stubble field, and adapting the composition to suit its soil, we
must also collect a sufficient quantity of seeds to suit the summer
grain in heavy and light soils, and thus we will gain by it one
year's observation and practice. We can also test the utility of

farmer depends upon the industry and attention given, in paying
strict regard to the instructions above, so as to put down all he
