HOW POTATOES QROW. of Culture Adopted—How These Plans Differ. With a view to giving some tangible idea of how Irish potatoes grow and the tarns aud conditions the tubers as- Mine when growing Ohio Farmer bos noonrse to two illustrations, which are Mferred to by a correspondent at follows: The first illustration represents the trenching system, where the ground is •track out about six inches deep aud the , REPRESENTING THE TRENCH SYSTEM. -potato, D, dropped aud covered at C. We put the harrow on as soon as the •prout is through the soil and work the dirt in up to B, seeing, of course, that the plant is iu no way left with stones, olods or sods on it to prevent growing. When the plant gets through this last ooot of earth and is about three inches high, begin cultivation with some good narrow toothed implement, working the soil around the plant on a level at A. •'Other cultivations will gradually work more soil toward the plant till a slight ridge will be formed at tho base of the vine, as indicated by the dotted line oil top Fig. 1, which will leave the parent potato fairly deep in the soil, prepared to withstand a pretty severe drought. This plan of cultivation has several good points to support it, although it ia more expensive than shallow planting. Each layer of soil worked toward the plant induces tho stalk to throw out a lateral and a set of roots from which tho REPRESENTING A GENERAL SYSTEM. potato sets aro sent out, and each lateral joint usually starts nearly tho same number of tubers. Therefore the system can be profitably applied whore it is desired to get a large yield from a small quantity of seed or where growers are limited to a short acreage. The second illustration represents tho more general system of cultivation among growers whore tho ground is narked out three to four inches deep and <the seed covered at ouce with some covering direct that throws a heavy ridgo over the potato, after which it is left to aprout and work its way up through the dark, cold earth, getting whiter and slimmer as it uears tho border of the -world it has been hunting for tho past three to four weeks and usually having but one lateral joint to send out roots wad sets. I think this system could be greatly improved if the harrow or some node of leveling the ground were usod •(tor planting, putting the entire sur face on a level, as indicated at the dot ted line E. Then when the plant appears through the ground and is ready to start a leaf, put oil an implomout that would throw back the original dirt, JIB sbowu iu Fig. 8 ut F. This modus operand! would iuduoo the plant to add another lateral joint and thereby very largely iuorouso the yield, which would pay well for the labor expended. < Tiio ItuulnD Tlilntle. 1 A correspondent of the Dakota Farmer suggests that each township should •eouro a herd of cattle or sheep aud pasture them regularly on eaoh school •ttotion and then have the herd driven to all parts of tho township where there |i unoccupied laud to pasture down the thistles and after harvest herd them oil the stubblo fields until winter.

'J herd was tested by the Kooh THE CHINCH BUG. the State Entomologist of tlllnoli Telll How to fight This test. In bulletin No. 88 from the agricultural experiment station of the University of Illinois Professor 8. A. Forbes says: Economic measures now available are practically limited to experiments for the destruction of the chinch bugs by the introduction of their contagious diseases, nnd to the interposition of barriers between small grain and corn to prevent their passage from one to the other as infested fields of small grain ripeu or are destroyed. To accumulate and kill them as they pass from field to field a deep furrow may be plowed—to bo kept clean aud as friable as possible, especially on the vertical side, next the field to be protected —and in this the accumulating bugs may be killed by a mixture of kerosene and water (about one part to eight) thoroughly and repeatedly shaken together. A variation of this method, used very successfully in Wisconsin, is to lay a quantity of green wheat or oats or fresh corn stalks in the furrow, in which the chinch bugs can be killed with this kerosoue mixture as they accumulate. An added measure of success with the barrier method may be secured if two parallel furrows aro made instead of one and the soil between them be kept dusty. The chinch bugs escaping the kerosene mixture or other destructive agent in the outer furrow could then be killed in tho second. If they succeed in passing these barriers aud collect upon the outer rows of corn, they may there be killed with kerosene, which should then bo applied in the form of an emulsion to prevent injury to the young corn itself. To prepare this fluid mix 2 parts of kerosene with 1 part of strong hot soapsuds, and violently agitate the mixture with a hand force pump until a permanent cream or butter is formed. This may .then be diluted with 10 or 12 parts of water and applied either with a eprinkler o'r in a spray from a hand force pump. A more expensive and less readily manageable method is the planting of strips of some favorite food plant, as spring wheat or other quick growing succulent cereal or grass, around infested wheat or around corn to be protected, where the chinch bugs may accumulate aud be destroyed before laying their eggs for tho second generation of the year. The biigs may be confined to tho strip after having entered it by furrows plowed all around it and attended to 'rom day to day until the destruction is complete. For the benefit of those who wish to experiment with the introduction of contagious diseases arrangements have seen made to infect and distribute live chinch bugs to farmers, tho funds for :his experiment having been furnished ay the board of direction of the state agricultural experiment station. Tho results of this method are, however, not sufficiently certain to warrant an entire dependence upon it. Eleven years' experience with tbe chinch bug emphasizes tho fact that it is not to be mastered by any one measure or any one man, but that joint action on an intelligent pro- jrammo of preventive and protective measures persistently followed up offers the only valid bope of success.

The color of this variety of geese is not uniform, but is iu most instances brown, shading from dark to light Ono peculiarity of tho China goose is a knob at tho base of the bill, and this has given it tho name of tho knobbed gooso.

'ransport Kow Shlnif, Sunk by tho Japanese, Was an Engllnh Vemel, WASHINGTON, July Jl.—It is the opin- on of diplomats here that the Japanese lave, made a grave error in sinking the iransport Kow Shing, mid one that is ikely to cost them much money in repa- ation besides the humiliation of an apology. The Kow Shiug was of a line of casting steamers belonging to Hugh itatlrieson& Co., and trading between Chinese ports. The vessel was under the Jritish flag when she was sunk. Al- hough she carried Chinese troops to ?orea, it is said here sho did not in so dong violate tho law of neutrality, for here has been no declaration of war or jpen acknowledgment by either China r Japan that a war prevails. The ves- ol, therefore, was engaged in legitimata raffle and the Japanese are likely to pay .early for sinking her and destroying the ives of the ship's company. Domniuleil Dumngcs From Japan. LONDON, July 81.—It is stated the iwners of the transport Kow Shing have lemanded damages from Japan through he English foreign office for the sinking of that vessel. On the day following the fight between the Chinese and Japanese ships, a Japanese cruiser encoun- ered a Chinese ironclad in the Prince 'erome Gulf. The Chinese claim their vessel was victorious and that the Japanese cruiser was taken off by her con- lort in a crippled condition. American Forgor Sentenced.

Woolsej endeavored to get Scbultz and his son tc accompany him either to Tecumseh o) Pawnee City, but the elder Schultz refused to go. Woolsey .was powerless, having no papers. Woolsey and his deputy started for Pawnee to meet Sheriff Slone. Meeting Slona they returned to tho sceno. la th< meantime Shultz, with his sons, had started in a buggy west from the farm. hoping to escape. At a comer they met three of the deputies. They turned south before the deputies could stoi them and a lively chase for nearly a mile followed. Finally, as the deputies were being outrun, they ordered tho fugitives tc halt. They refused and the deputies all fired at them. The old man, who was in the back seat, was shot through the back and through the hend.
