Colonel In your paper of the 30th
tilt. ,1 find a communication from
John," -who seenisr to be somewhat
,?r troubled about our tree peddlers and
nursery agents ; . and asks : "why is it
that Nurserymen 'don't exhibit their
stock for sale to the public, the same
sa the merchant docs his dry goods,"
nd faying that if V-one or two thou-
fcd dollars worth of nursery stock
could Ue 'beat to your place for sale
tzt $ pring, he would agree to pay
double price for all the stock that re-
r 2'ohni Tsujx'ct he has been
;d in" by
cillirg themselves nurser'
; r tent, who are now traveling ail over
m ui& country, ana witu but lew excep
tions the meanest set of. Firindlers now
'in distance, and are doing more to
4-! are the growing of fruits success
' fully, than all other causes known to
exist.' Bo long as people will patron
ise these swindlers, just so long they
may ha humbugged aud cheated out of
.' laciruara earnea money.
John, you should have sent your
' c rdcr directly to the nurserymen, and
ize 'times-out of ten you will get a
'??d articles and true to name. You
, ilov' Wiinf.us to bring our stock to
your door, and if j-ou think it is good
fyctr-TViU purch.sc "cf us. ' For your
information and the public generally,
I will.ay that it has, been my inten
tion all along to ship several thousand
vines tad other nursery stock of small
fruits to Col. Furnas, at lirownville,
. Nebraska, next sprinjr, for him to sell
on commission. I did so last spring,
and realized-a fair price for all I sent.
And tho encouragement I received
from those-who purchased the stock,
has indueed' me to send on quite a
stock next spring, and if the stock is
rnct-l?o. '1, "John", and his friends
xc ,lfi'ot. buy. I presume other nur-
f f c: -fix. in will be on hand with quite a
Ittk', aud your citizens can take their
choice. . . -
My vines are fair, and will do well
if properly attended to. I oftallcnjc
any one to produce better vines than
mine. I took the premium at your
fctate fair last season for tUebest grspe
vines, and I
shall try to do so next
J. W. PEARMAy.
A jricultural Editor Advertiser: -r
t Dear Sir In your paper. of Dec.
Cili appears an article signed "John,"
which asks why nurserymen or their
agents do not bring on their stock in
the spring and seir?t the same as the
merchant does his goods. I answer
tha nur?ery stock must be disposed of
immediately, or It is a total loss. For
instance, if I should bring a lot of
spple trees to Brownville in April,
i't .3.e Jarmers would say it is too late
to set trees this season it is too dry,'
&c. Others would not think of get
tirg.treos until May; and if they came
aruiLJound tho-trees-had been there
since April, would not have them.
Then again: I . might think justly
F sen thousand apple trees would
cll ia"T3rowaville next spring,and
bring them here accordingly. -Two
or three other dealers might bring the
same amount. The consequence would
be that three-fourths of the trees would
be a total loss.
Nowt I suggest thai farmers give
ft 't'r t. " fur as possible ; to resident
J. -3 ; iliat they give no order unless
t call! f.r good tives or plants, and in
(kooi order; that' if the agent Lrins
such, they pay for them "cheerfully.
and deal with that ajrent ajrain if pos
sible. Rut if he brings poor stock, or
in Daa oraer, stana a law suit it ncces
Teary, and thereby teach such dealers
,that it does not pay, and they will quit
-.me easiness. - ,'- . -

Agricultural Editor Advertiser:
I wish to say a word for Nebraska in
regard to timber. The great trouble in
this Stctew):h fctr'-rgcrs soeics to be
the scarcity i f lUnber; and hpy that,
have been hercrfor "years WiH often a'k
the question "what are we to no ior
wood?" Now, I will answer this
question. There is undoubtedly an
abundance of coal, as it has been found
in many places already, and can be
had for twenty-two cents per bushel,
which is nearly as cheap as wood, ;
But supposin? there is no coai, tuere
is still a remedy. JLet every larmer
plant timber. Let him plant ten,
tu-rntv or fortv acres owing to the
size of hh farm an din a few years he
will have plenty and to spare, to say
nothingaUoutUautifving the country;
and undoubtedly if -would prevent
drouth, and severe .cold and heat.
Having been experimenting this
winter on eutting timber that lias been
planted nine years, I find by cutting
one-third, that it makes sixteen cords
' M A tit 9 A. f . f A-
per acre; or nan cut on, it gives iony
eight cords per acre. By cutting one
third it leaves it thick enough to grow
well, for as i gets large it needs room.
The timber that I cut was planted nine
feet apart each way, which was close
enough, and it will need thining
out in a few vcars that width. There
mav be as manvyounj? walnuts plant
ed between the rows as,, there are eot-
tonwoods. I find that they do well
in the shade, and do thoj4touvpod
no harm : and when the eottbnwDod
is cut off you will then have a fine
walnut grove left. .
I find if cottonwood is set too close
it does not do well, and I am certain
that many set it too close.
Let every farmer set out timber.
Put it off no longer, and soon there
will be no lack of timber. And while
they are planting timber, let them not
fortret to plant hedce also. Ana re
member that anything that is worth
doing is worth well doing. Farmers,
neglect this no longer, and not many
years hence we will have oue of the
finest countries thesun eVcrshone on.
George J. Bryant,
The new fabric plant of the South,
Ramie, has a fibre as long and as strong
as llax, it is ns wmte .ana as nne .as
cotton, and as glossy a- silk, while it
needs less cultivation than cither, xiad
bears three crops a year. It is not in
jured by insects, and it sells for double
the price of cotton.
Bad oders from a style or stable

The owner of a model farm near
West ChesterPa,, killed out the Can
ad. i thistle by digging dowa with ahoe
ami cutting oil the roots several Inch
os below the surface. After beintr set
back in this way two or three times,
the root loses all enterprise and dies.
Clover plowed In has three effects.
It gives vegetable mold. The roots
bring to the soil plantfood out of the
subsoil"; and the acid produced when
the decay is going on aids' in dissolv
ing the mineral parts of the soil. " In
granite lands this last is of as much
importance as cither of the others.
It is said that of the nineteen mil
lion acres of land in the State of South

A new process for rresen'injr meat
has recently bcerr pateated in England.
It is claimed that meat may be kept
ferfectlv safe In any temperature after
laving been prepared by soaking it in
a solution ot the followins ingredi
ents: One pint of common salt dis
solved in four gallons of clear cold
water, and a half gallon of the bi-sul-
phide of calcium solution. It is said
that experiments, show that meats so
prepared will keep for twelve 'daj-s in
a temperature of.from 80 to 110;Tind
preserve their odor and JIavor. By
repeating the process, meats may be
indefinitely preserved. A little sold-.
tion of. gelatine, or white of an eerar.
may be added to the mixture if it is
desired to keep the meats an unusual
ly long time.

half an ounce of powdered cloves, all

pints of sweet cider, one pint of Ma

enough sugar to sweeten to your taste.
This will make a large jar full of mince

B. F." Haines, "vTayland, Michi
gan, writes: "I am boiling pumpkins
for my bogsand some of. my. neigh
bors say they are' nearly worthless
unless the seeds are taken out. What
do you think?" That they are not
'nearly worthless" if well cooked, as
that process diminishes -or nearly, re
moves the bad effect of the seed. It
is common experience that pumpkins
fed liberally to stock,; in a raw state,
cauc3 animals to urinate freely but
also fattens them. ,
A Few Words to-A Farmer.- Take

his eye kindles, his heart beats, and

Does she not share her little -bov's
happiness; and is not' luc love deep-

so just, and yet too often m cxtraordi

places, Into which separately you
might enter. It will give j-ou abund
ant and very favorable opportunities
to impart- instruction, to infuse and
cultivate noble principles, and 'to tle
velop and strengthen, a true manhood.
It will enable him to "see the world,"
and to enjoy a certain liberty; which
may prevent that future licentiousness
which so often results from a sudden
feedom from long restraint.
Go to Farmino. A good living Is
what comparatively few men succeed
in making in villatre or city life, and
yet nothing is more easy of accom
plishment on a farm. JJcsides, there
is a pleasure in cultivating find em1el
lishing tho earth, improving and In
creasing its products, and Unpadding
to the ae-gregate of human happiness.
Why, then, should young men hesi
tate to bo farmers? ; It is both profita
ble and honorable. It, is the nearest
approximation to independence that a
man as a member of society can make.
