General RuIcj Directing the Plow. '
AL"'qucstion every season presenting
itself is whether to plow during thonll
or spring. This queslipnJnust be.an
SAcftbTin each' case accordingto thecal?
tendaht circumstahces. n a word, no
1 deirnitorulp maybe laid down by which
to govern euuer mo iimu or uiauuci ui
plowing, but each piece of land must
be considered by itself and broken up
at a season and in a style best suited to
its especal necessities, t To decide that
soil sliaH'be plowed spring or fall, dcop"
or shallow, without considering, tho
character of the soil, tho locality and
tho nature of the crop to bcgroitn, is
downr ght folly. ,
While judgment is required in th s
matter 1 of plowing, and every farmer
11 ust do ide many questions' for himself.
there exist some general rules that will ,'
a sist him in arriving at proper conclu
sions. "For instance, heavy clay soil
appears to require the alternate freezing
and thawings of .winter to pulverize it
Again, fields overrun, with weeds aro
benefited--by fall plowing.-which turns
under theso noxious growthstwith the
haulm o the crop before their seed ma
tures'., and not only destroys but forces
them to enrich tho land they previously
encumbered. Theoxposuroof injurious
insects to tho wcath r is another condi
tionmrging fall plowing. On.the other
hand,, light" sandy Jand, generally
speaking, is best plowed intho spring.
As regardthft problern 'of deep and
shallow plowing, that must bo settled
by the1 depth oftho soil and the char
acter of tho subsoili ' Land that is dry
with only a ew inches o' good soil calls
for shallow nlowinp while a dcen. rich

suitable fertilizers are applied to nut

Soils of,opposito character, as a still" c ay
anil slijinir sand, sometimes occupy the
rc'ation of surfaco and siib o'il to ea h
othej. When such a bndition exists,
deep cultivation that thoroughly incor
porates the two wiU'hurdly fail" to pro
duce a soil of enhanced al c Diver
soils having perjoct natural drainage,
respond favorably to deep ph w nj, as
do tho black, porous ami fertile lime
stone soils. Deep plowing is ill ad
iscd when a basin is formed below a
certain line, in which water will settle
and remain until it Can eseapo by
evaporation. Such soils require dr lin
age, ater which the plow ma' bo set
deep with advantage.
Shallow soils can and ought to be
deepened. 'J hese must of course. w h"ii
the subsoil is wortWcss. Le lightly culti
v atcd ' ntil the farmer is rea ly to gi' 0
additional la'ior and expense to their
improvement But so soon as ho can
pra -tico for a few 3-ears subsoillng and
'manuring, so soon will his shallow land
become valuable and increased crops re
pay for the extra opcnso of labor.
Where all circumstances arc favorable
to the 110 of a subsoil plow an increa-C
of crops follow, for the hard earth be
low the roaeh of tho ordinary plow has
Loen loosened This permits the ccapo
of the water which falls on the surface,
the circulation of air and a more ex
tended range for the roots of deep
growing plants, by which thev procure
additional nourishment and secure tho
crop against drouth. The benefits of
subsoil plowing are most apparent in
an impervious clay subsoil aiftl least evi
dent in loose and ieachv one.
From the foregoing it w 11 appear to
tho parcful rea Icr that ,th n sods with
poor subsoil must be' plowed shal'ow
unless subsoilinjr and 'manuring are re
sorted to: that dccpfclav 'oams and
alluvial soil bear ,.ilccp plowing, andl
wet lands must uo drained previous to
deep plowing. The medium course
which is plowing from five to six inches
deep is exempt from the harm ul re
sults of the two Optronics.
On low or strong lands experienced
farmers give the profercnre to a 'urrovy
left on cdire exposed to the action of air
and harrow. On san ly or dry soil they
practice 1 at plowing, which tends 'o
consolidate the land. ENpericnced
farmers avoid breaking up ground that
is too wot. or runn'no: the plow through
ground too drv The effects iu either
cac are pernicious Su '"cient moist
ure ;s required lo cause the furrows to
fall loosely from the plow with no ap
pearance of packing and no lumps.
A1 . World.
Corn-Cobs as Fuel.
For several years 4here has been talk
about farmers' raising their fuel on their
own tarms. Prairie gra-s has been
bound in tight rolls, and used or grit
and flouring mills; cornstalks also
have, in severe weather", been con
siderably used as fuel, and give excel
lent heat
What is required is some liquid sub
stance, like tar, in which to dip some of
the strongest stalks, and put these in tho
centers 01 bund.es a 'co'. th ck and two
feet long. '1 he stalks dipped in bitu
men adhere to the others, and all are
pressed tightly together, and bound in
three places with ime wire. The sec
tio is are set up v ertieally in the center
oflarge Russia iron stoves. Burn'nn
onlv on the snrface, a sect:on of this
fuel will last four hours. When tho
surface is covered w th ashes it c in n'-.t
burn: hut-gently jog it till tho ashes
fall, and it burns again, and'so.on, and
I am convinced fuel prepared in this,
or some equivalent manner, will some
dav be in universal tie. ,
Meanwhile, wo" have corn cobs. There
j .-1 very important cons'ueration in 4
favor of home-raised fuel having the
qual.ties o' woody fiber, and not emit
ting t nwholesome gaes as do the vari
ous grades of soft coal abundantlv
mined 'in various parts of Iowa, and
generallv in use in factories, hotels and
houses throughout the northern Missis
sippi Valley. Indeed, the c,oft coals are
so repugnant to hea th and cofn'ortthat
most of the we'l to dtf and intelligent
busness men and fanncrsburn hard
coal, at double cost, conteqdjng that the
siiperiorsteadinp's o the heat and1 the
greater healt'ifulne s of "Ilia anarl-.
ments, more than' compensate' for then
price.
As a summer, or cooking fuel, corn
cobs hare the decided advantase, over
either hard, coal or softj that when a hot
lire js required in quicklime," ,it can bo
made.with orn-cobs in -otfe-fourth of
tho time required with so't coal the dif
ference bet ween nard coal and soft be

Moreover, corn cobs afford fuel that

breaking or hammeringto't t it ior ue:
and'eingof nearly mni orm size, -the
heat can be regulated jo almost any'
required degree, in stoves of good size.
It must .be added that the corn-obs
supplied bv shell ng the immense quan
tities o ' corn consumed in tho sands of
Northwestern towns about one third of
all that is raised are, no wall used for
fue' by the townspeople themselves, in
E reference to the coal they have new at

Biggs' port optic, 'Shutting ont tho day

Flanders to get in a ,rib-roaster which

which tho change was ctlecto I was not
exactly so ithing, and hence this down

stanco number "our.
But iggs still preserved his temper.
Indeed, it would not bo going beyond
the bounds of probability to affirm that
he now held within h s bosom tho com
bincd tempers of the biggs family of
twenty generations.
The professor wa3 rght It was a
distinguished exemplification of his
theory thus far. Encouraged by this
'thought, or by a des ro to expedite a
funeial in the Flanders family, I iggs
crawled to his feet again. 1 landers'

science, however, and Biggs sat down

But his temper had been wonderfully
preserved, itrhadbcon increasing ail

now lie had ehough'for an entire town

The professor's words had been fully
verified. If any ono had had any
donbt of the matter, her would have
been convinced could he havo heard

A reporter called upon the inventor,
who proudly cxhib'ted his latest' pet in
vention. Tho toy resembles an ordinary-pistol
ingener I size, but Is somewhat
smaller and lighter. A peculiarly a l
justed spring furnishes the propelling
pow'or and explodes the paper caps
used, the spring being rele sed by the
pull ng of an 01 d nar . trigger. Marbles
are the miniature cannon balls used
for ammunition, and they a e held in
place bv a second spring The distance
to which the marbles can be shot is
regulated solely byUhe strength of the
spring, but the in entorat present will
