There are many theories about the
best way to get the greatest yhsld. One
person says be has adopted the follow
ing plan :
Furrow tho land four or five inches
deep and three feet apart. Cut each
potato lengthwise Into four parts, and
drop the pieces from fifteen to eighteen
inches apart in the row. This method,
he finds, gives more merchantable po
tatoes and less small ones than when
more seed Is used. The yield is also
nearly double that obtained by plant
ing in hills three feet apart each war.
tnother good authority says : "The
crown eyes of the potato aie the only
ones which yield vigorous plants ; the
produce oi the other eyes is feeble and
unremunerative. If, "therefore, pota-
Uies are cut for seed they should not
be cut lengthwise, by which the crown
is divided and eyes of all kinds Intro
duced into the seed, but they should
tie cut across, the half containing the
crown eyes planted, and the other half
used for food.

It is found that the high, sandy soil

proper fertilisers. Ashes and salt have

Potatoes planted in summer for home
use may be mulched with great benefit.

When the potatoes are out of the
ground the best way to keep them is
to raise a bed nearly a foot above the
level of the ground ; put the potatoes
on this bed, cover with dirt, and then
build s potato-bin over them to keep
off the rain. This is far preferable to
the northern cellar, where the potatoes
nd other vegetables lie and rot, gener

Oood vegetable land is usually a me
dium between the high and the low
pine lauds. Potatoes take a large per
cent, of potash from the land and re
turn but little to it ; for this reason the
food supply must be kept up or the
land will be impoverished. The tops
contain considerable fertilising matter

It will be seen by the above that this
crop does well on different soils and is,
therefore, not a difficult one to grow.

with plenty of potash and moisture ap

The four great foods for hogs are
corn, clover, milk and bran, with
thoe foods hogs can be raised econom
ically and at a good profit, even if
holera does come occasionally. Corn
the cheapest and best food for fat
tening, and it is the cheapest to form
the bulk of the winter ration for grow
ing stock. Men go too far, however,
when they use it alone as a growing
ration. It needs the muscle and bone
forming material of some food as bran
or milk to supplement it. Clover is
the cheap and practicle food with
which to form the bulk of the ration
for choata and hogs during suramea
It needs the addition of corn when
summer fattening is desired, and must
be supplemented by milk, bran and
corn for the best growth of sows with
young pigs. Milk is eminently the
young pig's food, but it is valuable in
feeding with any other ration. ro
other food stimulates the growth of
pigs like sweet ekim-muk.and no other
food aids the bog more in producing
fat from a ration consulting mainly of
corn, israjj 1. merely a supplemental
food in most cases and serves to balance
the food ration when feeding corn or
other starchy food, whether feeding-a
growing or a mature fattening animal.
