It used to be 100 acres or more There la too much cleared land. It would be a gain in many ways if one half of the cleared land iu this good old town Bhoald be planted at once with forest trees. That being done let the farmers select tne best oi the remainder for in tense cultivation. Pat all the manures and fertilizers on to a few acres adapted to the desired crops and use all the ma' cninery and power that can be made to do the work.

It was the scan dal of the neighbors, of course, who drudged fifteen or sixteen hours per day and got in some of their hay aftsr we were in bed. But we worked while we worked, there is only about so much energy can be user! each day, and a man, like an ox, will go slew if he has to go too long. The best pieces of land to-day are the low lands which bave never been culti vated. The wealth of the soil of the whole farm in some cases has waBhed down into these wet, wide meadows. It will cost something to break up and drain such land but when it is done it will pay ten per cent on the investment in hay and grain. Where there is plenty of wood land and a lack of strong soil to work on break up a piece of new land. Go back to the original soil. Plant the worn out meadow or pasture with trees and clear up a piece of forest land. This is what scientific farmers are doing all over New England. And It pays. The climate has much to do with the soil. Woodland, forest, trees every where hold the moisture and keep up the water supply. The climate of the town, or of any particular farm even, depends upon its trees. Besides that, every farm ought to have a pond if possible, and a little water power. It will be useful in many ways, and moreover will beautify the place. Soil is being formed all the time by the action of sun, wind, rain and vegetable growth. When land Is exhausted it should rest. Flow it. Flow it deep. Seed it with clover and turn the entire crop in. Nature will replenish the soil is the farmer knows how to co-operate. The scientific farmer works in har mony with the elements, to make a favor able climate, generous soil, food for the crop and for his cattle, and he knows what he is doing and why, and he has reasons to expect results.
