FARM, GARDEN AND HOUSEHOLD.
The Higher Aim la Fannlag.
The higher aim of every intelligent
tiller of the soil should be the improve
ment of the productiveness .of his land
until it reaches the point where maxi
mum crops are produced at the least ex
pense. Wise husbandry regards the
farm simply as a machine for turning
out crops. The machine is the matter
of first importance. This is always to
be kept in good running order, and its
eiliciency is to be increased by all eco
nomical melhocs. The man who farms
upon this system will never sacrifice soil
for a great crop. His aim is to have
every crop taken off, leaving the land in
a better condition than he found it. Ue
aims in every working of the soil to in
crease its depth and to add to it more
elements ot fertility than he removes in
the crops, and to make the crops not only
pay for themselves but to pay for the
improvement of the acres upon which
they arc crown. In carrvinc out thiB
aim, so as to realize these results, a man
shows his skill as a cultivator. It is a
comparatively easy thing for any ono
who has money to improve the soil so
that it shall produce crops paying for
the labor of growing them and the in
terest on $200 or f 300 an acre. Stable
manure enough well plowed in will do
this. But it is altogether .another matter
to mttke this improvement pay for itself.
Yet it is a possible thing to do this, and
there are farmers skillful enough-to ac
complish this result, and this we hold to
be the true aim in the cultivation ot the
soil. The most judicious improvements
those which finally pay the largest
proQts require several years to bring in
their full returns. It is a matter of great
importance that the farming population
should not only be settled, but that they
should feel settled and plan all their op-'
erations upon the farm as if they ex
pected to spend their days upon it.
The li lory ef the Farmer.
Emerson, in one of his essays, por
trays in charming style the benefits con
fined on mankind by the farmer, and de
picts the beauties attaching to his God
given vocation. Let farmers study the
picture till they understand and fall in
love with its independent beauty.
The glory ot the farmer is that, in the
division of labor, it is his part to create.
All the trades rest upon his primitive
authority. He stands close to nature;
he obtains from the earth the bread and
the meat. The food which was not, he
causes to be. The first farmer was the
first man, and all historic nobility rests
on possession and use of land. Men do
not like hard work, but every man has
an exceptional respect for tillage, and
the feeling that it is the original calling
of his race, that he himself is only ex
cused from it by some circumstances
which made him delegate it for a time
to other bands. If he had not some
skill which recomaaeads him to the
farmer, some product for which the
farmer will give him corn, he must him
self return into his due place among the
planters. And the profession has in all
eyes its ascieat charm as standing near
est to God, the First Cause. Then the
beauty of nature, the tranquility and in
nocence of the countryman, his inde
pendence and his pleasing arts the
caresot bees, of poultry, of sheep, of cows;
the dairy, the care of hay, of fruits, ot
orchards aad forests, and the reaction of
these oa the workman in giving him a
strength and plain dignity, like the face
aad Manners of nature. All men keep
the farm in reserve as an asylum, where,
In case of mischance, to hide the prop
erty, or a solitude if they do not suc
ceed in society. And who knows how
maay glances of remorse are turned this
way from tbo bankrupts of trade, from
mortified pleaders ill courts and Senates,
or from the victims of idleness and
pleasure. Poisoned by town life and
town vice;, the sufferer resolves; "Well,
my childen, whom I have injured, shall
go back to the land, to be recruited and
cured by that which should have been
hay nursery,, and now shall be their hos
Lhe Stock Tor Front.
One of the most interesting questions
to the farmer, just now, is how lie may
make the most out of his stock. The
common native stock of the country is
not sufficiently profitable. It produces
too little beef, butter, wool, mutton,
pork, and lard, and it takes too long to
produce what it docs, to be profitable in
this rapidly moving age. Farmers must
float with the stream of Improvement, or
they will find themselves cast high and
dry upon the banks. Feed is the farmer's
taw material and his stock the machinery
from which he manufactures his wares.
No Batter how skillfully he feeds, if his
machines are imperfect or slow in ac
tion, his wares must necessarily cott too
much. To improve his machinery, that
is, the stock which he feeds, is as need
ful as to study how to feed. All the in
vestigations and experiments he, and
others for him, can make go lor nothing,
if the animals he feeds cannot digest
and assimilate the food in sufficient
quantity to turn it into salable material
fast enough. In order that this may be
done more rapidly, breeders have, for
years, been improving their stock. Cat
tle, sheep, and pigs of improved breeds,
come to maturity and reach double their
weight at half the age of the unimproved
breeds. Unfortunately we are bewil
dered when we hear and read of the
marvelous prices at which some of these
animals are sold. Clearly they are out
of the farmer's reach. But it would be
wroDg to suppose that he is therefore
debarred lrom improving his stock by
the use of improved animals. The past
month over 1,000 head of Short Horn
cattle have been sold at various public
sales. Many of these have been of the
fancy sort, valued at very high prices for
their pedigrees. No complaint can be
made if a wealthy man choose to ejve
$10,000 for one of these animals, any
more than if he gave the same amount
for a diamond. He injures no one, and
does, at least some good with his surplus
money. But. fortunately, lit has no
monopoly of the really good cattle. A
good judqe of stock would bo equally
well, or better satisfied with an animal
that at the same sale bpngs but
$200 or $500, simply because its family
is not so fashionable, or it has not "so
sweet a head' Hundreds of valuable
bulls are sold every year at piices that
any prosperous farmer can afford to
and which will
him a hand
some profit. Tlie prize milk cow at the
New York State Fair, this year, was a
grade Short Horn, sired by a bull that
was not valued at more than $150, if so
much. The fattest steer was of the same
kind. There were two-year-old sheep
weighing 290 pounds, and yearling pigs
that weighed over 300 pounds, and the
sires of these animate could have been
purchased lor $50 each. To use such
animals as these would in a short time
double the value of our farm stock. Let
no one then bo deterred from investi
gating this matter of improved stock,
because some rich men choose to make a
fancy of a certain class of it, and give
what some may think ridiculous prices
for it. We gave $5, (a ridiculous price
it was thought,) for our first pound of
early rose potatoes, and the second year
we gave away more than $5 worth to
friends, and sold $125 worth at $1 a
bushel from the produce of that pound.
Improved stock: ought to be a better
thing to have than an improved potato,
and it is, provided it is used with judg
ment and well cared for. American Ag
riculturist. (iuano in Iowa.
A correspondent inquires if guano can
be profitably employed as a fertilizer In
Iowa. Wc think not. It is costly, and
can only be used where nothing else can
be had cheaper, and where tbo products
of the farm are dear. The deep, rich
and fertile soils of this State can be
kept profitably productive by rotation of
crops, by clover, and by raising less ex
haustive grains ani more cattle, sheep
and hogs. With guano for a fertilizer
corn cannot be raised for $1.00 per
bushc1, and with grain at this price we
cannot raise cither hugs or cattle to
compete with otlier markets. And that
farmer should know when he is starving
his farm to sterility, that he cannot fall
back successfully on guano and super-
posphates to retain its fertility,
If the Iowa farmer would succeed for
years to come, he must farm with wis
dom, and preserve unimpaired the pro
ductivcne&s of the
ruined farm is like

iepairing a squan-
dered fortune. Rich prairie land should
be kept up to its original productiveness
by using ail available stable and other
manures by rotation of craps by
clover and by more stock. No, sir,
guano cannot be brotitably introduced
to the broad plains of Iowa. The native
deposits on the islands of the Eea are too
limited for Iowa's thousand acrexfields.
Nor can the mills manufacture booedust
or phosphates to restore our wastes,lf the
unwise practice of our farmers once re
duce our soil to poverty. Iowa's capital
the wealth of our soil is being rap
idly carried away at high tariffs, in our
cereals, and must stop, or our crops will
gradually decrease as population in
creases. We do not expect to enforce
the importance of this lesson upon
breeders and tanners, and as aconse-i
quence their descendants will becoatel
hirelings, and their estates swallowed up
by such as think mot and act wisert.
Farms lying between the cities of Bos
ton and Lowell, with all their local ad
vantages, are not worth as much per acre
as in Central Iowa, for the reason that it
takes all the profits each year to pur
chase high priced fertilizers. And. if
Iowa has to come to this, as well as high
tariffs to the 6eaboard, Iowa soil will
become as valueless as the hills of Pales
tine. C. F. Clarkion, in Stale licgiitcr.
Xew Discovery in Electricity.
T. A. Edison, of Newark, New Jersey,
an electrician and inventor, has just
mnde a discovery, alluded to in. the
Tribune a short time ago, which, it is ex
pected, will throw new light on the na
ture of electricity, and possibly mani
fest the existence of a hitherto unknown
natural force. On the night of Novem
ber 2d, while Mr. Edison and his assist
anr, Charles Batcbelor, were experiment
ing in their laboratory, they made a dis
covery which is recorded as follows in
"In experimenting with a vibrator
magnet, consisting of a bar of Stubb's
steel, fastened at one end and made to
vibrate by means of a msgnet, we
noticed a spark coming from the core of
the magnet. This wc have often noticed
before in relays; in stock printers, when
there were iron filings between the arma
ture and core, and often in the new
electric pen. We always supposed it
was inductive electricity, but happened
to nctice it when it seemed so strong
that we suspected that it might be some
thing more than induction. Acting on
the supposition, wc found that by touch
ing any portion of the vibrator or magnet
with a piece of metal we got the spark.
We then connected a wire to the end of
the vibrating rod, and got a spark by
touching a piece of iron to it."
The expeiimenters were led to try the
effect of different metals in drawing off
the spark, and soon found that cadmium
was the most effective for their purpose.
A bar of this metal was placed acioss
the magnetic coil of the electric instru
ment, and a long wire attached to it
The electric circuit was thus drained of
its current, which passed through the
cadmium and the subsequent wire into
a gas-pipe, and so into the earth. Not
withstanding this interruption of the
continuity of the circuit, it was found
that, when any metalic substance was
brought into contact with the gas-pipe,
or, with the intervening wire, a white
spark was evolved with unusual brill
iancy. Then it occurred to Mr. Edison
that possibly this spark might be the
manifestation of seme unknown force
acting simultaneously with electricity.
Accordingly he applied to it the tests by
which the presence of electricity is de
tected, and was surprised to find that the
testing instruments gave no indication
of the electric presence. A delicate
gold-leaf electroscope was undisturbed
by the new manifestations, conclusively
proving either that electricity may man
ifest itsi-lf in entirely new phases, or
that under certain conditions it gives
birth to a new and distinct force.
Mr. Edison has named the new princi
ple "etberic force." This discovery was
put to test by various experiments, and
the following results obtained; That the
new force is non-polar, radiating iu
straight lines like heat: that it is capa
ble of transmission to indefinite distan
ces through an-uninsulated wire that it
is not affected by the ordinary non-conductors
of electricity, as class, &c , and
that it is is retro-active, the spark being
obtainable when the wire is turned back
so as to touch itself. Mr. Edison is of
the opinion that it can bs made to mani
fest Itself otherwise than by the spark,
and that it may be derived from heat in
dependently of electricity.
In order to put it to a severe test he
connected a wire from his laboratory
with the ordinary telegraph wire, and by
permission of the Telegraph Company
was enabled to make a circuit extending
from New York to New Brunswick, N.
J., both ends terminating in his labora
tory. After passing through this great
extent of wire the electric current was
diverted, the cadmium wire attached,
and a series of sparks evolvad as readily
as though the circuit bad only been a
yard long. The practical value of his
discovery consists in its manifestation ot
the possibility of sending messages over
cables or wires not insulated. Instead of
employing poles and glass insulators it
seeszs ta be necessary only to make an
attachment to the railroad track or to a
wire laid in the earth, and the message
can be as readily transmitted as by the
present process. The expensive insul
ated cables now used tor ocean tele
graphy can be rivaled by cables of much
cheaper construction, and in ether ways
the present cumbrous apparatus neces
sary for utilizing electricity may bo
avoided. JT. T. Tribunv.
