Too much corn or cornmeal causes
Linseed meal should not be fed to
very young pigs except in small quan
tity, and not very often, us it is too
much of laxative for them.
To prevent the formation of long
tp roots and got a large number of
small roots on plants raised in boxes
use a shallow seed-bed, not over two
inches of loam in the boxes. This
dries out quickly, and care should be
taken to ki ep it moist,
There is inore gain, in proportion to
its feed, during the first year of any
animal's life than there is any time
after. Acting on this hint, calves pre
destined for the butcher including all
grade males, may be well fed until
they are a year old, and then turned
i IT for beef. If killed thus early, the
male should not be castrated.
The utility of windmills on the
farm is now very generally recognized
and they are seen dotting hundreds of
farms where five years ago none were
to be found. A Western farmer
writes that with his windmill he grinds
all kinds of feed, makes a good article
of corn-meal and graham flour, shells

When the farmers are advised to
give warm water to slock, it should al
ways be understood that if above
blood heat it should have fed of some
kind stirred in it to make it palatable ;
bran or corn meal will do. If given
to them clear it should bo, for the
best results, only a little warmer than
spring water, the icy chill entirely re
moved. It certainly does not pay to keep a
low grado of sheep and then let them
take care of themselves. The small
amount of wool secured, as well as the
poor quality, is such that no margin of
profit will bo left to the farmer over
and above the cost. Even with poor
sheep a much better growth of wool
can be secured if they bo reasonably
well cared for than if they be left to
The very best time we believe to
make plant cuttings of grape-vine
canris is just as soon as frost destroys

Plant these at an angle of 80 deg. in

Ten tons of superior Texas cotton
seed were shipped from Galveston,
Tex., consigned to the German East
African Colonization Society, Zanzi
bar, Africa. An experienced planter
accompanied the seed for the purpose
of instructing the natives of Zanzibar
in the cultivation of the cotton plant.
This event marks tho introduction of
cotton on the eatt coast of Africa.
A method for protecting trees
against rabbits and ground micf,
prscticod by Missouri farmers and in
dorsed by the Missouri State Horti
cultural Society, consists in covering
the trunk of the tree around with
wire cloth. If this be inserted an
inch or two into the ground, it is
claimed that it proves an equal pro
tection to ground mice, which often
girdle trees at and below the surface
during the winter.
Experiments in pig feeding, instl
tuted under the Danish Agricultural
Society, go to show that skimmed
milk has double the feeding value of
buttermilk ; that rye and barley are
of about equal valuo, with a slight
percentage in favor of rye, and that
six pounds of skimmed milk have the
same feeding value as one pound of
rye or barley, and twelve pounds of
buttermilk are required to obtain the
same result of feeding value.
Thoro is no popular craze just now
for growing sunflowers. It is quite as
well, since the old-fashioned reasons
for planting them are as strong as
ihey ever wore. They made excellent
winter food for hens, and if protected
while yjung, the sunflower will rap
idly tower up and make a splendid
shade for them in hot weather, in the
yard where fowls run. 1 he plant is a
uross feeder, and even the henyard is
scarcely too rich for it.

Tho old-fashioned open ditch is in
our climat an expensive nuisance.
Every spring it is partly tilled with
sediment, leaves of trees and soil
washed down from its banks. There
is, Inside, a waste of time in plowing,
cultivating, and every other teamwork
in a field thus divided. The sooner
tho open ditch is made into an under
drain the better it will be for the
farmer's purse. It nisy cost at first.
but it will pay every way.
Except for bee ta and mangels, which
thrive in hot weather, no beating ma
nure should be us id for root crops.
Turnips, carrots and parsnips are U t
ter manured the year before with sta
ble manure and some mineral fertili
ser at soediug time. Too much heat
and nitrogenous manure makes the
roots grow faster, besides causing
greater injuries from insects. Hog
mature is especially tich and heating,
and is therefore especially exception
able on any ground intended for plant
ing in root crops.
