If one wants to grow weeds turn the subsoil on the top, if anv other crop let as liUJn n( the subsoil come on1 the top ay possible. To confine mv comments to as lit- tle space as possible I will say that the plow that is being used all over tlic west much to do with the weed growing. If the plow or other tool liiiit will (lop the soil riRht over as you would a pancake is the best to grow weeds, and on the other hand if (he plow sets the furrow on edge tlic sown crop wil! have the start of the weeds and keep ahead. Of course, we must expect objec- tions lo any alterations in the pres- ent shape of the plow, specially when thr quantity of the work that can he done wiih them when compared with thai done with the old style plow. The fault is not with the farmer that the country is full of weeds, hut with the plow maker and until a plow is furnished thai will not throw rlio subsoil on the surface iliierc will he nothing but weeds, weens, and it will only he, in rare seasons thai a full grown crop witl be grown. I will go as far as to challenge anyone to successfully dis- pute; what i.s here written. There is nothing to hinder a plow to he made, that with the same or 1 less draught to do us much wotk in the satin1 time and .set the furrow on edge a.s the old walking plow did. In furrow would fold over on its edge and so carry its own weight, where- as the weight of the soil is on the present plow until it is completely thrown over. Thanking you for space, Yours truly, J.
