DOVT LEAVE THE FARM, feOYS.
Come, boys, I hare something to tell you
QCome near, I ivould whisper it low:
You are thinking of leaving the homestead
Don't be in a hurry to go,. .. J .....
The city has many attractions,
But think of the vices and sins ;
When once in tbyortex of fashion,
I (-JIow soon the downward course begins. ' '
You talk of the mines of Australia
They're wealthy in gold, without doubt ;
But ah ! there is gold on the farm, boys,
If only you'll shovel it out.
The mercantile life is a hazard
The goods are first high, and then low ;
Better risk the old farm a while longer
Don't be in a hurry to go..
The great busy Vest has inducements, -
And so Las the busiest mart ; ;
lt wealth is not made in a'day; boys
Don't be in a hurry to start !
GThe bankers and brokers are wealthy '
They take in their thousands or so :
Ah ! think ot the fruads and deceptions
Dou't be in a hurry to go. ...
Tne farm is the safest and surest
The orchards are loaded to-day ;
You're free as the air of the mountains,
And monarch of all you survey,
Better stay on the farm a while longer,
Though profits should come rather slow j
Remember you've nothing to risk, boys
!on't be in a hurry to go ! '
OFattexixg Chickens. A constant read
er of the Extekphise, gives the following
directions for fattening for market or for
the table, such chickens as it may riot be
lesiroH3 to keep on account of any fault of
form or color : Recollect, that any bird,
however faulty as to color or shape, or
however deformed, will do perfect eat
ing. A little extra feeding " while vonn-r
will cause these pariahs to contribute to
the support of their more highly favored
fellows. But unless for home consumption,
it will be useless to kill them if they fare
with the others in the yard, rutting them
up will not only fatten them, but it is won
derful to those unaccustomed to it, to ob
serve their growth in a short time. Ama
teurs, wlufkre family men, know some
thing of the appelites of long, lean boys,
the monstrous consumption of food, which
all seems devoted to the growth of arms
and legs. It is the result of exercise. It
ii equally true of chickens; and it is hope
less to attempt to fatten them while at lib
erty. They must be put in a proper coop;
and this, like most other poultry appurte
nances, need not be expensive. To fatten
twelve fowls, iPcoop may be three feet
long, eighteen inches high, and eighteen
inches deep, made entirely of bars. No
part of it solid neither top, sides nor
bottom. Discretion must be used accord
ing to the size of tl, chickens put tip.
They do not want room; indeed the closer
they ftre the better provided they can all
rtford up at the same time. Care must be
taken to put up such as have been apus
tomed to be together, or- they will fight.
If one is quarrelsome it is better tore
move it at once; as, like other bad exam
ples, it soon finds imitators. A diseased
thicken should not be put up.
'A coop, such as we have described,
should be put in any out-housc where it is
ered from draught, and at night should
be 'corded with sacks. Fowls will not
I'aii if they are cold. The bars of the
i ()p Slay bo an inch and a half apart, and
the food and water must be put outside.
The latter must be clean, cool and fresh.
" The food should be ground oats; and
may either be put in a trough, or on a flat
board running along the front of the coop.
It may be mixed with either water or milk;
the latter is belter. It should be well
hlaked. forming a pulp as loose as can be.
provided it does not run. off the board.
They must be well fed two or three
times per day the Drst time as soon after
daybreak as may be possible or conveni
ent, and then at intervals of three hours.
Kach meal should be as much and no more
than they can eat up clean. When they
have done feeding, the board should be
wipedund some gravel rnay be spread.
It causes them to feed and ibrive.
"After a fortnight of this treatment you
will have good fat fowls. If, however,
there arc but four or six to be fatted, they
jnust not have as much room as though
there were twelve. Nothing is easier than
to allot them the proper space; as it is on
ly necessary to have two or three pieces
tf wood to pass between the bars, and to
lornr a partition. This may also serve
wheji fowls areup at different degrees of
l.itness. This requires attention.ajr fowls
will not keep fat and heallhy. As soon
us the fowl is sufficiently fatted it must be
killed; otherwise it will still get fat, but it
will lose flesh. If fowls are intended for
the market, of course they are, or may be,
nil f)itted at once; but if for home con
sumption, it is better to put them up at
nich intervals as will suit the time when
they will be required for table. When the
time arrives for killing, whether they are
meant for market or otherwise, they should
be fasted without food or water for twelve
or fifteen hours. This enables them to be
kept for soft' time after being killed, even
in hot weather.
'There is more trouble than expense in
fattening a fowl; and if these directions
are carried out, the drafts of the yard will
furnish many good meals, or pay for food.
It is only necessary to make one more re
:ark. These instructions follow our en
treaties to amateurs and breeders to dis
jjose of faulty birds before they have be
come costly y consumption of food. All
the foregoing will be thrown away if prac
ticed on old fowls; nothing will make them
u-nder. Therefore, put them tip while
ihey are young if you waut to eat tender,
juicy fowls, and still more if yon want to
sell at a good price. They are worth far
more now than they will be after you have
kept them three months longer." -

dictate the necessity of its removal, for it is
a tact that premature decline ot the vigor of
