OBSERVATIONS AND EXPERIENCES
OF PRACTICAL INTEREST.
Sena bta Directions That Will Lead to the
Rljlit Kind of riowing The Difference
Between "Cut and kver" Plowing and
Narrow Slice Flowing.
On any lun.l other than sod, plowing
Ktul tie ground may be done in a thor
ou l manner, on one hand, and super
ficially on the other. A most important
reqi ixite is thorough pulverization.
Some sowed crops have been nearly
doubled in preparation by repeated har
row rig, reducing the soil to a finely pul-

veri.wd state. Hut much of this work
may ho done by the right kind of plow
ing. Country Gentleman tellsthat farm
ers j re apt to hurry tho matter too much
in tl fir anxiety to push rapidly their
spring work. Their plowing is too much
like tho old "cut an.l cover" way. A
part of tho soil is never moved at alL It
lies solid and undisturbed, and tho nar
row furrow slice which the plow turns
up i ' thrown upon it. If this furrow
slice consists of clods, tho whole is in a
very jmr condition for receiving the
sooil l'ig. 1, whore tho horizontal lines
show the soil liiiiiistlirhcd by tho plow.
In direct contrast with this slipshod
work is tho complete mellowing of the
whole soil ly tho simple ami effectual
plo-u ing of narrow furrow slices. All
the toil, to tho full depth of cultivation,
b turned and crumbled Fig. 2, where
o-'.-w liing all tho soil forms a deeper bed

is much lottcr to plow off only five
x i.iclies from tho land than to try
ivo tho work so fast as to attempt
irn a ftxt and a half at a time,
ing narrow slices pulverizes the
e to tho full depth, and in this
zt does lxtter work than repeated
wings, which only mellow the
ce. Doth when combined fit tho
for tho seed in tho most perfect
ier, and make it as tine as an onion
At the Agricultural college of Michi
gan, whore experiments were made dur
ing tho four years from 1SS5 to 1;SSS, in
clusive, it is stated as the result of
planting with different amounts of seed
on five different plats, under the same
cond lions, that while there is a larger
average yield from the whole potato,
there is a much larger per cent, of small
potatoes. The next largest per cent, of
small jotatoes is found in tho one eye
plat, and tho smallest in the three eye
plat. Tho yearly and the total results
all g to show that a medium amount of
eeod is lx'ttor than a whole potato or a
otato cut to single eyes.
Tli3 whole potato produces too much
grow th altovc tho ground, and the one
eye loos not give quite vigor enough,
espen ially if the weather is unfavorable.
Then was a mark ed gradation in vigor
of frrwth from one eye up to the whole
potal o. Where one eye was planted the
potatoes came up very unevenly, and
some of them failed to grow, proving
(hat it is unwise to take tho chances of
secui ing a good crop from such planting.
Uule-is tbo soil contains a considerable
amoi ntof moisture the pieces will dry
befoi e they can send out roots, and thus
fail t - grow. In 188G, 9 per cent, of the
seed cut to ono eye failed to grow. The
beet! i injured tho ono eye plant more
than the others from tho fact that the
plant s wore not so vigorous.
The Ewe ami I.amh.
Tho following seasonable suggestions
aro furnished by Tho Farmer's Heview;
Thi) owes and lambs are benefited by
a frequent change of pasture and should
have it on every well regulated farm.
When the grass and the clover get ahead
of th ewe flock as they should be allow
ed to do, turn tho cattle in and put the
ewes on pastures new. It is a peculiar
and interesting fact that nature has ap
parel Xy fitted the different grass eating
animilsto crop the herbago at the sev
eral stages of its growth. Tho sheep is
a clot e nibbler, the cow takes a full wisp
at each bite, while the horse seemingly
is well satisfied with the tops. Freshly
grown grass, then, is the most palatable
and nutritious for the ewes, and they
thriva much letter upon such pasture
than on land whero they are continuous
ly confined. It is a mistake to suppose
that weeds aro good enough for sheep
and t hat hazel brush is all the relish they
require in such dieting.
Scours In Calves.
Calves raised by hand are apt to scour,
the e Torts of an ill treated Btomach to
rid it ;clf of cold or otherwise unfit food.
If whatever is given to a young calf bo
made as warm as new milk, much of
the d ingor of scouring will be avoided.
Cold milk is very difficult of digestion,
as is :dso uncooked meal of any kind. A
diet i :i part of tine oatmeal, cooked until
it swi-lls to four or five times its original
size, mixed with water and milk, has been
found better to make calves grow than
milk alone. One or two tablespoons of
meal stirred in water at the boiling point
is enough to make two quarts of por
ridge, and this cooled to milk warmth
with milk is bettethan an equal bulk
of m ilk alone. A raw egg can be added
once a day with great advantage.
That Tired Feeling;
Afflicts nearly every one in the spring.
The t ystem having become accustomed
to th': bracing air of winter, is weakened
by tba warm days of the changing season,
nd readily yields to attacks of disease.

IT REMOVED TOE PIMPLES .
Round Mountain. Tex.,March 29, '87.
A lady friend of mine has for several
years been troubled with bumps and
pimples on her face and neck, for which
she used various cosmetics in order to
remove themand beautify and improve
her complexion, but these local applica
tions were only temporary and left her
skin in a worse condition.
1 recommended an internal preparation
known as Botanic Balm which I have
been using and selling about two years;
she used three bottles and nearly all
pimplis have disappeared, her skin is
soft and smooth and her general health
much improved. She expresses herself
much gratified, and can recommend it to
all wbo are thus affected.
