Plow, Packer nd Harrow Mutt Bo
Used Often and Thoroughly to
Catch and Retain Molttura
Fall During Winter.
The great majority of failures from
dry farming tbe past season and di
rectly traceable to a lack ot knowl
edge aa to tbe requirements ot the .
crops. The greatest mistake was
mnde In the preparation of the soil '
and until this part of the business
becomes thoroughly understood tho
settlers mlght us well give up "tho
idea of dry farming and go Into tho
chicken business, says the Denver
Field and Farm. A slipshod method
In preparing the Eecd bed Is the first
step toward failure. Tho plow, the
packer and harrow must bo used oft- j
en and thoroughly. Plow tho land in
summer or fall as conditions will per
mit and plow as deeply as possible.
When we ilrst break the virsin sod
we can seldom plow deciier than two
and one-half to three Inches, hut after
that we can gradually incroase this
depth to eight or ten inchos.
The object ot plowing deep in sum
mer or fall is to catch and retain all
tho moisture posslblo that will fall
during tho winter and spring and thus
have a largo reservoir of lcose soil
to retain tho water. If the precipi
tation 13 heavy enough during thi3
period to thoroughly 1111 tho soil with
moisture, disk and harrow the land
bb coca as soil conditions will per
mit In t;'e spring. A crop may then
be ph'.nt.'d with seme prospect of suc
cess. In cvrepilonilly dry years It A
will bs found necessary to summer H
fallow the land and seed It a year ,
laler. On level land where the wind
blowB a great deal and lo apt to carry jj
tho Enow off of the fields, n method , ut
often prnrtired to great advantage is f!
to plow deep furrows serosa tho Held
every ten or twelvo feet In opposite
direction to the prcvalllm? winds.
The snow Is driven and held in thesi
furrows and a lister can bo uaed to
burst out these rows,
, The roller and harrow oil rhonld , w
be used freely. There art upon the ; JfiSA-KSSaSSnSPaS
market a number o" corrugated ro:- i - 1 -
ers. One with deep corrugation Is
preferable. Ncvor UBe tho roller

It can not bo followed by tho harrow.
Many tenderfoot farmers work the
soil when it has a tendency to stick
