A larpe proportion of tho goeds Orst s ; planted in the spring arc lost by rotting in tho ground. To prevent this and cause the seedn to germinate more read ily the following plan lbsugKestod, hav ing heretofore been w«H tested. After having thoroughly pulverised and lev r | ellcd the ground, place about two •padefdHs of fresh stable mauuri in conical piles in rows on top of tho ground at proper distances apart, according to { the seeds to oc planted. Draw the diit j over said piles of manure so as to form ? neat hills, %nd when you plant your f j seeds place them in tbe manuro. The ! manure will preserve the seeds, oven if t plant id a little too early, until the weather turns sufficiently u.irin fo cause I I hum to germinate. SOAKING SKKDS lItFORR I LANTI.NO. liefore planting, when tho weather is eool, or when danger is apprehended . from insects, earbonato of ammonia should ba added to tho wa'.ei iu which j the seeds are to bo soaked. When seeds first germinate llioy oblaiu acid from tbe j anil, having no leaves to absorb it from • the atmosphere, and tho carbonate of ; ammonia supplies it. Experience has s ; proven that germination is thus hnstcn- Icd as well as maturity of the orop, and i , : that the yield is increased, all other ' things being equal. About four ounces ,of tlie carbonate of ammonia to a gallon | of wator may be uod. Tho proper time i , for tho seeds tn soak is from twenty-four ] ; to torty-eight hours. i ■ AUVANTADKS OK BI'R'ICTINO FEEDS BE- I ) | FORK I'LANTI.NO, . j Some seeds, especially corn, can bo i , 1 sprouted to great ndvantago. To do i this uflur removing the seeds from said I i i soak, place t'lein in a proper vessel and I cover Well with wet cloths. Occasion- ' ally pour on warm water, the vessel pre ferably being in a warm room. Sprouts ! | will s*oM appe.'.r, wjicu tho seeds are in 1 a proper rm.dition for planting. If pre- i 1 f :rabh, a headless barrel,say an ordinary i I fish barrel, may he us-id for sprouting, i 1 Tho barrel shuuld bo stood on tho end i and filled about half full with fresh stable luiinnro. I'ack down and wet ; with water to tnako it heat. Cover the | manure with a layer of straw several 1 inches thick and then lay cloths of any | kind on tho straw, l'laco tho corn there iir. and treat as before directed. In this caselho sprouting m ly bo dono out door* If ihc first sprout lhat staitafrnin corn ! bo broken off, or even out off sloso to the grain no injury will follow 'ther small roots will start out anil the corn will come up as well as if tho root had not been broken. Tho principal advan tages of sprouting are as follows : 1 1. You can got a much belter stand. 2. You can drop the corn according to the stand wanted, one gram for one stalk, and so on, thus saving seed and \ time in th nning. If tho sprouted graina only be dropped throwing away those I ; that, have not spmuted they will nearly 1 all come up. e k 8. The young plants will havu a con " sidernblo start of tho grass and woods,' tiius rendering cultivation mu«h easier. 4. As a good stand can lie procured j at the start but little time will afterwards be lost ic replanting, and upon the whole | a much better yield can be aoourod, pa"- ing in the end imniei.aely fur the extra labor incidental to sprouting. It uiav he woll to add that sprouted seeds aVitild I not be planted until the grouud gets sufficiently warm to oauße tliciu to eouic up readily. ITILtTY OP 01, ASH. Whero melons or similar vegetables are grown, wooden boxes provided with glass tops can be employed to great ad vantage. These boxes uiay be ein structed of four boards about a foot long and ten inches deep. A pane of glass should be neatly fitted in the top, the bottom side being left open. After hills have bocn formed as already de scribed and the seeds planted in tbcin, said boxes should be placed over tluni so as to exclude thj- air. the prif advantages of tucsc boxes are as fol lows : 1. The seeds can be safely planted at least ten days earlier than they oan it) the opcu air. 2. The seeds will germinate with far j more certainty than those planted in the open air. 3. 'I he young plants will be protected from the ravages of insects. 4. Maturity will be hastened about three weeks—an important item in mar keting early vegetables. As the season advances, a little air should be given the plants at the bottom of the boxes. Finally, if it b« melons that are gruwn, when (ho vines aie about ready to jump, the boxes should be re moved and the manure dug away from them, leaving only enough to sustain them. After mixing will this inunure with dcrt, about half and half, it should be again drrwu .-round the plants. Thus arranged, the manure will act Car better thau if it wcro in a body, as the carbon ic acid gas of the atmosphere can more i readily penetrate to the roots of the plants, and the dirt mixed with the manure will prevent the plants from firing. IIHYAN TYSON. EARLY-MATURED HOGS. From an lowa standpoint, the veteran observer, C. F. Clarkson, mentions the | question of early and cheap ma!urit«. ( « f swine and says it is evident that farmers must decide on one of two courses. The old plan was to raise the strong hog which could stand profitably our liaid I winters, when he is from six to nine months old, and which will make a hog weighing from 300 to -100 pounds when i he is 18 to 20 months old. This class of hogs will not need much pampering or waiting on, but live all summer ou good pasturo and all winter on what they oan torugo, with tho aid of a small feed. This is the hog which was just suited to the old-fashioned system of raising and feeding. The ucw plan is to raise the improved hog, rapid iti growth, always fat and ready forinarkot at any age. lie must be a domestic hog of docile nature, winning confidence and an extra feed by his beautiful form and gentlemanly manners, lie should be abundantly nursed have a wide range of grass, plenty of fiue. cool water to drmk aud wallow in, and never have to live through a single winter. The question is, which will pay best. The I'ruirie Farmer reports two cases Mr. S. L. Shaw, of Leo county, 111., had a May pig which on November 17th weighed 230 pounds. This was six mouths old. Mr. Peter Pokus, of Ot tawa county, Mich., killed one pig six months old which weighed 240 pounds, and another eight months old weighing 300 pounds, Pigs wcighhg this amount at tueli ages, will pay for considerable petting and rich feed. This latter class of pigs never have to pay any taxes, aud stand only oue-thiid the ohauoe of be ing swept away by cholera. And from tho fact that they are more closely in olosed during the summer, they are not so much in dungor as when they range upon tho public highway whore dead hogs arc hauled, and where dogs fre quent. If pigs are kept in a pasture as far removed as possible from the public highway, and from sir emus which are polluted higher up in other farms, aud if every dog which comes on tho farm is shot on the spot, there is really | but little danger from cholera to pigs ! which mature at eight months old. GEORGE WASHINGTON'S SUIT.

Most of our young readers will be surprised to hear that tho well known nursery sorg of "Maty Had u Little Lamb" is a true story, and that "Mary" is still living. About 70 year*ago she j was a little girl the dauglitei ol a far- i iner in Worcester countv,Massachusetts. She was very fond of going with her father into tho to sao the sheep, and one day they fouud u baby lamb which was thought to be dead. Kiud bead'/"? JitjVjL ,>wever, !ift»J it ' up 1 'M»v ,v •*, »:»!, is it seetu' fto ■ breathe, SIR it homo, made it a warm bed near the stove, and nursed it 1 tenderly. Great was her delight when 1 after wet .'.s of careful feeding and watch ing. her little putiont began to grow well and strong, and soon ufter it was ' able to run about. It knew its young j mist less, perfectly, always cama at her | 1 call, and was j.appy only when at her j side. One day it followed her to the j village sohool, and, not knowing what else to do with it, she put it under her de;k and covered it with her shawl , There it stayed until Mary was called up to the teacher's desk to sav hor les son, and then the lamb walked quietly aftci her and the other children burst out laughing. So tho teacher had to shut tho little girl's pet in the wood shed until school was out. Soon after ! this a young tudent, namod John ({oil- ■ si ne, wrote a littlo pnrin about Mary ' and ber lamb and presented it to her. J Tho lamb grow to be a sheep aud lived for many years, and whan at last it died. \ j Mary griovod so much for it that her ! •jiothci took some of its wool, which was 1 •'as white as snow," and kuitted a pair i of stockings for her, to wear in remeui qrance of Icr darling. Some years af ter the lamb's death Mrs. Sarah Hall, a celebrated woman who wrote books, composed some verses about Mary's lamb and added them to those written by John Rolls to ue, making tho complete ' poem as #o know it. Alary took such gdod cafe of tne stockings uiade of her lamb's fleece, that when she was a grown up woman j she gave one of them to a church fair j in Huston. As soon as it bcuauio known that tho stock ng was made from the fleece of "Mary's little lamb'' everyone wanted a piece of it ; so the stocking was raveled out and tho yarn cut into short pieces. Kacb piece was tied to a card ou which "Mary" wrote her full name, and those cards sold so well that they brought the large sum of $l4O to the Old South Church. — Jlmerxcan .]%• riculiuralist. HOW PRESIDENT WASHINGTON LIVED. "The stylo of living of President Washington's family would not be tol erated in a I'resideut of these Demo cratic days," writes Frank (1.
