Sweet potntoos should bo grown In
every homo garden unless the space
Is very limited. Twenty to CO feet of
row will givo n nlco treat for ninny
inoals and a Inrger space can often
be devoted to this crop. Sweet pota-

kinds of soil nearly as well ns on

potatoos will not grow well In a soil
that Is wnter-logged or which Is stiff
tenacious or badly run down.
Plants can usually bo purchased at
30 to CO cents a 100. Unless a person
expects to plnut several hundred It Is
not udvlsable to grow them. Tho
ground should be prepnrcd hoforo the
plants nro secured. The soil should bo
plowed and worked deeply. There Is
no necessity for ridging for sweet po-
tntoos as was formerly thought nocos-
wiry na Just ns good crops can bo
grown on lovol ns on ridged soil.
U'horo tho soil la very stiff tho potn-

As soon ns tho plants nro secured
thoy should ho planted. A good way
to plant la to mnko holes with n point-
od stick plnco tho plants In the holes
and pack tho soil firmly about tho
roots. Ilo sure that no opon spnecs
aro left at tho bottom of the holes. A
spado tuny be used Instend of a stick
If tho soil Is not Arm enough to hold
open when n stick Is used.
Tho cultivation of sweet potntoes
should bo nbout tho same as any other
garden crop. Tho vines should never
bo allowed to tnko root. To avoid this
thoy should ho lifted every few days.
Sometimes the vines nro wrapped
around tho hill. If tho growth of vino

This will throw tho strength Into tho

BEST RESULTS IN TOBACCO
Only Choice Individual Plants Should
e Used and Should Have Me-
dium to Stout Stalk.
Tho selection of seed plants in tho
field from among tho growing crop
gives best results In tobacco seed Im-
provement according to experiments
conducted by tho agricultural experi-
ment station of tho University of Wis-
consin. Only chnlco Individual plants
should bo selected. The custom of re
serving a portion of tho field for seed
regardless of the character of tho
plants should novor bo practiced.
A typical plant should hnvo a me-
dium to stout stnlk so as to be able
to uphold tho plant during windy
weather. The loaves should bo ar-
ranged compactly on the stnlk nnd
should grow close to tho stnlk. The
broader and moro rounded tho leaf la
the moro valuable it is since n larger
number of blndors or wrappers enn bo
cut from It. Prominent ribs nro objec-
tlonnbln to tho cigar manufacturers.
The lenves should be thin nnd elns-
t'c and n cured leaf should possess
flexibility and elasticity. Good leaves
have little or no leaf stnlk nnd do not
tnper from the stem end but expand
directly from tho stnlk.
When tho plants nro ready to flow-
er nil side shoots nnd all Mowers that
do not rlso from tho central stalk
Bhould bo removed permitting only
tho early central Mower clusters to

tho sldo shoots do not produco as
stiong seeds ns do contral shoots.
Dry Land for Sheep.
It Is generally well known that
sheop require n reasonably dry oil-
mnto nnd land that Is well drained
but It ofton happens that farmers un-

land thnt Is too wot to plow for crops.
If sheep nro kept on such land for any
length of time troublo Is sura to fol-

nnd thoy must hnvo dry ground to

Humus has been cnlled tho "bread

Hits of wire from hay baling nro

NOTES OF THE ORCHARD.
There Is no dnnger of overstocking
tho market with small fruits and
thoro Is llttlo competition for tho man
who grows tho best.
In applying fertilizers to tho orchard
spread them evenly over nil tho
ground Hoots of mature trees extend
ovor all tho urea.
Glvo fruit trees plonty of light air
room nnd root feeding area. There Is
more danger of sotting trees too closo
together than too far npart.
Many fnrmors consider their orchard
ns strictly n sldo Issue. If thoy would
glvo tho trees proper attention thoy
would derive a good proflt.
Whon you prima young npplo and
penr trees go slow. Hotter tako two or
threo years to get a neglected orchard
lu ahnpo than to do it at once.
