Watering Wl&Bte In the Summer.
Plants growing in tin open ground and
fully exposed Co the sun, are frequently
ruined by the very means taken to save
them?by watering In hot, dry weather.
Generally, merely the surface of the
ground is wet, and the moisture soon
>v^*ftales, leaving the soil dry and hard
., ?almost Imprevioua to air as well as to
the dews. But this is not the only, nor
the greatest evil which results from tho
ordinary slight waterings which plant?
get. The temporary, superficial moisture
causes the roots to Beek the surface, where
in the intervals between the waterings,
the bent and drought destroy them, and
the plants become stunted or die outright.
The remedy lies in a more thorough irri
gation and in a different mods of applying
the water. In the ease of young trees
and large herbaceous plants, the best
way is to carefully scrape away the soil
around them to the depth of an inch or
two, forming a shallow basin into which
sufficient water should bo poured to mois
ten well the ground 'as deeply and as
widely as the roots extend. When the
water has soaked in, the dry earth should
be returned, which will prevent a speedy
evaporation. Among small plants, which
can not be treated in this way, make
holes With an Iron rod or a sharpened
stake several inches in depth and fill
them with water which will thus reach
the deepest roots. Rural Carolinian for
Precautions Agalnot Drought.
As drought is one of the greatest ob
sticles with which the Southern farmer
has to contend, too much thought can
hardly be given to the subject, with a
view, to counteracting its disastrous effects.
We cannot, by any means now known,
prevent the dry and heated terms to
which our climate is subject and we
again call the attention of our readers to
the importance of securing, so far as pos
sible, such conditonsof the soil as will
in the highest possible degree fit it for
the absorption and retention of moisture.
Careful experiments should be made
with a viewto determine what are the
best means to enable our crops to resist1
long continued dryness. Suit, as a top!
milreeaing on dry sandy land, b one of the
in cans within our reach to mitigate the
aridity. * J.VJ. Mechi, speaking of the
value of salt as a top dressing for such
land, cays: "About five oclock one fine j
summer's morning, I noticed that where
the the salt had been sown the previous
day, every grain of salt had attracted to
itself the dew, and formed on the surface
of the ground a wet spot about the size
of a sixpence, the ground being generally
very dry.1' Rural Carolinian for June
Planting Sweet Potatoes Slips, or
It is well to take advantage of a rainy
day for planting if you can, but plant
whether it rains oi not. We have plan
ted: id the midst of severest drought with
the lofs of very few plants. "Grout" the
the plants bp plunging the roots into a
batter composed of equal parts of fresh
cow-dung, wood ashes and vegetable
mould, mixed with water to the proper
consistency to adhere to them. This
will generally insure a perfect "stand,"
and hasten the growth of the vines. A
good crop of potatoes will "help out"
wonderfully, and there is no reasonable
excuse for not having an abundance of
them.?Rural Carolinian for June.
A small boy arose at a Sunday school
concert and began quite glibly:?"A cer
tain man wpnt down from Jerusalem, and
fell?and fell?" there his memory began
to fail him, "and?and?fell by the road
side, and the thorns sprang up and
A would-be wit, strolling into a bank
the other day, walked up to the couuter
and addressed one of the spruce-looking
"Are you the teller?"
Well* whet do you toll?"
"I tell people who have no business
here to elear out."
