vrlety which has bceu jut roil m od witliin

heavy-strawod wheat, with n very Ion?
largo berry. Several farmers have tried

Mind-h !lV" prnitfp largely. Still it hns
not bucomQ a favorite. - In the trials to
.which wheat has beeu submitted for the
past three years, the. Australian variety
seems to havo been wipeil out.
Thcro are two varieties of Tuscan
..wheat- thoTuscnu llald ond the Tuscan
Bearded. Hoth are winter varieties, nnj
were introduced frun Tuaonny into the
Stoto f New York in 1S37. Tho lierry
'of both varieties is large and whito. and
tho heads are large, compart and well
filled. Hoth varieties are tender, nnd
liable to winter kill, and this defect has
not permitted either to become generally
cultivated. Where this has not happened,
' or where the variety has been acclimated,
'it has produced heavy crops. The Messrs.
, renfield advertise Tukcnuy whcnt for sale,
and could undoubtedly procure the seed of
; any variety which tmlit bo wanted.
I,', "White Flint" and "Souto's Wheat"
are two distinct varieties, lioth are whito
wheats, nnd both are winter varieties.
The first is supposed to have been origin
ally introduced into New Jersey in 1S1 1.
from Spain. .There is also a aort uf tra
ditional claim that it was brought out from
tho Hlnck Sea. Tho strnw of the White
Flint is of medium length, not so large as
thai of eomo othor varieties, but tough,
olid towards the root, and Dot so liable to
lodge, . The bends nro a medium length,
'wiiu from thirty to forty grains in each.
The grain is whito in color, plump, not
large, but solid, with a thin stein." Mr.
Rawson Harmon, of Whontland, Monroe
oounty, New York, states that a valuable
peculiarity, is found in it, and which no
other variety possesses to a like degree,
and that is the tenacity with which the
berry adhere to the chatr. This variety
also is considered very hardy, and the
heaviest crop ever grown on the Genesee
Flats was from this variety and the lied

. The "Soule's Wheat" was first intro-
duced into notice by Jonathan Soute of
Perrington,' Monroe county, New x oru,
In 1836 or 1S37. This is a bald variety,
having a straw of inodium length, with a
heavy, full head. ' The wheat looks like
a mixture of red and white; and some
headd have . a . red chair an J ouw are
whito; t The berry is white, of medium
sixe. verv thin. skin, and vields a laruo
proportion of flour of the best quality to
the bushel. It has long boon a favorite
variety in this Stato. but of late it has de
teriorated, we thiuk, owing to want of
care in selecting the seed. Tho IMue
stein, and the " Canada "Flint, or Canada
Club, or . Iutchinson wheat, as tho latter
is sometimes called, have been found more
prolific, and havo taken the place of the
Soule's wheat with many farmers. While
others have given" up white wheat alto
gether, pn account ; of their inability to
grow it, and have taken to tho Mediter
ranean as being more hardy, and more
certain to prove profitable.
The best . cure for ihtue troublesome
thiugn 4hat we have ever tried, says the
Scientifie American, is to soak tho feet in
hot water for a quarter of an hour, so
that the corn becomes soft, and then trim
it oflf a close as possible, and not cause
pain. Then take the tincture of tho Ar
