The greater excellence of "sod-corn"

,h s shows that green manuring is best
for corn. The ham-yard ana stabln

aud vegetable crops, while grasses auJ

Sod ground is tictt-'r plowed in the
fall, ;n my opinion. The sod can not
viehi the Torn any avalable plant, food
until deeonipo-ed. and if plowed in the
u.it limn it will partlv decompose during
the winter and be ready for the corn
iu the .-jir ng. For the same reason the
-eed-be.1 can bo m jre easily prepar-d if
the sod is turned under in the autumn,
and there xvill be no tough pieces of .-od
to iuter.'ere in cultivat.oii of the corn.
The great ob ection to the fall plowing
of the o.her g-ound - that it .-olid ties
during the winter does not apply to sod
ground. It xvill -een that lam a strong
advocate of the fall plowing of sod.
1 et I iiave raised splendid crops of corn
upon sod b okeu in the Miring. The
breaking should be done early" before
the mots have become strong and tough.
Qu te frequently .-od can be plowed be
fore other ground is dry enough to plow
if corn is to bo put upon stalk ground
the stalks should be effectually disposed
of. It is no economy of time to simply
drag the stalks down leaxnng them up
on the p o;md to hinder and vex
th ouphout the cultivation of the corn.
Two modes of disposal are worthy of
common :ation: cutt np into bits with a
cutter, and raking them into windrows
and burning them. The last method is
the most laborious and not infrequeutl
a rain come- upon the windrows delay
ing the burning of the stalks and mak

cultivation is concerned as effectually
as rak.ng aud burning. 1 prefer one
with spiral knives. The knives should
be .-harp and the stalk- quite dry.
I am uot what could be called an ad--oc.it"
of deep plowing but 1 plow deep
I for corn deeper than for oats and
wheat, i he only reason which 1 navo
to g.x-e for this is that I iclieve I raised
the be.-t crops on deep, plowed ground.
Corn is a gros- feeder, and if only a
.-hall v seed-bed is prepared it xxill be
come itnprot criahed iu a few years.
Deep plowinp is antagonistic to drouth
and our corn" erops are most often cut
short by drouth in niid-summor and
earl v autumn. And tin- -"round should

then loo-en it enough to Have a good
-o-d-bed without tearing .-ods face up
xvard to prow among the corn. Apropos
of thorough plowing for corn I xvish to
-ay that it is a common mi-taken notion
t at any boy xviio can hold the plow
alonp tne furrow can do a good job of
plowing, or at least one good enough.
I re (tieiitly see boys plow.ng who are
-o small that thev must reach. up to the
plow handles. The boy may be a good
bov but he is too small to plow. To
mao pood work with a walking plow
is a man's work. A plow should be
held to cut a uniform depth and xvidh.
I ha e found it to he decidedly risky
to u-e a roller upon corn ground unless
the harrow immediately lollows it. 1
bel eve in a liberal use of the roller
upoB ground in the fall, becau-o then
the ground i- dry and hard rains intre
quent, 15ut in the spring the ground is
wet and sticky; the rolier Tloes not
i ru-h the lumps, it only spreads them
out into flat layers, and when a hard
ra n come-, and -tich rains are frequent
in the spring, it puts the grouud in
worse condition than it xva-s before it
xvas plowed. I got augi t in this xvay
several times, and -ad experience taught
me to be exceedingly careful how 1
used the roller on corn ground. Gen
erally the lumps are so so t that a har
row will cut and pulverize them, mak
ing a Letter so d-bed man a roller
woul !. However, a roller may be
safely used if it is followed by a harrow.
The drag does work equally as well as,
if not better, than the roller, and the
objections to the roller do not applv
Although I do not advise the use of
tie: roller upon corn ground I must not
be utxler-tood as impliedly- saying that
corn ground should not be put in tiie
x-ery be-t of condition tor the seed.
Half of the work of cultivation may be
done before the seed i- planted and it
is economy of time and labor to do so.
Tiie ground under and immediately
a otiud the hills can not be stirred after
the seed is plant-d. and if it is not pul
verized before planting it must remain
lumpy throughout the sca-on. Ground
yield- sustenance to crops only in pro
portion as it i- in a fine cond.tion: if
the ground is lumpy when the seed is
planted the plant- must laniish at the
c imiiieiicement of their growth, and
this stunting w 11 bo perceptible all the
season; ou the other hand, if the grot nd
has been put iu line tilth, the plan s
will be vigorous from the very incep
tion of their growth, and this superior
ity will be noticeable dttrinp the season.
Another advantage of the thorough
preparation of the seed-bed is that the
after work of cultivation can Le better
and more easily done. The price of a
good corn crop is intelligent, thorough
work from the very beginning. John

Two of a Kind.
Th:re are two members of the House
,vho hax-e twin brothers who greatly
resemble them. The legislators who re
joice in duplicates are Phil Thompson,
f Kentucky, and Representative Horr,
f Michigan. It is not an unusual thing
for Mr. Thompson's brother to tr him
self gathered by the arm by one of the
Hon. Phil's Democratic colleagues and
dragged in on the floor of the House,
and the injunction thundered in his ear,
"Why the dickens don't you get in your
seat and vote? Our bill is upon its pas
sage."' The other day Mr. Horr's brother ap
proached the main door of the Hou-e,
.tnd the polite Democrat in charge
promptly snatched open the green baize
door and bowed him in on the House
floor. The Michigan twin strolled over
to his brothers seat, sat down, and took
part in all the opening ceremonies of
the legi-lative day except that he failed
to answer the roll call. Representative
Reed, of Maine, who has some tieouliar
way of identifying the Horr brothers,
concluded he would hax-e a little fun,
ami slipped over and po-tod the Door
keeper. That functionary -talked over to
the desk of the Michigan"' Statesman, and
informed the intruder that he must come
out, "Hut," said the occupant of the
chair, im name is Horr: I'm ironi Mich
igan." The Democratic Doorkeeper
looked hard at tiie intruder, and would
have weakened had not Mr. Reed tnude
sign- for him to go ahead: that it was all
right. "Uut you are not Representative
Horr," said the guardian of the House,
"and you mn-t come outside." Just
then the real Representative of the
Eighth Michigan District came in. and
the Doorkeeper glared at the two in evi
dent dismay. "All right." said Repre
sentative Horr. to his brother; "you go
outside and I'll come out aud talk to
vou." As the twin pa-ed out the Door
keeper took a sort of mental photograph
of him with his eyes, and said to his
chum: "I'll be hi owed if he comes that
panic on me again." In a moment or
two Mr. Horr left the floor and joined
his brother in the corridor. After they
had finished their chat the Representa
tive said to his brother: "You go in
now and take my seat again." As he
passed the portal the Doorkeeper smiled
confidently and said: "All right, -ir, I
know which i- xvtiich now." When cit
izen Horr wa again in his brother's
-eat. Mr. R'-ed again beckoned to the
Doorkeeper and -aid: -Great heavens!
vou've let the wronp man in again."
and then pointed to Represontive Horr,
who was coming in from another door.
The liewildrred Doorkeeper looked at
the two Horrs. and then as thn cold
-wvat gathered ou hi- brow, he stam
mered out: "For Heax-en's sake, mark
'em some way. or I'm likely to turn the
ither fellow in a caucus any night."

I be'ieve I have leen sax-od from a terri-blt-
illness l-y Ali.coci:'s I'oi-.ous I'L.xSTmis.
Atxjur a month ago I xvas attacked with
a violent pain iu mv clinst, accompanied
by a fevrr and Kreat difficulty in breath
ing. I apprehended pneumonia, which is
no prevalent at present; I went to IhhI and
apjdied one Allcock's Plaster iietween mv
ssoalder blades aud two on my chest. In
nn hour my breathing was mueh easier, in
two hoars the pain had leftme.and the next
morning I awoke jierf oily free from f-ver.
I went about my hii-ines- as usual, and at.
tie- end of a week took the plasters off.
For the last ton ynr? Allcock's Plas'ors
have been used by my family with the liest
effect in colds, coughs, nml pain in the side
aud back. E. B. Shcrxvood.

I first saw what a x-ery fitienmiedy All
cock's Porous Plasters were when they
cured my wife of as:hma, and when I was
nttacked xvith pneumonia, some three
mouths ago, 1 fir-.t thought of Allcock's
Plasters. By the advice of my physician
I p aced txvo under each shoulder-blade
and two on my chest; in a few hours I
breathed easier, the congestion of the
lungs xvas much less, the icy feeling down
my spine and in my back vanishe-1; the
plaster. sodu made me so warm that I
broke out in a profuse perspiration, and iu
three days 1 was well and attending to my
aff.vlrs. I oujht to say that I took two
Bravpreth's Pills every nihtfor over a
week, which I thiuk helped me a good deal.
