Ed. Journal: Your correspond
ent, "Observing Farmer,'' has "hit
tho nail on tho head'' in regard to
those cockleburrs. Not so, however,
when speaking of tho sunflower.
Would it not be much better to util
ize that rich plant ? Supposing some
one owning a header should "head"
a sunflower field, thresh tho heads,
and give us tho result in the Jour
nal. A bushel of seeds contains
more and richer feed than a bushel
of com, or even wheat. The follow
ing, from one of my papers might
serve as an encouragement for any
one willing to experiment in this
direction. A. IIeniuch.
"According (o M- Grunert, of
Lithuania, the sunflower is Ijiere
universally cultivated in fields, gar
dens and borders, and every part of
the plant is turned to practical ac
count. A hundred pounds of seed
yield forty pounds of oil, 6carrel
inferior to Provence oil, and the
pressed residue forms a wholesome
food for cattle, as also do the leaver
and green stalks, cut up smati, all
being eagerly eaten. The fresh
flowers, when a little short of full
bloom, furnish a dish for the table
which bears favorable comparison
with the artichoke. They contaiu a
large quantity of honey, and so
prove an attraction to bees. The
seeds are a valuable food for poultry,
or supply fine groats of a delicate
almond flavor. Ground into flojir,
pastry and cakes can be made from
them ; roasted, they supply a pleas
ant drink; and boiled in alum and
water, they yield a blue coloring
matter. The carefully dried leaf is
used as tobacco ; the seeds recepta
cles are made into blotting paper and
the inner part of the Btalk into a fine
writing paper ; tho woody portions
are consumed as fuel, and from the
resulting ash valuable potash is ob
tained. Experience ha3 shown that
larire plantations of them in swampy
Places are a protection against inter-
mittent fever. Further, that they
will grow anywhere and in any soil,
with little or no attention. The
best seed is obtained from- tho

Vincent, in 1878. He was about to

Carbon county, Montana, and when

ment of every one he pleaded guilty
of murder in the first degree. He
refused to withdraw the plea, and
said he desired to dio In expia

was sick and his mind always un
easy. He could not close his eyes
at nigbt without seeing tho bleeding
