AGRICULTURAL Preparation of the Soil for Wheat so . m . Tho profit arising from the wheat crop of the last two seasons having been large , a great many farmers are preparing to go into the crop extensively , and on every side we see preparations making for sowing a large breadth of land with this grain . It is this universal desire to go into whatever crop appears to be profitable , without regard to the condition of the soil , that impoverishes land and makes it more productive of weeds and noxious insects than of useful crops . , J &gt; ne acre of land naturally orartlflclally drained , being what is known as a good wheat soil , rich in all the ingredients necessary for building up the wheat plant , will produce more than two or three acres of land which has been exhausted by frequent cropping without manure . Prom a chemical examination of various crops , Professor Daubehy , of England , concluded that the failing off of a * crop after repetition depends in some degree on...

* ¦ The Geddes Harrow . [Newspaper Article] — Western Rural — 29 August 1868
* ¦ The Geddes Harrow . Among the many kinds of harrows which bave been proposed and used , tbe Geddes Harrow , of wbich we give an Illustration , has held a good poslfton for a number ol years . Its shape enables it to pass obstructions readily . It may fie doubled , back , or one side may be lifted to free it from weeds or other obstructions , and It readily adapts itself to lyjeven . ground . The plan of construction can readily be seen from tbe figure . As there is sometimes a tendency to rise in the middle , it is better to atk tach a short chain to the bar on each . side , a little distance from the front , and hitch to that instead of as . shown in the cut . It has the merit of cheapness , and may be made so as to be very durable . It has been used more in New York , where the Inventor , from whom it has received its name , resides , than In any ether State , but It certainly has many points ; which commend It as a deslrabje harrow for ordinary fitrms .

HORTICDLTDRai . Preparation for the Fain . . Very little time now remains for making preparations tor the exhibition of fruit , vegetables and flowers at the State and County Fairs . Fruit is scarce this year , • and on this account more than ordinary ex- . ertlon shonld be made to get up a creditable display . The best way of managing is for every grower , of fruit to contribute Specimens not entirely with the view of carrying off premiums or prizes , but for the , purpose of adding something to the collection . . . It will be interesting to be able to ascertain what varieties of apples ,. pears , • peaches , etc ., are best calculated to withstand the drougthand the various diseases to which fruit trees are liable . A . fine specimen of fruit labelled not for competition and accompanied with a description of the . variety , origin , mode of treatment , etc ., generally does more more good than a dozen . specimens exhibited with no other object than that of obtaining premiums .

§ $ mwtit Mmnng Edited by a Practical Honiekcepcr . Canning Corn-Wine from Frost Grapes . Please to inform me through the columns of THE WEBTEBN RURAL how to can green corn , and how tb make wine from from frost grapes ; if the pure juice will make good wine or not . I am a reader of your paper arid like it very much . W . H . P . Hobart , Ini . —No process yet discovered for canning green corn appears tally to answer the purpose . The plan followed by the Oneida Community meets with the most fovor . It is this : —Cut the corn from the cob , put it into cans , and then fill with cold water ; seal up and boil for a while , prick . a small hole in the can to let the steam escape ; then solder up tight and boil again two and a half hours , and set away for use . The preferable way of preparing green corn for future use is to dry it . There are two methods for drying it , both of which we will now- give : —When the corn is in good Condition for eating , the grains being fully grown , bo...

Agricultural Papers . [Newspaper Article] — Western Rural — 29 August 1868
Agricultural Papers . Agriculture , in this country , has been benefited more by the Agricultural Press than by all other instrumentalities combined . Schools and colleges especially devoted to that great Interest have done much already , and will do Infinitely more , as they become ¦ permanetly established and properly conducted . Fairs and exhibitions also contribute to the encouragement of Improved systems of Agriculture ,, ( we mean agriculture ln Its general sense ) but neither of these , nor both combined contribute a tithe of the benefit rendered to the farming Interest by Agricultural papers . These are and always will be the most effective teachers of the great mass of thc farming population . They are tbe reflex of the observation , experience , and thought of practical farmers and scientific cultivators of the soil . They go to almost every nook and corner of the land , for the subscription price places them within the reach of all . Every number Is fraught with valuable ...
The Lumber Region of Michigan , [Newspaper Article] — Western Rural — 29 August 1868
The Lumber Region of Michigan , From an interesting article under the above title , and written by Rev . 0 . H . Brigham , in the North American Review for July , we take the following : It Is common to speak of the pine lands of Michigan as inexhaustible . We hear of the supply that may be expected for , ages to come from this prolific source . Men think of the lumber forests Ot the Peninsula as they dojof the coal-beds of Pennsylvania , and Ohio , and laugh at the predictions of alarmists . Yet these predictions are not hasty , but are based on exact calculations . At ; the present rate of consumption , in a little over seventeen years the pine will be entirely cleared from Lower Michigan , and the lumber business will be at ah end . If consumption in the next five years should Increase in the ratio of the last five years , ten years will , exhaust the material . The most sanguine calculation cannot carry tbe lumber business beyond the present century . It is believed , however , ...

— if » » . s „ . ; The Crops . The result of our observation , correspondence and examination of our exchanges as te the wheat crop does not affect the statements we have . hitherto given . The heat and drought of July unfavorably affected the yield of wheat la many localities ; but we think there can be no doubt that the crop ls a fall one , especially when it Is considered that the area in wheat was considerably larger than last year . The present prospect tor corn is very encouraging , but It is yist too early to state positively what ths crop may be . There are localities where the wheat failed and where corn promises but a light yield , but we refer to the general result . The N . Y . Tribune has published a large number of reports received by telegraph from all parts of the country . From these tt appears that the wheat crop is larger than last year in all the Northern States , except Vermont , aud ln only four Southern States are the reports less favorable than last year . Th...
