John m. Goodwin i John Eldon j committee. La Wrinck Jordan \ Comfort to those who grow Couch grass. This grass to which so Many names have iwo Given and which on account of its to. Ing so difficult to kill is most generally known by the expressive Rui Iuo of " Witch grass in considered by Loiue As a curse and by others a Blessing. In gardens where you cannot put in the plow on account of j the shrubby &c., but have to cultivate by Spade and hand Hoe it is a very serious pest but in Field culture it is not after nil so very Forin Diable provided you plow it right and Rise Tho horse hoc or cultivator seasonably. We bad a Field covered with it last Spring. This wus slowed with one of Tho Michigan double plows a plow by the Way. Which we very much like. Tho Forward plow turned a Furrow about four inches thick and dropped it into the Bottom of the j Furrow previously made this took a slice 1 of the Witch gnus Down to its roots and 1 plunged it to the Bottom of a Furrow eight or ten inches deep. Trio next Mould Board i followed and covered it completely out of j sight so tint when Tho ground ploughing i was finished scarcely a sprig of it was seen. I of course it did not trouble Tho crop during the summer. But this process Cid not kill it. Ciuco Tho fall Rains cat no on it shows itself again. Probably a deeper Furrow would keep it \ Down. It can thus be kept Down during the summer at least while you wish to cultivate the land toothed summer crops. If you wish to s for grating. Or n Hay crop to really do not know of a better variety. To find that Tho opinion or Baliol 111 its bin a Superior variety for pasturage or mowing is mining ground. To find in the Loconto v published transactions of the n. 11. Agricultural society that a committee in a report upon grasses la t year to said Sociol j to hold the following language. " in Tho first rank to place Couch grass j trill non listens a grass that is beginning to be appreciated upon the Merrimack but which has usually l can condemned As a cur a upon a " it is a Stocky Hearty clean Sweet grass and if Firo Nerly Cut and cured will command a higher Price in Tho Market where it is known than herds grass. In addition to this it has other Peculiar . It Wil promo Gate from the Root As Well and from Tho seed will accommodate itself to poor As Well Sis Well Rich Laud dry As Well to moist land growing most luxuriantly upon Medows and in in volleys and still not refusing a fair growth upon a Plain a gravel Bank or a Sand Knoll. Such a grass is invaluable but it has its drawbacks. Onco in Tho soil it is there for a life time. It cures Lillo for plow or Hoe cutting it Only multiplies it for this reason it is considered a curse in n Field of tillage. It is a grass that will not to kept under by tillage fur this reason it is invaluable. It will grow upon Light soils and produce Well. Hut Tho True secret is to sow it on our lauds und cultivate it by of dressing. Onco sown apply ton dressing and tie soil need not to touched with plow or hoc Lor a Quarter of a Century. If Tho crop ails in in its upon knolls or other places apply a heavy Harrow on extra sprinkling of manure a of Liberal Quantity of Couch seed har Row again and Roll and the work is done. A Field kept in Couch grass in this was will product a greater profit in Hay than if kept in Tho usual m Cara since upon the intervals of Tho Alcor iliac this grass was considered As a curse by Tho Farmers goner ally but within Tho lost Twenty five years it has coins to to considered of equal if not greater value for Hay than herds grass. I the More its qualities arc considered and i its adaptation to soils and appropriate in Ltd i vation Are studied Tho More reliable it will pruning Orchards. It is a very Good Rule Ami Trio nearer it is followed the better Liat no shoot be allowed to remain on a tree that will require removal at any future Lime. By observing the form which a Young tree should take ind lob Bing or cutting Oil improper or unnecessary shoot in time any severe pruning at a subsequent period May be entirely avoided. Hence the remark has some truth in it hat pruning saws and axes should never enter an Orchard which is strictly Correct in All eases provided the Needles shoots have looped or i time Whon the Woik May be done with the pocket knife Only. A very common error is to allow the growth of Loo i Many branches the result of which is they become Loo much crowded a part die the leaven and new growth Are Small and imperfect and As a necessary consequence the fruit is half grown and stunted the head should therefore to loft open the branches few and so evenly distributed through space that none shall be crowded and All subjected to air mid Sunshine and All continue Thrifty and vigorous. A mod write share of Caio and attention to these particulars might to made to give a very Dill want report of our Orchard irom lliat1 now presented in the great mass of Apple now sold in Market. Larger prices larger crops and bettor satisfied purchasers would be Tho result and most stick ugly so provided Good cultivation was Given in connection with judicious pruning. Now is pm time that your Orchards should be Ora irined ail treated in the Way to have Pontod cultivator. Fink Kindi Krs.
