Tho beets planted by Mullano &

well. Tim wind so far tins made no
porcoplablo Impression on thu plants.
Tho stand Is excellent. Thu sved
sprouted In two oi thrro days and
many wore up lu six duyn from date
of planting. Tim beets wero planted
with a New Model hand garden drill,
and the rows uro thirteen niwl twenty-
ono Inches apart, thut is two rows thir

As tho twenty-one Inches is Instiillsient
spaco to get n homo In conveniently
the next will be planted ten inches nnd
thirty respectively. '
Tho garden drill was net to run ibout
one inch and a half deep, and tho seed
cume llko magic, tho rows appearing
now like streaks of green grass ucruss
tho (loid. About ten pounds of seed
was used per acre, which Is too thick,
because nearly all seemed to sprout.
This is no objection, however, us the
hoo must bo used to cut out unneces
sary plants, Tho thinning procemt will
commcuco in a few duys, and from
present estimates ten days labor of ono
man will bo required to thin ono aero
A small portion of tho two ueres
planted April 21th was nccldeutly
flooded a fow days after tho Reed was
planted. In this portion the plants are
not so thick, but ample for a beet crop

The ground, which was practlcallynow
pralrlo soil, wus prepared by irrigating,
then plowing deep us plow would run;
then harrowed and planked down
smooth. Tho seed was put In tho
ground from tho second to fifth day
after last irrigation. A furrow, niado
by n single shovel plow, is nnulo lu the
center between thu rows thirty Inches
apart. Tho water Is allowed th soak
from this furrow to the beets. If tho
ground bakes much n small toothed
cultivator will bo run, tuklng out teeth
to skip tho rows on each nldo and let
