THE HOP-SCOTCH CLUB,
BY JOHN QUILL.
"But Mr. Wilkin, just listen"
"I say that you shan't join any such
organization as Ions: as you are a wiie
of mine. It' perfectly ridiculous for
a lot of women like you ana old Mrs.
Rmith to cro round and trv to firet ud a
Hop-Scotch Club. : Who ever heard of
a female playing such a game as that?
It ain't decent, I tell you. It's a good
enough game for a one-legged man,
and if you choose to have a leg sawed
off you can dance round as much , as
?rou've a mind to, but you shair't do
t till you are a cripple, if you shall,
I'm a Dutchman." , .

shoes to cover those feet, and creating

I know myself I ain't.'

couldn't stand on one leg to save your
life, and even if you could do it, do
you suppose I would want my wife to

Hop? Why, you can hop no more
than a cameleopard ican turn a back

We are often asked advice lis to the
the size or age best to plant fruit trees.
We have always advised and prac
ticed using the youngest trees that
were sufficiently developed to bear
transplanting advantageously. The
following testimonials of experienced
culturists we publish as corroborating
our ideas: ''

Mr. Buchanan thinks apple trees two
years old are better than those of more
advanced age ; and an apple tree trans
planted at that age, all other things
being equal, will produce fruit as soon
as one transplanted at four year9 old,
and make a more healthy tree.
Mr. Mottier thinks, on the whole,
aside from the peach, he would prefer
two-year trees, and and would not
take trees over three. At one year old,
the apple, year, Ac., have not their
roots sufficiently developed. He has
planted trees for thirty years. -
Mr. Mears has, within the last ten
years, transplanted thirty thousand
trees. As to peaches, pears and plums
he would prefer them at one year old,
and the apple at two years.

Knowing as we well do, the differ

manipulating theories advanced by
different persons, as to handling
grape juice," we are aware that to ad

gerous grounds. We admit, too, that
there in a vast difference in making
wine to sell or to use. The more for

the greater the yield, and consequent
ly the greater the profit. W.e are an
advocate of pure wines, and making

ably exhibited. The grapes are easily
pressed by a wine or even a cider
press, and can be - kept sepurate from
the lees or allowed to ferment on them
as strength is required. Not one drop
of water, .not a lump even of sugar is
requisite, aitnougn most or tne wme3
in this country are prepared with it
But the. fermentatioa is all an act of
nature herself. She-it is who makes
our, wine, and while the fermentation
is going on all that man can do is to
watch and let it alone. And when
that has ceased, the drawing off into
a clean cask and keeping it undis
turbed in darkness and perfect quiet
ny itseir, is ail that man can do. ' A
lump of loaf sugar in each bottle when
bottled, may give a champagne fresh
ness to it. but the simpler, the nurer.
the less of cookery in wine, the better
for it, and for those who have good
taste enough to prefer it thus. The
pure juice of the grape is best In sick
ness. The best grapes, and if sugar
be added, : the best and purest sugar
should alone be used.
For practical purposes, we have al
ways been an advocate of grade stock,
especially as applicable to cattle and
horses. It is a question worthy: of
consideration by all our farmers and
stock raisers. We shall refer to this
matter again. For the present we give
place to the following excellent arti
cle from the pen of the author of
"Walks and Talks" found in the No
vember number of the American Ag
"Our Agricultural Bocietles make a
mistake in not offering more liberal
prizes for grade animals. It is all very
well to offer prizes for the best Short
horns or Devon?, but farmers have
comparatively little interest in the
matter. The raising of thoroughbred
stock will be, ami must be, confined
to professional breeders. Farmers,
who keep cattle simply for meat or
milk do not want a herd of pedigree
animals. "If you raise ejhort-horns," '
said the herdsman of one of our well
known breeders, "you must raise them
as Short horns." In other words,
give the calf the milk of at least one
cow all summer, with what oil cake,
grass, etc., it will eat in addition. Now
this is all very well and penectly prop
er, it is the only way in wnicii to
develope that tendt-ncy to l.-iy on Uesh,
for which the breed is celebrated.
Keep up the system from generation,
and the tendency to consume large
quantities of food and convert it into
large quantities or beet become estab
lished, and this desirable quality is
imparted to the offspring. But we can
not atlord to raise stock tor ordinary
jurposes in this way. It is the prov
ince of the breeder and not of the far
mer. 1 ne value or tne snort norn con
sists in its abi.'ily to impart its quali
ties to common stock to give us grades
that have little otfal, and that will
convert a larire quantity of food into
beef or milk. It is the grades that we
want, and it is the grades that should
be shown. John Johnston once said
to me, "I don't care for pedigree. Let
me put my nana on an animal ana
that is all I ask." This Is true in the
sense in which he intended it. His
own experience proves, however, all
that the most enthusiastic advocates
of thoroughbred animals claim. He is
a neighbor of Mr. James O. Sheldon,
who has short horns second to none in
the world, and Mr. S. allowed Mr.
Johnston to send a favorite cow to one
of his best pedigree animals. Mr. J.
gave the caif the same treatment he
would any other calf, nothing more.
He never starves any animal, and did
not starve this -one. But it was not
stuffed or forced. It had no grain, and
received only ordinarj ' treatment.
Perhaps I ebould take that back, for,
as Mr. Cornell once remarked, "ordi
nary treatment" consists in keeping a
call so that it shall lose in the winter
half what it gains in the summer.
The calf received good, ordinary treat
ment, and nothing more such treat
ment as any farmer can afford to give.
Well, when I was there the calf had
L'rowii to be a steer, and was nfonths
old. A butcher came along and offered
Mr. Johnston 10 cents a lb live weight,
and take him at 1,400 fhs, or $140. He
would not sell him, though thinking
that he overestimated the weight.- Mr.
J. wanted me to see him weighed, and
I did so the next morning. After last
ing all night he weighed 1,3U0 fts. So
much for pedigree. Now it is just such
animals that I want to see exhibited.
I cannot go into raiding thorough
breds; I have not money enough. 'But
I can afford to raise good grades. All
that w need is thoroughbred bulls.
And it is so with sheep, and with pigs,
and I presume with poultry also. Let
us see what the use of thoroughbred
males will do when crossed on com
mon stock. Let U3 have a'good show
of grade animals at our fair.
"I have some thoroughbred Essex
pigs, and IaL-50 have some grade Essex.
That is to say, pigs from a common
sow, crossed with a thoroughbred En
sex. Tli -' thoroughbreds and the grades
have the came treatment, but the
grades of the same ae, are decidedly
ahead. The grades have all the sym
metry, fineness of bone, and tendency
to fatten, of the thoroughbreds, and
have the vieor and hardinesu of the
sow. To exhibit the thoroughbreds
does little good ; but an exhibition of
grades, fat tor the butcher, would show

A Settled Policy. on the Farm.1
The whole secret of the unccesaful
fanner often lies in his having at.tix.eti
plan of operations. Multitudes Lave
no plan but to meet their "immediate
necessities and' make money by the
easiest and seemingly shortest meth
ods. If wool bring-j high prices, they
will gradually give up dairying and
work into sheep, with .the expecta
tion orm.-iRing their fortunes. If wool
and mutton raising for a timo does not
pay, they sell their flocks at a 'threat
sacrifice. ,If hops are sixty cents a
pound, they invest in hop pole and
kilns for drying; and expect sidden
wealth. If when their yards come
into full bearing, the prices fall olT
one-half or more, they are disgusted
and ready to plow up their yards, con
cluding the business will not pay.
There are men who re always taking
up a good thing a little too . late to
make money by it. The farmer can
not afford thi3 continual change. His
business is less speculative than any
other, .andr af-xr, providing for the
wants of his -.&caii.-aiid stock, he
should give his attention steadily; to
thepnxluction of a few animals, crops,
or other products, "on which he can
rely to raise money.1 Any branch of
farm industry, steadily followed, will
be found profitable Dairying, n a
year of short grass, might not pay very
well. But the yeaxa-laf drought are
exceptions,, and the man who makes
first-rate butter or. cheese will find
them a reliable source of income.
