Observations en Southern Agriculture, j
Eds. Country Gentlemen: It was
may lurtune to make two trips to Xew
Orleans last winter and spend twentytwo
days south of Mason and Dixoirs j
line. The views of the southern coun
trv, and its agriculture and civilization
were to me more interesting than anv- !
thing I saw at the Exposition, although \
there was a great deal there to interest j
and instruct. In
regions like Western Kentucky j
and Tennessee and Northern Missis-!
sippi, the absence of grass seems like ;
an insult to nature. In Tennessee, I
residents told me that clover would |
grow three feet high, and timothy
would cut two tons to the a and I
at f lolly Springs, in XortheVn Missis-;
sippi, I saw a splendid sod in some I
imnroved eronnds around a hotel. 1
This was apparently Kentucky blue j
A gentleman with whom I talked at
New Orleans?a magistrate living near I
Jackson, Temt.?told me that hay was j
worth $15 per ton in his county, and j
that there was not enough grown for i
home consumption, He said that i
north of Jackson about thirty miles j
there were fifty acres of land which |
was seeuea to oiue grass, as an ex per- j
irnent, about twenty years airo. The j
man sowing the seed died *o:ne time ;
since, and the laud lies open to coin- j
mons. He said that a beautiful' sod j
covered the ground, and the cattle and |
horses would come for miles to feed on j
that pasture. Along the Jackson route
there are thousands of acres washed
into innumerable gullies from a foot
wide and a fool-deep to six feet deep,
and ten wide. * So destitute is the soil
of humus that the cotton rows are
made around the hollows and clevax:

lines on a contour map. In some cases
a long ridge a foot or more high will
run diagonally across a field, cutting
all the rows, and leading the water off
and discharging it on an adjoining
field. The same is to be seen on the
Ohio and Mobile Railway. For more
than a hundred years these'lands have
been cultivated in cotton and corn and
oats, arid when the\ would bera* a crop
no longer turned out to grow up to
broom sage, a coarse annual grass
(upland rush in appearance), gro wing
about two feet high and turning a
golden yellow in winter.
To a" resident or the Western Re- j
serve nothing- seemed^ simpler than to
sow the land, when unfit for cotton, to
white clover and blue gras*, or some
other grass adapted to the climate,
leaving it with a sod upon ir, not only
to prevent washing, but putting it ir. a
shape to be used agaiu three or four
years. When you talk about it.to a
cotton planter, you soon learn that he
has a perfect horror of grass, and when
vou see the little plows drawn by one
half starred, under-sized mule, you do
not wonder!. With these little plows,
the last vear's cotton 'fows are split,
the neVt^trop is planted midway betweenr?nd
there being no sod to subdue,
the labor of cultivation is reduced
to a minimum, as is also the crop in
The growing of cotton is pushed up
to its northernmost limit, and occasionally
the crop is overtaken in Ten- i
nessee and Northern Mississippi with j
ail untimely irost tnar, wun oue xeii
blow, destroys the planters hope, and
puts his profits ou the other side of the
ledger, Such was the case last fall in
some localities in Tennessee, and I sawmany
fields that had never been picked.
It seems to me that the country for a
hundred miles on either side of the
K/vntfiprn ljno ?c !?Hirnr?ih1v
adapted to stock raising. Lying mid
way between New Orleans and Cincinnati,
and 1,200 miles nearer the seaboard
than Kansas and Colorado, with
vasts tracts of only partially occupied
Jand, it seems to me that nothing conld
improve the location as a great beef
and mntton-prodnciag country. With j
. less than thirty days of what may be
called winter, and a climatc that will
permit the>growing of corn and other
forage crbps, I wonder that the farmers,
many of whom own -more land
than they can cultivate, do not- add j
stock-raising to their farming-. Horned i
stock, with now and then , a horse, all I
shift for a living, and a very little care j
and extra feed would add flosh and fat. j
I do not know how cattle would stand j
the change from Tennessee, but it
seems to me that the great demand for
calves, young stock and dairy cows,
that each year is growing more pressing'in
Ohio, might be profitably met in
tiiis region. Thousands of calves are
shipped by my home, from Southern
New "York to the plain lands of Ohio,
and many a car-load of dairy cows, I
am told, co'mc from beyond Chicago.

The report is as below:
Col. JEtichard M. Hoe?Dear Sir: In
compliance with your wish, I have
written oht a history of the experiments
which, under your directions,
I hare made with ensilage fodder.
In the fall of 1S79-- yon built your
first silo under the barn floor..dimensions,
about. 20 feet deep, 20 feet long
and MX feet wide. The walls were
composed ofstone and Portland cement
22 incbesx&ick, faced with a-mortar,
? Portland cement and ? sand. The
bottom, after tkorouo-h drainaye. was
This silo not being completed .11
time to ensilage the corn planted for
that purpose, we decided in putting of
aftergrass into it, that we had at thai
season. Commencing at it on a Friday,
atid not finishing on Saturday,
leaving ^it exposed and unweighted
over Sunday', Monday morning the
grass was four foet higher than when
we left on Saturday, fermentation having
effected it so much, We came to
the conclusion it would be imprudent
to put fresh grass oti top of -that fermented
mass. We gave it no more attention
until winter, when on cleaning
out the silo we found a black decomposed
mass, 6 to S 'inches deep, all
over the surface. What remained
under seemed perfectly sound and
juicy, and would now be considered a
"fair*sample of ensilage. Now, what
surprised me most was, why it did not
all become a decomposed mass, when
there was no.pressure? My impression
then and now is, that the mass on
top formed a seal and compression. T
also think that the sound portion did
not heat much.
We took it out during the winter,
and covered it over in the manure heap
so that the cattle would not get to it.
We failed in that point; attracted by
the smell I suppose, they dug into the
manure heap with their horns till they

relish. I allowed this, and watched j
the eflect, found it no way injurious,
but was surprised at getting an increase
of rnili: and a higher color to i
In 1880 we filled the same silo with J
the productiou of acres, planted j
with southern corn. Some I planted |
in rows three feet apart, and some two
feet. The planting was done by the
Albany Corn Planter, adjusting it so
as so drop 15 grains per foot. The
close planting proved the best fodder,
beino- a ninr-li finer stalk, with more
leaves. Yet the yield did not amount j
to more than v.iiat was planted three
icct apart, winic ttic corn was grow-;
ing1, wo tasted of the stalk at different;
times, foui.d the sap to differ in taste, '
even in the ssme stalk very much; I
one part was sweet while the other ;
part was insipidi Each time we ex- i
amined it, we found the sweet sap advancing
toward the top, and when it
reached that .point it commenced to
show blossom* When the stalk was
in bloom ten days, we had it cut-in
three-quarter lengths by the New
York Plow Co.?s Cyjclo-Ensilage Cutter,
con'veyed.to the silo by an eleva
tor, having two men in the silo treacling
it down. -The sheafing around and
above the silo, on'the Mills plop, is
nine feet high, which allows ior packing.
It would requite more it hot
well packed wjute being filled. When
full, which-took four days, we nut on
a layer sale hay about an inch thick, i
when "pressed; over that *we placed j
2-inch plank, then we used 25 ton's of |
"kentledge iron,'* for a compression,
ou- the 200 square feet of silo surface.
This we had done the first waek iu
September. We opened it on the 1st
of November, and found the salt hay
an injury to it, as it seemed to inouTd-the
ci'siiaga, the dry hay absorbing
the juice out of the corn and causing it
to decav, damaging two inches of en
silage. Except this, our loss was not
over one per cent. The first two days
I i'ed ir, the cattle did not eat it greedily,
but before the week expired, they
would leave good upland hay, to eat
ensilage- During the winter J had it
fed to cows, calves, hogs and poultry;
all seemed to like it. One - of our
Guernsey calves was so delicately constituted
that the herdsman had to give
it nourishment out" of a bottle. We
thought it would surely die. Under
those circumstances, we tried the en
silage by putting a nttie in me can s
mouth To our astonishment, she
commenced to cat it, and grew strong
and healthy on it. That winter there
was an -increase of milk, and the butter
was much yellower than on previous
ones. In the spring the cattle
were all healthv and in good condition.
In the summer of 1881, we built
another silo of the same capacity?
about four thousand cubic feet of compressed
ensilage. Those walls were
made of bricks and Portland cement,
12 inches thick,-haAing the stone foundation
of the barn on three sides, and
the stone "wall of the other silo to sup port
the fourth brick wall. Those
walls were left unlaced witti ttie cement,
but we found it injurious, as
the bricks absorbed some moisture and
prevented it from packing. That year
we plaitted seven acres of southern
corn, in rows feet apart, and filled'
both silos.- This time, instead of using
salt hay as before, we spread six sacks
of common salt, which proved very
satisfactory, having no loss whatever
?the salt even preserving a^Jbrighter
green. Our experience in feeding that
winter was just as satisfactory as that
oflSS2, which confirmed mv belief in
its .nutriment as a fodder> " ! '
In 1SS3, we experimented.with sorghum,
planting two acres, and found
its yield one-third less thau that of
corn. "We had it keptseparatte' in the
silo. When we opened it-and first
saw it, we thought it was impiW'omenl
oii the corn, 011 account of i&" greenness;
tut there was more , woody fibre,
a vinegar taste and a sivouger smell,
and the cattle did not cat itso greedily.
The silos were coveredan&weighted
as formerly, except putting some dry
earth on top of the plants,-which we
found beneficial. Our. method of taking
it out of the silo during those
years, was by cutting -it in four-foot j
benches with a hay-kmTe, allowing the
pressure to remain, on the o'ther part.
This system of taking- out-weafrawdoned,
as we found outthitfthe afraffected
; the face of it, especially - in; wnnn
weather. From November, 1SS3, until
July, 1884, all oar aiumafewere/stablcd
and fed on ensilage ~an<f grbniKl feed,
allowing four.quarts of ground* feed
(composed of eqaal p&rts of corn meal,
wheat bran, middlings and Oats) and
59 pounds of ensilage for each fullgrown
animal for 24 hours.
Having now fed it four cou#scutive
years, we have yet to find out any bad
effect from using it, but everything in
its favor as a profitable food, having
led 20 animals for six months on the
produce of o* acres. When we consider
the advantage of storing so much
food in so small a space, with the fact
that butter production is increased and
is of a brighter color, its utility seems
established. We weighed a cubic foot
of ensilage taken from three different
depths of the silo, top, centre and bottom.
The top loot weighed57 pounds;
centre, 5a pounds, and bottom, 53,
pounds?showing conclusively that, if
the silo is water-tierht. and enough
pressure on it, the liquid, will come to
the top, if any liquid is there.. During
the nast season, we have divided the
.silo mro fonr parts, uncovering all of
one section to feed from. This obviates
the difficulty of having the sur
face too long exposed, as we take'
from it every second day, and it is in
no way injured by exposure. It also
saves labor, being much easier tuken

Beware of Mercury and Potasli.
Mercury is more destructive to
human health and life than war, pestilence
and famine combined. So said a
distinguished writer many years ago,
and it is as true to-day as then. The
poor victim of Blood Disease is drug*
ged with Mercury to cure the malady,
and then dosed with iodides to cure
him of the Mercurial PoisouiHg; but
instead of any relief, the first breaks
down his general health and makes
him a cripple, and the other ruins his
digestive organs. Mercury ana roiasn
are dangerous even when administered
by directions aud under the eye of
a good physician, and whe'n put up in
nostrums, often by incompetent person?,
are apt to produce evil consequences.
Be careful of these poison-,
ous mixtures or you may regret it.

A FATAL FIKE.
Fifteen Lives Known to Be Lost?A Hero
Saves a Life at the Sacjifice of His Own.
On Thursday afternoon a dreadful
fire occurred at Cincinnati. A dense
cloud of smoke was seen coining from
the windows of Nos. 10 and 21 West
Sixth Streets. The alarm brought the
fireman promptly to the scene, "in less
than fifteen minutes the fire was so much
under control that Chief Engineer
Wishr waa ,ihln to rfiflftli thfi fifth nr
top floors. The chief said, in speaking
of it: "The house is not burned out, in
fact the fire was chiefly in the fifth
story. In the smoke I counted ten
girls lying on benches, tables, and
other things, some on the floor. Their
clothing was not burned, but the skin
on the backs of their hands was scorched.
It was a terrible sight, the worst
lever saw in my experience." It has
been ascertained that the fire started
from a can of benzine on the second
floor, near the elevator shaft. As soon
as the fire started, John Sullivan, a
young man, cousin of the proprietor,.

give warning1 to the girls. Instantly
almost, he found he was too late to
get them down and that his own retreat
was-cut off. Four of the girls
had already leaped from the window
to their death. J. R. Kinlev's son and
his foreman had gone to the roof of
their building adjoining this on the
west, and, knowing the girls were imprisoned
on the floor below, they procured
a rope and lowered it to the
window where Sullivan instantly fasnnA

window, and Kingsley and Shroder
lowered her safely. The rope was
brought up and Sullivan again pluckily
fastened it to another ^Irl and sent
her down safely. The rope came a
third time, and as the other girls by
this time were all suffocated they were
afraid to veiiture. Sullivan fastened
the rope-to his body and was being
lowered down, and when he was half
way down the flames shot out of a
window, and he fell head foremost to
the sidewalk in the presence of the
horrified neonle who had' witnessed
his heroism. When the girls were
jumping from the window a large man
heroically tried to catch them and so
break the force of the fall. He nearly
lost his own life in the attempt.
Wagons were called into use to carry
away the.wounded and killed. As
well as can be ascertained there were
about fifty occupants of the building,
of whom were twenty or twenty-five
girls in the fifth story. The boys were
on the second and third floors, and this
accounts for their escape. All agree ;
that " the spread of the flames was
almost iustantaneous. There was an
avenue of escape which the panicstricken
girls did not think of. It (
was an opening in the roof which they
could have reached from . a bench
standing beside the wall, and once on (
the roof they conld have reached the
other buildings with perfect ease. The j
lack of ready access to this place-lost ;
all these lives. The almost insignifi-,;
cant wooden stairway around the ele- ;
vator shaft is not burned so as to be
useless or even unsafe, yet the flames
seem to have pervaded all the floors
and to have ruined all paper and other
light combustible matter. Sullivan's
toss is $6,000 to $10,000, with ample
insurance. The loss to the building
light. Fifteen persons are dead?all
girls except young Sullivan. Of these (

is before me, and in an article (in the
main well considered) on the Solid
South, it Implies that the negroes are
capable of such advancement as will
enable them to jnstity in the future
the hope ot the North*: that the whites
and negroes of the South will occupy
at last the same plane ot civilization.
Speaking ot the days of reconstruction
"Here was a race of men who,
through no fault of their own, had
been sunk by slavery and ignorance to
a condition but little above that of the
brutes, like which they had been
bought and sold at auction. They
and their ancestors before them for
generation had been mere chattels, i
whom it was a grave crime to teach t
even to read. They were absolutely t
denied the first qualification for par- (
ticipatiou in the government of a j
country which had always denied them
the right even to govern their own ]
Now this, Mr. Editor, while the ,
strongest argument to show the folly ,
of the project of reconstruction, yet ]
seems to imply that this despised race
may one day, when they do learn to ,
<1 nd rrrmfA KftrtAmA n/*i nolo rvT

their former masters.
That they had been held for generations
as slaves in this country sold as
chattels, denied the government of
their own persons, prevented by the
laws from learning to read and write,
was by no means the reason why they
were unfit for the task imposed on
them by the raconstruction acts, of
keeping in motion the complicated
machinery of a free Republican government
of a mighty peopleInstead
of having been "sunk by
slavei-v and isrnorance to a condition '
but little above that of the brutes," <
they, in fact, had been elevated under *
its benign influences to a degree of 1
civilization which no considerable 1
number of their race had ever else- 1
where attained. *
They had been captured in their
native deserts, "where, wild in woods, t
the naked savage ran,'' bv persons in- '
stigated by the gold of our Northern *

the ships of these enterprising Northern rfriends,
to be sold for a great profit to
the provincials of the South. ?
Under the miserable influence of
this system the South had been so t
degraded that it could produce 110 ]
higher types of civilization than Wash- j
insrton, Jefferson, Madison, Monroe, t
Taney, Wythe, Pendleton, Stonewall 1
Jacksen and Robt. E. Lee. i
And the naked savages, who in the
whole history of the word, had never r
emerged from their native lands ex- 1

time continued as slaves in every land ^
to which they had been brought, and ]
who had relapsed into heathenism and a
barbarism whenever the, to them, civilizing
influence of slavery, in the
form in which it prevaied in the South c
elevated to a dignity of character to ?
which they had" never been before L
known to attain.
The South is solid, and will remain a
solid, not only tor the reasons given m a
the Century, but bccause, having a
wide experience of negro character,
and a thorough knowledge of the
capacities of the negro race, it knows |
that barbarism will triumph, and the
land of Washington and Lee will be- ?
come a waste, if we permit ourselves ?
to be deluded for one moment into the ^
idea of educating the negro into an
equality with the white man. Freedman's
Bureaux and Blair bills must 11
alike be jealously watched, for the ?
Blair bill is only the entering wedge i'
for the Freedman's Bureau. The new 0
South of our Northern friends mast 1
be frowned upon, until those who, 1
under the specious pretext of material v
wealth, advocate the substitution of d
Northern ideas for our true Southern
principles, (which have produced a ii
race of brave men and refined and r
virtuous women, equal to any iu the I
world,) are rendered as odious as the C
carpet-baggers and scalawags, whose r
legitimate offspring they are. s
'Let us frown on those of our public o
men who would teach our people that f
it is the highest aim of statesmanship fi
to secure an appropriation; who
