jEtoyfoff mi &amp; kttt \ . t $ . MISS FOLJAMBES LAST . Miss Foljambe was eccentric . Every one knew lt , and every one said itj-very commonly adding , with an envious sigh : Well , she can afford IM For one of Hiss Fotyambes eccentric habits was inheriting fortunes , and she had accumulated quite a pretty assortment . Her father left her one , her grandmother leit her one , her maiden aunt , her only sister , her consin in India , and finally the grocer round the corner , an old bachelor who had supplied the Foljambes -with bread staffs and butter for a generation , and who also affected eccentricity after his degree . All these had in dying bequeathed their possessions to their beloved daughter , granddaughter , niece , sister , cousin , or patron , Miss Winifred Foljambe , in token of —various sentiments , not so important in themselves as in their results . So Miss Winifred lived in the great oldfashioned family mansion , where she had been born some seven-and . twenty y...

AGRICULTURAL [Newspaper Article] — Western Rural — 2 May 1868
AGRICULTURAL . Hotes and Suggestion , for Hay , There Is generally a great deal of very important work to be done on the farm in May . Sometimes the weather in April is favorable lor tilling the soil , and sometimes the reverse is the case . It is better to wait for a month for fine weather and a favorable condition of the soil , than to plow or sow when the weather Is cold and the soil saturated with water . * The farmer who keeps the greater part of his land in well-manured pasture or meadow , and the balance in the best kind of tillage , will always have thrifty stock and productive crops . When grass land is of the best quality , a large , quantity of live stock can be supported in Summer and Winter , a large quantity of excellent manure will be made , and . the whole farm may be manured at intervals , by establishing a regular rotation of crops . . *• May is generally a hard month on stock for they are turned out to shift for themselves on the pasture before there is a good bit...

AGRICULTURAL [Newspaper Article] — Western Rural — 2 May 1868
AGRICULTURAL Selections anil Condensations ., Painting Buildings and Farm Implements . Farmers should learn how to paint their . buildings , tools and farm Implements in a neat and workmanlike manner ; and they may just as well do all their own painting and varnishing as to pay some painter twice as much as It is actually ; worth to perform a given job . In the Spring ; and during warm days in Winter , and At any other season of the year , if a f-rmerhas only a little instruction in preparing paint and putting It on , he , and those ln bis employ , may do all the painting , when they could do nothing else which could be of much account . Farmers are quite apt to think that it requires a vast amount of wisdom and skill to prepare paint and put iton , and some painters like to make them think that it is far better to play a very exorbitant price to a painter to have an implement painted than to undertake to do It themselves , and then fall . But there Is no danger of falling ln ordina...

HORTICULTURAL [Newspaper Article] — Western Rural — 2 May 1868
HORTICULTURAL Notes and Suggestions for May . • THE OBCHABD—PLANTING FBOTT TBEES . The planting of new orchards and the renovating and enlarging of old ones are the most important horticultural operations in May . It is too late now to make any suggestions about the preparation of the soil . We have already urged the necessity of thorough drainage and deep , tillage , ln fact the soil should be so thoroughly tilled that the holes for the trees should embrace the whole extent of the orchard , the roots having liberty to extend like net-work through the well-prepared soil . It is better not to plant trees at all than to set them out where the roots will be confined in narrow holes , half-filled , during a great part of the year , with stagnant water . . PRUNING . &gt; .: ¦ • :: ¦ The operation of pruning fruit trees is too much neglected ; sometimes it is deferred until the heads have become a compact mass of branches , shutting out the sun by their foliage , and affording a s...

Domestic ( gflmrjmt -Bdlted by a Practical Honaekeeper . Labor-saving Appliances for Women . As a reader of THE WESTERN RURAL , I have been somewhat amused , not to say edified , by the remarks of Greenfield on home-made clothing . I confess to a little curiosity , as to who Greenfield may be—whether he is one of the lords of creation , or one of the old grandmothers . I must say I think htm ( or her ) a good way behind the time . Now , Greenfield , dont look horrified . I will just tell you that I am a farmer s wife , and was a farmer s daughter ; have always lived on a farm , and was taught to spin . My mother was a weaver ; first , with the old hand loom , then with the fly shuttle . My earliest memories are associated with the cllck-et-te clack of the old loom , and the quill-wheel was my constant companion . I live In a country where THE WESTEBN RURAL IS taken and read quite extensively . I would readily agree with Greenfield , as to the comfort , convenience , and necessity of...

Wool Buyers and Wool Growers . [Newspaper Article] — Western Rural — 2 May 1868
Wool Buyers and Wool Growers . Last year a Michigan farmer—using the signature Wool-Grower —by which a prominent sheep-breeder of Illinois . is widely known—sent us a communication in which he stated that there had been a loss of from 10 , 000 to 20 , 000 sheep in Michigan , the year previous , ( 1866 ) , from too early shearing . [ This statement was hardly fair , perhaps , as the principal loss was caused by an unusually severe storm about the middle of June . ] He also objected strongly to the conduct of buyers in his vicinity , and stated that for two years he had shipped most of his wool to Boston , and had made money by so doing . With these statements were also some of a class , the acting on which by buyers and sellers , has been largel y instrumental in bringing about the differences and bad feelings so common . The effect of these statements was that sheen should not be shorn until warm days had started the grease , that the heavier the fleeces , the more money could be ma...

:. - ¦ . - . - • Long Wooled Sheep . There is , j ust how , decidedly increased attention to long-wooled sheep . Two or three years ago some of our friends felt that we were not good friends of the Merino , because we Insisted that , in some localities and circumstances , the long-wool-ed sheep were the most profitable , and endeavored to encourage their more general Introduction . Now , a caution maybe needed on the other side . We have repeatedly advised our readers to be cautious as to making decided changes and engaging largely in a new branch of business . We haye no doubt that many farmers will purchase Cotswolds or Lelcesters and will find themselves disappointed in their expectations of profit . These sheep cannot be kept profitably in large flocks , and with scanty food and little care . This fact is very well expressed by a correspondent of the Country Gentleman , In the following paragraph : The tendency of our farmers is now full strong enough to run into long-wooled she...
