All this water must be gathered by the root system and elevated to tlie various parts of the plant. It must also be supplied reg ularly according to the need! of tlie crop.

A study of the roots of corn shows why It is a poor policy to cultivate deeply, especially after the crop has reached any size. Every Urne a root ip lorn out or broken the water and food-gathering power of the plant is weakened, and tlie ebanees for a full crop lessened. The ideal system is that which keeps the surface soil loose and free from weeds, and gives the roots undisturbed possession of the sub surface. JAMES M NALLY. ham Lincoln, W. E.
