AND WARDEN. OF INTE&ESt AGRtCULtURALJSTS. f 5 t?f» to Date Mints About Cultltft- t»on of ttife Soil and Yields Thereof-* Horticulture tltlcnltnfe ftnd florl- colture. 1'IovHng, A sub-committee, instructed to report its suggestions on plowing to the Massachusetts state board of agriculture, submitted the following: The importance of the proper preparation of the soil for the reception of the seed can not be too highly estimated. The correctness of this proposition will be readily admitted by those who remember the fact that silch a preparation is absolutely necefi* sar,y to insure paying success in the raising of any given crop. Not only is the germination of the seed affected by neglect in this matter; but the future growth of the embryo plant will also be seriously, if not disastrously, retarded by it. The laws of nature will not be annulled nor suspended to accommodate those who from ignorance neglect, or from shilf- lessness fail, to obey those laws. The complete and thorough pulverization of the soil is essential in order that the tiny and tender rootlets of the growing plant may not be hindered nor baflled in their tireless search for subsistence. In this preparatory work the plow performs the initial, and, in some respects, the most important part; for no succeeding operations with harrow, cultivator, horse or hand hoe, can compensate for the failure of the plow to do its work well The application of scien- tiQc rules and principles in the construction of this important implement, KO as to secure ease in draft as well as in the holding-, has made this part of the work comparatively easy and pleasant to both team .and plowman. To secure first-class work (and no other will answer the purpose), three things are absolutely necessary—a good plow, that is, one well adapted to the nature of the work to be done, a well-trained and able team.and last, though by no means least iu importance, a skillful plowman. The improvements in the construction of the plow that the last forty years have witnessed have been wonderful indeed. The contrast between the clumsy, ill-constructed, and unsightly wooden plow, shod with wrought iron, used forty years ago, and the trim, bright, and sharp-cutting steel plow of to-day, though great indeed, is not greater than the difference in the character of the work performed. The "cut and cover' 1 work of former years, with, in many instances, but a precious little of either "cutor cover," has been, succeeded by the well-cut, neatly turned, and properly disintegrated furrow of to-day, with the difference in ease of after cultivation, and the ultimate results secured as widely variant. Points oil nuckwhcat. TV. E. Farmer, writing in American Cultivator, says: Despite the low prices of wheat, corn and many other grains, buckwheat has sold fairly we! this season, and proved remunerative to those who happened to grow it last season. Many farmers will be turning their attention from corn and wheat to oats and buckwheat this season, and a word about its culture may not be amiss just before the seeding time. If the market reports of any oJ the leading cities Ere studied they will find that there is a wide difference in the quotations of buckwheat, different qualities and varieties varying, from 1 to 0 or 7 cents per bushel. Even 4 cents a bushel would mean enough on products of a large farm to determine the question of profit and loss. If the buckwheat brought to market, and thus variously rated in value, was examined by any practical farmer or grower it would not take him long to decide that there is really a great difference in the grain. Such an examination would be of benefit to every one engaged in agriculture. He would go home again and decide to raise only the finest. It is true that there are certain soils and localities that are jusi suited to the culture of buckwheat, and excellent grain is grown there without very much cultivation. But the fair buckwheat soil can be made to produce as good grain as any that comes to market. The soil for buckwheat needs to be only mediuni in fertility, but the culture must be good. Virgin woodland soil is excel*. lent for this grain. If the soil is too rich the grain does not fill well, and the stains lake all the nutriment,' Buckwheat can consequently come after another crop very well without extra fertilizing. It is an excellent crop to BOW on land where oats, barley or corn have been sown, but do* Utroyed by bad weather, Such land seeded t-o buckwheat right away will help the owner put of his difficulty and save him from the entire lose Pf hip crop, The be$t time for sowing the crop is the last of June av the first of July, Very early yoge tables can be sown on the land »nd harvested ' before it is necessary to sow the buckwheat, and two crops way thus be gathered. Gopd pasture ,or clover land may be u§e4 fpr the purppse, and the first crop pj ajj fee, fe£ tp tt»e cattl^ pr har» befpr^ it Is tipe tp spw the mtist heeded. Prolonged and Bive drotlth ift August will SOfngtifflea blast fcotna of the flowers, but taking it all In all the drop is about as sure as any that we can raise on thfc fafih. nntl CoWpeaS for tht) Jforth. The value of pefta as a fodder crop is just beginning to be appreciated by nofthefn and western farmers, w/ites C. S. Walters in Germaritoxvn Telegraph. Until very recently the COST- peas wef-6 supposed to be fit onljr lot edutherii Iftnd where the gfasS would not grow well. Hut we &re now pretty well satisfied from experience that dowpeas should not be restricted to the south, but there is a real mission fbt them to perform in the h6f th, But the mission is not the same probably in the two sections. In the south cowpeas are essentially for a forage drop, but in ouf colder climates they are more valuable for turning under as jfreen manure. Clover and corn grow so rapidly and luxuriantly here that it will be some time before bettef for' 1 age plants can be obtained. Still, cowpeas can and have been cultivated in the north for forage crops with re* suits that are highly satisfactory. The cpwpeas are rapid growers, and in eighty-five days from sowing,the crop is a large one and tfeady for turn* ing under. As a fertilizer this crop ranks almost equal to clover, but we have to wait eighteen months for a good crop of the latter to turn under. The cowpeas are sown early in the spring as soon as the land is warm enough for seeds, and they spring up rapidly and mature without any danger from being killed by extreme weather. In the case of clover, however, considerable risk is run, and there is danger of the whole crop being killed either in the middle of the summer or from winter cold. Uesides, clover is hard to "catch" on most soils, whereas cowpeas do well on any kind of a fair soil. The contrast between the two crops for green manure is thus all in favor of the cowpeas. The vines of the cowpeas are large enough to separate the soil in which they are plowed so that they induce porosity in very thick, heavy land. The vines rot and decompose rapidly, so that within a few months after they have been turned under the green manure is almost ready to be absorbed by the plants. Two bushels of seed to the acre will yield a' very largo crop even in our cold states, and the vines should grow over ;ibwp feet high. In the'south the pea vines have considerable feeding value that nearly all farmers .avail themselves of. For sheep the cowpeas might prove of considerable value in the north. We have just had it demonstrated to us at the experiment stations that there is no better food • for sheep than our common garden peas. The pea vines are all rich in nutritious food, and the peas themselves contain elements that can not be supplied in any more convenient form. ' Those interested in raising peas for sheep should sow the field with about two bushels of the small Canada field pea with one bushel of oats to the acre. About as many peas are obtained- in this way as if thgy were sown alone. The results are much better by mixing, for the oats will yield a fair crop after the peas have been gathered. The sheep should be fed most of the crop green, but when the vines are cured and kept for winter use they eat nearly everything up, including vines and old peas. Importance of Thinning Crops. I am siiusfied that but few farmers know the importance of thinning. They seem to think that nothing needs thinning but corn, sa.ys L. W. Anderson in Farm and Home. One bought some raspberries of me and said: "Come look at my vines and tell me what is the matter with them; they are a good kind, but won't bear," I looked and saw at once. I said: "How many stalks have you in each hill?" He laughed and said, "Abou t forty." I said: 'tVhat is the use of carrying your brains around with you if you don't use them?" There are ten strawberry plants where should be one as a rule. One good, thrifty, well-formed blackberry or raspberry stalk is worth a dozen over-crowded, thriftless limbless ones, once planted a big potato whole to get big potatoes and got a big hill full of little potatoes. It would have been all the same if I had planted a big oar of corn whole in a hill arid expected big corn, Potatoes should bo thinned to pne or two eyes before planting. Few farmers do it. To thin my crop as I ought has taken wore nerve than anything I have undertaken on the tarnj. • THE FAHM DAY—We do not look favorably upon this fourteen hours a day on the farm as the period set apart for hard labor. It is a slavish practice and never ends well, A man may oe* ?asipnally in some unforeseen way pet oto sircunistances, that compel such a sacrifice for a limited J4rne, and tbi§ is e*cusable,but to go deliberately about arranging one's affairs with the ex* jectatipn of putting in this amount pf '4nje at manual labor In each twenty- bur hours of tae season is put of reason.

There has been Mature through the paMetei (the membrane; which f offfis the ificld sures) pf some el the cells, and they have evidently communicated with each other, as the aif could be easily forced from one tjortion of the cells to another, The*e was also a urepatat- ing aoisfe while this pressure was made, as if the attenuated members of the cells had givett away. When an animal Is suffering from heaves or broken wind there is a peculiarity of breathing which can not be mistaken, particularly directly after violent exercise. The air IB drawn into the lungs in less time by a heavy horse than a sound oae, aud With a perceptible degree of labor. The effort of expelling air is accompanied by a peculiar difficulty which requires a double effort, in the; first of which as described by Mr. Elaine, the muscles operate, and iu the other the auxiliary muscles, particularly the abdominal, arc put on the stretch to complete the expulsion more perfectly; and that being done the flank falls, or the abdominal muscles relax with a kind of jerk. From this peculiarity of breathing the name heaves has been given. The disease is generally preceded and accompanied by a peculiar cough, a cough perfectly characteristic, and by which an experienced horseman would detect the disease in the 'dark. When the disease has become established there is no possibility of a cure, for the ruptured cells can never be repaired. Much can be done, however, to ward off the disease and also alleviate it. More depends upon the food and exercise than is generally supposed. Horses that are greedy feeders, and eat large quantities of slightly nutritous food, when' worked or driven upon a full stomach, are the ones most likely to be affected, lience the disease is more common among farmers' horses, which are fed mostly upon bay, than among those kept in livery stables and cities where the ration of hay is limited and grain is fed regularly. Narrow-chested horses are more subjected to heaves, than deep-chested ones. . Many advocate feeding cut hay or chaff to heavy animals. Youatt objects to this, and advises feeding good hay sparingly, with a bufficient quantity of oats to supply the nutriment required. Dusty and mow-burnt hay should be avoided. Water sparingly, particularly in the morning and through the day when the animal is exercised. Green food is always preferable to dry. Carrots are particularly useful. They are rapidly digested and appear to have a peculiar beneficial effect upon the respiratory system. The horse affected with heaved should have moderate exercise every day. He should never be left standing in draft of wind, and should always have a blanket thrown over him when, standing in harness out of doors or u-nder an open shed. The following mixture will generally be found bene 'ficial, viz.: Ground ginger, four ounces: powdered licorice root, two ounces: phosphate of toda, one ounce. Mix and give a teaspoonful in the grain night and morning. It is not advisable to breed from a stallion suffering from this complaint, and the offspring of heavy mares are believed to be much more susceptible to the disease than those from sound ones.

A mess of partially eaten food left in his trough is distasteful even to a hog, and makes him eat less in quantity and with less relish than he otherwise would, One of the principal advantages in keeping a variety of r.tock on the farm, is that a large number can be kept in proportion to the pasturage and the amount of food, A steady, every day growth will, in nearly all cases, cost less per pound than cramming or high feeding; but this should never be made an excuse for stinting the ration. The small farmer needs the benefits to be derived fi*om the keeping of good stock fully as much as the larger farmer, and at present prices there is no reason why he should npt secure them.

Inch by inch the gray jackets had retired from the Tennessee mountains, contesting every vantage ground down to ICenesaw. But strive as they might, the advancing 1 column of Sherman's'leg-ions was too much for them, and even, from the heights of Kenesaw mountain we Were driven. down through the Altooha hills to the Chattahoochee river. On J'uly 18, 1864, dtlsty and battle stained, We stood on the banks of that stream and gazed Upon its Waters 'rolling aldtig far beiow, Masking our cannon on the bluff that overlooks Mckajaek' creek, we made a break for the river; little 'dreaming that there was a Yankee 'Within twenty miles of us. In alrew minutes the river was full of naked "rebs" disporting in the Waters so delicioUsly cool after that long, hot march through the Altoona hills. We were only COO or 700 yards above the mouth of Niekajackafid the Water was quite shallow, as the long drouth had brought the river down. Suddenly from the direction of Nickajack there was a "pow, pow, pow," but the bullets came whistling along only to splash the watei* harmlessly, the range being too long. Imagine the amazement with which we beheld a squadron of Federal cavalry at the mouth of the Nickajack, blazing away at us with their carbines, and only prevented from completing our surprise by their inability to ascend the almost perpendicular bluff that; rose in our side of the sti'eara. There* were some 5,000 of tis, but our numbers counted little when wo had not even the protection of an undershirt from those vicious bullets, and n6ae of us knew the moment .some jun might prove superior and send a ball into bur naked bodies. Our.bath was spoiled, and never did !5,000 men dress more quickly than we did. ,Jn; a twinkling.we were in line and the'/ waters of the Chattahoo- liee were gliding along again undis- iurbed. ; The high hills cut in twain by Nickajack creek-• toweretl high above the little-stream oti : either side, uusing it to ba impassable, and for /hat reason we had taken up our position in the angle between the creek and the river. Having o\ir rear well protected, we could make a determined stand. Beyond the river it vas only... eight or nine miles, to At- 1 .anta, and we wanted to keep Sherman on the western side just aa long as possible. It was a calm, sultry summer afternoon, with not a cloud in the sky, and never' was there a H more peaceful scene. Suddenly 'there was' a crash from the opposite- side of Nickajack ike the combined roar' of half a mudred thunder claps, and a great jloud of smoke arose 'from the woods. The Yankees had opened the ball, but Imost like an echo of their own challenge came the reply from our : own masked batteries, and thunder answered thunder till the earth trembled. • , . The combined artillery of the two great armies was concentrated in a fierce duel with only the narrow gorge of'the Nickajack between. It was the most impressive scene I 'ever witnessed. The Yankees had stolen a march on us, and but for that lit'ule narrow gorge we would have emerged from our bath prisoners of war. -High above the trees arose the dense cloud of smoke, blotting out the struggling rays of sunset. Finally darkness ended the conflict, and in the darkness' we stealthily crossedthe river and took UP a position on the naked bluff on the eastern shore, hastily throwing up a line of breastworks from the mouth of a'little ravine entering- the river almost opposite the mouth of Nickajack, extending up the river for quite a distance. Back of us was an open wheat field, and there was-not even a twig to shelter us from the blazing $un when it mounted the heavens. Of cpurse our breakfast consisted of such scraps as-our knapsacks contained,for, on the western bank, the bluff being higher than ours, was arrayed a host of sharpshooters, whose aim was^un- 'aneiTing-, By the first streak of dawn we learned thatr and we soon began 4n?using ourselves by elevating our caps upon our ramrods so as to expose them above the embankment, Then "sip, zip, zip" would come the bullets, By and by it began to grpw hot. i'hen it grew hotter, Finally it be» came almost unbearable,. .Canteen after canteen was emptied and the boys began to suffer fvonj thirst, But Jt was, worth a man's life to shpw his head above the earthworks, so we were compelled to endure the tprment «s we lay there unprpteptetl e n that July day• t'Bpys," finally remarked Adjutant Purhaw, who had entered the war as a 15-yeav-Pld bpy, a»4 whP had by his bravery bepome adjutant pf the -yogi* ment, *'4p ypu remember--tha.t> cp,oj spring dpww .there in toe ravine?"'
