chipolata& force be but to the preparation
of your ground for the winter grain ; the
sootier this is done, the sooner will you be
in that position which all of us should cov
et.-ehat of being ready for the next. In
ploughing, whether the land be intended
for Rye,.or Wheat, it should be ploughed
deep: for, iu our humble opinion, there
nail be no surer truth than this—that depth
albite* is essential to successful culture.
Undercoocurring favorable circumstances,
shallow ploughing may, as it oiler. has,
produce very satisfactory yields ; but
theseare mere exceptions, and do not in
terfete with the integrity of our mle. We
would_ plough deep, whether the ground to
be'broken up be a clover-ley—a grass
sward, a stubble-field, or, indeed, any oth
er description of ground.
.Rvc:--In covering, do it with the plough,
and be sure to give a bed of 3 or 4 inches
to your seed—follow the plough with the
harrow, and that by the roller, so as that
the seed may be so compressed as to come
into immediate contact with the earth.—
This ensures an early germination and firm
hold to the roots of the plants. And In
order' that the plants may have time to
take deep root before frost sets in, and thus
entrench themselves against winter killing,
we would advise early, very early sowink.
We would much rather encounter the evil
of rankness than that "of winter killing.—
Where the ground is not good, and other
Mild manure not attainable, we would cer
taltily sow a bushel of plaster, or fire of
lime to the acre.

this money crop—as it is one peculiarly li
able to be taken off by disease and by in

in among the most important products of
our eountry, we think it behoves every
one, to do all within his power to devise
amen preventive means to save this valua
ble clop from its enemies : as to curative
ones, under ocr present belief, we look
upon them as being unattainable. The pre
ventive means which now suggest them
selves to our mind. are these—l. Early
sowing. 2. the use of Plaster, Salt, or I
Sonia other substance calculated to prevent
the too rapid supply of the nutritive ma

of the growth of the plant.

MOST WONDERFUL CURE

Penetrated with a deep sense of gratitude for
the benefit experienced by the use of Thomson's
Compound Syrnp of Tar, end that others who,
like me, have languished through years of of
and suffering, without being able to find a remedy

make the following statement.
About four years since, after being affected with
a violent cold, it left upon me a troublesome and
