The farmer .jgH should therefore, begin early to get the land broken and ready so that v there will be no delay when the time comes for planting. Waiting too long to break the land might cause one to miss a good season. Keep the land harrowed, and free from weeds, ind when the time comes to plant there will be no undue loss of time. By waiting too late to plow the land, . J it might bake, and be too hard to get in the proper condition. Break the land as soon as possible, and keep j down the weeds and grass by using Js the harrow often enough to preserve a dust mulch over the field. r.rnuinn D f? Dl--.- P? ? " ft > a UU1 a l?IIII S~ or Setting The Spring Crop In the South, plants for setting 1 the spring crop may be grown from seed sown in the open ground during 1 late September and early October. Seed planted at this time should be <"2 sown in comparatively rich soil and should be sown in shallow furrows on the level, which enables soil pro- -3 tection of the plants from severe freezes by drawing soil around them on approach of severe weather; other- J I wise the stems may be injured. Seedlings grown under these conditions become well established before cold *31 weather, developing in what is so commonly called "frost-proof" plants, and may be transplanted as soon as the weather and soil conditions permit. UNFERMENTED GRAPE JUICE. Clemson College, S. C., July?. Pick grapes from stems and press out the juice. This can be done more easily if the grapes, with a little water, ure heated sufficiently to loosen the hull. If bottled immediately, sediment will accumulate in the bottom of the vessels. This can be avoided by letting the juice stand irom iz co Z4 nourg (not long enough for frementation to begin) in which case the sediment will settle to the i bottom and the juice can be drained off. Heat the juice to nearly boil- j ing temperature (200 degrees J Fahrenheit), but do not boil. Strain through line cheese cloth and pour ^ j immediately into bottles that have 3 been scalded in boiling water. Cork bottles at once with tightly fitting corks, pushing the corks a little below the top of the- bottle. Seal with .vax or paraffine. If desired, the juice * may be sweetened to taste. Fruit " jars may also be used for putting up grape juice. No Uia For Them. "Look here, Snip," said Slowpay indignantly to his tailor, "you haven't put any pockets in these trousers."
