THE COLUMBIAN AND DEMOCRAT, BLOOMSBtJRG,' COLUMBIA COUNTY, PA.
Oorn In Hills or Drills,
A currcRNtmlont of tho Country
Gentleman writes i "As Uio result of
twenty yonra of experience) anil oiiscr
vntloti, I nm decidedly in fnvor of hill
planting, lloth methods are practised
licro to Hotne oxtcnt, hut jilantlng in
drills is not done so nmoh now us four
or live years nyo. In this section tin
yield of Measured bushels of cars Iter
ncro will bo nbout tho samo by eilhar
method but tho ears that aro grown by
planting in hills aro longer, tho grain
better developed, and consequently
heavier, giving about ten per cent Moro
shelled corn by weight than that grown
by tho other method. On tho other
hand, moro stalks will bo trrowti by
- . tj , -
in drills i but in our cornlicms
tho grain is tho main object, and wo
think it is better, if wo aro likely to
need moro fodder than wo get with our
crop, to devoto a portion of land exclus
ively to tho raising of fodder-corn.
"There is ono other point to bo con
sidorod tho labor question. Very littlo
hand labor is required in corn after it
is planted, if we navo good horso imple
ments, and good workmen to handle
them, rowed both ways, whilo in tho
other case much hoeing is needed if tho
fields aro kept clean. Good culturo is
necessary If you want a good ewp of
corn, and to liavo tho land in good con
dition for barloy tho following year. In
western-central Missouri, where I so
journed for three seasons, tho verdict
of tho best farmers was to tho effect
that planting in rows both ways pro
duced about ten per cent more corn,
with two-thirds to three-fourths of the
labor required in drill-planting."
Usb Your Hones. Tho Agricultur
ist says : "iiones accumulate on every
farm, and a hunt for them will bring
out many moro than ono would expect
to find. When properly treated, they
furnish very valuable food for growing
plants. Whole bones, as tney aro thrown
out from tho kitchen, are so slowly de
composed, that they aro of little use,
unless applied very largely. They need
to be broken tin or mado fine in some
way that tho largo amount of phosphor
ic acid, etc., contained in them may be
available. It is not practicable lor or
dinary farmers to have bone mills, and
tho next best thing is to break them up
somewhat with an axe or heavy ham
mer, and mix them with unleachcd ashes,
keeping the heap moist enough so tho
alkali will "eat" them, and render tho
bones soft. Tho bones thus treated
will crumble to fine pieces when dried,
ana arc then ready to bo spread upon
the land. livery larmer should see
that all bones aro thus made into a val
liable home-made fertilizer."

Owners of real estate along tho Now
Jersey coast may perhaps bo led to re
flect, by tho annual report of Prof.
Cooke, tho State Geologist, on the van
ity of laying up to themselves tiehes
where tho surf and tide encroach, and
where the sea breaks through and steals.
From Sandy Hook nil the way lo Cape
May, he says, the ehure has been stead"
ily worn away for a century. At
Shrewsbury inlet the water line has
moved inland from 165 to 3110 feet since
1853 ; at one part of Long I5ranch.37
feet; aud opposite Whale Pond, .125
feet. It is known that about tho year
1700 tho lino near a part of Capo May
extended more than a thousand feet
further out than now ; while at Capo
Island tho shore has been worn off fully
a mile during much less than a
century. There is evidenco not only of
tho attrition of the waves, but of tho
general rise in tho high water level.
Dead trees in great numbers are found
standing in the tide marches all along
the coast ; it is obvious that the great
salt meadows between Newark and
Jersey City were once arable uplands ;
islands havo disappeared under tho water
one, in Klsenborough, which contain
ed ten acres of irood farm land as late
as 1863. being now utterly submerged ;
Money Island has also gone, nnd so has
