Application of Ashes.

I most importaut ingredient in the compost
neap, l wenty bushels of leached ashes
dressing for grass lauds. Experiments at
the Maine Statu Colleire farm show that
ashes were more lasting in their effects
on grass, than any oth'er fertilizer applied.
The soil was a strong clay loam, i We
have been general rather than defintt iu
speaking of the quantity of ashes to be
ed, wood ashe contain aboJt efghti and
one half per cent of potash, but the leach
ing: takes out nearly all tlie potash, j pos
sibly one or one and a half per cent I may
be left, and some other soluble matters.
It is true tuat a lew sous may be so
charged with potash that crops growing
on them will not be markedly increased by
an application of ashes of the quantity
above specified, but as also stated (most
soils will be. grateful for their presence.

to kill mischievous rats. A morning pa

was a society; for the prevention of cruel
ty to animals, but none tor the prevention
of cruelty to human beiugs.

The Candy Business.
The amount of candy manufactured in
this country is far greater than is usually

the rest of the world combined. New
York has, until recently, made most of
the caudy; but now Boston is a large man-
ufacturer. Within a few years, many
small houses, mostly French, have sprung
up here, and reduced the price materially.
Boston has three large manufactories,
employing some 300 workmen, and pro
ducing over 4,000 tons of candy annually.

suraed hi New England, the remainder
going Chiefly to the provinces of the West.
Boston makes, altogether, more than
5,000 tons, using something over 2000

so much more money to spend that we
