The article in the May number oi
t.the Rural artolinian, reminds me ol
"theogood old timei" -when f''was a
frier-and, I may add, a incoessful
one--in vesten North Carolina.
I adopted there a rotation whiol
suo eeded admirable. I commenced

manure I could gather on the surface,

the *ed when' planted was not more
than two inches below tite - surface,
but quite deep enough. I cultivated

close to the corn with a small subsoil,
followed soon after with a cultivator.
Seoond plowing, subsoil again,..deep
but a littke off, (say -sit or eight in
ohes from the corn). I then used the
oultivitor as often as practicable un
til the corn was between three or four
feot high when I put the subs4il as
deep as possible into the coetre be
tween the corn rows. I followed up
with the cultivator and pabsed the
hoe through chopping oit.any weeds
or grass and leaving everything level
an din splendi#l order. This was
towards the middle or end of July, in
gLgThe laying by of the corn was im
mediately followed by the sowing of
the grass seed-olover, timothy, red
top or any other-ecatlered evenly
along the corn- rows. if we had a
rain within a day or two after sowing
the seeds, the work wasacoomplished.
If no rain, then a light brush was
dragged through each row by a, mule
)r horse, with a small boy to aide and
guide. A good walking around would
brush itr ten or twelve Bores per day. I
never failed to get a good stand ofgruss.

several-months, wilb toon make its sp.
pearance and grow finely, if not killed
out by the hot snn. Now the corn
offers all the pro.teotion from the sun
that is needed for the gr..ss when it
is young. 1y the time the blades are
fit for fodder, the grass, is strong
enough to take care of itself.
After the corn was githorod, (at
any time before April) I out the corn
etalks close to the surface with a
mover or a sharp hoe. If the grass is
to be converted into hay the first sea
son, the stalks trust be hauled. off ;
but if to be grbzed, the stalks after
obopping may remain. After the
corn stalks have been removed,, and
after a rain, when the soil is sufficient.
ly soft to admit the pressing 'in of the
corn stumps, the meadow must be roll.
ed. This may be done lato in spring
when% the grass is up several inches
high. The rolling will allow the
mower to shave very close.
By sowing clover on grass seed as
above, a full crop of hay may be so
onred the following summer-ten or
twelve months after seeding. To put
in gr.iss seed Pith small grain, the
yeung grass will be smothered out if
your oats or wheat is of thick and
luxerian t growth. Trho corn protects
from the sun, but does not in the
least smother the young grass.
Now for my rotation. I have se
cured a good stand of clover after my
corn. The clover is cut or grazed
off' in early sunmmer : a second crop is
allowed to for seed. When the
mtost advanced burs (say about one
third) turn brown, then put ia the
p low and turn everything under deep
ly. In fall or spring, plant wheat or
oats. After your small grain Is ta
ken off you will have quite a sprink
lin g of cover to turn under in the
etarly fall. Plant corn again in
spring, and give yourself no farther
concern about your stand of clever.
Work your corn well and lay it by
in nice condition ; your clover will
appear in due time. WVith the

crop ,of the season,) he will never have

in grazing off everything and return
