'"'litre are two 4listinct classes of
Kiae vines. 1st The European or.
easieni iintieuous to Europe, Asia or
Aluca, iiu.l otLen refer red to by the
most ancient poets ami iiissoiiaus.
Tiie American or western, foumi
growing wild by the earliest explorers
ami exiemliii over a large pul l ion of
the cuiiiiiieiil. The Eur. pean grape
has a soliU pulp cuveieil with a thin,
closely adhering sUin. ll is said t
;l;li!"is!i best wiien set alining lie l ucks
of snug hillsides, rrquii ing iitlie sup
port other than the nakt-u rcks. l itis
habit 4f growth seems tt be referred
Co i;i iiu- songs of Solomon, 2:id chap
tei , 15th verse, wheie tiie wise man
speaks of "The Foxes, the little foxes
that spoil the vines; for our vines
have tender grapes." also Aristoph
anes, a distiugui hed wiiler of An
cient Greece, compares armies of sol
diers to foxes. He says '-Invading
soldiers spoil who.e countries as the
the foxes tlo the grapes-." -These al
lusions to the destruction id' the
grapes by the foxes ami specially by
"the little foxes," would scarcely nave
been appropriate, unless the grape
vines naturally gro a very low or were
made to do so by cultivation.. The
American grape has a thick kin en-
closing ;v movable pulu that readily
slips out when the grape is slightly
j pressed. The cultivated American
! grape in all its varieties is derived
from the wild native vine which is
I naturally a great climber. I saw, in a
(Michigan fonst, a wild vine some
three inches in diameter, suspended
from the top of a tree not less than
ninety feet high. I alao saw in New
Hampshire, a cultivated vine grown
from the seed of a wild Connecticut
stock. It had been s t near a large
elm tree and had spread over a consid
erable part of it, some parts of Hi;
vine covering branches forty or fifty
feet hijli. For seventy five or eighty
years this vine had produced an av
erage annual yield of about twenty
bushels of choice fruit. Its fame had
spreail far and wide, and many a well
rooted slip Inul been parted from the
parent vine. The vine during all this
time had no cultivation, no pruning;
it weeded none; in its setting it was
given all it required, soil, protection
and room to spread. When last heard
from the old elm and vine still main
tained their youthful attachment t
each other; and,, after feeding v three
successive generations with its gener
ous clusters of delicious fru-t, it
seemed ready and willing to feed how
many more i know not. Now, from
the tenor or what has been said, it
w ill be readily perceived that there :s
no foolishness about the grape vine,
that its requirements are numerous or
expensive in considerations of its gen
erous returns. Its requirements are
four; soil, prottction, support and
room. -1st, Soil; in reference to soil, it
needs only to be remarked that it is
good enough any where in Nebraska
for grapes. 2nd., Protection ; the vines
must be protected from ''the foxes."
Underfills term must be embraced all
intruding animals whether biped or
quadruped ; in short every man ought
to have a piece of ground fenced
against all domestic animals. In this
enclosure should be set all the fruit
bearing trees and shrubs, the vi"?s
and ali the garden vegetables, and
some room left for flowers. All can
be so set or planted in rows, as to ad
mit ot most of the work being doiu
by the cultivator as in the corn field.
If farmers have children of a suffi
cient age, I would advise to give rhem,
bojs and girls, each a patch of ground
m the enclosure for their own to cul
tivate, to set fruit or flowers such as
they may choose and all ihe proceeds
H be their own. Thi3 w ill generally
prevent an inclination to join miy
gang of garden' or orchard i.eHk
thieves, and incline them rather to
lakesuch a course in youth as will de
velop into honorable maturity. The
third requirement is support; as
sliowii in the preceding remarks
the natural support of the grape vine
's a living "t re? to Hi" 'uastclies tf

i he best tree for this purpose so far
f 1 kiit-iw is thi elm I prefer Ihe
white elm on account of its rapid
uvowth, superior toughness of its
wood, ihe smallmss of its leaves and
the greater spread ?r its Iiiunehes.
If trees are used for bupporting the
vine. they shiui'd be set as early as
possible in the spring and at least as
far as twenty feet apart. The vines
cm be set at the same time about
four feet from the trees and in the
line 4f the trees north and south. If
at any tinie tiie vines sliouTd spread
? ? ?
so as to be in danger uf smothering
the trees they must be cut back or
tliinueil so as lo give the trees full
growth. Stakes and trellises are usetl
for vir.e supports to a large extent.
When these ai e used there ia need of
much pruning to keep the vines from
becoming so ilense as to smother the
fruit, but in thinning do not cut away
the leaves of the bearing canes,
for they are the lungs of the plants,
and without them the fruit will re
in tin give-i till killed by the frost,
but cut out the weaker canes and sur

must have room to spread. This re

thick either prune out 4r extend the

Mr. President! Ladies and Gentle
men! I regard this subject of poultry
raising as one.of no small importance
to every husbandman, but one of deep
and growing interest. To say nothing
of the convenience and pleasure of a
well Iille4l poultry yard, we regard it
as a s.)tuvi of actual profit, yielding
bacK the 4juickest returns and the
largest dividends in proportion to the
amount of capital invested, of any
other branch of husbandry. Those
who have kept an actuate account of
all expenses and incomes of their poul
try tell us that every fowl kept, will
pay for itself four times every year.
There is nothing else kept on the farm
yielding so large a per cent if profit
with so little labor.
Our object in this paper will not be
to cive you a history of the various
kinds Jof domesticated fowls; for
the i istory of their first domestication
by in in. runs so far back into the re
mote ages of antiquity, that we have
no history lo guide ns, nr tradition to
point its uncertain finger to the time,
place and circumstances of their first
domestication. All these are utterly
hist in the obscurity of the past. But
our great object will be to call atten
tion to some of -the leading tribes of
the great poultry family; ami make
some suggestions in reference to rear
ing, fattening and marketing the sai.ie.
First of all, tae great pains in the se
lection of your stock, and get none but
pure blood to breed from. Do not
keep but one variety. If you attempt
more, the result will be the intermix
ing of the two and the loss of pure
blood. Among all the Asiatic farm
lies there is but little choice. Each
has its own distinctive features, pe
culiarities, excellence and admirers.
Some excel as egg producers, some in
early maturity for market, and others
as possessing a superior flavor for the
table, one mentions the Brahma as the
most desirable and important of all
the 4liff4'rent families. Here are two
varieties, the light and the dark Brah
ma. We mention next the Penciled
Hamburg, two varieties, the Silver
Penciled and the Golden Penciled.
There are four varieties of the Cochin
family, the Buff, Partridge, Black and
the White Cochin. There are several
other varieties such as the Houdans,
.English Dorkins, Black Spanish, Dom
inique, Plymouth Hock, Lang Shangs,
Having selected your .tock provide
a warm comfortable house for them.
It need not be expensive but matle of
plain boards and covered with the
same material, if only dry awl .warm
in winter, a.ni roorn.y a;;d well ventila
ted n siuviHHl", U should always
face the eolith apcl contain plenty of
windows. The perches fchojld be on a
level and not more than two or three
feet from the mound for heavy breeds.
Everything abouc the house should
bo kept clean and neat, with a good
supply iif j.uie water a liberal supply
of food, and a large shallow box rilled
with ilust or dry ashes, for bathing
purposes as a preventative against
lice. They should always be weU
supplied with gravel. b'W-Ut Um-s,
lime, small bit,g , p.? i.iA.kVn earth n, 4r
;.l.iU-i -lug fallen from the walls of
the house. For their iliet give them a
variety buch as corn, oats, buckwheat,
w heal ami w heat screanings, also a;(
occasional meal 4f boiled (.utuiot-s
with chopped C'.ibUusi'u, nd onions
with V.Hs. of av meat,
If Cue weather is cohl give them lt t
t'o4 M 1 such us luit mush mixed very
si it?, and hut boih-i! ptatties mashed
am! well seasoned vith ground pepper
or iugi-i , to st it ni. late iiig ami pfe
vent sitiing. Ahviiis i'eeij upon the
clean ground or u vicaii board.
Carefully observe these suggestions
and follow them rigidly, and you will
never have the cholera among your
poultry, bur always have plenty of
fresh e'L's lo sell in winter when they
are scarce and the price high.
If your fowls show signs of lice by
losing their feathers from their necks,
fumigate and whitewash' your hen-lvous-e
frftiifently, and sprinkle a lixtiV
r F" " 1 1" "'1 ( 11 "'" "S f
Scotch snuff in their feathers and you
will soon be rid of them.
For setting, select hens from two to
four years old, as they make the best
mothers never set pullets if you can
possibly avoid it. Always set two at
the same time in a safe dry place and
give ali the young chicks to one of
them to nurse. Let the coops be large
and dry, well littered with clean dry
litter every day. The young chicks re
quire hearty food, such as corn meal
mixed very still' and fed frequently.
Occasionally mix a little ground pep
per in their food to prevent the gapes.
They need extra feetl and care while
feat hering out, as then the ilraiu oi
their physicial constitution is the
greatest. Hatch your chickens as ear
ly as the weather will alhiw. The
earlier the better if you design them
for market, as tiie early market pays
the best. If you fail to get them into
the first market, as a rule keep them
late, evtn until spring, when they are
fully matured and the market is al
ways st rong.
Next to the hen in importance is the
turkey. The same caution to get the
best variety should be exercised. Orig
inally there was but two varieties of
w ild turkey, the brown turkey of N.
America, and the Honduras turkey of
Central America. These have been
domesticated and breil with our com
mon turkey until we have several va
rieties. The most important of these
is the Bronzed Black Turkey. This is
the largest and best of the domestic
tribes, and is said to h ive been pro
duced by a cross of the wild male upon
our common turkey, proilucing very
large specimens, somet lines weighing
from ;iu to 40 lbs.
The turkey lias such a roving na
ture and is such a poor provider, it is
better to set her egs under a hen. Be
sides turkeys reareil by a hen are more
doineslicatttl. Set from 7 to 9 eggs
under a hen, and set two hens,
as one hen in a goou coop wiil rear all
the two will hatch. The little chicks
are very delicate ami need good care.
Give each one a kernal of whole or un
ground pepper when lirst taken from
tiie nest to prevent the gapes. Feed
them often a little at a time as they
are not hearty but delicate eaters.
They require corn meal well cooked in
a cake and pot-cheese as a change.
Give pure water or some milk for a
ilrink. When preparing for market
confine them closely, feed liberally and
they will fatten in two or three weeks.
As a rule it pays best to keep them
late and fatten well as they are solil
per pound and bring a better price.
Always keep the fine t specimens to
A few ducks and geese should be
kept on every farm. They are espec
ially valuable for their feathers as
well as eggs. The Ilouen D ick is re
commended as best adap'.cd to the
faun. They aie large size, prolific
layers ami yield a large amount of
feathers. They never. roam, and fat
ten easily. The young are easily rear
ed being hardy, good feeders anil in
veterate insect hunters. Ducks should
be put in a pen every night and de
tained until after they have laid be
fore being set at liberty. An erron
eous opinion has obtained among far
mers that ducks ami geese require a
pond or a stream of water in onler to
be successfully raised.
They only reiiuire a pool or box set
in the ground and filled with water
large enough for them to wash and
bathe in. Both experience and obser
vat ion teach us that too much water
is a detriment to them. They spend
too much time in swimming for pleas
uie and too little time in eating to
In the Goose family the Bremen
Geese are recommended the highest, as
worthy a place on every farm. They
are large, weighing "JO to 85 lbs and
pure white in color. The period of
incubation is five weeks and may be
reared by the hen. The poultry yard
is not complete without the noisy
cackle of the Guinea fowl. But a very
few of them will answer. They are
very shy and quarrelsome in their na
ture ami their young'tlLflicult to rear.
They are good layers" laying from 70
to 100 eggs in a year.
How I hey Take.
The nomination of Hobertson, wlm

ling in New York City last fall, for
Collector for the Port of New York,
City, creates surprise and ctmsiderable
?omment. The other nominations,'
like Chandler, Merritt and Phelps,
hail theeffeot of removing the feeling
among some Hepublieans that the
president was yielding to the stal
warts. The Collector of New York
has a large patronage and can wield
immense political power more than
any other Government officer in th
Stiit;'-. t'tmklh'g, it ii said, greatly
preferred not to have this power in
the hands of a man who opposeti him
so strongly a Hobertson. but it is not
believeil that Conklnlg will oppose his
couth ination as that would endanger
the cmd'ii lualion of Conkiing's friends
who have been nominated for vlaces
in New Y4irk. The action of the
president in dividing the patronage
between both factions is regarded as a
4lesire t4 harmonize the party in New

The following letter was mailed to
the New Y'ork Sun yesterday after
noon by one of the best known stock
men of the state:
Omaha, Neil, March 31, issi.
To 1 lie Editor uf The New York Sun :
In a late issue of your paper the
statement was made that the loss in
cattle dining the past winter upon the
western plains ami the cattle grazing
country of the Northwest has ben
about five million dollars. This is a
gross misstatement of the facts, and
tine that your valuable paper will, I
am sure, be desirous of correcting, if
you are satislitl that the statement
is wrong. "The Sun which shines
for all" has a too far reaching inllu
ence not to correct mistakes. I have
been in the cattle business upon the
plains for the last thirteen 3-ears, ami
my investment is large enough lo
prompt me to watch the matter of
cattle losses very closely. I have
made several trips lo the cattle
ranges during the winter, and have
coiiipaml notes with many others who
have visited the ranges of Nebraska,
Wyoming, Colorado and Kansas.
The number of cattle upon the ranges
of these mates ami territories last fall
was about 000,000. Their average
value is about S20 per head. This
would m ike their value twelve mill
ion dollars, and if your statement is
correct the percentage of loss would
exceed forty per cent. The fact is that
the loss of this winter does not exceed
seven (7) per ce.it., being in cattle not
more than 42,000 head, or in immey
SS43,O0(). and, by hiss, I mean not only
the direct loss by cattle dying, but the
incident hiss from lack of increase.
Tbe cattle will come into market
this spring in S4imewhat poorer flesh
than usual but on account of the
greatly increaseil moisture in the cat
tle country there will be much earlier
and better grass than we have Known
for years. The stock interests of the
far west have never been in better
prospects than at present ami I know
that you anil your readers will be
pleased to know the fact.
In regard to my own interest and
my position to know the whole truth
of the matter, I refer you tt Messrs.
Kountze Brothers, bankers. Wall st..
New York, and to Sidney Dillon Esq.
President U. P. H. H. company.
Very truly yours. '
