Cornett, Jefferson County, Indiana. Beets grow well on any good garden soilj and the richer the better. The land should be plowed deeply,' and If It be .subsoiled, so much the better. This puts the soil in good condition for the drill. Drill in the seed in rows as early in the season as possible.

For the wax, take three parts bees wax, two parts rosin and one part tal low. Put all in. a kettle and boll till all is melted. Then pour the wax Into a pail of cold water, where it will cur dle. Then rub' your hands with a little lard or oil, so as to keep the wax from sticking to your hands, and take it out of the water, and work It like dough or putty, so as to take the water .out.

We are unable to give the name of the writer of the following: Beets should have a deep, rich, sandy loam, with clay subsoil. The land shpuld be plowed in the fall and harrowed in the spring. For winter beets, we sow the first of June, about nine pounds of seed to the acre. We fertilize with barnyard manure. We plant' In rows and occasionally cultivate between the rows. The rows are two and feet apart, and .the plants are thinned to six Inches apart in the rows. We harvest in October, digging with a spade and then cutting off the tops. The greatest obstacle in raising the crop is harvesting them, it being a good deal of work to dig them with the spade. We utilize the crop here by feeding it to cattle. Beets should be thinned when young and kept free from weeds. Soak hours in lukethe seed for twenty-fou- r k warm water before planting. In- OSTLER SAMUEL A.
