Do Apples Injure Milch Cows!
The lack of intercourse among dairy
men, and farmers generally, socially
and through tho press, is a serious ob
stacle to the circulat'on of useful infor
mal on, which greatly retards prores
in the whole business of agriculture.
So few reail agricultural papers, or
have frequent conference with those en
gaged in sm Jar lines of business, that
it takes a great while for items familiar
to sonic to become known to others.
Fifteen years ago even agricultural ed
itor was every week or two plied with
tho question: "Will corn meal dry up
milch cows?" It took four or five ears
to "dry up" the inquiry s that it only
came at considerable intervals. We
see no more of it now. Evorybuly
seems now to understand that crn
meal is an excellent milk-producing
food, and only dr.es up tho how when
ed too frcclv. A similar inquiry in re
gard to a) pies has gone the rounds of
the press for several years long
enough and often enough, it would
seem, to bo familiar to the most iso
lated owner of a cow, but the questu n
stdl comes. The owner of a small
da'ry says: "I have a largo orchard
for the size of my farm, and, for tho
first time in several 3 ears, it is loaded
down w th apples. I have more wind
falls and fru t not fit for barreling than
I know what to do with. I could sell
them at the cider-mill, four-and a-half
nliles distant", for fifteen cents a hun
dredweight, but this w u!d n Jt tally
with my temperance principles, nor
pay for the labor of picking aud haul-
jJng. My pigs take all thev will cat.
well on them
cows would take the rest if tUv would
do them any good, or woulvRnot dry
tip the.r milk. Would they 'nave any
value for cow feed, or what had I bet
ter ,. with them?"
Repfr- Apples arc just as good for
cows :fe for pigs, but they can not. like
pigs, lie permitted to help themselves
aU libitum. The' must be dealt out to
them according to the judgment of tho
feeder. A halt-bushel per cow daily,
in two feeds:, would be used with ad
vantage. The writer once fed thirty
six cows running to pasture, each per
day, a peck of common apples, for forty-live
da$yn-d nho daily milk and
ch;esc1jii,d of the season showed a
pnMitTwT of 4;0 pounds of cured
ofceese due to feeding the apples, equal
to seventeen ounce3of cheese from each
1 ushel of apples, which was worth, :is
Jiairy cheese is now, teu cents a pound.
jThewhey from the increase of milk to
juiako that amount of cheese, reckoned
jat 75 cents per 1,000 pounds, was worth
!2.U0, making the total product from
405 bushels or apples fed, S45.U0, equal
to Hi cents per bushel. It cost less
trouble to feed tho apples to the cows
than to deliver them at a cider-mill,
though one was quite convenient. We
have no statistics of results from apples
fed to cows when making butter, but
consider them quite as valuable for but
teij as for cheese production. Our cor
re poudent does not say whether he
m kes butter or cheese, but whichever
1 lu makes, he need not be afraid of iu
iuring the How of milk or damaging
tlju quality of his products by giving
hjs cows a moderate daily feed of ap
ples. Over a considerable extent of coun-
Itrv where cows are a leading item in
-I the management of the farm, the appie
crop is this year very large, and the
fruit good, and thousands of bushels
1 are lying on the ground anil gom to
waste, which, but for tho foolish scare
about their drying up milk, might be
turned to good aceo.unt, and it seems a
pity that they shouldbe wasted.
Jjeediug t cows or pigs is not, how-
- ever, nlways the most profitable way of
disposing of all the apples not lit for
barreling or market. There is a
medium quality of apples between
those merchantable- and thoe which
generallj- go for cider, that are worth
more .for evaporating than for feeHrng
Apparatus for drying fruit is now so
cheap and convenient, aud operates
with so much, facility aud. ease, that it
pays " those who have apples pretty
plenty to procure a small evaporator
and dry the fruit on the farm. It often
happens that all the good fruit not
wanted for the use of thd iamily will
pay better when evaporate'd than, when

Baru-Cellar and Swamp- Muck.
A barn-cellar has many valuable uses.
Kot the least is that the Vats and crthor
vermin have no harbors as they have
inder ground f ojrs. Then the manure
s handled easier, it is all scraped out
of the gutters through the trap doors
aud goes down into the cellar upon a
,1001 bed of dry swamp-muck, which
absorbs and deodorizes it, and keeps
tho stable above sweet and clean. The
manure is saved from washing by rains
hud its full value preserved. The best
Use is thus made of the mauure, and its
bulk and value is doul led if one will
only provide plenty of dry swamp
muck: or forest leaves, ii he has these,
and not the other, to receive the urine
aud lo mix with the solid matter. A
very bad use of a iranurc-eellar is to
turn the swine into it uuder the excuse
that they wdl work up the manure. To
me nothing else is so horrible as to see
pigs wallowing in such a place and
pjeking food out of the dreadful mess.

value. The fertilizer manufacturer has

per eent of n:trogen. which the fertil
iser man values ar, let us say. the very
moderate estimate for him 1.3 cents
the pound. This makes the 1,000 pounds
of muck worth 21.5 . In the acre of

w, manure is a term of much wider
significance than people generally im
agine. It is not rest r.c ted to the con

I Domestic manures, however, which
can bo. composted on every farm, merit
attention, as their chief cost is the labor
employed. One compos: heap should
be formed within easy distance ot the
house, yet sufficiently remote from it
not to become offensive when fermenta
tion sets in. The foundation of this
heap should be turf, wood's mold and
leaves; over this should be spread a
layer of wood ashes and the soapsuds
which would otherwise be poured off
from the Monday's wash-tubs and per
mitted to run to waste. When the llrst
layer is well saturated and furnished
with a sufficient quantity of wood ashes,
a second layer of refuse vegetable mat
ter should be supplied and the wood
ashes and soapsuds again turned on it,
the same process being conlinucd la'er
bv layer throughout the winter. When
the heap is thawed in the spring and
fermentation is well advanced, tho
! whole should bo turned over and inc.or-
pornted, ami the new heap thus formed
may be suffered to remain until the
time arrives for carting it to the Hold.
It is very diflicult for us to appreciate
the fact that the rapid Ilight of "Father
Time" is constantly robbing us of our
physical 1 owers, after we have passed
the prime of life. We are unwilling to
admit naturally that the vivacity,
the elasticity and the physical vigor of
youth have measurcably passed away,
oven when we have reached three-core
years. This is true, however, while it
is utterlv impossible to escape "grow
ing old," prematurely, save by heeding
the warnings given us bv a natural
disinclinatTon to exercise with our usual
I activity and vivacity. As wo advance
in lite, there is an increasing love ot
home, of rest and quiet, our movements
being correspondingly measured and
Just to tho extent, therefore, that we
attempt, from habit or false ideas, to
continue our early customs, laboring
and walking at the former speed, wo
shall do so at a disadvantage, unnec
essarily exhausting our vital forces
con-tanlly on the wane. If the young
chooss to outstrip us in any respect, it
is wise to allow them the liberty, fol

are safe guides, as a general principle.
The human body like machinery run
at a dangerous rate of speed is 'rapid

av that druggi.-t- have been fore
into selling these goods on account of
the competition they have had to con
tend again.-t in the sale of patent med- ,
icines by dry goods establishments and
book stores, and because .-ome of their !
jwii number self the patent, or pro
prietary, medicines, below the regular
marked price. There is much truth in
this statement, but I think there i- an
other reason to account for the prac
tice, and that is the increased rate of
rent. In former times the item of rent
was not so great as it is now. and the
druggist could make a good living b I
conlining himself to drugs proper.
Now the expense for rent i.- a matter
for serious linancial con.-ideration. It"
is true, that the bu-iness yields a large
per centage of prolit. but the total '
sales are comparatively small. At one J
time, when the calling was confined to j
its legitimate sphere, the protit was
fifty per cent. Now the average rate
of profit is probably twenty-live or
thirty per cent. Lhorgc J. Munmn, in
