a break in your hands. All of these ca.

planter, comejust in the period when the
crop is iu its most ticklish state.. Aftei
the crop is ripe, it it is generaly cut dowr
about one foot from the ground,; With the
common siukle, although some persons
have lately begun to uise the scythe and
cradle, wfhich are found to excel the oths
in every respect. Afler the rice is cut
it is tied tip in a manner similar to wheat
and stancked in the field. After it dries, i

two rows of sixty sheaves each in length
the sheaves being laid aside by side witi
the grain end resting on the other; in thi
manner. it is beat with flails. One hand
can thresh out ten bushels per day. Afte:
it is threshed,it is sent to the city mills
where it is put in many mortars of stone,
and pounded with pestless, by means o
steam. In this manner is the chaff taker
off the grain, which is then barrelled and
sent to market.

SAVING SEED CORN.
MR. Eorroa:-In reading the Souther;
Cultivator for the last t wo years, I 'jer
ceive many invitations to planters to olie
their mite, [in their own: plain wvay,] o
agricultural tegts ainlexperignentsu to you
readers. Therefore I have concluaded a
1give you my plan of saving "Seed Corn'
'which, if you think there is any value ii
it, you are at liberty to publish:
First, I set aside a fewv acres of the bes
Icorn, withotit alloiving any blades'at rippei
therefrom for fodder, as seed corn. Se
condly, In the fall, after corn, blades an<
stplks have become perfectly dry, th<
largest'dars, and these from the most pro
lifio stplks, are selected, and put away ii
ashouse to themselves. Thirdly, In thn
sjiring, just at planting time, this corn il
takeri'61st,-amid shucked,'the best and thi
soundest'ears again selected, then broke:
mn two,;dnd theo butt end shelled, and Pu
in the ground In the ordinary way. My
reason for nol stripping the greetn blade
*frmn othe corn [think will be obvious
when it is reniemnbered,-that they afford si
'nuch lire and nutriment to the ear.
The only one I can offer for plantinj
the butt end of the ear is, the grains larg
'or than those of the small end, and fur
thor, "mnyfather'ljefore piw 'did 60." A
to the success of this plane my neighbors
who are also suabmeribers to the. Cultiva
tor, carr attest, wvho know me tol be soldon
without corn.
