Mustard in Grain Fields.
The plant referred to scarcely needs
description , as it is so common , al
though the accompanying illustration
will impress the reader with its iden
tity. The flowers are yellow and the
leaves soft , somewhat resembling those
of rape , cabbage , turnips , etc. ; in fact
mustard belongs to the same family of
plants as those named. It Is one of the
most serious of all the weed pests. This
is due to the fact that it ripens its seed
before most of the cereals , so that the
ground is again seeded down for an
other year. But this is not all. The
seeds are so oily in their nature that
they have been known to remain in the

when buried so deeply as to preveni
germination , and yet after this tim <
have grown vigorously. It is becaus <
of this chracteristic that it is specially
important to prevent wild mustarc
from seeding. In fields where the plants
'are few in number the labor expendec
[ by way of pulling them up by rool
Jwould be most profitable.
; Where it is not practical to pull oul
'mustard , owing to the large amount
present , it may be advisable to mak (
the cereal crop into hay rather than al
low it to ripen. If some such plan as
this is not adopted where fields are bad
ly infested with mustard it may be nee
essary in the near future to allow the
land to lie idle and adopt the summer
fallow system in order to get rid of the
pest. This would be an instance where
an ounce of remedy would be worti
many pounds of cure. Iowa Home
Table for Handling Grapes.
I have seen large , heavy tables for
this work in many grapehouses , upon
which the grapes were emptied from
the trays to be sorted , trimmed and
packed into baskets. I do not favoi
this method of treating grapes. I think
the less they are handled the better.
The p'acking table shown makes it pos
sible to take the grapes out of the tray
stem by stem as wanted by the packer
and thus avoid the emptying out of the
grapes. The table is so constructed
that a tray fits into it tipped up suffl-

Evaporated or Dried Potatoes.
"Dried potatoes" is the name of .1
new product evolved by the South Car
olina Agricultural Experiment Station
The potatoes are boiled , peeled am ,
evaporated in a cannery , and will re
main in perfect condition for years. The
preserved potato becomes fit for eatlnc
after being soaked in warm water foi
an hour. Like many other new ideas
this promises to be a big thing , and it.c
development may have a great effect or

It is reported that an acre of potatoes
yielded 357 bushels , which made 10. :
bushels of the dried product , nearly : i
pound to 3l/2 pounds of the raw product

say anything about it , probably the
sweet potatoes can be subjected to the
same process. American Cultivator.

Plowing by Steam.
An exchange tells of an experhm
in plowing by steam near Lena-
Junction. The field was about eigl
rods long , containing a little over thii
acres. The engine was attached tc
four-gang plow , which turned furro
about sixteen inches wide 'ind sev
inches deep , and it laid them over vc
even and smoothly. It took just sev
minutes to make the trip of eigl
