A. N. Briggs says that he has
always been successful in raising
potatoes on the following plau, viz
Put them into the ground as us
ual except with only about two
inches of dirt over "them. Then,
put on straw to the depth of six to
eight inches. They need no further
attention whatever until you come
to gather them, which is done with
much less trouble than is usual.
Mr. Briggs says there is another
thing in favor "of this method, the
bugs disturb them less. A Colorado
gentleman says that two or three
grains of flax seed planted in a hill
of potatoes is a surety against bugs.

Important lo Farmers.
It is coming to be better under
stood that success in farming de
pends far more upon how much one
gets per acre than upon the number
of acres he cultivates. If a man's
time, teams, seed, implements, etc.,
arc worth or cost $500 a year to cul
tivate 50 acres, and the crops pro
duced, whatever they may be, arc
equivalent to 12 bushels of wheat
per acre, worth on an average $1 per
bushel, he has just $100 lett for in
terest of the land, taxes, etc. If the
crops equal 15 bushels per acre, he
has $250 surplus for land, etc. If
they arc equal to 20 bushels of wheat
per acre, he has $500 surplus; it 25
bushels per acre he has 750. The
same rule holds good for 100 acres,
or any other area. The great ques
tion then is how to increase the yield
per acre, with only the same cost for
labor, teams, implements, and seed.

- M. Ebcl says that Jos. Springer
recently lost three head of young

ashes (wood or corn cob ashes),
mixed with ground feed.
