cover broadcast 'grain nearly as well as a drill
will put it in, and should precede the grain drill
in preparation of the soil. It should be used, by
all means, upon fall plowed ground. They are
remarkably adapted to rough and stony, as well

These are the very best chilled plows in the
market for general purposes, and upon all kinds
of ground:
1 ask for fair and thorough test-Vials for
these plows in competition with the other lesol
chilled plows. The Wiard Plows are warrautbd
to be decidedly the beat, and greatly superior to
all other plows for hard and stony . ground. I
believe nearly every farmer will buy these plows
when he becomes acquainted with' their real
merits. 4 •

it is better than a hard baked snri•intl.
Under this condition the soil dries very

Tyndall makes pUblic in London ,the
results of experiments made by . Dr.
Koch, of Tioston, on Tubercular disease.
It was known before that the disease
was communicable, but Koch has ascer
tained the exact nature of the parasite
which causes consumption. He has
propagated it artificially, and killed
animals with parasite .thus prodnced.
Matter expectoratCd from the fugs of
consumptive persons has lieen . found"to
be swarming with parasites, which are .
highly infective.. Tyndall's object la
to protest afresh against legislation
which prohibits in England experi
ments such as enabled . Koeli to Make
these discoveries, but it is hoped that
Koch will develoPe a harmless form
of the tubercular parasite, which by
inflect:dation may prevent consumption;
and thus check a mange which accor
ding to Koch's calculation, carries: off
