expect to sit still, and that manna will

and reason were given him for exer- j

out a small spot, from twenty to "forty
feet square, according to the size of his
farm ; this spot should bc dug down
from two to four feet deep, and the
earth should form a bank round it ; a
few stout oak posts with crotches should
bc planted in a line along the middle of
this pit, and shorter ones should be
placed at the sides, toN receive strong
poles, on which to erect a shed of

a quantity of top earth or sods, and if
vur soil be stilf, a quantity of sand.
These substances should be mixed,
and a laver of one foot in thickness
should be spread over the bottom of
the pit ; then cut down and collect all
the weeds (before thev seed) about
your fence and farm, and spread ano
