Any farmer who wil ! sow on the same day , side by side , in the same field , two varieties of wheat , one earlier than the other , may find the earlier variety ripe , with clean , bright straws , from six to ten days before the other , the berries plump and bright . He may find the later variety with the leaves and straw covered with red or brown rust , the Straw so brittle arid rotten as to make it difficult to bind the sheaves , and the berry containing but little flour , and that , in grinding , will be found to be of very inferior quality . In brief , the crop is in a good measure lost . Theso . are the facts . ,,., The general impresslonr amongst - farmers is that the rust is some injurious substance which is precipitated upon the field from the * atmosphere .

HORTIfnJLTUlUL [Newspaper Article] — Western Rural — 18 July 1868
HORTIfnJLTUlUL ; ..- . / Ili Qrey Vine in Inly . . ; Grape vines generally push ont a large quantity of wood in July , especially If they are moistened by frequent showers . Great luxuriance of foliage without the most ample ventilation encourages mildew , aud on this account , If the canes Jtave thrown out numerous laterals and formed , heavy masses of foliage , the pruning knife must be brought into requisition . But it is much better to rub off the shoots , or pinch them back , than to allow them to waste the energies of the vine in attaining a large size . Overhanging shade Is . detrimental to the grape vine , for it not only prevents the sun from reaching the foliage , but also causes a drip in wet weather , which has a very bad effect .. . . , . Vines should be examined frequently during the Summer , as desirable shoots should be encouraged and trained and supernumerary ones removed . Some culturists contract the growth or the vines , Instead of allowing them . to extend and c...

I We are confident that anything that can minister to the health and comfort of those little household pets , the canary , goldfinch , etc ., which enliven and adorn so many rooms , will be of interest to most of our lady readers , at least . The most prolific source of disease in the case of most of these tiny pets is undoubtedly the presence of parasites , concerning which , an exchange - gives substantially the following : Many people have observed a bird In a state of excitement and anxiety , pecking at himself continually , his feathers standing all wrong . In vain ls his food changed , and in vain is another saucer of clean water always kept ln bis cage , and all that kindness can suggest for the little prisoner done , but still all is of no use ; he Is no better , because the cause of his wretchedness has not been found out .
