The Disk Harrow's Special Place.
The disk harrow will pulverise land
which li would take much more work
lo pulverize with the smoothing bar
row; especially cloddy land or thai
with large numbers of grass root tufts
or sods. Il is also of great value when
run over laud before plowing, in cas
es where the laud is so hard that il
will break up in large clods when
plowed without disking. Tho disking
of such land one way and then at
right angles to the direction of tin'
Hrst disking, will reduce, very great
ly. the size of the clods, which other
wise result from plowing land when
dry and hard.
The chief use of the disk harrow is
in pulverizing the land alter plowing
preparatory to seeding, and rigid

our present cultural system. The
running of a disk harrow, and (hat to
In' followed by a smoothing harrow,
after the land is broken and before
planting, will do more to economize
the labor of after cultivation and to
Increase the yield of the crops than
anything else we can suggest. The
reversible disk harrow will also save
much time and money in the making
of the beds to which our planters are
so thoroughly wedded. If the bei

Does it Pay to riurker Corn'
On rich land. during favorable
moisture conditions, if the corn is
planted too thin, there is a decided
tendency in some varieties to pro
duce these suckers or branches from
the lower joints of the main stalk,
There is some difference of opinion
as to whether It pays to remove these
suckers or allow them ?<> grow, If
weather conditions could be foretold
and it could he known that later in
the season the stalks already on the
ground would not have more than
barely sufllclent moisture and plant
food, it would possibly pay to remove
these suckers. On the other hand,
if the corn is not thick enough to
utilize all the moisture and plant
food available ami these conditions
remain throughout the growing en
son of the crop, then it will not pay
to remove the sinkers, for while the
yield of ears from them will be small
their presence will probably not les
sen the yield of Die main stall s and
the stover will be worth something
If saved for forage.
In view of these uncertainties, the
cons usus of opinion among experi
menters and close observers is that
it docs not pay to spend time ami
labor removing these suckers, taking
one year with another. It must lie
admitted, however, that probably the
majority of farmers believe it best
to remove them. Raleigh fN. 0.)
