GOOD CROP OF CORK.

Cemat for Little.
I am certain from several j ears' ex
perience that one of the essentials in
securing a good crop of corn is good
ed. I may say the other essentials
are a good soil well prepared in a good
tilth and thorough cultivation. Eat
with poor seed the best growth and
yield will not be secured even though
tho soil be rich and good preparations
and cultivation be given.
It is not only necessary that the soil
be of a quality that will germinate
readily- water reasonably fair condi
tions, but the seed must contain suffi
cient vitality tosend up a strong, vigor
ous plant. Unless this is done it will be
Impossible to secure a good, even stand
One essential necessary is a rigorous
grcwlh. The corn plant must make t
quick, vigorous growth from the start
and, while a rich soil prepared in a
good tilth is a great help in this, the
quality of the seed is the starting
Our seed is carefully selected in the
fall, carefully dried out and then stored
where it is certain to keep dry and at
the same time be safe from vermin. I
never shell until time for planting. II
the conditions are such as they should
be for planting corn, the soil sufficient
ly dry to work steadily into a good
tilth and then is thoroughly prepared,
there is no doubt but that a good, even
stand can be secured.
I have found by experience that it it
of no advantage to plant corn when
the ground is wet, rough or cloddy.
Better wait until favorable condition!
can be secured, and then if good seed
is used not only will a good stand be se
cured, but the plants will make a good
start to grow, and then with good cul
tivation can be kept growing. The
cost when a good crop is secured if
very materially reduced over that ol
a poor yield, so that it pays to take
reasonable care to secure the best
yield. X. J. Shepherd, in Farmers'

Orchard Grama for Jleadewa.
I have tried orchard grass as mead
ow and found it an utter failure un
der various circumstances and several
kinds of soil. This is also the experi
ence of other farmers. It is not diffi
cult to get a fair "catch," but the
plant has a habit of forming bunches
with bare spots between. When cut
early it makes harsh hay, if cut when
ripe it is coarse and stiff like ry
straw, and resembles broom sedge.
Stock will refuse to eat the hay un
less starved to it. It requires four or
fie bushels of seed to the acre at
a kigh price. From its early growth
I think it would make good perma

Wholesome food, composed of a ra
ried diet, and strict and thorough clean
liness, are requisites that no poultry
raiser can ignore at any season without
increasing cost and inviting various
ailments. They are health-promoters,
and the healthy fowls are the only ones
that result in profit. The winter re
turns from a well-kept flock of healthy
fcens, when all the proper conditions
are intelligently observed, will be very
neouraging and will prove there is
considerable profit in poultry keeping.
