Va.: THURSDAY -JULY 19, 1883 THE comments so frequently made by us, upon the faHure of our farmers to cull their potatoes and otherwise prepare them properly for market, have been so much disregarded this season that we had almost concluded to give the matter no further attention. Reports which have reached us, however, of late from the very best commission men in cities to which our largest shipments are made, show up the folly of our i>eoplc in such glaring colors "in the preparation of their stuff for market," that we * are constrained to bring the matter again to their attention. The extent of that folly can be inferred from the following clipping from one of those reports: The Eastern shore potatoes are running very poor, small and not well sorted. Some lots are shipped just as they came out of the ground, all sizes from the s-ize of a marble up to fair cooking stock. This stuf...

AV hen animals have fever they invariably diet themselves, take plenty of rest, keep in the shade and in cool places, drink water, and even plunge into it several times a day, when they can. If a dog loses his appetite, lie eats dandelions, which serve him as an emetic. Cats oat grass for the same reason. Sheep and cows always look for certain herbs when they feel sick.

Farming as a ■ Farming certainly has its re verses and drawbacks, but amid them all the farmer may take hope ihat after all he. is secure. The soil dow not go into bankruptcy, and always pays its owner according in the efforts made to improve and fructify it. Nor does the farmer embexzle anything. As a debtor it can be trusted, as a clerk it can be relied upon. This is more than many business men can say. The soil ftlways pays something, and if the laws of nature are not violated by the owner, the farmer will not try to put into operation the absurd notions of science, falsely so called". The farm does not stop before the work i« done, though its owner sometimes does. Ais a business, then, farming is safe; it can be depended upon. It will give the farmer a good living for himself and family, and something over for money. No one living can fare better than the farmer. Me has the choice of everything that is made aud a boundless variety to suit all seasons and all whims of appetite. T...

What a Farmer Needs. Oue of our exchanges says: "A farmer needs hie vartvtiou just as Winch an any man of business needs one. A week's run to town after the busy seasou is over will do him a world of good. And they need to visit other farmers, to learn, if possible, easier or better methods of farming or of living. They need to attend fanners' conventions and organizations to gain new ideas—something to broaden or enlarge their views of life. People who always stay at home are sure to seek dark aides and shadows of their own lives. They need to learn and realize that storms and droughts and thunders and showers and freshets visit other farms beside their own; that weeds and insects thrive la all degrees of longitude; that flies aud dirt accumulate and annoy other households besides tho the ones that they preside over. In abort, they need to learn how other people live. Could farmers (manage so as to be confined less to their farms* ooold they work more in partnership, as do men in o...

It would therefore appear that the leaves of the castor-oil give out an essential oil, or some toxic principle which possesses very strong insecticide qualities. Castor oil plants are iu Fiance very much used as ornamental plants in rooms, as they may resist very well varia tions of atmosphere and tempera tire. As the castor-oil plant u very much grown and cultivated in all gardens, the Journal <V Agriculture points that it would be worth while to try decoctions of the leaves to destroy the green flies and other insects which in summer are so destructive to plants and fruit trees.
