Ci 1 Hnrvestinff mnII Grains. written for The iifputiie. ith all tiiall srain crops especially It i necessary to liarvest them at the I rhzht time in order to securo them in the hot possible condition. A few day delay will not only ofti-n lower the quality of the grain, but ma terially Increase the loss In bundling. On thi.s account it is quite an item to make all the preparations posibl' in advance and then when the crowing crain has reached the best stnire push the harvesting as natch as jK-.ible. It ! also an item to leave the eultiva vated crops In good condition, "while the harvesting of the grain crops is being done. It is better to hire extra help be fore harvest begins anil have the culti vated crop clean of weeds ami in good tilth than to be obliged to hire extra help during harvest on their account. Overhaul the machinery and if any re pairs are needed have them made before the harvest work liegins, and if new ma chinery is needed secure It so that after harvest begins there need be no unneces sary delay. After a crop Is grown to maturity Jt Is good economy to use all reasonable pains to liarvest In the best condition. COMMERCE IH ST. LOUIS. STEAMBOATS. UPPER K18SISSIPPZ. DIAMOND JO LINE STEAMERS.

Xf the weeds ami grass can be kept down arsons tno cumvaiea crops umu the plants have made a sufficient growth fully to shade the soil, it will be much easier from that time on to give clean cultivation. Just how many times the cultivations should be repeated depends very much upon the growth and condition of the plants, and tho condition of the soil. There Is only one safe ride and that is to continue the cultivation until the crop can Ik? considered as made and the soli be left dean of weeds and ln good tilth. So far as can be done when the last cultivation J.i given the soil should' -be left reasQcably level, but flne and mellow. It is an exceptional case when it can be considered advisable to cultivate deep in giving the last cultivation. The , disturbing and breaking of the roots -that will be done If deep cultivation Is given at this time cannot but be ln- jurions to the growing plants. "While deep stirring of the soil at this time tends to dry out the soil more thorough- : ly. TVhlle occasionally deep cultivation may be best at first, shallow level cul tivation will nearly always bo found best in finishing up. i iSHT -' . - - 1 p a. I
