bed is to dig a trench 2 feet deep ami
2 feet wide. Fill in with 10 inches of
clean horse manure, and on this sow a
mixture of 25 pounds of bone dust and
40 pounds of sulphate of potash.
Cover with six incites of rich dirt, and
then place on tills dirt two-year-old
roots, placing the roots two feet apart,
as they will thicken In rows in years to
Cover the roots with two or
three inches of dirt, and after the
plants are well up and grown above
the surface fill the trench with equal
parts of well-rotted manure and rich
earth. The object of using so much
manure is that it will be difficult to ap­

The Seeds Problem.
The really extravagant farmer is the
one who saves in buying seeds. There
may lie a difference in seeds on the mar­
ket, but to the farmer there should be
no such thing in his vocabulary as
“poor seed.” No seed Is worth more
than so much dirt If It Is not strictly
good and true to variety. The use of
poor seed, which falls to germinate,
and which compels the farmer to re­
plant, may cause the loss of weeks In
the spring, making his crop late. Ami
that Is not all, for he also loses tho ad­
vantage of the early rains, and his
yield will thereby lie reduced. With
certain crops there Is also a loss In
quality and prices. The seed used Is
everything on a farm.
