"There's no place like home."
Much has been said and written up
on what should be done to make a
model home for the farmer. Made
up as this country is largely of far
mers and farms, its pride should be
in the attractiveness of farmers'
homos We do not speak now of
the interior, but of the exterior, of
the home. The result which might
be attained if a united effort should
be made by the farmers of the coun
try to improve their homes by the
cultivation of trees, shrubs and
flower., would be marvellous1 indeed.
Often very often a farm house is
remembered by the passer-by, chiefly
for its unattrac-tiveiies, owing to an
entire absence of all ornamentation
not a flower, shrub, or tree, to be
seen, and, perhaps, not even a fence
inclosing the rusty grass-plot. No
place is so retired that the ornamen
tal and the beautiful can be dis
pensed with. Ths surroundings of
home have much to do with the re
spect which the children have for it;
and long years after, its appearance
will go toward making up the pleas
ant or unpleasant memories con
necting themselves with it. The
farmer cannot afford to neglect beau
tifying his home. It will add great
ly to the contentment of the children
and awaken a just pride in the hearts
of the wife and the farmer himself, to
surround his home with those at
tractions which nature is ready to
contribute. Let every farmer whose
home may as yet be wanting in this
respect, give the matter his careful
thought, JVT Y. Observer.
Crop Products in South America.
The latest Buenos Ayres journals
speak in terms of positive enthusiasm
with respect to the abundance of
their crops. The wool clip has turned
oat beyond the most sanguine ex.
pectations, being some 25,000 bales
in excess of that of last year. The
chief export trade at present is in
maize, the total export of which this
winter, it is estimated, will reach
200,000 tons. This cereal is said to
be of superior quality, and as the
soil and.clima'te are admirably adapt
ed to its cultivation, immense crops
in the future are looked for. The
sugar harvest is just beginning and
so rapid is the growth of this in
dustry that the crop this year is es
timated at one million arrobes,
against fifty or sixty thousand two
years ago. The wines of the interior
are also coming into great compe
tition with those of Europe, and in a
few years more there is reason to be
lieve that the present great import
trade in wines and sugar will be re
duced to nil, owing to the enhanced
volume of home productions, V. Y.
Early Fattening of Animals.
It is quite as important to fatten
and market economically, the animal
products of the farm, as it is to raise
them. A pound of beef, pork, or
poultry, can be made much cheaper
in September and October, than
later in the season, when a larger
part of the rations roust go to keep
up animal heat. "There is no sleight
of hand in laying fat upon an ani
mal's carcass, it must come out of
good honest food in the rations fed.
The temperature in the latter part
of summer and early autumn, is in
favor of the best use of all the fat
tening artioles of food, while there is
enough of green food to sharpen the
appetite, and keep up good digestion.
We have found green corn stalks es
pecially sweet corn, an excellent
article in the stye, to be fed in con
nection with corn on the cob, and
corn meal, and other rations. We
have lie ver seen pork made more rap
idly than with this kind of feeding.
It will be safe to feed all that the
swine will eat up clean, and no more
Slack up the feed a little when any
thing is left in the trough. This will
require a little attention, but the pigs
will grow so fast, that one can afford
to linger by the stye a few minutes,
once in a day, to see the fat accumu
late. Corn is high this season, and
we want to make the best use of it.
Tne best poultrymen, we know, be
gin to give extra feed in September,
when they mean to kill in November.
The Thanksgiving market is pretty
sure to be a good one, and brings
ready cash. The small potatoes
boiled, and mixed with Indian meal
and hot water, make an excellent
feed for turkeys and other poultry.
This favors growth, as well as fat
tening. The rations of corn and
other grain, unground, may ba re
served to the last few weeks of life.
Turkeys should have their liberty all
through the extra feeding. Some
poultry-men shut up their geese and
ducks, but we doubt the ecouomj,ot
this method. With a good run they
will have a great variety of food,
and thrive better with an access to a
pasture with a pond or brook, while
they are receiving full feed for mar
ket. All that the fattening animals
will eat up clean, is a good rule for
the last month of feeding.- Agriculturist.
Putting away Tools.
The wealing out of farm imp
reents is, as a rule, due more to neg
lect than to use. If tools can be well
taken care of, it will pay to buy
those made of the best steel, and
finished in the best manner; but in
common hands, and with common
care, such are of litth; advantage.
Iron and steel parts should be cleaned
with dry sand and a cob, or scraped
with a piece of soft iron, washed and
oiled if necessary, and in a day or
two cleaned off with the corn cob
and dry sand. Finally paint the
iron part with rosin and beeswax, in
the proportion of 4 of rosin, to 1 of
wax, melted together and applied
hot. This is good for the iron or
steel parts of every sort of tool.
Wood work should be painted with
good, boiled, linseed oil, white lead
and turpentine, colored of any de
sired tint; red is probably the best
color. Keep tba cattle away until
the paint is dry and hard, or they
will lick, with death as the result.
If it is not desired to use paint on
hand tools, the boiled oil with tur
pentine and "liquid drier," does just
as well. Many prefer to saturate
the wood-work of farm implements
with crude Petroleum. This can
not be used with color, but is applied
by itself, so long as any is absorbed
by the pores of the wood. Me.
Whitewash the Out-Buildlnga.
There is no more healthful method
of keeping the stables, sheds, and
pens clean than to give them a good
coat of lime-wash. The wash is easi
ly and quickly made as follows:
Slake a bushel of fresh lime in a
pork, or other barrel, with water
enough to make a thick- paste, after
which fill up the barrel with hot
water, and let it stand for a few
hours. This wash may be applied
in various ways. It may be spread
upon the walls with a large white
wash brush, and no pains need be
taken to do a neat job. Whatever
wash falls upon the floor in the ope
ration, is not lost, but helps to sweet
en the stable or stall. The quickest
and most satisfactory method, is to
use a force pump, by which the lime-
wash ean be thrown into every cor
Apples for Export.
From reliable sources we learn
that the apple crop will be very poor
in Jiglanrl this vear, and not over
abundant on the continent of Europe
A short apple crop inEugtand,
means a demand for American fruit,
to the profit, if not ofour orchard ists,
at least to our shippers. In former
years, American apples have met
with a ready sale at paying prices
in England, but within the last two
or three years, the trade has been
less profitable. It is the o'd story
over again, that good fruit in good
condition, brings good prices. Two
years ago, taking advantage of the
unusual scarcity abroad, parties sent
over large quantities of apples, with
out regard to their quality or condi
tion. As a consequence, this fruit in
Con vert-sard en market, as it ould
have been in Washington market,
was left on the dealer's hands.
Hundreds of barrels did not bring
the cost of the freight, and American
apples fell into disfavor. The same
course, if followed this year, will
meet with a similar result. Only
the best fruit, packed in the best
manner, will pay in England as at
home. The English received their
first impressions of American apples
from the Newtowu Pippin, which
Feveral years ago was the only kind
sent abroad, and was in demand
there, however large their own crop
of fruit might be. But this variety
is now far from abundant, and oth
ers have been forwarded of late years.
The "Baldwin," "Greening," "Spitz
enberg," "Northern Spy," "King of
Thompkins Co.,'' etc. have .old well,
when good of their kind. The ras
cally practice of "topping," has in
jnred the reputation of our fruit, so
at present, it is not bought by the
appearance of the top layer, but the
contents of the barrel are poured out
for the inspection of the purchaser.
Properly managed, the export of ap
ples might be very profitable, and
we hope that some method may .be
devised, by which a share of the
profits may reach the grower of the
fruit. American Agriculturist for
Remedy Against Barbers.
Barbers will talk. There is no
help for that. Their jaws have to
keep time with the movement of the
cissors. It is not the mere talking
that is annoying, but it is what they
say, and their mar.ner of saying it,
that nearly drives a strong man
crazy. If, for instance, a barber were
only to make such remarks as "what
a noble brow you have," or "your
dome of thought reminds one .of
Daniel Webster," or if they were to
abuse some man you do not like, the
sitter would listen very complacently,
and some bald-headed people we
know of would want to have the
ends of their locks trimmed four or
five times a week, just to hear what
the confounded fool of a barber had
to say. The trouble with barbers
is that they do not say what you
want to listen to. The barber will
persist in discovering that your hair
is falling out, and there is nothing in
heaven above, or on the earth below
that will arrest the fugitive hair, ex
cept a bottle of each particular bar
ber's magic lotion. Another thing
that worries the barber more than it
troubles its legitimate owner, is
dandruff. A3 nine persons in ten
have more; or less dandruff on their
heads, the barber has a fine field to
work in, as it were. Dandruff is
another dread malady that is hur
rying the unfortunate man into his
grave, unless he is willing to shell
out a relunctant half dollar for a
bottle of the same vile stuff that the
aforesaid barber is willing to part
with forthe consideration mentioned.
Of course, the eloquence of the
barber cannot he closed off entirely,
as'gass is shut off; but the colored
barber can be temporarily discour
aged. He will run his hands through
your hair and say:
"Boss, I kin gib yer a remedy tor
fifty cents what will knock dat ar
scurff in yer head oold."
Then you say:
"Look here, you have got one foot
in the grave. Your liver is out of
order. I can tell it by your com
plexion. Your complexion is too
yellow. You had better get a bot
tle of Carter's pills or Reed's Gilt
He will be surprised if not shocked.
We tried that game on a barber, and
his reproachful look vUUP4erle
forgotten while memory holdr ner
seat. Usually one application ia
sufficient, bat occasionally he rallies
towards the close of the matinee, but
system reacts, and he soys timidly.
"Yer hasn't answered my question
yet, boss, about de bottle of magi
lotion for de scurff."
All you have to do is to atsk him
if he has read Dr. PiHKins' treat i
on dandruff. He will reply h ha
not, then yon sayr
"Dr. Pillkins is of'the"opinion that
dandruff is produced by activity of
the brain. People who have torpid
brains or no brains at all, are never
troubled with dandruff What yo
need is some dandruff. If yon col
ored folks had more dandruff in your
heads there would be more of yoo.
in Congress. If you don't qnit cur
ing white people's head of dandruffs
their brains will dwindle away and.
they will set up Barber shops, and:
then you will have more competition
than you will want."-
This last dose will cure the bar
ber of dandruff, falling out of th
hair, and whatever else troubles him.
After the above remedy has been
applied, you can get your hair cat
ten times a day, and he will never
again venture to prescribe for "&
scurff in yer head." Try it Taxi

used to ask me to chalk it down. I
