CULTIVATED AREA OF THE COUNTRY
Interesting and Instructive Data. Concern
ing the I'riiiclpHl Crop.
The breadth of cultivated area in
creases 1 trjjely each season. In the new
er state:! and territories settlement is
rapid, and each year new areas almost
equal to states in their aggregate are
given o ver to the plow, while in older
sections east of the Mississippi river new
farms ate appearing on hitherto unculti
vated la ids. The rapidity with which
this est nsion lias gone on during recent
years h:is Ihhmi recently noted by the
national statistician, who furnishes the
data here given: In 1879 the four princi
pal arable crops corn, wheat, oats and
cotton occupied lSS.IJftO.OOO acres; in
188$ this area had increased to 159,000,
000 an enlargement in nine years of
81,000,0( 0 acres. If the increase in all
tilled and grass land has been in the
same pioportion as that in these four
crops, we have now a total area of im
proved lands in farms of 3.jfi,OU0,Ou0
acres, against 285,000,000 in 1879.
With the rapid increase of aggregate
area the : e is generally but little change
in the comparative breadth given to each
of the principal staple crops. In the
minor ciops the fluctuations are greater,
an extended area one year often" result
ing in l..w prices of the product and a
diminished acreage the next. In some
seasons l here is a forced change of pro
portions, resulting from an unfavorable
planting time for one crop, or from other
natural causes. These variations are
only ten porary, the next favorable sea
son finding the proportions restored to
tho norr ial.
Each of the principal crops tho pres
ent season occupies its average propor
tion of the total area. In somo sections
there is a tendency to change from one
crop to j.nother, but an increase in one
place is balanced by a reduction else
where, so that aggregates are the same.
In the New England states there is a
tendency to more grass anil dairy farm
ing, and the increase seems to be at the
exjienso of corn and potatoes, the prices
of loth of which have ruled low during
the year past. An increased acreage is
devoted to oats in the middle and north
Atlantic states, with some enlargement
of grass land and increased attention to
truck farming and market gardening.
The cott n stales show the usual increase
in the u reage of their staple, with more
detenuiiied effort than usual to grow a
home su ply of grains and food stulTs.
In Al thama and Georgia esjKfially
there se ms to have Uen some success in
the elTo -t to reduce the importance of
cotton, cue apparently to the direction
of farm ts' associations. The elTort to
make tobacco a staple crop in Florida is
lieing co itimied on a larger acreage and
with ap Kirent success. Elsewhere the
area of t lis crop has lieen very material
ly rediictl bt'tth in the cigar and shipping
districts. The acreage of spring wheat
s-ems to have declined in Wisconsin and
Minnesota, owing to ravages of the
chinch lug. Flax shows a decline in
cultivation in tho older districts and an
increase in the newer regions, where it
makes an excellent first crop. Increased
attentioi. is U-ing given to sorghum in
portions of Kansas and locally in some
Plow iiig I'mlcr CroK and Wf ds.
It is so lietimes necessary to plow under
weeds, awl it is often advinuhle to turn

under so lie cros, as rye, clover and pea
vines, to enrich the land. Three are vari
ous devii es for tliia purjiose, including a
weed hix.k a curved rod of iron fastened
to the tieatu, and extending over the fur
row in such a way as to catch the weeds
and curve them down' until the furrow
slice catches and covers them. With
long gra:-s and weeds there is often less
difficult; than with those that are short.

in the cut and attached to the lieaiu and
