ij" The friends of aericuhure are
requested to assist in making the agri
cultural department of the Hlrald
interesting and useful, Ly giving their
experience on different subitcis, and
also, by asking questions with regard
to the best varieties of grain and fruit
&c, and the best manner of culnvating
gathering, preparing for market, &c
so as to call out the experience of
others. The room in the paper has
been set apart for that purpose by the
proprietor, and it is left to those who
are to be benefited to supply the neces
sary matter for making It interesting
and useful. Progress should be the
watchword of every man in our grow
ing territory, and it is by the prosperity
of the agricultural part of the popula
tion that any new country is enabled to
progress surely and rapidly, and that
can be dene in no better way than by
asbUtin? each other by communicating
what has been learned by experience
Wm. T, Parcel.
Spring is necessarily a busy time of
year with farmers, especially in this
climate, where but little of real farm
work tan be done until spring has been
with us lonjr enough to have the frost
out of the ground, and allow the plow
to be used in preparing the ground for
planting, and the Miade in difiK'ng
holes for setting posts, etc. Every
first rate farmer will have sufficient
wood cut and piled before planting time
to last through the busy season of the
year, so that time will not have to be
taken from other work to get sufficient
wood to cook a meal. The wood must
be had. and wiuttr is '.he proper time
for preparing il for the fire. The long
distance that some have had to draw
wood during the past winter should in
duce them to prepare for the fuiure,
and every one who has not timker on
his own farm should prepare to set out
several thousand every spring, until he
has sufficient to supply the firewood
and material for repairing fences and
o.her uses. The attention of fanners
has been called so often to the profits
of raiding limber that it is only neces
sary to discuss the best manner of pro
curing the trees and setting them. J.
F. D. recommended taking up co.tou
woods in the fall and keeping theai in
a pit during the winter. But eny one
who has not done so need not wail
another year to set trees, as they will i
probably do jut as well if plowed up
now and set. Cottonwood does not
need as much care in setting as mot
o:her kinds of wood. Small trees may
be plowed out, and several thousand
obtained by a day's work, and a man
or boy can drop them in a furrow as
fast as nec?sary, while another is
plowing. A farmer in this county set
7.00C last spring by dropping in a fur
row and throwing a furrow on the roots
of the trees, and had a boy to straight
en them up and tramp the dirt around
them a little to keep them upright. As
the cottonwcod is very hardy it will
grow where others would fail entirely.
J. F. D. recommended rows four feet
apart and trees two feet in the rows;
this seems to be too close. It would
be nearly 5500 trees to the acre. If
they would do well so close, at the end
of five years one half could be cut out
and would pay all the expense of set
ting and cultivating. If they were set
4 by 4 feet over 2,700 could be set on
an acre, which would be enough to sat
isfy any one, and enough to make il
an inducement to set trees.
Black walnut can be raised from the !
nuts with but little trouble. They
should be planted in the fall, or buried
where they would freeze, and planted
iu the spring. Other trees require
more labor and care in raising and
Can some one who has had experi
ence give directions for raising elm
from seed. E'm "grows quite fast and
makes a noble shade tree. Seed can
be procured easily. The trees are in
full bloom now, and the seed falls early
in summer. Wi-l those who have had
experience in raising different kinds of
timber be so kind as to communicate
their experience to their brother farm
ers through the Herald.
