Grizzled Farmers To the Chicago Kecord from Charles F Mills secretary and ot the Illinois Farmers institute is printing for distribution a remarkable paper recently prepared by A D who will be graduated from the college of agriculture at the university of Illinois this year Shamel 19 22 years old and in appearance is a mere boy yet he has succeeded in in- tanners of in agriculture to a greater degree than lus any one in or out of the big state institution ot the which Col Mills intends to distribute over the state is Kinds of Cultivation of In- dian Com Shamel gives the details of experiments which he on the college farm last summer He planted tour rows across a big field and these four rows were divided into teen plats During the summer he had corn growing oa each plat under a different method of cultivation Some of the plats were cultivated others shallow Some of the hills were allowed to stand on ridges others with the ground leveled about the roots Some of the plats were mulched during the whole season Koots here and there were pruned in different plats at different depths The ure in each plat was tested once a week during the season so that Shamel conw tell to a nicety under what de- of moisture at different depths the corn of each plant was produced At tbe start went into the college blacksmith shop and fashioned after his own ideas a kit ot tools with which he proposed to carry on the work He made a huge auger with stem four feet long With this he bored into the ground and abstracted a Quantity of soil which he put into a jar He bored to three eighteen and twenty-seven inches The containing the soil of each depth was labeled and weighed after which they were placed in a drying oven and subjected for twenty-four hours to a heat of 212 degrees After that the jars were again weighed The loss in weight showed the moisture of each depth plat He used a cultivator of his own in- vention which he provided with an paratus to secure a uniform depth of cultivation He also invented a ing machine by which he was enabled to get at the exact growth of a stalk of corn in a given time Recently in the presence of a com- pany of farmers some of whom had been raising corn for a half-century Shamel told of the results of his mer's work He had with him his new cultivator his long-stemmed auger a cartload of jars containing parched Illinois soil bis measuring machine and more than fifty charts on which he had illustrated the growth of stalks in the different plats The results on each plat were given in figures The manners of the young man at- the graybeards at the start There was not the least attempt on the part of the speaker to set up his ion against that of men old enough to be his grandfather He studiously sought to provoke criticism and sion He got both He answered tions as fast as they were asked now and then accepting a suggestion from some one of his audience In clear concise terms he summed up the work TEAK Weekly Bought by the

abroad nowadays about the terrors of the rainy season in Cuba Its dangers are vastly over- rated Captain Barker has been in Cuba four years and he says he has never seen but one rainy season m all that tune and it was no more to be feared than a tropical climate usually is at any time General Lee orates this aud declares that ten miles away from the coast towns Cuba is as healthy as any country south Potomac or Ohio If men will eat sparingly of tropical keep out of the dew as far as possible let spirits alone and live de- cently neither the rainy or any other season in Cuba need have terrors for them This same bete noir was abroad during the late war and when General Butler took green Yankees from the England mountains to New Orleans in April and May 1802 it was said they would die like
