JSf nl. COCK-CBOVV. Corxs-DoonutDo ! WW in; ii the mom. That yoo sound tout clarion-born T Not a streak of tight in the east, Nor the faintest rav Of dappled gray ' yet to be seen, —not the leant. Three o'clock !—that ia all; And still you sound your call To all within the house to wake, And into their hearts their bunion* lake. Before ever the day is born! There ia not a sign of the dawn; The stars are burning out, ’tis true. Bat no eves see the any yet coming through; The world is fast asleep m the dart; Not so much as the sound of the watch dog ) And still this Cocka-doodlc-do! [bark Cock-H-dood!e- do ! The first rich ray of red Has fallen across the shed: And, from his perch, once more the call Of the warder that keeps watch for os all. Shrill, and clear, and high is the note From out that regal throat, Pulsing its echoes everywhere Through the frosty morning air, Down the valley clear to the mill, And away to the top of the nearest hill. The cattle get up from their long night's bed And the boards of the floor creak overheat!; The horse looks out from his darkened stall, Like a lord from the door of his castle-hall: Over the roof curb up the smoke That tells of the stir of thrifty folk; The hens on their perches crowd along. Aroused by their lord’s resounding song. And now the sun’s clear, golden ray Falls through the bark-chinks on the bay : Into the pails full many a stream Of milk, that is rich with clotted cream, Kiddles the foam in a zigzag line, As sweet as the breath of the yarded kine. Cock-a-doodle-do I There he is, on the garden gale. Crest erect, aud spirit elate : The rain*has been falling all the day Aud no eye can thread its wav To any rift or lift in the clouds That pack the concave in such crowds But chanticleer, he sees the sign, Where wisest men can read no line ; A prophet, with an instinct high. Ue keeps the secret of the sky,— A favorite child of Nature he, That knows the heart of her mystery. And at that Cock-a-doodle-do, And cheery flap of pinions, 100. The household to the windows go, In answer to the call they know The sky grows brighter, and the blue Comes forth at Cock-a-doodle-do! Cock-a-doodle-do / The rival he has overthrown Goes reeling to his roost alone : And he, the royal conqueror, With bloody ruff about his throat. Sends forth hb strong, defiant note To Chanticleers near and remote, On every farmer's broad barn-floor. No shouts from tho walls of proud old Trov Were ever given with half the joy That fills the heart of this brave bird. As he makes the news of hb victory heard. You’d think he was some baron hold. From whom the rest their tenures hold. Proclaiming, on the garden wall, His feudal watch and ward for all. Cock-a-doodle-do ! No house is Home, without that hum To sound the hours, from dawu to dawn. Before the eye rise curling smokes, That comes from fires of country folks,— A stack of roofs, —a low, wide door, — The thump of flails on a big bani-floor.— A tented field of corn hard by, About whose stacks great pumpkins lie.— Hen’s nests snug hidden in the hay, And children hunting half the day,— A garden filled with fruits and flowers, Where birds make musical the hours, — Good cheer, warm welcomes, and bright fires. That fill the wishing heart’s desires. Oh, Chanticleer ! —brave Chanticleer! Thy voice rings through all History; Outstartcd from the mystery Of Indian jungles, dark ana drear, Thy path has Tain through Greece and Rome To the door of every farmer's home; They stamped thee on their ancient coins. And offered tbeo in sacrifice Unto their heathen deities, That sprung from mythologic loins: And “Plato's thou wert, we know, Above two thousand years ago; And Peter felt hb shiunefU lie Reproved by thy shrill, chiding cry, And went out, weeping bitterly. Thy note sends every ghost to bed, Afraid to show its guilty head When the shadows of the night have sped. They set thee on the tallest spires. Above the fog of earth’s desires, A sort of lookout in the sky. Interpreter of wet and dry,* And cheering souls to victor} . Thy Cork -a-doodlc do, it rings Through winters, autumns, summer.', springs: At every hearth, in every heart, The tenderest feelings take a start; Thou mayst not be the bird of Jove,— Thou art a bird that all men love: There b no fowl that walks, the peer Of strutting, crowing Chanticleer! Weed, and How to get Hid of Them. Whatever plant# intent the farmer* ground# and are worthless a# objects of cultivation are embraced under the general name of Weeds, tn other words, all plants, however nsefdl they may be as distinct objects of attention, when scattered through a crop of other useful plants, to their In jury, may be considered dead and treated as such, aud carefnily eradicated. A sin gle weed allowed to mature may become five hundred the following season and ten thousand the year after. Weeds are propagated by a poor system of tillage, and the use of unformented manure#. The mode of eradicating weeds must depend on their duration and nature, whether their roots are perennial or die off after the plant has borne seed. Annual weeds are most easily gotten rid of. Hoed crops will destroy most of them. The seeds of annual weed# are brought to the field# in nufermeuted stable manure, whore the cattle feed on hay or straw, swallow the seeds, which pas# through them undi go#ted Seeds of annual weed# will lie dormant for a long while, when buried deep, and vegetate a# soon a# the plow brings them up again. W e pass on now tothe perennial weeds ; and the roost troublesome to n# are the different thiatle#, and the running briar — both of which inereaae and multiply to an alarming extent. There seems to be three varieties of the Thistle—the small plant that liear* a fruit about the siae of a rasp berry: the one that prows four feet high and bears a purple (lower, and theoiielhut. simply throws out large leaves, that grow and lay just os the (op of the ground, and seems to lsr no flower or seed—sometimes palled --('aiiada Thistle." The one that bean the fruit is called a". Sodom Apple ' Tile re are various receipts for getting rid at the rale of twenty bushels to the acre burning over tho fleM. and frequent mow mg. I think I Ih-plant should be allowed to .itt.dii Hourly its full growth When it has drawn largely mi the vitality of ita boiled to thro, • every particle under the surftee. W but the plow don't cover, cover with a hop If the patch issmall, spade eau Is- used (O put off the prawn ofthc emit V- as the tope show lliem 1 - -h.... again, go through the plowing m ■ “pe-ftiig |H-oepss. and ewjtinue till tbp mid > die uf autumn when you Bill In- pretty , wire to have your land Aw. : I It is most difficult to gel rid of it,,- thjstte when the ground hits hpcu worked hi hoed prop. tn pastures they are less „ I hurtful, liuuniicg briars arc as difficult to get rid of as the thistle family. Care , loee cultivation brings them, but careful cultivation will rid you of them. Of the various ways of clearing them from out fields, I may mention —burning over tho field in the early spring: putting in hoed crops for a while, following with wheat or grass; getting a good set of grass; manuring heavily with lime and frequent mowings. I would plow the ground early in the spring, (supposing I had a field infested with briars,) and very carefully prepare for corn crop, or any other hoed crop; keep the crop well worked during the sea son; hoeing and cultivating as often as the briars show themselves. Following this crop in the fall with wheat —the wheat being drilled in with a good sharp drill; the drill being very useful in tearing up what briars grow after the last corn work ing. Follow with wheat again ; preparing the ground vent nicely with good sharp implements. Drill the wheat and sow heavily with timothy, and in the following spring with clover, and I will warrant that you have no more running briars in that I field, until you allow them to come again •j by careless cultivation. The whole opera c; turn having been accomplished without any extra cost. If your ground be poor, it is necessary to manure while you are going through these operations. Sheep raising on filthy firms 1 believe to be a good thing to do, as the sheep will eat most of the weeds the cattle won’t touch; but before going into sheep we mast eradicate the dogs, which heretofore has been a harder thing to do than to get rid of the weeds. One principle affects the vitality of d> weeds, which should never be lost sight of > in attempting their destruction. It is a well known law of vegetation that the growth of the sap is affected by the leave# of the plant, and it is tho growing sap that enables it to maintain its existence. By preventing the development of the leaves and consequently the growth of the sap, tho life of the plant will be sacrificed, i The principle, therefore, on which to work | in destroying all sorts of weeds, is to de- I prive them of their leaves as soon as they I appear. —Belnir .Hgu if- Intelligencer. Deer Creek Club. | Tho Deer Creek Farmers Club of Har | ford county, Md., metal Mr. Parker Lee s, [ May 31st. The first business in order was the examination of the farm. The timo thy field, some 30 acres, was knee-high J with timothy, and perfectly uniform ali | over the field. We then took a look at 1 the beef cattle, some 43 in number, 10 or i 13 being fat enough now for the butcher, i and they will weigh probably 1,200 pounds | each. They were grazing on a meadow of i some 40 acres, the most of which was a j sod of 30 years standing, liaviug been | mowed for thirteen years liefure it was turned out for pasture. It is now covered | with natural grass a foot high. All the : grass lias been produced and kept up by 1 the application of stable manure, which is j hauled nut and spread at all times during 1 the year, as fast as made; which, by the way, is what all our farmer# ought to do. j but the usual practice in Harford. I be -1 lieve. is to haul the manure out in the fall, i leaving it in the barn yard all summer to j bleach in the sun and rain, thereby loosing ' its most valuable parts. The barn is about j 00x40 feet, and filled underneath with . stabling for thirty-five head of cattle and I ten horses. Wo noticed some very fine I cows. Mr. Lee seemed to have a place j for everything, and everything was in its place. All the implements, machinery, wagons, etc., were carefully housed. The question for the evening was the ' * Eradication of W eeds." The application of salt was recommended, after plowing the ground. Also to keep their tops cut off. This is a good plan to kill docks. Mr. 9 James Lee would mow docks, and cut off under ground with a post digger. As to sorrel, Mr. Lee don't think lime will kill it. Any other fertilizer that will make the grass grow will kill it; that is, the , grass will kill it. Mr. Munnikhuysen don't think lime will kill it; knows that it grows luxurianly around a lime kiln Mr. Parker thought that 50 bushels of lime to the acre would kill it. To destroy running briars Mr. Parker Lee would sow clover and mow frequently. Mr. \eilson would plow up, put in corn, then wheat; then wheat again and grass. Practiced that process and got rid of them The question of a dog law came up and was talked over. Mr. Webster had tried for ten years to get a good law. Another member would tax every dog |5 and apply the money to the public roads. People would not care to pay $5 for most dogs, consequently a great many would be killed and sheep raisers could go ahead with ini-, 1 ! punity. The Club respectfully suggests to the fanners of Harford the great necessity of their nsing their best endeavors to get their fields clear of all nettles and thistles, I because they are increasing to a great ex - tent in all neighborhoods, and the efforts ! of a few fanners are rendered useless by | the majority paying no attention to these : i pests, allowing them to grow on their funns i aud east their seeds to the four winds. i. The Secretary then adds this quaint note : After all, we had our usual "frrtl * ('ey time," the table being presided over by Mrs. Parker Lee and Mrs. A roller. We ■* did our tluty. I, . .. . t Fertilizing Properties in Bones. 1. 1 The true value of bones, aside from J their importance in the arts, of handles,| . rings, paints, clarifying sugar etc., is fast 1 e beginning to be appreciated in this eottu „ try. People were horrified a few years since by the published account of the lons n of human bone* transported from the bat j tielield of Waterloo, to be ground and s spread over the worn-out lands of Eunqie. . From time immemorial it has been known that vegetation, and particularly trees, j thrive immensely in graveyards, j Now it is neither the gelatine nor glue e that holds the particles of hone together, j ~ I nor the lime of which they are composed. e which gives activity to vegetable growth „ alone, but the phosphorus inflammable j. material of which matches are mannfae e lured, known in its combination phos ,l phate of lime, that plants seize upon with w avidity as food. Nothing else within the range of agricultural experience so rapidly i ■ I developes the cellular structure, e j To be most useful, bones should be pul _ , verized, and that enables water to make a ; ; quicker solution of the phosphate, which „ j the minute rootlets immediately absorb I j and circulate through the stem, hmves and . | fruit. Save the bones, therefore. Let , j nothing go to waste. There are actual t. treasures concealed in a diy bone, if the r j right course lie pursued to exact them. | I In the skeleton of a horae, or ox, or , i even a dog or eat, there are about from - | one to four pounds of phosphorus. The" caress# of any of these animals, cut up and distributed among fruit trees, instead of being buried out of the way as a nuisance, j would bo to them a rich entertainment of delicious food. —OtimietJ farmer. Poixthv.—Tile pip is occasioned by ; the forming of a dry horny scale upon the tongue: the beak becomes yellow at the i | base; the plumage becomes ruffled; the j bird mopes and pines; the appetite gradu ally declines to extinrtioii—und at length j it dies, completely worn out by fever and sl(|patioii. (Jive the bird, three times a i day, for a week or two, two or three grains of black pepper in fresh butter, which will effect a cure. It is recommended to chick- i ( en raisers to raise some broom com seed I ' aud let the fowls have free access to it, 1 tl t* a hetiltby and fattening feed for them. 1 Treat reports with indifference, and others will .wnon learn to disregard' them ii I (Odd.s and (Ms. ; Learn op thr Lowi.y.—“Have you | ever entered a cottage, ever travelled In a i coach, ever talked with u peasant ia the • field, or loitered with a mechanic at the . j loom,’’ says Sir Kdward Bulwcr Lytton, 1 { “aud not found that each of those men i had a talent you had not, knew something i you knew not ?” The most useless creature that ever i yawned at a club, or counted the vermin on ’ ' hi* rags under the suns of Calabria, has no } | excuse for want of intellect. What men ' | want is not talent, it is purpose; in other t j words, not the power to achieve, but the | will to labor. lam no believer in genius, ’ j but I believe that labor, judiciously and | continuously applied, becomes genius. J j Ut*K of Charcoal. —The Cowitry f Gentleman says :—At this season of the r | year one desires to obtain some purifier, I and charcoal is of the greatest value for t i the purpose. All kinds of utensils can be , | purified from disagreeable odors by rinsing . ; them out with charcoal dust wot into a f • soft paste. Putrid water is immediately i | deprived of ita bad smell by its use. When r ! meat, flesh, etc., are liable to become I I spoiled from long keeping, charcoal dust || j will keep them sweet; aud if there is a I j slight taint to meat, it can lie taken out by putting three or four pieces of H as large as an egg into the water in which it is r j boiled. This will effectually purify that : which seems too far gone to use. f f j Safe Test for Coal Oil.—The most x 1 effective way to stop the sale of dangerous j oils and burning fluids w hich are so des q j tractive to life and property Is to educate t 1 the people. The test is so simple that it j is in the power of every one. The test is s | as follows : Pour a small quantity of oil ? ; upon a saucer or tin plate: apply u lighted ’ i match; if it ignites immediately or even : before the fire touches it, let the oil be re . | turned to the vender as unsafe. Good j \ safe oil will not flash, but burn slowly when the lighted match Is dropped into it, and the fire Is extinguished us soon as the match is removed. If the j*eoplc will sub -1 ject their oil to this test and use only that - which stands it, accidents will be rare. * Johns Hopkins, of Baltimore, who has - j given some $2,500,000 for benevolent ob | ! jects, is now seventy-eight years of age. a i .
