The Cultivation of Cor if.
The best mode of proceeding in relation to
com is to plow very deeply ia the first in
stance,. preparatory to the reception of the
seed, aud to keep the surfaco soil light and
loose in the after cultnre. Everybody knows
that while corn strikes its roots to a great
deapth, whenever the nature of the soil will
admit of so doing, its lateral roots spread out
id a perfect net-work between the rows. Now
the most serious matter to be guarded against
in raising corn are the droughts that prevail
frequently at or near mid summer, and wash
ing raius when the corn is planted on hillsides.
Deep plowing protects the plant iD a very
great degree from the effects of drought, by
stirring up moisture below the poiut of rapid
evaporation. In the case of heavy rains it has
also the advantage of permitting the water to
percolate through the soil instead- of holding
it in solution, as is the case with shallow plow
ing on an under soil, which by constant and
slovenly practice becomes of the nature of
hard pan If, then,the soil has been deeply stir
red in the fiist instance, surface tillage is the
only thing needed in the after culture. We
most decidedly object to plowiDg or cultivat
ing the land to a considerable depth after the
growth of the corn is well advanced, because
this cannot be done without inflicting serious
injury to the great mass of fibrous roots which
extend laterally but a few inches below the
surface, and which are constantly extending
themselves in search of fresh food throughout
the whole period of growth. The after culture
should in uo instance be of nature to interfere
with the lree ramification of these delicate
roots, for by larcerating them we cut off just
so many mouths as we cut off fibres, aud thus
deprive the plant of that amount of nourish
ment which these mouths would otherwise have
furnished. The rule, theD, is deep and thoro'
plowing before planting, tolerably deep eulti
vatiou before the roots begin to exteud to any
great distauce from the stalk, and shallow stir
ring subsequently. It is customary with some
farmers to run a light harrow over the corn as
the tender blade makes its appearauce above
the surface, and the practice is a good one in
loams and in all soils of a light texture. But
where the soii contains a prepouderence of
clay, and is apt to bake or form a crust- after
a rain, the danger is that in breaking up the
clod the young shoot will suffer injury. In such
eases it is much better to use the hoe in loos
ening the compact earth about the place, and
to let the shovel plow and the cultivator loos
en the intervals between the roots both ways.
Frequently stirring of the soil is absolutely
necessary from the time the plant appears
above the ground until harvest suspends, per
haps temporarily, perhaps entirely, the work
of after culture.— Rural Register.
To CURB A HORSE THAT KICKS IN THE STA
BT.E — Place a plank, securely fa3teued, not
more than two inches above his hips across the
stall, and the horse will soon get sick of trying
to kick, for kick he cannot. If he is au invet
erate kicker, and will kick without the plank
to prevent him, the " Subscriber" will find it j
much cheaper to beep the preventative in op- -
eration than to build new stalls.
The following came under my notice years
ago : " The horse was a fine full-blooded ani
mal, and kicked everything moving in the sta
ble. After trying every remedy without ef
fect, a strong swing was hung a short distance
behind him as he stood in the stall, and the
seat being well padded so as not to injure
him. When all was ready, the swing was set
in motion, which of course, immediately at
tracted his attention, and he began to kick and
strike at it, and when it came toward him, he
would kick until he got his hind foot snugly
fixed on the seat of the swing. Here the poor
animal remained until he was thoroughly tir
ed, wheu he was released. That horse never
PRESERVING THE PF.ACH.— After several
years' trial, I am confident that the applica
tion of fine brimstone (flour of sulphur) to the
base of the tree will preserve it, first moving
away the earth about three inches deep, and
destroying the worm, if there be any, applying
a small or large handful, according to the size
of the tree, and replacing the earth.
This may be done every year, or once in two
years. This I accidentally discovered moving
the earth from a peach tree 6 or 8 inches iu
diameter, much injured by the worm", the hark
all off, and the wood badly eaten away. Hav
ing a jar of sulphur by me emptied the con
tents, from half a pound to a pound, in the
opening made aronud the tree,- to clean out
the worms. The earth was replaced, with
slim hopes of the tree recovering ; but daring
the summer the foliage assumed a deep rich
green, and the tree grew finely.
On removing the earth in the following
spring, no trace of the wound was visible.—

" To be, or not to be— liat is the question !
Whether 'tis nobler in the mind to suffer
The slings and arrows of outrageous opposition,
Or by taking up nrms against a sea of printing ink,
And opposing, end them."
FTIHE proprietor of the Argus takes occasion in adver
-1 tising his Bindery to indulge in an uncalled for fling
about a " sort of a concern," which is hoping " to delude
the public."' As I have opened a Bindery on my own ac
count.the inference is that if the public bring their
binding to me, they are in no danger of being defrauded.
For two years I have worked for Mr. PARSONS, and lie j
has taken great pains t satisfy the public I was the "best
Binder in America," as the columns of the Argus wil j
testily. Has lie been all that time " deluding the pub j
lie?" If I have been engaged in a fraud, lie lias been th j
principal. But I refer to my work during that time a i
evidence that there lias been no fraud practiced.
Having served a long apprenticeship at the Bindery |
business, I have resumed business here on my own ac- |
count,as 1 know of nothing which prevents me from fol- i
lowing a legitimate and bawfulcalling for my support.— j

Normal Department —Special exercises are arrnngea
without extra charge for those preparing themselves as
Teachers of Common Schools. Prof. C.R. COBURN.the
able and well known Superintendent of Common Schools
in the county, has kindly consented to organize the Tea
cher's class, and direct the course to be pursued.
He will also be present to conduct its exercises as often
a practicable, and will deliver frequent lectures on the
Theory and Practice of Teaching.us alsoonothersubjects

Those persona, therefore, intending to engage in teach
ing for the winter, will find it greatly to their advantage
to be present during the Fall term.
Prof. Coburn's connection with the institution Is not
such as to in any way interfere with the discharge of the
regular duties of his office.
No pains will be spared, on the part of the Faculty and
Trustees in sustaining the high repulatation the institu
tion has hitherto enjoyed, and in lendei ing it more wor
hy of future patronage and support
