In his useful little manual on potato
culture Mr. T. B. Terry, or Ohio, call,
attention to the use of bushel boxes for
handling potatoes. He nays:
For several year, I have been rising
bushel boxes for marketing early pota
toes while tbe skins slip, and for han
dling the crop in the field all through the
season. This is one of the ways in which
the potato specialist can get Rhead of the
mall raiser. I think we handle oar crop
for let than hnlf of what it used to cost
na before we got these boxes made. Oar
boxes are 13 inches by 19, and 13 deep,
all inside measure. - They were made a
little deoper to allow for shrinkage. The
ides and bottoms are made of three
eighths staff and the ends or fiveifjhths.
Hand holes are cut in the ends as ehown
in the cut.
The upper corners are bound with gal
Tanized hoop iron to make them strong.
The price paid for them was from f25 to
$30 a hundred at a box factory. The
wood used is mostly whitewood. Some
light wood should be used, of coarse, so
as to make them as light as possible.
They need not weigh more than six or
even pounds. Early in the season.
BUSHEL BOX WITH BAND IIOLKS.
while the skins slip, our potatoes are
dag and laid (not thrown) into these
bares, and the boxes are covered as fast
1 as filled. They are then safe from sun
and rain nntil Wnnred fur trmrlrnf Tlia
cover, are simply pieces of boards cut
aooat 13 oy lis incnes.
At the end of the seasou, when the
boxes are filled for the last time, they may
be carried down to the cellar and stored

uinraeuug winter apples man in tuene
bushel boxes. Aain, in the spring they
are Just the thing to have the seed

to the field in.
When potatoes are drawn in bulk and

woes over, save soine hard work. An
ordinary farm wimm trill huniiv amr
mora than forty bushels, perhaps not

road, are good a team can often draw
fifty or sixty, if the wagon could be
uiaue to noitt so many conveniently.
In the illustration is shown a top box
successfully nmd ami
Terry. It is no higher to lift over than
. a common top box; it can be taken off
or pai on in a minute, ana on a ten foot
wagon box it will hold about sixty-six
bushels of potatoes, or two tons. It is
very useful for many other purpose be

A Nw Departure In Enslla,.
To Mr. T. D.Peterson, of Wolverhamp
ton, England, the inventor of the roller
process for pressing ensilage stacks, is
due the invention of a new method of
heating green forage or grass when
placed in silos. It is that of exhaust
ing the silo of all air when in the coarwj
of filling by an exhaust fan placed rut
side, and worked either by hand or other
power. A connecting pipe pasties from
the inside of the silo to the fan, and the
ralve on th. pipe is open when the fan
is at work.

Carol Hint That Will Assist In Hasina;
Tint and Labor.
In ronst sections of the country tha
netting of fence and other small poets is
nearly done away with, for the reason
that they are and can be more quickly
driven. In soil subject to heaving by
action of frost heaved posts are also
easily redriven to their original depth,
which cannot be done with poets that
are set and have blunt ends. Farmers
also have learned tnat, nine times in ten,

The Incraaaad Vfwi of Digging Harrow.
There is a belief amonx some farmers
that the increaned use of the new diggers
and cutting harrows is to be condemned
because snch tools lessen the uae of the
plow and lead to shallow tillage. Rural
New Yorker, with a view to deciding
tho true nse of digging harrows, invited
correspoudenc on the subject from lead
ing agriculturists. The replies elicited
made apparent the fact that the charac
ter of the soil, the seasou and the crop it
self all have something to do wih deter
mining the depth to which the soil should
be stirred. Professor Cook favored the
plan of plowing in the fall and harrow
ing in the spring. T. H. Hoskins, of
Vermont, does tiot want deep plowing
and has used the catting harrow with
great satisfaction. H. H. Wing, of
Ithica, believes that the deep working
harrows may bo ased in place of the
plow in preparing stubble ground on
light friable soils for oats and barley. E.
Davenport, of Michigan, regards "these
cutting harrows as a great advance on
other devices for firming the bottom of
the seed bed and for fitting soil for coru.
The journal quoted from says: ''It is
quite evident that unilor certain condi
tions the digging harrow may be osed
to save a great deal of work."
