I The plan advocated in a corumunicai tSon to r the TELKQEAPH, a few days eince, of MoA'damiziniT the road from Kortb ' Alton to Godfrey, meets with great favor from the farmers of Godfrey and vicinity. The distance between the two places mentioned is less than four miles and the road < could be rendered passable at all, seasons and at a small outlay compared with the benefit to be derived from the. improvement. A farmer. makes the suggestion that if a store of MoAdam could be placed at some spot easy of access almost every man bringing a wagon load of produce to this oily: woald take on going away a load of McAdam and dump it where it would do the , most gooti. The improvement in ques- Ut>n 'would not only benefit the farm' ing eommunity but would be » .great boon to our merchants by increasing their trade at whatjare now the dullest seasons. i iU,r -' The roadi are beoomiug Rood.

FrliM Offered for JBfchlblt* In HoHlcult- ro4not*MAftHouitak*l M*;w* froul gtotloti* Of tk« Oonntry-.HoW *nd Wh.n to Prnn* Blackberries Amateurs art always at a loss as to tbe beat time and best methods of pruning. The experienced grower knows that good fruits alone yield him profit, whllo the production of Inferior ones is inevitably connected with a loss. Ho knows, too, that it is the neglected, unpruned' bushes that yield the small, dry and flavorless raspberries nnd blackberries. BLACKBERRY PLAKTB. For the benefit of /amateurs we let an' experienced grower give a chapter from ovoi-y day life, Tallowing are Mr. B. P. Roe's opinions, as expressed In Orchard and Garden: The most judicious method consists 'In ."heading or pinching back" the main canes during the growing season. The energy'of the ; plnnt is thus thrown into that part which is to be retained for fruiting. Stout, well matured canes and strong laterals, are the result of such treatment. Jn order to make the matter quite plain to beginners, Is published a cut showing two blackberry plants as they appear on or about the 1st of •February, when properly pinched back last season; also one , plant as It will Bjjpear after its first pruning. ' •'• ' ' ' ' ' : ^Blackberry and black raspberry plants when thus pruned ought not to stand over three feet high. For the red raspberries, Mr. Hoe prefers the "pinching back" method in the fall, without any further pruning.•-, In strong clay Bollsj'the latter are /liable to sucker much too freely, and need a general overhauling, thinning and cleaning up in the spring. This spring pruning may now ba done at any time when the weather will permit. Now li a good time to feed your crops. Well composted barn yard manure, free from weed seed, is .all right; for strawberries and'raspborrles. '. !Wood -ashes are one of the best fertilizers, and may be applied at the rate of from fifty to 100 bushels to the acre, and perhaps upward. Carbonate of potash, one of the chief constituents of wood ashes, tends to retain moisture—just what Is needed in the strawberry patch. Ashes, therefore, are doubly valuable, as they supply both food and drink. If ashes are not at hand, or too expensive, muriate of potash nnd pure bone dust maybe applied. Mr. T. H. Hale recom- • mends a mixture of 500 pounds of the former nnd 1,000 pounds of the latter per acre, and this, we believe, Is about correct In most cases;:but less potash : will generally do .on clay soils, while more of It may be beneficial for very sandy soils. A Convenient House for Fowls. There Is' no kind of use to feed fowls well and then fall to'keep theni warm nnd and dry. They will not, indeed 'they cannot, give egg profit. when not comfortably housed during inclement weather. Warmth nnd comfort through the winter season Is the great secret of success. A PRACTICAL POULTRY DOUSE. The sketch for a poultry house here given is designed,for twenty-five to thirty fowls, and makes a'practical and comfortable house. The ground plan may be about 10x20 feet and S or 0 feet high at the corners or eaves. There is a division in the middle, with a good sized window In each .division facing the south, and a pair of shutters/ to each window for closing tip at pleasure; outside door on the west end. roosting rocks in each division and nest boxes Jn the west. Mill 0 OUOUND PLAN Of POULTBy.lIOtJSE. Lino the whole Inside with black building paper for warmth. The tnr In dark paper Is not inviting to lice and other vermin. A poultry yard may extend either way trorn the building, with a door or passageway (or convenience. - A World correspondent, who bus tested this poultry bouse, says with regard to breedst "I prefer tho Plymouth Rocks and Brahmas for the whole year round to any other. They are good for eggs aud Tery quiet. Tho Rock chicks, are hardy and get their growth' early,: Tho flesh of either kind Is excellent "Tho tidy little I/oghorn Is considered a non-setter and an everlasting Inyen It is constitutionally shy, nervous and peppery, and cannot keep still long enough to hatch out a family of ehlckena. Its weight Is light, and the flesh not as good as most other kinds. "The only'objection I over heard against the Bocks is that they like to set pretty often. I think myself they do, hut they nre easily broken up aud soon return to their former usefulness." Ilovr uud When to Run the Plow. As the time and inanuar of plowing varies to meet the requirements of different Boils and localities, no dollnlte rules may bo laid down by which to govern tho operation, but ouch piece of land must bo considered by itself and broken up n't A •eoson iiiul In a stylo best suited to its own neccssitlen. There are, however, some prluctplea underlying the whole matter ivMcb trill assist each farmar la deciding whether ho shall practice fall or spring.'tawing, and at what depth to to set tho plow. Light, aandy land, generally speaking, should be plowed in the spring and ex- perlonoe has proven, in most cases, that land near the sea, which is rarely covered With sno$yj>r6duce8 better whefi '•. brbken In the aptlng, thnn it this be done,in:the autumn. On the other htmd, liecty day •oil appears to require the alternate freez- ings and thawlngs of winter to pulverize it. Pi6ld» foul with,weeds are greatly bono- JHdd by fall plowing; whlfch turns under tho noxious growths •with- the stalko 6f the ciopYbefoi'o their seed matures, and not only destroys them, but. forces them bcrioath tho liuid. Tho exposure of pestilent Insects to tho weather is another argument In favor of full plowing.' The. depth of the soil and the ''character of the subsoil, Jnust determine the question of deep and Shallow plowing 1 , tho sub- doll, ns'a rule, ought not to bo brought out of its bed' except in small quantities,, to be exposed to the atmosphere during tho winter and cprlng, or in a Bummer' tallow, nor even then except when such, fertilizers are applied as ore necessary to' put it at once into a productiA-o condition. The indifferent soils of opposite character, as n stiff clay and sliding sand, sometimes occupy tho relation of surface and subsoil to each other. When thoroughly incorporated and subjected lo deep cultlvntlon, these will produce a Boll of grcoUy Increased value. River soils, having good natural drainage, take kindly to deep plowing, as do the black, pormis and fertile limestone soils. • Land that 'is dry; with but u few inches of good soil,'will not,' of course, produce as good crops by deep, ns by shallow plowing. Deep plowing is ill advised when a basin i« formed below a certain lino in which water will settle and remain until it con escape by evaporation. Such soils require drainage, after which' the plow can bo set deep. ' < .'••'• -,-,... To sum up tho whole subject briefly: thin soils with worthless subsoils must be plowed shallow until tho.farmer can afford tho expense of eubsollins and heavy manuring for a number of years. Deep, clay loams aud alluvial coils bear deep plowing. Wet 'lands should be drained' previous to deep plowing. Tho medium course, i. c., plowing from flve to six inches deep, is exempt from the..injurious results of the. two.oxtremes. .,' - XHEBEST TSJNQ KNOWN ...... »on In Hard or Soft, Hot or Cold Water.
