J'lowinif with Dynamite.
One of the latest methods of loosening
the earth to a depth of two or three feet
and allowing the absorption of considera
ble moisture in periods of drought is by
the use of dynamite electrically fired. The
inventor of this ingenious tilling of the
soil drills holes ttvo or three feet deep and
five feet apart, making 1,000 to the acre.
In each hole is placed sufficient quantity
of the explosive, connected with a wire
leading to the battery, and after the earth
is tramped down the whole is discharged
by a spark. Yankee Blade.
