^Johnson Grass in Hissonri.
* There seems to be quite an interest
among the subscribers to your excellent
paper in the cultivation of the
new grasses, and more espe cially tne
Johnson grass. I think that grass is

In the spring of 1883, 1 produced
some seed from the Plant Seed Co.,
and planted them just like I would
have done oats on a small plot of
ground. I got a poor stand on about
a third of the patch, and the other twothirds
being: a failure. The part that
came up was thin at first, but it seemed

the ground. Some of the stalks attained
to a height of six feet and
matured some seed. When winter set
in I paid no more attention to it. The
following spring I examined it and
thought it a failure?could take hold
ot the stalks and pull it up by the
. uots, as I then thought, but "upon
vloser examination I found that it
oroke off just below (he freeze. By
digging down I found all that was
below that point was all ri?rht and
some of it went as mnch as two feet
oeiow, so I waited for the results that
warm weather would produce. On
the firt day of May, 1884, I noticed it
running through the grouiui from the
cane like roots which, unnoticed by
me, had spread in every direction,
some rnnnlno' ont two feet from the
original stalk. By these roots spreading
in this way it become thick enough
on the ground. After the weather got
warm, "and it got well to growing, I
took the measurements of growth for
thirty days, the stalks that I measured
made an average of two inches
every twenty-four hours' time. On
tne nrst aay 01 oeptemDer, ijxh, i
mowed it close to the ground, the
seed then being ripe and some of the
stalks eight feet high. I then thought
it done for this year but happening to
pass by it in a "few days, to my utter
astonishment, it was a foot or* more
high, and looking more like yonng
corn than grass. I had now become
more than ever interested in it. I
watched its growth from day to day
until the 10th of October, 1884, when 1
cuc some of it to take to the fair at Mt.
Vernon which commenced on the 11th
orUctober. it was then nve teet high
and headed out but made uo seed.
The frost coining in a few days killed
it down to the ground. I made seme
hay oat of some of the last crop. My
stock of all kinds would eat it before
they would good hay made from clover
and timothy. If I had a meadow of it
Kke the patch I have, I could get a
good crop of hay which would all be
grown from the root after the first day
of September, after the army worm
had taken the other meadows, and the
chinch bag eaten all the corn. It
would make plenty of hay to carry the
farmer through the winter and "be a
boon to many drouth districts after the
other crops have failed.?J. K. Cnmmings

Ed. So. Live-Stock Journal:
For the past year or two there has
beeu a great deal written about the
chuias as a crop for hogs. Some of
the articles that 1 have read on the
subject regarding the enormous \ ield,
I thought very extravagant, some
writers claiming that they would, on
land satiable tor tlieir grow in, yield
from 150 to 800 bushels per acrej and
that they were worth, bushel for
bushel, as much for hog-feed as corn,
and that the hogs would harvest the
crop themselves. I have had but one
year's experience with this crop and
that on a small scale.
Last spring I plauted about three
quarts of seed on a poor piece of sandy

than oue-fourth came up. I kept the
land well cultivated, and as fast as the
plants that <3M come up, would tiller
out, I would draw from them and set
out the missing places until there was
not a missing hill in t!>c whole half
acre. About the 4th of July i had
finished setting1 out the patch," and by
the middle of August many of the
bunches had'met across the middle of
the rows. I gathered a small plat in
the best of the patch and made a calculation
to see what they would make

rate cf 128 bushels per acre. This
was on land that could not, with the
most favorable seasons and good cnltivation,
make more than ten bushels
of corn per acre. I am satisfied that,
on good sandy land and an early stand
three hundred bushels per acre would
not be extravagant figures. There is
r.3 doubt in my mind but that the
chufa is one of the best, if not the
very best crop we can raise for hogs
and ocmltrr. Have them nlanted con

feed on them. They are not more
tronble to cultivate "than corn. The
question will very naturally be asked
if they are so productive, why is it
that the seed are so high? There are
two reasons; 1st, but few persons have
paid any attention to the cultivation
of the "erop; 2d, they are the most
tedious crop to gather of which I have
any knowledge, and but few ever
gather more than they need for their
: own seed. The seed must remain high
until some machinery* is discovered
for harvesting and preparing them
for market. With oats, peas, sweet
potatoes and chufas, the meat problem
is easily solved in the South.

Tb? Sorghnm Crop.
Several articles from time to time
have been published in this paper
apou tbe ?nbjeoJ of sorghum for cattle
taken from western papers. It seems
that in Kans&o this is decidedly the
cheapest and best and most reliable

plan generally adopted is to sow one
bushel of seed per acre, broadcast, and

it seems the cnring process is
We do not believe that sorghum in

we are satisfied that for ensilasre dui

THE FEDERAL OFFICES.
What Senator Bn'ler Says of the Action <>*
the Delegation. .
[Special to the News and Courier.]
Washington, March 25.?I am informed
that some gentlemen whose
names do not appear on the slate made
np at the conference of the South Carolina
delegation have entered the contest
as applicants for certain Federal
offices in the State. Some persons
imagine that the heads of the various
departments have placed the patronage
of certain States in the hands of
Congressional delegations, and that
whoever they recommend must certainly
be appointed. Senator Butler
says there are persons in his State
who appear to be laboring under that
! impression. He says he is very sorry
that such an idea was ever entertained
for one moment. All the Federal
offices, he says, are open to competition,
and those persons who succeed
in making the best impression upon
the appointing power will undoubtedly
secure the appointments. He
does not wish to discourage anv annli
i cant who thinks he can make the tight
! for himself. Indeed, it seems that
hose who have the least political influence
behind them are meeting with
the most success at the hands of the
Senator Butler called at the postoffice
department yesterday and placed
on file the application of Mr. Benjamin
F. Huger for postmaster at
Charleston. Mr. Huger is endorsed
by the best citizens of Charleston, and
| he will probably be selected as the
; successor of Postmaster Taft.
More About the Offices.
Washington, March 26.?TheCleve|
land Administration was three weeks
j old yesterday. During that period
i many important changes have been
made in the personnel [of Government
officials. Nearly all of the new appointments
have been of a national
character and are calculated to reflect
credit upon the appointing power.
There are some persons who cannot
conceal their disappointment because
all the prominent national offices have
not been bestowed upon active politicians.
They certainly do not advance

Executive chair under circumstances
most trying, and it is of vital importance
that ha should proceed cautiously
and weigh well his public actions.
A Government which liao been
under Republican control for nearly a
quarter of a century, cannot be reformed
in three weeks, three months.
or even three years. It is indeed fortunate
for the Democratic party that
Mr. Cleveland has the nerve to withstand
the importunities of some of the
men who seek to advise him. He has
promised that the "rascals shall be
"turned out," and that "the books
of the Government shall be looked
into." He means to keep his word.
Whenever it can be shown that a ras
cal is now holding an office of public
trust he stands ready to remove him
and appoint a competent and efficient
Democrat in his place. Look at the
recent changes which have taken place
in the treasury, interior and postoffice
departments. Evejy one of the men
removed were known to be active politicians,
who had expended the Government's
time and their own money
to elect a Republican President.
Their successors, in almost every instance,
are practical business men,
who are expected to assist in running
the affairs of the Government according
to business principles.
The campaign was fought and won
on the ground that political influence
should not outweigh business qualifications
in selecting Federal officials
Now it strikes me that the Democratic

New Orleans, March 21.?In celebrating

should be remembered that no State j
in the Fouth has a history so inter-1
woven with the srreat industry as that i
of South Carolina. From Charleston j
one hundred years a<jo was exported!
the first bale of Southern snow, and
from that date to this cotton has been
a chief element in the wealth of the
State which has done more than any
other to foster the growth of its power.

RICK. IS TEiE GOOD OLD STYLE.
After the agricultural temple has
been admired the visitor to the South
Carolina exhibit is attracted to the
pretty display of rice. Supported by
pillars, which are glass tubes filled
with rice, is a small roof thatched with
sheaf rice, which justly claims to be
the best in the world. Grouped around
this centre piece are barrels, whose
glass tops reveal the rice and its various
products, and grades of clean rice,
chafl, rough rice and the flour and
bran which this grain yields. As a
commercial display this is perfect, but j
to do full justice to the South Carolina j
rice the Charleston merchants should [
have sent along one of the old-time
"manmas," as the colored women used
to be called Charleston, provided with
a small cooking stove, who might have

intended to be entei). Cooked by these ;

The most prominent and original
feature of the South Carolina exhibit
is an immense pyramid of phosphate
rock, thirty feet in height, made of;
thirty tons of the laud and river rock.!
Set into the four sides of the pyramid '
arc large shield-shaped plates which
bear the following inscriptions:
"Animal shipment of phosphate
rock, 400,000 tons.
"Fertilizers manufactured, $3,000.000.
"Annual prodnct of mines, $2,500,- j
"Annual shipment of fertilizers, ]
Jars are ranged around the face of
the pyramid containing ground rock
and ingredients used in manufacturing
it into fertilizers. There are also bags
of prepared fertilizers.
As every commodity is estimated
upon a gold basis, it is* interesting to
compare the yield of the phosphate of
South Carolina mines with that of the

The gold mines of Alabama, Georgia,!
Maryland, North and South Carolina,

The production of gold in the Southern
States last year beins: about the
annual production of these States
since the establishment of mints
in tne Lnitea btates, ana the production
of phosphates in Sonth [
Carolina for th<?. last year being
$2,500,000, giving that State, as a
mining district, including her gold,
ten times the advantage of tlie other
Southern States. Should the rate of
production of phosphates continue as
it has in the fourteen years of its dis
covery, in cue same lengin 01 tune
which has elapsed since the United
Slates mints have recorded the production
of gold, the value would
reach the enormous snrn of $200,000,000;
and there is reason to think that
it will far exceed this amount, as the
demand increases every year and the
supply is believed to be inexhaustible.
MINERAL DEPOSITS. V
South Carolina is said to have very
lew mineral deposits 01 much value,,
but the samples shown here seem to
refute the opinion of geologists, and
the 'researches which are constantly
making among the once almost unknown
mountains of the "Up-conutry"
as the northern part of the State is
called, may bring to light wealth tliat
is not now known. We see here that
the State possesses line qualities of
gold, silver, copper, lead and iron ores
and sparkling among them the stars of
the mine?rubies, emeralds, topaz,
amethysts, garnets and other gems.
There are some very fine building
stones, soapstone and marble, with
granite, from the quarries around
Columbia which are now doing a
paying business. The most interest
nig of all tilings shown in this section
is the collection of fossils from the

NATURAL. HISTORY OK THE STATE.
The natural history of South Caro- j
lir.a is superbly illustrated here by a
collection of stuffed animals from the
Charleston Musuein. The beautiful
birds of this State make a bright glint
of color among the dark animals and
ghastly skeletons, they are placed
beside. Over two hundred specimens
of the fish of the Slate are shown in
this collection, but they belong to the
State fish commission which has in the
last few years done a great deal to increase
the supply of good fish in South
Carolina. Those exhibited here are
preserved in plaster and painted and
varnished until they present a very
life-like appearance. Lord Corn wall is
said, a great many years ago, that
Carolina was worth conquering, if
oul\* for the bream in her streams, and
a great many will agree with the old
gentleman when they examine the
specimens exhibited here.
The people of South Carolina realize
annually S33,000,000 from the products
of the different manufactures
existing- in the State, and a space proportionate
to their importance lias
hppn amnrdfid t.n fhf> mflrniffl<rfiir#?ra in
the State exhibit wherein to display
their work. Ten of the cotton mills of
the State, the Columbia hosiery mill
and a wagon factory in Greenville,
have availed themselves of this fine
opportunity to advertise their business
and reflect credit upon their State
at the same time. Eleven companies
engaged in mining phosphates and the
manufacture of commercial fertilizers
unite in making one of the most interesting
and instructive of the many
wonderful and important things to be
seen at this Industrial Exposition.
They show, by samples of their productions
and photographs of their
mines and works, the whole process of
mining and manufacturing the South
Carolina phosphates which have done
so much for the State. Not only has
the royalty paid by them to the SJtate
lessened taxation, but the sale of fertilizers
has enrichened the owners, and
at the same time -the application of
them to the wornout lands of the State
has enabled the fanners to increase the
amount of produce per acre, until a
comparison of the crop raised in 18S4
with that of 1860, the most prosperous
year of ante-bcllnm times, is simplyastonishing.
The annual product of the lumber
and naval stores business the value
of the products of the-cotton mills in
South Carolina, and exceeds in value
over 200,000 bales of cotton at $40 per
bale. Bale branches of this forestry
trade are well represented in the exhibit
of the State. The lumber exhibit
is said by lumber men who have examined
it to be the best selection made
by any State. The 140 varieties of
wood "shown have a portion of the
surface of each piece polished to the
extent 01 the wood polishers art. The
work was done in thejworkshop of the
South Carolina Raalroad in Charleston,
whose artisans are accustomed to
using the beautiful native woods in
the interior decorations of their cars.

In this opinion we are sustained by

Rev. Jesse H. Campbell, the Nestor of

says: "It is my deliberate judgment
that Swift's Specific is the grandest

them almost miraculous. There is no
medicine comparable to it." Dr.

But few preparations can bring for

desires only to endorse these statements.
We have witnessed the beneficial
effects of this medicine, not only
in our own households, but in several
other cases where seemingly all other
remedies had failed. It is purely a
vegetable compound, scientifically
prepared, and perfectly harmless in its
composition. It renews the-blood and
