Sowing Small Grain.
Sowing ' grain, unfortunately with most
farmers, means just that old careless,
slovenly manner of scattering the costly
seed and turning them under, consoling
themselves that they have done the work,
and expect a retun of a" crop, by accident,
perhaps ; for it i an accident if they make
a part of a crop, with weeds and turf, all
half broken, turned up over the seed, with
an ancient half worn turning plow, run
ning two inches under the1 surface. Un
fortunately these farmers, least fitted with
implements of cultivation, and most indif
ferent as to work, are the very ones who
need most suppli, and journals and pa-,
pers don't reach them, or if told of the
value of time and labor in putting in grain
properly, will say.'This is too much
trouble and expense.' I will slap it in as
my father did, and let it do what it will."
The cultivation of , grain en thin or ex
hausted land in this way is more than a
loss of work, and had better be left alone.
Even on thin soil, with good prepara
tion and the seed put in properly, either
turned in with a plow afterwards or put
in with a cultivator or harrow, and the
land left smooth by the harrow, will often
make a fair return, if done in the Fall
Your writer begs to offer the following
experience for years past in making mott
of rye and oats as a food for work animals,
saving space of ground, work and much
labor of harvesting, preparing best lots,
or small areas of land, using either cotton
seed or a fertilizer economically on the
plowed surface. The seed are distributed
as follows: Not less than two and a half
bushels of oats or one and a half bushels
of rye per acre. A cultivator is then
dragged over this and a harrow across the
cultivator way. This leaves the land in
smooth, beautiful order for the cradle,
scythe blade, or mower or reaper. When
the rye, which is just large enough to
feed, is ready, stock is given a little green
every day. As soon as the rye is in full
bloom still the stalk is green before
seed are formed, put the mower into it
and make rye hay. Did you ever mow
and save rye hay ? It only requires one
bright, sunlit day in our beautiful South
ern May climate to cure rye. Rake it up
topsy-turvy with your horse rake, and
haul it in or stack it for future or imme
diate use. Now, soon the oats are in
bloom, and your horses and mules much
prefer this food, cut whilst green, a little
every day. When the seed are in a
dough state, and the stalk is still green,
put the mower through, and make hay of
this, using horse rake like in the rye no
binding in sheaves. It takes two days of
sun to cure oats into hay. With this oat
hay, you have got corn and fodder, and
if much of ityonr horses won't need corn
or fodder. They will quit this latter food
and eat the oat hay, not leaving a stalk
of it. Green and sweet ; you have cured
in the stalk all the elements of perfect
food, in good dilution, that , would have
been manufactured up into seed, when the
stalk would be worthless. Your rye hay
may now rest till Fall or Winter, when
your horses will consume, with a little
corn, every sprig of this. You will leave
enough of either grain in parts of your
patch to mature for seed, to be cut and
put in bundles for seed, at the proper
time. I was driven to this plan to avoid,
annually, a loss of a part, or all, of my
oat crop. Just as my gram was ripening
and seed perfecting, annually, I found
rust on my oat stalks. Now, the stalk in
my climate is always unhealthy at this
particular time, and a rain wets it like
paper, and the least wind lodges it. The
grain all falls down. A dry time is abso
lutely necessary to save my ripe grain.
Cut at the period above mentioned, I
never lose my oat crop. I get all and in
most healthy order, for the disease has
not exhibited itself at this period. Only
occasionally you see a little rust at the
bottom of the stalk. Now, a small area
of wheat treated and fed in the same way
helps along, and hogs fatten on it when in
- the green or dough state. Some one will
say : "But don't you injure your land by
this plan?" I only take in dilution, per
haps the same amount of potash, phos
phate lime, or starch, or gluten, that
would have been stored up in the ripe
seed. But, suppose I injure the land ? I
must only feed it more; give back to it
by rest and manure.
Small areas of good land treated in this
way are worth as one to ten of the old
sloven way to cradle all day in weeds
and briars and not make wages. I have
not estimated what a rich acre of rye or
oats will yield in hay treated in this way.
More than the ordinary richest grass for
these are but luxuriant annual grasses.
'-' If the earliest, most certain return of
grain in way ol green soiling or hay is
desired, the drill system, with the manure
in the furrow with the grain, will give it.
For early cutting, in December perhaps,
certainly in February here, lay off rows
th ree feet apart on broken surface, and
drill in same amount of seed as for broad
cast. Of rye, oats or wheat, drill in
manure or fertilizer, three hundred pounds
per acre, and cover with a double scooter.
When the weeds show themselves in the
middles, I put the sweep or small culti
vator through. This stimulates the grain,
and the growth is most wonderfully rapid,
giving two or three cuttings betore being
expended. Rye will give three. The
largest crops per acre of grain are grown
uy tms arm system. W. JS. Jones in
Carrying all their Egs in one Basket.
This Is the great mistake made by our
farmers throughout the Southern States,
they carry all their eggs in one basket,
and if they make a mishap in this thing
they get iuto a bad fix. The practice of
devoting every farm, or almost or quite
the whole of every farm, to the cultiva
tion of only one particular article and then
depend on buying whatever else they
need, is certainly very unwise and ruin
ous. To raise 500 bushels of corn, 200
bushels of wheat, 1,000 pounds of pork;
wuu a nice lot ol potatoes, peas, fcc, and
a few bales of coUon extra, would be a
thousand times better than to raise 20
bales of cotton and nothing else. No one
would want to eat the same thing every
day the whole year round, it would not
be wholesome. So neither is it good to
try to make the soil produce one and the
same thing for many years together, it is
not wholesome for the soil. , A man would
not risk his life to the use of only one oar
in crossing a ferry, so no wise or prudent
farmer will risk the support of his family
on the production of one article alone.
If that should ; fail, as is often the case,
and he has nothing else to fall back on,
his condition would be anything else than
agreeable. , A dollar saved is a dollar
made, and this applies to a county or a
State as well as to an individual. The
county or State that produces nothing
but cotton must send away its cotton
money for eorn,r potatoes, bacon, &c.
This leaves the county or State compara
tively without means and without money.
No country can or will prosper, to auy
perceptible degree, or acquire wealth and
independence so long as it attempts to
carry all its eggs in one basket. II. in
' Forty years ago Messrs. Laws and Gil
bert, two of the most scientific farmers of
England, commenced a series of experi
ments in growing wheat. They selected
several plots of ground of equal size, on
some of which they tried the different
fertilizers, while on others, the land hav
ing already been brought up to the high
est state of fertility, no fertilizers were
applied, but on all of them wheat was
made to follow wheat 'season after season
lor forty years. In that time there has
been i decrease in the yield just ten
bushels per acre, or one-fourth of a bushel
per acre a year. Taking this as a stand
ard" case, farmers who follow wheat with
wheat without giving the land the needed
rest, or feeding it with manure or green
crops turned under, may look' for a de
crease, less, of course, some years than
others, but an average of one-fourth of a
bushel per acre a year. This is a practi
cal outcome from these celebrated experi
ments, for which the farmers of the entire
world may thank Messrs. Laws and Gil
Mucn has been written on the subject
of Ensilage, though not sufficiently tried
to prove its efficacy. The friends of the
method have constructed silos, at the
Atlanta Exposition, solely for the benefit
of the farming public. If it proves a suc
cess it will certainly be of immense value
to the South, enable her to utilize much
that is now useless and lessen greatly the
expense of keeping her stock. The Con
stitution has this to say of them:
"Mr. Mark Hardin was busily engaged
at the Exposition filling two silos with
ensilage. One is a model silo and is
bricked up and cemented, while the other
is plain, and the walls are the natural
clay with a coating of cement. Mr.
Hardin bad an engine and cutter running
yesterday cutting up potato vines, sor
ghum, pea vines, rag weeds, etc., with
which the silos were being filled. When
full there will be twenty-five tons of the
ensilage. A Constitution reporter asked
Mr. Hardin how much it would take to
keep a horse a day. He replied :
"It will take about sixty pounds per
day for a horse, and we will have it fed
to stock right here during the three
months, as it will be ready in a few days."
"When will Dr. Bailey, the great en
silage man, be here ?"
"The last of this month."
"This stuff," continued the reporter,
"looks like a sort of a chow chow. I
guess stock takes kindly to it?"
"There is nothing better; everything
likes it. If we had a little pepper and
vinegar we could eat some of it ourselves."
Cotton Seed Oil.
All are aware of the fact that this ar
ticle in its refined form is now largely
used as an article ol food, b or several
years past it has been largely exported to
Italy and Spain, mixed in the proportion
of two to one with olive oil and then sold
in the markets of the world as "pure
It is stated that in Maine, cotton Beed
oil, without admixture, is used in putting
up herring, the cans labelled in t rench
and sold as "French Sardines, put up in
the best olive oil." Verily, the food ques
tion is assuming: new relations and condi
tions : with the oleomargarine (ox-butter,)
silver drips, (corn meal syrup or glucose,)
pure cider vinegar, (sulphuric acid and
water,) and, finally, cotton seed oil is sold
for "pure olive oil." We are informed
that the refined oil is largely used in the
culinary department in those cities where
oil mills are located. It is claimed that
the oil is in no wise inferior to the best
lard for making bread, frying, and other
uses of the kitchen ; and that it is per
fectly wholesome. With lard at seven
teen cents per pound, a proper substitute
at half the cost is an interesting and prac
tical question, and we are iuformed that
the refined oil can be had at seventy-five
cents per gallon.
It is a very short-sighted prejudice that
would object to the use of such an article.
No sufficient reason can be assigned why
we should not freely accept and use this
home-made Southern product, and thus
contribute to the development of our re
sources and the encouragement of a most
The furor in the North which invokes
prohibitive legislation against oleomar
garine is all wrong in our humble judg
ment, especially as it seems to be confined
to the dairy interest and not to the con
sumers. If oleo butter is proven to be
unwholesome absolutely deleterious to
health, its manufacture and sale ought to
be 6trictly regulated so that consumers
may not be imposed on to their hurt.
But if it is so nearly like the genuine cow
butter in color, texture, flavor and chemi
cal analysis, as to deceive the very elect,
and it is not shown to be deleterious to
health, we can't see the sense of so much
fuss about it, especially since consumers
seem to take but little interest in the
The manufacture of glucose syrup from

ous substance is much more liable to

urgently for legislative interference and
supervision than the other. Yes, thou

ference for it as against the best raw
