PLEASANT GROVE NEWS" " " Custom Plowind By G. WEILESLEY BRABBIT NEW lXDL'STRY, that the u-cst and northwest When the Dakotas, A. were opened to agriculture the farms were sq large that horses could not supply the motive power necessary lor the plowing of the great land tracts. and they -dragged, the thus power plowing had custom "plowing,, an occupation now numbering manv hundreds of men with an invested do not own the farms upon-which especially made outfits for so much An up-to-date outfit or rig costs horsepower traction engine and a series of plows, usually in groups -of 10, l or 14, called "bottoms." They according to their nuniler, are attac and arranged in pairs diagonally along the back, with each pair slightly in advance of the other. Levers are, attached to all, so that they may.be. raised or lowered at discretion. the plows are elevated. With, this and breaks up the soil at from $.1 to $5 per acrer according to the character char-acter of the land. If it 1k new, more is charged ; if old, less. The farmer in both cases furnishes the coal. lu appearance the traction engine resembles the ordinary one seen during the threshing -season in Illinois, only it is larger, with exaggerated back wheels. They travel at the rate of two miles pcf hour over even ground and can turn under t to 30 acres daily. From five to seven inches is the depth of the furrow. The cost of running one of thee plowing outfits prr "day is as follows: fol-lows: Man to steer, $1.50; water hauler, $1; board, $.1; feed for one horse, 50 cents; shaqicning plows, $?.50; oil, $1. Almnt $C worth of coal is burned. " . The good custom plower is bringing up the standards of his craft Having ffill Knowledge that old world plowing methods are superior to those on this side of the water and realizing that the American farmer often sacrifices quality for quantity, he has set aUiut to reduce plowing to European standards and has for the most part produced satisfactory results. With his steam engine lie can secure quantity; with practical knowledge lie obtains quality. There are breakers ahead of him, though, that will give him worry unless he bestirs himself at on it- to avoid the trouble; and that is price cutting. Owing" Id its extreme youth, to speak of; no power to maintain a result has len a lowering of wages until now ir soirte portions of the west no money is made at all by it. The farmer is glad and willing to pay .as high as $5 an acre for breaking his land "and why less than this should be asked is a mystery.

I think, as 1 said, that he has a sort of friendly feeling for the old clock aud sort of feels that he must look after It. and really It seems as If the clock reciprocated this feeling, and was saying to hlin when he bus shaken It out of Ita drowsiness and It starts banging: 'WBy. how do you do?.
