In the summer of 1872 I manured about three acres of ground plowed it down about tlie 10th of August and let it tie until about tlie 20th of September when I plowed it the second time and harrowed it well I then measured oflf a sixth of an acre and used a common lioe to make scores about live inches wale ami as nearly level on the bottom as they could be made I left a space about six Inches wide between the scores I sowed on said spot eight ty quarts of Fultz heat on the 25th of September and raked it in In the spring of 1873 hoed tlie spaces between the wheat once in April and once the lir-t week of May sowed to clover alter the tirst hoeing and had a tine crop of clover When the wheat came into heads I found them much larger than those of the same variety sowed the same day on adjoining ground of tlie same kind of soifi anil the hole treated alike as to manuring and plowing I harvested and threshed from the plot a little over eight bushels or nearly double the FORT WORTH THURSDAY SEPT 21 1S76 NATIOSAL DEMOCRATIC TlCKEf Foil PRESIDENT SAMUEL TILDEN Of New York rott UCfPRESIDET THOS A- HENDRICKS Of Indiana Due of the evils requiring correction AT WASHINGTON If the Dejii'x-ratie party or the Whips ever did while they were in power at Washington ue sneit means as the Kejrtthlieans are now tisinp in order to influence elections it is strange that it never as known to the people and never charged npon those parties by their opponents It was formerly understood by ail parties that the real meaning of the Federal Constitution required the federal government to remain totally neutral in regard to all elections and espeeidly to abstain from using any kind of official influence to change tlie results of elections How can we be said to elect our officers or representatives by a free and unbiased vote of the people when one of the parties by the aid of millions of money furnished from Washington City by officers wiio have no right to meddle with the elections at all is enabled to use a far greater amount of influence than the op-Isite party can in publishing campaign documents and employing public speakers? In all elections by the people it was intended that no outside influence should be used but the jeople of each State should be left to make tlie choice for themselves If tlie officers of tlie United States government are to be allowed to Use official influence and to cxjiend money in controlling ttie results of elections the government itself ill always continue to grow more and mdre eorrnpt Over tlie main entrance at tlie White House and over the head of the speaker of the House and that of the president of the Senate there should be a placard reading thus interfere ith elections bile you hold a federal The fact that rings of revenue officers tinder Grant have been permitted to eon- tinue for years the practice of swindling tlie government and people out of millions and tens of millions annually on condition that they give a certain amount of their gains to a--bt in carrying elections for the Itepnblican party is sufficient to idenuumt only the party using money obtained in that manner but to make tlie practice of u-ing federal official influence in elections a scandal and di-grace to our government If the citizen holding an office under the federal government sees proper to vote at all elections in his State it is liis right and if be should as a citizen electioneer lor his party during liis leisure hours no fault can be found with lim on that score but when lie devotes Hie time that legitimately belongs to tlie office in which lie is a servant of the United States to electioneering for a party either as a shaker or a riter he is defrauding the United States of that much of the service tine the government And when he uses a cent of the money collected from all parts of the country to pay for campaign dixuments or public speakers in a campaign to influence tlie voters of a State he becomes a swindler of the gov-'ernment and people of the Union to just that amount The money collected by federal officers from tlie ieople of the whole country belongs to tlie people as a whole and noi to any political party and not a single dollar of it should ever be used to influence any election Secretary Chandler is now calling upon the eighty thousand federal of-j fiee holders to pay him twenty percent of their salaries as a campaign fund to assi-t in electing Hayes This fact of it-elfj should be sufficient to condemn to ever- lasting disgrace liis party as well as him self If tho-e office holders ith the clerks er emnlovees are not roeeiving sala- lies higher than ffiey then it is an outrage upon them to tlemand of them for that purpose threaten-ea -11- removal if But if they are recenmg t-ucli sala lies tliat they can afford to give the money then the llepubliean party has swindled a CONNECTIONS FORM THE Direct!

in awl Fancy 1 amount per acre produced on the remainder of the held I always plow twice for wheat and very deep In the fall of 1873 I sowed all mv wheat on the same principle but making my scores (with a double-mould cultivator) about eight inches wide and the ridges sowdd broadcast about ten inches wide and harrowed lengthwise once then dmr-ged to lev el the ground In the spring of 1874 I cultivated a plot of one acre I lmed part of the plot once part twiceand the re-maiuder three times On the part hoed once the heads were about one-eighth larger than here I did not hoe oiAhe part hoed twice they were still larger and on the plot hoed three times they were larger yet some of them measuring nearly'-" inches in length and satisfying me it pays to hoe three limes Thp weld from the plot cultivated was fifty-five bushels per acre from the remainder of tlie field about twenty-three bushels jw-r acre Of eoure 1 dil not sow tlie plot I hoed to grass The remainder of the field was sowed with timothy and clover In tlie fait of 1874 I again put my crop in on tlie same principle Some of it I left without spring cultivation I found that the heads of that which I did not cultivate were larger than the heads of tlie same va- riety put in with a drill but not anything in compari-on with tlie beads on the ground which I cultivated I have a hit of ground cantaining 25 square yards less than a third of an acre on liich I sowed 13 quarts of a new variety of wheat which I had made by cross fertilization using as the parents hybrid No 9 and Fultz tlie former being 'white wheat stiff straw and tlie latter a red wheat Tlie yield from that lot was 16 bushels or about 49 bushels per acre Gave it only one hoeing in the spring of 1875 I have now about six acres of wheat growing put in the same way except that la-t fall I made the scores 12 indies wide left tlie spaces for cultivating 10 inches wide thereby utilizing more ground than heretofore and u-iiig the same space for cultivation My wheat this summer looks mudi better than any former year at this time I am satisfied that the advantages are more spaee occupied a free circulation of air opening up "he soil to air and warmth when the plant seems to need such influences the growing of the wheat in large nias-es so that it is more difficult for the frost to uproot it and the better setting of tlie plant if lifted by the frost It al-o seems to me that it protects itself better than when sowed with the drill You can form a much more correct idea of it when you see the wheat growing As I said before I sow broadcast and narrrow lengtliwi-e and nearly all that fall- oil" the ridges rolls down into the scores by harrow ing The extra eo-t of putting in wheat in this way and of cultivating it over eo-t of drilling I do not think would reach S3 per acre though I have not kept an accurate account John Ileiges in Agricultural Iteport Don't Feld Poultry Corn In forty-five out of the fifty flocks of poultry you will
