Following is the program given on Friday evening: Push the Crops by Thorough, Rapid Cultivation Prybably the first object of cultivation should be to keep down grass and weeds those robbers of the plant world, that take plant food, water, sunlight and air from our cultivated plants. The methods and1) im plements that best hold these pests in subjugation are of course the ones that should be used. Different weeds and grasses must be fought by differ ent methods. Varying soil con ditions will necessitate variations in farm practice; and even seas onal.variations wet weather and drouth will made it necessary that we adapt our plans anil procedure to meet them. The essential point is to keep the i - i crop ciean ana growing, never letting the grass get a start This calls for rapid, continuous work, but there has seldom been a time when farm products were hierher-priced, seldom a time when greater rewards were offered the farmers for diligent effort. mi- j . ... xne secona grac essential in cultivation is the conservation of 1 ITt . . a . moisture, water in the soil is a solvent for the plant foods used, and without it, however plenti ful the plant foods may be, crops must fail. Hence anything we can do to conserve the moisture supplyjuring the growing period has a very direct value in in creasing ' yields and profits. Here, too, methods and practices must in a very considerable nfeasure be determined by the varying factors of soil and season, the essential tiling being to make a dust blanket or mulch of the top two or three inches of soil and to maintain this to save the life-giving moisture below. ' A precaution that every - ise farmer will take in killing the weeds and making the dust mulch will be to see to it that as few plant roots as possible are broken. On an average, culti vating around two inches deep should be about right Any thing much deeper will be too se. ere on the roots, while any thing much shallower will fail to make a mulch that will save the moisture.
