White Clover Good for
Any Kind of Stock.
TO RENOVATE OLD ANIMALS.
The Aoreage of Rye is Reported to be
Steadily on the Decline in
All of Europe.
In our experience the late crop of
.white turnips generally does better
among potatoes than among corn. So
soon 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 digging potatoes by
hand. If a horse potato digger is used,
no turnips can lie grown, as the digger
necessarily upturns the entire soil, in
cluding turnips or whatever else may be
growing on it.
Drinking the whole milk makes fine
fat calves, but calves raised on skim
milk and oatmeal and bran, if not so
sleek at eight months old, had a better
start in bone and muscle, and beat the
pampered calf at two years of age. It is
a waste of cash product to feed a calf
whole milk 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 littie
oatmeal are much better.
There is no sweeter or more nutritious
herbage for any kind of stock than white
clover. It is hardy, too, and on much
land comes in from seed lying in the
ground without sowing. This !b what
some farmers mean by saying that clover
is " natural " to certaiii soils, Thev are
usually such as either from negligence
or failure of seed do not get a catch of
ol her grasses. We susnect that these
natural white-clover soils are growing
ncurcer as mriiiiug improves.
III all Northern climates orchards do
best when planted on soil with a good
deal of vegetable matter. This is more
apt to lie a moist soil, and moisture Dre-
vents the deep freezing that so often de
stroys trees when they gt into bearing.
These kinds of soils are usually low and
sheltered from winds another iireat ad
vantage when the country is denuded of
original foreBtB. What is the use of
growing fruits on hillsides, to have it
blown on as it begins to ripen ?
Many farmers tiiink that August and
September are the proper months to bow
rye. riown at these times, it gives cut
tings for soiling in the fall. If sowing
has been neglected, it is regarded by
some good farmers as an advantage to
sow rye in the fall, even as late as No
vember or as long aB the ground can be
worked. The grain sown thus late does
not sprout in the fall, but starts very
early in spring, and the crop is much
earlier than from any spring-sown seed.
In passing any piece of sowed corn late
in the growing season it ie easy to see

The acreage, of rye is steadily on the
decline in all Europe, In England it
has almost entirely disappeared. In
Beltrami it has lost much wound. In

Muss litter and sawdust are becoming
so generally used for stabling in England
that many of the Lancnshire and Chester
farmers are unable to sell their straw.
They recently held a meeting to consider
this subject, at which it was admitted
that, if the present state of afl'airs con
tinue, straw will be selling at (5 a ton
before the end of next year. Certain
landlords and corporations have found
it profitable to buy the moss litter and
sell their straw, which still furtiier adds
to the glut. The farmers have agreed
not to buy any manures except where
straw was used lor Deciding.
THE ATHLETICS PITCHER.
Illton Chamberlain Whose Work In
the Box Is Great.
Klton Chamberlain, whose portrait la
here given, ia the well known profes
sional pitcher, now connected with the
Athletic club, of Philadelphia, a mem
ber of the American association. He
was born Nov. 5, 1807, at Warsaw, N.
Y.; but now hails from Buffalo, where
he began at an early age his baseball
career, as thepiteherof amateur teams
of that city. His protessional career
commenced in 1SK5 when he was en
gaged aB pitcher of a team represent
ing iiamiiuiD, tmi, iiiauineriain in
180, pitched for the Macon club, of the
Sonthern. leagne, and 1877 he
filled the same position of the Louis
ville club, of the American associa
tion, with which he first attained an ex
tended reputation as a clever and prom
ising professional pitcher. During 188
and 1889 he was one of the pitchers of
the t Louis club, and in the former
season his effective pitching materially
a ded its team in winning for the fourth
successive time the championship of
the American a.1 sociation. In 1800
Chamberlain pitched for the Columbua
club, of the same association, and this
season he is one of the pitchers of the
Athletic clubof Philadelphia, as above
mentioned. During his professional
career Chamberlain, who is able to
pitch both left handed and right hand-
ed, being ambi dexterous, has accom
plished some excellent work in his cho
sen position On June 7, 1801, he pre
vented the Columbus team from
making more than a Bolitnry Bafe M

LADIES RIDING MAN FASHION.
An Attempt Made to Indnce the IA
dlenui Abandon Ihe Klde-Maddle.
Efforts bave been made to introduce
among1 ladies the fashion of riding
astride their horses, instead of using
the less bafe iae saddle. The Bnbject
was disiniKBtti a year ago in many of
the papers, but us the ladies did not
encourage it the idea was dropped. But
it bobs up now and then and it is possi
ble it will finally be adopted. The po
sition, its not an unnatural one. The
women of half -civilized tribes, the In
dians, the Kirghese, Tartars, etc., al
ways ride astride, so do the Mexicans.
Albanians, Bouraanians and the people
of some of the Austrian provinces. It
was a general cnstuin iu Germany as
late as the end of the twelfth century.
There ia no doubt that such a mode
of riding is both safer and more
graceful 'Ihe cottuine of onrse com
