I can say I really did not <|uit plowing the land till the crop was laid by. Unfavorable weath er made me plant three times, the last being May 27. The re peated working of the soil before planting made a fine seed bed. and the repeated cultivations following kept the Johnson grass down and msde the corn con tinue to do well. Very little Johnson grass showed in the corn at any time, as it never had an opportunitp to get a start biforc it was given another tttback Rditorial comment: Those who much desire Johnson grass bnt are afraid to plant it because it becomes a pest on many farms •ill conclude from the foregoing that it is as much the fault of the farmer as of the grass if the litter becomes a pest. Last fiar was unfavorable for a corn j —- - crop where this crop was grown, yet 50 bushels por acre were harvested lrom land that had been a Johnson grass meadow the year before. A man hunting an easy job ought not to select Johnson grass land to make a plowed crop on; but he does not ba vc to move away from it to do! so, as the stale old joke says.! Weeds and grass have done a great service many times, in showing the ad vantage of plow ing land well before planting a crop and of cultivating it often afterwards. A ease of a negro comes to mind, who says he made the most money per acre last venr on land that had been in Her muda sod shortly before plant ing cotton on it. He said "I shuah bad ter wuk, butdat Her muder made me make more money for my pocket than three times as much other land.” These two grasses, Johnson and Bermuda, have a great mission in the South—that is, to teach the profit of good plowing and plenty of cultivation. That les son, once learned, will never be forgotten, unless one's inclina tion to rest—maybe before he gets tired— is so strong as to overpower bis judgement, and steal his pockclbook at the same time. Mr. Halbert believes in a far more strenuous kind of breaking and cultivating than most farmers, but even he thinks the Johnson grass forced him to made a better crop than be would have done if it had not been in the laod. aft Another in Trouble -- "My corn is ail sold as a re sult of the little ad in the (la yette, and I am now up against the proposition of getting stamps enough to return the ■ « . i* M « .

If you hare an old large clock that will not run, fill aomc small vessel with coal oil and set it in side the clock. Shut the door.
