now Modi Pork per Bushel Corn I
I see an article in your paper under
this caption, whirh looks as though it
might mislead the casual readtr. It is
an old maxim that "figures wont lie."
Without wishing to throw any doubt on
Mr. Buckingham's statement.-, let us ex
amine his figures from anoiher Mat:d
point. He made 10.740 pounds of pork
from 40 acres of mm, estimated ai 40
hush Is to the acr . Let us see: 40 acres
at 40 busdVls 1600 bushels ot cum.
Now. if 1600 lnshtls of corn made 10.1
740 pounds of pork, one bushel will make
6 3-4 pounds, nearly. What he gave for
his hogs or what he sold ihem lor does
not concern us. How many pounds of
pork did that lup)iil of corn make Mr.
13. wry clearly informs us. 6 3-4 pounds.
He further ay. he made 81-4 pounds of
pork to the bu.-h 1 of corn where he fed
in the pen. This certainly will pay for
the labor of hauling com to the boga, in
preference .to letting ilie.hogs do their
tiwn harvesting. This very nearly coin
cides with the experiment of Hon. Sam
uel Clay, of Kentucky, published in this
paper, which I cannot now iay my hand
upon. From my best recollection, I be
lieve he made 53 4 pounds of pork to
buhlof dry corn. From my figures,
simatinr pork as Mr. Buckingham does,
at 4c per pound gross, corn is vrih 27c
iu the fi-ld, and 33 tent when fed in
pens. As to his era in of 22 pounds from
a hushtlof corn, ground and cooked, I
have only to say that it is the largest re-!
turn I have seen on rtcorJ, ami much
more than feeders can reasonably expect.
Samuel Clay made from 14 to 18 pounds,
and in one instance, 10 pounds; and the
Hon. Henry L. Ellsworth (Patent Office
Report. 149, aie 535.) made about the
same number of pounds to the bushel of
corn ground and cooked.
Another consideration is to be taken
into account. These experiments with
cooked fo d have all been made in warm
weather, by a very few feeders, and that
on a limited scale, wilh ho?s of their
on selection. I am as ready as any one
to grant the difference between raw and
cooked food for hogs, but before adpt
injr the latter method, must be well con
Vinced that it will pay.
From the best infotmation I possess, I
do not believe that a huhel of corn makes
more than 6 pounds of pork, as corn i
usually fed to hogs i'J the Great West.

Land that is very wet, not susceptible
of drainage, 1 think cannot be turned to
I etter ndtAutage than to be planted with
osier willow. They grow extraordinarily
faat, and with every year the yild in
creases as the stools expaud; and that
without at y trouble or expanse, except
the annual cutting of the crop.
A few years ago I set out several hun
dred cuttings that 1 obtained from a
neighbor, and the incr asd yield luducetl
me 10 s-t out all my wild land that c uld
not be drained to advantage for grain or
irrass crops, with osier willows, which I
am satisfied pay better than anything
else that can-be produced on such land.
Eisihi or nin: feet inoueyar growth
is n (thing extraordinary, and the num
ber of sprouts fiom on stool in a single
year, is surpris nj. I cut only a few

that several million of dollars worth of

citizens, if they rared a Imle more for

without dirhVulty, forming' permanent
roots the first y ar. and a small crop.-
The second and third year's crop will
quite surprise the new l eirinner.

Time for Planting Corn.
The North American Review has the
following on the genniuaiion of seeds:
No plant can germinate without a
certain degree of heat. Each plaut, how
ever, has'its own peculiar range of tem
perature. Wheat will bet germinate
when the soil is below forty-five degrees
Fahrenheit, or above forty-nine degrees.
Corn requires ten degrees more heat than
wheat. Should it be planted, therefore,
when the soil does not indicate fifty-five
degrees at least, its starchy portions, if
the weather continue wet or cold lor a
week or two, will be decomposed and dif
fused, wholly or in part, through the soil,
so that when the warmtli becomes suffi
cient to quicken the germ into activity,
the plumule, failing to find the proper
nourishment at its root, does not appear
at all. or comes up a puny starveling, and
after living a few weeks 'at a poor, dyin ;
rate,' expires like the wretched cardinal,
and 'makes no sign.' "
"The Review might have added that no
plant is so much benefitted as that of corn
by a quick germination and an early
growth. We have noticed fieldo, parts of
which were plented While the soil was yet
cold, and other parts after it had become
warm. The plants , of both appeared
about the same time. The latter came
more uniformly, giving a better stand ;
grew directly away from the. oiher; ap
peared more healthy and vigorous all
summer, and though maturing a little la
ter, gave much the heaviest yield. In
not only a single instance, tut iu scores
have we made this observation. We con
clude therefore that the exact time for
putting in this seed i? of more importance
than with almost any other, not Oiily be
cause it is the most important crop we
have, but because its success depends more
than with crops generally upon the time
of putting iu the seed.
Some one may ask, are you going thn
to recommend lute plautiug ? We answer,
our readers may not need such advice.
More of them may be inclined to be too
late than too early. . But what we have to
say, is this, and we believe all good farm
ers will approve avoid, patting in the
seed, if you can. without being entirely
behind the times, till you think the soil i
warm enough to effect a speedy germina
tion and a rapid growth, lest you fail of a
gcod stand, and your plants become sick
ly and stinted.
On the other hand, let your arrange
ments be such, if possible) as not to lose a
day after the soil has come into the right
condition. It is no uncommon tiling to
see a field mature its crop of corn in fine
order, if planted as soon as the ground is
sufficiently warm and dry, while you see
another field, equally good, that had to
wait the ttrdy movements of a slow farm
er, ten or fifteen days beyond the proper
planting time, nearly ruined by an early
frost. Indiana Farmer.

It is so hard that it scratches iron. It is
formed of ninety-three parts of well
burned brick, and seven parts of lither
age, made plastic with lim-eed oil. Th
br ck and litherage are pulverzd; ihe
latter must always be rtduct d to a very
fine powder; they are mixtd together,
and enough of linseed oil avldtd. It is
then applied in thj manner of pl.iter,
the body that is to be covered being wet
with a sponge. This precaution is irdis-pen.-nble,
otherwise the oil would titer
through the body, and prevent the t:jas-.
tic from acquiring the desired degree of
hardness. When it is extended over a
large surface, it sometimes happn to
bare flaws in it, which must be tilled up
ivith a fresh quantity of the cement. In
three or four-days it becomes firm. ,t -
