What a Milionare Said About Half
a Century Ago.
The. News and Courier rpro

.2dicle from Mr. Geo. .
swritten fifty ea
which he now says e has no
reason to change:
In upper Georgia we have the
mountain ranges producing luxu
riant native grasses and wild pea
vines to feed the "cattle on a
thousand hills." I know that the
-erroneous opinion prevails with
many that our climate and soils
are not adapted to the cultivation
of such grasses as can be made
into good hay. This is quite a
mistake. I have seen the best
meadows in New England, but
nowhere have' I seen grass grow
more luxuriantly than in Georgia.
It is to be regretted that this im
portant branch of Southern agri
culture is so much neglected.
The cultivation of grass is a sub
ject of vast importance to our
people. We have thousands of
acres of land, too wet for grain
and cotton, that might be sown
down with grass and yield a
handsome profit to the farmer.
No grass has succeeded so well
- in Georgia as the Herd's grass.
It flourishes on wet soils and
reclaimed swamps, but will thrive
on most soils;. makes an excellent
spring and winter pasturage, and
can be mown twice in one year.
This valuable grass is more exten
sively cultivated in Habersham
County than any other section of
It was introduced into Nacoo
chee Valley by Major Williams,
*in 1835. The Major has tried
the celebrated Bermuda, Meai,
Guinea and other grasses, but
found none equal to the Herd's.
The farmers of that valley under
stand the value of good hay and
hiave more than a hundred acres
of fine meadow.
Herd's grass is easily propa
gated; is perennial and, when once
introdluced into good soil, will
flourish with a little care for
years. The land intended for
meadows should be thoroughly
.cleaned of swamps and roots,
then ploughedl and harrowed.
T~he grass seed should be sown
with oats, broadcast, afterward
harrowed and brushed in.
March is a good month for
sowing. The oats will protect
p The young grass from the hot sun;
cut the oats, grass and weeds as
close to the ground as possible.

In the evening the hay should be a

wards put into cocks five or six j
feet in height. If the weather is d
good the hay will be ready for
stacking or housing in two or
three das. It is a great saving
t ityunder shelter, hence the
necessity of large barns.
