One of tho principal advantages of
mixed farming is the keeping of stock,
in which the dairy takes thelead. Prof
itable returns are realized at once, and
at the same time the productiveness of
the land is increased by the manure
that is made, while the keeping of sheep
on the broken and less accessible land
affords a further profitable income on
the investment difficult to be realized in
anv other wav.
Where mixed farming is practiced
each part is conducted on a reduced
scale, which affords a chance for doing
tho work weJi and in good time, and
with less interruption from unfavorable
weather. The spring grains as well
as clover and grass seed may thus
be got in earlier, a point of great im
portance. This gives a chance for
planting corn ana early potatoes, fol
lowed by the preparation of land for
buckwheat and soiliug crops, the les
sened work of each allowing all to bo
done in sufficient time to begin the most
important work of the farm the har
vesting of the haj crop. Where much
hay is to be made, as where the dairy
is extended, there is always more or
less hay spoiled by wet weather, some
times the greater part of the crop being
all but ruined, while the last that is
harvested is of little nutritive value
from over-ripeness. Hence the import
ance of getting the crop soon gathered,
which the reduced quantity in mixed
culture favors. Time is also afforded
for attending to the corn crop and other
ho-d crops. Then come the grains,
each of which is taken care of in its
turn, and all are harvested in good
time for other late summer and early
fall work. The numbor of cows in the
dairy being reduced a chance is offered
for securing better animals and talcing
better care of them, whereby the yield
of milk is increased and the profit on
it So, too, with sheep. Where the
Hock is reduced there will be less
crowding and better attention can bo
given, which results in a better qual
ity of wool, aud more and larger lambs.
By his mixed system, the Eastern
farmer seldom, if "ever, fails to secure
for at least some of his products a good
price, and in the best market in the
country. If a drqught occur in the
latter part of the season he has his
early crops that escape it. If his winter
grain is hurt, his spring grain may
cseap2, and vice versa. He has the
advantage of securing a high price for
his barley when not enough is sown to
supply the brewer, and it there is an
overabundant yield he has it to feed in
stead of other grain that may command
a proportionately higher price. If a
cool season affects his corn, it benefits
his potatoes If his corn and late pota
toes are hurt by drought late in the
season, the early products, like barley
and peas, and early potatoes, may be
Another advantage is tlie distribution
of the work throughout the year. Less
hired help is required. One good hand,
with the owner, if he is also a good
worker, will do about all that is re
quired on an ordinary Eastern farm,
with the aid, Of course, of implements
and machines, a full complement of
which can thus be profitably employed.
The chance afforded to turn down sod
is one of the chief advantages of mixed
farming. By this process the ground is
enriched, ami a means afforded for im
proving the land that has been in grain,
and is more or less exhausted. As our
droughty seasons here allow only a few
years to grass, and the same time to
grain, there is not that exhaustion of
the soil as where grain is made a
specialty; hence the land is improved
and continues to improve in texture
and fertility. Weeds are also better
kept down by variety in farming
N. Y. Sun.
The American Rural Home says:
Grass is treated with greater neglect
and abuse than anything on the farm;
it is trodden under foot it gets no ferti
lization; and vet we expect abundant
pasture and a bountiful hay crop.
We should promptly rid ourselves of
the delusion that we can have good,
permanent pastures or meadows with
out fertilization aud cultivation. Grass
is as much entitled to cultivation as
cors. Too much grass to the square
foot is just as bad as weeds in a corn
hill, so when grass becomes too densely
sodded, a good harrowing with a sharp
toothed harrow is a necessity.

How to Lire Cheaply,
One of the subjects talked and writ
ten abo-it a good deal at the present
time is how to live cheaply. Trices ol
all the great staples of life are high.
Rents are enormous. Fashions are ex
acting. Wants multiply, while resour
ces diminish. How to make strap and
buckle meet is the problem which press
es on hundreds of housekeepers of the
middle class. The difficulty in the prob
lem is to reconcile the irreconcilable.
The middle class generally wants all
the fine things, all the style and display
of wealthy neighbors. " Tho problem
would simplify itself at once should tht
middle-class family ceae trying to aj
pear what it is not and be content tc
appear and be thought just what it is.
It is what is done to keep up appear
ances that destroys the equilibrium be
tween outgo and income, and makci
life a drudgery and vexation. How tc
live cheaply is a question easy enough
to answer if one will be content with
cheap living. Substitute comfort foi
show. Put convenience in the place ol
fashion. Study simplicity. Refuse to
be beguiled into a style of living above
what is required hyour position in so
cielyaud is justified "by your resources.
Set a fashion of simplicity.neatness.pru
dence and expensiveness. which otheri
will be glad to follow and thank you foi
introducing. Teach yourself to do with
out a thousand anil one pretty and
showy things which wealthy people pur
chase aud pride yourself on being just
as happy without them as your rich
neighbors are with them. Put so much
dignity, s'ncerlty, kindness, virtue and
love into your simple and inexpensive
home that its members will never miss
the costly fripperies and showy adorn
ment of fashion, and be happier in the
cozy and comfortable apartments than
most of their wealthy neighbors are in
their splendid establishments. It docs
not follow that in order to live cheaply
one must live meanly. The great sta
ples of life are not costly. Taste, re
finement, good cheer, wit and even ele
gance are not expensive. There isne
trouble about young people marryinp
with no outfit but health and love and
an honest purpose, provided they will
practice the thrift and prudence tc
which their grand-parents owed alltheit
success, and make their thought and
love supply what they lack in the mean'
of display. Those who begin life at th
top of the ladder generally tumble off,
while those who begin at "the foot ac
quire steadiness, courage and strength
of arm and will as they rise.
There has been so much stealing done
of late years by persous of undoubted
respectabilitj-, "and high social stand
ing, that in order to cover up thcit
onenccs, new words, the meaning of
which it is difficult to discover, are in
vented. Shortage and shrinkage are
polite substitutes for theft. When ar.

There are a great manjr public

suspicious odor, suggestive of "some
thiag rotten in Denmark." There is a

to call it carburretted fcydrogea than
