snol'LD THE PLOWS Slol
Ifihe weather is very dry and
the fields clean, is there anything
gained by continued plowing?
Farmers differ on this point. Few
tefet the matter by direct experi
ment, such ;us plowing part of a
lield and leaving a part unplowed,
and then measuring carelully the

done we shall not be able to reach
very positive conclusions. One is
very apt to pursue the same plan
continuously, if he begins iu his
early farming life to plow his crops
by routine, without regard to pecu
liarity of seasons, he will be very
apt to continue doing so all his life.
Hence his experience will be one
sided. Another starts out with the
idea that it can do no good to plow
if no rain has fallen since the last
plowing, and he continues on that
ne, waiting for a rain before he
plows again. Hence his experi
ence is one-sided also. The truth
is that farmers, while claiming to
be very practical, have a good
many theories, and sometimes stick
to them pretty tenaciously. It is
proper that they should have theo
ries; people in all associations have
them and act upon them. How
could one start out 10 do anything
without a theory as to which is the
beat way to do it. The point to be
guarded is to test theories by re
sults, and not hold on to them if
they do not come up to the test.
We are very prone to become wed
ded to theories; the farmer above
all others ought to guard against
this tendency in our natures, be-
1 caus nature" with which he has to
i deal so much, marches uniformly

I and pays no attention whatever to
his preconceived notions.
Yet in the absence of well estab
lished facts the best we can do is
to theorize cerefully and cautiously
and then follow the lead of that
one which, everything considered,
appears most reasonable. Let us
apply this to the matter iu hand.
Shall we continue to plow crops if
no ram has fillen since the last
plowing, and the land is perfectly
clean T What is the object of plow
ing during cultivation? First, to
kill grass and weeds: but in this
, case none are present. J-econci, to
I break the crust and have a mulch
of pulverized soil at the surface.
In the case supposed there is no
crust, and the mulch is already
1 present. Is there anything else to
! be accomplished by p'.owiDg under
I such circumstances! We have
heard farmers say: "Plow m dry
weather; it will bring up moisture
from below," So it will, if yon
plow deep. You will bring up
moist soil from below and leave it
at or near the surface, where its
moisture can readily evaporate and
pas off into the air. Is anything
gained by that! Stirring the soil
deeply in dry weather, on
it drv off the faster.
I four premises are

ponded is jnstso much lost. Hat
it is exceedingly important to be
Bare that our premises are correct ,
that there are no voung weeds or
grass started, but scarcely visible,
only waiting tor a ra:n ro taKe
possession of the soil. The farmer
who is caught napping on this
point and stops his plows is very
apt to suffer. Examine carefully
and see if there is no young grass
lurking in the dusty surface; if
there is, when the ram does come
it wiil make great headway before
the whole crop can be gone over
with the plow. W. I.. J.
Why the t row i Black.
The Indians of the extreme North
west had some very remarkable
legends about the creation. iu which
the crow takes the leading part,
bringing order out of chaos. Per
haps the most curious was that
which accounted for the raven coat
of the crow. One night, while
miikinf f onr t hron cli hi elomin
ions, he stopped at the house of
Can-nook, a chief, and begged for
lodging and a drink of water.
Can-nook offered him a bed, but,
, on account of the scarcity of water, '
rufased to give nim anything to
drink. When all the rest were
asleep the crow got up to hunt for
the water butt, but was heard by
Can nook's wife, who aroused her
husband. He, thinking that the
crow was about to escape, piled logs
of gum wood upon the fire. The
crow made desperate efforts to tiy
through the hole in the roof where
the smoke escaped, but Can nook
caused the smoke to le denser and
denser, and when the crow finally
regained the outer air he had black
pluninge. It was previously white.
