For the Nebraafca Farmer.
A Hint to Farmers on tlie niga
We, who are living on the high prai
ries, Missouri, Kansas and Nebraska,
will, no doubt, be always liable to ex
tremes in weather, and sudden changes
of temperature. This naturally results
from our position. We must expect
sometimes too much rain, and sometimes
too little; sometimes too much hof, dry
weather, and sometities too strong r.orth-
as is impatient of late frosts or hard
winters, that they may be as hardy and
stocky as possible. I do not wender at a
&orry pioneer's disposition to urge en his
trees by all possible means, and get fruit
at the earliest mcment, and yet I do not
commend the course for those who wish
hardy and productive trees. Neither
would I advise them to neglect their
trees to promote hardiness; but rather
that they should be planted on exposed
situations, and without stimulant if the

in April or May, blasting the projects
for fruit that year at least.v We suppose
that many, like the writer, were not
brought up to this; and yet, if we act the
part of intelligent men, we must prepare
for these extremes. An eril fairly looked
at, is half orercorae.
The drouth of '60 taught many a les
son. Some who came here in '56 and
'57, and paid $1 to $1,50 per bushel for
corn, and in '59 just beginning to harvest
corn of their own, must take 15 cts. per
bushel or nothing, left their corn in the
field to be devoured by their cattle at
leisure. And who wonders ? And yet
these same helped to swell the great
exodus Eastward in the summer of '60,
or else remained to become the recipi
ents of Eastern charity, and eat of im
ported corn! Some of us gathered our
corn, and finding so little offered for it,
let it lay, as scarcely worth marketing
When the winter of '60 came, we knew
what tee had been saving our corn for I
We are of the opinion that if we do
have a drouth now and then, our country
will average as well as others, and better
than many, if not most. Let the years of
plenty see the store-houses filled, that
the years of scarcity may be provided for.
We do not expect another drduth like
that in many years, at least ; but let us
be prepared. "The wise man foreseeth
the 'evil, and hideth himself; but the
sirnpla pass on and are punished." -
We believe that by suitably guarding
agabst ttzs-2. extremes of- ilnuue, and
conducting our operations in; view of
them, we can raise almost any thing we
please. On the other hand, if we labor
without the contingency in view, we may
sometimes lose our whole season's labor,
and seed. Admitting this to be only an
occasional contingency, it is worth guard
against. But the extremes do come In
greater or less proportions every year.
They are inherent to this locality ; and
the land seems to be fitted to endure
them. We have seen in the Eastern
States trees die out, root and branch,
during the drouth of a few weeks, which
here will not even ruin the corn crop.
And, besides, we believe an All Wise
Providence has not made so beautiful a
country as this, with such an evil inher
ent, without also giving his intelligent
creatures judgment by which they can
sufficiently guard against it. .The case
of corn has been cited as admitting of
relief by "keeping over,' if necessary.
The same is equally true of all the cere
als, and of well cured grapes. But of
potatoes and fruit, this is not true. But
fruit may be profitably dried, and should
be when so plenty as to be unsaleable.
It may then be kept if necessary. And
how about potatoes? I have observed
this of Kansas: that the heat of midsum
mer is frequently prejudicial to their
growth. A late planted crop, from June
to July, or very early March, has with
me been more successful than one planted
i -i tf list r.f A nril nr first n? .fsv
Uvea i" 'GO, I iiised seme grcd potatoes j
cf t;i3 earliest and latest planted, while
the intermediate planting failed entirely.
We hav$ no fears (judging from, five
years experienced here,) that we can
not raise our own potatoes every year.'
The above is not written to induce farm
ers to retain their crops a year before dis
posing of them, but only to discourage
them from "selling themselves short,"
before they have a seasonable probability
of another plentiful crop.
All of us have noticed the scanty im
mature vegetation in shallow soils, with
hardpan or rock underneath, where the
roots were denied the chance of striking
downward for aliment. The observance
of this fact should teach us especially the
necessity of "plowing deep, while others
sleep, if we would have corn to cell or
keep." Plowing deep is the best safe
guard alike against extremes of flood or
We have aho noticed that the fastest
growers are neither the hardiest nor the
most productive tree ; and 'this should
admonish us so to train our ffruit trees, in
ihi3 fickle climate, especially such fruit
stand two years before the ground was
again stirred. This seemed like pretty
slim treatment, and yet those trees made
a moderate healthy growth, and bore
sooner than those which were planted
under more favorable circumstances.
They have borne more heavily, and have
made a better start in the spring, than
others which were encouraged to grow
faster. Shortening in, that is, cutting off
the ends of the long shoots in the fall, is
a partial preventive to winter killing.
But we, will close, for fear of weary
ing your patience, as we may sometime
wish to be heard again.

For the Nebraska Farmer.
Farming is. OlherProfcssIons.
Friend Furnas: If I understand the
objects of the Farmer they are to elevate
and improve the farming interests of our
country, and to make them in the public
mind what they are in fact, the most im
portant, and the most honorable, and the
most useful of all the callings of life,
while at the same time they are, or at
least should be, as lucrative as other cal
lings. Placing this to the credit of the
Farmer we welcome its visits as a true
friend, and peruse it3 page3 with a deep
and heartfelt interest, and always feel a
desire to aid, if possible, its worthy ob
jects. Will yoa allow ne to make a few
remarks ar.i sug2et'c-3 cn subject
we have placed at th? heal cf ;L.j mi- j
cle. . i
I do not wish to underrate the "Icrn-
ed professions," so called, nor depreci
ate any honorable calling. They are all
important in their places and help to
make up the sum total of a nation's pros
perity ; nor -would I array them against
each other. The true philosophy we
should study end practice, to assign to
each its appropriate sphere of action, and
protect each from the aggressions sought
to be made upon it by others.
It must be manifest on the slightest
observation, that there is' a striking
disproportion between the prices of the
labors and products of the farmer and
those of other men, and that if this dis
proportion continues long it must great
ly cripple if not entirely ruin the farm
ing interests of our country. If the far
mer calls on the lawyer for counsel the
latter magnifies himself into undue pro
portions, and demands at least S25 to at
tend to his case. But if the lawyer re
ceive the same amount of service iom
the farmer he would not be willing to
pay him more than 25 cents. Two months
of hard labor would be required to pay
If a doctor is called to visit a patient
he must have 50 cents a mile for his ride,
81,00 a visit, and high prices for his
medicines and prescription besides. If
the farmer performs the .same amount
of labor for the physician, he could not
et 10 per cent on the doctor's charges.
If the farmer calls on the mechanic fcr
repairs on hi? wp.Cl cn plow, h2 is met
with a similar disproportion ia prices.
It will take days cf hard labor tD foct
the mechanic's bill, made perhaps in a
single hour. And so great i3 the dis
proportion between the prices of the pro
duce of the farm and the articles of mer
chandise he is obliged to purchase, that
a hundred bushels of com will scarcely
pay for a pair of boot3.
Under this state it things it would
seem impossible that our farming inter
ests should prosper. The farmer cannot
ever raise to independence with this state
of things. He must tax his energies to
the utmost for a bare subsistence, and,
sooner or later, break up in despair.
The privations and sacrifices cf settling

Osier Willow Hedges.
D. L. HoLsrr, of victory, N. Y., has
paid more attention to cultivating Osier
Willow Hedges, than almost any ether
man, perhaps, writes as follows to tho
Country Gentleman ;
First set in earl spring a singla
row of good fresh and large cuttings

have the hedge straight. Keep down
all weeds and gras3. The willow, if
set early on good soil, will cake a
growth of four feet the first summer.
Cut off close to the ground the tec
ond spring. Hoe once if iredi ap
pear, and you will have a growth, densa
and pretty, eight feet high the second
fall. Form into a hedge. by driving. -aline
through tho centre three cr four'
feet high ; cut off the rod3 that touch
the line evenly on top by the-- line;
these form living stakes or standards,
and should be about threo or four in
ches apart, through which the uncut
willow i3 interlaced according to fancy,
finishing up with a sort of rope-jiko
binding on top.
The hedge is now complete, with'tho
exception of covering it with thorn?.
This i3 done by cutting off. the 0-iier3 .
slanting, r.ith a pruning knife. ' Each
stub left thu3 cut make3 a good sharp
My first twenty rods of hedga aa
cut at three feet from the surface.
Wishing to increase it3 height, I pro
ceeded as follows cut the Osiers at
two inches above the original top bifwl
ing,leaving one standing at every threg
inches in a straight line, the hola
length of the hedge ; then commence
with the first Osier, passing it bck
around the cedar stake at the endof
the hedge, bringing it forward and
passing it on the right of thV fir3t
standing Osier, and to the leftof tho

each Osier hcld3 the one back of it ia

I like it. Why ? First, because it
bears anv amount of feezing without
injury, and it ia not injured by field
mice or rabbits. It looks very pretty,
cost3 but little. One hedge furnishes
the material ready for the next. It
makes a paying fence. Each rod threo
years old will furnish material sucier. t
for four corn baskets cf two. bushsb
each, without injury to itself, but bo
improved by the additional thorns pro
duced by cutting off the 03iers. There
fore Hike it because its general intro
duction will be of large benefit to thi
country, multiplying heme comfort?
and stopping the importation of for
eign Osiers. I like them becaua T
