Write it and send it to the " Agricultural Editor of the DEMOCRAT, Jlellefonte, I'enn'u," that other farmers may have the benefit of it. Let communications be timely, and be sure that they are brief and well pointed. A I'IKM, well-compacted bottom, with a mellow, thoroughly, lined sur face, constitute the proper mechanical conditions of soil for a seed-bed for wheat. This condition is easily and thoroughly secured by early plowing, and frequently repeated harrowings. A very important incidental advan tage derived from this course is the destruction of myriads of weed seeds. Mu. JOHN DUNCAN, editor of the Kentucky Lire Slock Monthly , meets the objection to their small size, often urged against the Jerseys, by saying that as machines to convert food q lickly, and in large quantities, into the very best and highest priced but ter, they pay so well that it is imma terial whether the machine, when worn out, will sell for a big price to the butcher or not. ONE of the most important im provements in little tilings connected with farm implements is the "slip point" now provided for all of ttie best plows. It is a great comfort and promoter of good work because it provides for always keeping the plow point sharp, and it is a great economy because it enables one to get much more wear out of a share, j than when it is cast in one solid piece. THE continued high prices for everything that the farmer produces I and sells furnish an excellent stimu lent for improved farming and more of it. The time has been when ob jection was made to the advocacy of progressive farming and the leach ing of better methods, on the ground ! that over-production and low prices would follow. In the light of exist* ing facts this argument loses its force. There is plenty of room for more fanner., and abundant reason for better farming in this country. TURNIP seed sowing is in order at any lime for the next two or three weeks. This is a very cheap crop, and one of no inconsiderable value for fall and early winter feeding. If the corn ground happens to be on good bottom land, and is kept as clean as it should lie, it is an excel lent plan to sow the turnip seed aaioag the corn at the last cultivat ing. A crop of several tons per acre may be realized without the least danger to the corn, and witli no expense except that of harvesting. One of the essentials of success is that the sen! should lie sown immedi ately uftcr the cultivator, before the ground has had time to settle. WE are under obligations to Col. Thomas, of the l-'am et's !■ ricud, for an invitation to attend the summer meeting of the Cumlierland Valley Editorial Association, at Williams' Grove, on Friday, August 21, that being "Editors' Day" at the Grang ers' Tri-State i'lcnic, which will lie in progress during that, week. This an nual meeting of the farmers of three States lias grown to an occasion of great interest and real importance to the farming communities reached lim its wide-spreading influence. Col. Thomas, the inventor and promoter, has worked indcfaligahly to accom plish this result, and in its manage ment evinces executive ability of a high older. We hope the coming occasion may be even more pleasant and successful than any of the past. Manufacturers of agricultural imple ments and machinery, breeders of good stock, nnd all interested in ag ricultural progress and advancement, will do well to make note of the ex hibition. Last year it was attended by more than thirty thousand farm ers, representing ten different States. From nn advance circular received from Col. Thomas we make the fol lowing extracts: "The Ninth Annual Tri-State Tic nic and Exhibition of the Patrons of Husbandry of Pennsylvania, Mary land and West Virginia, will open at Williams' Grove, Cumberland county, Pa., on Monday, August 21, 1882, and continue until Saturday, August 26tli. Excursion rales at reduced fare will be arranged over all the principal railroads in Pennsylvania, Maryland and West Virginia. Agricultural and scientific address es, by prominent farmers and states men, will be delivered on Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. Friday 25th, will be "Editors' Day," and many of the most promi nent newspaper men in the country will be present on that day. Circulars, giving full details of the arrangements, will be issued by July Ist. For further particulars address, 11. 11. THOMAS, Man'gr Tri-State Picnic and Ex., Mechanicsburg, Pa. The-Turnip Crop. Ani<*riciitt Agrirulturuft. No crop makes better returns for labor bestowed than turnips. The seed may be sowed anytime from the lirst of June throughout August, in many localities below the isothermal of say the north line of Connecticut. It may be sowed broadcast, in drills or rows, or as a "cattle crop," among corn ; or turnips may be used to seed grass with, sowing both the turnip and grass seed about August Ist. For turnips alone the preparation of the grouud is simple. It needs good plowing and harrowing if in fair heart; but a dressing of 400 pounds of bone dust or 250 pounds of super phosphate to the acre will almost in sure a good crop. We rarely have such dry weather that turnips will not start in July, and soon as they make leaf heavy dews seem to be enough to keep them growing, but last year was an exception in this part of the country. In many fields turnip seed on dry ground did not germinate, or at least did not make any show above ground. in sowing turnips broadcast the greatest care must be taken to have them thin enough. A pound of seed to the acre is all that should be sow ed, and this should be divided, the whole piece being sowed twice at right angles. In Europe the seeds men use old seed baked, or baked rape seed, to mix with turnip seed as an adulteration. If we could buy here such old baked seed so as to mix it ourselves—say five pounds of baked with one of live seed, and thus be able to make a fair cast, instead of throwing little pinches of seed as we now do, it would save a good deal of trouble. Sowed in drills, turnips must be thinned. Much rank manure gives it a strong, bad flavor. Turnips ought never to have the first chaic: at a dressing of yard or stable ma nure, but to come as a second crop As to varieties, there are two widely different classes, and intermediate varieties without number which it i 9 | hard to classify. Swedish or Ilus sian turnips, generally known as "lluta-bagas" or "Swedes," are a very distinct, hard-lleshed, glossy leaved kind, occuring in many va rieties. that need better soil, earlier sowing and better culture than the soft-lleshed or English turnip, which is rough-leaved, grows most rapidly, is a voracious feeder, doing well and making a bulky watery crop where Swedes would do very little, and yet it is a question whether the small croji of Swedes would not contain nearly as much nutriment as the soft turnips. Between these two ex tremes of hard-fleshed and soft-flesh ed kinds are many varieties partak ing in a measure of the hard-fleshed character of the Swedes, but gener ally regarded and treated as belong ing to the common or English species. Such are the "Yellow globe,'' "Yel low-stone," "Dutch," etc. Asa rule it is best to sow Swedes sis early as the first of July, the "Globe" and "Stone" turnips as early as the 25th, and the solt turnips, "Strap-leafed fiat," "Cow-horn," etc., by the 10th of August. The last named is the best to seed down to grass with, and on good soil, not clayey, turnips and clover seed may be mixed together, using about 15 pounds of clover seed, because some will winter-kill. Advantage of Flat Cultivation. Corro|H)iidi'nt of Country Ccntlomati. Whether the land is very fertile, or whether we have 2,T00 or J, 500 hills, flat cultivation, and keeping the soil elean of weeds, grass, etc., each qt which take up moisture that may be needed by the eorn, will do much to economize the water supply of the soil. Every elevation of the soil above the level gives so much more surface to give oil moisture, and hills are only a damage to the crop, lor they not only dry out the soil sooner, and contract the spreading of the roots of the corn, bid they contract the brace roots so that uie corn is easier prostrated by storms. Cultivate often, t commencing by dragging it Iwfore it comes up, and alter; at least ouce with n Thomas harrow. Do not cultivate deep enough to cut oil the roots. Root pruning is not neceseary on one Held in a hundred, as a check to vigorous growth. Cultivate olten, but stop when the tassels have nicely devel oped themselves. Corn does not want to be disturbed when the fertili zation and maturing of the ears is going on. Corn is the moatprolific grain we grow. The Theory of Mulching. Jonifiii Hoopefl in the Tribune. The intelligent horticulturist mul ches his young trees and plants to keep the soil cool and moist. With this definite object in view, he is careful to apply only a slight cover ing of some lose material that will admit a circulation of fresh air to the ground, and yet prevent the di rect rays of the sun from baking and retarding the growth of the delicate young rootlets. When a thick mass of mulching substance is placed around a tree or plant, the soil be neath quickly becomes saturated with moisture, followed by the germs of disease, and this is why the system is in bad repute with some of our best cultivators. Bearing in mind that the object is merely to shade the soil, the material should be as light and loose as possible, and if it is re moved occasionally and the surface of the soil stirred, there cannot be anj' evil results. An objection has been raised jto the system on account of the harbor it affords for insects, but we must bear in mind that very few of these are injurious and some of them posi tively beneficial as scavengers. It has been stated that if we keep the soil constantly stirred, mulching will be unnecessary. With this I cannot fully agree, although a strong advo cate of frequent hoeing of the sur face. No matter how often or how thoroughly the soil is stirred, the hot rays of the sun in midsummer will injure the roots more or less of a newly planted tree. Loose soil al ways attracts moisture, it is true, but mulching will preserve it cool and moist at the same time. In winter, the benefit to be derived from mulch in preserving an even temperature at the roots is beyond all question. It is not to keep them warm, but to guard against sudden and injurious changes. Sulphur in the Pig Pen. j A. W. B*** in Swine Breeder*' Journal. If there is any appearance of lice or vermin of any kind, sprinkle sul phur in small quantities over the bed ! ding. This, when the nest becomes warm, rises in fumes, and will quick ly drive out every manner of vermin, and besides it is very healthy—enter ing through the pores of the skin it cleanses the blood. A little of it placed in the slop occasionally will do more to keep awav cholera and i like diseases than anything you buy for five and ten dollais. The trouble is the remedy and preventive is far too simple and cheap. MU. PKTKR KAY, of Southboro, re ! ports to the MasfachnsetU Ploughman I a little incident of his early days as an agriculturist, illustrating the "ef fect of frequent cultivation," and the lesson of which he says was worth to him SSOO on a s*2oo farm." "The minister of the parisli had the best garden in town; I went to him (the Rev. Walter Follet), and said : 'Will you please tell me what is the secret of this enormous growth of your vegetables, and getting them so for ' ward?' (knowing he had but a little ; wood ashes). 'Well, Mr. Fay, 1 can j tell you in a few words: 1 am in my garden by the rising of the sun (this was .hitie), and 1 can go over it in | about four mornings, then 1 com mence and go over it again, and con tinue it till my vegetables are grown, and never let a weed go to seed.' The secret of this growth was the | frequent stirring of the soil." WITH substantial, well built roads i along the lines of most frequent | travel the cost of conveying grain j and fruit to the railway stations might he reduced from one hundred to one thousand per cent. This is no exaggeration, as may be seen from the fact that it now costs the farmer as much to haul a bushel of grain one mile from his farm as it does the yiilroad company to haul a ton the same distance. The railroad compn | uies think it pays to prepare a smooth, | level road lied.— Practical Farmer. MANY tillers of the soil entertain | the idea that the only object of culti vation is the killing of weeds, while i in reality a good gardner should have no weeds to kill. Weeds should j serve him only as reminders of his remissness in cultivating his crops at the proper time. The principal ob ject of stirring the ground is to keep the soil light ami loose l , that air and moisture may penetrate it and that the roots may spread easier in search for their necessary food. — Dr. Ho::- amir. -As soon as potatoes commence to blossom all cultivation should cease, because if the earth is stirred after that time a largo number of small tulrers will surely Ire the result. FAUMINO is a business, and there is a great deal of head work about it as well as hand work. The latter is comparatively cheap and feasible, and can he hired. OBSERVANT wheat growers seem to favor the theory that a good wheat s'SJ.j a part of the condition for suc cess, needs heavy rolling to follow the seeding. Cabbage plants may be hoed every day during the season with advan tage to the crop.
