he has purchased that long established and
well known Hotel, the “Globe Inn,” in Yprk

chambers are spacious and comfortable—and
he has laid in for his bar a full stock of wines
and liquors. There is large stabling attached
to the Hotel, which will be attended by atten

to render the fullest satisfaction to his guests,
making his house u near a home to then: as
possible. He asks a. share of the pnhllc's ps

Tapmpare the soil for its greatest. pro<
ductiveness, and to preserire it in that
condition with profit, is the highest and
noblest achievement of the farmer. The
soil is mat part of the ground which can
be tilled, which can'be reached and stir
red by agricultural implements. It is
made up of many different kinds ofenrth.
The soil which covers the surface of the
earth rests upon rocks lying at agreater or
less depth beneath, from the crumbling
or disintegration of which the 801 l and
loose earth have apparently been formed.
Coneeduently soils genei-nlly partake of
the nature of the rocksfipon which they
rest. Soils are also for' the most part in
termixed in a greater or less proportion,
with vegetable mold; formed from the
decomposition) of vegetable mitter.
Soils ought to contain within themA’
solves all the elements necessary to the
nourishment and growth of plante; but
unfortunately many do not. Originally
most soils in this and adjacent/counties
were rich and fertile, and pmdfioed, year
after year, abundant crops with compara
tively little labor and cure; but in pro
cess of tlme repented n(ngrp‘rng and poor
tillage impoverislfed” y n- once pro
ductive farm. ” A . ~
Why does fertility cease? The miner
al and ntmosphéric demerits of the food
of plants are; ‘gjradually taken up by suc
cessive cmpsTand carried off with them,
the humds grows thin and meagre, and
the soil is exhausted.
The crops obtained from the land be
come smaller and smaller from year to
year, till at last they are not sumclent to
reward the labors of the husbanflmnn.
The obvious remeay is to restore the
soil to its normal conflltion. To this and
various substances known as fertilizers
are used. The most common of these are
lime, barnyard manure, green manure—-
that is, the plowing tinder of green crops,
such as clover, oats tmd huckwheat—gu
anoLphosphnte, bone-dust and plaster or'
gupsum, but on most soils lime is un- ‘
doubtedly the most‘eflicient and lasting.
It must be borne in mlnd, howeyer, that
nine of itself will not give fertility to the
soil. The materials upon which it can
act must be present, or its greatest effect
will be lost. Whoever expectsto harvest
large crops immediately after the appli
cation of lime to poor land will surely be
disappointed. There must be organic.
matter in the sol}, either as dedfimposlng
manure or as vegetable mold, upon which
it can operate. 9= ‘
L'une brings into play the constituents
of the soil, and enables the plungteaeeed
on themrwhlle, as a salt, it formsthe food
of plants; yet its greatest effect ls-upon
the dlfi’erent parts of the soil itself. The
richer this may be the better will prove
the effect of the lime; the poorer the soil,
the slower and worse the qeffect. It is
owing to this cause that Lime has been
condemned in many cases, it having been
put on poor soils, where there was noth
mg for it to opem upon.
The effect of lime, it'wlll be observed.
is long continued. Its beneath tan « -
g‘eencropafter crop. Aalong gather“:
organic matter in the soil it slowly de
composes it. forming new combinations
and fredh food.
Lime will always be found to act most
promptly'and eflioiently when applied in
connection with a good coat of bamyard
manure. Considerable diversity of opin
ion prevails as to the'best mode of apply
ing it. Many area! the opinion that it is
bestto put iton plowed ground and work
it in with a harrow or cultivator; sonic
maintain thatltshouid be plowed under;
whilst others hold to the opiniomthat it
should be applied as a top dressing to
green erbps. But this is perhaps only a
matter of‘opinion. There is danger, how
' ever, of its getting in too deep. In work
‘ mg the ground the ilner particles of lime
I will penetrate to a greater depth than is
genera“:v supposed. The quantity to be
1 applied aries accordingto circumstances
from [6O to 150 bushelsto the acre. .
As stated above, poor soils containing
littlelor no vegetable matter, will bear
less than ground of better quality and
richer in organic‘mattcr.
An opinion _prerails to some extent
that with an abundance of barnyard ma
nure, lime is wholly unnecessary and unv
desirable. This is a mistake. It is an
established {act that lend well limed and
lightly manurcd will produce much bet
ter and plumper grain, and harder and
firmer straw, than land not limed but
ever so well manured. True, land not
limed but well .manured frequently pro
duces very luxuriant crops of grass and
grain, but so soft and yielding in the
straw that it falls tostand the “pressut.”
Consequently the seed is generally V ry
imperfect and inferior.
Lime has done much for our county.
No longer can it with any show of truth
be rcproachfully called “the buchivheat
county." No longer do 'we hear it said
that certain birds carry knapsacks while
sojourning in our midst. Times have
changed and a new and better order of
things has taken place. A race of indus
trious, progressive, enterprising farmers,
has taken the place of the thriftless 'i'osslls
that brought discredit and reprh‘ach upon
the county many years ago. It is safe to
say that ten" times as much grain and hey
are new raised in the county as was rais
ed 400r60 years ago; and by justas much
has the prosperity and happiness of the
people been increased. In proportion to j
size, our county is now one of the most :
productive in the Statp. ‘
But there is still room for improvement. ,
May the good work go on. Let not the i
present high price of lime deter farmers
from buying it., Indeed, Adams county }
farmers cannot afl‘ord to do_ without it
as long as it can be had at a reasonable [
priee. In the opinionsof the writer it
will pay at 25 cents abushel. Every one
knows what a pleasure and satisfaction
it is on the one hand to harvest good
crops, and on the other how discouraging
to gatmfipoor onfi. Besides, the labor ‘
and attention are about the some, Our,
county contains within itself all the ele«
ments of greatness and prosperity. Let
us endeavor to develop its resources to
their fullest extent. A. s. / 1
