NEW WELLS. BAPTIST CHAPEL.—The Sunday school anniver. sary was held in ttie above place on Sunday, July 24th. The weather was all that could be desired, and both the afternoon and evening meetings were largely attended, great numbers failing to gain admittance in the evening. Everything passed off very satisfactorily, the recitations and dialogues being given in excellent style, under the superintendence of Mr Edward Woolley, High- street, Newtown, who filled his place with his usual ability. Mr R, Jones, Aberbechan, conducted the singing, for which he deserves, with those who assisted, the best thanks of the church. Mr J. E. Jones, Cwmdockin, presided at the harmonium. The afternoon meeting opened by singing an hymn. The following excellent programme was gone through:— Recitation, 8th chapter of Matthew, Percy Snead; prayer by Mr Woolley singing 327 Sankey recita- tion, 'Where is your boy to-night?' Willie Powell; reci'ation, J. Pryce singing 760 Sankey recitation, God is good,' Bertha Ellis; dialogue, The two Sabbaths, Jennie Williams and M. Gwilt; singing 311 Sankey; recitation, Lizzy Lewis; singing 211 Sankey; recitation, Don't you know the Lord,' Nellie White address by Mr Woolley singing 329 Sankey; recitation, The heap of hay,' Nellie White; anthem, 'Give unto the Lord,' Choir. The evening meeting commenced by the singing of an hymn. The following programme was also given:- Recitation, 55th chapter Isaiah, Percy Snead; prayer by Mr B. Kinsey; singing hymn; dialogue, The joys of heaven,' P. Roberts, J. Davies, and J. Roberts recitation, 'He never says good-bye,' P. Snead; singing 310 Sankey; dialogue, 'Providence.' A. Bebb and J. Williams; solo, 'The hand-writing on the wall,' Mr W. White recitation, Jeus shall come,' P. Snead; singing 329 Sankey dialogue, 'The beautiful city,' Jennie Williams, Lucy Reese, and Polly Gwilt; anthem, Sin ye Jehovah's praises closing address by Jennie Roberts; anthem, Exalt Him, all ye people' The collections were good, in excess of former years, for which the church wish to tender the warmest thanks to those who contributed, and to those who showed their hospitality in entertaining the strangers and last, but not least, to Mr E. Woolley for his services.

THE FARMERS' CIRCLE. (BY ONE WITHIN IT.) Mr R. Gilbert, a resident of Burghley, re- cently exhibited some enormous tomatoes. Six weighed no less than 10lb. el Samuel Clarke, a herdsman employed at Bushey, Hertfordshire, has been seriously injured by a bull. He was attending to tho auimals in the stables when one of the bulls savagely attacked him, inflicting terri- bly inju i s. Fortunately, he managed to crawl from the stable iu a semi-conscious state, and was found lying insensible, the bull in the meantime attaching him with considerable fury. Clarke's injuries are of such a nature that fatal results are feared. HOW TO DEIIORX. Horns on my cattle are a thing of the past. Every calf I raise now is treated A'ken a week or so old, and the horns are ki.lei. I get a stick of caustic potash at the druj* store throw the calf on iti side, so as to hold it easily, and wet the hair on a spot the size of half a dollar over the embryo horn, and then rub on th3 potash thoroughly. When I began using the potash I did not rub it on long enough, and 1 got ono or two one-horned animals now I rub till the hair comes off and the blood begins to start through the skin, and it represses the horns effectually. I would not use any liquid preparation of potash, as there is danger of it running down where it is not wanted, or being spilled by a sudden movement of the calf. I never tried the liquid but once, and came near putting out an eye. Be careful not to get the stick potash on your fingers; wrap several thick- nesses of paper or cloth around it. The dehorning of grown cattle is a simple pro- cess takes but a few seconds if the cow is properly fastened, and I do not think it very pi inful, for the cattle begin to eat as soon as the horns are ûtf, and cows do not shrink in their milk at all. 1 dehorned the first week in June a liolstein that was boss of the herd, and from being kept in a small lot h d become entirely too handy with her hoins, opening gates and doors. Since her horns were taken off she has been a most pre per and respectable cow; the smallest heifer in the herd makes her walk away from her feed, or drives her where she pleases. The saw is much better, I think, than nippers; the latter is liable to crush the bone and prevent healing so quickly. The only application we made after sawing was to fill the cavities with wheat flour, and, although it was hot weather and fly time, the wounds healed over in a few days. A SECOND HAY CROP. There is yet some hope that farmers may be able to lay in a fairly abundant store of fodder for the bestial requirements of the coming winter. The hay crop was, generally speaking, under an average one in bulk, if not in quality, and its diminished appear- ance in the stack yard gave rise to feelings of discomfort amongst stock owners. Recent rains, however, have amended matters some- what, by encouraging the growth of after- math, as well as of permanent pasture grass The permanent pastures are still unusually bare in many parts of the country. The rains have been very partial; in Monmouth- shire, for example, there has scarcely been, a drop of rain for two or three weeks. And where there has been no rain-which for- tunately is the exception—there has been little or no growth. In the midland counties and northern counties, a splendid crop of aftermath is springing up. It is almost as rank as the first crop in districts that have lately been copiously refreshed which districts, as it happens, reaped a relatively poor crop of hay. This simply implies that the rain was too late in coming, and that the first crop was more affinitively the produce of the season than the soil. It would be well in sutih. cases to take a second crop from the hay fields if possible, especially if the land is in good condition. We mean, of course, a second crop where clover and annual grass are growing, and not from fields under permanent grass. This would eke out the deficient hay crop, without making any great additional strain upon the soil. For the two crops would be little if anything more than would be carried to the stackyard from one cutting in a very good hay year. There is just this probability that the second hay and corn harvests may come together and perplex and hinder the farmer and his assistants, but clashing can be obviated in a large measure by getting the harvest hands together a little earlier than might be necessary for the cereals only, and having the second hay crop removed before the corn urgently demands attention. SEASONABLE SOUNDS. The whir of the reaper precedes the fusil- lade of the sportsman's gun this year in something akin to seasonable order. Har- vest operations are in full swing in some of the earlier districts of the South. Both wheat and oats are falling freely, and they seem to bulk fairly well in stook. The weather for several days past has been highly favourable for the joyous work. We are informed that a commencement has been made with grain cutting in the county of Renfrew, which is the first we have heard of beyond the borders, but crops are ripening nicely in the seaboard districts of the North. Bright weather would bring even the later crops sooner to the reaper than in many recent years. Thickly-planted cereals are ripening very rapidly-much more so than thin corn. This is a point worth noting, becauee anything that tends to accelerate harvest in an uncertain climate is of paramount importance to farmers. And, moreover, better grain is generally obtained from a thick than a thin crop. Thin corn not only ripens more slowly than a thick crop, but is relatively inferior in the quality of both grain and straw, from the very cause of its lethargy, viz., the larger available food supply in the soil. It is natural to suppose that there would be more available nourishment "per head" of a thin brop than of a thick one; and, this being so, growth of straw is prolonged
FLORILINE !—FOR THE TEETH AND BREATH.—A (rw drops of the liquid" Floriline" sprinkled on a "let tooth-bruah produces a pleasant lather, which thoroughly cleanses the teeth from all parasites or impurities, hardens the gums, prevents tartar, stops decay, gives to the teeth a peculiar pearly. whiteness. and a delightful fragrance to the breath. It removou all unpleasant odour arising from decayed teeth or tobacco smoke.

without any material advantage to the crop or the soil. Yery essential indeed is it that farmers should know precisely when the grain is at the proper degree of ripeness I for cutting. Wheat and oats may be cut as soon as the straw gets yellow, whether the grain be perfectly matured and hard or not The grain of these crops will rioen. as has been indubitably established by experiment, from the nutriment of the straw after the crop has been cut. This confirms the belief that it is wise to cut early rather than late. A good crop may very easily be lost by leaving it exposed to wind and wet on the stalk, when it might have been trusted to perfect its maturity in the stack with impunity. Barley, on the other hand— especially malting grain—should be thor- oughly ripe before being cut. It cannot he too dead before it is reaped, provided the weather is bright, clear, and calm but wheat and oats should on no account be allowed to reach the last degree of ripeness on root. A roaECAST OF THE HARVEST. Owing to unfavourable conditions, over which the farmer had no control, autumn wheat seeding was generally late, and the area devoted to the crop was considerably curtailed, the young plant not having be- come sumdently established in the soil to enable it to withstand the changeable and seveie weither subsequently set in; hence the alteinate changes of frost and thaws threw out and destroyed many of the plants. Many fields were ploughed up, and were resown with other cereals some were allowed to remain with the vain hope that they would eventually fill up, but in many cases the hope was not realised. In some districts spring wheat was sown, but the results were not satisfactory. The cold, late spring retarded agricultural operations and checked vegetation, hence the cereal crops generally were in a backward state until the last ten days of May, during which period the high temperature and genial showers produced a sudden and magical effect on vegetation. The season through- out has been remarkable for sudden changes, and an abnormally low range of temperature; the rainfall has been erratic. South of Leicester and extending through- out the counties of Hants, Wilts, and Dorset to the South, both pastures and cereals have more or less suffered from drought, whilst the North, Midland, the Border, and Lowland counties of Scotland have had copious rains. In the Midlands own to date on all clear, dry nights we nave seldom escaped a frost of more or less intensity. -.Pastures: The late spring made a heavy inroad on the supply of fodder, and on most farms there was a considerable reserve of old hay on hand, the whole of which had in many cases disappeared before the generality of pastures were sufficiently advanced to afford a bite for the stock. To the dairy farmer and stockfarmer generally the winter was a trying and costly one. y y Store stock, though considered low at Michaelmas, paid nothing for wintering, and their value at May-Day had not in- creased; those who had milk contracts run- ning were pretty much in the same plight. -The, Hay Crop Owing to the late spring and general scarcity of fodder many of the mowing grounds were pastured until May, and the subsequent low temperature and frosty nights retarded the growth of the grasses; hence the hay harvest is late, and as is generally the case at this season the weather has been catching. Grasses grown under the sunless sky are never of high nutritive quality, and the crop of the present season is no exception to the rule. The area under hay is slightly below the average, and the produce per acre we estimate at 25 per cent. under an average crop.- tVheat The showery weather during the greater part of July has tended to lengthen the straw of the late wheat; the crop is gener- ally thinly planted; the straw weak and varied in length. The shorter straws carry a short head containing only a few ill-fed kernels, presumably due to two causes-one the inferior quality of the seed and the other the cold, ungenial spring and early summer. The ears, where fully matured, are narrow- chested and the rhizomes wide set, and the present appearance favours the assumption of a large percentage of trial corn. Under the most favourable conditions as to weather the yield cannot be less than 12 per cent under an average. So far the crop shows no symptoms of attacks either of insect enemies or disease. We have not known so large a quantity of old wheat in the hands of farmers for many years.-Barley: The peculiarities of the season were on most soils uugenial and adverse to early sowing, an essential attribute to fine quality, and the dull, sunless summer is not condu- cive to the production of a bright, thin- skinned sample. The crop has much im- proved since the recent rains, and with favourable weather may probably reach within 6 per cent of an average crop.- Oats: The crop is varied: on rich deep loams the yield will be an average, while on thin soils in low condition the crop is very deficient. Generally, we estimate the crop at 8 per cent. under an average.— Beans: The winter varieties suffered from the severe winter, whilst both winter and spring varieties were much injured by the summer frosts. We estimate the yield at 15 per cent. below the average.-Peas: This crop has escaped the many insect enemies to which it is liable, though it has suffered severely from the continuous low temperature and sharp frosts. The yield will be 16 per cent. under the average.— Swedes: The early sown crops in general look remarkably well, the liberal use of artificial manure having carried the crop satisfactorily through the early stages of growth. The later sown varieties have suffered from the low temperature, but the recent rains have much improved their appearance, which now generally indicates 10 per cent. over an average crop.-Cattle The late spring, combined with a meagre supply of hay of an inferior quality, entailed
a large expenditure by the stock farmer on purchased foods. The cattle were turned on the pastures before the grass had made a sufficient start to afford a bite, which occasioned until a late period the use of supplemental foods, of which for fattering and store stock decorticated cotton cake is the most suitable. A large percentage of the store cattle are of an inferior class, for which there is little demand, and prices rule low. In a few pastures only was there a full bite until the middle of June. Owing to the cold nights a nd sunless days the usual quantity of meat has not been made. For young ripe animals of moderate weights there is a slight demand at slightly improved prices, and they will always command top prices.-Slieep and Wool: Store sheep have been difficult to dispose of, and pricas are considerably down from last year. The fall of lambs has been barely an average. The present appearance of the roots and forage! crops will tend to enhance prices as the season advances. The wool trade is firm at extremely low prices. Th,) labour difficulties have a tendency to disorganise manufac- turers and drive them to other countries, but nowhere can they find such suitable raw material as this country can produce. As I many of the foreign manufacturers prefer the purchase in the grease, this state of things and the introduction of the clipping machine may lead to a different system of har vesting the wool crop.- Dairying: The scanty supply of keep during the early summer affected the milk supply. Both cheese and butter have well maintained their prices, but every day makes it more apparent that if English dairying is to be successfully conducted, it must be on co- operative lines. Creameries and associated dairies are rapidly gaining ground. The new milk trade is depressed, and prices are extremely low. It is not in the large towns but among toilers in our great mining and manufacturing centres that the milk trade requires cultivating. -Horses: The various stud books have given a vast impetus to the breeding and improvement of all kinds of horses, and there is a healthy demand for good sound uniiuals at remunerative prices. —The Times.
