XoT. 7, 1661.- nlS-6n
Mr. Edistok : An important question
to farmers is, what is the. best mode of
preparing wheat for seed ? and, is there
any sure preventive for smut in wheat ?
inhere are many theories concerning
smut, and some receipts given said to be
in part, or entire preventives.
Some recommend washing seed wheat
in blue vitriol water aad we have reason
to believe since the experiments with vit
rial wash have resulted in a great meas
ure in cleaning; the wheat of smut, that
the vitriol must destroy the vitality of
smut, for although the seed of smut will
not germinate independent of the wheat,
it will grow as a parasite. If so the mi
nute seed must attach itself in some way
to the growing wheat, and the only way
is by the seed passing up in, or through
the sap vessels of the growing wheat
stalk, and as fungus, taking the place of
and destroving the kernels of wheat.
Hence we see the reason why a smut head
so nearly resembles true wheat as toonly
show its deformity at a little distance by
its darker green color, until the wheat is
ready to harvest. It seems that the soft
er the variety of wheat, the more liable
to smut. This being true, may we not
reasonably concluded that the riper the
seed wheat the less likely to smut ; and
the .greener the wheat when cut, the
more sap of course will be in thb stalk
and the more likely to dissolve the smut
into its fine particles during the sweating
in the stack or mow, and make it difficult
if not impossible to destroy the smut by
any wash, without danger of destroys
the germ of the wheat at the same time
It seems to me tnat it tarmers desire
to grow wheat cf soft instead of flinty
surface, they may lessen the smut evil by
allowing the wheat intended for seed to
get fully ripe before harvesting; then
'i ?.fere. sowing wash in strong .brine
so strong as to swim all the smut and
other impurities. There will be no need
of much stirring so as to break or disolve
the smut kernels, the object being to com
pel the smut to swim; skim off all, what
ever rises to the top and swims, then dry
sufficiently to sow, taking care to have
clean sacks for the wheat after washing,
amd the crop therefrom will be almost if
not quite free from smut. I have tried
the foregoing with good success both in
Illinois and Nebraska. J. F. B.
Cass Co., March '62.
For the Nebraska Farmer. .
Abont Osage Orange Fences.
Mr.' Editor: It being an acknowledged
fact that timber, especially for fencing
purposes, is very scarce and not sufficient
to fence our vast and beautiful' prairies
The more thoughtful are turning their at'
tention to this important subject by way
of putting out groves of timber, and
many are using their able pens to try to
impress upon the minds of others the im
portance of engaging, at an early day,
in this, of all other enterprises, perhaps
the most important to Nebraska farmers.
Hence we see in almost every number of
our valuable Farmer one or more arti
cles written on this subject. This is as it
should be, and I am greatly surprised that
farmers generally take so little interest
in a cause of so, great a magnitude to
themselves. . - : n .
There is another, enterprise of scarce
ly less importance than that of raising
timber, that 'appears 'to attract but little
attention 'even from the most enterprise
ing farmers. ; 1 mean live fencing. All
agree that we must, sooner or later, re
sort to some substitute for timbei for
fencing material. Yet, very few are
making any effort to even experiment
with any of the numerous substitutes
recommended by agriculturists. Every
one appears to be waiting for his neigh
bor to go to the trouble and expense of
experimental knowledge, and after some
one has spent years of toil and a large
amount of means In experimenting, and
some one thing has proved a success, they
too will plant and at a comparatively
trifling expense secure a good, substan
tial and durable live fence. Now, Mr.
Editor, this is not the way for Nebraska
armers to realize the great advantage
that would result from an immediate
knowledge of some species of live fence
that will endure successfully our winters
ano other mishaps that the more tender
plants fall an easy victim to.
If farmers generally would spend a
ttle of their leisure time in experiment
ing with something that would probably
make a fence, and communicate through
the columns of the Farmer; we would
thus very soon be in possession of the
much desired information as to the best
material for live fence.
I Lavu been exp-;ria;er.tir. j wku
Osage Orange for the past three yeats,
and am :ully satisfied that with rrcpfr
culture it will succeed well here and will
make not only a good substantial fence
but can be raised cheaper thin jcu can
build a good plank fence.
I do not propose in this article-to give
in detail the proper method of germinat
ing the teed, cultivating the plant, the
hedge after setting, &,c.,but merely give
the result cf ray experience. The
former information will be given freely
at some future time, if it is desired.
I put out eighty reds cf the Osage three
years ago this spring, in single rows, six
inches apart ia the rows, and cultivated
about as corn the first seascn. At one
year old I cut it down within three inches
of the ground, and cultivated the sarr.3 as
the previous season. : Last spring I cut it
down within ten .or twelve inches of the.
ground, and done nothing more with it
last season. Now it is of sufficient
beighth, thickness and strength to turn
any reasonable stock of any kind, except
in a fevvgap3 destroyed the first season by
gophers, which were afterwards reset,
and will soon fill up as tb.3 others.
There is but one -difficulty in growing
a fence of the Maclura or Osage plant,
and that is the gopher; but there i3 no
more trouble to keep them out cf a hedge
th?n out of an orchard, garden, or any
other place he may attact. ,
I have never lest a plant of any age,
from winter killing, dry season, cr any
other cause, except the aforesaid gopher,
and I find it but very little more labor to
cultivate than a row of corn cf the same
length. I have set out other pieces cf the
same hedge since the firs', with similar
I am cf orjinioa:tV.at there are other
shrubs, some of which, grew spont?n?cs
in this country,' that i'li make a good"
live fen: lhe : nJ !r- - plum, with
proper care anc-wdiiurc, .vouia uedoutt
edly make a fence as substantial and du
rable as the Maclura, but perhaps not so
beautiful. It appears to be exempt from
the destructive ravages cf the gopher.

For the Nebraska Farmer.
Farming as a Vocation.
A great deal has been said, especially
during the last few years, in regard to
the exalted and ennobling character of
farming as a vocation. Out of all this
talk a very pretty theory has grown, and
gained much credence and popularity.
It is often said, the owner and tiller of
tue soil is the true aristocrat of the land
He alone of all classes and professions,
owes none of his success in life to the
"tricks of trade," or the favor and pat
ronage of his fellows. The compact is
between him and the bounteous Giver of
good, who promptly. recompenses faithful
industry. - This, then, is the most inde
pendent, the most dignified, as well as the
purest and most natural vocation in which
men may engage. . Such i3 the theory,
and a very fine one it is; too fine, it
should seem, for every-day use, as we are
apt to set it aside from our common cal
culations, and only give it an airing on
state occasion, when we wish to show our
superiority to mere vulgar prejudice.
Ordinarily, when the merits of some particular-individual
are under discussion,
we hear the expression, "oh, he is a com
mon son ot man ; only a farmer !" Now,
as a farmer's daughter and a farmer's
wife, we claim the privilege cf being as
sensitive as we please on this subject, and
of frowning severely upon any offender
who shall drop this unlucky phrase in our
presence. Many persons give utterance
to this sentiment without in the least
suspecting that they are perpetrating an
excellent joke. Perhaps, after . all,, it is
no joke! If so, the truth ought to be
known and recognized at once. We
ought to look the matter squarely in the
ace, for there is enough moral courage
in the world to accept almost any well
demonstrated fact. If there be any
known law, moral or physical, by which
armer is incapatiated for enjoying the
society of men of culture and refinement,
or for being himself a man of culture and
refinement, we have been in the dark too
We copy the following from the Prai.
rie Farmer: .
"Editohs P. F. : I feel it rather a dcty
which I owe to my Western fellow-citizens,
now in time of war and the attend
ant pecuniary embarrassment to more or
less of every family in our much loved,
and once boasted happy Republic, to in'
form, thro' the medium of the Paai&iz
Farmeb, of some of my experience cf.
economy in the household." First, cf ths
delicious pies and sauce we are enjoying "
this winter, from, our wild plum3 put up
last summer in pure spring water. They
need no careful sealing, or anything bat a
safe place from freezing during tho win
ter, so as to have them ready for use.
Gather when fully ripe, put in barrels,
jars, tubs, or anything that will hold wa
ter; cover them after filling up. There
forms a scum on the top which keeps them
from the air and all is right. When
about to make pies, I mash and sweeten
them, putting ia a little of the water ia
which they are preserved, and we have a
choice article. I am told that other fruit,
such as cherries, grapes, Sec, will kee

This sounds very reasonable, ar
should think tomatoes could be preser
in that manner, if any fruit could. I
some our lady readers will all try the t
periment; but I would suggest lhat
cover be lightly pressed down cn t
fruit, and then not disturbed until a
weather secures them for the rest of tl.
But no such law exists! The highest
ideal which has been cherished of the
dignity of the husbandman's vocation, is
the truest. The theory is right; it is
only one practice that lags shamefully in
the rear ! Some will say, "after all, this
is a trivial subject with which to occupy
the columns of a valuable journal, devo
ted to objects of practical utility." But
this is not a matter of little consequence.
Through this very mistaken notion of
How to Make a Set of Tery Trc;
Collars and CuZs,
Procure a piece of muslin,- cambric c
fine, linen ; cut out your-collars and cuff.,
from any pattern you have by you. Hav
ing done this, procure a piece of colored i
jaconet or muslin. Choose one with some
pretty small flower in peach, blue or rink.
or even green. We have seen both prints
and muslin' with flowers-sprinkled over 1
the 'pattern. Choose these, and cut put j
the flowers and tack them in a row round' j
your' collar and cuffs; get some white ;
braid, and then stitch the braid.roand the
flowers with ingrain cotton (of the color
your flowers may chance to be.) The
style is new, pretty and useful. Tha
colored flowers can be introduced ia em
broidery pitterns, and look well. Care
should be taken that the flowers of print
muslin will wear washing.
Another way to put flowers cn the col
lars and cuffs, is to tackoa your flower
and button-hole, stitch it round with whito
cr colored cotton, and then cut away tho
muslin or linen from underneath the
flowers. If ladies are not able to p recurs
good ingrain cotton, they may use fir.o
colored worsted.. Y.' Tinas.
