi r li e candidates and the office
holders. There is no very rigid ac
counting of how expenditures are
made. It is not well for the con
tribulor to be too inquisitive. The
conventional answer is that it will
not do to devulge. There aro here
all the elements of a confidence game,
and the indications are that that is
often the kind of operation that is
carried on. Few but those in the
inner circle know how much is raised,
or how it was disbursed. It is not a
veiy violent presumption that much
of it sticks to the hands of the party
bosses. Many of them have grown
rich in the business.

CABS OF LIVE STOCK FOR JULY.
A sheet of cotton cloth is a great
protection to horses, screening them
from flies, dust and heat, while work
ing in the harvest field. Esp-cial
care must be taken in keeping the
horses clean. An occasional washing
with a soft sponge and carboiic soap
cleans and cools the skin, aids perspi
ration, drives away the flies, and is
in every way healthful and refreshing.
Horses may. be given a bath in a
stream at evening, provided they are
not warm from work, and are not kept
in the water more than a few min
utes. If the horses, are at pasture at
night, they need a good, generous
feed before being turned out. When
kept iu the stalls, a mesa of green fod
der may be given daily.
During the hot weather, cows suf
fer if kept in a shude'ess pasture. A
cool, dark and clean stable is, much
preferred by them. They need an
abundance of pure water, a plenty of
nutritious food, and should be kept as
comfortable as possible. j
Sheep that' are intended for the
bntcher need to be pushed forward
with liberal feeding. A quart of
mixed ground feed to each animal
daily, with the pasturage, will bring
them quickly into good shape' for
the market.' S

remove the sick animals to a cool

Should maggots be found upon the
sheep, tar may be applied to the af
fected parts. Look well to the flock

THE BUCKWHEAT C0r.
Buckwheat is the latest grain crop
of the senaon, and iu the latitude of
New York is usually sown from the
last of June to the middle of July.
Ii is frequently sown as a filling crop,
that is, on ground where some other
crop has failed. It makes an excel
lent cleansing crop on foul or ratigh
land, especially upon rich soil where
it makes a rank growth and smothers
out all other giants. Buckwheat is
used to some extent as a green ma
nure to be turned under for wheat or
rye. The Luck what plant is a deep
feeder, and has the power of o'ltaiii
ing the food elements when present
only in small quantities in the soil.
Light sandy soils, deficient in veget
able matter, can be brought up to a
good state of cultivation by first
growing buckwheat as a green ma
nure crop, followed by clover which
is afterward turned under. Though
buckwheat will grow on comparative
ly poor soil, it makes a good use of
light dressing of barnyard manure or
some quick-acting fertilizer. A hun
dred pounds of Peruvian guano or an
tqual weight of fish-scrap will greatly
raise the yield of a buckwheat crop
on a poor soil, and prove a profitable
investment for outlay.
The harvesting of buckwheat is
quite different from t' at of other
grains. The grain "shells" or drops
from the straw very readily, and
therefore must bo gathered with
special enre. It is best to cut it with
a cradle and leave it iu the swartli
until the next morning, when it
should be rolled and set on end while
it is moist with the dew. Arter stand
ing for a few days it is ready to be
threshed. The straw has no special
value an fodder, but should be used
as a litter and absorbent of liquid
manure. The grain makes an excel
lent food for poultry, and when its
flour is iu the form of buckwheat
cakes, it is highly prized, especially
in cold weather. American Agricul
APPLYING FRESH MANURE.
By fresh manure, we mean not only
green dung from the staldes, but 'hat
which has been in the compost heap
a month or more, undergoing fer
mentation. It may be true that in
the compost heap, properly handled,
there is no loss of fertilizing material.
There is frequently losa fmm-'frurplus
manure lying idle in Lua compost
heap, or barn cellar. Oycourae there
is occasion, in the regular routine of
farm crops, to apply large quantities
of manure at one time. But where
the manufacture of manure in the
compost heap is made leading busi
ness, there will be a surplus ior which
no hoed crop calls. Any surplus fer
tilizers in midsummer or autumn, can
be used economically upon the grass
crop. They will begin tddraw inter
est as soon as spread, payable at the
harvest. If you have any mead
ows that out less than two'tvavto the
acre, top dross as soon as the hay is
gathered. If tliey yield two tons,
top-dress and get three tons or a sec
ond cutting. Keep manure on inter
est, and it will pay better than gov
ernment bonds. JEe.
THE SUMMER F.
The summer or b
rmerly considered the best method
paring land for the wheat crop,
exposure of tire oil to atmos-
phcTtc an, other influences for a
whole season lias an excellent effect,
but it is uoi necessary. A crop may
be grown, and if rightly attended to,
the succeeding grain crop may be as
good as whi n preceded by a season
of tallow. The good results of a
fallow are the most evident upon clay
Sand. The mechanical texture of the
soil is improved by the frequent
plowing and stirring, thus opening
the soil for the free entrance of the
, and the better circulation of the
il-watcr. These mechanical i ra
ts facilitate the decomposi-
uon or sonie 01 tne constituents 01

compound's o the soil; The Ammonia
of the atmosphere,- which enters the
soil with the rain,- is more readily ab
sorbed, and,- last but not least, the
vegetable matter in the soil is more
qufckf y and thoroughly decomposed,
and thereby, made available for' sus
taining the growing plants. All these
points aro gained by a summer fallo w
upon a heavy clay soi! but with a
tight soil there is no such deMaed for
mechanical improvement, and tror Cor
responding advantage gained in a
chemical point of view. Nearly all
that can be gained bt a year of clean
culture is obtained by a hoed or root
crop. With it the weeds can be killed
as effectually as in the fallow; the
soil will receive enough culture to
make it sufficiently open for the cb
ctilat ion ot air. There will be a large
gain in the amount of the nitrates
and other valuable nitrogen com
pounds. In the. fallow these are
formed during the hot months of the
year, and, being very soluble, are
washed out of the soil by heavy rains
while, if there is a cropj, the nitrates,
etc., are taken up as food and stored
away, to be used for some succeeding
crop. Besides, the root crop will
furnish a large amount of excellent
food for the farm stock, and finally
yield a quantity ot valuable manure,
to be returned to the soil. With a
root crop introduced into the rota
tion, there is seldom a demand for a
summer fallow. Ex.
