Made to Pay One of our coteraporaries lately re- commended farmers to be more econom ical ; to buy no more broadcloths for themselves, no more Bilks for their wives, no more ribbons for their daughters. We join in recommending economy j but by economy we mean good management the making the most of what we have ; not parsimony, the denying the comforts or elegancies of life. The department in which, we venture to say, with all due submission, more economy might be exercised, or in other words, better management might be displayed is the breeding and rearing of fowls, nnd with this object in view, we subjoin some advice from a book published in London a short time ago. It is entitled, " How the French Make Fowls Pay," and is an answer to the question how France, the land of omelettes and fricassees, could export to England every year Bix hundred mil lions of eggs and thousands of tons of poultry. The seoret of the success of the French lies in early hatching, good feeding, and early k...

V -- Storing Root for Wlntert Thousands of bushels of potatoes arid other roots are lost annually through insufficient protection from the cold. It is not necessary to store roots in a cellar. A well coverod pit out of doors 'will keep them fresher and with equal safety. Only the small quantity of potatoes and other roots which a family needs during extreme cold weather should be kept in cellars under dwelling houses. There is some de gree of fermentation and decay in large bodies of any kind of vegetables, even in cold weather, and the effluvia from these is a cause of fevers and other dis eases often prevalent in some houses every winter and spring. But to keep potatoes in pits requires some judgment and understanding of the business. Last winter ground exposed to the weather froze in some plnces four foet deep, and this extreme cold was a source of great loss. Of course no farmer would think of burying potatoes four feet deep, and even if ho did they might bo frozen, as the heap ...
