VERMONT WATCHMAN & STATE JOU11NAL, WEDNESDAY, JULY 7, 185)7. AGRICULTURAL. Strimbcrrlcs for Mnrkct. It cortalnly docs not pny woll to grow Btrnwbcrrica for mnrkct iu Ihc ordlnary way. You tnlght mnko n ccnt n qunrt or lcss, but that hardly pnya.

Thia ia an cxnmple of tho vnlue of intelligence. Aa we said Inat week, tho man who uaea hia intollect ia tho man who will auccecd. It ia tho man who reada, who thinka, who plan8, nnd who usea good judg mcnt who will gct on in farming in tho future. He muat work, but it ia tho man who worka wiaely whoae worktella the moat. A man with a mnchine nnd & horae or two can do vastly more work than the mnn alone. That mnchine ia tho product of braina, intcllect, intelli gence, nnd tho mnn who uscs tho mn chine mnkca hia horae do what he onco would hnvo had to hnve dono or hired done by bnnd. Mind muat come to the front in fnrming, nnd the mnn who haa the beat mind nnd uaea it the best will make the moat aucceaaful fnrmer. Lntc Forage Crops. Most fnrmcra gct through haying about July 20 to 30. Then thero is time to put aome forage crop, but few know what to put in bo late. Few Vermont farmera care to sow turnipa, it i3 too late for millet or Ilungnrinn, and they do not know whnt elao can bo put in after July 20 or August 1. A late bulletin of Cornell Univeraity Ex periment Station givea eomc moat vnl uable information on thia poiut, It suggeats a new late forage crop, pca8 and barley. Wo had intended to aow barley and rye, but did not suppoao peaa would do well whcn eown bo Into. It Bcems, howovcr, thnt they will, nnd thnt we cnn get a lnte forage crop by Bowing pena nnd bnrley nfter tho mid dle of July.

Each of thcao will mako dried fodder of tho very beat quality, and when grown upon land flttcd in properBhDpoforcorn,willyicld'immenao cropa. Threo tona or moro to tho acro of dried fodder ia not an unuaunl crop and thoro ia yet nmplo timo to grow a full crop of either of tho above-namcd plants. Tho millets bcing eapecially hot wenthor nlauta do not need to bo aown under any circumatanceB unlil the flrat of July, and oata or narloy will havo plenty of timo to maturo bui- flr.lnntlv for fodder. TheBO cropa will not nuito take tho nlace of a eood corn crop, for that, when cured in tho ailo, is tho ideal cron of New Eneland. Tho ncreapo of reccnt vears should bo doubled and tho crop mainly grown by mnchinery. Tho next beat cropa nre those wo nnve nnmed, nnd every rod of land intended for corn or potatocB ahould bo at once aeeded to ono of theae crona. If theao cropa aro aown in auch a way aa to produco a maximum yield it will bo better to plow and aeed to graaa after tho cron ia taken oll than to un dertake to aeed with tho crop. A catch of errnBB can freauentlv be aecured with either of theao cropa when aown early in the seaaon and aeeded thlnly, but, except on very moist land, would not be advisablo now. Tho extra amount of fodder that can be grown without any regard to tho grasB crop will go a long way in tho expenBo of plowing and aeeuing later in the season when tho Btand of grass will be practically aasurcd. In farming, as in other mat ters, it is better to do one thing well than to half do two things, which flnds an application in this matterof growing forage crops. Wo havo Been a light vield of fodder and a poor atand of graaa in trying to nccompliah both at ono seeding, which will usually occur at thia aoason's Bowing, unleaa the land ia exceedingly rich or moist.
