town i  garden  it had  been unfeiieed for many    years  and a eoininon road passed diagon     ally across it  on which nothing could    grow to exhaust the soil  which  moreover     w as somewhat manured by the droppings  of the horses which constantly pas  ed over  it  But on spading it up  the soil where    the road ran  presented tlie light colored    appearance of sub soil  and instead of pro  i  ducing a luxuriant growtli  proved to be j  less fertile than the neighboring portions    on each side wliich had been annuaily    covered with Yveeds  and it required some  years of cultivation to bring it into a very  productive condition  Something neces   sary to active vegetable growth had been  removed from it  or some injury had been  done to the soil  by the lon  exposure to  the atmospheric agencies  whilst it was in  the bare condition of the hard heateii  road    This experience corresponds rvith tlie  results of an experiment mentioned by tlie  celebr ated Saxon Agricultiir al Cliemist   Stockhardt  in his Cliemical Feld Lectures    Bohn s edition  page 310   as performed by  lUock   who took a piece of manured land   worked it tlioroughly for 2 vears  Yvithout  sowing it or allowing anything to grow  on it  and found it to become as mucli ex   hausted as some similar land on wliich  three crops had been raised in the same  time  Tlie heat of the sun and the mois   ture of rains and de  vs favored the oxida   tion  or decay  of the humus or vegetable  mo  dd of the soil  the nitration ot the wa     T ti    lieavy rail     li iJ cairied oft  dis    solved nutritive matters  which were  ioubtless appropriate   by the weeds or  other vegetable growing on the adjoining  ground  and thus the soil had been impov   erished   lust as Stockhardt also reports   as the experience ol some of the forresters  ol Europe   that hare and unshaded spots   in the midst of the forests  continually get  poorer and poorer    During the chemii al examination of the    soils of Kentucky  in the unlinishcd Geo     logical Survey oV tlie State t I was struck j  with a somewhat similar demonstration    which frequently appeared on comparing    the chemical composition of the soil of  long cultivated fields with similar soil  in I  a virgin state  taken from close adjoining     Generally the old cultivated soil had lost I  more of its elements of fertility than could i  be accounted for in the probable crojis  raised on it  For illustration of this  let    us take the example of the examination of  some soils from XIason county  sent by    Gol  L   f  Br adtord   re  orted in Vol  A  of   Kentucky Geological Reports  pages SI     and following  I   One sample is from a tield said to have 1  been exhausted by successive crops of to   bacco  the number of these crops was not    stated   the other is a virgin soil from the  same farm  I   The chemical analyses showed that  in i  the exhausted soil  all the essential fertil     If  ing ingredients were greatly more re     diici d in ipiantity than could be accounted    for in any probable time of cultivation  i   Let IK  for the comparison  take the sin     gle ingredient I otash  This  in tiie virgin  soil  was found in the large proportion of  per cent   more than three  fourths of  one iier cent   but in the old soil it only  amounted to O  i i  i per cent   a little more  than one fourth of one percent         alculating the total weight of the soil  on an  acre ol land  to the depth of one foot   at 3O0O IXK  lbs  three millions of pounds    the potash on the acre would amount to  21 7 10 lbs  in the virgin soil  and only 17   j    i  iO lbs in the soil of the old held  the dif  1  ference being as much as  J 7 i    pounds of   potash to tiie acre  Now  a tobacco eropof  1000 pounds to the acre  I ven when we add    one third more for the stalks       would    take from the soil only 00 73 pounds of    potash  or a little less than 70 lbs  and it i  would have taken nearly 70 such I rops of  tobacco to remove this amount of this sub   siance from the soil   whilst  very proba   bly  not half that number of crops had    been taken from it      If we were to compare the relative pro     portions of the carbonate of lime and    phosphoric acid  in the two soils  we should  Jindthis difterence to be still greater   it  would have required 270 years of annual  tobacco cropping to account for the defi   ciency li f t ie first named substance in the  exhausted soil   and more than 300 crops of  tobacco could have been supplied by the  missing phosphoric aciil  It is a law in  vegetable growth that all the elements  which enter into the composition of plants  are equally essential  and lienee  the defi   cieuey of any one   as jiotash   would ren   der a soil sterile  even although all the  other elements were present in great  abundance  We take therefore the exam   ple of the one Yvhich is the most quickly  exhausted by the tobacco crop  the potash   and limit the productiveness of the soil by  the supply of this alone    This is only one of numerous examples   in these com parative analyses of our soils   and from other sources  going to show that     in  hoed crops    or whencY cr the soil is  kejit bare of vegetation  whilst it is fully  exposed to the atmospheric  agencies  to  the action of the heat of the sun  the oxy   gen ol the air  and the water of dews rains   itc    it will be exliausted of its fertility   independent of tlie action of crops grow   ing ujion it    M e naturally ask  wliat is the reason of  this   Stockhardt s ays it isowing to evap   oration from the soil hj  the action of the  sun  and the cfl ects of heat  air  moisture    tc  in causing the oxidation  or decay  of  the vegetable mould  or

carbonic acid  which   aided by the humus itself  takes up much  fertilizing matter from the bare soil and     sown to tlie acre  we had ordered one and  a half  but tlie foremen  refused to liave it

 the instinct o f  setting begins to operate   when c icli will make a nest  or sometimes  two will club together in laying and set   ting  When the chicks come out tjiey  must have a free riin as coiifiiiemcnt is  fatal to the brood  The Guinea is a prolific  layer  but her noise sometimes is ratlicr  annoying      Food for Young Turkeys    There is no  better food for tiirkej s than Indian meal  moistened witli milk  a liberal suiqily  of  clabbering milk  occasioiiall   a little boiled  rice  and crumbs of hre ad soaked in milk   Wet  cool weather is very hard upon young  turkeys  which are naturally delicate  and  tlie utmost care should he taken to keep  them Iiou sed and as drj  as possible    Give  them Ashes    Wiiere fowls are  confined in considerable numbers to a re   stricted enclosure they should have a good  supply of wood ashes to wallow in  Ic  will pay to fill a large box with ashes and  place it under shelter where the fowls can  use it at pleasure  It is a pleasure to them  as is manifest by the e ageriiess with whicli  they avail themselves of this means of  purification         vJOTJK D  IL       Desirable Farm for Sale         I oFFKIi lor   alc

ronilitrior of electricity of all the metals  except silver   Vceording to the celebrated  French E lcctrician  Ilecqnerel  copper and  iron in rods or wires of tin  same size   conduct in tlie proportions of 100 for the  former and a little less than 10 for the lat   ter  so tliat till  condnciiiig iKiwer of tlie  copiicr is more tlian six times greater tlian  tliatofthe iron  The Englisli E lectrieian  Sami  Harris  found copper to conduct  electricity live times greater and better  tlian iron   and more I cccnt observations  make tlie rate to be as 100 for tlie cornier  is lo i i for the iron  All philosophers  agree tliat the copper is a mueh more rapid  conduetor than iron  in about tlie propor   tion above s ated  Copper is tlierefore  greatly preferable for the liglitninir rod  the oltice of which is to oia n the easiest   and  piiekest pa sway for tlie eleetrieity  between the atniospli erc  and tlie condiict   ing surface of the eartli  This metal is  preforalile to iron also  liecanse it does not  rust as rapidly as iron does  and tlie mode  adopted liy yon of attaehing tlie copper  rod to tin  h liililing with zinc strips  will  elfectiially prevent tin   liglit oxidation   whieli tlie eopiier might undergo  if not  thus protected  Tlie zinc and copper tlius  attached  form a galvanic pair  of whicli tlie  copiier rod is tlie negative clement  it is  thus not only preserved  from oxidation   but tlie negative oonditioii of the iioint  may aid its action on tlie positive electric   ity of tlie atniospliere  The practical ob   jection to tlie eo i  er rod has lieeii tlie higli   price of tlie metal  but this objection is  obviated liy you  by making the eopiK r  into the form  of a tube  Since it has been  fully demonstrated that it is only tlie sur
