FODDER HAULER. A Very Convenient Implement to Hay* Around the Farm. A Kansas subscriber sends to the Orange J udd Farmer the sketch illustrated herewith- and vrrites: I call it the "Lightning- Fodder Hauler," and •consider it a very handy implement It is made of eight 0-inch IC-foot fence /boards (a, a, etc.),with one C-ineh fence "board 7 feet lon£ crosswise undcr- •neath in front (b). On top in front is a 2x0, 7 feet long- (fj, with eight bolts 5}j inches long through RURAL BREVITIES. "LIGHTNING" FODDER HAUI.EK. ifl, b and e. On the rear of top is an- 'other piece (d) just like c, throug-h i\vhich and the boards (a) are run eight iJi'-inch bolts 3% inches long. The ; heads of all bolts are underneath. Bore two holes for stakes (e., e) near the outer ends of hind cross piece (d). Fasten by chain in front, and half the terrors of fodder hauling have disap- jpeared. A cross section is shown at 'the right of the illustration. WORK IN THE GARDEN. In- TThat Should Bo Done in Sprinp to sure Good Results. Spring- is here and work plenty in the garden. One advantage of the north is, •that for the winter months but little can be done out of doors, and when the green buds begin to push out and the jjrass to grow, people are itching to be doing something- to help matters along. 'Pretty nearly everybody who has a plot 'Of land will make some kind of an leffort to clean up in springtime. The [first thing to do is to clean up all ileaves, rubbish, etc., and where this is (admissible, the better way is to bury it. lit helps, on decaying, to furnish ma- :terial for building up rtfw plant growth. 'Mower beds and places where anything is to be planted reqvft-e spading up, if small spaces around the house, if large, 'the plow will do it more expeditiously, •and it should not be forgotten that a coating of manure is beneficial to work in the soil. 1 Anything in the way of shrubs, trees or hardy border plants that are now •being more thought of than'.formerly, should be planted as soon as the ground is in fit condition, as if left to the last moment it is often too late, as de- •ciduous trees and shrubs do not transplant favorably when the leaves have 'burst out Flower-beds that stand for ; a long time in the same place and ;year after year are expected to grow ; aT>out the same kinds of plants will, if Inot heavily manured, be found to fail jto furnish the display they did at 'first. This is because some particular ipart of the soil that is necessary to the iwell being of the plant has been ex- •hausted. Some gardeners, where the :flower-beds are cut out of the grass or ilawn, make a new arrangement, re-sod :over the old spots, and cut new, ones ifrom fresh soil. Another way is to ; •add a portion of fresh new soil to the 'bed, and cart away a corresponding jpprtion of the old. It is all on the principle of rotation of crops, that the jfarmer finds beneficial in keeping his ifarm in what is called good heart.— jPrairie .Farmer. ALI. farmers who are studying their business as the merchant, the lawyer, the doctor and the banker study theirs will learn something from the agricultural experiment stations. AN observing farmer at an institute said: "Many farmers who keep boarding houses for cows run them on the European plan. The cow, however, always pays on the European plan. She only pays for what she receives; nothing more." TITE butter-maker who attempts to wander through the mysteries of his business without a thermometer is quite as foolish as the mariner who trusts himself far on the deep without a compass, and will quite as certainly come to grief. Do NOT spare sulphur from the mixture when you salt your cattle. It will cool and purify their blood, and probably save them from having the distemper or bloudy murrain. Sulphur is the only remedy I have ever found, says W. W. Hobson, in one of our exchanges. AVrtEN there is trouble about the separation of the butter from the milk, a correspondent of the American Agriculturist says that adding a quart of water at 04 degrees, in which a teaspoonful of sal t hai been dissolved, to each four quarts of cream, when ready to start the churn, with him reduced the time" of churning from three hours to twenty minutes. THE Tennessee Farmer is authority for saying that whole cotton seed can be cooked without other heat than that which it will generate itself. Add to the seed one-fifth of its bulk of wheat bran, wet with cold water, and thoroughly; place in a tight box, and mix in twenty-four hours the seeds will be so well cooked that they will mash easily between the thumb and finger. PEOF. WITOHER, of the New Hampshire experiment station, finds that the milk from his herd costs an average of 3.74 cents per quart on good feed. The best cow produced it at a cost of 1.59 cents, while the milk of the poorest cow cost 4.20 cents. On a richer ration the cost from the best cow was reduced to 1.32 cents, while the same ' cow fed on a poor, innutritious ration, the cost went up to 5.35 cents per quart Feed as well as breed is needed to make cheap milk. .mg vessels, and headed for New 'k. She held the fresh breeze rfor three days, and every one of these days she logged three hundred miles,- a fine daily record even for a steamship of the old-time kind. She had no head winds and a comparatively smooth sea throughout the voyage. She measures, says Once a Week, one thousand eight hundred and twenty-four tons, is two hundred and twenty-eight feet long, and has three decks. She was built at Bath in 1S74. PERMANENT Practical PASTURE. Ex- AMONG THE POULTRY. -. PUSH the early-hatched chickens by (liberal feeding. ' ALWAYS separate any fowls that show iany indications of sickness. ' Is many casses it will pay .to raise feed especially for your poultry. DUCKS and geese can be plucked now whenever the feathers are ripe. ' A CHANGE of feed is desirable, as the fowls tire of one kind if given too long. THE brooder must always be kept so •warm that the fowls will not crowd in iit A LITTLE flaxseed meal will be found raluable to add to the regular morning Seed. IT is rarely the case that a good laying breed will be the best as a table Ifowl. GOOD pasturage is almost indispensable in raising ducks and geese profitably. EVEN incubator chickens will be the better for running out on warm, pleasant days. USTIEB no conditions should the young fowls be fed along with the 'older ones. IP the fowls refuse their feed, or do not eat it up clean, let them miss a . meal or two. OXE object in feeding is to get an increase in size as much as possible, but at a low cost. CAKE must always be taken not to crowd the young; poultry in too close quarters at night Prp in young chickens can often be «nrcd by mixing a little black or ' cayenne pepper in their food. .. GUINEA fowls are not a good. market fowl by any means, but they lay a .large number of eggs and are a good fowl. Points Collated from the perienco of Dairymen. At a late meeting of the Illinois dairymen's association one speaker said he prefers sowing all lands of grass seed excepting clover, early in the fall, and that, as every square inch of ground is caj»able of containing seven grass plants, he uses 45 to 50 pounds of seed to the acre; or—as some seed weighs but 7 pounds to the bushel —from 2 to S bushels of seeds. For permanent pasture a mixture of varieties is necessary, so that animals may always find some fresh growth, but for mowing ground it is best that all ripen at the same time. He gives orchard grass the lead, both for pasture and meadow, as yielding most with least drain on the soil, and least liability to die out. It is a social grass, doing better in company with clover and other grasses than alone. He has had twelve years' experience with meadow seeded in early fall with 28 pounds orchard- grass, 4 of meadow fescue and 2 of oat- grass, following these S4 pounds with 4 of red clover or 2 of alsike, to be sown in the spring. All these mature at about the same time. For permanent pasture ground his. preference is for 20 pounds orchard grass, 5 of blue (green) grass, 4 of meadow foxtail, 8 of meadow fescue, 2 of rough-stalked meadow, 8 of timothy, 3 of fall oat grass, 2 of alsike clover, 2 of red clover and 4 of crested dogstail, nmking in all 47 pounds to the acre. An important point brought out by the American Dairyman counts against the policy ctf "soiling, although seldom taken into consideration. Grass grown in the shade, either of its own blades or. of trees or bushes, is never eaten by'animals except under pressure of starvation, and cannot be supposed to have much nutritive quality or to increase the yield of milk or flesh. Everyone who has oecasion to notice pasture ground has seen the short, sweet, nutritious grass growing in the full light eaten down constantly £nd patiently to the very dust, while close alongside whole mouthfuls might be taken at a bite of long blades looking as if good, but utterly rejected by the instinct of the grazing beasts. A large part of the heavy growth mowed and carried in for soiling must often be of this unsavory character.—W. G. Waring, in N. Y. Tribune.
