consideration, there Is no great hurry
to harvest; It can stand until after

is to cut when the best results from
both may be obtained. The longer th

which leaves It In bundles of conven

Is held together. The common method,
however. Is to cut with n mower, and
the crop should be left to cure well

large shocks or small ricks containing
from a ton to three tons each. This is
dono with a hny gatherer, "buck rake,"

If wo thought we had soil that needed
more llmo In It to sweeten It, we would
prefer tho phosphate of lime either as
an acid phosphate or in tho very tine
ground phosphatlc ,rock, or basic slag,
such ns nro usunlly called floats. In
any strong soil, rich In humus or decay
ing vegetable matter, or where a green
crop bad been plowed under, wo think
cither of these would dissolve quickly,
while the cost Is not much greater than
that of sulphate of llmo or common
land plaster. Then we should get the
benefit ot the phosphoric acid as well
as of tho lime. But to get the full ad
vantage of tho llmo we would put tho
field In cabbages, cauliflowers, turnips,
wheat or other small grains, or In
grass, l.nne is or nine auvantago for
corn, nnd on potntoes It Is said to In
crease the senb nnd decrease tho value
of the crops If not the quantity. With
n strip of litmus paper It Is easy to as
certain If the soil uecds lime, as the pa
per put In wet soil will turn red If there
Is too much acid, but If It Is still blue
the soil is sweet or has llmo euough.
Wood ashes nlso contain lime, mixed
with potash. In some soils this is the
best form to apply lime, ns potash is
often needed, but It Is not easy here to
buy good wood ashes. American Cultivator.
