Farm, Garden and llonseholfl. An Ice Home tor Five Dollars. A neighbor of mine, sny a corres pondent, has an inclor"ire of about six feet square in t,b.o clear, and six feet high. The rralls are formed of old refuse timbers thrown closely together, with no regard to form or comeliness. The roof is made of hemlock boards. The entire cost of the building did not exceed five dollars, and, practically con sidered, it is a success not ambitious of containing thirty-five loads of ice, but simply live loads. Two years this little, unpretentious house has been wsod for ice, and never yet dis honored a draft upon its crystal de posit. About Bix inches of sawdust was spread upon the ground floor, and in packiug.a space of about nine inches was left between the ioe and the walls of the building for sawdust, and about nine inches of sawdust was spread upon the top of the ice, and the thing was fixed. The three main principles ob served here will always insure a supply of ice, viz : good ventila...

Farm, Garden and Household. Cleaning Stubble Land. The farmer who has grown wheat, or barley, or oats this year, and is not soeded down, and which is not to be sown with any other crop nntil next spring, has an opportunity of cleaning his land, that shonld on no acoonnt be negleoted. The English farmers sel dom seed down their land with wheat, After the wheat is havested, they har row the land, or tear it to pieces with a throe or four horse cultivator or "grub ber." This pulls out the roots of quack grass, and starts the seeds of other weeds. The field is afterwards plowed, when, of course, all the young weed plants are destroyed. The grubber is kept at work as ofen as necessary, to clean and mellow the land. The next spring, this land is sown to turnips or mangels, or, on heavy land, to beans or barley. It is said that this autumn cleaning of Btubble land by the free tise of the grubber, especially when operated by the all-powerful steam en gine, is one of the agricultural improve...

Farm, Garden and Household. ! Hlnti about Work. Plowing for winter wheat should be finished early in September. Two plow ings of an oat or barley stubble should be given, that the scattered grain whioh has sprouted may be killed. It is a mistake to suppose that oats are a pro tection to the young wheat. On the contrary they are weeds, and rob the young wheat plants of their nourish ment to their injury. A cloddy surface will do no harm if there is a mellow bed below for the seed. In good time these clods will crumble down, and unt.il then they are a protection to the plant, A few loads of good well-rotted ma nure harrowed into the surface, or cov ered with a very light furrow at the sec ond plowing, is better than twice as many loads spread in the winter as a top-dressing. Strong plants at the start are what wo want. If there is food at hand, the roots from the sprouting seed find it and make a rapid growth, when growth is safety. Strong fibrous roots spreading far into the soil, ar...

If yon Lave bad a good deal of experience, and know what you waut, make a chest and select the tools yourself, but if you get one whioh some one else has furnished, you may, to be sure, get a good set of tools, but there will be many for which you will find but little use. Even reg ular meohanics have different ways of using tools, and an ingenious amateur will often make shift to do without cer tain tools, which a carpenter or blaok Bmith consider indispensable.
