; : Farmine in the North. : : .
vRevl Dr. Pritchard, President of Wake
Fewest College, who spent several weeks
in Pennsylvania thin. Summer, writes the
; fnllrtwW to the Raleigh Biblical Re
corder in regard to Northern farming:
"The system of farming in the North is
different from that which prevails in the
South. In the first place, by reason ot a
difference in soil and climate, the pro-
: ducts are not the same. They . grow no
v cotton in the North, and not a great deal
of tobacco. Their, principal crops are
wheat, corn, oats, potatoes, Irish and
" sweet, and grass. I do not know that the
r eoil originally was very much better than
ourssome richer it doubtless was at
first, but it has been made far more vigor
ous and productive, by. wise' cultivation.
The farms are much - smaller than in the
Southland this is a great item. The
State of Mississippi had forty thousand
farms before the war, which averaged
three hundred and seventy acres each.
Since the war the average size of the
- farms is not more than half so large, and
the entire acreage not so great, and yet
that State raises twice as much cotton as
hpfor thfl war. The smaller farms are
far better cultivated and hence produce
more. The farms are still too large in
all the middle States, and three or four
times the size they should be in the South
4 generally. It requires no Solomon to see
that if a man can raise as much on fifty
acres of land as he now does on a hun
dred, it would be much cheaper and more
satisfactory in every way for him to cul
tivate but the nity. 11 our people would
sell half or two-thirds of their land and
put the proceeds of sale on that which
they have left, their condition would be
The soil is much more carefully pre
pared Deiore ine crop is put in. jeep
plowing is the rule up here; then the
ground is harrowed, and for some crops
rolled. Wheat is always sowed in drill.

planted in rows, four by five feet apart,
but there are two and sometimes three
stalks in a hill. I do not think the stalk
, is so heavy as with ns, but an acre pro
duces about twice as much. The fodder
is not pulled, but so soon as the maturity
01 tne ear win permit, tne stains are cut,
tied into large bundles and stacked. Be
fore Christmas it is brought to the barn,
the corn pulled and the' stalk, with the
fodder on, used as forage. Mr. Pendle
ton, a grain merchant of New York, told
me that be had recently sold 5,000 bushels
of what is called aourd seed corn, raised
in North Carolina which produces a tall
stalk, to farmers in New York State, for
ensilage purposes, and I learn from vari
ous quarters that this method of prepar
ing forage for stock is coming into much
use in the North.
, I took tea with a Mr. Cook in Salem
xr T 0ut :, a k.
. told me that he had paid for his -farm,
costing $6,000, in a few years, from his
potatoes and watermelon crops. The
wheat, corn and grass of the farm sup
ported bis family, and the clear money he
had made was from the sale of sweet and
, Irish potatoes and watermelons, and he
lived forty miles from Philadelphia, but
on the Delaware river, which afforded
cheap transportation. The Irish potatoe
is a large item in the food of the people
North, and fields of this vegetable are
cultivated in all parts of the country.'
Graes is probably worth as much, or more
than the corn or wheat of this country.
The soil is much better adapted to the
production of clover and grasses than with
us, and every farmer makes a great deal of
hay. . Asa consequence fine stock abounds
the cows are ol fine breeds and seem on
the average about twice as large as ours.
' There are many excellent breeds of sheep,
hogs and horses to be found up here, and
much pride is taken in this department of
1 husbandry. Stock is not allowed to run
out in this country. ' The farming lands of
Pennsylvania and New York are worth
from lorty to a hundred, and some, even
two hundred dollars an acre. Farming is
much more neatly done up here than with
us, and the . mort improved agricultural
implements are used. I hae frequently
seen a hay 6tack covered with a piece of
canvass on the top, and.it ia usual to pile
dd the hav or straw between four costs, to
which is attached a sliding cover of wood.
The barns are much larger and more costly
than with us; especially is this the case
among the German population. There
are many other things I have noticed about
the farms of this country, but I must pass
on, as I wish to write about some of the
religious castoma ot the people with whom
Ihave been sojourning." :
Exhaustion and Recuperation.
" - The importance of - sound practice, , no
iless than sound' views, in regard to ex
haustion and recuperation of the soil can
; not be overestimated. Unless the farmer
:can preserve and increase the ; fertility;': of
his lands, as year by year he crops them,
he is slowly but surely losing ground, and
will sooner or later be brought to want if
ha does not mend his practice. The native
' or natural fertility of land is the country's
( vital strength, and the improvement of
.this land so as to make it doubly or trebly
productive is the nation's power in the
marts of the world, i This is also true of
each individual farm and man who is en
gaged in farming. ,;
; It follows, then, that all exhaustion of
'the soil which is not immediately replac
ed) is a gradual sapping of the- vital force
of individual and national prosperity and
decline in both must be looked for in pro-
E onion to the rate of that exhaustion,
tow, important, then, that farmer, look
well. to their ways, and strive not only to
prevent depletion but to promote recuper
ation. , .,"".. ...;. '!
In the occupancy of newly cleared land,
there is a. tendency, to a great waste ol the
virgin fertility, until, the Owner discovers
that the laud is giving back and needs re
cuperating., But then . the Work is too
burdensome, and ten to one recuperation
is never adequate to the necessities of ihe
case. The true way is,' to so cultivate and
crop as to add something to the fertility
every year. Nature is a most wonderful
helper, if but the farmer will meet her ef
m8in JU8t tbe:rigbi:timeand right way.
rhishe must be miodiol to do year by
year, and then the work of increasing the
fertility of the soil becomes comparatively
easy and inexpensive. . This J& the true
course, which ought always to be pursued
where the land is now in good plight: a '

Another method of recuperation is by
pasturing to sheep. And here lies one of
the greatest benefits that many an Atlan
tic seaboard farmer could derive from this
aninal. - Take any field in any, condition
tnat it may nappen io oe in, puv o ujujr

living from its grass and. shrubs, let
them pasture it thoroughly three years,
return nothing to the land except what
the sheep deposit in a natural way ; yet
the land will increase in fertility to a
But why continue to " give methods ?
The enterprising farmer wbo will think is
able to devise his own plans and methods,
and the dilatory and doubting world not
act. were we to advance a hundred. We
can only hope that one example of good
farming here and there will eveutually
lead all to adopt a sound practice, ana
then poor farms will be the exception and
not the rule. Rural Messenger.'
A Famous Kentucky Grape.
We clip the following from the Louis
ville Journal's second day's proceedings
of the Kentucky Horticultural Society :
The members assembled at 2 o clock,
when a paper was read by, Mr. M. S.
Combs, of Bullitt county, on the propaga
tion of new varieties ef fruit, which was
very interesting, and brought out a dis
cussion which lasted through the after
noon. While the grape was under discus
sion President Kennedy related the history
of a native Kentucky grape, which was
not only interesting, but very remarkable.
He said that between the years 1830 and
1840 Col. Cuthbert Bullitt discovered a
grape vine growing in a fence corner on
his farm in Shelby county. The grapes
which grew upon the wild Kentucky vine
were of a very fine quality, and became
famous in that section of the country. Col.
Bullitt sold his farm a few years subse
quent to the discovery of the grape-vine,
and, at the sale, his brother-in-law, Judge
John G. Taylor, of Jericho, Henry county,
took some cuttings from the vine and pro
pagated them in his garden, and in a few
years the variety was distributed through
several counties, and became known as the
"Taylor Grape," though the original was
called the Bullitt Grape.
In 1854, in order to avoid contusion, the
Kentucky Horticultural Society Col.
Kennedy was President of the society at
that time effected a compromise and
adopted the name Taylor's Bullitt, and
the grape has been so designated ever
since. From the cuttings of this old vine
have sprung some of the choicest, hardest
and mosL popular seedlings of the present
day. ' They are grown in several different
States, and give promise of becoming the
standard grapes of the country. Mr. Sack
steder stated that at the recent meeting of
the Mississippi Valley Horticultural So
ciety there was exhibited a grand-child
variety of the old parent vine the Etta
which he considered the most perfect
grape in all respects that he ever saw. But
the fame of the Kentucky vine does not
rest solely on the rich quality of the fruit
of its descendants. The wine-growers of
France, Spain and Portugal have become
acquainted with its hardy nature and are
now depending upon it for protection
against the destructive march of the insect
known as the phylloxera or root louse,
which a few years ago bade fair to devas
tate the vineyard of Europe.. The root of
the Taylor's Bullitt vine is hard and wiry
and not affected by the root louse and the
wine-growers of Europe are renewing
their vineyards with cuttings from it on
which they graft their native varieties.
The prunings from Taylor's Bullitt are
saved and exported to Europe to become
the one from which the native grape must
The Government of France offered a re
ward for the destruction of the root louse,
and many devices have been resorted to in
order to protect the vine-yards; but the
hardy old Kentucky stock has thus far
proved their only safely. In 1874 Presi
dent Kennedy gave his prunings for ex
port to begin tne experiment, and the
business has been conducted to a large
scale ever since. One firm in Missouri has
shipped during the past season over 20,000
of these cuttings.
The latest novelty in the " live stock"
business is leech farming, .as carried on a
thirteen-acre tract near New York city.
The tract is devoted to small ponds hav
ing clay bottoms, and are margined with
peat. 1 he leeches form their gelatinous
cocoons in these peat margins, crawl into
them at the open end and deposit their
eggs during the month of June. By Sep
tember the warmth of the sun hatches out
the young, varying in number from thir
teen to twenty-seven from each '.cocoon.
During the summer months the water in
the pond is kept at about three feet; in
winter the depth is increased to prevent
freezing the leeches. Leeches are not ex
pensive feeders, a meal of fresh blood once
in six months being their only diet. The
blood is put in linen bags and suspended
in the water. The leeches attach them
selves" to the bag and remain uutil gorged
with the blood, when they drop off into
the water. The owner reports, that his
sales amount to about .1,000 letches per
day, the most of them going to the West
and South. He makes this new branch of
farming quite profitable. ;

I Economizing Food.-
Much depends on the warmth and com
fort of the accommodations for animals in
this respect. V It is the food that produces
animal heat, or 'rather that keeps it up;
and the farmer can economize that food,
and make one-half of it go about as far as
the whole would by keeping his stock in
warm comfortable winter, quarters. The
cold wind penetrates through every crevice
the cold will find its way through. If
you would . economize your food, look
thoroughly to the warmth and condition
of your barns and stables ; for herein lies
the great secret of success in saving food.
"Stop out the cold, and , you can keep
more stock upon the same, amount of
food," is the verdict of the past and present
age. .:-.-.!-,: ; ; '
