The above question confronts t fie
tanner at present, and a number
of inquiries about it have reached
us recently. No indexible rule can
be laid down. Here, as in most
farming matters, one must take all
surrounding circumstances into
.consideration and exercise sound
discretion and judgment. First,
I as to corn : l'y the time the plant
I is in full silk and tassel it has at
, tained to its full growth. All that
remains for it to do is to form its
i ear. This is done chieliy with ma
terial already elaborated and dis
i tribnted through its stalk and
j leaves: partly, but in smaller de
; gree, from new material from with-
out- Up to the time then the grain
; begins to harden, the plant is
i gathering material from soil and
I air. Its relations to these should
'not, therefore, be disturbed, its
leaves should not be stripped and
its roots should not be cut. Ju
dicious plowing enables it to get
materials from the soil more readi
ly ; injudicious plowing will greatly
interfere with its work in this re
spect. Moreover, its leaves are
then quite liable to be broken off,
as well as whole stalks. It be
comes a choice, then, between two
evils: mutilating the plant above
ground and cutting its roots on the
one hand, and having the surface
compacted and crusted, and there
fore unfavorable to food forming
and root action, on the other.
With these general facts before us.
let us look at surrounding con
ditions. If the soiled with humus, is soft
and friable, is clean and not dis
posed to bake and crust, it is ob
i vious tfiat a crop may be laid by
p:irlior than wlipn rmnnsitp non -
oi, c;i ffiii,
need the late plowing, and root
cutting and ventiliation of plant is I
avoided. Aga'n, if land is rich and j
moist, corn grows rapidly and doesj
its work in a shorter time than on :
poor dry soil. If laid by therefore;
in the "bunch" it will mature its
ear before there is much need of
another working. You hear a far-j
mer say. "I had to lay by that;
core with two workings, it grew so,
fast 1 could not plow it again." On
poor soil, destitute of humus and ,
liable to get hard and bake, the
conditions are entirely different.
The corn does its work slowly. Its 1
roots do not find food at every j
turn. The effect of plowing does ,
not last long : another is soon j
needed; it cannot be laid bv early i
If the soil could be plowed only
an inch deep strictly speaking
and this could be done without
breaking down leaves and stalks,
and it would be well to continue
plowing corn up to the time the
gram is m the dough state. But
the conditions we have laid down
are almost practically impossible.
It is hard to gauge plows to run
in doing it, as soon as his back i.-
turued. deeper the plow goes down
into the ground. A shallow-running
plow is harder to hold steady
the negro wants to be relieved
from the labor of holding it to its
place and he likes to see a plow

The Trial oT Jacob Miarp.
New York, June l'l!. --.Jacob
. Sharp tottered into court this mot n
ing looking weird and worn, with
hardly a vestige of color in his
wrinkled and woe begone face.
! The reason for this was that he had
passed a terrible night, not even
getting as much sleep as was his
lot Saturday night. Mrs. Sharp,
, who had been privileged to remain
with him had been assiduous in her
attentions to her sick husband and
had not rested one moment during
the entire night. With the begin
ning of the reading by Mr, Nicoll
of his testimony before the Senate
investigating committee the first
business was to again adjourn the
June term of Oyer and Terminer to
Monday, July 11, after which Har
rison D. Kerr, one of the Seventh
Avenue directors, was called as a
witness for the prosecution, but he
failed to respond. Semate stenog
rapher Correll was recalled to the '
stand, while the balance of the testi
mony of Sharp before the senate!
committee, or so much thereof as
the prosecution desired, was read
by the assistant district attorney.
'Mr. Nicoll finished reading the
1 testimony at 11. 17 and rested the
case for the people. Ex-Alderman

acted" as though he was fearful that
the state s best witness was going
o turn trator aud he must do
something to prevent it. Ten
minutes' rest was taken after the
prosecution closed, alter which Mr.
Parsons arose and commenced the
opening address in behalf of the de
fence. Mr Parsons spoke five hours, not
including the time taken for recess.
He concluded with an appeal to the
jury not to be influenced by any
thing but the evidence in detenn
ing their verdict. During the in
termission after Mr. Parson's ad
dress, Dr. Looinis examined Sharp
in one of the ante rooms. He pro

We have a class of good farmers in the

ous. i ou can hear tneir gee-haw at
day break, and the crackling of their
burning brush heaps at nine o'clock at
night. All merry, no mortgage on their
homes. They are the true cause of the
South'a seeming prosperity. Theu we
have a large class of farmers that have
no rule to work by: they have forgotten
the old time get up before day rule.
They have let the good old tan trough
rot. The old loom has ceased her "go
bang, bang.'" They buy too much cali
co, and, to put all in a nutshell, they
live too fast They have too much self
confidence, i. e., buy too much on a
credit. Hence comes the mortgage.
And we have another class of farmers
that do not work at all living by the
same rule too fast until they have
about fizzed out. Now. as soon as the
late war closed, if all the farming
classes had gone to work in the right
manner, lived at home and boarded at
same place, tanned their own leather,
wore and made their own clothes,
bought little, paid cash, I say today the

You can recognize and trace the course
of any stream of water by the rich ver
dure, the waving shrubbery and the
blooming flowers that spring up and
flourish along its banks. You can trace
it it may be for miles, until you come
to some bright and laughing stream,
w-hich i3 the mother and source of all
this life and beauty. And such is the
Bible: what words can describe the
flowers and. fruit that spring along its
path! But of all these earthly benefits
and blessings, its intluence upon human
and upon our liomes is the most markka
and beautif ul. Yes. the precious and
holy names of sister, daughter, wife,
mother and home- through the intluence
of the Bible and the Christian civiliza
tion it alone and always produces, are
live words of humanity, which alone
the language that our angels use,
speaks to us mortals cf happiness and
love. They he on the heart like the
dew-Jrop -n the rose, sweetening and
refreshing it. The index and measure
of our real civilization is the character
of our women raid o..r hemes. .V. C.
