'"VTriUenfuv the Xebraka Farmeri : -:-
V . . Hungarian" Grass.
Mr. Editor t The' regular visits of the
Farmer are enough to rernind cne of. his
obligations to mankind , in" general, and
your excellent paper in particular. . ; ,-r r
The almost universal . condemnatioa of
Hungarian Grass prompts me :( to" offer a
few thoughts in relation to; it. 1 It may
not be a very profitable crop io raiseiout
I think i has. been condemned on wrong
grounds. .' - :'i '. r- j; i; 3 J
; , Some time since I saw an article In'the
New-York World, from an Illinois farmer,
complaining bitterly, of a recomraenda
tion of Hungarian in a previous issue of
that paper. He stated, that the farmers
of his section raised it . extensively one
seasonfed a part of it and burned the
rest, not being able to sell it, or willing
to feed it. - He said that stock ate h with
avidity ; find -horses,' cattle, hogs and
chickens died around tthe stacks. ;He
further, stated that high spirited horses
became dull and. languid in a short time
when fed upon it, and a.t once regained
their spirits by a change of feed.
I am at a loss to know how this' could
be, unless they were fed so freely, as to
get too much seed before they; were ac?
customea to it. torn win co as caa as
tha; if feed injudiciously, as I know to
my sorrow, having lost a good cow by one
accidental surfeit. . I have .raised. Hun
garian Grass for the., last three years ;
fed freely to all kinds of stock, but 1 have
not been able to realize 'the slightest in
jnry to a single animal. .1 have fed three
horses almost exclnsively on it for the last
five months, without any apparent change
in ilieir health or spirits. I have my
doubts; however, about its being a very
profitable crop to raise , on the whole,
where corn can be raised so easily.: 1
have two objections to it : One is it is a
very exhausting crop, and1 the other is it
is hard to get :rj'd of when it 4 once gets
hold of the soil. ' Two years ago I sowed
on3 and a half acres on good bottomland.
Owing to the drouth it was cut very ear
ly, and not half the seed was ripened ;
consequently it eould not have its full
effect in exhausting the soiL : The next
season I sowed the ground to hemp, and
on the Hungarian stubble the hemp was
not so high by about eighteen inches as
on either side, one side off which had
beans the year before, and the other side
Buckwheat. ? . !
One such experiment may not be suffi
cient to establish a fact, but enough, at
least to create a doubt." Four years ago
I sowed a small patch for the first, and
although I have cultivated with other
crops ever since, there were still patches
of grass coming up last season.' ' My
opinion'is that corn sowed broadcast, and 1
plowed or harrowed in, will; yield more
feed to the acre, and of better quality
than Hungarian, "an3 leave the ground in
better condition for. the next crop.;' I in
tend to test the value of. this pinion by
experiment, and may give you the result
at some future time. I hope others wil?
give the result of their experiments, both
with-Hungarian and sowed corn. ;If
Hungarian must be .set. aside, let it be
for the true cause, and not condemn it for
murder when its only crime is, not being
able to compete with its betters.'

Tbe Totato Disease..; r .
) A writer in theiMark Lane (Eng.)
Express,': who has made ;the potato: a
study for years, arrives at the follow-
log. conclusions. respecting tneir ui-
seasecl condition ; ; ... (, ,
The Funguswhich 'causes I their de
cais always perceptible with the microscope,-
arid usually to the naked
eye. It generally attacks the'stcms
first,' a'nd theri' descends tolhe tul)eri
The same fungus is discoverable in the
diseasea tubers, ; ana in tbe eon con
tiguous to themand ja"i like; fungus
has never been found on healthy hauira
or tubers. ; ., . . ., : . , lT
; This fungus, when carefully removed
from the diseased leaf and transferred
to' the substance of the healthy tuber,
will originate the disease at the p'oihts
of. inoculation in from 4 to 8 days.
Every sort of potato will, under favor;
able conditions suffer but, as a rule,
tho thicker the skin the less prone, is
the tuber. to offer a timely, nidus to the
spores.-. Alii. remedies-of any practi
cal value ih checking the disease are
reconcilable with its fungoid charac
ter ; : and as a safeguard diseased stem3
and tubers should always be burned or
deeply buried.' Warm, humid weather,
with a gentle breeze blowing from , a
variable point, is favorable; to the in
vasion and rapid progress. of the-, di
sease;; whilst cold, dry weather tem
porarily check- ;.it3 " advance. The
writer's, practice for the stay of the
disease consists in cutting off and re
moving the haulm close to the ground
ween .diseased .about half wayjdpwa
Rake the soil over-the lower portion?
of the stems, and leave them, forra
month. This plan is inexpensive, anri
usually gives i lair result, , in some
seasons there .being only three, and, in
otners as nign as ten per cent 01 ui
seased tubers. Those not infected
were of good size, mealy,' and kep
well. ' :
a'.' f . T .
Another cood clan is to plant on
ridges, and when tho diseaf appears
m tne haulm, turn it down right ana
left, and: place. ajiftje earth over the
roots. The funnus is thus: washed
away from the tubers during a rain
We givo the above not to .endorse
them, , but only as the views of one
who speaks somewhat positively, and
apparently from intelligent expen
ence. Am. Agriculturist.
How far can Crows Count?
A correspondent of the Flattsburgh
Republican in discussing this question,
narrates the following incident which
goes far to answer it:
A few years since we were riding
in a stage-coach with several gentle
men, when the conversation turned on
the subject of crows, and many inter
esting anecdotes were related. Ont
gentleman said ; that ho' knew that
croivs could count at least as far as
three for he had often proved it.
Being troubled with crows in his field,
he had often attempted to shoot them
But they knew what a gun was as well
as he did, and therefore kept out of
his reach. He then concluded to put
up a small booth in the field, and place
some carrion a dead horse within
gun-snot, from tins place, he sup
posed he could hre at them when they
alighted to eat. Whenever he enter
ed the booth, the crows would all sit
on the distant ti ees, and not one would
come near till he was gone. Then all
would alight except the' sentinel who
remained to give warning if danger
The gentleman,' finding that plan to
fail,' tho' t he would deceive them. So
he took his son with liim to the booth,
concluding thit when they1 had seen
one go away, ! the crows would think
the coast was clear, and descend to the
bait. But when the son left the booth,"
a crow sunz out caw. caw. caw. (there
goes one) but not a crow would leave
his place. . -
The next day the gentleman took
two persons with him to the booth and
then let them depart one at a time.
The crows on the tree3 saw the first
and'eried out, - "there goes one," in
their own peculiar dialect. Then when
the other went the cried "there goes
two;" but they would not alight for
they counted three when they entered.
The day following, the gentleman
took three others with him. When
they went out one by one, the crows
cried "there goes one" -"there goes
two" "there goes three." And when
these men were out.of. sight they all
alighted, and the gun of the fourth
man did its work. ....... .
The gentleman statedthat this thing
had been tried repeatedly," and it was
evident that crows could count as f-tr
as three, but there their arithmetic1
ended. When they will ascend to the
higher branch of mathematics is yet to
be ascertained. In the mean time
others can bring on their incidents of
crotf-nology. . '. , '
Catting off Tops to Prevent Potato
. Uot. . ):
l G. F." Se.rvUs, of GlenVMont., Co.,
N. Y.,.has been experimenting-with
potatbs' to a' considerable extent, and
writes tov the Country Gentleman, in
confirmation of previous statements,
the following::;- i - ' : . .: .?v

scythe and cu5 off "the topi' of all' the

the piece.' ' One of the latter" I left in
tbxstate nature formed it. - The other,
I pulled the tcps by hand, leaving tho
tubers in the ground. - Xow for. the
result..-. At digging time in the fall, I ;
found the tubers in those raw's that had
their tops cut off and the row that had
its tops pulled off of equal . size, and
as near as. I could judge, had an equal
number 'of rotten tubers in a row, and
they Vere but few. - The row that wa3
left .as;natufer formed -it, -had about
four times as'-many rotten ;tubers as

cut off, ,or tho one-;' that ha;d its tops

never to plantthe same piece of ground
with this crop two years in succession.
The cabbage is more sensitive than
most other plants to feeding upon its
own decay. For thi3 reason, unusual
care should bs taken in preparing hoU
beds for starting plants. If tne same
oil has been used for starting plant3
the year before, it will be likely to im
part the disease to the young plants.
