And now the youngsters of our studs
and herds and flocks are commencing
to put in their appearance upon the
farm, and the writer feels that a word
or two as to their proper reception and
care will cot come amiss even to ex
perienced readers of the Paumers' Re
view. Well aware are we that what
we shall say has been said many and
many a time before, but that matters
little when the importance of the sub
ject is considered. For instance, one
could not too often condemn the very
common custom of allowing brood
sows to bring forth their young in the
hoe-lot used by all the swine on the
place. Nor is it out of place to remind
owners that a nest of mud in
the shelter of a rail fence
where the weeds of last year
offer but poor protection against rain
and wind is not more suitable. Your
pigs, neighbor, pnssibly have better
quarters than these, but all the same
we have seen pigs come under worse
conditions and circumstances. To be
sure they did not stay long in such
environments, for the sow either ate
them herself for want of other food,
or out of sympathy, or the herd joined
in the picnic on the protection prin
ciple. If a brood sow is worth keep
ing at all for breeding purposes she
surely deserves to be provided with a
comfortable place in which to have
her pigs, not merely for her own sake
but that the youngsters may have a
chance to live and thrive and bring
profit to their owner. There is an
other side to this question, for we
must confess it is often a
good thing that the young
pigs die. They are scrubs at best and
no matter how they may be fed will
never prove profitable so that their
loss is least if earl. Again in every
litter there is at" least one poor pig as a
general rule, and the good manager
will knock it on the head at once and
so give the rest a better chance, just as
we remove the surplus corn plant from
a hill to allow the other plants work
room and nutriment. (J ranted then
that the young pig, and lamb and foal
and calf each come in a good place,
warm, well bedded, well ventilated
and free from disease germs, there re
mains to feed it properly. Nature
provides in the mother's milk a
strongly nitrogenous diet. The
first milk is adapted to the
purpose of cleaning out the bowels of
the young animal, and that done,
changes in composition almost daily

during the first two weeks of life. If
then a mother is lost and the young
one has to be brought up by hand it
should be remembered that nature's
plan must be copied closely if the ani
mal is to do well. When a mare or
cow has been milked prior to partu
rition the new born offspring receives
milk that is not suitable for its sys
tem; constipation follows, often with
fatal results. It is well, therefore, to
see that the young animal under these
circumstances is given a mild purgative
or injections of warm water to
clear the meconium from its intestines.
The milk of the cow that has had her
calf months ago is not so suitable for
a new born calf as would be its own
mother's; so, if such milk is to be
used, it must be made more nitro
genous by the addition of a small quan
tity of oil meal or the mucilage made
from flax.and by maceration in boiling
water. Oat meal will also prove use
ful in this way. Another point worthy
of attention is that while a young ani
mal not properly fed may very early
learn to eat hay or grass, it should
not therefore be taken for granted
that other feeding ma' safely ceafc.
Such food is often a "foreign body" to
the youngster's stomach, hence docs
not nourish it properly. It may do no
harm in small quantities along with
other suitable food, but on no aecount
should it be made to take the place of
the latter. On general principles
then the food of all young animals
should be rich in nitrogenous in
gredients, for those go to build up
bony frame and muscle and blood
and nerves and hoofs and Jiair. The
corn diet should not be commenced for
any animal until this foundation has
been well laid.
A Good Horseman.
F. A. Dcrthick, in a recent address
said: The amount of work that the
farm te.m can perform and keep in
good condition depends largely upon
the driver. I am acquainted with men
whose horses durinir the biisv sonson
get low in flesh, are galled and show i
every sign of ill usage. Other men, on
the same feed will accomplish as much
or morework and keep their team in
good condition. There is some differ
ence in horses but there is an equal
difference in the driver or person in
charge. This difference exists in a
thousand little attentions. Skill in
driving, judgment in loading, etc I
have known men to plow all day with
the haness so adjusted as to be a con
stant irritation to the team. It pays
to consider the comfort of your horse.
If a man has not time to harness his
horse properly, better not harness him
at all. It is a good plan after plowing
for a half hour in the morning for the
driver to observe his team carefully.
Walk around the horses, see i
they are feeling well, and
see that the harness is right
Don't try to do a full day's
work in the forenoon. It is not wise
for horse or man to labor to exhaus
tion. The owner of a horse seldom in
creases his chances of selling a horse
by being able to tell of frequent severe
day's work or long drives. A horse is
generally preferred with less experi
ence in that line. It is cruel after a
team has done its best in a vain effort
to pull a load to pull them again with
out giving them some new advantage.
A man who has lifted all that he possi
bly can without results, seldom repeats
the operation until the conditions are 1
changed. Don't ask your team to do
it. There are men who hardly ever
get through a season without a runa
away. I feel safe in saying that 95 per
cent of such experiences are the result
of carelessness. The time to stop a
runaway team is before they start. A
good horseman never forgets his horse.
He is vigilant, alert and is never sur
prised. He discovers causes of fright
before his horse does, and prepares for
or avoids them. Again, the horses up
on certain farms are invariably un
ruly. This also is due to the careless
ness or bad judgment of the owner.
The habit is frequently formed from
transferring colts from one field to an
other. More especially -if males are
separated. It is sometimes necessary
or convenient to turn out a horse that
is used daily with colts or idle horses.
When taking out a horse to use, and
those remaining manifest great un
easiness or desire to follow, I have al
ways taken the whole party to the
barn, returning them to the field after
ward. It takes time, but prevents
the formation of a vexatious habit. 1
have handled horses constantly for
twenty-five years, and can say that I
never reared or trained a colt that was
cither unruly, balky or ran away
while I owned him. I never purchased
and trained a colt that balked or ran
away while in my possession. In all
of that time, and in handling all sorts
of horses, we have never had a run
away. Russia has a well-appointed system
of veterinary service. The general di
rection is commuted to a special com
mission of competent officials ap
pointed by the minister of the interior,
one member from each of the adminis
trative departments, with the presi
dent of the sanitary council at the
head. (I) The duties of the commis

Cook slowly for four hours, then add

half a dozen cloves stuck into it, one-
half a small carrot, parsley and three
stalks of celery, and cook for another
hour, by which time the stock will
have been rcduc3d by boiling to two
quarts. Strain into a large bowl and
the following day remove the fat
which will have accumulated on top;
take oui the jellied stock, avoiding
the settings which will do for some

and strain through a fine strainer.

Sccilins to Grass.
The recent snow came at exactly the
right time for farmers having clover
to seed; at least for those that know
what an excellent plan it is to sow
clover seed upon the last snow in
spring. A good deal has been written
upon this subject, yet there arc proba
bly but few who have tried the plan
as a result of their reading. Last
spring the writer sowed clover on snow
and a fine catch resulted, and it was
evident that the melting snow carried
the seeds with it into the interstices of
the soil, where it would be covered
later on as the soil dried and disin
tegrated. It is perhaps poor policy to
sow clover upon snow overlying such
land as can be conveniently and thor
oughly worked for grass seed or grain
early in the spring, but for all other
fields needing clover seed, the "snow
seeding"' may be beneficially adopted.
For instance where pastures and
meadows have run out of clover, and
yet are to be mowed and pastured,
there is doubtless no better way of ob
taining a catch than to sow clovcrJ
seed upon the snow. This is a
better plan than to sow early
upon the bare surface, no mat
ter how thoroughly the latter may
be harrowed afterward, and for land
that could not possibly be harrowed
there is, of course, no other way of
securing a clover cat:h. When the
young clover plants sprout and there
is a tendency to dry or throw out of
the ground, some farmers believe in
giving the field a light rolling and this
wc think is a good plan if practical
when the soil is not too moist. Some
very successful grass growers now
seed to timothy grass in fall and put
the clover seed on in spring or on the
last snow, and elaim that no other
plan gives such good results. Rut for
the general seeding of laud to grass
with a spring seeded crop of grain we
have come to the conclusion that the
old-fashioned plan of seeding both
timothy and clover seed at the same
time immediately after the grain is in
is the best. A eonimon error, how
ever, is to seed to grass on corn stalk
ground upon which the oat crop has
been merely cultivated in, for in such
cases the crop comes up on rough
land and makes a meadow
or pasture that is both an eyesore and
a trouble to the owner, unless, as is
often the case, he has always been ac
customed to such fields and knows no
better. (Jrass, of all crops, should
have the best prepared and most level

seed lied, and when such a seed
the crop comes up evenly,
makes a paying stand, and is ever j
afterward a thing of beauty to look at i
and a p!easure to mow with a machine
that on the corn stalk land would have I
well nigh jolted itself and owner to '
pieces in a single season.
Speaking of set ding grass leads ur,
to suggest that far more clover seed
should enter into the common mixture
used for meadow and pasture. At
least twelve pounds of clover seed per
acre should be used, as this amount is
needed to make up for the percentage
of barren seed in most samples and to
insure a stand mat will prove beneu-
cial to the field as well as to the stock ,
it ca-ries. A little clover is liked bv
everv farmer, even if hordes are to be
fed upon the hay he harvests: but far
more clover could be well cared
for in a timothy crop by
all 1 aving any clafs of cattle to feed.
Clean timothy hnj- is no doubt a line
feed for horse.-, if cut and cured at the
right time; but so U mixed clover and
timothy if cut an I cured with equal
care and intelligence and the latter
will not cause heaves or other troubles
quicker than will dusty timothy hay.
for pastures we should use far mcie
varieties of grasses than we do at
present, and doubtless it will not be
long before, as in rcat ISritain, a foot
of pasture contains numbers of dif
crent gra-ses, as for instance the
poas, sweet vernal grass, some of
the bromes, several clover.-, and at
i least one of the rye grasses. In En-
rope every seedsman has made a study
of the gras question and by experi
ence has found a s-ui table mixture for
any desired purpose fur different soil,
md it would surclj' be an easy matter
for every farmer to find oat by similar
met'-ods the mixture that would bc-T
suit his land and requirements. The
subject of gra-s growing is an im
portant one and deserves discussion
at the hands of our readers. We shall
be glad to hear from any of them that
have experience or ideas to give.

An inquiry as to the cause of Dick's a

said he; "that animal was put on the

one, full of life and ambition, and when
he first went into harness it took two
good men to hold him down before the

JQ'verv farmer, say3 the Country
Gentleman, has noticed that about the
tinno of wheat harvest, if the fowls are
allowed the run of the fields nnd barn
yards, there is a material increase in the
egg supply. I think tho second fact is
tho natural reailt of the first. I have
fed corn, oats, barley, buckwheat, flax,
and sunflower seods, and have found
nothing eqr.al to -arholo wheat as food
for fowls. Foryoiuig chicks it seems
especially adapted. After two or three
days of feetling on soft food the young
chickens will pick up tho wholo wheat
quite greedily, and will ihrivo on it as
on nothing else. Growing chickens
have a Jargo demand for lime, and es
pecially bono material, and this is more
nearly supplied in whole wheat than in
any other giain. If wheat were $2 per
bushel it would still be the cheap
est food for young chickp. Farmers

A l'lea for Tobacco-Smoking.
Smoking is essentially an American
taste. It is in harmony with our climate
and onr habits. It resists tho blues and
it stimulates reflection. We pride onr
aelves on our reflective qualities. These
qualities can never recoive justice so
complete as at the hands of the tobacco
smoker. Smoking collects the thoughts,
combines ideas, qnietly lays down
phrases in logical order. It invests
poetic fancy with a great halo, and in
cnbates invention in its genial exhala
tions. As the magicians of old burnt
herbs, and produced from their vapors
an imago of magic beauty, a scene of
the inturc, or tho eidolon of a distant
present, so does this necromantic herb
of modern days, with its weird powers,
support the exertions of genins, evolve
thoughts from eminent minds, and si
lently co-operate in great labors. From
all times smoking is said to have existed
in one shape or another. On the carv
ings from Nineveh a man may be seen
enjoying an instrument very like a pipe ;
and the prevalence of the practice in
different regions forbids the assumption
of a common origin. Narcotics aro sec
ondary necessities of human life. To
bacco, opium or betel nut supply this
want to the different races of man.
Civilization adheres to tobacco as a
middle course. Among its uses, smoking
is the most creditable. Snnffinsr or

from physicians in Rochester, New York,
Philadelphia, Jersey City, Bingliamton, and
received no benefit from them. In fact
I have paid- out hundreds of dollars to the
