-which if there is sulllelont rainfall,
took away with deep plowing wbut
moisture had been conserved in thc
soil. Where the land wan plowed
deep in the full, you will find utmost
universally splendid otnnds and ev
erything in good shape.
"You should plow deep in thc fal)
and at any rate before Jan. 1G. ir
after then, you take tho risk of a
drouth, and If you get it, you IOBO your
moisture Deep plowing la absolute

"Tho danger of deep plowing In the
