-i ) V x GARDEN IMPLEMENTS. tJgefnl Machines for the Cultivation of the Vegetable Crop. The cultivation of a. garden should be as perfect as possible. Usually it is .supposed that hind ivoik is bettej than anacbjtfe'-work. and that the spade and. Jhoe and rake are more effcctirc than the plow and harrow and cultivator. But this. is a great mistake. In every -other industry machinery has been -better and more effective than hand -work. Machine-made watches keep "better time; power looms make better cloth; and all other machinery turn out more and better work than the 3iands, however skillful they may be come by use and habit The plow tturns over the soil as well as the spade and ten times more quickly; the har rrow pulverizes and levels the soil, and stfie cultivator works and cleans it equally better than the rake and hoe.
