How a Rood Crop of Wheat' was made.
The Salisbury Watchman, some time
ago, reported a large yield of wheat made
. by Mr, S. A. Lowrance in Rowan county;
Mr. Lowrance gives the Watchman the
following account of how he managed his
wheat crop: l . ':
, " Mt. Uixa. Township, Sept. 21, 1881.
a. In regard to the soil, I have a variety
of soils; some red clay, some a dark clay
: very bad to shift from plow with a very
tight red clay subsoil, some sandy with a
light clay subsoil this is my worst wheat
land, although I have had as good wheat
on this as any I have.. Besides I have
some land that seems to be mixed with
- some sand, clay and loam. - I have in my
red and dark clay; land alluvial flats,
which are the best spots for wheat, as the
( land is here better. : , - ! -
In regard to the 8$ acre field which this
-year made 319 bushels of wheat, it is
mostly the dark clay, with some spots of
red clay. This field ten or twelve years
ago would not actually have made three
bushels of wheat per acre. It was literal
ly worn out. I have seen it in oats when
they did not get a foot high. Immediate
ly after the surrender I turned this field
- out for three or four years ,to get rid of
the sassafras sprouts with which it was
'almost covered. At the end of this time
1 gave it a slight coating of manure and
sowed it to wheat. It made nearly ten
bushels to the acre, as well as I remember.
I sowed it to peas after harvest and the
next year made about the same amount
of wheat, having turned-the peas before
sowing. .The next year I planted about
one-half the field in cotton and the re
mainder in peas. The cotton made about
five or six hundred pounds of seed cotton
per acre ; the peas made vines, but no
peas. I then sowed to wheat,, turning
under pea vines and manuring all I could.
' From this I reaped about 15 bushels per
1 acre. I sowed it to clover that Spring
and let it lie in clover , the next year,
mowing some of the best spots one time.
That Fall I turned the sod and sowed to
wheat, using 150 or 178 pounds Peruvian
guano per acre. This yielded me 25
' bushels to the acre. I then let it lie
" another year in clover, turned in the Fall
and sowed to wheat, using the same
amount of Peruvian guano, and made 28
- bushels to the acre. I let it lie in clover
then two years and pastured. In May
1880 1 hauled out 80 loads of manure
v (mostly cow pen) which went nearly over
the field. I then sowed it in peas, using
over one bag of guano on the part that
was not manured. About the 1st of
" September I turned or rather tried to
turn the peas under they were waist
deep. I let them lie four weeks and turned
again, following in same furrow with a
subsoil plow the Murfce and I think I
got it well broke ten inches deep. I used
two horses all the time in turning, and
for the last six or eight years have used a
No. 11 Dixie plow. I also used two
horses to the subsoil plow. I prefer to
turn the clover sod in August. After
subsoiling I harrowed once or twice ; I
- usually harrow once after breaking. I
then put on about 2,500 pounds salt and
3,000 or 4,000 pounds slacked lime on the
8 acres. This was done the 21st day of
October, 1880. The 22d of October I
sowed it in wheat, using 8 bushels seed
(Fultz) and 1,100 pounds "Lobos" Peru
vian guano and 2,000 pounds Star Brand,
Allison & Addison's guano, and this year
harvested 319 bushels, or a fraction over
Z1 bubhels per acre. And I would here
say I believe if I had not used the 2,000
pounds Star Brand it would have made as
much wheat. Some of the wheat tangled
. considerably while other spots were cut
- short by dry weather, the heads just get
ting oat of the shot-blade. I would also
say that I sowed the wheat with a drill
for the last three times and put in guano
. at the same time. I mixed the salt and
lime and put in with drill. I sowed only
: 10 bushels peas on the field, putting in
. The whole cost of the last crop of
wheat, including the three ploughings,
peas and all the work and guano was
about $25 per acre. I had also a 15-acre
field I will not go back to tell its history
which did not cost over $12.50 per acre
V to plough, sow and fertilize which paid
much better than the above. It made 30
bushels per acre; which leaves H bush
els wheat profit, putting wheat at $1 to
pay expenses ; while the other only gave
- 12 profit. But the 8f acre field is worth
$10 per acre more than it was before it
was sowed in peas in 1880.
I would also say that everything should
be done thoroughly, and that will not be
done unless you see it done, and then
some times it will be necessary for you to
do it yourself. I never have eowed wheat
; with a drill but that I followed it myself.
Good 6eed is also another item ; I have
mine well cleaned before sowing, and
never soaked but once in my life and
have never had any smut worth naming.
I believe if the seed is pure and sowed
with a drill with fertilizers, there will be
no smut. Last, but not least, when you
- have raised your wheat, see that it is
saved. If good wheat 20 to 30 bushels
per acre be cut with a good machine,
you will save at least three bushels per
acre. Trusting that I have satisfactorily
. . answered the questions asked,
. I am yours, very respectfully,
S. A. Lowrance.

A New Fibre.
- The Louisville Courier-Journal gives
the following description of a new mate
rial for use in bagging and rope manu
facture which has been exhibited in that
city : "This beautiful, strong, clean fibre
is produced from the plant known in this
State as beargrass, and further South as
the Spanish dagger. The family of yucca
contains about a dozen varieties, all stout,
- strong-leaved plants, and has been used
in Kentucky time out of mind for hang
ing meat while curing in the smoke
houses. This family of plants is known
as a beautiful and abundant bloomer:
long, tough, pointed fibrous leaves. This
plant is omnipresent everywhere in the
south, south of forty degrees north lati-
. tuae. This plant is another item in the
long list of the untold resources of the
. sown. Iu fibre is as strong as hemp or
" 2! a.D? almo8t as indestructible as iron,
except by the action of fire. Some of ita

A Renovating .System of Agriculture.
iSvery farmer should aim first to main
tain the fertility of his land rather than
to produce heavy crops. If the soil is
taken care of, as it should be, the crops
will not fail to come. With judicious
management, any field may be cultivated
from year to year, and instead of becom
ing impoverished, improve fertility in
every season. And this may be accom
plished, simply by husbanding the re
soaeces of the farm, except on certain
kinds of land, where the soil is almost
destitute of human or vegetable matter.
The roost important consideration for
termers, all over the country is, how they
?nay introduce most advantageously a
renovating system in the cultivation of
their fields. The fertility of the soil is,
in many respects, like the growth, or fat
tening of an animal. j If the animal is run
ning down it will require much feeding
and good care to check the falling off, and
to cause the system to lay up fat and
flesh. So with afield that has once been
productive. If the soil has become im-
foverished by bad management ; by a
ong succession of exhausting crops; by
removing every product of the field and
returning nothing in the form of manure;
by allowing noxious weeds to bear sway,
and by plowing and cultivating alter the
skinning system, it will require . about as
many years to restore thetieeired produc
tiveness of a field, as it takes to impover
ish its fertility. Every cultivatabie field
should receive a liberal dressing of ma
nure, or be enriched by a coat of clover
plowed nnder as often as once in every
four years. He who aims to return to his
fields a fair equivalent in fertilizing mate
rial, for every crop removed, has already
commenced a renovating system that will
render impoverished land more fertile,
and rich ground still more productive.
How to Tie a Horse.
Incredible as it seems, not half the tavern-keepers,
hostlers or teamsters know
how to tie a horse ; either making some
clumsy knot that is troublesome to undo,
or making a hitch that is insecure. The
proper way, after passing the tether round
the thing to be attached to, is to make a
half hitch, passing the end of the strap
through the loop. If the horse, nibbling,
pulls it, he merely ties the knot tighter.
And to unhitch, it is only necessary to
remove the end from the bow and it is in
stantaneously loosened. Not one-fourth
of the butchers or farmers know how to
tie the legs of a calf or a sheep for trans
portation. The majority of the people,
when they want to make the animal se
cure, wind the cord tightly around the
legs, causing a ' painful congestion. The
proper way is to make a half knot only on
each hind and fore leg alternately, fasten
ing with a bow at last, which is easily un
tied. I find usually a pocket handkerchief
the handiest thing, it being about the
right size. Tied in this way; they are ab
solutely secure and without .pain.
The excrement of domestic fowls is a
highly concentrated mass of nitrogenous
soluble animal and mineral matter. I
have used it more or less for many years,
and have never known it -to fail. My
usual method is a very simple one. I
haul, during the summer, a load of fine
muck, and spread a portion of it under
the roosts. Every few days, as occasion
requires, I worked it over so as to cover
the hen manure. From time to time I
throw more muck over the other, so that
by cold weather the load of muck be
comes pretty well saturated and pulver
ized. I have a cask of plaster near by
from which I occasionally spread a email
quantity and Bhovel or dig it over. When
readv to use in snrinr'. I nut with it mv
leached ashes, which were left from eoap-
making. I generally haul it all into the
field, make a stack and dig it over several
times with the hoe. Sometimes I mix
some fine soil with it.
I now have quite a pile of material
ready for use, and in Buch a condition
that I am not obliged to use a spoon, nor
shovel, nor shingle, but simply the hand.
I usually drop my corn and potatoes, and
throw a handful of this over the seed and
cover it. The plants invariably come up
vigorously, and when the value of this
mixture is in a measure exhausted, the
stable manure is in a condition to carry
along the growth without any checks. If
I happen to have any old brine in the Fall
I sprinkle that on. Such a compound is
admirable in the kitchen garden.
To make the most of the excrement it
should be exposed as much as possible to
some absorbent, and nothing is better
than pulverized muck. Twenty-five hens
will make from thirty to forty bushels of
the compound, according as attention is
paid to it, and it can be made so as to be
easily managed in dropping with the
hand. The more complete the mixture
the more efficient it will be. Verity, in
Corn required for a Pound of Pork.
For the benefit of hog raisers we give
the following table, to show the quantity
of corn required to produce a pound of
pork, and the price of pork, which seems
to be governed by the relative price of
corn : -
When corn costs 12 cents per bushel,
pork costs l cents per pound ; corn 17
cents per bushel, pork 2 cents per pound ;
corn 25 cents per bushel, pork 3 cents per
pound ; corn 35 cents per bushel, pork 4
cents per pound ; corn 42 cents per bushel,
pork 5 cents per pound; corn 50 cents
per bushel, pork 6 cents per pound.
Whether these figures are approximate
ly correct or not, they will serve as a
basis, at least, for careful calculations.
The first cotton planted in this
country wa9 in 1721, in South Carolina.
The plant was discovered growing wild
on the island of Hispaniola ; also, as far
north on the banks of the Mississippi as
the thirtieth parallel of latitude, and it
has been proved to be indigenous to the
soil of the lower latitudes of North
America. W. Ellitt, in 1790, gathered
the first successful cotton crop in South
Carolina, and within a few years cotton
cultivation became general in the extreme
Pip in poultry is a symptom of
disease, and not. itself a disease; it is
commonly an affection of the air-passages,
which compels the fowl to breathe through
its mouth, becoming dry in consequence.
A bard substance forms at the end of the
tongue, sometimes extending to the roof
of the month ; this causes the noisy
breathing which produces the sound of pip.

abroad ; -ftI would rather have a grave in
America than a home in Europe."
