The agricultural editor of tho New
Yorlf World says:
Wheat flourishes best and is moot
productive on calcareous soils that is,
on soils that contain more or less lime.
Rye grows well on soils much lighter
and drier, and although it does lietteron
laud containing some lime, it does not
require it nectwaarily to the same extent
that wheat does. Farmer sow rye on
soils they consider too poor for wheat,
and therefore ryo field will usually be
fonnd occupying the poorest soils of the
farm. Rye endures cold better than
wheat, and is a common substitute for it
on soils that will not grow the latter
grain with certainty and profit. Kye
own as a green crop in the fall may be
nsed for winter pasture or for soiling in
the spring, in either case furnishing
green food, which no other crop will so
well supply at the same seusou. Whon
harvested for the grain the straw of rye,
nnlike that of wheat, is a valuable part
of the crop for sale, being extensively
used for packing and bedding material,
bnt on account of ita toughness and
coarseness it has but little value as ani

There has been considerable revival of
the old war between swt and soar

war has led to some excellent results.
Men have b"en experimenting to find
some way to prevent the alleged loss of

according to Professor Meyers, of the
West Virginia experiment station, if the
sweet cream is churned at 54 degs.

minutes, and with no greater low) of but

marketing the two kinds of butter. The

would have been called sweet by any
butter maker of those days. American
