Mrs. J. L. Denton died at her

o'clock, after an illness of over
two weeks. For several days
her condition was such that little

the usual winter or early spring
rains. The deeper this is done,
the greater will be theabsorptive
area, and the more moisture will
be stored within the soil for the
use of our planta next summer.
It ia of especial importance that
this fall and winter breaking
j shall be deeply done, aa we must
j store the moisture deep down in
the soil so aa to prevent it being
lost by evaporation. In break
ing the land for the saving ot
moisture it will be well to break
! it in rows or leave it rough while
the rains are coming. If the
j land has a fall in one direction,
j then run the rows nearly level
, so that they will catch and hold
