Ever »ince we announced the fact that we had secured the Ex

the good women of our city.
This interest waxed into enthusiasm
when they learned that The Free was not only insured but that
it also possessed

gins with the preparation of the soil
for the seed bed. Frequent harrowing
before the corn is planted will create
a dust mulch to hold moisture and
will render a fine and firm condition
of the soil particles. This is essential
to enable the corn roots to penetrate
the soil and get into touch with the
available plant food.
By the time this article reaches its
readers corn will be well along and
ready for regular cultivation. When
the work with the cultivator begins
there are a few things to be borne in
mind. The roots of the plants are
the "foragers" which supply the plant
with food and water. If they are crip
pled in any way, or can not function
properly, the plant must, of neces
sity, be stunted, and, therefore, incap
able of producing a normal growth,

With the number of days' cultivation.
Deep cultivation means running the
cultivator shovels two and one-half or
more inches below the surface of the
soil. Shallow cultivation, from one
to two and one-half inches deep, Is to
be recommended. It accomplishes all
that is desired and does it in the
easiest and most efficient manner.
The roots are not injured, the dust
blanket thus formed holds the mois
ture, the weeds are killed and no new
supply is brought up from the middle
or bottom of the furrow slice.
It must b6 remembered that cultiva
tion is not an operation simply to get
rid of weeds. It should be practiced,
even if no weeds exist, to hold soil

in the autumn or early spring, so as to
destroy ic?ect .s and get it in good

added, it may be added "to land that
has been plowed in the fall, early In
