A Fariuets success in growinc Hummer
crops will be measured by his success in

Kowrlhe Icstlway to apulv the 'man tire
crop is another quest i n which the farmer
snotiiu: now decide. It it is to be simdi.-d
to the 'next corq crop, it should be drawn
to, and spread on the ground as it is made.
This costs little or nothing; the team is
idle and so is fanner or hired man. A lit
tle exercise will be useful to both man
and team and may be used in this way to
alvantage. There will be nlentv of time

I MIXED HUSBANDRY.
BT ,K. it.
We often hear the remark that the
"Farmer is the ! most indenendent. he.
ratise be can grow all he wants to eat."
This sounds like independence, to be sure.
but it , is not at way 8 carried out to this
extent: I ho farmer, like every other
business man, wot ks for money, and will
makrior deal most exclusively in those
articles that will afford the most nrofit
His business will be varied ar.eordinr tr
the soil, climate and market facilities of
bis location. ,j i
. Ths farmer, every where, must have
Hve stock he can't farm without it. God
policy will dictata that ho should grow
all the food he want Air this stock, anVl
tboei who do not work on the farm, in
cluding his family. Outside of tlijs, he
should grow extensively such crops as he
an grow and sell to the largest profit, but
uot cou fine himself to one business, for if
that line fails, his business is crippled
fhiainpiallyrtnd 1 he is in want of funds
to rairy on the next year operations.
In; some sections of the country, corn
ii ihj leading crop, but this fails in some
seasous, so it is bt tter to have a crop of
wheat, or oine;other grain to fall back
iipon In some places, hay is the crop
depended fort i for money, this too, f iU
someiimfsand a reserve of corn or wheat
would be valuable. J 11 others cotton or to
hccd are the Jeadmg crop?. They too
fail sometimes, or prices decline, so that
a good crop of corn would help out very
inact?. In dairying districts, milk, butter
or clieese ire most profitable, but these
branches are necessarily connected with
grain growing, and ;are always sure to
produce affair supply of money, when
CMUirel edby good management. Stoek
raisers, except in some southern localities
must nectssaiily grow grass andtain.
In stock raising, just at the . present
tiaoe, porkfis very low and everybody is
killing off jnearly all their hogs, this is
e,1,ir ,J a mistaken policy, as it is sure
to cause a Scarcity, and force prices to go
up, then they have no hogs to sell. The
better way is to keep on in the even tenor
of your wayvraieitiff each ver find. rmn.
andjstock as will pay you a fair profit, not
ing the lush mice of thi r tl.
low-price of that article. We have tmn-t
invariably 'found that! extreme high pri
ces of any particular article stimulates
over production and entails loss otHhe
producer. I I !
To sum up A mixed system of Agri
culture will be found iu be the safest ev.
ery where; Special leading crops may
v i U ovuactiuieB, out 11 is f.ot tl ways
10 depend on them. Good, clean
cultHre.-verT , part of the work at the
right lime, and doue weil, is the best safe-ardaMiust'tailttre.

Description and Treatment of Distemper

is very contagious. Homes will take it
from each other at considerable distances
apart. In glandt r.', infection, proceeds

ittaeks a horse the second time. Colts
and young animal-, who are especially
subject to it will take it from older one"
but seldom communicate it to them. Y t
it will be folly 10 calculate upon any ex
emptions when it fcretks out in a stable

. - IIMU Ik.
Like glanders and f trey, distemper is
most frequently generated by filth and
bad keeping. It is undoubtedly epidemic
in cn trader, however ; bnl, like cho
I - 1
it is always most at home in those local
ities where filth and miasma are most
anunuant. Cleanliness ma' be set down
as essential to a cu"C.
Treatment. The treatment, in its frPn-
eral features resembles that fr glanders.
Bleed iu the neck vein, faking about three
pints of blood; tben take and thoroughly
mix together one table spoonful f f irtut-
powder, one f laid, one of soft m ,Pi two
of tar, and of pulverized gum m : 1 i : put
a spoonful of this down the horses thru at,
as far as you can, with a paddle or spoou.
Do this twice a day. The object is not
so much to have him swallow it, as it is
to have it lodge about the glands of the
throat. It will have the effect to stimu
late their natural discharge into the tuouth
and then will keep them open. At the
same time, make a strong decoction of
tobacco, as hot as the hoise can bear it
with whkh wash his neck and throat Re
peat this two or three times a day. In
an abscess actually gathering, but is not
100 far advanced, this treatment will be
likely to drive it away. If the dieas
is iu its early stage, tlie patrenrwill gel
wen in a tew days.
KNOWLEDGE REQUIRED IN
There are many who look upon farm
ing as rather a suull business, who think
that its successful prosecution requires
only a little common sense just enough
to prompt the hardy worker to seek
shelter iu a rain storm, and a very luile
knowledge, just sufficient to count a fiork
of sheep, or read a political newspaper.
The opinion was once more general than
now, for the world is graving wiser, yet
at ihe present time it is eutertaiued by
many. It is an old and true saying, that
"honor and shame from no condition rise,"
that honor is only acquired by acting
well our part in w hatever situation we
may be placed. A mail of ability and
kuowlege who devotes all his energies to
his business will make it honorable and
profitifble 110 matter how insignificant that
business may at first seem. There Is no
business requirements, so much kuowlege,
so much good judgment and coinWrcial
anility combined, as ia necessary for the
thoroughly accomplished farmer. ll
stands first among the manufacturers of
the land, be makes the wheat and corn,
the beef and mutton and p'ik, the wool
and flax; and manufactures from the
earth, the air, the wiiter, nearly all that
we eat and wear; and this not only done
by farmers as a class but almost every'
one produces many if uot all of these ar
ticles. Tire manufacturer usually confines his
labors to the production of one article,
but the farmer is by necessity compelled
to make many. If he would make grain
he must also make beef or ' butler and
cheeae, or mutton and well. Hence the
necessity of extensive knowledge. It is
aucasy matter for the manufacturer to

People generally think that all women
young or old, whatever their taste or in
whatever direction their talent lies, ought
to like homework. If a young man has
a taste for auy particular vocation he is
awarded great commendation for profici
ency in thai vocation, no matter how liulo
he may. know of anything else. If he
takes naturally to jouru tlisra, it ia not
considered his duty to woi k with hoe or
spade all his 1 fc. But custom and pre
judice have marked ont e vocation for
1 woman and that is hou-ewoik, and
uniess sue excels in this el
Men are apt :o sneer at women who
are inefli-. ient in household duties, but did
man ever lliink that if his own sex wen-
all to f.llow any one special business
there might be some who wottlj prove
incompetent ? For instance, supposing
agriculture should be laid d.wn as
the only God allotted sphere for man
o,"m"u" " ; ua.ciy ii t,'f. as many
slack farmeir. .is we do now of house
keepers 1 We expert -.in to attain
excellence in or., directio.: nly, namely,
one for hidi be has a particular taste.
Is it 1, of insulting then, to require that all
women who from lime immemorial have
had almost no advantages of education
compared with men, and many of honi al
ready excel iu some departments of learn
ing, should attain the very maximum ef
excellence in house-wifery, for which some
have no taste ? Of Conrse we do net deny
that it is better to be a good hoosekeecr
than a poor one, but sun ly no one ought
to expect all women to like housekeepimr
equally well, any more than to expect all
men to like farming, tailoring or any oth
er pursuit equally well.
It w i II be a great blessing when people
learn thai women have as noble aspirations
it ever beat within the breast of mar.
Every f ir sighted person can see that
there is as much difference in the tastes of
women as in those of men, and lie who
knows it not, uudersianls not hnmau na
Hire aright. Cor. Christian Union.
High farming is harmonious ; every
part fits every Other like tim'jcra framed
by a nus cr cirpeuter. Rich food will
make heavy firm pork, and large deep
collorcd Pggs. Its bem fits do i.ot end
here. There ia life and potency iii tin;
very excrements. Its lich manures will
make a grain of seed w heat stool ont and
yield a dozen heat's, and all the heads
will be long and heary, and filled with
plump white berries. Your bushel will
weigh a pontid or two above the standard
and yon will got from thirty tn thirty
five such luhe!s from each acre cf the
COST OF RAG CARPETS.
There is something of a discussion go
ing on among the housewives as to wheth
er it pays to make rag carpet. Whde
both parties may be correct, speaking
from their own standpoints, we behave
that, generally speaking, in the firmer
family it does pay, for when a carpet ia
made at hosuu old garment' are preserved,
odds and ends saved, the little girls, given
employment, and then one knows jnst
what she has got for a carpet. A lady
writer in the American Farm Journal
counts up the cost as follows :
Perhaps it m ould be well to count the
cost of thirty yards of carpet and see
whether it pays or not. I got ten pounds

FRUIT BY A NEW
At the recent annual meeting of the

beautiful specimena of dried fruil from

These were doue 011 what is called the

a wooden m x five feci square and fifteen
feet high. A large coil of pipo at the
botiojn is kept heated by the steam to
about ISO drg., andJ a current of air is
sent upward through it. The fruit, pre

frames or httrdlea, and by the action of
the endless chains gradually descends to

ASHES OF HARD AND SOFT
It is generally supposed that the ahes
of pine wood is not so rich in alkalies as
tlmtof hard wood. In his "Mnck Maun
al," Dr. Dana tnys that, "in eqnl
wfights, pine ash hffirds four times more
alkali than the ash of hard wood." At the
same time a bushel of bard wood ashes
ieias more lk.l than a bushel of
pipe wood ashca ; tUeiiah of the pine be
ing much the lightest. According to
analysis, only nbottl 13 part- in abu-i

? THE FAAlINE IN PERSIA.
The Times of India, in its overhnd
summary, says :
:Famine continues its ravages in Per
sia, and the extent -of it will never fully
bfi known. Much aa we know of tin
misery this wide spread, long continued
famine has wrought; it is strange that e
hear nothing of any! organized and sus
tained effort for the allevintiou being made
by the Persian government. The starv
ing people are left to look after them
selves; such as can leave country do so;
such as cannot mtiit'die, nnlees relief from
some unexpected qsarter reaches them
As is usual, disease has appeared iu the
districts to complete what famine had
bepun. Letters from Yezd and Bonder
Abbas Ultimate thai cholera is committing
sad ravages among the population.
jSoine 500 attenuated Zroaatrians had
reached Bunder Abbas, l.i.t. as they weie
neatly all rick, iW Persian auiiioi tie
placed tbcoo iu quarantine, and prevented
their leaving the place where they were
enc-tmped. Moreover, the owners of the
caravan with which they had traveled
impounded thei children as security for
expenses incurred dining tha transit, and
these were only delivered up when a
Parsee geutlctnan paid ihr sum demanded
from funds placed at his disposal by chari
table persons in India. Large partiea
arrive in Bombay from Persia b cverv
vessel from the Petsian Gulf, and special
facilities" arc afforded by the various eLip
ping companies trading between Indi
and the Gulf ports, to that the prviaium
of the sufferers are' in a great measure
oyer as jjoou as they reach the coast.
