I ed, cften resulting in the loss of one or
more quarters. We have practiced dai
ly milking for a few days previous to
calvinj in such cases, with good results.
The effect upon the calf cf the pro
tracted milking of the cow kept cn no
more than good ordinary food, is well
known. A slender weakling, he is said
to be '"knocked in the head with the milk
pail." Under ordinary circumstances,
the cow should go dry at least 3 mocths
if we desire a wall developed, perfect
calf. This is one reason why so many
of the n:r breerte cf cat. 1 3 do not com
pare in holding out their milk, with some
of very inferior pretentions. In the for

quantity cf milk, in the latter, all other

How Lous a Cow must go Dry.
It is the custom of dairymen who make
butter and cheese, and keep their cows
on grass and hay alone, to stop milking
twice a day about Thanksgiving, and a
month later to dry off the entire herd.
These cows come in again in March and
April, so that they go dry two or three
months. With this system of feeding
and this period cf calving, this is proba
bly the best course. Two or three months
upon hay alone will only serve to place
the cow in that good heart necessary to
carry her safely through the period of
calving, and subsequent milking, till the
substantial grasses of summer and au
tumn can supply the demand upon the
system. Cows differ very much in their
disposition of holding out their milk.
Some being "dried off" with difficulty,
and others manifesting a decided de
crease as soon, as they are again' with
calf. The former are very desirable if
milk for the family is needed, or the milk
is to be sold, as extra feed may compen
sate for the extra supply ; but dairymen
are satisfied with a good flow of milk
from April to November. As far as the
milk is concerned, we would milk just as
long as the food we proposed to employ
would keep the cow in good order. A
reasonable respite will secure greater
health and vigor in the cow. If the pe
riod is too long the bag becomes fleshy,
and the milk-producing tendency is di
minished. Cows dried in November, if
they do not calve till July, are very apt
to et too fat, the bog is hard and lnilam-
For tbe Xebraka Farmer.

In the July number of the Farmer the
question heading the above article is ask
ed. Wre presume all farmers, mechan
ics and producers have a chance at an
swering. I claim that Tobacco can be
raised, cured, and made ready for mar
ket cheaper than any other product for
which so high a figure has ever been
paid by consumers. This is decidedly
a Tobacco country ; for, sound Oronoco
Tobacco seed which I raised in Minneso
ta sent me while there, from Virginia
sown ia bed in open ground fifteenth
of May; the plants now are full grown,
and will do to cut down in two weeks.
The said stalks, of which I am saving a
large number, are now almost ripe.
The plants on a half acre I am raising,
will average three feet high the leaves
four feet long, and tapering to the point.
This variety of Tobacco, grown in the
Valley the Oronoco in Va.; and from
which our best chewing tobacco is made,
will mature here in twenty days less time
than in its native State. To insure this,
however, the seed should be put in bed

out, thus curing itself.
But in other case3 the worm will crawl'
down upon the lungs cf the chick, and
there suck blood from the air cells of the"
lungs. The way to remove it is to take"
a horsehair eighteen inches long, twist it
and double it, leaving a curve or circle
on one end of the doubled hatr. This'
curve should be a quarter of an Inch in
diameter. Insert ,v? curvei er- lcf tho"

twist it around a few times, and then',
draw it out carefully. You will, in al
probability draw out the worm the fir?t

be one or more worms left.

Gaps ia Chickens.
This destructive ailment among young
chickens has been a mystery to old wo
men for ages. It is one which assafeti
da, opium, and catnip tea has always fail
ed to cure. It requires more of a surgi
cal operotion than the administration of
Chickens are more subject to the gaps
in some localities than others. It depends
upon the noxious plants which grow round
the house, commonly called weeds. The
small low ones are the most productive
of the mischief, such as persley, cactus,
&c. The chickens subsist upon bugs,
worms, and other insects, which they
find among the weeds ; on the persley,
and other low weeds, they find a little
red worm, and about one and a-half inch
es long, and the thickness cf a horsehair,
They gather this worm into their little
crops, unconscious of the result, and soon
find it difficult to keep it there. Thi3
wcrm is lubricated, and always crawling.
It begins to crawl up the Osephagu3 (or
swallow) of the chicken and continues
until the muscles of the throat are ex
hausted. Then the wcrm crawls up the
throat and down the Trachea (or wind
pipe,) thus producing exciting pain, and
if any old lady can get that worm out of
there with o pill of assafetida, she can do
more than I ever could.
The structure of the Trachea and the
lungs are such that they will bear the
presence of air without detriment, but
pot the presence of ether substances, and
the admission of a worm on the hings cf
the chicken throws it into repeated con
vulsions, called the "Gaps." When the
chicken is large and vigorous anl heal

Grafting the Grape.
In the month of April I grafted twenty-four
Delaware scions into root3 of th
common wild Fox grape of Nebraska.
I used pioces cf roots about eight inches
long, and the scion with two buds only.
These I set in the ground close up to the'
top bud on the scion, and packed the dirt
down closely about them. Of these 21
have made a growth cf over two feet. I
used np wax, clay or tieing, leaving the
junction entirely open to the contact cf the'
The same day, I gave twelve Dianas
the same stocks and treatmentwhile
but seven crew out of the dozen. Twelve'
Rebecca's treated precisely the same way
and growing in same ground, are all alive
and growing finely.
The next day I grafted four dozen: '
twelve Ccnccrd, twelve Delaware, twelve
Diana and ttvelve Anna on roots of the .
Clinton Grape. But four arc growing of
the Concord; nine of the Delaware; two'-
of Diana; and'four cf Anna.
Waiting until the buds of the wild Fo.t
were fairly started, I grafted four dozenr
twelve Louisa; twelve Herbarhont; twelve
Hartford Prolific and twelve Union Vil
lage, and every graft is alive and making-"
wood rapidly. These had the same treat
ment as the first and all the rest; the on- .
ly difference being in time of grafting.
I am satisfied that the Fox will make ai
very good stock for the native varieties,
but the blue frost grape is much better,
and throws up a larger growth cf wood.
I have but a half dozen, on this stock and
they are now six feet high. Another
season they will fiber freely.
The past spring I set out in rows in'
open ground two thousand cuttings of the'
Catawba, Clinton and Isabella. Nine
tenths of the whole lot are now growing."

one half of these are growing. The

How to Hold a Hard-headed Horse-'
I wish, through the medium ol your
common-sense paper, to describe a simple
method of holJing a fiery, hard bitted, or
run-away horse. Put the buckle or snap
of the rein through the bit ring, and '
fasten it to some part of the bridle be
tween the ears and mouth of the horse.
The advantage of this easily and quickly
made arrangement is two-fold; 1st, it
draws the bit directly into the corners of,
the mouth, whatever be the position of
the horse's head; 2nd, the force exerted
on the bit in this manner by the same
power at the end of the rein, though not,
nuite doubled, is very much greater than
when the rein is attached simply to the.
bit. By this means, I have seen the most
fretful and ungovernable animal immedi
ately converted into a serviceable plow
horse, while my eased limbs and shoul
ders gave direct testimony in favor of the "
diminished labor of managing the term.
The arrangement is also convenient in
driving an ill-matched team, one horH
being a fast, and the ether a moderate
travelar. Arrange tbr reins as directed;
for the fast horse, leaving the others in
the com way. N. P. Blakislie.
