To prevent Jly from destroying turnip, always
choose apiece otfioir land for your turnip patch,
plough and harrow It until you get It very fine,
then manure it well with ashes, or well rotted
liable manure ; sow your turnip seed with Indian
meal, that, you may tee whether you sow it too
thick or too thin, then harrovf in 'he seed with an
iron tootrr harrow, be not afraid of putting them
in too deep if you bueh them in, they are scarcely
covered, they are up before the root has taken any
hold, and lying on the surface of the ground, they
nearly all perish the first dry spell that follows
after their coming up, and you find it very con
venient, without further inquiry, to cry out Oh !
the cursed fly has eat tip all my turnips ; but
choose poor land, make lijtne and rich, and cover
your seed deep, and they will fly away to your
neiibor..riie advice, here Kivejv rests on the
authority and practice of an experienced cultiva
tor, on the Reisterstown road, who has not missed
a crop of turnips for thirty years. For the com
mon turnip, sow between the 20th and the last
day of July. If you want them tweet, a week or
ten days later will make them so.

To caso pain in a horse's foot, or to make a
dry, hard, brittle or contracted foot supple and
expand, I know nothing equal to boiled Unseed,
applied warm to the foot.

When the foot be wounded by picking up a
nail, cut by. glassoorjjy some other accidentf in
which case gravel may have got into the foot, it
will be necessary to apply a common poultice
with Venice turpentine, to draw the gravel out.

Never on any account grease a horse's hoof,
which all-wise John Grooms do, as they say, to
keep it from cracking ; grease has a contrary ef

and dab their hoofs well, morning' and evening,
with stale chambe lie.
Different effect of Chamberlie and Greate on a
Take a dry hoof of a horse, cut it in half, steep
one half for several days in a pot of chamberlie,
and the other in a pot of grease ; take them out,
wash them both clean, and lay them aside. In a
short time you will find the one steeped in cham
berlie tough, genial, and pliant, the other steeped
in grease; will be hard and brittle : this has been
tried. You may anoint the coronet of the foot
with a little fresh grease, but no other part.

whether a horse be lame in the shoulder or not. J
When you trot the horse, if he be lame in the
shoulder, the muscles are affected, so as to pre
vent his extending that leg, or stepping out so far
with it, as he will with the other leg ; he will step
considerably shorter with that leg. When the
lameness lies below, he will extend the lame leg
as (ar "as the other ; but, when he puts the foot to
the ground, will shew lameness. If the cause of
lameness be not very visible ta the eye, you may
rest assured it lies in the foot or fetlock joint ; In
this case, send for a veterinary surgeon ; for, to
cure it, great skill and practice is necessary, and
a thorough knowledge pf the anatomy of the
foot, ,and fetlock joint. I have known several
horses totally spoiled by lameness in the feet, and
never fit for any other use but to draw a cart or
waggon, where they nevet are forced beyond a
