How to Raise Big Crops. .
It has often boen asserted bv .advanJ
ced agriculturalists that if wheat,
cither spring or winter, is sown in
drills, far enough apart to admit of us
ing a horse hoo between tiio rows,
bolli-to keep down weeds and loosen
and aerate the soil, tho yield might bo
increased to a marvellous extent mora
than it now is in this country.
In proof of this, a recent observing1
and intelligent traveller in Belgium
gives tho modo of culture there and
tlio yield, which sometimes, with very
f avorablo weather for harvest, reaches
as high as ICO bushels per acre. This
is ono of tho most populous countries
in tho world, supporting481.71 persons
to the square mile, against 13.02 in tho
United States and 216.62 in Gnrraany.
Winter wheat is a stanlo crop thcro
on their higbpriced small' farms of only'
an acre or two. Tho land is highly'
manured in autumn, well harrowed
several times, and got into tho best
possiblo condition, Tho grain is sown
in tho fall in seed beds, vory thickly on,
tho highest and best' locations, whoro:
it is not likely to bo winter-killed, or
injured by any casualty, suoh as over
flowing or drowning out, os smothering
under tho snow.
In tho spring tho main fields are
again dressed up and marked out in
drills tho proper distance. When the
wheat has grown sufficiently to bo
moved, it is thinned out by being taken
up, separated from tho thick stools,
and planted in the drills with a tool
called a dibble, which makes a hole
the proper detph, into which the wheat
roots aro inserted, pressing tho earth
tight against thorn with tho foot. This
work is usually intrusted to half-grown
boys and girls, a man sorting out tho
wheat plants in order that those of tbo
same size may bo placed together,
that tho field may grow even and regu
lar. When tho plants havo commenced
growing, the soil is thoroughly and
constantly stirred, either by means of
hand or horse power. Every weed
and all foreign plants aro destroyed,
and nothing but what is wanted, the
article itself, is allowed to grow. There
are very seldom any extensive failures
of crops thus carefully and scientifical
ly grown. The yield is a quantity
never imagined or heard of in this
country, nnd tbo crop always and sure
ly pays tho oultivator.
It is asserted thateuoh pains would
not pay to apply to crops in this count
try. But do wo not go to tho opposite
extreme T Has it ever been tried here!
It certainly would pay satisfactorily if
applied to choice varieties in small
quantities, about to bo used for seed.
It is certainly better to till one acre
and get a crop now raised on four
acres, than to try tho four and only
raise half a crop, which is now so often
tho case hero. Milling World.
Looking out the Back Door-
A friend of ours wished to hiro a
farmer for a wealthy neighbor, and wo
mentioned ono who was wanting an

had been to seo tills farmer, wo asked
tho result. His roply was. in sub
slanco : "Yes, I went thero , I went

Tho front doors of farm houses aro
rarely opened. Tho back door ia in
constant use. One need not go far in
any locality, to find tho outlet of . tho
kitchen sink ending iii a sort of ditch,
which is supposed to carry off tho
wasto water, but whioh only allows it
to soak away and saturato the ground
near tho back of tho house. Tho sel

small coffin is taken out. Tho minis
