reasonably expect, he would not be likely
to blunder much in its management. The
(g first thought might bo, do I want fruit, or
O Uo I want grass, grain, potatoes, etc., the
iuostP We suppose he wants fruit in his
q orchard; if so, he may reasonably ask if he
can afford to expend the amount of labor
necessary to maintain his fruit teees, and
nothing else upon the land, from the time
they are first set out. If one does this,
jilants trees only, and keeps the ground
G plowed and clean, for surely weeds are
worse than even a corn crop he will, if
the land is in proper condition, have good
trees, but at a heavy expense for several
years. He may rather revolve the ques
tion, what may I cultivate with least in-
q j'iry to the trees, and at most profit to my-
nelf, and thus make use of otherwise wast
ed energies of the soil, manure and sun
shine? This question cannot be answered
off-hand for there are many things to be
considered. When we manure the soil of
nn orchard, we must .apply more manure
than the trees need, because thev should
find it wherever their roots wander, and
these do not lill the whole soil. Trees
probably draw m st upon the fertility of
the soil i.t the period of their most rapid
growth. Hence, it we put a crop upon
the laud to use up the, excess of manure,
it is a poor plan to employ one. the roots
f which will voraciously wrangle with,
those of the fruit trees lor foud and moist-
: ure during this period. This will lead to
the inteid.ction of corn and all grains, and
seed producing plants, except buckwheat
for those ail make their growth when the
( trees have a prior light to the soil. The

Makin i Yeast. As much of the success
of bread-making depends upon the yeast
used, and as home-made yeast is usually
better than baker's, every house-keeper
should make her own yeast. For hop
yeast, take a handful of hops and put it in
three, quarts of water; boil it half an hour.
Then wet a pint of Hour with cold w ater,
rubbing all the lumps out; put it iu large
pan and strain the water in which the hops
were boiled upon it. When it is oulte
cool, put a cup of yeast in it; put it ia a
jug, and set it ia a warm place till it rises,
Then put it in a cool place. This will
keep a month. When it is nearly gone
make a new quantity, taking the remain-

Agriculturist says, The best thing I have
tried for sore shoulders in horses is crude
petrolinm. It' seems to have great healing
properties. I had been using it for paint,
merely rnbbing it on the waodwith a rag,
and was astonished how soon a sore, that
happened to be cn my hand, got well.
Since then I have used it for sores of all
kinds on animals, and am satisfied that it is
excellent. I rub it. not merely on the sore
itself, but for some distance around it It
has a slight exciting action on the skin for
a few minutes, and, when rubbed on the
parts near tin; sore, probably has a tenden
cy to scatter the inflammation. Petroleum,
just now, is one of my hobbies. Dr. Ed
gar took out a patent tor its use and gave
me a farm right." 11" he would be equal
ly generous with other farmers. I would
advise every one of them to buy a barrel
of petrolium at once, and use it freely.
That it will preserve the wood I have no
doubt, although, of course. 1 have not
iii?ed it long enough to ascertain the fact.
It is just the thing for painting wagons and
all kinds of farm implements and tools. On
mv farm it is narticulatlv needed, for I
find it next to impossible to get things put
under cover, and the exposure to rain and
wind, and sun, cracks the wood and opens
tin? pores. I'etrolium is better than or
dinary, paint, because it will penetrate
deeper into these pores, and it seems to
close them up, and makes the wood lock

of freshening rancid butter is published in
many of the papers as follows: "To a pint
of water add thirty drops (about half a

butter has come in contact wiih the water,

rendered so sweet by it that able judges
