Professor Boedeker has analyzed- the
milk of a healthv cow at various times of
the day, with the view of determining the
changes in the relative amount of its -con
stituents. He found the solids of the
evening imilk (13 per cent) exceeding
those of the morning milk (10 per cent),
while the .water contained in the fluid was
diminished from 89 per cent to 36 per
cent, lne fatty matters craduallv in
crease as the 'day .progresses. In the
morning they amount to 2.17 per cent, at
noon 2.63 per cent, and in the evening
o.52 per cent. This fact is important in
a practical point of iew; for while sixteen
ounces of morning's milk will yield nearly
half anounce.of buttr,' about double this
quantity may be obtained from the eve
ning's milk. ; .-The casein is also increased
in the eveninir's milk from 2.24 to 2.70
per cent; but the albumen is diminished
from 0,44 per cent: to 0,31 per cent

We see by the Eastern papers that the
Pastors of) the different denominations in
theEast have" become "so .zealous"' in .the
cause of religion that they not only 'pray
for the cpnver5ion of mankind in general
but are offering ud upnlicaions to Deity
for the conversion of ministers of other
denominations in particular. For instance
the Rev. Mr. Chambers prays thus for
the Rev Xheoore Parker :

question. of discussion, when neighbors

''Don't know," says Jacob, "he's a mighty

on a quarter section of land, and', the

O.yes! there's elements enough in the
soil and out of it, to brinsr the two thou-
sand dollars to the'surface in a palpable
form, provided nature and art succeed in
producing the atomic combinations neces'

he'll make in the tree years, constantly
harrassed by that debt, and more likely
than not, the chinch bugs destroying his

Artichokes A Response.
In No. 14 of your Journal, you have an
article on artichokes and ask for mforma
tion. Now, what knowledge I have of
them, I impart to you with the greatest
good will. In all our (I say our, for
there is more than one who joins in with
me yjnn- what I say of the artichoke)
experience with them, wLich has been
over twenty years, we have found no
good in them.
So then, the good qualities I will leave
for some one else to tell. With us they
have been evil and continually evil. Mr.
Somebody says they yield bountifully; no
doubt so do most bad things. I suppose
the Canada thistle would yield many
bushelsio the acre; but for this reason
shall we raise them ? Of a truth, I had
rather have the Canada thistle sown on
my larra than the artichoke, and l-had

Now to those who think of planting .
them, I would raise a warning voice, and

Why will you make this mistake,
for if you pknt thna, you will find it to '

us how to rid our farms of this plague, we

poison and breeding a deadly worm is

'A Minnesota pioneer" writing to tho
Journal of Agriculture of the importance
of establishing an exchange of experience
among farmers, says : Statistics are what
we want, and if every one, or a part, at
least, would, on the coming spring, begin
a report of his operations on one field or
all, of one kind of his crops or more, and
give a systematic report in full to this or .
some other good agricultural paper, at
the close of , his work, giving the time of
plowing, plantiug or sowing, hoeing and
harvesting, kind of weather and soil, the
cost and the price obtained, or its value,
and if he has a thermometer give its mean
indications, he will give as valuable a re
cord and confer as great an amount of
knowledge as though he wrote a rolume

of acquiring these facts. Let them

In Season and oat of Season. .
I take it for granted thai all farmers '
have their programme for the eominr
season well considered, and will be ready
for action at the earliest practicaale mo
ment. It is a too common failing, with
even very good farmers, indeed, to neg- -
ect this most important part. ith sys
tematic arrangements which anticipate
the needs and wants in proper season, the '
abor of four men upon the farm is equal "
to six without system. We too often com.
mence in the spring with the intention of
making certain improvements if we have
time and nothing happens to prevent, and
when that is the planning, most invariab-
y we are behind tune, and something
does happen to defeat our designs in part.
and that part is often essential to success
as a whole. The prudent and calcuktin?
armer says, such and such thing must be
done, it will pay to do thera, by goo4
managing I have the means, and, "by the
Eternal," they shall be done. Men who
make up their minds in this war. are
generally favored by the Great Eternal,
and their purposes are accomplished, the
old proverb, "God help those who help
themselves," holding good in agricultural
as in other pursuits. L, G. C.
To Care Bots.
We find the following in the N. Y.
Spirit of the Times : "When your horse
has the bots, first give him some sage tea.
Boil the sage in a quart ot milk, and
sweeten with molasses. Half an hour
after drench your horse with two vials of
laudanum; in three-quarters of an hour
after, drench with three-fourths of a
pound of salts, and your horse will be
well in three hours, or as soon as the
salts operate. The tea will make the.
bots let loose, the laudanum will put them
to sleep, and the salts will cause them to
pass from your horse. I warrant the en- '
