about 900 pounds. Take 200
pounds of good acid phosophate,
which cost me $22.50 per ton, de

which cost. me, by the ton, $14 de

evenly on the manure. Take next

and distribute them evenly over
the pile and wet them thoroughly ;
take again 200 pounds of acid

upon a horse that he was taking to
pasture, and after she had ridden
about forty rods from home he
lifted her off the horse and told
her to run home. On returning he
found that the child had not reach
