A discussion followed on the best breed of cows for luil loi'-itiakiiio. An extract was read from a Pennsylvania agricultural paper, which stated that a short-horn cow in Chester county made twenty-one pounds of butter in a week. Admitting that statement to be correct, it was tho general opinion of members that it was better to depend more upon certain well developed points which all good cows must possess, than upon fancy breeds. The president insisted that they must also havo correct escutcheon marks, according to "Uuenon," to be good milkers. lt ...

WKDNKSDAY KVIW, JINK 20,1872. . .. Scientific .Note*. A fungus which grows on the calcareous rocks of Florida is said to possess narcotic properties, and lo be used by tho natives to some extent as a substitute for tobacco. (Dr. Isidor Wells.) Woman's milk, when the food is in* snflicient, shows a diminution in the butter, casein, sugar, and salts, while tho albumen is increased. The change occurs in four or five days. (E. Dccaisnc.) The decay of wood is generally supposed to be caused by the decomposition of the albumen contained in the sap, and from this decomposition results a poison which, being in juxtaposition with the heart, speedily induces decay in it. Another cause is the slow oxidation, which attacks both the sap and the heart, but particularly the latter. Uy impregnating the wood with creosote both of these causes of decay are avoided, and the iron bolts and spikes employed in joining parts together arc likewise preserved. Professor Waklyn states that filtration of water...

When to cut Wheat. i . Th u _s_! --"ft! among farmers is, to let wheat stand, before it is cut, until the straw is entirely changed in color from green to yellow and the grain has become hard and nearly or quito dry. Numerous experiments have been made in this country, but more particularly in England to determine at what period of ripeness it is best to cut wheat, having in view the greatest yield of grain and it of the best quality It is Well known to those who have investigated the subject, that the ripening of tho seed consist* entirely of chemical processes which we cannot here attempt to explain that are of importance to bo considered in order to mnke the most of the crop after it has been grown. The immature grain of wheat, in its early stage, is found to be tilled with a milky fluid, which gradually changes into consistence from this milky state to one more firm and solid. These experiments havo been instituted to determine with accuracy at what period of this change the gra...
