"We have received from Maj. Brooks
a copy of the liural yew Yorker, with
his first article on Nebraska. The
limited upaee allowed us will not per
mitits publication in full, except to the
exclusion of everything else. The edit
or in chief gives room however for most
of it. It will be seen that the Major
has formed very correct ideas of Ne
braska and expresses them forcibly
and to the point. lie will write a se
ries of articles. The second number,
he Informs us, is already in the hands
of the printer.
We hve perused a letter from Maj.
BrooUatothe Beer-tary of the State
Board, of recent date, in which he
says: ' ;
i'i am going to look after the Western mat
ters for the Hvral, and I hope y on will favor
me frequently with correspondence; and also
that Mr. Furnas, Harmon, Judge Mason, and
others, will do the same. The enlargement
of the Rural, and its great circulation, has
induced Mr. Moore to get his paper printed
in New York City, where It can be done
cheaper than in Rochester.
"Dr. Dean considers Dr. Griscom, who is
to write the Health articles for the Jtural, as
the ablest medical writer on sanitary subjects
In the United, States."

Mr. Editor: Permit me the use of
a small space in your paper, to ask of
the nursery agents, who we meet so
frequently, why it i9 they do not bring
on their stock in the spring, or any
other time they choose, and seil to the
people the same as our merchants do
with their goods? Why require v
in writing, that we will take such and
such stock, at such and such prices,
payable on delivery ; and wiien tlie
stock arrives, if it doea not come up to
our expectations, or is not such as was
represented, we must either take it. or
stand a law suit, the expense of which
would be more than the five, ten or
fifteen dollar order would come to.
Hence we pay for ourstock whether it
suits us or not. ' '
Now if these agents will, send or
bring on next spring, one to two thou
sand dollars worth of g-od nursery
stock, I would almost agree to pay
double price for all they could not sell.
We want Grape Vines.Currants, Rasp
berries, Cherries, Plums, Apple, Pear
and Peach trees, antl would purchase
a great many more than we do, if we
could have a chance to see the stock
before purchasing. .
And another fr'iiiig is, we want
grape stock grown in open.-air, from
thnrtmnhhi rive wood We -want no
hot-house plants. What we mean by
that is, we want grape vine grown
from two to three eye cuttings, antl not
from single eyes, which are placed in
three inch pots in January, ami kept
in a hot house until May or June, antl
then transferred to the open air. where
they make large roots the tirst season,
and probably die the next. : '
Now, Mr. Nurseryman, bring on
vour stock, and if it is as good as you
represent it. and will yield hulf the
xized fruit your nice pictures show, we
will buy a large quantity or you. ui
if vour stock is no account and sickly.
von had better stay away. There is
plenty of good stock in the country,
and we will have it even if it does cost
mnr than Door StOCK. 1'OOr stOCK t
dear at anv price.
If you won't do this, why don't you
bring or send samples, and sell and
deliver as per sample. We would
then have some show for our money.
I once knew a man representing
himself as agent for a Rochester nur
sery, who sold several thousand dol
lars worth of stock, and then went to
a certain nursery in Illinois and pur
chased all the ret used stock tms Illi

The idea of our friend "John," as to
having a stock of trees, vines, Ac, on
hand on sale, is good, we think. We
are aware it does not meet with gen
eral favor with nurserymen, because
of the fact that such stock is more or
less . exposed, and con.-equently in

ever, with care, and great success. A

Excepting a border along her warter
courses, , Nebraska is treeless ; she
needs timber. Good luck to her she
can grow it. Cuttings of cotton wood,
seeds of soft maple planted in June,
black walnuts covered three or four
inches deep in the fall, grow with sur
prising rapidity. Very many farmers
have planted small groves near their
dwellings, but they don't begin to re
alize the vast importance of the timber
question. One-third of all Nebraska
should forthwith be planted to forest
trees. There is some mistake in the
making up of any country without
trees itneedsmending; but I -am not
sure but It is easier to supply forests
where you want them than to remove
them from where you don't want
them. I saw on John J. Paynter's

many more this fall. I predict that
Nebraska will grow timber, and man

markets! No crop will pay her as

A Practical Farmer.
Generally speaking, thi3 means a
working farmer one who can take
hold of any tool or implement used in
agriculture, and go ahead with it
through the day and through the job
one who can carry on the operations
on a firm with the raw hand3 at com
mand, and If needful, conduct the
whole with a bevy of greenhorns.
There Is so much stress laid on this,
and on the danger of any one not Inti
mate with the details of agriculture
entering upon it, that many are deter
red from embarking in any farming
undertaking, when perhaps the party
thus discouraged is really very much
twtter adapted for a first class agricul
turist than ninety-nine out ofahun
dred of those who have been bred to
it, for those raised on a farm are some
times so blinded by the preladices and
antiquated customs handed down from
one generation to another, that they
do not have th good sense to see
through inherited, and inbred folly;
and some lack courage to reform, for
in any attempt to abolish old customs
an-l iril.'rw:c new o., t;;cre is atout
as much opposition & there always is
by the old tories of England azainst
every useful and enlightened altera
tion of the laws.
There is no class of men so slow to
advance as the regular home-bred far
mer. It was always so; for if a
brighter eon than usual is in the fam
ily, he becomes disgusted with the
toiling, diudging habits of the farm
and takes to something" else. It is
likely to be so In the future, till farm
ers' Drains can save their muscles
some, for why should the practical
farmer and all laborers uuder him be
called upon to work more hours than
any other class of men in the world ?
Why cannot the mrnas or agricultur
ists devise way and means to do all
that a man ought to do la twelve
hours, or even in ten, excepting in
harvest? Tradesmen, whose labor is
of a lighter kind, do not continue on
at their work so many hours. The
horses and oxen could do all they do
now in less time and be much-better
for it, but then the custom has" been
and Is now to be about all these hours,
and, though common sense and every
man's own feelings tell him that men
and cattle could do all that they do or
ever can do in ten. hours steadfast,
straightforward labor, yet longer days,
ane half the time idling, is preferred.
There Is not the least doubt of there
being hundreds of men who know
nothing about agriculture, and have
never had any opportunities of farm
ing or any correct idea- or iarmmg,
who would yet make excellent men of
business as agriculturists, would
eventually become better managers
than the practical farmer who derives
his origin from the land, and rise far
superior to any of the regular, com
mon, practical farmers, for when once
they master the common routine of
operations, and have knowledge of
the mode of proceeding through a
whole season, they are more open to
conviction on any point where im
proved systems are introduced, and
are free from the educational prejudice
of the home-bred farmer.
A thorough man of business, whose
early associations had not warped his
ludgment, on hearing that his neigh
bor's stock was looking much better
than his, would not rest till h knew
the reason; and, on finding that all
kinds of animals were turning out
much better than ordinary in a local
ity some hundreds of miles distant,
would visit that part of the. country
and aecertain how the farmers man
aged there, and, if he found they had
caused this Improvement by obtain
ing good males from reliable sources
and by generously treating the off
spring with uniform, succulent,
health-producing food, comfortable
shelter from heat, cold and storms.
he would immediately adopt the same
means, and probably, by having seen
the details of management on several
places, noted the different degrees of
excellence In tlie animal3 on ditierent
farms, and found out cause and effect,
his adoption or the best or these pro
ceedures would enable him to go on at
once in a more rapid advancement
than any one of these men had done.

excellent communication in a late
number of the Country Gentleman.
The Sllncr Plum.
When at the Wisconsin State Fair
this fall, we noticed ou exhibition In
the fruit department, a large hand
some red plum of a different variety
from any which we had before seen
On testing it we found It of good fla
vor, the skin rather thick, but leaving
the mouth quite free from any astrin
gent or unpleasant taste. We believe
this plum 13 a seedling from some of
the native plums of the north-west,
and it would be worthy of cultivation
even if It had no special merit beyond
the quality of its fruit. Hut in con
versation with Mr. Joel-Barter, of
Lancaster. Wisconsin, who had the
plum on exhibition, and who propa
gates the tree, it would seem- to have
qualities which must recommend it to
eastern fruit growers. Mr. : Barber
enumerates its chief points of value
as follows: The tree i3 perfectly bardy
and is not liable to injury from late
spring frosts ; it grows rapidly while
young, and is free from every disease:
it fruits early, bearing every year, and
is never injured by the curculio ; the
fruit keeps well, will bear transporta
tion and i3 excellent for preserving.' -Of
late years It is quite difficult to
grow plums in many localities, on ac
count of curculio and black knot. A
plum then so large and excellent as
the Miner, as shown to us at the Wis
consin fair, and which is proof again ?t
these enemies to plam' culture, must
be regarded a3 a desideratum. Origin
ating in the north-west,-where none
but the hardiest of fruit trees are suc
cessfully grown, we have no Joubt of
the hardiness of this variety. Ex.
Learning Cattle to Lead. L
,The following is. recommended" as
being an efficient and. easy way to
learn cattle to lead :
"Take two animals of about equal
size and strength and tie them. to
gether with a strong rope, bv placing
one end'around the horns of one ani
mal, and the other end around the
honi3 of the other, leaving three feet
of rope between the: inner horns,
then tie their tails together and turn
them into a field free from tree-. Let
them run, pull, and haul, until they
are tired of it, and they will walk side
by side andkeetftTether. Then take
off the rope an! they will ever after
ward lead with the docility of a child,
even though the . occasion may be
years afterward. .
