Tillage is the moat important adjunct to successful dry-farming, and �upgii it depends the 'success or failure Of the crop. ' , ' Plowing : The question Is often,asked, "How deep should I plow.?." .And this is a hard question to.answer, as.a great deal depends.iOn thev, local soil and ^condition of the, same. But, in general it may emphatically be said, "Plow deep.". The depth of deep plowing Is from five to nine Inches usually but It Is not always possibly, to plow so deep, because the ground may be tOo hard, or the farmer may, not have sufflclent horse power,: or the right kind of plow. On land whore there Is a heavy clay subsoil _ near, the surface, deep plowing Is hot advisable, but on most, of our prairie land it is absolutely necessary tor the following reaadhs: . I' . � It prevents the drifting of ''Hght soils J : stimulates the growth of soil bacteria; prevents surface^washing after heavy rains; broadens the feeding area of the rootsj. admits sunlight and air; increases ,.t&S~waterrholding capacity, and by .means of this enables* the crop to withstand longer periods of drouth.

A hard.pan should not be per mitted to exist, as it checks the rise of water from the ground below, re tards the growtih of the roots, and decreases the moisture-holding capacity. When to Plow Fair plowing has three distinct ad vantages over spring plowing. It gives the land a chance to settle, thus forming a compact seed-bed; It allows the frosts ot winter to have their weathering .effect, and it enables the land to absorb the winter's rains and snow, thus retaining moisture. Spring plowing iihas its advantages, however. The ground Is usually in better shape in the spring,, and In the rush of'harvest the farmer seldom has time to do muth fall plowing. Harrowing There are several kinds of harrows, and all have their place, but the two in most common use, and which seem to be sufficient are the disc and spike-tooth. Both are Indispensable. , The disc should be used immediately after harvest on stubble or on surface sod before plowing. This tends to create an air space between the layers when turned over, thus insuring, a nice niellow seed-bed. In summer fallow land the disc is of value in killing weeds when they are young. Aft:er the weeds are older it only stimulates their growth. The spike-tooth harrow can be used at most any stage of the game, aiid until the crop ia four inches high. Harrowing is a splendid operation and may be done whether the grain Is too thick or too thin. If too thlek, run the teeth straight; ifloo thin tilt them back., It would not be amiss to say: "Harrow the crop from two to six times during the growing season, and after every rain." Packing Sub-surface packing is undoubtedly the best operation just previous to seeding. The principle of sub-packing is seen in the planting of nearly every other ftrm plait, and why should It not* be practiced In connec-, tlon.with the growing of grains? The �florist presses his seed Into the,;80il, but leaves a little loose earth on top. The gardener firms the soil around his vegetables, and, covers them.with loose dirt. The sub-soil packer was devised to this end, and should be used. ' Seeding If the land has been'summer fallowed, there is usually a: layer of loose earth on top in the spring. The seed should be placed below , ^ this mulch, in. the moist earth below, T rv plants easily strike upward tbrouah tihe loose earth, and the roots enter at once into the moist soil beneath. The same holds true as regards seeding fall plowed land. Spring plowing should not' be sown so deep, as the earth'is usually more moist and less settled. Most successful dry-farmers advocate tlie use:of the. press drill, as it Arms the soil, around the seed, thufl giving quicker' germination. Practically the -saiwe 'result :is dbtalned, how'ever, by ,the use of the roller or packer: affer seeding,  Lastly, thin seeding, and good seed.

Through its lohg period of recognition altaUa has established Its Ukes and dislikes b.nd may be dredlted with these maxims: 1. Alfalfa should be inoculated. 2. Alfalfa cannot stand Wet feet. 3. Alfalfa needs a well-drained soil 4. Alfalfa is a poor weed-fighter the first season. 5. Alfalfa does not thrive when not cut. 6. Alfalfa should be cut when one-tenth In bloom. 7. Alfalfa should not be cut too late in the season. 8. Alfalfa roots go deep. 9. Alfalfa Is the prince of drought resisters. 10. Alfalfa needs a deep, wall-packed Bieed-bed. 11. Alfalfa does best on manured soli. 12. Alfalfa is best seeded without a nurse crop. 13. Alfalfa should be seeded wriie and invigorator of the feniale organism.
