Tlic Foumintion of Agrlciiltuio,
Tho farmora of Vermont nro now
cngngcd in preparlng thoir lnnd for
crops nnd putting thcm in. Tboy la
bor under ouo dleadvantago which fnr
mota furtbor eouth bavo oxcmptlon
from in a groat moaBuro, tbo limo for
proparing tho eoil for crops is usually
vory shott, nnd tboro is a constant
tcmptation in tbo spring to noglcct
what is really tbo foundntion of nll roal
fiucccBs in ngriculturc, tborough prop
nrntion of the eoil. A grentdcnl of tbo
BUCCC88 or failuro of tho cropB of Ver
mont farmers in tbo comingsoason will
dopend upon tbc tborougbncBS of tbo
tillago beforo tbo cropa nro put in. In
tho cqbo of bocd crops n good denl cnn
bo dono by doop cultivntlou just nfter
plnnling, nnd thie ia elwnya to bo com
monded oxccpt undcr rnro conditlone.
But let overy fnrmor wbo rcada tbia ro
mombor tbnt tho flncr tbo soil, tho bot
tor tho crop. Or put in nnothor form,
tillogo is mnnurc. And this ia alngu
lnrly ovcrlooked by our fnrmera. Thcy
will go nnd buy oxpensivo fcrtilizera
nnd put tbom upon poorly propnrcd
lnnd, thus wnating good monoy, to say
notbing of tlmo epcnt usolcesly, and
tbo diBappointment nnd loss which aro
prctty suro to rcault. Try n eimplo ex
pcrimcnt: Tako n pieco of lnnd nnd
upon onc-balf of it put a good dreasing
of feitilizere, but do not harrow mucb
nor try to mnke tbo eoil flne. Prcpnre
tho otbcr balf for crops by tho moat
tborough tillage, that is plow wcll,
twico if tbnt will mnko tbo soil flncr
thon harrow all you think you can af
ford to, thcn harrow aa much moro, but
put on no fcrtilizera. Trent the land
tbo sarue in all other rcapoctB and aoo
whetber tillngo ia not manuro. Thcn
don't let up on tho cultivating of tho
corn and potatoca this ycar.
Puah the weeder nnd tbo cultivntor
for all they aro worth. Not deeply af
tor tho planta get up, but do tho deep
work beforo the cropa are put in and
boforo they como up.
It waB Jethro Tull in 1733 who Urat
nnnounced the valuo of tillage. His
book "New Ilorso Iloeing Huebandry"
is one of tho most valuablo ever writ
tcn in ite direct rcsults upon sgricul-
ture. In fact tbc niodcrn practical and
Bcientiflc world ia just coraing to appre-
ciate tho work of Jethro Tull.
It will bo a great day for the farm
era of this country when they plnco ns
grent vnlue on tho physical condition of
tho eoil aa they do on ita richnesa in
plant food. In truth tho former ia of
greatcr importauco than tho latter.
Good cropa cannot be grown on a hard,
lumpy soil, no mntter how rich it iain
plant food. For auch a soil cannot ro-
tain moiBturo, and moisturo or watcr ia
the baais of all plant growth. How
quickly hard lumpe dry up! And when
rain comes, tho lumpy soil does not
retain it, but lets it all ruu off. Then
tho incllow soil holda more air, and air
is of tho grcateat importance in plant
growth. Then the flne rootlots of tho
planta can go all through tho fino soil,
tboy can take lirm bold of tbo ground,
nnd all tho .procoBeea of plant growth
are bettcr carried on in mellow than in
hard soil. Therefore whntovor olso
you give your crops, givo them n flne
eoil to grow in. It will pny you n big
interest to spend timo in giving tho
soil n thorough preparation. Don't
think tho harrow is a tool of little con-
aequenco. If your land is hard and
.gets lumpy, mako a drng, woight it
wcll nnd wear down the lumpa as much
ae you can. Itemember tho flner tho
eoil, tho better tho crop.

swcct potato is considcred bo much

tbo North aa a rulo.
Thcro soema to bo an increaso in tbo
prnctice of tho lato plnnting of potntoca
in the North, and it haa its advantngca
nnd ita ovila. In tho flrst plnco, when
potntoca aro put in vory carly boforo
the ground gets warm, tho sced oftcn
spoilB as it haa in aomo aouthern atatea
already tbia yoar. If tho soil is wot
and cold, and does not warm up soon
after planling, thero will bo a failuro in
tho early planting. Thon it ia not eaay
to give tho soil the thorough propara
tion it necds whcro tho aeed ia put
in vory early. If tho land is plowcd in
tbo fall, then plowed again after boing
well harrowed in tho epring, say tho
last of April, then harrowed overy ten
days for six wceks, tho land will bo in
tho very bcst possiblo condition for
putting in tbo crop. Tho wocds will
have got diauouraged and givcn up the
fight, tho soil will bo very mellow and
just right for growing a good crop of
potatoes. This plan of twico plowing
and thon harrowing onco a week or bo
for sevnral weeks is ono of tho aecreta
of growing good crops. On somo soila
it will do aa much good na a ton of com
mon fertilizer per acre.
The objectiona to tho lato plnnting
aro, tho difllculty of kcoping tho seed
and tho greatcr liability to tbo nttacks
of insocta and diaoasc. Tho way to
kcep the aeed ia to placo tho potatoes
in tho light cnrly in the epring, not in
tho direct aunlight, but whoro thoro is
plenty of ligbt. Spread them ono deep,
and instead of tho long sprouta which
grow in cellars, thero will bo a green
bud, and tho growth of tbia will bo so
bIow in tho ligbt, tbat the potato can
bocutupand planted witbout injury.
Thia motbod of sproutiug is coming to
bo widely used by potato growers.
Then na to insects, otc, they mual be
sprayed nnyhow, nnd tho lnto planted
will require very little more timo than
tho early. Probably tbo coming way
will bo to plant n few very early for
homo usc, and tho main crop in June.

It would bc worth milliona of dollars
to the annual revenue of tho dairy
farmers of tho United States if tbo flrst
pnrngrnpb of the articlo on "Tho Utlli-
zation of liy-l'rouucts of tne Dairy ln

workod down in tho daily conviction of
every man who kcops cows.
Tako this ono aentcnce: "Tho kocn
compctition in our timo rcquirea tho
Btricteat economy in manufacturing."
"Our timo" meanB to-day. Wo must
handlo tho quostion by tho necessities
of to-day. It is a fact tbat thousands
of farmers should bo hcartily ashamed
of, that whilo the prico of dairy prod
ucta bas gono down, they aro going
along making milk just as cspcnsivcly
as evcr. They cannot. sec the buaiuess

Thoy aro making no cfforta to right

thoy will put a beefy, Short horn bull
at tho hoad, to produco daugbters moro
beefy than thoir mothere, and which
will givo lcss milk than their mothors,
and milk worth less per hundred than
whon their mothera woro born.

You aro in competition with men

Wo flnd in tho Wisconsin Farmer a

instead. Oats, or onts and poas sown
togother as early aa possiblo and for a
timo at frenucnt intcrvals sav onco in
two wceks would givo a succession of
green feed until corn, tbo great forage
crop, bo far enough advanccd to feed.
Hero at tho east wo often flnd it ncc
essary to feed grain boforo tho corn
gets in condition to uso, but in Bomo
cases tho oats and peas mlght bo sub

"But it is quito possiblo that beforo

tho placo of tho green fodder crops.
Expericnco isfast proving that this is
most oxcollent for tho purposo and will
requiro much Iosb work in feeding,
after it ib in the silo. But compara
tively fow follow this mothod now, bo
tho noxt bcst thing to do will bo to
grow tho crops and feed them green.
"Tho scason for feeding corn in its
green state may bo quito percoptibly
extcnded by flrst planting somo of the
oarlior varietics, to bo euccecded by
tbo kinds most gonerally grown for tho
principal crop. It will be found quito
important to adopt tho varietiea of corn

This fodder corn crop, as it is callod,

Bdtteb. Uecelpts for tbo week sbow a
conBiderable increaso. Demand has con

Bkans. Tbero bas boon a marked tm
provement in tbo condition ot tbo bean

kinds and a general advanco in prices,
Flour. Tbo market has been Tery much
ezcited during tbe week, tbe sharp advanco
ln the prico of wheat having greatly in
creased the prico of Hour. Tbere haa been
more buyinp noted, but it has been largely
from socond bands.
LuMBEii. Tho market on Northern and
Eastorn lnmber is very much unsettled by
tho war. The vessel peoplo are getting
rather nervous and some are aBking better
rates. Tho call for vessels is so sllght, how
over, tbat tbero is not much chance ot the
advanced prices being obtalned. Tho trade
bore is not buymg to any eztent, and the
mllls down East aro dlaposed to go very
slow in thematter of sbipping.
Woor,. Sales for tbe week, 1,057,000
pounds. The increaso in tbe buainess of
the week is wbolly tho result of a few trans
actlouB of comparatlvely largo siza ln Aus
tralian and Cape wool. The latter was
really but a continuance of the trade ot two
weeks ago, and represents tbe cleaning up
of tho supply of the wreckod hark Culdoon.
The wool was sold in bond to go to Canada.

Lato Grown or Sccond-cron Potatoes.
The seed valuo of a crop of potatoes
grown in the latter part of the season
ls fully recognized by all wbo havo
thorourjjhly investigated tho aubject,
but just why the lato grown crop is
Btronger and moro vigorous than one
grown earlier is an intercsting prob
lem, nlthough tho fact is clcarly dem
onstrnted. The reaaon which appears
to me tho most evident is that tho
ripening of potatoes in midsummer is
almost invariably accompanied by early
blight, cauaing rot, a dying of thevines
and seriously injuring tho vitalily of
tho Bced. But in tho latter part of tho
Benson, whon tho weather is cooler and
when favorable conditions for blight do
not exlst, wo get the seed with unim
paired vitality.
Acting on this theory last spring I
purchased seed, which I knew was
grown in tho latter part of the previous
BeaBon, and planting it tbo first week
in July I raised a crop of flne, largo,
smooth potatoes. Now there is no
reason why every farmer may not havo
his seed of lato grown potatoes if ho
will only tako pains to do so. The
keeping of the seed until timo for such
lato planting is the main trouble, but iB
easily accomplished by sun-sproutlng
which is simply spreading tho seed in
a thin layer whero it can receivo tho
sunlight. It will send out Btrong stub
by sprouts that are not easily broken
off and will commence to grow tho day
thoy aro put into soil. That is what I
did last year and ecarcely a missing hill
could be found in the wholo fleld and
nono of tho tubors wero affected by
scab. New England HomoBtoad.
