ON Plow1.-Always have your
plow sharp. Never go to the tield with
an instrument which is not inl condi
tion to do good work. A good work
man may be thwarted by bad tools, and
dull tools are a good inleatiOll of a
lazy farmer. Remember that to plow
weli does not mean to turn over a clean
furrow; to do that may be well, but
that is not all. Good plowing is the
thorough pulverization of the soil, and
he wio can disolve an acre of ground
into the finest particles is the best
plowman, for he exposes the most sur
face to the seed which shall be sown.
'rhe ground can not be too flnely ground
up. Here lies the secret of fne crops,
so far as mechanical agency Is con
cerned. Plow an inch or so deeper
each year, and thus deepen your seed
bed and bring the subsoil into contact
with light and air for chemical opera
tions. You can never go too deep pro
vided you go slowly. ANever be in a
hurry at this kind of work. If you
have not the time to do your work
right, Just make the time. One acre
well plowed is worth two acres half
way done. Look out for those hard
places where the Instrument tries to
jump out. Stop; here is an enemy
that must be conquered, you must not
neglect it. These spots determine the
real from the artificial workmen. Try
it over again. If a rock, or a root, or
any other obstruction is in your way,
stop and get rid of it entirely. If it is
a rock, put it into a sink-hole. Never
let it bother you again. Dispose of it
at once. Do not ride on your plow
handles. Your team has draught
enough to overcome without your la
ziness adding fifty pounds. Riding on
the plow handles never does good work.
Stand square between the plow han
dies, arms so stilf that you mu-t be
lifted off your feet before the plow can
veer from its course. Then lift a little
on the handles, and you will do better
work and lighten the draught by twen
ty-live or f0ty pounds. Keep your eye
ahead of your team and turn every
inch. A bad workman covers, and
grain is lost. When done, take your
plow and clean it well aw put it tin
der cover out of the way of wet mo-ist
tire, which, like rot, soon destroys a
CUEcKINO TlEu POTATO DIs.:ASN.
Ai English farmer in an Englisli jour

are hot when one is ready to wash them,
and the grease is very easily removed,
