Now is the time to secure the annual supply of wood for fuel. Now, the labors of the field are suspended, and men and terms are mostly unemployed. The wet and quaking bog wi!l bear up the wood chopper and bis sled, and heavier loads can be drawn over the roads than in Summer. The cola weather, too. brace? up the farmer, with a superfluous strength, which makes the severest labor pleasant. Now, then, is the lime for gathering thh Winter harvest. We do not mean, however, that the wood now cut. should be used this Winter; let it be sftcured now, and dried for consumption next WMnter. It pnins us to see thu wastful and barbarous custom of burning green wood still prevalent in many parts of the country. The very poor man, we suppose. can not lay up a stock before hand; he must buy at market price from month to month, green or dry ; but the farmer, at least; is under no such necessity. He can and he should fell his trees in Winter, haul the loos sled length to his back-yard, and then chop or saw, and split them into stove-wood ; and by the time farm work in the field begins to press, his wood should all be neatly stored away under cover., Yet there are some who look on this as unnecessary trouble; they have always inachines as ignorance, used green wood and got along very weil; what need of so much ado in drying and shrivelling up wood before burning i t ! Oh, plea of laziness ! Will such persons please exert themselves enough to look at a few figures, illustrating the economy of this thing. A log of unseasoned wood weighing, say one hundred pounds, will weigh, when dry, only sixty-six pounds What now now has it lost ? Any combustible matter? anything that will warm your house or cook your food ! No : it has lost 34 pounds of water. That won’t burn very well in a log of wood or anywhere else. Nay, it has got to be driven out of the log before the wood will burn. And how must that be done ? Solely by a waste of the heat necessary to convert that water into vapor and s earn. And where is the economy of this ? If about one-third of the weight of green water, then there are 1,- 443 pounds of water in every cord, which have got to be made into steam before the wood can be burned. Instead of using up our heat in the steam-making business.and so throwing it away, had we not better save it to warm our houses? At least, if there is economy in that business, we are to dull to see it. Will some sharp witted advocate of green wood plesse enlighten us. But aside from the question of economy, good well seasoned wood has much to do with domestic happiness. It is no light matter to be compelled to kindle fires every day and several times a day. with green wood. Especially so in Winter. And the man who provides nothing tor his house but green wood, is just the man to lie abed Winter mornings, and compels his wife to make the fires, dress the children and pre-r k fA o l / r a t t f n A m rA n i c __ Why use Cut Feed. An intelligent farmer asks for the philosophy of cutting hay. He can understand that it is useful to cut corn stalks, and coarse fodder, because the cattle will eat them better. But when cattle will eat up f^ood English hay perfectly clean, why should it be passed through the hay cutter. Our frieiid evidently Bupposes that the stomach Ut^es its work upon everything that passes into it, with equal facility, and without any tax upon the rest of ihe system.— This is manifestly an error. All feed has to be ground up before it can be assimilated, and pass into the circulation of the animal, If food is not artificially prepared by cut-tin^ r, grinding, or steaming, the animal has to prepare it himself, so far is he is able. ~ Certain kinds of food will pass through the system, imparting to it only a part of their nutriment, because the teeth of the animal have not perfectly masticated it. Whole kernels of corn or of oats are frequently seen in the fcece* of an old horse. The more perfectly food can be prepared, the more completely will the system appropriate its nutriment. If the whole labor of grinding up the food is thrown upon the animal it is a serious tax upon the vital energy, which every good farmer wants for other purposes. In the rase of the horse and the ox, you want the strength applied to the locomotion and to draft Wherever strength is applied to grinding food is so much taken irom their capacity for labor. I f three or four hours of strong mus- 1 cular labor are spent in working up hay and straw into a pulp, there is a great loss of strength and time. In the case of fattening animals,you want the aliment to go to the formation of fat;and flesb. This process goes on successfully, just as the animal is kept quiet, and comfortable. No useless labor should be expended in the grinding up of food. The straw cutter, working up the hay into fragments of half an inch in length or less, performs a good part of the work of the jaws, and makes the feeding of the animal a light matter. If the hay could be ground up into a fine meal, it would be still better; as it would make the work of tbe animal’ still lighter, and would more completely yield up its nutriment. If it could be steamed it would be best of all as it would then be wholly appropriated. We have r^o doubt that it pays quite as well to pass hay through thft machine,as the coarsest fodder. A root cutter is also indispensable adjunct to the barn, and the more perfectly it comminutes the roots the better. The f.trmer who has ever experimented with these machines, and marked the results of feeding with hay; and roots prepared in this way. can have no doubt of their utilty. Laziness, we apprehend, has quite as much do with the neglect of these It is work to turn the crank to cut up hay enough to feed twenty head of cattle, and in prospect of spending the elbow grease, it is very convenient to believe that it will not pay.— Sloth, however, is a poor counsellor in this case, as in all othors. We should as soon think of feeding cattle in the open field in this bleak Winter weather, as of feeding them with uncut hay. A warm stable and a straw cutter are both good investments. Langley's Bitters^ Hctt they go from the PbugStobe, ot C.B. MALTBIE. pare breakfast before his lordship bestirs himself. A wife must be a miracle of patience, energy and physical endurance to bear such treatment a long while cheerfully. No wonder that such families are oft en scenes of discord and gloom. No wonder that the wife and mother in such households breaks down prematurely, and that the children grow up rude and lawless, and with no love of home. If matters go wrong in the kitchen, they are quite sure to go wrong elsewhere, dignant cotemporary: Hot Beds, and How to make them The present month is a suitable time to make early hot beds, especially at the South, For extraordinary purposes, in this latitude and further North, the first or middle of March is early enough. Six cr eight week^ from the time of sowing, ordinarily bring forward plants to a suitable size for transplanting, and it is well to make the bed about two months before the season will be likely to admit of putting plants into the open ground. Various plans are adopted, and various fermenting materials used in constructing these beds. Some prefer excavating the eaith, and sinking the beds; others, build wholly on the surface. One uses spent tan, nr dried leaves, to produce the requisite heat; another, selects course stable litter alone. If a gentle, long continued warmth, is desired, the leaves or tan are suitable materials; but, if an active heat is desired; stable litter, or littar mixed with leaves are necessary. To meet the wants of the farmer or the young gardener constructing a hot-bed for tha first time, tve will be as explicit as brevity will admit. Every one has noticed the smoky steam rising from a heap of manure thrown from a horse-stable. This is a hot-bed, but too violent in its action, and without the needed covering of earth for the roots of plants, or the frame to protect them from outside frosts. To make n hot bed the frame is best made of pine planks, one and a half or two inches thick. Where two planks in height are used, they should be grooved together, to prevent any escape of heat between them. The side pieces may either slip down between upright cleats up Well says an in- the end pieces, oi be hooked or bolted ‘Green fire-wood to them so that the whole may be taken apart and stored away when not in use. The bed may be as long as desired placing several frames together if one is not sufficient. The ends should be the thickness or the sash higher than the sides, with one-half rabbetted out for the sash to tit closely in and slide upon. Cross pieces should be fitted between ench two sashes, and rabbeted out like the ends, to allow each sash to slide up and down independently of the others. The sides of the frame should be bevelled off so that tbe sash vvili fit closely, and every precaution used to retain the heat given out by the fermenting heap beneath. The sashes are usually made by sash makers, with a strong ouier frame and middle rails running lengthwise only, that the water may run off freely. W'here glazed coverings cannot easily be obtained, oiled cotton cloth may be tacked to frames which slide up and down, like the ; Or a cover for the whole bed may be hung by means of hinges upon the upper side, 'i he cloth covering is only to be used where glass is procurred with difficuliy. THE BKD. Choose a dry situation, sheltered upon the North by everg eens, or buildings, or by a tight fence. Make the bed upon the surface, running East and West, and about one foot larger each way than the frame which is to be set upon it. The sm-'king heap* of horse manure is our most convenient material, although, if dry forest leaves are at hand they may be mixed in. using one-third leaves to two-thirds manure. If the manure is strawy no matter, and if it has heated once before it will /erment again. Make into a heap about four f^et high, shaking it over with the fork and beating, but not treading it down as you proceed. Level it of and put on the frame and sash, fronting the South, and leave for a week to settle and generate heat. After six or eight days the mass will be in an active state of fermentation, known in part by the rank steam arising, and by the coating- of moisture on the glass. This is a proper time to cover with earth, leveling if necessary. Dry, rich loam, saved under cover for the purpose, is the best, but good garden soil will answer, only be sure‘ it is dry. Five or six inches of soil is a medium thickness for this covering. Rake it over finely, leaving the surface smooth and level. Put Ton the box and sash, and examine the earth daily, and when a moderate, uniform temperature is shown, which is usually in two or three days, the seeds may be put in. If the heat at any tima appears too great raise the upper part of the ashes for a few inches, that the external air may cool it.— If the warmth is not sufficient, bank up the sides and ends w th fermentinLj manure, which will tend to heat the wholo mass.— During very cold or snowy weather cover the whole with straw, or mats, or boards, and shovel away the snow as soon as the atorm is over. After the plants show themselves, a moderate airing should be given the bed each day, unless the weather is freezing. During very mild weather the sashes may be slid entirely off, closing at an early hour in the afternoon. Especially do plants need this airing after they have thrown out the second and third leaves, and are nearly ready to transplant. A neglect of a single hot day will often scnld and seriously injure them. Previous to transplanting give the bed a good watering to make the earth 8 4 lere to the roots. \Vater at other times at needed, or the ashes may be left off during a warm rain. The Boy’s Tool Chest. We have know'n many an excellent mechanic made just from the fact that in boyhood they learned the use of a lew joiner’s tools. A boy if he be not utterly stupid, takes to usii)g a hammer, and driving a nail as soon as his right hand can lilt the one or the left hand hold the olhe?. And as they grow older nothing engages their attention, or fixes thtir thoughts, when want ing recreation, like pottering about some-tliing- or-oiher, with a saw, a hammer, some nails, and a gimlet. No matter what they make—whether it be a martin or a wren box, a rat-trap, or a hen coop , it is all the I and sell ... same, so that they m/ke something, amuse ! just about the ti;st of the fishing seaion, themselves, and learn the use of tools. In ’ and so we expected to realize a bandsjiiie fact, we consider a well furnishes tool chest protit by way of fun, at least, for boys, of as much consequence, and as Playing “Injin” on a Hoosier. Last summer—or rather last spring— while stopping in Indiana, I formed one of a company that went to the Falls of White River, near the village of Newberry, for the purpose of having a regular set, two or three days fishing spree, as the Hoosiers call it. The first day of our excursion turned out to be windy, and we had no luck; the next day we caught only one small bass, a little snapping-turtle. a few frogs—just for the fun of it—and a bad cold. On the third day the tables turned, and fortune smiled upon us propitiously, for ive ail caught fresh colds. Jake Collins fell overboard and we caught him. Bill Marling caught the ague, tnd Tom Burbon caught a catfish that weighed some seventy pounds. Our ‘spree’ was now at an end, and we found it a matter otnodifiiculty to take home with us ail that we had caught except the big fish. It was too lar^e to carry, and too small lo jusiify the hire of a special conveyance, 30 we were sorely puzzled as to what disposition we shv/u'd make of it. At last a happy thought came to our relief. Joe, the auctioneer, formed one of our party, and so we resolved to go up to Newberry he monster at Buction, It was profitable an investment as we do a set of schooi books, and a boy, who, at the age offiltecn yearft. cannot make a good substantial dry good’s box to pack his traps in, why—that boy’s education has been neglected. We do not confine these remarks to Farmers’ boys alone, they apply to ev erybodys’ boys—city, village and country. Nor, where there is gardener, or farmer, should the garden tools be omitted. The boys should have the best of tools—and fitted to their own size and strength. We have seen many a bright, ambitious boy driven out of the garden, the field and the meadow, because ha could make no headway with a miserable cast ofl’tool given him which no one else would use. but *it was good enoug i for a boy I’ We consider it an outrage, as well as injustice of the grossest kind to turn a boy out to labor with a poor tool. If you hire a man. and expect to do anything, he has got to have good tools, and if a man of any spirit, he will not work without them. And so with boys; they should be taught that their labor is W hen we arrived at the village, wc* found about thirty persons assembled round a little grocery. Chuckling over such a streak of good luck. Joe shouldered the fish, mounted upon the head of a molasses hogshead, and proceeded to business. ‘i\ou', gentlemen,’ said he, ‘how much do you say to start him? Do 1 hear fifty cents? F-i-f-t-y c-e-n-t-s! do 1 hear fifty cents ?’ But they did not say. and poor Joe cried and went on at an awful rate without the least prospect of a bid. Seeing that our ehance of a speculation was but slim, we concluded to amuse ourselves by bidding for fun. ‘Five dollars to start bim,’ said I. ‘Five—five—five—and agoing as cheap as d i r t ; who says more ?’ ‘Ten,’ says another of our company. ‘Fifteen ?’ And so the bids ran on till they reached thirty dollars—all sham, of course. Just at that moment a tall, gawky-look ing Hoosier was seen making rapid st.ides towards the scene of actioh. Having arriv-eil and looked at the hsh on all sides, and ' worth something, and nothing will so readily convince them of the fact, as to furnish them with the best of tools, such as they are.T his is an important subject, although many men and parents do not heed it.— Boys are simply miniature men, and their little yearnings and tastes require equal Sjr itification, for they are far more innocent and easily supplied than those of most men. We have had some experience in this.— We have known boys who had a little office or workshop of their own. well furnished with tools, where they would t.pend their leisure hours, f»r vacation days from school, happy as need be. when others of ike condition, excepting the workshop-men racketing about the streets full of nr.ise and mischief, or wasting their time in idleness. It needs but little guessing to decide which of the^e boysgiov up ih? most thoughttu! useful men. A boy’s workshop can be fitted up almost every where. It is not much used in Winter, the days being short, and the nights appropriated to reading, study, or social intercourse. Any small part pf an outbuilding will answer the purpose. But it should be a ‘workshop’ partitioned off by itself, and devoted exclusively to the boys’ use, and be their property and nobody else’s. It should be well lighted; a little workbench in it, a toot chest, nails and hooks upon the walls to hang tools and other things upon, not stowed away in the chest, and complete in all its little traps and fur-nishing.= ». Tbe whole affair costs but little —not half what a great many men spend in a freak of nonsense, and the boys are made happy. Then, furnish the shop with a little cheap timber, a fnw nails of various sizes; a paper of tacks, an oil stone to sharpen the tools and they will soon learn to repair various little things about the house, and larger things about the farm, which in a short time, will save many a dollar paid for a professed mechanic, and at much greater inconvenience. Th^ boy thus finds himself to be an important member of the family; he becomes self-reliant, and soon gains to himself, a character. In all this we do not propose the workshop and the tools as imposed on the boys as a labor, or a task ; but simply as a thing of amusement and recreation. They will take to it as readily as a duck to the water. But few people we find have a definite idea of the real education of boys. Some think the bo.!,k and the birch—and that all the time—the true method ; while others, just the reverse, think boys will come up well enough of themselves. Our notion lies between the two; the book in its due season ; tlte birch, when it is imperatively necessary—and that, not often; play, frolic and amusement, of stated times, with no period of either, and the workshop where they can go at will, when not at study, and employ their hands and thoughts to some useful purpose, and let their lii'e be as It may, they will surely find the skill so acquired. to be useful. listened to ‘thirty, and going/ he bawled o u t :— ‘I say, stranger—you on that ’ar barrel —I kin do better than that myself. Jest hold on a minute, and let me her a nuther squint a t ’itn. By golly I just say fifty* a n d resk i t !’ ‘Fifty ! fifty !’ cried the auctioneer, astonished at the bid; ‘fifty!—going—going —gone at fifty.’ The fi^h was handad over to the Hoosier, who, after looking at old Joe a moment, and smelling to see tbat his prize was not spoiled, began to walk off with it. 'Stop, old fellow, you have not paid for it! ’ cried several. •Paid, darnation !’ replied the green one coming to a halt. 'Warn’t the fidh gin to me ? Didn’t 1 hear yoO all a guessin’ thirty ? and didn’t I guess fifty ?—and I’ll bet a coon-skin he don’t weigh a«y more; and didn’t that old puss-bellied feller up thar give it to me r’ ‘No, no !’ exclaimed old Joe, while we were all holding our sides, you bid fifty dollars for the fish, and you’ve got it to p a j . ’ After a sour look, and a frown that was intended to tell how indignant he felt, the Hoosier replied :— ‘If yer Injin enough to take a thing back arter givin’ it to a feller, take i t ;’ and suiting the action to the word, be threw it at the auctioneer with all his strength. Our corpulent friend having no desire to come in contact with a flying fish, leaped as high as he could, and when be came down, the hogshead top gave way beneath his weight and in the next instant he was floundering up to his chin in molasses. *Te, he, he !’ roared the Hoosier, as he made tracks oflfin the way he had come.— Te, he, he!’ now yer in a sweet pickle!’ And so he was. With much diflSculty we succeeded in extricating him, after which we paid the damage, and started in search of water, resolving never again under any circumstances, to set up a fish mar ket at Newberry. A Simple Remedy for Barked Trees. Sm;—In the Fall and Winter of 1856. I was obliged to keep a couple of goats for the sake of their milk, for an infant. Dar ing my absence to the City one day in the Winter, the goats got loose and committed depredations in my garden, by stripping the bark from several young Apple and Pear trees, and through a broken paling found their way into a neighbor’s garden and subjected his Apple and Fear trees to the same treatment, gnawing the bark off as high as they could reach. 1 supposed of course, the trees were all killed, and concluded to experiment on those in my own garden, I procured several newspapers, cut them into convenient strips for handling, and covered them with good boiled flour paste, wrapping several thicknesses around tbe wounded parts of .the trees, thus forming an aitificial bark; My trees were covered with foilage during the Summer and Autumn and 1 could not perceive any difference in them during the whole season. My neighbor did nothing with his. In the Spring and early part of Sum^ mer, they looked promising, but as soon as the extreme heat of Summer touched them, they were withered aud completely dried up, with an abundance of shoots from the lower part of thebodybelow the wounds. All the trees are about wx years old, «*nd were transplanted from the nursery about three years since. There were two young Elms on the front road that shared the same fate as my neighbor’s trees. Can it be that the covering protected the circulation of the sap and answered the same purpose as t ie natural bark ? O* Westchester Co., N. Y. A Model Highway. As a general f ict, highways in this country are in the following condition: Tbe road track itself is indifferently made, and composed of the soft rich loam scraped up annually from the side gutters; deep ditches are left on one or both sides, making it difficult to turn our ; a few trees ai-e planted here and there, near the fences, but many of them have been badly gnawed by horses hitched to them, or thrown out of the perpenrlicular by all sorts of street-going animals rubbing against them ; sheep, cows snd geese are roaming at large, or lying down in the carriage-way; hogs are root-int; up the ground on every side, and preparing it to grow a tine crop of weeds, for the benefit of neighboring fields and gardens ; and each one of these vagrant animals IS looking out for every open gate, and every weak spot in tbe fences, to get into the gaidens door-yards, and cultivated fields, which adjoin the street. W'^e need not fill out the picture minutely—it is so familiar to everybody. But we rejoice to say, that signs of a better state of things are begining to appear. In some towns, tbe barbarous custom af street pasturing has been voted a nuisance, and been voted o u t ; the carriage track is neatly rounded over in the center, and covered with gravel; a slope is made on each side, just sufficient to turn off the water and is covered with a firm and smooth c a r p e t of g l a s s . Trees are planted abundantly by the roadside, and they are cared for, and they live aud grow. The grass on the margin of the track almost rivals in iuxurance that of the neighboring fields, and both when growing and whea newly mown, presents a beautifol sight.
