Is to have a good rich loam soil
that never, gets too wet and that
by frequent cultivations from the
time the ground is first plowed, in
earjy spring until the" young po
tatoes are of a size to make a
crop without further, work, and bq
it will hold moisture 'enough . to

tion: one . very, important thing 1b
if there Is a shower in summer
like' last ' summer.", to stir the
ground quick 'and; not let a crust
form. : If . the crop commences to
turn dark geen on top and yellow
next i& 'the ground too early ' in
summer. then; - the crop will be
short,; or with 4 fyprable change
in weather the young spuds will
commence to grow, and, -send out
Knobs, and' damage the grade of
the crop.- Erpry weed allowed to
er.ow In the field lessens the crop.
Destroy ail weeds so the spuds
can.baye all the moisture all for
their own use. J Be, very careful
that: you plant good' clean seed in
clean grouna clean of potato dis
