Late cultivation in the orchard should

Ithe trees to mature tneir wool.
In our expel ience the late crop of

ninoni? potatoes than among corn. So
Boon as potato tops die, the turnips have
all the soil from which to draw, and they
are rather benefited by the stirring of
the soil required in diiriMin; potatoes by
hand. If a horse potato dicirer is used,
no turnips can be grown, as the digger
necessarily upturns miu umiic huh, in
cluding turnips or whatever else may bo
growing on it.
Drinking the whole milk makes fine
fat calves, but calves raised on skiih
milk and oatmeal and bran, if not po
sleek at eight months old, had a better
start in bne and muscle, and beat the
rnmnnrid calf at two VeaiB of aire. It is
a waste of cash product to feed a calf
wlinlf mifk after the rennet stomach
changes so as to call for solid food, and
it is a mistake to so feed it after it is ten
days old. Warm skim milk and a little
oatmeal are much better.
There is no sweeter or more nutritious
herbage for anv kind of stock than white
clover. It is Lardy, too, and on much
land comes in from seed lying in the
ground without sowing. This is what
eomo farmc fl mean by saying thatclover
is " natural " to certain soils. They are
usually such as either from negligence
or failure ef seed do not get a catch of
other grasses. Wo suspect that theso
natural white-clover soils are growing
scarcer as farming. improves.
In all Northern climates orchards do
best when planted on soil with a good
deal of vegetable matter. This is more
apt to be a moist soil, and moisture pre
vents the deep freezing that so often de
stroys trees when they get into hearing.
These kinds of soils are usually low and
sheltered from winds another great ad
vantage when the country is denuded of
original forests. What is the use of
growing fruits on hillsides, to have it
blown off as it begins to ripen?
Many farmers think that August and
Rftiitember are the proper months to sow
rye. Sown at theso times, it gives cut
tings for soiling in the fall. If sowing
hnn been necrlected. it is regarded by
come good farmers as an advantage to
sow rye in the fall, even as late as No
vomhpr nr ns loniz as the cround can be
worked. Tho grain sown thus late does
not sprout in the fall, but starts very
early in spring, and the crop is much

In passing anv piece of sowed corn late
in the crowing season it is easy to see
what will ami what will not make good

especially on poor soil, is a light-yellow
color, tasteless and neurlv void of nutri

Prof. U. W. Stewart tells the readers
of the Country Gentleman how to reno
vate old animals, lie says : "Cut clover
hay short, say half an inch; take cheap
molasses and dissolve ono pint in one
gallon of water, and sprinkle this upon
three pounds of the cut clover with two
poundsi of buckwheat flour and two
pounds of wheat bran. Feed this amount
to each horse or animal threo times a
day, commencing with a little less per
day for two days." Marvelous results
are claimed for such feeding.
Theacreagoof rye is steadily on the
decline in all Europe. In England it
has almost entirely disappeared. In
Belgium it has lost much ground. In
jenuanv and Russia it only holds its
own on the poorer lands, while in the
other countries of Europe it is greatly
decreasing in importance. In lrance
the same marked diminution is to lie no
ticed. Barley is also on tho decline.
But oats are steadily increasing in im

Green pickles will keep perfectly in

every morning, when the dogs aro let

tho fresh purity of this place with tho

The distinction of being ono of tho
handi-oniest and most graceful of
American actresses was long ago
awarded to Eva Mountford, whose
portrait we give this week. It may bo
added to this fa 't that she is also ono
of the most promising of our native
stars, for within a brief period she has
trained nlau.lits over a wile stretch ot
t.'rritnrv. and has forced the most
critical nens to viold her tribute.
Eva Mountford is tho daughter
nf Pnl. .1. M. Adams. and she
was born at Detroit, Mien. At an
early age she moved with her parents
to St. Louis. Mo . whero she was care
fully educated at the Episcopal Sisters,
School. A taste for theatricals quick
ly manifested itself, and when sho
moved from Detroit to this city, about
lSiiil, Miss Mountford was enabled to
follow her bent. Joining several well
known amateur dramatic associations
of this city mid Brooklyn, she (illicitly
attracted attention by tho excellonco
of her work. its earnest
ness. its tkorouirh Intelligence and
its unconventmnality. Naturally, sho
irrnfluated into tho ni ofessional ranks,
and for a number of seasons she played
many successful engagement, with
nrominent road troupes. Her debut as
ii slur occurred in Auirust. 1800. at the
People's Theatre, as the titutar heroino
in "Eugenie Le Tour " adapted by hcr-
tu'lffroin an out drama nv r redone
Soulie. Her triumph at that tltno
was recorded in the columns of Tho
C'linper and other newspapers. A

tho rather uncommon experience of
not receivintr untavorablo criticism.
