Mr. D. R. Flepniken, of Winns

In reply to your inquiry in your
June Np., in reference to nyiy luerne
lot, I would state that the land is
rich. I have for the last four years
been workiing the land with the
view of bringing it to a high state
of! cultivation, by a op plouhing,
harrowing, and b;,.oadcasting .st ib e
and such other manure as I could
get. In the fall of 1877, I dei dod
to try lucerne on it. I then had a
fmne crop of cow pens 0-n it. I cut
the vines and put them away for
feed, and then scattered wvhat nia
nyure I had collected since spring
broad -cast, and broke it up wvith a
rsmall bull tongue. I then Lu'rned
it over with a twvo-horso Watt
plough, drawyn by two( latrgo strong
mules, as deep as they could con
v~eniently pull it. In tl~ie sanyo
furrow I followed with a one-horse
plough with a bull tongue QIg it.
You can form some idea how 4eop
it was, when thme beam of the poe
horse plough was almost all the
time below the surface of the
ground. I theon harrowed it with a
two-horse rotary harrow, both ways,
avbich loft ,tho )amd hi1tto a nic,oly
prepared gardeni bed. I thou sow
ed the snd, twoenty-fivo pounds,
and cross-sowed thoem, and harrow
(Id them in with a twvoIhorso rotary
b~arrivSept. 25, 1877. In a few
Anys I hada intifiul stand, and it
grow oft tanI~iy nad di not smm
to be injured by tho winter. Very
carly in the spring It hgan to grow,
anti was not at all troubled by the
weeds or grass. I began cutting it
Fobruary 28 0, an 1 have boon cut
ting it daily since, and boon fooding
two hurso, two oowys an1 eighit I
lhogs princ-ipally on it. They Cat it
in proforence to corn, cut oats or
I think it should be sown broad
cast. It has boon drilled by a
friond of inino hero, and ho has
abandonod the drill ani filled tho
spaeo, and ho acknowledges the
broadcast to bo the best. The
ground should be well prepared
nd well nivnurod, if it is expected
to (10 well.
I have inade five cuttings since
February 28, 1877, and the sixth
growth is just as vigorous'as any of
the otherv,, hnt we have had good sea
sons. I think I have eut at least seven,
and probably eight feet in height in
tho fivo cuttings on a averago
ovor the lot. For producing rich
milk antd butter, fa-t Cows and hors
Cs ar-1d ho.fs, I don't know any
green food that will equal lucerne.
Isowen broadast, during a good
r1in in M-iy, ono hundred pounds

been rocontly cut. and it scemed to
