Farmer's Calendar.

THE hoe and the cultivator must be kept busy this month, or the weeds will get a strong start and come hard by and by. It does not pay to raise weeds on the farm. They require about as much food as other plants, and they draw hard upon the moisture and the fertility of the soil. If a man is to farm for profit, it doesn't do to give the land up to weeds. Do as much as you can

with the horse and cultivator. They are cheaper than hand labor. The rows of corn and

roots ought always to be straight, and far enough apart to admit of the free use of the horse-hoe

field of orchard grass, June grass or cultivator. If you have a and clover, it will be fit to cut by the middle of the month, if not by the tenth, and it is the best way to put in the scythe. It is a mistake to let grass stand too long. Cut and cure so as to keep all the qualities of the green grass, if you can. It is a great thing| to get an early start in haying. The garden must not be neglected now. A good garden saves the butcher's bill, and keeps down the doctor's bill, too. Might as well have a plenty of small fruits, like strawberries. The children like them as well as the birds, and they agree with them uncommonly well.

weather, after haying, to get out a large supply of it for future use. If you can cut a ditch at the same time, to drain off the birds with one stone. The muck surplus water, it will kill two will pay for digging, and the draining will make the land better. It may not pay to go to great expense to lay up a stock of muck, but here is a time when the work of the farm is not very

pressing, and drainage is always useful. I always like to put a little top-dressing over the mowing lots, soon after haying. It protects the roots from the drought, keeps up the fertility of the land, and increases the crop. It is as good for the grass as a mulching is for an orchard of young trees. The ground

mellows under the shade of a

heavy mulch, and grows richer. There is no better time than now to clear up the mowing lots and dig out the rocks. It pays, nowadays, to smooth the grass lands, and get them into condition to use the mowing machine. The more work we do with horse

power, the better. We can save time and strength, and at this season of the year, time is money, as every farmer knows.
