Preparing l.un«l for Wheat.
A wheat grower of Orleans county, N. Y., makes the following suggestions iu a communication,.to tho Country Gentleman : In growing wheat there arc few things of more importance than a thorough preparation of the ground for the seed. Not only should it be well plowed, but thoroughly worked with the harrow and wheat cultivator or gang plow. The plow or cultivator must be used when the ground is hard. Summer fallows broken up early in the season, When the land was rather wet, may be dried down hard, and need plowing to again work up tine and mellow. But when land lias been recently plowed, and is not baked, the harrow and cultivator will put It in fine condition. There is great advantage in the fre quent use of a good harrow. It works land down into that tine, mellow, rather compact condition, that, while it is not in the least hard, is the very best state for wheat. It is much better than the loose, spongy condition, some times produced by too much plowing. When a tough sward is broken up after dry weather has set iu, in the summer, harrowed once or twice, and then cross plowed in August, the sod nat being thoroughly rotted, will in pieces of various sizes made up of a mass of dry roots and stems, be mixed through the soil, keeping it in a light huffy condi tion, not easily worked down, and in which wheat is more liable to injury from freezing out. Dry stubbles also often plow up loose and huffy, and liable to the same difficulty. The best remedy for this is frequent harrowing A good 18-tooth harrow will work down such lands into a proper 6tate better than anything else. Theu^ if after laying a week or two, the land needs more working, put on a good wheel cultivator, and work it up four or five inches deep, when another thorough liarrowing will make it in fine condition. A good roller will help m ahI’ ilnurn aiioK lmwl lud f nffont Sc not equal to that produced by the har row. It leaves tho soil looking very smooth and tine on top, hut don’t put it in ns tine nml good condition all through, for the roots to penetrate, as the harrow. When any sward is broken up deep enough to furnish a good seed bed in the soil turned up, there is seldom any advantage in bringing the sod back to tho surface. A thorough working with harrow and cultivator frequently makes a better preparation on tho sod than can be secured by cross plowing. This is especially the case when clover is plowed under rather late, or any sward is broken up after harvest. Then, as the sod will not be rotten enough to work tine, it is far better at the bottom of the furrow. It is also of some benefit there, holding the soil well together, while it prevents baking down on the subsoil; and, when plow ed in the proper direction, leaves room at the bottom of tlie furrow for the surplus water to work oil'. When a summer fallow Is broken up early, and is so rotten it can be worked down as fine, there will be less dif ference. Then cross plowing once or twice—twice is best—with sufficient harrowing, will make the land in good condition. Still, in such cases, the more harrowing tho better, for there is nothing like a good harrow to put land in the best condition for wheat. With shallow plowing, say four or five inches deep, this course is often the best, hut when broken up from seven to ten inches deep, as nearly ail good wheat land should be, ouce plowing is generally the best. August is the best time to manure for wheat. After land is brought into lair condition, so a good cultivation and liarrowing will make it all right for the seed, then apply from twelve to fifteen loads of well rotted manure per acre. This manure must be spread very fine—it should be so thoroughly broken to pieces and distributed that none will impede the cultivator or harrow. When well spread it is not only more benefit to the crop, hut saves time, as it costs more labor to be fre quently stopping to clear a clogged cultivator or barrow, and spread the bundles thus drawn together, than to thoroughly do the work in the first Manure, well rotted, docs the most good when applied in this way. If not well rotted, it must be plowed In, as coarse manure cannot ho well worked in with the harrow and cultivator. If partly rotted and plowed under four or five inches deep, with a rather nar row Asrcpw, turning less to the bottom, and leaving more between the furrows, it will do very well. Then a largo portion of the manure is near the sur face, where it will soon benelit the young whent. A leading object in surface manuring is to give the young plant a good start, secure a good i growth and strong root in the fall, and thus put wheut in the best condition to stand the winter and spring, and to finally make a good crop. It is also a great help in securing a good seedling to clover with the wheat. Coarse manure, plowed under a deep furrow, -can blTof little benejit in this way, and is of doubtful advantage at the best. If lightly plowed under, more or less will work out and interfere with subse quent cultivation, and may seriously obstruct the working of the drill. All ” manure should be so prepared aud ap plied as not to interfere with the oper ation of a good wheat drill. - gts^-ln this country at the preseut time, taxation by the Federal Govern ment alone, independent of State, county and municipal taxes, amounts to fully $14 u head—man woman and child—for the whole population. Take the case of a laboring man with a fami ly of live or six children, and It will bo sceu that he pays about $100 a year, which, on ou average, would be about a seventh or an eighth of his earnings. Five days he works for himself and family. The proceeds of the sixth are clutched by the Government. Yet workiugmen are asked to endorse the Uadieal party. OTBLHY’S AUVM TONIC. perfectly fteliaMe.

One box of ORTON’S PREPARATION is warranted to destroy the appetite for tobacco in auy person, no matter how strong the habit may be. JIf it fails in any case, the money will he refunded It is almost impossi ble to break off from the use of tobacco by the more exercise of the will. Something is needed to assist nature in overcoming a habit so firmly rooted; with the help of the Prepa ration there is not the least trouble. Hun dreds have used it who are willing to bear witness to the fact thatOuTo.N’s Pkkcaration completely destroys the appetite for tobacco and leaves the person as free from any ihsire for it as before he commenced its use. It is perm fcctly safe and harmless in all cases. The Pre paration acts directly upon the same glands and secretions affected by tobacco, and through these upon the blood, thoroughly cleansing the poison of tobacco from the sys tem , and thus allaying the unnatural cravings for tobacco. No more Hankering for Tobacco after using Or ton's Preparation! Recollect it is TTur ran ted! Beware of Counterfeits. RECOMMENDATIONS. The following are a few selected from the multitude of recommendations in our posses sion: [From W. P. Hcald, Esq., Bangor, Me.] Bakoor, Mb., April 24, 1808. I hereby certify that I have used tobacco for thirty years past, and for the last fifteen years I have used two pounds per mouth. I have made attempts to leave off at different times—I have left off one year at a time, but always continued to hanker after it until I used Orton’s Preparation which has com pletely cured me of the appetite for tobacco. 1 would recommend all who are affected with this terrible habit to try the Preparation, wiiich will certainly cure if the directions arc followed. W. P. HEALD. [From E. W. Adkins, Kuoxville. Term ] Kboxville, Tenn., Aug. 6, 1807 This is to certify that I had used tobacco to such an extent that my health had become greatly impaired and my whole system de ranged and broken down. In June, 1807, 1 purchased one box of Orton’s Preparation, and after using it I found that I was com pletely cured. I have not bad any hankering ration. 1 believo it to be all that it is recom mended, aud I would advise all who wish tc quit the use of tobacco to try one box of Or ton’s Preparation. E. W. ADKINS. (From John Morrill, Bangor, Me.) Banqob, Me., March 31, 1808. This is to certify that I have used tobaccc for eighteen years; have tried many times tc leaxe off, but have sufforred so much from a dizziness iu my head, and gnawing at un stomach, that 1 have soou given up the trial A short time sinoe a friend induced me tc try Orton’s Preparation, (sold by you.) ] have done so and am completely cured. 1 did not in the least hanker after tobaccc either to smoke or chew, after I began to use the Preparation.
