In potatoes, corn, etc.
However, no great accumulation
should be allowed In the barns If It
can be avoided, as It should be haul
ed promptly and spread on soma
If the manure Is so weedy that It
is objectionable, put In a large well
packed pile and let If heat. This
will kill the weed seeds but, of
course, waste some fertility.

the best places for a light coat of
manure Is on the wheat. It in
creases the yield of grain and makes
the chances for grass and clover
Another very profitable place to
spread the manure is on the young
grass and clover In the meadow.
Land to go in potatoes should be
manured before New Year's If possi
ble, and certainly a month ahead of
Late In the spring a good place to
put the manure is on thin places in
the pasture. This is after it la too
late to put on the land that Is to go
