The gentleman in question was not long
in discovering that one Mr. Gill had fore-
of arguing, and like vastly to have the rea
son or rationale of things explained; and
many of them will yield to a theory which
will not listen to a fact. Well, then let us
look into the theory of Mr. Young's prac
tice. Hear him.
My universal rule is to plough my corn

eight to twelve grains in each hill, cover

as my corn is of sufficient heigh', I start

allowing a horse to walk each side, harrow

land prepared as above and harrowed as
directed, the hoeing part will be so com
pletely performed by this process, that it
will satisfy the most sceptical. Then al

a few days, I start my small ploughs with

Irom which I never deviated. Now 1 do
not pretend that the labor bestowed upon a
soil field to put it in a state of thorough cul
