These machines make the celebrated GROVER !r
BAKER STITCH, which has taken the highest premi
um at the Illinois State Fair, in September last, at the
United States Fair in St. Louis, in 18G0, and at the
principle State Fairs throughout the country.
Competent judges gave a uecision in iavor or ims
stitch, on account of its great strength and adaptation to
all kinds of family and manufacturing purposes.
The following Table will show the difference in favor
of Sewing Machines over theold method of .stitching by
hand. Ia the working of these .Machines tliero is not
only a great saving of labor and time, besides adding
greatly to the healthfulnessof theeinployuwu , but the
stitch is much stronger, more elastic, aim n?s r.abie to

Cass. County Farmers Club.
We extract the following frcin thepro
ce(dinjs of the Cass county, N. T.,
Farmer's Club, held at Plattsmcu.h,
March 1st, 1SG2 :
The Special Order for this meeting
being called up, Mr. S. Cole stated
that he had raised flax-seed in Eastern
Iowa, but the crop did not do well
thought that a yield of ten bushels per
acre would pay farmers well to raiss a
few acres each year, and not raise
quite as much wheat.
Mr. Cardwell had raised flax-seed
in Iowa. Did not thresh it, but thought
it would have yielded quite largely
thinks that three pecks of seed per
acre is the right quantity to sow, for
the purpose of raising seed only.
Mr. Thomas had raised no flax-seed
in thia country had raised some in
Indiana- thought from the nature of
the soil that it could be raised here
with profit. Mr. Thomas thought that
flax-seed should be sown after a corn
Mr. Maxwill had sent for- seven
bushels of seed, for the purpose of
trying the experiment of raising the
The subject of the qualities of dif
ferent kinds of seed wheat was then
Mr. Thomas had sown Goose wheat,
Black Sea wheat, and Red Chaff
bearded wheat. Thought that Black
Sea and Red Bearded wheat had suc
ceeded best with him. Goose wheat
was too apt to smut.
Mr. Teter T. Beaver thought that
Red Bearded wheat was the most pro
fitable to raise, as it did not smut, and
was not apt to rust.
Mr. S. Cole wa3 of opinion that
China wheat and. Goose wheat were
the best qualities to raise. Thought
that sowing the last of March would,
in a great measure, prevent the wheat
from smutting. ; :
Mr. Failing stited that he had not
raised any wheat in this Territtry;
but knew that thoso who freighted to
ti.2 tacuntai: 3 a!"- ivs pre fern d buying
iiour made cf v. hiie wheat, and iho'ight
that m Lite; wheat '.wild be much mere
profitable to raise than red wheat, so
it always commanded a higher price
in the market.
Mr. Conner last year sowed one
acre of wheat on wheat stubble with
out plowing, only harrowing the wheat
in; and found when he harvested that
it yielded double the number of bushels
per acre, that it did when the stubble
Mr. Archer thought that Goose
wheat was the best to raise here. It
yielded quite well usually would sell
tor more in the market and was not as
liable to fail before harvesting as the
Mr. Cardwell had raised Goose
wheat principally since he had lived
here ; thought it would generally yield
better than Black Sea ; v,a3 nota3 apt
to full from high winds as the Black
Sea; it always brought in markei from
five to fifteen cents per bushel more
than the Black Sea.
Mr. Maxwell thought that China
wheat was the best kind to sow. Tho't
a farmer should sow not less than three
kinds of wheat thought it would be
well for each farmer to sow one-fourth
of the crop with Black Sea wheat
Goose wheat was apt to smut and rust
the China wheat was apt to scatter
out if not harvested at just the right
Mr. Geo. Jennings (owner of a
Flour Mill on the South Weeping Wa
ter) being present, w;ii called upon to
give his experience in regard to the
different kinds of wheat, lie thought
that the Goose, Scotch Club, (or Fife)
and China wheat, were the best kinds
of wheat to raise. Mr. J. F. Buck
had raised 175 bushels of Scotch Club
upon 5 acres weighed GO to 64 pounds
to the bushel. Thought that China
would flour better than any other kind
of wheat thought it was the best
quality to raie. It would make from
0 to 10 sacks more flour per hundred
bushels than Black Sea wheat tho't
it was poor policy for farmers to mix
different kind3 of wheat together."

each way, and when the plants get a
fair start to thin out, leaving but onft'

all the suckers grow up to maturity
that may spring from thi3 single plant.
This plan will result in from four to
eight good stalk3 to each hill, and
avoid the interminable and unsatisfac

equivalent on top to prevent the effect:!
of alternate freezing and thawing.

Smut In Wheat A rrcTcnllTC.
Mr. Joel Draper, cf Otoe county,
Nebraska, in a letter to the Nebraska
City JVeu-, recently, say3: .
Having had twenty year3 expm
ence in raising spring wheat on Illi
nois peairie soil, vrhere wheat is most
liable to be smutty ; I have thought
best to give you my method of treat
ing wheat before sowing, which I con
sider a sure preventive, while those ia
my vicinity have raised almost as much
smut as wheat.
My method is, to secure 3 or 4 qrcarta
of fresh slacked dry lime, to a busael
of wheat, a quantity of salt, two tabs,
a large basket, a paddle, skimmer, and
a seive. I put into one of-the tub3
enough water to cover well one bushel
of wheat, then add salt enough to make
a very strong enne ; pour in siowiy a
half .bushel. of wheats stirring it thor
oughly while pouring, then skim tha
thickest of the foul stuff off, and pcrur
in the other half bushel ; stirandskinr
thoroughly, place the basket over the
tlUkJ .wits, v.v . f v vuw ktJUW UU
wheat into it ; I then sift a thin layer
of lime on a floor, put on a thin layer
of wheat; then a layer of lima and "so
on, until the basket is empty; shovel'
it over until well mixed, put it in a
barrel or box, and let it stand twelve
hours or morebefore sowing, the long
er the better, aa it will not injure ia
this condition. Serve the- remainder
of your seed in the same manner, add
ing water andsalt a3 it becomes neces
sary. Sow on a dry day, when the
land is dry, and no smut will make its
appearance. Never put clean wheat
for seed into flour sacks, or sow it ia
the mud, a3 either will produce srr.it
and when it isonce produced it rill-!,
crease fourf!d every year, until s-""
reidy to prevent is used.
