What is this?
Optical character recognition (OCR) is an automated process that converts a digital image containing numbers and letters into computer-readable numbers and letters. The search engine used on this web site searches OCR-generated text for the word or phrase you are looking for. Please note that OCR is not 100 percent accurate. If the original image is blurry, has extraneous marks, or contains ornate font styles or very small text, the OCR process will produce nonsense characters, extraneous spaces, and other errors, such as those you may see on this page. In addition, the OCR process cannot interpret images and may ignore them or render them as strings of nonsense characters. Despite these drawbacks, OCR remains a powerful tool for making newspaper pages accessible by searching.

When domestic animals were Introduced lute Africa the plow fol lowed only in the eastern regions, all through the rest of Africa the hoe-cul ture held its own. . . . When the plow was iu vented many vegetables formerly cultivated prob ably becutne less profitable or attrac tive, and were given up. A revolution took place in agriculture. Probably the plow was at first dragged by wom en, It Is impossible to say Just when It was first Invented, It was used dur ing the Bronze period, for It Is repre sented In rock-carvings of that age.

The first step was to burn nnd deur a place where the undergrowth was not too heavy, and to break up the soil with pick or hue. Here the patch of grain was sowed. . . . The primitive plow was hardly more than a pointed stout branch or stub of a tree, whose longer fork was fastened to the yoke. It made a furrow tri angular tn cross-section, broad at tbe top and narrowing to an edge at the boltom. It did not “turn\ a strip, and between two furrows u long ridge was left unbroken. Even In Roman times cross-plowing was common or usual. Even tills rude culture needed the strength of ealtle to druw the plow. Tiie plow is associated in our mind with oxen, and the first man who made Ids cow, insteud of ids wife, draw tlie plow was a great benefactor. —John M.
