According to the Boston Adver
tiser, a fanner on Tome Biver,
New Jersey, is tho first to prac
tise electrical inrming to any ex
tant, and with apparent success.
Utilising a stream that flows
through bis farm to the river, he
bun provided a copious supply of
electricity, with which be not only
irrigates bis farm, but works it
and lights it, PJoogbs, rakes,
harrows, mowers, and reapers are
all worked by electric motors, and
weeds are killed by dragging a
wire netting, heavily charged,
over the field. Electricity is
applied to plants in two ways
through the soil by means of wirec,
and by powerful arc lights, soft
ened by ambor globes. As soon
as tho seed is sown the electric
current is turned on the under
ground wires, and stimulation is
continued till the crop ie harvested.
By this mans production is said
to be increased 50 per cent, above
common methods. Flowers, vege
tables, wheal boads, everything
grown under the electric influence
is doubled in size. A drawback
about the ilowets is that they
soon fade and drop aftr blowing.
