K1KST WORKING OF CORN.
In the olden time the coulter was
the favorable plow at the first
working of corn. The idea was to
ran very near the corn with a plow
.- . .i j:- i .
which threw little dirt and yet
broke the soil very deep. Perhaps
the deep breaking at the early stage
of the crop did little harm in the
way of root cattiDg. The coulter
certainly had the merit of not dirt
ing the yoang corn heavily. The
modern, the more rational, and we
think the better plan, is to break
the land deeply and pulverize it
thoroughly before the seed are
by plowing shallow. Whilst it is
desirable that the soil should be
r . .
sufficiently loose for roots to ramify
iwD,i, i,0,ir. if nt .n frTr
through it readily, it is not well for
it to be so open that the roots can
not make close contact with the

moisture. We recognize this fully
in setting out plants they perish
if dirt is not pressed to the roots,
or compacted about them by water
ing. Now, any fair, arable soil
which has been well broken late in
winter or early in spring, will
ordinarily retain enough looseness
for roots to penetrate it easily. It
will also acquire a certain degree
of compactness from natural set
tling and the action of rain. In
short, it gets into about the right
condition for the needs of the plant,
and should not be further disturbed
during the growing season. Snr-
face plowing is another matter that
is desirable; deep plowing is tin-
If the laud is of close, waxy tex
ture, and has been run together by
heavy rains subsequent to the
breaking, it may be advisable as a
choice of evils to side corn deep
and close ; but, except in such ex
treme case, it is better to use the
sweep from the beginning and con
tinuing its use to the end. When
we eay sweep, we mean a shallow
running, wide cutting plow. Bven
a cultivator may be run too deep.
The special point to be guarded in
the first workmg of corn is. not to
dirt it too freely. The habit of
corn is, to send out successive
whorls of roots from successively
higher and higher joints ending
finally in the brace roots, which
start well above ground. If the
corn is heavily dirted whea young,
it is induced to push out roots
higher along its stem at an earlier
period than it would naturally do.
The lower whorls of roots seem to
be smothered, as it were, and the
plant seeks relief in new roots
nearer the surface. The last formed
roots of corn (brace roots) naturally , such land, the lir.-t thing is to lind
go downwards, penetrating quite a favorable outflow for the water,
deep in the soil. Even these, ; This should be not less than four
therefore, do not call for hilling up , or live feet below the general sur
of the corn. But if dirt must be face of the field, but we often have

Other things being equal, evapo

lortional to amount of surface.
Ridge land presents decidedly
more surface to the air than that
which is flat. Every one has no-
ticed how the drvine ot a wet bot-
torn in spring is facilitated by bed

ridging of land is, moreover, the
principal cause ot washing. For
the sake of the crop. then, as well
as for the benefit of the land, keep
the surface flat. Set plows to
throw as little dirt as possible.

There were only six ol u in toe

while some held eight, ten ami
twelve. We were within M'Veli
feet of the fence, and a- we weie
all men from one regiment, and all
captured at the same tune, we te!t
that we could trust each (it her.
The idea oi an escape was broached
in February, but it was the l.:h of
April when the first real move was
made. The only show was to tun
nel under the fence and come out
by night. There was a guard sta
tioned on elevated platforms about
the mclosure by day. and at night
a chain of sentinels walking regu
lar be. its outside the fence. We
calculated on a tunnel not less than
thirty feet long, and it was begun
by taking up some of the flooring
in the back end of our shanty.
Visits of inspection were held twice
per week, but there was not a day
in which some official was not lia
ble to come poking around.
The floor of our shanty rested on
sleepers clear of the ground. We
could therefore stow away a great
deal of the dirt under the ttoor.
We worked only at night, and that
in reliefs ot two. We first went
down four feet, and then started oil
on a straight line for the fence and
beyond. We were almost at the
fence before we had to carry any of
the dirt out doors. We managed
to scatter a ouantitv around out
house without exciting suspicion,
and the res: had to be accumulated
during the night and carried out in
our pockets. It was slow v. ork
when we reached that point, and

The surface of the balloon must
always be tight, in order to prevent
the damage which otherwise a
strong wind might cause. To pre-
variations in temperature, another
small balloon is placed inside the
