Dr. H. F. Freeman, of WilSOD, N

to his brother farmers in a ccmmuni
cation to the Progressive FAmer of
Raleigh, N. C. New is che time for
our farmers. says Dr Feeman, to be
gin to do all the plowing they can.
Where the land has mi c' litter on it,
or where it lay out 1ast year, these
lands should be b:oken now and again
You should remember that for some
years now our springs have been late
and the land wet, so it was bard to
get land broken in time. So look out
for the good days now and start the
two horse plows from six to eight in
shes deep, and where the land is rough,
pulver:zt it with harrows.
Now is the time to clean out ditsh
es and let off water so the land can
dry out thoroughly: This can not b
done to the best advantage just before
planting. Clean out, clear up and
keep clean every foot of space abiut
the home and farm now while you
It ycu have not already plowed up
your garden do so the first nice day
that comes. Plow deep and spread
broad-cast with any rough litter ma
nure you have on tt p af ter the plow
Do this twice this spring before plant
ing and you will have a good garden
if the rest is done as well.
Tnere are hundreds of little thigs
that you can do noff, which will add
wonderf lly to your success this year,
it you wl look out for them and do
them now wnile you have time. How
about the cow and call? What aro

And those sboats, which you expec.

them? Can you get to your hors- s,
cows, or hogs, without jumping from
place to place to kaep from goiog Into
the mud up to your sh -e-strings?
Where is the stove wood-ander the

Njw, my friend, you see all these
