THE MANAGEMENT OF WEEDS.
CIom Cropping and Thorough CnHlrn
tlon the Best Preventlyes Known.
Weeds grow less with every year of
cropping and thorough cultivation.
Constant stirring of the soil prevents
weed seeds from doing more than ger
minate. Killed at this early stage, bnt
little trouble is experienced. One of the
worst plant pests the farmer has to con
tend with is the Canada thistle. When
FLOWER SPIKES OP RAGWEED,
once his fields are infested, it is next to
Impossible to circumvent this foe, which,
however, in the garden, by constant
cultivation, is easily eradicated. Pre
vent all growth above ground. No this
tle root, nor any other perennial root
will live long without a chance to breathe
through its foliage.
The a anual weeds must be conquered
by destroying them before they perfect
their seeds. Numbered with the most
troublesome of these are purslane, chick
weed, wild mustard and the ragweed,
here depicted. Everywhere along road
sides may be seen the coarse, dnsty foli
age and dull green spikes laden with
pollen, of the tmsightly plant known as
ragweed in some sections and as horse
weed in otiiers. When growing in sa
nations where it is practicable to run the
mower before the flowera are sufficient
ly advanced to perfect their seeds this
will be found to be a good plan. Being
an annual, this method when through
will destroy the crop for another year.
Sheep will eradicaate this weed if pas
tured on the ground infested. In the
cut, reproduced from The Prairie Farm
er, is shown the flower spikes of rag
weed about one-fourth natural size.
As a substitute for patent weeders,
Greiner suggests common iron spoons
and broken case knives, properly ground
to an edge cn both sides and bent in the
shape of a curve. In fact, any small,
sharp edged tool can be utilized as a
hand weeder. ;
The instrument 6hown at the top of
the second illustration can be made by
any blacksmith, using an old spade han
dle and a piece of wagon spring. To
utterly demolish burdock, set this.cutter
about two inches from the plant at nn
angle of about SO degs. from the per
pendicular; with the foot press the cut-
ter down far enough to cut off the root.
Now lift the burdock by the hand from
its place and the work for that burdock
is done. This instrument and process
severs the roots below the crown, and it
will not sprout again. The blade of the
other instrument, shown at bottom, is a
wide piece of old wagon spring, twenty
inches in lergth, sharpened at both ends.
A block of hard wood, seven inches long,
is bolted to center of blade to hold the
wooden handle, forty inches in length.
With this implement one stroke is re
quired, and one can take out weed rocts
at a rapid rate. These burdock cutters
were originally illustrated by The Coun
Any white variety is marketable. The
rice variety is preferred by some confec
tioners, but the white tiint generally
sells as readily, and is a better yielder.
The cultivation is similar to that of
field corn, only it should be better than
that often given. The ground must be
in good order, as the plants are much
less stocky when coming' up than those
of other corn. Plant in drills about
three feet apart, and leave two stalks
every fifteen or eighteen inches. The
rice corn can be planted a little thicker
than this, but the flint grows a larger
stalk, and four stalks for each nine feet
of ground is about right
Buyers d not want pop corn less than
one year old, as it will not pop well any
sooner unless artificially dried. ' One can
raise from 60 to 100 bushels, of forty
pounds each, of pop corn on an acre, de
pending upon soil and variety. It is a
crop that pays big when one is able and
willing to wait for the right year to sell,
which comes once or twice in five years,
possibly oftener. Plant white flint, have
y pure seed, store the crop secure from
mice, and when it is a year old get . -e
names of seedsmen and leading confec
tioners in cities and write them, advises
Ohio Fanner.' '
