POETRY. To My Maples. BY WILLIAM C. RICHARDS. Your time is come, my tall and straiglit-limbed ma ples, Whose boles the wrathful winds have blenched, not bent; We've done, at last, with frosts and snows as staples, Or haled them for a while to banishment. This is your hour; ye shall no more be flouted With leafless honors by the vaunting spruce, Whose verdant arms old Winter’s legions routed, While all your blazoned banners drifted loose. Already have Its glowing shields grown dusky, W“«© emera^ tints are deepening in the brake; Ana odots, resinous no more, but musky. Steal from the beds where the young violets wake. I mark vour slender twigs against the azure Grow lxjssy with the rounding of their gems. And soon soft leaves will veil each fine embrasure, And crown your ample brows with diadems. For every blast that through the spruce went croon . ing, A geutle breeze your tender breasts shall stir; Your grateful shade shall woo the lover’s nooning, When he will read sweet parables to her— So sweet the mid-day silence shall be golden Of thrush and oriole, in the morn that sing; Less dear their notes than those, both new and olden, Which Love’s young ecstasies to young hearts bring. And so, my maples, tall and verdure-crested, Ye shall fling back the floutings of the spruce, Till the oright minstrels in your bosoms nested With happy even-songs to strife give truce. I love you all, O trees, that round my garden Stand gentries 'twixt me and the common air; Nor less the spruce than maple count 1 warden, To shut without the ill, within the fair. Grand winter trees that draw your fringy curtain To shield my cottage idols from the snow, I sing in strains nor grudging nor uncertain Your 6ombre vigilance while tempests blow. And if I praise you, maples, in my rhyming, And brush the spruce's light reproach away, I bid you heed how gifts depend on timing, And tiees, like all our treasures, have tiieir day. —Harper's Magazine for May. THE FARM AND HOUSEHOLD. Special Manure* far Gardena. Of coarse the most certain and most relia ble of manures is that which is always mosl easily procured—that from the stable. But altogether it costs considerable. Usually a purchase price is paid for it at the stable, It Is then hauled a greater or less distance, and Is handled lrom two to four times betore it is nnder the surface. It behooves us theD, tc always use it to the best advantage. Generally I know of no objection to the use of fresh manures, except that if applied heav ily they trouble In fitting the ground for fine seeds. On the contrary, I have always no ticed very good effect "from the use of long manures, and advise piling manures only when no ground is prepared to receive it, But this period covers a considerable portion w* J vwi HUU U1UV.U Wi IV UIUSV W piltUi XI left thus in warm weather without further at tention, fresh manure invaribly fire fangs— burns up—and looses nearly all its virtues, till it is worth little more than so much chaff. To avoid this, after several days hauling o manure we give it a good drenching with wa ter, and cover with a half inch of soil to helf retain the moisture, and to fix all the escap ing ammonia. When wanted it is usually short and finely rotted. Hen manure, when mixed with enough soil to work fine, has special fitness for the onion crop, as it can be applied to the surface where wanted, and has no weed seeds, and is exceedingly valuable, being little less than guano. Leached ashes have no especial value on sandy soils and produce most effect upon on ions, potatoes, corn and root crops. Their value is lasting and the effect of liberal appli cation will be noticed for years, and if not tc be hauled more than three miles, their use is profitable. Unleacbed ashes have a most marked effecl when applied broadcast over onions partly grown,—in fact, it is one of the most valuable special manures for this crop and is worth lei this purpose twice the amount paid by soap makers. For all garden crops they are valu able ; potatoes, turnips, beets and peas deriv ing most benefit next to onions. Lime is of most value on rich old soils, its effect being to unlock and release fertility al ready in the soil, but inactive and insoluble. Hence, upon poor soils it may sometimes do more harm than good, but used upon rich old garden soils its use occasionally will produce astonishing results. Superphosphate of lime produces a very quick effect, and besides the fertility it adds to a soil, the rapid development it aids in plant life, enables the roots to lay hold ol much food they would not otherwise. In the garden it is of especial value to hasten growth while plants are still small and unable yet to reach coarser manures, and also to touch up and bring forward any portions of crops which seem to need further help. While de pending chiefly on stable and green manures, yet we always find profitable use for more or less superphosphate. In the garden, land plaster is exceedingly valuable in its effects. Some of the most marked benefits from its use have been notic ed upon vines during a drouth. If applied over the surface of a hill and vines during s drouth so severe that the leaves drop at mid day, they will, in a couple of days, show no signs of dropping, bu exhibit unusual vigor. While in this section we sometimes use it without any perceptible effect, in Michigan it tells wonerfully upon clover and generally upon other crops. Brewer’s spent hops are, in some places, so abundant as to be an important fertilizer, generally one load being equal to two of stable manure. But I have found them most valu able, when well rotted, for raking into the surface of seed beds in which are raised cab bage, celery and other garden plants, since it retains moisture, keeps the surface loose and light, and is in every way favorable for the successful growth of plants. In like manner it is excellent for any where you wish a most vigorous growth—those vegetables for the fair, you know—since it furnishes abundant fertil ity, while it keeps the soil in the best condi tion for growth.—Hoot’s Garden Manual Ilondan Hens. In my opinion, the Houdan is the best of all for actual profit; now for the proof. As soon as they are out of the egg and drv, they are ready to run with the hen; and 'almost any kind of soft food will do for them. They do not want to be fed with a silver spoon, or nursed like a baby and be fed on pap. I re peat, almost any kind of soft food will do for them, and they will thrive well, being very haroy. They feather and mature quickly, for I have had them to lay at months old, with ordinary care, while a mongrel hatched at the same time, with the same feed and care did not lay till some six weeks later, and such eggs I why, the great big Brahmas’ eggs don’t begin with them. I think the* (the Houdan) can beat anything in the poultry line for weight of eggs. They are good win ter layers with ordinary care, and to keep any hens laying in winter they must have care. Most of us can recollect what a bad winter we had last year. Ice and snow on the ground for about four months. I recollect my pets were not out of their coops for weeks at a time, but they laid faithfully right along, and I had chickens batched on the 22d of January, ard about thirty more of the same kind on the 20th of February. I know some breeders will differ with me about their being good winter layers, but I have iried them, now, this is the third year. Now, about the meat part, which I consider cannot be beat for flavor, except in the Dor king. Neither can they be beaten much in making flesh. I exhibited a cockerel seven months old that weighed seven pounds, and I have bad them weigh twelve pounds to Ihe nolp of niv mnntka nlJ 1__11-t _ n_.l_ fancier coming to look at them; he would not believe me about their weight until they were put oit the scales. And I think there is moie actual meat on a Houdan than almost any other kiDd ot fowl of the same weight. Well do I recollect the first one I killed. After 1 had plucked it, I banded it over to my wife to draw. She called my attention to it, as she thought something ailed it, as she re marked, *‘it has not got much more than half the insides of other fowls.” I have been in the poultry business from boyhood up to the present time, am now thirty-six years old and have had experience in almost all kinds, but have settled down on the Houdans as being the most profitabl of them all. _ Feod lor Young Pigg. The value of skimmed milk from the dairy for feeding young pigs, has hardly been esti mated high enough by the majority of farm ers. Com meal is selling uow at only about a cent and a third per pound. We have not found it worth that, and yet, if we should sell all our milk and buy meal instead, it is doubt ful if the pigs would make as much pork for the money as if a portion of the milk had heen retained. A dollar’s worth of meal, at the above price, may feed a pig a longer time than tbe milk wonld have done, and yet It does not follow that the meal is, on the whole, the cbeepest or best food. Cows’ milk, after most of the cream has been removed, seems to come very near sup plying tbe pig with the best substitute for its natural food, while corn meal, although rich in fat and beat, is so concentrated and so wanting in elements which are especially needed by very young or growing aQimals, that it is worth really less than many would suppose. Corn meal, besides beiDg wanting in the eliments of growth, packs and becomes hard and indigestible in tbe stomachs of young animals, unless it is mixed with milk, bran or some other less concentrated food, that may act as a divider in keeping the par ticles separate, so that the fluid- of tbe stom ach can come iu contact with all parts of it at once. It requires but a moment’s consideration to sea that a solid ball of corn meal in the stom ach of a young pig or other animal, cannot be acted upon by the gastric juice, except at the outside. Digestion, in such a case, must go ou like the melting of a cube of ice, aud as the stomach was not arranged for doing its work in that way, it breaks down after a short time. Indigestion follows such feeding, and as a consequence, the food that is taken in is not fully ultilized, and of course, does not givo an ammount of growth corresponding with its nutritive value when propeily pre pared or judiciously mingled with other food that is less concentrated. Farmers know that milk is good for pigs. They know, too, that skimmed milk is a waste product of the dairy, and unless fed to animals, would generally be wasted. They feed the mik because they happen to have it, but would not buy it Instead of corn meal. We believe that, at a cent a quart, it would be a cheap food to buy to mix with meal for feeding to pigs for the first few weeks after weaning. Many pigs have been spoiled by being confined to com meal diet while young. In feeding young pigs or calves, growth and not fat should be the object sought.—New England Farmer._ Bee Notes. In most locations, bees will be placed upon their summer stands this month. It is desir able, (though not essential), that each hive occupy the staud it did last season- Where possible, set out those farthest from each other at the same time, as in the confusion of the first flight they are more likely to mix, and in returning to draw largely to one hive. Choose a still day, and at least as warm as COdeg. Towards evening, after the bees be come quiet, close all ventilation, except at the lower entrance, and that partially, if large. When moveable frames are used, all combs should be removed, except those oc cupied by the bees. If hanging frames are used, a close fitting division board should be put in. Moderate feeding is desirable to stim ulate breeding. If honey is abundant in the hive, the capping may be broken, when the bees will remove the honey to the center of the hive with desired effect. Rye-meal should be placed where the bees may have access to it from the very first, and continue the supply until it is refused; using dishes of a size cor responding to the number of colonies. The amount of meal taken by the bees will de pend upon the supply of pollen.—See Editor, Manuring in the Hill. Alluding to the old and almost universal custom ot manuring in the hill, the Massa chusetts Ploughman says that farmers of the early days did not stop to study the effect of a shovel full of manure in a hill of corn, if so he would have found that the minute fibrous roots of the plant soon pushed out beyond the mass of the coarse manure in the hill, and spread around through the soil to a consider able distance from the main stalks. Now we know that the minute diffusion of fertilizing substances throughout the soil promotes the continued growth; that after the first early start of the plant, after the fibrous roots have had time to extend, coarse manures placed in 1 a bulk in the hill are less effective than they would be if more generally mixed in with the surrounding soil. Hence the Ploughman believes in applying farm manures broadcast near the surface, finely pulverizing and in ■ corporating them as much with the soil as possible, and using some good concentrated fertilizer in the hill to give a vigorous start to the plant. In this kind of hill manuring all good farmers will also be inclined to believe, A Word of Camion. In an article on the question of plant food and the use of special “formula fertilizers” which has taken up considerable space in the agricultural journals of late, the Scientific Farmer gives a little plain advice which ail would do well to heed. It says: “We would caution farmers not to rush heedlessly and enthusiastically into large expenditure in this direction, but rather to feel their way by the trial of a few acres only, this year, conform ing their practice to rules laid down for their guidance, looking forward to greater profits another year, with larger area of crops, should the present vear’s experience be satis fying.” BUSINESS DIRECTORY.
