SUDDEN DEATH OF A COW.
MR. BROWN:-I had a fine cow, eight years old, tough and hearty, who was apparently well dead. She lay in her usual position, as though at nine o'clock at night, and in the morning there had been no struggle. On an examination the stomach appeared blistered and highly inflamed, and the blistered part slipt off. There were no other symptoms to describe. Can you or Doct. DADD throw any light on this case? Bethel, Vt., 1855. A YOUNG FARMER. REMARKS.-We cannot enlighten you. Will Dr. DADD?
REMARKS.-The English Jargonelle, Dunmore, Louise Bonne de Jersey, Urbaniste, Seckel, Buerre Diel, Vicar of Winkfield, Winter Nelis and St. Michael, are hardy varieties. These should be on the quince, except the Jargonelle, Dunmore and Seckel, which are best on the pear stock. The Bartlett is a noble pear, and will do well, we think, if grafted on a hardy pear tree.
BOOK FOR FARMERS.
SIMON BROWN, Esq. :-Dear Sir,—I have a desire to study the science of agriculture, and request you to furnish, a small list of the very best primary works for me to commence with--say to the extent of from $10 to $25.
Several of my country friends wish a plain work on agricultural chemistry, and have spoken of Chaptal and also of Johnston. Please name the best works on that special subject. I am willing to devote my leisure hours for three or four years to a preparation for farming. I wish to understand the theory and the practice of true agriculture.

5. Is there any very late keeping apple which comes so near to the Baldwin in productiveness as to make it profitable for extensive culture? M. F. BASSETT. Ashfield, 1855.
REMARKS.—1 and 2. In addition to the four varieties named we would recommend the Napoleon Bigarreau and Black Eagle-the last we consider indispensable; the Early Purple Guigne is a good early cherry, and of course apt to be taken by the birds.
3. We should recommend as additions to the list of pears, the English Jargonelle, Beurre Diel, Glout Morceau and Winter Nelis.
BEST BREAD.-The best bread is that made of unbolted wheat flour. In some cases a small portion of white bread may be desirable, but the brown, after a short time, will be found more palatable, and conducive to a more regular and healthy condition of the system. It has been ascertained that even dogs cannot live over fifty days fed upon fine flour bread and water; when fed upon such as contained the whole or a large portion of the bran, they are found in no respect

4. The pear will not compare with the apple for bearing.
5. We consider the Hunt Russett to be the best late keeping apple. It is prolific, excellent, and may be kept through the year under favorable circumstances.
TO MAKE FINE PANCAKES FRIED WITHOUT BUTTER OR LARD.-Take a pint of cream, and six newlaid eggs; beat them well together; put in a quarter of a pound of sugar, and one nutmeg, or a little beaten mace-which you please, and so much flour as will thicken-almost as much as an ordinary pancake flour batter; your pan must be heated reasonably hot, and wiped with a clean cloth; this done, spread your batter thin over it, and fry.
