In most cases the haVit
is contracted during the
after the cow has had her first calf. If,
aa is often the case with well-fed hei
fers, the udder is a little feverish at
the time, it is often impossihle for the
poor creature to stand still while the
necessary milking is being done. Fol
lowing the instinct of nature, she kicks;
and. finding she is thus for the moment
freed from pain, continues to do it till
'ihc anger of ihc milker is aroused, and
then a lad matter is made much worse.
It is better, in the first place, to tie
.the heifer by the head ; then set your
.left shoulder gently but firmly against
her, just back of her right shoulder ;
rasp firmly her right fore-leg, below
the knee, and with a strap or cord
confine it fast in an elevated position.
.While standing on three legs she will
Rnl Jf T;fHri1f in k-JrV Kn na in hurt
you. . Xow take a convenient-sized
cloth .and wet and wash the . udder
thoroughly with tepid or cold water,
after which milk her as carefully and
tenderly as possible, using at the same
time such gentle and soothing lan
guage as is calculated to show her that
3'ou do not wish to hurt her; but, let
her struggles be ever so violent or pro-
vekmg, mind you keep control ot your
own temper. An outbreak on your
. part will as- certainly be productive of
a -bad effect upon the cow, as an echo
will .answer your own voice, or as your
imairc will be reflected in a mirror.'
Kindness combined with the perfect
. control 3'ou have over her in this situa
tion, is much the best way of breaking
her; and after a few days she will hit
her foot as readily to have it tied as a
horse will to be shod. Continue to milk
' her in this way till the soreness is
gone, and she will find it a gratifica
tion to be milked; will often meet you
as" she sees you coming with the pail,
and you will ever after find it easier
to. get along with her should her teats,
by chance; get sore afterward.
FACTS A20TIT 'XDLXX.
Cream can not rise through a great
depth of milk. If, therefore, milk is
desired to retain its cream for a time
it should be put into a deep, narrow
"dish; and if - it be desired to. free it
most completely of cream, it should
be poured into a broad, flat dish, not
much exceeding one inch in depth.
Ihc evolution of cream is facilitated
by a rise, and retarded by a depres
sion of temperature. At the usual
temperature of the dairy fifty deg
rees of Fahrenheit all the cream will,
probably, rise in thirty-six hours; but
in seventy degrees it will rise in half
that time; and when the milk is kept
near the freezing-point, the cream will I
rise very siowiy, because it becomes
solidified. - . . -
' In wet and cold weather the milk
is less rich than in dry and warm, and
on this account less cheese is obtained
in cold than in warm, though not in
thundery weather. The season has
its effects. The milk in spring is sup
posed to be the best for drinking, hence
:a . l.i i. i. c 1
.it uuiu ie me ut'SL iur canes; in sum
mer it is best suited for cheese; and in
autumn the butter keeping is better
than that of summer. The cows less
frequently milked give richer milk,
' and, consequently, more butter. The
morning's milk is richer than the ev
ening's. The last drawn of each milk
ing, at all times and seasons, is richer
than the first drawn, which is the

'homcmade" recipes for the benefit of

Eally Tomatoes. This is one of
the most difficult vegetables to force,
and should be started very early in or

.who havo grecn-housc3 and hot-beds
need no other facilities. But those
who have only a'stand of parlor plants
and keep up a constant fire for them,
can start a few tomatoes with very
little trouble. Take a half-dozen four

Tiie Yeli-ow Locust I will tell
yon how I managed to get a grove of
yellow locust trees. About , twenty
years ago I towed half a pound of lo
cust seed, in beds, the same as I bow
beets or carrots. I prepared my seed
by pouring hot water on it, and letting
it stand a lew hours. Ihe next; spring
I took up my seedling trees, arid set
them out on a piece of ground that
was so poor it would hardly tun over
I plowed some furrows ' twelve or fif
teen feet apart, laid the roots of my
seeding trees into them, about two feet
apart, covered .. them with my hoe,
righted them un with mv hands, and
let them go without further cultivation
. . - -W a . ft
At this time 1 have a beautitul grove
of trees, straight and thrifty, and many
of them long enough for fence-posts.
The effect oi the land is wonderful.'
It produces ten times the feed it;
before the trees were set out. " Tfl
I took possession of my farm, I found
that acre had been skinned till it was
almost worthless. Now it produces
double the feed of any acre of pa sture
I have. I take no little pride m show
ing my tree ?, and the luxuriant growth
of white clover under them.
GOOD AND BAD INVESTMENTS TOE
Some, perhaps wo might say many
farmers, when they find themselves in
possession of a little capital, neglect
to avail themselves of the tafa and
profitable node of investing which is
ready always : on their own premises,
and which is subject entirely to their
own control, and too often seek an in
vestment for their spare funds in the
stock ot some railroad, oantinj: or
other company. This is turning aside
profits from their natural channel, and
the consequences are the loss ot the
profits which judicious improvements
m nelus or implements, or swck or
buildings would certainly have yielded
them, and sometimes the loss of prin
cipal as well as interest, by an injudi
cious investment in stocks.
We have upon a late occasion, as
upon many former ones, submitted
to our readers some suggestions in
reference to this subject, intended to
persuade them that their safest and
most profitable mode of investment
lies within the compass of their, own
legitimate pursuits. Our columns, al
so, are at ail times, abundant in hints
as to methods in which capital may at
any time be invested to good' advan
tage, as in draining, manure-saving,
composting, digging and ' drawing
muck, and other modes of increasing
the fertility of the soil; in purchasing
improved and really useful and labor
saving implements; or, to name no
more, . in improving .; the quality of
the stock of all kinds, and enlarging
and making more convenient the build
ings of all kinds upon the farm. In
these and many similar ways may a
farmer at almost any time, make a
better investment at home, and in his
own business than li can do by the
purchase of almost any kind of stocks,
or even ot bonds and mortgages.
To' add confirmation and force to
what we have already said on this, sub-
ect, we give the following remarks
from The Ohio Fanner:
"How many a farmer has lost the
avails of ten years prosperity by buy-
g railroad stocks! Let him do so no
more, lne tanner cannot traae in
stocks with success. This is a species
of venture for which his training dis
qualifies him. Let mm throw no more
hard-earned gold into this greedy vor
tex. He will pronounce our advice
good if he will notice facts." Country
Cabbages for Stock. Every far
mer, and, indeed, every person having
a garden and a hen, a pig, or a cow,
will do well to have gome cabbage
plants with which to fill the ground
when early crops have been TemoYcd
too late for turnips. The cabbage is
a sure grower, and faithful in its mis
sion, whether put out early or late. To
secure good, firm heads for table use,
requires considerable caro in kinds,
times, soil, and culture; but ' to ; secure
a good growth of highly-nutritious
and valuable food for stock, requires
but a small, measure of regard for
either. - ;. -
The cabbage contains a full propor
tion of nitrogen in addition to the oxy
cren. hvdrocren, and carbon, the ele
ments of the great mass of r the veg
etable kingdoms. In this, it ia closely
allied to animal food, and on . this ac
count, as weil a3 on others, it 13 a
valuable addition to the usual food of
animals. We believe the cabbage wor
thy of high estimation as a regular field
crop, not merely lor the pork ana
cabbage trade, but as food for cattle
and hog?, and that it will be extensi
w j . a 1
vely cultivated for that purpose; bu
however thi3 may be, we are confiden
that the cabbage 'affords : the bes

A. the fcQiieen cf tho South." This remarkable
Sail has bee a kept secured to the inventor by caveat
recenilT. however, (June 27th, 185-1.) Letters
Patent for the United States have been granted, se
curinir tho invention for fourteen years. This Mill
has sustained itself wherever it has been brought in
to competition with other Mills. It was run agtdnsi
the other mike of Jlills o our city, at the Ohio State
Fair, in 1SJ 0, when it drew a diploma as the best
Corn Mill, and was awarded a fine silver medal.
Of these Mill3 we manufacture five sizes for corn,
and three e:rpres?ly for grinding wheat flonr.
The peculiar novelty of this Mill is, the under
stone is the runninz stone, in all cases. There is no
limit to the ;5peed, and as speed is everything in grind
icr. it will oat triad err upper rrinder in the world,
Secondly:: By this arnr. -emcnt we are enabled to
get grain into tha iliU wiih a very small eye, conse

Thirdly: Our Mill takes any kind of grain without
choking." We warrant against choking in ary and all
cases. Thi is a rreat vexation causing delay and
trouble Li till Mills where the upper stone ii the run
ner. Of course, we incn smill Mills, whero thi mo
