HORTICULTURAL [Newspaper Article] — Western Rural — 28 March 1868

HORTICULTURAL Best Varieties of Frnit for an Orchard . What varieties of standard pears , apples , and peaches would you recommend for raising in this locality ( Van Buren Co ., Mich . ) expressly for market ? How would the Baldwin , Red Astrachan , Rhode Island , Greening , and Maiden s Blush do ? and what shonld be the proportion of each In an orchard of 500 trees ? And , for pears , what do you think of the Bartlett , Flemish Beauty , Fall Butter , etc . ? Any hints will be acceptable to HAMILTON . —As you are about to embark in fruit culture , the flrst thing to be done ls to prepare the soil properly .

§ mt $ tk @ cot . m % Edited by a Practical Housekeeper . working np Wool at Home . If we have persuaded some pf pur young country women who are preparing for ; or have just commenced , housekeeping , that they can profitably learn the good old art of spinning , perhaps some hints on tbe above subject may be of use to the beginner . In the first place , let the sheep be sheared as early as will answer , so that you can have most of the long Summer days before you . If the sheep have been well brookwashed , the labor of cleansing the wool will be less . One of our methods of cleansing has been to soak the wool first a while in strong salt and water , quite hot , afterwards washing in several waters . Sometimes we have used a little soap . The card of one of our woolen mills gives this recipe : —To 25 pounds of wool take 2 pounds of common salt , 2 pounds of sal-soda , to 20 gallons of soft water , warm , but not hot ; add wool , and let It remain in the kettle about fifteen minutes ,...

¦ pRIVATK FAMILIES who aim to raise vegc- •*• tables of the best quality only , need not to be reminded Ag * do not grow on thistles , nor that from good seed alone can good vegetables be obtained . Seeds may , indeed , grow freely enough , but unless thoy prove good in every respect , It were better they had not grown at all . The seeds offered by us being mainly the produce of Bloorasdale , raised under onr own personal supervision , with the aid of years of practical experience , we arc enabled to speak with entire confidence as to their quality , and of tho reasonable probability of satisfactory results . DarWe haVc but few Novelties to offer . Our experience ( obtained at some cost ) ls that out of the multitude of that class of vegetables advertised for sale , In most cases tho good arc not new . and tho new aro not good—substantial , staple , well-known sorts are In tho main tho most reliable .

-Biohigan Agricultural Convention—Dis -; otLSsion on Drainage . [Newspaper Article] — Western Rural — 28 March 1868

-Biohigan Agricultural Convention—Dis- ; otLSsion on Drainage . The general subject of drainage was introduced by Mr . It . F . Johnstone , who said drainage would in future form one of the most Important operations of agriculture . Among tbe methods of getting off the water were the flow from the surface , evaporation , and flowing through thc soil . When water lies on the surface it renders soil too cold ; when it penetrates through the soil it enriches and v . arms it . The warm vains ol Spring warm the soil and promote vegetation . If the warmth cau be obtained by drainage , ten days sooner than lt could otherwise , the crops are earlier , and better protected against frost . Two years ago much of thc wheat crop was lost by a frost In Spring , the rain falling freezing on the surface and smothering the wheat . If tile drainage had been general this would not have occurred . Tile-draining is now characteristic of all the best farming In tbe world In Great Britain , the sum of £ 2...

LETTERS , EVaCIRIES , ANSWERS , Ett . Various Recipes . —Lice on stock make a short stoy with me . For sixty years I havo resorted to no other remedy than dry ashes or finely slacked lime—lime is the best . Keep your hogs , neat cattle , horses , fowls , and yourself and children dry and there Is no danger . For fowls , put it In the nest ; for hogs , throw it where they wallow ; and for cattle and horses , rub it into the hair , so that It comes to the skin , then , with a currycomb and brush , clean them off . It may suffice to mix ashes or lime with the bedding for stock and horses . I havo had cattle exposed to moist snows and rain without any detriment , but prefer keeping them dry . I think it preferable to corrosive sublimate , and tobacco ointment , etc . A remedy for stretches in sheep : —Mix soot and a little flour of hops with salt occasionally .
