MARKER AND FURROWER. A. Fiu-m Implement Which I» Highly JPralsed by Its Designer, Among- the improved farm implements in use by a progressive younjj ( tanner of this vicinity is a combined 'Jtoarker and furrower of his own de•Ign,. which he claims to be better •daptedto his use than anything- he had •tried before. The runners are cutfrom three-inch material, three and one-half •rfeet long-, and ten inches wide. These »re placed at the proper distance apart «nd firmly held in position by cross- jpieces in front and behind, each end T>eing- notched into the runner and dtastened down with two coach screws ionr inches long- and three-eighths of *n inch in diameter. Over these cross- jjieces, and in the center between the sruxmefs another piece is bolted and allowed to extend six inches forward and » foot or more backward. A "V-shapcd" place of iron fastened upon this re- •ccives one end of the gunge, which is iflnnly braced by a three-eig-liths-inch )*od connecting with a ring bolt at the {forward extremity of the center-piece, ^tiiiis admitting- of motion from side to j«ide only in a perpendicular plane. This does away with all cords attached ••to the harness, and variation from un- •qual pulling 1 of the team is avoided. Into the center-piece and rear crosspiece stout leg-s of some elastic timber GROWING SWEET POTATOES, by « 1.—COMBDTKD MASKKK A_YD FuJi- EOWEK. mre inserted which support a seat at a proper height The frost corners of this seat are rounded and the center of the front and cut slightly hollow. It 1» placed just far enough forward to mllowthis hollow part to rest solidly •jfainst the gauge when in a perpendicular position," as in the engraving-, I liolding it securely while turning- or in *'-driving to and-Vroin.the field. To present -wear a piece of strap iron is tacked »cross the front end of the seat, and another on the gauge where it strikes the seat The elasticity of the legs allows the gauge'to pass the slight swell on either side. The driver can operate this without leaving his place,.as would be necessary with other forms, and •when raised both hands are free to use the lines. Of., course, the Distance,; from the «enter of the machine to tho^'center ol .of the gauge marker must be exactly twice that between the centers of the i-Ttmners. The gauge marker is made -comparatively light, 14 or 15 inches ilgh, and but 9 or 10. inches long, the object of making it so high being- to -carry the pole above the runner. This ia rather a disadvantage, for it is much •more liable to break by catching on FIG. 2. —SECTION OF MAP.KER. iatones and roots tiian if it were lower ' «nd shaped differently (Fig. 2, A). ^ Another improvement of doubtful »_yeneral utility, but especially suited to Ids case, was made by my neighbor, ••whose farm is rather. hilly. .He -found v "that his marker would slide downhill r Jdespite every effort to .keep'it on the ^proper line, and to .remedy this he-made his runners of two*-1>£-inch pieces plx>lted together, with a piece of a. cross- ,-cnt saw blade at the bottom of each, extending nearly the entire length of 5the runner and two, inches below it, as, ;«hown in Fig.. 2 (B). It proved a snc- Jcess with him, but turning is rendered jmucli more difficult, and where not ab- teolutely necessary it is thought best to ^mit this feature. * To make a furrower of this machine, «ut out a deep but very narrow mortise Jin each runner (see dotted lines in Fig. &, B.), These are made to receive the forward ends of wrought-iron beams, carrying- a large cultivator shovel a •hort distance behind each runner. Handles are attached to these beams, and when turning or driving to and fro, the beams are thrown forward until they rest against the front edge of the mortise, in a nearly upright position. The beams should be placed as Slow as possible, that they may not in- Jterfere with the gauge while in Tise. A itwo-inch hole cut through just below Jthe mortise allows tho escape of any 4Irt that may fall into it. While just fchis form of implement may not be needed on many farms, there are good jwints about it which may be made of practical use by nearly every farmer.— 8. P. Shnl!, in Rural New Yorker. THE POULTRY YARD. Methods of Cultivation Practiced Xebriuka Farmer, We select a tolerably sandy soil for sweet potatoes. Some prefer not' to plow the land before ridginff, claiming- that the potatoes are shorter and better formed, but we plow the land in April and about May 20 we throw up ridgea by turning the furrows together with an ordinary plow. Now any time after a rain or during a cool spell we set our plants first raking the top off the i-idge to remove the clods. We set plants about twelve to eighteen inches apart in the row either making a hole with the hand or using a dibble, putting them down a little deeper than they grew in the hot bed. In a few days we lightly rako the top of the ridge to break the crust. When the weeds begin to show we use the hoe on the ridges and a culti--, vator in the middle. Should the vines take root we run a hoe handle under them and - throw them over on to the opposite side of the row. Now is the time to get away with any weeds as the vines are not in the wav. In a day or two the sun will have dried up the little roots on the vines. Then turn from the other sido. We begin digging about September 1. Should the frost strike the vines, they should be cut off just at the top of the ground as if left on the potatoes are injured. We usa the ordinary spading- fork for'digging. We find it best as the potatoes are not so badly bruised as when plowed out and sweet potatoes cannot be handled too carefully as they rot very easily. It is best to market as soon as dug unless the best of facilities are at hand for keeping. The seed may be had of any reliable seedsman. It is much cheaper to buy plants than to grow them unless wanted in large quantities. — J. F. Heppe rley, in Western EuraL Regarding the Weight of Corn. Prof. Morrow of the Illinois experiment station has tested the weight of corn ears to determine the amount required of various kinds to produce shelled bushels of 50 pounds. He found 70 pounds of the early, 73 of the medium, and 78 of the late maturing varie- fies, would produce each when fresh a bushel of air-dry -shelled corn by the end of October. We have found quite a variation, however, in seasons, and more difference in wet seasons than in dry ones, sometimes varying 'mearly 20 per cent in the later sorts which do not ripen dry. The earliest varieties will of course have a better • chance to become hard and dry than the later and more succulent, and there will be a difference greater in more northern regions than under a longer and. hotter SDO further south. Farmers who have -occasion to measure or estimate corn in the ear may easily make tests by weighing freshly husked ears, and again in winter and again the next summer, and may ascertain what may be of importance to them when dealing in large quantities.—Country Gentleman. Specialist M.D.'B Centuries Ago. A quarter of a century since the average doctor was almost everything. He was physician, surgeon, oculist and now and again in case of emergency •would pul] a tooth. We are taught to believe that specialism in medicine is a very modern invention. But read-this from' so old a writer as Herodotus: "The Egyptians have among them a great multitude of physicians. But each man is' a'physician of one part of the body only, for one healeth diseases of tho eyes and another diseases of the head, and a third diseases of the teeth." Verily, there is nothing new under tha snn,—N. Y. Journal.
