Effect of :Ianure on Soils.

nearly a clear s.,anl this eff. ct will take
place if sºone crop is. nti growing toere
"in, But rips on -atdy soils, in the
l-res-mnee of lmanure, eat out manure
%sry fast, anl hence this aplarent disap
pearaae of manure iQ accounted for. It
pg0is quickly into the crop if in a soluble
Loa:us and elays, on the contrary, take
up and hold manure indefinitely if not
accepted by crops. If occupied by crops,
it is given up, but all the constituents of
plant growth being present, the eating
ont of manure is not so quickly seen.
The reason why manure is more
quickly eaten out of sandy soils is that
they are more porous than clay soils and
hence more amenable to the action of the
oxygen of the air, and this action of ox
ygen upon any material liable to decay
is what renders such material to a state
by which it may be taken up by plants,
Hence, if the soil is clayey, long undi
gested manure will be indicated. It
tendsto render such soils more light and
porous. On sandy soils eiery means
possible should be use to render the soil
a" compact at possible, while the natu
ral y firm clay soils requaire the greatest
possible disintegration to render them
t he most proaluctive. Yet there should
always be a due relation to cnmpactness
in uany soil to reach the b st results.

How much are peaches? inquired the
Well, ma'am, eating peaches are $1.21
a basket. You want eating peaches.
No, preserving peaches.
Well. they are $1.1. I've only got a
few more baskets left. As it's you I'll
let them go for $1 apiece. How many
please, and where shall I send them.
I only wish one.
One basket! Why, you couldn't get more
than a couple of jars out of that. I1
you should get married before peaches
come around again and go to housekeep
ing you will need more than that.
I--I am married,
Married! Who'd a thought it. You
ain't out of your teens yet. Well, I'll
send one basket. What's the number?
Perhaps one basket will not be enough,
you had better send me four and one of
eating, was her reply as she handed out
a $5 bill and 2' cents in change.
Thanks, ma'am, said the dealer, and she
was gone.-lDetroit Tribune.
