The great obstacle in tlie way of extensive operations is the preparations that are , cf necessity , constantly being made . As we stated in former articles under this head , we did not secure the farm for experimental purposes until too late to carry out the objects desired this year , nnd the preparations incidental to all our undertakings do not allow na to fully conduct such experiments as we had contemplated . In order that operations on the farm may be more espeditlous , and better attention given , the publisher and proprietor of the FABM , FIELD AND FIRES...

Agricultural Chemistry THE VALUE OF CLOVER . Why does clover enrich the soil on which it is grown , and leave it in better condition when plowed under than previous to sowing ? is an oft repeated inquiry . It is claimed that tbe thick mass of foliage possessed by clover enables It to appropriate from the atmosphere a large proportion of nitrogen , of which the greatest plenty exists all around us , but no chemist has yet been able to verify this as a fact , for , strange to say , although clover contains a large proportion of nitrogen , it is not distributed in the body of the plant plentifully , as is demonstrated by an analysis of the ash of stems and leaves , but the roots are more plentifully supplied than any other portion . As it would be inconsistent to suppose that the matter in the roots is not forwarded to the other portions of tbe plant , yet the fact that the greater part seems to come from below , imparts a doubt as to the appropriation of nitrogen in whole directly fro...

THE GARDEN . [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Fireside — 1 September 1884

THE GARDEN . Dividing Boots . All plants that may be propagated by roots should be divided and set out this month . The herbs and rhubarb should be set out along the borders of the walkways , and other plants that come from subdivision of roots may be placed in locations out of the way of the regular garden crops . ———— - _ — _ ———- Late Badishes . If radishes are sown this month they wiU make sufficient growth for late use , and If preferred may be stored away in a cool cellar for winter . If not allowed to remain in the ground too long they will be crisp aud tender during the cold months . All that is necessary before using them is to allow them to remain in water for an hour . The White and Black Spanish varieties are best for late crops . The Turnip Crop , The rutabagas will continue to grow until frost , and they should be given a good , clean working this month , not so much because they need it , but in order to kill the weeds that are continually springing up .

THE ORCHARD [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Fireside — 1 September 1884

THE ORCHARD Baspbemes . September is one of the best months in the year for setting out raspberry plants , for tho reason that it allows of an excellent opportunity for the plants to become well rooted before the ground is frozen . The location should be well prepared by deep plowing , and a handful of plaster should be sprinkled around each plant . Set out in rows wide enough apart to admit of easy cultivation , and let the plants be far enough apart to admit of the hoe being used between them , as they should be kept free from grass and weeds . Harvesting and Preserving Grapes . A correspondent having written us in regard to M-e methods employed for keeping grapes during the winter , we should suggest the method given by Prof . Maynard , written to the New England Homestead , in which he states that the best temperature for keeping grapes is about 38 ° , with an abundance of light and an atmosphere with just moisture enough to keep the berries from wilting . If a large amount are ...

The Value of Good Stock . The value of good stock does not depend upon the breed simply because it has a special classificatien , but upon the application of the breed to the special purposes for which it was created . And when the venture has been made , and the decision rendered that the breed must perform certain service , there will be no intermediate point at which to stop , for , in order to realize from the venture the best should be put to service . There are prize animals noted for superior excellence , not only as producers , but in their power to transmit their good qualities to . their descendants . Such animals , though not within the reach of . all , may be made the models by which we may mould our plans , and endeavor to emulate their superior qualities in our ewn stock . Although there are some cows that have yielded 500 pounds of butter in one year , yet they are not numerous , and but few farmers can possess such , but because a farmer cannot possess a 500-pound-bu...

It Beats All . For a poultry paper to attain a paid subscription list of over 19 , 500 subscribers in the short period of four months shows the energy and enterprise of its publisher . We make known our number every month , sworn to and before a notary , and we will show our books to anyone who so desires , as we are not ashamed of them , nor have we any secrets . We hold to our prediction that iu one year from the beginning of its existence It will have a larger circulation than that of other journals of its kind , if it has not that already . Fifty cents a year is low for a paper like THE POULTRY KEEPER . Baising Young Chickens . Inexperienced poultry keepers are apt to make a mistake in raising poultry by neglecting those a month old and upward for the younger broods . The reason of this is not difficult to realize , for it is thought that the birds , having got so far in safety , are able to look after themselves and do not require the same amount of attention as the younger one...

A Bemarkable Two-Year-Old Heifer . Another member of the alreadv famous Aaggie family has stepped to the front , with a record for one day , as a two-year-old , of 67 lbs . 6 oz ., which , we _ believe , surpasses any two-year-old records for one day ever published . This remarkable heifer is Aaggie Constance ( H . H . B . No . 2 , 629 ) , imported by Messrs . Smiths & Powell , Syracuse , JN . Y „ when a calf in Sept ., 1882 . Her sire was De Ruiter ( N . H .

De Ruiter is also the sire of Aaggie Clara ( H . H .

Genius Can Never Despise Labor . Fortune has rarely condescended to be the companion of genius ; perhaps because genius and application so seldom go hand in hand . The wealth which has been amassed during the present century by so many novelists and historians is not due alone to fitful wit or humor , but ls the well earned result ot solid hard work . Those who esteem book making an easy road to fortune , have but little idea of the arduous labor involved in the construction of a book of even the simplest composition . A book may be read with ease in a few hours that has required months to compose , revise and complete . Brain workers , of all people , should be the most methodical in their habits , but many of them are tireless workers , eternally composing . Everything about them they adapt involuntarily to their purpose , and the man of letters is generally well supplied with note books , where he may jot down a swiftly passing thought , or striking incident he dare not trust to ...

UP WITH THE BREEZE . BY DALE . Up with the breeze * the birds and the bees . I heard a boy sing in the morn ; And his hoe kept time with , the merry rhyme . Ashe cheerfully hoed his corn . Down went the iceeds and the noxious seeds . And up went the emerald corn ; And T looked with delight at the gladsome sight . The work of the early morn . The broad areen leaves turned to golden sheaves . And the field of beautiful corn Was gathered and sold ; thus turned into gold—The work of the early morn . Then up with the breeze , the birds and the bees . Jf you wish to grow wealthy and wise ; And merrily sing , like birds in the spring . While your work as merrily jlies . The poor sleepy head , who lingers in bed , Will have more SOITOWS than joys ; And when he groxos old , iclll be h ungry and cold , So keep * wide awake , my boys .

From an Autobiography . LEAF VI . [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Fireside — 1 September 1884

From an Autobiography . LEAF VI . One dark , dreary night I was shut into the glory room by mistake . After a somewhat protracted nap , a low , rumbling thunder I awoke me . Deep darkness enveloped tho room , a rising wind rustled among the climbing vines outside . Evidently a storm was at hand . In a moment the ridge of hair upon my back stood erect . Among the whispering sounds of coming tempest I detected a cat-like tread upon the grass . I gave a quick , low growl , and something flung in at the open window fell just at my feet . Twasabit of tender meat , rubbed carefully with strychnine . Accustomed to broiled steak , I snuffed at it disdainfully , and , as tho daring intruder pushed the window up from the bottom , unclasped the top catch of the blinds , and flung them wide open , I barked long , loud and lustily , waking shrill echoes through the room . But would they hear me above the rolling thunder , with all the doors between us closed ? Evidently , he thought not , for he...

Over the Mountain and Over the Moor . BV NANNIE E . TAYLOR . It was just after breakfast . Flossy sat on tho old gray shawl , spread out upon the grass under the aged apple tree . She was curling a dandelion stem and thinking . It was late in the season for dandelions , but this one had grown up in the shade . Flossy had discovered its yellow face , peeping out from behind the great mossy rock , down in the shady comer of the yard ; for Flossy lived in Massachusetts , where rocks are nearly as plentiful as blackberries . She curled it close to tho blossom , then shook it out into a long , graceful curl , and tucked it behind her ear with a satisfied nod , singing softly , Little lad , little lad , where were you bornr Far off in Lancashire , under a thorn . Where they sup buttermilk from a ram s horn ; Andpunwkin scooped , with a yellow rim . Is the bonny bowl they breakfast in . Flossy s face grew thoughtful .

Think of a Number . Tell your neighbor to think of any number he likes , but not to tell you what it is . Tell him then to double It ; when he has done that , let him add an even number to it , which you yourself must give him ; after doing this he must halve the whole ; then from what is left take away the number he first thought of . When he shall arrive so far , if his calculations have all been made correctly , you will be able to give him the exact remainder , which will simply be the half of the even number you told him to add to his own .

Beneath the Waves . [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Fireside — 1 September 1884

Beneath the Waves . The far famed coral reefs of the South Seas are varied In their wondrous and picturesque beauty . Almost every diver makes new discoveries , and those who have once found their way to those fairy grottoes are so fascinated that they will go again and again , despite the fatigues and perils that attend them at every step . In those seas the corals are not all white , but delicate rose tints , bright crimson , royal purple , forest green , heavens own blue , and the ripe gold of the summer sunset , all mingle their various hues in the adornment of those matchless creations , and even the pure , virgin white sometimes exhibits the faintest possible rose tinge , a just perceptible blush of its own conscious loveliness . Some divers have roamed through spacious halls and far reaching grottoes , and others tell us of fairy bowers , beautiful as trysting place of sea nymph or mermaid , and again of what would seem a temple in ruins , with its domes and spires still stan...
