I finish this paragraph with a quotation from
bis work on the "Chemistry of Agriculture and
Physiology, " that Mr. O. mar not judge me
ambitious of obtaining Ibe woman vic-toty of
"lost word." Possibly the extract may induce
him to cut aaide hia prejudice. Why I wrote
of beds was, that I am the happy possessor of
thoso desirable flue acres devoted to that cup,
which tho Rctui, bo justly mentioned oa a
desideratum to ovcry farmer, and I prefer to
apeak that I do know, and testily that I bare
aceu. I object to turnips, not from prejudice,
but from bating tried them, and found them
wanting White turnlpa are apt to mildew,
and Bwede in addition to the mildewing are
badly affected by the grey cabbage Ionia, How
ever, an far aa regarda fcedlug properties, I
believe the turnip excels the mangold wurzel.

A Durable Whitewash.
from the roelfle Iturtl Press.
Emtoiui Hciul 1'iiiiw. I herewith aend re
ceipt for wbllewaxhing, lu reply to your Ilenlcla
correspondent. This wash is iucombustibla
and cheap. It will prevent lbs collection of
moss, aud affords n most efficient protection
from Are, under ordinary circumstances of ex
posure to great heat. TaVo a aufllclent quan
tity of good stone lime and alack It carefully in
a closed box, to prevent, as far as possible, the
escape of steam; after It is thoroughly slacked
pass It through a fiuo sieve. To every six
quails of this slacked lime, add one quart of
coarse salt, and one gallon of water, the mix
lure then boiled ami skimmed cleaned; then to
every five gallons thereof, add by alow degrees
three-fourths of a pouud of potash and four
quarts of very lino sand tho liner the better.
Coloring matter can be added to fancy. Apply
with a puiut-brusb. This wash, If the Baud be
ground flue, looks equally as well as ordinary
paint, and Is far more durable, besldea being in
combustible. It forms a bard cement, aud as
such will stop crscks lu a roof or elsewhere.
Wood so protected will never decay from the
surface. Two good coat applied to trlcka will
render them utterly Impervious to moisture.
Tho expense Is a mere trifle. Every farmer
should cover his outbuildings and board fences
with this wash. O, T. lUunis.
