The proper depth for plaotiog soeda is )ot to ce detennined by Ihe groateat depth from which they wilt come up and reach the surface tuccetifully. A plant may struggle and reach the aurfan to ex hausted that it never recorera ita vigor, and ihougb it may sot di\, yet never at tain perfect development. The condi tions of liA whilst under the grmiud, and after it has come up into the light and air, alw quite different. Under the ground it iivea npoo the food stored up tor it in the seed, drawing nothing from the toil, nerbapa, hot 'Pater. The boat in the soil is the motive i^erwliich cx- citea it into arlivlly. When it gets up Into the air an entirely new act of ojiem- tloni begins. Like everything else if tends to lose moUlurc by evaporation the water which thus cfrapcs in rcpls»l hy more absorbed from the soil, and willi this abnorbed water comes into i' from the soil. Its Icavrs liathcd air, draw in carbonic acid from t mna^rre, and with the aid of sunlight build up,-out of it Ad the elements of water, new tissues. It thiw iHi-omi-s an indopondent existence. Whilst under the ground it was dependent under it* mnUier's milk (the food laM up for iti. now H can fonige fur itaclf. If pinnii'd too deep, the food laid for it nuiy lie ex hausted liefnrc it can reach the surface; in thiit event it jtcriahes; or it may fall a little short af this, and reach the siirfjtce with ita parts imperfectly devclopeil— italeaww small, its slatks slender; or still farther, it may resell the surface l>e- fore ita supply of seed food is cxliaiiHieii, and proceeoing to gather food fruni the atniosphe*e, n'ceive uo cheek and not lie- come stuntwi in ita growth. Natures mode of soeiling is to drop the seeds on the surfaee, ami trust lo their licing covered by rain, or allernulc fivtz logs anil thaw ings, or Iry insects disturb- ing the soil, or other agencies of like na ture. Whilst this is an uncertain mode, and calls for a large amount of m-lsI.^Iu'- cause so great a portion is liable to fail- uiT of corering, it indicates very clearly tbt nature's method is shallow mvering, and that the organixation of plauts is adapUd to shallow covering- Just ^flugh covering to siTurc the neceiwry moisture is the plain indication. Kmw- cially is this true early in the season when 'molsturr nrar the surfw’c is abundant, and heal (the motive power) i« greatei than at lowi'r depths As the wason ad vnnees moistura retires from llie siirfnee and heat penetrates deeper doivu, soeda must lie plnnle1 iiei'in-r, but loose dry nature of the soil sImivo enables young plants to reach the surface more easily than wIk'H the soil is wet and cold. Ko much for thcorelual con siderations—pmeliee, however, cimllm' them—careful cxis'rimenis with plniiting seeds at different deptlis show that foi the larger seel, like corn, w heat, oats, ■ two inches eovering giv* •igorntis plants and largiM yields, riant comnow as shallow possible. —-tf/onto CiiiimUIuHvii.
