Mb. Editor: As ihe time for
phin'ing out trees of every desctip'bn
is at hand, ar.d feeling the importance
and necessity of turning our attenti n
immediately to the cultivation of tm-
her m this wes'ern coun'ry, I though.!
I would give you a brief synop-is of
what I propose to do, viz.
I take 20 acres of Mulble ground,
mark it off" one way with a heavy mar
ker, go onio the sand bar of the Mo
River and pnU up cotiomvjod sprou's
of l.i?t summer's growih, say about
fifteen or twenty inches in hpig!ith,
(they can be pulled l.ke fl tx) arid had
a wagon in a few hours, lying them
with other sprouts into bundles of a
convenient s-ize. Now for planting:
rny ground being marked one way, I
tak3 a land, straight and of equal
wiitha!! the way, run a furrow round j
ii dropping corn in the furrow opposite
the cross maik-; the dropper carrying
a bundle of sprouts under his arm and

betting one in every atternaie hi I of,
corn; the plow coniiwUing, turns three

In the fall sew rye, using a double
rhovol, next season turn in hos for a
short lime, then stir with a double
I ! s-hovel or riding low and raise the
5econd crop of rye, and turn in hogs
as brfore. Two years from this spring
I propese to run a furrow each way
between my coltonvoods, and set out
locust sprouts which being well
haded by the cottonwoods will grow
straight and thrifty. I have tritd to
con len.se ii.to a few lines what might
occupy several pages, but I ihink ti e
idea will be apparent. Let some, or I
will ay all, of our farmers figure upon
the profit if the above operation.
My figures are already made, but I
want every farmer to investigate the
subject for himself.
What will be the actual ou'Iay of
pul ing out that amount of timbei?
How many uees will yon have, and : have succeeded best to sow as early in
ho'v many rails or feel of lumber will ; March as possible and not to harro.v
you have ta the tree, iu, say ten years, j ihe ground previous lo sowing, but
also how much wood, and af presen: j harrow it thoroughly as soon after so w
and prospective rates what will all "his j ing as possible. Frequently after a
be worth? What is the land now worth j rainy season corn fields are covered
and what will be the interest on that with a weed that keeps green all win-
amout.l forten years? Also how many
posts Sec. wiM you have from your lo
cust, and what are they worth? I have
had some experience in this western
country and have known trees ten and ;
twelve years old to make 50 rails and ,
half a cord of wood each. There an
o her kinds of limber that are profi
table to cultivate, and I may at some
fuitire time endeavor to notice some of
ihem and, if it meets your 'approbation,
cive some of my experience and views
in a more comprehensive style.
?2yDont say so much for ihe pros
peris of your town; we know that they
are good, but people at a distance know
other towns in Nebraska better ihan
they do I'iatlsiiiou'.h, and with such,
your assertion might prove injurious io
you. Give us the fL'-'re-s and let Ua
see how you tiand. F,ujhs PcaS

j.iUt wj,e you recoinmenJ us nut to say !
so much for the prospects of our town, I
we think it best not to leave It to ihe
press of other cities to do for us. Our
experience of their magnanimity is not
over flattering io ihem, and we con
clude that our business will be more
successful if we attend to it ourselves. J
As to figures, ihat suggestion of yours
is wicked, for you know that Colhap
might come down on us.
We see by late di-pat.hes thai a
! German named Sturlz is ursing upon
the berretary of tin; lreasury the pro
pri'ty of issuing U. S. Land script,
to be sold in Germany to people who
wih to em grite to this country.

Tins would undoubtedly he a good ar-
gument. It would mJuce many to
remove to this country who would oth
erwie rriiiuin where tliey are, and
it would as?ist in dispsingof govern
ment land at a fair price. There is
no cl iss of men we would raiher see
settling in the west than Germans.
They are, ai a ciass, honel, inJus-
irous people, and make ilie very besi
of citizens. Let land script be issued
en'itlnig the holder to a cenam num
ber of acres to be selected by him up
on arrival in ".his coun ty, and 11 would
bring to the west an immense emi
gration. It wouUi soon cause our fer

i given away. The ddsire of thousands

j so small; anil no other one ihin woulJ
upon their arrival.
Thalihe so.l of Nebraska is ad-
mirably adapud to ihe cultivation off
wheat, no one familiar with the Ter- '
ritory will djny and tint we are soon
lo have Railroad facilities both east and
west for the tran-poriion of ihe pro
ducts of ihe soil I think is equally clear.
My expeiionce in f.trming'ia this Ter
ritory confirms me in the belief that lo
be succe.-sful we must raise grain as
well as keep siock. But ai present 1
do not desire to t!icuss the relative
profits of grain and sloe;:, but to call
attention lo the cultivation of wheat.
The only rotation thai we purine (if
it can be called a rotation) is lo raise
alternately corn and wheat, and ojr
heaviest crops of wheat are raised on
ground on which corn was raised ihe
previous year. In ordinary years 1
ter aul if nit er.iJic.ued will smother
out a wheat crop. A very good way to
destroy it is to lake a double shovel
i pjow and follow as clos-i to the corn
rsws as possible and turn the dirt away
from the rows, ilien thoroughly harroiv
across the rows. I do not ihitiu that
wheat does as well put in wi h a turn
ing plow as that which is harrowed or
cultivated in. Several reasons might
be given for ihis, it covers the wheat
loo deep and leaves the soil loo ljjse,
and whtat succeeds best on a compact
soil, and it turns up soil in which the
humicacid is not disolved by the action
of the atmosphere. Of the varieties
of wheal ihat are found here perhap
a pissing remark will not be inappro
pidie. The Goose or Ciub wheat, on
account of its tending io sm it has buen
genera ly discarded. The Black Sea
is regarded by our millers as too hard,
the straw is soft, and on very rich soil
ishable lo fall down before it is ripe.
Iis advantages are, it ripens about a
week sooner than Chim. a-id usutlly
... u v . i r
yields well. Scotch ite and K
, . - r
wheat are different naiies for ihe
same variety, and perhaps il yields ihe
most and makes die best flour of nny

best preventative of smut is to sow
j clean seed, and whatever variety i,

less he sows a sufficient amount of seed
per acre and thoroughly cultivates and
' harrows the ground.
