Your sets ready, lay offyour furrows 2 or 3 feet apart, then drop the sett 10 inch es assunder, cover them about an inch with long manure and then turn a furrow about three inches over that so as to gite the sets a covering of about four, inches. If yoa have not a tufficiency of ttable or barn-yard manure to allow gene rously manuring them, eend your carts to your wiMtds and make up the deficien cy with moult, leaves or pine shatters, mix these up with your manure, taking Cure to add to each twenty loads of the mast ten bushel of athra and one of plafter, incorporating the whole together well.
