The provision of an adequate supply of proper food is of first importance and calculations should at once be inade as to the amount Required. The home supply of such things as hay, fodder, corn and oats is Usually ample, but other foods" are necessary and by Commencing early to think about such things it will often be possible to save many a dollar, before a rise in price takes place. Every owner of stock can afford to sell off a portion of his ear corn, and with the proceeds purchase bran, shorts, middlings and oil meal, but in many districts where grain is taken to the mill the "grist" is got in trade and usually is a better sample than the commercial stuffs. Oil meal is not yet commonly used on the average farm, but is becoming rapidly and rightly popular, for surely We can better afford to feed it at home than send the bulk of it abroad to be bought greedily at high prices by the men that feed steers against our cheap meat. In this country of the golden grain—maize or Indian corn— along with such ample supplies of prairie hay and corn fodder, there is surely a rich supply of carbonaceous foods, and cur stock needs such supplies for the lonp. fight against cold; but we do not feed a sufficient amount of ^ nitrogenous food to finely finish prime beef, pork or mutton. Our foreign neighbors use our corn in large quantities, but the American food they prize most is the oil cake that comes from the linseed oil and cottonseed oil mills, and they pay prices that are really astonishing. The FAIIMERS' KKVIBW would strongly advise its readers to substitute a oortion of oil meal or ground calce in the usual ration for animals that are being finished for the Christmas markets, and such food need cost no more than the old ration, if the cost of the ration be properly figured, as but one part of the oil meal will be needed to seven parts of carbonaceous food, such as corn. When laying in a supply of such foods it is also well to take precautions against waste of good feeding material due to poor shelter for the stock; for one of the most serious leaks in farm economy is that in the barn that lets in drafts and so causes a waste of heat producing food. It should be understood that good ventilation—plenty of fresh air—never retards fattening when animals are tied up indoors, for such air is needed to supply all the other forces that unite in the assimilation of food and formation of flesh and fat; the hot non- oxygenized atmosphere 'of an overcrowded barn is also detrimental, as it causes animals to sweat, drink large quantities of water, and in other ways fail to thrive. See, then, that the stables are well ventilated, yet free from drafts, and depend upon it that they will be warm enough when full of cattle, and that too much warmth is decidedly detrimental. Another point to remember in preparing for winter is the water supply, which annually is a source of trouble upon thousands of farms. We need give little advice, but merely remind our readers how absurd it is to have to water hundreds of cattle from a common well and hand pump, or have the water pipes exposed so that they are con- btantlv freezing up and bursting.

Two lots of hogs ran with them, to utilise the undigested corn, and their gain was also taken into account. The results were summarized as follows: •tflLI, IT PAY TO SOAK COBS? Whether the answer to this question will be a yes or a ho will depend upon circumstances. The foregoing facts prove that steers get mofe out of soaked eorn than they do of dry corn, and that the reverse is true of the hogs which follow. It will not pay to soak corn whenever it is necessary to take the precaution against freezing that we were obliged to take in this experiment, nor is it likely to pay if it involves mofe extra labor than can be done by the regular force in charge of the cattle, But when a feedef is so situated that the corn can be soaked at slight expense, this experiment Would indicate that it is a profitable practice, at least during mild weather. In conclusion, the facts brought to light by this experiment miy be summarized as follows: 1. Tne five steers fed on soaked shelled corn gained a total of 1,033 pounds in 150 days on 283 bushels of corn, while the five steera fed on dry corn gained a total of only 1,408 pounds on 200 bushels of corn. 2. The steers fed on soaked corn, owing to their better condition, brought a higher price io. ths niarke than the steers fed 011 dry corn. Bal- ancinp both cost of feed and market value of the two lots, there is a'dift'er- ence of 825.50 in favor of the soaking of the corn. 3. The hogs following the steers fed on soaked corn rnado a total gain of 035 pounds, while the 1 o#s following the dry-corn fed steers made a total gain of 747 pounds. This makes a diiference of $5.58 in favor of the hogs following the dry-corn steers. 4. Uased on the foregoing figures, it will pay to soak corn if it can be soaked for 0 cents, or less, a bushel. t&ottS tiffSft» otltttflrtfifif „„ six times the fodder that liaS ftftt ftfgji "' ' fromtneift. *" " " Cultivation of Wild Blackberries. On our farm was a piece of land nearly ten acres in extent, says Farmers' Home. It was light, sandy soil, and the readiness with which briars sprang up all over it indicated favorable conditions for wild blackberries. The land was of little real value, and not needed for regular field crops, as the rest cjf the farm took about all our time to cultivate it. Besides,we are getting more and more to believe in intensive farming, and instead of increasing the acreage under cultivation we are decreasing it. Our location is near large markets, but there is little sale for the land. The question what to do with these ten acres of sandy land, overrun with blackberry vines, puzzled us for many years, but finally we decided to turn it to some profitable use. The blackberry vines were the largest wi'd sorts, very early and sweet, i and we began to cultivate them as much as possible; that is, we thinned them out in places, and transplanted roots to other parts of the field. The vines that failed to produce any berries in placsa were rooted up and others put there. In this way the whole ten acres were eoon one mass of blackberry vines. The result of this venture has been that tons of blackberries have been picked from the field every summer. The .vines are loaded down with large, luscious berries that find a ready sale in the market, especially as a great deal of the fruit ripens earlier than the large cultivated varieties. We never heard of raising wild blackberries for market, but as the boys in the neighborhood always made money in picking them wherever they could find them, we concluded that there must be some money in them. We have not regretted our experiment. The returns from the field every season are large, more than paying 10 per cent interest on the cost of the land, and our wages daily during the picking season. As the laud is almost worthless for general farming, we see no better use to which we can put it. Sending Fruit Long Distances. Ventilation of packages in which fruit is packed for shipping serves no pur* pose except to allow the escape of surplus moisture. Otherwise the contact with fresh air every moment hastens its decay all the more. The important point in packing fruit 5s to see that it is as dry on the outside as it can be made. Then wrap each specimen in a little cotton, which will serve both to exclude air and to absorb any moisture that the fruit will naturally exhale. This was the way that straw* berries were successfully shipped to the World's Fair at Chicago last eum* met, says an exchange- When taken out of the cotton each specimen was as fre§h as when put up and would keep six to eight days. With large fruit a piece of lime put in the package proves an excellent absorber pf moist' mre, which is what is most' likely to canse decay.

Etu* manity can not be encompassed with grander teachers, No wonder that the farm has produced the grandest men the world has ever known, The farm children must be educated to feel that there is a grandeur aijd ftn honor in farm life found nowhere else, Dnr ridge soil with porous subsoil is most favorable for cherry growing, says Prof. -J. L. Budd. On such soil the trees should be set four to six inches deeper than they stood in the nursery. By deep setting, roots will be thrown out from the scion or from a point above the bud, in two or three years. Indeed, the Russian and north German varieties often emit roots from the first year after setting the root-grafts in nursery. Another benefit resulting from deep setting is protection of the tender roots we are obliged to use in propagation. ITLAT'S Fontssxs.—Italy at about the beginning of the Christian era, for commercial purposes and to give employment to her numerous slaves, felled her native forests to the sources of her streams and the summits of her mountain bulwarka Soon, only too soon, unused, unproductive lands drove countless thousands to Rome for bread. The ethereal mildness - of her climate became a scorching siroco When by the failure of national power Rome gave way, her territory was occupied by peoples who allowed the forests to recover the denuded hill and mountain sides. The return toward natural conditions gave back some of her climatic conditions. Under tbe plow, ia place gf the baU Q MIXED FOREST GBOWTH.—Mixed far- est growth is the rule in the world; in the natural forest, there are usually several species occupying the ground together. It requires a higher degree of knowledge and judgment on the part of the owner to properly foster the growth of the desirable kinds. An intimate knowledge of varieties, their growth, value and influence upon others is necessary to attain" the best results. However, it must be'as apparent to the farmer that it is best to keep his wood lot in fair reproducing condition as it will be to keep his cows producing calves instead of remaining barren. A FARMER'S home, with house plants in the window, flowers on the lawn, and a succession of small fruits from a garden planned, planted, pruned and protected with aid of wife and children, giving each child control of a particular plant, bush or row, will do more to make children love the old homestead and keep the boys on the farm than all the precepts ever taight them. BLOOD FOB PLANTS.—A lady whoso plants are the wonder of passers-by found a patent poultry food whose basis was dried blood, and says the rich growth and blossoming is because she works a spoonful of fyiS' once in a while into the earth, abrut them. Before she found out about this she bought blood from the Hebrew butchers for plant food. , A -HUMANE writer says: Keep the flies out of the stables. Close up the cracks and tack mosquito bar over tlsa windows. This may cost you a little money and trouble, but it will savo you many dollars' worth of horse flesh.' The horses will pay for it by doing lots more bar work without fatigue. ONE who has been successful in raising hogs thinks that a thoroughbred boar at 20 cents a pound is cheaper than a scrub at 5 cents. In fact he says that you can hardly pay too much for a first-class boar if you have much use for him. Hoimoui/ruBE is an important de« partment of agriculture, and its study and practice will certainly stimulate the farmer to better tillage, larger crops, finer stock and greater Bueee,s9 in every way, O FOB the soil to remain bare either summer or winter causes a loss of fertility.

Oct.- 21.— Rev. Jjf. Tal- taage, who has left India and is now on his homeward journey, has selected afe the subject for his , sermon to-day through the press, "October Thoughts," his text bfting Jeremiah 8:vii. When God Would set fast a beautiful thought, lie plants it in a tree. When he Would put it afloat he f ashiotts it into a fish. When he would have it glide the air, he moulds it into a bird* My text speaks of four birds of beauti* fill instinct— the stork, of such strong affection that it is allowed familiarly to cottie in Holland and Germany) and build its nest over the doorway! the sWeet-dispositkmed turtle dove, ming* ling in color white and black, and brown, and ashen, attd chestnut; the crane; with voice like the clang of a trumpet; the swallows, swift as a dart phot out of the bow of heaven, falling, tuouritittgj skimming, sailing — four birds started by the prophet twenty- five centuries ago, yet flying'on through the ages, with rousing truth tinder glossy wing and in the clutch of stout claw. I suppose it may have been this very season of the year — autumn — and the prophet out-of-doors, thinking of the impenitence of the people of his clay, hears a great cry overhead. Now, you know it is no easy thing tpr one with ordinary delicacy of eye- gight to look into the deep blue of noonday heaven; but the prophet looks up, and there are flocks of storks, and turtle doves, and cranes, and swallows drawn out in long lines for flight southward. As is their habit, the cranes had arranged themselves in two lines making an angle, a wedge splitting the air with wild velocity, the old crane, with commanding call bidding them onward; while the towns, and the cities, and the continents slid tinder them. The prophet, almost blinded from looking into the dazzling heavens, stoops down and begins to think how much supeiaor the birds are in sagacity about their safety than men about theirs; and he puts his hand upon the pen, and begins to write: "The stork in the heaven knowoth her appointed times; and the turtle and the crane and the swallow observe the time of their coining; but my people know not the judgment of the Lord. " If you were in the field to-day, in the clump of- trees at the corner of the field, you would see a convention of birds, noisy as the American congress the last night before adjournment, or as the English parliament when some unfortunate member proposes niore iconoiny in the queen's household — a tonvention of birds all talking at once, moving and passing resolutions on tho subject of migration; some proposing ;o go to-morrow, some moving that ihey go to-day, but all unanimous in ;he fact that they must go soon, for liey have marching orders from the Lord written on the first white sheet of frost, and in the pictorial of the changing leaves. There is not a belted kingfisher, a chaffinch, or a fire crested wren, oa- a plover, or a red legged partridge but expects to spend the winter at ihe south, for the apartments lave already been ordered for them in South America or in Africa; and after .housancls of miles of flight, they will stop in the very tree where they spent ast January. Farewell, bright plumage! Until spring weather, away! Fly on, great band of heavenly musicians! Strew the continents with music, and whether from Ceylon isle, or Carolinian wamps, or Brazilian groves men see your wings or hear your voice, may ihey yet bethink themselves of the solemn words' of the text; . "The stork n the heaven knoweth her appointed ;im«s; and the turtle and the crane and the swallow observe the time of ilieh* coming; but my people know not ;he judgment of the Lord, " I propose so far as God may help me, n this sermon, currying out the idea of the text, to show that the birds of ;he air have more sagacity than men, And I begin by ' particularizing and sajang that they mingle music with their work. The most serious under- -aking of a bird's life is .this annual flight southward. Naturalists tell us ihat they arrive thin and weary, and ilumage ruffled, and yet they go sing- '.ng all the way; 4 the ground, the lower .ine of the music, the sky, the upper ine of the music, themselves the notes scattered up and down between, I suppose their song' gives elasticity to heir wing and helps on with the journey! dwindling a thousand miles into 'pur hundred. Would God that we we're as wise ,as they in mingling Chris- ,ian song with our every day work! I jelieve there is such a thing as taking he pitch of Christian devotion in the rooming and keeping it all the day, I think we might take some of the dull* est, heaviest, most disagreeable work of pur life, and set it to the tune of Antioch" or "Mount Pj§gaji,» It is a good sign when you hear a work' man wWstie, It is ft better sign, when you hear him hum R roundelay, Jt js better sign when yoa heap him sing the words o| Js^ao Watts ov Charles Wesley, spmething- » thing »s #ttw»e4 hy &iy we , Was. t -wMfi 1 a&fc bf §dd m$ wm is Mi of joy that lh-e feotes lekp mS. c'e f rotn itty fflSfi.

Go 1 ing through the wilderness of this World let us remember that we are on the way to the summery clime of heaven, and from the migratory populations flying through this autumnal air learn always to keep singing. Children of the heavenly King, As ye journey, sweetly sing, Sing your Savior's tvorthy pf ai Glorious in his Works and te are traveling home to God, Ifl tne way yotir fathers trod j They si-e happy now, and we Soon thai? happiness shall see. The church of God never will be a triumphant church until it becomes a singing church, I go further, and remark that the birds of the air are wiser than we, in the fact that in their migration they ny Very high, touring the summer, when they are in 'the fieldsj they often coine within reach of the gun, but when they start for their annual flight southward, they take their places mid* heaven and go straight as a mark. The longest rifle that was ever brought to shoulder can not reach them. Would to God that we were as wise as the stork and crane in our flight heavenward. We fly so low that we are within easy range of the world, the flesh and the devil. We are brought dowxi by temptations that ought not to come within a nn'le of reaching us. Oh, for some of the faith . of George Miller of England, and Elfrcd Cookman once of the church militant, now of the church triumphant! So poor is the type of piety in the church of God now, that men actually caricature the idea that there is any such thing as a higher life. Moles never did believe in eagles. But, my brethren, because we have not .reached these heights ourselves, shall we deride the fact that there are any such heights? A man was once talking to Brunei, the famous engineer, about the length of the railroad from London to Bristol, The engineer said, "It is not very great. We shall have, after a while, a steamer running from England to New York." They laughed him to scorn; but we have gone so far now that we have ceased to laugh at anything as impossible for the Lord? I do not believe that God exhausted all his grace in Paul, and Latimer and Edward Payson, I believe there are higher points of Christian attainment to be reached in the future ages of tho Christian world. You tell me that Paul went up to the tiptop of the Alps of Christian attainment. Then I tell you that the stork and crane have found above the Alps plenty of room for free flying. We go out and we conquer our temptations by the grace of God, aad lie down. On the morrow, those temptations rally themselves and attack us, and by the grace of God we defeat them again, but, saying all the time in the old encampment, we have the same old battles to fight over. Why not whip . out our temptations, and then forward march, making one raid through the enemy's country, [topping not until we break ranks after the last victory. Do, my brethren, let us have some novelty of combat, at any rate, by changing 1 , by going on, by making advancement, trading offi our stale • prayers about sins we ought to have quit long ago, going on toward a higher state of Uiristian character, and routing out sins that we have never thought of yet, The fact is, if the church of God — if we as individuals, made rapid advancement in the Christian life, these stereotyped prayers we have been making for ten or fifteen years would be as inappropriate to us as the shoes, and the liats, and the coats we wore ten or fifteen years ago, Oh for a higher flight in the Christian life, the stork and the crane in their migration teaching us the lesson! ; . ' Dear Lord, and shall we ever live, At this poor dying rate— •Our love so faint, so cold to thoo, And thine to us so great? Again, I remark that the birds of the air are wiser than we, because they know when to start. If you should go out now and shout, "Stop, storks and cranes, don't be in a hurry!" they would say, "No, we can not stop; last night we heard the roaring in the woods bidding us away, and the shrill flute of the north wind has sounded the ro- treat, We must 'go. Wo must go," So they gather themselves into companies, and turning not aside for. storm or mountain top, or shook of pusketvy, over land and sea, straight as' an arrow to the mark they go. And if you come out this morning with a sack of corn and throw it in the fields and try tQ get them to stop, they are now so far up they would hardly see it. They are. on their way south- You couH not stop them. Oh, that we were as wise about the best time to start fqr 'God heaven! We say, "Wait wtii it is a little later in the season of mercy, Wait until some of these green leaves of hope are aU £rie<J wp and have been/ scattered.

Thomas fiailey Atdrich has beett writing poetry since 1 ' 1850, When hd produced & small volume of ballads. He was th«n a clerk in a New York merchant's countittg-'room. Se is now at fifty-eight a better poet than he was even in his prime, and in addition he is one of the most smartly dressed men in Boston. Lord Rosebery says that as soon aa the story of his sleeplessness got into tho newspapers, after he entered Gladstone's cabinet, he Was deluged with cures. One of the first, and' what seemed to him tho easiest, was to sip before going to bed a tumbler of hot water. He tried it, and since has had no further trouble of the kind. Hjalmar Hjorth Boyesen, the novelist, was a friend of the late Victor Hugo and visited the latter in the Isle of Guernsey before he returned to Paris. Professor Boyesen, though opposed to Hugo's theories of art, speaks enthusiastically of the great romancer's fasclnatinar personality, and says that he was one of the most youthful old men who ever lived. Shor.tly before his death General Banks visited the adjutant-general's office in Boston to find out what his rank was. He said ho-remembered he was in the: war; ho felt quite certain of it. He was unable to remember with any distinctness how ho was ranked, and he had come to the ad- jutant-poneral to- find out. He was dignified and courteous, as usual, but for sometime previous his mind had become a wreck. They Ought to Have.
