Rye for Future.
Lincoln, Nebraska, Farmer.
There is probably no crop so val
uable to the stock-raiser as rye. It
may be sown in the fall atiy time
after the last plowing of corn up to
the time of the freezing of the ground,
and even just before the last plowing.
This is particularly the best time
where fall pasture is wanted, but as
the season is too far advanced now
for getting a fall crop, it may be
sown to advantage for spring feed
ing. The same amount of spring
feed can be had in no other way so
cheaply as with rye; it comes on just
at a time when stock most need good
feed, we may say between hay and
grass. At that season of the year
stock are most liable to be thin in
flesh and dninty in appetite; the con
tinuous feeding of dry .feed having
turned them against it, they require
a change, and nothing but green
feed will satisfy them; besides, there
is no. better medicine for stock when
they have begun to look rough with
their hair pointing toward their ears?

Butter is usually salted in accord
ance With the demands of the mark
et to which it is to be sent. American
butter is generally salted at the rate
of about one ounce to the pound
erhaps the greater part of the
sweet-cream butter has halt oi less
than halt that quantity. In the south
of Europe, indeed all Latin countries
oil is in more general use than butter
and nnsafted butter is preferred The
Parisian custom of serving butter en
tirely unsaited is sometimes aped in
England and some ot our American
cities, but as a rule the markets de
mand that the butter shall carry
more than half an ounce of salt.
Unsaited butter will keep forever
provided if, is butter and only butter.
But the butter ol commerce is never
pure, it retams more or less ot the
other properties ot the milk, and it
is these which, while they add very
much to its valrfe, are subject to al
most immediate deterioration, and in
turn tend to injure the butter itself.
Even salt will no longer preserve
them. Unsaited butter does not
"keep." The use of salt in butter is
more for flavoring than for preser
vation purposes. The protection and
preservation of butter are due far
more to the package than to the salt
which is put in it.

Annual Agricultural Convention

Visksburg, Hiss., Planter's Journal. .
The annual convention of agricul
turists, which was held last year, un
der the auspices and direction of the
Commissioner of Agriculture, proved
of invaluable service to planters, far
mers, stock-raisers and general pro
ducers in all sections of the country,
for whose benefit it was organized
The evidences o its success and ad
vantages have been made so appar
ent, and are of such a gratifying and
satisfactory character, that Dr. Lor
ing considers himself justified and
necessitated to call a second meeting
of the convention oi agriculturists,
which he announces will be held at
the department at Washington, com
mencing on January 20th next, and
will continue one week. The date of
the convention has teen fixed ten
days later than last year, to avoid
interfering with the various State
conventions and other gatherings of
farmers which are usually held about
the first of the year.
The meetings last year were large
ly attended by representative agri- gate.

The roltnnda of the capitol pre
sents a curious appearance to its
familiar habitrteS. The historic pic-
tures of the signing of "The Declara
tion of Independence," "The mar-'
riage of Pocahontas," "The Sufrend-'
er of Cornwallis" and others have
been concealed under maroon cur
tains, and in their place are bung
numerous paintings of smaller size
leaned to the Garfield monument
fair. The old ball ot representatives
is full of gatidy pavilions in which
are sold as great a variety of articles
as can be found at a country store.
The ignoble temporary use to which
the capitol has been put seems at first
jarringly out of place; but oh reflec-
tion, one remembers that his country
capitol has been the scene of bolder:
bargains and less innocent traffic. It
is doubtful if the Garfield fair will
realize the expectations of its mana
gers. The attendance has not been
as large as was expected, and the
booths, with the exception of the
one managed by the professional
beauty, Miss Gipsie Gilbert; have not
paid. Miss Gilbert has not only bus-'
tained her part in the Langtry role,
but she has established1 a repntatrori "

to business. With a voice as sweet
