Agricultural Student Gives Pointers to Grizzled Farmers. To the Chicago Kecord from SDrlagfleld.IIls: Charles F, Mills, secretary and su- perintendent ot the Illinois Farmers' institute, is printing for distribution a remarkable paper recently prepared by A. D. bhamel, 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- teresting tanners of in scien- tific 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 niF.de himseU on the college farm last summer. He planted tour rows across a big field and these four rows were divided into nine- teen plats. During the summer he had corn growing oa each plat under a different method of cultivation. Some of the plats were cultivated deep- 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 moist- ure in each plat was tested once a week during the season, so that Shamel conw tell to a nicety under what de- jree of moisture at different depths the corn of each plant was produced At tbe start Sbamel 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 :i 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 jdrs 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 ap- paratus to secure a uniform depth of cultivation. He also invented a mark- 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 sum- 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- tracted the graybeards at the start. There was not the least attempt on the part of the speaker to set up his opin- ion against that of men old enough to be his grandfather. He studiously sought to provoke criticism and discus- sion. He got both. He answered ques- 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 Sl.SOA: TEAK. Weekly.

A. F. FELGETE, GEN. MAN'GRFOR THE MODEL CLOTHING MANUFACTURING COMPANY. of the summer: "JJy a careful study of the foregoing tacts we can say that they would seern to indicate: 1. Deep cultivation tends to con- serve moisture; but it acts as a root primer which is very injurious to the plant, especially at the last of the sea- son; and this injury varies directly as the deptli of cultivation. Deep culti- vation is the best method of lidding the soil of weeds. 2. Shallow cultivation is not so useful as deep culture for the conser- vation of soil moisture, but it tends to preserve a pertect root system. That mulching conserves moisture and leaves a pertect root system; ridge culture is not beneficial and leaves the ground iu bad condition tor the follow- ing crops: 4. A combination of the deep and shallow cultivations is in the early part of the season to remove weeds and to conserve moisture, and shallow at the time of the last cultiva- tion in order to leave a good root svs- tem.

Is What the Enormous Sells Brothers' Aggregation Proves Itself to Be. "When, as they the newspapers of over a hundred cities, from Kew York to Sari Francisco inclusive, unite 111 ranking the Great Adam Forepaugh and bells Brothers' consolidated shows which are booked for Albert Lea, Sat- urday, June 11, as tar and away the biggest, most complete and perfect en- terprise of its kind, there is no honest- ly denying the fact, and envious at- tempts to do so are utterly unworthy of the slightest consideration. It is an equal raecor ia the tripartite agreement between .1. A. Bailey, W. F. Codv (Buffalo and the Sells Brothers, to divert tlie means heretofore wasted in unprofitable opposition into chan- nels which will give their "patrons much more for ttw same price of ad- mission, and not overtax the patronage of any section. It is emphatically asserted that this new and grand aggregation presents a liner parade than was ever before given. That it owns more elephants rare wild beasts, noble horses and per- tormiiig animals; uses bigger tents more cars, hires more talent, presents more signal acts, spends more money and entertains more people. That it, has the greatest performers in every branch; splendor of pageantry, cos- tumes and paraphernalia without paral- lel; the most elegant, thrilling and de- corous of performances; the linest hip- podrome; the greatest three big performing herds of them; J rarest living wonders, uowhere else to be seen. With all this and a credit and standing unsurpassed, the JSTew York Herald is amply justified in pronounc- ing it "one of the most powerful in the world." Not so Deadly After All. Tress Dispatch: There is much talk 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 corrob- orates this, aud declares that ten miles away from the badly-kept sea- coast towns, Cuba is as healthy as any country south ofrthe Potomac or Ohio. If men will eat sparingly of tropical Iruits, 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 Hies. But they did not die at all. The death rate was less in that department than any- where in the south. So it will be, it is said, with regard to Cuba. Man has always been able to live and thrive where any other man can live. Wise Way to Identify Our Soldiers.
